• KANSAS CITY, November 23-
(UP) —Last May Mrs. E. M.
Skates mailed a box of cookies to
her son, Tech. Sgt. Robert Cray-
traft. It was delivered to him ln
France on D-Day plus two.
Recently the box was returned to
Mrs. Skates containing a German

thc AMS office all this week. Thc
juice i.s 10 cents per copy and the
money goe.s to the Students'

lru-ir directories soon as there is
a  limited  supply.
ISS Mixer
Draws 19
Couples
• NINETEEN couples attended
the International Students Service mixer in the: Brock Saturday
night.
A spokesman for the War Aid
Council, which was in cnarge of
the affair, says that because of the
crowded social calendar the committee feels that no better result
could be expected,
He points out that the fact that
t h e aforementioned nine teen
couples had the Brock to themselves is not due to lack of student interest in the International
Student Service.
The poor turnout was attributed
by the committee to the fact that
there were four other affairs
scheduled for the same evening.
18 YEAR OLDS
WANT VOTE
IN MANITOBA
• WINNIPEG, Nov. 22-(CUP) -
Student   M.P.'s   of   the   sixth
session of the Fort Garry House
(the University of Manitoba counterpart of UBC's Mock Parliament)
saw the passage of the Franchise
Extension Bill giving the vote to
eighteen year olds.
There had been an attempt to
"hog-tie" the bill by a member
of the government, who proposed
that an amendment be added, to
the effect that only could 18 year
olds vote in provinces where there
was compulsory education up to
the age of eighteen, i.e., in no
provinces, but when he found not
only the majority of the House
was against him, but also the majority of his own government, including the P.M., he withdrew.
The government's new minister
of war proposed an amendment as
follows:
1. Only those of the ages eighteen to twenty-one may vote who
reside in a province where there is
compulsory education to the age
of eighteen.
2. Only those ot ages eighteen
to twenty-one may vote who reside in provinces where the vote
of Canadian citizens has not been
restricted. (The vote of Canadian
citizens of Japanese origin in B.C.*
Notice was given of a government bill concerning blocks of
Canadian Railroad stocks held in
Britain, which have been offered
a-, & partial payment of a Canadian
loan to Britain.
LIGHT WAVES AFFECT
ANIMAL FUR COLORING
Special To The Ubyssey
• SCHENECTADY,   November   18—Contrary   to   popular   belief,   the
weasel and some other fur-bearing animals do not get their coat colors
of summer brown and winter white because of seasonal temperature
changes. This biological process is actually caused by the length of
daylight to which the animals are exposed, With this knowledge, biologists
and animal breeders can make an animal produce a summer or winter
coat color at any time of the year, Dr. L. B. Clark of Schenectady,
member of the biology department at Union College, declared in a
General Electric Science Forum address here.
"Investigators at the Federal game farm at Saratoga have shown
that they can.hasten the primhyf of silver fox fur by manipulating light
in the pens," he said.
Dr. Clark mentioned that light also has an effect on the reproduction
of animals and birds.
Faculty Discusses
Problems Of Veterans
• TORONTO,  November   23—(CUP)—Members   of  the
faculty of the University of Toronto met with representatives of the ex-servicemen on the campus to discuss problems of the veterans last week.
  The first problem encoutered by
AJELLO WRITES
SHOW FOR UBC
RUGGER TEAM
• "THIS TIME Ajello is keeping
his big mouth shut," said one
of Eric's best friends.
He explained thai Eric has always had trouble keeping his plans
for pep meets secret since almost
anyone could take him down to the
Caf and ply him with cokes to
make him talk.
Gigantic plans, veiled In secrecy
and whispered about ouly behind
cupped hands and locked doors
are being made by (he Radio Society in preparation for a gala
"Surprise Pep Meet" to be held
tomorrow at noon.
The meet will be held to ship
up some student spirit for the
English Rugger game on Saturday
when'the Varsity Thunderbirds engage the Crimson Tide of Victoria
in a death-to-the-loser battle in the
Stadium,
It took but a little pLiance wHh
coke and a little wheedling by a
Ubyssey reporter to make Eric
Ajello open his big mouth in spite
of his most serious vows.
He opened his big mouth and
said, "This pep meet will have
everything."
He declined to say anything
further about what would go into
the production of the meet, but
just then another coke loosened
his tongue.
He let the following things slip:
1. Thc cast will be extremely
compact.
2. Anyone with a weak heart
Is asked not to come.
3. There will be trained nurses
In attendance.
4. There will be two bands.
5. Anyone under the age of ten
years or who is wearing short pants
will positively not be admitted.
C.   Blood will flow freely.
7.   No women will be admitted
without escorts.
