 Arts Combines
Executive Duty
•   COMBINED Arts executives for third and fourth years
will be set up during a special election meeting Friday
vol. xxvir
No. 18
The  executive  will  be  formed
from both years.
The combined executive is., seen
by Council as a double solution
to the Arts administration problem and the low registration in
third and fourth year Arts.
...President Les Raphael will take
charge of the election meeting,
which will take place In Arts 100.
The elections have been scheduled as a result of complaints made
to Raphael by members of third
year Arts to the effect that in the
past Arts elections have had virtually no duties to fulfil and after
elections were relegated merely to
"sitting on their hands."
Raphael has promised  to  find
work for the  Artsmen.    A task
will be participation in arrangements for the Autumn Formal,
"It is a fine thing to see Arts-
men cooperating among themselves," stated Dick Bibbs, president of the Alma Mater Society.
A similar working arrangement
of combined executives in the
Sciencemen's Undergraduate Society haa been cited aa a good
working pattern for the Artsmen's
Undergraduate Society.

Pacific, November 2-(BUP)-
Despite fierce Japanese resistance
on Leyte Island in the Philippines,
American troops today smashed
two miles up the Leyte Valley.
These forces are now within six
miles of Carigara, where the Japanese are attempting to hold open
an escape route to Ormoc.
General Douglas MacArthur reported that the Japanese apparently have continued to reinforce
their Ormoc garrison under cover
of darkness.

Premier Josef Stalin made the
success known in an order of the
day which said that infantry troops
supported by warships of the Red
Navy had swept the last of tho
German invaders from the region.
In the campaign into East Prussia, Russian forces were reported
today to be massing for a gigantic
assault on the Nazi fortress of In-
^terburg, which lies 40 miles inside
the East Prussian border.
In Hungary the battle for the
capital city of Budapest has reached a crucial stage. Red Army
forces are converging on the city
from south, east and northeast. Its
capitulation is expected within a
few days.
Western European Front
• ALLIED Supreme Headquarters, Paris, November 2—(BUP)
—British troops today swarmed
over Walcheren island, the key to

Greene Plans
'No Atheists During Robot
Raids on England': Green
• IF MANY so-called Christians
wish to become true Christians
they must get off the fence, according to Rev. Bryan Green who
addressed a student meeting Wednesday.
Rev. Green's speech was presented under the auspices of the
Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship. He is chaplain to the headquarters of the Anti-Aircraft Defenses   of   London,   England.
"In England," says Rev. Green,
"there are many who called themselves atheists. But I have yet to
see a person who has been an atheist under a flying bomb attack.
"Too many of us have this attitude in our relations towards
God. We like to use Him only
when we have no other alternative."
We must get off the fence—we
must be either true Christians ond
accept God or become agnostic,
was his opinion.
He suggested we use Christ as
a standard for our own personal
life, as He was both human and

Filipino Woman
Leads Guerillas
• ONCE SHE was a school teacher who taught quietly on the
peaceful island of Leyte in the
Philippines. But war came to her
people and this middle-aged Filipino woman turned from her books
and her school house to guns and
warfare in the woods.
This feminine guerilla leader is
known to her fighters as Captain
Jane Brown. But her real name is
Nieves Fernandez. You would
never know to look at her that she
had the courage and will to command over 100 Philippine male
guerillas. She i.s a plain-looking
woman dressed in a simple black
dresy, but her eyes are cold, her
look is forceful.
For years Captain Fernandez and
her band harassed the Japs with
only three American rifles and
home-made guns crudely fashioned
from pipes. The undaunted guerillas also made their own grenades.
And with these home-made weapon;" they claim to have killed 200
Japanese during their nightly foray;- and ambushes.

