PreMed Delegates
To Interview Hart
• PLANS for a delegation of
pre-med students from UBC to
visit Premier John Hart and discuss plans for a medical faculty
at the University next year were
announced to a meeting of ex-service medical students in Arts 204
Wednesday by Barry Hodgins,
chairman of the pre-med section
of the campus Canadian Legion
The delegation, composed of B,
Murphy, J. Hartley, and B. Hodgins, is being sent to Victoria by
the Pre-Medical Society in the
hope that the BC government will
aid in their campaign for establishment of a medical school on
the campus by 1946. The school
hoped for would train between
50 and 60 students.
Hodgins also announced that
letters had been sent to Minister
of Veteran.s' Affairs. Hon. Ian MacKenzie, and to his deputies.
The pre-med society's Medical
School campaign Is based on the
fact that while there will be over
120 UBC students fully qualified to
enter medical school in 1946, all the
medical schools in Canada together will accept only a total of 25
men from British Columbia.

• MISFORTUNE STRUCK at opening efforts of the Jokers
on the campus Monday, when Dave Hayward, organizer of
the group, sustained severe cuts to his foot as he emerged
from the lily pond north of the library following his inaugural ducking as "Ace Joker."
Hay-ward's mother told Tha
Ubyssey late Monday that he had
been operated on for cut tendon-
at Shaughnessy Military Hospiia'
following first-aid treatment at
university health services office:;.
A former RCAF man, he is entitled to service health benefits for
a year following discharge.
"Dav; wants it made clear that
the ducking was his own idea.''
Mr3, Hayward said. "The accidei t
was not the fault of the Jokers,
and he went into the pond at his
own request."
Jokers, and an interested crowJ
of spectators, thronged borders of
the lily pond at noon Monday as
Hayward took his oath of office
over a pack of cards, ]ust prior rto
his ducking.
They saw him remove his shoes
before he was thrown Into the
water to complete the inauguration. No one appeared to see that
his foot was injured as he climbed
out of the p,»nd.
The injury was first noticed as
Hayward took a shower in the
gymnasium. Students carried him
to the health service offices, wh?r;-
a tourniquet was applied. He was
rushed to the military hospital by
car, and operated on immediately.
Student council treasurer Garry
Miller said Tuesday that the accident was "unfortunate" but wis
in violation of Administration
policy on the campus.
"If the Jokers had been formally
constituted as a club, tho Administration would have enarged t'n^

Speeches Over;
Province Goes
Voting Today
• ENFRANCHISED STUDENTS will be voting today in
their respective districts as the British Columbia election
gets under way. For the first time in the history of the university, students this year heard political platforms and
speeches on the campus as the election campaign progressed.
Speakers representing the four major parties concerned in
the poll appeared in the auditorium to air their views.
Representatives of the Coalition
and the CCF parties address: 1
UBC's first political rally in the
auditorium  noon  Monday.
According to Leon Ladner, K.C,
the Coalition party maintains that
this critical period of transition
from war to peace is not the time
for experiment with untried theories under untried men.
In reply, Mrs. Grace Mclnnis
asserted that the CCF party believes that Hitler-run nations are
produced by people running tho
country and not knowing enough.
Ladner pointed out that thi:
election is a straight issue between
free enterprise and state socialism
He declared that the CCF platform of stats socialism could never
be carried out in a five year period because of the very limited
powers assigned to the province;'
under the B.N.A. Act.
"The old free enterprise is
dead," said Mrs. Mclnnis. "Even
Mr, Ladner knows and admits u
needs controlling to stop getting
out of hand."
Politics-minded students
half filled the Auditorium at
noon Tuesday to hear Social Credit
and Labor Progressive candidates
outline party plans for the B.C.
Peer Paynter, provincial leader
of Social Credit and a candidate
in Vancouver-Buirard riding, declared his party's interest in power
to be only for a means of giving
people the things they wanted.
The state should serve individuals,
and not vice-versa.
Speaking as leader of the Labor
Progressive party, Nigel Morgan,
Vancouver Centre candidate, stated
a three-plank platform of jobs,
housing, and improved social and
labor legislation.
"Labor cannot win divided,"'
Morgan said. "And the CCF cannot win alone."
Calling for the defeat of a "Tory
dominated government" in B.C.,
the Labor-Progressive leader said
his party was willing at any time
to discuss unity with the CCF
and labor unions.
Mr. Paynter stated that Social
Credit monetary policy was a
means to an end. "Economics professors do not always agree with
us," he said.
"Our theories are such that they
will give the individual a complct?
freedom," he said. "We are living
today under a dictatorship of finance."
Social Credit would see that the
amount of money in the hands
of the people was equal to the
value of goods available. It did
not consider public ownership of
industry necessary.
Criticism of CCF policy, and
warning that the Commonwealth
party would have cause for reflection after October 25 were
voiced by Morgan.
"The flght for labor unity will
be ten times as necessary after
the election results are announced," he told his hearers, as h-3
charged the CCF with illogical
state'ments concerning Liberal
domination in the LPP and alleged
statements of  "Moscow control."

