New Wampus Copy Wanted “Wednesday is the deadline for turning in Droodles for the February issue of Wampus and also Science for contributing stories, poems, and cartoons,” co-Editor Tom Pflimlin announced. The Droodles, according to Pflimlin are sketched objects w'hich do not make sense without a written explanation. Winning Droodles will be published in the next Wampus. “Money will be paid for printable stories, poems, and cartoons of a humorous nature,” co-Editor Ken Niles said. Both Droodles and contributions should be left in Pflimlin’s box in SU 215 or mailed to Wampus, Box 244, in care of the University. Highlights of the February issue of the Wamp include: Wam-« pus’ visit to a Cocktail Party, two pages of Roses n’ Razzes, a Wampus girl, the Academy Awards, Know Your Professor, and gobs of information about registration. "This will be the registration issue," ~ the parody issue in March UNIQUE Institute Gets Check From Turf Club A check for $8333.33 to support the work of the Delinquency Control Institute of the School of Public Administration was received Friday by SC from the Hollywood Turf Club Associated Charities. Since 1945, $107,958.50 has been contributed to the Institute by the same donor. The Institute is unique as the world’s only specialized training program for law enforcement officers who work with juvenile delinquents, according to Director Dan G. Pursuit. A total of 262 officers have been graduated, 217 of them from California cities, 37 from other states of United States territories, and eight from foreign countries including Formosa, Germany, India, Finland, Korea, Costa Rica, and Norway. There are about 200,000 law enforcement officers in the country, Pursuit said. If approximately five per cent were assigned to juvenile work there would be 10,-000 officers working with juveniles. "Since the Delinquency Control Institute has trained only 262 officers, the nation faces a tremendous challenge to continue an intensive training program in police juvenile specialization. “Even as things stand, we estimate that our graduates have given professional service to more than 1,200,000 boys and girls.” Since 1952 the Farmers Insurance Group and the Automobile Club of Southern California have also supported the SC Institute financially.

One of the pioneers who introduced the study of American literature to our universities was a man named Dr. Louis Wann. The study of American literature has also spread through Canada, although, to the best of my knowledge, England has not yet adopted the subject. Dr. Thompson studied at Toronto University in Canada, and was instructor at one of the colleges at the University of Mana-toba before he joined the faculty at .S.C. He is currently teaching several courses in English. The noon readings are sponsored by the English department and are open to all interested students and the general public.

In 1946 he set up a psychological clinic at the California Babies’ and Childrens’ Hospital. Here he developed a technique of letting children express their innermost feelings by manipulating puppets in their own plays. As “Psychology on TV” was such a success. Dr. Harvey “hopes these television lectures will help a few more people accept the fact that our minds and personalities can be understood . . . that people can be helped by this new science to a better understanding of themselves and therefore, a happier, more productive life.” Bough Spots “Because children are our main avenue in maintaining our cultural heritage, in reaching our social ideals and goals, we have to be in a position to.help them over the rough spots in life.” Students interested in being dn the show and getting a unit should go to the Extension Division of University College.

