They can also be purchased in blocks by any group that wants to buy more than one. Classroom collections will be conducted by volunteers through Thursday to spark the drive towards its goal. rITie eight-for-one Trojan Chest drive allows students to contribute to eight oustanding charities at one time. “The concentrated Trojan Chest drive eliminates numerous solicitations from varied charities throughout the year. Students only have to make one contribution, which is distributed to eight different charities,” says Vince Stefano. drive chairman. Money Divided This year $400 of the drive will go to the annual ASSC Christmas show and party given for underprivileged, orphaned and handicapped children during the Christmas holidays. Twenty-five per cent of the remainder will be given lo the SC YWCA in the “charity-be-gins-at-home” phase of the drive. Another quarter will be given to the World University Service, an international organization which provides aid for students throughout the world. The American Red Cross will receive 15 per cent of the contributions, while the Red Cross College Activity Fund, Los Angeles chapter, will get four percent. SCerve Recommend« Stefano pointed out that SC receives a great deal more than this amount in funds and services from the Red Cross Fund. I I-ast year, the organization donated $100 to aid the SC blood drive alone. Allocations to the various charities are recommended by the SCerve board which screens all solicitations and then makes recommendations to the Trojan Chest commitlee. j*he committee either accepts the recommendations or modifies them, after which they are sent to the Senatefor final approval. “Trojan Chest is one of the most worthwhile activities in v*hich our student body is aked to participate each year,” Stefano says. 14 Candidates The drive gives SC student« and faculty the opportunity to help someone else — “lots of someone elses,” he points out. “This year, more than ever before, it is the concern of every SC student to present his university in the best possible light by giving to Troy Chest, a fund which benefits not only the student ?>ut also his school and community.” the chairman says. The Trojanality contest which i« highlighting this “camoaign of benefits” is currently offering 14 candidates for student vote, all of whom must be enrolled for a minimum of 12 units. TAKES 50 PARTS Shakespeare Star Will Solo Tonight TELEVISION STARS-Dr. Rene Belle (left), head of SC's French department and Maj. Richard H. Kern, USMC (right), assistant professor of naval science will teach French literature and the American Civil War over television every Monday through Friday mornings from 6:30 to 7 on station KNXT. Two units of college credit will be given for the French literature course and no texts needed. University to Add 2 Shows To KNXT Academic Fare By JOE SALTZMAV Dally Trojan City Editor Shakespearean actor Philip Hanson, a man with a multiple personality and a single chair, will become Shakespeare’s ‘‘Kings and Clowns” in a one-man performance tonight at SC. “I come before you an actor without scenery, without costumes, without fellow players and without a play,” explains Hanson who will give his one-night performance at 8 p.m. in Stop Gap Theatre. 50 Characters The 35-year-old actor, who Dr. Frank Raxter calls one of the : 1 finest Shakesperean performers acting today, will become more | than 50 characters in his two-hour performance. He will use only a chair and two spotlights as he moves from character to character taking the part of as many as three or four personages in a single sequence. Dressed as a 20th century man. in modern clothes, Hanson shows the universal untimeliness By BARBARA EPSTEIN SC will expand its academic activities to include two new university taught and sponsored television class over KNXT beginning Monday, SC President Norman Topping and Robert D. Wood. General Manager of KNXT. announced yesterday. The two new classes, one in French literature and one on the American Civil War, will be broadcast every morning from 6:30 10 7 over Channel 2. They mark a new milestone in higher education via the television airwaves. SC and Station KNXT pioneered higher education by television in July, 1953, with the televising of the first West Coast college credit course. Launched Baxter The pilot higher education courses, in Shakespeare, launched SC’s Dr. Frank C. Baxter, professor of English, on a successful television career. The new classes will swing into a 15 week spring session of instruction starting Monday morning with the first broadcast in the series. ‘‘The Great Storytellers,” taught by Dr. Rene Relie, head of the SC French department, will be the first of the two classes to go over the airwaves. It will he broadcast every Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning. Civil War The second class, “The Last Full Measure,” a historical account of the American Civil War, will begin Tuesday. Instruction will be given every Tuesday and Thursday by Major Richard H. Kern. USMC. assistant professor of naval science. The course, not offered for col ege credit, requires no text' books. The two-unit comparative literature course will be given for college credit. Tuition fee will be $50. Enrollment forms may