 Cheers, Songs, Yells, Snake Parade Feature High Spirited Pep-meet of Rejuvenated Arts Faculty
looked on with sad faces Thursday as the ailing Arts
body suddenly came to life and paraded about the campus
in an enthusiastic display of faculty spirit. Efforts of the in-
halator squad of the Arts executives paid off on the daily
double at the Arts 100 pep meet as Artsmen and Artswomen
crowded the room to sing and sway their shyness away. The
picture on the extreme left captures the gayety of the occasion as the pep meet reaches a new high in enthusiasm.

The Directory contains the
names, addresses and most important of all, the telephone numbers of nearly all the students on
the campus. There are a few students who will not have thefr
names in the manual because their
cards came over from the Registrar's office too late to even be included in the Too Late To Classify Section.
Although there will not be
enough copies to go around to all
the students today, more copies
will be available on Monday. After that date, the Directory will

The lateness of registration, tho
lack of help in typing and printing has made the Directory later

It is hoped that its publication
at this time will enable all students to get dates for the forthcoming Fall Ball on Thursday.

UBC's Parade at
Fall Ball Meet Tuesday
• ALL OVER the campus, in the past few days, students
have been running into placards of all eight of the "Miss
UBC" candidates.
Even Science 200 has a sign imploring the undergraduates to
vote for Dolores Truer at the ball.
In Arts 100 Peggy Holt is sponsored and in Arts 108 the name of
Phyllis Ney greets the eye of every student who enters the room.
The ei,;ht candidates are Dolores
Traer of the Nursing faculty, Peggy Holt of Commerce, and Phyllis
Ney of fourth year Arts, Jackie
Robinson of lirst ycar Arts. Dale
Coughlin of second ycar Arts,
Joan Clarke of third yt-ar Arts,
Joan Stevens  of  Agriculture,  and
Sylvia Dyson of i'ome Economics.
All eight girls will be presented
to their admiring public in the
Fall Ball pep meet next Tuesday-
noon in the Auditorium. They will
then be formally introduced to the
people who can use thus golden
opportunity to make their 'Miss

prefers the first posible outcome
of this present situation, conscrip-
tion, to the other two he suggested. Thus he hopes there will be
no split between French-speaking
and  English-speaking Canadians.
He spoke of the second probable
result, that of the annexation of
all of Canada to the United States.
That would not please the French-
Canadians as, once annexed, they
would have the same restrictions
as do those of French origin in tne
state of Maine. In other words,
they would have to speak English
and would lose their minority
For the third outcome, the popular speaker mentioned a solution that would definitely not
meet with the approval of the
French-Canadian leaders. He suggested that if there was a split, the
English-speaking Canadians, in
anger, would tear up the existing
constitution and would draw up a
new one which would, in all probability, proclaim English as the
official language.

He deplored the fact that the
Roman Catholics in French Canada are not as "enlightened as
those in Nova Scotia, and Cape

that "thc stronest "rench clement

Wars was the high French clergy
and not  tho  parish  priest."

between the high financiers of

Arts Lives Again
After 'Peppy' Meet
•   MORE THAN 300 Artsmen packed Arts 100 to yell and
sing for their faculty in a stormy Arts pep-meet Thursday
noon. The music and songs, yells and cheers, culminated in
a shouting snake parade that wound across the campus,
through the Caf, and ended before the Science Building. The
parade on the campus was the first in many years.