For the Record
Tkt -ffdfridW  Forestry Faculty Seen as
Check to B.C Deforestation
Anyone who mentions student "apathy"
around these offices is likely to meet with
a cool reception. Either that or he- is immediately surrounded by everybody and
several lengthy papers are read on the subject. Because we know all about it.
Once every year we beat our heads
against this stone wall, write volumes of
editorials and finally retire to our little
corner—completely defeated. You just can't
win with it against you.
We don't know how the situation is at
other universities, but we do know that at
UBC the one drag on student enterprise
is that characteristic attitude which is best
expressed with the old favorite "They just
don't give a damn".
Take for example the campaign which
ends today for Totem pictures. Only 60
percent of the student body has taken the
trouble to come to the Brock and have their
pictures taken.
The Publications Board, Student Council and various other student organizations
did their best to get students to have their
pictures taken. We wanted a picture of
every student in this year's Totem. But 40
percent are not interested, and so another
student enterprise is 40 percent short of
We use this example because it is one
we know best, but there are hundreds of
others which occur every day of the week.
UBC students of today lack that quality
which is necessary for a successful student
year—a year which they could look back
on with pleasure in the future.
It cannot be claimed that pressure of
studies prevents students from entering completely into student affairs. One of the most
active of the types of students here is the
scienceman, who is probably saddled with
more work than any other student.
Then why is it that a good many people
on this campus want things done, but never
want to help even in a small way?
Each student who reads the above para
graph can answer it for himself.
Here we have the picture of that privileged character of World War II; gloriously
proclaimed as the future leader of civilization: We give you, The UBC Student. You
can have him.
We are ashamed of over half of the
people walking about this campus today.
We wonder what they will be like when
they emerge to take over their leadership
role. We wonder whx they are wasting our
time, cluttering up our records, messing up
our affairs in their attempt to be more than
they are,
We wonder if it is true after all that
UBC students these days are only "draft
dodgers", a claim we have stoutly denied
since the war began. They do not seem to
be interested in anything to do with education or the word "student". Can we seriously
assert that we are not attempting to escape
the war?
One student leader on this campus
maintains that the UBC student body is
"dead". Decidedly so, we say, and it died
long ago, leaving only a dead shell to mock
a reputation in which everyone here should
take pride.
This year our registration has reached
2900, the highest in our history. We have
the raw material for successful student
Every student should recognize that this
state of affairs exists. Why cannot we resolve right now to do all we can to make
1944-45 and the years to follow lively and
successful? It is for ourselves that we would
work. It would be advantageous to nobody
else.  It's not much to ask.
We can make those who call us "the
gut-less wonders of the war" eat those unsavory words. Unless something is done by
this student body to make it worthy of the
name it carries, this newspaper goes on
record as accepting that epithet as characteristic of both itself and the students of
this university.
•       the  last WOrd • • • by Mardee Dundas
• OH TO BE very young
again! Hallowe'en with
its coterie of witches, hobgoblins, black cats,, and children having a wonderful time
being children, has always
provided plenty of nostalgic
and tear-drenched sighs for
people who wish they could
do more than just look back
into their youthful past.
Even university students who are fledglings, comparatively speaking, feel old, blase,
and experience-hardened at traditional
times like Hallowe'en and Christmas when
they suddenly discover that there are others
extracting more fun out of life than they
are themselves.
Imagination, simplicity, and a trust in
human nature are the attributes which most
adults lack.
Just imagine being able to wake up on
Christmas morning again with a firm belief
in the travelling ability of six reindeer and
the toy-production power pf several little
gnomes in a North Pole toy shop—instead of
having the customary "Benefits Received"
adding machine attitude.
And wouldn't it be refreshing to be able
to spend an evening of Hallowe'en fun defying witches and black cats, enjoying yourself
thoroughly—without benefit of liquor ration,
cigarettes, money, or members of the op*
posite sex. It can and is done, believe it
or not.
Then think of the joys of reading Robinson Crusoe, Black Beauty, and the Wizard
of Oz again for the first time.
And will you ever again recapture that
half-frightened, half-exalted "bold but rather
baffled" crusader feeling you had on the
first day of school.
The only thing puzzling us about the
Homecoming game is the reason why all
the Mamooks were sitting up in the top
right corner of the stadium.
What first class can ever give you the
thrill and feeling of accomplishment that
you got in former days when you found the
nickel in a birthday cake, got the most gold
stars in grade one, were chosen captain of
a team, wore your first pair of long trousers,
or bought your first present with money
you saved up yourself?
And then no full-length movie feature
from Hollywood can ever compare with the
blissful joys irradiated from sledding down
a deliciously sloping hill, and erecting the
biggest snowman in the block.
The great question is: When do human
beings automatically stop getting fun out of
Perhaps it all begins when an unsympathetic older child sneers, "There's no
Santa Claus".
But it really goes back to the time when
people automatically stop getting fun out of
life and begin striving to achieve it.
It is too bad that children can't emerge
into adulthood with no radical change of
outlook, no impairment of imaginative
powers, or change of values.
But imagination and pure enjoyment of
plain living are inconsistent with Twentieth
Century attitudes. He who deals best with
realities is the most successful. Marvellously
lucky is the individual who actually retained
his imagination.
If you can vision castles in mountains,
houses in trees, pots of gold at the end of
rainbows, you don't have to worry about the
material matters or whether or not you are
getting any fun out of life. Your problems
are settled.
Ah, me! I think I shall creep into a
corner and weep for departed youth—and
Seems the Varsity Dance Orchestra
couldn't find a place to practise so they
didn't play. At least, that's what they told

