The March of Dimes
The Ubyssey
The  March of  Dimes
No. 26
Time For Some Change
We're tired of having our football teams pushed all over
Varsity Stadium.
For that matter we are tired of seeing all our university
athletes relegated to the doubtful status of 'expendables."
Ubyssey editors have sore pants from sitting on thc fence
for years on the important subject of athletic scholarships. We
are now jumping off the fence.
The move comes after serious study by the editors. In this
and succeeding editorials the whole program of university
athletics will be held up for examination.
We believe that there is a need for team sports. They build
character and leadership. If we are to have team sport, competition should be on an intercollegiate basis. There is no place
for university athletes in leagues made up for tired professionals
masquerading as amateurs.
But if UBC is to compete on an equal plane in intercollegiate sports its athletes should not be penalized. Athletes are
made, not born.
The Ubyssey 'feels that the whole ridiculous situation has
reached an illogical conclusion with the woeful attempts of
MAD to coerce university athletes into playing for UBC teams.
If we want our athletes to wear Blue and Gold they should
be given something more than second class recognition. Improved playing conditions, an enlightened faculty attitude and
financial assistance are all necessary.
This is not to say that UBC should offer fantastic inducements to athletes in order that they will shed their blood foi
us rather than old P.U.
We think there is a place for an intelligent plan to aid deserving athletes. If his marks are sufficient to justify his
attending college in the first place there is no reason why his
fees should not be paid.
This especially applies to local athletes who would readily
accept a scholarship that paid their fees at UBC along with
a chance to mak« good in their home town rather than room,
board, books and a weekly salary to play in the east or south.
Unfortunately funds for such an enterprise are not to be
found growing on thc campus maples.
In subsequent editorials The Ubyssey will outline its plan
for furthering athletics at UBC.
Engineers Set Sights On $500
For Todays March Of Dimes

Campus Two to One in Drive
UBC's community-spirited Engineers say they will raise
double the amount collected by any other faculty in today's
March of Dimes Drive. ,
They have set the objective of thc one day effort to aid the
Children's Hospital at $500.
Canvassers started at 8:30 a.m. today and will tour the campus' until
1:30 p.m. Room 210 of the old Applied

Administration Takes
Over McGill Bookstore
MONTREAL, (CUP) - As a result of protests from students, publishing houses, and The McGill Daily, campus newspaper, the McGill University bookstore will be formed as a
department of the university before the next session.
All  profits resulting  from  business*/
will  be  used  directly  for  benefit  of
McGill student body.
A managing board will be set up,
consisting of the book store manager,
student president, three faculty members and comptroller of the university.
The new university book store will
operate in opposition to several other
commercial markets.
One Montreal book dealer, who supplies student texts through two outlets said that he was not sure if he
would continue operating two stores.
"I will take time to appraise the
situation and then decide," he said.
McGill officials decided that the new
store should be operated as a university department rather than a student cooperative for two reasons.
"First," said university comptroller,
"the yearly turnover of student executives does not allow the continuity of
management which is desirable and
two, a student group is not in as good
a position to bargain with chairmen of
departments and publishers over the
texts and supplies needed,"
The new book store will carry a full
supply of texts, notebooks, paper,
technical equipment, pens and sundries. Other merchandise will be added as soon as possible.

CLU Urges Rights Bill
ite Political Nix
Representatives   of  the  country's   major   political   parties
yesterday denounced the proposed Bill of Rights for Canada
before an unsympathetic meeting of UBC branch, Civil Liberties Union. *
Despite the arguments presented by
Liberal Frank Lewis, CCFer Joe :
Lotzkar, and Tory Marshall Bray, a
spanking majority of UBC's CLU'
ionists voted in favor of the Rights
CLU proposed the discussion as a
result of the recently tabled motion by
Liberal Senator Roebuck regarding
a written Bill of Rights for Canada.
Lewis based his opposition on
the grounds that the form of our
Canadian Government makes a comprehensive bill of rights an impossibility.
Division of legislative powers between provincial and federal governments prevents the enactment of an
riding" bill, he said. Further, no
Canadian parliament can bind its
successors  by  such  legislation.
Lotzkar stated, "The rights of man
cannot be guaranteed when society
is  constantly  in  conflict."
'As long as man is nothing but a
factor of production, a bill of rights
will  be  meaningless,"  he  said.
General agreement with the stand
taken by Lewis was expressed by
Bray. He advocated the understanding
of general basic principles rather
than the '"putting up on the wall"
of a  list  of written resolutions.

