The award, presented for the best editorial printed in the Daily Trojan the preceeding year by a member of the edi torial writing class, was established in 1934. Drake, a junior journalism major, was presented with the award during a luncheon in the Foyer of Town and Gown for more than 500 of the 1,000 students from high schools and junior colleges throughout Southern California who at tended the event. Bronze Plaque * Drake’s name will be added to a bronze plaque in the School of Journalism Library that lists such past winners as <radio newsman Cleve Herman, former managing editor Nita Biss and former editor Jerry Burns, now with the Valley Times Today. Current Daily Trojan editor Barbara Epstein won the award last year. Drake has served on the Daily Trojan as a copyreader and news editor and also as assistant city editor and Senate reporter. He was awarded Best Reporter and Best Copy-reader recognition last year. Other Winners The Daily Trojan award for the best junior college newspaper went to the Valley Star of Los Angeles Valley College at the Saturday program, and the Crombie Allen award for the best high school paper was given to the Lance of Lakewood High School. Competition for the two awards was among more than 70 high schools and 15 junior colleges. Individual awards were also given for best news and sports stories, editorials and photographs on the high school and junior college levels. composed of both foreign an o' American students. _______ It has proposed that the uni- versi* buy the Acacia house $f/V/0/?S WILL ATTEND 801 W. 28th St., to turn into the proposed center. “We feel that the center, j centrally located on 28th St., would help foreign students to integrate with American students,” Kenneth Katz, public relations chairman for the committee, explained. L’nsanctioned The committee leaders reported that so far they have received no official sanction from the administration, but predicted that the enthusiasm and interest shown so far could turn1 the program into a very successful project. Katz reported that the committee is already in the process of getting fraternities and sororities and religious and cultural organizations to pledge financial support. It is also asking for the backing of the student body, especially independents and commuters. Katz asked all interested students to contact Decker at RI 8-0547. Viets Logue, counselor of foreign students, said that current university policy “is not in favor of an International Center because it has a tendency to segregate the students into little ghettos." “However,” he added. "I feel that the students have thc privilege of presenting their opinions and getting satisfactory answers.” Piano,' Ping Pong The center would be equipped with a piano, snack facilities, card tables and table tennis ,in order to serve as a meeting place where American and foreign students could congregate informally and exchange ideas, Decker said. “The foreign student groups could even have offices at the center,” he added. “We feel that our 1,300 foreign students are of the finest qualitly, destined to be leaders of their nations,” Katz said. “From them we can learn FAREWELL PARTY FREE Seniors received an unexpected graduation surprise last week when class president Gary Elder announced that the Senior Farewell dance, slated to cost S4 per person, will be free. Elder reported that the administration and some students felt it was unfair for the more than 250 seniors who will “meet at Julies” this Saturday night from 9 to 1 to be compelled to pay for their final dance. “The university has offered to pay for the band and to underwrite the whole affair,” he said. Elder said that some of the cost was reduced by cancelling the buffet which was to precede the dance. “Students who have already purchased their tickets may have their money refunded in the Ticket Office, 209 SU,” he said. Music for the Senior Farewell will be provided by Dick Walker and his band. A student may come to the dance without a date, or he may bring a date who is not a senior, Elder said. Dress for the event will be suits and ties for men and cocktail dress for the women. During the evening, awards will be presented to 25 outstanding members of the Senior Class. “The administration has given us great support with this offer,” Elder said. “I hope all seniors will take advantage of this event.” with the mistakes committed in about their patterns of life and i its name. Authority Discusses Arab Nationalism By ARLINE KAPLAN Arab nationalism — the key to understanding the shifts in the Middle East — embodies the desire for independence, self-improvement and unity, the one-time director of the Arab States delegations office said recently. Dr. Fayez A. Sayegh, a visiting professor at Stanford University, told a gathering of international relations students that “the puzzling and perplexing reversal of trends