Homesick GT
Find Chinese
Foster" Home
• There is a stone covered courtyard in Kunming, China,
which has seen the passage of
many American soldiers, from
Gl's to generals. It is the courtyard of Mrs. Chiang, the wife of
one of China's best-known college professors. She is the woman
who started a volunteer service
for American soldiers.
Mrs. Chiang and her group of
Chinese ladies help out the sunburned, homesick Gl's. They
plan boat rides, shopping tours,
parties and answer all sorts of
questions in their polished college
The power behind this friendly
work is Mrs. Chiang. She is a
tiny woman who dresses very
simply in a plain Chinese gown
and a cardigan sweater. When you
go to visit her, she apologizes for
her English, which is halting, and
asks you to sit on one of the
built-in benches which line two
walls of the bare room.
Mrs. Chiang smiles and explains, "ou/ war-time furniture.
I* was made from packing cases."
The rest of the room also shows
the ravages of war. The windows
are covered yvith ornate woodwork, But there are no glass
panes, only thin white paper. You
see, the window panes were
bombed out and glass is too expensive to replace.
But these things do not bother
Mrs. Chiang. She is too busy.
She loves to talk about the work
she and other Chinese women are
doing for the American soldiers.
She says, "the boys like to visit
in Chinese homes, especially
where there are children. We always bring our children out for
So every Sunday afternoon, a
group of American boys ride into
town in a jeep or truck for an
afternoon of Chinese home life.

Forestry, still a young profession, in reality ranks with
the older, long-established
professions of engineering,
medicine and law but because it is still a young profession, it is a growing one.
Our neighbours, the Americans,
are much farther ahead of us in
training men for this new professional field. The College of Forestry was established at the University of Washington in 1907 with
only two instructors and ten major students.
Since then it has grown to become an institution with eight instructors teaching full time, several part time assistants and an
enrollment of approximately two
hundred and fifty students. However, because of the present war
this enrollment has fallen off a
great deal.
The CoUege occupies two buildings, has two school forests and
well equipped laboratories for Instruction and research.
Timber and forest products are
of vital importance to British Columbia. Thousands of men are employed In our timber industries.
In addition to lumber, and pulp
and paper,—rayon, plastics, plywood, airplane veneers, linoleum,
cellophane, celluloid, cardboard,
dyes, wool of some sorta, varnishes, binding agents, turpentine,
resins, maple sugar, and medicines such as cascara, are but a
few products included as forest
According to cruises and forest
surveys made during the past 20
years there is left in British Cot-
umbia approximately 254 billion
board feet. Of this 154 billion is
accessible. Our industries are
cutting approximately three billion feet a year, which leaves but
50 years of accessible timber left.
Allowing our present system of
logging scope for change to take
in al^ inaccessible timber there is
less than 100 years of old growth
merchantable timber left.
Trained foresters are a necessary
part of our future policy in timber
The Timber Commission, under
Chief Justice Sloan is now invest-
• igating all phases of forestry in
B.C. If it is decided that sustained yield must be instituted in our
province where will the foresters
come from to carry this policy
out? It must be realized that our
present outflow of graduates from
UBC will not be nearly enough to
carry out the required changes in
our forest policy.
A Faculty of Forestry would go
a long way to provide for future
demands for forestry graduates
because an interest would be
aroused in the student body, much
as an interest is aroused in Engineering and Agriculture. More
facilities for the complete training of foresters would be on hand,
facilities which cannot now be offered by our Department of Forestry.
Expansion of our university facilities will be a key-note in post-
. war construction. It is only fitting

• DICK BIBBS, president of the
Alma Mater Society, will be
presented with a twenty-five dollar award by Engineering Institute
of Canada in a special meeting
Friday noon in Arts 100.
The award, which is one of eleven offered each year to Canadian
university students, is given to
students of the fourth year of
Applied Science who have obtained high academic standing and
who have been active in students'
engineering organizations.
Mr. de Gaspe Beaudrien, president of the Engineering Institute
of Canada, will make the presentation.

-(CUP)-Oen. A. G. McNaughton, who addressed himself
particularly to the undergraduates in the audience, said that after the war tolerance will need to
be exercised in considering various solutions of inevitable new
problems. On those features of
the solutions which commend
themselves to all, we should take
action; on those which do not, we
should agree to disagree. "Compulsion is ruled out," he said; "we
proceed by agreement, or for a
time we rest content to not proceed at all."

