FIGHT AGAIN— TO WIN AGAIN-. FROM OREGON alifornia <JAN FIGHT AGAIN-TO WIN AGAIN— FROM OREGON EGON _l Vol. XII Lo» Angelea, California, Friday, November 19, 1920 No. 31 HENDERSON DEFENDS FOOTBALL TEAM [big rally of YEAR AROUND BLAZING FIRE Pajamarino After Rally Will Be a Weird Proces- Trojans Will Gather on the Campus Wednesday Night By L. K. Stoddart Surpassing anything of its kind held this year, and equaling any rally ever held at the university, the final football rally will give the undefeated Trojan warriors a»royal send-off next Wednesday night at 7:30. Brilliant features will make up an Interesting program added to the usual spirit of all U. S. C. rallies. During the entire rally the ' traditional bonfire will light up the heavens with volumes of flames. This bonfire is a yearly occurrences just before the biggest game of the season. The freshmen, who are always scheduled to build it, are going to make it the largest ever, according to Lowell Troutman, president of the class. The famous little green caps so becoming to the first year men are to be burned in efigy, marking their last appearance on the campus. This will make an impressive scene enjoyed by the class of 1924 ln particular. Bert Smith Speaks ’ After these preliminary “doings" are over a very clever and entertaining speaker in the person of Bert Smith will address the assembly on phases of the current big game. According to Gwynn Wilson, he needs no further introduction than his already famous reputation as a “peppy" speaker. The band will be present in all its glory and will add materially to the large volume of noise that shall floait over the city Wednesday evening. Songs, as well as yells will be featured and the yell leaders will join in urging each and every student to know— WELL, their Alma Mater. This Is really an essential as a good impression on the thousands that will attend the game at Paddock field will certainly be desired by every U. S. C. student. “In order to co-operate with the yell leaders a definite knowledge of all U. S. C. yells and songs is necessary,” said Kennedy, one of the yell leaders. Pajamarino After Rally Immediately following the rally the pajamarino will be held, when men garbed in night clothing of all colors will wind their way in and out of the crowd, to finally halt at the edge of the large bonfire. Several skits will be included In the evening's entertainment, one put on by the Dental College, one by the College of Law, another by the freshmen. The nature of these skits is a deep, dark secret which, if it were revealed, would spoil many a pleasant surprise for the evening’s frolic. The freshman ten-piece orchestra will add several “jazz" numbers between the acts. The football team will be there en masse and will be Introduced to the crowd by the yell leaders. This rally will mark the close of a very successful season on the gridiron for U. S. C. BRUNSWIG 10 SPEAK AT CHAPEL ON MONDAY Mr. Brunswig, president of the Alliance Francaise, will speak In the chapel at 1:15 Monday on varlouB phases of Franoo-Ainerlcan relationships. This will be the first of a series of five or six lectures to the students of the French department of U. S. C., who are all expected to be present. Mr. Brunswig, who was identified with the meetings of the Peace Conference, and has a keen interest in the University of Southern California, invites all students interested in this subject to attend the lectures. tEVAMPED KAT, I ASTRAL REPORT WILL BURS! OUT TELLS OF NEW MYSTERY CLUB Wampus, that screeching, tearing little Thomas Pussy so dear to the hearts of U. S. C. students, will debut for the season of 1920 next Thursday. At least that is the plan at the present tlm. Wamp will Jump merrily Into being at the big game. In fact Wamp will almost be a big game name number. It will come along with the rest of the other good things such as turkey, cranberry sauce, an’ pumpkin pie —oh, boy! Wampus will contain several very stragetic pictures, a number of Jokes and many attempts at free verse. In fact, it is freely predicted that Wampus this year will surpass anything so far expected from the so-called funny men of this campus. This year the Wamp will be under the able steering of Paul Vee Greene, famous the world over for his “Hit or Miss" in the Trojan. “ALkyhol” Wesson, who is personal advertising manager for Greene in the Trojan, is Pee Vee's cats paw, or right paw, or tail or something. “Gosh Darn” Ashbaugh, the guy who is supposed to advertise the Wampus, is the boy who is mounting the halyards or rather skinnning the cat. Al Rogers, Lang Felton and Phil Farman have all contributed certain wild tales and yarns to the kat. In fact, when you gaze at the pussy next Thanksgiving dig deep for quarter—lt is time to act. PLANS BEGUN FOR SENSIBLE DRESS PARADE A great opportunity for all ex-service men and those interested in the safeguarding of the nation for the future, will be given at 11:40 Monday, in the student body offices in the Journalism Building. Be there—and see what the nation has in store for youl “Dress Right" Is the latest slogan. The proper wearing apparel for every oocasion, the right colors to combine with each other and the personal peculiarities