GIRLS, you too will swell with pride like this average
young Canadian coed if you donate 12 pints of blood to
the Red Cross like she has.
Kisses   To   Raise
Corpuscle   Count
The battle of the Blood is on! The Faculty of Medicine
has challenged students in the School of Medicine to a "Corpuscle Collecting" contest.	
The Blood Drive starts next
week in the Armory. All the
blood used in B.C. during that
week will be from the full-
flowing arteries of UBC students. The quota is 2000 pints.
With 6313 potential donors
wandering around this campus,
it is expected that the quota
will be well exceeded.
The time to roll up your
sleeve and find out if that's
blood or water that you've
been thriving on, is 9:30 to
4:30 any day from October 3
to 7 inclusive.
A new addition to the Drive
this year is a Kissing Booth
. . . details available at the Armory next week.
And remember, Meds and
Eds, the fight is on! R.H. Fair-
burn and Gill Middleton, first
and second year presidents in
the Faculty of Medicine, have
thrown out the challenge for
the School of Education to accept, "that is, if you, think
you can!"
Registration Breakdown

The total number of students attending UBC now
stands at 6313, A. J. Parnell,
assistant registrar announced
"However, these figures
cannot be considered as final,
as people are still register-
and others are dropping out,"
he said.

The Big Four Foreign Minister's conferences and AMS
general meetings have a common denominator confused
But with all respect to Molotov, Dulles and Co., we must
give our general meetings a slight edge. We would venture
to say that the budget discussions at the Fall general AMS
meetings are the most singularly uninformed discussions in
the world. Never do so many talk so much while knowing
Inevitably there is the fire-breathing spokesman for the
club or undergraduate society that has had its budget cut. Does
the fact that the group he so vehemently represents had more
money during the previous year than it could spend bother
him? For the benefit of you who have never attended an AMS
general meeting, and judging by attendance figures that includes most of you, the answer is "no."
Then there is the aspiring politician who goes wingy at
the sight of a captive audience and starts spouting like Premier W. A. C. Bennet during an Okanagan by-election. Does he
represent anybody? Has he studied the budget? The answers
are obviously "no" but where else is the budding backbencher
going to learn to make speeches?
Just when it appears' a vote will be taken up jumps an
engineering student and damns athletics. Soon the clack of
soccer boots are heard on the Armory floor and an athlete re-'
plys. The athlete knows nothing about the needs of the engineer and the engineer doesn't even care to know about the
needs of the athletic department.
Then a tweed-bearing lawyer gets into the act Two hours
Ifeter the quorum is challenged; the meeting is adjourned with
no action taken and everyone curses the Treasurer and his
In an attempt to alleviate this hilarious situation we are
printing the 1955-56 budget in the paper today—more than
three weeks before the Fall general meeting. We have also
attempted to explain the workings of the budget to you. More
discussion will follow in these pages before the meeting.
We ask you to study the budget and get the answers to
your questions from Treasurer Geoff Conway before the meeting. Maybe then we can have a meeting rather than an absurb
talkathon.      t
Door    Dilemna
The buildings on this campus are all well supplied with
doors. Doors are meant to open and close in order to let people
in and out. It seems only logical therefore to expect the doors
in our various buildings to swing on their 'hinges when we give
them the appropriate shove. Such is often not the case. Particularly at the Gym, Wesbrook and Biological Sciences buildings, students can be seen at almost any time of day wandering about from door to door like rats trying to find their way
out of a maze imposed upon them by some wacky psychiatrist.
It seems strange that a university that goes to great expense to see that students 'have soft sofas to flop on between
periods doesn't give a darn if these same students knock themselves block and blue running the gauntlet of locked doors
to get to classes.
Please, somebody, make with the keys!
Because Canadians are quicker to talk about national Independence than to put up
money to prove It, Canadian students are in longer ofloshig $115,«#e worth ef MfttAftrshipe
now being granted in the humanities and the social sciences. U.S. foundations Hut have been
giving tiie money are willing to continue doing to, hut only if it's matdwd %y some reasonable
fraction from Canadian sources.
Although it has had plently of warning, the federal gevewnnent is Hot yet Midy to do
anything about this problem. Eventually It hopes to do so, but HwanwMIe k is feumbly
hoping that the U.S. foundations can bo >u audit a* to carry on for one *»ote yoar.
Scholarships in Jeopardy are
the 130-odd awarded each year
by the Canadian Social Science
Research Oouncil and the Humanities Research Council of
Canada. Some are relatively
small grants for summer work,
others are year-round scholarships of up to two thousand
dollars apiece. They were established with the idea of offsetting the heavy emphasis on
scientific and technical research
in tiie distribution of scholarship funds. All the money was
put up by the Rockefeller and
the Carnegie Foundations,
which contribute 90 thousand
dollars and 85 thousand del*
lars a year respectively.
Ati the outset the grants
were quite unconditional. The
Rockefeller Foundation has
given about 12 million dollars
to various Canadian causes
since 1914, the Carnegie about
eight million since 1911. It*
seemed the most natural thing
ln the world, to all concerned
on both sides of the international border, that plans for
aid to the humanities in Canada should receive American
But then four years ago, the
Royal Commission on National
