Seven Noted Personalities
Granted Honorary Degrees
Someone is needed to translate a Cambridge graduate's
"speech for local readers.
UBC Employment Bureau is searching for a Hindustani-speaking person to translate for Indian Premier Pandit
Nehru when he appears in Vancouver early in November.
Nehru himself speaks perfect English, but will be
addressing an audience in Hindustani.
This is definitely a paid job, Bureau officials state.
THE KIDDIES CRIED today as Uhcle Les Bewley, far famed
author of The Children's Hour was turned out into the stony
cold world. For almost ten years Uncle B. eluded the Chancellor's tap and amused thousands of UBC kiddies in the column's of The Ubyssey.
With An LL.B In Hand
'Uncle B' To Face
Cold, Cold World
Albert Leslie Bewley — Uncle B to the thousands of
readers he has acquired as a columnist with the Daily Ubyssey — stepped yesterday into the grim outside world with the
initials Ll. B. after his name.

courses may literally blossom
forth at UBC.
Possibility of an extensive Botanical
Garden on or near the campus i.s
being considered by university officials.
According to Dr. T. Taylor, UBC
botanist, the mild coastal climate of
lower Brii'is'h Columbia is ideal for
many varieties of plant life. More
varieties bloom all year round here
than anywhere else in Canada, he
Outdoor labs will be provided for
such courses as Landscape Architecture, Floriculture, Silviculture, Tree
and Plant Breeding, Ecology and
Entomology if the Botanical Garden
becomes a reality.
At present, UBC has a small Botanical Garden 'covering about ten
acres which contains a collection of
native and exotic trees.
It was a great occasion , for thc
bow-tied, mustached law student, because he entered his freshman year
at University back  in  1939.
Since then, he had risen to editorial
ranks with the Daily Ubyssey, joined
the navy, became a staunch Tory,
and achieved a reputation as star
Veteran pubsters remember Bewley
as the man who casually inserted a
personal ad in a downtown paper,
reading "Adventurous woman wanted
for    Machiavellian    intrigue.    Call—".
He i.s also remembered as the man
who set in motion a giant campaign
to raise a memorial to Eric Nicol, a
rival columnist. Bewley went on a
one-man stump campaign to raise the
money, shaking bottles at the entrance
to   the  Brock   and   the  Library.
Finally, one spring evening, thc
placque was unveiled in the north
end of Brock Hall, by the late Dr.
G. G. Sedgewick. It reach ''Loving
memory of Jabez, (Erie P. Nicol)
beloved campus humorist, who for
a full decade gave to his fellow men
the  priceless gift of  laughter."
The wording, at the time was quite
apt, but little freshettes are becoming
worried. The other clay two of them
were looking at the plaque and one
said, "Didn't he die young."

