S. C. campus yesterday. An old-fashioned El Rddeo of the days when Bill Harts and Harry Careys were as thick as fleas on an alley cat, gave proper atmosphere for the sale of the El tfodeo, the annual publictaion of the juniors. According to the old wiseacres, a word to the wise is sufficient. Tomorrow is the laat day in which subscriptions will be taken for the publication. Coeds Have Scare Fair coeds were routed from the classy perches along University avenue and forced to scuttle for the basement when the six-shooter barrage began. Reluctant students were boldly roped into the arena, and forced to sign up to an I. O U. Erstwhile dignified students blossomed out Into haber-dash-ery that made the blue on the Administration buildings blush for shame. Cowgirls that never existed under the canopy of heaven in reality, paraded the halls with spurred boots and Marcel waves. Circus Boys Appear After the dead and wounded had been cleared from the front lawn, the cow gentlemen and cow ladies retired to Bovard field, where six prize broncho busiers and lariat twisters from the Howe’s Great London Circus, awaited. These performers from the big top gave some of the most thrilling stunts seen in years; If it came to a draw in selecting the star performer, undoubtedly the friendly pup that in-sisted on running the Marathon, wuuld win hands down. Quoting verbatim the big mogul trom the circus, the boys weren’t roughnecks, even if they did belong to a circus. Incidentally, they were all Harvard graduates. The lone lady equestrienne hailed from Vassar. Miss Gilbert Interviewed According to Florence Gilbert the El Rodeo will appear the flrst week in June. It is to have a black leather cover, with gold embossing. El Rodeo of 1922 is to be dedicated to Marc N. Goodnow of the Journalism department. One of the unusual features of the book is the hand-lettered dedicatory page. ^ “There are to be more snapshots and photographs than ever before,” said Mss Gilbert. “Every organization of importance on the campus will be represented. There are to be eight moss green inserts of compus scenes.” Basement window /jueeners are at tost to come into their own. A* a 8<Vdal section.

A. H OFFICIALS Record of 20:4 Seconds in Furlong Is not Recognized Because Feather Fluttered Slightly By L. Kling Stoddart Now that Charlie Paddock’s great sensation on the cinder path has thoroughly permeated through the country, numerous trainers, athletes, and sport critics have proceeded to air their views on the subject. In the East, where track is rated on a par with football, Paddock was acclaimed a hero and heralded extensively as a premier sprinter, his physiognomy appearing in numberless publications But the pinch came when the A. A. U. officials announced that the world’s records established at Berkeley only a couple of weeks ago, would not be considered final. A. A. U. Officials Disagret Objections were raised to thet e records, made by Paddock, mainly on the grounds that conditions were not perfect. It was discovered that when a flimsy feather was dropped to the ground from an altitude of five or six feet that it did not fall in a direct line, thus a wind must have been blowing. Eastern critics have objected to let the records stand for various abstract reasons. Everything at Berkeley has been “razzed” from the way the cinders were laid on the track to the kind of pants Paddock wore and the kind of gum he chewed, while running. Some critics, who have ac cused the blon(j runner of being super-stituous, said there must have been an abundance of wood near the U. C. track, and that he undoubtedly ARIZONA TRIP |F0R BASEBALL TEAM PROBABLE Team Leaves Today for Series If Plans Go Through Without Further Delay (Continued on page 3) Satisfies Need for a Manual to Idiomatic Scotch Usage °EAN LAYCOCK WILL SPEAK TO ALUMNI c*'«» Laycock, dean of Dartmouth or th ’ Han°ver, N H., now on a tour Wouth visiting the various Dart- 's L jluran* organizations, arrived % v? ngeleB yesterday for a three-diuni.8" speak at the annual cljti of the Dartmouth Alumni Asso-held Southern California, to be tiigh, l“e University Club tomorrow fW,and will leave Friday for San ^“•wco and the Pacific northwest. One of the most recent arrivals from the Cambridge University Press is The Manual of Modern Scots," which was written by James Main Dixon of the English department and William Grant of Aberdeen, Scotland. The need for such a book, which treats of the