New Record
Set For
Registration
UBC has galloped "over the top"
again.
The University still is zooming upwards on the crest of its postwar
boom, Registrar Charles B. Wood revealed Monday, and has established
another new record for September
registration.
Registration now totals 9057 with
an additional 100 students expected
to swell the ranks before term's end
Mr. Wood said.
At the end of the 1946-47 term,
UBC students totalled 9035—and at
this time last year, but 8550.
Other records have been shattered
by registration of veterans and graduate students.
UBC last year had 25 graduates
studying on the campus, this year
there are 194.
More than 4000 ex-servicemen registered this term have also set a new
record.
At the University of Alberta, officials announced registration for this
year would exceed 4500, with 2300
ex-service students.
UBC Plays Host
To IRC Delegates
University of British Columbia will
be host to approximately 100 delegates from 43 schools and colleges at
the north west regional conference
of International Relation Clubs to be
held on Nov. 21 and 22 at Acadia
Camp.
Attending this conference will be
representatives from four states and
three provinces.
Discussions will be on either "The
Marshall Plan" or "the Differences
between Russia and the Western
Democracies,"
Also attending the conference will
be a secretary sent here from the
Carnegie Foundation, N ew York
City.
Delegates will be housed at Acadia Camp.
Science Smoker
Replaces Banquet
Engineers this year will replace
their annual banquet with a smoker
it was decided at a meeting of the
EUS executive Tuesday.
In a meeting held to discuss the
budget and the social calendar for
the year, president Ron Grantham
reported to the executive that the
budget for the year had been cut
from $3026 to $1,791.'
As a result of the cut the executive
decided to hold a stag party in place
of the annual banquet this year. The
place and the exact date of the stag
will be announced within the next
few days.
BLOOD WILL SAVE the victims of this tragic smash up when
the Red Cross emergency blood bank set up in every hospital
brings free plasma to the injured. To boost available blood, the
Red Cross is seeking two pints a year from every UBC student.
Two Pints Per Student
Goal Of Blood Drive
"Two donations a year from every person on the campus"
is the goal of the committee in charge of blood donations for
UBC in the forthcoming drive.

cal A'ssociation stated that two or
three transfusions a year will have
no effect on the health and well-
being of the normal Canadian.
Very little time elapses usually between the time the blood is given and
the time it is used to save a life.
The free blood donated to the Red
Cross enables doctors to hasten the
recovery of people who could not
afford a transfusion.
In Vancouver General Hospital,
three times the amount of blood formerly used a month is available for
transfusion since the Red Crass Service went  into operation.
Results show that patients have a
greater margin of safety in both surgical and maternity cases, according
to the director of anaesthesia at the
hospital.
$250 Essay Prize
Offered Students
A new award of $250 is available
to graduates, and undergraduates in
their final year, doing major work

Bursaries,  Monday,
This scholarship, the gift of the
trustees of a fund established by the
late Alan Boag, will be awarded for
the best essay or report on some
aspect of socialism, he said.
Students intending to compete
must be proceeding to a further year
of study at UBC, and must have

