Old No. 32329 was found among a group of planes sitting out on a flying field near Ontario. The plpne that was manufactured during the recent war at a cost of approximately $110,000, was sold to the College of Engineering for a mere $150. It cost $200 to tow the wreck to the campus. The worn-out warbird was purchased for laboratory research work connected with “aeronautical sequences in mechanical engineering,” in the words of Professor Duncan. Only seniors in fhe College of Engineering will be permitted to work on the project. The college will use the plane for about two years then it will be sent to the junk yard.

Ghyka Traces Uses of Jade Prince Matila Ghyka yesterday traced the outline of early Chinese philosophy, linking it materialistically and idealistically with the ancient orient art before a large philosophy forum audience in Bowne hall. The visiting professor in the university’s School of Philosophy punctuated his lecture with a display of pieces of jade from his own private collection. Professor Ghyk? stressed the importance of early Chinese art. telling the forum >udience that the oriental, even u^.ay, places a high respect for ancient art that uses jade as its paramount feature. HIGHEST ART Lecturing on the “Chinese Art Cycle,’’ Prince Ghyka pointed out that jade has been used for thousands of years in Chinese rituals. “It is the highest type of art the orient knows,” he said. He verbally stomped out a common theory that jade comes from China when he told the forum that the gem is secured from Burma or Khotan in Chinese Turkestan. 3700 YEARS AGO Prince Ghyka, in discussing the steps of Chinese art and jade, explained that jade wasn’t used in art until the Shang dynasty, 1800-1300 B.C. "Since then,” he said, “jade has been the precious stone of China.” Yesterday’s lecture was the fifth in a series of six on the philosophy forum program. Prince Ghyka will explain Chinese art again next Tuesday afternoon in the last lecture of the series. Boycott Poland-Spain Friction, Iranian Controversy Still Cloud Issues NEW YORK, Apr. 9—(UP).— Russia ended its historic boycott of the United Nations Security Council today at a meeting which started as a love feast and ended with the threat of a grave new crisis when Iran demanded that its dispute with Russia remain on the Council program. A second crisis remained in the background—Poland’s demand that all members of the U N break relations with Franco Spain. Iran's letter, sensational in its complete unexpectedness, was a retort to Russia's demand that the council erase the whole Russo-Iranian question from its program immediately. IRAN’S POSITION Hussein Ala, Iranian representative, wrote Undersecretary General Trygve Lie that his government's position was unchanged. On the basis of fresh instructions from Tehran, Ala added: “It is the desire of my government that the matters referred by Iran to the Security Council remain on its agenda as provided by the resolution adopted April, 1946.” News of Iran's letter reached the Council Chamber just before an adjournment subject to the call of Lie —probably Monday after delegates have had time to work out strategy and tactics for another crisis stage (Continued on Page 4) BARBARA HUDSON . , .

