Koo Claims
Spells War
In addressing students assembled
in the auditorium Tuesday Dr. T.
Z. Koo, for twenty years secretary
of the SCM, outlined the essentials for a lasting peace.
He compared the forty naUona
assembled at San Fransisco for
the purpose of again trying to
weld themselves into an organ,
"The United Nations," to forty
national eggs. Each has been ncr-
tured on the principle of national
soverignity and on the emotion of
As Dr. Koo sees it, the only way
to produce an international omelette is by reaching across national boundaries to mix and form a
world community.
What is the real meaning of
peace? he asked. No war, yes but
that is a very negative answer.
The Chinese have three words for
The first is made up of the symbols for rice and mouth, put rice
in the mouths of the people reasons the Oriental mind and there
is a condition for peace and content.
Secondly, Dr. Koo showed the
word made up of roof and a woman under it, the symbol of home
ir the woman and under a roof
she is the bulwark of security
without which there is unrest.
Two and the symbol for the
heart portray the idea of two
hearts together and therefore happiness, friendship, understanding
and co-operation.
We are trying to write peace
which may only be a technical one
unless and only when the attitudes of the constituent nations
change from suspicion and hatred
to friendship and co-operation.
Christianity produces the will to
rise above wars, and nationality
and to think of one another.
Final Deadline
Far Totem Pix
Final deadline for all Totem Pix
is next Tuesday, December 3. Until
that date appointments will be accepted from students in the Faculties of Pharmacy, Law, Teacher's
Training, and Social Service.
Totem editor, Jean MacFarlane
warns that no late pictures will
be taken, and urges those who wish
their pictures to appear in the
yearbook to sign the appointment
sheet In the Quad immediately.
Graduation pictures may be used
by students in Teacher Training
and Social Service provided that
they appeared in Totem '46.
UBC Legion Offers
Health Insurance
A group health insurance plan covering both veteran
and   non-veteran  students   of  the   University  of  British
Columbia has been the subject of a survey conducted by the
campus branch of the Canadian Legion.
Dan Wright, 2nd year Agricul-        ——————————
ture student and Legion official
has been Investigating plans offered by various insurance companies. He stated, "Those UBC
students who wish to take advantage of this health insurance will
be covered in the following cases:
sickness and non-occupational accidents, surgery and surgical conditions, hospital benefits, nursing
services and maternity benefits.
The choice of a doctor is left up
to the beneficiary."
The rates under the group
plan are as follows:
Membership fee 13.00
Unmarried member fl.M
Member with 1 dependent $3.00
Member with 2 dependents $3.25
Member with 3 dependents |3.78
Member with
4 or more dependents ....$4.00
Policy holders may obtain benefits up to $1,000 in one year.
Wright went on to say "Members of this group-plan have been
offered special rates by the North
Pacific Health and Accident Association because of the fact that
a large number of UBC students
is expected to participate.
Legion officials stress that although their organisation has arranged this health scheme, non-
veteran students are urged to take
advantage of its unique coverage
and reduced fees.
Mr. H. Perley-Martln of the
North Pacific Health and Accident
Association will be available to
persons interested in the plan all
next week from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m.,
In the Legion office.
Research Grants

physical properties of synthetic
rubber. This work, is being carried
on under the direction of Dr. H
D. Smith.
The remainder of the grant,
$5400 will be used for special research ln nuclear pnysica under
Dr. Kenneth C. Mann. This fund

