Bad Leg May Keep t Flower on Bench by Stan Wood Daily Trojan Sports Editor The end of the line may be the rough spot on the avenue of success as far as Capt. Kenny Flower’s collegiate cage career is concerned. Coach Forrest Twogood, when interviewed yesterday afternoon, said he would not start his senior star in tonight s — —--1 UCLA same, unless there is Bruin Rooters Outnumber Trojans 2 to 1 Less than 10 per cent of the crowd expected t« attend the SC-UCLA basketball series tonight and tomorrow- will be in the SC rooters’ section, and UCLA will have a rooters’ section twice the size of SC’s according to ticket manager John Morley. “Only about 500 SC rooters’ tickets were sold,” said Morley yesterday after the rooter ticket sales were cut off. “UCLA will have a rooters' section about twice as large as we will,” he estimated, although exact figures of UCLA sales are not yet available. He expected the total attendance for each of the games to be jumping rope and running. marked improvement in the condition of Flower’s bruised calf muscle. Tonight’s clash and tomorrow^ PCC finale, both starting at 8:30 at the Pan Pacific auditorium, are the last games on SC’s regular schedule. Flower, a colossus in SC’ cage success this season, is able to run but cannot change direction with-o u t experiencing excruciating pain in his injured limh. Kagey Kenny’s greatest asset is his ability to fake, dodge, and to generally confuse the enemy with some impossible gyrations. So, naturally, these advantages, as well as Troy’s chances of winning, will be greatly reduced if the muscle doesn't mend quickly. Captain Flower played only briefly in yesterday’s practice session at the Pan Pacific, and wks relieved by Sophomore Jack Findley. After the stint, Kenny said the leg was still sore. Thereafter. he confined his exercise to about 5000 of the 6800 Pan Pacific capacity. Most of the reserved seats at SI.50 have been sold, and the general admissions sales are also fairly good. There will be gener- “Kenny is too great a ballplayer to have people get a bad im-pressiort of his playing ability,” said the blond mentor with noticeable emotion. “I want people to remember him as the fine al admission tickets available to- player he is, not to see him night and tomorrow at Pan Pacific. stumbling and hobbling out there.

For this, the 96th clash in the crosstown vendetta, Twogie said he would start his only other senior. Ed Simpson, at forward: Roy Irvin at center; and Chet Carr and Dick Welsh at guard. Uclan Coach Johnny Wooden said he would start John Moore Unity of West Europe Told by Time Staffer by Roy Page Western Europe has been pressed by both the East and the West and consequently it has made a great deal of progress toward unity, according to John Scott, Time foreign correspondent, who has been reporting European affairs for 20 years. Scott, w’ho lived inside the Soviet Union for nine years, spoke on campus yesterday about European unity. He was Time’s Central European Bureau head for three years after the close of World War H, and last summer he toured Europe for the Defense Department. “People in Europe have had a dream of unity for a long time,” he said. “It started way back when nationalism began in Europe.” Western Unity Scott believes that since the end of the war this dream has been realized more than ever before. Pressure from Russia as well as from the United States has caused the trend towards Western unity. “Russia has proceeded to form an economic unity in Eastern Europe for the greater power and glory of the Soviet Union.” said Scott. “To date 23 billions in reparations have been taken out of Eastern Europe, and the Soviet Union will continue to do this until 1954. “Unite if you’re going to survive is the thinking of Western Europe,” according to Scott. He noted, however, that the economic unity, despite the reparations, has benefited Eastern Europe since 1945, although there have been political and social indignities. European Support “Banking and commerical enterprises, and social and governmental organizations are pressing for the lessening of national boundaries and tariffs. I believe the popular support in Europe is there too. “Vigorous suggestions have been made in the United States for this unity," said Scott, Though we sometimes work counterwise and raise our own tariffs while seeking them to lessen theirs.” Scott believes that until 1948 the Western Germans were thinking in terms of an old national unity between East and West Germany. “Now the western Germans are beginning to feel that a United estern Europe not a United Germany would be best for them,” he said. “The most important problem (Continued on Page 4) WEINBERG TRIAL Professor Testifies in Scientist X Case WASHINGTON, Feb. 26 (UP)—A prosecution witness in the perjury trial of Dr. Joseph W. Weinberg admitted today that he lied to the FBI when he once said he had never been a member of the Communist Party. The admission was made by Joseph Biskind, a music teacher in Berkeley, Calif., who in has testified that Weinberg attended about 20 meetings of a secret Communist cell at the University of California. Dr. John Graham Backus, a physics professor at the University of Southern California, testified he “believes” Weinberg attended