Get Rich Quick?
Students should view with the utmost suspicion the activities of the National Campus Club's merchant discount plan.
There are several reasons, none of them conclusive, but all
of sufficient weight to justify a healthy doubt.
First, there is the argument based purely on the grounds
of good business principles. It seems incongruous that a
commerce student, a student ostensibly trained to practice the
highest in business ideals, should be named the campus manager of a plan which refutes one of the basic laws of economics
and business today -*■ the one-price system.
In .every case, the Better Business Bureau and Chamber
of Commerce contacted by the Ubyssey in its investigations,
condemned the plan as undesirable from a businessman's
Secondly, there is the argument based on common sense.
Assuming that a student would receive a discount of 10 per cent
at a certain store, it would be necessary for him to spend $1000
before he could save even so much as $100. It is a very rich
student who can affoed to spend $1000 per year in the categories included under the plan.
Third, students in their everyday life on the campus have
very little knowledge of the inner workings of student offices
and government. The Alma Mater Society would undoubtedly
incur the disfavor of merchants not in the plan, since their
volume of business might decline.
To lose the good will of certain stores in Vancouver who
have contributed generously to such projects as the War
Memorial Gym fund is not a happy prospect to consider.
While there is no evidence that the purveyors of the plan
are attempting to be anything but honest, the merits of thu
plan are open to very strong criticism.
There have been attempts in the past to start plans of
this -nature.
In those days, they used tar and feathers.

MEMBERSHIP CARD which National Campus Club planned
to sell on campus-has been stopped by Student Council. Three
separate organizations, one at Palo Alto, California where the
group started 10 months ago, have disapproved of the scheme.
Two Vancouver groups have stated their disapproval of it also.
Host Of Suggestions
For Campus Groups
The following list of recommendations has been handed
down by George Cummings, Co-ordinator of Actviities, for any

Weapons Against Atom
Bomb Obsolete-Lotskar
Conventional defense weapons are obsolete against the
atomic bomb, said Joe Lotzkar before, the Parliamentary
Forum, Wednesday.
Speaking for the affirmative of the$>
motion,  "Resolved  the atomic  bomb
removes   the   need   for   conventional
defenses,"   Lotzkar   maintained   that
there is no defense against the atomic
bomb, except being the aggressor.
Production of armaments is wasteful," he said. "Obsolete weapons arc
manufactured in the United States
to bolster its economy. Should war
fears be dissipated, a chaotic depression would be precipitated."
He thought a better defense would
be to place the economy on a completely  peacetime basis.
Speaking for the negative side of
the motion, Ron Birnie said that conventional weapons were a necessity
because a defense was needed against
the atom bomb carrier, and occupation armies were required to complete
a  victory.
He upheld the need for alliances to
protect smaller countries which clo
not have the bomb. "Small countries
must ally themselves with countries
having the atomic bomb," he said.
In conclusion, he said that although
the atomic bomb has changed the
manner of warfare, "we can't abandon
conventional  war  measures."

