A selfish fraternity can not help but do the university harm Every ‘frat’ is organized for the good it can do its members. The main purpose of the council will be to keep this purpose in view. “Also we are going to bring about a closer relationship between the various fraternities, among which misunderstandings have arisen. “All the fraternities are very much disappointed at the scholarship, showing this semester. Strenuous efforts are being made to raise the standard this coming term.” The president of the council will be selected from the oldest fraternity in the school. The next one will be from the next oldest fraternity, and so on, until the list has been exhausted. HOME CONCERT PROGRAM GOOD Professor Cogswell expressed himself as quite satisfied with the home concert given by the Men’s Glee Club iast Tuesday evening in the chapel. Judging by the enthusiasm shown by the audience, his opinion is well taken. The program contained many new numbers, and special numbers by Haygood Ardis and Dwight Williams that were additions to the original program. A new arrangement was carried out in the college songs number. Haygood Ardis, president of the club, states that the men are very eager to start on the northern trip next Saturday and wiU do their best to give IT. S. C. a good showing in the north. An exceedingly clever little skit, a Coincident with the Greater Uni versity expansion program, comes the announcement that a very valuable addition to the faculty has been made. Senorita Maria de C. G. Lopez, at present a teacher in the Julia Richman High School and Columbia College in New York, has been engaged for the Spanish department and will assume her new duties here at the beginning of the fall term. Senorita Lopez was formerly from Los Angeles and has taught special classes in Spanish in summer sessions in the University, so she has a wide circle of friends and acquaintances who will be especially glad to hear of her new contract. She has done considerable work in connection with the Mission Play under the persona! direction of Mr. McGroarty, the author. During the war, she served with the Red Cross overseas, where she rendered distinguished service in her unit. It was previously rumored that she would begin her work in the University during the summer session, but she has obtained a release in order that she may spend the summer in traveling and studying in Spain. Faculty members and students who know her personally or indirectly through her wide reputation, feel exceptionally happy since she is to be with the University permanently. MATH.

Olson, a member of the graduate class of U. S. C., collected the material for his thesis, “The Octrois as a Factor in French Municipal Finance,” which will be published in June. During the period of investigation which covered some six months, Olson was attending the University of Poitiers, Poitiers, France. He holds a letter from Lafferre, Minister of Pub lie Instruction and of Fine Arts, which reads as follows: Letter From Minister “The Director of Superior Instruction has learned with the greatest in terest of the vast survey on French administrative organization carried on by M. Reuel L. Olson and Edgar P. Paulsen during their sojourn at the University of Poitiers. He is pleased to congratulate them upon the spirit with which they have accomplished their task, which is of a nature to make France know’n and appreciated in America, and expresses the desire that a similar piece of work upon the administrative organization of the United States could be accomplished by their efforts and sent to France.” For this work Olson was named “Of-fTcier d’Academie” and awarded Academic Palms by the government of France under date of September 20, 1919. This medal is given for educational work and special investigations in France and has also been awarded Professor Riddle of the French department and Superintendent Sliiels of the public schools of Los Angeles. Defines Octrois Olson defines the Octrois as a “duty or tax levied on articles at the time of their admission into a town.” He savs: “Taxes on four-wheeled vehicles are higher than taxes on two-wheeled vehicles. The majority of the vehicles are two-wlieeled, and the size of the loads hauled on two-wheeled wagons is amazing. Taxes on two horses hitched abreast is heavier than the tax on two horses hitched tandem. The more doors and windows you have in a house in France, the heavier your tax.” Olson’s thesis includes many letters and interviews from men who are important in public life in France. One of the interviews is with M. Cecalldi, le Prefet, which corresponds to our Governor of the State. M. Cecalldi said, in part. Admires American Way “1 admire the American wfiy of dashing headlong into subjects over which other nations would deliberate and quarrel for years. America alone dared to tackle such problems as the entire cessation of the liquor traffic (tout a coup). America stands alone in its courage and in its daring to act in accordance with its best judgment without fearing that the consequences could not "be taken care of if they proved unfavorable or embarrassing France,” he continued, “is old, very old -politically one of the oldest of all the European countries and cannot do things in the way a young nation does. The people of France are conservative. They have had centuries of war, bloodshed and terror, and must consider every move in its fullest detail before venturing new plans, however unimportant.” HOLD SPHINX AND SNAKES BANQUET Sphinx and Snakes held its second initiation banquet of the year Tuesday evening at the Mary Louise tea rooms in honor of John Markey, junior play manager, and Jimmy Woodward, mem ber of the executive committee and boxing instructor, two new initiates. Following the