Engineers Shy
From Beer Duel
Engineers may sing of beers,
but they haven't, yet f°und a
worthy who can drink forty.
That in limping rhyme, is the situation as it existed at press time last
night in regard to the challenge
hurled Tuesday by Les Bewley, Daily
Ubyssey columnst,  to the Engineers.
Bewley said that he doubted that
any Engineer could drink thc forty
beers, which the old redshirt war cry
insists is possible, and offered to provide any Engineer chosen by that
faculty with enough ale to make that
boast good,
Up to press time, no communication
had been redeived by the Daily Ubyssey from either EUS or individual
engineering students.
*%., "frJPJi ULgUEyffiPfr" commented Bew;_
ley when informed no engineer had
put  in an appearance.
"They have been getting away with
this hollow boast for the last quarter
century and probably won't try to
make it good now. It's impressive to
the freshmen anyway."
But the offer,  he says,  still  stands.

turn to the campus to see how the present
day administration and student body are
carrying on the fine traditions they set.
They will probably be satisfied with what
they see. Those whose academic careers go
back to thc lale twenties and early thirties
will view with considerable pride that UBC
football teams are now at least holding their
own against American opposition.
For those who made the Trek the sight of
beautiful lawns and fine buildings on what
was once bushland will fill them with an inward glow of satisfaction for a job well completed.
For all the grads there will probaby be a
sort of awe when they behold the completed

to remind us of our part in the march of UBC

Being of a philosophical mind, end

nay place in line the other day to receive my AMS photo with the firm
intention  to face the thing squarely.
If it was me in the picture, it was
me and that's all there was to it, Just
because it was taken in a hurry, I
hadn't had a chance to comb my
hair, I hadn't shaved, I was tired from
three hcurs cf registration and a few
leftover beach parties, I wasn't going
to make excuses.
After waiting in line for seventeen hours, I approached thc distribution table with an open mind. Look
at all those foolish mortals hiding
their pictures from their inquiring
frieds. Callow adolescents! Lock at
them squirming, concerned only witlh
their appearance, unable to face a

forward glancing scornfully at mv
miserable fellows.

"Could lips but those of a 4th year

I could see by the expression on the
person's face that my words were
lost to him. Pearls before Sciencemen.
"Let me see your card," said the

that was fine and good, I handed him

the required ducat with a scome-

"Here's your mug shot, Falstaff,
and it cughln have a number under

of a fair damsel.

I looked bitterly at the fellow.
"There seem's to bc seme mistake,

stamped on the back."
"You're holding up tlie line, meat-
head," said the man behind the desk,
"Seme people arc never sntis.'ied."
For the third time the bumbling
fool handed me the wrong picture.
It was the likeness of some ghastly

"Wrong again," I said flippantly,
casting a knowing smile to those behind me.
"Look, flybrain, it's got your number on it. it's your pan and if you
don't get the hell out of here I'll fix
it so that no photographer will risk

Not pausing to discuss the matter
further with the uneducated clod, I
tucked the print in my wallet and
hurried away.
Hey, Barnes," shouted one cf my
contemporaries, "Let's see your picture."
"Aw, it doesn't look a bit' like me."
There's no sense in trying to show

OTTAWA, Onl. (CUP)—Scandal reared its ugly head
in the direction of Carleton College Student Council president Doug Hartle at a meeting of the council last week.
When the treasurer read, 'silk stockings, 99c," the
whole room exploded in a roar of laughter.
Hartle leapt to his feet with, "I thought I told you to
say '2 feet of hose'!", then started shouting "I can explain!"
He got his chance to explain. Holding up an old, tattered stocking, he finally convinced a skeptical council that
they had been used to strain paint for a spray gun—cheesecloth was unobtainable.