Development in the Arts, Letters and Sciences made its
report. It paid high tribute to
the generosity of the U.S. foundations to Canada, but it also
expressed some doubts. In the
opening section, which is generally supposed to have been
written by the present governor-general, Vincent Massey,
the report had this to say:
"We have gained much (from
U.S. aid). In this preliminary
stocktaking of Canadian cultural life it may be fair to
enquire whether we have gained a little too much ... Granted
that most of these American
donations are good In themselves, it does not follow that
they have always been good
for Canadians. We have not
much right to be proud of our
record as patrons of the arts.
Is it possible thit, beside the
muttifenCe Of a Carnegie or a
Rockefeller. Canadian contributions look so small that it,
seems hardly Worthwhile making them? Or have we learned,
wrongly, from our neighbor an
unnecessary dependence on the
contributions of the rich? . . .
Perhaps we have been tempted
by a too-easy benevolence, but
this leaves us in an undignified
position, unworthy of our real
power and prestige."
Of course the Massey commission intended these words
as a spur to Canadians, not as
a reproach, to open-handed Americans. Nonetheless, the U.S.
foundations were understandably nettled. If their "too-easy
benevolence" was putting Can
ada in an "undignified position," the error could be easily
corrected. They were impeccably polite and moderate in
their language, but their re-
Joinder to the Massey Report
could be boiled down into one
short rude sentence:
"Fat up er shut up."
The flustered and embarrassed research councils did their
best to find someone to put
up a respectable Canadian
share. Last year, fbr the grants
which cover the academic year
now about to open, they were
eble to scrape e small amount
together—the W. Burton Hurd
Memorial Foundation contributed 15 thousand dollars, various industrial companies such
«s Imperial Oil and Canada
Packers put in smaller sums,
and altogether about 15 percent of the total was raised
by Canadian sources. The foundation agreed to accept this
rather pathetic percentage as
adequate for one year anyway.
But the Canadian share was not
only lamentably small, it was
nonrenewable; these had been
one-shot contributions, not annual income. Plans for next
year, therefore, were still left
in the air.
One source of Canadian funds
which came immediately to
mind was, of course, the federal treasury. Cabinet ministers
were approached: Would the
Government put up an annual
lump sum of perhaps 100 thousand dollars for these scholarships? In that case the Rockefeller and Carnegie Foundations would probably be willing
to continue their donations on
the present scale, which would
mean almost twice as many
grants could be awarded.
Some cabinet ministers were
sympathetic, notably J. W.
Pickersgill and Lester B. Pearson, both of whom were scholarship students at Oxford in
the 1920s. But they found
grave doubts among their colleagues, especially those from
Quebec. These felt that a large
grant for scholarships in the
humanities and social sciences
would be just as unpopular in
French Canada as the Canada
Council which the Massey Commission proposed, and which is
viewed by some Canadians as
an invsion of the provincial
field of education.
True, the federal treasury
already awards university scholarships on a much larger scale
than the one proposed by the
Humanities and Social Science
({Research Councils. The National Research Council gives
about 250 scholarships a year,
running up to 2500 dollars each
and costing more than 300 thousand dollars, for postgraduate
work in the physical sciences.
Some of the Labor Department's vocational training pro
gram, which gives another 300
^thousand dollar's worth of
help to about WOO students and
apprentices, is ^attended to university work. Some 88 thousand war veterans went to
university at the federal gov*
ernment's expense after tho
war, and Ottawa Is still spend*
ing 200 thousand dollars a year
educating the children of those
who died on war service.
Why these things should bo
accepted without Comment, and
yet scholarships in the humanl-
ties should be opposed, ls not
quite clear. Maybe the apprehensions of federal pelittciana
from Quebec are exaggerated.
But for the moment at least,
the government doesn't want
to take any chances on exasperating Quebec's provincial sensibilities.
This fall the provincial premiers come to Ottawa for another full-dress conference on
fiscal arrangements, something
to replace the "tax-rental agreements" concluded piecemeal
with nine provinces after the
1946 conference broke down.
Quebec has never signed a tax '
rental agreement, but Ottawa
strongly hopes that the next set
of domdnion-provincial agreements will Include Quebec on
some mutually agreed terms.
Once the dominion-provincial
conference is out of the way,
advocates of the Canada Coun*
cil proposed by the Massey commission will make a real effort
to have the council set up. As
the Massey Report described
it, the council would consist
of 15 members who would
award a large number of scholarships in all fields except the
physical sciences, which would
continue to be handled by the
National Research Council. The
Massey commission proposed
that these scholarships, plus a
loan fund also to be administered by the Canada Council,
would give some measure of
financial assistance to ten thousand students, or about 20 percent of the present university
Meanwhile, though, the Humanities and the Social Science
Research Councils are in dire
straits. L. B. Pearson, Minister
of External Affairs, has many
old friends among the Carnegie
and the Rockefeller Foundation people; he has undertaken
to intercede with them to de*
lay a year cutting off the scholarship grants, lo give the gov*
ernment time to consider what
action it can take. Other ministers have made urgent appeals to wealthy Canadians for
stopgap .contributions. .But
whether or not these despar*
ate measures will Succeed, it's
too soon to tell. THE UBYSSEY