Artsmen Hold
Unique Vote
Fifty-two conscientious student*
of the University of British Columbia, who showed up for the
election of an Arts Undergraduate
Society executive saw, In place of
dragging their feet through routine nose-counting, a bout of spirited debating, creation of a new
committee to their body, and finally two ex-servicemen swept into top seats on their executive.
Elected to the posts of president
and vice-president were Bob Cal)
and Ralph Huene.
On passage of a motion from th*.'
floor by Grant Livingston—"that
a body be appointed to prevent
more such disgraceful turnouts as
this"—a pep committee was created, made up of the defeated
candidates for offices, snd two
students from the floor who spoke
up pro and con the following defeated motion.
Discussion on advisability of appointing a vice-president from
pure sciences to the Arts executive (which was imposible because
none of the three candidates for
vice-president's post were pure
science) was followed by a proposal from John Beltz that a "provisional government" be set up
until the question could be threshed out.
Motion was voted down on
grounds that student apathy would
not be improved by delay.
Appointed to the new committee were Joan Fraser, Herb Capozzi, Rosemary Hodgins, John Beltz and BUI Gait.
McGill Veterans
Blame Executive
MONTREAL, Nov. 27, (CUP)-
Chargea made by the preset executive of the McGill Veterans'
Society that last year's executive
"acted in an unauthorized manner" have been denied.
In a statement to the McGiU
Daily, November 18, the new executive claimed that, during the
previous year, "scanty records'"
had been kept of executive meetings; that a newspaper, believed
to be a propaganda organ for the
Labor Progressive Party," had
been offered a list of the name*
and addresses of society members
and that two checks issued had
been returned marked "insufficient funds."
It was also charged that resolutions were forwarded to outside
authorities without general approval.
Members of last year's executive declared that the statement
amounted to "red-baiting," was
comprised of "half-truths and accusations," and constituted "an attack on the integrity and work of
the executive."
They charged the new executive
with ignoring the campaign for
increased grants, and generally attempting to "take the steam out
of the veterans' society and lay the
basis for its final disolution."

One-Act Plays
At Drama Meet
Four one-act plays will be presented when the second annual
western Canadian Inter-Varsity
Drama Festival comes to UBC
January 17 and 18.
The Festival, inaugurated last
year by Lois McLean of U of A
was so successful that it was decided to make it an annual affaii
and UBC will play host to the
second performance. Four universities will participate, with
representatives coming from Manitoba, Saskatchewan. AJberta and
those from our own campus.
This year's presentation frorr
UBC, one of the comedies "Solomon's Folly" or "Pierre Patelin'
which were presented last weekend, will contrast sharply with the
play produced last year, "Altar-
Piece," a serious piece with a
racial plot.
Two of the participants will present serious plays while the others
will produce comedies.
January 16 has been set aside
for a special presentation for students only and reduced rates will
be offered.

End Of Spring Session
Officials of Canadian Legion Branch 72 of the University
of British Columbia will meet with the administration this
afternoon to discuss the cancellation of the spring sessions.
Recent announcement by faculty representatives to the
effect that the short courses instituted for benefit of veterans
would not be held this spring has led to much discussion
among students.

USC' Charges 'Babbling'
Prevents Good Coverage
"Too much space is given to the 'babbling' of certain
columnists and to 'Beauty on the Spot' in the Ubyssey rather
than to notices of interest to various undergraduate societies."
This is the opinion of the Undergraduate Societies Committee,
according to president Bill McKay.
A motion was passed that tht       ______________________
attention of the Student Council
be drawn to this alleged difficulty
ot inserting faculty notices in the
siudent newspaper. A committee
will be appointed to Invstigate
specific examples and report to
the 17SC.
At the same meeting of the Undergraduates Societies Committee
Monday, November 23, there was
strong agitation by the Engineering
Undergraduates Society that students, particularly members of the
graduating class, be permitted to
select the proof of their picture for
the '47 Totem.
So far this year proofs have been
selected by the photographers. Last
year students selected their own.
However, ''The cost of publishing
would be increased by the added
work and mailing costs entailed"
and "Since the whole success of the
annual depends on it coming out on
time, and since too much time ls
taken choosing the proofs, we feel
that the present practise must be
continued", said Jean MacFarlane,
editor of the Totem.

