Seniors Must Finish Credits To Matriculate On Commencement Day. when graduating seniors receive that well known certificate attesting to four or five years of college work, there are always a few who miss the boat, or rather the parchment. I’nfulfilled graduation requirements are the cau^e of most senior's failure to graduate, <hvs Esther Schultz. SC executive secretary in charge of checking senior records. These requirements range from scholastic to curricular and residential, and many of them are pitfalls for unknowing seniors, she says. Last Visits “For instance, many students are unaware of the fad that the Iasi 28 units taken before graduation must be in SC classes. They cannot transfer credits from another college or university, hut must take these last units here." she said. However, credit for these units may be received from any University College, community service or extension course as well as the usual day class, she points out. A cumulative grade average of C in all classes taken must also lv maintained to graduate. “This stipulation means a class repeat has no effect on the cumulative since all classes will be counted." Miss Schultz says. Need C Average Some departments also require * C average cumulative of students majoring in their courses well, while others require a C in every course taken in a major, she points out. “Most departments, divisions or schools require a student to have 124 units to his credit to receive a BA or BS. However, some like the School of Architecture with a requirement of 160 units, stipulate more. Major I'nit* “The e units must include 24 for a department major and 30 for a division major. They must also include numerous lower division requirements, such as 11 units of science for LAS stu-doiiis, well as various correlative upper division courses required for ihe narticular field of study,” Miss Schultz says. bin will introduce bills asking for the establishment of a student directory and the creation of dean's lists. These three bills will !>e channelled to Senate committees for later consideration. The majority of the evening will he spent reviewing the statutes to establish an election code and an administrative arm for the ASSC governmental system. New Statute The statute calling for the establishment of an administrative arm for the ASSC government will be introduced by Senator Bill Steigerwalt. following five months of work beginning at the IdvHewild conference. Five administrative departments are being proposed by the statute, including student activities. student affairs, public re-la*:ons, eeneral services and stu-dc'-’l organizations.

Blood Drive Saves Lives There is a small 4wy named , Glenn Kasischke dying of leukemia in the County Hospital. He needs fresh blood every ! week. Trojans who wish to save his life may do so when they give their blood next week, said Den-nv Met /.let1. SC Blood Drive pub- licitv chairman. "This is a chance for SC students to live up to one of t-he five attributes of the Trojan motto courage.” said Metzler. Only 130 people have signed up to give their blood, leaving ."0 more signatures to be obtained by 3 p.m. Friday to reach the quota of 700. Signups are being taken in front of the Student Union and Founders Hall from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. "The process of giving hlood is painless and takes only 15 minutes,” said Metzler. "Donors and their familes can draw from the SC Blood Bank for life instead of paying $25 to $30 per pint,” he added. BARNES STARTS PLANNING iFOR CLASS ALUMNI CLUB | The Senior Class Organization this week unanimously decided to re-establish the ( lass Club Alumni Program,.a characteristic feature of recent graduating classes. Plans for the senior prom will be discussed tonight at a special meeting of the Senior Class Organization at the Theta Xi fraternity house from 6 to 7 p.m., announced Dayle Barnes, senior class president. Prom Chairman Jim Pieper will report on the progress of his committee and call for suggestions. In discussing the alumni program at its last meeting. class leaders felt the merits of the traditional program outweigh those of the experimental plan adopted last year by the class.of ’59. Last year’s plan placed tbe responsibilty f:>r the operation of the graduating class and its contributions to the university on certain individuals who would form the only tie between the class and the alumni association. Barnes said the class of ’60 felt that such a “fragmented post-graduate structure’’ will not be able to serve the best interests of the university. “One of the reasons advanced in defense of last vears trial group was its *open-mcmbersl?ip’ character,” said Barnes. The “open-membership’’ structure permitted those students who were for one reason or another unable lo contribute as undergraduates the chance to help the university when they later found themselves in a position to do so. Professor Says GOP Is Big Business Tool (Editor’s note: This is the fourth in a series of interviews with SC students and facu ty on their political affiliations. We will discuss politics as seen by Democratic, Republican and independent voters.) By MTA BISS Assistant to the Editor Politics is not a question of doing something for the people but a question of who runs the party, an SC historian said todav. Capital Punishment To Be Viewed at Noon ANGRY Dr. Russell L. Caldwell, asso- j ciate professor of history and president of the Faculty Club, maintained that he is a member , of the Democratic Party because that party is controlled by the people rather than by big busi- ! ness. “The Republican Party since i „ . , , . , speak on “Transitions in Scien- Reconstruction has demonstrated , ........................ that it is the party of big business and has subscribed to the philosophy of social Darwinism,” he said. Dr. Caldwell explained that this philosophy is based on the premise that the strong will survive, while the weak must look out for themselves. "This attitude was clear in the 1920s and it is clear in our present administration, for after 20 years of Democratic liberalism the Republicans have returned to the same' trough of the ’20s— \ School at UC for more than 23 favoring big business.” he added. He pointed to a published declaration bv former Sen. Robert Cal Med Dean To Talk Here Dr. J. B. Saunders, dean of the School of Medicine at the Univesrity of California, will speak on tific Thought in Ancient Egypt” at the SC School of Medicine's humanities lecture tomorrow. Born in South Africa. Dr. SaundeRS was educated at the University of Edinburgh and served on the facully there lie-fore coming to the United States. In the past, Dr. Saunders also served as a surgeon in his native South Africa. Associated with the Medical Taft in which Taft held that he lost the 1952 presidential nomination because of pressure from New York business groups and 80 per cent of the nation's newspapers which are Republican orientated. “Big business feared Taft because he began to show' liberal tendencies with his introduction of a federal housing bill,” Dr. Caldwell said. (Continued on page 2) years, he has become noted as an authority on the medical history of the ancient fertile crescent and a student of medical history in general. His latest book deals with the practice of medicine in Turkey during the ages before Christ. Dr. Saunders’ talk will be the third in this year's humanities series, which is designed to give medical students an opportunity to hear speakers in areas unrelated to medicine and to hear topics in the field of humanities discussed. Sigma Chis Get 4-Week Social Pro By RON KIBBV Daily Trojan Managing Editor I Sigma Chi fraternity was sentenced to four weeks of social probation today for violating IFC Hell Week regulations. The punitive action was taken against the social fraternity following charges that its pledges ; stalled traffic on Hoover blvd. by running down the middle of the street. Men’s Judiciary Council announced its decision after nearly j two weeks of deliberation. The Council’s ruling provides that the four weeks of social probation begin Saturday at 9 a.m. Fair Decision Although the decision was considered fair by Sigma Chi members. house officers expressed their belief that a premature decision leaked out of the Men's Judicial organization and was used as a "smear gimmick’’ during spring rushing. "It is evident to us that there was a leak in Men’s Judicial before we were notified of the final decision and that the information was used against Sigma Chi in the lowest form of dirty rushing ; imaginable,” a house officer said. Running Pledges Charges were first brought against the fraternity when its pledges were observed running down Hoover blvd. causing traffic to be tied up. House representatives explained that Sigma Chi had just moved into the old Kappa Sig house. 928 W. 28th st„ from its temporary house on 27th st. prior to Hell Week. During Hell Week activities pledges had to walk from the new’ location to the old house three times a day for meals. The incident occurred during one of these trecks, it was reported. This is the first time that Sigma Chi has been placed on social probation. In spite of the “dirty rushing” charges by Sigma Chi members, the fraternity did not evidence signs of being damaged by a premature leak of the council's ruling. Rushing reports indicate that the fraternity topped all other fraternities in the spring JOSEPH SHELL . . . to debate r ★ i Students Ask State to Ban Death Penalty By JAY BERMAN Both sides of the controversial capital punishment question will be represented on campus today as two groups with completely opposite stands hold separate meetings to discuss the issue.

Capital punishment would be immediately abolished in California if students interviewed by the Daily Trojan could make the iinal decision, a campus poJ revealed yesterday. Because of ideological and legal controversy surroynding the latest reprieve of convict-author Caryl Chessman. randomly chosen students were asked to present their views on California's death penalty. Although not part of the question, Chessman's case inevitably crept into the answers. On the sbject of capital punishment, there was general agreement among those polled that the present system needs to be corrected. In contrast to the “wisecracks” receivd in earlier attempts to cover the question, students yesterday all showed evidence of serious personal thought which was absent just one week ago. English major Walt Judson wa; representative of most when he said, “I can’t agree with the planed destruction of human life for any reason.” This idea, along with the feel-ig that man. as a race, has outgrown the “eye for an eye” concept cropped up time and again. Opposition to the death sentence also came from Gwen Petti, a psychology major, who took a different slant. “I know if I were on a jury, I ! couldn't judge a man guilty if I knew he would be put to death,’’ she declared. As soon as the specific case of Caryl Chessman entered the discussion, however, opinions became diverse and heated.
