Homecoming has come and gone—and with it one of the
most colorful and nostalgic celebrations of the campus.
______________________——- The  Homecoming   program,  ar
ranged by Bob Harwood, junior
member of the council, was a success from beginning to end only
slightly marred by the 19-7 defeat
handed to the Thunderbirds by
College of Idaho.
From shortly before noon to
shortly after midnight, grads and
undergrads sported together on the
campus enjoying themselves to thc
Air Cadets of 11 Squadron Band
were on hand with music at the
football game, and added a colorful
touch to the entire proceedings.
Credit   must   also   be  given   to
Hunk Henderson and Keith MacDonald for arranging the evening
basketball game.
The final affair of the evening,
the dance In the armory, attracted
grads and undergrads with the
music of Frank Nightingale and
his orchestra.
Another spectacular .feature of
the dance was the display of Neon
sighs that greeted the grads. One
sign, saying "Welcome, Grads" and
another displaying the UBC crest
were prepared and donated by Mr.
E'ud Napier, of Neolite Signs.
Nine hundred dollars for the Gym Drive were collected

Now is the time.
Without any doubt, now is the time for
the entire student body to rally around the
War Memorial Gymnasium campaign. The
period of talking and planning has finally
passed, and the moment for over-the-top
action is here. As everyone must know by
now, the transition took place Saturday
morning when the parade from the Cenotaph
marked the opening of the renewed campaign to build the Gym.
Let no one doubt that a new Gymnasium
will be built on the campus, The project has
the backing of the provincial government
and of the university administration. In
addition, the recent decision of the students
to add a levy for the fund to their Alma
Mater Society fees almost assured that someday some kind of Gymnasium would be
But, whether the building will be as adequate as the one originally planned for, and
whether it will be built as goon aa materials
are available, or whether its construction
will have to be delayed five or ten years,
depend upon the success of the current drive.
Hie need for the drive's speedy success
in order to make it possible for the building
to go up as soon as critical materials are in
good supply is seen most clearly by those
who have kep the highest aims of the project
in mind.
Those aims were undoubtedly the deciding factors influencing the decisions of those
who were responsible for selection a Gymnasium as UBC's War Memorial. When the
choice was made it was well realized that
other buildings were needed on the campus,
but it was also recognized that nearly all
those others were gradually being provided
for, as they should, by the government.
There are those who say that a new Gymnasium, too, should be financed entirely by
the public treasury, but perhaps those behind
the Gym drive are more realistic in outlook.
And the choice was not made to provid^y
a palatial sports centre on the campus. It
was made rather to provide a training headquarters where physical education and community centre instructors could be properly
trained for the tasks which await them in
the entire province of British Columbia.
Anyone who doubts the need for such work
should read two sets of figures: the medical
rejection rates from the forces in the recent
war; and the juvenile delinquency statistics
from any community in B.C.
Now Is the time for everyone to jump on
the bandwagon. The job must be done—
but soon.
the straphanger
(The following is a reasonable translation
of an article which appeared in a recent
issue of Le Quartier Latin, bi-weekly student
publication of the University of Montreal.
It is a semi-literary paper and its editors
have their own quaint way of dealing with
current topics.)
We Are Come
To This Great Stage of Fools
The international stage has witnessed
one of the most brilliant seasons of all time.
The hangman has only just rung down
the curtain on the Nuremberg melodrama.
Although based on a threadbare theme,
Vae victis has been fortunate enough to find
favor with an extremely numerous audience.
The instincts of the mok vary little from
one centry to another, and the gala performances this time have been attended
with a new and imposing display of formality. All the versions of the script, written in
four languages, were enacted simultaneously: something unheard of since the Whitsuntide sermon It is the most highly moral
production of the year; in it is to be seen the
triumph on earth of immanent justice, which
has chosen for its champions those who first
were guilty of heinous criminal acts and who
redeem themselves by punishing their ill-
advised imitators.
At New York, United Nations or Les
Soeura Enemies, (not to be confused with
Racine's Theibade or Les Freres Ennemis)
is in the limelight. This is an heroic tragedy
in which the unfolding of the plot is continually being help up by some unforeseen
circumstance it especially recommends itself
to our attention by virtue of the nobility of
its characters and the talent of the actors,
who excel in this sort of thing. The troupe,
however, is not homogeneous arid lacks
esprit de corps; its members are travelling
players, haphazardly assembled by dint of
circumstance and chance encounters. It made
its- debut on the Pacific coast and is travelling to Europe following its American tour.
There are no theatrical performances in
Paris now. Allied Producers, who also made
Versailles Conference, have had a record
run of eleven weeks with Peace Conference.
Easily recognized in this production was the
influence of Lloyd George and Woodrow
Wilson, whose initial Conference v^fls unanimously acclaimed as a masterpiece of political comedy. A young Yugoslav has made
some promising first appearance under the
wing of the veteran Russian: he is to be
given a leading role in the final part of
War Cycle, the rehearsals for which are
coming along very nicely.
He will play the part of the Serbian who
died at the last presentation of World War I.
There will thus be no loss of local color.
This trilogy, conceivevd in the Wagnerian manner, and, according to some quarters,
altogether Germanic, is almost finished. Begun in 1914, it will have cost approximately
thirty-five years of planning, research and
superhuman effort—for some of the scenery
has yet to be completed, having been sacrificed to the exigencies of very realistic producing: the wherewithal has already been
collected, but the scarcity of manual labor
is still making itself felt.
The last part, World War HI, has as its
sub-title The Twilight of Civilization.

