Snack Bars
Soon, Says
• TWO NEW Varsity snack bars
wUl open   in   two   or   three
weeks to reUeve the congestion in
the cafeteria, Frank UnderhiU,
Caf manager, said Wednesday.
Relief wUl be provided by one
unit at the bus-stop, equipped
with 60 stools. The other unit, in
Hut Four, haa been completed in
cafeteria style, and will seat a
hundred students.
Questioned regarding the delay
in opening, UnderhiU said, "They
want everything on the campus at
Ohce, but lecture huts come first.
Lack of builders and material Is
the big problem."
Both places will serve soup, coffee, tea, milk, soft drinks, dough-
mats, cake, and sandwiches, and
will probably be open at the same
hoars as the present caf.
"We'U open as soon as possible,
and the sooner the better," said
Mr. UnderhiU. "These two new
counters wlU help a lot."
As one student put it: "We'U
have lots of places to spend our
time now."
Sales Given Nod
Over Credit By
Commerce Head
• OF  THE  TWO   departmsnt^,
sales and credit, the former is
considerably more important, Prof-
Ellis H. Morrow, B.A., M.B.A. heal
of the department of commerce,
told the Canadian Credit Men's
Association at a conference held
Wednesday in the Hotel Vancouver.
The conference program, which
all Commerce students were invited to attend, is continuing today, and deals with problems of
rehabUltation, personnel relations
and credit in business. Professor
S. F. N. Chant wUl speak to the

unprecedented trade competition

en age when we may expect many
smell businesses to spring up, businesses whose future worth wUl depend upon moral and product-
marketability factors as much es

Mr. Morrow went on to say,
"perhaps the credit man himself
should help settle the issue instead
of complaining from the housetops that: 'The typical salesman
le a nonstop enthusiast equipped
with a fat paunch, strong cigar*,
flash clothes and a YMCA secretary's smile ... all at the company's expense. That he is the
despair of auditors and his charitable Impulses are matched only
by social workers. Happily he is
a mule without pride of ancestry
and goes to an early grave waving
an order book, and mourned only
by his employer's creditors.'"
4S0 Vets Enroll
• NORMAN, Okla. (UP)-University of Oklahoma officials
recently reported that more than
450 war veterans had enroUed at

Totem Sellers
• FRESHMEN,   ex - servicemen
and former Totem salesmen ere
urgently needed to handle Totem
sales this year, Dean Sherman,
sales manager of the yearbook said
A meeting of ail would-be salesmen wUl be held In Arts 102, at
U£0 Friday.
The price per copy is three dollars but for the students' convenience they wUl be sold on the
basis of one dollar down and two
dollars on receipt of issue.
T.ckets will be sold in the Quad
commencing Saturday noon and
every subsequent noon that the
quad is available. The number of
tickets sold will determine the
number of Totems to be printed.
All those who are not acquainted with the Totem are Invited
down to the Pub by the editor to
ponder over a few of the earlier
editions. For those who cannot
afford the tme, permit us to convince you Uterally by reminding
you that the Totem has won the
All-American honor rating for two
consecutive years, the first Canadian university yearbook to receive this award.
This year's large enrollment has
not daunted the staff. Student editors say they will make the Totem
bigger and better than it ever was.

for the Varsity Dance Orchestra. Of course if they can
sing so much the better!
Dave McLelland, leader of UBC's
popular dance band, is searching
the campus for songsters interested In accompanying the orchestra
when they play for the Varsity
dances and pep-meets.
Since he anticipates lots ot replies to his plea, Dave has arranged a sprightly competition to pick
Varsity's top singers of both sexes.
Competitors will sing with the
band during a private audition,
the members of the band acting as
judges. When they have the field
dwindled to two co-eds and two
men. the lucky crooners will sinK
at the Homecoming pep-meet, October 27, where their feUow stuck ni. will pick, by means of applause, whistles, and swooning,
the two permanent vocalists.
Thc band is whipping into shape
very quickly, all that's needed to
realy make it solid is lots and lots
of applicants for the vocal spots.
So all you would-be crooners

Psychology entered the discussions when the committee was debating advisability of a seven man
board—one representative from
each undergraduate society—or a
larger board of undergraduate executives.
Over the objection of President
Huj»h McLeod that psychologically
members would teel less responsibility in a large group, members
voted for reproscntatjon v.n USC

from all undergraduate groups.
The board slipped the motion

counter-motions and withdrawals

were entitled to vote on the membership issue.
The full meeting then decided
they were all members of USC.