Council 'Deplores7 Greek
'Snobbery7 In Cafeteria
AMS MEETING
A General meeting of the AMS will
be held Thursday at 11:30 an, in the
Stadium. Attendance of the full student body is requested.
On the agenda will be the motion
to legalize campus political clubs and
the Pre Med Society will give a
report on the progress of the campaign to establish a medical school.
Leaves Action To Underhill
Out Of Their Jurisdiction
"The snobbish and undemocratic attitude" shown by Greek
Letter societies in holding tables in the caf, alleged last week
in an attack by Caf Manager, Frank Underhill, was attacked by
Student Council, Monday night.
-$
Students Decide Political
Issue At Meet Thursday
Council was standing pat on their recommendation to allow
political clubs on campus this morning after receiving the
official nod from the administration.
Meanwhile the semi-annual meeting of the AMS—at which
the council recommendation will form the major item on the
agenda and at which council will ask student OK on their
policy—looms tomorrow morning at 11:30 in the Stadium.
Plans   are   nearing   completion   to^	
have the campus shut down entirely
to allow a full student attendance.
LECTURES CANCELLED
Lectures will be cancelled at 11:30
and the armories and Brock Hall will
be closed. Possibility of closing
campus eating facilities is now under
negotiation.
This will be the second time the
student body has been asked to vote
on this question.
Early in the 1946 term, the Student
Council was asked to sanction formation of a branch of thej|^6l''i»r6-
gressive Party, and this request was
immediately followed by a similar request from a Progressive Conservative
group.
COTC Recruits
Limited Number
Training Corps is now open to a
limited number of recruits.
Male British subjects between the
ages of 18 and 22, interested in the
army as a career, or in the Reserve
Force, will receive booklet form information and applications forms on
applying to the orderly room in the
Armouries.
First year students accepted will
receive approximately 10 to 15 hours
extra-curricular instruction per annum. Second year men receive approximately 40 hours extra instruction.
The spring session is followed by
four months of Army Camp, as Temporary Second Lieutenants at $135.00
per month. Lodging, board, medical
care and uniforms are also provided.
Special concessions regarding age
and former time will be made to any
veterans interested,
Phrateres Elect
New Executive
Phrateres members once again
elected Dean Dorothy Mawdsley as
Honorary President and Dr. Halla-
more as Honorary Vice-President
when the club held its first meeting
of the year at 12:30 Tuesday,
The social calendar was planned to
include a banquet for old members in
Brock Dining Room on October 14
and the annual Co-ed formal in the
first   week  of  November,
Final plans for the "fireside" were
made. Nine homes will be thrown
open to welcome freshettes to the
club on Sunday afternoon, October
5, from three to five. A list of these
homes is posted on the Arts notice
board and freshettes are asked to
.sign their names under the house
that will be most convenient for
them.
Student Council, following recognized procedure, referred the question
to President N.A.M. MacKenzie and
the Board of Governors. After consideration, the Board passed the problem back to Council and commented
that the will of the student body
should be followed.
Student Council under the direction
of President Alan Ainsworth, put
the question up to the student body
in a plebiscite held in February 1946.
On the result of this plebiscite, Student Council turned down the applications for formation of political clubs.
Since then, under LSB, three discussion groups, the "Liberal Forum,"
"Socialist Forum," and the "Communist Forum," have become recognized
as clubs . They are sanctioned as
discussion groups, not as political
clubs
POLITICAL CLUBS
The new resolution will permit political clubs to be formed as such,
instead of as discussion groups as
they are now operating.
"This resolution is to present a
clear - cut issue to the student body.
We have drafted an amendment to
the constitution that is workable and
fair, and such which can be and will
be rigidly enforced," said Grant
Livingstone, AMS President, in an
interview  Tuesday.
Forum Season
Opens Friday
The Parliamentary Forum will
open its season Friday at noon with a
debate on Russo-American relations
by Dr. Bernet Savez and Dr. Harry
Warren.
The speakers will be introduced by
President N.A.M. MacKenzie. Following their arguments the floor will be
opened to speakers from the audience
according to custom.
If arrangements are completed the
Forum will be rebroadcast over CJOR.
Torontonian Gives
Slav Studies $100
A Toronto business man has made
the University of British Columbia's
department of Slavonic Studies a gift
of $100.
A recent visitor on the UBC campus,
the Toronto man was so impressed by
the quality and importance of the
work being clone in Slavonic Studies
and Russian that after his return to
Toronto he sent President N.A.M.
MacKenzie a personal cheque.
The money will be used to purchase
additional hooks and material for
tlie  department.
After a tiff which split council
on the problem, a motion was passed
"deploring" the situation and recommending that a plea be sent to Underhill and to the Administration asking
for action. #
NO ACTION
Council believes that since the caf
does not come under their purisdic-
tion action can be taken only by^he
administration.
Pan-Hellenic society and Inter-
Fraternity Council will be informed
before any action is taken in order
to allow them an opportunity "to put
their house in order."
ANTI GREEK
Speaking against the Greeks, Council members declared that sorority
and fraternity tables have become social gathering places, where members
come to eat prepared lunches—few
to buy anything more than a bottle
of milk.
"Students who must buy their
lunches wander around the greek
tables looking for space to set down
their trays," councillors protested.
In answer to pleas that there is no
reason why n on-greeks cannot use
greek tables, councillors charged that
"although dirty looks and stage whispers are not legally culpable, they are
effective."
Accident Fund Set
Up Under AMS
Under the auspices of the Alma
Mater Society an accident benefit
fund has been set up in the interest
of any of the student body who may
have sustained injury while participating in AMS activity.
Although the Student Council is
not legally bound to payment, an injured student may apply and if found
to be justified, will receive for sustained injuries up to $100. All applications must be passed on the council.
There is a limited amount of $3000
in the fund, $1000 of which must be
kept in reserve each year.
After consultation with representatives of the Alma Mater Society, the
executive of the Thunderbird Gliding and Soaring Club have agreed to
operate independently of the AMS
as far as the Accident Fund is concerned.
According to Bob Harwood, AMS
treasurer, the AMS feels that the club,
besides involving certain hazard,
should be considered, exempt because
of its small membership, expensive
activities, and its unserviceable nature
as far as the rest of the student
body Ls concerned.
Bagpipes Wail
In Fall Term
Skirlin' pipes and rollin drums will
echo clown the mall again this year.
Varsity pipers held their first meeting of the term Monday to organize
and plan the activities of the second
pipe band to appear on the campus.
The influx of new kilts will make
the band the largest in Vancouver
with a membership of 20 pipers and
7 drummers.
J. F. Munro president of the association says, that heading the Scots
will be Pipe Major Ian McKinnon,
assisted   by   Pipe  Sargeant J.   Low.
Assisting president Munro will be
Margaret Mickay in the office of
club .secretary.