Engineers were aided in the publicizing of the March of

four studenLs who have made the posters which were
posted around tho campus today.
Excited al lhe chance lo make placards for UBC, they
have produced some colorful advertisements containing
such slogans a.s "Don't Forgot the March of Dimes" and
"March of Dimes Ihe Crippled Children  Help."
Theologian Claims
Psychology Not
Replacing Religion
leads  Dime  Drive
Psychology is so far from replacing
religion that they are working together against a common enemy, Dr.
W. S. Taylor, principal of Union College said at a Student Christian Movement meeting Monday.
"Psychologists may have something
to learn from religious groups also,
just as religious men can learn from
psychologists. When I told a psychologist that I was going to be a principal
of Union College, he said "Bill, we're- :	
in a Hell of a mess, and unless we can   the last week preparing for the drive,
work together, we are sunk." Koy Cowley and Ken Johnston have

LUS Discuss
Problems Of
Students Feel
Articleship Not
Spent To Advantage
Need for a schedule of training to be drawn up for articled
law students was brought up
Monday noon at a meeting of
.he Law Undergraduate Society.
In a report submitted by the articles committee of the LUS committee, chairman Rod MacDonald stated
that the report was submitted at the
request of the Bar Association of
British  Columbia.
The consensus of opinion among
most students was that the time they
spent in articleship was not spent to
the best advantage.
The committee felt that the aci'ual
schedule was not a matter for the
LUS but a matter for the Provincial
Bar Association to pass opinion on.
The report favored a questionaire
as one method of analysing the existing method of articleship on a
purely factual basis. A motion that
the committee accept questions for
this portion of the brief was accepted
by  the student  body.
A suggestion that budding barristers
act for persons unable to afford
counsel at police court was deferred
for further discussion as it was felt
that such a policy did not come under
the jurisdiction  of  the brief.
A motion from Rod Young, 1st
year law student.', that the report be
accepted   in   principle   was  approved.
The student lawyers did not favor
the establishment of a minimum wage
scale for articled students as many
students felt that many law firms
would not be able to take articled
students if they were forced to pay
them  more  money.
Suggestions of the Moot Court
procedure were struck out of the
report as it was felt that this portion
had no direct bearing on the article-
ship  question.
Student Directory
Out in Two Weeks
The long-awaited Student Directory
will be distributed within two weeks
to students who paid 25 cents subscription charge during Registration
Week, officials of the Publications
Board   announced   Monday.
Names, addresses, and phone numbers of all students will be printed
according to information now in the
hands of the editors. No further
changes  will  be accepted.
Foresters to Have

Pulp and paper technical and economic problems will be the subject
of a series of lectures to be given as
a regular part of Forestry 475.
The lectures, seven in number,
will be delivered by executives of
the leading pulp and paper companies
of British Columbia and will be of
special interest to Forestry and Engineering students.

