 A.M.S. Meeting Wed.;
Council
ll:30's Cancelled
Problem
• THE FIRST MEETING
of the A.M.S. wiU be
held Wednesday, October 8.
In accordance with the
wishes of the Student Council, 11:30 lectures Wednesday
have been cancelled in
order to get a greater number of students at the semiannual meeting which commences at 12:00 in the Auditorium. The importance of a
large attendance is stressed
since this is the only way
Council has of determining
student opinion.
That the Importance of this
meeting Is fully realized by ths
Faculty, Is expresed ln the attitude of President Klinck who feels
the attitude of the students should
be "more serious than it is."
The Treasurer, Keith Porter,
will present the tentative budget
for tht coming year. Council's policy will be outlined by Secretary
Mary  Frank Atkln.
Under discussion will be two
matters from last year. One, a
resolution made last year to pay
the fees of the President and
Treasurer, and the other a suggestion that the method of elections be changed so that the Treasurer be elected ln January instead
of March thua allowing him time
to  duly  understudy  his  position.
Suggestions from Clubs or individuals will be welcomed, to
quote President McBride, "If you
have anything to say, now Is tho
time  to  say  it."
Maths Cluh
Gives $15
Cash Prizes
• PRIZES TO THK EXTENT of
$15.00 or more will be offered
hy the Mathematics Club this year
for math papers written by undergraduate members and presented
at   cluh   meetings;.
The prize money will be obtain-
e-d from this year's fees and an
overbalance of $10.50 from last
year.
Thirty-four students turned out
to hear Dr. Hull give a paper on
the Galwa Group of Algebraic
Computation at the club's first
meeting. Given without the aid of
blackboard illustrations, Dr. Hull's
lecture was received with varying
degrees of comprehension. It was
something like a mental game of
chess, to which Dr. Hull compared
lt, with the twenty-eleventh move
proving rather vague to some of
the  newcomers.
Thoso interested in the Mathematics Club should get in touch
with Ray McLeod, this year's president, or Bob McWilliams, newly
elected vice-president. Also elected on Friday night was Tom Collins  to  the position  of secretary.

Poulton9s Poulcats Ride
Again - But Solidly!
•    ONCE  AGAIN   PEP-MEETS   and   Mixers   will  soon  be
filled with the scintillating rhythms of Poulton's Poulcats.
Losing    no    time,    this    popular

organization had its first "jam-se-
sion" of thc year on S u n da y
and is already preparing fr the
flr-it parade of Varsity .ocial event;.
Sid Poulton, whose mi in objective ha.s been to pleas, everyone from Lombardo lovers to
Goodman gate;', is especially pleased with his new 1942 talent lineup; and although many "frosh"'
instrumentalists have failed to
make the band, Sid forsees opportunities in the none-to-distant
future   for   such    individuals.
Among those absent from the
hand this year are pianist Johnny
Fletcher, who is now hi the R.C.
A.F.. and that memorable trumpeter. Al Johnstone, who, because
of a reeent Illness, lias been unable   to    resume   his   artistry.
However if the Band receives
the same hearty support this year,
it will continue to send—but solidly!

Mawdsley Urges Girls
Fill Unemployment Forms
BY LUCY BERTON
•    SUMMER EMPLOYMENT, winter employment for girls
is now being statitized in the Dean of Women's offic**.
Girls who have been working during the summer or winter
are urged to sign up immediately.
Dean Mawdsley is making a list
of  employers  and   girls   willing  to -■.■■■■.^■■-■■.■-^-■■■■■i^-^-M.e.^.^.e
work either in the summer or
winter, and ao do this sho is soliciting the help of girls who have
already worked. Whether they
want work another tlmo or not,
doesn't matter, since it is the
names of the employers that ore
needed.
Some of the questions asked on
the forms are Nature of Work?
Rate of pay? Length of time student was employed? Name of student and name of employer? Do
you expect to do the same work
next year, and If not would it bo
available for someone  else?
Girls are urged to fill out these
forms immediately, as very little
can be done toward finding employment for girls until rt is
known   who   is  available.
At present several calls for girls
to do housework have come into
Dean Mawdsley's office. Plans are
being made to get Varsity girls to
type theses and essays for those
who usually get professional typists.
