POLKA-DOT pulchritude like this is just a
ample of what may be expected at Mardi Gras this
Ibursday and Friday at the Commodore. The
tecious lovelies displayed in these pictures are
ambers of the high-kicking chorus which will
etertain customers at the Ball on both evenings.
Split into two sub-choruses, the 'Tall Girls' and the
Sort Girls', the co-eds have been practising every
evening for weeks and now have everything (they're
going to put straps on those costumes) under control.
Demonstrating the ease with which one can relax
in one of these seemingly dangerous outfits, Mary
Phelan, tall gal, reclines gracefully in the centre
picture, surrounded by a beautiful bevy of her
fellow chorines.
On the upper right, more tall girls form a charming
semi-circle which includes Shirley Woodward, Trish
Rogers, Lorna Irving, Connie Liddel, Topsy Russel
and Bev d'Easum. Below them, Mary Hammond,
Sylvia Dyson and Charlotte Corbitt, three small
girls, are snapped in the midst of their "Strolling
Through the Park One Day" routine,.which would
be a big civic improvement to any park. On the
upper left, some more of the tall gals lean into their
work as they flick their bustles and smile prettily
for Arthur. These girls include Joan O'Flaherty,
Casey King, Mary Phelan again, June Reid, Daphne
Black and Dorothy Robertson.
In the last picture, fellow dancers seem to have
spots before their eyes as Jeanne Willcox mugs it
for the cameraman. The girls are all members of
the short girl chorus. Costumes for both choruses
were designed by Casey King.

Chilean Likes    All New Jokers Called
UBC, Canada
SOUTH AMERICAN university
studsnts who receive examination
results around the New Year festive season, have "balm" for their
ruffled feelings, in the form of
presents, according to Ron Webster, first ycar Arts student formerly of Antiofagasto, Chile.
Ron, who served in tho <tCAF
and tho army 15 months prior to
enrolling at UBC "because he likes
it here," says that a South American New Year is the appropriate
time to exchange Christmas presents, and that Santa Claus has
been cut out of the affections of
South American children by thc
"Three Wise Men."
Webster, who intends to study
chemical engineering here "maybe," worked his way up to Canada
from Chile 1o join the RCAF, as
a mess-steward and general dishwasher at a lavish salary of a
penny a month.
"They weren't nllowcd to carry
passengers," he explains.
British Columbia ,and the university are "just fine" for Ron,
but ho isn't sure about the rest
of Canada.
' "Ontario i.s all right," ho concedes," even though I wanted to
£0 right back home when I saw
my first Toronto snowstorm."
He has decided to remain here
permanently.

To Gathering Of Clan
DO YOU want to be a Joker?   You must be an idiot.
But don't let me deter you, be unirihibited, go ahead, be
an idiot, bring your dollar to Science 300 Thursday noon,
see if I care.
After all, who wouldn't be a
Joker, it's tho easiest thing in the
world to do, it's even easier than
taking poison, and why don't you,
any poison.
Anyone can be a Joker. Take o
look ot Bcnslcy. You can't stand
it? That's all right, his father
couldn't either. We took him in
thc Jokers didn't we? His mother wouldn't keep him, but we
did.
The call has gone out for all
Jokers to meet ot the above time
and place. Nobody knows where
the coll came from. Maybe tho
McHayward is gatnerlng the clan,
or maybe the provlnical exterminator wants to make a clean sweep
but anyway thc call is out ond all
present and prospective Jokers are
expected.
Dramatics Course
Offered At UBC
SIGNIFICANT in tho history of
UBC is the establishment of a
new dramatics course for both
winter and summer sessions of the
university.
The course marks tha first advancement toward establishment of
a fine arts faculty in the university since it is thc first Arts subject offered en curriculum. To be
given for the first time at thc
summer session, the course will
give three credits. At the summer
session thc, course will be under
the Little Theatre, whioh has obtained a national reputation. During the winter the course will bo
under the English Department.
Covering every field of the theatre,
and practical experience In acting
and the production of a play, the
course will probably be called
Dramatics I.
Miss D. Sommcrset who has a
wide range of experience in England and the North American continent has been chosen to head
thc course. At present Miss Sommcrset is studying courses given
in Dramatics ot leading US colleges, under a Rockefeller Foundation award.
CUP Poll Studies
Costs Of Living
IN THE NEAR future, thc Canadian University Press poll to establish thc cost of living at Canadian universities will begin.
This project, in spite of the ex-'
pert help of professors, will be a
complete failure unless the students co-operate fully.
At present plans call for tho
circulation of a carefully drawn
up questionnaire by a group of
Investigators on every campus.
This questionnaire will list all thc
expenses incurred by thc students
during thc college year.
PANEL TOPIC
THIRD panel topics for the
Ubyssey Forum will be "Your
opinion on the formation and
recognition of branches of national
political parties on the campus".
Any student ls invited to contribute an article not exceeding 700
words on the topic and the best
four will be printed in the Ubyssey
"What Is Your Opinion" column.
No articles were received on "Canadian • US Relations, the second
forum topic.