Four hundred and thirty-three black gowned students
paraded before their brilliantly clad Chancellor, Eric W. Hamber yesterday when he admitted them to the ranks of graduates.
Seven     Honourary     degrees     were<£	
awarded at the ceremonies, ene to an
American and six to Canadians. The
first honourary degree was awarded
to Dr. A. E. Richards, leader of tho
great Trek of 1922 staged by si'udents
when they were demonstrating to
have the university built at Point
Grey. Tlie one time president of the
Alma Mater Sociei'y is now principal
economist of the Dominion Department of Agriculture. His citation says,
in part, " . . .the Senate . . . takes
both pride and pleasure in presenting
him with i'he degree of Doctor of
Science,   honoris  causa   .  .  ."
Citation for Dr. Homer A. Thompson says that he is one of the
world's greatest living archeologists.
He was awarded the honourary degree of Doctor of Laws.
Prominent Lawyers who will receive
i'he degrees of Doctor of Laws, honoris causa, are: Frederick G. Cron-
kite, Dean of University of Saskatchewan, Edwin N. Griswold, Dean of
Harvard Law School, Vincent C. MacDonald, Dean of Dalhousie Law
School, David H. Parry, Director of
Legal Studies at the University of
London, and Cecil A. Wright, University  of Torento  Dean  of  Law.
Dean Cronkite's citation said of him
that the public life of our country has
been greatly enriched by his willingness to serve his country.
Dean Griswold, the only American
presented an honorary degree at this
congregation was honored for his
contribution to Canadian Legal education which the university is honoring.
Mr, MacDonald's wit and humor in
leaching earned his degree of Honorary Doctor of Laws.
Wording of part of Dr. Parry's citation said, " , . .this university pays
tribute to his long and enviable
record , . . and to his able handling
. . . of the onerous duties which fell
to him during thc post war years."
He was Vice Chancellor of London
University and chairman of United
Kingdom Vice Chancellor's committee.
The List honourary degree, to Dean
Cecil A. Wright was . . * Canadian
legal education owes to this penetrating scholar and stimulating teacher ... an apt  recognition."
Grads Reluctant;
Picture Proofs Pine
Majority of the grads have failed to
pick up the proofs of their pictures
for the Totem.
Picture proofs are still cluttering up
the   photo   studio   behind   the   Brock.
Unless the students concerned collect their proofs, they will have to accept the editor's choice as to which
print is published in the yearbook.
The last day for pick up is Nov-
mber 5.
Dr. Griswold Warns
Law and Justice
Must Go Together
Major problem of legal eduction today is the artificial
separation between law and
ustice, Dr. Erwin N. Griswold,
Dean of Harvard Law School,
said Wednesday in the official
address to UBC's Fall Congregation.
"We sometimes forget," he said,
"that justice is the end of our legal
education and the prime objective of
die legal  profession.
"The artificial split between justice
ss a moral idea and law in the sense
of our legal cede may leave tho law-
year in the position of arguing on
behalf of the law with no regard for
justice.. If we train our lawyers
merely to interpret thc letter of the
law we shall never progress.
"It has been said that we do not
have democracy—we are building it,
and I think this is something we
should  bear in mind  at all  times."   ,
He stressed that it is in our concept
of justice, which must cover our
social customs and our accepted standards of behavior, that wo build our
"The important thing in this difficult' building task is that we do not
tire but keep on until we are much
nearer our goal than we are at present."
Dean Griswold told the congregation that we ''must not base our
ideas of justice merely on legal precedent, interpretation of legislation
and the tasks with which lawyers
most often concern themselves. Wc
must take a broad view of the problem of building democracy, wc must
divorce ourselves from the nineteenth
century trend toward legal formalism."
Elaborating his theme he said. "Wo
must decide, if we are to clarify this
problem, what is law, what is its
function, how far should the law
student's, lhe lawyer's, and the legal
educator's consideration and evaluation go? To me it is clear that no
consideration of law is adequate which
does not extend i'o the relations of
law   to   justice.
"It is one of the achievements of
twentieth century thought that wc
have linked law and social custom
into some conception cf justice. While
wc have by no means achieved our
end, we will at least have a chance
of success in propounding a sound
concept of justice if we can continue
to bear in mind that the split between
alvv anrl justice is, really, only artificial."
NFCUS Plan Five Million

The brief calls for ten thousand
scholarships of an annual value of
$500, to cover thc minimum requirements of one year's university education.
Emphasis was placed upon scholarships,  rather  than  loans or  bursaries.
American firms were said to make
a ,10 per cent, profit on texi'-book
sales. There was muoh speculation
as to the "huge" profit made hy
Canadian   firms.
A need for pulling Canadian education "on a democratic basis" was

