Germans in Do or Die
Struggle at West Wall
By VIRGIL PINKLEY
•   LONDON, Sept. 22—(BUP)—The Germans are making
a do or die stand on their own frontier and from the
channel coast to the Swiss frontier some of the worst battles
of the western war are raging.
The desperate Nazi countef-at-       —————————————
tacks have driven the Americans
out of the Reich in one sector and
in the north headquarters admit
the plight of British airborne
troops pocketed in the Arnheim
area of Holland is critical.
Despite the setbacks the overall
Allied picture is satisfactory. The
battered Wehrmacht has taken
heavy losses along the flaming
front. At least 257 Nazi tanks have
been knocked out in the Metz-
Nancy sector where the American
Third Army is locked in an armored battle between the Moselle
River and the Saar basin.
In the center of the front, three
other American columns are fighting through stiff German resistance
in the Aachen area. The main
American drive into Germany appeared to be centered in this sector.
First Army columns east of
Aachen have virtually won control
of Stolberg. The German defenders have been pushed into the
northern part of the town.

Science makes
new Brake
Special to the Ubyssey
• SCHENECTADY, Sept. 22.-A
new magnetic brake, which
will stop a one-eighth horsepower
motor travelling at 16,000 revolutions per minute In less than six
turns, has been. developed by
Chester I. Hall, General Electric
engineer. It promises to have
wide use in the operation of e-
quipment for the armed services
but just how was not announced
by the company in its statement
made public today.
"Another way of expressing the
force with which this new brake
works can be gained by comparison with an automobile," Mr. Hall
explained. "The outside edge of
this rotor, moving at 16,000 rpm,
is traveling at 62 miles per hour.
In stopping It within six turns
would be the same as bringing
this mile-a».minute auto to a dead
stop in 2.73 feet.
"It is called a magnetic brake
but magnetism plays no part in
its stopping operations. A cork
shoe and friction does the trick,"
according to Mr. Hall. "Magnetism* releases it, once the" need for
braking is removed. The motor is
braked at all times, except when
current is applied."
Another feature of this brake,
from a manufacturing viewpoint,
is that there are but 15 parts, compared to 51 parts in the model
previously used for this purpose.

• STUDENTS who have not yet
registered, are asked to do so
as soon as possible, to facilitate the
work of the Registrar and editor

The names of all students are
listed,  with  their addresses and
phone numbers, as well as club,
sorority and fraternity information.
It is expected that work on this
indispensable campus manual will
begin early next week.  The compiling of names and addresses will
be harder and take more time if
the registration cards are not in.
There  are  always   a  few   late
names and these ore included in
the "too late to classify" section.
However, most people should get
their cards in early.

• BRUCE YORKE and Kay
Halpin are at present on their
v/ay back from Toronto where
they represented UBC at the annual National Council meeting of
the SCM of Canada.
Their work th's year had special
significance because of the fact
that the Movement on this campus
prepared a brief which may possibly have great Influence in changing the policy of the Student
Christian Movement.
The last word from the delegates
was that the conference had been
a tremendous success and this
may well mean that the brief was
well received* The conference was

University has already far sur-
, Charles B. Wood, Registrar,
The greatest Increase has been
in the class of '48, where registration has risen over by more
than 100 since last year, but all
faculties show appreciable gains.
The freshman class last year
contained 636 students, but this
year the number has soared to a
probably complete figure of 771.
From the faculty point of view
the largest gains nave oeen made
by the Artsmen, this in spite of
all that Selective Service and the
Wartime Mobilization Board have
been able to do.
Registration in Arts and Science,
including   Home   Economics   and
Commerce, has this year reached,
the figure of 1919, a gain of almost 100 over last year's 1840.
Other faculty gains are as follows:
Applied Science, from 515 to 532;
Agriculture, from 113 to 128; Nursing, from 98 to 118.
Late registrants still coming
in at an appreciable rate, may
still be able to push tne total fig-
urea over the 2700 /nark.
Meanwhile crowded classes are
causing considerable trouble for
the administration staff. Many
classes have had to be moved to
larger rooms, and in some, for
which no larger rooms were a-
vailable, students are still sitting
on the floor.
At least one class has had to
be moved to the Auditorium.

