• FIRST and second year students of the University of British
Columbia, with the exception of
ex-service personnel, will be required to take two periods of
physical education per week or a
satisfactory equivalent according
to an announcement by university
officials Saturday.
Half the requirements may be
satisfied by active participation in
sports, with seven out of a necessary 40 credits being given for each
Intra mural sport, and credits for
any extramural sport. Students
may take one hour a week of
golf, square of ball-room dancing,
or badminton, in place of one hour
of PT.
Students who do not obtain the
required credits will be reported
to the administration at the end ot
the year.
Physical education classes start
the week of October 1.
Since the Thanksgiving holiday falls on Saturday, October
6th, all students who signed up
for their Totem Class photos on
that date have had their appointments postponed until the
following Saturday, October 13.

Barrier Of Intolerance Divides BC
From Canada Claims Manitoban
• CHARGES that "the true spirit of democracy and world
co-operation is a little late in coming to British Columbia"
are laid in an editorial published in The Manitoban,
University of Manitoba's student newspaper, of Tuesday,
September 25.
The editorial, entitled "West
Coast Folly," begins: "A strange
tribe of people dwells on the far
side of the Rocky mountains.
Numbered among British Columbia's great are arch-conservanves,
'dangerous' radicals, distinguished
journalists, and eccentric ssntors.
Queer rellgons, novel inventons,
and new political parties all flourish there to the amusement and
bewilderment of the rest of Canada.
"Also in British Columbia can
be found one of the most fierce
end undying racial hatreds in tho
world.    Riding  on the  crest  of
Japan's  defeat, a  well-organized       .. ,, ,. ,

"So while we tell ourselves that
there must never be another great
depression, people In B.C. ask for
policies that helped bring ruin ln
the thirties. While we dream
about our 'One World,' isolationism lives on at the Pacific coast.
While we work for a life free from
the hate of race for race, tho west
coast's anti-Oriental campaign
shifts into high gear.
"The true spirit of democracy
and world co-operation is a little
late In coming to British Columbia, it seems. We nope tne province's fair-minded people will
soon give the heave-ho to the pro-
provinces every person of Japan

its climax."
Following   claims   that   B.C.'s
Chinese   are   merely enjoying a
"brief respite from this barrage of
racial    prejudice"    because
China's great part ln the
war, the editorial continues
"But the  war's over now;    it
won't be long before the 'patriots'
once   more   start   screaming for
measures against the Chinese."
According to The Manitoban'*
editorial, British Columbia's "Intolerance" marches side by side
with "isolationism."
"Man has conquered the Rocky
mountains," it says, "but he has
never pierced the barrier that exists in the minds of many British
Columbians. The mental barrier
forever splits B.C. and the Dominion into two separate enUtles.
"While experts continue to
chronicle the disastrous effects of
economic Isolationism on the prewar world, many of British Columbia's leading businessmen call
for just such a policy in their own
province. 'Let's make as much as
possible of what we need right
here in B.C.,' they say."
Claiming that British Columbia
has not yet learned that no part of
the world can solve Its employment and business problems all by
itself, the editorial concludes:

One of the nicest things about the University of British Columbia is that although it
is now one of the largest Canadian universities it has retained some of the more
"homey" traditions it developed when still
a small institution. Homecoming, "open
house" is soon to be revived, we hope, and
Club Week sponsored by the Literary and
Scientific Executive are three of these
traditions which give the university an "Our
Town" touch.
The purpose behind club week is sound.
As the president of the Literary and Scientific Executive has said, "Clubs provide relaxation, fun, and the feeling of belonging
to a group. They give a new circle of
friends, some with similar outlooks, others
with different outlooks."
Club week serves to publicise the totally
different ways and means of providing fun
and relaxation offered by all campus groups,
It also causes new students to realize that
meeting a circle of fellow students with
similar interests immediately is a natural
and easy fete to accomplish here.
The factj that an exceedingly small number
of University of British Columbia graduates
have gone through their four or five years
of studies without joining a club is a silent
tribute to the Literary and Scientific Executive, which has at present under its financial
and administrative wing 45 clubs which
present to the university a richly varied bill
of extra curricular fare.
Another Deadline
Just like time and tide, Totem deadlines
wait for no man, and then there are 5,000
university students who must all register to
have their pictures taken this year. Photc
schedules are quickly becoming the most
outstanding difficulty in publishing a yearbook.
Class photograph sections must all be
snapped early and the freshmen, who are
the largest single class group on the campus
must ALL sign their names on the Totem
class pictures posted in the quad right now.
If they fail to do so their picture won't appear
in the university annual this year.

