Blood Clinic Closes  Prematurely
Students Rejected
Bottles Run Out

Virtually swamped with blood, the Red Cross blood donor
clinic was forced to close the armouries at 11:30 Friday morning after having obtained all the blood their facilities could

SWIMMING POOL to be built at UBC is pictured at
left of Memorial Gymnasium in artist's sketch above. The
$279,000 pool will seat 6500 for the British Empire Games.
Work has started by Marwell Construction Co. of Van
couver, and is expected to be completed by next June.
Selection of UBC as the pool site last spring touched off a
flurry of protests from Vancouverites, which caused the site
to be temporarily moved to Riley Park, Vancouver.
BEG Pool Construction Begins
About eight months from now
UBC students may put on bathing suits, take a long run and
a jump Ino the water, and yell
"Whee, at long last."
And as they are splashing
about and blowing out streams
of water they can rejoice that
UBC finally has the British
Empire Games swimming pool.
It is certain now. UBC has
the pool and no one, not even
Percy Norman and his people's
committee, can ever take it
away again.-
University has signed an
agreement with BEG, and staking
of the site started Tuesday.
The $270,000 contract for the
pool was swarded to Paddock
Engineering Co. of Los Angeles,
and Marwell Construction Co.
of Vancouver will start breaking ground in three to four days.
The pool, which will be attached to Memorial Gymnasium,
will seat 6,500 for the games,
have a constantly recirculating
system which changes the water
Club, and his committee loudly
protested until it was taken
away from' UBC and given to
Riley Park, Vancouver.
But no Vancouver contractors
could offer to build the pool for
$300,000 or less, so thc contract
was given to Paddock Company.
Vancouver Parks Board said
it would not be responsible for
the pool's operation if an American firm built it, so back to
UBC it came, where It will be
maintained at no cost to Van-
After the BEG, 8,700 of the
seats will be dismantled and
sold, and the roof, costing about
$250,000 will be added.
'John Springer, student representative on the university pool
committee, promised students
will "definitely not" be asked
to provide any more money for
the pool.
Construction of the pool,
which is to be done by the Marwell firm of Vancouver with
local labor and materials, will
be under the supervision of university architects Sharp, Berwick, Thompson and Pratt.
The pool will be 50 by 165
feet. It will be three feet six
inches deep at one end, 16 feet
six  inchs at thc other.
Lockers, showers and heating

used for the pool.

Paddock will remain at the pool
six weeks after it is completed
to instruct the regular engineers
who are to take care of it.

"But $21,000 of the $300,000
was wasted," Springer said,
"in paying architects Gardiner
and Thorton for plans for a pool
at Riley Park."
Percy Norman and his committee are now demanding a
second pool to be built in Vancouver out of surplus funds
from thc BEG pool.
"But there is no surplus,"
Springer said. "The surplus is

Red Cross had scheduled a clinic
at Kamloops for this week and
consequently were unwilling to
divert too much equipment to
the campus clinic.
Equipped to take only 300
pints daily, the clinic was taken
by surprise as students gave an
average of 370 pints daily. Institution of the 300-pint clinic
was considered over-optimistic
by many, remembering the 10-
day fall drive last year which
drew only 1,520 donors to the

The larger showing, although

UBC Students
Hard Workers
UBC students work twice as
fast as people expect.
At least this is what one local
company has discovered with
13 students working with the
firm during the summer. These
students were able to complete
an estimated 30-hour job in exactly half the time thus saving
the company a considerable
sum in wages and costs.
Placement service further announced a great range of part
time and semi-permanent jobs
open to students this year. Men
have been placed in warehouse
work, as parking lot attendants,
as filling station attendants, in
delivery work, as taxi drivers,
and a variety of others. Women
have found openings in department stores, in clerical work, as
baby sitters and as typists.
Placement service registration for part-time and casual
work is now 145 men and 28
women, but these figures do not
take into consideration the approximately ISO men and women working around the campus under the self-help plan.
Of the 145 registered, 24 have
been placed in jobs likely to be
18-year-old mechanical engineering student was killed
and two workmen received
injuries in two separate accidents here.
Jens W. Petersen, a third-
quarter freshman at University of Washington, was killed
when his car left the road 23
miles from  Leavenworth.
Two workmen who were
tearing down a campus building, were sent to hospital
when a wall of the building
collapsed on them.