DON'T MISS IT
Over the past thirty years—since its in-
ception—the Ubyssey has carried editorials
and columns during the first week of October
of each year exhorting students to attend the
semi-annual meeting of the AMS, which is
pulled of! at this time each year.
These editorials—some good, some not so
good—have evoked the fundamental thesis of
democracy, namely representation of the
masses, they have painted grim pictures of a
campus over-powered by small pressure
groups, they have pointed with pride to the
strength of student autonomy at UBC—all in
an effort to get a quorum at the first AMS
meeting of the year,
The perennial message is once more in
order.
Fact is, we don't care if you never attend
an AMS meeting, but this time just try and
do anything else. All lectures will be cancelled, campus eating facilities will be closed,
the armories and Brock Hall will be closed,
and the lawns are damp.
A half-hour on the cold benches of the
Stadium may not be pleasant but a promising
card has been billed by the council promoters
and a hot session is predicted.
Why not come and watch the emotions
flare—stage call 11:30 tomorrow.
QUORUMS NOW AND THEN
At AMS meetings in previous years it
has been customary for a frustrated lobbiest
to inquire if a quorum was present when the
proceedings were not to his satisfaction.
According to section 5 of by-law 2 of the
constitution of the Alma Mater Society a
quorum is 33 1/3 per cent of the active
members of the society. As it has proved
practically impossible to assemble this number of students, more than a few meetings
have been stymied.
However, if any student is contemplating
this old trick at to-morrow's meeting he will
be disappointed. By the rules of order now
observed by the AMS a quorum is considered
to be present if the minutes of the previous
meeting are read and adopted without the
question of attendance being raised.
We are therefore taking this opportunity
to warn the players and fans of the old
quorum game that once the minutes are
passed there ^is a quorum present whether
they like it or not.
If any believer in democracy feels that
the students assembled are not a truly representative body he should so state when the
meeting is called to order and not when his
own pet theories are being overruled.
The Mummery
By JABEZ
(Ed. Note—Yesterday The Daily Ubyssey printed an obituary for Jabez, noted
campus humorist. But proving that once a
humorist, always a humorist, no matter where
he may be, the following epic was received
by direct wire from the place where columnists go when they fade away.)
I have just returned to work refreshed
by a summer course in handweaving. I can
now weave hands at a tremendous rate, in
several handsome patterns. My output is restricted only by the limited supply of hands
(most people seem to be hanging on to their
hands, wringing them, even).
Besides hands I can weave genuine Indian blankets, so well that several genuine
Indians are suing me for infringement of
copyright. The Extension Department never
told me about this when I took the course.
Another Extension Department course
that I took with a view to tripling my income
and astounding my friends was Painting for
Pleasure. After spending several enjoyable
weeks sloshing Beauty on Canvas, my income
is about the same but my friends are certainly
astounded. They tell me I'm another Gauguin
and urge me to go to Tahiti, Or the Belgian
Congo. Or Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. For
God's sake go someplace, they tell me.
Our painting class started out as the
Group of Fifteen and ended up as the Group
of Four and an Unidentified Small Boy. We
painted the untamed forest, a number of
strictly wild ferns, and some downright vicious water lilies.
As soon as the instructor told Miss Pike,
one of our more tense members, that she was
a "primitive", she become a different person.
She painted her toenails blue and let her hair
grow over her face, so that we finally had to
inform her family that we could no longer
be responsible for her.
Our Mr. Dobbs, on the other hand, assured us that he was a surrealist, and that
he was expressing his subconscious. We all
felt sorry for Mr. Dobbs because his subconscious was obviously in a terrible mess. A
welter of telephones and wheelbarrows and
ladies' chests.
Our old-fashioned member was Mrs. Harvard-Pail, who refused to be dissuaded from
painting things you could recognize. She
painted a dead flounder so lifelike, or deathlike, that several observers swore they could
smell it.   Mrs. Harvard-Pail plans to have an
outdoor exhibition some day when the wind's
right.
My own technique is to paint with the
thumb. I discovered my aptitude for this
method by pricing brushes. You just jab
your thumb in the paint, gouge the canvas as
though it were a fellow commuter, and bingo!
—you're a post-impressionist.
The reason I mention these accomplishments is that I owe my success to the varied
courses offered by the Extension Department.
Yet, developing my latent talents is only
a small part of the Department's work, which
extends into every branch of human activity.
Suppose, for example, that a beekeeper
in Revelstoke is having trouble with his bees.
Instead of leaving the honey in the comb,
his bees are packaging it, labelling it, and
selling it direct to the retailer. Evidently
these bees are getting too smart for their
pants, but does the beekeeper' despair? Not
on your life. He just writes to the Extension
Department and they promptly mail him a
booklet, "How to Bully Your Bees," or something like that. The Department has a booklet for every emergency.
Or, suppose that the Women's Auxiliary
of the Cloverdale Bird Watchers are anxious
to enjoy the cheap thrill of a film about the
mating habits of the Canada Goose. Do they
have to send a vice-president out into the
marshes with a camera? No, siree. They
just phone the Extension Department, and
right away a willing slave ships them a canful
of celluloid hijinx calculated to remove any
doubt about the source of goslings.
And if the ladies can't get a film they
can always get a professor.    The Extension
Department maintains a hotbed of professors
guaranteed  to  speak  just  long  enough   to
build up your appetite for refreshments. Most
of these professors choose as their subject
"The World Today" or "Which Way Out?"
or a similar theme, and proceed to show how
resolution  of  the   global   crisis  depends   on
Nuclear Physics,  International    Commerce,
Abnormal   Psychology,   Ancient   Greek,   or
whatever their specialty happens to be.   You
follow them up with doughnuts and" hot coffee.
This doesn't begin to describe the functions of the Extension Department, which,
in its huts by the Library, also contains some
of the prettiest stenos on the campus. It's
no use, I find, writing in for one of them.
Letter  To  The  Editor
Dear Sir:
It is a heartening thing to note
the decision of the Students Council to re-institute the campaign to
establish political clubs on the campus.
Politics is an exhaustive study.
Every phase and aspect of life is in
one way or another related to politics. In this rapidly changing and
developing world it is our duty to our
democratic ideals to acquaint ourselves with the various forms of political thought and" action and having done so to act as we see fit.
As mature people, we students are
no isolated section of the community.
We are and will be woven into the
great fabric of society and will be
subjected to all it's stress and strains.
It is our good fortune as University
students to gather knowledge, which
is unavailable to others and we
should ensure that in the all Important field of politics that we should
make no exceptions.
As I have pointed out, it is erroneous to think that political ideas can
be isolated from our everyday life
and it is also foolish to think that
people who are interested in politics
can be isolated from the remainder
of society.
In section 3 of the proposed Amendment, it states "No such club shall
participate, directly or otherwise, in
elections to any student offices outside of the club, itself and acceptance of such support shall render
any candidate for office ineligible".
This is couched in somewhat vague
terms and could be widely interpreted, It would be unwise to have
elections to our various clubs on the
Campus fought out on party lines
but it would also be unwise to prohibit any individual, who has taken
an active part in political affairs on
and off the Campus from being elected as an officer in any organieation.
It is up to the people in the various
clubs and organizations to elect the
people that they desire as their officers. It is also much better that
the politics of the various candidates
for office should be no secret.
If this section is interpreted, as it
might well be, it would serve to de-
activize those people who are most
interested in campus clubs. Other
than that these people could not actively participate in their own political party club and campus club life
as well.
This would tend to render the political clubs not as effective in presenting political ideas to the campus,
as might be desired, and at the same
time would illustrate how difficult it
is to enforce Section 3.
The vagueness of Section 3 and the
way in which it might be interpreted could very easily defeat the
whole purpose that the organization
of political clubs could serve.
Let us have political clubs on the
campus but without any restrictions
of democratic rights.
Yours truly,
Harold Dean.

