•  NO PLANS have been made
by administration officials for
the  University in event of  the'

12:30 Tuesday, announced John
Green, editor of the Totem.
These workers are needed urgently right away and no previous
experience is necessary. There
are still some editorial positions
to be filled.
The need for workers is especially urgent this year because
of the increase in sise of the publication. The renowned annual
will be 300 pages long, an increase
of 30 pages over previous editions.
There has bsen no Totem published for the last two years because of a shortage of both staff
and materials. However, this yea.-
the Publications Booard is able to
again publish the book which, in
its last two editions, received the
coveted All-American Award of

the strike will be a reality or not
and that nothing can be planned
for the University until something definite is known.      ,
In the event of a strike it is
believed that University busses
will not run, as many student
drivers are themselves members
of the union. However, nothing
definite has been heard on this
Whether classes will be cancelled or not is not yet known.
If the strike becomes a reality
the UAS will be the only organization which has planned anything. The Air Force boys will
take part in a route march from
the campus to the Hotel Georgia.

BNA Act Amendment
Serious Step Says Weir
• SPEAKING OF mixed metaphors, Dr. G. M. Weir, head
of the department of Education tells of an amusing
sentence spoken at Ottawa. An "impassioned orator", speaking against over-regimentation, stated that if the government
"overlooks the cow that laid the golden egg, it will be sunk
higher than a kite."
Speaking at the Friday noon
meeting of the Parliamentary Forum, Dr. Weir said amendment of
the British North American Act
was a serious proposition since
"Section 93 of the B.N.A. Act is
the idispensable condition of Confederation."
He considered the problem of
Canadian education to be "one of
the most important that has ever
confronted the Canadian people
either before or after Confederation."
LSE President Gordon Bertram,
Prime Minister, interpreted federal jurisdiction as involving financial assistance and an advisory
program and policy. Ho maintained that Canada shows her political immaturity by not recognizing in this problem a main factor for Canadian unity.
Parliamentary Forum President
Jim Wilson, Leader of the Opposition, admitted that he was among
the "lowly laymen" and, at times,
"irrational." Dr. Weir's aim of
"more distributed education in
our democracy and more democracy in our education" could be
B.N.A. Act." he stated.
Provincial independence stimulates teachers, he said, but a federal controlled educational system would only provide "soft,
cushy jobs," typical of the "record
of this government in the past."
A standard ui such a large country as Canada must Inevitably be
a minimum standard, which is
"the thin edge of the wedge which
■ this government is using to centralize authority and to gain more

CUP to
Speed Up
(Editor-in-Chie/, the Ubyssey)
• MONTREAL, Jan. 4—
(CUP)—One of the most
successful Canadian University Press Conferences ever
held ended here just before
the New Year began with 28
delegates leaving behind
them a greatly strengthened
and more consolidated organization.
Attended by representatives
from lft of the 17 member papers,
highest attendance figure since
the formation conference In 1938,
the conference ironed out organizational difficulties and provided
means to speed up CUP service.
To promote inter-university unity
in Canada, the Canadian campus
column was revitalized and established on a firmer basis than ln
the past.
This column, featuring news of
all Canadian Universities, will be
run by the majority of CUP papers.
Most of the papers also agreed to
publish Nell MacDonald's column
"Ottawa Calling," which is written especially for the CUP and
features news from parliament of
interest to students. The Ubyssey
also secured the services of Mr.
MacDonald as its Ottawa correspondent for spot news stories affecting UBC students.
Exchange of cartoons between
the member papers was agreed
upon, with CUP bearing the cost
of engraving.
The conference endorsed the 1-
dea of a National Students Union,
such as the recently revived National Federation of Canadian University Students, and* the executive was directed to initiate relations with the organizaton.
A system of competition between
the member papers was agreed
upon by the conference, and committees delagated to canvas for
prize donors. Morris Belkin, publisher of the Ubyssey, has already
donated an annual $25 prize for
the best made-up CUP paper. The
conference learned that an endowment for the CUP may be given
by either the Rockefeller Foundation or the Carnegie Foundation, but definite details on this
are not known at the present time.
The conference also discussed
technical matters of the CUP news
service constitution and finances.
The McGill Dally conference host
this year was reelected national
president and congratulated by
the conference on its work as
head of the CUP.

