Legion Disbands
Employment Staff
FOLLOWING a decision made by
the executive of UBC Branch 72,
Canadian Legion, the Employment
Committee of that branch was
disbanded yesterday.
Organized last Octoner to investigate and suggest a solution
for the problem ot psri-timp,
summer, and graduate employment for student veterans, this
committee contacted other universities as well as various government agencies. At Christmas
it assisted Miss Helen Duncan,
Director of the AMS Employment
Bureau and her staff in the registration of students for work in
the post office.
PERMANENT BUREAU
In December a resolution waa
brought before the general meeting of the Legion requesting that
ths Board of Governors consider
tht establishment of an Employment Bureau, with permanent
staff, under university administration, to handle all phases of the
employment problem. This resolution, together with a proposed
set-up of tha Bureau, was submitted to the January meeting of
tha Board of Governors, and was
approved.
DROCK OFFICE
The Legion Employment Committee, together with the Undergraduate Societies Employment
Bureau then opened an office in
the Brock Hall to commence registration of students for sumnwi
employment, ln charge was Ray
Dewar, with Helen Duncan in
charge of the Women's Division,
and Gordon Thomas in charge of
the Men's Division. During its
peak of operation the committee
employed forty volunteer workers who assisted in laying the
groundwork for the placement of
many students in summer jobs.
With the appointment of Major
J. M. McLean as head of the new
Employment Bureau, and the establishment of an office in the Armory, the files which had been
built up wewre gradually turned
over to him, and the volunteer
workers turned to the more immediate problem of April exams.

