The program was originally intended for presentation during December, Wright said, but all available dates before the holidays were already reserved for otfcer campus functions. The plays to be presented have been in rehearsal for several weeks pending final setting of the date.

Sino-Japanese Troops Engage In New Clash Important Chinese City Falls Before Strong Nipponese Attack Invaders Cease Firing After Completion Of Occupation PEIPING, China, Jan. 2.-0?) —Combining hand-to-hand street fighting with an aerial bombardment, Japanese troops tonight had I pushed past the great wall into i China proper to occupy the important Chinese garrison city of Shanhaikwan. Complete occupation of the walled city, most important strategic point on the Chinese-Manchurian border, was effected after prolonged fighting which began yesterday at 9:30 p.m. Details Fragmentary Details of Japan’s latest bold stroke, thought by some to be the initial moement toward seizure of the province of Jehol, were little more than fragmentary, due to interruption of communications. It was known, however, that at least a dozen Chinese and at least three Japanese were killed early in the fighting. Several Japanese buildings in the city and the railway were bombed. Chances of a further southward thrust by the Japanese, however, were considered slim, since the young war lord, Marshal Chang Hseuh-Liang, has effected a heavy concentration of troops to the south of Shanhaikwan. Planes Bomb City Fighting broke out, according to dispatches received here, after Chinese had bombed a group of Japanese police. In an ensuing engagement, Lieutenant Kodama of the Japanese army and two Japanese soldiers were killed. Japanese troops promptly began moving in from the north. Heavy fighting occurred outside the city’s walls until today when Japanese fighting planes from Mukden arrived and began bombing the city. Shortly thereafter, according to a dispatch from Mukden, the Japanese had completely occupied the city. The city of Shanhaikwan, which means “the gate between the mountain and sea,” also is the gateway to Manchuria and for many years has been one of the most important strategic points in China proper. It is on the Gulf of Liao-Tung, where the great wall of China meets the sea. Trojan Grid Squad Ends Great Undefeated Season With 35-0 Win Over Muddled Pitt Team Bolivians Denounce Paraguay War Ruse LA PAZ, Bolivia, Jan. 2.—(IIP)— The Bolivian government today issued a document denounving Paraguayan “violations of international law” in the Gran Chaco warfare. It charged that during the Chaco campaign Paraguayan forces showed a white flag, giving the impression of surrender, though the action turned out to be a ruse in which Major Arias, five ofiicers and 64 soldiers were captured. Job Relief Drive Will Open Today WASHINGTON, Jan. 2.—O!)—A federal unemployment relief drive rwili begin tomorrow when the senate manufactures committee begins consideration of the revised 1600,'W0.000 LaFollette - Costigan measure which was rejected last session. Welfare workers will appear to urge government aid to meet an scute situation this winter. The bill authorizes distribution of federal funds by the states through designated agencies. Senator Edward P. Costigan, Dem., Colo., will present figures of the Reconstruction Finance corporation to show the need of additional relief facilities. Famous Calvary Bows to Machine Age DRYDEN, Tex., Jan. 2.—(HE) —The first cavalry which once rode with Sheridan to Winchester bivouacked here tonight in retreat before the machine age and curtailed government expenditures. In accordance with war department economy orders, the century-old regiment evacuated Fort D. A. Russell at Marfa today and started in trucks for Camp Knox, Ky., there to be equipped with armored cars and otherwise mechanized. The troopers said goodbye to their horses at Marfa. Barbed wire, poison gases and machine guns have lessened the value of mounted soldiers. Experts thought the transfer an opportune time to place the unit in armored equipment. Aggressor Unknown In Oriental Clash WASHINGTON, Jan. 2.