Governors Approve UBC
Home Economics Course
•   RECOMMENDATION of the Senate of the University
of British Columbia that a degree course of Home Economics be re-established at the University was approved by the
Board of Governors at the meeting on October 26.
Tho need for such a course has      ______________________.^
long bean felt in the province. As
far back aa 1929, the Parent-Teachers Organisation began to agitate
for a department of Home Economics, and in 1026 a campaign was
opened to raise funds for the financing of the course.
In 1031 a Home Economics Department was formerly established, but drastic cuts in the government grants to the University
in the next year made necessary
its temporary suspension.
Since that time repeated efforts
have been made to re-establish the
course, but lack of adequate faclU-
ties has prevented it.
Early in 1940, however, the Senate recommended to the Board
"that if and when funds are avaU-
able, the course in Home Economics be re-established prior to the
establishment of any other course."
Nothing further developed until the announcement in September of this year by the Minister of
Education that the course would
be re-established in 1943.
No details about the course wiU
be available for pubUcation until
they have been more thoroughly
discussed. High School labs will,
however, probably be used unUl
space at the University itself is
obtained. • *
Dean Mawdsley had this comment to make: "It will be very
nice to have the course here. We
are confident of one thing; any
course given here wiU be up to
the existing University standards.
"We have been importing people
and sending our own out to *ct tne
training, and now we wil) he able
to provide for them here at UBC."
The Board of Oovorno-s also approved that Dr. M. A. Cameron be
appointed as Director of the Summer Session for the academic year

unless the students provide a quorum on Friday, October 30, at 1:00
p.m. in Arts 106. The offices open
are: President, Vide-President,

Vancouver CoUege had sold season tickets, good for games in
which the CoUege played. Those
tickets were honored at the Saturday game and also tickets which
were sold for 50c and 25c IN

The crowning touch, however,
was the action of Father Riley, of
Vancouver College. He requested
the surrender of the 50c tickets
which were taken in at the box
office. The commissionaire refused
to give them back until the re
ceipts wore checked.
Varsity honored 400 season tickets and $100 worth of 50c tickets.

Any more occurrences such as
that of last Saturday are hoped
to be averted by this action.
Sports on the campus are tolerated only if the expenditures are
not too high, and many more financial losses Uke Saturday's Varsity lost over 1100, wiU result in
complete disruption of outside
sports, according to Rod Morris,
president of the AMS.
Football Features
Saturday Festivities
Potlatch-Dance Set
•   FOR A FEW HOURS on Saturday the "good old days"
will return to the campus when the annual Home-coming week gives the students a chance to really cut loose in
the traditional way.
Feature attraction for most of the n
male undergrade will be the
American football game which will
start around 3:30, and should give
the boys plenty of time to see the
best part of the game after the
army parade. For the rest of the
students an English rugby match
wlU provide the entertainment
from 2:30 on.
Interest in the American game
is running high on the campus,
due to the impetus given the sport
by last Saturday's victory over
Vancouver CoUege. The Varsity
squad has a flashy backfield that
should provide the crowd with
plenty of excitement. Additions

