With Ihis true inimitable drippings which can only mean the 1953 VULTURE! Astute followers of contemporary American literature grip their seats in anticipation as the greatest literary event of the year hits campus at crack of dawn tomorrow. Sigma Delta Chi, honorary journalism fraternity, will be hawking their annual abortion, the “VULCHURE.” Dozens of exposes are promises in this fearless tabloid. The shrouds of mystery which have for many semesters hidden the true identity of ROCKI RHODES will be removed. Sassity gals all along the Row were left quivering with I the announcement that a picture of ROCKI had finally been | snapped. But that is only the beginning, SDXers report scandals I galore—all the lurid truth of campus life will drip forth I from the Vulture’s leaky beak. Who is the real campus queen? Why did Cravath squeel on his old pals at Troy? Has Kinsey told all he knows about women? Look up! Even now VULCH’S ominous shadow looms lover Troyville. But never fear, he won’t drop anything until tomorrow morning. (Only 15 cents). Professor Explains Excise Tax Raise “If a federal excise tax upon manufactured items is levied by the government when the income taxes are cut in January, it will not mean a great change in tax policy,” said SC economics department head. Dr. Clyde W. Phelps, yesterday. He pointed out that people in the United States are paying over BIO billion annually in federal lies taxes now, and that if this ' method of taxation, which would new form of taxation is installed, j be a decided cut from the current It is certain that present high j excise tax of 20 per cent on many federal sales taxes on certain ' items. The tax on some of these (items will be reduced. This would ! items would be reduced and oth- îclude the 20 per cent tax on ers would be dropped completely. toiletries, luggage, and jewelry iat is now in effect. New Tax “If the new tax is introduced, “All in all, however, the total income from federal sales taxes would be just about the same as the income now, except that it anufacturers of certain items would be covered in the purchase *iH P3* an excise tax to the fed- ral government,’’ Dr. Phelps lid. There will be two probable lternatives if the government looses to adopt this form of tax- “The first alternative would be Prime Minister Says Japan Loyal Friend Japan is a loyal friend and a strong ally of the US, Dr. Hitoshi A6hida, former Prime Minister of Japan, declared Friday at a dinner in the Commons. “One of the most important tasks of the United States government is to see that the other free nations will not suffer because of any impatient action of this country,” Ashida said in his speech, “Japan Today.” He said that unrest in Japan, sponsored whenever possible by Communists, is due partly to the aftermath of the seven-year American occupation. Long-Range Factors “Problems of re-armament, self-defense, and the stationing of American Security forces in Ja- ] pan are long-range factors in the relationships between the two countries,” Dr. Ashida added. He said the problems of anti-Americanism are not as serious as some make out, although he does admit they exist “It will require,” Dr. Ashida said, “a better enlightened public relations program by both Japan and the United States.” The talk was sponsored by the School of International Relations and was attended by faculty and students as W'ell as prominent officials. Chancellor Rufus B. von Klein-Smid introduced Dr. Ashida, who was personally invited to the campus by Dr. Rodger Swearingen, assistant professor of international relations, who made a study this past summer in Japan on a Ford Foundation grant. Charity Drive For Faculty, Employees On The annual University Community Chest drive got underway yesterday and Dean John Cooke of Summer Session and Campus Chairman for the chest drive, said he hopses for a 100 percent contribution from faculty and employees. The Community Chest drive for students will be held in the Spring. Dean Cooke said that more than 80 percent of all monies collected is given to various child benefit organizations. He said a committee of sixty teachers, named by the deans of the various schools, will make personal contacts to solicit money from the faculty members and employees. The drive ends November 6. Pictures of SC-Cal Tilt To be Shown Quarterback Club will show movies of the SC-Cal game which took place last Saturday at Berkeley in 133 FH tomorrow at noon said Harvey Palash, president. Line Coach Mel Hein, who W'as eight times an All-Pro selection, will narrate. Coach Hein is in his third season as coach of SC’s centers and tackles. Coach Hein was Washington State’s All-American choice in 1930. He played pro football for the New York Giants. He was line coach of the Los Angeles Dons, New York Yankees, and Los Angeles Rams. The event is being sponsored by the Associated Men Students. There will be a discussion and questions concerning the film will be answ-ered. The movie will be open to everyone, free of charge, said Ernie Schag, AMS president. “Nobody will be disappointed because SC really sparked at Cal,” said Palash. Ciendening to Ask for Senate Confirmations ASSC President Warren Ciendening will ask Senate approval of his appointments to chairmanship of the Student Forum and Student Public Relations committees when the ASSC Senators meet tomorrow night at 7 in 418 SU. The Student Public Relations committee was created by the Senate earlier this month to furnish Los Angeles area news outlets with information on student activities. The Student Forum Committee’s purpose is to initiate and co-ordinate student forum programs and stimulate student interest in these forums. New Voting Senator Ciendening has completed the interviewing of chairman candidates and will announce his selections at the meeting. Seating of George Hartman, president of the School of Public Administration as a voting senator is expected tomorrow night. The ASSC Constitution provides that any undergraduate school may petition the Senate for a voting seat. If the petitioning school has an enrollment larger than the smallest student body presently represented by a voting senator, the Senate must recognize the president as a voting Senator. A Seat for Chimes Latest enrollment figures show the School of Public Administration has 157 students while the School of International Relations (now holding a voting seat) has only 89. This makes Senate approval to the seating of Hartman only a technicality. A non-voting seat for the president of Chimes wall be requested by the junior women’s service organization. A two-thirds vote of the Senate is required to approve the non-voting seat for Chimes President Joan Price. HOMECOMING ADS TO DECORATE CARS Bumper Signs Now On Sale At SU Booth ONE THIN DIME—ASSC president Warren Ciendening digs for 10-cent piece to purchase Homecoming bumper poster from Marvin Katz, one of the Squires who began selling the cardinal and gold tabs yesterday. It's a new gimmick for publicity. Bobette Sets Social Meeting For Tomorrow Looking forward to a “big job” and “a lot of hard work,” ASSC Vice President Bobette Bentley has scheduled an ASSC Social Committee meeting for tomorrow noon in 328 SU. Miss Bentley made it clear that “any suggestions that members of the student body have concerning social events are welcome.” She further urged students to feel free to “come in and discuss your ideas with me or any other member of the Social Committee.” Committee chairmen for the 1953-54 school year are Minnie Brown, Charles Patrick Lund, Bud Sealts, Marguerite Cooper, Barbara Goode, Virginia Lee, Jim McGregor, Carol Brown, Dave Cash-ion, and Ken Niles. “With this fine group,” said Miss Bentley, “I’m sure that the social activities of SC will be the very finest quality. I feel that this committee will expand the social functions and improve the events open to all-university attendance. price ol various items and the tax would be payed directly to the government by the manufacturer,” Dr. Phelps said.

He studied at Harvard; Hei-delburg, Vienna; and Paris, France. Superior Court Judge to Speak At Law School Don’t leave that key in your unlocked car on the street! That warning will be repeated Thursday at 8 p.m. by Superior Judge Clarence B. Run-kle, who will speak on “Your Daily Legal Problems—Accidents” at the School of Law auditorium. Judge Runkle has said that you are not only violating the law by leaving your key in your car, but you are liable for any damages and injuries which the car in the hands of another driver might cause.
