How free are people in foreign countries to discuss world-wide topics? How do they feel toward the United States? What do t h e y think Americans say about them? More than 500 foreign and American students studying in the Southland will attend a series of panel discussions on these topics Saturday, in Founders Hail, according to Dr. Bussell L. Caldwell, associate professor of history. The program is under the auspices of the International Platform Association. "Opportunities of 1he Platform in Other Countries" is the theme of the conference. According to Dr. Caldwell, western reuion president of IPA, the Platform is an open organization dedicated to open public discussion on any time he is told his blood type. White.

At the same students to give blood," said COATIMUNDI DISAPPEARS; PROFESSOR SEEKS FINDER Is there a raccoon-like character sitting in your class answering the professor’s rollcall? It might be the coatimundi who did a disappearing act last Friday. Jack Fulbeck of the English and man and civilization departments reported that he lost his pet coatimundi, a 15-pound brnvn female animal, in the faculty parking lot. He tied the pet to the bumper of his car, and ten minutes later it was gone. . The SPCA reported that an SC student had called its office to find out if anyone had reported a missing pet. The office said no, but the student promised to return the animal that evening. However, Fulbeck said, the finder has not returned it yet. During the summer, Fullbeck went to the Yucatan Jungle in Mexico to hunt repiles and animals. He brought back snakes, squirrels, birds, and the coatimundi. “The coatimundi is a rare pet and will eat just about anything," explained Fulbeck. “But I’m afraid the finder will get so attached to the animal that he will forget to return it." Registration will take place from 11 to 12:15 a.m. in Founders Hall foyer. There is no cost for attendance. An evening dinner at $2.75 per person in Town and Gown at 6 w'ill wind up the session. Reservations may he made through Dr. Caldwell in 409 FH. “Along with problems of free expression and the progress of Platform movements within their respective countries, panelists W'ill discuss the misconceptions foreign people have about the United States,” Dr. Caldwell said. Cites Example He cited the case of Mohinder S. Bedi of India, a graduate of SC who returned to his country and is now back at SC working toward his doctor's degree. “Bedi told me that in India there is strong criticism of American attitude toward color discrimination.” Dr. Caldwell said. “It was hard for people to believe Bed) when he’d explain that the United States has made far greater strides in 75 years for improving minority status than India has in the past 300.” ★ Lunatic Fringe The “lunatic fringe” has again put SC in banner headlines. An unidentified group of immature eggheads has made SC fifth university in the nation to adopt the fad of hanging its football roach in effigy. Other schools in fhe “elite” are Cal, Washington State, University of Washington, and University nf Arizona. SC’s idiot-children didn't go halfway. Not only was Coach Jess Hill hanged in effigy in front of tbe SAF house Ibis weekend, but early yesterday morning a dummy in a blue suit and gray hat was dangling from a telephone pole in front of the Physical Education Building. It's too bad the whole student body has to look bad in the eyes of the public because of an irresposible few. It’s doubly bad because this is the first time a coach has been hanged in effif.v at SC. The action makes Troy appear to be going along with other school’s "hate the coach,” craze because it can think of nothing better to do. Hill has enough problems without having to buck student antipathy. Whenever a coach, whose team is rated high, loses three games by upset (Washington, Minnesota, and Stanford), he's in trouble. When a man's down, no one looks at his merits. It's about time someone did. Hill is the onlv I’CC coach to have won in th.e Rose Bowl since the part was made with the Big 10. He lost only once this year to the Big 10 in regular play (Minnesota). His w'in-loss-tie record is 36-15-1, good in anyone’s book. Whether Ilill will be booted from his job is still in the speculation stage. Surely, there’s been plenty of talk about it. That his position Is shakv Is no reason for him to have been subjected to the disgrace of being hanged in effigy. Hill and the team have two rou gh games to go. In both SC will be the underdog. The team needs all the support it can get. Students, by continuing to back the team, can show Hill they respect him for being the gentleman he is. By maintaining their faith in the team, they can also let the nublic know they have nothing but contempt for the “lunatic fringe.’’ Hangings Sentiment Trojan Clubbers Disgruntled Over Team s Showing By Jim Morad “No comment" is the general attitude on the SC campus concerning the two hangings in effigy of Coach Jess Hill and the rumors that the powerful Trojan Club alumni group are disgruntled over SC’s three losses this year. A fuse that was ignited when SC lost its first game to Washington, and sizzled to the —-—-- danger point with the Minnesota loss, final*y exploded Saturday when a dummy, supposedly Jess Hill, was found hanging trom the SAE house in protest to the Stanford upset. Members of the SAE house have all denied that they took part in the lynching party. No Mlwtnkn Flames from the explosion were still evident yesterday morning when another dummy was lound in front of the PK building. This time there was no mistaking the identity. It was dressed in a blue suit, wore glasses, and its facial characteristics were similar to Hill’s. Yesterday at the Trojan Club luncheon, which was attended by Ixis Angeles sportswrlters and SC alumni, Hill was the target of many questions asked by the sportswrlters. Although most of the questions game. evaded the problem at hand, Mirror-News Sports Kditor Sid Ziff asked Hill if he could honestly say that he got the most out of his material. Hill said he and the coaching staff did. Housing Welcome As Hill entered the room he was given a rousing welcome and a standing ovation by the alumni, hut according to an alumnus present at the affair, the alumni felt differently. He said there was an undercur-' rent of discontent at the tables. Various coaches names were tossed around by certain groups in the club, and there was a general up-in-arms attitude. According to the alumnus, the Trojan Club wanted just one question answered: Why do teams like Notre Dame and UCLA improve w'ith every game while SC becomes inferior with every Thanks Offered by Jani, McMahon for HC Toil History of NSA Tells Background of aradoxical Inception, Rough Course By Harvey Zuckman pe strange paradox of NSA is, that while the associa- This resolution was NSA’s biggest stroke of luck.

