Extend Totem
Pics Deadline
• BECAUSE the many students still desiring Totem
photographs cannot be accommodated by today's official dead - line, Steffens-
Colmer have consented to
come to the campus Wednesday, John Green, Totem Editor, announced today.
Green emphasized that the photographers can take pictures next
week only if lists posted in the
Quad Monday are completely
filled, but said some might possibly be taken Thursday.
Although Steffens-Colmer have
kindly consented to the extension
of time, "many of the 1300 students who have not yet had pictures taken will be disappointed
unless they sign up immediately,"
he said.
Because of the extension of
time, drawing for the free eight
by ten enlargements Is to be held
at the Phrateres Waltz Time
Thursday evening.
Urging all grads to have pictures taken at onec, Green said the
Totem planned a complete graduation section.
Dean Sherman, Totem sales
manager, announces that Totem
subscriptions are to be sold from
the Quad box office during lunch-
hour. To date, the Totem's eighteen salesmen have sold 700 copies
of the UBC year-book.
To stimulate sales, Sherman
said, he planned to appoint salesmen ln each campus club, organization, fraternity and sorority.
Phrateres have already organized
under this system.

night from 9 till 1 a.m. That only
leaves five more days for the men
on the campus to get themslves
Thus it would appear that now
is the time for action. Subtle hints
and such shilly shallying are being put aside by all men who
wish to retain their social pride.
Every man on the campus realizes the necessity of getting a bid
for this important coed affair. If
there was no other reason Don
Williamson's music would be incentive enough.
But on top of this is the challenge  to one's masculine appeal.
The question narrows down to
"Hiis she been going out with mc
because she wanted to or because
she had to'.'" This problem is always perplexing but it a time Uke
this,   it  is downright vital..
Of course those now n the so-
called state of "going steady" can
relax and laugh at the proverbial
lone wolves, some of whom are
feeling very lonely, right now.
There are more women than
men (alas) on the campus which
should make the men's situation
secure. However, the women are
not being hasty in the important
choice of who to take. Consequently, many men aie Deginning
to feel like the little man who
won't be there.
Those gentlemen who have already been invited, having to
have something to worry about,
now wonder if and what their
corsage will be. Needless to sny.
they are all voting for something
colorful,   picturesqo  and   edible.
MacArthur says in all areas on
Leyte are showing signs of complete disorganization and disintegration, Backing up his report is
the casualty toll ef the Japanese—
fourteen thousand four hundred
and Ave enemy soldiers have been
killed. The communique says
practically half the Japanese force
has been wiped out in the .campaign to date.
The ground victory has been
achieved with a remarkably low
cost to the American invaders.
Only 518 Yanks have been killed,
with 139 missing and 1503 wounded.
That's a total of but two thousand
one hundred and sixty. The ratio
of enemy dead to American is
more than 29 to 1!
On Leyte, the Americans have
extended their control of the East
Coast to at least 54 miles. Seventh
Division troops now are moving
south in pursuit of the enemy.
At the same time, it's revealed
that Allied fighter planes now are
operating from captured airdromes
on Leyte.
Meanwhile, dismounted cavalrymen on nearby Samar, to the
ncrth, have seized Catbalogan, the
capital of Samar province, as well
as: the important town of Santa
Rita on the main West Coast highway. In all, the Yanks have pushed nine miles farther south of
Catbalogan to place practically the
entire Isbnd under Allied domination. General MacArthur says
civil government on Samar will be
organized shortly.
Speaking Courses 'Necessary'
•   PUBLIC SPEAKING courses are just as nnecessary as the writing of English paragraphs by freshmen, said Professor F. G. C. Wood, department of English, in addressing
the Parliamentary Forum Thursday.
Faults   in   public   speaking,   he
said, were due to nervousness and
lack of emphasis.
Discussing the recent Mock Parliament, Prof. Wood congratulated the students on a "very successful undertaking."
He congratulated its member for
the thoughtful preparation of their
"hearty deliberations." He commended those who exhibited a
touch of humour, and felt that
"very serious, solemn, sententious
debates" were not In keeping with
the "borderline frivolity" of a
Mock Parliament.
In a review of public speaking
technique, he outlined eight guides
to good speaking:
1. Correct posture gives one a
"firm foundation" and strengthens one's morale. Stand with the
left foot 3 to 6 inches ahead of the
right so that a line may be drawn
which will pass from the toe to
the heel of the left to the heel of
the right,
2. Disconnected utterances are
thc definite signs of Inexperience.
He did not expect a university student to have thc same polish as a
professional platform speaker, "but
we do expect you so to phrase
your material so th§t It breaks Into
the logical parts of the sentence."
3. Emphasis on the right word.
4. If none of the ideas are particularly stressed, people will soon
be lulled to sleep. "There must be
something in each of your mental paragraphs that you want to
stand out," said the professor.
5. Lack of variation in sentence construction breeds inattention. "There is such a thing as
variety" and the rhetorical question.
A little more practice in parallel will net profitable results.
It is a good way to make an anticlimax of the other side's material.
7. No pause at all is worse
than too long a pause. Occasionally, say a sentence very slowly
for it plays on one's sense of suspense.
A pause now and then "before
the pivotal words" of a sentence
is very effective.
8. Some people have no sense of
gesture. They use the "hand-me-
out" movement which is monotonous.
"It makes one think of the stump
politician and the clergyman who
tells us we are going to hell next
Since nervousness is a trial both
to the speaker and to the audience, Professor Wood advised the
speaker to be sure of the first few
sentences. This will bolster his
morale and "break tht ice."
After this talk, Jim Wilson, vice-
president of the Parliamentary
Forun\ told of a letter received
from John Cowan, Progressive
Conservative vice-president of the
club last year, now in the army.
In it he mentioned that he was
dismayed at learning from a copy
of the "UBYSSEY" of the considerable drop in the number of
Progressive Conservatives in the
Mock   Parliament.
Brian Burke, head of the public
speaking class, has been added
to the executive. The class meets
every Tuesday at 12:30 and every
Friday at 4:30 in the Double Committee Room in the Brock. Personal supervision, criticism, judgment and help will be given by
Mr. Burke to all who attend. Page Two