Medicos Strive
For Faculty
Here in '46
• APPEALING FOR support of
a committee set up to strive
for a faculty of medicine at UBC
in 1946, Pre-Med society president
Pat Fowler today said that fourth
year Pre-Med Students should attend all society meetings.
The committee will publicize the
need for a medical faculty through
Vancouver papers and other agencies. Headed by Barney Murphy,
it includes Barry Hodgins, John
Hanley, Bob Telfer, Mike Shepard
and Jack Faghin.
Only through full co-operation
with this group will th: move to
establish a medical faculty gain
impetus, Fowler told The Ubyssey.
Figures which can be provided
only through 100 per cent attendance are necesyary as pun of the
publicity campaign.
Less than 33 per cent of UBC
pre-medical graduates were able
to enter a recognized medical
school last year, ^according to
Fowler. This year, the situation is
expected to become critical in
view of the numbers of veterans
returning to universities.
Establishment of a medical faculty at UBC in 1946 would help
to reduce the danger of pre-med
students not being able to complete
their training because of overcrowding schools in other part* of
Ideas and suggestions for the
publicity campaign are urgently
needed. Students should contact
members of the committee with
their proposals for putting across
to the pubUc the needs of this
Pre-Medical students wUl meet

Students Must
Obey The Law
• STUDENTS driving cars with
license plates issued in other
provinces than B.C., or with drivers' Ucenses from other provinces,
are required by law to take their
cars off the road until they have
obtained plates and driving Ucenses from the B.C. Police.
The Motor Vehicles Act makes
no provision for visitors other than
bona-flde tourists, who may use
their own licenses and plates when
ln possession of a permit. Students
at tlBC are not considered bona-
flde tourists, and are not eUglble
for the permits.
A spokesman at the Motor License Bureau told The Ubyssey
Wednesday that the regulations
must be followed, and that no exceptions could be made.
"If they don't want to take out
Ucenses," he said, "They can put
their cars in safekeeping. They
don't have to get a license for that,
as long as the car is off the road
and they aren't driving."
"On The Spot" Jones
the Morgue ...
• THERE HAVE been Cook's
Tours and there hat-e been
Cook' Tours, but here is the tale
of one of the most "squirm-providing" ones in many a moon.
It all happened last Tuesday,
Wednesday, and Thuisday, when
the students from two of Dr. C. W.
Topping's Sociology classes went
on a "Field Trio."
The place was the Vancouver
Police station, The equlrm-pro-
vlder, the city morgue.
The purpose of the trip was to
show students of Criminology and
social sciences behind the scenes
at our local law enforcement
The morgue was not by any
means the main stop on the tour
but it will certainly linger in tho
memory of some of the moi<'
touchy-stomached members of tho
class lonfl after the details of fin
gerprint technique and scientific
crime detection have been forgotten.
There wasn't much warning.
Morgue attendant Dave Quigley
simply appeared on the scene and
politely ushered the group Into his
bright Uttle workshop.
There was nothing scarey about
the scene that presented itself. The
room was brightly Uluminated by
fluorescent lighting. Everything
was white and spotless.
There wasn't a mar on the stainless steel operating table.
There was a stretcher in the co-
Mr. Quigley first Informed
everybody (fts If they didn't know)
that this was the city morgue.
A brief word of explanation as
to the work done therein lollowed.
Diminutive Mr. Quigley then
walked over to the stretcher in
the corner and removed the shee*
that covered it.
There was a muffled gasp from
fifty per cent of the class.
The other fifty per cent tried
nonchalantly to turn their backs
on the rather gruesome sight.
Several of the girls drifted towards the outer room.
"Some of the ones we get in hero
■are pretty bad, but as you can see,
the hair and skin on this one are
pretty weU preserved," Quigley
said as he fingered the corpus delect!.
A few more drifted towards the
outer room.
"All parts of the body have to
be accurately weighed, then returned to their proper place," lie
continued as he pointed to a nearby blackboard with various parts
of the human anatomy listed
along with thoir respective
There was a slight snicker from
some of the more sturdy members
of the class.
"A morgue Is not a laughing
matter, you never know lust when
you may be in there yourselves,"
the attendant added.
The tour continued.
The remainder of the group were
moved to the outer room to join
their comrades. The entire waU
at one end was covered with icebox doors.
"This is where we keep the
bodies until they are identified.
We've had one in here for over
eight years."
"And this end is reserved exclusively for floaters."
Someone explained the term.
One of the doors was opened.
More people turned away.
Someone else suggested the class
move on to the courts.
IVncticMly   everyone   agreed. T