of the individual student, and the advanced spring styles are to be the subjects of the big “How to Dress" exhibit to be staged on the campus soon by the classes in advertising, in co-operation with the J. W. Robinson company, of Mrs. Kingsbury, advertising manager for Robinson’s, the art classes of the university, the Trojan, and the students generally. “The well dressed man or woman is the one who is dressed appro|.ri-ately for the occasion,” said Mrs. Kingsbury In discussing plans with the ad class yesterday. Men are also interested in matters of apparel, Mrs. Kingsbury thinks, and are as entitled to be told what tie to wear with each particular suit and whether _ their overcoats should be “pinchback, as a girl Is to be told that she should not wear high heels on a hiking trip or an evening dress to class. The demonstrations will be varied and as realislc as the nature of the show will permit. Besides portraying the proper garment, the right colors and the appropriate styles, there will be horrible examples of the wrong thing, as it Is done in institutions ot higher learning as well as elsewhere. The idea, said Mrs. Kingsbury, is to call the attention of careless students to the matter of appropriate dressing so that they may not be thrown into the embarrassing positions of going ^Vongly dressed when a little thought might make them proper. Models will probably be chosen at random by a committee from the ad^ vertlslng classes, and will consist of both men and women. Good looking girls and men who "look like some body” will he especially In demand. The “Sensible Dress Parade Is strongly approved by ^sldent Bovard, who haB stated that he (onsid ers the Idea of real practical value, by Miss Biles, dean of women who Is enthusiastic about the possibilities of auch a movement, and by other mem bers of the faculty. The committee will consist of the student president. Gwynn Wilson; (irace Cooper, A B. S. president; Miss niles. Miss Beers, Miss York and Mr Goodnow from the faculty, and Flor- I ence Gilbert. . . * As the support of the entire student bodv Is expected, the exhibition will be held during .he school day prob-ablv at 11:40 and at the > hut. J ne da e has not been definitely set. The co-operation of such a company b“ *s? 'hC kCZT *&*» dressers and similar aid. and with the I co-operation of their advertising and publicity facilities Strange and Unfinished Ouija Message Advises Inquirers to Attend Soph Meeting Another club has been added to the 57 odd U. S. C. social organizations. Much secrecy hovers over the birth of the new club, but the Trojan, never ceasing in its efforts to find out what is happening on ths campus, has resorted to the ouija board and, as a result, is in a position to "dish out the news.” According to ouija, the new club will be known as the S. H. Club, or the galloping Dominoes Club. Juat what the former name means ouija would not divulge, but among the poBibllltles are Social Half-hour Club, Sewing Handkerchief Circle, Safe and Honest Club (comprised of only those men on the campus that would make suitable companions) or the Skip and Hop Club. Just what could be meant by the Galloping Dominoes Club Is beyond the province of Trojan writer’s understanding. Asked what the purposes of the club •°re, ouija answered, “To promote so clal lntercource between students of the University and to make possible—” There ouija stopped and would not finish the sentence tn spite of repeated pleas. Ouija, however, was willing to name those connected with the new organization. £he gave out the officers as follows: President, Mansford Barnes; vice-president, Lucile Davis; secretary, Dorothy Lane; and treasurer, Berg Lion. Ab a concrete example of how secretly the organization has been working, ouija gave out that the club was of such a mysterious nature that even the members of the club themselves were unaware of the existence of the S. H. or Galloping Dominoes Club. Members of the club, said ouija, are Hugh Miller, Willard Van Dyke, Ar-'liur Nichols, La Verne Harrison, Forrest Blaock, George Don Ashbaugh, June Harris, Dorothy Cole, Margaret Heeb, Cassieta Smith and Evelyn Griffin (errors in spelling due to limitations of ouija board). In the course of the procedure ouija suddenly took a hesitative mood, and declared that there was nothing more to it. “That is all that I have to say," was the blunt statement; “If you want further information, attend the next sophomore meeting." The mystery seems to be on Its way toward solution as the said sophomore meeting takes place next Monday at 12:30, and furthermore, all the members of the club are sophomores. Whether fhe S. H. Club Is something dangerous for the freshmen, a sewing circle, or a society organization will probably be made known at the meeting. MEN'S GLEE CLUB ELEOTS OFEiDERS Officers to carry on the business of the Men's Glee Club were elected Wednesday evening following the rehearsal In the College of Music. Wed ley Freeman, who was a member of the Glee Club three years ago during Its war activity, was chosen as president. The other officers elected are: Howard Coy—Vice-president. Harold Bridegroom—Secretary. LeRoy Wolfe—Treasurer. Carl Spring—Librarian Archie