 Pub Massacres Late Council in Sporty Contest
• GOVERNMENT  FALLS—Council's  bill,   a  nefarious
scheme to annihilate the Pub, was defeated yesterday in
a gym-shaking brawl. Here we see one of the minor skirmishes of the match. Pubsters Bill Stewart and Pat Worthing-
ton have just succeeded in downing Ken Creighton who is
making a foul grapple at Stewart's leg. Stewart, is preparing
to deal the death blow, but his tomahawk had to be cut from
the picture because of some silly rule against the printing
of pictures of lethal weapons.
Mock Parlt.
Enlarged to 50
Seats by Forum
• AN ADJUSTMENT has been made in the Spring Mock

DOWNTOWN PAPERS REPORT
"PROTEST" OVER WAIVERS
•   VANCOUVER newspapers stepped into campus military
affairs this week to report a "protest" to UBC military
authorities by student members of the services against the
annual waiving of pay.
A downtown reporter attended
a private meeting of COTC and
UNTD men, which discussed proposed expenditures of the military
waiver fund, and recommended to
the Joint Services University
Training Committee that, after
military requirements on the campus are met, the waiving of pay
be discontinued.
Attended by 150 men, the meeting reviewed the system of pay
waiving so that the men would be
familiar with the procedure. The
stories in newspapers which resulted painted a picture of a mass
protest by the men against the
waiving of pay.
Student servicemen learned at
the meeting that the funds accumulated by waived pay will total
more than $33,000 by this spring.
Contrary to student expectations,
the money is specified by district
military authorities as intended
only "to develop, promote and foster military activities on the campus."
Students had hoped B nave the
money delegated for student bull-
dings and other facilities, such as
a student swimming pool, which
was suggested last year by Lt.-Col.
G. M. Shrum, officer commanding
military training at UBC.
Students Investigating the waiving of pay stated that, In their
opinion, the military authorities
on the campus were In agreement
with the idea to dlscontlue the pay
waiving. It was felt, however, that
the suggestion should come from
the men themselves.
By DENIS BLUNDEN
• BASKETBALL suffered a severe setback Thursday as the
Publications Board out-scored, out-
mugged, out-fought, out-punched
and out-housed a rotten 18 member Council team to the score of
1624 to 1230. Pubsters declare that
there is no connection between the
scores and phone numbers of the
respective offices.
Council played the game with
their usual characteristics, being 15
minutes late In arriving, since the
18 councillors had to beat up a
junior Canadian Rugby Team
from Point-Orey Kindergarten to
obtain their strip.
BAKKEN OPENS
Ole Bakken opened the play for
Council by hitting By Straight in
the teeth with a club. Straight,
however, had removed his teeth
before the game and suffered no
damage, and retaliated oy tutting
Ole back on the Dae* causing
Bakken to swallow his own loose-
fitting molars with one result that
he couldn't get his teeth into tha
game.
Bibbs pounded with his gavel
for order while the Pub scored
100 baskets In quick succession.
This unbalanced Ken Creighton,
who was balancing on the AMS
books, and he tripped onto the
floor and fell flat on his farce, got
all tied up, and had to be carried
to the women's showers for treatment.
ENTER SCOTT
Scott then entered the game.
He wrote three editorials, scored 100 baskets, picked up an egg,
hit his head against a post five
times to announce half-time, called
his senior editors into the office,
scored a few hundred more baskets, told his caddy to watch the
ball, made a 50 yard run to score
a touchdown, struck out 14 players, wrote a Government 1 essay,
made his point three times in succession, brought up a stiff upper-
cut, followed through with a right
cross, and called for the water-
girl.
Little Pocahontas Dundas ordered a round on the house.
During the Intermission Oreen
sold two totems, and quickly ran
the money up to 82,000 In a crap
game with Creighton, who had no
one there to Shield him.
In the second half, Raphael's
water on the brain got spilled on
the floor, creating a perfect pool
for surfboard riding, /ones came
in riding the crest of a wave and
quickly sunk three shots. Potato-
sack Bewell, exhibiting a nifty
backstroke, won the 50 yard freestyle, and Bow-tie Blunden swam
up from the rear but made a
bum try for the basket.
COED TACTICS
Backed by the seductive appearance of Council bloomer girls, the
game steadily developed a high
moral tone, ending when Barbara
Greene asked Junior Partner Donald Stainsby, Jr., to the Coed
Dance and Hejen Morgan tried to
swipe the Pub stretcher to carry
her man to the Coed.
At this point Harry James gave
out with "My Beloved is Rugged"
and Raphael roared out "She has
to be," whereupon fie was struck
by a thought and had to carried
out on stretcher, his head being
unused to such exercise.   '
Count Basie whipped up a Boogie number, Benny Goodman stepped In with his clarinet, and Ainsworth dashed off a snappy swing
version   of   "Advisory    Council,
what'll I do now?" accompanied
by George Rush hitting his head
on the backboard.
BIBBS TO RESCUE
After this no one could find the
ball, so Bibbs passed a minute
saying everyone should go back
to lectures and Council members
would gather In the Health Office to receive first aid or second
aid, according to the extent of
injuries.
PUB: Scott-1,000; Whltehead-
1,000; Dundas-three empty bottles
from Queen Anne's reign; Blunden
-1,000; Jones, 1.000; Dyer-1,000;
Stralght-1,000; Bewell-par 35; Mc-
Geer-Old Par 26; St3wart-3 touchdowns; Green-10 assists; Stainsby-