Gloomy Forecast
• IF THERE IS anything in a name, with
full apologies to W. Shakespeare, it is
our opinion that the ill-fated "Fall Ball"
be called the "Foot Ball." It has already
been booted around from date to date on the
social calendar.
Ever since the time two years ago when
the Arts-Aggie was buried by the two faculties sponsoring this fall formal, with few
tears and even less wreaths, it has been
unwanted chjld of the Undergraduate Societies Committees.
Last year officials of the Undergraduate
Societies rolled up their sleeves, took a last
longing look at the essays they were supposed to be writing and textbooks they were
supposed to be studying at the moment, and
began to organize a fall formal.
Social calendar circumstances were
against them at the time, which was definitely ill-suited for a large formal function when
all the clubs, Greek letter societies, and cam
pus chowder and marching groups on one
side were holding meetings, banquets, social
evenings, initiations, pledge parties, and the
faculty holding exams on the other. No one
wants to worry whether the cleaners have
lost his tuxedo when club activities and
midterms are progressing at a merry clip.
The moral of it all is that the Undergraduate Societies will get no customers to
their "Fall Ball" if they persist in holding
it at a date when the social calendar is cluttered up with more function dates than the
new social co-ordinator will know what to
do with.
It's too late to do anything about the
"Fall BaU" now,—it's scheduled for "sometime in November," but in future it might
receive a better reception in the middle of
October, and should not cut down attendance for the Homecoming Dance which is
primarily intended for the graduates anyway.
Those Women Again
•   THE FOLLOWING editorial is a reprint
from the McGill Daily. It should prove
that women across Canada, bless their
hearts,, decided that their place in the academic field is not only in the Home Economics classes.
An enrolment of men students on the
campus which far surpasses that of any previous year has eclipsed another increased
enrolment on McGill. . . that of the women
students. A freshette class totalling over 300
new students brings the coed registration
for the 1945-46 session well above that of
former years. It is true that, in comparison
with the rest of the McGill enrolment, this
figure is a very small percentage; yet it is
a sign that the war's ending has done nothing to decrease the enthusiasm of the women
of our century for higher education.
To all these new students, we would extend a hearty welcome. To those who have
recently been discharged from the armed
services, we hope that our college lives up to
their expectations, as we cannot but feel
that it does. Royal Victoria College, although a more recent institution than McGill itself, has a long tradition behind it. It
is the tradition which acknowledges thc
right of women to equal education with men.
Lord Strathcona, founder of our college,
gave McGill co-eds the facilities with the
help of which they can exercise their right
to learn. Thus it is their privilege to see that
this right is in no way abused.
Here at McGill, women find themselves
receiving the same instruction from the
same professors as the men students. They
find the facilities for their education by no
means limited. Every opportunity that is
offered to the men students is offered equally to the women students. They can become
doctors, professors, nurses, teachers, or follow any other profession that men are permitted to follow.
But the opportunities are not limited to
the field of studying alone. The Women's
Union offers the same extra curricular facilities that are offered to the men students.
The Women's Union, whose president and
other executive officers are elected by the
women students on the campus, is a guarantee for self government, just as the student executive council, and the Men's Union are the guarantee that students generally, and men students particularly have the
same right.
It is interesting to note that the women
students on the campus have taken the lead
in maintaining and developing the cultural
and practical interests of the community. In
particular, the Programme Committee of the
Women's Union, which has played no small
part in the life of the campus in the past few
years, has introduced students to prominent
guest speakers such as Thomas Mann, displaying for our perusal works of prominent
Canadian and cosmopolitan artists, of photographers such as Youssef Karsh, and bringing for our enjoyment performances of top
Canadian musicians, as the McGill String
It is evident that the women's place on
the McGill campus has been no small thing
in the past. They have added to the general
development of our college along those lines
for which so many who are now returning
to college have been fighting. It is up to every woman student to see that she fulfils
her place in our campus life to the best of
her ability, thus proving once and for all,
by actions that add to our campus development, that women are equal to men. McGill
is truly co-educational, and v/omen are permitted an equal opportunity with men students. Let us not forget then that with such
an opportunity we must also take an equal
responsibility. The men students who are
entering this year are on the whole older
and wiser than those who have entered in
the past years. The women must and will
live up to their standards.
The Wassail Bowl
by Yak Scribe
• ALTHOUGH THINKING today is generally more rational than it was in, say,
15th century Europe, and religious tolerance
has become one of the four princples on
which our society is based, a great deal of
progress must yet be made in our understanding of religion. The trend toward im-
passionable thinking has been definite, but
far too slow.
The case of George Bowman's controversial address to the Varsity Christian Fellowship recently is a good illustration of how
easily friction may arise between those of
different faiths, even in the settled atmosphere of a university.
Withdrawal to groups, the formation of
societies for those of a particular religion, is
probably the underlying cause of the friction. There will no doubt always be difficulties of this kind so long as we continue to
divide ourselves of! into camps.
The Students* Christian Union, The Varsity Christian Fellowship, the Newman
Club, the Menhorah Society, are all excellent organizations which no doubt serve
their constitutional purposes for which they
were conceived. But why bring those of religious unity together on the campus for personal fellowship based on that unity?
To our way of thinking, these societies
could do Canada a great service by fostering
clear understanding and fellowship between
themselves and the members of different
We take no stand on Mr. Bowman's
speech, pro or con, but we take exception
to his reason for delivering it, which could
certainly not have been in the best interest
of promoting mutual good friendship.
Each of the four organizations mentioned
above should hold open meetings to which
members of the others would be invited. For
instance, the members of the Christian Fellowship should entertain the Newman Club,
the Menhorah Society should meet with the
Christian Union. Religion wouldn't be argued, of course, but mutual understanding
would be the goal aimed for.
Probably the best contribution to the
problem was made by the armed forces. In
them, religious differences were forced into
the background by the need for co-operation
and a stern discipline. Men came to understand one another because they had to live
together and associate closely. The religion
of one's friend came to be considered of less
importance in judging him than his character and personality. And that is as it should
Tiie question: "So long as you are sincere
in your beliefs, does it matter to God what
they are?" might well be asked when one
considers all wars, deaths, and sufferings
which have originated from religious difference in the past.
The whole problem is a world embracing
one, and only a great advancement in our
thinking will solve it.