East Under
World University Service completed its plans to bring exchange students from Europe
last week with thc arrival of
Wolfram Kretschmar from Hamburg.
Kretschmar's arrival here to
major in Zoology brings to four
the number of exchange students
at UBC. Others are Roland Mag-
ny, here from France to take
civil engineering; Vladimir Pie-
shakov, from Yugoslavia, and
Harro Hahn, from Germany, who
are both Physics students.
WUS, which recently changed
its name from International Student Service, receives $1 ot each
student's AMS fee. Part of this
money goes toward providing exchange students with room and
board at Acadia Camp, hospital
Insurance, $20 per month pocket
money, and textbooks.
Plashakov and Hahn will
speak before various organizations soon, enlightening them,
and explaining the customs of
their homelands.
Three UBC students, Betty,
Bogel, Bruce Gifford, and Mu
riel Trimble, were sent to Germany last week. A fourth,
George Fujisawa, will be leaving for Japan in a few days.

Educated  Indians
Above Hard Work
"Indian students are above
hard work," the UN club was
told Friday when Jane Banfield
and Ken Farris addressed the
meeting after their return from a
seminar in the new eastern nation. ,
Speaking on "The College
System" in India, Farris declared that 'the educated suffer from
intellectual snobbery.'
Miss Banfield and Farris were
UBC's representatives on the
Canadian delegation of university students who were hosted
during the summer months by
their Indian  counterparts.
Farris went on to say that Indian   students,   "after   receiving
| their degrees at a very early age,
refuse to do manual labor."
Miss Banfield, speaking of the
students  themselves,    said    she
I was surprised at the lack of exchange between male and female
I students.
"They showed great concern
Iwhen myself and another girl
|played Softball with the boys."
Indians, she >uicl, place great
stress op, examinations and prior
to writing them students "drive
tlieuiseU es sick studying."
Now Started
International House will again
institute its Orientation week
lectures for students unfamiliar
with Canada.
Although not completely restricted to Foreign students, the
Orientation week is mostly for
those students unfamiliar with
Canadian customs. The lectures
will be held in Physics 200 during noon hours from Oct. 13 to
Oct. 18.
Speakers will include Professors Geoffrey Davies and David
Corbett and Mr. McCellph.
First lecture will be taken by
Prof. Davies, who will speak on
" Canadian Foreign Policy."
Prof. Davies has recently returned from a three-month visit
to several European countries.
"Education in Canada" is the
subject to be taken by Mr. McCellph, who is head of the B. C.
Department of Education. He
will discuss Canadian universities and schools.
Prof. Corbett, authority pn
the Canadian civil service, will
speak on "Canadian Domestic
Policy" for the third lecture.
A representative of the National Film Board will for the
fourth lecture discuss the
growth of the national film industry in Canada.

MONTREAL, Que., Oct. 12—
Canadian world university service next year hopes to raise
$20,000 from Canadian students
across the country for material
relief for the universities of the
depressed area.
This target figure for the next
year's efforts of WUSC was decided upon at the eighth annual
national assembly of the organization held this week-end at the
University of Montreal. The
figure represents an average
fifty cent contribution from all
Canadian students. Forty percent of money that the organization raises this year has been
earmarked for one major project. The project is a health
centre for the University of New
Delhi in India.
It is estimated that this project will cost upwards of $8,000
and could be finished within one
year should sufficient money be
raised for it.
It is planned that it will house
equipment for examining students on a regular basis, contain
a dispensary and an x-ray machine.
The national assembly also
decided that the organization
should attempt to hold a seminar (similar to the one held in
India this summer" in the summer of 1955, either in Africa,
Asia', or the Middle East, with
preference for the former. It
is also hoped that various study
projects in Europe and possibly
in Asia may be arranged for the
summer of  1954.
Reports were heard on the
last seminar in India from those
of the delegates who had been
to it and the assembly was very
favorably impressed. The WUSC
plans to continue to expand and
co-ordinate its scholarship plan
into a national one and the
standing committee of the organization was set up for that
It was also decided to continue to press the government
for the formation of the Canada
council and for the institution
of national scholarship for foreign students.
The assembly agreed to hold
the Indian handicraft sale again
this winter and a large number
of universities have begun to
arrange for it. It will be at
It is planned on December 9,
and will stay for four days.   It
opens this week in the Marl-
times and will travel right
across the country.
It was decided that the proceeds of the sale should be used
for the summer study program
plan for next summer. The
provision was made for its being
used for local contingencies.
The conference saw a new
WUS film featuring Dr. Ralph
Bunche of the U.N. This film
wil be exhibited on the Canadian campuses during the year.
The meeting was addressed by
Douglas Aitken, International
Journal Secretary of WUS, who
attended the conference while
on a brief visit to Canada.
The delegates were also introduced to the new travelling

