Hearty April breezes that certain Trojans were attempting to harness often got the best of them. Would-be Trojan male heroes could be seen shinnying up trees and boosting their buddies on their shoulders to retrieve the bright-hued ob- ; jects. One sad adventure developed when, with a huff and a puff, a determined gust of wind suddenly carried away a poor damsel’s kite. An equally determined male student chased madly after the ill-behaving object. Up an oak he scampered, only to return to the base of Amazons give fashion show in auditorium Showing that “fashion is not rationed, Amazons will ay flanking advance that overran the port of Yalta and ompressed the “Sevastopol pocket” to 300-square miles, Mos- w revealed last night. -- Yalta, the enemy’s last “Dunkirk j rt” aside from Sevastopol itself, | ras captured by troops of Gen. ndrei L Yeremenko’s independent aritime army, along with 40 other wns and settlements during a rive that carried the Russians out \ the coastal mountains into the ead of the Baidar valley which Ils down to the southeastern ap-roaches of the historic battle-mnd city. up again, and once more a Trojan brought victory to Troy.

Opening with a marital disagreement between Halstead and Nell Carter, played by Bill Chapman and Kay Vaughn, the play rapidly turned into a free-for-all with the whole | family choosing sides to defend or offend the long departed general. A large, gray alley cat proved to be the star of the show, “Spring Again.’’ Friday night. Making his entrance in a tense moment of the drama, the feline showed great stage presence in his slow stroll from the wings to center stage. With all eyes turned upon him the cat was observed by many, mostly trainees, to make a slight bow. His exit was accompanied by a helping hand from Ben Piazza and a burst of applause from the audience. polliad . winners will be announced this dnesday, according to Mrs. Tacie nna Rew. chairman of the eval- , ^ing committee.

The entire mess was straightened out, however, in time for the final curtain to descend on a once more united family. Plaudits go to the complete east for their successful presentation.

Dale Maple of San Diego, first American soldier in history to be charged with treason against the United States, will be arraigned tomorrow at Fort Leavenworth, Kan., before a military court. Maj. Gen. Clarence Danielson of the seventh service command announced today.

If convicted, the 24-year-old Harvard graduate faces a possible sentence of death before a firing squad. Maple is charged r/ith desertion as well as an army charge which is the equivalent of treason. He is said to have deserted from Camp Hale, high in the Colorado Rockies, and to have helped two German prisoners of war in their escape.

Take a bushel of talent and two bushels of modesty and the result will be the versatile personality of Davis, who is tea and a cup of rum and then throwing the tea away Comedy entered the third act when Jack Root appeared as William Auchinschloss, a dynamic Hollywood producer, with a tale of woe about writers and an amazing accent. Mary Ellen Needles was excellent in her role of Edith Welbright, society woman, whose face had launched a thousand Chinese orphans.

Not only has radio j been his career for the last five years, but for several years he work-I ed in the movie industry doing | “kid” parts. His present characterizations j are Pinky in the “One Man’s Family” show Sunday afternoons, a part he has done for four years; Alvin Fuddle in the “Blondie” program Monday evenings, and Randolph in the radio presentation “A Date with Judy” Tuesday evenings. Davis appeared on the Jack Ben-| ny program as Bellylaugh Barton, a part of about ten weeks’ duration.

World War II vets gather tomorrow temporary chairman of the veterans’ organization. A native of California and a resident of Beverly Hills, Davis has been out of the state only once; that was when he worked on a movie lot in Arizona. He thinks SC is “swell.” He is studying French and Spanish to complete his international relations major requirements. Davis was “discovered” by a radio talent scout five years ago when he appeared in a stage production in Los Angeles. He admits his career in radio has provided many exciting moments and opportunities to meet people of fame. Davis also admits “Sure, I was scared the first time I went on the radio. Who wouldn’t be?” Such emergencies as missing pages from the script contribute to the thrills of “mike” presentations, he added. Sports that appeal to Davis are swimming, football, and fishing, “in normal time.” His pets are two English bulldogs. Announcement of the arrival at SC last week of the reference library of foreign serials from the Boston Society of Natural History was made by President Rufus B. von KleinSmid. The collection of more than 30.000 volumes is a culmination of 113 years of research activities by leading scientists from nearly every nation of the globe. It will be housed in the Hancock Foundation building. In permUting its release to the university, the Boston organization expressed hope that it would become the nucleus of a scientific library in the same way that the Huntington library serves the public in non-scientific fields. Only because of the society’s decision to change its century-old policy from that of technical research in order to concentrate its efforts hereafter on the amateur and general student, was the acquisition by SC made possible. “The university is delighted to become the repository of this outstanding series of works, which have served libraries and scientists of this country and abroad since 1820,” said President von KleinSmid. “This collection is acknowledged in Its field to be second only to that of Harvard university. “Such an acquisition has become still more valuable because of the wanton destruction of libraries of this character throughout the combat areas of the war. To American centers possessing such treasures will come scholars from over the wide world,” he stated. The volumes will enable scientists to chronicle the many thousands of specimens collected during the ten explorations made by Capt. Allan Hancock on the Velero III from 1931 to 1941. The cruises covered coastal waters from San Francisco to Peru as well as the Caribbean and Galapagos island areas, resulting in many specimens hitherto unknown to science.