• TWO OF OUR Ave readers
have been wondering what
would come of our recent attempt
to crack down on a Manitoba editorial.   WeU, now we know.
We have heard direct from the
man on the limb, and here is his
"Dear Sir:
After reading your column of
October 4th, I am much distressed
to see that you construe the editorial "West Coast Folly" as a
"secUonallst dart."
Perhaps the sub-head "B.C.
breeds hate and ruin" was misleading, perhaps you saw red after
the first few paragraphs—I don't
know. The article was directed
against specific groups, to wit;
those who advocate a policy of
complete economic Isolationism for
B.C. instead of trying to get a
better deal from the Dominion; and
those who advocate exclusion of
ALL Japanese, not some but ALL.
"Nobody suggested that B.C. was
the only place where anti-Japanese sentiment was rampant, Indeed
the article quoted an instance of
similar discrimination in a Winnipeg suburb. I chose B.C. because it seems to me that anti-
Japanese sentiment is more concentrated and better organized
there than anywhere else in Canada. Perhaps it is the fault of
the rest of Canada that ltjp there,
I don't know, but there lt is.
"Let me make this clear. I HAVE
B.C. AS A WHOLE, indeed some
of my best friends live on the
coast. My only quarrel ir. with thi*
two groups mentioned previously.
'1 thought I made this clear
enough in the article. In the last
paragraph, which you were kind
enough to quote, I said "the province's MAJORITY OF FAIR-
MINDED PEOPLE." Is this a sectional attack? Are you justified in
saying, in your sixth paragraph,
"That is you, Joe C. That is you,
that is me."?
"It certainly Isn't you or Joe C,
not unless you advocate economic
isolationism or complete Japanese
"Nobody's suggesting ihat we in
Manitoba are a buncn of whitewashed little angels. For years,
The Manitoban has conducted a
canwaign against violent anti-
Semitism within our' university
walls. I feel, and many others
feel that such problems as racial
hatred and economic fallacy aro
subjecs for the consideration of
EVERY Canadian, wherever he
lives. Such problems should be
attacked where they arise—et their
source, but the attack should be
conducted on a nation-wide scale.
"Perhaps we should have taken
the trouble to dig up some specif):
instances for you, instead of indulging In what you call 'warped
generalizations.' Can you really
deny, though, that some of your
businessmen—some, not aU—have
called for a policy of industry subsidization instead of resuming the
flght for removal of the mountain
"Do you think it's a satisfactory
and sound solution to the problem
of discriminatory freight rates? If
you can deny that some businessmen have caUed for such a policy,
I will return to my vacation haunts
at the Canadian Press and spend
a few afternoons finding the specific instances you request.
"By the way, did I sny that the
prairie war workers had 'overnight
become B.C. men.'?
"One thing further. Because
The Manitoban tries to present all
shades of student opinion, its editorial policy is 'every man for
himself.' I would be much obliged
if, in any future comments you
wish to make, you would attack
me personally and not The Manitoban, or the students of this university. Some of them approve of
the editorial; about an equal number of them don't, although their
disapproval is not quite as emphatic as yours.
"I doubt if you'U comply with
this request, but if your obvious
'sock-that-guy-on-the-jaw' anger
has cooled, you might re-read my
article and your reply, end consider—reasonably and dispassionately—whether one foUowa logically on the other.
Yours sincerely,
Editor, The Manitoban.

