"Women have a deficient sense of humor."
In a recent lecture, psychology professor J. F. Morsh
. told a class that this was the main reason why men should
not play jokes on their girl friends if "they want to remain
that way."
"The woman with a sense of humor equal to that of a
man is a rare creature indeed," he added.
Professor Morsh did not state whether his observations
wore from personal experience or not.

Continuity7 Can Be Dangerous
If nothing else, the "probers" of student
finances are at least visionaries.
Their recommendations which are outlined
at length in The Daily Ubyssey today set up
jcin elaborate network of checks and balances
\fi safeguard the $15 which students pay each
year to the Alma Mater Society.
At a general meeting today, students will
have these recommendations before them
for decision.
The major chore will be the acceptance or
rejection of a "financial board" to be drawn
from the ranks of commerce students and to
sit as an all - powerful watchdog over the
student treasurer.
' The logic of the probers is clear. In their
desire to bring continuity to student government, they recommend that members of the
board be appointed from their second year
to sit for four-year terms, A loophole is left
for a student in his fourth year on the board
to seek election as treasurer.
While the advisability of continuity  in
student affairs is obvious, the advantages of
an elaborate "finance board" are harder to
It is quite plain that a student who serves
for three years on the board will be a lead
pipe cinch to be elected treasurer.
In other words, the treasurer of the Alma
Mater Society will, in fact, not be elected
by the students at large but will be virtually
assured of the job when he is elected by the
commerce department to the board in his
second year.
He will be assured of the job, that is, if
you can ever find a student willing to bore
himself to death by sitting for four years on
the prober's "finance board."
Whatever the decision of today's meeting,
however, students of UBC have benefitted
from the services of eight unthanked students,
plain ordinary guys, who accepted the challenge of finding out why the AMS was ailing,
and put weeks of late-hour candle burning
into finding out.
We're Still Waiting For The Gym
Students who spent long hours campaigning for the war memorial gymnasium will bo
disappointed to learn that plans for construction have now reached a virtual impasse.
Planners of the gym need another $150,-
000 before even the basic units of the building
can be started. They asked for the money last
summer from the provincial government, but
their blueprints have been gathering dust
ever since while the cabinet dilly-dallies
over an answer.
Every day the cabinet's decision is delayed
means British Columbia, will get less gymnasium for the money now on hand. As it is,
close to a million dollars will be needed to
provide the completed gymnasium that originally was to cost half that sum.
For a long time planners of the gymnasium
have been pointing out the more obvious
reasons for additional government support:
it is to be a provincial memorial and will
provide facilities for the university's department of physical education.
A contribution of $150,000 from provincial
coffers would be downright smart horse
trading. In return, the government would get
a $600,000 revenue-producing home for its
department of physical education as well as
an ultra-modern new building at the entrance
to the campus.
So far, students of UBC 4iave contributed
53 percent of the $432,000 now in the bank
and their campaign throughout the province
has raised another 29 percent. The provincial
government lias given six percent.
Someday soon students at the university
may grow tired of providing facilities for
UBC's department of physical education.
They've provided UBC with one gymnasium,
now ridicuously small for a university of
several thousand students, and they've built
a stadium. They await only a nod from the
cabinet to start'on another gym.

Dear Sir:
As architectural students, we
were profoundly shocked by the
suggested designs for UBC's special
events board, appearing in Wednesday's Daily Ubyssey. That' they
could be the, work of a fellow
student is a source of great shame
to us, and we can only offer the
rather inadequate explanation that
this student is in a Junior Year
and has yet to attain that maturity
of expression that we in the school
of architecture so earnestly strive
We hasten to agree with Mr.
Plant's suggestion that a piece of
contemporary architecture is
wretchedly out of place on the
venerable, ivy-grown grounds of
our beloved Alma Mater, and it is
the earnest wish of every responsible architecture student that
these (enclosed) alternative solutions be placed before the Student
Council, as being infinitely more
in keeping with the ancient tradition and architectural decorum of«
our university.
Because you have shown such a
marked personal interest in this
(until now) infamous project, we
have taken the liberty to forward
those suggestions through you in
order that UBC's student body
may be reassured, art and good
taste aro not dead on our campus.

Dear Sir:
What is our Ubyssey coming to,
when an article appears in thc
paper that no one can account for?
The article about free textbooks
is a definite slip on the staff of
the Ubyssey. These book were to
be shipped overseas, but have
been hanging around in dusty
heaps. I suggest that these books
now be sold to the students for a
nominal fee fjnd the proceeds
donated to the ISS. The moral of
this story is: don't believe what
you read in the paper.

