Dean of the School of Education BWOCs Hobnob At Dean's Social For women who enjoy sipping tea I and hobnobbing with BWOCs.Helen I Hall Moreland, dean of women, is | presenting a series of get-acquainted, informal socials. Guests each week are AWS orientation captains and their groups of big and little sisters. Today’s event will honor new women under the I guidance of captains Beth Aspen, j Jean Strands, and Marilyn Wolf. | Fifty students are expected to attend the affair which will be held from 3:30 to 5 p.m. at Dean More-I land’s home, 652 West 35th street. Special guest of the afternoon will be Miss Maisry MacCracken, daughter of former Vassar Presi-’ dent, Dr. Henry MacCracken. Frustrated Grid Fans, Those Needing Retakes Face Camera Monday Frustrated would-be activity ticket buyers who felt that they were given a “fast shuffle” when sales were shut off last Thursday will have one final day to complete their purchases. Art Waldinger, the photographer, will make the last of his “last” appearances on the campus next Monday from 2 to 3 p.m. He will be on the first floor of Elisabeth von KieinSmid hall. Although the cameraman’s return will provide an opportunity for the initial purchase of tickets, he was called back mainly to accommodate retakes. The original list of students needing double-takes included claim numbers 279 through 284, 658 thiough 898, 1844, 1845, 1846, and 2080. The holders of these numbers must be photographed again on Monday if they have not had their second session in front of the kleigs. Retakes must have their original claim check when they report. Initial purchasers should have their fee bills, and, incidentally, $13.50. These ducats will be processed in time for the Rice game. All-Frosh Dance Details Hidden There is going to be an all-frosh dance and get-together tomorrow afternoon. However, details concerning it have been deliberately shrouded in mystery. The sophomores planning the event just won’t talk! Bill Dineen, sophomore Hass president, explained yesterday that BILL DINEEN . . . secrets volunteers* from the sophomore class are planning the semester’s initial frosh dance to give the new freshman council an opportunity to become organized. “Although I am not at liberty to release any of the details at this time,” Dineen said, in what he apparently hoped was his most mysterious manner, “a great deal of time and effort is going into the attempt to make the dance an affair that freshmen will long remember.” Dineen urged freshmen not to make plans for tomorrow afternoon if at all possible. A reliable source of information, who desires to remain anonymous, hinted that there is even surprise entertainment on the schedule. Helping Dineen with the plans are Kay Burnham, Elwood Houseman, Ward Lewis, George Prussel, and Calvin Schmidt. Get Paid Nov. 1, Libby Tells Vets Veterans attending the university under federal law will receive their first subsistence allowance checks about Nov. 1. The Veterans administration requires approximately two months each year to set its files in order befcre the checks are put in the mail. Dr. Philip A. Libby, director of veterans affairs at SC, said yesterday. Launched last April, the 110-foot, all-steel, diesel-powered Velero IV is shown in action, equipped from stem to stem with the latest and best navigational aides in the country. Hancock Discloses Research Program Arnew research and engineering program which will combine the facilities of the Hancock foundation, the College of Aeronautics at Santa Maria, and the new marine laboratory ship, Velero IV, was revealed today by Capt. Allan Hancock, director of the Allan Hancock Foundation for Scientific Research. a---- The purpose of the project, em- IFC Committee Invites Women bracing work on land, sea, and in the air, is to conduct exploratory, developmental, and fundamental research projects for government and industry. “From test tubes and tomes, science has gone mechanical,” says Captain Hancock. “Working tools of the researcher today range from infinitely delicate instruments to enormous cyclotrons,” ne continued. “We are now equipped and manned to carry on with plans formulated long before the war. It is our purpose to serve in the fields for which we are best qualified, and on a non-profit basis.” FOUNDATION MODERN The Hancock foundation, erected on SC’s main campus in 1939, has 105,000 square feet of floor space. The earthquake-proof, fire-proof building houses such valuable instruments as an electron microscope, electronic and X-ray laboratories, photomicrographic equipment, and a low-pressure chamber. Hancock field, one of the oldest flying fields in the west, was built in 1928. Since then it has greatly expanded and now covers more than 210 acres. The College of Aeronautics has 72 airplanes of different types for the eager engineering students to study and is a CAA-approved flight and ground school. NAVIGATIONAL AIDS The Velero IV has already completed one scientific voyage since its launching last April. The ship is equipped with the newest navigational aids and a variety of laboratories suited to marine