Freshmen discuss problems, brawl Meeting for the first time Friday, the freshman council, under president Ed Barthold, discussed a few of the problems of the freshman class and planned an attack upon the sophomore class in the form of a brawl which will be planned at a later date. Business of the meeting was confined to introduction of members and a short discussion on the possibilities of promoting the freshman class as a unit. An election for vice-president and secretary was held, but a majority of votes were not swayed by any candidate so the election was postponed to the next meeting of the council Friday at 12:30 p.m. in the senate chambers. en’s judicial court. Penalties for women living in residence halls will be similar to those meted out for violations of other campus regulations. These include forfeiture of specials and campuslng.

Junior council Bob Hope finds Troy in Bizerte The familiar face of a former Trojan football star in Bizerte was another of the many servicemen overseas that gave Bob Hope the title to his best-seller book, “I Never Left Home.’* The face was that of Bob Peoples, well known grid hero, whose name and playing: are still vivid at ^C. Peoples is now Lieutenant Peoples, USNR, serving as mess officer at the Bizerte naval base. His commanding officer told Hope that when they first landed Peoples worked steadily, on his feet for more than 36 hours. “That’s a long time to stand in a hot kitchen. Ask any bride,” quipped Hope, i " 1 Expert predicts 250,000 war deaf Discussing the probability of 250.-000 servicemen returning home deaf, the last in the series of hearing conservation talks was held Friday in 101 Harris hall with Dr. Boris [ Morkovin, supervisor of the hearing division of the psychology clinic, officiating, and with a special speaker from Huff hospital for the deaf, visiting. Special speaker from the hospital, Cpl. Moe Burgman, stated that more than 250.000 men will come back with hearing difficulties, either due to the noise of firing guns or due to the smashing of a part of the ear itself. These men are given from six to eight weeks’ rehabilitation in Huff hospital where lip reading and other educational means for teaching the deaf are employed. Burgman also stated that partial blame for men returning deaf may be laid to ists who do not look into the problem of hearing before the draftee is inducted. Hearing may degenerate more in service because of the much harder life and possibly because of atmospheric and climatic conditions found in camps. Practically all aviators are partially deafened due to high flying and other causes when they finish training. Sailors are also affected in wartime by the firing of the big guns and by the explosion of depth bombs. Tank crewmen, submarine servicemen, and civilians who have been bombed, face the same as the others in that their hearing is impaired slightly each time they see action.