Museum Stays
In Library
• RWOURS CIRCULATING a-
bout the university that the
Burnett Ethnological Collection
was going to be closed to mak-i
more room for studying in the
Library were definitely rlenied today by Dr. W. K. Lamb, University   Librarian.
There is absolutely no foundation for these rumours, according
to Dr. Lamb, as the Museum, although housed in tlio Library
building, is not under tho jurisdiction  of   the   Library  staff.

180 Sign
For Frat
Rushing
•REGISTRATION FOR
MEN interested in Fraternities closed Saturday
morning with an enrollment
of 180 men. This figure is
much larger than in previous years and shows an increased interest in fraternities on the campus.
"Inter-Fraternity competition
will probably be keen", stated
Dale Rumball, Vice-President of
the   Inter-Fraternity   Council.
Fraternities will rush their prospective members at four functions
each, between October 6th and
18th. Each one has been assigned
two dates on which no other Fraternity may hold a function, and
two open dates during which other
Fraternities may  rush.
Saturday, the 18th, closing date
for persuasion, will be followed by
a day of silence during which no
young hopeful may hold communication with a member of a Fraternity   which   ls   rushing   him.
Bids for members wilt be made
Monday, October 20th, and another
period of silence will be enforced
until the results are made public
on   Wednesday,   October   tne   22nd.
The rules which guide a rushee
are essentially the same as those
thnt guide a fraternity. Tile
Ruahee is as responsible for breaking these rules as the fraternity
and by breaking them makes it
Imlpossiblo for the fraternity to
bid   him.
Upper Class
Passes Here
October 9
• NINE HUNDRED passes for upper classmen will be available by Thursday, October 9th, In
the A.M.S. office. Whether or not
some freshmen passes are included  in this figure  Is not  known.
Kappa
Rushing
Hit
• "ILLEGAL RUSHING"
the bugbear of Sorority
and fraternity membership
drives, has Injected itself into the present rushing campaign being held on the
campus.
Women's sororities who to date
have had a very clean record have
had their season marred by an unfortunate case which resulted in
the Kappa Kappa Oamma sorority
being penalized an extra day ot
silence.
A member of this sorority arranged a date for a friend of hers,
a freshman from out of town, with
a girl who was on the rushing lists.
The Pan-Hellenic Association, the
governing body for sororities, reviewed the case and although they
felt that the Instance was accidental, felt that a penalty must be
meted out to prevent further occurences.
Beverly Matthew, president of
the Pan-Hellenic Association, the
Ubyssey reporters that "the incident is indeed unfortunate, however to keep to the rules of the
Association we felt that it could
not  be  over-looked.
Members of the sorority whet
interviewed stated that it had not
been their intention to take advantage of tho rules, but that the Incident was without a doubt an Infraction of the rules and they accepted their penalty without question.
The incident occurred at the
Frosh reception, a time when
many "Big Sisters" lend their aid
to bewildered freshettes and freshmen whose campus contacts are
limited.
The rules and regulations by
which the sororities govern their
rushing to prevent high-pressure
methods such as those used ln
many United States universities,
definitely states that no men shall
be used for rushing and that no
off-campus   rushing   is   permitted.
Red Cross Room Opens

U.B.C. Secures
Neu/ Professor
In Economics
• W. J. BROCKELBANK, lecturer
in   Economics   and   Government,
has   joined   the   faculty   of   U.B.C.
After having studied in five law
schools and having lectured in the
Universities of Kansas and Alabama, Mr. Brockelbank has now
taken a position in our university.
A Bachelor of Alts from Haver-
ford, an L.LD. from Harvard Law
School and a Doctorate from the
Paris Law School are just a few
of the attributes Mr. Brovkelbank
has picked up in his student years.
Besides this theoretical background he has had practical experience with law. Mr. Brockelbank was admitted to the Kngllsh
Bar in 1028 and, before coming to
university, he practised law in
Vancouver  for   a   year. Page Two
THE     UBYSSEY
••   From  The  Editors  Pen   »  »  »
Important A.M.S. Question
The first Alma Mater meeting of the
1941-42 term has been called for Wednesday
noon in the Auditorium. It is the duty of
every vindergraduate to attend and record
his vote on the matters of importance to be
decided.
