THE    MUMMERY
ByJABEZ
What is Homecoming? Homecoming is when:
The grads come back to their Alma Mater and feel very
Igood about seeing so many of their old classmates looking
|older than they do.
The old grads look at the current undergrads and wonder
|tf the Bursar isn't robbing the cradle.
They take a closer look at the female undergrads and de-
leide that the Bursar knows what he's doing.
One grad meets another grad that he hasn't seen for 20
lyears and decides he doesn't like the look of him now any
Imore than he did then. He greets him enthusiastically and they
■stand around trying to recall something they had in common
|as students. This turns out to be the first grad's wife.
The more  sentimental  grads plod   about   the  campus,
I through the dead leaves, wallowing in the melancholy of entering the autumn of their lives. They look at the young, eager
'faces about them and wonder what trials, what heartaches
await this feckless youth. They are consoled by the thought of
all this innocence coming a cropper.
The lady grads, poised and lovely, return to prove that,
just as'all roads lead to Rome, for women students all courses
lead to kids. They smile to revisit the campus where they
learnejl to bait a look. They don't begrudge the bobby-sox,
having learned the amazing strength of nylon.
The.grad is surprised to see that a classmate—the goof with
the glasses—is now a member of the Faculty, and the character
who seemed to fit in least with college life has made the college
his life. Alma Mater, the Foster Mother, gives most of her
brood away to the world, but keeps the ungainly one, the
funny one, as her own.
Best of all, for the freshman, hard-pressed by the sudden
need to think for himself, Homecoming proves thht graduation
is not, after all, an illusion sustained by the University for the
purpose of extovting fees. Here is the paunchy evidence, the
balding proof that there is a life after the death of final exams.
Homecoming is reunion, a warm and gentle time. It's good
to come home and see the latest additions to the family. Say
hello, dear, to your old Uncle Jabez,
Remember
rrflWeee
Varsity playe* a Hardy Cup
(Canadian football) game against
the\rniverslty of Alberta at old
Athletic Park. It was an evening
game and the fog? really rolled in.
There was a pipe band on the
field before the game but no one
in the stands saw it... Just a few
eerie sounds from out of the
gloom.
Some of the fog-bound team
were Ed Senkler, Russ Keillor,
Larry McHugh, Joe Roberts,
Fred Bolton, Tiny Rader, Ralph
(Lefty) Davis, Art Wiiloughiby,
Ed Kendall, Tony Mclntyre,
Ralph (Hunk) Henderson and
Bob Twiss.
It was so foggy that Tiny
Rader, perennial outstanding
end, got lost several times and
received a snap from centre . . .
acted like a fullback no less!
On kicks, the receiver only
heard the thud of boot against
leather, then waited for the
I sound of a bouncing ball. Then
j he and the spectators — went
a - searching. Sometimes t h e
spectators were on the receiving
end of a good stiff tackle.

CONGRATULATIONS
By BILL DUNFORD
It takes grads as well as
gridders to make Homecoming.
And to help build a tradition
and a greater university. And
the UBC Alumni Association
has kept pace with the growth
of the youngish UBC.
Since the war when Frank
Turner became the first full-
time secretary, it boomed, was
blessed with some fine presidents and executives. It played,
and paid, an increasingly important role ln university' affairs.
Homecoming is the big day,
the focal point, but the idea
goes the year around, .or should.
Homecoming for the grads
this year means-a third return
to the campus for the new secretary of the grad group.
Art Sager, who brings a great
background and sound connections to the job, came to Varsity
with the Class of '38. He returned
in 1945 as public relations officer. Now he's back In '54. And
he has done a few things in the
intervals.
SAW THE WORLD
For example, the week after
graduation he set off to see the
world as a deck hand on a freighter. He stopped off in England
and was an elevator boy until
one of the tenants became interested in him -md gave him a
job; Then tenant was merely the
editor of a Londpn daily. So he
became  a  reporter.

Back-To-University"
For 1954 Trekkers
By ERNIE PERRAULT
I suppose my constitution can stand it. I hope it can because I am determined to take in Homecoming. Possibly my
only serious allergy is to nostalgia, and I will be breathing
great gusts of it as I cut across the campus lawns on November
6th, heading for the registration queue.
So   to   the   line   of   waiting great   emotion,  shred   hat  and
TO THE ALUMNAE
ASSOCIATION OF U.B.C.
. . . heartiest congratulations for their
excellent work in all phases of alumnae
activity. •
To the returning graduates—every good
wish for a pleasant, successful, memory-
filled Homecoming, November 6, 1954.

