1:30. The student is asked to state
on the form* provided, the tune
when he is available, the type of
work he wishes, and his experience.  The registration fee is 23c.
The Bureau will work something like this: Tho Selective Service Commission will notify the
Bureau of jobs available. Consulting the files, Uie office will match
up the employment with tho employment seeker. The applicants
will be dealt with in the order
they register. The student thus
selected will be given a slip introducing him to the employer, and
there the Bureau's responsibility
ends.
Those wishing to work in the
Post Office will have to re-register
at the Bureau and pay the fee.
Applications for other Christmas
work will also bo handled by tho
Bureau.
Buttercup Enterprises under
Dean Mawdsley will continue to
function as a separate unit,
• THERE ARE still 20 of last

These copies will v- held for a
short time, but if they are still
unclaimed in the near future they
will be sold for three dollars.
Season

• SCHEDULED for Satur-
day, October 17, the first
mixer of the year will be held
in Brock Hall under the
sponsorship of the Musical
Society. It will begin at
8:30 o'clock and close at 12.
For the present, until the Varsity Orchestra, which contributed so greatly to the success of
last year's mixers, has been reorganized, the music will be supplied from the recorded hits of
the name bands of Canada and
the States.
Included in the programme will
bo a sing-song, led by M, C. Max
Warne, ef the Musical Society.

Ceremonial
Held For
Pub Mascot
•   HIS LITTLE chest puf-
fintf wilh prlito, nearly
tumbling from his altar In
exultation, Totie, mascot and
official 'god of the ALL-
AMERICAN TOTEM, ls
now receiving sacrificial offerings from 2:00 to 3:00 on
Fridays.
Yesterday a ceremonial danco
was held by pubsters about the
shrine. Sylph-liko editors gowned
in white performed the sacred
danco while cub reporters stood in
tho back-ground and chanted
"Join the Totimmortals." A sports
reporter was offered as sacrifice
and prayer mumbled for Salt, now
in the hands of His Majesty's Airforce.
When news of the honor accorded the Totem reached the Pub, a
telegram was sent "Tubby" in Edmonton. Salt telegraphed back
with Harold, Charlie, Allan, Doug.,
"Totie and I take the bow."
Although Lionel will be the last
to admit it, it was ho who put out
the TOTEM almost single-handedly. Assistants he had, but tho
theme was only in the mind of the
master, and nearly every Jtory had
to be revised by him in order to
conform to the central trzl 1 X^IC
such a  large  factor in  the
was
granting of the reward.
PUB FIXTURE
Salt had been a fixture in the
Pub for four years and knew more
about reader appeal than most
pubsters ever will. His columns
on sex were eagerly discussed in
all campus circles.
Starting in the Pub in his first
year on the campus In 1937, ho
soon rose to the position of Sports
Editor and became the University
correspondent for the Vancouver
Sun. In his capacity as associate
editor of tho 1941 Totem, ho gained
the valuable experience which enabled him to turn out a UBC yearbook which is, for the second time,
the only annual Canadian annual
to win the NSPA award.

corner in the Pub where he kept his works of art, overdue Library books, and Totie. This
picture of Salt, gazing up at his favorite subject with the ever-present pipe, will be remembered by pubsters as typical of one of the best of the progeny of Thoth.

Buchanan
To Lecture
• LECTURING at the request
of the Canadian Clubs of Canada, Dean Buchanan left the University for two weeks last Sunday, October 9.
His tour will include the Men's
and Women's Canadian Clubs at
Edmonton, North Battleford, Saskatoon, Biggar, Prince Albert, Re-
gina, Moose Jaw, Medicine Hat,
and  Banff.

