Bowen We, the Class of 1921, Do Sincerely Dedicate This Book in Appreciation of His Loyal Interest and Help in the Progress of Our Alma Mater PRESIDENTS MESSAGE The year 1920 being the fortieth anniversary of the opening of the University of Southern California, it is fitting that El Rodeo should note briefly the progress made. It will be very necessary, however, for the editor to give heed to the cor- rectness of statement lest someone who was present on opening day and who has been more or less intimately connected with the University throughout its entire history might challenge the reliability of the information given. Remembering that it is not always possible to find the true source from which to get facts, the critic. I am sure, will be kindly disposed in this case. This is an epochal year in the history of the University. We have the largest enrollment taxing the capacity of buildings and equipment and necessitating addi- tions to the teaching staff. The new Auditorium and the Administration Building now being erected gives emphasis to the year you celebrate by the publishing of this Annual. The siege to raise rive million dollars to meet the immediate needs of the expansion program of the University i- meeting with favor and has the cordial endorsement of both city and county organizations. The cry of the world for help must accentuate the nee.l for college-trained men and women. Never before in the world ' s history was the demand greater an 1 the opportunitv more appealing than in this day. If circumstances have anything to do with developing men and women, we have a right to expect some very great leaders to come forth very soon. People die mentally and morally for lack of vision. I hope the men and women of the University of Southern California ma) see clearly, judge rightly and act promptly in their relation to the serious problems of life now to be met. Ah good wishes and hearty felicitation- to the Class of 1921. George F. Bovard. ALMA MATER By John uver Wilson, ' 08 ' Mid storied lands our college stands, ' Mid scenes oft traced in dreaming.

Are we going out from our University as men and women who can meet the challenge of our disturbed world. ' We are all so busy about our little affairs we often-times forget the goal of University training. ( )ur year just ending has been splendid in many ways. Our days have been happy— we have felt freed from the world responsibility since the Armistice was signed— ami have we not planned our life work in a more or less selfish way? It is so easy — and natural— to plan to earn money. for money ' s sake alone. The key-word, of our year has been progress. We have progressed in our studies; in our Student Body affair-, as shown by the new constitution; in our athletics; and most, in our feeling of world fellowship, as evidenced by the Service Campaign. To our Senior class we wish good speed and happiness, but more than that, we hope they will definitely realize some of the progressive aims of U. S. C. As Juniors, we are rather big-eyed at the thought of being Seniors—vet happy that we can be Seniors in this great school of ours. Our ambition is to bring other laurels to U. S. C. next year. For the Sophomores and Freshmen we offer the encouragement that U. S. C. brings greater visions and opportunities each year. With the opening of the coming fall term, representing the fortieth anni- versary of the founding of our University, shall we not step into the balls ,,: our new Administration building— clear-eyed, strong-willed young people with Christian ideals influencing every activity? 26 -fir? ' : lu MaGm j: to m ! ■• ' |M .«iS I 27 1 1 HISTORY OF THE UNIVERSITY OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA The founding of the University of Southern California was as much the logical outcome of the manifest tendency of Methodism, as the result of the individual enterprise and initiative. One of the most prominent influences at work in the early inception of this University was the spirit of the Methodist Episcopal Church : the spirit standing as it has, and does, for the highest possible development of character, and believing that this is attainable only through a proper balance in the functioning of life and all of its departments. It earlv became apparent to the far-seeing mind of Rev. John ! . Tansey that a great future lav before the University of Southern California in the city of I, os Angeles. Shortly after taking up his work as presiding Elder of the Los Angeles " District. Rev. Tansey had purchased a tract of land near the present townsite of Florence. With the idea of a school in mind, be donated a portion of this property for a campus. In addition to outlining bis plan, be suggested Rev. M. M. Bovard, pastor of the Methodist Church at Riverside, as the best man to place at the head of the new project. However, in 1876, Rev. Tansey died, ami while his plan for a University never materialized, vet the foresight which he had shown is a worthy considera- tion, for his was one of the earliest movements looking toward the foundation „f a Methodist institution of higher learning in Southern California. Later, in commemoration of her husband ' s part in the great work. Mrs. Tansey gave property valued at $20,000 to endow a chair in the University of Southern Cali- fornia to be known as the " Tansey Chair of Christian Ethics. " Another name which is associated with the beginning of the University is that of fudge Robert Maclav Widney. Soon after his arrival in Los Angeles, fudge Widney bad conceived the idea of a great University and bad begun to formulate plans for its establishment. One evening in May of 1879, Judge Widney invited Rev. A. M. Hough to his residence and laid before him the plans for the University work. An offer from West Los Angeles was secured by Mr. Hough, and the original deed of trust of the University was executed July 29, 1879. An election for the Board of Directors was held in L s Angeles, California, in 1880, which resulted in the selection of Rev. I lough and R. M. Wi lney as two of the prominent directors of the University of Southern California. The Board organized, elected officers, and adopted a code of By-Laws. This marks the end of the first stage in the history of the University, and in the second stage the period of actual construction began. The Los Angeles Academy cannot be overlooked as the forerunner of the larger educational institution. " The Academy differed in no essentials from the earlier University scheme, both having derived their first impulse from the same source. The Los Angeles Academy was incorporated as a preparatory school, while the University oVganized later ' as an entirely new and independent corpora- tion to do work of " collegiate rank. The Conference made the Academy a part of the University of Southern California. Rev. M. M. Bovard was elected to the presidency, and his brother to a professorship in the new University. During that summer, the trustees of the Endowment Fund voted to sell thirty lots and with the proceeds erect and furnish a frame building in which to conduct educational work. Friends of the University purchased lots at $200 each. Stakes had already been set for the lots and the streets marked out in the University tract. A contract was let for the erection of the first building. The cornerstone laving was held on the 4th of September. 1880. This was a great occasion, not only for the University and the church but for the city as well. Tin building was completed and ready for the opening of school work by ( Ictober 4. 1880. It was a large two-story frame structure, the lower floor being divided into several comfortable rooms for class-room purposes, and the upper e floor containing a large assembly hall. The president was inaugurated on the 5th of October, and on the morning of the 6th, fifty students enrolled in the various departments. In the spring of 1881, a dormitory was erected on the corner of McClintOck Avenue and Thirty-fifth Street, where it stood for a number of years or until it was moved to its present location on the campus. Along with the regular University work, a high moral and religious atmos- phere was always maintained. The exercises of each day were opened with divine worship in the chapel, at which the attendance of all students was required. A special series of lectures was arranged by members of the Faculty or by prom- inent persons in the city, to be given to the students each Sunday. Following the close of the first year ' s work, a determined effort was put forth during the summer months to enlarge the accommodations, increase the facilities, and to attract a larger number id ' students. The enrollment showed a marked increase. Some worthy additions were made to the Faculty, and a new spirit manifested itself in the character of the work to be accomplished by the new University. A dormitory was secured for the young men. The one li terary society which had been formed divided into two societies — a women ' s society, known as the " Athena Literary Society, " and a young men ' s society, known as the " Aristotelian Literary Society. " These still exist in the University and have become a considerable factor in the educational facilities of the institution. The I " niversitv Church is a direct outgrowth of the founding of the University and as such, was joined to it with strong ties of interest and sympathy. June 15th, 1884, marked the University ' s first commencement. The form for the diplomas as well as the design of the official seal of the University had been worked out. Around the border of the seal was inscribed the full name of the institution, " The University of Southern California. " In the foreground was a scroll bearing the date of the founding, " 1880. " To the right of the latter stood a palm tree, the emblem of triumphant victory. The crowning event of the commencement season was the first graduating exercises of the University. The next few years were epochal in the life and history of the University. They were vears of marvelous progress and expansion in all departments. A three-story brick structure with a stone foundation, costing $40,000, was pro- vided for. With the close of the year in June, 1885, Rev. F. D. Bovard tendered his resignation as Vice-President of the University and also as a member of the Faculty of instruction. He, in conjunction with his brother, the President, had taken up the University work and had given five years of his thought and strength and service in helping to lay the foundation of a Christian institution of higher learning in Southern California. Looking back over the past, one can but faintly realize the magnitude of the obstacles which the Bovards were called upon to meet during the pioneer days of the University ' s history. Only their loyalty to the Church and their devotion to the cause of Christian education could ever have induced them to undertake so great a task, and only their unswerving faith and confidence in its successful issue could ever have held them to their work. But being men who did not despise the day of small things, they manfully set their hands and minds to the task and worked with all the power and strength which they possessed. Together they planned and toiled until the foundation of the institution was firmly laid and its future success seemed assured. 29 The new building — which today forms the center of the main building on the University campus — was about one hundred feet square. It had three stories, basement and attic, clock tower and observatory. The basement was part -tune to the top of the ground, and the walls from that point were brick. The building was massive in strength and classic in proportions. In March. 1887. a branch of the College Young Men ' s Christian Association was organized in the University, and about two months later a similar department of the College Young Women ' s Christian Association. Standing, as these two associations do, for the highest ideals of life, they have been a most potent factor in maintaining correct standards of action and in increasing a proper moral atmosphere among the students. Mr. A. M. Peck gave $10,000 to the Library Fund of the University and with some special attention given for a few years, several hundred volumes were added and the entire library was catalogued and classified to the Dewey method. A University Council was organized whose duties should be to consult as to the best interests of education in Southern California. During the years when the institution was branching out in all directions and the work was constantly expanding, taking on a broader and larger scope, this deliberative body, embracing, as it did. all departments of the great educa- tional system, served a most useful and important purpose. It provided the means wherein ' the whole working force could familiarize itself with each and every department of the educational work as it was being conducted under the University system. In 1888, Rev. W. S. Matthew was inaugurate! as Dean of the College of Liberal Arts, and President Bovard had been relieve 1 of all teaching in order to perform the higher duties. Due to the strain the President had passed through in order to keep the institution going, he was unable to resist disease, and S( the institution lost its first President in 1891. The University may well be proud of its first President, who merits the full measure of honor and praise for the great achievements which he wrought, for the faithful service that he rendered, and for the unselfish and noble devotion which he exhibited. 30 Following out the idea of extension under which the University system was tirst operated, it was the aim to establish branch institutions f learning in as many strategic points throughout this section as possible, in order that these might become centers of blessing and power to the people of the communities wherever they were located. By this plan it was hoped to place the very best educational facilities within easy reach of all, and also afford such as desired an opportunity to prepare for the further and more advanced work in the higher departments of the I niversity. Accordingly, wherever circumstances were favor able and proper inducements were offered, projects of this character were launched. The first institution established under the original University system, aside from the College of Liberal Arts, was that of the Chaffey College of Agriculture, located at Ontario, California. This marks the beginning of that unique plan of expansion which was followed during the first decade of the University ' s history. However, at the end of two years, on account of a lack of funds, it was found impracticable to attempt to continue the Agricultural features of the College and. accordingly, the decision was reached to reorganize the instruction with a view to placing it upon a purely academic basis. The school revived later, hut for only a period of a few years. In 1901, Dean Randall, together with the Faculty and some of the students, was transferred to [_os Angeles. At a meeting id " the Hoard of Regents, held April 30, 1888, Rev. R. S. Maclay, A.M., D.D., was elected Dean of the new Maclay College of Theology, which was being built at San Fernando. On Tuesday morning. September 18, ISSN, the new building was dedicated and Dean Maclay installed. The new building thus formally dedicated was a beautiful structure with a most imposing and symmetrical appearance. By order of the Hoard of Regents, an Academic 31 Department, under the principalship of Prof. W. S. Wilson, A.M., and known as the " San Fernando Seminary, " was opened in 1888, in connection with the College of Theology. This was done to aid such theological students as were deficient in their preparatory work, and also to nu-et the educational needs of San Fernando and its adjacent territory. For a few years the College thrived, but was discontinued for a time owing to lack of sufficient funds, and a number of important changes were necessitated in the theological work. In 1907, steps were taken to renew the existence of the College of Theology, and Rev. Ezra A. Ilealv. A.M., D.D., was elected to the Deanship of the Maclay College. During the first year, courses were mapped out. a strong and capable Faculty secured, a goodly number of students enrolled and the work well organized. Since that time a decided advance has been witnessed in all departments of the institution ' s work. The Maclay College of Theology came to stand well with other older Methodist Schools of Theology. If the svstem as originally devised had fully matured, the University of Southern California would have become one of the greatest institutions for the advancement of the cause of the true education that this country has ever known. However, after a brilliant but short-lived career of ten years, the University system met with complete dissolution and total collapse, and with it passed one of the most spectacular ideas ever conceived by the minds of men. The death of President Bovard left the University in a most critical condition, and t meet the impending crisis the University was fortunate to secure the strong and courageous person of J. 1 ' . Widney. The organization of the Los Angeles County Medical Society in 1871 was largely the result of his efforts, and to his enterprising spirit was due the founding of the College of Medicine in 1885, in this city, as a department of the University of Southern California. Dr. Widney found the College of Liberal Arts $18,000 in debt and proceeded to clear up many land trusts and deeds in behalf of the University. Through his efforts. in 1892, the College of Liberal Arts was incorporated under a Board of Regents of its own. The meeting of the first Board of Regents was held on January 11. 1892, when the permanent organization was effected by the adoption of a code of By-Laws and the election of officers. Having satisfactorily adjusted the difficulties connected with the work of the College of Liberal Arts, President Widney turned his attention next to the still more perplexing task of effecting a consolidation of all the separate endow- ment funds of the various departments of the University system in the hands of the central administrative and governing body, the Hoard of Directors. The College of Music began its work in the fall of 1893, being established by vote of the Hoard of Directors. With the opening of the academic year of 1894-1895, a new epoch in the life of the University began. It marked the beginning of a movement which was to effect a radical and fundamental change in the aims, methods, ideals, concepts and spirit of the educational work of the institution. For nearly fifteen years amphasis in the system of instruction had been placed almost entirely upon the Classics, with the field of Natural Science altogether ignored. Then the 32 turning point came and the pendulum which had gravitate! so far to one extreme began to swing back to the opposite side. At this moment a new era dawned, and with it was ushered in the modern progressive spirit of scientific investigation and thought. After fifteen years of faithful service as President. Dr. F. P. W ' idnev resigned, and Rev. George W. White. A.M., D.D., was elected to the Presidency. At the very outset of President White ' s administration, in order to simplify the administrative machinery of the institution and better facilitate its work, the two corporations hitherto known as " The University of Southern California " and " The College of Liberal Arts of the University of Southern California. " were merged into one under the corporate name of " The 1 niversity of Southern Califi irnia. " During the first year of President White ' s administration, the educational work of all departments moved steadily forward. The Faculty was strengthened somewhat over that of the previous year and the course of study still further elaborated. Additional apparatus and laboratory facilities were supplied, which greatly increased the efficiency of the work in all the scientific branches. Oppor- tunities for more extensive reading and research were afforded by the large number of new books and magazines placed in the Library during the year. The matter of athletics and physical education also began to attract more attention. Croquet and tennis courts, field gymnasium, ball grounds an 1 other physical exercise equipment was needed. Intercollegiate athletics in Southern California. which bad been launched on a small scale some time previously, were assuming larger proportions every year in student life and activity. At the opening of the year, the School of Music underwent a thorough reorganization; new departments were added, higher standards set up. and the entire work placed upon a better footing. A School of iratorv was established with the beginning of the academic year, 1895-1896, as a separate branch of the University System. At the same time a College of Commerce was organized under the direction of Prof. J. G. Cross. A.M., of Chicago. In lS ' X ' . the Department of Pedagogy was organized in connection with the educational work of the institution and placed in charge of Prof. J. H. Hoose. A number of clubs were formed, composed of students and different members of the Faculty, for the purpose of affording further opportunities for studying and investigating various subjects connected with the departments under which the_ ' were organized. The Museum had also attained to large proportions by the addition of collections and specimens at different times, both by purchase and donation. Owing to the growth of the institution and the rapid building up of the University district, the little church which had been erected in the early years on the corner of Thirty-sixth Street (formerly Simpson) and Wesley Avenue, one block si .nth of the campus, became too small to accommodate the congregation. Accordingly, a new lot was purchased on Jefferson Street, a little west of McClintock Avenue, and on tins site a larger and more commodious edifice was built. ' I ' be beautiful new church, with a seating capacity id ' about twelve hundred, was completed and formally opened on May 28, 1897. For several years the University was considerably hampered in its progress by financial conditions throughout the country. The hard times, together, pos- sibly, with the fact that the tuition in both the College and Academy was raised to five hundred dollars a semester, caused the student enrollment to fall somewhat below that of previous years. Many faculty members were forced to work at reduced salaries, Dean Phillips resigned, and President White acted for a time as President and Dean. The period immediately following the close of the administration of Dr. White, lasting four years, was an interregnum in the Presidency of the University. During this " time there were Deans in charge of the work of the College of Liberal Arts, as in other departments, but the executive and administrative func- tions attaching to the head of the entire University system were of necessity performed by the President of the Hoard of Trustees. In the early spring of 1901, a banquet was given in the interests of the Endowment Fund, at which Bishop John W. Hamilton very forcefully presented the educational work and its needs. By the close of the year 1902, the full $100,000 of the new Endowment Fund had been raised and the University thereby placed upon a much firmer foundation. Meanwhile, the educational work had been moving steadily forward in all departments of the institution. The College of Medicine was the second department, outside of the College of Liberal Arts, to be established under the Universit) system. This branch has been very successful from the beginning and has been of value to Southern California, ( ' .real regret is felt that the Board of Trustees found it necessary on April 13th to discontinue this College next year because of inadequate endow- ment. It will be opened again, however, as soon as it can be placed on a firm footing again. May 2, 1901, articles of agreement between the University of Southern California and the College of Medicine of that institution were approved and signed, and the Medical College thereby became an affiliated department of the University. Inauguration ceremonies of the Medical College were held October 14, 1885. and were recognized by the city as an important civic event. This College graduated its first class, composed of nine students, in 1888. The College of Medicine placed itself in the front rank of medical colleges of the country when, in the fall of 1894, a full four years ' graded course of study was sub- stituted for the previous requirement and attendance upon lectures, laboratory and hospital work was made compulsory for eight months of each year. For ten years the Medical Department was conducted with great success in the building first secured for its use on Aliso Street. Later a fine lot. one hundred and sixty by one hundred and sixty-five feet, was purchased on the west side of Buena Vista Street I now North Broadway), and a new building was erected there which was ready for use in the fall of 1895. This building was named the " Founders Building " in honor of the Founders of the College of Medicine, whose efforts had made its erection possible. The equipment of the College was further increased three years later by the construction of the Hendryr Laboratory. This structure, standing about fifty feet to the north of the Founders Building, was erected by Dr. W. A. Hendryx as a memorial to his wife and was presented to the College on fanuary 6, 1899. On the 1st of February, 1905, another new structure was completed and ready for occupancy as a Clinical Building. M The College of Physicians and Surgeons was founded in 1904. The main building of the institution is situated on East Washington Street. In 1897, a Dental School was organized. A course of study was outlined and the organization sufficiently perfected to enable the work of instruction to be begun with the opening of the fall semester. ( )ne room in the Medical College Building served to accommodate the new department as there were but twenty students enrolled during the first year. For several years the instruction in the Dental School was carried on in the same building and in connection with that of the College of Medicine, but at length the entire upper floor of the Temple Block, at the junction of Main, Spring, and Temple Streets, was secured for its use. The College moved into its new quarters in 1899. More extensive appliance and apparatus were installed and complete facilities were offered for doing the best grade of work. As early as 1885, a committee had been appointed by the University Hoard of Directors with the object of establishing a College of Law, but at that time conditions seemed unfavorable. At length, in 1897, a number of law students banded themselves together into an association for the purpose of pursuing their legal studies in common. This was the first direct step taken in the formation of a Law School in the city of Los Angeles. At length the organization grew into what is now the Law School of the University of Southern California. In I ' ll], the Law School was incorporated under the name of the " Los Angeles College of Law. " Suitable quarters were secured for the school in the Rindge Building at the corner of Broadway and Third Street. At Venice, the nearest available and appropriate spot on the Pacific Coast, is the Marine Biological Station, where the trips of the Anton Sohrn, the launch belonging to the Department of Biology, provide abundant material for the study of marine life. During the years of 1910-11, the University was given the right to grant High School Teacher ' s Certificates, and since that time 776 Teacher ' s Certificates have been issued. A Graduate Department of the College of Liberal Arts was formed in 1910. The administrative officers of the Graduate Council are Thomas B. Stowell, Chairman; Rockwell D. Hunt, Secretary, and J .11. Montgomery, Registrar. This Council has now come to be recognized as the Graduate School of Arts and Science, of which Rockwell 1 ». limit is the presiding Dean. ( n .March 30, 1917, the Board of Trustees announced that all of the frontage on the west side of University Avenue between the present campus and Exposi- tion Park had been secured. This fixes the status of the University as a city institution and assures an adequate campus in a highly advantageous location. The University High School, a standard high school for a limited number of students, is maintained in connection with the School oi Education. I he 35 immediate aim of the High School is to prepare its students for entrance to the various Colleges of the University. With the beginning of the second semester. February 13, 1920, the University of Southern California announced the opening of a new College, to be known as the College of Commerce and Business Administration. The College will be an integral department of the University and will offer comprehensive courses leading to the degree of Bachelor of Business Administration i B.B.A.). It will hold the same relation to business, as a profession, that the College of Law and the College of Medicine hold to their respective professions. The purpose of the College is to train the student that he will have a broad outlook on life, a thorough knowledge of the principles that underlie business activities, and a comprehensive grasp of efficient business practice. BUILDING UNDCn CON5TRUCT OH APRIL IS. 92Q 36 Since the dark days of the war. in which very little progress was made in the University of Southern California, there has been a necessity for a greatly enlarged plant to care for the increasing number of young men and young women seeking higher educational advantages in Los Angeles. A program of expan- sion calling for the raising of $5,000,000 for additional buildings and equipment and endowment has been adopted to meet the immediate, not the future, needs of the institution. This means that undue delay in carrying out the program will force hundreds of high school graduates to go away from Southern California ro obtain advanced educational advantages and College degrees. In 1916, the University of Southern California raised by popular subscription $1,200,000. More than $1,000,000 of this was subscribed by individuals outside of Los Angeles. The new Auditorium and Administration Building now being erected will cost, when completed and urnished, approximately $1,000,000. The Hoard of Education of the Methodist Episcopal Church included the campaign of the University of Southern California as part of its great Forward Movement. The purpose as outlined is to obtain an ample campus and to raise $1,000,000 for additional endowment. This campaign was successfully completed during the spring of 1918, more than $1,227,000 being subscribed. At th e present time a second campaign is being conducted for an additional million-dollar build- ing fund. Fifteen years ago. our present President, Dr. Bovard, expressed in words the ideal that has inspired the men of days gone by — the phrase. • ' The Greater University. " Fifteen years have passed rapidly and each year has seen the University one Step nearer her ideal. Today she stands with 4000 students, a Faculty numbering over -HO, a graduate department of 150 and more. Hie University of Southern California is the center of higher learning in the South. Today ten Colleges are included in the phrase. " The Greater University. " Today she stands the great University of the South, realizing the ideals of her founders. Her leaders are preparing themselves to be worthy leaders of the Greater University which is rising before us. 3;i I® Contributors to art TOorfc I ' ,1, VDYS Ml IRGAN [rwin s navel y Wendell Neely Paul Silvius Hubert Abr vham Gwendolyn Abraham Kenneth Townsend Helen Walker M ABLE WlLSI i.

