WURF May Sponsor
Drama Contest,
Air McGoun Trials
Two innovations in Canadian
campus broadcasting may be introduced by the Western University
Radio Federation this spring.
There is a possibility that a dramatic radio festival among te four
Western uhiversities and a broadcast of the historic McGoun Cup debates will be made, as a result of
discussions at the three-day WURF
conference here.
Plans for the dramatic contest do
not include int'er-campus broadcasts.
Recordings oi' the best plays produced by each university will be sent
to each of the competitors. Thus each
campus would hear all the four play:
New chairman of WURF is Michael
Thompson of University of Manitoba,
who succeeded Ernie Perrault of
UBC. i
the totem will represent the traditions of his people. Scow will be
among the students on hand on October 30 to see the totem given to them
as members of the Alma Mater Society. The presentation will be made
by his father Chief Billy Scow of the
Qvvi-qua-su-tiniuk Indian tribe.
The ceremony will take place at
half-time during the UBC-College of
Idaho football game on the final day
of Homecoming Week, Chief Scow
who may be accompanied by members of his tribe, will come from Alert
Bay especially for Vhe colorful event.
*fftrfAN THEME "
According to Student Council official's the events of the day will
feature an Indian theme built around the presentation ceremony. The
22-foot totem will later be given a
permanent place of honor on the lawn
in front of Brock Hall.
Arts student Scow, who intends to
study law at UBC "in order to help
my people," recounted the legend of
lis tribe which surrounds the totem.
In the days before the white  man
came    the    legend    says,   Tsi-ka-mi.
Chief   Magician   of   the   Red   Cedar
Bark dance was tied to a boulder by
his      enemy,     Kha-ne-ki-laq,      and
thrown  into  the  sea.  But  Konigwis.
lord of the deep, released Tsi-ka-mi
nncl  sent   him   back   to   the   surface,
after giving him a totem pole.
This totem, so the legend goes,
showed the great creatures Of the
depths. There was Ma-akinuk, the
powerful man monster, holding
Waakes, the frog. Next came Kuuma,
the bullhead whale and Naanis, tho
monster grizzly bear of the sea. Surmounting all t'hese was the mighty
.To this clay, said Scow, his people
use the totem when they dance and
sing of Tsi-ku-mi's accomplishments.
The pole being given to UBC students is an exact replica of the great
chief's  totem,   he  added.
UBC's  totem  is now  nearing com
pletion in the Stanley Park Workshop
of Mr. and Mrs. Ted Neel, who arc
donating the emblem to the, AMS.
Mrs. Neel is a member of Chief
Scow's  family.
Working in their studio a stone's
throw from the Pauline Johnston
monument near Third Beach, the
Neel's seek to preserve Indian Art.
Hours of painstaking labor were involved in carving the UBC totem,
Hand-made adzes and other tools
similar to those used when the white
man came, are used to cut the grotesque figures from the huge red
cedar log.

Berlin blockade was precipitated
by the "capitalist betrayors ofl Yalta

meeting of the student LPP Club.
Immediate cause of the blockade
was the introduction in Berlin of
Western Marks, he asserted.
"Tlie chaos caused by this deliberate attempt to sabotage Berlin's economy by splitting it in two necessitated a blockade," Morris told the
"The letter and the spirit ofYalta
have been consistently violated by

"Yalta," he said, "provided for a

Western pattern not the .Soviet but

take the risk of having Germany
turn Socialist have done everything
in their power to prevent such a constitution from being established by

Ottawa, October 19—(CUP)UBC is
not the only Candian University with
a student employment bureau.
Carleton College, Ottawa, boasts
an active placement service under
the direction of Mrs. Grace E. May-

many students part-time jobs in

It is also planned to start a baby

The 1947 Fall jBall provides a singular

<T,his year's Homecoming Committee with

, fortunately seem to be aware of last year's
mistakes and are making sure that the AMS

Obviously if, the Ball is goi^g to be a success couples have got to be able to ((dance
without looking like a TVenty-Mule Tepm ad-

As for liquor, soft drinks and not "mixer"
will be served.
The catering problem which caused such a
hopeless foul-up last year is being dealt
with simply. There will be no catering, couples
serve .themselves.
Ticket sales are being checked very carefully this year and no one is to.be .admitted
free but the| Indians, who have a reservation.

