PERT, VIVACIOUS NORA CLARKE, and captain of the
Varsity Thunderbirds, Dougie Reid, repeat the stunt that Reid
swears brought the Birds their first win in twelve games of tho
Pacific Northwestern Conference Series last Saturday.
Grid supporters will be out to see if the wish-bone gag
has any effect on the Pacific University game Saturday in the
Stadium at 2 p.m.

There are football players that are superstitious and there
are them that ain't. But UBC's gridiron heroes won't refuse
anything that might bring them a bit of luck in their current
Northwest Conference campaign,
 ■ ■ —«    Latest addition to the Thunderbirds
is a wishbone, but it's no ordinary
wishbone. This one belonged to the
late Knute Rockne, whose memorable
coaching feats with Notre Dame's
Fightin' Irish marked him as the
greatest grid coach of all times, And
furthermore, Rockne carried this luck
charm with him at every game during
his career at the football-famous
school. '
To Les Bewley, Ubyssey columnist,
goes credit for obtaining the priceless
breast-bone from some hapless bird.
Les came to realize the power of the
wishbone last Saturday. He had it in
his pocket while rooting the 'Birds
to their 27-7 win over Lewis and
Clark College, and he's convinced
that the charm-piece had something
to do with the famous initial UBC

UBC Choral Group
Jacques Singer, musical director of the Vancouver Symphony Society, will take charge of rehearsals of the Varsity
"Airborne Chorus" on Friday at 3:30 p.m. in Hut Ml, Jerry
Macdonald, president of the Literary and Scientific Executive,
announced yesterday.
"There   is   still   room   for   about   20*
more  in the chorus,"  Macdonald told
a Daily Ubyssey reporter. He also
mentioned that one did not have to
have exceptional singing ability to
join the choral group. "The Airborne
Symphony has been composed for
average  voices,"   declared  Macdonald.
The first rehearsal for the concert
will begin at 3:30 p.m. in Hut Ml.
Regular rehearsals at noons on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays in the
same  hut.  will  follow.

question ot whether those high-
stepping drum majorettes help
spur a fooball team to victory has
brought a rift 'between the students of McGill and the university
The senate has banned drum
majorettes and co-ed cheer leaders
from football games and for some
time McGill spirit has been exclusively   male-led.
Now the student body, with as
keen an eye for female beauty
as any group of undergraduates,
has demanded the "unconditional
surrender" of the senate.
Barbara Jackson, vice-president
of the McGill Women's- Union,
says drum majorettes, if they get
the official nod from the senate,
will be closely "regulated."
She assured the dubious that the
Women's Union  would  appoint  a
committee to control the "choice
and behavior of the girls and
would take full responsibility for
their actions."
The McGill Daily, campus newspaper has under taken an educational program to enlighten its
student readers on the use of ma-
joretes  and  cheer  leaders.
Tlie series is describing majorettes and cheer leaders at other
Canadian  universities.

Plans Pass With Amendments
Week Before Sod Turning
The long awaited UBC War Memorial Gymnasium leapt
into reality Wednesday night when a package of crisp blueprints received the final OK of the Planning Committee and
when the construction date was set for early in December.
The blueprints from Sharpe, Thomp-^ —— —
son, Berwick and Pratt, architects
for the project, were carefully studied
and passed with minor amendments.
The announcement of date of construction comes less than a week
from the formal sod turning scheduled
for  Armistice  Day,  November  11.
Although the exact location of tlie
ultra modern one half million dollar
unit is still in abeyance, the approximate site has been set for the corner
of University Boulevard and Western
The sod turning ceremony will be
held at this site, near the War Memorial Gymnasium  signboard.
The architects' plans, after final
amendment, will be approved by the
Planning Committee and passed to
the General Committee for final
authorization—expected within several weeks.
Included in the present plan will
be six bowling alleys, spacious locker
and shower facilities, boxing ring, a
supplementary gymnasium and a
snack bar.
The architects' design of the memorial hall entrance was turned down
at the meeting and altered to include
a balcony from which the huge two
story window forming an entire wall
of the hall would be visable.
Plans for the construction of the
swimming pool and additional gymnasium space are under consideration,
but will not be put into operation
until after the completion of the
presently planned unit.
Political Clubs
Get Major Rooms
New regulations concerning blanket
bookings were announced yesterday
by Grant Livingstone, president of
the AMS.
Three major rooms on the campus
have been allocated to five political
clubs who will work out their use
among themselves. Aggie 100 will be
available Monday at 12:30, Applied
Science 100 Tuseday at 12:30 and Arts
100 Wednesday at 12:30. However, tie
clubs may make normal bookings or
all minor rooms.

