The, assistant to Dr. N. A. M.
MacKenzie, president of UBC,
was speaking on the subject "After Korea. What?" He discussed
the military situation Involved In
crossing the 38th parallel, the rehabilitation of the Koreans and
the'position of the U.N. there.
"If the aggressor has been
thrown back to his own border
and If . . . he does not ask for a
settlement, then you must pursue
him to a point where negotiations
can take place to the benefit of
the situation as it exists," he told
1 he packed meeting.
"The United Nations are obliged
to carry it through to a settlement
equitable to those upon whom the
aggression was made," he said.
There are several dangers Involved in crossing the 38th parallel, lie said. Another war might
lie precipitated in the area If China
considered such a move a threat
to her security. There is also the
danger of Russia considering it
dangerous to Vladivostok, lie said.
An occupation force "would be
necessary In the existing .situation,"' Prof. Andrew said.
"There can be no security until
there i.s a permanent force to implement r.N. decisions," he declared. "Organized peace is Impossible without organized  forco."

Stubborn English professors am*
the difficulty In reaching third and
fourth year arts students are
among the main problems confronting the Arts Undergraduate Society In their attempts to re-organise.
- Nine elected representatives
from the 12 English 200 classes
attended the society's first meeting Wednesday noon.
Some of the reps claimed their
English professors strongly objected to losing time for announcements and elections.
Volunteers Trudy Norman and
•lean Hood will direct the organization of both men's and women's
teams for inter-murals.
Chairman Glen Betts, sophomore
rep on the Arts Undergrad society,
pointed to the fact that the assembled sophomores were at present (lie only link the society had

The minimum requirements

Cross official say. is 100 pints

UBC students failed to meet their
quota during the drive last year.
Biggest donors were engineers with
81.6 per cent wfoo were beaten only
by nurses who came up with an
overwhelming 161 per cent.
. Redshirts last year boasted that
they would meet the * combined
donations of all other groups on
the campus.
Despite  the  fact  that  students
did not meet the 2600 quota last
year, Red Cross officials said they
were not disappointed,
To drum up donors during the
campaign, AMS President Jim
Sutherland went on a one man
stumping campaign, admonishing
students for neglecting their duty.