New Westminster 'Y'
Calls for Boys' Leaders
•   LEADERS are needed for
Westminster in conjunction
city.
A plan is being developed by
Bill Teager of the New Westminster "Y" in conjunction with Colonel G. M. Shrum whereby university men interested will devote some of their time to this
welfare work.
A compulsory plan is at present
in operation in the University of
Manitoba whereby men not liable
for military service must work
as leaders in boys' service work.
This tends to alleviate the great
shortage of men for this type of
job.
The men will spend one or two
boys group-work in New
with service groups in that
evenings a week with a group of
ten or twelve boys. They will devote their time to Physical Education or ordinary types of hobbies that the boys prefer.
So far no recompense can be
promised for the work but expenses incurred along these lines
will be covered.
Boys with previous experience
either as leaders or members of
similar groups are welcome and
nre asked to get in touch with

THE  UBYSSEY
Saturday, September 23, 1944
From The Editor's Pen « «
For Canada's Youth
Elsewhere in this issue a plan is outlined, which will at last find suitable war
service for men in this campus who are
prevented from entering UBC's armed
forces. This is the appeal by the New Westminster YMCA for workers in boys' clubs.
Although this type of service is limited
in a sense, it is a good opportunity for those
men on the campus who would like to do
something extra during war as other, physically fit male students are doing. It is not
exactly a war service, but is nevertheless
a vital part of the work on the home front.
It is not necessary to reiterate the importance of keeping the youth of Canada on
the road to a happy, healthy life. That is
Uie job of the YMCA, and no one will deny
that it is one with many benefits, not only
to the youths themselves but also to the
nation.
University students have been among
the first to take advantage of the government's policy of maintaining education at
t high level during wartime. Now it is time
to show that we appreciate this consider
ation. Category "E" men can now show the
physically fit male students that they, too,
have the stuff that is bringing victory closer
every day.
Not all men will have the time to travel
over to New Westminster two nights a week.
We can hear this selfish argument now as
it comes from those who believe that their
studying, so that they may receive high
marks, is the utmost consideration of university students. There is no one in this
university, who is not already giving up
some of his time for war work of son\e kind,
that is too busy to find time for some really
necessary work. It is a sacrifice, but it is
a sacrifice worth making. We think that
every man who is in a position to accept
the situations offered should investigate the
idea.
At the University of Manitoba, work of
this type has been made compulsory. It is a
credit to both UBC students and authorities
that it has not been -felt that the scheme
here should be compulsory. Let us keep it
that way.
Welcome The Returned Man
The Canadian University Returned
Men's Association, started last year by
UBC's ex-servicemen, has again resumed
its activities with the good wishes of the
student body. As a means of rehabilitating
former Soldiers in civilian life, the organization is an excellent addition to campus associations. There is definitely a need for
such a group.
It ls hoped by tiie majority of students,
however, that this organization will not
result in a post-war split between civilians
and ex-soldiers on this campus. This unfortunate outcome of such an organization
has been reported at American Universities,
and it is to be avoided as much as possible
on this campus.
UBC's returned men have lead the way
in preventing this by confining their activities to solving the problems of ex-servicemen, and not entering into campus affairs
as a group. For this they are to be
congratulated.
As long as UBC adopts this level-headed
attitude, friction such as that in California
between student-civilians and student-ex-
soldiers will be avoided. It seems strange
that university students cannot escape the
ordinary prejudices which plague civiliza
tion today. Why cannot those who are
fortunate in receiving the best of information
on human problems assimilate them into a
well-integrated whole, free from prejudices
and narrow provincialism?
It is up to those students on the campus
now to provide a hearty welcome to Canada's soldiers returning from the battlefield
to the classroom. We should open our clubs,
our fraternities, and our student service
organization to these men and make them
feel that they are welcome. Let them know
that their problems are now ours and our
problems become their burden, too. We are
all students, all Canadians, not two groups
of those who fought the war on the battlefield, and those who fought it at home. To
the former goes the greater honor, for their's
was the greater sacrifice. Let us repay that
sacrifice by doing all in our. power to help
the ex-serviceman lead a happy, successful
life.
The ex-serviceman can do his part by
entering into campus life as a student,
determined to further student activities and
interests. He becomes a student on entering
the university, not a suspicious-minded misfit product of the Twentieth Century's Great
Wars.

