Field trip planned by geology classes In order that his geology students may obtain a first hand acquaintance of structures. Dr. Hoyt R. Gale, assistant professor of geology. has arranged a field trip for Saturday. The group is to meet at the corner of Avenue 64 and La Loma road at 9:15 a.m., to begin an all day trip down Arroyo Seco, with a side trip to Eagle rock. "Eagle rock itself is a remnant of a conglomerate,” Dr. Gale said, “ana makes very interesting study ol what the process of erosion can do over a period of time.” Some of the geologic structures to be studied are anticlines, syn-clines, igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rocKs. as well as earthquake faults, both living and dead. The Raymond fault, which runs past the Huntington library, is a live fault, Dr. Gale pointed out. Students are to wear old clothes hiking shoes, and bring their lunch-k, at the trip ia an all day jaunt. Student body will cast peacetime votes; petitions open May 6 Maytime will mean election time for the SC student body. Still following its plan to revert to peacetime election procedure, the ASSC senate last night voted to open petitions for new ASSC student body offices on May 6 and selected May 15 as official date of the nominations assembly at the request of President Bill Armbruster. The installation assembly of new officers will be held during the week following elections. During war years, student body officers have held office for two of the three-a-year terms. Because of this fact, the present leaders’ term of office will end in February, according to the constitution. To eliminate confusion and prevent added expense for the university, the senate decided in December to allow the present officers to remain in power until new elections are held. Thus, the university will be able to get back onto its regular election schedule, with the president, vice-president, secretary, and treasurer remaining in office from September until June. Stop week, the seven-day period when students postpone all social activities and prepare for final examinations, will begin on Monday, Feb. 11, Jackie Boice, vice-president, announced. Reporting on the results of a recent meeting of the newly formed student-faculty committee to deal with student and faculty problems* Armbruster stated that the group (Continued on Page 4) Wampus fate finally told In response to thousands of inquiries (well, three at least) a reporter was sent to ,the crimson and gold sanctum of the Wampus office to try to solve the mystery of the long-awaited January issue of that publication. “Wampus?” repeated H. J. Tobias, the editor, wielding a paint brush. “Wampus?” asked Donna Knox, assistant editor, with a similar preoccupation. “Wampus?” muttered Alice Gordon, office manager, wiping a blob of paint from her forehead. Oh yes!” screamed H. J, enlightenment shining through the pale jonquil film of Kemtone on her face. “That’s a good question —we’re sure glad you brought it up!” This forthcoming issue, explained the triumvirate, has been beset with one unfortunate circumstance after another. In the first place, according to Mrs. Tobias, the cuts were all sent to the wrong printer and it took a week before they were finally located and sent to their rightful destination. Navy trainees dance set at Deauville club Annual affair to feature soft lights, sweet music of Ray Davis, two buffet dinners Ray Davis and his orchestra will be featured at the naval trainees’ dance tomorrow night at 8:30 at the Deauville Beach club, and all members of the naval units on campus will be given liberty until 2:30 a.m. for the affair. Two buffet dinners will be served at the dance, the first at 9:30 and the second at 10:30 p.m. -—— The two-dinner arrangement, according to Chuck Franklin, member of the dance committee, was planned so that there will not be too large a crowd to be served at one time. Receiving the guests at the dance will be Capt. S. Y. Cutler, commanding officer of the naval reserve officers training corps unit; Cmdr. T. E. Chambers, and Capt. W. H. Godel. “This dance is an annual affair on campus and it • has always drawn a large crowd,” said Gene Matson, member of the dance committee. “We believe that this one will surpass any given in the past. It wTill be a great success as it is one of the big events of the year.” Both of the two bands organized by orchestra leader Ray Davis will be playing for SC students Friday night. The large 12-piece group will play at the naval dance, and a 7-piece orchestra will play at the Trovets dance. Bids are priced at $1 and may be obtained in the navy barracks from Skip McMahon, Gene Matson, Jack Jennings, and Chuck Franklin. “They are really selling- fast so be sure to get yours early,” said Franklin. "With soft lights, swre^f, music, and ! good food, how can the dance miss?” asked Franklin. “Our commanding officers and all the trainees are really looking forward to it.” Collier s prints article on SC This week's issue of Collier’s magazine has g^ven national recognition to SC's aeronautical research activities In an article regarding surplus army bombers that are being given to colleges and universities throughout the country for aeronautical studying purposes, under a program originated by General Arnold. SC has taken over Hancock College of Aeronautics, Santa Maria, and is offering complete aeronautical courses for pilots, mechanics and engineers. Tne university has 12 surplus aircraft: a B-17, B-25 Mitchell bomber, P-38 Lightning fighter, P-47 Thunderbolt, P-63 Kingcobra, Lockheed Lodestar transport and six training planes, in addition to a supply of engines, parts of accessories. Other schools participating in aeronautical trair»ng programs are Purdue university, the University of Illinois, Western