Callers Curse Neophyte Verse Singing telegram boys needing a lesson or two should hear the bird-like trillings of the kiddies of Theta Xi. A telephone call placed to the Theta Xi house yesterday was answered by Neophyte Archie Taugue in the following doggerel to a tune only faintly resembling “Ramblin’ Wreck From Georgia Tech”: Theta Xi fraternity, We love with all our heart, Harry Cook’s our president, And he is very smart. I’m a lonely neophyte, A lowly worm am I . . . Etc., etc., ad nauseam, for five minutes or so. Says Archie: “I’m 22, but I don’t feel that old.” Prospect 69674. Maybe it’s fun to be young. . Up to this time, there has been little discussion of the plan which cut sorority pledge classes this semester through limiting each house to a certain number of pledges. “NO QUOTA SYSTEM” According to Connie Hug, Panhellenic president, there is no quota system. It is a system of equalization designed to build up the small sororities by limiting the number of pledges large houses can take. Under this system it was planned to ultimately give each sorority a maximum of 55 members. During the last rush season each sorority was told how many new members they wrould be allowed to pledge in an attempt to work toward this end. It was the contention of some sororities that some of the rushees might have dropped out of rush week because of the equalization system. It was felt that knowing some houses could only take an extremely limited number, or could not pledge at all, the women did not want to pledge believing that they could not get their chosen house. The equalization system functions under the theory that a woman, upon not receiving her first choice, by having indicated her second and third choices on a Panhellenic preference card would be pledged to one of those houses. This will help the small houses to get pledge classes somewhat, more equal to those of the large houses. DID IT HELP? The first question raised was, •‘Did equalization help?” In answer, Mrs. Dean Johnson. Panhellenic alumni adviser, quoted figures stating that rthe average size of a house was raised from 35 to 45 members. She declared that all houses were now nearer to the desired number than they were before. The question was raised as to who fulfilled their quota. Mrs. Johnson, while not revealing who did, stated that out of 16 houses that rushed, 9 fulfilled their quotas, while 7 did not. “It must be considered, also, that the small houses had larger quotas to be filled than the large houses, and that they naturally could not have filled them because there were not that many girls going through,” declared Mrs. Johnson. It was argued by representatives of several large houses, that while the system might possibly help the smaller houses, it would do so at the expense of the larger ones. SYSTEM MUST STAY It was emphasized at this point that the equalization system had been installed for a year by the Panhellenic council and that while it might be amended, it could not be done away with. A collegiate rush committee was finally set up to effect an improvement of the existing system. Pros on the committee are Delta Delta Delta, Kappa Delta, Zeta Tau Alpha, and Phi Sigma Sigma. They will attempt a compromise with Cons to the issue, Alpha Chi Omega. Kappa Alpha Theta. Alpha Gamma Delta, and Alpha Phi. HI YA! Band to Greet Homecoming SC Gridders “The band and Trojan Knights will be at the station to greet SC's football team when it returns from Ohio State,” Morey Thomas, president of the Knights, told Knight members at a meeting Wednesday nigiht. “Complete details of the program to welcome back our team have not been worked out, because we do not know as yet the exact time of the train's arrival,” he said.* Morey also informed the Knights that they were responsible for the care, maintenance, and repair of George Tirebiter. He said there was a probability that George would be housed on the campus, but nothing was definite. A new plan for expediting seating of students at football games was adopted as W’ell as a new fight song “Carry On,” written by Tom Cosgrove and Gene Fruhling. Lighting of torches, booing, and rowdy conduct of students at games were discussed and it was decided that “extreme” penalties would be meted out to those students. Decline in efficiency of - card stunts at the last game was attributed to student carelessness in knocking the cards off seats while getting seated. Solon Says Revamp Court System to Prosecute Spies WASHINGTON, Sept. 30—(IP)—Rep. John McDowell, R., Pa., of the House un-American Activities committee today said the American judicial system must be changed to enable prosecution of atomic spies. Under the existing trial system, he told reporters, it is practically impossible to try anyone for atomic espionage without risking the disclosure of secret information. McDowell did not Gffer any specific proposals for changing the trial procedure established in the constitution. But he said the rules of evidence will have to be revised so that an accused atomic spy can be brought to trial without breaching security regulations or destroying the fairness of the American courts. His statement apparently was prompted by the announced refusal of the Justice department to prosecute three men and a woman accused by the House committee of trying to steal wartime atomic secrets for Russia. The four named are Atomic Scientists