* A NEW process has been discovered
which makes women's stockings, alcohol,
and a new and cheaper plastic—all at the
same time. The new method has been developed by the Polytechnic Institute of
Brooklyn.
From as little as 10 per cent of the
readily-available sawdust waste in this
country, the new process could obtain
enough plastics for the plastic parts of four
million automobiles, a million telephone sets
and 10 million doorknobs.
Simultaneously the process would yield
enough acetic acid to make—by combination
with cellulose—enough rayon for 130 million
pairs of women's stockings.
WHISKY TOO
Another by-product from this same 10
per cent of sawdust would be wood sugars
that could be fermented into enough industrial alcohol to release facilities of beverage
alcohol producers for two months to make
whisky and other drinks.
By a continuous method of. chemically
adding water to wood, the researchers obtained more than one thousand pounds of a
high-grade ingredient for plastics from one
ton of sawdust. In addition, they got byproducts of 120 pounds of acetic acid, 60
pounds of furfural, and 500 pounds of sugar
—which could make hundreds of pounds of
alcohol.
These vahtable chemicals are recovered
by a special treatment of the wastes under
from the waste liquors from wood hydrolysis
pressure. This breaks down their molecular
structure, and other chemicals are added
to absorb the valuable constituents and
eliminate the water and impurities by a
washing process.
LESS EXPENSIVE
The liquids used for the washing are
separated by distillation, and can be re-used
indefinitely.
The new plastic is similar to many
others already on the market which are
made from more expensive source materials
than sawdust.
When the soldier boy comes marching
home from war the first thing he will want
'to do is trade his uniform for civilian
clothes. The post-war clothes will amaze
him. There will be pants that won't shine,
suits that won't wrinkle and woolens that
won't shrink,
In a speech to the American Chemical
Society in New York, Dr. Donald Powers
of Boston predicted revolutionary changes
in the textile field after the war.
SHRINKPROOF
The compound which will shrinkproof
fabrics and mr.ke them crease resistant is
formaldehyde combined with one of the
members of the melamine family. The treatment will involve treating each individual
fibre with the compound.
Laboratory experiments show that each
fabric has a saturation point when treated
with the compound. When too much is added
the resin forming compound seems to spill
over onto the outside of the fibre.
Dr. Powers says this treatment will reduce the shrinkage in all wool flannel from
30 per cent to 40 per cent. The solution does
not hurt the ability of the fabric to take up
a colour through dyes, either.
In cotton fibers, a newly developed syton
solution adds as much as 50 per cent to their
tensile strength. Dr. Powers says that with
syton-treated yarns looms will operate with
greater efficiency because breaks will be
fewer. In the manufacture of cotton twine
and cotton rope, fewer twists will be needed
and stronger cords produced.
This syton solution will also keep stockings from running—which is good news for
the girls.

