Members of the Troy Camp Committee will make an appeal to all living groups, including fraternities, sororities and dormitories, to pledge their support as individual groups co-chairman Dianne Riley said. Last night, 40 of last summer's Troy Campers visited the Row. They were guests for dinner at the various fraternity and sorority houses. Members of the committee spoke in be half of the fund drive at campus living groups. Troy Camp receives half of its funds from the living groups, Miss Riley said. This week, fraternities and sonorities received letters containing pledge cards and information concerning Troy Camp activities. The committee has set a goal of $60 per house, the approximate cost of sending one child Navy Corps Will Accept Applications Applications for the annual physical examination of men interested in the Navy Reserve Officer Training Corps must be submitted to 101 PE by Friday, Lt. JG Robert L. Gabriel son, announced yesterday. An examination, which enables qualified men to enter the Navy on equal footing with Naval Academy graduates, will be given Dec. 8, he said. The Navy will pay tuition, provide free books and uniforms and allot $600 per year for four years to men who pa^s the examination and enlist. Lt. Gabrielson urged unmarried male citizens between the ages, of 17 and 21 to participate in the program. The program can lead to n commission as ensign in the U. S. Navy or its reserve, or second lieutenant in the' Marine Corps or its reserve, he explained. Although it may lead to a naval career, the NROTC program is not organized as a professional curriculum; and students in t h e program do not major in naval science. Students choose their own college or professional schools in the university, what degree they will seek and within certain limits, their own major field of study. There is also a program for “contract” students, wishin neither financial assistance nor s career in the service. They will be available as reserve officers in time of emergency. to camp. The number of children that may attend the camp is determined only by the amount of money collected. This year's goal is to have a substantial increase to support two one-week sessions with 90 children each. Saturday, more than 100 campers will view movies of last summer's activities and will be taken on a tour of the campus. From here they will be escorted to the Coliseum, where they will be guests in USC Changes Get Comment In Newsweek A university in transition cannot depend on graduate students alone, a full-page story on USC in this week's issue of Newsweek magazine concludes. The story, which appears on the newsstands today, describes President Topping’s efforts to disprove “the USC image of a magnolia-studded athletic factory where excellence is measured by yards-per-carry rather than grades-per-class.” The article said within months after Dr. Topping became president, he “had launched a rejuvenation program called ‘University in Transition.’ ’’ Since the program has gone into effect, several achievements have been made, the article noted. Last spring's overall scholastic average was the highest in USC history, faculty salaries have been increased and the university’s endowment has increased. USC’s problem, the article noted, is whether “the image is changing as fast as the university public-relations department would like to believe.” The magazine cited the problem the university has coexist-! ing with the 24 public junior colleges and 5 four-year state colleges that are within a 50-mile radius of the" USC campus. “A great institution needs to more than turn out M.A.’s and Ph.D.’s” the article said. “But Dr. Topping’s rejuvenation program has just begun. USC is still a university in transition.” the rooting section at the USC-Navy football game. During halftime, containers will be passed through the rooting section for those wishing to make final contributions Other money-making schemes this year included the selling of press books at $1 each. Some of the proceeds from Songfest in May will also go towards the Troy Camp fund. This year for the first time the Troy Camp booth won a trophy in Troy Jubilee. A sec ond place award was given to their kissing booth, which net ted the committee $60. The booth was under the direction of Janet Harris and Dan Stewart. Troy Camp, a completely student sponsored and operated project, enabled 120 underprivileged youngsters to attend Camp Buckhom near Idyllwild for one week last August. Half of the children were selected by the Eastside Boys Club, while others came from elementary schools in the USC neighborhood. The children, all between the ages of 8 and 12, are able to participate in activities such as hiking, swimming, riding, games and devotions at the camp. Asia's Role To Be Told A talk on the strategic position of Asia by three cold war analysts from Stanford University’s Hoover Institution on War, Revolution and Peace will be given tonight at the Biltmore Hotel. A caravan of students will leave from the International Student House at 7 to attend the meeting. David Chanaiwa and Mike Tirado are co-chairmen of the Visiting Dignitaries Committee, which is planning the visit to the World Affairs Council meeting. Dr. Stefan Possony, Dr. Peter Duignan and Dr. Y. I. Wu, will speak to the World Affairs Council. The council hosts many international diplomats when they are in Los Angeles. Unbeaten USC Edges Alabama In Grid Ratings By JERRY WILCOX Daily Trojan Sports Editor USC was chosen the No. 1 college football team In the nation yesterday by United Press International's Board of Coaches. In its weekly poll released only this morning, UPI named John McKay’s Trojans to the coveted top spot in a tight race over second-place Alabama. The Trojans out-pointed the Crimson Tide, 311* 299, and received 16 first-place votes to Alabama's 15. Last week’s No. 1 team, Northwestern, dropped to a tie with Minnesota for seventh after losing to Wisconsin, 37-6’. Meanwhile, the Associated Press weekly poll gave Alabama a slight edge over Troy. The AP ratings handed the Crimson Tide 22 first-place votes to USC’s 17 and 455 total points to 44’ for the Trojans. The week’s UPI rating read as follows: 1. Team USC (16) 2. Alabama (15) , 3. Mississippi (3) 4. Wisconsin (2) , 5. Texas............

