“NOBODY CAN BEAT U. 8. C!" California '<JAN •NOBODY CAN BEAT U. 8. Cl" Vol. XII Los Angeles, California, Thursday, October 14, 1920 No. 12 CRIBBING EVIL INVESTIGATION ON AT U.S.C. harges of Cheating Being Done in Wesleyan School Made OME STUDENTS GUILTY pecial Trojan Investigator to See to What Extent Evil Has Progressed By Anthony Comstock, Jr. I How many U. S. C. students passed their final examinations last year by cribbing? 1 Are the students in the colleges this ear cribbing in the daily written work hat is demanded in some of the Classes? Is the cribbing evil worse in U. S. C. han in other universities of the country? Other colleges find that the evil has pparently increased in the last few ears and that the attitude of he averse student seems to be “get high larks. Get them honestly if you caa -but get high marks.” California is being confronted with the problem of dishonesty, and s punishing those who are found guilty of the crime. Three women have recently been apprehended and punished. One of them was reprimanded by the Women's Affairs Committee, and will have to maintain a standard of 2 for the rest of the semester and will be suspended If found guilty of repeating [tlie offense. Another violator was deprived of credit in the course and placed on probaton for a year, in addition to being reprimanded by the president. The other received a similar reprimand, was deprived of credit in the course and suspended. Evidently there are “degrees" in the crime of cribbing, as there are degrees in other crimes— murder, for instance. Cornell met the issue squarely and expelled 107 students for cribbing in examinations. Charges that cribbing is rampant in I'. S. C. are being made on all sides. Those wrho make the charge are students w'ho have been here at least a year, and talk w’ith an evident knowledge of conditions as they exist. Departments in which the students do the greatest amount of cribbing have ever been named by disinterested students, that is, disinterested in the department, but vitally interested in the reputation of the student body. Is one class more at fault than another? Does any one department harbor more cribbers than another? Is cribbing done because the honor system has not been introduced at U. S. C ? Would cribbing be worse if the honor system were Introduced? Is the fact that students are required to take certain subjects responsible for the spread of the vicious disease? Most important of all. Is there cribbing being done at U. S. C.? The investigator will take these questions up in coming issues of The Trojan, and will dig into all the nooks and corners of the university and ex-pose the malodorous crime of cribbing to tlie full view of the student body and the faculty. SOPHOMORES TO HAVE LIVELY MEETING SOON Studious Studes Stick to Shelves U. S. C. students are studying. At least it appears so from the number of students who use the collateral room during the day, and the number of books taken out overnight. According to Miss Brown, head librarian, more books are being now used than is usual even during examination periods. Various theories have been offered as explanation of the increase in reading but the most probable one in Miss Brown’s estimation is that stddents are wiser than they were last year and so are not allowing required reading to accumulate. Commerce Students Read The increased registration and the opening of the College of Commerce which requires a definite aaount of outside reading are also probable reasons for the increased studying. An average of 50 books per week has been added to the collateral shelves since the start of the semester. NOTICE There will be a meeting of the Alchemists’ Club today at 1 o’clock in the Pharmacy lecture room. The main business will be the election of officers and the voting in of new students. Sophomores will meet next Monday at 12:30, in the chapel, for the fir.-it real big meeting of the year. Besides doing business in the meeting, a short, lively program will be put on for the ‘■utertainment of the sophs, according 1,1 President Al Wesson. The president urges all second year 'indents to watch the soph bulletin board often for announcements. PLACES RESERVED . EOS SORORITY PLEDGES By Florence Nicholson It was five minutes to twelve, noon, on—say, Monday. (It wasn’t Monday, but that doesn’t matter.) The long line of the hungry stretched from the cafeteria door to ^jmewhere in the infinity of darkness m the basement hall. (I was there, and I was hungry, too.) Half an inch, half an inch, half an inch onward moved the line, hungrier and hungrier with every minute of delay. Suddenly alKeyes glanced toward the stairs, for with a rush and a flurry and several giggles, down said stairs tripped merrily, with much glee and gusto, five frosh maidens, of the type commonly known as flappers. Each was adorned with a gay green ribbon, and a brand new, shiny pledge pn. Eventually they fluttered to the foot of the stairs. Now, in the line of the hungry was another maiden, and by reason of the progress of the line, she had in the course of events, arrived at that mucli-coveted place the cafeteria door. She also wore a gay green ribbon and a brand new, shiny pledge pin. When she perceived her sisters of the Greek letter, she likewise fluttered. Moreover, she waved a dainty hand, and called to them, und this is what she sad: “Oh, hello, dears. I saved a place for all of you, right in here!’’ Forthwith did they all cavort about upon the toes of the still hungry (but not very still) until they made places for themselves by the side of their thoughtful Bister, at the cafeteria door. And from all sides arose a grumble, and a rumble. And a dozen voices murmured: , “Can you beat It!" NEW PUBLICATIONS APPEAR ON CAMPUS TODAY LAST DAY OF T FUND DRIVE Today Is the last day of the big two-day drive for funds for the University Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A. Although yesterday was a successful one in getting money for the student “Y’s," officials of both the men’s and women's organizations state that a great deal more is needed in order that the budgets for the coming year may be carried out. If the funds raised in the present campaign are sufficient to carry on the year’s work, no more campaigns will be held this college year. Every cent if the money given to the Y. M. and Y. W. will be spent in service for the U. S. C. students, as none of it will leave the university for “Y" work Isewhere. Today is the last chance to prove your loyalty to the university “Y’s’„ according to the officials who are conducting the campaign, and you are urged to give all that you can to enable the organizations to carry on their work for the year. In order to perfect the varsity yells with which the rest of the student body is supposedly familiar, the freshman class will meet in chapel today at 11:40. Harry Kennedy ,who will be in charge, stated in an interview yesterday that a very large representation was essential in order that the freshman rooting section be in strong wrork ing order for the big Stanford game next Saturday. NEW YORK, Oct. il.