EETING
CONSTITUTION CHANGE
IS NEARLY UNANIMOUS
By Laura Haahti
A STORMY CONTROVERSY ended with a near unanimous decision to increase the AMS fee from $13 to $15, with
five dollars allocated to the War Memorial Gym Fund, at the
general AMS meeting in the stadium Tuesday noon.
Sparked by the bracing outdoor
air, representatives of the 2,500
students present thrashed the issue for over an hour, during which
innumerable questions were raised from the floor.
Other agenda included passage
of a motion authorizing die Student Council to appoint a temporary chairmen to the now lead-
erless 'Undergraduate Societies
Committee.
CHEERS AND BOOS
Motion to increase the AMS fee,
made by Jack Cunningham, was
alternately cheered and booed.
At first the motion met with
harsh disapproval, on the grounds
that it would Impose hardships
now and in the future, on both
self-supporting students and the
government.
Doubt was expressed that the
Dominion Government would
meet the Increased costs, lite answer will not be known until
Ottawa has been consulted.

SMART UBCTHUNDERBIRD
SOON GRACES CAMPUS
NEW IN FORMAT, more vital in content, The UBC
Thunderbird will formally begin its second year next Tuesday
when 2,000 copies go on sale, according to an announcement
Wednesday by Editor Alan Dawe.
Its   new  smart  appearance   will
be provided by a changed cover,
different paper stocK, two-column
layout and use of modern type
frees. "Born last winter in difficult circumstances, The Thunderbird will prove next week that
it is progressing toward a healthy adult life," the editors of the
quarterly told The Ubyssey.
JABEZ, TOO
To demonstrate the wide interest of its contents, they revealed
that readers would find a 2,000
word Jazez essay, a UBC novelist's discussion of his work, a repot on some unusual films Vancouver is seeing, and a story of
a coed's uncertain heart, among
the prose pieces,
Dawe added that the poetry
section will be equally good (and
not all serious). There will also
hv cartoons commenting on the
university scene.
FOR ALL
"It's a student magazine," Tho
Ubyssey was told, "and is designed
U be appreciated by all—science-
men   seeking   relaxation,   ns   well
as esthetes in the elevated rooms
of the Players Club."
"In fact, the remarkable persons contributing to its range
from relaxation-seeking science-
men to elevated esthetes."
To convince students that Jabez
alone will justify its 25 cent price,
ihe editors disclosed that his subject is, "Should Women Go To
College?"
UBC Players Club
Hears New Talent
TWENTY-SEVEN NEW members
v/erc chosen from 100 applicants
for acting membership in "The
Players Club" during auditions
held Friday afternoon.
The judging committee was composed of Dorothy Somerset, honorary president, Professor Wood,
founder of the Players Club, Mrs.
Wood, and Beverley Wilson, Student president. The judges watched
the performance of 54 men and 46
,\ oung ladies during the afternoon
and early evening.
IN A FORTY page ultimatum
to the Alma Mater Society of the
University of British Columbia,
Mugdikeeweee H. Franklin, chief
of the Lonesome Polecat Tribe,
Pt. Grey Branch, Battalion Number
72, ordered the Immediate cessation
of all activities on the campus.
Stating that his tribe's rental
fees for the past 24 years has fallen
into arrears, Mugdikeewee demands that the area, still owned
by his organization as set forth
in the AMS constitution, Article
13, be "given back to the Indians."
In an exclusive interview to a
Ubyssey reporter late last night
the greying, stoop shouldered potentate, known affectionately to his
tribesmen as "He who hops-and-
drops" offered the following for
publication.
OPERATION SKUNK
"Owing to the unprecedented
increase in the sale of mephitis
hudsonicus (Ed. note—Stripped
skunk) our tribe, the Lonesome
Polecat's, Pt. Grey Branch, Battalion 72 have mediated and come
to the conclusion that the territories as occupied by The University of British Columbia will
henceforward be used by our
members as a factory for dying,
tanning and defumigating of the
aforementioned  hudsonicus   skins.
"It Is our Intention to occupy this
territory on Friday October 11.
All trespassers will be publicly
prosecuted on open trial, starting
12:15 p.m. in the area know officially as thc Quadrangle."
A special closed meeting of the
AMS council resulted in a hasty
survey of Article No. 13 to try
and discover some loophole wher-
by the university could "squirm
out of" the coming catastrophe.
ARTICLE  13
"I am afraid, that Article 13
can only be interpretated in one
way," said Donald McRae, treasurer for the Society, "and as such
the British North America Act
must henceforward be considered
null and void in all circumstances
pertaining to the passing of laws
in this country."
Ted Kirkpatrick, president of the
Alma Mater Socitey, was noncommittal  at  time of press.
Commerce Rally
Planned at Noon
FRANK PHILLIPS, Commerce
Undergraduate Society president,
reports that tho society will meet
in  the auditorium at noon today.
All members are urged to attend as elections will be held, to