Biggs Anderson Comedy Opens Tomorrow “High Tor,” opens tomorrow night in Bovard auditorium, and tickets for the Meblin-directed, Anderson-authorized comedy are now on sale in the Student Union ticket office for 50 cents. Holders of activity cards will be admitted free. Maxwell Anderson, an expert at serious themes, has proved himself in “High Tor” ,to be a mas- nse arm. 1 three servioes are under a :dential “gag" to prevent a re-,ion of the hot inter-service s touched off by the initial er proposals last year. Day n-American nee Scheduled st minute plans for the Pan-rican day dance to be held here rday evening, will take shape ■sday afternoon, when the Pan-rican league meets in 418 Stu-Union at 3:15. Dr. Lloyd-Jones Is also the chairman of the department of student personnel administration and director of the guidance laboratory at Teachers college. She is the author of numerous books and received her A.B. at Northwestern and her A.M. and Ph.D. at Columbia. Dr. Lloyd-Jones is in California for meetings of the council of guidance and personnel associations, at UCLA and at Mills college. Because of limited serving facilities, only those on the permanent reservation list may be accommodated for lunch. However, all other faculty members are welcome to come at 12:30 to hear the speaker. Music School Plans Recital The school of Music will agaii? sponsor an afternoon recital tomorrow at 2:15 in Bowne hall. Under the supervision of Dr. Max Van Lewen Swarthout, director of the School of Music, the program will be presented by students in the school. Compositions by both composers of classical and popular music will be heard in this recital. The program will include Mozar.t’s Sonata in B flat major, Jules (Jackson) Haywood, pianist; Handel’s “Oh Sleep, Why Dost Thou Leave Me,” a*nd DeBussy’s “Mandoline,” Robert Carver, vocalist, Louis Malone, accompanist; Puccini’s “Vissi D’-Arte,” Claire Kaplan, vocalist, Louis Malone, accompanist. Chen to Speak On Buck Novel Talks with Dr. James Yen concerning the mass education movement in China, as reported by Pearl S. Buck, famous author, in her most recent book “Tell the People,” will be interpreted by Dr. Theodore Hsi-en Chen, professor of education and Asiatic studies this afternoon at 3:15 in Bowne hall. “Tell the People” involves a series of conversations between the author and Jimmy Yen, founder of the mass education movement in China. Dr. Yen’s story is punctuated here and there by questions and remarks directed to him by Miss Buck and illuminated by her own analysis and understanding of plain people. The purpose of the mass education movement is to teach illiterate people in China to read, write, and live intelligently. So successfully is the move in China, according to Dr. Chen, that it is being adopted in Cuba and interest in it is growing rapidly in Mexico. According to the Jacket on the book, two-thirds of the world’s people are illiterate, ill clad, underfed, and at the mercy of disease. China’s mass education movement is a plan, tested for 25 years, to transform these millions in one generation. In view of the fact that Dr. Yen visited the Trojan campus a few months ago and spoke to an audience of students and faculty members, the review of this book is of particular interest.

Williams, accused of the murder of a beautiful ex-chorine, Ruth McGregor, languished in a mythical jail cell yesterday, Wallace Wolfe and William Duce, counsel for the defense, charged that the state’s attorneys were attempting to sensationalize the forthcoming ■ trial in an attempt to further their selfish ambitions for higher government offices. “We are convinced,” Duce said, “that Merlin Young and Henry Shatford, the state’s attorneys who are prosecuting this case, are motivated by their selfish ambitions for higher government offices in bringing out the salacious aspects of the evidence.” BRANDED MOCKERY “The whole trial is a mockery,” Wolfe added with some feeling. “They hope to use the consequent publicity to favor Shatford’s present campaign for the governorship of this great state.” Henry Shatford declined to comment on the charges when questioned by reporters. His only remark was that his sole ambition was to see justice done. BODY DISCOVERED Police officers of the homicide bureau discovered the body of Miss McGregor, alias Mrs. Anderson, after they had received an anonymous phone call “tipping” them to the fact that a murder had been committed in the exclusive apartment house,' the Rossmore Arms. The body of the beautiful woman, sprawled awkwardly on the bedroom floor, was discovered stiffening in the first stages l of rifor mortis. An autopsy surgeon determin- ed the cause of death as mal-toxin, and established the time of death at approximately 9 p. m. BLACKMAIL SUSPECTED Williams, president of the Ridgeway Engineering company and successful busi-• nessman, was first linked with the crime when a receipt for $5,000—made out in his favor—was discovered in