VANCOUVER, B.C., TUESDAY, FEBRUARY  18, 1947.
No. 49
Hart Reaffirms Meds
$1£ Million Quota
By LAURA HAAHTI
In his statement of policy Monday, Premier John Hart told
the B.C. legislature that the University of British Columbia
medical school is to get a yearly appropriation of $100,000, in
addition to the $1V2 millions that has largely been allocated
for its establishment.
Five Remainins Council
Seats Polled Tomorrow
The offer has been left to the consideration of UBC authorities. Whether
or not the new medical school is to
open next year has not been decided.
In rejecting the $1 million quota
that medical experts consulted by the
university set as the minimum yearly
operating costs, Premier Hart stated
that such an amount would be incongruous with a faculty graduating
only 50 students yearly.
REPLY
He added that "the Medical Association of B.C. is not by any means
unanimous that' such large expenditures are necessary."
Mr. Hart's speech was in reply to
speeches made before the Legislative
Assembly last week by four MLA's,
from both the government and oppsi-
tion parties, all of whom positively
advocated immediate establishment of
the medical college and hospital on
the UBC campus.
The members were: R, MacDougall
(Point Grey), C.W. Morrow (North
Okanagan —Coalition), W.A.C. Bennett (South Okanagan—Coalition) and
Harold Winch', leader of the Opposition
party.
LETTERS
The raps at the government evidently followed a "flood of letters"
from private citizens and students who
had been asked to write their support
ol the Medical School drive to Victoria.
The Pre-medical Undergraduate Society had campaigned for a $5 million
appropriation.
PMUS president Bob Wilson commented on the Hart speech that, "We
pre-med students feel that the government is making a grave mistake in
disregarding the advice of the medical
experts."
It would delay considerably the establishment of a first-class medical
college at UBC, he said.
Med Ball Held
At Commodore
Something entirely different in
entertainment is promised Nursing
and Pre-Med students at their annual formal by Pre-Med Mike Shepherd who is in charge of the program
for the affair to bs held at the Commodore on March 3.
Plans are well under way, according to the committee, with ticket
sales for nurses and pre-meds now
open in the south entrance to the
Caf. This year the ball is a pass
feature and presentation of AMS
cards will entitle NUS and PMUS
members to purchase tickets for 7.')
cents, states committee member Phil
Heaps.
General ticket sales will open Feb ■
ruary   34,   but   the   committee   warn
that the  number  is limited  and  acl
vises   early   purchase.   Admission   fo
other  students  is  $1.75  per  person.
Nursing students are conducting ;
ruffle at the ball, proceeds of which
will be turned over to the Gym Fund,
according  to  Ellen Johnston  of NUS.
Dance Planned
For China Aid
Campus participation in the Canadian Aid to China drive will be in
the form of a dance sponsored by the
Chinese Varsity Club. The dance will
be held in Brock Hall, Saturday,
March 1.
A parade of ancient and modern
Chinese gowns will be featured at the
dance. Women club members will
model the clothes.
Twenty raffle prizes are offered;
the tickets are now being sold by
members of the club and the greek
letter societies. Prizes range from
nylons, slips and men's shorts to 30
pounds of lard.
Tickets for the dance, at $1.25 a
couple, are available in the AMS office, the Quad, and the Oaf,
All proceeds from the dance will
go to the Canadian Aid to China
committee. Funds rasied by the Aid
to China drive will provide scholarships in Canada for Chinese desirous
of continuing their education.
The money raised will also be used
to send direct aid to the needy Chin-
ess by way of supplies to supplement those available there.
Island Invasion
Scheme Fails
Inability to charter a ship resulted
in the cancellation of a proposed invasion of Victoria, which Ihe Mamooks had planned as a m.thod of
enlisting support for various athlete
contests'in the capital March 9.
Although the official invasion is
off, a large number of Victorians and
other supporters of the Blue and
Gold will travel to the Island on th-
regular steamers.
In 1938 an invasion of Victoria by
six Varsity teams and some eight
hundred supporters revived the tradition of the early twenties when tne
Island trip was an annual feature.
Mamook officials hope next
year to stage the biggest invasion in
university history. The objective o
the UBC flood is to be Tacoma, n,
support of the Blue and Gold Amor-
can  football squad.

University of California debaters

"is the best posible under the present
circumstances". He was backed in
this assertion by team mate Bill
Rogers, contention that the introduction of an administration under
the United Nations could only lead
to "conflict between the basic principles of communism and captiallsm,
Cliff Greer and Grant Livingstone
represented UBC, taking the positive
stand. They stated that the problem
of administration was one of bringing democracy to Japan and therefore the United Nations was best
fitted to deal with it.
Voting by the audience present
gave the decision to the visiting team.
This is the sixth debate this team
has participated in since leaving
Berkley, all of which were decided
by an audience vote. Bill Sharon,
third member of the team, did not

Survey Results
Results of an occupational survey
of the 4,700 veterans at the University
of British Columbia, conducted by th.
Veterans' Bureau under Major John
F. McLean show that there is iv
longer crowding of veterans in a few
popular courses, according to results
issued from the President's office
Friday,
ARTS INCREASE
Tin? survey, which was based on
personal interviews with every ex-
serviceman and woman on the cam-
pis gives a clear indication of th"
vocations which student vetrans intend to follow. The choices cover
a variety of over forty different vocations.
A .significant fact revealed by th
survey is that the concentration of
veterans is in the first and second
years. It also shows that the nuinbe
in each important branch in engineering had decreased where as the
Arts c irses the number has shown
a   large  increase.
Tho most popular branches of engineering shown by the survey arc
electrical, forestry, mechanical, chemical, civil, mining, geological, aeronautical   and   mctalurgical.
Tho Arts courses which attract th"
largest number are: law, commerce,
teaching, agriculture, social work,
medicine   and   dentistry.
small   number  of veterans are:   criminology,   plant   pathology,   psychiatry.
aichaeology,   botany,   ornithology   and
industrial   psychology.
LESS ENGINEERS
Comparison   with   a   similar   survey
made   of  3200   veterans  last  year   reveals   that   the   occupational   trend   i

professions but there is a tendency te
bianch     into     the     many     different
types of engineering. Commerce is the
second   most   popular   choice   of   the
veterans   but   the   number  entering
this field is relatively the same as last
year.   Most   significant   increases   are

World Government
Petition Received
The local International Relations

creation of a federal world government" from Reed College Student
Political Action Committee at Portland, Oregon.
In the belief that the petition is a
worthy way of bringing student desh*e
for a world government more strongly
before the United Nations, all major
colleges and schools in the Northwest
have been contacted in the hope that
student opinion may be brought to
bear on UN.
"Imminent threat of global war" is
the main argument of the petition. If
ten million endorsations are received
a "World Constitutional Convention"
of delegates from all lands will be
convened.

