 I Canadian
campus
A CUP FEATURE
Canadian Campus needs no introduction from us this week. Li
the face of overwhelming evidence
who are we to tell you that
INTERCOLLEGIATE SPORT fi
BACK!
Dalhousie University
HALIFAX, N.S.-Qf the thrc •
Dalhousie teams entered in th
Maritime English rugby-footbail
only one. thc senior team in the
city league, has so far met with
any degree of success. Both Dal-
housie's senior team in the intercollegiate league, and intermedia.a
team in the city league, fell to tho
cutting blows of Acadia's Axemen
McGill University
MONTREAL, Que.—Most outstanding result of the revival of
intercollegiate sports on the McGi.l
campus has been the great en •
thusiasm shown by all students of
all years and faculties.
A start has been made in intercollegiate football, track and tennis; with il a definite uplift in th?
spirit and morale of the players.
Enthusiasm broke out in th-3
form of an imposing array of
cheer leaders, at the football gar.vj
on October 20, but McGill voicsd
loud approval of the acrobatic girl
cheer leaders who were leadin;
the Western cheers.
Queen's University
KINGSTON, Ont.-Queens plan
to enter teams in most intercollegiate competition. Rugby is already ln full swing and we are
sending a strong track team to
Montreal on November 2. Hockey
basketball, swimming, boxing and
wrestling teams sporting the Tricolor will enter the intercollegiate-
lists. The Board of Governors will
settle these details on Novemb'.-
S. Queen's does not plan to enter
the golf and tennis tournament.'
University of Toronto
TORONTO, Ont.—Intercollegiate
sports at the University of Tor*
onto -are off to a flying start. With
two football games under its bel',
the football team takes a back
seat to the golfers who swept both
the senior and intermediate tournaments. Varsity tennis players
won the intermediate tournament
held at McMaster but their senior
brothers did not fare as well at
McGill. Track ia another specialty
with which the Vanity hopes rest.
Plans for the future include an
active participation in all intercollegiate sport. With the enarged
enrollment, athletes of better thai
average calibre are made available
to the various coaches and when
proper facilities are available, th?
University of Toronto athletic
teams will be heard from in a bi«
way. Prospects for the future are
indeed very bright.
University of Western Ontario
LONDON, Ont.—The return of
intercollegiate sport Is welcomed
at Western, where the Mustangs
are all set to repeat their 1939 victory on the rugby field. The Mustang band has made its first appearance since the war, and again
cheers on the Western team. Threj
busloads of students went down
to McGill for the McGtll-Western
game. This adds an entire new
spirit to, rugby games. Accommodation for the girls going to Mon-
real was looked after by the Mon-
real Alumnae of Western. Herj
at Western we feel that the return
of intercollegiate sport brings bad:
an aspect of college life which was
sadly missed during the war.
University of Manitoba
WINNIPEG, Man.-The University of Manitoba won last weekend's intercollegiate tennis tournament at Saskatoon.
Both boys' and gilrs' basketball
squads from the University of
' Saskatchewan and Alberta will
play at :\ two-day meet here in
January. Teams from the sain,-'
two universities will return in
February for the Swimming Gala
University of Saskatchewan
SASKATOON, Sask.-The spoil,
situation shows great increase id
inter-Varsity competion. The Ur.'•
versity of Saskatchewan has ho t
to the Manitoba and Alberta tea-
nis squads on October 20 and 23.
with Manitoba taking the championship.
Also on the 20th was the flr.-l
game of western inter- Varsity
football playoffs, when the Albert.i
team bested  the  Huskies  14-5.
University of Alberta.
EDMONTON, Alta. - Intercollegiate sport is in full swing again
at the University of Alberta a,
plans are being completed wit'i
the universities of Saskatchewan
and British Columbia for inter
collegiate football.
Fans will see their first fast fo >i-
ball in years as the teamr. fig'.'.'
for the Hardy Trophy. In addition, intercollegiate tennis, basket -
I all and other sports are scheduled  for  this  year.

Vol. XXVIII
"VANCOUVER, B.C., TUESDAY, OCTOBER 30, 1945
No. 15
• MEMBERS OF the Tumbling Club did a little showing
off Saturday too.  Pictured above is 'the little fellow on
the end' sailing through the air in a beautiful swan dive off
the spring board. Accompanied by the audience's abated
breaths and sighs of relief the club went through their snappy
routine of back-and-neck-snapping tumbling.
President Promises
Pre-Med Progress
• "I AND MY colleagues will do everything in our power
to provide facilities for as much of a medical faculty in
1946 as possible," stated President N. A. M. MacKenzie in an
address to the newly formed Pre-medical Undergraduate Society Friday noon.
"I have found no one who does
not believe that a medical feculty
should be established," said the
president.
VANCOUVER IDEAL
Dr. Mackenzie asserted that Vancouver and the lower mainland
possessed ideal conditions for the
training of prospective medicos.
"Vancouver," he said "is the second largest concentration of English speaking peoples in Canada
and is also a growing seaport. The
Vancouver General Hospital, largest in Canada, can provide the
clinical facilities necessary."
He mentioned that with the instigation of wider public health
services in the future the need for
doctors will increase, especially in
rural communities, where the need
for doctors will increase, especially in rural communities, where the
need is at present greatest. Existing medical courses provided by
other Canadian universities cannot meet this demand.
EARLY ACTION
To the question of how soon the
faculty can be established, the
president stated that the provincial government had voted $5,000,-
000 towards the expansion of the
university as a whole and of this
51,500,000 have been earmarked for
the building and equipping of a
permanent medical faculty. He entertained hopes o. early action on
this account, but warned that the
critical housing, labor and material shortages prevented immediate
construction.
"You will realize that it is on!v
fair that hemes for veterans come
first," he asserted. Because of these
difficulties Dr. Mackenzie indicated that he was prepared to give
his full support to the proposal to
inaugurate the school in temporary
quarters next fall to give at least
the first year of medicine. "The
difficulties of getting the first two
years established were much greater than for the following years,"
the president claimed.
PERSONAL INTEREST
Dr. Mackenzie said that he had
a particular personal interest in
the veterans in the faculty and
their problems, because he himself
had spent a year in medicine after
his return from the last war, before deciding upon law.
"I have some competition with
certain colored gentlemen in the
auditorium," commented Dr. Mackenzie, referring to the pep meet.
"I am surprised that any of you
are here."