deelgates tore into "the piescnl system of price 'gouging' on University

Vote Yes November 4
Next week students must decide on the
question of international scholarships.
Students voted funds at the beginning of
last year for an international scholarship
scheme, and UBC chose to bring students
from the University of Hamburg. This is
where the "scholarships in democracy" slogan
came in, and where it ends now.
But the Department of External Affairs
maintained its ban on German nationals, and
so, still in the spirit of the original resolution,
UBC is now playing host to two DP students.
In the normal course of events it is supposed that UNESCO would look after them,
and so it is said that, in the aggregate, our
contribution is meaningless.
This may be true, but Canadian students
have an organization in the ISS designed to
help these students,  and  as  students  it  is
The End of An Era
The sharp realization that university
days are over came to over 400 graduates
yesterday with the oracularly pronounced
"I admit you."
For these graduates it signified not only
thc end of cooked labs, scalped essays and
extra-curricular actviities, but the virtual
end of the swollen post-war enrollment,
Almost gone are the days when UBC
was a large town on the end of Point Grey,
when meeting a friend on the campus was

fitting that we should attempt to help the
same .specialized group in another country.
Twenty-five students have been brought
to Canada by the students in Canadian universities this year, and if we do the same
next year our contribution will start to count.
We can easily afford the price of three packs
of cigarettes to do this.
Some of the students will not be able
to return to their own countries, but we hope
that this number will be small. These students can do the most good by returning
home after their education here, where they
can supply (he leadership so necessary there.
But if they do nothing but become good
citizens of Canada, that will be sufficient
to justify the money spent, for we have

was considered all in a days standing.
Students will find themselves going out
into a very different world than the one
their brother grads entered 15, ten or even
five years ago. But modern education has
probably given them a more solid basis for
coping with the complexities of modern
society than any other year.
On behalf of the undergraduates of the
university, The Ubyssey extends its congratulations to the fall graduating class of
li)49 and hopes that it meets with every
success in all future undertakings.

STAGE: Miss Dorothy Somerset,
Sidney Risk, and Cliff Robinson
form the drama nucleus of the Extension Department at UEC. All
enjoy a high theatrical reputation
in this country. Last week we discussed Miss Somerset. This week
I would like to formally introduce
Sidney Risk,
Born, brought up, and educated
in Vancouver, Sidney Risk began
his theatrical career at UBC. After
his graduation here, he professionally directed the Players Club for
two years.
The next six years were spent
in England. He studied with the Old
Vic, acted professionally, was private secretary to a movie magnate
and an attendant in the maternity
ward of a large London hospital.
Early in '39, he returned to UBC
and resumed directorate of thc
Players Club.
From 1940 to '46 he was supervisor of dramatics at the U of Alberta. In '44 he bacame that university's first professor in dramatics in their newly formed Fine
Arts Department.
Those six summers he taught
theatre at Banff School of Fine
While at Alberta, he became noted for his premier productions of
new Canadian plays. This alone
marks him as an outstanding contributor to Canadian Theatre.
But he has an even more important contribution: thc Everyman
Theatre, founded in 1946. According to Sidney Risk, Everyman
"aims to give opportunity and encouragement to young Canadian
theatre artists,   aid   at  the   same
time provide the best kind of
legitimate drama at the lowest possible prices."
Last year six thousand adults
attended Everyman productions,
few of them had ever been to a
theatre before. Their chief reaction; they came expecting just
another school concert; they went
away impressed with native
Their fir.st season, '4(!-'47, Ihis
company toured from Victoria to
Winnipeg with Wilde's 'The Importance of Being Earnest' and a new
Canadian play, Elsie Park Gowan's
"Tlie Last Caveman,'
In '47-'4S they toured B.C. Last
season they began their school
program on* a big scale, establishing Everyman in the Vancouver
headquarters and building new
audiences. This year, the same program wa.s expanded. The future:
a combination of local development
and a professional touring company.
For the last three summers, Mr.
Risk taught at UBC's summer
school of the Theatre. He has been
combining his duties as Everyman
director and as part-time instructor
in drama with the Extension Dept.
UBC students will have an opportunity to see his work this
spring. He is directing the Players
Club major production for next
RADIO: The Mutual Broadcasting system produces a day-time
serial that is so much out of the
ordinary that it deserves special
mention. It is the only soap opera
ever to win a Pcabody award.
Sandra   Michael's   radio   novel,
'Against thc Storm' is extremely
well written. It presents characters
that are so real and interesting, and
a plot line so rich and dramatic
that the usual run of soap operas
seem unusually insipid in comparison.
It plays for half an hour five
mornings i\ week. The CBC replace
the American commercial announcement with mood music, much to
their credit. Every production
seems to end either with a tribute
to thc program by a literary celebrity or a new award by some appreciative and significant group,
Eastern Canada hears this wonder
over the Dominion network every
week-day morning; but wc don't
get it here. It is undeniably unique
and worthwhile; but we don't get
it here. CBC brings us Laura Limited and Aunt Jennie each morning; they could bring us "Against
the Storm."
The CBC Wednesday Night next
week features two interesting diverse hours of radio entertainment,
from eight until ten.
The first hour features Bernard
Shaw's "Comediettina for two
voices, The Village Wooing." Lister Sinclair and his wife Alice
Mather will play the leading roles.
Shaw's treatment of the love theme
will be a refreshing: change from
the usual American distortion.
Benjamin Britten and the CBC
Opera Company are again in the
Wednesday Night spotlite. With
Peter Pears singing the tenor role,
Britten's "St. Nicolas Canata" will
receive its Canadian premiere.

