Livingstone
Starts
New Program
Grant Livingstone, president of
Branch 72 of the Canadian Legion
and next year's Alma Mater Society
president, was empowered by Student Council at Monday night's meeting
to form a committee to organize the
proposed University Institute for the
development of British Columbia and
to improve the transportation from
Sasamat to the campus.
The purpose of the proposed institute is to help to solve the problem of employing University of British Columbia graduates in the province by studying the opportunities
and problems of the development ol
British   Columbia,   said   Livingstone.
FAST ACTION
To form a committee with a view
to organizing the institute was one
of the major points of Livingstone's
platform in the recent AMS campaign.
"Although I don't take over office of AMS president In full till next
fall I feel thee problems should be
tackld immediately," he said. He
hopes to see the organization of the
committee under way as soon as possible.
The committee he will set up will be
a study and advisory group to all
students interested in developing the
resources of < this province, he explained.
"It is hoped that it will focus the
attention of all those in the province
interested in this problem on th-
logical centre of thought and leadership toward this constructive end,"
he said.
BIG PROBLEM
At present he had in mind several
people with whom he has discussed
the project and who are willing te
assist in the organization of it, but
he hopes that others interested will
contact'him  and  lend  their support.
In regard to the transportation problem he had this to say: "It's a big
problem which I think wc should
tackle soon, but it will take time and
preparation and a good deal of work.
Tor the present I plan only investigation of the problem in detail. Con-
crte action may or may not clevelo,,
this year."
He said he would welcome suggestions and assistance from anyone
intrested in solving this "transpor-
can contact him in the AMS office.

Suggestions for further use of the
main lounge of Brock Hall have teen
offered by Don McRae. AMS treasurer. He stated no class parties had
taken place in this building this y-ar
except the Home Economics Dane
He is in favour of Having at 1'ea.si
two or three major functions each
year.
Budgets allocated for down town
dances, McRae said, could be usoii
to further advantage if the dances
were held in the Brock Hall. Although many dances do take place on
the campus, they are, for the most
part, small and informal affairs, Inn
McRae holds that Brock Hall may be
used for formal parties in the near
future.
Mussoc Production
Plays This Week
Limited number of student tickets
for "Pinafore" for Thursday night
will be distributed at noon today in
the Quad.
"HMS Pinafore," the Musical Society light opera production, which
commenced last night in the university auditorium and will run currently until Monday, February 11.
was first produced at the Op'era
Comiquo in Paris on May 25, 1878,
with the inimitable comedian George
Grossmith, in the role of Sir Joseph
Porter.
"Pinafore" played for two years
before crowded houses, and this was
the beginning of the Gilbert and Sul-
ivan craze. Unfortunately the production was pirated by American
organizations, due to the abs'enej of
copyright laws, Eight companies were
staging the light opera, all in the
vicinity of Fifth Avenue in Neu
York. The composers hastend to America and soon had their rights recognized.
TEAM WORK
Sullivan and William Schwenl;
Gilbert reamed up to produce then'
first joint work "Thcspia" in 1ST:!
Gilbert, who was born in London in
18.'i6 and spent his early years in lave,
met Sullivan in 1871, and for som
years their combined g:nius producvd
some of the immortal light opera-
which   forever   remain   popular.
The combination broke up for ;
tim-o due to a somewhat petty jealousy  of each  other.
Reconciliatinon came about in 189:!
when they produced "Utopia Limited," but some of their former genius had been lost. 1896 brought ai.
end to the combination, when th
brought out the  "Grand Duke."