One of the most important points of
business is one which was deferred until
now at the last A.M.S. meeting held on
March 26, 1941. It deals with the payment
of fees of the President and Treasurer of
the Society.
Taking a cue from most other Canadian
universities where at least part of the fees
of the Editor as well as the President and
Treasurer are paid, last year's Council presented for the Student Body's consideration
a plan whereby the fees of the holders of the
above offices would be paid from the funds
of the A.M.S.
Unfortunately the plan was not ratified
then because of the lack of a quorum at the
meeting, although it was favourably received by those present.
Now the question is before us again,
and this time must be settled. Every student should think seriously and come to the
meeting prepared to make a decision.
Reasons  for having the  fees  of these
officers paid are fairly obvious. The work
entailed by students in the positions is out
of all proportion to that of any other executives on the campus.
Indeed, the position of President carries
such heavy duties that for years the practice of men elected to this office has been
to attend summer session and so lighten the
burden of a full course during the winter
term.
Naturally the opportunity of obtaining
summer employment and so earning the required fees is impossible for these men. Only
students in good financial standing can afford to follow this practice. Wherefore, the
office is closed to men who need summer
jobs if they are to continue at Varsity. Under
the proposed plan, undoubtedly the best
qualified man on the campus would be chosen for this important task.
Our fellow students in other provinces
and across the border have realized this
fact long ago. Do we want U.B.C. to lag
behind and in doing so be not entirely democratic? That is how we will be branded if
we do not open up these offices to ALL
students in an endeavour to find the BEST.
We can only open them by eliminating the
money barrier which binds them.
The Mummery • • • byjab.,
(An old column reprinted by special request of the Editor, after he had read the
new column.)
• "I WOULD LIKE to get a little dope on
the C.O.T.C," I said, blinking suggestively at the Corporal.
"Oh come now," smiled the Corporal,
"you aren't so little."
"I don't get it!" I whipped back, rapierlike.
I bit into my lip with pain as they siphoned away my last five dollars, thereby
reducing my wallet to just so many flabby
folds of imitation imitation leather.
"Can I have my gun now?" I asked.
Ignoring my question, they told me to
report that night for a medical examination.
Now, being a fourth year student, I was
naturally somewhat apprehensive of this imminent attempt to plumb the depths of my
fixtures, many of which I knew to be out
of date, and most of which I suspected to
be enjoying a prolonged anatomic siesta.
Seniors often look like something that
fell out on the way to Center and Hanna.
When they cut themselves, they have to
make an effort to bleed. Many are obliged
to receive the degrees in absentia because
of advanced decomposition. People look at
them and start to whistle "Old Man Mose".
For instance, do you, freshie, know the
nausea of putting on a garter, only to have
it slide slowly and insidiously down your
inadequate calf, and finally slop out over
your shoe? By heaven, child, it shakes you
to the very foundations, leaving your morale
crushed beneath a heap of rubble.
Physics
So it was with considerable trepidation
that I presented myself that evening at the
closk.
"Can I have my gun now?" I asked.
"When was the last time you were
checked physically?" demanded the man,
writing down my name.
"Well, there was a little blond last week
who seemed to misunderstand my motives,"
I mused, gingerly touching the area around
my right eye.
Then the man looked me up and down
carefully, his lips ominously pursed. The
silence became unbearable.
"What's Charles Atlas got that I haven't got?" I laughed nervously. "Besides
muscles?"
The man sighed loudly.
" Are you sure you want to go through
with this?" he asked, in a low, richly modulated  voice.
My head nodded on a rubber band.
"You're a brave man, my boy," he said
throatily.   "Have a lifesaver?"
Feeling like something that has been
thrown over the stern of a Union steamer,
I was told to wait.
Letters Club
I muffled through some choice leer literature in the form of medical pamphlets
that jovially reveal what you have got that
you never suspected you had, and how it
could have been prevented if you had not
waited so long, ha,ha.
I was being morbidly fascinated by a
Karloff edition of "Insomnia, Eh?'-, when
they sent me into another room, where a
swarm of naked men were running about
as though it was first call for lunch in a
nudist colony. I shrank back instinctively
from a hairy chest that passed uncomfortably close, glowering darkly over a pair of
shorts.
"Strip off all your clothes!" somebody
barked.
