What can the world expect 1 in the next 12 months? From the western states and Washington, D.C., outstanding men in the field of international affairs joined five university presidents last night to take part in the 17th annual Institute of World Affairs in an attempt to answer this question. Meeting at the Mission inn in Riverside, the savants together with newspaper editors and former diplomats of Europe and Asia, started the institute at 8 p.m. It will extend through Friday. Although no resolutions were passed, the 78 delegates gathered to exchange study and experiences on military, political, and social affairs concerning war-troubled nations. The institute is under the chancellorship of Dr. Rufus B. von KleinSmid, with Dr . Eliot G. Mears of Stanford university serving as general director. PRESIDENT WELCOMES In his welcoming address, Dr. von KleinSmid said, “The leadership at Riverside this year speak out of strange and startling experience, where in free America their news is not censored and their right to think and express those thoughts is untrammeled. At Riverside we may not find the way out of it at all, but we shall at least hear the way in, know where the problems lie from their frank statement and wise consideration. “The institute this year is better prepared than ever before by intimate knowledge to discuss international issues,” Dr. von KleinSmid said. “We see peace slipping away but none of us feels for a moment that world peace is a lost cause. It i* still possible.” Opening the sessions with the first of the series of public evening lectures, Dr. Everett Dean Martin of Claremont colleges spofce on “The Nature of the Present Conflict." “The European war was given its opportunity,” he said, “because democratic nations did not succeed in establishing federated world order in which peace would be maintained in the only way peace can be established under reign of law.” TOPICS LISTED Three addresses wiH be given daily during each morning session, and round-table discussions will follow throughout each day. They will be climaxed Dy evening lectures at 8 p.m. The general topic theme for today will be “Economic Factor* in World Affairs;” tomorrow, “Educational and Propaganda Factors in World Affairs;” Wednesday, “Political and Ideological Situations;” Thursday, “United States’ Foreign Policy;” and Friday, “Planning for World Peace.” Participants who recently returned from Europe, where they secured behind - the - headlines interviews with leading dignitaries, include Dr. Chester Rowell, former editor of the San Francisco Chronicle; Dr. Claude A. Buss, SC professor in international relations, and Adamantios Th. Polyzoides, lecturer in international relations and journalism.

Neyland and his likewise unbeaten Tennessee Volunteers to be the opponents of Southern California New Year's day. VOLS SURE OF BID Needless to say, Tennessee accepted. With a victory string of 23 consecutive games to back them up, the Vols were the logical choice. So certain were the southerners of getting this bid. that they turned down an invitation to play in the New Orleans' Sugar Bowl early last week. Southern California earned the right to represent the West in the Pasadena classic when it held the ‘keyed up” Bruins of UCLA to a scoreless tie before the record-breaking crowd. Although favored to dump the Westwooders by one or two touchdowns. SC had to fight off a last-minute rally. SC GETS MAJORITY Despite the fact that Saturday's deadlock was the third suffered by UCLA !h conference play this season, plus one non-conference tie rell and his men still had hopes of getting the invitation to Pasadena. But it was the decision of the majority of the conference members that the Trojans had the better record, in that they had been tiec but twice.
