Varsity put it all over the Sage Hen eleven last Saturday by the yery fierceness of their attack. Yet ts as football goes that game was not a id very high class exhibition of the art. 251 fliis does not mean that the Trojans >r- tere not entitled to what they earned, but it does mean that they have yet Pfflong way to travel before they can approximate the finished product that Coach Henderson wants to make before this season is over. “Tilt seems too bad that we must criti-$se men who have the spirit those gen displayed Saturday, but we are ling it purely because the varsity ieds something or somebody to stand ALCOHOL MAY BECOME POPULAR FOR FUEL, CLAIM Y.

Too much talk, people, too is I much self-satisfaction, too much I-told-tjJBu-so attitude; and it isn’t helping team or the college spirit a little b oost for that team of yours; they led it and they deserve it, but it st be the fighting boost, the never-Jy-die-hit-’em-again spirit.

Tunison, a graduate of U.S.C., read one of the five important papers prepared by chemists for the national convention of the American Chemical Society, which closed a few days ago in New York. According to Tunison, King Alcohol may exercise newly acquired sovereignty as a result of becoming before long the most popular fuel for internal combustion engines. It must, however, await the further increase in the cost of gasoline before it can compete. Once alcohol becomes a popular fuel it was predicted the amount consumed would be ten times what it was before prohibition greatly reduced the amount used. Mr. Tunison told of several new and promising sources of alcohol, among them the nipa palm, which flourishes in the Philippines and other tropical countries and yields, he said, about 15 per cent of sugar, which could be fermented. From this source it was predicted that 50,000,000 gallons a year could be obtained. Tunison, who is well known to the older students, was prominent in student life on the campus. He managed the Glee Club for two years and took the lead in the Junior play, “The Passing of the Third Floor Back.” He is a member of Lance and Lute and Phi Alpha. He is at present in the employ of a large oil corporation in New York, having charge of their chemistry department. Today in the chapel at 11:40 the opening guns of the Y. M. C. A. campaign for $1000 will be fired. A men’s assembly has been called. The speakers will be Claude Reeves, A. S. B. President, and the class presidents. It takes $4000 to run the Y each year. One quarter of this sum the students are asked to give. There will be no more campaigns of this sort because the Y has recently become affiliated with the city Y. M. C. A. This affiliation brings with it an appropriation from the down-town organization. Most men consider any amount donated to the Y is only a partial return for services received. League Covenant is Classed With Magna Charta and Am. Constitution WILL STABILIZE CONDITIONS WOMEN’S MAGAZINES URGENTLY REQUESTED Chief Librarian, Miss Brown, would appreciate it very much if all women students of U.S.C. who take either the “Ladies’ Home Journal,” the “Women’s Home Companion” or “The Delineator,” would bring the same, when they are through with them, to the University Library This, it is thought, will be a very convenient manner m which to secure for our library these most needed magazines, without working a hardship upon anyone. American . Citizens . Should . Be Acquainted With the Actual Text DR. FLEWELLING GIVES ILLUSTRATED LECTURE Dr. Flewelling’s illustrated lecture before Le Cercle Francais last Friday afternoon was very interesting. A few views from Scotland were shown, illustrating the beauty of the Lady of the Lake country, but most of the pictures were of France, where Dr. Flewelling was with the American Expeditionary Forces. The scenes ranged from pictures of monuments of the Caesars dating from the Roman invasion of France to views of the great American university at Beaume. Medieval castles with moat and drawbridge, and medieval towns with their houses crowded within the protecting city walls, were shown. Of interest, also, were views of the Cathedral of Rheims before and after the German artillery fire, with the evidence that the sole object of the fire was the destruction of the church. Dr. Flewelling briefly explained each picture as it was shown on the screen, making it doubly interesting. That the leading educators of the country are in favor of the League of Nations is becoming more and more evident every day. Throughout the country various teachers’ organizations have gone on record as favoring an immediate ratification of the Peace Treaty with Germany and the adoption of the covenant of the League of Nations. As voicing this sentiment, Professor Clark, teacher of History at the Sen-tous Intermediate School, gave an swers to the following questions: Mr. Clark was asked what he thought of the covenant. “The covenant of the League Of Nations,” he said, “is one of the greatest of four documents of the world. The Decalogue furnished the basis for individual conduct for all mankind. The Magna Charta of England formed the basis for England’s greatness as an empire. The Constitution of the United States of America provided for the organization of a nation which has become the envy of the world. The Covenant of the League of Nations is an honest attempt to unite the civilized nations of the world into a unit to discourage war and promote the arts of peace.” “A comparison,” Mr. Clark says, “ of this document with the Constitution □f the United States reveals a great similarity between the two.” Mr. Clark advises all American citizens to secure a copy of the Covenant of the League of Nations and acquaint themselves with its provisions. “The simplicity of it,” he stated, “and its practical aspects command immediate respect and endorsement.” What will be the immediate effect Public Initiation of new members may take place on Thanksgiving Day BANQUET AT THE VIRGINIA Big semi-annual banquet for active members and alumni is season’s event Skull and Dagger, the men’s honor society of the University, held its first meeting Monday noon at the City Club, and discussed plans for the election of new members, the public and secret initiation, banquet, the encouragement of membership in the American Legion, and ways of further introducing the “Trojan” into the professional colleges. It is probable that the public initiation of new members will take place on Bovard Field between nalves of the Thanksgiving Football game. On the evening of the same day the secret initiation will, according to custom, be held at the Hotel Virginia in Long Beach, after which will come the social event of the semester for S. C. students — the semi-annual banquet. The banquet is for both alumni and active members. The committee is making arrangements for an attendance of fifty couples. The banquets of Skull and Dagger are decidedly co-educational. The Society intends to initiate an active campaign for recruits to the American Legion. Clifford E. Hughes impressed on all the urgent necessity for leadership of college men in the Legion if it is to occupy its deserved place among American institutions. The details of the campaign will be announced as soon as perfected. Clifford Burr, Claude Reeves, and Raymond Haight were appointed a committee to investigate and report on means of co-operating with Editor Metcalfe and Manager Moore in more closely relating the “Trojan” to the iffairs of the non-campus colleges. Other chairmen and committees appointed by President Voltaire Perkins are as follows: Pins—Ben Weiss. Ritual Initiation — Claude Reeves, Raymond Haight, and Victor Koenig. Programs—Clifford Burr. Public Initiation — Arthur Taylor, Ugene Blalock, and Noel George. Banquet—Clifford Hughes. Publicity and Notices—Henry Bruce. PLEDGES Phi Alpha Delta announces the pledging of Robert Graham, Wilbur CurtisB, Robert Smith, Virgil Lewis, and George Mac Laughlin. (Continued on Page 4) Pi Beta Phi announces the pledging of Mildred Heinze.