CCF GAINS
MAJORITY IN
MANITOBA U
• WINNIPEG, Nov. 22-(CUPi
—Again this year the CCF will
be the majority party in the University of Manitoba's Parliamentary Forum. The Independents
polled a record vote of 307, almost
100 less than the victorious CCF,
and the Liberals 256. Farther behind were the Progressive Conservatives with 10» and Social Credit with 50.
According to Manitoba's Debating Directorate head. Fred Barry,
the tenor of the voting indicates
that a remarkable Parliamentary
Forum  will  be held.
the ex-serviceman is'that of convincing the board governing educational grants that the course, he
wishes to enter will establish him
financially in civilian life.
Men desiring to enter Arts courses have faced considerable difficulties. The reason given by the
Vocational Guidance Board is thac
the courses are impractical and
may not lead to sound financial
post-war re-establishment.
Members of the faculty agreed
that there was no restriction expressed in the Order-ln-Council
governing financial help as to the
course the ex-servicemen could
choose. Plans are under way to
have a definite statement made
by the government concerning a-
vailable courses.
NO GUIDANCE
Lack of integrated vocational
guidance in the University has
been noticed by several of the returned men, and it is felt that
some sort of an advisory board
should be set up.
The establishment of a Veterans' Association on the campus
was not favored by the veterans
of the faculty. Excerpts were read
from U.S. inter-university bulletins which indicated that on several American campi such organ
izations are  discouraged.
The meeting felt that integration of the veterans into the student body and into the various
campus organizations was more
desirable than having a seperate
veteran body. Both the university and the students will benefit
by this, for the veterans will bring
a mature viewpoint into campus
organizations, and will become adjusted more quickly to civilian
life.

Melrose Forsees
Need For UBC
Forestry Lab
•   THE PRESENT time is the most important time for the
science of forestry, said Mr. George Melrose, Assistant
Chief Forester for B.C. in an address in the Auditorium
Wednesday noon.
Science
Give Blood
Tuesday
• THE RED Cross Blood Donor
Clinic will rock and blood will
flow freely as 58 engineers, three
artsmen and one' artswoman invade it en masse next Tuesday at
5:30 p.m.
Organized by George Bramhall,
fourth ycar chemical engineer and
eight-time donor, this mass donation was originally planned as a
practical demonstration of faculty
spirit. "The project will settle for
all time the question of science-
men's blood," said Bramhall.
Any engineers who have not
been canvassed and who wish to
go to the clinic are asked to contact Bramhall as soon as possible.
GET OFF PARADE
Members of the COTC who attend the clinic with this group
will be granted leave from their
two hour parade next week. This
leave must be applied for by filling out the usual form in the orderly room and attaching the acknowledgement slip from the clinic. The UNTD is unable to grant
leave to its members.
Following the lead of the sciencemen, the UAS has organized
a group of 75 to visit the cllninc
on Wednesday, November 29. Airmen who attend will be granted
leave from the parade that day.
Bramhall reccommends that on
the day of the appointment donors
should eat a hearty breakfast. But
for eight hours previous to the
donation they must eat no fats,
as these spoil the plasma.
A list of unsuitable foods for
the eight hour period includes
butter, cream, whole milk, chocolate, cocoa, ice cream, doughnuts,
pie, cake, meat, eggs, soups, gravies, cheese, and salad dressing.
THREE MONTH PERIOD
To help the donors out with their
diet problems Frank Underhill
will feature special blood donors'
lunch and supper on the days of
the mass visits. Among the foods
that may be eaten freely are toast,
boiled fish (except salmon), shell
fish, fruit, vegetables, jams, jellies,
syrup, honey, sugar, tea and coffee (without cream), Oxo, Bovril,
pop, and fruit juices.
"We will attend the Clinic again
in three months," said Bramhall.
"I hope that we can get a larger
group at that time. Maybe wo
could even organize the artsmen
to go down en masse."
Garbovitzky Talks
Today On Concert
• FINAL SYMPHONY Preview
in the series planned for the
first term will be held in the
Men's Smoking Room of the Brock
today at noon.
The lecturer will be Gregori
Garbovitzky, well known Vancouver conductor.
Mr. Garbovitzky will discuss the
Concerto in G Minor of Mozart
and the Sibelius Symphony No. I.
"We have developed our forests,"
ho said, "and know where we
stand. We have found out that our
forests are not unlimited but we
have also found out that we should
take steps to perpetuate them."
ONE-THIRD PRODUCTIVE
Mr. Melrose pointed out that of
B.C.'s total area of 234 million
acres only one-third is productive.
Of this third the forests cover 95%,
and the other 5% is usable for agriculture.
Forests of B'.C. are more important than agriculture, producing 40c
in every dollar earned in the province, he said.
