England, and Italy rushed to the defense of the League of Nations today after the world peace organization had been beset by crit- j ics of its sometimes timid policies, threats of warfare in two continents in disregard of league obligations and by financial difficulties. ! 1 x»rd Cecil of England, the vet- j eran, always courageous peace worker, led thc defense of the league, delivering from the tribune one of the most eloquent appeals of his career and blaming the member states for “the league’s inability to reach successful results in gr^at international problems.” It was one of the frankest speeches made recently from the tribune and L«ord Cecil went to the heart of the trouble when he thundered out that the league should not be attacked or destroyed when the members rather than the league machinery are at fault. senior pictures will be made bo- the same time.

TO EXTEND MORATORIUM Assurances were made by Walter Newton. the president's secretary, that the 7T per cent moratorium on seed and feed loans granted yetserday to grain farmers would be extended likewise to producers of cotton, tobacco, and other crops where actual distress is shown. Norman Thomas, Socialist candidate speaking spei.kiug at Minneapolis, had this to say about his opponents. “I called* Gov. Roosevelt a fanatic some time ago. Now whatever 1 called him would bo prefaced with the adjective “synthetic.” He is a terrible statesman, but a good politician. # “The depression i3 unjustly being laid to President Hoover. That's giving him too much credit. He isn't big enough to cause such a crisis.” Secretary of All-Year Club To Give Talk College of Commerce To Hear Thomas Talk At Rally Today Lambda Gamma Phi Key To 3e Awarded by Dean McClung With a timely and interesting subject for a topic, Don Thomas, executive secretary of the All-Year club, will speak at the first rally of the year for the College of Commerce, Tuesday morning at 9 o'clock in Touchstone theater.

All names should be presented fc»fore 12 noon Monday. a. To stay a^av from the “big national stuff” and to write about the "small, simple things” was the advice given to young literary aspirants by Robert Frost, eminent American poet, in Bovard auditorium last night. His talk on “Poetry and Uie Size of America” "was sponsored by Epsilon Phi, honorary English fraternity, and attracted an audience of nearly 1000. “We are in danger in America today because we are a great nation.” he declared, “and many of our authors are tempted to write 'great* poetry. But the size of America isn't everything. We can well afford to talk ourselves down a little. In fact, much of the literature nowadays expresses such modesty. I suppose we should call Mencken a ‘modest man.” Following a few short remarks which he humorously termed his “lecture,” Mr. Frost recited several of his more familiar poems, includ- ing "The Runaway,” "The Cow in Apple Time,” “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening,” “Dust of Snow,’1 “An Old Man’s W'inter Night,” “The Death of the Hired Men,” “The Shattered Water,” “The Mending Wall,” “Birches,” and an unpublished poem, “Neither in Deep Nor out Far.” Mr. Frost's advice to writers to confine their efforts to simple subjects is in keeping with the type of poetry written by the New England poet himself. He is famous for his verses portraying the unsophisticated farm life in New Hampshire. Marion Darlington, president of Epsilon Phi, introduced the poet. After his appearance in the auditorium, Mr. Frost was guest at a reception in his honor given in the Hall of Nations. The lecture is the first of a series featuring noted literary figures planned for this semester by the English society. Dinner Scheduled For Next Week By Blackstonians Blackstonian society, national honorary pre-legal fraternity, will celebrate its first meeting of the new term with a dinner in Student Union 422, Tuesday evening, Oct. 4, at 5:45. Prof. Orville P. Cockerill, of the School of Law, will be the speaker. Malcolm Alexander, president, announces that the meeting will be adjourned at 8 o’clock and that reservations must be made by Monday morning at the# political science office, Bridge 210. The price is 50 cents. Leo Adams Urges Students To Buy S.C. Season Books Declaring that only 2400 student activity books have been sold this year as compared with 3600 last year, Leo Adams, assistant general manager, today urged Trojans to buy them immediately. Adams said that students who have not yet procured their books may buy them from Marie Poetker at the cashier’s window at the University Book