Director Ensures Production Will
Surpass Lost Seasons' 'Iolanthe'
When Fielding wrote 'Tom Jones' it tickled the funny-
bones of Lords, Lord Mayors, Millwrights, Coopers, and sur-.
prisingly enough, students.
Now the humor has been extracted^ ——— "—
for modern audiences by the English
composer, Sir Edward German. The
result: an entertaining and highly
amusing operetta, 'Tom Jones.' Mussoc will present it, as their major
production,   this   ctoming   February.
But casting is going on now. Anyone who would like to try their
voice in any of the forty-five roles,
will be welcomed by Mussoc. Applications will be received and interviews taken in Mussoc's studios, beside the stage door of the auditorium.
'Tom Jones' is one of the most
ambitious productions undertaken by
Mussoc. It was first presented in
London just before the first world
war, making it mere contemporary
than Gilbert and Sullivan. February
production will be the west-coast
premier   of   the  comic-operetta.
E. V. Young, brilliant Vancouver
director, will ensure that the production has the same show-stopping
stage business as last year's highly
successful Mussoc production, "Iolanthe." •■   J];!iJ:
Music will again be under the direction of C.  Haydn  Williams.
Mussoc's president, Ken Bogas, will
announce the tentative casting at
'Old and New Members' banquet and
dance to be held at Brock Hall next
Tuesday evening. Any paid up members will be given free tickets if
they visit club rooms, Aud. 207,

"Mid-day Mixing Bowl's" listeners
sat in Brock Lounge where the program reached them by loud speaker
and  paid  bored,  partial attention.
One student even suggested that
Radio Society might pep up the broadcast with a few jokes.
The noon-hour program has improved much over last year. Social
highlights, sports and complete coverage 6f campus news directed by
The Ubyssey were sprinkled among
popular records. There is even a
localized weather report.

International Student Service Committee has resigned and
will reform on a sound membership basis.
Joe Lotzkar, president, made it plain the Committee had
not walked  out in protest over anything but merely  to reorganize.
Accordingly,   referendum   to   raised :	
student fees from S15 to SIG will be
pestponed until the first week in
November. Extra $1 would allow ISS
to bring Displaced European persons

Guna Valters are already at UBC on
ISS  scholarships.
Members of the Committee who
have resigned are: Joe Lotzkar, president, Drew McTaggart, Mary Leiterman, Felicity Pope.

on until new committee forms will
consist of Peter deVooght, chairman.
Don Truesdale, Mary Leiterman and
Felicity   Pope.
Under the new system, delegates
from the United Nations Club and
the International Relations Club will
sit on the ISS Committee.
The new Committee will be patterned after the International Council,
an International ISS group.
"We have never been properly organized en a sound membership basis,"
Joe Lotzkar, said yesterday.
Tlie Committee also feels that they
are not yet ready to meet the publicity issue on the referendum and
have asked for its postponement until

If students okay a $1 rise in fees,
ISS will continue to bring foreign
students  to  the  campus.

Let's Swallow And Smile
We might ns well face it.
The large and bitter pill of austerity must
be swallowed.
Student governments, like other governments, can only spend what they collect from
their tax payers. In this case wc are the
tax payers. We refused an increase in fees
and we must take what we get.
Undoubtedly every organization on the
campus conceives of treasurer Ewing as a
great, lecherous, penny-pinching monster.
They all think they deserved more and that
everyone else deserved less. To them, the
campus revolves about their group.
But if we can detach ourselves from
our petty interests long enough to take a
broad view ot tho situation we must confess
that the little man with the worried look
has done a great job.
No essential organization will have to
go without funds. They may have lo restrict
their activities but will be able to carry on
and—if they are careful—will be able .to
give students as good service as ever before.
The gilt edge is gone, but the university
continues to be a good place to be. A place
where wc can still have fun and, if we can
find time, become educated.
The Ubyssey extends its hearty congratulations to treasurer Ewing. (It doesn't really
like treasurers anyway but, if we must have
a treasurer, we think Ewing can't be beaten.)