• NAMES! Names! Names! It'3
full of them! And phone numbers too!
What is it? Why the Student
Directory of course!
This handy little 80-page booklet, essential to the social life of
all undergraduates will be out
soon, according to Nancy MacDonald, Editor of the Directory.
The reason for the delay in publication has been the labour
shortage at the printers.
Not only will the Directory contain tho name, address and phone
number (if every undergrad on the
campus, it will also have listed the
names and  phone  numbers of all
club, fraternity, and sorority executives.
This gem of a reference book
was first published last year. It
started as a publication to help
out-of-town students contact each
other, but it soon became the
campus' unofficial* date book.
The Directory will cost ten
cents, considered by the publishers a small price to«pay for the
valuable information it contains.
Bound in a distinctive yellow and
blue jacket, its appearance on the
campus is expected to be a decided asset to Varsity students in
their studies.
• UBC'S FINAL registration figures show total enrollment
this year of 2905, an increase of 363 students over last
year's total. Of this figure the faculty of Arts and Science
accounts for 279, the faculty of Applied Science for 43, and
the faculty of Agriculture for 23.
This year's Arts courses have enrollments as follows:
first year 758, second year 535, third year 325, fourth year
257, post-graduate students 236.
Men in Applied Science number 183 in second year, 130

Queens Institutes
Shortened Med. Course
• KINGSTON, November 1—(CUP)—A new course in
Medicine has been instituted at Queen's University. Five
intramural years and one clinical year will lead to a degree
in Medicine under the plan of training which is now in effect
in the present freshman class.
~~"~~——^——————. jn yje new cour8ei aij pre-clin-

Organic chemistry is shifted
from the second to the first year,
thus making it possible to take
bio-chemistry in the second year
and pharmacology ln the third.
The plans for all years except the
first are still tentative; but it is
hoped that under this scheme all
laboratory work will be completed
by the end of the third year, so
that more time will be available
for clinical subjects in the fourth
and fifth years.

diesel electrics, part of the road's

To assure continuance of this
outstanding wartime record, the
New Haven has a planned maintenance program which calls for
a complete overhauling of motors
after they have gone 250,000 to
300,000 miles. As of March 1 of

University Divoters
Undaunted By Rain
LUKE MOYLS, Sports Editor
• TIME WAS when I thought that sport was practically
dead on this campus, but now I am tempted to change
my altitude, especially after the good show put on by four
Varsity teams last Saturday as each of them rolled on to
victory to set some kind of a record for Homecoming Day.
Mind you, I am not easily tempted into rescinding former
opinions. But in this case, it all happened so suddenly. It
hit me square between the eyes when a scraggly bunch of
university characters shoved like Trojans to push an even
scragglier-looking bunch of heavy All-Stars back over their
own line.
Of course, the fact that there were only a few seconds
left in the game at the time of the sensational scoring had
quite a bit to do with it. An incident like that causes quite a
bit of excitement. And although I am not easily excited, I
must admit my emotions got the better of me, but only for
a moment.
However, the thrilling episode was enough to make anyone excited. It's not every day you see a pack of blue-shirted
students giving their last ounce of energy in a final, payoff-
seeking endeavour.
Rugger's Too Rough For Me
There's only one reason why rugger is so thrilling, as
far as I can see. This game called rugger is a heck of a game
for anyone in his right mind to play. In fact it is murderous.
They tell me my face was white when I watched them carry
off Andy Carmichael with a big lump on his shoulder. But
I told them my face is just naturally like that.
They threw water in my face to revive me after someone
told me the poor guy had broken his collarbone. But that's
life, I guess. Personal, I don't know what it's like to break
a collarbone. In fact, I don't even know what it's like to
break a bone. You see, I've never broken a bone in my body.
But I know lots of characters who would give anything just
to break every bone in my body.
Well, the basketball games were just about as thrilling
and exciting as the rugger tilt. The first one was tighter
than a Scotchman's purse, the lead changing with almost
every basket potted. Orchids are due to Bruce Yorke for
moulding such a team in so short a time.
The Senior A Thunderbirds were off the beam considerably, but managed to salvage the contest on smart individual
play by Ole Bakken and Ron Weber. The Pie-Rates have now
dropped in rating due to the loss of Harry Kermode and
Jack Pomfret who have been posted east.
Senior B's Are Rough, Too
Meanwhile, the Varsity minor hoopers are enjoying a
week's holiday from the King Edward maple courts. With
no games slated this week, the Inter B's and Senior B's have
been taking things easy, but there is one problem which
is bothering them during this period of inactivity.
It is only natural for people (even basketball players)
to think too much when they are in a state of physical inactivity. So now the cagers are worrying about names for
their respective teams. This is easy to understand. The
Senior A's are called "Thunderbirds", so the other squads
are looking for similarly suitable monikers.
Already the Senior B's have come up with a bright tag
for their outfit. Just call them the "Thunderbees" from
henceforth. Now all we have to do is find something to call
the new Inter B's, and the Inter A Frosh, who are no longer
Inter A nor Frosh.
Speaking of the "Thunderbees", they have a fine outfit
this year, and should make a fine showing in the King Ed
loop. The only thing they have to worry about is the rough
style of basketball they play in that division. Manager Bob
Estey will be busier than that little St. John's Ambulance
man at Saturday's rugger match when the league and fists
get into full swing.
Senior B basketball is every bit as rough as rugger.
But getting back on the subject of rugger, this is one form
of sport in which I never wish to participate. The way I
see it, rugger is a game in which one side of the stadium
wants to see fifteen men killed and the other side of the
stadium wants to see fifteen men killed.
Better I should get back to my game of tiddlywinks.