Artsmen
Meet, Elect
Officers
• AN ESTIMATED 48 students—three and two-
thirds per cent, of the total
Arts Undergraduate population—yesterday ratified the
formation of an Arts Undergraduate Society to include
both men and women students.
Hugh Ritchie is president of the
organization. Elected to the position of vice-president at yesterday's meeting is Jim Morton, and
secretary is Jean-Carol Lee.
$1,200—one dollar for each arts
student—is to be spent this ycar for
cither a large Arts banquet or
separate class parties. Decision on
tho matter has been tabled for the
next meeting.
It was suggested by Lucy Berton
that admission to mixers be ono
war saving stamp. This, too, will
bo decided at tho next meetings.
Student apathy towards the new
organization was notable, and one
of its first duties seems to be to
foster a bit moro class spirit among
Arts students.
Homecoming

Back Alums
• UNDERGRADUATES
will 'welcome -Alumnae
back to the campus at the
annual Homecoming celebration to be held Saturday,

Salt Takes Bow
For Yearbook's
1941 Editor
•   "TOTIE" did it again.
Announcement has been received that the 1941-42
Totem, last UBC yearbook for the duration, under Editor
Lionel Salt and Mascot "Totie", has won an "All-American
Honor Rating" in the twenty-second National Yearbook
Critical Service of, the National Press Association.
This is the second time in sue- —
cession tliat the Totem has won
the award in competition with colleges throughout the North Amer-
icon continent. The Totem is the
first Canadian university annual
to be so honored.
Out of 226 college annuals judged, the Totem was one out of
seven given thc award in the class
of universities with from 1,000 to
2,499 students.
In speaking of the prize-winning
Totem, the NSPA judge said "Congratulations on a well-framed and
executed book. It gives a real
picture of your university during
war time, and should be treasured
in years to come. I hope you can
start publication again in'the near
future."
Lion's share of the credit for
the success of the Totem goes to

Lionel left Varsity last year to

Amcrican Totem were Business
Manager Doug Maloney; Advertising Manager Jim Boughton; Associate Editors Honoree Young,
Edna Winram and Les Bewley;
Sports Editor Jack Ferry, aided
by Bill Gait; and Cameraman Allan Coc, Dave Lawson, and Hughie
Aikcns.
Also deserving credit are Cle-
land and Kent Ltd., engravrs and
Ward and Phillips Ltd., printers.
Interest in the Totem of these two
firms went beyond mere professional pride.
The evolution of the Totem from
a book of class photos to an All-
Amcrican yearbook is one of
battles and struggles. In 1938, It
made tho first step forward and
took its present form, under David
Crawley. In 1939, led by John Gar-

now to Cecil Cosulich, a
former UBC student.

ever since has been winning
honors.
Discontinued for the duration of
the war, the Totem's place will be
taken to a lesser degree by tbs)
Graduation Issue. Much less expensive and in the form of a magazine the Grad Isue will attempt
to moke up for the loss of UBC's
All-American Totem.
Eastern Canada College
Students Go Harvesting
• NEARLY 1,000 Eastern Canadian university students
have temporarily abondoned their varsity work to aid in
the harvesting of crops in Saskatchewan in response to a
plea from Dominion Labor Minister Mitchell for emergency
harvesters.
Tho student harvesters from
McGill, Queens, McMaster, ' Toronto, Western, Kingston and
Quebec universities will be paid
a minimum of four dollars a day
plus room and board and their
transportation to Saskatchewan.
Return transportation will bo
provided at a special rate of flO.
CONSIDERATION
Special consideration will be
given tho students in exams, and
it is being arranged for leaves of
absence to be given to members
of the COTC who go to help relieve the labor shortage in Saskatchewan.

Engineers
Join American
Institute
• THE constitution of the
University o f British
Columbia student chapter of
the American Institute of
Chemical Engineers was unanimously passed and approved at the council meeting of October 13, 1942.
A charter was received from the
Institute in July, and UBC chemical engineering students were able,
after eight years of endeavor, to
form an affiliation with the parent
society.
"The principal alms of the student chapter are the promotion of
chemical engineering on the campus and the affiliation of chemical
engineering students with the Institute," stated Sandy Buckland,
president of the group. "Student-
members benefit In that they are
taking the first steps towards becoming members og the parent organization," he added.