INCOME SOURCE
"One of the greatest sources of
income from our forests comes
from the tourist trade. Without the
forests, the animals for hunting,
and the rivers for Ashing, many of
the tens of thousands of tourists
which come to B.C. would cease
bringing their money."
Forests are important in protecting the watersheds, he maintained,
and said that if there were no
forests the great productivity of
the Okanagan would soon stop.
"The Job of the foresters who are
training at university is very important," he said, "and one of the
main parts of this job Is research
work In chemical forestry,"
He added that everything from
explosives to clothing can be made
from wood, and that Canada's research laboratories are fast developing this line of forestry.
NEED REFORESTATION
"Foresters must also study reforestation," he continued, "they
must learn how the forests can bt
perpetuated even while they are
being cut."
To further the study of reforest-
ation a Royal Forestry Commission
has been set up under the direction
of Mr. Justice Sloane.
"This Is the most significant thing
done so far," Mr. Melrose said,
"And after the war the returning
men should provide enough manpower to carry through any projects thought necessary."
To continue getting the revenue
from the forests Melrose felt it
was necessary for more men to
study forestry in our universities.
After Mr. Melrose's lecture a film
was shown covering many phases
of reforestation.
UBC TO HOLD
NAVY LEAGUE
DRIVE SOON
• NAVY WEEK will soon be ov-
er—but not on the campus of
UBC. There is to be a separate
Navy League Drive here in the
near future and all students ar-j
asked to give it the fullest support.
In previous years, the public
schools have sponsored Navy
League Drives of their own and
were very successful.
Envelopes will be distributed
about the campus for the purpose
of collecting money for this drive
by  some  ingenious  method.
Money will be used for the purchase of "ditty bags" for the boys
in the Navy and Merchant Navy.
These bags are distributed to the
various boys at Christmas time.
Today On The World's Battlefronts
THE  PACIFIC   FRONT
• ALLIED Headquarters, Leyte,
Philippines, November 2 3 —
(BUPi—General Douglas MacArthur announced that American
flighter planes and motor torpedo
boats had sunk or damaged eight
small coastal vessels and 54 barges
off Leyte.
Many of them were carrying
troops and supplies to the enemy
on the island.
Meanwhile, there was a sudden
shake-up in the Japanese military
Command,   one   involving   12   key
M'niy men.
Topping the changes reported by
Field Marshal Shunroku Hatn, the
Japanese commander-in-chief of
China since 1941, to the post of inspector general of military training.
THE EASTERN FRONT
By Henry Shapiro
• MOSCOW, November 23—(BUP)
—Four Russian armies were
fighting to annihilate 30 trapped
German divisions in Western Latvia.
The Germans said the Soviet
High Command had thrown major
tank reserves into the battle and
that fighting had increased in violence.
Far to the south, Berlin admitted
a series of Russian gains in Hungary, including the lass of thc
fr.med wine-producing town of
Tokay. The enemy also admitted
that the Red Army had penetrated
Hatvan, a strategic rail unction 20-
odd miles northeast of Budapest.
THE WESTERN FRONT
By Virgil Pinklcy
• SUPREME Allied Headquarters, Paris, November 23—(BUP)
- About 50,000 Germans have been
trapped in the Allies double envelopment of enemy defenses in
the Vosgos Mountains—representing about one-tenth of the enemy's
entire western front forces, it was
announced  today.
Meanwhile, Allied armies are
hammering out new gains all along
the western front. Mulhouse in
France and Eschweiler in Germany
have been captured, and Allied
i.rtnor turned back repeated strong
German tank attacks just west of
the Roer River beyond Aachen.
With tho capture of Eschweiler,
Nazi defenses west of Cologne were
bu'kliug. EDITORIAL PAGE
THE UBYSSEY
NOVEMBER 23,1944
For the Red Cross
The War Aid Council, after wandering
around in a haze for several months, has
finally decided that its function is to raise
money for the war effort. The haze was perhaps not the fault of the council, but it was
there nevertheless. We are glad to see, however, that the War Aid Council will now
begin to work for the war record' of this
university.
This university has only a few major
drives for the Red Cross every year. These
raise about $5,000, which is a very good
figure we must admit, but nothing like the
grand total that an organized group of 2900
students could raise,
Endowed with a general will to raise
more and more money for Canada's war
effort, this student body could outdo any
other charity group in the country. We have
already demonstrated many times our initiative for campaigns in which we believe.
And the Red Cross is an organization
which we should support with all the energy
we can muster.   We must give, give and.
Dr. Gallop at UBC
It's only the newspapers that take public
opinion polls seriously these days. There
are good polls and bad polls. One is never
sure just when they are correct. The only
good thing we can find to say about polls
is that they are an indication of public
trends in thinking.