Canadian Campus
A Weekly Feature
By The Canadian University Press
Natural outcome of the great
interest in dramatics shown by
Canadian students is the instigation
of inter-university drama festivals
providing an opportunity for an
outlet and display of student productions outside the limits of home
campuses.
Such festivals have not as yet
been extensively attempted among
the Eastern universities but in the
West festivals have attained much
success and are annual events.
Publicized and noted by all university [wipers last year, was the
inauguration of western inter-
university festivals brought about
through the initiative of tho Uni-
veristy of Alberta. Participants in
these non-competitive affairs are
the U's of British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba.
A LIGHT IN THE EAST
After the lapse of intercollegiate
drama festivals, during the war
years, an attempt was made last
spring by McMaster University to
revive them. A conference was
held to lay the groundwork for
their reappearance, but plans to
commence   th*   festivals  this   au
tumn collapsed when one of the
member universities withdrew. Another attempt will be made this
spring in conjunction with NFCUS
and with, it may be hoped, more
success. Certainly the success
achieved by the Western Universities has proven the popular reception, given to festival displays,
and perhaps laid the foundation for
their introduction on a national
rather than a regional scale. Sports
and debating have become gadabout activities in exchange between our universities. It hag yet
chance to "hit the road." Student
to be seen if dramatics can get its
dramatic efforts can hai/e no better
stimulus than the (challenge of
larger audiences.
BABY SPOT
Small scale model of the inter-
university festivals are the intramural competitions held at the majority of universities between
different years, schools and faculties. Lacking such, intramural
events, Carleton College plans to
take opportunities offered outside
university circles and enter the
Ottawa Drama Festival this month.
SHAKESPEARE AND OTHERS
The variety of works being pre-
COLLEGE DRAMA
PART II
sented at the different universities
reads like summer stock billboards,
and shows that students are not
afraid to tread where many professionals have found the walking
exceedingly hard.
At Queen's, Director of Dramatics
Dr. William Angus, who heads the
well-known Summer School there,
has a dramatization of Shakespeare
on. the CBC network in co-operation
with Shakespeare Scholar Dr. G. B.
Harrison. Top honors for variety
of production go to the University
of Alberta who have produced this
year "A Farewell Supper" by
Schnitzler, "Waiting For Lefty" by
Odets. "The Devil and Daniel
Webster" by Stephen Vincent B'enet
and their festival effort "Martine"
by Jean Jacques Bernard. Also on
their list for the year is their spring
play, now in production, Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night." Some of
the other productions of college
year '46-47 include "What Every
Woman Knows" by Barrie and
Synge's "Riders of the Sea" at UBC;
"Outward Bound" by Vane at McGill; "Arsenic and Old Lace" at
Acadia; and at Toronto the first
all-university play to be produced
there since 1937, Shaw's "St. Joan."
Acadians Hear
Grace Maclnnis
That every person has a right to
good health and education in the
post-war world, was one of the resolutions passed at the World Congress
of Women in New York last fall,
according to Mrs. Grace Maclnnis,
guest speaker before an assembly ol
women at the Acadia residences,
Tuesday  night.
The former provincial Member of
Parliament was one of s'.x Canadian
delegates to the Congress that included 200 female representatives
from 56 countries, all of them prominent in national or international
politics.
Only representatives who failed t,
ippear were the Russians, who gave
r:o excuse for their absence.
Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt, chairman
of the Moral Welfare Committee of
the United Nations, was one of the
patronesses   of   the   meeting.
The congregation pledged its support to the United Nations, and resolved, as a teacher from Luxembourg put it, "that UN should coins
with bread in ane hand and a book in
tho other; for through the books we
learn to keep the bread."
Discussion was divided into nine
panel groups with mixed reprsen-
tation, that milled out all aspects of
•-eenomic, political, social, and moral
problems   that   currently   prevail.
Women, they decided, should take
d more active part in politics, although they did not "plug" for women's rights.
Unlike similar conferences that had
been held in Europe, the New York
group had a German delegate, who
some of the other delegates openly
"cold-shouldered."
CHEQUES

free for Paid Robeson's address
tomorrow, student - veterans'
cheques will not be issued as was
formerly announced.
Instead, they will bu distributed
Saturday and Monday.

