The Daily Ubyssey
Vol. XXX
No. 7
Up or Down
Don't Care
UBC men do not care one way or
another which way women's skirts
go. They think that the femmes
should choose what skirt length
suits them best.
So, to counteract the advertising
slogan "Look to your figure—others
do", and the remarks handed out by
a male scribe in yesterday's Ubyssey,
I made the rounds as to what the men
think of the long skirts situation.
Dave Hayward, President of Jokers,
thinks that the gals on the UBC campus have always been very style
conscious and that anything the gals
choose to we3r will suit him.
Joe Fairleigh follows him up by
saying that the skirt has to fit the
girl's personality. But Ein McPherson, second year law, comes up with,
"I haven't noticed, I always'look into their eyes."
Members of the Student Council
seem to take the whole situation very
seriously. Grant Livinstone says that
he agrees with Jimmy Stewart, it
interferes with one of his favorite
sports. What Jerry McDonald had to
say was censored, for obvious reasons.
The Fraternity men seem to take a
very dim view of the whole situation,
Hank Sweatman President of IFC
states that if girls are going to wear
long skirts he'll wear his shorts.
So gals, Tuum Est.
Quarterly Calls
For Contributions
UBC's two-year-old campus magazine, the Thunderbird, is spreading
its wings again and looking for contributors for its first issue of the
1947-48 session, scheduled for November 13.
Students should submit copy by
October 21, John Wardroper, editor,
announced Wednesday following a
meeting of the Thunderbird executive.
"Our demands will be about the
same as last year's," he said. 'We
want short stories, humorous and serious articles, prose in any other short
form, poetry, cartoons and art work
in general."
Aiming to present as wide a variety
of student work as posible, the quart-
ly magazine prefers prose of about
1,000 words or less, but has used some
pieces nearer 2,000.
"A rarity in its pags in the past two
years has been humerous or satirical
poetry," Wardroper said "Undergraduate poets who are not inspired
only by doom and melancholy will be

of the minutes from the general
meeting of the AMS held last spring.
Business arising out of the minutes
will include the political club issue,
the report on the progress of the
Medical school, and the statement of
progress of the transportation negotiations.
Students will hear the auditor's report on the business of the AMS
during the past year.
At press time this statement was
not available for publication.
Council will* declare their policy on
the expenditures to be undertaken
during  the  forthcoming  fiscal  year.
All 11:30 lectures will be cancelled
to enable all students to attend the

ing completion yesterday to have all
campus eating facilities closed down
during the period.
Members of council are predicting
a reord assembly for the occasion.
"No repetition of the last year's student apathy whih resulted in a turnout of only 300 students for the final
AMS meeting is expected," Bob Harwood AMS Treasurer stated.
Described by Grant Livingstone as
the "most important issue to be

Stainsby noted that it was especially
urgent that Freshmen get their pictures taken.
He pointed out that these pictures,
once taken, will be used in the Totem
all the time the student is in his
undergraduate years, at no extra cost.
A new picture will be taken when the
student has reached his graduating
year, so that he may be shown in the
traditional cap and gown.
Appointment lists are posted now
on the Quad notice board.
Totem '48 is looking for a pilot. Plans for the forthcoming

All that's lacking is a pilot to fly the plane, which will be
rented by the Publications Board for the purpose. Anyone
interested in making the flight for the Totem is requested to

Father And Son Are Botn
Students On UBC Campus
When a father sends his son back to university, that's not
news. But when father and son go back to university together,
you've got a story.
To   the   average   person,   at   least, »>	
such a situation seems rather unusual. But to veteran Ernest W. H.
Miller and his son Craig, it is quite
a natural procedure.
After a rather nomadic army career
of 21 years duration, Ernest Miller
decided to take advantage of his
DVA credit by going into first year
law at UBC. His son, following
through from high school into first
year Arts, finds himself two years
behind his father at the same university,
However, with two members of the
family going to Varsity, the Millers
were faced with the problem of
finding a home in Vancouver. Mr.
Miller began a lengthy search, now
the established procedure for today's
Prospects of a house on Lulu Island
left him aghast with the thought of

Then opportunity knocked in the
form of a three-room trailer at West-
brook camp—a mere ten minutes
walk from the campus. Unhesitant,
the Millers snatched the offer "sight
So far they have found the trailer
both convenient and inexpensive.
Housekeeping problems are simplified
for Mrs. Miller by ample cupboard
space, a built-in refrigerator, and an

