The aptismal ceremony probably will ie held in the little chapel of the ilia Margherita hospital where 'iss Bergman is nursing her son.

He arrived Thursday in Los Angeles from an extended tour of educational facilities in India. Pakistan, Burma. Malaya. Indo China, and Indonesia. CULTURE LAG Commenting on the supposed culture lag between Asiatic countries and the western nations, Dr. Wolontis said that those nations on his tour were backward only in a materialistic sense. “The students and educators in i these countries are making great 1 strides in the field of governmental affairs,-’ he said. ‘ Students in these countries are direly in need of material for study that American students take for granted. Books, pencils and paper lead the items of scarcity. But with all these handicaps the educators continue their struggle for better schools and government,” I said Dr. Wolontis. TRAVELED IN GENEVA The visitor, who began his travels in Geneva, Switzerland, told how the asiatic equivalent of the j private school is gradually dying ! out. Government supported institutions are becoming predominant. Dr. Wolontis studied at the University of Stockholm, where he received his degree in 1944. While in school he was president of the Swedish National union, an organization similar to the National Students association.

Employes at Harwell. Britain's biggest atomic research station where Fuchs worked, and all others were believed to have been included in the review. A ruling passed last September by the Panhellenic Council defines a i closed Monday night as permitting j no serenades, dancing, or group socializing in sorority houses. Men may still call on women in the sororities until 10:15 p.m. “Infractions of this rule, with which all sororities and fraternities are asked to cooperate, will be handled by the Panhellenic court”, Dean Moreland Said.

British Atom Workers in Loyalty Test LONDON, Feb. 12—(U.P>—Secret service men and Scotland yard operatives have spent the week end examining the records of hundreds j How valid is the Greater University committee's survey taken during registration? “It’s very solid,” said C. T. Gil-liam of C. T. Gilliam and Associates ' of Les Angeles, “Since it was not a scientific sampling, the mere fact that the majority of the students expressed | opinions may only magnify any inherent errors,” replied Mrs. Audry H. Cooke. Mrs. Cooke does survey work for the J. Walter Thompson advertising agency. She made it clear that this i did not imply that the survey actu-1 ally contained errors. Gilliam stated that the sampling taken was so complete that any errors which might result from its unscientific nature would be lessened to such a degree that it would amount to no more than 2 per cent. S On the basis of the preliminary survey results, Gilliam stated that a i clear indication should be already evident which would not vary markedly from the final tabula-j tions. “The survey is leaded.” Gilliam contended. “The fact that seven of the first eight questions pertain to j the parking situation tends to prejudice the whole survey,” he said. “Those students who do not own cars were not really interested in the problem and their answers would not be well considered,” he said. Students who do net own cars might, for the same reason, not bother to fill out the survey form To the question, “Do you plan to take a part in alumni activities the total number of students answered as follows: f-7 * Yes: 3536 No: 1861 Undecided: 1221 The breakdown by classes revealed that 477 graduate students said yes; 452, no; and 217 were undecided or left the question unanswered. 1429 seniors said yes; 709. no; and 458 were undecided. Juniors were fairly evenly divided on the question with 876 saying upon graduation?’ Death Toll Reported Large In Louisiana to demonstrate who is interested in not outlawing atomic arms.” aily Trojan staff members, including copy-eaders and reporters, meet tomor--W. 1:30 p.m., 418 SU. Figures Show Big Enrollment Drop Enrollment for this semester is belcw that of last spring, according to figures released today by the registrars office. As of February 9, the total SC enrollment was 13.075 as compared to 14.466 for the same day last year. These figures are exclusive of the Schools of Law. Dentistry, and Medicine. John Salmond. registrar's office, said students are still registering, and a final total will not be ready for some time. Approximate enrollment to date for thc Schools of Dentistry. 247, and Medicine, 435. are nearly the same as last year's. The School of Law has approximately 85 fewer students, dropping from 440 to 355. Casaba Tickets Available Today Rooters tickets for the California and Stanford basketball games are available at the ticket office today. Activity book numbers 1 to 4000 will get tickets for the Cal game Friday, and those holding book numbers 4000 and up for Stanford Saturday. Any rooters tickets left over will be distributed Friday regardless of activity book number. A limited number of reserve seats also will be placed on sale Monday. Tickets for the UCLA series, Mar. 3-4. will be available Feb. 27. The ticket office will be open until 7 Monday night to accommodate night school students. Lewis Birthday No Mirthday WASHINGTON. Feb. 12—<l'.P>— John L. Lewis observed his 70th birthday anniversary today, locked in what may be the grimmest battle of his long and stormy career as head of the nation’s coal miners. Neither his home nor United Mine workers headquarters would say how the crusty union leader would spend the day. But it was an open-odds bet it would be devoted to mapping the next step in his current fight against his two most hated antagonists—the coal operators and the federal courts. Rocked by two federal injunctions, Lewis on Saturday reluctantly ordered his 400.000 striking soft coal miners back into the pits. If they refuse to obey—and no one could say for a fact that “Mr. Eyebrows” would be unhappy if they did—Lewis will be in for another long and costly court siege. Lewis will not step down now as president of the mine workers although he reached the retirement age today. In Lewis’ book, that would be desertion in the face of the enemy. President Truman has powerful legal weapons at his command in his fight to force the soft coal miners back on a full five-day work week under the politically-distaste-ful Taft-Hartley law.

