Registration booths will be sgt up in the same places as in the first registration period, with Che main booth station in front of the Administration building, and additional stations in the Annex and Engineering buildings. “With only 3303 students registering in the initial period, we hope to have at least that many more in this period and we are prepared to take care of every eligible student voter,” Jones added. During this second period which will end Friday, students will be asked to present their yellow identification card which will be punched at the time of registration as a check against multiple voting.

Tonight’s semifinal contestants are Lindy Blanc, Bobbie Bryant, Barbara Butterfield, Doris Gail, Claudia Garbett. Mary Martinez, Ann Roehmheld, Bonnie Theurer, Shirley Wilmore, and Jean Wisseman. Trovets Issue Donation Plea Another appeal for donations of books, magazines, and cigarettes for hospitalized Trojans was issued yesterday by Trovets. “The response to our request for gifts for SC students in tne hospital has been disappointing so far,” said Vernon Bake. Trovet publicity director. Trovets and interested students will visit the McCormack general hospital in Pasadena, Thursday, he said. Trovets hospital commit tee, headed by Luke Evans, has asked for gifts of books, magazines, cigarettes. and candy. Gifts may be turned in at the Trovet office, 300-C Student Union. LAS Ballhawks Seek First Win TT\S softballers will have revenge in their eyes when they line up against the Faculty All-Stars tomorrow at noon on the archery field. At the last meeting of the two clubs, the faculty team won handily 11-6. The revamped LAS team will feature such well-known politicos as John Davis and Bill Winn, and will unveil the new rookie pitching sensation Jesse “Over and” Unruh. !‘Over and” Unruh will have his hands full when he comes up against the famed faculty “murderer’s row” composed of “Ty” Zeck, “Happy” Caldwell, and “Babe” Sanders. However over-confidence may be the cause of the faculty club’s downfall. When the Daily Trojan interviewed the faculty spokesman, “Babe” Sanders, the Bambino said, “After we crush this mediocre LAS team, we may be expected to ma£e a tour of the bush-league circuits, playing such teams as Vassar and j Smith. The Bambino also voiced | “Happy” Caldwell’s demands that the sprinklers be removed so that he can cover right-field more ef-! fectively. Joe Flynn, ASSC presidential aspirant. will be calling the balls and strikes. Flynn promised complete impartiality in the refereeing. The faculty lineup was not available. Here is the new LAS student team: Jesse Unruh, p; Art Buchwald, c; Dan Kubby, 3b: Fred Knell, ss; John Davis, lb; Bill Winn, If; Herb Hynson. rf; Paul Wildman, 2b; and Bill Colt, cf. IFC Calls Platform Meeting; Unity Ready for Hot Debate Davis to Seek Election Hints From Backers Johnny Davis yesterday issued a call for an open meeting to discuss campaign policy in the coming ASSC elections. The rally is scheduled for 1 p.m. today in 102 Barracks Q. Davis, who is the IFC-indorsed candidate for the office of ASSC president, listed two reasons for calling the meeting. “First, we want all of the students who are backing me in the election to have an opportunity to offer suggestions in the planning of my platform,” he said. "Second purpose of the meeting is to discuss campaign procedure and map overall strategy.” Davis last week defeated Bill Winn in the Interfraternity council’s primary election. This was the first all-Row primary to be held at SC in recent history. His victory in that election gave him the support of all fraternity men on campus as a candidate for the university’s highest student office. He is chairman of the greater university committee and was chairman of th Winter Carnival dance committee. He is a member of Trojan Knights, Blue Key, and is past president of the Squires. A senior in industrial management, he has twice held the office of president of Sigma Phi Epsilon, social fraternity. SDX . . . members and pledges are required to attend a mandatory meeting today at 1 in the managing editor’s office. DAVE EVANS . . . quota reached Y Book Drive EndsTomorrow The quota of 10,000 books in the Trojan Memorial Book drive, which ends tomorrow at 4 p.m., has been reached, according to Dave Evans, chairman of the drive. The date of the end of the drive was erroneously announced in yesterday’s paper as May 17. Seven organizations, Acacia, Alpha Chi Omega, Kappa Alpha, Kappa Sigma, Phi Delta Theta, Scorpion club, and Theta Chi, lead the race for the trophy, which is to be awarded to the organization contributing the greatest number of books to the drive. Nineteen fraternities and nine of eighteen sororities listed thus far have not contributed a single book to the