A tie between Melva Black and Lyle Trump for the position of secretary-treasurer may necessitate a run-off, or tiie council may decide to separate the office into the two functions.

As Mme. Chiang left aboard a US |ilitary air transport service plane, Chinese general reported that two Ifommun;st armies had launched a ivo-pronged drive from the Suchow line from Pengpu toward Nanking, but did not elaborate on yesterday’s report that the Communist spearhead had reached Chingpaling, only 35 miles from the capital.

PINCERS CLOSE Gen. Tu Yu-Ming, Chinese commander in the Sucnow theater, told United Press Correspondent Joseph Jacob that Communist columns driven south on both flanks of Suchow hud joined forces somewhere south, of the city, creating a new threat to Suchow and to Pen- gpu. Tu declined to indicate where the two armies .had met, but earlier reports indicated that the most likely point was Suhsien, a rail town about halfway between the two Chinese defense bastions.

Judges Scan Glamour, Cut Queen Entries In a solemn atmosphere suggestive of the US Supreme court, five student judges cut the number of Homecoming Queen contestants from 72 tc 35. Action took place last Wednesday in Bovard. Before an audience of more women than men, the beauties filed across the stage and in front of the judges in one-minute time intervals. As the women walked through a spotlight beam on the stage, some paused, some smiled, and others seemed to hurry through "the ordeal." “It’s embarrassing,” said one contestant. QUEEN TO BE BUSY After winners of the first elimination were announced, Dave Evans, chairman of Homecoming Queen committee, explained to the women that the queen will have to forget personal affairs during Homecoming week. She will have such an extensive scale of activities that she ; will have no time of her own, he j said. EARLY WINNERS First elimination winners were: j Randy Allen, Barbara Bates, Lin- j dy Blank, Betty Brown, Pat Cam- ! eron, Betty Clements, Nance Davies, Delores Dietrich, Polly Feil, Diane : Gump.

