Housing of married student veterans will be the chief
interest of the UBC branch of the Legion during the coming
year, stated Grant Livingstone, branch president, in an appeal
to freshmen veterans assembled in the auditorium Tuesday.
Following President N.A.M. Mac-
Kenzie's speech of welcome, Livingstone outlined the activities,
purpose and projects of the Legion
to the Frosh audience, the greater
part of which were veterans.
Livingstone's address touched on
the highlights of laat year's Legion
activities—the organization of the
UBC Branch of the Legion, the
sponsoring of entertainment, the
establishment of a permanent employment bureau and the campaign
to Increase veteran grants. Ihe extra grants were turned down, but
the campaign resulted ln a loan
scheme which well aid many returned students.
Stating that the university veterans were the most privileged and
generously treated of all persons
under the rehabiliation program,
Livingstone went on to say that
for this reason, they owe a dual
responsibility—to other vets not so
fortunate and to the country.
He stressed the fact that the
Legion is not a partisan organization and that its purpose is not
to keep veterans seperate citizens,
but to make them better citizens.
He appealed for support of the
Legion in its effort to preserve the
spirit of comradship and unity in
service developed during the war
A full program of entertainment
and social work is also included
in this year's plan of activities.
Campus URS came up to bat
with a new emergency service.
One of the new students waa
needed to give his father a
llfesavlng blood transfusion.
No other detail was available than his name. However,
URS with no waste motion
rigged an extension to their
ampllfing system and shot out
all available "gen".
The man was on his way to
the Oeneral Hospital within
10 minutes of the call hitting
the Campus.
This tlmesavlng was essential
as the father was bleeding to
death.  Good work URS.

with children are being assigned
this week to S3 suites in 11 eon-
verted army huts on Lulu Island,
Dr. G. M. Shrum, in charge of
itudent-vet housing announced
A number of the suites are already occupied, and prospective
tenants were inspecting others yesterday. All will probably be taken
by the end of the week.
Situated 100 yards from the iii
terurban line on No. 2 Road, the
huts have been redecorated inside
but  are  unfurnished.  Suites rent
frcm |25 to $35 a month.
One of the huts contains a community kitchen and laundry. Most
suites include two bedrooms, a
living room  and  bathroom.
In general, Dr. Shrum's office
pointed out, priority for roome 1*
bcsed on the number of children
a family has, and the seriousness
of its housing need. UBC branch
of the Legion decides priorities.
For single students, veterans or
others, the Extension Department
housing bureau has lists of housekeeping rooms ond boarding-
houses. The bureau is in HL8.
Maftenne Points
STUDENTS AT universities at
the resent time have special responsibilities because of their special opportunities said Dr. N. A.
M. MacKenzie in his welcoming
address to the freshmen on Tuesday noon.
"We can say without boasting
that we have a group of Instructors here as good as any other In
Canada. You should make good
use of them," Dr. MacKenzie con- '
Advising non-veterans to get ac-
quainted with those who have seen
service, the resident stated veterans have been a pleasure to work
with because of their enthusiasm,
application, general experience and
"Attendance at university gives
more than just training. The students must gather a philosophy of
living and an attitude towards life
that will make them sufficient to
cope with any circumstances which
may arise."
Students should plan to take
advantage of every opportunity that Is ottered to them
while they are In university,
advised Dr. MacKenzie.
"I think I can safely say that
the time you spend at university
will be one of the happiest of your
lives. You have untold opportunities for forming lasting friendships and for leading a wide and
varied existence. Take advantage
of everything."
The university has done all that
it can, but not all it would like
to do to make college life full and
profitable, the president went on.
By utilizing every opportunity,  the students  should not
only   serve  aa   good   undergraduates, but as worthwhile
citizens when  they graduate,
he told the freshmen.
Because   of   its   graduates,   the
University   of   British   Columbia
stands in the front rank of Canadian,  and  even  North   American
"The good name of the university is in your hands," the
president said. Your future, and
thus, indirectly, the future of the
university is in your own handd!
We—the faculty of BC—are here
to serve you. You are all res-
onsible men and women. It's up
to you. What you do and what
you become."
The world offers unlimited opportunities, Dr. MacKenzie conic! uded. However, it is foolish to
expect it to be a peaceful, quiet,
easygoing sort of a place.
"Unless we can solye the
problem of living together
without recourse to vlrlence,
to wars and revolution, then
science has given us the means
by which we can destroy ourselves. Intelligent men and
women are needed. And the
university can supply them."