Laurie Dyer
And since the Literary and Scientific
Executive is flourishing nicely the loss must
be that of the non-joiner, who will have
discovered by this time that an education
supplemented with a record of whole-hearted
participation in a campus group is of more
value than a diploma representing brain-
cell activity alone. They have had to wait
until graduation before learning how to work
with people and develop outside interest to
broaden out their daily routine.
Although a small number of professors
may not agree, campus life is valueless without club activity. Man is » social animal
and when an organization gives him friendships as well as establishing useful contacts
and experiences in fields of employment and
culture in which he is interested, he puts
his education to work as soon as he gets it.
What could be more natural than that a
medical student should join the Pre-med
club, a budding announcer joining the Radio
Society, or a future history teacher taking
an active part in the International Relations
Campus clubs as brisk in activity as those
at UBC are in themselves an almost complete"
denial of the oft-stated criticism that universities offer much ivory theory but little
actual bread-and-butter experience.
And so, the almost unnecessary advice to
eampus newcomers this week is this, "Join
a club which suits your interests, and if you
can't find one on the campus which does,
get busy and organize it."
Upperclassmen will also be requested by
the Totem staff to sign the appointment
sheets within the next six weeks. If there
are few signatures either the Totem will be
late this year and will cost the student body
more money, or there will be big blank
spaces in the class section.
The Totem staff will be working overtime
this term, the least of the work, which merely
involves a short walk to the quad to sign
appointment sheets, slightly longer journey
to the gymnasium where the pictures are
being taken, and an expenditure of $1.50,
is up to the student body.
#   StreSSeS    and    Strains     .... by Bruce Bewell
• OF ALL the minor rackets in existance
at the University of British Columbia,
the one roping in the highest percentage of
suckers is the standard method of getting
dates for little sisters for the Frosh
The reason for this high batting average
is fairly easy to figure out. In the first
place, the big sister usually picks as her
victim one of her closer friends, realizing
that the unfortunate young man will do
anything within reason to keep his friendship intact. Secondly, tiie little sister is
kept out of sight until the contract is signed.
Year after year the same scene occurs.
A smooth soph will cruise up to a table
hanger in Underbill's Underground Food
Emporium and open the conversation by
borrowing a match. After some inconsequential chatter during which the victim is
carefully drawn into line the glamour girl
casually inquires, "By the way, Handsome,
how would you like to go to the Frosh?"
Our caf hound by this time is so absorbed
in conversation that he immediately agrees
without thinking. At this point the soph
beckons to the little sister who has been
waiting on the other side of a convenient
pillar, performs the necessary introductions,
butts her cigarette, and then departs to
borrow another match and incidentally dispose of another one of her half dozen
Assuming that the big sister is not harbouring a secret grudge against our hero
the freshette will be not too bad looking,
being in possession of all standard equipment which includes one body, one head,
two arms, and two legs, but there is always
some catch in an otherwise agreeable set-up.
Either her landlady has imposed a twelve
o'clock curfew or she lives three blocks past
the end of the Hastings street extension.
When the big night arrives the young
gentleman meets the freshette at Tenth and
Sasamat and together they fight their way
into the bus.   In due course of events they
arrive at the university right on the dot of
nine p.m.
After congratulating each other on safely
completing a perilous trip they make their
way towards the armouries where they take
their place in the reception line which by
this time has made three circuits of the
building and is rapidly extending down the
West Mali.
Much later in the evening the lucky
couple approach the receiving dignitaries.
This is one place where a person who does
not like his name can get it changed so
quickly that it will make his head swim.
It is bad enough when the name is a common
one, but by the time a Featherstonhaugh or
Chomondeley gets to the end he has to be
introduced to himself.
After successfully negotiating all hazards
and arriving inside intact, our hero is quite
pleased to find a bevy of young beauties
around the floor. His hopes for an interesting evening of free-lance number collecting are dashed when his partner produces a
dance card neatly filled out with the exception of the first six dances which were
missed in the receiving line anyway.
When he steps out to dance he quickly
gets accustomed to the borax covered
asphalt, and would probably be able to
execute some really snappy jive steps if
only he did not keep getting tripped up by
the tractor tracks across the floor. Thus he
never does find out whether his partner can
dance or not.
At the end of the evening our friend takes
the girl home and somehow manages to miss
the last car for West Point Grey. As he
wends his weary way homeward he pauses
under a street light to console himself by
looking at the note he has made during the
evening of the name, address and phone
number of a beautiful little blonde he happened to meet.
And then as a sort of coup de grace it
dawns upon him.
The blonde lives four stations outside the
city limits on the Burnaby Lake line.

