One of the newest home build-. ers on the 53 lot area is the recently appointed head coach Don Clark. The first homes in ! the area were built in 1932. One of these is the home of Dr. Carl Q. Christo] of the political science department. ! “We find it a very favorable system and since every famiiv has a mutual tie the university ' —we have enough in common to make good neighbors.” stated Dr. Christol, commenting on the home life in the project. At the present time 20 to 25 of the 53 lots are occupied by faculty homes and most of the ! other lots have been sold to faculty members and Trojan 1 alumni. Paved streets, trees, sidewalks and underground utility lines were all accomp'ishcd within and through this project. By DAVID C.

Symphonic Band To Give Concert HAND-BLOWN ART Noted Lecturer Exhibits Blown Glassware Series By JOYCE LAMBEAU Glass blowing is his hobby, j metallurgy his profession and world peace his desire. John Burton, internationally known lecturer and radio commentator. now has a unique series of blown glassware on exhibition in Fisher Gallery, adjoining Harris Hall. The display will be shown 1 from 12:30 to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays until Feb. 28. Burton's hand-blown glass duplicates that produced in ancient Egypt. Europe of the Middle Aees and Renaissance, and Colonial America. The only person alive who floes this type of work. Burton began his glass blowing hobby rhile working as a metallurgist for the Admiralty in his native England. Made Without Molds Burton terms his glass “off hand glass." meaning glass made all the way through by the artist without molds, using only heat, gravity, skill and a few traditional hand tools of the glass maker. Each glass piece that Burton blows requires extensive research as well as hours and even davs of painstaking labor. The texture and color of his pieces are as close as anyone has arrived at recreating the pieces found in the sands and i tombs of ancient Egypt. Burl on ; has trained himself to think as the ancients did while he works. Ancient Art Glass production is an ancient art. The earliest isolated pieces of Egyptian glass date hack to 12.000 B.C. The oldest pure glass was evidenf in 7.000 B.C., and glass production has been continuous since 1500 B.C. Until 200 B.C. glass was considered as valuable as most pieciou* gems. Blown glass became a popular art in 200 A.D. The 89-piece Trojan Symphonic Band will present its annual winter concert in Bovard Auditorium, Sunday evening at 7:30. The public is invited and there will be no admission charge. The band is under the direction of William A. Schaeler, Director of Bands and an associate professor in the School of Music. The concert will be in tribute of the two great band music composers, Henry Fillmore and Edwin Frano Goldman, who died this past year. The concert will open and close with marches by these two men. “Americans We!” .by Fillmore will be the first num- ) ber played. “On Parade” by1 Goldman, who was a frequent visitor to the Trojan Band, vvili conclude the program. Schaefer has long been attracted to the use of wood-vvind instruments in orchestral score and the possibilities it suggest ed for band performance. Although the composer pie-paied a revised edition to Ihe Suite in 1948 from his 1911 work, Schaefer's transcription is based on the original score. The Symphonic Band is made up of university men and women who love and have a deep interest in music. They are from all fields of study (pie-med, law, engineering, etc.) and are from various parts of California and the United States. AMS SPONSORED Orientation Dance Scheduled Friday The AMS Page, a sponsored Orientation Dance, will be held Friday r.ight from 8:30 to 12 in the Student Union Lounge to acquaint freshmen students witn each other. The dance is part of a big brother and big sister program cosponsored by the Knights, Squires and Troeds. The dance will replace the AMS Smoker and the AWS Tea, which were held in the past. Make New Friends “I certainly hope that all freshman men and women will attend this affair on Friday. It is the first of its kind and should offer an opportunity for students to meet new people, and consequently make nevv friends,’’ said. Phil Kelmar, the organization’s director. No admission will be charged and refreshments will be served. Prominent school officers and officials will also be on hand. First Open Activity “Regardless of standing any student is welcome to attend this stag,” announced Mike Loshin, Page dance chairman. This will be the first open activity by the Pages this year. Prior to this semester, the organization was known as the Freshman Men's Club, but the name was officially changed by a vote of the members. Cookie-Eater Gives Bonus To Girl Scout Between yesterday and today someone was munching some Girl Scout Cookies that cost them a small fortune. One of the ten Girl Scouts who were on campus yesterday selling cookies — a thin blond, possibly pig-tailed girl in a green uniform named Donna Lambert—received a large bill from someone and gave them the wrong change. The trtiop leader, Mrs. Schell, discovered the error when a member of the troop asked little Miss Lambert for change and the ten year old said. “I have no change. All I have are these bills.” Mrs. Schell investigated the girl's holdings and found much more than she should have. Mrs. Schell immediately informed the Daily Trojan about the incident and asked help in locating the person, man or woman, who received the wrong; change. “We would be happy to keep it and could sure use the extra money. We don't feel justitied in doing so though.” Mrs. Schell ’ said. It was completely unintentional on the part of Donna. If the person who thinks that he was short-changed by one i of the Girl Scouts would contact Mrs. Schell by phone and identify the place, time and size of the bill, he will receive the money that is coming to him. hers of the Senate to investigate ^ the Dohenv Librarv situation.