Student Funds
Help Fight TB
Funds from ISS are providing
widespread relief to the victims ol
the war in Europe, especially in
the provision of hospitals and san-
To combat the rising Incidence
of TB, ISS opened the International University Sanatorium al
Leysin, Switzerland in February
1945. The sanatorium Is open to
all nationalities and Italians have
beds with Dutch patients on one
side and French on the other. A
report from Geneva compares a
ward in Leysin to an international conference.
Whie academic courses are not
offered at the sanatorium, each
studen^ who has his doctor's consent ia free to organize his studies
for himself. Education Is achieved
through conferences and discussions with professors, writers, artists and the 18,000 volume library
at their disposal.
Besides the education offered the
work acts as a vital factor in
treatment of the disease—a type
of occupational therapy.
The Swedish Committee recently announced that 25 places had
been made available for forelgi.
TB students In Sweden. The tremendous need for such accommodation is contained in a Polish re-
port which states that the incidence of tuberculosis amongst
Polish students is extremely high,
unofficially estimated at 00 per
cent, of which 30 per cent are open
The administration, through Dean
Buchanan, requested the Legion
to ascertain attitudes of student
veterans to the spring sessions
about three weeks ago. Response
was considered to foe sufficient to
warrant consideration, in the opinion of veteran officials.
"UntU after this meeting," said
Grant Livingstone, president of
Branch 72, "we have no statement
to make regarding our policy on
the matter."
Student opinion on the campus
seems to be at variance with the
previously announced faculty decision.
Those students interviewed by
The Ubyssey look on the spring
session as ap opportunity to accelerate their courses and consider it
of great financial advantage to
the veteran.
Every student interviewed gave
his or her opinion without hesitation, an evidence that the subject
has occasioned much discussion on
the campus. Both veterans and
civilians were interviewed by The
Sufficient consideration does not
seem to have been given to the
veteran who is trying to get
through his or her course as rapidly as possible In order to become re-established in a civilian
occupation," said one civilian woman student.
An RCAF veteran said: "This
will lengthen my university
attendance by one year as
courses which I planned to take
during spring and summer
sessions would give me one
year's credits."
An ex-WD had this to say:
"Many WD*s will not be discharged
till next month. Some of these
girls planned to attend spring session and thus accelerate their university work. Now they will have
to wait for a longer period during
which time they may or may not
be able to get jobs."
An American veteran, who ls
not affected by Canadian DVA
grants, had the following statement
to make: "I had planned on taking
three courses during spring session and others during the summer to accelerate my course. TCiis
decision will put me back one
year. Ex-Service students are eager
to complete their courses as quickly as possible. Many are in the
older student group with family
xtesponsibiUtias. , An extra year
can make a great difference to
their plans."
Commented one of the "older
group": "I am in my flnal year so
will not be personally affected by
the faculty decision. However, I
attended spring and summer sessions last year and if it had not
been for this, I would not be able
to graduate till next year. Recognizing the difficulties for the
administration entailed in extra
sessions, I think that if it is et all
possible the spring sessions should
be continued.
"It is possible that there may be
some loss of standard in the spring
session work as tune Is such an
important factor, but the financial
advantage to the veteran must
also be considered."
Another veteran suggested that
the cancellation of the spring session would be of no aid to the
problem of overcrowding.
An attempt to revive recently
discontinued Co-ordinating Committee was defeated at the Monday
night Student Council meeting.
A delegation of Rosemary Hodgins, secretary of literary and
Scientific Executive and Bill
Smith, president of Mamooks
made the proposal in order to eliminate frequent clashes In noon
hour functions.
"However, since Buzz Walker,
Co-ordinator of Social Activities,
13 planning to enforce the filling
out Control Reports during the
spring session, there will be no
need for the re-intatement of the
committe," said delegate Rosemary Hodgins.

functions, may be filed for 'future
reference, and are an accessable
form of information for the Publications Board, Mamooks, and
other    interested    organizations,"

