Tim Buck Issue Prairie Campus Queens    Majorettes Too
'Misconstrued'   Arrive Soon For Contest
In a statement to The Ubyssey
late y edtrday, AMS president led
Kirkpatrick attempted to clarify
Student Council's stand regarding
Its reread to permit the godd
Problems Caub to sponsor Tim
Buck as a eampus speaker.
fallowing is the text of tht
■•■ "Prom tht outset, it has been
unfortunate that tht so-called "Tlm
Buck issue" has bean misconstrued
to mean something that it dots
not; namely, a tupprtsdon ef tht
right os freedom of speech, Tht
Student CouncU had to rtfutt tht
Sodal PreMtmt Club permission to
present Tim Buck. Had it not, it
oould have been proved that direct
poUtical affiliations wtrt being
made bj the club in question.
*«Wl«h this proof before them,
tho council would have had no
dterantlvt but to declare tht
Sodd Club def und. litis we would
be very unwilling to do.
"Previous to this issue, ail
speakers that wtrt recognised poll,
tidans or aptakJag on poUtical is-
sustt wtrt presented by the Paril-
amtntary Forum. CouneU wUl
continued thit policy of permitting
tat fsnge te sponsor such speak-
set op for fhe purpost
of makteg arraagtmtnts for Inviting epeaktrs. Such a committee
would bt tempottd of the heads of

The Veteran's Bureau was established on the campus on October
1st 1945 with the primary purpose
of advising and councelling dl
veterans attending UBC. Since then
ithas also taken over the duties
of handling D.V.A. checks and
checking attendance and academic
standing of all ex-service students.
The two full time counsellors,
Major J. F. McLean and Dr. Black,
with the assistance of two part time
counsellors have given initial interviews to over 7,000 veterans In the
last year and a half. Almost a similar number of request interviews
have been granted in order to
stranghten out flnincial difficulties,
housing problems, course changes
and many of the other problems
facing vets.
Many veterans hflve taken advantage of thc helpful apptitude and
mte-ost  tests the Bweau has on
hand. These tests, especially tiie
Kuder appitude ted, have helped
a great number of undedded and
uncertain dudents in dedding Just
what vocation they are bed suited
for and has enabled them to plan
their course accordingly.
From the first of October, 1945 to
the first of October of this year the
Bureau handled over 29,700 DVA
Working in close conjunction
with the Veterans Counselling Service is the University Employment
Bureau, which is located in the
■'•irae hut near the south-east corner
of the Armouries. Although the
Fmploymcnt Bureau has not placed
as many people as it would like
to. it has nevertheless found part
time employment for more than
0,000 students fluring the summer
and the regular sessions. THE UBYSSEY, Tuesday, November 5, 1946   Page 2

MAJORETTES STEP OUT—Members of Varsity's newly formed Drum Majorette Corps,
Mary Jane Patterson, Victoria; Joan Charters, Calgary; and Gloria Newell, Kamloops, parading at the Homecoming American Football game between Idaho and UBC.
Twelve hundred alumni members, scattered over five
continents, and more than 100 successful play productions,
make up 31 years of UBC Players' Club History.
Professor Wood, founder of the
club, has taken a keen Intered and
pride In Its development from the
day it was organised, November 2,
1916, to Its present podtion as one
of the leading theatre groups in
British Columbia. He humoroudy
recalls that the club was'born! on
the  Fairview   site   of   the   early
days, in a lecture room which was
later to become a maternity ward
o( the Vancouver Oeneral Hospital
The first play produced was taken on a tour to Westminster and
Victoria. Funds raised were used
to purchase sports equipment for
the lSeth Battalion of western
Canadian university students, stationed on the camftis at the time.
The tradition, begun in the fird
year of its existence, has been
steadily maintained, by the club,
as plays have year by year been
taken further afield Into the province. In this way the Players' Club
has served as a link between the
university and the interior.
The dub has always had a large
membership of out of town students. Common interests found in
the Players' Club have thus
brought together students from all
parts of British Columbia.
Notorious screwballs, the thes-
pians, in spite of long hours of
play rehearsing, keep up their
studies. Beverley Wilson of Nanaimo, club president, is an honors dudent and scholarship winner.
In her past two years at university
she has given outstanding performances, and her lead presentation
of "The Shrew" in the Shakespearian production, "Taming of the
Shrew" will long be remembered.
Beverley also played one of the
lead roles as the maid In "Gaslight," produced at the Banff Summer School.
Gerry Williamson, vice-president,
a leading actor of the club, is also
v>ell known in B.C. for his radio
Another out of town student,
Jim Argue from Cranbrook, fourth
year commerceman, fills the position of club treasurer. He has
1-lr.yed lead parts since first coming

