TO THE APPROVING ROAR of 4000students, John Buchanan,
president of the UBC Alumni Association, crowned Engineering candidate Qreta Ward princess at Saturday night's Homecoming Ball in the Armory. He placed a crown on her head and
told students their judgment had been sound.
Graduates Find
Thousands/of homecoming graduates got a good look at a
bigger, better UBC during weekend celebrations which were
climaxed with the election of pretty Greta Ward as Homecoming princess in the Armory Saturday night.
Grads began to arrive Saturday *■ —
morning to have a look at four new
projects at UBC with the help of
guides. Many were shown through
the uncompleted War Memorial
Gymnasium, the Biological Sciences building and the new Applied
Science building and the Fraser
River project.
Carefully marked with white
lapel buttons, guides from the
meli's Big Block Club showed the
campus to grads from 10:30 a.m.
to noon.
Hooded duck-billed "Dinny" is
now part of UBC after making
his debut for grads in the Engineering building. Professor emeritus M.
Y. Williams presented the beast to
Dr. S. F. N. Chant at ceremonies
during the noon hour.
Dr. Williams spent months assembling the two and one half ton
array of bones which is on perman'
ent loan from the National Museum
in Ottawa.
After a revived Thunderbird
fcffltball team had put on a spectacular first half for grads, home-
COtaers were treated to a parade
and presentation of the Great Trek-
ker Award of 1950 to Joseph
Brown, Jr., for his outstanding
work as chairman of the Alumni
Development Fund for the past two
Winning float in the parade was

For Volunteers
An urgent call for volunteers lo
do committee work for the International Student Service at I'HC
lias been issued hy I'eter de Vooght
ISS   head   here.
De Vooght said that lie is badly
ill need of help to carry out several
important projects for ISS during
the   coining   year.
"We particularly need a publicity man. a program director, and
an overseas book supervisor." he
said. Persons wishing to do committee work are asked lo apply at
ISS offices in huts behind Hrock
ta Theta fraternities and Kappa
Alpha Theta sorority. Presentation
of a cup for the best float was made
following the game.
Second prize went to members
of the Law Undergraduate society
who staged a mock trial ln which
they put athletic lethargy on trial.
Their float was followed by an
aged, black hearse.
In the evening grads saw a performance of the Musical Societies
rail opera "Dido and Aeneas" and
the annual Grad-Thunderblrd basketball tussle in the gym.
During intermission of the Homecoming Ball in the transformed Armory, Alumni president John Buchanan crowned Engineers candidate Greta Ward Homecoming
"Your judgement has been
sound," he told 4,000 alums and
students who turned out for an
evening of dancing and entertainment.
"Thank you for this honor,"
Miss Ward told the crowd, "It has
been a wonderful day and I hope
next year's celebrations will be
equally as enjoyable."
Tickets for the first "Bus to Nowhere" in aid of the War
Memorial Gymasium are now available in AMS office.
The first mystery trip will leave Pacific Stage Lines
Depot at Cambie and Georgia Saturday at 8 p.m. and will
return to Vancouver shortly after midnight.,
It is essential that students either buy their tickets in
advance or inform the AMS office how many they want
reserved, Al Westcott, chairman of the bus committee said
Monday. ~
"We have reserved one bus definitely and have another
ready ih case of a last minute rush," he said, "but we must
know how many are going to show up."
Cost of the trip is $1.90 per person return.

Dr. Shinbeln died Thursday In
Boston, Mass., where he was attending tbe meeting of the American College/of Surgeons.
Appointed to the senate In May,
1045, and to the board of governors In 1946', the late Or, Shinbeln was a keenly Interested and
active member of both boards. He
was a helpful and loyal person in
the planning ot the faculty ot medicine at UBC, and although his interest was chiefly in bringing the
new faculty into being, he was' an
enthusiastic supporter of all university activities. The fact that
Dr. Shinbeln was in very poor
physical health for the past years
did not deter him from his work
oa the boards.
He was influential m Instigating
the American College ot Surgeons
to Its present peak, and was a regent of the organization. His recent appointment was consulting

14. Following the meeting ballot

Constitutional changes involved
in Ostrom's plan will not be made
at the November 14 meeting If it
is approved by students, the AMS
president also announced.
Ostrom has asked that the constitution be changed to include a
new set up for the Men's Athletic
Directorate and the Men's Athletic Association, give the MAA a
fixed budget of $18,000 tor the next
four years, and shift the UBC band
and the Pep CluB* Into the MAD
sphere of influence.
These changes must be posted
for the consideration of the students two weeks before a decision
Is made, according to the by-laws
ot the Alma Mater Society.
"Since the first general meeting
was held November 2," Miss Donaldson said, "two weeks have not
elapsed before students vote on the

