He lf*£<ltf* tl) mloronco Education Plan To Originate At SC Soon To he provenu lp meet the need for im-nt and expansion of the country's system of higher education, the United States National Student Association is setting up a nationwide program a plan in which SC may play an important role. This extensive project was outlined by ASSC president Larry Sipes, at Wednesday's Senate meeting. Fifteen universities will b lected as “pilot" campuses these schools program« enacted in an attempt proble tion. se-At will lie to solve facing higher educa-particular: increasing future numl>ers of faculty members. increasing the effectiveness of the faculty and curriculum and increasing availability of counseling assistance to college and high school students, Sipes explained. The program at each campus will bo under the supervision of a student campus director, who will attend national and regional meetings to exchange ideas on the planning and procedure of suggested proposals, he said. Discussion workshops will lie held on the campuses with student government officals and appropriate administrative and faculty personnel attending them. Those groups will submit to the student government plans which they would like to become “nacted in the universities’ programs and which they feel would solve the problems with which education is confronted.

Troy Camp Puts Petitions Out for Counseling Posts Applications for counseling positions on the 1958 Troy Camp Committee will he available starting Monday in the ASSC office, 215 SU, according to Abe Somer, head counselor. Tbey must be turned in by Thursday. "Any full-time student is eligible to apply for a counselor’s job.” Somer said, “and there are approximately 25 spots open." "In addition, we will probably tccept some alternates," he added. Tr-y Camp is an all-SC spon-lored summer recreation camp for underprivileged children, supported entirely by student pontribut ions from Troy Chest.

Good vs. Evil Dr. Gezork wi 1 use the devil’s fall from an angel of light to exemplify the idea that in “everything good and noble lurks the danger of its perversion into something that is evil." He feels that this happens w hen a “sturdy realism turns into a despairing pessimism." At the beginning of this century. an optimistic attitude prevailed about the immediate future of mankind. Since then, the events which have swept across the world have left disillusionment in tneir wake. Nevertheless. realistic views of the future are creating the solid foundations for the coming generations, he believes. Rad Pessimistic Mood 'But a dangerous attitude may descend from ‘the clear light of realism’ creating a gloom of cynicism and pessimism." Dr. Gezork asserts. “I should like to warn against this mood. The disillusioned pessimist is just as one-sided as the starry-eyed Utopian, only in the opposite direction. In this situation. the Christian faith ran give us a tremendous lift, and a sustaining power.” Dr. Gezork also warns that the light of personal freedom must never become the darkness of moral anarchy. “Whenever a person does no longer acknowledge great im-; peratives and principles by which to older his life, he soon will fall under the greatest tyranny j ever known, that of the whim 1 of the passing moment. Here | again the Christian faith will render us great help in the moral crisis through which most of us have to pass, for it offers us the great imperatives of purity, self-discipline and faithfulness. More Florence Nightingales “What the world needs is men and women like Florence Nightingale and Albert Schweitzer who, seeing the need, do their share, big or small, in relieving it" Scott FitzRandolph, junior class president, will lead the responsive reading during the services. The lesson will be read by Joanne Miner, a SC student. Nancy Weaver will sing “Draw Near To Me" as the featured solo. Members of Tau Kappa Epsilon Fraternity will serve as ushers. Camera Bugs To Compete In Contest Photography enthusiasts and camera bugs of SC have a chance to win awards and prizes in a photo contest open exclusively to college students sponsored by the photo-journalism fraternity of the University of Missouri, Kappa Alpha Mu.

