* Airborne'
Here Friday
Features Chorus
And Orchestra
The Airborne Symphony featuring a UBC chorus will give
a preview performance for the
University on Friday noon in
the Armory.
The Friday concert conducted by
Jacques Singer will be complete with
the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra,
assisted by a 100 voice choir of university students, well-known soloists
and a narrator.
It will be free to university students
as it is a special feature presented
by the Special Events Committee in
addition to the regular university
concert series.
The Airborne, a contemporary
work written by Marx Blitzstein, will
make its Canadian premiere at the
Orpheum theatre in one of the regular subscription series concerts given
by the Vancouver Symphony orchestra on Sunday, November 30.
The Armory will be closed for
two hours before the noon hour
concert on Friday to allow for a
rehearsal of the chorus.
The concert on Sunday and the
preview on Friday at the University
is expected to be a "powerful climax"
to Symphony Week according to a
member of the Vancouver Symphony
New Thunderbird
Deadline Dec. 16
Completely selling out their first
issue this year's Thunderbird staff is
already at work planning a January
number to meet new student demand.
New deadline for the quarterly is
December 16.
"Contents of the November issue will
give potential contributors an idea
of what we want," Editor John Wardroper said.
"We would be interested in seeing
more contributions from the non-
veteran half of the student body," he.
added, pointing out that 16 of the 18
writers represented were veterans,
and the other two were women.

A HINT IN TIME saves BAC's and atlhough the lack of formal
Christmas examination this year may lessen the number of
those famed "Bounced at Christmas" degrees, Marg Hodgson
is behind the sundial to remind UBC students that "it's later
than you think." Just 21 days before the end of lectures and 30
days till Christmas, in fact.

UBC Inaugurates
New Slavonic Club
A new club on the campus is the
Russian Circle, an organization to
supplement Slavonic courses at UBC
by conversation, reading and singing in the Russian language and to
promote interest in literature, music,
history and all phases of Russian
life of a non-political nature,
Works to be heard include The
Euryanthe Overture by Weber and
Schubert's Unfinished Symphony. A
group of Christmas carols will also
be played in the pre-holiday performance.
The orchestra, composed of 50 members, rehearses each Thursday at 5
p.m. and all members kept away by
the tram strike have been urged by
President Dave Morton to turn out
thi.s week. ;
Morton   pointed   out   that  the  con- ;
cert was only a few weeks away and
that  full turn outs at rehearsal  was
important. Now that the tram  strike
is over rehearsal schedules  will  re-;
sume. He stated that the reed section !
of   the   orchestra   was   still   r    little i
weak and  th?l   new members  would
be  very  welcome  at  tomorrow's   rehearsal, i