"What, no sarong?" I cried hoarsely,
fumbling with my shoe laces.
The doctor looked me over with the
manner of one who speculates upon the
value of a piece of strawberry shortcake
that has been left in the cupboard too long.
"Make it snappy, Doc," I quipped. "I
have to be back in the iron lung within an
hour."
"How  are your ears?" he asked.
"They're right here," I replied, twiddling them.
"I said 'how are they', not 'where are
they'!" barked the doctor.
"Hummn?"  I  enquired,   leaning  forward
attentively.
"PIOW ARE YOUR EARS!" he roared,
his face suffused with anger.
"Oh, gears!" I laughed. "I thought you
said  ears.    Sure,  I've  got gears."
I showed him my gears.
Flat Foot
"You've got flat feet!" he shouted triumphantly.
"They're easier to walk on that way!"
I shouted back.
For a minute we glared at each other,
breathing heavily.
"Let's see your teeth!" he hissed.
"Here, take them!" I answered, throwing them on his desk.
"How about your stomach?" he asked,
throwing out his arms to defend his desk.
"Alimentary, my dear Doctor."
Then he came at me with a 'wooden
paddle which he jammed down my throat.
"How am I fixed for oil?" I snarled,
when he finally pulled it up.
I was beginning to show signs of wear
and tear at the hands of this fiend, and the
damage became more wide-spread as he hit
me with hammers, stuck lights in my ears,
and ran a rubber tentacle over my modest
bosom. What happened to me shouldn't
happen to a concentration of German barges.
"Any marks or scars for identification?"
finally demanded this throwback from the
inquisition.
"Not until I met you, honey," I growled.
"O.K., you can go now," he said, screwing on my wooden leg. "I'm putting you in
category A."
"May the Lord have mercy on your
soul, or a reasonable facsimile!" I murmured solemnly, stalking out with all the dignity
and none of the glamour of a Godiva.
"Can I have my gun now?" I asked the
man at the desk.
He told me to turn out for parade on
Saturday, when we went on our first route
march. Yes, indeed. (Quick, nurse, the adrenalin!   My legs are twitching again!)

The
Gatepost
By QOBEMOUCHE
• IT IS PROBABLY highly technical hair-splitting on my part,
at this time (as the Liberals say)
to mention this fact, but the blatant way our friends across the line
have been attacking the racial
theories of the Nazis, coupled with
an eruption in one of their sovereign states, forces to mind America's own indigenous problem of
the  Negro.
With thunderous aplomb Willkie
and Wheeler stand together In denouncing the tcrrorlzatlon of
the Jews, the subjugation of conquered nations, while within their
own back yard, stands the Negro
—still   In   chains.
Not that I want to be a Westbrook Pegler but it seems odd for
tho country that claims "greatest
racial freedom" to have a state
governor who forbids Negro students from studying with "whites",
who evicts a maji, born In the
neighboring state, from the University   because   he   is   a   foreigner"
• WHY     SHELTER    the    refugee
Jew  when: '
"None   in   the   Land   can  say,
To us black men Today:
You   send   the   tractors   on   their
bloody   path.
And create Okies for the 'Grapes
of Wrath'.
You breed the  slum that breeds
a  'Native Son'
To damn the  good  earth Pilgrim
Fathers won.
None  ln  the  Land  can say
To  us black  men  Today:
You   dupe   the   poor   with   rags-
to-rlches  tales,
And    leave   the    workers   empty
dinner  pails.
You   stuff   the   ballot   box,   and
honest  men
Are muzzled by your demagogic
din.
None in the Land can say
To tis  black   men  Today:
You    send    flame-gutting   tanks
like  swarms  of files,
And plump a hell from dynamiting  skies.
You  fill  machine-gunned   towns
with  rotting dead—
A  No Man's Land  where  children  cry  for  bread."
Who,  indeed,  America, can say?

On  The
' OUTSIDE
By   PIERRE  BERTON
• WHEN     YOU     WALK,     black-
gowned, down thc crowded
aisle In May, clutching your sheep
hide In your moist palm, you walk
out of the University and into a
new   world.
Once they've dropped the hood
over your shoulders, the gates
have clanged shut behind you and
you'll find you can never come
back   again.
