The communique reported the American land forces holding against renewed Jap assaults on Guadalcanal island, but said that in a naval engagement northeast of the island on Monday < Solomon time) the U. S. S. destroyer Porter was sunk and one of our aircraft carriers severely damaged, while two enemy aircraft carriers sustained undetermined damage. DETAILS INCOMPLETE In this engagement, the communique said, other U. S. vessels reported lesser damage. Details of this sea batt*, possibly one of the largest of the Pacific war, still are incomplete. In other operations in the last two days, U. S. planes bombed and damaged three enemy cruisers. The Japs appeared to be hurling all their might into a gigantic effort to regain positions which they lost Aug. 7 when the marines stormed ashore on Guadalcanal and nearby islands. ASSAULT PROVES FUTILE The latest land attack against the soldiers and marines occurred early on the morning of Oct. 25 and was the eighth futile Jap assault on the American positions on Guadalcanal in the last eight days. This time, however, the Japs tried to find a soft spot in the American southern flank. The previous seven attacks were directed against the western flank. In the air, Japanese and American fliers waged a . furious duel which has cost the enemy 22 more i ary naval base 80 miles below Nov-damaged several ^oss^ f0r the first time as an area of operations, a Soviet communique said that in fighting north-r attack that Rommel would east there an attacking Red army unit wiped out a company of German officers and men.

Knudson, who has appeared on local and transcontinental radio broadcasts, worked on drum rhythms for films Including “Stanley and Livingston,” “Green Hell,” “They Met in Argentina,” and “White Cargo.” He has composed and directed the recording of the musical background for “Hoola Boola,” the George Pal technicolor “puppetoon” soon to be released by Paramount. A graduate of the University of California at Berkeley and a member of the Phi Beta Kappa, he has made a life study of native drum rhythms. -VULTl'RE- Tuapse lies at the head of a railroad from the great oil port of Ba-tum, 250 miles to the southeast near the Turkish border, and is on a branch of the TransCaucasus railway from Baku on the Caspian. Tuapse's usefulness was greatly reduced when the Germans captured the Maikop oil fields and the pipeline junction of Amavir to the east but ls still virtually the only good Red fleet harbor north of Ba-tum. — VULTURE |erfraternity scholarship committee chair-Jwill meet today at 4 p.m. in ftudent Union.

A communique describing the current action left no doubt that the iong-anticipated battle for Guadalcanal now has been joined. Loss of the two-year-old, 14-700-ton Wasp, survivor of Axis bombing attacks earlier this year when she delivered badly needed planes to beleaguered Malta in the Mediterranean, brought to three the number of U. S. aircraft carriers which have gone down in the Pacific. The others were the Lexing- j ton. lost last May in the Coral sea i battle, and the Yorktown. sunk in the battle of Midway in June. Beta Kappa Unites With Theta Chi Theta Chi fraternity merged with Beta Kappa fraternity of SC in a series of three day events conducted by national officers last Friday. A smoker at the Elks’ club at 8 p.m. for the alumni and actives opened the weekend, with chapter members from SC and UCLA participating. Jack Slattery acted as master of ceremonies. Frederick W. Ladue, national president of Theta Chi from New York, conducted installation ceremonies for SC’s actives and pledges at the SC chapter house on Saturday morning. The group will be known as Beta Tau chapter. An informal banquet took place at the Elks’ club Saturday evening and was attended by city officials, President Rufus B. von KleinSmid, student leaders, and faculty members. Guest speaker was Edward M. Loftus, president of the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce. On Sunday installations ceremonies were held at the SC chapter for 150 alumni of Beta Kappa. Sig Berlie, varsity hockey player, is president of the SC chapter, succeeding Wallace Bertland, who is leaving for war service in Canada. -VULTURE--— I Longshoremen Positions Open SC Men Urged to Help War Effort Stressing cooperation with the war effort, Mrs. Iva Custer, assistant director of employment, urges men students to sign up for part-time work as longshoremen unloading cargo ships in San Pedro. They may fill out applications this week in the employment office and must bring with them individual photographs 1% inches by 1% inches. Pay will be at the rate of $1.10 an hour for single work periods of about 12 hours, the maximum time allowed by the army for unloading the vessels which must leave the harbor shortly after with cargoes of arms and machinery for foreign ports. Men students who sign up for this work will be on call and notified whenever they are needed for immediate duty, said Mrs. Custer. She revealed that the government needs 500 students as part-time longshoremen on the San Pedro docks, and that the university is cooperating to the fullest extent to aid in this phase of the war effort. Transportation and gas problems need not cause any student to keep from signing up, she emphasized. Among other universities whose students are actively engaged in aiding the war effort are Washington State college, the University of Washington, and the University of California at Berkeley, all of whose students turned out in large numbers to aid in northern harvests. - VULTURE - Aid to Students to Be Discussed by Legislators Selection of a war board chairman and the discussion of a campaign to raise money for the world student service fund will be the highlights of this evening’s student senate meeting, Bob McKay, ASSC president, announced yesterday. “Plans for the university’s war board have already been approved by the senate, and all we lack now is a chairman,” McKay who has been acting as ex-officio chairman of the board, declared. It will be the duty of the chairman to supervise the activities of the war board, appoint special committees, and serve as an ex-officio member of the student senate. Most of his appointments, however, are subject to the approval of the ASSC president. HAS ADVISORY COMMITTEE BUD TOWNSEND puts drive in Community Chest Helsel Explains Natural Forces Forms to Be Stressed at Philosophy Forum Stressing the fact that man must scrutinize the unshakable forces of .The war board will also contain nafure as a pattern for the con-an advisory committee whose dut\ tinuation of democracy.

