USC Guest
Is Opposed
The University of South Cali-
fornia's commencement ceremon-
ies were boycotted by members of
the student body -recently.
According to the President of
USC student government, William
Van Aestyne, reaso- for the boy-.
cott was disgust over the adminis-
tration choice of commencement
speaker: Gov. Allan Shivers of
Texas.
Disappointment over the choice
of Gov. Shivers as guest speaker,
and accompanying receipt of the
customary honorary degree, was
expressed unanimously by the sen-
ate group of the student body.
Senate members voiced their dis-
approval of Gov. Shivers' planned
appearance on the USC campus
because, they said, the Texan has
been a harsh-spoken opponent of
desegregation.
One hundred thirty-six faculty
members joined the opposition,
and signed a petition backing the
students' request for a repeal of
the invitation to Gov. Shivers. The
administration ignored both ap-
peals.
Gov. Shivers appeared at the
commencement, faced by a group
of students picketing the com-
mencement site. No violence oc-
curred.

America's Lag
Recently returned from a meet-
ing of the French Physical Chem-
ical Society, he attributed the lag
to America's head start in the nu-
clear reactor field.
A promising peacetime use of
atomic energy was reported by
U' Fresh Air
Camp Headed
By Win. Morse
Unique in the country, the Uni-
versity's Fresh Air Camp stimu-
lates an interest in the problems of
individual and group behavior.
Founded thirty-five years ago,
the Fresh Air Camp was originally
designed to give underprivileged
boys an opportunity to spend a,
vacation in the country. Since
then, however, the camping pro-
gram has widened its scope. Con-
tent not only with providing a new
environment, 'the camp has also
recognized its therapeutic poten-
tial-understanding and helping
the disturbed child in his adjust-
ment.
Morse Talks
Briefly outlining the camping
program, Prof. William C. Morse
o fthe education school, director of
the camp, explained that the camp
is equally important to the stu-
dent.
For those preparing for careers
in education, psychology, social
work and sociology, the camp pro-
vides practical training in dealing
with childhood maladjustment.
Prof. Morse pointed out that the
camp operates for nine weeks dur-
ing the University summer session.
In that time, students can earn
eight hours credit in education,
psychology, social work or sociol-
'ogy.
During the summer, students
serve as camp counselors and at-
tend the training seminars. Board,
room and tuition are provided by
the camp.
Emphasizing the practical value
of the camp, Morse commented
that "it activates an appreciation
of the .society we live in." He
pointed out that most people seem
to connect the camp only with
"Tag Day" and are unaware of
its actual functioning.