Part-Time Work
Formation of an employment bureau
on the campus to provide contact between
students who have some spare time which
they can devote to work, and employers,
who are greatly in need of labor, is a highly
commendable move, and is worthy of the
support of the student body.
These days there Is a great shortage of
man power, and any measure which will
help to relieve' industries faced with this
very serious problem, should receive every
consideration. Eastern Canadian students
are moving west to help in the harvest on
the prairies and there is plenty of opportunity, for western students to help out in
industries. This is especially true of B.C.,
where there are so many vital war industries suffering from lack of labor.
An employment bureau has been one
of the great needs of this campus for some
time. When nearly eighty per cent, of the
student body rely on summer jobs and
part-time work to earn all, or part, of their
fees, some organization which will assist
them to contact employers who need them,
will afford a great saving of time, both to
the student and to the employer.
At present there is no shortage of requests from employers for student workers, but it was not always thus, and there
is good reason to expect that future students will be faced with a difficult task
when they set out to get a job. That is
where this employment bureau has an ex-
a regular part of the university.
If this organization is handled properly it can promote lasting good will between
employers and student labor. With this as
a wedge it will be far easier to get the employers to hire university students in days
when they are not so short of help.
It should be quite easy for the employment bureau to provide, at the present
time, a very valuable service both to the
students and to the community. There is,
however, only one danger which it might
be be wise to emphasize.
As students attending a university in
war time, we must remember that our only
excuse for being here is that we are attempting to fit ourselves to take a place in
the community. Should high wages tempt
us to neglect our object then they will be
defeating the original purpose that the
government had in allowing us to come to
university.
If that- danger is avoided, and it is the
task of the students who take the work to
avoid it, then the whole plan should be a
great success.

Unpopular Science
Vancouver's fight against the chlorina-
tion of its water has an interesting sidelight
in the attacks being made on the scientific
opinions which have been expressed on the
subject.
Dr. C. E. Dolman, head of the UBC
Department of Bacteriology and Preventive
Medicine, whose report on the condition of
the water, made as the head of the Provincial laboratories, resulted in the chlorina-
tion order from Ottawa, has received a great
deal of the attention paid to the men of
science.
The Vancouver Sun, always willing to
capitalize on a situation involving public
opinion, has been the leader in the attacks
on Dr. Dolman. Several weeks ago this
paper published a column which drew a
picture of Dolman as a cold-blooded man of
science, and endeavored to show that he was
incapable of looking at the chlorination problem with anything but a strictly scientific
view. A few nights ago The Sun published
a letter, typical of the reaction this payer has
aroused. The letter (signed UBC Arts '40)
said in effect that Dr. Dolman was, because
of his stand, a discredit to the University
at which he is employed.
It is our opinion that any professor in
this university who uses his training to reach
a conclusion, and then, without catering to
public sentiment, gives his findings and
stands by them when called upon, is a credit
to the standards of our universities.
It is the job of a university to give out
a training which will enable men to tackle
problems both social and scientific, with an
approach which avoids bias and prejudice,
which seeks for the truth in a logical manner
and which does not shirk from the presentation of the truth. Science courses in particular are noted for the standards of accuracy which they set.
It would be foolish to say that science
is perfectly infallible, but in spite of intolerance, misunderstanding and in many cases,
ignorance, science has made great contributions to the modern world. This applies to
the field of public health where the scientist, who has tried to introduce new methods
or measures to protect health, has frequently
been forced to buck a wave of popular feeling which is based on personal interests.
It is a strange sight in a supposedly
modern world, when people pay for the services of highly trained men, and then refuse
to accept their recommendations.
Scientific approach may not be perfect.
But neither is anything else. The fact remains that science has been time-tested and
is based on accurate observation and careful
study, and has proven to bo tho best method
of tackling any problem which may face us.
Science is constantly changing and its ability
to adapt itself is a recommendation. Sentiment is generally founded on a shaky base.
It is slow to change and it is impractical to
use it as a basic for judgment.
We hope that the universities will continue to turn out men who are willing to
devote their energies to a scientific study of
the facts, and who will be willing to hold
by their decisions until these decisions ate
refuted on logical grounds. We hope, too,
that the press will give these men a fair hearing, and that they will not try to dispute
them by appealing to popular sentiment
rather than intelligence.

