"Memorial Before Utility
For Gym" Stresses Legion
Declaring that the War Memorial theme takes priority over
the War Memorial Gymnasium's utility design in event of conflict as to cost or design, members of the Advisory Committee
recently tabulated results of their informal- discussions for the
guidance of the general committee and the Board of Trustees,
War Memorial Gym.

the Building Planning Committee.
Memorial theme should suggest more
than a "Hall of Heroes", the committee advised, and it should form
an intrinsic part of the building's
architecture. This would necessitate
spending more money; also it may
mean a slight sacrifice or adjustment
of the utlilitarian efficiency of the

House of Commons building as an

No expense should be spared to
make the War Memorial Gym a sacred
chapel of remembrance, the committee report reads. Recommended is an
altar to be constructed within the Hail

built in a suitable location where Remembrance Day observances could be
The Legion committee advised that
the main hall have an atmosphere
which would make it suitable for
speeches, ceremonies, convocations
and concerts as well as fulfilling its
primary function as a gymnasium,
The committee feels that if their
ideas regarding the Memorial aspect
are taken seriously by the Building
Planning Committee, extra support
might be tapped for the construction
of a Provincial War Memorial in the
form of a gymnasium.
An early meeting of the full Building Planning Committee was urged.
'1 think you're supposed to kiss
me" said pretty Pat Drope to Chancellor Eric Hamber as he crowned
the nominee of Gamma Phi Beta sorority Queen of the 1947 Mardi Gras.
After the presentation of a silver
compact by co-chairman Hank Sweat-
man, Miss Drope and the Chancellor
took a turn about the floor while a
capacity attendance looked on.
A Regina girl, Miss Drope is graduating in Arts this year, but will return for a post graduate course in
Social Work.
Coeds Offer Aid
In X-Ray Survey
Women members of the various
campus organizations will act as receptionists during the X-Ray drive
in February, according to a decision
reached by the Women's Undergraduate Society executive recently.
Panhellenic Council, under Roma
McDonald, will provide the girls the
first week of the campaign, February
2 to 8. Members of Phrateres will
work the second week, with Home

Barbara Kelsberg, president of WUS.
Lawyer To Address
Democratic Forum
Leon J. Laclner, K.C., prominent
Vancouver barrister will address the
first meeting of the recently organized Democratic Forum Wednesday
noon in Arts 106. His topic will be
"Our Economic System" covering the
highlights of the whole field which
comprise the aims of the club.
A native son of a pioneer family
who came to this province during the
famous Cariboo Gold Rush arriving
here in 1858 and a life-long student
of Economics, taxation and public
finance, Mr. Ladner is eminently
qualified to speak on this subject,
Following his graduation from the
University of Toronto he travelled
for a year on the continent studying
ecoonomic, social and political conditions, He served as an M.P. for Vancouver South  from  1921  until  1930.
Following Mr. Ladner's talk there
will be a ten or fifteen minute question period. All those students who
are interested in learning more about
our government institutions and our
economic system are urged to attend.
Youth Authority
Scores Housing
Inadequate housing facilities ace
one of the chief causes of juvenile
delinquency in the opinion of Mr.
F. C. Boyes of the Vancouver Normal
School, according to his Social Problems Club address delivered in Arts
100 last Thursday noon.
He explained how congested living
conditions led to juvenile delinquency and described the overcrowded
conditions in Vancouver today. "In
one home in the West End we discovered thirty families, all using one
bathroom." he declared. Our object-
tive should be "One home, one family;
and in that home no strangers," he
He described the agencies established for assistance, the Family Welfare Bureau, the newly formed Family Court, the Juvenile Court and the
Industrial Courts. Of preventitive
agencies he said, "If we could establish an adequate housing agency we
would accomplish much."
"Every year we are spending millions setting our most briliant graduate engineers to work to find ways
to salvage more of the waste product
of industry. Our delinquents may be
compared to this waste product. When
social engineers go to work on this
problem, we're going to do a great
deal with this 'waste product!" he

was received by the Elections Committee Saturday morning.
This is the only nomination received
for this office. Nominations for CSA,
Co-ordinator of Social Activities,
Junior and Sophomore Members do
not officially open until February 5.
Joy Donegani, Chairman of the Elections Committee, said Monday, "If

students interested in running for
AMS offices than those whose names
have been turned In."
Wednesday, January 29, is the last
day the Elections Committee can receive nominations for President and
Treasurer. Campaigning for these offices will commence Thursday at
nine a.m.