will be four or five cartoons to
round off an excellent evening's

The Film Society were well
satisfied with thc turnout for last

Legion Seeks
Job Bureau
BRIEFS will be submitted by
the AMS and Canadian Legion to
the Board of Governors at its
next meeting, January 28, recommending formation of a permanent
employment bureau, as outlined in
the Legion's open meeting Thursday.
It has been found that a students' employment bureau cannot spend time to cover the job
properly, although Helen Duncan
and her associates in the AMS
office have done much good work.
UBC's Legion branch recommends a director and assistant,
trained interviewers and secretarial staff, all on a permanent
basis. In an additional recommendation un advisory committee
would be set up to consist of
business men and employment
executives, faculty members and
student representatives.
It as also recommended that this
advisory committee be set up as
soon os possible to lay groundwork for thc director as soon as
he arrives, and to take care, in
part, of summer employment.
This employment bureau is put
forward as a permanent service on
the campus to assist students In
finding graduate as well as summer employment.
'Have Fun' Says
Dr. H. V. Warren
"STUDENTS should have a hell
of a lot of fun." This statement by
our champion of the student body,
Dr. H. V. Warren, of the Dept. of
Geology and Geography, met with
the agreement of all present at the
Friday meeting of SPC.
Speaking on "University Education — Why?" Dr. Warren advocated the need for a common basis
of experience as, a means of better
understanding our fellbw man.
Dr. Warren stressed the very
useful part extra-curricular activities play in university education.
Residences, not dormatories were
advocated as a necessary part of
the university.
Commenting on the present setup, Dr. Warren said, "University
education is not possible under
present conditions."
CHINESE ARE
IN DIRE NEED
OF ISS HELP
TORONTO, Jan 22 — (CUP) — A grant from this
continent is the only hope for preserving the lives of thousands
of underfed students in the coastal universities in China due
to a financial and food crisis, according to a cable received
recently from Rolland Elliot of World Student Relief, now in
China.
Thousands of underfed students
make promptest financial assistance essential, Mr. Elliott continues, urging Canadians to transmit immediately all available
money .
World Student relief is a global
organization which administers
funds from International Students
Service and other student organizations engaged in relief work.
It attempts to minuter to the needs
cf millions ot students in Europe
and Asia who have suffered war
privation.
REHABILITATION
Proceeds of a campaign soon to
be held in Canadian universities
by ISS will be primarily devoted
to this purpose. Chinese appropriation will buy necessities of life
fo rstudents as well as beginning
rehabilitation work in connection
with the removal of universities
back to their original sites.
Winter of 1844-45 was the most
difficult for students of the entire
eight years of war according to
Hnn Lih Wu, secretary of ISS committee in China.
INFLATION
Cost of living rose to unprecedented heights and unfavorable
military situation meant that tens
of thousands again evacuated had
to take refuge in temporary quarters wherever they could find
shelter. Now, while the war is
ended, there are still tens ot thousands of refugee students who siill
need immediate relief and it is
believed that educational rehabilitation will take a year to eighteen
months.
Medical records show that in
Shaping Pa University, Chunking,
nine percent of the students are
tubercular or show signs of being
so. Many more are in generally
poor health.
Relief funds are being used for
nutritional aid on a huge scale but
this still means a pitifully small
amount for the Individual student. One egg a day, or a meat
dish added to meals is the limit of
this work.
The Chinese government is subsidizing.a hundred and ten thousand students with rice and other
food allowances at a cost of $600
millions (Chinese) a month, due
to inflation. For instance, in Kunming, rice allowed for each student costs $9200 and other food
$3000 dollars, totalling $14,200 per
student per month,
In addition thc government pro
vides students with a uniform and
coat,    approximating   $15,000   for
each student.
NUTRITION POOR
Despite subsidies few have adequate food or shelter. Next to
nutrition the second problem is
dclousing for student dormitories
and beds to prevent discomfort and
spread of disease.
Han Lih Wu reports happily
they have been able to buy some
DDT, which has been found very
effective and at the same tine
work is being carried on in liberated areas.
The ISS committee is trying to
start a new student centre in Nanking which will begin relief work
in that area.
A transient station for students
wishing to return to their homes
is another project.
All these activities require large
sums of money and Canadians who
contribute to ISS campaign can
rest assured that funds being collected will be spent in a worthy
cause.
Pre-Optometry
Club Organized
PRE-OPTOMETRY students on
the campus have now joined forces
with the Pre-Medical Undergraduate Society and are initiating a
campaign for optometry courses in
conjunction with future Medical
School plans.
First meeting of the pre-optom-
ctry club was held Friday and
elections for club officers who will
had the club campaign will take
place noon Friday, January 25, in
Arts 102. There are now 16 members In the club.
"An average of 5 or 6 students
only are accepted each year in
optometry ot the University of
Toronto," Gerry Hilton, club
spokesman, told the Ubyssey Friday. This means that UBC pre-
optometrists have no assurance of
being able to continue their education.
Tiie nearest college of optometry
available is at Los Angeles, but
servicemen taking pre-optometry
courses arc faced with the problem of losing their educational
grants if they travel across the
line, according to Hilton.
The club has enlisted the support of downtown men for their
future campaign. ■-■a,.--. ..,-.■ ^--u^^MriaA^'i,.^

