Thirty Men Elected To Trojan Squires Knights Make Choice From 90 Applicants Dr. Wallbank Discusses Rule Of Primitives History Professor Tells Position Of African Chief “Among the most primitive and childlike peoples, despotic government is the exception rather than the rule,” stated Dr. Walter T. Wallbank. associate professor of history, at the faculty-student forum yesterday afternoon. Leading the panel discussion on “Democracy,” Dr. Wallbank explained that in Africa a chief was only the mouthpiece for the elders of the tribe, the elders being merely repositories of tradition. “Anthropologists attach great significance to this,” continued the his-i tory professor. “They believe that despotic government is contrary to the genius of the homosapien that enables him to participate in government.” THOUGHT EXPANDED Confessing that he was heartened by what might be termed a natural instinctiveness amog men to have representative government, Dr. Wallbank called for discussion on the "anthropological” viewpoint. Participating students expanded the thought into a question: Con- COUNCIL TO CELEBRATE President To Speak To Modesto Teachers sabeth Franklin.

R. B. VON KLEINSMID, President School of Law constitution. The 380 barrister students will cast their ballots in the main lobby of the Law building, Max Ramey, president of the school and elections commissioner, announces. Three aspirants to the presidential post climaxed pre-election activity today. Betty Jo Morrison, candidate for vice-presi'ioD*; Arline Martin, for secretary treasurer: and Lloyd Saunders, for El Rodeo editor, will be uncontested in the election. Hal Halter, presidential candidate, makes the following campaign statement: Woodrow Irwin, aspirant to the presidency, declares, “Although the office of president of the law school does not involve a great volume of work, there is room for much constructive activity in acquainting the law students with the tradition of the profession. That activity I hope I will have the opportunity to direct.” Curt Bonsall. also seeking the presidency, summarizes his plat-lorm as follows: “These are my objectives— “1. To improve assemblies, dances, “Circumstances have in the past - and all law school social functions. had a narrowing effect upon the possible scope of the functions of the president of the "fechool of Law. “If that officer can accomplish some d«g»*e of coordination be- “2. To establish informal meetings where the student body can meet* outstanding attorneys and participate in discussion upon a basis of equality. I feel that assem- blies can be too formal and the student body is not too large to make informal meetings practical. “3. To amend constitutional requirements that are unfair as applied to the School of Law.” The proposed amendment to the constitution, initiated by Frank O'Neill, would provide that “All officers of the Bar Association of the University of Southern California with the exception of president, vice-president, and El Rodeo editor are abolished.” Max Ramey, incumbent president, questioned the constitutionality of the measure and yesterday termed it “radical.” He said that the wording of the provision precludes possibility of it including the three class presidents in the office abolition sweep provided in the bill. The measure originally suggested abolition of all officers and elections. Ramey said that late printing of ballots may delay the beginning of the election briefly. includes Helen Herweg and Esther Morrison. Publicity for the week will be under the direction of Reavis Winckler and his committee includes Jack Gillean and Margaret Finlay. It s a Toss-up/ Says Goodman About Contest “Balloting to date in the Wampus Miss USC contest is practically even with no one of the 16 competing coeds in the lead,” announced Lee Goodman, editor, last night. Presentation of the cup by Michael MacBan, to the winning contestants will take place on Wednesday, May 1, in Touchstone theater during the 10 o’clock recess. Polls for the contest will be closed on next Wednesday at 5 p.m. All of the sorority candidates were chosen by their respective houses as being representative of the most typical SC girl. Pictures of all the contestants will appear in the downtown newspapers on alternate evenings till the closing of the contest, according to Editor Goodman. PROPAGANDA RESISTED Dr. Carlton C. Rodee, professor of political science, who was sitting in on the panel, corroborated the belief that human behavior can be largely conditioned, so much so “that we are easily deluded into wanting things not compatible with our basic interests.” Dr. Wallbank noted a certain resistance to propaganda, in the sense that “there must be a predilection; if the predilection is there, what is potential can be made actual,” he observed. Bill Flood announces Squires Thirty men selected from a list of 90 applicants last night were elected members of Trojan Squires, honorary sophomore service organization. Chosen for achievement in activities and scholarship, the new Squires will begin their duties next month and will serve for one year. The selec-I tions were made by members of Trojan Knights, of which the Squire group is an auxiliary organ-I ization.