Fall Congregation
There was something about Fall Congregation this year that gave everybody
present a feeling of pride for their university.
From the opening procession, with its visiting dignitaries in their colorful gowns, to
the final words of the Chancellor at the
Congregation Banquet the graduation ceremonies and installation were probably the
most impressive of all the many functions
of this university.
The ceremonies seemed to give a certain
air to UBC which heretofore has been lacking. The presence of their excellencies, the
ambassadors, the premier and all the other
influential people of the province, and the
granting of honorary degrees, gave this
campus an international and important air
which befits the beginning of a new era of
The addresses of the President and the
Chancellor showed that the administration
of this university is actively engaged in plans
for the building of UBC. Students, alumni
and faculty wish them all the success possible as they begin a difficult task. The words
of Premier Hart at the Congregation Banquet, however, have a hint that the provincial government is ready, willing and
able to expand the facilities of this university.
The battle of wits which took place between the Premier, the Mayor, the President
and the Chancellor-in regard to the financing
of this expansion reminded us of the sly
cracks which students make in the direction
of AMS Treasurer Ken Creighton. With
sly humor, the President and Chancellor
intimated that they knew who signed the
checks in this province, and the Premier
responded subtlely that he knew fully well
also. The Mayor put the pressure on the
Premier for us, too.
Dr. MacKenzie probably earned a nickname for himself at the banquet. He was
referred to frequently as the "shadow" after
the Premier made a remark about him being
a "great shadow that has fallen across the
university," whose influence UBC will soon
feel. We like this term because so far we
have liked the effect of that shadow.
Congregation Day was a success from
beginning to end, which we think heralds a
new note in the history of this university.
The Ubyssey owes an apology to the Congregation Committee and to the man who
was most responsible for such a memorable
day. Our editors were under the impression
that Dr. 0. J. Todd was in charge of all arrangements. We learned the day after Congregation that it is Dean Daniel Buchanan
who deserves the thanks of the university.
Dean Buchanan was appointed by the senate
to handle the arrangements for the ceremonies, and we think he did a very fine
job. We offer our apologies to Dr. Todd and
Dean Buchanan for the misrepresentation.
• one artsman to another   • • * Don Stainaby
• IT HAS BEEN said that the Arts faculty
is dead, defunct, and generally out of the
running. It has been said that it was a good
thing that the Arts executives were abolished. All this has been said by Aggies,
Sciencemen, and Commercemen. It has been
said that the Arts faculty still has lots of
spirit. It has been said that the Arts faculty
hasn't had a good deal, that it has been
given the run around. All this has been said
by Artsmen.
Since I am an Artsman, (and proud of
it), I am taking my pen in hand to write
the rebuttal to end all rebuttals in this
Exhibit A. The Frosh elections. Never
was there a more rowdy nor more interested
crowd present at an election. These men,
the new blood of the university, all of them
Artsmen this year, and a good portion of
them future Artsmen, showed a spirit that
was second to none. After witnessing this,
can it be said that the Arts faculty, though
admittedly weak at present, need necessarily
Exhibit B. The sophomore elections. A
spirited campaign to announce the elections
lasted a mere two hours, and resulted in a
quorum of one hundred and fifty enthusiastic
Artsmen. This response would take some
equalling, even in the supposedly terrific
history of the engineers.
Exhibit C. The Arts-Aggie Ball. I was
at the meeting of the Aggie and Arts representatives discussing this. The fault of it's
falling through was not Arts'. Through lack
of co-operation in other years the Aggies
felt that they were wrong to try again. This
year's Arts group which offered to help with
the Arts-Aggie was a very spirited group—
the founders of the campaign that resulted in
the election of the second year Arts executive. What reason was there for the Aggies
to withdraw in the face of enterprise like .
Exhibit D. The Arts-Aggie Brawl. A
few ambitious and disillusioned Aggies
thought that the Arts faculty was so weak
that they wouldn't contend the possession
of a few common room chairs. Those of you
who know, know that the Aggies are now
standing in their common room clad in
shorts. So much for Arts' spirit.
Exhibit E. The Petitions. Third and
fourth year Artsmen have originated petitions to Council for reinstatement of their
executives, and have been successful in that
Council has promised them their executives
if the petitions are filled. By the way, the
petitions are filling fast.
A concentrated campaign of posters and
chalked signs such as was the prelude to
the sophomore elections would have made
these petitions unnecessary. It cannot be
denied that this method brought the required
and desired results, and it cannot be denied
that no such program was instituted for the
third and fourth y6ar elections.
It is rather discouraging to Artsmen to
see the redshirts and yellowshirts running
around the campus clad in their faculty
sweaters. A congregation of Artsmen is
without any label of honour. No group can
band together unless they have some apparel
that is common to all and rouses their spirit.
Now, as one Artsman to another we
have a lot of grievances. These can all be
patched up and healed over. Right now,
how about learning the Arts yells, and doing
something more than booing when the engineers start "we are, we are."? If you don't
think there are enough Arts yells, write
some new appropriate ones and get Council's
And, as one Artsman to engineers and
Aggies and Commercemen, just hold your
shirts. Look to your laurels, fellows, this
thing is coming to a head, and it isn't Arts
that is crying for mercy. All we want is our
executive, then watch Arts go.