mas Dorothy  Somerset
the  club,  auburn  haired  Felicity
Coope is in  charge of costumes.
Working behind the scenes, Chester Taylor is stage manager.
Although all faculties are rep-
, resented in Players' Club mem-
bersnlp a few former members
have chosen careers following up
their interest in acting developed
at UBC. Amongd these CBC programmes director Kenneth Cople
is a UBC grad, and former Players' Club member. Sidney Risk,
another Players' Club alumni who
returned after graduation to direct club productions, has recently
resigned his position as director oi!
drama at the University of Alberta to form a western Canadian
Acting Company, soon to tour the
province, and Western Canada.
Miss Dorothy Sommerset, for many
years director of Players' Club pre-
entations, and known throughout
D.C. for her work as head of the
Extension Department, this year
lias started a drama course at thc
Four Christmas plays are produced annually to give new members experience before the main
spring production. This year UBC
will be host to a western university drama festival, started last
ycar by Alberta University. The
Christmas plays will be entered
in the festival.
Homecoming 1946 has meant
more than just a sentimental return by grads to their Alma Mater.
It has produced an increased
realization in the importance of
the Oym Drive, and has shown that
UBC's grads as well as her students are solidly behind the Drive.
Although direct results of proceeds towards' the Gym Drive on
Homecoming Day are as yet unavailable, it has been well established that the rcponse was enthusiastic. For instance, the class
of '26 presented the Gym Fund
with $500. as a result of their work.
The class of '26 was one of those
decade class featured on Homecoming.
Homeocming Day fell on the
opening day of the Memorial Oym
Fund's renewed drive, and started
with a parade through the center
of the city. An advertising campaign over loed radio stations was
carried out, with the University
taking four of the stations.
In addition, a five-column ad
was inserted in each of the local
daily news papers.
Aggie Students
Further Surveys
The scientific study of agricul-
urd problems is the medium
through which more than five
hundred students contribute to the
welfare of British Columbia.
In the pad year, studies, surveys, and research projects have
been furthered by the Faculty of
Agriculture    under    Dean F. M.
Analysis of soil types has been
continued to give a better picturu
of the potential crop-producing
areas of the Province. Twenty
acres of land in the Salmon River
VaUey have been put under cultivation for seed production and
extensive research has been continued in this department.
Outside of the strictly academic
pursuit of knowledge, faculty
members and students have attended and aided the numerous fairs
and shows which have been hela
throughout the province. By thu
and other means, such as lectures
and special demonstrations of processes, Information has been disseminated to the farmers, dairymen, and other groups of people
engaged In occupations relative to
this faculty's work.
When it opened its doors on September 30, 1915, the
University of British Columbia was made up of three faculties: Arts and Science, Applied Science and Agriculture.
Early plans called for others, but as late as 1936 Bachelorates
and Master's Degrees were being granted only in the facul-

Boost Alma Mater Fees
Commencing in September 1947, undergraduate Alma
Mater Society fees will be raised from $13.00 to $15.00. Under
this system, the AMS will direct immediately to the Gym
Fund the sum of $5.00 for each student.

From Its inception tho university
has been enlarging and enriching
its curriculum.
In September 1948 the Faculty of
Law was added to the university.
Other additions in that year were
courses leading to degrees In Social
Wcrk. and Home Economics.
Tht ytar 1M6 saw the establishment of a myriad of now departments on tht eampus. Tht Department of Modem Languages was
divided into Departments of Spanish, French and Oerman.
Students now have the opportunity to study Russian  under Dr.
James O. St. Claire Sobell, in the
Department of Russian and Slavonic studies.
Architecture, Agricultural Engineering and Farm Mechanics are
other departments which have been
coated this year.
To supplement the new departments courses are now being offered leading to degrees in Engineering Physics, Food Technology, and Physical Education. The
courses started this year in Dra-
iv.ti'-e nnd Music Appreciation are
expected to form the nucleus of a
department of Fine Arts.
students Is expected to drop to a-
bout 8,500 during 1947-48. This
means that the dudent body by
his efiort alone will be contributing In the neighborhood of $42,000
To this can be added the surplus
of $8,000 from the Brock Hall bond
issue which is to be called In ui
March of next year. By October
1947, the Provincial War Memorial
Fund will have been boosted by
approximately $50,900.
This annual donation of $5.00 pet
capita through the AMS office it
expected to be continued until
the War Memorial Gymnasium U
paid for.
In the pad, the students of the
UBC have rdsed the sum of $180,-
000, with which were constructed
the present Gymnasium, the play-
ing field, the Stadium and, more
recently, the Brock Hall.

Mussoc Announces Cast;
Prepares For 'Pinafore'
Through the rise of the University from the "Fairview
Shacks" to the second university in Canada, has come the
second organization on the campus, the UBC Musical Society
which originated in 1916.
C. Haydn Williams, musical
director for the past 21 years, haa

all these years, and hat brought
It to its present high standard of
musical production.
Rehearsals are well under way
for the 18th consecutive light
opera presentation of Gilbert ana
Sullivan's perennial favourite "H.
M.S. Pinafore."
A precedent was established last
year In presenting five perform

tentative schedule has been drawn
up with five nights on the camp

It will be climaxed by a tour to
Kamloops and New Westminster
of sixty people including cast, instrumental, make-up, costume anu
stage conveners. ,
The UBC Glee Club, the largest
of its kind in Western Canada, is
also under the Musical Society.
Under the direction of Gerry MacDonald, LSE President, and C.

Campaign Quota
Set For Province
City of Vancouver business and
professional men will be asked to
contribute $200,000 toward the War
Memorial gym fund, when they are
canvassed by over a thousand UBC
students between November 4 and
16. i
Other quotas have been set
us follows:
Alumni  Association        $30,000
Faculty Association 15,000
Varsity   Students 55,000
Province of B.C.
(less  Vancouver) 50,000
A total of $500,000 is needed to
build the proposed structure, but
$150,000 was raised last spring.
All quotas have been set very
conservatively, according to John
Fleming, canvassing chairman. This
has been necessary in consideration
of the fact that many B.C. towns
are building their own memorials.
These are not asked to forsake
their own drives, but to offer UBC
as much support as they can. as
UBC's is a provincial memorial.
UBC Growth
Greatest Ever
The year 1947 wil see the large-
est program of building expansion
at the University of British Columbia since its inauguration thirty-two years ago.
With five million dollars, which
the Provincial Government has
set aside for the building program
as backing, the university plans
to have seven and possibly ten
major building operations under
way by next year.
On the building agenda, in the
order of their priority are the
following projects; a Physics building, a north wing for the Library,
several agriculture buildings, additions to the power house facilities, a new Applied Science building, a Pharmacy building, a Home
Economics * building, a Woman's
residence, a Gymnasium, a Medical Science building, the first unit
of an Arts building.
Three of these projects, the Physics and Agriculture buildings and
Library addition, are already under
construction and the others are
soon to follow.
Plans for the new Applied Science building are completed and
tenders will be taken this fall. The
estimated cost of this building will
be approximately $500,000.
Almost completed are the plans
for a two wing pharmacy and biological study building. The department of pharmacy, which wos inaugurated this fall, is at present
accomodated in centralized hut
units. A $25,000 grant was advanced
for the construction of this building by the .Cunningham Drug Co.
and better equipped buildings.
Plans are going ahead for the construction of both a Home Economics building and a new Gymnasium.
Construction of the Home Economics building received Its initial
impetus from the grant of 975,000
by the late Johnathan Rogers.
Financing of the gym however is
to be acomplished through public
subscription as was done in the
past for the Stadium, the Armory
and the present Gymnasium.
One and one half million dollars
have been set aside by the
Provincial government for the construction of medical buildings at
such time when the medical faculty
is established on the campus. Developments and plans regarding
this faculty are pending decisions
as to the type and position of the
medical school. Proposals are now
being studied by the university
board of governors.
At the beginning pf the 1946-47
session, four new departments were
inaugurated on the campus; they
were the departments of pharmacy,
architecture, home economics, physical education and forestry. Recommendations are now before
the board of governors for the
openings of a department, of jour-
nalism.and a faculty of medicine.
At present all these existing new
departments as well as the department of nursing and health, commerce, and the faculty of law are
accomodated in centralized hut
units. It is expected that after the
present building expansioin program all will have much larger and
better equipped buildings.
New Gym To Ease
Present Overflow
In keeping with the expansion of UBC, the Memoriax
Gymnasium emphasizes space in which to breathe.
When the world-famed Harlen,
Olobe-Trotters visited the University to play the Thunderbirds,
students overflowed from the seats
and doorways onto rafters and
skylights. The Oym now being
planned will seat seven thousand
spectators around its three-basket
ball court auditorium.
Harrassed students looking jot
some place to get a bit of exer-
rise during a spare moment will

