QUINTET UNDER ^.itv Men Too Strong for Lighter and Slower Opponent. __Final Count Is 30-5 KPta Kappa Epsilon's basket ball j; rharged over, under, around and Jh the Delta Beta Tau five last Sv afternoon and won the first £ of the inter-fraternity basket n upHps by a 30 to 5 score. Hostili-J commenced at 5 o’clock in the 1 and in spite of the one-sided *> • the play was fast on the part of Sh teams up to the last few minutes fte game, when everybody took life more leisurely. The Zekes showed real class, both m nassing and in shooting goals, and hfip the I) B. T. outfit was not up their opponents in the finer points, £ey made up for their ignorance by displaying plenty of pep throughout tjie match. Hinrichs and Egan Strong For the winners, Hinrichs, who is captain of this year’s varsity, and Ellis Egan showed up particularly well in the scoring, »he former getting away with four baskets, while Egan •lipped over four and one penalty Each man played but one half. Cal land at guard and Boeck forward, also showed up well on offense and defense. Cassil, Freeman and Fox showed the most science for the losers, the rest of the men playing a fine game of football, both in tackling and line plunging, but scarcely putting up what might come under the head of scientific basket ball. The chief difference between the teams was that the Zekes scored about half of their chances, while the D. B. TVs made about one in ten. Otherwise It was a very even match. Plenty of Subs Substitutions were frequent during the game, with the Zekes sending in more men because of their wealth of material. Practically none of their players who worked in the first half came back in the second, while the D. B. T.'s were obliged to rely on Cassil throughout the game, in addition to calling back men sent to the side lines once. The victors scored 13 in the first half and 17 in the second. Delta Beta Tau made 4 in the beginning and 1 in the last stage. Penalties were fairly frequent, mose of them being committed by D. B. T.’s, though an occasional fault would be made by a Zeke. Zeta Kappa Epsilon was represented on the field of battle by Ilitchburn, Boeck, Hinrichs, Calland, Graham, Egan. White, Kichitz, Abbott, Dutcher, Redwine and Dietrickson. The following performed for Delta Beta Tau: Fox, Freeman, Patterson, Cassil, Ashbaugh, Frick, Farrow, Swanson and Phil Farman. Sigma Tau vs. Sigma Chi This afternoon at 5 o'clock Sigma Chi is scheduled to meet Sigma Tau In the third game. Yesterday Phi Alpha was to meet Gamma Epsilon, but no results could be obtained for today's Trojan. The former were heavy favorites. The first game, Zeta Beta Tau vs. Theta Psi, was forfeited by the former. It was scheduled for Monday. 1 BAZAAR OUE FOR NEXI WEEK Christmas art bazaars, the proceeds °f which will go for 1 bt* benefit of the art department, will be held by Pallette and Brush next week.

Next in line are the freshman bas-ket.-ballers. Jimmy Woodward is in charge of the schedule for the first year men, while Mr. H. R. Lee is to be their coach. During the next week teams will be formed by all those freshmen interested in basketball under the command of the leaders of the gym club. Some keen competition has developed already between teams representing the different classes. Mr. La Porte and Mr. Lee wish all freshmen interested to report to the gym office and get out into suits so they can get a line on all prospective material. As much interest has been shown in handball, a tournament has been arranged by Mr. La Porte for an early date in January. All handball men should sign up at the gym office. It is also the plan of the physical directors to hold a wrestling and swimming tournament in January open to all men of the university. STUDENTS GIVE OPINIONS ABOUT FASHION PARADE ‘It Is a Good Idea and a Necessary One,” Is General Consensus of Opinion of Students Interviewed “Wear right wearing apparel and pay proper prices," which will be the slogan of the dress display, will be popular at U. S. C. Many prominent students have given their decided approval of the sensible dress display, w'hich will be staged on Friday, December 17th, in the “Y” hut. ‘‘It seems to me a much more sensible plan than a fashion show of extreme models,” said Marjorie Helm, president of Torch and Tassel. “As for me,” said Al Wesson, better known as “U No Me Al,” “Its a good idea for any one who can get away with it, but until my salary is raised on the Trojan, I will have to dress the same way as I do now. A dress right display would do about as much good for me as a gas heater would in Hades.” When Charlie Dean, star football player at U. S. C., was questioned, he said, "Its a splendid idea.” Gross Alexander, when asked his opinion, replied: “A dress right display is all right, with the emphasis on the right." He did not state- however, which right he meant. It will be an instructive and effective affair,” quoth John Markey, business manager of Wampus. “I’ll be there,” said Jeanette Green, associated student body secretary. “Personally, I