Opportunity and University
The real test of any University is the
degree of opportunity for education which
it presents to the people. A University may
have high standards of education in the
sense of quality, yet it may fail in providing
the opportunity for people of every class to
partake of the facilities available.
Scholarships, bursaries, or even low
fees, may widen the opportunity for everyone to attend, but another aspect is in arranging of courses, arranging them not only
for everyday usage, but also to meet
exceptional circumstances that arise
Today's University must continually arrange regulations to provide opportunity for
men and women to attend whose lives have
been disrupted by the war. The first contingent of returned men have already ar
rived at university and many more will
come in the future. To arrange courses,
perhaps even to disrupt slightly the normal
univerity routine ,is the duty of every university to the returned men, whose normal
life has been disrupted by war.
In this respect the University of British
Columbia is well to the fore, even leading
the rest of Canada. The most recent example is the 100 or more servicemen who
are taking a half course this session. It is
co-operation like that given these men, the
ability and willingness shown by the administration to bend the old regulations and
make new ones to meet unforseen circumstances, that may earn for UBC the respect
and admiration of Canada—and the United
It's Raining Press Agents
One of the least known "fall guys" is
the poor fellow in charge of publicity for a
function. If the function is a success the
credit goes to the social chairman and if it
is a failure the blame is slyly shifted to the
publicity director.
The Ubyssey sympathizes with any
publicity director, since we are generally
acknowledged to be the campus publicity
organ, and thereby responsible for publicizing and all functions originating on the
campus. We try to give everyone a fair
deal, but there are times when even the
publicity hardened nerves of our senior
editors are shattered.
Students may have noticed the abun
dance of functions scheduled for January.
Each one function is worthy of extensive
publicity, but the Ubyssey has only so much
space on the front page. When several publicity chairmen ask for a six column headline on the front page for the same issue
and we have only room for one, then, frankly, the service is overtaxed. The only conceivable out we can think of is to print two
or three front pages in one issue.
Until someone can invent a paper with
several front pages, publicity directors will
have to be satisfied with the judgement of
the editors. If the function isn't what you
think it should have been, blame it on the
Ubyssey—we're used to it.
Arts Week and 2,000 Pints
Students will have another chance soon
to support another UBC blood drive, this
time a drive that appears to be better organized and more ambitious than previous
hopeful starts.
Next week will also see one of the great
experiments of the term—Arts Week. The
Arts executives have labored for weeks to
make Arts Week a success and during that
time have been plagued time and agani by
regulations, previous functions that have
priority, and all the disappointments and
jet-backs that accompany the realization of
a new idea.
Both the blood drive and Arts Week are
striving to overcome apathy of students, and
it is to be hoped that both affairs meet with
While both affairs are in the fluid stage,
we would like to suggest that they join
forces to help each other. Arts spirit could
be used to start the blood donor campaign,
and the blood donor campaign could help
Artsmen to back the blood drive would be
.rouse Arts spirit. The logical time to get
when Arts spirit is aroused and Artsmen
and women are looking for some way to express their faculty love. The sciencemen
have apparently given all their blood and
now its is Arts' turn.
• people and things • • •by Cal whitehead
•   STUDENTS of the University of British
Columbia have been called upon by the
Red Cross to donate 2000 pints of blood
through the Blood clinic in Vancouver.
When the Red Cross sets a quota for a
group, the quota is reasonable and just,
having been given much careful thought by
responsible persons. When the Red Cross
sets a quota of 2000 pints oi
blood   on   the   students   of
UBC, that quota is also reasonable   and   just,   for   the
same reason.
But a thing to be borne
in mind is that the Red
Cross would frown on 200
students each giving 10 pints
of blood to make up the total.
Rather, they would prefer
2000 students to give one
pint each.
In fact, they would insist on one person
giving only one pint at a time and no more
for at least another three month period. This
is to make sure that every patriotic person
would not go and have himself drained of
all of his precious red fluid.
More than 2000 UBC students will invade the downtown blood clinic at 608 West
Hastings in^a period of a few weeks.
You could walk along the campus and
say to the first person you meet: "You've
been down, eh? How did you enjoy it?"
To the second you could say the same.
To the third you might say a number of
things. If he was a war veteran, you would
give him a friendly smile. If he was considered by the Red Cross to be unfit for blood
donation, then you would offer to help him
across the Mall. (For only those in very ill
health or those who have maladies or diseases of the blood would be considered unfit.) If he was a donation dodger then you
would look at him in scorn.
It Ls needless to say that they would not
make a call for donations of blood unless the
need was extremely urgent. Increased fighting in Europe and elsewhere has resulted in
much bloodshed. Because of this bloodshed
(not a literal term but a stark reality), we
have been asked to contribute a paltry pint
of our blood.
Have you ever seen a man with only
one leg or arm? The man with one leg walks
with much effort on his good leg and two
clumsy crutches, the man with one arm has
to do everything with only one arm. If you
have any thoughts of not donating your
blood, think of one more man returning to
Canada minus an arm or leg—or not returning at all.
Think of confessing to him that it was
because you did not donate your pint of
blood, the plasma that would have saved his
limb was still inside your body. Try to tell
him you did not know.
The drive on the campus is being organized by the War Aid Council under the leadership of Ted Chambers. It is a drive worth
the efforts of every student on the campus.
In this campaign you do not give money
to get entertainment, you give your blood
to save lives.