be obtained from the Information Office. All viewers wanting to receive credit for the course must register through the university. Both Vativ morning classroom sessions are being produced by Dr. William Stedman, administrative assistant to President lopping. KNXT Public Affairs Manager Mike Kizziah is coordinating the project for the station. “The Great Storytellers” will survey the course of French literature during the 19th century. The prominent works and major stories of such authors as Hugo, Stendahl. Dumas, Balzac, Flaubert, Sand and Zola will be studied. Paperback Texts All textbooks required for the course will be available in paperback editions help keep down the cost of taking the course for credit. The final examination will be given on the university campus. The meaning of the Civil War and the battles which keynoted the bitter North-South struggle will form the major areas of emphasis for the non-credit course, “The Last Full Measure.” Dr. Belle's new television course in comparative literature will be his initial appearance before the TV cameras as an educator. At SC since, he is also a contributor to the Modern Language Forum, “Columbia Dictionary of Modern European Literature,” “The French Review” and various French newspapers. The French scholar has acted as technical adviser for several motion pictures. He recently translated a script for Metro-Goldwyn Mayer. Among the many books which Dr. Relle has written are “Promenades en France, “Twenty Stories of the Twentieth Century” and “Pas a Pas,” a college French grammar text. He has taught at the Lycees of Beauvais and Janson in Paris, the University of Aix-Marseille, Mills College and Stanford University. Dr. Belle received his MA and PhD from the University of Paris.

Werkmeister. The director of the School of Philosophy will tell of “Science and the Problem of Man." when he continues the Philosophy Forum series on "Science and Man.” today at 4:15 p.m. In Mudd Hall. I.ife Better I >r. Werkmeister w ill show bc-w science has transformed human surroundings and made life better, while it has simultaneously introduced dangers that never existed !>efore. “Science, as it gives control over nature, makes possible such comforts as air conditioning, artificial lights and abundant food. ‘‘This is ail fine.” Dr. Werkmeister said, “but science also gnes us tbines 'ike the atomic bomb and other forms of destruction. The laws of science seem to work both wavs.” The philosophier will attempt to demonstrate that it is up io I uà il to divide between me constructive and destructive ends of technology. “Which end we choose is a question of values, not of science.” he decided. "Ultimately, moral responsibility will provide the answer. In his talk, the third in the Forum series. Dr. Werkmeister plans to make clear the ambivalence between the good and bad of scientific developments. He will also |>oint out that thinkers must choose between them. Man Himself “Science gives knowledge of reality and of man himself, but it is debatable whether man's spiiitual side and moral res|>on-sibilitv can l>e explained ‘scientifically,' ” he said. “One must consider whether laws are developed sufficiently to account for the meaning of human existence.” “One must also wonder whether there is a pla^e where religion, morals or philosophy must take over and the physical and social sciences learp off,” he added. There is, in addition, the problem of whether philosophv or morals or religion give us a truer picture of man than science can in som« areas.” Dr. Werkmeister said he be- lieves, and will tty to prove, that physics and chemistry can explain the physical w'orld and the physical body but that they j leave the mind and the spirit unexplained. His lecture follows that of Dr. Gordon Matheson, who described “The Meaning of Science in the Twentieth Century.” Dr. Matheson told how general laws and theories are formed and described the reasoning involved in their construction. The assistant professor of philosophy characterized explanation- and prediction as the aims of all the sciences. 6t*tli Forum First in the series, which is the 60th semi-annual forum of ihe School of Philosophy, was Dr. Wilbur Long, who told of ! “The New Scope of th« Seventeenth Century.” Fourth speaker in the series will be Dr. J. Wesley Robb, head i of the department of religion and director-elect of the renew- J ed School of Religion. The current forum commemo- j rates the 300th anniversary of the founding of the Royal So-I liety of England. There »re 29 seats available on next year's ASSC Senate, and there have been only 15 petitions for senatorial positions submitted. Elections Director Eddie Tannenbaum announced today. Tannenbaum said that because of the limited time left to check the eligibity of candidates before prinitng the ballots, all candidates for either senatorial offices or school presidencies and vice presidencies must turn in their petitions today or tomorrow. “There are now 15 candidates for the ASSC Senate, barring any disqualifications,” Tannenbaum said. Must File The elections director reporled that candidates must file their petitions in 215 SU by 3 p.m. tc-morrow. “Students who do not do this.” Tannenbaum warned, “will not have their names on the ballots, and thev mav run only as write-in candidates.” 