Áir Force Missile Exhibit To Launch Services Week Exhibition of the 47-foot-long Bomare surface to air guided missile and other Air Force equipment will kick off a four-day AMS Armed Forces Week program beginning today, AMS President Hal Stokes said yesterday. "The week will familiarize students with their military obligations and inform them of the alternatives available to them,” Stokes explained. Six-man squads from the Air Force, Marines, National Guard and Navy, will each have a day to recruit applicants ' for their Balky Burro Ends Fourth; Student Wins Grubstake' Law Croup To Take Bids Applications for membership in Blackstonians. the national pre-legal honorary, must be turned in to 420 FH before Dec. 1, Bob Flaig, the group’s president, announced yesterday. Blackstonians is designed to acquaint pre-law students with the field and to help them prepare for law school. Membership in Blackstonians is based on grades and campus activities. A 3.0 grade average is required. By JERE GRAY Mike Kantzer may or may not appreciate burros after his recent weekend experience with them. Kantzer, who is the president of Delta Tau Delta fraternity, competed against an open field of burro racers Saturday and finished fourth. For his effort, Kantzer won a “grubstake” — a bag of groceries and a fifth of Jim Beam whisky. The event was the annual Burro Flapjack Sweepstakes at Stove Pipe Wells, Death Valley National Monument. Every year, a field consisting of novices and season prospectors alike enter competition to see who can handle a burro better. The entrants had to pack their equipment on a burro, ride, lead or do anything else to get the burro around the 200-yard course, unload, light a fire, cook some flapjacks and persuade the burro to eat one. This is harder than it sounds since most burros are slow-thinking beasts and often stop dead in their tracks, refusing to budge for anything. For Kantzer, the stubborn beast performed true to form. “We were leading going into the stretch, “Kantzer said. “Then the burro just quit. There was nothing much I could do. so I just led him in circles till he didn't know where he was going, and then I led him in. About half the field didn’t finish the race.” USCs last year’s entrant, Karl Stahl, couldn’t get his burro to budge and didn’t finish. All the equipment for making flapjacks was provided, and Texas-born Kantzer had no trouble in this department, having made several pack trips said. “I had no trouble getting the burro to eat,” he said. “He ate them right up. I even ate a couple.” Kantzer, a petroleum engineering student, became interested in the event through one of his teacheis. Dr. Thomas Clements, professor of geology and head of the department, was the director of the event this year, and persuaded Kantzer to enter. Kantzer got plenty of advice from many sources, including, no doubt, his fraternity brothers. However, he thinks the best came from Dean of Students William H. McGrath, who he said told him, “Better bump heads with him, Mike, and knock him out. Then carry him around the course.” to the mountains. Although Kantzer didn’t take ‘I mixed the flapjacks with,Dean McGrath’s advice, he still my lingers,” the Delt president ¡did pretty well. particular officer candidate school. The Bomarc on display is the largest missile of its kind, and is capable of carrying a nuclear warhead. A complicated television setup will be the main attraction of the Marine exhibit on Wednesday, Stokes said. Trojans will view students at Claremont Mens College who will be peering back through a television set on the Claremont campus. A Howitzer medium-sized gun and a mannequin suit will also be on display. Tanks and motion pictures will be brought on Thursday by the National Guard, a voluntary branch of the service. Students are expected to question representatives on the conditions and procedures involved in the President’s calling out the guard, Stokes said. The Navy Polaris missile will be seen on Friday. This service is scheduled to present its case last because a special appeal Is to be made the following day during half-time of the USC-Navy game in the Coliseum. Thousands of Navy men will stage a show on the field to stimulate interest in their branch. The activities are under the supervision of chairman Mike Jacobson.

Louisiana State................. 70 The Trojans, in the midst of their finest season since the 1932 days of the Thundering Herd, were ranked third by UPI last week and second by AP. John McKay’s team, called the West’s best in many years, rolled over its seventh straight victim Saturday when it thrashed Stanford, 39-14. Bear Bryant’s Alabama team is now 8-0 after trouncing Miami, 36-3, over the weekend. The first-place rating marked the climax to a season-long climb up the ladder for the Trojans, who weren’t even listed in the top 10 at the outset. The UPI poll also named two other West Coast teams in the top 20. Oregon was rated 11th and Washington 13th. In addition to Northwestern, two other Big Ten teams were listed by UPI—Wisconsin, fourth and Minnesota, tie for seventh. Trailing Alabama and USC in the AP list were Mississippi, Wisconsin, Texas, Missouri, Arkansas, Minnesota, Northwestern and Louisiana State in that order. What makes the UPI rating even more Impressive is the fact that only seven seniors populate the three Trojan units. McKay’s men have already clinched at least a tie for the AAWU championship with only cross-town rival UCLA having a shot left at the Rose Bowl. The Brians have lost only one conference game, and could conceivably deadlock the Trojans by up- (Continued on Page 4) Representative to Recruit For Peace Corps Project Ocean Films To Be Run Underwater movies of laii-mals on the Southern California Coast and the South Pacific will be shown today by marine zoologist Robert Given at 4:15 in Geology A, 855 W. 37th St. Given said one of the 8 mm color films, taken from 1957 to 1959, shows reef animals of the Southern Califoma Coast.