NFCUS Delegates
To Oppose Affiliation
Two UBC student leaders are attending the 17th annual
National Federation of Canadian University students 6t McGill
University from Oct. 12 to 16.
Council president Ivan Feltham and Vaughn Lyon, UBC
NFCUS chairman, have left this week for Montreal.
Expected to cause some excitement at the meeting it the
proposal that NFCUS affiliate with International Unoin or
Students, a communist-front group.
Both Feltham and Lyon are,-
strongly opposed to such an af
filiation, and have been backed
by the general meeting here on
Oct. 1, when students voted
against the proposition.
Throughout the 27 years of
its operation, NFCUS has been
active in securing "better deals"
for Canadian university students.
During recent years NFCUS
has participated in international
student groups, sending observers or delegates to conferences
where student problems are
discussed and solutions proposed.

Although emerging from
their league opener on the
short end of an 11-8 count,
the Chiefs served notice on
the Vancouver Rugby Union
that they are a definite threat
to retain the silver-ware in a
wide-open first division schedule. '1
In Saturday's contest an absence of conditioning combined with defensive lapses—both
due to a deficiency in practice
time—lost the game.
However, an abundance of
capable material was displayed in all the contests that rugby mentor Albert Laithwaite
can afford to pick and chose
in his welding of a first divi
sion contender.
The Chiefs drew first blood
in Saturday's feature contest
when fleet winger John Newton pulled in a pass on his
own 40-yard line and raced
sixty yards for a try. Bob Mor-
ford's convert attempt went
wide.     '

Varsity Wins On Campus;
Second Squad Loses Away
Completely reversing its form and bearing no resemblance
to the team that lost to Hales last week the Varsity soccer team
rolled to an impressive 9-2 win over Sapperton here on Sunday.
The win left Varsity's league*
the quarter line, and Russ
Henschel duplicated the feat
to give Brits the half-time lead.
Newton set up the second
Varsity major with another
long run and a pass-in to Doug
McMillan who spun over the
line. Morford completed the
difficult convert to give UBC
a short-lived lead.
Tom Christie's conversion of
an Ex«Brit try, garnered when
the Chiefs lost possession of
the ball in a one-yard scrum,
ended the game.
The second division Braves,
lone Saturday victors, were
only able to field 13 men
against the Rowing Club; but
they were enough to rack up
a 11-0 win on tries by Mike
Bell and Ronnie EdKett, and
a conversion and penalty boot
by Richy Forde.
The inability of the fourth
UBC fifteen, the Redskins, to
field a team—after enthusiastic turnouts to practices had
led to hopes of entering a fifth
team in the league—could perhaps be blamed on the Thanksgiving weekend and resulting
exodus of out-of-townersi-
record al a win and a loss.
Varsity out-hustled the Sapperton XI all through Ihe game
and it paid off handsomely. Don
Gleig and Burl Dobson were brilliant throughout as they both
contributed two goals lo the Varsity cause.
The win, however, was a real
team effort as Glasgow, Butter-
field, Campbell, Fredrickson,
Matthews, all added singletons.
All was not rosy on the soccer
front however, as the UBC
Chiefs, badly weakened by the
loss of many players over the
holiday weekend lost a close one
to the B.C. Penitentiary Penguins by a 2-1 score.