10 Hopefuls Co Foeless Candidates will run unopposed in 10 of the 16 all-school offices as the result of the Court of Appeals’ decision to rule sophomore presidential hopeful Lynn Guerra ineligible. Originally there were nine contested offices, hut through ineligibilities and decisions to drop out, the list has been chopped to six. Guerra was ruled ineligible because he failed to earn the grade-point average required for the office. An average above the all-universitv mark is demanded by the ASSC Constitution. Now that Guerra is out of the sophomore presidential race, the field is clear for the remaining candidate. Steve Perlof. Next year's sophomores will also have only one name on the ballot for their vice president, Jackie Winn. Although the junior class vice presidency has only one nominee in Mike Cohen, there are two (Continued on pag« 2) ASSC President Wallv Kara-bian announced that six fields of study, including 1667 students, would not be represented on the Senate next year “because they have made no effort to either submit a constitution for their fields, or to turn in a roll call.** This means lhat no students from the six major fields—education, Graduate Schpol. law, library science, medicine and social work—may petition to become senators. The largest field left out will be that of education, which listed an enrollment of 565 students last year. Lose Six The loss of the six f i p 1 d s leaves 13 fields of study remaining to fill 29 Senate seals. Karabian. who returned to his duties yesterdav after a three-day absence, during which he attended the Air Force Assembly with AWS President Carol Howe, said that all the remaining fields have received “Stage One Recognition.” In other words, the 13 fields have submitted workable constitutions, p It hough Karabian said that 7 of the fields have not sent representatives to make the changes in their constitutions recommended by the ASSC Executive C-ihinet. Th? vagrant fields named were architecture. health-PE-lherapv, music, 7>harnrioy, biological sciences. humar.tl'es and dentistry. Gary Dubin. administrative assistant to the ASSC president, said that no field will be officially recogmzed without his approval as chairman of the rules committee. Dubin gave March 23 ps a deadline for recognition, stressing that no senator can sit at th" Senat» meitinsrs unless his field has received official reeog- 1 (Continued on page 2) Six freshman English sections are now using the text, “Writing from Experience.” by Dr. Burton O. Kurth, SC assistant English professor. The book, which was published at the beginning of the semester, was written by Dr. Kurth and Richard Condin, a former SC instructor. Written as a freshman English text book, the approach to the book is language training and use. “In part, it developed out of the SC freshman English program,” said Dr. Kurth. The professor said he wrote the textbook to get “ideas one feels workable and valid into textbook form.” Dr. Kurth also published another book last October, ent'tled “Milton and Christian Heroism, Riblical Epic Themes and Forms in the Seventeenth Century England.” It is a scholarly history of ideas. “The study is much broader than Milton, but actually culminates in him,” Dr. Kurth said. The textbook concerned itself with the heroism of Christianity and the epic themes and forms inherent in the Bible as represented in 17th century England. Dr. Kurth based his present textbook on many years of teaching freshman students and explained that it could be used as a guide to the actual teaching of the course. It includes his ideas on the | subject of teaching freshman ! and he feels it is a workable classroom textbook. PHILIP HANSON ... to perform of the 16th century Shakesperean drama. Speaking in one man dialogues, he uses a “royal” chair as his only scenery, supporting cast and fellow player. The chair, which Hanson carries in a specially designed suitcase, gives the appearance of a throne with its sharp, tall back and its red felt cross-pieces. Devised by Edmund Chavez, master carpenter of the Oregon Shakespearean Festival, the “prop” is built to dismantle into a suitcase. The chair has traveled with Hanson throughout the country. “Kings and Clowns” has successfully played to junior high schools, high schools, colleges, universities and civic groups throughout the country. It has also received much critical acclaim. Hanson can be a Shakesperean clown in the famed tradition of Will Kempe. playing such buffoon roles as Bottom, Dogberry', Malvolio and Feste. And in a moment, he can be as noble a king or royal character as Lear, Hamlet, Macbeth, Richard II and Henry V. Group to Plan Songfest Sets Props, lighting and staging for I960 Songfest will be decided upon today when Songfest directors meet In 129 FH at 3:15 p.m. to discuss the technical problems of the production. Approximately 40 directors, representing entries from the various living groups and organizations, are required to attend the meeting. All applications for Songfest participation must be turned In today to the Special Events Office. 