At PT Conference
• MAURY VAN VLIET, the director of physical education
at UBC, has left the coast—but he
will be back next Wednesday. He
has gone to the National Convention of Physical Education at Winnipeg for the next week. Mr. Van
Vliet left Vancouver on the Monday evening train and expects to
be back on the job us soon as he
gets back to UBC.
This National Convention is
held annually at a specified city
in Canada. Representatives from
the different universities of Canada are sent to the meeting to discuss sports topics in general.
This is the first year that UBC
has sent a delegate to the Convention but it is expected that someone will journey east every year
from this yean on.
In the near future, the convention may be held here In Vancouver, since they have been held at
almost very big eastern city in
Mr. Van Vliet will definitely be
back at the university in plenty
of time to finish the training of the
UBC cross country team that will
be taken down to Spokane to enter the annual Pacific Cross Country Meet.
Staey Hoopsters
Downed By Cubs
• WHILE Hallowe'en's cats and
witches prowled around outside, lots of classy basketball was
going on, on the floor at King Ed
gym Tuesday nignt. Heather Cubs
are probably one of the happiest
teams in the league right now for
as yet no one has managed to defeat the Heatherites this year. They
seem to have the idea that they
want to take the championship two
years straight. Tuesday, the Cubs
came from behind to down a fighting bunch of Stacy men, 38-31.
Thc Shoemen upstarts surprised
by sticking right with the highflying Cubs up to the half way
mark. 'Long John' Forsythe dropped in a beauty just before thc
half to put Stacys up 17-16. In the
third quarter Cece McKensle's boys
came through with 13 points without a reply and just held their
lead from there on. Harvey Cook
had a big night netting 12 points
for the winners.
Lack of experience and strong
opposition stopped the Vancouver
College boys in the opener. The
opposition was in the form of the
Gibsons squad from West Van and
they took the Collegiates to the
tune of 34-25. White with 10 points
was high man for the Gibson team.
In the 8 o'clock feature, Mac-
Kenzie-Fraser came from behind
in the last quarter to win their
contest with St. Andrews-Wesley,
Following is the schedule for the
next two weeks:
7:00—Higbies Westerns vs. Tookes
8:00—Higbies vs. Van. College.

Swimmers Meet
At Crystal Pool
• MEMBERS of the Swimming
Club are reminded that there
will be a meeting at the Crystal
Pool on Thursday evening, November 2. The coach will be
there at 5.00 p.m. since the manager of the pool has restricted the
time from then until 7.00 p.m.
This means that those who are
ambitious can get down for a
swim and still get home to do
some work.
Varsity To Tackle Ex-Brits
In Saturday Rugger Game
• VARSITY will be out to improve their position at the
top of the Vancouver Rugby Football Union, when they
face Ex-Britannia at 2 p.m. on Saturday, at Brockton Point.
The dashing UBC squad will meet the cellar dwellers, the
Vancouver Rowing Club at 3:30.
Now that Homecoming is over, the two student fifteens
will concentrate on retaining the Miller Cup, which they won
last year. It is likely that the squads will have the same
lineups that they had at the start of the season.
There will be no playoff for the Miller Cup as there
has been in former years, but the team finishing the schedule
with the most points will be named possessor of the Cup
for the following year.
There will be a practice at 12:30 today for the Frosh
rugger XV in the Stadium. All players who can't get off
on Saturday afternoons are urged to turn out.
Rugger wars between outstanding High School senior
fifteens and Frosh will try to be arranged in the near future
With a few strenuous workouts, the freshmen should be
able to give High School teams like Lord Byng, the Inter-
High champions for the past six years, and Kitsilano, a very
good battle.
It is also hoped that it wiil be possible to engage merchant seamen teams on leave, in some tussles.
