tL South California <JAN Vol. XI Los Angeles, California, Friday, January 15, 1920 No. 44 IHEMEOF Y TALK Leaders of' Intermediate Boys to Be Chosen From Members of Y. M. C. A. The opportunity for training in leadership was the theme of an address given after the Y. M. C. A. cabinet meeting on Wednesday evening, by Tom Caldwell, Los Angeles City Y. M. C. A. director of junior boys’ work. Tlie importance of continuing such work as was carried on by Professor La Forte before the war among a hundred boys of the University district, was emphasized. Mr. Caldwell outlined a program for developing the work among the boys of the community, including ten-year-old boys and those of the intermediate age. Professor La Porte gave a talk upon his work with a hundred boys in the University gymnasium and outlined the year’s work of the Y. M. C. A. The leaders of the boys’ work are to be “Y” members. “Start now to build your character,” was the plea Kenneth Monroe, ’22, made before the Aristolelian Literary Society Tuesday evening in a brief address on character moulding. He said: “One does not think of a child as strong unless he can stand alone and walk alone. Many a man never becomes able to stand alone morally. A strong man will not be swerved from what he knows to be the right path by the example or wheedling or threats of others. Associating with strong characters is a great factor in becoming strong, and no man is strong he cannot be depended on to regain of the same opinion for twenty-four hours. It is a common mistake to think only of forceful qualities as taking strength of character, but remember elasticity is an element of length of character, as ,it is in strength of metal. A chain is not strong if it has a weak link, neither is a man’s character. The wreck of a career is often jtoe to overconfidence in some unquestionably strong points to the neglect jjj a weak point that finally brings faster. Develop your weak points n order that your character may gain symmetrical strength. Every person *n college should do his utmost to eveloj) strength in his own character 11(1 do not forget an oak does not gain its strength over night. Start ^or the building of a noble char* < *jr i8 a process that calls for time; is not the fruit of a day." e , Program was concluded by sev-r f 8,>ort talks by the members and toism by the censor. STUDENT BODY WHEEDLED BY UNESCAPED CONVICTS By Milton Inman The quintessence of ultra-sensational journalism, “The Yellow Dog,” made its annual visitation to the Trojan campus yesterday, in the wee small hours of the morning. With glaring headlines and biting sarcasm it made its influence felt on everyone within the halls of learning, even to the so-called intellectual bugs, who usually spend the morning in deep, but doubtful, discourse. Silas Perkins, Esq., editor of the blond sheet, president of the junior class, pledge to one of them there secret societies, late of San Quentin, brought some of his convict friends from up-state to rob the outraged public of their father’s hard-earned dimes. To satisfy the parole law, they presented the said public with a sample copy of their paper. The learned professors, doctors, instructors, teachers, assistants, etc., had considerable difficulty in conducting their classes due to the diligence 011 the part of the students in the pursuit of subtler learning, as exemplified in the columns of the “yearly yelp.” Moreover, the students particularly in upper division, felt that they were being cheated of their rights, when a professor stole an enraptured glance at the second page. Old Dame Rumor expressed the frank opinion that the “Yellow Dog” would positively not make its appearance during the present year. It will fall upon the junior pledges of another year to outdo the present ones in uncharacteristic American college humor. Everyone took a hurried glance over the pages to ascertain if the “Yellow Dog” had picked upon him or her to receive its just wrath. A sigh or a groan was the accompanying action. Many, upon staring at the yellow and black for thirty seconds, and upon closing the shocked sense organs, according to the precepts of the psychologist, saw a perfect blue print reproduction. Many scholars, who come at ten o’clock, raised the whelp of “Where, oh where has my little dog gone,” when they found they were unable to procure a copy of the coveted sheet. “It is naughty, but O, Boy!” the more fortunate ones would exclaim t>etween a long pause after reading a joke or two and turning to the next one to receive another thrill. The one thing which redeems it in the light of all American humorists, is that it purports to be “100 per cent American.” Nothing more need be said. E L Choral Working on Oratorio. “The Holy