events of a surprising nature will
highlight the meeting. A rehearsal
cf class songs is to be included
on the program.
ODD SPOT
A&IID ITS MYRIAD duties
the URS has now taken over
the task of locating harrased
future benedicts. A phone call
was received early Tuesday
afternoon from a worried bride
to be, asking if the URS would
locate her missing bridegroom
for her. Hie dauntles URS announcer went on the air and
within half an hour the recalcitrant groom was wrapped up
and dellverd to his future wife
at the Marriage licence Bureau.
Members Of Red

Ian McKinnon Is
New Pipe Major
AT THE ORGANIZATIONAL
meeting of the Legion Pipe Band,
held last Friday, and attended by
twenty enthusiasts, including several women, Ian McKinnon was
elected Pipe Major, and a committee was appointed to assist
director Jim Morrow.
As soon as arrangements can be
made a notice will be posted setting
the date for the initial practice,
and all interested persons, even
if they did not attend the first
meeting are asked by McKinnon
to attend.
It has been announced that a
sponsor has been found who will
suply instruments and kilts. However, as these will not be available until after Christmas, an
urgent call goes out to anyone who
would loan the Legion kilts, sporrans, or other parts of the traditional Highland dress, until that
time.
Opening For 144
Cadets In COTC;
Standards
LT. COLONEL R. W. Bonner,
officer commanding the university contingent, r-inounced Tuesday evening that the COTC will
accept into its ranks only those
who succeed in passing an active
force medical exam and who satisfy an officers selection board.
These and many other points
were brought up uuring the
course of a meeting oi prospect*
Ive officer candidates, most of
whom are exservicemen.
The corps this year has openings
for 144 temporary second lieutenants. Until such time as the
applicant passes the required
boards he will be known as an
officer candidate.
Once the cadet has been admitted to the unit, he must be willing
to complete the training, including
at least three months practice,
training at a corps training centre.
While at the training centre the
cadet will be given the full privileges of an officer and will draw
the pay of his temporary rank of
2nd lieutenant, which amounts to
§135.00 per month plus allowances.
Film Society To
Start New Series
THE FIRST OF a series of
movies will be presented by the
UBC Film Society in the auditorium October 15 at 7 p.m. A
nominal fee of 15 cents will be
charged.
"Love Story", a recent English
production, starring Margaret Lock-
wood, Stewart Granger and Patricia Roc, will be shown next Tuesday These three stars also appear
together   in  "The  Wicked  Lady."
The movie, to be shown on October 22, will be announced at a
later date.
Gale Storm, Phil Regan and
Connie Boswell, will be featured
in "Swing Parade of 1946T' on
October 29.
Other movies to be shown
throughout the term include "The
Seventh Veil" and "Sunbonnet
Sue".
GRAPE SHOT
Opposition was dispelled with a
whiff of grape-shot from Mercedes
Fairfax, representing working
students, and from Dave Hayward, president of the Jokers
Club, who offered financial assistance to any undergraduate
who would be unable to afford
the extra 12 fee.
Declared Miss Fairfax, to a
working student, two dollars isn't
any bigger an issue than "six extra packages of cigarettes."
Amendments had been added to
an original motion introduced by
AMS treasurer Don Mcftae to the
effect that:
(1) Since the increased enrolment had retired the Brock Hall
bond issue, balance of money held
by Toronto Oeneral IVust Company be allocated te Ihe Memorial
Gym Fund, and,
(2) The Brack issue be in future allocated to the Gym Fund.
SHORT DEBT
As student's treasurer, McRae
strongly advised a short-term
debt, as would be possible under
Cunningham's amendment, as being financially sound.
Crux of the controversy seemed
to be, that while students were
willing to support the War Memorial Gym drive and set a good
example to the rest of the province, they were unwilling to*
shove extra financial burden on
future students.
GRAVY BOAT
"We won't always be on the
gravy train," argued Harry
Franklin.
Fred Joplin countered that the
fees could be amended if future
student bodies felt so inclined.
"They will be more fortunate
than we—they'll have the gym,"
added Bob Harwood.
Lost and Found
Is Big Business
SINCE THE BEGINNING of the
Fall term the following articles
have been turned into the AMS
lost and found department, and
may be had upon identification.
Eight pens, 5 keys, 4 wallets, «
knitting needles and wool, 4 pair