If we are to believe critics, J. Arthur
Rank has done quite a good job on the film,
"Christopher Columbus". We have been
meditating on a possible Hollywood treatment
of the same topic.
The story begins wilh Columbus (Cornel
Wilde) explaining to Isabella (Maureen
OTIara) that he has a dream, a dream which
has haunted him since he was so high. The
setting is gorgeous, jewels and Goldwyn
girls all over the place and the Queen looks
gorgeous, too. She'is most sympathetic aljout
the deal, particularly a.s Columbus i.s eyeing
her in a true sailor-like manner,

Trie scene flashes to an ante-room, where
the Andrews Sisters are waiting. They are
talking excitedly.
"Its the least we could do for Cousin
Chris," says One.
"Yeah," says Two, "he was just like
a brother to us when we were poor and
dad was on relief anrl the old lady was sick
all the time."
"Gee," says Three, "I hope the Qeccn'll
do right by him. I've never seen a guy v/ho
wanted to discover America (U.S.A.) so bad."
At this moment hc of the voice appears
and beckons to them. They troup into thc
throne-room and Columbus registers obvious
amazement, Xavier Cugat's orchestra, dressed in 15lit century frilled blouses and sombreros, rattles gourds and makes wiih Ihe
accompaniment while the girls sing.
"Columbus, Columbus, we're rooting for
Columbus,   Columbus,   wc   know   you'll

A coach appears, the Queen leaps out
(she is disguised but we have an idea who
il. i.s even before she reveals her features)
She rushes up to Columbus, throws back her
hood, smiee/.es his hand while he kisses her,
wishes him Godspeed, and scrams,

Aboard ship, the situation grows tense.
At sea for two and a half months (or fourteen
minutes screen time) the crew is "waxing
mutinous under the expert coaching of Mr.
Lorre. There is a duel, when matters finally
come to a head, between Mr. Lorre and Mr,
Columbus. The latter ha.s just been dying
to show lhe fencing proficiency he gained in
proceeding films, and he wounds his opponent. Mr, Lorre will bring another tense moment later on.

In the meantime, entertainment is provided by the Andrew Sisters, who appear in
the guise of stowaways, and one of the crew
members (Keenan Wynn) who is a very
funny man indeed.
Finally land is sighted. It is a dramatic
moment, complete with off-screen music.
Columbus tries to look a.s Columbus did

looking  like  Cornel Wilde.

