 Ambulance-Betore-Xmas Starts Last Lap
Fifty Cents Asked
From Each Student
In Ambulance Drive
•   UBC's  "AMBULANCE-BEFORE-CHRISTMAS"   campaign goes into its last lap tomorrow with a special one-
week drive.   During the week, each student is asked to contribute fifty cents to the ambulance.
Small cardboard ambulances are to take the place of
ribbons—as previously announced—to signify each fifty cent
donation to the ambulance.
Every central point on the campus is being canvassed by girls. On
Wednesday, regular Self-Denial
day girls will take over these duties and Thursday, sorority members under the Pan Hellenic Society wiU do the job.
As the UBYSSEY goes to press,
no arrangements hare yat beet
completed for the invitation of «

tags. If plans go through, it is believed that Bob Chester's or Dal
Richards' band will perform Thursday noon in the auditorium.
Mamooks members are posting
daily score sheets on the campus
during the week to show how many
students have contributed to the
ambulance. The scores will be
kept along the same idea as Victory
Loan thermometers.
In charge of the drive, Hugh
HaU made the following statement
to the UBYSSEY about the one
week drive? "The university has
promised itself to buy an ambulance before Christmas. Each university student has an honourable
obligation to contribute his fifty
cents to the project. If he fails to
do this, he is a shirker."
It is unlikely that Bob Chester,
popular American orchestra leader, who is appearing in Vancouver
this week, will be able to come out
for a pep meet.
Originally it was hoped to have
Bob and his band appear at a pep
meet which would have been open
to ribbon wearers. There is a possibility that some other function
will take the place of the orchestra.

Plenty Of Coffee For
Exam Shattered Nerves
•   STUDENTS WHO are counting on good strong coffee to
cool shattered nerves during the Christmas examinations
will not be disappointed, even if there is a coffee shortage. Mr.
Irwin, proprietor of the Canadian National Institute for the
Blind coffeeshop at the university Bus terminal, has guaranteed that he will do everything in his power to provide enough
coffee for exam-shaken students.
This month the coffee shop quota       ______________»___________-____-_
has been limited to the amount
consumed during September. A?
the university did not really get
under way until the middle of that
month, the consumption of coffee
was approximately half the normal
amount used, with the result that
the coffee has had to go twice as
far this month. There will be no
shortage, however, as Mr,
has been getting the m
every coffee bean.
Each yenr Sigma Tau Chi selects

No Peanuts
For Carson
e   "THE   CLEAN-UP   Campalg-t
was   a   succes,"   Paul   Buck,
president of the project, declared.
"Generally, the results were
gratifying," he continued. He attributed this greatly to the student body as a whole, and partly
to individual groups.
The Mamooks assisted in publicity, the Radio Society echoed
the slogan; and the Pan Hellenic
did a good share with regard to
Caf tables.

officially on Saturday, November

large enough to Insure ample coffee for the Christmas rush. The

To Be Deferred
•   SENIOR CLASS elections will
not be held before Christmas,
Hugh Ritchie, Arts Undergraduate
president announced today.
In the two elections already held,
one on Monday, October 25, the
other on Friday, October 30, an Insufficient number of students appeared to provide a quorum, and
the executive, with Foster Isher
wood as president, was not accepted by CouncU.
Hugh Ritchie stated that a third
election wUl be held after Christmas. It ls now too late to make
plans for a Senior Class party before the holidays.
With more publicity and more
class spirit, Ritchie expects both
a satisfactory election and party. Page Two-

