Mayor Fletcher Bowron accepted the bomber on behalf of the city from pilot Kurtz who flew the plane from Arizona to take part in the ceremonies. Also on hand to take part Ghyka Plans Jade Lecture Pieces of jade from his own collection will be used by Dr. Matila Ghyka, visiting professor in the school of philosophy, this afternoon in illustrating his second lecture on the “Chinese Art Cycle” series, in Bowne hall at 4:15 p.m. “Early playing an important part in Chinese religious and court ceremonies, jade later tok its place in more ornamental settings,” Dr. Ghyka said yesterday. The first historic dynasty, Shang Yen, 1800-1300 B.C., used jade in rituals, and it has been found up to the Chinese revolution in the 19th century in all religious and court ceremonies, Dr. Ghyka continued. JADE NOT CHINESE Contrary to the opinion of many, jade is not found in China, but is DX Doors Open o Four Journalists Letters of invitation to join the ranks of SC’s underrate chapter of Sigma Delta Chi, national professional ;mity for men in journalism, were sent yesterday to Don iall, Jim Hagerty, Erwin Newton, and Dick Thomason, *r division students in the School of Journalism. ia Delta Chi pledge honors ----— Officers Elected For New Posts By Pledge Heads bestowed upon the four in rec-tkrn of their interest and ability jumalism as exhibited by their on the Daily Trojan and in journalistic fields. i Goodall, associate editor of T. and editonal writer, has as both copyreader and re- | Officers for the Interfratemity tr on the Trojan, working last Pledge Presidents council were as a desk editor.

It is taken from the earth in rough stone form, and with much effort is polished to a high luster, bringing out its prized beauty. Counterfeits are commonly found made from soapstone. Ruby polish is used to hand polish the jade to its high luster. Apart from its ritual use is its ornamental value. Chosen for its weight, hardness, beauty, and touch, jade has its moral characteristics. Certain pieces denote purity, strength, and permanence. Rings, bracelets, necklaces, beads,* and all types of jewelry are found adorned with these rare stones. “At the present time,” Dr. Ghyka said, “the state seal of the Chung- iwas - was another former Trojan, Lt. Gen. Ira Eaker, deputy commander of the army air forces. Of 35 Flying Fortresses stationed at Clark field in the Philippines with the 19th bombardment group when the Japs attacked Dec. 8, the Swoose was the only plane to return to the United States. During the year in combat that followed Pearl Harbor the plane became a patch 'work of more spare parts than original Fortress and as a result was named Swoose after the famous Walt Disney character. BOOK TELLS EXPERIENCES Experience of Kurtz, the Swoose, and her crew, were told in William L. White’s best selling book, “Queens Die Proudly/' written shortly after Kurtz returned to the States in 1942, ferrying home Lt. Gen. George Brett, commander of the far eastern air force. In February, 1943, Colonel Kurtz’s wife, Mrs. Margo Kurtz, also an SC graduate, christened a second Swoose which Kurtz flew in the Mediterranean theatre as commander of a heavy bombardment group. After flying 60 bombing missions in Europe, Kurtz returned to the States and assumbed command of an airfield in Kirtland, Ariz. Part of his European experiences were described in Mrs. Kurtz’s recent book. “My Rival the Sky.” Flying the original Swoose home from the Pacific, Kurtz set a new transpacific flight record. Long before war broke out. Kurtz internationally famous as a king government is made of jade.” COLOR VARIES Discussing jade in a general way, Dr. Ghj’ka said that the colors may be as myriad as those of the rainbow. Red is very rare, but one finds yellow, green, lavender, brown, and gradations from white to black. The Chinese have named every shade, some having such fantastic names as “chicken bone" and “mutton fat.” They have gradually introduced thousands of metaphors concerning jade into their language. The faculty, students, and their friends are invited to the lecture and the opportunity of viewing some of Dr. Ghyka’s jade pieces from his collection. Knight Cabinet . . . will meet today at 12:15 p.m. in the Trojan Knight office. Committee heads for the all-U dance also must be presented.

He was national high diving champion in 1933, a member of three Trojan Pacific coast championship swimming teams, 1934-1936, and was selected for the 1940 Olympics at Helsinki, Finland, that were called off because of the war. In 1934 he flew a 10,000 mile good will tour carrying documents between President Roosevelt and President Cardenas of Mexico. SET SPEED RECORDS At SC Kurtz majored in commercial aviation, was a member of Sigma Chi fraternity and Blue Key, and in addition to his high-diving feats set several land plane speed records. Graduated by Troy in 1937 with a B.S. degree, Kurtz entered the army flying school at Randolph Field, Texas, won his wings as a bomber pilot, and was sent to the Philippines in Aug., 1941, with the much-decorated 19th bombardment group. His wife, the former Margo Rogers, was a member of Kappa Alpha Theta sorority, graduating from SC in 1937. In addition to his campaign ribbons, Colonel Kurtz wears the Silver Star with two clusters, the Distinguished Flying Cross, also with two clusters, several presidential citations and the air medal with several clusters. Vinson Urges End of Draft WASHINGTON. Apr. 8 — (U.E) — Chairman Carl Vinson, D , Ga., of the House Naval Affairs committee today introduced a bill to suspend the draft for six months in favor of a high-pay recruiting drive, despite Gen. Dwight E. Eisenhower’s stern warning that anti-conscription legislators were “gambling” with the national security. His bill proposes that the status of conscription be frozen from May 15 to Nov. 15, during which time the armed forces would conduct an intensive recruiting drive to bring in volunteers to pay rates averaging 30 to 100 per cent over the present scales. “If, by the* end of that period, the required number of enlisted personnel have not been obtained,” Vinson told the House, the bill provides that the President shall declare that a national emergency exists, and shall invoke the draft for one year until Nov. 15, 1947. Von KleinSmid Cancels Trip To East Coast President Rufus B. von Klein-Smid’s trip to the east has been canceleld temporarily due to the death of Dr. Raphael Herman, member of the Board of Trustees. Dr. von KleinSmid will fly to Washington, D. C., and New York on university business as soon as another reservation ii available.

A research project just completed is testing of various native west American species of cypress trees for resistance to the cypress canker (disease) which is killing the Monterey cypress (including the one back of the Student Union on the campus). The Monterey cypress has been much used in California both as an ornamental and for wind breaks, but the cypress canker seems to have doomed it outside its native groves in the vicinity of Monterey.

Zabriskie, president of the botany club, for transportation arrangements.