usage of the Scottish language, has long been felt by. professors of literature. The preface of the book states the following: “The idea of this work first occurred to one of the authors, Dr. Main Dixon, in the course of his experience In lecturing on Scottish Literature to Ills students in the University of Southern California. He felt the need of a book to which he could refer them for details of Scottish Grammar and Pronunciation, which he could employ, in class, for the recitation of our literary masterpieces, and which the students themselves, after they left the university, could use either for purposes of declamation or teaching “The book is divided into four parts. Part I describes the sounds of Modern Scots with examples of their use written in the alphabet of the International Phonetic Association. Part II contrasts Scots Grammar with Standard English usage and gives copious illustrations from Modern Scottish Literature Parts III and IV consist of a series of extracts from Modern Scots writers and a selection of ballads and songs with phonetic transcriptions.’’ As is usual with Dr. Dixon’s works, the manual is exceptionally well written and'the subject matter Is splendidly presented. MRS. GAW PRESIDENT OF BROWNING CLUB Mrs. Allison (law, wife of Dr. Allison Gaw, was elected president of the Hrownin* Club, at Its last meeting Although two other candidates were running for the office, Mnr ^aw received (he unanimous vote of the c.ub For the past few years, Mrs Gaw has been actively connected with the club. Last year she had charge of the program committee A series of pni grams were presented which compared the works of Browning with those of Carlisle, Shelley, Tennyson, and oth era. Mrs. Gaw is also a well known writer of verse. ATHLETIC CLUB SMEARED Battery Holds Blue and White Squad While Hitters Bring Home Bacon Defeating the Los Angeles Athletic Club last Saturday by the score of 8 to 5, U. S. C.’s nine upset all the advance dope and spilled tbe beans of the Blue and White for the first time in many years. The clubmen were heavy favorites at the start of the game, but when the flrst Inning saw three Trojans cross the plate, their stock went down considerably. Hinrichs performed on the mound for the Trojans, while Hart did the pitching for the L. A. A. C. The game was played at Maier Park, Vernon. Arizona Trip This Week U. S. C. has received offers from Arizona to make a trip for the purpose of staging a series with the Wildcats on the latter’s grounds. The trip will, ln all likelihood, take place this week, the men starting this afternoon and returning by Monday morning. The games would be played on the 13th, 14th and ir,th, and while at this writing some uncertainty still ex ists as to the proposed journey, indications from the office of the graduate manager point to the trip as a strong probability. This would be the first trip in two years, for the purpose of meeting an other university in afeeries, and should it be undertaken, will be a strong In centive for future diamond stars to make S. C. their goal. The outcome is doubtful, for Arizona’s team is not well known here, and no legitimate grounds of comparison between the two nines is available. It Is certain, however, to make stronger the friendly relations between the universities which already exists, and if the Cardinal and Gold is victorious, it will speak well for future chances for the Southern California championship. Club Game Close Saturday’s game was evenly balanced until the lucky seventh, which turned the tide for U. S. C. The Trojans started in the lead, but the Blue and White evened things up, and from this time on the game was close. Then Henderson’s outfit scored three, and the margin gave them the victory, which is the second this season. Disappointment was felt that it could not be played at Exposition Park, as was first scheduled, for as yet the university has had not good chance to see the team in action. Friday morning Graduate Manager Bruce was informed of the necessary change in place, and as a result, the contest had Maier’s historic Vernon Park for its setting Auto races were held at the park adjoining the campus. The work of Hinrichs and Schmitz, the Trojan battery, was the outstanding feature. Both men performed together like clockwork, and while the clubmen made five runs, they were scattered through the game and were not enough to overcome the Trojan scoring. The line-up: U S. C. L. A A.