-0)— A year to a day after the Japanese occupation of Chinchow, which Secretary of State Stimson said destroyed “the last remaining administrative authority” of China in Manchuria, a new Chinese-Ja-panes clash has bgun. Its origin and probable consequences are yet obscure. But some officials here believe it may presage the long-expected Japanese conquest of Jehol province, just west of Manchuria proper, & region spare in population but rich in coal and iron. Geneva Chinese Not Surprised at Move GENEVA, Jan. 2—(EE)—Japanese occupation of Shanhaikwan, on the Chinese-Manchurian border, evoked little surprise in Chinese quarters here since, for many weeks, China has been warning the League of Nations that Japan has been seeking some pretext to advance on the Province of JehoL France To Employ No Help for Year PARIS, Jan. 2—(EE)—An econdmy decree prohibiting the government from employing additional help for one year, applying to the army and navy as well as civil departments, was signed tonight by President Lebrun. The decree is considered as Cheron’s first move to reduce the government’s burden of parasitical functionaries. Assembly Roosevelt To AskBalancing Of U.S. Budget President-Elect Hopes To Avoid Congressional Extra Session —HYDE PARK, N. Y., Jan. 2.— (UE) — President-elect Roosevelt will urge Democratic congressional leaders to exert strenuous efforts toward federal budget balancing in an attempt to avoid, if possible, an extra session of congress in the spring, his advisers indicated tonight With this end in view he was prepared to make definite Suggestions to the delegation headed by Speaker Garner, his erstwhile running mate, that will confer with him in New York City Thursday. To Study Veterans’ Aid Acording to his close friends, Roosevelt was ready to point out the necessity of slashing appro-praitions to the bone in order to balance the budget and to avert additional federal taxation. One of the items that he plans to scrutinize closely, it was declared, was the annual oulay for veterans relief, particularly the huge sums that is devoted to compensating veterans for. illness and injury of recent development but held to be the outgrowth of military or naval service. Roosevelt refused to elaborate further on the discussions other than to say “national problems of all description will be taken up,” it was stated. National-State Relations He returned to his country home late today to outline his plans for the meeting after a 150-mile automobile drive to Albany and back where he attended the formal inauguration' of Gov, Herbert H. Lehman, the Democratic successor. With his predecessor in the governorship, Alfred E. Smith, Roosevelt felicitated Lehman and then launched into an address that was interpreted by some of his advisers as a direct bid for co-opera-tion on the part of the chief executives of the 48 states. “It is time to define more clearly,” he said, “where the federal machinery for government ends and where the state machinery of government begins. It is time likewise for closer contacts between the president and the governors.” Riots Entertain Fans Outside Of Rose Bowl Two riots in which more than 500 boys and young men took part were quelled by police clubs and tear gas bombs outside Rose Bowl yesterday while the football game was in progress. Half a dozen persons, including two policemen and a woman, were injured and 29 arrests were made of “gatecrashers.” The first riot occurred when a small gang broke through a rest room and gained admittance inside the wire fence surrounding the stadium. Pasadena police quickly controlled them. Another group estimated at more than 500 stormed the fence, broke it down and grappled with officers. Calling on 60 Los Angeles police inside the bowl for aid, but still far outnumbered, police dispersed the gang by throwing tear bombs and breaking nightsticks over heads. Debate Team To Meet Utah Trio Thursday War Debt Cancellation To Furnish Topic for First 1933 Tilt Paraguayans Retreat LA PAZ, Bolivia, Jan. 2.—(Unofficial reports today said Bolivian infantry detachments routed a Paraguayan infantry and cavalry attack on Fort Mariscal Duarte in the Gran Chaco.