Campus Organizer Expects 4000
UBC Students to Become Members
National Campus Club has been refused permission to sell
memberships on the UBC campus by Student Council, and
U,BC's governing body has gone on record as disapproving of
the organization's scheme.
National Campus Club planned to sell membership cards
to students for $3 each.
Cards would be good for discounts ranging from 10 to 25
per cent at stores under contract to the Club throughout tho
Some merchants have already signed up and a fourth year
Commerce student has been appointed campus manager.
Three Organizations Disapprove
Ubyssey in\ estigations revealed that Vancouver's Better
Business Bureau, the Retail Merchants Asociation of Canada
Incorporated and the Palo Alto Chamber of Commerce and
Civic Association at Stanford University where the club was
started ten months ago, were all opposed to the scheme.
In an air-mail letter from Palo Alto California, Linn Winter-
botham, secretary-manager of the Chamber of Commerce said
that this type of club had met with considerable opposition
from practically all the merchants in Palo Alto.
At Stanford, the Club had a membership of 750 persons,
500 of whom were expected back this fall. An active membership drive is in progress to recruit more members.
Canadian organizer for the club said he expected that
the club would have over half a million members soon.
The club planned to award scholarships to the universities
where they operated and give premiums in the form of football tickets. * ,
UBC First Campus in Canada
No scholarships or premiums have been awarded at any
university where the club is now operating. UBC was the first
Canadian university approached.
Canadian organizer stated that he expected to sign up
4000 students at UBC.
In his letter to the Ubyssey, Mr. Winterbotham stated that
the Palo Alto Chamber of Commerce was opposed to such
schemes since "it would undermine our entire system of retail
business and would give certain special privileged groups an
unfair and unwarranted advantage over the general public
required to buy at accepted standard prices."
"Authorities at Stanford," said Mr. Winterbotham, "tell
usjhat this is a non-profit organization incorporated under
the laws of the State of California."
"The Club," he continues, l,is not sponsored in any way
by the university and does not have its sanction from the
point of view of desirability . , ."
Better Business Bureau officials in Vancouver stated that
the scheme is "contrary to the best business principles.
Practice Is Unfair Competition
"Retail Merchants Association," they stated, "regard such
practices as unfair competition."
Retail Merchants Association commended the stand of
Student Council ■ in disapproving the plan and refusing to
allow the Club to sell memberships on the campus.
"We are," the provincial manager of the Association said,
"opposed to this sort of plan."
Officials of tne Club came before Student Council Tuesday
in an effort to obtain sanction of the plan.
Council went on record a.s disapproving of the scheme and
forbade the sale of membership cards on the campus.
■     Officials of the Club said the' cards could be sold through
stores who have signed up for the plan,
City Hall Licensing Department investigated the Club's
plan and said thoy would have to be licensed lo soil cards in the
One merchant who had signed a contract cancelled it when
the Club officials asked him to give a 20 per cent discount.
He stated he had been, giving 10 per cent off on jewellery
repairs to UBC students anyway and did nol  feel a L!0 per cent
j discount   was justified. Page 2

Qreful, Mr. Cameron!
.... We are somewhat bewildered bv lhe
sweeping .statements of the loeal CCF leader,
Colin Cameron.
jMr. Cameron, in a fit of prophecy, has
promised either "a groat social  revolution''
or a "world  war"  within  five years.
.•"•i,    We do not know what Mr, Cameron has
ill mind in his prediction of a "^reat social
■  ,*a,!    fe.
fi^|jiution" but we are sure he doesn't mean
,|hu' sort with hand bombs and tommy guns
^jt^shed under the beds of every good citizen.
A#,  Apparently  he   refers  to  the  trend   towards the welfare state.
• But the trend toward the welfare state
is a concept of evolutionary socialism. And
evolutionary socialism in the best Fabian
tradition is a slow, painful, careful and smooth
transition. It is not a thing which runs its
course in five, ten, or even fifty years. It
may reach a certain point in five years but
what that .point in the trend will be is
impossible to determine within a wealth of
fact which cannot be found without close
knowledge of the whims and beliefs of the
great mass of people. And we do not see
how anyone can predict the whims of people
en masse.
Presumably Mr. Cameron is of the opinion that capitalism in its present Norlh
American phase will be unable to avoid a
depression within the next, five'years unless
a war intervenes.
Ii a depression does strike, Mr. Cameron
heilevcs that people en masse will be convinced, that the welfare state is the answer
to their problems.
But the situation i.s much more complex
than Mr. Cameron seems to realize—though
with. Ids long political experience he ought
to have a firm grasp of the implications of
his political philosophy.
The thing is that even in the U. S. the
wellarc slate is developing—not suddenly
but, in accordance with the traditional theory
ol evolutionary socialism.
The trend in North America ha.s reached
the point whore a new depression will be
vastly different than the last one. It may
accelerate the trend to the welfare state
but there is reason to suppose that it will
violently alter its nature.
Sweeping statements, Mr. Cameron, are
always dangerous.
The anthropoid-apes gathered in an establishment known as The Commodore
Cabaret on Wednesday evening. When they
were not throwing their food at one another,
they were telling the guest speaker to "sit
down, you've had your time." While they
ale they got well oiled and when they were
finished they put on a sideshow for the
people of Vancouver by parading through
town. In short, the Engineers staged their
annual banquet.

