W. C. A. TO WORK WITH SOCIOLOGY DEPARTMENT H- W. C. A. is planning a social service meeting under the supervision of Frieda Martens. Miss Gertrude j Pentland and Miss Caroline Ware are to (peak. In the future, the social service committee will combine, so far as pogfiible in practical work, with the sociology department. Text Book Did Not Lie After All---Reporter Alas! Another hope of aspiring genius dashed to fragments as numerous as those of a hot electric bulb when it meets a cold stream of water. “To the experienced news gatherer, the police station blotter is crowded with possible stories. Behind the commonplace accident often lurks a striking course or a round of mystery waiting for his investigation.” Clang! Bang! Dang! The University police patrol ratttled past. Bump! The Harrington and Frankenburg "Essentials in Journalism” fell to the floor as the “Trojan” reporter sprang to her dressing table, and dressed for action. Her heart beat furiously as she gazed down upon the prospective story. Nothing was visible from the outside of the “wagon.” What poor wretch was being jarred about within? Did he or she or they re- * pent of some hasty crime? Or did a sullen heart beat only for revenge? Choking with intense energy, the reporter ran down the steps. A human interest story full of sobs was racing down the street ahead of her. Metropolitan dailies needed some change from war stuff and would pay well for a regular go-get-’em feature. They would ask for others. Fame stared the reporter in the face and dazzled her. She hastened to the police station. The patrol stood outside. She could see no one as she stepped across the street. She dodged over and walked past the entrance. No one was in sight. Something grim about the station made her light heart sink into her white shoes and pinch her toes. She slid past —and went up the street. Calling herself an idiot, she gamely went back. Fame should not depart so nonchalantly! A man in shirt sleeves stood be-for the desk at the entrance. “Where did the patrol go just now?” she asked timidly. “Our wagon? Over on East Jefferson,” he answered. “What was the matter? Do you mind telling me?” ”Aw, nothin’,” he bit off. “False alarm?” guilelessly. “Naw, we went after the cap’n.” Fame, a la Diamond Dick, bit the dust. BUSY WEEKS ON FOR LOCAL Y. M BIG MEETING WED. Class Presidents to Make Speeches Tomorrow— ‘Set Up’ Conference Oct. 12, 13 NOTICE The Trojan staff candidates and members will all meet ln the Journalism building tomorrow at 12:30 o’clock. Attendance is absolutely necessary. One of the most important meetings of the Y. M. C. A. this year will be held Wednesday at 11:40 o’clock in the chapel, where speeches by the presidents of the various liberal arts classes will be delivered. Clifford Henderson will have charge of the meeting, and will introduce J. Paul Beale, “frosh” president, who will speak on “What the Y. M. C. A. should mean to the incoming Freshman”; Ralph Heywood, who occupies the presidential chair of the sophomore class, will say a few words about “The Reputation of U. S. C.”; and Harry Griffin, the senior president, will reminisce on “Three Years Experience.” The “set up” conference is to be held in Dr. Hill’s cabin back of Sierra Madre Friday and Saturday. This is for cabinet members only, and is very important, as plans for the season are to be discussed, problems solved, and details arranged. Incidentally a rousing good time is promised. The regular prayer meeting and song service is to be held Thursday evening at seven o’clock in East Hall. Those attending will remain at the college for a short time, and then all will proceed to the University M. E. church, where a special service has been arranged. PHARMACY STUDES TO JOIN HUSKIES Many of the students at the Col-legs of Pharmacy are expected to join the ranks of Trojan athletes, as a lot of the old fellows are back. Sixty-five students are enrolled at present and more are expected to enter. Among the gridiron stars who are registered at Pharmacy is William Robbins, former football end at Whittier College. William Delany, former captain of the Los Angeles Junior College eleven, is also registered and may be persuaded to join the varsity ranks. Inter-class contests are expected, as the senior and junior classes are strong. The U. S. C. band and orchestra can probably count on the Pharmics, as a number of them are interested ln music. The faculty at the College of Music will give an informal reception on the lawn for the students, Thursday afternoon. Ancient Greek Waiting Men lake Notice! Albert Croissant, a last semester’s graduate, was an alternate when the drafted men were sent to American Lake last Thursday. When one patriot turned out to be an hour man and slightly behind the time, Croissant was chosen to wait, Damon-like, unless it was Pythias who waited for Damon, until the train left before he would know whether his mother would have to set the dinner table for three or for two. Now, Damon (Pythias) was accustomed to waiting, because shoe-shining in those days was mostly just that. Customers wore nothing on their feet but soles, and used their slippers for the present-day purpose with excellent shining results. And even though waiting was so common, when Damon (Pythias) turned up the pair went down in history. But Croissant’s laggardly hero turned up just as the engine whistled. And Bert, who was ready and set to go, went down in the mouth. [Can any of our readers inform us of Damon’s nationality? It is suggested he was a Roman.— Editor.] WORK STARTS ON RODEO ’19 IN A FEW DAYS ARMY GAME IS POSTPONED BY SAN DIEGOANS The game scheduled for next Saturday, October 13, between U. S. C. and the army officers at San Diego has been called off by the army men. Coach Cromwell is scouring the country in an effort to secure a team to oppose his Trojans next Saturday. It is possible that a contest will be arranged Ijetween U. S. C. and the naval reserves at San Pedro. ONLY SIX “FROSH” CAPS ARE NOW ON HAND FROM LAST ORDER; 95 SOLD According to an announcement made yesterday by Paul Beale, president of the freshman class, there are only six frosh capB left from the last order. About 95 caps have been sold. Mr. Beale asks fellows who have not yet ordered their caps to leave 90 cents and the required sizes with him immediately. The caps may be secured at the treasurer’s office three days after they are ordered. Failure to Pay for Itself Last Year Causes Delay on This Year’s Book MANY COPIES UNSOLD Meeting of Staff to be Held Tuesday Evening, Professor Hopkins Will Speak The large debt incurred by the class of ’18 in the publishing of their El Rodeo which has been holding up work on the production of this year’s book is soon to be removed according to John A. Ware, manager of last year’s annual, and as a result, work on the new publication is expected to begin within a few days. According to the seniors, the failure of El Rodeo to pay for itself was due to the fact that many students left the University before the book was issued, thus leaving the class with many unsold copies on hand. The elimination of advertising, it is claimed by the seniors, also had much to do with the causing of financial embarrassment. President Bovard has refused to allow this year’s management to sign any contracts for El Rodeo work until all debts have been cleared -up. As soon as last year’s matters have been settled, contracts for the photographic work and the printing of the annual will be let. In accordance with the policy of other universitties in cutting down the size of their publications, the management of El Rodeo ’19 has decided to make their book considerably smaller than that of the preceding class. A meeting of the staff will be held Tuesday evening. Professor Hopkins of the department of journalism will outline the plans for the coming year’s work. Associate editors have been announced by Editor Haight as follows: Harold Tucker, joke department; Laura Calkins, upper classmen; Ruth Hubbard, graduate department; Arthur Will, sports; Byron Hovey, men’s organizations; Roy Bose, honor societies; Leland O’Connell, fraternities; Isabel Work, sororities; Marie Briggs, women’s athletics; Margaret Shamel, women’s organizations; Myrtle Pape, seniors; Zemula Pope, juniors; Jennie Ifeterson, dramatics; Marian Neuls and Arthur Taylor, college year; E. Dow Hoffman, forensics; Martin Miller, publications; George Gansner, house clubs; Irene St. Pierre, El Rodeo staff; Etta Peterson, faculty. College editors will be elected in a short time.
