Griffin, who is associate edi-i

Griffcn said the People's Party
has the "overwhelming support"
of the native population."

BEG Representation
Nearer With Victory
The Undergraduate Societies committee has asked for
an investigation of the shortage of towels in the Memorial
When students turn in their dirty towels to get clean
ones, they are quite often told there are none, said Brian
Daniels, Teacher Training representative, as he moved that
an investigation be held.
"We pay the fees for them, we ought to get them,"
Daniels said.
Doug Cole, Physical Education representative, endorsed
the motion saying, "We've brought the situation up before
our factulty members, but this way we may get something
definite done.

Delta  Sigma  Chi
Extends Invitation
Two women from each undergraduate society have been invited lo initiation ceremonies
of the honorary sorority scheduled tor Thursday, Nov. 2(>, at
.'! p.in. in Mildred Brock Room.
Regional conference of International Relations Clubs, held
at Seattle Pacific College over
thc weekend.
UBC delegates Lois Milling-
ton and Vaughn Thorsteinson
represented this campus as delegates of the UN club due to the
death of the UBC International
Relations Club some years ago.
A wide range of international
problems including human rights
in Europe, India, Africa and
America, and political situations
in British Guiana, French Indo-
China, Korea and Trieste were
discussed over the conference
Italian Consul for western United States, Baron Di San Sev-
irino, told delegates that "backing out on the Trieste problem
now will weaken the West's posi
tion   in  Italy.'
In an effort to halt damage
and disturbances -which have resulted in Belllngham in past
councillors have proposed a
Joint committee to prepare suitable entertainment for students
attending the UBC-Western
Washington football game.
One suggested plan is that
Western Washington students
prepare a dance to follow the
game when UBC is at Bellingham, and that the same be done
for Western students who play
in Vancouver.
A formal charge has been laid
by Council against two UBC students who are alleged to have
left Bellingham without paying
for their Leopold Hotel room.
The matter now rests with the
| discipline committee which has
power to try and mete out punishment.
Student discipline in general
during invasion will likely come
before a joint meeting of faculty council and Student Council.
Only one UBC-Western Washington football game will be
played in 1954, that in Vancouver.

Chant Scoffs
At Gostick
Following a Ubyoscy editorial
branding him "a glory-seeking
quack," Ron Gostick, chairman
of the Canadian Anti-Communist League, accused "several professors at UBC of filling'the boys
full of Marxism" in a speech at
Duncan,  B.C., Saturday night.
Gostick stated that "he doubted if he ever had as many communists attend a single meeting
| as attended his address at UBC
j last Tuesday."
UBC acting president Dean S.
N. F. Chant branded the statement as "quite irresponsible and
not factual in any sense." Thc
Dean added that he did not know
of any staff members of communist inclinations and that "we
have never been troubled by any
group   of   communist  students." j UBC.

Fewer Calories. More Food Wanted
Students who eat at Fort Camp
with any degree of regularity
have perhaps often wondered
what they would do if the kitchen
rather unexpectedly served food
one day.
Reliable sources of information are prepared to swear that
they have actually seen bona
fide trucks of legitimate food
wholesalers unloading food at
the deliveries entrance to Fort
Camp kitchen.
But by what weird alcnemy
the cooks transform it into what
students get on their plates is
not understood.
Maybe we're being just a little
unfair, since it has been proven
that a stuc^nt once put on some
wejght while living at Fort, but
the times when reasonable fac-
similies«of Dr. Ballard's or Red
Top have appeared, are altogether,
too often considering the $82.80
to $86 a month students pay for
board and,room. >
In the way of pleasing variety,
Fort Camp cooks or dietitians
have little on the ball, it would
seem, even if the calorie count
is. astronomical. Man doth not
live on calories alone. (Nor do
women at the Dorms.)

Bible Scene
A series of colored portraits
of Bible characters form the
"In Our Image" exhibit now on
display in the Library.
Lining the left wall of the
corridor leading to the Reserve
Book Room, the character studies are painted from Old Testament descriptions, by painter
Rowe. They range fro "Creation," which shows the first
man as he appeared on the sixth
day to "Isiah."
One of Howe's own favorites is "Soloman," a picture
with tonal quality which portrays vividly the dream images
seen by Soloma Solomon while
he prayed.
Players Panned
The Varsity Players Club
deserves some good actors. The
Fall Plays this year were a
hodge-podge of good, bad, and
terrible acting.
Certainly the directors did
their usual fine job of getting
everything ready for the performance. But they were handicapped with a lot of poor
hams who weakened some of
the best parts of the plays.
What happened to the quality of the acting? If it was in-,
experience, then new actors in
the Players Club should hold
their stage debut till the stage
is ready for their mumbling,
disinterested style.
If it was too much experience, hah! The Green Room I
am sure holds a sympathetic
audience for these old roues.
Blase as they are, these few
should have the kindness to remove their oratorical presence
from the cast ot a play that
needs actors.
Declaiming further, I will
probably be guilty of oratorical
style myself. But it is not my
intention to joins the Players
As I say, they need good actors. As the situation appears
now, they got a lot of poor
actors this year.
It is that great intangible attraction to be in the limelight
that drau's them to the Green
Room every year. '•
I doubt very much that the j
Players Club wants members'
to join on thai basis. I am sure |
that most of the Players Club '
characters are actually characters; that they can bring something of thespia to the slage.