EUS Answered On Athletic Plan Questions
Don Duguid, RI'S president outlined what engineers termed "flaws
nnd con fused issues" in the Os-
trom Plan at. the special AMS
meeting Thursday In the Armory.
"These questions are, In most
cases quite logical, and I think I
can answer them satisfactorily,"
Ostrom said.
Duguid first questioned how
MA A's $ IS,000 budget was to be
"The MAA grant will he proportioned basically Hie same as at
the present time," Ostrom said.
Money covers administration costs,
ten in budgets, intramural program,
etc. "It will definitely not be used
to pay the salary of an athletic
director, nor will it cover any indi
vidual aid to athletes," he added.
Salary of the athletic director
will be paid by the administration,
who will hire a man to fill that
position, he said.
Ostrom referred again to the athletic director as he answered Du-
guid's second question—"How binding is the obligation of the athletic
director to carry out the policy of
"The athletic director's job ia to
carry out all policy as directed
by  MAD,"  Ostrom said.
Under the new system MAD will
he a five-man executive composed
of the president of MAA, secretary
of MAA, director of physical education, director of athletics and an
alumni representative, who will
chair the group.
MAD will vote on the recommendations presented by MAC (Men's
Athletic Council.) MAC will be
representative of student opinion,
since all voting members will be
elected By the student body.
« "Unde^ this arrangement," Ostrom said, "the athletic director
will act on the demands of the student body, as presented by their
elected representatives."
Duguid questioned also the source of "outside" money for athletic
aid, and why "outside" donors
were giving the money.
Ostrom stated that such "outside money" would have no influence on his plan. Referring to recommendation 12, he explained that
these groups will not he able to
approach athletes through the ath
letic director, and he said "It is up
to students themselves to check
on athletes who accept aid through
unauthorized sources on their
"In order to gain recognition
for any donation a group would
have to have their aid approved
by the faculty and listed under the
loan, bursary, or scholarship section of the calendar," he said.
Ostrom felt that the students
should have sufficient faith in the
university administration to trust
to their discretion in such matters.
"We do not know whether Dean
Cage's committee will act as this |
plan dictates," Duguid  said. !
Ostrom pointed out that the plan'
. i
does not dictate any policy to the j
aid committee. It merely appoints
five people to investigate the.quea-
tioti of athletic' aid and methods of
adapting such aid to lTIIC. Their
findings will be presented to tbe
student body for approval or disapproval at the annual Spring
AMS  meeting in  March.
Duguid asked In conclusion, how
much money the board of governors were being asked to allocate
to athletics, and what would happen if they refused such an allocation.
"Administration will pay the salary ol' an athletic director," Ostrom said, "and 1 think they realize that the athletic scheme which
he will co-ordinate is worthy of
whatever contribution they can
make," Page 2