Trustees of the University of Southern California, at a meeting held January 27, 1920, recognizing this need, authorized the organization of such a school. At the following meeting, held February 24, 1920, Professor Rockwell D. Hunt was appointed Dean and instructed to proceed with the organization of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. The curriculum will include courses leading to the degree of Doctor of Philosophy. 42 43 Helen Avery Pi Beta Phi Gw en dclyn Abra ham Spanish Los Angeles High School Los Angeles State Normal School I. a Terlulia Palette and Brush Elizabeth Axtell English LOiiiDStone Ilmli School, Arizona Delta jl ' si Kappa American College ( )nill Club Charles H.

The cornerstone had been presented by the Class of 1919 last Ivy Day. Bishop Adna Wright Leonard, after the invocation by Dr. Hugh K. Walker, delivered the address. Acting Mayor Boyle Workman, Ernest P. Clarke, 1 ' resident of the State Board of Education, ' and Dr. Silas Evans. President of Occidental College, were the other speakers of the day. Judge R. M. Widney, who was president of the Board of Trustees in 1880, and who laid the cornerstone of the first building of the University in that year, was also present. Dr. Francis M. Larkin pronounced the benediction. Dr. Bovard, to whom we owe so much in the realization of our dreams of the Greater University, was master of the ceremonies. THE A. W. S. RECEPTION Students, faculty members, and friends of the nine Colleges of the University were guests the evening of March 19th at the Greater University reception given by the Associated Women Students of the University of Southern California in the Art Building at Exposition Park. In the receiving line were Dr. and Mrs. Bovard: Dr. and Mrs. Healey ; Miss Emily Biles; Isabelle Helm, President of the Associated Women Students; Claude Reeves, President of the Student Body; Jeanette Green. President of the Young Women ' s Christian Association; Ellsworth Charleston, President of the Young Men ' s Christian Association; and other men and women who were representative students of the University. The guests were delightfully entertained with a reading by Miss Ruth Parsons of the College of Oratory ; a stringed instrumental duet by Mr. Jerry Olds and Dr. Brown of the College of Dentistry; and a piano solo by Miss Emily Griffen of Liberal Arts. The orchestra from the College of Music furnished the music for the evening. The affair was voted a great success by all and was another splendid means of awakening the Greater University consciousness. 79 COMMENCEMENT The thirty-sixth annual commencement exercises of the graduating classes of the various colleges of the University were held on June 19, 1919, at Shrine Audi- torium. Upon this occasion five hundred students received their degrees, diplomas or certificates in perhaps the most solemn and patriotic commencement ever given at the University. The customary academic procession was formed at the College of Liberal Arts and marched to the Auditorium. In the following exercises under the direc- tion of President Bovard, the University honors were conferred upon the gradu- ates. The ceremony was made especially solemn as the names of thirty-six gradu- ates and students who had given their lives in the Great War were read, and also those who were former members of the graduating class but had responded to the call. In a most patriotic address. President Benjamin Ide Wheeler of University of California lauded the American type as being a very remarkable type of individual as was demonstrated during the past war. " He is strong, versatile, loyal to his friends, just to his foes and, above all, be is the most patriotic individual on earth. " IVY DAY The Senior Class of the College of Liberal Arts celebrated the traditional and time-honored customs of Ivy Day the afternoon of June 18. 1919. At this time they passed on the various traditions which bad been entrusted to them the previous year, and made their gift to the University, an expression of their interest in and ambition for the Greater University. The Ivy Day address was given by Lieutenant Arthur Ziegler, president of the Senior glass, after which the presentation of the class gift, a cornerstone for the Administration Building of the Greater University, the planting of the Ivy, and the unveiling of the class numerals followed. The Junior class was invested with the Mystery Bag, the Dog-on-Button, and the Baseball Bat. The friendly feeling existing between the two classes was exhibited when the Smoking of the Peace Pipe and the Burial of the I Iatchet took place. The presentation of the class gift was by Jennie Petersen of the Senior class, and President I ' .ovard responded in behalf of the University with a brief address. The Associated Student Body officers were installed and class numerals were awarded to the Senior girls prominent in University affairs. Ivy Day ceremonies were followed by the Ivy Day supper. THE GREATER UNIVERSITY BANQUET The Greater University Banquet was held on the evening of February 27 in the ballroom of the Alexandria Hotel, which was beautifully decorated for the occasion. Coming at the beginning of a great expansion campaign which has as its aim the establishment of one of the finest educational institutions in the country. the gathering was especially significant. More than four hundred students, faculty members and alumni of all the colleges were present, together with nearly a hundred guests, including Mayor Snyder, prominent business men. educators, lawyers, high school athletes and coaches, who had come to express the city ' s approval of the growth of the University in the past and to encourage the move- ment toward greater expansion. Although the colleges of the University are scattered over several sections of the city, the unity of spirit and purpose which hinds the various departments together was the topic of most of the speakers of the evening. And the opinion was unanimous that this same spirit of co-operation would make certain the real- ization of our dream of a Greater University, with all the colleges united in one splendid group. During the dinner the glee clubs sang several numbers, and " Al and Art ' s Golden Gate Synco-Knights " provided irresistible jazz music. Immedi- ately after the final course, Claude Reeves, president of the Liberal Arts Student Body, who acted as toastmaster. read a letter from Governor Stephens, in which he expressed his regrets at not being able to be present, hut enthusiastically endorsed the plans of the University, and asked the entire Southwest to support the project. After a brief account of the highly successful season in athletics. Reeves intro- duced several men who have brought U. S. C. international prominence in the world of sports. Charles Paddock, Charles Dean, " Swede " Evans and Coaches Cromwell and Henderson were called upon in turn and each responded in the manner of all true athletes with an embarrassed bow and a hasty collapse into his chair. Representatives of the affiliated colleges also spoke ; each one expressing the eagerness of his department to contribute in every way possible to the Greater University plans. President Oldham of the Dental Students, Dr. Eric Wilson of the College of Medicine, and Voltaire Perkins, president of the Law Student Body, spoke in the order named. Mr. Perkins ' talk was especially fine and his interpretation of the letters " U. S. C. " with " U " for unity, " S " for service and " C " for cash with which to realize the unity and provide the service could not be improved upon. The alumni were represented by Harold Brewster, wdiose readings are always popular, and Bert Smith, who emphasized the urgent need for publicity in order to gain recognition for the University. Professor Baskerville of the Department of Business Administration was the first speaker for the faculty, and he was followed by Dr. Rockwell I). Hunt, who outlined the expansion program in the absence of President Bovard, who was confined to his home by illness. At the proper moment in Dr. Hunt ' s address a spotlight was thrown upon a picture of the new Administration Building, which hung at one end of the banquet hall. This building, now under construction, is the first unit of the proposed group which eventually will house the entire Univer- sity upon one campus. At the conclusion of his speech, Dr. Hunt introduced Mayor Snyder, who praised the work of U. S. C. and called upon the city to sup- port the building program. .Mr. Maynard McFie, president of the Chamber of Commerce, followed with a few words on the value of the ethical ideas of the University and an endorsement of the expansion plans. At the conclusion of the after-dinner speeches the U. S. C. tiger, late of Occidental, made a brief appearance and was given an enthusiastic reception. Altogether the banquet was a splendid success. From all appearances the spirit of 81 co-operation between the colleges had been strengthened rather than weakened during the temporary confusion occasioned by the Great War, and there was every indication that the colleges would stand shoulder to shoulder in the great drive toward a united University. Somehow. Alma Mater, as it was sung that night, seemed to have a new meaning, a deeper significance than ever before, indicating that failure wasn ' t possible, and promising complete realization of our dreams of a splendid, big, united University of Southern California in the imme- diate future. Clark Marshall. THE HALLOWE ' EN MASQUERADE Weird ghosts, owlish spooks, jolly clowns and gorgeous damsels, not to men- tion His Satanic Majesty, Mephistopheles. thronged the halls of the Engineering Building, October 31, to participate in the Annual Hallowe ' en festivity. Five hundred students and professors from the various colleges of the University took part in the affair. A grand march and the awarding of the prizes, with a clever program, were the mam events of the evening. Mack Sennet ' s Bathing Beauties had really truly rivals in the group of girls who captured the costume prize. This was a big All-University event and well patronized by University men and women. ■ ' : 82 S. C. has Oxy ' s sacred pep-producing tiger and has had it since three loyal Trojans journeyed over to the institution across the city, October 15, 1919, and returned with the famous cat. The three students of U. S. C. ( one of whom is a prominent Senior woman I were sent to Occidental to gain intelligence as to the whereabouts and availability of the paper mache mascot. After gaining the desired knowledge they were to have returned to U. S. C. and later a party would be sent to ( )ccidental to get the tiger, but after a delightful meal at the expense of Oxy, they decided that it was the most opportune time for the pursuit. The two men waited about the college until the caretaker of the tiger left it unguarded and then they entered the kala jagah and quickly decamped with the idol. The news could not be held by either Occidental or l " . S. C, and early the next morning everyone knew of the Trojan ' s victory. Before 800 exuberant students assembled on the bleachers of Bovard Field at 11 :40, U. S. C. held the most successful rally ever staged on this campus. Each of the 800 contributed his lung power in producing a unique Trojan yell to greet the yawning tiger as the effigy of the jungle beast was ushered on the field escorted by the Legion of Honor and many automobiles. The stolen tiger was led to the platform where it performed like a ventrilo- quist ' s dummy in accompanying the yell leaders. Every Trojan smiled as the Tiger glared vindictively at its exultant captors, and Mr. Ward of The Photorium said: " See the little tiger, " and then clicked his camera. The tiger was whisked off by the Legion of Honor, and the rally was over. Claude Reeves spent much time and energy and a little money in an endeavor to ascertain the secret lair of the tiger, but Claude Reeves was surpassed by cohorts from Occidental who scoured the university, fraternity and sorority houses on the campus for the departed feline. A want ad later appeared in the Los An- geles Examiner : " Stolen from Occidental, Wednesday night, paper mache tiger. $1000.00 reward. Address Box No. 17893, Examiner Office. " It failed to get the tiger. Much talk with no results characterized the whole campaign as carried on by Occidental. Even two detectives from the Nick Harris agency appeared at the Alpha Chi Omega house and " interviewed, threatened, coaxed and wheedled Jeanette Green " for half an hour to obtain information con cerning the hidden lair of the secreted tiger and. in addition, 15 pieces of jewelry which they alleged were stolen from the college. As before, no result. The tiger re-appeared on several occasions as a pep-producing agent and it never failed to produce the desired results. 83 UNIVERSITY SERVICE CAMPAIGN Along the line of progress this year one of the most successful things under- taken by the University students was Our University Service Campaign of of Aprii 12, 13 and 14. As men and women we felt that U. S. C. must contribute to the world in the fight against ignorance, fear and superstition — so a campaign was launched with $1000 for its goal, to be used in placing a Trojan in the foreign field. Claude Reeves, A..S.B. President, appointed Gross Alexander fur the leader of the drive. Mr. Alexander formed an Executive Hoard of representatives of all societies and colleges in the University. Trojan activity was characteristic of the campaign. 1 ' osters appeared, bulletin boards were filled, and the Trojan was active in advertising. Minute men under Frances Selecman spoke in every organ- ization meeting and secured men of note as Dr. Selecman and 1 r. Francis for chapel speakers. Monday, the 12th, was Campaign Rally Day and characteristic of a U. S. C. rallv it was full of pep and enthusiasm. The Glee Clubs and Miss Yoder con- tributed to the spirit of the meeting, followed by a most stirring address by Bishop Welch of Korea and Japan. Every student felt prepared to give not his bit but his best on Tuesday — when the financial campaign opened with Margaret Corson as chairman and Frank Foote, treasurer. It was a Fete Day — with the Punch Table managed by the sorority girls, and clever booths surrounding it — the African, Japanese. Chinese and Spanish. A contest was waged among the booths, the African winning in the end. Keen interest was shown in watching the sun rise — a clever device showing the advance of the pledges toward the $1000. Wednesda) was Dollar Day in all colleges, and the campaign closed with the splendid sum of $2311.72. The Trojan to be selected by the Executive Committee and two faculty mem- bers will be a graduate of U. S. C. who can represent our University mentally, physically and spiritually in the world. 84 BIG SISTER MOVEMENT Under the efficient leadership of Esther Grua as Chief, the Big Sister Move- ment was unusually successful this year in accomplishing the purposes for which it was initiated, namely — to aid Freshmen women in gaining a correct conception of the ideals of the University, together with the routine of college activities, and to bring about a closer relationship between the women of the upper and lower classes. Soon after registration a Big Sister Luncheon was held in the Cafeteria, followed by a reception, at which time each Freshman girl was assigned a Senior Big Sister, who was to act as her friend and advisor throughout the year. The following girls were appointed as Captains to assist the Chief B.ig Sister in the organization : Phyllis Hepler, Elizabeth 1 lughes. Fay Levering, Nina Stone, Florence Knight, Bessie Truesdale and Ruby Roberts. Each Captain, some time during the year, has arranged for a luncheon date when she and the Se nior girls in her group could meet with their Little Sisters and become better acquainted. This system has proved very effective since it makes possible a real friendship among these smaller groups. WOMEN ' S DAY Women ' s Day, on May 5, was a gala day for the women of the University of Southern California. Earlv in the morning a special edition of the Trojan, published by the women of the staff and under the supervision of Florence Nicholson, appeared on the campus. The program of the morning was given in the chapel by the Women ' s Glee Club and representatives from the women ' s student body of the affiliated colleges. Los Angeles Club women were present and were guests of the Associated Women Students during the remainder of the day. Following this entertainment, luncheon was served in the cafeteria. Miss Emily Biles, Dean of Women; Mrs. Charles F. Edson, a guest of the day, and various other prominent club women of Los Angeles, responded to toasts. An added attraction in the afternoon was the athletic events in which the women athletes of the University exhibited their skill in tennis, basketball and hockey. Winners of the swimming meet were also made public. |azz music throughout the day ami the appearance of the women in white contributed much to the success of Women ' s Day. A. W. S. LOAN FUND BENEFIT On February 25 the Associated Women Students held their annual Loan Fund Benefit, the proceeds of which help to swell the fund maintained by the women of the University and from which a University girl may borrow, when in need of financial assistance. The rate of interest is only four per cent and the principal need not be repaid until after graduation. Thus through the aid of the Loan Fund many girls, who otherwise might be obliged to drop out in their third or fourth years, are enabled to complete their college courses. The Benefit this year took the form of a tag sale. Tags on which was written the rhyme " A dime in time I lelps somei me climb. " were sold to students and faculty for the small sum of ten cents each. Several hundred tags were disposed of to enthusiastic faculty members and students, the total sum realized being approximately $75. 85 THE POINT SYSTEM The Point system, adopted some years ago, was revised again this year to meet the needs and responsibilities of the offices among women. The purpose of the system is to distribute honors more evenly among the women of the University, to restrict the tendency to undertake more than is advis- able, and to furnish a basis for awarding letters at commencement. )ne girl may hold offices holding not more than twelve points. Each office is assigned a number of points, according to time and work involved in its execution. An enforcement committee consisting of one representative from each class has been appointed to co-operate with the A. W. S. Board in enforcing the system. This enforcing committee consists of Senior, Georgia Beven Junior, Eva Mae Miller Sophomore, Marion Joplin Freshman, Beth GoodEel The schedule of points follows: A. W. S.

