Revision Board
Draws Primary
Constitution Plans
• BROAD outlines have been
reached by the Student Government Revision Board, concerning their plan for the student government constitution.
Codification of these proposals
have yet to be made before the
final decisions are presented to
the general student body for ratification.
Three   significant   motions
were moved unanimously while
Les Raphael withheld his vote
on the fourth.   However, two
weeks ago Friday, the Board
unanimously voted that there
would be no public dissension
among   its   members   which
would thus make a minority
report impossible.
The first motion creates an Undergraduate   Societies   Committee
whose chairman  shall be elected
by the executives of the societies
and shall replace the president of
A Coordinator of Social Activities on Council will head a committee formed of representatives
from LSE, MAA, Women's Activities (WUS) and Undergraduate
Societies Committee. This CSA
will oversee the social calendar,
noon-hour events and all other
social activities. He will be elected at large from fourth year.
To enlarge Students' Council in
the interests of greater representation, second and third year representatives will be placed on Council.   The third year representative
will drop the title of Junior Member.   These   two   additional  councillors will be elected at large,
Election of the President of
LSE formed thc fourth motion.
It was decided  by the Board
members with the exception of
Les Raphael  who didn't vote,
that   LSE   President   shall   be
elected by the LSE committee
consisting of the presidents of
the major and minor clubs.
This outline of student  government was forwarded by Jim Wilson since it was a composite plan
of   the   various   ideas   of   Wilson,
Bruce Yorke and a few others.   It
enlarges Council to eleven voting
members by the inclusion of CSA
and second year representative.
•JOHN HADDAD, a noted American tenor will present a

Army, Bands, Dances, Feature
Gigantic 3 Day Entertainment
*   COMING AS a climax to the oddest publicity campaign
ever to be launched on the university campus is the announcement of the other "First" for UBC.
Stepping up to take its place be
side the Red Cross Ball, the Undergraduate Formal and other events that have become "annual"
on the campus, the Hospital Carnival today broke Its veil of secretive publicity to champion itself
as "Another First for UBC."
Opening on March 19, and
continuing for three fun-pack-
' ed days, the Carnival will set
a new precedent for entertainment magnitude with its many
bands, its dances, Its musical
carnival and its banquet.
Monday, the first day, the Carnival will, get into full swing and
will start to set the stage with the
Carnival "atmosphere" that will
be necessary for the other days.
This day has been entitled "Program Day," and Is exactly what lt
says it will be. The day will be
turned over completely to the selling of a 16 page program that has
been designed in three bright Carnival colors, and was planned as
a fitting souvenir of such a big
It is hoped that a large part of
the Mamook Hospital Fund will
be raised by the sale of these programs, which will sell at fifty
cents each and to make the
bargain better, the programs will