oversbairps, 2 change purses, a
lighter, a watch, 2 pair glasses, a
key case, a tie clip, a parcel, a
5lide rule, a scarf, and numerous
text books.
Lost and found officials request
that the owners of these article
claim them as soon as possible.
Frosh, Seniors Combine;
Greet New AMS Cards
By   BETTE   WHITECROSS
AMS CARDS MADE their
much-heralded appearance on the
campus on Wednesday.
Miling throngs of curious freshmen finally sorted themselves into
alphabetical lines to receive the
precious bit of pastboard. They
probably had little idea of the
many privileges attendant upon
possession of the little white card,
hut as sophomores and seniors
f( i once seemed eager to line-up
for something, the Frosh decided
it  must be good.
Sciencemen, under the direction
of Ted Kirkpatrick, distributed
the cards, with the admonition to
sign the front of the card, and
DON'T lose it!*
Those who are unable to fight
their way into and through a
line-up on the Brock terrace yesterday, will be able to get their
cards from the AMS office. Holders of cards are reminded that
these cards are a privilege, and
misu.se of the card leaves the
owner open to disciplinary action

THE PRACTICAL MIND
The action taken by Tuesday's general
meeting of the Alma Mater Society to increase the Society's fees as a contribution
tqwards the Memorial Gymnasium Drive
will stand as a tribute to the practical mind.
While it is possible to admire the integrity of those who opposed the motion
oa supposed moral grounds, it is impossible
to uphold that stand as being suitable in
the face of the facts.
As time goes on, and even as support
for the Gym Drive increases throughout
the province, it becomes more and more
apparent that if the Gym is really to be
built the impetus must come from the present group of undergraduates.
Because that is true, the decision made
Tuesday is a step in the right direction.
Now is as good a time as any to admit
publicly that ever since the Gym Drive
started last spring the support from the
general student body has not been as good
as it should have been. The apathy may
be attributed in part to the mismanagement of the campaign at the time, but that
mismanagement must be recognized for what
it was—a lack of skill rather than a deficiency in the proper spirit.
With the formal beginning of the over-
the-top campaign a few short weeks away,
the hour has come to arouse a determined
spirit on the campus that the Gym must
be built. If that spirit is not aroused, there
will never be any War Memorial Gymnasium as now envisaged.
When it came right down to that issue
on Tuesday, the students who attended the
general meeting had the broadness of vision
to realize that to be true. Although many
of them could provide logical reasons why
fees should not be increased, it was quite
apparent when the vote was taken that they
also realized that they were really voting
on whether or not the Drive was to succeed.
After all, had the vote to make the sacrifice
resulted in a negative verdict, it would have
been morally impossible to go out to the
rest of the province and ask for contributions.
As it fortunately happened, the sacrifice was decided upon practically unanimously.
For spiritual reasons rather than for
material reasons, Tuesday's meetings may
be looked upon in future years as the turning point which led to a successful campaign
to construct a Provincial War Memorial
Gymnasium on the UBC campus.
The Wassail Bowl
By NORM KLENMAN
It takes a kind of foolish bravery to bring
up the cold controversy of fraternities and
sororities on this campus. The whole problem has been thrashed out a thousand times,
the only visible results being a little hard
feeling here and there. In a way, it hardly
seems proper for the timid and disinterested
Bowl to officiate at the Annual Greek Letter
Battle's kick-off; but we are confident that
Don Stainsby, the rising star of the editorial
page, will pick up the ball before long, and
possibly make his name as a Zealous Crusader, Besides, this paper could use more
letters to the editor.
ANONYMOUS LETTER TO THE PUB
Its all very well to ignore the whole
issue, of course; pressure of work and study
is a good excuse. But we couldn't ignore
the anonymous letter of, or help feeling kind
of sorry for, one of the young co-eds who
last week learned no sorority wanted her.
You can imagine the sort of girl she is.
A brunette, possibly, and rather pretty. At
any rate, very sweet. Perhaps from out of
town. She took first year in her stride, but
didn't know too many people. She worked
pretty hard.
Before she know it, second year began,
and all her friends planned on getting into
sororities. She registered for rushing, then
sat around for several painful days awaiting the results. But there were no results.
As a matter of fact, there were no results
for about thirty co-eds, and thirty little
hearts don't beat very happily any more.
THERE ARE REASONS
"What' wrong with us?" she asks. A
good question, Miss X . It might be that
you aren't well-known. The girls might like
you, but sororities can't take many girls—
they are private clubs, so to speak—and
too many members would make the club
hard to handle. They have to take the ones
