PARK Trojan Team I« Expected to Show Real Class in Game Tomorrow By Carl Farman Defeating the Whittier College baseball team by a 6 to 4 count oil last Tuesday afternoon in a game that went ten innings, the Cardinal and Gold nine showed a well balanced style of play throughout and proved that they have the makings, at least, of one of the strongest southern teams. Future prospects were marred considerably, however, by Sanji’a breaking an ankle in the first Inning. The Jap was varsity second-sacker last year and his return was counted on as a big factor lo keeping the team up to its greatest strength. Everett took his place and will probably remain 011 the keystone sack for the rest of the season. Poets Had Class The Poets were expected to put a good squad on their home diamond and lived up to advance notices in a way that kept the result doubtful up to the last play. They are known to be one of the leading nines in Southern California and their defeat by the • Henderson-Hunter aggregation speaks well for future Trojan chances against any and all comers. U. S. C. did not show its full strength, however, but it will be called on to do this tomorrow, when the L. A. A. C. bunch of horse-hide wallopers and pill-tossers extraordinary travel out to Exposition Park to add another to the list of their victims’ scalps. The game will be called at 2:30 on the Exposition diamond. Real Game Promised Inasmuch as IT. S.. C. has shown class in the initial game of the season and with the Athletic Club crowd one of the most touted in the city, the fans have a real battle before them in this mix-up tomorrow. The Club men make up an older and more experienced team, and one.which has the edge according to advance dope on the sub ject. They were one of Uie few teams to defeat the Trojans last season and they count on a repetition of the good work, but every indication points to a hot fight for them if they are to deliver the goods. The University’s squad this year is going to clean up on their college foes, if they hold on to their good start, and the Club nine Is going to meet a fast clever team with a high amount of individual ability. Henderson’s specialty Is making men work together, and if this happens as per schedule tomorrow the game w'ill be a real affair all the way through. Win or lose, a r;v<od crowd should turn out for the first game of the team on its home grounds. Lloynd on Mound The Whittier game saw George Lloynd on the mound for U. S. C., the firm major contest in which he has partlcipated'for the varsity. His work was up to snuff and according to Hoyle throughout the session, and he may be used Saturday against the Club team. In spite of the hard luck to Sanji, Tuesday was a good day for most the Trojans, the strong last-innliig finish Klving them a percent °f a thousand for tlie first game of the season. In addition, a couple of lusty connections with the horsehide by Ferrar and Everett gave each of these men a home run apiece. Errors were seldom, and although some resulted in scores by the Poets this is to be expected, if not desired, ln the early contests. Change in Line-up in addition to the change of second-sackers in tho first inning, a number of switches in the line-up were made by Henderson during the game. The reserves performed well without exception Ferrar went in for “Whlty”; Erhart at short, and Evans and Both well were used in the field. Follows the way the Trojans lined up: Lloynd, p; Schmitz, c; Hinrichs, '•>: Sanji, 2b; Erhart, ss; Turner 3b; Kincaid, if.; Kuhns, cf.; Ferrar, rf.; Hothwell, rf.; Evans, rf. Bothwell substituted far Ferrar in tlie 5th and Evans for Bothwell in the L°1 Ango*e», California, Friday. April 8, 1921 Compulsory Chapel Gets Support of Faculty No. 70 OF II. S. C.ARE 1 By Sarah Somers Many prominent faculty members of the University of Southern California have expressed their opinion favorably regarding compulsory chapel. That required assembly should be one of the religious and educational factors In the university life of the men and women at this institution, is the judgment of certain faculty members. Others, although in favor of the movement. personally think the matter should be left to the decision of the students and that It should be made an attractive feature, and voluntary. Prexy Favors Compulsory Chapel To the Trojan: "Personally, I would like to see every student in the University of Southern California attend the devotional hour in assembly., "Compulsory attendance nt such service does not appeal to me as being the most conducive to the devotional spirit. I would be glad if the spirit of the student body were such that a very strong influence would be favorable toward the attendance upon the devotional hour. “In view of the general interests of the students and of the university, it Initial Copy of Commerce Bulletin Appears Tonight _____■>,. Arnett Edits New Publication to Be Distributed at Banquet The first issue of the Commerce Journal, a monthly publication edited and supported by College of Commerce students, will be distributed at the Commerce banquet, held tonight in the cafeteria. One thousand copies will be printed, and exchanges will be made with the magazines of business houses and other commerce colleges in Southern California. Teachers of commercial subjects in the high schools will also receive copies. The magazine is entirely supported by the dueB collected in the Commerce Club, there being no chanrge for copies, Besides the contributions of the students, there will be several articles by leading business men of the Southwest. College of Commerce students not attending the banquet this evening may obtain the "Bulletin” at the Commerce office. Robert Arnett, '23, Is editor ot the paper, with Frank Blse, '23, assistant editor. Karl Didrickson, '23, is business manager, while Frank Krang, ’22 is circulation manager.