Two Pix Stolen
Three pictures of a purely COTC
nature have been stolen from the
Armory, stated COTC officer's, yesterday.
The picture, formerly hanging in
the stairway leading to the officers'
mess, where first missed after the
Fall Ball. They could be of no possible interest to the pilferer, said contingent members.
Any information as to the whereabouts of these itmes would be
appreciated by the Corps.
Student Veterons
Lead in Food Drive
More than one-third of the collection in last week's "Food-for-Britain
drive" came from student-veterans at
Fort and Acadia camps.
A total of $194,13 cents was collected
by the UBC Canadian Legion to send
food overseas as a wedding gift for
Princess Elizabeth, Helen Noel, drive
chairman, reports,
box office and in Brock Hall during
noon hour. After today, the book will
be on sale in the AMS office.
Copies will be given out on presentation of receipts obtained during
registration. For those who have no
receipts, the price is twenty-five cents.
The directory contains names, addresses and telephone numbers of all
students at UBC, and includes a
campus classified section.
Poverty Ho Cure
For Europe-MP
A peaceful and stable world is impossible if the victorious powers keep
Germany and Japan in a state of
p:veity. This was the comment of
Angus Mclnnes, M.P. in an address
te> the United Nations forum Tuesday.
"We must rehabilitate them and
make them prosperous then we must
see that they keep the peace," he
Referring to the apparent lack i 'i
progress in the United Nations he
stated, "we were in too much of a
hurry to get our affairs back to
normal. We should have continued
war ccntrols until we had reestablished tho countries destroyed by the
He believed that tho United Nation's
had two main functions. Firstly to
develop a means for the putting down
of war and aggression. Secondly to
promote economic and social cooperation among the various nations.
If this is done he said there will be
little recourse to force.
Gym Students To Mold
Brock Dance Saturday
UBC's Gym Club and physical education students will sponsor the
"High Bar Hop" in Brock Hall Saturday night.
The dance, with music by Frank
Nightingale and his orchestra, will
be held from 9 to 12 p.m. in the main
lounge. Tickets are available in the
AMS office.
Council members really got into a stew last night over
the question of their regular Council dinners-
Tired of daintily prepared pork chops and chicken
croquets au gratin the legislators petitioned the home
economics department for a policy designed along "more
homey and less economical" lines. They suggested large
portions of beef stew.
The menu last evening consisted of beef broth, beef
stew, ice cream de la boeuf, and tea. The councillors are
framing another petition.
Sophomore Engineers Ask
Return Of Formal Exams
Lady Luck seems to have a special
place in her heart of UBC commerce student Clive McQueen.
Last year, when McQueen was a
freshman, Lady Luck brought him
a raincoat in the Fall Ball raffle.
This year the Fall Ball brought
him a second prize ( a tie.
"I  hope  this  becomes  an   annual
occurence," McQueen says, but adds
wistfully,   "the  prizes seem  to  be
getting smaller every year."
Legion Polls1
Married Vets
Condition of married student
veterans on the campus who are
undergoing financial strain will
be determined by means of a
questionnaire to be distributed
this week by Branch 72 of the
Canadian Legion. I
Data obtained from the survey will
be forwarded to Ottawa to serve as J
"substantiation for the problem we
are confident exists," said Legion
President Perry Millar.
The questionnaire will be available in the Legion offices today and
officials there say it is of the "highest
importance" that student concerned I
pick up a form and fill it out. j
During the past week, Legion officials have interviewed the Minister
of Veterans Affairs and three British
Columbia members of parliament. All
requested more factual information m
the form of facts and statistics concerning the present conditions of
married student veterans with dependents,  said  the Legion.
Deadline for handing back the
questionnaires is Saturday noon.
Say No Christmas Exams
Has Caused Inconvenience'
Second year Engineering students at UBC will ask the
university to once again schedule formal Christmas examinations after the close of lectures. They complain of "inconvenience" caused by the cancellation of university-wide exams this
The sophomore Sciencemen say that
the plan adopted this year of no
formal exams has 'failed in its intent
and has caused considerable financial
inconvenience to the students of
second year applied science,"
They ask that the university "return to the previous system of formal
Christmas  exams."
The Engineers' Undergraduate society, which embraces Sciencemen of
all years, tabled the request from tlie
second year students at an executive
meeting Tuesday.
Class and club presidents in the
faculty will poll student opinion before the EUS considers action on the
Should  the proposal  be endorsed j Grant Livingstone and treasur-
by UBC Sciencemen  it will be pre- '

Plans, Problems
Three delegates will travel
to Winnipeg to attend the National Federation of Canadian
University Students conference
at Christmas. AMS President
Engineers say they understood from
UBC staff members that classes would
close on December 16 and that on that
basis many arranged for transportation out of town, and for jobs.
First and second year Sciencemen,
however, have now learned they will
be writing examinations up to December 19. r.r,me may lose CCnsidL'rable
money as a result, second year Engineering  o ficials  say.
'Thf University calendar puts ihe
term end date at  December 20.)
Engineers have also objected to a
"disrupton of study'1 caused by a
"constant stream of midterms."
er Bob Harwood will attend
accompanied by a third delegate who is still to be elected.
Discussion topics include the extension of present DVA benefits, the
establishment of a National Athletk
Union, and the proposal to affiliate
the NFCUS with the International
University Students at Prague.
NFCUS invites written recommendations on the above topics or any
others for discussion at this conference,- Livingstone  said.