McGill Demands
Med. Students
Write Grad Exam
• MONTREAL, Mar. 3-
(CUP)— UBC students
desiring to study medicine at
McGill will be subject to
new entrance requirements,
a letter from Dr. J. F. Mcintosh, secretary of the faculty, reveals.
"After careful consideration it
has been decided that students applying for entrance to the Faculty
of Medicine should be asked to
write the graduate record examination sponsored by the Carnegie
Institute.
"This examination Is widely used
, in the selection of students for
the graduate schools of many institutions.
"I have been instructed by the
Dean to advise you that applicants for admission should make
arrangements to write this examination at a suitable time.
"For the purposes of writing the
exam, applicants are considered in
three categories. Firstly, students
presently ln their second year who
plan to make application for the
classes which commence In September, 1946. Secondly, students
who have already made application for admission in September,
1945.
"All students In this category,
whether graduates or undergraduates, are advised to take this examination. The results will be
given considerable weight In the
selection of students for admission to the Faculty of Medicine.
"Lastly, students who have already been accepted for admission are also advised to write the
examination for their own information and for the information
of the Faculty. Failure to take
this examination will not prejudice their position as applicants,
unless the individual forfeits his
status by failure to maintain hlu
academic standing."

ENGINEER LACKS
"SOCIAL SCIENCES"
•   AN ENGINEER is one of the best educated men in the
community but he lacks a background of the social
sciences, President Norman A. M. MacKenzie told members
of the Engineers' Undergraduate Society.
"~~~~~~"~m~"—~~——"-""■"-""" The address was one of a series
Students to Have
Representative in
Symphony Society
• NEGOTIATIONS are now being carried out with the Vancouver Symphony Society for student representation on their Board
of Directors.
Gordon Bertram, president of
LSE, has made arrangements with
the Society for two concerts to be
held next year instead of the usual one.
Because of this It is telt that a
university student should be Included on the Society's Board of
Directors.
If the proposal is accepted a
student picked for both musical
appreciation and technical ability
will represent the university.
SCM Holds Camp
At Ocean Park
• ANNUAL   Student   Christian
Movement camp,  to  be  held
today and tomorrow at Ocean
Park, is still open for anyone
who wishes to attend.
All particulars may be obtained
In the SCM room in the Auditorium building. Costs have-been estimated at around $3.00 a person.
Rev. W. R. MacWilliams will be
the main speaker on the theme,
"The Crisis in our Time."
of vocational lectures being presented by the EUS.
The president pointed out that
though the Engineer is among the
best educated men ln the community, he lacks background In
the social science because he refused to study any more of the
social sciences than he needs In
order to pass.
At the conclusion of the president's talk Dr. MacKenzie' answered questions from the Science-
men. Main topic of the discussion
was the relation of Engineers to
trade unions.
The president said that Engineers should not take sides with
either management or labor, but
rather they should act as a go-
between with the two factions.
Time ran short before the discussion was finished. The president said that he would be pleased
to speak to the Engineers again
and would especially like to take
part in another discussion.
Dr. MacKenzie was not "putting
on the dog" at the EUS meeting,
but his faithful collie attended
with him.
The president was introduced by
Dean J. N. Finlayson, 6san of the
faculty of Applied Science.

