PEN WARFARE THREAT OF CAMPAIGNS RITCHARDlN RACE ‘TO BEAT’ SMITH; CLEANGOVERNMENT irges Hurled at Political Meetings; Baxter Denies Affiliation with ‘Machine/ Says He'll Throw Stink Bombs as Next Move The rival Jack Smith and Larry Pritchard campaign! for resident threaten to resort to open warfare became more imminent today with the hurling of further charges by the man- ners. Pritchard, in a fiery speech last night, declared that he was AMSEY RUNS AM OFFICE FOR PHI MUS *going into the campaign solely for the purpose of cleaning up politics, and "ousting the machine.*’ Rill Baxter, in the audience of the meeting which was held in Exposition park, rose and heckled Pritchard. *‘We are not under the hand6 of the machine,” he shouted. “We’ve been deserted. For two weeks we’ve been trying to get our split and they haven’t come through yet. “If you so much as intimidate that we’re under the control of the machine we’ll throw stink bombs at all your meetings.” Pritchard continued with his speech, which was attended by 5,000 newsboys. “Our government is corrupt, dirty, and foul. The Mohler administration is the sorriest thing that ever graced the fair name of S. C. Something must be done and Pm going to do It.” Pritchard Beemirched Opponents of Pritchard pointed out that his life was far from being above reproach. Most of his livelihood since coming to college has been gained from padding traveling expenses on debate trips. A garage full of cars testifies to that. Returning from the recent trip to Seattle this spring he at once planned hi6 campaign, but observers said he was able to do this only because he profited nefariously from the trip.

It won for him hundreds of votes whose owners disliked seeing Smith handed the presidency on a silver platter in case Pritchard stayed out of the race. Smith Urged Pritchard Smith on the other hand, has been charged with inducing Pritchard to run in order to stir up interest in the Beach day on election day, solely because Al Garrett, Smith cohort, is chairman of the beach program. There is probabilities of a three-way split of the profits there, with Pritchard com Throwing a huge monkey-wrench into the smooth running cogs of the machine of the College of Dentistry of the University of Southern California, a reform committee composed of Bailey Edger-tain, Stanley Norton, Edward Halvorsen, and Harry Craven last night turned over to the Yellow Dog staff a complete report on the monster that has held the molar-yankers for three years. The report reveals why Orv Mohler received 364 votes while Bob Boyle was able to garner only 38 ballots in election last year, and why smiling Fran Bushard took the college in a clean sweep two years ago. New Patron Saint Dental students today hailed the fearless committee as the Napoleon, St. Patrick, Mussolini, and Hitler of the college. “Too much credit cannot be given to the investigating group,” Dr. Cony Glazier, crown and bridge specialist, remarked last night when approached by a cub *Old Man of The Mountain’ ing in for his share.