Football Fiasco
Varsity's American football team won
a victory on the field last Saturday, but the
University took a shellacking at the gate
due to a complete lack of organization in regard to sale of tickets and gate receipts.
Arvid Backman, treasurer of the Council was not informed as to what was going
on until shortly before noon on the day of
the game. Apparently the arrangements
were made through the manager and coach
of the team and they neglected to get in
touch with Backman.
As a result of this mix-up the University
found it necessary to honor the season passes
for Vancouver CoUege, they also found that
the College was to get all receipts from tickets that the College representatives sold
in advance. Some of these tickets were sold
in front of the ticket windows at the Stadium, Varsity was charged with all expenses, and although they cleared these,
they did lose a good deal of revenue at the
No representative of any team or organisation on the campus has any right to
make a definite financial commitment with
another orgnniiation until that agreement
has been approved by the Student Council
and the Treasurer of the A.M.S.
The real blame for the mess last Saturday* may he laid at the feet of the Men's
Athletic head, Lynn Sully. It is up to Sully
to see that the managers of the teams under
his directorate comply with the regulations
of the Alma Mater Society.
Sully has put up a good fight to keep
athletics alive on this campus, and from this
point of view he has had, so far, a very successful year, but he seems to lose track of
the financial considerations.
Athletics are a vital part of this university's extra-curricular life, but they are
not paramount to the needs of other organizations. In spite of the fact that the A.M.S.
has a surplus on hand there is no reason
carelessly to assume that any expense for
athletics is justifiable. They must be as
carefully financed as any other campus
We would like to commend Backman's
stand on this particular incident. When he
was informed of the situation he cancelled
all future games with Vancouver College
pending more difinite financial arrangements. This action was ratified by Council
at their weekly meeting last Monday night.
They also announced that any .budget
for an expected function must be presented
to them two weeks before the date of the
function' or it would not be approved. For
the sake of the treasury we hope they stick
with it. ,
• Faculty Forum By Maf*ar* *• *•**
Because the possible repercussions of
war on our civilian population have increased enormously in the last eleven months,
many thousands of British Columbians have
attended classes in first aid to the injured
and a large proportion of them have secured
at least their first certificate. The intricacies
of bandaging, of pressure points, of artificial
respirations, and particularly of the treatment of shook, have been explained to these
students and they have practised to become
adept before the bombs begin to fall. Those
who -really have valued their training have
realized that one examination did not truly
qualify them, and they have repeated their
courses, two, three, even four times. "We
mutt be prepared for any emergency,"
■earns to have been the driving urge.
But are we citizens of British Columbia
prepared for emergencies, or do we regard
that word as applicable only to injuries
consequent upon air raids or invasion? The
sad truth, the skeleton in our cupboard, is
that in 1941 our toll from violent deaths presented a higher rate than any other province
in Canada. Not only were we considerably
higher on the total, but we headed the unhappy parade in street-car and other road
transport accidents, not including motor
vehicle accidents; in agricultural and forestry accidents; in accidental drownings. We
were a close second in railway accidents,
water transport accidents, and accidents in
mines and quarries Fortunately not all accidents are fatal, but a rate of 98 per 100,000
of our population is much too high.
It has been said that figures can be used
to prove anything. This shocking accident
toll proves that our responsibility is twofold—to prevent accidents and to provide
care for those who are injured.
The truly beneficial results which follow the intelligent application of first aid
cannot be denied. We all know how proper
attention to a slight wound may prevent a
half-inch scratch from developing into a six-
foot grave. Still, when we have said all
there is to say about first aid, there is one
thing that may make unnecessary all the
bandages and splints, tourniquets and bottles of antiseptic, and that one thing is
CARE.   Indeed, the results of care are in
finitely more pleasing than those of carelessness.
That care can materially reduce the
number of accidents is shown conclusively
by the reduction in the number of children
killed in our streets. This is due in large
part to the intensive safety education programs which are being carried on in the
schools, teaching the children to use care.
That adults need the same admonitions is
demonstrated by the steps taken in one
area. The children were asked to go home
and explain to their parents what they
should do to avoid accidents. Many persons appear to have attacks of the disease
which a negro woman said she had. On her
return fsom a visit to her doctos a friend
asked her what he had said. "Honey," she
replied, "he done say ah la suffrin' from
acute indiscretion."
As stated earlier, thousands of our citizens are familiar with the principles and
procedures of first aid. Most of these people realize, however, that familiarity alone
does not constitute first aid skill. What is
the first-aider's responsibility at the scene
of an accident? The first rule is positive:
"Send for medical aid." The second rule is
negative, and perhaps, therefore, harder for
the first-aider to follow: "Do not move the
victim or even disturb his position radically
until all injuries are known." So many people feel they must be DOING something
for the poor unfortunate. Unless severe
hemorrhage is present, or the patient has
ceased to breathe, the less actual handling
the victim is subjected to, the better it will
be for him. There is, however, one constant
factor in all accidents which may call forth
all the ingenuity of the first-aider—the shock
suffered to the nervous system. If nothing
more were done for the patient than to
have quieted his fears and to have prevented
loss of heat from the body by the application
of blankets, coats, hot water bottles, hot
stones, and so forth, the first-aider would
have made a very real contribution. Finding the necessary equipment is not always
easy. It would be a distinct advantage to
have at least one fully qualified first-aider
in every household.

Editor, lite Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Mr. Art Eaton and Mr. Reifel
appear to have a briUiant scheme
of putting pep into the pep meetings.
Mr. Eaton does not like band
music and believes that the band
should be thrown out and Mr.
Reifel wants a union orchestra
substituted. This orchestra would
only cost the students of UBC a-
bout 925.00 a week extra. Of
course the difference in pep between the band and orchestra is
worth this amount and the extra
expense and waste of money is
very patriotic during these times
when our government asks us not
to spend needlesly. We could not
of course sacrifice this large increase in pep and invest the 125.00
in a Victory Bond.
I challenge Mr. Eaton to prove
by vote of the students the truth
of his remarks regarding the type
of music which this university appreciates. I would like to know
why the army does not have an
orchestra to march to if the orchestra has so much more pep. I
should like also to know why the
universities in the United States
still use the band on their radio
programs. The reasons must be
that the band is no good to march
to, has no pep, and promotes no
enthusiasm among its listeners. I
guess the army uses the band in
place of the orchestra because it
wants to lower the morale or our
fighting men.
Why does the University pay Mr.
Delamont to conduct the band
when none of the students of UBC
like the band anyway?
Any conductor who organizes
the musical contributions to the
first pep meeting of the season,
fills the auditorium, makes the students sing and call him back to
the microphone to entertain them,
cannot possibly be promoting pep.
It is noted that Mr. Eaton admits
the merits of the performance of
the band. This is hardly consistent with his other remark, quote:
"I don't like band music," and the
conclusion naturally arrived at is
that he knows very little about
music in any form and therefore
his opinion should not be taken
If Mr. Eaton dislikes the m.c.'s
manner of cracking jokes, f think
he should show us how to crack
'em at the next pep meeting. How
about it, Mr. Eaton.