Glider 'Switzer'
Not Beyond Repair
The Glider Club's "Switzer" sailplane which crashed Sunday, February 9 and resulted in injuries to
instructor Roman Sobinski, is not
beyond repair, according to a member of Thunderbird Glider Club, Carson Smith.
"We are not grounded by any
means ," commented second year
pre-medical student Smith in the ab
sence of the Club's president, FranI
Woodward. "The sailplane just need;
a new left wing and repairs to it,'
nose,"    Smith   added.
Smith was working on one of three
gliders in the Thunderbird Glider
Club workshop in O ("or Orchard)
hut number 10. Besides the two-place

ODD SPOT
Reported overcrowded conditions
existing at the University of British Columbia were realistic facts
to one student of an English 200
lecture when he fell from the
window of Applied Science 100
last Monday afternoon.
Anxiety as to his welfare wt'.i
felt by some of the compressed
student assembly but fears were
dispelled when the unlucky straggler returned to the room apparently none the worse for wear.
Red Cross Seeks
Student Blood
The Canadian Red Cross Society
has announced that a blood donor
drive will be conducted at The University of British Columbia during
March. Mr. E. L. Kenny, donor panel
director, outlined plans for the campaign in a letter to the Alma Mater
Society. Premed students have been
asked for their assistance in organizing and directing the drive.
Blood will be taken on the campus
so as to cause as little inconvenience
to the students as possible. A fully
equipped mobile unit rules out the
necessity of donors being sent to
Shaughnessy Military Hospital for
the operation. This unit will visit
the campus twice a week from 11:30
a.m. to 1:30 p.m. A plan is yet to be
evolved for organizing the donors into groups, each with a special appointment,
The UBC drive is part of a nationwide endeavour by the Red Cross
to make blood available to those who
need it, free of charge. Donors need
not adhere to a special diet as their
blood will not be reduced to plasma.
Health Officials
Fear X-Ray Lull
A lull in the rush to make appointments for the tuberculosis chest X-
ray was reported by the Health
Service officials yesterday. They
said that during the first week the
response had been very good but
with the present decrease in the
number of appointments being made
officials fear serious congestion will
icsult during the last week of the
clinic.
By yesterday morning 3161 people,
oi nearly one third of the 10,000 at
university had had their X-ray
taken. This number includes nearly
9000 students, 200 faculty and 600
staff.
The clinic will remain at UBC
until the end of the month and students arc urged by Health Servir
ol'lieials to make their appointment
as soon as posible at the Health Service hut behind the auditorium.

Window Shows Publicize
Drive For Medical School
Four window displays — three of them in downtown department stores — are being prepared to advertise the Medical
School drive, it was revealed by Bob Wilson at the general
assembly of pre-medical students Tuesday noon.
Layouts and posters are to appear in the show-cases at
Spencers, Woodwards, the B.C. Electric, and at the Dairyland
Stores at 8th and Cambie Streets.
Wilson  outlined  the  province-wide*
canvass for the establishment of the
medical school, which is now in full
swing.
Following the recent expedition to
Nanaimo by two pre-med students, the
Nanaimo Board of Trade has circulated letters to all Vancouver Island
boards, informing them of Naiuiirno's
whole-hearted support of the campaign.
In additiion, Wilson said, a notice,
"couched in very strong terms," has
been posted to the government at
Victoria and the Nanaimo board has
promised to lobby in favor of the
drive1.
"A Junior Board of Trade meeting,
which Pat Fowler addressed Monday
night, seemed very favorably disposed
toward   the   cause",   Wilson   said.
Six Members of the Legislative Assembly, who attended a pre-medical
luncheon over the week-end to discuss the problem, have promised to
speak from the floor at the next
assembly, and reply to the recent
speech from the throne concerning
the matter,
A planned Spring trip to see Premier

