100 FAIL TO SHOW UP FOR BLOOD DONATIONS MORE ENTER CAMPAIGN WAITING IN VAIN for 100 Trojans who pledged blood to the Red Cross drive, but failed to report on schedule, are Red Cross Nurses Barbara Beckman, Aldine Adent, and Alice Wad-dill, left to right. Drive Chairman Cites SC Apathy as Cause Red Cross Unit Collects Only 165 Pints; AFROTC in Lead by Carolyn McCoy #One hundred Trojans who had promised a pint of blood today just didn’t show up at the Common’s basement and caused what Drive Chairman Sally McGrath termed “a great showing of student apathy for a school the size of SC.” “If it hadn’t been for the AFROTC, only 41 pints of blood would have been collected,” said Miss McGrath. AF ROTC members gave 124 of the 165 pints collected in the four hour period from 8:30 to 12:30. Activity in the Red Cross center was spasmodic until the AFROTC began to save the day. Nurses were drawing comparisons between SC and Stanford, where 1000 Jrojan Flyers Host at Meet ¡lots from SC will compete nst flyers from UCLA, Mt.

Five Contests Pilots will compote in five events. They are a 180-degree power-off side approach, 360-degree overhead approach spot landing, a wheel landing, bombing event, and a navigation course. In the latter event, pilots will have to estimate the time that it will take them to fly a certain triangular course, and then fly it and see how close they come to their estimation. The first event, the 180-degree landing is for student pilots only, while the bombing event is “strictly for laughs,” said Cutler. Members of the* SC team are George Asawa, John Birmingham, Chuck Brown, Cutler, Morris Desatofi, Don Gaede. John Her-ceg.

Many Quiet Moments Comments such as “The general campus isn’t backing it” echoed throughout the center during the many quiet moments. “In an industrial plant, if 250 workers signed up at least 90 per cent would show up,” one nurse said. “Stanford students even went off campus to get blood donors,” another commented. “Unless more studets keep their appointments, we will have to rely almost entirely on the rest of the AFROTC today and the NR OTC Thursday and Friday,” said Mrs. Rita Holman, Red Cross field representative for school and college activities. More Voters Figures tabulated show that fewer students gave blood than voted in last week’s special amendments election and that turnout was considered apathetic by most campus leaders, Miss McGrath commented. “If all the students on the Row alone would contribute, we would collect more than 2000 pints,” Miss McGrath said. “If one-half of the independent students would back the drive, this could be raised to 5000 pints,” she said. Too Anemic Excuses for not donating ranged from being too busy to being anemic. Nina Moehler, exchange student from Denmark, and three-time 1880 Daily lull Trojan Vol. XLIV 2 Los Angeles, Calif., Wednesday, Apr. 22, 1953 No. 116 232 TO TRY Exams Set Today for Service Clubs Two hundred and thirty-t w o hopefuls are signed up to take today’s qualifying examination for Knights and Squires, Harry Merrill, president of the senior men’s service organization, said yesterday. The Knight examination will be given in 129 FH and the Squire test in 335 FH. Both are at 4 p.m. “The number of applicants represents a slight increase over last year’s turnout,” Merrill said. One hundred and twenty-six students have petitioned to become members of the junior men’s service organization, while 106 have indicated they would like to be Knights. More Apply “Approximately 30 more students than last year have signed up for Squires, while the number of applicants for Knights,” said Merrill, “is roughly the same.” Merrill attributes the increase to a larger turnout of independents. “Approximately 10 per cent of the prospective Squires, and 15 per cent of the Knight candidates are independents,” he explained. In studying for the exams, students should pay particular interest to the history and traditions of SC, the administration, and leaders of different campus organizations, such as Blue Key, Knights, Alpha Phi Omega, and Amazons. Know Handbook He summed up the things the candidates should know by saying, “Just know the student handbook backwards and forwards.” A minimum mark of 80 per cent is required to pass the exam. If the number of candidates who successfully pass the exam is below our goal, said Merrill, then only that number will be accepted. Standards will not be lowered, he emphasized. Interview Board Those passing the examination will be notified through the Daily Trojan when and where to appear for their personal interviews with the five-man board. Before becoming initiated into Knights, those passing the selection requirements must pay a $25 initiation fee, which includes the banquet, activity book, cap, and dues, but does not include sweater. Squires have no initiation fee. FIVE TOPICS i mg wrhat she called “flimsy excuses.” will also be given. The AiRe-search Manufacturing company is the donor for this class. Planes for the event, with the exception of one which is owned by Rowley, will come from the Fallin Flying service. The Fal-lin company together with Standard Oi) are donating all of the gas. Judges, said Cutler, are from the Civil Aeronautics association, and are aviation safety agents. wiio have not signed up yet may take advantage of the large number of Red Cross facilities and sign up at the center, Miss McGrath said. Donations to be credited to the university’s drive will be taken today through Friday at the Red Cross blood center, 1200 South Vermont, for students wrho have classes conflicting with SC donation hours. \ «It! GEORGIA RODEE . . . piano recital Miss Rodee To Present Piano Recital A variety of classical numbers will be played by Georgia Rodee at a piano recital Sunday afternoon at 3 in 133 FH. The program will be the second Founders hall solo recital for Miss Rodee. Her first recital here was in November of 1950. She also has appeared in other recitals throughout Los Angeles and Pasadena and is scheduled to perform for the SC Faculty Wives club next month. Miss Rodee, a regular student at Los Angeles high school, is enrolled as a special student at SC under the tutelage of John Crown. Crown is a professor of music and head of the piano department. A student of the piano six and one-half years, Miss Rodee spent the past five years under the direction of Crown. She is the daughter of Dr. Carlton Rodee, professor of political science.

