What are you waiting for? Clark Expla Vet Fee Plans Worried about whether that $500 GI allowance is going to cover the new tuition hike, and what will happen if it doesn't, veterans? The answers to these questions were given today by James F. Clark, assistant controller. If tuition costs exceed $500 for a two-semester school year, the veteran may pay the overcharge in cash, or he may have the veterans administration pay the overcharge, by filling out fcrm 1950a. Tlie veterans administration, when it pays the overcharge, will deduct excess elgibility at the rate of one day for | each $2.10 of overcharge. Clarifying the yearly allowance of $500 authorized by the GI bill, Clark pointed out that the allowance is not based on a 12-month year, but on a nine-month academic year, with an extra allowance for veterans who choose to attend the Summer Session. Under the maximum four-year eligibility, the veteran is allowed to attend school for five two-semester school years, or for four full years if the Summer Session is attended each year. Any overcharge paid by the veterans administration is deducted from this total amount of elig bility. The average veteran taking 16 or less units in most departments other than medicine, dentistry, or pharmacy, will have little if any overcharge, it was estimated. Veterans who were legal residents of California before entering the service may take advantage of the California veterans bill, in addition to the GI bill. This bill allows a maximum of $1000 for schooling. Subsistence at the rate of $40 a month, and a $25 a semester allowance for books are deducted from the $1000. Veterans may take advantage of th s state bill either before or after the GI allowance has been used. At a sophomore class council meeting last week, it was decided that the “Emblem of the Spirit of Troy,” was in dire need of scouring. “The cleaning of Tommy is only the first of many projects planned by the sophomore class,” declared Bill Winn, class president. "Our No. 1 object this year is to build up class spirit. Each week will see a new undertaking.” NEW SV.’ORD FOR TOMMY For many months the sword that Tommy h el d extended has been missing. Possibly someone wrongly translated the inscription on the seal or SC, “Palmam Qui Meruit Ferat,” (.•‘Let him bear away the palm who has deserved it.”) to read “‘bear away the sword.” At any rate, according to Winn, “The sophomore class has ordered a new bronze sword to replace the missing part of Tommy's equipment.” The heroic statue of a Trojan youth mounted on a massive pedestal of silver - gray granite was unveiled on June 6. 1930, as a feature of the university’s celebration of its Golden anniversary. SOME WHITEWASHINGS Since that day when Tommy first became the symbol of SC, he has had many cleanings and, incidentally, several white-washings. As the council members scrubbed away the covering of paint and (Continued on Page Four) Berkes Notes Big Policy Rift In UN Results Peace Conferences Show World Failure To Work Together Cooperation of the great powers of the world appears to be dead and the world already divided into two opposing camps when all recent reports from the Security council of the United Nations and the Paris peace negotiations are considered, Dr. Ross N. Berkes, assistant professor of international relations, stated yesterday. Dr. Berkes, who will talk on the “Conflicting Policies in the Occupation of Germany” at the second in Ihe LAS series of Wednesday lectures today at 3:15, in the art and lecture room of University library speaks with authority on the German question. PLANS BERLIN COUNCIL He helped organize and develop the four-power machinery' of control in Berlin during its first months of activity, and he has kept abreast of the situation there through his work in international relations. Dr. Berkes feels that although one does not look upon the German picture with optimism, it will bear walching as the final test of the United Nations. TO DISCUSS GERMANY In his talk this afternoon Dr. Berkes will discuss the functions of the quadripartite machinery at work in Germany, decisions of the Control council of the United Nations, the industrial disarmament of Germany, and various phases of occupational tasks facing the world powers. The lecture, second of the current series, is sponsored by the LAS council, under the direction of Carl Gebhardt, president. Today's audience will be greeted at the door by council members Nan Watson and Hal Hodges, while Eph Konigsberg will introduce the speaker. Mary Jane Woodrow was responsible for publicity posters. KUSC to Go on Air With Gala Broadcast Wending Wins Special Election Walter L. Wending and Robert M. Jordan were elected president and vice-president, respectively, of the College of Architecture in a special election held yesterday. “Election turnouts were exceptionally good this year,” stated Bob Myer, election chairman. “More than half of the students registered in the college went to the polls.” Class representatives will be chosen later by the new cabinet. U.S. Cuts Off Loans to Russ WASHINGTON. Oct. 22 (UJ?) — Secretary of State James F. Byrnes indicated today that Soviet Russia and the entire European bloc under her sway will get no more American loans until they drop their talk of “dollar imperialism” and demonstrate a more friendly attitude toward this country. Byrnes revealed also that he had obtained an iron clad promise from Russia. Britain, and France to open preliminary discussions on the German peace treaty when the Big Four foreign ministers meet in New York next month. He told a press conference that the New York meeting will decide whether there is any hope of prompt agreement among the major powers on all-important terms for Germany. If so. he said, he is prepared to return to Europe for another full-dress peace conference.

