Feb. 20— Foreign Secretary Anthony Eden. Europe’s ‘boy diplomat” and ardent foe of dictators, resigned tonight in opposition to Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain's plan to reach a speedy settlement of British relations with Germany and Italy. The 40-year-old foreign minister, who has been the directing force of British foreign policy since December 22. 1935, when he succeeded Sir Samuel Hoare in the foreign office, submitted his resignation after two hectic days of cabinet sessions. HALIFAX MAY FOLLOW It was believed that he would be replaced by Viscount Halifax, lord president of the council and outstanding champion of friendship with Fuehrer Adolf Hitler and Premier Benito Mussolini, as quickly as possible even though it means British submission to some of their chief demands. Eden confirmed to friends, shortly after leaving a session of key ministers at No. 10 Downing street at 7:40 p.m., that he had relinquished his major post in the government. The cabinet was summoned into session at 10 p.m. (5 pjn. EST), supposedly to act formally on the resignation. It was the second meeting of the full cabinet during the day and the third since Saturday noon. MINISTERS MEET This afternoon the full list of ministers, all but a scant few of whom appeared to have been opposed to Eden, met for three hours and 25 minutes—their longest session in years. After tonight’s cabinet meeting Lord Halifax remained behind at No. 10 Downing street with Chamberlain. A debate will be held in the house of commons Monday on the crisis, following formal statements by Continued on Page Four TRYOUTS INDICATE CAPABLE CAST TO PLAY LILIOM' “It can be cast” was the decision of Mrs. Florence Hubbard, play productions director, after watching the first day’s tryouts for parts in “Liliom,” winner of play production’s student poll conducted last week. Assured that from the material which appeared Friday I--——-——-—-fcshe will be able to find a cast with sufficient dramatic ability to carry the acting assignments of Molnar’s celebrated play, Mrs. Hubbard announced Friday that casting will continue today and tomorrow at 2 p.m. in 122 Old College.

Scenarists Open Workshop In order to centralize and unify the supply of topics and plots for experimental production of short motion pictures, a scenario workshop has been established by the department of cinematography. Under the leadership of seven chairmen, groups of approximately five members will meet separately once a week to study and discuss suggestions of stories for production. The members will be students of the department. The chairmen will confer every two weeks to compare and adapt the ideas originated in the various groups. The leaders are: Thomas Omaley, Leonard Ingles. Josephine Crawford, Jane Lewis, Robert Purinton, Frances McBeth, and Joseph Feldman. String Group To Perform Sunday Mozarl, Thompson, Ravel To Be Presented By Pro Arle Quartet Works of Ravel, Thompson, and Mozart will comprise the first of a series of five programs to be presented in Bovard auidtorium at 4 p.m. Sunday, February 27, by the Pro Arte quartet under the sponsorship of the Elizabeth Sprague Coolidge foundation. The quartet, which first became famous in Europe, was brought to America by Mrs. Coolidge in 1923 where it has appeared at most of the important music centers. Organized by a group of young musicians in 1912, the Pro Arts quartet first played essentially youthful music of today and former times. As its fame spread over Europe, it was chosen to introduce new. works at the Salzburg international festivals. For many years it has given an annual quartet series in Paris as well as making extensive tours. In 1923, Mrs. Coolidge chose the Pro Arte quartet to perform works at the American academy in Rome for which prizes were offered by the Coolidge foundation. The impression was so favorable that Mrs. Coolidge brought the entire quartet to America. Their first appearance was in Washington, D. C., at the Library of Congress. Members of the quartet are Alphonse Onnou, first violin; Lament Halleux, second violin; Germain Prevost, viola; and Robert Maas, ’cello. Recently they have spent several summers at Mills college through the generosity of Mrs. Coolidge. There they offered concerts, lectures, and courses in ensemble. Other concerts ln southern California are being given at Pomona college, Claremont, where a Beethoven series is being offered; and in Long Beach. The program for the first of the U.S.C. series is as follows: Quartet in F Major................ Ravel The Wind in the Willows ............ ............................................. Thompson Quartet in B Major ........... Mozart Admission to all of the concerts is free, and the public is invited. Hitler Upholds Policies Germany Enlarges Army 'To Defend Political Freedom' in Austria Warner Given Wampus Post NOMINATED NO PARTS ASSIGNED None of the 40 available “Liliom” parts, including the seven main roles, have as yet been assigned, and anyone in the university interested is requested by Mrs. Hub bard to attend tryouts this afternoon and Tuesday. Sixty-five aspirants were present last Friday. Production dates for “Liliom” have been set for March 31 and April 1 and 2, in Touchstone theater. Most difficult part to be cast is that of the lead, Liliom, the circus barker who, although a rogue, is loved by a trusting servant girl, Julie. CHARACTERS NAMED Other characters include Sparrow, crook; Mrs. Muskat, hard-boiled proprietress of the circus carousel; Marie, the naive, sweet friend of Julie; young Hollander, a photographer and comedian of the play; and Wolf, Marie’s boy friend. Ben Marshall, producer of the play, will light the production in accordance with the new vogue on Broadway in which the background lighting is subordinate to the lighting of the characters in the foreground.