people and things
by Cal Whitehead
•   "THAT YOU Samm?"
Receiving no answer he called
again. "Come on out Sam, I won't
hurt you. I just want to talk to
you."
Sam came out.
He seemed to hesitate. He
paused In the half-light between
his caller and his haven, unable
to approach or flee—you know
how it is when the cups on your
feet just won't cooperate.
They are useful Vrhen you are
walkink on the celling. To be
sure. There is where you really
need them. All three pairs. Mut
it is rather disconcerting to say,
"Feet, go this way!" and they
won't.
Command of one's feet is a wonderful gift. Sam thought so too
and he had been trying for most
of his adolescent years to discover
the "key of command."
He would stand sometimes, on
all sixes, and look at those delinquent supports.
"Damn you!" he would say to
them, "get busy and do something
useful for me."
But  they  never  would.   They
would ust stand there.
Sometimes he would beat them to
make them understand, but they
never  would.   They  would  just
stand there.
And so it was this time.
"—I just want to talk to you."
The sound waves beat on his hearing apparatus.
Sam finally moved out of the
dark into the light, at the same
time chewing a few words of
greeting out of the side of his
mouth.
"Oh it's you Angle, I thought
I recognized your voice."
Angle Deuce seemed strange to
Sam, but Sm had always liked
him. He admired Angle's command of foot and desired wholeheartedly to gain it for Himself.
Angle was very friendly and
wished to teach Sam.
But that was last week.
They had had a very heated argument, Angle and Sam, on whether the female or the male of the
species had the best command of
foot. Sam maintained that the females had, and Angle maintained
that the males had.
Sam thought of this now, as
they walked side by side, and he
began to feel angry again. He felt
he could never be friends with
Angle again.
At the next corner, he turned
and said, "So long, Angle."
And it was.
therapy aids wounded
By HAZEL HARTZOO
t VAN NUYS, Cal. -(U.P.)-
Sparkling film actress Jinx
Falkenberg tilted her head and
the pencils raced over drawing
boards as more than a score- of
convalescent soldiers turned their
thoughts from the battlefield to
the peaceful art of portrait painting.
The seem was the Army's Birmingham General Hospital ln picturesque San Fernando Valley,
where hundreds of Southern California soldiers are recuperating
from war wounds—and learning
a peacetime trade at the same
time.,
The art class is only one of
many types of classes in which
veterans are training tnemselves
for new jobs and rehabilitating
themselves for old ones.
Men who were shoe clerks before the war will open their own
radio repair shops because they
have learned how to build a radio
set while still in a wheelchair.
Others, who drove trucks in
civilian life, will emerge from the
hospitals as typists, offering drastic changes in their occupational
potentialities.
When the primary purpose of
such therapy is to provide the war
wounded patients with self-confidence, the- results have far exceeded the original motive, hospital attendants reported.
In the typewriting group more
than 100 patients have learned the
keyboard and have become moderately fast typists since the class
began three months ago. On* patient, with a head injury which
paralyzed his side, is learning to
type to regain the use of his hand.
But the majority have expressed
the desire to make typing an integral part of their postwar work.
And so it is in the other fields.
In the radio repair class only
one patient in a group of 30 had
had any previous technical radio
experience. Now the entire class
can take a set apart, repair it and
even build their own sets. Several of the men plan to abandon
their previous occupations and
open up repair shops.

Totem Staff
In Dire Heed
Of Salesmen
• HOW is your willpower?
Can you influence people?
Is your mind always at least
two jumps ahead of the situation? Can you talk a blue
streak and still hold your
listeners enthralled? In
are you a super-salesman?
Well we don't care whether you
are or not, we still want you to
sell Totems.
At this point we will take time
to explain to all ignorant young
freshmen (of course this doesn't
mean you) and equally ignorant
upperclassmen (see above) just
what a Totem is.
The Totem is UBC's 300 page,
All-American yearbook. This ls a
somewhat extravagant statement,
since the Totem has never been
300 pages and All American at the
same time. But we can dream
can't we?
Well, anyhow, the Totem is our
yearbook, and it has to be sold
because the AMS treasurer ls too
stingy to pay for it. Also because
students on this campus are so
wrapped up in their studies that
they don't realize what a swell
buy is being offered to them unless
someone comes along and explains
it to them.
When you registered we asked
you if you would be interested in
working for our circulation staff.
It you were, now is your chance
to show lt. Just drop around to
the Pub, in the North basement
of the Brock, be seen, snd we will
welcome you with open arms.
(Beautiful girls please note).
We want to get started by the
end of next week, so don't hesitate.
Come on down and give us a hand
right away.
froth Tread On
Soienoemeii Pint
• FRESHMEN BEWARE! Certain guilty members among
you are raising the wrath of the
mighty men of the Science Faculty. Even freshmen should know
the dangers of such a rash act.
It seems that several freshmen
are aspiring to be Engineers. This
in itself is a noble and uplifting
thought. But there is one little
thing that these ambitious people
should remember. It Is the time-
tested axiom, "You aren't an Engineer until you're an Engineer."
In other words, first year students are not entitled) to wear the
science pins. This great privilege
is reserved for lofty second year
students. So any Freshman with
a science pin should be ashamed
of himself and any contemplating
buying one had better stop contemplating right now.
Phrateres Hold
Fireside Socials
• PHRATERES are holding their
annual fireside socials this
Sunday, September 24.
This year the socials are being
held by Phrateres tomorrow at
the homes of fifteen members
throughout the city. Lists have
been posted on the Phrateres bul-
etin board outside the lower common room in Arts where girls
may sign up under the most convenient home.
Freshettes are particularly welcome and are invited to come and
get acquainted.
AMS Office Orders
Faculty Sweaters
• BRISK SALES have been enjoyed at the A.M.S. office this
past week. Already 900 Tillicums,
140 Science Sweaters, 20 U.B.C.
sweaters and 400 Arts and Science
pins have betn disposed of.
There are still plenty of pennants for patriotic students to
wave. However, other U.B.C. mo-
inentos are a bit scarce.
Sweaters are on order, but lt
may be some time before they will
be here. The announcements will
be printed as soon as the sweaters
come.
NOTICE
Students will be able to get their
student passes at the AMS office
on  September  27.
THE  UBYSSEY

