Dean SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA ^bcUlu Hunt to retire Dr. Bogardus chosen to fill Inoja*. Vol. XXXVI 72 Los Angeles, Thursday, July 19, 1945 Night Phon« RI. 6472 No. 160 Warships shell Tokyo harbors; seel( Jap navy GUAM. July 19 —<U.E)— Hundreds of U.S. third fleet carrier planes, possibly finding the hiding place of the crippled Japanese fleet, struck “combatant” shipping at the Yokosuka naval base south of Tokyo yesterday, while warships shelled defenses guarding the entrance to Tokyo bay. Strongly Indicating that remnants of the Japanese navy might be at Yokosuka, Adm. Chester W. Nimitz’ daily war bulletin announced that the assault was made under extremely difficult weather conditions. It was possible that the Japanese might have moved units dam-., aged in previous actions to what they would consider the safe confines of Tokyo bay. Previously the fleet had been in hiding in the Inland sea but was driven out by » heavy attack in March which damaged 15 to 17 warships. A recent official navy estimate of [what remained of the once-proud fap&nese fleet showed the enemy iad two partly converted battleships, an old half battleship-half carrier and two old batleships not in commission. The Japanese also had a small number of aircraft carriers. moored alongside docks under camouflage. Among them were two or three fairly large carriers. The enemy also was reported to have approximately 30 destroyers and only a “few cruisers. The bulletin said a heavy attack wa* made “on combatant ship-ping*' off Yokosuka, which is oil the west side of Tokyo bay 30 <Continued on Page Three) Big '3' discuss occupation regime POTSDAM. July 18—<U.E)—President Truman. Prime Minister Winston Churchill, and Premier Josef JStalin are discussing a 10 to 20-year jccupation regime for Germany, it ras reported unofficially tonight ifter the Allied Big Three had held ieir second plenary meeting in the leavily guarded, secrecy shrouded »otsdam compound. It was understood that the Big iree were still discussing, in their plenary meetings, the sweeping program they are to consider at what sromised to be a long conference, asting anywhere up to three weeks. Relations of the three leaders were said to be cooeprative and cordial. However, according to unofficial eporls the control of Germany, and is part of it the nature and dura-ion of the Allied occupation, were tmong the first questions on the >rogram. Russia was believed likely, especially. to seek a long occupation— n order to make sure that Germany vould not have the chance in a ne£LSurable time, even if she had le disposition, to attack her neigh-Drs. The President set a conference (cord by eating two lunches— le first as guest of Churchill, the pcond as the guest of Stalin with aviar. meat and fish on the second lenu. Only the tiniest bits of real news Jeeped out of the strict censorship iposed and up to 10 p.m. it had not ;ven been admitted that the Big jThree got together for their second knee ting. LAS Fog' fiesta set in ADPi locale A “Foglight Fiesta” will greet dancers tomorrow evening from 7:30 to 10 on the tennis courts of the ADPi house. Sponsoring the affair will be the College of Letters, Arts, and Sciences. The locale is the same as that used for the LAS dig last year, according to Warren Taft, LAS president. There will be no admission charge and everyone is welcome, according to Harris Frank, chairman of the dig. “The goal of the affair is congeniality and friendliness — everyone gets to know each other,” he added. A ten-piece band plus recordings will keep dancing going throughout the evening. The orchestra is new to the campus, but is already popular with many of the navy trainees. ' Light refreshments wall be served at a slight charge, and those with a large appetite might bring their lunchboxes, Frank stated. This is the first outdoor dig of the term and will be held regardless of “unusual” weather, added Frank. Those not enrolled for the summer term are also invited to come and share the fun. A terrific turnout is expected, declared Taft. “Girls, no punches are barred for attempts to ‘get that man.’ The dig is a non-date affair, but couples are also welcome,” Taft and Frank added jointly. “Terrific” entertainment has been lined up to help out the good time, but the band will remain the feature attraction, they concluded. HARRIS FRANK »%• t it ... m a log. Dr. Depp urges religion reform “I have the conviction that the future hope of the world lies not in military and political alliances, important as they may be, but in a social order based on the teachings of Jesus.” With these words Dr. Mark Depp, pastor of Christ church, Pittsburgh, summed up his address to faculty and student body in Bovard auditorium yesterday noon in the first of a series of interfaith lectures sponsored by the student council of religion. Dr. Depp declared that many people are not satisfied with the state of the world at present but are not willing to make sacrifices necessary to improve the status QUO. “Everyone of us is, in the long run,” he asserted, “a part of the world's sickness or a part of the world's cure, and we cannot escape the responsibility thus imposed upon us. We must change ourselves if we are to change the world.” Dr. Depp continued, asking, “Where is the wisdom of a world which thinks of itself as being so wise, yet allows itself to devolve into such a mass of destruction as it has? Where is the wisdom of a world which makes waj-, using the resources of men and nature, when, after the war ends, we arc right back at our starting point?” Dr. Depp is the July speaker at the First Methodist church, Pasadena. He served as a chaplain during the last war. “We know all about life, except how to live,” he stated. Quoting from Karl Marx to the effect that “Philosophers only explain the world; the real task is to change it,” he reiterated that the reason behind the immutability of the world’s illness is the unwillingness of people to give un certain advantages for themselves and make supreme the principles laid down by Jesus. An informal forum was held later in the afternoon in the student lounge for interested students and faculty members. Bach-Mozart recital slated One of two summer-session programs, sponsored by the Allan Hancock foundation and the School of Music, will be presented in Hancock auditorium on Monday at 8:30 p.m. It will be a Bach-Mozar,t sonata recital by Alice Ehlers, harpsichordist, and Prof. Anton Maaskoff. violinist. Both are members of the School of Music. The program will consist of Sonata in A major, Mozart; Sonata No. 5 in F minor, Bach; Sonata No. 1 in B minor, Bach; Sonata in F major, Mozart. No admission charge is being asked for the current concert series, but reservations may be obtained by calling Richmond 4111, Station 451. Seats will be held until 8:15 p.m. for those holding reserved tickets. At that time non-ticket holders will be admitted. Knights to tag offending cars as drive opens Backing the attack on illegal parking and traffic problems on the SC campus, Trojan Knights will begin Monday to tag vehicles which violate the ordinances set up by the university and the Los Angeles police department for safety. According to Ed Lowther, the drive will continue until all traffic problems on the campus have been cleared up. Primary purpose of the drive, according to Lowther, is to prevent accidents on the Trojan campus, to provide more and better parking facilities, and to give SC a more orderly appearance. “Each term, with new students on campus,” Lowther said “some of the simple rules and regulations of traffic are forgotten, and violations occur. Our purpose is to make the students aware of the rules and to tag those who offend.” Particular emphasis will be given to parking on University avenue and 36th street where the majority of the offenses occur. The rules to be observed were printed in yesterday’s Trojan and will be reprinted again next week. Students are asked to read and observe the fgw simple regulations. Vehicles offending the rules will be tagged and a record of time, place, offense, and owner’s name and registration number will be taken, Lowther said. Continual offenders will be called before the men’s council or the women’s judicial court for discipline. “The drive is not intended to cause unnecessary hardship to students,” Lowther said, “but is simply to clear up the current traffic tangle.” Special areas are designated on campus for loading and unloading automobiles and trucks. Red areas are for safety, fire protection, and to keep the streets clear for traffic. Students are asked to observe these areas. Other special parking areas are set off near the P.E. building for physicians and should be observed, Lowther stated. Students are particularly warned against parking in public or private driveways which are constantly in use. Violations occur frequently in the area of Doheny library and the Allan Hancock foundation building. “It is only through a concerted effort by the students” Lowther said, “that we will be able to have an orderly and accident-free campus.” Graduate post After 37 years of ‘Service at SC, 25 of them as dean of the Graduate School, Dr. Rockwell Dennis Hunt, Graduate School dean and director of the School of Research, will retire Sept. 1, according to an official announcement yesterday.