Cricket Team
Shows Promise
By Duncan Thrasher
UBC's cricket team, which
wound up its season some two
months ago did not exactly set
the league on fire but they
were certainly an improvement
over last year's team.
Because a number of the players had lo leave town for summer jobs the chib was never at
top strength. But in spite of an
ever-changing line-up they finished fifth in the seven team first
division cricket league.
UBC Thunderbirds 20 ■ Oregon Wolves 6
A hard charging, blocking and tackling UBC line opened
up huge holes in Oregon College of Education's front defences
Saturday afternoon enabling the Thunderbirds to register their
second win this season via a 20-6 victory.
A tie game would equal UBC's all time record of two wins,
one tie which was set in 1951.
The line was working so well •-- --   ——
that quarterbacks Gordie Flc-!as ^ marched down to the
mons and Gerry Stewart could : 0rt'*on "ve-yard stripe. Bill
have taken all day to throw Stuart goin8 ovcr lctt tackle
their passes while the Wolves' iwcnt over lho fcoal-linc but
masterminds were repeatedly j Ambled and Oregon recovered,
thrown for losses !giving thf'm a touchback and a
Halfback   Jack    Hutchinson |lirst down on their own 25'
once    again    eluded    opposing |     Oregon   left   halfback   Chuck
lacklers   as he twinkle-toed for ' Pinion, playing his final year of
large  ground  gains  and  scored ; college ball, easily proved to be
two of the Birds'   three   touch- < the star for the Wolves. Follow-
Birds first scoring opportunity
came late in the first quarter
ing Stuart's costly fumble, Pinion took a handoff and raced 41
yards to the UBC 34.
The Blue and Gold's line, headed by stalwarts Kushnir, Elliot
and O'Flanagan, held them to a
four-yard gain in'four attempts,
as the gun sounded to end the
first quarter.    •
Ross Rayment, playing right
half took the ball from Flemons
on the next play and crashed
through the Oregon squad for a
51-yard gain to the opposition
24-yard line. Hutch scooted over
left guard for the major score on
the next play. Fieldgates' convert attempt went astray and
the Birds led 6-0.
Following the TD, Pinion
again proved his worth to the
Oregonian squad by taking Field-
gate's kickoff on his own 10 and
running it to the UBC 35 before
being hauled down. The Wolves
marched to <the UBC 20 but
fumbled and Kushnir recovered
it for the 'Birds.
With time running out in the
first half Flemons threw a long
pass to Fieldgate who was
tackled hard on the Oregon
seven and fumbled the ball. The
ball bounced out to the 12 before
Kushnir managed to pounce on
it. Two plays later 'Birds were
on the five but the gun sounded
to end the second quarter.
Coach Don Coryell, apparently satisfied with Flemon's work
in the first half decided to rest
him and sent in Gerry Stewart
to call signals in the final half
of the tilt.
The Varsity squad marched
down to Oregon's 20 where Stewart sent a beautiful spiral pass
to Fieldgate in the end zone for
the second UBC major score
Stewart passed to Hutch to make
the score 13-0.
An Oregon drive in the latter
part   of   the   third   quarter   was
stalled when a fourth down pass j
was incomplete on the home 34.1
A running   30-yard   pass   by;
Hutchinson to end Bill Bouldin,
took the ball to the Oregon 3 m
and a series of ground runs mov
ed it the five as the quarter
Hutch took a pitchout from
Stewart and went over for UBC's
final major of the day. Field-
gate's attempt was good; the
score: UBC 20 - OCE 0.
looked and played completely
different from last week's tilt
against Central . . . Wolves' captain Ray Cummings suffered a
severe ankle injury in the final
quarter . . . the Oregonians were
completely surprised after the
gam when UBC captain Bob Bra-
dy asked about hi.s injury. . . .
"Never happened before," said
one of the visitors . . . Coaches
Coryell and Mitchell gave the
team the weekend off as a prize.
