Score Field-of-Study Representation Plan By BERNARD PETERS Six senators-at-large yesterday voiced disapproval of the “field of study” form of representation in student government as written in the newly proposed ASSC Constitution. At a special meeting for Senators-at-large, the adversaries of the unique means of as soon as the recommendations of the Master Survey Plan commit lee are made. The committee was created in June to strdv what higher education facilities and curriculum California has now and to determine how to handle most effectively 1 he 300.000 new students expectcd to seek a college education in this state within the next ten years. Problem Critical "The problem has become a critical one," he said. More than 100 bills were submitted to the state legislature during the 19.19 session dea'ing with the creation and expansion of university facilities in California. Some sought to establish 14 new state college campuses, he said. Others attempted to revise completely the system of controlling higher education. “Some would create a new Stale College Board,” he said. At present the State Board of Education, a ten-man committee, t handles primary and secondary schools affairs in addition to higher education. Need Study The need for a thorough study of ihe problem has beeome “very serious." he continued. The Master Survey Plan for Higher Education in the State of California, in studving the enrollment figures, student selection procedures, costs of higher education, physical needs of camnuses and the ability of California lo finance higher education. will provide a basis for effective legislation, Ludiam pre-dido '. The problems confront in" the seven-man committee and five subcommittees are numerous, he said. Decid • Role “They must decide what the role of the state college is to be j and how far it will be allowed to expand.” he added. “They must find out what part the junior college will pay in California's future, and how far the University of California should grow." Ludiam explained. (Continued on Page CONSTITUTIONAL DISCUSSION — Senate members gather to discuss new ASSC constitution introduced last week. Clockwise around the table are: Marianne Arrington, Ren Goodgame, Gene Brooks, Gary Dubin, Mardi Wuifesteig, Daily Trojan Photo By Jim Anders Harold Fong and Ken Unmachi. All are senatcrs-at-large except Dubin who is parliamentarian and chairman of the new constitutional presidential committee. Voting on the new document will take place Monday, Nov. 2. Snow, Floods Fail to Hinder Cone ere Tour RiOT RESULT Despite being marooned by snowstorms and floods, the concert team of Marilyn Horne, so-p r a n o, and Mrs. Gwendolyn Williams Koldofsky, pianist, is still on schedule in its tour of Alaska, according to word received at the SC School of Music. The Long Beach singer and her accompanist will return to Los Angeles in time to give the 9th annual Koldofsky memorial scholarship fund concert in Bo-vn-d auditorium. Pec. S. Miss Horne and Mrs. Koldofsky scheduled concerts in 16 cities in Alaska and British Columbia during November. “The tour is going well.” Mrs Koldofsky wrote friends at Southern California. “Marilyn is singing fabulously and having a great success. Everything is marvelous — wonderful people and hospitality and breath-taking scenery. “Our only troubles have been in reaching places. We sat on one of the Queen Charlotte islands for hours, and walked a plank across a rushing river when the bridge between Kiti-mat and Terrace was washed out. We’ve been marooned by one snowstorm and had to postpone our Sitka concert a day,” she said. Tighter Row Control To Be Topic for IFC Bv LYNDA El.YEA A special meeting of the Inter-Fraternity Council has been called today to discuss plans for tighter fraternity control as a result of the Saturday night riot on the Row, announced Dr. William McGrath, assistant dean of students—men. , Faculty Club s New Building To Be Subject Rovvites reportedly thronged a car driven by a 22-year-old UCLA engineering student, Eugene Kruse, breaking windows with beer cans, springing the car doors and letting the air out of the tires. The riot occurred after the SC-UCLA football game Saturday afternoon. No one in the car or the crowd was injured, but a policeman on the scene caught an SC medical student who was letting air out of the tires on a patrol car. The student was turned over to university officials until thorough investigation has been conducted, Dr. McGrath said. “University administrators believe in peer control, or students governing themselves.” Dr. McGrath said. “Consequently, we have turned the problem of Row conduct over to the IFC.” Recommendations will he made by the IFC to tighten re-ulations on Ihe Row and decrease further actions of a rough or juvenile nature. Ben Hur Premiere Will Help Meds, Bring $75,000 to Scholarship Fund Education as well as entertainment will lie the result of tonight's premiere of the film version of the epic novel "Ben Hur.” For amid the glitlering spot-Ughts and stars that make up a Tloltvwood premiere, movie-go-rrs at the Egyptian Theater will conti ibute needed dollars to the SC School of Medicine scholar- ; shin fund.