In discovering the "arty" people also buy
'.newspapers, one ol our evening contemporaries has passed along bouquets to the theatrical
,.crowd".at,UBC in a special six-page "Arts in
Our Town" supplement. Tlie nice words point
,;to the growth of the UBC Players Club since
,jt..s formation more  than 30 years  ago, the
mooted Workshop Theatre for student playwrights and'the importance of UBC's summer
cchopl of the theatre.
.What catches our attention in this bit of
high-toned newspaper promotion is the acceptance of the university, and its art, as
part of "our town,"
of the whole community, evidence of whiqh
has been given many times recently, is one
of the most refreshing aspects of UBC's postwar coming 'of age. Its debut from cloistered
infancy to a position of leadership in Byitish
Columbia is a tribute to the "new guard''
captains of U,BC.
But while citizens past Blanca Street aye
willing to accept UBC as part of "pur town,"
there are many at the university who still
must come to recognize the role of the university in completing the cultural life of the
province before British Golumbia'~cati truthfully speak of "our university.'"

i/cr   Sir:
With refn-ente to your "Let Law-
yi is Blush'' editorial, in particular
the last sentence but cne, stating
that our resolution "does not represent Ihe opinions of law students
on this campus", suffice it to say
that a resolution is not supposed to
represent "opinions", but rather the
"opinion" of a number large enough
lo   ser.ure   adoption.   This   one   did.
Many    law   students    believe    that,
investigation   should   precede   Publication,   and   Publication  should   pro-
aedceondernnation.    We   merely   dis--.
ocliite  ourselves  from  the view that
one   should   start   with   loud   yowls
...   condemnation,   followed,   perhaps,
later still,  after  the  issues are thoroughly   beclouded   with   emotion,   by
an  investigation   into  tho  facts.

Da.'ir Sir:
May 'I through the medium of your
valuable columns take this oppoiv
i'unity r,'f extending to the student
CCF club the heartfelt thanks and
Ihe deep appreciation cf thc student
Progressive-Conservative   Club.
TiVne mellows all things. It seems
lo he mellowing the sharp odor of
of the CCF pinks in the Marxist
rt ".e-g:n den. How else are we Vo account for the unparalleled munifi-
icnce displayed by the CCFees last
v.cckcnd in their decision to bring
our own speakers to the campus?
But really, Mr Editor, this warm
compassion gives us some concern. It
i.s really so un-CCF-like to concede
that, after all, the uneducated, the
un regenerated, and the uninitiated
ore capable of deciding whom they
would like lo hear other than the
CCF acredited licensed and authentic.
Mr. Murray Uryce used to be a firm
believer in planning and a >,"irm believer in deciding 'whni' i.s good fcr
the people. Surely he is not going to
decide now that perhaps the people
aie 'enable of deciding these th'i'ngs
for themselves.. If so, he qualifies;
for membership in the tottering Pro-.
grcKive-Conr.crvntivo Club.
Once they sen the other side ri the
question, they stop being CCFers.;
And admitting that there is another
side i.s the first step on the road to
foul, fascisi'ie, black-hearted reaction.

It was with mixed emotions of .wonder
and fear that I sat down yesjterday behind ,a
typewriter to present for,the first time my
very own column.
You see, I'm a second string columnist. For
.months I have sat in a dark corner of the
^editorial room, a blanket thro^ over jny
shoulders, eager, lull of magnificent, id€$s,—
only to return to the dressing room despondent
at the end of each day.
In a small way I shared in the glory of the
first string stalwarts who day after day
fought their ideas to a triumphant conclusion.
The names used to swim before my eyes in
an endless procession. . . 'the mummery''

have a big chance.
And then yesterday it happened. The editor had been pacing up and down before me,
chewing on the stub of his unjit cigar, strong
(the editor, not the cigar), silent, grimly determined. Things were going-badly. Several
of the best men had been injured. Hangnails
and hangovers.
Suddenly, murmuring something about "the
fbqttom of the barrel" the editor yfheele,d
Qbout and faced me squarely. Through half
closed lips he spoke the awful words. . .
"Tuum est!"
At last. My big chance had come. With,
characteristic eagerness I threw off my blanket, jammed my snap-brimmed" fedora on my
head, lit my bulldog pipe and trotted into
the managing editor's xj&ice.
"Baines in for Tennant,'' I shouted with
pride. I threw myself into the,huddle around
the city editor's chair, smiling cheerfully and
breathing words of encouragement to my
He glanced up with a look of loathing nn
his tired face and murmured  thoughtfully:
"It's (ugh) you.''
From this moment I felt that I was really

