Dr. Aerol Arnold, associate professor of Eng-d that writers must be willing to devote effort toward making their books itructurally if they wish to be truly successful. old, In a lecture on "Structure and Meaning in Fiction,” maintained that no real people exist in literature. They only seem real, he said, if the author is able to create a strong enough illusion. Unless a writer is willing to put in the intellectual work necessary to reshape his manuscript until this illusion exists, it cannot he artistically acceptable, Arnold said. I Proust and James Joyce are among the most successful modernists, Arnold said. "Both have written themselves through. Most writers would have been satisfied with the early drafts of their finest works. But both sought to reveal in the finished work the meaning they found it must have. “The shapes of 'Remembrance of Things Past’ and 'Portrait of OBBIE CARROU ,, politics stay ority Ban Politics Confirmed tlon has been taken Panhellenic Council :ds to a discussion requiring sororities to w from membership pus political organ-j. «líenle President Carroll said yester-e talk about Pan-prohibitin? sororities filiating with political Ira all rumor and has out of proportion.'1 *r yesterday's council ;he said “there is no M tar as policy, and 'se can belong to cam-Titical organizations if desire." uiheilenic Council pro-ch a move, each house Ibe required to pass it,” ’troll said.

"Writers who live from age to age are those from whom other writers learn,” lie said. “Since most people read what's just been published, the writer who produces solely for the public can't hope to live,” he said. The novelist has a great responsibility to explore his main theme and mood completely, according to Arnold. He must direct his reader's attention to them at all times and control their emotional reactions. But he must never interfere. No Interruptions “An author misuses the novel form when he diverts attention from the character and scene,” Arnold said. “He must create an undisturbed illusion of great, dramatic intensity. When he interrupts with generalizations of | his own, he leads his readers away from the story.” Arnold cited F. Scott Fitzgerald's “The Rich Boy" as a poorly constructed novel. “Both the title and the foreward of the book make it clear that a rich boy is different from you and me,” Arnold said-"But after reading the book it becomes evident that the scenes described and the story told do not correspond with the original idea,” he said. a Fitzgerald creates problems which he answers only superficially or not at all. Arnold feels As a result, the story is not believeable and fails. Personal Touch Required for Mr.Trojanality SC men had better start primping and dieting—that Is, if they want a chance to be “Mr. Trojanality" for 1956. The personality contest, which is sponsored yearly by the Trojan Chest, is held to determine the SC man with the besf looks and personality.- Each women's dormitory and sorority will sponsor a candidate in the contest, which starts Mar. 19 and Vuns for a week. The winning entrant and his sponsoring group will reosive prizes and gifts from local merchants. Individuals may enter the contest without a sponsor if they contact chairman Barbara jlysong at RI. 8-9981 by Friday. The winner of the contest will be the man with the most votes to his credit. Each vote will cost 25 cents and may b? registered next week at the "Mr. Trojanality” booth in front of the Student Union. Trojan Chest Is SC's nonprofit charity organizltion which gives yearly donations to the YWCA, Troy Camp, and the Living War Memorial. Chairman of the "Mr. Trojanality” committee is Barbara Hy-song. Other officers are Homer K e r n, vice-chairman; Carol Breitkreutz, secretary; and Roberta Edmiston, public relations. Last year's winner and run* 1 ner-up, re s p ec t i vs 1 y, were Mickey Artenian, Phi Psi. and Jerry McMahon, Phi Sig. The graphic arts of movie I and automobile sales promotion may soon be used to “sell”, the student on his studies. Animated microbes, mobiles of chemical elements, and caricatures of electrons and neutrons will take over Founders Hall on Friday when movie artist Saul Bass discusses "Visual Communication of Ideas.’ The talk is sponsored by Sigma Xi, national science honorary fraternity, to promote the use of visual aids In science classes. Movl? W ork As an advertising artist, Bass did all of the promotional art for “Mari'With a Golden Arm," "Marty,” “The Seven Year Itch,” and “Carmen Jones." Bass, who won five gold medals at the last advertisine show at. the county Museum, will discuss visual aids in communication between scientists, between scientist and student, and between scientist and the lawman. He got the idea of communicating scientific ideas through art from his wife who is an SC graduate student in chemistry. Need Stressed Dr. Paul Saltman, Sigma XI program director, explained the need for more visual aids. “Science should be made more interesting,” said Saltman. "Scientific meetings and classes are often the most boring, deadly, non-communicative sessions imaginable. But science and all courses can be made exciting by presenting ideas visually,” he said He added that the coming field in education is in the use of visual aids. ___________________ UCLA Sends Partial Payment For Grid Gaine Paint Prank By a score of 17-7 the Trojan football team lost to the Bruins Nov. 20. — revenge will have to wait until next year. At half time during the crosstown battle, Trojan rooters and band members fell to a Bruin onslaught of (lumped paint — the score was settled today. In a letter to Dean of Students Bernard I.. HyinU, UCLA has sent restitution nf $.158.SO to rover damages. The check paid $150.80 for damages in clothing worn b.v members of Alpha Phi Omega, men’s service honorary. It also paid for half of the damages done lo five band uniforms. The lotal bill for the five uniforms came to $415. The Bruins sent S207.50. Bryon Atkinson, assistant dean at UCLA, said the sum represents “considerable discussion by the UCLA Board of Control a.nd Is an equitable solution.” Atkinson explained that the reason for the partial compensation Is that "band uniforms can be. paid for by universities out of their nonmukual game expense budgets." Dean Hylnk responded to the letter by stating SC’s appréciation for the payment by the Assioriated Students at the University of California at Los Angeles. “With, uncertainly as tn the Identity of Ihe culprit, I his payment represents a fine spirit of fair play," wrote Hyink. Dean Hylnk said that it was a fine gesture from the Bruins because “we could not force them to pay since, we don’t know for sure who threw the paint."

The ASSC senators will also consider whether the posts of ASSC vice-president, secretary, and University Recreation Association chairman are to be restricted to a particular sex. Jeff England, AMS secretary-treasurer, will introduce an amendment for the ASSC bylaw* which would not restrict the post of URA chairman to males; and Bob Gerst, AMS president, will ask the senators to amend the ASSC constitution to delete the word “female" from the qualifications for ASSC vice-president and secretary. Amendments Postponed These amendments were introduced at the last Senate meeting,’ Feb. 29, but had to be postponed two weeks before they could be debated. Also on tonight's agenda are reports from various committee chairmen and other constitutional amendments.