meetings of a secret cell. But he refused to state flatly that Weinberg had attended session of this cell at the University of California in 1939. Backus proved to be a reluctant witness about his own past. He said he believed he attended meetings with Weinberg, but “I could be wrong.” Backus said he was not a member of the Communist party now and was “not sure" if he had ever legally been a member. Weinberg, dubbed “scientist X” by the House un-American Activ- IFC Votes $300 for Handbook Al Carpenter, student handbook editor, yesterday w’on another round in his fight for more funds when the Interfraternity council voted to appropriate $300 for the book. Meeting at the Phi Sigma Kappa house, the IFC voted to raise the appropriation by house assessment, since the council does not have $300 in the treasury. This means each house will be assessed about $9. Phil Prince, Trojan Chest fraternity collections chairman, spoke for the chest drive and asked each house to contribute $1 per member. Ed Ripley, Delta Chi president, said he realized the importance of the drive and moved that each house be formally assessed $1 a member. President Bill Meacham, who did not preside at the meeting because of recent illness, successfully tabled the motion, stating that the representatives should discuss the motion with their houses first. George Gonzales, AMS president, re-introduced his plan, Operation Handshake, for better relations between the Row and the surrounding community. He gave each representative a mimeographed outline of “Handshake" . and asked them to bring the plan to a vote at the next meeting. John G. Backus, associate professor of physics at SC, was in Washington, D. C., yesterday, as a government prosecution witness in the perjury trial of Dr. Joseph Weinberg. Prior to his employment at SC, Dr Backus worked for eight years at the radiation laboratory at Berkeley wTiere he was a U. S. government employee with security ctearance for work ln secret projects. As a graduate student at the University of California in the fall of 1938, he attended a number of meetings of the Communist party stvdent group on UC campus over a period of several months, whereupon he discontinued attendance because he did not agree with the group and its program. ities committee, is being tried on charges of lying to congressional investigators when he told them he »was never a Communist and had never knowingly attended Communist meetings. Under cross-examination Biskind said that he had told the FBI in January, 1952 that he had never been a member of the Communist party. He said he had reversed his position and divulged his former Communist party affiliation because his “membership is well known” in California. He has testified that he belonged to the party from 1939 to 1947, but has never given his reason for splitting with the Reds; Mental Illness Biskind also said that he had been treated for mental illness for several years by a doctor in San Franicsco. The exact nature of the illness was not disclosed. Attorney Harry I. Rand aimed his cross-examination at what he called the unusual accuracy of Biskind’s memory regarding events that took place 14 years ago. A. TH. POLYZOIDES . . . chairman Benelux Union Discussion Set The Benelux union, an economic merger between *the Netherlands, Belgium, and Luxembourg will be discussed today by Jerome L. Heldring, director of the Netherlands Information service, at 1:15 in 129 FH. Adamantios Th. Polyzoides, lecturer in international relations, will act as chairman. Problems concerning the six-pow'er Schuman plan for an iron and coal merger in Western Europe and the projected European Defense community treaty will be discussed in a 35 minute speech by Heldring. He will also present the attitudes of small nations in Western Europe, such as Holland, and other aspects of the problems of European unity not well known and often misunderstood in the United States. A 10 to 15 minute question-and-answer period directed by Poly-zoids will follow Heldring’s speech. Gonzales, Van Alstyne Argue Over Methods To Fight Prejudice Racial discrimination in the SC fraternity system should be abolished. This was admitted by both participants in a hot debate yesterday in the international lounge. But speakers George Gonzales and Bill Van Alstyne strongly disagreed on methods of achieving this goal. i-—’ m. , A k A government witness who fol- The next iFC meeting was set f]owed Biskind on the stand re_ for Mar. 12 at the Sigma Phi fused -to say whether he knew Epsilon house.

New Schedule To Boost Grill Coffee Dunkers Patrons of the Trojan grill counter will be accommodated with a newr schedule, from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., starting Monday March 2. “The schedule now in effect, from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., is inadequate to accommodate the crowd that come in the morning and afernoon, causing the Grill fountain to be swamped,” said James F. Clark, director of Commons. The revised schedule will make it possible for students to buy coffee and doughnuts at the counter and relieve pressure on the fountain. WORLD NEWS NATIONAL NEWS Town and Gown Graduate Lounge To Open Soon A graduate students’ lounge will be opened Wednesday. Dr. Stanley R.