Ainsworth      Freshmen Break Up Boyer Love Scene
... Leads Parade
By GEORGE BALDWIN
•   REVIVAL  of  the  traditional
Frosh snake parade highlighted
the night of nights for Frosh sinners Thursday.
Reminiscent of the old days, the
gigantic spectacle brought tears to
the eyes of watchdogs Raphael and
Creighton as it wended its way
up Main, pausing only long enough
to enter the Broadway theater and
interrupt Boyer in a tender love
scene.
RIBALD, COLORFUL
The parade was a climax to a
night of fearful misgivings, ribald
laughter, and colourful jokes, the
first of which were provided by
brutal sciencemen instilling the
fear of the unknown into wary
Frosh.
These same freshmen were greet
ed upon arrival by what appeared
to be a zoot suit riot, but fears
were quickly eased when the
scene resolved itself into well-proportioned upperclassmen rending
outer garments from Frosh to ascertain whether the greenhorns
were wearing their regalia or no.
* Knives in evidence were merely
for the sake of cutting an entrance
through the smoke.
Unfortunately a few of the
younger freshmen were under the
impression that since the function
was called a "smoker" they were
obliged to enter into the sport.
The aforementioned were soon
easily discernible by their good
taste in varying shades of green
gills.
SONGS, TOO
In order to warm the shy "wearers of the green", Allan Ainsworth
led the group in a few discreet
and well-chosen songs—with the
result that all concerned are now
quite sure that she wore it for a
Seaforth. Ainsworth gave the Impression that he harbored a secret
desire to become a soloist, since he
would teach a new song by singing
75 verses of it and then remark,
"Now, all together from the beginning."
One Frosh who was about to
bite the end off a charity cigar
received an elbow in the mouth
and succeeded in swallowing four-
fifths of the stogey.
A group of entertainers which
Included two young ladies, Barney
Potts of night club fame, and jitterbug Guy Faint, .supplied . . .
"masculine entertainment!" Jack
Cohen's aggregation supplemented
the acts.
SADISTIC SCIENCE
Entertainment for Frosh was followed by sadistic pleasure for
Science.
This took the form of meting
out well-deserved punishments for
misdemeanors. One unfortunate
who's sin was bathing his feet in
the pond, took the full brunt of
an upperclassman's joke. This
particular gent was acting In the
accused's defence. Said he "Your
Honor, since this man is a Frosh
he obviously needed to bathe his
feet in the pond!"
Although one man found it
necessary to remove his trousers
due to the fact he had laid two
eggs, all the Frosh mentally removed their school sweaters Thursday night and donned the Blue
and Gold.
Wustapo Tortures
Innocent Freshettes
• FRESHETTES and their Big
Sisters gathered in the Auditorium and the Caf on Thursday
to witness the horrible fate that
the Wustapo had cooked up for
the offenders of freshette rules.
Barbara Green and the members
of WUS sang and grimaced before two squirming freshettes,
"Flosy Flirt" and "Polly Primp,"
who had disobeyed the Wustapo
orders.
After undergoing torture, the offenders were carried off to Hades
by some unfortunate creature in
a long white, nightgown.
Then the freshettes learned how
the Home Economics students
bake a cake, with appropriate gestures. Casey King was the
straight-laced schoolmarm.
Ivy "Atlanta" Pronger was then
chased all over the stage by a lion,
until one of those wolfish science-
men came in sight! It didn't take
long for the lion to fade out of the
picture.
After three movie shorts, all
ravenous females fought their way
to the Caf, but that movement was
distinctly a case of the survival
of the fittest. Many bloody and
mangled bodies were left on the
steps, but,a large fighting crowd
still reached the tables.
However, most of them managed
to have some supper, be it but a
single bun, or some meat.
Now, the report of the following
is purely hearsay, because the
writer was behind some hefty
piece of femininity, and practically under a table. As usual, the
offenders had their faces washed,
and the laugh of all upperclass-
and rouge. Marcelle Hosklns had
to cut out a paper doll and make
love to it as she warbled "Paper
Doll." Joan Bayne Was among the
chorus of beauties who attempted
the difficult Russian dance, which
is exceptionally good for the hips!
Other had to act like various animals, even a cat.
Thus ended another Big Sister
supper, the fear of all Freshettes
and decorated with white lipstick
women.