There is much thought being given at the
moment to the mass movement of Canadian
college graduates to the United States. Twice
within the past three weeks audiences connected with UBC have heard speakers describe the situation, in no uncertain terms.
as one about which, something should be
done. In a talk to students Colin Cameron, a
member of the CCF hierarchy in this province, described the emigrants as "cheats"
while Howard T. Mitchell, president of the
Vancouver Board of Trade, addressing alumni, termed the exodus "shameful".
When over 1000 grads pack up their
books and slide rules and go south, as happened last year, there can be no doubt that
there is something wrong somewhere. But,
we are inclined to disagree with Mr. Cameron's suggestion that the fault lies with
those individuals who cannot resist the lure
of "filthy lucre". As long as security is
measured in terms of dollars and cents no
man can be blamed for selling his services to
the highest bidder; not even university students who, after all, are only human.
While there is much to be said for what
appears to be a Canadian ideal, that of making money secondary in everyday life, it
would seem to be hypocritical to say that
Canadians do not think about wages just as
much as the so-called "money-grabbers" in
the U.S.
American business has long worked on
the theory that "it takes money to make
money" and the same type of reasoning
evidently applies when trained personnel is
hired. The average salary for a graduate who
goes to work in the U.S.  is from three to
five times as great as that offered for an
equivalent job in Canada. Yet there are those
who maintain that a sense of duty alone
should be of importance when the graduate
decides where he will put his university
training to use.
Besides the financial considerations any
Canadian graduate faced with the problem
of whether to go or stay must also take into
account the limited opportunity for advancement in Canadian industry. In this country
the belief that one must be an old businessman to be a good businessman seems to predominate. The mass exodus which Mv.
Mitchell termed "a challenge to Canadian
business" cannot be dealt with merely by
paying higher wages. Any self-Vespecting
individual wants to be reasonably assured
when he enters a job that he will not be held
back simply because he is not old enough lo
fill the job of board president, a position now
reserved for doddering old men.
It might even be desirable to adopt the
American system whereby likely prospects,
as a reward and incentive, are given shares in
the business after a year's time. Although
most of the Horatio legend is just so much
poppycock there is a small particle of truth
in it when a man can rise from the job of
salesman to the presidency of the world's
largest soap concern by the time he is 381
years old.
These are all hard facts which Canadian
businessmen will have to face if they hope to
keep future graduates of Canadian universities from following the well beaten path to
the land of chrofne plated bathtubs and seven-
passenger Lincolns.