the room with the body. Police suspected blackmail as a motive for the murder. An information was filed against him, and after his arrest Miss McGregor’s personal maid identified him as the man she had admitted in the apartment to see.the deceased at 7 p. m. of the evening of the murder. ALIAS USED The maid insists that she left Williams and Miss McGregor alone in the apartment shortly thereafter. Encouraged by finding the receipt, homicide investigators examined the registration records of the apartment house and found that Williams had leased the apartment in which Miss McGregor was residing at the time of her death, under the name of Mr. and Mrs. Anderson. WIFE UNSUSPECTING Mrs. Williiams, when interviewed, said that she had never had any reason to suspect her husband of infidelity. The family, on the contrary, has always been very closely united, according to her. Such are the facts of the case against Arthur J. Williams, and when the mock trial starts tonight at 7 in the Law auditorium, a jury of first-year-law-student peers will decide his fate. — - - ter of comedy. The fun starts when trap-rock mining engineers invade the mountain dwelling High Tor whi-ti overlooks the Hudson river. Van Van Dorn, a lover of the simple life, wants to keep the ground and doesn't intend to have it sold and ripped open for ore. He fights all the opposition the trap-rock company and his girl-friend Judith, played by Barbara Hudson, can bring against him. With the help of flintlock pistol totin’ De Witt, Charles Newman, he almost wins out. VAN SWITCHES When Judith goes over to the enemy, Van turns to his dreamlike girl-friend Lise, Barbara Lynde, who, though affectionate at times, is still in love with a memory from the 17th century. Obviously in a losing battle, Van Dorn decides to sell, but before he turns the deed over to trap-rockers Biggs and Skimmerhorn Jr., Bill Chapman and William Kitchen, he makes them promise ,to leave grave apace for dying Indian Bob Rirena and himself. NEW STAR Introduced to SC lovers of the drama for the first time in the leading role of Judith will be Barbara Hudson. Miss Hudson, member of Gamma Phi B>ta and the speech fraternity Pi Kappa Delta, received her B.A. degree in drama from the University of Iowa where she appeared as Rosalind in Shakespeare's “As You Like It” and as Helen in the world premiere of James Hilton’s “Lost Horizon.” While an undergraduate, she entered a Women’s National Oratory contest and chose “THe Socratic Method in Politics” as her topic. “Even with that handicap,” she states, “I came in second. First went to a girl who talked on marriage, a subject which was slightly more popular at that time for some reason.” DIRECTOR AT SOUTH GATE After graduation she set aside acting to write and produce a one-year series of commercial radio programs for an Iowa network. Her contract fulfilled there, she left for California and became director of drama at South Gate High school. Shortly after the play ended "Miss” Hudson became “Marine Lieutenant” Hudson and served 16 months in that capacity. Trovets Announce First Open Forum Borders, Gaffey Set Pace on Discussion Question ‘Should the OPA Be Continued?’ The doors of 302 Law building will be open to all members of the student body and instructional staff tomorrow afternoon at 3:15 when Trovets presents its first fooim of the present semester. Topic of the forum will be “Should the OPA be Continued,” and two prominent southern Cali- Bacon to Address Meeting of YMCA SC's former counselor of men, Francis M. Bacon, will speak before a gathering of the campus chapter of the YMCA in 318 Student Union from 7 to 8 tonight. Dr. Bacon joined the SC faculty in 1928 as lecturer in education and counseler of men. He has been actively engaged in social work since he came ,to California in 1919. Dr. Carl Hancey, present dean of men, took over his duties when Dr. Bacon retired to private life in July, 1945. According to Clarence Parker, vice-president of the campus chapter of the "YMCA, many interesting activities are scheduled for that organization and will be discussed at this meeting. All men students are invited to attend. fomians, Erwin Borders, Los Angeles chamber of commerce, and John Gaffey, district price economist for the OPA are slated to take the negative and affirmative respectively. After each speaker has delivered his views, discussion will be open from the floor. EVERYONE INVITED “Admission has been thrown open to everyone,” stated Bob Wood-worth, Trovet forum committee chairman, “because we feel that this topic is of great importance to everyone regardless of whether they are veterans or not. “The OPA and the current threat of inflation, however, should be of much concern to the student veteran,” he said, “for if the price line is not hel<T he will be among the first to suffer. Inflation does not greatly harm those who have fluid incomes but it can easily render the $65 or $90 a month of the G. I. student