in the Arab world can be resolved if we use the key of nationalism. The professor warned that nationalism, which is essentially good, should not be identified politics. “The center would provide us with an opportunity to improve our relationship with them.” Katz explainc » Jjiat the center committee could also plan such activities as tours and Sunday picnics for students. The committee plans to impress the administration with the support such a center would have by building an enthusiastic response among tlie students. Human Desire “The essense of nationalism is the desire of the human society to express itself in normalcy,” he said. He explained that when the people of a country are forced into separate political and social entities, they have a na tural desire for unity. Dr. Sayegh pointed out that the Arab world had been almost completely dominated by Ottoman Turks, succeeded by Coed Bats 1000, Ball Player, ASSC Wins Post —Daily Trojan Photo by Frank L. Kaplan TWO WINNERS — Although Betty Knox technically "won" Trojan catcher Steve DeLeaux at the Chimes-spon-sored Ladies' Day baseball game Friday, it's a toss-up as to who was the real winner. For DeLeaux will have a chance to escort the comely Tri-Delt to a free dinner and play this weekend as part of her "door prize." Luck has been with Asiatic studies junior Betty Knox. Two weeks ago she won an office as a write-in entry for ASSC vice president. Last Friday she won a baseball player. Miss Knox nabbed Trojan catcher Steve DeLeaux with ticket number 00441 at the special Chimes-sponsored Ladies’ Day baseball game on Bovard Field. The vice president-elect was one of several hundred coeds who received tickets at the game. The winning number was drawn from the hopper, “When they annunced it, Ijof the population owns 95 per the Europeans, and that this domination by foreign powers has resulted in a massive desire for liberation. “Now, we are asked if the people are ready for self-deter mination,” he continued. “Our record is the best answer, for in the short 10 or 15 years of Arab independence, we have built more schools, hospitals, port facilities, and industries than were built for us by the colonialists in the 400 proceedings years of history.” Self-Improvement He stressed, however, that independence from outside domination is meaningless unless that freedom is used to promote self-improvement. He described the rising of the masses as a landmark in Arab history. ‘The Arab world has been the scene of struggle of the masses for millenia,” he said. “They lived under privileged groups and were denied basic human rights. “Now, the people want equality, social justice and a higher standard of living,” he declared. Dr. Sayegh acknowledged that there are now new impediments to Arab unity, which he said are dynastic jealousy, rise of a commercial middle-class and the differences between the dy namic and static schools of thought in the means to achieve a better life. The professor cited the difference between the dynamic and static philosophies as the most significant obstruction to Arab unity. Static Wing “The static wing wants to uphold the status quo with the same social and economic structures, but it feels that a better life can be achieved by building more railroads, highways, schools and industries,” he explained. “The dynamic wing says that the root of our development problem lies in the feudal system,” he added. “To grapple with the problem of development is to confront the feudal system, in whicn five per cent Indian Expert Will Begin Talk Series A nuclear physicist from India will start a week of lec tures at the university today at 4:15 at the physics department weekly seminar in 159 Sci. Dr. B. D. Nag Chadhnri, director of the Saha Institute of Nuclear Physics, Calcutta, will speak on “Low Energy Research in Calcutta.” The visiting lecturer will give a lecture open to the public Thursday night at 7:30 in 226 FH on “Technology and Science in India.” Broad Program The Indian scientist will be appearing under the sponsorship of the American Association of Physics Teachers and the American Institute of Physics as part of a broad, nation-wide program to stimulate interest in physics. The program of visiting scientists in physics is fccirg conducted with the support of the National Science Founda tion. As part of the program, Dr. Nag Chaudhuri will meet informally with the university physics staff to discuss various methods of teaching and re search in his country. In addition to the lectures, he will also visit nearby col leges and secondary schools to learn about conditions under which physics is taught in the United States. Research Fields The scientist's fields of research include nuclear isomers, beta gamma ray spectrometry and Cerenkov radiation, the development of low background counters for radio-isotopes and biological studies as well as radioactivity of