"BROWN OCTOBER ALE" is the theme of the vocal efforts of

of Mussoc's "Robin Hood."

went into the room with thc hope of
catching a little of the spirit of the
treatre. Wc caugth the spirit but were
also almost ensnared by one over-
zealous make-up girl. Seeing us
standing there just inside the door,
she rushed up, waving a couple of
grease mits and yelling, "You stand
right over there," pointing in the
direction of a mirror," and put some
of this goo on your face while I
finish these two "foresters" and this
"milk-maid." Hastily we declined, explaining that we were just tourists,
lost, and looking for the exit.
Backstage, prop-men sciu'tled about
trimming trees, adjusting shakoy
doors, erecting castles, and sweeping
carpets. Electricians pulled switches,
replaced burnt-out bulbs, refitted
colored lenses, and coiled wire. Seated
in Sherwood Forest two performers
exchanged hints on each others' lines.
Over in a corner, a "tinker" hummed
a bit of the score, reassuring himself
that   he   knew   the   piece   as   well   as
hands, two extras indulged in tlie
traditionally favorite game of theatre
people, gin rummy. Gathering in the
wings, talking nervously and excitedly, be-decked and be-daubed cast-
members awaited the time when the
stage manager would signal 'first
act, on stage!' Periodically an orange-
visaged thespian plowed through the
crowd into the make-up room screaming that he had black eyes or that
his ears had been forgotten,
Robin Hood made a cute picture
in his long, vivid yellow stockings
and underwear shorts as he rummaged through a stack of costumes
searching for his puffy "Sunday best"
bloomers. Sir Guy of Gisborne patted
the curls of his lovely sand-blonde
wig, hitched up his three-and-a-half
foot sword and announced that he
was ready to trip over it any time
the script called for that, bit of action.

Married Grants Boosted to $90;
Allowances for Children Also Up
Increased gratuities for Canadian student-veterans which
were announced in the House of Commons Monday will bring
more than $15,000 a month in additional payments to UBC
The increases announced by Prime Minister King provide
substantial raises for all married student-veterans studying
under Department of Veterans' Affairs allowances.

by a group of air-minded students reach maturity.
James Harty, 1500-hour DFC
bomber-pilot veteran, applied
to Student Council Monday
night for permission to form a
non - profit university flying
club, which would operate at
first from Sea Island.
He hinted afterwards to a Daily
Ubyssey reporter that success of the
proposed club may launch an appeal
to the Provincial Government for a
university airpark on endowment
lands at Forty-first Avenue and
Marine Drive,
The 200-acre site, now covered with
bush,   was   originally  earmarked   for
air use, but was tentatively re-zoned
as park land.
If students, alumni and faculty
show sufficient interest in flying, authorities may be persuaded to set
aside the area for construction of a
grass-strip landing field, Harty suggested.
At UBC about 1500 married student-
veterans will benefit from the increased payments.
At the present time, more than
$400,000 a month is distributed to th
university's 4500 ex-service students.
The Prime Minister's announcement
of new allowances was included in
a bill to amend the Pension's Act.
Other new benefits for ex-servicemen
are also to be presented in the House,
The president of UBC's Canadian
Legion, Perry Millar, said in a statement issued Monday that "our success
is in no small degree due to the
foundations laid a year ago by Grant
Livingstone and Ray Dewar in their
appearances before the House veterans'
D.A.S. Lanskail, vice-president of
the campus Legion told the Daily
Ubyssey: "After two and one-half
years of effort, the University branch
of the legion is very gratified at the
substantial increase in allowances for
the class of student veterans who need
it most—the married ones with families.

