Troy Applicants for Police Unit to Meet Today Emergency Group to Assist Auxiliary in Wartime Duties Wasting little time in the application of their newly completed plans, the 28th street emergency committee will meet today at 4 p.m. with applicants for the auxiliary police unit at the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity house. Bob Fisk, chairman of the committee, announced that beats WM be given to the representatives of Greek houses who recently signed up for emergency duty. All men who turned in applications for the auxiliary police unit are expected to attend the meeting without exception, Dr. Francis M. Bacon, counselor of men, declared. Dl'TIES PLANNED According to Fisk. John Simonet, coordinator of the 14th district auxiliary police, has asked for the use of surplus student-police on special duty, probably at the corner of Jefferson boulevard and : Hoover street where traffic tends to tie up during blackout emer-! gencies. A special ala*m. known only to deputized student-police, firewatch-ers, and house wardens, will sound on the Trojan campus simultane-' ouslv with the bell on top of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon house, which is scheduled to ring on the blue alarm, or 10 minutes before the red air ’ raid alarm ' signal is given j throughout the city. These persons will be authorized to leave their classes and take up prearranged posts at their respective houses. No students, however, will be allowed to drive the distance to 28th street | but must reach their destination by 1 foot, Fisk warned. GROUP DIVIDED Division of the organization into two separate controls under house wardens and auxiliary police, will be coordinated by Fisk as head of the student committee. Fire watchers, wardens, and auxiliary police will meet next Tuesday night at the Sigma Alpha Epsilon house at 7 to receive instructions for duties under emergency conditions. MGM Producer Lectures Tonight Richard Goldstone, associate producer at MGM short-feature department, will be guest lecturer at the Cinema Workshop at 7 p.m. tonight. For a short time after leaving school, Goldstone had his own advertising agency where he was discovered by the late Irving Thalberg who recognized his ability and invited him to MGM. Three of his productions have received Academy awards, including “That Mothers Might Love.” and “Main Street on the March.” The latter will be shown during his lecture tonight. Training Enrollment Enables Students to Complete School A program to allow enlistment of college students into the army air corps and enable them to complete their school courses before going into i training, was announced this week in a special bulletin from the west coast air force training center, Santa Ana. Students in any year of university may enroll. A continuous flow of aviation cadet recruits is expected when this system swings into operation. Enlistees will be placed on reserve until such time as the secretary of war deems it necessary to call them to active duty. BOARDS BEGIN Traveling boards of officers from the west coast air force training center will begin immediately to contact centrally located colleges and universities in each district of the western one-third of the nation. Even high school seniors who wish to attend college may enter the higher institution and then enlist in the air force under the deferred status. Deferments continue only as long as the student remains in good scholastic standing. Students whose courses of study give them the special instruction necessary for meteorology and communications will be permitted to continue their schooling to enable them to qualify as officers in these special branches. STUDENTS CONTINUE Whether college students will continue their studies for these special branches will depend largely upon the result of examinations to be given to sophomore students enlisted in the air force reserve. These men will already possess qualifications for aviation cadet training, but the continuance of their education will be of further benefit to the army when eventually they are called to active duty. More than 150 colleges throughout the nation will serve as focal points for the recruiting program, which is getting underway immediately. Men’s Fashions Given Showing on Sign Boards “Something new has been added . . and that something new was the appearance on campus yesterday of sandwich-board men toting their signs up and down University avenue. In spring a young man’s fancy turns to thought of clothes, would be the appropriate phrasing if one were to judge by these gaily colored posters. The lads carried the trade-marker of one of the local haberdasheries. Not only was the occasion an advertising stunt, bid part of the initiation for Gamma Alpha Chi, national advertising fraternity, pledges. The walking window displays exhibited the latest creations ’in beaeh wear and sweaters for the collegiate style-conscious man. Civil Service Bulletin Announces Examination A recent bulletin from the Los Angeles civil service commission announced an examination for student deputy probation officers to be given soon in the commission offices. Men must be between 21 and 45 and have graduated from college by June 30 of this year. The opening position pays $75 a month and three meals a day are provided.