We published a poll on the Japanese
question last Tuesday. Sixty percent of 365
students indicated with a "yes" that they
were in favor of allowing Canadian-born
Japanese to return to the university after
the war. Forty percent answered in the
negative.
Readers can take this at its face value
and judge for themselves. Just remember
that there are 2500 students around here
who also have opinions, and that a "yes" or
"no" can carry reservations.
It is evident from the reaction to Tuesday's poll that the results are not as accurate
as they could be. The only accurate poll
that could be taken would be one which included all 2900 students.
We regret that the daily newspapers of
this city gave the wrong impressions in their
headlines and stories of the poll. For that
matter, our own headline was misleading.
There were two wrong impressions:
1. That the majority of the student body
was in favor of allowing the Japanese to return to University after the war. Only sixty
give until it hurts, and then congratulate
ourselves that this is the only sacrifice we
have to make for Canada. Perhaps to some
of our more sophisticated students this
sounds a bit "corny". Perhaps to the campus
penny-pinchers it sounds horrible.
But we'd like to talk to the ordinary
fellow who seriously considers his duties
and responsibilities. This is the person who
is not bothered by the insults and taunts of
others because he is going to university in
wartime. He knows why he is going and
firmly believes in his right to go. But he
also knows that there are other ways to
fight a war than firing a gun. He knows that
it is up to somebody to provide the gun and
other materials necessary for war. To this
end he devotes his energy.
Twenty-nine hundred of these "ordinary
fellows" could make a real contribution to
the Red Cross. .We must get behind our
War Aid Council and support it to the best
of our ability—not because of the favorable
publicity, but because we owe it to Canada.
percent of 365 voted "yes" to this, and we
did not say it was a "cross-section" of student opinion. 2. That the majority of the
student body was in favor of allowing the
Japanese to return to B.C. after the war.
No student voted "yes" to this because no
one was asked this question.
We asked if they were in favor of Japanese at UBC, providing that the government allowed them in BC in the first place.
At any rate, students must remember
that a poll of 365 students does not represent
the opinions of the whole student body. No
one can speak for the entire student body
except 2900 students.
The Ubyssey does not claim to represent
the majority opinions on this campus. We
attempt to present both sides of any question so that students may form their own
opinions on these controversial matters.
So the McGill Daily's "Time and Tide"
writer thinks Frank Sinatra is the "symbol
of a largely over-sexed nation." We've been
trying to reduce that guy down to something. The Daily bills him as the "outstanding product of the United States for the
calendar year of 1944". We suppose then
that all Canada needs now is a little sex.
Frank Sinatra for Prime Minister if he can
do for us what he did for the United States
during 1944.
Radio Society Ramblings
. . . by Don Stainsby
•   "VARSITY TIME is on the air . . . "
The announcer's voice broke the silence
and the members of the University Radio
Society went into their script.
I sat back and watched and listened and
my mind went back to the big leather-bound
Totems I had browsed through and the
names and events pertaining to the old
Radio Club I had found therein . .. Founded
by Dorwin Baird, it was reorganized in 1937
. .. the president that year was L. Gray and
the club was newly located in the Mechanical Building ... its call signal was VE5UR
and it used equipment borrowed from
CJOR.
TWO PROGRAMS
Then, in '39, the club reorganized again
under Osborne Durkin, and became the
University Radio Society. It had two programs that year . .. Rodney Poisson directed
"UBC Presents ..." on Sundays ... on
Fridays "News on the Campus" was under
Basil Robinson's wing.
In 1940 president Vic Freeman and the
URS produced news broadcasts, sportscasts,
musicals and dramas . . . among the latter
was "Damien the Leper".
FEATURE PERSONALITIES
Verna MacKenzie was program director
in 1941 . . . "Personality Parade" was featured, the show which traced the activities of
outstanding UBC grads and undergrads . . .
UBC's history was outlined from its humble
beginnings in Fairview to its present beautiful situation in Point Grey . . . the Society
began to study technique more carefully
than previously.
Radio station CKWX joined CJOR in
producing the society's shows in 1942 . . .
featured was the "ABC's bf UBC" program.
In 1943, led by Don MacMillan, it continued "Varsity Time" ... it cooperated with
the Mussoc and finally went so far as to put
on an hour show of the first act of "Pirates
of Penzance." ... it accented comedy, too,
that year.
A PUBLIC RELATION
This year the University Radio Society
has become, with the Publications Board,
the 'public relations centre of UBC President Eric Ajello and his staff have worked
out new ideas for URS programs. Featured
this year is "UBC and Canada", a program
which shows UBC's reaction to our country
and her policies. In one of its early broadcasts the society re-told the history of the
university's first thirty years.
