Cal rooters. What is Oskie? He’s the symbol of Cal student spirit represented by a bear costume, *-- which, when draped over the frame of some ardent rooter, brings cheering section rah-rahs during athletic activities. Oskie was abducted by members of Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity, led by President Cliff Shinn, who was leading a search for the SC banner, mysteriously missing during the game. Search for the banner halted when the hiding place of the mascot was discovered in the lower levels of Memorial stadium. Grabbing their 'prize, the grcup fled from enemy territory. For two years Oskie had been safely locked in a trunk between his public appearances at football games. Many attempts had been made by rival schools to kidnap him but all failed. Now that he has made his appearance on the SC campus the question arises as to the fate of Oskie. Telegrams sent to the Cal student organizations are unanswered. Lack cf comment on the part of the Cal student body indicates that they possibly have not been informed of the abduction.

Kidnapping Has Good Points ctress Entertains Acacia War Clouds Over Europe Crowing Darker—Pettengill “Europeans today are not worrying how to stop another war, but how to stop Russia,” said Dr. Robert B. Pettingill, director of the Teaching Institute of Economics, to an overflow audience in the Art and Lecture room yesterday. Dr. Pettingill said that the Russians “storm cloud” over Europe is growing darker now that*-the Russians have the atom bomb. “I can pose questions and state the problems, but thank God I don't have to give the answers,” he stated. One of the major problems reported was that of rising German nationalism. Dr. Pettingill thinks that we are making a mistake by treating Germany as a friend merely because she is “the enemy of an enemy.” “We will be making a big mistake if we put the Germans back into control of their government,” he warned. Of the many victims of pledge ictn&ppings on fraternity row. Bill albeit, Acacia, considers himsk?ll ne of the luckiest. Fuiding himself in a canyon mewhere in Brentwood, he acci-‘eatally stumbled into the homeoi 'ovie Star Diana Lynn. Miss Lynn and her husband Jolin C. Lindsay, Hollywood architect, were play mg double solitaire, but Walbert’s arrival changed their Ians. The Lindsays disproved the the-that all Hollywood stars are friendly to strangers. They spent o hours entertaining Walbert. "hen his fellow actives arnved hey, too, were invited to join the -oup. Walbert particularly enjoyed -iking triple ‘lemonades' with iana Lynn. “It could happen only nee in a lifetime.” he said. The evening was not over, hovv-ver. Another group of pledges had dlowed the active's car, and alter shoit skirmish and a long ride, DIANA LYNN Welcome, stranger Walbert was alone again on a hill above Malibu.

About 160 war plants still have to be dismantled. ‘ Some German plants are being dismantled, not because they are potentially dangerous, but because they are competition to England and France,” he pointed out. Turning to France, the economist stated that the French are fearful the U.S. will desert them in time of need. “They feel slighted because we didn't include them in Trovet Prexy To Be Chosen The Trovet presidential race was thrown wide open today when Frank O'Sullivan, incumbent, announced that he would not be a candidate. Trovets will nominate new officers at a general membership meeting at 3:15 this afternoon in 418 Student Union. Plans for the year, including the War Memorial Scholarship fund drive, will be discussed at the meet ing. “We particularly urge new mem bers to attend,” O'Sullivan said, “since there (are many offices and committee posts to fill. It has been Trovet policy in past years to encourage new leadership from its ranks. We hope to continue this policy.” Trovets, the official SC veterans organization, was named last year as the outstanding men’s organization on campus by AMS. brought Walbert home. Lindsay is a graduate of thc SC School of Architecture and had been kidnapped himself while a student. Walbert hopes that “all future kidnapping victims meet, two such understanding people.” Advertising Fraternity Eager to Aid Students The eagerness of professional members of Alpha Delta Sigma to aid the advertising student in his transition from academic to business life was emphasized at the Dr. Pettingill sees Britain’s economic problems as post-war problems and not those due to the Labor party. “Britain has made tremendous strides since the war in building, production, and many other fields,” he explained, “but her problems are genuine and difficult to remove.” “The Marshall plan aid is not enough. We must do more and work harder,” he concluded. Women Debators Today is the last day for women to try out for debate.

Trojans 'Had' By Vulturemen Thousands of vultures, preying on a helpless DT-fed public, made a killing yesterday and have retired to feather their nests with numerous green leaves. Placed at strategic points on campus, Vulture salesmen modestly displayed their wares to students who were stunned by empty DT stands. “They didn’t have a chance,” admitted one Sigma Delta Chi, national professional journalism fraternity man. “They were flopping around fish out of water without their DT’s. Our vultures just snapped them up.” Rumor has it that disgruntled students are circulating a petition about campus to get their fifteen cents back.

Chapman, manager of the Los Angeles regional office, said 7000 SC vets should receive their checks by tha first of the month. An additional 2500 checks will go out about two weeks later. *-- This covers all SC veterans with the exception of about 10 per cent. Checks mailed later than Nov. 10 are delayed for a number of reasons. Veterans may have failed to put an estimate of their wages on their enrollment documents, listed an incorrect address, put down an incorrect claim number, or failed to indicate if subsistence allowance is desired. Some checks may not reach the veteran transferees because of fail- ure to secure a letter of eliglbilty frcm the local VA office prior to transfering to SC. Veterans may also have failed to have their records sent to the Los Angeles office in time for a certificate to be issued. • Chapman reminded veterans that there are 43,600 students in the Southern California area administered by the Los Angeles office. Each record must receive individual attention.

Principal speaker for this afternoon’s session will be Arnold Raum, first assistant to the Solicitor General, and special assi.-.tant to the US. Attorney General, lit1 will talic or. recent tax decisions of the high court. Raum. a Harvard graduate, has also achieved distinction outside the field of taxation. His argument before the Supreme Court helped win till Tidelands oil case for the government when the U.S. sued the State oi California over the rights to offshore lands. He began criminal prosecution against the “Huey Long gang,” and handled the investigations that led to the conviction of Richard Leche, governor of Louisiana, and James Monroe Smith, president of Louisiana State university. His argument in the income tax evasion case against “Big” Bill Johnson of Chicago, once known as the 'gambling king of America.” resulted in the Supreme Court's sustaining of Johnson's conviction.
