Too many encores and you go to jail.
At least that's \yhat Gonzaga University's radio quartet
found out.
At the annual Northwest Radio Conference Gonzanga's
quartet proved too popular. Spokane police felt their repeated encores were disturbing the city's sedate citizens
and gave the quartet a fitting tribute for its efforts—a ticket.

AMS Still Stuck
With Stock Stacks
The AMS is still wondering
what to do with its large stock
of sweaters, records, pejinants,
and crests.
Sweaters representing five faculties
are piled up in the AMS stockroom.
They represent nearly $8000 of the
council's $13,000 worth of merchandise.
At the beginning of the term tthere
was some $17,000 worth of merchandise but about $4000 worth of this
was disposed of by the now defunct
"Campus Shop."
The 1500 seemingly unwanted sweaters are now being 'offered to students
of city high schools.
New Look
Takes Beating
In U Forum
The New Look came in for
severe criticism today at University Radio Forum.
Phil Brocking severely criticized
women who "compete with one another to get a longer skirt, a coat
longer than a longer skirt, and then a
coat shorter than tho longer skirt,"
while women in Europe with "cold
knees and ankles" could profitably
use an extra length skirt.
Brocking maintained that aid to
Europe i.s the moral responsibility
of  North  Americans.
Dr. Joseph Crumb, Economics Professor, was moderator and Ian Davidson, the other speaker on the panel
discussion which was transcribed in
the Brock Lounge for broadcast over
CJOR at 5:30  p.m.  Sunday,
Ian Davidson, just returned from a
only to the countries which helped
visit to Europe, favored giving aid
themselves. He advocated a union of
the European countries along with a
spiritual rebirth.
Dr. Crumb, in his preliminary remarks pointed out to the tax burden
that thi.s continent is being subjected
to and questioned whether the burden
was justified in view of the fact, that
the Europe's troubles go from "bad
Vo worse."

Will Bring Peace
Special To The Daily Ubyasey
Several hundred students
turned out at Massey Hall, University of Toronto, to hear
"Red" Dean Hewlitt Johnson,
Tuesday night—but only a
handful heard him.
University of Toronto has no large
auditorium so loudspeakers were attached to the various rooms of the
building. Students filed in and packed
the building but as the minutea wore
on they grew more and- more tense,
nothing came over ihe speakers.
Student "whites" had cut the wires.
Dean Johnson told the handful of
students in the room where he was
speaking that he had every hope for
peace and that talks would ultimately
begin on the basis of the six points
outlined by Henry Wallace, defeated
Progressive Party nominee for the
U.S. presidency.
Blood Quota
Reached By
Students have bled to the extent
of the prescribed 2000 pints, Red Cross
officials  announced  oday,
Although the registered quota was
not reached, the deficit was made up
by those who donated but did not
register and the desired amount of
blood was collected.
Officials expressed thanks to all
those who had given their time and
blood to make the campaign a success.

Will Yoy Remember
Tomorrow is Remembrance Day,
Branch 72, Canadian Legion, representing over 1400 student veteran members, will
join with representatives from the faculty,
old 196th (University) Battalion, in a short
Board of Governors and members of the
but colorful Remembrance Day ceremony,
tomorrow morning.
But will you remember, too?
Will you remember those lads who fell—
long ago and far away, now—in the First
Great War?
And will you remember your friends and
brothers who died—only yesterday, it seems
—in World War II?
The men and women who assemble together in front of Brock Hall tomorrow
morning will remember.
While   they   keep   in   their   hearts   the
memory of those other faces, those other
voices, those other days, the dear dead will
never be beyond recall. They will be remembered; for there is no grave deeper
or more sheltered than the human heart.
The Legion extends to all who live in
the university area—and to all others—an
invitation to attend tomorrow's ceremony.
We hope that those of us, who by God's
grace have been spared to be present here
today, will find the two brief moments of
time to dedicate to, and to thank God for,
men such as tho.se whom we honor tomorrow.
And when, at 11 a.m., the thin, silver
notes of the bugle sound out over this campus,
out over our own small, quiet world, out to
these limits whose reaches are marked only
where there are no ears to hear, and no hearts
to remember, we hope you will be there.