they know, first.
Perhaps you come from across the tracks
.... but that is very possibly not the reason,
because few people nowadays really know
where the tracks lie.
Was it because of your father's bank
account? Hardly, Miss X, although if it
were, you were lucky at that; for A with
an allowance of two-bits a week would never
be able to buy as many cups of coffee as
B with four-bits a week, which situation
might sometimes prove embrassing.
CMA A CLOSED SHOP, TOO
One of the most-used arguments against
fraternities and sororities is that they are
'undemocratic". But why pick on the Greek
Letter organizations alone? As a matter of
fact, we've been trying to get into the Canadian Manufacturers' Association for years
.... No, Miss X, fair or unfair as they
may seem, sororities have a right to pick
their members, just as any other privatve
club has. As long as life itself is "undemocratic", you can't expect anything else.
NOTE TO PAN-HELL
It seems strange that with the huge
increase in enrollment, no one has made
a move to start a few more sororities. One
or two wouldn't cut into the established
ones' territories, but they would certainly
make a lot of girls—notably the thirty
rejected co-eds—happy.
In the meantime, kids, don't take life too
seriously. You can have a hell of a good
time around this place whether you're a
sorority girl or not. You might even try
joining the "pub", which is sometimes known
as the Co-educational Branch of the Poor
Man's Joker Club.
Besides, we have a huge pack of wolves
down here, just drooling at the mouth for
new blood.

A Note of Nostalgia
Things may come, and things
may go, but there will always be
an AMS meeting. Through war,
through depression, through war,
through a turbulent peace, there
will always be a turbulent AMS
meeting.
But change — that inevitable
running mate of mankind. Change.
One can imagine, during the throes
of the first world war, that aome
few hundred students gathered
together to talk things over. They
got things done. They knew each
other by their first names; they
set themselves a goal, and they
got things done.
They dreamed, in the midst of
They Had
Now through the mist may be
seen perhaps some fifteen hundred
students at university. They are
gathered together in the semipermanent Auditorium; they do not
know by name every one present,
nor every other one, but they do
know in a general sort of way
just what who is, and just what
who stands for.
They too had a vision. They saw
before them a gymnasium, a stadium, a student building, They
dreamed; they acted; their dream
u;me true.
It was not all easy. They dreamed
their dreams in the depths of a
depression—a great depression that
the noise and squalor of the Fair-
view Shacks—they dreamed, and
in Uiat dream they visioned a
university situated on Point Grey
and they decided that it was up
to them to do something about it.
They did something about it.
They achieved their immediate
goal and soon, housed in two permanent structures and an astonishing number of semi-permanent
buildings, The University of British
Columbia thrived on the Musqu-
eam tribe lands.
But things change; everything Including the students at UBC,
changes.
A Vision
had everyone preoccupied to such
an extent that many were rather
in favor of abolishing the university than supplying the money
necessary to its expansion.
But the students had a dream;
more than that, the students had
the energy, the Initiative, the drive
necessary to the accomplishment
of their dream.
Once more, springing from the
somewhat ponderous loins of a
meeting of the Alma Mater Society,
the university had taken a timid
step forward. Once more the students had dreamed, and had accomplished their deram.
The Greater Dream
Once more, and perhaps for the
last time, the student body met
in the Auditorium. Another world
war had just been successfully
concluded; another student body
had still another dream.
This time it was to be a memorial
t3 the men of Canada's armed
forces; this time it was to be on
a greater and a grander scale
than eyer before.
The execution of this dream was
commenced, but the going proved
heavy. People had money, but they
apparently liked to keep it. After
the first part of the campaign
they began to question: "What are
the university students themselves
doing?"
In answer to this the students
gathered in thousands at one more
general meeting. But, alas, things
had changed! Many were alone in
the crowd that gathered in an
appropriate place — the Stadium—
to listen to what was to be said
of the question. They listened this
time with the aid of a public address system and two microphones.
They argued over two dollars;
they Anally agreed to pay it.        ,
But, as the meeting was a far
cry from the AMS meetings of
old, so was the meeting in rather
a foreign place. For, just three
days previously, an equal, if not
greater crowd, had gathered there
to cheer their team.
Yes, everything is subject to
change. Everything, that is, but an
AMS meeting. The dream was
shattered when one "young lady"
came to the mike, got the floor,
and asked: "Is there a quorum
present?"
Philosophers to the contrary,
everything does not change.