After four years of operating in
a makeshift manner, hockey has
finally come of age on the campus.
The past four seasons have been
mediocre at best and merely an
organizational phase. This season
however, things are going to be
different. Something new has been
added to this colorful sport.
The first new feature is the class
of competition which the Thunderbirds must face. The league has
discarded the deadwood commercial teams which were a farce to
Senior Hockey.
The second reason, also within
league play, stems from the fact
that the Coast Senior League has
turned professionally officially.
TWa makes the Senior "B" League
the only beneficiary of coast players of less than "pro" calibre and
many who do not wish to turn
The third reason for hockey's
"rtew look" is the new financial
set-up which is designed to make
money for the various teams.
To turn inter-collegiate hockey,
also on UBC's schedule, the practice of scholarships for hockey in
Amerelcan colleges ha simproved
their standards immensely and as
such are a definite threat to any
strong Canadian team.
Player Material
UBC has many new features to
bestow on its hockey organization.
Thu first and most obvious is the
enormous amunt of excellent player material enrolled here.
Tlie second new feature is the
spirit rampant amongst players
and fans. The last mentioned feature ia the most important.
This is due to the appeal a
strong contender has to campus
fans. By the same token it has
been well established that UBC's
hockey squad is enormously popular  with  Island and  American
Sidetracking from the general
topic it might be of interest to
look into another new feature of
this year's hockey squad. It has
to do with the number of married players on thee UBC roster.
The newly-weds are the most enthusiastic and areln the best shape!
Big Time'
Frank Frederickson mused on
this point so that when he broke
into "big-time" hockey he was
given a two year contract.
He married after one year, causing his coach to remark he wished
it had been a one year contract.
As history proves, Frank went on
to become a hockey immortal and
a boon to hockey.
It is highly probable that 1948
Will mark die beginning of a ne*
era of hockey competition at UBC.
The appeal is here, all that is
wanting now is competition and
success worthy of UBC.
The hockey team will bring new
honors to Varsity. The need is for
student support to show clearly
that UBC is ready for Canadian
uid American Inter-Collegiate competition.
On the shoulders of this year's
squad and UBC students rests
the burden. Notning less than
large financial gain and phenom-
inal success within the leage will
put hockey where it rightfully belongs, at the forefront of collegiate
The most enthusiastic supporter
of the squad is Frank Frederick-
son who is working $fnd planning
for a great future f6r hockey and
for UBC.

dance is to be the big AMS
function of the* year.
There will be no Junior-Senior Prom, no Arts Ball and no

The committee has planned a dance
which will put all other Homecoming
dances to shame.
The admission price of $2.50 a
couple includes food. There will be
250 tables set up and no previous reservations. This will avoid the reservation confusion that resulted at last
year's Fall Ball.
A floor show including Indian dancing girls from Patricia Doyle's dancing school has been arranged.
Homecoming Princess, Patsy Jordan
will be presented with a miniature

degree, intends to return to his native
country to work with his family on
their coffee and hemp plantation, Luis
in pre-med, wishes to be a eye specialist. He states that in Costa Rica
there are only five of six doctors
who specialize in this field.
Instilled with a tradition of 'old
world' courtesy, Gorgi and Luis find
the apparent disregard for the little
niceties of concern for the weaker
sex at least unusual.
In Costa Rica, women are women
and all skilled in the art of the 'come
hither' look and the downcast glance.
However, the two students agree
that having cometfrom a country
where a man has to take along his
date's mother to a party and where
a man and a woman alone together
in a car provokes the raised eyebrow,
the straight forward independance
of Canadians is agreeable.
All in all, the two Costa Rican boys
are happy with their new surroundings. Except for missing the warmth
in the sun, the dance music and the
women, they are rapidly adopting
thc customs of their adopted country.
Even to the extent where they remain seated in the bus now when a
pretty co-ed gets on and has to stand.

McGill Tories Gain
Control Of Labour Club
Montreal, Oct. 27 (CUP) In a surprise move at McGill University yesterday, members of the Progressive Conservative
Club wrested control of the Student Labor Club from LPP

When LPP members saw them they

and walked out.
The Progressive Conservatives hold
their own elections for club executive
LPP club members are thinking of
contesting the elections on the ground
that they did not know who the in- f the PCs will take over the LPP Club
To this a Conservative replied, ''Intruders were,