banquet short speeches were made by Victor Koenig, Claude Reeves, Markey and Woodward. Election of officers wound up the evening. Irwin Snavely was elected president, Jimmy Woodward was named vice-president, Earl Hazelton was chosen secretary, and Elmer Wahrenbrock, corresponding se( tary. SETTIE BASEBALL With the track squad on edge after the showing made in the California meet last Saturday, prospects for a close meet with Stanford this coming Saturday are very great. U. S. C.’s strength in the track events will be taxed to the utmost by the northern competition, while both squads will have to go strong in the field events. Stanford’s one meet so far this year resulted in a victory for the Red and White over a combined Pomona and Redlands squad, 71 to 50. Kirksey of Stanford in the sprints and Green in the pole vault were the sensations of the meet. Kirksey was officially credited with 10% seconds in the lOO-yard dash, but three expert timers caught him in 9%. He won the 220-yard in a walk. Coach Maloney of Stanford pre diets that Kirksey will beat Paddock in the century. Green of Stanford won the pole vault at 12 ft. 7 in., and Gillespie threw the discus 126 ft. 8 in. Although the track season has been under way but a short time, records made by the Stanford squad stamp it as one of the strongest ever turned out at the northern university. For U. S. C., Paddock, SchilLer, Wilson and Evans are expected to star. Y. W. NOMINATES NEW OFFICERS At the Y. W. C. A. meeting Monday the following officers were nominated for next year: Marion Curtis, president; Marion Joplin, vice-president; Bernice Seheidler, secretary; Ona King, financial secretary; Katherine King, Treasurer. The new cabinet and nominating committee will decide on the Committee chairmen for next year. The old and new cabinets are planning a house party at Dr. Hill’s cabin for the week-end of April 16. SUBSCRIPTIONS TO EL RODEO CLOSE TODAY be miscellaneous ager of the book, said yesterday. WILL ATTEND IN BODY In order to select members for the Lance and Lute for next year, the members of that organization will at tend “Green Stock'*-^s” In a bodv This was announced today by Clark Marshall, president of the society. “Today is the last chance for stu lents who have not already subscribed for the El Rodeo, to do so,” said Car) Seitter, manager of the year book. “No xtra copies will be printed, wo if you want to be sure of getting an El Rodeo you had better see to it now. “Many students have not chosen the nicture they wish to have retouched. These pictures must be selected by Friday, as that is the last day for Individual selection. After that date we will make our own selections, be cause the photos will be mounted dur in? the holidays. Those students who must have a resitting should see me at once, so that a place will be re served for them in their proper organ izations.” Theta Psi Diamond Crew Will Battle Dental Stars In Final Game MANY STARS UNCOVERED Zeta Beta Tau and Pharmacists Fail in Attempts to Mobilize Nines With Theta Psi the winner of the inter fraternity baseball scrap and the game for the University championship between the Thetas and Dental in the near future, all signs point to the re-juvination of the grand old American game on the Campus. The interfraternity contests provided all the thrills that the coach had said they would. Also they made it possible for the coach, even though he said they didn’t, to get a line on the mass of sleeping talent that the uni versity has within her walls. From the size of the squad out for the varsity, though it looks like.a lot of it did not. even stop snoring. In the first round of the contests to the tune or a 16-4 score. Cal Lauderbach was the only gem in the rough that was discovered in this free-for-all. He is trying to get hold of an outfield birth so as to be in oil the Japan trip that the ball team has been going to take for the last 10 years. Theta Psi Cops Theta Psi was the next dark horse to come out into the light and was able to do this by walking over the Sigs. Webster and Gillis were largely responsible for the victory, as both are first string twirlers. However, due to the fact that Gillis is a transfer and Webster only has freshman standing, the varsity will have to wobble along without their valuable assistance. The basketball champs dropped out of the running when the I). B. T.’s sat on the Zekes, 4-2. Archie Thornton, of Norwalk fame, provided the thrills in this scramble by his speed and control. Dutch Hinrichs, of the tossers, showed considerable class. The Zeta Beta Taus, Sigma Taus, and Pharmacy were unable to mobilize sufficient men, so thus ended the first round of the struggle. Phi Alpha went after the semi-finals witli a bang, but two costly errors and the pitching of Webster proved too much for them and the game went to the Thetas, 4-2. Laying Low I>. B. T. was laying low all this time to clean up on the winners of the Phi A.-Theta game. Maybe it was lack of sleep, but the fact remains that they lost, 7-0, and Theta Psi was crowned fraternity champions. All the while, and on the quiet, the non-fraternity and Dental teams were laboring to get together, and when they succeeded, the former was snowed under by the enormous and exciting score of 3 to 2. it might be well to go on and mention the other gems that were found hidden in the dusts of the fraternity archives. Thornton is going to be a eal find, and looks as if he has a birth (Continued on Page 4) STUDENT DEVOTIONAL HOUR A special Easter program deal ng with the significance of the Eastertime is planned for Thursday evening at student devotional hour. Dr. Hill urges the giving of special thought to the hour at th's season of the year. The time is 7 to 8 p. m., Thursday, and the place is the “Y" hut.
