A. A. C. gym. the Trojan basketball varsity plays Its last game of the jeason with the Pomona Sagehens. Twice the Sagehens have (alien, the second time by the narrowest of margin?. but they confidently look forward to victory over the Cardinal and Gold in their third and final match. U S. C. has won the series, to be sure, but Pomona will take the final trick, say the supporters of the Blue and White, and their team Is ready to back up any statements of the student body out at Claremont. ( However, It has been the experience of many confident teams, both in football and basketball, that U. S. C. is easier to defeat on paper than on the field of battle. University students are MB8EK IN MILE RELAY Cardinal and Gold Cop First Place in Annual Carnival Held in Pasadena POLE VAULT IS EXCITING Paddock, Isenhouer and Schiller Get Three Places in Century; Isenhouer Pulls Tendon By Charles W. Paddock Before the largest pre-season track crowd ever gathered together in Southern California, the A. A. U. Relay Carnival outdid itself and outshone all past carnivals in the number of heroes displayed, and in point of interest pnd excitement. Though there were dull moments occasioned by the length of certain races and the slowness of certain unknown competitors, the meet, taken as a whole, was unbeatable. The results, if tabulated, would amount to something like this: The University of Southern California first, with a total of 25 points; Lincoln High School second, with 18 digits; Occidental and Compton tied with 15 points apiece; Redlands High, 13; Pomona College, 12; Santa Monica, 11; Hollywood, 10; Redlands University, 8; Lob Angeles High School, 6; L. A. A. C. and Pasadena High, 5 points, and the rest of the entries struggling along with 1 to 3 points, for their day's competition. The cup winners were U. S. C., Lincoln, Redlands and Compton, these four teams winning their respective class battles. U. S. C. Breaks Record Those races counted upon to furnish the thrills were for the moBt part rather tame affairs, with the exception of the eight-man open mile, which found the University of Southern California finishing thirty yards to the good, in world's record time, 3 min. and 6 Bee., whereas, the old record waB 3 min. 7 1-5 sec. While on the other hand, some of the contestants, which were not expected to display much excitement, produced the thrills of the day. One of these was the pole vault. Now, Mr. Uoodenough, of Occidental, was considered to have this event already Bewn up, whereas, a young high school demon, a wild little Irishman named Dennis, almost defeated the champ, while Dick Emmons of U. S. C., who "as never known to clear better than eleven feet, slipped over twelve, with apparent ease, but could not beat this height by another inch, and when the bar was lowered, after all three had failed, Mr. Emmons had to be contented with third honors, Dennis taking second, and Goodenough finishing first. Unexpected Happens Hie hundred yard dashes were wild and woolly exhibitions of local talent, Stapler, and Allen winning two of the high school races as predicted, but Blenkiron of Compton upsetting the established opinion by handily defeating Nash of Chino, mi the class three race This man Blenkiron, though lo,ig know’n to be a comer, has at last come, and should give the prep boys Plenty of trouble in the Southern California championships this year. In the °Pen loo, the much-heralded Stoddard, J*as forced to bite the dust of defeat n his heat, and though Occidental eactied the tinalB, they suffered the **tne humiliation of previous years, in ’r"iKing in the rear of the procession, uniehow, the Eagle Rock sprinters ‘ever have shown at their best ln the e>»y Carnivals of the pasl, and have ^ tendency to act as rear guard in the races. U. S. C. repeated tlie per- (Continued on page 4) ready to back their team up against any and all contentions from otlier college teams, and though they take basketball less seriously than football, the honor of the Cardinal and Gold is not to be lessened by a team which has twice been defeated in the same season. Gloomy Gus’ men have turned the trick two times—they will do so again. Friday night will prove it. Ten Games This Season The varsity has not been undefeated this season, but their schedule has called for ten games against some of the strongest teams in the state. Twice the L. A. A. C. five defeated them and Stanford turned the trick once. In all their other games the U. S. C. squad has come out on top. and they have acquired the title of champions of the Southern California college teams in the course of the season. Pomona tried hard to dispute this on last Tuesday, but With no success. They will try again Friday at the L. A. A. C. club, and their success then will be even less, in the confident expectation . of Trojan casaba fans. Pomona is good—no one denies that, but whereas Pomona students say their team is good enough to defeat U. S. C., the Cardinal and Gold rooters are prepared to deny the truth of tlieir statement, and will do so Friday night at the club. The Scores of the Seaton Following is a list of the games of the season, with the score of each match: U. S. C. 43, California Tech 24; U. S. C. 17, L. A. A. C. 28; U. S. C. 37, LaVerne College 31; IJ. S. C. 37, Pomona 21; U. S. C. 14. Stanford 39; U. S. C. 36, Whittier