Have you ever felt absolutely clueless? I am sure you
have, and that is precisely the way I feel now. Having been
told I was to be "on the spot" in exactly two days, that
pathetic sickly green smile at once descended upon me. However, undaunted, I surged forward and decided that there
must be some way to get out of it — impossible!
The next best bet is to try to
p,et some brilliant person or maybe
even a friend to scratch off a few
thousand lines in my benefit
After endless hours of phoning I
find that:
1. There are no bril1 it people
ut the university and 2. I have nc
friends. There is only one solution
left, I must face the embarrass
ment of it all and turn out some
hideous little article confirming
the fact that I am just another
one of those dumb dames,' alias
Lena the Hyena.
Lining up six cups of coffee I
started in with a novel idea—My
Day. Since anything befoiv. jtght-
thirty is pure haze, and anything
after, pure agony, this all seems
rather pointless. However the oaf.
coffee keeps both eyes open ana
both hairs standing on end, long
enough to laugh at Joker jerk-
tiustics and watch the caf. spin
around as I exhale square smoke
In between cokes comes thc
'odd" psych, lecture, with Joker;
clowning between acts . and tn*
professor draped artistic ally
around the mike. From psych. I
proceed back to the oaf. full of
wild hopes of a hearty lunch, oniy
to find that after crawling over
numerous bodies to get to tho
table, one of my dear sorority
sisters was suffering huge pangs
of hunger and had eaten it. Be-
sides, being a pledge, there were
other jobs for me to do. Having
spent an unsuccessful lunch houi
I join the fnarch of death to English, where to be or not to be educated becomes a (strong point.
Somehow Bill Shekespeare and I
just don't speak the same language. He speaks English. The last
few hours are spent In grim concentration at the library. In true
upper-class fashion I twist some
innocent freshettes arm, grab her
chair, and thumb through the latest in Eaton's catalogue. All of
which goes to show, this university life is deadly—but I love it.
With Malice Aforethought
Just a flick of the dial and: Ladies, tonight before you
go to bed look in your mirror and ask yourselves these
simple questions, 'Do I look like a seventy-three-year-old
Limpopo matriarch? Have I got leprous patches on my beautiful skin?' . . Kill him darling, kick the dirty scab in
the guts . . . And now a message for the kiddies—Be regular like the boy next door, eat old Doctor Smedley's Brannie

won't be a bloody nigger in this country.

