TENSION HIGH British troops began withdrawing at 10 p.m. and Americans at midnight. Authorities gave no reason for the scheduled change. Tension was high along the entire Morgan line, however. Earlier today Maj. Gen. Bryant E. Moore, commander of the United States 88th division, ordered Americans at 34 frontier posts w7hich one to be turned over to Yugoslavs that they were not to fire “except in self defense.” As the British and Americans withdraw, Yugoslavs will move up to their new temporary frontier, part of it bordering Trieste free territory. COMMON BORDER North of the territory, the Italians will take up the Gorizia frontier which has been guarded by the British and Americans. They will have a common bor PAUL WILDMAN • . , . best yet Prexy Greets Student Body Troy’s greatest year! Let this be our opening and closing statement for 1947-1948.

Take an active part in student activities for you shall find them helpful and stimulating. Paul Wildman. ASSC President der with Yugoslavia for the first time since the armistice. Some American officers were obviously nervous about the night withdrawal. “With four armies on the move, anything can happen.” one said. Some units were confused by the sudden order to withdraw because formal ceremonies for handing over the new territory—formerly Italian —to Yugoslavia by top generals remained scheduled for 9 a. m. tomorrow. SECURITY CONTROL At 8 a. m. tomorrow (3 a. m. EDT> the free territory will be taken over by the American. British and Yugoslav military governments, each backed by 5000 troops. The security council will control the territory after it decides on a_governor. Meanwhile, only 5730 Venezia Giulia civil police were left to cope with Trieste riots and widespread disturbances throughout the territory. A genade blew off a man’s head tonight in the square that was named, ironically, “The Place of Unity.” Earlier this afternoon four bullets fired from a window killed a Yugoslav. NEWSMEN CHASED An angry Italian mob beat up a British writer and stripped his woman companion. The couple had been reading a communist newspaper and apparently were mistaken for Yugoslavs. American correspondents were chased by the same mob. One correspondent was knocked down, then stoned by young Italians as he ran for shelter. British Brig. W. Johnson’s car was stoned. Another mob halted a Col. Kilibordo.' Yugoslav chief liaison officer to the American military government, pulled him out of his jeep and manhandled him. Three genades were thrown into a cafe on the outskirts of Trieste, injuring one man seriously. Reports from Pola. the former Italian city turned over to the Yugoslavs under j the peace treaty, said two Yugoslav i officers who arrived to take over the administration tomorrow were roughed up by a gang of youths. Graduates to Face German Exams The Graduate School announces that a German examination for the doctor's degree will be held tomorrow at 4:15 p. m. in the German offices in Bridge hall. Other examinations will be held on Thursday, Oct. 23. and Thursday, Dec. 11, also in tlie German offices in Bridge hall. Permits must be secured in the Graduate School office. 160 Administration, before taking the examinations.

Trojans Report on USNSA Meet Tell Plan of New Student Group Shakeup on Wampus Staff Brings New Style^Humor Promising the students of SC an inexhaustible supply of humor, humor, and more humor, the Wampus, formerly a trade journal for the members of the College of Undertaking, was yesterday formally inaugurated as a college humor magazine in an impressive dedication ceremony. Announcing the complete revision of policy, Willie the Wampusbird made a short speech. “In keeping with the new atomic age and new long skirts for women,” he said in part, “we are planning to specialize in atomically funny stories and skirt around anything that savors of the serious.” f New staff members for the coming semester were revealed during the mammoth demonstration held in the Wampus office, and farewell speeches were made by the outgoing staff. Last semester’s staff included Al Hix, editor; Art Buchwald,. managing editor; Bud Masters, movie editor; Al Rudoff, music editor; and Jim Mount, Bob Jones, and John Harris, staff artists. Under the new slogan of “Be Funny Even If It Kills You!” a sparkling fall staff will take over. New members will include Al Hix, editor; Art Buchwald, managing editor; Bud Masters, movie editor; Al Rudoff, music editor; and Jim Mount, Bob Jones, and John Harris, staff artists. He is continually searching for new talent, writers cartoonists, and other funny people are always welcome in the magazine’s new, constricted quarters. He also announced that all staff members are asked to attend a meeting in 404 Student Union tomorrow at 3. University of Wisconsin Hosts 400 Colleges at National Conference Five Trojans returned last week from the constitutional convention of the United States National Stldent association at the University of Wisconsin and awaited ASSC senate ratification, nl’essary before SC can join the fast-growing student organization. The USNSA. f$rmerly the National Student Organization, adopted the new constitution and will opers£e on a provisional basis until the new document is approved by a majority of the 400 colleges and um- New Leave Plan Announced by VA Officials Say Ixpedition of Checks Assured, Schedule CaH| for Annual 15 Day Leave versities represented at Madison. 800 ATTEND Milt Dobkin.

Hotel room rental advances of 25 per cent above the June 30 level were provided in the control ordinance which expires Oct. 1. Florida Hurricane JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Sept. 15—(UP)—Residents began evacuating four playground beaches outside Jacksonville tonight as a booming hurricane pointed its nose of destruction straight at this Atlantic port of 200,000 population. Weather bureau experts said the most endangered area on the hurricane’s present course extended from around Melbourne, Fla., 170 miles to the south, Savannah, Ga„ 130 miles to the north. Senator Taft CLEVELAND, Sept. 15—(UP)—In a bitterly-phrased resolution, the Ohio CIO council today demanded the resignation of Sen. Robert A. Taft and said “millions of eager citizens” would sign petitions asking the Ohio Republican senator and potential presidential candidate to quit. At its ninth annual state convention here, the council charged Taft with “dis-service to Ohio and the nation,” on the subsistence ro|s without a break, provided there Jire no more than 15 days between.^terms. Veterans who do ij&t want the automatic 15 days ler.ve, which is charged against theii> entitlement, must notify VA at lea;- 30 days before the end of the si?iool year or other period of enrollment. COLLEGES TO CERTIFY VA is encouraging b p institutions of higher learning to certify enrollments of veterans for fie full school year and accept the, Obligation of notifying VA promptly’ of veterans interrupting their training at any tme before the end of the year.