You can return to the campus,
tread the same forbidden grass,
gulp the Cat's lukewarm coffee,
chat with familiar student-—even
tako   a  few  extra   courses.
Bui once they'vs put your name
on that parchment scroll, and muttered those words over your head,
you're forever an outsider. You
are the man on the edge of the
crowd, always the fellow peering
through   the  gates.
. . . Always on the Outside—
looking  in.
• YOUR NEW WORLD Is larger
nnd crueler, ■where people aro
always in a hurry and clay-faced
men and women brush past you
on Ihe streets of life, playing the
gamo for keeps.
And as you push your way
through this adult world of hustling pople, and become a part of
the crowd yourself, It's sometimes
hard to realize that a few months
back you were sitting lazily In
Brock HaU, toying with the Idea
of   skipping   another   lecture.
• WHEN     AFTER     SEVERAL
MONTHS of lt, you've seen the
city from another angle, when
you've pered through tho doors of
Wsst end rooming houses and East
end tenements and doorless waterfront shacks, the University with
its <.ulet stone buildings and buzzing lecture rooms seems very far
away.
And when In the blue misty j
hours of the morning, you've walk- j
ed up the empty cavern that Is
Granville street and watched the
city yawning in its sleep, you
sometimes forget all about the
campus.
But you can never quite forget.
When September rolls around,
and you see a horde of green-tied
placarded newcomers waiting uneasily for the bus to come, you remember. And for a moment you
wish that you too could return for
one   more  session.
.  .  .  But only  for a  moment.

U. B. C.  Student Snoops " South of the Border"
by jack McMillan
•  through a crowd
of fruit vendors I pushed
a way and banged on the
doors of the University of
Mexico. It was May, and the
rainy season that soon would
strike Mexico City was
throwing its shadow into the
streets.
The University, unlike ours, Is
situated in the centre of the city,
surrounded by shops and churches.
The huge doors open on the streets
and  ragged  vendors  squat   outside
. to sell fruit to the students.
Tho sun glinted dully on the
portal as a gnome" In a serape
swung it open. By pidgin Spanish and gestures I indicated that
I wished to look around the
school and after some coins
changed hands -was left alone In
the  cool interior.
The winter term had just ended
and the rooms were silent. I walked through small lecture rooma
containing battered desks. Some
of  them  looked  Uke our  Arts  100
on a smaller scale. Age was evident   In   the   furnishings.
The university is scattered over
a small area of the city and this
section was the only one I could
enter. In it was a gallery of Mexican paintings, with Rivera outstanding,
Next to the university was a
bookshop which had an English-
speaking attendant and through
him I was directed to a graduate
of U.B.C. who Is studying down
there. This young man is having
the time of hts life batching ln
this    strange    city    and    learning
Spanish tho hard way.
Through him I learned more a-
bout the university as we sat
watching the lights of the traffic
below his window.
It is possible for an English student to live cheaply near the university and tutor in his own language while attending classes. This
the young graduate was doing,
living on tea and biscuits and the
plentiful fruit of the country.
He had come to love the country
so much that the thought of going
home never appealed to him. On
gaining  his  doctorate  he  Intended
to go to South America and teach.
I must confess that the place did
not have so much appeal, especially when he told me that the milk-
shako I had early that afternoon
was quite likely to be Infested
with typhoid germs.
After days of visiting the city
on riokety old busses manned by
teen-aged boys and of pushing
through crowds of well-dressed
business men In one district and
filthy peons in another, I decided
to  leave.
When I went my friend pressed
me to remember him to his friends
with a little homesick tone In his
•voice. As the bus went careening
down tho road and the sun set
on tho jagged horizon, above the
chatter of the passengers and tho
pounding of the motor I could
hear the' noise of the Caf and I
wished he were coming back with
me, to sit among his friends and
laugh over the same old jokes.
But he will not return. The
somnulence of the Mexican Mexico has a greater lure than has the
sleepiness of his own Victoria.
e EACH YEAR the new crop of students becomes more
studious, and eaoh year the problem of overcrowding in
the library becomes more pressing. Students are asked if
they must overcrowd the library, please don't study in the
revolving doors, and please breath in oftener than out.