exploration. Captain Hancock explained one project being undertaken as an example of the work being done. Marine geologists wanted an instrument capable of removing cores from the ocean bottom. Engineers at the College of Aeronautics successfully made the equipment and it will be installed on the Velero IV. Girl Pianist, 15, To Give Recital Fifteen-year-old Esther Lee Kaplan will give a piano recital at 8:00 tonight in Bo w e n hall. Miss Kaplan was one of the winners in the Gainsborough institute contest last year, for which she received $500, and has been a special student of John Crown, professor of piano, for three years. The recital will open with Toccata in B Major, Bach, and Sonata in B Minor, Chopin. Sorority women, ignored in the past in selecting fraternity-backed student office seekers., have been invited to attend the IFC’s political policy committee meeting this afternoon at 4 in the Sigma Chi house. Discussion will continue at that time on the much debated question of student political endorsements by the Interfraternity council. Attempts will be made to canvass the women’s opinion on the formulation of a Political Action committee, ostensibly unrelated to the IFC, but composed solely of fraternity and sorority members. According to political policy committee President Ralph Townsend, the committee, if formulated, will function as a nominating body to review the merits of possible Row-backed candidates in future school elections. NROTC Calls For Applicants Applications to take examinations for the NROTC training program must be made by Nov. 15. The tests are being given throughout the nation Dec. 11. The program is open to men 17 through 21 who have completed The first edition of the Sea-chart, official publication of the NROTC unit, appeared Monday. Editor Harold Durrett, with a six-man staff, is short of news and feature writers. Students interested in helping with the new paper can contact him in 101 Physical Education. high school, and to college freshmen and sophomores. Those passing the test are offered a four-year college course, a $50 monthly subsistence allowance, and a commission in the Navy or Marine corps upon graduation. Last year 2400 applications were selected to attend their choice of the 52 universities in the program. Additional information may be obtained at the NROTC office, 101 Physical Education building. Good Trip Promised SC Grid Travelers Pettengill Tells Appalling Cost Of Atomic War The staggering cost of defense in a war involving use of atomic weapons was discussed yesterday by Dr. Robert B. Pettengill, director of the teaching institute of economics. He said that if an atom war is assumed to be possible, then preparations must be made for both aggression and defense. Expenditure for research and development of atomic weapons will be great, about $2 million a year added to the present tax burden, and hundreds of millions more will be necessary for developing means of spreading atom explosives and radioactive dust on the enemy. Billions will be required for putting vital military installations underground. A sum greater than the total for aggressive war would be necessary, however, for civilian defense. PROTECT CIVILIANS “Full preparation for atomic war requires that much be done to protect civilians,” Dr. Pettengill said. “It is for them, presumably, that the war is fought. The lessons of Hiroshima and Nagasaki show that a nation may be defeated by an attack on its civilian rear, even though armies in the field are still strong.” If there is to be an atom war, industrial and trade centers have to be decentralized, tne professor pointed out. This involves large-scale moving of factories away from major cities, and moving many millions of workers along with the plants. BACK TO THE CAVE Atom war preparation will be especially expensive since most vital industries will have to go underground. These plants cannot operate without workers. However, since the psychological problems accompanying return to a cave life would be great, little is likely to be spent on underground housing projects in the very near future. “The tax burden (for both programs) added to our present taxes would be quite painful. That is one reason why we are unlikely to acknowledge the logical implications for our future lives of the unleashing of atomic energy,” Dr. Pettengill said. Preparation for an atomic war would also have important indirect economic results. Production costs for many consumer articles would be increased because of the uneconomic location of industries after their decentralization. Senate Okays IR Prexy; Tirebiter To Be Paroled Promises of the “best available equipment” for the Stanford football trip, the approval of George Moore as IR president, and the Trojan Knights as officially responsible for the actions of George Tirebiter, came out of the ASSC Senate meeting yesterday afternoon. *-- Reporting for the special transportation committee, Larry Bub, the committee chairman, cheerfully said that in a meeting with the Southern Pacific railroad representatives ha had been assured of