GRASSHOPPERS GULPED
FOR A PRICE IN EAST
EVANSTON,   Illinois—(CUP)—When   post-war   college
men failed to revive the cultural pursuit of swallowing
goldfish, the girls came up with a trick of their own,
They eat grasshoppers but, being feminine and practical, they do it for a price.
Latest entry in the grasshopper gulping derby is Hazel
Ford, Northwestern University journalism student, Her
price was $7*
•The girl who started the whole thing was a Georgia
belle who thought the job worth only $2.

Council Gives In;  UBC
Gets Modern Signboard
Designs Rejected Previously By
Council Get OK At Monday Meet
UBC is to get its modernistic, controversial signboard after
all.
The general principle of the board has been approved
by student council and referred lo Literary and Scientific
Executive president Roger Pederson to submit final plans and
estimates to Council arief administration.
~* Previously Council rejected designs
.submitted by architecture students.
They termed their designs clashing
ar.cl likened  them to an iceboat.

Red Dean Speaks
Monday At Noon
Dr.   Hewlett   Johnston,   the
Red Dean, will speak at UBC
Monday at 12:30 p.m. in the
Auditorium. Dean will arrive
in Vancouver Sunday and will
speak in downtown Vancouver.
He will leave campus immediately after meeting so as
to catch a plane for the U.S.
"Medico-Legal Jurisprudence" will
be the subject of an address at 12:30
p.m. today in Applied Science 100 by
N. Musallen to pre-med students. All
pre-meds are asked to attend the lecture. Seating accomodation is limited
to 300.
Christian Science, Organization will
meet in Arts 103 at 12:30 p.m. today.
Meeting will include testimonies for
Christian Science healing.
Society of Microbiologists will be
addressed by F. Fulton of B.C. Research Council, Tuesday. December
7, at 8:00 p.m. in the committee room
in Brock Hall. Topic will be "Viruses"
CLASH
AMS treasurer Paul Plant said de-
sii'iia should I)!' in collegiate gothic
v, a.s not to clash with oilier build-
ii'g> on the campus.
Signboard will be placed on the
Mall in such a position that a maximum of students will be able to see
it. It will not conflict with the view
of the North Shore.
COUNCIL SUPERVISION
Signboard will be under the direct
supervision  of student council.
Idea for the board came from LSE
head,   Roger   Pederson,  who  claimed
this need for more advertising than
'lit Daily Ubyssey could give. "It is
unsound," he said, "to base publicity
and the prospect of success upon one
medium alone."
Student architects responsible for
the design anrl model are Peter Cotton
and Bill Tassie, both in second year
architecture. Both are veterans.
DEFINITE
Tassie is definite about' thc design,
Said he, "We feel the design is perfectly logical." Cotton was hopeful
trial the acceptance of the design
marks the beginning of a realistic
approach   to  building on  the campus.
Professor F. Lasserre, head of the
department of architecture, said "There
have been many signs constructed on
the campus .in the collegiate Gothic
style and nobody ever looks at them
so I hope that this new sign will be
,,.('   more   value."

Mamooks
To Counci
Council To Reconsider Permanent
Reinstotement In January, 1949
Mamooks will have to report to student council every week.
Move came after council had reinstated the club last week
after being banned for not giving the service expected.
Club was reinstated because Coun-S>— — 1-
cil felt tho best interests of the campus could be served by allowing it to
continue until reorganization could
be completed at the end of January.
At a reorganization meeting Monday night motion reconstituting the
club was passed. Full text is as follows: "That the Mamooks Club be
reconstituted on a temporary basis,
until January 31, 1949, at which time
Council will consider the possibility
of nstalling the club on a permanent
basis; and that further the minutes
of the temporary organization be submitted weekly to Student Council
through the president of the LSE. . ."
Other suggestions were considered
and approved.
Among  them  were  resolutions calling   for   a    membership   drive   alter
Christmas and  a  club  parly  to   we
come   prospective   members.
Council also passed motion lo have
classes in sign writing renewed a.s
soon as posiblc and to have steps
taken to exclude non-members from
club  privileges.
Action to ban the club was taken
after several campus groups complained that the service expected had
not been given. Birthe Johnstone,
president of Mamooks, said that many
clubs desiring poster had not picked
thorn up.
NFCUS Paris De!epfe To Present