With the ultimate aim of having a radio
station on the campus, the society is putting
a good deal of emphasis on the technical end
of its work. To further this end it has developed a technical branch.
NEED TECHNICIANS
Previously an Arts concern, the URS
is calling for Engineers for equipment maintenance. The persons that the society gets
in this line will help bring about the reality
of a radio station on the campus, for once a
nucleus of trained technicians is formed it
will be possible to produce their own shows
with no outside help. As things stand now
it is necessary to go on the air from already
existing and fully equipped and trained
studios.
The society has this year reached an
agreement with the CBC whereby it puts
shows on the air through the Pacific network of the Regional CBC. Other shows
are produced through the facilities of CJOR,
and arrangements have been made with
CKMO for broadcasts.
GROWING UP
The University Radio Society provides
an excellent outlet for pent-up enthusiasm
for all branches of radio work, whether it
be script writing, announcing, equipment
maintenance, or directing, and it is indeed
a very lively and active group as may be witnessed from its growth from seven members
in 1942 to the large institution it is today.
SCM SPEAKER
TO DISCUSS
JAP PROBLEM
By BRUCE YORKE
• ACROSS Canada indications are that the so-called Japanese problem is once
more about to come to the
fore. With the forced re-distribution of Japanese
throughout Canada during
the critical period after
Pearl Harbour, the problem
was temporarily solved, but
now questions are arising,
particularly with regard to
Universities, as to what is
the best policy to follow with
regard to the Nipponese.
EQUAL TO WHITES
Recently 250 students at the U-
niversity of McGill at Montreal
signed a resolution to the effect
that Japanese students be regarded as equal to white students, and
that they should be granted full
•admission to their University.
Similarly on our own campus a
poll conducted of 365 students reported that 65 per cent were In
agreement with the McGill proposal.
In Manitoba, Alberta, and Saskatchewan there have been recent rumblings about discrimination against Japanese, particularly
with regard to admission to the
medical faculty.
The Student Christian Movement
throughout Canada has taken a
foremost part from the very beginning in the handling of the Japanese problem in order to secure
for them equitable treatment.
Here at the University of British
Columbia where the issue concerning Japanese students will be
most pointed, the Student Christian Movement is about to re-commence its activities with regard to
enlightenment on the general
problem.
JAPANESE AUTHORITY
for this purpose it has secured
the services of Dr. Norman Black,
unquestionably the foremost authority on the subject of race in
Canada, to address the student
body in the Auditorium on Friday, November 24, at 12:30. Dr.
Black is a retired school-teacher,
head of the Vancouver Co-operative Consultative Council, and a
man who has personally written
a great deal of literature on the
B. C, Japanese.
Dr. Black has chosen as his subject "The Japanese Canadian and
what Science has to say about
Race." For every student this is
a special attraction. We'have a
duty to perform with regard to
the Japanese in Canada. It is essential that we first of all know
the facts!

Hold Jam Session
•   VARSITY jazz-fiends will hold their first in a series of
"jam sessions' 'at noon today in the Brock Smoking Room.
Monday  the Jazz  Society .
Last
was incorporated by Council as
one of the minor LSE and the constitution drawn up by the leaders
of the society was ratified by the
Students' Council.
JIVE TODAY
Roy Lowther, president of the
society, announced that the music
lovers' first jam session will be
held today in the smoking room
in Brock Hall. The meeting will
begin at 12:30 noon and will continue for one hour only.
Members of the club have been
notified to bring all of their Mugg-
sy Spanier record gems to the
meeting.
Spanier has been picked as tho
subject of the first session because
lt has often been said that he is
"the living personification of
white jazz."
STUDY ARTISTS
In future the work of such artists in the field of jazz as Louis
Armstrong and Jimmie Noone will
be reviewed.
The aims of the recently organized Jazz society are as follows:
1. To further the enjoyment,
understanding and popularity of
jazz as a modern art form of music.
2. To eventually develop a gen
uine jazz band at UBC.
The   Society   does   not  require
members to own or buy records
or play an Instrument.
WINTER MEETINGS
During the winter the Jazz Society plans to have weekly concerts where records will be played
and discussions held, for members
only. In addition it intends to
hold larger meetings to which the
student body will be invited.
Other activities will include jam
session on the campus, regular
record sessions during the summer,
research and investigation in the
field of jazz, and the development
of a catalogue of records for the
use of the club. *
The society also plans to co-operate with similar bodies on other
campuses to further the movement.
The society hopes to serve as an
information centre regarding new
records and reprints of old
records.   #
The following officers were elected: president, Roy Lowther;
vice-president, Jack Cohen; secretary, Ross Stroud; librarian treasurer, Mona Quebec; publicity director, John Short.