At the first of the club's twice-
monthly meetings Dean Dorothy
Mawdsley was unanimously elected honorary president. A social
evening was enjoyed recently at
the president's home.
Reluctant Artsmen
Seem Camera Shy
• THE epithet of "Lackadaisical"
bestowed upon Indolent arts-
men last year seems to be fast becoming a tradition in that faculty,
according to Totem Editor Bill
Stewart. The lists of times for
appointment for Totem pictures
tacked up in the quad early last
week are as yet for the most part
unsigned.
The photographer comes out t„>
the university with the understanding that there will be at
least forty appointments made and
pictures taken during the course
of each day. If that number of
pictures is not taken, the yearbook
staff will conclude that artsmen do
not want their pictures in the
yearbook, and the photographc-
will carry on with the Science-
men's photographs.
The Totem must keep rigidly to
schedule, regardless of whether
the artsmen get their pictures in
or not, 30, if any faculty pass up
the time appointed to them by the
Totem staff, there will be no poa-
sibiliy of nlloting extra time after
the New Year.
The Commercemen, although
they will have a separate .section
in the yearbook, are expected to
get their picture taken at the same
time as arts.
IRA DILWORTH
TERMS EMILY
CARR  'GENIUS*
• TORONTO, OCTOBER 30 -
(CUP)—Ira Dllworth, speaking
in an address nt Victoria College
of the University of Toronto, described Emily Carr, west coast artist who died Inst March, as "a
great Canadian and an authentic
genius."
Considered eccentric, almost mad,
by those who saw her passing
along the streets with her pet
monkey 'Woo' In a baby buggy,
she received little or no artistic
recognition in her home city of
Victoria.
Feeling that she must have an
exhibition in thc spring of this
year she worked to within three
days of her death to complete the
mounting and framing of 37 of her
pieces. Mr. Dllworth is In Toronto
in connection with this exhibition.
Her style, though relaxed, had
always a definite pattern to it."
Mr.  Dilwoith concluded.
HOMECOMING BIGGEST
IN CAMPUS HISTORY
By JEAN MacFARLANE
• ANOTHER HOMECOMING—and Saturday once again
graduates and undergraduates joined hands across the
campus to take part in the most colorful and nostalgic affair
of the Varsity year. This homecoming was no exception to
the tradition of college spirit which is always rampant at this
time.
The stadium was crowded to
overflowing as students and alumni greeted each other and settled
down to watch Chancellor E. W.
Hamber kick off the ball at 2:30
at the beginning of a thrill-packed
English rugby game.
The crowd was definitely with
the Veterans and the field re-echoed with approval as the 'Vets'
took the lead from the Seniors
and kept it throughout the game.
The Varsity Tumbling Club gave
an  excellent  display of precision
work at half time, but it was the
little fellow on the end of the line
who really won the applause.
EXHIBITION GAME
Another display took place at
half time, this one of football 'as
it should be played," given by several membors of the famed 'Toilet
Bowl' team. The teamwork shown
in this exhibition game in such as
the 'Hidden Ball" play was, to say
the least, novel. The crowd roared
its approval,
The Mamooks, as usual, worked
hard with the cheering section. The
Jokers' novel yells were also appreciated.
After the game the Alumni gathered in the B*rock for the Alumni meeting and banquet.
POTLACH FOLLOWS
Following the banquet, a Potlatch was held in the Auditorium.
Ted Klrkpatrlck, chairman of the
committee in charge of Homecoming, in the opening address, extended a welcome from the 5000
undergraduates to the many 'grads
who were present.
Arthur Delamont and his band
played selections from the music
of Stephen Foster to set the mood
for the old-time minstrel show following. Through the combined ef.
forts of the Musical Society and
the Olee Club, the show presented
numbers which varied from 'Short-
nin' Bread' to 'Going Home,' which
were rendered by Jack Church,
