Thirteen years ago Dr. George P. Hammond, who was then assistant professor of history, was the speaker at^the first lecture sponsored by the School of Research. The aim of that lecture, which has been carried on throughout the years, was to present to the public the various research activities that are carried on by the different schools and colleges of SC. According to Emory S. Bogardus, director of the School of Research, all of the different fields at the university will be represented in the lectures in the course of time. Lectures are selected by the executive committee of the School of Research. Dr. Bogardus said that there is a tendency to alternate the lecturers between the science fields and those fields of humanities. The speaker for the next year’s lecture is always announced at the preceeding session according to Dr. Bogardus. The executive committee is composed of Ruth W. Brown, John D. Cooke, Harry J. Deuel, J. Eugene Harley, Emery E. Olson, Howard W. Patmore, Albert S. Raubenheimer, Lawrence M. Riddle. Louis P. Thorpe, Richard E. Vollrath, LeRov S. Weatherby, and Irl G. Whitchurch. Dr. Clements will present the findings to date of a continued study of the channel island region of southern California. He states that the research lecture must be considered a progress report. The geology of some of the islands have jbeen thoroughly studied, but that i of others is only slightly known. The seafloor has been the object of intensive study, but many questions concerning it remain unanswered. On the basis of what is known, however, it is possible to envision a picture of the geological history of the region that must be correct. Dr. Clements will illustrate his lecture with slides, pictures, and maps. According to Dr. Bogardus, plans are under way for the university to publish these illustrations as a brochure. ists, and popular republicans Nomination' of Gouin to succeed Gen. Charles DeGaulle was considered a victory for the communists, who earlier in the day had refused the candidacy of socialist Vincent Auriol and had refused to consider anyone else but Gouin. In advancing Gouin’s candidacy to break the three-day crisis that has existed since DeGaulle resigned suddenly Sunday afternoon, the communist political bureau declared that he was a “personality over and above politics. (A radio Paris broadcast heard by CBS said that DeGaulle would release two statements to the press after the new government was formed, on stating his reasons for his political retirement and the retirement and the other addressed to “the men who joined him on June 18, 1940.”) Gouin had steadfastly refused to accept the nomination throughout the crisis. Late today, however, he accepted when socialists and popular republicans agreed to his candidacy. After his acceptance, Gouin conferred with communist leader Jacques Duclos and Maurice Thorez and socialist chief Daniel Mayer. One of the first acts of the chamber of deputies tomorrow wijl be to nominate a new speaker to take the place of Gouin. Communist leaders agreed that since Gouin was a socialist, his place should be taken by one of his party fellows. inel. plans I have outlined,” he told the committee, “congress will have to tell us which of our jobs it does not In announcing the reductions, ce-Adm.

Plans have also been made for the formation of a receiving line which will welcome the guests at the dance. A few of the members of this receiving line 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. These plans were also announced by Chuck Franklin, who added the comment that “we plan that this dance should surpass any which have been given in the past, and I predict that it will be a great success.” “Bids have already gone on sale and may be bought for the small sum of $1,” added Franklin.

Trovets wish to point out that while it was announced yesterday that only veterans will be admitted to the dance, this statement actually applies to the male constituent only. The women need only be veterans of other dances which is generally conceded to be a prerequisite if one wishes to avoid undue wear and tear on the corns. Men are urged to come to the affair stag since the AWS and Panhellenic are sending plenty of fair partners for the vets, as are the various dormitories on campus. Since It is held to be self-evident that no veteran’s wife, in her right mind, would let her husband attend a dance stag at which there were to be dozens of aomely college maidens, equally alone, Trovets have agreed that married vets may bring their spouses. Trovets emphasize that dress will be strictly informal, as will be the dance itself which aims at getting the veterans on campus all together in one spot to help them get acquainted with each other. The af-lair is open to all SC vets and is not limited to Trovets. was Howard More, chairman of the chamber's fiesta committee. Miss Tevis, Trojan ski club member, and contestant for the Sweetheart of Sigma Chi, and Miss Luster, active member of the Trojan ski club, will be introduced as queen's escorts Friday at the fiesta Snow Ball at the Riviera Country club. Muzzy Marcellino and his band will be featured at the affair. An invitation to all students of SC has been extended and bids may be obtained for $3 a couple from officers of the Trojan ski club. Sponsored by the Junior Chamber of Commerce, the Fiesta week includes ice skating tournaments, hockey matches, speed skating, climaxed by a weekend ski meet at Big Pine, in which the Trojan Ski club has been invited to participate, along with all the ski and skating clubs of southern California. Inaugurating the first postwar southern California winter sports events of a large scale, the dance and the queen and her escorts will receive nation-wide publicity with the events being covered by national magazines. Art Van Kamp and Bob Walker, both former Trojans and active in the junior chamber of commerce are ; also handling plans along with More. Appropriate dress for the Snow Ball will be informal with ski clothes predominate at the affair. Dancing will begin at 8 p.m. and ! last until 1 a.m. Highlight of the week will be an exhibition of figure skating at the Polar palace Tuesday night which will feature members of Sonja Henie's skating group. After the exhibition the rink will be opened to the audience. Admission for the event wil be $1. Beginning at 7:45, the affair will be broadcast.