Senior Rugby Te
Square Off To
Action will be the keynote today when the Varsity and
UBC teams meet in their yearly rugger classic at the stadium.
Game is scheduled for 4 o'clock and fans are guaranteed
•a slam bang performance come rain or shine.
Though UBC have been winless in ®	
their first  two starts they  are  expected to provide adequate opposition
to the highly rated Varsity squad.
Their improvement was demonstrated by their score last Saturday.
Although they took a 12-3 beating, it
was a far cry from the 34-8 massacre
of the preceeding week.
The team has been reshaped and
several of last years stalwarts have
returned, Hank Sweatman among
The three line of the junior team
will feature McKenzie and Powell as
wings, Hind-Smith and Kennedy, in-
fiides, D'Easum, scrum half and Whel-
ler fullback. Scrum: McDonald, Shaw
end Boulter, front row, Sweatman
and Wallace, second row, and Dixon,
Goodwin and Shaw in the third row
Varsity will field their usual powerful team, with Jock Ferry returning
to his customary place in the scrum,
after a leg Injury from last week.
Coach Al Laithwaite was pessimistic in his outlook for the junior squad
this year. He stated that there were
far too many students eligible for
rugby but not turning out'. "There is
no reason why Varsity and UBC
should not be rated as teams of equal strength," he stated. ,
The Vafsity crew which has been
successful in both starts this year,
has been given all of the talent, leaving UBC to scavange what it may
among the mass of green talent.
This system has not entirely been
successful, and although a fair second team has been thrown together.
most of the players hardly know one
another and are at a great disadvantage.
Laithwaite is of the opinion that
Varsity will undoubtedly win. However, he says he is dreaming of the
day when he can get together a UBC
squad that will rival that of the
Varsity. <*
Swim  Hopefuls
Will Vie For
Aqua Honors
University swimming championships will be held on or
about November 20, .according
to splash coach Doug Whittle.
The main purpose of these championships will be to establish, records
for future students to "shoot at."
There will be ten events open to
UBC's male aquatic enthusiasts.
These events will include l.ree style
races from 50 to 440 yards backstroke
and breaststroke competitions and a
100 yard butterfly breast stroke race,
For those individuals who are capable of going through contortions in
mid-air there will be a fancy diving
Four events have so far been
planned for i'he ladies—50 and 100
freestyle, 30 yard backstroke and
breaststroke laces.
There will also be a demonstration
by the UBC Ornamental Swimming
Coach Doug Whittle hopes that he
will be able to import junior relay
teams   from   other   swimming   clubs.
Among i'he outstanding performers
in the male events will be Jack Creedon, Nick Stobbart. Fred Oxonbury,
Andy Anderson, Bob Stanffroom, Bob
Thistle  and  George  Knight.
At preset the female participants
are of an unknown quantity, but it
is thought' that there is at least one
Olympic contender  on  the campus.
Entry application forms may bc obtained any time after October 26 at
the Physical Education Office in, the
Second Soccer XI
Formed On Campus
Another team will wear blue
and gold colors in downtown
soccer circles if present plans
for a campus intermediate entry succeed.
Alf Blanshill is managing the new
club, and the coaching duties will be
handled by Ivan Carr, former coast
Leaguer and Varsity star, who is at
present aiding Dr. Davies in coaching the senior eleven.
A meeting of all present and prospective players has been called for
Thursday in the south end of the
Stadium. No one who is interested in
soccer should fail to attend.
Big Block Members
Feast At P.A. Club
The club's secretary Stan
Clark, promises four hours of
entertainment unexcelled by
any previous Big Block function.
Big Block members, old and new,
will get together once again on
October 28 for the annual Big Block