Justice Denis Murphy Retires
The retirement of Honorable
Justice Denis Murphy from the
Board of Governors* was announced yesterday. Justice Murphy, a
native of British Columbia who
has been on the Board longer
than any of its members' has served almost continuously since his
appointment in 1917.
He served with the Boaro.
through every major event in tho
history of the university and has
helped to guide it through the
precarious days of the depression,
the war and its present expansion.
An authority on the history ot
the university as well as that ot
the province, he was noted for his
strong liberalism and his progressive attitude toward education
and this university in particular.
He was always a staunch supporter of student activity and government.
In announcing his retirement
President N. A. M. MacKenzie
made this statement. "Both the
Board of Governors and I personally, deeply regret the retirement
of the Honorable Justice Murphy
from the Board. His long experience and wide judgement were
invaluable and enabled him to
make a contribution which It will
be impossible to replace."
A member of the administration
said of Justice Murphy, "He has
been, since the Inception of the
university its staunchest and most
untiring champion."
Justice Murphy was born in the
Cariboo where his father was well
known during the Cariboo gold
rush. He graduated from Ontario
College and served his apprenticeship in law In Victoria. He
practised law in Ashcroft far
several years and was MLA foi
His citation at this congregation
paid a fitting tribute to him. "For
19 years bestowed the benefit ot
unique equipment,' namely the
realistic wordly wisdom of the
Cariboo Trail and the angelic
wisdom, so the Middle Ages called
it, of St. Thomas Aquinas, and
with the same equipment he has
for upwards of 30 years dispensed
from the Supreme Court of B.C.

