Kay said that duplicate fee bills may be obtained.

The party’s faculty adviser, Dr. Russell Caldwell, will speak at the convention. Since the debates held before 200 students last Wednesday at EVK-College Hall, campaigning has taken on a new and heated | enthusiasm, with presidential candidates swapping comments and slanders back and forth.

I When the junior women hon orary announced last week that they would formally challenge tlie USC varsity baseball team to an xhibition game, set lor today at 2:30 p.m. on Eov-iid Field, everyone laughed. But the baseball team look them seriously and both Varsity Coach Ro.l Dedeaux and Chimes : Coach Katie Spenser will field j two compete teams in today's game. A letter sent to the Trojan varsity baseball team by the Chimes > a i d that the women would m nd a "full-scale 17-man squad, equipped with tennis rackets, golf clubs, hockey sticks and boy scout signals to meet the team's championship offense.” Coach Dedctux immediately replied, adding that the game would he played under conference rules with one exception.

In his opinion. Appel has been taken in by TRG which in essence is what he calls an “aboveboard from organization, a pseudo-legitimate facade which is attempting to mask the same old subversion that still exists in the shadows.” Helm labels the party as “nothing more than a mechanism and a tool to be used to throw mud legally” at him. In a statement issued to the | Daily Trojan Friday, Helm questioned Appel's independent status. He maintained that Ap- j pel has already commited himself as a pledge to Phi Sigma Kappa. Moon Secrets Unfold Before Week' Group The United States will launch two space craft during the last half of this year to start this count ry’s ten-year program of interplanetary exploration. USC engineering students and professors were told Friday. In addition to landing on the moon, other space vehicles will go to Venus and Mars, said Dr. Albert R. Hibbs. chief of the space sciences division of Caltech’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Dr. Hibbs spoke at an assembly climaxing USC’s annual Engineering Week. Moon's Secrets “Successful development of this exploration program will yield, for example, geophysical and geochemical information about the moon which will help | us to understand not only the nature of our sister planet, but perhaps also something of the origin of the solar system, since the moon may still retain on its surface the 5-billion-year-old re- Answering the charge Larry Young, a leader of TRG, contended that “Helm speaks of mud-slinging with one breath and unloosens a barage of dirt and falsehood with the other.” Young also said that proof could be obtained which shows that Appel has no Greek affiliation. “Appel will accept all support that's given in the spirit of honesty and above-board campaigning,” Young said. “He has accepted TRG support because we agree with his programs and ideas that political groups should operate in the open.” Attacks at Harmon Attacks have not only been made against Appel, but also against Jim Harmon, Junior Class president and a third candidate for the presidency. Speaking at the EVK-College debates. Helm condemned Harmon's V-3 program as ineffective. “It was supposed to ‘Stomp Out the Comedy’ in student government,” Helm explained. “The only thing I can see that Harmon’s leadership program has done -is to stomp out class government.” Harmon issued a statement Friday defending V-3 as a program “not originated to pacify students with TGIFs, but to face the real problems at USC— problems such as our present high school relations, commuter contact and the apathy toward university activities.” Harmon also described Helm j as a number one plagiarist. I “His original platform was meaningless,” Harmon said, j “Now he is trying to incorporate my ideas into his program and establish them as his own.” 1 candidates by an ASSC-ap-I pointed selection board, and a | special meeting of the Board of Inquiry upheld their selection, reported Dr. Robert J. Downey, dean of students. Of these five. Hams and Shankman will run for the office of yell king. Write-In In addition, supporters of Rich Miailovich. an unsuccessful candidate and yell king hopeful, are conducting a vigorous vvrite-| in campaign on the basis that Miailovich "should have been named by the committee .” Claims of foul play and dirty politics in the selection process led to a meeting of the Board of Inquiry Friday. The ooard unanimously upheld the selec-i tions. “The board has completely j evaluated the statistical facts ! and evidence and all 23 ballots 1 and has no reason to suspect j ! the validity of the judging pro- j cesses or results.” said ASSC President Bill SteigerwaJt, a ' member of the board and chair-; man of the selection committee. Senate Statute Last month the ASSC Senate approved a statute providing for an ASSC Presidential Selection i Committee to govern the selection of the five yell leaders and the election of a yell king. The committee originally con-| sisted of 24 members—12 students and 12 others—administrators, faculty and members cf the athletic staff. Candidates for yell leader are required to attend a yell leader clinic conducted by the present > el 1 king and supervised by the coordinator of special everts. All candidates must have a minimum 2.0 grade average, a minimum of 28 units at USC by the end of the selection semester and must attend four out of five meetings of the clinic. 21 Applicants This year 35 applied for the clinic. 24 completed the training and took the examination and 21 applied for selection before the committee. Bob Jani, coordinator of special events, explained that judging was done on a maximum 100-point basis. There was a fixed score of from 20 to 25, based upon attendance at the ; clinics and the candidate's score on a written test. The remaining 75 possible points were distributed as follows: 25 fcr execution of motions, 25 for enthusiasm and spirit and 25 for appearance. . Jani said that the criteria for selection were explained by j (Continued on Page 2) Bed Contest Gets Donation For Hospital Take two Hollywood starlets, 20 fraternity men, two Abbey Rents’ beds and send them to Nevada and what do you have? Nothing more than 20 tired fraternity men, two confused beauties and a publicity stunt that has captivated the facilities of all major American news ’ sources. Preparation for the stunt began several weeks ago, when members of Tau Epsilon Phi ! learned of a bed-pushing fad started by some Canadian stu-, dents. 70 Mile ‘Hike’ Sparked by the Canadian trailblazers, the TEPs challenged Delta Chi to a similar bed-pushing race in the name of fortune, | adventure and sweet charity. But instead of restricting their race to a few city blocks, the , TEPs decided to race Delta Chi 70 miles from the Nevada state line to the Stardust Hotel in Las Vegas, pushing two Hollywood starlets on beds donated by Abbey Rents. Sponsored by Abbey Rents, the publicity and fund-raising stunt was carried through to help the Los Angeles Orthopedic Hospital with its building fund. Girl in Desert Judy Reddings, Miss L.A. Press Club, rode for the TEPs, and starlet Paula Laine for the Delts. TEP contest chairman Jerry Sherman explained that the girls were chosen after the fraternity men voted for “The Girl I Would Most Like To Be With in the Desert.’" A Royal, all-expense paid stay at the Stardust awaited the pushers after a 12-hour trek. Also on hand were reporters from both news services. Associated Press and United Press International. and Dude magazine, who had accompanied the pushers during the race. According to rules agreed upon by both sides, the beds were kept in motion at all times, with teams of two or three alternating in the pushing. A registered nurse also made the trip, as well as two trucks from Abbey Rents, which followed the beds.