Debate Ousts Food Plan
Bontre"al, Que., 26 Nov.— (CUP) —
McGilL University's debating team
were victorious last week in the first
inter-collegoate debate against Harvard University at Boston, upholding
the negative side of the resolution
that "implementation of the Marshall
Plan would further the interests of
world peace."
The McGill team of Isadore Rosem-
feld and Ted Hugessen received a
majority decision of 70-30 from the
William Green, first speaker for the
Harvard team, stressed the point (1)
that a sound European economy is
essential for world peace (2) that a
sound American economy is necessary
for world peace (3) that the United
States was the only nation capable
of providing a sound European economy. Green concluded that a sound
American economy which would come
from   the   marshall   Plan   is   "vitally
Isadore Rosenfeld, introducing the
argument for the negative, pointed
out that the resolution was worded
"implementation" of the Plan and
that the affirmation could prove their
point by proving that the Marshall
Plan could not fail. He went on to
show how such a failure would force
the European conutries to turn to
Russia, and how America would
emerge a poor and weaker country
as a result. This condition, he said,
would certainly not be conductive to
world peace.
Roy Clou9e, second affirmative
speaker argued that the original
Marshall Plan had also included Russia and in this way had reached some
degree of success,
The second speaker for McGill
stated emphatically that world peace
and "our world" are not synonymous,
He pointed out that while the Marshall Plan garanteed our world, H
did not garantee a universal peace.
He proceeded in an analysis of the
plan to show how, as a short tens
plan ending in 1951, European economy depended on a ready supply el
American dollars. He ended by showing that a termination of this American dollar supply would result in a
catastrophic breakdown of Europe's
economic stability.
Dr. Seymour Simches, of Harvard's
Department of Romance Languages,
gave an appraisal of the debate. He
stated that in the rebuttals the afiirro-
atve did not attack he negative side's
arguments sufficenently. He believed
that since the McGill team had not
required to give any alternative, they
had refuted the arguments of the
Boston debators effectively. PAGE 2