Student government is nothing new or
exceptionally exciting to the students of our
day and age. It's something that we more or
less take for granted. Generally, most of us
take advantage of the opportunity that is
presented to us to elect members from
amongst ourselves to fill the offices of our
Student Council. After that, our interest
seems to lag way behind our activities.
Our only contact from that point on with
the actions of those representatives, (for that
is what they are) is what we read in our
newspaper after a council meeting has been
held. Little do we realize the great load that
council members take on their shoulders
when they carry on the activities that are
involved in looking out for our best interests.
But twice each year, the students are
invited to attend a meeting of our council.
Today is one of these days. In the Stadium
at 11:30, there will be a general meeting of
the Alma Mater Society. To the uninitiated,
that means, you. It means all of us; for surely
we are all interested in how affairs are conducted on our campus.
There are several interesting and important matters on the agenda for today's meeting.
Probably the foremost item under discussidti
will concern a topic that has been kicked
around a great deal lately—political clubs on
our  campus.   It  would  be  rather  hard  to
imagine who has not some ideas on a subject
of such general interest.
Such a matter as this, concerning a
subject which is of interest to all Canadians,
is most certainly something about which
college students should form their own opinions. Today, you will have your chance to
express your thoughts on this subject at the
general meeting.
You will also hear a report from the
Pre-Med Committee which was set up last
year to look into the possibilities of setting
up a medical faculty at UBC. Here again, is
something which is of interest to us all, for
the outcome of this investigation could easily
lead to another great step in the history cf
our university.
Beside the regular topics on the agenda
for discussion, there will be time for you to
get up on your own two feet with any little
troubles you have on your mind which are
of interest to the University as a whole.
In short, this is your chance to get in
on the management end of our Alma Mater
Society. You have helped to elect a council,
you have read of the things they have done
on your behalf. Now is your chance to voice
opinions for yourself on matters of great
import to the University as a whole.
What more can we say? From now on,
Tuum Est.
once over
Funny thing about books. Most of them
are full of words. Magazines and newspapers,
too, have long ago succumbed to the lingering
convention of bringing assorted combinations
of a limited number of words. Even columnists, upon rare occasions, have been known
to use them, although usually in no particular
coherent sequence.
Radio, though still staving off a constant
threat of infant mortality, has, in two decades,
flooded the ether with a greater quantity of
words than such prolific writers as Shakespeare, Tolstoy and Thorne Smith were able
to pen during their lifetimes.
Indeed, so important are words to modern radio that two seconds of "dead air" are
considered to put du Pont and Co. on the
rocks, release the locked-in flavor of a shipment of Jello and Make Portia slightly hesitant in her attempt to Face Life.
This it is that those things which a picture
is said to be worth a thousand of, have become an indispensable part of our everyday
life. Words . . . Unaccustomed as I am. A
word from our sponsor. Words . . . Thousands
of them . . . Yes. No. Maybe. Uh-huh. Big.
Little. Desk. Table Chair . . . Okay, you're
well away now. Think of a few yourself.
Okay'.' Got 'em? Now where are you?
We know. Late for a lecture. But isn't that
just the point? Words, we mean. Too many of
them. Commercials. Gossip. Speeches. Debates. Comments. Opinions. Obituaries. Have
you tried Wheaties? Love that Gamma Smelt
. . . Words. Too many of them.
We've been told not to waste time. Not
to waste soap. Not to waste paper. And just
not to waste. But what are we doing about
words? Wasting them! Right and left. Words.
Too many of them.
What this country needs is more tolerance, democracy, and fewer two-bit words.
Let's start a national campaign to do just that.
Save words. Personally, I started such a one-
man campaign some time ago, and am now
happy to report that my clothes closet is
bulging with  all sorts  of words I've saved
from time to time. The only problem now is
where I'm going to store them when my
laundry comes back.
Many of them are words that no longer
have consumer interest , . . Bobbysox. The
Charleston. Suffragettes . . . But I saved
them anyway. No sense wasting them. Pretty
soon I'll get a man from the city traffic
division to come up and sort them out. He
plans to use them to make highway signs.
Granted, the words aren't appropriate for
highway signs. But after all, who reads them
anyway? Think of the words the city council
will save when my signs appear on the highways something like this: Suffragette Limit,
30 Bobbysox per Latakia.
Of course I've collected a great many
words that are unsuitable for traffic signs.
That's because we word-savers have no direct
contact with one another and are forced by
circumstances to collect, save and communicate words on the walls of public washrooms.
Some of these words will, no doubt, be used
in the next AMS election campaign.
The rest of them, I'm leasing out to
chambers of commerce in small towns that
would like people to think that their collection of shacks is a city or, perhaps more
appropriately, a university. These words,
which they will use through my own,aesthetic and unselfish courtesy, will be added
to their meager "city" directories, thus bulging the volumes to metropolitan proportions.
But such methods of expansion and application are liable to drastic misuse. All too
often has a comma become a sentence, a word
become a paragraph and a short essay become
a set of encyclopedias (Morocco bound, $49.95
at Spencer's Book Department).
As a matter of fact this writer, himself
a member in good standing of Word Savers
Annonymous, has fallen into the evil ways
of verbosity. I sat down to this typewriter

