Under the new setup, no associate editors will be appointed. Eshleman stressed that this move was meant to strear%line the top levels of the staff and to allow the news editor's desk to concentrate on the quality of writing and reporting in the paper, while the desk editors are given more rein in molding a paper of pleasing appearance on sound technical lines.

We can feel it in the air. It’s not just the exuberance that comes naturally at the tyeginning of a school year, with all its hopes, its ambitions, its unidentifiable but peculiarly exhilarating whisperings to the inner consciousness: “Maybe this year will be the year. Maybe now, with things as I hope them to be. I’ll find what it is I’m looking for.” And, though we almost never find our personal Holy Grail, we go on searching, and each year brings the same heady feeling, the same young goat-song of hope and triumph to come, and year after year we feel we’re on the edge of the forest, with the cool meadows of our dreams just ahead. * * * For SC this year may well be the most important since 1879, when plans for our school were first formulated. For this is the year in which we finally must make up />ur mind to enter the era of mass education. No matter how much we would like to see it, the days of quiet afternoon sessions under the shade-trees of a deserted University avenue have departed, never to return. The most conservative guessers all say that enrollment levels will remain near the present record totals for as long a time as an education-conscious nation will c ntinue its search for knowledge. To make our decisions, we have a new president. Dr. Fred D. Fagg. With him has come, as it must always come with fresh leadership, a spirit and hope that has (Continued on Page Two) Faculty Unite To Hail New SC Era In Checks Most Veterans to Get Subsistence by Nov. 1 In spite of the 95,000 veteran enrollment in the Los Angeles area, the Los Angeles ! regional office of the Veter -lans Administration announced today that subsistence checks should be forthcoming early in November.

Dr. P. A. Libby, SC coordinator of veterans affairs, told the Trojan that veterans attending both summer sessions or on leave during the past month will probably not be delayed as much as those who interrupted their training during the summer completely. Officials of the VA require veterans registration records from the university, before payment procedure can begin. University Efforts “The university,” said Dr. Libby, “is doing everything in its power to forward necessary information t o the VA so that Trojan veterans can be paid as promptly as possible.” An exclusive release to the Trojan from the veterans office regarding latest developments in payment procedure is expected late this week. When this arrives full information will be available, enabling vets to work out their approximate date of payment, and arranging their financial program accordingly.

You will find here an able and friendly faculty, a rich offering of courses, and the largest number of students the university has welcomed to its campus. Classrooms and laboratory facilities will be taxed to capacity. When you encounter the hardships of crowded classes and closed sections, remember that we must fulfill an obligation to those veterans who wish to continue their education. School years pass all too quickly. Make the most of your opportunities for close association with your colleagues on the faculty and in the student body. Develop a standard of values by which a full life can be lived. Participate in some part of our sports program. Above all, remember that the main job is fitting yoursetf for the responsibilities which are certain to be yours in the exciting years ahead.