should like very much to know how to dress rightly. I sincerely hope that there will be the right price attached to the right costume. Andy Toolen, when questioned, hurriedly answered, "Oh! sure, I’m ln favor of it,” and Leo Calland, star west coast center, said: “I believe that everyone in school should know how to dress properly; if they do not have to know now, they will sometime in life.” "O. K. I think Its lots of fun, answered Morgan Cox, assistant sporting editor, “I’ll be there.” “It’s something that everybody should know, and if they learn it now, they’ll never be sorry,” stated Lindley Bothwell, Trojan yell leader. When asked for her opinion, little Dott Bussell, freshmen vice president, said: “I think that lt is a good thing. think all of us need suggestions.” "I am not qualified to speak for girlB, but for boys I think that the proper dress for school is old clothes," said Charlie Paddock, editor of the Trojan and Olympic star. Dress properly seems to be the popular sentiment at U. S. C. All are anxious to find out what is the right thing to wear at the right time. "Come out ’’ said Hector Brown, "Get an idea, some of them are only vague ones.” DELTA PSI CHALLENGES ‘NEW WORLD’ MAY BE GIVEN BY OCCIDENTAL Eagle Rock College Wants To Use Masque Produced U. S. C. Campus Last Year Occidental College has asked permission to present the "New World,” the masque written by Mrs. Laura Swartz and presented at U. S. C. last semester, according to Homer Sim mons, composer of the musical ac companiment. The masque, produced under the direction of Mrs Swartz, received first prize in the Quill masque contest last year. Although no definite details concerning the production could be se cured, the masque will probably be produced, enlarged by the addition of several songs and dances. The masque, presented on an out of doors stage under the auspices of the Quill Club, proved very successful and excited much favorable comment. It is an allegorical presentation of the search of Mars, Homo and the Poet for Love, who has fallen into the power of Materialism. Choruses of joys, evils and others of the beauties of the natural world added much to the charm of the whole. Clark Marshall, Myrna Ebert, Clar ence Perkins, Merle McGinnis and Harold Taft played the principal roles in last year’s production. rs. he / re; S th A Curious Thing But They Like It Have you seen them? Do those expressive little gold pins, which made their appearance on the campus yesterday, symbolize potential high explosive shells with a suave serpent encircling, bobbins from Singer sewing machines, or merely stubs of blue pencils bearing inscriptions with the Inscription “U. S. C. Press Club?” In any case, lt is a most remafkable emblem and thoroughly characteristic of the organization that flaunts it. Whatever it is, a potential uproar, combined with the prying curiosity of the snake, or a part of a machine that makes almost as much noise as a Trojan typewriter, lt is suggestive of the work and play, the whole life and Ideals of he amateur journalist, according to George Don Ashbaugh, who keeps them in the way they should go. Whatever it is, they seem to like lt, and so it must be a good pin. The Delta Psi Kappa girls of the Physical Education Department chal^ lenge any other sorority or ITOUP of girls to a baseball game during th week following Chrstmas vacatkm For further information see Marlon Cook. PLANS FOR PROPER CLOTHES PARADE OUT Plans for the Robinson's sensible dress parade to be staged in the “Y” hut at 11:40 on Friday, December 17, are almost complete, according to the committee In charge. It is the plan of the committee In charge to make this affair one of the most important events of the year. There are to be two non-frat representatives from Athena, Clonian, Aristo, Comitia, the Friendly Bunch, one from each fruternity, sorority, honor fraternity and honor sorority. The departmental clubs are not to be represented because only a limited number of people can be used. Mr. Potter and Glenn Cook will work on the advertising department. There will be a meeting of the student committee. Including Grace Cooper, Gwynn Wilson, Louise Kid-son and Paul Greene. Friday at 3 o’clock, in the chapel. After the committee meeting at 3:30 there will be a meeting of the models, most of which have been chosen. Committee members ask everyone to be there. Added to the list given In yesterday’s Trojan are the names of Charlotte Hastell and Anna Doyle, Athena representatives. Other organizations which have not handed in names of delegates should hand in such lists to the dean of women or any committee member, say those in charge of the affair. DR. FLEWELLING WRITES NEW BOOK ON PHILOSOPHY By Milton M. Inman "Bergson and Personal Realism,” the latest work by Dr. Ralph Tyler Flewelling, Is off the press. The book, which deals in a masterly fashion with the philosophical problems of reality and personality, was completed while the author was head of the philosophy department of tne A. E. F. University, Beaume, France, 