For Music Series
Ticket sales have already commenced for the first program in the University Concert Series, featuring Miss
Frances James, noted Canadian so
prano, scheduled to take place in the
University Auditorium on Sunday,
February 2 at 8 p.m.
The purpose of the series, according
to Legion officials, is to assist in the
fulfillment by the University of the
role of cultural leader and educator
oi the province.
Student interest is especially desired and to promote this, special
rates have been provided to encourage   maximum   student   attendance.
Tickets may be obtained at Kelly's

Solution for the housing problem
has been found for 19i homeless campus clubs.
A double raw of newly painted

the present need for doctors, need for
internes, and the critical need for a
provincial medical centre.
"The government spends 22V4 million annually on curatives for TB and
mental diseases alone," Pat Fowler,
vice-president of the Pre-medical Undergraduate Society told a reporter.
He said that a school at UBC would
form a center of medical research and
medical aid for the whole province.
B. C, Fowler pointed out, suffers
from an alarming deficiency of medical research centres, that even in Vancouver there were few, if any, such
large scale laboratories,
Appeals are to be made directly to
members of the Legislative Assembly.
All UBC students are asked to participate in the drive since "if medical
care is of interest to all, it deserves
support from all," Fowler said.
"We have it on unquestionable authority that the government can afford the expense."
A medical school would enhance the
prestige of the university as well, he
With regards to the quick establishment of the school, a grim, now-or-

To Be Held
First investiture of military awards
on the campus will be held in the
main lounge of Bvock Hall Wednesday at 3:00 p.m. when Lieutenant-
Governor the Honourable C. A.
Banks presents decorations to appox-
imately 80 student veterans.
Two women veterans will receive
decorations at the ceremony. University officials promise it to be one
of the most impressive and meaningful ceremonies ever to occur on the
University grounds.
It is expected that another investiture wil be necessary to present a-
wards to those veterans whose decorations and citations will not arrive
in time for the January 29 ceremony.
Recipients are requested by Dr. G.
M. Shrum to gather in the Mildred
Brock Room at 2:00 p.m. on the afternoon of the ceremony in civilian
dress. He has also requested that they
supply the Extension Department
with the names and addresses of
friends and relatives whom they
would tike to invite to the ceremony.
■* Refusing to sign the final report of the Constitutional Revision Committee, Stewart Porteous, member of the committee,

Spring Conference
Called For ISS
International Student Service will
hold a Canadian Conference in Toronto on February 22 and 23.
The last meeting of the Canadian
Committee decided that the need for
a national conference has been felt
for sometime through a desire, expressed on almost all campuses, to
expand the activities of ISS to include more than relief work.
Funds to cover the expenses of the
delegates will not be taken from the
general relief fund but shall be raised
by  a  private  subscription.
ISS Delegate
To Speak Here
Extreme astonishment and admiration of the growth of UBC in the
past four years was registered by
graduate Gordon Campbell when interviewed Monday. National executive secretary of the International
Student Service, Mr. Campbell has a
wide variety of contacts on all Canadian campuses through a personal tour
which is culminating in his return to
his alma mater.
"The general attitude of UBC in
universities across Canada is one of
amazement. Even in Detroit they're
asking about 'that man MacKenzie"'
he stated.
A member of the Canadian delegation which toured western Europe last
summer he stated that "We students in
Canada living in the 'lap of luxury'
scarcely appreciate conditions in Europe. Books are so scarce in Prague
that I saw students copying texts in
longhand. Their plight is a great deal
more real than ours.
"The ISS," he continued, "is a politically neutral and religiously impartial organisation which is a service in
the thirty-one countries in which it
operates. It is based on the principle
that books are not enough.
"The ISS considers the peace to be
dynamic and not a static condition
and in bringing students into living
contact through ptudy tours, student
exchange plans already formulated,
conferences and publications, it believes that ... it is making a practical
contribution to world peace.
Gordon Campbell will be speaking
in the Double Committee Room in
Brock Hall at 12:30 Tuesday, All
students are invited to attend.
made known to me until I was called
to sign the completed report,"
"Eligibility for student council offices had been changed only last year
and have not been tried," continued
Porteous. "It is not fair as election
committees are in full swing on the
basis laid down in the 46-47 handbook."
Porteous attacked a point in the
revision which states the requirements for president of the AMS and
