The junior class has the honor of editing the big year book, but the entire student body is interested in its welfare. Three Candidates Florence Gilbert, Wendell N<'ely and McClelland Wright are the three who are seeking the position of editor-in-chief. Miss Gilbert has be n one of the mainstays of the Trojan for the whole year. She has done desk work, ed itorial writing, news writing, and feature writing. In addition. Miss Gilbert has had practical experience 011 El Rodeo, aiding Miss King by editing copy. She has worked, also, on three newspapers outside of school, and her work on them has been commended by editors. Neely was one of the fathers of Wampus, and has contributed dozens I of drawings, as well as many articles His writings and drawings have also appeared in Los Angeles publications outside of school, j Wright came to us from Columbia, where he worked 011 tbe Freshman Spectator. Since coming to U. S. (’., (Continued on Page 2) By Florence A. Gilbert San Bernardino flung open wide the gates of her hospitable city last week end to eighteen enthusiastic news hunters of The Trojan staff and journalism classes of U. S. C., who, under the direction of Marc N. Goodnow, journalism instructor, George Don Ashbaugh, who was “brought up” in San Bernardino, and Tom Metcalfe, Trojan editor, published the Sunday edition of the Index. Trojans who made the trip, from the Among other experiences, including “vamping,” a well-known movie actor. Josephine Clancey, invaded front page territory with two signed stories. Dorothy Coje visited Patton to get a “nut” story, but came back feeling greatly impressed by the wonderful work being done there. Just before midnight, the hour when life’s grim tragedies occur, Mr. Mercer offered to take the crowd for a visit to the county iail. Frightened, but not daring to refuse, these law-abiding citizens followed the Index editor to the jail— just a block away. Everything in San Bernardino seems to be centered about the jail—the dance halls, court house and newspaper offices are conveniently near. “Say! whispered our erstwhile dignified Trojan editor, as he stepped inside a barren cell—“I’m going to be careful about what I put in the Trojan after this!” Shades of Shivering Shads The turnkey led the trembling Trojans from cell to cell, until they reached one which is famous over the country. A one-armed, illiterate Mexican, convicted of grand larceny, had decorated the walls, with no tools other than a lead pencil. The talent shown by these drawings, one of which was a picture of the crucified Christ, was responsible for the release of the artist, who is now studying art. The obliging turnkey motioned for the crowd to step inside the “dark cell,” where obstreperous prisoners are placed. Words can’t express the feeling. . . . “Law and order for me!” was the unanimous opinion of the entire crowd. Banquet, Oh, Boy! The announcement of a "big feed" came as a surprise to the students. The Index account of the banquet follows: "University of Southern California (Continued on Pago 3) advertising men who went up Thursday to the last arrival upon the scene, were given the glad hand by Hamilton Mercer, Index editor. Wake Dead By the way, these advertising men, Paul Greene, Trojan manager; Edward Volk and Jack Kinkaid, wrere so successful that they were able to drag ads from merchants who were so dead that they had not advertised for six or eight years. Dead indeed will these merchants be considered by readers of the Index if they fail to continue advertising after the appearance of the snappy ads written by the S. C. men. Work began for most of the Trojans at 9 o’clock Saturday morning. Halffrightened, half-pleased, the future journalists stood trembling while they listened to the thundered commands of Ashbaugh, assignment maker for the day. Parting of the ways then began— no longer could cub reporters lean upon their stronger friends; each had to depart to the scene of the latest murder, accident or teachers’ meeting assigned to him. “Work, Ye Gods, Work!” “Work! Work! then work some more!” seemed to be the motto of the Trojans, who pounded out stories on the typewriter faster than Charley Paddock runs the 100. One story written, ye reporter would start off for unknown parts for the latest excitement. Frank Price, of the Trojan desk, grabbed off a big scoop by writing a story about the fact that San Bernardino has the cheapest water rates of any of the surrounding cities. “Pat” Writes Sports Florence Nicholson — otherwise known as “Pat”—broke into the sport page with a swimming story. True, the story required a visit to the stuffy attic of a garage, but the triumph was “worth it.” O. D. JENNINGS IS ELECTED S. B. PRESIDENT A T DENTAL Nosing out his opponent by the narrow margin of seven votes, O. D. Jennings was elected president of the College of Dentistry student body last Friday. Jennings polled 75 votes, while H O. Baumgardt, his rival, got 08 ballots. Stone was an “also ran.” The various officers-elect, when in terviewed, stated that it would be their plan to foster all the plans now in DENTAL FRATERNITY BIDS SENIORS GOOD-BYE Last Friday night the Xi Psi Phi Dental fraternity bade its seniors a fond farewell in the light of social activities, by a dance party, held at the Fraternity house at 2622 Figueroa street. The spirit of the party was kept at the highest possible pitch by a four-piece orchestra, the violin being manipulated by Waltz, of the late Dental Minstrels, and the trap drums skillfully operated by Wheeler, also of said Minstrels. progress for a greater university and a closer relation between the various colleges, and to push any new plans to a successful culmination. Floyd Oldham, the retiring president, has made an enviable record, and if Jennings continues the same unselfish and impartial plans followed by him, he is assured the hearty co-operation of the entire student body.

C. baseball fans will have a steady diet of games this week, beg inning with a contest today with Pomona and ending in a set-to with the Sherman Indians at Riverside on Saturday. In between times the Trojans will take on Occidental College and Fullerton High School. The most important games of the ___ week c b m e today and tomorrow, when the Trojans will meet Pomona and Occidental colleges. S. C. has defeated both teams within the past month, but expects stronger competition in this week’s games. Both the Pomona game today and the Oxy game tomorrow will be played at Exposition Park, starting at 3:30. Thursday afternoon the Trojan nine will journey to Fullerton to take on the local high school boys, and on Saturday afternoon Coach Henderson’s tribe of fence wreckers will tangle with the Sherman Indians at Riverside. After Saturday afternoon the Trojan ball team will have nothing to do until next week. Wants a Crowd Coach Henderson is making a special appeal to get out rooterB for today’s game with Pomona and tomorrow’s mix-up with Oxy. An added attraction at the Oxy game will be the initiation of the pledges of the Varsity Monogram Club. The Oxy game is doped to be the biggest of the season in spite of the lop-sided score by which the Trojans defeated them two weeks ago. Oxy’s first string pitcher, Alcick, will be 011 the mound Instead of Hitch, the sub whom the S. C. wrecking crew hammered all over the park in the last game. Grant Kuhns, with a hitting average of close to .500, is the main factor in the Trojan attack. “Dutch” Hinrichs is not far below him in the list. Archie Thornton is the leading pitcher on the varsity nine. He will probably work against Pomona this after noon. Other members of the varsity squad are Bill Schmitz, catcher; Lindsay Gillis, pitcher; ('apt. Tommy Freer, first base; Sanji, second base; “Whitey” Erhart, shortstop; “Shorty” Pesquiera, third base; Mill Isenhouer, left field; Lindley Bothwell, Logan Lindley, Tom Metcalfe, Stout, and Floyd Tarr, substitutes.
