Mystery  Broken After Police,

One oi the most baffling problems ever to confront University officials was solved today by -the Kickapoo Club.
A large wooden box was found in Brock Lounge Tuesday
afternoon by the Janitors as they swept under the sleeping
Brock hermits.
Speculation over the box ran from the possibility of sabotage to the discovery of the Stone of Scone.

The Kickapoos, campus pep club,

The actual Totem pole was carved by Mrs. N'eel Kakasalas of Vancouver. Its story Is as follows:
The pole has no ancient legend
attached to It as it is an idea or
concept of the native people before
the white man came to B.C. In the

a coneept that the Great Spirit

Students have heard over llie pist Mto
years how downtown business men ind the
pedple of Vancouver generally ir% Hoi supporting the University by
button fhroligh bursaries

Blame has 'been placed upon thWe bUsl-
ness wien although We believe that Hiost of
these business men do wot real!** that each

"Why i-m they know ahout this?" !f th-y
dM realle the amouht of -business they derive
frton the students, we feel sure thit there
would lire more support forthcoming.    •
How can they be informed that our concerts, plays, athletics, special events, etc.
are of the best calibre in the city? Most students take a passive attitude and feel there
is nothing they can do about it. We feel differently. We believe that a great percentage of
he downtown business men are parents or
relatives of the student of this university.
Why then could students not use this channel
for securing support for oUr university? An
example will reveal what could be done if
students worked together towards the same
objective. ^
Monday and Juesday of last week were
set aside for student performances of "The
Male Animal"—lhe UBC Players Club Annual Spring Production. Both these performances had one thousand students in attendance. There were Very few students who did
not think it was a great student production.
Public performances -were Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday night. Friday and
Saturday nights ware well-attended but Wednesday and Thursday night, the auditorium
yas less than half full. Of the 2000 students
who attended the student performance, how
many went home and told their parents about
the play? How many invited their parents to
ale it? Pttbahly v«ty ft*, ^ose studehts

ttoNvever, to our knowledge there li no such
prbftani ln existence today, hor has there
ever been one. fc begin with, UBC is in a
very poot position ih that It Is outside thi
city of Vancouver. We must overcome this
disadvantage. We must first start with our
otfh parents and relatives and gradually their
influence Will show effects upon their friends.
This fcould be -called an invisible campaign.
At the same time students must carry on
a visible campaign—sending campus speakers to clubs and organizations such
as Kiwanis, Rotary, Lions, and Vancouver
Board of Trade. These speakers could give a
series of informative lectures over a period
of a year or two. This, we feel, could be very
Also, we favour more demonstrations.
These must be constructive—hot destructive.
Demonstrations in the past, as a whole have
not actually been destructive but only made
to look that way by poor, uncalled—for pubUcity. If these demonstrations were carried on
more often, It would not be long before the
people of Vancouver would recognize that
these demonstrations are part of a campus
spirit and are in effect harmless. We feel it is
unnecessary to approach City Council for permission for such demonstrations as they have
always refused in the past and there is no
reason to expect that.they will change their
stand now. Almost every other University in
Canada has carried on demonstrations in their
downtown areas except UBC, and it is about
time the students did show the people of
Vancouver that there is a university here.
John, a handsome young engineer, was planning to marry
Marsha within two weeks of his graduation. -
When graduation came around John could see ho reason

For Commercemen Only
AMS Elections this year were poorly supported by the students and long and loud
was the hollering about it.
However, we are changing tone a bit and
directing a little applause towards the Commerce faculty. Their recent elections draw a
much greater percentage of voters than either
AMS or EUS. More applause. We have found
another source of student spirit.
We would like to make a few suggestions
to the new executive. Fan this fire and pour
on more coal. Organize a Commerce cheering
section at athletic functions. Cheerleaders can
lead you in your own yells and cheers. Give
good support to your intramural entries. Try
a few pep meets for your dances.
This is a big job but Commerce has the
strength and ability to succeed. Meet the challenge optimistically. Good Luck.

But before we sign our valedictory we

amount of the merci's go to the members of

Straggler's Gulch
Straggler's Gulch — Texas —
.fcURP)— Stragglers Gulch Radio
reported at 10 p.m. this evening
that a large band of rustlers have
not yet got the herd over the border.   '
The attention of every American citizen tonight is focused on
Straggler's Gulch, and the question on every Up all over the country ls "Will the ruttlerj get the
herd over the border by midnight?"
Businessmen, hurrying into thelt
clubs for a quick game of chess,
pause beside the news stand to
see If any Word has come ln from
little   town  on   the   border.
DEF Radio Network has got its
roving reporter on the scene, stationed just over the bdrder.
I have persohally interviewed
General "Atom" Markarty, the tactical genius, who states "Dunno."
However, at a conference Of the
American Institute of Cattle Rustlers, the speaker outlined a brief
plan for getting the herd across.
He said, while fingering his shoulder-holster, that the task Is a
simple one. After all there are
only 200,000 cattle.
His plan Is to cut one arm off
the fellow who squeals when the
Sherrlff asks him which way hey
went, and when he answers "they
went that-a-way," he can point only
one way, which will, of course, be
thc wrong way. Then the rustlers will have no trouble making
It by midnight.
The latest word is that they are
within four miles of the border.