Sensational Defenseman
Carnered By 'Bird Icemen
Cal Oughton, sensational ice hockey defenseman who has
been sought by half a dozen professional clubs this year as well
as the amateur Kerrisdale team, will definitely play for Thunderbirds this season.
Oughton    contacted    manager    Al^— ——  ——
Theisfcen and coach Frank Fredrick
son of his intentions late Tuesday.
Cal is a product of the great Calgary Buffalo hockey organization
which last season was rated as the
greatest junior team in Alberta history.
They walked away with the tough
prairie junior loop last season, losing
in the western Canada playdowns
to the great Brandon Wheat Kings
in a tremendous seven game series.
Cal Oughton was one of the stars
of the Buffalo's, leading the league
in scoring by defencemen and placing
second in total point's. He is a great
two-way threat and will give much
strength to an already potent rearguard.
, , . definitely playing for 'Birds
The addition of Oughton will release
smart Wag Wagner for forward duty
thus strengthening the team in two
departments .
Cal comes to the squad of his own
volition, turning down several pro
offers in turn for an education.
He is known to have received offers
from Detroit Red Wings, as well as
several senior prairie teams.
Ca!, a big good-looking fellow who
is a great defender due mainly to
his anticipation and hockey sense,
is the type of player who will fit
in with the great players on the 'Bird
He is another addition in the outstanding type of player attracted to
the 'Birds. The list seems destined to
continue forever in a great new tradition.
Cal Oughton was born in Calgary
twenty ycava ago and has spent' his
entire previous life there.
Big Cal is a left defenceman and
weighs about 180, spread upon a six-
two body. He is enthusiastic about
playing with the locals, having previously played against another outstanding newcomer, Jack MacFarlane,
Things are .looking up.

"Varsity." one UBC basketball team
entered in the girls' inter A league,
suffered a 113-18 defeat to Majorettes
on Tuesday night in King Edward

outstanding UBC playei', when she
sunk one basket ns well as six out

from the string was Gill Wallinger.
one of Varsity's keenest basketeers.
They managed to Hold their opponents down in the first quarter, but
fast-moving Majorettes pulled ahead
for a 33-18 win.
This is the second win that Majorettes have made over UBC teams since
the league started last week. Thunderettes lost the opening league struggle a week ago yesterday in the same