NEW UNIVERSITY CHAPLAIN
INTERVIEWED BY UBYSSEY
- By JOAN MOORE -
Reverend Lindsay Stewart, M.A., Chaplain of the University of British Columbia the letter plate in the door of 4297
West 10th announced. In answer to my ring the door was opened
by a short smiling man, clad in a sport shirt and gray slacks.
Shown into a small bookllned study ^
it  was no time  at  all before this
jovial Church of Scotland minister
put me at my ease and had me engaged in conversation.
The "Padre" as he likes to be called
first became interested in Canada
through his association with Canadian
troops who were attached to the
RAF during his eighteen months service with it in Iceland.
GOOD TYPES
"They were good types, lots of fun,"
he said in speaing of them.
He went on to recall the time, when
as official timekeeper for a wrestling
match put on by the Canadian squadron, he got so excited he hit the gong
with the wrong end of the mallet.
Both Padre Stewart and his
charming wife who joined us a few
minutes later, agreed on the similarity
between Scotland and British Columbia, as to geographical outline but
found great difference in many of our
customs, manners and more particularly in our transit system.
TRAM DIFFICULTY
At this point in our conversation
Padre Stewart recounted with a small
glow of triumph how he had discovered just that morning, the difference between a tram and a street-car
Asked if he- expected to be kept
busy this year, the diminutive minister explained his program for the
year, which is certainly a very ambitious one. Chaplain of UBC, minister attached to Acadia, Fort and Little
Mountain Camps where he will be
erpected   to   preside    at    weddings,
HUNTER LEWIS
HOSPITALIZED
Illness will likely prevent English
Professor Hunter C. Lewis from returning to the campus this term, his
physician  reported  Monday.
Prof. Lewis was admitted to St.
Paul's Hospital September 17 suffering from virus pneumonia, His
condition is reported as "improving."
christenings and funerals are but a
few of the many activities ahead of
him.
"I had my first two christenings
this morning—not a bad beginning,"
he said with a smile.
Mrs. Stewart, an aspiring commercial artist, provides an interesting
teacher to six year old Pauline, whose
efforts up to date are nothing to offer
her Mother serious competition, but
what with time there is no telling
how far this girl may go.
BUDDING THREAT
Pauline is more of a threat In the
field of recitation, however. Veteran
of two radio appearances over CJOR,
this small Scottish lass recited with
out the least hesitation for "Daddy's
Friends'" Her slight Scottish accent
added to the charming effect of
"Party Frock."
"I'm afraid she puts it on a bit for
the benefit of her first grade companions," her Dad said with a twinkle.
Conversation then drifted around
to the comparison between students
of Scotland and Canada. Padre
Stewart declared that he found students here were more bitter about
politics. Over there he said, they
have a more real democratic attitude
in this regard.
SYMPHONIC CLUB
MEETS TODAY
General meeting of the Symphonic
Club at noon today, in the Double
Committee Room of the Brock Hall,
will open this year's schedule. The
activities of the club will be explained and it is hoped that Programmes will be distributed for the
first term. If you have not joined yet
this will be your chance, Fees are
now payable at the AMS office, So
whether you have signed up yet or
not come around and get acquainted.

