Decision Miffs SC Air Team Members of the SC team which participated in the UCLA-spon-sored Pacific Coast Intercollegiate Air meet Saturday have voiced dissatisfaction over the judges’ decision awarding first place to the airborne Bruins. Miss Kamala Shrinagesh, captain of the SC team, said, “UCLA objected to the judges decision in one of the events. As a consequence, It was thrown out. Since SC had won both first and third places in two other events, the points scored in this event would have made a big difference." The SC team was composed of Captain Kamala Shrinagesh, Andy ; Henry. Fred Walters, Marty Black- ) man, John Larson, and Bud Cos- j tello. Captain Shrinagesh was one of three women tied for winning woman flyer of the meet. The other schools in the tie were UCLA and Stanford. The ‘Donald W.

Mohler Honored At YMCA Rite The death of a famed Trojan, Col. Orv Mohler, was observed last night in a ceremony during which members of the Howard Jcnes Memorial YMCA placed a wreath at Tommy Trojan’s feet. Col. Mahlers last campus appearance was during the rally before the SC-Oregon State game, Sept. 24, 1948. At that time, he and six other all-Americans were feted at parades, dinners, speeches, and a half-time ceremony when the band formed a large replica of the all-Ameiican emblem and then called the football greats onto the field to complete the formation. “Col. Mohler flew from Dayton to be present for the ceremonies. His footprints were placed in the SC Hall of Fame at the Gates of Troy at that time,” said Dale Evans, former YMCA president. “Col. Mohler said, in answer to the rally committee’s invitation, that he would be glad to come, and that anyhing connected with SC and football was well worth his time.” Col. Mohler was killed in a B-25 bomber crash in Alabama, Sunday. by EARL GRISWOLD Strategy plans of faculty and student debate teams remained a closely guarded secret yesterday when both teams refused to divulge possible lines of argument. Both teams expressed confidence of victory in the debate scheduled for noon tomorrow in Bovard as part of the Faculty-Stu-dent day program. Topic of the debate will be • Resolved. that the students have more to offer the faculty than the faculty has to offer the students.” The student debate team composed of Omar Kureishi, Al Wiggins, and Ed Stegman, was deep in a strategy meeting yesterday afternoon. Claiming to be 6-point favorites, the three were also busy thinking up alibis, just in case. . . “We’ve just recently returned from a debate at Stanford.” complained Wiggins. “Our throats are tired and hoarse. Laryngitis is a definite worry. But we're optimistic.” KUREISHI REMARKS Kureishi jumped in to remark, “Wiggins’ arguments will be tempered by the fact that he has a class with Professor Redding. But since I have no classes with any of our opponents, I’ll have real academic freedom for. the first time.” Stegman, beaming brightly, said, “It will be a pleasure to meet three intelligent members of the faculty. We intend to demonstrate overwhelmingly and conclusively the great disparity between the quality j of the student body and the faculty.” Optimism of the faculty was even more proncunced. indicated by the ' dismissal of the idea of a strategy meeting to plan for the debate. “The student debaters are not sufficiently mature to make up for the weight of our years and experience,” Dr. Russell L. Caldwell, assistant professor of history, said “We’ll come up with a conference in the last 10 minutes and have time enough to prepare arguments to confound the students.” “I know all three members on the opposition team very well, and I’m quite convinced they are such novices that the faculty team will toy with them as the L.A. Rams might do with a high school team. “Stegman is the chief stumbling block, but that will undoubtedly work out for he will probably be the chief stumbling block of his team, too.” BULL SESSIONS Debaters for the faculty team will be Dr. Caldwell; Prof. Robert F. Craig, associate professor of trade and transportation; and Prof. W. Charles Redding, lecturer in j speech. Judges will be Dean of Students Bernard L Hyink. IFC President Howard Kotler. and Prof. Earl C. Bolton, visiting assistant piogres- j sor of business law. Other plans for the F-S day include: “Bull sessions” in the last 2D minutes of each class tomorrow to discuss grading, exams, study problems, and other problems of mutual concern to faculty and students. F-S volleyball game on the women’s athletic field. 3 p.m. Dinners on the Row with faculty guests. Benefit Movie Of 48 SC-ND Game Today Spurred by an endorsement from Mayor Fletcher Bowron and an enthusiastic first-day reception by students, the Trovet Living War Memorial campaign gathers momentum today with a presentation of motion pictures of the 1948 football thriller between SC and Notre Dame in Hancock auditorium at noon.

