LPP Club Returns To UBC Campus
—Ubyssey Photo by John Robertson
BOOZE AND BOOKS may be mixed by UBC students
when the new liquor bill is passed. Students are already
wondering whether any cocktail bars or taverns will open
shop near the campus—if liquor outlets do appear, collegiates will be only five minutes from a glass of "tall and
Inebriation On Campus
May Present Problem
The proposed new liquor law throws up an intriguing question for UBC students—will they be able to dash out for a
"quick one" between classes?  • : "    ~~
A cocktail bar or tavern on;
the campus is of course improb- j
^ble. |
' But the firm "dry" attitude
of UBC's senate won't necessarily bar liquor by the glass—
glass after glass after glass-
outside   thc  university  gates.
Already, a rumour has appeared claiming that a Marine
Drive lea room will seek a
liquor license if tiie new liquor
bill  is  passed.
But the rumour was immediately squashed when the management of thc cafe in question
— The Dolphins — announced
flatly they had no such intention.
What's more, they added,
such a move would be impossible, because the cafe is on
Park property, and hen6c is unavailable as a liquor outlet.
Which leaves Tenth Avenue as
the remaining —although quite]
satisfactory — hope  of student
It is quite possible that Tenth
could become an Avenue of
glittering cocktail lounges and
saloons, bearing such titles as
"The Thirsty Thunderbird" and
"Dean's Dungeon."
Students could tipple as Ihey
studied —• a five-minute drive,
and they would be drinking
Scotch on the Rocks while reading College Survey.
Other universities have been
faced with the problem of drunk
ridden classes, and UBC may
well  be  next.

The student handbook is outselling Kinsey's Sexual Behaviour of the American Female.
Twenty-two of the

during the first hour of sales
Wednesday, and 2150 had been
bought by 3 p.m. Thursday.
Only 850 are left, and they'll
go on the block today. Todav's
sales will determine whether it
will be necessary to print more
than the 3000 already in stock.
Students have apparently
realized they can't telephone
that distracting bundle of sex
who sits beside him in Psychology if they don't know her old
man's initials. But her number
is in thc book.
Frosh Beauty
Reigns Tonite
Tonight's Frosh Frolic was
the major item discussed at
Tuesday noon's meeting of the
Frosh Undergraduate Society.
Thc big social event for Frosh
will be held in the Women's
Gym, and will feature the
crowning of the "Frosh Princess."
Four candidates for the title
were picked at Tuesday's meet-
ir,;,'. They are: Juliet Crimson,
l.orna Jones, Dearie McLclan,
and Liny Pountney. Besides
r< igning at tonhvht's dance, the
"Princess" will also stand as

Still Goes
For Frosh
Renunciation of a general "no
Lilypond" policy for the Applied Science undergraduate
society was made by its president, Dave Dufton, at a general
meeting Wednesday.
"Many people seem to think
this is a 'no Lilypond' executive," said Dufton as he opened
a discussibn of frosh hazing.
"We were 'no Lilypond' for one
week — that doesn't mean we
will always be."
Dufton was referring to the
week of frosh orientation during
which the applied science students ignored their traditional
policy and did not dunk frosh
in the Lilypond.
Discussion of hazing was demanded by a unanimous vote of
applied science students at a
general meeting, Oct. 1. At this
time, The Ubyssey forecast that
a split in the society would develop if thc executive adopted
a general "no Lilypond" pacificism.
Dufton's repudiation prevented any development of the split
by limiting all further discussion to future frosh orientation.
No direct criticism of executive
Dolicy was made.
A decision will be made nt
the spring tnetHmg of the society
regarding hazing. Some speakers from the floor favored re-
adoption of Lilypond for frosh.
Publicizer of the "no Lilypond" policy and main target of
applied science dissatisfaction,
Monte McKay, wearing a blue
sweater, sat quietly at the back
hall  during   the  discus-

475 Pictures
Of Artsmen
Still Needed
Graduating artsmen have only
until 4 p.m. today to have their
pictures taken on campus.
Photographers at Campbell
Studio's Brock Hall booty booth
announced Thursday at noon
that only 125 students had
showed up to have their pictures
taken, out of the approximate
600 registered.
And the seniors haVe already
paid for the cost of the photos
—it was included in the fee
paid by them during registration.
Students who fail to have
their pictures taken loday can
have them taken at Campbell's
downtown studio. 581 Granville.
Deadline for this arrangement
is October 31, to allow the pic-
ures to appear in the Totem.
Mixed Up
Poor Marks
Not Caused
By Clubbing
Participation in extra-curricular activities is not a major
cause of student failures, according to John McLean, director of
UBC's Personnel Services.
In an interview with The
Ubyssey Thursday, McLean said:
"Faulty motivations and poor
study habits are the two major
causes of student failures, not
lack of ability or a heavy load
of extra-curricular activities.
Most students who do poorly in
exminations don't participate in
any extra-curricular activities.''
These preliminary findings
came as a result of an intensive
study of failures now being conducted at UBC. The counselling department is preparing a
comprehensive five-year survey
of thc problem. Study has been
going on for two years, but final
results will not be available until 1956.
Last year 22.2% of the freshman class failed, that is, did not j
pas;-; the minimum requirement
of nine units. 53.37- of the first
year enrollment failed in one
or more courses at the spring
examinations. In senior years
the percentage of failures is
much less, ranging between 5
and 15%.
Preliminary    statistics    show
that there are significantly fewer failures among students who