Crescents 33; U. S. C. 35, Alhambra Elks 20; U. S. C. 16, L. A. A. C. 33; U. S. C. 50, Occidental 14; U. S. C. 35, Pomona 34. Negotiations have been going on for a game with the Southern Branch of the University of California for a match, but difficulties have been met with and a game is very doubtful. The Southern Branch defeated Oxy by two points, so that the chances would be all for a Trojan victory in case a game is played. The probabilities are. however, that the match tomorrow is the last of the season, and every student who can possibly do so should be present. A good match is certain—U. S. C. with the Trojan fight, Pomona out for revenge—and an entertainment following the game with a good time certain for all who attend. “Pure” Kitten To Prance On Campus Monday Although Termed 99.44 Per Cent Pure, Its Purity Is Not Defined SIR W. T. GRENFELL BIG SOCIAL AFFAIR OF SPEAKS IN CHAPEL TOMORROW AT 11:40 YEAR ON MARCH 2ND Licking, its whiskers and grinning the sly grin of contented kitenhood, the Ivory Soap number of Wampus will prance merrily onto the campus next Monday, according to the word of P. V. G., guardian of Wampus’s destinies. "Ninety-nine and forty-four one hundredths per cent pure," is the slogan for this time, purrs papa Thomas Wampus. Just what said purity will include, and what is to come under the head of the other fifty-six-on^hun-dredths per cent remains to be seen, he continues, with a knowing wink. Art and Near Art Aside from the exterior decoration of an appropriate cover by Marion Vale, art kitten, the innards of the Kat will be graced by several other masterpieces from the hand of those artistically and otherwise inclined. Pertinent paragraphs concerning • the same, penned by the most rudite of Wampus’s colony of wild and clawing kittens will also be offered for the dele-tation of those who succeed in catching kitty between jumps. Jokes which have been revolving in Wampus's patented chetnut roasting machine are now judged old enough to see the light of day and will be distinguishable between growls and tail lashings of the rambunctious Pure But Primed All these, purrs Papa Thomas Wampus again, may be enjoyed by him who taketh his tw'o-bits in his hand and calleth lovingly, "Here Kitty, Kitty, Pretty Wampus,” next Monday. Remember, the Ivory Soap Number— PURE BUT PRIMED. Writer Has Devoted Life to the Improvement of Conditions in the Far North GREAT PHILANTHROPIST Is Responsible for Introduction of Modern Methods in Labrador and Newfoundland Sir Wilfred T. Grenfell, physician, writer and explorer, will spea1 in chapel on Friday, February 25, at 11:40. Dr. Grenfell graduated from Oxford with a doctor’s degree and expected to follow the footsteps of his father and grandfather, who were physicians to the king of KAgland. However, a short time after leaving college he attended one of Dwight Moody’s meetings in London. The appeal of living and working for those legs fortunate attracted him, and after looking over the world he decided that the most needy were the people of the New Foundland and labrador. SOPHS MEET IN CHAPEL ANNEX FRIDAY AT 12:35 Members of the sophomore class are requested to meet at 12:35, Friday, February 25, in the chapel annex. The class picture for El Rodeo will be taken after the meeting. STUDENT SENATE MEETS— IMPORTANT TO STUDENTS Important meeting of Student Senate today, February 24, at 12:35, chapel annev. Be sure and have a representative of your organization present at this time. •Print U.S.C. DEBATE TEAMS TO MEET POMONA AND OXY NEXT THURSDAY With both affirmative and negative teams chosen to represent U. S. C. In the triangle debates against Pomona and Occidental next Thursday evening at 8:00 p. m., the intensive work,of the squad Is assuming strenuous proportions under the management of Coach Claude Reeves. Although the debates have been considered as minor affairs in the past, defeats at the hands of those institutions have made it necessary to retrieve the honor of the school. Rivalry is certain to be keen, as Coach Reeves has instilled in every member the fighting spirit and earnestnss necessary to wiu. The stringency of the contest will assure a lively interest in the activity of "verbal battle." At U. S. C. the affirmative team will engage with Occidental. A strong trio represents the local institution in upholding the proposition Incorporated in the question, “Resolved that the United States should institute a re sponsible system of Cabinet Government.” Merle McGinnis, who has been han dling the debating negotiations with the opponent, is widely recognized about the campus as an orator and will deliver the fifteen-minute address. In the task of humbling Occidental another experienced speaker in the person of Richard Byrd, will vociferate persuasively. As this is his laBt opportunity to represent the school in this activity, Mr. Byrd, liaB formulated a powerfui plea for the change in American government. William Barber remembered for his successful participaucy ln the Bowen Cup contest, is the other member of the affirmative ’'speeches are to be twelve.'^jinutss in length with the exception of one fifteen minute argument. Rebuttal is to be for a period of five minuter At the same time the affirmative meets Occidental here the negative team will contest honors with the Bquad of Pomona in the balls of the enemy.