With the Gym Drive coming to an end,
this is as good a time as any for the undergraduate officials concerned with such things
to take a stand against the continual and
petty attacks suffered by pocketbooks on
this campus in the name of some worthy
cause or another.
All too often in the past minor functions
have been transformed into benefit performances, until it has become difficult for
anyone to find some event when some
demand is not made upon the undergraduate's finances.
The tendency to impose a charge on various events, or to increase the established
rate, has served more as an annoyance than
as a worthwhile money-raiser. The Gym
Drive has undoubtedly been the chief offender in this regard, almost to the point of
ridiculousness. No matter How inspiring a
collection of fifty or a hundred dollars may
be, it has served mainly to Impose unexpected expenditures upon student budgets.
Furthermore, it would take ten thousand
such collections to build the gym.
The philosophy seems to have been that
"No one will miss ten cents here or twe-bits
there;" the fact is that some students do feel
tiie pinch from such small amounts. It is
quite obvious already that many students
de not get full value from their AMS fees,
and in some cases that is not their own fault.
That being the case, the best policy would
be one of levying additional charges only
when necessary. Any time that an ordinary
event can be staged for nothing it should
bo organized that way.
A case in point is the siphoning off of the
proceeds from the reduced rate which the
Alma Mater Society secured for tonight's
performance of Henry V. A good many of
the students who would most want to see
that picture would very much appreciate
the chance to save a little money in the
process. Instead, it was seen fit to charge
the full price to the students and to grab
the difference for the Gym Drive.
If it is necessary to raise money for
special projects, then special functions
should be held for the purpose or only the
larger functions already planned should be
devoted to the purpose. It has been proven
in the past that one or two large functions,
specially dedicated to a worthy cause, may
be much more efficient (and much less annoying to most people) than a flock of
penny-grabbing efforts tied onto otherwise
free affairs.
The announcement of the retirement of
the Honourable Justice Denis Murphy from
the Board of Governors is sad news for the
University. In the history of UBC there is
perhaps no other single person who has
worked so unceasingly for, and contributed
so much in wisdom and experience to, our
institution. Few students realize the debt
which they owe to him personally, as a
champion, of their rights and privileges and
a firm believer in the self-governing principle of student government.
The Honourable Justice Murphy has
served on the Board of Governors for almost
twenty-five years. He helped to guide the
University through the first post-war con
version period, was its most vigorous supporter through the difficult depression years
when its very existence was threatened, and
has since taken a lead ln the formation of
plans for expansion. ' Though a man in the
latter years of life, he Is nevertheless noted
for his strong progressive and liberal attitude, his faith in the future of UBC, and his
unshakeable confidence in youth.
On behalf of the student body, The
Ubyssey would like to pay tribute here to
its most respected Governor, to extend to
him our gratitude and our wish that he will
live to see this University achieve the dignity
and stature which his faith in it has
The Wassail Bowl
It is heartening to find that a great many
UBC students value their civil rights enough
to stand against their being denied to Canadians of Japanese ancestry. This feeling
was displayed clearly enough in the Parliamentary Forum last week when the members present, unable to find anyone to argue
against the return of Japanese students to
this university, held a panel discussion on
the subject. In voting unanimously for the
"return", they indicated their realization of
the danger in persecuting minorities, and
their distrust of the deep-seated prejudice
which characterizes the residents of the
coast area.
That the Japanese have not yet been reinstated in the coastal zone, and that Canadians of East Indian and Oriental ancestry
are yet disenfranchised in this province,
prove that Canadian democracy has many
steps to take before it can be called
The persecution of the Japanese—and
what else can our treatment of them be
called?—was excused on the basis of War
Emergency. Their presence in the coastal
zone might have been dangerous both to
themselves and to others during the war. At
any rate, public opinion had to be satisfied;
reason seldom cries above the noise of panic.
Yet when the war ended, and presumably
the danger with it, hot heads and loud voices
succeeded in forestalling the return of full
civil rights to the Japanese against whom
few, If any, charges of disloyalty, sabotage,
and conspiracy were even lodged.   Instead,
deportation proceedings were begun The
boatloads of "Canadians" leaving Vancouver
harbour for Japan not long ago make sorry
reading in the history of Canada.
The prejudice against the Japanese—as
against so many minorities on this continent
—owes its morbid existence to misunderstanding, fear, economic distress, rumor, and
misrepresentation. It cannot claim the fatherhood of fact. Yet prejudice is permitted
to grow into a fat, complacent parasite which
will surely gnaw out the heart of democracy.
For the civil rights which so many people
sincerely believed they were defending in
war cannot be given to some and denied
others Canada was built of minorities, and
seems today to be almost a federation of
minorities. There is no one national or religious group in this country which can claim
an absolute majority of the population.
When the rights of one minority are threatened, therefore, the rights of all are threatened equally. When one group is persecuted, the precedent thus established puts
another group in danger..
Whatever it is about the Japanese that the
people of B.C. fear or dislike, persecution
is neither a wise nor a safe solution. Municipal and provincial legislation can prevent
economic malpractice; public education can
guarantee Canadian loyalty. Repression is
not the answer.
The Parliamentary Forum here at UBC
has taken a broad and fearless stand toward
reinstatement of civil rights to the Japanese
Canadians Students who ally themselves
with liberal and progressive causes must
follow the Forum's lead.
On Thc Wagon
. . .with DON STAINSBY
With Malice, Without Thought
Judging by tho facts presented
in Peter Remnant's latest column
it would seem that the old Arena
has exactly one rat scuttling
around amongst the litter.
Obviously enough things at ths
Melchior concert were not all they
might have been, but it was not
the fault of the Publications
Board phetographer, upon whom
the spotlight has fallen as a result
of the Immortal words of Mr.
It appeal's that the flare of flash
bulbs at times disrupted the harmony  of Mr.  Remnant's  artistic
soul, and, together with the seemingly poor 'stuff being offered by
Mr. Melchior, the tension became
too great and our reviewer began
to see things.
When he referred to the rats in
the Arena, he obviously referred
to not one rat, but several—perhaps even several large families of
rats. (It is hard to Imagine that
a place as large as the Arena
would have only one rat). The
only difficulty with this theory is
that there were only two photographers at the concert, and only
one of them was an accredited
Publications pixie.
In Defence of Consideration
Bob Steiner, who, as the orthodox Pub photographer present,
will receive the publicity and attending bad name occasioned by
this unfortunate limelight, has a
reputation in the Pub for being one
photographer who is considerate of
the subject of his flashgun.
Steiner, who, by the way, is not
responsible for the' second, 'amateur', photographer's presence at
tha concert, is the type who waits
until a moment arises when he will
not disturb too greatly the effectiveness of such a gathering as
the Melchior concert ln the Armory,
At that concert, Steiner waited
until well towards the end of the
show before he flashed any bulbs
In Mr. Melchior's beaming face.
Steiner took only four pictures
during the course of the whole
It would not seem to be asking
too much forbearance on the part
of our critics to allow for the necessities of adequate coverage of
'big time' events on the campus.
Nervous, oversensitive people
who attend these concerts only to
criticize and watch the audience
aro the only people who noticed
the flashes. Many people have
commented that — although Mr.
Melchior was "Without a Song*
they did not notice the flashes at
all. How now, mad critic?
In Proof of Consideration
It is a pity that the other photographer is nameless, but that cannot be helped. He should be
brought forward and reprimanded
for apparently disturbing the
Bob Steiner, on the other hand,
spoke to Mr. Melchior before the
concert and arranged with him
for the most suitable time to take
pictures. "I know my manners,"
said Steuier, and his actions prove
his statement
Mr. Melchior asked Bob to wait
until the end of the concert, and
designated "Vive la compagnle" as

