He spoke with them in Russian. One conversation was with a Polish high official in the Communist Party who was very disillusioned with the Polish people and even more with the Russians, he said. The high official was critical tif Marxism and the Communist Party and claimed that politics was a “dirty business.” Quotes Article The official quoted a Russian magazine article as reporting “If you want to keep your heart pure, keep away from politics,” Dr. Ziferstein said. On several occasions, he said, Prussian students actually argued among themselves about present political situations between the Soviet Union and the United States. One student commented that the Russian government was no longer interested in negotiations with the United States and that it was just stalling, the USC psychologist said. Welfare of Group He also noted that the general belief of Russian pecple today is fcr the wellare of the group. They believe that only as the group prospers can the individual prosper.

Tunisia Sounds Death Knell/ Expert Warns Tunisians, long considered the “women'' of North Africa, became men w hen they were “baptized in a bath of blood,” a USC professor in Middle Eastern affairs declared recently. Dr. Willard A. Beiing, speaking to an assemby of international relations majors, reported that the combat against the French was the death knell of the Tunisians’ attempt to compromise and to avoid a physical struggle. “It is evident that Tunisian President Bourguiba improved relations with the Afro-Asian bloc w'hen he declared, ‘I can no longer be a crutch of De Gaulle',” Dr. Beiing claimed. Tragic Events Dr. Beiing described the events and the international implications of the French-Tunisian crisis in North Africa as “tragic.” He was in Tunisia at the height of the controversy. Tunisia, a former French protectorate, proclaimed its independence in 1957. At that time the Tunisians demanded the withdrawal of all French troops. Later that year France agreed to relinquish ail military installations except the air and naval base at Bizerte. There was no treaty which governed the French occupation of Bizerte, Dr. Beiing said. After Tunisia attained her independence, the controversy was held at a standstill. Negotiation Hope “On July 5, 1B61, President Bourguiba. in a personal letter to Gen. de Gaulle, asked him to recognize the evacuation at Bizerte. De Gaulle responded, and First Lecture In Fall Series To Be Given The first in a series of six lectures on “Philosophy and Literature,” title of this fall's Philosophy Forum, will be presented today at 4:15 in Bowue Hall, Mudd Memorial Hall of Philosophy. Today’s lecture, “The Relationship Between Philosophy and Literature,” will inaugurate the 63rd semiannual Philosophy Forum. Dr. Louis Z. Hammer, instructor in philosophy and coordinator of the forum, will present the lecture. Dealing with the philosophical content of literature and the literary value of some philosophical works, this fall’s forum will also offer conclusions as to the extent of the philosopher’s concerns as related to those of the novelist, the poet or the dramatist. “The series will feature study of a variety of writers and literary forms from the classical to the contemporary period,” Dr. Hammer reported. Other lectures scheduled for October include “The Literary Form of a Platonic Dialogue” by Dr. William O’Neill, assistant professor of philosophy; “The Literary Rebel” by Dr. Kingsley Widmer, assistant professor of English at San Diego State College; and “Ernest Hemingway and Tragedy” by Dr. Kennett Moritz, assistant pro-fe-sor of English. Cabinet Meet Will Focus on Parking Rules The USC foreign student pro-g r a m and problems raised by the university’s new parking regulations will be among the topics to be raised by the Executive Cabinet tonight at 7 in the Senate Chambers. 301 SU. ASSC President Hugh Helm said that the bulk of the meeting would be concerned with specific problems relating to student and university areas. “We rarely have time to spend a whole evening discussing these areas because of the heavy Senate legislation we must consider,’’ Helm said. “We hope to get a good deal of work done on these important problems.” Committee Reports Reports from committees on student affairs, student activities and student services will also be considered by the cabinet members. Many of the committees will be submitting their first proposals of activities for the coming year at the meeting. Among the committees to give plans will be the Homecoming, orientation, foreign students rally, Troy Camp, Troy Chest, Christmas and greater university groups. New Plans New plans for the annual stu-d e n t leader etreat, scheduled for this Saturday, will be presented by ASSC Vice President Sue McBurney. The student leaders were originally prepared to go to Camp Hess Kramer in Malibu for the one - day student - faculty - administration conference, but were informed last week that reservations were not available. Problem Area A realistic discussion of student problem areas and how the leaders can try to correct them has been proposed as the theme of the conference. Specific areas scheduled for discussion are improvement of communication between the ASSC and ihe students, development of a car pool system for commuters, integration of new students into campus life and financial programs for the classes. 4 i 4 WHAT-DO-YOU-KNOW - Mary Ellen Wynhavsen, El Rodeo assistant editor, holds the much delayed year, or so, book in full view to show all disbelievers that there really is one. The tardy El Rod will make its official debut today. Students will be able to pick up their copies at the In-formation office between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Long-Awaited El Rod Will Be Ready Today By JERRY LABINGER The 1961 El Rodeo (heretofore only a figment of the imagination) at long last will be available today, according to Tim Reilly Jr., manager of student publications. Reilly, who swears on one of Abies Irish roses that the El Rod is now .available, said that the annual can be obtained at the University Information Office between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. He said that other distribution times will be announced in later issues of the Daily Trojan. “Activity book coupons must be presented before picking up the El Roa,” Reilly warned. “The coupons sure good only until Oct. 31.” El Rodeo Sale Non-activity book holders may purchase the El Rodeo after Nov. 1 for $7.50, Reilly said. Publication of this year’s El Rodeo has been a study in frustration. There have been so many delays that students have been laying 5-1 odds against it ever appearing this year, while other vindictive students have been clamoring for the name to be changed to “year-and-a-half book.” The 480-page book was originally scheduled for delivery on June 20, and it was subsequently rescheduled for July 1, July 23, Aug. 1. Aug. 20, Sept. 1, Sept. 15 and Sept. 31. Deadline Today But Reilly, vv h o actually claims to have seen what he says is a 1961 El Rodeo, said the annual would definitely be available to meet today’s deadline. Failure to observe copy and photo deadlines has been unofficially cited for the many delays by persons close to the operation who wish to remain anonymous (for obvious reasons). One insider came up with a unique explanation proving the book really wasn't late at all. “We had only eight months instead of twelve to publish the book because the original editor graduated,” the observer said. “Therefore, we're right on time.” See? cations.