NOVEMBER 18,1944
And it Came to Pass
UBC students of the year 1944-45 will
always remember the "great Arts revival".
November 16, 1944 will live long in the
minds of all under-graduates. The event will
probably be commemorated for years to
For on that date we saw the impossible.
That dormant entity, Arts Spirit, breathed
anew on this campus. It panted its way
across the campus in a triumphant surge of
new-found power. For the first time in a
sorry history, the Artsmen were united.
The common question now is "How can
we keep the Artsmen down?"
The Arts executives believe that Arts-
men will have to be "toned down" now
because of several incidents last Thursday.
They believe, and we agree, that inter-faculty rivalry should never again be allowed
to come so close to the danger point.
We applaud the efforts of the Artsmen
to unify their faculty, but we also point out
to both the Artsmen and Engineers that
UBC wants friendly, rather than malicious
It is a credit to Artsmen and Engineers
Canadian Unity
Members of Parliament are rushing
back to Ottawa this week to attend one of
the most important sessions of the House
of Commons. Canadian unity, that favorite
debating topic, will be the vital issue of the
This thing called unity, which we all
discuss, but never do anything about, now
holds the attention of every Canadian. The
other issues, conscription and reinforcement
of the Army, are important at this time, but
our prime concern is unity. t
The government must find the necessary
troops for our European Armies. Whether
conscription or the voluntary system is best
for this is up to those in charge. To have a
fully-manned Army on a voluntary basis
would be a source of pride for all Canadians.
If this is not possible, then the only alternative is conscription.
But whatever our appointed experts
decide it is up to the whole of Canada to
follow. Some people have said that the
English speaking Canadians must concede
the conscription question to the French
speaking Canadians for the sake of unity.
that nothing happened Thursday which we
all would regret today. The Engineers showed true UBC spirit by staying away from
the Arts affair and disregarding the taunts
of the snake paraders.
A few Engineers could not hold themselves back, but they see their mistake now.
The Artsmen know they should not have
paraded before the Science building. The
mob spirit can even get the best of university students.
Under the intelligent leadership which
both faculties are blessed with this year,
Artsmen and Engineers can continue their
friendly rivalry, their faculty spirit, and at
the same time work for their university.
The Engineers welcome Artsmen back
into the fold of student activities. The Arts-
men did the impossible, and it is up to the
Artsmen to continue the impossible. Let's
hear no more talk of squelching Arts energy.
Instead, let's divert it into other channels.
Let us divert it into channels which we on
The Ubyssey would be proud to report in
our columns, instead of snake parades, paper
throwing and hose fights.
.This was all very well when the voluntary
system was working, but if it is breaking
down, the situation changes. It is up to the
French speaking Canadians to concede.
We must admit the difference of opinion
exists. We must also admit that the question
can be solved. We have faith in French-
Canadians. We think that they too believe
in the land where they live and its future.
We think that Canadian unity will work itself out through members of parliament voting to follow whichever course they deem
necessary for the existence of Canada.
Several thousand miles from the scene
we argue very idealistically. It seems to us,
however, that what this country needs is a
leader who can capture the imagination of
the people and develop their enthusiasm for
Canada. We need someone to express those
ideals in the language of the people.
As the people of the United States voted
against isolationism for the good of their
country and the world, so must Canadians
forget their sectional differences of opinion
and vote for the good of Canada. It took a
great leader to accomplish this below the
border. Have we one in Canada?

• THE OTHER day when I made one of
my infrequent trips through the Arts
Common Room, I happened to notice a
rather queer assortment of signs on the
notice board.
There were two large multi-colored
signs posted on the ends of the board and
a sign advertising that the Mamooks would
make signs or posters for clubs or organizations, in the middle.
_.,  To me this  was  very
Ordinarily there would
be nothing odd about it, but
as it happened, neither of the
signs on the ends of the
board were made by the
Mamooks. They did npt have
m the required Mamook stamp
P_ on them.
"4» The sign in the middle,
the one allegedly made by
the Mamooks to advertise themselves, and
so their sign-making, was so badly made
that it took at least two looks to tell what
it was supposed to say.
The sign will probably keep more clubs
away from the Rainbow Room than it will
bring. But then, that might be a good thing
It is a well known fact that this year
the Mamooks are having a very hard time
trying to keep up with all the orders for
signs and posters which the various clubs
and organizations have submitted.
You know it, I know it, the club presidents know it and the Mamooks know it. We
all know it only too well.
We have all seen the posters which have
been appearing on the campus since the beginning of the term.
There have been good posters and bad
ones, but the standard has been fairly high—
for the ones which have actually hit the
I do not know the ratio of posters made
and the orders submitted, but I could hazard
a guess that it is in the neighborhood of 3:4.
Going by these figures (although I
would not vouch for them to a Mamook), we
see that some of the posters will not get
done. Then it logically follows that the least
important of them will be left out. This
frequently happens.
The posters with the highest priorities
are made first and the others are left until
later, but when later comes there are usually
more high priority posters to be done.
A pat on the back may not mean very
much to the members of the Mamooks who
paint the signs and posters, in view of what
I have said in the previous paragraphs, but
regardless of that, I think that they are
doing a wonderful job. It is just that there
are so few who have to do so much for
so many.
The mere fact, that the Mamooks cannot
make signs for every organization, because
of the extreme shortage of sign-makers, will
not stop an organization from wanting one
or needing one.
Club presidents go elsewhere to get
their signs made. They may make them
themselves, get friends to make them, or
have them made professionally—but they
get them made.
Any of these three procedures is illegal
according to the Code of the Alma Mater
Society. That is, they are illegal unless the
signs so made are approved and stamped
by the Mamooks.
This all gets us back to the group of
notices in the Arts Common Room: two illegal non-Mamook signs sandwiching a useless Mamook sign.
It is up to Ron Grantham, president of
the Mamooks, to enforce the proper rules
regarding signs and posters on the campus.
It is by the enforcement of these regulations
that a high standard of signs and posters can
be attained.