In connection with the announcement by the Administration that
the Special Short Sessions for Veterans will not be revived in 1947,
a special delegation of the Canadian Legion, Branch 72, waited
upon Dr. MacKenzie today.
Some time ago a general meeting
of the Legion proposed to carry
out a survey to And out how many
ex-service students would be wanting to attend a Special Spring Session. The Administration, through
Dean Buchanan, seconded this pro-
Now the announcement has come
that there will be no more special
sessions, and the Legion wishes to
draw the attention of the Administration to the results of the survey, hoping to modify that decision.
The members of the delegation
were Grant Livingstone, President
of Branch 72; Perry Millar, Vice-
President; snd John MacKenzie,
Business Manager.

not to hold its monthly Oeneral
Meeting for December. The date
of the January Oeneral Meeting
will be announced.
Letters to the Editor
Dear Sir:
"Resolved that Japanese Canadiana should be allowed to attend
UBC."—Of course lt was psssed
"oy a unanimous vote." Naturally
there was no student "narrow enough in his outlook to argue a-
gainst re-admittance."
But there are many, many students who strongly disapprove ot
the manner in which discussion of
the resolution, reasonable as it U
in itself, was distorted into s full
dress campaign against the British Columbians who do not wish
'this fair province' to become an
Asiatic cqlony.
At least three of the four speakers on the panel virtually ignored
the substance of the resolution
and treated themselves to harangues afMnst what they called
"race prejudice" or "race hatred'
with table thumping too.
If I may stand in the Parliamentary Forum as an Independent
Member, let us say representing
the constituency of the West Coast
I will gladly introduce, and defend in debate, a private bill ex
follows: "Resolved that settlement
of Asiatic people in British Columbia should be discouraged."
Yous truly,

USC Chairman Promises    Lab Assistants
To Air Student Opinion
With its new executive painlessly elected, the Undergraduate Societies Committee, official "conscience" of the
Students' Council, promises to polish up its hitherto unspectacular record.
Through the clear-sighted policies of its new chairman,
Bill McKay, the body shows definite signs of passing from
the wobbling infant to the short-pants stage.
"As   in   other   years,"   McKay       _________________
It's Time For A Change
All it takes to build a $500,000
memorial is a whopping big wax
and about eight thousand of Its

Right now, the facilities as they
exist must be Used to their utmost, and this means practicing
the rules of co-operation.
It's nice the way six people get
all their clothes Into one locker.