ONLY would divvy on the beach day proceeds will be figured out later, according to wiseacres. Pritchard also threatened to expose Smith’s underhanded tactics in attempting to buy off prospective candidates. Courage To Run “I am running because I had the courage to stay in the race,” Pritchard declared yesterday. “Love, Johnson, and Bernard may have gotten cold feet, but I’m in here to fight for good, clean government.” Meanwhile Elections Commissioner Francis Cislini was running himself ragged checking up on campaign expenses. The devious methods by which Pritchard disguises his purchases of cigars had Cislini nonplussed, but he solved it by watching him gathering up snipes. Smith, he stated, was another problem, because he received so many gifts that he was able to stage a party at the Ambassador .last week, followed by an airplane tour to Agua Caliente, with a total expenditure of 19 cents. Meeting Tomorrow Pritchard stated last night that he would have his next meeting tomorrow night at the S.A.E. house, when he would attempt to pull the wool over the eyes of more supporters. “I've got to Smith.” he said, must be kept clean.” “The charge is rediculous.” was Smith's answer. Any statement that my politics are dirty are absurd, and with Pritchard saying it, it's like the kettle calling the pot black” While so much verbal barrage was being laid down, the student body went calmly ahead with its term papers. HOW TO CUT DEFICIT TOLD BY GAMMY EP How many of you knew that Marx has been attending S.C. under the alias of John Morley? Because of his extraordinary ability this perennial Sigma Alpha Epsilon is spending his fifth year on a three-year course. Harpo expects to draw a pension from the A.W. S. by the time he graduates for guiding its officers over a longer period of years than any Sigma Chi that ever blemished the halls of Troy. xmnj What’s the matter with the old Pi K.A.'s? Good old Pikers, haven’t , heard anything really bad about I them in a long time. Maybe the new barn they now reside in has had its effect or are they getting big time and know how to get along quietly like some of their .older rival houses? the fact that these men are inspired by no other goal than to improve the reputation of their dear Alma Mater and to satisfy their beloved faculty.” Report Prevented The report follows in full: “The unscrupulous dental political machine was conceived and engineered by Wendell Hall, Henry Pemberthy and Virgil Brown and has been going ahead under full steam for the past two years. We had hoped that with the graduation of this trio the machine would auto-maically blow up. However, these men had the foresight to have under-studies that are better trained and more capable to carry on the perfidious work of their superiors. After a great amount of diligent investigation we have uncovered Barney Faubian, Galen Shaver, and Fred Ayres ‘destined to carry on along those lines.’" Non Partisan This invesigation has been carried on in a straight-forward manner regardless of consequences. We have found that this organization of politicians has intimidated and bought candidates from competing against the choices of these political robots in elections. Furthermore these robots are not above miscounting votes and dealing out gravy jobs. We therefore beat this guy, believe that if the controlling in-Our politics ' terests of Dean Ford are to be protected in this college this menace must be stamped out immediately. (Signed) Neo Halverson Penthouse Norton Apple Edgerton Scarry Craven. Note: This committee has not ceased to work with the publishing of this report. Only last Thursday Apple Edgerton carried the war against politics to the rest of the campus. He revealed at the election of Squires that all Dental college was involved in dirty underhanded politics, except of course his fraternity brothers. Therefore in view of fairness to Dental college all Squires should be chosen from his house. PUBLICATIONS DANCE ROARS WITH GAIETY Abandoned Night Club Could Hardly Contain Itself, Really Staggering to the discords of Jed Warner’s Columbiarecording (Dean Harrel, publicity agent) orchestra, 100 couples reveled Saturday night at the first (and probably only) publications brawl at the old Sugar Cane night club. faster of Ceremonies Mac “Snorky” Morgenthau waved his arms in time with the music to direct several old-fashioned dances, the most notable of which was a “Paul Jones” in which the gals and boys joined hands in separate circles and in opposite circles. When the music stopped, each man was supposed to dance with the girl in front of him, but the kiddies must have their fun. Lud Shonnard was discovered dancing with Christy “candidate” Fox. Betty ‘for secretary Jones” found herself in the arm of Watson Rose, McBride campaign manager. Emory West walked into the dance at 11 o’clock, explaining that it was too dark for him to find the door. In a floor show put on by members of the Daily Trojan