S. C. North-professor of law and philosophy at Yale university, who -♦made the first of three lectures he is giving this week on “International Policy for a War-threatened World.” He will deliver his second speech today at 3:30 p.m. in Hancock auditorium. NEED SOCIALIST VOTE Dr. Northrop stressed the im-! port ance of the United States cap-! turing the opinion of the parlia-j mentary. middle-of-the-road social-the ! ists in Europe, who constitute 40 per cent of the masses. He said that those who purport laissez-faire policies can muster only 30 per cent of the voters, making “middle” socialists the important group in obtaining a majority of public opinion. The speaker said that to capture this 40 per cent ‘ we must formu-topT at 36th street and Uni- lat* a democratic program foster-aveni# and a few “throttle in* Parliamentary procedures of s” confirmed to drive at high jfree discussion and genuine elec- | tions.

Johnson declined to give any |ils of the plan. ;anwhile .the chances of a se-injury to a pedestrian, or taps even a fatality, continued the thoroughfare while students led to cooperate” with police university officials. HYNSON COMMENTS erb Hynson, Trojan Knight lident, said that much of the Ibie aiO:n "Murder Alley-’ stems l the inadequate parking space lable on campus. ’he lack of adequate loading unloading zones off of thor-iifares in the campus area also k to the congestion along Uni-lity avenue." Hynson said. Ihe Knight leader commented he |eved that “better cooperation” teen students and police might lead to a solution of the prob- ness. The draft and UMT should be adonted to fight the war threat and guarantee free voters, unafraid of Communists, in Europe, he added. “We don’t want war, but unless we preDare, Stal;n may think we are talking bigger than we are. We must back our ideological program giving the masses in Europe a chance to r<$uild their lives,” he concluded. HERB HYNSON . . . test offered Knight-Squire Test Scheduled An examination for prospective Knights and Squires was announced yesterday by Herb Hynson. Knight president. Thursday from 2:15 to 4 p.m. is the only time the test is offered, and Hynson stressed the importance cf being present at that time in 113 Baracks Q. “In the past, applicants have been told that the written examination has not counted very much, and. therefore, they have not studied the test subjects. Emphasis is placed on this test, which will be accurately graded and the results posted,” said Hynson. A list of examination subjects is posted in the Knights office. The test is to be comprehensive and deals with campus history and traditions. There are 220 applicants for the 40 positions open in the Knights, and 150 applications for the 50 vacancies in the Squires. Prospective members are graded on test scores, interest in campus and other activities as showr. by petition, and personal interviews to be conducted at a time to be announced. Approach To Peate Discussed Booth Examines Racial Problems In Los Angeles Religion in the search for peace was examined on the local scene yesterday afternoon as G. Raymond Booth, executive director of the Los Angeles council for civic unity, discussed “Approach to Peace in the Community.” Part of the council of religion’s Religious Emphasis day, the talk was in the art and lecture room, University library, following a noon all-U assembly in Bovard auditorium. “We don’t have discrimination in Los Angeles,” Mr. Booth stated in his informal remarks. ‘We bring together these many racial backgrounds and stir them up until we have fears and misunderstandings.” The civic unity official observed the other existing problems of race and religious relations here, noting that “a wave of anti-Semitism has swept over the United States in the last 60 to 90 days.” In the noon assembly, talks were heard from Father Robert Coerver, Catholic representative; Rabbi Jacob Pressman, representing the Jewish faith; and Dr. Frank Fagerburg, who spoke for the Protestants. Advisers from all campus religious groups will meet with interested students today during the 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. discussion period. Most of the advisers are scheduled to be available at the Hillel house, 1029 West 36th street.

Coach Dan Kubby announced that Milt Dobkin has been removed from tlie centerfield slot for Jesse Unruh, a bigger man who covers much more ground. UNRUH PLAYS? “Unruh is really two ball players in one,” opined Kubby. “With him roving the centerfield pasture we’ll have the equivalent of 11 men on the field. How can we lose?” Sam Barry’s faculty nine took advantage of the game’s delay, too. They got in a few more workouts, unlimbering muscles that hadn’t Winn Trails By 100 Votes Johnny Davis forged ahead of his opponent Bill Winn by a 100-vote margin yesterday in the race for the IFC presidential nomination, as 858 fraternity men went to the primary polls to select their candidate. With slightly less than half of the 1700 fraternity members on campus still to cast ballots in this first primary election ever held at SC, Davis’ edge is regarded as far from conclusive as polls reopen this morning to gather in the deciding votes. Yesterday’s final count ws.s Davis, 479; Winn, 379. Intensifying efforts to “get ai of the fraternity vote,” the IFC? elections commission planned to contact all voters who failed to cast ballots in the first day’s voting and urge them to do so today. Ralp;i Townsend, Sig Ep and cochairma$ of the commission, revealed also that the polls will be moved to the Row this evening between 4 and 6 to facilitate further balloting. All houses are being asked to urge their members to vote. The IFC meeting tonight will climax the feverish pre-election activity that has kept the Row busy for several weeks. At this meeting the winner of the election- will be announced and fully endorsed. IFC candidates for the offices of sophomore class president and assistant yell leaders also will be named and endorsed.