Coke officials lower rubber coke bottle from its conspicuous hiding place . .
Coca-Cola   Rises
To   New   Heights
The seven-foot-high rubber coke bottle stolen after the
Frosh reception last week turned up Thursday morning—atop
the ten-metre diving tower at Empire Pool.
The thirty-five-pound replica
used as a refreshment stand
display at the Ffbsh reception,
was stolen from the Armory
Sunday morning.
Reliable informants say the
coke bottle was spirited away
by two engineers, hidden in the
basement of the Chemistry
Building until Thursday morning, and then carried to the
top of the diving tower.
A pool attendant discovered
it at 7:30 a.m. Thursday, and
Coca-Cola officials were immediately  notified.
Four hours later, Coca-Cola
executives Ralph Hawksworth
and Ed Bates converged on
the scene, and "lowered' the
featherweight bottle from the
tower for the benefit of .a
hastily - summoned photographer.
Despite the inconvenience,
company officials were ecstatic
because of the publicity value
of the theft.
"Tell those engineers if they
come around tomorrow, we'll
give them another bottle to put
on top of the Birks building,"
said  Mr.   Hawksworth.
Students interested in qualifying for $2000 IODE scholarships are reminded that
full details are enumerated
on Page 393 of the UBC calendar.
Applications should be in
the hands of Mrs. R. R. Short-
reed, 402 Pender Street, not
later than October IS.
Additional information and
application forms are available at Dean Gage's office.