Campus Ice Cream Vendor Goes All Out for Wampus After glancing through an advance humorous copy of the current funny issue of Wampus, the SC humor , magazine, which goes on sale today in front of the Student Union, Miss Olive Djiin. prominent campus ice cream vendor, indicated to an opinion-gathefing Wampus reporter yesterday that she “could not get enough” of the scintillating journal. “Yes, I believe I will have another one,” she declared. “You like it, eh?” asked the laughing Wampusman. “I think it st—” “Yes, ‘stupendous’ is the word for it,” the reporter chimed. Miss Djiin fizzed slowly. i “What I mean is that it sm—” “QJnarvelous? How true,” ecsta-cized the reporter. “Saay, this is great,” Miss Djiin said suddenly smacking her lips. “Where can I buy this stuff?” “Student Union,” crowed the reporter. “They sell this at the Stoo Yoo?” she asked unbelievingly. “Sure,” chortled the reporter, “all you want.” Miss Djiin looked doubtful. She arose and prepared to leave. “It’s got girls in it, too,” the reporter said. Miss Djiin passed out. 'm b Bridge' Traffic Jams Avoided in LAS Hall mittee members yesterday afternoon, promised his full cooperation in the drive to raise funds for scholarships for needy student* who lost parents in combat durin* World War II. “I think this is a wonderful project and wish to congratulate the people who originated it and the ones who are backing it at present,” the mayor remarked. “Too many memorial drives ara purely physical,” he continued. “This one seems to actually affect the coming generation of war orphans.” Evidence that both students and townspeople were heartily backing the drive continued to come into campaign headquarters last night. Alpha Omicron Pi and PiKA both laid claim to being the first campus organization to contribute 100 per cent to the fund. Howard Patmore, registrar, stated, “I think it is a good thing and -endorse it heartily. This is a very fine cause under good auspices.” The JTrovet organization eventually plans to raise the Living War Memorial fund to $24,003, which will provide scholarships for 10 needy, war-orphaned students. Goal of the current drive, which closes Dec. 7. is $6,000. an increase of 50 per cent over last year's donations. Donation booths, strategically located on the campus, are open from 10 a.m. to 3 pjn. ih Registrar's Notice ?ourtesv LA Times TERESA CEI.I.I. Italian film actress, is shown presenting a granite stone from the Roman Colosseum to L.A. Supervisor Roger Jessup (left) and John I. Garland (rt.), member of the International Olympics committee. Taken from the emperor'■ box, the piece of granite is a gift from the Italian people. Students expecting to graduate in February 1950 should check the list in Owens Hall near the Registrar's office. Howard W. Patmore Registrar bv ROGER HOLMES When you leave the new LAS building you won’t have to worry about getting into your next class on time, the Daily Trojan discovered yesterday. Using Bridge hall as an example of how not to design a building that is to be emptied and filled in ten minutes, the DT .hoped to see what improvements have been planned at Founders hall. Apparently the architect walked past Bridge at 11:51 one school day and saw the familiar mob scene, because he more than doubled the emptying capacity of the new structure. Quite a group gathers on the inside and outside of the entrance to Bridge every day trying to plan ways of making their chosen rounds. This will not happen at Founders. The new 4-story structure has five entrances with 18 doorways. These are spaced conveniently along its length and width. When you stroll through one of these entrances, you can take your pick of any of the four stairways leading upstairs or three going into the basement. At the end of the building where the auditorium and lecture hall are located, the total width of the stairway is 9 feet 8 inches. The rest are five feet, which is the width of the stairs at Bridge and* the minimum under the state law. There are three stairways going from the second to the third floor, but only about half as many students are accommodated on this floor. There are two stairways leading up to the top floor, but this is composed entirely of department offices. Federal Aid to Private Schools To Be Discussed “Should Federal Aid Be Rendered to Parochial Schools?” will be the topic discussed this evening at 7 over KTRU. It has received national prominence in newspapers recently. Tonight’s panel is the fifth in the regular weekly series of the “Campus Forum.” Tentative panel members, chosen last week, include a member of the Newman club, the Catholic student social club on campus, an Episcopalian representative, a student in the School of Law, and LAS President George Woolery. Tom Keedy, graduate education student, will be the moderator. Editorial ★ A Little Helps A Lot 'ill ir pnw MISS OLIVE DJIIN, popular campus ice cream saleswoman, shown above as she was being interviewed by a Wampus reporter yesterday. Miss Djiin said she couldn't get enough of Wampus, which she termed "stupendous" It isn’t often that something can be done toward building a better world, but this week we all have the opportunity. The opportunity: Trovet Living war Memorial. The way: Contributions to it. Now, some people may ask what is the Trovet Living War Memorial, and some people may ask how it can aid in building a better world. Well, here is what it is and how it can reach thc goal. Trovet Living War Memorial was conceived by Trovet Norman Evans a year ago to be a living tribute to the men killed in the war who left children without a guaranteed education. It was set up to sponsor this education through scholarships. Funds for the scholarships were to be raised by donations. Scholarships are to be for $2400, giving the student $300 per semester for four years. The Memorial will provide scholarships for students with high school scholastic records and for those who have exhibited leadership qualities. Priority will be given those applicants living in charitable institutions and not receiving income from insurance or special funds. No person will be refused opportunity to compete for a scholarship because of race, creed, reli-figion, or'national origin. q Through a college education, the Memorial will provide citizens who will be more cognizant of world problems and thereby contribute to a better understanding among all peoples. In this way a better world can be achieved. There is the purpose of the Living War Memorial and how it plans to do it. Now its up to you and me. We can aid by contributing to the fund. The contribution does not have to be large. The quota is only $6000. If every student and faculty member gave 50 cents, the drive would go over the top. The drive ends on Dec. 7. Let’s make it a memorable day, but let the memory be a Living War Memorial scholarship.