Tonight’s special student senate meeting will begin at 7 o’clock sharp in the Senate chamber and all members are urgently requested to be present at that time, 3ob McKay declared yesterday. “We want all senate members to appear on time so we can get through early enough to do some studying,” McKay pointed out. Actors Rehearse Without Props Willkie Reiterates 2nd Front Demand NEW YORK. Oct. 26—(U.P.)—Wendell L. Willkie, in a report to the American people on his recent world tour, tonight reiterated his demands for second fronts in Europe and Burma to relieve enemy pressure on Russia and China and urged American leadership of a post-war world in which all nations will be freed of “econ- i :- omic injustices" and “political malpractices.” In a radio address broadcast throughout the nation and the world the former Republican presidential candidate said he believes that “in a military sense we can win this war” despite the fact that, so far, “in many respects we are not doing a good job.” Throughout his address Willkie indicated the deepest sympathy for Russia, and Ch na. describing the peoples of these countries as “our superb fighting allies.” He condemned censorship, urged greater use of “the whip-lash of public opinion” to force the admin- (Continued on Page Four) Rehearsing without props or scripts, members of Drama workshop intensified practice this week of their play “George Washington Slept Here” which will open in Bovard auditorium, Friday, Nov. 13. Joan Miles was director of the Kaufman and Hart comedy which was a stage success on Broadway. Outstanding among student performers in the cast is Clair Laub who has played parts in “The American Way,” “You Can’t Take it with You.” and “Stage Door,” which were previously produced on the campus. Norman Linn, transfer from Whittier college, played principal roles in “Pygmalion" and “The Importance of Being Earnest” while attending that school. Martin Black played in “The American Way” and has just returned from a job with a stock company in the east, said Miss Miles. Harry Woodle and Phyllis Perry were cast in “Stage Door.” Social Work Majors Announce Party The first party of the year for social workers will be held this Friday at the home of Professor Ruby Inlaw, announced Miss Helen Cass, president of the Graduate School of Social Work. A student committee composed of Ruth Hirshfield, chairman, and Mrs. Irene English, and Mr. Richard i).\ charge of arrangements and program respectively. An office and secretarial staff will be provided for the chairman. Seven divisions will make up the war board program: stamps and bonds, Red Cross, salvage, morale, postwar, defense courses, and home defense committee. FUND RAISING DISCUSSED Following last Wednesday's assembly address by Robert Mackie, general secretary of the WSSF, plans have been discussed concerning a method of raising funds to aid war-suffering students all over the world. Some student leaders have objected to an organized campaign for this purpose, however, fearing that it would interfere with the current Victory hut contest. McKay also announced that ln addition to Friday's Community Chest rally, there will be a rally the Friday before every football game during the rest of the season. -vulAjre- Architects Give Dance The sophomore class of the College of Architecture and Fine Arts is giving a dance, Friday night, Oct. 30. Open to the general student body, the dance will feature music of big name bands on record. Tickets are being sold by sophomore students in Architecture and Fine Arts or at the door. Admission is 75 cents a couple. -Lights Out- Dimout Rules for SC Related by President All university employees, professors, and 28th street residents are asked by President Rufus B. von KleinSmid to comply with orders of Lt. Gen. John L. DeWitt of the west-srn defense command regarding the new dimout regulations. Instructors of all night classes should make sure their shades and Venetian blinds are cor- --- rectly adjusted, and employees shall see that all interior and ^xterior lighting on university property is properly shielded. Sorority and fraternity houses shall also heed the new regulation to insure them against any action which might be taken by air-raid wardens. Following are excerpts from public proclamation No. 12: 1. . . . “that illumination . . .be extinguished or controlled in such which are located out of doors, and floodlighting which illuminates buildings or signs . . . and all interior lighting which emit direct rays above the horizontal out of doors, shall be extinguished.” 3. “All interior lighting of every description shall be reduced or controlled so that it does not contribute more than one foot candle or illumination upon any outdoor area. 4. “Illumination on all outdoor areas . . . shall not exceed one foot p.m. today in Bowne hall. “Some things remain unshaken,” said Dr. Helsel. ‘In the physical world there are such examples as growth, metabolism, vital forces, and chemical affinity: in human nature truth, justice, good, wisdom, and the like characterize the un-. seen world as genuinely as gravitation does the physical world.” STRESSES THOUGHT He advises the development of ideas for the preservation of democracy, saying that today we must build our Babel towers not of clay, but of ideas. Dr. Helsel will expound the two views shared by educators of man’s place in the cosmos. With Croce one may treat history as the story of liberty, he said, or in agreement with Socrates, believe that the roots of human existence bury themselves deeply within cosmic soil. REPRESENTS PATTERN “Democracy represents the eternal pattern of human relationships and brotherhood, and unless we hold this