t "YET AGAIN"! Thus the subtitle of today's opus—with ail due
apologies to Mr. Beerbohm and to
Mr. Lewis.
Every faU it's the same. Just
about this time of the year a vague,
very vague, rumor circulates about
the campus. Some people say it's
more of the dastardly doings of the
Dirty Nine, having nothing else to
concentrate upon. Others claim
that faculty is behind the movement. StiU others maintain it is
a dreamchild of a pub editor
searching franticaUy for copy at

But we do think It should bo run

• NATURALLY to carry on a
really    thorough    campaign,
many more people would be needed to check up on offenders than
are available here. This year the
Discipline Committee is to institute tho campaign, under threats
of pass confiscations to those who
do not comply with the regulations.
That seems to me to be a good
basis to plan "Clean-up" on, but it
also seams that tho Discipline Committed is a pitifully small body to
have to cover the whole campus
• WHY IS IT that there Is so Ht-
tie oo-operaUon on the part of die
students In this respect? Lot some
Intrepid Individual east any adverse
remarks against the university,
and he wttl immediately be pounced upon by Irate upholders of
Varsity honor. .But when students
are called upon to take an active
part in any such eassteJgn they
show an appalling lethargy.
In my first year in the Pub 1
was assigned to cover the cleanup campaign. Some one had made
the rash statement that new gar- ■

English And American Games At Homecoming
OK The Cuff
On a visit to Mr. Van Vliet's office Wednesday, I broke
into the midst of a discussion he was having with Art Johnson, coach of Ihe Varsity team.
The general gist of the conversation was that Art's
team had suffered a loss at the hands of the Calder hoop
squad in the opening tilt of the league schedule on Tuesday
night. Now this1 is not news to some of you, but the important fact brought out was that of the firs string Calder quintet
three of them were Varsity students.
Mentioning their names would not be appropriate at
this time, but University spirit is sinking to a new low when
students go outside and play for other teams, especially
when they help to defeat their Alma Mater,
Cases such as this have happened before and fines have
been levied against the offenders by the Discipline Committee. Other players have been granted permission to play
outside the University, but only with the stipulation that they
would not play against the Varsity squads.
Why should these men turn around and sign up with.
outside groups? The University is sponsoring, two teams
entered in the Intermediate A division of the V. and D.
League, and surely openings for them could have been found
if they had at least turned out for practices. In fact the
second entry from Varsity, the UBC team, is looking for
more players to round out the line-up. Why didn't these men
turn out for that team? Is their Varsity spirit dropping
that low that they don't desire to play for the Thunderbirds.
When I first entered Varsity I considered it one of my
big privileges to play for the Intermediate A squad and I
was proud to wear the Blue and Gold uniform Haven't
these then got any pride in their University?
Other oases have cropped up this year in connection
with the English rugby teams. Here again Varsity has
entered two teams in the Vancouver Rugby Union under
a difficulty of player shortage, but there are still some players who are performing for outside teams. The soccer team
even has a case such as this this season.
Perhaps students don't realize it, but when they register at the University they sign an agreement to abide by the
laws of the Alma Mater Society. One of these rules is that
they will not play for an outside team unless permission
is first obtained from the Men's Athletic Directorate.
These men have not obtained any such permission,
and it would give myself, • and others who are interested
in Varsity's welfare in the sports world, great pleasure to
see them brought before the committee and given their due

Frosh Drop
First Tilt
To Calders
e THE FROSH, who are
supposed to be one of the
big noises in the Inter 'A'
hoop loop, surprised their
supporters (the wrong way)
by dropping a 23-19 decision
to the lowly Calder Olympics.
There is some excuse, however,
for their defeat. Calders, it seems,
played three Varsity men, Don
Petrie, Marty Martin, and Don
CampbeU. These three worthies
took no small part in the Olympic
win, scoring twelve points between
them. Our Mr. Clarldge deals
more fuUy elsewhere on this page,
with the misdeeds of this trio and
the possible repercussions of their
heinous sin.
Coach Art Johnson says he is
entirely satisfied with his boys and
that he expects no more upset defeats of tho nature of Tuesday
night. Johnson pointed that his
team was playing system bail a-
galnst the Olympics, who didn't
use one snd that lt wiU take a bit
of time for the first-year men to
get accustomed to it. One other
fact came to light when Art disclosed that the Frosh boys missed
the astounding total of eighteen
free shots out of twenty-three a-
warded to them.
The game was reaUy for tho
first year pride and joy's to drop.
They led all the way until the
last quarter, when Calders suddenly came to life and pumped in
eight points to ye Frosh's three.
The letter's three points were all
free shots and represent three-
fifths of the free throws that found
their way through the basket during the course of the game.

Attending practices during the
week were Ray Gorman, former