SINGER CHAMPIONS
MINORITY RIGHTS
By JACK WASSERMAN
A university graduate and the father of a university student,
Paul Robeson, champion of minority rights, feels especially close
to undergraduates. Such was the impression left with me and

the great singer's recent speaking appearance on the campus,

The first shipment of 1947 Totems that arrive on the campus

Don McRae.
Those who paid a two dollar deposit on The Totem last fall
and have still to pay the one dollar and a half balance may pay
the rest at the AMS office in Brock Hall.

violent revolution.''

I asked Mr. Robeson whether or
not his interest was in the strictly
racial aspects of the struggle for equality.  Ho told  me that  in  his eyes the

THE BIG SLEEP
A favorite worry of many Canadians is the
fact that each year hundreds of able college
graduates pack their bags and head for the
United States. On a similar scale, University
of British Columbia grads leave for eastern
Canada. Many people and several governments are blamed for the exodus and implored
to do something about it. The reason generally
given for the sacrificial emigration is the fact
that the degree-holders can earn more money
in the States or in the East. Seldom, if at all,
are other possible reasons considered.
A self-critical look at Vancouver, however,
might be the first step in offering some additional explanations. It is worthwhile to criticize Vancouver, for if ever there was a city
endowed with natural advantages providing
for a possibly superior living centre, this is such
a city. Yet what does a newly-graduated man
or woman find here to counter-balance the
magnetic charm of higher American salaries?
First, the graduate must find a place to live
in a city with one of the worst housing situations on the continent.    His searching will be
hampered by transportation through, fantastically inadequate roads, especially in a downtown area that was forest only sixty years ago.
"If he does find a suitable home he knows that
the protection it will get from inadequately-
equipped fire and police departments will not
be satisfactory.    Protection will be even less
adequate for his place of work, especially if it
happens to be on a waterfront without flreboats.
If he had a car and he takes it downtown he
will have to search madly for a cheap place to
park it.   Perhaps he takes it downtown While
he goes to see a better-grade theatrical or musical show, presented in a make-shift theatre.
If he likes good food he'll have trouble finding
more than a dozen restaurants worth patronizing.    When his out-of-town friends come to
visit there'll be an even smaller number of
good hotels for him to recommend.   And if they
should want an alcoholic beverage, well, there's
always B.C.'s archaic swilling control laws.
Perhaps they don't drink but would like to visit
a first-class night club. If they find one they'll
also find, in a liquoriess establishment, a dance-
floor full of drunks.
Perhaps the married graduate will have some
children who will have to grow up in a city that
basks in praise of Stanley Park but provides
little else in recreational facilities. When they
grow up the children, may go to poorly-equipped, out-moded .school buildings where the
instruction from inadequately-paid teachers
won't be much better. The children may be
sports fans but they will not be able to attend
a really first-class stadium, arena, or gymnasium.
The graduate and his children will not find
dozens of other things which a city of Vancouver's size might be expected to provide. And
if they should get sick they may line up and
wait for their turn to enter hospital.
Do any of these things offer an explanation
for the exodus1? It is not sufficient to blame all
this on the war, for in large part the situations
outlined above stem from the unimaginative,
incompetent political and economic "leadership" which Vancouver has suffered in the past
forty years. The war has brought more people,
including college students, to this city, and it
has been found wanting.
Only now are there signs that some of these
situations will be remedied. Youth, especially
when college-trained, is impatient, and many
in youth's ranks will want more than signs
before they resist the temptation to combine
higher wages with something more worthwhile
and exciting on which to spend the money.
Is there room for men and women just out
of college to do something to help, is there an
answer from the men in Vancouver politics and
business who can do something about it, or will

J beinr;   a   British   subject—that   and   a
tradition   behind   him "of   tremendous
civiii'/ation,    stretching   .so    far   back
into the past that we can only guess
at   its   origins--scarcely   welcomed  at
the polls or in the residential areas of I
this hi.1-,  own  country. i
But who is responsible for these
glaring crimes-is it them—the other
people—or maybe it's the government?
And there it is again—that unhealthy
idea of the government as somebody
else always—never as us, everyone
of us—but as some other group of
people.
And there lies the solution—we are
(lie government, and we hold in our
own hands the power to allow racial
and religious persecution, or to beat
it down. If every one of us were to
eradicate from himself all trace of
the feeling of racial superiority and
te fight bitterly against all evidence
of racial discrimination in others,
there would be no race problems.
Because there is no racial superiority
—and don't take that on my word-
go to the anthropologists if you want
the whole story—go to Franz Boas or
read the recent 'Patterns of Culture'
by Ruth Benedict. But for God's
sake don't think that you're a pure
white Aryan with a race to purify—
because the beast just doesn't exist.
Letters To The Editor
Student Forum
Righteous Indignation
In regards to the "righteous indignation" on the'
campus at the present time concerning the stoppage of
the Canadian Legion's proposed Sunday concert series,
Dean Swanson denies the blame afforded his council of
Church Elders. The Salvation Army declares itself,
through its national leader, to be against the series as
"Unchristian", yet no one has sufficient faith in his
actions to admit a real share in the ban.
Like Miss Frances James, many of us hope that the
Legion's leaders "will not find their cupboards bare."
We also agree with Dean Swanson that "the law
must be obeyed, but if it is a bad law, it should be rectified." Here at UBC approximately 9,000 of the people
of Vancouver and B.C. feel the need for correction.
Surely some diplomatic members of the Students'
Council, or better, since it i.s their show, the leaders of
the Legion could, in session with such prominent men
as Dean Swanson and his Council, arrive at a series of
recommendations for our lawmakers at Victoria.
So long as each side is willing to make an attempt,
a clearer understanding and a satisfactory if not perfect,
agreement could be reached.
We have seen no indication of the church's stopping
the Vancouver Symphony concerts presented here on
Sundays, yet these are far from free. The B.C. Electric
presents free Sunday concerts in the Park every summer,
but someone is not stopped from charging for the seats
We say (hat there is little difference between a free
concert where one pays for the seats and a concert where
the cost  is higher, but  the proceeds for a better cause
As our civilization permits the preaching of any
Religion eve, llv radio it should also admit the right
of the cifh'.er.s to choose their own entertainment.
Banning the concerts will not swell the congregations:
those who need the church will go whether there is a
concert  or  not.
There is uiuc.i to be .-.aid for relr'ion. We can say
nothing else and be Inmost. Much can also be said for
such an honest, worthy, cultural presentation as this
proposed series.
Surely the voluntary meeting of leaders for each
side could arrive at a satisfactory agreement. Tho least
they can do is TRY I

