Hits New High Students safely past the registration ru?.h and confusion are now textbook orders, and is work-cor,fronted with an equally tedious jng niUCh more efficiently task—that of trying to find a place than the former crowd-in method.” Crowd-in Plan Slows Textbook Distribution; Full Stocks Expected “The degree of cooperation exhibited in the student body by staying in formed lines for service in the Student Union Bookstore is very much appreciated,'’ stated Dan McNamara, manager. “This is saving considerable time in filling to park within hiking distance of the campus. No new problem to the old students here on campus, the parking situation, with hundreds of new cars flooding the university’s avenues as ! a result of the record registration, has taken an alarming turn for the worse. Lots were overflowing by 9 a.m. and students returning to their cars at noon found that late comers had literally taken over every available Inch and had blocked traffic in the whole lot. One irate driver came out to find two win-downs broken in his automobile by s-ameone attempting to move his car and he claims that he has learned his lesson and will park elsewhere from now on. Students are requested not to come back to the Bookstore each day to see if sold-out texts have j come in. ‘ When large orders of textbooks arrive, we will notify the professor,” said McNamara. “Other- ' wise, students coming back day after day for the same text enlarge the : line and impair the efficient service we are trying to give the student body.’’ The inventory of stock in the Student Union Bookstore is lower at the present time than ever before in SC’s histcry. However, a steady stream of books lias finally begun to arrive, according to McNamara. and orders are rapidly being filled. Publishers have found it difficult to replenish their war-depleted stocks, due to paper, machinery', and labor shortages. “The main factor causing the textbook shortage.” McNamara emphasized, “is the un- i precedented large enrollment in all * colleges and universities throughout the country. When publishers once catch up with the overflowing student bodies, the textbook situation will once again be normal." McNamara expressed optimism in a quick “clearing up of the situation.” Future Scribes Asked to Attend Meeting Today The entire staff of the Daily Trojan will meet today at 2:15 p.m. in the Senate Chambers, fourth floor Student Union. It is compulsory for all School of Journalism students registered in journalism 52ab (reporting) and journalism 103ab (copyreading) to attend. “It is vital that every person who will work on the Trojan this term attend this meeting,” stated Bill Griffith, D.T. editor. “It will begin promptly at 2:15 and we’ll make it as short as possible.” Roll call will be taken and absences counted against D.T. laboratory work.

March 4—(U.F>— Iranian Ambassador Hussein Ala today asked the United States to protest retention of Russian troops in Iranian territory beyond the March 2 deadline and was told that this government would be willing to do i so on two conditions. He listed the conditions as: 1—Assurance that Premier Ahmad Ghavam during his visit to Moscow-did not agTee to extend the deadline fixed in the Anglo-Soviet-Iranian agreement. Assurances that the Iranian government itself would make representations to the Russians. The envoy said after an early morning conference with Secretary of State James F. Byrnes that he understood the state department also wanted to know whether the Iranian government would appeal to the United Nations. Emphasizing that he was acting on his own Initiative, he said he could not answer these questions for lack of information, but that he was confident Ghavam would not agree to an extension of the deadline. Michael J. McDermott, special assistant to Byrnes, later told a press conference that the United States was watching developments closely but that no action has been taken "because we don’t know yet the attitude of the Iranian government.” He said the British have ke^rt this government informed of what they (Continued on Page 8) Two distinguished scholars, one American and the other Chinese, will be honored at a reception and tea next Monday afternoon at 3:30 in the president’s suite of the Administration building, according to Dean Emory S.