ummery  —byjauz
Once upon a time, long, long, ago, before anyone had heard of Hitler or Mussolini or Lifebuoy, there lived a very plump
man named Emperor Concertinus the Colossal, who commuted between Rome and Cleopatra before she gave him the old barber
shop brush off in favour of one Marc Anthony, the answer to a maiden's phone number. Now, this Concertinus was a dyspeptic grouch, due to his habit of taking the odd
snort of olive oil without soda, and we do
mean bicarbonate. He was never really
happy unless he was burning a Christian
here and a Christian there, and sometimes
all over.
So one day we find him sitting in the
ping-pong room, morosely watching his latest troup of dancing girls, the Carthagiian
Follies, supposed to be the hottest outfit
north of the Tiber, as the historian Heroditus
tells us with his teeth in his cheek. Connie,
for 'twas thus that he was called by the boys
down at the Arena. Connie turns to the
giant Nubian slave standing behind him in
the capacity of Vice-President in charge of
Kill That Thing Before It Lays Its Eggs.
"Where are those Christians I ordered
from Sears, Roebuck; Snowball?" barks die
Emperor.
"They's heah, boss," the slave replies,
drawing a bead on a bluebottle.
"Then why the hellos don't they send
them up, with the matches?" screams Connie, punching his pillows viciously.
"Well, boss," says the technicolour job,
"I done heard they was held up at de customs
by de man lookin' to see if they done brought
in mo' than $100 worth of goods."
"Bah," snarls the Emp., and unwraps a
package of Fleishman's Yeast.
He stares a moment at the dancers, who
are just going into a Macedonian version of
the Kansas City Cakewalk.
"Women," he growls.
"Yeah, man, boss," grins Snowball,
snipping at a daddy longlegs.
"What are they but a lot of skin and
bones and hair, tossed together?"
"That fo' me, boss," yells Snowball, for-
gettin ghimself completely.
By the end of the week everyone had
forgotten him.
"Ship these babes back to the Major,"
the Emperor orders the new slave, "and tell
him he can send his next few units to the
Imperial sawdust bin. And send in a new
clown.   This one seems to be dead."
A few moments later, a strange, little
man enters, covered with green paint, waving a calendar in one hand and a calendar
in the other.
"What's your name, fool?" snarls Concertinus.

• A Year Ago
• ARTSMEN stayed away from
their annual elections en
masse. "Always willing to crowd
their class parties but never willing to put forth any effort, that's
the Artsmen," ran a scathing editorial in which it was proposed
that as a penalty the class party
money of lethargic Arts be used to
buy smokes for soldiers.
The Air Training Plan for Un-
dergraduates was authorized by
tho Senate, with three credits
granted to students completing the
course.
"Buttercup Enterprises, Ltd.",
Dean Mawdsleys employment service for co-eds was initiated. The
girls nurse-maided evenings.
The Blood Donor campaign began ond brawny males were reassured at assembly that it wouldn't hurt this time to give.
, At the Hill-Billy party one
Fraterian smoked a corn-cob pipe
all evening.
THE MUMMERY
(Continued From Previous Col.)
"Shall I tell you in Latin or will
you take it straight?" laughs the
joker, nervously.
"FROSHUS," he continues, wiping the blood from his nose.
"Froshus is the name."
"O.K., Froshus," sighs the Emp.,
"make like Bob Hope.'
And that children, was the start
of the freshman as we know him
today, and try not to. For this
squirrel, Froshus, was later identified as a first year student at
Rome Tech, and Aggie, where he
had enjoyed that position for
more years than the Faculty cared to remember. And if this evidence appears somewhat hungry
to the native eye, it is definitely
corroborated by the words of the
mighty Cicero when, standing before the Senate in his custom-
built toga, he solemnly declared:
"Hunc jam lpsit dipsit oof hanc
valves grindes, hujus?"
Or, In the free translation:
"The Emperor has been writing
to the papers about the last shipment of dates not being fresh,
men?"
The comma has been definitely
debunked by the best historians
as a hyphen that has goon Hollywood. But don't let me get on the
subject of dates and freshmen.
This column is supposed to be
funny but not that funny.
I think the tale is very Interesting, though, now that the academic vernal equinox has again
hit tho campus. Once more the
new sap is circulating in the old
tree, New limbs have sprouted,
and very nice, too. Tho some old
bark may be heard in the lecture
rooms. But don't let me carry the
figure too far, as the Duchess said
to the Count, when he suggested
a hike through the Adirondacks.
And so, as the dusk falls across
the peak of Mount Blanc, we say
goodby to old Hawaii, until next
week, when we return for a tramp
through tho Jungles of Darkest
Africa. Be sure you bring your
own flytox,  children.