wrong Army great coat from the
Arts Common Room last year, with

Synchronizer Allows
Flash BombPhotography
Special to the Ubyssey
electronic control that automatically, synchronizes a new type
shutter for aircraft cameras with
the bursting of a flash bomb, thus
enabling military observors to
photograph from high altitudes
and at night the destruction caused by their explosives, has been
developed through the collaboration of General Eelectric and The
Folmer Graflex Corporation.
Use of this unique control permits the camera to take advantage
of the peak illumination of the
bomb by beginning an exposure
in approximately 1-100 of a second
after the flash bursts.
After the desired exposure time
has elapsed, the control closes the
shutter of its own accord.
At the same time the camera
gets ready for another picture, thereby saving the observer
precious minutes and permitting
another picture to be taken auto
matically as soon as the next
bomb explodes.
Brains of this robot control is
a sensitive photoelectric cell that
acts on the light impulse coming
from the bomb. When the flash
explodes, the photoelectric cell
picks up a light impulse, amplifies
it and transforms it into a current
to which the shutter responds In
less than 1-500 of a second.
By using this ingenious combination, an aerial camera, otherwise of use for daylight photography only, can be converted into
a camera capable of taking night
photographs of the ground ln
great enough detail to permit the
.closest military study.
Small enough to fit into a hat
bag and weighing only nine
pounds, this robot device was designed especially for use on reconnaissance planes and bombers.
Both photoelectric cell control and
shutter are shock-proof ln construction,   .

Boarding House
Problem Worse
Starting 1945
• THE boarding-house situation is becoming worse,
although there was no problem in September. Now the
need for rooms exceeds the
supply, according to Dean
However, there is a short light-
housekeeping list, but the situation is changeable.
The problem is being solved by
city students taking In their
friends as boarders. If students
know of any available rooms,
please inform the Dean of Women's office concerning women
boarders and the Registrar's office
concerning men.
Although the list may not come
into Immediate use, it may be
used in the future.
The permanent solution to the
problem will be the building of
student boarding-houses. .

