Moley. who is presently on a nation-wide speaking tour for the Republican Party, explained that one of the common delusions about politics is that elections are determined by issues. Few Who Know “Issues are intriguing to those who understand them, but the average voter doesn't,’’ Moley said. He poinled out studies which have shown that 75 per rent of the success in politics depends upon an organized effort to get out the party vote. “Activation is the essential thine." he said. “The party should not waste its time arguing with the opposition but should activate the complacent hut potentially sympathetic voter.” Moley criticized political speeches, explaining that only about two per cent of the voters I are ever influenced by them. Not Deceived “A speech can lose an election. but it cannot win one.” Moley said. “The American people are not deceived by-speeches anymore — they just wonder who wrote them.” In a comparison between Rrit-ish and American oolitical techniques Moley told how England’s defeated Conservative Party reorganized itself to finally return as the majority party. "The Republican Party is destined to be a minority party if it thinks that all that is needed for victory is fine words.” warned Moley in his plea for party organization. English Pattern He explained how CIO leader Walter Reuther carefully studied nolilieal organization in England and patterned the hiehlv successful strategv of the AFL-CIO* ’Democratically oriented" , Commitiee on Political Organization after it. "If America is to lv> provided wilh an essential two-party svs-iem. thr Republican Party must reorganize oc the English Con-se'-vativec did.” he said. He added that the GOP is makine some effort to reorganize because of the “hard circumstance” which it faces. Week-Long Party Moley suggested that a week-lone oarty conference be held annually in order to formulate a statement of party philosophy, which would be part of party organisation. When Questioned about his controversial reversal in oartv ’ovalties which occurred during Roosevelt’s administration. Moley answered that the switch was . made because he felt that the Democratic Party had changed “from a classless party to a captivated one." Aero Medical Sessions End Members of the faculty of the aviation safety division of University College are currently participating in the 30th annual convention of the Aero Medical Association, which closes its three day meeting today at the Stat lei-Hilton Hotel. Dr. Charles I. Brown, who teaches aviation psychology and is medical director of Lockheed Aircraft Corp.. is acting as general chairman of the convention.

Probation, Ban On All Sports Remains in Effect By GARRY SHORT Daily Trojan Sports Editor The National Collegiate Athletic Association, czar of college athletics in the U.S., yesterday vetoed SC’s appeal to lessen a two-year penalty for alleged recruitment infractions. In a telegram received by President Topping at 5 p.m., the NCAA council said that “after careful review of the information submitted in written form and also orally by Carl Franklin (faculty athletic representative), the council has concluded that the penalties enacted Jan. 7, 1959, should not be modified.” Considerable hope had been voiced by two high-ranking-sc officials. New evidence “completely cleared” SC of any guilt in the two recruiting cases, they said. Only Sought Partial Reduction In their plea, however, Trojan officials did not ask for complete acquittal, but oniy for a partial reductions in the penalties. The NCAA yesterday nixed everything, however. Under the ruling, SC’s athletic teams are on probation for two years and also ineligible to compete for NCAA intercollegiate championships until Jan. 7, 1960. This deprives the baseball and track teams of their right to defend national crowns. In addition, the football team will be ousted from the Rose Bowl should it qualify. And with a hard core of good sophomores and juniors, the Trojans were expected to be right in the race after two years of doldrums. President Topping said the message from the NCAA was received with a “a deep sense of disappointment.” Brief Indicated Some Amelioration “We felt that our brief and the oral presentation by Carl Franklin, the chairman of our Faculty Committee on Athletics, indicated that some amelioration of the severe penalties would result,” he said. “It is obvious that the NCAA council did not agree. The action bv the NCAA closes our avenues of appeal.” Dr. Topping said th§ message he received said the NCAA council gave “careful review” of information submitted in written form and a.lso orally. He said the wire declared: “The council has concluded the penalties enacted Jan. 7, 1959, should not be modified. “The council has noticed the reforms instituted by you and your associates and believe they will do much to prevent reoccurences of the type of violations which antedated your presidency of the university.” Telegrams Didn’t Tell Why The wire was signed by H. J. Dorricott. president of the NCAA. No indication was given by NCAA telling specifically why the plea was turned down, however. Besides the two-year probationary period and the one-vear ban on all Troian sports, the NCAA also ruled in its January edict that the athletic teams will not be eligible to participate in television programs subject to NCAA control, nor be allowed to make any commitments for such appearances before full NCAA membership is restored. The NCAA warned that any further violation of NCAA requirements during the probationary period will be considered cause for expulsion from the association. Although it has never been made public, it is generally believed that the alleged recruiting violations centered around two Pennsylvania athletes. SC Violated NCAA Bylaws When the NCAA lowered the axe, it said that SC violated NCAA bylaws when Trojan representatives offered, and the university subsequently provided, one athlete with air transportation to Los Angeles during the summer of 1957 for the purpose of enrolling in a junior college. The committee charged that SC recruited the athlete for the junior college in order to improve his academic record and to assure his admission to SC. The council also charged SC with offering another athlete paid transportation to Los Angeles in the fall of 1957 for the purpose of enrolling at Troy.

By SUSAN LECKY The musical director of “Archy and Mehitabel” is a young man who has been working in the musical field since he was 2-years old. Fred Myrow. 19-year old junior in composition, has been spending all his free time lately w’orking out the many aspects of the modern jazz program which will open in Stop Gap Theater on Friday at 8:30 p.m. Myrow, who learned to play the piano at 2 and composed his first piece of music at 6, finds his work in jazz to be quite different from the type of music he is used to playing. Basically Cla*«ic "I am basically a classical musician and intend to make it my career. However, jazz, being my national folk music, has an inescapble influence on my music. I love jazz — good jazz,” he said. Myrow, who had a composition. "Palm Canyon,” published when he was 9-years old, said that ’Archy and Mehitabel’ is an unpretentions and skillful work that promises to be a marvelous evening’s entertainment. In both the musical and visual approach to the entire show we are aiming at a high stylization, a minimum of wasted words anti a maximum of good music.” The first half of the program will be different and original jazz selections, both instrumental and vocal. This section of the evening will be narrated by Buddy Famon. The instrumental part will feature Myrow at tb* tr*nr,. Rubin Leon on the saxophone and flute. Steve La Fever on the bass and Jerry Levine on drums. The vocalists will be Nina Shaw and Marilyn Ka+es. The first half of the program will culminate with selections from Gershwin's “Porgv and Bess.” which will be sung by French Tickner and Diana Smith of the opera denartment. Both appeared in “Falstaff” here recently. Poetic Cockroach “Archv and Mehitabel'' centers around the back alley existence nf a poetically inspired cockroach. Archy. and an in-corrigiblev corrupt but ultimat-ly lovable cat. Mehitabel. Myrow' said. “Their adventures are presided over by a casual newspaper man. the Narrator! who discusses the action of the opera. He is simialr to the narrator in Thronton Wiider's ‘Our Town,’ he said. The cast includes Joan Tewkesbury as the cat. Mehitabel. Dick Anderson and Dave Ackles will alternate as the cockroach. Archy, and the lightening bug. Ed Mas tin is the Narrator and Dick Burroughs is Bill, a cat, who has had an affair with Mehitabel.