This Man Remnant
The last column by Mr. Remnant on re'igion is
remarkable in one sense: that he spelled the word "God"
with a capital "G". Beyond that, it is like the sounding
off of a boy intoxicated with his first sip of philosophy,
holding out an answer to the whole world. His points are
sharp and painful from lack of insight. Perhaps the
greatest fault lies in his method of making people (who
are speaking individually) speak for whole institutions
for all ages. Speaking about Father Chaloner, who again
was voicing his own opinion, the difference of opinion is
in the degree of tolerance and where is tho dividing line
between tolerance and intolerance. Is it right to slur a
man. who is lending his voice to moderate and restrain
youth in this post war period of maladjustment and vice?
I'm sure his words in the wilderness had a positive
effect on some.
More careful inquiry would prove that it is not the
stand of this more powerful Church to crush the other,
but the stand of the government of Quebec urged by a
large part of the population and a few clergy. Observation
would have disclosed that not all Newman Club members
opposed the resolution.
In his sweeping statement on the tolerance of the
Catholic Church, Mr. Remnant with an eye on the past
was thinking, no doubt, of the Monastic and Feudal
periods without consideration for the social and intellectual standards of the time, or maybe to the Religious
Wars and the Merchantile period without admitting that
nationalism and imperialism tried to assume righteousness by hiding behind religion. I challenge him, in this
present period of individualism, to submit an example
of its intolerance in matter's other than, those bearing
directly or  indirectly on faith and morals.
ThoNcvangelistic spurt by which ho concludes may
answer the dilemna in his mind about the atom bombs
and the weekly offering after six days of labour. He
submits the answer that, religion should recognize God
as humanity and all acts of living be made the worship
of God. This idea would dispel any purpose in life.
Surely he realizes that there i.s a material purpose
to exist and propagate mankind and besides a spiritual
purpose, also identical with mankind, which is the
important purpose in that if we are blown up by an
atom bomb (product of the other purpose) the whole
process may still be worth while.

Unconcerned   Hindus
Dear   Sir:
I cannot fully agree with the article "Why India Secedes," or with
its inferences. I certainly do not disagree with the "Saturday Night's"
editorial plea for racial tolerance and
full civil liberti'es but to say that,
India secedes from the Commonwealth because the Sikhs living in
British Columbia are not franchisee!,
is a gross exaggeration.
From what I saw during two years
in India I can say that the Hindu Nationalists are no more concerned about
the well-being of their ex-patriots
in South Africa and Canada than
wore the Nazis about theirs in Poland and the Sudetenland. It is but
a propaganda tool; a tool to achieve
party power. Furthermore, the Congress Party is not merely concerned
with or about democracy. The Hindu
social order is not going to change
just because India has its "freedom." There is nothing democratic
about the caste system and the most
ardent upholders of this system tire
the same Congress leaders Who occasionally sputter liberal sentiment.
So I conclude that India under the
ctominence of the self-elected Congress Party is going to be at an unbelievable best, a benevolent oligar-
fescist state. Then for India's sake
there as no reason why we should
eafranchise the Indians in Canada;
for our own sake there is.

Iconoclast   Outdone
Dear  Sir:
Congratulations to Mr. Pearson for
some of the finest confused thought
since   Brann   the   Iconoclast,
I was particularly taken by his
searching revelation of Russia's 'ox-
pansionalistic desires'—overt so fai
only in an interest taken by Russia
m east European politics comparable,
say, to that of live US in South America—but plainly manifested by Russia's ridiculous concern over American interest in the Middle East, the
Canadian North, and China; American troops in Japan, Korea, the Aleutians, American air bases in Iraq,
Lebanon, Syria, Egypt, Turkey,
Greenland, Iceland, the Phillipines,
th<* Persian Gulf, and Saudi Arabia;
and American Naval bases in Alaska,
I tiie Aleutians,  Hawaii,  and the  Marianas—to service a navy that is now
larger   than  the   combined  navies   of
| the rest of the world,
Again I heartily agree with Mr.
Pearson as regards leaving Franco to
his own devices in Spain—how infinitely better to leave the people under
the domination of a German-established fascist dictatorship than to
cause them the despair of freedom—
and what if they turned communist-
horrors. Correct me if I'm wrong, Mr,
Pearson, but we were fighting against,
the communists in the last war.
weren't we?
There's just a couple of things—
I can't see how communism can be
a; the same time 'the greatest mentally deliberating force of all time'
and the source of a 'burning faith'.
And about most Canadians and Americans wanting' free enterprise—well
I'm getting damn sick of it myself,
and I know two or three otters who
are too.
As regards the atom bomb—iif we
can ever be thankful for possessing
the most damnably murderous and
inhuman weapon that has so far
been invented, it were better we
should never have t>een bom.
PETER REMNANT
Washless Walsh
Dear  Sir:
To answer stupid invective with
more stupid invective is doubtless
no solution. However, such a letter
as that written by J, W. Walsh against
Piter Remnant's column can hardly
he   neglected.
Mr. Walsh, did not criticize I? m-
nant's work, he gave his foolish opinion, of it; Mr. Walsh did not back
up tiiis opinion of Remnant's worl.
by giving one specific example of
'erroneous ideas' or 'literary deterioration,' he indulged in a few scribbles   of   'vacuous   vapourings.'
Personally, I admire and respect
Mr. Remnant's opinions, As for Mr.
Walsh, I suggest he 'walsh' behind
Ins  own  'pseudo-intellectual' ears.

Engineers Active
In Sporting Field
Engineer, as usual, have been taking a very active part in
UBC sport. Besides having their own team in the rugby "B"
division in the city league, they also form an important part of
most of the major UBC teams.
In basketball, Harry Kermode is
one of the stars on the Thunderbirds.
Many other engineers aie playing on
the inter A and senior B teams.
The faculty of Applied Science was
well represented on the A American
football team. Some of the engineer
players were president Gordie Genge.
Gus Sainas, Fred Joplin, Dave Storey,
and Bill Choukalous.
Johnny Wheeler, a fourth year Geological student and winner of the
'George Pringle Memorial Bursary
■is captain of the Varsity rugby team.
Other engineers on the UBC and Varsity rugby teams are Bill Tisdale.
Alec Carlyle and Russ Latham.
The cross-country team which placed
first in the Seattle meet had an engineer representative in Al Bain. Al
placed third in the UBC cross-country.
In boxing, Phil Olsen, heavyweight,
and Walter Grey and Art Beaument,
welterweights, represented UBC very
capably in last year's Golden Gloves
and will undoubtedly give a good
account of themselves in this year's
tournament.
The number of Applied Science intramural teams has been increased to
three with the addition of a first year
team. Although their organization has
been hampered by a large enrollment
much is expected of the first year
boys in the following months. Pete
Townsend and Norm Kilpatrick, sports
representatives of first year engineers,
and Daynard Welsh, second year sports
representative, have been doing a
very good job in organizing the intramural teams.
A new system of inter-class games
is being arranged. The games in different sports will be played on a
challenge basis. It is hoped that this
system will supplement the intramural program in giving more of the
fellows a chance to get in some sport.

MAL ROBINSON
The Engineers' Undergraduate Society although the most active group
of its kind on the campus, has become a semi-organized society because
its executive is a semi-functual body.
In seeking election for the position
of President of the EUS, it is my
desire to build an organization in
which the members will be actively
engaged, under the leadership of the
executive, in attending definite aims
common to all. Those aims which I
consider important are:
1. arranging and organizing all social functions
2. acquainting junior students with
the various branches of engineering
through   professional   guidance   talks
3. aiding all students in attaining
summer employment which will give
them practical experience in their
field of specialization
4. meeting annually with the faculty
advisory committee for the purpose
of discussing desired changes in curricula
5. fulfilling the aims of the constitution and promoting engineering; spirit.
I have the executive experience,
interest, scholastic standing, and hence
time, required of the person who is
to organize a functional executive
which will lead your society of 2(XM)
members so that you may enjoy its
benefits more fully.