The book exchange, Anally settled on the second floor of Brock
Hall, northeast corner, will be
open daily from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m.
Making this announcement yesterday, Managers Tibby Russell

ORDER CARDS for this year's
Student Directory will go on sale

Tickets, to cost twenty-five cents,
will be sold at those two places
during the next few days. Later,
when the Directory Lt published
towards the end of October,
those tickets may be exchanged
for copies of the book.
This plan, similar to that useu
in the sale of the 1947 Totens
has been adopted to ensure an
efficient distribution of the available Directories this year.
When the Directory, is Issued,

rectory will contain the names,
addresses, and phone numbers of
more than 8500 students.
Library Grows
To Double Size
EXPANSION OF the Ubrary to
two and one half times its present
size will be undertaken this winter
The building contains seven
tiered steel stacks, only four of
which are now in use. With the
addition all seven stacks can be
utilized thus eliminating to somo
extent the present crowded conditions.
Stack shelves will be completely
rearranged. All departments except Dr. Lamb's office and the reference Desk will be moved.
Completion of the Library addition Ls expected in about one year.

Waiver Campaign
Nets Gym $4500
FIGURES JUST releaed by the
Bursar's office show that an amount
of $453465 was added to the
Memorial Gym fund from last
spring's caution money waiver
It's estimated that about 1500
students signed the waiver forms,
thus turning over to the fund what
remained of their caution money
after deductions for lab breakages
and library fines.
Because only non-DVA students
were allowed to sign away the
money it's believed that about
75% of the amount available was
turned over to the Memorial Gym

On The Wagon . ■.
. . .with DON STAINSBY
When Fall comes to Point Grey
each year several thousand young
Canadians struggle out through
many barriers (including street
cars) to take up their books and
to absorb some learning.
Numbered among the thousands
are about two thousand freshmen.
Admittedly these Frosh are green,
but a little time and patience will
do wonders.
Also   numbered   among   these
thousands are about fifty (hardly
'more) Engineers who seem to think
that it is their special mission on
Earth to "initiate" the tender green
shoots that will be future Seniors.
And, among the two thousand
freshmen are fifty who, for some
strange reason, think that Engineers have no business with the
And there the {rouble starts.
No Rhyme or No Reason
Things start popping at 12 noon
on the first day of lectures. Things
keep popping for two or three
days thereafter. If it were not
that the Ubyssey thinks these
fights are some what news-worthy
and that lt runs a picture of some
portion of the hundred participants
it is very doubtful if anyone on
the campus save the hundred
themselves would ever know much
about brawls.
Why, oh why, do these hundred
specimens of old-time Joe College
think it necessary to turn the
spotlight upon themselves every
year? What do they accomplish?
Or, rather, what do they think
they accomplish?
Clothes are torn, wallets are lost,
pens, combs, pipes and various
other paraphernalia are either destroyed or lost. All this, without
mentioning the possible physical
harm that can be brought about
by these asinine encounters.