A. and L.A.J.C., will send student speakers to more than 200 churches in southern California on Brotherhood day. Bill Quinn, chairman of the U.S.C. Brotherhood day committee, announced yesterday. The University Religious conference is sponsoring the observance, which will take place Sunday, February 27. Set aside by proclamation of President Roosevelt, Brotherhood day is to emphasize the> similarities common to all religious sects and to bring about a better cooperation between Catholics, Jews, and Protestants. Quinn is seeking to have as many campus organizations represented in the observance as possible. More than 130 invitations have been issued to student speakers to appear in 31 surrounding Southland cities, and more will be given within the next few days. Students desiring to speak in churches are requested by Quinn to obtain further information at the religious conference office, 229 Student Union. Students selected as speakers will be expected to attend one of the three training periods scheduled for today and Wednesday. Two such periods will be conducted today at the west end of the social lounge on the third floor of the Student Union at 1:30 p.m. and 3 p.m. A third one will take place Wednesday during assembly period. Speakers who have already received their invitations are asked by Quinn to attend one of the seminars today.

Nordskog will speak on “The Italian Renaissance.” Later in the month, on March 28, Prof. Paul R.

Pettengill will speak on the “Significance of the Industrial Revolution,” and Dr. M. J. Vincent will discuss “The Problem of Modem Culture.” BERLIN, Feb. 20—(L.P)—Germany is strengthening her army under a new Nazi policy to “defend the political freedom” of 10,000,000 Germans living in Austria and Czechoslovakia, Reichfuehrer Adolf Hitler gff told the world today in a three-hour spech before the reichstag. Hitler notified the German people and the world that he intends to pursue vigorously and uncompromisingly those policies in European and world politics which he inaugurated when he became chancellor five years ago and is expanding Germany’s armed forces. DENOUNCES DEMOCRACIES In the speech to the reichstag, the dictator, in bristling language, denounced world democracies; reiterated his determination to follow a vigorous policy in opposition to Soviet Russia; reaffirmed his collaboration with Fascist Italy and militarist Japan, and threatened retaliation against a large part of the world press for the “poisonous” anti-German activities. Stripped of verbiage the address meant that Germany will continue her efforts to destroy the last vestiges of the general settlements which followed the World war; will insist that the “have not” nations must be restored to a basis of equality with the “have” powers, and is prepared to defy any combination of powers which may be formed against her. WILL IGNORE POWERS Der Fuehrer's speech in the Kroll opera house, carried by radio to Austrian and Czechoslovakian minorities beyond the reich’s borders, lacked any pledge to uphold Austrian independence and integrity as had been anticipated in many capitals. Hitler made it clear that Germany will ignore Great Britain and France, as well as other western powers, in carrying out the new phase of her international policy to Continued on Page Four Jack Warner, whose nomination for editorship of the Wampus by the publications board will be finally passed on by the student senate Wednesday afternoon. QuestClubTo Hear Debater CIO Discussion To Be Judged By Teams' Hosls Knopf To Speak In Bovard The “Relation of Religion to Health and College Success” will be discussed by Dr. Carl S. Knopf Wednesday in Bovard auditorium when he inaugurates the first alluniversity religion assembly of the semester. “This is not a health talk,” said Dean Knopf, “but will show the effect of certain attitudes and states of mind. It is based upon psychological and biological principles which any student can apply in an effort to do something definitely constructive about crowded programs and low grades.” Mimeographed copies of the diagrams and charts dealing with the material covered in Dr. Knopf’s talk will be available to students attending the assembly. The religion assemblies conducted by the dean of the School of Religion, will be continued on the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month for the remainder of the semester. COLLEGE DEAN INJURED FAIRFIELD. Feb. 20— (U.E>— Dean Fred L. Farley of the College of Pacific was critically injured here tonight when his automobile was struck by a speeding Southern Pacific passenger train at Rio Vista crossing. Interfraternity Forum To Begin This Week The Interfratemity forum, inaugurated by the Interfratemity council and under the administration of of the Trojan YMCA, will get under way with its first meeting next Thursday night, at 7:30 p.m., at the Sigma Phi Epsilon house, 630 West 28th street. The purpose of the bi-weekly gatherings, according to Bob Matzke, president of the Trojan “Y,” is to aid fraternity men in obtaining a clear and comprehensive view of current world affairs through discussion with qualified faculty experts. In accordance with this purpose, the “Y” has secured Prof. Adamantios Th. Polyzoides, lecturer in international relations, to lead the first discussion. The topic to be discussed is “America’s Place in the Next War.” The Interfratemity council has discussed the “Y”-spccisored project and have pledged their full support to it, Fred Hall, president of the council, said. Hall will open the forum and will introduce Dr. Polyzoides. Hal Olson, YMCA chairman of the forum, says that the forums will not be lectures, but will consist of discussions by the students under the leadership of members of the faculty. Besides offering entertainment to members of the Quest club, tonight’s debate between the Trojan teams of Nellie Clark and Marjorie Atkinson, and the men’s team of Sterling Livingston and Maurice Atkinson at 6 o’clock in the Mayflower hotel, will serve as practice for the coming Stanford encounter. “Resolved: that the program of the CIO is detrimental to the best interest of labor,” is the question to be used. The women have the affirmative while the men take the negative side. Composed of well-known Los An geles employers, the Quest club has had a great deal of experience with the CIO. Since the members are to act as judges, the contest will enable the Trojans to better prepare for the opening league debate. Next Friday night the men’s squad opens its regular season against the top team from Stanford. The Trojans will oppose the visitors in Bovard auditorium, with the women’s team meeting those from Stanford on Saturday. In Friday’s debate, the CIO question is to be used. Coach Trevor Hawkins has named the same two teams that take part in tonight’s contest to represent the university agains the Indians.