Due to the many and varied activities which come logically in the Junior year, such as the publication of El Rodeo, the Junior Play, the Junior-Senior Banquet, and last but not least, the funeral for the Senior Sneak Day, it was thought best that the members of the class should become better acquainted in order to be more efficient and to enjoy better the tasks before them. An informal reception was considered best for this purpose, and over one hundred Juniors spent a happy evening with their faculty advisors. Dr. and Mrs. Bogardus and Dr. and Mrs. Hill. A short program, (if which the enchanting Scotch ballads sung by John Markey were the feature, was followed by the announcement of the program of activities by the class officers and a social hour with refreshments. THE JUNIOR-SENIOR BANQUET The most scintillatingly brilliant social affair iff the year was the Junior- Senior banquet, May 12th. at Beverly Hills Hotel. The dignity and effectiveness of the agair are a splendid testimonial of the formal courtesy extended and accepted in a manner which is an honor to the institution which its participants represent. Miss Marjorie Helm, president of the Junior class, acted as toast-mistress. and the response for the Seniors was made by Ivan Summers, president of the graduating class. The speakers of the evening responded to the toasts, which were unique, following the Trojan plan. They were, in order: President Bovard : Claude Reeves, president of the Associated Student Body ; the new president-elect of the student body: Katherine King, editor-in-chief of El Rodeo, for the Junior girls ; Elizabeth Hughes, for the Senior girls, and Stanley Sutton, for the Junior men. This is one of the honored traditions of University history, and it is hoped that the success of this function will be an incentive to the classes which follow to help maintain and uphold such worthy traditions. THE SOPHOMORE PICNIC Santa Monica Canyon was the scene of a glad-hearted, merry-making party when the Sophomore class held their first picnic there November 11. 1919. The participants had arranged an all-day program, which everyone enjoyed to the fullest extent. There was a real feed, a first-class baseball game, and a swim in the ocean, followed by a great bonfire in the evening. The supper and cheery sing which the tired but happy picnickers held around the bonfire concluded a most memorable day for the Class of l ' 22. THE JUNIOR PICNIC Fisherman ' s Cove was chosen as the setting for the Armistice Day Picnic, which eighty happy Juniors enjoyed to the full. Even the drivers of " the rubber- neck wagons " agreed that the U. S. C. Juniors were the peppyest crowd they had ever transported. Toasted marshmallows, little songs and ditties by the Honor- able " Si " Perkins and a lovely ride home in the moonlight ended a perfect day. FRESHMAN-SOPHOMORE RECEPTION A brilliant reception for the incoming Freshman class was given by the Sophomores in East Hall the evening of October 15, 1919. At this time the new students were cordially welcomed into the University circle. The whole evening was given over to merrymaking and to getting acquainted, in which a spirit of friendliness and goodfellowship was created between the two classes which no rivalries, whatever they may he, can ever destroy. SOPHOMORE LEAP YEAR PARTY The Sophomores have the honor of having indulged in one of the most unique social functions given during the year. The men of the class were the honorees at a Leap Year party given by the girls of the class on March 24, 1 ( J20, at the Kappa Alpha Theta house. The girls paid all the customary respects to the boys due the opposite sex on such occasions. Needless to say. it was a very successful affair and the recipients, although unaccustomed to such solicitous attentions, expressed themselves as having had a most remarkable and enjoyable evening. 89 EL RODEO PARTY Hobos, toothless grannies, Bolsheviks, calico-clad maidens and chore boys appeared at the Armory Building at Exposition Park on April 28th, clad in their best " bib and tucker. " When the sale of books for El Rodeo opened, the Junior class offered to entertain that class which sold the most books in proportion to its enrollment. The Senior class won, and the Juniors sent them an invitation to a Hard Times Party. Sneaking from tree to bush to evade any " cops. " the poverty-stricken group of upper classmen arrived in time for the grand march. Professor and Mrs. La Porte, as judges, awarded the hr t prizes for pauperism to Faye Brown and Noel George. After baseball games in which the Junior girls and Junior boys won from the Seniors, the school boys enjoyed a game of jump rope. Clarence Butter- field ' s group of crack athletes won in the track meet which followed. Penny prizes were awarded to all who won first place in any event. Ice cream cones and all-day suckers were handed out to the hungry-looking crowd as they filed past the table, clutching their sunbonnet strings or crownless hats. ' .(i I ' NITIqATIO ' KIS 91 SPHINX AND SNAKES INITIATION Paaperr! mister — paaperrr — ten cents, mister. Sphinx and Snakes pledges, in prison garb, sold the " Yaller Dorgs " on the campus, January 15th. This was the second appearance of the canine, and its presence was hailed with delight as each student peeled out a dime to alleviate the prisoners ' fate. With Silas Perkins, Esq., as editor and Earl " Hazel Nutt " as businness man- ager, the paper offered splendid reading for the faculty and others. When the papers were gone, the chain gang circled the halls in lockstep and then disappeared. The following evening, January 16th, the formal initiation banquet was held at the Alexandria Hotel. Ivan Summers was toastmaster, and each of the following new members responded with short toasts: Gwynn Wilson, Earl Hazelton, Elmer Wahrenbrock, Clarence Perkins, Carl Seitter, James Woodward, Roy Johnson and Irwin Suavely. Dr. and Mrs. Stabler and Prof. Willett were honored guests. SKULL AND DAGGER On Thanksgiving Day at the U. S. C. vs. Stanford football game was held the annual initiation of the neophytes to be granted membership in the Skull ami Dagger Honor Society. The candidates were required to appear on the gridiron, before the opening of the game, arrayed in evening dress. They carried multi- colored sunshades and marched up and down the field in the wake of the Uni- versity band in pseudo-military formation. Between the halves it was their unhappy lot to sell to the gathered throng articles varying in character from Hooverized bread to animated and illustrated autobiographies. The society ' s formal initiation and banquet took place at the Hotel irginia. Pong Beach, Saturday, January 10. Those initiated were: Elmer Henderson, athletic coach: Floyd Oldham. Dental Student Body President: Tom Metcalfe, editor of the Trojan: Glenn Moore, business manager of the Trojan: Carl Seitter, business manager of El Rodeo ; Franklin Skeele, winner of the French Croix de Guerre citation ; John Fox, captain of the Varsitv football team; Gwynn Wilson, captain of the track team: Charles Ainley, captain of the basketball team; Paul Beale, athletic manager: Edward Marxen, captain of the baseball team: Ellsworth Charlson, president of Y.M.C.A.; Charles Paddock, world ' s champion sprinter; John Robinson, debating manager; Lloyd Nix, Trojan manager. 92 SKULL " " fDAGOE-R INITIATION SPOOK a»aSPOK ES INITIATION .SPHLHX onti SNAKL5 INITIATION 93 TORCH AND TASSEL The honor society for especially representative Senior girls found a rich harvest in June. 1919, when six splendid young women were added to its ranks. Those chosen in June were Isahel Helm. Zuma Palmer, Jeanette Green, Mae Conn, Marguerite Giffen and Esther Grua. Their initiation, which was private, was followed by a jolly dinner at Hotel Clark. Two more Senior girls were admitted to membership early the first semester of the current year, Helen Shaffer and May Mortly. The annual alumnae luncheon for all alumnae and active members was held in the Varsity Cafeteria. November 17th. SPOOKS AND SPOKES The original date set for the public initiation of Spooks and Spokes. Junior Women ' s 1 fonor Society, was February 27. and a crowded chapel awaited their ap- pearance that morning. It seemed, however, that the Spooky neophytets had flitted away, and had very cleverly planned that a telegram should reach (J.S.C. express- ing their regrets for their non-appearance. Hut true to the old adage — " the best laid plans of mice ami men " — the telegram arrived after the distressed and cha- grined members of Spooks and Spokes had dismissed a disappointed assembly;. ( n Friday, March 19, six humble and repentant little pledges stood before the student body in pigtails, white dresses with orange and black ties and sang their classical and never-to-be-forgotten song, " If at first you don ' t succeed, try. try again. " formal initiation was held Wednesday evening at the Beta Phi house and was followed later by a banquet at the Mary Louise Tea Room. Invited guests were .Miss Myrtle Biles, dean of women, and Miss Gertrude York. Dorothy Schurr, President, acted as toastmistress. The initiates were: Katherine King, Helen Walker, Marjorie Helm, Marion Curtis, Edith Scott and Grace Cooper. 94 Ortt6itioits 4 •atJw THE PUSHBALL CONTEST The much heralded and eagerly awaited clash between the Sophomore and Freshman classes was perhaps the bitterest struggle fought on Bovard Field this year. In spite of their wider Varsity experience and superiority of the previous year, the Sophs fell in a disastrous defeat before the onrushing and enthusiastic Frosh. However, the large score, 28-0, does not tell the story of the fierceness of the battle which the Sophomores waged in a losing cause. In justice to the vanquished, it can be said that they were overcome only as a result of greater numbers and " Fresh " substitutes on the part of their opponents. — — - _ FR05H - SOPH PUSHBALL LOVE. - HONOF - OBBr 96 THE TRADITIONS COURT Mandatory justice and direct action principles have held full ■-way at the Varsity since the organization of the famous and. by some, so-called notorious Traditions Court, the instrument created by the upper classmen for the humilia- tion and punishment of those. offenders who deem it fitting to disregard tra litions on the campus. .Manv and varied were the charges preferred against the unsuspecting and apparently innocent Freshmen, Sophomores, and even Juniors. Ridiculing the gown and mortar-hoard of the Seniors; desecrating the " Holy of Holies, " the Senior Bench; smoking on the campus; queening on the front steps and in the basement windows, and various other harmless little diversions constitute! the enormity of the offenses. The offenders were brought before the judicial body, presided oyer with much mock dignity by Paul Wilcox, the well-known track star and a prominent Senior at Liberal Arts. Twelve Senior men, tried and true, gave decisions rivaling those of the highest court of our land in judicial merit. The sentences in all cases were immediately execute 1 and, strange to sa , n. » appeals found their way to any higher court. The newly erected stocks and the flagpole served as the instruments of punishment, augmented by paddling and the water cure. Enough said! Ami that was the , .pinion of those who. although thev offended, took their deserts in a manly way, which real Trojans cannot fail to admire. 97 SENIOR SNEAK DAY On a pleasant dav, very early in the morning, the Senior class met en a corner to take a special car for the beach. The noble president. Ivan Summers, came tripping along University avenue with a great mass of literature under his arm. As he started across the campus to decorate the halls with his material, four Junior men relieved him of his burden and chased his noble highness away. Mr. Sum- mers was fortunate in having the longest legs, and therefore reached the Jefferson street car before his followers. The Senior cla s enjoyed the day at the beach with a baseball game, a wienie hake. etc. The Junior class held a pathetic funeral over the Senior bench, with Silas Perkins as parson. 98 religiou activiti: 99 STUDENT VOLUNTEER CONVENTION Twenty-six students were sent by U. S. C. as delegates to the International Student Volunteer Convention, held in Des Moines, Iowa. December 31, 1919, to January 4. 1020. The jolly crowd had a hilariously good time on the trip, going bv way of the Santa Fe, in a special car occupied by themselves and other Southern California college delegations. At Des Moines, as part of the audience of eight thousand college students. they heard magnificent lectures on subjects of universal importance by world- famous men. bile missionary service in foreign countries was the dominant note of the conference, post-war reconstruction needs and problems in the l " nited States and Europe were presented as calls to Christian service also.