Errol Flynn stars as Capt. Geoffrey Vickers, leader of the brigade. More than 250 tickets have been sold by Alpha Delta Gamma, sponsors of the film classic which won the academy award for the best picture in 1936. John Anderson, treasurer and publicity chairman of Alpha Delta Sigma, said that profits from the showing are to be turned over to the fraternity’s fund to send a delegate to the bi-annual convention of Alpha Delta Sigma at Daytona Beach, Florida- He also added that the same film was recently shown for 80 cents admission in a Los Angeles theater where it was received with great popularity. Faculty to Hear Marriage Talk “Marriage Education” will be discussed today by Faculty Club luncheon speaker Dr. James A. Peterson, assistant professor of sociology and marriage counselor, at noon today in the Commons cafeteria. A description of the campus marriage counseling service, an explanation of the growth of marriage education in the U.S., and problems encountered by students preparing for marriage will be explained by Dr. Peterson. “Student interest prompted the initiation of the first marriage education course in North Carolina more than 25 years ago,” Dr. Peterson related. Tells History “Some years later a similar demand produced the same results on this campus,” he continued. “Since then the interest in marriage education has continued to grow. “The response to the program has been great and we feel that it is fulfilling its purpose,” the marriage counselor said. Dr. Peterson spent last week at Pomona college, which has no marriage education program. He gave five lectures while there and served as college marriage counselor for the week. Great interest in .marriage education was shown by Pomona students, he reported. Interest is not confined to college students alone, however, Dr. Peterson said. He has given more than 50 lectures throughout the community so far this year on the topic. Senate Hears Crew's Plea Tonight A proposal to induce the athletic department to give financial support to the crew will be one of the five subjects to be discussed at tonight’s Senate meeting. The crew problem will share discussion time with several reports covering apathy toward student government, the special election, the spring election, and the alumni award. George Gozales will introduce the crew problem. Pro arguments concerning the crew will be based upon the progress crew members have made without financial support but the impossibility of continuing in this way. The crew has been promised a $50,000 budget in a few years but now it is asking $3500 for operation expenses. Election» Report Jim Lucostic, elections commissioner, will submit his report of the special election last week in which voters defeated four constitutional amendments. The amendments would have allowed both men and women to run for ASSC president, vice-president, and secretary, and would have lowered the grade-point requirements for officers from 1.5 to 1.0. Lucostic will also report on preparations for the coming election April 29, 30, and May 1. Apathy by Bo Bo Jansen, senator-at-large, is scheduled to produce his widely publicized apathy report. Preliminary reports submitted on the survey have proved interesting and very humorous. Senators will have to reconsider legislation on Asa V. Call and his alumni award. At the last meeting, a resolution was passed to ask Call to remove the discriminatory clause in the qualifications for the aw§rd which states that the winner must be Caucasian. The resolution also asked Call to answer the Senate’s request. Call, however, is in Europe, so the Senate will have to decide another course of action. Independents Slate Meet The Independent Men’s Council’s first meeting for planning organizational work and semester activities, will be held today at 2:15 in 103 Founders, according to Murray Bring, Independent Men’s representative. This years appoitees so far are Seyom Brown, Jerry Baker, Bo Jansen, Carlos Martinez, Sam Goldstein, Ron Steingeiser, Don Wright, Cal Aderson, Joe Cerrill, Henry Elsbach, Jim Smith, Dick Merritt, Jerry Huhgey, Gordon Beeitman, Terry Gordon, Larry Shaw, Gordon Campbell, and Dean Pfundstein.