Lewis tonight threatened a countrywide strike of 400.000 soft coal miners Nov. 1 unless the government met his demand to reopen its contract with his United Mine Workers on that date. The UMW president, who asked Secretary of Interior J. A. Krug yesterday to start new wage negotiations under the contract within 10 days, said in a letter to Krug tonight: “Failure on your part to honor this meeting will constitute another breach of the contract and will void the Krug-Ijewis agreement.” The traditional policy of the UMW is “no contract; no work.” Lewis sent his virtual ultimatum to Krug after his initial demana had been formally rejected in a letter from Capt. N. H. Collisson. federal coal administrator, who countered with a suggestion that the UMW attempt to negotiate a contract with mine owners so that the pits can be returned to private op- Noted Opera Soprano Has Talent and Charm by Al Lalane Maria Kurenko has been acclaimed around the world as “a magnificient singer,” “a superb artist,” and “a rare interpreter of song.” In addition to all this, she is a delightful person to know. When Mme.

Music annotation will be nirrated by Wii ham Strobridge of the Hancock foundation. Dr. Rufus B. von KleinSmid chancellor of the university, will open the broadcast with a brief keynote address on behalf of the greater university. NEW THEME SONG The Hancock ensemble will pre sent for the first time to any audience its newly composed theme song, followed by the Overture “Impresario,’* Mozart. William Sharps’ “The White Peacock,” a poem, set to music by the noted composer Charles T. Griffes, will be read to its background murk for the audiences listening pleasure. To bring the history of KUSC. in the making, to the radio audience, KUSC will introduce Capt. Allan Hancock of the Hancock foundation, whose farsightedness brought F. M.. as a research project, to SC; Robert D. Fisher, financial vice-president of the university, who represents KUSC’s financial problems; Dr. Max T. Krone, dean of the Institute of the Arts, under which radio is a department: and William H. Sener, director of the radio department and general man ager of KUSC. 20 MILE RADIUS The premier broadcast will em ploy the full facilities of FM broadcasting techniques and will be greatly enhanced by the nearly completed 250-foot radio tower which extends its possible reception beyond a 20 mile radius. Five hundred tickets are available at the information desk in Hancock building to those students and faculty members who are interested in attending the opening. The public will be excluded, except by special invitation, because of the limited size of the auditorium.

Chopin; suid the Polka by Weinberger from his opera “Schwanda, the Bagpipe Player.” meeting a charming personality. A friendly and spirited conversationalist, Mme. Kurenko has that clear, resonant voice and precise articulation peculiar to singers, which make us ordinary people a little ashamed of our own slovenly speech. When questioned yesterday, she was very enthusiastic about tomorrow's concert. UNUSUAL PROGRAM “It will be a most unusual and interesting program,” she said. “Russian music will predominate, of course, but my three groups of solo* will feature Italian and French songs as well. Other groups will present the choir alone and in special arrangements with me.” Asked if she had heard the choir yet, the soprano smiled affirmatively. “Yes, we have rehearsed to wounded and dying, sings his last lullaby to him. Such songs as this are Mme. Ku-renko's favorite material. Praised for her versatality in singing every type of work from art songs to popular classics, she nevertheless said she prefers something with emotional “meat” in it. What then, of American jazz? “Nothing can tire me out very easily,” she laughed, “but ‘popular’ music does it. I find the heavy accented beat very exhausting. It has its place, of course, but I can lead a rich and full life without it When I hear jazz, I want to get up and run away. - “That doesn’t mean I don't like American music.

The A Cappella choir is performing the arrangements beautifully. Dr. Hirt is doing wonderful work with the organization. He is an easily followed conductor and a splendid musician.” Not only will the special arrangements prepared by Alexandre Gretchaninoff, the noted Russian composer and arranger, be presented, but also the first hearing in Los Angeles of a solo with choral accompaniment arranged by the soprano herself. This is the aria from the fourth act of “The Enchantress.” Tschaikowski. The song is from a poem by Pushkin. Marie, who has lost her mind see- SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO. Oct. 22. (UP) — Unless something upsets their much-publicized routine, the swallows of Capistrano are to whir away from their mission eave nests tomorrow. Mission fathers say the birds have gone on San Juan's day and returned again on St. Joseph's day. March 19. for the past 167 years. Villagers attribute the performance to a religious miracle. Where the sparrows go to winter is something of a local mystery, but both fathers and residents insist they aren't around Capistrano Keymen Plan Phone Book Blue Key members have been authorized by the chancellor's office to collect information for a new campus telephone directory, which will be published in the near future by the office of university publications.

The old telephone directory, published in 1943. has become outdated due to changes in office rooms and personnel. The new directory will be ready for the printers about the first of November.