In such cases, subsists.’;e payments will end on the date ‘raining was interrupted. * No leaves other than tlie automatic 15 day extension at. the end of the school year will be granted veteran students with the exception of the scholastic leaves offered by the educational institution?,; to other students. * “Fight on for old SC, our men fight on to victory.” Troy s maroon-clad Trojan band, 180 strong, begins another season under a new director, Clarence E. Sawhill. with the opening kickoff of the Washington State game September 27. Mr. Sawhill, who replaces Bill Gould last year's mentor, comes to SC with nine years experience as assistant band director at the University of Illinois. He received his A.B. from Bethany College. Linds-borg. Kansas, and his Masters Degree from Illinois University. EXPENSE-PAID TRIP Big item on the bandsmen's roster this season will be an expense paid trip to the “Cal” game Oct. 25. Reminders of last year’s Stanford trip have produced a high degree of pre-game spirit for the future jaunt. Last , year's., drum., major,.. Tom Walker, and drummer Fred McCail. have forsaken the sound of flowing flutes, and marching feet. They're both playing football for Jeff this year and hope to hit the field before and after half-time; a change for the better they hope. SPORT NEW UNIFORMS The band, last year’s “Toast to the Coast,” not to be outdone by the latest trends in fashion, has new uniforms in which the torso is even more so. Practice will be held in Cinema 9, and auditioning of prospective members will continue throughout the week, according to Mr. Sawhill. “Openings are still available,” he said, “and students^ trying out need not be members of the music department.” New President Interviewed by DT Despite Clamor of Alteration Crew The first thing you notice about Dr. Fred D. Fagg Jr. is the strength and firmness of his features. His strong jaw fits in well with the impression created by his large but well proportioned build. Dr. Fagg is a strong man. both physically and in personality. There is no escaping that fact. Phone repairmen were working in and out of his office yesterday as he talked to a Daily Trojan representative. With the utmost calm, Dr. Fagg handled pressing routine business and the minutiae of telephone testing. He seemed to be capable of infinite reserve end ability to go on unheeding in the center of somewhat chaotic conditions. When asked about the difference between SC's campus as it stands today and as it was during his previous tenure here in 1927-28, Dr. Fagg said that the change in the intervening years has been positively amazing. He saluted Chancellor Rufus B. von KleinSmid and other administration leaders for their foresight in expanding campus facilities . Troy's new president added that the main problem in the coming years will be to keep up with the great strat* on buildings, faculty, and administration occasioned by the permanent expansion ol college education in this count.*,/. “I found out about Svi’s size when I parked my car this ilorning,” he added. i One building which vas not on the local scene when Dr. Fagg last saw SC has now beccjine a landmark among institution..' of its kind: the University library. The new president explained his desire to see a new program of exp. ision in library facilities: , “Our library is knowi all over the United States for its iiae, beauty, and accommodation*, What we need now is an increase in the number of books and the means of circulating them more rapidly.” Dr. Fagg expressed interest in student government at SC. He recalled that campus politics at Northwestern, where he served as vice-president and dean of faculties, fell into much the same patterns as do Troy’s. Such patterns, he feels, must be universal, since they probably serve a purpose in expressing the views of both organized and nonorganized students. At Northwestern. Dr. Fagg explained, living groups are designed (Continued on Page Four) JOHN HOUK • . . conventional 800 delegates from other school* j were present. The provisional government of the USNSA will be operated on a temporary basis by virtue of the executive committee, composed of 27 regional chairmen into which the country is divided. A proportional representation amendment was adopted by the convention which gave regions haring more than 55,000 students two representatives against one for the smaller regions. The California-Nevada segment elected two men to the executive committee, Dick Heg-gie. UC. and Dick Hough, UCLA PANELS FORM Three panels on student problems j and activities were organized while | the session met to study certain ; problems of American students. The first of these, student govern-| ment and its problems, had Wild-; man and Dobkin participating tor SC. Diane Lockhart and John Houk represented Troy on the international student afiairs panel. Th? third panel was education and its opportunities. Membersliip in the USNSA was restricted to student bodies of colleges and universities and no other groups will be allowed to participate. ALM TO REPRESENT The aim of the group is to represent opinions of students in the United States, aud to represent this country abroad in its dealings with foreign schools. Another major aim Is to set policy to solve student needs and problems which might arise in post-war education. All of Troy’s delegates were unanimous in their praise of the group's work and cooperation between the universities represented at Madision. SERIOUS PROJECT “It is one of the linest movements ever to originate on any campus.” said Miss Lockhart. “The attitude of the men and women attending the conference was one of seriousness and a desire for cooperation between the schools of this nation in facing the growing problems of our time '* The primary purpose of the convention was to ratify the proposed constitution, which it did almost unanimously, abolish the temporary steering committee and appoint the new executive committee of the USNSA. Both of the latter two were also accomplished. National headquarters for the group is to be located on the Wisconsin campus, but the annual convention will be rotated throughout the states.