Greek Photos Next in Line El Rodeo Editor Solicits Members To Make Appointments Appointments for all remaining individual pictures for the 1933 El-Rodeo may be made starting today, according to the announcement of Walter Roberts, editor of the yearbook. Fraternity and , sorority pictures, both for social and professional houses, pictures of law seniors, and all other individual photos are included in this group. “Since Gibbon-Alien will move their studio away from the campus in the near future,” declared Roberts, “we find it necessary to secure these pictures before the final examinations start. Every day for the next three weeks must be filled with appointments in order to crowd them all in.” "The position that each fraternity and sorority will occupy in the yearbook,” he added, “will be determined by the rapidity with which their pages are filled, as well as by the size of their panels.” Appointments may be made in the editorial offices of El Rodeo ln the Student Union. Members of professional houses will have their pictures taken in informal dress. To check up on the work remaining on the yearbook, Roberts has called a meeting of the editorial staff for 3 p.m. Wednesday. At Last There’s Hope for Football Stay-at-Homes By Wendell Sether An old Oxford university cus-i tom that has become, with age, a i tradition, will be the basis of the j inspirational talk to be given by Dr. Bruce R. Baxter at this morning’s student assembly. Dr. Baxter will speak on "Beating the Bounds.” Organ selections to be played by Willard G. Smith are: “Canzonetta,” by Go-dart, and “Oralaine,” by Vincent. The thousands of Trojan football fans who were left outside when the gatemen announced that the Rose Bowl was filled yesterday, and the other thousands who never were able to penetrate beyond Colorado street will be taken care of next year, and will be able to experience all the pleasures and joys of the annual classic right at home on the S.C. campus. This is the dream of the powers that be. A special hall will be built to take care of the Rose Bowl overflow crowd. On entering it, the football fan will be run through a machine which will remove wallets, blacken shins, and knock out one’s breath in half the time of a Tournament of Roses crowd. Coming from this they will be seated in front of a television screen, which will be totally obscured from the spectator by cigar smoke, blue language, and ice cream purveyors, who will take special pains to shout in his ear. At his rear a club will beat on his head, another will crush his vertebrae while a loudspeaker will thunder raucously, ‘Didja see that pass?” A pop bottle will then drop on him, followed by a rain of tattered roooters’ cards. When the game is over he will be mechanically pummelled, and then lead over a treadmill that will register three miles before he 1is released. Then he will be placed in a small compartmnt about the size of an Austin cab, a sandbag placed on his lap, and carbon monoxide, dust, and smoke blown into his face and eyes. After three hours he will be released and allowed to go home for a cold supper and a trip to the hospital. If the football fans still lives, he will enjoy the special victory celebration, which will also be provided at small cost. He will be placed in a small stuffy room, barely large enough to accomodate him and a corset model, and while a radio plays “Fight On” in his ears, the walls of the closet will alternately cave in on him, hot, stuffy air will be forced down his lungs, and a bill for $12 will be given him wbea he leaves. In the first debate of 1933, two S.C. men will meet three debaters from the University of Utah Thursday noon at the Women’s Residence hall, it was announced by Debate Manager Worth Bernard last night “Resolved: that the United States Should Agree to the Cancellation of the Inter-Allied War Debts” is the question to be discussed. The discussion Is sponsored by the Los Angeles University of International Relations, and the intarnational relations groups on the campus, including the Y.M.C.A. No decision will be given. Martyn Agens and Trevor Hawkins will defend the negative side of the question for S.C. Utah will be represented by Jay Parkin»n, Ted Moss, and Ray Owen. The Trojan team Is coached by Dr. Alan Nichols. The debate will be given at a luncheon meeting which will be open to all students. “Because the question to be discussed is one of international interest and particularly timely, this debate has won the support of all of the campus peace groups, including the Los Angeles University of International Relations,” stated Bernard last night De Valera Frees Erin Legislature DUBLIN, Jan. 2— (EE)—Eamon De Valera, president of the Irish Free State, today dissolved the Dail Eireann in order to forestall a new opposition movement aimed at the overthrow of his government. While De Valera denied that his recent rift with the Labor party had anything to do with his action, it was understood that a new national party was to have been formed tomorrow for the prime purpose of precipitating the president’s downfall. De Valera and Laborite leaders split on the government’s proposed cut in civil service bonuses. The president, in announcing he had dissolved the Dail late tonight, expressed hope the Laborites will cooperate in the forthcoming election, which will be called for the purpose of electing a new Dail. The dissolution proclamation was issued at Government house and was signed by Governor General Donal Buckley and De Valera, as president of the executive council. Dog’s Chain Chokes Grid Star to Death RYE, N. Y., Jan. 2.—(EE)—Peter Van Haasteren, 17, was strangled to death today by his pet dog’s chain. The youth, a high school football star, was playing with the dog in the basement of his home. The chain slipped about Peter’s neck and caught on an overhead hook. The dog’s antics drew the chain taut. Hawaii Honors S.C. Exchange Student Gene Jordan, son of Mr. and Mrs. C. H. Jordan of 4831 Fifth avenue, is the student manager of Charles Atherton house, the University of Hawaii’s new memorial dormitory, according to word received from Honolulu. Jordan went to the island university as an exchange student from The University of Southern California last year. He liked the island university so well that he remained there. Jordan graduated from Metropolitan high school. City To Honor Trojans With Luncheon With no more worlds to conquer, the 1932 Trojan football team today turns to fulfilling the luncheon engagements refused during Christmas vacation when they will be guests of the city of Los Angeles tomorrow noon at the Biltmore hotel, in recognition of their national championship attainment City officials and cooncilmen will be present to congratulate Coach Howard Jones and the players on theif victory over Pittsburgh in the Rose Bowl yesterday.

