C. in the University Service Campaign,” so announced Gross Alexander, manager of the campaign, yesterday. “1 am gratified with the response that the University students have made to this worthy cause. It was surprising and pleasing to note with what enthusiasm the prep school boys and girls gave their 'sissizeni,’ ” continued Alexander. “Eight hundred dollars cash has already been turned in to the treasurer, Frank P. Foote. The remainder, which is in pledges, should be paid as soon as possible at the treasurer’s office, not later than May first. The most intensive campaign was waged at the College of Liberal Arts, where the subscriptions were greatest. Contributions were received from all the affiliated colleges also. At the close of the contest, Wednesday, between the different booths, il was found that the African booth led with subscriptions amounting to $550.00. The Japanese followed as a close second with $500.00. The Mexican and Chinese booths practically fied. In charge of the winning booth were Elizabeth Engle and Paul Doescher.

SPANISH INSTRUCTOR TO USE OLD ABODE Famous Lopez Homestead at San Gabriel Will Be Used by Miss Lopez r TROIANS STAND GOOD CHANCE OF GRABBING FIRST IT. S. C. will be represented by numerous entries in the final Southern California track meet of the season which will be held tomorrow at Pomona College, Claremont. Dopesters have it that U. S. C. will make an excellent showing. The meet is of special importance in view of the facts that it will reveal the Olympian game possibilities. A number of stars who have never appeared before at the same meet will compete against each other. As the Pomona track is one of the best on the coast, there is considerable speculation as to the probability of Paddock breaking his record of 9 % in the 100-yard dash. Among the men who are expected to appear and the events in which they are expected to score are: Sprints, Paddock, IJ. S. C.; George Schiller, U. S. C.; Isenhouer, U. S. C.; W. Young, Redlands; Hawkins, Fullerton High; Allen, Redlands nigh. 440—Schiller, U. S. C.; Colon Kilby, Redlands; Clarke, L. A. High. Half mile—Gwyn Wilson, U. S. C. Mile—Noel George, U. S. C.; Miller, U. S. C.; Sawyer, Redlands, Scovel, Manual; Garner, San Bernardino. Hurdles—Chesnut, U. S. C.; Bill Yount, Redlands. Weight events— “Swede” Evans, U. S. C.; Widdess, Pomona; Hauser, Oxnard High; Pitts, San Bernardino. High jump-— Corey, Chaffey Union High school. Pole vault—Goodenough, Fillmore High school. WILL BE SPANISH CENTER Miss Lopez Widely Known Spanish Teacher. Has Had Overseas Service Once again will the festive laughter of young people be heard in the famous Lopez homestead at San Gabriel, dating back to the mission days, for Miss Maria Guadalupe l^opez, one of the last members of the old Spanish family, will use the old adobe mansion in her work as instructor of Spanish in the University of Southern California. The Spanish club, La Tertulia, will hold its social affairs in the old hacienda, with programs in Spanish and with Spanish refreshments. Has Had War Service Miss Lopez, who has been widely known for several years as a successful and inspiring teacher of Spanish, won additional honors during the war, serving in France. On her return to tiiis country she took a position with the Julia Richmond high school in New York City and also occupied the position of instructor in Columbia university of New York. She will resign these highly lucrative positions to return to Los Angeles, and has been appointed a member of the faculty of the Spanish department of the University of Southern California. Will Go to Spain In addition to her work in the university classrooms, Miss Lopez will open the home where she was born as a Spanish center for tlie department, where the life of the long ago will again come into being and the university studeuts will not only gain the proper accent but wilJ be privileged (Continued on I'uge !<) BATTLE THIS MONTH Representatives to Be Chosen for Matches With Pomona and Redlands Elimination contests will be staged soon to determine who U. S. C.’s representatives will be in the boxing matches with Pomona and Redlands some lime this month. Jimmie Woodward says the exhibition may be at the L. A. A. C., although arrangements have not been definitely made with the proper officials. "Amateur rulings will govern this contest,” says Woodward. * ‘‘When we were up north, several exceptions were allowed in the rulings. Instead of six or eight-ounce gloves we had to use twelve-ounce ones. Several of our opponents could not make the required weight and therefore the regulation rule was discarded and those who were three pounds overweight were allowed in the contests. “The elimination contests will be in the U. S. C. gym. if any new men join our ranks they will thus be given an opportunity to get into the limelight immediately. “Next year we are going to have our boxing classes organized during the first few weeks of school. We expect to have fistic encounters with ail the universities of Southern California, and we will undoubtedly meet Stanford and University of (’alifornia My organizing early in the year, we expect to arouse much interest among t he students.”