Freshettes Wear Make-up |
At SCM Mixer Tonight
• FRESHETTES who are suffering from the extreme agony
of cosmeticities will be relieved to
know that they may wear full armour tonight at the SCM Mixer.
The relaxation of this terrible
rule, if even for one night, may
very well turn out to be a godsend to the girls. Besides that,
Dick Bibbs, AMS president, absolutely refuses to be seen dancing
with anyone not clad in the complexion  necessities.
Frosh, wearing full regalia will
be admitted free, whereas upperclassmen may gain entrance by
the small charge of 35 cents at the
door. Dancing to select recordings
in the Main Lounge of Brock Hall
will be from 8:30 until midnight.
The Master of Ceremonies will
be Bunny Menzies, whom you will
remember was the candidate for
the Queen of the Red Cross Ball.
As ,an added attraction thera
will be hostesses to perform Introductions and organize mixers
which should result in loads of fun
for all. The hostesses will be Betty
Scott, Mary Yorke, Julie van Gor-
der, and Jean Bertrand.
Harry Penny, secretary, stated
that,   "We're  anxious  that  Frosh
become acquainted with the broad
aspects of our movement and if
any of them are interested in an
intellectual approach to the problems of life, as well as jitterbugg-
ing, we will guarantee that both
of these will be fulfilled."
A fireside will be held on September 24 at the home of Dr. C.
W. Topping, 4613 West 6th.

• JABEZ' PLAY, "Her Science-
man Lover," has been revived
by the Players' Club for the benefit of the Frosh at the Freshmen's reception Tuesday night.
This play, to be held in the Auditorium, is an object lesson to all
freshettes.
It is also a warning to freshmen
of the traditions; they have to live
up to when they become science-
men.
It was written several years ago
by Jabez, and the Players' Club
has seen fit to revive It on this
occasion to help celebrate thoir
30th anniversary.

Consideration Urged
ForlBrilliant Students
Special to the Ubyssey
• TO SUPPLY the number of
engineers necessary to reBulld
for peace, colleges must continue
in the post-war period their prewar curricula rather than "retool"
overnight with completely new
courses, Dr. A. R. Stevenson, Jr.,
of Schenectady, told members of
the Society for Promotion of Engineering Education in an address
at their convention in Clncinattl.
"During the war effort, industry
has expanded rapidly and taken
on many new, complicated and
difficult tasks," said Dr. Stevenson, who is administrator of the
General Electric company's en
gineerlng education program.
"As a result, young engineers
recently graduated from college'
have been given tremendous responsibilities which in the pastl
would have been assigned only to
much older men. They have car
ried these responsibilities superbly.
This is a splendid tribute both to
the young men and to the engineering colleges from which they
were graduated. When an educational system has been turning
out graduates who have met these
present emergencies so splendidly,
we hesitate to suggest changes."
Commenting on the return to
college of the "handbook engineers" resulting from the A-tt and
V-12 programs of the United States
army and navy, he said:
"Since they will have obtained
their previous education in accelerated courses without sufficient
time to absorb the fundamental
principles, we hope that the colleges will try to make up for this
jli lack by putting more emphasis
If than ever on a real understanding
If/of the fundamental principles of
■"engineering."