today that she is "one of the most accomplished pickpocket; in the worltJ,"' as site
read her worn Bible.

with the presentation of some adorable
pink brushed rayon pyjamas, shirred
for'Cozy' warmth at wrist and ankle,
and worn by the just as adorable
rndd'el MARY TAYLOR. A novel note
was presented by a demure blue
gown, complete with hem-placed pockets for ley tootsies, modelled by AMS
secretary KAY MacDONALD.
Suits and tailored coats still form
the basis of the co-ed's casual wardrobe.   Rating   special   attention   is   a
toasty-warm Station Wagon coat,
trimmed with brown fur, and lined
with Teddy-bear cloth and red flannel, worn with plaid slacks by DON-
NIE SPARLING. Perfect for football
games. The material is corduroy, used
lavishly in brilliant shades of red
and yellow. Old favorite grey is still
much in evidence in both coats and
suits, but a colorful tweed-mixture,
worn with a jewel-tone dress that
picks out one of the tweed colors is
new and exciting.
For afternoon wear, fur-trimmed
coats for outdoors and shot taffeta
for indoors are keynotes. AND, brown-
and-black is the color combination of
the season. MARY LEITERMAN wore
a dress combining both these qualities
-black taffeta with brown and black
stripe   giving   hipline   interest  and   a
panel effect in back. Modelled by
ADLELE GOULT was a luxurious
full-length grey Persian lamb, worn
over a very simple ar.d cla-tling tangerine wool circus.
Details of note: the voluminous
side-drape-and-droop, straight from
Paris, the double collar effect, the
jewel-tone petticoat worn with a dark
dress, and the coat color of the season: RED. Thc most exciting of the
afternoon clothes was modelled by
SHIRLEY SELMAN, last year's Mardi
Gras Queen. She wore a beautiful
bronze satin suit, just the color of her
hair, trimmed with quilted and jewelled collar and pockets, and a most
desirable short squirrel coat. All the
hats were small, and most accented
the profile by a side-swept line of
felt or feathers.
The sensation of the evening was
caused by a red satin gown modelled
in a kne-.vi-.-.g manner by DENYS*E
r-IE'RCE. This creation of the California designer, Peggy Hunt, looks
most Parisienne with new spiral draping that wings out to one side, and
a very bare top. JAN OLSEN wore a
navy taffeta with shirred bodice, sash
effect, and a graceful rainbow hueel
skirt. Two startling numbers were a
green mauve and purple striped short
evening dress, bare-topped or jacketed,
and a mysterious black velvet cape
worn with a classic white jersey dress.
The climax of the show was a weeing portrait with the bridesmaids in
turquoise and dark red velvets, and
the bride, SUSAN JAMES, stunning
of course, in Elizabethan styled white
velvet and heavy satin with a long
filmy train.