Michigan State college, Colby Junior college, Grant Technical college and Stephens college, Columbia, Missouri. Police science course offered by law forces Of special interest to students desiring work in the field of police science and administration will be the police vocational conferences announced by Dr. Emery Evans Olson, dean of the School of Public Administration. Capt. Roger Murdock, of the Los Angeles Police department, will be present at the first conference to advise students interested in this field what courses to take to prepare them most suitably for entrance into work of this type. The conference, starting Thursday afternoon, Jan. 31, at 3:15 in 252 administration will be an informal discussion, with Captain Murdock answering questions and informing students of the chances and what jobs are open. Various branches of work, Including criminology, will be covered. An alumnus of SC, Captain Murdock received a bachelor of science degree in public administration in 1941. At present he is a member of the police curriculum committee, an organization concerned with the in police administration. Representatives of the Los Angeles City police department who are on the committee include Deputy Police Chief Richard Simon, Capt. Robert W. Bowling, Lt. James L. Fulton, and Lt. Leland Jones of the police department crime laboratory. As an endeavor to acquaint students with basic facts concerning the fields they wish to enter, plans are under way for conferences on organization planning and administration, and administrative research. Gee, a soldier!' kiddies cry as they see Tommy “Hey, you stepped on my foot.” “You shut up or I’ll pull your hair ribbon.’* “I dare you, and if you do I’ll tell the teacher.” More threats and taunts of this sort echoed down University avenue yesterday as dozens of little grammar school children skipped around the campus of Troy. The third grade of the 32wd street school was out on a tour of the Los Angelas County museum in Exposition park, and it was a field day for the younger generation. f “We took them to see all the fossils,” said Josephine Hasquet, SC student who is doing her practice at the grammar school,” and they really enjoyed it” The A3 and B3 classes didn't seem particularly impressed with the campus, paying more attention to each other than to the sights of SC. Tommy Trojan received favorable comments though, like “Gee, look at the soldier,” and “Yeah, he used to be blue and gold.” Tirebiter, when interviewed on the hordes of children crossing the campus all day long, could only say, “They’re getting younger every year.” Troy to hear geological talk Research on Channel island sedimentary deposits to be told by Dr. Clements today “The Geologic History of the Channel Islands Region, Southern California,” will be discussed by Dr. Thomas Clements, professor of geology, at the 13th annual research lecture of the School of Research, *this afternoon at 4:15 in 145 Hancock. Dr. Clements has been working on the sedimentation of the area since 1939. This work involves the taking of core samples from the sea floor, sometimes as deep as 3000 feet, anc I bringing them to the sedimentation laboratory in the Hancock Foundation building for analyzing. Dr Clements has worked almost solelj on this project, with the help of graduate students from time to time “Using the published works of a good many writers, in particular the works of Dr. Kenneth O. Emery, former geologist at the Scripps -institute in La Jolla, who is now assistant professor of geology at DR. THOMAS CLEMENTS . . . ’explores' sea floor Frats will hold traditional fete Vets to cut a rug at 'Stomp' Friday That shuffling of feet heard around the campus is just anxious veterans practicing for the “Separation Stomp” .to be held tomorrow night. All veterans are invited to the dance which will be an informal affair and are assured that if they attend stag, their evening will not be spent alone. The AWS, Panhellenic, and other wTomen’s clubs will have some of their most charming coed members present. Married veterans are urged to attend with their wives. Hindman to be guest of Cosmopolitan club “As the number one power in the world, the United States will have responsibility whether it wants it or not, in relation to racial problems,” stated Siegfried Hesse, president of Cosmopolitan club. Because of the current racial questions, Dr. Wilbert L. Hindman will discuss^ "America’s-— Race Problem, an International Question,” as guest speaker at the Cosmopolitan club's noon meeting today at the YWCA. “We must set an example for other nations. The Chinese people will look to us for industrialization. Only since 1943 have we treated them as equals, but for thousands of years they have considered all men brothers. The next 50 years will be spent working with Russia which has the best record in the world as far as racial discrimination is concerned, therefore we must keep our principles high and our house clean,” said Hesse. “Failure to carry out our responsibilities in this line has been demonstrated in the fact, that the UNO can not find a community in the United States, which is free of race prejudice, to be the world capital “Too many hidden pages in the history of this nation may keep it from parading on the world stage as the stellar performer, unless theseare re-written in the form of better racial and religious adjustments for the future,” commented Dr. Hindman. All SC students are invited to attend Dr. Hindman's lecture in order to become better informed on today’s problems in the postwar era, according to Hesse. In the second place, according to Miss Knox, the printer has had some very urgent business at a certain former relocation camp, and the Wampus dummy (no relation to the staff) has been languishing