Critic on the Hearth      by iohn b,oekington
Tuum Est Again!
Dui"ing tho last week two student
organizations gave their debut concerts for the semester: the University
Symphony Orchestra and the Varsity
It would be useless to judge the
efforts of these students from a professional viewpoint. The concerts pro-
sun ted were not only for our enjoyment but also for the pleasure of
the student players who had prepared
iheir numbers in their free time and
given their services on a purely voluntary basis. Indeed,, the university
i.s fortunate in having students enthusiastic enough to organize and man
these organizations.
The two conductors involved, also
had to face the problem of routing
the students out to the rehearsals and
the fact that not all hc players had
reached  the same degree of compet
ence of their instruments.
Both concerts were notable for the
informal, friendly spirit in which they
were presented. Particularly impressive achievement was evident in the
performance; of the Symphony Orchestra under the intelligent direction of
third year Arts student Colin Slim.
The Band which played with great
gusto was led by Arthur Delamont.
Tonight the UBC Thunderbirds are playing a hockey game against the Nanaimo
That, in itself, is not very startling news
but those on the campus who know abottt
the present "amateur" hockey situation in
Vancouver realize that tonight's game is a
test'case and that the 'Birds will be fighting
for much more than just a victory over the
visiting Nanaimo club. They will be fighting
for the right to play their sport where and
when they choose and not according to the
dictates of certain interests in Kerrisdale.
Ever   since   the   beginning   of   the   fall
term, athletic officials on the campus have
been fighting tooth and nail against thc powers
that be around the Kerrisdale Rink, which
have been attempting to tie up that public
..".arena to the state where they will tell other
j'liockey groups in the Lower Mainland when
"'and who they can play and how much they
1 can   charge.   Such   a   monopoly   would   un-
i doubtedly result in a sizeable  revenue  for
I. certain people but at the same time strangle
'• .&• game which is striving to get a start in
j "Vancouver.
i In an attempt to consolidate this monop-
'' oly, Kerrisdale backed out of a verbal agree-
i'ment with the Thunderbirds when the students refused to meet their demands on gate
receipts and schedules. The 'Birds had already made arrangements to hire the rink
for tonight and the Monarchs thought they
could force the university to come to terms
or bc stuck with the ice and no one to play.
They failed to reckon with the resourcefulness of UBC officials however, and in a matter of hours a substitute game was arranged
with the island club.
The responsibility now lies with UBC
students. If the contest is a sell out, we can
show Kerrisdale that we do not need them
and that if they are not willing to meet us
half way, we can play our hockey elsewhere.
If the turnout is poor, the university
may lose money on it and in the future be
forced to cowtow.to the whims of outside
interests which in their efforts to discredit
the university, have publicly stated, that it
has failed to live up to its athletic commitments for the last 30 years.
UBC ha.s a good hockey team this year
and if they are to be allowed to play their
game unhindered by promotional politics, it is
time that they took a definite stand as they
have done now.
The rest lies with UBC students who
as a group have been publicly slighted on
numerous occasions by certain parties who
for selfish interests are attempting to harness
amateur hockey  in Vancouver.
By getting out tonight and making the
university's attempt at independent hockey
promotion a tremendous success, students
can give lie to statements made about them
and show anyone who is attempting to control our actions that wo indeed have a mind
and a will of our own.