Ottawa Night School
Now Full-Fledged College
OTTAWA, Oct. 27 (CUP)-Carl-
eton College, a four-year old institution, is fast coming into its own
as a full-fledged vehicle on the
road of higher education in Canada. Today, with an enrolment of
more than 1,100 students and an
able and energetic soft, the College has made astonishing strides
since the first lectures in the fall
of 1942.
The beginning of Carleton College goes back to a series of meetings held by a committee of the
YMCA in 1938-39. Their purpose
was to discuss plans for much
needed educational facilities in
Outbreak of war halted all discussions, until, in 1942, the matter
became so urgent that plans were
put into effect regardless of obvious
wartime handicaps.
Teachers were obtained through
the Civil Service and in June 1942,
"The Ottawa Association for the
Advancement of Learning" was
fanned. Lectures at Carleton College began In September of the
same year, and a year later "The
lastitute ef Public Administration"
ww established and began Its
r lasses,
First home of the College was in
the Ottawa High School of Commerce. Aa registration grew, more
spaee was needed and accordingly
room* were rented in four city
collegiates, two public schools and
two churches.
Carleton students of those days
well remember the hurrying and
skurrying from one end of the city
to the other every day.
During 1945-46 more than 1200
veterans passed through the college most of whom were enrolled
in the short intensive courses preceding university entrance. These
condensed courses swelled the total
registration to 2200.
In September 1945, a four-year
course leading to a Bachelor of
Journalism degree was formed.
Also Instituted yast year were
feculties of Arts and Science and
of Public Administration, the former offering two year's Instruction,
and the latter, a four-year course
leading to the degree of Bachelor
of Public Administration.

Dear Sir:
It has been learned from the usually reliable sources that the
girls of Acadia Camp are reverting to some tried and true service
customs. Not being used to inde-
in-ndance they are going back to
tht- old standard of the service.
They are afraid of all the big baa
v.olves they have heard about and
have Instituted the good old bed
check. If they are going out after
"Lights Out," that is U p.m. they
sign out so they can be rescued it
evil befalls them.
The next step they are considering is having inspection, every
morning to see that the saddle
shoes are sufficiently dirty, the
sweaters sufficiently sloppy and
the skirts sufficiently plaid. Being
old and war-weary they are having to learn how to dress and act

Here's hoping that the person
who found my brown Waterman's

reads this. The pen, which was

Winbigler Leads Idaho Eleven   ^°^^-_     _   j** .y 'Bird Hoopmen
To Victory Over UBC Gridders
Before a Homecoming crowd of close to 5000 disappointed
fans, the Varsity Thunderbirds again succumbed to inexperience, when a sugar-smooth College of Idaho eleven slashed
their hopes of breaking into the Pacific Northwest Conference
win-column by racking up a clear-cut 19-7 victory on the
stadium gridiron, Saturday afternoon.    Flashing brilliant
form in isolated patches, Greg Kabat's gridmen still lacked
blocking finesse, and still proved themselves very susceptible
to pass-interception.    Only in the dying moments of the
game—a thriller that had the crowd on edge for the full sixty
minutes of play—did the 'Birds produce any replica of a
——————————^^—      sustained offensive.
Coach Clem Parberry's pack of
Coyotes maintained the initiative,
a? back after back bulled hi> way
through a crumbling Varalty defence for 50 yards. Varsity again
stiffened, and gained possession of
the ball on their own 21 yard line.
A fumble by the Thunderbird gridders was neutralized when Doug
Reid snagged an incompleted lateral pass, intended for an Idaho end
sweep, on the 11 yard stripe.
The ferocious pace finally produced the first touchdown at the
10-minute mark, when Tom Ox-
man, heady field general for the
College of Idaho aggregation pulled
down a long kick by Nesbit on
his own 35, and aided by a ruthless
exhibition of field blocking, romped along the sidelines for 60-odd
yards to go Into paydirt territory
standing up. The convert was made
good by Dtek Gardner, and Varsity became the underdog to the
tune of « 7-0 margin.
The second quarter saw the grid-
men from Caldwell, Idaho, again
take the offensive, but their attack along the ground proved Impotent before a vicious charging
Thunderbird line.
At this point, the Coyotes decided to score via the aerial route,
and Bobby Kane promptly faded
back and arched a perfect strike
to left half Tom Winbigler who
had a clear field ahead of him to
score. The convert went wide of
the mark, but the Idaho football
squad loped off the gridiron grasping a comfortable 13-0 lead at the
half-time gun.
Minutes later, Reid again fired
a pass of the professional variety
from the Idaho 29 yard stripe, and
amid a tremendous exhibition from
thf crowded stands, Nesbit scampered to his third touchdown of
the seaaon. The fleet back split
the posts cleanly to convert his
score, and Varsity had pulled to
within six points of the faltering
After being subjected to three
consecutive first downs iby the
Blue and Gold who were sizzling
at this point in the game, Big
Glenn Ward took over for the
Coyotemen, and operating out of
the fullback slot he smashed his
way up the field in seven plays
to the Varsity one-yard line. With
but a minute and a half remaining
to play, the bulky back bulled his
way to a touchdown, which was
unconverted, but which altered the
scoreboard reading to a 19-7 count.
As the fans began to leave the
stadium, UBC took to the air, and
with Reid launching the pigskin
successively to Nesbit, Goulobef
and Storey, they chalked up 70
yards. Another pass screamed into
paydirt territory over right end,
and was ruled complete because of
• interference on the play. Given the
leather on the one yard line with
one play to score, the 'Birds didn't
make it.

