Ten UBC Students
To Be Chosen For
NFCUS Fall Seminar
1950 seminar of National Federation
of Canadian University students will
be held this August at Fort Lennox,
One hundred students will be chosen from universities throughout Canada, with the hopes that they will
return the benefits of the seminar to
their respective campii. Ten students
will ibe sent from UBC, after individual application and committee consideration.
Only financial requirements of the
trip, are that each student must pay
$40 to cover his return fare to Quebec and his room and lodgings for
three weeks. As this same fee is
being collected from students in all
provinces, NFCUS is able to pay the
cost of 100 students on this amount.
Fort Lennox is a federal historical
site 42 miles out of Montreal. Topic
of  the seminar will be a survey of
Canada, directed by twelve professors
and a dean.
It is compulsory that students return  to university on completion of
the seminar so that they muy return

UBC Canadian Legion Branch
Gets First Honorary Award
Ubyssey editors will desert one black hole for another
this week.
As the annual teachers vs. students contest, known as
exams, begins to rear its ugly head in the near future,
editors prepared to cut the number of Ubyssey's to two
issues per week appearing on Thursday and Friday.
Many have already made plans to abandon the pub for
the library, a building allegedly located somewhere in the
vicinity of Brock Hall.
Harry Adaskin Leads
Free Symphony Show
University Symphony Orchtstro
Commemorates Bach Cantannial
A commemoration of the Bach Centennial will be given
by UBC's Symphony Orchestra in a free concert at 3:30 p.m.
in the Auditqrium today
Leading the display of musical talent Is John Broekington, who will
add hia magic piano touch to 'Tschaikowsky Concerto In B Flat Minor.'
With the exception of a Haydn Symphony, all works have been taken
from selections by Bach, such as
"The 'Little, or G Minor Fugue,"
"A Mighty Fortress Is Our God," and
"Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring."
Led by Professor Harry Adaskin,
head of the newly formed Music
Department, the Symphony Orchestra
made Its debut on the campus with
a Christmas Carol Concert In 1947.
This year it was admitted Into the
rank of the major clubs.
Last year the orchestra presented
its first formal evening concert, conducted hy Arts student Colin illm,
who performed last Monday ln a duo-
piano recital. This year's production,
is also under his direction.
More than SO student musicians are
enrolled in the Symphonic club this
year. The orchestra was formed with
the main aims of giving students an
opportunity to perform in a symphonic
ensemble, and to show parents and
friends how the university is contributing to musical culture in the
Added to this is the desire of its
members to give additional entertainment to students on the campus.
Because of the latter objective,
Symphony Orchestra has changed its
intended year's program so that students may see an afternoon concert,
rather than an evening performance.

all athletic functions at which UBC
teams have played.
Their "days", including Wives' Day,

their bringing of disabled vets to the
campus for athletic eventa and their
"Mr. Somebody" contests have all contributed tp the life and activity of
the campus.
Their "Mr. Dollar and Mr. Pigskin"
contests have helped put funds In
Legion coffers and let them serve
the campus better.
In addition, the Legion hat, ln the
last four years "donated" three of

Working from ithe premise thail

Campaigners are also agitating for
the development of a large botanical
garden at UBC. Last spring they presented a brief to President MacKenzie
proposing the establishment of the

Dr, MacKenzie appointed a committee of five faculty members headed by Dr. H. E. Taylor of the department of Botany and Biology to
investigate the various problems involved, and to choose a suitable area.
All great universities and cities nnd
many    lesser   ones,    have   Botanical
Gardens. Fine gardens in residential
sections are often the reflection of a
local Botanical Garden or a Park.
Vancouver's stereotyped suburban
lots have long needed both a stimulus
and source of information to inspire
more tasteful landscaping.
If we consider the economic point
of view, it is a known fact that one
third of the tourists entering B.C. from
the States visit Butchart's Gardens on
Vancouver Island. Little imagination
is required to forsee the extra tourist
bonanza available to Vancouver and
the province as a whole when an
equally attractive and more extensive
garden is established here.
What else will such a garden do
for us? When developed, the provincial Botanical Garden will provide
outdoor laboratories for such courses
as landscape architecture, floriculture.

