* V + George Tirebiter Steps Down for Son x/<?U&i£ML Daiiu an Vol. XLIV SPECIAL SESSION Los Angeles Calif., Wednesday, Mar. 11, 1953 No. 92 Senators to Discuss Grades, Sex, Yells by Charlie Barnett The place of grade point averages, sex requirements, and yell kings in ASSC politics will be discussed tonight when the ASSC Senators leave their five-week examination studying long enough for a special meeting tonight at 7:15 in 418 SU. Two proposed ASSC constitutional amendments will be before the Senate tonight. It will Sally McGrath To Get All-U Party Backing Sally McGrath will receive the backing of the All-University party in the special ASC election 1o fill the senate seat left vacant by Tinka Wing Mann. Miss McGrath, a Pi Phi and junior in LAS. was nominated as the party candidate over Bill Van Alstyne by a vote of 34-31 yesterday at an All-U meeting. Kruger Withdraws Kon Kruger withdrew his name as a possible candidate for the party in favor of Miss McGrath. Miss McGrath announced to the party that she “would appreciate their backing but could not be listed as an All-U candidate on the slate due to a ruling of the Pi Phi constitution.” The party voied to give her its backing despite this technicality. The All-U party then recommended that the Senate approve a bill recognizing crew as a major spdrt along with football, basketball, baseball, and tracto Veteran's Notice Application forms for combat pay claims are now available in the Trovet office. Veterans who have nerved time in combat in Korea are eligible to receive benefits. Bob Hallberg President take a two-third majority vote of the Senate to put them on the ballot at the special ASSC election next week. tProposed by AMS President George Gonzales, the first amendment would lower the grade point requirement for ASSC candidates and remove the sex requirement. Women Wanted Under the present constitution, the ASSC president must be a male while the vice-president and secretary must be females. These requirements will be dropped if the Gonzales amendment is passed. Candidates for ASSC offices must have a 1.5 cumulative grade point average and a 1.5 the semester before the election. The new amendment wrould lower the scholastic standards to a cumulative 1.0 and 1.3 the semester before the election. Those supporting the amendment claim that the high scholastic standard for Senators contributes to apathy toward student government and that candidates with both an intense interest in student government and a 1.5 average are hard to find. They also say that women should have equal opportunity in running for office. Above Average The opponents of Gonzales’ amendment say this is just a move by a political faction to fnake its candidate eligible, and that student leaders should have above average grades. A second amendment, introduced by Bill Van Alstyne, would create a committee of students, faculty, and alumni which would appoint the candidates for the yell king elections. The committee would also have the power to remove a yell king for incompetency. Both amendments were introduced at last Wednesday’s meeting and will come up for a vote after discussion tonight.

Hawaii State Vote Called Significant by Tom Pflimlin The House of Representatives’ role call vote to admit Hawaii as the 49th state was called a significant step, both contiguously and democratically, by J. Eugene Harley, head of the department of political science. Although the measure now goes back to the Senate, authorities think Hawaii will receive statehood before the end of 1954. Dr. Harley explained that “contiguously” meant parted geographically from the rest of the country in yesterday’s interview. “Hawaii is 2092 miles away from the United States.” Harley said, “and our country expanding Its interests to a geographical point so far away reminds me of the contiguity of the British Com-Inonwealh of Nations.** “I am highly in favor of admitting Hawaii,” Harley continued, DR. J. EUGENE HARLEY . . . favors statehood might suggest can be vetoed by the American-appointed Governor of Hawaii.” “Acts of legislature pertaining to Hawaii are subject to the veto of the governor, but can also be vetoed by a two-thirds majority of the House.” As to the likelihood of Hawaii becoming a state, Dr. Harley is decided in the affirmative. “Tho administration is behind the bill most of all because Hawaii thinks and votes Republican. I believe enough support can be drummed up in the House to pass the bill without any trouble.” He added that Alaska will probably follow Hawaii in as the 50th state when the Democrats again get into power. Alaska Democratic “Alaska is Democratic,” he said, “and it is only logical that the Democrats would work to ad- Sixty-Five Trojan Illini Called! ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Social Functions Slated Names and local addresses of quested that this information be the 65 students from Illinois attending SC are wanted by the office of high school and college relations.

State Get-Together A state get-together for all Illinois students is set for Mar. 25 at 3:30 p.m. in the Chancellor’s suite, administration building, according to the office of high school and junior college relations. At least 25 invitations have been sent to students from Illinois but others, whose addresses are unknown, are invited to visit the office of high school and junior college relations or call ext. 414 for reservations. Feel at Home Designed to make out-of-state students feel at home and meet fellow students fr6m the same same area, future state parties for other states are being planned. Dr. Fred D. Fagg Jr., president of the university; Bernard L. Hyink, dean of students, and Mrs. Edwarda White, counselor of women, will meet with the group. Committee members are Mrs. H. W.