Torrid Love Scenes Out
Says Hollywood Actor
By ERNEST FOSTER
United Press Staff Correspondent
•   HOLLYWOOD, November 23—(UP)Audiences don't go
for torrid love scenes any more, in the opinion of Jimmy
Cagney.
"Speed and activity are still the most important things
in a picture," said the actor.
Cagney does a bit of romancing       ___________________________
with Sylvia Sydney in his latest
film, "Blood on the Sun," but
there won't be any heavy clinching going on.
Since his early days of screen
romancing with Joan Blondell,
Cagney has avoided anything that
might be construed as nothing but
a love story. His romances have
been either of the rough and tumble variety that he enjoyed with
Bette Davis in "The Bride Came
C.O.D." or the tender love, indicated rather than actually played
on the screen, with Joan Leslie
in "Yankee Doodle Dandy."
As often as not he didn't get the
girl and wound up defunct or behind the bars. Once, in "Captain
of the Clouds," he married Brenda
Marshall just to keep Dennis Morgan from doing it, and walked out
on her on their wedding night.
"A quick kiss here and there is
all right," Cagney agreed. "But
long clinches, heaving chests and
sultry eyes arc out.
"The kids in the audience hoot,
holler and whistle at such scenes
these days. Anyway, I'm not th?
type."
In his new picture, Cagney «dd-
ed, he's much too busy to have
time for real romancing. Tho
script shows he engages in no less
than six fights, five of them including judo exhibitions, four
chases and sundry bits of gunplay.
It takes place in Japan.
Miss Sydney shares most of those
adventures with the star in helping him to smuggle from Japan

add to general coloring were purple and green lighting effects

Tiie green lighting had the effect
of   counteracting   the   red   of   the

Flying Crew Chases
Storms for Static
By SAM SMITH
United Press Staff Correspondent
• KANSAS CITY, MO., November 23-(UP)-Capt. Robert N. Buck,
TWA pilot with a strange wartime assignment of flying while the
birds walk, predicted today that commercial airlines will fly 365 days a
year within a few years after the end of the war.
"The bogey man of weather is losing his grip," the 30-year-old
veteran of 15 years of flying said. "The more you fly weather, the less
terror it holds. Soon no flights will be cancelled because of it."
For 11 months B*uck has piloted a Flying Fortress, equipped with
special gadgets to chronicle the weather and static details within storms.
He was assigned to the job when it was contracted to TWA by the
Army.  He works out of Wright Field, Dayton, Ohio.
ALASKA TO LABRADOR
Buck and his crew are men always on the go. In those 11 months
they have flown in Alaska, all over the 48 states and to Labrador and
Newfoundland. They have stuck the nose of their plane into thunderstorms
and hurricanes and through snow.
The armed forces needed details of the instance of static in storms
because it blotted out radio direction and communication equipment.
Buck went up to get the data.
He said he believed static would not bother the postwar airliners
as they operate those 365 days a year. k
Despite his years of flying, the Westfleld N. J., flier said he called
himself a "doggoned fool" when he took over the assignment last November. Now he talks of the "fine static" he found in a storm, unconsciously applying an adjective that most pilots would never use in such
a connection.
MIDWEST STORMS WORST
"The granddaddy of all storms, so far as turbulence is concerned,
is the Midwestern thunderstorm," he said. "That last big hurricane which
struck the East Coast was simple compared to a thunderstorm out here.
Florida thunderstorms look tough but they are mere "sissies" for turbulence."
He flew twice through the hurricane. He has cut through thunderstorms from a few hundred feet altitude to 36,000 feet. The pursuit of the
wandering storms has taken him 11,000 miles.
"The best static we have found was within 300 miles of Kansas
City," he said, "in a thunderstorm between Chicago and Kirksville, Mo."
When other planes hug the ground, Buck and his crew climb aboard
their big ship and chase the storm center.   They have baffled airport '
weathermen from Nome to Miami by rubbing their hands gleefully when
they get bad weather reports.
CAN GO UP ANY TIME
They haunt airport meteorologists for reports, making hour by
hour checks when a storm is building up. They carry credentials permitting them to take off at any and all times, just in case some official feels
like locking them up and calling the nut house.
Buck began flying when he was IS. In 1936, he raised the non-stop
world's record flight distance for lightweight planes when he flew from
Burbank, Cal., to Columbus, O., skidding in on the belly when h. dropped
the landing gear, at Burbank. When he was 16, he broke the junior
transcontinental speed record.

JEWELLERS McKECHNIE CUP GAME  HERE SATURDAY
Varsity Fifteen to Play
Victoria in Feature Tilt
• VARSITY'S almighty Thunderbirds engage the Crimson
Tide of Victoria in what promises to be a furious struggle
on Saturday in Varsity Stadium at 3:00. Britannia and
either Kits or Tech open the gala afternoon when they meet
in a Senior High School exhibition.
