H., Sept. 24.— <U.R>—The army newspaper Stars and Stripes today quoted Adm. William F. Halsey as saying the war “ended too soon because there are too many Nips left.” The newspaper said Halsey told a small group of American prisoners of war: “If MacArthur is given his way and not interfered with by well-meaning—and otherwise—bureaucrats in America and/or elsewhere, Japan will never rise above a fifth or sixth place power.” Halsey was quoted as saying that neither the atomic bomb nor the Russian declaration of war nor any one service won the war. “We fought as a team. We couldn’t have won otherwise,” H^lsev said. The admiral said that after seeing the broken-down transportation, communications, and fi?4^ in Japan, “I am a little ashamed think it took us so long.” “I wonder why it took four years?” he asked. Frosh to give talent show v Local talent will be featured at an all-U assembly to be presented by the freshman class in the week just before stop week, Wednesday, Oct. 3. It is to be a musical program consisting of semi-classical and popular selections. The affair will be during the noon hour and everyone is encouraged to be there by Trudie O'Brien, freshman class president. “All Trojans should come and enjoy the show displaying the wares of their fellow students,” advises Miss O'Brien. On the program will be Ray Davis and his band, Jeff Gleason and his voice. Tommy Batton and his voice, a marine trio, Jack Frost, Jerry Green, and Gil Ferguson. As yet the master of ceremonies is undisclosed by the freshman class. Members of the assembly planning committee are Fred Fox, Trudie O’Brien. Johnny Davis, Ken Davidson, and Dody Yale. Junior council . . . will meet in 418 Student Union today at 12:30 p.m., according tc Don Blank, president. • • oylin to head rchitecture unit A new course in industrial design is opening on Nov. 1 as epartment within the College of Architecture. J. W. Boylin, istant professor in the College of Architecture, will head e new department. The curriculum in industrial design is r years in length, and leads to a B.S. degree, with the or being industrial design. he courses in this new depart-nt are integrated in the curricu-of the architecture classes, and the first two years they are *y related, n lower division work industrial gn majors take design, free-d and technical drawing, and eir required subjects. The upper ion work includes courses in d us trial design, materials and typography, lettering, A display and exhibit design. ‘Through the benefits of mass uction we will enjoy the best visit campus The paint-slinging, trophy-kidnapping maelstrom which annually descends upon the crosstown campuses of SC and UCLA began in earnest this week with the opening of the gridiron season. Student body presidents of both institutions, Gene Lee of UCLA and SC’s Bill Armbruster, McClung slates faculty address “Postwar Financial Problems” will be discussed by Dr. Reid Lage McClung, dean of the College of Commerce and Business Administration, when he speaks tomorrow noon at a luncheon given by the Faculty club. Reservations for the luncheon, to be held in the tearoom on the third floor of the Student Union, may be made by calling Station 240, according to Howard W. Patmore, registrar. Those who prefer may bring their lunches or come in time to hear the speaker at 12:30 p.m. Dean McClung, author of “Earning and Spending” and numerous articles in scientific and professional publications, was chairman of the department of economics In New York university before coming to SC. Serving as major in the machine gun corps of the United States army in World war I, he later was chief personal statistician on the general staff in Washington, D. C. “Dr. McClung plans to offer »o-lutions and to analyze important postwar economic problems,” said Dr. D. Welty Lefever, chairman of the program committee*. "This promises to be one of the most Important of the weekly summer meetings of the club.” Other discussions the club has held .this September include a tfclk on current American humor given by Dr. Frank C» Baxter, professor of English, and a presentation of facts concerning veterans problems and their scholastic work by Dr. Phillip A. Libby, assistant professor of management and coordination of veterans affairs at SC. in design, because in the past we have depended upon custom-made products for the best in design. When a craftsman has to create a design for just one or two pieces, he has to spend most of his time on the construction and gathering his materials,” states Professor Boylin. “Mass production makes it possible to spend thousands of dollars for the design of an object, because the cost of the designing work is spread over the large number of objects produced.” The object of the new depart-(Continued on Page Four) Rodee to address IR club