Soft-Hearted John
Council's offer of token budgets to UBC's
political, religious and in-faculty clubs ought
to provide students-with the odd chuckle or
two on long winter nights, should things get
Big, old, generous Student Council suddenly decides these groups "should get recognition for the- (good) work they do."
That's perfectly true.
So what do our student administrators
decide to do about it?
They offer these clubs small sums that
have enough strings attached to be mistaken
for a conglomeration of tangled yoyos.
Council, in effect, has said, "Here's a few
pennies, just to show you our heart is in the
right place.
"But if you take these, of course you
realize you'll have to turn aU youf year'i
profits over to us." j -•_ '£--.  _
Behind this political skulduggery is Honest John McKinnon, treasurer, who admittedly doubts whether very many—if any—-of
his token monies will be accepted.
Clubs that have made a financial success
of their past activities would, of course, be
utterly foolish to give up all their profits for
the sake of a few of McKinnon's expensive
And clubs that have had to levy fees nn
their individual members, in order to keep
operating, will find little consolation in a few
dollars' reward for the cultural work they
nre doing among students.
Critic On The Hearth
Bumps And Grinds
We thought when the campus ground*
workers got through shifting their/'Road
Closed" signs around, we'd find they had
made some improvements on that-collection
of pot-holes more politely referred to as the
East Mall.
Even to the driver of a late model car,
the East Mall is a piece of rough terrain that
he'd rather not try to take his vehicle over.
And for an older car, it's an out and out
obstacle course.
We aren't criticizing the officials who
are responsible for this situation merely because we have found something to find fault
with. Quite the contrary.
For one thing, we mention the East Mall ■
only because it has been in that condition so
long that 'we are weary of seeing students'
cars jolted to pieces on it.
And for another thing, we are proud of
most, of our university, particularly the new
buildings with which the administration is
making such rapid and commendable progress.
But what is the good of new buildings if
they are accessible only to drivers of jeeps
and Sherman tanks?
No, on second thought, we'll qualify that
statement. Now that the rainy season is here,
the buildings along the East Mall will probably be accessible only to the drivers of army
ducks and landing barges.
The Mummery
By Jabez
This column appeared in a 1946 issue of
The Ubyssey when Jabez was a regular columnist.
Dear Sir:
In line with recent changes in and additions to the Calendar, I should like to suggest
the following courses, to be included in the
next calendar (Not given 1947-1948).
Mathematics 173—A first year course explaining the system of numbering for courses
in all faculties and departments. Also to include some elective methods of remembering
the numbers of the courses one is taking,
other than having them tattooed on one's
chest. Open to all undergraduates, and slighty
ajar for older members of the faculty.
English 166-a-A first year course explaining as far as humanly possible what in the
hell the Calendar is talking about. Also some
discussion of the Anglo-Saxon origins of such
symbols as HL5 and H03. This course will be
given in English when you least expect it
and will clash with everything else.
Differential Calculus 5477—An advanc-
cers course dealing with such problems as
fitting 150 students into a hut thirty feet by
twenty feet if half the* students insist on
breathing. This course will be open to absolutely nobody. Please do not ask for it.
Economics 18444—The methods of preparing budgets enabling married veterans to
live on $80 a month. This will be a highly
theoretical treatment, quite funny in parts.
Don't miss it.
Psychology .006—An analysis of the mentality of students who drive to university in
empty cars, passing fellow students trudging
or waiting on streetcomers. Included will be
discussions of various methods of treating
such cases, such as strangling, knifing or boiling alive in caf coffee.
Animal Husbandry 500/ — A short
course on how to raise rabbits, for pleasure
or profit. Starting with a simple problem of
two rabbits, the course will become more difficult as it goes on, usually ending in confusion and panic among students and instructors alike.
Prerequisite:   Animal   Husbandry   499.
(How to stop rabbits from raising).
I should like also to suggest, Mr. Editor,
that the calendar be enlivened with photographs of the instructors, perhaps each with
the number pi his course written across his
chest. The student deserves some indication
of what they can expect to see right on top
of the breakfast.
Let's all pull together to make Ubyssey's
Calendar the perfect wedding or Christmas
gift. As it is, they're like an old razor blades;
you never know what to do with them. The
sooner we pep up the prerequistes for a
degree in Premarital Training, the sooner
we'll put out Calendar on a paying basis.
And now having laid the ground work, sir,
I shall step back and wait for somebody to
put their foot in it.
Miss Betty Phillips is that rare
thing, the ideal ingenue. This was
most evident ln her Wednesday
recital. In my years of attendance
at musicalshows 1 have never encountered • youoc woman so perfectly suited to plsy* those hapten
roles; those of the-musical comedy
When we enter the front door
of s good musical we have to leave
a number of things in the check
room. Among .these one might include a t*»te for realism, a horror
of sentimentality (even if It is genuinely expressed from the heart,)
and a disdainful attitude towards
artlflcallty of any sort. This world
Is not ours to sneer at but to believe In. We have to go prepared
to be charmed, visually titillated,
bathed by tbe melodies, amused
by tha repartee but never, never
ready to think for ourselves or to
question any of niuslcal comedy's
overly familiar conventions.
Far be It from me to decry the
musical aa It exists today but tt
seems to me that those people
(and there are a good many of
them in the vicinity) who refuse
to indulge In a musical's many
pleasures  on   purely   intellectual
grounds cut themselves off from
what has undoubtedly become a
significant theatrical form. Most
of those embarrassing contrivances, the turn-of-the-century operat-
tea, have been relegated to obscurity. Under the guidance of people
like Oscar Hammersteln II, Richard
Rodgers who in their musical South
Pacific and Oklahoma, have arrived at an ideal blend and balance of story and music, the old
conventions of the operetta are
being replaced by an array of
conventions that, although they reveal no more appeal to the Intellect are nevertheless more intelligent and therefore seem more
worthy of survival.
This digression rises out of my
feeling that ln the special world
of musical comedy Miss Betty
Phillips has the making of an
Ideal queen.
To play a heroine with any de-
gre of credibility Involves so much
that Is artlfical that most people
who play such parts give either
the Impression of studied naivete
or jUBt plain naivete, gauche and
The training of such a star Involves deportments, diction, acting, singing and ln fact, every type

Lott RtgUtration
Swells UBC Honks
A thin trickle of late comers
continues to swell the ranks of
UBC students this week.
To date 6,100 students have registered for classes, Charles B.
Wood, registrar, said. No count has
been made as to how many men
and women' students have registered but this figure will be ready
at the end of the month when another count is taken.
DVA officials were not available to say how many registered
students are veterans.
in the last federal election, Mrs.
Maclnnis spoUe to tbe UBC club
on the aims of a socialist and the
beliefs of socialists in the world
"Myself and others made the
mistake of denouncing the League
of Nations and refusing to back
its sanctions against aggression
because we are afraid of war,"
she said.
"We found out what happened,
for (aggressors have neve*.* yet
stopped before they have been sto-
ped. Now we have reached tbe
38th pai'allel In Korea, lt ls time
for us to make negotiations and
help them to rehabilitate themselves.
"The U.N. must refuse to give in
to either free enterprise or totalitarian   communists,''   she   said.
In outlining the outlook of a socialist Mrs. .Maclnnis stressed the
need for collective action, and the
acceptance of personal responsibility.
"Tt used to be the socialist's job
to criticize the administrations
which he did not believe ln," she
said. "This was before socialism
was ready to take Its place In the
"Now It is ready, and we must
all accept responslblity instead of
hiding ourselves until we think
things are done right. Socialism
must grow like all organisms, step
by step, not overnight.
"We, must back the United Nations because we have no choice
between good and bad, lt is a
choice between bad and rotten.
"The League of Nations failed,
and many of us did not back it.
The world gave us a second chance |
when the U.N. was organized.
Graduates are not showing up to have their pictures
taken for the Totem, Publication Board yearbook.