MONDAY'S GENERAL Meeting,
the first of the year, is considered
a success. Dr. MacKenzie's brief
but inspiring address was very
1 well received, and it has been
decided to make a short talk by
a prominent figure, a regular feature of further meetings. Our
Honourary President unfortunately
had to leave early for his OSC
address, but he has consented to
return at some future meeting to
tcke part in normal discussions in
hi.s capacity as Branch member
The President paid a fine tribute
t> the Branch in his CBC address.
Overwhelming approval was
given to the executive recommendation to suspend further
active campaigning for increases in
DVA grants, until at least such
time as changing conditions, and
more support from other universities, made it worthwhile to launch
another attempt. Approval cam.i
after a brief, but rather lively,
debate.
The resolution asking for approval of entry of 4000 Poles into
Canada was tabled upon the request Bob Dodd, the orginal mover,
because the issue was now settled
and the proposed immigration proceeding.
Housing Officials of the Legion
urge that any vejteran with a
housing problem call immediately
to the Legion Office to register
and fill out a questionnaire. It has
been found that a considerable
number who registered last year
and have  now  solved their own
problem and friled to notify the
Committee of this fact. For this
reason it has become necessary
to check and find out how many
actually require assistance on housing at the present time.
During the next week, the Membership Committee will be approaching all new veterans. Legion
members can greatly aid the work
of this Committe by talking with
their friends and "selling" them
on the merits of Canada's largest
Veterans' organization. The main
appeal to student veterans is that
they should enter the organization,
not with the motive of getting
everything out of it they can, but
but in tho spirit of service, looking upon it as the opportunity of
making a contribution to the general welfare of all Canadian vet-
e-ans and in so doing, making an
investment.
Miscellaneous .... Phil McNab,
remembered by many Legion
members of last winter as the chap
who spent so much time and effort
on the work of the Finance Committe that he was unsuccessful in
his exams, sends his regards from
Winnipeg where he is taking a
course at the University of Manitoba. We would certainly not recommend that anyone repeat this
performance, but Phil certainly
stands as a shining example of unselfish service Anyone interested in the wartime activities
of the Pacific Coast Militia Rangers
can obtain free copies of their
publication "The Ranger" on application to the Legion Office.