Test Cases
Love In Blooms
The many "work holidays" taken
by John L. Lewis' coal miners in the
United States have often had strange
results. One result has been the growing tendency of present day authors
to sit home bundled up in their union
suits and overcoats writing love
stories. Some of these romatic flights
might even be called "great love
stories". But not Les Bewley's.
If you are a "sudoriferous little submersible" you will probably remember Bewley's contribution to the
cause of true love. It dealt with tho
hopeless passion of Valentine Lawless, the boy who waned a rose delivered to his heart's desire every
meatless Tuesday, for ever and ever,
Amen. He left his material wealth.
$4,000, to insure that a Western Union
messenger would arrive promptly
each week with the flower clamped
between his teeth.
But the lady in question took, what
is called in some quarters, a dim view
of the whole affair. Possibly because
she had married another, Mrs. Harold
Sutton said "I would not want the
rose now." Mr. Sutton's remarks on
the  subicct  are  not   recorded.
That is what Bewley calls the i
greatest love story of our time. If
sar'as of sanniimss can be termed
"great love stories" then this Lawless
encode ccrtainlv qualifies. Here is a
man who trades his evening clothes
for a uniform and Roes "over there"
to Rive his life in the service of his
country. But, while the cat was away
the little mouse played and Valentine's hopes ended up in the ashcan—
or. at least, they should have. Instead, he made another attempt to
gain a place in the heart that had no
room for him.
What  could  be  sweeter?
If this story has any significance it
merely indicates the hard hearted
indifference of the average female to
the feeling of men. What an obituary
for dead hopes! It's very sad—but he
was that kind of person'.
Any man who could let himself
pass beyond his pale with, figuratively
speaking, this name of a lady upon
his lips is the more than a little bit
unstable. That is especially true when
(he lady in Ihe plot had already
given. Ihe heave-ho.
By hal tennantI Another Sad Story
"This is the first time I've ever driven
with one arm," I told her as I shifted gears
with my knees.
I eafjed the old Chev into a space among
the squadron of cars beside the Armoury
and helped my girl out of the car. While the
ticket-taker frowned disapprovingly, I searched frantically for my Fall Ball tickets.
A moment later I gasped with delight at
the transformation that had taken place inside.
I helped her off with her coat, and
gently pulled a precious brown paper parcel
out of my own overcoat pocket.
We had little trouble finding our table.
I unwrapped the precious parcel, took the
cork out of the 26 and poured myself a small
one, which I drank.
The band was playing something dreamy,
so I asked my girl to dance. While I was
escorting her across the room a friend of
mine asked me to have a small glass of something, which I drank.
After the group we made our way back
to tho table. I peered underneath, where my
2U lay hidden and decided to pour myself a
short .snort, which I drank.
We had just settled down for another
drink, when the floor show began. We decided
to go out to the parking lot while it was on.
Before wo left 1 poured myself a .small one,
which I. drank.
Tho ticket-taker frowned disapprovingly
at the transformation that had taken place.
He examined my pass-out stubs as I gasped
with delight; at the weight: of the 2(> in my
overcoat pocket.
I helped her into the car of the door, and
finding a glass already in my hand, I poured
a small  one,  which I drank.
Presently, after having another drink,
we heard the music start up, so I opened the
car and made my way for the ticket-taker,
who gasped with delight at the transformation
that had taken place. T helped her off with
my coat and hid my 26 under the table after
pouring myself a drink which I drank.
The band was playing something, so I
asked my girl for a drink, which I drank.
We decided to go out into the parking lot
while the next dance was on, so I helped my
way to the door, which opened with delight
at the transformation that had taken place.
In the car I poured myself a drink, which
I think, I drank. We had little trouble finding
the back seat, and I proceeded to pour myself
a drink, which I drank. Presently after having a few drinks, I decided to go back to the
parking lot for another dance. Before leaving
I gasped with delight and poured myself
another, which I drank.
The ticket-taker frowned disapprovingly
at the drink, which I drank, and helped me
off with her coat.
I had a little trouble finding our
table, so I sat clown under it and poured
myself a drink, which I drank I think.
Presently the band began to play, so T decided
to ask my trip for a girl lo the parking lot.

I helped my 2(5 into the back seal and poured

and transformed with delight at the places
which had taken pass-out stubs,
I helped myself on with a drink and had
little trouble finding myself, who poured me
a small one, which I drank.
The ticket-taker had begun to pass out,
so I asked the door for my 2(5, which I drank.

Recall for the moment sudoriferous
ones, the grimy tale of Louise Overell
and her ex-boy friend. If you try
hard enough you will remember that
a yacht belonging to Louise' parents,
inillionares in a small way, blew up
one day in the harbor at Santa
Monica, California. So did Louise'
parents. This unhappy event left
Louise alone in the world with only
her friend and a couple of millions
for consolation.
There was a suspicion that Louise
and friend had some thing to clo with
the explosion. The belief was founded
upon the discovery of sundry explosives in Louise' car and also in
the shattered hulk of the family
In fact, there was such a strong
suspicion that the couple was subsequently hailed into court and tried
on the charge of murder. According
to evidence presented at the trial the
pair was in the habit of indulging
in nude chases around tho living room
of tho Overell mansion. While incarcerated (hey pasod notes back and

They   wore   very   much   in   love.

