Overcrowding Seen
For Post-War U.'s
• HOPELESSLY overcrowded post-war universities are a
denite possibility in the opinion of Dr. N. A. MacKenzie.
In an address to the UBC Social Problems Club Thursday, Dr. MacKenzie pointed out that the number of returned
men entering UBC after the war would be considerable.
The president expressed the hope that "every returned
man who wants to come back to university will be guaranteed
the opportunity.
No. 6
Problem's Solved
"Everyone should get all the education they are competent to acquire." Dr. MacKenzie said. He
pointed out, however, that this
doesn't mean everyone should attend the University.
The University has become specialized by its pre-requisites—the
ability to pass examinations and
the problem of finance. He hopes
that the latter will be overcome
In the future and that no one who
is capable will be denied the opportunity.
"The more education for the
more people, the better," he said.
Dr. MacKenzie maintained
that living is basic and the ideals
of our present society are power,
opportunity, and wealth.
He stated that these advantages
are obtained best at university in
the opinion of most people. "In
other words," he said, "it has become almost exclusively in function and purpose, vocational."
Although the guest speaker for
the S.P.C didn't object to this
or- criticize It, he was pleased
that many people are, having such
good training. But he believed
that that alone is not enough in
respect to education.
He pointed out that competing
with the old methods of education,
the home, church, and school, we
now havt radio, films, comic strips,
graphic arts, cheap current literature, and to a certain extent the
ordinary orthodox press. In other
words, Dr. MacKenzie believed
in this respect, that "Education
logins with birth."

common virtues.
He had no illusions about the
enduring influence of university
or. a student's character. He mentioned this in connection with his
statement that when people come
to university they tend to be developed along a certain pattern.

Guest of urns
• DR. and MRS. Norman MacKenzie met the governing bodied of the various campus organizations at a banquet held in the
Brock last Thursday.
Among the guests were the presidents of all clubs on the campus,
members of the students' council,
Larry Wragg, exchange student
from McMaster University, Bob
Whyte, past president of the Alma Mater Society, Barry Sleigh,
president of last year's graduating class,
Dr. MacKenzie showed particular Interest ln the Returned Men's
Association, and told the assembly
that he had been president of a
similar club after the last war,
called the "Has Been" club. Both
Dr. and Mrs. MacKenzie were Interested in the Skiing Club.
In turn, all the guests gave their
name and the name of the club
which they represented. Longest
speech of the evening was made
by Ken Creighton who said that
he was Treasurer ot the AMS and
that he "tried to find out where
the money went, Just like everyone else."
"Rather an acute seating shortage, isn't there?"
"The University should be active in the field of achieving
breadth of outlook, flexibility of
mind, tolerance and discrimination."
The president didn't think these

pictures In question are the small
individual shots put in the class
section of the annual.
The Totem cannot afford to get
these pictures taken free, so each
student who wants his picture to
appear In the class section of the
annual must pay $1.50. For this
you get, besides your picture for
the Totem, a large print In a folder.
Since all cuts in the book must
be uniform, your picture must

Banned in Brock
• STRINGENT rules for the behaviour of students in the
Brock Building have been announced by Mr. Mitchell, Proctor
of the building. They are to be
used as a measure of protection
for the furniture.
No top-coats may be worn. They
must be put in the Cloakrooms
in the Basement.
No writing with ink can be allowed in the Main Lounge.
No lunches may be eaten in the
building except for the meals
served in the Dining room.
stead of dropping that cigarette
carton on the walk just off the
Mall, carry it a few feet to the
waste can. Not only on this road,
but all over the campus and In
every building there are plenty
of waste catchers.   Use them.
In a special appeal to the freshmen Ainsworth reminds them all
that while they have to attend the
elections in the Auditorium on
Monday, they should remember
that Monday is Auditorium Day.
This means that on Monday especially everyone in the Auditorium should   make  sure  that  they
carry their lunch papers and pop
bottles out with them after the e-
lections. The pop bottles should
be returned to the proper vendor,
and the lunch papers placed In the
proper receptacles.
Monday, October 2, is an important date on the campus. Not
only is it Frosh election day, but
it is also the opening day for the
Clean-up Campaign, and it Is