Trojan Chest Drive Needs 9 Chairmen Petitions for nine chairmanships on Trojan Chest, SC's only fund-raising drive which collects money for various charitable causes, will be available today, Monday and Tuesday in 215 SU, according to Bruce Blinn, Trojan Chest Drive chairman. The nine committee chairman positions available are organizational. fraternity, sorority, classroom and University College collections; Mr. Trojanality contest; pie-throwing contest; special projects and publicity committees. $5000 Goal One week each spring is set apart for the Trojan Chest Drive, which raised about $330 last year and $4200 in 1956. Setting this year's goal at about $5000, the executive committee will decide upon the various allocations of funds to organizations and causes. Differing every j year, last year’s funds were received by Troy Camp, the SC ICC to Hold Valentine s Day Dance Dancing, entertainment and refreshments will begin this semester's activities for the In-tercultural Club when they present a Valentine Dance, tomor- 1 row at 7:30 in the Student Lounge. This dance, which is open to ! all students, is the first of many j programs that the Intercultural Club will have this semester to help foreign and American stu- : dents get better acquainted with each other and with the customs of various lands. Non members may obtain tickets at the door for 50 cents. “We plan to have a program, such as the one this Saturday night, about every two weeks,” said Jack Sub, president. “We also are planning several cultural get togethers this semester during which students may i show slides and movies of their native country. At these meet- ' mgs cultural ideas and opinions ! will l>e discussed.” he continued. Suh added that he felt that the Intercultural Club offers students "a wonderful opportunity to meet people of other countries and to become ac- ! quainted with their ideas.” The Intercultural Club is open to every one. Membership tick- | cts which will admit students to all events, may be obtained for $1.50 this week in the foreign students adviser's office, 322 SU or in 320 SU. camp for underpriviledged children; the YWCA; the ASSC Christmas Show for underpriviledged children; the Living War Memorial scholarship fund; the World and University Service organization and the remainder to the Red Cross and Community Chest. Leaders Get Pie Two of the highlights of the Trojan Chest Drive are the Mr. Trojanality contest to pick the man most representative of SC and the pie-throwing contest, in which leading campus personalities are the target of well-aimed pies, bid for by SC students. Last year, Herman Nathan, Ihe SC ice-cream man, walked away with the title. Scheduled for this year’s pie-throwing fracas are such student leaders as Larry Sipes, ASSC president; Starla Coffee, ASSC vice president; Stan Arkin, Independent Men’s representative; Larry Knudsen, senior class president; Jerry Burns, Daily Trojan editor-in-chief and Patty Wynn, senator-at-large. Mature Campaign “The approach to Trojan Chest lor 1958 will be a more mature campaign, emphasizing • our need to support these outstanding university activities and causes,” said Bruce Blinn, | drive chairman. Other innovations include having fraternity and sorority collections under separate chairmen. There will be one representative from each house on the two committees. This is being done to strive for a more personal contact with the Row-ites. Under special projects, Blinn announced the idea of buttons or stickers sold by the committee and stamps similar to Christmas seals. Honor Croup Gives Grants The Marea Goddard Scholar-' ship — providing $50 — will be awarded to two students once a year, it was recently announced by Alpha Mu Gamma, national foreign language honor society. Interested students can obtain application forms from Dr. Isabella Yen, 405 FH. The scholarship may be applied toward tuition for the fall semester of 1958. All transcripts and completed forms must be returned by Sat-urdav. Coed Has Car Stolen ASSC Secretary Joan Sparling was unable to read the minutes of last week’s meeting to the senate because her minutes, car, clothes and typewriter were stolen last Monday afternoon. The 1955 turquoise and white Chevrolet which she had received for Christmas was missing from the dental hygene parking lot when she left Monday classes. She was in the process of moving from home to the Delta Gamma sorority house and most of her belongings were in the car. “All I have left is my uniforms," said the dental hvgene major. “The sweater I have on is borrowed from my roommate.” Miss Sparling said she was very concerned about the loss of her shoes which were in the car at the time of the theft. The license number of the ear is AZA 441. She doubted that it was a student who removed the car from the lot but she wishes whoever d i d would “bring it back.” Service Groups To Collect Used Books For Asia GRANER PROTESTS 12 Nations By-Law Amendment To Profit by Said Unconstitutional Senate Plan Big Building For Machine Finished Soon The building which will house the giant linear accelerater located at 36th PI. and Hoover St. will be completed in about 60 days, according to Dr. Gchard L. Weissler, professor of physics. When the building is completed, the physics department will begin moving in equipment to operate the accelerator. Control and electrical equipment necessary to operate the giant machine for nuclear research will take a year to install. Dr. Weissler said. Thus, it will be in operation by spring of 1959. The linear accelerator was donated to SC in June, 1957 by the Atomic Energy Commission to aid basic research in nuclear physics. The cost of the project is $2 million. “We plan to set up an en-larged program of graduate study in nuclear physics,’ Dr. John R. Holmes, head of the physics department, said. “The machine will be u.