UBC IN SPOKANE CROSS-COUNTRY
Varsity Entered In Northwest
College Cross-Country Race
In Spokane On November 23
VOL. XXV
VANCOUVER, B.C., FRIDAY, OCTOBER 23,1042
No. 9
a* THE BIGGEST sports story of.the year to hit the campus broke last Wednesday, when
Athletic Director M. L. Van Vliet announced that this University has permission to send
a team to a mammoth Cross-Country Meet to be held in Spokane in late November. The
story, by the way, is a scoop' for the UBYSSEY, as the story was released to us first enabling us to beat the downtown papers with the the news.
Govt. May Curtail
Non-War Courses
•   THE GOVERNMENT is expected to announce soon the
curtailment of college courses which are of no direct benefit to the war.   Announcement of this action will be given
within a few weeks or at least before Christmas.
Under present Government regulations, students wishing to change
their course must obtain the approval of university officials and
the district officer commanding.
It ia expected that it would be
quite eaacy for an arts student to
change to applied science but that
the opposite would be quite difficult Failure in any set of examinations would subject a college
man to military service.
WRIGHT SPEAKS
In a speech to the alumni ef
Queen's University, Kingston,
Austin Wright, assistant director
of National Selective Service gave
a hint of tho action that the Government would probably follow.
He said: "It might be that physically fit young men will be allowed to enter the University only
on condition that they take such
courses that will fit them to become technical officers in the armed forces or key specialists in war
industry."
This announcement appeared in
the Vancouver News-Herald a few
days ago.
McDonald
Law Society
Horie Prexy
• DAVE LAWSON, president of the University
Law Society, announced yesterday that the Honourable
Chief Justice D. A. McDonald, Chief Justice of the
Court of Appeals of British
Columbia, has accepted the
position of Honorary President of the Law Society of
the University 0. British
Columbia.
When asked to take the office
Chief Justice McDonald said: "I
accept the position with all my
heart. The members of the Law
Society may be assured that I will
stand behind them all the way!"
During the summer the Law So-*
ciety lost two of its supporters to
Ottawa, Mr. R. Q. Tupper and Mr.
W. J. Brocklebank.
The first meeting of the Society
will be held sometime in the next
few weeks, stated Dave Housser,
business manager.
Jim Macdonald, young Vancouver lawyer and graduate of UBC,
will be the Society's first speaker
of the year. He will talk to the
Society about the type and kind
of work done by law students and
young lawyers. Chief Justice Macdonald will be able to give under-
grads. an idea of what is expected
of them In the future and how
they can best equip themselves for
their profession.

Helene Morton Thrilled;
Impressed By Ovation
•    HELENE MORTON, eminent Canadian soprano, who appeared in Student Pass concert in the Auditorium on

Miss Morton sang twelve selections; "Alma Mia," by Handel, "Gia
II Sol de Gange," two arias from
the marriage of Figaro; three
French songs, "L'Invitation Au
Voyage," "L' Enfant Prodigue,"
and the Hindu Song chant. The
last group which she sang were
English melodies,—"Do Not Go
My Love," "Love's Philosophy,"
"The  aMrket  iLve," and familiar
."None But the Lonely Heart," bv
^Tsehaikovsky.
ICH
Students' were impressed by the
richness of Miss Morton's voice,
and the complete reality her vivid
facial expressions and dramatic
ability  lent to each selection.
The guest singer graciously acknowledged the audience's applause by stating that it was the
most enthusiastic group she had
ever sung before.
Miss Morton and her accompanist, Miss Phyllis Shuldt travel .directly to Regina, where they will
appear at a recital.

"In The Mist" are Philip Carter,
Jean Christie, Sandra Gordon,
Jean Clark and Jim Wilson.
Prepping For Cross-Country
• THIS SCENE was taken during the running of last
season's cross-country jaunt. Similar scenes can be noticed
around the campus these days in preparation for the second
running of the annual classic, and now with the added incentive of a trip to Spokane the boys will be out training
in earnest.
Varsity Band Heads
Today's Pep-Meet
•   STUDENTS will entertain themselves at the Pep Meet
on Friday noon, with the aid of 500 song sheets specially
printed for the Mammooks.
Featured on the sheets will be
all the Varsity songs with a new
verse inserted In 'My Girl's a Hullabaloo.' The Alma Mater Hymn
will be revived.
Bob Wilson will be MC-lng, not
Monty Montador, as previously
announced. Supporting him will
be a bevy of six beautiful cheerleaders, with Eileen McKillop as
acting yell-queen. The Varsity
Band will provide the musical
background, including the Sky
Rocket set to music.
Purpose of the Pep Meet is to
ensure a cheer Section at the American football game on Saturday
afternoon, when the Varsity team
will meet Vancouver College.
The team will receive its first
formal introduction to the students
at the pep-meet. Although there
will probably not be any cheerleaders at Saturday's game, Bill
Stewart, Varsity yell-king, stated
there will be lots out at Homecoming.
Twelve or thirteen girls now belong to Mamooks, and after Christmas the best cheerleaders among
them will probably be organized
into two teams and a yell-queen
will be elected.