UBC Debaters
Decide 'Cut Off
Aid to China7
Overwhelming support of the
resolution "that American aid
should be withdrawn from the
Chinese Nationalist government" yesterday gave a victory
to a pair of University of California debators at the Parliamentary Forum.
In upholding the affirmative side
of the motion, the first. American
speaker, Ralph Phillips, branded the
present government of China as a
classic example of "modern feudalism."
The Kuo Ming Tang as it stands
today is supporting a group which is
victimizing the people of China, he
said. The withdrawal of American
aid would foster the development of
liberal elements within the Chiang
Leading off for the negative, Barney
Russ declared that the only possible
alternative to support of the present
government was complete communist
domination of China.
Second American speaker, Bob
Brorby, stated that the Foreign policy
of the United States calls for peace
and security for every nation of the
Roger Pedersen, final speaker for
the negative, declared that in a country as large as China the government
had to continually strive for power
if the people were to be united.
After rebuttals on both sides, the
question was put to the house with
about 90 percent of the members
voting for the affirmative.

and apparently no one knows
the meaning of the word better
than two female university
seniors who advertised in a
Vancouver daily last week for
a couple of air force men to
take them out.
Reason? "They were tired of
university men."
Their ad in the "agony" columns
read: 'Two university senior girls

ihe ages of 23 and 28 years. Must be
5 ft. 10 or more, Picture if possible,

Mixed feeling pervades the campus
as to what should be done regarding
the advertisement.
I caught the founders of the Commerce Date Bureau sobbing uncontrolled on each others shoulders and
I judged that they considered their
experiment a flop.
Pre-Dcnt  student   Al  Marshall   was
also   unconcerned.   "My   mother,"   he
said,  "is at  this  moment  pressing  u;>

Female opinion was a little more
startling. Most girls interviewed
thought that the advertisers weren't
tired of university men but. just
couldn't find any.

The halls of Canadian Legion branch 72
will ring with glad rejoicing tonight.
The announcement from Ottawa of the
increase in DVA grants for married students
comes as a cimax in a project extending over
a period of the past two and one half years,
that has been carried forward largely through
the efforts of the UBC branch.
The local branch of the Legion, under
such presidents as Tony Greer, Grant Livingstone, and currently Perry Millar, has set the
pace across the Dominion in the agitation for
the increaed scale.
That the cause was righteous there can
be no doubt. Married students have had increasing difficulty, in the face of zooming
costs ,to support their families on the meager
$100 and less that they have been receiving
each month.
Famiiles with small children were in an
extremely critical condition because the wives
are unable to work. The increases will average something like 20 dollars per month
bringing the monthly income of the average
family to approximately $120
This figure supplemented by the summer
earnings of the married student, is certainly
far short of a grand sum, but is none the
less a marked improvement over the near
starvation rations of the past two years.
Tonight, more than 1500 married students and their families at UBC and thousands
all over the country will think of branch 72
as they sit down to a little brighter dinner
table in their apartments, barracks, quonset
huts, and trailers, at universities from here
to UNB.

"Oh, it's not too bad if you're willing to sacrifice a ittle."
As he spoke, his thin, purple lips
tightened, and his yellow cheeks
grew taut.
"What gave you the idea to starve
yourself this way?" I asked.
"Well, I thought of it myself, actually, but it was a great man who
gave me the courage to try it."
"Oh, goodness no. My member of
parliament, Lt.-Col. C. C. Merritt."
"How odd," I said. "He looks well
fed enough himself."
"Yes," the pale little man said slowly, "I suppose he does. But it probably just hasn't started to show yet."
"What's the object to the whole
thing?" I asked, helping myself to a
forkful of apple pie. I noticed my
little friend's eyes following the action as my fork moved from my plate
to my mouth and back again.

"Remarkably well. Much easier

"You mean you simpy don't buy
anything at all?"
"Oh yes, we buy the odd thing here
and there—but only if the price is the
same as it was in 1938."
"But that elminates just about
everything, doesn't it?"
"I'm afraid you've been misled by
labor propaganda. It costs no more
to get weighed today than it did ten
years ago."
His eyes were transfixed on that
final mouthful of apple a la mode 1
was engulfing.

said, "the university legion did support the national conference of student veterans in their request for a

Another great need is text books.

student. Always interested in sports,
Miss Castillou worked on the Ubyssey sports staff during her first two
years at University. She is very active in intramural sports and is a
member of the UBC girls' ski team.
For a real shake-up in the way the
Women's Athletic Directorate is run,
the candidate to keep an eye on is
Jo Castillou, a well-known figure in
campus sport circles.
Miss Castillou, who intends to go
into Physical Education in the near
future, rests for her platform on the
basis of taking the UBC intramural
system out of the hands of the Physical Education department and on
an increase in publicity for womens'
athletics in all publications.
Her plans to promote a more representative body to promote womens'
athletics are intended to bring team
spirit and sport recognition to the
fore. Her intitiative, ability, and experience in women's athletics make
her an ideal candidate for this all-
important seat on the UBC Student
Active as a member of the womens'
ski team, with interests in the Varsity Outdoor Club, swimming, tennis,
and all forms of intra-, as well as
extramural sport, Miss Castillou
seems the idea candidate for the
presidency of WAD.