Blue Key Lays Tapping Plans SC’s chapter of Blue Key, national men’s honorary fraternity, last week planned its annual tapping of new members and discussed removal of the national charter's restriction on membership. Meeting at the Delta Chi house, the organization also went on record as favoring the proposed $10 fee for the improvement of the university’s health services. Tapping and the Blue Key national convention, at which action will be taken on the charter, will take place during the Christmas holidays. Milt Dobkin has been chosen tapping committee chairman. His assistants will be Ed Vierheilig and Jack Shaffer. The committee will prepare a list of students eligible for Blue Key membership. The list will be submitted to the chapter at its next meeting, Dec. 7. Dobkin also reported the student government manual being prepared by the fraternity will be completed by February. He said administration officials in the university have supplied valuable information for the booklet. The SC chapter is aiding students at UCLA and Occidental college in forming chapters for membership in the national organization. The Uclans have indicated they will withhold their application for membership until January to see if I the racial barrier is removed. Occi- I dental’s group may join before Christmas in order to vote against j the barrier. SC members plan to hold a stag j social for their next meeting. Lester j Vlahos, chairman of the program. I has scheduled two motion pictures , of Alaska. by Bob Pike and Jerry Bres The ASSC Senate voted Wednesday night to re-insert the provision for a $10 health fee in its recommendation to the administration for improved and expanded health facilities. The Senate requested that students be given equal voice with the administration in the distribution of any money collected for the health services. *--— ----- The new proposal was made by: Bill Bretz, Blue Key president. Bretz opposed the fee two weeks ago. However, further study oy senate members of the health plan, originally presented by Bob McClymonds, Greater University committee chairman, resulted in a minimum of opposition to its re-intro- | duction. DISCRIMINATION HIT By a vote of 13 to 5 out of 24 present, the Senate approved a res- j olution by Jack Shaffer which gives effect to racial and religious clauses ' in the ASSC constitution. Here Is Shaffer Resolution Vote The ASSC Senate vote on the race and religion resolution was as follows: Jeanne Gard .................... abstained Barbara Potter proxy abstained Grafton Tanquary .................... yes Anne Rose..................proxy gone Wayne Chiappe-------------------------yes George Moore___________________________no Cedric Gerson..................abstained Ben Keeler ___________________________________no Leonard Rudoff_______________________yes Connie Hug ---------------------------- yes Earle Risdon.........proxy abstained Harry Cook.*--------------------------------no Bill Dineen ________.__________________yes Fred Harper------------------------------yes Leonard Johnson......................_...yes Bod Padgett_______________________yes Chet Carter---------------------------yes Lary Bub....................................no Pat McGriff......................abstained Omar Kureishi . yes <by proxy) Betty Ann Smith........................yes Al Hix...........................................yes Dave Saunders.................................®o Hugh Greenup.......................— gone . Don Robertson......proxy abstained Bill Hurt ..................................yes The resolution would require the removal from campus activity of I any honorary, professional, or other | ASSC organization which failed to j provide evidence of attempts to expunge racial or religious qualifita- i tions from its membership require- I ments. It would specifically affect those \ organizations which existed* prior to , the approval of the present ASSC j constitution unless such evidence j was submitted on or before May 1, 1949. It excepts social fraternities and sororities since such groups are not considered ASSC organizations. Sharp criticism was leveled at (Continued on Page 4) Mayor Bowron To Give Queen Keys to City The Mayor says yes! Mayor Fletcher Bowron has agreed to present SC's Homecoming queen with the keys to the city Friday afternoon in a ceremony on the j city hall steps. The presentation will climax a j gigantic campus rally; a caravan of 1 taxies and convertibles will stream : from campus to the city hall cere-i monies. A crowded Friday will commence i when monstrosities from the Row i herald the annual Taxi Day. Th“ J taxies will run from the campus to the Row until the judging at noon. At 1 a helicopter will land on the , campus and Yell King Jack McKee | will step out to take over the rally. The caravan will leave the campus at 1:45. After the safari through ' town and back, the parade will re-! turn to campus at about 3:30 in i time for the float judging from 4 j until 6. Floats will be judged in front of i their respective houses, and must I be complete, including personnel, at ! 4. After the judging, Trojans will gather at the Shrine auditorium for the Notre Dame rally beginning at 7:30. Bob Flower, Greater University committee member, said he wotud i meet with Police Lieutenant Robertson Friday morning to complete plans for the downtown trip. He said the caravan may be Lmited in number of vehicles, in which case the earliest arrivals and best decorated convertibles will be included. The parade will start forming at 1 in the assembly area.

SPIKE JONES . . escee emcee Banqueteers Notre Dame . . . game wlll-cali tickets should be picked up immediately at the ticket office, second floor, Student Union. Grads to Hear Spike, Coaches Spike Jones. leader of the band that makes wacky music, will be master of ceremonies for the 25th annual Alumni Homecoming banquet Friday. Old grads will gather at 6:30 p.m. in the men’s gymnasium to eat turkey and listen to prominent personal ties of the sporting world. Frank Leany. Jeff Cravath. and Eimer “Gloomy Gus’’ Henderson will be among the speakers. KLAC will present a 30-minute broadcast from the banquet. Clowns Enliven Lusty Comedy Moliere without uproarious comedy would be like radio mystery without suspense. The famous French master of the theater lived and thrived in the atmosphere of J Louis XIV grotesqueness and color. His comedies reflect the Mardi Gras aspect of France in his time, and "School for Wives,-’ possibly his masterpiece, plays the lustiness and boisterousness to tht hilt. The task of bringing Moliere’s rollicking humor to the Bovard stage falls largely on Marvin Duck-ler and Louise White. They will play Georgette and Alair in the forthcoming production. Georgette and Alair nominally are servants in Amolphe's household, but they actually are the clowns. Both are country people, with Alair the virtual epitome of the age-old country bumpkin. Duckler and Mrs. White have had experience as comedians. Duckler j played comedy roles at Columbia university and Brooklyn college, where he received his degree. Mrs. White has played for the past three years in lhe Globe theater. San D.ego. Both are graduate students at SC. Duckler has played roles in two comedies, “Spreading the News” and “The Pig Woman,"’ on local stages.