young lovers did not do what might

Dear Don:
Congratulations on the splendid
post-Homecoming edition of The
Daily Ubyssey. Although last Friday's
issue was somewhat disappointing (I
was hoping that your staff would produce something extra-special for
Homecoming as they have done in
years past), Tuesday's edition was
exceptionally pleasing, especially to
all the UBC athletes and supporters
who helped make the 1947 Homecoming such an outstanding success.
You are also to be commended on
your fine editorial regarding the
American football situation on the
campus. Athletics at UBC would
certainly return to its proper place
in the limelight if mere students took
the attitude which you so thoughtfully expressed therein.
My thanks go to the sports department, also, for I fully realize the
handicap under which they are working this year. Despite the loss of Sports
Editor Chick Turner, they have carried on, and with the assistance of
former sports editor, Laurie Dyer,
they have continued to present fine
coverage of UBC athletics to the student body.
Wishing you and your staff further
success in publishing the best campus newspaper in Canada fand one
of the best in North America), and
thanks again,

During the next week the Membership Committee will approach veterans on the campus with a view to
selling them on the merits of Canada's
largest Veterans' organization. Tlie
main appeal to student veterans is
that they should enter the organization, not with tho motive of getting
everything out of it they can, but
with the spirit of service, looking
upon it as the opportunity of making
a contribution to the general welfare
of all Canadian veterans and in so
doing, making an investment, And
while on that subject, Branch 72 has
carried on an intensive plan for assisting impecunious student veterans
under a Personal Loan scheme. This
scheme together with other allied
plans, is bogging down mainly because the funds necessary to it's successful operation are not available. As
you probably know, Branch 72 derives the money along these lines almost exclusively from dues. No dues
—no loan assistance. The answer is
simple. If you have not been able
to keep up to date with your clues
get them in now. If you are not a
member—one of the staff will be glad
to sign you up. kelp make this campaign a success. Sign up now.

adjectives "outstanding" and "inspiring" in the way he did, then he and
the rest of the UBC sheep can now
topple over the precipice of stupidity
for which they are headed. Mr.
Martin's speech was indeed a thing
of rare discernment. Where else could
he find such a dull, bovine, unimaginative collection of soggily open
minds but in a university? The former
acknowledged master of unintelligi-
bility, the tobacco auctioneer, would
have blushed for shame on hearing
the Hon. Minister. Every time a student asked an intelligent question he
was instantly crucified with an irre-
velant answer, while the educated,
the thinkers, the multitude, the recipients of Mr. Martin's pearls,
howled gleefully to nrove to the
world their fantastic collective mental
immaturity. Four stars to Mr. Martin?
One pair of bi-focal classes to Mr.

half of his carefully hoarded supply

itamoury Gets Face-Lifting
For Gala Cabaret Dance
Drab Parade Ground Becomes
Scene of Colorful Fiesta
Bright shafts of colored light will play over a gay Latin-
American scene, and a formerly drab parade ground will become
a brilliant fiesta square when the Annual Fall Ball opens in
the UBC Armoury next Thursday, November 13.
Thousands of feet of ply-board, begged, borrowed and
stolen will completely transform the cold military atmosphere
of the Armoury into a warm, vibrant panorama of equatorial
"Joie de vivre," with a Latin
American accent back-grounded by a clicking castinet will be
the theme of the elaborate Fall
Ball Cabaret.
Entering the main door of
the building couples will be
greeted by the snowy expanse
of linen-covered cabaret tables,
partially surrounding a large,
diagonal, glassy-smooth dance-
To the right of the entrance,
dancers will be conducted to a
large check-room, filing the entire southeast corner of the
building. Manned by capable
attendants, the check-room will
cut to a minimum the usual
queues and congestions.
A platoon of waiters will
show parties to more than 300
previously reserved tables.
To the right and in front
of the tables a large spacious
lounge will extend, fan-shaped,
from the northeast corner unto
the dance floor. Along the west
wall another large lounge will
lead off the dance floor. Both
lounges will be furnished with
soft easy chairs and chesterfields, discretely lighted and
screened from the dance floor
by colorful partitions. Both
lounges will be elevated to afford good views of the enter
Adjoining the tables to the left of
the entrance and forming a large
square will be a massive buffet table
staffed by more than a dozen attendants to provide refreshments for tlie
dancing couples.
Facing the polished dance floor in
the northwest comer will be the
elevated bandstand. Bright streamers-'
leading from ceiling to bandstand in a
dazzling sunburst of autumn color
will form a massive canopy over he
foot-lighted orchestra stage.
Lockers will have disappeared, as if
by magic, under the mantle of hundreds of yards of drapes and bunting.
The massive colonnades flanking the
somber walls will recede under long
swaths of dark curtain.

