WORK IN SHIFTS The secretaries in the registrar’s office worked in shifts at the task of informing Trojans on their efforts of last semester. They wore little rubber finger caps to save the wear and tear on their fingers as they went through the alphabet looking for Smythe, not Smith, Brown spelled with an e. and Robert Jones, not Roland Jones. “We work on hour shifts,” said one of the secretaries; “that is about all we can stand ai one time.” The two windows are labeled very clearly; students whose names begin with the letter A to L may get their grades at the north window. and letters M to Z are filed at the south window. In spite of this, there were a few who found that they had waited 10 minutes in the wrong line. “I don’t want to know what I got, anyway,” they muttered.

Fund Nets From Drive $1137 Alumni “The theocratic state, one in which the rule of God is the dominating factor, was at its greatest height of development and force during the middle ages.” This conclusion on the relative values of theocracy as a form of rule was drawn by Dr. John E. Boodin. professor emeritus of UCLA, who will address the Philosophy forum 4:15 p.m. today in Bowne hall. Dr. Boodin will show in his talk how theocracy dominated in the seventh century and how. several centuries later in the age of reason, it again held a high point in man's reasoning. j In analyzing the kinship of the | old Hebrew idea that the state was the servant of God and moral justice. Dr. Booden says that theocracy : presented a difficult situation with i the Hebrew people. However, he is in praise of the kinship of the peo- j pie of Israel in regard to this ques-j tion. IDEALS CHALLENGED “The development of theocracy in ^ j the Catholic church is praisewor-! thy.” Dr. Boodin remarked, “but the high point of the theory was the I part the popes of the middle ages had in its development.” Challenging the ideals of the med-j ieval thinkers, he will discuss the j strong national and realistic value of theocracy as it is formulated to- i ! day. WRITES BOOKS Dr. Boodin has written several i works on philosophy, the latest be- I ing "Social Mind” or “The Foundation of Social Philosophy.” Dr. Boo- j din is listed as a visiting professor ! at SC. having lectured in the forum series previously. !

PI KAS ADD NEW PLEDGE TO CLASS Addition to Fraternity Comes From Galapagos NEWCOMER LIVES ON VEGETABLES The Pi Kappa Alphas, of 814 West 28th street, are buying lots of avocados, carrots, and lettuce these days to indulge the rather discriminating tastes of the newest and most tin-usual member of their 1940 pledge class. The new pledge prefers to spend his time resting ofi the front lawn of the fratemity house, He never seems to attend classes. If he has a room in the house, he never seems to sleep there, for night after night finds him sleeping beneath the big palm tree on the Pi Kappa Alpha lawn. Perhaps the most remarkable thing about the new pledge is his age. His friends p.nd fraternity brothers estimate it at 100 years, although he himself has never verified Bud Dickason. the likeness of a huge Pi Kappa Alpha pledge pm, resplendent in bright paint. Dickason brought the pledge to the campus from Santa Cruz, an island in the Galapagos group, just a month ago. They became acquainted while Dickason was on a fishing trip there.