Picks Hart To
Win Election
• COALITION    government   'of
Premier John Hart will carry
today's election, according to opinion of 65.1 per cent of the student
body queried in a Ubyssey poll
taken this week. Favoring the CCF
party were 30.9 per cent of students; four per cent were for other
Of 450 students queried at random, 220 were voters. The fact
that only a few said they were
unable to state an opinion indicated a wide interest in provincial
politics. Those with a vote were
asked which party they intended
to vote for, and non-voters were
asked which they would favor if
they had a vote.
The poll revealed that a larger
percentage of men than women
favored the CCF; that students a-
bove second year had a larger
percentage of Coalition supporters,
and that men with military service
were more pro-CCF than those
who had not.
The differences In each of the
three classifications, however, were
not striking.
Figures were: 64.7 per cent of
men and 66.1 per cent of women
for Coalition; 32.2 per cent of men
and 27.4 per cent of women for
CCF; three per cent of men and
6.4 per cent of women for other
parties (LPP or Social Credit).
Questioned were 326 men and 124
women. Actual ratio of nun to
women on the campus may be
Of students in first and second
year, 63.8 per cent favored the
Coalition, 31.2 per cent the CCF
and 4.6 per cent, others. Those in
upper years were 68.2 per cent for
the Coalition, 28.3 per cent for CCF
and 3.4 per cent for others.
Ex-servicemen were 63.9 per cent
for the Coalition, 32.4 per cent for
the CCF and 3.5 per cent for others.
Men without military service were
66.4 per cent for Coalition, 30.4 per
cent for CCF and 3.1 per cent for
others. Women were not so classified.
Students with the vote were almost six peT cent more in favor
of the CCF than were those without the vote. Figures were: Voters
—Coalition 63.3 per cent, CCF 33
per cent, others 3.6 per cent. Non-
voters—Coalition 68.2 per cent,
CCF 27.3 per cent, others 4.4 per
Nearly all those who opposed
both Coalition and CCF favored
the LPP.
Of the few not willing to express
an opinion, most were men. Some
men said they had not been back
in British Columbia long enough
to know the election issues.
More than twice as many women as men favored "other

