Proponents of the abrevlated
lengths point out that In Eastern
Canadian Colleges and American universities whore cheerleaders are the
toast of the eampus their costumes
arc much briefer.
Shortened skirls for the girls have
been accepted at these schools for
many years without a murmur of
j disapproval   but  here at   I'BC   the
lengths have been continually  held
I down.
Because of this such names as "old
fashioned,"   "backward"  and "mid
Victorian" are continually being applied to our campus.
The girls themselves claim that
curtailed costumes give them greater freedom of action for their strenuous work and feel that they would
add Interest to their activities.

During the last five months one of our most trusted re-

end to end, seeking the answer to that very pertinent question.
He scoured the darkest dives, the dankest sewers and cesspools of vice; in a moment of ill-considered frenzy he went

Letter To The Editor
What's wrong with you? Why don't you
get out and support your teams whether yo.u
Win or lose? There seems to be a general
apathy at the University and-although a
handful of students have tried to do something about it, they have been unsuccessful
because they could not get enough support.
Why is it the other universities have that
keen interest in their campus activities?
Queen's, McGill, Toronto, even Alberta arid
Saskatchewan put you all to shame. You
should Be proud of your University.
University is not all work and most of
you. know it, Get but and support your
teams. Better still, enter into competition
for your faculty or university team. Show
the other universities that you have just as
much of that so-called spirit as they have.
Once a group of enthusiastic people get
a good dose of that spirit it can spread like
wild-fire. There are a grouj) of these people
on your very own cainpus. They supported
Thunral to the very last, they haven't given
up hope yet. They are workers ahd they are
proud of their University.
Enthusiasm lor lnter-fatulty competition
is sadly lacking especially hi women's sports.
This Is a good opportunity to meet other
people instead of your own tight little circle
of friends who you went all through high
school with. Why should Physical Ed be
victorious time and time again? Get your
back up ahd show a little fight.
The reason we don't hear more about
minor sports is because they have not got
enough support. They are struggling for existence — give them half a chance and they
will fill your trophy case. You have to participate as well as be a spectator, both jobs
require an over dose of spirit.
In This Corner       by jim benham
Everybody worked for Willie Stark; Adam Stanton, the idealistic doctor, Jack Burden, hatchetman, who idealized Willie, Sadie,
who loved'Willie and saw him spurn her
for another woman, even Ann Stanton, who
betrayed her uncle to Willie for his favors.
They all worked for Willie — at whatever the
current wages of sin were,
Hollywood has bought Robert Penn Warren's "All the King's Men", a Pulitzer Prize-
winning novel to the screen and have managed
to capture all of the atmosphere of back
room political campaigning, stumping in the
back country, torch light parades and the
myriad other eccentricities of American politics.
Broderick Crawford, as Willie Stark begins as an honest man with courage — a rare
thing in Konoma County where he starts his
political career, Duped by politicians into
runnng for governor so he can split the vote
and insure the election of an another candidate, Willie turns into a table-pounding,
peoples-rights politician. Defeated in his first
try he comes back wth a vengeance at the
next election and is swept into office.
Willie keeps his campaign promises, lie
builds roads, bridges, plans free medical attention, provides free text books for school
children. But behind the scenes Willie keeps a
gun-toting body guard, and a hatchtman to
dig up information about troublesome opponents for use whenever needed.
When Willie threatens to expose Attorney-
General Stanton over some small bribe years
before, Stanton commits suicide. The attorney-
general's nephew, fed up with Willie's reg
ime, assassinates him the night he browbeats
his legislature into abandoning impeachment
charges against him.
Hero of Warren's novel is obviously
Huey Long, late corrupt governor of Louisiana. In the novel author Warren believes the
Long, or Willie Stark as the case may be,
was an honest man gone wrong.
The same holds trUe for the picture. Willie
does not think he is corrupt. "There is merely
a rationalization on his part — a rationalization that concludes that any method is right
as long as the end is achieved. To achieve
his end Willie controls everything in the
state from political appointments to political
Perhaps the most graphic portrayal in
tbe picture is that of Willie himself. Broderick Crawford twists his face and grimaces
like any power politician.
As his hatchetman Jack Burden is convinced that Willie is good until he sees the
awful moral wreckage that Willie makes of
his associates, « ,
Mercedes McCambridge, as Stark's secretary seems intent on stealing every scene
she has a line in, and manages to do it when

academy awards. It will take a pretty powerful actor to overshadow the performance of

Dear Editor:
My first year on the cainpus is
now drawing to a close. As I look
back over this time, 1 am able, to
recall many happy moments. But
I feel that it ls my duty, for the
benefit of the incoming Frosh class
next year, to give a report con
corning my observations of some
of the types that we would like
to kill.
There is thc character, which 1
am sure is familiar to all of us,
who rushes Into the library promptly at 8:30 in the morning| He plunks
his books down and speedily rushes out for coffee and the odd lecture. He returns at 11:30 to get his
lunch, disappears for half an hour,
and then returns to read thc tlBC.
At 1:30 he leaves for the Brook and
bridge. At 5, he returns to collect
his books and dashes home.
I sincerely wish that anyone who
falls into this category would stop
lo consider the other students
go Into the crowded library to get
Some work done and are frustrated
in their purpose because of tho
laok ot seats.
And while we're on the subject

to express my beef against the

Game And Save Money
I thumbed through my empty wallet,
ifted the receiver and called a number.
"Hello," I said, "do you remember hie."
"Yes-you beaat," she said sweetly. "I
tlso remember that you owe me eight bucks
rom last weekend."
"I am sorry about that," I said, "but I'm

"How's that," she said.
"We can spend an afternoon at the GAME
n Saturday and it Will only cost me a
lloliar to get us in," I said.
"That's a fine plan," she said, "and I
an even stay out at the Library from 12:30
Bo 2:00 and study and we will save cost of
transportation. I will meet you in front of
Hie Library at 1:41"
We seated ourselves in the student sec-
ion and watched bur team come on the field
midst much yelling and cheering.
My girl asked, "Is that our team?"
Shaking my head, I asked, "have you
ver been to a Varsity game before?"
To my surprise she said, "Yes", and she
ontinued, "but 1 have never heard such
ipirit before at a game and I thought that
California might have brought a few sup-
orters along." '
I told her what I thought was the reason for it. "There is a new group on the cam-
ius who are attempting to promote campus

udent, you—or me. If each one of us gave

"Who are those worn-out grey maidens

she asked.
Of course she was referring to our cheerleaders so I enlightened her. "Those are

She asked me, "Is this what you mean."
She picked up a yell sheet and joined in With
the cheerleaders. I followed suit.
Two hours later the whistle went and
there was a mad scramble for the gates. The
GAME was over. What to do now? Broke and
one Saturday night to fill. Wait!
That man who spoke over the mike during the game, he said there was a FREE
DANCE tonight. I turned to my girl and
hoarsely said, "Let's go to' the Library and
get an hours studying in before it closes and
and then we can go down to the Brock and
have a game of bridge before the dance
That hot-dog we had at half time should

heartedly and we were on our way. (Wiah
I was!!)
Best dance I was ever at, We were so
hoarse we couldn't speak to each other and
maybe if some of you tried the same routine
you would have a good time too! It's really
amazing how easy it is to say good-night

I Jumped back out through the
door again, real quick, as a runaway
push-cart thundered past me, missing me by Inches. "Should have
