SC Dramatists Neutra Tells Ideas Will Present On Library Design Skin of Teeth should be an ob-for ideas, not a City Coroner to Prove Contention That Corpses Can Communicate Dr. Curphey Plans TV Appearance, Explanation Sunday By DAN EIJOPOULIS There's a man walking around Los Angeles, believe it or not. who specializes in making dead people talk. Just to prove his point he will appear on KABC-TV Channel 7 Sunday at 6:30, to show h«.w it's done. He is Dr. Theodore Curphey, clinical professor of pathology at SC and Los Angeles County Coroner. Dr. Curphey will b? the featured guest on a new 10 program I television series “Discovery.” His j Sunday program is entitled I “Dead Men Do Talk.” The weekly program will fea- j ture faculty members from eight j southland universities and colleges discussing a variety of j subjects. Making dead people talk j might seem fantastic to the lay- [ men but to Dr. Curphey it's all in a days work. Unlike a police detective, he j does all his work in a modern J laboratory. His tools are the latest scientific equipment and \ when the corpse talks it is j through either a high powered < microscope, a spectograph, epi- | condenser or any of the many other science wonders at his dis- I posal. Curphey was recently appoint-1 ed coroner of the county of Los Angeles. He is the first medical man to hold the post of coroner j •ince a county amendment was passed making that qualification mandatory. He was born and educated in Canada. In 1921 he received his I MD. from Queensland University, and then went to Hamilton. Canada to intern at St. Joseph's Hospital. Curphey has authored over 26 scientific papers published in leading medical journals such as the New York Journal of Medicine, American Journal of Pathology and the New' England Journal of Medicine. He has held the office of president in the American Society of Clinical Pathology and the Society of Medical Juris Prudence. “Ultimately bewitched, befuddled sfnd becalmed, they are the ! stuff of which heroes are made— heroes and buffoons. They have survived a thousand calamities by ‘the skin of their teeth’.” This three-time Pulitzer Prize winner, “Skin of Our Teeth." will open May 7 and run through to May 11 in Bovard Auditorium at 8:30 p.m. John E. Blankenchip. director and designer of the comedy, describes it as “a satirical story of the indestructability of Man.” Seen in the principal rifles will be Gretchen Kanne, who appeared this semester in “Cradle Song;’ Paul Comi, Carol Daniels and Kathy Coombs. General admission is one dollar. Activity card holders will be admitted free. “The library j stetrical ward ! mausoleum.” So said Richard J. Neutra, internationally-known architect, city planner, and author, yesterday at the opening session of the School of Library Science's Institute on Public Library Architecture. “Too often in the past, static ALAS POOR YORICK—Checking over evidence of skull fracture is LA County Coroner Dr. Theodore Curphey, right, and KABC-TV Program Director Peter Robinson.

Brooks, Assistant Registrar Applications for membership in Alpha Sigma Lambda, the national evening college honorary society, will be accepted until Wednesday noon, May 1, R. H. Mathers, Assistant Dean of University College (evening school) announced yesterday. Applications should be in the form of a typed letter stating name, permanent home address and current class standing (freshman, sophomore, junior, etc.) and should be sent to Dr. Mathers, University College, University Park, Los Angeles 7. Alpha Sigma Lambda is to evening colleges across the country what Phi Beta Kappa is to daytime students. As such, it is a national honorary scholastic fraternity, membership in which is limited to outstanding collegc i students. perpetuity has distinguished the library buildings,” he said. “The design of libraries should not result in architecture commemorating the dead,” Neutra said. “At the risk of appearing to be against dignity, I would say that the library shouldn’t be a place where only low, low-voiced conv ersation and hampered vitality prevail.” Speaking on the “Living Library,” Neutra said that the ideal library of the future would feature television coverage of current events, news teletypes, stock market ticker tapes, Hi-Fi rooms for music and poetry, film rooms, regular showings of kine-scoped instructions on how to use the library, outdoor reading rooms and informal lounges. “We need informal lounges because after all, Socrates ‘buttonholed’ people in the Agora, not in a secluded, solemn hall,” he said. ‘“The idea that people can’t talk in a library is ridiculous, even inhuman. That’s why we need seminar and conference rooms,” he said. Provision for solitary curiosity is also important, he pointed out. “While the library should not be a temple, neither should it be a warehouse,” he explained. “We must tailor the space for different readers, rather than have standardization. This is what makes our job interesting.” “The architect must design for the long range period, with slow obsolescence rate,” Neutra said. The architect must see the library a.s part, even the center, of the community in which we live, he explained. “We must create an environment, taking on the different job of replacing natural Surroundings by artifacts.” he said. “We have to realize that many fac- ; tors influence the reader’s abili-1 ty to absorb wrhat he reads.” “Memory retention is more j than an intellectual process. The j emotions are involved and thus i the intensity of the retention is the test of our design ability,” he said. Lighting, colors, fur- ; nishings, odors, air conditioning —all affect the reader. half the regular price of tickets to guests from SC . From 3:15 to 11 tonight Trojans students, faculty members, administrators and friends are invited to share the world-famed attractions at Disneyland by purchasing a special S3 ticket from any freshman council member or at the booth in front of the Student Union. , This ticket book is valued at $5.50 and will entitle purchasers admission to Disneyland, choice of ten rides, free exhibits, access to restaurants and snack bars, admission to a Street Dance for SC guests only and a special bonus of two 50 cent rides. « Frosh Project Troy Disneyland Daze is an all-university outing planned by the Freshman class as a casual yet significant and spirited event that may include everyone.