Dave Holman, Burton Kurth, Gordon Wiles and the Olee Club.
Bob Nlcholls played a piano solo
of 'Old Man River' and Ted Bayles
performed a tap dance. A jazz band
completed the minstrel act.
THAT SO, MR. BONES?
The whole affair was interspersed with battles of wit between the
end men Jack Hough and Jeff
Cory and the interlocutor Gerry
Macdonald in the type of humor
which doubtless amused the audiences of the original minstrel
shows.
The Varsity Band completed the
program with a rendition of 'Dixie.'
A dance followed immediately in
the Armouries. Music was supplied by the Varsity Dance Orchestra.
And so ended for another year
the annual Homecoming Day.
Once againd grads and undergrads
had mingled the grads to renew
memories of 'Time when' and feel
a little younger, the undergrad to
realize a bit more clearly what
Varsity can mean, both to feel
closer to their Alma Mater.
Karefa-Smart
At SCM Party
By ROBIN DENTON
• DR. JOHN KAREFA-SMART,
brilliant Negro graduate of
McGill, was the life of the SCM
party held Thursday at thc Kcrris-
dale home of Bob Fraser. Also
present among the 35 members attending the Student Christian
Movement function were Sue '
Young, Chinese UBC student, and
a Japanese-Canadian soldier.
Popular Dr. Smart had everybody calling him "John" by the
party's end. He told jokes, demonstrated the Virginia reel, and sang
a song concerning the use of a
Ford V-8 as a conveyance to heaven. Shortly he is returning to
Sierra Leone in Africa to put a
health plan he devised into effect.
In June, 1939, during the visit of
the King and Queen to Washington, D.C., he dined with Their
Majesties.
The Japanese-Canadian soldier
whose name cannot be divluged, is
in Vancouver with 59 others to
study language interpretation and
liason work with the Canadian
Army. He volunteered for service
in the special corps before V-J
Day, and is attending classes at
Vancouver Tech,
FATHER CHIEF
Dr. Smart's father was one of
the head tribesmen back In Sierra
Leone, and his tribe only three
generations ago was engaged in
inter-tribal warfare. John studied
tropical disease prevention for two
years at McGill, and joined the
Canadian Army. He is now a
lieutenant.
Because he worked on a large-
scale health plan for his African
countrymen he was flown from
Canada to West Africa in a special
bomber to make an official health
survey. He has been in 38 of the
48 American states, and has also
been in London, where he visited
the London School of Tropical
Medicine.
Dr. Smart addressed SCM Thurs-
day noon in Union College chapel
on "One World or No World."
MEN'S STYLES
NO GOOD SAYS
McMASTER U
• HAMILTON, OCTOBER 30-
(CUP)-Male students of Mc-
Master University have been noticed wearing sweaters and wind-
breakers sometimes accompanied
by suitable neckwear, but more
often not, to their lectures.
Henceforth, admission to lectures
and the library will be refused
those male students who are Improperly dressed, I.e., without a
tie.
Fines will be levied on all offenders.
Study Textiles
in Reconverted Barn
•    IN A PLEASANT chintz-curtained laboratory, girls of
the Home Economics department of the University of
British Columbia are now experimenting with all phases of
fabrics and materials in a course on textiles.
Looking  at  this spacious,  wel1-
lit-room one would never think
that it was converted from
an old dairy barn and the place
where the girls now study textile
manufacturing was once the spot
where Aggie students manufactured butter.
The building was const) uckd m
1919 as a vocational .school for
veterans of the last war as a "temporary" building—now more pei-
manent than ever.
It was converted to a textile Ijd
last year and is being used for the
first time this fall. Containing all
the latest ideas on Textile testing,
it is one of the best equipped labs
on tho subject in any Canadian
university.
TALENTED GIRLS
The laboratory contains several
large and complicated machines
which the girls will learn to manipulate before the term iy. completed. Among those machines i.i
the L'uindt ■r-ometer which to.;;.-;
soaps, shrinkage and color fastrv .-:

lamp which,  .simulates .-unshiiio  to
test  color-fastness.
There are also ovens and delicate balances, microscopes, me.
chanical thread counters yarn
twist testers and other such instruments for studying the quality
of fabrics.
When chemical sinks are install
cd the girl? will also test material;;
by chemical methods.
COURSE RESTRICTED
The course is restricted to thi. i
and fourth year students, and a
knowledge of chemicals is required. Miss Stella Beil, Master
of Science from Kansas State Co!-
lego, is tho professor in charge of
the course.
The course is one> of ten offered
by the Home Economics department this year. This is also the
first ycar that a degree ef Bachelor
of Homo Economics will be offered

The Birth Of A Publication
EDITORIAL PAGE
The Publications Board is busy having a
new baby this year. The literary offspring,
which is to be christened the "Thunderbird,"
is something which has been needed, discussed, and planned, at the university for
many years, by people who felt that the rigid
news and opinion columns of the Ubyssey
and the strictly pictorial theme of the Totem
didn't afford the right medium for serious
or humorous scribblings of people who
would have enough time to meet only four
deadlines a year.
A great majority of these would-be contributors are not listed on the Publications
Board masthead as yet, and the Thunderbird editors, who are busily scanning books
on the care and feeding of literary quarterlies, have begun to realize that in order to
raise the Thunderbird to mature level they
must tap hidden wells of literary talent bub-
ling inconspiciously on the campus.
In short, a great deal of the success of the
coming publication will rest on the response
of the university reading public, and we'll
soon see if the experts are right when they
say that one person out of three dreams of
becoming a second Hemingway, Maugham,
O. Henry, or Runyan. Now all we ask is
that campus authors set about to put their
dreams to work, and although the editors
reserve their right to skim off the literay
cream and leave the rest of the contributions unpublished, we should have an interesting infant on our hands.
We're aiming at a sprightly and colorful magazine which will combine wit and
whimsy with just enough meaty writing to
put a little weight into it. It will probably
be slightly topical, but can also be salted
away as a UBC souvenier.
This is the career we have blueprinted for
our literary baby. If you have any ideas on
how we can raise it out of the diaper stage
come over and chat with us on the subject.
Laurels For Alumni
It's a great year for "firsts," and one of the
most significant will be the conferring of
honorary degrees Wednesday upon University of British Columbia graduates at the
1945 Fall Congregation.
The move is right in step with the policy of
strengthening the feeling that the university
has graduated as an educational institution.
The university, by recognizing ten of its
own graduates as citizens whose achievements compel recognition, gains recognition
proportionaly of its own educational calibre
in the eyes of the Canadian people.
We feel that this should have been done
before and hope sincerely that at least one
graduate of UBC receives a laurel wreath
from his Alma Mater at each Fall Congregations and Spring Convocations in the
future.
This will do much to offset the much-
proved maxim that a prophet, or educator,
scientist, writer, author, actor, and many
other things, is recognized in every other
country but his or her own. UBC has many
famous sons and daughters who she can
claim to have started on their respective
careers.
Street Lights Needed
As the university year begins to roll briskly on, each editor is bitten by the "one
campaign a week" hug and boosts almost
anything from meatless Friday to ten year
Science courses.
We're no exception, and this week we're
interested in street lights for the part of the
mall which fringes on the parking lot.
Students who attended the homecoming
dance in the Armoury Saturday night will
probably attest to the fact that large scale
parking on our pitch-black lot constitutes a
great hazard. It is a wonder that there have
been no minor jams between cars travelling
in an out of the area.
In the winter months, darkness creeps in
a Uttle earlier than usual, and especially this
year, when the university has launched on a
night time academic scedule there has never
been such a great necessity for shedding a
little more light on the parking area.
As more students are driving cars this
year, every possible measure should be taken
to cut down possible traffic snarls and
hazards. A lighted parking area would advance the campus safe driving cause and
we hope that something can be done, about
the situation as soon as possible.
• stresses and strains   .... by BruCe Beweii
• NOW THAT the tumult and shouting of
Homecoming has died away Junior
Member Ted Kirkpatrick can still be seen
rushing around holding hurried conferences.
Now he is promoting a university "Open
House."
Ted has made a careful study of the situation and has done most of the organizational groundwork, all he needs now is
the official green light.
For the enlightenment of those who are
not acquainted with the mechanism of a
university open house explanations are in
order. As the name implies, the university
will be "at home" to the general public. But
that is not all. The public must be subjected to an intensive advertising campaign to
make them feel that they really want to
attend and see their university at work.
Attendance at the last open .ho use, held in
1941, 'far exceeding the expectations of the
sponsoring committee. They expected 15,000
visitors as a maximum and were delighted
to play host to more than 23,000.
Thaes My Boy!
Originally organized by the engineers to
showcase their laboratories, the idea spread
rapidly to the rest of the university. It was
a case of everybody whole heartedly getting
into the act.
Although there has not been very much
added to the laboratory facilities since then,
the time has definitely arrived to play host
again. John Doe of Somewhere Inn, B. C.
endows this university heavily and has a
right to at least a yearly show for his money.
It is natural that the engineering and pure
science laboratories would probably hold
the greates fascination for the layman visitor. People love to stand and stare at
machinery, especially machinery they do not
understand. When they return home they
hasten to tell their neighbors of the "miracles" of West Point Grey and feel somewhat superior because of their new knowledge. Such advertising does much to create
goodwill for the university and is cheap at
any price.
Yea Aggie!
The aggies' prize livestock is another drawing card. When the public can see the connection between UBC and a better steak on
its dinner table a great point has been won.
Besides, everybody likes to look at well
groomed animals.
In addition to the labs and barns we could
show our visitors how Joe Blotz relaxes and
have a football game later in the afternoon,
being careful to choose suitable opponents.
The possibilities of such an afternoon are
limitless.
We're For It
It has been argued from some quarters
that such a project would take too much
preparation and also that we are too crowded
to even think of entertaining.
For such an event to be a success the students must be solidly behind it. A preliminary survey indicates that not only are the
students willing to back an open house but
they are anxious to do most of the work
themselves. The faculty would serve mainly as technical advisors. As for being crowded, what better means is there of convincing the public of our herring-like state than
to show it to them first hand?
UBC should not hide its lamp under a
bushel and sit back modestly to await discovery. If anything is being accomplished,
the public should see it; if there is not, they
are entitled to see that, too.