The preliminary figures on that question were 2135 for. 901 against, and 2234 didn't ! know. The fact that so many “didn't know” was very inusual in j Gilliam's experience.

The four Navy planes returned to the Oakland air base after searching west of Morro bay for more than two hours and reported they saw no trace of the mysterious craft. The Navy declined to speculate on the nationality of the mysterious submarine but added succinctly: “We know we do not have any craft in that area.” The incident was the third report | of an unidentified submarine off the California coast within the past two weeks. On Sunday, Jan. 29. three different persons reported sighting a submarine off the northern California coast in the vicinity of Eureka. Al Chisholm, a flyer, described the sub as being “similar to German .designs of the last war.” He said it was about 250 feet long, with a blunt nose ?nd carried a schnorkel breathing device and net cutters on its bow. end of this week. These results be on preregistration figures only. He said that the survey on questions not relating to parking was done as a matter of courtesy to the groups that requested them and that statistics would be made I without comment or recommendation. Arthur also mentioned that he would have information on a car pool early in the week. PARKING PROBLEM “We have estimated by observation," he declared, “that more than 1000 cars are driven to campus from the Row.” “We will make a recommendation regarding this when we have tabulated the figures on whether students favor a shuttle bus between the Row and the campus.’’ ‘Many fraternity and sorority people regarded the shuttle bus question as political,” Arthur stated. “I would like to clarify that misconception by saying that' this is not a referendum, a ballot, nor an election, but simply a survey with as large a sample as we could possibly get.” * He said he hoped to have the results of the survey, based on the entire registration, in the near future. port funeral home. Unofficial reports said that, in addition to these, seven were killed at Logansport, six at Cedar Grove and “10 to 15” at Curtis. Fifteen to 20 persons were unofficially reported injured at Logansport, 19 at Slack Air Force depot, and 25 injured were reported to have been brought to Shreveport Charity hospital. Some of those at Charity hospital may have been from Logansport, Slack depot, or even from Texas communities. SITUATION CONFUSED The tornado entered Louisiana at Logansport. Sligo, Castor. Cedar Grove (suburb of Shreveport), Slack base and finally Haynesvilie were hit. It was reported to have lost most of its force by the time it struck Haynesville, however. State police said the situation was confused in all the stricken communities. Power and telephone lines were down and fallen trees blocked the roads.

More than 400 students took advantage of the car-pool last semester. Charges Dropped In Pledge Theft By BOB WELLS Three shamefaced Sigma Alpha Mu pledges in a shabby Lincoln Heights courtroom Friday, let a little of the stiffness drop from their shoulders as they heard the petty theft charges against them dismissed. Judge Eldred E. Wolford of the municipal court's division 30 told Arthur Hainan, Harry Hoffman, and Jerry Adier that he did not believe they were motivated by criminal intent when they appropriated sundry' articles of public and private property as part of their fraternity initiation. “I hold your senior fraternity brothers more guilty than you,” the judge told them. However, Judge Wolford said he did not absolve the downcast trio of all responsibility. “Would you commit murder merely because someone told you to do it?” he asked. He said that he was dismissing chargtS because he believed that the three pledges had acted thoughtlessly, and he did not want to give them a crimmal record. TJie city attorney agreed to the court's motion. The three encountered the law Feb. 3 while busily engaged in depriving the intersection of 69th and San Pedro streets of a sign pest. They still face possible university and IFC censure.