THE UBYSSEY, Tuesday, January 22, 1946, Page 2
Financial Incongruity
EDITORIAL PAGE
LETTERS To The Editor
111
The right of students to self-government
is an inailiable privilege which has been
exercised vigorously and enthusiastically by
"University of British Columbians. In the
past, even though, student-governed financial administration has zoomed into the big
business bracket, the students have always
managed their office administration, even
though treasurers have come in one door
and out the other at the end of the year.
But the trend is changing and the coffers
of the Alma Mater are swelling and will
continue to swell with the registration for
the next two years; and unless students
either take their AMS elections more seriously or else investigate thoroughly establishment of a full-time permanent AMS
office manager and bookkeeper, or both,
with nominal office and financial administrative powers, student government might
not run as smoothly as it has this year.
Candidates for the 1946-47 council should
investigate their own capabilities carefully
before committing themselves to serve as
administrators of a 100,000 dollars a year
business. •
This year, students have managed their
financial administration very capably, and
apart from the fact that a permanent office
manager would subtract four hours from a
treasurer's 24 hour day; employment of one
or two such full-time officers has not been
strictly necessary.
However, every business office demands
continuity in administration, and since
100,000 dollars is the approximate amount
flowing into the AMS treasury every year,
students have got to figure out a method
whereby they take their student elections
seriously, and tighten up rules governing
candidacy or else an office manager will
have to be employed, not only as a means of
easing some of the tremendous burden of
small nagging details from the shoulders of
the treasurer and president, but also to act
as a safeguard to student financial administration if; by any chance, student officers
are incapable of handling their jobs. He, in
emergencies could lead the way for inexperienced councillors by pointing out what has
been done in the past.
In any case, an office manager would provide the needed continuity, and the installation of such an officer should be mulled over
thoroughly by the incoming bookkeeper.
The stipulation should be, of course, that
these permanent officers have nominal powers only, and perhaps the one argument
against non-student bookkeepers and office
managers is that students will lose partial
control of their affairs. The fear that such
a job might lead to establishment of a permanent treasureship of the AMS by a non-
student who would control student affairs,
lurks in the minds of student councillors.
This has happened at McGill and other
large universities.
However, the two stenographers and one
combination bookkteper and office mariager
employed in the AMS this year, have not
overstepped their bounds and have worked
well despite considerable lack of student
co-operation. Students still own and administer their own money and they always will.
No one can deny them the right.
Democracy is a fine thing and UBC students may well be proud that they govern
their finance, but lack of continuity in management, which would be thought absolutely
incongruous in a business office, is the inescapable problem the Alma Mater Society
faces. Full time permanent office managers
and bookkeepers with nominal administrative powers might safeguard the students'
financial democracy in the event of an inexperienced council. The university is now
so large that no voter can possibly know the
capabilities or incapabilities of all the candidates he votes for.
Economic Pied Piper
Veteran groups in the city said many interesting things last week. Ex-service leaders are currently worrying about the fact
that at the termination of government sponsored and paid university courses, veterans
will follow an old Canadian vocational custom and travel across tho line to seek
American jobs and American futures.
The veterans have their finger on something, and despite the fact that Canada is
paying for their educations, many would
reveal in a cross-section poll that their eyes
vocationally are turning to the south. The
percentage of non-service university emigrants has always been high and Legion
groups may well worry about the service
situation.
Canadian business men are perhaps the
only Canadian "Dutch-boy-with-finger-in-
dyke" group which will be able to convince
Medicine Again
WIELDING an editorial cudgel in favor
of immediate establishment of a Medical
faculty at the University of British Columbia, the Vancouver Daily Province declared
Saturday that, "The next faculty to come *s
a faculty of medicine .... and tho faculty
of medicine cannot wait for permanent
buildings.   It must get started next fall."
The editorial declares that "Canada is
under an obligation to some hundreds of
returned men who wish to study medicine.
the veterans that their future lies in Canada.
Schools and universities also can do a great
deal to break down this apologetic and
everywhere apparent "I'm a Canadian" attitude. How often have young high school
and university graduates heard tho story,
"But there's no future for your type of
work in Canada. There are bigger fields
across the border."?
If the veterans themselves recognize the
danger of the American vocational lure,
half the Canadian battle is won. Veterans
who are willing to invest their future a second time in their own country, will, in a
generation, provide a solid base for an economically and culturally self-contained Canada. If thc veterans do this, then tho qov-
■ eminent can't go wrong by providing (hem
all with full educations in all branches of
learning and research.
The eastern and prairie colleges have duties
to the students of their own provinces."
"They cannot continue to offer facilities
to students from the coast. We must train
our own doctors and wo must begin now,"
tho cditorlul omphuslzos.
The editorial concluded by demanding that
the Legislature at its coming session, grant
the money necessary to inaugurate the
faculty in the fall. .