According to LUKE MOYLS
ME AND MY MEMORIES
• THERE WAS A TIME when I. like various other characters on this campus, had a deep disgust for sports writing
and all that goes with it. However, there came another time
when I reached that stage where sports writing and all that
goes with it appealed to me.
Walking into the gym the other afternoon, I came across
the Thunderbirds going through their paces in their first
practice. All this reminded me of that time when I was
instilled with a startling desire to be a sports scribe. The
occasion also reminded me of a certain ambitious cub reporter
who once found his way into this sports department, even
as several have this year, bless 'em. *
What A Sports Column!
This certain young newshound was sent on many errands by his boss, but, wishing to prove that he could write,
he set about writing a column. It was quite a column, and
as I recall, it showed up even his boss's editorial. Here it is:
"At 5:30 on Thursday, I am casually strolling into the
gym, and what should I see but a gang of giants running
their feet off. They are chasing a rather large ball around,
and from time to time they are picking it up and throwing
it at the most peculiar looking basket I have ever seen.  I
am saying it is peculiar because it has a hole in the bottom.
"Who should be yelling at these scantily-garbed monsters
but a little guy all dressed in white. Despite his size, he seems
to be having it all over these overgrown fiends, because every
few minutes he is stopping them and telling them they look
lousy and they better run faster and throw the ball around
more.
Ole Was More Sociable
"Now, I am wondering what this whole thing is about,
so I am sidling up to another rather overgrown character.
But this one seems to have developed more around the waist
than in an upwards direction. I am asking him what the score
is, and he is saying: "They call me Louie the Lump." So
naturally I am asking him his name, and he is answering: "Oh!
The boys are just having a little work-out."
"Thoroughly disgusted, I am removing myself from his
rather morose presence, and I am sitting myself down on a
bench beside one of those great, sweating creatures I was
telling you about.
"This fellow is much more sociable. He is giving me his
name* as Ole, and immediately I ask him, he is telling me all
about what is going on. From what I am hearing, this is 'a
game they call "basketball", and the energy-wasters score
points when they get the ball into the basket.
"As for the little guy all dressed in white, Ole is telling
me that this is the coach, Mr. Van Vliet, and because he is
the boss, he has to do a lot of screaming.
"I can see that Ole is a good man so I am thanking him
profusely and saying he must tell me more at the next "workout," because I must get the whole set-up on this extraordinary game if I am to be a sports scribe.
What A Big Fnumph!
"Then I am dashing over to the "pub", and pouncing
upon the nearest typewriter, I am sweating more than those
basketball joes as I swish off another story.
"Quick, copy boy, gimme a coke!"
What a fnumph that writer turned out to be! Personal,
I never heared of him, but they tell me that this certain
young ambitious cub reporter went under the name of
Luke Moyls.
Strong Team This Year
Varsity Football Outfit
Plays East Indians Today
• VARSITY'S SOCCER SQUAD,
always a strong contender in
the Vancouver and District Football Association, will have another
powerful crew this year, and the
new team swings into action for
the first time this season when
they meet East Indians in a practice tilt at John Oliver High School
today at 2:30.
This year's edition of the V and
D League promises to be a good
one. Altogether, it is expected
that there will be 10 teams in the
loop, and these will probably include Navy, North Van Ship Repairs, Pro-Recs, Hastings East
Bluebirds, East Indians, South
Van, Coquitlam, Vancouver Rangers and Varsity.
Army, the team which walked
away with the league championship last year, is definitely not
entering a squad this year,  but
the Navy team should offer plenty
of competition this season.
The Tars will probably have lacrosse' stars Don Matheson and
Les Coombes, as well as Denny
Rogers, a flashy footballer who
formerly starred with North
Shore in the Coast League. ■
However, Varsity will have a
strong line-up this year too. Returning to the fold are Fred Hole,
Pat Campbell, Don Petrie, Herb
Smith, and Les Moran.
Several of these finished up the
soccer season last year with Coast
League teams. Smith worked on
St. Saviours, Petrie was with Boeings and CampbeU with St. Andrews.
So far the crew has 17 members,
but many more are needed ln order to field two teams. All those
interested should see Alex Cowie
as soon as possible. Strip may be
picked! up at the AMS office.