• JOSIE'S BEING rushed by those
women's fraternities—I can't
remember which one but anyhow
I drove her to the party (I wish
I could have gone In, there wero
sure some swell looking babes
there) but anyhow she'd got another new dress for it. It's a gold
wood dirndle style, low walsted, I
think she called it basque, but ail
I know Is that it gives her a super
figure. She got it at the Rose
Marie Dress Shoppe, 2186 West
41st Ave. To make sure that it
wasn't gone she phoned KE. 2874,
and got It put away for her.
Romance has at last come to
a scholarly Players' Clubber, in
the form of a dark woman (not
of the sonnets), It wais rumored
that tiiey were seen together In
the Georgia, at a play and one
little bird whispered marriage, but
even   I   won't   believe   that
• GOSH,    WE'VE    BEEN    having
such wonderful weather that
you sort of hate to think of getting all dressed up in raincoats
and rubbers again. But Josie's
iiot taking any chance this year,
she got a pair of Rubber
boots at Rae-sons, 608 Granville
St. It sure is amazing how the
crowds no for the shoes on Rae's
Clever flor. The shoes aro priced
at $-1.95 ond $5.95 and the style
and value are wonderful. Last year
Mary Ann referred to a certain
Mus Soccer as tho "57 variety
man". He's at it again with a redheaded Mus So.cer with an English   accent.
• I NEVER CAN get past George
Straith Ltd., 90S Georgia, when
I'm out with Josie. There seems
to be something about the English
tweed suits and coats that irresistibly forces her in there. And
It doesn't take much forcing, either. The suits and coats really are
smart-looking—they always make
Josle look like a million dollars,
and I don't mind going in there
with her 'cos I can always look
at the men's things. A Phi Kap PI
Romeo who's pin Is now in Honolulu wants It back again. Apparently things have cooled down on
his side and negotiations are under
way for the Return of the Pin.
• JOSIE LIVES in a suite with a
girl friend and her aunt, and the
other evening me and a pal, who's
kinda that way about the girl
friend, went over to visit them.

Hut Sut Song and Gum
Not Liked By Mus Soc
• "THAT WAS VERY
NICE, Mr. Quigle", the
Musical Society judge remarked sardonically. "Now
if you will kindly remove
the spearmint gum from
your mouth, this time, perhaps we will be convinced
of your virtuosity." To this
the discouraged "Tibbett"
muttered something about
faulty accoustics and then retorted vengefully: "Besides,
it's Juicyfruit."
Once more the auditorium piano
struck an impatient middle 'C", to
be joined as before by the discordant gargle (unimproved In
spite of gum-removal) of the aspirant freshman. And so the scale
was slaughtered until Quigle finally arrived back at his version
of "Don" — five tones below that
of tho piano, which, contrary to
popular opinion, happens to bo
in tune.
The adjudicator tore at his
toupe and swore softly to himself
in Greek, while the back plage attendant hastened to slam the door
on the malevolent snickers of tho
Players'   Club.
"And what songs can you sing,
sonny?" queried tho admirably
self-controlled judge, gritting his
teeth and counting ten.
Without reply, the young musician suddenly burst out, with
great spontaneity, In the first few
bars of — "Tlie Hut Sut Song."
He had just arrived at the "rll-
lera," when the judge realized
that the "Hut Sut" was no longer
a dream, and consequently lost, his
carefully kept temper, telling
young Quigle exactly where to go,
this time not in Greek. Regaining
himself sufficiently, Mr. X, the
judge, shouted sarcastically: "Get
this" fugitive from the Boundary
Bay Wurlitzer out of my sight,
and set him to sorting cat-gut for
the  third violins."
"But I still say It was Juicy-
fruit!", shot out the disgruntled
applicant, who, after whirling ills
toga indignantly about hm, stalked
haughtily  from  the   auditorium.
Students Still Silent
On Directory Names
•    AMID   STACKS   OF   CARDS,   strewn   copy-paper   and
clacking typewriters, Directory Editor Doris Filmer-Ben-
nett heaved a missile in my direction.
"Don't you dare to ask me how _______________________■_■_■________■_■
ls   getting   along!"
"I    wish    to    heU
do   aomo   -work   a-
the Directory
she shrieked,
people would
round here!"
I gazed with surprise at the feverishly busy cub-reporters. Then
my eyes fell upon the piles of
cards scattered over desks and
chairs, and spilling onto the floor.