• THE THEATRE season in
Vancouver opened on Monday night with the presentation of
Daphne du Maurier's "Rebecca"
at the Urand theatre. Starring
Diana Barrymore and Bramwell
Fletcher, it is the story of a sec-
o.id marriage shadowed by the
spirit of the former wife.
Diana Barrymore portrays the
young, inexperienced bride of
Maxim de Winter who grows to
maturity through her husband's
need for her courage and understanding. The part, though ably
presented by Miss Barrymore did
not give sufficient scope for expression of the young artist's dramatic talent.
Bramwell Fletcher's performance as Maxim de Winter was given with great sincerity. His dramatic ability was weU illustrated
in the tense scene where he confessed to his wife his hatred for
Rebecca, which resulted in her
Mrs. Danvers Is the character
who forces the action of the whole
play. Ethel GriffU In this role
probably gave the best performance
of the evening, as the vindictive
housekeeper whose one desire Is
to keep the memory of Rebecca
alive. Miss OrlfhV very appearance gave her a diabolical air.
The supporting cast all contributed to the motion and suspense of the play, the incidental
humorous touches not being overdone. •
It is refreshing to see a popular
novel presented on the stage rather than the screen. More of
these performances should be encouraged in Vancouver.
To The Editor
Dear Madam:
A serious charge tnat British
Columbia breeds racial prejudice
has been brought against us by a
Manitoba paper. Unfortunately it
cannot be denied that there are
many legitimate grounds for such
a claim, especiaUy in the hysterical, anti-democratic expressions of
opinion in our papers from a minority of British Columbians intent
on driving every Canadian-bom
Japanese from the country.
However, this is but a small section of opinion In this province
and there are many more British
Columbians who   take   a   postlve
and enlightened democratic attitude toward the subject
Yours truly,
4th Year Arts
Miss Dianne Reid,
Beauty on the Spot, Oct, 13.
Dear, dear Miss Reld:
Don't use big words. . . "In
promulgating your esoteric cogitations, or articulating your superficial sentimentalities and amicable, phUosophlcal, or psychological observations, beware of platitudinous ponderosity. Let your
conversations and communications
possess a clarified conciseness, a
compact comprehensibleness, coal-
escent consistency, and a concatenated cogency. Eschew aU conglomerations of flatulent garrulity,
jejune babblement, and asinine affectations. Let your extemporaneous descantings and unpremeditated expatiations have intelligibility and veracious vivacity, without rodomontade or thrasonical
bombast. Sedulously avoid all
pollsyllablc profundity, pompous
prolixity, setaceous vacuity, ven-
triloquial verbosity, and grandiloquent vapidity. Shun double en-
tendres, prient jocosity, and pestiferous profanity, obscurant or
"In other words, talk plainly,
briefly, naturaUy, sensibly, truthfully, purely. Don't use slang,
don't put on airs; say what you
mean; mean what you say, and
avoid big words."
This was a letter we were glad
to have. Reprinting of it is complete and unexpurgated, and prevents our comment. We feel, however, that this letter presages a
better understanding than, frankly,
we had looked forward to on the
basis of the original editorial and
our immediate reaction to it
We are writing to Mr. McQueen.
His letter has established a mutual
basis for understanding. We like
it, and him.

