On Campus Blood Drive
25 Per Cent of Students
Contribute As Donors
Approximately twenty-five per cent of the total student
body registered as blood donors in the recent UBC Blood drive,
according to a letter received by committee chairman Rosemary
Hodgins from E. L. Kenny, Director of the Blood Donor Panels,
Vancouver Branch, Canadian Red Cross Society.

SUCCESS
"Please  extend  our  hearty  thanks
to each member of your committee
and others who helped to make the
drive a success.
"It   was   most   gratifying   to   find
everyone so keen, and having a real
grasp of the Importance of the Blood
Transfusion    Service,"    wrote   Mr.
Kenny.
Of the 2255 students registered, total
donations numbered 1859 and 2004
kept their appointments. Under-age
rejections amounted to 145 and 251
students were listed as non-arrivals.
THANKS COMMITTEE
In making the final report, Miss
Hodgins particularly thanked Claire
Murray, Gerry Maclntyre, Bob Hackett, Cliff Greer and Hank Sweatman,
members of her committee, "for their
invaluable service and enthusiasm."
Phrateres, Pre-Med Undergraduate
Society, Pan Hellenic and IFC were
also commended for their help during
registration week.
The Red Cross Society is "highly
pleased with the excellent results, as
we feel the University is the logical
place to build up a group of Blood
Donors for the present and future
success of this -service," said Mr.
Kenney.

Little Value
Toronto, Ont. Nov. 28—
(CUP)—Crossword puzzles do
not aid students to attain a
more expansive vocabulary.
This conclusion came from a series
of interviews with professors conducted at the University of Toronto.
The question: "What do you think is
the value of crossword puzzle to increasing one's vocabulary?"
NO VALUE
Five of the seven professors interviewed saw no value in the crossword
puzzle in so far as it increased vocabulary. Dr. J. D. Robbins, head of
Victoria College (University of Toronto) library stated that a word finds
a niche in one's mind only by being
seen in context. The puzzle does not
perform this function.
Dr. Pratt, English professor and
well-known poet, did say that the
crossword puzzle made a student
search for a precise word to fit a
certain meaning. He added that apparently in essay writing, students
had difficulty in doing this.
IDEAS  PHONEY
Mra L. Hodgins, associate professor
of English at. St. Mike's stated emphatically that "the current ideas cf
vocabulary building are phoney. They
are quantitative."
Professor F. E. Priestly of Union
College pointed out that it depended
a great deal on what type of puzzle
was meant. The crossword puzzles in
the Daily London Times, for example,
ledge of English literature and philosophy and thus were of value in the
useful information learned.