adds that the president must not have
"previously held the position of president."
"If an ex-president is available he
should be permitted to run. The
purpose of the election is to find the
most able person."
Dealing with a paragraph of requirements for president of the Literary and Scientific Executive, Porteous
said, "There is no stipulation that the
student body may elect or nominate
chairman of the LSE."
An item in the article dealing with
the discipline committee, further invoked Porteous' displeasure. The item
dealt with the power of the president
of a student court to declare the
court closed to publicity.
The definition of a "Junior" brought
further displeasure from Porteous.
Ray Dewar, chairman of the revision committee, on gaining the floor
said, "Never before have I been asked
to appear before a committee and been
criticizd before having a chance to
defend the report."
"Mr. Porteous implied that I was
trying to rush through the report to
keep him from running as Junior
member," continued Dewar. "If he
had been at the previous meeting he
would have known of the final meeting, which he claimed he knew nothing about."
Dewar offered to explain any questions by USC members, and discussion
followed on esveral points.
A recommendation by Pat Fowler
urged the acceptance of the report and
the deferment of criticism of the
amendments until after the elections.
This recommendation was defeated,
and no definite decision was reached
by the meeting.
Fraternity Probe
Rejected By U of T
TORONTO, Jan. 27, (CUP)-Debate
at the University College Parliament
at the University of Toronto ended
in a vote rejecting an investigation of
alleged racial intolerance practiced by
The actual subject of the debate
was "Resolved that this house approves the investigation for alleged
racial intolerance by fraternities."
Heated comments were exchanged
by the various participating parties
in the debate. The speaker's statement that heckling would be allowed
from the floor within the limits
raised much criticism.
Legion Backs
Med School
By a decision of its executive, the
University of British Columbia Branch
72 of the Canadian Legion will ask
Legion Branches throughout B.C. to
give support to the UBC pre-medical
students' full and active campaign
for a medical school, Legion President Grant Livingstone announced
The UBC Legion states that they
will ask support by resolution and
local public action for implementation
of a resolution passed at last March's
provincial Legion convention. This
resolution was reindorsed by the B.C.
campus at the Dominion convention
when it was announced that the medical school would not be started this
year, and UBC branch 72 was then
promised full support for any campaign launched.
According to Legion officials,
Branch 72 and the pre-med tciiib
withheld their campaign until last
week in order not to compromise the
negotiations of the university authorities.
£11 provincial branches will be circularized by the UBC branch in order
to present them with the case tor
the medical school asked for by the
UBC Board of Governors and turned
down last week by the provincial
The circular letter stresses the value and necessity of a Provincial
Medical ^chJool to the whole of Bi.C.
and the fact that several hundred
veterans at UBC, and hundreds of
other students are now unable to gain
entrance to any medical school.
Branch 72 will ask the provincial
command to make special and strong
representations to the forthcoming
meeting of the Legislature and will
ask all branches to bring the maximum public pressure to bear on the
cabinet and their local members for
the establishment of the school.
•i i
Legion officials state that if B.C, is
ever to have its own medical school
and ifMt is to be of any use to the
veterans, who postponed their medteal
careers in order to serve their country for their best years, now is the
time for public opinion to force the
issue while the provincial government
has the money for it.
The Legion hopes to see the democratic method of the public overruling governments, work on this issue to give B.C. a first-tclass medical
school by 1948.
X-Ray Only Solution To TB Toll
Appointments Now
For Campus Survey
|a« Groupt   514
35 44
Appointments for the second annual
chest X-ray for students, faculty and
staff of the University which begins
February 3 and continues for one
month, may be made at the Health
Service office now.
According to the B. C, Tuberculosis
Association, the importance of every
student making and keeping this appointment is seen when figures prove
that tuberculosis takes more lives in
Canada than all other infectious diseases combined, with the heaviest toll
in tile age group of 15 to 35,
Each year over 6,000 Canadians, the
majority of them young, die of this
disease. Another 11,000 are ill in
sanatoria. The results of X-ray examinations of representative groups
of apparently healthy people indicate
that there are thousands of unrecognized cases of tuberculosis in Canada,
Every day that these oases go undetected reduces their chance of recovery and increases the spread of
the disease.

