Lomax After these topic* were admirably **ven, the meeting wa* thrown open t! ®®n<!ra' di*cu*slon. Sample pins /. *“e society were passed around 'd a neat design selected. ■arge attendance wa* recorded. By Carl Farman On next Saturday many things, grldlronically speaking, will be decided, for at that time the Trojan* will don their war-stained, wasp-like jerseys with the nine gold stripes around their arms and do battle with the University of Nevada's group of pigskin specialists. Nevada is farther east than any team the Cardinal ond Gold meets this year, and a line on what the East can do in a football way should be shown fairly well at the game. This feature of the situation is about the only one which has been largely overlooked by the typewriter experts, but its Importance should not be underestimated. Team Is Ready At the present writing everybody on the team is well and happy with the exception of Tiny Townsend, who has a tendency to laugh whenever he hear* something funny, and Fred Axe, who is feeling dull in spite of the grind he has been through. If we were making puns we would say that Butterfield was as slippery as usual, but the lowest form of writ, which is what some highbrow called them, is hereby banned. James Smith has recovered from his Charles horse nicely, and Dean’s ankle shows steady improvement. The only cause of alarm is that Henderson is showing sign* of cheerfulness, a phenomena which. If protracted for any length of time, would be most unusual, but which will probably be of short duration. Right to Be Gloomy The coach, in fact, has a right to be gloomy, as does anyone who has had hopes of the Trojans playing on New Year’s Day. Not that these hopes are squashed as yet*-far from it, but it is CREEDS AT tl. S. C. Methodists Predominate While Unbelievers Run Close Second By One of the 423 U. S. C. is four-fifths religious, seventy-nine per cent of its students profess Christianity and more than one-third of the entire enrollment is Methodist; but most of all, U. S. C. is a university. The registration flgurt* on the religions of the Btudents attending the College of Liberal Arts betray a variety of belief equaled only by tlie confusion at the tower of Babel, and it takes a real university spirit to unite in any one organization the followers of twenty-nine distinct creeds ran^'i? from the church of Nazarene, through every stage of Catholicism, every degree of reformation, every type of restoration and every manner of qualification, to the several kinds of “un believer.” One of the most interesting things shown by the figures which Professor Montgomery and Miss Russell have worked out from the cards, is the largo percentage of the religiously indiffei ■ ent. Next to the Methodist group. Including members and those naming a preference for Methodism, who number 738 or 36 per cent of the entire attendance, the second group in size is the one having no church preference. Four hundred and twenty-three students left their card* blank, almost one-fifth. The exact nature of the indifference is not known. The Presbyterian group stands third, numbering 244, or 12 per cent. The Episcopal, Congregational and Baptist are next in order with 144, #3 and, respectively, and the Catholic fol lows with 76 The only other large groups are Disciples of ( hrlst, 4, Lutheran, 61, and Christian Science, 5i After all. what difference does It make? The strong moral and religious atmosphere of a denominational ut.l versity. which besides dealing In ihe higher learning a* do the undenominational schools i* exerting the Influences of deep religious feeling, cannot be dispelled by thirty varying beliefs among its student*. The two followers of Saint Paul, the Evangelist, are no less Christians because there are two Buddhists in the college The friends, the Mennonlte* and the Quakers are as welcome to their specific doctrines of salvation a* if there were no Universallst* presen . who willingly offer salvation to each and everv one The devotees of the doctrines of the AnK«H<'anH the Sev-enth Day Adventist* and the Holly Holler* do not envy th*'r*Tdo® creedles* Unitarian* and the doctrine "ss Ethical Society There are no spiritualists on record, but there is no way of ascertaining how many of th m who failed to answer are pursuers of the elusive ouijl and fatal try* ball. likely trom the style of play the varsity has been displaying this year, that a game with Calilornia, or possibly with Oregon, would result in a victory tor the northerners. The team has unquestioned power, as shown by spurts in some of the game already played, but whether they will be able lo display it consistently and combine with it the stone wall defense which they have occasionally used to. block au enemy attack is uncertain. Although the group of athletes under Henderson’s care have played and defeated four other grid teams, they still form somewhat of a question mark. Early in the season, before good form was expected, they more than lived up to advance notices by smearing the capable Cal. Tech team 47 to 7, and a week later bumped up against the Stanford Cards and held them pointless, winning 10 to 0. Little Apparent Chance By the time they met Oxy lt was expected that a smoother game would be played, but fumbles were frequent even then, and although the domesticated pussys from Eagle Rock were badly skun—(to quote Chaucer), it is hard to tell whether Trojan ability or