The plaintive whines of the honorary
sorority,,'/of, renewal of their budget leave
Us cold. 3fe cannot help but agree that they
can operate quite efficiently, indeed, perhaps
more efficiently—without a grant from student government.
i The honorary fraternity,, a comparable
organization in every way, has never had a
budget and its members have vigorously respited every suggestion that they ought to
get a handout.
The purpose of these organizations is
simply to get people together to thrash out
campus problems. It is an extremely valuable
function, but it is not one which costs money.
Moreover it is one which must be kept apart
from the wheels of student government.
If "members of these outfits want gold
pins and assorted paraphenalia then they
should, as the members of the honorary fraternity have always done, pay for them
The student body is far too hard pressed
to be able to afford to pass out chunks of gold
to the' girls of Delta Sigma 1*1.
the Forrester Principle
Dr. James Forrester, a theology lecturer
taking part in Varsity Christian Fellowship's
noon hour series on religion, had some astounding things to say to a meeting last
Science and religion, he said, are gradually growing closer together. Scientists and
theologians, lie declared are coming to hold
the same viewpoint.
Now we'd like to do a little bit of
astounding ourselves: We agree with Dr. Forrester.
It takes an astute mind like Dr. Forrester's to discover this revolutionary principle, but it takes only a normal intellect to
see- its truth.
If he had wanted to illustrate his principle, Dr. Forrester might have pointed out
how scientists and theologians whole-heart
edly agree that:
1. The atom bomb Is somewhat dangerous when dropped on cities.
2. Wars are undesirable ffom the point
of view of those who get killed in them.
3 The Guinea pig is not really a pig at all.
but a species akin to the ground hog.
4 .Communism and capitalism differ
somewhat in piindiple.
6. The human nervous system is more
complex than that of the leStet protazoh.
We could go on at great length, naming
other statements upon which, we dare tc
suggest, scientists and theologians are in
complete agreement.
Put we needn't waste-your time and ours
when that practice seems to be Dr. Forrester's specialty.
Sifting The Cinema
The European cinema has always been
preeccupied with the theme of the essential
loneliness of life—particularly modern life.
Time ahd again it has presented the struggle of an individual to adapt himself to an
unsympathetic environment in the face of the
opposition, of other individuals of authority,
or by internal weaknesses in his own character. It has shown, often with great understanding, the tragedy of our inability to fully
understand our fellows. This is the problem
dealt With in the Swedish i\\m "Torment".
Winner of the Grand Prix du Cinema
at thfex Cannes Festival, the film well illustrates how effective cinema can be when designed for a mature audience. It is concerned
with the storms and torments that assault an
adolescent boy involved in a triangular affair
with a girl of -"questionable morals and a sadistic schoolteacher who mentally tortures
them both. The boy tries to free himself ahd
the girl from this evil influence but tragedy
intervenes; the girl is murdered, and only
by a supreme effort of will does the boy,
Vidgren, return to an acceptance of life. In
the process he has changed from an adolescent* to an adult.
In lesser hands this plot could have easily
turned out to be nothing more than a "mystery thriller with romance". But, under the
masterful direction of Alf Sjoberg, all the
tragic implications and psychological overtones of the situation are fully developed. If
one were to single out .any one sequence
for special praise, it would be the love scenes
between the two young people. These are
handled with a poetic tenderness that is all
too rare on the screen. Furthermore, they
are perfectly placed in relation to the later
scenes of violence. In the entire film no opportunity has been missed to present a superbly understanding picture of a young person's struggle to maturity. How this struggle
is speeded and intensified by the melodramatic circumstances of the plot remains at all
times convincing and often genuinely moving.
Much of the success of the film is due to
the. perfect' appropriateness of treatment to
theme. Ingmar Bergman's script is a model
of conciseness and balance. It is brought to
life  in  equal  measure' by  the  magnificent
photography, (a column could be devoted to
the use of camera angles to heighten suspense) and the acting of Alf Kjellin as the
boy, Mai Zetterling as the girl, and especially Stig Jarrel as the schoolteacher. One leaves
the theatre after seeing this production with
the "full and satisfied" feeling that comes
from experiencing something fine and real.
—Stanley Fox.
+ + +
The Italian-made "Bicycle Thief" is, in
this writer's opinion, one of Uie moat superbly produced films we have seen. Simplicity
is its key-note. The story concerns a doWrt-
and-out family man who sells almost hi:*,
last belongings in order to buy a bicycle
which will make it possible for him to hold
a job pasting up posters. On his first day at
work the bicycle is stolen, and for the remainder of the picture he searches for it.
At the end the bicycle is still not found. That's
all. Nothing more complicated, no unnecessary externals added, none of the many opportunities offered to make it a weeping orgy
are taken advantage of. I shudder to think
what would happen to it In the hands of
£am Goldwyn.
The utmost in economy and control is
exercised in every aspect—set details are
never intrusive, only obvious enough to suggest background. There is nothing either in
the actors or the story itself to detract from
the single threat of events. The very singleness of actioh makes the total effect extremely powerful, and brings thehumah element into clear black and white prominence.
It is interesting to note that although "The
Bicycle Thief" has a tremendous tragic impact, it does not provoke floods of tears from
the audience. It does not produce the comfortable teary softness of say "Random Harvest;" but, think of other tragic films such as
'The Blue Angel", or "The Ox-Bow Incident". They and "The Bicycle Thief" are uncomfortable plays: More than pity-provoking,
ihey do not allow us to indulge in a warm,
melting sentimentality, but arouse a response
of strength — often a sense of revolt
ngainst the conditions which produced the
tragedy. —Joan Basted.
Letters To The Editor
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir: i
Are the executives of the Fish
and Game club in hiding tor some
malodorous deed or are they merely shy by nature, and therefore inconspicuous? In elt'her case, however, any attempts that I have
made to contact them during the
past tew weeks have failed miserably.
I would appreciate any information that you could give me about
this elusive executive. Better yet,
if there is some member of the
executive of the Fish and Game
club Who would be good enough to
contact me with regard to an interview; I feel sure that I have a
proposition which will be both Interesting and profitable to all concerned.
Ydttrs truly,

Realising that there are still many unanswered questions in the) minds oi students regarding the proposed
changes in tha UBC athletic set-up, Student's Council has
come up with a scheme to try and help them out.
MAD president Brock Ostrom is giving a series of talks
to various eampus groups on the plan but those who miss
them will still have an opportunity to have points cleared
up. ,
Council is requesting that any student with a doubt ia
his mind write out his question and deposit it \n the campus
mail addressed to Brock Ostrom. These questions will then
be publicly answered in the pages of the Ubyssey.