i
Sager had been a member of
Players Club, besides soccer and
heading the Letters Club, so he
gave up the pen for the boards,
joining a Shakespeare repertory
company over there.
Along came the war and he
came home to join the RCAF.
Eventually he was leading his
own squadron of Spitfires, bagged quite a few enemy planes
and a dozen or so trains and
assorted property. He did two
tours of duty.
QUITE  A  BOY
His post-war career added
real experience for a job that
is administrative, connected to
"town and gown" and needing
a good front man. Following
public relations from the campus end he was with CBC in
the "talks" department. Gaining an insight into the national
picture he became the Hon.
Robert Mayhew's private secretary when the recently retired
ambassador was Minister of
Fisheries. With that background
he was a natural choice to
take over public relations for
the Fisheries Association in B.C.
The   grads   have   got   themselves  quite     fellow,
alums, reminiscent of countless
queues I have known that have
led- me on shuffling feet up
to a ticket booth for a brace
of Players' Club tickets, a rendezvous with a Red Cross blood
bottle, or a moment of glory as
a diploma was thrust in my
hands. I will see familiar faces
in the line and will fight an
impulse to compare my increasing girth and decreasing hairline with my contemporaries.
Armed with tickets and a
program I will leave the Homecoming officials and follow the
crowd to the Cafeteria where
a box lunch is waiting. Memories descend on me scented with
steam and the aura of boiled
carrots.
YEA.   TEAM!
Then- to the football game
where, if the team loses I will
sit in contented silence .undisturbed by the status quo; and
if  the team  wins  I  will  ,with
hair from spectator in front

If the ghosts of yesterday's
gridiron come marching past .to

trip to a lecture room where
the letters X.Z. should still be
deeply carved on a seat back.

to do it, complete frith arrow

is  Ross
Is  Honored
Mrs. Phyllis Gregory Ross will
receive the University's coveted
Great Trekker award for 1954,
Presentation will be made at
special half-time ceremonies
during the Homecoming football   game   on   November   8.
This highly-prized award is
given each year to an eminent
graduate in a chosen field who
l)\s made e special contribution to the communtiy and
who, at the same time, has retained a close interest in our
Alma Mater.
WAR   SERVICE'
Mrs. Ross, C.B.E., is known
throughout Canada and in many
parts of the world for her outstanding and unique contribution, especially during the war,
in fields of service normally considered within the masculine
domain.
After seven year's service as
research assistant and economic
advisor to the Canadian Tariff and Prices and Trades
Boards, she was appointed Administrator of the Oils and Fats
Administration under W.P.T.B.,
serving from 1941 to 1945.
Mrs.  Ross received  her B.A.
degree from UBC in  1925 and
1 her M.A. from Bryn Mawr two
i years  later.  She was  awarded
an   Honorary   Doctor   of   Laws
: degree  by  the Alma  Mater in
| 1.945,   and   the   C.B.E.   in   1946
Jfor    achievement    and    service
; during the war. She is a mem-
j ber   of   the   University   Senate,
having been elected in  1951.
CIVIC LEADER
She has given leadership,
since the war, to educational
and civic causes too numerous
to   mention.
Mrs. Ross takes a special
place on the roll of "U.B.C.
Great Trekkers," that body of
distinguished men and women
who were the pioneers and co-
founders of the University of
British  Columbia.
1929
Varsity won their first basketball championship. Members of
the team then were Arnold
Henderson, Wally Mayers, Pi
Campbell, Ted McEwen, Russ
Robinson, Hec Munro and Heil-
ly Arkley. Correct us if we're

Hits 1954 High Mark
Friends of the University and Alumni contributed over
$50,000 to UBC coffers in the past year. This is a jaew and
significant record in the/short history of the UBC Develop*
ment Fund.
"More and more ex-students
and graduates are giving top
priority to the Fund in their
annual giving," states Aubrey
Roberts, chairman of the Alumni
Association's Development Fund
Board.
"They realize that their donations • large and small . go
directly to the University for the
advancement of higher education
in B. C."
Mr. Roberts added that "the
business community in general
is also increasingly aware of the
fact that the expansion of University service will depend, to a
very large degree, upon their
continuing help and cooperation.
The "friends" of U.B.C. contributed most generously in 1994."
The success and growing importance of the Development
Fund can be shown by the following figures:
Year
1949
1990
19S1
1952
1953
1954
Total Donations
12,219
15,393
17,327
18,437
40,072
50,391
Alumni donors have steadily
increased as well from 1400 in
1949 to over 2300 in 1954. It is
expected that participation by
graduates and former students
will increase tremendously in the
'next year or two, as the Fund
has now become established as
the major source of outside
assistance for the University.
McGill University, foster-parent of. U.B.C, now receives
annual contribitions from 40 per
cent of its former students.
U.B.C. Fund Directors are confident that the "Tuum Est"
spirit among its own "family"
will not allow this achievement
to go unchallenged.
All monies raised by the
Association's* annual program
go directly to essential and worthwhile projects which do not
normally receive assistance
through government grants.
One. of the most important objectives  of the   1954  and  pre
vious campaigns are the regional
scholarships by which deserving
and top-notch high school grad*
uates—from all over the province—are assisted in their first
year on the campus. These
scholarships are valued at $290.
It is worth noting that, without
these scholarships, many recipients would not attend the
University.
The Home Management House
is now on the drawing boards for
early construction. This badly
needed structure might have
been delayed for years had it not
been for the Fund.
The Palmer Memorial, the
library, playing fields, the Knox
Memorial, the President's Fund
(for general purposes), other
scholarships are among the many
objectives of the Fund in most
recent campaigns.
A few years ago, Dr. Nofman
MacKenzie, summerlzed the role
of the U.B.C. Development Fund
(then called the Alumni-U.B.C.
Development Fund):
"A modern university hat
many legitimate needs which
can not be met with funds obtained by government appropriation. Opportunities for usefulness
are always waiting for adequate
financial support.
With sincere gratitude to the
Province of British Columbia
for its generosity, the University
of British Columbia must still
look to private benefaction to
provide the means by which
many of its necessary and important functions and activities
can be carried on to successful
ends.
The (Alumni) U.B.C. Development Fund has created the
method which private fund^ can
be made available for the
University's progress."