Class Awaiting Final Approval By Darlene Hall A new one unit non-compulsory orientation course for lower division students might go into the curriculum next fall, according to a resolution passed Friday noon by a Senate-faculty committee. The resolution, which has been underway for the past two years, will be presented to By Norm Nager Construction of the $6 million sports arena will begin by the end of 1955 and the arena should be finished in time for Troy’s big basketball games next spring County Supervisor Kenneth Hahn disclosed Friday. Supervisor Hahn, recently chos en as president of the Coliseum Commission, startled the city Thursday with his concrete plans for a 22,000 seat arena located next to the armory in Exposition Park. Parking for 5 to 10,000 cars will also be arranged for, Hahn said, adding that Trojans could use the facilities. He said he will try to get parking along Figueroa and parking lots off Figueroa. First Step The first step, Hahn said, would be approval of the Legislature of finance plans for the arena. Private financing would be used by the commission to build the hall, he said. He wants to extend the present lease o f the col iseum until 1980 or to the life of the revenue bonds ,25 years. The present lease runs out in 1960. Conventions such as in Chicago or New York could be handled in the arena, the supervisor said, as well as basketball games, boxing matches, auto shows, hockey matches, and industrial expositions. Hahn stressed the advantage to SC as well as other colleges of the sports arena for big basket ball tournaments which have previously been held in Madison Square Garden or Kansas City. No Place “There is no good place in California for a good basketball tournament,” Hahn commented. Not only SC, he said, but Pepper dine, Loyola, El Camino, and Southern California high schools would be able to use the facilities. The arena, he said, woulcl not be used for theatrical, musical, or operatic productions. Hahn said the commission would support Greater Los Angeles Plans, Inc. who have been working for a civic auditorium for Los Angeles. 'The arena can be used for wholesome recreational activities,” the supervisor said. “The stadium could be used for the good of the county—to help prevent a lot of juvenile delinquency,” he said. “It would provide something to do for young fellows hanging around with nothing to do,” Hahn sai<^. Hahn who was awarded a Master of Science degree from the SC School of Education in 1952 w&s eelcted in that year to represent the area of the county in which the university lies. Previous to his election to county supervisor he served three terms in' the Los Angeles City Council. the University Curriculum Committee the first week in March, according to ASSC President Bill Van Alstyne. Purposes of the course are to promote better scholarship, encourage greater patriotism and feeling of responsibility toward the university, and to familiarize students with the facilities of the university. "A good per cent of students come here with two misconceptions in mind. One—scholastic standards are low and two—SC is a private business out to make money,” Van Alstyne said. Meet Weekly The course will be for credit and will meet once a week. The committee has planned study-topics to cover most phases of the university program. . "Higher Education in Democracy” will cover the reasons for citizens to be educated and the responsibilities of citizenship in democracy. George Watson, associate professor of philosophy, will lectur* on scholarship. Resources of the university will be outlined. A lecture on university finances by Robert \ D. Fisher, vice president of finance, will explain to students where the money comes from and where it goes in the university program. Only 51% of the university finance j comes from tuition. Van Alstyne said. More Topics Student personnel services and student activities and government will be outlined. Dr. Herman J. Sheffield, director of admissions, will explain admission standards. “Career Opportunities and University Development” will be presented by Alfred Jacobs, assistant professor of psychology, and Dr. John E. Fields, vice president of development. Other topics are “SC and Western Society and Student’s Responsibilities and Moral Values.” The Senate-Faculty committ includes Van Alstyne, Jeri Blankenship, Orb Powell, Jim Barber, Paul E. Hadley, Dean Tracy E. Strevey, and othe~ faculty members.

In addition, imprisonment or fines may be levied before deportation. Forms are available in the Foreign Students office, 822 SU. Course Evaluation Test Taken by 500 by Carl Strobel More than 500 students in 20 classes have already acted as guinea pigs in an experimental test of the Greater U’s class evaluation questionnaire.. According to ASSC President Bill Van Alstyne, more than 30 instructors have already volunteered their classes in an effort to perfect a questionnaire that will give voice to student criticism of texts, courses, exams, and teaching techniques. “We’re quite pleased with the reaction we’re getting from everyone,” said Steve Mulhollen, Course Evaluation Committee chairman. They Like It "The instructors liked it very much and the students seemed to enjoy taking it,” Mulhollen said English Professor William H. Davenport called the questionnaire "both fair and penetrating,” saying it covered every possible angle from both the students’ and teachers’ viewpoints. "The questionnaire should be of great value to instructors by showing them aspects of their teaching they haven’t even considered,” Davenport said. Mulhollen said that every in-! structor he asked readily counted to using their classes the experiment. Results of t questionnaire will be returned the instructors early next sem ter, Mulhollen added. Get Good Ideas "I like to know what the cl thinks about my course, Ocoasi ally you get very good ideas fro questionnaires such as these,” bert F. Craig, professor of bus ness administration, commented. Van Alstyne explained that t' tests were being conducted on purely experimental basis wi the ultimate intention of publis ing a freshmen guide to classe like the one used at Harva University. He said one class of 70 studen was almost unanimously in fav of such a booklet. But the results must first checked to find if students a answering the questions sincer ly and the program must be e panded. The questionnaire asks ah® professor, such as his speech ma: nerisms and his attitudes t ward the course and the student and about the course exams.