Dr. Burby is author of “Cases on Community Property” and “The Lawr Refresher.” He also has written many articles for law reviews, and was one of two persons selected to give a refresher course to returning attorney-veterans by the State bar of California. The speaker will begin at 12:30; those who prefer to do so may bring their own lunches or come in time for the lecture. Boyce further asserts. “Strikes are disgusting but independent attitudes between capital and lab**'' must be allowed expressing ir necessary. to cause voluntary compromise where arbitration has been unable to obviate differences. To restrict healthy expression by compulsion will result in less harmony and progress between capital and labor. Fact finding boards on an ability to pay basis, will result in compulsion.” Third member of the speakersf group will be Dr. Robert B. Pettengill, associate professor of economics, who will speak on ways by which Members of the Public Affairs club are requested to attend the SC Town meeting today in 101 Harris, in place of the usual meeting at the YW. “The subjects to be discussed at the Town Meeting are in line with the interests of our club,'* said SaUy Short, president of the Public Affairs club, “and since the meeting is to be at the same time as our own, I feel it would be to our members’ interests to attend.” the labor situation may be appraised. The SC Town Meeting is under the co-chairmanship of Frances Griffin and Kay Mancusi. In speaking for labor, Gould maintains that the real need is for the public to prepare itself to view the disputes from an objective standpoint. “We should guard against allowing ourselves to be misguided by those forces and interests which would use the present crisis as an opportunity for breaking the back of organized labor by removing its gains accomplished during the war.” Dr. PettengiU appraises the situation in saying, “Labor is operating under the same principle as management in seeking to get the most it can for itself. It is using traditional tactics of the strike, together with special appeals to enlist popular support, such as (1) to maintain take-home pay in order to keep up national purchasing power. (2) to offset increased cost of living, and <3) to share in business profits when business is good.” Each speaker is allotted eight minutes, at the end of which time, discussion will be open generally to those present. The SC Towm meet-j ing is sponsored by Dr. Carlton Rodee, head of the political science department, and was founded a year ago by a group of students and faculty members who were interested in current affairs. __. Rodeo deadline set for space orders All organizations wishing to make reservations for space in the El Rodeo must do so by Feb. 1. which will be the final date to obtain space in the annual. Positively no other reservations will be accepted after this time, stated Clarice Thurman, editor. All honoraries, professionals, and dormitories that wish to reserve space in the annual must inform the El Rodeo office immediately in order that arrangements can be made. A letter addressed to Miss Thurman, stating the exact amount of space requested must be in the El Rodeo office by Feb. 1. Advance orders taken in S.U. for Seahorse Orders for Seahorse, all-unit magazine slated for circulation on campus Feb. 15, are being taken now at the cashier’s window, Student Union, it was revealed by circulation manager Wayne Crawford today. The Seahorse is being revived after having suspended publication during the war years due !-—- to the acute paper shortage at that time. Editors Ray Suttles and John Moore have declared their intention of surpassing the already high mark set by former issues of the magazine which, they point out, were always eagerly anticipated by students of Troy. Dedicated to the unit graduating class, the magazine will contain a message to the class from President Von KleinSmid, and another from Capt. 8. Y. Cutler, unit commanding ' officer. Pictures of all men in the unit will be included in the contents, some formal, and some informal snapshots Liken candidly at random which reportedly catch the boys In the first photographs ever taken of unit members In their natural haunts. Artists Gene Mix, Bob Johnson, and Dave Reed will decorate the pages with their aesthetic efforts, including cartoons whipped up during lighter moments. Short biographies of the student careers of the graduating members of the unit will be printed, as well as the history of the unit itself. As Crawford stated, “It will be on the order of El Rodeo, but on a smaller scale, since it will contain 64 pages.” Featured in the Seahorse will be the unit beauty queen, who is to be selected from photographs submitted by unit members and judged by the Seahorse staff.