Sense and Nonsense
Jabez Humor Collection
Now On Sale To Public
The long awaited collection of
humor, "Sense and Nonsense" by
campus funnyman Eric Nicol, hit
bookstores across Canada last week,
according to word received from Eric
P. Nicol of the English Department.
Published by the Ryerson Press,
Nicol's 148-page volume of mirth has
been 'on the way" for some time.
Advance copies popped up among
family and friends last week, and a
preview of the book appears in the
current issue of "New World."
"Actually," says the author, "the
book has more than just 148 pages,
when you count the foreword and
the introduction. And then there are
the title pages. One hundred-fifty
pages might be more accurate. It
also makes the buyers thing they're
getting more for their money."
BLAMES PUBLISHERS
Nicol avoids complete responsibility
for   the   150-page   volume,   however.
—Photo by Mickey oones
BIG THREE who contributed to Eric Nicol's volume of humor,
"Sense and Nonsense" grin in triumph at the success of their
work. Distribution of advance copies, free to friends and relatives, reached an all-time high for the publishing business this
week. Shown above, from left to right, are Dr. G. G, Sedgewick,
who wrote the foreword; Eric Nicol, the author; and Mario
Prizek, illustrator. Copies of "Sense and Nonsense" are on sale
at the University bookstore.
"It was the all the publishers' idea,"
he qualifies. The selections were originally printed in The Ubyssey, The
Vaincouve? Daily Province, The Vancouver News-Herald, and the British
Columbia Digest. Some of the eight
essays in the collection go back as
far as 1941.
The author wants to make clear
that, as an added attraction, selections
by Stephen Leacock can be found if
the reader tears apart the binding.
"This book has got to be funny," he
said.
ILLUSTRATED
Other attractions include "ten hilarious illustrations" by UBC student
Mario Prizek and a foreword by Dr.
G. G. Sedgewick of the English Department here.
The 160-page book is in the nature
of an experiment, says the author.
AmorTg the innovations offered is
the fact that the pages are numbered
consecutively, starting at 1. "It is a
new experiment the publishers are
attempting,' said Nicol. "They just
happened to use my book to experiment with."
LARGE TYPE
Another feature of the 180-page collection of humor is the extra-large
clear type in which the book is printed. "This," he says, "is for people who
can't read other books. They can at
least make a start on mine."
Sale of the book will not be limited
to Canada, says Nicol. "I understand
fifty copies were smuggled into England around the waist of some fat
woman," he says.
The 200-page "Sense and Nonsense"
can be bought at the University bookstore.
Under the present scheme there is
no provision for sickness or Other
emergencies, in addition many students, who of a necessity work part
time, find their studies impaired.
These are some of the highlights
brought out by the questionnaire.
"It is important that all married
veterans on the campus who are
undergoing financial difficulties come
into the Legion office and complete
the form," said business manager Bob
Thorpe.
DEADLINE
Perry Miller, Legion president, emphasized that the veterans affected
should complete the form as early as
possible in order to make the survey
satisfactory. The deadline for the
questionnaire is 1230 p.m. : Saturday,
as the data must be forwarded to
Ottawa prior to the opening of parliament on December 5.
A general meeting to discuss the
problem and to hear an executive report to the Branch on negotiations to
date will be held in the auditorium,
Wednesday, December 3 at 12:30 p.m.
University Meet
Planned By UBC
The National Conference of Canadian Universities will be held at
UBC on June 10, according to word
received from President Norman MacKenzie who returned this week from
Winnipeg following discussions with
that body.
Student veteran relations on Canadian campuses were discussed and
a report will be compiled in the near
future, stated Dr. MacKenzie, president of the Conference.
President Mackenzie was accompanied by Professor Henry Angus of
the department of Economics and
Political Science.
Legion Needs Aid
To Correlate Poll
University branch, Canadian Legion
requires volunteers for a staff to
correlate statistics needed for the
poll now being conducted to determine the financial position of married
veterans on the campus.
Speaking on immorality, Stu
Porteous, Leader of the Opposition, said: "Right here on the
campus morality has reached
a terrible low."
The Daily Ubyssey prints immoral
and even sacrlliglous stuff and, in its
last issue, Tlie Thunderbird sunk to
the level of the pulp magazines.
Moreover, at our pep meets the songs,
particularly those of the Engineers
are grossly  Immoral.'
CITES CASES
Eric Broderick, Prime Minister, cited
the cases of "the well-known member of the Protestant League who
devotes his life to attacking the
Roman Catholic Church," "the downtown clergymen whose sense of moral
ethics forced them to object to the
Canadian Legion's Sunday performances" and "the Christian churches
who have aided and abetted every
great war of Europe" as outstanding
examples of hypocrisy.
Principal argument of the Opposition hinged around the fact that, although Christian Churches were providing every opportunity for spiritual
and moral guidance, the majority of
people would not avail themselves of
it.
"If the majority of .people -wejitto.
Christian meetings with an open
heart and an open mind it would be
all right.. But they are staying away
in droves. I do not see how they
can form an opinion without being
there,''  declared  Porteous.
OPPOSITION REPLIES
To charges from Government backbencher that "the Christian Church
was doing nothing practical to aid
humanity," the Opposition cited the
cases of India, Egypt, and China where
"most of the hospitals and institutions
of higher education were founded
by the Christian Churches.
Government speakers' objection to
the Churches' attitude was that "their
doctrines do not take into account
the discoveries of modern science and
therefore they are trying to apply a
long-outdated doctrine to the world
of today."
Engineers Lose
Plea For Exams
Sophomore engineering students at
UBC will have to put up with the "inconvenience" no no Christmas exams
for this year at least,, it appeared
yesterday.
Faculty members approached on the
matter felt that it was too late in the
term to make any changes. Two weeks
of examinations would mean the
cessation of lectures at an earlier date
than now anticipated.
Professor Walter Gage, assistant
dean of Arts, feels that the system
of no formal exams, initiated this
year, should be given at least a
chance to prove itself one way or the
other.
The engineers claim that this year's
system has failed in its purpose and
has caused considerable financial inconvenience. They also object to
numerous midterm exams which they
say disrupt studies.