admit students to one of the other
events. Thi number printed on
the back is tiie owner's lucky
number in the Carnival Raffle.
Tuesday promises to be the kind
of a day students will long remember, for two great attractions will
be presented.
At noon, a new Innovation in
noon-hour  entertainment  will
be given Its premiere In the
Auditorium.   This will be the
long-awaited  COTC  presentation, THE ARMY SHOW.
Starring a cast of 60, and an orchestra of 15, the army will make
its debut on the concert stage in
a fast-paced "racy" modern musical-comedy.
Some of the highlights of the
show are: its amazing ski-jump;
the Four-Barrelled Boogie; and a
novelty on "unmentionables."
Carnival charged admission price
to the show ls twenty-five cents
per head.
A free TEA DANCE is planned
for Tuesday afternoon In the
Brook Hall. It is free, that is, to
those students who have bought
and present their programs. RAFFLE DRAWING will also be held
at this function.
Added entertainment at the Tea
Dance, besides the name orchestra,
will be the presence of two FORTUNE TELLERS, who will foretell the future to exam-worried
students for just one dime—all
proceeds of course will go to the
Carnival Fund.
Final functions of the Carnival
will be held Wednesday.
At 6:30 p.m. a large BANQUET
will be held ln the maw lounge of
the Brock Hall.
This affair, which has been
sponsored mostly for the en
tertainment of the boys tt the
nearby hospital, is not open to
students. Admission will be by
Invitation    only   and   then
only if the invited pays fl. tt
promises, nevertheless, to be
quite  the  thing, with man/
faculty members and very good
guest speakers In attendance.
Wednesday night, at titt pm,
the old Brock Hall will see the
Carnival brought to a fitting and
a very grand climax.
This wiU be the FINAL DANCE.
After students have paid their
admission price of 75 cents, (atod
this is strictly Dutch), they will
be able to dance themselves to
death to the music of TWO ORCHESTRAS.
One of the orchestras is mekinf
its first appearance on the campus,
It is composed of mostly youths
and was chosen by the committee,
after doing some auditioning, U
the young orchestra that wag meet
likely to succeed.
The second band, well, that's
a surprise, but lt promises to
be one of Vancouver's beet-
liked ones.
A fortune teller will also
her appearance at the Final
(not one of those at .the tea-
dance) f so it will be possible to
check up on the first ftirtjMtyt
ling job to see If H was okay.
Proceeds from all events are fo-
ing into what is known as thf
"Mamook Hospital Fund." This
fund is being raised] so as to tup- '
ply subscriptions to all the latest
magazines, book-of-the-month, and
literary guild selections, games,
and other recreational facilities
that are needed ln a military hospital.
The fund is for the purpose of
supplying these things to the boys
at the Vancouver Military Hhoe-
pital, Point Grey Annex, which la
so close to the UBC campus.
Members of the Carnival Committee are: Vivian Golos and Bob
Armstrong, joint chairmen; Francis Hillier, secretary; Ron Grantham, Mamooks president; Catherine Anderson, Aro Aho, Geoffrey Fawcus, program layout and
art; Ernie Hill, advertising sales]
Mary Lou Jeffries, decorations;
Tom Smith, Army Shew.