he been the protector and monitor
of the Pub—in fact, his is a name
common to the cars and lips of ail
concerned with the newspaper
trade, but to nono did he have
more meaning than to the Ubyssey,
He is our comfort and shelter in
moments of stresj. Each press
night as the paper goes to bed, oa
Fred pulls the final fatal proof,
every pubster utters a silent prayer to Etoain. If, on one of th.w>
rar occasious, the UBYSSEY is
presented with a scoop, a tlcvout
group gathers about THE desk in
the Totem office and offers thanks
for Etaoin's benediction. And not
only in journalistic matter is ho
our guide, but in all the difficulties in our daily life.
But some time ago ,the hallowed
name appeared as a printer's error
at press. Fearing some mystic
power behind this slip, we stared
aghast at the words until, glowing
with divine inspiration, one of the
more worldly individuals suddenly beetled down to the linotype
machine and returned with the
news that Shrdlu was but the offspring of a linotype, spawned in
the first two rows of letters.
Ho did not lose any of his fascination for us, through the revelation, nor did we lose any of our
faith in him. He is still the greatest character in Pub history to us.
• A CHARACTER who seems to
us to be more of a mortal being
since we can actually see the results of his actions, even though
we have never actually seen him
himself, is SAMMY. Sammy is
without a last name. No one has
ever heard it mentioned or has
even felt that he needed one, he
is so well known in the office. He
is entirely different fr*om Etaoin.
Where the latter is the benefactor
of the Pub, Sammy is the mischief-
maker.
He is the one who sneaks down
to the Pub and opens doors at the
most Inauspicious moments. He is
the ono who pushes shut windows
when the Brock basement Is as
stuffy as only it and lecture rooms
can be. He is the one who hides
copy pencils; and destroys untyped
notices, incurring the unabated
fury of irate little club executives
whose whole futures are threatened by such disastrous occurences.
And he is the one who leaves messages for gullible pubsters to
phone a certain number and ask
for Len Kay.
• AT LEAST, all of these plots
were    attributed   to   Sammy
until we realized that so much
trouble could never be the evil-
doing of only one man. Then we
discovered his accomplice—flesh of
his flesh, blood of his blood, his
own son OGLETHORPE.
Oglethorpe is quite young, he has
not yet acquired all the irritable
habits of his parent but- he is an
apt and attentive pupil. He takes
care of the minor acts of destruction, such as breaking Into the Pub
at nights and leaving all the lights
burning- with the result that we
are invariably working with at
least two Inactive bulbs.
We realize it ls too late to reform the elder of this degenerate
pair, but it is heartbreaking to see
such delinquency in one as young
as he. Here is your subject for
psychologists and sociologists. If
anyone can suggest a suitable case
method of treating Oglethorpe he
will be eternally blessed by the
Pub and Etaoin and given our full
co-operation.