They might realize many things.
They might realize that when
the fights and dunklngs occur
around the lily pond in front of
the library, one of the university's
, prise landmarks — that carefully
tiaredwfot hedge—is badly damaged
and might be destroyed.
They mljht realize that it will
not help the new Gym any if
someone was injured. 'TOown-

the moronic goings-on and might
decide that UBC students are too
far gone to be worth the $500,000

Wouldn't It?
" Legionettes "
This ls the first edition of a regular weekly column In the Ubyssey
dedicated to the task of keeping Leglonalres and other campus vets In

This column does not purport -to be Man's
Best Friend, Dorothy Dix, or the Pocket
Guide to Freshman Behaviour, but it can
not help but be generous with that one
commodity not effected by war-time shortages: advice. And so from our safe little
corner on the editorial page, we should
like to give any freshmen who managed to
survive registration a few tips on university
There are always, unfortunately, a few
very worldly and wise upperclassmen about;
when they learn you are a freshman, they
wax blase and shoot horrible lines about
"not opening a book all year". Don't you
believe it. Sponge brains and photographic
memories are rare. Most of us have to study
to get through.
Beware the other extreme, too. There
are no plots to "wash out half the freshmen,
to keep the university from getting overloaded." Any average type who does a
reasonable amount of work can make the
A common story circulated is that the
professors don't mark your papers individually; "they just stand at the top of a flight
of steps, and toss them all down, giving the
highest grades to the ones going farthest,"
for these presumably are the "weighties".
That's a lot of rot, too, as any prof who sits
up nights marking the damned things will
Bach year's crop of freshmen seems to

The whole attitude is a balloon that ought

year or two sooner. So if some upperclass-

say, who is this rambunctious freshman?"
technique on you, just ignore him. The
paddy wagon will probably be along in a
minute, anyhow.
You'll have lots of gripes, of course, but
think twice before you let them see daylight.
There'll be long queues at the bus-stop, cafeteria, book store, and powder room. But
don't let it worry you. We had seven thousand students last year, and we got along
If you're an ex-serviceman here for the
first time, you'll find plenty of your buddies
around. Join the UBC branch of the Canadian Legion and Grant Livingstone will try
to get you a raise in allowance. But aside
from that, and your monthly trip to DVA to
get your cheque, you'll have more fun if you
soft-pedal the "vet" stuff. Decorations don't
look good on civvy clothes, anyway.
Varsity life is one of the nicest things that
can happen to a fellow, and we're sure you'll
enjoy it. There'll be football games, dances,
pep-meets, parties, shows, and plays. Whatever you do, den't miss the annual Players'
Club and Musical Society presentation;
there are no better on the west coast.
When you get time, incidentally, do a little
studying, preferably when its assigned. It
generally takes three years to find out that
the work is easier if you keep up with it,
but now you know the secret.
Above all, feel lucky that you're at UBC,
because there's no better university anywhere. And if you're looking for an easy

where are all the bits of waxed
paper, and all the paper bags being filed? Most of us desire to
keep the lawns and walls clean,
but we can hardly be expected
to carry waste paper around in
our pockets, as I did to-day.
Can you not use you influence
to have waste baskets spread
about the campus? Our lawns
and pool are much more desirable
in their native state.

years, freshman hazing has again
come back into its own.
Groups of students, consisting
mostly of Engineers, making up for
lost years, began promptly at noon
on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, to punish freshmen disregarding the first year regulations.
Punishments took the form of
dunklngs, depantlng, and general
On Monday hazing got off U.
a alow start, although it picked up
somewhat later on.
A casualty count after the first
hour listed 11 tint year students
dunked and 1 depanted, against
five upper year men dunked.
On Tuesday fighting was quite
heavy, with reinforced freshmen
taking the offensive and inflicting
heavy casualties on the Science-
men. Preliminary casualties lists
show that 11 Sciencemen were
dunked as against only 5 freshmen.
During the same period many
freshettes were punished for In*
fraction1 of the law. WOOF's roamed the campus In small compact
groups meting out punishment to
any wayward freshette. Although
their punishment did not constat
of dunking, many were daubed
with green lipstick, and others
were made to sing for the spectators.
In spite of the fierceness of the
baaing soiencmen have been adhering to the Versailles Treaty on
the treatment of freshmen.
Before any dunklngs watches,
spectacles and wallets were carefully removed.
On Wednesday the campus was
shocked to hear of the disappearance of the engineers. However
the raving mob of red shirts was
replaced by a marauding band ol