driv#. Evans commenting on the ending of the drive said “A drive of this sort requires a great deal of work and it is unfair to ask volunteer workers to continue giving their time and effort.” Organizations may drop their contributions at the book collection depot at 857 West 36th place. Gariss, Johnson Give Views At Independent Rally Today Fiery oratory, accusations, denunciations, and all the other techniques of a genuine political campaign rally is to be displayed for students today in 305 administration when Unity party starts its bandwagon rolling down the stretch ------—+for the campus elections. Biggest item of interest to on- Summer Class Signup to Start On May 17th looker* is expected to be the debate between Jack Gariss. independent candidate, and Leonard Johnson, the man who took his place as Unity party's candidate for independent representative. Gariss’ dramatic resignation created a furor in campus political circles. Gariss asserted that a party which has both independent and organized members cannot truly represent the independent student. JOHNSON PREPARED Johnson, in turn, denies that any registrar, announced disparity in representation exists, German Club's Nina' To Open Bovard Run “If practice makes perfect, ‘Nina’ should be a definite success when it opens in Bovard this afternoon,” said Leo Buscaglia, director of the play, yesterday. “The cast has been preparing for months and after intensive rehearsals during the last week, professional performances should be given by*-~ ’ everyone,” he added. Temporary Prexy Holds Office •obkin . . campaign committee will bet in 402 Student Union today As theoretical president of SC. , James Sena. Los Angeles high j school student, visited the student body, campus leaders and faculty ' yesterday, as a feature of Boys Week. Temporarily relieving President Fred D. Fagg Jr.. Sena spent the day as a guest of the Trojan j Knight, with Knight Johnny Davis, i escorting him around to see the ad- j I ministration and students at work. Sena is editor of the Blue and White daily, Los Angeles high school newspaper, and is also a member of the school's student cabinet and house of representa-I tives. In welcoming his guest. Dr. Fagg ! stated his being in accord with |the principle* of Boys week. "It’s a fine thing for the youths of our high schools to be given a chance to investigate the duties of organizations that they themselves may some day be connected with.” he said. Starting his tour of the campus with lunch at the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity house, Sena was later introduced to Dean of Men Neil D. Warren and Dean of Women Helen Hall Moreland, who also .extended greetings to the temporary president. He later met ASSC President Paul Wildman. and became engaged in a discussion of the comparative student governments of SC and his school. Stating his special interest in visiting the DT, Sena was greeted by Editor Dick Eshleman. who showed him around the offices. His comment when asked about the seeming difference of the Blue and White and the DT: “It’s bigger.” Social life at SU was described to him by Jea Morf, ASSC vice-president, who listed the activities of the school, and the past and future planned all-U functions. Sena was offered a chance of visiting one of several city offices during the day. but stated that he preferred SC as a result of a former visit here during a journalism convention. The event was sponsored by the Los Angeles Times, whereby high school students are guests of leading departments of the city and county administration. Although the three-act comedy by Bruno Frank has played to capacity audiences in Europe, this will be the first time that it has ever been presented in its original language in the United States, according to members of Der Aka-demische Festverein, SC’s German club which is producing the play. “Production of ‘Nina’ was originally started at the beginning of the spring semester for the amusement of the members of the Ger-| man club, but so many people were i interested in our effort that we decided to do a full-scale produc-i tion,” said Bob Herman, a member of the cast. “Directing this play has been a unique experience for me,” said Buscaglia. “I don’t understand German so it was necessary for me to memorize every line in English to check the performances of the actors.” In choosing Buscaglia for their director, members of the cast say that they have solved one of the biggest problems connected with the play, that of making the actors aware of the necessity of emphasizing their actions to convey meaning to the large percentage of the audience that does not understand German. There will be two performances, today a 3:30 matinee, and tomorrow evening at 8:30. Tickets are on sale in 106 Bridge hall.
