fi? South California '<JAN mc k»L ™1 "^n Vol. XI Los Angeles, California, Tuesday, January 27, 1920 No. 49 NEW U.S.C. COLLEGE ORGANIZED FIFTY MILLION 10 [I U. S. C. Professors Anticipate Raise in Salary Through Liberality of Capitalist TO BENEFIT U. S. C. General Educational Board Aids Colleges by Providing Funds for New Buildings Professors at U. S. C. at last have cause to anticipate a raise in salary and a possibility of earning at least half as much as ironworkers or automobile men, for John D. Rockefeller recently presented his General Educational Board with $50,000,000.00. In presenting the gift, Mr Rockefeller suggested that part of the money be used in raising the salaries paid to college professors throughout the United States. May Benefit U. S. C. Professor Montgomery was asked yesterday if U. S. C. would get any of the sum. He replied that U. S. C. would undoubtedly apply for a portion of the money, but that as yet no definite action had been taken on the matter. Mr. Rockefeller founded the General Educational Board several years ago for the purpose of helping out col-#8. He has endowed the organization with millions of dollars every year. The Board is allowed to spend the interest on the money as it sees fit. A large portion of the fund has been loaned for construction of new college buildings.

Students Give Knock Out To H.C.L. By Paul V. Greene This fellow whose initials are H. C. L. has been one of the most trying propositions this year for many U.S.C. students, and he is being grappled in different ways by different students. But even though all things necessary to life except air have gone airplaning with old man H. C. L., this is not the first year that the lowly dime has been counted as riches by the college student. In fact, after their army experience at thirty dollars per, many fellows can stretch a dollar bill over quite an area, for in the army one could have a whale of a time on almost nothing. Of course, the khaki is not the pass word as it was during the war, yet most fellows are profiting by their army experience—and actually saving. H. C. L. is having a hard time to starve the students who work in the eating places around the campus and in the college cafeteria. And for overtime, and as much overtime as can be put in is allowed. Two fellows are earning their tuitions by baling the paper that accumulates every day in the buildings. This requires only fifteen or twenty minutes a day. Another two have been keeping the tennis courts in shape, and in this way have been warding off all uppercuts that old man H. C. L. may aim at them. Many men have taken advantage of the-University’s offer to work on the athletic field. At most any time during the week days men can be found working on Bovacd field. They are paid by the hour and the hours add up very quickly. When the pay envelope gallops around to these fellows, old H. C. L. trots off to a safe distance. Numerous law students have jobs down town at law offices, at meager salaries, to be sure, but at the same time they are being helped in two ways — financially while going to school, and gaining experience for the days after being graduated. Both men and women students hold jobs in down town stores working after school every day and all day Saturdays. Every little bit helps, they believe. Long-legged H. C. L. has to hide his face when he hears of the several students who play musical instruments in theaters, or of others who sing at the same places. These students are sharp enough to knock him flat. The younger generation of Americans is receiving instructions every evening at the city playgrounds from a number of U.S.C. students. Not COURSES IN ACCOUNTING AND BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION GIVEN By Stephen A. Black STUDENTS who are preparing for work in the field of commerce are enthusiastic regarding the announcement made recently by Professors Hunt and Marston to the effect that a College of Commerce and Business Administration is to be organized at the University of Southern California. In the east, one of the most popular of all the colleges of any university is the College of Commerce. In the Uni* versity of Boston alone, there are over two thousand students enrolled in this practical branch, while Harvard, Northwestern and Wisconsin have very strong colleges. In keeping with the trend of the times and popular demand, our own Alma Mater has decided to start the next college semester right and satisfy the demands of a large number of students. This college will supersede in general for the first semester, the present Economics Department. Courses in foreign trade and commerce will be offered. The entire course is not complete for publication but will be announced in a few days. However, Prof. Marston announces that the courses in accounting, salesmanship, and Business Administration will be continued for the present, while new courses will be offered in Economics I and Public Finance. New Courses Offered Next fall a large number of new courses will be offered with new instructors at their heads. Practical business men, who know the teaching game as well as the practical side, are being secured. They will give courses leading to secretarial positions, high school teaching, administrative work and civil service managerial positions. Degrees will be given for a staisfac-tory completion of the work. A degree of Bachelor of Business Administration will be given for a four years’ course in school and one year practical work in some large co-ope/ative concern under the supervision of some* faculty member. Degrees of Bachelor of Arts or of Science in tho College of Commerce will be given to those who complete only the four years’ course. Special emphasis is laid on the practical nature of the work. A large number of trips of an inves-tigatorial nature will be made to the large business concerns of the city. To Open Night School Next fall a night school will also be opened downtown, in which special attention will be paid to clerks and other people in the business world who desire to further their knowledge and chances for advancement. Students expecting to enroll in this new College are requested to express their intention to the registrar so as to give the heads of the department a chance to know how many desire the various courses.