ALUM PAST-PREXY CLAIMS
GOVERNORS BOARD TOO OLD
• CLAIMING THAT the trend, particularly in Eastern universities, is toward older and older members for Boards
of Governors, Ted Baynes, retiring president of the alumni
association, at the annual alumni meet Saturday called foi
younger and more active men on the UBC Board of Governors and wider representation on the Senate.
"What is needed  is university       ____*___«____________
graduates, young people who know
what young people want and
need," he said.
Referring to the Senate lie said
too many faculty members hold
positions.
"There has been a tendency to
centralize and exclude the rest of
the province from Senate membership," Baynes declared.
' His stand was supported by Dr
Harry Warren, himself a membov
of faculty on the Senate. Dr. Warren pointed out that ten years ago
he led a flght for less faculty representation which was defeated.
Lt.-Col. Tom Brown, newly returned from overseas, was elected
to succeed Baynes as alum president.
The discipline and invigoration
of university life must play a larg?
part in the post war world, Dean
George F. Curtis, head of the law
faculty, told graduates at the
Homecoming banquet in the evening.
"The rest of the world looks to
the west for hope and Canadian
universities have vital work to do
in promoting Canadian leadership," D;an  Curtis said
He praised the spirit of cheerfulness and energy with which the
faculty and students of UEC were

• THE OTHER DAY a vagrant
gust of, wind stirred by a parsing professor caught my notes and
scattered them over the quad, As
I stooped to pick up my racing
form, I heard someone mention tno
word "Pub."
"Pub," 1 said, steadying myself
on a nearby freshman, "Is there
a Pub on the campus?"
"Certainly," I was told, "You
cross the road to that building,,
downstairs, turn left at the first
typewriter, hop, skip, and a jump,
and there you are."
Without further ado, I picked up
my tongue, and scampered off as
fast as my chubby little legs would
carry me. Rather than admit my
mistake to a leering editor, I sat
down and began to write.
After a diligent scrutiny of th?
past issue of The Ubyssey, I found
that    no    self-respscting    writer
would  begin  his column  without
some mention of the crowds on tne
campus. Personally I had not noticed any crowd at all, but for the
sake of accuracy I stepped outside
and counted all the students aid
staff at the university.   My calculations reveal  that there are ex
actly 43,622 persons at  this insti
tution.   Of course, Mr. Gage  wa~
moving around pretty fast and I
may have counted him twice.
For some obscure reason, 42,000
of these souls congregate at the
Caf when I go down for a cup of
coffee. Thc other day I turned to
thc fellow next to me and said,
"Quite a long lineup, eh?" 	
"What lineup?" he replied, "I'm
working on the Bridge River project."
At this point I seem to hoar
great numbers of pages of Tbj
Ubyssey being turned over, bu+
for those few hardy souls who are
still reading this column, I would
like to pass on the latest faux pas.
Some of the students are hold •
Ing lengthy conversations via
morse code, on the car horns. Now
this is great sport, and probably
excellent practice for the participants. But there are some girl 3
on the campus, one whom was
standing at my elbow, who can
also take code. And fellows, Oil
what you said .
Yesterday, while standing in the
Brock, I struck up a conversation
with one of the Greeks. During
the course of our chat, I asked the
name of the rather studious chap
in the corner, who was partially
hidden by a large pearl-studdad
gold pin.
"Oh, him," he said distasteful!.,.
"We don't talk about him; hi
once went to a lecture."
After spending a few years on
the prairies, I have really learned
to appreciate this country. Why
only the other morning I was up
at 6:00, opened my window, too'.-
a deep breath of that wonderful
fresh air, climbed in and went to
bed.
Pardon me. I just remembered
that I told a friend to keep a nose
burning in tho window for me.

Mt Palomar Telescope To Seek   • Sign Board
Answers To Cosmic Mysteries
•   WASHINGTON (UP)—War-interrupted work has been
resumed on the 200-inch telescope at Mt. Palomar, and
astronomers hope that new explorations in space may throw
light in the next few years on such vast mysteries as—
1. Whether the universe is "exploding," as some scientists believe it may be, and—
2. Whether space is infinite or whether, as Prof. Albert
Einstein thinks, it is finite and curved.  '
Man already has explored
the
universe within the limits represented by the heart of the atom—
lately unlocked over Hiroshima
and Nagasaki—and by huge galaxies of stars—whirling as far out
in space as present astronomical
instruments have been able to
probe.
With the 100-inch telescope at
Mt. Wilson, Palomar's near neighbor in Southern California, astronomers have penetrated space to a
distance of perhaps 1,000,000,000
light-years.
With the 200-Inch reflector, they
hope to extend their explorations
by another 1,000,000,000 light-years
-with what results they are scarcely able to predict.
BEYOND IMAGINATION
These are distances beyond human capacity to imagine except as
numerical expressions. A light-year
is the distance light, 'moving at
186,000 miles a second, will travel
in 365 days. The sun, radiating atomic energy 93,000,000 miles away,
is about eight light-minutes from
earth. Our nearest stellar neighbor, the star Proxima Centauri, is
4 Mi light-years away.
In addition to finding possible
clues to the soundness of the expanding universe and the finite
space theories, astronomers hope
also to add greatly with the Mt.
Palomar giant to their knowledge
of how the universe is put together.
L. B. Aldrich, director of the
Smithsonian Institution's astro-
physical observatory here, said the
200-inch telescope should supply
new information about the distant
nebulae—galaxies like our Milky
Way—as well as new data about
"the statistical arrangement of the
universe."
Disclosure that work is being resumed on the Palomar telescope,
the huge mirror glass, which
was cast long before the war, was
made by the Carnegie Institution
of Washington.
NEAJUNG COMPLETION
"It is estimated," the institution
said, "that the Instrument will be
completed within « period of from
one to two years."
Carnegie and the California Institute of Technology, which finance both the Mt. Wilson and
Mt. Palomar observatories, are now
preparing for the day when the
200-inch reflector is ready to start
its search of the skies.
A unified research program for
both observatories will be worked
out by a committee to be headed
by Dr. Edwin P. Hubble, one of the
nation's foremost students of distant nebulae. He has been on
leave of absence from Mt. Wilson
for important war research.
With the Mt. Wilson telescope
astronomers have photographed
millions of remote galaxies, each
containing multiplied billions of
stars comparable to our sun. Thus
far they have found no thinnitg
out of these galaxies which, on the
average, are scattered at a distance apart of about 1,500,000 light-
years.
A telescopic aperture twice the-
size of Mt. Wilson's, as Mt. Palomar's will be, not only should enable man to peer twice as far into
space, but astronomers say, should
reveal eight times as many galaxies if they continue to be evenly
distributed at such distances.
UNIVERSE EXPANDS
The theory that the universe ls
expanding at explosive speed arose