IMAGINE the province of Alberta—and large areas of
Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec and the
Maritimes—covered by great shallow seas! That is
just what happened 300,000,000 years ago, when over
half of Canada's land area was submerged beneath
ancient "epi-contlnental" seas. The geologist's map
above shows you how our continent looked at that
pre-hlstorlc time.
Through long ages, vast quantities of silt and the
remains of marine plant and animal life settled on
the old sea floors. As time rolled on and on, a
miracle happened. The silt turned to rocky layers
of shale, limestone and sandstone j s; the fatty parts
of the dead sea plants and animals turned into
the substance we now call crude oil! Then
still another miracle took place. The earth
beneath the ieas began to heave and rise.
* * *
Pushing back the waters, it threw up the old seabeds,
with their layers of rock and oil, to form hills and
plains and mountains—and mould our continent to
the shape it has todays
If you look again at the map, you will see how this
ancient Invasion of the seas left us underground stores
of oil. The famous Turner Valley, the Mackenzie River
basin, the oil sands of Alberta—all once formed the
beds of ancient seas. So, too, did the still-producing oil
lands around Petrolia in Ontario. Today, wherever oil
is found in Canada, Imperial Oil drillers lead the way
in bringing it above ground where it can serve the
nation's needs. And year after year, Imperial Oil
scientists devote their full-time efforts to exploring the sites of the ancient seas for new oil to
meet new needs—and add new treasure to
Canada's national wealth;

for a minute or two and you'll find that
progress ls creeping up on us,—or vice versa. "The old order changeth, etc.," if you
Uke classical quotations. But however you
describe it, it's progress.
There's a basketball team, f'rinstance,
which has every intention of throwing off
the old shackles of the deteriorating city
league, and carrying UBC's blue and gold
banners into the northwestern states and into the class of ball they're capable of.
Then there's a Canadian football team
which is setting up a fair hum of activity on
the local gridiron, for they're re-entering the
Western Canada Rugby Football Union once
more. This year, UBC students will get a
chance to see the first Hardy Cup series in
five years.
And there are a few classes for square
and ballroom dancing, and advanced tumbling, gymnastics and fencing,—all co-educational, too.