Panthers Fade Before Second Half Onslaught Warburton, Griffith Lead Locals to Win Over Eastern Champs By Art Gierlich Southern California, 35; Pittsburgh, 0. Thus did Howard Jones* Trojaa gridiron warriors prove to a bewildered Pitt football team and 85,000 spectators yesterday after* noon in the Rose bowl that they were the premier machine in the nation. Pittsburgh, champions of the east and conquerors of Notre Dame and the Army, wilted before a savage last half attack of the Southern Californians and were trampled underfoot as the Trojans rode to their twentieth straight triumph and fourth consecutive Rose bowl win. Clever Passing Attack The Trojans, by virtue of yesterday’s vistory, will be given the Jack Rissman trophy, emblematic of the national title. Howard Jones’ warriors left no doubt in anyone’s mind as to their super* iority, and the lop-sided margin does the Cardinal-and-Gold clad gridders justice. Trojans Score Early Led by Homer Griffith, “Cotton’' Warburton, Ray Sparling, Gordie Clark in the ball-toting department, and Ernie Smith and Tay Brown on the line, the Trojans outclassed the best men that Pitt could show. The Pittsburgh ends, Joe Skladany and Ted Dailey sparkled on the forward wall for the Panther clan, while all-American Warren Heller and his running mate, Mike Sebastian, starred in the losers’ backfield. Troy started scoring early in the game and then went into a : coma for the rest of the first half. Larry Stevens kicked off to Sebastian who ran the ball back to the 16-yard line. The Trojans held for downs after Sebastian had romped 14-yards on a reverse formation, the Jonesmen taking the ball on their own 32-yard stripe. 68 Yards In 9 Plays Then the Jonesmen started on a sustained drive that carried them 68-yards in nine plays and was climaxed by a spectacular catch of a forw'ard pass by Ford Palmer, outstanding linesman on the field. Sebastian was covering Palmer on the play, but the Trojan end pulled one of his “mirac cle” catches, and Troy led, 6-0. Smith kicked the conversion point. Early in the third period, Southern California, after being checked on several goal-line marches, scored its second touchdown, Homer Griffith took a flat pass from “Brick” Bright as he crossed the goal-line. On fourth down with two to go. Bright shot a bullet-pass to Griffith as the (Continued on page three) Garner Leaves House For New Job WASHINGTON, Jan. 2.—(EE) —Speaker John N. Garner took matters in his own hands today and resigned as a member of the seventy-third congress to which he had been elected last November. Garner becomes vice president after March 4 and has had some difficulty in giving up his congressional seat because of legal complications in Texas. He took the case to Governor Ross Sterling today in a formal, letter of resignation. “My election as vice president of the United States makes it impossible for me to qualify as a member of the 73rd congress,” the speaker explained. New Year’s Death List Rises to 110 By United Pres* Automobiles, guns, fires, and poison liquor took a heavy toll of life during the two-day holiday occasioned by New Years falling on a Sunday. More than 110 deaths were attributed directly or indirectly to the celebration, a United Press survey showed tonight Of these, almost half were due to traffic accidents, in most of which automobiles figured. Several deaths were caused by trains. Gun-play took a heavy toll. Fires kille#d five. Poison liquor took at least eight lives. In Chicago two men shot each other to death In a spectacular ! night club duel and five others were killed by bullets. Remorse following New Years celebrations or despondency a-, i mong persons because of the contrast between their own destitu-; tion and the New Years gaiety about them led many to euicide.
