Colonel Sawyer is interviewed by DT reporter Karen Jacobs.

The program will feature a film “Know Your Library” which was produced by Alice Lolirer, assistant professor of Library Science, University of Illinois. The film concerns a young girl in high school who finds the library a bewildering and fearsome place until she learns how to use It properly. Library personnel participating In this program are: Warren Heyer, student chairman-producer; Billie .Mae Poison and Alson Clark, narrator*; and Fernando Penalosa, assistant professor of Library Science. Knox To Speak OnMarineEcologv Dr. George Knox, professor of [contact the Instituted I zooloKV at Canterbury Univer-llf,«t, New York 21, New j *ily' New Zealand, will be the I guest speaker at the Biology Club today in the Graduate Lounge, Town and Gown at 3:30 p.m. Dr. Knox will speak on Marine Ecology of New Zealand Shores. Refreshments will be served at the meeting. '_________________ b Guide (for Sale 350 miles south of Cairo. Akhnaton introduced the worship of one god into the polytheistic Egyptian culture. The 4',¿-inch head is carved from shale. Its headdress is decorated with circles representing the disk of the sun, which was the object of Akhnaton's new religion. Tell« History The 73-year-old Saywer.'who attended SC during the. 1901-1902 school year, plans to will the head to the department of Egyptology. After Akhnaton's rule, King Tut came into power and abolished his religion and many of his works. "That probably accounts for the head being found in a field with no body,” Colonel Sawyer said. The face is burned on the right side- Akhnaton's mother is reported to have bound his head to a board which, according to Colonel Sawyer, accounts for the flatness at the back of the head. States Background Colonel Sawyer did not disclose the price of the relic, but he indicated it was well below the head's worth. Akhnaton is credited by some students of religion with affecting Moses' concept of one God. One of the phnroah’s letters is also believed to have influenced David in writing Psalm 104. Colonel Sawyer publishes "Western Trucking,'’ a trade paper tor the trucking Industry of the western states, and "Tile,” the tile industry’s nationwide magazine. He also returned from Egypt with a base relief of the profile of another pharoah from a tomb in the Valley of the Kings, where many pharoahs were entombed. Look at Short Story Stylist Closes Series A short story pointing up Katherine Mansfield's ability to deflate phony socialites and artsy-craftsy hangers-on was heard in the semester's final Noon Reading yesterday. Dr. William Davenport, head of the English department, read "Bliss,” a story which shows Miss Mansfield’s perceptive insight and ability to handle satirical dialogue. Miss Mansfield's technique of carefully constructing' a mood and then demolishing it in one fell swoop made her a master of the modern short story technique, Dr. Davenport said. He mentioned two of her works as examples of this style. "In her 'A Cup of Tea' she tells | of a heroine who is entirely philanthropic until her husband begins to show interest in the girl she is helping” Dr. Davenport said. "Marriage a la Mode” shows how a perfectly good marriage is blown to smithereens by a group of silty people who make the heroine change her clothes, manners, ad even her laugh,” he said. “Bliss” concerns the confusion of a young wife and mother as she feels her first real longings of passion. Her desires are personified by a blossoming tree in her garden. As her mood grows the story's pace quickens until her desires are finally squelched. Fire Runs Wild at Pomona High By I'nlted Pres» Fire yesterday destrojed the central unit of Pomona High School after blazing out of control for thres hours while dozens of fire companies battled the flames. Nearly 1500 students and teachers marched out of the building when the fire alarm sounded. The flames started in a girls' rest ropm on an upper floor while classes still were in session. The roof over the school au-citorium in the central section collapsed and flames swept from the basement through the second Iloor. Tl>3 west wing of the building was unharmed and about half of the ea6t wing was saved. All available fire fighting equipment in the area responded to the a ¡arm, some engine companies coming from San Bernardino County and from all nearby cities. The structure was built In 1924 at a cost of $500,000 but only last April voters passed a bond Issue to spend $2,400,000 for a new high school. School officials said classes would be suspended for several days while a survey is made of the damage and plans compl?te for emergency housing of students until new facilities can be obtained on a temporary basis pending construction of the new high school.