The letter also said, "At present the only Canadian Schools
of Physiotherapy are at Toronto, McGill and Edmonton and
the graduates of these schools
are needed in their own provinces."
On the subject of a School
of Physiotheray, President Norman A. M. MacKenzie said in
his annual speech to University
students  and  staff  last  week:
"We are under continuing
pressure to organize work in
the general field of physical
rehabilitation, physiotherapy,
occupational therapy, orthopaedics, and matters of that kind,
and these we will have to give
our consideration."
Although Jazzsoc earna
most of its own money, club
officials say they count heav*
ily upon the council grant; to
enable them to instigate plana
to present U.S. campus ftps
bands as well as big name wast
coast jazzmen like Dave Brubeck at UBC.
Says Jazzsoc president Wally
Lightbody: "We won't be able
to carry out these projects it
we don't get a reasonable grant
from council."
Second project planned by
Jazzsoc—to be carried out regardless of the size of the council grant—is the formation of
a 15 to 20 piece dance band.
The band—featuring a vocal
quartet—will open October 22
in the Brock lounge, playing
everything from mambos to
waltzes. UBC's only band will
also play at pep meets and

Scholarships of $2,500 each
tor candidates who have obtained the degree of Doctor of
Philosophy or the equivalent
in any branch of science or literature, and of $1,500 each in
the humanities will be awarded.
In the latter class, subject
of investigation must have been
selected and preliminary work
done completed, as the award
cannot be given to assist in
meeting course or exam requirements for Ph.D.
Applications and all supporting papers must be in the
hands of the secretary not later than January 1.

information can be obtained
from: Awards Committee, The
Royal Society of Canada, National Research Building, Ottawa 2, Ontario.
The term "literary" makes
many cringe. The magazine is
not designed to he 'high brow"
or even "low brow." Articles
are written with a downright*

screwed-up brows.

The 20 thousand dollar in*

the fact that -there is no allow*

You Can't Win... SNARL
Snarl-ism has taken root at
About a week ago, hundreds
of small cards were circulated
about the campus. With a turnabout, catchy motto, a new
movement dubbed snarl-ism
has wormed its way onto the
campus. Its prime purpose has
been to publicize the Thunderbirds, UBC's football team
coached by Frank Gnup.
Mutierings on the card go
like   this:   "You   can't   win.
SNARL! Life at UBC is trying!" On the back of the card
is printed the 'Birds schedule
for this year.
Snarl-ism     originated     with
Mike Jeffery,   second   member
at large of the Alma Mater Society. While working at "White
Spot",    well    known    drive-in
restaurant   about   town,   Mike
came   in    daily    contact    with
smile    cards    used    by    White
Spot. These  say   "Win  or  lose

Armed with sketches of his
plan, Mike went to see the management of White Spot. They
liked the idea and printed
5,000 cards at an approximate
cost of $100.
Although the cards have just
come off the presses, they have
already received much publicity. Vancouver Sun's Jack
Wasserman mentioned "snarl"
in one of his daily columns and
according to Mike Jeffery,
"Many cards have spread

The success of the cards has
been "tremendous", said Mike.
"It was much better than we
Mike   said   lie   hoped   snarl
cards would be printed annually. "More will be printed this
year if there is sufficient demand."

yet learned to "snarl" the right
way can pick up cards at the
AMS office.

Insecurity Plagues Lite
Of Postwar Japanese
Tha post-war Japanese are a materialistic and opportunistic people whose common problem Is that of pressing insecurity. That's the opinion of Pierre La Porte, an economics
student at Laval University who as one of the 21 Canadian
exchange students sent to Japan by the World University
Service, spent the summer in Japan.
Paul said that to the aver- # .     IOWfmp  wm  nol„  a  IKa,
age Japanese, the problem of H AMSIIICI   rtJild     P»rty Monday, Oct. 3 at 8 p

that of national economy or
political future.
"The Japanese don't want
to Americanize—but to democ*
racize," he said.
"They are striving for a democracy of their own type, one
Which will meet the needs of
their reconstruction program."
He said that the Japanese
educational system is very rigid as compared to the Canadian system. Education is
strongly stressed in Japan, universities are large and numerous but very crowded, and
scholastic requirements extremely high. The average Japanese Arts student attends
34 hours of lectures a week and
spends as many hours studying.
Campus social life tends toward open and friendly intellectual discussions rather
than that mad, gay life common on Canadian campuses.
Paul found that boy-girl relationships are based on intellectual rather than sexual
When asked his impression of
UBC Paul was rather evasive.
"I am very impressed by the
general scientific organization
of Vancouver and in the same
respect of the university," he
He stated that UBC offered
a more liberal program of general education than offered in
his province, and that the students are not limited to a formal education but are trained
in citizenship and business administration as well.
He was also Impressed by
the casual way UBC co-eds
dress. He spoke of Japanese
women as "charming, discreet
and having the ability to make
you feel great and important."
"Don't underestimate the Japanese women," was his advice. They are very intellectual
and it is a comon practice for
Japanese men to ask their
wives opinion before making
an important statement or decision.
But Western women still
have some qualifying attributes
to flaunt in the eyes of that
discriminating animal called
man. It seems that the current
opinion on the campus of several male students who have
visited Japan is that sweaters
look much better on Canadian
girls than on Japanese. I guess
we Westerners lack that intellectual approach.

