UBC ARMORY MUSIC Reservation Only
For Alum Banquet
The UBC Armory is a suitable place for the presentation
of fine music.
This fact was proved Thursday evening at the concert
presented there by Uie Don Cossack male choir. In the opinion of the capacity audience, the especially fine acoustical
qualities of the building more than made up for its lack of
cultural atmosphere.

on the campus will have contributed approximately $350 to tht

huts will bring back memories of
old Fairview shacks. Others, accustomed only to the Arts and
Science buildings will find the ex-,
panded campus a new adventure.
Members of these 'decade' Classen will present a variety of entertainment at the alumni dinner.
Among the expected features is
ii film showing the dev«opment
of the University since its birth,   .
double quartet singing campaign
songs of the "trekkers" of 1922.
;i sing-song, and a variety show
presented by the grads of '46.
Executives of the classes concerned are:
Sherwood Lett, '16.
Joe Kanla and Bert and Mrs.
Wales, '26.
Bruce Robinson, '36.
Garry Miller, '46.
In 1916. there was only one faculty,  Arts and Science, with  Lt.
Col. Lett president of the graduating class that year.
Later it was decided to elect a
president for each faculty. Hence
in 1926 Dr. Joe Kunia represented
the sciencemen, and Bert Wales
By   1936,   one president   was  elected  from all faculties,  this was
Bruce Robinson.
Last year, Tom Scott was the
president of the grad class, but
since he and secretary Edith Katz-
nelson are both out of town, Garry Miller, last year's treasurer of
AMS undertook to represent his
fellow alumni on Homecoming
D y.
The three thousand people In the
audience applauded Mr. Gordon
Hilker when he commented before
the concert that "This Armory may
not be the most beautiful concert
hail in the world, but this is Vancouver."
Mr. Hilker told the gathering that
the scheme to use the Armory for
large concerts had been developed
partly in order to create a more
reasonable ticket scale. He explained that the price range would
remain the same as for concerts
presented downtown, but that more
lower priced seats would be available in the Armory.
He apologized for the fact that
Thursday's concert did not start on
time, but attributed the delay to
difficulties connected with using
the Armory for the first time.
UBC students participated ln the
concert in several ways. Members
of the Symphonic Club acted as
ushers, other students worked at
setting up the building for the
show, and 550 undergraduates
heard the concert at a reduced
price by presenting their AMS

It m quite likely that the welcome extended each year by the undergraduates of
the University of British Columbia to the
alumni on the occasion of Homecoming Day
is a warmer one than that accorded to any
other group of college graduates.
Ibe reason is a simple one. The undergraduates know that throughout the university's history each graduating class has
left a richer heritage for the students that
are to follow. They appreciate the fact that
it would be difficult to find a university
where the students themselves have contributed so much to the growth of their Alma
Today, during the most sentimental celebrations of any college year, undergrads will
be greeting grads with more than mere feelings of sentiment. They will be greeting the
alumni also with a sense of appreciation, for
they realize that because of tiie sacrifices of
those talums the UBC students of 1946 are
enjoying a better college life than would
have been the case had their predecessors
been content merely to receive rather than
to take and to give.
In listing the efforts of former undergraduates to improve the University of B.C., the
stress is usually placed upon such tangible
rewards as Brock Hall, the Stadium, the
Armory, and the Old Gymnasium. Because
today's Homecoming also marks the renewal
of the campaign to achieve the greatest of all
student goals—the construction on the campus of a B.C. War Memorial Gymnasium—
that stress is certainly not out of place.
At the same time, however, it would be
fitting not to lose sight of the fact that UBC's
alumni have handed down to present undergraduates possessions of less tangible worth.
In such a category should be placed the tradition of co-operation between students on
one side and the faculty and administration
on the other, or the most Independent and
comprehensive system of self-government
enjoyed by any student body.
As another one of the more intangible heirlooms—an independent student newspaper
responsible to students—the Ubyssey is
proud to add its loud voice to the greeting
of "Welcome, Grads!" which is heard about
the campus on this day—Homecoming, 1946.
The Children's Hour    - »* "»BEWLEY
Good morning, my turpitudinous little ivy
trogdolytes. A wet, happy, nag-free weekend to all of you married couples.
Speaking of marriage, we have been casting about on the suspicion that same odd
little cultural institution in our community
might be languishing. A bit of snooping
around between the pages of that morose
academic manifesto, the University Calendar, seems to indicate that something is horribly wrong.
And would you believe it, now, but this
throbless threnody, this same book with not
a single picture in it, this very same tome
which devotes two column inches to Dairy
Mycology and the study of molds that take
part in the ripening of cheese—search as you
like, but nowhere in it will you find that
magic little word: "love".
No sir, not once. Not even under Historical Sketch, Physical Education requirements
for Men and Women, or University Extension. Hiere must be around 140,000 words
in that book, and the word "love" doesn't
appear once. Why? Doesn't it rate? Do
we have to be THAT academic?
It doesn't seem right, somehow. We have,
mining around out here on this super-sand-
spit on the romantic Gulf of Georgia, some
850# human souls. Maybe some of them
ARE sub-human, but anyway, they do have
souls. You'll not deny that. However atrophied. And if there's anything to the old
song which goes: "Ah, It's Love and Love
alone the world is seeking," then they'd better not look in our Calendar for it. It ain't
Well, then, stretching a point and granting
that these 8500 souls are human, it would
seem pretty certain that a good part of them,
resting, as they are, somewhere between
puberty and palsy (and closer to the former,
for the greater part) ought to have a passing
interest in Love. I bet if you ran them
through a spectokineticscope, then followed
it up with a shot at the new Stanford-Binet
psychoReBopanalograph test, through an
elctro-Freudian screen, you would get a
Measurement of Interest chart that would
reveal their yearnings in the following order:
i. Food; ii. Money; iii. Shelter; iv. Love;
v. Academic Attainment; and so on.
Interested in Food, eh? Well, we've got
Field Crops, Animal Diseases, Cheese-Making and Greenhouse Practice, to name a few.
Money?—See Money and Banking, Public
Finance—help yourself.
You have those? It's Love you're Seeking? Ah, wisht, I'm sorry—I'm afraid it's
not i)xx the curriculum. Perhaps, instead,
you'd care for a little spectroscopy, refracto-
meters, astrophysics, elementary particles,
thermionics, Zeeman Effect, gas liquefaction,
multilateral trade, purchasing power parity,
Victorian poetry, blowpipe analysis, geomor-
phology, complex variables and elliptic functions—No? Ah, then, I suppose you'd not
be interested in chordate anatomy, limnology,
or the chemistry of sea water—nossir—
nothing on Love. It isn't a course, and I'm
afraid it isn't certainly a course leading to a
Degree.   Sorry.
Ah, well, this Ls but romantic drivel, this
search for Love in a Calendar. Let's go find
it in it's natural habitat—behind potted palms
oi on a Greyhound Bus.
Who would be such a fool as to look for
a course in it, anyway? And if. there were
such, who would give it—Adam LeZonga?
The other Faculties would make an unholy
mess of that subject—Agriculture would
treat it as seed and crops, Commerce would
major it's mercenary angles, the biologists
would count its toes, the physicists sniff at
it for wave motion and the psychologists,
worst of all monsters, would deduce its emotions by testing for salt on the palm of the
hand.   The blind men and the elephant.
And if we were mad enough to have a
Course in Marriage, with a chapter on Love
included, we should thereafter have to listen
to earnest young women saying: "Well, I
think you have to WORK at marriage; I
regard it as a partnership . . ." Quite forgetting the old business rule that a partnership is the worst form of arrangement you
can get into.
And anyone who needs a course in Love
is manifestly unfit for employment in that
field, anyway. Gad sir, your credentials disqualify you!

. . omens and portents
The influence of college, graduates on the public's
opinion towards a university cannot be overestimated.
That is particularly so in British Columbia, a province
noted for its lack of interest in higher education.   The fault
may lie in the fact that many of UBC's graduates are lured
away to other parts of the continent by promises of better
jobs and higher pay.
But B.C. needs her graduates. Business and industry may not require
their education and talents, as yet, but they are necessary for the well-
being of the province, and the university.
Outside of Vancouver, and even in the city, there is a very definite
feeling of antagonism towards UBC. Unlike the eastern American states,
this province waa not settled by people who believed in the importance
of education and would go to any ends to obtain it
Before the war, and perhaps even now, only .three par cent of the
population of British Columbia was college graduates. Of course, not
everyone wants to go to college, nor can they. But three per cent ia still
a very small number.
And of the other 97 per cent, there is a large amount who are against
university education and coUege students.
Such opinions may not be so apparent in Vancouver, but if you have
lived in a small interior town or on the Island, you would notice such
unfriendly feeling. Only in towns which support a consolidation of
college graduates ia there much Interest shown in university activities.
This situation may be eased when the present top-heavy enrollment
at UBC leaves the university, provided there ia no mass exodus to the
United State* or Eastern Canada.
But the fact remains that the lighter momenta of the university are
overpubliclzed, and the good that the university or Its graduates aooom-
plish goes unnoticed.
Our grads can help in influencing provincial support and approval of
the university. This campus has always been particularly fortunate in
producing an active and aggressive group of undergrads when the need
arose.  But we cannot cover the whole province.
It is tip. to the graduates to do that. If they maintain their enthusiasm
ln the university, through the Alumnae groups, and interest their towns
in the university activities, then they are carrying on the standards they
set when they built the first gym, the stadium, the Armory and the Brock.
Week-end Review
And Preview
This week I've spent worrying
nhout Edmund Wilson. I meant to
write simply a review of his re
cent book of short stories, "Memoirs of Hecate County," which haa,
1 understand, been banned not
only in Boston but in most other
American cities as well.
I haven't been worrying about
this however. It will no doubt increase the sales of the book, and
though it is a sign of our general
level of pruient stupidity and en,
otional dishonesty, that has not
been bothering me specially this
"This brilliant work of fiction,"
the cover blurb says, "describes
the ad ventures of an egotist among
the bedevilled." Now, this does
contain the kernels of what has
been bothering me.
Certainly the people Mr. Wilson
describes are bedevilled. They
seem to exist for him only In this
fashion. You and I may occasionally think while talking to some-
*        *
From my reading of Mr. Wilson's
literary criticism a feeling of respect for his ability to handle
words has, in the past, been evoked in me. But words are not detached counters capable of irrelevant groupings. Words are signs
for objects of our experience and
when associated in a pattern llkb
that of the short story they convey meanings. So it is, I feel,
legitimate to criticize the meaning
conveyed by the author a* capable of distorting his form and
rendering it finally worthless as a
significant work of art.
These stories are glib—brilliantly glib, if such a category is per-
mlssable. "The Man Who Shot
Snapping Turtles" can be taken
a? an amusing squib, or it can be
taken as a parable impUclty con-
one, "how poorly her face is tiea
together really," or "can she know
how flat this particular moment
U" But also we know occasional
tenderness and understanding for
and from other people, and a feeling of oneness with them in their
bedevilmentf. But far MK Wilson's

there is to say about people in
stead of sudden social caesurae.
And yet people, we have been
told, made a God in their own
image? Surely there must be, even
in bedevilled Hecate County, far
removed as it is from the simplicity of Greece, some remnants of
the Aristotelian virtue of hurna..
magnificence? But can a strictly
Egotist see in other people what
he does not contain within him-
stlf? And what is the essential
point-of-view of the Egotist which
prevents him from seeing people
except in these brittle, brilliantly
glossed terms?
taming Mr. Wilson's own values
which are no longer amusing.
"Glimpses of Wilbur Flick" affords the careful reader not only
uneasily tolerant Egotist who
doesn't quite recognize his own
inefficacy in that of Wllber Flick.
"Ellen Terhune" and "The Mil-
hollands and their Damned Souls"
are the best things in the book
I'd say. "The Princess" for whom
the book has been banned, is ik»
really worth the fuss, you know.
The Egotist's amatory oalisthenic
are supposed to have great social
significance contained in their erotic manouvres. But though "Anna," the dance-hall girl, comes
through as a person at moments,
the social comment Is neither particularly subtle nor noticeably significant.
The last story in the collection
is "Mr. and Mrs. Blackburn at
Home" which contains an 8% page
diatribe in French lumping tht
alleged amorallty of the Stalinist
regime with that of the Nazis.
Apart from this dubiously helpful political message the story, as
a story, falls to pieces alarmingly
without Wilson's usual adhetlve
"Time's" final comment on the
book was, "Evil is as vivid through
the book as a bushful of snakes.'
This presence of Evil would be
justifiable in a book choosing such
an expert from Gogol as its sole
preface, It isn't because of this
permeating presence of Evil that I
finally deny the validity of Mr.
Wilson's book, but for the sterility of the moaning he assesses as
•        •
Against this I would quote from
an earlier Wilson who concludes
his "American Jitters" (1931) partly In these words: "I appeal to
the other professional theorists
and artists to be careful how they
play the game of the capitalists.
It is bad for their theory and their
art to try to adapt themselves to
a system which is the enemy of
theory and art. Their true solidarity lies with those elements who
will remodel society by the power
of imagination end thought — by
acting on Ufe to make something
new; not with whose work is
done and whose grip has failed
and who are now carried along
merely bv the force of a slackening momentum to which they are
unable to supply fresh force.

Arrangements for the moving of
married veterans into the soon-to-
be reconverted army huts at Little
Mountain were outlined during a
meeting of the Canadian Legion,
University Branch, held on Thursday at 12:30 p.m. in Ap. Sc. 100.
The suites, when completed, will
resemble those at Westbrook camp.
Each unit will consist of a kitchen,
living room, bathroom and bedrooms proportionate to the sis* of
the family. Prospective tenants
must provide their own furniture.
Plans are under way for kindergarten, medical, sports, and social
recreation facilities.
Although hut reconversion ^vill
not be complete until early spring,
families will be permitted to move
in as each suite is made available.
For this reason a system of priority, based on need and date of application, has been devised.
Any student veteran who has not
yet filled out an application form
is advised by Legion officials to
call at the Legion branch office as
soon as possible to asure early accommodation.

Thousands of people earn their living in the
manufacture of fine china which is concentrated
in a small industrial area in north Staffordshire
in England. From more than fifty factories in
this area, English china is exported to all parts
of the world.
Thousands of Canadians in the Sudbury and
Port Colborne areas earn their living producing
Canadian Nickel. Other thousands all over
Canada find employment in the production of
lumber, power, steel, machinery and supplies
purchased by the Canadian Nickel industry.
Less than three per cent of the Nickel produced
in Canada is consumed in Canada. The rest is
exported, and the money received helps to pay
for English china and other products necessary
to good living in Canada.
Canada cannot keep on importing from other
lands unless Canadian goods are exported.

call- em
It's really marvellous what a Uttle pubUcity can't do for
a university. No sooner does the Alma Mammy take up a nice
Uttle game Uke American Football than the local scribes (or
should I «ay, one in particular) starts making largesome
hints about Varsity challenging the winners of the Big Four
loop which is currently in action around these parts.
Now there's no doubt about it that it would certainly
just go to show where all the football power Ues in our fair
city, but as yet there has been very Uttle talk about such a
game around the campus.
In fact, in the humble opinion of yours truly, there geems
to be very Uttle interest in the matter around here. It seems
that the Big Four would be very interested in receiving a
challenge from the Blue and Gold but interest is not that
high around these parts.
The East It Out
In fact, two more possibiUties have been scratched off
the list of post-season games. In the last month, two eastern
coUeges have been sounded out about the possibiUty of
"bowl" games. Both McMaster and Toronto were intereated
in the tilt but the whole idea had to be dropped for Several
The «»»*« reason is that our grandstands wiU not hold more
than 5000 at the most if everyone ls using tha least amount of
gpace possible. And what does it cost to bring thirty-two men
out hart from Toronto? Believe It or not, friend, it comes to
slightly mort than $5000.
Therefore it seems rather unlikely that the game would
even make costs. The second reason is that with the Thunderbird team playing this American code this ytar, they
would not be ready to play a team that has been playing
Canadian rules aU season.
It's Quite A Problem
And then again there's the problem of where to put an
eastern team when they do get here. There's the problem of
what to do with the weatherman if he decided to favour us
with a foot of snow the night before the game was scheduled to come off.
Yes, there are a great many problems for a University
trying to back a football game with an eastern team at that
time of year. There is very Uttle question in the minds of
the grid moguls that the game would draw a great crowd.
A game between the Toronto squad and Varsity would
be headline news across the continent—the top college team
of the West meeting the top Eastern team in a battle for
Canadian college supremacy. What a story for a newspaper
Imagine ! !—Mexico, Yet
Bu then, who knows? Ine Varsity squad may end up
playing in Mexico for all we know. There was some talk
about the B.C. team going down south of the American border to represent Canada in a bit of a competition. But then,
that's rather a tough assignment for the campus kids when
they have only played one year in the American loop.
And talking about American grid and the local talent reminds us that today is the big day for the Kabat-kids. College
of Idaho invades the campus today to meet the 'Birdmen in
their third Conference game of the schedule.
Although it seems rather hard to believe, the Blue and
Gold Thunderbirds still have a chance to finish in a tie for
second place providing that they win the rest of their games.
Not Too Muck Help
Don't sneer, brother. It is actually possible. Of course,
according to the grandstand quarterbacks, of which there
seems to be an endless supply in the stands this year, Varsity
couldn't do it. But just ask the boys who know.
According to the moguls who know their footbaU, Varsity
has been improving steadily in every game to date. The team
from Whitman was actually amazed that Varsity could play
that kind of football when they have only played three games
before that time.
AU that we have to do is get in there and give the boys
our backing with all the lungs possible. If the guy next to
you looks at you queerly, don't let it throw you.
As long as you're yelling for Varsity, you're fighting for
the boys.  That's what counts, brother.