Although these figures seem to make
tho task of stamping out tuberculosis
almost an impossible one, health authorities believe that three-quarters
of the job is already done and with
tools less efficient than those' now at
our disposal,
In 1900 the death rate per 100,000 of
the population from tuberculosis wan
approximately 200. It is now 50 per
100,000, With tho Introduction of the
chest X-ray, cure of the disease is
expected to bo many times faster.
The B.C. Tuberculosis Society says
"Since X-ray diagnosis is the speediest
means of detecting the existence of
TB, and since its treatment is available
and cure possible in the majority of
cases, there is reason to believe that
a   relentless   fight,   supported   by   tile
cooperation of the public itself, can
eliminate the disease from Canada
within the next fifty years."
Wholehearted cooperation with this
program is urged of all university students by Dr. J. Kitching, medical
dim:tor of the Student Health Service. Appointments may be made
at tlie Health Service in the hut behind  the auditorium. President and Secretary, Canadian University Press.

STAFF THIS ISSUE: Senior Editor; Don Ferguson, Associate Editor; Val Sears
Laurie Dyer;
Five thousand eight hundred Canadians died
last year of tuberculosis. That total was only
one-quarter of what it was fifty years ago, but
it was still so tragically serious as to mean that
TB caused more deaths than all other infectious
diseases combined.
A break-down of the total shows that the
highest death rate occurred in the fifteen to
thirty-four age group.
There is, however, firm ground for hope, for
of all the serious maladies TB responds most
favorably to treatment—providing that it is
caught in the early stages.
It is comparatively easy to catch the disease
before it has reached the serious stage, the
best method being the chest X-ray.
That X-ray may not only show TB symptoms
even before the TB begins to make the victim
feel unwell but also may indicate the existence
of some other malady.
The X-ray is not a complicated affair. It may
now be secured with a minimum of time and
effort.   No one has so little time that he can
not take a few minutes to be sure that he will
not waste a life, possibly his own.
There is no charge for the X-ray.
The results are confidential and they are
shown to the person examined within a few
For one month, beginning February third,
UBC students will have the opportunity of
taking the test on the most modern equipment
in Canada by simply walking over to the
Health Service office to make the appointment.
There will be an opportunity for everyone
to take the test. That opportunity applies again
this year to those who took the test last spring,
for TB is communicable, university students
lead hectic lives, and it does not pay to be
careless in the fight against the disease.
These have all been statements of fact.
Is there anyone who needs to have the conclusions drawn for him?
.. Beauty On The Sp
A few days ago I found myself with a two hour space in my
timetable and nothing to do, so I went for a walk; not along the
boulevard or the Mall, but in the woods surrounding our university. The air was cool and fragrant, and strangely conducive
to thought. I asked myself this question: "What does this life
mean to me; this life at University?"
The Mummery
One of Mayor G. G. McGeer's most widely
proclaimed election promises was "There will
be dancing in the streets." This was one plank
in the Mayor's platform which, when I stumbled onto it in the newspaper, sprang up and hit
me right on the nose. And now that the streets
have cleared of snow and the weather is warming, I am becoming increasingly uneasy about
that loose plank, particularly since the Mayor is
one of those politicians who defy tradition by
carrying out their election promises.
He hasn't said yet whether this street dancing will be compulsory, but judging by the
aggressive vigor with which he has led the
Grand March in the Police Department we can
probably assume that it will be. That's what
worries me. I dance like a spavined camel, and
much as I yearn to be a good citizen and amuse
the tourists I view with alarm the possibility
of walking peacably down Granville street
some evening and suddenly being hustled into
a nearby polka by a cop anxious to please the
chief magistrate.
"And where d'ya think you're going' in such
a hurry?" asks the cop, his knee pressed affectionately into the small of my back. "Surely
now you have time for the Pender polka?"
I have trouble enough making my way downtown at night as it is , buffeted by American
sailors charging into the wake of trawling females, or walking absently into the arms of
people witnessing Jehovah, without being drafted into a street dance.
Besides, I have learned from experience that
no woman interested in the future of her feet
will dance with me, indoors or out, and I look
pretty silly dancing by myself, even with a
tambourine. I once took five dollars' worth of
•lessons from one of those schools that advertise
"If you can walk, we will teach you to dance."
After several hours locked in hand-to-hand
combat with an instructress, it became apparent that they weren't going to teach me to
dance. (For one thing, she couldn't get me to
take comers, my style demanding either an
extremely long ballroom or a partner who
could enjoy a good, solid ricochet off the wall.
One day as we stood before a window shuffling
and straining at a 45-degree turn, I glanced
down into the street to see a fair-sized crowd
gaping up at what they must have presumed
to be a life-or-death struggle, one of us trying
to hurl the other out the window.)
Since they couldn't teach me to dance, the
implication was strong that I couldn't walk.
They didn't say so, but I could read it in their
eyes. They knew my ability to move around
on my hind legs was that of a trained elephant,
ready to drop back on all fours if tossed a
So, to me dancing in the street is not what
Vancouver needs at this time. Besides, what
street could we dance in? Most downtown
streets are so full of craters that only a reckless
fool would try even a minuet amongst them, 1
sometimes dream a scene in which I'm waltzing
with Rita Hayworth on Richards street, and we
waltz straight into a bottomless pit outside the
Pioneer Laundry. Every six months a little
man from Public Works comes along and drops
a shovelful of hot tar on us.   Horrible dream.
Now, if this street dancing is the Mayor's
idea of an economical way of filling the potholes in the city's streets, I think he should
say so, instead of creating the impression that
people will just have a good time and be able
to go home afterwards. If, on the other hand,
he intends merely an innocent type of municipal amusement, he should send out search
parties now to find a flat, wide street, well-
paved and well-lit and somewhere north of
the 49th parallel.   It's not too early.
In the meantime I'll practice my Charleston.
To some people it means hard work
and study and little time for recreation. It means taking a degree and
leaving tha campus without consideration of its significance in their lives.
To them, it is merely a stepping-stone
to the future, but to me, it is a great
deal more than that.
It is not simply a gap in my life
to be filled with a supersaturated
solution of academic knowledge, bui
ii is a part of my life. It offers me a
basis on which to build an under-
landing of tolerance, of independ-
nce, of democracy, of an infinite
number of similar Ideals.