Canadian University student veterans are
evidentally nearing their goal of increased
Department of Veterans Affairs grants.
Certainly action already initiated, and
elaborate plans for future steps on the part
of the UBC branch No. 72 of the Canadian
Legion would indicate that the present agitation is no half-cocked, ill-founded camphizzle
of the type that has been breaking out sporadically since 1940.
These campaigns of the past have usually
involved a series of letters to MLA's and
cabinet ministers—little else.
The current legion request will likely
center around an effort to have the married
student allotment increased.
There can be no doubt that this is the
weak point in the DVA scheme, Married
students receive a base of $80 per month, $12
for the first two children, $10 for the next and
$8 for all subsequent.
There is an upper limit on the monthly
earnings allowed for a student's wife. If she
earns in excess of $75 per month her husband
loses his married student classification and
reverts to the single student scale of $60
It is of interest to notice that the minimum wage in B.C. is higher than $75 monthly.
This time the campus legion committee
is to be commended for their realistic handling of the matter.
They are speaking the language of facts
and figures — statistics — the only language
that a politician seems to understand.
The results of a survey conducted recently at Little Mountain camp are due to be
released shortly and should cast considerable
light on the basic question of the amount
of money required to support a wife and
family while the husband is attending university.
The legion has also sent out a request
that all married DVA students should come
into the Legion office to fill out a brief ques-
tionaire as part of their statistical approach.
It is the responsibility of every married
student at UBC under the DVA plan to extend every cooperation to the Legion committee. We must not allow student lethargy
to stand in the way of feeding and clothing
children of our ex-service students.
The Children's Hour
If you are a dreamy time-waster and a
ne'er-do-well, like your old uncle B., you will
occasionally find yourself at a party, jammed
behind a piano, holding an empty glass and a
dreadful suspicion that whoever is responsible for the appearance of more drink is in
the kitchen, saying savagely: "I tell you, it's
time to cut 'em off. Not another drop, I sayl"
This is a difficult situation. There is no
use trying to remedy it by holding your glass
upside down, above your head and banging
the bottom of the glass in an effort to show
that there isn't one teensy-weensy drop left.
Nor is there any use in holding the glass up
with two hands and sighing loudly.
In the first place, the host is far too busy
running around with a large brass key and
going through some silly, obscure business
that involves winding tip all the clocks in the
house, to notice you. In the second place, any
sigh you can produce, however heartfelt, will
not be heard above the general hubbub and
the specific hubbub produced by the man
playing the piano.
The only sensible thing to do, really, is
to march right up to the host and say: "Look
here, old man, how about another drink?"
Then when he says no and who invited you
here, anyway, you put your glass in your
pocket, get your hat and coat, announce in a
loud voice that a lot of people insist upon
holding parties who can't afford to carry them
off, and walk out, banging the door behind
But you won't do that, you know. You
will catch the piano-player's glazed eye and
say something bitter, like: "never miss the
water till the well's run dry, eh?" and then
watch him grin vacuously and nod, because
he thinks you're saying "keep up the good
work, eh?"
What you will do is turn around and find
a group of celebrants asking each other:
"What would YOU do if you could do anything in the world that you wanted?"
This happens at every party. There is
no point in introducing your empty glass
again when your turn comes to answer this
question. After all, it is a party, and bitterness
should not be encouraged.
We don't know what your dream is, but
we have two special answers to that question.
One is that we wished we owned an
electric-light bulb factory. When the plant
opened in the morning, we would have a
new time-clock just inside the employes' entrance, with a small sledge-hammer hanging
from a chain beside it. Employees who wished
to punch in would make they day brighter
by dealing the clock (man's natural enemy)
a stunning blow with the hammer. Your
uncle, meanwhile, would take up a lying-
prone position on the far side of the factory.
Equipped with a high-powered rifle, he would
amuse himself by picking off every thousandth bulb as it moved along on the conveyer
As he will probably never own a light-
bulb factory, and some dispirited bureaucrat
would probably issue a regulation prohibiting
the shattering of time clocks and the discharging of fire-arms, your uncle passes on
to his second wish:
It is this—that some spring morning,
before he dies, he is gently awakened by the
song of the Oregon Oriole, pouring in through
the air vent in his sleeping bag. Opening the
zipper from the inside, your uncle wants to
put his tousled head out ,take one long breath,
and find himself exactly where he wants to
be—in the Black Hills of South Dakota, opposite Mount Rushmore.
Then he wants to look away, far away
across the valley, to what he considers to be
the greatest monument to man ever erected—
the heads of Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln
and Teddy Roosevelt, carved, chiseled and
blasted out of the granite of Mount Rushmore
by that late, great individualist, Gutzon
And maybe, by that time, he will be able
to swivel hi seyes over a few degrees and
gloat upon another 300-ft. monument; the
wild splendour of Sioux Chief Crazy Horse
(who wiped out Custer's cavalry at Little
Big Horn) which a man called Korczak
Ziolkowski, of Boston, is going to carve,
chisel and blast out a mountain nearby.
Crazy Horse will take thirty years to carve.
Your uncle hopes to be alive by then, to see it.
And just thinking of the wild, crazy,
eternal beauty of the thing, your uncle will
forget his empty glass, and the piano player,
and the host winding up the clocks, and be
ready for another party.
LSE Bookings
Dear Sir:
I would like to voice an opinion which appears to be fairly
prevelant on the campus the last
few weeks. It concerns LSE
Recently there has been a great
number of booking cancellations
which in my opinion were not
called for. The most unorthodox
one recently being the Film Society's booking of the show "Lost
Horizon" in order to allow Dr.
Schuschnigg to speak. As this was
being sponsored by a Minor Club
on the campus, I see no reason
why a Major Club booking should
be deleted on only four days'
With such short notice as this
given, it is impossible for a film
showing to be properly cancelled.
As each of these presentations cost
between $40 and $50 and about
four or five business firms in Vancouver are involved I think that
there should be some very good
explanations forthcoming.
I would not say anything but
this was the fifth such cancellation this term. Many other organizations have the  same troubles.
Now  I  ask  you,  do you  think
that all these cancellations are
absolutely necessary, or is it just
some person or persons in the
LSE just a little incompetent?
I think something should be
done about this situation; maybe
a little organization would help.
In conclusion I think that at the
very least if a booking is relinquished it should be formally acknowledged before the other program is commenced.
A Disgusted Patron

Undoubtedly Mr. Nostrebor's intentions were good when he presented his versions of the Lord's
Prayer and the Twenty-third Psalm
for publication, but frankly I did

in this case are particularly degenerate. These pieces are meant
to be sacred so let's keep them
that way. In future when imitations are in order, I suggest an