Dear Sir:
Students have been criticized
fo; their lack of Interest in student government, evidenced by
jjoor attendance at AMS meetings.
We are told that it is here that
wo must fit ourselves to take an
intelligent place in self-government.
If such rallies are to be mere
travesty of democratic procedure
it will be a wonder if the record
attendance of Tuesday is attained
at future meetings unless an attempt is made to give some voice
to student opinion.
I refer to the process by which
the members of the committee to
revise the AMS constitution were
"CHOSEN." From where I sat in
the Stadium I witnessed a group
of four students in the extreme
left wing, distant though they
were from the micraphone, "EL-
were from the microphone, "EL
ECT" two of the five members of
the committee while thousands
of students took on.
I trust that their fierce enthusiasm originates from a noble desire to recondition the  old con
stitution to cope with the needs
cf the huge present enrolment and
that they are not solely interested
in removing from the statutes
those regulations which somewhat
restricted their personal activities
last year.
This committee was not "elected" and was even expediently enlarged to six so that no election
should be necessitated! What was
most amazing was that they did
not nominate the entire committee!
I fully realize the difficulty hi
obtaining an adequate site and also appreciate the fine job done in
providing loud speakers and microphones. However, I feel as I am
sure did many of those present,
that we would be 111 - advised to
criticize the late Soviet elections
if this is our conception of a democratic one.
I hope this event will have provided a practical lesson for all
of us who are learning at the University the procedures and functions of democratic (again I use
the harassed term) institutions.
Dacre P. Cole.

UBC Chess Player Meets
World Champion Today
THURSDAY, October 10, will be marked as one of the
highlights in Vancouver's chess year when Mr. George
$oltanowski will play a blindfold simultaneous exhibition
against ranking B. C. players.
Andy Malysheff from the UBC
Chess Club will play one of the
eight boards on this memorable
occasion. For two seasons now,
Andy has been active in his play
with the Club. Last year he played
with distinction tn the International meet between B.C. and Washington. This opportunity to meet
one of the world's most spectacular chess figures will be of great
value ln developing this promising
keen young player.
The match will take place In the
Veteran's Memorial Centre at 836
Burrard St. at 8 p.m. on Thursday,
October 10. Mr. Koltonowski will
be blindfolded and will play his
eight opponents all at the same
time. This in itself is a tremendous feat!
MEMORY
However, as the games progress
even mora sensational developments occur. "What are the positions of the men on board number six, Mr. Koltonowski?" he may
be asked as he is moving to board
.number three, and without a moment's hesitation he will describe
the position of each of the thirty-
two men on that board.
Mr. Kolonowski established the
world's blindfold record hi Edinburgh, Scotland, on September
X 1937. There he played 34 games
simultaneously, winning 24, drawing 10 without a single loss.
Penn McLeod
At LSE Meet
THAT THE UNIVERSITY has
never had better downtown sympathy than it has at this time is
the opinion of Penn McLeod,
special speaker at a meeting of
the LSE Monday.
"We ore organizing this gym
drive on such a scale as has never
before been attempted," the
speaker continued. He told of the
pamphlets to be sent throughout
40 Phrateres members who are
compiling pamphlets to be sent

HONORABLE NOTE
Mr. McLeod also made honorable
mention of the Phi Delta Theta
fraternity and the Film Society
for their cooperation.
President Jerry Macdonald then
took over the meeting and sui<-
jiested and a publicity drive which
would "give people an idea of
what actualy goes on at the university."

Sweet Violets
By BASIL RICHARDS
WITH SO MUCH DULL, pudding-faced, constructive thinking
going on around the campus, I
wish to endorse, as a counter-
measure, a column packed with
destruction, wicked jibes, uncen-
sored ribaldry, and occasionally
roaring out an old army ballad.
The latter should be in the original edition: not meddled with by
aged lady poets, containing the
full ninety-six verses, and full of
sweet violets, which latter may
be considered as the emblem of
the column itself.
In this column, any word suggestive of culture or learning,
will be understood to have firmly
nailed to its prow a violent, capitalized and staggered "Anti."
Thus, if mathematics happens to
be the topic, the whob discussion
v/ill be conducted Anti-mathe-
inatically; and so en through the
Anti-learned fields of Anti-Optics,
Anti-Psychology, Anti-Symphonb
concerted,  etc.
WITHIN the confines of the column,    various    attemps    will    be
made to foment amongst the student and faculty readers a lust
foi thc return of certain banished
excitements, and luxuries; such as
cueling and its attendant code of
htnour, tar-and-feathering, old-
lime campus cock-fighting, a two
acre beer hall, a two acre pool
hall, night club, and casino.
The unintelligible baby-talK,
termed "Subtle wit and humor,"
won't be tolerated: the column
won't lisp and titter at such loath-
£ime a. tides, as puns, howlers,
and jokes.
INSTEAD, let the laughter be
that aroused by the sight of u
well-executed hot-foot in a philosophy cliss, a French horn player exploding in the local symphony, a bomb going off ut the
Cheis Club, or a professor ' (or
c!inn, if it can be arranged) ce-
n ented into the new Science
Building. Let us roar at such
healthy red-blooded fun as this-
i"l us drain and crash down our
nteins   together,   and   bellow    for