KEENE, N. H. (U.P.)-The pet

G. Stanton was sent home to spend
the summer with the aid of the
Red Cross, which arranged air and
rail passage from Panama.
Naturally, our finance-conscious
council began to do some simple
mathematical deductions and
eventually came to the conclusion
that our long dormant piano should
be rejuvenated, repaired and reconditioned in the interests of
better music and a substantial
monetary saving.
The Steinway originally cost the
University some 12000 but was not
sold during the intervening years
because of its high price. Repairs
on the Instrument will run around
$400 and although this may appear
to be a rather large sum It Is felt
that a saving will be effected.
The long-needed move came as a
result of energetic campaigning by
Allan Ainsworth and Gordon Bertram, who headed the committee
agitating for the return of the
In Education
WASHINGTON (UP) - The recently enacted "G.I. Bill of Rights"
will enable nearly 1,000,000 veterans of World War II to attend any
accredited schools or coUegea they
choose, the Office of War Information said in a report on education opportunities provided under
the bill. ,
Under the act, OWI said, a veteran may obtain educational benefits and a disability pension simultaneously. Any person who
served In the Army, Navy, Marine
Corps or Coast Guard for at least
three months between Sept. 16,
1940, and the end of the war is
eligible for these benefits.
Persons who were discharged
after less than 90 days' active service because of an Injury incurred
in line of duty, or who were honorably discharged for any other
reason, also are eligible to receive
this financial assistance for educational purposes.
To take advantage of these facilities, the report said, the veteran
must enter school not more than
two years after the end of the war,
whichever is later. But under no
conditions, it was emphasized, will
these benefits be granted beyond
seven years after the close of the
Frosh Vote Monday