University Graduates
• FORESTRY in British Columbia is a little known profession,
Too few of us realze the diversified fields offered to a scientific
forester. One avenue of approach,
the government forest service, absorbs many of our trained foresters. Here there are two separate
branches, Protection and Economics. Under Protection comes the
management of parks, suppression
of fire and enforcement of fire
The least known and still comparatively young branch of our
forest service is the Economics.
Here trained foresters are required extensively in reforestation
cruising, planting, soil research,
forest surveys, mosaic airplane
mapping, Insect and fungi research
and research in any of the following: slash disposal, growth and
yield plots, seed tree and silvicultural methods. These are but a
few of the assignments carried out
in forestry by university graduates.
Another field in forestry, pri
vate industry, absorbs a great
number of our foresters. In the
logging camps engineers In forestry are needed for mapping, surveying, building cat-roads, truck
roads, bridges, and railways, cruising standing timber and setting
out camp policy.
Still another branch is offered
In our mills where many men are
absorbed in the administration
and sales end. Here log brokers,
superintendents, mill managers
and sales managers, are all helped
greatly by a university forestry
But. the future field, the sustained yield of our forests, will
create a need for forestry graduates which must be fulfilled. Only
trained foresters holding scientific degrees can manage our timber
holdings and insure continued
supplies of timber and timber
products. Some of these products
include rayon, pulp, veneers and
dyes. Recreation and preservation
of fish and game to a specialized
extent wih also be one of the main
attributes of our future forests.
The Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir,
In regard to your article in
the October 24th issue of the Ubyssey concerning the Arts-Aggie
Formal, we, as members of the
Agricultural Undergraduate Society, wish to Inform you that the
reason for the abolishment of the
Arts-Aggie BaU is not a matter