Clarence Francis Hiskey and John Hitchcock Chapin, Marcia Sand, Hiskey’s ex-wife, and Communist Party Official Steve Nelson. University to Erect $50,000 Building Erection of a $50,000 permanent steel building to house the Operation and Maintenance department and afford temporary classroom space was announced by the Finance committee of the University Board of Trustees yesterday noon. Construction of the building, which will be located on 35th street between McClintock a n d^—-- Trovets Move To SU Balcony Shoving pigeons aside, the Trovets have moved their office equipment onto the fourth-floor Student Union balcony. The move was made to alleviate the crowded condition in 405 Student Union, which the Trovets formerly shared with the Debate squad and Council of Religion. “Quart-sized 405 wras too crowded for any of the three groups to work, so we took our desks to the balcony,’’ said Bert Higginbotham, publicity director. “Although a little disturbed in the beginnings, the pigeons have begun to accept us,” he added. Fresh air. sunshine, and a good view are some of the assets gained by the Trovets move. “Of course, we are at the mercy of the elements, but our office workers are taking vitamins and should survive the weather,” Higginbotham said. Four-sided office space has not been offered the Trovets, so all thoughts of the organization for the future include pictures of feathers. Hoover, is due to begin next week. The structure when completed in mid-December will serve to house divorced Old College classes, particularly the accounting department. As soon as a new building is erected on the OC site, all classes will be transferred out of the 35 th street edifice. Removal of homes in the area has been undertaken to make room for the one-story, aluminum-sided building which will be the permanent home of university repair, carpentry, and construction operations. The Board of Trustees’ move marks the first real step in SC’s gigantic expansion program, which-will ultimately see erection of new and modern office and classroom buildings. Operations and Maintenance is now located on the north side of Old College. Before the switch to the present location it had its headquarters just west of Science building. Adler to Discuss Great Books Dr. Mortimer J. Adler, associate professor of the philosophy of law at the University of Chicago, will speak tonight on the subject, “Why Read the Great Books?” at the Wil-shire-Ebell theater at 8:15. The address is under the auspices of the Great Books foundation. Members of the 60 Great Books discussion groups in the Southland which are beginning their fall programs this month have expressed delight in obtaining Dr. Adler for this lecture A number of SC faculty members and students have been active in the Great Books discussion groups in southern California. Among the faculty members who participated in the leadership training program this summer and will lead discussion groups this fall are Dr. Bruce R. McElderry, associate professor of English language and literature; Dr. Alta B. Hall, associate professor of speech; Dr. Frank C. Wegener, assistant professor of education; and Cloyde D. Dalzell, associate professor of speech. Tonight’s lecturer has worked closely with Chancellor Robert M. Hutchins of the University of Chicago in the formation and growth of the Great Books foundation. This organization is a nonprofit program of adult self-education. More than 38.000 persons made up the 840 groups which had been organized by the first of this year. Many of the great books have been iead and discussed by these groups. Ticket information is available at the Wilshire-Ebell boxoffice, the Southern California Music company, and all Mutual ticket agencies. LAS MORTIMER J. ADLER . . . 100 books . . . petitioners who have filled out and returned their petitions for the LAS council and who have not received word by phone or mail regarding them are asked to report to 401 Student Union today at 1. LAS interim planning committee will meet at the same time and place. Parkers Await Cable Work End Owners of the 50 jalopies who used to get up in the cold dewy mornings in order to park beside the Physical Education building on 36th street will be happy to learn parking space will be available there again Tuesday. An inspector of the telephone company that is laying two new cables under the street said that work will be finished and the street repaired by then. He said the telephone ducts are being laid to expand telephone fa-cilitis in 1949. H promised that his company would do no more plowing up of streets in the near future. Activity Books On Sale Again The sale of student activity ducats, officially closed one week ago, will reopen next Monday. The one day stand positively will be the final opportunity for these purchases. The final day’s shooting will take place from 2 to 8 pjn. cn the first floor of Elisabeth von KieinSmid hall. Since some retakes failed to show for their second shots, it was necessary to recall the photographer for this unscheduled appearance. This group includes students holding claim check numbers 682, 683, 694, 704, 727, 731, 736, 740, 741, 747, 749, 755, 761, 779, 783, 790, 802, 805, 821, 825, 848, 849, 868, 869, 871, 881, 891, 895, 1844, and 1845. Retakes must have their original claim checks with them wrhen they report for their second picture, and initial buyers must