"More Blessed
Starting on Wednesday of this week the
War Aid Council will initiate a concentrated drive for funds with which to buy
UBC's Christmas gift to the Canadian Red
The campaign will be something different than anything ever tried on the cam
pus by the War Aid Council... With the exception of self-denial days, every money-
raising scheme we have had, has offered
shekels. It may have been a dance, entertainment a pep meet or a carnival, but always the student got something in return
for his early outlay.
The "Ambulance for Christmas" fund
is still nearly 1300 dollars short of its objective. It is too close to exams to run a lot
of events to raise this amount. The student
body has not got the time to attend social
functions held close to exams, and the members of the council definitely cannot spare
the time required to organize these events
So the new venture has been undertaken. It will require around $1300 dollars,
and that averages out about 50 cents a person. It has been decided to ask the student*
to give the sum outright, and all they will
receive in return is an emblem to show that,
they have done their part.
Ihe big drive which was run to raise
funds for the ambulance flopped. One reason was that it had to be postponed while
an equally worthy campaign was run to raise
money for the Victory Loan, then it followed as an anti-climax to the bond sales.
Then there was some bungling in the details
of the campaign and it soon became a miserable failure all round.
The fact remains, however, that thc
bond sale affected only a few students, and
there has been no real campaign, except
self-denial days, that has touched all the
students. Now the individual student has
an opportunity to show whether or not he
or she is behind the campus war effort.
Fifty cents is not a great deal to give.
There is no student on the campus who cannot deny himself a few cokes, or perhaps
one show, to give to a really worthy cause.
It won't take you away from your studies
and it won't ruin you financially, in fact, the
contribution will not cost you much no matter how you look at it. Still, all those individual contributions will add up to a concrete illustration of what UBC is doing by
way of a war effort, and the illustration will
be a Red Cross Ambulance carrying on
its errand of mercy on the fighting front.
One thing this campaign will show is
whether or not the student body can give
to a cause that is worthwhile without being
pampered into giving. As things stand at
present it will be a straight gift and it is
not unreasonable to expect the students to
come across.
With those Christmas exams rapidly approaching the library is busier than ever
these days, and, since it has been crowded
since the middle of October this means that
the "stone castle's" facilities are being used
to capacity.
Bearing this in mind it would only be
reasonable to expect that the scholars who
seek to make the grade at Christmas would
make every attempt to aid in making the
reading rooms and main wings of the building a haven for study. This, however, is not
Uie ease.
At almost any table you sit at there
are always two or three persons who have
kit the caf because they "just have to get
dewn to work," and then when they get to
the enly place on the campus that is de-'
signed for actual study, they begin a conversation with some of their friends and
yet some of those enjoying a recess
■sake it impossible for the people in their
vicinity to concentrate.
Down in the stacks it is the same. Some
person who has grown a little weary of his
books decided to go calling and drops in on a
friend in one of the carrals. Normally, by
keeping the voices down, this can be accomplished without annoying anyone nearby,
yet some of those enjoying a recess can't
seem to keep their voices down below a dull
The library staff are far too busy to
go around asking a group of supposed adults
to stop talking, and if they do the offenders
become as indignant as if someone had
violated their personal freedom.
It obviously calls for more thoughtful
and considerate attitude on the part of a
few students. If they feel that they must
talk let them retire to the corners of the
library or downstairs in the building where
their conversation will not interfere with
those who wish to work.

• IN THE PAST year or so, we
have seen it proven that pigtails, as worn by coUege girls, can
be both practical and pretty. You
may consider them to be out of
the question for whiter wear, in
this climate, but apparently they
are stiU very popular In Durant,
Oklahoma. The girls there braid
red white and blue ribbons Into
their pigtaUs.
• AND THAT reminds me.  You
have probably seen or heard of
the fadshlonable beanie that features a thick, braided wool pigtail
attached to its crown. WeU Nancy

crashed through with a reaUy
novel combination of the authentic
end synthetic pigtails described a-
bove. She wean e red beanie, te

but made of real hair! It hangs
over one shoulder, and is completed with a bright plaid oow.