improved travel accommodations for the northern trip. Present plans call for a “snack LARRY BUB * . . bubbling bar” and a dance car, according to Bub. Bub’s committee will inspect the train along with a SP inspector the afternoon before departure. MOORE APPROVAL George Moore moved into the presidency of International Relations with the Senate’s approval of the rules report. Milt Dobkin, rules committee chairman, recommended that Moore be approved inasmuch as neither of two IR constitutions had been approved by the ASSC Senate. The top IR office became vacant when Dick Barton resigned the post. The position of Moore, vice-president, was confused because the two constitutions were in conflict on the succession of office. TIREBITER UNDECLARED The motion by Knight President Morey Thomas that the Knights be officially responsi’rle and financially liable for the actions of George Tirebiter was unanimously approved. Tirebiter, recently impounded by the Department of Animal Regula tions, would have faced the possibility of being declared a “stray dog” if no one took official re sponsibility for .him. George will be released Friday. Noted Soloists To Make Debut With Ensemble Today s Headlines By United Press Gasoline Shortage Eases Western motorists tonight were assured by the strike-bound oil industry of virtually all the gasoline they need during October. A. C. Stewart, chairman of the industry’s allocation committee, said the October supply would be 90 per cent of the pre-strike July level. Ferguson Denies Charge WASHINGTON, Sept. 28—Sen. Homer Ferguson, R., Mich, today dismissed as “damn lies” charges by Sen. Elmer Thomas, D., Okla., that he and his family received expensive gifts paid for by Michigan corporations. He said the charges were made in a letter to him from Thomas which threatened exposure if Ferguson pursued his inquiry of market speculation by Thomas and his wife. Belgian Accuses Red Spies PARIS, Sept. 28—Russia has fifth columns in every United Nations country which make Adolf Hitler’s Nazis look like boy scouts, Premier Paul-Henri Spaak of Belgium told the UN assembly today. Defending the Western European alliance which Russia complains is aimed against her, Spaak accused the Soviet Union of every possible violation of good faith in her international relations. Four soloists are to appear at the first fall concert of the Hancock ensemble tonight at 8:30 in Hancock auditorium. They are George-Ellen Ferguson. soprano radio artist; Mildred Seymour, pianist; Lisa Minghetti, who has appeared with leading European and American orchestras; and Catherine Jackson, harpist. Offerings on the program include “Concerto Grosso in B minor,’* Handel; “L’amero, saro constante,” from “II re pastore,” Mozart; “Di. vertimento in D,” Mozart: Air from “Achilles,” Donne: “Three Miniatures,” Pick-Mangiagalli; “W e 1 c h Air and Variations," Thomas; Waltz from “Romeo and Juliet,’* Gounod; and “Le Polichenelle,’* Villa-Lobos. SEATS AVAILABLE Admission to the concert is free of charge, and reserved seat tickets may be obtained in Hancock hall. This concert marks the opening of the fall season for the Hancock ensemble. Well-known to music circles of California for many years, the ensemble is devoted to the increasing of musical appreciation for the world’s outstanding composers. Under the direction of Capt. Allan Hancock, who is also cellist for the ensemble, the organization has made appearances on many radio programs in addition to playing for civic groups, schools, colleges, and during the war, many West Coast training camps. CITATION AWARDED For this latter work the ensemble was awarded the Distinguished Service cication by the Music War Council of America. Sponsored by the Allan Hancock foundation, the ensemble includes artists whose solo presentation* with leading orchestras in this country and Europe have attracted much attention from music lovers. The majority of the chamber music concerts include numbers especially arranged for instrumentation from more than 10,000 original scores in the Hancock library. Future musical events planned for SC by the Hancock foundation include a second concert by the Hancock ensemble Oct. 20, and a concert by the Hancock foundation trio Oct. 27. Book Service To Be Ended Last call for veterans wishing to use the services of the Trovet Textbook exchange was issued today. “Friday will absolutely be the day for the exchange,” s ai d Gloria von Gemmingen, secretary of the textbook exchange committee. Hundreds of books of all kinds have been listed as available at the The board of directors of Trovets will meet at 2:15 p.m. in 318 Student Union. Applicants for the three board vacancies will be interviewed at that time. .All Trovets are invited. exchange office in 405 St5udent Union “and we would like to place as many as possible before the closing date.” she added. Veterans who nave already listed books needed by them are urged to re-check the exchange’s lists, as many new texts have recently been added. Others who have not yet checked with the exchange and are still in need of books may find them there.