hour dally program now in effect
and which gives only a limited
flumber of people necessary exercise. There will be recreational
space to play squash and handball, an opportunity to readily en
gage in boxing and wrestling, one
the ever-popular rifle end archery
ranges will be put in the basement.
At present, aquatically Inclined
Toties must travel down to Crystal Pool for a swim, but the new
Gym will have a pool surpassing
this both in size and convenience.
Specialists in various branches
of gymnastic arts will have more
facilities to use and more readily
acquired use of them.
Under the proposed facilities
there will be physio-therapy, sun
lamps, training, shower and dress-
Student "Efforts
Have Built UBC
The success of former student
projects about the University ol
British Columbia has proved that
the students are more than capable of undertaking a job such at
the erection of a War Memorial
Gym. •
Through the efforts in the pa*,
the first steps were taken toward*
the construction of the present U
BC were taken when the students
of the old Fairview School made
the famous trek in 1928 because of
conditions and delay in the construction of the new Point Grey
The Gym, opened formally at
Homecoming Ceremonies in 1929,
was financed mainly by student*.
Its contsruction during the summer of 1929 was the moans of employment for many UBC students.
In 1930 students considered the
construction of the Stadium and
playing field which was finally
finished Un October 1937. A greai
deal of the funds for this project
were raised at dances, pep-meets
nnd various ether activities.
The most hallowed building on
the campus, Brock Hall, was completed in 1940 and dedicated on
Homecoming Day, 1946, to the
memory of Dean and Mrs. Reginald Brock.
Students from outside Vancouver won N pec cent of all bursaries and loans awarded to UBC
students last term. Fifty-nine a-

ing rooms for those who simply
seek a little exercise, as well as
members of the Thunderbiro
Alumni will have offices and
leunge with faculty lounge and
shower rooms as features not now
to be found to compactly located
on the campus.
Aid Gym Drive
Campaigning for $500,00 to build
UBC's War Memorial Gymnasium
first began in the spring of 1946.
At this time Alan Ainsworth, chairman of the University War Memorial Committee and president of
the Alma Mater Society, announced
that the memorial would take the
form of a gymnasium.
Ainsworth and Ted Kirkpatrick,
junior member of Council guided
thirty-five committee members representing campus organizations in
the first spring drive. In all, $150,000
v.as raised, $45,000 in cash, $25,000
from the government of British
Columbia, $50,000 from the Board
of Governors of UBC, and $30,000
in pledges from friends of the university.
Rallies, committees of down-town
business leaders, dances, thirty
branches of Alumni, women's and
chMrch clubs assisted the drive to
raise as much as possible before
tho spring examinations and holidays.
An exibition of gold-fish swallowing received wide publicity.
This public demonstartion of student martydom was under the auspices of the renown Jokers Club
who contributed over *12M to the
worthy cause.
Now the fall drive is getting
under way in the capable hands of
the executive manager, J. D. McLeod, airforce veteran and UBC
With the construction of the new

only be possible with the conscientious support of the student

adjoining their present premises which was formerly
occupied as a restaurant.
They will operate this added space temporarily
as a Christmas Annex until the end of the year when
the necessary labor and materials for a complete remodelling and merging of the two stores will be more
readily available.
Meantime they invite your inspection of the many
lines of new and attractive merchandise which will be
on display within the next two weeks suitable for gift

They particularly wish to draw the attention of

assortment of really smart garments they have yet
They expect to receive shortly some lines of the
goods which are in such short supply, particularly
Hosiery, Lingeries, Winter Underwear etc., for women
and many lines of interest to men.
Needless to say they appreciate the splendid
patronage they are enjoying from the student body
and from their old and new customers and it will be
their endeavor to provide them with shopping facilities
and personal service which will warrant their continued confidence.