store. S. C. Talent To Entertain At Grid Rally Scholarship Cup Award Will Be Presented At Pep Meet Setting feet tapping and spirits soaring, Les Hoagland's campus orchestra will be the opening feature in the rally committee's new policy of "S.C. talent for S.C. rallies” at this morning’s pre-game celebration of the first conference battle with Washington State tomorrow. The eight mad music-men will tantalize Trojans with modern popular numbers. In addition to regular orchestra numbers, a trio of members composed of bass viol, clarinet, and piano will present a series of musical skits guaranteed to make the sides split. This triumvirate participated also in a number of rallies last year. CROSS TO SPEAK Tomorrow’s grid fray will be explained from the standpoint of S.C.’s rivals by Bob Cross, Washington State student body president, who will be an honored guest speaker of the day. Cross will be introduced by Orv Mohler. Combining scholarship and athletics, the awarding of the traditional Interfraternity scholarship cup by Page Parker, president of the Interfraternity council, will also be a feature of the program. Ernie Smith, president of Omega Deuteron chapter of Phi Sigma Kappa, national social fraternity and winner of the cup, will receive the award. Phi Sigma Kappa won the trophy with a scholarship average of 1.374. ALUMNI TROPHY The cup, a donation of the Interfraternity alumni association, will be awarded each year for the next 50 years, at the termination of which time it will be placed in the Trojan trophy room in the Student Union. Women will be reinstated on the first floor of the auditorium, as there will be no regular session of yelling and singing practice at the pep fest. However, at rallies where official rooting practice is scheduled, women will sit in the balcony as they did last week, according to Bailey Edgerton, yell king, who will be assisted by the Doty twins in leading cheers at the assembly. To permit the utilization of every minute alloted to the rally, students are asked to come as early as possible. The program will be broadcast over KFAC as usual. Trojan Mentor Cinema Students Witness Preview Screen entertainment and study of the cinema were combined last night for a group of about 200 members of the S. C. Cinema league, students in cinematography classes, and their guests, who witnessed a special preview of “Blonde Venus” at the Paramount studios. The trip was arranged by Dr. Boris V. Morkovin in cooperation with Paramount officials. Plans to have Josef von Sternberg, director of the production, address the visitors, were necessarily cancelled by his absence. He is in the West Indies for his health. Dr. Morkovin, temporarily turning the theater into a classroom, pointed out some of the salient general characteristics of von Sternberg’s work. It was his opinion thal the famed director was not fully- suited to the type of picture “Blonde Venus” was. The excursion was the first of a series planned by Dr. Morkovin and Dorothy Wiesinger, president of Cinema league, lor this year. Last year a number of visits were made to film studios. Coach Howard Jones, who will send his varsity gridders against Washington State tomorrow in the conference opener. Dr. Curtius Will Give Address at Relations Dinner Dr. Juliii3 Curtius, former German minister of foreign affairs, will be the honored guest and speaker at an elaborate dinner to be given Oct. 7 at tha Elks club under the auspices of the Council on International Relations. Included among the guests of honor who will welcome Dr. Curtius are: Dr. and Mrs. von KleinSmid, Mayor John C. Porter, and Dr. Gustav Struve, German consul in Los Angeles. “Germany and Disarmament” will be the subject of Dr. Curtius' pddress. The speaker is particularly 'qualified to talk on this subject by reason of his broad career in the politics of his native land, according to facts outlined by Dr. J. Eugene Harley, president of the council. Dr. Curtius, who served as an artillery captain on the western front during the World war and who wears the Iron Cross, was cne of Dr. Gustav Stresemann's friends and advisers. After the death of Dr. Stresemann, Dr. Curtius became his successor and served in the capacity of minister of foreign affairs until last fall when he retired. Washington State Gridders To Open Conference Season Tomorrow Against Trojans Coach Howard Jones Will Start Revamped Lineup To Stem Highly-Touted Backfield Attack Of Invaders From Northwest By ED MADRID With the memory of an unexpected 7-6 defeat in 1930, which rudely shattered whatever hopes they had of capturing the