Dear Sir:
Regarding the editorial "Sliding
Scale or Sliding Rules" which appeared in the Tuesday, September 30
issue of the Daily Ubyssey. If it is
the intention of the Ubyssey to publish unbiased opinion I believe it has
certainly failed in the case of the
above mentioned editorial. Such tactless remarks as were displayed in
the concluding lines will contribute
little toward the welding of interfaculty relations.
Drawing a ridiculous comparison
between "honor arts and law courses"
and applied science courses was not
only irrelevant but also obviously
flavoured with a strong personal bias.
Yours truly,
Roy B. Mason (Sc '49).
It positively Is a fact Mr. Mason.
Why don't you compare your timetable with that of an honors artsman
or a law student.
Further, Mr. Mason, how do you
propose to deem an "unbiased opinion." We contend that If an opinion
is to be unbiased it ceases to be an
opinion and becomes a simple statement of fact. It is not the purpose
of a newspaper editorial to state fact,
rather to express opinions. . . . QED.

Yours truly,
Dear Sir:
The student's council is to be most
highly commended upon its decision
to bring political activity on the campus into the full light of day. The
recognition that student's are sufficiently mature to deal competently
with political facts is long overdue.
In this respect, however, the Council
must realize that restrictions to liberty of political activity are repressive. In the hands of our present
liberal-minded Executive we students
are certain of our position, but future AMS executives may not prove
as non-partisan  in character.
Why hang a sword over our political heads? Let us accept the fact that
maturity demands responsibility. Our
campus club memberships and meetings are open affairs if the majority
Conservatives or Technocrats, that
should be no concern of the Student's Council provided that the original constitution of the club be
not violated.
Such unnecessary apprehensive restrictions as are proposed by this
otherwise most desirable amendment
are but echoes of anxious adolescence.
Paternalistic controls on the part of
the Council are neither necessary nor
wanted. Let each campus club function democratically as the majority
of its members see fit.
Resrictions to the ashcan!!—let us
act like adults.
D. Blewett.
Dear Sir:
I   would   be   very   grateful   if   you
would publish this letter since—I
believe—it would clear up some false
impressions which your article on
the newly formed Ski Club might
have given to campus skiers.
This article, appearing in the Sept.
30 edition of the Ubyssey, seemed
to imply that the competetive skiers
had a serious quarrel with the Varsity
Outdoor Club and therefore formed
their own Club.
Furthermore, the article stated
that from now on all skiing on the
campus be handled by the new Club
and the VOC will limit itself to hiking
and mountain climbing activities.
' This view represents a misunderstanding of the facts.
The organization of a competetive
Ski Club was decided upon by last
years ski team after having discussed the problem with the VOC executive. It was agreed upon that the
administration of competetive skiing
placed an unnecessary burden on the
VOC members whose interest lies
mainly in ski mountaineering and
recreational skiing. Therefore the ski
team should look after its own affairs, form its own club, and provide for the special aims and interests of the competetive skiers.
Thus the Ski Club was formed for
competetive skiers only and for
those who are interested in competetive skiing. It would serve as a
pool from which the team can be
drawn and where prospective team
members can be developed.
I wish to emphasize however, that
the Ski Club will make no attempt
to organize recreational skiing on the
campus nor does it plan to provide
Cabin accommation for its members.
The VOC will continue with this
work and provide the recreational
skier and the ski mountaineer with
a home. In doing so it will perform
a much more important function on
the campus than any competetive
club could ever hope to fulfill. And
I am sure that every competetive
skier will not only give his support
to the VOC, but will continue to regard it as a sort of "Base Camp"
where help or advice can be had
whenever   needed.
Yours truly,
Peter Vajda