"National Federation of Canadian University Students
should affiliate wilh international Union of Students despite
its insistence on a communist partisan interpretation of its
constitution which violates democratic principles," said Grant

Livingstone stated that all three

He will present these rt'sohnions to

Livingstone dealt at some lemth

ihe attempt to affiliate wilh IUS.
This resulted finally in nn offer of
membership from IUS which NFCUS

The Red Dean
Let's Get This Straight
Five hundred music lovers were deprived
ol a chance to hear a piano recital in Brock
Hall yesterday because no one could make
up his mind who owned the piano.
If this were an isolated incident it would
require no mention in these columns, but unfortunately clashes of authority in this student building have become the rule rather
than thc exception.
The piano, as a matter of fact, belonged to
the department and head janitor Tom Grantham was quite right in refusing to have it
dragged into the lounge for a recital without
permission of professor Harry Adaskin, head
of the department. The whole silly dispute
could have been avoided if clubs would only
lake the time to investigate what rights they
have in the Brock instead or assuming ownership of every piece of equipment in thc
building.
Despite the fact that students built and
paid for the building, the administration has
undertaken its care and maintainence employing a janilorial stair and paying for the
light and heat.
The Alma Mater Society has, on thc other
hand, permitted the  administration  to  hold
In This Corner....
The plight of movie humor looked even
worse this week a.s your reviewer went !o
the unpleasant task of seeing another Abbott
avid Costello picture, thi.s time complicated
by Dracula. Frankenstein and the wolfman.
"Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein," for
all its corn and hackneyed jokes is still an
unoffending film which may provide, for
those who like these two nincompoops, and
evening of tension and  light  entertainment.
As two baggage handlers who have to
deliver a pair of crates to a house of horrors
they both become embroiled with Dracula
and Frankenstein who are lying dormant in
the crates. The inevitable beautiful female
doctor is waiting for Dracula to arrive with
Frankenstein so she can revive the monster,
She plays up to Costello with the intention
of using his brain in Frankenstein's body.
All the old tricks of modern movie humor
are used. The double takes, the half-humor,
half-terror of the unsuspecting victim as he
nonchanlantly walks into the arms of the
murderer, and a hundred others.
It's about time Hollywood started to rejuvenate its humor and give the public
something lo laugh at. Good slapstick i.s
pleasant lo watch but there are few good
purveyor,-, of il extant today. The Marx
Broh.ers come about the closest to being better
than average1, but if another Charlie Chaplin
or Harold Lloyd came along today, his fortune  would  be made.
'1 here i> a weekly radio program thai can
be beard in Vancouver entitled, "Candid
Microphone," directed by a minor genius,
Alfred Funl. IT is trick is to plant microphones
in various spots and then corner some poor
individual and go lo work on him. It's amazing what  the human patience can lake at the
some classes in the upstairs rooms and store
some musical instruments there. All the pianos in this building, except the battered old
relic in the main lounge, belong to the administration and no student or club is permitted
to use them vvihout first obtaining written
permission from the department.
The use of club rooms in the evening has
created more friction than necessary between clubs and Mr. Lee's office. It's very
simple. Students may use the rooms anytime
the wish if permission is first obtained from
Chick Turner, co-ordinator of activities.
Insurance is another case in point. If there
ever was a fire in this building, collecting
on the dozens of policies would be a nightmare. Part of the building and equipment
is insured by the AMS and part by the administration. There is not even a complete
inventory of what students own because
ciubs have been lax in estimating their capital
assets for treasurer Paul Plant.
It's time that the boundaries of students
authority in Brock Hall were defined before
law students are tossed out of their classrooms because of a booking slip.