This special edition of the Ubyssey is
frankly designed to serve as one more appeal
to the people of British Columbia to support
the drive to build a War Memorial Gymnasium on the campus of the University of
Apart from its doubled size and circulation, this Ubyssey is actually "special" in
only one sense. It has been especially planned to show to the people of the province
who live outside of Vancouver just what a
prominent part their sons and daughters,
relatives, and friends, play in the life of
the University.
But, ss a good many people know, every
issue of the student newspaper telle that
game story. The undergraduates known on
the campus aa the "out-of-town students"
always achieve more at UBC than their
numbers might indicate, and every time the
Ubyssey appears it tells their story, Every
time a scholarship list Is issued, a graduation
li held, a game is played, an election ia held,
or a play is produced, non-Vancouver ttu-
dentg are in the spotlight.
This has always been the case since the
University of B.C. wu born. The usual
explanation is that those students, and their
hometowns, have put just a little bigger effort in getting them to the University in the
first place, and that once here they make the
best of their opportunity.
Individually, their families and home communities know about the honors won by the
men and women they send to UBC. Often,
however, they do not get a chance to see
just how great a force is the total of the
endeavors behind those honors. For that
reason, the Ubyssey staff, itself including
many out-of-town members, has attempted
this time to present a view of that total
Unfortunately, it can be only an attempt,
for the subject is so great that it would take
a whole volume to tell the story of UBC's
closest relatione with the province which it
tries to serve. e
That service grows greater year by year,
day by day. More and more deserving
students from all of B.C. are being enabled
to attend the University. At UBC an
expanded course of gtudieg ig giving the
students better and better preparation for
the years when they will become citizens of
the province. Each year, a larger number
of graduates are taking up taskg vital to
the growth of B.C.
This province haa ita greatest years ahead
of it, and the University will be related
intimately with Its progress.
There is a sincere belief on the campus
that construction of the proposed War Memorial Gymnasium will help the University
to be of better service to British Columbia.
The Mummery
Once again the Totem people are busy
with their fall bleating about students not
having their pictures taken for. the annual.
Year by year these Totem photos provide
you with poignant evidence of the ravages
of higher education—the gradually deepening furrows on the brow, the greying temples,
the hunted look about the eyes—until you
finally come to your graduation picture,
which turns out badly blurred as a result
of the involuntary twitch you've developed.
I once had a Totem picture taken, having
been convinced by the glib editors that I
should have something to prove I had been
to college. This ghastly testimony now leers
out of a frame atop our radio in the living-
room, and haa been directly responsible for
guests hurrying home to drag their children
out of university before it wag too late.
I didn't look forward to having my photo
taken. I never do. I'm the sort who, instead
of beaming when suddenly confronted by a
sidewalk candid camera, darts wildly out
into the road and is' run oyer by a heavy
lite photographer seemed to feel the same
way I did about it, but we were caught in
the toils of a superior force. Muttering to
himself, he led me into his studio and sat
me on a kitchen chair. He wheeled over a
gleaming new camera, then approached me
to study my face, first one side, then the
other, with his lips pursed and his mind
obviously swarming with doubts. Shaking
his head, he returned to the new camera,
moved it aside, and drew forth from a cupboard an elderly wooden camera doddering
on its splayed tripod. This antique he placed
before me. He had chosen me to administer
the coup de grace. He was playing it safe
with his equipment, the dirty coward.
"Sit up straight," he said.
My vertebrae grated against the spokes
of the chair, as he switched on the glaring
"Your right shoulder is lower than your
left," he announced, in a loud, flat tone
probably reserved for his deformed, idiot
clients. "Lift it up. Now, look at that wall."
I stared at the wall, but my eyes soon
strayed involuntarily back to the camera.
Sure enough, the photographer was draping
it in black crepe, throwing it into mourning
before it was even in focus.  He put his head
under the cloth, then hastily jerked it out,
his face white as a sheet.
"Try the other wall," fceeaid. "Quiok".
I uncorked the second profile. The white-
hot lamps were already beading my face
with perspiration, and I could sense the
points of my collar turning up like Persian
slippers. I felt vaguely like Humphrey
Bogart getting the third degree from the
"Smile," barked the photographer, and
my lips parted in a Bogart-type snarl of
defiance. You could see I wasn't going to
tell where I had hidden the secret plans.
You could also see that my twe upper front
teeth parted company at the roots and thereafter had nothing to do with one another,
creating an engaging gap for my tongue
to play in.
"Close your mouth." He sounded a bit
tired, now. Somehow I knew that he would
not ask me to watch for the birdie, not having a vulture in stock. He didn't. He snapped the shutter* while I wag gtill trying to
settle my aweat-smeared features into an
expreagion of intelligence.
Several weeks later I called for the results.
The photographer recognized me immediately, shrinking behind the counter.
"Do you want to see the proof?" he asked.
"What of?" I asked thickly, fearing that
the picture had revealed some trait that
linked me with Neanderthal Man. He presented me with a proof, saying: "We still
have to do some retouching, of course."
"Of course," I nodded, noting briefly that
I didn't photograph like a Man of Distinction.
I didn't photograph like a Man, even. Unless
the retoucher shaved me and shortened the
nose, I would go on record as the first Cocker
spaniel to get his B.A. from UBC.
Well, as I say, I have a print of that picture on the radio. My folks had it tinted by
a colorblind girl who needed the money,
and who gave my face a deep, ruddy hue
which compares too favorably with my
present complexion and awakens the visitor's suspicion that I am the victim of pernicious anaemia. Also, the green of the
collar ran a little, so that I seem to have
moss growing on the north side of my neck
Otherwise, it's a beauty.
Gwan, have your picture taken, I dare
Two Courtenay Students
Operate Unique Setup
Pals from away back, Jerry Macdonald and Jack Hough
have a working agreement that Jerry is to take care of the
literary and academic side of their activities while Jack
handles the athletics. A glance at the record shows that their
pact seems to be working as well as anything on the campus.
Both claim Courtenay as their
home and it is there that this friendship has its roots. Throughout
their high school and their university they have become what may
bo properly termed ''inseparables,"
a situation which may be largely
accounted for by their parallel interests in music, athletics and
scholastic activities.
Music seems to have played a
dominant part in both their lives.
Both play the sax and tiie clarinet,
but Jerry claims tiie piano aa his
In their scholastic efforts they
seem to have spilt the honors very
evenly. In 1943 Jerry was voted the
most outstanding all around student of Courtenay High School
while Jack made a follow-up with
the honor in 1M4.
In the athletic field Jack forged
ahead with Jerry running a clott
second. Basketball and skiing seem
to be his bright spots but he was
also very active in baseball, tooeer
and track and field.
With Vanity their respective interests flared forth again. Jerry is
at present in Sad year electrical
engineering while Jack sees a
medical career in the future.