night of the Fall Ball is shown in the top sketch. Key to

When it is fall at UBC it is spring in the land of the Spanish
south of the equator. What could be more appropriate than to
have the entertainment for the Fall Ball spring from there and
fall here?
If there is an answer to that, it
melted in the lush warmth of whirling caballeros and blushing aenoritas.
It dissolved in the stream of dancing
feet-sans duennas.
It died in the ultra-violet of dazzling color.
Yes, the theme of the Fall Ball
entertainment is Spanish. Spanish
dancing, Spanish singing and Spanish
instrumentation will transform the
Armouries into a revolution of exploding enjoyment.

excellent base for the transplanting

Thursday, November 6, 1947
(Hie following is an open letter to the student body
from Grant Livingstone, President of the Alma Mater
A week from today Students' Council are confidently
hoping to be among a couple of thousand students enjoying
themselves thoroughly at the biggest social function ever
attempted on the campus—USC's 1947 Fall Ball.
Moreover,, we are confidently hoping that its success will
serve as a precedent for many more successful functions of
this sort on the campus.
We say "hoping" because holding the Fall Ball in the
Armouries instead of downtown is what is called a "calculated
risk". But we add "confidently" because there are good reasons
both for taking that risk and for thinking it is a good one.
It's a good risk chiefly because it will be so much better a
party than it would be downtown. By using a hall which is
free to us through the kind permission of the COTC, instead
of one that costs $1200 they are able to spend more on tlie
extras, put on a better party, but still charge only half as
much admission.
Moreover, more people can enjoy it because the hall is
larger; more people can find more room to dance; dress will
be optional, with the party just as impressive but less formal.
It is also a good risk because we feel that the policy set by
Council for holding functions out here is more democratic and
bound to be more popular.
That policy, adopted by the fall general meeting, was in
these terms:
"In view of the fact that adequate facilities for most social
functions exist on the campus and are virtually free to the
Society, the Council will seek to use these facilities whenever
possible for all usual functions and apply the money saved
to expanding the number of social functions at minimum
admission prices."
That policy was recommended by Council with the dual
purpose of, saving direct subsidy expenditures on downtown
functions and of making more social functions come within
the budgeting reach of the average student—married students
especially, who can't don formal dress and fork out six dollars,
taxi fare and extras, but who are just as anxious to come lo
"the event of the term."
That can be done, but it can only be done by using our
own campus halls for free. USC's Fall Ball will be the "test
case" of this policy.
In saying we are confident of its success we are counting,
of course, on the support of the students for whom this policy
was designed. We feel we are one solid ground, and we're
getting our table reservation early.
With congratulations to USC's committee, under Ralph
Huene, and to Jerry Macdonald, for their courage, imagination
and energy in planning what is to be the outstanding social
event of '47-'48, we give you this slogan: "More fun for more
people for less money" at the 1947 Fall Ball in the Armoury.
See you Thursday night,
Fall Ball officials denied this
week the recent rumor that the
date of the Ball had been changed
to November 12, a day earlier
than announced.
Tho Ball will definitely be held
on Thursday, November 13, officials stated.
So-Called "Hot"
Food Out—Jerry
Instead of the usual so-called "hot"
buffet supper, the Fall Ball this year
will feature an intentionally cold
salad plate, including a double chicken
sandwich, olives, pickles, buttered
rolls and coffee, says Jerry Macdonald,
LSE president.