Grad Hoode May Be
Returned, Refund
Money From Fee
• THE ATTENTION of those
taking degrees at the Autumn
Congregation is called to the fact
that any one who does not wish
to retuin his hood may return it
in good condition to the Bursar,
within two weeks after Congregation, and receive a refund of $2.50
on his graduation fee.
Women may rent mortar-boards
for the sum of twenty-five cents.
A deposit of 13.00 will be required.
If the mortar board is returned in
good condition within two weeks
after Congregation there will be a
refund of $2.75.
In brief, the plan is this. The
Spokane Athletic Round Table, recent sponsors of "Bundles for
Congress," "The National Publics
Championship," "The Western
Amateur Golf Championship," "The
National Football Coaches Moaning Contest," etc., etc., has decided
to sponsor a coast-long Cross-
Country Meet. Races will be provided for High School boys, College Freshmen, College Varsity
and AAU races which will be open
to all comers, and in which Military and Naval Units will be invited to enter teams. The Varsity
and AAU races will be at four
miles, and the Freshmen race will
be three miles. First class prizes
and trophies will be provided in
all races. The Round Table is willing to pay for the gas and oil of
all College teams that will travel
by auto. They will also pay hotel
and food bills incurred by all visiting teams.
VARIOUS COLLEGES INVITED
Mike Ryan, track coach and
trainer of the University of Idaho,
is contacting the track coaches of
the various universities and colleges and inviting them to bring
teams to Spokane for the Freshmen, Varsity and AAU races. He
is doing this on behalf of the
"Round Table" in his capacity as
a member of that body.
The prime purpose of this Spokane Cross-Country is not merely
the prestige of staging another big
Sports Extravaganza. The Round
Table is staging the race in the
interests of National Physical Fitness. Believing "that this is
everyone's war,," and that the
greatest possible number should be
activated, the Bound Table deoMed
that this could bast be accomplished through the medium of crosscountry running and competition."
The cross-country race is the
Round Table's way of stimulating
"the interest of the rank and file
of the young men of the Pacific
Coast in this Important matter
(Physical Fitness)."
FOR PHYSICAL FITNESS
It is only in the interests of
Physical Fitness that the University ls sending a team to Spokane.
There is a minute that states that
there will be no athletic events interfering with military or athletic
training. In the case of the Spokane meet the University or COTC
will send a team, as the race is directly in line with the Physical
Fitness phase of the War effort.
In a meeting held last Monday,
October 19, the committee on Athletic and Military Affairs under
the direction of President Klinck
formally gave permission for a
team to be sent. The committee
acted on Colonel Q. M. Shrum's advice in this matter. Colonel
Shrum felt that the responsibility
of a trip to Spokane would stimulate the interest of the men on the
campus and result in a large number of them turning out and training for the UBC Cross-Country
race.
The committee was reminded
that cross-country plays a large
part in the toughening-up program
of the army. At Gordon Head,
soldiers run from two to seven
miles with full equipment.
OPEN TO ALL
As a result of all these doings,
L. L. Van Vliet announced Thursday morning, that the Intra-Mural
Cross-Country race will be thrown
open to the entire male population
of the University. It will also be
moved ahead a week to Thursday.
Nov. 13. Entries for the race must
be in to Mr. Van Vliet on Friday,
Nov. 6. Mr. Van Vliet further an*
nounced that the team going to
Spokane will be made up of the
first fifteen men finishing thf UBC
cross-country race. He said that
the team would probably travel as
a Varsity team, although it was
possible that lt would go under
the COTC banner.
BEGIN TRAINING
M. L. Van Vliet urges most
strongly that A%L men on the
campus immediately begin training
for our cross-country'race. With
permission received for a team to
travel to Spokane, it is up to the
students to prove that the committee acted wisely in giving its par-
mission by turning out en masse
for the race. The course is LI
miles long. If any student does
not know the actual route, ho can
run this equivalent by circling tho
stadium track ten and one-half
times. A cut will be published in
the next issue of tho Ubyssey
showing the actual route of tho
course. —
VARSITY ENTERS
Mr. Van Vliet wired Joseph AIM,
president of tho Spokane Bound
Table expressing his wish to enter
a team for tho race and asking for
further details. When those details are known, tho Ubyasay will
publish them.
The text of tho letter which Mr.
Van Vliet received from Mike
Ryan asking him to send a team to
Spokane is printed on Page 4.