is, we bow to the knees, doff our chapeau

He is the well-known city basketballer,

who has taken over direction of UBC's Physical Education department. The innovations
described above are due to his influence on
the local scene, and the intricate mechan

Coach Osborne is certainly familiar with
his environment having first appeared on
the campus in the early '30's. As a student
then, he teamed up with such alumni greats
as Cy Lee, Mac Campbell, "Hunk's" big
brother Arnold Henderson, and "Pi" Campbell to bring UBC the dominion hoop title
in 1931.
He graduated from this institution in
1933, and returned the following year for a
Teacher Training course. Teaching and basketball have been his main interests since
that time.
Starring on the old Province and Tooke
quintets in the city league, he just missed
another Canadian championship when the
Shirt team dropped the deciding game of the
finals to Victoria Dominos. That was in 1940,
and Bob hasn't played since then.
Before being commissioned in the army
to assist in the COTC, he taught at Lord.

What the future holds for UBC sports,
Director Osborne can't say for sure. But he
expects that a Physical Education faculty to

increased facilities, may not be long in coming.

iccording to Luke Moyls
•   A TELEPHONE is a wonderful thing. It certainly is a
handy gadget. Remind me to congratulate Don Ameche
the next time I see him. You've got to hand it to those Hollywood joes. They sure go in for inventive genius.
But, speaking of telephones reminds me that I am peeved more than somewhat when I receive a certain phone call
last Monday afternoon. It disturbs me no end.
Monday is always a busy day with me, anyway, and om
this particular Monday I am particularly up to my neck 1m
work. It starts off with the furious pace of meeting a deadline (no relation to a breadline), and squeezing in an English 9 lecture to boot.
Conference At The News-H
For some queer reason, sports copy always manages te
drift in despite the attempts of various scribes to murder the
stuff. And after the deadline swishes by (they tell me the
deadline swishes by every Monday, Wednesday and Friday
at 1:15, but I've never actually seen him), I beetle off in the
general direction of the News-H.
Well, while I am at the News-H, I am holding a brief
conference with the almighty one, Carlos Q. Robertson, whem
suddenly I drop it. The clock on the wall registers 29% minutes past five, which indicates that I have % minutes to make
the football practice at Varsity.
I slide down the bannister and make for the door, but
too late. A shrill scream penetrates my sensitive ear drums.
It is none other than Clancy "World Series" Loranger calling
me back. "You're wanted on the phone," he says when I get
within shouting distance.
Wire From A Sports Editor
Taking the stairs three at a time, I climb back into the
pint-sized nook they call the sports department of the News-
H. I pick up the receiver and I give with a snappy "Hallo."
"Is that Mister Luke Moyls?" queries a high, cracked
voice. After answering in the affirmative, the voice continues, "There's a telegram here from Murray Stewart,
sports editor of the University of Alberta's Gateway."
"Fine," I say, "let's have it."
"Expect team here on 24th stop how about some dope
on the team stop bzzz ... bzzzz . .. bzzz ..."
"Hokay," says I, and slaps the phone back on the hook.
Publicity Problem Pops Up
Well, seeing as how I have lectures all the next day, X
decide to get all the stuff off to this fellow sporting editor
that night. There is nothing like promptness, and beside*,
publicity is a wonderful thing. Publicity never hurt nobody,
except maybe Errol Flynn.
But this publicity angle is something which very few
people on the campus know much about. And this reminds
me of the MAD meeting which kept us out all night Tuesday.
The question of publicity was raised, and so were a few eyebrows when I gave them the answer.
Ah yes, telephones are wonderful creations. For instance,
you can always tell a guy off without worrying about suffering immediate consequences. After that, of course, there's
a minor problem of getting out of town with no lack of haste.
Indeed, a telephone is a wonderful thing. I wish they
would hurry up with that Student Directory.
