The Squires is an hon-iry service organization for soph-lore and junior students. V-12 examinations to be given Apr. 2 Examinations for class V-12, United States naval reserve, will be given Friday, April 2 at 9 a.m. in 302* Law building, according to Dr. R. R. G. Watt, director of the Junior College and supervisor of the examinations for SC. Registration forms for the examination may be secured in 114 Old College. Dr. Watt emphasized that “no member of any other reserve group is eligible for V-12 and no one will be admitted to the examination room without a properly filled out form signed by an official or faculty member of the university.” “V-12 is a plan of office^- procurement for the navy which will allow students to remain in school for further training. After being called to active duty as apprentice seamen in the naval reserve, the men called will be assigned to colleges—not necessarily the ones that they are attending at the time—for specialized training under military discipline, in uniform, and it full navy pay,” Dr. Watt stated. As announced by a navy department bulletin, length of training will be four semesters for general duties and 6 to 12 semesters for more technical studies. The first group to enlist will be called to active duty about July 1, the second group about Nov. 1. Successful completion of the training program will lead to a commission as ensign in the United States naval reserve, and men enlisting under the plan may express a preliminary choice of studies. Dr. Watt stated that “no physical examination is necessary to take the mental examination which will be in the nature of a general aptitude test.” Prospective enlistees in V-12 must possess the following qualifications: 1. They must on July 1, 1943 be between their 17th and 20th birthdays. 2. They must be male citizens of the United States. 3. They must be physically, morally, and scholastically qualified with visual acuity at 18/20 uncor-rected in each eye. 4. They must be in no other army, navy, or marine reserve program. Dr. Watt stated that “passing the mental examination gives only the opportunity to enlist in V-12; enlistment is subject to a later physical examination and the final decision of the naval selection board which passes on each candidate.” —on the political front- TN E cat let out of political bag by the Keyholer Jack Williams—that is the name I promised you yesterday - • He is the man upon which The TNE Machine pins its hopes. As I pointed out in my first article, Machine bigwigs recently held a clandestine meeting to select one of three prospects, Bud Townsend, Mickey Heeger, or Jack Williams, as your 1943-44 Trojan student body prexy. How do Townsend and Heeger feel now that they have been scuttled by The Boys? Or have they been appeased with promises of certain high appointive offices in the new administration? Were they even aware that they were being considered by TNE? Will they now doublecross The Machine and run against Williams? This has happened more than once before, you know. There is a grow ing rumor already that Townsend is to be backed by the Wampus clique for prexy! The TNE endorsement does not necessarily cast reflection upon Williams’ ability or integrity. I am only attacking the sub-rosa practices of the illicit Machine. Unfortunately, these cheap politicos have such a strangle-hold on the campus political life that they can tlirottle a candidate’s hopes of victory if he refuses to play ball. Under the corrupt conditions, it is practically suicide for an openly anti-Machine man to rnn. But frequently some disgruntled soul enters the lists. This year an anti-machine candidate may emanate from the Kappa Alpha house. The KA’s have gotten the dirty end of many political deals this year and are girding their loins for combat. At the same time, The Machine has already vowed to put the “Ephns-McGeephus” on any KA candidate. According to latest reports, however, Bill Caldwell, a KA, has halfway decided to run. Caldwell is business manager of the Daily Trojan and was in the center of last semester’s senate controversy over the chairmanship appointment to the war board. Chisel-chinned, broad-faced Caldwell is popular with his house-brothers, being president of the Kappa Alpha chapter. Howie Callanan, Bill’s very own fraternity brother, is favored in many quarters as still another anti-Machine candidate. Handsome Howie now occupies a prominent position which last year furnished a presidential aspirant (Jerry Conrad). As President of the Religious Council, Callanan has a senate seat now and might desire to sit at the head of the senate table. But can he overcome both the KA jinx and The Machine’s evil eye? Of course the important feminine vote is always curried by The Machine. So don’t be surprised if it completes its ASSC slate by supporting Lynn Norby for vice-president and Dorothy Smith for secretary. (Miss Smith, coincidentally, was serenaded a few nights ago by Candidate Jack Williams’ PiKA house brothers, and Lynn has been Jack’s obedient servant as a sub-chairman on the war board.) Nor should we overlook tne prospects of Leta