Scientists from all over the Prominent Republican Will Address Students The Republican Party whip for the State Assembly will speak to a group of California government classes today on the problems of being a state legislator. Bruce Sumner, Assemblyman from Ihe 74th District in Orange County, will talk to three of Dr. Bernard L. HyInk's classes in general studies 204b and general studies 2(>4c. The California legislator will discuss the forces lie has to cope with bolh on and off the State Assembly floor. He will be speaking to the 10, 11 and 1:15 classes, all of which are studying California government. “The program is designed so that students interested in California government will be a hie to learn it first-hand from members of the legislature," explained Dr. Hyink. Next week a Democrat Assemblyman will address the government classes, so that students can “gel the scoop" from both sides of the political fence, said Dr. Hyink. Sumner is now ser\ ing his second term in the S'ate Assembly, having been eiected to the legislative hnd\ in 19/>6 and 1958.

Also in his second term with Ihe Assembly, the Orange County Democrat from Ihe 75th District is in one of the “key spots” i in the legislature, said Dr. Hyink. • Hanna is also a member of , the Committee on Education and ihe Committee on Government Efficiency and Economy. He received a law' degree from UCLA. world come to use the facilities of the Hancock Foundation. Dr. Chambers will coordinate all research work by members of the Hancock Foundation scientific staff and expand it into other fields not now covered by tjie university. He received his BA and MS degrees in 1927-28 from Texas Christian University, which gave him its distinguished alumnus award in 1957. He also earned a PhD from Princeton University in 1930. Taught Biology After teaching biology at TCU two years, Dr. Chambers was on the faculty of the biophysics department at ihe University of Pennsylvania for 14 years and also was an associate in pediatrics and lecturer in the Graduate School of Medicine there. He was chief of the Physical Defense Division of the Chemical Corps Biological Laboratories at Fort Detrick, Md., in 1946-50. Director of Research He was also director of research for the Robert A. Taft Engineering Center of the U.S. Public Health Service in Cincinnati from 1950 to 1956 when he came to the APCD in Los Angeles. Dr. Chambers has published about 90 technical articles on ultrasonics, physical and chemical properties of viruses and other micro-organisms, defense against biological warfare, air pollution ■»nd its control, and the application of physical instrumentation in biological research. He holds about a dozen patents relaled to processing with sound waves, new therapeutic 1 and immunizing agents, and instrumentation design. A drive for books for Korean schools began today as Spurs, Squires and the Greater University commit-lee launched a campaign to put more English books in Korean classrooms. This week the three groups are sponsoring an all-out drive to get 8000 books to ship to Korea. A plaque will be awarded to the living group that has collected the most books at the end of the week. Boxes for hooks will be located in dormitories, on the row and in strategic campus locations. Student leaders of the drive believe the goal may be surpassed if each student will contribute one book. Carole Whitson, Spur chairman of the drive, said, “This is a crucial job at the moment. We must keep Korea as an ally and help spread good will through Trojan books.” Last Thursday the Korean consulate general spoke to members of Spurs, Squires and sophomore service honoraries on the need for tv>oks in Korea. He said that since the students form the support for the politics in Korea, they must be kept informed. The types of books that are needed in Korea are in the fields of general science, medicine, engineering, pharmacy, rn^th, law, history, political science, economics, agriculture and forestry. Dictionaries and encyclopedias are especially needed. Rooks should be fairly well bound or tightly bound. No books published before 1945 can be accepted unless they are literary classics. No light fiction or mystery stories should be donated. Guest Professor Classes Students AMS Group Slates Report Chairman >1ike Loshin said that his AMS committee would report the results of their investigation of the Trojan Knights service organization at this Thursday's Senate meeting. Loshin said that there would he no public statement about the committee's findings until that time. “We will then present to the ASSC Senate all of our findings. However, the committee will not make any conclusions about thp subject,” he said. Charges against the Knights «ere leveled two weeks ago. Since that time the Knights havp repeatedly denied the charges of dishonesty and prejudice. 9 Alumni Receive Honors At 25th Annual Gathering of ccle- their tro IQ.' A»a V. 'rt nine Saturday.