Student Members
For years the Association of Professional Engineers has been enrolling
third year Applied Science men as
student members. Through the medium of an annual dinner, book prizes,
and speakers, they have maintained
this contact.
The association as set up under the
Engineering Profession Act provides
only for the licensing of engineers,
much as the medical and legal bodies
do. It does not enter the fields of
salary scales and other items affecting
the engineers' status. To fill this gap
the B.C, Engineering Society was
formed about three years ago.
Last year, largely through the efforts
of a group of University of British
Columbia graduate engineers, a junior
section of the B. C. Engineering Society was formed for the purpo.se of
catering to the needs of the younger
men and of arousing more interest
on the part hof members.
Iron Rings: Symbol
Of Eng. Profession
By REX MERRITT
U'hc chmax of every engineering
undergraduate's   career   comes   when
be is presented with his "Iron Ring".
The pledge which accompanies the
presentation of the ring was written
by Rudyard Kipling, and is comparable to the Hippocratic Oath or
the Florence Nightingale pledge, and
is a very solemn occasion in the life
of the young engineer.
The ceremony was started in Eastern Canada in the 1920's and today
the iron ring i.s presented to a student when he graduates in engineering
at any university in Canada. At present, the rings are all made by one
man, a disabled veteran of the first
Great War. Because the Iron Ring i.s
so young, many practising engineers
graduated before its conception and
you will find they do not wear one,
but I hope all Sciencemen who read
this to-day will some day be the
proud possessors of that cherished
symbol.
When MaeTavLsh took me home in a
cab the other night, he said I was
so attractive he could hardly keep
his eyes on the meter.
Little Miss Muffet decided to rough it.
In a cabin both old and medieval,
An engineer espied her
And plied her with cider.
And now she's the forests prime evil.
Here's to the happy, bounding boo,
You cannot tell he from she;
For they ore both alike you see,
But he can tell — and so can she.

Iron Ring Circus
Plays Comrnodor
RALLY ROUND GODIVA
There are queer things done in the name of fun
Under the circus top
And the circus males have their smutty tales
That would make your blood run hot
The  bright  torchlights have seen strange sights
But they saw the strangest thing
That night on the down near Coventry town
When Godiva rode into the ring.
There rose a shout as the clowns went out
At the end of the second act
For the following scene would bring the queen
For whom the tent was packed
"Godiva!   Godiva" the cry went up
From the throat of every man
And into the ring rode a beautiful thing
A fan dancer sans fans.
In the hush that ensued, I swear that you'd
Have heard the drop of a feather
And from then till now I've never known how
That old  tent held  together
For after the lapse of a minute perhaps
The crowd got back  its breath
And the lusty shout that they all gave out
Scared three old maids to death.
As it usually goes, the first five rows
Were full of engineers
And history notes those thirsty throats
Forgot their forty beers.
They broke and tore across the floor
It took us by surprise
And as they rushed the artsmen blushed
And covered up their eyes.
All this took place in the year of grace
Of 1054 A.D.
And the reason for all the terrible brawl
Has never been clear to me.
Until just now and you'll allow
We couldn't have known of course
That before that year an engineer
Had never seen a horse,
Dean's Message To Engineers
For thirty years the Faculty of
Applied Science has been turning out
graduates in diverging series. In 1917
there was one graduate; this year
there are 146 in the graduating class.
Four departments were listed in the
first University Calendar — chemical,
civil, mechanical, and mining. This
year three new departments were
established — agricultural engineering,
architecture, and engineering physics.
Nearly 1500 graduates occupy important positions in the engineering world.
We are justly proud of the record.
Thus far we have been housed inadequately in temporary structures.
We hope that some of the undergraduates now enrolled will receive instruction in the first unit of the
permanent applied science building
now being planned. There is promise
of  better days  for  the second   largest J. F. r Mllayson
university. Dean of the Faculty of Applied Science

With the EUS Circus Train, West Point Grey, Feb. 18—
Ringmaster Gordie Genge, gathering his troupe from under the
cobwebs of winter retirement, announced today he plans to
present the one and only performance of the Iron Ring Circus
Thursday, February 20, under the big top at the Commodore,
starting at 9 o'clock and running to God only knows when.
Dress rehearsal of the redshirt
troupe will be held at noon today in
the winter training ring (auditoriumi
under the direction of assistant ring
master Bert Shore.
Treasurer Bill Gill says mat all the
tickets have been sold to as many
lucky redshirt slipstick clowns as the
big  top  will  hold.
All the acts slated to be presented
at the one night run of this big show
have been arranged and co-ordinated
by trainers Bert Shore, Hugh Gabriels. Jack Hannan. John Allan, Mike
Allen, Ted Greenaway, John Wheeler.
Dave Brousson, Mai Robinson, John
Rome, and Ken Noble.
In addition to a costume, which need
not be a tuxedo, engineers should
bring full celebration equipment.
This equipment includes one female
friend for each celebrant. This item
s indispensable since no engineer can
enjoy himself to the utmost without
one,
Each redshirt should bring as much
"El Stuffo" as he and his woman are
capable of consuming. This step is
necessary since Mr, Kennedy is very
strict in dispensing with his Bacchanalian beverages.
H. C. Gunning
Honorary President of EUS
Literary Skill
Also Necessary
By H. C. GUNNING
I welcome an opportunity to be
associated with the annual effort in
Journalism by the Applied Science
undergraduates. It woud be my wish
to encourage this and similar extracurricular activities that depart from
the applied engineering field. Particularly would this encouragement
be extended toward the development
of a degree of literary skill.
Its is easy to think that an engineer's
work is essentially technical; indeed
much of it is, The broad engineering
training is essential but in most cases
the technical findings must be presented in written form. My own
experience tells me that this is the
most difficult and laborious part of all.
Also it is of great importance, for
poor or ambiguous expression can
lead to serious i,.isinterpretation. A
mediocre investigation that is well
presented can appear to excel a
superior one poorly presented. The
tangible rewards are apt to vary
accordingly.
For most people good writing is
hard writing; patience and much
practice are necessary. No engineering curriculum can be entirely adequate in this respect , in spite of
essays, theses and lab, reports. It is a
skill the individual must attain by
his own effort. Tuutr. est.
ELECTIONS
Elections for next year's president of the Engineer's Undergraduate Society ■will be held next
Wednesday, February 19. It is very
important that every engineer
votes.
Polling booth will be located in
the south end of the Applied
plied Science building, and in the
Science building. Polls will l>e
open all day.
The platforms of the candidates
are elsewhere on this page. Read
them and VOTE.
Gordie Genge
The President
Reports
At 8:30 (?) Friday morning the work
of this year's EUS executive unofficially ends. I say 8:30 because this is
about the time most of the boys roll
in from the ball, still dressed in their
tails and all.
Looking back over the year's work
the first big event was the Annual
Engineer's Banquet which was the
largest ever. Nine hundred and eighty-
two of the fellows turned out and the
good talks, food, and entertainment
were enjoyed by all.
Then as you all settled down to
work for the Xmas exams your executive came up with a unique idea for
the Engineer's Informal. It was held
this year on the last day of exams
and the honored guests (the BAC's)
and all who attended seemed to enjoy
the evening immensely. For the first
time, due to the good work of our
treasurer Bill Gill, this event was a
financial as well as a social success.
Of course all through the year
"Gabe" has been working like the
proverbial beaver keeping the Engineers to the fore in intramural sports,
Naturally along about February
1st everyone began to think about
a summer job and Mai Robinson introduced his plan for registering the
engineers first. It is hoped that you
all will co-operate for your own
good.
Now of course the crowning achievement of this or any other year is
close at hand. Yes the Engineer's
"Irong-Ring Circus" rolls on Thursday night and it will be introduced
by Shore's Pepmeet today at noon in
the Auditorium. Tho executive tried
to make room for everyone and they
are sincerely sorry that there were
not enough tickets to go around. The
table displays promises to be the best
yet, and the prizes are bigger and
better than ever, For the 1206 people
who are going it looks like a gala
evening.
Well fellows I guess that just about
sums up what seemed at the time to
be a large year's work but now that
we can look back on it the year has
gone very quickly and serving you has
been really swell.
Vocational
Guidance
With the creation last year of the
executive position of Professional Relations Representatives, the E.lfS.
took over responsibility for the vocational guidance talks previously given
by the various sectional clubs. Elected
to this post last spring was Dave
Brousson, who has been arranging a
weekly series of lectures at 12:30 on
Thursdays  in   Applied  Science 100.
Speakers to date have been L, B.
Stacey on Electrical. Mr. Smith on
Chemical, Major Grant on Civil and
Structural, Professor Young on the
new course in Agriculture, and Dr.
James on Mining.
The talks are particularly designed
for first and second years of Applied
Science, but a special invitation is
extended to first year Arts Students
who plan to enter engineering.