A Touch Of Heartbreak
.   .   .   EDITORIAL PAGE   .   .   .
Like Walter Winchell and society columnists, we're in the mood for handing out
orchids this week. The recipients are members of the Jokers Club, who are calling up
before our tired old eyes a spectre of the
old varsity spirit which we've heard about
but never seen.
Council will have a great deal of difficulty in passing the constitution of the Jokers Club, which can be recognized behind
all the folderol and razzle dazzle of spectacular publicity as a heroic attempt to rekindle student interest, long dead, in the
University of British Columbia. This aim
of the club is impossible to define exactly
on black and white AMS paper.
It is unfortunate that a small group of
students, including a great majority of returned men, have had to organize in order
to make students sit up and take notice of
other students, athletes in particular. But
they have done this, and although there is
The Best Yet
To many of us, extending hands across
the campus to older brethren has become an automatic gesture with the mass
return this term of many students who
would otherwise have been in the ranks of
UBC alumni many years ago.
But Mamooks aren't exaggerating when
they print in their publicity posters this
year, "It'll be the best Homecoming ever."
The large-scale return of UBC graduates and undergraduates home from the
wars will provide the first opportunity in
six years for nearly all persons with UBC
no good reason why they should not be officially recognized as a campus club in spite
of the unfortunate lily pond incident Tuesday, it is to be hoped that in a few years
we won't need a small club to prod spirit
into undergraduates.
In regard to the Hayward accident, although "hazing" is in direct violation of the
code and constitution of the Alma Mater
Society, the president of the Jokers Club
was a volunteer "casualty". The tragedy is
that the direct consequences of the lily pond
plunge were more serious than anticipated,
and indirect disciplinary results are inevitable in some form or other.
We would recommend to the Discipline
Committee that, if action is taken, it be
taken speedily and lightly, and the incident
dropped as quickly as possible. The Joker's
club has already had its share of bad luck
and should be patted on its collective back
for what it is attempting to bring about.

affair by any means. Although graduates

The Wassail Bowl
by Yak Scribe
assailed students' attempts to purchase
the prescribed university text this year has
brought to the front a serious problem. We
believe that the policy of the bookstore, the
mortopoly it appears to hold, and the seemingly too-frequent changes of the required
texts deserves to be reviewed and possibly
It seems strange that the eventuality of a
huge enrollment this term, and the increased
number of texts therefore necessary, was not
forseen by the bookstore. We realize that
there has been a serious shortage in this
field, but perhaps earlier action would have
assisted considerably. No doubt arrangements were made when the registration became too large to be ignored, but the books
that came were too late and too few.
We might also add that, cramped for space
as the university is, part of the Brock or
even the gymnasium could have been allot-
ed to the bookstore.' One room, with an 18-
odd-foot counter, has proved to be entirely inadequate to serve nearly 6000 students.
One month has elapsed since opening day,
yet many students are seriously handicapped for want of the proper texts.
The fault, of course, does not lie with
those who may have failed to foresee the
huge inrush as much as with a system that
permits one bookstore to operate with a virtual monopoly. After being unable to get
even as far as the door of our shop for two
weeks, we made several trips to the department stores and to independent book- dealers. All of them explained that they did not
handle university books. One saleslady, (on
Spencer's main floor) told us that they did
not carry our texts because the university
would not release the list in advance. We
did not check her story however, and will
not use this as a charge.   But we certainly
wonder aloud, as a greaf many students on
the campus do, why the Varsity Bookstore
is the only place in the city that sells the
required texts.
We also innocently ask why the prescribed
texts for certain subjects are changed so
regularly. Books that seemed quite adequate for our English 1 course a few short
years ago, for instance, have been replaced
by others, newer but very little different.
The same situation has appeared in many
other courses.
What happens to the old books? A student buys a book for a course, uses it carefully, plans on re-selling it to some other
student next year. When the next year
comes, however, there is a good possibility
that the book will no longer be on the lists.
We are all for progress and improvement
in education. Indeed, we realize that some
books, particularly in the sciences, become
outdated very quickly. But there seems to
be some question as to how a Mathematics
or a modern Language text can be so outmoded'as to make it a poor reference for
the course, a bare few years later.
We have heard irresponsible persons on
this very campus claim that frequent changes
of books are the result of "a racket to make
money for the publishers." Naturally, we
dismiss such baseless charges without a second thought. But had the required texts
been changed even a little less frequently
during the past few years, we would doubtless have considerably less trouble equipping ourselves with used editions.
The problems of the bookstore's apparent
monopoly, its inadequate facilities for sales,
and the speed with which many texts become obsolete, are therefore live issues today.
The students respectfully desire to be enlightened.