Clean-Up Campaign
Planned For UBC..
• AN EXTENSIVE clean-up
campaign will be launched immediately after the Homecoming,
and although details are not as yet
worked out they are expected to
follow the same plan as in former
years.
The long arm of the Discipline
Committee will grasp offenders by
the scruffs of their necks* shako
them severely and return them
minus their passes. Harsh punishment is rumored to be in store
for two or three time offenders.
With the present shortage of
tires it is of extreme importance
that bottles are net broken on tho
road. This, also, is an offence under the Defense of Canada regulations.
Miss Morton Charms
Reporter From Ubyssey
By BY-LINE HAMMITT
•   MISS HELENE MORTON is one of the most completely
poised and charming personalities I have ever met.
Lunching with Miss Morton in the Brock after her recital
for students Wednesday noon, I was struck by her vivacity,
her spontaneity and the absolute lack of affectation which
has characterized so many of the celebrities who have visited
the University.
Backstage after her concert, Miss ■
Morton was thrilled at the ovation
given her by her first student audience. "I feel like hugging
everyone!" she exclaimed, and proceeded to start in on Bill Mercer,
president of LSE, which thoroughly delighted said Mr. Mercer.
This Is the tint time Miss Morton has ever appeared for a Vancouver audience, and felt that her
special trip out to sing for the
students was well worth it.
The enthusiastic applause of the
students made a great impression
on her; she wished, however, that
she might have had a better selection of songs in her program,
songs with which the students
would have been more familiar.
At lunch she chatted anlmately
with the other guests, Mrs. Phyllis
Shuldt, her accompanist, Owen
Telfer,  Prof. Louis MacKay,  and
Bill Mercer, about student affaire.
Miss Morton was very interested
in the various groups and clubs on
the campus, especially the Musical Society and Players' Club, and
was much impressed with their
choice ot presentations in former
years.
She also said she thought the
"UBYSSEY' was wonderful. "Its
much larger than the usual college paper," she said. "You must
have to work awfully hard."
On being told about the Totem,
she asked if she might see one,
and looked interestedly through
it  when it  was brought to her.
Altogether, I found Miss Morton a delightful person to talk to,
and I hope that the next time she
comes to Vancouver I will again
have the opportunity to renew our
all-too-short acqaintance. Page Two
THE   UBYSSEY
Friday, October 23, 1942
•    From The Editor's Pen » » »
War Aid Council
, "An ambulance for Christmas," the campaign slogan of the War Aid Council for the
fall term, represents the most ambitious program of the student body to date.
After a successful first year which was
more or less of an experiment, the War Aid
body has now got some practical experience
behind them and plus the advantage of an
earlier start there seems to be no reason why
they should not reach their objective by the
time the Christmas season rolls around. If
the response is anything like last year's it
should be a cinch.
The tentative plans for the council call
for a concentrated drive with the one objective, rather than a series o£ small drives,
for various funds. This will include the
money taken in at self-denial days, mixers,
carnivals and all other functions which have
been held in the past to raise funds for war
work.
The UBYSSEY has emphasized the fact
that the War Aid Council has been constructed so that as many students as possible
would be represented on the Council and
that as many as possible would be given
some role to play in the raising of funds.
In last year's "Mile of Pennies" drive,
which lasted a week, almost all the major
organizations on the campus turned out their
members to aid in the collecting, it was put
over with a bang because so many students
were in on it. That is the way it should be
with all functions which are held this year.
Anyone who feels that they have some
good ideas for raising money or to improve
some of the campaigns, is requested to leave
their suggestions with any member of the
War Aid Council or to drop them in at the
Publication office. —AWS
Faculty Forum
Immediately below the editorial columns today one of last year's features will
make its 1942-43 debut.
Last year the UBYSSEY introduced the
"Faculty Forum" with the intention of
giving to the readers a column which would
express ideas and views on problems confronting the world at large. It was felt
that we should call on the members of the
faculty to make these contributions, because
they are specialists in their various fields and
as such are more competent to handle a column of thjs type.
These are days when serious thinking
about the world to come is vital. The peace
which came after the last war was lost when
• cynical world lost interest and faith in the
principles upon which the world was to be
reconstructed. It can happen after this war,
too, unless the peoples of the United Nations are willing to put out the effort to plan
and work for better conditions. Admittedly
we must win first, and everything must be
converted to that end, but we must be ready
to lay out the terms of peace and the program of reconstruction when the time comes.
The UBYSSEY is primarily a campus
newspaper, published in the interests of the
student body and with the intention of covering campus life. We feel, however, that a
column such as the Faculty Forum has a
very definite place. We feel, too, that the
"Letters to Editor" column of the paper
should be open to letters of a serious nature,
and we will welcome any comment of reasonable length which any student wishes
to contribute to the editor.
We would like to take this opportunity
to thank all the professors who have already
made contributions in the past, it is only
with their co-operation that this column can
be continued. —AWS
Faculty Forum
By A. F. B. CLARK
Some yean ago Mussolini replied as
follows to an 'American correspondent who
had approached him with having deprived
the Italians of their.liberty (meaning their
freedom of speech, their participation In
government): "Every day I receive hundreds
ef letters from all parts of Italy, from the
countryside, from villages, from small
towns, from large cities. The writers of
these letters all want more of nearly everything. Some want more roads, some want
more bridges, some want more schools. I
never receive any letters asking for more
liberty."
Thus did Mussolini express his doubt
whether the average Italian—or for that matter the average man anywhere — cared a
hoot about political abstractions like liberty.
The average man, Mussolini seems to say, is
interested in the material problems of his
immediate daily life, and is only too glad
to leave ideological matters to politicians and
dictators.
When I consider the apathy I see about
me regarding the great social and political
problems that will beset us at the close of
the war, I am tempted to wonder whether
Mussolini was not right after all in his cynical denial of the average man's political capacity. Write a letter to the newspapers
about whether the peace treaty should be
one of vengeance or reconciliation, about
whether an international government should
be set up after the war, about possible
changes in the economic system, about the
independence of India, about the future relations between the white and colored races,
even about the problems of the French-
Canadians, which lies right on our own
doorstep. You will at best start a languid
discussion, and at worst meet a thunderous
silence. But write a letter about the chlori-
nation of our water or the injustice of sugar-*
rationing and there will be a stampede to the
ink well. But the most shocking situation
is found right here in the University, where
the hardest thinking ought to be going on.
Accept an invitation to speak on "War Problems" before the Social Problems Club and
you will face an audience of fifteen students;
raise the question of whether the "Frosh
Reception" should be held down town or in
Brock Hall and the concentration of student
intellects on this mighty problem fills the
UBYSSEY to the brim. People seem ready
to give their money, their bodies, their lives
to the war—but not their minds.
Timid souls say: "But there is such
'dynamite' in these questions." That is the
very reason why they should not be left in
the hands of people who do not know how
to handle dynamite.
Make no mistake. Unless the average
citizen, under the guidance of educated
leaders, throws off this lethargy and makes
up his own mind what ought to be done to
patch up this broken world, the peace-treaty
will be made by the same crowd of horse-
trading and log-rolling politicians and diplomats that made the last one and will only
pave the way for World War III.
Do you, the students, the youth of today,
want another rotten peace to be made? It
is you and your children who will suffer
from it. I remember hearing a student of
UBC say twenty years ago: "Oh, just wait
until our generation takes hold of things and
then you'll see!" Well, I don't know whether
it ever took hold, but we've certainly seen.
Polyannish optimism like that, which doesn't
realize the need of knowledge and hard
thinking, does no good. The hard facts of
this world must be grappled with and bent
like steel. Who is to do it but the educated
youth of our universities? Or do you want
to deserve Mussolini's sneer?   Tuum est.