Ocean Park
Site Of First
SCM Camp
• * THE exceptional weather last weekend and the
fine camp site at Ocean Park
made the first S.C.M. camp
of the session a remarkable
success.
Amongst the forty-one students
attending, the co-ops were well
represented, with the co-op girls
leading in the flrc-side songs.
Lounging on the beach, exploring the Autumn trails, or cookhouse duties occupied the campers
between organised games and discussions.
After Dr. Melvln's address on
Saturday night, Ed Wyburn led
a variety of dance and song.
The Sunday discussions revealed
S.C.M. opinions on the vital topic
of students In a total war economy. Most of the students participating felt that they were a very
privileged group receiving still
more privileges, and that they
should show their appreciation in
a concrete way.
With the group seated around
the vast stone fireplace in the
dark, Max Warner played violin
selections at request, concluding
what many of tho old timers in
the movement call one of the best
camps ever held.
President Ed Wyburn welcomes
all Freshmen to visit the S.C.M.
room next door to theHealth office.
Unused Carrells
Filled Soon—Lamb
• IN ANSWER to the inquiries of
students regarding the apparent
number of unused carrolls, Dr.
Kayo Lamb, Librarian, stated.
"This occurs every yea?."
"The reason is that people who
, have the privilege of using permanent stacks have not yet settled
down to study." He thought that
in another two weeks this condition would be much changed.
"I am sure, however," said Dr.
Lamb, "Miss Lanning will not refuse, without excellent reasons, a
temporary permit to any Fourth
year student in Arts."

In recognition of its merits is awarded

Press Association akj. the University of Minnesota, School of Journalism, this
First day of November, 1941.
To Red Cross This Year
•   "AN AMBULANCE for .Christmas" is the slogan of the
War Aid Council as they set out to launch the campus
war effort for 1942-43.
It was decided to make a definite __^__^_________^^_
objective for the fall term and an ^
ambulance, which will cost $1780,
has been chosen. When the ambulance is bought it will be turned
over to the Red Cross for service
overseas.
Present plans call for a concentration of all the University War
Aid functions, Including self-denial
funds, mile-of-pennles drives and
special events such as mixers, into
one fund; the sum total going towards the ambulance. Although
this will mean raising a larger
amount than was raised last fall,
it is pointed out that most of the
activities last year took place after
Christmas.
Arrangements are being made to
have a Red Cross ambulance
brought on the campus as the
feature attraction at one of the
drives. It will not be possible to
bring the ambulance which will
actually be bought. However, the
one which it is proposed to bring
to the campus will be exactly the
same. UBC's donation will carry
a placque, crediting it as a gift
from the undergrads.
No plans are being made for
after Christmas but it ls expected
that this years War Aid Council
will try to surpass the excellent
total gathered by the body last
year.

Staggers
Lectures
• LECTURES at the University of Toronto will in
future be staggered, beginning on the half hour and at
twenty minutes to the hour.
This innovation will necessitate classes beginning at 8:30
instead of 9:00.
A similar plan of staggered lectures, to ease the traffic situation, has been suggested at UBC,
but no such move has been made
as yet.
Current Topics Subjects
Of Vancouver Institute
* ALMOST every current topic, from a discussion of the
war in its fourth year, to nutrition and psychology will
form the subject matter of this winter's series of Saturday
evening lectures given by the Vancouver Instituute in the
UBC auditorium.
The Institute, which '« connected
with the Department of University
Extension, was organized for the
purpose of creating interest in •
knowledge of art, science, literature, and kindred subjects among
laymen ouUide the university. The
lectures given are popular presentations of some aspects of these
fields of knowledge.
The autumn program is as fol-

Cancelled
• BECAUSE of insufficient
student interest, the proposed series of noon hour
lectures by Dr. Ida Halpern
on Musical Appreciation will
not be held.
The Student Council decided
that it would not be to the best
interests of the Alma Mator Society
to engage Dr. Halpern at a cost
of $160 for the small number of
31 students who expressed an interest in attending.
Last year evening lectures were
given by Dr. Halpern as a pass feature, and other interested persons not attending University were
admitted for a nominal fee.