American economy is left to its

On second thought, however, we

CLU's Own Little Party Line
Silver-tongued, tub-thumping, party line
hugging politico;; ol all hues of the rainbow,
road their party wagons straight inlo thc
ditch Wednesday.
Our self-made campus-brand politician.-.
joined hands in a dubious union to buck
the proposed bill of rights for Canada before
a meeting of the Civil Liberties Union.
Confident that all .students must support at
least one political party they sallied forth, all
guns blazing, and lambasted the bill for
nearly an hour.
Civil Liberties  Union  members  merely
shrugged their freedom-loving shoulders and
disdainfully voted in favor of the bill.
Tho joker in the pack, of course, i.s that
CLU has a parly line all of its own. For
years it has stormed the hustings in favor
of a bill of rights.
Wednesday, in a whimsical mood, the
union, invited representatives of the three
major parties, knowing full well the politicos
would blast the bill and knowing full well
the blasts would roll off the backs of all
(rue CLU'ers like grape shot off armor plate.
Well, at least we had fun.
In This Corner       by jim banham
For those women who have sadistic tendencies, "Easy Living," now playing in Vancouver, is a must. At the end of the picture,
he-man Victor Mature, retiring from the
football field because of an unpronounceable heart disease, smears his wife's lipstick
slaps her hard across the face several times,
then kisses her, tells her he loves her, and
thus reconciles their marriage. Congenital
idiots and sadists should like that one.
At first, tiie picture looks like it might
turn into a pretty good football yarn about
professional footballers. After the first few
scenes the show begins to degenerate into
another soap  opera  on  celluloid.
The whole thing is complicated by the
fact that Mature's wife wants to have a
career in interior decorating and enjoy thc
sleazy company of New York high life. Mature
wants her to follow him around the country
on his football junkets and enjoy thc simple
little pleasures of Chicago's Pump Room.
But Liza, his wife, played by Lizabeth
Scott, takes up with a New York no-good
who backs her Liza Inc., prouncecl in tho
picture Liza Ink, and later lets her drop wilh
a thud. Finally wil'to realizes her position
and there is the lipstick-smearing, face-slapping scene.
With the Los Angeles Rams as his leant
mates, Mature and lhe picture's producer.;

The   only   inolivation   for   chousinc    lhe
title of the film is the singing of the song,
"Easy Living," at a New York penthouse
party. It's sung by a girl who sounds like
Billy Holiday and her singing stands out a.s
one of tho better parts of the picture,

As a super-charged, sentimental reporter
who is willing to have hi.s head blown off for
a good story, Alan Ladcl, in "Chicago Dead-
lino" endeavors to discover the background
of a beautiful girl he finds dead of T.B. in a
rooming house.
Armed to the teeth with an address book
containing more phono numbers than the
Vancouver directory, reporter Ladd runs the
gamut of Chicago high and low life.
At picture's end two seemingly innocent
parlies have been murdered, Ladd has done
in the villain, and everybody, including the
audience, is in a quandry as to just what
is  going ion.
Donna Reed, who plays the part of thc
dead woman, just can't seem to rebuff a wolf
who makes a pass because, "she feels sorry
foi' them." For a girl who seems to get
around,  she  is  incredibly naive.
Miss Reed, a rather refreshing brunette,

colli blonde whom Ladd picks up al a wedding

To The Editor
I wonder if you would publish the
following letter which I received from
my friend in Europe. Joe was a very
valuable friend during my stay in
Paris as he had many connections in
the black marketing business and
gave me valuable assistance in understanding the night life of Paris.
"Dear Lucid:
I wonder if you wouldn't do something about getting me out. to Canada
a.s you promised. Things arc goink
very bad for we richniks back in
Slobovia. As a matter of fact a person
can no longer make a living there
without working. Besides that the
black marketing business here in
Paris' is getting overcrowded and a
person finds it difficult to make a
fast franc.
Remember you said that you thought
I might be able to do a job out in
Canada. Wail I am raddy. I will shout
against the Communists as loud a.s
anyone and will tell loud and lurid
tales of the horrors to which tlie
richniks are being subjected in Slobovia.   Please   hurry.
Your   Pal,
Joe Richnik."

The Legion extends its warmest
thanks and appreciation to those who
took .part in the distribution and sale
of poppies and to those who participated' in the Armistice Day Service.
Student veterans are asked to submit the names of fellow students from
UBC who are patients in the Shaughnessy Military Hospital fur the purpose of the Legion visiting them.
There are many students whose
university training grants under DV^
will be expiring before they have completed their courses and who are in
doubt or ignorance of the facts relative to an extension ot these grants.
The following information is given to
correct croneous impressions and to
be a positive guide to the uninformed.
The Veterans Rehabilitation Order in
the sections applicable to grant provides that the period of payment be
extended beyond the period of service, provided that:
(a) the student has, while on grants,
completed one academic year;
0b) in the year next preceding that
in which his period of entitlement expires, he has:
( 1) passed in all his subjects, and.
(ii) is in the top 25 percent of his
class, or has at least a second
claws average,  and,
(c) has been recommended by the
University's Scholarship Committee.
A pensioner needs only a pass standing to qualify for an extension, rather
than needing to be in the top 25 percent or needing a second class average. Subsection (b), as given above,
is the one under which nearly all
veterans whose time is running out
must qualify.