POLITICIANS ARE PRIMED FOR THE STUDENT ELECTION Grooming of Favorite Sons By Admiring Friends Attracts Much Speculation LOCKF.TT NOT TO ENTER Sighs of Bartering for Office Already Apparent; Maginnis Ment>c:.cJ for Presidency According to rumors that are rampant on the campus, there are as many prospective candidates for student body offices as there are candles on a Christmas tree. It seems that each sorority, each fraternity, and each organization has ln mind some favorite son who would be just the man for the place. That is exactly as it should be, for if the best men and women from all groups do not come forward the student body will not be enabled to choose the best person for the office sought. But with*all the rumors of candidates and their intentions no one has come out and definitely stated that he or she would make the long, arduous run for office. In fact, many of the favorite sons were on the campus yesterday urging some one else to get out (Continued on page 4) E DIVORCE CASE STAGED BY SKULL £ DAGGER Visitors on the campus las* Friday should not labor under the misapprehension that the sprightly youths gamboling about the front lawn were a walking delegation from the booby-hatcli. They were merely initiates of Skull and Dagger, University honor society. “Swede” Evans appeared in a new black and white spring model sport skirt and georgette crepe waist. His coy, blonde curls were the piece de resistance. “Spec” Schiller was charmingly attired in a large beach umbrella draped with signs, a kahki shirt and a pair of abbreviated trousers of the vintage of 1902, As he appeared minus shoes and hosiery, it Is understood that the far-famed Holy Rollers formed the motive for his costume. After a parade through various class rooms, “Jimmy” Woodward, "Tlnyl Townsend, Gross Alexander, '-Dutch” Heinrichs, Harold Mulhollen and Howard Butterfield held a rodeo on the campus, consisting of an obstrep-orous mule and one William Goat, who raised his eyebrows considerably at the strange proceedings. Nevertheless, he enjoyed himself by devouring the lawn. Later they assembled in the chapel, where the trial of Harry Gallstone versus Ida Gallstone was scheduled to take place. Ida Gallstone, dimly recognized as ‘Swede’’ Evans, had hailed her husband CJmmy” Woodward) before the authorities by virtue of his versatile accomplishments, namely: Wife-beating, kidnaping, drunkenness and dope-shooting. Outside of this, he was practically a model husband. Gross Alexander, the venerable Judge, and Merle McGinnis, as the attorney for the plaintiff, upheld the dignity of the law? Everything proceeded beautifully until Mr. Unconscious Mothballs was disqualified for witness duty on ac count of bad breath. The charming offspring of Harry and Ida Gallstone, dear little Bunny, upset the equilibrium of the entire trial by his adorable daintiness. The precocious child had already learned to roll his own. The meeting was almost broken up when “Jimmy” Woodward, as Papa Gallstone, flatly refused the hootch which had served as Inspiration for the witnesses. After the family laundry had been aired sufficiently, and Bunny’s paternal parent admonished by the Judge on "How to retain a wife's affection," a recon-iliation was finally affected. Harry lallstopes then stepped on his spouse, who, fearful lest he become homesick, swung a powerful left to bla jaw and temporarily incapacitated him for further activity A lovely time was had by all, the trial ending 1* a riot. Dr. Bovard Sanctions; Passed by Resolution By a resolution passed on ApriJ 11, the Associated Student Council,voted to Inaugurate an honor system in U. S. C. that is similar to that adopted in many other universities throughout the country. This topic has been discussed for several months, and came to a head Monday, when Dr. George Bovard, president of U. S. C., gave his official sanction. Dr. Bovard is a firm believer in student government, and has done much to make such a condition a reality. Student Standards Raised The resolution passed by the student council is not a detain'd honor system in every sense of the word, but Is a great advance over the present system now in use at U. S. C. The new regime will give every student an opportunity to tAke part in the government of this university. So, as student standards raise, student control will increase, thus greatly Improving conditions at college. Up to the Students This new honor system Is now up for discussion, and Gwynn Wilson, chairman of the student council, urges students of the university to'Express their opinions, because, to be a success, it must be backed by the entire student body. Opinions of many representative members of U. S. C. will be printed ln the Trojan. Scope of the Honor System Matters to be takea up under the new system pertain to cheating in examinations and general student discipline. Cases of all kinds will be taken up before the student council. Their decisions will be at all times subject to sanction of the president, Dr. Bovard. ln this way every student may have a chance to report such actions to the council and may