Tommy Trojan again is greeting students as they enter the Tro-| jan Grill. A new giant cut-out photo- i graph of SC's famous warrior | | was placed at the entrance off Child's Way yesterday by the I sophomore class, announced its 1 president Hugh Helm. Tommy had been missing from that spot for the past three 1 years after a group of Stanford rooters swiped him as part of a football rivalry stunt. But Ihe class of '62 decided to bring him hack this year in better form wjth Helm organizing the project two weeks be- j for the beginning of the current semester. Jim Ilarmon, project chair-j man, made arrangements with 'the univer&ii v photographer, j John Towers, to t:d<e a photo-j graph of the statue and print a j picture 6 feet tall. A progress report on the new Faculty Club building will be presented tomorrow at the faculty organization's weekly noon luncheon meeting in the dining room of the Commons. Committee chairmen will detail the work being done by their groups and describe aspirations for the future of the $250.000 construction project. The Faculty Club building is scheduled for use next fall and is to be erected just east of Town and Gown residence hall. Exterior Approved At the last progress report made early this semester by Club President Dr. Russell H. Caldwell, it was announced that plans for the building exterior had been partially approved. The SC Board of Trustees had also accumulated funds for the external construction. Dr. Caldwell added. At the time of that report the interior plans had been fully a[>-proved, but it remained for the Faculty Club to raise the funds for the interior decoration as well as for the operation of the building. Drawings Displayed Last month the architect's drawings of the building were displayed at a club meeting. During the World Series games at the Coliseum the Faculty Club earned $3568 by opening the parking lot to the public. One phase of construction which still requires planning is air conditioning for the building. Dr. Caldwell announced at a re-cent meeting. Faculty members who wish to attend the luncheon - meeting should make reservations at Ext. 264 before noon today. This is the last chance to make permanent reservations for every i regular Wednesday meeting of the semester. representation claimed it would be “unworkable, impracticable ! and ridiculous.” However, the nine senators in 1 attendance agreed that the other new governmental concepts were needed and would probably work. Kay Steltenkamp. Harold Fong. Gene Brooks, Ron Good-game, Ken Unmacht and Larry Young argued against the “field of study” proposal. Receiving the brunt of the criticism of the measure was Gary Pubin. parliamentarian and chairman of the committee re-soonsible for the new constitution. Limit Authority Miss Steltenkamp chat ged that electing senators from various departments would limit their power and authority. Goodgame backed her up by adding that if a senator were elected from the English department, he would have no knowledge of most problems on campus and would he unable to discuss them intelligently. Pub'n declared that the field of study method would act as a basis for the new government and hoped that in the future senators from all departments would support one another. Sho lid Be Effective Dubin said, “any new form of government will have its difficulties in getting started, but in time this idea should be. effective. The basic motivation behind the new constitution is to get more efficient and academic representation. "If a senator from each department were elected and if he were to organize others in the same field of study, there would be better understanding of all the campus nrobleme on the senate floor.” Duhin added. Three Agree Agreeing with Dubin were senators-at-large Marianne Arrington and Martie Wuifesteig and Mortor Board President Barbara Myers. Fong disagreed with the statement that they would makegood senators. "If they would make good senators. why didn’t they run for the Senate? Because they didn't want to lie on the Senate. They are mainly interested in their own deoartment. not the university,” he said. Wake Actors HaveOpinions On Everything What do actors do? Almost anything. Drama students do even more. This is a commercial, of course —for “Finnegans Wake" which gets six drama department per-tormances in Stop Gap Theater beginning next Tuesday evening. Among the things actors or, more specifically, drama students do, are talk about their parts, rehearse feverishly, sleep in a coffin, get carried off stage on a Red Cross stretcher and talk on and on about their parts. Leading Performers Last Friday, we managed (somehow» to get a couple of the leading student performers in “Finnegans Wake" to talk about their parts. It was 6 p.m., and most of the cast had scattered after an afternoon of feverish rehearsal in the littlp theater near Harris Plaza. Tom Costello sat low on a chair in the drama office an i Nina Shaw perched on a desk. Sherry Inloes. knowing the da i-| gers of being quoted, was pic-I turesquely quiet. Costello is most everybodv in j "Finnegans Wake.” or. mot e I specifically, Humphrey Chimp-| den Earwicker. a tavernkeeper ; of Chapelizod. a suburb of Puh-I lin on the river Liffev. who is also Here Comes Everybodv. and 1 anything else Joyce wanted to ! call him along the way, the I eternal man. this man, that man, all men in one. Leftovers What's left over belongs pretty much to Miss Shaw, who is Anna Livia Plurabelle. H. C. E.'s 1 wife and counterpart, the eternal mother, the river of life, the river Anna Lilfev that runs through Publin, the conventionally endearing, romantic and poetic analectual pygmyhop. who is aopy. leDpy and playable. “I'm going to sleep in a coffin." Costello said. “Would you like to come to the funeral? “There’s a marvelous t eel ing in lying, looking straight up. seeing people looking down on you.” (Continued on Page -) Enforcement Officers Taught to Curb Crime Episcopalians Will Gather For Services Episcopal students and faculty members are invited to a special Holy Communion service, in preparation for Thanksgiving Pay. today at 12 noon in the Uttle Chapel of Silence on campus. The Rev. J. Ogden Hoffman. Jr., Episcopal Chaplain, will be the celebrant and preacher. This evening, from 6:15-8 p.m., i the Rev. Hoffman will hold a j discussion meeting of the SC > Canterbury Association at the Student Center, 854 W. 36th st. The topic of Ihe discussion will | he “Perils of Mixed Marriages,” j with special attention being given to inter-faith marriages. Chaplain Hoff ni a n believes “all marriages are really ‘mixed marriages, but .some are more j ‘mixed’ than others;.“ lie al.-o professes I hat the happiest marriages are those in which there is a common religious base, j By LEROY MEEK Twenty-one law enforcement officers, seeking more effective control over problems of juvenile delinquency, will graduate 1 from SC's Pelinquencv Control Institute next week with the hopes of using their new-found knowledge to curb teenage crime. The institute, a part of the School of Public Administration, offers a specialized training program designed to prepare law-enforcement officers, and those in related fields, to work more effectively with youth by the use of up-to-date methods of crime prevention. Modern Methods Robert Guthrie, director of the i institute, points out that one of the orimary objectives of the 12-week program is to teach students to administer a police juvenile program with modern administrative principles. Students also learn how to plan a correc- j tive program based upon the ! best welfare of the child, his family and the community. The program teaches how to investigate cases of delinquent behavior and how to understand i existing laws relating to juveniles and to keep pacp with new legislation. Since the establishment of the institute in 1946. 500 have at* i tended classes. ♦ >t the~e .»(R). 310 Inve Itpen Californian.*, while 2i | have I tee ii from foreign coun-I ries. This pres# nt class, which will j | graduate Pec. 3. consists of j three students from foreign I countries Netherlands. Puerto j Rico and the Philippines and eight from outside California. The students attend classes Monday through Thursday. Friday is devoted to field trips to ' various youth agencies and institutions in the Southern California area. In addition to regular instruc-| tors, classroom lectures arr giv-; en by executives from community agencies who specialize .n j psychiatry, psychology and social work. Reeular instructors are exper-j ienced law enforcement officers, ! SC professors, lawyers and correctional leaders, all of whom have had practical experience i i the field of delinquency control. Many Promotions Guthrie also points out th.it the majority of the students attending the classes are connected with juvenile departments in their regular police work and in many cases the graduates are eventually promoted to the head of this division. To attend Ihe Delinquency Control Institute, officers mu*t applv for admission and then hs accepted by the university. “We select the candidates not only on current basic requirement-. but v.e a Lo look for ill. ir potential to project and in di/e their knowledge atier they return to their department,” Guthrie explains.