Eaton's Etchings
By ART EATON
• THE INTEREST shown in American football during
the past week has led to some inquiries, and a great
deal of historical research by your humble writer. This
subject has proven to be almost as interesting as the topic
under discussion last week. I decided to adopt the same
means of investigation because it was the simplest, and the
easiest, and the most logical.
EVOLUTION OF MAN
The history of the g*ame goes far, far back beyond
the annals of recorded time, to probably the day when the
first amoeba became disgusted with his one-celled existence, and decided to make a change. It is said that this
creature murmured something about a sneak end run as
he slithered out of the Atlantic, what there was of it, and
carried the mythical ball to the shores of Tripoli.
But for the ensuing several million years, the scrimmage seems to have messed things up sd badly, that it is
impossible to glean any sequence out of the whole thing.
And so we are certain of nothing until the time of the
Greeks. It was in 732 B.C., that the Spartans, an ingenious,
if unphilosophic group of fellows, devised the now famous
sleeper play. The Athenians, hereditary enemies of the
Spartans, took offense at the new move, called foul play,
and demanded another game. They called it the Polopone-
sian War.
ROMAN TWIST
Ah, but the Romans, bless them, were the ones. They
gave the sport such a boost in their time, that the game
has lasted right down to the present. The old arena at the
Capital City was filled every day with crowds of enthusiastic football fans who cheered the players on every clever
move. Augustus himself, it is said, carried the ball for the
Pink League in 347.
The much touted forward pass, used by many of the
most discriminating teams today, is actually the result of
the brain wave of one swain called Boris, who got the idea
from watching a lord of a manor throw beer bottles out of
a window, or casement, (it doesn't matter). In the auspicious year of the battle of Blenheim, Boris put his theories
to a practical use by teaching the English gentry and other
swains to use a bow to take a hundred yard run away
OF PIGMIES AND PROmBITION
There were no new developments until the time of
the era of prohibition, when the whole world was amazed
by the exploits of the Zanzibar entry in the pygmy festival
held in Africa, around the region of the Great Jungle. Because of prohibition, the spectators were so sober that they
were able to see one of the most clever plays ever executed.
The Zanzibarians won handily by a length by using a three
man line against their opponents' two man line. It was a
victory for the mathematicians.
SCIENTIFIC CONCLUSIONS
Now, this investigation has been interesting, to both
the follower of sports and to the man who just lives. But
it is necessary to derive some sort of conclusions from any
investigation. These have been reached, and are now
listed.
1. The game is a rough one, though it has become
more gentle as the years have gone by. The Greeks and
the Romans, brave souls, used to play for keeps.
2. The game is a good one to watch, for it has a fine
historical background, filled with traditions, and blood.
3. Farina will coach Varsity's entry.
4. This has all been a waste of time, and more of it
can be prevented by more sporting news, and more active
reporters to get it.

When an air raid warning is given,
do not shut off the gas at the meter.

Soccermen Are Defeated In Opener
0 VARSITY'S hope in the V. and
D. soccer league received a
sharp set-back Saturday at Powell
Street grounds when our round-
ball artists were defeated by the
highly skilled West Coast Shipbuilders team.
Playing with about half a dozen
former Coast League players, the
West Coast team was able to make
only one tally In the first half.
But came the second half and
then the slaughter began. Playing
with the wind and rain against
them in a muddy and heavy field
Varsity had a job and a half try-
fng to hold the goal-hungry West
Coast team to three counters.
Our boy3 were not exactly In
the groove in this their first game.
Jim Morton summed up the game:
"They were good—we should have
played better."
This Saturday at Memorial West
they will try to redeem themselves
against the Pro-Rec Rangers. Last
Saturday two of Varsity's stars,
Mel   Oughton,   and   Stu   Roach,
centre-half were missing. Stu, by
the way has left school and won't
be available.
The squad, with Gordy Johnson
as manager included: Herb Smith,
Pat Campbell, Bill Walker, Don
Urquhart, Frank Adams, Norm
Tupper, George Campbell, Clem
Philley, Jim Morton, Walt. Greene.
Frosh Attention! The soccer
team Is still on the lookout for
more players. There are still some
good men around so how about
turning out?   See Gordy Johnson.
Frosh Hoopers Organized
By MAURY SOWARD
•   AT 12:30 LAST Wednesday, Coach Art Johnson called
his Intermediate A Frosh proteges together in the gym
to organize them for the coming basketball season.
The first game for ye Frosh will be sometime next
week. Johnson said that he had received word that the
league schedule would begin on October 20. He was not
told at the time whether his squad would play the first game
or not. Art, however, seems confident that his boys would
play sometime during the week.
STANDARDS HIGH 	
This year's squad will have to be
pretty good to hold up the standard
of play set by last year's. That
team reached the finals of the Intermediate A League playoffs last
year, and were barely nosed by the
Sparling crew, who went on to
win the Provincial champlonship.I
Three members of last season's