C. has been especially fortunate in securing speakers of such wide and varied interests as have been our lot this year. Among those who have spoken from the University Chapel forum are the following men. prominent in world activities: Win. II. Crane, the eminent American comedian, who spoke under the auspices of the Lance and Lute Dra- matic Society: Bishop Welch, of China and Korea; Vachel Lindsay, the celebrated poet ; Dr. C. C. Selecman, of Trinity Methodist Church; Dr. Robert Francis, of the First P.aptist Church: Dr. Will A. Betts, of the University Methodist Church: and Rev. P. Headley, Y. M. C. A. worker, recently returned from work among the Chinese in France. Such speakers as these and others w ' -o apoeared before us tend to broaden our outlook, and to bring us to a world vision for higher service. 100 STUDENT DEVOTIONAL HOUR Every Thursday evening during the school year the Devotional Hour was from seven to eight p. m. at the Y. M. C. A. Hut. There gathered, were the representative students and leaders in all phases of activity. Under Dr. J. ( . Hill ' s efficient, inspiring leadership the hour has been packed with sixty minutes of fun, entertainment and quiet spiritual uplift. The spirit of the meetings was unique in its spontaneity, prayerfulness and natural expression. Quartets, vocal solos, instrumental numbers liave been among the entertainment features during the past year. The devotional talks of Dr. Hill, Bromley Oxnam, Dr. Gilliland, Dr. Bronson and others have given spiritual strength to those attending. It has been a place of student self-expression and development in the spiritual qualities. " WE BOYS " AND J. O. C. ' S ENTERTAIN The evening of October 17th saw the " Y " Hut transformed into a Hotel de Luxe, managed and " miss " -managed by the " We l ' .oys " and J. O. C. girls. As the guests, who numbered over one hundred, entered, they were officially regis- tered, and next followed a grand march to the banquet room, the transformed " Y " auditorium. Each table was laid beautifully for four people, and decorated with dainty flowers. A splendid program followed the ' •eats, " punctuated by announcements by the " page, " Merle McGinnis, and finished off with one of Fatty Arbuckle ' s screamingly funny films. These two progressive classes took this means of introducing themselves and extending the warm band of fellowship to the new students. J. O. C. AND " WE BOYS " CELEBRATE ST. PATRICK ' S EVE Had jovial St. Patrick come back to earth and visited Athena Hall on Wednesday evening. March 17th, where a J. O. C. and " We l ' .oys " Heap Year party was in full sway, he would have been the most astonished saint that ever lived, for, in addition to the usual St. Patrick ' s Day stunts, the escorting oi the men to the party by the girls was the order of the evening. Decorations symbolical of the land of the shamrock were in evidence, and the games and stunts of the evening were used to bring glory to the name of the good old St. Pat. 101 THE Y. M. C. A. AND Y. W. C. A. JOINT RECEPTION One of the most universally attended affairs of the entire school year was the joint reception tendered to the new and old students of the Colleges of the University by the Young Men ' s and Young Women ' s Christian Association. In the receiving line were prominent members of the faculty, among them I )r. and Airs, l ' .ovard and the presidents of the two associations, Air. Ellsworth Charleson and Miss Jeanette Green. The reception was of informal type, and the spirit of the friendliness and good-will among the students was very pleasant to see. A splendid program was offered by representative people of the University, and addresses of welcome were given by the two presidents to the new students among us. Later, under the direction of Prof. Win, Ralph La Porte, of the Department of Physical Education, games were played in which the students came to know each other better and to realize the meaning which social contact with students of a Christian institution can mean in college life. The keynote of the evening ' s pleasure brought clearly to the mind of each one present the principle and fundamental aim for which these two organizations came into being, the world problem of today — Service. K 2 103 GREEN STOCKINGS The Junior Class presented " Green Stockings " for the Junior play this year, at the Gamut Club, Thursday and Friday evenings. April 8 and 9. The play was ably managed by John Markey, and was a success in every way. due in part to the directorship of Mr. Hert St. John. The Junior Class treasury was considerably swelled by the addition of $240.00, the net proceeds of the play. The leading roles of " Green Stockings " were played by Hellen Northmore as Celia and Robert Rager as Colonel Smith. The work of these two was pro- nounced to be more professional than amateur.

April 23rd, to witness the Senior Road Show, presented by the class of 1920. The physical education department put on a splendid exhibition of the scien- tific art of boxing. Music College was represented by a talented young violinist and pianist and two charming vocalists. Lance and Lute Dramatic Society staged a clever and snappy little farce-comedy, with Clark .Marshall, Hetty Hughes and Margaret Strauss as the performers. Law School sent an entertaining reader and an accomplished pianist. Dental College showed its splendid spirit of co-operation by sending the entire cast of its famous Minstrel Show, and their excellent and highly entertaining choruses and solos were appreciated immensely by the audience. The revival of this old custom means much to the LTniversity, and the success with which it met this year will insure its being followed out in the vears which C( ' me after the of l ' C ' O has left U.

They have taught classes for the betterment of the living conditions there, and have given that valuable personal touch that does so much to really uplift. They have shared joy and grief and helpful service with the people, being ever ready with sympathy and goodwill.

M. C. A. stands as one of those foremost factors whose influences tend to make college life all that it should mean. Its work is not of a competitive nature in respect to other organizations on the campus, but rather supplementary. properly balancing the activities of the student. The $10,000 Hut, built by the National War Work Council of the Y. M. C. A., is now under the supervision of a secretary employed by the University, Mr. J. W. McGinnis. A modern uni- versity " Y " with its cozy Hut. where students may enjoy the privileges of athletic equipment, the library, the writing room, the lobby, and the auditorium provided with a motion picture machine and a piano; where students may find a warm- hearted friend in the secretary, whose chief interest is to serve their needs — a student " Y " organization constituted by the best leadership in the school, men who are interested in the welfare of their fellows, extends its hand of fellowship and service to the men of the campus. What It Stands For The purpose of the Y. At. C. A. is two-fold — to help the student and to help him help himself. It stands at his service and at the same time offers him oppor- tunities for leadership, development and Christian service. The " Y " stands back of every wholesome activity in university life and is zealous of Trojan honor. It strives to uphold the highest ideals of manhood through the encouragement of clean living and in the development of the balanced life — Spirit, Mind, Body. One of its primary motives is to make possible in the most effective manner the influ- ence of all Christian students on all non-Christian and indifferent students. Throughout its work, it creates, fosters, and promotes the spirit of personal responsibility. Its ideals are the highest and its work constructive. The place of the ' A ' " in university life is justified inasmuch as it helps to create a college consciousness favorable to a vital and reasonable faith. How It Helps the Student For the new student particularly, the Y. M. C. A. edits and publishes a Uni- versity Handbook which serves to familiarize the student with University life. At the beginning of the College Year, Information Bureaus established by " Y " men are at the service of the students. An Employment Bureau in the past year located work for over ninety men. Some sixty men were aided through the Board and Room Committee. The Y. M. C. A. manages a Book Exchange for the benefit of the students and at the Hut maintains mail and telephone service. In the ' A ' . " the student forms those rich, valuable friendships which last for life. In the ' A ' " he receives those inspirational messages that stimulate him in living up to his best. In the ' A ' " he finds a place to work, to develop, and to serve. 124 R8F - -j E 2 - " v jc u ; - - • - j- M ji fcJ Ik X j I .- H jW ' . f ; • Hi At £ L L : l l kiHi S irn | L ■jl ' l ' l ' l ' Jg - " ■ v3ijf ■ »- V JL tSq (. t!

A. activity is to be found in the combined effort of twenty-one red-blooded Cabinet Officers and tbeir committeemen. These leaders are assisted by the Executive Secretary and the Faculty Advisory Hoard. The scope of the work is broad and the opportunities great. In weekly meetings, noted men from all walks of life firing their stories of success to the men students. At the Student Friendship Council weekly dinner prominent professors of the institution deliver their series of vital messages. A University " Hi Y " Club is carried on under the leadership of ' A ' " men. Students seeking opportunity for the development of Christian leadership are given tasks in connection with the weekly meetings of the one hundred boys of the community organized as the L ' niversity Junior Club. The Y. M. C. A. meets the social demands of young life in varied programs. Deputation teams repre- senting some ninety men have carried messages to over five thousand people in Southern California. The Y. M. C. A., assisted by the Y. W. C. A. and the Student Volunteer Hand, sent twenty-six delegates to the Student Volunteer Con- vention at Des Moines, Iowa, at Christmas time. Religious education guidance, foreign work, personal evangelism, and religious supply service with the active support of the College Devotional Hour, the J. . C. and We Boys classes, and other Christian organizations constitute the other activities of the Y. M. C. A. There is a task and a reward for everv man. Y. M. C. A.

WE BOYS Religion and fun are admirably intermingled in two organizations which meet at the Y. M. C. A.— J. O. C. for the girls ami " We Boys " for the men. Sunday morning at the " Y " Hut rinds quite a number of University students carrying on with their religious endeavors. The two organizations are absolutely undenominational. Principles which every Christian should uphold are taught and discussed. Discussion of campus topics and problems has proved to lie one of the most interesting and enlightening features. Being also social in purpose, these two organizations have given their mem- bers opportunity for many good times. From all reports, this has been a mos( successful year lor J. ( ). C. and " We Boys. " 131 HOME VOLUNTEER BAND The Home Volunteer Rand, organized in the University of Southern Cali- fornia in 1919, is one of the few of its kind in the country. It is composed of those students registered in Liberal Arts, who have dedicated their lives to a Christian or social service- in the Home held. By careful survey of the whole field, it seeks to help the student select his proper place in the great program of God, where he may put his particular talent to the largest possible use.

The object of the society is the study and advancement of Jewish culture and ideals, and the preparation of University men ami women fur intelligent service in the com- munity. Starting as a small gathering in a single college, the Menorah idea has spread with considerable rapidity over the Universities of America. The Asso- ciation held its Septennial Convention in December. 1919, in New York City. Begun two years ago, the local chapter has already established itself as a permanent institution here. In it, everyone of University standing in Southern California is eligible to membership, and its meetings are open to all. 134 LE CERCLE FRANCAIS OFFICERS President Olwen Thomas Vice-President [ IortensE Fulton Secretary Imne St. Pierre Treasurer Gertrude Gilmore Sarah Snow Edna Blackwood Annette Ives Monna Bethune Alice Dennison Lucy BlakE Buelah Goring Irene LiljEnberg Jeannette Leeevre Evangeline Hymer Dorothy Linn Josephine lds Eleanor MacIntosh Eunice Zimmerman Bertha Beaudry Alice Lizotte Helen Hargis MEMBERS M riox Neuls Marion Cam pbell Robert Broadwell Fr was Vittum Alice Phelps Maria Sesma Elmer Klamroth Frances Cattell Gertrude Gilmore H ellen North more Virginia Grannis aIyrxa Ei ' .ert Elizabeth Hughes I ll.l.KX X A I SMI I ' ll Hortense Fulton Irene St. Pierre Dorothy Walker Olwen Thomas 135 LA TERTULIA OFFICERS First Semester President melia Bissiri Secretary PHYLLIS HEPLER Treasurer Maria SESMA Second Semester ' resident PHYLLIS HEPLER Secretary ELLEN WlLMERT Treasurer BERYL Judd Comprising the membership of La Tertulia arc major students in the Spanish department and advanced students in Spanish.

It was organized in the first place to sing at the regular weekly chapel services, and was required of the Men ' s and Women ' s Glee Clubs. Membership was open to all others in the University. The second semester, the Choral was included as a music course in the schedule, and registrations were conducted as in other classes. The course is under the direction of Professor Cogswell of the College of Music and has for its object the study and appreciation of choral music and ora- torios. Besides the regular choral practice, the oratorio as a musical type has been studied as to its history and form. It is planned by the administration to make the Choral a permanent course in the University. The enrollment during the last semester was over ninety and it is hoped that the number will be increased next year. Resides being a regular college course, it has been organized into a social, self-governing body.

With the establishment of a major in art at the College of Liberal Arts, a need was felt by the art students for a departmental club. Palette and Brush was organized to meet that need. Miss Almah May Cook, instructor in the Art Department, was largely instrumental in accomplishing the organization of the society, while the other instructors in art have given it generous support. Through the sale of Christmas cards designed and painted by the members of the Art classes, the club secured sufficient funds to furnish and fit out as a studio and art gallery, one of the rooms in the Annex. The club expects very soon to be able to entertain some of California ' s noted artists at its monthly meetings. Several exhibitions of paintings have already been held in the studio.