• NOT ONE BOW, but as many
aa you can accommodate, is a
recent Inspiration from many porta
of the States. And you don't wear
them in your hair, either, surprise,
surprise . . . you pin them sU over
your sweater!! Of course, this idea
was foUowed up by girls in Jamaica, New York. They decided
that their kerchiefs were just the
place for the bow treatment, so,
attacking them enthusiastically,
they pinned on as many bows as
space allowed for. Kind of fluttery,
but cute!
• SPEAKING OF fad-shlons, no
UBC student,  either  male or
female, is going to be considered
in the swing of things this week,
unless he is wearing one of those
bright cardboard ambulances which
signifies that he has donated fifty
cents to the Ambulance Fund. How
'bout that, everybody . . . let's
make it unanimous!
e HERE'S A pretty cute idea,
girls, picked up from an Informant In Greenbush, Wisconsin.
The girls there have created a new
fad-shion In headwear, by putting
"funny faces" on their beanies.
They sew on a pair of goo-goo
eyes, and a wide grin, complete
with teeth, all made of scraps of

• IF YOU are a lover of jewelry,
particularly brooches and pins,
you will probably be Interested in
this trick, which is popular in
many parts of the States. Our informant, who is crazy about novelty pins, explains that rather than

way in a box, or drawer, she displays it en her dressing table. Yes,
she phis all her brooches on the
long skirt of her boudoir doll. This
eliminates frantic searching, she

•   VARSITY'S INTER A basketballers marked the opening of the current hockey season by dropping a close
44-43 decision to a fast skating Army five, Friday night
at Exhibition Gardens.
We mention hookey and skating,
because conditions at Exhibition
Oardens closely resemble these
popular winter pastimes.
It seems the soldier boys had had
a dance at their gym the night before and the floor was still slippery from the war, in spite of
their efforts to scrub it off the day
of the game.
Varsity players, although they
dropped their third game ot the
season, agreed that the game was
worth the trek out to Hastings
Park. Since the game waa an exhibition, the loss did not affect
Varsity's position in the standings
The Thunderbirds were also able
to play basketball without undergoing the usual tension and pressure of league games.
The game did not prove anything,
outside of the fact that as hockey
players Varsity boys are good bas-
ketbaUers, but, nevertheless, the
CoUegians enjoyed the game very
The game marked the return (If
only temporary) of Coach Demetrie
Elefthery to the basketball wars.

Gridders End Season;
Campus Future Bright
For American Sport
•   VARSITY FOLLOWERS of American Football finished their season Saturday when
they took a 19-0 defeat from the powerful Ack Ack football squad.
Out-run, out-kicked, out-passed, and out-guessed, the Varsity gridders, most of
them just out of High School, had met more than their match in the seasoned Army entry,
most of them ex-semi-pros from Eastern Canada.
Apart from their losses at the
hands of the veteran Army teams,
the new squad enjoyed a good season, their first on the campus
In their six games they won three,
tied one, and dropped two.
Starting the season against a
young college team, the Thunderbirds surprised downtown experts
by taking an easy win over the
youngsters after only a week or so
of practise.
In spite of almost crushing obstacles, the team continued its
struggle for a place on the campus
sport map, and turned out to evening practises, under the careful
guidance of Johnny Farina.
Their first big game was with the
Boeing team, and the student*
again surprised the experts by
routing the plane-builders at the
Homecoming game.
Since then they again surprised
by tieing the Ack Acks at a Victory
show short game, the defeated
Boeings again, but dropped two to
the Army,
The team in its first year on the
campus has more than justified its
existence and has shown by its unfailing enthusiasm that it would
have a place among campus major
sports for some time to come.
The team headed by Johnny
Farina and managed by Harry
Tourney was composed of the following men: Cam Coady, RanSi
Mattu, Spud Murphy, Doug Reld,
Phil Guman, "Si" Olliver, Hank
Sweatman, Barnie Guishon, Frank
Campbell, Jack Shillabeer, Bob
Scahabelli, Doug McCauley, Bud
Davies, Len Mitten, Dusty Rhodes,
Chuck Wills, Ken Islaub, Bob Peacock, Lionel Fournier, Andy Carmichael.