. . . THE UBYSSEY . . .
MARCH S, 1945
The Editors Retire
In tune with the quickening pulse of
scholastic life at UBC, the Ubyssey editors
and staff are Returning to their studies, except on Wednesday when they will put out
one paper a week.
We would like to write a long discourse
on the somewhat dreary aspects of university
life in the latter days of March and middle
April, but good taste and several unwritten
essays prevent us.
We feel disposed, however, to remark
on some aspects of the past year that will
live forever in the minds of some students,
and will be perpetuated in the files of the
Ubyssey for others.
The first .is the great hullabaloo and
accompanying thought on plans for revision
of student government. At this late date it
appears that most of the students have almost completely forgotten the issues involved and the merits of the plans advanced.
Another "First"
"First" for the University of British
Columbia and definitely a "first" for Mam-
ooka, is the gala three-day Hospital Fund
Carnival announced in today's Ubyssey.
Proceeds of the drive, which will commence
March 19, and will set, as Mamooks promise,
"a new precedent for entertainment magnitude" will be directed into a fund for magazine subscriptions and recreational facilities.
The drive has been well planned and
the cause is highly commendable; Canadian universities might well follow the example of UBC and a trans-Canada hospital
fund drive sponsored by Canadian universities should be a regular annual event.
. Although carnival gaiety will be dimmed somewhat by soon-to-be-posted April
examination schedules, UBC students, many
former comrades-in-arms of the boys in the
Those who keep the torch alive have
succeeded in part in bringing discussion
down to a real and sane level. Whatever
revision is made, if any, we hope students
will take time to think before acting, and
not push it through between scholastic bouts
in a library stack.
Second in general importance was the
increasing good will between the student
body and the administration. Relations between faculty and student often are a test
of a sound and mature university, and in
this respect UBC is fortunate in having both
a wise and mature student government and
an understanding faculty.
There are many more events worthy of
memory, but as we said liefore, several unwritten essays and the irrestible lure of the
grey stone building with tiie fringes on the
top prevent their being discussed.      —D.B.
military hospitals, will have a chance to tear
themselves away from their books and relax
for a while in order to supply these returned men with lighter reading.
Military hospital officials claim that subscriptions to new magazines, and new game
equipment, are an urgent need. Drives for
second hand games and magazines have been
held in the past, but such contributions as
incomplete drat games, six-year old magazines, and such books as "Mrs. Wiggs of the
Cabbage Patch" and "Journal of Medical
Science" have been predominant. Therefore
UBC students would be well-advised to take
upon their collective shoulders, the task of
supplying veterans with time fillers.
Mamooks have candy-coated the money
extraction process, the cause is excellent,
and now its up to UBC. —M.D.
Ottawa calling
. by Neil MacDonald
• THERE la definitely a feeling
of tension around the Capital,
a feeling which is probably more
apparent -after a short absence
from the city.
The date of the next election Is
uppermost in everyone's mind.
When are wev going to get It over with and get back to normal is
the form the question moat often
Actually, the present government Is nervous about calling an
election while the war is on, and
yet It is going to be difficult to
find a good reason to postpone the
election until after hostilities In
Europe cease. If the war Is over,
the government may hope that the
public feeling on the question of
conscription will not run so high
and that it may have a chance of
re-election on the basis of developing a strong peace and post-war
Such thinking, however, neglects the consideration of the sol
dier vote, which will be a much
greater factor in the immediate
period after the war than It Is at
present. It Is difficult for members of the armed forces to speak
with a united voice under battle
conditions, but let them be out of
the battle area, perhaps in the
process of being discharged, and
they will begin to think more intensely of the post-war government. And If they have been exposed to some of the abuses which
are apparently common in the
discharge rehabilitation set-up,
their vote will not go for the government.
No one can predict at the
moment, on valid grounds, the
results of the next election because no one knows yet when
it will take place or what will
be the issues. Two or three
weeks before the election will
be tune enough to make predictions.
Travelling across two-thirds of
Canada, however, does give one a
definite impression of the temper
of the people, and lt would not
seem that that temper is very
sympathetic to the present government. For every person who appeared willing to support ihe
government wholeheartedly at this
point, ten seemed diametrically
opposed to it and twenty were Inclined 'to give their support elsewhere, although their minds were
not made up as yet.
When the campaign really starts,
we may expect one of the hottest
fights ln the history of Canada.
No party has yet revealed Its secret weapons, and surprises will
come from all sides.
But, ln an all-out fight, the odds
go to the attacker, and the government will be forced into a defensive attitude towards Its war
record. The advantage definitely
will be against the party seeking