came a.s wrapper for chips.
Wastrel Uncle, tears and vinigar glistening on wasted cheeks, is looking at Ubyssey
with editorial policy now controlled by soulless, penny-pinching, utilitarian-minded Students' Council.
Jack-booted Councillors, he notes, have
torn leaf from book of Juan Peron; and,
falling on free but troublesome press, have
taken possession in name of .shirtless dispossessed ones, all in name ol' freedom, liberty,
equality and Constitution of Alma Mater
Riding - crop - carrying    Councillors,    he
notes, have finally implemented policy of
making Ubyssey useful, instead of unwholesome; sane, instead of sensational; and dull
as ditchwater, instead of delirious.
Lewcl pictures of chorus girls (two columns four inches wasted newspaper space)
have been replaced by anagrams and crosswords puzzles; winning combinations of
words spelling out Councillors' names.
Vile columnists (four columns three and
one half inches wasted space) have long ago
been flung into outer darkness, and space
previously occupied now put to sensible
purpose, like this:

Minority Report
Lack Of Time
Chief Defect
Evidence presented to the
Plant Committee shows that
principal defect in the existing
AMS administration is the lack
of time each officer has to
carry out his duties, In addition to this officers lack the
knowledge and experience to
deal with the business management of the society.
Solution proposed by the committee
and to be brought up at today's special AMS meeting recommends that
the student society employ a full
time comptroller whose duties shall
be defined by the AMS.
The duties of the comptroller if
this amendment is passed at the
meeting will be as follows.
1. Control of the expenditure of
budgets as approved by  Council.
2. Assistance in preparation of the
treasurer's monthly report and other
reports to council.
3. Receiving and keeping in safe
etistody and having available for the
treasurer, all financial returns and
having necessary , documents for the
expenditure of monies.
flow television
makes jobs
for Canadians
The eye of the television
camera is an image-
orthicon tube. The heart
of the receiving set is a cathode-ray
tube. Most metal parts of these tubes
are nickel or nickel alloys.
In television receivers there are also
from 16 to 32 or more radio tubes of
which the metal parts are nickel, nickel
alloys or nickel coated. Nickel is also
used in x-Ray tubes and in long distance
telephone systems, including those
using the new coaxial cable.
Television has been developed through
long and exhaustive research by individuals and manufacturers of electrical
equipment, and in this research the
International Nickel research laboratories have co-operated
to the fullest extent.        {$
The    development    of
television has given rise
to an entirely qew market for Canadian Nickel.
New jobs are created for Canadians
both  in the Nickel   industry and in
industries which make equipment containing Nickel.
Thus does research develop better products, create more employment.

Casting nickel anodes at the
Port Colborne refinery
Tuesday, November 16, 1948/
For all intents and purposes
the 1948 football season is now
over and even the most ardent of
the Thunderbird supporters must
needs wince when glancing^ back
over his shoulder at what has gone
Actually there is still one more
: game on the
''Bird's agenda,
a tilt against
the Vikings of
^aW» ^SWM Western Washington, but judging from the
past, the outcome of that
contest is pretty
ty well decided except for the final score.
Ordinarily there would be little
point in re-enacting post-mortems
over the rather inglorious remains
of six Thunderbird defeats except
that the closing of this season
marks the end of three years of
Pacific Northwest Conference football and the results have been far
from gratifying.
Moreover, if the past looks bad,
the prospects for the future are
downright awful. Not only will
UBC stepping up into a far
tougher conference next year, but
she will also be losing four or
five of her best players with almost no sign of replacements.
The situation in a nut shell is
that after a three year attempt to
master the American game, UBC
has not quite made the grade and
chances of doing so in the near
future look even slimmer than they
did in 1&36.
And now let us look at the
reasons. Thunderbird players have
lacked everything except an inestimable quanntity of guts..
It's easy enough for gridmen to
play on a powerful squad, confident in the knowledge that they
have a winning combination, but
to go out as the 'Birds have done,
suffer through 60 minutes of ruthless pumelling from disciplined
and game-wise opposition and
then drag themselves almost unconscious off'the field of glory (?);
this is the sign of true heros.
Unfortunately, blind heroism is
not enough, however, nor will
there always be players willing
to take such unrewarded punishment and athletic directors Have
a big decision to make before
next  season.
They must either work out some
system whereby UBC's gridmen
can go onto the playing field with
something approaching a 50-50
chance or else give up the game
Some people have wondered if
Blue and Gold athletes have what
it takes to make good football
players, and the anwser is, of
course, a resounding yes.
The manner in which UBC rugger men have dominated the Eng-
the Pacific coast and most partic-
lish style game all up and down
ularly in Vancouver itself shows
that we have good ball players.
On the other hand those turning
out for football have to be taught
the simplest fundamentals by their
coach when he should be concentrating on complicated plays
and even then when the Varsity
players line up on the field, the
opposition always has a great deal
more  experience  than  they,
Obviously unless the whole face
of athletics changes in Vancouver,
we cannot expect to get many
trained gridmen arriving on the
campus as is the case in American
The establishment of a training
table and a junior Varsity team
here were steps in the right direction'this year but they are not
enough. There must be plenty of
good coaching, plenty of equipment and plenty of encouragement for  the players.
Heroes Made As 'Birds
Drop Final Home Tilt
Daily Ubyssey Photo By Denny Waller
TOUCHDOWN BOUND is UBC's shifty fullback Dougie Reid
who is shown during an electrifying 80-yard run which he made
to score standing up during Saturday's tilyvith Linfield. 'Birds
lost the game 13-7 but home owner Reid was easily the hero
of the day.