Dear Lenny:
They often tell us, Lenny, that there is a
life after death. If there is, then you must
be sitting off somewhere just across the road
from this world, wondering what in heck
UBC is beating its brains out about this
If you're gtill cynical (I remember you
always liked taking pokea at hypocrites),
you are probably thinking: "Boy-O-boy,
that's just what I need, a 'living memorial'!
A gym, for instance, that you can all have
a damned good time in. Don't forget to put
my name on a scroll in tiie attic, though!"
The purpose of this letter, Lenny, is to
apologize to you and your comrades for
those (rare, I hope) people who regard the
whole memorial idea of the gym as just a
good healthy bluff to get money out of the
people of the province.
I admit that quite often you do have to
disguise things a bit; people might never
help us build a gym that didn't have a loftier
purpose than to provide floor-space for
basketball games.  If we were just building
a straight memorial, it probably wouldn't
cost half a million dollars, either.
But you were an athlete yourself, Lenny,
and can appreciate the tie-in. The trouble
was, too darned many good athletes were
lost in tho war and perhaps the main idea of
having a gym instead of a cenotaph ia that
the gym will help replace them. Perhaps, too,
the new physical education instructors and
community leaders whom the university now
intends to train will be a sincere tribute to
the value of athletics in buildiag fighting
hearts and real men.
We can talk about your fightiag heart
Lenn, because some of your crew-mates
brought the story back. We know about
your last trip; how some strange fate picked
you out; how you lived for a Uttls while,
knowing you weren't going home this time;
and how you died quietly in a cold impersonal aircraft.
So, Lenny, whatever the new gym means
to anyone else, it means memories ef you to
all your pals out at Varsity.

work is to be teen in many projects throughout the province. The
Department of Transport, and
such civic bodies as local watot
boards employ a good perctntagt
of graduates.
During tht war tht professors or
civil engineering made themstlvtf
available to the armed forces for
consulation work. Moot of the
wartime graduates became technical officers in tht army.
The university maintains a materials-testing laboratory which
haa contributed txtremtly valuable information to Industry hi
the past. A naw laboratory la proposed which will render even better service.
(Kamloops, B. q,)
The University of British Columbia was the first university in the British Empire to establish a degree course
in nursing.
This may aeem a startling statu- '
ment fer a comparatively young
university, but In the calendar for
1919-20 it is stated: "It has been
determined to establish a Department ot Nursing In connection
with the Faculty of Applieu Science." McOill and ToronW tst-
ablishtd their nursing depart-
mania in 1920 through the co-operation of the Faculty of Medicine in eaoh university. UBC hat
carried on her courses without a
medical faculty or a hospital under its direction since the days of
the Fairview shacks.
In 1919, owing to the Immediate
need for nurses in the public
health field, the Department of
Public Health was organized as a
separate department. This department offered a certificate course
to tiie graduate nurse aud wa»
later amalgamated with fhe nursing department. This waa the flrti
certificate course in public health
nursing to be offered at a unl?
vanity in Canada.
Tht Department of Nursing and
Public Health wu announced in
the Science building for many
years after moving to tht Point
Orey site. This year tht nurse*
art occupying converted army
huts near tht orchard. At in other faculties the classes art larger
than aver before with nurses
from army, navy, and airfares
taking advantage of re-establish-
meat grants,
By training nurtas in public
health work and in teaching and
supervision in schools of nursing,
tht University of British Columbia has contributed to th* jtalth
of the provinot as a vee*.

British Columbia's forest and
forest industries have been increased in value since the establishment of a Department of
Forestry at the University of
British Columbia in 1925.
Not only has the forest industr>
benifited by research done by the
department but also by the number of trained workers that have
graduated   from   tho   University.
Over 90 per cent of tht universities graduates have stayed in B.L.
engaged in forestry work tor either private industry or the Government.
Work on the replacement of B
C. timber resources has recently
been done by tho department,^-
der the authority of the B.C. Research Council, in the district
north of Haney.
Members of the staff of the faculty are often engaged in fact
finding surveys for industry. Included ln these surveys art, general forest resource surveys, topographical surveys, and silviculture and forest management surveys.
Most provincial research in
wood utilisation has been carried
on by tht Vancouver Forest Products laboratory, but tho Department of Forestry has co-operated
with this lab In some of its research.

One of the largest contributions
of the Electrical Engineering department to British Columbia is
providing for B. C.'s young people
the opportunity to get tho high
degree of training necessary in
technical fields.
The university has helped to keep
these high standards at tha tame

the department are members ot
the Examining Board of professional engineers.
Contributions ht the field of radar were made by eloctewl em

The population ot UBC is close

like to ask the people of Penticton

In the field of pure science University of British Columbia graduates have distinguished themselves in ways which
serve to benefit the world and British Columbia immeasurably, said Art Sager of the University Extension Department.
Graduates in Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Botany and
Zoology have contributed extensively to wartime research
and British Columbia industry.
- In wartime research, Dr. G. M.
Volkoff, a UBC grad, headed the
group of Canadian scientists who
helped in the development of tht
atomic bomb.
When tht physics building is
completed on tht UBC oamput it
will oontaln tht flats! lab for nuclear research ia Cawwlw, said Sager, and Dr. Volkoff will head the
scientists in totting applications of
tht by-products of tho radioactive
materials to medicine, agriculture
biology and ether fields.
Starting in the session of 1M5-46, a group
of male students on the campus of UBC
began to make a name for themselves. Originally only eleven In number, these veterans
soon gathered around themselves another
180 veteran and non-veteran students to
form the now world-famous Jokers' Club
of UBC.
Their name first became widely known
when, during inauguration ceremonies, Ace
Joker (president, that Is) Dave Hayward
was thrown Into a lily pond. A out on his
foot kept him in hospital for a time and put
the Jokers on the nation's front pages.
The Jokers then proceeded to put on two
or three stunts and the newspapers caught
hold of the idea. To quote Perth Webster,
present vice-president: "The papers got one
jump ahead of us and we spend the rest of
the year trying to keep up with them."
"Trying to keep up with them" entailed a
lot of work for thf Jokers. They had to prepare scripts for half-time entertainment at
all sports events on the campus, and at the
game time attempt to think up other stunts
so that they could retain their proper position ahead of the pi