City” to Be Presented in Spring Tennis Courts Scene Of Combat By Carl Farman I love to hit the tennis ball It is so light and free, And if I hit is straight enough I’ll join the club, you see. NON-FRAT MEN COMPLETE RECENT ORGANIZATION With the college courts as a battleground and with 32 aspirants to the Women’s Tennis Club of U. S. C. striving for supremacy, the round robin tournament for membership Is now in full swing. Students passing the courts from foggy morning until after the shades of night have been pulled down may see all classes of coeds in action, from those showing championship form to the beginners in the noble art of love forty. Tennis is more than ever the most popular women’s sport at the University, and judging from the ability of those in the tourney, there is little doubt that a high class team will represent U. S. C. in any intercollegiate games played in 1920. It is safe to predict, too, that the new court now under construction for the exclusive use of the women students will be inconstant use as soon as completed. As only six of the 32 contestants will be admitted to the club, there is keen rivalry for the honor of being one of the chosen few and the results In keeping with the recent movement in leading colleges fostering the organization of non-fraternity men to enjoy fellowship together, the non-fraternity men of U. S. C. met Wednesday in a meeting called by Claude Reeves. The following temporary officers of the new organization are: President, Roy Johnson; secretary and treasurer, Glen Grant; basketball captain, Kenneth Townsend. A basketball team, “The All-Stars,” is to be organized to compete with fraternity teams. The first regular meeting of non-frat men will be held in the chapel annex, room 18, on Friday morning, January 16, at 11:40. (Continued on Page 4) ‘FRAT’ LOCKERS MAKE CONVENIENT ADDITION Attention of the students is called to the new “frat” lockers recently installed in the basement near the entrance to the cafeteria. Each of these lockers contains not one, but seven compartments, six being somewhat smaller than the regular lockers and one being much larger and contaihing a rod at the top for coathangers. Each small compartment has a lock, the key to which is u pass key to the large locker, but not to any of the other small ones, 4ny six students wishing to get together may secure, by applying for one of these frat lockers, a fair sized private locker apiece and also a safe place to hang their overcoats. The rent is $4.50 a semester. “One hundred voices,” the slogan for the University choral has been almost realized. Over eighty students meet every Wednesday afternoon at five o’clock for practice, but the number, it is hoped, will increase to one hundred. Besides the regular weekly anthem for chapel, the choral has started work on an oratorio, “The Holy City,” to be presented sometime in the spring. There is much good material for solo parts, but the choruses will be greatly improved by the addition of more voices. Particularly is that true of the men’s parts. There are good voices among the men at the University, which would be appreciated in the choral. Professor Cogswell is very enthusiastic about the presentation of the oratorio and promises as many engagements as the choral may desire. The choral offers an opportunity for instructive work for all students, and gives a great opportunity to those who are interested in music but do not study it while in the university. The choral also has a social side that is by 110 means to be overlooked. Wesley Freeman, the president of the organization, and Professor Cogswell are desirous of meeting any students who may be interested in the choral and urge that those persons see them as soon as possible, so that the work on the oratorio may proceed as rapidly as planned. FACULTY SCIENCE CLUB MEETS TUESDAY EVENING The Faculty Science Club will meet on Tuesday evening, January 20, at eight o’clock, in the Biological Lecture Room. Miss Gertrude York, of the Department of Home Economics, will present a paper on “Some Recent Developments in the Science of Nutrition.” Dr. Weatherby will lead the discussion. Students and faculty members are invited to attend. CATHERINE V. BEARS, Secretary. LE CERCLE FRANCAIS Friday afternoon, at 3:15, Le Cercle Francais will hold its last meeting of the semester at the Chi Delta Phi sorority house, 908 West Thirty-fifth Place. I11 addition to the musical and other numbers on the program, Professor Riddle has secured the services of Mrs. Borton, a dramatic reader, who will give several selections in French for the entertainment of the Cercle. SPECIAL NOTICE Important meeting of Spooks and Spokes in room 221, at 11:40, Friday, January 16. All members cu*ne!