The Bright Future
The bright future, which to varsity
students seemed so near in those first two
weeks before this session began, does not
now seem so close. The military experts
then were predicting the end of the war
with Germany this year, finish for Japan
sometime in 1945. Prime Minister Churchill
puts V-Day over Germany on his calendar
for the Spring of '45. While some people
still maintain that their servicemen relatives
will be home for Christmas and Walter
Winchell loses money on fantastic bets, it
is our opinipn that the bright future is still
some time away. So far, in fact, that the
undergraduates of today will be graduates
at its realization.
Some of us have been deceived with
this apparent close proximity of the bright
future so that our efforts toward it have
slackened. Some of ua have not even done
much to contribute to it. But whatever our
attitude, everyone of us believes in it. It
is the future, and the future must be bright.
Our ideas as to just what it is are hazy,
but it is a golden dream in which the highest
form of civilization will reign in the interests
of man.
Peeple say that an international brotherhood of men will arise from the ruins of
totalitarianism, that true freedom will be
for every man, that work, food, and security
will never be wanting. They say that there
will be no wars. Advancement of mankind
will be the prime motive of the world's
initiative. The people are generally agreed
on these ends, but differ in their means of
attaining these ends.
The means, some developed recently,
others in existence for some time, are the
great bone of contention of today. No
matter which side you are on, however, in
the great struggle of the means, one important factor remains to be decided before
any of the means can be applied successfully.
This we call the inability of the human race
to live compatibly. Whether it be as nations,
national groups or individuals people have
never been able to live in complete peace.
They cannot "get along" together. Always
there are quarrels, petty jealousies, minor
disagreements. Some people are proud,
conceited, scornful, sarcastic and selfish.
Until the world applies "to do unto
others" all its schemes for promoting the
welfare of man will come to naught. This,
like charity, begins at home. It must start
with individuals and grow in scope until
nations can live like friendly neighbors.
Otherwise, the world will always need
policemen, just as cities need their police
forces and their courts to catch criminals
and prosecute offences against the peace.
A change in human nature must take place
or that bright future will remain only a
golden dream of idealists such as we.
At It Again
Among the most pleasant recollections
of varsity life which students carry with
them into the world outside are the various
productions of the student art societies.
Music and drama at this university have
always been conducted on a high standard
and student appreciation for this has never
been lacking. Perhaps only in The Ubyssey
has any adverse criticism appeared, which,
although meant to be frank and constructive,
has never been seconded by the majority
of students. Our Players Club and Musical
Society have succeeded in providing enter-
' tainment, which after all is their purpose.
But this old kill-joy, the student paper,
cannot hold its peace. We would tear the
world down and build it up again if we
could. Forgive us then, if we offer a suggestion to the Musical Society, covered as
usual with our cloak of ignorance and suit
of impudence.
For as many years as we can remember,
students have enjoyed the Musical Society's
Gilbert and Sullivan operettas. Students
like Gilbert and Sullivan, we like Gilbert
and Sullivan, everybody does. Nobody can
say  that  Gilbert  and  Sullivan have  not
produced some very fine music. But just
like we get tired of T-Bone steaks for dinner
every night, we are getting tired of Gilbert
and Sullivan. This then ia our suggestion.
Let us leave the music masters for a year
and try any one of the number of light
operas which have appeared on the musical
comedy stage in the last century.
Anyone who has attended the Vancouver Parks Board's "Theatre Under the
Stars" can testify to the entertainment value
of their productions, culled from the works
of composers all over the world. They are
filled with music that has thrilled audiences
for years and packed with drama, adventure
and romance which could not prove boring
to university students. We do not think
that^these light operas are any more difficult
for student amateurs than Gilbert and
Sullivan. Nor should they be more
We hope we are not poking our editorial
nose into what'some one considers none of
our business, but we would like consideration of this suggestion. We think it's worth
There seems to be more fact than fable
in the tradition of two-gun-toting Texans.
According to the Post Office in Dallas,
Texas, a Texan doesn't feel at home without
his six-gun strapped on—especially when
he's overseas in heavy fighting.
The Dallas Post Office has been flooded
with G-I requests for old-fashioned Texas
shootin' irons. The doughboys write that the
weapons issued by the War Department are
not good enough for shooting varmints.
But the Texans will have to fire as well
as they can with the guns they have. There's
a law against mailing fire-arms—even to kill'
Japs or Germans.
In 1941, J. E. Martin left Fort Worth,
Texas, to take a construction job in the
British West Indies.
While sailing about 300 miles off the
coast of Virginia, Martin threw a bottle overboard which contained his wife's name and
Sure enough, his wife recently received
a letter from a woman in Ireland, explaining
that she'd found the bottle on a beach, with
the note intact.
It took four years to prove Martin's test.
But he's satisfied. He'll believe such things
now when he reads them in books.
• people and things      by cai whitehead
•   A FAMILY OF Racoons once lived in
a large, comfortable home in the middle
of a large forest.
There were Father Coon, Mother Coon
and twenty-one baby coons; thirteen who
resembled their father and eight who resembled their mother.
Father and Mother Coon were powerfully built animals that stood just so far off
the ground. Their long greyish-brown fur
gave them a distinction from all the other
ordinary animals in the forest.
They had sharp, pointed, sensitive noses
and wide-alert ears. They had big, dark
circles around their eyes. This gave them
the appearance of being old and tired, but
it was really very natural. They needed
the circles for protection. And besides that,
they had all inherited them so there was
nothing they could do about them even if
they wanted to.
Their front feet were more like hands
than ordinary paws with a short thumb and
four long flexible fingers for grasping. On
the ends of these fingers were exceedingly
long claws which were very formidable
The baby coons, when not sleeping, were
very playful and mischievous, in fact, they
resembled twenty-one little kittens.
Father Coon spent most of the daytime
asleep in the boughs of a big, tall tree. He
had rolled himself into a ball and wrapped
his tail around himself in such a way as to
make it difficult to distinguish him from the
shadows of the foliage.
When night came on, Father and Mother
Coon came down from the tree to find some
food for themselves and their young ones.
During the summer they had lived
mostly on mice, trout, birds' eggs and juicy
little snakes, but they had for some time,
been keeping their eyes on Farmer Brown's
corn patch which was nearby.
They had also been keeping their eyes
on Farmer Brown's excellent crop of young
By and by when they felt that they
could no longer wait, they decided that it
was time for a real Thanksgiving dinner. So
it was agreed among them that Mother Coon
should visit the corn patch and take all the
biggest, fattest, juiciest ears of corn. And
while she was doing this, it was Father
Coon's duty to go quietly to the chicken
roost and get all the fattest young roosters
he could carry.
That was a very happy occasion for all
the Coon family and so they all lived happily
ever after.