CHEERS AND THE MAMOOKS
A  HARRIED  Mamook,   George  Bloor,
cheer-leader, minced into the Pub yesterady.
He was worried. He was sick. And he
wasn't quite sure what he should do about
it. But he did have an idea. And it should
work.   And here it is:
The way he figured it, the Thunderbird
basketball and rugby teams are great. He
thinks, as we all hope, that they will really
go places. But he figured that the appallingly low turnout of cheering Varsity
students at the games makes things hard
for them.
Friend Bloor says that all they want is
about 10 percent of the student body out at
games. And this 10 percent should be
actively cheering. The figure they have
worked out for present attendance is around
3 percent.   Disgusting, isn't it?
Tho Mamooks figure the Jokers have the
right idea, but they aren't always predictable. What tho campus needs is not only n
club like tho Jokers, but a spirited student
body. That shouldn't be hard to get from
the second largest university in Canada.
Bloor Throws a Pepmeet
The Mamooks tell me that they will stage
a pep-meet Friday noon. This will be held
to spirit up the guys and gals for the games
Friday and Saturday nights. And, the
Mamooks will try once again to get the
students to cheer.   It's not so hard, really.
The way the Mamooks figure it is that
if the students who attend pen-meets would
also attend games, in a cheering capacity,
their worries would be over. Let's give
them hope.
Oh, by the way — the Mamooks have
done something concrete about it, too. They
have organized a cheering section of their
own. If you are interested, I don't think
they will be disappointed if you drop down
to the Rainbow Room and tell them you're
willing to go along.
If you wish, you can see them about it
Thursday, 12:30 in Arts 100. The Cheering
Section will get organized then for the
coming Conference Games.
How's about it, Joe UBC?
(See story on page 1)
Dear Madam:
I thank you for clarifying my
hitherto hazy ideas as to just
what a newspaper's functions nro.
For some renso* * nave always
entertained thc obvious silly notion that nil newspapers are supposed to do is to publish 5 per cent
muddled information "and 95 per
cent drool. Thanks to your nobb
correspondent's work in your i<-
sue of January 12, I have come to
seo the error of my thoughts.
The writer of "Nika Turn-Turn"
(which always reminds me of
"Turn-Turns for Your Tummy," or
something like that) is the educated gentleman who has led mo
from the fog. In his Saturday
column he has furnished us with
the material for an authoritative
book on journalism. With a little
more padding he would have an
excellent volume.   Seriously.
"The function of the press (he
tells us)) U threefold. It is to
report facts, to educate by means
of facts, and it is to entertain."
Well, my goodness! From now on
I'm going to know the facts, because I want to be an educated
man — I like a little fun too. I
shall make a mental note to read
the pages of the nearest newspaper to get the authoritative, un-
propagandlzed information which
every educated man needs.
Mr. Perry also added: "The wise
read, and take note." Well, I'd like
to be wise — so I read and took
note. One thing bothered me
though — in the same issue I
came across this tantalizing item:
"All girls act tho same Way when
they want a kiss, Tho difference
comes when they want another."
This is staggering news. I shudder
to think of its import on tho average, educated man. Personally
I'm a little too timid to experiment ond seo just what the difference is; perhaps one of your efficient reporters could do that —
and then report his finding, factually. I'm sure "tho people" would
read that! *
"L.J.C."
Dear Madam:
I am no prude and I have been
around a bit; but somehow I feel
thnt something Is wrong with our
Mardi Gras chorus. Our girls, who
fire supposed to acquire some
poise and decorum ot Varsity,
ne;d thoy condescend to appear
vulgarly clad ond in bad taste on
two gala occasions? Need they
vie with, and almost outstrip professional stripteasers only to capture the flavour of cheap cabarets.
Instead of it being doliciously
risque as Oscar Wilde would have
liked it, the chorus, I believe,
succeeds only In being gross and
completely devoid of art. I am
sure the public may well be
somewhat mystified with the connection of this ungainly prancing
and university activities.

