Sept. 5.—<T.P>—Emperor Hirohito opened the first postwar session of the Japanese diet today with an imperial rescript commanding his people to “win the confidence of the world" and reminding them that they are still bound in “service to the state.” Clad in the full khaki uniform of Grand Marshal of the Japanese army, including medals and spurs, the emperor read his 266-word rescript in person during a brief 25-minute opening of the 88th exera-ordinary session. The lavish diet building, which stands unmarked in the shattered heart of Tokyo, was heavily guarded by police as Hirohito was escorted from his palace a mile away to the joint session of the house of peers and house of representatives. Flanked by his brothers, two princes of the blood, the emperor rose from his golden throne in the huge rectangular room in the house of peers at 11:05 a.m. (10:05 p.m, Monday EWT) to read his rescript. Allied correspondents were forbidden to attend the opening session at which the emperor appeared and were forced to obtain the text of his rescript from an official. approved version broadcast by radio Tokyo. “It is our desire that our people will surmount the manifold hardships and trials attending termination of the war, make manifest the innate glory of Japan's national policy.* -Editorializing —- Be a postwar rooter SC’s first big: POSTWAR football season is on its way. Two weeks from Friday night the Trojans will clash with UCLA in the coliseum ... a week later SC will go north to Berkeley to play California . . . and then Oregon, St. Mary’s, San Diego navy, Washington, UCLA, and California again. And then ... on to the Rose bowl. If you want to be in on all SC’s home games, follow the Trojan band to the coliseum each Saturday, yell for the Cravath-mejt as they pour out of the tunnel before the game, and scream when the final score is posted and SC leads . . . buy a stqdent activity book today. Besides the tickets which will entitle you to admission to all SC’s home games, the activity book contains admissions to all-U activities ... dances, digs, rallies, tickets for track, baseball, and basketball season . . . and this year a special feature ... a ticket good for the 1946 El Rodeo, Trojan annual, which Clarice Thurman declares “will be of better than pre-war quality and will be out on time.” The student activity book ... is the best bargain any university can offer . . . and SC is offering it. A subscription for entertainment and athletics for a year . . . and a record of that year for your own in June. That’s the student activity book. The cost is $11 . . . YOKOHAMA, Sept. 4 —(U.R)— A total of 850 liberated prisoners of war were evacuated from Japan today by air and water as American occupation forces rushed their work of freeing allied prisoners from camps on Honshu island. Trojan band calls for 100 recruits The background of the Trojan band has been an illustrious one. The national popularity of the Trojan fight song can be partly attribued to the manner in which it has been played by cardinal and gold bands of the past. This season should prove, once more, that the noted Trojan spirit is still alive. Loyal Nisei guaranteed Pacific coast return WASHINGTON, Sept. 4.—(U.P.)—The army tonight re-oved all bars against loyal Japanese-Americans returning the Pacific coast, and it promised them the same treatment nd privileges “accorded other law-abiding American citizens nd residents.” The action, effective at midnight, ] ~ As an added incentive to swell the ranks of the Trojan band, “free admission to the football games, a seat on the 50-yard line, the privilege of wearing the snappy band uniform, and the satisfaction that comes from knowing one is contributing to school spirit in a big way" are some of the benefits one gains by membership in this organization, said Ralph Chadwick, student manager of the group. Seventy-two musicians are needed to insure a full complement of 100 members to help launch the 1945 grid season Sept. 21 when the Trojan gridmen meet UCLA in the opener. Anyone who has had experience in a band, or playing a band instrument, is asked to also help launch the gridiron season by becoming a member of the band. Dr. Lucien Cailliet, director of the university band and orchestra, recently conducted the band in a performance at the Hollywood canteen. The group also appeared as as feature attraction of a community concert at Monrovia and Arcadia last spring. If students so desire, they will receive one unit of credit for their work in the band. Chen to discuss China dilemma before faculty The Faculty Women’s club is sponsoring a lecture by Dr. Theodore H. Chen on “The Dilemma of China” for today's meeting of the SC Mens Faculty club. “Those who attend,’’ commened Dr. Eleanor Metheny, president of the organization, “will find Dr. | Chen's talk highly enlightening on China's internal affairs.” Dr. Chen, an outstanding authority on the history and political trends of Chinese thought, was born in China, and according to assistant professor in French Dr. Laurence M. Riddle, chairman of the program committee, he has a wide knowledge and interest in the future of China. Howard W. Patmore, president of the Men's Faculty club, stated that! Dr. Chen is in constant demand as a speaker at different group meet- j ings, and his lectures are always | interesting and successful. The tearoom on the third floor of the Student Union will be the location for the weekly gathering. “Having studied the trouble that has been brewing in China in the past concerning the Communist problem. Dr. Chen is prepared to talk to us in a very informative manner,” added Patmore. The lecture will follow luncheon, and those who prefer may bring their own lunches or come in time to hear the speaker at 12:30 p.m. Members are all requested to attend. and according to Patmore a highly successful and entertaining meeting will be held. The first army was put under the jurisdiction of Gen. Robert L. Eich-elberger's eighth army, the second under Gen. Walter Krueger's sixth army. Eichelberger’s men are occupying the Tokyo area. Krueger’s started landing in numbers yesterday by sea and air in the Kan-oya-Takasu area of Kyushu island, along the shore of Kagoshima bay at the southwestern end of Japan, 600 miles from Tokyo.

The Japanese also must give full information on current epidemics (Continued on Page Two) Correction noted in D.T. In a story in yesterday's Daily Trojan concerning the California veterans’ educational act, it was stated that there is no stipulation in the act setting a minimum length of service for eligibility to benefits. Thomas M. Healy, assistant to the supervisor of education of the state veterans welfare board, stated that, although the act itself does not set such a minimum length of service, the veterans welfare board of California made an administrative rule on Apr. 15, 1944, which states: No applicant shall be approved who has acquired less than 90 days of active service, unless he has % service-connected disability or some extenuating circumstances exist. Wally Baker succumbs to death in Chicago In a telegram received yesterday, SC was informed that Wally Baker, Phi Kappa Tau, and former president of the Interfraternity council, had died of a heart attack yesterday morning at 4:30 in Chicago.

Dancing, cokes, and popcorn are the main features of the evening, dancing to be held on the volleyball court of the SAE house to top orchestra records, and refreshments to be served on the terrace of the Alpha Chi Omega house. To add Trojan cheer and enthusiasm to the atmosphere, pennants and pom pons, a giant Trojan horse, and card stunts along with songs and school yells will hold their place in the evening’s affair. “The yells, led by Terry Nelson, cheer leader, will echo and re-echo throughout the neighborhood,” stated Nan Watson, co-chairman with Gene Mix of the affair, “and new Trojans will have an opportunity to learn the cheers, and the old students will be able to shout at the top of their lungs. All in all, the air will be filled with songs and cheers of Troy.” SC’s own Grapple Gertie, for whom this dig is being named, and her strange and sinister influence over the football team will be revealed when she is presented as th hon-ord guest of the evening.