Letter To
The Editor
The Editor,
The Ubyssey.
Dear Sir,
Space in your edition of September 23 devoted to the organization of ex-servicemen on the
campus was greatly appreciated
and will, lt Is hoped, be Instrumental in acquainting the student
body with the purpose of such a
club. Although we are organized
as a group, we are by no means
attempting to segregate ourselves
from the rest of the University.
Rather, It is an attempt to become
a part of life on the University
The Incidents which you mentioned as having taken place In
Universities in the United States
are, to say the least, regrettable,
and are the very things we are
trying to avoid at this University.
The only way to do this Is through
an organization which will servo
as a link between service and civilian life. This step is not easy to
a person who has spent the past
few years in a uniform, and it Is
hoped that the fellows will fit into
University life much more readily.
It should be pointed out that the
CURMA is in no way connected
with any other organization of returned men, that it is purely a
University club.

need for a small, compact and easily operated electron microscope
for widespread use by doctors and
research men. It ls suitcase size
and weighs 78 pounds. A vacuum
pump, weighing 55 pounds, comprises a second unit. The weight
of the microscope itself can be reduced still further when steel and
other heavy metals now used in
it are replaced by lightweight alloys.
The new model is ten times more
powerful than the ordinary light
microscope, sufficient to cover the
majority of present-day applications. Therefore it ia able to hold
its own beside the big, covention-
al electron microscope. Here the
comparison Is astonishing, for the
latter ranges in height from seven
to 12 feet, weighs one and a half
tons or more, and has a multitude
of dials and special Installation*.
Compare this with the new suitcase model, which has only two
knobs, can be plugged into any
ordinary electrical outlet, and can
be picked up and carried from one
place to another.

• BUSINESS at the University
Bookstore haa increased by
leaps and bounds this year. Long
lines of patient and impatient students are mute evidence of this
faet. This Increase Is due ln the
main to the increase in registration.
Many students have felt that the
prices of books at the store are
much too high. However, the
manager would like them to know
that, compared to prices at other
Universities, UBC books are comparatively cheap. He mentioned
the fact that he is supplying a student in an eastern university for
this very reason.
Despite the great demand the
staff has been able to supply most
of the required books. Orders may
be left at the book store for copies
of those books whose supply haa
now been exhausted by student
The figures for this year's sales
are not yet available, but it is certain that they will surpass last
year's sales by a large margin.

• FURTHER support for the
founding of a medical faculty
at the University of British Columbia has come from Dr. Harrb
McPhedran, president of the Canadian Medical Association and assistant professor of Medicine at
the University of Toronto.
"Why should your young men
have to go away to study medicine," he asked the annual convention of the B.C. Medical Association. "You have the men and
materials here for a faculty of
medicine and I hope to hear one
is started shortly."
The medical association discussed establishment of a medical
faculty at UBC, all' agreeing this
Is necessary.
Methods of financing such a faculty were discussed, private endowment and the Rockefeller
Foundation being mentioned.
B.C. is one of the few provinces
without a medical faculty, Dr. M-
Phedran said he understands Saskatchewan Is planning one fop Its
Dr. K. D. Panton, chairman of
the educational committee, informed the meeting that Dr. C.
E. Dolman haa conducted an intensive survey and had submitted
a brief to the senate of the University of British Columbia. The
Board of Governors had also nominated a- committee to act with the
B.C. association and approach the
government for financial aid.
The joint committee reported
that a school large enough to
graduate 50 students annually and
operating at a cost of 1150,000 to
1200,000 would be required, Dr.
Panton explained. There would be
two buildings to house that school,
one adjoining the institute of preventive medicine to be constructed