Today on the World's Battle Front
THE WESTERN FRONT
• MARCH 3- (BUP) -The spectacular sweep of the Allied Armies toward the Rhine River is
beginning to pay off big. General Simpson's 9th Army has unleashed a hay-maker that has sent
the punch-drunk Nazis reeling a-
slde and allowed the 9th to spurt
to the Rhine opposite Duesseldorf.
The break-through cuts the enemy's forces in two and leaves the
Germans between Duesseldorf and
Cologne In dire straights.
Todays  Allied  tropfftes include
capture of two important German
cities—Krefeld,   and   the   historic
town of Trier.   American 9th Army troops are now storming Neuss
—the western end of three Rhine
bridges still believed intact. According to front dispatches, German troops, armor and vehicles
are streaming east across the
Rhine bridges. And an important spokesman from General
Montgomery's Headquarters says
events of the last 12 hours are—
and we quote—"the most significant of the war in the West since
D-Day."
THE EASTERN FRONT
• MARCH 3- (BUP) -On the
Eastern Front, Russian armies
have laid the groundwork for a
new Nazi disaster by cutting
across the last railway along the
Baltic leading out of Eastern Pom-
Germans announce new Soviet
pressure on the Silesian flank, and
Moscow says great Russion  col
umns are streaming westward.
This apparently means that the
next phase of the offensive—the
frontal assault on Berlin—is about
to begin,
THE PACIFIC FRONT
• MARCH 3-(BUP)-HaU-way
across the world, in the Pacific,
the Yanks have seized another
island in the Philippine group.
Shock troops of the 24th Infantry
stormed ashore on Lubang and
quickly mopped up scattered Jap
resistance on the island. The American hold on the Western exit
of Verde Passage—the main navigational route for supplies from
the United States—was thereby
clinched. This makes the 18th successful Yank Invasion In the Philippines since General MacArthur
"returned." EDITORIAL PAGE