Professor F. Latent, htad of tht

University of British Columbia.
Since Vancouver ia tht place
where the greatest building programs in tht provinot will bt carried out, tht department intends
to think in terms related to tht
scale of Vancouver at a growing
metropolis. It mutt bt dearly understood, however, said Prof. Lae-
erre, that "not only civic but also
rural types of building will bt
studied," and that there will be
a keen interest shown in town
planning problems of the province
as a whole.
Radio Operators
To Hold Meeting
British Columbia Amateur Radio
Operators Association will hold
their annual meeting on Wednesday November 6 at 8 pjn. in the
Double Committee Room in the
Brock Hall.
This association is an aggregation
of clubs in Vancouver and throughout the province. At Friday's meeting the Parent Association will be
guests of the club.
Each individual club is to have
two official representatives who
will be endowed with voting
powers. A cordial Invitation is ex.

to attend this meeting.
Goldfish swallowing returned to the Continent last year when Joker Paul Chutter
quailed one down as a Joker stunt. The
idea soon became a fad and an innovation to
the age-old art came when the Jokers persuaded a coed to swallow one. "No numbers
are available, but there was a distinct shortage of goldfish around here for a while,"
quipped Perth Webster.
Their name became known from London
to Manila.
From being a club originally designed
merely for competition in intra-mural gport,
the Jokers goon realized that they had tre-
mendoug potentialities. Their effortg became devoted entirely to the Gym Drive —
Speaking of Cards
to the tune of $4000. "Invasion" of New
Westminster, raffles, car parades, a show
in the Orpheum theatre, Joker ball, roller-
skate marathon, their big support of Visitors' Day and many "stunts" added pep and
money to the university's memorial drive.
Still keeping their eye on their original
idea, the Joker'a sportsmen copped for their
many teams the cup for the highest aggregate points in the intra-mural setup. Prominent on this year's list of sportsmen are
footballers Rex Wilson, Dmitri Goulebef,
Gus Sainas, Dave Storey; hoekeyist Bob
Smith; English ruggermen Harvey Allen,
Barry Morris; tennis player Dave Sparling
and swimmef Lou Atwell.

Many important contributions
have been made to other fields by
UBC graduates. Dr. R. C. Palmar,

for killing many of the fruit trees,

Even the Jokers get embarassed occasion

of land for their use. Council referred the
matter to President MacKenzie who, with
tht Board of Governor'g stamp of approval,
gave them the land. Intended only as a

Co-ed Sport Corner
A recent poll among the members of the Publication
Board sports desk disclosed the fact that very few women
had written a column for the Sports page; complete foreigners
from the City desk—yes. But few women. Come boys, something must be done about this. The coed is indubitably here
to stay.
Let us cheer for the little coed who broke through the
Varga covered wall surrounding the Sports Editor's desk.
My career as a pubster has been short and slightly involuntary. A freshette, faced with the incontrovertible fact
that articles were a prerequisite to not being evicted from
the Pub, I rather offhandedly wrote some excellent articles
on coed grasahockey, tennis, indoor track and other games
which UBC coeds are continually occupied with.
The Sports Ed. Matters
Our late, great Sports Editor, whose body is still un-
buried somewhere in the campus, pushed my career along
rapidly. This year's boss, a different type altogether, will,
appreciate a picture of Lena the Hyena for his Varga girl
collection tmore than my thanks for his smoothing my path
with his little pneumatic drills.
I do not profess to be a long-frustrated columnist. I do
not even profess to be a sports scribe. But, I will not proceed
to romp merrily through an account lof 'my day', to fill it
with something, you understand. Actually, Sports Editors
frown on it, and besides, Mother thinks I still go to lectures.
A column hiding in the Sports page should chatter on
some sporting subject. The one at hand, and inviting the
best possible comeback is the Gym Drive.
The Girls Are Interested
Contrary to rumors spread by first and second year coeds
(who are obliged to take P. E. and loathe it because swimming ii the only thing that will fit their timetable and the
Crystal Pool is ten miles away), UBC women students are
quite as strongly interested in the Memorial Gym Drive as
uie men.
We women seem to get the small end of the stick rather
often. Take, for instance, the case of the Women's Rifle club
who long for a decent range on the campus; the hoop girls
who sigh for a gym where they and the men will have a
practice court apiece, and the little coeds who struggle with
their girdles in the cramped locker room.
There are 1800 women students at UBC; approximately
half of them take some form of Physical Education. There
are three hoop teams, three grass hockey teams, several
swimming classes, scores of badminton-minded lassies, prospective champion archers and fencers. Were opportunity
provided, might not many more of our coeds, reluctant to
squabble over the gym floor or trek down to the Crystal
pool, become fanatical sporsters and bring fame to the hall
of our Memorial Gymnasium?
Intramurals Are (Thriving
And now a few words about the Intramural system. It
can hardly compare to the men's system in size, but its
scope is just as large and includes all the aforementioned
sports as well as bowling, softball, plus indoor and outdoor
track events.
Speaking of outdoor track reminds us the UBC sportsmen and women move indoor at this time, pursued by
Vancouver's imported Queen Charlotte Islands mist.
Wind and weather will not bother us in our new gym-'
nasium, so forward, girls, on with the Camgaign! And remember, boys, when you're making up those ambitious plans
for the Memorial Gym, never underestimate the power of
a womon or a UBC coed with a trophy just beyond her reach.