The   Thunderbirds   have   been       ~~~~~~~~~—m~~""""~~———
weakened to quite a large extent
by injuries to three players who
will definitely be missed. Keith
MacDonald, who provides most of
the spark to the scrum, has been
on the sidelines 'ever since his
knee injury in the homecoming
game with Vancouver Reps.
Scrum half Johnny Wheeler and
veteran of many a McKechnie Cup
battle is still bothered with a
sprained ankle is Bob Lawson,
outstanding freshman forward of
last year's Rep squad.
However, Coach Dan Doswell
has had a large turnout to the
'Birds' practices and has been thus
able to find suitable replacements
for the present.
Doswell has been putting the
players through stiff workouts for
the past month in readiness for
the coming contest. He has been
concentrating on the three line
and it is therefore expected that
Varsity will put a tricky, hard
driving line on the field.
Victoria has always been a great
team for kicking and this year's
aggregation is no exception. They
have a great place kicker in Brian
Bell-Irving, who booted two difficult penalty kicks for the Tide
in their Cup game with Vancouver two weeks ago. There is no
doubt that they will be very
tough to stop.
Like Victoria, Varsity also has a
revamped lineup. The Blue and
Gold's starting fifteen has not
been officially announced by Dan
Doswell as yet, but the probable
starters will line up as foltcws:
Jim Hughes, fullback; Tom McCusker, left wing; Don Ralston,
right wing; Len Mitten, centre
three-quarter; Jack McKercher,
second five-eighths; Maury Moyls,
five-eighths; Bobby Croll, receiving half; Bill Wallace, Joe Pegues.
Gerry Lockhart, Earl Butterworth,
Harry Kabush, Dave Morgan, Al
Jones, Cam Layard, forwards.
Any changes which Doswell sees
fit to make before the game will
be printed m Seturday's issuo of
the  Ubyssey.

Sprinters To Run
Today In Spokane
• THE THIRD ANNUAL Pacific
cross country meet is being run
off today down in Spokane. The
race starts at 12:30 noon.
If you are reading this paper
after your 11:30 lectures, you may
find it hard to realize that at this
very moment Ken MacPherson may
be headed toward his second race
triumph in a row.
UBC's team of seven runners left
Vancouver Tuesday for the meet.
They are expected back on Saturday. The seven runners are MacPherson, Bud McLeod, Cam Coady,
Harry Thompson, Bill Wood, Con
MacKenzie, and Gil Blair.
In the trial run here at UBC last
Friday, MacPherson set a new record for the four mile distance
run. His time was 21 minutes and
32 seconds, beating his 1943 time
by 25 seconds.
At last year's meet the UBC team
set a new record of 20 points for
low total.
Competing against the Varsity
team will be such runners as Ray
Sears of the San Diego Marine
Base and Johnny Fulton of the '
San Francisco Olympic Club. There
will also be representatives from
the colleges of Washington and
North Idaho. Almost 200 boys are
reported to be down at Spokane to
participate ln the run.
VARSITY  ELEVEN
DOWNS UBC 4-2
IN SOCCER TILT
• VARSITY'S two soccer clubs,
Varsity and UBC, staged one
of the best played games of the
season despite the heavy downpour and slippery condition of the
field. Varsity, coming from behind, defeated the not so potent
UBC eleven by a score of 4-2.
The scoring got under way
quickly when Don Yip, starry new
forward, slipped a shot past Bob
Wilson in the Blueshlrt's goal to
give Varsity the lead. UBC came
out fighting mad from the centre
off and fought furiously, scoring
two goals. The goal-getters were
Maury Isenor and Hec Rossetti,
outstanding freshmen. The first
half closed with UBC still pressing
for another marker.
After the breather the more experienced Varsity squad settled
down and hemmed the Blues in
their own territory.
The Redshirts scored tnree timcj
on shots by Les Moran, Russ Ba-
gan, and Fred Hole, to completely
subdue their opponents.
Dr. Tori.t, Hea>l of the Department of Classics acted in trio capacity of referee. The players
turned in a fast, '.lean gam>i despite the condii-t-n ct the playing

'BUGS DEFEAT
LANCERS SQUAD
• Varsity Thunderbugs ran a-
way from St. Andrew-Wesley
Lancers in the second half of their
Monday night hoopla encounter to
notch up a 39-23 victory. The students, who are tied for the lead
in the Y division of the loop, were
held to a 15-13 score at the half.
After the breather, however, the
Bugs settled down and won easily.
Doug Davidson lead the Varsity
scorers with 10 points. Henderson
and MacLeod picked up eight each
while Jack Hough tallied seven.
