This is a departure from most concert performances, where only one guest conductor is featured, said William Schaefer, director of the Trojan Symphonic Band. A special highlight of the program will be the West Coast premiere of American composer Robert Ward's ‘‘Jubilation Overture.” The work, written during World War II while Ward was serving as leader of the 7th Infantry Division Ban»! during the Leyte an<i Okinawa campaigns, is a musical reflection of the ‘‘optimistic feeling” that the world conflict was approaching a visible end. As a complement to the Space Age, Gustav Holst’s orchestral suite “The Planets” will be featured in a special arrangement by Holst and Schaefer. The musical “masterpiece,” I written earlv in the century be-fore space travel was envisioned as a real possibility, presents a musical picture of the planets.

The program will open with the “March: Sabre and Spurs” by John Philip Sousa.

John Myers, a member of the Trojan Symphonic Band and a graduate student in the SC I School of Music, arranged Bach's “Prelude and Fugue in E Minor, originally composed for the organ, f»r tonight's program. Band director William Schaefer has also made a special ar-I rangement of the first movement of Mozart's Symphonic Concert -ante for woodwind quartet and i band. Featured soloists for the piece will be Susan Weld, oboe: Jerry Kirkbride, clarinet; John Fes-i senden. bassoon; John Wunder-! lich. horn.

Miss SC candidates will also be busy as hostesses at Alumni Day, scheduled for Saturday, April 30. Bv JOE SALTZMAN Daily Trojan City Editor S President Mike Loshin. given full power by the ASSC Senate to investigate the Knights, yesterday brought forth new evidence substantiating the charge that the Trojan Knights service organization used a “dishonest and prejudiced” procedure in selecting new members. Two witnesses testifying before the AMS investigating committee promptly leveled four similar charges at the organization. 1. Scores issued after the April 1 Knight test were changed. 2. The tests were then burned with no tradition sanctioning this. 3. The Knight interviews were conducted without a faculty adviser which is a direct violation of the Knight constitution. 4. Many of the questions asked at the oral interview were politically founded and not pertinent to a service organization. The charges added and confirmed Senator Stan Gottlieb’s motion protests over the Knights method of selection. Loshin, chairman of the investigating committee, said that he would immediately take this information to Dr. Robert J. Downey, dean of students, sometime today. Two Witnesses The two students, one who was disqualified, another whose membership in the organization is still pending, told the committee that on the Monday night after the j Friday test (Apirl 4), they went to the Phi Delta Theta house and asked for Jim Childs, author of the test. Both students asked to see their scores and were told by Berg and Childs to wait. “Then Childs came down with a list, typed up with some typewritten scores next to each name,” they said. “One person had a passing 33 mistakes which had been changed in ink to the unpassing score of 43 mistakes,” they claimed. Both men said that other scores were changed, some higher, some lower. Both students were willing to tell their stories to Dr. Downey for further action. The four man investigating committee consists of Ted Schmidt, AMS vice president and Knight: Don Waller-stein, AMS secretary-treasurer who failed the test; Dayle Barnes, senior class president, Knight, and senate Executive cabinet representative; and Loshin, who is also a Knight. Names Withheld Loshin insisted that his two witnesses not have their names revealed until they have told Dean Downey their story. He said that others have personally come to him saying that they will only speak on the matter to the dean of students and only on the condition that they remain unidentified. Loshin said that he was asking Dave Berg, president of the Knights for a full report on selection procedures. He said that the scores were not changed and that every test near the passing score, above and below, were doublechecked and in some cases, more passed than did not. “We are looking for quality and quantity and we are not trying to exclude persons who are trying to get into Knights," he said. About the burning of the tests, he said that it had been done for the past two years so that questions would not be copied for next year’s examinations and put into fraternity files. McGrath Too Busy He informed the Daily Trojan that their adviser, Dr. William McGrath, dean of students—men, was informed of the interviews one hour and a half before the interview and could not come because of more important university business. Berg called the fourth charge a “deliberate false-hood.” “The questions asked at the oral interview have always been any or every questions the Selection Board members wanted to ask,” he said. The Selection Board consists of Wayne Warga, former president; Bart Porter, Songfest chairman; Ron Anderson, former vice president; Vince Stefano, spring vice president; Jim Coulter, member-at-large; and Berg. Loshin said that he just wanted to make sure that the Knights were a good and useful organization on campus. “The responsibility of the AMS is not only to protect and guarantee the rights of all men's organizations on campus but also to see that each individual male student is protected and guaranteed equal treatment in all university activities,” he said. “Several protests have been voiced regarding the selection procedure of the Trojan Knights organization which is an officially recognized student body organization and a member of AMS,” he added. Innocent Until Guilty Loshin said that his association believes that the Knights, as any organization, is innocent until proven guilty. “Following this aim, we will leave no stone unturned to determine the validity of the charges and accusations that have been brought to light,” he said. He said that the AMS recognizes the seriousness of this situtation and will dedicate full resources to determining the facts and uncovering the truth. “In order to insure an impartial hearing of the facts, only the duly elected AMS officers will be on the investigating board.” he said. “This is the concensus of other men’s presidents on the AMS governing cabinet, as they do not wish to sit in judgment of another men’s organization,” he reasoned. Parliamentarian Gary Dubin, commenting on the AMS investigation urged by the Senate, said that “Senate members have warned Loshin that action is expected and if not forthcoming, the investigation will revert back to the Senate.”