Canadians.

Psych Club
Meets Thursday
The first general meeting of the
Psychology Club will take place at
the Psychology Laboratory, Hut 05,
at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday October 2.
The primary aim of the psychology
club is to act as co-ordinating unit
between the academic and practical
aspects of the subject. Qualifications
for membership include the prerequisite of Majors or Honors in Philosophy or Psychology.
Among the advantages enjoyed by
its members are the following:
Contact with field units and1 current problems.
Survey of existing field openings.
Field trip to the Provincial Mental
Hospital.
Contact with other Universities.
Membership in PsiChi.
Lectures   from   field   celebrities.
Opportunity   to   participate   in   research.
accomplished artists. They'll be held
two hours a week every Monday
night.
Prizek is an art student whose
specially-designed clothes established him as a campus figure on his
return from the air force last year.
The dark, swarthy artist has a Vancouver tailor make up his pea-green
sports jackets and natty trousers from
tMzek's own design, keeping about
six issues ahead of Esquire.
The winter classes, he says, will
give "full rein to freedom of expression among students." Prizek himself
is a follower of the neo-romanlic
school, a sensuous interpretation of
the world.
...Prizek studied under the French-
Swiss artist Andre Bieler, now resident at Queen's University. During
the war he ground out a weekly cartoon for an air force paper and since
his return has completed murals for
a "Greek" cafe and itlustrtions for a
forthcoming book by UBC's Eric
"Jabez"  Nichols.