staff, Editor Quentin “Little Man” Reger ended up on the bottom of the pile. The Phi Kappa Tau were lead by ex-prexy Alton Garrett in several short snappy harmony numbers (yes, Brother Fred Dodge was there). George Hoedinghaus spent the entire evening trying to keep up with “Scottie” MacKenzie, while Quentin Reger, (Kappa Alpha), cavorted about with his Delta Zeta date. Set Fire To House, Collect Insurance Says ‘One-cell’ With the depression causing the house managers of S. C. fraternities to pace the floor nights trying to figure out how to keep the house out of the red, it remained for the Gammy Eps (the perennial petitioners to Phi Delta Theta) to really set the pace in fraternity finance. Facing a deficiency of $700 in their house budget, with the house in a veritable state of collapse, and with their furniture standing on its last legs, the enterprising locals balanced their budget and came out several hundred dollars ahead by the simple method of setting their barn on fire. Wehner To Rescue So there could be no possible accusation of arson, the boys had Dick (One Cell) Wehner throw a burning Christmas tree on the roof. Wehner, the erstwhile house manager, has been declared insane on numerous occasions by noted alienists and consequently could not be held to account by any court in the country. Calmly eating their meal the men had all the appearances of a guiltless bunch when alarmed neighbors screamed in the door that the house was on flre. Having previously placed all the furniture where the firemen would be most likely to direct their streams of water, the brothers proceeded to march out. That is, all left hut “One Cell” who having realized what was happening, dashed upstairs to retrieve a second-place medal that he won in 1912 when only one other competitor showed up for a race. After the fire had subsided the Gammy Eps proceeded to call on an alumni lawyer who managed to squeeze the insurance company into a one-sided settlement. The boys now boast of a newly-painted house, a brand new interior, and a rapidly diminishing bankroll. If any fraternities are interested in a cheap fire they may interview Whener at the Gammy Ep house In the afternoons or by calling Exposition 2062 in the evenings. Latest Summary Of Campus Political Hot'bed Latest summary of the presidential race as compiled by U-Knighted Pressed experts: 1. Smith denies his men bought off or intimidated any other opponents than Johnson, Love, and Bernard. The Maxine Adams job was also someone else’s work, he said. 2. Pritchard declares he will clean up the machine. 3. Daily Trojan throws support to Acton. 4 Prof. Roy L French says he will run for president as a graduate student; will coerce Daily Trojan into supporting him. 5. Cislini charges he is being shadowed; Van Landingham says that’s because he’s in the spotlight. The Alpha Gams have been trying so hard to get into the Yelolw Dog that they were quite "Hotcha” at Balboa on the moonlit bay last week. Bautzer Hits Hotel In Full High Gear Then there is the story about the way Greg Bautzer barged into the Beverly-Wilshire one night last winter after a basketball game. A friend met him in the lobby and asked who won the game. Bautzer boomed right past him, but paused long enough to say, "Bautzer!” The K.A’s don’t seem to have much luck with their women, witness the fact that two of their really outsanding brothers were handed back their pins soon after they rented them out. They should take lessons from old maestro Sether. he may be only a pledge, but..... MOHLER SEEN ONS.C.CAMPUS Student Prexy Returns On Periodical Tour Of Inspection Orv Mohler came back to school today, paying his biennial visit to the campus. The student body president, who has not been in his office since Oct. 20, was looking well, observers said. His face is a little fuller, and his dress more immaculate, but he still has the same old Mohler grin, according to persons who saw him. Finiehe* Business Mohler spent most of yesterday morning in finishing up business he started last fall. In the afternoon he read the minutes of the legislative council and became informed of the political situation through the Daily Trojan. He said, however, that there was little he did not know, as he had always kept in constant touch with the campus thiough direct wire at his offices at Wrigley field and Catalina Island. “Often I spend the time ordinary baseball players spend in warming up in dictating letters to my secretary, Phyllis (Gabriel) Doran, who takes down what I say over the telephone,” Mohler stated. “I have found it quite unnecessary to go near the campus, except to inquire about Bernadine.” Stay* Aloof In au interview yesterday Mohler said that the student body president should keep himself aloof from common students. It is not proper that he, supposedly an impartial executive, should mingle in student affairs for fear people get the impression that he was trying to run things. That Orv has succeeded