game with the Northern Idaho College of Education, and it was but
six short minutes later that the
visitors held a 6^}. lead.
Four consecutive first downs, a
30-yard pass Into the UBC end
zone, and Harley Williams, the
Logger's leading ground-gainer,
had tallied his first touchdown
of the afternoon.
But then something happened,
and the question at the time was,
John Ployart ticked off a six-
yard gain only to be nullified by
'Something' Obvious
a UBC offside penalty. But this
'something' then began to operate.
A complete pass from Cord Pie-
tnons to Bunny Lotskar accounted
for 60 yards. Successive ground
plays via Oeorge Salnas and Dave
MacFarlane, and the home squad
was perched on the Logger five
yard stripe.
An intercepted pass by visitors'
Bill Wigle stopped UBC's drive,
but three,running plays netted only
an Idaho fumble, and a first down
for Thunderbirds on the Logger 34
yard line.

Birds*managed but nine yards
in four plays, and Northern Idaho
was again on the move. Their first
ptay accounted for 11 yards and a
first down, but a second fumble
gave UBC the offensive.
Two incompleted passes, however, and MacFarlane was forced
to kick for the first time during
the game. Idaho's first play netted
19 yarjds and.a first down, but the
quarter ended as Loggers were
held to no gain on three successive ground plays.
During the second stanza, "something" became all too obvious. For
the first time in the history of
football at this university, the
Thunderbirds were playing a wide-
open game.
To a point, the home gridsmen
were relinquishing defensive play
in favor of an offensive game.
Aa the quarter opened, Idaho's
Chuck Trlggs was forced to kick
his team out of danger. Four plays
later, UBC's MacFarlane was ob-
Insult to Injury
A drive to the Logger 30 yard
marker was stalled only by the
half time gun.
Second half progressed with the
same theme, Thunderbirds were
apparently forgetting the score piled against them, and, Instead, concentrating on another for themselves.
Adding insult to injury. Trlggs
again passed from kick formation,
and this time, Charles Adams garnered the score.
Now lagging 13 points, Birds only
apswered by driving through for
sjx. points of their own. Home squad
had come from their own 35 to the
Logger 2 yard line before MacFarlane accounted for his second
major score, and the team's third.
At the eight minute mark of the
fourth quarter, Trlggs again passed from kick formation and Logger's Adams had his second touchdown ot the afternoon.
With their backs against their
own goal line during the latter
minutes of the final stanza, Birds
slightly shifted their earlier tactics by exhibiting one of the finest
defensive stands seen ln the UBC
Loggers, despite home town efforts, notched two^more points
when Gord Flemons was trapped
behind his own touch Hue while
preparing to pass.
And so the game ended, But not
before   UBC's   Thunderbirds   had
liged to kick. And four plays later,
Trlggs again found himself in a
similar position.
Bird lineman Cece Taylor blocked the Logger quarterback's boot,
however, and it was first and 10
on the visitors' 28 yard line.
Taking • advantage ot a Logger
clipping penalty, MacFarlane car*
rled the mall for UBC's first score
on an off-tackle smash from the
five-yard line. The quarter was but
four minutes old. Leo Lund's convert was blocked.
During the next eight minutes,
Northern Idaho tallied twice courtesy halfback Harley Williams. A
pass from kick formation accounted for one ot the extra point tries.
Barely two minutes later, Gerry
Stewart tallied UBC's touchdown
after gathering in a Flemons pass.
And with only a minute and a half
remaining in the game, Birds' Ian
Adam intercepted Trlggs' aerial
attack to once again give the home
team the advantage.

Lost in Fifth Annual Hoop Tost
In Saturday's Homecoming basketball game, the Thunderbirds beat the Thunderbirds 53-47.
And, as is obvious, we couldn't lose this game.
There Is a catch, however. ^
The Thunderbirds,referred to in
the latter circumstance Were those
'Birds of former years. Although
this older group has not, in many
cases, seen nor heard of the game
of basketball for many years, a
mere six points separated them
from their younger opponents.
Fielding the older of the oldo'r-
sters, coach' Heiley Arklay's Grad
squad jumped to an early 8-2 lead,
only to watch the Pomfret crew
tlghen up, overtake their six point
deficit, and proceed to capture the
lead. A lead which, by the way,
they never relinquished.
Sparks of brilliant play were
evident throughout the game, as
Grads and present Thunderbirds
alike tallied goal for goal. A field
basket by the visiting crew would