By DINAH REID
e FRATERNITIES and sororities have always been, on this
campus at least, objects of dislike
and criticism, much of which, in
my opinion is undue and definitely
biased. At this time of year, with
fraternity pledging completed and
sorority rushing almost over, let
me offer my two cents worth In
their defense.
But first I would admit that
when I first came to UBC I had
no intention of joining one of the
Greek letter societies, as they are
referred to in downtown papers.
Fresh and beaming, I arrived on
the campus from high school and,
terribly confused and bewildered I
tried to become accustomed to all
the queer conventions which seem
so inconsequential to fresnmen but
which make university hie unique.
It all seemed rather silly to me
then, as it did to those who arrived on the campus last September.     .
• THINGS LIKE innocent freshettes sitting at fraternity tables
and not realizing the cause of all
the hilarity was of their own making. Like that habit of skipping
8:30's to sit in the Caf and drink
the usual morning cup of coffee. Like playing bridge 'in the
Brock in the middle of the day.
Like adopting the nicknames applied to professors and gradually
conquering our awe ot them—
most of them anyway.
All these customs are simply
VARSITY. Without them, and all
the others like them, it would be
just the same as high scnool on a
larger scale. And sororities and
frats add to the atmosphere too,
but I didn't realise it at first. To
mo they were glorified clube,
charging heavy dues and demanding too much of their members for
all they received from thsm. The
only advantage to joining a soror-
lty ,that I could see was that one
could always bo sure of somewhere to eat lunch. Now even
tho lunch seats are disappearing.
However, I followed tho herd
and was rushed and got my bid
and waa duly initiated into one of
tho sororities. I have never once
regretted that aot and to be utterly
mercenary about the whole business^ I feel that I have received
more than my money's worth.
• BUT YOU CANT measure the
good that a Greek fraternity
does in so many dollars and cents.
You can't measure tho advantages
it offers to you by debits and
credits.
Now, in war time, with so many
friends leaving Varsity for the
services or war jobs, a sorority
gives a certain sense of security.
Further, a sorority will not only
widen your Interests culturally
and scholastlcally, but it will also
widen that clique of three or four
friends of first year to include
many.
O SO FAR, this little treatise
has dealt with the what-the-frat-
ernlty - does • for - the - Individual
question. How can the fraternity
serve the University? You need
only to look at the student governing bodies on the campus to see
that they co-operate with the faculty and with each olther completely. Petty. quarrels are forgotten.
For an example, the Red Cross
Ball, suggested and organized by
Pan-Hellenic and Inter-Fraternity
Council in the first place, has contributed the largest lump sum to
the University Red Cross Fund of
any money-raising scheme.
The Dirty Nine is composed of
five, shortly six, Greeks to three
non-Greeks. That fact in itself is
sufficient evidence to absolve the
argument that fraternities are so
wrapped up In their own activities that they forget they are also
members of the University of
British Columbia.
t IT IRKS ME to hear people
criticize Greek Letter Societies
when they are ignorant of the actual good they do on the campus.
Each one has cut down on all unnecessary expenditures and each
one has some kind of project to
assist in the war effort in some
way.
Some of the criticisms made have
been logical and constructive, and
it is only to be hoped that these
are recognised and acted upon
when they would contribute to the
betterment of the university.