With big enthusiasm and a large number of men out for debate, the year started with a bang when twenty-eight " silver- tongued " ' orators talked themselves black in the face in the tryouts for the fifteen positions on the Varsity debating squad. Those elected were Claude Reeves, Calvin Lauderbach, Roy Johnson, Harry Van Cleve, Gross Alexander, Leroy Keames, Louis D ' Flia, Richard Bird. Francis Selecman, Donald Warner, Charles 1 ' ad. lock. Merle McGinnis, Robert Carlquist and Roscoe White. From this squad were chosen the teams for each of our four scheduled debates. The squad members, meeting once a week, have acted as critics for the team members and as much as possible have assisted them in working up their material. The system has worked very well and much credit is due Man- ager Robinson and Coach Blanks, who inaugurated it. While we haven ' t won every debate, we have made a creditable showing in each one, and we have every reason to feel proud of our season. THE COACH U. S. C. was very fortunate this year in securing for her Debating Coach, Professor Blanks, who is a graduate of Vanderbilt University, class of ' 06, and ( )hio Wesleyan, M.A., class of ' 12. He has had a great deal of experience in coaching debate and has met with much success in various institutions. He coached at Ohio Wesleyan for three years, where his teams won the Middle West Championship, and at Colgate for two years, where he succeeded in walking away with the Eastern Championship. Coach Blanks has been well liked by all of the debaters, and even though handicapped by the limited time which he has been able to devote to debating, he has done some wonderfully effective work. 213 INTERCOLLEGIATE DEBATES Triangle Debate The first debate of the season was the usual Southern California triangle fray between Pomona, Oxy and U. S. C. upon the question: ' •Resolved, that the Coal Mines of the United States should be Nationalized. " ur home team, com- posed of D ' Elia, McGinnis and Carlquist, upheld the affirmative side of the question against Pomona. McGinnis and Carlquist. both of them new men at l " . S. C put up splendid constructive arguments, while D ' Elia ripped the negative case to pieces with his clear statements and clever sarcasm. This is D ' Elia ' s second season on the Varsity squad, and he has been going " great guns " this vear. The judges ' decision confirmed our clear-cut victory. Our negative team, over at ( Iccidental. did not fare quite so well. Reames, Bird and Paddock, handicapped by the necessity of upholding the weaker side of the question, were slightly outclassed, but they went down fighting, losing by the narrow margin of a two to one decision. College of the Pacific Debate ( In April 9th we sent our second debating team. Don Warner and Leroy Reames, up to " Tully " Knoles ' institution and. inasmuch as " Tully " selected the judges, we really didn ' t expect to win. The question was: " Resolved, that the I " nited States should become Mandatory for Mexico. " We upheld the affirmative. Even " Tully, " who entertained the boys afterward, admitted the decision belonged to us. but the judges felt differently. The boys certainly did get a warm reception at the beautiful Knoles home, however, and expressed the wish that the College of the Pacific debate be made an annual affair. The Stanford Debate At this time, our most important debate is yet to lie fought out. On May 14th, Stanford will meet us in our home auditorium on the question: " Resolved, that the L ' nited States should become Mandatory for Mexico. " As in the College of the Pacific debate, we will again uphold the affirmative. Our team, Claude Reeves, Calvin Lauderbacb and Louis D ' Elia. have been working upon their cases for more than a month. Reeves, our oldest debater, has taken an active part in debating and oratory ever since his entrance into the University four vears ago. He is a master upon the platform and his keen intellectual power and knowledge of debating tactics make him well nigh unbeatable. J. Calvin Lauder- bacb is another veteran who has successfully served U. S. C. in numerous past campaigns. He graduated from Santa Ana High School four years ago, and in this, his Senior year at I ' . S. C. he has firmly resolved that his final effort shall bring success to the University. He is an excellent speaker, and has a pleasing quality of tact ami sincerity which rarely fails to win a judge ' s vote. D ' Elia, although only a Sophomore, has already served in three debates for U. S. C, and is one of our most promising men. At Polytechnic High School lie won a name for himself as their foremost speaker. During his career at that institu- tion he never lost a debate, lie speaks fluently and has a remarkable command oxer the effective use of sarcasm. With the knowledge of the question derived from the College of the Pacific contest, and with the sincere work which our Stanford team lias done, both Coach Planks and Manager Robinson predict a certain victory for U. S. C. 214 University of Arizona Debate On April 22nd, Calvin Lauderbach and Louis D ' Klia journeyed over to Tucson, Arizona, in order to convince three obstinate judges that the " teachers should not affiliate with the American Federation of Labor. " Our boys arrived in town at a very poor time, for on the day before, representatives of the Arizona teachers had convened at Tucson to perfect a union for that very purpose. On the night of the 22nd, 400 of the pedagogues packed the University auditorium with the avowed intention of doing violence to any judge who dared vote for the negative side. In the face of such public opinion, Calvin and Louis put up a valiant fight, but once again we lost a close decision. The Year Although not entirely satisfactory as to decision, nevertheless we have every reason to feel proud of our debating season. Our men have put up clean-cut, keen, hard fights, and in every case the decision has been in doubt until the judges ' votes have been counted. Out of our squad of fifteen, we are losing only two men by graduation, and with such seasoned debaters as Reames, D ' Elia, Bird, Paddock, Warner, Carlquist and McGinnis as a nucleus for next year, our future prospects are very bright. We cannot give too much praise to Coach Blanks and Robinson for the enthusiasm in debating which the} ' have generated throughout the University. 215 ORATORY With the passing of the European War and of John Barleycorn, two of the traditional U. S. C. oratorical contests died a natural death. These were the peace and prohibtiion prizes. The " old line " contest still remains, and also a new departure which was instituted last year by the Southern California Japanese Association for the purpose of promoting and perpetuating better relations between Japan and the United States. Each of these contests is open to all colleges and universities in Southern California, and for each a local preliminary is held. To encourage interest in oratorical work, our University offers one semester ' s tuition to the winner of each local contest. In last year ' s competition, Lambert Baker, now a student at Del ' an University, was selected to represent the school in the old line contest at Occidental. In the face of heavy competition, he won first place for U. S. C. This year there are several men preparing for our preliminary, which is to be held May 10th, and a worthy representative for U. S. C. is assured. The intercollegiate finals are to be held May 20th at the University of California, Southern Branch. In last year ' s Japanese contest we were represented by Stanley Sutton, who has been rapidly coming to the front in oratorical and debating work and who won second place in the Southern California contest. A large cash prize offered to the first place winner of the intercollegiate competition by the Japanese Asso- ciation of Southern California, should make this contest exceedingly popular this vear. THE BOWEN CUP CONTEST Some years ago W. M. Bowen, to whom this hook i dedicated, realizing the benefits of debating and wishing to further the forensic art in the University, presented us with an endowment, the interest of which is used each year for the purchase of six silver loving cups to be presented to the winners of the Bowen Debating Contest. Accordingly, on March 18th. the general Bowen Cup question was announced ■ — the Presidential Campaign of 1920. As twenty-nine men entered the contest, it was necessary to hold a preliminary elimination contest on April 26th. The debating was extemporaneous on the subject: " Resolved, that Hiram Johnson should receive the Republican Nomination for President. " Twelve men were selected for the finals, which were held Thursday night. April 29th, in the Chapel, on the question: " Resolved, that it will be to the best interests of the United States to return the Democratic Administration in the National election of November, l ' »20. " The six cup winners were: First. Voltaire Perkins: sec- ond, Edgar llervcy; third. David Tannenbaum; fourth, Stanley Sutton: fifth, Ugene Blalock; sixth. Charles Paddock. PUBLICATIONS _ 217 EL RODEO Each year the [unior class of the University of Southern California has the privilege of publishing El Rodeo. It is a pleasure to " round up " the events of the University year, to note the achievements of our student body, and the triumphs of our athletes. Since the book published by the class of 1916, El Rodeo has been a real " round up " : for this was the first year that all the colleges of the University united their efforts in a single hook. From this time on the Greater University Spirit has grown, and we feel sure that El Rodeo, 1921, will represent, more than ever before, a united University. The faculty of the University has been one of the mam factors in bringing this about, and ' El Rodeo, 1921, is especially indebted to the faculty committee. Tlie committee— Professor Festus E. Owen, chairman: Dr. Ezra A. Healy, Pro- fessor Marc X. Goodnow and Dr. l.e Roy S. Weatherby— has been most untiring in its efforts to help make the hook a success. The Junior class greatly appreciates the work and time that each has given so willingly. .MS THE ALUMNI MAGAZINE The Alumni Magazine, published by the alumni of the College of Liberal Arts of the University, first appeared in June. 1917. The second edition appeared in December, 1919. The publication committee of the 1919 e lition was composed of the following: Mildred Wellborn, ' 12. Chairman; -Mary Bowen, ' IS; Ruth Brown, ' 03; Ralph Burnight, ' 18; Hugh Willett, ' 07; Florence Hurst. ' 11: Reuel Olson. ' 18; Roy Thompson, ' 13, and Ruth Watson, ' 18. Much credit is due them for the superior quality of the magazine. ( )ne of the special features of the magazine is a directory of all the graduates of Liberal Arts, as far as could be obtained. It also contains many items of interest about the University and news notes of prominent alumni arranged by classes. The alumni are now planning to publish a quarterly magazine, the first edition of which is to appear in June, 1920. It is planned to print 1500 copies, which will be sent free to all alumni with an appeal for subscriptions. Its success will determine the number to be published in the future. THE HANDBOOK The Student ' s Handbook is published by the Young men ' s an 1 Young Women ' s Christian Associations of the University of Southern California. It appears at the beginning of the first semester and is distributed free to all new students. It contains much valuable information for Freshmen and other new students, as a list of the organizations at the University, the academic calendar. University songs, yells, and traditions. The editors for the 1919-1920 Handbook were Lewis Kaye, ' 21. and .Marion Curtis, ' 21. THE SOCIOLOGICAL MONOGRAPH The Sociological Monographs are publishe 1 by the Sociological Society of Southern California. They deal with some of the most important social problems of the day, as is proved by the fact that requests have been received from various parts of the Unite 1 States, Europe, and Asia for copies of the monographs. Dr. Emory S. Bogardus, head of the Sociological Department of the Uni- versity, is editor of the monographs. The four which have been published this year are : " The Finn in Lanesville, Massachusetts, " by Miss Helen Babson. " Causes of Delinquency Among Fifty Xegro Boys, " by Homer Watson. " Community ( Irganization, " by Prof. Clarence E. Rainwater. " The Japanese in Rural Los Angeles County. " by Ralph Burnight. The Sociological Monographs published during the year have brought credit not alone to the authors of the various studies, but also to the Sociological 1 )epartment. THE YELLOW DOG The Yellow Dog. for the second time in the history of the University, appeared on the campus. It was published, as before, by the pledges of Sphinx and Snakes, the honor society of the Junior class. The editorial proclaimed the fact that the purpose of " The Yellow Dog " was " to speak words of Golden Truth. " If it spoke the truth, some startling things were announced. The joke department was especially good, and some of the jokes from " The Yellow Dog " are still being repeated about the campus. Perhaps their lasting quality is due to thei r truthfulness. 219 THE TROJAN On Monday, September 2 { K 1919, the first day of school, the Trojan appeared on the Campus, ' edited by Tom Metcalfe and his staff. Unlike previous years. when it took six weeks or two months to get the staff organized and in working order, the Trojan started for good and in earnest the first week of the term and has continued regularly until the end of the year. All the first semester, and most of the second semester, the Trojan came out four times a week — Tuesday. Wed- nesday, Thursday and Friday. Toward the end of the second semester, due to the shortage of paper, it was necessary to limit the Trojan to two issues a week instead of four. Paul V. Greene, a Freshman, took over the management of the papers the early part of the second semester, and it improved and grew in size to a noticeable degree from that time to the end of the year. Professor Marc Goodnow of the Department of Journalism was untiring in his work for the Trojan. A great deal of credit is due to him for the success of the I ' . S. C. Trojan this year.

After some investigan, Trojan students learned that it was the little " Wampus " which had just been born. A month later the kitten appeared again, this time much better developed, but in January it came on the campus a full- faced, howling, spitting, scratching, yellow-eyed, back-fence cat. In three months from the time of its first issue, the U. S. C. " Wampus " became one of the best university monthly magazines in the country. In three months its size increased from 8 to 28 pages, and its circulation grew from a few- hundred to " less than a million a month, " as advertised. The " Wampus " was published for laughing purposes only, and contained the best of wit in articles, cartoons, and jokes. The " Wampus " was first thought of by II. Aubry Miller, of the Law School, who became its first editor-in-chief. Miller worked to make it a publication that could compare favorably with the best university magazines in the country, and his success in accomplishing his purpose was nothing short of phenomenal. Closely associated with Miller was Hal Hughes, who became the editor when the former left for a vacation in March. Besides furnishing fun for the students of I " . S. C. the " Wampus " has been an invaluable advertising agent for the University. It has gone all over the country, and quotations from the University of Southern California " Wampus " have been printed in every comic magazine of note in the United States. The " Wampus " has been put out by the " Ivory Club, " which has numbered among its members students of all the different Colleges of U. S. C. The " Wampus " staff was as follows: Bditori-n-Chief II.

Bruce., Graduate Manager. I have been asked to write a brief summary of the season ' s activity in ath- letics and will review the sports in the order of their occurrence. First is football, king of intercollegiate sport. It was somewhat doubtful at the beginning of the year just what we were going to do in this sport. Our new coach, Mr. Henderson, was on the job, but few people knew anything about him. lie was full of glooms and pessimism, and the melancholy days swooped down upon us. He contracted the surname of Gloomy Gus. and such he was. But with twenty-two faithful men, five of whom had never played football before, he suc- cessfully carried out one of the biggest schedules of American football we have had tor some time. Our only defeat was a moral victory. Not only was the season a success in victories but financially as well. ( ver 850 season tickets were disposed of and Bovard Field was packed to capacity at almost every game. We were somewhat handicapped in basketball by our need of a suitable court. We were able, however, to secure the L.A.A.C. floor for practice and competition. A good team was developed and a fine spirit was prevalent among the players. Right here let me voice the urgent need for a gymnasium. We can never do much with minor sports until this much-needed building is provided. A gym- nasium would do more than any other agency to develop physical exercise and to create in the student body of U. S. C. a class conscientious, solidarity of sentiment. and an inter-university and student loyalty. We have no means at present of bringing th e student body together where they can get acquainted and really develop a contagion of mutual interest. Q. S. C. men do not stick together when they leave the institution and due to the fact that this spirit is never engendered in their undergraduate days. The University authorities will do well to heed the cry of the student body for more adequate athletic facilities and for more creative activity in fostering and encouraging that loyalty to one ' s alma mater which is only contracted during residence at college. We were very fortunate again this year to have Mr. Cromwell as track coach, and everybody was glad to see him back in the institution which he has so well served in the past. The enforcement of the Freshman rule worked some difficulty on the team in the matter of numbers. The squad was rich in quality if not in quantity. Our big meets with California and Stanfo rd were ably contested. In the annual A.A.I ' , meet we scored 62 points to 20 of our nearest rival. Pomona College. Baseball is well under way. Our team this year is considered by critics to be the best in Southern California. To date we have not lost a game, nor doc- it look as though we would. A fine bunch of fellows are playing the game and Coach Henderson is well pleased with their spirit and enthusiasm. Thanks to the efforts of James Woodward (Varsity football man), we were able for the first time to put an intercollegiate competitive boxing team in the field. The sport is still in progress. Mr. Woodward deserves considerable credit for his work with the men and for his services as a regular member of the team. In closing permit me to express the thanks of the athletic department to the student body for their loyal support of the teams. Without this support we would have been a failure. Especially are we grateful to Student Body President Claude Reeves, Student Athletic Manager Paul l ' .eale. the Executive Committee, and other student body officials who have aided to make the past year the best ever and to enhance the prestige of the school to which we are all devoted. Now for next year — the outlook is brighter. With a new workable consti- tution, with Coaches Henderson and Cromwell back again, with our new buildings, and with increased enthusiasm, we look forward with confidence to 1920-21. Let ' s make it big. Q. S.