Beginning at 8:30 p.m. ,Frosh and
their partners moved slowly in a long
line-up to be formally introduced to
President N.A.M. MacKenzie, Dean
Clement, Dean Finlayson, Dean
Mawdsley, Dean Curtis, Dean Buchanan, and Professor Gage. Introducing the first year students were
members of the council. After being
received, freshmen deposited their
initiation regalia on a model of the
cairn placed at the north end of the
An estimated 2500 students danced
to the sweet melodies of Joe Mioelli's
Embassy Ballroom orchestra and
listened to the tenor, voice of Doug
Allen sing such popular songs as "I
Surrender," "Mam'selle," "Stardust,"
and Ask Anyone Who Knows."
Micelli himself entertained the crowd
with his versions of "Annie's Cousin
Fannie"   and  "A-tisket-a-tasket."
Late in the proceedings, a commotion was caused by the entrance
of three members of the "Society for
the Prevention of Skirts." Led by
Stanley Burke, Jr., and followed by
a horde of women advocates, the trio
fought their way to the platform and
explained their mission. Asked for
a popular vote on skirts, the majority
of the crowd was firmly against long
skirts, slightly for skirts above the
knee, but cheered loudly at the suggestion of no skirts at all.
It was stated by Burke that the
Kappa Kappa Gamma Sorority will
continue on with the plan for the
abolishment  of skirts.
On hearing that H.F.A. King,
writer of "Hail UBC was playing
trumpet with Micelli's orchestra,
Frosh and upperclassmen alike applauded loudly.

Students Donate
Blood At UBC
Unit will begin operations at UBC
October 14 in order to secure blood
from every student on the campus.
Blood doning is a simple and painless process for the donor. It has no
detrimental effects Upon the individual and requires only about half an
hour of his time.
A blood test is first given to determine whether the perosn is in sufficiently good physical condition to
give blood. A local anesthetic is then
administered and four fifths of a pint
of blood is drawn. This quantity of
blood is enly the reserve which every
individual in normal health has.
After the blood has been taken a
stimulant such as coffee is given
which restores the blood guickly to
its former level.
Blood donated by UBC students
will be used in Vancouver hospitals
for immediate transfusion. If the
blood is not used within two weeks,
the plasma is then extracted and sent
to Connaught laboritories in Toronto. Here the plasma is processed and
is then available for use in certain
types of cases such as burns in which
it is preferable to whole blood.

"COME IN, SOUTH AMERICA" says Varsity radio ham president Ed Heard as he flicks
switches and twists dials in one of many UBC c alls that are making amateur radio history in
British Columbia these days. Still in the embryo stages of development, Varsity's hams have
big plans for the coming year. Among the items on the club agenda is a new 500-watt transmitter that will enable the club to call by voice, instead of using the International Morse Code,
as they have been doing up until now.

Pass Event
A packed stadium for the
UBC-CPS American football
match Saturday was virtually
assured today, when Luke
Moyls, graduate manager of
athletics, announced that all
students will be admitted free.
This move was decided upon at a
recent meeting between athletic officials and Grant Livingstone, Students' Council president ,in an effort
to stimulate student interest in athletics.
However, with a stadium seating
capacity of slightly under 4000, it
will be a first come first serve proposition. Student identification cards
must be presented at the gate. Booster pass holders will be assured of
reserved seats.
Golfers Stage
Tourney Soon
Tuesday marked the first meeting
of the Varsity Golf Club. There the
executive of Dick Hanley, president;
Bob Plommer, vice-president; and
Dave Dale, secretary was elected.
All student golfers are invited to
enter the UBC golf tournament, the
qualifying round of which is to be
run off on Saturday and Sunday on
the University Golf Course.
In order to enter one need only
deposit his score card in the box provided for in the pro shop of the
course. The card must contain the
score, the players' name, his phone
number, and the signature of the
accompanying player.
The  draw will  be  posted  in  the
Quad on Tuesday.
In four weeks another meeting ef
the Club will be held to distribute
prizes and make plans for a Golf Day
to be held at Coquitlam.
Golf Club membership cards may
be obtained at the AMS office any
day   for   only   one   dollar.