For regulations governing Fees,
consult your Calendar, pages 37-40

The University of British Columbia
designed mainly to acquaint first
year students with the ways of the
campus, but upperclaaawomen are
needed to help initiate and welcome new members.
All girls interested in promoting
friendliness, meeting people, and
enjoying themselves are asked to
join right now. There is a meeting,of all Phrateres Monday noon
in Arts 100. A more detailed account of the activities of the club
will be given then.
Among other things, the club
features a fall formal, a spring
dance, a service dance and the
riotous Phrateres camp after
Spring exams. This year, under
^the guidance of Julie Van Gorder,
many other affairs are In the offing for members.
Those who attended last year's
camp at Gambier Island held a
camp reunion last night at the
home of Ivy Pronger. The girls
spent the evening reminiscing and
exchanging snap-shots. From the
sound of the memories which were
revived, the camp should be even
more popular this year.
Council Hi
Vouth Committee
e DURING THE summer the
Students' Council sent the
Canadian Youth Commission a
contribution of 120 to help carry
on its work.
This youth service was formed
in Canada to aid young men and
women in solving the problems
which will confront the post war
' world. It was set up under the
auspices of the Y.M.C.A. several
years ago in order to encourage
the discussion of problems among
young people.
The, commission was started up
ln Vancouver at the beginning of
this year, and the members of A
MS were invited to attend meetings. It is not a permanent organization and hopes to complete its
work by April 1, 1945. Composed
of private citizens, the organization is financed voluntarily by
Vancouver firms.

• THE FIRST rehearsal of the
newly formed UBC concert orchestra will be held Monday evening at the home of John Cherniav-
sky, personnel manager. All members who have not been contacted
and other string instrumentalists
interested should contact M r.
Cherniavsky at BAy. 8300. Auditions for new members will be
held soon.
Arrangements for two noon-hour
concerts in the very near future
are being made. The program will
consist ot well known selections
especially chosen for the orchestra.
CBC artist, Gregory Miller, will
be the regular orchestra conductor.
Membership in the orchestra will
be conferred only at the discretion
of the executive.
CUP Civet Inter
Varsity newt
• OCCASIONALLY newa appears in the Ubyssey proceeded
by the initials CUP. Here it a
short summary of the explanation
of this news service for those who
are not familiar with it.
The Canadian University Press
service was founded in 1938 u an
orgaization to cover all major
campuses ln Canada and arrange
for the transmission of news items
to and from all the University papers which would be interested.
There is no central organization
but is composed solely of the member newspapers, each of which has
an editor to represent CUP.
There Is, however, a central executive, consisting of an annually-elected president, three regional vice-presidents and a secretary-
treasurer. Membership is actually
vested in the member papers
themselves, but the editors-in-
chief usually represent their respective publications.
The fundamental aim of the C.
U.P. lies deeper that the mere
swapping of news stories of universal interest to Canadian students. With the co-operation and
active support of every member
publication it should be possible
to knit together all the campuses
across the Dominion, widely separated though they are by special
and environmental factors, in a
concerted body of student opinion.
O   FOR THE satisfaction of all
males, the Directory should be
out in approximately three weeks.
Work started on this indispensable little manual last Thursday,
after some delay due to the slowness in receiving registration cards
from the students.
The Directory cannot be pub-'
lished until all cards are in the
hands of the editors, and at present there are a few cards still in
If any student has some spare
time to devote to typing the Directory, all offers of assistance will
be gratefully received. As a result of the increase to three issues of the Ubyssey weekly, the
Directory is a little shorthanded
at times for typists.
It won't be long now until all
men in wolves' clothing will be
able to get the exchange of any
slick little chick on the campus.
e THE UNIVERSITY Employment Bureau is open for student part-time work registration
on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 12:30 announced Helen Duncan, acting Director of the Bureau.
Miss Duncan has taken over
during the absence of Brian Burke,
Director, who is expected back
on October 1.