Classes will be dismissed at HU4&r and services in the chapel will follow immediately. WiUie Martin of the First Methodist Church of Hollywood will address the students and faculty. His sermon is announced as the “Coming Kingdom." The Day *>f Prayer for Colleges Is a national event and is observed in all tlie denominational colleges throughout America, lt has for its purpose the deepening of the religious life of the student. The day appears on the calendar as February 17 for this year, but It was necessarily deferred at U. S. C., on account of the late mid-year examinations. In addition to the chapel service, the day will be observed with a Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A. Union Vesper Service in the chapel at four o'clock in the afternoon, and with the regular Thursday evening devotional hour in the “Y” hut at seven. Dr. Hill, of the department of theology, will be in charge of the devotional hour. That students observe the Day of Prayer for Colleges by attending the services, is urged by Dr. Bovard. "Students and student organizations should make special efforts to attend the chapel services. The significance to the student of the Day of Prayer for Colleges is too well known to need any special emphasis at tills time,” said Dr. Bovard, in an Interview yesterday. In a message for the Day of Prayer THANKSGIVING DAY GAME WITH O. A. C. IS RUMOR Andrew Crowell, well known handsome star of the Oregon Aggies, was a visitor on the campus yesterday. Negotiations for a game with the Aggies have been repeatedly rumored, and inasmuch as sentiment favors the Thanksgiving date for the popular northern college, it seems not unlikely that the big game of next season will be with O. A. C. MANY GIRLS PLAN TO GO DUTCH TO BANQUET Fair damsels who are contemplating going without escort to the All-University Banquet, to be held at the Ambassador Hotel, March 2, will be provided with all the comforts of home, figuratively speaking Grace Cooper emphasizes tbe fact that many girls are ‘'slagging” to tbe event. “Place yourself in the boys' position," sayB Miss Cooper, "He may not have the money. Why not go dutch?" for Colleges, Bishop William Fraser McDowell says ln part: "We come again to the Day of Prayer for Colleges. The face of the world has hanged. Conventional religion is powerless. But fthe power of Christ remains and grows even as His need of youth veers down upon Him most heavily. He sees the Kingdom of heaven at hand and wantB new men to swing into it with Him. He longs to take the lead In making the mind and morals, the faith and life of the world. What happens in our colleges and universities this year will vitally affect him. • “Pray that the great note of courage, righteous, moral passion, and ChrlBt-like service may break out in all the church that calls 1th youth to follow Him. "Pray that all the men and wom^n in our institutions may now lay hold of Jesus theory and philosophy of life and its training, life and ItB development, life and its purposes, life and Its uses; that they may lay hold of Him for life and for service." John L. Seaton, former president of the College of the Pacific, says of the Day of Prayer for Colleges; “In this eventful year the call to prayer comes with unusual solemnity. Perils that menace society and its achievements are actively at work around the world. Where shall we look for the Christian leadership iu which alone safety anil progress may be found If not to the Colleges and Universities?" Y. W.