• ONE OF THE worst features
of attending university during
thc war was the lack of what is
usually called Varsity spirit. Fearful of *do\vntown" opinion, which
has always disapproved of student
volatility, and themselves feelin;;
that frivolous activities were out
of place on a campus where many
were able to attend only because
of deferments from the armed
services, students crevoted themselves more and more to their
Even if they had wished to continue with a peacetime attitude
on a wartime campus, military
training and war work consume!
much of the time which woulj
have been spent on extra-curricular activities.
Added problems of overcrowding, lack of equipment, staff
shortages, and government restrictions contributed to making
life at UBC a business proposition*
This state of affairs may have
k:en desirable in wartime, but
only in a negative way, in that it
gave those who opposed the continuance of university training
nothing to criticize.
It also gave the students nothing
We find ourselves well into the
first peacetime term in rather v.
sorry state. Real c-nthuiiasm—real
/est for Varsity life is non-exis-
tant on the campus.
The students' council haj given
up hope of ever getting a quorum
—only one third of fhe students—
at an AMS meeting. Student activities, debates, elections, discussion -meeting, arc almost unattended.
Teams representing the university, play largely before empty
seats. There is no organized rooting section pulling for tliein even
in  championship  games.
As a more concrete, and perhaps
a significant, example, the Mamook
Club, which has Varsity spirit as
its special province, has degenerated into an association of sign
painters, with a few frustrated
cheer leaders hanging on, but out
of work.
At last, however, help for this
situation is coming, if from an
unexpected quarter.
The Jokers Club, which only
two weeks a#o was merely a club
for intramural sports, has taken
upon itself the work of rejuvenating a tired university.
Mostly returned men who have
never acquired the peculiar lethargy of UBC's recent years, or
senior students who have deplored
the lack of support for campiu
activities during their stay here,
they have already begun to make
varsity  life  more lively.
Besides causing the university to
sit up and take notice of their
own club with an unequalled
campaign of studied, if spontaneous, lunacy, they have takei
over football publicity and entered
into all intramural sports.
They had a group of Jokers at
the station Monday night to five
the Canadian football team a send
off. There were only twenty of
them, but it was a start towards
what UBC really needs.
They will probably break a lot
rules doing it, and they can't do
it alone, but they are on the way
toward making life at university
a fuller and more satisfying experience for all of us.

Mary, Jo-ann,BC Grads
Meet At Northwestern
•    A SCHOOL in China and a newspaper in the United
States are the respective future destinations  of Mary
Quan and Jo-ann Price, brilliant ex-UBC students who met
recently at Northwestern University, Illinois.
The two girls, good friends since
high school days, are studying in
the U.S.—Mary at Columbia and
Jo-ann at Northwestern. Jo-ann
worked on the Ubyssey when siie
was here, while busy Mary was
president of the Chinese Students
Association, secretary of the Letters Club, and vice-president of
the honorary sorority, of Delta
Sigma Pi.
The meeting at Northwestern
occurred when Mary, enroute to
Columbia to study comparative
English literature, dropped off at
the Evanston, Illinois, campus on
the way,
Jo-ann will receive her Maslc/
of Science in Journalism this December. She has won numerous
prizes and scholarships, including
the Sigma Delta Chi Certificate of
Award, nnd Is holding an assistant-
ship in photography. After graduation she plans to work on one of
the larger U.S. dailies.
Mary, of the scholarship-winning Quan family—they've won
seven—will graduate next year,
and hopes to teach English litera-
tur; in China. While at UBC she
won a graduate scholarship.
In 1935 Mary went to Union
high school in Canton with her
brothers, Dick and Ben Quan. She
thinks the two years of strict
study routine in China gave thorn
all good study habits. Dick and
Ben ate attending UBC in 4th and
2nd year respectively, Applied
Science. Their parents are Mr.
and Mrs. Gow Quan.
Jo-ann is the daughter of tho
late J. F. Price and Elizabeth
Bailey Price, both of whom were
well-known Canadian newspaper
writers. Mrs. Price was the ghost
writer of "My Seventy Years," tho
autobiography of Mrs. George
Black, former MP for Yukon. Her
brother is Frampton B. Price,
PhD., now at Berkeley, California, as a psychologist with the
U.S. Navy.
ALL ACTIVITIES scheduled in
the Gymnasium (with the exception of the golf classes on Monday,