-ed by doctoral candidates working on their theses.” Negotiations with the AFC to obtain the accelerator took two years and ended with the securing of the grant on June 28, 1957. Dr. Weissler is the chief vestigator on the project. Wallv Graner, president of the School of Commerce, yesterday charged that Section 7 of Walt Williams’ by-law amendment providing for the organization of political parties was unconstitutional. Section 7 requires that students not receiving party support would have to submit a petition containing eight percent of the previous spring electorate. Graner maintains that this should not be a by-law to the ASSC constitution, but a constitutional amendment. Student eligibility for office is clearly defined in the constitution and this section overrides the constitution. Graner said. He added that the section sounds more like a “rider” than anything else. More Difficult Running for a student office would become increasingly difficult, Graner said. "I fail to see how making it more difficult for students to run for office will increase the quality of leadership, student spirit or competition in student politics as those favoring the motion said.” This system would make it practically impossible for an independent student to run for an office without organized backing, according to Graner. Not only would it hinder the student from being elected to an office, it would limit the right of a student to run for an office. “Any legislation which would limit the rights of an individual student should be submitted to the students at an election and not attached as an afterthought to a regular Senate motion," Graner said. “I am not against the by-law amendment per se,” he said," but I think this motion shoud be submitted to a committee. I think something this important needs more than the work of two minds in the attempt to get something passed in a quickie action before the next election." Sincere Motion Graner said he did not think there was any ulterior motive in the presentation of this motion because “anything so inadequate would have to be sincere." He also pointed out that the State of California only requires 3 per cent of the previous vote for a party to be recognized. Under the proposal by Williams, 15 per cent would be required. This plan for the improvement of student government is in reality an outline to be followed for the organization of political parties by the students. Graner said he saw no connection whatsoever between a plan for organizing political parties and a plan for acquiring more qualified, or more inspired student leadership. Concluding. Graner said that more consideration should be given to any proposal which would limit student freedom. “Legislation for the sake of legislation is for the birds.” Hy .101)1 \ \TTIMO More than 2.000 books for Asian students will be sought by five service groups under an ASSC Senate resolution.

The Asia Foundation, a non-political organization founded by private American citizens, has been incorporated in the state of California. They screen the books and send them to colleq:e-age persons and college instructors throughout Asia. Rooks for Japan In 1954 this project was held by Alpha Phi Omega, men’s service fraternity, and 700 books were collected. These books were sent to Japan. The book^ can be specified for any country if SC students have a specific preference. If not. thev will he sent to the country that the Asia Foundation deems most in need of the book selections. “Most SC students have books now which have been revised or discarded for a new text." said Miss Wynn, “and as the.v will get little or nothing for them at the bookstores, this is an excellent destination for the books." All Types Needed According to Miss Wynn, the types of books most needed are especiallv General Studies 100a and 100b. 204a and 204b and English books. However, every type of book is wanted and will definitely be used by the Asia Foundation. Any books which are donated will be accepted-“This is a wonderful opportunity for SC students to do their share in combatting communistic propaganda in Asian countries.” Miss Wynn commented. “If these books are made available, the students and scholars can read the truth for themselves." National Donations University and college campus groups and organizations all over the United States have contributed donations.