Rep Ruggers Down
'Birds 44-0 On Sat.
•   THE VARSITY McKECHNIE Cup English Rugby fifteen went down to a smarting 44-0 defeat at the hands
of the Vancouver Reps on a soggy Brockton Point pitch Saturday afternoon.
This was the opening game of the season's play for the
famous mug. The three teams, Reps, Varsity and Victoria
play a two-game home end and home series before the winner is decided.
The students fought hard
throughout the entire game but
werg overpowered in every department especially in the back-
' field section where the All-Stars
had their three quarter line working  to  perfection.
The Reps piled up a total of 17
points in the first half and added
the other 27 in the final session, in
spite of being short-handed. They
were playing twelve men against
the students fourteen at one time
High scorer for the day was
Norm Constantino who booted a
total of 14 points, eight of them
on converts and six on penalties.
Barrie Morris bagged three tries
for nine points, with Sammy Tu-
rone garnering two. Neel McLeod,
Jack Waters, Bus Philips, Bob Orr
and Jim Smart completed the
scoring with a try apiece.
Varsity suffered a casualty when
Chuck Moore dislocated his shoul
der. This made it necessary for
the students to play one man short
for the remainder of the contest.
Reps suffered injuries also with
Morris, Sutherland and McLeod,
all off the fiel at one time.
The closest the students got to
crossing the Rep line was in the
dying minutes of the game when
Gordie McKee advanced the ball
to the All-Stars three-yard line,
but here it was stopped.
The Birds line-up waa as follow*:
Frank Ekman, Bob Owen, Alec
Jones, Don Johnson, Gerry Lock-

• VARSITY'S Senior A baskeS
ball team has Anally met its
match. Playing a girl's grass-
hockey team last Friday noon hour,
they were defeated 3-2 (Incidently
both of the boys goals were on offsides.)
The play was rather unorthodox
with Harry Kermode and Howie
, Shadwell playing a very good
brand of soccer with touches of
brilliant bits of broken field running In the best football style and
a few wUd swings at the ball.
Players never kept their positions;
even the girls. It soon became
necessary for the girls to gang up
on the boys for their own safety.
The boys had some trouble try.
Ing to get past Helen Matheson
and Irene Pearce, the Halfbacks,
and have not yet solved their defence. Nonie Carruthers was
strong on the attack netting two
goals. Joan Clarke scored the
other. Harry Kermode and Bruce
Yorke tallied for the boys.
If the boys should happen to take
up grass hockey, which they admit
is a difficult game, Harry Kermode
would stiU be in the center slot,
however this time as center forward. Bruce York would have
been moved up to a forward position, most likely to right wing.
Howie Shadwell would now be a
fullback. Shad, Incidentally, was
the best player on the team, dashing here and there to intercept
players and passes.
Bud McLeod made frequent sallies into the opponents territory
as did the rest of the team but the
attacks fizzled out. Bud was also
playing a good blocking game but
blocking isn't allowed here. His
blocks were really a picture to
see but you can't do that there
The game was a lot of fun but
It was even better to see.

Soccerites Pick Up
Second Win Saturday
•    SHOWING INCREASING improvement and enthusiasm,
the Varsity Soccer Club picked up its second straight win
of the season Saturday afternoon when they downed the 11th
Ack Acks 3-1 at Kerrisdale Park.
The win marked Varsity's second
of the year, and may be attributed
to the fine coaching of Lorrie Baker, new soccer mentor. The fact
that Varsity played with only ten
men adds prestige to the victory.
Before their last week's triumph
over the Bond eleven, and this
week's success over the Army entry, the Varsity soccerites had still
to win a game in the league, having dropped their first four starts.
Manager Gordy Johnson expresses satisfaction with the way
the team is shaping up, and predicts a more successful season than
he had at first hoped for.
The line-up for Saturday's game
Scoring was open in the first
half when Les Moran tricked the
soldiers to make it 1-0. Pte. Bill
Smith then evened it up when
goalie Herb Smith failed to stop
a tricky header.
Jimmy Morton shot Varsity
ahead again before the end of the
half, with one of the nicest plays
of the game. A corner kick from
Gordy Johnson was tapped in by
Morton. Varsity came back after
the breather ahead 2-1.
Morton again shone in the second
half when he broke the scoring
stalemate with another brilliant
tally to complete the final score
of 3-1.