Brock Hall May Be
Opened Saturdays
STUDENT COUNCIL HAS requested the Administration to
keep Brock Hall open Saturday
afternoons up to five o'clock.
At present, the building closes,
a i noon unless some part of it has
been booked for a special meeting.
Council's request to Mr. John
Lee, superintendent of buildings,
points out that organizations such
a.; the Mamooks, Radio Society,
and Publications Board, have essential work to do in Brock Hall
offices on Saturday afternoons.
It also suggests that the main
lounge and snack bar should be
available for students staying al
the university to attend football
gt.mes or other functions.
Football Dance
Saturday Night
FIRST FOOTBALL dance will
bt held in Brock Hall Saturday
night from 8:30 to 12 p.m.
Tickets are $1 per couple and
will be sold at the door, proceeds
going to the gym fund.
The dance is sponsored by Phrateres, who will arrange dates for
the  visiting team.
The Varsity band, led by Frank
Nightingale. will provide the
music.
FIRST GENERAL MEETING of the Alma Mater Society
will be held next Tuesday noon in the Stadium.
Starting time is scheduled for 11:40, and the Administration has been asked by Student Council to have all 11:30 lectures and labs, cancelled for the occasion.
The agenda for the meeting as
released yesterday by Ted Kirkpatrick, president of the AMS,
listed four main items of business:
1. Auditors' report for the
li!4.r)-46 financial year;
2. Outline of Council policy for
the year;
3. Setting up of a standing Constitutional Revision Committee, to
be composed of non-Council members;
4. A motion authorizing transfer
of the three dollar* of the AMS
fee which is now used to retire
Brcck Hall bonds to be used in
stead as a yearly contribution towards thc Memorial Gym fund.
ISSUE RETIRED
The fourth item on the agenda,
according to Council officials, re-
• "   suits from the fact that the Brock
Hall bond issue will soon be completely  retired.
Meeting place for the gathering,
which in past years has been held
in the Auditorium, has been changed to the Stadium this fait to accomodate the record crowd expected to attend.
ALL MEMBERS
Because every registered student
is automatically a member of the
Alma Mater Society, there is a
possible attendance of 8500.
As Tuesday's meeting will be
one of the two regular general
meetings of the Society for the
year, the Council has predicted that
a majority of undergraduatss
would wish to attend and it has
mad* plans accordingly.
A public address system will be
Installed In the Stadium for the
meeting and travelling microphones may be used to carry debates from the floor.
Faculty members will be asked
to remind students at Tuesday
morning lectures of the AMS
gathering at noon.
.   .   .Kirkpatrick Calls Meet
Council Annoyed
With Campus Mess
DISGRACEFUL UTTERING, of
the campus with lunch papers,
and empty pop and milk bottles
during the past week has brought
comment from Ted Kirkpatrick,
AMS president.
"Unless students make use of
the waste receptacles situated av
various points about th campu»
the student council will have to
take disciplinary steps," warns
Kirkpatrick.
The chief areas of offense are in
the vicinity of the Campus Cupboard, the Bus Stop, tha Auditorium Snack Shop, and along the
West Mali.
Many empty bottles are being
left on the parking lot which aside
from appearances, constitute a
danger to tires.
If students wish to retain the
privilege of eating ther lunches
on the lawns, Kirkpatrick points
cut that they must respect their
responsibility in disposing of their
waste paper.
JOB BUREAU
OPEN FOR ALL
MORE THAN 2,500 students
were placed in jobs between
March 1 and September 15 by ths
UBC Employment Bureau, according to the latest figures released
by Major J. F. McLean, bureau
head.
2,131 jobs have been found for
men and 376 for women since
March when the full-time off ic.
was set up.
Because the bureau is situated
in the Veterans Affairs building,
many non-veteran students, e»-
ecially women, do not realize that
its facilities are available to thein.
Miss J. M. Campbell, UBC grad
.md chief assistant at the bureau,
urge all students desiring employment to register.
In the past week, the Employment Bureau has filled over 50
applications from students for
part-time work, as well as several
jobs for veterans' wives.
Pharmacy Gets
$2000 Donation
DONATION OF A large supply
of equipment and drugs to the
newly created Department of
Pharmacy by the Pharmaceutical
Association of B.C. was announced
today by the president's office.
Apart from this gift's monetary
value estimated at about |2,000,
it is particularly valuable because
of the scarcity of many items ol
equipment necessary for the establishment of the new course.
The university has invited the
Pharmaceutical Association to
make use of the laboratory and
facilities for examinations which
will be given during the next two
cr three years.
The Department of Pharmacy
cemmenced classes this term in
three renovated army huts which
house offices, class and research
Sixty-eight students are registered
for  the  course.
The staff includes Professor E.
L Woods, head of the department
Mrs. Phyllis B. Brewer, associate
professor and two senior labor-
t'tory assistants.
COED RED CROSS WORK
UBC Welcomes
Inter-Varsity
Drama Festival
JANUARY 17 AND 18 will see
the University of British Columbia
play host io the .second Western
Canadian Inter - Varsity Drama
Festival. Four one-act plays will
be presented on that date by students from the universities of
Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta
and British  Columbia.
Following last year's policy this
affair will be on a non-competitive basis. The four universities
concerned felt that a proper adjudication would be far too expensive for a student sponsored festival.
HIGH SPIRIT
They were also of the opinion
that highly developed spirit of
competition would detract from the
helpful atmosphere and free exchange of ideas which highlighted
last year's festival.
The Players' Club, under the
direction of its president Beverly
Wilson has been making plans for
the event during the summer
months. They are now casting a
play which they hope to use as
their entry,
V OF A BRAINCHILD
The Inter-Varsity Drama Festival was the "brain child" of Lois
MacLean, President of the University of Alberta's Drama Society.
On her suggestion, encouraged by
Sidney Risk, head of tha Department of Dramatics at U of A, the
four western universities combined
to form the Western Drama Committee. From this organization
grew the present series of festivals.
Professor Emery Jonas, head cf
the Department of Drama at Saskatchewan, is the permanent advisor to the festivals.
Eight travelling members are allowed to come from each university. They must attend to all costumes, small properties and royalties connected with their play.
UBC, as host, provides the lighting,
staging and larger props and is
responsible for the necessary advertising and selling of tickets. It
is now a recognized fact that UBC
has the best stage facilities among
the universities concerned.
GREENROOM APPROVES
Green Roomers feel that this is
one of the most important of council sponsored events. Like inter-
varsity sports it will prove beneficial and entertaining to all students. Never before has inter-
varsity drama been an active force
on this campus, but, judging by the
success of last year's venture at
Edmonton these festivals should
become an lAtegral part of student
life.
Many people now on the campus
will remember that UBC presented
a very successful play called
"Altar-Piece" at last year's festival.
The presentation of the plays wil!
mark the first of the major student
functions on the 1947 social calendar.