•   A YEAR AGO LAW Joyce Bremner, RCAF (WD), was
moulding the future of returning airmen at the Service
Flying Training School,  Claresholm, Alberta, by guiding
them into the proper educational channels provided for Canadian servicemen.
This week UBC freshette Joyce
Bremner was forced to stay 15
minutes after her compulsory tap-
dancing class in order to learn the
correct method of kicking one's
foot three times one way, three
times the other way, and then
seven times in front.
After nearly a complete term
at  UBC  this  pert,  attractive
veteran - at - twenty   considers
life at university "wonderful".
When a medical discharge last
June  terminated  her  more  than
18 months service in the Air Force,
Joyce took advantage of the educational opportunities she had rec-
commended to others.

•   LECTURES   UKE   the   well
known one third of a nation
are always with us. We all attend at least a minimum of them
and we all complain about them
but nobody ever does anything
about them.
Compulsory attendance at seven*
eighths of term lectures still remains to haunt us. Proponents of
the compulsory attendance plan
that students can't be trusted to
attend lectures unless this regulation is enforced. ,
Yet every student knows that
ln some lectures where the attendance is not taken the lecture
room is always packed and the
students pay close attention to the
lecturer. In fact at UBC students
have been known to sit In the
aisles to listen to a good lecture.
We also know the lectures where
attendance Is compulsory and a
group of bored students sit staring
wearily out of windows or writing overdue essays. As far as the
lecture Is concerned the hour ls
a dead loss.
If the compulsory attendance
regulations were removed and
students stayed away from certain
of the less inspiring lectures In
large droves wouldn't the professor be likely to take stock of himself and do something to improve
the quality of his lectures?
Tills In addition to Improving
the quality of the lectures should
improve Uie general efficiency of
the student body as a whole Insofar as lectures are ooncerned. The
students who couldn't assume the
responsibility of keeping up with
their work without constant prodding would be weeded out at exam  time.
And this brings up another
question. Why cant a person
who has the ambition to cover all
the work In a course write the
university examination in that
course even although he is not
registered at the university? Many great men have received their
education in this manner In other
parts of the world and at UBC
we have the example of a returned
man who having missed the term
lectures was given special permission to write the Christmas
exams. He put the other students
to shame. Why can't this privilege be extended to other throughout the province?
Dear Ed:
Ha, Ha, I fooled 'em! All year
I've been waiting for this. And
now it's really happened.
for six months, three times a
week, I've stood in the Quad at
noon and heard nothing but,
"when are the Ubysseys coming?"
and "will they be here soon?",
but on Tuesday I laughed out of
the other side of my face. Gleefully, I watched from the protective walls of the Arts building
while milling crowds of students
fought their way up to the Quad
box office, One persistent fellow
in a COTC uniform was thrown
back again and again, but finally
he made it too. It must be that
Army training that did lt!
Like   starving  people,   the  students fought over a few shreds of
paper.    The   Health   Department
rushed   a  stretcher  down   to  the
scene of battle,  but it didn't  do
any good.  Only a hearse was needed.    The   climax   to   my   career
came when the victorious students
found that their hard-won Ubysseys were Saturday's issue.   Now
that   there   is   only   one   issue   a
week,   the   Thursday   one,  i  can
rest in peace.  Ha, Has

Fees for these courses have been

• FOR THE FOURTH time in the history of UBC, the
Thunderbird basketball team is eligible for the Canadian
Championships. The other three years were 1931, 1937 and
1941, and in all three of those years the Thunderbirds went
on to take the Dominion Title.
The 'Birds could probably do it again this year, and
they're Just itching to play, but a declaration from the Men's
Athletic Directorate prevents any team from competing in
athletic contests during April because of the sessional examinations.
Another top flight team from the East, Assumption College of Windsor, finds itself in the same predicament all
because of the shortsightedness of Canadian Basketball
Casaba Situation It Grim
On conclusion of the 1941 series, Coach Van Vliet decided to take steps because of the late dates of the Dominion
playoffs, if the Thunderbirds ever became eligible again.
In the AMS files there is a letter from the Canadian
Basketball body which states that the executive would reorganize the National Championships' so that college teams
would be able to compete well before their exams.
However, the CABA has done nothing about it, and
now that they are not going to make any playoff profits out
of the Thunderbirds, they are trying to push through an
invitational tournament.
Stage Mock-Title Tournament
This invitational meet will attract none other than two
of the losers in the City Championships, besides a couple of
unregistered teams from Vancouver Island,—-they hope.
I refer to Lauries and Higbies, and as for the Island
teams, I doubt whether they have names.
The whole setup is a mess. The hoop moguls are deceiving the public into believing that the Thunderbirds aren't
B.C. Champs, but since there are only two registered Senior
•A teams in the Province, Varsity and Lauries, and since the
Blue and Gold has beaten the Pie-Rates, they are automatically City and Provincial Champions.
The Casaba mentors only hope to make a little more
"scratch" by staging the invitational tourney so that they
will have some kind of a champion to represent B.C. in the
National playdowns.
College Crews Will Be Tops
But there'll be little more scratch for the mentors when
they stage the so-called Canadian finals in Vancouver. While
the Thunderbirds, recognized in Western hoop circles as the
logical contenders for the Dominion Cup, and the Assumption
College crew, who look like the top team in the East this
year, are forced to forget about the playoffs, the hoop moguls
hope to prop up a couple of mock-champions for a title series.
In the United States, basketball is the top spectator sport
of the nation, and their playoffs are run with clockwork
smoothness. College and University teams are the top teams
of the country and it will soon be the same here.
In Canada, basketball has the players and it has the
teas, but it will never gain prominence as it has in the States
unless tiie Dominion basketball executive makes some radical
changes in the very neai future.	
A meeting ot the Women's Rifle
Club will be held ln Arts 101 today. It is important that everyone
be there.