Twenty-one-year-old Archie
McGugan, a defeated Labor
Progressive Party candidate in
the provincial elections, presented the proposed constitution
to the Literary and Scientific
Executive Thursday.
The constitution, which is
identical to that of the National

campus clubs Tuesday for their
LSE president Johann Stoyva,

in the proposed communist constitution because it differs from
those of the Liberal, Conservative, Social Credit and CCF
clubs on the campus.
He said it is LSE policy to put
all political clubs on an "equal
However, he said, any possible
changes would be left up to the
four other groups to suggest.

By the slim majority of three
votes, the resolution to have
peacetinr|e conscription in Canada was defeated Thursday in
a forum debate attended by
close to 100 UBC students.
It was resolved that "Canada
should have UMT during peacetime." Debaters for the affirmative were John Fraser and
John Loewen. Their opposition
was John Redekop and Roy
In opening the debate for the
affirmative, Fraser stressed the
fact that Canada should always
have a sufficient number of
trained men available for instant action in the event of aggression. "Disarmament will
never stop wars and the only
way Canada can be prepared
for an emergency is through a
UMT program," said Fraser.
To back up his statements, Fraser used World Wars 1 and 2,
as well as the Korean conflict,
as examples of allied unprepar-
Speaking for the negative,
Redekop said, "Other countries
can supply the armies and Canada the manufactured supplies
in the NATO." To add to this,
Redekop said, that a large army
is unnecessary since any future
wars will be "short, furious and
deadly," because of new atomic
Completing the argument for
the affirmative, Loewen pointed
out that conscription is insurance and Canadians should not
be'lulled into a false sense of
security, she should be prepared
to contribute a force of very
well trained men.
Trimble expressed the opinion
that if Canada put 350,000 men
in training it would cost the taxpayers eight billion dollars per
To complete his argument,
Trimble told of his fear for the
prestige of those young men
who might be corrupted by exposure to army life or association with Cadet Corps which he
called the Canadian prototype
of Hitler Youth.

Student Peace Movement, led
by Malcolm MacDonald, is the
other left-wing group.    It was
re-formed earlier this term.
"The formation of the LLP

McGugan said he knew of
"several" people who would
join the campus LPP once it is
officially sanctioned.
After the four political groups
finish discussing    the    constitution  Stoyva   will   present   it   to
student council for acceptance.
McGugan, who was president
of the Victoria branch of National Federation of Labor Youth,
a communist youth group, has
been active in politics since he
moved to Victoria from ' Scotland six years ago.
He was defeated as a communist candidate in Victoria Centre
riding June 9.
He said he plans to bring to
the campus as speakers all national LPP leaders who come
lo the coast, and hopes to organize "study groups" here for
students interested in the LPP
Other campus politicians indicated the LPP club would be
welcomed. "Democracy is strong
enough not to lie swept away

anything UBC freshmen were
subjected to.
At McMaster University, Hamilton, Ont., freshmen had to
climb a greasy pole to retrieve
a hat, while upperclassmen
pelted them with rotten tomatoes.
At Lennoxville, Quebec, new I
students at Bishop's University i
were    conducted    through    an j
"Initiation Agony"    which    in-1
eluded    scrubbing    stairs    with i
toothbrushes    and    picking  up
mounds of confetti a piece at a
time.     One   freshette  was  seen
wandering  about    the    campus
wearing  a  dressing   gown,  and
with her hair in pin-curls.
Walla, Wash., thc upperclassmen suffered substantially themselves. ;
In the annual freshmen-sophomore tug-of-war along the bank
of a muddy pond the newcomers
dunked thc upperclassmen. j
But sophomores retaliated by
tossing freshmen and near-by
freshettes into the slimy waters.
Soon everyone was splashing
around in the water. j
At University of Toronto, the
campus newspaper reported that
Victoria College freshetttes
were seen running around the
streets early one morning clad
only  in  pyjamas.
"It  was  thought  to  be   their