—News Item.
You may not realize it yet, but that
happens to be the best piece of news science
has offered us since thc innovation ot the
plunging neckline.
Of course the most obvious advantage
which will result from this brilliant bit oi
scientific research will be that all of us
will be able to drink flurselves into our
graves in thc space of a few short days, where
it used to take a lifetime.
The announcement unfolds countless possibilities in an unlimited number ot useless
fields of endeavour.
Take, for example, lhe field of Illegal

this science frequently is cramped by convention and the arrival of two or three night

while the waitress slands around draining
his cash. This is known as Having A Floluva

and is very popular.
But with a twist of the sliderule, science
is'aboul. to change the whole picture. We can

An insidious and potent force has
hit the campus this week. It struck
forcibly and has in its wake a series
of sniffles and sneezes.
From firsthand knowledge plus the
inability to make intelligible conversation, it's noted this new strain
of the virus Common Cold is far from
common. It is hoped the Bac Dept
will look into the affair thoroughly
and suggest some way of combating
this menace.
Not only is the Caf a den of crawling gerr .s, but the Library is equally
impossible with its wheezing inhabitants. How can anyone be eager when
their next-door neighbor is alternately
leaping for a piece of Kleenex and
racing off periodically for an aspirin
to, go with his coffee?
Sniffles aside, let's all throw a
bouquet in the direction of lovely
freshette Lis Tupper. Voted the 'girl
we'd most like to fraternize with' by
the members of Lambda Chi fraternity, Liz is an outstanding example
of all the pretty freshettes this year.
The Kappa's and Gamma Phi's
Showboat cabaret promises to be one
of THE parties of the season. Judging
from all that's been heard, the floor
show will be really sensational and
the raffle prizes are quite something.
Tickets are available from any Kappa
or Gamma Phi you happen to see
Fashion shows and rushing are reportedly the top topics among the
Caf and campus addicts. WUS's fashion show will feature the latest and
the co-eds are expected to blossom
out in all sorts of peculiar fads after
the showing. (When is someone going
to start another exciting custom—
the ears are done so what next?) Rushing seems to explain itself. By this
time next weak we'll be able to give
all the results in the race for pledges.
Happy confinement to all the virulent sufferers and best wishes to thc
Kleenex Co.  and  its stockholders.

Swim Team"
Aims Higher
This Season
Oregon, Idaho
Possible Foes
For Varsity
UpC's highly successful
swimming team is aiming for
even higher championships and
meets to conquer this year.
Meets with Varsity swim teams
from bigger colleges south of the
border were planned at an organizational meeting  held  yesterday.
UBC plans i'o go big time with
full scale matches with Oregon State,
Idaho, as well as squads from members schools in the Evergreen Conference.
Western Washington' will definitely
be one of UBC's foes after Christmas
as will be Eastern Washington College of Education, both teams from
Evergreen loop.
University of Washington Frosh may
participate with UBC's Varsity team
as they did last season. This was
one of the features of the season
last year, and may well prove to be
the same again this  term.
Talent' has been making its way
into the lower sanctums of the
Varsity  swimming   team   already.
Diving should be well taken care
ot ;in coming matches with both
Jim Hawthorne, outstanding diver for
the Varsity squad for the last two
years, and newcomer Don Thorn,
exceptional aquatic artist who ranked
in the top three in the Dominion
Championships as well as in the
Empire Games trials.
Team is rounded out with most of
the regulars again back as well as
some talented newcomers who will
add something to the squad.
Record-breaker Jack Creedon has
gone from the school but George
Knight, also a record smasher last
year is back in the fold and looks
promising again.
No pool training will be given the
team members until November, but
stiff workouts will be their worry.
tffttlt*dfh«n. At least one month's
exercising before pool workouts will
put them in championship  state.
In   the   women's   division,   a   new
addition in the breast stroke department will bolster their team for future competition.
Mevican Olympic breast stroke
artist Mrs. Stoddard will definitely
be   a   main   feature   on   the  squad.
Plans in the effing are to have
an inter conference swim meet, to
take place possibly at Bellingham
-between schools of the Northern
Division of Pacific Conference and
members of the Evergreen Conference.
But  nothing  is  definite  so  far.