nebular light which indicated that
the far galaxies are receding at
velocities up to 26,000 miles a second.
Einstein arrived mathematically
at his theory of a finite space. He
believes space may be at once unlimited and finite.
If that sounds like nonsense,
think of the earth's surface you
can ramble endlessly upon it without ever coming to an end, yet the
earth's surface is finite and is unlimited only because it bends back
on itself.
Einstein believes that space, too,
bends back on itself, and that the
motion of all bodies in the sky is
explained by the cosmic necessity
they are under to accommodate
their paths to this curvature.
Many of Einstein's other theories
were subsequently verified by direct observation.
Perhaps the Mt. Palomar giant
will have something to say about
this one.
Jazz Club Hears
Modern Musicians
• MODERN JAZZ was the keynote in last Thursday's meet-
ing of the Jazz Society in the
Brock Stage Room.
Ross Stewart, treasurer of Iho
society! handled the meeting. Ha
spoke on the types of jazz recorded
since 1940. Records played were
on the Commodore, Blue Note,
and Bluebird labels.
Such artists as Eddie Condon,
Sid Catlett, Jimmie Noone, Mugg-
sy Spanier, and Jack Teagarden
were featured in the hour-long
program.
Ross Stroud, president of the
society, announced in an executive meeting last week that plan«i
were being made for the formation of a jazz band operating
through the society. These plans
are very tentative as yet, he added.
The next program will feature
Louis Armstrong records made after 1930. It will be held again in
the Brock Stage Room on Thursday noon. The records used will
be those of Armstrong made after
the days of the Hot Five and Hot
Seven groups.
Stroud also announced that after
this week's meeting only members
will be allowed to attend the sessions.

Jobs for Aggies
In Tropic Zone
• OPPORTUNITIES for British
Columbia Aggie graduates in
Central or South American countries were suggested by Roy Giles
Aggie student from Jamaica, at a
meeting of the UBC branch of tne
Agricultural Institute of Canada
Wednesday noon.
"There is a tremendous field for
scientific farmers in these countries," he claimed.
Speaking of the need of scientifically trained men to direct the
agricultural development of Central and South American countries.
Giles said from a money-makln3
point of view, those countries offered the best oportunities to a
young man.
He added, however, that an ability to get along with people would
be necessary. If they did, you
could find no better neighbors
anywhere.
The question, "what does the future hold for Aggie Grads?" was
advanced by Bob Miller, thud
year student and formerly an army
captain overseas. In answer, reports were brought in by various
men on what former graduates are
now doing, and the general scale
of remuneration received by men
in scientific agricultural work.