Birds Meet CPS
At Tacoma Today
UBC Thunderbirds will line up against College of Puget
Sound Loggers %t 2 p.m. today, in Tacoma, in an effort to grab
their first Evergreen Conference win of the season.
The Loggers are one of the>
highest rated teams in the con
ference and since losing 28-7 to
Whltworth Pirates last Saturday
are favored to finish second to
the Spokane squad.
'Bird coaches Coryell and
Mitchell have not given up'hnpes
of winning, despite sport-writers
predictions, and have put their
squad through some rugged practice sessions this week to toughen
them up for today's gridiron tilt.
Coryell's main problem is the
quarterback slot. Of his three
signal-callers, Flemons and Kronquist are still suffering from
minor injuries receivad ir. thc
game against Central. «towart

Jim Boulding, who received a
severe charley horse ln last
week's game, has been taking
heat and therapy treatments all
week and is in pretty good
shape. End Charlie James and
centre Ralph Martinson wjll both
be playing with their shoulders
taped up.
Although the Tacoma squad
h*s an average 213 pound '.me it
is not noted for "hargins into
the opposition's backfield, which
will suit UBC's passing plays
very well.
Rated as 4-1 underdogs, the
blue and gold may surprise the
fans with a win if they play as
hard and tough as they did

Varsity XI Meets Collies

Still  raring  to go  after last?-

the team plans to continue their
complete mastery over the Collies. Last year Varsity downed
the Athletics three straight
times which culminated in their
losing the championship.

Crewmen Set
For College
Racing Meets
. Taking on the highest calibre
competition of any UBC team,
the Thunderbird Rowing squad
will travel to Corvallis, Ore., to
make their debut against the
highly rated Oregon State crew
next month.
Under the capable direction
of coach Frank Reid and crew
captain Glen Smith the oarsmen
have been training since mid-
September for the coming event.
Two teams, varsity and jayvee,
will make the trip seeking their
first wins of the season,
The Varsity eight this year is
a fully experienced crew having
raced against and beaten some
of tiie best American crews.
They also came a close second
at the 1952 Canadian Olympic
game trial held in St. Catherines,   Ont.
The crews have the busiest
and toughest schedule in recent
years. Following the Oregon
meet tiie orsmen will eompete
with University of Washington,
USC, UCLA, California and
Stanford   crews.
All these meets are all conditioning events however, as the
Varsity prepares a bid to represent Canada in Ihe British Empire GameB next  spring.
Problems  Face
Mentor  Pomfret
Whoever said "'Pity the poor
coach,'' couldn't have had Jack
Pomfret, the Thunderbird's
chief basketball mentor in
Jack's biggest problem right
now is to pick a team out of the
seventy best prospects l!iat have
aver turned out for basketball
at UBC.
Adding 4* Jack's hcvdache is ]
the problem of choosing a center
from   the   four   best   hook-shot
artists in these parts.
Included in thi3 crop are ex-
Clover Leaf center Geof •raig,
George Catherall, last year's
top scorer in the Senior A loop
and returning 'Bird centers Ernie Nyhaug and Jim Carter.
The fun really began when
half the seventy hopefuls proclaimed themselvoj guards. Ii is
doubtful if any of them are good
enough to replace Upson and Zaharko but Herb Forward, and
Gary Taylor from last year's
'Birds, Bob Ramsay and Lome
Barnes from Burnaby South,
Rich Abbot from Duke3 and
Stew Madill from the J.V.'s will
keep them on their toes.
Next practise is Monday at
3.30 in the gym.
Students may have the opportunity to rent Korrisdalo
Arena Monday nights of the winter season, it was announced at council meeting Tuesday.
The offer, made by the Arena company, extends lo a
to'al of 16 Monday nights at a rental of $100 per night.
Eight of the nights would be taken by the athletic department of the AMS lor such functions as intra-murals,
leaving eight others open for skating or hockey by any other
campus groups.
Player Lack Causes
Redskin XV To Fold
The UBC Chiefs will make their second attempt for a win
in the first division of the Vancouver Union on Saturday when
they meet the undefeated Merloma fifteen on the Connaught
Patk pitch at 2 p.m.
The second division Braves,
who handily won their opening
contest last week, will face Ex-
Tech at 2:00 on the campus field;
while the Tomahawks and Vindex will play at Balaclava Park.
9p tp tp
The Redskins are now corrl-
pletely folded, after hiving defaulted their first game. H >w-
ever, if sufficient interest—in the
form of players—is shown at
nf xt week's practices the team
will be reformed.
fp *& wp
The line-up for the Chiefs is
notable in that several of last
year's Thunderbirds will be sitting on the sidelines this waclr.
At least three of last season',5
championship squad have yet to
gel in condition so Albert is replacing them with new—and better conditioned—talent.
Stu Cline (fullback), John
Newton (wing), Bill Whyte
(standoff), and Donn Spence
(scrum half) are the only returnees in the backfield. Victoria
sprinter Bob Hutchison will be
the other wing, while Bob Mor-
ley' and Skip McCarthy w 11 be
the centres.
UBC Braves will meet Ex-Kits
in an exhibition game at 2 p.m.
