The photos are taken in room 5 in the base-of Student Union. + SLOGAN IMPORTANT The slogan, according to Bill Warfield, homecoming chairman, is important because it is sent to alumni all over the country; it sets the theme for homecoming week; it is plastered all over the campus; and its author receives two choice seats on the 50-yard line at the SC-Stanford game. MARK ENTRY PLAINLY Next Monday the committee will open <he box and decide which of the brain children secluded there will win the coveted grid ticket. In order to prevent a mixup in receiving this prize each slogan should plainly indicate the author’s name, phone number, and local ' address. MONDAY DEADLINE All students are eligible to participate. Slogans should not exceed ten words, and should be in the judges’ possession by Monday morning. The judging committee and its chairman will be announced fcy Warfield tomorrow. PAST WINNERS The winning slogan in last year's contest was “Cardinal Threads Among the Gold” and was submitted by Marvin ‘ Bud” Brooks. The slogan for homecoming week in 1947 was “Recall Your Joys in the Halls of Troy” by Guthrie Miller. Brains and thrift are rarely combined with beauty, but in the case of pretty Maxine Ewert, all three are bountifully packaged. BEAUTY: Maxine, 1947 homecoming queen, was the fall girl for another bit of wire-crossing by the L. A. County board of suporvisors. BRAINS: She got a fancy invitation from the burghermeist-ers to speak before them about the United States Constitution. In true scholarly fashion she prepared her declamation, rehearsed it, and polished it. THRIFT: When she appeared before the board yesterday they cmbarassedly but definitely told her that she wasn’t to speak before them; they had a constitutional expert on the way to talk, and she had been invited by mistake. Rather than thrdw away all that work, Maxine cannily marched across Spring street and delivered her talk before the City Council, which was more than willing to, u.h . . . listen to the beautiful coed. Smoker to Recall Jones Memories SC’s immortal Coach Howard Jones will loom realist-| ically out of the past as Frank Bull recalls 20 years of sports-casting SC football games at the AMS-YMCA orientation smoker, 7:30 tomorrow evening. Students, new and old, will be only briefly bored this •♦‘year by talks of campus organizations and their accomplishments Spring Referendum Up for Approval Approval of last spring’s referendum and the setting of a date for the election of an ASSC president will top the agenda of the first Senate meeting of the year tonight, sharing top billing with the appointment of key committee chairmen, including the powerful election commissioner.

The third major division of recommendations in the report was to bring friendly pressure upon colleagues about whom students complain. where the complaint has reasonable basis. A final suggestion was that outdated final examinations be tiled in the library or made available to students by some other means, as a contribution to minimizing the effects of foreknowledge of examinations, especially re-used ones. Band Still Seeks Musical Trojans Football bandman Tommy Walker has renewed his search for musicians to complete the fast-step-ping ranks of the Trojan band In preparation for next week's Navy encounter when the SC instruments will face those of the 170-piece Marine corps band at ,halftime. Vacancies eixsts in all sections of the band with a special need for musicians in the reed and percussion sections. The reluctance of sophomores and freshmen to take part in the organization's activities has caused Walker to assure these students “that it is easy to get into the swing of the group’s work.” Rehearsal periods can be arranged to accommodate student schedules. Applicants should report to the Instrumental Organizations building on the corner of Hoover street and Exposition boulevard before tomorrow afternoon. Uniforms, instruments, and music will be issued today and Friday . For students who desire it, one unit of credit may be obtained for band work by class enrollment in the band. Other rewards for all members include football tickets, lunch following Saturday morning rehearsals, honor keys, sweaters, and blankets which are awarded according to a length-of-service scale.

Maurice Malkin, Brooklyn, avowed ex-Communist, said today that three Moscow agents are now in the United States charged with reorganizing the American Communist party to prevent it from being forced underground. The witness, who said he was born in Minsk. Russia, and helped organize the Communist party in this country in 1919, testified before a closed session of a Senate Judiciary subcommittee. His testimony was later made public. ATTEND MEETIING Malkin, who claimed to have left the party in 1926 because it took orders from Moscow, said the three Moscow agents attended a “top layer” Communist party meeting at a Beacon. N. Y., farm house several weeks ago. He said he did not know the men’s names, but had been informed of their presence at the meeting by a party member who was present. The agents he testified, were net Soviet spies or secret police but a Communist International commission, or “trouble shooting unit.” “ They are actually in charge of, if necessary, reorganizing the party, giving orders to the party, and everything else,’’ he said. PARTY “SCARED" Malkin said that the Communist party in this country is “scared" that Congress will pass a law outlawing it. Such a law. he testified, would “insure the ultimate destruc- I ticn of the party in this country ‘ and provide the necessary statutes to apprehend and punish foreign espionage agents who are now operating in this country.” The witness also testified: That there are some 75.000 to 100.000 card-carrying Communist party members in the United States, and about 4.000.000 persons “under the Communist discipline.” He described as being under Communist “discipline” members of organizations such as the International Workers order, CIO Fur Workers union and other groups which he termed Communist controlled. the forum committee, and Bill Warfield as Homecoming Game chairman.