Campus Co-ordination
Co-ordination has been the by-word on
the campus recently. The Literary and
Scientific Executive has established a coordinating committee for noon hour events.
The musical groups on the campus have
formed a council to co-ordinate all musical
activities at UBC.
Co-ordination, and its Uttle brother, cooperation, is one thing this campus could see
more of more often. We congratulate the
Literary and Scientific Executive and its
hard-working president, Gordon Bertram
and the six music organizations for leading
the way to a more efficient set-up of student
affairs.
Next thing we would like to see co-ordinated is the planning of social functions.
The LSE committee will be made up
of representatives of major organizations on
the campus. It will work to secure more
noon hour events. If the committee's work
is successful confusion of noon hour activities should be ended permanently.
Parliamentary Horse Play
The coming Mock Parliament promises
to be a very interesting one, if reports from
the contesting parties mean anything. Surprise of the year is the election of a Progressive Conservative government, which will
be headed by Doug Belyea.
Second oddity is the former Liberal, Les
Raphael, heading the CCF party. We will
enjoy watching Mr. Raphael compromise
himself again.
It will be a motley group of parties
composing the remainder of the houes. The
Liberals will be there, and the Labor Progressives, but two other upstart groups with
opposite faiths will complicate the scene.
The National Co-ordination Party, a
worthy name, will attempt toi do away with
the "outmoded parliamentary system of government". The Canadian Independence
Party will advocate strident nationalism, in
addition to a one-party system of government.
The, government will bring forth a bill
on education and advance the cause of free
enterprise, but refuses absolutely to "build
any dream castles or a cake with fairy icing".
The evening of March 7 should be great fun.
A Double Table Doodle
Perpetually "genial" Frank Underhill of
the Caf is asking nervous students to stop
doodling on Cal tables. Those beautiful pictures and remarkable rhymes inscribed laboriously on Caf tables are causing hardship
in the Caf.
It seems that it takes a lot of work 40
clean off tables after student artists and
writers have spent a day at their art. Our
aesthetic student body is making Caf wait
resses work unnecessary overtime.
It is a small thing to ask, thinks Genial
Frank, and we agree, for students to substitute paper for tables when they feel the
aesthetic urge coming on. So both Genial
Frank and The Ubyssey ask it. The Discipline Committee is demanding it.
Remember, a doodle on paper is worth
two doodles on a Caf table.
A Good, Healthy Game
Basketball is a good, healthy game for
growing boys and girls. It builds muscles,
bright faces and happy minds.
Today a silver trophy stands in the honored halls of the Publications Board as silent
testimony to our glorious victory last Thursday over the infamous Dirty Nine.
Despite an unusual amount of council
trickery, the Pub played its usual good,
clean game of basketball. Students no doubt
noticed how hard it was for us to hold our
selves in check, as one foul deed after another was committed by council.
Pressure of work has forced us to refuse
a very attractive offer to teach our style to
the Thunderbirds. If they ever show signs
of needing it, we may reconsider our decision. We may.
Basketball is a good, healthy game for
growing boys and girls. It builds muscles,
bright faces and happy minds.
Let Us Learn Tolerance
Tolerance, like truth, is rarely met, and
even more rarely practiced. The world, and
this university, is full of people who pay
merely lip-service to tolerance. The action-
service of tolerance is the important requisite and criterion of education, and by this
yardstick, an educated man is a rare animal
indeed.
Before we attempt anything greater, we
must learn tolerance for our fellows within
these small walls. There are those who can
tolerate the Chinese when he is in China
but not when he is in the same room or the
same bed. This is the purest form of lip-
service to tiie ideal. We must learn to respect fellow students in our own classes before we can talk of respect for those who
study in other lands. The narrow specialization that a highly industrialized world has
demanded of students has made them fools
in everything except the small field with
which they are familiar. And this ignorance
of the larger sphere has resulted in a weak
and thus suspicious class of "educated" men,
who are at the mercy of their ignorance.
A man who knows how to split a participle would be at a complete loss to split a
log for his fireplace, and therefore he is at
the mercy of whoever may see fit to hire
participle-splitters. The man who can radio-
activate an atom is helpless at milking a cow,
and therefore is at the complete pleasure of
whoever can see fit to supply milk for an
atom-radioactivator. This aspect of specialization opens up a wonderful field for abuse
of the essential worth of the expert parti-
ciple-and atom-splitter to the community at
large. He is merely a tool of his immediate
employer, who has only the good of the
community at heart when, in the short view,
he sees that it is his good too. This is not
very often the case, and the weakness and
the dependence of the specialist is exploited
to the detriment of tiie community in the
greatest possible measure. The intelligent
(?) expert is more of a hindrance to the ultimate good of society than a help, and he
may even realize this himself before he is
very old in service.
Then there is the other aspect of specialization, and that is the distrust that is found
between two specialists in different fields.
They do not talk the same language, they
cannot understand each other, and thus they
are suspicious. The participle-splitter thinks
the atom-radioactivator is an utter fool because he knows nothing about participles,
and the atom-radioactivator thinks tiie participle-splitter is a dolt because he does not
understand Einstein's relativity theory. They
glare at one another,and have no common
meeting ground, except in the mind of an
expert machinist, who thinks they are both
fools, because they cannot thread a shaft.
The employer of all three chuckles.because
he knows they are all fools, and could not
live for a day if he did not need them.
These walls between students in different fields must be broken down before they
can work together for the common good, and
this means a course that is more general in
the required directions—a true education.
This true education can also extend tolerance and respect outside the walls of the
university to* all the peoples of the world.
When we learn to tolerate one another here,
then and then only will it be possible to
learn tolerance for all peoples. When our
education becomes more general, we shall
begin to seek the "why" of all things, not
merely the "how". And when we understand, and not merely observe, human behavior as well as the behavior of the physical
world, then we can tolerate it. When we
hear that Mr. X murdered his wife, we call
him a scoundrel. When we learn that she
had made his life a hell on earth for the last
sixty years, and was infamously unfaithful,
we begin to tolerate him, are we in any position to remedy conditions so as to eliminate
further deeds like that of Mr. X, and to
teach him not to repeat his performance.
This is a rather ridiculous example, but
there are things more ridiculous in life than
this. We censure unreservedly because we
are ignorant, and have not tried to make
ourselves wise.
These are two aspects of tolerance, and
they are not unique, but are important. They
are a big enough goal for a beginning, a beginning that we have not yet made. Once
again tiie responsibility is no one's but our
own. —THE SHEAF.
• U. S. A and
the peace
• WALLACE is an uncompromising New Dealer and has proposed a plan for post-war employment and economic adjustment that
showed imagination and courage.
His appointment to the positions of
Secretary of Commerce and Federal Loan Administrator would
give him tremendous power over
government lending after the war
and over government policies toward business. Since he is on the
side of the smaller business man
he is not liked by the corporate
groups, and they are doing their
best, through the Senate Investigation committee, to scotch his appointment or at least to neutralise
his power.
The picture is further defined
when we turn to the State Department and And Mr. Stettlnlus ln
charge. His outstanding ability as
an administrator ls undeniable, but
all his life he has been associated
with such names as J. P. Morgan,
United States Steel, and Oeneral
Motors, and there isn't much doubt
where his sympathies lie and what
forces govern his thinking. If he
is to be one of the principal peace
negotiators, the big business Influence can hardly fail to make
itself fait.
no noasMsevrt action
A ounory glance at the vice-
presidency reveals a fairly negative quantity as far as any progressive action in tht peace is
concerned.  Harry Truman was a
railway  signal  man who, while
young, turned to politics and has
been successful ever since. At best
he can be depended on to occupy
the middle of the fence, for he
was the only man that was acceptable to sny degree to all factions
at the Democratic convention.
Again, as after the last war,
the role the United States plays
in the peace that is being plan,
ned today Is going to have a
very great effect en Its nature
and therefore its permanence.
1h« part she plays and the attitude she takes to the problems that will arise are going
to be even more important because ot the reduction In the
site of the world since 1911
and   the   participation   of   a
greater number of nations In
this war than to the last. Indeed her decisions carry more
weight today than formerly because she has retained the status of a great power while their*
number has been decreased.
Some idea of the nature of the
peace may therefore be discovered
by the layman by observing som*
0/ the political Influences at play
in the United States today and
the personalities that have emerged on the horizons of public office.
The personalities are important because they reflect not only  the
temper of the public mind but
also the influences that govern the
destinies of that country.
OUTSTANDING
Probably the outstanding illustration of the situation has been
the disputes arising oyer the appointment of Henry Wallace to the
position of Secretary of Commerce.
Mr. Roosevelt has been seeking
Wallace's replacement of Jesse
Jones in this office for over a
month with little success, and it
looks today that if Wallace's appointment of Jesse Jones in this
office for position with reduced
power only.
In the group then that Roosevelt
has to assist him in formulating
the peace, big business is possibly
too well represented. This is
lementable from the view point
of the common man, for such influences tend to restore the world
to the place where it used to be
before the war, and will undoubtedly ensure a greater concentration of economic power and consequent further lowering of the
status of the individual.