It will being at 9 p.m. and end at 11 p.m. even New System May Choose Top Seniors Recipients of this year's AMS ’’outstanding senior" awards may or may not receive the fruits of a new selection proposal presented at a recent AMS Cabinet meeting. The heart of the new- system is in the suggestion that a seven-man committee be selected at large from among the community’s outstanding citizens. This committee would make the final decision of selecting a minimum list of five students to a maximum of ten from a list of 15 presented them by a preliminary SC committee of eight. Decision Controversy It is around the point of final decision that the controversy revolves. With the svstem now in effect four members of the faculty and four male students make the choice using as standards of recognition scholarship, leadership, athletic achievement, community service and other activities. Bob Meads, AMS president, points out- that the award as-though the park will be closed sembly is scheduled for Mav _3 to regular visitors at 10 p.m. Disneyland will provide a professional band and entertainment. Before the dance, guests may take in all the attractions and sights of the picturesque park including the rides, exhibits, amusements and restaurants in each of the “lands.” Disneyland is divided into Fantasvland. Frontierland, Tomorrowiand. Ad-ventureland and Main Street. Official Day Disneyland officials will proclaim today as Troy Disneyland Daz-e, fly a welcoming banner across the entrance to the park, and provide complete SC decorations. Guests are invited to come casually and informally in Bermuda shorts and sport clothes, and either stag or in couples. Disneyland is located at 1313 Harbor Blvd. in Anaheim. Spokesmen for the freshman class urge guests to take the Harbor Freeway to downtown interchange. Directions Told Then use the “Cloverleaf Interchange” to get on the Santa Ana Freew’ay and continue to Harbor Blvd. and Disneyland. Signs indicating the proper course will be visible along the freeway route. Purchasers may be reminded that in case they are unable to attend Troy’s special day, the ticket books given to SC at a special rate will be honored at any time during 1957. The ticket booth in front of the Student Union will be open until 3 p.m. today to assure Trojans the opportunity of the bargain price i.p to the last minute. and that little time remains for action on the proposal. A special cabinet meeting will be held within the next two weeks, when, he says, the matter will be decided “finally and irrevocably.” Suggested Improvements In connection with the giving out of the awards, AMS Vice President Dennis Fagerhult announced that his six-man committee. which vv a s formed to suggest improvements for the organization, has recommended a combined AMS-AWS awards assembly. His committee has also proposed other changes among which are the following: 1) A constitutional change taking voting power from AMS cabinet members if they miss three meetings unexcused. Joint Meetings 2) A joint meeting with the AWS cabinet. 3) A combined AMS-Yell Leader sponsored rally in the fall. 4) Film shows of football games to be given not only during the football season as done now, but during the Spring semester. 5) Functioning of the Quarterback Club of AMS throughout the year showing such films of interest as the recent one on the Olympic Games. New Society 6) A letterman’s society which w'ould be open to all men who have won a varsity letter in “a recognized sport” during their stay at SC. The AMS would sponsor only its formation and the new organization would not be under its control.