From tne sidelines, a member of
the Liberal Club cracked, "What are

conferred on seven Canadians and one
American. Those were:
Mr. Ira Dilworth. author and, critic
and International Director of CBC;
Miss Jessie Fisher Gordon, founder of
Crofton House School for Girls in 1898
and a leading educationist here; Col-
nel Francis Fairey. Deputy Minister
of Education for B.C.; Alexander Rus-
sel Lord, President of Canadian Education Association; John Bennett de-
Long, retired Provincial Inspector of
Schools; Dr. William Stewart Wallace,
author and historian and librarian at
University of Toronto; Dr. William
Kaye Lamb, UBC Librarian; and Dr.
Luther Evans, U.S. Librarian of Congress,
The Convocation address was made
by Ira Dilworth, General Supervisor
of CBC International Service.
In his moving address, Mr. Dilworth
called for more "humanism."
He said that the modem sense of
values is "confused", and suggested
the university lead in establishing a
better sense of faith and centrality of
purpose in students.
He also decried the fact that humility seems to be "out of fashion" in
the modern world.
Part of the blame for this he placed
on increasing specialization in education.
He commented also on the increase
of the -misuse of psychology to excuse
.our actions.
His conclusion summed up by suggesting that people cultivate the qualities of courage, concientiousness, tenderness and humility.
Eric W. Hamber, Chancellor of the
University, spoke briefly on tlie prob
lems which face the university, particularly in relation to expansion in
order to handle the large enrolment
and increase in courses.
He is optimistic that the University
will receive the support it will need
in the future.
The Doctorates of Law, honoris
causa, were conferred with the following citations:

One of our brighter slaff member.; has
come forth with a Callup poll idea thai .should
be a sensation. lie .suggests thai we ask a
couple of hundred students in the cafeteria if
they know the meaning of tlie initials USC.
The answers would probably make1, an extremely funny story. But if would also make
60 people on tho campus very unhappy, the
60 people who form the Undergraduate Society Committee. Their hard work during the
last few years has amounted to a spectacular
rise to obscurity. Despite the efforts of its
members, thousands of students have yet to
hear of the Undergraduate Societies Committee. .
Student Councils have made a habit of saying rather unkind things about USC, and this
year is no exception.
Treasurer Paul Plant told councillors the
other night that he considered USC "just a
waste of time."
"With the exception of the blood drive,"
he said, "USC hits done absolutely nothin.";
this year."
Plant is right, and so are the dozen:; of other
people who have complained that USC has a
fine constitution and an energetic membership but just doesn't seem  to  gel  anything;
embers Of USC
The committee, which consists of repre-
senlalives from all faculties on the campus,
has spent two years of earnest discusion in an
allcmpl to discover just what they should be
So far, they don't seem lo have found out.
Sludent President Dave Brousson .suggests
he would be willing lo hold joint meetings
rrf council and tho undergraduate representatives.
What, might he accomplished by bringing
in (i0 persons to do the work now done by 11
is hard to say but the plan might occupy
those spare noon hours USC is now spending
in laborious discussion of its own duties.
It is difficult to tell GO enthusiastic students
that their work i.s to no avail. Any honest
member of the Undergraduates Societies
Commilteo, however, will admit that his
group has planned and executed a successful
blood drive this year, and that's about all.
USC must get its marching orders now if
it is lo earn its keep, either as a sounding
hoard for student opinion and advisor to
Student Council, or as work corps as it was
with Ihe blood drive.

These students will return to Germany after one year of study at a
Canadian university and then take
posilions where the knowledge they
have accumulated may be disseminated to the greatest advantage.
As it is known the UBC board of
governors put their stamp of approval
(with commendation) on the idea proposed by Cliff Greer and Greg Belkov. Tho money collected will supply
5. not 4 scholarships as was originally
planned,. It; is hoped that university
administrations across Canada will
co-operate and aid in this work by
waiving Tuition fees.
The Canadian Committee for Reconstruction through UNESCO will bc
asked to provide 70 scholarships of a
value of $1,800 each to be used to
bring German students to Canada on
tho same basis as that proposed by
Greer and Belkov.
It is further expected that CCR will
be asked to contribute an additional
BO scholarships at a cost of $144,000
for   countries   ether   than   Germany.