has been tapering off this final year
and now only studies about 20 hours
each day which gives him just 4 hours
to  idolize Sp.ule Cooler.
George "Canvass-back" (iambic is a
skating fiend and also indulges in
lacrosse and is a large part of that
dazzling Electrical soccer team. Larry
"Mazda" Gill hails from Nanaimo and
is one of the five G.E, wonders in the
class. Hod "Beanpole" MacDonald
doesn't owe all his accomplishments
to the fact that he is Gill's roommate because lie is a stupendous soccer goalie and an ardent hooper—
bescides being a flash on the blades.
Edo "Down Draft" Marzocco blew
in from the Village of Kimberley some
years back and still accounts for u
lot of the hot air in this class float
Hank loves. Tom "Edison" Naylor:
the man who designs the ball displays
and gives Evans a run for his money.
Bob "Bethoven" Cook the staunch
Symphony fan, who hands in his labs
when the spirit moves him, Bob "Sam"
Hill hails from the island, Nanaimo to
be exact. You can always find him
in Aud. 207 tuning up his vocal chords
ov polishing his glass eye. His pet
aversion is disagreeing with Hank.
Donald "Dandy" Evans is a scholarship man in academic endeavours and
it seems equally proficient in shepherding his flock (four) of fair ladies.
Oh its great to drive a limousine.Guy
"Gee-Gee" Klrkpatriek owes his vast
experience to a power commission job
on the island and the Xmas holiday
on Hollyburn.
Lou "Virtuoso" Davies—This budding "Heiffitz" swings a mean bow
and the only thing retarding him
is the fact that the G-string is missing
on his violin. When he isn't playing
the violin, he's skiing. Dave "Haircut" Hnzlewood is one of the Beta
mob which inhabits Hanks's infamous
"Back-Row Gang". Bob "Whirling-
Dervish" Lister seems to see attractions in windows. He has broken at
least two that your scribe can remember and no doubt has several
more to his credit.
Mike "Silent" Lewchuck hails
from King George High and if you
could lift the trunk door on his
car you might wonder at the number
of "Vin Supreme'' jugs that are
usually found there. Eric "Tacoma-
bound" Woods is another of that gang
in the corner that twiddles the radio
dials for the general mob. Roy "Bush"
Bushflcld, the pep meet flash, came
orginally from Langley and unfortu-
anately brought a lot of the local
jokes with him,
Ernie "Zoot" Cooper doesn't! believe
in working till the chips are \ down
but he sure can skate and sell hot-
dogs. His drape pants are always to
be seen under a table where there is
a "heart" game going on. Wally "White
Hose" milter who, with "Killer''
Hayes makes up Bill Rea's staunchest
team of admirers, is one subtler
characters    in    this   class   which    is
Danny's pride and joy. Bob "Padre"
Cox plays a spectacular game of "left
outside" en our grand soccer team,
He is a great one for the finer things
o! life and can quite almost any part
of the "Worlds Best Seller" but the
boys find him pretty week on Gonoses.
.lack "Cherub" Hannah hard work-
in.u AiHK president seems to have
as much trouble with his girl friends
and ihe Co-op as most of us had
writing up exp. 111?. Bill "BCKK" Gill
the stable hand that handles the cash
for the EUS this year is also good
on a drafting board or in a crap
Maine. Gus "Sinus" Saines was the
line type that donated one of his
front teeth to the cause of the footballing Thunderbirds this year. He
also possesses a beautiful yellow
sweater which is the envy of everyone in the class, except Genge, who
has one.
Gord "Stage-Crew" Carter is a hard
working member of the Co-op who
somehow manages to get time to
type the title sheet of his lab write-
ups, George "The Hat" Ward who
basks in the light from Cox's halo
is one of the soccer team's staunchest
supporters. Keijo Scppala, another of
those GE wonders hails from Hammond and can always be interested
in a card game ("hearts" for benefit
of the discipline committee). He is
one of those guys that likes Sibelius,
you know —"Life in the Finland
Woods",   "Woodchopper's  Ball"  etc.
Reg "Frcnchy" Rachine is one of
those happy chaps who can smile
even after a lecture in one of Hank's
courses. He smiles when you ask
him how he is getting along with
his girl friends too. Stan "Doubting
Thomas" Thompson doesn't let a
lecture get by without checking the
professor on the truth of his statements. With Stan in the class we
can rest assured that no fast ones
will be pulled on us in theory or
problems,
Glover  and  James  are  down here
together because they seem to take
turns at attending lectures. Labor
unions demanding a shorter working
week could learn a few things from
these chaps, Erling "Hess" Hesla spends
most of his time on the staff phone
in the shop according to Hank. But
if the latter were to refer to any of
the buxom little numbers on the other
end of the line he would find tills a
terrific   understatement.
Ab "Box Car" MacCorthey has a
terrific affection for free rides whether
it be on skis or on freights, "Always
a goixl guy to have around", says
Ruth. Mike "Card-sharp" Pavich one
of the few fellows in the class who
is easy to please whether its work,
hearts, puns, hearts, girls, or hearts.
He's really a sharpy on the blades.
Gordie "Everybody's Friend" Genge
is also in the class. Gord "all or
Nothing at AH" Ralston will stop at
nothing to get. to Victoria. He even
went so far as to catch pneumonia
to get home at Xmas and incidently
to mias the Xmas Exams. Scott "Silent
No. H" Morrison is a young fellow
who drifts along in his work and is
always right in there at the dances
and parties.