The request from European students for correspondents in Canada is gradually becoming a flood

Most of the letters are marked

Miss Marian Henderson. Mist
Jean Charmichael, and Miss Isabel
Clay of the Physical Education
Department do a big Job of organizing the women into an active
athletic group. By teaching ths
girls how to play such games as
badminton, table tennis and golf,
all according to the rules, a lot
of neophytes find that a little exercise can really be a lot of fun.
To help along that poise that a
university education ls supposed
to give you, this Department runs
a series of rhythmic and dancing
All this Is very well for the
Toties who take regular classes ln
archery, fencing, swimming and
others 'arts, or manage to work
off their exuberance according to
a schedule.
Some* of the serious - minded
students, a majority nowadays,
would like to get in a little handball, or go for a swim now and
then. In fact, there are a lot of
athletic things they would like to
know how to do.
In the past there has been so
very little effort at teaching these
aspirants to play these invigorating and relaxing games that they
cannot now afford the time needed to learn.
It takes a lot of fine examples
of vigorous, clean-living physics!
instructors to set the examples required to uphold the physics.,
mentll and moral precepts leading
to a full life.
Such people fill Canadian history and must fill our future.

Attack Policy
Pre-Med student veterans who
were denied admittance' to the
faculty of medicine this fall at
the University of Manitoba are
planning to take theu* case before
the provincial legislature at its
noxt session.
The veterans charge that, la
falling to provide adequate facilities for medical training, the university haa had to exclude many
who were qualified to enter by its
own published standards.
Approximately 240 applications
were turned down this fall by the
medical selection committee. According to the policy of the university, ths number of students
entering first year medicine has
been limited to 60 since 1932.
At present, decision as to wheth*
er or not there will be a special
class admitted to medicine in
January, rests with an investigation committee appointed recently

stated to a reporter, "The USC will
do its best to reflect student
opinion." Unlike other years, its
duties have now been well defined
and a concrete course of action
laid out.
The USC now acts as a bridge
and a brace between the undergraduate mass and their elected
representatives. Its method of
carrying out these functions is
completely democratic. Any motion
passed by an undergraduate committee is presented to USC for
approval, and then brought before
the Council by Chairman McKay
who tries to get it voted upon,
passed and carried out
In addition the committee has
two generalized functions; to advise the Students' Council on
matters affecting general student
welfare, end to help co-ordinate
student opinion and council action.
"I consider that these are two
vital functions, because USC is the
only organization on the campus
which is in a position to reflect the
wishes  of the students,"  •tated

The "B" team of UBC's Badminton Club registered an 8-4 victory over the Quilchena Club of
ths Vancouver Badminton League
Tuesday night.
The Varsity players showed
their strength in winning all their
men's and mixed double matches.
Members of the winning Varsity team that played on the Quilchena courts were: Connie Liddel,
Barb Simpson, Biddy White, Leslie White, Bob Nilon, Bruce Bent-
' ham, Howard De Beck, and Denny Thompson.
Several of UBC's top badminton
racquet wielders have entered into the Vancouver Badminton

Outstanding Varsity contender

Other Varsity players to participate b the tourney are Barb

an official conference tilt, it is a
series that the 'Birds have come
to look forward to over the last
two years. In that short time, the
two teams have met in hoopla
warfare six times and in each case,
the contest has been a honey.
Unfortunately, the local fans will
not see the Webfoots in action this
year as the Oregon quintet cannot
work a Vancouver game into their
schedule but the two game series
this weekend will make up for it
and lt Is hoped that next year, the
Ducks will be able to return to the
UBC campus.
The 'Birds will leave tonight and
will play their first game against
the Oregon squad at Portland tomorrow night on the maples of
Jefferson High. The second tilt is
to be played at McArthur Court
on the Eugene Campus.
Coach Hobble Hobson has moulded a squad that is supposed to be
a great deal stronger than the entry
the Duckmen had last year. The
whole team with the exception of
one man will be returning to do