in his precincts for the past three weeks. In the third place. Miss Gordon summed up, the Wampus staff hopes that the persons mentioned in Roses and Razzes will still be known on campus. “However,” they screamed in unison, “the pledge pictures are magnificent!” "But when is it coming out?" persisted the reporter desperately. "Some time next *week,” Mrs. Tobias responded meekly, blushing furiously. ‘Time for labor to take strong stand,’ advocates debater Gould Pledge Sorority and fraternity pledge presidents are requested to meet it 7:30 p.m. tonight at the Alpha Delta Pi hous* The present labor-management conflict came under scrutiny in yesterday noon's debate at Town meeting, when Bill Boyce, Maurice Gould, and Dr. Robert B. Pettengill, associate professor of economics, ‘presented views on how to remedy the situation. In appraising the labor situation, Dr. Pettengill pointed out that increased wages, increased prices, and increased costs go hand in hand. If wages are raised, it follows that costs of production will rise and inevitably prices of commodities. “When this occurs, the inno-' cent bystanders are the ones who suffer. The consumer with a fixed income, who has to pay higher prices because management and labor get together and agree on higher wages, is placed in an unfortunate position,” he explained. income stability, and protection o! innocent parties are the goals which Dr. Pettengill feels should be strived for in order to solve the existing problem and to preclude future deadlock between management and labor. Speaking in defense of labor’s position, Maurice Gould expressed the view that the important consideration in the present industrial issue is not the fact that there is only a 3% cent difference between the demands of labor and management. Rather is it the fact that management realizes this is an opportune moment to assert its strength, since 1942 legislation guarantees it the same income in 1946 as it averaged between 1937 and 1939. Should there be a deficit in man- Full employment, price stability, agement’s income, this will be made Four fraternities got together one | night several years ago and had a party. It was such a success that J it has become a tradition for Sigma Alpha Epsilon, Phi Kappa. Sigma Phi Epsilon, and Kappa Sigma to get together one night every year for some kind of social function. Saturday night the four fraternities are holding a dinner-dance at the Deauville Beach club, Santa Monica. These affairs are planned to promote interfratemity friendliness and unity. The danfce is exclusive to members of the fraternities and their dates, who will receive corsages for the dance, and favors. No bid will be sold but the master list will be checked at the door, and formal attire is requested. Dinner will be served promptly at 8, followed by dancing. One member from each house is on the committee in charge. Sig Ep Chuck Newton is chairman and committeemen include Bob Harbison, SAE; Jim Mitchell, Kappa Sig, and Jack Erp, Phi Kappa. Newton announced, “This dinner-dance, which has become traditional among the four fraternities, is expected .to be one of the finest events of the year, and over 200 couples will be on hand to hear the lilting music of Russ Caruthers and his orchestra. Ample space has been obtained to meet the coat checking situation; so girls, don’t be afraid to wear your mink. You will get them back, we promise.” SC, and using the work of sedimentation carried on by the Hancock Foundation for Scientific Research, I’ve tried to reconstruct the geography of the area for a selected number of periods in the past,” stated Dr. Clements. Dr. Clements explained that the reason work is moving ahead faster now than before is because the systems of dredging and taking of core samples for analysis are now in use where they could not be before. “The work of many persons and institutes has gone into this project, notably the Scripps institute, and Dr. Francis P. Shepard and Dr. Emery of this institute,” added Dr. Clements. According to Dr. Clements .the area around the channel islands was submerged about the beginning of the ice age — approximately 1,000.000 years ago. The formation of the glaciers drew the water from the sea, and this area emerged. The whole area was at one time an archipelago. and the Palos Verdes hill; were an island. The smaller islands | of the area were completely submerged. “This is a highly speculative work,” continued Dr. Clements. “It is difficult enough to do something like this on land, but when one is dealing with the ocean floor it becomes a hazardous proposition to state anything definite.” The whole area is of both sedimentary and igneous composition, and there is a tremendous amount of lava throughout the islands and the sea floor. This shows that the area was built up through volcanic action, and sedimentary deposits. The project confirms ideas held by geologists for a good many years, and is conducted by the system of sampling already men-(Continued on Page 4) up from the excess war profits tax. “Management is therefore in a position tj make inroads against the gains that labor has made in the past,” said Gould. “At the same time, labor must make an attempt to establish itself now more than ever if it hopes to have a voice in its future welfare.” On the side of management, Bill Boyce deplored the nation’s lack of a realistic attitude towards our economic sit*ation. “We are in a state of industrial neurosis,” he stated, “of which the occupational therapy, has been sent present misunderstanding between labor and capital is an expres- | sion.” As a solution to the existing crisis, Boyce contended that* impartial arbitration between the parties would be adequate instead of the confusion which results from compulsory measures.
