THREE HAPPY PEOPLE, but the happiest is Guthrie Miller, center, who's being presented two free ducats to the SC-Notre Dame grid battle by Jea Morf for winning the homecoming slogan contest. "Recall Your Joy in Halls of Troy" was his lucky entry and Johnny Davis, contest chairman seems entirely satisfied with the result.

HOPE FOR UNITY
At the end of World War II, there was hope for a united-China, and it was given an important role in international relations; but negotiations failed because the two parties w ere unable to understand terms clearly.
The two principles that negotiators were unable to agree on were the democratization of the government and the nationalization of troops. In explaining the democratization of the govenment, Dr. Chen pointed out that the Nationalist party actually controls the government, and the Communist party is seeking to break the hold of the one-party system that now prevails. Failure to agree on the nationalization of troops stems from not being able to determine which party is to control the army,
DEFINITIONS DIFFER
Democracy as defined by the Chinese communist cannot be construed to mean the same thing that Americans mean, cautioned Dr. Chen. To the Chinese communist, the line is sharply drawn between “democratic*' Russia and “imperialistic” United States.
Pointing out that the strength of the Communist party lies in the general dissatisfaction of the people with the Nationalist government, the large number of poor people, and the unpopularity of the government now in power, Dr. Chen reminded the audience that the Communist party will continue to hold power until the present government is able to propose a program that will appeal to the Chinese people.

Throngs Clamor At T.B. Feteprint
by Sid Bernstein
George Tirebiter rode down University avenue in triumph yesterday at noon and met his destiny, four paws to wet red concrete.
From now until the end of Troy, George Tirebiter is official Trojan mascot. Amidst the popping of photographer’s flash bulbs, blaring of horns, cheering of
hundreds of excited Trojans, and envy of other campus mongrels, George submitted somewhat grudgingly to his most recent trial. George graciously allowed his paw prints to become involved with a patch of wet concrete on the sidewalk at the comer of University avenue and Hoover boulevard.
Throughout Troy's first official Tirebiter day. George managed to maintain an iron calmness. A 30-car caravan of convertibles moved slowly down University avenue behind a makeshift band which made up for its lack of numbers with a noisy rendition of "The Bear Went Over the Mountain.’’ Every car was packed with campus bigwigs.
Troy’s opposing political factions united for the day, and the bipartisan nature of the event became evident to the gathered throng as politicos from major parties pro-

Bread Up; Don't Blame Yeast
The price of bread probably will rise 1 cent a pound in southern California next week, baking industry officials in Los Angeles predicted tonight. Although no unified industrywide action is planned, they said the rise appears imminent because of higher prices for flour and shortening, and as soon as one company makes the boost the others will follow.
No Relief for Loafers
SACRAMENTO, Oct. 22—Beginning tomorrow California’s jobless must “actively seek work” if they are to draw state unemployment insurance benefits. New regulations requiring jobless pay beneficiaries to actually go out in search of work go into effect then. The new regulation was made by the state employment stabilization commission on orders of the 1947 legislature.
claimed from the speaker’s stand their love for old Siwash and old George.
GREETS OLD TIMERS
George was escorted to the stand by a pair of campus oldtimers, John Ferraro and Mickey McCardle, who were introduced as having been on campus when George was a pup. Once the big dog of the day had been properly acclaimed, introduction of celebrities began. George seemed to enjoy the festivities, as the master of ceremonies Bill Stevens kept the bigwigs moving. From time to time, George attempted to disengage the garland of flowers that had been hung around his neck by ASSC vice-president Jea Morf.
Yell-King Chrys Chrys was produced and proceeded to harangue the crowd to a frenzied pitch with selected readings from the Daily Bruin. After leading the throng in three big Tirebiter cheers. Chrys was shoved irom the platform.
RUBY COLLAR Next to fight his way to the loud speaker was Joe Flynn, representing the junior class council.

Guthrie Miller, Slogan Winner, Is Surprised'
Class Waiting Gives Victory Inspiration For Homecoming Idea
Guthrie Miller, winner of this year’s homecoming slogan contest, was “surprised” when informed that his slogan, “Recall Your Joy in the Halls of Troy,” was chosen by Johnny Davis and his slogan committee to prevail during the 1947 homecoming week.
Topping a field of 338 entries, Miller’s selection was one of two he had entered. He submitted a few slogans for last year's contest but they “didn’t even receive mention.”
“My father wanted very much to see the Notre Dame game but the scarcity of tickets was a disappointing factor. Then one day I read of the slogan contest in the Daily Trojan and the prize of two 50-yard line tickets to that game,” said Miller yesterday. “Dad talked me into entering and that's all there is to it.”
WON BICYCLE When asked what prompted his winning slogan, Miller asserted he was waiting for a class to begin when the idea just came to his head. In 1937 he won a bicycle in a Horlick’s malted milk limerick contest.
Miller, a theology major, is an ardent SC fan and goes to all home games. He is a 28-year-old junior and a graduate of Franklin high school.
TROY IN ROSE BOWL “SC will go to the Rose Bowl,” opines Miller, “but I’d hesitate to say what will happen when they get there.” Miller, who had played sandlot football in his youth, still keeps alive a childhood ambition to play in the Rose Bowl himself. He is familiar with the records of all the major teams in the country as they go through the season.
Having overcome one ticket obstacle, Miller now wants to know where he can get two tickets for the Cal game, “for some friends,” he explains, adding that he is going to Berkeley regardless.