Gallentine, DG, as a contender for the vice-prexy spot. The Machine might be planning to play both ends against the middle and secretly support both Norby and Gallentine. The Daily Trojan might be counted upon to nominate a dark-horse candidate. This would make the presidential race three-cornered. By tomorrow, however, the chagrined Machine, feeling that its most tender spots have been exposed, might decide to back-track and hold another caucus to formulate new strategy in the way of a revised slate of candidates. If they take this pusilanimous course of action, the Keyholer will again know all and tell all. Case cites need of faith in world today In Warsaw 88 per cent of the buildings have been bombed. . . . Cologne and Rotterdam are unrecognizable. .... In Athens last year 9 out of 10 babies died before reaching the age of one year. Chinese children look to America for sustenance. . . . With these examples, Dr. Harold C. Case, Religious Emphasis week speaker, maintained yesterday that a religion for these days is necessary. He spoke at the third religious week assembly in Bovard. Today he will discuss “Finding a Valid Philosophy of Life.” Final address in the series will be given tomorrow when Dr. Case will disclose the “Basis of Hope.” “The world today needs faith," said Dr. Case. “People who receive cryptic messages informing them of disaster require an inner stability, which can be supplied by faith.” % “Every individual needs hij own personal religion,” stated Dr. Case. One cannot have religion on borrowed time. Your religion ought to be based on your convictions and not ‘on convention. We all admire mastery, and in religion we follow people we respect. It is very possible for even a cynical person to be religious.” Dr. Case said that, contrary to popular belief, “truth has no fight with religion. Science and religion should not conflict with each other because they began at the same time and have a common origin. “Neither science, truth, patriotism, nor political loyalty are enough to guide us through these times. They necessitate religion • “There are three possible attitudes toward happenings. A person can be destructive, indifferent, or creative.” Dr. Case advised people to look to the future in terms of “God’s possibilities which outweigh actualities.” He said “belief in a better future will sustain the universe.” :ire watchers • . . will meet in Old College 222 tonight at 7:30 p.m. Dean Francis M. Bacon urges all watchers to be present. House-of-month contest closing Sororities and fraternities are in close competition as the deadline for the house-of-the-month contest approaches, 0 Jack Williams, president of the war board, announced yesterday. Each house chairman is expected to turn in his aggregation of points thU week, according to Williams. Leta Galentine, president of the war council, will explain the newly revised point system at today’s war board meeting in 418 Student Union at 4 p.m. Daily Trojan poll Student opinion on the question of granting the privilege of voting to men and women 18, 19, and 20 years of age will be determined today and tomorrow as the Daily Trojan conducts its campus poll. By means of the ballot printed below this article, students will indicate their opinion of a measure now pending in the California assembly which would amend the state constitution to lower the minimum voting age to 18 years. Ballot boxes are located in the Student Union and in the Victory hut, in front of Administration. hould 18-year-olds vote?-pro, con [Arguments for and against the en age voting amendment include ie following: Students are better informed than [any adults on current politics be-luse of recently acquired knowl-Ige on civic affairs. If the young men of the nation re old enough to take on the re- sponsibility of fightw a global war, they are also old enough to take on the responsibility of the ballot box. Members of this particular age group often have more progressive ideas on political and social problems. Other nations have lower voting ages. Twenty-one is an arbitrary age set only by law. CON The measure is not an expedient one to bring to a vote at' the present time. There is no need for such a measure anyway. Teen^ agers will be able to vote in two or three years if they just can wait. Youth at this age lackj sufficient responsibility, property, etc., and would tend to vote for measures that would hamstring the more conservative electorate. Too often it would merely mean another vote for a particular family because of parental influence. Eighteen-year-olds are not mature enough to pass upon the complicated issues in modem politics. Ballot **. . . every native citizen of the United States, every person who shall have acquired the rights of citizenship under and by virtue of the treaty of Queretaro, and every naturalized person thereof, who shall have become such 90 days prior to any election, of the age of 18 years ... shall be entitled to vote at all elections . . . ?” DO YOU . FAVOR THC ABOVE PROPOSITION WHICH WOULD EXTEND THE FRANCHISE TO 18, 19, AND 20-YEAR-OLDS? PLACE “X” IN APPROPRIATE BOX. YES □ NO