Debate Teams Announced For Forensic Tournament Three debate teams will travel to Seattle to represent SC in the Western States Forensics Tournament to be held Nov. 21-23, the forensics department announced yesterday. The teams include Murray Bring and Ron Weintraub, first place winners of last spring’s Pacific Forensic League Tournament in Moscow, Idaho; |- and Bob Croutch and Frank Besag, lower division winners of the Pi Kappa Delta Tournament at Pepperdine in March. The third team, Francine San-gor and Maxine Karpman, will be debating together for the first time this year. Miss Sangor, teamed with Paula Duncan last spring, won first place in lower woman's division at Pepperdine. Miss Karpman, teamed with Bette Dobkirt, took first in upper woman's at the same tournament. At a practice tournament at l»s Angeles City College last Friday and Saturday, th" debate squad recorded 67.5 per cent wins, according to Murray Bring, squad captain. "All teams won at least half of their debates," he said, "Seven out of 10 won at least three-fourths of their contests. I An open letter to our Student Body and Faculty: The 75th Birthday Celebration has come to a close, but not the memories of the hard work of the persons who made It a reality, for they still remain vivid in my mind. I To these persons, both faculty and students, administrators and [ friends, I find no adequate way to thank for their contributions of time and effort. Success is not accomplished b/ one person, hut hy many, working equally hard together. I sincerely hope that we might retain this cooperative spirit and apply it to all of our University’s events for the rest of the year.’ To every student who helped in some way on Homecoming, may I extend my sincere thanks. I only wish I had some way to express my appreciation to each of you personally. Most Sincerely, BOB JANI. Last spring when Bob Jani was selected as Homecoming Chairman by the ASSC Senate, mild controvery arose aliout his ideas. Tha thought of a pageant in the Ct iseutn was viewed (skeptically as w’ere plans for a "Diamond Jubilee" show which “would he just another unsuccessful Tro-lios ..." Over the summer Bob worked with characteristic vigor and compounded an elaborate Homecoming program. When school commenced this fall. Bob selected his large Homecoming committee and away we went. Bob couldn’t have done it alone. Accolades are in order for his capable chairmen and committee members, and certainly for the remainder of the student body which contributed time and talent to Homecoming. It was above all a collective effort. All that is left to say is congratulations for a job well done. Sincerely, Jerry McMahon CRYIN3 ON THE OUTSIDE That's what these three Trojans are doing and it's all cuz of the smog. Helen Caras, with handkerchief to eye, gets s/mpathy fro mfellow tt^j- ferers, Jim Arney arid Pat Caras. On the whole, hardly anyone escaped fro mthe eye smarting element which everyone knows is there but can't do anything about. Smoggy-Eyed Trojans Cry-Out for Relief Trojans, when asked for an opinion on a subject any subject,, are usually light-hearted and witty in their remarks. Expecting such attitudes, the DT Pollster went forth into the “slightly smoggy, but clearing mosphere to find some brave souis to answer his question, "What Do You Think About Smog?" Replies coughed out went thi* way: Jerry McMahon: "I cant think of anything funny, it’s too irritating. They tell me there are mountains north of the city. Don't you believe it. I’ve lieen here 31 a years and haven’t seen them yet." Anonymous man ln the Student ■ Lounge: “It's awful, what can you say about it? It will ruin the city, t and when I graduate, I'm going to move."