MONTREAL CONFERENCE
TOM SCOTT, President of ASME, and also of the graduating class, has been elected to represent UBC at the
forthcoming conference of the Engineering Institute of
Canada.
The conference wiil be held in
Montreal on Wednesday, February
6, at the Mount Royal Hotel. It
will have tlirse main objectives:
to discover means by which the
Institute may be of greater service to engineernig students, to
provide a means by which the
presidents oi the Undergraduate
Engineering Societies could meet
together to discuss common problems, and to bring students into
contact with the leaders of the
profession.
All transportation costs will be
paid by the institute, including
meals and sleeping accommodation
in transit. It is possible that Scott
will fly to the conference.
The EIC hod hoped that the
presidents of tho various Engineering Undergraduate Societies
would be chosen as delegates, but
in the case of UBC this was proved impractical as Jack Beveredge
feels that he cannot afford the
time from his present activities,
among which is the preparation
for the Science Ball.

Queens Receives
$300,000 Grant
KINGSTON, Jan. 22-(CUP)-
Queen's University has received a
donation of $300,000 for construction of a new mechanical building.
The building will probably be
started in the spring. A new students' building, administration
building, and a new men's residence   are   also   planned.    Plans
also call for possible enlargement
of the chemistry building, a new
story on tho mining and metallurgy building, and a new women's
residence.
WINNIPEG, Jan. 22-(CUP)-A
new cafeteria is under construction on the campus of the University of Manitoba. It will probably
be completed by April 1. F. J.
Felber, director of food service at
the University of Minnesota, made
a special trip to Winnipeg to plan
the ultra modern cafeteria. Parts
are now being build at Montreal.
Two outmoded swimming pools in
the basement of the residence are
being used as the location of the
project. Fluorescent lighting, automatic servers, dumb waiters, and
other modern conveniences will be
included. Floor will be vermin
proof.
THESE smiling and charming co-eds are the brains behind
the coming Mardi Grasi Audrey Buchanan is the very
capable chairman who is working with Don Newson to
present to this campus the most outstanding affair in the
history of UBC. Booty Hebb is in charge of the raffle, the
biggest ever held.
Mardi Gras Festival Is
Great, Gala, and Gay
LEGS, uninhibited and long, will feature Mardi Gras dance
routines at the Thursday-Friday two-day charity ball.
Under the direction of Joan Crewe Straight, the co-ed
chorines will present the all-time favorite of New Orleans,
the can-can.
Costumes are of red and white
polka dots, with a flouncy pink
bustle—behind.
Solo artist with the can-can
chorus will be Roma MacDonald,
clad in a saucy little black satin
and pink ostrich feathers affair.
Daintily gowned in yellow hoop-
skirts and white polka dot bloomers, the second chorus will hop,
skip, and cake-walk into the heart
of everyone present.
With this chorus will be little
Tlsh McLeod In her version of
Offenbach's Gallop.
These sensational dances will be
held amid the artistic decorations
of Buzz Walker, who has designed
his backdrops to put every one in
the festive Mardi Gras mood.
Gay and colorful are the plans
for the coming celebrations, the
most outstanding event of the
year.
Biggest and brightest moment
will be the crowining of the Queen
who will be voted in by all those
attending the Ball. The ten lovely
candidates will be paraded for all
to see both nights of the Mardi
Gras and, if weather permits, will
also be seen selling raffle tickets
and Ball tickets in the quad this
week.
Tiie magnificent raffle will be
drawn on Friday night when the
Mardi Gras committee will give
away a squirrel coat, and thirty
other prizes.
Thc Mardi Gras will have two
orchestras, with Dave Mcljellan
aiding the regular Commodore
orchestra.
Committee members include:
Audrey Buchanan, and Don New-
son, co-chairmen; Don Mann,
tickets, Booty Hebb, raffle; Buzz
Walker, decorations and program;
Ken McGowan, advertising and
treasurer.
FORUM TALKS
ON POLITICS
THE ISSUE of political clubs on
the campus will be debated on
Wednesday, January 23, in Arts
100 at 12:30.
Prime Minister Gordon Martin,
protagonist for an LPP club will
introduce the motion that "political ,clubs at the university should
bo granted the same status as
other campus clubs" while Bob
Harwood, ardent CCFer, will act
a? Leader of the Opposition.
Martin and Harwood will be
limited in time so that there should
be ample opportunity for at least
six members to speak on the question, according to Hal Daykin,
Parliamentary Forum president.
This debate is tha result of n
challenge given by Bob Harwood,
leader of the Mock Parliament
CCF, to LPP members. In his
words, "Since the provocation is
mine, the choice of weapons is
mine: Therefore I challenge Gordon Martin or anyone he may
designate to defend in debate the
formation of political clubs at
UBC."
Progressive Conservatives, headed by Grant Livingstone, have also
sent a request for permission to
organize a club. However, both
the LPP and Progressive Conservative groups will have to wait
until January 28 for the outcome of
their application. At that time,
the Board of Governors will have
reached a decision.
YESSIR MAKES
HIM TWOTIMER
UBC's veterans' councillors are
stumped.
A problem of diplomacy has
arisen, and they feel unable to
cope with the delicate situation.
Bill Dunbar, ex-Navy student,
got so used to saying "yessli"
during his hitch, that he inadvertently accepted two dates to the
Mardi Gras on the same night.
Dunbar's problem now is how
to get rid of one of his female
encumbrances.
Volunteers are asked to contact
htm at the Jokers table.
Manitobans Talk'
Take McGoun Cup
NEW OWNER OF the McGoun
Cup, symbol of victory in the debates sponsored by the Western
Universities Debating League, is
the University of Manitoba.
Winning a unanimous decision
at home ln Winnipeg, Manitoba's
travelling team of Peyton Lyon
and Max Haskell were handed a
two to one decision over UBC's
home team of Morris Berson and
Dave Williams.
In Saskatchewan, UBC students
Tony Scott and Stewart Chambers
lost ln a split decision against the
University of Saskatchewan.
W. L. McTavlsh, editor of the
Vancouver Daily Province, Mr.
Justice J. M. Coady and C. K.
Guild, K.C., were the judges of
the Vancouver debate. On the
evening of last Friday, the same
topic was debated in Edmonton,
Saskatoon and Winnipeg, that
"the Dominion Government should
undertake to guarantee the provision of suitable employment at
all times for all persons able and
willing to work."
The final standing for the four
universities with each judge having one vote is: Manitoba 8, Saskatchewan 7, B.C. 2, and Alberta 1.