A MULTITUDE of track enthusiasts like the one pictured above will line up again this year
for the annual Intramural cross-country race. The cindermen will cover a grueling 2.6 miles
during the course of the run which will be staged at noon hour two weeks from today.
Annual Cinder
The annual cross-country
run, fall classic of the intermural program, will be held
two weeks from today, Wednesday, November 3rd at 12:30
The Legionnaires, who walked off
with the honors last year, have throe
of their last years team returning and
will .start as favorites.
Eill Husband, defending champion,
ha.s been burning up thc track for
the past month and in rounding into
tcp form. Two week ago he turned in
a two mile time trial well under
eleven minutes.
Sundberg and Porter third and fifth
last year, are the other holdovers
from last year's champions who defeated Kappa Sigma 25 points to 76
with Aggies in third spot with  137.
Kappa Sigs will field the best-balanced team in thc race but their
chances will be reduced by the new
ruling which reduced the number of
necessary finishers from five to- four.
Dark horse entrants in the race will
be a team from Cauliflower Alley,
entered by the boxing club and a
learn from the Track, Field and Cross
Country   Club,
With   many    promising   newcomers
r. hand the race will be a wide open
ere. A.s thi.s is strictly a team contest
ihe fortunes of any one favorite will
have relatively little bearing on his
team's  chances.
The  final   placings  will  depend  on
here i'he fourth man on the team
I niahoa   rather   than   where   the   first
i ,n   comes   in.   This   race   will   also
i-jvide some  indication of  th; sc-  hieo-
v  t,) represent the univ rsity  in cross
( untry this fall.
The intermural committee have re-
\ ised the rules for this year's race t'o
■"i mil   a   team   with   only   four   men
mi.shing  to  score  points as a  group.
Last   year   only   eleven   teams   fin -
lied out of eighteen entrants although
three more teams had four men cross
Ihe finish line. *
Each team will consist of six men
with the best four counting for team
points. If a group wishes to enter two
teams six men must be declared as
running on the "A" team before the
race starts. Entries will close Friday,
October 29.
All cross-country team members,
milers ;-nd fwo-miler.s from the
Thunderbird Track Teatri will lie ineligible. Bob Piercy, Al Bain and Oil
''-Hair will be the only runners eligible

lylfitude Of New Talent
Boosts Hockey Hopes
Frank Frederickson, UBC's hockey mentor, is happy today
and the reason for his elation is found in the multitude of
promising player material that he has on hand for the coming
The truth of the matter is that the<S>
newcomers lo the campus are stealing
the show.
No less than three ex-Camrose
Maroons  were   on   hand   at   the  last
Tiihuderbird  practice.
Tough Ken Ilodgct, a regular with
Winnipeg Monarchs last year, will
probably fill the gap in the defense,
while between the pipes Ken Tor-
rer.ee has been stopping the rubber
cooly  and  oapably.
Many other new hopefuls, with
talent to burn, are now being watched closely by Coach Frederickson,
and his t§sk of choosing the team is
a tough one.
Holdovers from the 1947 club are
hound to be sure starters this year
judging by their performances in the
early practices. Haas Young seemed
the most impressive to the rink.sidc
critics, while Bob Keck and Bil!
Wagner are heading toward their best
season yet.

With their first big^

a  few days,  the Thiifc
basketball team is fast rv
top physical condition.
This Friday and Saturday therdV
are scheduled to meet a po^1
hoop aggregation from Port A\\
in the Island City.
The team which will travel v
the water to do battle with tht
bernians has not been announced -lii
but  will  probably  include  Bill Bell

are returning from last year's squad.J
Whetther or not Head Basketball
coach Jack Pomfret will make the
trip with his charges is still not
known. However, it is believed that
wilh the American football seasor^
still in full swing, Pomfret may remain on the campus to fulfill hif'
duties as Assistant Football Coach
when the Birds meet the Whitmai
College Missionaries in the UBC stad
ium this Saturday.
Trend of training for the Bird hope
fuls is still on the high speed dril.
and    tough    conditioning    process*.
that they were suffering through thej
last few weeks.
Now there is a slight accent on th*.
style of play that they are to utilize
in the season to come. Emphasis on
snappy, driving, "heads-up" basketball is being pushed on the boys
more and more.
The line-up for the Birds which
will be picked form the twenty odd
types turning out at present may not
be any indication of the final choice
of the Bird team to compete in Conference  play  this season.
Actually it may be a test to see hov ,
the men play together and react t'
the pressure of high speed basket]
The standing from the team at Porj
Alberni is one big question mark l(
the whole set-up.