MAMOOKS PLOT BIG
SURPRISE FOR UBC
By JEAN MacFARLANE
•   'THERE IS another first for UBC! Little and big signs
all over the campus have been proclaiming this fact all
week. There is no explanation attached to the signs. That
is all they say.
With such a lltle bit of intriguing information supplied, it immediately starts the Inquiring minds
of the students to work. Many
questions suggest themselves.
"First what?" "When was the
other 'one'?" "So what?" Yes Indeed, the students of this University certainly have inquiring
minds.
But no answers seem forthcoming. It would seem that lt is a
secret, and to make mattera worse
no-one is supposed to ffinow about
it. And if that wasn't bad enough,
it is a secret And not only that,
but... aw shut up.
But what 1 was gomg to tell
everybody was the real meaning
behind those cryptic signs, and I
will, too. Only the one flaw is,
I don't know what they mean.
No-one would tell ...*, anly he
doesn't know either.
I eaked millions of people. I
asked people in the caf. They did
not know. I asked people In my
lab. Timy didn't know. I asked
Joe. And even Joe didn't know!
I asked the Mamooks. They knew.
But would they tell me? Answer—no. All they could do was
leer at me and scream "There is
another first for UBC." That
much I knew. What dumoos. Everybody who eats In the caf knows
that. And everyone who just goes
down to the caf for the refreshing
atmosphere knows.  I know.
Joe knows.
Well, as I can) tell you what the
signs mean, I will tell you what
I think they mean. Which Is practically the same thing, because
naturally I am right. Natch.
So maybe it is about the Frosh
Party. Hmmmmm? Or maybe it
is about the engineers. Surely
they .have done something a bit
different lately. No? Well, maybt
the Mamooks thought that the
council was going to beat the Pub
at that beautiful fiasco on Thursday. But no, even the Mamooks
couldn't make a mistake like that.
Oh well, of one thing we are
sure. "There is another first lor
UBC." Do YOU know what it
means, hmnuwn?
Tell me.
New Stage Velours
Acquired for UBC
• THE NEW curtains for the
auditorium have arrived
and are now installed.
They are made of velour and
are double-tided. This means
that two back-grounds or seta
are available for the coming