IT'S MY FAVORlf E HOBBY
•   TRAVELLING is my favorite hobby. Mind you I have
several other hobbies, but after one month of travelling
I'm sold on the business. From Hollywood to Vancouver to
Saskatoon is a fair stretch in any man's books.
This latest trip to the Prairies was quite a change from
the southern journey, what with bitingly brisk breezes of
40 m.p.h. and two inches of snow all over the place.
It all started last Monday when the Jokers Club gave
the grid squad a big send-off at the CNR station. There were
yells and cheers and tears. It took me back to my English
9 and Shakespeare's "Parting is such sweet . . ."
Van Vliet Wants New Gym
Remember Maury? How can we forget him? He was
down at the station to greet us when we pulled into Edmonton. He didn't say much .about his team, but we all knew
he had a pqwerhouse, and he proved it Wednesday night.
Don McClean and I dropped into the office of The Gateway, the University of Alberta's sheet. And what did we
find? We found that Van Vliet isn't wasting his time there
at Alberta. For there on the front page were the plans for
UBC's new gym. He's trying to get it for his new campus
now.
But the Thunderbird gridders didn't go for the Alberta
hospitality. The University bus didn't show up at 6 o'clock
Thursday morning to take them to the train. We held up
old "No 12" (the Saskatoon special) 20 minutes by actual
count.
Saskatoon For Hospitality
It was a different story in Saskatoon. It seemed like the
whole Husky team was there to meet the boys. Even Don
and I were welcomed by a pair of sports scribes,—Arch
MacKenzie, the sports editor of The Sheaf, and Hal Liver-
gant, Arch's predecessor.
We watched the 'Birds in their workout at Griffiths Stadium Friday afternoon, and even tried a few passes ourselves.
And the local yokels talked us into "The Lawyers' Limp" at
The Cavern that evening where we tried a few more passes.
It was a tough break to lose Saturday's tilt. The 'Birds
were the better team, and the Huskies admitted this at the
banquet which they threw for the UBC gridders that night
at the Elite Cafe. A dance at their headquarters, the former
SFTS Air Force station, wound up the Saskatoon visit.
Cleaning Off The Cuff
Leading characters on the trip were "Pop" Duncan and
"Junior" Tennant. .. "Pop" is 29 while "Junior" is not quite
18 . . . They made quite a pair . . . After the two losses,
"Junior" remarked that rugger will probably be the main
sport on the campus when they get back ... We met a pair of
nephews in Saskatoon ... No, not my nephews, but Arch
MacKenzie is a nephew of our own President . . . The other
was Bob Shore, nephew of hockey's Eddie Shore . . . Professor Hardy, donor of the Hardy Cup, gave quite a speech
at the Saskatoon banquet . . . Evidently he fears that UBC
will forsake Prairie competition and turn to the Northwestern
States . . . We received a pair of interesting telegrams while
at the Bessborough Hotel in Saskatoon ... One was from the
Jokers. Club which read :"Quit joking Luke stop send correct
score of Alberta game immediately." ... The other was meant
for big Herb Capozzi, for it said "Hear you were a hero stop
having fun stop good luck against Saskatchewan" . . . We
can't guess which girl sent it, but needless to say, Herb didn't
stop having fun.
CRICKETERS PLAY INSIDE
• WITH HEAVY RAIN and bitter winds turning the university campus into a vast green
sponge, segmented by glistening-
wet grey rivers of stone, it is
somewhat dffiicult to arouse immediate interest in a sport whose
wearing apparel is sunlight, clea-
skies, and the warmth of summer.
With the game of cricket, the
ground in winter and the climate,
both prove unsuitable to Its pursuit outdoors, and instead the gam.;
is telescoped into the conr'nes'of
the indoor cricket net. Here tho
same practice at batting and bowling can be enjoyed with the added
advantage of cutting down the delay of retrieving balls.
A little delay has been experienced by the Varsity Cricketers
in getting their nets up in the Armouries. Before these can be erected they must be repaired and
"hooked' 'so they will hang with
some semblance of shape. This
work is almost completed and in a
very .short time, it i.s presumed.
they will be hung up and ready
for use.
In surveying the really fine record of the V.C.C In Vancouver
League Cricket, no figure stan.b
out more clearly as the factor in
its achievement than Basil Robinson. Unfortunately he Is not at
Varsity this year to play for Iho
club. He will be greatly missed by
all.
Whilst in England he captained
a formidable Rritish team on th.;
Oval at Lords. And in two games
against London teams, one beint?
the London Metropolitan Police-
he scored a century each time
Coming back to Canada thi? summer he repeated these successes at
Brockton Point when he knocked
up another three centuries playing
for the Varsity team in league
games,
To come anywhere near such a
feat as this, the VCC feels, will require a lot of training and har !
work, but with so many possible
players at Varsity this year there's
no telling what may. happen. All
those interested in the game are1
reminded to get in touch with tho

highly-touted Thunderbird fifteen. Photographer Cece Yip caught this line-out throw-in at
the big annual Homecoming English rugby contest. The win placed the Veterans in a three-
way tie for first place in the local rugger loop.

VETS VANQUISH VARSITY, 11-3
•   THE VARSITY VETERANS created a three-way tie for first place in the VRU by
upsetting the Varsity Thunderbirds 11-3 in the traditional Homecoming game at Varsity
Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
It was big Lloyd Williams who was mainly responsible for the 'Birds first loss in two
years. Williams was the kicking star of the afternoon, garnering a convert and two badly
needed penalty boots. On two other occasions, he kicked the Vets out of trouble when
Varsity came within scoring distance.
With a crowd of 2000 rabid fans yelling their support, Alex Carlyle
whipped into try territory after a beautiful three-line run and a loose
scrum to send the Vets into a 3-0 lead after twenty minutes of the first
half had elapsed, Williams increased the Vets' total to 5 when he converted the try.
^N Kl^l#      I ft Varsity got into the scoring column for the first time soon after
1 JUBflS     INUVe    I W        when they were awarded a free kick from the Veterans' 35-yard line.
r Bob Croll made the kick good to make the scoreboard read 5-3. The half
ended with no further scoring.
VETS CONTROL PLAY DESPITE DEFENSE
Although the Vets controlled most of the play throughout, they
couldn't break through the 'Birds last line of defense to score any more
tries. However, due to the very erratic play of their rivals as a whole
they did manage to cash in on a couple of gift kicks with their ace
Lloyd Williams doing the honors to put the eentest away for the Veterans.
Long known for their terrific driving finish, the Thunderbirds didn't
even have this valuable asset and certainly didn't look like the team
which had romped to easy victories over UBC and Rowing Club and had
battled their way to a close win over Meralomas.
The 'Birdmen did come to life in the last ten minutes but the
Vets played cagy football and held their younger opponents till time
ran out.
Even when Varsity did start to roll, they were stopped cojd by
their sloppy display, the Vets being award enough penalty kicks to bog
down the 'Birds attack. Williams would merely take the ball and send
it on a 50-yard flight up the field into touch, thus forcing his foes to
start a new power play which didn't materialize.