HAIL, SPIRIT
The comments of Dr. Bernard Heinze at the
symphony concert in the Armory last week
pointed up something of which this growing
university has reason to be proud. It will be
recalled that he expressed his pleasure to find
that what is called "culture" is not being overlooked in UBC's development.
From both the Administration and the Alma
Mater Society in the past two or three years
have come hopeful signs that the University of
British Columbia will not be allowed to degenerate into a mere degree-granting institution
on a sort of trade-school model.
Instead, the signs on the cultural front would
point to a realization on the part of all concerned that the ideal university graduate is one
trained for living as well as for making a living
There was a time not so long ago when, the
classical, love-of-learning tradition having been
all but demolished under the impetus of the
age, there was a danger that utility, commercialism, and the mechanical application of
science, would become the end purpose and
result of a UBC degree.
From old fortresses of cultural endeavor such
as the Players' Club and the Musical Society,
new spirit has been apparent since the end of
the war. Musical activity in many serious
forms has experienced a UBC revival. The
Radio Society has made a start on raising the
level of a new art- A literary magazine has
been founded. The Administration, helped by
gifts from sympathetic citizens, has been able
to plan for a Chair of Music and an Arts Centre.
These are but a few of the outward manifestations of a spirit which many students have
detected about the campus. That spirit — a
love of something indefinable labeled "culture"
or "art" — is one to be welcomed and aided at
this university-
The spirit shown might not be the start of a
new Golden Age, but it nevertheless is a heal
thy one to surround the growth of UBC and of
Canada.
Why India Secedes
Reprinted Courtesy "Saturday Night"
Few Canadians, we imagine, are aware that
the behavior of their country can have had an
important influence about the decision of the
truncated Assembly of India (with Moslem
members absent) that India shall as soon as
possible withdraw from all association with the
British Commonwealth. Nevertheless such is
the fact.
It is explained in a brief article by Professor H. F. Angus in the just issued winter
number of the International Journal of the
C.I.I.A. "The few hundred East Indians who
live in Canada", says Professor Angus, "have
an international importance out of all proportion to their numbers. It is as difficult to
explain to Canadians why their treatment is
resented in India as it is to explain to Indians
why they do not enjoy full political rights in
all parts of Canada".
British Columbia is the only part of Canada
where East Indians are in any way disqualified,
and not more than 1,700 persons are affected
by the disqualifications. They are of course
British subjects, and it is the complete worth-
lessness   attached  to  that  status  by  British
Columbia that contributes very largely to the
low opinion in which it is held by Indians in
India. No remedy is available, and no representations even by the Government of India
can have any effect, because such representations could be addressed only to the Dominion
0
Government, and that Government has no control over the franchise and the regulations of
civil status in British Columbia. All that the
Dominion could do — and even that it has
avoided doing with the utmost care—would
be to enact that the franchise discriminations
of British Columbia should not operate in
federal elections.
Meanwhile British Columbia enjoys a representation in the House of Commons based on a
cencus which includes all the Indians, Chinese
and Japanese in its territory, so that the white
British Columbians actually poll not only their
own votes but those of the people whom they
disenfranchise. This is precisely the same situation as that which existed in the Southern
States before the Civil War, when the white
Southerners enjoyed Rep. by Pop. on a population which included slaves.
Letter To Dave Williams
From LEN PEARSON
This article is an answer to the
"Men of Distinction" column on
US foreign policy by Dave Williams, which appeared in the
Feb. 4 Ubyssey.
I maintain that the United States
shows unconcern for peace only in
that she opposes the expansionalistic
desires of the Soviet Union; and
this opposition, far from being dangerous, is the greatest hope of suppressed freedom-loving peoples all
over the world.
America is not alone in trumpeting
against Russian ''influence" in Europe; all democratic people are forced
to protest the enslavement of the
peoples of Eastern Europe by the
greatest mentally debilitating force of
all time—Communism. You infer that
the US intends to annex the war-
conquered Pacific islands — on the
contrary — the US government is
now preparing 1o apply to the UN
for trusteeship of these islands, thus
submitting the matter to a gathering
of her peers.
As for Japan: Since the US-Jap
war was almost an exclusive affair,
I think it is only right that the government of Japan should be 'entrusted to the US and I also think
that no one will deny that MacArthur