Letters To The Editor
letter to the editor
Back To Native
Dear Sir:
Although Father Chaloner's derogatory remarks about the Mardi Gras
chorus are decidedly unworthy of retaliation, I feel that his smug righteousness on the matter should not go
entirely uncorrected. His comments
are so ridiculously impotent that I
think he can only recently have been
awakened to the rude shock that the
good Lord actuary created legs under
the clothes in which women usually
appear. '
On page six of the Vancouver Daily
Province of January 22, the pious
Father is quoted as saying that the
interpretation by the Mardi Gras
committee of Balinese dancing costumes is not based on fact; that the
modest Balinese would be horrified
at the exposure of legs. In UBC's 'inaccurate' interpretation, Father Chaloner could see no clothing from the
hips down—and he was looking very
hard. It is quite true that the costumes are technically inaccurate, but
I was shocked and righteously indignant myself at what the learned
Father is here suggesting, for of
course, with the obvious depth of
education he displays in his letters
to the various editors, he knows that
the true Balinese dancing costume
exposes that entire portion of the
female body which lies above the
hips. Is this what he wishes to see,
rather than that portion from the
hips down? How can he suggest such
a shocking thing as exchanging the
bare leg for the bare torso, simply
so that the Balinese will not send to
E.C. a formal protest aainst such
gross misrepresentation of their costumes as we have dared produce?
Although the Balinese have been following this practice for some centuries, I feel sure that if we were
to copy them thus exactly, every
man, woman and child in our country would be reduced to complete
moral ruination in the space of a
few days! Is this, then, the terrible
thing the Reverend Father is wishing upon us?
Yours truly,
Neil Monroe.
Dear Sir:
In regard to last Thursday's editorial, it is true that there were regrettable misunderstandings connected
with this year's McCtoun Cup debates, and it is true also that the
Parliamentary Forum was in part
responsible. The confusion unfortunately delayed the release of accurate publicity, a fact as painful to
the Forum as it was to The Ubyssey.
It was not, however, the Western Universities Debating League that was at
fault, as the editorial stated, but the
various debating organizations within
the league who succeeded in confusing each other. To the extent of its
own carelessness the Forum is most
There are certain statements, however, in the editorial which I feel need
clarifying. The statement that Forum
officials have phoned The Ubyssey for
information of its affairs is misleading.
The reference is apparently to Dr.
Crumb, the Honorary President, wishing to discover the origin of the McGoun Cup Debates through the file
of The Ubyssey, information which
he had unsuccessfully sought from
Forum executives, and which the latter had not been able themselves to
discover, and to the secretary of the
Forum not having received information from Saskatchewan which was
overdue, phoning to enquire whether
it had been sent to The Ubyssey instead of the Forum.
The Forum this year has been engaged in more activities than ever be-
for: a weekly radio round table program on which forty student speaker*
have already appeared, McGoun Cup
Debates, the Frosh Debate with Victoria College, the Mock Parliament,
the special weekly forum for beginners at public speaking.
It has this year successfully negotiated debates with seven American
universities. In some cases there will
be return engagements.
I mention these items only to demonstrate that it is impossible for any
one executive member to know from
day to day sparine details of each
Forum activity, as the conduct of each
has to be delegated to individual executive members. It is therefore conceivable that "senior executives of
the Parliamentary Forum have not
been able to tell the paper just which
members were on the road during
their American tours." Moreover, for
the tour in question, bur efforts were
hampered by last minute withdrawals of team members.
The Forum appreciates greatly the
excellent coverage by The Ubyssey of
our efforts. That coverage, we admit,
has sometimes been in spite of difficulties encountered in gaining accurate information, and for these difficulties, we apologize. We shall in
future attempt to remove them.
Yours truly,     DAVE WILLIAMS,
Parliamentary Forum.

Ed. Note—It Is Incorrect to say that
the fraternities and sororities were
"supposed" to pay $25.00 per page In
last year's Totem. Though they should
have paid for those pages, they were
never definitely made to commit themselves in that regard. Thus, the AMS
could not legally force the fraternities or sororities to pay any "bills"
for the pages. This year the Greeks
have been made to commit themselves
definitely to paying $25.00 per page,
plus twenty-five cents per person
whose picture appears on it. Whether
or not the Gym fund has any claim
upon J2S.00 IFC cheques which now
do not exist is a matter for the Gym
fund people to take up with the fraternities.
Dear Sir:
In past issue, The Ubyssey has
printed several reasons why the 1946
Totem was not a complete success. I
would like to point out another one.
Last year each fraternity and sorority was supposed to pay $25.00 for
the privilege of having their picture
appear on a separate page in The
Totem. Twenty-one pages of The
Totem were used up printing these
pictures and yet none of the sororities
or fraternities paid up. The result
was that the AMS (that's us) lost
Each year the fraternities must deposit a $25.00 cheque with the Inter-
Fraternity Council Last February
the IFC voted to donate these cheques
(12 fraternities $25.00-1300.00) to the
War Metrvjrial Gym. In March, this
same IFC voted to use the cheques
to pay off their debt to The Totem.
(Perhaps if the year had been a little
longer they could have also used these
same cheques for a variety of other
purposes). As it was, the cheques
were turned over neither to the War
Memorial Gym nor to The Totem.
The fact that the IFC voted to pay
for their pictures makes it apparent
that they were fully aware of their
debt to The Totem. Unless someone
can give a better explanation than I
have received, i.e. that nobody remembered to send out the bills, I think it
is the duty of the present Student
Council to. rectify this error of its predecessor. Another $525.00 certainly
wouldn't hurt the Gym Fund.