230 SU by 5 p.m., reports Songfest Chairman Bart Porter. Hanson can be a Shakesperean tional humor to his one-man show but maintains the normal variety for which Shakespeare has long been note^d. He explains that only with the great Bard can an actor balance humor with satire, drama with tragedy. Played Cassius Hanson has been acquainted with Shakespeare since his playing of Cassius and Casca in “Julius Caesar,” in the eighth grade. In his first season with the Shakesperean festival at Ashland. Oregon, in 1949. he amazed critics ard scholars by performing the widely divergent roles of Richard II. Tybalt. Hortensio, Demetrius and Montano. His early training at Washing State University as an actor in radio also offered him an opportunity to exercise his flexibility by playing all the male parts in a story serial. During “Alice in Wonderland,” he performed for 10 minutes playing eight characters. Honor Society To Host Top Sophs, Frosh With the hope of encouraging lower division scholarship. Phi Beta Kappa, national honorary scholastic society, will honor freshmen and sophomores with high averages at a Recognition Dinner Thursday evening. All freshmen and sophomores ; with grade point averages of 3.5 I or better have been invited to attend the Thursday dinner, said Dr. Theodore H. E. Chen, president of the SC Epsilon chapter. Step Forward The Recognition Dinner marks a step forward in recognizing students who have demonstrated high scholastic ability during low er division university work, said Dr. Chen. “We believe that in order to promote an intellectual atmosphere in the university, we must begin at the lower division lerel to emphasize the importance of scholastic achievement,” he continued. Best Effort “Instead of waiting until the senior year to admit outstanding students to honor societies, we w ant to encourage lower division students to give their best efforts to intellectual pursuit.” Eighty-five freshmen and sophomores have received invitations to the dinner, to be held in the foyer of Town and Gown at 6:15 Thursday. Of these, eleven students-.-one freshman and ten sophomores have achieved 4.0 grade point averages, equivalent to a grade of “A” in all university courses taken. Religion Brings Freedom, Visiting Preacher Believes Today s Weather The weatherman predicts continued sunshine for SC and the surrounding I>os Angeles area today. High today will be slightly higher than yesterday’s 72. There will be some cloudiness tills morning, otherwise sunny with no eye irratation. Religious men are the freest i on earth because they have pledged their loyaly to the highest thing they know—Gbd. So declared Dr. Ronaid E. Sleeth, professor of preaching at Vanderbilt University, Nashville, Tenn.. who is speaking this week at SC as part of a concentrated religious discussion program. “A capacity for independence is the mark of an educated man,” Dr. Sleeth said yesterday in a talk at the YWCA Hospitality House. Round by Herd But in spite of their desire to be free, he declared, educated people, including many college students, are “bound by the wish to be part of the herd,” thereby directing their efforts into a mere search for securtiy. Dr. Sleeth said his remaining talks at the YWCA, 2:30 p.m. j today and tomorrow, will chal- j lenge students to “withdraw | from the herd and search for the highest loyalty.” An allegience to God allow'* a man to think for himself while I still maintaining concern for his fellow man, he explained. “Therefore, by binding himself j to (Tod, a man is actually fleeing himself.” Dr. Sleeth said that all pee- ^le dedicate themselves to something. "whether it is religion, scientism or materialism.” ★ ★ ★ Father Tells Week s Talks A special religious activity schedule for this week w^as announced by the Rev. J. E. Weyer, Newman director, in connection with Dr. Ronald Sleeth’s talks on the campus. Father Weyer said the first of many religious ac*?^ies held on campus this week will start tonight. Father John Reilly, principal of Conaty High School, will speak at the Town and Gown Foyer at 5:15 p.m. At 7:15 tonight, Father John Languille, director of CYO, will speak at the Kappa Alpha house and at 8 p.m. Father William Hutson, assistant director of CYO, will speak at Navy Hall. Father Weyer will talk at Alpha Phi at 5 p.m. and at Delta Gamma at 5:30 tomorrow. Father John Shanks, S.J., Ix>-yola University, will sj>eak before Kappa Alpha Theta at 6 tomorrow night. “Thojie who throw over religion for something else are tho?e who don't know anything about it. I challenge those people to examine the claims of the Christian faith—not by their caricatures but by thorough study. "After all, one doesn't learn astronomy by looking at the daily horoscopes,” Dr. Sleeth pointed out. Serious Study If. after seriously studying Christianity's claims, the student still cannot pledge his loyalty to God, at least his opinion will be an educated one, he concluded. Dr. Sleeth will ask students “Do Wye Dare to be Dedicated?” in this afternoon's talk. Yesterday, his topic was “Do We Dare to he Different?” In his final talk at the YWCA tomorrow, th# Yale uniyersity graduate will ask “Do We Dare to Do?” In addition to his YWCA talks. Dr. Sleeth is participating in Fireside Chats this week at several student living units. He has also scheduled luncheon discussions with the Hillel and Latter Day Saints organizations.