It is entirely due to the lack of

Modern Chinese Artist
Shows Work in Brock
•   MODERN Chinese art painting,, work of simplicity and
beauty, was exhibited on the campus last Thursday by
one of the leading exponents of the modern Chinese school.
Chang   Shu-Chi,   Professor   of       ———_-_____________
Fine Arts at the National Central University at Chungking, China, who is generally accepted as
being the foremost artist of the
school, spoke and demonstrated
his painting style in the Mildred
Brock Room in the Brock.
Mr. Chang started painting as
a small boy in the lonely hill studio of his uncle. After finishing
his education, he taught Fine Arts
in the University where he claims
he acquired much knowledge
from his students. In his extensive travels he also learned a
great deal.
Professor Chang's form of painting is very different from European art. His strokes are quick
and simple, sometimes only three
for an entire figure. The Chinese
script on each work is an essential part of the painting. He often uses as many as five colors
on a single brush, using the me
dia of tempore and water-color.
His keen sense of humor broke
the seriousness of the lecture several times by particularly witty
The professor was accompanied by two of his associates who
at times interpreted his work.
These associates have accompanied him in his travels all through
America and Canada.
While In Washington, D.C., Professor Chang had a lengthy article
written about him in the March
15, 1943 edition of the magazine
'LIFE.' This article was profusely
illustrated with reproductions of
his paintings and photographs of
him while at work. This magazine may be found in the Library.
Professor Chang is having a
one-man exhibit at the Vancouver Art Gallery at present. He
is showing some of the most famous of his works.

It was a whole year's journey for this
little band of Selkirk Settlers — a year of
constant hardships. But these hardy
pioneers were willing to undergo any
hardships   to   reach  a land where their
effort and initiative could earn its reward,
and where they could carve out a happy

That is the heritage they have handed

Varsity Fifteen Tangles
With Vancouver Reps
•   THE ALL-MIGHTY Thunderbirds from UBC meet the
well-balanced Vancouver All-Stars in the yearly Homecoming fracas this afternoon in the University Stadium.
On Thursday night, the 'Birds went through a strenuous
workout under the lights on the soccer field before the
watchful eyes of coach Dan Doswell. At the meeting in the
clubhouse, which preceded the practice, all difficulties were
ironed out for the big game. Although they aren't in top
sMape as yet, they are expected to easily dispose of the ancient
On the other side of this preview picture, there also
happen to be a few bright spots. Namely the experience
of the veterans and the outstanding kicking ability of their
great young fullback, Bill Kinder.
The foregoing adds up to a thrilling contest which should
give the spectators plenty of fast action.
On Wednesday, Varsity's Frosh fifteen smeared St.
George's senior team by a score of 17-0. The Frosh had a
fine turnout of players and if it were not for the fact that
the fellows cannot get off their Saturday parade, Varsity
would be able to enter three full teams in the Vancouver
Rugby Football Union. There are about sixty rugger players
now on the campus.
With only one practice under their belts and not one
game of any kind, the Freshmen conducted themselves extremely well against their much lighter opponents. Jack
Armour scored the first try as the'UBC scrum took the ball
over the goal line. Hec Rossetti and Armour again, scored
quick tries to round out the first half.
St. George's put up a stiffer defence in the second half
but Rossetti plunged across to make the count 12-0.
Doug Knott finished off the scoring for the afternoon
with a smart try with five minutes to go. Scott Kerr converted on the last score.

