Bill Flood, chairman of the rally committee, promised yesterday as he announced that “anything will go" in the novel pregame pow-wow. which will have informality as its keynote. WEAVER SELECTED “Doodles” Weaver, a rapidl.v-ris-ing young comedian of the “screwball” type, will headline the assembly program. Flood announced, adding that Weaver’s selection was prompted by the entertainer's popularity with SC students. Kenneth Sieling. head yell king, and his two assistants. Paul Miller and Ed Davis, will open the festivities with what is programmed as a "ballot,” but may turn into anything from a Hopi war dance to a Harlem jitterbug contest, according to "reasonably reliable sources.” THE TROJAN ROLL’ Besides contributing entertainment of a terpsichorean nature, the noise-makers will introduce a new yell, “The Trojan Roll,” which is to Rooters' Requisites Yell King Kenneth Sieling yesterday announced the following requirements for members of the Trojan rooting section: 1—Women rooters must woar white blouses and carry pompoms. 2—Men rooters must wear white shirts and rooter's caps. 3—Activity books are necessary for admission. be the signal for the Trojan band, which will also be on hand, to break into “Watch the Trojans Roll.” | • The traditional interview with the coach of the visiting club. Tex Oliver, Webfoot mentor, is another I possible addition to the events of the assembly. If Oliver arrives, Flood will introduce him and possibly some of his outstanding players. SONGS PLANNED Six members of the Trojan chorus will contribute to the musical side of the program by leading the as-j sembly in “March On,” “Fight On,’’ and “Alma Mater,” accompanied by the band. Dress rehearsal for tomorrow's yells will round out the hour. Kenny Sieling said. “We’re going to practice yelling the ‘Big T.’ then singing Fight On.' clapping a chorus, and ending up by really giving out with the last chorus.” the yell king announced. Engineers To Hold Annual Dance The College of Engineering will sponsor its fourth annual all-Uni-versity dance tomorrow night at the Deauville Beach club.

Times SOUTHERN DAI L CALIFORNIA ROJAN VOLUME XXXI LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER £9, 1939 NUMBER 11 SC Begins Defense Of Conference Title Webfeet Seek First Victory over Trojans Since 1915; Game To Start at 2:30 p.m. BY JACK GILLEAN “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again” must be the slogan of the Oregon football players. After trying since 1915 to defeat Southern California, the Webfeet invade the coliseum again tomorrow to battle the Trojans at 2:30 p.m. in the opening Pacific Coast conference clash for both team*. Russia, Estonia Sign Mutual Aid Pact Report of German Air Victory Branded Lie by Britain Russia and Estonia signed a pact of mutual assistance and a trade agreement in Moscow last night and thereby probably cleared the way for further moves in the widespread program of Russo-German collaboration for domination of eastern Europe which reportedly is envisaged by Adolf Hitler and Josef Stalin. Just where Italy, Germany’s military ally, will fit into this picture is not clear but it is increasingly apparent that the Russian and German dictators are working closely together and that soon they must decide what share Benito Mussolini is to have in their grandiose plans. Informed foreign diplomats in Berlin believed that a “final peace proposal” from Hitler would be forthcoming soon. VICTORY REPORTED The German high command's announcement Thursday of a second Nazi air victory over the British fleet—categorically denied by the British admiralty—was believed to indicate that Hitler is organizing a major sea and air attack on the Allies. Germany, the Berlin diplomats said, is ready to assail Britain and France with incessant air and submarine attacks unless the Allies agree to call off the war. POPE MAKES APPEAL Pope Pius XII again raised his voice in an appeal to the warring nations to seek a solution of their differences at the conference table instead of in bloodshed. He asked that neutral nations take part in the general conference. The pontiff did not send his peace appeal to Soviet Russia, arch-foe of the Vatican. because the Holy See and Moscow have not had diplomatic contact since the rise of Bolshevism 20 years ago. German Foreign Minister Joachim von Ribbentrop continued his mysterious conversations in Moscow and Nazis in Berlin said that the formation of a huge economic bloc encompassing all of Eastern Europe and dominated by Germany and Russia was the goal of the talks. Activity Book Sale To Continue Tomorrow With approximately 2600 books already sold, student activity books will remain on sale today and until 12:30 p.m. tomorrow. Sales this year, according to ticket office officials, are expected to exceed last year’* total of 3,000, Junior Student Named Head Of Newsreel » WHiiam Figge Leads ’39 ‘Trojan Review’; Innovations Planned William Figge, junior in the deportment of cinematography, yesterday was appointed producer of the “Trojan Review,” motion picture at SC activities. Figge, who is the first Junior to hold the post of newsreel producer, plans several innovations which, he asserts, will revolutionize the picture’s style of presentation. “Instead ot a large number of disconnected, incomplete, and sometimes poorly explained ?pis- ”stSentswhowishtoapplyfor positions with the newsreel staff will meet with William Figge in the cinematography office, 120 Old College, at 2:30 p..m today. Trojan Officials Predict Victory Over Oregon Team Must 'Be Right Mentally’ To Win Game Tomorrow BY HERB KLEIN HEAD MEN — Coach Howard Jones, left, is probably advising Trojan Captain Joe Shell to call the flip of the coin heads before tomorrow's opening kick-off. Shell alternates w:th Bob Hoffman at the left halfback position. Three Thousand To Present New Card Stunts Tomorrow Three thousand enthusiastic Trojans are expected to fill SC’s rooting section tomorrow afternoon and participate in j new yells, songs, and 12 colorful card stunts. Trojan women will participate in the card section for the first time and are expected by section officials to add greatly to the stunts prepared by Kenneth ~ Sieling, Paul Miller, and Ed Davis, rooting section.

SCRIPT RECORDING PLANNED “The script will be prepared completely by a member of the staff and will be recorded rather than read at the showing. A newsreel staff member rather than a member of the radio department will record the commentary. A new camera designed to photograph interior scenes • and night shots has been added to the newsreel staff’s equipment' this year. Its high sensitivity to light will enable cameramen to record poorly-lighted scenes and evening affairs such as hockey gamps. Figge said. COLOR SCENES ANTICIPATED A color feature will be contained in each issue. Football games will be covered completely, Figge said. A play-by-play description will accompany the pictures. This year's newsreel head has worked on the production as script writer, technician, director, and assistant producer. He was recommended to the pest by Don Bar-telli, former producer of the Review. Luther Club Officers Will Be Introduced Members of the Luther club will convene for the first meeting of the group Monday at 12 M. in 322 Student Union. Officers for this year will be introduced. Students may sign up for the luncheon meeting in the office of the Student Council on Religion, 1 floor, Student Union. Ooach Julie Bescos will send his Trobabes against Glendale junior college at 12 m. as a preliminary to the varsity game. Oo-holders at the J038 conference crown with California, the Cardinal and Gold team enter* tomorrow’s contest as favorite. While SC was finishing in a tie for first last year, the Ducks were far down in the standings with three wins as against four losses.

Boasting a line that averages 200 pounds, the 1939 eleven is considered to be one of the best teams to ever represent Oregon. Oliver also has an experienced scrimmage. “I haven’t got my timing perfected on a couple of the plays,” Hoffman explained.

Dr. Frank C. Baxter will begin his weekly poetry readings series Monday at 12:10 p.m. in Bovard auditorium. Walt Whitman will be the first outstanding American poet whom he will discuss.