Occidental’s lack of this quality was responsible. Probably a mixture. A week ago Saturday at Claremont, Pomona was held pointless while the Cardinal and Gold annexed another victory, but the low score indicates one of two thingB—the Trojans either had an off day or they did not care to extend themselves. Both, more than likely, for Henderson is not a coach who permits his men to run up a very high score, and the constant punting before even third downs had come indicated that there was little desire to try out an assortment of plays. In fact, only half a dozen combinations were used throughout the game. Mechanical features of the play were Bomewhat faulty, but although the nature of these was often serious, lt is likely that they will soon be remedied. Until they are remedied, however, thd championship caliber of the Trojans must remain ln doubt simply because it has not been shown. Nevada Game to Be Opportunity The Nevada game will afford the opportunity of aeeing whether the Henderson grid machine has become a practicably unbeatable outfit or whether it has yet to round into final shape before Oregon strikes Los Angeles and Pasadena. A large score would boost U. S. C. stock above par, a decisive victory would hold lt level, while a defeat would cause a terrific slump. Which of the three will take place is an open question to be decided on November 13. After that comes the Oregon game, and if the Trojans bring home the bacon from this struggle, a post-season contest with Berkeley sems inevitable. If what the Trojans can really do when they get started is still somewhat of a question mark, what the Bears can do is an exclamation point. The California eleven is the greatest that has represented U. C. in many years and its victories have been decisive and smashing, and it ha* suffered no defeats. If S. C. is returned victor next Saturday and from the Oregon game, the struggle with California will be a mem orable battle and a flght all the way througn. u. S. C. SCRIBBLERS TO TRY FOR EASY PRIZE Prize* for the best essays upon the merits of the Ohio-Tuec vacuum cleaner are being offered by Barker Bros. One-half interest in one of the machines or $15 ^11 be given as the first prize and $10 and *5 will be given as second and third prize*. Yesterday Percy C. Copeland, manager of Barker Bros.’ vacuum cleaner department, gave a demonstration to all those interested in the conte*t in the Journalism building He discussed the merits of the machine and listed 14 points of interest which the salesman advance* to sell tho vacuum Essays of 500 word* or less in length must be in the hand* of Marc N. Goodnow, Journalism Instructor, by Tuesday In order to be eligible to wjn one of the awards “Y” TO HOLD SPECIAL SERVICES IN DECEMBER Members of the faculty committee and representative student* of the Christian organization of the university met yesterday at the "Y” and dl*-cussed plans for some special religious service* to be held ln December. Beginning the first of next month these services are to be held for one week in the chapel at the 10:46 period. It is reported that Dr. Bovard desires to switch the class from the 10:45 pe ripd to 11:40, *o that all student* who wish to attend may do *o. Dr Merle N. Smith, of Pasadena, is to be the speaker at the service* An executive committee in charge of the meeting* ha* been appointed: namely, Claude Reeve*. Jeannette Green, Lawrence Hewitt and Ralph ha Porte aa chairman. Bonfires and Yells to Raise Pep for Thanksgiving Day Vari-colored pajama-ciad figures dancing in the flickering light of a lazing bonfire; full-throated yells splitting the silence of calm evening; ln spiring music, chprus singing, and an entertaining program. This is the manner in which U. S. C. will herald the coming of the Thanksgiving football game between Oregon an dthe Trojans. On the evening of November 24, a big out-of-door rally will be staged on Bovard Field for the purpose of introducing the fighting team of U. S. C. and also to provide an outlet for the surplus exuberance of enthusiastic rooters who might otherwise explode with pent-up energy and tense anticipation. An outstanding feature of the celebration will be a big bonfire, which will illumine the charms and beauties of the freshmen as they participate In a pajamarino. Freshmen, fat, lean, short, tall, frivolous, solemn, audacious and bashful will appear, clad ln their very cunningest pajamas, and will cavort gleefully over the athletic field. The mention of the aforesaid article of clothing does not signify that this rally will be a men only affair. Far from it. The lovely co-eds are expected to constitute a,—and the—fair portion of the assemblage. A program has been arranged, which Includes a number of gongs and yells, calculated to inform everyone within a goodly radius that U. S. C. Ib awake and preparing for the coming battle on the netx day. Oh. ye*! Our heroes will smile upon us,—Charlie Dean, Johnnie Leadingham, and all the rest. If present plans carry, the rally will be cancluded by 9:00 p. m., which will leave the balance of the evening free for the different organizations on the campus to use as they like best. WEEK AT U. S. C. Religious Organizations Will Supervise Daily Meetings In Chapel at 11:40 National prayer week will be observed at U. S. C. Beginning next Monday the various religious organizations of this university will give daily programs at 11:40 in the chape(.