Out-Weighed 'Birds
Behind 8-Ball Again
Injuries Plague UBC Eleven
As 30 Entrain for Bellingham
Only one factor threatens to be the downfall of UBC Thunderbird gridmen this Saturday when they take on Western
Washington Vikings; the Norsemen outweigh UBC almost 15
pounds per man. &
Western Washington is noted for its
Hoop Selection Begins
As Season Draws Nigh
With the annual Bird-Grad basketball game only a few
weeks away, Head Coach of Basketball, Jack Pomfret, has begun to select men to play for UBC this year.
Some 36 potential hoop stars will be
heavy cutting line that infiltrates opposing forward walls to break up
plays before they get started.
TTiis hard driving crew were responsible for keeping Pacific Lutheran from running wild with their near-
perfect passing attack when those two
teams squared off last weekend.
And UBC's line is bad off right now
with old faithful Bob Murphy out of
this Saturday's contest.
Murphy who has played inspiring
ball in the inglorious centre spot this
season, has been deemed out of action
with a crocked knee.
Rest of the line will be intact but
Murphy's weight and might will be
sorely missed.
E'ackfielder Freddie French, back
with the squad after an early-season
diciplinary dismissal, has suffered a
pelvis injury in recent practices, making him number two man to miss the
Viking venture.
Welcome news came with the announcement that lightweight George
Puil, hopeful halfback who scored
both touchdowns against Eastern Oregon last weekend, has sufficiently recovered from a shoulder injury to be
in strip again for the Bellingham invasion game.
Puil was in such pain from his shoulder in the Oregon game that shots of
novocain were used to keep him in
the game.
Ball strategist Leo Lund, newly acquired quarterback, will be handling
the plays when 'Birds face Vikings.
Luriiflffis^a vast amount of experience in. this position with local clubs
and heady play-calling will make him
a man to be feared in opposing clubs.
But weight is still the prime factor
in the ball game, and that's where
UBC falls down.
Offsetting this handicap is a routine
of plays, quick deceptive lateral plays
mostly, that gain yards without having
to use too much bodily force. Plays
of this kind, together with a few
tricky reverses, were responsible for
both touchdowns against Eastern Oregon. And they might be able to dp
the same job again this week.
Dougie Reid, reported to be in poor
shape will be okay for Saturday's
contest. Reid was plagued with an
ankle injury that he picked up in
California last Christmas.
About thirty team members will
leave university tomorrow early to
get down in plenty of time to loosen
up their muscles after the trip.
Sweaters, Banquet
Plans Topics of
Big Block Meeting
Distribution of sweaters to
last year's winners will be one
of the main activities on the
program of Big Block Club's
first meeting of the new term.
Program for the fall term will be
presented for approval of Block members when they meet Monday, October 17 in Arts 101 at 10:30.
All members already having sweaters
arc asked to wear them to the conference.
Discussion of the Fall Banquet,
annual fixture with the club, will
take up much of the time at the meeting.
A few past Block Club members are
known to be back in the campus once
more, but Block president Stan Clarke
has no way of contacting them. Lost
members are asked to get in touch wath
Clarke as soon as possible.
selected from the 50 or more men currently turning out for basketball
A new system of selection has been
set up this year to ensure that Pomfret will miss no talent in his search
for players.
Last year the poorer quality men
were discarded and the remainder of
the hopefuls were allowed to turn
out. This year,, a selection of phjers
who will definitely play for the university is made and the remainder-
continue to turn out.
In this way any player who is slow
working up to good form in the first
few weeks 'will still be able to show
his qualities before the final group
of players is picked.
The list of the chosen few contains
the names of about fifteen men at
present. Among those who have been
picked are returning 'Birds like Bill
Bell, Reid Mitchell, Norm Watt, Nev
Munro and Pete Walker.
Another name on the list is that of
John Southcott who is the only member of the Rae, Desaulnier, Southcott
trio to return to active basketball at
UBC this year.
Outstanding this year is the ex-Ma-
gee freshman, Tom Gutteridge,
The list also contains the names of
Long John Forsyth and Art Phillips.
Judging from current practices, the
lanky star of last year's 'Bird team,
Forsyth will have a run for his money
to retain his first string centre slot
over the rapidly  improving Phillips.
Laithewaite Looks
For Double Win
Varsity ruggermen again take
to the pitch Saturday and this
time coach Al Laithewaite expects a win.
In the first division the Chiefs pair
off with the North Shore All Blacks
for a 3 o'clock tilt at Confederation
Park. The boys have been working
hard and are a good bet to defeat the
All Blacks who lost their last week's
They will be matched with Meralomas, the team which bested the
Chiefs by a narrow 5-3 margin last
weekend. The encounter will take
place at 3 p.m. at Brockton Point.