Defense Total by Rally Appearance Two hundred and fifty dollars were turned over to the United States government yesterday as a result of the day’s sales of war stamps from the Victory Hut. Netting $150 over any previous one day’s sales, the Hut has topped its own record. The Glenn Miller rally is given credit for a part of the increase in sales. The Victory Hut, since its opening three days ago, has taken in more than $400, according to Dorothy LaFollette, chairman for defense week. WEEK SPONSORED Victory week has been sponsored by the Associated Women Students and the Trojan Knights in an effort to make the campus more defense conscious. The dig, held Monday night, was a success both from the social and the financial point of view. Officials at the dance reported an intake Of $75 on that night. The second day when the Victory Hut opened, the result amounted to $100, the third day netted $75, and finally yesterday's sales brought $250. The net result is $500. Tommy Trojan’s Victory Hut will be open every week on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday and will be manned every day by a different campus group. SORORITIES AIDED Next week the sororities will take charge and they will be aided by honorary and professional groups. Lloyd Wright and Dr. Harry Silke, director of special foundations, have been working in conjunction with the Associated Women Students and Miss LaFollette. Miller to Play for Prom Fiesta Room Planned as Scene for All-U, Interfraternity Dance Add a couple of jiggers of Miller to an evening of dancing, and you’ll have, not a j “Moonlight Cocktail,” but the all - university interfraternity formal next Friday night, sponsored by the junior and interfraternity councils. In the romantic atmosphere of the Fiesta room of the Ambassador hotel, SC students will dance from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. to the melodies of the nation’s No. 1 sweet-swing band, Glenn Miller. BIDS AVAILABLE Bids for the combined all-U and interfraternity prom, which is being held as a joint affair for the first time, are now on sale at the cashier's window in the Bookstore for $4. This is a 15-cent increase over last year’s prom, due to government taxes, according to John Price, chairman of the combined affair. Coeds will go without corsages at this, the one and only all-U formal this year. The, junior council and interfratemity council have bartned flowers in an effort to cut down expenses.

Gortikov Earns Army Commission Stanley M. Gortikov, last year’s editor of the Daily Trojan, has been promoted to the rank of second lieutenant in the U. S. army engineering corps, it was revealed yesterday. Gortikov, who completed his officer’s training at Ft. Belvoir, Va., several weeks ago, has been temporarily stationed there. He was inducted into the army as a private in the engineering division last July, following his graduation with honors from SC’s School of Journalism in June. His basic training was completed at Ft. Leonard Wood, Mo., and in February he was sent to Ft. Belvoir following successful completion of his entrance examinations for officer's training school. When informed of the success of his former student, Prof. Roy L. French, director of the School of Journalism, professed amazement at the fact that Gortikov, with only a journalist’s background throughout high school and college, was able to earn a commission in the engineering corps. “It is unbelievable,” Professor French said. Gortikov was a member of Trojan Knights, Skull and Dagger, and Sigma Delta Chi when he was a student at SC and was the holder of a four-year scholarship in journalism.

Fawell Describes Advantages of Science Whether men students are planning to join the army, navy, marines, or coast guard, a knowledge of mathematics and physics fundamentals is of “utmost benefit,” Capt. Reed M. Fawell, commandant of the SC NROTC unit, declared yesterday. Captain Fawell added his support to the recommendation of the scholarship committee that men expecting to enlist in some division of the armed service adapt their programs to include courses in these two fields. These men are urged to consider adding mathematics and physics requirements to their programs during the mid-semester counseling period which closes May 4. “SC has made a part of its curriculum the class V-l accredited navy college program.” Captain Fawell explained. “While this program is not intended to influence any student to change the subject in which he Is majoring, it does require a certain amount of mathematics and physics.” “Whether a student intends to enter the army, navy, marine corps, or coast guard, he cannot help but benefit from taking the required mathematics in the V-l curriculum,” he asserted. Under the V-J program, Captain Fawell said, the navy lists the following requirements in the two fields; “Mathematics—solution of problems in elementary algebra, plane geometry, and plane trigonometry. “General college physics—covering problems of solids, fluids, and passes; light, heat, sound, and electricity.” Editorial direction of SC campus publications next year will be in the hands of Sam Roeca and Don Hoover, who were yesterday selected to fill the positions of editor of the Daily Trojan and Wampus, respectively, for the 1942-43 school year, by the university publications board.