America from intervening more
strongly    in   Spain    is   the   justifiable
fear that another Civil War in Spain'
would throw the Populace into despair, and subsequently, despair's
pandering   bedfellow,   communism.
The United States Is so concerned
with Argentina that she did everything in her power without flagrantly
abrogating the Act of Chapultepec,
which repudiated "intervention by
a state in the affairs of another," to
prevent the election  of Jaun Peron.
I would like to suggest that someday wo may be trankful that the US
is continuing to produce atom bombs.
Concerning your statements on the
Republican Congress: I feel, and I am
sure  that  most  Canadians  and   Am
ericans agree, that free enterprise is
worth preserving at all costs.
I can only wish with all my heart
that the only ideal of many men in
Congress was Democracy as the triumph of our age, for, if that were
so, if we had the same burning faith
in Democracy that the Russians have
in Communism (with infinitely less
reason), then many of the world's
problems would be solved, for we
would rise up as one man to denounce
injustice  wherever  it be found.
Instead, to my great dismay, we find
ourselves today, as democratic countries, condoning the existence of the
greatest fascist state of all time

Council Seats For Camps?
A proposal has been made to Student Council that constitutional representations be given to student re-
idents of Fort Camp and Acadia
Camp.
The reasons given by proponents
of this movement are that camp residents comprise a sufficiently large
representation of the student body to
hold a seat on Council, and that matters of discipline and social organization should be under Council
jurisdiction.
Should this measure succeed, we can
rightly expect Wesley Colleg* and
Lulu Island Camps to band forces
with Little Mountain representatives
as constituting a body of sufficient
size to merit a position on Council.
Carried to its ultimate and logical
conclusion, every domicile with more
than one student could petition for
the right to Council representation.
The students at the Camps constitute less than one-seventh of the
total student body. The eleven members of Council represent major portions of the Alma Mater Society
members, and as such, are not confined in their activities to any one
section   of   the   campus   population
which does not entirely represent
tnat population. To give one small
sector the privilege of exerting a
control over the majority is to refute the democratic principles upon
which the Constitution and Code of
the AMS is based.
Few student residents at the camp
have knowledge of this move other
than what has been reported in The
Ubyssey from AMS sources. Two or
three individuals have started this
move; it is unfair to put the entire
responsibility for such an unwise
action upon the shoulders of Acadia
and Fort Camp students,
The officers of Student Council
are representative of the entire student body. They are not chosen by
virtue of the area in which they live,
tnd they represent the student body
as a whole no matter where the student resides. To give Acadia and Fort
Camps representation on Council
would be to over-enfranchise a minority An which the individual is already represented through the offices
of Sophomore member, Junior member, and Council - members - at
large.
Legion Letter
From HAL LINDSAY
Despite reports to the contrary, at
least a portion of the on-again, off-
again University Concert Series will
be presented. Members of the concert committee are investigating all
possible means whereby the concerts may be brought to the campus
without opposition from those parties
who brought about cancellation of
the appearance of Miss Frances
James, scheduled for February 2.
Incidentally, the silver collection
taken at Miss James' concert on Wednesday, February 5, decreased Legion
losses by $104 and Radio station
CKWX cancelled all publicity fees in
view of the enforced suspension of
tho series.

Letters To The Editor
LECTURE LOVERS
Dear Sir:
It is indeed a source of inspiration
to note the deep devotion of the
student body to the pursuit of knowledge. Only at yesterday's concert
of tho Vancouver Symphony did one
realize the full strength of the desire
to learn.
So eager were the students for
knowledge that at 1:15 they commenced a frenzied dash to their respective lectures, loath to miss one
single utterance of their professors;
a mad race which nothing could stop
—not even the trampled feet and offended musical sensibilities of their
less conscientious fellows.
It must have been a delight to Dr.
Heinze, himself a university professor, to note this flaming love of
knowledge, which neither fine music
nor common courtesy could quench.
J.  L.  CANTY.
RICHARD in
Dear  Sir:
Wo    were    astounded    to    see   the
scathing   denunciation   bv   a   column
ist in youc newspaper, re the recent
production  of  Richard  III.
When one considers tho expended
efforts, over a number of years, by
enlightened Vancouverites to further
artistic presentations of classical
plays, this scurrilious report strikes
a disturbing note.
In all pioneering enterprises there
is found to be imperfections, but
when a number of our alleged "elite"
resorts to a destructive satire of a
sincere effort, without a single note
of constructive criticism, then Vancouver deserves to wallow in a provincial trough.
As  the  opinions  of  supposedly  informed critics is bound to Influence
large   sections   of   the   public   who
might otherwise judge for themselw
by   seeing   the   play,   for   a   worthy
cause    (University   Memorial   Gym>
let us  at  least have  criticism  at  an
intelligent level, and not for a bunch
of  yokels,  who have  to  be  inflicte
with   the   doggeral   reminiscent   of   a
recent   "Time"   magazine   article   on
Dali's   illustrations   of   "Macbeth."