As candidate for WAD I feel that
one of the greatest needs in promoting girls athletics at UBC is proper
publicity. As I wrote for the 'Ubyssey'
in my first and second years, I feel
I am qualified to bring this attention
to womens' sports.
My second point deals with adequate participation in girls' intra-
murals. It is my belief that better
turnouts can be obtained by representation from different clubs and
other organizations rather than
through the present system of faculty
Thirdly, if I am elected I will ask
for a more liberal budget to promote
inter-collegiate girls activities at UBC
It is my intention to establish a
system of competitive tryouts for
any inter-collegiate womens' teams
representing  this university.

After one year as president of the
WAA, Jackie Shearman is once again
running for the office which takes
care of the womens' athletics on the
campus. Miss Shearman is going into
her fourth year in Physical Education.
It is an honour to nominate Jackie
Shearman for the position of president
of Women's Athletic Association. She
has shown throughout her varsity
career that she is an able and untiring worker.
She is twice a member of the Big
Block Club and also a member of the
Honorary Sorority, the highest honour
a girl on the campus can receive.
Definitely this position calls for
experience and I believe Jackie
Shearman has proven she is the one
for the job,

If elected to the position of president of WAA, I will endeavor to
carry out the following program.
1. I will support intercollegiate sport
by encouraging competition in basketball, hockey, skiing, tennis, archery, etc.
2. I will strive for greater coordination among minor sports. Free instruction will be provided for all interested in order to give more girls
the opportunity of benefitting from
their AMS fees and also to raise the
standard of women's sports on the

program which will include all activities. I will endeavor to strengthen
or alter the present intramural set-up

4. I will ensure better pubicity fot

Thundering Thunderbirds
Sweep Weekend Basketball
UBC's basketballing Thunderbirds have at last shaken off
their most persistent jinx, and returned triumphant from a
successful road trip. Friday night, the Blue and Gold quintet
downed Linfield College 65-53, and Saturday the rampaging
Birds trounced the Pacific University Badgers to the tune of
60-51.    ' *	
In the Friday night contest, the
Thunderbirds staged a torrid fourth-
quarter uprising which saw them pull
away from a dogged Linfield squad.
The game, which was played at McMinnville Oregon, was a neck-and-
neck tussle through the first three
stanzas, with the Wildcats matching
the Birds point for point. UBC
showed more staying power, however,
and outpointed the American squad
in the final minutes of the game.
Evidently the win at McMinnville
served as a tonic to the campus squad,
for Saturday night they continued
their merry way, winning a second
contest from the Pacific University
Badgers at Forest Grove* The Birds
were never in serious trouble, and
were on the top of the score for the
major part of the contest.
Pat McGeer, ace forward of the
Blue and Gold Hoopmen, led the
scoring spree, racking up 30 points
against the Wildcats and 16 against
the hapless Badgers.
The results of the weekend road
trip stre&h the Birds win streak to
five straight, and move them to within .073 percent of the second place

In accepting the nomination for
the Presidency of the MAD, I pledge
my full energies to the fulfillment
of the duties of that office. I will
endeavour to continue to carry on
the good work that has been done
by the present incumbent, keeping
the MAD in full student control. I
intend to co-operate fully and impartially with all sports, both Minor

the full program of Inter-Collegiate

the efforts of the new Joint Pep

the underdog Birds four goals.

matched in the second session by the

third period was scorelss with both

Wag Wagner, starry centre of the
second line led the attack in the
first period, netting two goals and
assisting on one other. The starting
line of Young, Andrew and Berry

canto but scored another in the second.
From the opening face-off, the Birds
controlled play, allowing the Indians
only four shots on Bill House, who
kicked them out. One shot in particular was particularly dangerous, with
the Bird net minder getting his toe