present their lee bills along with $13.50. Processed tickets are now ready for those who have already been photographed. Housing Authority Aide to Speak First Graduate School of Religion student-faculty luncheon of this term will be held Tuesday noon, 251 Administration. Frank Wilkinson, special aide to the executive director of the I os Angeles Housing authority, will speak at the luncheon. To supplement the speech, a tour of Los Angeles housing areas will be conducted Thursday afternoon. Reservations for the luncheon may be made in the School of Religion office before Monday noon. Editorial Pause and Reflect Tomorrow is the 79th anniversary of the birth of the late Mohandas K. Gandhi. All over the world diverse groups of every nationality and religion will pause a few moments to pay their respects to the memory of a man who more than any other stood as a symbol of peace to a tortured world. Whatever our personal opinions of Gandhi’s methods or beliefs, it can never be denied that the one eternal thought in his mind was the ultimate brotherhood of man. In his own unorthodox but effective way, Gandhi worked from the moment of his first appearance in public life to further the cause of world peace. To him, in large measure, India and Pakistan today owe the fact of their independence; that these two nations are embroiled in conflict merely illustrates how much less great than he most political leaders are. As the United Nations struggles today to keep its thin hold on the fiction of world unity, as the United States, Great Britain, and France align themselves solidly against Russia, as the little people of the earth, who understand not the machinations of high diplomacy, wait in anxious expectancy for earth’s giants to resolve their difference —today it would be well for all of us to pause and reflect upon the principles of brotherhood for which Gandhi gave his life. Fruehling, PiKA, vice-president; Norman Kern. Tau Delta Phi, secretary; and Herb Sauerman. Phi Sigma Kappa, treasurer. Possibility of obtaining open-air busses to transport Row students to and from school as a measure to ease congested traffic conditions was discussed. TRAFFIC PROBLEM “Too many fraternity and sorority members are driving their cars to school causing traffic tie ups,” stated Parnell Curry, traffic committee head. Formulation of a card file in the coordinator's office to inform incoming students as to their rushing status was a main point presented by Calvin Schmidt to streamline rushing procedures. Schmidt was appointed committee chairman to attempt to revamp and introduce changes in the present rushing system. FACULTY FETE Consideration was given to a faculty day on the Row at which time university professors would be guests of the fraternities for dinner and discussions. Approval of a political activity committee to interview Row applicants for student body offices was tabled until the Panhellenic council could be consulted, reported Ralph Townsend. The committee, if approved would also conduct an all-Row primary before the June elections. CURB ROWDYISM Knight President Morey Thomas urged that fraternities take the lead in a movement to control student conduct in the football rooting section. Don Gevirtz, ZBT, was appointed new IFC athletic manager. Row to Begin Big Trash Plan Greater University committee dis* closed a new plan for disposal at trash and garbage at its meeting yesterday. “A private collector will pick up all trash on the Row at a cost of 50 cents per month per house, “said Bob Flower, member of the committee. The city is being asked to pick up garbage twice a week instead of once a week as they have in the past.” “Garbage, trash, and rubbish piled up in alleyways behind the Row .are creating a menace to health,” he added. City trash collectors pick up only bottles and cans, therefore a private collector is needed to pick up papers, grass cuttings, and other trash, he said. He added that a private collector’s service could be obtained only if all houses on the Row agreed to pay the 50 cents. Means of obtaining street lights in the alleys so that girls could go in their backyards at night also discussed at the meeting. El Rodeo Ready For Reservations All organizations desiring space reservations in the 1949 El Rodeo are advised to fill out space reservation requests and return them to the El Rodeo office, 323 Student Union, as soon as possible. It is the policy of the staff this year to acquire as complete a spread as possible of all campus organizations, said Editor Virgil Lubberden. Letters have been sent to all groups who have appeared in past issues. If organizations exist who desire space reservations and previously have not appeared in the year book, they can obtain blanks at the El Rodeo office. Dental Students Elect Officers The College of Dentistry and the Downtown clinio elected class officers yesterday. Successful candidates for senior class offices were F. S. Johnson, president; Sumner Saul, vice-president; and J. P. Adams, secretary-treasurer. New junior class officers are Frank Ruh, president; Dick Porter, vice-president; and Bob Hamilton, secretary-treasurer. The sophomore class elected Robert Boyd, president; Bernard Lueck, vice-president; and Ronald Jones, secretary-treasurer. Freshman class officers are H. G. Ross, presidendt; W. R. Snyder, vice-president; and D. E. Tannehill, secretary-treasurer.