1918, in the association with Bergson himself, who today is recognized by the Intellectual world as the greatest exponent of the philosophy of change. It is both a tribute to the genius of Bergson and a constructive criticism his popular philosophy. Personal realism is advocated as the solution to the difficulties that are concomitants of Idealism, realism and neo-realism. Doctor Flewelling has a way about him that (akes his philosophy out of the scholastic chimney corner, making it vital and applicable to every-day life. After all a philosophy that Is not workable is almost as useful as a mechanical toy that falls to function. If a bucket holds water, it is good; if not it might possibly be used as a make shift waste basket. A philosophy that will stand the test of real life is good; if it fails it might serve as the motif for the plot of a motion picture scenario. The book Is divided in two major sections: the first Is a constructive criticism upon Bergson’s philosophy of change, while the second Is principally concerned with personal realism in relation to life and the troublesome problems of philosophy which actual life has brought about. There are two chapters which stand out sallently and their chief value lies in the practical application that can be made of them in every day life. They are, “Personal Realism and the Troublesome Problems of Philosophy,” and "Individualism and Personalism." These two chapters would be sufficient to win a seat among the great thinkers and leaders of today for one who has not already won recognition. Problem of Evil The fact that a solution for the problem of evil, which is older than that of reality, is offered, should demand for It an extensive reading and serious consideration. According to the author the evil in the world today is seen to be the result of an unholy, lustful and greedy individualism, and we are beginning to see likewise that it can be done away with and an age of peace brought In only as men are willing to give up everything material for the greatness of a spiritual ideal. The responsibility for evil is not upon God, but upon men who are free moral agents. Every individual, however, must solve the problem for himself by making the pains and suffering of life yield a rich spiritual treasure. True Democracy Democracy, which presupposes selfrestrained moral and spiritual influences as fundamental to self government, is not to be attained by unrestricted individualism. Russian Bolshevism and the Reign of Terror are representative of exalted individualism. In religion Metholism, which hus permeated ull surviving forms of Protestantism and influenced Roman Catholicism, was born of the individualistic movement. The fact that great emphasis is laid upon un individual's relationship to God has saved it from the grossest faults of cultural und po litical individualism. The real estimate of the value of human personality, which has been neglected by materialistic realism and intellectual skepticism, is needed today. Problems of a social und a political democracy will be solved only after the true worth of a person Is appreciated. Personality Defined The strange power of self-identification is the essence of personality. Thut one may doubt the reality of the world around him or even the reality of other persons may he conceived, but to doubt himself would mean insanity or idiocy. This gives rise to the problem of modern philosophy which Idealism, realism and neo-realism have failed to solve, that Is the dualism existing between thought and thing which personalism or personal realism can alone solve by placing the reality not in the mind of the individual perceiver, nor in the matter which he perceives, nor ENTIRE IUNE CLASS PIANS SENIOR PARTY An all University senior party has been suggested for the next senior entertainment. Representatives from the senior classes of the various colleges will meet ln the near future to discuss the plan. Should this idea be adopted it would set a precedent for future graduating classes. “The need has been felt for some connection between the various senior classes and an all University senior night would fill this requirement," is the sentiment of the Liberal Arts seniors, who are enthusiastic supporters of the Idea. S. H. Club Affair Proves Very Successful Shafts of sifted light casting a mellow glow over the heads of all, music fit to appease the souls of Olympian Gods, punch that would Batlsfy the most thirsty in a delightful, dainty way, and over all, a floor, a setting, and perfect appointments, made the flrst S. H. Club dance, Tuesday evening, a tremendous success. The affair was held at Kramer's Academy, on Figueroa. The crowd of 150 couples was cosmopolitan, every group of individuals on the campus being well represented. From the flrst strains of Avalon, at 9 o'clock, until the final bar of Home, Sweet Home, everybody danced and made merry. Those who attended are emphatic in their statements that it was fhe most successful affair of the kind ever held here.