SCM May Offer
Hope For Many
The Student Christian Movement is
a fellowship of students who are dissatisfied with themselves and with
conditions in the world but who think
that in Christianity may be found
the answeV to the world's problem,
Some members have travelled further
along the road of truth than others
but all honest seekers are recognized
within the Movement.
The methods used by the SCM are
of study groups, worship and action,
and since the special problems of students are often intellectual tlie critical and rational approach to life and
religion is emphasized.
Almost every university in Canada
has its SCM unit, and these are associated in the SCM of Canada which
in turn is part of Ihe World Student
Christian Federation.
The program for the coming year
will be a study of religious, social,
economic and political problems, both
in general and as related to the individual.
Captured Nazi Sailplane
Prize Of Gliding Club
A captured German glider is now the prize possession of
the Thunderbird Gliding and Soaring Club.
The. glider is one of six distributed <$ —
to Canadian universities by the Nat
ional Research Council, and replaces
the Gliding and Soaring Club craft
which was wrecked on its first flight
last year.
"A series of tests must be carried
out within the next year, before the
club gains clear title to the plane,"
said Carson Smith, president.
The glider is of the type used by
Hitler to train his Airforce in the
days before he dared use real planes
in defiance of the International Convention.
It ia expected the glider will be in
the air before Christmas, after a few
minor repairs, said Smith.

Scribe Has Quiz
On Long Skirts
By HAL TENNANT
Touring the campus to get a low
down on the long skirt situation isn't
exactly the safest job in the world
for a male scribe.   But I got it.
I met plenty of skirts during a
hasty circuit through the caf. Some
of them were long. Some of them
were just short, cute and blond. But
they all had plenty to say about
whether Miss Co-ed of *47-'48 ought
to freeze the knees and sneeze or
drape the shapes and stop the gapes.
WUS President Nora Clarke thinks
the present trend could do wonders
for others like herself. "My legs
aren't so good," she ventured modestly," and it's just as well to cover
them up." On the other hand, she
thinks the whole thing shouldn't be
carried to extremes, and that "those
extra three inches of skirt could be
going over to clothe Europeans."
NO CAR RIDES
Shirley Chisolm of the Alpha Omi-
cron Pi's doesn't think the long skirts
are practical, much less in Vancouver.
"They're more flattering, but have
you ever tried to get on the streetcar.
in one of those long skirts?" she
quizzed me. I admitted I hadn't. At
least not lately. And I thought by
that time that Miss Chisholm and I
had pretty well exhausted the topic.
Her campanion Mavis Plenderleith,
took the cue for a discourse on just
how long a long dress ought to be,
and just from where the measuring
should be done. "The measurement
should be taken according to the
calf," she insisted, "not from the
ground." I fought off the temptation
to reach for my tape measure, and
went on my way.
LONG FOR EVENING
Alpha Phi Mary Jane Paterson is
"crazy about em," but her sorority
sister Mary Clark believes that
dresses should be 'long for evening
wear, but not so long for day wear."
Rosemary Sayer of the Kappa Alpha
Thetas expressed a general attitude
with her comment that the new styles
are "more graceful, more elegant."
Most universal belief among the
women is that they are more alluring
with an ample portion of the game
wrapped in skirt than they are with
dimpled knees peeping from under.

Schedule Set
For Volleyball
Although a schedule has not yet
been worked out, Volleyball will be
the first intramural to get under
way this year. According to Ivor
Wynn, play will definitely start by
the end of this week.
The teams will be arranged in
leagues, comprising six teams each,
with the stronger one such as last
year's champs, Phi Delts, and runners up, the Betas in the same league.
Since the two top clubs in each loop
advance to the playoffs, even the
weaker teams get a crack at the title.
According to Wynn, who has charge
of the sport, the schedule opening,
will depend on the completion of renovations to the field house. This,
along with the gym, will be the
scene of games which promise much
in the way of excitement and enthusiasm.
Players are advised to watch the

take on an even vital importance this
year, as both sides have carried off
three out of the last six games.
Frosh, who last year gave their
morale a big boost via a 20-13 win,
are once more hoping to avenge their
numerous dunkings in the lily pond,
but the notably un-cooperative Soph
melonmasters have plans of their
own.
Both teams will be picked from
those who attended practices, which
are held Mondays and Wednesdays
in the Gymn. Notices of any additional practices will be posed in the