Thornton, Reginald Banks and Carl Springer were selected as the constitution committee. Wesley Freeman said: "The Glee Club expects to have a most successful season. We have some splendid material, and will not have to contend with the many disadvantages of for mer years." NON-FRAT MEN MEET— FORM FOOTBALL TEAM Exactly eleven men turned out at the meeting, to form a non-frat football team, held Wednesday at 12:30. Berg Lion presided until Ivan Waterman was unanimously elected captain. Plans were made for practicing slg nals In the near future at Exposition Park Each man present signed up. stating his weight and the position which he played Waterman will ar range some signals which he will teach the men at the next meeting, to be held Friday at 12:30, unless there Is a conflicting meeting RAMBLES IN SPAIN" PLEASES BIG GROUP IN THE Y HUT By Chauncey With the clicking of castenets, the tuneful music of Spain and the graceful movements of characteristic Spanish dances by Senor and Senora Zorra-qulnos, premier dancers of the famous San Gabriel Mission Play, “Rambles ln Spain” was presented at the “Y" hut yesterday at the 11:40 period as the first of the series of programs under the direction of the Spanish department. The president of the University, members of the faculty of the Spanish department with expansive smiles, and Professor Roy E. Schulz, head of that department with a pink rose-bud In his buttonhole, gave the occasion distinction. Ushers and ticket takers were costumed in characteristic^ gorgeous colors of the country. The coolness of the darkened auditorium and the artistry of the colored slides harmonized with reminiscences of the beauties of a trip through Southern Spain as pr-sented by Mrs. Hugh Lowther, who is a member of the Spanish department. “Some of the pleasant places in which to while away time" In Toledo, a fountain ln Cordova from which a young lady may drink If she wishes to find a husband, the Moorish architecture of the Alhambra and the balconies and flowers which line streets of Granada were presented by Mrs. Lowther. She quoted romantic Spanish poetry and described the tinkling music of playing fountains and told as well of the little children of Granada who must toil long hours to make the lace of that place. A “Jota,” a Spanish dance and a Moorish dance were presented by the Sr. and Sre. Zorraquinos on a stage set as a Spanish street. Senora Zorraquinos was dressed In a colorful costume of flowers and red and black. Her partner wore the costume of a Torerro, or bullfighter. Bernhard Klng-ham, a University studenut, played the piano accompanlmemt. Th next of the Spanish series, to be presented December 18, is to be “Folk Songs of the Americas,” by Miss Eleanor Hague. Miss Hague is a Pasadena resident and a recognized authority on Negro, Creole, Indian and French Canadian folk lore and will sing numbers characteristic of each type. INTEREST INCREASES Welch, Williamson and Hori Display Best Form to Date Matches In the round-robln tournament are being played off In good style. Most of the men who have en tered are playing each day and if these same men will only “stick by tbe ship" for another week this tourn ament will be a big success The few tnat are not doing their part towards playing off their requirements will receive little sympathy at the end of the allotted two weeks, according to the authorities. The men are asked by "Reggie” Olds, president of the tennis club, to tak»-1>alns when cbalklnir up their results on the score board In the gymnasium. “Get your scores In the right column so we can read tbe results at the end of two weeks,” he said Si* men have entered in the last few days, swelling the total to twenty-six entrants. Some good material Is showing up, not only for the tennis club but as prospects for this year’s ’vsrslfy team Welch and Williamson have displayed good form to date, with a representative from the land of the cherry blossoms, known as Horl, following closely in their footsteps Others are Improv ing as the play progresses, and when more matches are played off a closer check can be made. Two brand new nets made their appearance on the courts yesterday, due to the efforts of Mr La Porte Also the heretofore ragged backstops, that resembled a flimsy lace curtain rather than wire, have been fixed up ln good shape, adding much to the convenience of the playerB. Beginning ln the morning and continuing until late afternoon the courts are busy dally, which all goes to show that the spirit of tennis is not lackiug In U. 8. C. YALE AND HARVARD CLASH TOMORROW Arrangements have been made to seat 73,000 people In tlie Yale bowl when Harvard and Yale clash tomorrow All the tickets have been taken by the two universities aud there waa no public sale of tickets. COACH SAYS THAT TEAM IS LOYAL By Charles W. Paddock An article which appeared in yesterday's Trojan, accusing the football men of not training, i ihe worst of its kind that has probably ever been turned into the coDy of the paper. It was a signed article and the man who affixed his signature and demanded its appearance in the paper, simply because it haa been a policy of the Trojan to publish signed articles, failed to think what he