Letter To The Editor
Dear Mr. Anthony:
I am a member of the Engineering
Undergraduate Society, and I also
have a cousin who is an Artsman,
My father has epilepsy and my mother
is suffering from an incurable social
disease, so neither of them can work.
They are totally dependent upon my
two sisters who are working in a
house on Hastings East. My only
brother is serving a life term in prison
for a crime of violence.
I am in love with a girl who operates near our home. She knows
nothing of my background, but says
that she loves me. We intend to get
married as soon as she settlea her
bigamy case which is now in court.
When I graduate, it is our intention to
move to Montreal and open a small
house.
Now my problem is this, Mr. Anthony: In view of the fact that I
intend to make this girl my wife and
bring her into the family, should I
or should I not, tell her about my
cousin   who   is   an   Artsman'.'
Yours,

On Clothes I spend my  legal Tender,
Because this truth I've found:
A dress can make a girl look Slender
And a hundred men look round.
'woman'
She's an angel in truth, a demon in
fiction—
A woman's the greatest of all contradiction;
She's   afraid   of   a   cockroach,   she'll
scream at a mouse,
But  she'll   tackle  a  husband   as  big
as a house.
She'll take him for better, she'll take
him for worse,
She'll split his head open,  and  then
be his nurse,
And when he is well and can get out
of bed,
She'll   pick   up   a   teapot  and   throw
at his head.
She's faithful, deceitful, keen sighted
and blind,
She's crafty, she's simple, she's cruel
she's  kind.
She'll lift a man up, she'll cast a man
down,
She'll make him her hero, her rider,
her  clown,
You   fancy   she's   this   but   you   find
that she's that,
For she'll play like a kitten and fight
like a  cat.
In the morning she will, in the evening she wont'
And you're always expecting she will
but she won't.
You've never been in the 4th year
Civils' room? Hell, you haven't lived
yet.
On entering the inner sanctum, you
will first observe that the civils appreciate the finer things in life which
are pinned up at strategic points in
the room.
A group of men are bent over a
drafting board and Bill Bateman appears to be making a point; but no,
Cliff Redmond cries, "Snake-eyes,
frogskins came to papa."
Morrie Berson, Phil Herring and
Bill Coventry are seen working over
smoking slide rules. Finally Ted
Greenaway breaks in with ''Sa<y
fellows, does your slide rule taste
different lately?"
The majestic serenity is broken by
the rude arrival of six bruisers, covered with ice and snow. Pushing Bud
Gallon and Jughead Kerr aside, they
mumble in a frenzied tone, "Hooley
here?"
The rest of the boys, including
Gordy Tanner, Dave Manning, Bill
Robinson, Fred "I was only doing
15 mph officer" Andrew and Jack
"me too' Wong, are listening to Roy
Tinncy sing his new composition "Low
Tide at Pier D" or "So Do You."
As the applause dies we quietly
leave the civils, but I've got to hurry
back to explain a little Audrey joke
to Ed Homo and Ed Quirk.

"... never   was  so  little   done   by
so  in.iriv " H.V.W.
Strange tilings have he-en done in the
sessions run,
By tiie "men" who toiled we're told.
Varsity's lights  have  seen  strange
sights
But the strangest they ever did see
Was  the day  on the field where the
giants reeled,
And   we   won   our   game . . . 4-3,
Hockey's our game and sheer guts our
fame
And  men  of honour  we,
We'd paste that ball from mall to mall
To pass in geology,
We slugged our way  up the right of
way
And the .score was 3 to 3
Tho battle cry as the blood flowed by
It sloped thru obliquity
And the only one to whimper was the
referee.
Aide, Beveridge, Fyles and Mac
Braced themselves for the attack,
Saying words best forgotten
To the effect "the ump is rotten",
The spearheads launched, the front
was falling,
Your trousers Begum need overhauling,
Durham lit his pipe, Wheeler got
his cue,
Whitney gave the signal and then-
Kaput—Snafu.
Bodies hurtled forward, the ball w*s
given hell,
The goalie lurched and staggered,
Then clutched his throat and fell.
It was maybe Scheldon's jimmy
Or even Dickson's gat.
Douglas packs his dusters,
But don't consider that.
He fell in the line of duty
With a sickly stupid grin
Spread all across his kisser.
He knew he couldn't win.
His weakened form was prostrate
When   Greenius   clinched   the   game
His prof and all his classmates
Say he'll never be the same.
The weapon lies in Durham's pipe
That lethal dealing briar,
Only men of mineral fame
Can take that stenching fire.
Physics
This year's grad class in engineering physics, the first to complete the
course at UBC, consists of a small but
select group of three men: ' .Mainbracc
Bill Matheson, "No Dice Dune" Pitman
and"Dave the Dude" Rose.
These' boys, who have none of the
bad habits of ordinary engineers,
spend all their waking hours applying
such things as differential calculus
and series expansions to harmless
little atoms. Among other things, they
have learned not to be fooled by
promises of free cyclatrons and not
to take any plugged nickles, they may
be radioactive.
"I won't offer you a cocktail Mr.
Jones", said the hostess, "since you
are head of the Temperence League." "No, 1 am head of the Anti-
vice League." "I knew there was
something I shouldn't offer you."
When Jack wanted to know if my
shoulder strap had slipped or if
he was seeing things, I told him
"both".
■Poor little handkerchief,
Don't you cry
You'll be a Bathing suit
Bye and bye,
He: Damn it, I left my watch up the
mountain. She: Don't worry, It'll
run  down.
Jack threatened to jump over a cliff
when I refused his proposal but it
turned out to be a bluff.
When your boy friends calls you the
apple  of  his  eye-be  careful  you
don't get peeled.
The latest  thing  in  mens clothes is*--