. . . wi*h URS
"THERE WAS ONCE A Young
Man", whimsical fantasy written
by E. Peter Duval, a UBC student who is well known in Vancouver radio circles, was the play
presented on UBC hour over
station CKMO Wednesday night.
The play was an astounding success which augors well for future
student functions over Vancouver
rodio stations. Joanne Walker and
Joy Coghill were excellent in the
only women's parts in the play,
while Ernie Hill, George Barnes,
Ncrman Campbell, Jack Cowan,
Tom Mableson, Gerald Eddy and
Albert Mansfield shared honors in
the male parts.
Another noteworthy program
presented last night was Music
fiom Varsity over station CJOR
starring Geraldine Foote and John
Fish accompanied by Ernestine
Summers, students of the musical
society of the University. A special
bouquet should go to Mary McLeod
cf the URS who has been writing
the script for this program for
over a year, and who is back
again this year with many wonderful new ideas. This program was
one of the most popular late
evening programs last year and
should attain the same position
this year.
A record crowd surged into
Brock Hall Monday noon to listen
t-i the URS broadcast of the world
Series baseball game carried with
the co-operation of Station CJOR
and the Dominion Network .
The Vancouver News Herald and
the B.C. Electric obligingly relinquished their URS time to allow this serwioe to be presented.
All games in the World Series will
be carried in this manner, the next
game  going  on  the  air  at  11.30

FORT CAMP, leaning on an Army site overlooking Point

and for that they have a recreation hut, recently cleared of
bunks as new huts were completed.
Once in these huts the students       ■

INCORPORATED   2"? MAY 1670. Ruggermen Chosen For Opener
ENOUSH RUGBY teams constituted a serious problem this
year, not because of weakness but
because of almost too much
strength. Monday night Coach
Roy Haines made public his selection of senior teams, and they
are both so powerful that it is hard
to pick between them.
The decisions were finally
reached on the strength of performances In Monday afternoon
tryouts. Most players had however been under observation by
the coaches for several weeks.
Because of the great turnout of
Interested players this year selections were difficult and many
first division calibre men will be
playing in the second division. A>>
a result the University will field
very powerful teams in both divisions.    Pre-season forecasts por
tend honors for all of our Rugger
teams.
First division teams as selected
Monday are as follows. Playing
for Varsity will be Hart Crosby,
Al Gardner, Barry Morris, Harvey
Allen, Jeff Corey, Marshall Smith,
Barney Kirby, and Ron Grant a*,
in the forward line. Scrum half
will be Johnny Wheeler. Five-
eighths Bud Spiers will spark the.
tliree quarter line of Andy Johnston, Russ Latham, Ray Grant,
and McKee, while Bill Dunbar
will take care of the fullback
position.
Playing for UBC will be Braid,
Moon, Kerr, Flavelle, G. Kirby,
Kabush, Edmunds and Pegues,
forwards. Scrum half will be Lott,
and the three quarters will consist of Blddle, Morrison, McKeachie, Armour, 'Williams and Glo>-
FIRST. INTRAMURAL TILTS
GET UNDERWAY TUESDAY
THE INTRAMURAL COMMITTEE of the University of B.C. sprang
into action again last Monday and came up with a great many important
decisions. The confines of HG3 produced many inspirations to the
members of the party present.
It was decided that a fee of five dollars would be charged for the year.
From this fee, referees and other officials will receive a small stipend for
services rendered   This should be paid In full by Nov. 15.
Touch football and volleyballl, which are going to be run off In the
fall session, are going to be worked on a league basis. In this way the
whole schedule should take about six or seven weeks to run off. This
takes the plaoe of a quick knock-out tournament, and all the participants
will have more chance for play.
CROSS   COUNTRY   AS   BEFORE
Cross country will be run off in the same fashion as last year. The
whole thing will be run off on November 6. This date has been picked
ln order to leave plenty of time between the event and the Cross Country at
Spokane about November 22.
In the Cross Country event each club can enter a team of 7 men, only
S of which will score for the team. Any single runner may also enter the
event
The Gymnasium will be in use every Monday, Wednesday and Friday
noons by the Intramural organization. The volleyball schedule will be
run off at thest times.
In addition to tho Gym, Hut G3 will be open for any intramural group
which wishes to use it for a meeting or chalk talk or anything similar.
Any group wishing ths use of this Hut should first check with the Gym.
MUST   START   ON   TIME
Definite and strict rules have been set up this year regarding the
starting time for games. The games must start within ten minutes of
the designated time, or the team lacking in athletic ability must default.
Tennis and Golf will also be played during this session. The tennis
situation is still in thc stages of formation and more information will be
forthcoming in the future. In the golf league, all clubs are asked to turn

