"By Friday night we probably will not have reached our
2500 pint quota," Nurse J. N. Mawer, Blood Clinic supervisor
told the Ubyssey, "but we will still have about 300 pints more
than last year when the student body was 2000 stronger.
Students have not let us clown!"
At   noon   yesterday   1309   pints   h;;d$>    --      -
been received, and by today the clinic
hopes to have about 1(500 pints.
As far as faculties aro concerned,
engineers are ahead in percentage of
their mass, and artsmen are ahead in
actual numccr. Nurses' faculty has
given almbst 100 percent donation,

Ubyssey sponsored .journalism
classes will begin today at 12:30
p.m., in lii'ork Hall stage room.
All staff members and reporters
of The Ubyssey are expected lo
attend. Iho classes will also he open
to any other interested sludents on
the ciitupus.
In addition to news writing classes, special speakers will be brought
to the campus from downtown
"When we asked for 2500 pints of
blood, we had hopes that we would
have enough for a month's supply
for Vancouver," Mrs. Mawer stated,
"but UBC has given up their full
cooperation, and maybe next time we
will reach our quota. We hope to be
here in February again."
"One of the biggest enemies of the
blood clinic is fear, and almost every
student donor feels it. They laugh
when it is all ovqr but a\'e all ^afraid
beforehand. We have tried to tell the
sludents that there is nothing to be
afraid of, but they can't seem to
overcome  it."
"The only safety precaution we took
wa.s to warn them not to clo any
strenuous activities for about 12 hours.
They would have clone the same if they
had had a heavy nosebleed.'
"We always have a doctor in the
blood room a.s well as one or two
nurses, and there are seven Nurses;'
Aids, two technicians and ten volunteers. Jim Sutherland, AMS president,
has been canvassing the classrooms for
donors, • and has had exceptionally
good results. Every department on the
campus helped us."
One of tho most common questions
was "What :s the difference between i
the types of blood," anti if told  they '
had    blue    blood,    they    immediately
connected themselves with the aristo- :
cratic  bluebloods  of old. J
Nurses' report was that all students i
were frightened, but boys would not j
admit  it  while girls  would. j
One thing which was definitely
pointed out by the clinic was that'
students have NOT let the Red Cross
down. Although they have not reached
their quota, they have received full
cooperation from the campus a.s a
whole and wish to thank the students
for their help.
Any students who have not donated
so far, may still do so today, and in
the Red Cross House on Pender St.,
at any time after that.

Students And
Veterans On
Equal Basis
Govern me nf Aid
To Scholarship
Plan States P.M.
Canadian universities may get the
same deal as veterans. Prime Minister
JU;„i.'s Si.. Laurent announced recently.
In a 20-minule talk to students attending the National Federation of
Canadian Universities conference, the
Fri me Minister stated that universities
throughout Canada may get aid on a
similar   basis   to   that   given   veterans.
He stated that within the limits of
federal jurisdiction the governm,' nt
would, lend a sympathetic ear to their
request for a national' scholarship
He stated thai the problem was a
serious one lo handle since the question was one allocated to the provinces
under the British North America Act.
"We'll do as well for the next generation as the last generation have
done   for   us,"   he   asserted.
"I don't know how the awarding
of scholarships on a national basis
could be clone without giving the
federal government control over such
provincial matters," Mr. St. Laurent
The Royal Commission on the arts
letters and sciences was set up to
study such problems, the Prime Minister told the representatives of 60.-
000 students.

Invasion Successful
Announces Legion
Saturday's Bellingham Invasion was
a financial success said Al Westcock,
.secretary of the Legion Entertainment   Committee,   yesterday.
Six Legion busses were crowded to
capacity. Other students crowded private cars. Ticket sales at Bellingham
passed   the  one thousand  mark.
When asked if Legion would sponsor
future invasions, Mr. Westcock said,
"Perhaps, if conditions warrant it."
He also said that the Legion felt that
perhaps sponsorship in future might
be undertaken by the Student Council.
Sludents who took part in "Operation Thunderbird," generously praised
the Legion for initiating the scheme.