BeCe Service
By MARION MACDONALD
• A FEW YEARS AGO,
Massett, on the rainswept
Queen Charlotte Islands, was
inhabited by a poverty-
stricken group of about
three or four hundred whites
and Indians, slaving day
and night -to scrape together
a bare subsistence from their
fisheries.
One day a mysterious, friendly
visitor began to talk to them, inducing them to form a fisherman's
co-operative. He pointed out the
labour and time saving that could
result if they would all pull together and pool their resources.
Dubious, but ready to try anything, these Indians and whites
looked around for a co-operative
project They decided between
them to work a large clam beach
.several miles from the settlement.
In one season, these few fishermen dug over 11,000 cases of clams,
a crop retailing over $55,000. The
diggers alone, earning one dollar
a oase, made over 111,000 for themselves in one aeasonl
Massett is no longer a struggling
little down-ln-the-heel village.
Her citizens have suddenly gained
a self-confident pride in themselves and their work and their
co-op.
MIRACLE
A seaming miracle,—yet how
many students realize that tWa Is
only one of the many miracles
wrought every day In the lives
of out-of-the-way B.C. oitiaens by
' the Extension Department of their
own university.
Two flights above the caf, burled
la a hum of constant activity, the
Department of Extension remains
a sort ot mystery to nearly every
student throughout his four undergraduate years. Yet they serve,
by mall, as many people in re-
mots parts ot B.C. aa there are stu-
deals ea the university campus.
Phonograph records to a little
Sunday School group in the Caribou, study courses in child psychology to mothers in the Lower
Peace River, film slides to Young
Peoples in the Okanagan, bulletins on navigation to fishermen,—
over 3,000 people, miles from a Library or Movie receive small
glimpses of the outside world
through the UBC Extension Department.