Dear Sir:
It would be useless to pretend
that the members of the Players'
Club were not hurt by the reception given Eugene O'Neill's "In
the Zone." The devastating effect
of the hilarious attitude of the
audience on the morale of the
actors and the club members in
general, is no doubt Incomprehensible to most of the students who
attended, many of whom left the
house seemingly unaware of any
failings in their  conduct.
Why was the play received In
such a manner? Neither the play
nor the acting was at all hammy,
sage student critics assure us. "We
would have wept had the others
not been laughing," a coed's remark, typifies the attitude of the
audience. The roots of the unseemly levity must therefore lie
elsewhere. I dare not suggest thct
an audience of UBC students is
incapable of digesting an O'Neill
play, in doing so I would expose
myself to the lethal slings and arrows of the Dept. of Education.
Here is my explanation. There
are certain frustrated individuals
who take roost In front seats at
every  student  performance,  bar
ring piano recitals and symphony
concerts. These individuals are
never seen before the public
themselves, and are allegedly
scornful of any indication of exhibitionism. However, these individuals, in giving catcalls and cues
for hilarity, admit that they are
deeply jealous of those performing
on the stage.
Au'revoir, little individuals, see
you again at the Spring Play.
Yours very truly,
A new bride was asked what the
had found the biggest thrill of
marriage. "It was thrilling when
George took me to the license bureau. The wedding ceremony was
n big thrill. Signing the hotel register as 'Mr. and Mrs.' was a bigger thrill, but I do believe my
biggest thrill was thumbing my
nose at the house detective."

Three  Point  Program
•   THREE KINDS of meetings will constitute the new program of the Social Problems Club for 1944-45, stated
Don Brown, SP<J president.
Study groups led by some well-
informed leader will form the first
type of meeting. With the membership relatively fixed, these
groups will probably base their
studies on one book as the outline.
Expanded discussion groups will
feature special speakers. This second kind of meeting will take
place at noon hour, and will deal
with the topics of the study
Outstanding public speakers will
form the program of the third
type of meeting. Open to the student   body,   these   meetings will

When the Burlington "Zephyr" sped like a silver bullet
on its first run from St. Paul to Chicago in 1934, the fame
of a new structural material rang around the world. True,
Stainless Steel had been used as early as 1916, but for the
first time the amazing strength and rust proof qualities of
Stainless Steel were utilized by modern designers and
engineers to revolutionize railway construction. This new
train was completely encased in Stainless Steel (8%
Nickel, 18% Chromium), so thin—yet so strong—
that weight and operating costs were reduced,
and hours cut oft its running time.
Soon   this   alloy   was  being   used   in   air*
planes, automobiles, hotel  and  hospital
kitchens, in the pulp and paper, oil and
chemical    industries.     Another    new
market for Nickel with far-reaching
peacetime possibilities was thus developed to replace and overshadow
the war markets lost in 1918.
Today   Canadian   Nickel   is   again
diverted   to   war   purposes,   and
again  the industry looks  to the
future   with   confidence.     Plant
are ready to develop and expand
old and new peacetime markets,
so that the Nickel Industry may
continue  through  its  own  ini-
tiative and enterprise, to make
still   greater   contributions   to
Canada's welfare.