$v\ore /Downs/ Than 'Birds Do
Contrary to other press reports, here is
what   really  happened  at  the  Thunderbird-
' Viking   football   game    in    Bellingham   last
weekend :
Armed wilh the standard equipment for
'all football fans: namely, a 2(! of rye, a bottle
of 7 Up and an ordinary glass tumbler, we
took a seat on the 40-y; rd line.
We watched with keen inierest the
weaving of tho other team's ball-carrier, who
finally tumbled to iho ground and reminded
us of the lumbler we had in our hands, so
we poured a small one which wo drank.
After the first touchdown, someone behind us muttered, "I hope he kicks the
convert under the bar," which reminded us
of the last time we were kicked under a bar,
so we poured ourselves another small one,
whieh we drank.
Looking at the scoreboard, we found the
Vikings were seven up on us, so we got even
by pouring some 7 Up and mixing ourselves
a small one, which we drank.
Soon we noticed cheerfully that the Birds
were- making progress on their own 20, so
while- wondering if we were making as much
progress on our own 2J1, we poured ourselves
a. small one, which we drank. From where
we sat, it looked like about 5 down and 21
to go, so wo poured another small one—for
a gain of aboul two ounces-—which we drank.
Aggressively, we advanced on our own
2f' hy mean-; of a "T" formation—-l'T" I'or
Taste and "T" for 'Ihroal—after pouring our
selves a small one, which we drank.
Deciding that the only way to make progress was to get in a good hefty kick, we
poured a small one with a good hefty kick
in it, which wc drank.
After the kick, the rye trickled down
from our 20, bul we managed to make a
ouick pickup and elbow our way another
few ounces down the bottle, from which we
We watched with keen interest the weaving of the whole field, including the goalposts, then drank another small one, which
we poured. Having advanced ten ounces,
we gained a first down, then really pitched
into bottle fiercely, which we drank.
We gave the bottle-carrier a nasty tumbler from our 26, then refused to worry
about the 7 Up, at least until the end of the
first quart.
We were clown 8 at the half, so we determined to get 7 Up by mixing ourselves a
small one, which we clowned.
Well into the second half of our 26, we
advanced during the last quart, elbowing our
way through several hefty kicks, which we
Finding each more encouraging than the
last, we selved our pours several quick downs

To the Editor
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
I was somewhat sr.r.ni'ud at your
editorial of October 18 .It \v >uld hardly be the policy of your paper to misrepresent facts, therefore, 1 cannot
but conclude that in this case you
have not bothered to enquire.
Mr. Editor, did you attempt to interview Mr. Hunter on the charges that
you have made aga: :::'. h::n in the
past few weeks? Did " u ;.t unpl to
discover that the shert-:<e '''' required
texts is in large measure d'v t<> tho inadequate information .-■ :b;ni.tecl by
the students to their pi-.il'es ;< is, and
thereby handed on to the bookstore?
Have you, Mr. Editor, ever attempted
to deal with publishers? Would you
advise thc bookstore to run a elfarity
organization, and operate at a loss
by stocking superfluous numbers of
Mr. Editor, is -it your habit to accuse people of cowardice indiscriminately, or to refuse to accord them thc
common politeness of 'Mr.' prefacing
their name?
Your article was no credit to The
Ubyssey, Mr. Editor, If a man refuses
to defend himself, it can also indicate-
that he prefeis to discuss the subject
w?th someone who has first troubled
to ascertain the facts.
Yours Truly,
Y. Agnzarian, Arts III,

'Bird Hoopers Shape Up

Twelve men have been named on a tentative Thunderbird
basketball team and are currently working out five times a
Of the twelve, eight will probably

A "Chief" entry in order i'o develop
their   potentials.
MAD recently made official the
announcement of the basketball
coaching staff at UBC, and an interesting appointment' is that of last
year's Chief coach Doug Whittle to
the Bird coaching staff as assistant
lo Head  Coach  Pomfret. ,
Ole Bakken will take over the
reins as mentor of vhe Chiefs while
newly acquired Dick Penn will run
the Inter A "stars of the future"
into the maple courts.
Bakken will have some outstanding
ball handlers under his eye, including
Dave Mitchell, Bill Boulding, Bill
Raptis, and Denny Wotherspoon.
Mike Ryan, Jack Ritchie, Vic Cue,
and former Penticton star Nick
Drosses will be out with the Frosh
Inter A group under Penn's guidance.
Only holdup in the basketball department at present seems to be the
lack of team managers.
Basketball manager Ole Oestrom still
is looking for four more managers
and assistant managers to handle the
three hoop Veams.
Hockey Squad Cut
To 18 Members
As Season Nears
The UBC Thunderbird hockey
squad was trimmed to a workable 18 aspirants from the initial 60 who were on hand at
the season's start. With the
season's opening less than two
weeks away the squad is now
down to serious scrimmaging.
All last season's regulars were retained as well as newcomers. Of these
nine, one is a goalie, three are ,de-
l'ensemen and four are forwards.
Ken Torrence, ex-Alberta U. goal-
tender i» battling with Don Adanu
for that position. It is likely that both
boys will see action before a selection
is definitely made.
On defense Jack McFarlane is the
outstanding addition. Having played
with Medicine Hat Tigers of the tough
prairie junior loop, he is a big, heady
defender who will add much power to
the rearguard.
Wag Warner has moved back to defense to partner Terry Nelford in
what should be an outstanding combination. Don McWhirter, a promising
newcomer frcm Kimberley, and Mai
Hughes a returnee, round out the
Hugh Berry is the big addition to
the forward lines. He will likely form
a line with Fred Andrew and Bob
The Drake-Lindsay-Bailey combination is intact and flying. Another line
will be composed entirely of rookies.
There are four prospects in the
running, with all thc boys in lino for
at least one game before any .selection
in made. These include Merl MeDon-
nld, a graduate of the U of S who i.s
doing post-graduate work here. He is
a red-headed speedster who reminds
one of Lloyd Torfason,
Al Hood, Bruce Barnes, and John