o   JOYCE HARPER and Evelyn Cox file Extension Department films.
CoL O. M. Shrum, head of the department, has worked tirelessly to
build lt up. .."Originally, tho ex-
extension lectures wore our main
work," he told the UBYSSEY last
week, on one ot those rare attar-
noons when ha was not too immersed in work to give an interview. "Bat sines the In treses ia

prafasssei to spare tho tfane for
lecture toursr-e* we have tried
to think ot a Mabstttttte."
They have thought of dozens,—
Study Oroup Courses, tho Phonographic Loan Service, Visual Instruction, Co-operative Movements,
Theatre Services in Rural Areas,
Summer Radio Script-writing
Courses, the Extension Library,—
these form only the briefest outline of the many 'branches of the
department.
"Our mailing work alone keeps
half a dozen girls busy all the
time," said Col. Shrum. "Last
year, we sent out nearly 8,000 mo
tion picture films,—besides the
thousands, of books and records."
STUDY GROUP COURSES
He described the study group
courses, designed to substitute the
lectures, which are sent out to
groups of three to lt people who
like to meet regularly to discuss
some topic of special interest to
them.
Each week, illustrated material
for two lectures Is sent to the
group who read one in advance
for the next meeting, and come
ready to discuss the suggested
subtopics, and to answer the prepared questions. The lectures for
the different weeks are printed on
different colored paper, "so that
they all know exactly which page
they are supposed to be looking
at, as they strain their eyes in a
dimly lit little community hall,
around the old wood stove," added
Col. Shrum.
The girls in the office compete
among themselves In drawing the
illustrations, and' the courses
themselves are usually prepared by

1,000 FILMS
Besides the study courses, which
served over 70 small groups
throughout B.C. this year, there is
the Visual Instruction Branch of
the department. Last year, 5,928
motion picture reels were sent out,
and over 1,700 film slides. Like
lantern slides, but printed on a
small rolled film, the film slides
are a wonderful improvement
over the cumbersome lantern
slides, and can be operated on a
tiny projector, which may be borrowed by the group for the year.
The films themselves can be sent
through the mail for three cents,
compared to the fifty or more for
the old heavy slides.
BOOKS POST PAID
The Extension Library is a godsend to book lovers miles from a
Library or store. Each member
receives a catalogue and can
choose seven books at a time,
which are sent to him, post paid,
immediately. To return them, he
just wraps them up, pastes on a
special sticker, and sends them off
without a cent postage. "Only
live, interesting books that are
constantly in demand are kept on
our list," said Col. Shrum, "We
can't afford to keep dull books
that no one wants to read on our
catalogue."
OVERSEAS COURSES
"All University Extension courses
are non-credit courses," continued
Col. Shrum. "This avoids all that
friction with the Dean's office that
might result if there were constant argument aa to whether a
certain extension course was the
equivalent of a certain UBC
course.
"There is a great demand from
students overseas that correspondence courses be given, carrying
university credits, however," he
added. "So in the future wo may
have to work out some scheme to
fill this demand."
Chairman ot the Canadian Legion Educational Service tor B.C.
and Asherta, CoL Shrum doss cooperate with tho Legion in prevM-
up to Junior Metric, and he tests
the! there Is a reel need for uni •
ventty equivalents.
THEATRE SERVICE
As a part of tho Extension Library, mere is a separate library
of 5006 plays and books on the
Theatre, which are kept constantly circulating among rural dramatic groups, by the Theatre Services,
under Miss Dorothy Somerset. Untiring in her enthusiasm, Miss
Somerset goes on tour severs)
times a year, taking classes in acting, helping with make-up, hearing* rehearsals, or just giving lectures on the technique of th«
drama, to the many "Little Theatres" throughout B.C.
FISHERMEN'S CO-OPS
GRANT DOUBLED
"Perhaps the most Important
work, to the province as a whole,
is our co-operation with the Fishermen," said Col. Shrum, as he
described the success of the Massett fishermen. "From a motley
group of haphazard workers, they
have been banded into self-sufficient, confident Industry, with a
faith and pride in the future. We
give them training in business
method and credit union bookkeeping. They take better care of the
fish now, too, because they realize that it belongs to themselves,
not a retailer in the city."
So important does the government consider the work, that the
Federal grant has been doubled
this year, despite the expenses ot
the war. Mr. Arthur Wlrlck has
a full time job, going up and down
the coast, visiting, advising, and
encouraging the fishermen's coops,
NATIONAL FILM BOARD
"Another interesting experiment with films is also being carried on just now," said Col.
Shrum. "In co-operation with
the National Film Board, we have
four motion picture projectors out
full time touring the rural areas
where there are no movies, showing twenty-five tunes in school
and rural community halls. At
present, the circuits are touring
Vancouver Island, the Okanagan,
tho Kootenays, and one is being
organized to cover the area between Prince Rupert and Prince
George. Each circuit serves about
200 children and 2,000 adults every
week. It takes a month for each
circuit to complete Its program.
War films, educational films, and
the 'Canada Carries On' series are
shown in hundreds of* small
towns."