Thursday,  October 28, 1948
Any lingering doubts which i'he
Thunderbird Cross-Country team
had about competition south of
the border were quickly dispelled
recently by a communication from
the  University   of  Idaho.
After winning four straight
Pacific Coast Intercollegiate Cross
Country Championships from 194.'!
to 1946, the Thunderbirds discovered last fall that this race was
no longer being held. Washington
dropped out of competition all together. Some competition centered
in the south-eastern corner of
Washington   and   adjacent   Idaho.
A race was arranged with the
University of Idaho to take place
in November. This race did not
materialize when the Idaho team
developed sore legs (or cold feet)
in a race the previous weekend.
However, they said they would
write UBC at the beginning of the
1948 season. A very terse note was
received in reply to a query stating that they were only carrying
on light training, terminating in a
dual meet with Washington State.
Neither Washington State nor
themselves were interested in any
further competition and they
were not even magnanimous enough to invite the Thunderbirds
to compete in their meet.
It was quite evident that none
of the Pacific Coast' Conference
Universitities were in the least interested in competing with the
Thunderbird  Cross-Country  team.
They had nothing to gain and
everything to lose,
UBC was in a junior conference and in addition was a Canadian university. Defeat at the
hands of the Thunderbirds might
be difficult to explain. In other
sports where they have some
reason to believe that they hold
the upper hand and where there
are substantial benefits from the
box office to be gained they will
continue to arrange contests with
Thunderbird teams.
However the Cress-Country
team will have to reconcile themselves to the fact that they have
been too successful and have won
too often which is a great mistake
when win hungry institutions are
Another factor in the situation
is that cross-country running was
not as well established on the Pacific Coast as it was in the Eastern States. The succession of UBC
victories killed off the re-birth of
this sport before it was permanently established.
The reticence of Washington
State to compete is very hard to
understand when one looks at
their roster. They have two Olympic 1500 metre men, Parnell, Canada, Eischen, U.S.A.; Paelh, an
Olympic trials contender in the
American 1500 metres and the Pacific Coast Conference two mile
champion plus other prominent
milers and two milers from their
track squad.
UBC is sponsoring the Pacific
North-West Cross-Country championships until a permanent sponsor is found. This race is open to
both college and club runners and
it is hoped that American entries
in this event will continue to increase from year to year. It will
provide much needed competition
for   the  Thunderbirds.

Dangerous threat to the Bird gridders this Saturday will

Sparks Visiting Coyotes
Out to regain a little prestige after suffering a humiliating
47-13 set-back in the hands of the College of Idaho's Coyotes last
season, UBC's fast-improving Thunderbirds get their chance
when they meet Clem Parberry's squad in Saturday's gridfest.

suit of discussions held on the SS
"Aquitania" concerning the crosscountry situation in B.C. in particular and Canada in general. Competition south of the border was non-existent in 1947 and it' was felt that if
nothing was done to provide competition in Vancouver the great interest shown by UBC over the past five
years would be lost.
The great emphasis placed on crosscountry running in England and the
rest of Europe had contributed materially to their prominence at the Olympic Games and an increase in interest
and participation in this sport in
Canada was essential if we were to
develop men who could hold their
own in the five and ten thousand
The championships will be divided
into two divisions, senior and junior.
Juniors must have attained their
sixteenth birthday and must be under
nineteen on the day of the race. Entry
forms are being sent to schools and
clubs throughout the province and
to universities, colleges and schools
south of the border.
Individual   challenge   trophies   for
each event have been donated in addition to a team trophy for the senior
I race.   There  will  be  five   individual
prizes for each division.
Teams will consist of four to seven
men with the first four counting in
the team standings. Individual entries
will bc accepted and it is not necessary for any group to enter a team.
Final selection of the course depends on securing permission to use
part of the University Golf Course.
The senior race will be approximately four miles long and the junior race
about two and a half.
Both races will start and finish ir
the stadium with a lap of the track
A hurdle race and a sprint will be
run off in the stadium between thc
start and finish of the races while
the athletes are out on the course.

Goal Of
Soccer XI
Varsity, Norquay
Meet On Campus
First place in the Vancouver
and District Soccer league is
the prize that will be dangling
before Varsity and Norquay
roundballers when they meet
on the campus Saturday.
Norquay is the only club that
moved up from second division to
first division company this season.
Terrors of the second division last
year, they have so far shown even
less respect for their opponents in
the upper bracket.
Varsity and Norquay have similarly
parallel records in league play up to
now. Both scored six goals on South
Hill ,beat North Burnaby, and tied
Raniers. Norquay got the edge by
winning from Collingwood while the
Collies held Varsity to a draw.
Center Don Gleig will probably be
used as a spare Saturday, to give his
injured ribs a chance to heal. There
is a chance that big Dave Thompson
may be lured back into action, or
failing that, fullback Jack Cowan
may move up to pivot the forward
Thompson was a regular with Vanity last year, but has not seen any
play so far this season.
Coach Ivan Carr aends his UBC
eleven against Legion 148 in an intermediate fixture on the campus
Sunday. With enough prospective
players now on hand to form a complete team, Ivan predicts that he will
produce a winning combinatinon in
the next few games.
UBC dropped their first two start*
but didn't have enough men to field
a complete line-up.
