Hied advance it or ms Anguar After driving the Germans from several towns the airborne troops, consisting mostly of Americans but including Britons,, Poles and Dutch commandos, pushed on toward their first main objective which they expected to reach at nightfall. Behind a thunderous 15-hour bombing by 2000 Allied warplanes, Brereton's army set down among the Dutch dikes and windmills near the German frontier in one of the most daring strokes of the war— an assault that involved the possibility of death or capture for every man participating. Brereton. who watched the initial landing from a plane, messaged his troops before the takeoff that upon the success of their mission “rests the difference between a quick decision in the west and a long, drawn-out battle."

The program is sponsored by the Trojan Knights, and will feature the university band, Paul Martin's orchestra, and all the yells and songs of SC. Beginning promptly at 7 p.m., the university band will march down the aisles and take its place on the stage to render school songs. Bob Thompson, yell king, and his assistants, Daryl Arnold and George Wilson, will be on hand to lead the audience in football yells as practice for the coming game. Coach Jeff Cravath will follow the band with an introduction of SC’s football players. Paul Martin is scheduled to play for an hour. He and his orchestra have also been engaged for the Knight-sponsored SC-UCLA dance following Saturday’s game. As the song and yell books will not have been printed by Friday, students are "'•ked to v>ring Fri-(Hy’s ^rojan, which will contain the various jells and songs, to the rally. Knights are planning to sponsor a rally before each college football game. Students are urged by Phil Kirst, Knight president, to attend this first rally and the ones ernment, Civic Center division. 202 to follow. “It’s the best way for Wilson building, First and Spring freshmen and new trainees to get streets. the Trojan spirit.” Starting Thursday, a course in administrative aspects of delinquency control will be offered by the School of Government. The course is the third in a series of four to be given by the School Government and is designed to give students and administrators a basic idea of measures needed to control delinquency. Classes ares cheduled from 5:40 to 8 p.m. in 1006 State building. Capt. Robert W. Bowling, juvenile control division, Los Angeles police department, will be the instructor of the new course. He has designed his subject material so as to encourage class discussion to e greatest possible extent. A number of scholarships have been provided for these courses in delinquency control by Los Angeled citizens. Regular enrollments require $20 tuition per course.