The union said the university management had attempted to influence library workers against the union by demoting and transferring them. The AFL complained to the National Labor Relations board that some library employees had been told they would be fired if they joined the union. John Doolittle, business manager for the union, said a major- ity of the librarians have asked the union to represent him in their fight for better wages and working conditions. According to a spokesman for the university administration, SC has been informed by the NLRB that there have been no demotions or transfers during the period since the university was first informed of the union’s interest, and that he university has at no time threatened discharge or any other disciplinary action by reason of union membership or activity. Nervous Breakdown Forces Retirement by Nick Apple George Tirebiter is gone. But this time he is not the victim of Westwood dognappers as he has been so frequently during his two-year reign as Troy’s official mascot. Like his famed father before him, George II has been transferred to less strenuous duties in the country. Unlike the uproar which preceded George U’s elevation to the royal position of official convertible chaser in Septem-' ber of 1950, there will be no battle this year. George Tirebiter III has already been coronated. Introduction He was formerly introduced to the student body last football season when 7-year-old Barbara Ballard, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Harry Ballard, who own the Tire-biters, presented the wiry mongrel to the. fans at the Northwestern game. Since then George III has been bidding his time. Yesterday Ballard announced that George II has been in retirement for approximately two months and that his successor is now properly tutored to assume greater obligations. During most of his seven months the mutt has been cared for by ex-Knight President Jim Cooke and his Pi Kappa Alpha brothers. Lambda Chi Alpha, however, took custody of George this semester. Ballard plans to rotate the mascot along the Row so that George will become better acquainted with his followers. Mental Problem Meanwhile, George II is resting on a farm in Santa Cruz and recovering from a nervous breakdown suffered at Southern California. The original Tirebiter was also sent to a farm suffering from a mental disorder. It was on the farm of an alumnus near El Centro that George I was accidentally killed by an automobile in the summer of 1950. Thus ended nearly a decade of faithful service to the university. The Winner Then the battle began to select a new mascot. To settle the problem the Daily Trojan conducted a special election with dogs, horses, a baby cobra, and a pistol-toting kangaroo as contestants. In the end George II defeated Hector the Horse, 800-518. GEORGE II lived a busy two years while mascot. Frequent dog-nappings and mysterious disappearances, plus his work at football games and pep rallies, caused him to snap under heavy pressure. He is now resting on a farm. FIRST IN NATION Faculty Art Classes Set University employees who have a yen to paint, design, or draw but who have never had the •opportunity are in luck, according to Donald B. Goodall, director of the fine arts department. Special classes in these fields are open to faculty members, their wives or husbands and employees beginning Tuesday and lasting until May 26. A $5 fee to cover the cost of maintenence and models is the only charge for the classes, said Goodall. Registration for the classes is Tuesday in 202 Harris hall, between Expedition boulevard and 37th street. The class meets from 7 to 9:40 p.m. Faculty members from the art department will be on hand to assist with and introduce pictorial and design problems. Advisers will accept rotation assignments so that the majority of the fine arts' staff will contribute. Educational Video Workshop Set Daily Trojan ... . . . Staff will meet today at noon in the city room. Reporters, copyreaders, ‘and news editors must attend. Community leaders will meet at the Hancock foundation tomorrow to' begin preliminary work for an educational television workshop which will be held on campus in April. The workshop, which is devoted to teaching various groups in the Southland how to use educational television, is sponsored by the adult education division of the Council on National organizations. Staff members of Channel 28 will help train the group. The gram' attempted in the United workshop is the first such prostates. Tomorrow’s meeting will lay groundwork for the 10-day session, w'hich starts Apr. 22. Fifty-groups, including Youth Organizations, PTA, labor organizations, civic groups, churches, and Arom-; en’s clubs, will be represented. ^ j Develop Centers Purpose of the workshop, according to Mrs. Lois McCarthy, executive director of the Council on National organizations who has come from New York to set up the project, is to develop community-centered educational TV programs. Representatives of Los Angeles organizations will determine tomorrow which members of their organizations will attend the meeting, their qualifications, and the fee to be charged. Financing of the workshop will be shared by the community and Council on National organizations. Complete Change “Our problem is to make representatives of these groups aware of the potentialities of educational TV. This new medium is an about-face from commercial TV, and these groups must realize it,” Mrs. McCarthy said. • She said that community organizations in this area would be encouraged to cooperate in presenting programs on channel 28. “Instead of using a program produced by a local PTA, for example, we would combine the efforts of all TAs plus perhaps those of other groups. In this way, we can develop community-wide interest in and better programs for this new medium,” she said. Arabs Sought To Cut Discs For Voice SC’s Arab students are being sought by the Voice of America to have their impression of the United States recorded for broadcast in their homeland. Arab students are asked to contact Mrs. Dorothy Zech, foi^ign student adviaer in 226 SU. ^he will arrange for recordings wnen the Voice of America repres«itative visits the campus. Ramses Nassif, of the Voice of America’s Arabic Service, is expected to be in the Los Angeles area on Ma$, 19 for about six days. Nassif wants to interview Arab students at SC about their studies, impressions of America, and what they hope to undertake when they go back to their homeland. Chairman Requests Volunteers For Work on April Blood Drive An appeal for students to do clerical work, publicity, handle sign-up tables, and other chores in the April blood drive, was made by Sally McGrath, blood drive chairman. Volunteers are asked to attend a meeting at 2:15 this afternoon 321 SU when chairmanships will be handed out. Keen Competition Keen competition among campus groups for trophy honors should break the record 735 pints contributed in the fall drive. No goal has been set for the spring drive. Another problem for the blood, drive committee is the location of the bloodmobile on campus. Elaborating on the publicity help needed, Mis? McGrath said people are needed to hand out cards, make posters, and think up stunts. The only event announoed by SALLY McGRATH . .-want* volunteers the committee so far, is a talk at the varsity show by Nina Moller, Danish transfer student. Men .Needed Two or three men are also needed to set-up equipment and tear it down aftei the drive. Miss McGrath appealed to all religious groups, sororities, ROTC units, honorary groups, and independents to help out. She can be peached at the Pi Beta Phi house, Richmond 8-8501. Appeal for blood will begin next week, and the donations will be made April 21-24. However, student help is needed now. One of the new appeals for the need of blood to be used in the campaign is the use of gamma globulin used to destroy polio I virus. Gamma globulin protects a child for about six weeks after exposure.