And I began to understand why
Dori_, not yet recovered from
thc summer holidays slaving over
tho "Tillicum", i*s somewhat wild-
eyed.
When she managed to get her
mind out of the card-piles long
enough to talk coherently, Doris
said she couldn't commit herself as
to thc date vipon which eager students can expect to see thc Directory  on  the campus.
Once more, she sends out a complaint about the ever-growing list
of omissions on the cards. Why,
she desperately wants to know,
does the ward of Edward Lattln,
of 209 Prior St. remain so stubbornly silent about hli or h.r
name. If only such people would
drop into the Pub just for a moment to give the required Information, they would be welcomed with
open arms. "So please come,"
begs Doris!

Ubyssey   Expert Presents  Bowling Advice  For Beginners
•   IF YOU ARE NOT a drinking man, and who Isn't, you'U know that
the Oeorgla is Ailed to capacity on cold winter nights.  Aa a body muat
keep warm, we auggest, in plaoe of an uncorking good time at ye olde
taverne, a quiet, and educational, evening at the bowling allies.
Bowling, aa a pastime, thla year ahould gain many frlenda for the
foUowing reasons. The first la—the price haa gone up. The aecond lathe stacks are open only until 9:30. The third la that moat of Marine
Drive haa been appropriated for mlUtary aervice, thua leaving the reat
rather overcrowded. The fourth is that few people* wlU read, thla artlole.
The fifth la vague—well nigh unknown. The sixth requires 18 unlta, and
who wants a double degree?
Before attempting a game of bowls, a note should be made of the
names and positions of the following pieces of apparatus:
1. Th* Alley,—Constructed by high crown road experts, the aUeyt
appear to be straight but actually break sharply towards left centre field.
2. The Gutters,—Placed conveniently at each aide of the aUey, the
purpose of theae troughs Is to guide an otherwise good bowl away from the
pins. When a well placed ahot flnda the gutter, aa ia common, a sharp cry of
"balls!" should be screamed, to warn sclencemen of impending danger.
3. The Balls.—There ls but one size, too small and too, heavy.
(Better turn back to the front page, brother. Ita going to get worae).
4. The Pins.—So caUed becauae they resemble pears, five of theae
"pins" are securely spiked to the floor at the end of each alley. (There ia
absolutely no foundation for the belief that these "pins" move poUtely to
neo side to make way for the approaching baU).
5. The Ball Return.—Thla Is a device for returning balls. By
means of this contraption the pin-boy has Ita Innings, and many, oh many
are the crushed fingers to vouch for thla.
6. The Pin-boy.—Two legs and two arms visible on clear days at
the end of the alley. No shot ahould be made until thla hybrid) makea ita
appearance at ita spedfledposltlon.
7. The Score Sheet.—Not a requirement. The game la houra faster
without lt. The malicious rumour that score sheets were* devised by far-
sighted aspirin manufacturers is absolutely correct.
SOCIA-4 NOTE
On entering the aUeys, you should make a rapid appraisal ot the
girls in tight sweaters and short skirts, and choose your aUey accordingly.
This move will completely destroy your opponents morale. Thla move wlU
completely destroy your opponent's morals. Don your bUnkera at thla point.
Having procured a satisfactory aUey, scream "PIN-BOY" at the top
of your voice. When thia monstrosity has taken its place, roU the first baU
down the aUey. If a strike is not secured on this shot, shriek Immediately
for the manager and complain bitterly, In strident overtonea, of 'the Inferior equipment. You will) then he regarded by all within earshot as an
expert and your prestige will rlae enormously.
The game having now got off to a glorious start, the player would
do well to keep thefoUowlng pointa in mind:
A. Never—(a) Bowl with a girl. A girl with a bowling ball ln
her hand ls no girl to play with.
(b) Admit that you are ln top form.
(c) Start acoring until a strike ia made.
(d) Bowl with a peraon from whom you might want to borrow
money.
Always—(a) Keep on throwing balls till the plna are down
and the pin-boys out.
(b) Act the part of a gentleman—use clean language If you know
any, help your opponent to his feet, and look at girls' facea!
(c) Inspect pins well, both Inside and outside the aUeya.
(d) Invent a rule to coVer every faux paa.