Intereating Speakers Sought Efforts are being made to secure the services of Dr. Merle Smith, of the First Methodist Church of Pasadena, for every evening during the week. Although no definite arrangement* have, as yet, been made, It Is hoped that he will consent to conduct the evening assembly. On Monday at 11:40 the chapel exer cises will be ln charge of the Y. W. and Y. M C. A. The Home and Foreign Volunteer Associations will handle the services on Tuesday, while on Wednesday Dr. Flewelling will take charge in behalf of the unlver*lty.

The only chance the other 1.000 per cent team stands, IT. S. C., Is to decisively defeat Oregon on Thanksgiving Day, in which case the two ('alifornia colleges would be compelled to have a play-off for the New Year’s honor. If either California or U. S. C. should lose either ot their hard game*, the for mer to Stanford and the latter to Ore gon, that university would undoubtedly be out of the running—but this does not seem likely to happen. Stanford’* InBignificant defeat of the Washington university team hurts her hopes against the California. However, some of the best Cardinal players were on the sick list last Saturday, and their appearance in the “Big Game” November 25, may help matters somewhat. Pomona College, by defeating the aggressive Whittier team, maintained her position in the percentage column of the great college teams of the West. But Tech. dropped down several places, because of her unexpected defeat at the hands of the Occidental Tigers. A great deal of credit is due this fighting team, which, after losing all season, rallied enough to beat the strong engineer eleven. Tho University of Washington still hoIdB the cellar, by a safe margin. Two of her defeat* have been by three measly points, acquired by the excellence of somebody* toe, which nevertheless has proven powerful enough to keep them grpvelllng at the foot of the ladder. The Eaat The fighting bulldogs of Yale have kept the Blue and White hanner floating victorious over every field of battle so far waged this season. If Yale can ubdue Harvard, then her’s should be he right to play the game at Pasa-'ena, representing the East. Yale ha* ad a much harder schedule than Penn. State, the other 1.000 per cent colleg^ nd is, therefore, the one to lie chosen, f *he continues her present fine play-ng. Coach Dobie’s Penn. State team, reatly resembles the Qld Washington earns he used to put out, before migrating Eastward. His team at present stand* the belt chance of being U. S. C. SERVICE MEN AND WOMEN ASKED TO JOIN IN PARADE Former service men and women who are student* at the University of Sbuthern California have been asked by the Armistice Day committee of the American Legion to march ln the Victory Parade on November 11. Faculty and student* are invited to be present at tbe presentation of Victory medals to world war veteran* at Washington Park following the parade. Ths U. 8. C. band was also a*ked to take a place In tbe lineup. According to Gwynn Wilson, A. S. B. president, the band will not receive it* new equipment before that time. As moat of the service men In the University are member* of post* of tbe American Legion and will march with tho*e organizations, the University will not be represented by a aepa rate section in the parade. The administration haa issued a bulletin urging all ex-soldiers to support tbe parade and be present a* individual*, expressing their aympatby with the American Legion. ROUND ROBINS WILL SELECT CLASS TEAMS Tennl* round robin*, which occur every two weeks, will be the mean* of selecting claa* tennis teams this year. All membera of the Tennia Club are eligible, und will learn details of the tournament at the meetings which are held tn room 14 at 12:35 each Tuesday. At present tbe girl tennia champion* are: Miss Funk, first; Mis* Welsh, second; Miss Richardson third; Mia* Lane, fourth, and