Prof Sees Extension
In Architecture Course
"WE CAN BUILD the best school of architecture in the
country", said Professor F. Lasserre, head of the newly formed department of architecture, at the University of British
Columbia today.
Professor Lasserre feels that here
at UBC there is a wonderful opportunity to develop the new department because "we have no old
wood to clear away", but may
start right in to study modern
architecture.
Already 20 to 30 students have
enrolled in this department. Tieir
course will cover all the required
scientific subjects in the study of
architecture, but the main stress
will be placed on the development
of a sensitivity towards their work,
so that they may learn to apply
themselves in accordance with the
general trend of "building for the
masses."
WELL TRAVELLED
Prof. Lasserre obtained his B.A.
degree in architecture at the University of Toronto in 1934. He then
proceeded to specialize in housing
and community planning at the
Federal Polytechnical School at
Zurich, Switzerland. During his
vacations he hitchhiked through
Italy, Scandinavia, and Southern
France, studying thc old  master
pieces of architecture and contemporary works.
HOUSING  SPECIALIST
Prof. Lasserre spent the years
between 1936 and 1941 in THne}me\
where he helped in the planning
of new apartment buildings ami
community centres. He spent the
first year of the war assisting J»
the work of civilian defense.
In 1940 the Royal Canadian Navy
began its program ol expansion
and Prof. Lasserre was called back
to Canada to serve as senior naval
architect of the Naval Service De.
partment at Ottawa.
UBC FUTURE
At the present time only tht
first year in architecture ia being
offered at UBC. Prof. I.nspcrrf
hopes to spe a five year course instituted in the near future. His
dearest dream entails the creation
of an architectural workshop when
ftudents may work on scale models, three dimensional studies, nnd
actual parts of buildings TheM&fMitt

OCTOBER SATURDAYS
Now is the time for all good UBC men
and women to prepare for Saturday.
For the characters who read the sport page
there's very little need to say any more than
that.
But for the others, the more inhibited
section of the campus, some explanation will
probably be required.
In plain language, the simple facts are that
UBC starts its American football season on
Saturday afternoon and that for any undergraduate there will not be a better place to
be than in the Stadium at that time.
Saturday's game against Willamette University wilj be the Thunderbirds' first real
attempt to play football under American
rules.
A small-scale attempt was made several
years ago to engage American colleges in
their favorite athletic pastime, and the results were disastrous, to say the least.
This time, even though no one can be sure
that UBC will top the league, the story will
undoubtedly be different.
Coach Kabat has the player material to
work with, and he's receiving the necessary
backing from the forces of student government
The decision to field the Thunderbirds
under American rules involves two considerations. In the first place, entering a
football team is part of UBC's participation
OnTh
in the Pacific North West Inter-Collegiate
Conference. That's the same league in which
this university's basketball squad found
many honors last year.
The second consideration is that, even
though the Blue and Gold won the Hardy
Cup last season in Canadian football competition with universities of Western Canada, there's very little sense in staying in
that league as long as transportation across
the Rockies costs as much as it does. (B.C.
industry is joined by UBC athletes in the
attack on freight rates.)
AU that remains to be done is for UBC's
student body to support the endeavour by
packing the Stadium at the Thunderbird
home games.Basketball players who made
trips last winter reported that the other
colleges in the league were more enthusiastic
in support for their own teams and exhuber-
antly courteous in their reception of UBC
men.
Those responsible for organizing the football team feel confident that UBC undergraduates and alumni w^ill show the same
spirit.
That's the background.
In the foreground this Saturday afternoon
will be the excitement of high calibre American football, plus all the glamour that goes
with it, meaning music, pretty cheer leaders,
and college colors.
Enough said.
ROY DANIELLS
For the first time in nine years, the University of Manitoba's English department is
without the services of Professor Roy
Daniells, who has joined the staff of the University of British Columbia. He leaves behind him the imprint of his keen intellect
and personality on the hearts and minds of a
long line of Arts students—students who
carry with them the memory of his friendly
sense of humor, his masterful vocabulary,
and his sympathetic understanding of undergraduates' problems.
We sincerely hope that his qualities will
bo quickly recognized by the students of
UBC.