was saying. Coach Henderson said yesterday afternoon regarding the article: “Such a policy as was suggested in yesterday’s article is abao-lutely foreign to that which has been pursued since my entrance into the life of the University. “The progress which the University has made during the past two seasons toward clean sportsmanship and real manhood cannot be undermined by the single whimpering of any enemy of the team's welfare. “For, the writer, besides being an ex-member of the team, has no right to criticise the Varsity in the college paper. If he has any suggestions to make, he should come to me. “I know nothing at all which could lead to any semblance of truth regarding the condition which it was stated my men were in. I have always pursued the policy of man-to-man confidence, co-opera* tion and unity between the team and the coaches, and I cannot believe that my men would endanger the trust I have placed in them.” STAR-DELTA MAKES BIG PLANS AT Bl- Petitioning for a chapter of the National American Institute of Electrical Engineers was discussed at the bimonthly meeting of Star Delta, last Wednesday evening. Other business and plans for the future took up the part of the evening left open after a very fine address on “Practical Insurance,” by Mr. M. L. Flucky of Lincoln High. The plans and possibilities of the A. I. E. E. coming to U. S. C. were freely discussed. Plans were also put In motion for a "bang-up” theater party very soon. According to Leonard Biggs, the Star Delt initiation, “covering’’ at least four men, will show the campus a few new wrinkles. The wiring of the field for the big annual pajamarino will be taken care of by ihe Star Deltas, following Gwynn Wilson’s suggestion of the plan. Every active member was present Wednesday, which lllggs points out as a sample of the spirit back of the organization. Very acceptable re freshments "brought up the rear” of the evening. Tbe A. 1. E. E. holds a monthly meeting down town, as well as maintaining a technical library Their advantages' ■ould be at the disposal of a campus chapter, as well as helping to put U. 8. C. on the map In technical circles all over the country. RED CROSS CAMPAIGN PROGRESSING WELL “I’ve done my bit. I've fought a bit, I've lost a bit in France. I’m smllln' yet, I'm glad, you bet, They’ve left a bit to dance.” To the "bit o’ Yank,” the great American Red Cross dedicates Its fourth roll call, extending from November 11 to 25. Each membership helps to put the roll call over the top of its quota of *100,000 for the Los Angeles chapter. In the University competition for memberships. our strongest rival seems to be 8. B. U. C where the mark has been said to exceed )5000. The determina tion of U. 8 C. to pass the 8 B. U C. quota, is apparently being realized according to the reports from the A. W 8 Red Cross booth The silver cup offered by Mr. Fred Miller of tha California Theater as a prize to the Institution securing the most memberships, Is acting as a stimulus for earnest work ln Ihe U. 8. ('. drive. Failure to win the cup would be a reflection upon the patriotic spirit of U 8. C. In comparison to her numerous university successes. There are only a few more days left In which to decide a success or failure for U. 8. C. and every membership helps. KARLE DELIGHTS STUDENTS WITH RICH TENOR Negro Songs Popular — Acoustics of Chapel Un-fayorable By Marquis Busby Treating U. 8. C. students to the first big musical fest of the year, Theodore Kurle, famous American tenor, appeared In a concert given under the auspices of Lance and Lute, at the chapel, Wednesday afternoon. Singing under very adverse acoustic conditions, Karle held his audience through the entire program, the soft, haunting Negro songs being Ihe most popular. Karle may easily be ranked as one of the two greatest tenors on the concert stage. McCormack, the idol, has his laurels in danger. While the great Irishman has a poise and finish that the younger man lacks, Karle has youth and personality, combined with a voice of almost lyric beauty. Sang at Metropolitan Few young American singers make the Metropolitan house In early youth, but Karle sang with Geraldine Farrar, while still ln his early twenties. Theodore Karle Is a native of Seattle, and In hla college days played football with our own famous "Gloomy Gus” Henderson. It was somewhat of a disappoint-mentment that the difficult “II Mio Tesoro lntanto” was omitted from the program. A much simpler, popular selection was substituted The old favorite, “Oft In the Stilly Night," was sung with feeling and power, as was that perennial concert favorite, “I Hear You ('ailing Me." Negro 8ongs Popular Undeniably the Negro songs were the most popular They were given with delightful comedy touches In tbe soft darkey dialect. Space forbids the mention that Al-rt Klein, the accompanist, deserves He vied with the star for first honors. Better results, However, couid be obtained from a better piano. The Rachmaninoff selection was especially well given USHERS WANTED FOR THANKSGIVING GAME Earle Hazelton, head ushsr, urges all men interested In ushering at the U. 8. C.-Oregon game, Thanksgiving Day, to sign up on the bulletin board opposite Room 14 at once.