Inter 'B's* In First Loss
Senior Bees Take First
Game From North Shore
• YOU CAN never tell what's
going to happen in the Inter
'B' hoop circles these days. On
Thursday night the Varsity quintet
went onto the floor with everything but the flash and show they
had in their first games and to
come to the point, lost their game
to McKenzie-Frasers 48-44. The
game was indeed a close one and
a hard one to lose.
In the night cap Varsity's Senior
Bees camt through with a win in
the first game of that loop this
year. North Van was the victim,
37-29 was the score. Jimmy Spencer had 10 points'for the North
Shore squad and Pete McGeer's 8
points was high for the students.
Coasting along on a rather nice
bulge at the half way mark, the
lead gradually began to dwindle
until at the breather, the speedy
Royal City crew had overtaken the
Varsity boys. The main cause of
this sudden reverse was a young
hoopstcr by the name of Jack
Northrup who broke away for ten
points in this quarter. Dick Kennedy was positively torrid, piling
up a neat 20 points for the winners.
Actually this was the finest game
of thc year and it was only through
hard luck that Varsity didn't end
up on top. Bill McLeod worked
hard to And the hoop for 12 points.
Doug Davidson played another nice
game, netting eight points.
In the other Intel1 'B' fixture,
Tookes were toppled by last year's
champion Heather Cubs 34-21.
Leading all the way, the Cubs
actually had little trouble with the
shirtmen who up till that game had
not lost a match. Manning with 12
points and the old reliable Harvey
Cook with eight were the big guns
for the winners. Cam McLeod with
eight points was high for Tookes.
Lost: One black leather zipper
notebook, urgently needed. In rather decrepit condition and of no
use to anyone but owner, Please
return to Victor M. Young or to
the Aggie Common Room.

• HERE ARE the road racers all lined up for Thursday's Cross Country.  That's Harry
Thompson (No. 10) in the second lane, and Ken McPherson, the winner in the fourth
lane. Bud McLeod, who finished fourth is in the centre, and second placer Cam Coady is
on the left of Ron Weber (No. 120). You can pick out the rest of the fellows for yourselves.
They're all in there.
Ken McPherson Captures Cross Country
• KEN McPHERSON, king of the Varsity runners, took his second annual crown in
UBC's Cross Country Meet Thursday as he broke the record of 14:13 with a terrific
mark of 13 minutes, 30.8 seconds.  He completed the regulation course of 2.6 miles at least
30 yards in front of the next man.
Following McPherson was Cam .
Coady who also broke last year's
record with a time of 13 minutes,
48 seconds flat. Behind the first
two were Harry Thompson, Bud
McLeod, Bill Wood, Charlie McKenzie, By Straight, Dave Rea,
Doug Ross, Archie Young, and
Harry Marks.
UBC's director of physical education, M. L. Van VUet, got the 77
runners off to a perfect start. The
boys broke together and stayed
dote for the first tew yards. Then
Harry* Thompson and McPherson
took over the lead as the runners
left the Stadium.
McPherson took the lead just
outside the Stadium and held it
for the rest of the run, winning in
a driving finish with not another
runner in sight.
The first winners, and a few
others, will begin training immediately for the Annual Pacific Cross
Country Meet that is to be held
at Spokane November 26th. Last
year's Spokane meet was taken by
UB'C, the only Canadian entry,
with an all-time low mark of 20
points. The Varsity boys are up
against teams from such colleges
as Stanford, Washington State,
Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and
The only remaining members of
last year's championship team who
will, participate In the 1944 meet
are Ken McPherson, Bud McLeod,
Cam Coady, and Harry Thompson.
In 1943's meet, McPherson placed
second behind an Independent
runner. His time was 21 minutes,
57 seconds.
Last year's intramural winners,
the Kappa Sigmas, took the cross
country title with low score of 83
points. They were closely followed
by the Delta Upsilon fraternity
who grossed 99 points. Last year's
winners of the cross country title,
the Engineers, came third with 104
Points this year were determined
on the basis of 5 men to each fraternity team. The positions of tho
first five men were added up and
the lowest score won.