•"I For the Lancers, Dow was high
man with 10 points.
In the other games. Higbies took
the measure of McKenzie-Fraser
with a convincing 52-35 win. Heather Cubs beat Duke of Connaught
30-20 to retain their undefeated
stand at the head of the X divi-
s-ion of the League.
• VARSITY'S McKECHNIE HOPE—Here is Jack McKercher whose efforts have helped immensely in getting
the Varsity rugger squad to the McKechnie Cup battle which
is coming up in the stadium next Saturday. The Crimson Tide
from Victoria will be there in opposition and with Jack's help,
it is hoped that Varsity will bag the silverware this year.
THE UBYSSEY — NOVEMBER 23, 1944 — Page Four
LUKE MOYLS, Sports Editor
for men only
By PETE McGEER
• NEVER COACH a basketball team Algernon. It just
ain't worth it. Ask any coach, he'll tell you the same
thing. It isn't that you can't win the odd game, it's what
you have to go through to win them. In fact the fewer the
games you win the easier it is for you, if not for your
reputation.
The logic of that paradox is that a winning team can't
see what they are doing wrong, in fact they don't think they
are doing anything but what is right. A losing team on the
other hand will even go to the limit and try some of what the
coach tells them in an effort to win.
Of course trying to teach the boys something is one of
the least of the coach's problems. The main thing is to keep
everybody happy. Believe me brother, that's tough. Not
the least of this particular form of bedevilment of the coach
on the part, of the players is the belief of every player that
he should be a guard. Now the originator of the game developed it in the belief that only two out of every five men
should be guards. This makes it kind of hard on the coach.
Of course he can tell every player that he is a guard but will
he please try to fit in just this once as a centre and do his
best. It usually works for about five minutes, then everybody
reverts to their own belief and you have five men bringing
the ball up. This of course is very useful in confusing the
opposition, but unfortunately it isn't much good for scoring
baskets.
Eventually you may manage to solve this problem, probably by brute force and you send a starting team out for the
game.   After a few minutes faults become obvious to the
extent of being painful, and those of the spectators who
glance at the bench will notice the coach writhing in agony.
He calls over a reasonably intelligent sub and proceeds to
give him instructions.  Having duly impressed him with the
importance of all this the coach crosses his fingers and sends
the man in. However, as soon as he hits the floor the excitement apparently gets this moron and all he can do in the
time out is stutter. All the other players invariably interpret
this in just the opposite manner that it was intended and
commit their glaring errors with freshly inspired zeal.   At
this point the coach collapses and is carried screaming to
the dressing room.
Much more could be written on this subject but that's
enough to give you a rough idea and anyway I've got a midterm tomorrow. Just in case any coach complains to you and
tells you he's going to quit, don't believe him. He may try
but he never can, it's just too much to ask him to quit what he
loves. Occasionally one of the players will do something
right, and hope springs anew. He's a fool, but a happy one.

HOW'S YOUR ANXIETY?
• EVERYBODY is looking forward with great anxiety
these days. And this is not all on account of the Xmas
exams either. No. There are other things that people on this
campus look forward to with great anxiety besides the Xmas
exams..
For example, there are various characters connected with
English rugger who are running around like wet hens (the
weather doesn't help much, either) all on account of the first
McKechnie Cup contest which is slated for the Stadium on
Saturday afternoon.
Not only are these characters worrying about the arrangements and such which precede a gala affair like this,
but they are also furrowing their foreheads over Varsity's
chances against Victoria's Crimson tide.
AU Kinds Of People Worry
It seems that these Island punters are quite the smoothies,
and it so happens that the Blue and Gold mudders are feeling
rather under par these days what with several of their stars
sitting back on the sidelines with minor injuries.
But the rugger moguls aren't the only ones who are
sweating blood in these difficult days. There are also many
characters who are worrying themselves sick over UBC's
chances in this year's Pacific Northwest Cross Country championships.
With the Blue and Gold road racers running into stiffer
competition than ever this year, cross country mentors are
doubtful as to whether the UBC team can repeat last year's
performance. But all this worry will end very shortly, for
we expect to have the results wired to us this afternoon.
My Forehead's Furrowing, Too
However, there are still lots of other things to fret over.
(Today, I am a pessimist) t)n top of the list of headaches
for hoop bigwigs is the headline basketball tilt between University of British Columbia Thunderbirds and University of
Oregon Webfoots which, although still more than three weeks
away, must, like the Xmas exams, still be taken into account
at this early date.
Myself, I always have a million worries, but after the
last Ubyssey sports page of 1944 goes to bed a week tomorrow night, I will be found in some small candle-lit corner
concentrating on the biggest worry of any Varsity student.
Bring me another ice-pack, ma.