in Halifax. His resignation "due to a fundamental divergence
in viewpoint with the governing board of the university," was
offcially disclosed last Monday night. He has held the senior
faculty post at Dalhousie for some 12 years.
DISTINGUISHED CAREER __
Dr.   Stanley's  academic  career
was a distinguished one.  In 1913      0 £1
he graduated from the University
lignboard

and winning two gold medals for
scholastic excellence. Pursuing
his studies in England, he received
both a Bachelor's and Master's degree ln Arte at New College, Oxford. Honorary Doctorates of Law
from Toronto end Maine unlversi-
ties foUowed respectively in U»
and 1685. In the Utter year, the
University ot Colorado awarded
him an honorary Doctorate la
Literature.

EXPONENTS OF ARTS
During his tenure of office at

laat Fall was noteworthy In Its
significance. He urged students to

apathy" prevalent ln higher educational circles today.
"The story of how to live the
good life and how to spread the
good life among one's fellows, lice
dose to the focal purpose of education," Dr. Stanley declared. "No

good life without living the good
Ufe for others."
LETTER TO
THE EDITOR
The Editor,
The Ubyssey.
Dear Sir:
If it were not for the fact that
I am defending one who U long
since deceased, there should be no
further letters from me on the
subject of, as you so aptly put It,
Mr. Editor, "The Ostentatious Mr.
Peeper." (He Is Indeeo a show-
off, and "ostentatious snail he be
henceforth.)
My previous letters have declared his falsity. He continues to
be as he has been denounced. To
indicate that he has heard of Mr.
Addison and also that he has seen
references to "The Spectator" do
show a weakening on his part, yet
he has not acknowledged himself
openly.
Such a scoundrel must be a
Scotsman and I Intend to find him
out. Hence, w1' siller a«e scarce*
I accept the Invitation of «ir. Ostentatious to be his guest one evening at the theatre.
I await the necessary information to facilitate this meeting.
I am, sir, your humble servant,
"Sam. Johnson".