with this year's Senior A team,
namely: Davo Hayward, Bruce

Varsity Wins;
UBC Defeated
In Cup Series
By NORM KLENMAN
•   SIX DAYS have elapsed since the dampish Miller Cup
rugger opened, but Varsity's big win over Ex-Byng In the
Brockton Point feature attraction last Saturday is still being
talked about.
BIG CHANCE
In informal discussions at the
meeting of the Vancouver Rugby
Union Tuesday night, beliefs that
Varsity had a good chance to
hold its own this year were expressed.
A team of stalwart ruggers,
chosen at random by Coach
Maury Van Vliet, took the field
hopefully and thrilled the sparce-
ly populated stands with as good
an opening day Miller Cup show
as has been seen in many years.
BYNG BOUNCED
Champion Ex • Byngs never
knew what hit them when Varsity started its fast-breaking, hard-
tackling tactics. Veteran AL Na«
rod shot the Varsity men Into the
lead with an early try when he
burst over the ex-Byng line from
a loose-scrum.
The champs evened the count
early in the second half on a try
by Alex Carlisle, but the tie vanished when Al. Jones, a UBC freshman, dribbled past two defenders and crossed the final five
yards free.
Varsity B did not fare so well
in its contest with Rowing Club,
but the rowers had a hard fight
to end in the lead.
RETO SfflNES
Dougie Reld, star receiving half
in the Inter-High Rugby Association last year, kicked a beautiful
penalty to put the B boys ahead.
But the Oarsmen plugged away
until the breaks came. Sammy
Turonne Intercepted a pass and
whisked it to Don Rush, who
crossed the line. Norm Constantino converted brilliantly and
sent his buddies into the lead.
Tomorrow's schedule, compiled
at the Union Meeting, Tuesday,
places Varsity in line for two engagements once again, but no definite word that they will fulfil
torn bas bean hoard.
PLANS MADE
For the purposes of clarity, th*
name "Varsity" has been given to
the A team and "UBC' to the B
boys. The former will meet
Rowing Club in Brockton Oval
at 3:15, and the latter are billed
for a match with Ex-Byng in the
lower pitch at 2:30.
Navy and Ex-Britannia, Incl-
dently, are due to clash in the
opener at 2:15, which makes a
total of si xteams at this Juncture
of events. The Union executives
are dickering for an Army and
an Airforce entry, but no official
word has yet been released.
Football Prospects
Shape Up Well For
Opener On Saturday
•   WITH THEIR FIRST trial still a week and a day away,
the Varsity American Football squad ls already rounding out nicely, and is showing more titan a little promise In
its evening floodlight practises.
FARINA HAPPY _^______
Coach Johnny Farina is fairly
satisfied with the team's progress
thus far, expressing particular
confidence in his backfield of Reld,
Murphy, Ouman, Peacock and Is-
lop.
Ends also are rounding out to the
coach's satisfaction, however the
tackles have been a trifle disappointing thus far, lack of weight
being the main problem just now.
UPPERCLASSMEN NEEDED
The plea at present, however, is
for upperclassmen, more specifically "180-pound upperclassmetn,
who run a 10.5 hundred yards in
full strip." The team was first
announced as an all Frosh entry,
but since this status has been
changed, there Is still room on the
line-up for several good upperclassmen.
Farina announces that an adaption of the Notre Dame system will
be used by the UBC gridders,
pointing out that a Canadian interpretation of that system has
been in use at Varsity for some
time now.
RULE REVISIONS
Salient differences in rules between the familiar Canadian system and the unfamiliar American
code are summarized below:
1. Four downs instead of three.
2. Unrestricted blocking all the
way down the field.
3. Forward  pass need  not  pass
Golf Men

The University Golf Club will

the line of scrimmage.
4. No yards are given to a kick