worthless.” MERITS OF SPEAKERS Borders, a graduate of Missouri university and a well-known radio speaker, writer, and advertiser, has long been an implacable opponent of price control. In his several appearances on KFI's weekly feature, “The American Way,’’ he has steadfastly maintained that price control is contrary to the ideal of Democracy and is crippling American industry. Gaffey, who has an extensive background in price control, is expected to strongly defend the organization to which he has given such stellar service. FORUM SERIES “Trovets has planned this forum as the beginning of a series of discussions on controversial matters of immediate importance to veterans,” Woodworth revealed. “Special invitations have been mailed to the heads of departments and their staffs,” Woodworth said, “to further associate veterans with the instruction staff.” He also emphasized that this forum is part of Trovets long range program to stimulate veterans’ interest in current affairs and to contribute to iheir education Aero Students Get Organized Student body activities in the College of Aeronautics at Santa Maria, newest addition to the university, came of age this week with the student’s organization as a student body and their election of officers. Elected president was Donald MacDonald, New York city, who enrolled in pae-engineering last November. MacDonald was a bomber pilot during the war and spent a year as a P.O.W. in Germany. Another veteran, Dale Jay Saunders, Detroit, has assumed the post of vice-president of the group. Saunders entered pre-engineering last February. SIMMONS ELECTED Carroll A. Simmons, Los Angeles, former army engineer, who enrolled in aeronautical engineering last February was selected secretary of the student body. The single woman of the group, Ruth De Longe, Beverly Hills, at Santa Maria seeking a commercial pilot's ticket, will be treasurer. The final office of organization committee chairman went to AAF veteran Frank G. Alexander, Newcastle, Pa., who is after CAA aircraft and engine mechanic and commercial pilot licenses at the air college. NEW PLANS The student body, with these new officers at the helm, is drawing up a constitution and by laws patterned after those of the university and plans soon to inaugurate a series of social and scholastic events. Trojanality man Ballot Revenue To Swell Fund SC ‘Superboys’ Vie For Top Spot in Local ‘Male Queen’ Contest “Every penny cast in poll-tax voting for the Trojanality man. means a penny more to be donated to the World Student Service fund.” Blue Key president Phil Burton, said today. The Amazons, who are conducting the race, say that the governing factors in the election will be the man with the most glowing personality, the greatest amount of reknown, the best talent, and best political achievements. WOMEN CHOSE IDEALS After each sorority and women's dorm selected one man whom they thought as the most ideal creature, they submitted the name. The Amazons then waded through the growing list of names and cut the field to six “ideals.” These are th3 six men who will enter the racing polls in the gruelling contest: Don Blank, Stray Greek; Bob Brekke, Sigma Chi; Chuck Franklin. Kappa Sig; Terry Nelson, SAE; Al Spaeter, Sigma Chi, and Jim Walker. Phi Psi. This election will be of special interest to those students who delight in generally messing up elections by writing in names andstuf-fing the ballot box. Balloting will be conducted on the basis of votes paid for at the rate of one penny per. This will make stuffing the ballot box very easy and very much in the limelight. There is no limit as to the number of votes that may be cast forany contestant. This is a race of backers. The candidate with the most “monied” friends stands the best chance to become the winning man of the evening. POLLING AT DANCE The polls will open at 8 pjn., at the beginning of the dance and continue until 10:30 that evening when the final results will be announced. The results of the voting will be announced at different times throughout the dance, which should make excitement and enthusiasm mount as the evening goes along. FDR Planned Japan Threat WASHINGTON, Apr. 9.—(UP)— The congressional Pearl Harbor inquiry learned today that President Roosevelt planned a Dec. 9, 1941, warning to Japan to halt further Asiatic aggression, but was beaten to the punch two days by the sneak attack on Hawaii. NEW FACTS Seeking new facts surrounding the December 7 disaster, the committee failed, however, to discover what moves Mr. Roosevelt took on the eve of Pearl Harbor when he concluded that Japan’s final message to her peace negotiators her* on that date '■means war.” Nor were the members able filially to pin down, after months oI searching, the whereabouts of Admiral Harold R. Stark, then chief of naval operations, and Gen. George C. Marshall. 1941 chief ol staff, on the mgnt of Dec. 8. Special Knights . . . will meet today at 4 p.m., in 401 Student Union.