IN DRAWING up plans for the proposed extension to
the Brock Memorial Hall, the committee is employing a
priority system for selection of facilities. An outline of the
priorities has been submitted for student approval and
criticism.
Class A priorities includes a
cabaret style dance floor 75 by 135
feet, an amphitheatre accommodating 250, and two salons, one for
30 people and another for 80 people. A Totem office is planned as
well as sixteen clubrooms, including an executive rooiq open to all
clubs, a Mamooks room and a
Ubyssey dark room.
There will be catering facilities
for the dance floor and salons. A
driveway to the entrance is also
being considered.
In Class B priority then is a
game   room   to   include   cards,
chess, billiards, and table tennis.
Also there is a rehearsal room and
a suite for the proctor.
A small dance floor 30 by 30
feet has been proposed. Tills
would be ideal for club functions.
Given Class C priority aw a
Banquet Hall 60 by 85 feet, a barber shop, an Employment Bureau
office and a workshop/
A tentative site Is directly behind the Brock Hall. It has been
suggested that the two structures
be joined. The committee wants
student comments, criticisms, and
suggestions.

ODE TO A PINSETTER
PITY THE POOR SPORTS EDITOR. If anything goes
wrong in UBC's intricate sports circles, it's the sports editor
who inevitably gets it in the neck.
For example, there was that cricket squabble that popped
up last week. It all started when various characters began
making a fuss about some fish nets that were strung up in
the Armoury.
As usual, several hot notes to the sports editor followed,
and again he was caught in the infernal web of another
verbal and epistolary battle. The first letter went like this:
Dear Mr. Sports Editor:
I see where the students of UBC have at last recognized
the dire need for a bowling alley and have temporarily
satisfied the need by setting up a bowling alley center in
the Armoury.
I don't wish to get personal, but I have a wife and six
kids and am desperate for a job. Do you know who I can
get in touch with to apply for a job as pinsetter? I have
had several years experience.
Yours truly,
John Q. McDuff.
Fate Spreads Her Nets
Naturally I was in a quandary. I could see that there was
trouble brewing somewhere. Little did I suspect that it was
brewing In the Cricket Club.
Besides, I was hurt to the quick, for I figured my sports
hounds had slipped up again. It smelled strongly of a scoop
for some snooping scribe.
I was unable to contact any bowling characters at the
time. But, as usual, this was the point where Fate stepped
in. This time she stepped into my office in the person of a
violent cricket enthusiast.
Suddenly realizing that bowling originated on the same
greens as the time-honored game of cricket, I took a long
shot, and, after letting the cricketer read the above-quoted
epistle, I asked him what the h— was going on.
All he did was scream and stomp Qut of the Pub. I never
saw him again, but I did get this letter from him the
following day:
Dear Luke:
Please excuse my actions yesterday. Would you please
inform Mr. McDuff that as yet we have no jobs open for
pinsetters. I would like to point out that what he supposedly
mistook for a bowling alley in the Armoury is, as a matter
of fact, a cricket net.
I suggest that you inform him that he might contact
Chapman's Bowling Alley on Broadway for the employment
he desires.
Archibald Q. Hardwicke
Bowlers vs Cricketers
And as if this weren't enough, it wasn't long before we
received anothed hot note from the president of the Varsity
Cricket Club himself.
Dear Mr. Moyls:
We feel that the Cricket Club has been taken advantage
of. We hear that somebody has mistaken our cricket net
for a bowling alley. Naturally, we take offense at this. And
something has got to be done about it because this isn't the
first time we've been mistaken for bowls enthusiasts, or even
for fishermen spreading their nets to dry, yet.