rocks and minerals. He has been a member of the Government of India Board of Research in Atomic Energy and of the Physical Research Committee. The scientist has also been editor of science and culture for the Hindusthan Standard, Calcutta daily newspaper. Daily Trojan Photo OVER THE QUOTA — Blood Drive chairman Jim Walsh marks up the score indicating the most blood to come from Trojans in the drive in many years. Watching and beaming are (front, l-r) Chip Polmteau and Brooke Gabrielson and (back, l-r) Sue Doak and Irene Alexander. Scientist to Receive Chemistry Award screamed,” the comely Tri-Delt said. “I thought it was fun, but I was surprised and embarrased.1 Miss Knox then drew the name of the baseball player she was to “win" from a hat. Catcher DeLeaux, who is starting his first year with the Trojan nine, reacted to the selection of his name with proper athletic stoicism. “I Weis surprised, I guess, the sophomore history major shrugged. Tlie winning couple will receive a free dinner and tickets to this Friday’s performance of “Under the Yum Yum Tree,” courtesy of Chimes. Oh. by the way, Miss Knox was not the only winner Friday. DeLeaux and the Trojan squad defeated Stanford, 4-0. cent of the land.” The professor explained that the dynamic wing will not hesitate in toppling monarchies. He stressed that neutralism will continue to be one of the cardinal elements of Arab nationalism in the Cold War. “In our hearts and minds we cannot accept the doctrines of communism, but still it has a history of no harm to us,” he explained. “While the West has fine values and ideals, governments have a record of betraying them. “We have a choice between the party with the good heart and harmful hands and the party with the bad heart arid harmless hands,” he noted. Faced with pressure from both sides, the Arab world chose jjeutralism. Prince Tal© To Be Told At Reading A tale for children and an allegory for adults, “The Little Prince” by Antoine de Saint-Exupery, will be the topic for the English Noon Reading today at 12:30 in 133 FH. Orin D. Seright, assistant professor of English, will read from the philosophical, almost magical treatise which emphasises the sensitive values in life. In French ‘The Little Prince’ was written originally in French,” Seright said. "But the beauty and philosophy come through just so well in English as in French.” Seright feels that Saint-Exupery’s precise ability to express himself and point out the fundamental values he’s trying to express are the strong points of his style. Saint-Exupery, was acutely aware of the life and world around him. Warm, Animated “He loved children and never thought too much about grownups,” Seright explained. “He Dr. Anton B. Burg, profes sor of chemistry here since 1939, has been chosen to receive the Tolman Medal in recognition of his broad accomplishment in the field of chemistry. The award, given by the Southern California Section of the American Chemical Society, is made on the basis of overall work rather than for a single fundamental discovery. Official Presentation Official presentation of the medal, which was established two years ago in memory of Dr. Richard Chase Tolman, noted physical chemist and former dean of graduate stud ies at Caltech, will be made at a dinner meeting of the society Friday. The first medal was given to Dr. William G. Young of UCLA. The current award to Dr. Burg is for 1961 and is the second to be made. Dr. Burg has been credited for his personal leadership in building USC’s chemistry de partment to a position of na tional eminence. He headed the department for 10 years. Research Papers The chemist’s more than 80 scientific research papers on compounds of boron, phosphorous, fluorine and silicon have contributed much to the modem development of inorganic chemistry. His doctoral dissertation in 1931 was the first work in the United States on the boron hydrides—compounds of boron and hydrogen — which have shown promise as rocket fuels joined boron, a light non-me-taliic element, to other elements such as phosphorous or arsenic in new chemical bonds, lending to the development of entirely new plastics. The Tolman Medal also hon ors Dr. Burg for his international recognition and leadership in promoting renewed interest in inorganic chemistry by opening new horizons in the field of phosphorous chemistry, for his research work during World War II and for his work for the National Science Foundation and the National Research Council. Honoraries Seek Bids Petitions for Knights and Squire membership will be available all week in the Dean of Students Office, SU 233, Knights President Mike Guhin reported Friday. Applicants for Squire membership must have completed at least 28 units by fall of 1961, while Knights hopefuls must have had at lea.it 60 units finished. “Selection will be based not only upon past, present and future service to the