well in removing himself from the campus is beyond doubt the triumph of his administration. Only the Pacific ocean prevented him from remov* ing himself to China, where he carry on his presidential duties as well as at Catalina, he 3aid. SMITH, PRITCHARD SNUBBED BY REGER IN SURPRISE MOVE Daily Trojan Swings To Write-in Candidate as Sigma Chis Trade House for Support; Attendance at Dance Basis of Editor’s Bias “The Daily Trojan will throw all its support to Ralph Acton,” announced Editor Quentin Reger last night; “he wa* the only candidate to come to the Publications dance.” Acton, who is running on a write-in ticket, entered the field last week, making the campaign three-way. Hitting at charges from both the*'-Smith and Pritchard camps that the paper was biased in favor of Pritchard or Smith, Reger declared that the Trojan would support neither of them, but would sway the masses over to Ralph Acton. Just why Reger selected Acton to be the next student body president is not yet clear, beyond the fact that Acton attended Publications dance Saturday night, thereby currying the favor of the editor, but reports have it that if Acton is elected the Sigma Chis will sell their white elephant fraternity house to the K.A.’s for a song, provided Joe Bushard doesn’t 3ing it. Big House This would give the KA/s (common garden or southern variety) a house where all the members can get into at one time. Reger would have the bridal suite permanently. Content with the student body presidency for the flrst time in a decade, the Sigma Chis would overrun the K.A house on Adams. This would also give the Sigs exercise walking to school, a great benefit to the house because some of the athletes haven’t walked a block since they entered college. Acton said last night that hu headquarters were busy grinding out stories and ad copy about himself. “Neither Smith nor Pritchard will be able to make the front page after this. The motto of my campaigners is ‘action for Acton.’ My motto during this election ls ‘Acton for action.’ Watch us plaster the news columns with this catchy phrase.” Candidate* Confused Both Smith and Pritchard were nonplussed last night Smith hoped to get control of the Wampus through Bob Russell and fill it full of Smith publicity. Russell had been making silly-like speeches for him. Pritchard was beginning to count on El Rodeo, but opined that he should have thought of that four years ago so he could have had four issues to play him up. Johnny Morley, another SA.E. (late) thought he might be able to get him a section in the 1933 edition, but since It won’t be out until after elections it probably wouldn’t do Pritchard any good unless there was a re-call or something. Pritchard was praying for an earthquake when last seen yesterday. So confident was Reger of the tiger-like grip of his paper on the students that he was already ordering carpets for his Sig Chi suite. THIGMA NUTH THWIPE BOAT 0FS.C.C0EDTH Alpha Gamth Thuffer Lothth of Canoe At Balboa “Thoth the Thigmt Nuth ju&th wouldn’t leave our canoe alone down at Balboa,” Kitty Kleiber, popular young miss of Alpha Gamma Delta, has been telling all her friends on campus during the past week. When she was pressed for details by a Yellow Dog reporter, she declared that the trouble started when one of the S.N. pledges borrowed the boat to get to the Island late one night. He brought it back the next morning and loaned it to Page Parker and Jack Frankish. Paddling over to the Pi Beta Phi house on the island, the boy* spent the day taking the gals for trips around the bay, returning to the mainland late in the afternoon. They turned the canoe over to another pledge who took it beck to the Alpha Gams with a swell story of how he found it beached on the island and brought it back. The gals had already called up the harbor police and were quite worried. To add insult-to-injury, or some-thing-or-other, Kitty continued, along comes rother Frank Van Bua- serious ! klrk to loan the canoe t0 i Kappa Alpha Thetas a couple of days later. One of Roy Johnson’s fraternity brothers said that Roy (I’m Betty Jones’ campaign manager) admitted himself that he was the papa of the D. G. house. They’re brother and sister houses you know. Isn’t that too ducky. Margaret Thomas (the tall blonde) and Bill Fleetwood are terribly that'a way about each other. Lots of luck, you certainlly make a grand couple. Wonder if a certain Theta and Alpha Chi would have anything to do with their brawny boy i friends if they weren’t current football heroes? The latter co-ed, ' at least, didn’t even recognize her Romeo until he made his first j touchdown. Well, its Life boys, plain old Life (capital) Larry Pritchard may be a grand fellow and all o’ that, but he could use a little of the old “I’m run-Qing for office” smile. He is the other extreme and after all. the majority of the voters aren’t in on the know and want to see their candidate sometime besides in serious debate picture*.