Henley Creates Big Splash in Moscow Ry LEONA GOLDSTEIN Moscow parties are all wet, according to a description by David C. Henley, former Daily Trojan city editor, who recently returned from a five-month tour of Europe and the Middle East. A guest at a special reception of the Burmese Embassy, attended by such Kremlin figures as Premier Bulganin, Henley accidentally hit the arm of a wait-! er, sending a tray of 15 champagne glasses clattering to the I floor. Drenches Ambassador "The East German ambassador was drenched," Henley told Daily Trojan reporters during an informal talk on his experiences abroad. An Associated Press correspondent, also at the party, attempted to write up an account of the incident for U.S. newspapers. The story — headlined i "Big Splash in Moscow” — was censored, Henley started his trip last Sept. 15. covering 21 countries and stopping at between 30 and 40 locations. He wrote accounts of his travels for the R i d d e r newspaper chain and sent copies of the stories to the Daily Trojan for publication as feature material. Among the European countries he visited were Scotland, England, Italy and Ireland. In the Middle East Henley covered Egypt, Israel, Cyprus and Turkey. One of the high points of his trip was the NATO Conference. which he attended on Dec. 16 in Paris. Two more countries on Henley's itinerary were Finland and Iceland. Regarding the stereotyped Eskimo, he explained that "they don't live in igloos." Blast-i ing traditional ideas about Ice- land's parka-wrapped popula- i tion, he said the Eskimos "live in shacks and wear blue jeans."’ Followed Ry Russians During his stay in Moscow, Henley, like all foreigners, was followed day and night and his hotel room was wired. Chief of ' his impressions of the Soviet capital was the fact that the common people won't talk. “The man on the street will not talk to a foreigner unless he is alone,” he explained, “for everyone is desperately afraid | of being betrayed.” In such informal discussions opinions are voiced on the weather, rather j than political or economic matters. A vigorously efficient form of censorship — the razor blade prevents the publication of news stories in their original text. The two major newspapers, "Pravda” and “Izvestia,” are t "all lies," according to Henley. Radio broadcasts are almost completely jammed. “The Voice of America and other Radio Free Europe programs cannot possibly lx* heard by the average person." he said. “It is sometimes possible, however, to hear such programs on very powerful radios during the early hours of the morning.” Old Arthur Godfrey songs seem to be the most popular radio fare, he added. Russians Don’t Argue Henley' found another “impossibility” in talking to the Russians. “You just can’t argue with them about any thing—free press, free speech, freedom of religion included.” He spoke to several Moscow University students about the I Hungarian revolt, and reported that none of them had ever heard of it. “They even accused i me of lying,” he related. There are 14 American journalists in Russia, including representatives of the United Press, Associated Press and International News Service, and several magazines and newspapers. Of these 14. only three speak Russian. Of the 14 other correspondents representing other European counrties, all speak Russian. “It isn't really necessary to speak Russian, however,” Henley said, “as all visitors have interpreters and English is considered the ‘second’ language.” The ex-Daily Trojan editor met many students in Moscow. He was impressed with the "constant fear" evidenced by all of them and their reluctance to discuss debatable questions. Almost all of the students speak English. Henley cited “an excellent subway system and good bus transportation" as "the best things in Moscow." Public transportation is of such a high caliber for one purpose only to get the people to work on time. Many Stalin Pietiires In spite of a recent reversal of Soviet tactics, pictures of Stalin are still seen in abundance, especially in the subway stations. Public commuting facilities are good, but private automobiles are almost nonexistent. Henley said that in the entire country there are not more than a quarter of a million cars. Of the five brands of autos, the most prominent is the Ziss, which he said, resembles a 1949 Packard. “Black seems to be the most j popular car color,” he continued, j Asian Groups Asia receiving the uch organizations as •ological College in Chulalongkorn University in Thailand; the Ministry of Cultural Affairs in Saigon and Radio Sarawak, Kuching, in Sarawak. Staff Meet Announced All Daily Trojan reporters, copy readers and editors both old and new MUST attend an important staff meeting Monday noon in the city room, .'’.'cording to Editor Jerry Burns. Burns said that all the work for this semester will be outlined at tht n tnd attendance will be taken. Final heats, reporting and copyread-ing days will be assigned. Expected work w ex- plained to new staff members, while old staff members will hear changes which will he instigated this semester. A reporter of the week will also he announced and the best stories of the first week will posted.