Mis* Cooke, fifth. The conte*t ha* been a very close one and the girt* who bead the Hit at thi* time wlU help to strengthen tbe girls’ varstty team. Iiosen, for»the Rimple reason that his hardest games have been fought and won, while Yale has Princeton and Harvard still beforo her. Princeton and Harvard, probably do not feel that they are out of the swim, because of their tie, last Saturday, and if Penn. Stale should he beBten, and If either the Orange and Black, or the Crimson of Harvard should conquer, the Bulldogs, then they would rightfully stand as the champions of Eastern Colleges. Brown, Dartmouth and Went Virginia have already demonstrated the fact that they are not the Ea*tern top-notchers this season, while poor old Penn, has right royally disgraced her-Belf by losing nil her big games to date. The possibility exists that some Mid die West team might be chosen to pla^ at PitBadena. There are undoubtedly some strong elevens between the East nnd the Far West thi* year, and prominent among them stand out Ohio State, the Championship Illinois team, Chicago and Notre Dame. NEW STADIUM TO BE READY NEXT SEASON Will Be Built in Back of Liberal Arts Along Hoover Avenue WILL COST $200,000 Work May Begin in January, 1921—-Contractors’ Bids Are Being Received Plan* for the new 22,000 seating capacity U. S. C. stadium, which were announced a year ago, are now complete, and final action preparatory to the actual building of the wtructure will take place within the next few months. According to Warren Fh>vard, the stadium will be erected on the present site of the small building* aud bleachers in the rear of the Liberal Arts building. If possible, construction will begin some time In January. Plans also Include the building of a large, modernly equipped gymnasium, to take the place of the old one that will be torn down. The committee, consisting of Wm. Bowen, E. L. Dolieny, Jr., and Warren Bovard, hnve already received contractors’ bids for the building. Tbe stadium 1s to be a tile structure, of a similar Btyle of tho new building. The cost will approximate $200,000. E. L. Doheny has charge of the financing. The committee plans to have the stadium in readiness for the 1021 football season. In addition to a turf field, there will be a quarter-mile track, and a hasebull diamond. Dressing rooms will be Included In the building. DR. HUNT URGES A GREATER INTEREST IN RHODES SCHOLARSHIP Professor H. L. Hunt, chairman of the Rhodes scholarship committee, urges the Htudent* of U. S. C. to take a real Interest In the Rhodes scholarship which Is open to the California colleges In 1921. The former examination requirements have been dropped. Students are allowed to give application* to the authorities of the University, who consider their qualifications and refer their recommendations to F. P. Griffiths, secretary of tbe committee of selection, In San Francisco. Qualifications are based on the following: (1) Manhood, force of character and leaderahlp; 12) literary and scholastic abilities and attainments; (3) physical vigor as shown by interest In out-of-door sport*. U. 8. C. has never been represented in this contest. Three men have gone from Occidental In tbe last ten years It Is urged by President George F. Bovard and Professor H. L. Hunt that the students of U. S. C. take a real Interest In the Hhode* scholarship DR. J. G. HILL RETURNS FROM ARIZONA TRIP Dr. J. O. Hill, professor of religious education, has Just returned from a flying trip to Arizona, where he made eight addresses ln the Interest of Sunday school classes. While In Arizona. Dr. Hill visited Governor Campbell at the stste house and also dined with him at home. Dr. Hill Is interested in relic* and curios and he brought home a piece of petrified wood to add to hi* collection George Young, a prominent Arizona mining man, showed Dr Hill about several of hi* mines In the Roosevelt dam country.