—(Special to The Trojan.)—“Six traits distinguish campus interest include the following “Lick Observatory Bulletin” No. 320, “New and Simplified Method for the Statistical Interpretation of Blometrl •al Data,” Linhart, and Kroeber and Waterman’s “Source Book in Anthro-oology.” They may be obtained at the University Press office. KING YELL LEADER Schultz From Manual and Kennedy From Pennsylvania Are to Be Assistants Lindley Bothwell has been chosen by »the Varsity Club as King Yell Leader of the student body for the coming football season, with Karl Schultz and Harry Kennedy as assistants. Bothwell has been the varsity yell leader for two seasons and with the decision of the Varsity Club ^select a “King” to head the noise^ro-gram he was the logical candidate for the position. He Is a member of D#lta Beta Tau fraternity. % King Needed Last Year The decision to have a yell king was reached by the Varsity Club at its final meeting last semester, and it was planned at that time to have a general student election at the close of the football season to determine the future king. This plan cannot be carried out till the close of this semester, due to the fact that not all the candidates are familiar to the students, so that the club itself selected the man privileged to wear the S. C. Both Assistants Freshmen Both Schultz and Kennedy are freshmen, the former coming from Manual Arts High, where he made a name for himself as yell leader, while Kennedy is a graduate of Ridley Park High School, Pennsylvania. Both men made themselves popular wtih the stu dents by their showing last Saturday. Methodist Organ Commends Trojan “The Trojan” received recognition in the current issue of the “Christian Student,” a publication of the Methodist Press, with a picture of one of last year’s front pages and a story of its importance. The story as a whole deals with the publications of Methodist institutions in the United Sates. “The Trojan” occupies a high posiion among the papers, ranking with the “l)e Pauw Daily,” “The Daily Northwestern,” and the “Syracuse Daily Orange." It is a noticeable fact that the home paper is among one of the largest printed and is printed among the Methodist dailies. “The Trojan” receives the most editorial comment and is the first paper mentioned. The magazine has the following to say in regard to our little publication: “The University of Southern California ‘Trojan’ reflects the good newspaper work of its staff throughout in the way the stories are handled aud getting stories out of campus happenings. It is the type of college paper that leads the outside world to believe that the institution whch it represents is in the forefront of university activities.” FRESHMEN!

Every student bring one to help form the block “8. C.” CARDS. OUT FOR REVENGE IN SATURDAYGAME Stanford Bunch Is Determined to Beat U. S. C. by a Big Score CARD DOPE CONTRADICTS U. S. C. Student Body Will Have to Fight Spirited Card Alumni Usually at the advent of a big game, the home news-sheet can present a good line on the home talent/ but aB ar as the visitors are concerned, it becomes a different matter. It Is the purpose of this article to give as much dope on the Cards as it has been possible to collect, which isn’t much. Tangled Dope Two weeks ago, Stanford defeated the St. Mary’s team by the lop-sided count of 42 to ye noble goose-egg. Last Saturday the Cards were defeated by the strong Olympc Club team. To upset the dope, however, we find that nrevious to the Stanford game St. Mary’s had beaten the winged "O" )oys. Stanford’s defeat then, was totally nexpected, and can be accounted for in the facts that a great part of the battle was fought ln the rain, thereby futting down the natural speed of the Cards’ back. In other words, Stanford has not the kick team they appear to have at the first glance of the dope It now remains to be seen what they really do possess. Cards to Rely on Speed At the first glance it seems that the big asset of the Cards are the three individual stars they possess in Schaude-ina, Pelouze, and Campbell, and the utter contempt that Stanford cherishes for U. S. C. The Stanford team is not as heavy as it was last year, by far. It s also handicapped in the loss of its star back field man and captain, Holt, who was one of the mainstays of last year’s eleven. To offset this, however, Campbell, a transfer, and Schaudeman, star freshman back of last season, look like a million dollars. Stanford will undoubtedly have a number of shift plays and forward passes, relying mainly on its speed to get results. Pelouze at end is the fastest thing that ever happened around these parts, and when he starts tearing around the lot, thngs are liable to Buddenly^happen. The line is not light, by any means, and lt hati some formidable men in the persons of Deems, DeGroot, McAlpine, Adams and K. Schaudeman, brother to the halfback, so much in evidence. In /iddftion to this, the Cards have ln their favor tho Stanford Jazz and battle plus a longing to completely overwhelm the Trojans, and we have a right noble fray scheduled for Saturday. Psych. Stuff Evident The psychology of the coming game is such that It leaveB the Trojans, to a certain degree, in the lurch. U. S. C. decidedly defeated the Cards last season, and the Cards are out for revenge this year, wanting to win by a big score. AIbo, and it is not the leaBt point In the dope column, the Stanford alumni are showing a lot of spirit and handing U. S. C. the grand old raspberry, all of which means that the Cards will have a lot of rooting when they arrive, and support has decided more than one good game. The home gang is not going to be left far in the rear if Coach Henderson’s remarks can be relied upon. Henderson Ib still as gloomy aH ever, but it is apparent that he expects and demands that his team will give all the fikht it can, If Henderson’s expectations are lived up, as well as they were last year, the coming fray ought to (Continued on Page 4) » 15887482