Two DC-3 transports, inscribed “Peace Plane” in large blue letters, bore the 41 passengers on their mission to Washington to support the move to strengthen the UN. If the move fails, they will urge the calling of a world constitutional convention for the purpose of creating a supranational government. Aboard the planes as they winged across southern California and Arizona, last-minute preparations were mapped out and the group studied the various proposals that have been advanced for world government. The Peace Plane delegates are urging everyone interested in the cause of world peace to write, phone, or wire fheir representatives in Washington to back legislation aimed at strengthening international organization. As the Peace Plane arrived in Albuquerque, it was leAmed that the house foreign affairs committee is now holding hearings on legislation for the revision of the UN. The legislation under consideration is house resolution 59, sponsored by Reps. Thomas E. Morgan and Helen Gahagan Douglas of California. * The Unity party break reached new intensity today as Leonard Johnson, independent council member, took former party chairman Jack Gariss’ challenge to run as UP candidate for independent representative. Action was precipitated when Gariss, in an unexpected --*move Friday afternoon, renounced the UP platform, resigned as nominal head of the party, and challenged any Unity candidate to run against him. He also called for the UP candidate to meet him in public debate to answer his attack on the party’s platform. RILEY ANNOUNCES Herb Riley, acting steering committee chairman, announcing Johnson’s selection said, “Gariss’ challenge for us to run a candidate in opposition to him for this office makes it imperative that we do so. in that he has repudiated, ‘the whole policy of the Unity party.’ We could not in any way support a man who has as his sole purpose the setting up of an alternate political machine of non-organized students to fight the existing Row machine . The Unity party has always stood for improved student government and has backed those candidates who have that as their object.” Johnson, last year’s UP candidate for senior class president, stated in answer to Gariss’ challenge; “I feel that my affiliation and work with the independent student council qualifies me as a candidate for the office. I would be only too glad to meet Mr. Gariss in front of a “public as- Book Collection Leaders Listed Kappa Sigs lead the trophy race in the Trojan Memorial Book drive with a total of 347 books contributed to the collection drive, wrhich ends 4 p.m„ May 3. Scorpion club, with 257, and Kappa Alpha, with 215, are second and third. Organizations participating for the trophy, which is to be awarded on the basis of total books collected, have accounted for 1357 of the 3500 books collected to date. Organizations who would like to borrow the trophy for exhibition for a short period of time may make arrangements to do so by calling at the book depot, 857 West 36th place ,and all competing units hould bring books directly to this address. NEED MORE HELP In expressing the gratitude of the YMCA for response received in helping to catalogue books, Frances Kovacs, secretary of the drive, stressed the need for additional assistance for the task of keeping records. “Our quota for this semester is 10,000 books, and if it is to be reach ed a great many books will have to came in at the last minute,” said Miss Kovacs. “We would appreciate all competing organizations getting their contributions in as soon as possible to avoid the usual last-minute rush,” she added. “This drive is to be carried on each semester for the next 10 years, with the quota being 10,000 books per year. If the quota is not reached this semester, the first books contributed next fall will be added to this spring’s total,” Miss Kovacs said. DAMAGED BOOKS SOLD Outdated and badly damaged books will be sold and the money will be used to buy encyclopedia and other useful books chosen from list furnished by the various schools and departments of the uni versity. Book collection depots are located in the lobbies of the Law and Engineering buildings, entrance to the Student Union cafeteria, main hall way of Old College, and adjoining the main desk at the university library. Today s Headlines by United Press Army Moves to Halt Riots KOBE, Japan, Apr. 26—The United States army clamped an iron rule on the seaport cities of Kobe and Osaka today to halt Korean rioting. Eight alleged Japanese Communists admitted that the outbreaks were planned by party headquarters in Tokyo. Arabs Serve Notice on UN LAKE SUCCESS, N. Y., Apr. 26—The Arabs of Palestine today served notice on the United Nations that they would set up an independent Arab state in Palestine May 15 unless the UN guaranteed them control of the Holy Land at a fixed future date. Faced with a similar threat by the Jews of Palestine and the prospect of all-out civil war in the Holy Land 19 days from now, the UN general assembly ordered the trusteeship council to draft emergency steps to protect the city of Jerusalem and its shrines. Forrestal Says 66 Groups Enough WASHINGTON. Apr. 26—Defense Secretary James Forrestal warned congress today against rushing through a costly, 70-group air force program when 66 groups would give this country air supremacy right now. All candidates running for student body offices on the Unity party ticket, or with the endorsement of the party, are requested to attend a meeting in the senate chambers, at 1 p.m. today. “Committee chairmen and their workers must also attend this meeting,’* announced Vernon Blake, publicity chairman, yes- sebdly’ or any other place he desires an danswer any questions he has to ask with regard to my ability to represent the independent students. I have some questions ol my own toask Mr. Gariss.” GIVES REASON Gariss, who has announced his candidacy for independent representative, today gave his reasons for the surprise announcement on Friday and further explained his platform as an independent: “I think personally many fine people are running as candidates in the Unity party, but I, as an individual, could not head a group whose principles I disagreed with. “I feel that independent students are actually disenfranchised when UP nominates a fraternity candidate for the same office as an IFC man. The IFC holds nominating primaries at which only Row people can vote, and when the UP, who nominally at least allows the independent student a vote, also selects fraternity man, it paradoxically deprives the independent of an opportunity to choose, by any method of nomination or initiative. Races in which only UP and IFC candidates run are not uncommon. In summary, I believe there may be a part for UP to play in campus politics, as there is for the IFC, but if the independent student is going to be adequately represented there will have to be a truly independent organization.” Baxter to Speak At Faculty Club Dr. Frank C. Baxter, professor of English, will speak on the verse of Dr. William G. Angermann at the luncheon meeting of the Men’s Faculty club tomorrow noon. Dr. Angermann of the College of Engineering has recently published his book of verse. “Out ot a Childhood,” frcm which Dr. Baxter will offer several selections. Reservations for the luncheon in the tea room of the Student Union must be made by noon today with Miss Rose Walton, Station 288 or 289, since seating space is limited.