Schedule Change
Forces Puckmen
To Play Friday
'Birds Unprepared
For Early Start
Last minute switch in the
Thunderbird hockey schedule,
catching the unprepared university team orf guard, forces
them to play their season opener in Nanaimo tomorrow night.
Original plans called for the locals
to make their season debut on November 5.
The local squad will go into this fray
with very little practice under their
belts. The team will practice tonight
at the Forum at 6 p.m.
This will be but their fourth practice, very little when compared with
the Clippers who practice dail% and
have' played eight games already this
Too much is not expected in this
initial contest but the boys will be in
there trying and will give the Clippers a game even if it is in the Nanaimo  Civic matchbox.
The starting line-up is still in doubt
and will likely be selected tonight.
Don Adams is almost certain to
start in goal. He is undoubtedly the
best goalie in the league and will be
a big factor in the showing of the
Whipped Cardinals
'Birds Aim To Upset
Badger Win Streak
Twenty-Five Back Field hAen Lead
Pacific Lutheran Attack
Unbeaten Pacific University football eleven, with an impressive list of high-class talent on their roster, will try to
keep their streak of good fortune intact when they line up
against UBC's fast improving Thunderbirds in the Stadium
Saturday at 2:15 p.m.
Five games without a loss Is the<$>
ecord set so far this season by the
powerful Badgers.
Opening their football year against
Pacific Lutheran, Badgers, still not
loo sure of themselves, came out with
i 20-20 tie.
From then on, they won their next
Jour statrs. Western Washington succumbed to the Badger attack by a
score of 33-13. Old P.U. trounced
Linfield 25-0, outlated Whitman 33-27,
and last Saturday duped Chico State
Coached by Dr. Paul Stagg, son of
Alonzo Stagg, the grand old man of
football, who is now in his third year
as head football coach for Pacific,
the team has developed a fine system
of play and Stagg has done much in
developing his boys into hard ballplayers.
Backfield men come at a premium
in Pacific University, with no less
than 25 backs listed in the team of
only 54 players.
With this small army of runners and
blockers leading the attack, Pacific
can hardly go wrong.
In the line, 29 men are allotted to
hold up the forward wall. Five letter-
men tacklers help keep the line working against their opposition.
Only possible weak spot in the
forward wall is in the end slots,
a fact which may result in their
downfall. If UBC features their sweeping 'round end plays as rhey have
so successfully so far (his year, Pacific may find themselves with one loss
on  their books.
But the bulk of the line is solid.
Captain Bob Magette and Dan Rollins
have held down starting roles for
the last two years in the tackle spot,
but two more lettermen, Jim Hudson
Grass Hockeyists
After Second Win
UBC's men's grass hockey
team, fresh from their win over
the faculty Cardinals last Saturday will be looking for their
second win of the season this
weekend when they meet Indians at university Saturday at
2:30 p.m.
Downtown Indians crew have identical records with UBC, both having
garnered one win and suffered one
Last week's game with the Cardinals, which UBC took by a 2-0 score,
showed up some of the new talent
that has come to the team.
Rick Van Rooy and Keith Murroeg,
the former having learned his hockey
in Holland while Keith is a promising
and Lyle Brown, back them up.
Reserve force consists of a couple
of hard-hitting Junior Varsity prospects.
Taking the spotlight from the rest
of the 25 backs is Senior Stan Russell,
who received honorable mention as
Little All-American and All Northwest Conference halfback.
Russell is the triple threat sensation
of the Badgers, handling much of the
passing assignments for the club, as
well as taking the ball for ground
Sophomore Jim Sunderland alternates with Russell while at right half
position Marv Buntin, two letterman,
will probably have the starting role.
Badgers feature the "winged T"
formation which combines all the
advantages of both the single wing

'Birds-Grads Battle
For H
oop Honours
Alums Henderson, Osborne, Nicol
Return to Defeot 'Birds Again
'Birdmen Out to Stop Oldtimers
From Taking Honours Again
Feature sports fixture in this year's Homecoming program
will be the classic Bird-Grad basketball game to be played on
the UBC maples Saturday night.
According to all reports the twelves-
men   currently   turning   out   at   the
Thunderbird hoop workouts will be
stripped this weekend as will two or
three additional men to be brought
up from the Chiefs.
The manner of play will be about
the same as in past years, with the
first half being devoted to letting the
crowd see the actions of some of« the
Alum greats of the past.
The second half will treat the fans
to a preview of things to come as the
'JJirds clash with the strong, recently
graduated portion of the Grad squad,
A rapid glance at the Grad roster
which reputedly will include the
names of some 28 basketball alumni,
shows some interesting stars of years
gone vby.
Returning grads from as far back
as the top team of 1925 will show men
like Dal Grauer and Arnold Henderson. Sixteen year-old "rookie" of the
1931 championship club, Bob "Tony"
Osborne, will also be in strip.
Incidentally, Bob was out a few
nights ago and he really looked good,
believe it or not.
Btack from the 1937 group will be
Jimmy Bardsley and Hunk Henderson, as well as Rann Mathison and
Eddie Armstrong.
Of more recent vintage will be men
like Ron Weber, Harry Franklin,
Sandy Robertson, and the "man with
the globe trotter style," star for UBC
and the great old Victoria Dominoes,
Ritchie Nicol.
Also hanging around the old maples
this Saturday night will be well
remembered names like that of Jimmy
McLean, the boy that smiles while
he plays, and also lanky Bob Haas,
stellar bucketman from not too many
years ago.
At any rate, if numbers count for
basketball courts with a triumphant
anything, the Grads will sweep the
trouncing of the 'Birds.