Neither teams have picked a manager yet, and both squads are in need

Intramural Sports Boast
Plenty Of Varicty-Wynn
Last Thursday, sports representatives from many of tha
varsity organizations congregated under the chairmanship of
Ivor Wynn to pro and con the season's intramural activities.
At the conclusion, your press' notes displayed evidence of an
extremely energetic programme.
Approximately 17 sports are beings —	
planned in the effort towards maxi
mum student participation.
Volleyball starts rolling this week,
and with the use of the three new
courts in the hangar, the time needed
to finish the schedule will be cut
down considerably. Wynn expects
that from 6 to 8 weeks will find the
question of the campus volleyball
crown settled.
Chairman Wynn announced, to the
surprised pleasure of the meeting,
that the MAD had made a grant of
$100 towards intramural activity. This
will enable the committee to make
awards to winning teams. It will also
aid in paying "officials' fees",
n This year it was decided every
organization which enters a team in
competition will be required to pay
a participation fee of $5. This covers
any number of teams in any number
of athletic activities. However, it was
also agreed that once a team had
commenced competition, it would be
required to complete the schedule.
During the fall term, tennis, volleyball, golf, touch football, will be
emphasized. Grass hockey and soccer
were also mentioned as possible additions to the intramural system.
After Christmas, the sportlight will
be focussed on basketball, table tennis,
badminton, skiing swimming, track
and field, and the roller derby. Snooker was suggested as a further field of
contest for less athletically inclined
students.
Excepting this week, the schedule
for the following week will appear in
each Friday's issue of The Ubyssey.

is ably assisted by Jim Casey, the
club has already tentatively scheduled
a tilt with the University of Washington at Washington near the end
of October.
Not to be outdone, the University of
California has extended an invitation
for the BC mittmen to visit them
in the coming year. At the present
moment, the invitation has neither
been accepted nor declined.
Whether or not the campus fighters
accept the invitation, they will at
least be suitably outfitted if the
proposed budget is OK'd by the authorities. The club hopes to have
new gloves and equipment, as well as
stocking a supply of robes suitably
emblazoned in Blue and Gold.
Workouts are daily in the Stadium
at 4:30 and all those interested should
turn out there.

plans for the current winter session.
On the agenda is a discussion of the
relative positions of the VOC with the

enroll students interested in mountaineering and recreational skiing,
while the Ski Club will handle the
purely competition skiing angle.

Rugger Squads See Action Saturday
UBC.Meets Varsity In '47 Inaugural
By HAL MURPHY
English Rugger is scheduled
to greet the season Saturday
in an all-campus game between
UBC and Varsity. Although
slightly overshadowed by their
American Football brothers,
the Blue and Gold ruggermen
are in training for another
championship campaign.
Coach Roy Haines has been busy
for a week whipping his charges
into last minute shape. Turnouts,
which at first were small, have now
swelled, and well-balanced squads
are expected in the annual race for
the Vancouver Trophy which' gets
under way this weekend. In spite
of having lost several stars to American football ranks, the campus fifteens are still favorites to repeat their
last year's feat of copping the Miller
Cup,
Welcome addition to the coaching
staff is Albert Laithwaite of the
Physical Education department. The
two coaches will share the training
of the six rugger teams which are at
present scheduled to operate this year.
As well as ♦lie two 1st division fifteens slated to meet Saturday afternoon, the campus has four other
rugger squads. In the second division
three squads, the Engineers, Sophs
and Frosh will get into action next
week. A third division squad is also
planned.
Important change in the senior set
up is that the local rugby season
has been divided Into two parts, one
before and one after Christmas.
Should one of the teams be losing up
till the holiday break they are able
to start fresh in January, Although
confident' of taking the lead after
New Years, when training is pointed
towards the games in California, local
fans are expecting a stiff battle for
city supremacy.
C-
Swimmers Primed
Fw '47 Battles
♦The future of the UBC Swimming
Club looks bright for 1947. Although
Fred Oxenburg and past president
Bob Marshall may not be back, Don
Morrison, Dick Ellis, Lou Attel, Hal
Brody, and Jim Hawthorne can be
counted on for duty, altogether with
President Bob Stangroom.
Coach Doug Whittle now has plans
underway for a home and home
series with Victoria YMCA.
A challenge will be given to all
universities in tlie Northwest Conference for meets during the course
of the year and of course the usual
feud with the College of Puget Sound
will be continued.
It is hoped that a fern swimming
team will be formed this year. It did
not materialize last year because of
insufficient turnout.
There are a number of swimmers
here from out of town who intend to
try out for the team including some
veterans from the United States.