• VARSITY Thunderbirds ' remained unbeaten and untied
as they finished off the English
Rugby season by trouncing the
second place Vancouver Reps, 17
to 6, at Varsity Stadium on Saturday. In the preliminary tussle,
Varsity Intermediates took the
measure of Victoria College by a
4-3 score.
The feature attraction started off
very slowly with most of the play
taking place in the middle of the
field. Varsity showed a slight
edge In the first twenty minutes
but, while defending their own area, they committed a blunder and
Dave Menzies put the Reps ahead
with a well-aimed penalty boot.
Just   before   the   half   ended,
Johnny Hicks scored after the ball
had been carried 75 yards down
the field with all but four or five
of the Students handling the ball.
To   open   the   second   half,
Keith MacDonald followed up
his own klckoft and tallied before the bewildered Reps knew
what   the   score   was.   Harry
Kabush converted to make the
scoreboard read 8-6 in favor of
the Blue and Gold.
From this point on, there was no
stopping the mighty Thunderbirds.
They kept rolling down the field
and into Vancouver's territory
with monotonous regularity and
only the last-line defence of the
Reps prevented Varsity's lead from
stretching to forty or even fifty
Tom McCusker started fhe scoring parade off and Jack Armour
followed with two spectacular
tries. Jack, playing only his
fourth game for the Blue and
Gold, showed tremendous drive
and surprised a crowd of about
400 when he bulled his way past
Art Hicks, one of the most reliable tacklers In the Province.
None of these scores were converted thus leaving the final score
at 17-6.
The stars for the Blue and
Gold were Maury Moyls for
his great work in setting up
the plays for all but one of
Varsity's tries, Jack Armour
for his two beautiful tries and
many other fine runs, and Cam
Coady for his great work in
the scrum.
Cam, playing at wing forward,
travelled at top speed throughout
the battle, being on top of the
Vancouver scrum half nearly every time the Reps' scrum got the
ball out.
The first game turned out to be
a   terrific   struggle   with   neither
team able to do much against the
Don Barton, playing for UBC
and not Victoria as the downtown
sports scribes seem to think,

back to score a try but the convert just i.ussed to leave the UBC

The Inst major championship
ef the season, the Roundsfel
Cup, will be decided on Saturday in the University Stadium
when Varsity, winners of the
Miller and Tisdall trophies, oppose Victoria Naval College.
Varsity has not been beaten in
ten games this season while copping the two aforementioned!
championships. However, they
have been tied three times.
It is expected that their injured
stars will be back in the lineup
for the all-important struggle. Joe
Pegues and Jack McKercher have
been out of action since the winning of the McKechnie Cup but
have been getting back into shape
this week and they are almost
sure to be starting on Saturday.

e   VARSITY'S SOCCER XI played a brilliant game at Nanaimo with
the strong Nanaimo club a week ago, breaking even with a 5-5 tie,
and then proceeded to illustrate their improved co-ordination ability by
shutting out Pro-Rec 3-0 at Callister Park Saturday.
Herb Smith's smart handling of the leather at goal and the cooperative play on the field by the Varsity team, although they lost the
services of Earl Woods who played* left wing, combined to give Varsity
a well-deserved win.
Pat Campbell opened Ore for Varsity, ringing up the first
tally by punting a shot to the left corner of the uprights.  Varsity
remained ahead at the half-way mark with a 1-0 margin.
Showing increasing skill and initiative in field play, Varsity opened
the second half with a burst of power, Dave Brenner driving home a
goal that boosted the score to 2-0.
Varsity's Anal tally came after Pro-Rec's left charged Varsity's ace right winger Don Yip. The penalty kick was taken by
Don Petrie who let loose with a beautiful shot which evaded the
Pro-Rec goalie.
This week's feature soccer bout should prove to be a most interesting
exhibition as the Varsity XI returns to Callister to play the colorful
East Indian squad-on Saturday. Attraction is heightened by the fact that
both teams are tied in the league.
Frosh Drop Close
Battle to Seniors