The Wassail Bowl
By NORM KLENMAN
CAMPUS IN AUTUMN
BATHING SUITS are packed away, Daylight Saving is a dead issue, and the mornings are getting cool and misty once more.
Autumn's first yellow leaves litter the walks
The time seems most appropriate for the
Bowl to plump for its favourite season.
Where comparisons of personal taste are
involved, there is Uttle point in arguing, of
course. There are as many different opinions
as there are points of view, a situation which
causes unwary columnists to be singularly
cautious in expressing their partisan views.
Only the happy thought that, there being
only four seasons on which thc irritable populace may divide, no more than three out
of any four readers are likely to be alienated no matter which opinion we express.
WINTER?  SPRING?  SUMMER?
The winter has its strong advocates, of
course. They boast of its exhilarating
sports, such as skiing and skating, its merry
round of parlies, its season of commercial
entertainments, and its two prime holidays,
Christmas and New Years. No doubt winter has its place in the scheme of things, but
it can't hold a candle to autumn.
Callow youths are bound to exclaim that
the spring '\s the only time of the year. Pretty
little flowers and delicate green shoots press
timidly from the damp cold ground. Yes,
but spring brings love, sonnets, and sniffles,
to say nothing of final exams. Can't say it
has a chance compared with autumn.
But what are the enthusiasms of spring-
lovers compared with the worshippers of
hot suns, brown tans, sandy beaches, weinie
roasts, baseball  games?    Old  friends, you
can keep your dark glasses and sun-burn
lotions, give us the fall any time.
SEASON OF MISTS AND CELERY
Ah, but take Autumn, the season of mists
and mellow fruitfulness, as Keats puts it.
How right he was. Autumn, the season of
ripe, crunchy, cold, juicy celery, to paraphrase Steele.   Steele had a clue.
And the campus. B.C. is, of course, the
most beautiful countryside in the world,
and the campus is the most beautiful place in
B.C. The autumn merely enhances it. The
cool mist of the morning disappears with
the sun-rise. The walks are covered with
a thick carpet of red, brown and yellow
leaves. The Arts building walls turn crimson with the dying creepers.
Sports? The fall simply abounds with
them. The world series, the best part of the
whole baseball season, hits smack in the first
week of October. Football, bigger and bettor, comes back to the campus. Gold and
Blue uniforms flash in the sun. Packed
stadiums. Bands, cheer-leaders, fur coats,
chrysanthemum corsages, tweeds, pipes, the
smell of good tobacco.
A crisp wind off the gulf. Sunset early.
Basketball games. Packed gyms, victorious Thunderbirds, dances in the Brock,
Chicken in the Straw. A bit of rain. Coats
buttoned up. A drive around the point or
a walk around English Bay. Crashing waves.
Home through the leaf-littered streets, beneath thick trees pierced by white arrows
of light.   A warm fire and a good sleep.
Yes, sir, that's Autumn. It lasts until December 22, and we heartily invite you to

Orchids and Onions
THE FACT THAT nearly 8,500
students and 700 faculty members
daily wend their way along two
or three of Vancouver's streets and
on out past the city limits to the
campus of UBC is well known and
oft-repeated. It is not fact itself,
but the means of ac.omplishing
that fact which shall be dealt with
here.
Probably the means of trans-
portation most common to those
university bound is the street car
with its associate, the university
bus. The daily trip to try to arrive
on the campus in time for an
eight-thirty lecture is well known
in all its abominable inefficiency.
AU students are aware of the
claims and phdges of the B.C.
Electric that it is doing its best in
"these trying times". Perhaps it is.
But to these who travel it seems
to be the acme o.' poor management nnd high farts. Be that as it
may, the morning trip is not too
bad.
The Trip Back  Home
The payoff comes when, after
surviving the mauling received at
the hands of thc more predatory
Tote typo, and after sitting
through three of four hours of
hard-on-the-ncrves lectures, after
struggling through a long and
dawdling line-up in order to set
some lunch, after having sat
through two or three: more hours
of lectures and wended his slow
and weary way onto the bus to
Tenth and Sasamat, Totie sees the
waiting and partially loaded streetcar shut its doors and start its
descent down the hill.
This is bad. If the student is
returning home a.'ter a late lab,
however, and is already late for
his supper, this is too much. Because of the apparently narrow-
minded outlook of the street railwayman, because of the apparently
misguided, almost sardonic humour
cf some of the B.C. Electrics employees, these students must wait
on tho drcry windswept corner
until thc next care leisurely
arrives.
In the winter, that corner is
hell.
But enough of the gripes.
Come  the  Bouquets
There is a good side to the transportation battle, however, which
has not rece'ved nearly enough
attention and thanks. Early in the
mo.ning many students, completly
browned off with the street railways, stalk off in their righteous
wrath in ths direction of Tenth
Avenue, there to take up a stand
and to raise up their thumbs pleadingly to passing UBC- bound
motorists.
The beauty of the system is that
it works. The harried students find
their prayers are answered, and it
is with a heartfelt "Thanks a lot"
that they sink into the seat, soft
or hard it matters not.
If it were not for the aid of
these hundreds of students who
drive their own cars to the campus
* and p!ck up their fellcw-students
along the voad, the jam on the
streetcars would be increased beyond comprehension, and students
would be late for their classes with
fantastic regularity.
It is these kind motorist who
get, many a student to his classes-
many a student who could never
get to them by any other means.
Orchids to you, kind - hearted
Toties.
"Thanks a lot!"

To Attend UBC
BILL RAYMOND was dissatisfied with'his course at the University of New Brunswick, where
he attended last year—and within
36 hours was plotting a new one
on the campus of The University
of British Columbia.
By noon of his first lecture day
Raymond had (1) been rushed by
a fraternity member * and, (2)
made a date.
This ex-RCAF pilot is sur-'
prised at the number of co-eds
here with English accents—due to
numerous private schools In and
around Vancouver and Victoria.
Raymond, whose home is in
Woodstock, N.B., flew here as a

to help this time, now that wc are
on the campus and realize that
UBC does need a large Memorial
Cymmsium."
pert has been sent to the MAD
and if it is answered the band

Frosh Talk;
by Ed Arrol
GIVE ME ONE Arts course with
all the trimmings.
The line moves slowly on while
the mind flashes back two, or three
years—to the University of Cask-
atchewan at Saskatcon.
Thc air is crisp at eight a.m.
you are running on the spot when,
from thc far end of the campus
comes a trickle o. prairie lads and
lossies that grows into a horde.
Un versity has begun, again.
TAKE FIVE
"Take five," says the PT inductor who is getting tired. He
also wants an eyeful of Frosh.
Here they come, freshettes with
.squares of paper pinned around
the hems of their skirts.
"Hay low girls." They grin and
blush under the white and green
skull caps. "Watch it, son. You re
rot behind the plow now. A pale
faced sen of the soil lumbers
along, hay-foot, straw-foot, his
books drag behind and a skull
cap rides his tangled bar.
"Attention! Ar-r.'ght you guys.
Cut it cut. Down on your hands.
Feet backward — stret.h! Ready:
down, Up, down, up, faster down-
pu." Sweat puddles on bare backs.
CO-ED? CO-ED?
A whistle starts a cross-country
run. Another «n«» «sr,unds for tv»»
showers. Id minutes to dress and
be outside to answer 'sir' before
marching to class in the university
buildings. Heads bobbing in line,
eyes every whichway — to the
nearest co-ed.
They had their college yells but
you out roared them. In the Ccvern
—a downtown dance hall—you let
out with a roar! and always .am
around the floor echoed, roar! roar!
The same at midnight in cafes.
And at the dances on thc campus
that you were sometimes invited to.
Now you are back at Varsity, in
the role of civilian student. You
smile as you watch the reception-
placards, odd socks, green bowties,
tiie lily pond—souveniers of Frosh
'46. Let them have their fun, you
think. There are serious days
ahead.
Then you join another line-up.
GOLF CLUB
ALL GOLFERS interested in
participating in the activities of
the golf club, whether as a player
or as an enthusiast of the game,
are requested to attend a meeting
in the Law Faculty lectures room
at 12:30 Friday.
The Law Buildings are located

Joker Pep Meet
Goes Slapstick
RECEPTIVE FROSH were
treated to vaudeville slapstick
with a new twist at the pep meet
Tuesday noon, staged jointly by
Jokers and  Mamooks.
In a show that mixed audience
participation   with   custard   pies,
victims were first massaged  with
goo, later rewarded with Booster
Passes.
Emcee Dave Hayward managed
to give the audience "the bird"—
five pigeons although some of the
gags backfired.
Star act of the show was the
Indian rope trick, performed by a
fakir from India, which refused
to work because the fakir's Jinii
came down to earth.
Co-ed Tina Howard, who answered a difficult mathematics
problem, received a pair of white
angora rabbits.
Free passes were awarded to
Jock Morrison and Jack Gilbert
for paying the consequences.