Cross-Country Invitation
EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the letter that Mr. M. L.
Van VUet received the other day containing the Invitation to
participate in the gigantic cross country race in Spokane the
hitter part of November.
*.Y1'*&ftyfi.j!'ij0->l>
University of Idaho
.^..,AS^^r Moscow, Idaho,
October 8, 1942.
Mr. Maury Van Vliet, «
University of British Columbia,
Vancouver, B. C,
Dear Coach,
The Athletic Round Table of Spokane, Washington,
recent sponsors of such nationally important events as:
"Bundles for Congress", "The National Public Links Golf
Championship", "The.Western Amateur Golf Championship",
"The National Football Coaches Moaning Contest", etc., etc..
has entered the Athletic Arena again to sponsor a worthwhile
project.
This time the Spokane organization has turned to track.
It plans to stage a gigantic cross country racing program in
one of the city parks or on a golf coifrse.
In the belief that a lot is being said about Physical
Fitness these days as part of our preparation for war and
nothing much is. being done about it, the Athletic Round,
Table felt that it was their patriotic duty to provide a way
to stimulate the interest of the rank and file of the young
men of the Pacific Coast in this important matter.
Believing also, this is everyone's war, and that the
greatest possible number should be activated, the Round
Table decided that this could best* be accomplished through
the medium of cross country running and competition. In
this sport the number of participants is unlimited. All they
need for facilities are the fields and roads of the open country
or the city streets or paths in the parks. Their equipment
is the simplest and cheapest that can be procured.
With the hope that hundreds of boys and young men
will get in training, races will be provided for High School
Boys, College Freshmen, College Varsity, and AAU races
which will be open to all comers and which Military and
Naval units will be invited to enter teams.
I am a member of the Round Table Committee and
have been asked to contact the Track Coaches of the various
Universities and colleges and invite them to bring teams to
Spokane for the Freshmen, Varsity, and AAU races. The
Round Table will be glad to pay hotel and food bills incurred
by all visiting teams while they are in Spokane and will
pay for the gas 'and oil of all college teams that will travel
by auto.
The Varsity and AAU races will be four miles and the
Freshman race will be three miles. First clay prizes and
trophies will be provided in all races. ,
The Round Table in providing this program is certainly
creating a golden opportunity for the Collegiate Track
Coaches and Athletes on the Pacific Coast and I hope a large
number will take advantage of it.
I am positive that the Round Table will be glad to
make this an annual affair if the Colleges and Universities
will show their interest by entering teams this year. With
the prestige and financial backing of the organization this
can be developed into the largest and best meet of its kind
in the United States.
University of Idaho will be represented by teams in
the Freshmen, Varsity and AAU races. I certainly hope you
can arrange to enter in one or more of the races.
Hoping to see you and your boys on Monday, November 23? or Wednesday, November 25?, I am*,
Very cordially yours,
MICHAEL J. RYAN,
Track Coach and Trainer.

Lined Up
•   "THE BADMINTON CLUB this year, is to be the best,
and the most interesting on the campus, with an enlarged
program, and a more active participation," Allan Carlyle,
president of the club announced.
In order to substantiate this claim ■
Carlyle outlined the new program
in this manner. A new executive
has been chosen, consisting of
Allan Carlyle, president; Pai
Craig, vice-president; Mary Alice
'Wood, secretary-treasurer; and
Phil. Aahmore, team manager.
These four people have made plans
which will lead to tho best season
the club has ever enjoyed.
LADDER SYSTEM
Phil. Ashmore has devised a ladder system of playing tor the
whole club, whereby each member
has his name on a scale, and any
player can challenge one above him
to a game, and if he wins the
match, the two names are interchanged. Thus, the best players
will rise to the top, and the league
team will be chosen from them. A
"B" team is also a possibility.
But the activities are not to be
restricted to sports alone. Social
functions will be held every other
Saturday night, alternating with
the mixers, for the club hss the
use of the Oym on Monday,
Thursday and Saturday nights this
year. These functions will be informal in nature. Arrangements for them are to be made by
the girls, and the cost of them to be
borne by the boys. Pat Craig will
be in charge of these functions.
VISITORS ALLOWED
Arrangements arc being completed whereby it will be possible
for members to bring visitors to
the club on Saturday night, for a
very reasonable and nominal fee,
not likely to exceed twentyvfive
cents. Allan Carlyle urges all
those who are interested to turn
out one night soon. Fees are four
dollars for the year, or two dollars for the first term, and two-
fifty for the second sessiom