TOURING TEAMS
NEED TRAINERS
TO TAKE TRIPS
After clearly outplaying the
Saskatchewan Huskies all afternoon, t'.x- stunned Thunderbirds
could only stand by and gape aj
the Ilu^y end, Steve Molnar
raced in and dribbled a loose ball,
which vers bounding about in the
'Bird backfield due to a poor snap
by Bill Macintosh, over the Thun.
derbird line for a touchdown that
gave the Saskatchewan team a 7-5
victory.
The UEC team were a far different outfit from mat which absorbed a l*-tf lacing from Alberta
last Wednesday as they tackled
hard, blocked with precision and
showed a lot of drive in the attacks. Their ground offensive was
really clicking as they reeled off
14 first downs while the defence
held the Huskies to one first down,
and that only came when th3
prairie team worked a sleeper pass.
WILSON HURT
The "Birds shifted into high gear
right from the start as Rex Wilson
and Phil Guman, between them,
reeled off two first downs from
the kick off. Then Wilson threw
a 25-yard pass to Dmitri Goloubef
to put the UBC team into scorin-j
position. But Wilson was forced
to leave the game temporarily and
the Thunderbird attack bogged
down.
However Pat Frith, who tool:
over for Wilson, clicked on th?
first play after the 'Bird* recover,
ed the ball with a 22-yard pass to
Goloubef, who gathered the ball
in with one hand and eluded th;
safety man to cross the Husky
line. Wilson was rushed in to kick
the convert but it was blocked.
SHORE BOOTS 'EM
The Saskatchewan team tool:
full advantage of the downfleld
wind in the middle two quarters
to keep the 'Birds bottled up in
their own half with long, booming
punts by Bob Shore, nephew of
hockeydom's Eddie Shore. Hw
booted two long kicks which resulted in rouges for points to make
the score 5-2 as the teams entered
the home stretch.
Then Macintosh mixed up his
plays and the alert Molnar pulled
an English Rugby dribble for the
major score. The raging Thunderbirds swarmed through to
smother the kick for convert, but
the damage was done,
• PIGSKIN PATTER - Gordy
Genge, Thunderbird guard, was
hurt on the second play of'the
game. He was kicked on the nerve
centre in his hip and will probably be out for the rest of the
season . . . Dave Duncan's supposed cracked rib turned out to be
a torn cartilage in his side and he
managed to play most of the game
using a protective covering over
the injury . . . Goloubefs touchdown catch was a thing of beauty.
He was on the dead run and leaped high in the air to snag the ball
one-handed . . . The Thunderbirds'
weak spot was the kicking. Big
Bob Shore, Husky fullback, was
gaining as much as thirty yards
on exchange of punts . . . Phil
Guman was really driving in those
line plunges . . . Rex Wilson spent
a good deal of the afternoon rushing on and off the field. No sooner
would he get an offensive under
way than he would end up at the
bottom of a pile-up and have to
be helped off the field. After a bit
of rest Coach Kabat would send
him on again the the process would
be repeated . . . Herb Capozzi played a tremendous defensive game,
a;: did all the line, and lie was
particularly effective in stopping
the Husky end runs . . . The poor
snap resulting in the winning score
came about when Bill Macintosh,
who can hit either hand at ten
yards with a snap, mixed up his
plays and threw the ball wide of
Phil Guman who was charging
forward . . . Harry Mark and Junior Tennant were really on their
toes in thc secondary pass defence
area. They both intercepted passes
and knocked several down . . .
Mark also make a couple of lovely
runbacks on punts . . . Nate Kal-
ensky used his tremendous bulk
to advantage as he played a great
defensive game on the weak side
ot the line. . . . The Saskatchewan
Huskies travel to Edmonton next
Saturday to play the second game
of their home and home series. If
they can make up nine points they
will travel to the coast. If not.
Alberta will travel to Vancouver
for a two-game scries November
7 and 10.
• THE REVIVAL of the Trainer's Club this year on the campus Is not being greeted with the
number of members that it should.
Thc purpose of the group is to
train men to handle players before
and during games by giving them
rub-downs and all the other little
things that a trainer should know
to keep his boys in shape.
Lectures will be given by Dr. L.
Ranta of the Department of Bacteriology at UBC in order that the
boys might learn some of the tricks
of the trade, if turnouts are large
enough.
Most of the teams on the campus will be travelling somewhat
during the year and of course,
every team must have a trainer
to go along with the boys. Hie

the team.

One of the outstanding Varsity
players was Audrey Thompson, inside right, who scored the team's

TOO EXPERIENCED
The Ex-Kits, being all experienced players, had the edge of
the Varsity team and out-played
them most of the time.
Commenting on the game, Coach
Black, of the Veterans Povnaellor
Department, said that the eleven
needed more practice in team cooperation to measure up to tiie

He added that better physical
efficiency would increase their
staying power, and hopes that by
the end of January the team will