Mystery Library Fixture
Puzzles, Delights Students
Sanitation on the campus reached a new high on Saturday
with the appearance on the front lawn of the University of
British Columbia library of—let us not mince words—a toilet.
We have heard in the past of the garden variety of worm, the
garden variety of cabbage and, indeed, the garden variety of
almost everything else. But we do believe that the garden
variety of this human convenience is definitely something of a
novel nature.
Much social signSJcance was sug-£
gested in the speculations of the few
who observed, blushed and continued
onward. It was suggested that perhaps those dogs who choose the Varsity campus as their experimental area
in their perpetual forestry project had
dropped the course this term and de-
manded higher sanitation standards
for this optional course. The subject would be new, but also, in a
sense, a refresher course.
Others glanced over to the construction job north of the library and concluded that the new wing was to
have mora facilities than had been
originally planned. However, whether the addition of these facilities was
to be a matter for the great outdoors
or a project of modest interior decorating seemed to be the indeterminable factor.
Some who witnessed the spectacle
while passing along the Mall reconstructed in their minds the bitter
frustration of a souvenir hunter who
had carried his prize from the Brock
Hall washroom, sighted an enormous
bus lineup and thence, for practical
reason, abandoned the project.
Others drew both economic and
social conclusions from the scene, interpreting it as • move on the part
of a Technocrat urging the banning
of all pay toilets. He was, no doubt,
firmly convinced that the use of such
facilities should not be reserved for
the monied classes.
ffhe more practical observer pointed
the accusing finger at the UBC Jokers
club, believing the placing of the toilet
on the lawn to a form of protest on
the part of some members of the club
against ace Joker Dave Hayward's decision for the club, as Hayward put
it, "to go serious." However, Hay-
ward assured The Ubyssey that even
if some of his boys were responsible,
it was "not an official action of the
"But," the reformed Hayward added wistfully, "it does look rather appropriate, doesn't it?"

Letters Te The Editor
What Trepidation
Dear Sir:
In the Saturday, January 25 issue
of The Ubyssey, there appeared a
letter from some one who carries on
under the, title of "B. A. Hobbs—Arts
47". This letter states, under the
guise of an interest in public welfare,
that compulsory VD tests are necessary at UBC "since the services did
not compel vets on discharge to be
VD tested."
In dealing with these obscene insinuations of a puerile mind, several
points need clarification. In the first
place, all veterans on discharge received, albeit with some trepidation,
a complete blood test; and no service
man was discharged without a clean
bill of health. The second and most
important point is that such suggestions are a slur upon the good name
of all veterans.
The writer of the letter was obviously not a veteran, or he (oj she)
would have known of the bloodtests
at the time of release from the service. And if the writer is not a veteran, the insult becomes doubly objectionable.
The writer is to be congratulated
on having escaped from the perils of
VD, seemingly so apparent in the
services, just as he (or she) is to be
congratulated on having escaped all
the other hazards of war for civilization.
*« Johnny Norris.
TORONTO, Jan. 27, (CUP)- About
twenty members of the Toronto University Atomic and Rocket Society
participated here in the first tests of
rockets built by the group. A biting
wind, and freezing temperatures
hampered operations somewhat, but
two rockets were tried out
Henry Shanfield, a chemical engineer now doing postgraduate work,
built the first rocket, from a 30-inch
seamless aluminum tube. Complete
with its wooden nose-plug and tall
fins, the rocket weighed just under
two pounds. The combustion chamber
was packed with nearly a pound of
home-made gunpowder.
The rocket was set up in a vertical
position, and an electric detonator
for the gunpowder, with a booster
charge of sulphure and potassium
nitrate, was connected to a relay detonation circuit.
While spectators retreated from the
launching site, the relay circuit began to buzz. The retreating onlookers
turned around. So smoke, no roar.
The relay buzzed and buzzed, but
nothing happened.
The second rocket, built by Algy
Rosenberg, IMP & C, was set up.
Considerably larger, it was built of
soldered tinplate. This time the relay
detonator worked. There was a flash,
a roar, and a brilliant orange flame
shot down from the rocket's tail, the
general effect being reminiscent of
the launching of a miniature V2. Just
then the wind gave a stronger blast,
and Rosenberg's rocket toppled over,
and continued to burn itself out. It
was evident that the charge was insufficient to lift or move the three
and a half pound projectile.
As a final touch, the rocket exploded, throwing flame and smoke in all
directions. The power of the charge
was sufficient to blow a hole in the
ground, and the seams had fallen
apart under the intense heat, conservatively estimated of 2000 degree
Fahrenheit Some explosions of this
type have been known to attain near.
ly 5000 degrees, Kurt Stehling, president of the club stated.
Shanfield's rocket was set up for a
second attempt, this time on a 45
degree launching rack. Again the relay buzzed. Adjustments; more buzzing. Suggestions came in from bystanders, and the camera enthusiasts
demanded some action. Experiment,
ers tried electric sparks, flaming wads
of paper, and, finally .cotton wads
soaked in turpentine.
That did it. The flame ducked out
of sight inside the tube, and the observers were getting ready to try a*
gain, when suddenly the rocket quivered uncertainly, an orange flame
gushed out the back, and then it shot
up the launching rack and into the
When it reached a height of 15 feet
it exploded, wobbling in its flight,
and pitching down to the ground.
There it exploded (again.
Examination showed that the charge
had blown one hole through the hull,
and then blown the head off.
The riveted construction of Shanfield's rocket had stood the test and
unlike those on Resenberg's rocket,
the fins remained firmly in place.
On the spot conclusions: (1) The
powder used was all right. (2) A better method of detonation is needed.
(3) The rocket will have to be controlled somehow. (4) This is no time
of the year to be doing outloor experimental work.
lined the plight ot Polish students, and
their present struggle to maintain
existence. The threatened break-down
of Chinese university life was described, as well as the economic and
physical problems of the Indian and
Burmese students.
These students, coming from European countries where there exists the
bitterest disappointment, and from
countries of the Far East with such
widespread distress that it defies description, were meeting at the annual
conference of the International Student Service, at Cambridge, England,
to draft a program of action for 1947.
From Canada and the United States,
a contingent of university students arrived in Cambridge to hear these presentations of problems, and to learn
the place of the New World universities in the vast student organization.
Students in Canada recognize the
ISS as a service which administers relief fuhds to needy universities. They
cannot, however, comprehend the difference this practical expression of
ISS can make, even in supplying one
book or study material where they
are unattainable, or clothing, or fund-
mentals of food and shelter, or hospitalization at ISS sponsored student
As the students at the conference
discussed university problems the
world over, in the neutral atmosphere
of ISS, they realized that this student
organization was translating the
vagueness of international cooperation
into a practical expression. At Cambridge, the ISS undertook an experiment which goes beyond the essential
work of relief, an experiment in which
Canadian students have a part.