The nascent Totem ipark located on
Marine Drive and Agronomy Road,
will be 'incorporated into the Botanical Garden. We are told that our
totem park, when completed, will be
second to none in the nation. Around
the towering poles, some more than
60 feet in height, native plants will
cluster: honeysuckle, Indian paint
brush and herbs, vines and trees that
served the Indians 'in their crafts.
The present small botanical garden
situated below the West Mall will also
be incorporated into the larger project. Its history dates back to 1912
when two acres of land at Essondale
were set aside >'.o constitute the first
actual Botanical Garden in Canada.
Kew Gardens, the world's prime example,   attracts   millions   of   visitors
annually. Among its scientific successes, it numbers the introduction of
rubber and the promotion of experiments in growing tea and quinine. The
New York Botanical Garden, in cooperation with Kew. is engaged in the
search for African plant Strophantus, source of the new wonder drug,
"cortisone," used with much success
in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis.
Closer to home are the Montreal

beautifully landscaped grounds with

B.C. can rival either of ihese locations  for   ideal  climatic conditions.
It would be difficult to find a better
site for our garden than West Point

chosen: between the west mall and
Marine Drive stretching from Faculty
House west to the agricultural fields—
about 150 to 200 acres not including
the 10-acre plot in existence. There,
under the magic of gardeners' hands,
will appear rose gardens, Japanese

Some Inventions We'd Like
Jo Have Inventors Invent
A university student has invented
• "wife.proof" cigarette box. The box,
built Hke a bank vault, is so regulated
that the top opens like the door to a
tune vault.
—News Item
I'm all; for that.
And personally I hope the "wife-proof"
Cigarette box renews the cycle of "something-
or-other proof" inventions.
Here are a few inventions which I wish
inventors would hurry up and invent:
The "wedding-proof" shotgun. A handy
firearm for shooting squirrels, rabbits and
wild birds, this new, improved version of the
elder weapon contains a secret spring mechanism which renders the gun harmless within churches, court houses and homes of Justices of the Peace. Double-barrelled model
is doubly harmless under the same circumstances.
The "yawn-proof" lecture. Designed especially for history and philosophy students,
this new gimmick injects rib-ticking anecdotes into even the most ponderous topics.
Employs all the devices of the modern radio
comedy show, including the laugh-making
mechanism which automatically drops the
ecturer's long red underwear.
The "drool-proof" kiss. Girls! Take the
'slurp" out of that moment of ecstacy with
his smart, new, unobstructive device. At-
aches inconspicuously on the inner side of the
oWer lip. Handy for storing chewing gum or
ingernail bitings when not in use.
The   "anybody   else-proof"   girlfriend-
keeper. Consists of a small shackle which
clamps neatly around the leg of any standard
nightclub table and of any standard girlfriend
enabling the owner to do the rounds among
other women without risk of theft or loss of
his property. Deluxe model comes with extra
long, adjustable chain, suitable for girlfriends
who bring their own bottles and are allowed
to reach under the table for another drink.
The "touch-proof" wallet. Seals automatically whenever a chronic borrower approaches. Super-deluxe model features an
electronic device which automatically rejects
rubber cheques, phony bills, etc.
The "never-slip-down-proof" evening
gown. A reverse of the conservative, "slip-
proof" strapless gown, this gimmick promises
to make formal dances more interesting.
Still features the time-honored "vagrant-
brassiere"—so called because it has no visible
means of support.
The "Engineer-proof Ubyssey. A vaultlike device keeps pubsters confined in a safe
place, away from the grasp of barbaric Engineers who might otherwise use our favorite
campus newspaper as a medium for vicious
Red Propaganda. Padded walls for the vault
are an optional feature, at extra cost. Comes
complete with one large bottle of hair-restorer, to give shorn pates an additional
The "you-ncver-take-me-anywhere-any-
more-proof" girlfriend. This handy gadget,
consisting of one woman and one ten-volume
set of "The Art of Hypnosis," is readily installed in any modern living room. Fireplace,
chesterfield, pipe, slippers and a hot rum
included free with every purchase.

Eugene Ehrenhels
Seconder Statement
I have chosen Eugene (Johnny)
Ehrenholx as candidate for president
of the EUS because he has the following qualifications.
(1) Experience, (2) Ability, (3) Integrity, and many others.
He was sports representative of first
year Engineers in 1947-48, treasurer of
second year Engineers 1848-49, vice-
president of the BUS 1948-50.
I worked with Johnny while he held

Haar Dark Horse Candidate
Ir Presidential Campaign
Experience In finance
"A treasurer who has experience in financial affairs" was
the cry when Long John MacKinnon ran for treasurer in February against Boh Currie.
John Captures Close Election
Victory Despite Recount Bid
Not only was he a commerce student
but he was treasurer of the Commerce
Undergraduate Society, treasurer of
the COTC and a member of the
Canadian Legion audit committee.
"It is plain to see," proclaimed his
supporters,  "that John is  the man
for the iob."
The Legion piper won the 'coveted4
position by over 500 votes.
His experience in financial affairs
went farther than his supporters pro*
claimed. They Include being a member of the Fort Camp canteen committee, the Legion Finance committee

Oliver High School."

of the war he was made a' political
intelligence officer with the British
Control Commission.

for two years until he returned to
civilian life in 1948..
Dark horse candidate in this year's presidential race,
veteran John L. Haar triumphed over a field of five on Uie
final tally. ♦
In one of the closest elections in
UBC history, second-place campaign
managers called for a recount to verify the decision.
Tall and good-looking, John has had
a great deal of executive experience,
both on and off the campus. The
fourth year History major was vlc<>-
prexy of the UBC Legion 1948-49, and
this year held the president's chair.
John hails, from Woodfibre, B.C.,
where he hettded bis high school
class, and the school's Little Theatre.
, A member of the campus UN and
German Clubs, John was chairman of
this year's Legion-sponsored Belling
ham Invasion.
The president-elect is an RCAF
veteran, having spent four years
overseas in the United Kingdom and
Africa, first with a radar group and
then with Air Force Intelligence.
John is very enthusiastic about
UBC's future, both athletic snd scholastic. "Ultimately,"' he said, "both
financial and coaching assistance will
be available for athletes at U1C."
He feels, if it is possible to keep
Canadian students at home, that UBC
can equal most any American university in all fields.

Braves Favored
To Cop Title
Tomorrow Night
Braves   go   into  the
game  of  the  best-of-
three Lower Mainland Inter A
Basketball Championships as
the outstanding favorites.
Braves knocked over the Chiliiwack
Aggies by a 67-31 score at King Ed
Wednesday  night.
The students broke through the
Aggie zone defense early in the game
with precision long shots and then
kept ahead with a fast breaking
McKinnon and MoLeod led the UBC
scorers. !*WWW
The Aggies abandoned their zone
at half-time but sank only one basket
in the third quarter. Half time score
was 33-16.
Aggies are Fraser Valley Champs.
If the Braves can beat the Fanners
at the game which goes at Chiliiwack
tomorrow night they meet the Vancouver Island Inter  A winner.
The winner of this match meets
the Interior victor for the B. C.
Applications Sought
For MAD Secretary
President-elect of MAD Brock Ostrom is seeking applications for the
position of secretary of the Men's:
All applications should be handed in
to the office of the Graduate Manager
of Athletics in the north end of Brock
Hall, by Tuesday, March 14, before
5 p.m.
Ostrom requests that experience,
year of the person, and other pertinent remarks be included in the application.
Playing with their first team, including those who were rested in the
Stanford game last Tuesday when
coach Albert Laithwaite played all
his spares, UEC managed to come only
two points ahead of the World Cup
Scrum man Jack Armour opened the
scoring in the first half of the game
when he charged the Golden Bear's
Une to chalk up the first three paints.
Three liner Russ Latham, continuing
with the "kicking skill which gained
him title of high scorer for the 'Birds
all season, took the convert to make
the score 5-0.
Little Jack Smith, playing out on
the wing as he did in the Stanford
series in Vancouver, took the ball from
a team mate in the second half of
the game and slipped his way past
the defenders for what proved to be
the winning score. Russ Latham missed the convert.
Bears tried hard in the final stages
of the contest to try for a win but
they just conld not get up enough
steam to upset the local fifteen.
One try or penalty kick more for
the Bears and Thunderbirds would
have been mired down on the road to
regaining their lost World Cup.
Second game In California of the
World Cup series will show students
at both UBC and UC just where
their respective teams stand.
The smaller number of ex-football
players on ths California team compared to the fourteen of Stanford gives
Thunderbirds a little more of an edge
over Cal than they had in their
game Tuesday with Stanford.
Tomorrow, Thunderbirds get their
last chance to whip California before
the latter comes up to Vancouver
March 23 and 25 to play the second
half of the series for thc cup. j
Two wins by the one team down
in California would force the losers I
to win bolh of their games up here
in Vancouver. In the event of both
teams winning two games apiece, then
;he champions would be decided by
the most total points.
Last year, California won the World
Cup in tho UBC stadium, but they
were forced to do it in the very last
game of the series.
Not  until   after the  first game  at
Awards wil1 be given at the annual WUS-WAA banquet to be held on March 25 in the main lounge of Brock
Hall at 12:30 p.m.
All the girls on the campus are asked to attend and the
meal will be 50 cents. A block of seats is being reserved
for the women for the Bear-Thundrbird game that is slated
for that afternoon.