One of the hardest things to
face on getting up these cold,
grey mornings, say many Fort
Campers, is the leathery complexion of fried eggs, thoroughly
browned to a depth or % of an
inch, all around.
The poached eggs, on the other
hand, which have a frequency
rating of about one compared to
fried's five, are cinsistently delightful, that is if you like them
Then there are the hard boiled eggs. There should be more
hard boiled students to cat them.
The initial shock of breakfast
has generally worn off sufficiently to enable the hardy to return
for lunch. Quite often this comes
as a pleasant surprise, keeping
diners playing 20 Questions for
hours afterward in attempting to
identify the main course.
Pard on a wet blanket (soggy
bun), surmounted by great staring orange eyeball, rampant
gardant (poached egg), emblazoned rouge (ketchup* on a white
field (plate), sometimes chipped,
could well serve as Fort Camp's
coat of arms.
Often in lieu of dessert, grapes
are served, but the only part of
this dish that appeals is the skin.
Not since the days of New York
horse steak, back in 1951, has
there been anything to compare
with the perennial Salisbury or
Swiss steaks that often show up
for dinner. They come to the
wrong place; there's nothing for
them eat at Fort.
Dinner is largely the most edible of the three offerings, so we
won't belabor it any more. But
more substantial portions would
be appreciated.
Readers will note that faceti-
ousness has played a major role
in this account, but the circumstances warrant the attack as

In discussing his book, Garstin
explained that it is preliminary,
and to a large extent an explore*

He feels that "ideologies are
the most necessary of social mechanisms in the establishment of
adequate social control in society" and deplores the hysteria
that so often .develops when they
come under discussion.
A more objective and scientific
approach to the whole problem
of ideologies is, he maintains,
vital in an age of bitter ideological conflict.

UBC Thunderbirds 19 • Whltworth Pirates 42
SPOKANE— (Special) — UBC Thunderbirds were beaten
42-19 Saturday by the Whitworth Pirates but in defeat gained
a moral victory by becoming the first Evergreen Conference
Team to gain a touchdown against the Pirates on a rushing play.
The 'Birds also have established a record for themselves
by becoming the first UBC football team not to be shut out in
at least one game.
The Whitworth team took an
early short-lived lead rolMng to
a converted major after the
opening kickoff. After picking
up two consecutive first downs
the Pirate* left halfback Wayne
Buchert passed to end Bob Brad-
ner frpm UBC's 30 for six points.
The Blue and Gold Squad
scored their first major ln two
plays after receiving Whltworth's
kickoff. Fullback John Hudosn
took a handoff from Gerry Stewart and barreled through the
centre of the line for 64 yards
to ihe Pirate five yard stripe

tacklers strewn all over the
Ross Rayment crusned through
on the next play to become the
first man in the conference to
score a TD against the Pirates
on a rushing play. Minutes later
Stewart, playing a tremendous
game, intercepted a pass on his
own 18 and quarterbacked the
'Birds to' the defenders 18-yard
stripe. A pass to Hitchinson gave
the 'Birds the lead for the first
and last time in the game. Stewart
passed to Hutch once again for
tbe conversion.

Whitworth quickly regained
their composure after having two
quick TD's scored on them and
intercepted a pass on his own

Birds Down Eilers
Thunderbirds   fJ2—Eihm   57
J.V.'s   55—Cloverleaft   62
The home debut of UBC's
two major basketball teams
on Saturday night was fifty
per cent cheers and fifty per
cent tears as the Thunderbirds
dumped the powerful Eiler
rrew 62-57 in the feature game
but Dick Penn's J.V.'s dropped
the opener to Cloverleafs 62-
'Birds-had too much height
for the never-say-die Eiler crew
as the'students controlled both
offensive and defensive boards
throughout the game.
The main attraction Saturday night was not the heralded battle between centre man
Bob Pickell and Geoff Craig
but 6'5" 'Bird forward John
McLeod who played a fine two-
way game while pouring 26
points through thc hoop.
Bob Pickell, who missed enough close-in shots in the final
three minutes to win the game
by himself, led Eilers with 20
(joints and Reid Mitchell was
next with 12.
Gary Taylor played a standout game for the 'Birds and
notched nine points from his
guard position. Geoff Craig
lost out by seven points in his
dual with Bob Pickell as he
racked  up  13 points.
Dick Penn's J.V.'s lost their
game to 'Leafs in the first quarter when their poor defence allowed Weber's speedy trio of
Leo and Maury Mulhern and
Jack Henwood to break away
for five quick lay-ups to pull
away to a 14-5 first quarter
lead. J.V.'s battled them on
even terms for thc final three-
Little Don Hill played a tre-1
inendous offensive and defensive  game  for  Penn's  squad I
and led  the students with a
well-earned 15 points. Hill was
supported   by   hook  shooting!

If Ron Stuart's shooting hadl
been normal J.V.'s might have I

with 16 and 13 points respectively.