RISING COST OF CULTURE
"Yesterday the students of Victoria College joined with the students of UBC in their
effort to have the fares on city street cars
reduced.
Significantly enough this move coincided
with the announcement from the B.C.E.Ry.
Co. stating that their negotiations with the
Public Utilities Commission had been successfully concluded and that beginning Monday
morning Vancouver street car tickets will
cost eight and one third cents each (three for
25 cents).
There is still no indication of an increase
in the fare on the University area bus line,
but informed sources describe such an increase as "unlikely".
Certainly ihe time is ripe to approach
the B.C.E. on the matter of reconsidering the
fare for University students.
tlie essence of the plan proposed by the
Students Council, and endorsed by the Victoria College council, is to the effect that the
distinction  drawn  by  the  B.C.E.  between
university students and high school students
is unjust.
High school students travel the city line
on blue or child's tickets. The blue tickets
are sold for eight for 25 cents. They are valid
for children under 12 years of age anytime
and school students on school days between
7:30 a.m. and 5 p.m.
An adjustment of these times would be
necessary to allow university students' to
travel after 5 p.m. and on Saturdays.
If the B.C.E. are under the impression
that UBC students are in better financial positions than high school students they are
mistaken.
The cost of culture has risen to the point
today where the difference between eight and
one third cents and three and one eighth
cents, repeated twice a day every day can
represent a decisive factor.
This is not the first time that the B.C.E.
have been approached in this regard but we
certainly hope that it is the last time. Furthermore we hope that this agitation meets with
more success than on former occasions.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
"A Disgusted Patron"
Dear Sir:
The letter from "A Disgusted
Patron" in your issue of November
26, plainly shows that he is amazingly misinformed, among other
things, as to the status of clubs on
the campus, and as to the booking
procedures of the AMS.
If "A Disgusted Patron" will call
at the AMS office sometime "some
very good" and perhaps enlightening "explanations" will be "forthcoming.''
Jerry A. Macdonald, President
Literary  and  Scientific Executive
Help!
Dear Sir:
What can be done about the
late date of the Christmas exams
in English? Don't the "Powers That
Be" have any sympathy for the
students who have a long trip
home?
I am sure that there are many
of a fairly long travelling time in
who, like myself, are in need
order to reach their homes. If
the exams are to be held on Dec.
21, it means that there will be
Ave wasted days which could be
utilized in earning extra money.
So please tell us what is to be
elone in this case.
Michael Mahoh, 1st year Arts
Keep Moving
Dear Sir:
t am not alone in voicing the
following opinion, it is shared by
the other members of the student
body who ride motorcycles to UBC
and who are as disgusted as I am.
Is seems that we, as a minority
group at UBC are being pushed
from one parking spot to another,
and each move is farther away
from tlie convenience of the main
parking lot. At the present time
we have been ordered to park our
"hacks'' on the south west end of
the mall in the vicinity of the
psychology huts.
During the summer session, a
move was made to the summer
session Students Association meeting that some provision be made
in the main parking lot for motorcycles. Well, wc are still moving!
In our opinion an area in the
second row down, on the north
side of the existing fence, could be
easily set aside and an additional
fence installed. It would be most
convenient to us and not inconvenient tft anyone. As far as, the
oust of a fence is concerned, il
would be more than made up by
the appreciation and ** satisfaction
of my ..«hums and myself.
Just'a Fiend
More Yet . . .
Dear Sir:
I must agree with Joy Bayliss
in her letter on Friday regarding
Wasserman's "Test Cases", and
would like to add to it by taking
exception to Mr. Don Stainsby in
his Friday chapter of "On the
Wagon".
Evidently these self-styled journalists known also as pubsters must
feel that they are being done
wrong. They certainly are using
up enough space in the student's
newspaper trying to prove their
point. Nobody asked Mr. Stainsby
to slave eighteen hours a day
writing his trivial drivel. If Mr.
Stainsby had stopped for reflec-
tionf he would have realized that
a newspaper cannot operate at al!
without subscribers. Fortunately
for The Daily Ubyssey the subscribers are forced to come across,
and their money is being used,
as Mr. Stainsby puts it, for a
school for pubsters. Pubsters could
better have been provided with a
set of automatic tiddlewinks.
If The Daily Ubyssey were promoting some worthy cause the
public might be brought around
by insistent propoganda of the
biased editorials and articles which
have appeared in almost every
issue this year. But the paper is
only campaigning for pubsters,
and it gets sickening in large doses.
Maybe the pubsters would do
better if they could sit back', take
it on the chin, and put out a real
STUDENT NEWSPAPER.