2B     KINO     STREET    WEST,    TORONTO the gospel
according to
• OPENING my mail the other
morning, I was surprised more
than somewhat
to find a swell
epistle from our
old friend and
ex - co - worker
Eileen McKillop.
Eileen is now
in the Air Force
at Calgary and
writes an interesting letter
which is exceptional for a
former coed
sports reporter.
What amazed me was the number of familiar names she strung
off—names of guys and gals she
haa met in her travels. Here, I'll
let you read the letter, and you'll
see what 1 mean:
Dear Luke,
Hi there chief. What's the latest dope? From the Ubysseys
which my old pal Shad (Howard
Shadwell) sends me, I gather that
the callibre of this year's basketball teams Is pretty good.
Talking about basketball, I ran
into your coasin Jack Pomfret and
his pal Stan Nicol the other night.
They arrived here that morning
and were playing for the Fliers'
basketball team that night. The
last I heard of him, ne was cavorting around the SS'C Gym pushing a'basketball for No. 9 CMU.
According to him, the last he
heard of me, I was playing basketball back east.
I also ran into Ritchie Nicol and
Harold MacKenzie of the Currie
Barracks team. Both were at UBC
last year on the Army Course.
Lome Ross, former Domino player,
Li coach of one of the teams here.
Remember Bob ScarabeUi, the
Vancouver College football and
basketball player? He's playing
for the Shepherd Wolves, another
Air Force team In this town. At
present they're tied for first place
with the U.S. Army Air Corps
Talking about the Yanks, you
should have seen the game between the Yanks and No. 3 Fliers.
For the last ten minutes of the
game, everyone in the place was
sitting on edge. There was never
more than three points difference.
What a game! 1 can see it yet.
It was one of those games where
the lead changed hands with every basket scored. The final score
was 49-48 for the Yanks. Jack
Pomfret was really a standout for
the Fliers.
"Tiny" Thompson, the former
National Hockey Leage star, is
sports officer here, so we have
quite a  collection of athletes.
I've run into quite a few kids
from Vancouver lately. 1 met Art
Peers, the Phi Kappa Sig; Zeke
Davies, who played on the UBC
American football team; Ernie
Errioo and Don Inkster.
When I was back east, I met
Don Livingstone and Betty Harvey, Campbell Williams, Russ
Manson and Jack Lights tone. I
also hear from your old pal Bill
Morlock once in a while, too. (Editor's note: Bill happens to be
right here in the city on leave
these days.)
Well, Luke, I can't think of any
more of the kids or news right
now so I'll close now in order to
get this in tonight's mail. 'Bye
for now, Luke.
That awful WD,

• BRILLIANT SCRUM HALF—Here is Gerry Jenvey, diminutive receiving half of UBC showing how a star
halfback scoops out the ball to his three-line. He will be seen in action this afternoon in the Stadium at 3 o'clock
when Ex-Britannia will meet the UBC fifteen. Jenvey will be in there to instill in his teammates enough of his spark for
them to go out and win the struggle. Now that it is getting close to the first McKechnie Cup game, it would be appreciated if a few hundred students would come out and cheer the players on to victory.
Stars In Third Year Of Rugger
by Fred Crombie
Gerry Jenvey Tries for McKecknie Team
• GERRY JENVEY, diminutive
receiving half of the UBC
Blue and Gold, has burst forty into the limelight on the wings of
a spectacular jump from High
School Bantam Ruby to where he
ii battling Johnny Wheeler for the
receiving half position on the McKechnie Cup team in the short
span of the years.
This being only his second year
at Varsity, Coach Doswell should
be able to develop him in the
coming years into a star who will
not soon be forgotten.
It was not until he was ln his
last year at Kitsilano High that
Gerry started his rugger career.
Playing inside three-quarter that
season, he led his team to the Inter
High Championship, scoring seven
tries during regular league competition. His 21 points not only
led the Kltsles In scoring, but also
the whole circuit.
Last year Jenvey played with
the Frosh team, showing up very
well even though he had only one
season of experience behind him.
In the playdowns for the Tisdall
Cup in the spring. Gerry surprised
everyone by topping the starry
Dougie Reid and the rest of the
rugger stalwarts in the Vancouver
Rugby Football Union in the individual standings again chalking
up 21 points. However, this tinr*
he showed his deadly kicking ability in scoring nine converts and a
penalty kick.
For this great achievement he
was named to the McKechnie Cup
squad but failed to appear in the
starting lineup, the management
deciding that he was not heavy
enough for such a strenuous series. He was therefore kept in
readiness in case there was an injury to one of the baekfleld men
being able to play anywhere in
the three-line as well as fullback
and his regular scrum half position.
This season Jenvey has been the
spark of the UBC outfit right from
the ftart of the season.
Not being particularly speedy
like Ralston and Croll, he shows
great ability In being able to outwit his foes Just by using his head.
When one thinks of the fact that
this Is only his third year in the
game It becomes almost impossible
to understand how he progressed
so rapidly.
Another fine quality that Jenvey possesses is his ability to keep
cool and collected, never getting
excited, but consistently chattering to keep the forwards fighting
throughout the whole sixty minutes.
His lack of poundage has been
his most serious handicap as was
clearly shown when the Vancouver Reps met the Thunderbirds in
the Homecoming game on Oct. 28.
The 135 pound halfback was play
ing his regular position in place of
Johnny Wheeler, who was playing fullback.
But after taking a merciless
pounding In the first Ave minutes
of the contest, Doswell moved him
back to fullback, bringing In
Wheeler to set up the plays for
the three-line,
Although he Is quite familiar at
the fullback spot, Jenvey would
not be happy playing that position
as was seen when he carried the
ball from deep In the Birds' territory up to mid-field to start the
three-quarters on their merry way
several times.
He has not had much chance to
figure in the scoring this year as
yet because of the fact that UBC
has not had a very successful season and thus they have given him
very few tries to convert. Harry
Kabush has had to have some experience in place-kicking for  the
Thunderbirds so Gerry has split
the kicking duties with him.
However, there are still the Tisdall and McKechnie Cups to follow Miller Cup play and he will
undoubtedly lead his team out of
the doldrums into a challenging
place in the league standings.