But getting indignant won't help the situation any. And
it won't throw any light on our beloved game of cricket either.
We would like to enlighten you regarding the cricket situation
on the campus.
We have to admit that cricket isn't a national game like
ice hockey is to Canada or baseball to the USA, but these
latter sports originated on this side of the Atlantic whereas
cricket is still essentially the same game that was first brought
to ths continent by the pioneers from the Old Country.
We have to admit that cricket isn't a spectator sport,
either. We won't see any large number of people attending
the game, and certainly not in the crowds that pack the
stadium for football, or the gymnasium for basketball.
Tea and Crumpets, Yet
It's impossible to stand on the sidelines and — unless
you've played the game — appreciate the feelings of the
batsman or the bowler. We suggest that you try your hand
at the game and find out for yourself.
There has been talk of making changes in the rules. Maybe
a faster type of cricket would encourage the fans more.
Suggestions include the installation of a PA system and an
electric scoreboard. t
Ideas like these have come from cricketeers, and it shows
that the players are consistantly seeking possibilities of
improving the game. It just goes to show that cricket isn't
dead yet, — not by a long shot.
Geoffrey Q. McBiddle
Well, after reading this, I hurried upstairs for a spot of tea
and crumpets. But I made no rash promises to join the
Varsity Cricket Club. Suffice it to say that I played the game
for one year in high school, and that was enough to last
me a lifetime.
But for those of you who haven't put in a year at cricket,
I strongly advise that it be taken up immediately. There's
a world of experience in it for you.
But as for these cross-fire arguments in which the sports
editor invariably becomes entangled, you may quote me—"It
ain't cricket".
In Year's Fastest Cage Tilt
By LUKE MOYLS
VARSITY'S Thunderbird hoopers established a few new
records when they trounced Whidbey Island's Navy Flyers
by an 82-63 score at the University Gym Saturday night.
Not only was it the highest score of the season, but the top
total for any Thunderbird basketball team.
It was a new high mark for the Varsity Gym too, and the
total of 145 points during the regular 40-minute contest
established an unprecedented rate of 3.6 points per minute.
Sandy Robertson rushed to the       ~™"~""-^————————
contest after being named Vancouver's "Sportsman of the Year"
at a banquet sponsored by tho
Vancouver News-Herald. But the
late meal and honors didn't effect
Sandy in the slightest as he paced
the Thunderbirds scorers with 22
points.
WHITE WAS TORRID
However, a slightly-built sailor
on the Whidbey line-up stole the
top spot with 27 points. Bill White,
a hooper who has never played
college ball, showed plenty of
promise as he potted baskets from
all angles. He tallied 17 points in
the first half.
The visiting Flyers took over'
the lead as the game started, and
they held a 13-7 lead before the
'Birds began to take action. Once
Varsity had taken a margin, they
were never headed.
The Blue and Gold cagers left
the floor at the breather with a
40-33 count.
NICHOL INJURED
Ritchie Nichol took a costly spill
midway through the opening
period, spraining an ankle and
leaving the game for good. He
was the only Varsity player to go
scoreless during the high-scoring
tilt.
In the second half, UBC romped
along on all remaining nine of her
cylinders, gradually stretching the
margin to the final 19-polnt
triumph.
Coach Bob Osborne brought forth
a new hooper to take over the spot
left vacant by Oordy Sykes. His
name is Hal McKenzie, former
Vancouver Island cage star who
played for Sooke Imperials.
WHITMAN COMING
Osborne is working hard on the
'Birds this week, getting them in
shape for their first home con-
. ference series. They play host to
Whitman College's Missionaries
Friday and Saturday nights at UBC
Gym. Game time for both tilts
will be 8 o'clock.