HARD AT IT are four typical card sharks who yesterday participated in Phrateres bridge tournament. Seated from left to
right are Bill Zoellnes, Ken Bojas, Bob Yeastings and Bruce
Holmes with the pasteboards well in hand.
Double And Redouble      By Charles Marshall
Campus Bridge Players
Gather For Tournament
Two spades, five clubs, vulnerable, grand slam, double and
redouble.
Such were the phrases being bandied about Brock Hall
yesterday from 9:30 to 5:30 as Phi chapter of Phrateres presented the first bridge tournament ever held on the campus.
A pall of smoke hung over the scene $■
as  the   pasteboards  fell   and   mixed
sounds of elation and anguish arose
occasionally as that "last uncounted
trump" took the winning trick.
CONVERSATION
Conversation at some tables was
usually limited to "three no trump",
"pass" or "I redouble while at others
everything from history essays to
plans for a New Year's binge were
discussed.
On the sidelines helpful kibitsers
were eagerly giving out gems of
wisdom or snickers of anticipation
as the hands were picked up.
Bridge "fiends" from such organizations as the Mamooks, the Jokers,
Radsoc and the Publications Board
as well as experts from other parts of
the campus were on hand for the daylong session.
NAILS AND SPLINTERS
Scores of tables were set up in
Brock Hall Lounge by industrious
Phrateres workers and early in the
morning bridge enthusiasts appeared,
singly or in groups, to play *he
maximum of 12 hands allowed them.
Many finger nails were bitten to
the  elbow  while  others   were  filled
with splinters from scratching as the
"experts" fought for top honors.
At the end of the session individual
scores were tabulated from the cards
handed in and the winners were
notified by phone.
For the highest man's score went
a Ronson lighter while the woman
with top honors received nylon
stockings. Even the duffers were rewarded as chocolates were given out
as booby prizes.
Phi chapter sponsored the affair as
part of Phrateres over-all campaign
to raise funds for charity.
MEDICAL

Students are again reminded of
the president's notice of October 8:
"UBC students who fall to keep
appointments with the Health Service department will be fined two
dollars". There are still too many
broken appointments, Will you

WEEK-END
SPORTSCOPE
Chiefs Hot; Scalp Arrows
In Senior A Hoop Fixture
It was Tribesmen all the way Thursday night as the UBC
Chiefs fitted the Senior A Arrows into their respective bows
and shot themselves into a 50-47 win over the Transfermen.
Smarting under last Friday's defeat $.
by these same  Arrows  in  the King
Ed gym, the Indians, on their home
floor, had a little more punch  than
Ted Milton's crew could handle.
ARROWS  START EARLY
Arrows got away to an early lead
in the first few minutes of the contest
but the Chiefs soon hit the warpath
and from then on never looked back.
It was the Chieftain's razzle-dazzle
play and their accurate shooting from
around the key that consistently out-
scored the Arrows, and by the time
the Miltonmen get rolling in the
fourth quarter it was too late.
Penalties during the tilt were pretty
evenly divided b€tween both teams
with one man from eaoh side being
asked to leave the floor because of
Ave fouls. '
BOSSONS SHARP
Once again it' was captain Freddie
Bossons who topped the Chief's scoring column with a neat 12 points,
while McKay, also with 12 counters,
led ihe Transfermen.
UBC IN SECOND  PLACE
Thursday's   win   for   the   Chieftains
eased them into a three way tie with
Chilliwack    and    Arrows   for   second
place in the Senior A hoop league,

right now you're taking
hurdles in your stride...
but the ones ahead are tougher I
Not only tougher I They're sometimes very unexpected! And the man who clears them safely
and easily, while others falter, and fail the race,
is usually the man who looked ahead ... .
The man who looked ahead in early youth, and
charted a life insurance program that would carry
him over those unexpected hurdles ... the man
who determined that whatever the future might
hold — the responsibility of marriage and children,
the misfortune of sickness, accident, or loss of income—he would be prepared to take them in his
stride.
To such a man, the Mutual Life representative is
a welcome friend—a wise and experienced counsellor who has been specially trained in adapting
life insurance to the varied needs, desires, and
responsibilities of people of all ages and incomes
and in all walks of life.
He is ready to help you now ... to study your
particular circumstances and advise on the type
of policy or policy-combinations best suited to
your requirements. Make an appointment with
him today. Ask him to explain the special features