Education Plan
Lack of national educations} planning was scored by Dr. G. E. H*H,
president-elect of the University of
Western Ontario, in an address before the Toronto Board of Trade
January 13.
Speaking on "Canada's Responsibility in Higher Education," Dr. Hall's
address closely parallelled the address here of Dr. Wider G. Penfield
at the Fall Convention. The basis of
his argument was that higher education should be placed on a national
problem basis.
Dr. Hall criticized the motion that
any "superior" student regardless of
family financial status, could obtain
a university education. "This idea,"
he declared, "is definitely contrary
to feet, for it is always the big dollar sign that counts in every university in the land."
Dr. Hall also deplored the fact that
many professors and deans were becoming less educators and more business executives, owing to the desires
of many universities to expand physically.

netting two counters against the Varsity men after Tom Wilkinson had
opened the UBC score efforts in the
first stanza to put the winners ahead
at the breather.
By virtue of then* Saturday win,
UBC has strengthened their position
on top of the local stick loop, with
Varsity placing second in the standings.
Vancouver also moved into the win
column Saturday when the locals
took the North Shore Indians for a
hotly contested 2-1 cruise in the second half of the double-header event
on the campus.
As far as a thrilling series goes
however, it was the opinion of most
of the Varsity fandom that these contests reached the height. Play was
fairly rugged and yet there was plenty of good basketball thrown in. In
both cases, the 'Birds had to fight
their way upwards and the crown
was all out to help them.
The Friday night fracas saw the
'Birds erase an opening minute margin and go on to lead throughout
the rest of the first half coming off
the floor with a 26-22 lead. It was
the work of many of the so called
"second stringers" that 'held the Seattle squad off during the first canto
but things were destined to be very
troublesome for the men of Oz from
there on.
The beginning of the second canto
saw the 'Birds maintain their small
but important lead until four quick
Seattle counters brought the score to
42-41, Seattle. Once again the Blue
and Gold built up a margin only »to
see the Chieftains take the lead again
at 53-52. That was all for the 'Bird-
men after that.
The Saturday fracas was strictly an
up-hill fight all the way for the
Thunderbirds. They came off the
maples at the half on the short end
of a 27-23 count after enjoying an
18-11 lead for a few minutes in the
opening canto.
The fight kept a-going with the
'Birds struggling valiantly to tie the
count. Finally with a bare two minutes to go, the 'Birds scored the
counter that made the score 47-46 for
the Blue and Gold squad. Another
basket for UBC and a foul shot for
Seattle finished a thrilling series with
a 47-49 count.
CxPia AU£d
when Varsity met ex-South Burnaby
in the third test of the day. The score
was 5-0 when Don Nesbitt made the
convert good. It was 5-3 a few moments later as Burnaby made their
only score. Harvey Allan kept up the
prestige of the Blue and Gold when
he went over for a try but the kick
was no good. Minutes later a long
run by Russ Latham and a quick pass
to Bud Spiers was good for another
Don Nesbit completed the scoring
by booting over the convert, making
the final count 13-3.
The best game of the day came when
the two student squads UBC and Varsity paired off and the fightingest
team of the year dropped a close 6-3
decision to the champion Varisity septette. UBC opened the scoring when
tricky George Biddle plunged over
the line.
As time went on the Varsity boys
got together and Russ Latham finally
broke through the defenses and made
a sweet run down the field to tie the
score at 3-all. The final score came
when Andy Johnston, playing his usually fast type of game, broke over the
line to make the score 6-3 just as
the whistle blew.
The final game saw the rested 'Lomas facing the sweating and victorious
Varsity crew. Gordie McKee, speedy
winger of the student team opened the
scoring by racing over the line in
the first few minutes. A 50-yard run
netted the next score as Barney Kirby
snatched the leather from a surprised
opponent and raced over the line.
Moments later Barry Morris plunged
over the line again to make the score
9-0. Then McKee turned on the
speed and raced over the line again.
Varsity couldn't get their foot on
the ball, however, and all four convert attempts were nil. Meralomas
redeemed themselves in the dying moments and the final score of the day
was Varsity 12, 'Lomas 3.
Island Ruggermen
Invade Saturday
Fanfares are being sounded this
week for the invasion of the Varsity
Stadium by the first out of town
team since last fall. Victoria, in the
person of the James Bay Athletics,
will meet the champion Thunderbird
rugby crew, Saturday, in what promises to be one of the best rugby games
of the year.
The Bays, who are club champions
of Victoria, will meet the winners of
the Miller and Tidall cups in what is
actually a club championship of B.C.
the winner taking the Rounsfel cup.
A razzle dazzle club of no mean
ability, trie"*Bays*squad includes a
large number of rep players who will
be seeing action soon on the Victoria
Crimson Tide. Campus know-alls
claim that if the Varsity fifteen can
win Saturday, they have a good
chance of winning the McKechnie cup
games against Victoria.
The Blue and Gold are relying on
Russ Latham, Don Nesbit, Hart Crosby in particular, as well as on a full
crew of hard working veterans and
the spirit inspired by Coach Roy
Haines. Such fiactors have already
snagged two hunks of silver, the
Miller and Tisdall cups, and the lads
are willing to add another couple to
their store. At the present rate all
the trophy's won by the Varsity mob,
would, when melted down, practically
pay for a new gym.
PITY THE BAG—Light-heavy puncher Bill Moscovitz