FROSH TRIM
SOPH TEAM
SPARKED by a six point effort
by Rod Elliott, the peach-fuzzed
Frosh turned the tables on their
sophomore brethren, by outscoring
the second year men consistently
to rack up a convincing 20-13
count on the Varsity Gym floor,
Wednesday noon.
In whipping thc same outfit that
nearly took a similar contest last
ycar from the upper year men,
30-31, tho freshmen came up with
an exhibition of driving casaba,
which though lacking in polish,
left nothing to be desired in stamina and drive.
Elliott opened up the scoring at
the three minute mark when he
bulled his way through to the
basket and shot for the score.
Lome Tognott widened the early
lead by counting for two more
points, before Gordie Selman could
put the Sophs back in the flght via
the gift throw route,
FRESHMEN LOSE LEAD
McLeod counted for one point
when he was fouled on the sidelines, and then Bajus sent thc
freshmen into command of the play
again at the seven minute mark as
he swished the hemp to give the
first year melonmen a 7-4 margin.
The Sophs, coached by diminutive Thunderbird Ronny Weber,
shot themselves into a short-lived
10-7 lead at this point when Broad-
head and Boyoe racked up six
points between them to cap a determined rush.
However, the freshmen closed
the gap speedily, and counted for
four points to lope off the maples
with a slim 11-10 command at the
half-time gong.
DOMINATE PLAY
As the second canto began, it
was evident that the Frosh, under
the cagy tutorial coaching of Ritchie Nicol, letterman on Thunderbird casaba squads, had straightened out their sights.
Bouncing back from a temporary setback when the Sophs knotted the count at 13-all, the freshies, Inspired by a brilliant performance by little Bobby Scarr,
went unmolested to the finish wire,
hitting the hoop for seven straight
points without a reply from their
opponents.

GRAB THAT BALL—Making sure that Varsity will be after the pigskin all the time
on Saturday in the clash with the Willamette Bearcats, big Herb Capozzi will be charging
like the rest of the Blue and Gold linemen. Here Herbert can be seen tucking the ball under
him as he hits the turf after snagging a fumble.
Herb Likes His Grid
by Luke Moyls
Capozzi Breaks Lineman's Jinx
It takes nerve and stamina to be a football hero, as anyone who has gained prominence on the gridiron will tell you. But there
are many more footballers who put just as
much, and sometimes more, into the game
yet must be content to remain in the background with hardly a chance of ever sharing
the spotlight. These are the hard-working
heavyweights of the line.
However, there are exceptions, and such
is the case of big Herb Capozzi who is currently preparing for a tough season in the
Varsity Thunderbirds' front line of defense.
Herb has been a popular player ever since
he first started his football career under
Coach Greg Kabat on the Vancouver College campus. He put in two seasons with the
Fighting Irish at the same time as Eddie
Ryan and Reg Clarkson, and although he
never carried the ball like Clarkson, nor
received any spectular passes like Ryan, yet
he was cheered and praised just as much as
either because everyone knew he was just
as great a star.
Herb hails from Kelowna where the whole
Capozzi family is famous for their winery
and large general store. He and his two
brothers, Joe and Tom, are well-built,
tanned, and handsome boys — products of
which the Okanagan may well be proud.
Herb weighs 209 pounds, is young and fest
—he's only 21—and performs for Kabat as
a right tackle. He played the same position
last year for the 'Birds, thus earning his Big
Block from UBC.
A great talker, he's a valuable morale-
booster arid is well-liked by his teammates.
Football fans will again see Herb in action when the Thunderbird gridders open
their first American football conference Saturday afternoon against the tough Willamette Bearcats. And then maybe they'll see
how even a lineman can sometimes steal
the show. <