Immediately after the face-off the
students started another rush which
kept the puck in the right side of the
centre line for over two minutes, until
Reid topk a spot pass from Lerbemko
for the second goal.
SEE-SAW BATTLE
For the rest of the first canto the
puck sec-sawed from end to end,
with the Spots getting their only goal
on a neat passing attack, Dougherty
taking a pass in the celar from Lang-
ton, leaving Saunders no chance to
save.
The second stanza was featured by
the campusmen's complete mastry,
even though shorthanded for two
minutes after Nelford's interference
penalty. The rugged defenceman took
exception to the call and started to
dispute the point with the referee,
who immediately clapped a ten minute
misconduct on top of the two minute
sentence.
UBC TEAM HOT
At the fourteen minute mark of this
period Lloyd Torfason took Young's
passout from behind the net to rap
in the student's third marker and
just 30 seconds from the breather,
Johnson scored the last, and neatest,
goal of the tilt when he swept in from
the left wing on a solo rush to rifle
the puck into the top corner of the
cage.
Safe with a 4-1 lead, the 'Birds decided to keep up the pressure and although they failed to score in the
final stanza, gave Roy Worral in the
White Spots' net some hard work
before the final period was over.
Haas Young and Bobby Koch showed the fans some nice stick-handling,
while Terry Nelford supplied the
thrills with his resounding body-
checks. For the losers, goalie Worral
and forward Ernie Dougherty played
good hockey, but as a team the 'Birds
fully deserved their win.

Campusmen To Meet Oregon
in Annual Casaba Series
By DICK BLOCKBERGER
Although facing tough opposition, from the University of
Oregon Webfoots over the weekend, the UBC's basketballing
Thunderbirds are in no way dismayed. The 'Birds, who will
be playing Friday and Saturday nights in the Gym, are rounding
into smooth shape, and,are intent on repeating the performance
of the whiz-kids of '45-'46 who humbled the mighty Ducks by
counts of 72-61 and 62-60.
Starting line-up for the Oregon
quintet will in all probability see
Roger Wiley in the pivot position
with flankers Bob Amacher and Jim
Bartlet in the remaining forward
slots. Sam Williamson and Reedy Berg
will be in the defence positions.
'BIRDS  LINE-UP  SAME
As for the 'Birds, their starting
line-up will be the same squad which
has posted three wins against one loss
in the season to date. One bright spot
in the Thunderbird horizon will be
the fact that mentor Bob Osborne will
be back on the bench. Osborne has
been absent from the last two hoop
contests by virtue of attending an
athletic meeting in the East.
OREGON RELYS ON SPEED
"Honest John" Warren, coach of the
Oregon basketball team, is relying
on speed rather than height. Little
Stan Williamson, the team's leading
scorer last season, is the key man in
"Honest John's" speedy line-up. Warren has not completely ignored the
height situation however, as his veteran centre, Wiley, approximates six
foot-nine.
HALF-TIME SHOW
Saturday's contest will be highlight by a half-time show put on by.
the UBC Gym Club. The gymnastics
will be working out on their brand-
new  trampoline and have a  bouncy
performance all worked out.
At any rate, hoop fans should be
provided with one of the season's most
thrilling casaba contests, when two
clubs, both boasting speed as their
forte, clash in the climax of four-year
series. Game time once again is 8 p.m.
Soccer Team Ready
For Revenge Tilt
Varsity's league-leading soccer crevr
will have their work cut out for them
when they meet a hard-hitting Empire Hotel eleven at Powell Street
Grounds this Saturday.
The hotelmen, having taken their
last two starts, will be going all out
to post win number three, and should
prove to be an extremely tough team
to beat.
Although the last match between
these two teams saw the Varsity squad
go down to defeat, the student squad
has been doing some serious prepping,
and will be no pushovers.
In the second division, UBC will
take on Hastings Bluebirds in a feature match to be played on the
campus.
CONFEDERATION, OVAL
FEATURE RUGBY TILTS
Campus ruggermen continue the second half of the Miller
Cup race tomorrow with two away games. UBC makes the long
trek to Confederation Park for a tilt with North Shore All-
Blacks, while the league leading Varsity fifteen will kick off
against Rowing Club at Stanley Park.
Howing  Club  will   be   trying  hard s> —	
:• an upset win  when  they  tackle   UBC crew> as they invade the home
tne Blue and Gold champions at
Brockton Point, and, while the experts are expecting the students to
continue their win streak, the Rowers
have appeared strong in the last two
games and will provide the campusmen with a stiff battle. Game time
will be 3:15.
NORTH SHORE BATTLE
A trip across Lion's Gate bridge
will be the feature attraction of the
weekend   for   Albert   Laithewaite's
park of the North Shore All-Blacks.
Having dropped their last week's tilt
with the Rowing Club at Brockton
(after a protested kick by Hilary
Wotherspoon had been disallowed)
the UBC lads will have to win tomorrow to stay near the top of the
league.
The UBC tussle at Confederation
Park, which gets underway at 2 p.m.,
will be the first out of town game for
the squad, played this year.