He spoke on “The Golden Rule in the Life of the World." "Every thinking man has a creed,” lie said, "which Is Immensely important ln the moulding of his life. Also, it Is Immensely important whether that creed Is one of hatred, or selfishness, or brotherly love. “A kind of Christian creed that will guide people ln the proper direction: the Golden Rule Is needed. Our eyes ure set too far In advunce. They ure on the end of the world, not here now. We have the Golden Rule ln mind but we need to give it expression. "It should be applied ln the Industrial world.” Dr. llarker told a story of a Yankee and Dutchmun, who decided to divide tlieir crop of potatoes. The Yankee did the dividing: “1 take one; you take one; I take one; I take one; you take one,” etc. In the end the Yunkee had twice as many potatoes as the Dutchman. “This Is the way the profiteers work today. They want flrst und lust of everything. “Raciul prejudice is caused by the non-application of the Golden Rule. It Is u thing we Callforiiiuns need to unlearn for the demon seems to be especially ensconced in ub, thrown as we are among the Japanese and Mexicans. “We lost the Golden Rule and played politics witli the League of NatlonB to the disgrace of the American people. “We do not need legislation but more religion. Bernard Shaw realized this when he wrote 'Why Not Try Christianity?’ ” Dr. llarker based his talk on Christ’s Sermon on the Mount. "It worked then and lt will work now. All we need to do is try it by applying lt.” Dr. Harker was flred with enthusiasm for his subject. His speech was spiced with much humor. The Choral Club sang, "When Power Divine,” by Faure Shelley, Prof. Cogswell conducting. CAL. QUINTET WILL PLAY POMONA TEAM CLAHEMONT. Dec. 8.

ANTONIO” PLEASES LARGE CROWDATGAMUT Acting Is Done in Perfect Style By Embryo Actors — Every Member of Cast to Be Praised for Work By "B. L.” If Booth Tarkington were at the Gamut Club last night, attending the performance of "Mister Antonio,” given by the Department of Oratory, he would Burely have been amazed at the way in which tho play was presented. From the moment the curtain roBe and till it dropped the audience wus swayed with the actors as they lived through their respective characters; registering pathos and comedy ln the most tactful way. The directorial hand of MIsb Hilliard, who coached the play, was visible throughout, and much credit of the play’s success is due to her tireless efforts und ability. We often hear of how amateurish certain professional productions are; It can be said, in this case, thut one would have a difficult tlmo saying whether the production of “Mister Antonio” last night was a professional or an amateurish one. Perfect Acting Each member of the cast went through the characters In perfect fashion. Those who have seen the original performance of the play in 191f> with Otis Skinner in tho lead, will no doubt ugree with the abovft statement. Otis Skinner, himself, would have marveled ut the wonderful way ln which Mr. Howse characterized the part of Mr. Tony Camera-donlo, a part that Mr. Skinner devoted three seasons to make famous. The most difficult purt In the play wus the part of Joe, the half-witted companion of Tony, who appeared in every Beene and did not Bay a word, but obeyed the commands of his master. Tills difficult character was portrayed in a skillful manner by Mr. Fancher. Spontaneous upstarts of laughter greetel him as he lived and acted In the various scenes. The wonderful Impersonation of June Ramsay, by Lucile Mitchell, received much favorable comment. Her ability of Hrousing the audience to a high pitch of suspense, with the pathoB and passion cannot be praised too well. Each member of the cast Is responsible for the success of tho production. It Is a pity that we do not have more such entertainments. Affected by shivering knees, nau-sea, and giddiness, 15 Initiates Into Comitia await the “strenuous time” which President Walter Ralph has promised for next Tuesday night at 7:30. With great primitive yearning to view huinun misery, the amazons of Clionian eagerly accented thq Invitation to attend this Initiation party at the “Y" hut. All the alumni of Comitia and Inactive members, among whom are numbered Claude Reeves, Professor Willet, Charley Paddock, and numerous other notables of former years, huve been usked to be present. A hilarious program of a secret nature will pleuse the most sated taste, to be topped off by “novel eats served In an extremely novel way." The victims for the agonizing ordeal" by which every convort must demonstrate hls finite greatness, ure; Ivan Waterman, George Biggs. Marlon Douglas, Herbert Hooper, Harold Mason, Wakefield Bryket. O. Henry King, Arthur Grannatt, llarrv Kennedy, 11. Thompson Brown, William McMillan, Dwight Reay, Ed Gordon, William Barber and Victor L. Bone. Tuesday evening an enlightening program was given. Following the devotions u violin solo by Mr. Ivan Waterman pleased the Comltlans. Mr. Bamford delivered u talk upon the "Social Aspects of the Fishing Industry ln San Pedro.” Presenting facts and figures which he had personally collected from the various cannery rnunagers, chambers of commerce and other sources, he gave* a deep Btudy of conditions as they exist In that occuputlon. He emphasized the Japanese question In that region particularly, offering a word of praise for their hygienic mode of living. All committees for the big celebration next Tuesday were then fixed and the meeting adjourned.