the gospel.
according to LUKE MOYLS
• TIME WAS when I thought I was pretty important. But
lately, I figure there's at least one character who has it
all over me. It's hard to admit, but he's got me beat.
Now this certain character'is not exactly popular, nor
is he unpopular. But somehow he always manages to keep
in the news. In fact, he's the one character that everyone
will talk about at the slightest provocation.
He goes by the name of Jupiter Q. Pluvius. You know
him. He's the character that turns on the sprinkler system
when you don't need it.
Well, it was on Thursday night that I came to respect
this character Jupe. On that night it started to pour, and
I do mean the rain. And it was all Jupe's fault.
However, it was not the fact that slight precipitation in
the upper atmosphere was going on all over Vancouver that
night which peeved me, or rather instilled me with respect
for this Pluvius character.
Jupe Stops The Big Leagues
No, it wasn't that, for there is so much rain around this
town that an extra inch doesn't impress me much.
The thing which did impress me, though, struck me right
between the eyes as I walked into the News Herald on that
terrible night. There it was, coming over the teletype, and
dealing me a thought-shattering blow.
"The heavens wept in St. Louis Thursday, washing out'
the opening of the important four-game series between the
New York Yankees and Jhe Browns", I read with sorrowful
eyes. What a thing to happen. And it was all Jupe's fault.
It was then that I began to think what an important
character this man Pluvius really is. After all, it isn't
everybody who can hold up the big leagues, let alone my
New York Yankees.
Carl and Jupe, What A Pair!
And speaking of my Yanks, Joe McCarthy, their manager, still is hopeful of landing his club on the top shelf, in
spite of the fact that they are trailing the league-leading
Detroit Tigers by quite a margin.
Personal, I am not so hopeful, for I am still inclined
to think the Tigers will take the American League Pennant.
And I see by Vancouver's favorite morning newspaper
that Carlos Q. Robertson, another sports editor, thinks along
similar lines.
But what I cannot understand is why this man Robertson
thinks the Bengals will be tough to beat in the World Series.
And he is a St. Louis Cardinal man himself. What a big
fnumph! Why, he is practically denying himself. Can't he
make up his mind?
Come to think of it, maybe Carlos and Jupiter should
get together. There are millions of times when this character
Jupe can't seem to make up his mind either.
The humunitariuu agencies of Greater
Vancouver which devote their loving
kindness to the many in need of guidance and assistance these turbulent
days appeal for your financial help.
Won't you give and give generously to
the Combined Community Chest appeal
now in progress? No amount too small.

If a good crew can be turned

Spence got three fat blows in five
times at bat.
Stan started it in the second
frame with a hit, went to second
on a fielder's choice and then came
home on Mike Ouerra's single to
give Washington a 1-0 lead.
With two on in the third stanza,
Stan came up again. He unwound
on a fast one and lined it into the
upper right-field grand stand. The
Senators were out in front 4-0.
What happened later mattered
little. To make the setback even
more serious, Detroit's righthanded
star—Dizzy Trout—was the loser.

A total of 17 teams were represented at the conference, and the
two UBC squads, represented by
Bud McLeod and Luke Moyls, were
UBC Frosh (Inter A) and Varsity
(Senior B).
Several Interesting Items were
discussed on the side, which included Senior League topics since
President Lloyd Purdy and Joe
Policy were present.
According to Polley, who represented the BCABA, Pat Bay RCAF
are interested in playing in the
V and D Senior League, which
means that there are now three
prospects for a senior loop. Varsity
Thunderbirds, Vancouver RCAF
and Pat Bay RCAF.
The Senior League expects to get
down to business next Tuesday
when there will be a general meeting of the V and D League in the
YMCA at 8 o'clock.
Full organization of the minor
loop is slated for their next conference on Thursday, also at the
"Y" at 8 o'clock. At this meeting,
all prospective clubs will present
applications and entry fees, and
new teams will be voted in by the
squads returning from last year.
Lined up for the Frosh outfit are
Pat McGeer, Reg Clarkson, Ed
Ryan, Gerry Stevenson, Freddie
Bossons, Herb Capozzi, Dave Blair,
Bob Haas, Don Kler, Bo Hender-

Chuck Wright. A coach has not
yet been lined up for the team,
but Laurie Dyer will look after the
managerial duties.

the players will have to be satis-

For Homecoming it is hoped that
a contest can be arranged with the

much in doubt due mainly to
transportation difficulties. Last