An   interview   with   a   member   of       j-,
the   Engineering  faculty,   concerning
his views  on the  Science  Ball  and
table displays, resulted in the following conversational gleanings.
Students in professional -courses
should learn how to live as well as
how to earn a living, The scholastic
record in the Registarr's Office ia
most important, but it does not ■'Hell the
whole story. When engineering companies are looking for graduates they
invariably ask for each student's
scholastic record, but they are definitely interested in his personal qualities such as character, personality and
initiative. In other words they are
looking for men who will make good
all-round representatives of the company in the many contacts they will
be called upon to make.
In this connection courses leading
to a wider knowledge of human relations and human values would be
very desirable but there is little time
for them in Applied Science. Perhaps extra-curricular activities are a
partial answer,
Preparation for the Science Ball may
not take the place of a cultural subject but it has possibilities. The experience of working together for the
success of a common aim has its value. »'
The initiative and enthusiasm shown
by students in the selection and preparation of table displays makes one
question sometimes the value of tha
detailed laboratory experiment.
About the Science Ball itself, members of the staff certainly enjoy tih
distinctive feature of displays. Tha.
there is the opportunity of meeting
students in pleasant siUToundings and
in a general, atmosphere of fun and
good fellowship. Representatives of
companies would be able to estimate
those personal qualities of students
much more easily if they attended*ftie-
Science Ball. All things considered,'

My Dear Mr. Griffin:
Allow me to compliment you, Mr.
Griffin, on your masterly grasp of
the Lord's Day Alliance  Act.
There is no doubt that the 'Commercial entertainment czars," that is,
the organizers of the Symphony Society, Film Society, Legion Concerts
etc., arc wicked people having ult-
orior motives, (They can't fool us
with that professional artist stuff,
can they Mr. Griffin?)
I hope you won't mind then, Mr.
Griffin, if I point out a slight error
in your otherwise completely logical letter. It seems to mo that, (oh
horror of horrors) London has no
blue laws, nor has Paris, nor New
York, nor any other civilized (oops,
I   mean  decadent,   Mr.   Griffin)   city.
So you see that its not only the
"Superior American'1 way of lite
that is loading us into wickedness
Mr. Griffin, but also this forvign influence, which of course, must be
completely eliminated from our good
clean   Canadian   lives.
1 am proud of you Mr. Griffin, for
wet allowing yourself to become per-
wrled by tho morals destroying atmosphere  of  the  university.
And if a meeting can be arranged
between us Mr. Griffin, I have an
alternate use for that "thin edge of
the wedge" which I'm sure you'll be
interested in.

A committee, however, was formed
to look into the question, composed
of Don Cunliffe, John Palmer, and
Augusta Thomasson. The committee
met with Bill McKay and three members of the Discipline Committee at
3:30 p.m. Friday.
SHORT NOON
The resident students' bid for representation was brought to light at a
USC meeting Thursday February 6,
when Bob Curric, president of the
Acadia Council, announced that resident students in Acadia were unable
to take part in university extra-curricular activities at noon, because all
their time was taken up in walking
to and from lunch.
"Acadia students." Currio said at that
time, "are prepared to establish their
own activities here as branches of
clubs now existing on tho campus."
After some debate as to how much
benefit resident students could receive by having representation on
Council, Bill McKay appointed a committee of USC members and resident
students to investigate the matter.
A meeting held Tuesday by this
committee culminated in a recommendation that, while representation
on Council would be inadvisable, Fort
and Acadia Camps should have representation on USC.
NO ADDITION
The reasons for this recommendation
were: that the Student Council already represents the whole student
body, and it would be unfair to allow
one section of -campus life to have
additional representation on Council;
and that tlvo committee felt that
USC and the resident students could
benefit by the inter-exchangjc of
ideas and problems.
Resident students now face three
alternatives in regards to discipline
and representation, says Currie:
1 They can form their own discipline
committee, and act independently
of AMS.
2 They can ignore discipline as a
matter to be left up to the Discipline Committee of AMS.
3, They can continue as they are at
present, with no disciplinary control whatever,
USC REPORTS
A solemn note was injected into
the meeting when committee members
appointed to work with USC reported
'No cooperation—no money." At present students at Acadia receive a
grant of $300 for expenses in keeping
the camps in repair.
The second part of Acadia's meeting
ended in endorsation of Part I of
Acadia's new constitution by the
General Assembly.
Part I, which deals with internal
government was passed with a few
changes.
This constitution was formulated by
president Bob Currie and Jack Birney,
and passed on by a constitution
committee.

MILLS CHARGED
INEFFICIENT
If British Columbia sawmills were
to operate at capacity, twenty percent of tlrem could produce all the
province's present lumber output.
Bert Melsness, secretary-treasurer of
B.C. district council of the International Woodworkers of America, told
a student meeting recently.
Melsness stated that the lumber
industry can afford wage increases,
but the continued operation of inefficient mills keeps prices up, thus

'MENTALpRIEF' QUASHED
IN KITCHEN SUICIDE CASE
By CHARLES MARSHALL
The appeal in the case of Blakely versus Smith (Executor of
Martin Shortal) was dismissed by his worship Honourary Judge
J. E. Eades after he had listened to the evidence presented at
last Thursday's appeal case, heard in the "Supreme Moot Court
of the University of British Columbia."
The hearing was held, as usual, in y
tho Law Library, Hut G1, and was
lypkal of the mock trials taking place
therc> nearly every week-day night.
NO SPOON
The facts in the case were these.
While Martin Shortal was a guest in
the house of his neighbours the
Blakolys, ho committed suicide in
their kitchen by cutting his throat.
No one was home at the time
but shortly later Mrs. Blakely, a
nervous and high strung woman,
returned from shopping and found
Shortal lying on the floor in a pool
of his own blood. Tho police were
called and found Shortal dead, a knife
by his side. Meanwhile Mrs. Blakely,
in a state of nervous hysteria, had to
bo taken to n doctor and was unable
to "return home for several days.
Action was brought against Shortal's
estate- for the mental suffering he had
caused her but the case was dismissed.
Thursday's trial was an appeal against
this dismissal.
Counsel for the Appellant was L. M.
McDonald and Counsel for the Respondent, W. L. Warner. Both are second year law students. They were assisted in preparing their cases by M. E.
McGowan, P. D. Meyers, H. McLough-
lin and I. E. McPherson all in first year
law.
REGAL SiPLENDOR
Commerking at 7;30 p.m., the court
was callecl to order by c A| Walken,
acting as I Registry ancj for amlost
three houlrs the ou^ellors pleaded
their cases%Mor'tAtt'judge, who gat
before therri^ku>enMg patiently and
interjecting ocWion'lly to make some
point clear in lifs mind.
Each mock lawyer had before him
a   number   of   ponderous   law   books
from which he quoted from time to
time to exemplify his point.
PROCEDURE ACCURATE
According to court proceedings each
counselor must present a written copy
of his proposed argument to his opponent in order not to surprise him
on any point, Therefore after the
main portion of the hearing was over
both lawyers had a rebuttal prepared,
in which they attempted to show flaws
in the other's case.
When both sides had presented then-
case, Judge Eades gave his decision in
favour of the Respondent and dismissed the appeal, at the same time
giving his reasons for doing so. The
court was then adjourned.
Mock trials, such as Thursday night's
have been sponsored by the Law
Faculty ever since its estabUshment
and are designed to give the older
students a place in which to practice
what they have learned in lectures.
DOWTOWN AID
In each case, the students are given
a set of facts and told to prepare their
argument. On the appointed night
they present the findings before the
judge, usually a prominent downtown
lawyer, such as Mr. Eades, who has
donated his services for the evening.
Since facilities of the Law Library
aro limited, the mases vised most often
take the form of appeals where the
only requisite is an exacting knowledge of the law.
'Social Medicine'

talks on socialized medicine presented by the Pharmaceutical Socirty
of the university, Mr. J. V. MacDonald will address students on Wednesday, February 19 at 12:30 p.m. in