contested match 4-1 from the
Freshette eleven Saturday on the
home field.
Although the score indicates an
easy win, the seniors had a tough
fight on their hands. B"ut Lady
Luck seemed to smile everywhere
but on the hapless Frosh eleven
that day. Twice in the last few
hectic seconds the ball bounced
off the goal posts and a third time
missed the goal by Inches when
the over-eager Frosh team missed
During the first half, the
Freshettes held most of the
play, but Audrey Thomson
managed to score one of her
two points on a breakaway. At
the beginning of the second
half, Irene Berto, Lorna Lang,
and Audrey Thomson again
find the range to mount their
total to four.
The Freshettes's only score resulted from a beautiful passing
play between Jean MacKinnon and
Jackie Shearman who finally succeeded in outwitting the wily Senior goal-keeper, Helen Matheson.

e SETS RECORD — Thunderbird
sharpshooter, Sandy Robertson,*
won the praise of the hoop fans
at Saturday night's flnal basketball
battle when he set a new mark
for Varsity cagers. Sandy tossed
the melon through the hemp for a
total of 27 points.
Finish Season With 65-41 Victory
As Robertson Sets Scoring Record
• THUNDERBIRD HOOPERS swarmed all over a hapless
band of Pie-Rates at Varsity Gym Saturday night to
swoop up the Vancouver and the British Columbia Basketball Championships by trouncing Lauries Pie-Rates for the
third straight game by a score of 65 to 41.
Sandy Robertson, top scorer of the season, came to the
fore for the Blue and Gold champs as he swished the baskets
for 27 markers, a record for the year, and a new mark for
Thunderbird cagers.
Gordy Sykes, who was bounced
from UBC at Christmas, set the
former Thunderbird record at 28
points a year ago when the Varsity crew defeated Western Wash-
inton State Teachers' College.
Herb Capozzi, valuable pivotman of the UBC Chiefs, tied the
record in his last game of this
season when Higbies edged the
Tribe in the fifth and final game
of the Inter A playoffs.
Although the Blue and Gold
quintet walked off with Saturday's   tilt   with   a   24-point
margin, they didn't get started
until  the «ccond  half.   As a
matter of fact the i'lrnte crew
were on the top end of a 24-20
count at the breather.
Ihe battle was all tied up at
10-all after the first quarter, and
Lauries took a four-point margin
in the second canto as Bill Anderson hit the hoop for 12 of Lauries'
14 counters.
But It was a Thunderbird victory all the way, after Van Vliet's
Vitamin Kids started to roll  in
the   third   period.    Ole   Bakken
netted two quick baskets and a
pair of free throws to give Varsity the lead which tney quickly
multiplied for a thorough drub-
drubbing of the Hallman.
The college quintet pounded
their basket tor 24 tallies while
holding Lauries to nine In Oj»
third stanza, then went on to
solidify their/one-sided triumph
with a 21-8 count ln ihe final
quarter, for a Anal score of
65 to 41.
Hoop enthusiasts forgot all about
the score In the final minutes of
the contest when they found that
Sandy Robertson was closing in on
a new scoring record.
Bud McLeod, who was playing
his last game for a Thunderbird
team, went onto the floor for the
last few minutes with the Intention of doing all the shooting, but
he was the man who passed the
melon to Sandy for the basket that
shattered the record. '
The Thunderbirds finished off
their season in championship style
and although the MAD has restricted them from participation
in the Canadian Basketball Championships, future generations will
look back on this year's crew as
potential Dominion Champions.