There will be four playing fields available for touch football:
1.   Stadium.   2.   The field adjacent to the boulevard which will be kno-w.h
as the EAST PLAYING FIELD.   3.   The fields adjacent to the centre mall

Soccerites Split
Weekend Tilts
UNIVERSITY SOCCER squads
reversed last week's decision when
tho UBC team won its game from
New Westminster Legion by a
score of 2-1 and Varsity dropped
a close 2-1 tilt to Vancouver Rangers.
Greatly Improved over their Initial performance, UBC played
brilliant ball to easily defeat the
Royal City crew on their opponents field. Sparkling passing by
the UBC forwards set up the UBC
scoring plays.
The first goal was scored by
Frank Adams, playing his first
game of the season after being laid
up with an injured ankle. The
second tally went to Morris Moran,
playing in Jack Blakhall's right
wing slot. Blackhall is under a
doctor's care and will be out of
action for at least a week.
On the defensive, Murdo McLeod, at his left full back position,
broke up many of the Legion forward attacks. As a result only
one ball was put past Gil Blair,
playing his first game in the UBC
net. Now that the team has hit the
win column great things are expected from the boys in the future.
VARSITY LOSES
At McBride Park the weakened
Varsity crew dropped Its game to
a hustling Ranger team. Varsity
opened the scoring in the first half,
the goal being scored by Bill
Thomas on a scramble in front of
the Ranger net. Ihe Rangers came
back strongly, however, and notched their two goals before the half-
time whistle. Bill Keeley waa the
marksman.
In the second half Varsity pressed
but  were  unable  te pivot #
Ranger defence.   Absent from #
Varsity cause were 1
playing American fbotkssl SSS %t
MacSween,   performing  the   Mb,
man chores at a middle-aisle cere*

The soccer match of the season
takes place next Saturday on the
upper stadium field when UBC
tekes on their bigger brothers, the
Varsity crew. The UBC gang will
be playing for keeps and out to
keep their win streak intact.
Saturday's    lineups were:

Varsity To Meet Vikings
In Exhibition Grid Match
IT IS PROBABLY safe to say that ninety per cent of
the fans who attended last Saturday's grid opener fully expected the Thunderbirds to take a beating from the powerful
Willamette Bearcats.
Thus there were no complaints from the fans when the
'Birds wound up on the light end of a 26-13 tally. In fact
the crowd was more than satisfied. From the experimental
standpoint, the local boys had come through with flying
colors and then some.

THE HOUSING shortage caught
up with the boxing club in their
first workout Thursday, when
they were forced to migrate from the precincts of thc
playng field.
However, president Wally Gray
didn't give the boys much time
to catch a cold and put them
through their paces in a stylu
which augers well for the futur..
prospects of the team.
The stiff woraout brought out
several smart glove pushers. The
club has picked up a couple of
good bantam weights in Harry
Monroe and Jack Mather, both
ex-navy fighters who show much
promise. Fleming McConnel seem;
likely to fill the light heavy bill
nicely and with the old standbys
of last year Phil Olson, Art Beaumont and Wally Gray the team

Thus, when the Western Washington vikings visit next Saturday
in their exhibition match it may
be quite a different story. The
Norsemen are going to be n»

i.s not exactly going to pull any