This group is affiliated throughout tht world with slmUar groups
under National Fellowship organ-
The feUowshlp movement, begun in Cambridge university in
1877, is composed of students who,
knowing Jesus Christ as a personal Savior and Lord, desire to witness for Him and to prove Christianity significant and vital.
The motto "To Know Christ—
To Make Him Known," summarizes the purpose and activities of
the fellowship. Personal faith in
Jesus Christ, provides release from
self, the source of abundant life
and assurance of eternal life. Examination of the Christian faith
reveals great scope for Intelligent
discusion and explanation in all
fields of knowledge.
We desire to make known tho
necessity of a personal decision
concerning Christ, based on the
study of His life, death and resurrection.
Our program consists of devo-
tionals, Bible studies, discussion
groups, socal events and inter-
varsity conferences. We sponsor
speakers of interest.
We welcome everyone, especially new students. Watch the VCF

chances along with everyone else
at obtaining eating accommodation

The author stated that no one
objected when groups of friends

S* the gospel...

San Francisco,
Sorry I didn't get that column off to you in time for tiie
first edish, but I've got better things to do in this wild town.
I'm having enough trouble getting stories off to the three
The little two-fisted player is running these American
kids into the tennis courts, and by the looks of things, he
may have better luck here titan he had in L.A.
St. Mary's football squad is playing at Kezar Stadium here
on Sunday, so I hope to get a look at our boy Ed Ryan.
Take it easy on the new reporters and hold onto them till I
get there.
They All Love Me In The Pub
Here I sit in peace and bliss, up to my ears in Ubyssey
sports copy. (Well, I can dream can't I) At least I managed
to plow through three editions, so I guess I'll retire if and
when you get back to these hallowed halls.
There's nothing but good news for you here, seeing as we
now have a flock of new sports scribes—17 by actual count—
and half of them are gals.
Mardee says she's glad you're not here to scare off all her
new reporters, and Morris Belkin told me to wire you to
tell you to stay in California at all costs.
But we need you back Luke, so don't listen to Mardee and
Morris. Think of poor little me slaving behind this sports
desk. Tear yourself away from those southern gals at your
earliest convenience.
It's Too Hot For Me Here
San Francisco,
Well, it's all over. And you know what that means for
me. It's back to books, basketball and blondes. I wonder
if we could arrange another couple of weeks holiday so I can
recuperate from this one.
The kid came through with flying colors this morning
when he blasted the California champ off the courts in
straight sets. The local BTO's made a big fuss over the kid,
crowning him the new Pacific Coast boys' champion and
tossing a few trophies his way.
So the trip turned out to be a great success in spite of all
my bungling. .I'll be glad to get back to Vancouver, though.
The heat here is getting me down.  No, I mean the weather.
If you're lucky, I'll be in on tonight's plane; if not, I'll
extend my holiday a couple of weeks, it takes that long to
get another reservation.
Gang way, freshmen. We'll go all out and raise that student
enrollment to 5001.

Gain New Cabin
• ALL THOSE who have a yen

undoubtedly be interested in one
particular club at UBC. Yes, winter Is on Its way again and with
winter comes thoughts of "the
mountain," with the odd bit of
skiing and the odd bit of sitting
The mountain activities are aU
co-ordinated by the Varsity Outdoor club. The club operates two
cabins on Grouse mountain, where
the members have a home away
from home on the week-ends.
Three climbing trips are held
during the winter session, two in
the fall and one in the spring.
Other trips are made in the summer by those still in town. A
trip to Garibaldi Park is now an
annual event taking place in September.
A club ski tournment is held in
the early part of February to determine the members of tha
Thunderbird ski team. The team
last Easter defeated a University
of Washington team on their home
grounds at Martin Pass in .he first
inter-collegiate meet since the war
began. Such a meet, plus one
with Oregon, will probably be repeated this year.
Accommodation at the cabins is
limited by the bulging walls
caused by previous crowded seasons, so that until cabin space is
increased, sleeping in the snow
can be expected.
The first general meeting takes
place In eighteen inches of fresh
powder snow in Arts 100 on Wednesday, October 3, at 12:30. Bring

Canadian Officers Training Corps
• Canada is one of the wealthiest and most highly
industrialized of the United Nations. As a contribution towards world peace, Canadians should not
only provide for their own defence, but also furnish
men .and equipment for the world Police Force. The
most effective and economical way of doing this is to
provide an adequate reserve of trained officers.
The COTC offers students an opportunity to qualify
for commissioned rank in the Army.
If an Air Force Squadron is not established on the
campus the COTC may, as it did during the war, offer
some special training in this branch of the service.
Any undergraduate who would like more information regarding the COTC should consult one of the
officers of the unit. The following members of the
