JARES SCs red-hot basketball team ■ turned stone cold at the Pan-Pacific Auditorium last night, losing to the UCLA Bruins, 65-55, in another thrill-packed ’ game. Coach Forrest Twogood’s boys couldn't find the range in the ' second meeting of the two scrappy clubs, but the largest basket- 1 ball crowd of the season at the Pan-Pacific saw an exciting game — the type of game that has been almost typical in Pacific Coast Conference play. Last Game The victory by the Bruins in their last game of the season i gave them a 23-4 record and, depending on other games this weekend, a possible championship or tie for the championship. The loss by SC »iped out any chance the Trojans had for a share in the title. This was the 11th meeting between the two schools, and going into the contest, SC has a strong 71-39 edge. Now' it stands at 71-40. SC now has a 9-5 , league record with two more I games remaining this coming weekend. UCLA finished with an excellent league record, 13-3, losing one game apiece to Washington's Boin. Smart and company, California's Bears and SC last week. It is one of Coach Johnny Wooden's best seasons at the Westwood school. Now the Bruins must sit back with their ears glued to the radio to see how Calilornia does this Friday and Saturday with the battling Trojans and how Washington’s Huskies do with their traditional rivals, Washington State. League Record In order to gain a share for the title, SC would have had to beat UCLA last night, sweep the Cal series and have Washington drop at least one to Washington State. All these things happening would have required a miracle, but SC fans had their hopes high for the minute chance of a tie for the title coming about. The game was very close in the first half, with SC hitting 32.4 per cent of its shots and the DANNY ROGERS . . . dan, dan, dandy SC vs. CAL Bus Rides Set For Came Fans Bus transportation will be available for Trojans who are planning to attend the basketball games against California this week at the Pan-Pacific Auditorium.

Fee Actually Savings Angeloff po:nted out 'hat because of parking rees an.l gasoline money, the dollar fee for transportation would ‘actually be a saving.” Last night’s game was attended by 800 white-shiilcd Trojans. Because of previous overcrowded rooting sections, Angeloff urges students t,-> "come early if you want a seat in the rooting section.” Saturday night’s game wi! i»e in honor of the Fies.nnan t.aio.

Dan Rogers, Suzie Rice, Smile Best SUZIE RICE a new champion Suzie Rice and Danny Rogers were voted "top smilers on campus” in the annual “Hello and Smile Week” contest held last wejk. The contest sponsored by Phrateres womens service organization was judged by Mrs. Pat Arnold, the SC housing director: Carl Terzian, this student body president; and Wes Gregory, the city editor of the DT. The winners were announced last Saturday night at the Phra- j teres formal in the Redwood Room of the Hollywood Hotel. Miss Rice a junior in education and a member of Delta Gamma sorority was chosen queen of tbe j smile contest over two other finalists. Paige Bovee and Gwen i Norton were the other two I queen finalists. Bruins hitting 32.6 per cent. It ! was that close. The first half was interesting in that each team had only three men doing ! the scoring, Banton, Burke ana Rogers for UCLA and Rogers, Dye and Gonzales for the Trojans. Dick "Skeeter” Banton closed out his basketball career at Westwood with a terrific night. The Compton College transfer came close to pumping in 50 per cent of his field goal attempts and took high point honors for the game. He had 11 points at the half and 19 for game. Banton tossed in five for 11 shots from the floor and did very well on defense* Ten of his points came from field goals and nine came from free throws, and free throws was one of the main reasons for the Bruin victory. Poor Shooting Wooden s hustling team dumped in 23 free throws in 34 trips to the charity line. Crabtree had four for four. Banton had an amazing nine for 11, and Burke hit four out of six. Surprisingly enough, Ben Rogers, UCLA's best free throw shooter up to last night, missed ail three of his charity attempts. SC, on the other hand, did miserably from the free throw line, hitting only 15 of 33 attempts. That is worse than 50 per cent. Jim Sterkel hit only two out of seven attempts. Dye hit four for eight. Danny Rogers kept up his good free throw shooting, however, hitting six out of nine. Forrest Twogood, who deserves much applause for his work with the Trojan five, was dejected at the game's end. Condition Evident He said, “We couldn’t shoot well because we were so tired. I hope we can get rested up for Cal.” The condition of the SC cagers was evident in the game. Center Jim Sterkel. tired from three tough games in a week, had to be taken out frequently for rests. UCLA's Johnny Wooden also hoped the Trojans could get rested up. He told the Daily Trojan, “The Trojans must not be as tired against Cal or they're eoing to lose. SC must come back.” Bad Play About his -team's play, the Westwood mentor said. “If we played like that asainst Cal. we would have lost both games.” SC Captain Danny Rogers played his usual hard-driving game and was just behind Ban-(Continued on Page 5) Fatalism Hit By Columnist “Fatalism is mystical weak-mindedness that ultimately leads to the resignation of life and the welcoming of death.” stated Nina De Roo, graduate student in the department of English and former teaching assistant at SC, in her theater column of this month's Frontier Magazine. In her review of Giradoux’s "Tiger at the Gates.” Mrs. De Roo further debunked fatalism by stating that "it flourishes in historical periods of despair and ignorance.” Lecturer to Conduct European Tour Travelers Will Leave From Quebec on Summer Jaunt Conducting a live Man and Civilization class with Canada and Europe as the classrooms is what Dr. Wayne V. Miller, lecturer in general studies, has listed on his agenda for this summer. Dr. Miller has conceived a European tour, connected with the university for credit, for 20 people who will leave Quebec June 26, tour 12 countries and return there on Sept. 4. “This tour, unlike most summer tours, will include Scandinavian and Scotland,” Miller said, “and is arranged so that those taking the tour will be able to go off on their own several times. Private motor coaches will take the tour to out-of-the-way places and make unscheduled , stops whenever requested. The 20 who eventually will , comprise the tour will have the advantage of information from Dr. Miller with ‘?io attending of lectures, no exams and a vacation from school . . . students j work enough during school ! time,” said the Man and Civilization lecturer. The tour will begin at Quebec so that the group can contrast the Canadian French atmos- | phere with that of the Parisian French. From Canada, they will j sail to England and continue through Scotland and the Scandinavian countries. After motoring in the Nether- j lands and Brus.^ls, members of | the tour will go to Germany to visit Heidelberg University and 1 go through Munich. In Italy they will be able to see the famous mosaics in Ravenna, made in the Byzantine Empire at the time of Theodora and Justinian. The Chateau country, Chartres and Versailes are the spots to be visited in France after the tour has passed through Switzerland. "Paris and London will be saved as desserts to finish the tour ... if we went to Paris j first, no one would want to : leave.” said Dr. Miller. Dr. Miller was in Europe in 1955 and drove 6000 miles through the various countries for three and a half months. When he was returning he was I extremely worried that he might not be back in time for the SC-Washington State football game. He arrived on a Friday night and was in the Coliseum at 2 p.m. Saturday afternoon viewing the game . . .” I’ve not missed an SC football game in 11 years,” he said. Eight more people are needed to fill the quota of 20. Anyone interested in being served European history in a relaxed manner by one who has a sideline of football should contact Dr. Miller in 303 FH or at 1314 W. Santa Barbara Ave. in Los Angeles (AX 2-7188). The cost, w hich includes transportation. lodging, meals, sightseeing and tips, is -1285.