THE INTRAMURAL setup at UBC got off to a great
start Monday afternoon in Bob Osborne's office in the confines of Ihe Gym. After a two-hour bull session, the skeleton
intramural committee succeeded in working out various
problems in connection with the program for the coming
It was decided that all teams wishing to enter must turn
in a list of 25 names by the 1st of October. Forms for this
purpose may be picked up any time at the Physical Ed. office
in the Gym. This list is just a starter, to indicate to the
committee how many clubs are intending to participate in
the intramural schedule. Full lists, which must include
all the members of the organization eligible for intramural
participation must be in by Nov. 15. If any club wishes
to add-more members to its playing roster, they can do so
by obtaining the consent of the intramural committee.
Various points pertaining to scoring, bonuses, and extra
points were decided. Entry points of 50 will be given to
every team entering any event. Penalties for defaults will
be deducted from these entry points. If a team defaults one
game 50% of their entry points will be deducted, if they
default more than one game they lose all their entry points. .
Bonuses will be given to the winning teams in playoffs
between leagues. If the playoff is a team event, the champions will receive a bonus of 20 points, but if it is an individual event the winner will receive 10 points.
All the sports will be divided into major and minor
events. These categories do not necessarily indicate the
relative importance of the sports to the University, but take
into consideration the amount of training necessary, and the
number of participants. The points alloted for the winning
teams differ in the two categories. A winner in a major event
receives 100 points. A winner of a minor event receives
75 points.
The events which will be run off in the fall session will
include cross country, touch football, tennis, golf and volleyball. Included in the major events will be touch football,
cross country, and volleyball. The minor category includes
tennis and golf. Soccer and grass hockey will also be played
as major events this season. These sports have not been
played intramurally before, and it is hoped that they will be
The committee is also considering entering the Jokers'
roller skating meet in the intramural program. This event

Cricket Teams To Stage
Exhibition Match On Saturday
AS A CLIMA7 to a fine season, Varsity's two cricket
teams meet in an exhibition game on Saturday at the Brockton Point Oval. The two teams have been playing steadily
all summer against the City teams and have made a very
good showing.
The strengthening of the nine City teams with returning
service men has brought the standard of cricket to a par
that is comparable with any other league in Canada today.
The Blue and Gold had a team in each of the two divis-
ons and although neither team finished on top of their
section, real promise was shown for the future. It was mostly
a matter of experience that knocked the Varsity squads from
the top rung. Next year should tell a different story-
In the Senior Division, Varsity
"A" finished second only to the
Rowing Club squad. Pete Hobson
and Art Hill shared the glory as
bats and Art Griffen was the most
consistent bowler.
The team's fielding was easily
the best In the league baling finished and snappy throughout each
game. Notable in this respect wa*
the work of captain Les Bullen,
Ned Larson, and Ron Williams.
The Varsity «B" squad started
out with a bang, winning six out
of their first seven games. Although their winning streak was
short lived, the "B" boys ended
up in second place in the Lower
Mainland series.
Although they fell to third place
inn the Gardner Johnston tilts,
the team was impressive through-
out the eason.
Dave Pudney, team skipper,
took batting honours with an
average of 23. Best bowling average was chalked up by Charlie
Pillar who took 47 wickets for 439
runs, an average of nine.
As in the "A" team, fielding was
particularly good. These boys ex-
pct a much better year when the
season rolls around again.
In Aid of the Gymnasium Drive,
the clubs played two exhibition
Games on May 24 at Brockton Point
The 'A" team won their tilt a-
gainst a representative team from
the City while the "B" squad lost
a close match to another Rep team.
Half a dozen of Varsity's co-eds
.ook up a collection and a large
lonation was received,
All in all, both clubs have had
> good season but they figure tha.

the honours as they did in '44.