Candidates OK
Article XXIV
Article XXIV of the AMi .-ork is
of sufficient value to the university
to remain intact, in the opinions of
Pat McGeer and Dave Comparelli,
rival candidates for the composite
position of Men's Athletic Association president and chairman oe the
Men's Athletic Directorate.
In interviews with Tiie Ubyssey
■ports department Saturday both
candidates expressed the administration of the article rather than the
article itself has been the chief cause
of the friction between tlu- MAD and
certain athletes who were charged
under Article XXIV with p'a/ing
on outside teams without the- permission of the directorate.
WOULD RELAX RULE
Both candidates advocated a relaxation of the enforcement of the
regulation on the grounds that such
t ruling is not applicable at the present time.
McGeer said the regulation "should
remain in the code, but should be
relaxed a little."
Comparelli stated that the MAD
has set "a bad policy" this year, expressing the hope that enforcement
of the regulation in the future s'oulcl
be less harsh. He favored tbj retention of Article XXTV be.ause "although it (the article) is not essential
at the present time, the day will
come when the university will definitely need such a regulation."
As chairman of the Men's Athletic
Directorate, I will propose the following:
1. Full support for the completion
of the War Memorial Gym.
2. Co-ordination of intramural
and extramural sports.
3. Extension of athletic facilities-
more playing fields and construction
of a field-house.
4. Formation of a Joint Men's and
Women's Board for more efficient
handling of finances.
5. Elimination of the oppressive elements in the Athletic Code,
As a member of the MAD since its
revision two years ago—senior manager last year and treasurer this year,
I feel that my sincere interest and
experience will furnish the necessary
continuity and co-operation for the
promotion of university athletics.
DAVE COMPARELLI
PAT MCGEER
As a candidate for the presidency
of the Men's Athletic Department, I
would like to present the following
platform which I am willing and anxious to see carried out if elected.
1. Increased flexibility in the administration of Article XXIV.
2. Actively promoting to the high
schools and public of Vancouver and
British Columbia intercoilegiate athletics in order that the standards of
our athletics will improve in keeping
with the  size  of our university.
3. Increased emphasis on intercollegiate competition for the "minor"
sports on the campus.
I believe the good will and keen
athletic competition we extend to
cur American neighbors is worthy of
our concerted efforts to maintain and
improve.

UBC BOXERS ELIMINATED
FROM GOLDEN GLOVES
By JIM GOVE
Hard luck and good opponents dogged the UBC Boxing Club when they invaded the Sun
Golden Gloves Tournament over the weekend.
Against terrific opposition five of the Varsity fisticuffers fought their way to either the
semi-finals or finals while the remaining eight met defeat earlier in the eliminations, where,
due to the unique set-up of the organization, the y met the best in their classes.
All in all the University boys put
up a good show and in the semi-final
das': the decisions handed down were
in no way popular with the crowd.
Phil Olson, the heavyweight contender, had a disappointing stroke of
bad luck when in the first round of
his fight he suffered a nasty gash over
his right eye. The presiding doctor
refused to let Olson continue. Without a question of a doubt Olson would
have copped the heavyweight title and
this was a bad blow to UBC.
Jim Casey, popular lightweight contender won the Hard-Luck Loser's
Trophy, after winning by a knockout
and losing by a decision,

opened the scoring for the Willamette
squad in the Saturday fracas, the
Bearcat were never ahead, Although
the 'Birds managed to trade point for
point for the first five minutes, two
quick baskets by Perry gave the
Bearcats an 8-4 bulge and they maintained their lead from there on.
The first half proved to be full of
close checking and low scoring. The
Thunderbird squad seemed to be concentrating on working the ball around
while the Willamette boys were capitalizing on fast breaks. The end of
the half came with the 'Birds trailing
on the short end of a 22-19 count.
FELL APART
It was from the four minute mark
of the second half that the 'Bird
machine started to fall apart at the
seams. The Bearcats' shots were hitting the hemp with discouraging regularity. The 'Birdmen couldn't hit a
thing.
The speed was terrific and the visitors had used up their five time-outs
when they had to take an extra one
at the expense of a technical foul.
It was a young man by the name of
"Rags" Ragsdale that was doing most
of the damage as far as the 'Birds
were concerned. It seemed that the
fast Willamette forward just couldn't
go wrong. After eight minutes of
torrid play, the Bearcats and Hags-
dale had built up a healthy 44-34
margin.
It looked as though there still might
be a chance as the 'Birds were still
fighting hard to make their shots
count but Lady Luck was patrolling
the other end of the floor. With seven
minutes to go, the 'Birds were showing
signs of becoming tired and discouraged. In the last three minutes, the
Willamette team surged on to win
going away.
MCGEER HIGH
Pat McGeer played a good game for
the UBC team, netting 18 points during the evening. He was topped only
by Ragsdale of Willamette who swished 21 of the best. Bob Haas worked
hard for the 'Birds, picking off 10
points in the process.
In the Friday night affair, Willamette took an early lead in the first
ten minutes but the 'Birds gradually
crept up until, after the lead had
changed hands several times, the
'Birds held a 24-24 bulge at the half.
Gar Robinson
Heads East
For Dominions
Varsity's king of the skis, Garvin
Robinson, has been given one of the
luckiest breaks in his skiing career.
Last night Gar left on TCA for St.
Anne, Quebec, where this year's Dominion Championships are being held
this Thursday to Sunday.
If Gar, who is the new western
Canadian downhill and slalom champ,
places up in the winning circle In
the downhill and slalom events, he la
assured of a spot on the Canadian
Olympic team when the winter games
are held in February, IMS.
It's a nice break for Gar and the
whole University will be behind him
100%.
UBC Grassmen
Tie With Varsity
On the campus Saturday, Grass
Hockey fans saw the most exciting
game of the season played off between Varsity and UBC. Varsity
went all out in an atempt to gain
those few necessary points needed to
nudge UBC from the top spot, but
only succeeded in bringing th game
to a 3-all draw.
The fastest footwork of the year
was displayed in the first fiftseni
minutes of play as both teams released that energy they had been:
saving for this special event. Varsity
opened the scoring with a shot from
the stick of Gus Decoque. Les Bulls n tied the score and later tallied
again on a beautiful corner shot pass
from Joe Piercy. Stefan Arneson
brought Varsity back into the running but Tom Wilkinson again put
UBC ahead. From then on Varsity
held the play but only managed to
lock the score at a 3-all tie. Bruce
Benham   drove   in   the   last   counter.
In the other City League game,
Vancouver defeated North Shore 2-1.