The scientist prophesied that I biologic exploration of Mars may reveal the presence of extrater-' rest rial life forms. “But even the excitement in-| herent in such possibilities as j these will undoubtedly be surpassed by the reality of the discoveries which lie before us,” Dr. Hibbs remarked. Space Photos The moon exploration program j will start this year with space | craft development flights, and ! will continue next year with rough landings on the moon. Dr. Hibbs told his USC audience. Next, vehicles capable of orbiting Ihe moon and photographing it from a distance of a few hundred miles, and then craft able to land softly on the moon will be launched from 1963 to 1965. Although the moon has only one-fourth the radius of the (Continued on Page 2) i Being an unopposed candidate i isn't as easy as some voters may think.

Sue Hartford, candidate for the ASSC vice presidency, com-• plains that the parties are putting her under the same pressure applied to a candidate with competition. “They assume that just because I am almost a ‘sure choice’ I should use my influence to support other candidates,” she explains. “I’ve been foreed to pay attention to this mudslinging a> much as the other candidates,” she added. Two other unopposed candidates Bob Kendall (for international relations senator) and j Kay Yunker (for AWS presi-i dent), ace not experiencing Miss I Hartford's unique difficulties in ^ running for their offices. Kendall, who is currently a social studies senator, claims he I has no campaign worries about i political parties. “I ran on my own last year ancf I will do the same for this election,” he said. “While I am ! aware of political party campaigning at USC, I have had no party tell me or my friends how ! to vote.” Miss Hartford, who also is currently a senator from social studies, vehemently attacked the ; political parties for -“dragging even unopposed candidates into j their political mudslinging. “When candidates get to the point where they cannot be judged on their qualification1?, platforms and issues without being associated with pressure groups and activities, it's time to re-evaluate student government and politics at USC,” she noted. [ Like Kendall, Miss Yunker | could not join in Miss Hartford's I denunciation, and said she was i not aware of any political plans to undermine her campaign. “This is probably because I am running unopposed for an office where not all student body members vote,” she explained. “As t. group for female stu-! dents, AWS is a little apart from j other ASSC offices and con^e-i quently does not strike up tho avid interest of party politics,” I she continued. Miss Hartford, along with ! Kendall and Miss Yunker. agreed j that officers should be judged by qualities other than those 'based on personal issues and | personalities. Miss Hartford explained that all candidates would probably benefit by establishment of p>-litical parties that had the philosophy and platform status of national political parties.
