H-Bomb May Fizzle WASHINGTON, Oct. 29—Chairman Gordon Dean of the Atomic Energy commission indicated today that U. S. scientists still don’t know for sure whether they can make a workable hydrogen bomb. Otto Klemperer, world-famous conductor, directed an all-Bach concert commemorating the 200th anniversary of the death of the great composer, yesterday in Bovard auditorium. Klemperer, former conductor of the Los Angeles Philharmonic orchestra. stopped in Los Angeles only long enough to conduct the Bovard program before leaving for a concert tour of Canada. He led a chamber orchestra composed of distinguished Southern California musicians in the Brandenburg Concertos Nos. 1. 3. and 5. and the Sute No. 2 in B Minor for flute and strings. Arthur Gleghorn. one of the foremost flutists of England, was the soloist in the B minor suite. M. Alice Ehlers, professor of music at SC and one of the outstanding interpreters of Bach in the U.S., played the- harpsichord solo in the concerto No. 5 in D Major for flute, violin, harpsichord, and strings. Assisting soloists were Gieghom and Adolf Koldofsky. Results Here To Influence Future Tests Four thousand students are going through a screening process for possible diabetes in a survey which, if successful, may be used as a model in cities throughout the state, Dr. Paul O. Greeley, director of the Student Health service,; reported Friday. Each new student entering SC1 is given special blood tests for diabetes. The student is then requested to retrun for further examinations. Records will be kept all the time the student is at SC. Mass Survey If the diabetes examination of every student during his entrance physical check proves feasible, Dr. Greeley said, the mass survey system will probably get a trial run in California oities, on the same basis that the chest X-ray work is now being carried on. SC is the first university in the nation to hold such a survey involving every new student, according to Dr. Greeley. The examinations are made possible through the cooperation and help of the California Department, of Public Health. Blood Sampled Research scientists do not expect to find much trace of diabetes among men and women of college age. Of the 4000 students checked so far, only 100 have needed re-checking. Dr. Greeley said the survey is being carried on only to determine the value of the method when performed on a large group of people as might be at random in a city. The survey calls for each student to abstain from any drink or food from midnight until a certain hour the next day. Then he is given a large glass of heavily-sug-ared lemonade and told to return in exactly two hours. A sample of his blood is then taken and checked for diabetes symptoms. A hew laboratory machine called the clini-tron makes it possible to examine blood samples from 120 persons per hour. Leading Authority The survey here is being watched by Dr. Elliott P. Joslin of Boston, a leading authority on diabetes; Dr. Hugh L. Wilkerson, chief of the diabetes branch of the U.S. Public Health service in Washington, D C. and Dr. B. K. Milmore. diabetes consultant, bureau of disease control. State of California Department of Public Health. The reason for the importance of the survey is that a million Americans have diabetes, and another million suffer from it without knowing that they have the disease. Official Notice RED CROSS bloodmobile will be on campus Nov. 8 and will collect blood donations at the social hall. Town and Gown. Registration tables in front of the Student Union are daily enrolling donors from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Linda Raley, 9, is the patient who is talking to Gene Royer, blood campaign chairman, and Nancy Phelps, co-chairman. ★ Save A Life Somewhere in your life is a child who means very much to you. He may be your little brother, a nephew, or perhaps your son. If his life or health were in danger, you would undoubtedly move heaven and earth to help him in any way you could. There is an easy way to do it. You can join the SC Blood bank by donating a pint of blood through the Red Cross. You can see what is done with some of this blood by going to the Children’s hospital on Vermont avenue. When you arrive look for 7-year-old Johnny Lee. He is the hospital’s most frequent visitor. Johnny is a victim of hemophilia—the tendency to prolonged bleeding even from the merest scratch. Dozens of times Johnny could have bled to death but thanks to Red Cross-collected blood, Johnny still lives. Visit also the ward where several little girls are battling one of childhood’s most relentless enemies, rheumatic fever. Before you leave, inquire about operations performed on accident cases in the hospital’s six operating rooms. Without the aid of Red Cross-collected blood, which the hospital uses at the rate of approximately 8000 pints per month, a large percentage of these operations would be unsuccessful. Maybe you have never thought of yourself as a hero, but saving a life would certainly come under the heading of heroism. Remember, too, that the life you save with a pint of your blood may be the life of that child who means so much to you. —R.F. Lucostic, Decker Vie In Run-off Jim Sublett Elected Vice-President in Engineer's Write-in The polls will open at 11 a.m. today for the run-off election of top freshman officers. No candidate received a majority of votes for either office in the balloting last week, said Paul Parrish, elections commissioner. Jim Sublett has been elected vice-president of the School of Engineering. The election has been approved by the Election commission and is official. Parrish said. Bob Decker and Jim Lucostic are the freshman candidates for president on the new ballot that will be presented to the voters today. Bo