Future Greats
The Boxing Club has followed
a very checkered career on the
campus but it's sporadic character seems to be definitely settling
down into a steady life.
The club has a strong slate of
fighters to enter the field this year.
Numerically, the lightweight class
is the best represented, through the
heavy class has a strong contender
in Phil Olson, last year's club
president and runner-up for the
West Coast Golden Gloves Heavyweight title. Olson is a heavy hitter who haild from Hope, B.C.
Fleming McConnel will represent
the novice entry in this class.
John Hamilton is filling the
middle weight bill since Art Beaumont made his exodus to the welter division where he carries one
of the bright hopes of the club for
a title this seaaon.
The lightweight class has a strong
panel of talent. Southpaw Wally
Gray, present club president, holds
top spot.
Danny Oliver looks good in
workouts and plenty of speed is
carried by Jim Casey. A few fights
will give Jim the necessary experience to put him in the top
notch bracket. Len Turner rounds

team, in the girls' opinion. Playing
center spot with Mearnie is Dave
Campbell's sister, Doreen, who
holds record height in the team.
Guards Daryl and Dorothy Vincent will be familiar to hoop followers from their performances
with Shores last year. These identical twins are so hard to tell
apart that they have to be numbered 6 and 9.
Rounding out the group are Nora

perfection. Daily cross-country
races, Friday night calisthenic
classes and week-end skiing classes
when snow conditions are suitable,
are the rules laid down by Peter.
Several dozen noted skiers, like
Garvin Robinson, Arnie Teasdale,
Gordy Cowan, Don Anderson, John
Frazee, Gerry Reynolds, Denny
McKimn and many others are
turning out for practices like clockwork and, if they don't win, it
won't be from not trying.
A heavy ski schedule, starting
this Sunday at Mt. Baker, will get
the actual skiing lessons under
way. Another first for UBC will be
a special ski train expedition
which will include every member
of the Ski Team and many VOC
members. It will leave for Revel-
stoke around December 27 where
special instruction on jumping,
slalom and downhill will be carried out under direction of Mr,
Other instruction will be carried
out on Grouse Mountain .starting
early in January. Vajda will be
assisted in these undertakings by
several qualified members of the
ski team.
Additional lectures on ski technique, ski safety and other important facts will be carried out on
the Campus at a later date.

When the two groups finally met

weight and experience of the Varsity team triumphed.
Both teams feature veteran Ruggers who are well known on the

The maple court experts are at

of the V and D Basketball League
downtown last month, the student*
have taken to tossing around the
old melon again. The Birdmen
have not and will not be playing
any conference games until after
Christmas, but their little brothers ln the Inter B, Inter A, and
Senior B Leagues will be well on
the road to victory by that time.
The Inter B hoopsters had a little trouble getting started, but
now that they are on their way,
arid under the able tutelage ot
Coach Frank Turner, good results
are forecast.
The Inter A league was filled
to overflowing from the first
practice held. The freshman laddies have already played a few

from a victory over Arrows last
Thursday night.
The Inter A upperclassmen have
had one loss in one start, but this

Reid, Nesbitt Star As Varsity Enters
Northwest Conference Football Loop
Thunderbird football entered a new phase this season, when Varsity switched its alle*
giance from -the Western Intercollegiate Union to the Pacific Northwest Conference. The
change, pointing towards an eventual affiliation with the bigtime Pacific Conference loop,
entailed an alteration in football tactics to the American code, with its quicker pace and
field-length blocking.
The Blue and Gold after completely dominating the basketball setup in the PNWC last
season went into the grid season as heavy underdogs. Coach Greg Kabat, pilot of the 1945
edition of the Thunderbirds who swept to the Hardy Cup at the expense of the University
of Alberta Golden Bears, had many handicaps to overcome.   Not the least of these wag the

some of the clubs, have been passed by the intramural committee.
These rules state "that any member of a Varsity team which engages in outside competition, shall
not be allowed to participate in
that sport in Intramurals," and
that, "no man playing American
Football or English Rugby shall
be allowed to play touch football
in the intramural setup."
These rules were drawn up because it was felt that if a man
plays on a Varsity team he will
be getting all the play he needs,
whereas others have an opportunity to play In intramurals only.
The volleyball league is well under way now, and It is hoped
that in about a week or so the
scores can be posted. Touch football is also being played at present.
The basketball season will not
be officially under way until after
Christmas, but lots of enthusiasts
can be seen in the Gymnasium,
practicing their shooting and passing. Basketball Is probably one of
the main sports that will be effected by the new ruling, that outside players can not play intramurals.
Fish, Game Club
Latest Addition
Newly organized on the campu*
is the Fish and Game Club, brain
child of Ralph Shaw, former president of the Calgary Junior Fish
and Game Association.
The Club already has a membership of approximately 50 members, with indications showing
plenty more to come. All of the
students have their own special
interests, but whether their tastes
lie in fishing, duek shooting, or
big game stalking, they will have
their appetites filled through benefit of the club's various subdivisions.

their Inaugural game in the Pacific
Coast Junior Hockey League, the
University of British Columbia
Thunderbirds are not overly discouraged.
They point out that the Spots

are having trouble icing a team
that fits the requirements of this
over-under age league.
Teams must be composed of seven players of junior age and the
other seven must be under 23 years

Stewart Johnson, smooth-skating
forward from Copper Cliff, promises to be a great help to the Blue
and Gold. Jim Bowledge, a last

two other forwards who turned
in speedy performances last Wednesday night.