will be cancelled from Monday,

The old-time "wildcatter" who pretended to find oil with
his divining rod has long since given way to highly trained
oil scientists. Today, for example, working in teams,
Imperial Oil scientists use many delicate and ingenious instruments to
locate the ancient seabeds underlying more than one-half of Canada's land
area. For oil, geologists know, was first formed from plant and marine
life that flourished millions of years ago on pre-historic ocean fiooHJ.
now the team works
First comes the geologist, to examine soil and rock
outcroppings. Then the aerial photographer maps
a bird's-eye picture of the territory. The geophysicist
investigates the structure of the earth beneath the
surface. The mathematician interprets the data
recorded by the physicist. The chemist analyzes
the water in the district and the sand, clay and rocks
brought up by exploring drills.
But with all his modern knowledge and instruments,
the scientist cannot yet say to the driller with
certainty, "Drill here and you will find oil". Many
times, the drills miss the underground oil deposits
by a few hundred feet. Often, too, a well drilled
at great cost turns out to be a failure.
A two-fold purpose
Yet year in and year out, Imperial Oil scientists
continue their search for Canadian oil with a twofold purpose ... to provide Canadians with more
than 500 useful petroleum products . . . and to help
Canada achieve ever greater oil independence
by development of her own petroleum resources.
Imperial'* search for Canadian oil has gone forward
consistently since 1919.
In the ten-year period/
1935-1944, the total footage of exploratory and
producing wells drilled in
Canada by Imperial Oil
was 1,258,876 feet. , .

are hot under the collar because
of the size of the Varsity cheering
And the unfortunate thing is
that although the reader knows
darn well himself that he wasn't

There is one day however, that

to Homecoming.
Yes, Homecoming is a must in
the lives of most of UBC's students, starting with the tea dance
tomorrow afternoon and going all
the way with the rest of the gang
on Saturday.
The place where everyone con«
gregates however is the football
game Saturday afternoon when all
the present students and those that
are coming back to Varsity to
spend the day with friends they
met at dear old UBC, get togethe'
to take in the latest in good rugger.
It's positively amazing who you

realize so many of my old teachers
(old in the sense that I had them

War-whoop to centre and war-whoop back,
Swing your little squaw till all her ribs crack,
And promenade  like you had feathers down your back.
Meandering over to the gym in search of a basketball
schedule, I peered through the door to look for the Indian
that had let out this maniacal scream a few minutes before.
To my surprise I not only saw one savage but thousands with
their squaws bobbing around them in a mad frenzy to please
their big chiefs.
__________________ One of the smaller squaws at
tired in her white ceremonial
dress was talking into a piece of
metal from which "the voice'
hides behind and issues forth on
a larger scale all over the room.
"Swing your partner round and
round, throw her up and slam
her down," yells the little feather
flittering accross the room.
"Oh, to be young and gay," gurgles a plumpish girl who looks like
she has not only been eating rye
crisp to get thin, but has been eating the boxes also.
One of the attentive braves in
the tribe introduces himself wi*h
a graceful sweep pulling out his
handkerchief to polish his moccasins at the same time, while his
blusing maiden bows to her master
In worshipping "Allah, Allah''
"One foot up and one foot down.
Make that big foot jar the ground,"
sings a bashful bear foot brave.
"But how can I when you are
standing on both of them," squeals
his corny mate as she clutches at
her managled foot.
Now tho little white number,
who has an irrjun hidden in the
piano pops out with him in tlw
middle of the floor and shows her
tribe the easiest way to scalp your
man and still have him to dance
With the first attempt unsuccess-
full, she looks around ior another
victim, and as I simply love the
feel of hair standing on my herd
I slammed the door and ran to
bury myself—in my studies and
was satisfied to wait for a simple
and ladylike game of basketball,
where agility and physical endurance play no part.

The Inter A boys played a very-

side counted for a lot.
Anderson was high scorer for
the UBC squad with 9 points. Mitchell and McDonald were next in

SERVED the interests of the men
overseas by rallying thc trade unions for all-out production and the