Winning four out of five hard contests, and losing the one by but one point, the Trojan squad won the reputation of being one of the best in the West, being one of the three teams considered by the football committee of the Pasadena Tournament of Roses Association as western champion to play Harvard University, chosen as eastern champion, at Pasadena on New Year ' s Day. Oregon was picked to represent the West in the game, but the Northerners were closely pressed for the championship honors by I " . S. C. Coach Elmer Henderson, the new mentor from Seattle, sent out a call for football men for practice on September 22. By the time school had started, a good-sized squad had reported and practice was well under way. Graduate Manager Henry Bruce was responsible for the Trojan ' s unusually good schedule, which called for all five games to be played on Bovard Field. Starting with a 6-0 victory over Pomona. L " . S. C. defeated Jccidental by a 27-0 score, barely lost to the heavy California team by the count of 14-13. defeated the University of Utah 2X-7 , and walloped Stanford in the final game by the score of 13-0. The Trojans possessed a remarkably well balanced team: however, that galaxv of stars picked for the All- Star Southern. State and Pacific Coast elevens are as follows: Probably the best center seen in this vicinity for years was Eddie Simpson, who landed a position on the All-Southern, All-State and All- Pacific Coast elevens. " Swede " Evans, who featured the games by his brilliant work at tackle, and his high-class booting, was chosen for the All-Southern and All-State team. Evans is captain-elect of the 1920 varsity. Captain Fox, guard: Smith, end; Dean, halfback, and Leadingham, fullback, were selected in their positions for the All-Southern eleven. The men composing the Trojan Varsity were: ley, Simpson, Townsend, Evans, Smith. MacMillan Lockett, Packer. Clemmens, Isenhouer, Woodwan Toolen, Captain Fox, Lincle- Stewart, Dean, Leadingham. Wilcox, Hester, Cox, Axe, Beale, Chestnut. Robinson, E. Whitcomb, C. Butterfield. 228 U SC- UTA H use. POMONA U.5.C CALIFORNIA STANFORD 22 ' Varsity-Pomona In the first game of the season, Pomona was defeated by the Trojans in a hard-fought game by the score of 6-0 on Bovard Field. The contest conclusively showed that the Cardinal and Gold possessed a team that would have to he recognized in the fight for the State Championship. The Pomona invaders were out-generaled and out-played in every department of the game. In the middle of the first half, the Trojans started a drive for the Pomona goal that resulted in the only touchdown of the game. After a series of line plunges, forward passes, and runs, Leadingham threw a well-directed forward pass to McMillan, stationed behind the goal line, scoring six points. The rest of the game was filled with exchanges of punts between Leadingham and Cham bers. with Leadingham the favorite. Pomona made first downs only once. How- ever, just as the last whistle blew. Dean intercepted a forward pass that would probablv have ended in a touchdown. The whole I ' . S. C. team must be given credit for their splendid cooperation. The backfield displayed a brilliant type of ball, while the line showed the fighting spirit that Coach Henderson has instilled into them. Varsity-Stanford On Thanksgiving Day the Varsity triumphantly ended the gridiron season by decisively beating Stanford 13-0. The game took place on Bovard Field. The Trojans proved beyond a doubt that they had one of the strongest elevens in the West by out-playing and out-fighting the Palo Alto gridders every minute of the game. Had not several crucial breaks gone against them, the U. S. C. men would have had more touchdowns, as they greatly outclassed Stanford in every department of the game. The smashing line plunges of Dean through the Stanford 200-pound line. and the clever broken field running that featured the game, were responsible for the majority of yardage. The work of Packer, both o 1 the offensive and defensive, and the consistent brainy generalship of MacMillan at quarter, were unbeatable. The line proved to be easily the peer of the Cards ' forwards. Eddie Simpson at Center, l ' .eale and Evans at tackles. Fox at guard, and Smith at end, did their work valiantly, as did the rest id " the team. In the second quarter, after the Trojans had plunged their way within striking distance of the Cardinal goal, Leadingham went through tackel for the first touch- down. The first half ended with first down for I ' . S. C. on Stanford ' s one-yard line, and the score at 6-0 in favor of the Trojans I . S. C. kept the ball continually in the enemy territory during the second half, but score 1 only once more, when Dean crashed through center over the line and Evans converted. 231 1 with the University of Utah, Varsity-Utah The fourth game of the season was played November 15, on Bovard Field. The Utes arrived in Los Angeles with a great reputation and hopes for victory, having defeated all of the Rocky Mountain elevens with the exception of the Colorado Aggies. The Salt Lake gridders were sent back the losers of a fast, well-played game resulting in a score of 2H-7. As before, the scoring ability of the Trojans lay in their class in following the ball and taking advantage of the breaks in the game, in addition to being superior in football knowledge. Leadingham made the first touchdown for the Trojans on recovering a fumble and shiftly speeding his way for fifteen yards. After many exchanges of punts and end-runs, another touchdown was added to the score when Isenhour fell on the ball over the goal line after a Utah punt was blocked by Simpson. In the second period. Woodward, Trojan quarter, went over the line on a pass from Dean. The Utes staged a magnificent comeback in the third period by fighting their way from their own twenty-yard line with several line bucks ami brilliant end runs by Captain Romney. quarterback. Romney put the hall over and converted for the only Utah score. Just before the final whistle blew, Packer, Trojan half, carried the ball over for the last score. Varsity-Occidental Chagrined over the loss of their mascot, the Tigerless Tigers from Occidental came to U. S. C. with the expectation of trouncing the Trojans. They were sadly mistaken, and left the field after being subjected to a 27-0 defeat by Coach I tenderson ' s superior gridiron artists. In the first five minutes of play, Jimmy Smith snagged an Oxy fumble and scored the first touchdown. Evans converted. After several penalties and several line bucks and passes. Dean chalked up a second touchdown. A little later, after Fox recovered on the Tigers ' forty-yard line. Dean crashed through the ( xy line, making the count 20-0. With victory practically certain, the second-string men were sent in in the middle of the second half. ' Packer scored after a buck through center, preceded by a pass. Kvans kicked goal, leaving the score 27-0. The entire U. S. C. team played good football. Stuart. Dean and Leadingham showed up particularly well in the backfield. while Fox, Evans, Simpson, Beale and Smith starred in the line. . ' 31 Varsity-California With the odds against them, the Trojans met the University of California eleven on Bovard Field, November 8. The Blue and Cold team came smith with a formidable list of victories to their credit, and were claimed to be one of the most powerful football machines on the Pacific Coast. Before a record crowd of 9,000 people. Coach Henderson ' s fighting Trojans fought the Blue and Gold almost to a standstill and were finally defeated, 14-13. Outweighed and doped to lose by five touchdowns, the Trojans showed fighting spirit and were on the ball at all times, taking advantage of the breaks of the game at every opportunity. Late in the first quarter, Eddie Simpson, Trojan center, neatly intercepted a pass from Rowe and. ably helped by good interference, sprinted fifty yards of open field to a touchdown. Evans kicked goal. The second break came in the second quarter when " Dummy " Wells, California fullback, fumbled on the U. S. C. thirty-yard line. Charlie Dean snagged the pigskin and ran three- quarters of the length of the field, putting the ball over the line. The goal was missed, leavi ng the score 13-0 in favor of the Cardial and Gold. In the second half, the Hears crashed with all their power and finally scored and converted, after a forward pass from Rowe to Cline. In the last of the third quarter, the California team went through for the winning digits. A for- ward pass, netting 20 yards, and successive line plunges ended in a Hear touch- down. Cline converted, making the final score 14-13. In the last period neither goal was in danger. The entire Trojan eleven played wonderful football. Those especially worthy of commendation were Dean. Ceadinghain and MacMillan in the backfield, and Smith, Evans, box, Simpson ami Beale in the line. Freshmen Season By playing through the season with only one defeat, that inflicted by the University of California " Babes, " the Freshmen established a record for suc- ceeding first-year men to shoot at for some time to come. Manual Arts fell before the Frosh, 14-0; Cos Angeles High, 9-0; Polytechnic, 39-0; Coronado High School, 20-12; and Occidental Freshmen, 14-7. The California game was played under adverse circumstances, the long trip north and the unfamiliarity with the field costing U. S. C. the game by a 20-12 score. The regular squad was made up of the following men: Greene, L.E. ; Boyle, L.T. ; Farman, E.G.; Lindley, C. ; Hendrickson, ICG; Calland, R.T. ; Egan, R.E.; Gillingham, (J.: Wayahn, E.I I.: Leahy, R.I I.: Chapman, E Sub- stitutes: Gordon. King. Stevens, Thoreau, Atwood, Redd, Cline, Peterson, Moi ire and Arnett. 232 233 BASKETBALL TEAM Charles AinELY, Captain Fred Axe Alfred ButterfiEld Clarence ButterfiEld Howard ButterfiEld Fred Hendricks Grant Kuhns Charles Graham George Boeck William IsEnhauER Elmer Henderson, Coach 234 XI 23S STUDENT ATHLETIC MANAGER ' S STATEMENT The year just closing has proved to be the most successful one in athletics that U. S. C. has had since the balmy days of 1912, when Rugby was supreme. Football was an unqualified success, both from a financial standpoint and from the creditable team put on the field. Basketball and track were both featured by the unusual enthusiasm and spirit evinced by the student body. Baseball has returned as a major sport; and under Coach Henderson is assured of a successful season. The student ticket was greatly instrumental in adding interest to football. It is to be greatly hoped that the season ticket will be put on sale again next year, for by selling a reasonable number to the students and faculty, will result an increased interest by the townspeople to attend the games. U. S. C. has hit its pace in athletics: great things are expected of the football and track teams next year, and with the support of the student body, there is no reason why they should not succeed. 1. Paul BealE. THE OPENING OF THE SEASON With a great abundance of individual stars, but with no second and third place winners to back the first place men. it can well lie said that the Trojan track season was both successful and unsuccessful. In every meet U. S. C. showed its supremacy by emerging with the lion ' s share of first place honors. Paddock never failed to win his race; Big " Swede " Evans took the shot-put and discus as methodically as clockwork: Schiller and Captain Wilson were always sure bets. ( nly the necessary backing of smaller point winners was lacking to turn the tide to victory. BEARS vs. TROJANS In the meet with California, held on Bovard Field March 20th. the Bear aggregation proved loo much for the Trojan speedsters, who went down to their first defeat by a 7 1.. to 45% score. Paddock ran the hundred in 10 flat and won the 220 with ease. Schiller and Wilson tied in the quarter mile and Wilson took the half. Evans won both weight events. The Northerners took the meet on second and third place. THE MEET WITH STANFORD A great deal of enthusiasm was displayed over the Stanford meet in that Paddock would clash with Morris Kirksey, the Cardinals ' much-touted sprinter. The Trojan sprinter was not only expected to he given a run for his money, but some even went so far as to prophesy that the Stanford superman would win both the 100 and 200. Paddock took the 100 with ease and won the 220 by yards. Lack of small point winners also lost this meet. Schiller took the quarter and Captain Wilson the half. Noel George ran a pretty race in the mile for a first. " Swede " Evans took both the shot and discus. 236 G-JfOR e | a The A?m t 237 W. Hson ( Captaii A. A. U. RELAY CARNIVAL At Patterson Field. Occidental College, the Trojans were well represented in the annual A. A. I ' . Relay Carnival. March 30th U. S. C. took twice as many points as any other school competing. Paddock and Schiller placed first and second respectively in the 100-vard dash. The Cardinal and Gold won the one-mile eight-man relay with a fast team composed of the following: Woods, Wilcox, Isenhouer, Paddock, Wright. Leahy, Nichols and Schiller. In the four-man one-mile relay the Trojans placed second. Schiller. Isenhouer. Wilson and Wilcox made up the team. TROJANS ' NORTHERN TRIP The Trojan track team invaded the North in the latter part of the season and met the Stanford and California cinder artists in two dual meets at Palo Alto and Berkeley, April 8th and 10th, respectively. At Stanford the meet resulted in a 77 to 45 victory for the Palo Altoans. U. S. C. ' s lack of second and third place men forced her to defeat, as was the case in the former meets. Paddock again decisively defeated Kirksey in both the 100 and 220 yard dashes. Schiller ran a fast first in the quarter -mile race, while Captain Wilson won the 880-yard run. Noel George captured the mile, and " Swede " Evans duplicated his past performances, winning both the shot put and discus throw. U. S. C. won the relay. The Trojans were badly defeated by the Hears at Berkeley, the final score being 01 to 31. Paddock negotiated the century dash in ' 4 S seconds and took the furlong. Schiller won the 440 and Wilson took fir--t in the half-mile. George won a bitterly contested two-mile run. Evans annexed first place in the discus and took third in the shot put. The Bears won the relay. The following men made the trip: Wilson, Paddock. Schiller, Evans, Wilcox, Mickey, Isenhouer. Miller. George, Chestnut and Bushmeyer. 238 =.c-. % A. A. U. TRACK MEET The Trojans easily won the A. A. U. track meet held at Pomona College, April 17th. U. S. C. annexed a total of 63 points, with Pomona College a poor second with 23 digits; Redlands came third with 13. Paddock took both dashes, and Schiller easily defeated the much-heralded Kilby of Redlands in the 440-yard dash. Captain Wilson romped away with the half-mile and George took the mile, and second place in the two-mile. Evans won the shot put. while Boyle annexed first in the discus. Leadingham placed second in the pole vault, and Bushmeyer took second place in the hop, skip and jump. Redlands University won the relay, with U. S. C. placing second and I ' oiin ma third. FRESHMEN TRACK The Freshmen track season resulted very successfully for the Frosh and in bringing out new material for future track seasons. A large number of new men and experienced high school athletes competed for the 1923 squad, and a wealth of high-class material came in evidence. The Frosh easily defeated the Lincoln and Polytechnic High School cinder aggregations, and were heaten by Manual Arts by a small margin. Boyle, Leahy. Leadingham, Farman. Wright, Lewis. Al Nichols, Art Nichols. Grossman. Min- skey and Emmons were consistent point wi nners for the first-year men. 239 240 HIKING CLUB Hiking, with its kindred delights, has been introduced as a part of the activ- ities of the women ' s physical education department this year. Under the direction of -Mrs. Paul Spencer Wood, head of the department, and )lwen Thomas, presi- dent of the organization, the hiking club, organized this year, lias enjoyed a hike each mi mth. Althought Sturdivant ' s, Fern Lodge and Camp Baldy were visited, perhaps the most enjoyable trip of the year was that made to ( )pid ' s Camp on the west fork of the San Gabriel River. The " sturdy seven, " as the women who made the trip were called, left Los Angeles early in the morning and started up .Mount Lowe. About half way up they encountered patches of snow, and upon going a little further, discovered that great snow banks lay on either side of the trail. ( ne native daughter displayed her ignorance of the nature of frozen anna by exclaiming, " Why. it ' s soft! ' Whereupon, she was initiated with a snow hath. A steaming supper at )pid ' s was sufficient reward for the long, cold hike. The next morning, after inspecting the immense icicles, the pride of Opid ' s heart, the party regretfully started up the snow-laden trail for Los Angeles. The snow on the tall pine trees glistened brightly in the morning sun. and the snow crunched happily under the feet of the hikers as they puffed up the steep trail to Mount Lowe, on their way back to civilization from the snowy realm of a thousand delights. 241 242 WOMEN ' S ACTIVITIES U. S. C. was represented at the twenty-fifth annual Ojai tournament, held April 16-17, at Ojai, by the following women: Mildred McKim I Captain ), 1st. I ieulah Coring, 2nd. Hilda Blatz, 3rd.

Handsome silver loving cups were awarded the winners of the Intercollegiate singles and doubles. Later in the year our Women ' s team met Pomona, Fullerton Junior College and the Southern I ' .ranch of University of California in dual meets and return meets at each of the schools. 243 BASKETBALL Basketball has again been revived. Of all the sports in which women take part, it seems to be the favorite, and much interest has been manifested this year. Lively competition between classes has been the chief cause for the increased enthusiasm. Basketball this season began about the first of December and ended shortly after Christmas. During the season a number of inter-class games were held. the upper-class women defeating the Freshmen girls, in the series, by a small score. The ambition of the teams is to arrange games with Marlborough, Whittier and Westlake.