Coupled with the recent an.

has been alloted to the outdoor
club for the coming winter season.
This cabin, one of the first on
Grouse, is situated at the foot of
thc big hill and will allow the
UBC skiers to get up in the morning at noon and still have time to
get in a couple of hours skiing.
(In past years many so-called
skiers never even got up to the
snow level).
Although much needed work is
being undertaken by willing club
members owing to the faulty foundations and superstructure, the
pressing needs for larger accomodations have justified the club in
seeking a newer and larger club
Another handy feature about the
location of the new cabin is the
accesibility to ski grounds.   From
the back door drops the 900 vertical feet Nose-dive run.   And beside the cabin is the trail over to

Frosh Hoopers
To Meet Sophs
VARSITY'S 1946 battle of the
annual Frosh-Soph Basketball war
tentlvely scheduled for noop on
Wednesday, October 3, shold cause
all hoop fans to bulge the want,
of the gym as In days of yore. And
if the law of averages haa anything to do with dt, the freshmen
should manage to come out on
the top this year.
Last fall the second year men
worked overtime to snag a nip-
and-tuck fracua from the freshies
by a scant 31-30 margin, thus
avenging the 22-15 Frosh victory
of the previous year. In the fait
of '43, it was Sophmorea, 18-12,
once again alternating from the
freshmen's 19-18 triumph of '42.
Thus this year's newcomers,
with 'Birdman Ritchie Nichol hold
ing the coaching reins, are looking
for the pendulum to swing back
again in their favor.
But with such notables as Lennie Letham, Dal Towne and Dave
Campbell as possible candidates
for the sophmore roster, the second-year boys will have some
pretty healthy arguments against
its being their turn to lose.

I specifically went to see how to tie sports in with
comedy, but there was one scene which stole the show, as far
as I was concerned. It was the one where Danny's milkwagon
horse, Agnes, falls flat on the pavement.
Memories) Memories! !
The milkwagon mount stirred many memories of happy
days at the Hastings track for some reason . . . probably
because the nags there do everything but fall flat from
pregnancy (as was the case in the film, for those who haven't
seen it yet).
Deep in my race track reverie there is one incident which
sticks out sharper than any other,'for it seemed particularly
humorous to me at the time.
It all happened one very hot Saturday afternoon at little
Saratoga—that's what the local sports scribes call Hastings.
There was Bookie Bob and Harry the Horse and Hot-tip
Henry, and they were all excited as hell even though the
first race hadn't started.
Was Ashes Only Hot?
I tell you this Ashes Only is hot as a firecracker, Bookie
Bob was saying.
But Hot-tip Henry didn't seem to agree- That glue-pot
prospect couldn't run even if they built a fire under her, says
he.   I like this Brown Earth.
But at this point, the heated argument is stopped by some
character who joins their select group.
Harry the Horse suddenly turns to the stranger and
questions him: Say, don't tell me you had to pick Wallace
Kelk's selections again today. Is he still sick? What a bunch
of nap: Jazz Lady, Franklin D., Brilliant Help, Streamline
Early Day, and . . . hey, look fellas, he picks Ashe* Only
in the last race!
The newcomer nods and brushes him off, and besides,
the first race is just coming off.
The Stranger Was In There
Six races have gone by the board and we find the same
select group more excited than ever.
Bookie Bob is screaming to the guy who made the
selections. Four winners you pick, and two seconds but you
don't bet.   You should have your head examined.
And so should we, Hot-tip Henry is yelling. Leave us
all go cover this Ashes Only. It looks hotter than ever, now,
and the odds are ten-to-one.
Moving to the straight wicket in a body, they all plunge
their small fortunes on No. 4, which of course is Ashes Only.
You guessed it. Ashes Only runs a torrid last, trailing
the field by a smart seven lenthgs.
And so, dear kiddies, the moral is . . .
Incidently, I hate to boast about things like this, but the
guy who made the selections was me.