David S. Stevenson
Humble Opinion
Dear Sir:
In view of the present discord
between Council, USC, The Daily
Ubyfcsey, and other supposedly representative bodies, would it not
be advisable to let the voice of
public opinion be heard?
It is my humble opinion that
the money in the Jabez Memorial
Fund could be utilized most profitably by affording the fabrication
and installation of "ballot boxes"
in which we could deposit OUR
opinions and votes on any public
The inauguration of a public
opinion poll on our campus could
be entertaining and humorous as
well as democratic and educational. In addition the ballot boxes
could also be used as suggestion
boxes; with the ten best suggestions printed daily in our oracle of
information—THE DAILY UBYSSEY-. I'll bet some of the suggestions would provoke Jabez to

University of Washington Cy Toren
and Eric Broderick met debaters to
discuss whether US foreign policy
towards Russia was justified.
Dennis Sheppard and Isabel
Cameron journeyed to Willamette for
a discussion of improving relations
between nations. Joan Fraser and
Ruth Walsh met Linefleld debaters
on the same subject.
Next trip south for UBC debaters is
scheduled for January or February

UNFEMININE MAYBE, grovelling in the ashes at the wee
hour of 5:30 a.m., but co-eds at UBC's unique "co-op" house
get used to roughing it in household chores. Nine of them shar^
in keeping their home ship-shape, sandwiching housecleaning
with psychology and entomology. Here, Vivienne Spicer, of Victoria, lends a hand in shaking down ashes for the early morning
fire.      •
Co-operation means "a joint
effort or labor toward a common end" and* no one knows
it better than 25 men and women in the university's two Coop houses.
Men's and women's co-op houses
situated on Fourth and Eighth avenues, respectively, are UBC's only
co-operative organizations and as far
as the residents are concerned they
are an unqualified success.
"Cost of room and board is decidedly less than average, the work is
light and there is plenty of opportunity for the group activity which is
the spirit of university life," members
The house's executive with the assistance of a house mother run the
residences smoothly, assigning duties
equally among the co-opers. Such
onerous tasks as cleaning, dishwashing, lunch making and (horror of
of horrors) furnace stoking become
almost pleasant when shared by a
group, residents claim,
To prevent the students' lives from
consisting only of study and house
duties, the entertainment committee
of the Co-op arranges one or two
socials during the course of the year.
Once a week, too, there is an "exchange." On this evening the boys' and
girls' houses exchange dinner guests
followed by an evening of bridge. It
seems one cannot live in a Co-op
house long before becoming a bridge
The houses are run on a strictly
constitutional basis, and are registered under the B.C. Co-operative Associations Act. George Calver, fourth
year   Aggie-Engineering   student   is
Manager-secretary of the organization
while Vivienne Spicer and Dalla
Lanna are the house managers.
General meetings are held periodically, where a senior board of directors, including faculty members and
leading Vancouver businessmen assist
students in deciding major issues.
One resident summed up the attitude of most of the members by
stating, "In a Co-op the individual
learns to work with others and to
undertake those responsibilities which
help to make a co-operative organization successful. He becomes a part of
a smooth running unit without losing
his individuality.
Oregon's Snow Impresses

UBC fraternities will be represented by proxy at the National Undergraduate Interfraternity Council conference in New York, November 28
and 29, according to Henry Sweatman,
president at UBC.
The New York meeting is the first
since the war. It will consider problems arising from oversize chapters, '
new chapters and the integration of
veterans and high school graduates
into fraternities. A number of other
subjects will also be discussed.
It was wonderful," he told reporters.
"The University of Hawaii is very
proud of its International Relations
Club," he said. ''It was founded in
1924 which makes it one of the oldest
in the world."