The privilege of pompon waving from the rooting section will go to holders of the activity cards, along with demonstrations of Trojan vocal chords in the college yells. Attempts to outdo the enemy during intermissions in card stunts will also be inti ilged in *y those taking advantage of this generous offer. SC practically offers $14 to anyone inquiring at the cashier's window of Student Union. For only $S, tickets to football( sessions totalling $20 alone are turned over with no strings attached. Admission to play productions, social functions, and other spontaneous campus events is included with no extra fee. Salen on the cards will continue indefinitely, but students are urged to act promptly so as nr t to be caught when sales are discontinued, according to Arnold Eddy, graduate manager. It will be unnecessary for students to present student body cards when purchasing the activity cards as the cashier possesses a complete list of students who have been deemed eligible for admittance to SC nex* term. Those students not on campus this summer who are planning to return in the fall will not be sent not’?e of the c,**le, so rtu-dents are asked to contact friends off campus. Sales, however, must be made in person. Naval trainees who have registered and been accepted by the university for next term may purchase the cards along with eligible civilians. Eileen Holland chosen queen of Frosh class Selected as Miss California of the freshman class, Eileen Holland “won in a walk” last Friday when the frosh council eyed- the flrt contestants and decided she should take the traditional cake as queen of the freshmen. The meeting was held in 318 Student Union and following the frivolity of selecting the queen, there were more cross-eyed council members than have ever dark-ene* SC's doors. Oth.- contestants included Eunice Bydal, Daisy Mintier, Marjorie Hoaglund. and Lucille Wilde. Daisy Mintier and Lucille Wilde were chosen as attendants to the queen. Miss Holland is not an amateur at winning queen contests. She was queen of a San Fernando Valley fair and was recently voted pledge queen of Pi Phi sorority. She is 18, 5’ 7” in height, and has a 24” waist in case any one is interested. Her weight is 124 pounds. Her hair is blond and she has blue eyes. Los Angeles High school is her alma mater. In case the freshmen win the brawl, whic1’’ will be held Oct. 7 in the coliseum. Miss Holland will reign supreme over a rf?.nee, or some -ffair, to be held later at the discretion of both frosh and soph councils. Smith named Owl editor Poster planners meet today wi Editorializing A statement of Trojan policy With a sound of grinding heard from Mudd airfield, j han ^he University pylon, the political LmT “°rl“ ? “ gears of Troy have started to turn. Unoiled as the Americans two airdromes ® J in fighter plane range of the they are, they still herald the approach of the term’s end and the election for ASSC officers. With increased frequency, the acceleration of wartime has hit politics too, some Trojans go into this state of suspended | animation which indicates that new faces : are being sought, new platforms formed, and j new candidates are under consideration. In the past, the selection and the election I of candidates has been up to a few interested cl/ c senators students who feel that it is their duty or to their advantage to be “on the inside.” There i is no reason to believe*that things will be any different in this election. Candidates will be presented, nominated, and after they are , elected there will be little difference in the ! character of one administration over another. The Trojan already has been approached by the so-called opposite sides of the political scene, for, in the past, the Trojan has figured prominently in the political dickerings of the politically elite. There is no reason to believe that the Trojan will not play its important part in this election. But, that part will be played differently. Frequently the Trojan has been accused of supporting one candidate over another, ol playing one man’s qualifications more than another’s, of provoking issues which are of no consequence merely for the sake of stirring something up. With that accusation in mind, the Trojan feels that now, before such Philippine island of Mindanao, second was won by Gen. Mac-hur’s troops on Morotai island, than 300 miles south of Min-ao. in their Thursday invasion.

The Trojan, as such, will not support any candidate. It will not be the publicity agent for one political group over another. It will not print unsigned material calculated to increase the political opportunities of one man or to decrease those of another man. The Trojan as such will not flounder in political mud-slinging nor will it be the agent to send out political trial balloons. The Trojan will campaign for an honest election, based on honest practices. Despite the political affiliations of any of the members of the Trojan staff, it will seek to place itself outside the spotlight of political maneuvering. The Trojan will print material pertaining to the elections if it is submitted to the editorial board with the signature of the writer. It will print the views of any student on the election should they be presented in person, and it will seek to determine the cause and to have investigated any occurrence which appears out of order or unfair to any candidate. The Trojan will seek to aid the ASSC in carrying out a fair and honest election, because the Trojan does not believe that the issues at stake are pertinent enough to warrant the tremendous importance which has been attached to them, and because the Trojan is trying to be a representative organ of the student body as a whole and not of a small clique or group. The Trojan does this because it is trying to be a newspaper, not a political throwsheet, because it hopes to hold the admiration and confidence of the majority of the students and not of the few. —Mary Frances Touton, Frank McMahon.

Red army forces launch Warsaw, Vistula attack LONDON, Sept. 17—(U.P.)—The German high command announced tonight that the Red army had launched a direct frontal assault on Warsaw across the quarter-mile Vistula river from Praga.

The Russians now are driving on Warsaw from the northwest, east and southeast in a final campaign to liberate the blazing Polish capital, Berlin reports indicated. The Germans did not estimate the number of Russians and Polish troops fighting side by side in the Warsaw attack, but they probably equal if not exceed the huge forces now reportedly engaged in the third day of a three-army offensive in the Baltic states whose objective is Riga, capital of Latvia. Upwards refer to the Warsaw sector—a customary Soviet practice when big operations are underway. Berlin said that while huge forces of Russian troops were attempting to force the Vistuala between Warsaw and Praga, other forces launched an even larger thrust northeast of Warsaw between the Vistula and the Bug rivers in a northwesterly direction toward the confluence of the two rivers, 17 miles northwest of Praga.