hands of so skillful a practioner of the old
art of goading people on as Funt is.
On the same program with Abbott and
Costello was the movie version of the program which gives one the opportunity to see
peoples actual facial reactions to the goading.
Il adds up to some of the brightest humor
seen on the screen ever. The striking thing
about, the people that Funt interviews is their
infinite patience. A less patient person would
sock him in the teeth.
The beauty of the show is that the people
are uninhibited by any stage fright that
might tend to make them sound unnatural.
Funniest sequence is Funt goading an office
worker who has bought a requisition slip to
an airline office. Funt claims the slip is made
out wrongly and their conversation goes on
for about 15 minutes, Finally Funt tells her
she has been photographed for his show. Her
reaction is a gem of facial expression. Funt's
other sequences are equally funny and this
little short is well worth the price of admission. >     %M    |
Lawrence Olivier's first Shakespearean
production, "Henry V" will return to Vancouver next week to run at popular prices.
This picture wa.s, in the sense of action, even
more thrilling than "Hamlet," It is one of the
roost   rewarding   pictures   of  modern  times,
Magnificent in drama is Henry's excursion
among his soldiers before the battle of Agin-
court. More magnificent is the charge of the
French knights when they open the battle and
their repulsion al the hands of the English
crossbowmen.
Anyone who missed the show before
should not hesitate to see it now and those
who .saw it before should see it again for it
stands as one of the motion picture triumphs
of all time.

'Birds Trounce Nanaimo Clippers
In Bitterly Fought Contest

UBC's puck chasing Thunderbirds took over top spot in
the Senior B hockey loop on Wednesday night by trouncing their
bitter rivals, Nanaimo Clippers, 5-3 before 2000 screaming

SECOND HALF
On December 11, Imporal Cup
competition between V and D teams
geti". unclei; way. Second half of the
schedule will be played during thc
spring term, although there is a possibility that the Mainland Cup tie ma1,
go early in January,
Varsity has had a fairly successful
season so far, although they wete
held down in the standings when bad
breaks turned a couple of potential
wins into ties or defeats. At present
the campus eleven is deadlocked
with Raniers and Collingwood, three
games behind  undefeated Norquay.
SCORE FREELY
The students have had their best
success with the bottom teams. They
scored 13 goals in whipping South
Hill twice, and also took two games
from North Burnaby. They managed
only a tie in two starts with Collingwood, and dropped a pair to Norquay.
Jack Cowan, presumably headed for
Scotland and a pro contract, is still
awaiting transportation, and will be
on hand to strengthen Varsity against
the Raniers en Sunday. The only other
meeting between these rwo clubs re-
ulted in a 2-2 saw-off.
Jack Cowan leads student snipers
with 5, Don Gleig, Stu Todd arc! Don
Renton have four, Bud Dobson has 3,
Bobby Moulds and Ken Campbell 2
each, while Dave Thompson, Howie
Oborne and Gord Shepherd have a
singleton to their credit.
RUGBY NOTICE
All Second Division games scheduled for this weekend cancelled. They
will be played on the following Saturday, December 11.
AIRTIGHT DEFENSE of the
UBC Thunderbirds net minder,
Don Adams, played a big part
in the 5-3 victory of the student icemen over their bitter
rivals,  the Nanaimo  Clippers,  sc°red in tour consecutive games
Wednesday night in the Forum.
Although this is his first year
with   the   'Birds,   Adams   has
since they not only moved into the
number one position but also at the
same time downed the hated Islanders
who have been making Varsity's ice
life miserable.
The Nanaimo squad lived up to its
P'-c-game reputation as a rough
machine. They received seven pen-
allies for their efforts, In the process three 'Birds were injured, one
s-criously. High flying Bob Koch injured his back after being hooked from
behind. Bob had to leave the contest
in  thc second  canto.
I HARD FOUGHT
The game itself was thrilling from
start i'o finish with the locals havinjj
a decided advantage in the play. The
flirt period ended 1-1, with the students missing several opportunities to
'.ore. Verity's initial tally was garnet cd by Ken Hodget on a power play.
The second period saw the cammis
'quad jump into a 3-2 lead. Sand-
w 'ch session goals were copped by
I ustling Haas Young, who is hitting
top form, and Jim Rowledge. who
'cored on a sizzler which gave Mike
Rivers no chance to save.
CINCH CONTEST
The final period saw the 'Birds
srere twice to sew up the contest.
Gunnar Bailey and Lloyd Torfasson
were the goal getters. Lloyd has now
played  against Nanaimo.
This contest looms as a natural
as the "Cal" squad is 'one up on tho
locals. This game is "exhibition" in
name only as nothing but victory will
satisfy local ego.
Cut-rate student tickets go on sale
at the office of the Graduate Manager next Monday, After next week
there is only one price.
BRAVES,  CHIEFS TANGLE
IN GYM AT NOON TODAY
Senior A hoop rivalry between the two campus entries
breaks out anew today when the Braves and Chiefs tangle in
the Gym at 12:30. A special student admission price of ten cents
will be charged for the affair.
Last time these two squads met the underdog graves came
up with a surprise 48-45 upset over the favored Chiefs. Since
then, however, the Chiefs have improved considerably and
will be favored to even the count today.
Ole Bakken's Braves started out with a bang in their
first few outings, but have been faltering recently while the
Chiefs seem to be picking up after getting away to a slow start.