University Power House
Receives New Sub Station
By   KEN  WEAVER
In order to keep up with an ever growing Campus, the
University power house is building a new quarter of a million
dollar addition to be completed some time next fall.
The power house which supplies heat to all the campus
buildings as well as Anglican and Union Colleges is, figuratively
speaking, operating with its safety valves tied down.
For   some    time   now   the    three <£>
boilers,    which    deliver    a   total    of
30,000 pounds of steam an hour,
have been operating over their
measured   capacity.
Electricity is not generated by
the power house as some students
believe. It is brought to the campus by power lines and a sub station reduces the voltage for use
on  the  campus.
The new unit now under construction will house the new substation which will bring the total
amount of electrical output to 1750
KVA.
Space Occupied by the old sub station will be used to house a new
boiler. This boiler alone will deliver
30,000 pounds of steam, bringing the
total output of the power house to
some 60,600 pounds.
In charge of the expansion of the
power house is Dr. H. J. MacLeod,
head of the Department of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering. Stated
Dr. MacLeod "the new station will
represent the latest and most modern
equipment."

School Equality
Denied By Hall
By The Canadian University Press
TORONTO—There is no such
thing as equality in higher education in Canada, Dr. G. Edward Hall,
president-elect of the University of
Western Ontario, declared in an address before the Toronto Board of
Trade recently.
"Surveys indicate that in families
with an income of $5,000 or more,
practically all students of superior
ability attend university," he said.
"But only 44 per cent of superior
students from families with incomes
from $2,000 to $4,000 attend university
and fewer than 20 per cent of superior
students from lower income groups
attain higher education."
Dr. Hall called for the establishment of a committee to fix the finances of universities on the basis of
national and provincial needs.        (
He charged that Canadian universities had turned out ■ stereotyped
graduates during the last 25 years.
Universities, he said, emphasized
scientific education, trained students
to make a living, but omitted the
humanistic background necessary to
intelligent citiaenshlp.