Coast conference championship that year, still lingering, Coach Howard Jones and his Thundering Herd gridsters will face their second dangerous foe in »e W ashington State Cougars tomorrow afternoon at*- —- * the Olympic stadium. Leon Rosenbaun, credit manager of Consolidated Rock Products Co., lectured to Prof. P. j. Ewart’s class in credit and collection, yesterday morning. His subject was "Selective Problems of Mercantile Credit Managers and Their Solution.” Plantecclosjy Class To Take Field Trip Members of the plantecology class are to take their first field trip of the fall semester tomorrow. The class is to visit the salt marsh at Del Rev, and also the sand dunes at El Segundo. The class will meet in the herbarium tomorrow morning, and precede from there to the scene of the field trip. Jones hasn't forgotten that day when Mentor “Babe” Hollingberry sprang the upset which stunned even the most pessimistic of Trojan supporters and made him realize that the squad from the Northwest had one of the most powerful teams in the nation. Nor have his players. TWO STARS GONE But the aggregation which trots out on the turf of Olympic stadium tomorrow will not have on its roster the names of Mel Hein or the incomparable "Turk” Edwards. Gone are both of these men whose prowess on the gridiron brought fame and national recognition to their team and their coach. However, on the 36-man conti-gent which was scheduled to arrive at 8:30 this morning on the Lark at the Glendale station, the Cougars have one of the finest backs on the coast in George Theo-doratus, the 240 pound Grecian behemoth, who does his footballing for tha Washington team from the fullback position. PASSING THREAT And then if this huge man-moun-tain fails them, Coach Hollingberry has another ace up his sleeve which he plans to use against the Trojans. He is George Sander, a half of no mean ability and a great passer. He is undoubtedly without a peer in this departmen on the coast. Knowing that he is going to get a rousing aerial reception from the fighting Cougars, Jones has been drilling his men on State passes all week, but the Trojans have not responded to the teachings of the Headman as readily as they should. As a result the Thundering Herd may not do much thundering tomorrow and will get 60 minutes of mighty tough iootball. COUGARS TOUGH Southern California cannot afford to let up any time because given an inch, the Cougars will go places and do things, and one of these places might be a touchdown, or one of these things might be pushing the Cardinal and Gold warriors all over the field. Utah clearly demonstrated that the men of Troy have their flaws and the most glaring one is weakness against passes. With a couple of shifts in his lineup, Jones will send a powerful offensive team on the field. If Griffith starts at full, Mohler at quarter, and McNeish at inside (Continued on page three) R. Stacy-Judd To Give Tall ‘Mayan Civilization’ Is Tonic ior Monday Assembly Period Robert Stacy-Judd, internationally known architect, engineer, and explorer, is to be guest speaker Monday morning, Oct. 3, at the university assembly. His topic will be “Mayan Civilization.” Mr. Stacy-Judd was born in London, England. He was educated at St. Paul's school, London, and continued his studies in many of England’s finest technical schools. He also spent five years traveling ani studying on the continent. In the spring of 1930 Mr. Starv-Judd led an expedition into the depths of Yucatan, penetrating into territory before unknown to white men. He took with him movie and still cameras and recorded much valuable information on the topography, vegetation, natives and ruing of ancient buildings found in that territory. His findings, which he wrote in his book, “Exploring Mysterious Yucatan,” have proven to be of great archeological value as well as intensely interesting to the casual reader. In his assembly lecture Monday he will discuss these discoveries and his adventures in the jungle. John Garth, organist, will offer "Elevation,” by Lange, and “Marche Solonnelle,” by Borowski, as additional attractsons on the program. Adams Announces Stadium Workers for W. S. C. Game Stating that all men should report wearing rooter’s caps and white shirts, Leo Adams, assistant general manp-gsr, last night announced the list of stadium workers for the Washington State — Southern California game tomorrow. Adams said that all men should coire on time or they would lor,e their positions. TICKET- SELLERS Report to Roy McRann, 10:30 a.m., at gate 29: Walt Ferrand, Nate Rosin. Garry Hill. Francis F.