ELECTRIC DEVICE PREVENTS
GUN JAMMING ON AIRCRAFT
SPECIAL TO THE UBYSHY
• SCHENECTADY, March 3—An automatic gun charger
that "thinks for Itself in preventing failure of aerial machine guns because of defective rounds of ammunition has
been developed by General Electric for the B-29 Superfortress, P-61 Black Widow and other new airplanes, the company revealed here.	
This device Initially cocks the
plane's guns, wiU recognise an
ammunition failure, help dispose
of a defective round and Insert
and fire a new one. If a gun repeatedly falls for approximately
8 successive rounds, It will "decide" -that something ls radically
wrong and will stop all further
operation of that gun.
Almost Imperative whenever
aerial machine guns are located
so that they are not readily accessible to the man who fires them,
these chargers perform electrically
the same Job a gunner ln a directly controlled turret performs by
first thinking out the trouble and
then correcting it by hand. According to company engineers,
S their use has played an important
part in making these planes more
than a match for enemy aircraft.
THREE UNITS
OJC's gun charger consists of
three priclpal units, charging, firing and timing. The firing unit
fires the gun normally. The timing unit determines when to
charge the gun, in case a defective
round occurs, and the charging
unit clears ammunition malfunctions.
Air under the high pressure of
1,000 pounds per sqtmte inch ls
used to operate the charger. To
make available a constant supply of this air without using sir
bottles, which require frequent refilling, O-E engineers developed a
small air compressor. Tnls Is
monuted on the turret, where It
maintains a supply of high pressure air at all times, with no need
for refilling the pressure tank
from an outside souree. Pressure
produced by this compressor Is
much higher than that reached by
any similar device previously used
on planes.
Flfty-callbre machine guns on
the B-29 and P-61 will operate
under almost any atmospheric
conditions. Because of this, the
chargers are designed so that they,
too, will function under the same
conditions. Their continuous operation is permissible at temperatures from 65 F below zero to 160
F above zero, as well aa under
extremes In humidity and et any
altitude. Furthermore, since the
charger is primarily a safety device to insure continuous operation of the guns, it Is so designed
that Its failure will not occur for
the same reasons that might cause
gun failure.

Scienceman Gets
Singed Sandwich
• SOME   sciencemen   like   hot
times, but the scienceman ln
the Caf yesterday morning had
Just a Uttle too much to suit him.
He wm sitting calmly at a Caf
table before the groggy hour of
9:00 son. He was calmly fixing
up a Civil Engineering paper for
submission at a Uttle later date.
An. Aggie friend of his who undoubtedly wanted to "horse a-
round," sauntered over and set
said Engineer's lunch afire. Immediately bystanders Jumped up
and tried to put out the flames.
After the flames had subsided
the wisecracks began to pour onto
the poor man In red. Several
nearby people promptly inquired
about toasted cheese sandwiches.
Aside from one lunch and several burnt fingers the damage was
negligible. At any rate it should
go to prove the old adage, "Little
men who play with matches usually have a pretty hot time."
Artsmen Engineers
HoldAII-dayBattle
• MONTREAL, Mar. 3-(CUP)
—Artsmen snd Engineers battled in a day-long snow fight at
McOlU this week with much damage to Commercemen who dared
to meddle in the ancient feud.
The Engineers disregarded every rule, Including that of chivalry to women. They argued they
had the law on their aide, as the
Initial blows had been struck at
them by a foray of energetic Commercemen. The Artsmen protested, as the Engineers should have
retaliated by bombarding the
Commerce hideouts, out the Engineers, In their savage tury, had
no time for subtle distinctions.
The fighting raged on and a-
round a National Research Council truck, then up the Arts Building steps, where Yalter Reld
locked the doors.
Undaunted, the Artsmen turned
necessity into a glorious triumph,
and uniting with Science, and
Commerce, battled their way past
the Plumber Workshop to the now
aUled Physics Building while the
wounded, dead, and dying pUed
up In the Chemist's sanctum.