Golf Final
Veteran Clinches
Spot on Team
The University of British
Columbia has a new golf champion. Dick Hanley trounced
Don podie 6-5 in the 36 hole
final  which  was  played  last
Both Hanley and Bodie played anything but championship calibre golf
in the morning round.
There were only two bright spots
in the whole eighteen, birdies on the
1st and 2nd holes by Bodie and Hanley respectively. The remaining 16
holes were terrible t'o say the leest.
Hanley emerged with a 1 up edge
as the finalists went to lunch,
The afternoon session produced
some fine shot-making and exceptionally good scoring.
But the climax of the whole match
came on the 25th hole. Hanley's 15-
foot putt stopped just on the edge of
the cup. Bodie had a six-footer for
the win. He had a wide open hole t'o
putt into, but somehow he managed
to knock Hanley's ball into the cup
instead of his own.
That error gave Hanley a 4 up lead
and virtually cinched the match for
Dougie Reid has thrilled football fans in Varsity Stadium
for the last time as a Thunderbird gridder..

Varsity Hockey Squad
Splits Opening Tilts
UBC's hockey team splits its two opening encounters
edging out the Vancouver Indians 6-5, last Thursday and then
losing to Nanaimo 7-2 at the island city on Saturday night.

minutes   to   give   the   Indians   three
tallies without reply.
Lloyd Torfasson with three goals
Hass Young with two and "Wag"
Wagner with a singleton, scored the
UBC points. The only penalty to UBC
went to Torfasson for charging.
In Second Loss
Inability to score goals when they
had tho breaks cost thc Varsity soccer eleven their second straight district league game Saturday afternoon.
Capitalising on every opportunity,
undefeated Norquay whipped the
campus club 4-1 at Norquay Park, to
stretch their lead to three games over
Collingwood, and drop Varsity into
a third place t'ie with Raniers.
In intermediate play on Sunday,
tho luckless UBC squad bit the dust
again, bowing to Ex-Junior G Men
In other games Saturday, Collingwood blanked Raniers 3-0 and South
Hill came up with their first win ot
tho year, gaining a 2-1 verdict over
North  Burnaby. |
Scoring was divided evenly between thc two top lines with three
goals apiece. Both qombinations
functioned smoothly and appear to
be set for the season.
More than 2000 fans took in the
initial encounter which proved lucrative to the student coffers.
Things went differently for the
locals at Nanaimo on Saturday night
when they lost to i'he tough Clippers
7-2. It was a case o Jpugh breaks and
tough luck.
Nanaimo showed a smart, heavy-
checking team which should be the
class of the league.

Dmitri Goloubef, Don Nesbit, Eric
Cardinal, Bud Spiers and a few more.
Reid played his last home game as a
Thunderbird Saturday.
All of these men will graduate at
the end of this year.
Reid would be the last to admit it
but it was mostly his sparking play
that gave the local fans anything to
cheer about.
Against Linfield College in the
season finale it was Reid's 75 yard
run back of a kick that brought the
'Birds as close to victory as they have
been all season.
Had he a well-balanced team in
front of him there is little doubt that
the fair haired 180 pound fullback
would have been the highest ground
gainer in the conference. As it was,
he stands fifth which was no small
accomplishment' ensidering the spottiness of the UBC attack all season.
Although they didn't win any contests, the 'Birds were great in defeat because of the way they handled
themselves. They were a credit to
the university.
For that reason this reporter feels
that this team should be honored in
some way.
Probably the best way to do it
would be to honor the man amongst
them who bet exemplified the fighting  determination of  the footballer.
Dougie Reid's dirty white jersey
with the big 38 on it, encased in the
trophy room might well serve to remind future generations of UBC ath-
ltes that it is how they play the game
that will be remembered.
Ruggermen Held
In Scoreless Tie
By South Burnaby
The undefeated, untied Varsity Rugger machine came tq a
grinding stop Saturday when a
powerful South Burnaby team
held them to a scoreless draw.
The undefeated United Varsity
rugger machine came to a grinding
stop Saturday when a powerful
South Burnaby team held them to
a scoreless draw.
The students, confident of. Victory,
underestimated the strength of the
South Burnaby. They fere held down
virtually the whole of the game.the
only scoring opportunity coming in
the final minutes.
UBC lived up to Its usual reputation by going down to a 16-3 defeat
before Meralomas. lite students still
hampered by the loss of key players
were helpless before the 'Loma attack.
The hope, which at the beginning
of the season was so bright, for the
second string squad, is dimming fast
They haven't as yet won a game or
even come near to winning. It's a mi
state of affairs which will have to
be remedied if Al Laithwaite is to be
considered the coach he is thought
to be. -