This was the opinion voiced
by Housing Administrator Gordon Shrum at a meeting of
Acadia and YTC Camps Tuesday night.  •"" "* -
Dr. Shrum said that until a
new housing unit is built, the
shortage of space at the Camps
will be so critical that if one
of the huts were to burn down,
there would most likely be no
room at the camps to house
those displaced by the fire.

At  Acadia
News-hungry Acadia campers are keeping abreast of
current events these days, but some have stooped to dishonesty to do it.
Campus distributors of the
Vancouver Daily Province complained Thursday that an average of 40 papers a week are
being stolen from the "honour
box" at Acadia Camp.
The RCMP has not been
notified, oficials said, nor have
"plants" to catch the culprits
been placed on duty.
"But we are contemplating
such action if the thefts recur,"
one official said.
Honour box thefts are punishable by fines ranging from
five to 25 dollars.

The Shell-
Qut Kid
Seasoned Brock Hall observers are calling AMS Treasurer
Geoff Conway the "wonder-
boy" of campus finance these
t days; his revolutionary budget,
they say, reveals a talent for
managing money that borders
on the magical.
But the new budget, which
is pleasing just about everybody, comes as no surprise to
those who knew Conway before he began his term as AMS
In his younger days in a
Victoria grammar school, he
was known around the schoolyard as "Midas." He was famous for parlaying a 25 cent
allowance into five dollars before the weekend.
One famous story, still told
around tea-time at the Victoria
table in the caf, concerns how
Conway earned his bicycle.
It was around hallowe'en,
when the Victoria Kinsmen offered a bicycle to the lad who
sold the most shell-out tickets
in Victoria.
Conway, then a ripe ten
years of age, happened to have
a kindly uncle who brought
him copious quantities of chocolate bars, a scarce commodity
in those lean war-time years.
Seeing his opportunity, Conway let it be bruited about the
neighborhood that he would
trade chocolate bars for shell-
out tickets.
The word soon spread, and
as the contest came to a close,
half the moppets in Victoria
were working for the precocious capitalist of Oak Bay—
for chocolate bar wages.
When the day of the contest
finally arrived, Conway had
amassed twice as many shell-
out tickets as the rest of Victoria combined, so of course
he won the bicycle.
Twelve years later, he still
rides it occasionally. Says he
gets some of his best ideas that

This year's AMS $227 thousand dollar budget provide*
increased funds for all student activities.
The 1955-56 budget will fall into seven different categories
as follows:
Men's Athletics will receive $3.60 per student, a 40 cent
increase. Last year the athletic program showed a deficit of
$2500 which the administration carried. In spite of the tele*
vision contract being $1300 less this year it is hoped that
realistic budgeting will result in balanced books.
• Undergraduate Societies will receive a 20 cent per
student increase giving them $1.20.
• The National Federation of Canadian University
Students receives a 15 cent per student increase.
• Activities and Funds receives a 40 cent per student
increase over last year, providing 70 cents per student. This   •
increase gives $1000 to Special Events and a $900 subsidy to
the Leadership Conference.
• Publications Board gets a 25 cent per student increase. This gives them $2.10 per student. Benefits from the
increase will be a larger Ubyssey and three issues of the
Raven. There will also be a bigger and better Totem at a
lower price.
• Women's Athletics will get a five cent increase to
give them 43 cents per student. The added amount will provide an increase in activities.
• Clubs are receiving $900-or twice as much as in
1954-55. The Club increase will also be held in reserve until
Christmas when it will be distributed among the more active
• The 1955-56 budget is probably going to make more
people happy than any other AMS budget has ever done.

Thunderbirds   Fight  For      Fitba  To
First  Conference  Victory   Make   Debut
The University of British Columbia Thunderbirds will
open their 1955 Evergreen Conference football schedule on
the road this season when coach Frank Gnup takes his Birds
to Tacoma for a Saturday evening encounter- with Pacific
Lutheran College.
As always in Evergreen play,
the Birds will enter the contest
as underdogs. The Lutes, third
place finishers last season, are
a perennial football power.
While the Gnupmen were
holding the inept McGill Red-
men to a scoreless tie last Saturday, the Tacomans dropped
a tight 14-12 exhibition call to
the College of Puget Sound
Loggers and as a result tare
sporting a no win, one loss
season record.
Pacific Lutheran coach Marv
Harshman has a solid starting
backfield rounded out by halves
Glen Nusbaum and John
Fromm, and fullback Jack New-
hart, a hard runner and a
strong defensive player in the
CPS tilt.
It is reported that their ace
tackle, 225 pound Lynn Calkins, played himself into exhaustion in the opener, and
will be out of action against
the Thunderbirds, 235 pound
Lawrence Ross and 240 pound
Hugh Marsh have been nominated by Harshman to fill
Calkins' tackle spot. Weight
and inexperience characterize
the Lutheran line and the Lutes'
brain trusts hope to uncover
some bench strength in the
Bird game.
Both Ian Stewart and Roger
Kronquist will be in the Thunderbird line-up. Kronquist, ou*
of action with an injury, will
most likely be at quarterback
with   Stewart,   still   suffering
from neck and hand injuries
which affects his passing, expected to line up a fullback.
This would leave Ron Stewart free for duty in the line,
although Gnup may keep him
to spell off the backs, Bruce
Eagle, who was so outstanding in the Paraplegic Bowl,
will be at right half.
Good news for Qnup was the
return to the squad of Gary
Williams, who voluntarily sat
out the McGill game. The experienced Williams at left half
will round out the Thunderbirds starting backfield.
The line will be almost the
same aggregation that took the
field last Saturday with the
only change the possibility of
Charlie Kules, who sat out the
McGill game because of family
problems, returning to center
the Thunderbirds lines. Sivert
Erickson is the only lineman
out of action, a leg injury has
sidelined him for a week.
However, there is one big
change in the line from last
week. All the players have another game of badly needed
experience under their belts.
The Birds chance of returning from the South with a
win seems to lie in whether
they can come up with a passing attack, something they
have lacked all season. It can
be expected that the Gnup-
men's strong defence, unscored
upon by the McGill Redmen,
will hold Pacific Lutheran in
check and provide the base for
another "Gnupset."
The varsity soccer team will
kick off their 1955 season at
2 p.m. on Saturday against
South Hill at Memorial Park
Varsity, otherwise known as
the Birds, will show some new
faces in Clive Hughes, goalie;
Frank Iacobucci, Fullback;
Fred Green, Frank Sealy, Dave
Wood and Larry Anderson, forwards.
Returning lettermen are Ted
Smith and Ian Todd, fullbacks;
Ralph Phelps, Bud Fredrickson, Jack Butterfield, halves;
George Jack, and Bruce Ashdown, forwards. The team is
fortunate in having back the
services of Bruce Ashdown, *a
member of the Canadian Champion New Westminster Royals.
The UBC Chiefs, sporting a
new look that will pay off in
goals, open their season against
Vancouver General Hospital on
Sunday, 2:30 p.m. at the new
Mclnnes Field on the campus.
The Chiefs play in the fourth
division of the Mainland Soccer League.
To Scrimmage
As Varsity's rugby teams
round into top shape, about
70 ruggermen will get their
firts taste of game conditions
in a scrimmage behind the
Memorial   Gym.
There will be two games between selected teams, starting
at 12:30. Coaches Laithwaite
and Howell hope to get some
idea of their starting line-up
for the season opener October