YOU ALL, YOU TWO
To the remaining readers these additional hints areofferred. Add
100 points to your score when repeating it to admiring throngs the next
day. Seldom attempt a game without first mentioning flrat a stiff shoulder.
Intoxicate your adversary.
Seriously though, bowling la a fine aport, and any night someone
offers either to set up beers or take ua bowling, you know what we'U do.
Dry, isn't It.
Ay, there's the rub.
• Convivus Scribit
BY OURSELVES
•    AT A LATE HOUR yesterday afternoon, aa they say in
the better foreign correspondent circles, there I was. Yes
there was I, caught with my guest column down.
In other words, there wasn't one. But you know how
promises are these days, what with Adolf, Joe, and Mary
Livingstone who's had me on pins and needles for months.
After last Tuesday's column by Orme Dier, which even
if I do say so ourselves, was a rip snorter, we sort of lapsed
into the paralysis of satisfaction. Incidentally, Orme got more
congratulations for that blurb than for any other thing he
has ever written.
It's absolutely unforgivable on our part, this not having
a guest. After, all we have to do is ask some one, say John
Kieran, or Grantland Rice. That's all we have to do, just ask.
So now it seems that we're going to have to be our
guest, which may be unique in Ubyssey history. We'll have
to write a column, one thing we solemnly promised not to
do, In the Interests of better journalism.
First we'll take a quick glance at the sports map.   Then
we'll take another one.   It seems we can go on looking all
day, but we don't see much except "It is rumoured", "Contrary to previous denials of contrary  announcements which
should have been cancelled", and "It is planned."
We look at football to find that after an historic battle
with the powers that be, we have a team with no definite
opponents to play. At present it seems that Manager
Gordy MacFarlane will be bringing out the ill-fated Vancouver Grizzlies for the Homecoming tilt, which last year
ended so spectacularly.
Basketball is stirring, that's about all we can say for it.
Rugby is organizing. Soccer is organizing. Co-ed sports
are practising. Pucksters are dreaming up trips. Rowers
are getting invitations.   Golf is organizing and practising.
Boring isn't it?
So, you see, (any similarity to persons living or dead is
purely detrimental) we can't give you much to read on our
page about actual sport.
But  we  promise  you   (there  we   go  again)   there'll  be
plenty popping  in a  week or two.   Then  one of the  most
unique sports staffs to mangle a quotation will give you the
loWdown.   We'll introduce them to you.
REVELATIONS
On our right aro lanky Jack Mathieson and Charlie
Claridge. Both are associate editors from last year's staff.
Jack is the fellow who writes about rowing, ice hockey,
boxing, minor basketball, and anything else you care to
mention. Chuck, of course, is the fellow who got so many
by-lines last season writing Senior "A" basketball and his
own gossip column, "Basket Bull". When basketball gets
underway, he'll be right back at you with the bull. We
can't ask him to report minor basketball, because he himself is a slicker with the Senior "B" squad.
The other male members of our staff are Harry Franklin, Bill Gait, and Jack Smedley.
Harry is the lad from California who headed for the
Ubyssey as soon as he hit the campus. He'll be bringing
you news from the Men's Gym under the title "For Men
Only".
Gait, an old friend of ours who is fast becoming a campus legend through his features of "Advice on Sport For
Beginners", will get alternate assignments on rugby and
soccer. The other stories will be brought you by Jack
Smedley, who used to dash off a bit of English rugby for
Magee.
Cn our left are the feminine members of the department,
Sherry Wilcocks and Terry Taylor. These two freshettes
have ambitions to write the best column on Co-ed Spotrs
ever to appear in this sheet. Be that as it may, their findings will come to you under the composite by-line of "By
Sherry Terry".
Now that Revelations is through for the day, we'll return to our dear old friend "Convivus".
ON TAP
Coming up soon, we pray, are columns by Jabez and
Orme Hall, Varsity sports correspondent for the Province.
Jabez doesn't know anything about sport, but we should
worry about that when he's writing it. In addition, Lionel
Salt has been pinned down as far as a vague promise.
Before we go and leave you-all, you two, standing there,
we must reveal the best) rumour of the week—this week, or
any other week. That is, that good old Jake, one Jack Mc-
Kinlay, the rightful owner of this space, is coming back to
the fold.
Vive La Kiiilay.