' 44 swimming Swimming is one of the must popular sports for women, perhaps holding the next place after tennis. About seventy-five are enrolled in the two classes, be- ginners and advanced. All forms of swimming and diving are taught as rapidly as the pupils advance, special emphasis being placed upon correct form. Main- more come out for the annual meet held early in May. The events on this occasion are: T.ackstroke race, one length of tank; side stroke, two lengths; free style, one length, plunge for distance; life-saving drill and exhibition of life saving; a relay race; diving; and fancy stunts, such as an obstacle race and fancy floating. This meet determines definitely the members of the swimming team. So far this year, three of the six members have been chosen as follows: ( Mrs. ) Dorothy Baruch, .Mildred Smith, and Mariquita Wardman. At present, the swimming classes and the annual meet are held at Wilkinson ' s Pool, hut with the present plans for new buildings and equipment, the University expects to have a tank of its own in the near future. It is anticipated that a tank on the campus will increase the interest in this already popular sport. 245 Jtd THE KNIITT SHOP Clarence; O. Perkins, Sarah Snow Now, Folks, we all know that this )ld World of ours sometimes looks ju t a little blue and dark to us. things seem to get all clouded up and the sunshine don ' t come through like it ought to; it just seems as though we were made to feel hlue some times, don ' t it? But do you ever stop and think how nice it woidd be if yon had something that would drive away the clouds, wash the Windows of Life and let the sunshine in, to drive away the blues and brighten up the shadows. Wouldn ' t that be great? Well, right here it is, that window washing something, in the form of the KNUTT SIL )P, and when you linger and smile over some of the foolishness that must take up a part of our lives, recorded here we will know- that at the task of window washing the KNUTT SHOP has fulfilled its purpose. Sincerely, Si Perkins, Sarah Snow. THE RHYME OF THE JOLLY MARINER In Part It is a ji illy Mariner. And he stoppeth one of three. " By tin war-colored necker-chief, Now wherefore stopp ' st thou me? " The Little Blond ' s eyes opened wide. She was so very trim ; " The rest have gone, the dance is on: May ' st hear the merry din. " I le holds her with his tattooed hand, " There was a girl, " quoth he. " Hold oft " , unhand me, you fresh thing " Eftsoon his hand dropped he. He holds her with his glittering eye — The lilond stood very still, And listens like a three years ' child : The Mariner hath his will. The Little lilond did heave a sigh: She cannot choose but hear ; And thus spake on that Jolly man. The bright-eyed Mariner. " She was a lilond, an honest one. Ami merrily did we drop I pon a bench, within the park. Below the searchlight top. The moon came up upon the left, Out of the trees came She. She shone so bright, and with her light Just seemed to smile at me. 247 Higher, higher every hour. Just like a naughty moon — The Little Blond here beat her breast For she heard the loud jazzoon. The dance was started within the hall As happy as can be ; Shaking their shoulders to the tune Of the merry minstrely. The Little Blond she beat her breast, Vet she cannot choose but hear ; And thus spake on that jolly man, The bright-eyed Mariner. " And now the searchlight came, and it Was tyrannous and bright ; It struck us with its erlighting beam And caused us awful fright. With blushing cheek and icy brow. As well she should have had. For ' twas embarrassment, no doubt. And so she hid her head. The light was here, the light was there. The light was all around : It danced and laughed with glee At what it had found. Moment after moment, moment after moment. We stuck, nor did we dare to flinch As idle as a painted couple Upon a painted bench. Light, light, everywhere. The shadow all did shrink: Light, light everywhere, I couldn ' t even think. The Little Blond did cry ( . yes, That ever this should lie. To be caught there in the park so dark Just a-loving me. Now I had done a foolish thing. Ami it did work me woe. For all averr ' d, I had picked a bird Already married, so. Ah, ha, says I. this bird is sly — It ' s time for me to go. 248 But alas, alack, it was too late, For there before me stood A man with a club, three feet long Made of the hardest wood. Then like a pawing horse let go, He made a sudden bound; lie flung that club upon my head. And 1 fell to the ground. How long 1 lay there 1 cannot say; 1 have not to declare : But ere my living life returned I heard, and in my soul discern ' d, A vi ice upon the air. Around, around flew each little sound. Then darted all in fun : Slowly the voice came hack again. I just could hear it hum. ' Is it you? " quoth he, " Are you the man That made that sad mistake? Now well you know, my lad, it ' s wrong Another man ' s wife to take. " Like one that on a lonesome road Doth walk in fear and dread, I walked nor did I look around — Just nursed my aching head. Now, Blondy, dear, you listen here. And mark the things 1 say. Was that the right kind of a game Upon a sailor to play ? Farewell, farewell, hut this 1 tell To thee, thou Blondy head : He square to all the sailors hold And tell them if you are wed. Si I ' Kkkixs. 249 " SNOW DROPS " Heard from one of the windows of the Meta Phi House late at night. (A rambling tune I : I wish I were a little egg.

Apologies to P. V. G. : Little Stevie, Sigma Chi : Martha Curtis, Beta Phi. Little Stevie. Very small ; Martha Curtis. Very tall. Little Stevie Doesn ' t care. Just so long As .Martha ' s there.

On November 5 a Hallowe ' en Party took place, and it was one of the most brilliant affairs given. Clever stunts were performed both by faculty and students. The biggest day of our whole school year is " President ' s Day. " We plan and look forward to this with great enthusiasm. On January 29 we entertained the President of our great University, Dr. G. F. Bovard. We received much inspiration from the address which Dr. Bovard delivered, and we also learned of the plans for the new buildings and campus. Mrs. Bovard, Dean . F. Skeele and Mrs. W. F. Skeele also were guests of honor. ( )n December 12 we entertained the Choral Club. ( n March 2? we gave a partv in honor of the Choral and Glee Clubs. ' Our Glee Club has given many successful concerts during the season, and has been cordially welcomed in every city or town in which it has appeared. March 27 the Men ' s Glee Club started on a tour through the North and gave several successful concerts. Another of the main features of the year was the concerts given by two of our Faculty members. Mr. Davol Sanders, violinist, and Miss C. Adelaide Trow- bridge, pianist. , . Miss Carolyn V Alchin. a member of our Faculty who is on leave ot absence paid us a visit, as also did Mrs. Robbins, who was a Faculty member for several years. Faculty and students were delighted to see them again, although for only a short visit. The students have been wearing the tennis court smoothe and we hope to have a fine tennis team before long. Now that the war is over, we have quite as many men as women in our Student Body, a fact which changes our war-time name, • ' ' Young Ladies ' Seminary, " back to the original name. Dean Skeele ' s pupils have organized themselves into the I . S. C. Opollo Club which meets once a month. The objects of the Club are the development of greater ease in public performance, the study of composers and their works, and the " promotion of greater friendship among the students.

The Y. M. C. A. Hut has been used this year for an auditorium, hut when the new building is finished we are looking forward to adequate stage equipment which will give a new impetus to our public productions. Both programs were balanced emotionally, including comedy, tragedy, and the artistic — they played to good houses and were pronounced a decided success. Neighbors Time: Present.

All three sources of knowledge are to lie found in the Maclay School of Theology, hut especially are the last two to he found very prominently in the Pauline Asso- ciation. This organization is composed of the Student Body of the School of Theology and was organized for the development of the student along the lines pertinent to his future work. The contact with other students, learning their viewpoint, entering into dis- cussions relative to Christian activities in individual fields and a thorough investi- gation of the problems confronting each student pastor and worker, gives the participant a broader outlook upon the work at large. And then as the most fundamental thing in the life of the student, the Pauline Association emphasizes the devotional side and has set aside one day a month for prayer. However, the benefits of the Association are not confined to the Spiritual only, hut the Literary and Recreational Elements enter largely into the activities which the student may enjoy. The student is given the opportunity to develop along parliamentarian lines, and is given excellent drill in public speaking and debate, which tend to lit him to take his place in public affairs. In addition to the above, the Pauline holds an annual picnic and hike at which the faculty, as well as the student body, enjoy the freedom of the open air. The time for this annual event has been set for the 15th of May. AETHiUR T. IIoi ' .smn, President. AN APPRECIATION In the Greater University five million dollar endowment and equipment cam- paign of 1918, the purse strings of many a poor Methodist home and of other kind friends were opened wide unto sacrifice in order to strengthen the theological school. The appeal for this department was the most winning of any in the entire campaign. The rank and file of the church appreciate the value of a depart- ment of theology and they expect it to he equipped second to none in the university. Awaiting in hope that funds from that drive may soon he made available in sufficient amounts for a greater Maclay College of Theology, we are grateful for Maclay as it is. ( )ur faculty with meager remuneration and inadequate equipment have done splendidly. It " is a university education in itself to come into intimate relation with our beloved dean, Dr. Ezra A. Healy. The teachers in the school of theology are sympathetic, patient, scholarly ministers who emphasize the spiritual. The school is neither old-fashioned nor crazy for newfangled ideas. We are grateful for the companionship of teacher and students. We are glad to attend Maclay College of Theology. We appreciate its past, and hope for a great future. God will reap a harvest from the beginnings which have been made. Frank Raymond Newman, Senior. 7 MACLAY PICNIC Theological department students enjoyed the annual Maclay picnic at Dr. and Mrs. John A. Hill ' s cabin near Sierra Maclre this year. More than the usual number of students took advantage of the opportunity to spend the day in the mountains. The day was spent resting, playing games and enjoying a lunch which was provided by the fair members of the party. As the time for departure drew near the picnickers reluctantly prepared for the return journey down the mountainside, and being reminded of dusty streets, more recitations, more collateral reading, approaching examinations, and other common tasks, very heartily thanked kind host and hostess. They began the descent from the mountain top to the valley with similar feelings and memories as others had when they, too, turned their backs on " God ' s Holy Mount, " and turdged down to common place life. A. B. Butters. Nineteen hundred twenty is a significant date. El Rodeo brings mutual greetings to the colleges of the University group at the " Round Up " of the last academic year of the second decade of the new- century. " Maclay, " reflecting a moment at this viewpoint, asks, " What have we done? " Six good men and true are this year to receive, inscribed on enduring parchment. our declaration that they have " satisfactorily completed " those courses of study that bring to the broad base of a liberal education the pursuit of the thoughts that put emphasis on obligation, and tend to qualify for all that is best in life and all that is highest in altruistic service. We send them out with the hope and confidence that the visions of Com- mencement Day may find the fullest reality that fidelity insures. With growing confidence in the great future of the University of Southern California, and with the resolve to be every year a more worthy member of its illustrious family, Maclay makes its bow to all the world on this page of El Rodeo. Dean I Ieai.Ey. 288 RRMRCY 289 K,- s i A i M - THE DEANS MESSAGE We arc living in an age when there is need of increased unity and stability in the pharmaceutical profession. The pharmacist should acquire a new viewpoint of his possibilities. His ideal should be professional attainments. The pharmacy has been the laboratory for the physician ' s prescriptions. May it not also function in the future as the local chemical, bacteriological, sanitary and industrial laboratory. Laird J. Stabler. . ' ;(! FOREWORD When we, as members of the class of l l »20. entered the College of Pharmacy, l ! . S. C, our country was at war, our enrollment very definitely showing the urgent need for manhood. Today mighty industrial problems of peace present themselves calling for initiative in action and thought. To the college men and women comprehension of this situation will mean a great deal to them, and hetter still, to others. The world is arriving rapidly to the place where most of its industrial respon- sibilities are being shifted to the college-trained man and woman. The question is, can we meet them? It is a wide venture but we will do our best. For, after all, is not the greatest thing learned at college, the fact that it is not the achievements attained, hut the desire to accomplish them, that is worth while? 291 THE FACULTY George FinlEy Bovard, A.M., D.D., IX.

Assistant Professor of Practical Pharmacy :- i92 SIDELIGHTS ON THE FACULTY President Bovard — He is our star to which we hitch our wagon. A man held in high esteem by all who know him. I , a i k 1 1 |. Stabler — At first his mighty voice of reprimand scares a new Junior, but by the time we have become Seniors we have learned that the laugh of goodfellowship always follows after. A. B. UlREY — We are kept in a state of suspense for fear that the " droplet method " of infection will spirit him away. Arthur R. Maas — When he is not using his gray matter he is using his gray clubs, at the game the Scotchmen knock the " L " out of. Joh.n H. BlumburG — Does he wash his new Stutz with his own invention, " Rain Water Crystals ' " ? Lewis E. Gilsox — What would have happened to us Seniors if Gilson hadn ' t liked cake and Nolan ' s jokes? E. A. Henderson — lie is " our pharmacist " and we guess he thinks that his store is ours, by the way we stav over there. 293 THE STUDENT BODY When the austere Seniors glared across the aisle at the new little Juniors — well, that was our first student body meeting. With the aid of Senior brains and Junior numbers ( sixty of ' em ) we elected the following officers for the year: President D. ( )bERGFeX Vice-President M. McCaffrey Secretary and Treasurer C. MoRFORD The annual Catalina trip came off in January and was the best the college has ever had. It was returned by the Seniors in the form of a dance at the lamut Club. Traditions laid its iron hand on the disobedient Juniors this year, and future lower classmen are warned that humble acknowledgment of the superiority of a Senior is the best for one ' s delicate health. The usual " tubbing " given all those not wearing their green and red caps was carried on with force in the past year, so take heed. And as a matter of record, no Junior is supposed to wear the skull and crossbones insignia of the Senior. Disregard of this means something un- pleasant for the party in question. The student body is planning another outing before the close ol school, a sort of lumni reunion. 294 295 PHARMACY SENIORS When the graduates of the glorious pharmacy class of 1920 go out into the hard, cruel world they will take with them, in addition to their wonderful brains, the memories of many good times. Years ago, when they were freshmen, their knees shook uncontrollably the first time they were called on in Maas ' quiz, and they trembled with fear when Stabler called them down for using tap water in " quantitative analysis. " Their one an 1 only desire in those days was to be seniors and run the college as they did. Now that they are seniors they see that the university will probably get along without them, but still to themselves they are very great. Schlotte would classify this as the infectious disease ' Swell head. " It ' s a great life to be a senior. Everyone thinks they have brains even if they haven ' t, and a good bluffer can always get by. Scholarship in the class of 1920 has confined itself to a few who believe that " Always get your lesson and the Prof, won ' t call on you. " Th crest of the class. which is greatlv in the majority, believes in the adage: " Never neglect your college for your studies. " In athletics the seniors as a whole were outclassed by the juniors, but they had two individual stars. Miss Helen Shallcross made the record baseball throw for women in the women ' s track meet of the University, and Roy " Swede " Evans was right tackle on the Trojan eleven, and one of the brightest stars of the track team, lie was elected captain of the football season of 1920. The class showed enthusiasm for spirts, and the juniors were unable to outdo them in pep, at least.

That there was a live elass spirit in the ranks of the junior pharmics is evi- denced by the comment (if Professor Maas, who said that " This junior class is a peppy class — in fact, the peppiest class this school has ever known. " Early in the year the following officers were elected: President. ' Michael McCaffery Vice-President Ei mi Joseph Secretary and Treasurer Mrs. Lola Johns_ In athletics, the class covered itself with glory by defeating the Seniors in two out of three games of baseball and thereby winning die Maas baseball trophy. The Seniors underwent an even more humiliating experience when the Juniors painted their numerals on the Lab. walls of the Seniors. Despite the loud howl raided, the numerals still decorate the walls. However, the Juniors did not escape subjection to some humiliation them- selves; for, when they failed to wear their green caps on the campus, the strong arm of tradition reached out and plucked the offenders for a duck in the ' tub. " But rivalry between classes did not enter into all the activities. .Many social gatherings enlivened the year. Warming the heart of every pharmacist who ever went to the college, the annual trip to Catalina was voted a great success. Early in the vear the girls entertained the hoys at Venice. Soon after, the Seniors enter tained at the Gamut Club. ( )ne of the most enjoyable events was an evening spent ,,i the Pharmacists ' Association meeting, where was gained an insight into what the profession of pharmacy held for its future luminaries. Soon after the mid- Near exams, a class entertainment was given at the Fraternal Brotherhood Hall. Xow, at the close of the year, the Juniors are looking forward to the coming year, and expect it to he an even more interesting and enjoyable one. ,?i ' (i JUNIOR RECORDS 1919-1920 EuLALIA ARMENDARIZ J essiE D.

Professor Maas, the best champion of athletics in our college, gave a bronzed trophy cup which will add perpetual youth to the game- in future years. This gave us something definite to tight for, and fight we did. The first game of the series was a walk-away for the Seniors, hut in the suc- ceeding games, especially the last, a " jinx " began to work on them. For one thing. Miller didn ' t chew his " Lucky Plug, " and that meant he couldn ' t catch. " Swede " Evans, the backbone of the team, sprained his ankle, and Charles Vernon kept him company for the same reason. The Junior pitcher, Effinger. was a wizard at curves and the Seniors hadn ' t a chance when he was in the box. Their teamwork was good and in the end they rolled up a score of 15-3. THE 1920 LINEUP Pitchers — Barber, Evans (Seniors); Effinger (Junior). Catchers — Miller ( Senior ) ; ( (bergfel, I lill i Juniors).