university, but also on the candidates’ ability to be knowledgeable and representative of the Trojan spirit,” Guhin said. Petitions must be returned to the Dean of Students Office before noon, April 12. On Friday, April 13, all applicants must and are important for applica- take a test on material taken tions in organic chemistry. from SCampus and on general As another “first” Dr. Burg knowledge of the university. Breaks 5-Year Drought The Blood Drive went over its quota for the first time in “at least five, and probably ten years” Friday when 202 students descended on the collection center to put the drive 6 pints over its 600-pint goal. Drive chairman Jim Walsh said the last-minute outpouring of donations that allowed Troy to go over its assigned quota in the annual Red Cross event raised the total to 606 pints, with more donations at the Red Cross center yet to be tabulated. The drive got off to a slow start Tuesday, and remained below its daily schedule for the rest of the week until last-hour appeals, including a call at the USC-Stanford baseball game when four pints were still needed, put the drive over the top. Timely Transfusion “We expected that last-minute giving would help us make our goal, and we’re certainly proud that this year’s student body was willing to make the final effort,” Walsh said. The hlood drive chairman said that pint totals for the inter-group competitions would not be available until today, but point totals established Theta Chi as the winner in that part of the fraternity race and Alpha Phi in the sorority battle. The contest for the point trophy rated organizations on the basis of numbers pledged and rejected as well as numbers actually donated. The pint-total race will be decided on the basis of actual pints given in relation to the total membership of the group. Trojan Knights bested the Squires in the point contest with 21% to 14, while Amazons outlasted Spurs 15 & to 13, with Chimes third at 9 points. Military Blood NROTC won over AFROTC by 125% to 7%. Stonier Hall topped the men’s dorms with 13 points, and Town and Gown led the women's dorms with 22. Leaders in the fraternity contest were Theta Chi, 42; Sigma Alpha Epsilon, 35%; Theta Xi, 22; Kappa Alpha, 15%; Tau Epsilon Phi, 14%; Sigma Phi Epsilon, 13%; Pi Kappa Alpha, 12%; Sigma Chi, 12; and Zeta Beta Tau, 11%. In the sorority race, Alpha Gamma Delta followed Alpha Phi’s winning 25% points with 23%, while Kappa Kappa Gamma had 16 and Delta Delta Delta, 10%. The total for Independents was 279 points, while the Row had 398%. Walsh said the sorority enthusiasm was a “big surprise” and was far over last year s turnout. “If the fraternities could have increased as much as we would have had no trouble at all,” he said. Briton Lauds Counselors For Divorce Rate Drop The British divorce rate is declining for the first time in more than 100 years, and one of the main reasons is a na-was a very warm, animated and tionwide marriage counseling real human being — a delight- service, according to A. Jo ful person to have known.” ^ph Brayshaw, director of the Seright feels that “The Little National Marriage Guidance Prince” is far more than a Council of Great Britain. children’s story. “The emphasis is placed on sensitivity and the real meaning of life,” he said. “Saint-Exupery, a pilot in World War II, uses one of his own adventures, a plane crash in the Sahara, as a springboard for his getting to know the little prince and all the adventures he's had.” In a speech Friday evening on campus, Brayshaw pointed out that California’s divorce rate is six times that of Great Britain, where only 24,000 couples are divorced annually. He said the difference was even more startling when we consider it is easier and cheaper than ever before to obtain a divorce in his countjry. The Manchester University graduate explained that his counseling organization has 900 counselors around the country who are trained to give couples an insight into their problems and help them work our. tteir own solutions. The volunteer counselors work in teams “to spread the burden of anxiety t h i n,” he said. He noted that dealing with marriage problems is a very tense matter, since emotion runs so strongly between the partners. Brayshaw reported studies of past “clients” which showed one-third to have been “very much satisfied” with his coun- cil’s service, and another third who reported the counseling had not helped them. More than 13,000 couples came for help last year, he said, and pointed out that this uas half the number who received divorces in the same period. “Of course, many of these were the same people.” he said. In explaining the reason for mounting divorce actions around the world, Brayshaw laid the blame on the greater equality between the partners, but pointed out that this equality was also the basis for many more successful and happy marriages tha^ in the past.