In Double Win
Campus Ruggermen celegrated

win Saturday as UBC beat Lx
South Burnaby 5-4 and Varsity

UBC travelled to Douglas Park
and got a hevy workout from thc
Burnaby lads but George Biddle
who made the only try of the day,
and converted his own score to
give the students their five point*
First blood was drawn by Burnaby when In the first six minutes they scored a field goal mm

half however the three quarter

a nice past to plunge over the

At Brockton Bowl the mighty

The highlight of the game was
the one man powerhouse in th«,
form of Russ Latham. Scoring was
opened by Latham early In th..
first half when lie plunged across
for the first try. A few minutes
later Latham and McKee made a
beautiful run down the field and
Latham went over again. His convert was good.
The third try was the result of
a concerted serum rush and Kirby
took the ball over the line.
After the Rower's score thc
campus men appeared to turn on
the heat. In the second half a
newcomer to the line-up, Boyd
Crosby, went oVer for three points

Minutes later Latham again
charged across the line, and the

Soccer Elevens
Drop Both Tilts
Victories were non-existent foi
Blue and Gold teams on Homecoming Day. Coupled with the
loss of the American football team
was that of the two student soccer teams, Varsity dropped their
game to Grandview Legion by a
3-1 score while UBC lost their tilt
by the same margin to Vancouver
This year's Varsity team is being tabbed by sideline soccer experts as being definitely in Miss
Fortune's red book. Outplaying
and outgamlng their opponents for
the greater part of the contest, the
team is still in the position of being unable to get goals.
So was the case again last Saturday afternoon when the Vet's
team was soundly beaten on the
field but not on the score sheet.
Gordy Shepherd who replaced
Bill Thomas at the pivot spot at
half time headed in a cross shot
for the student's only tally late
In the game.
Oscar Roells, prominent city
tennis star, secured the legion
first-half hiarker while ln the second half Stan Grazdanlch netted
another on a penalty shot.
Varsity pressed continually during the second half and while the
student defence moved well up
the field in a vain attempt to cui
down the legion lead, the vets
broke awiay for their third counter, Bill Dean being the marksman. Moreton in the Varsity net
played a stellar game as his mates
left him unprotected in their eagerness to overtake the winners.
On the campus before a homecoming audience UBC held a
strong Ranger crew on even terms
until the dying minutes of the
game, when injuries spelled ruin
to their cause. Hugh Ross secured
the only student goal, on a pa&s
from Bobby Moulds.
Murdo McKay and Geoff Biddle
were side-lined before the end of
the game through injuries.

Manager Denis Crockett of the
UBC team appears confident and
says that he has a hustling bunch
of boys. After the way they took
on the fighting Burnaby team last
Saturday, UBC can conceivably
give Varsity a licking.
The Varsity fifteen on the other
hand has the odds with them, as
no team has yet made it across
their line. Although scored upon

is one of the most powerful aggregations ever to be fielded in the

irite Irene Strong to create the
biggest upset of the evening at
the mainland championship swim
meet at the Vancouver Crystal

Miss Worsfold entered the competition only after a last minute
decision, and barely out-timed tho
VASC water nymph who is internationally renowned for her
championship performances. Although attending Varsity this
year, Miss Strong had chosen to
swim for VASC, to which she ha»
belonged for a number of years.

while Bob Marshall was closely

honours in that race,

UBC tangled with North Snore on

On the campus field, UBC had a
stlffer game against the North
Shore. Art Hill, veteran player,
sparked the attack on the visitor's
giound making the score 2-0 ln the
first half. Play evened up in the
hst thirty minutes with one more
point to UBC. On the scoring end
were Norm Tupper, Les Bullen,

the start, it was one mad offensive