Weather Uncooperative
Miller Cup Playoff May
Be fate Of Ruggermen
By DOUG MURRAY-ALLAN
The weather man played a mean
trick last week, when snow prevented the Varsity Rugger squad from
playing their most deciding tilt of
the season.
The game scheduled against
North Shore All-Blacks was cancelled, thus keeping the students
from getting a chance iat the lead
in the second half of .the Miller
Cup race.
This Saturday Varsity will meet
Rowing Club, and North Shore con-
lends with Meralomas. Even if
Varsity does win they will bc forced
lo play off the finals with the All
Blacks.
KEPLAYD
Officials have nol as yet stated
whether or not last week's games
will be played at a later date.
Even if the situation does come
around to a play-off, the students
have nothing to fear. Thc first
stringers have been further strengthened by the return of two of last
years mainstays, Eric Cardinal and
Gerard Kirby. and with ihe possible
return of Dougie Reid, Bud Spiers
and Don Nesbit, there seems little
doubt   of   the   team  winning.
VASTLY IMPROVED
The UBC squad will be out for
their first win this Saturday. They
have been vastly improved with
the addition of such players as
Dave Story, Hillary Wotherspoon,
and Jack Armour.
Although they are meeting the
highly rated South Burnaby agenda
the students have a 50-50 chance
cf winning or tying their final tilt.
Both games are scheduled for
Saiurday in the Stadium, Varsity
and UBC at 1:45 and 2:45 respectively.

the Clover Leafs and the UBC
Thunderbirds.
Tickets to this basketball jamboree

a first rate seat in the section reserved for students.
PROMISING STYLE
And the style of basketball on view
for all hoop fans sounds really promising. The Huskies were in the semifinals in last year's national intercollegiate basketball tournament after
sweeping by the University of California Bears for the Coast Conference title. J
Eight lettermen from last year's
team will be active on the Huskies
this   year.   Most'  prominent   of   these

is forward Sammy White, who is
the best bet on the Huskies for All-
American choice this year.
White is probably one of the fastest men on the Huskie aggregation
and this fact, combined with his
complete mastery of the unorthodox
style of  shooting  make  him  an  im
portant  factor  in  the  success of  the
Washington team this year.
Since there aro to be two important games played, the opener will
stnt exactly on time so fans are
asked to kindly be in their seats

p.m.