special lenses on their cameras to

accounts for the fact that beef Is

The eyes of the great American
people are glued to 'their television sets—they are determined to
find out if the rustlers made It
or not. Doctors with hot water are

At press time today, the small

Is still ln doubt, but It ls believed
that If they go through he gulch,
and ndt over the plains, where the
Sherrlff ls waiting for them, they
should just make lt.
It ls reported that one of the
rustlers, "No-nose," took tactics
with the COTC at UBC so lt ls very
likely that they will turn around,
and drive the herd up to Chicago,
where the price of beef is 85 cents
a pound.
But until vve definitely get word
one way or another, we still will
be asking the question that has
occupied the minds of all the)
brains of the country: "Will the

Bird Droppings
Nasty-minded Kickapoos approached student council recently
with a view to naming the rugby
game with California the Toilet
Bowl game. Prudish councillors
tip-tilted noses at this one, and suggested that the Totem Bowl might
be a iitt]# more proper.
Conservative by nature I still
tliis to the rejected Idea of the
"Toilet Bowl. Just think, If the Am
arlcauji won we could pull tho
little moron gag, and present them
■with ft sawn-ln-half toilet seat.
Or we could pull off a big commercial deal, and pay all the team
expenses by presenting the winners
With Happy-Bottom Plastex Tollel
Mac.Gllllvray's happy little men
on the sports desk could have
all kinds of fun with a Toilet Bowl
AS BIRDS DROP IN BOWL (Accompanied"1 by a picture of Laithwaite looking blind).
' Then the story:
Bird Ruggermen went under in
the final toilet tilt yesterday after
being doused by powerful Call-
fornlans, spearheaded by All-American Les Rlchter who has played
football in the Hollywood Bowl, the
Pasadena Play-House and American Can.
"It was the experience in the Can
that gave me the know-how I need
for the Toilet Bowl," he admitted
Playing was fceen aesplte poor
visibility and practically no ground
Grumbled blinded Albert, poking
frantically at his eyes with a handkerchief, "We would have won if
; they hadn't brought ln their Rowing Team at half-time."
Rugby officials were unable to
determine what caused the movement to the Bowl.
i "It  might  have heen  the  pancakes  at Acadia," one  player  intimated.
Laithwaite later suggested  that
i the Bowl wasn't the best place fdr
\ the  name.
j    "Playing under these conditions
proved quite a drain oit-oui players,
Some of our best men were flush-
i ed  In  the  first  half.  Cal ruggers
I pushed in from the side anifswainp-
ed  us  ln  a  series  of  undercover
j plays."
! Only UBC goal was scored by
Pete Lusztig who evaded Cal oarsmen to float the pig-skin over tbe
The Bill Bradshaw award, a
toilet bowl emblematic of rugger
supremacy, was presented to the
captain of the winning team in a
surreptitious ceremony in the
Brock Basement. Callfornians hurriedly left with the trophy before
enraged frequenters of the Brock
discovered Its absence.
Snarled Laithwaite, after Birds
left to play ln the American Can
with the U. of Southern West
Dakota, "Next time we should give
them the Birds."
FORMING a rugged rugger Thunderbird totem, are some
of the Birds who will see action in tomorrow's game. The
happy expession on their faces can be attributed to thoughts
of the victory smash which they will undoubtedly stage
following Saturday's game. Culprits shown from top to
bottom are: MacFarlane, Newton, Puil, Clarke, Main,
Smith, Tennant. . .
Albert Laithwaite, the Head
Rugby Coach, was born In St.

Rugger In UBC Stadium
UBC's stadium will again feel
the cleats of World Cup Rugger
players, Tomorrow at 12:30
and Saturday at 2:1.1, Thunderbirds and"University of California Bears will resume their
feud in the third and fourth
games   of  the   series.
Cup winner is deckled on a
basis of number of wins and
total points. Bears will appear
with 6-5 and 8-0 wins to their
credit. This leaves a nine point
deficit for UHC to overcome.
They must also win both
games to keep the trophy at
Coach Albert Laithwaite is
optimistic about the outcome
of the series. Last week, he expressed a determination to win
at least one of the two battles
his team was waging. The McKechnie Cup game w'ent by the
boards so fans can look forward
to victories over California. A
glance at some of the players
will bear out Laithwaite's
faith In the Varsity team.