Heavy-weight boxing holdouts, Phil Olsen and Nate Kalen-

Two-hundred-pound Olsen, a big block winner for boxing

Stavemen Take Gonfalon
In Torrid Banff Tourney
(Special to The Ubyssey)
LAKE LOUISE, Alta.—After a slight setback in the slalom
event by the Montana State ski team, the UBC skiers staged a
comeback in the downhill and giant slalom events to win the
three-way combined in the first international inter-collegiate
ski meet at Banff on Saturday and Sunday.
Although they had several of thef"- ~~	
fastest times in the various events,
the Montana team bowed to UBC
whose consistant steadiness proved
the old proverb of slow and steady
winning the race. Under the guidance of Peter Vajda the Varsity plank-
men out-pointed the third-spot Alberta team and the runner-up Manitoba squad who suffered the loss of
a team member when Ray Beck broke
his leg in the downhill practice.
Fastest individual time in the two
slalom runs went to Garvin Robinson
of UBC after the hefty Blue and Gold
staveman twisted and turned down
the course in 1 minute and 37 seconds.
In the downhill event UBCs Amie
Teasdale placed second behind Jack
Davis of Montana when Davis made
the 1500 i vertical) foot drop course
in a record time of 48 seconds. Fourth
and fifth spots in the same event went
to John Frazee and Jerry Lockhart,
both of UBC.
John  Frazee  rocketed  down  (the
giant slalom course to place behind
the  Albertan  winner  of the  event,
Bob Freeze.
Credit also goes to Gordy Cowan
and Gordon Hall for turning in consistant results to put the pointage of
the number one UBC ski team well
above par.
Complete results, including times
of both first and second UBC teams,
will appear in Thursday's Ubyssey.
Crystal Pool is again open. All
swimming club members are advised
that the pre-Xmas schedule of practices is still in effect. The pool is reserved for the swimming club 3:30-
5:00 Mondays and 4:30 - 6:00 on Wednesdays. All members of the swimming team must be out to as many of
these practices as possible. Coach
Whittle will be on hand wiHh a
training schedule for those swimmers.
Legion Defeats
UBC Soccermen
In the only weekend soccer game
featuring a university team the blue-
shorted UBC squad dropped a close
4-2 decision to New Westminster Legion on the upper stadium field Saturday afternoon. Because of poor
ground conditions at the Collingwood
home park the Varsity -Collingwood
first division game was cancelled.
Bill McKay opened the scoring on
a passing play from Jack Blaickhall,
Blackhall drawing out the Legion defence and McKay making no mistake
on the setup. The vets obtained the
equalizer shortly after to make the
score 1-1 &t the half.
McKay then put the student squad
ahead for the last tune on a brilliant
cross-shot. At this point, however,
injuries broke the beck of the UBC
attack with Russ Guest receiving a
dislocated knee and Elso Genovese
and Murdo McLeod suffering from
other assorted leg ailments. With
these three out of the game the vets
rammed home three quick goals to
sew up the game and remain within
one point of second place Coquitlam
in the loop standings.
Tentative date for the Frosh-Sophe-