Rocket Gun Barrels
Made From Plastic
Special to the Ubyssey
• PITTSFIELD, Mass, Jan. 6—
The barrels of flying bazookas,
which the Army Air Forces have
installed on the Thunderbolt and
other types of fighter planes, are
made from a special paper plastic
and the Byron Weston Company,
it was announced with approval
of the War department here today.
Thousands of these offspring of
the famed infantry bazooka, have
been produced in the General Electric plant in Lowell, Mass.
Plastic was used because it is
lighter than other types of material and better adapted for this
job. What resins were used was
not revealed other than that it is
fire-resistant to withstand the
fiery blast of the rocket missile
when launched;
Army officials have referred to
fighter planes carrying flying bazookas as "flying artillery." In
France these planes were credited with contributing to the destruction of the German 7th Army
ln its retreat from the Falaise pocket.
Firing of the flying bazookas is
controlled by the pilot in the same
manner as he'fires his 50-caliber
wing machine guns, by pressing
a trigger on the stick. The bazookas, or airborne rocket launchers
as they are called officially, are
mounted under each wing, three
in a cluster. The weight of the
rocket installation is approximately 450 pounds, and the walls of
the barrels are about one-fourth
of an inch thick. All six of the
barrels may be fired at the same
time or they may be fired individually. Also the rocket projectiles may be used as bombs and
dropped on a target.
It has been predicted by Lt. Col.
H. L Donlcht of the Army Air

think that's a strange mixture you should meet the team that
went up there in the holidays, amongst whom most of those
expressions gamed a form of popularity.
While their older brothers were travelling further afield
the Thunderbugs headed up the coast and invaded Powell
River for two games during a three day stay.
Leaving Vancouver at midnight on the 26th the boys
spent a rather restless 7 hours on that palatial flagship of
the CPR fleet, the Princess Mary. Unfortunately we couldn't
get berths but everyone got at least 10 minutes sleep.
Getting off the boat into a pouring rain the boys
were rather hurt to find no band to welcome them, but as it
was just 6:30 a.m. we sat on the wharf and waited for the
fanfare. After about an hour a large gremlin appeared and
welcomed us, and the boys dispersed to try and get a little
Thunderbugs Suffer Defeat
That night we played the High School team and just
dropped the game by a 15-13 count. The tilt was featured
by its roughness. Most of the team suffered bruises and one
of our men had his nose slightly bent.
A crisis occurred at the end of the third quarter. The
crowd was insulting the referees rather freely :and finally
one of them took exception to the razzing. With 15 seconds to
go in the quarter he threw his whistle to one of the spectators
and stormed off the floor. What's more he wouldn't come
Much of the loss can be attributed to our lack of sleep.
As one of the boys said, "I saw my check alright for the first
quarter, but after that, things got a little dim."
By Thursday afternoon we'd caught up on our sleep, and
we were taken through the mill. In spite of the expressed
desire of several of the team, we didn't find any cellulose.
Most of our interest was in the sawmill. It's a very convenient
place to get rid of your enemies, and the fact that we all came
out in one piece is a tribute to the fine feeling amongst the
members of the team.
They Beat The All-Start
That night a party was given to which the whole team
was invited. Everyone had an interesting and enjoyable
evening, and that's where Moitle came in. Just where she
goes out is another question, and for the answer you'd better
see "Twitchy", our all-star guard.
Friday night we played an all-star team. In' gratitude
for the fine treatment we received, the boys went all out
and gave one of their best exhibitions of how to play hoopla.
Working a simple blocking offensive we rolled to a very
satisfying. 40-28 victory.
We got on the boat soon after the end of the game and
having, by luck, obtained berths for everyone, we slept like
tops coming down.
On behalf of the team I'd like to thank all those people
in Powell River who went out of their way to make our
stay so pleasant. We recommend their hospitality to any
other team that wishes a good trip.

student opinion definitely in
favor of identical hours for service training parades. The
general opinion Is that such a
move would be beneficial to the

As the situation now stands,
social activities can be held on
two nights of the week only
so   as   not   to   conflict   with'
It has been suggested that

problem and cither co-ordinate
the times of parades or furnish
an explanation why such an
Improvement may not be Introduced.

and said:
