Major Changes in Next
Year's J-Hop Expected

PLATTER SPINNER-Adele Hager, '51, releases the turntable
to start a tune on her afternoon record-request program. When
a song gets too bad, the well known ballad singer will break out
her guitar and take over.

... with Harry Reed

The consensus of the central
committee seems to be that next
year's J-Hop will differ greatly
from the recent dance.
But until a new committee is
elected and enrollment figures are
in for next semester, the question
of whether there will even be a
J-Hop cannot be answered.

man, approximately 2,000 tickets
were sold this year, a number
somewhat below the original esti-
"But," he said, "there is every
indication that the dance will
not suffer a deficit."
Panelis 'To
Bie Aired
A weekly series of programs, de-
signed to give students a chance
to air their opinions on problems
of current interest will be inau-
gurated at 9 p.m. Monday by WU-
OM, University FM Station.
Monday night's program will
take up the problem of "What
Kind of Military Service Law
Should We Have?" Taking part in
the discussion will be Tom Mur-
ray, '53; Russell Church, '52;
James Eatmon; Al Grybus; Carlos
Ellson and Mary Wilson.
ON MARCH 12TH, another
group of students will discuss,
"Should We Nationalize Our
Public Utilities?"
Students from the. University
and the University of Califor-
nia will argue the merits of the
welfare state on March 19th.
Because of Monday night's bas-
ketball game, "Student Opinion"
will be broadcast at 9 p.m. but
subsequent broadcasts will be
aired at 7:30 p.m.
The series will be given under
the supervision of Prof. N. Edd
Miller of the speech department.

Complete figures will not be
known until March 12, at which
time Hamer will make a report to
the Student Affairs Committee.
in ticket sales to a new low in en-
rollment this semester. Walter B.
Rea, associate dean of students, on
the other hand, said that the trend
is away from big dances. He point-
ed out that many campus dances,
large affairs in the past, have had
small ticket sales recently.
"If the draft continues as it
has been," J-Hop Chairman Don
Downie, '52, said, "there won't
be enough men here to put on
the dance. But we are specu-
lating on a possible relaxation in
The new SL motion to have J-
Hop elections in the spring, if
passed, would mean that the new
J-Hop committee could have plen-
ty of time to look for bands.
"A little money would be spent,
but if enrollment figures in Sep-
tember are such that a J-Hop can
not be held, nothing much will be
lost," Downie said.
Final decision will rest with the
next committee, but the present
members will suggest a number of
ways to the new committee on
how to cut expenditures.
Largest item will be the question
of bands. Having only one name
band has been one proposal. It
would play only one night, or per-
haps at a formal dance Friday
and an informal dance Saturday..

World's Largest Collection

Antioch Film
To Be Shown
By Henderson
"Campus Frontiers," a movie
depicting the program at Antioch
College, will be presented at 10
a.m. today in Rm. 4009, University
High School.
The film, sponsored by Prof.
Algo D. Henderson of the educa-
tion school and former president
of Antioch, was designed specifi-
cally to be shown to a seminar in
higher education. However, all in-
terested visitors are welcome.
The movie will show Antioch
students at work on various jobs
throughout the eastern United
States. The film shows the inter-
relationship between their occu-
pations and classroom studies.
The participation of both students
and faculty in student government
will also be illustrated.
According to Prof. Henderson,
the color movie was produced and
filmed by Antioch students during
the period from 1936 to 1947,
when he was president of the col-
Law School Slates
Advocacy Institute
The Second Institute on Advo-
cacy, designed as a refresher
course for lawyers, will be spon-
sored by the aw School March 16
and 17t.
Prof. Charles W. Joiner, insti-
tute chairman, revealed that the
program will deal with prepara-
tion and proof for law cases. The
two day meet will include lectures
and panel, discussions by authori-

at the Union by various manufac-
turing concerns.
VALUED AT $50,000 the locks
range in size from a square inch
to several square feet, and from
those of simple design to the or-
A prize in this collection is a
large wooden bar lock from the
west gate of the Holy Sepul-
chre in Jerusalem. It was in-
stalled in 1099 A.D., shortly af-
ter the capture of that city by
the first crusaders.
The oldest lock on display is a
bejeweled one dated 336 B.C.,
which was used by Darius III,
king of Persia at the time of Alex-
ander the Great. This lock was
found in the ruins of his palace
at Abydos.
LOCKS several hundred years
old from Europe and India offer
a contrast in design. Europeans
apparently were in constant fear
of burglars, for their house and
paddlocks run to massive con-
traptions of iron and brass.
The Indian locks on display
look like women's purses, long
and narrow with a handle run-
ning the entire length of the
barrel, like a strap. Shiny and
made of brass, some have fancy
superfluous attachments.
Another phase of the collection
is devoted to the fore-runners of
the modern combination lock.
These locks have revolving bar-
rels on a single cylinder, and use
letters from the alphabet with
various symbols instead of Ara-
bic numerals,.
The most intricate of. the small-
er locks are marked "origin un-
known." Wrought in the shape of
animals, they were used as pad-

was Dean Mortimer Cooley of the
College of Engineering.
The First World War hit cam-
pus in a period of anti-war de-
bate. Feeling was high for
"pacifism", but the supporters
of immediate military training
were equally vociferous. Prof.
W. H. Hobbs, now a professor
emeritus, organized a Security
League to push for compulsory
military training, and held a
mass meeting in Hill Auditor-
ium in March, 1917.
The Daily reported that "there
could be no doubt of the earnest-
ness that lay behind" the yells
and cheers when Hobbs offered a
resolution calling for compulsory
military training. The students
knew they were to be involved,
and prepared for it. As during
the Civil War, drill companies
sprang up, students left for serv-
ice, and the new ROTC units
(soon to become SATC, Students
Army Training Corps) invaded
the campus.
The students' part in the Sev-
ond World War is still too fresh
in most minds to bear repeating.
Their feeling in 1941, was per-

day: curiosity, tempered by un-