The Daily Ubyssey has taken a back seat to the Fall Bail
Committee of the Undergraduate Societies Committee.
The Fall Ball committee has bought, paid for, and produced this special supplement of the Daily Ubyssey.
Opinions expressed on these two pages are those of the
Fall Ball committee and not necessarily those of the Editorial

"Sure I'd like to be an M.C.
What's it stand for—Master of
the Cueball?"
With these historical words,
24-year-old Bob Weir straightened up from an Acadia camp
pool table and promised a Fall
Ball committeeman that he
would handle the emcee's spot
in the big affair next Thursday.
But acting as master of ceremonies
is not so foreign to him as the gag-
happy Mr. Weir would let on.
During his three and a half years in
the Army, the second-year law student sparked many service shows
with the gay antics that are everyday
stuff to this voluptuous funster.
Many students will recall the emcee-
ing he has done on several occasion

born gagmen is like trying to compete with a half hour of Bob Hope's

question in sidewaws, and if you do,
Bob Weir is certain to riddle the
answer with imaginative wanderings.
Fortunately, this scribe was able
to corner the Fall Ball m.c. on a
Saturday morning, a time when the
gags aren't flowing out of him at the
usual rate of six a minute. And the
usually twinkling eyes twinkled a
little less, looking as if their lids
could use a couple of match sticks
for propping-up purposes.

the press wanted to know.
"Oh, I registered for law when I

Seven Candidates Named;
Law May Send Entry Yet
Queen of UBC's annual Fall Ball wil be elected from one
of eight beauties representing various faculties and departments
on the campus during the gala cabaret dance in the Armoury
next Thursday night.
Ubyssey Photos By Tommy Hatcher
At press time only seven of the'
co-ed candidates, had been selected
by members of the groups they represent, but officials were expecting entries also from among law undergraduates.
Representing the faculty of Arts
and Science is dark-haired, 19-year-
old Mary Mare, a third-year student.
She stands five foot six inches and
weighs 125 pounds.
Betty McKendry, Home Ec candidate, is the smallest of the present
nominees. The 19-year-old blond is
five foot five inches tall and weighing
118 pounds.
Marguerite Davies, 21, attractive
fourth-year co-ed was elected "Miss
Commerce" for the Fall Ball contest.
Miss Davies is five fot five inches tall
and weighs 124 pounds.
"Glamazon" of the group, Beverly
Burley five foot eight inches tall, is
a   20-year-old   candidate   whom   the
Physical Ed supporters believe will
stand head and shoulders above the
others—in more ways than one. A
third-year student, Miss Burley is
blond, blue-eyed, weighs 135 pounds.
Choice of the Aggies is Peggy McDonald, whose Ave foot, four inch
frame weighs 118 pounds. She is 20
years old, and is enrolled in third-
year Agriculture.
Youngest of the six is petite, redheaded Betty-Jean Goodale, who is
just 18 years of age. Standing five foot
three inches and weighing 118, she
has the support of the Applied Science
faculty in which she is a first-year

Music By Nightingale
Is All-Student Effort
Most students are quite familiar with the name of Frank
Nightingale and His Orchestra, who will be featured at this
year's Fall Ball.
But probably only a few realize that the musicians are all
UBC undergraduates representing the cream of the Varsity
crop in the dance band field.
Being leader of one of the most
popular dance orchestras in Vancouver didn't just happen to the unassuming alto saxophonist. Before the last
six years, during which time he has
been playing alto and clarinet, Frank
Nightingale put in a solid eight-year
grind at the piano keyboard.
After taking up the two reed instruments, he put in many hours with
notable local musicians, playing casual
jobs for other leaders before joining
up with the Varsity musicians.
Last year the UBC boys needed
someone to front their outfit, and the
stocky Magee graduate stepped in to
fill the gap.
Five of this year's crew are newcomers to the group.
Newly instated in the respective
solo trumpet and solo tenor sax chairs
are Vic Keeting and Doug Smithers.
Keeting is a Victoria lad who is
fast gaining a reputation around town
for his Dizzy Gillisple style of horn
blowing. Although lacking Gillespie's
extremely high range, Keeting's style
displays a keen understanding of
chord patterns and progressions.
Solo tenor man Doug "Smitty"
Smithers, whose six-foot, four-inch
frame dwarfs the other bandsmen,
shows particular brilliance in his
melodic interpretation of sweet
On the piano bench is a man who