conviction, well may our hearts faint within ’us as we sense the irresistible tide of world events sweeping us on. “We must build a world,” he continued, “that succeeding generations can look to for hope and-sustenance. We must build it with an unshakable foundation." POINTS OUT REPETITION Dr. Helsel will point out how th<* patterns of a democratic society have repeated themselves throughout history. He opines that democracies to a considerable degree have always stressed self-reliance and independence in gaining a livli-hood. These theories were exemplified by the ancient Greeks, early Hebrews, and American frontier -men. OTHER SPEAKERS Other speakers this year will be Herbert L. Searles, who will speak on “The Seat of Authority in a Democracy”; Wilbur Long, “Propaganda and Democracy”; Merritt M. Thompson, “Educating for Democracy”; Carlton C. Rodee, “Contemporary Challenges to Democracy.” Dr. Ralph Tyler Flewelling. director of the School of Philosophy, opened the forum last week when he spoke on “The Place of Imponderables in a Democracy.” --VULTURE-- With sororities and fraternities giving 100 per cent on the Community Chest drive, SC’s goal of $1000. $250 more than last year’s net, is expected to be reached by Fri-day. I The campaign will terminate this week with an all-U Chest assembly in Bovard auditorium Friday morning. Bud Townsend, campaign manager. asserted that because of the many other charitable organizations making drives now, and the thought of the thousands suffering in war-torn Europe, many students will forget about the needs of those here ' in America. CONTRIBUTORS MARKED A Community Chest hut erected in front of the Administration building will receive all donations from the students, and a huge thermometer in the Student Union will record the total contributions as they rise. Lapel pins, evidence of the generosity of Trojans, will be distributed by representatives from all the university organizations. COMPETE FOR CUP Sororities will compete for the Phelps-Terkel cup. which is awarded annually to the Greek house turning in the largest contribution record. Fraternity and sorority checks should be kept and turned in at the Panhellenic meeting Wednesday. Townsend met yesterday with women interested in making activity points by working for the drive and organized a crew who will solicit Trojans for contributions. Said Townsend: “I really expect these girls to get out and dig and make a huge success of the deal.” - TULTURE - manner and to such extent as may candle at any point when measured be necessary to prevent such illim- on a horizontal plane . . . and all ination from aiding operations of outdoor light sources shall be shield- the enemy.” ed so that no direct rays from the 2. “Illuminated signs and orna- light source shall be emitted above mental lighting of every description the horizontal” President, Dean Attend Conclaves President Rufus B. von KleinSmid and Dr. Albert Sydney Raubenheimer left last night for the east to take part in annual conventions of education groups. President von KleinSmid will speak at sessions of the Nebraska State Teachers Association convention in Lincoln and Omaha on Thursday. Friday, he will speak at Norfolk and will attend the annual event of Phi Delta Kappa, national honorary education organi-. zation. Dr. Raubenheimer will participate in the national meetings of the i American Association of Colleges i and Universities at Philadelphia on ‘ Thursday. Sigma Nu Dig Attracts 800 With every unburned rug and piece of furniture cleared from the ground floor to make way for more than 800 swinging Trojans. Sigma Nu held its novelty Charcoal Dance last night to help raise funds covering the losses suffered by last weeks fire. Dancing lasted from 7 until 10:30. Outside the building pledges of the fraternity sold admission tickets at 50 cents each and served punch and cookies to the throng of Greek-letter men and their dates who lounged on couches arranged on the lawn, or who went inside at the persuasion of a voice over a public address system announcing the numbers played by Ted Olewine and his Jumpcats. Trojans entering the house found it decorated with colored streamers and with placards pointing to the Persian room, the Peacock room, and the Top o’ the Mark. Pushing their way through the crowds into the Persian room, they danced around the band. “It was a tremendous success,” said Henry Eschen, president of Sigma Nu. “We appreciate the splendid support given us by the students.” He pointed out that all the sororities and fraternities on the campus turned out for the- affair. Assisting him in planning the dance was Russ Lindersmith, head yell-king. Sigma Nu members are at present residing in other fraternity houses, pending the reconstruction of their building. President Eschen revealed that insurance did not entirely cover the losses sustained by the fire. - VULTURE -- Trojan Fosters Creative Urge in Students The Daily Trojan wishes to announce its intention to start a creative page. Through this page, students with creative talent will be given an opportunity to express themselves, their ideas, and their temperament. In other words, they will have a chance to show what they can do. In time of war the urge for individual expression is greater and more intensive, and always introduces new angles, fresh points of view, and added stimulation. Perhaps this new feature will fill a long-felt demand. Mail drops will be provided in the Union and Bridge hall. The page will be edited by Ake Sandler, senior student in journalism. who last summer was in .charge of the Summer Trojan’s creative page. ( onu ihiitions should be addressed "The creative page” of the Daily Trojan. A