behind Brock Hall to be snapped, John Campbell, official
Totem photographer, told the Ubyssey today.
To meet the deadline, it is necessary to snap 80 to 90
persons a day, he said.
No appointment is necessary arid the process requires
only 10 minutes, Last day for picture taking is October 24.
Price Of Caf Food
Depends On Students
Campus food prices may increase if students don't behave
themselves in the cafeteria, Miss E. D. Little of the university
food services department said in a statement Wednesday.
Higher prices will result because
the department will be forced to
hire additional help to clean up the
cafeteria,  she  said.
In the statement, she outlined
the general disorderly and un-co-
operative behavior exhibited by the
majority of students using the caf.
Despite ashtrays on each table,
cigarettes and matches are st'll
thrown on the floor, she said.
Lunch papers usually end up on
tbe floor although large waste
paper containers have been situated throughout the room, she added.
This happens at every meal, despite posters ln the cat asking students to keep the room clean and
help employees by handing in their
trays before leaving.
Students can help keep food
prices at their present level, she
said, by qp-operatlng and complying with regulations.
All girls registered in pre-med
courier, are urged to attend a Pre-
Med Girls meeting in Arts 201 at \
noon today.

Basketball On Move
With Big Turnouts
Basketball is on the move.
And judging by the response to early-season practice sessions, 'Bird mentor Jack Pomfret will have little trouble selecting his collegiate and inter-city teams.
Present plans allow for three
teams on the campus this year, and
approximately, seventy hopefuls
are straining their best efforts with
an eye on a position or one of
these squads.
To date, only four of last season's Thunderbird starters bave
reported for training. Included are
forwards Art Phillips and John
Southcott, and guards Don Hudson
and Willis Louie.
According to Dick Penn, asslss-
tant coach, no men have yet been
placed, thus giving every prospect
an equal opportunity to make one
of the teams.
"This, of course, depends upon
the personal ability of the individual," he said.
Max Beftrum and Cliff Croig,
standouts on the lnter-clty Chiefs
squad last term, are BoPn looking
for repeat positions, if not slots on
the Thunderbird five.
New talent includes Mulhurn of
Victoria College fame, Blssett of
Britannia, Durante from Port Alberni, and Bowman from PoweU
River. Ron Blssett led the Brit
squad to the senior high school
championship last year.
Practice sessions are held each
evening from 4:30 p.m. in the gymnasium.
"Good men can always be used,"
coaches stated, "and thanks to the
early starting of practices, players
can be developed before tbe first
conference  games  are  upon  us."
Best chance for UBC Thunderbirds to win an American football game this season comes Saturday when the local grid chapter
meets Whitman Collene Missionaries.
With their first game loss to St.
Martins College now merely past
history, and with two long; weeks
of solid scrimmage practice to
their credit, Thunderbirds appear
confident as to tbe outcome of Saturday's tilt.
Head coach Orville Burke, along
with line coach "Jelly'' Anderson,
has been giving the Birds a thorough going over, and team now appears more than ready to meet the
Whltntan attack.
Bulk ot Burke's training schedule over the past two weeks has
been devoted to pass defence, and
with Cal Boyes, returning letter-
man and co-captain of the Missionaries, again tossing from tbe quarterback slot, defence will bave to
be more than adequate.
Whitman football coacbeB Archie Kodros and,Joe Beldler have
made no  secret of the  faetMhnt
First practice of the UBC Thunderbird hockey team will be held
Monday in the Forum from 5:4,"
to 6:45 p.m.
Meeting formerly schodnled for
noon today has been cancelled. Potential players who, as yet, have
not filled In hockey forms, may do
so ln the office of the Graduate
Manager of Athletics.
they were disappointed in (heir
team's showings against Whitworth and Linfield respectively.
Latter tilt was first conference
contest for each team.
The Missinnries mimher 54 in
all, however, and Including 15 let-
ternien. And It Is here where the
UBC squad is chiefly in the minority, for experienced players are
definitely lacking in the homo team
Returning stars such as Dave
McFarlane, Cece Taylor, Gil Steer,
and George Pull, along with promising newcomers Doug Swail, Dan
Lazosky and Gordon Flemons, will
bolster the UBC group.
But  00  minutes  is a  long  foot
ball game, and It Is in lack of sT!V
stitut.es that the UBC problem
mainly lies.
Willi the last two weeks
training now neatly stowed away,
however, bench material is quickly shaping into first class player-
Dick Matthews is a probable
starter after the outstanding performance he gave ln the St. Martins test.
Giant pep rally In the Stadium
at ,12:30 p.m. today will give students a better opportunity to become familiar with UBC's team
and as it operates from the newly-
installed "T" formation.