Coach of the new entry will be
Demetrie Elefthery, no stranger in

nine men on his present lineup and
hopes to swell this number in

FARINA WORKING HARD
Johnny Farina, Varsity's football
maniac, has been really working
hard this year to develop a team
which will uphold the traditions
of the former football teams.
For the past three weeks, Farina
has been drilling the boys four
nights a week. On' Monday's and
Wednesday's, the gang is engaged
in knocking each others teeth out;
on Thursday, drill practice; and
on Friday, chalk-talk.
DAMN GOOD
When Farina was asked as to
what his opinion of the calibre of
the team was, he replied, "The
team is damn good." This from
the Coach means that Vancouver
College will definitely have some
surprises in store for them on Saturday.
In many cases Coach Farina has
had to take raw recruits in order
to get the material and the weight
he wanted. From former coaching
positions, in particular the Kitsilano High School squad, which was
coached to two championships in
succession, we see that we have
the best in this respect.
BOEINGS AT HOMECOMING
It has also been rumored from
unimpeachable sources that tiie
Thunderbirds are going to play the
Boeing team during Homecoming
Week. This particular game has
been disputed in every issue for
the past two weeks, so let's see
what happens this time.
Here is the tentative line-up for
tomorrow's game. Unofficial as it
is, it certainly shows power, mixed with a well-rounded team. In
the centre position, Bob Scare-
belli; the guards, Hans Swinton,
Bernio Gulchon; tackles, Frank
Campbell and Hank Sweatman;
ends, Doug. McCauley and Cam.
Coady; quarterback, Spud Murphy;
fullback, Phil. Guman; left-half,
Bob Peacock; right-half, Ken Islaub.
SPARES
The spare line-men are: Bruce
Murray, Andy Carmichael, Zeke
Davies, Jack Shillabeer, Jack Oliver
and Archie Jacobs. In the back-
field: Doug. Reid, Dusty Rhodes,
Chuck Wills and Alan Sully.

(Put on a (BcWjfcw* ia
Golfers To
Run Dual
Divot Tilt
• THE EXECUTIVE of the
Golf Club, consisting of
BUI O'Brien, Dick Hanley,
and Bob Ford has announced plans for developing the
divot diggers into a more active group, with many
tournaments, and expert
players.
THE TOURNEY
To do this, a double tournament
will be run off to decide the
handicaps of the players and to
feel out the golfing material on
the campus.   The first of these is
the one that must be completed by
October 27, in order thf.t future
contests may be arranged. It is
open to all students who can wield
a club, and all they have to do to
enter is to go to any club member
and put in their names, with those
of their partners, pay a fifty cent
fee, and receive a card from the
AMS office entitling them to
eighteen holes of golf on the University course.
The big tournament will be run
later, and the player with the lowest gross score will take the title
held at present by Bob Ford; and
the one with the lowest net score,
with handicaps based on this
week's preliminary round will receive a prize.
MEETING TUESDAY
At a meeting of the golf club
held next Tuesday, plans will be
completed for coaching hours and
assistance times, and all members
of the golf club must attend.
All those who are interested in
the club and would like to play
should turn out to this meeting.
It will be held In the Stadium.
At the last meeting, only twenty
members were present, and these
feel that there is much more golfing blood on the campus than was
represented there. All it has to
do to show it ia to turn out next
Tuesday.
KINROSS
TWEEDS
• Kinross Tweeds are "musts" in the wardrobes of
hundreds of college men since Tip Top introduced
this famed fabric.
Kinross are not run-of-the-mill tweeds—they're
as British as a bull-dog and just as staunch. They're
brisk, colorful, he-man—fafehion-right and of
course, tailored to your measure as only Tip Top
Tailors knows how.
Kinross Tweeds are a real "break" for the college
man s pocket-book. One of Tip Top's GREAT
values at the regular Tip Top price. Wide selection
of colors and patterns. Hundreds of other fine
British and domestic fabrics.