Cornell Head Speaks Here
Donald Shank, director of student personnel, New York state school of industrial and labor relations at Cornell university, spoke before the faculty club yesterday noon on ade quate student personnel aid. .
Mr. Shank revealed two points necessary for the successful functioning of an educational personnel program; faculty cooperation with the counselors, and cooperation from the highest administrators of the university.
“Putting the right person in the right place in order to use him to his maximum efficiency,” Mr. Shank said, “is the avowed purpose of personnel work.”
Referring to the teachers of the past as “pastoral policemen,” Mr. Shank compared their disinterest in the students’ welfare with today's extensive personnel programs in universities throughout thc country.
An autocratic system, unde which only the deans of a university would attempt to handle problem of the students, would preclude the advantage of having technically skilled people who specialized counseling. These specialists are the only satisfactory means of furnish ing adequate personnel aid, Mr Shank asserted.

A week-long series! of events centered around the slogan “Recall Your Joy in the Halls of Troy” will highlightIthe 24th annual SC homecoming to be featured by the Trojan-Notre Dame football game Dec. 6.
With 11 distinctive: activities for the week, commencing on Monday, Dec. 1, a number of innovations have bean planned to make the 1947 homecoming the high spot of the year
_ for all Trojan alumni. Everything is
being done to contact as many SC graduates as possible. Bill Winn, general homecoming chairman, said yesterday.
“Homecoming is definitely for the alumni, and every organization on campus is going all out to welcome old graduates back during the traditional week. E very precaution Is also being made to keep the judging of the various events strictly on the square,” Winn added.
FESTIVE DECORATIONS Festive decorations by every fraternity, sorority, and dormitory on campus will set the homecoming spirit and start the week’s proceedings. all to be erected around the theme and to be judged on originality. conformity, and construction.
A maximum of $75 for each house or dorm has been set by the committee. Eight separate trophies are to be awarded. Three widely-known experts from the Los Angeles area will be obtained for selecting the winners.
“All three judges whom we select for viewing the decorations will
have absolutely no connection with SC, and by this method a fair, unbiased decision can be made.” Winn pointed out. In the past, a six-man board of two students, two faculty members, and two alumni have constituted the board.
MOST BEAUTIFUL GIRL Attempting to locate the mo it beautiful girl on campus to reign as homecoming queen, the committee has discarded last year's rules and plans to inaugurate a new policy.
“We feel that Helen of Troy should be the most beautiful girl on the Trojan campus regardless of freshman, sophomore, junior, or senior class standing, and that Is why paot restrictions have been removed.” Winn said.
The four runners-up will serve as official attendants for the‘queen and will enter the coliseum prior to the football »ame on a specially designed float.

their maneuvers on the Berkeley field before game time.
Because northern newspapers last year termed SC band anticoi at the Stanford game as a “thre*--nng-cir-cus,” Mr. Sawhill is making. use of the moniker, and will stape.an authentic three-ring circus, performing bears and all, during h^lf-timej festivities next Saturday. *
The University of California au-J thorities, according to Mr 4a'.vhill, have cooperated 100 per cent., with the Trojans this year, and’ iall arrangements have been macit jwith a j minimum of red tape. *•
Pre-game festivities wrl! let bothj the Trojan and the Bear o*r;ds on j the field where they will cooperate in playing the Star Spang UM Ban-! ner. The half-time period {will bej longer than usual, giving both bands 10 minutes in which per-1 form.	*?
Half-time stunts in add-on to the circus routine, will include a formation describing the traditional Berkeley tower, at which time the band will play the “Car alma
mater.
Pand and Glee club members will arrive in Berkeley at 10 a.m. Saturday where they will immediately go to the playing field to rehearse their stunts. They will head for home at 2 a.m. Sunday.
Raubenheimer Warns Against. Absence From Friday Classes .
It has been brought to my attention by students -and faculty that many students are planning to be absent from classes on Friday in order that they may l»e -ble to make the trip to Berkeley in support of the football team in its game against California on Saturday aflter-noon.	* i
The university has made arrangements through ihe proper authorities for trains to leave on Friday evening for Berkeley and to return by Sunday evening. Thin is the only official means of transportation to the sja*ne recognized by the university. There is, therefore, no reason whatsoever for students to be absent from classes on Friday or on Monday in connection with the game.
Instructors are not in a position to authorize “exceed absences” from classes on either Friday, Saturday; or Monday. Students will be held responsible for all thei assigned classwork on these days.
Some students will no doubt choose to drive to Berkeley in their own cars. It cannot be urged too strongly that those who do go north in their own cars do so in a’ responsible manner. There is no reason why our rerord should not be kept clear of accidents. If we all cooperate, there will be no need to have the weekend fun maned by any untoward incident.