Intramural Managers are responsible for the organization of teams,
so all loyal bowlers are urged to
sup'port their year and contact
their representatives immediately.
Games wdl commence next week.
Look for further information concerning the meet in the Ubyssey.
•   READY, AIM, FIRE, the sports page is underset again.
Here I am expressing my views of spirit and until the
time comes that every co-ed on the campus fully realizes the
fact that physical education is a major part of university
curriculum I will rave on about the lack of women's spirit
in sports.
On the campus this year we have a more athletic-minded
group of co-eds than I have have seen since I began having
any connection with UBC, yet it could be improved and
improved immensely.
One thousand girls are now registered as undergrads
at the university and only one fifth of those attending this
institute of knowledge accept intramurals as important
enough to forfeit an hour of their time to turn out for the
greatest women's sports activity on the campus today.
Yes, I realize that all you girls put in one hour of compulsory war work physical ed. but the day victory is announced are these 600 co-eds in question going to drop all
physical recreation because it is not compulsory? Perhaps
by V. Day we may have a few improvements and perhaps
our hopes will be realized and we will have a department,
or am I dreaming?
Perhaps we are without necessary equipment to participate in certain sports but have we enough gumption to get
together and fight for some of the equipment we need? If
the support of every woman on this campus was brought
together neither heaven nor earth could refuse our desires.
A Physical Education Department is lacking in this University, yet our Canadian sister universities have departments. UBC is the youngest Canadian University, yet it is
the third largest in enrollment.
Is it due to the lack of spirit of the co-eds that we have
no department? For once I say no, you are not entirely at
fault, but UBC co-eds could help to establish a department
if the support was strong enough.
Well co-eds, you are, in my mind, not as energetic nor
vivacious nor courageous as you should be. To make it
short, you still lack SPIRIT.
Both UBC Squads
Play in Senior A
Contests Tonight
• VARSITY'S Thunderbirds and
Frosh swing into action to open the current season for Senior
'A' basketball as they take on
Lauries Pie-Rates and Higbies respectively in a double-header
"first-nighter" in the UBC gym
to-night. The Freshmen start the
evening off at 7:30 and the Thunderbirds play at 8:30.
It's all part of the Homecoming
program and it looks like it will
be a good night for basketball.
Both contests are fairly evenly
matched according to hoop for-
casters. t
Varsity's Inter 'A' Frosh team
who have been shoved around
from Inter <B' to Senior 'B' and
now to Senior 'A' will be out in
their first performance since their
early game against the sophs.
They have been under the watchful eye of Bruce Yorke for the
past few weeks and are a much
improved team. They will be play,
ing the only other Inter 'A' entry
in the league, Higbies, who they
will play for the Inter 'A' cup.
The 'Birds will be out for a
win too with a real strong team
on tap. Varsity has high hopes
of making this strictly a UBC
year in all hoop circles. Besides
the seven men left from last year's
squad, the three freshmen representatives on the team will be on
hand to put In their two cent's
Lauries on the other hand
don't exactly want the Students
to win. This all adds up to the
fact that four fighting teams will
be on the floor to-night. You'll
be glad you came, Don't forget—
game time is 7:30.
Varsity And UBC
Soccer Teams In
Two Tough Tilts
• VARSITY'S   two   terrific   elevens are playing two crucial
rugger games today. The Varsity
team will tackle the Pro-Rec players at 2:30 on the Upper Field of
the Stadium and the new UBC
team will tangle the Collingwood
eleven at Collingwood at 3:00.
The Pro Rec-Varsity game
promises to be one of the wildest
tussles ever seen in soccer circles.
Buck Bennie.one of Varsity's most
famous players, is leaving the university soon and plans to make
today's game his last. He intends
to make a definite impression on
the Pro-Rec boys—one or two ambulances will be standing by to
pick up the bodies.
Two new players will make their
debut with the Varsity team. They
are Holger Nygard and the famous
hardballer, Sandy Robertson.
With all this new strength, the
Varsity boys can't help but swamp
the Pro-Recs.
Before the Varsity-Pro Rec
game, there will be a scientific
exhibition of the game of Fitba
on the Upper Grounds. All
Scotchmen are especially welcome.
The Collingwood-UBC game also promises to be a struggle. Both
teams have great backing and
have been touted as the two most
promising teams in the league.