'Bugs Down Fighting Irish
• VARSITY'S Thunderbugs continue to ride high on top of
the 'Y' Division of the Inter B setup after another victory Thursday
night at King Ed. Gym. Taking
a 30-23 tilt from Vancouver College, the Studes won their fifth
game of the year with only one
loss to plague them.

"• SO THIS CUTE little coed comes up to me and says, she says, "What
have you got against life in general that you always have to be
snarling at someone in your column. Of course, she doesn't realize that
a column with a gripe is much easier to write than any other kind, but
anything to please my reader. Today I make a special effort to be nice.
The volleyball schedule is coming along nicely and the way things
are shaping up it looks like Mu Phi versus Kappa Sigma in the finals.
This should really show up some top-flight volleyball. Mu Phi eked
out a win over last year's champions, the DU's, in the best game so
far this year. While they are not a particularly tall team, the Mu Phi's
play a smart, steady game and are particularly good on recoveries. We
rate them as having an even chance in the playoff.
Yesterday at noon we had the first serious accident in intramurals
in several years. The safety record has been very good and this is
really one exception that proves the rule. In the last half of a touch
football game against the Sigma Phi Delts, Al McLean of the DU's fell
and dislocated his left shoulder.
It looked as though it was quite an ordinary fall but somehow his
shoulder got to the ground first with the resulting injury. The game
stopped and Johnny appeared with his little stretcher. The shoulder
appeared to be broken but an X-Ray showed a dislocation.
I heard some fellows asking why the Touch Football schedule was
taking so long this year and I offer the following word's of excuse for
tho Intramural assistant. I can't cite a typical case as there never are
any in intramurals, but here's a story of why one game is taking so long.
This i.s the story of the DU-Sigma Phoo (now I'm a poet) game. Il
was first scheduled about three weeks ago. At that time the Sigma Phi
Delts defaulted, being unable to get a team out on short notice. The
DU's agreed  to a replay  and  it started  yesterday.
In the last half, with the Sigma Phoos leading, the aforementioned
accident took place and the DU'.s were unable to finish the game. The
Sigma Phoos graciously decided that the game should be replayed once
more, the series now, more or less, standing at one game apiece. Wc
hope to get the game in early next week, but mark my words, it's goine
to snow on Sunday.
Varsity had the situation well
in control right from the opening whistle. At the end of the
first quarter they had piled up 11
points without any retalliation
from the Collegiates. They had
another two points before the College team came through with their
first basket.
At the half, Coach Pete McGeer
started mixing up his tines in.as
many ways as he could find in a
more or less experimental manner. It seems he found some good
lines for the game was on ice at
the end of the third quarter.
Three of thc Blue and Gold boys
were particularly handy ln swishing their shots. Doug Davidson
was high man with nine points
while Cliff Henderson and Gordle
Lade were right behind him with
eight and seven respectively.
Walsh's eight points were high for
thc Fighting Irish.
In the other two games of the
night. McGavins gave Duke of
Connaught a rather thorough
trouncing to the tune of 44-15, and
St. Andrews-Wesley came out on
top over tiie West Van entry 40-
34 in the nightcap. The latter
turned out to be one of the better games of the year. Both teams
had plenty of fighting spirit a.id
they put on a great show for th '
crowd. The Gibson quintet lost
at the foul lino, missing 17 free
throws, whil? the Lancers wero
bagging 15.
Here are the results of the Varsity game:
Varsity—Lade ". Hough 2, McLeod, 4, Davidson 9. Henderson 8.
Rae,   Welsh,   Wright.     Total   30.
Vancouver College—Grey, Bayne