Lamp oil or kerosene, the moat valued product derived from petroleum in 1889, was often peddled from
door to door in horse-drawn tank wagons. Gasoline, a dangerous by-product, was a drug on the market for
many years. Today lhe search for new oil deposits and the search for still greater efficiency in refining
petroleum into hundreds of useful products have become the objectives of a vast petroleum industry.
Nickel steels, because of their exceptional strength and toughness, arc practically indispensable in the
machinery which drills deep into the earth. In the refineries, Nickel alloys 'have solved numerous
problems because they resist acid corrosion and stand up under terrific heat and sub-zero temperatures.
Canadian Nickel sold Abroad brings in US. Dollars
Since more than ninety per cent of the
Nickel produced in Canada is sold to the
United States and other countries, it brings
a constant flow of dollars back to Canada.
In fact, Canada's Nickel industry is one of
our chief sources of U.S. dollars so essential
at the present time to maintain our foreign
trade and make available products not
produced in this country.
These dollars help pay the wages of the
14,000 Nickel employees, and help provide
the dollars which make it possible to pay
millions in freight to Canadian railways, to
buy timber, steel, coal, machinery and supplies amounting to many millions each year.
These millions, flowing into all industries
through the length and breadth of Canada^
help create jobs for Canadians.

UBC Meet Clippers
Instead of Monarchs
* W  *v»
\       /
\ i**
Sports Editor — KAY FROST
V \
Tonight the UBC Thunderbirds hockey squad plays host
to the powerful Nanaimo Clippers in a Senior "A" contest at
Kerrisdale Arena.
This will mark the third meeting
of the Squads to date with each team
picking up one win. The Clippers took
the first one by a 6-4 margin and the
Birds retaliated with a big 6-5 win.
The game with the Hub city crew
was arranged when the Kerrisdale
Monarchaarefused t'o fulfill scheduled
engagement with the locals. The gist
of the trouble is that the Monarchs
rate their services as of more value
than the Thunderbirds and as a consequent want 60 per cent of the
team share for their- part in thc
proceedings. This is, to say the least,
unacceptable to the University, it being contrary to sound economics to
accept such a proposition.
The series of games with Nanaimo
was arranged independent of the
Monarchs but with the consent of the
Arena management. This, the third
meet'ing of the two outfits, promises
to be in the tradition established
over the last few seasons, good, clean,
hard fought hockey.
If the contest tonight attracts a
good crowd, as indeed it warrants,
it will be a mandate to the Athletic
heads to continue independent of the
Monarch interest's at least until more
favorable terms are arranged. Should
the game draw a sparse crowd it will
force the locals to play second fiddle
to the Monarchs.
For tonight's contest the locals will
ice the same squad as defeated t'he
Clippers last time out. Ken Torrance
will be in goal to gjve Don Adams'
hand a chance to properly heal. Ken
has played sensationally to date and is
a good man to have guarding the
Nelford, Hodgert, McFarlane, and
Wagner will compose the defence,
and the forward lines are intact. The
team has practiced continuously in an
attempt to be in top shape for tonight's crucial contest.
The Islanders have a smart, hustling squad lined up this year with
several newcomers bolstering last
season's B, C. champions. Their goalie,
Stu Hendry is hailed as one of the
most promising prospects to come
to the coast in several seasons.
Tickets for tonight's contest are
now on sale at the office of the
Graduate Manager and will be available in the CAF at noon. A special
student price of 50c has been obtained. Game time 8:00 p.m.