Training Sessions
For October Debut
The Thunderbird hockey
squad will begin physical training sessions on Monday in
preparation foi* the forthcoming hockey season.
The conditioning programme will
be held on Monday, Wednesday and
Friday at the Stadium at 12:30. The
intention is to have the players in
top shape for October 13, the first
practice of the season.
Practices will be held at the Forum
until the new arena in Kerrisdale
is completed, All players on the
campus are urged to attend these
All those players who have yet Vo
attend a meeting are asked to obtain
a player form at the Gym office
from the secretary. Meetings are held
every Thursday noon in Arts 106.
Several outstanding newcomers attended the recent organizational meeting of the squad. There are several
others known to be on the campus
who are now being tracked down.
Among the new arrivals is Bob Mc-
Farlane from Regina, Bob played
junior hockey with the Regina entry
in the Western Canada junior league
nnd is hailed as one of the outstanding
defensemen of  that tough league.
John Duchene is an Ontario addition to tlie prospective Bird squad.
He is a nre-law student with a reputation for speed and savvy who should
be in the thick of the battle for a
position on the forward line.
Jack Barabo is a newcomer from
Montreal where he played with the
Junior provincial champions. Hc is a
defense prospect who will be heard
B. C. is represented among the
newcomers by Don McQuarrie who
hails from Kimbcrloy whore he performed with that city's junior champions.
The remainder of the newcomers
will be introduced when they become
betetr known to yours truly.
will attempt to prove that their
club is as strong if not stronger than
it  was  last season.
Problems confronting the team this
year are not many but the lack of
numbers doesn't lessen the importance of them.
With Jack Cowan currently rendering his services to one of the Old
Country teams, Varsity is without
a definite replacement for the talented fullback.
If the team continues to lack a
gcod fullback, veteran soccerman Dave
Thompson may fill the vacancy.
Other duties to which Thompson
may turn is coaoh of one of the
university teams, where he can guide
talent to better playing instead of
taking an active part on the team
Goalkeeper is still needed for the
Varsity eleven, but John Miller, UBC
tender from last season will probably
take over the chores for the first
game, if not for the season,
Last minute ironing out of these
and other problems took place at a
meeting late yesterday between players  and   managers.
Considering that eleven of last
year's Varsity players are back with
the club, they should make a fair
showing against the South Hill aggregation Saturday.
Bob Moulds, one of the most outstanding players of the 48-49 season,
will be again leading the attack, ably
assisted by most of the old line including wingman Ken Campbell, top
flight rookie last year.
Apart from the playing team itself,
one manager is needed to fill the
roster of the coaching-managing staff.
UBC, university's second soccer
team, is again back in the V and D
League, after a year's play in the
minors, and should make a good
'howing in the Second Division.
Six teams comprise the First Division loop, while Second Div. is made
up of seven teams this year.

Burke WorksJBirds Hard
During Two Weeks Layoff
Orville Burke has been driving the 'Birds hard for the
past week and t&king every advantage of the week's lay off
in an attempt to correct the faults of last week's game.
Turnouts have  only been fair this.*'  	
week as a great many of the newcomers lost interest when they didn't
see any game  time last wqek.
This would seem to be a very poor
attitude, when one takes into consideration the fact that in most colleges
men have to turn out to practises
for a full year before they can even
strip foi; a game.
Lack of manpower in the guard and
tackle  slots   is   still   the   Bird's   bugbear;   some   of   these   positions   aren't
even  two deep.
The   backfield  side   however   has   a
bright   outlook   with   nearly   twenty
backs turning out  regularly,
Leo Lund, formerly of North Vancouver High has turned out nnd will
probably be working the quarterback
slot with McArlhur and Sadler.
Fred French is out to practises agai.i
after   a   short   lay   off   and   and   Ceo
Taylor might, see action against' Eastern Oregon if he can get a ''playing
cast"  for  his  broken  thumb.
No   major   injuries   have   occurred
this   week   but  some   of   the   regulars
such    as    Murphy,    who    has   a    bad
knee,  are   taking  things  a   little  easy
so   that   thoy   can   pour   i'he   coal   to
it  next  week's  training'.
Burke    has    introduced    some    nev.
plays   and   is   trymg   to   improve   tin
passing.  The Birds scorn   10  have  ii.u!

' at Digney  Speedway last week.
Relatively the same group of contestants are taking part in this meet

Only event that Millman may not

is the route race around Little
Short sprints which Millman rode

probably all fall to the talented