Hockey Femmes Ready
For Banner Season
Enthusiasts are looking forward to another big year in
the world of grass hockey. The femme stick wielders, captors
last year of the Spaulding Cup, are back in full force with Ann
Munro again sparking right wing.
A  promising  group  of, freshettes, $>	
mainly   from   Magee   and   Kits   also
turned out for the first practice. The
Magee squad, last season's provincial
high champs, has sent forth a flashy
quartet in Jean Weber, Carol McKinnon, Shirl Cottman and Barbara
(BIM) Schredt. Kit's starry Ruth
Genis also caught 4he railbird's eye.
Interest in women's grass hockey is
stepping up all over the city. A new
team, Ex-Fairview, is expected to
enter the league this year along with
Varsity (with 3 teams) ExNorth Van
Ex-Kits and Britannia Grads. The
gals are enjoying split thumbs and
battered shins more and more (they
love that game!)
Practices will be held on Tuesdays

Stars Return
Intramural track will get away to
a fast start late this October when
the starter's gun will signal another
running of the Intramural crosscountry.
There were 130 entries in the popular event last year, with the Jokers,
led by Bob Piercy, carrying off the
laurels, followed by the Aggies and
Beta Theta Phi. Piercy, who went to
lead the UBC contingent to a smashing
vicory in the intercollegiate meet at
Spokane, is expected back in action
again this year along with teammates
Pat Minchin, Doug Knott, Pete de
Vooght, Gill Blair, Ken McPherson,
and Al Bain. McPherson, who incidentally may not be eligible this
year because of post graduate work,
set the existing record for the event,
covering the greulling 2.6 mile course
in 13.38 minutes in 1943.
The intramural event next month
will be over the same course as
last year, beginning and ending on the
road in front of the new hangar.
Entry is on a team basis, with a
maximum of 7 and a minimum of
S on each team, The finishing position of the first 5 men on each team
will count in determining the team's
final score.
One commendable stipulation that
has been added this year,— is that
each individual, before being granted
permission to run must pass a
thorough medical checkup and must
satisfy the track coach that ihe is
sufficiently trained to undergo the
strenuous test of endurance and
stamina.

Both Soccer
Squads Lose
By One Goal
Trouble, which always seems to
come in bunches, dogged both the
UBC and Varsity soccer squads Saturday, when both of the teams lost
by identical scores of 2-1.
In the first division, North Burnaby scored an upset win over the
Varsity men, but only after a hard
and bitter struggle.
Jim Gold, playing in the centre-
forward slot for Varsity scored the
first goal of the game on a forward-
line passing play which saw Gold
break through both Burnaby backs
seconds after the start of the second
half. Burnaby retaliated in a matter of a few minutes however, to tie
up the gaVne.
PASSING PLAY
Winning goal of the game came
after a beautiful passing play which
didn't give Varsity goalie Gil Blair
a chance.
UBC, playing South Burnaby in
the second division, also put up a
bitter battle. Murray Wiggens fired
the lone UBC tally past the enemy
goalie.
Dr. Todd, president of the Dominion Football Association officially
opened the season by taking Ihe
kick-off at the campus game.
BASEBALL FANS
GET THE "WORD"

Whoja think 'sgonna win the series.
"The Dodgers will. They will bo
the whole way. They have a lot of
drive and a lot of plain luck," was
the prediction of the mystic.
But Just as he spoke thees words,
a bold unbeliever stepped forth from
the awed group about the prophet.
He spoke clearly and said, "Wanna

Well?   What odds,
Fern Hoopsters
Out This Week
25 eager femmes turned out for the
I first girls hoop practise Thursday.
From these enthusiasts two teams,
1 to be coached by Ruth Wilson, will
be chosen to represent UBC in the
Vancouver Cagette League.
Although there are only four of
last years seniors back in the line up,
these hoopsters, Nora McDermont,
Mearnie Summers, Doreen Camp-
and Marcelle Stephens are expected
to force the basis of a fast peppy
team. Contributing experience gained
form last years intermediate squad
will be Betty Crooks, Jane Pendleton and Marion Bennett.
Promising material has also been
spotted in Yvonne French, Joan
Husband, freshette from Vernon,
Gwen Bradley of Creston, and Dolores Seymore from Kits.
Since there are still several positions to be filled on the two teams,
any girl with basketball experience
is requested to turn out to the next
practise or contact manager, Jackie
Sherman at AL. 0866 M. Practise
dates will be posted on the Gym notice board.