He is a former member of the Indiana State Board of Education and ex-president of the Associated c'ollcges of Indiana. During World War II he was director of manpower utilization for the Federal government. Alumni merit awards, recog- nizing worthy achievement w hich has reflected credit upon the university and each of her alumni. were given to George Per-rine of the class of 1930, chairman of the Illinois Commence Commission and president of the National Association of Railway and Utility Commissioners; Dr. C. C. Trillingham. County Superintendent of Schools, former president of the American Association of School Administrators and member of the class of 1933; and Lloyd.F. Hunt, chief electrical engineer for Southern California Edison Co., inventor and patent holders, 1919 graduale in electrical engineering and the first student in 1929 to receive the professional degree of electrical engineer. Alumni serv ice awards in recognition of loyal service to the SC alumni association, its objectives and ideals, went to Ralph R. Haney, engineer, advisor to fraternities and member of the clave of 1917; Mrs. John McCall, Phoenix, secretary of the Trojan alumni club in that cilv and member of the 1932 class; ami Franklin B. Skeele, manager of the SC news bureau There isn’t any difference in college students in any part of the country, said Dr. Wayne LaSalle Townsend, visiting professor of law' now at SC. They always fall into three groups: the “eager beaver” in the front row, the “hider” in the back row, and the “note-taker” in between, he said. Dr. Townsend should know. He has been teaching law since 1928 at Yale, Tulane, W'estern Reserve and Washington University. Hundreds of students have been in his classes in 32 years. Older Students If there is any difference in students, Dr. Townsend said, it's the law’ students at SC are from three to five years older than those he has had recently in St. Louis. He can’t explain it; he just finds it so. Also, his SC law students are interested and inquiring, Dr. j Townsend said. He has a reputation of always being two jumps ahead of every ; student. “I never get out of the dass-I room from 45 minutes to an I hour after class,” he said. “Dis-j cussions always continue long I after class is over.” Legion Lex Dr. Townsend came to SC in February as t he third Legion I I,ex distinguished visiting pro-' fessor of law. Legion Lex is one of eight financial support groups for SC’s ! professional schools. The law group, organized four I years ago. has 371 members, each of whom gives SI 00 a year to enrich the academic program at SC. Members of I>egion Lex are lawyers and judges who were graduated from the SC Law School, or friends who are alumni of other schools who wish to support SC. The visiting prores~or is the former dean of tawr at Washington University, and he leaches courses in contracts and resti- tution at SC. He is a graduate of Nebraska and Yale. The fourth edition of his book, “Ohio Corporation Law' and Practice,” will be published soon. He is a labor arbitrator in St. Louis and Cleveland in addition to teaching. Admiralty Law An attorney just entering the profession would do well to get into admiralty practice, particularly on the Pacific Coast where the next great world ports will be located, Dr. Townsend said. There will be plenty of compensation cases for injuries to employees, he insisted. Other “coming” fields of law which he feels present the best opportunities for successful practice are in the fields of administrative Jabor and tort practice. Dr. Townsend and his wife. Dorothy, have an apartment in Los Angeles, and are planning many trips to the desert and interior regions of the Southland before they return to St. Louis and their farm 30 miles out of that city. They are also having many visits w'ith their daughter, Nancy, who is Mrs. M. E. Pyle of La Mirada: their son-in-law, who is an appliance dealer; and grandson, Marvin, nearly a year old. Final Reading Of Sequence To Be Today Grads to Talk About Scrolls “Christianity and the Dead Sea Scrolls’’ will he discussed today at the graduate student meeting at noon in the Presbyterian-Episcopal Student Center by Dr. Gerald Larue, associate professor of religion. Dr. Larue will continue his last week’s lecture on the examination of the Dead Sea Scrolls and the relation of their content to historical development in the Christian church. The scrolls’ impact on faith in Ihe church and their relation to the ministry of Jesus will be the topics discussed by Dr. Larue, who is considered to be an authority on the Dead Sea Scrolls. The Dead Sea Scrolls are considered by many to be the most important archeological discovery of ihe century, casting new light on both the Old and New (Continued on Pa4;e 3) > Testaments. Adventures of a young boy who waits for things to happen on a park bench will be presented in today s English noon reading by James Durbin, lecturer in English. Excerpts from “Malcolm,” by James Purdy, will he read at 12:30 in 120 FH for the last noon reading of the semester. The theme for the readings has been "Writers of the 1960s.” “Malcolm,” published in 1959, is a picaresque novel, that is it is loosely constructed—similar to the form of “Don Quixote”—and moves from one episode to another, said Durbin. The young boy Malcolm has a series of adventures with the people he meets while sitting on the park bench. A fortmne teller is the first person Malcolm meets. It is through this character that he is intorduced to the other "people" in the novel. Durbin will read one episode from the novel—about the millionaire and his wife who adopt Malcolm. Purdy is a young American writer who has also published a volume of short stories, “Color of Darkness.” He was recently awarded a Gugenheim Fellowship. “Ilis work is difficult *o describe,” said Durbin. “It is out of the ordinary, kind of like black olives—you either have a 1 feeling for it or you don't. Eighty-t hree scholars from nearly every area of university study were named to Phi Kappa Ph' the only all-uinversity campus honorary, last Friday. The students were tapped by the SC branch of the national honor society for membership in the organization.

Editor Demed Seat on Board Dr. Robert J. Downey, »lean of students, rejected an ASSC senatorial motion to put the Daily Trojan editor on the revised Board of Publications because “it would be a little difficult to have a person on the Board to which he is responsible.’’ The dean said that there is adequate representation on the Board through the director of the School of Journalism; the Manager of Publications; the student manager of publications; and the student body president. Editor Larry Fisher, hearing of Dean Downey’s decision, said that the reasoning did not seem clear to him. made public at the annual Alumni Day luncheon on the campus by attorney Ralph E.