colon of falling leaves; dull color of burning leaves; brisk fall
winds; brisk young cheer-leaders; swirling skirts; hard-running

CANADA'S

CANNED
SALMON
the only
we're Interesting in Is UBC
Alumni Homecoming Day on
Nov. 6 when our belabored, be-
licked, but nonetheless beloved
Thunderbirds do gridiron battle
with Central Washington Wildcats.
It's a climax of another Evergreen Conference season for the
Blue and Gold Birds of Point
Grey and coach Don Coryell, in
his sophomore season as a collector of ulcers at UBC, will be
trying his damndest and giving
his best to provide alums with
an excuse to remove some of the
tmoss off our long-stationary
goalposts.
Birds will do their best, and
after all, what else can be asked
of them?
Coryell isn't predicting a win,
in fact, strictly on form, playing
the odds and watching the percentages, Thunderbirds have to
be reckoned underdogs for the
game, a position not too unfamiliar for football teams playing out .of "Johnny Owen
Stadium."
We stand for aye between the
mountains and the sky
But likeable Don is HOPING
for a win, as will be every loyal
alum Who at one time has sat
in not-so-sweet, touchdown-less
sorrow in the east stands and, as
he took another pull on his well-
Don has introduced the Split-
T attack to Vancouver fans
largely on account of Stewart,
a daring, brainy quarterback,
who can run with the ball although not quite tiie passer Flemons was.
We'll ilnff 'Kla-how-ra/
Varsity '
While Stewart has been especially valuable on defense, the
real surprise has been third-
year law student Ted Duncajn
who played all his previous ball
Junior-style with Vancouver
Blue Bombers. Ted is oneV>f
the best kickers in the Conference, fairly fast and has proved
the best passer on the squad.
Another pleasant surprise to
Coryell, assistant coach Dick
Mitchell and line coach Bob
Hughes has been John Newton,
better knofrn as a winger on
Albert Laithwaitc'9 rugby team.
Most consistent ground-gainer
on Birds is Jim Boulding, 1jhe
powerful 195-lb. three year veteran from Penticton. Sensational his first year with UBC, big
Jim was hit hard with knee
injuries last season,v slowed up
considerably and Coryell was
set to move him to centre this
year before he started to tear
lines apart in training camp.
Up front, Dick MitcheH's line
averages 191 lbs. and lacks the
experience and depth of last
year.      Scrappy    180-lb.    Ron

the Quality!
.
UBC: "Wait till next year."
Every football year at UBC
truly is a "Wait till next season"
year as Birds are in the fortunate position of having no place
to go but up.
Things could be Worse.
While Coryell is not exactly
sitting around waiting till next
year, he has the consolation of
knowing   that   he   has   a   team
which is building and is bound
to improve in the next few years.
Under the  leadership of  the
University of Washington grad,
UBC boasts for the first time in
memory a Jayvee squad.   Over
60  players  turned  out  to first
practices and Don had the unenviable chore of having'to drop
some players because of lack of
facilities to handle them.
All through lifes way
Coryell has a young team
(average age—21), a potentially
good team, but like most UBC
football teams, relatively inexperienced.
Helping to compensate for
1953 losses are such surprises
as   Ted   Duncan,   John   Newton
at centre
after promising Blue Bomber
grad Ernie Lazaretto was declared ineligible.
Tuum Est wins the day
Thunderbird captain and All-
Conference choice Bob Brady
leads the guards.
Second-year man Ernie Nyhaug, 205-lbs. of brawn, takes
care of the other guard slot.
Two veterans, biggest men on
the team. 220-lb. Pete Gregory
and 212-lb. Gordy Elliott, takes
care of the tackles.
Birds are well stocked with
ends. Outstanding are m Buzz
Hudson, Charlie James, ^ Gary
Taylor and Dave Stowe. Hudson and Taylor are two converted basketball players, Buzz in
his second year under Coryell
and pass-catching Taylor in his
first.
CONSENSUS:—
UBC: End, good; tackle, weak;
guard, good; centre, weak;