Janjen and Pattie Ann Schlarb will contest the vice-pres-idency. No Majority Results of last week s voting show that Decker received 113 votes to Lucostic’s 65, and Pattie Schlarb received 120 votes to Jansen's 72. A candidate must receive 50.1 per cent of all the votes cast for that office in order to be elected, Parrish said. The polls will be located in the same place that they were for last week's elections, in front of the University library on the northwest walk. They will be open today and tomorrow from 11 am. to 3 p.m. If it rains, the polls will be moved to the social hall of EVK, Farrish added. “We hope to have the same cooperation of the students for the run-off election as was shown in the initial election," he said. In the School of Engineering election for vice-president, Sublett was elected with 36 write-in votes. The new vice-president met the requirements of the engineering constitution which states that a senior must have a 1.5 grade average for the preceding semester to be eligible. A total of 61 write-in ballots were cast in the engineering election. Picnic, Songfest Click Inside ★ ★ ★ ★ Coeds to Discuss Goal The University and the ASSC Senate have arranged for Special student trains to the Stanford game in Palo Alto, Saturday, Nov. 4. The trains will leave Los Angeles on Friday evening. Friday, Nov. 3, will be observed as a regular school day. The university will not officially excuse students for absence from classes on that day. Bernard L. Hyink, Dean of Students The student lounge became the “Trojan Barber Shop” Friday afternoon when a rou.s_ ing 1890’s songfest and picnic, sponsored by AMS-AWS, was held there. Master-of-ceremonies Buck Sherlock introduced the 10 finalises who were selected from some 30 barber shop quartet competitors. They sang such songs as “Hello, My Coney Island Babe,” “Paper Doll,” and “Dear Old Girl, to an audience of more than 500. The picnic was originally scheduled to take place in the area south of the Student Union, but afternoon showers necessitated the change to the student lounge. Delta Gammas rendition of “You Tell Me Your Dream.” was judged best of the competing sororities and the quartet was presented with a cup by AWS president Nicki Has-tert. ^ Theta Chi, adorned with moustaches, bow-ties, and white bartenders’ aprons was selected the best male group and was awarded a trophy from AMS president Louis Ramirez. The King and Queen of Smiles were announced during the festivities Pepita Coto, Alpha Phi from Mexico City and a senior in international relations is the winning coed. She was given a $10 gift certificate from Alpha Phi Omega president Lowell Lorbeer. Phrateres representative Joyce Lewis announced Tom McNair, senior in advertising from Pasadena, is King of Smiles. McNair was not present to receive the gift certificate that Miss I^ewis had for him. Pictures of the Smile “royalty” will be in tomorrow’s DT. Other barber shop finalists who sang at the picnic were Pi Kappa Alpha, Phi Kappa Psi, Phi Delta Theta, Sigma Chi, Alpha Omicron Pi, Kappa Kappa Gamma, Gamma Phi Beta, and Alpha Delta Pi. “Women in Modern Society” — their goals, training for those goals, and potential problems — is the subject of the panel for the first Conver-sation tea, to be held tomorrow, 3 p.m., in the Town and Gown residence hall. The teas are the idea of Dr. Frank C. Baxter, professor of English. As they are now set up under the new LAS program for women, they do not give academic credit, but the^have received support of Dr. Albert S. Raubenheim-er, educational vice-president, and Dean Tracy Strevey of L.A.S. Tomorrow’s topic will encompass all of the future themes, according to Bingo Piver, chairman of the ’ teas. Questions which the five-women panel will discuss are: Should a woman have a career of her own, to what degree can a woman live her own life, should a woman have opportunities equal to those of a man, and the problems of spinsterhood. Members of the panel will include Mrs. Earl Cranston, wife of the dean of religion and a former missionary; Mrs. Grant B. Cooper, practicing attorney and mother of several children; June Louin Tapp, graduate student; and Jane Aven Hall aSia Dori Bonham, undergraduates. Miss Piver will act as moderator. Dr. Baxter thought that the informal gatherings would help university women to decide what they wanted from their education. His idea was included in the new curricula for women by Drs. Rauben-heimer and Strevey. The curricula also includes Education for Marriage, Family Health, Planning the Home. Foods and Uu-trition, and Law for Everyday Living. Though the conversation teas are part of the women’s program, men axe invited. Inman to Give Israel Report “Report from Jerusalem” will be the topic of a talk by Dr. Samuel G. Inman, world traveler and student of international affairs, at the university chapel service, FH 133, at 11 tomorrow morning. Dr. Inman recently served on a committee to Palestine under the auspices of the American Christian Palestine committee to leam the opinion of on-the-spot religious DR. SAMUEL G. INMAN . . . speaks tomorrow leaders concerning the recent UN decision to politically internationalize Jerusalem. The committee found that practically all the religious authorities thought the decision was inadvisable. Dr. Inman will attend the Assembly of the United Nations to oficially report on the findings and will follow this by a cross-country lecture tour. The committee that sponsored his trip to Palestine will also sponsor this tour in the interest of exposing some of the problems of t h e new Israeli government. Dr. William Lindsay Young, executive director of the Southern California region of the National Conference of Christians and Jews, will introduce the speaker.