Ordinarily the banquet SMEARS OXY FIVE FRIDAY AT L.A.A.C. Sage Hens Defeated Tuesday by Trojan Basket Tossers in Last Second of Play 35-34 Trojan basket ball fanB have had their fill of activity in the past week watching the Cardinal and Gold quintet mess up two southern college teams. The flrst match took place Friday night at the L. A. A. C. gym, with Occidental Tigers as the victims. The score was 50 to 14, and everyone went home happy after the festivities. Overwhelming Leal The team which wont in at the start was composed of Boeck, Kuhns, Hinrichs, Graham and Axe. They pile<J up 24 polntB In tho first hulf while Oxy scored twice on free throws, being otherwise entirely Incapable of breaking through the Trojan defense at any time. In the second half Albert and Howard Butterfield went ln as forwards, Cassil substituted for Hinrichs. and Dutcher and Calland officiated as guards. They scored 22 to Oxy’s 11, and then the first string return*d for the finish, making two baskets, while the Tigers made a free throw. Strong Defense One of the most remarkable features of the game was the fact that the Eagle Rock team was unable to penetrate the defense of the varsity's guards at any stage of the game. Three points were made against the first team and all of them on free throws, the complete supremacy of the Cardinals and Gold being in evidence throughout. The Becond team scored double the number of points made by their opponents. The individual star of the game was Captain Hinrichs, the long U. S. C. center, who made 10 goals for a total of 20 points during the time he was in the game. Kuhns at forward also showed up strongly on attack and defense. Pomona Defeated Tuesday The Becond game In which Henderson's group of goal tossers proved their right to the title of college champions of Southern ('alifornia was the match Tuesday afternoon with Pomona on the latter's gym at Claremont. The game was hotly fought out between the two teams, with a strong finish in the last 45 seconds of play giving U. 8. C. the game, 35 to 34. Pomona started with a rush, and at the end of the first ten minutes of play was in the lead 14 to 5. Here the Trojans staged a come-back and at the close of the flrst half had tied the score —19 to 19. Pomona Again in l.e<ui The second half saw Pomona again drawing Into the lead, but with the Cardinal and Gold putting up a battle every minute of the play. Their style of play was har(Uy up to that shown in the Occldenftil game, but the all-around play made the game fast throughout. Kuhns at forward was the best man of either team, tossing goals during the game and shooting the final basket In the last few seconds, which gave the Trojans the game. With the score 31 to 34 favoring Pomona, and with but a minute to go, Hinrichs took the ball and shot a basket, and a few seconds later Kuhns made the final score of the day. Trojan Une-I'p Kuhns, Boeck, Hinrichs, Axe and Graham started for U. 8. C. In the second half Howard Butterfield went ln for Kuhns and Calland substituted for Graham. Kuhns was later sent in for Boeck, aud then Boeck replaced Butterfield There was only one shift at guard and none at center, Hinrichs playing tbe entire game. price at this hostelry Is much more than $3. An extraordinary program has been arranged hy Casey and Gwynn Wilson. Students w'ho attend may be sure that they will be well fed and well entertained. President Crawford to Speak President Crawford of the Allegheny College, will be one of the principal speakers on the program. President Crawford knows colleges, knows students, and knows how to teJJ what he knows In a manner that is more than entertaining. Janies Foley, nationally recognized as our greatest present humorist and wise writer, will also appear during the evening. He will talk for twenty minutes, and It is promised by Casey that Foley will crack his best ones next Wednesday night. Weaver Will Entertain Foley Is ever in demand as a speaker at banquets and parties in Log Angeles. U. 8. C. is fortunate ln getting Foley to consent to speak to us. 8ylvester Weaver, president of the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce, will be the third principal speaker of the evening. Other speakers will be President Bovard, Dr. Will Bovard, Tony Brewster, Gwynn Wilson, the presidents of the various colleges, and If the popular clamor for him is sufficiently great, Charles Casey might say a word or two. Dents to Clieer Diners Between courses the Dent Min-strelB, an all-fraternity jazz band, and the College of Music will entertain the diners. All organizations, fraternities, sororities, or groups may make arrangements to sit together by making written application and turning these applications in to the gelling agents. Will Ite Informal "Please stress tho point that the entire banquet will be informal," announced Casey yesterday. "The main reason for this Is because I can't get my dresB suit back from Uncle Ike's ln time, and also the committee believes that the students prefer informality.” “There is nothing of more importance occurring during the college year," said Gwynn Wilson yesterday. “Every student should feel obligated to come." There Is no limit to the number of students who may attend, but the committee wants it thoroughly understood that if 500 do not attend there will be no hanqiiet. Reservations have already been made by more than 100 students, which Ib proof conclusive that those who know what the banquet Is wish to attend. Coming as an Innovation In the control of campus activities, the executive committee of the U. 8. C. announced after its last meeting that hereafter all bodies of students contemplating the organization of any sort of society or club must, in order to gain campus recognition, flrst obtain the consent of this student governing body. Any proposed organization must Inform this committee of its name, nature and general purpose after which a vote will be taken and a sane-tion or rejection given. University Over-Clubed “This action has been made necessary for many reason," stated Claude Reves, alumnus member of the executive committee. "First, this university Is seriously ’over-clubed.’ There are many organizations existing ln U. S. C. which accomplish little, but effectively Bap the vitality of their members, and lay the burden ot dues and pins upon them.” Also, every year a number ot clubs are formed which have only a short life and go out of existence before the end of the school term. Practically nothing is accomplished by them; their existence Is too brief, yet they deprive worthy societies of needed support. Recognition May Be Refused Any body of students that has failed to gain Ihe sanction of the executive committee but persists in organizing will be refused all university support lucluding any mention in the Trojan or other school publications. The new ruling which has beeu included in the by-laws of the associated student body constitution becomes effective Immediately. However, no already formed society will be governed by lt.