meeting Speaking on the topic “Can Private Business Compete with State Sponsored Monopolies,” Dr. Carlton C. Rodee will address the International Relations club on Thursday at 12 noon. Dr. Rodee plans to compare Russian and British business with American commercial methods and to stress the relationship of price competition in this country. Program chairman urge all students interested to attend, including both members and non-members. Fraternity mother group to gather The interfraternity council has appointed the following members for the new committee on housemothers : Buzz Forward, chairman, Chuck Ford, Bill Camm, Chuck Martin. Forward requests that these persons meet him today at 2:30 p.rti. at Tommy Trojan. took steps late yesterday to waylay further outbreaks of rah-rah enthusiasms. While Trojans were gasping at the theft of the Victory flag and eyeing large and emblazoned red letters scrawled across buildings and sidewalks at SC, Uclans were busy out at Westwood examining wreckage done there. As was the case at Troy, many buildings along fraternity row and on the campus were defaced, according to Prexy Gene Lee. “I don’t believe Trojan students are actually responsible for the destruction caused at UCLA, nor do I think Bruin students caused ail the havoc here at SC,” Bill Armbruster stated. “It sounds like, and probably is, a prank of high school students from the surrounding community,” he added. Armbruster stated that most of the damage at SC, including the theft of the Victory flag, the removing of the protective canvas from Tommy Trojan, and the smearing of many buildings, was done during the game Friday night . . . While SC students, anticipating a return of the vandals, prepared for what one Trojan called “the siege of Troy,” prexies Armbruster and Lee were conferring, comparing notes on damages and laying plans for prevention of further “atrocities.” In the meantime, the direction sign which normally stands in the heart of the Bruin campus, mysteriously appeared in the middle of the 36th street and University avenue intersection, heart of Troy. “Both SC and UCLA have always encouraged friendly rivalry. The big ‘C’ painted on an SC sidewalk or ‘SC’ painted out at Westwood is at least tolerable, but malicious destruction of expensive property and equipment must be stopped,” Armbruster said. In the weekend paint-up campaign conducted by persons unknown as yet to Trojans, the houses along 28th street were heavily and loudly decorated with red paint. On campus, the north side of the men’s gym was splashed with red, and at the entrance to the football dressing room was printed, “Enter UCLA.” Room pleas get desperate As daily appeals for housing facilities flood her office, Helen Hall Moreland, dean of women, faces the problem of finding homes for 250 coeds now living in the east who are applying for admission to SC for the winter term. “The situation is critical,” she maintained, “as the four campus dormitories can accommodate only 347 women and the 250 others on the waiting list cannot come unless accredited persons open their homes for individual student roomers or boarders.” “Parents who would like to send their daughters ^est for the term beginning Nov. 1 are having to send them elsewhere for lack of horsing in Los Angeles,” she continued. Nip finances frozen tight by MacArthur TOKYO, Sept. 24. — (U.P.) — Gen. Douglas MacArthur, swiftly tightening his controls over occupied Japan, today banned all foreign and domestic financial transactions and set up conditions for a free press unhampered by government support or restrictions. --— Cutler reveals news of V-12 unit disposition All Japanese assets at home and abroad were frozen by the new directive, facilitating the task of “fingerprinting” Japan’s financial holdings and stopping further Japanese profit from their war-stolen empire. The sweeping new controls followed an eight-point directive banning Japanese atomic bomb research and forbidding any foreign trade not specifically authorized by MacArthur's headquarters. * Meanwhile, the secretary of Emperor Hirohito’s household ministry emphatically denied a Chungking radio report that the emperor had abdicated. The Chungking broadcast was heard Sunday by the FCC in Washington. MacArthur’s new financial directive ordered the Japanese government to prohibit the export or import of any type of currency, precious metals, securities, checks, bank drafts, bills of exchange, powers of attorney, proxies and other instruments, and any other evidence of indebtedness or property ownership not specially enumerated. Another order prohibited domestic financial transactions and transactions in foreign property owned by Japanese, as well as Japanese property acquired by foreigners since Pearl Harbor. Aipong property and assets were included