NEYMAN Acting I)can of Students Photo Winner To Get Trip Campus lensmen, here’s your opportunity to spend a week in New York City — expenses paid.

The photographer submitting the prize-winning portfolio will receive a set of Encyclopaedia Britannica and an expense-paid week in New York as the guest of Life Magazine.

Mar. 11— Smog can cause two and one-half times as many lung cancers in mice breathing polluted air as compared with other mice living in washed air in a laboratory. Dr. Paul Kotin. SC pathologist, said MondrV at Yale University.. The mice breathing clean air developed lung tumors it a normal rate. A third colony of mice ex- f>osed to day-to-day Los Ange-ps air suffered one and one-half times more lung cancers than those in the washed air. A five-year research program on the etfect of air pollution on lung cancer at the SC School of Medicine has shown that highly complex mixtures of irritants in the atmosphere produce lung cancers in experimental animals. Dr. Kotin said in an invited lecture at the Yale Medical School. Apply to Man "By and large, it is also unlikely that a single agent produces lung cancer in man." Dr. Kotin said. “Thus we feel that our laboratory- experimental data are applicable to man to a remarkable degree. When laboratory findings parallel human epidemic figures, greater significance can be given to both. “Medical history is filled with examples in which laboratory findings have proved ultimately to have their counterpart in human experience. There hav e, been lew exceptions.” Abnormal changes in the lining of the lungs can be produced in a few months in experimental animals. Dr. Kotin said. Some of these changes are similar to those that forecast the approach of lung cancer. I.ung Changes Similar rapid changes can be expected in human lungs, he said. Where a person has lived for a number of years or the type of work he has done may be associated with these changes in the lung cell walls, but not necessarily, he said. Many air pollutants can combine to make human lungs more susceptible to cancer in a shorter time than previously believed, he said. Official Notice All seniors who have had their senior pictures taken for the El Bodeo and have their proofs should return them by Wednesday, March 13. If proofs are not returned, selection of the picture will be made by the photo office because of deadlines in getting the book out by graduation time. All those who were photographer at the end of Feb. and the first week of Mar. should come to the photo office to make a selection of their picture by March 12. Sex Equality On Campus To Be Aired Telecom Major Mike O’Neil will probe a touchy subject today on his “Sniffing the News” television show over KUSC-TV. O'Neil will investigate the equality of the sexes on the Trojan campus, starting at 12:45 p.m. Last week O’Neil, who goes in for zany subjects, led a discussion on a nevv polygamy bill being brought up in the legislature. O'Neil will interview sorority and dormitory members who, he promises, “will have frank opinions on this subject.” Two 15-minute shows will precede “Sniffing the News” on today’s TV schedule. “New Faces” at 12:15 will feature singers, dancers and comedians in their campus TV debuts. Bill Colman will emcee the new series. Anyone wishing to audition for this show can apply at the KUSC-TV offices in the Hancock Foundation. “The Potter,” a film produced by the department of cinema, will show the production of ceramic art. Otto and Vivika Heino star in the film. “The Potter” starts at 12:30. Senate to Hear SC Voting Change Plans After four months of research, the Senate Elections Evaluation Committee, chairmaned by Clu-nie Denholm, will present its controversial proposal concerning rules governing campaigning and electioneering to a vote before the ASSC Senate tonight. If this amendment is passed it will place a restriction upon the amount of campaign literature, which has flooded the university in the past student body elections. The proposal rules that each candidate will be alloted up to 100 posters to be placed in specified locations on campus and that no handbills may be used by any campaigner. Six Posters The amendments require that candidates will be allowed to place six posters along the University Ave. islands: one in each of the professional schools: one in each fraternity and sorority | house; and a limit of three in \ each dormitory. An ASSC president-appointed | Board of Protest w’ill enforce the ruling and all violators will be subject to this board. “At present there are no specific rules governing elections,” Miss Denholm 6aid “This proposal will limit campaigns to the initiative of gimmicks and the speaking ability of the campaigner.” Report on Progress Jim Johnston, National Student Association coordinator, will present a report on the progress of the NSA. He will divide his report into two sections. The first section comprises the major resolutions passed by the congress, whether they warrant implimentation and what the stand of the delegation will be at the next Congress. The second part wall be a recapitulation of the previous weeks’ report plus some extra material that concerns the NSA’s future on the SC campus. Johnston will conclude his report with a summary of the NSA’s activities during the past year. Increasing Wages Lillian Kim’s committee studying the possibilities of increasing student wages for campus employment will also report their progress. The committee, consisting of Miss Kim, Dick McAdoo, senior class president; Johnny Johnson, senator-at-large; Mort Schoenherr, Ij^S president, and Rafiq Ahmed, foreign student’s representative, was appointed at the last Senate meeting to investigate a new’ plan proposed to aid student workers at SC.