Eyesore On The Main Mall
There's a little bit of the huckster in tho
best of us it seems, judging from the enthusiasm of student councillors who this week
began to plan for a huge signboard to be
stuck in the middle of the Main Mall boulevard.
Councillors want to advertise symphony
concerts and speakers on a "headline" billboard perhaps 10 or 15 feet in height.
It would be a socft-em-in-tho-eye advertising medium all right, you need only
travel the King George Highway to see that.
But the planners of the university, the men
who landscaped the lawns and ornamental
gardens, who cleared bushland to reveal the
panorama of Howe Sound, definitely did not
count on a crass Yankee billboard plunked
in the centre of their private paradise.
Builders of the university laid power
cables underground to avoid some of the
necessary eyesores of modern living. A billboard doesn't seem to fall into this category,
especially when built at the very focal point
of the campus.
Treasurer Paul Plant happily suggests
the billboard should be of collegiate gothic
design so as to blend with buildings on the
campus. We'll throw the problem of finding
a "collegiate gothic" billboard to the department of architecture, meanwhile we'll just
continue to drink in what seems to be the
last remaining drops of scenic beauty.

Birney s Great Brainwave Brings
Revitalized A A lo UBC Campus
Fledgling writers on the campus
may now have a chance t'o try
their literary wings. Authors anonymous was recently installed as
a Minor Club under the Alma
Mater Society.
No relation to another association of the same initials, the literary group was formed two years
ago for the mutual benefit of
members interested in creative
writing  and  criticism.
Authors   anonymous   was   born
from an enthusiastic nucleus of
Dr. Earle Birney's English 401
class in creative writing. Since
then, it has met regularly in the
homes of its members.
Dr. Birney is honorary pesident
of the club, and it can boast at
least, one illustious graduate, Eric
Nicol, author of Sense and Nonsense, who gave the club its name.
Three more of its graduates are
holding  fellowships  and   studying
creative   writing   at   the  graduate
school of the University of Iowa.

An exclusive interview with
hockey Immortal, Frank Fredrick-
son, in which he answers a number of pertinent hockey questions,
gives us (he best qualified opinion
to be had on this subject,
With reference to the UBC team
compared with other college teams,
Frank has this to say: "The UBC
hockey team of last year and the
tionably hold it's own- in any college league, providing they had
similar facilities in the way of
practice hours and conditioning.
Last season's exhibition games
againt the Colleges of California
and Colorado confirm my opinion."
When asked about the class of
this Senior Amateur League,
Frank stated: "The calib>re of
hockey in the Senior League is of_
a very high standard. The competition this year will be keener
than ever in view of the general
Strengthening of all the teams,
Our University team will feel the
loss of Hugh Berry who was a going concern. However we have
more strength, generally speaking,
than we had last year. The indication of the calibre of hockey
played in this league can be garnered from the reputation Norm
Kirk is getting as a "Pro" with the
Royal City entry in the Coast
League. Last year he was one of
the better players in the Senior
League, but there were many more
such as Bobby Koch (pronounced
Cook), Haas Young, Wag Wagner
and Fred Andrew, all of UBC."
Frank felt that "Nananimo, Ne'"
Westmister and Vancouver Indians
are all stronger than their last
season's counterpart. UBC has improved proportionately. The battle
for league laurels will be close
and there will be thrills in store
for the University student-body
as well as for thouands of hockey
lovers who cannot afford the high
prices charged for "Pro" hockey."
On the question of a Canadian
inter-collegiate championship playoff our Coach corroborated a downtown paper's remarks. "It is my
candid opinion that we would
compare favorably with any of the
crack eastern college teams. However, if such a series were arranged I would like to have at
leat two solid weeks of practice to
whip the boys into top shape and
to perfect their team play."
Limitations imposed on hockey
drew Frank's ire, "The lack o£
ice for hockey practice, to my
mind, is tantamount to tragedy,
In every form of sport, practice is
essential in the perfection of team
play. In hockey particularly it is
virtually impossible to develop and
condition a team without actual
practice on the ice in order to
perfect timing and pattern plays."
The best hockey team to ever
represent this University will be
unveiled tonight when UBC take
on the powerful Indians who have