Record Holders Up Against Tough Competition
UBC Swim Championships Entice
Old Hands, Preview New Talent
Olh reliables from last year's
university swimming team will
be the ones to beat in the University Swim Championships at
8 p.m. at the Crystal Pool Saturday,  November 26.
But offering stiff competition
to the university veterans will be
a handful of newcomers, all well
known in swimming circles, but
new additions to the UBC roster.
The old standbys, Bob Thist'-e,
who holds the UBC 50 and 100
yard breaststroke records, Pete
Lusztig who claims the 50 yard
breaststroke crown, and George
Knight, lone owner of thc 50 yard
freestyle record, are sure to be
some of the top contenders Saturday.
Knight, as well as holding the
above crown, is co-holder of the
university 100 yard freestyle, and
co-holder of the E'.C. Championship 50 yard freestyle.
Backing up the old hands will
be Don Marshall, backstroke ace,
Frank Costigan, freestyle sprinter,
and Jim Hawthorne, valuable utility  man  and  diver.
The new arrivals which will give
the Varsity team an added boost
in the spring, are sure to make
things tough for the old timers
Don Thorn, starry diver, who held
his own in the summer British
Empire Games Trials, placing .second in thc 10 metre platform and
fourth in the 3 metre springboard,
will be hard to beat,
Ex- Victoria YMCA star is Don
Smyth, who i.s back in training
once again after a couple of years
Ron Neilson, another Victoria
boy who features the freestyle
sprints, wa.s a valuable member of
the campus Victoria Y team.
Tickets for the meet are on sale
in Ole Bakken's office or they
may also be bought from team
members. Price is 50 cents.
Friday wa.s one of those Rood nights
for the 'Birds as almost everyone on
the club played heads up ball.
On the scoring line, Bell with 16
and Forsyth with 15 really led the
scoring parade for the 'Birds. On defense, however, it wa.s Forsyth again,
who held tlie Chieftain's shooting
threat, Earl Spangler, almost scoreless throughout the game.
At times. Nev Munro showed signs
of the fire that marked him as a
Standout several years ago, by popping
clear shots in from the short bucket
area. As usual Munro was the big rebound man for the night with big long
And the reserve strength of the
'Birds showed quite a bit of promise.
Fast breaking Johnny Southcott got n
couple of nice ones Friday on clean
breaks down the floor, shouting with
either hand.
Willis Louie, second string guard,
looked very good both nights on defense, and after a little time with
tlie 'Birds, he might be one of the
big men offensively.
However, in the Saturday night
game against the Clover Leafs, the
'Birds did not have it all their own
Neither Forsyth nor Bell seemed
to be able to make a nickel all night.
In fact, the only ones Jawn could
get wore left handed dunk shots.
But the 'Birds were getting most of
the rebounds, that is until the last
quarter when the Clover Leafs started
iheir bid for the lead.
In that final quarter the Leafs
really turned on the steam and overtook the 'Birds a couple of times, only
to be pushed back,
But the climax of the thrill-packed
game came with 43 seconds to go
when Robertson scored, leaving losers
only 1 point behind 'Birds, 42-41.
Then with 15 seconds to go, Ronnie
Weber of thc Leafs was awarded two
free  shots.
As half the crowd stood on its head,
Weber fired both shots short of the
ling. Then after a free shot for the
'Birds that was completed, the 'Birds
won 43-41.
Chiefs Look for
Third Straight
Win on Thursday
University's Senior A Chiefs
winning two games in a row,
have their chance to make it
three straight this Thursday
when they play YMCA at the
Exhibition Gardens at 9:00 p.m.
First game of their win streak was
with New Westminster Luckies, taking the contest by a 57-51 score. Game
went into overtime, but the Chiefs
completely dominated play in the
extra session to win going away. I
Continuing their stylish brand of
play in their second game when they
tackled the highly touted Eagletime
crew, Chiefs overpowered the opposi- ,
tion to win by a 40-34 count.