What is it that makes coUege life what it is? Whatever
that certain something is, a great deal of it is shown at a
footbaU game when the Stadium grandstand is thronged with
screaming coUege guys and gals, banners streaming out,
and two great teams colorfully arrayed on a green turf—
fighting with all they have for the Alma Mammy. Yes, there
seems to be some link between that intangible "coUege spirit"
and the "world of sport"
And for that very reason, Bob Osborne has done a great
deal to put sport on a big time scale on the campus during
the last two years.
Last year, it was basketball that brought Varsity into e
higher operations in the world of sport.. This year, with the
entry of Varsity into the Pacific North West Conference
American footbaU schedule, UBC has taken one more step
towards higher recognition.
Mitt Fortune Hat Frowned
It's very true that the team has not had too much luck
as yet, but when we remember that this is the first year that
the boys have ever played the American code, they are doing
a great job. No team has as yet "slaughtered" the Blue and
Gold squad. AU of them have been impressed by the show
put on by our lliunderblrds.
However, ii can not be said that Varsity has not played
basketball before. Last year, they went out and proved it to
the teams ln the Conference by trouncing them all soundly
and walking of! the maples after the final game with the
honours tucked safely away.
So now the 'Birdmen are nearly ready to take to the
maples again to defend their hoopla title against teams which
have been strengthened a great deal since last year. Although many of the old reliable stars have left, mere are
plenty of promising newcomers who have returned from
last year's roster.
Breathing It Forbidden
Once again, we come to the old problem of where we
aro going to put the fans that want to see the Thunderbirds
in action. It is rumoured that the gym will hold 1500 fang
but that doesn't allow for breathing apace.
That isn't the only reason that UBC wants a gym. Imagine a coUege with a population of 8,000 with a gym that
can have approximately 50 people on the floor at one time.
That means that there are sue men at each of the hoops
and the rest are playing marbles in the small circle in the
centre of the floor.
The plans for a new gym would include a swimming
pool, geparate hoop courts, voUeybaU and handbaU courts
and aU the other things that a good gym should have. AU
this and room for 8,000 enthusiastic fang to git and yeU for
the dear old Blue and Gold.
A Gym It Mott Suitable.
Besides, what could be a more suitable War Memorial.
It's something that the University needs that the Province
can be proud of.
I heard a story recently about a group of youngsters
that have a club called the "6400" club because they live in
that block on West 13th Ave. here in the city.
Every year, for the past four years, these kids have had
some kind of a carnival to raise money for the Red Cross
or some other worthy cause.
Last spring, a representative of the club walked into the
gym and produced $25.00 that he said was to be put towards
the Gym Fund.
They Did Their Part
The members of that club received nothing for their
thoughtfulness except a receipt and a thank you. Yet they're
happy because they know that they have helped to buUd
a gym that they wiU be able to use some day.
It t>eems to me that they deserve a lot of credit. When
a bunch of youngsters can be so interested, surely the rest
of us can get behind this thing and push it over the lop.
But then I guess talking can only do so much. Action
is more to the point. Just remember, Tuum Est.—It's up
to YOU.    '

Kayoes 'Bird Grid Squad
TACOMA—Not even a 175-mile jaunt by a foUowing of
faithful fans was sufficient to cast the UBC Thunderbird grid
team out of the depths of cellar-dwelling despair. The inexperienced underdogs of the Pacific Northwest Inter-Collegiate
football loop went down in a 34-6 deluge when they met the
CoUege of Puget Sound Loggers at Tacoma on Saturday
38a=g= afternoon.
Big Four Battle
Still Unsettled
Decisions by tho UBC Thunderbird grid team and the University's athletic directorate may yet
stand in the way of tha proposed
challenge game between the top
team in the Big Four grid loop
and the American-coded aggregation.
Either the 'Birds themselves or
the directorate has the power to
give a thumbs down to engaging
in such a short notice affair against the Canadian-playing pigskin artists.
'Bird coach Greg Kabat would,
in the event of the Big Four challenge being accepted, have only a
scant six days to remould his
charges into a reasonable facsimile of a Canadian team. Such reorganization would include the addition of a blocking back, since in
American grid there just ''ain't no
such animal."
There is more than one reason
that the Thunderbirds might answer the challenge with a definite
negative, since it is the policy of
the team to play only Inter-collegiate games. Exams, too, /rill be
giving the gridders more tnan enough to think about right at th<
time when the proposed contest
would have to be played.
The Men's Athletic Directorite
of the University hopes that the
proceeds ot such a battle, if such
game ever' comes off, would gi
to swell the coffers of the UBC
Memorial Gym Fund. Whether the
officials of the City League would
play under these conditions is not

9POON GIVES HW ALL-Altheuih.'the UBC fifteen
waa unable to stem the Rowing Club advance, Hilary Wother-
spoon, the student's fullback, saved the campus honor on
more than one occasion in the Stadium Saturday afternoon.
Spoon's educated toe and broken field running may very well
lend him a berth* on the Thunderbirds next spring.
Campus Ruggermen split the weekend bill as Varsity
shut out Meralomas 6-0, and last place Rowing Club got its
first win, 12-11 over UBC.
At Brockton Bowl, rugby fans witnessed one of the best
games of thc season as the two league leaders gave their all
for a win. «_»^_——————
Varsity was not scored upon although 'Lomas threatened throughout most of the game and on three
occasions had good opportunity to
score on penalty kicks. Ace 'Lorna
booter Jock White couldn't get
control of the ball, however, and
the campus men mantained their
In the first half Russ Latham
scored on a penalty kkk for the
first points, and at the half the
score was still 3-0.
In the second half the two teams
turned on their power. Sparked by
Holden, the 'Lorna three line
tlireatened many times but Varsity
fullback Bill Dunbar saved the
day on more than one play.
Led by fast moving forwards,
the students msde the score 6-0
when Gerard Kirby went over the
line but the kick was wide.
Holding the three line together
was diminutive Pete Hobson, who
turned in a stellar performance
until he was Injured half way
through the game. In the second
period the play fell more on the
forwards. Alex Carlyle, tht two
Kirby's, and Hart Crosby showed
up particularly well.
The backfield played a steady
game, particularly In the first half,
and all the threes had a share In
the battle.
In the Stadium, a handful of
spectators watched a renewed
Rowing Club fifteen walk all over
an outclassed UBC squad. Although UBC threatened to tie the
score in the last few minutes of
the game, they lacked polish in the
first half and appeared disorganized
throughout most of the game.
Taking a penalty kick in the
opening half, Rowers opened the
scoring early, and had soon crashed
over for two more trys. UBC scored finally when Jack Armour raced
over on the end but the attempted
convert was no good.
In the second half th« campus
crew settled down a little but after
a fumble near centre field, the red
.shorted Rowers made no mistakes
and after a five-yard scrum, went
over again. None of their kicks
were good. Varsity ran up a few
more points when Tisdale went
over, and later Buddy Lott plunged over again. George Biddle split
the posts for the convert.