OVER HE GOES—Bill Boyd, UBC's entry in the Dominion
Gymnastics Competition is shown here going through a workout.
King of campus gymnasts, starry Bill Boyd, leaves today for
Montreal and the Dominion Gymnastics Championships. The
affair, slated for Nov. 29 and sponsored by McGill University, is
a one-day meet from which will be picked Canada's Olympic
Gymnast team. The competition, open to all comers, is the
first since the cessation of hostilities—hence the calibre of the
participants is virtually unknown.
White Hoopsters
Shine In Triumph
Things are beginning to shape up
in the UBC Minor hoop loop on the
campus. Pomfret's boys, the Whites,
came through with their first win of
the season Monday night at tho
UBC gym when they came from behind to beat the Sciencemen 36-33.
This is the third loss for the Red-
shirts. Denny Wotherspoon and Hugh
Rae continued to make up 26 of the
winners' 36 total, while I. Edwards
was top for the losers with 8 points.
In the second ball fracas of the
evening, "Big Boy'' Charleston lead
his Acadia teammates to a 29-31 win
over the Gold entry, garnering a big
18 points himself. The Gold' boys,
some twelve strong, were coached by
Clover Leaf centre Ole Bakken.
As a preliminary game to the Arrow-Chief game on Wednesday night
at UBC, the Blues will meet the
Acadia entry. On the following Monday night, the Lawyers play the
Sciencemen and the Whites battle the
Blues in a two-game evening card.
In the first game of the Girl's
Senior B league played on the John
Oliver floor, the UBC Thunderettes
played to a 23-15 win over the Tracys.
The game was pretty fast, as girls
games go, and under the mentorship
of Ruth Wilson the femmes ran the
other team off their feot.
Here is how the UBC girls scored:
Campbell 4, Summers 2,  Crooks 3,
McDermott  4,   Husband  3,   Schwartz
6, Bennettt 1, Fowler, Titus, Pendleton, Weedon,
Boyd's journey is sponsored by the
MAD, and a glance at his record will
indicate why. Starting at the tender
ago of 15, Boyd has copped the PNW
Junior Championship (1938) and in
the PNW Senior competition, he garnered first in the rings and second on
the horse. He also holds the interfaculty University championship, and
docs most of his gym work at Pro-
Rec, YMCA, and UBC,
A major in Physical Ed, Boyd
stands five foot four, and weighs in
at 128 pounds.
Next Saturday, the pick of Canada's
gymnasts 'Boyd among them) will assemble at the Sir Arthur Currie Memorial Gymnasium in Montreal. Each
contestant must operate on four pieces
of apparatus, the champ being picked
on the basis of total points. Six well--
qualified judges will be on hand to
pick the winner and runner-ups.
Perhaps Boyd?
Varsity Turfmen
At Top Of League
Varsity turfmen took over sole possession of the top spot of the City
Grass-Hockey League over the weekend, while their brother UBC team
dropped an important game to a
fighting Vancouver squad. t.
The Varsity crew blanked East-
India by a 3-0 count at Brockton
Point in a game which saw Dave
Pudney and Les Bullen carrying orf
most of the scoring honors.
At Connaught Park, UBC succumbed to a furious attack from the Vancouver team which put them on the
losing side of a 3-1 score. All through
the first half, the campusmen were
outmanoeuvered by the wide-swinging passing attack displayed by the
Vancouver aggregation. The second
half saw a complete reversal of form
with the Blue and Gold squad carrying most of the attack.

Birdmen, Ducks To Meet
In Two-Game Hoop Series
With a record of three wins against one loss under their
belts for this season, UBC's basketballing Thunderbirds will
once more take to the maples for a two-game series this Friday
and Saturday night. Opponents for the occasion will be the
University of Oregon Ducks who are reputed to be the team
to beat this year.
The games will be a climax to a four-year series which has
seen the Ducks carry off six wins to the 'Birds two. UBC's
only wins were registered in the season of 1945-46 when the
'Birds made all comers look like kindergarten squads. Experts,
however, predict that this season will be one of the best in the
history of the Point Grey campusmen. Not as much of a cake-
walk as in '45-'46, perhaps, but still one which should prove
highly successful.
Coach Bob Osborne will probably be back at the helm of
his team on Friday night, and any hoop fan on the campus
can tell you that Osborne is as good as six points any day.
UBC, White Spots Meet
n Crucial ice Fracas
All the pagentry and color of a major college sport event
will be on hand tonight for the gala hockey double header at
the Forum.
Drive, drive, drive! This will be the
word to the Chiefs this Wednesday !
night when they meet the Arrows on
the UBC maples. Last Friday night
the Arrow quintet triumphed over the
Chieftans by an eight point margin
and the UBC boys will be trying to
win back that game and make good
their loss. A win for the Chiefs would
place them alone in third place, while
a win for the Airowmen would put
them in sole possession of the second
slot in the standings. For this reason
the game may well prove to be one
of the best exhibitions of basketball
in this year's Senior A circuit.