Dulles went before the house foreign affairs committee to urge approval of Eisenhow-er’s resolution repudiating Russian violations of World War II agreements such as the Yalta pact. He said the resolution is a warning to Russia this country will not submit to future violations. He said the only way to deal Says Eisenhower Plans No Talk Meeting With Stalin “Definite and immediate action should be taken which would affect not only SC, but fraternities on the national level as well,” stated Van Alstyne, Independent Men’s representative. AMS President Gonzales, a member of a frat^rhiljr; contended that nothing could be accomplished by force. “In fact,” he said, “fraternities have always been'private organizations. If any form of force is exerted, they will become more closely knit and removal of discriminatory clauses will be delayed another decade.” Fraternities Must Act Although many of the fraternities here are already in favor of removing these clauses, Gonzales pointed out, any action must take place within the fraternities, and only from within the fraternities. “It will only come about gradually,” he said. “Evolution instead of revolution is the only way to eliminate fraternity discrimination.” Van Alstyne, on the other hand, reasoned that the discrimination at £C creates a definite social friction. “It often discourages people from enrolling at SC,” he said, “and something must be done about it.” Discussion—Not Debate “It’s a problem, a responsibility, and action should be initiated,” he said. Both speakers pointed out that their discussion was not a formal debate. The question of discrimination was not to be resolved in terms of a negative or affirmative stand. The final goal of any SC action would be to eventually eliminate the discrimination clause in the national charters of fraternities. Van Alstyne said. “This must be accomplished from the grass-roots level,” Van Alstyne said, "beginning here with every SC student.” Action Proposed The action he proposes is threefold: 1) Campus-wide voting (to be included on this springs election ballot) to determine the average student’s opinion on the matter. 2) Senate action (depending on a result of proposal No. 1) which would be directed to all SC fraternity chapters which have discriminatory clauses in their national charters. It would encourage each fraternity to suggest removal of these clause at national conventions. 3- Administration action (on result of proposal No. 1) to exert similar influence as done by the ASSC Senate. Juvenile Dope To Be Topic of DCI Meeting When life becomes frustrating an adult knows how to ‘Jpull his horns in” and an adolescent doesn't. That, according to Dr. Simon Conrad, chief psychiatrist of the Los Angeles state mental hygiene clinic, is why the use of narcotics by juveniles is on the upswing in the United States. Dr. Conrad will be one of the speakers at the SC delinquency control institute's second annual alumni conference at 11:15 this morning in 133 FH. The Korean situation, draft, and Russia have a lot to do with juvenile frustration, he said in a pre-conference interview. Opportunity and induceiHent are the main factors in the present increase. A World War II army oversupply of narcotics has fallen into unscrupulous hands and with inducement present spreads like contagion, he said. After giving a general picture of the present narcotic epidemic, Conrad will list for the audience preventative measures for juvenile dope addiction. Conduct Conference Lt. Harold Stockbridge of the Los Angeles county sheriff’s department and DCI alumni association president, and Dan Pursuit, director of the institute, will conduct the conference. Education Vice-President Albert Raubenheimer will welcome the delegates. At 9:45, Norris E. Class, professor of social work, will rpeak on “What’s New in Delinquency Control?” At 10:30 a panel discussion on “What Are We Doing About Juvenile Drivers?” will be offered. Panel participants will be Hugh Symington. Farmers Insurance group: Joseph Havenner, Automobile Club of Southern California; and Joseph Kenney, associate professor of public administration. Certificates of appreciation from (Continued on Page 4} with the Soviets is “on the barrelhead,’ making clear in advance that they will have to liv§ up to their promised agreements. He suggested that they be made to “perform first for once” and let the United States “carry out the promises." Dulles was questioned closely about Eisenhower’s news conference remark Tuesday that he would be willing to go halfway to a meeting with Stalin if it would further chances of world peace. Members doubted the wisdom of making future agreements with the Soviets. Dulles said the President’s statement “does not reflect ex- istence of any plan” ror a meeting and that it “is entirely in the realm of conjecture.” * * * The United Nations last night postponed its Korean debate until Monday because most delegates wanted to hear first from Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Y. Vishinsky. Not a single delegation offered to take the floor tomorrow’ or Saturday. And only a couple on Monday. There was no telling when the canny Russian would answer American charges that his country “instigated” the Korean war and can stop I any time it wants. Foreign Secretary Anthony Eden left for Washington tonight to seek balm for British distress over the cold war strategy of President Eienhower’s new administration. The Chancellor of the Exchequer, R. A. Butler, went with Eden to promote a commonwealth trade-not-aid plan aimed at a long range solution of Britain’s economic crisis. Eden, Butler, and their wives went by boat train to Southampton to board the liner Queen Elizabeth, which sails at 10 a.m. today. They are due in Washington Wednesday Chicago Educator To Talk at Hillel The contrast between Jewish religious thought and Greek philosophy will be the topic of University of Chicago Professor Leo Strauss in the Hillel lounge at 8 p.m. Sunday. Dr Strauss, a profesor of political philosophy at the University of Chicago, received his PhD. from the University of Hamburg in 1921. He has taught at Columbia University, was a research assistant at the Academy of Jewish Research in Berlin, and held a fellowship at the Rockefeller Foundation of Social Science in France and England. The program is sponsored by the Hillel graduate students and all students are welcome, Goldie Levkowitz, Hile assistant director, said. Education TV Conference to Be Held Tomorrow An all-day conference on the place of the humanities in educational television will be held tomorrow in the Allan Hancock foundation. Television industry leaders and faculty members from Southland colleges and universities will meet for the session, which will include showings of educational TV programs. John W. Olmsted, chairman of the division of humanities at the University of California at Riverside, is general chairman of the conference. Other speakers will include Ralph Steele, executive director of the Joint Committee on Educational Television, Washington, D. C.; John W. Dodds. Stanford university; George H. Griffiths, mass media director of the Fund for Adult Education; and Ralph Freud, chairman of the University of California at Los Angeles department of theater arts. Jack O'Mart, director of merchandising and promotion for station KTTV, will describe the general TV audience.