take an active paTt in their government. The resolutions follow : Resolved, that the president of the Student Council is empowered by the president, of the university to be a court of appeal ln all matters of student irregularities. Individual cases of gambling, cribbing, or violations of the honor code may be brought before this council for Judgment. The council considers it the privilege and duty of every student to report such viqjations as he observes. TRUNKS, TRAIN, TICKETS, TRAVEL TIPS TELL TALE Dr. Lowrey’s European Trip Progressing Splendidly. Students Interested. Advantages Explained and Points of Interest Described. Still a Chance to Go. By Charles Paddock Dr. Lowrey of the History Department, who has graciously offered an opportunity for some of the students to explore the ancient confines of old Europe, not only secured the trip at a greatly reduced figure, but Is continually finding new ways of reducing the expense. * First it was found that those lucky ones making the Journey would have a splendid steamer trunk provided for their own particular use by the company, so that when the travelers tired of'gazing at the moon across the sea, of an evening, could retire to their cabins and roll the dominoes up and down the smooth surface of the aforementioned trunk top. Fare to N. Y. Reduced But this is not all. llarken to this: The railroad rates to New York are to be reduced and not by four bits or a dollar, but by the munificent sum of forty-five semoleons. Those who h«ve already planned to make the trip under the old price will suddenly find “Old Line” Contest Tryouts To Be Held Last of April Oratorical stars Are deep ln preparation for^the big Southern California “Old Line” contest as this Is one of the biggest forensic honors that can come to an Institution. The local tryout will be held on April 22. The winner Is to receive one semester’s tuition and the right to represent the university in the final contest to be held at Occidental on May 19th Every Institution in Southern California will be represented ln the struggle for the awards. A medal Is to be given to the orator who achieves first place and a loving cup is to be presented to tho college which the <u dent is representing. themselves supplied with some extra money, out of a clear blue sky, while this reduction will be just the thing to help some striving young traveler to make the trip. There is still u chance for some more people to make the trip, which Is certainly a golden opportunity to see the wonderB of the Old Country and also a chance to acquire practically ti:e same ftumber of credits as would otherwise be gained through attending summer school. As this action has been taken by other institutions having students go on trips of this kind for educational and pleasurable purposes, lt Is to be expected that U. S. C. will do the same. An Interesting Itinerary It Is impossible to enumerate all of the cities which this expedition will visit. Antwerp, Assisi, that ancient hill town, (wlilch is the birthplace of the Franciscan order, where the monks go gliding under the massive monastery walls; Avignon, the residence of (1 i/t Popes from 1309 to 1377, and many other cities of charm and ancient glory throughout Italy and France. Art centers, cities of medieval lore, and lands where people have lived and loved and died long before Caesar conquered the world or Claude Reeves became a student of U. S. C., will be visited. Then there are the battlefields, ancient and modern, where men have FRESHMEN TO ARGUE ON VARSITY TOPIC Frosh debaters are getting down to hard work as the contest with Santa Ana junior college on April 21 approaches. A spad of capable men are thrashing out the question for a place on the team. Several of the members have had previous experience ln the work. Claude Reeves Is coaching the team, and Is hopeful of duplicating his success with the' varsity which argued on the same question, "Resolved, That the United States should institute a responsible system of cabinet government." (Continued on page 4) WORLD TRADERS PRAISE COLLEGE OF COMMERCE In appreciation of the entertainment put on by several U. S. C. students at a recent meeting of the World Teachers’ Club, Professor E. E. Olson, of the College of Commerce, has received the following letter from Mr R. C. Mead, chairman of the program committee. Dear Mr. Olson: Won’t you let me express to you iny personal appreciation for the effort you made In making the recent meeting of the World Traders-a tremendous success. Upon reviewing the program, I find that all of my Ideas and hopes for such a University Night have been fulfilled, and I would like to express this to you and ask you to, in my name, thank all of the boys whom you brought along, ln speaking to these boys, tell them that I extend to them, through you, a persons 1 invitation to come down to the Western Wholesale Dru# Company and look over our export department, nd ask any questions which may occur relative to the distribution of drugs, chemicals and allied products to Latin America and the Orient. Yours very truly, (Signed) R C. MEA1