This new era of medicine began about 1885, and as the natural sequence, the better medical schools of the country, feeling the pulse of the new movement, responded with such rigid educational requirements that medicine took a new impetus, never before seen. So, too. the Medical School of the University of Southern California raised 11- entrance requirements to one year college work, put men of international repu- tation into chairs of its various departments, spent every effort, and emptied every coffer in a successful attempt to give to medicine that which was her due. Skipping the years when the .Medical School grew ami flourished as only fertile soil and careful nursing wi uld allow, we come to the Fall of 1916, when the government of the school, realiziig the success of increased matriculation requirements, made its requisite that the student entering must have two years of college work. Four years ago it seemed unjust, this extra burden, hut upon looking hack, the results of this expedient stand out as clearly as they must have in the eyes of those far-seeing men who promulgated the rule. A word about the present status of the institution ii the eyes of the medical profession of America: From one end of our great continent to the other, the name of our Medical School has reached the tiniest hamlet and the greatest metropolis alike. Names of men who are veritable princes in their profession appear on the rostrum of the faculty, r.ames to conjure with, fitting proof of the success that has been ours. These men working for years, giving their every moment and the fruits of their master minds, have evolved such a scheme of teaching as only deep thought and complete co-operation could accomplish. Thoroughness has been their by-word, and to make this a surety, the school has insiste 1 i n an abun lance of instructors with a limited number of students. To give the reader a better conception of this idea, during I ' d ' there were one hun- dred and three professors, associates and instructors, while the student role showed a maximum of one hundred and fifteen. The faculty, ever alert to make the Medical School a unit of which the Uni- versity might well lie proud, has by dint of constant effort connected the school with the Los Angeles County Hospital, the secon 1 largest institution of its kind in America, ddiis fact alone, not to mention the University Clinic, with its many modern and unique improvements, makes for a medical school in our own Sunny California that will live and prosper for all time. 316 .117 AN APPRECIATION The students of the College of Physi- cians and Surgeons of the University of Southern California feel that in Dr. William B. Kern they have a teacher whose loftiest aim is the efficiency and suc- cess of his students; a friend with whom they can wisely consel, and a four-square man whom they can respect and love. 318 Adams.

Alpha Sigma Chapter is but seven years old, a husky youngster, however, and of unexcelled parentage. The Fraternity is strictly a medical one, its membership being limited to medical students and members of the profession. It was founded for the express purpose of assisting young men in their way through the years of medical study, holding out before them the highest of professional ideals, and establishing a bond between students and the men who have already graduate 1 and are out " on their own. " The Fraternity also gives the opportunity for closer friendships and comradship that is ordinarily possible in a student body at large. Alpha Kappa Kappa ' s activities do not stop at its own threshold. It extends the welcome hand to the unattached young man. works fraternally with other frater- nities, and counts only that good which will in the end redound to the good oi the whole school.

As the story goes, a bell-boy answering a call one day, opened a door and discovered a lady dressing. He withdrew quickly, closed the door and said: " Excuse me, SIR. " ' The " Excuse me " was politeness and the " Sir " was tact. Miss Stevens (who, by the way, is a little English), repeating the story to another student, got to the point where the boy withdrew quickly and closed the door, but her version of it was that he closed the door and said: " ( h, Boy.

During a recent smallpox epidemic in one of our Southern cities, a Senior Medical student, who had a reputation for dignified bearing and professional appearance, was sent to do some vaccinating among the colored population. The first place he called he was met by an old colored mammy. I fe explained his mission with all the dignity at his command. She looked him over, laughed, and said: " Go-wan. kid, you ain ' t no doctor. " 336 337 338 FOREWORD The Stare Decisis, on behalf of the student body, extends to the faculty its hearty thanks for their conscientious effort in directing the course of study throughout the three years of our curriculum. It is with regret that because of circum- stances beyond our control this edition has been curtailed and contracted near to the van- ishing point. Many good features planned with all the joy in anticipation of presenting something new and interesting have been elim- inated. We have been unable to present in detail the activities of the College of Law, not because of a lack of energy on the part of the staff, but because our allotment of space was much too small to adequately meet the require- ments of our publication. The collection of photographs of our fellow students will be a source of pleasure in the years to come, when the busy world chronicles the success of one and another, and with our memory of them strengthened by this album, we shall acclaim them as our former class- mates. 339 Hon.

As the class of 1898 saw its members lay aside their books in answer to the call tn arms, and go forth to do battle with Spain, so we have seen the members of this class heed the same call in order that Democracy might live! And now the time has come when we must hid our Alma Mater good-bye and go out into the world which has been so appropriately called the " Great I niversity of Life, " remembering always the friendships, associations anil traditions that we have formed and learned here, with the sincere hope that we will have the strength and the power to achieve the success and lead the guided us during our three years of life in this col live. lives that those who have would have us reach, and 350 SENIOR CLASS OFFICERS Earl E.

M rgarET Dickinson Yale, LL.M. 359 IDEALS OF THE PROFESSION 1 have been invited to say a word about some of the principles generally regarded as essentials in the code of the lawyer who would he a success in the truest sense of the word. Realizing that it will lie difficult, if not impossible, to avoid repeating what has already been said many times by leaders in the legal profession during the generations that have passed. I shall simply describe " my lawyer " — an idealistic person embodying some of the characteristics I have come most to admire in the man of law. 1 shall hope thus, perhaps, to escape being charged with • ' preaching, " ami rather to submit a type for the consideration of those about to enter the practice. My lawyer is an honest man. lie is honest not merely because he knows that honesty in a man of any calling is the surest and most enduring lodestone for business, nor merely because of the keen satisfaction he feels in the con- sciousness of being honest and satisfying the requirements of his ethical stand- ards, but he is honest also because, as a lawyer, he is peculiarly concerned with the administration of justice in the affairs of men, and he knows that between Dishonesty and Justice there is an eternal gulf which makes it forever impossible for the two to be united. As a disciple of Justice, he has a noble and important charge to keep in advancing her cause, and can have nothing to do with Dishonesty. And he is honest when to be so he must refuse opportunities that promise gain. But he never parades his honesty nor cheapens it by using it as an advertisement for business. My lawyer is not dismayed by the prospect of a career of hard work. He realizes that his value to his clients is to a large extent dependent upon his famil- iarity with law and the methods of its application. He knows that so long as he assumes the responsibility of protecting the lives, the freedom, or the property of his clients wdio have put their trust in him. he must be a student of their rights as defined in the law. He learns and respects the old saying, " the Law is a jealous mistress. " and if he would continue to accept the trust of clients he must ever be busy about that trust. And while be feels seriously the respon- sibility that is placed upon him as a counsellor, he does not allow himself to he overcome by it. hut keeps his poise through a reasonable amount of play and thus keeps himself fit to do his work. My lawyer knows that if lie is learned in the law on the problem concerning which he has been asked to advise, and has advised intelligently, be has been of value t his employer and he should set a price upon his services that is commensurate with the value he has given. While remembering that the lawyer is worthy of his hire, he will not price his services at an unfairly high figure, nor will he cheapen himself and his profession by making inadequate charges. My lawver will always seek and love intellectual freedom. Though recog- nizing the opinions and decisions of the courts as precedent and respecting the pronouncements of judges learned in the law. he will never allow himself to he hound by an illogical conclusion nor accept as final a course of reasoning that does not satisfy the highest requirements of his own sense of justice and truth, but will ever seek to establish clear reasoning and right decision, though precedent not built upon these foundations rise before him in disheartening proportions. 360 My lawver will, when circumstances require, fearlessly undertake the defense of him who is accused of crime, lie will be conscious that he is a member of a government founded upon ideals of democracy and endorsing the theory that a man is to be considered innocent until he is proved guilty. He knows that it is an ease and. unfortunately, a not uncommon thing for an innocent man to be accused, and that our democracy and our theory of justice will become but mockeries if the accused is to be denied die aid of counsel in presenting any and all meritorious defenses that be may have. And the greater the public clamor for conviction in such a case, and the greater the heinousness of the crime charged, the more serious becomes the duty of the lawyer to see to it that the court be furnished with all the facts and the whole truth, to the end that sane justice may prevail. In his dealings with the other members of his profession, my lawyer will retain an abiding faith in the beauty and the practicality of the " golden rule, " and he will not lose faith in his brethren because an occasional individual among them may seize upon a courtesy extended and basely use it to gain an advantage over him who believes in that ' rule. " On the other hand, he will be quick to denounce any violation of the ethics of the profession and will be ready to do his part toward securing the disbarment of any lawyer who has proved himself unfit for the privilege of practice. He will not lose faith in the courts because of an occasional miscarriage of justice, but will admit the humanness of judges and all others charged with the administration and execution of the law, and will endeavor to work with them to build additional safeguards against the fallibilities of human nature. And, finally, my lawyer is always courteous, alike to his clients and to his brother attorneys. He will listen considerately to learn of anybody wdio may have something ' worth while to teach, and will recognize merit and value wherever be may find them. Ever conscious of the dignity of his position as an officer of the court, he will also remember that be is the employee of his client, trusted with his client ' s confidence, and will endeavor to eliminate arrogance from his relations with his employers. At all times be will seek so to conduct himself as to give no occasion to the layman to speak in disparagement of the lawyer or the lawyer ' s professii n. And now does " my lawyer " seem an impossibly " good " individual, or a type too difficult of emulation? I hope you will like him, for if you do I shall surely like you. Lawrence L.

Probably the " largest and most successful affairs in the annals of the college was held at the Hotel Maryland on November the 22nd. Voltaire Perkins, President of the Student Body, acted in the capacity of toastmaster, while judge Robert M. Clark delivered the principal speech of the evening. His comprehensive address on the League of Nations was of the utmost interest to all those present. Although President Frank Lockett of the Freshman class undoubtedly deliv- ered one of the greatest addresses made by a Freshman president, the tumultuous din of continued applause during hi- entire speech, prevented his rapturous audience from partaking of its significance. An informal dance followed the banquet, the latest dance numbers being played by the Maryland orchestra. This terminated the delightful evening, which all joined in declaring a huge success. THE DEAN ' S TREAT An event of 1920, attended by all students of the college and many friends, was the Dean ' s treat. Vaudeville skits were furnished by the talented students of the various classes, after which the principal event of the evening, namely, the " eats, " were indulged in. The menu, served by the notorious personages, Air. Tapp ' aan and -Mr. Van Etten, consisted of liberal rations of buns, wienies, coffee and doughnuts. The belated arrivals may have seen valiant, merry-making barristers strug- gling with the hot sausages throughout the third, fourth and fifth floors of the Tajo Building, and it may be said to the everlasting glory of the victors, that said hot dogs were conquered in said struggle long before the evening had progressed to any noticeable extent. THE WATER RIGHTS TRIP Judge Gavin W. Craig ' s course in Water Rights includes a visual inspection of tlie actual settings of many great water rights questions at law. The Judge takes a personal interest in having his students understand thoroughly the intricate law of water rights in California, which is most effectively aided by a practical demonstration.

Hughes Class President Nineteen-twenty finds the Junior class a melting pot containing men and women who were Freshmen last year and men who were Freshmen prior to April nineteen-seventeen. RESULT— the old Junior room gets mighty hot at times, in spite of " Pat ' s " dignity, " Van ' s " placidity, " Tap ' s " acidity or a call for " more facts and mure law. " None of us has gained any undue prominence, but at that most of us can make a pretty goo 1 recitation with our books open, excepting, of course, Lawrence Overell, " the human dictaphone. " When Wayne Early Jordan, " oil magnate " Young and John Dockweiler, the man who showed us something in overalls, hegin to recite out of their turn, it sounds like the Chicago Grain Pit on a " BULL " morning, until Shapiro ' s " ques- tion " harks from the Examiner ' s depths or Battle ' s basso is heard from the " family circle. " Even this is better than a pertinent dissertation from II. A. Waldo or I,. A. Mitchell. ( )ur brightest student — " Hirsute " Keithley — sits between Hazel ami Lucile and behind Carick and Jeannette. Noisiest woman — .Mrs. Bettin. Least noisy man — " Doug " Van Dyke. " I ' .arny " Barnett has his eve on all remunerative political offices, but Gene Blalock is Sharp and may show him that Redwine is mocking and Richards may Haight to Enter and split up their gerrymandering. Our President — Cliff Hughes — fears to call a class meeting lest he be called upon to carry a resolution to a tardy prof. There never has been any money in the treasury — that ' s why Younkin has so many friends. I ' .est known Hunker — " Dad " Carl. Brightest boy — Lloyd Atkinson. I ' .iggest bluffer — Jimmie King — always good for a ride. Prettiest girl — Now sit clown Phil, we are not mentioning any names. lwavs absent — Peggy Halloram. Handsome Harry — Eddie l!eal. Favorite avocation — Announcing s C s .inns of " Lil ' e Joe " for President Club. Second best — " Giving way to the right " to make room for " Tub " Silberberg and waken " Hap " Moore.

Lockett Class President The class of ' 22, although not as large as some of the Freshman classes of ante-bellum years, is to be measured by its deeds, personnel, and its splendid spirit as manifested in student activities. As the first class to enter the College of Law since the signing of the armistice, we boast of more ex-service men than any class in the College. The class was well represented in all Freshman teams, and next year when such men as Fddie Leahy, Harvey Howe, E. Fgan and many others become eligible for varsity athletics, they will certainly bring honor to their class and prove themselves a great asset to the teams ami to the University. Ye were represented this year on the gridiron by James Smith and Andrew Toolen, who played stellar games for the varsity on the right and left end of the line, respectively. In social activities, the Fresh men have certainly done credit to themselves. Upon being served with summons, it became their duty and pleasure to appear " en masse " at the Freshman banquet held at the Maryland Hotel in Pasadena, and all were unanimous in declaring the occasion a huge success. Freshmen were also much in evidence at the Greater University Banquet given at the Alexandria, to say nothing of them at the Lex Club party at the Annandale. We enjoyed the friendships and associations we have formed, and we of the Freshman class have resolved to come back next fall with twice the spirit and enthusiasm of this year and make the College of Law a larger and better institu- tion than ever before, and by so doing bring to ourselves as the class of ' 22 a greater satisfaction. ?; FRESHMAN CLASS « (FFICERS Prank P.

Perkins President of Student Body Vs we are called upon to prepare the pages of the Stare Decisis we are reminded of the fact that our school year is about to close, and we cannot help but look back over the past eight or nine months which we have spent in our institution and recall either events of joy or sorrow. If we have secured any joy from our associations in school it is because we have put our interest in it. and if we have been dissatisfied it is because we have neglected to take that interest which in itself yields pleasure. Our past school year has been marked with a renewal of student body activity similar to that of ' pre-war days, and our motto ha- been " Back to the days before the war. " and its accomplishment has been made possible by the hearty co-operation of the members of the student body, without which little can be done. It was this fine spirit of loyalty to our institution and to the student body officers which made possible " The informal Puncheon. " " The Freshman Banquet, " and " The Dean ' s Treat. " Therefore who can say that the student body at the College of Law does not possess the greatest school ' spirit of any of the colleges? It has again been dem- onstrated that busy as are most of our students, that the courage and ambition which impels them ' to the study of law is also reflected in every undertaking they attempt and there is put into it the same degree of energy and enthusiasm which makes for a real " honest-to-goodness, " " up-an ' -at- ' em " student life. We returned to school in the Pall of 1919, determined that the College of Law would again resume its " place in the sun " after the necessities of war had almost depleted its student body. Whatever success has been attained in this respect is only testimony of a small part of what will be accomplished by each future year of growth and development, until the College of Law of I. S. C. through its active student body, alumni and faculty will again hold the place of esteem throughout the United States that it did prior to 1917. And as the term draws to a close it brings with it a feeling of mingled joy and sadness for it has been more a pleasure than a task to act as the President of a co-operative and willing student body which will soon lie called from labor to refreshment only to resume its work again in the coming Fall. 380 ■«► STUDENT BODY OFFICERS Dorothea Misw, Vice-President Voltaire I .

The members of the class are to be commended for the interest and enthusiasm which has characterized their work. Debate Manager Blalock is arranging debates with the Branch of the Uni- versity of California and Occidental College. The College of Law will be ably represented in these forensic contests by men chosen from the Squad Class. We will uphold the negative of the question: Resolved: That there should be com- pulsorv arbitration of all labor disputes affecting the public welfare. Negotiations are now under way and partly concluded for an extensive Eastern debating tour in which the College of Law will debate the larger univer- sities and colleges of the Middle West and Atlantic coast during the coming year.

The contractor admitted that the window was defective. " But how could 1 do better, " he said " when the brickwork was out of plumb? " " To be sure. " said the judge, and he sent for the brick layer. Pat couldn ' t deny that the coping was crooked, lie explained that while he was placing it in position his attention was distracted from his work by a pretty girl, with blue silk stockings and short skirt, who passed on the other side of the street. . " Then you are blameless, " said the judge and the girl was sent for. " I admit " said she. " that I am pretty, hut that ' s not my fault, and if my dress and blue stockings attracted Pat ' s attention, the salesman, not I, is responsible.