Clarify Stand
Members of the Discipline Committee will play no role of Gestapo
agents at the Fall Ball, officials told
The Daily Ubyssey Monday.
"We will certainly not go out of our
way to make charges, much less make
unreasonable charges," chairman
Rosemary Hodgins said in an interview.
"The role of the Discipline Committee at both the Fall Ball and the
recent Homecoming is identical,"
AMS President Grant Livingstone
pointed out.
"They will just be there to see that
there is no drunkenness, disorderly
conduct or clearly evident drinking,"
he said.
Inquiries were made by the press
in an effort to track down the rumor
that the AMS code's Article XI (prohibiting liquor consumption at University affairs) is to be unreasonably
enforced. For the most part, officials
denied the rumor.
"We're not going to go around
peeking under tables," Miss Hodgins
Discipline Committee members said
they intend to enforce the same legislation as exists in all other public
places in the Province.
Penalies for the violation of exisitng
regulations, officials stated, will be

charge: removal from the cabaret,
confiscation of liquor, or bringing up

Philpott Scores
Economic System
The capitalist system cannot be
maintained "except under a program
of systematic shortages." This was
the conclusion reached by Elmore
Philpott, Vancouver newspaperman,
when he addressed student Socialist
Wednesday noon.
"Our capitalist system exists only
because of profits and profits can only
be had when there are less goods than
the public needs. No profiits and the
system ceases to tick. No tick no
jobs and we all know what happens
then,"   he   declared.

the last two great wars !\Tr. Philpott
continued: ''The only time full employment can be attained under capitalism i.s during wars.
''Unless things are changed the
same thine' will happen in the U.S. is
happened in Germany. There will be
an armanonl race in an effort to provide full employment and then the
arms will have to be used. It i.s a
terrifying thought."

This is Stage's first season at Pacific University, having come from

has had varied coaching experience

UBC may lack, the team certainly

Ivor "Pop'' Wynnn, boss of the

until Wednesday, November 12.
Starting time still is scheduled for
12:30 p.m.
Vancouver's balmy weather Is the
reason offered by Wynn for the postponement. Said Wynn, "We don't
want to discover a swimming star,
this race is just designed to determine
the Varsity cross country champ."
When it was decided to move the
date of the race ahead, Monday was
suggested as the new date. However, Wynn, ever considerate, re
membered that Tuesday would be a
holiday, and many of the boys would
probably want to go home for the
long weekend, thus Wednesday will
be the big day, weather permitting.

Fern Intramural basketball played
in the Gym Tuesday featured a
slim 8-G Arts II win over a Nurses'
quintet, while the Phys Ed III melon-
misses continued their winning ways
by dumping Aggies 10-2.
The first game was strictly a one-
woman show with Gretehen Mathers
scoring all the winning team's baskets.
The losers' points were chalked up
by Upham, Campbell, and Vincent.
Phys Ed III and Aggies actually
put on a better exhibition of basketball although the lop-sided score
would seem to indicate otherwise. The
score was tied at two-all at the end
of the first half, but the Phys Ed girls
ran wild in the second frame scoring
no less than four baskets without an
answer from the Aggies.
The Nickel refinery at Port Colborne is the
second largest consumer of electric power in all
Canada. Large blocks of power for Nickel mining
and smelting in the Sudbury area are obtained from
six different generating plants in Northern Ontario.
Electrical supplies to the value of more than half
a million dollars yearly are purchased by the
Canadian Nickel industry.
And all through the electrical industry, Nickel and
its alloys bring greater efficiency. In huge valves
in hydro-electrical plants Nickel increases resistance to wear; in pole line hardware it gives
strength; in heating elements Nickel is strong at high
temperatures; in precision instruments Nickel pro*
vides special magnetic or non-magnetic properties.
So the Canadian Nickel worker produces the nickel
needed by the electrical industry; the electrical
worker generates the power and builds
the electrical equipment required by the
Nickel industry. Each and every industry
in this country creates employment in
other industries. No matter how we earn
a living, we are all one jamily, depend-
[Ik    ing on each other.