NFCUS Position
By The Canadian University Press
HAMILTON—Donald Seldon of
McMaster University has been appointed permanent secretary of
the National Federation of Canadian University Students.
He succeeds E. A. MacDonald
of the University of Toronto.
Seldon graduated at McMaster
in 1940, where he majored dn political economy, and subsequently
enlisted in the Hamilton Argyall
and Sutherland Highlanders. He
served overseas and was taken
prisoner during the Normandy
campaign.
Liberated by the U.S. 9th Army
in the spring of 1945, Seldon returned   to   Canada   in  June   and
was discharged shortly aftrwards.
In   addition   to   his   secretarial
duties, he is in charge of the McMaster    University    employment
bureau.
Sixteen piping and eight drumming
sons of Scotland are currently perpetuating traditional Scottish music
on the campus, marching up and
down Brock Hall lounge Saturday
afternoons. The group, which includes five women, is tho UBC Pipe
Band, formerly the Legion Pipe band.
Chieftain of this musical clan is
Engineer James Munro who, with the
help of Grant Livingstone, president
of the campus branch of the Canadian Legion, organized the band in
September 1946. At the first practice
a total of 16 pipers and three drummers turned out. Since then the band
has played at several functions—on
Armistice  Day,   at  the   Legion   Ball,
and at the recent Burns Banquet.
The band is very proud of its veteran members who include Munro, a
former member of the Irish Fuseliers,
Cal Biggar, who served with tho Sc-a-
forths in Italy, and Ian McKinnon
of the Navy.
Two of the outstanding members
of the band are Jack Low and Margaret McKay. Low, 2nd year Engineering student, is the holder of many
amateur piping prizes. These include
the B.C. Pipers indoor Aggregate
and the Vancouver Caledonian Games
Aggregate. Miss McKay, who is
teaching other members to play the
drums, is herself leading side-drummer of the Glengarry Girls' Band.
With Dr. N. A. M. MacKenzie as
Honorary President and Grant Livingstone as President the band expects to form into a club in the near
future. Through the generosity of an
anonymous donor the members are
being provided with kilts of the
Royal Stewat tartan which will arrive from Scotland sometime next
year. Minister of Finance Abbot has
donated to the band a set of drums
which will bear the UBC crest.
Also within the next year, classes
will be given for the benefit of those
who wish to learn to play the bagpipes. The Pipe Band does not take
the responsibility of anyone who is
evicted from his house for practicing.
Heinze Presented
ith Silver Case
Dr. Bernard Heinze, FRCM, Degree
Superieur, Schola Cantorum of Paris
v/as made Honorary member of Alma Mater Society of the University
of British Columbia and presented
with a sterling silver cigarette case
at the home of Mr. Fyfe-Smlth on
Sunday, February 9.
Presentation of the gift—suitably
engraved and bearing UBC'c AMS
crest—was made by Jerry Macdonald,
president of Literary and Scientific
Executive, and Beverly Wilson, president of Players Club.
In thanking the AMS, Dr. Heinze
said: "In all my travels I have never
seen such a wonderful sight as the
sea of eager faces I viewed from the
stand in the armouries." Dr. Heinze
conducted the Vancouver Symphony
orchestra at UBC armouries on Friday,
January 7.
Dr. Heinze added that concerts of
this type were one of the finest
things a university could sponsor. He
hoped they would be continued.

Veterans Enter
Teachers1 Course
Approximately 350 veterans now
at the University of British Columbia plan to enter the teaching profession, according to results of a
Veterans' Bureau survey announced
Friday.
The situation is expected to alleviate the shortage of teachers within the next few years, said Max Cameron head of the Department of Education.
The number at present in each year
planning to enter Teacher Training
are: fourth year, 75; third year, 117;
and second year, 153,
Total number registered in the
Teacher Training Course this year
is 45 as against an average pre-war
enrollment of 65. Expected total enrollment in the next three years is:
1947-48, 100; 1948-49, 150; and 1949-50,
170,
One of the reasons for the shortage
of teachers, according to Mr. Camel on, is the fact that many women
teachers resign to get married after
teaching only a few years. The average teaching period of each teacher
in B.C. is only ten years, he said.