S. C. court team last Wednenduv also lost to the Pomona aggregation by a small margin. The four men—Greene, Olerieh, Freese and Skleners who played "Caltech" will probably face Pomona Saturday. The first doubles combination composed' of Greene and Olerich proved very successful af Pasadena Wednesday and will be on hand to furnish some genuine competition to the "Sag-liens." In the singles Pomona’s future looks bright but one can’t tell what will happen when a lighting Trojan gets started. The admission to the matches will be free and everyone is invited to at tend. This will be the only regular college match to be played on the Uni versity courts this season. does appeal to me that there should be, at least once a week, one assembly of required attendance. It is under stood, of course, that reasonable ex cuses for absences would be given consideration. I am not disposed to give much weight to the criticism offered by some, namely, that "if the committee in charge of ^ie assembly would provide a program worth while, the students would attend." TheTe are too many opinions to be considered as to what Is worth while to make tt a practical criticism. The real purpose of the assembly hour is a devotional hour, and the value of lt should not depend upon the address delivered, but rather upon the spirit and attitude of the students. Ordinarily the devo-, tional period should not exceed twenty minutes. 1 have been favorably Impressed with the devotional period as conducted by the assembly committee of this year. I repeat, there should be in every great educational institution a getting-together of all the students and faculty at least once a week for special announcements and special consideration of the Interests of the university which will tend to create a university spirit that will prove very helpful." No Sectarianism •’When we have the new auditorium, attendance at assembly should be ex pected by all students,” urged Dr. Healy, dean of the College of Theology. “Religious preference is not involved. There is no sectarianism in our chapel.” *‘In former oayfl it on® our requirements," remarked Professor Ulery, head of the biology department, “for the general good of the whole university it would be very desirable to have our students and faculty in general assembly. Tbe sacrifices made by a few individuals would be small In comparison to the general benefit that would he obtained by the student body as a whole. The so-called sacrifice would soon be of such value that it would be considered a privilege Should Be Voluntary "When chapei Is made compulsory it loses its effectiveness,” replied Professor Montgomery, when questioned •If assembly is made interesting, the students will be only too glad to at tend." , , . . “I should like to see a spirif developed wherein it would bring out the students voluntarily once a week remarked Dr. Emory S. Bogardus, head of the department of sociology This could be developed by co-operation on the part of the students, faculty and alumni of the university Should Be Made Attractive “I most emphatically believe that we should have, and maintain, a well-at-tended. highly functioning, freshly vital assembly three times per week How can this be done?” »aicl Dr. John A. Hill, dean of the department of religious education. “First—By holding it at a seasonable hour in the morning, long enough removed from the lunch hour, to be unmixed with savory and enticing smells from the cafeteria. “Second—By keeping It voluntary in attendance. As I believe that It should be essentially religious in a broad, helpful sense, such a service oses most of its force if made compulsory I do not favor the military method In i religion You can force the body to be 1 present but not the mind’s willingness. “Third—1 believe the services can be made so attractive and vital to student life as to largely gain their re sped and attendance, (a) By faculty and student Joint effort in planning for it (hi By beginning and closing promptly. Making it snappy and reasonably brief, and largely a group participation and not a one-man per formance Ac) By creating a student sentiment of loyalty as a university function and not look upon It as a faculty imposition to torture students Into being religious We should all get behind the assembly, as we do athletics, as a university affair Students 8hould Decide Personally. 1 am In favor of <0111 pulsory chapel" remarked Dr. Klewel-Hne. dean of the department of phllos^ opliy. ‘There Is a co-ordination of plrlt which results from a meeting of this kind However. I do not think It is a thing for the faculty to decide U should be determined by the students of ihe unlversitjN”^^^^^^^ Active Association Intended to I urther Interests and Development of This University B.

"There Is such a thing as over legislation." he said, ‘but then people are Just as likely to abuse liberty. If individuals forget that this is a Christian land and act come merrily tripping each morning, and happily llee In the late afternoon. The cabin itself is not so much to look at, and the teachers at the little school are only a tiny band of loyal workers, ! but thc amount of good the little cabin has accomplished and the pleasure It affords the poor settlers of the region cannot be described. All of which brings to mind that way out here in California there is an organization, that is holding a charity benefit dance this evening for the enlargement of that cabin and the betterment of the educational system of that particular county of Sevier, in the state of Tennessee.

Concerning its alms and purposes, E. V. Stevens, newly-,elected president. said fn an Interview yesterday: "Let me draw a picture of conditions as they now are. Students coming from other schools where they have been members of fraternities, llnd everything new and strange. It Is hard to get acquainted and they may wander ubout from class to class for several months before they find their cog in tlie wheel of student life. These first months are the dangerous ones; first impressions are lusting &nd if they are not favorable, U. S. C. -ufferB. "It shall be one of the duties of the Stray Greeks to help these newly- arrived Greek-letter people to And themselves and get Into a more democratic cycle of school life. A large portion of the student body of U. S C. is made up of transient students. Many of these students are here for but one or two semesters. There Is great need of some organization ln S. C. to mold these students Into boosters. They are not boosters now because they have not had the opportunity really to appreciate U. S. C. They draw a comparison between U. S. C. and tbe university from which they come knowing little or nothing of this school Ihe comparison Is not very favorable for U. 8. C. Stray Creeks to Bo^st ‘‘The Stray Greeks, If well supported, can develop into a power that will materially aid ln the development of Its members and U. S. C. as a , whole. “I wish to urge all the Stray Greeks 011 “the campus to get behind this organization so that tlie future Strays will find something to tie to when they come to U. 8. C." Membership is open to any U. S. C. student who wears the pin of a national sorority or fraternity. To broaden the Greeks’ knowledge of matters pertaining to fraternity activity throughout the states, a plan ot making special reports a feature of each meeting will be brought up for consideration Various other plans will be discussed.