Mar. 4 — (U.R) — Ranchers in and about the small community of Haines, eastern Oregon, an? girding to repell an invasion of four-legged critters. The rapid reproduction of elk and the damage they are causing annually to the grazing lands of eastern Oregon is a major cause of concern to residents of this area and they are setting out to do something about it. Before a meeting of the Oregon Game commission, which Gov. Earl Snell attended Ed Johnson, Haines farmer, asserted that if measures to stem the growing tide of elk were not taken soon, the animals would have control of the right-of-way to all streets in Haines. In warding off encroachment ranchers found it contrary to law to shoot the critters. So they are asking for a program of localized, scientific game management. If this doesn’t help, an elk probably will be next mayor of Haines. Drama Group Schedules Tryouts Tryouts for the drama department’s forthcoming production, Maxwell Anderson’s “High Tor" will be held Wednesday and Thursday from 3:30 to 5 p.m. in Touchstone theatre, 119 Old College, according to an announcement from the drama department. Frieda J. Meblin of the drama department will direct the production which is scheduled to be the first play of the spring term. Miss Meblin emphasized .that all students are eligible for roles regardless of whether they are drama majors. Prof Selected By Britannica Prof. Raymond C. Osbum, research associate with the Allan Hancock foundation, has contributed material to the torthcoming revision of the Encyclopedia Britannica it was announced yesterday. Included among Professor Os-burn’s contributions is an explanation of the term “Kamptozoa” which is a relatively new word used by zoologists in ,the classification of a subdivision of Bryozoa, a form of marine animal life. Forty years of work in examining and identifying marine specimens have put Professor Osburn among the leaders in his field of study. It was for this reason that he was selected by the publishers of the encyclopedia to write up the information on the new classification. During his many years of study and research. Professor Osburn has examined nearly all the available marine specimens dredged up from the oceans of the Gulf, east coast and arctic regions. He has been engaied in the past year in examining and classifying marine life dredged up from the Pacific from Oregon to South America by the Hancock foundation's field workers. These studies have a special economic significance, the scientist points out, because bryozoa are destructive to oyster beds and, like barnacles, impede the speed of ships by heavy encrustation. In some cases. Professor Osbum adds, bryozoa have become so thick on floating mines and marker buoys as to cause them to sink. Former head of the zoology department at Ohio State university. Professor Osburn now holds the position of professor emeritus of zoology at that institution. Squires . . . are requested to wear Squires sweaters all week. A regular meeting will be held in 418 Student Union Thursday at 12:30 p.m. according to an announcement by Dick Henning. Counsel Service Continues Page four- Final Schedule Changes, Revisions Listed as Troy Swings Into Second Day of Term Registration Nears Finish; Lines Shorten Signups Moved to 207 Physical Education, Administration; Fees Charged to Latecomers Never-ending queues of Trojans registering last week havt diminished from the mile-long variety to comparatively short lines in the Physical Education and Administration building*. Registration takes place today in Physical Education 207, where supplies such as Books 1 and 2 and section cards may be obtained. Verification of programs will be given in the same room. After today, all registration procedures will be carried on in the Administration building only, according to Howard W. Patmore, registrar. A late registration fee of $3 is charged for all students who have not yet completed their programs. Payments may be made in the Business office, formerly the Comptroller’s office, 152 Administration. The fee will be raised to 55 on Monday, Mar. 11. Set up as an aid in helping new students solve any orientation problems, the Trojan Knight counseling service will continue answering questions and issuing student handbooks throughout Friday. Conveniently located in front of Student Union from 10 to 3 p.m. each day through Friday, the con-seling table offers aid to any students having trouble locating classrooms or desiring help on other problems about SC. Oakie King, under whose direction the service is functioning, says that the handbooks, a virtual bible of SC, are going fast, but that any questions about social or scholastic phases of campus life will be answered by the Knights. One of the most valuable aids to incoming students, the pocket-sized red handbook covers a wide variety of subjects. A handy map of the campus, athletic results, in- formation about campus organizations. listings ol university officers, and fraternity and sorority addresses are only a few of the numerous articles featured in the book. The all-university assembly scheduled for tomorrow has been cancelled until next week because classes are being held in Bovard auditorium at the planned hour. Chuck Franklin, director of the orientation schedule, announced that the assembly will be held sometime next week. Norm Hawes, handling the arrangements for the all-university dance planned for this Friday, stated that in view of the tremendous enrollment of new students, the dance has been postponed until larger accommodations can be found. Originally slated for the Student Union lounge, attempts are underway to secure the Shrine auditorium for the dance. It will be held as soon as final arrangements can be made. Knights and Squires will continue to wear their sweaters and will answer any question about the university or campus functions. Another interesting feature in the handbook is the section containing a brief story about the history of SC and the many traditions that are observed each year. The school motto, how SC became known as the Trojans, and Tommy Trojan’s history may also be found in the bible. Commenting on the counseling service, Joe Holt, Knight president, stated that “it is hoped all new Trojans will take advantage of this chance to really learn about SC and its many services to students, and it is with this service ip mind that we believe the Knights can De of the most benefit during the opening days of school-” Cacophonous Dress Urged For Arts Ball Program changes may be made until Mar. 1L at which time a 32 fee will be charged. “Without the help of many students and faculty members whs assisted during registration, we never would have been able to get through." Mr. Patmore said. He expressed his gratitude for the cooperation of the scholarship students, Knights, Squires. Blue Key. Trovets, Amazons, Phrateres. as well as the many faculty members and university employees. As an indication of the skyrocketed enrollment, Mr. Patmore told of 120 freshman English classes offered this term, in comparison to "5 scheduled In November. “The increase is about the same hi all freshman classes,” he stated. Increased enrollment, bringing SC's total population to an unprecedented 12.000 students, is largely dt*# to the influx of veterans.