debentures, stocks, bonds, mortgages, pledges, insurance policies, contracts, bank deposits, and securities. Another directive stripped the official news agency, Domei/ of special privileges and ordered the government to abolish its controls over the Japanese press. All government-created barriers to the free flow of news were ordered removed immediately. The new press code permitted Domei to continue distributing news within ,the home islands but under strict censorship. New competitive agencies will be permitted. The government was ordered to rescind its laws prohibiting any agency other than the ministry of communications, receiving foreign news broadcasts, thus making them available to all. Mysterious blaze causes 'row' row At 8:29 p.m. last night, Moreland hall and eight of its residents, who were eating a rather mundane dinner at the time, were at peace with the world. Then it happened—“it” being a blaze that left only charred remnants of a three-car garage and two palm trees in the rear of the Moreland hall premises, and thoroughly scorched a pepper tree, a eucalyptus tree, and the fence surrounding the tennis court. The billowing clouds of dark-gr^ smoke awakened one of the rodents of the dormitory, Miss Hing Chow, who was enjoying a brief nap in one of the upstairs rooms, and she called the Moreland hall women into the highly efficient action that is so typical of SC students during a crisis. Jackie Orlander, former YWCA president, grabbed the phone and let three Los Angeles fire companies know of the conflagration. Ida Lou Dixon dashed through the smoke and flames to rescue a 1941 Ford from impending disaster. The remainder of the women hooked the doors to keep out the hordes of people who rushed to the scene and then proceeded to wash dishes and tidy up the house in case the fire chief came to visit them. The exact cause of the fire and extent of the damage were not determined immediately, but it was reported from usually unreliable sources that a Theta Chi who had crossed Portland street to join the onlookers had lost a wallet containing a reputed four dollars in the melee. Capt. Shirley Y. Cutler, commandant of the NROTC at SC, released some important information regarding the retention of the navy unit at Troy yesterday. This matter has been held in question for sometime by the students, but the situation has now been cleared up because of the assistance given by Captain Cutler. NROTC trainees scheduled to graduate on or about Nov. 1, 1945, will be retained on active duty after commissioning unless at that time they are eligible for demobilization under .the basic system then in effect. The future disposition of V-12 engineers, physics majors, aerology majors, and pre-supply candidates who complete their training of college on or before Nov. 1, 1945 is that they will be retained on active duty and will be commissioned as officers either upon completion of their V-12 courses or upon the completion of further training, as subsequently determined, unless they earlier become eligible for demobilization under the basic system. Any student in the Navy V-12 program who is separated for physical, academic, or disciplinary reasons, or for lack of requisite officerlike qualities will be transferred to general enlisted duty in accordance with current procedures. Medical, dental, theological, premedical, pre-dental, and pre-theological students wiU be released to inactive duty only on the stipulation that they continue their medical, dental, theological, premedical, pre-dental, or pre-theological training. Rear Admiral William M. Fech-teler, USN, assistant chief of naval personnel, announced that V-5 trainees now in college training or who are scheduled to enter the program on or before Nov. 1. 1945, will be retained under instruction of active duty. Personnel whose applications for V-5 (NAPP) training have been apprc 'd, will report for dutjt under insti. ction as now scheduled. The navy department will propose legislation to congress at an early date to establish the status of students in the postwar NROTC. When such legislation has been enacted. all students then eligible for NROTC will be given .the opportunity to remain in the unit on the post-war basis. President's % office notice Owing to difficulties of transportation and the need of ajl available train space for the movement of service men, the university is making no arrangements this year for the attendance of students at the California game (at Berkeley), Saturday, Sept. 29. Travel should be discouraged until the needs of the army and navy are fully met. The university has supported in fullest measure every war and peace need since Pearl Harbor. We desire to maintain this splendid record throughout. All university campus programs wi*l be carried on here as usual. R B. von KleinSmid.
