EDDY DIRECTS Director of tonight's dance is Tom Eddy, who assisted the university’s hostess, Betty Jane Bartholomew'. In charge ol the committee which will decorate the gym is Roland Dillon. Tonight's event will be one of the last to be sponsored by the associated students during the present semester, and admission will be by student body book or upon payment of 25 cents at the door. MEETING DISMISSED Sorority and fraternity meetings will be adjourned early to allow students to attend. The orchestra which has been chosen for the dance recently completed an engagement at the Roosevelt hotel. Students who wish to earn activity points are requested to meet in the men’s gym at 3:30 p.m. today, Tom Eddy said. They will be asked to help in the decoration work; Chamber Names S.C. President Committee Head Dr. Rufus B von KleinSmid, president of the university, was slated to head the Los Angeles chamber of commerce committee on education for 1939 at a recent meeting of the organization. Dr. von KleinSmid's name was placed on the ballot of 42 officers and directors, which will be voted upon next Wednesday in the annual election of the chamber. He was nominated, as were the other 41 officers, in accordance with the champer s by-laws, and the election of the entire slate of officers was expected to be only a formality. Graduate Dean Reveals Dates Of Examinations Dean Rockwell D Hunt of the Graduate School, announced yesterday that language examinations for those wishing to obtain Doctor of Philosophy degrees will begin January 17.

Dr. Travis and SJaardema contend that action goes on in the brain before a stimulus has reached it as opposed to the view held by many psychologists that brain reactions only follow reception of a | stimulus. When reduced to an example, the old theory would hold that lf one were to see a light, the mind would begin working but as long as that light was not visible, the mind would remain dormant. The experiments now being conducted would seem to indicate that if a person were to imagine he saw a light, his brain would react in much the same manner as lf he" had actually seen the light, or, reaction without stimulus. | To carry on this experiment, which is technically known as "The | Study of the Temporal Course of Consciousness,” delicate and spe-! cialized equipment had to be as-j sembled. A special electrically i shielded room was constructed in . the laboratory in w’hich was in-| stalled an electro-enceohalograph. Procedure for carrying on an experiment consists of attaching an electrode to the occipital lobe of Kuhlman. the brain at the back of the skull and another at the lobe of the ear. [ As the subject sits in a chair pro- j vided in the booth, the electrical j impulses sent out by the brain are j carried through the wires to an amplifier. The amplifier in turn sends the amplified waves into a recorder that records the waves on a roll of tape by means of an inked stylus. From these tape records of what happens inside the brain, Dr. Travis and SJaardema expect to establish the relation between the brain waves and the thinking processes. The present experiment is an extension of work begun by Dr. Travis while he was still at the University of Iowa. The two men expect to conduct tests throughout this year before they reach any definite conclusion. Subjects for the experiments have been recruited mainly from the ranks of students although Dr. Tyler of the General hospital staff. Dr. Travis, and Mrs. Sjaa dema are also acting as subjects. Students whose brain currents are now being measured at regular intervals are Olga Neil. Eileen Lucas, Oscar Lieffers, Jane Larsen, Melba Corley. Betty Bally. Eileen Blu-menthal, Frances Atkins, and Thane Presents University Philanthropists Gift to Troy Realism Trend in Movies Seen by Forum Speaker Speaking at Friday’s cinema forum on “New Techniques in Film Writing,” Milton Sterling, Twentieth Century-Fox scenario writer, predicted that the movies will soon go through a change, in which a large part will be played by * the writers.

Allan Hancock, it j was announced last Friday. Dr. Rufus B. von KlenSmid formally accepted the vessel on behalf jof the board of trustees. COLLEGES GIVEN COLLECTIONS The 198-foot cruiser will be used, as ln the past, for extensive explorations along the coasts of California, Mexico, Central nnd South America, and ln the tropical islands of the eastern Pacific ocean. Hancock collections, gathered during these trips, have been given j to colleges, zoos, and niuseun s ] throughout the country and are subjects of research for the world's scientists. Since her launching ln ! 1931. the Velero has made annual [cruises to the tropical seas in thc | interests of marine investigation. BRUCE EXPRESSES THANKS | In his statement of appreciation for the gilt of the vessel, Henry jW. Bruce, vice-president of thc uni-I versity, said. "The combination of (the Velero III as a means of continued scientific explorations, together with the Foundation building for research activities, makes S.C. a foremost West coast center for activities In the fields of zoology, botany, and .related subjects.'' Twin Diesel engines propel the Velero, and it has a fuel capacity of sufftolent size to enable thr ship to cruisa 10,000 miles without docking. Contributing to the scientific efficiency of the vessel are its modem laboratories and app&rtus. photographic dark rooms and camera equipment, and fresh food and water storage to supply a three months' expedition. Captain Hancock is a nttMve Californian whose father, Major Henry Hancock, is credited with surveying most of the Los Angeles metropolitan area. He owned the historic Rancho La Brea, which oovered that part of the city now comprising Hollywood and the Wilshire district. and paintings so that the outcome of the film can be predicted before Its production ls complete.