SUMMER THOUGHTS ALREADY
Small notices over some of the tables down in the Caf
recently recalled a great many memories of the past five years.
These happy recollections of the past came from a little place
up Howe Sound way where yours truly and many other Varsity
lads have spent many a happy summer and hope to do more
of the same in the future. To the uneducated, we refer to the
"Place of a Million Memories," Camp Elphinstone.
And a nice spot for the YMCA to have a summer camp
for boys would be mighty hard to find. Lots of fellows who are
out here now will be able to tell you of the days they spent
up there as a camper and possibly as a leader.
Those stories will probably feature swimming, going out on
over night trips, in fact everything to do with life in the great
out-of-doors.
0
Swimming, Hiking Galore
To anyone who has ever been to a summer camp of this kind,
it would be hard to believe that anyone would ask what the
subject has to do with sports. Swimming is at its best on the
shores of Howe Sound up around Williamson's and Grantham's
Landing. The surrounding district is full of new places to explore
in hikes and out-trips.
Many a mountain has received the mark of a group of
Elphinstone hikers. The face of Mount Elphinstone is always
a challenge to the best of climbers. In the past, the boys have
tackled Mount Garibaldi and only last year, a group went up
the Lions approaching from the Sound.
In most of these trips, the boys leave in the War Canoes,
long sleek canoes which will seat seventeen men and which have
become a well-known sight to the people on the Sound.
The Leader Has A Job
Of course, every camp must have its rules and for that
reason, only those who have proved themselves as swimmers
are allowed to paddle in the revered canoes. The skip must be
a leader who has proven himself in handling the canoe and the
boys in the boat.
Yes, it's pretty hard to imagine a better way to enjoy a
few weeks out of your summer. That will be so particularly if
you get a kick out of living with a bunch of fellows for a while
and teaching young boys something about living out of doors.
The Camps is once more on the look-out for leaders for this
summer's camp. But just what does a leader do? Generally
speaking, he is in charge of eight young fellows from 10 to
15 years of age in one of the fourteen cabins spread around
the edge of the large grass covered campus.
Seconders For A Good Thing
But whenever you are trying to teli someone of a sure
thing, you want to tell them who else will back you up in
your .statements. And there are lots of fellows on the campus
who could do that. To mention a few, there are Pat McGreer.
Bob Haas, Gerry Stevenson, Thunderbird hoop stars, Dick
Ostrosser, another hoopla artist, and many others.
You couldn't know these boys without hearing about
Elphinstone. Pete McGeer who is now back east, was on the
staff last year. Art Johnson, former Thunderbird star was the
water-front director last summer. Harry Fanklin, popular
Thunderbird hoop artist was another Elphinstone man.
If you are interested you might get in touch with Norm
Cragg clown at the 'Y' or some of the eager beevers around
here such as Bill Bentley, Walt Hartrick. Al White or George
Gay.
There will be posters in the Library next week. You might
take a look at the picture and see if you might not be interested.
It sure is a swell way to spend a few weeks this summer.

loop, the Thunderbirds will have to
win both contests to keep safely in tho
running against the College of Idaho
live. Idaho has a perfect season to
show for their efforts so far.
One point in favor of a Thunderbird
win in these battles is the fact thai
the Bearcats have had the College of
Puget Sound Loggers to contend with
in two other conference affairs Tuesday night and last night.
BEARCATS THIRD
UBC, on tho other hand, will have
had almost a week to recuperate from
their recent road trip that netted them
but one win in four starts-. Furthermore, the Bearcats have lately beer,
vicing with the CPS Loggers for third
position in the league, as compared
with the second spot the Canadians
occupy.
Thunderbirds' standing will also depend on how the loop-leading Idaho
lads fare against Lewis and Clark
on these nights.
Tuesday night's Logger-Bearcat fixture put the Puget Sound hepmen to
the fore when the home team tallied
a 64-49 win against the Willamette
quintet. The reception of last night's
results could well cause the interested
Birdsters to wax optimistic if the
second of the twin games should also
put the Loggers out in front.

propelled them into the finals against the highly-touted Meraloma aggregation, but for the Chiefs it signalled the end of the casaba trail.
Doug Whittle's Chiefs hadn't been
conceded too much of a chance to
upset the Adanacs, and after the first
game in which the Chieftains were
scalpd by a 45-38 count, they were
considered finished.
COMEBACK TRAIL
However, the Blue and Gold quintet proved it was equipped with the
old college try in the second game,
and they staved off a late Frasertown
rally to eke out a 35-34 victory at
the New Westminster YMCA.
The consistency that was never one
of the characteristics of the hoop
warriors bludgeoned the Chiefs for
a final time on Monday night.
Sparkplug in the Chief's swansong
was Lennie Letham who hung up a
tremendous 15 points for the student
in his best effort of the season
Captain Freddie Bossons provided a
helping hand with 9 points.

STUDES SIGHT,
SINK SAILORS

a 37-29 victory ever an able but disorganized quintet from the HMCS
Warrior at the Varsity gym on Monday noon.
Jack Fomtret's lads went right to
the fore in the early minutes of the
contest and were well out in front
the sailors by ralf time. The Warrior
team showed the fans that they were
capable of handling the melon, considering the little time the lads have-
to practise.