He is Bob Hamilton, former cap-
four-year letterman. A constant
threat at all times, Bob was Indeed
a smooth operator when it came
to handling that melon. *
In the six tilts that the two teams
have played, Varsity has managed
two victories and strangely enough,
both victories were on the Oregon
floor. That was on Jan. 2 and 3 of
this year when the 'Birdmen
chalked up wins of 72-61 and 62-60.
In November of last year, the
Oregon squad took two tilts from
Blue and Gold quintet ln the pre-
conference training period. The
other two tilts were played here
when Murray Van Vliet was coaching the Thunderbirds two years
The Oregon boys are touted as
one of the best teams ln the Pacific Coast Conference this year. The
conference itself is symbolic of
basketball of top calibre, so if the
'Birds manage to snatch even one
win in the two-game series, they
will do very well for themselves,
considering that the season is still
very young.

Varsity's 1946 tribe of Chiefs promises plenty of action for casaba fans when the hoopla
five that ranks second only to the Thunderbird basket brigade tackles Stacey's mighties of
maples at Varsity gym one week from Saturday night.
Final selection of the Chiefs' roster has yet to be made, but what with a generous
supply of hoop artists turning out for practices, it should be merely a matter of picking the
cream of a bumper crop for display at the Chiefs'  debut  into the  city's  1946  senior A
basketball loop.
The Varsity' basketmen will have
a high standard to live up to, since
last year's Chiefs romped through
the 1945 schedule, taking a place
position behind the loop-winning
Lauries Pie-Rates.
Armchair experts are dubious as
to the potentialities of the Laurie
crew, since the Pie-Rates have had
troubles of their own this year,
They have just re-entered the 1946
card after dropping out for lack
of players.
Staceys may have a slight drop
on the student crew in the letter's opener, since they will have
had one league game under their
belts before visiting for the campus affair.
The Chiefs, on the other hand
will have only the experience of
an early exhibition tussle behind
their opening efforts, having gone
down before the Meraloma five in
a pre-season encounter.
However the fact that the student
cagers took a 48-40 loss is overshadowed by the fact that they
fought a close battle from start to
finish, and promise to perform
equally well in the season's

The Rugby moguls have been
busy this week planning a multitude of games. Slated for this
week are no less than five games,
including a battle between Varsity and Ex-South Burnaby, ana
UBC and North Shore All-Blacks.
This afternoon will see a second
division game between Varsity
Sophs and St. Georges. Ihe game
will be on the Upper field at 4.0U
The remaining four games of
the week will all be played Saturday afternoon at various parks
around the city.
The two first division games will
get under way at 2:30, as the league-leading Varsity fifteen meets
a squad from South Burnaby at
Central Park, and UBC faces the
league cellar dwellers, All-Blacks,
at Douglas Park.
Also featured Saturday are two
second division games. Engineers
will kick off against Ex-Britannia
at 3:15 on the green of Connaught
Park, and the Frosh fifteen battles Meralomas at Douglas Park,
game time will be 2:00 p.m.
Featured In the three line will
be the stars of the gridiron, Doug
Reid and Don Nesbitt. Also on
hand will be stellar aggregation of
all the power men of the fall season, including Russ Latham and
captain Barry Morris. Out of town
players who go home for the holidays will have expenses paid If
they come back to Vancouver for
the game. Practices are now being
held regularly for this Boxing Day
classic, and coach, Haines is trying
to perfect the team under the new
rules in an attempt to avenge the
defeate of Rememberance Day.
Definitely scheduled are the McKechnie Cup games for the Provincial Championship. Entered ln
the series will be Victoria's Crimson Tide, Vancouver's Lions and
the cup-holding Varsity's Thunderbirds. Oames are scheduled for
the end of February. Varsity will
play each opponent once in the
Stadium, will play one game in
Brockton Bowl, and will then
travel for the fourth game to McDonald Park in Victoria. In case
of a tie, as last year, the teams
will play a knockout series for
total points.

meets behind them—the Intramural
Cross Country Classic, and the
time trials—are rated in perfect
condition, and are granted an even
chance to cop the laurels for the