T^oteonvl^ (EdtttpatHt. • JUST DREAMING?—Can you imagine a gym on our
campus like the one pictured above? This is what the
University of Western Ontario is working for at the present
time. UBC students would really have something to be proud
of if we could have something like this on th* campus. This
*• the gospel...
according to LUKE MOYLS
SPEAKING OF BUILDINGS ...
• SPRING IS here, tra la. And March comes in like a
lamb, but it seems Luke goes out like a dog, a sick one at that.
However, it took 54 sports pages to do it, and something tells
me that's a record, seeing as how they never had more than
40 issues a year until John Tom took over.
Looking over a recent issue of the Manitoban, I stumbled
across a rather startling article by two gentlemen, Eric Berg-
enstein and Thomas Weber: It appears that these two enterprising scribes got together in a two-man campaign, and one
of their results was practically a full-page spread! in the University of Manitoba's sheet.
They begin their epic rather bombastically:
"This war has shown us much about our Canada. It has
proven to us that she has a great will, a strong heart, a sound
pocket-book, and a weak body. We mean just that!"
Oh For A Building Like That
They go on to explain that "medical examination on a
national scale, carried out during the last few years, have
brought this startling fact to light. The number of medical
rejections of our country's youth is a disgrace to a nation
reputed to be the breadbasket of the world."
They are campaigning for the construction of a Physical
Education building on their campus, and I could easily fill this
sports page with all the material that they presented in favor
of such a building.
The above sketch illustrates the kind of building they
want. It's nothing out of the ordinary in the way of Physical
Education buildings, if you have the Physical Education Department.
Here on the UBC Campus, we have a half-hearted P.E.
Department. But there is a good man behind our athletics—
Mr. M. L. Van Vliet—and once our department gets on its
feet, there's no reason why UBC shouldn't set the pace in
Physical Education.
UBC Needs A Fieldhouse Too
However, one of the first requirements for such a department is a fieldhouse of some sort or another. Here we have
no such building. You can't call our gym a fieldhouse. In
fact, you can't call our gym a gym!
The building pictured above would house but the bare
necessities of a Physical Education Department. If you'want
to get more elaborate, take a, look at Stanford, or the University of Washington, or any of the American University
Fieldhouses.
The one above houses two fully-equipped gyms, handball courts, a boxing and wrestling ring, a swimming pool,
bowling alleys, recreation rooms for ping pong, pool, etc.,
lecture rooms and offices.
The field house illustrated above was designed for the
University of Western Ontario. The building, which will be
constructed this year, will cost $500,000. Western Ontario
has an enrolment of 1979 students, and is situated in a comparatively small town, London, Ontario.
And here we are, still wondering what to do with the
waived pay in the COTC fund. Some day, UBC will wake up
to the fact that athletics and physical education are vitally
necessary to any university.
set-up would give the University a building set aside for
Physical Education and would include a gym in which to
carry out the Physical Education Program and floor sports,
a pool for swimming and aquacades, alleys for bowling and
room for other popular sports. These sports and many others
would then have a true home on the campus. It would really
make sports a big part of the UBC life. Who knows—maybe
someday in the future, UBC students might be that lucky.

Win Via TKO
• THE SPORT card of ISS week
camo to a close yesterday with
the end of a lively boxing exhibition in the Varsity Stadium. A fair'
crowd of fisticuff fans turned out
to witness this contest sponsored
by the Phrateres.
In the main event of the noon
hour card, Will Gregorak and Bob
Listee battled it out to draw. The
two husky lads were very fast and
made the best of every opportunity they had.
The best event, in the eyes of
most spectators, was the scrap
between Johnny Kennedy and
Mac Gelespie.   Gelespie came
ln hard and copped a technical
knockout over Kennedy.
To wind up the card, Bill Hoyk
boxed his way to a clean cut decision over Harry Bell-Irving. The
boys fought an even battle up to
the end of the last round when
Hoyk   put   on   the   pressure   and
forced Bell-Irving around the ring.
A great deal of the success
of this exhibition was due to
the work of PhU Olsen.   Phil
took over the refereeing of the
three bouts, and turned in a
very successful Job.  When he
is not  refereeing fights, Phil
spends his time giving tips to
the student boxers.
This was the first contest of its
kind to be presented on the campus, and by the looks of the spectators it is going to go a long way.
The boxing club seems quite well
organized now and any budding
boxers will  be welcomed at  the
club's workouts.
reply.
The Laurie squad finally whittled the lead down however and
had come to within eight points
before Pat McGeer went up with
a shot just as the wiustie went
to give the 'Birds a 10 point margin.
The 'Birds will be out there to
finish the series off if it's humanly
possible tonight so that they can
get down to work. It seems that
they want to get through this
year! If the students do take this
tilt, it will probably be their last
appearance on the maple courts
this year.
It ls highly improbable at the
present time that the Pat Bay
Gremlins will be coming here as
was rumored fonnerly. If the
fellows see a big enough crowd
out tonight, they may be inspired
enough to go out and put on a
torrid show for you as their last
game in Senior A ball. See you
there.