In the end hustle and spirit will de-
dee ido who will be retained.

Lord, MacFarlane Showing
Top Form in Workouts
With UBC's Thunderbird Gridmen facing what will possibly be their toughest opposition of this whole season in the
Stadium Saturday, head coach Orville J3urke has been prepping
his charges for wide open, free running ball game.
Concentration   this   last   week   has$>
been on Burke's vast variety of wide
sweeping   end   plays,   instead   of   on
line   crashing   manoevers.
News from Central Washington College of Education (plus a few kind
words of warning from coaches of
teams that have already played the
league leaders), indicates that the
Wildcats are too heavy in the line to
allow their foes to gain many yards
that way.
Only way that UBC is going to get
anywhere with the Wildcats is to
sneak around the ends and go over
top of the line with a series of passing plays.
Backfield men have been running
through Burke's pet lateral plays foi'
the past week. Counting variations,
Thunderbirds have now a repetoire
of about 23 plays to spring against
CWEC. ■<
With fullback Don Lord showing his
old superb form that made him recognized as a top back in recent years,
and Dave MacFarlane playing his
best yet, as well as adding weight
to the backfield, UBC should be able
to pick up a good many first downs
from the Washington crew.
MacFarlane's blocking and hitting
power will allow lightweights like
Georgie   Puil   and   quarterback   Leo
Whittle Handed
Coaching Task
Doug Whittle, one of the
Atheltic directors on the campus, has been appointed assistant Thunderbird basketball
coach under head mentor Jack
Whittle,   after  expressing   early   in
the season his intentions to stay out
of  the  hoop  picure,  has come  back
to  take an active part with the top
university team.
Coaching UE'C  Chiefs of the  local
Senior A  league last season, Whittle
has had much experience in basketball circles.
Chiefs' coach for the current season
will be Graduate Manager of Athletics
! Ole Bakken, while newcomer on the
! athletic staff Dick Penn will take
: over the direction of Braves, the new
; Inter A calibre team made up of frosh
! and some second year men.
Lund   to   get   somewhere   on   their
Quarterbacking duties will be split
between Hugh MacArthur, who says
that he's alright now lo play, and
little Lund, but whichever play-
caller makes the yardage will be
in the lineup  most of the time.
Puil's sore shoulder, which was hurt
again   last   Saturday   in   Bellingham.
is back  to normal.
Powerhouse Cece Taylor, out of
action for weeks with his hand in a
cast, will be in the lineup against
Wildcats tomorrow. Cece was in strip
last week with the 'Birds, but thai
was just to add a little more strength
on the bench.
Once again, UBC's single wingback
faces the potent T formation. Wildcats use the same type of T that
University of Washington features, and
it  is  built  for  power.
First and second strings of CWEC
are just as good as each other, and
they also change from offense to defense in platoon  fashion.
So UBC has their work cut out
for them, and the result of their
labours should be worth watching.

how little it costs
to buy protection
at YOUR age?
Everybody knows that life
insurance rates are affected by
the age of the person to be
insured ... the earlier you insure
the lower the premiums. But have
you found out just how small
the annual premium would be
in your own case?
There is another very important
reason why it is in your own
interests to take out insurance
while young. Good health is
essential before you can be insured
... and you may become
uninsurable in later years.
The proper type of policy for you
can best be determined in
consultation with an insurance
expert. Why not call the
Mutual Life of Canada representative? He has been trained in
adapting life insurance to each
person's particular needs. Ask him
to explain the many advantages of
Mutual low cost life insurance.
