Wednesday, April 10—<L'.P>— (by telephone to New York)—Battles between Allied and German warships and planes spread along Norway's coasts early today. Norwegian coastal guns roared defiance as Germany struggled to extend her “protective" occupation of Norwegian and Danish territory, it was reported here. The German high command announced by radio that a fleet of Nazi planes had “badly damaged” four British and French warships— two battleships and two heavy cruisers—in a battle off the Norwegian port of Bergen. Scandinavian wireless reports said the 26.000-ton German battleship Gneisenau was sunk in the Skagerrak with 1500 of her crew and that another Nazi warship went down in Oslo Fjord, presumably under the guns of Norwegian batteries. _ FLAMING AIR BATTLES FOUGHT AT SEA Air battles were fought at sea and over Oslo, with British. German, and Norwegian planes crashing in flames. Germany’s lightning invasion of Denmark and Sweden in retaliation for the Allies’ mining of Norwegian territorial waters along the lifeline of the Reich's iron ore shipments brought these developments: 1—The Norwegian government of Premier Johan Nygaardsvold resigned, after fleeing from Oslo, and Vidkun Quisling of the anti-Communist national union party proclaimed himself premier by radio with the statement that Germany’s occupation was “salvation from the Allies’ frightful act of force.” •TROJAN HORSE’ ANGLE USED BY NAZIS 2—German .forces, including "Trojan horse" units of marines in disguise, reported the occupation of the vital Norwegian Atlantic ports of Narvik. Trondheim. Bergen. Stavanger. Kristian-sand after bombing several of the objectives which offered resistance. 3—The German high command announced occupation of all Norwegian points of “military importance” at nightfall, including airdromes and naval centers. 4—The German navy mined the entrances to the Atlantic ports, presumably to prevent any attempted landing by Allied forces from the sea, and offered pilot service to Norwegian shipping. 5—The Norwegian army was reported to be throwing up a new defense line between Oslo and Hamar. to which the government and the royal family fled before German cavalry and machine-gunners marched into Oslo. Hamas is 60 miles north of Oslo. 6—German armed forces, including planes, pushed through unresisting Denmark to Aal-berg on the Skagerrak to control both sides of the 50-miles-wide straits between the North sea and the Baltic. 7—Premier Th. Stauning of Denmark, appealing to the Germans by’ radio to respect Danish lives, said members of the opposition would be brought into the government—a possible reference to the Nazis. SHIP REPORTED SUNK BY SUB 8—The Swedish-Amerika line ship Amasis was reported to have been sunk at 5 p.m. by a British submarine while enroute to Oslo through the Skagerrak from Germany’s Baltic port of Stettin. 9—Sweden, fearing that the war may be brought to her territories next, received a note from Germany demanding “strict neutrality” and replied with a statement that she is determined to fight, if necessary, to maintain her integrity against any power. 10—British and German warplanes fought in the sky over Oslo at 5:30 p.m.. an hour and a half after formal surrender of the capital to a German general. SIX NORWEGIAN SOLDIERS KILLED 11—Six Norwegian soldiers were reported here to have been killed when Germany captured the Charlottenberg airdrome. Norwegian planes battled invading German planes over Fornebo airdrome on the outskirts of Oslo where 20 homes were damaged by Nazi bombs and several persons injured. Four German and two Norwegian planes were said by eye-witnesses to have fallen in battle. 12—An official German statement broadcast by radio denied that Germany had threatened Sweden. The German high command’s announcement of the mop-up of the occupation of Norway said the Norwegians resisted “especially strongly” at Oslo and Kristiansand and that the coastal defenses in Oslo Fjord were stormed by infantry shock troops cooperating with the navy and air force. SENATE DECLARES TWO INELIGIBLE All-U ‘Ditch Day’ Set for April 26 by Group As Complete Election Returns Deliberated Two write-in candidates in the last Friday’s election were declared ineligible by the ASSC senate last night as it approved a report submitted by Elections Commissioner Al Gifford.

The contributions may be left in the YWCA Aviation ! office, third floor Student Union. “We need all kinds of clothes, from hats to shoes.” said Miss Keeler in inaugurating the drive. “We want to sponsor this project for the benefit of those students who are not already well-outfitted with a wardrobe of necessities.” The week-long drive will end next Tuesday. Garments which are not distributed among the students will be sent to charity organizations, Miss Keeler said. Each sorority on campus has a representative who is in charge of gathering the contributions from her house members. There is also a representative appointed to take charge of the contributions of Elisabeth von KleinSmid residence hall. Wampus Seeks Typical Coed Frank Jonas, professor of political science, tonight at 7 o’clock in the auditorium of Harris hall. A panel discussion under the direction of Bill Air.ley will follow Dr. Jonas’ talk. The panel will include Phil Gaspar, Merle Morris, Charles Johnston, and Wes Rollo. Dr. Jonas believes that the student’s* attitude should be changed toward education as a whole and toward individual subjects. ‘SOME CLASSES CHORES’ ‘ Some classes are chores for the average student,” he contends, “but he should realize that the only way to advance to more interesting subject'matter is to do the chores first and get them over with.” Dr. Jonas holds that the development of personality should be the aim of every university student.

Professor Knopf has taken his theme from religious articles appearing in current issues of investors magazines. In an attempt to choose the most typical Trojan coed, the April issue of the Wampus will feature two pages of eligible women on campus who most nearly fill the requirements of a traditional "Helen of Troy.” Specially prepared ballots will be contained in the campus humor magazine, which will be distributed Pus on April 17, on which students will be asked to indicate their preference. Each sorority has submitted candidates for the contest' as well as non-org women. The photos of these prospective “typical” coeds will appear along with the ballot and the winner will be awarded a special loving cup and the title of “Miss USC.” ing over the candidates in an attempt to pick a favorite. Appropriate to this current election atmosphere the Trojan YMCA will open its second all-university student-faculty forum with a preview of the impending presidential campaign. Dr. Carlton C. Rodee. professor of political science, will review the field and appraise the relative merits of the individual candidates at the meeting tomorrow at 3 p.m. in the social lounge, Student Union. The discussion is open to all students of the university and is promoted by the YMCA to further student-faculty relations on the cam- Dr. Rodee will discuss the background and qualifications of both Republican and Democratic candidates. Thomas Dewey of New York, velop the undergraduate’s personality as well as prove to be of practical value after leaving the campus, he believes. VARIETY STRESSED A student specializing in one field of endeavor should be well acquainted with other activities in different fields in order to be able to interest other people in his own subject. Dr. Jonas contends. “I do not believe study tables are the best method of study for the university student,” Dr. Jonas states. ; “The actual learning of text material and outlining can be done much better individually, but discussion groups for a final understanding of the subject is an excellent plan.” STUDY IS SELF-DISCIPLINE According to Dr. Jonas, study is a matter of self-discipline. Included ficials had approved the holiday. It wa? suggested that a polo game of the SC polo team be made the fdcai point of student activity, and that the game be followed by a beach party. 1.3 DEBATED The ditch day will follow the interfraternity formal, to be held the preceding evening. A 1.2 maintenance clause was voted pnd will be incorporated in the ASSC constitution. Following a meeting of the faculty committee on scholarship with a senate committee. it was recommended that “members of the senate and thos# who are required to have a 1.5 grade average to take office must maintain a 1.3 average while in office, and in the event this average is not maintained these cases will come before the faculty committee for special consideration.” REPORT READ The motion voicing the amendment was passed without debate. A report of the senate committee on organization was read by Neil Deasy, committee chairman.