In a unanimous vote, the elections board decided that the protest registered against Miss Hensley’s campaign caravan in frcnt of the P. E. --—--- building last week was ground- j less. Shortly after the meeting, j Elections Commissioner Sallie i Allison announced that the vice presidential runoff election will i be between Miss Hensley and Judi Benson. Miss Hensley received 165 votes in the preliminaries and Miss Benson received 83, Miss Allison reported. Of the remaining votes. Virginia Adams gathered 82; Kris Nolan received 81, Judy Taylor had 61 and Marty Chiavario gathered 28. Eighteen votes were invalidated. Runoff Candidates Freshmen Brook Trout and Howard Miller were listed as the runoff candidates for class president last week. Dean of Students Robert J. Downey, chairman of the Board of Inquiry, said that the charges against Miss Hensley were dismissed because they did not cover any area listed as a violation in the Elections Code. “The complaint was registered against the location and number of cars in the caravan, but the code makes no prohibitions on these areas,” Dean Downey explained. The section of the code violated by Miss Hensley was a paragraph on procedures which requires candidates to have all campaign materials and activities approved in writing by the Elections Committee, he continued. Complaint Registred “If the complaint has said that the candidate had failed to file a petition for this activity, the beard might have taken some action,” Dean Downey said. “As it was, the board found that the areas protested vvere not in violation of election procedures.” ASSC President Hugh Helm, also a member of the Board of Inquiry, said that a new protest against Miss Hensley could be filed if the grounds were changed, since she was not eliminated in the preliminaries. He added, however, that the board had already fined Miss Hensley for the infraction and new charge would have to be quite serious for the board to take action on it. A total of eight candidates were fined by the board for infractions of election rules. The candidates were charged $6 for each infraction. Violations Listed Miss Hensley topped the list with a total of four violations for $24. Other candidates and fines were Brook Troup, $6; Howard Miller, $12; Virginia Adams, $12; Don Benjamin. $12; I Judy Taylor, $12; Kris Nolan, j S12; and Marty Chiavario, S12. j The majority of the fines were j for illegal placement of cam-paign materials and late regis- j tration of budgets. Commissioner Allison said that the fines must be paid to Finance Committee Chairman Don Gamble by Nov. 1. The final runoff election will take place tomorrow in Alumni Memorial Park, in front of Doheny Library, between 9 a. m. and 4 p.m. Miss Allison cautioned candidates to bring their photo ID cards as identification, since no other identifications will be accepted. Election Results Results of the election will be revealed tomorrow night at 8 in the Senate Chambers following an official count of the ballots, she said. A total of 518 persons voted in the two-day preliminary elections and slightly less are expected to vote in the finals. ASSC President Helm said that he was “very satisfied" with the action taken by the inquiry board. Deadline Near For Entering Homecoming Deadlines for four competitive Homecoming events — Troyland Jubilee. Trolios, house decorations and the Helen of Troy queen contest — will ce this Friday, Homecoming Chairman Dave Patterson reported yesterday. Applications for these four events must be returned to the special events office, 232 SU, with the entrance fee enclosed, Patterson said. The newest Homecoming event, added to the week-long festivities last year, is house decorations. Both dorms and sorority and fraternity houses have called for a revival of this competition since it was dropped three years ago. Prizes for Decorations The decorations will be finished by the morning of Nov. 9 and will be left up through the open house following the USC-Stanford game on Nov. 11. Prizes for the winning decorations will be presented at Troyland Jubilee by contest cochairmen Wendy Bishonden and Jim Preston. For the second year. Trcy-Iand Jubilee will be held in Shrine Exposition Hall. The carnival has been expanded this year to include use of the main floor, balcony and basement. Booths may be entered by professional, honorary or social fraternities, dorms, service groups or departmental organizations. Bob Frinier and Chuck Sutton are co-chairmen of the jubilee, which will be held Nov. 10 from 7:30 p.m to 1 a.m. Fraternal Organizations Entrance in Trolios, a vaudeville-type event to be held Nov. 8, is open to all fraternal organizations and also dorms and service groups. The evening of skits and musicals will be climaxed by the crowning of Helen of Troy and her attendants. Gene Mikov is in charge of Trolios. John Carney and Bill Heeres are co-chairmen of the queen contest. Helen of Troy applications from women sponsored by dorms or sororities, as well as those from coeds running independently. must also be received in the special events office by Friday. Creek Ciory Infused Poet, Baxter Says Rupert Brooke, a young poet who died in World War I, was the last follower of the great tradition that began with the ancient Greeks, Dr. Frank Baxter. English professor emeritus, said yesterday. Dr. Baxter, speaking at the first English Noon Reading of the semester, told more than 200 students that Brooke was a Gcd of Idolatry, a golden boy during the days following the war. The poet was a brillant conversationalist, Dr. Baxter said. The great writers of his period even thought that he was a genius. When, in 1915, he died of a fever in the Mediterranean area at the age of 28, he took with him a certain kind of era of English poetry, he commented. Dr. Baxter read nine of the poet's poems, two of which were war sonnets, “Peace'* and “The Soldier.”