BISHOP TO GO
BACK TO WSC
COACH JACK FRIEL'S Washington State Cougars are in the
process of increasing their stock In
the Pacific Coast Conference, and
the addition of the nation's top1
scorer, Gail Bishop, to their roster, is fair warning to their rivals.
Bishop, who hung up UOO odd
points last season with the Fort
Lewis Warriors, plans to enroll
January 28 with the presumption
that his discharge will be forthcoming in time to compete on the
Cougar club for the remainder of
the schedule. •
Washington State is at present
gilding the cellar slot with but
one win ,that over the Huskies,
but with Ail-Americans Hanson
and Bishop, they should soon be a
threat on the coast hoop market.

Punters Upset
By Lion Squad
By RENO RINALDI
THE McKECHNIE CUP picture
underwent a radical change at
Brocktoh Oval Saturday afternoon as UBC Thunderbirds, who
once loomed large in the foreground, were pushed back via an
18-10 mauling by Vancouver Lions.
Around 2,000 fans who thronged
the Oval saw a little of everything,
what with the bruising upset victory that leaves the Cup race in a
three-way deadlock, cheering sections, Spencer's Remnants' band,
and the antics of the Jokers.
It took the Lions most of the
first half to get into hhjh gear
but once started they clawed their
way past Dan Doswell's boys
twice before the interval and repeated in the final session. Danny Holden came through on all
the converts but the last one, a
difficult angle shot in the closing
minutes. ;j
LION SMITH SCORES
It was 30 minutes after Col. Vic
Spencer had opened proceeding
with a kick-off that the Green
and Gold took advantage of an
intercepted pass, Marshall Smith
scoring a try after a 30-yard run.
Holden scored tfie convert.
The Lions roared again a few
minutes later with Bill Kinder
taking the ball over after a spectacular breakaway and 50-yard
dash Holden again booted the
leather between the uprights for
the extra two points.
WILLIAMS INJURED
After the interval, play rough-
p ened as the Lions took the Initiative and Lloyd Williams was injured in one of the scrambles. He
continued until Bob Blondhelm
slipped past him to score Vancouver's third goal, when Doswell
sent in Tom McLaughlin. Holden
again was good for the convert.
The 'Birds rallied as the half
wore on and the serum crossed the
line for their first score, followed
by a difficult convert by Don Nesbitt. They were given a penalty
kick a few minutes later but Nesbitt missed the angle shot.
Alex Carlisle topped off a neat
three-line run for Varsity's second counter and Nesbitt converted
with a shot that hit the post and
bounced through. Grofe Murdoch
crossed the line for the Lions' final
counter just before the whistle
but Holden missed the convert.
Coast Hoop Fives
Split Twin Bills
WEEK-END games failed to upset the Pacific Coast standing with
the result that Oregon State Beavers will ride the roost with a
string of four wins and one loss to
their credit.        ,
In Moscow, the Idaho Vandals
played host to the University of
Washington Huskies and split a
double-header engagement, taking thc initial tilt by a 50-45 count
and dropping the second 67-55.
In another doubleheader at Cor-
vallis, Oregon, OSC and Oregon
Webfoots came out even-stephen,
the Beavers dropping their first
tilt of the season on Friday to the
tune of 53-48, but coming back
strongly the next night with a
59-45 triumph.

SPORTSMAN OF THE YEAR — Vancouver's choice for the outstanding athlete of
1945 is Sandy Robertson, UBC's captain of the Thunderbird basketball team and promising
baseball pitcher and outfielder who was signed by Boston Red Sox of the American League
last fall. Presented with the trophy, emblematic of the honor, by Mr. D. A. Hamilton, president of the Vancouver News-Herald, which sponsored the event, Sandy hastened to UBC
Gym Saturday night to pace the Thunderbirds to a record triumph over Whidbey Island's
Navy Flyers, 82-63.

THE SOCCER game of the year
came off as most classics do, and
the result was a 1-1 tie in the
second round Imperial Cup game
between Varsity and UBC. The
game had all the elements of a
battle royal with heroism showing
on every play. But, it was definitely a one-sided game: Varsity
had all the play and UBC had all
the fight, and the result was a
draw.
The latest hero on the UBC team
is Dick Stewart, the goalie, who
pulled off many remarkable saves

minutes of play wheft John Carr
blasted a sitter past the UBC goalie.

line only to be blocked by goalie
Stewart with one of his many
saves.

Varsity again on the ball, but halfway through the canto UBC scored
its tally on a combination breakaway by Gordy Shepherd and
Frankie Adams the scorer. At this
stage of the game both teams
applied more pressure to try for
the winning goaf as play ranged
back and forth and the pace be-
lame hectic.
SEVERAL INJURIES

the fast pace as Gordy Courtice of
UBC pulled up with a wrenched
knee and Lex Henderson knocked
himself out heading a high floater.

clown UBC's alley as the team was
in much better shape than the Vnr-
s'.ty eleven, but the cool defensive
play of Jack Cowan and goalie
Crant Moreton kept the speedsters
from scoring.