Smart Freshman
Cagers Favored
• UBC's FRESHMEN and sophomores are all set for the
first big battle of the year which comes off in the gym
on Monday at noon. The battle is in the form of a basketball
game, so they say, but apparently, there will be no holds
barred in the contest.
Bud McLeod has high hopes for his Frosh outfit, and
although he will be without the services of Eddie Ryan
who has injured his arm, he expects his team to walk over
the degenerate Sophs.
Ole* Bakken has been working hard on his second year
gang and is hopeful in spite of the shortage of sophomore
hoopers. Al MacDonald, active basketballer with last year's
Frosh Inter A squad, will captain the team.

Girls9 Instructors Prepared
For Heavy Sports Program
By ANNA
• PHYSICAL education classes
for 1944 will welcome four new
instructresses.
Isabella Braidwood Roper, the
wife of Bill Roper, an athlete of
standing throughout Vancouver,
will instruct the Frosh class of '44
in Keep Fit. *
Mrs. Roper, a specialist in physical education, u> a graduate of the
University of Washington, majoring in physical education. She attended the University of B.C. in
her first two years and was a
teacher of physical education at
Lord Byng High School. Following
her marriage she substituted in
various city schools.
Isabel Roper will assist In the
monthly co-ed activities sponsored
by the Women's Athletic Association such as the annual swimming
meet and play-day.
Helen Matheson, studying on the
campus for her degree of Master
of Arts will take charge of classes
WHITE
in basketball. Miss Matheson, a
student of prominent athletic reputation was a leader ln the War
Work Sports Program on the Campus. Helen was elected as the first
president of the Program in which
the plans of Sports for the coeds
was introduced. She will assist also
in the development of the sports
program for '44 and '45.
Fourth year student Lois Reid,
President of the Women's Athletic
Association and the only co-ed on
records to be elected to her second
term of office by1 acclamation, will
handle the badminton classes. Lois
is a great contributor to the campus sports and held the British
Columbia Badminton Championship in 1941.
Prominent In sports throughout
her college career, Ada McLaren,
Director of Co-Ed Intramurals will
assist In the organization of competitions and tournaments under
the capable and aggressive directorship of Miss Gertrude Moore.
Under the direction of Miss
Moore, Girls' Physical Education
Director, plans are being formed
for extra-mural competition. Basketball, badminton and archery
will be the basis of the competition
and will be arranged for either
Wednesday evening or Saturday
afternoon.
The Physical Education staff for
the coming year should prove an
interesting, promising and aggressive experiment and the hopes for
the co-operation of the women of
the campus is with the co-eds.
REGISTRATION
Registration for the various activities will commence on Monday
at 9 oclock in the gym. The number in each class is limited. In order
to avoid disappointment, register early. All classes will commence the
week of October 2.
Gymnasium costume consists of navy blue shorts and socks, white
shirt and running shoes. Lockers will be arranged for at the time of
registration. '

Varsity Rugger Enthusiasts
Organize Two Strong Teams
• IF PRESENT plans materialize, Varsity's English rugger
squads will at least be in shape when they take to the
greensward this season. Some sources claim that they will
also be the teams to beat although local rugby mentors aren't
saying anything, yet.
The ultimate goal of this year's
intensive training schedule will be
the annexing of the McKechnie,
Miller and Tisdall Cups. The McKechnie silverware, which at present reclines on a Victoria shelf,
will be gunned for in a very special
manner since the heavy Island
crew always provide an interesting
battle.
This ycar the Islanders will have
their work cut out for them, if
* they are to retain this historic mug.
According to opinions which floated around at the initial organisational confab, the UBC teams will
be stronger than ever.
At Thursday's organization meeting, George Rush outlined the
Varsity victory campaign for the
1944-45 season. It includes a rigid
training schedule with Coach
Maury Van VlieP whipping the
boys into top shape in time for the
curtain-raiser.
The problem of obtaining a regular coach for this year's squads
was also discussed. There are
three coaching prospects. • Jack
McKercher will return soon and
may take on the piloting job, while
Buster Woodward, former UBC
grid star, has also indicated his
desire to guide the Gold and Blue
entry after he recovers from an
operation necessitated by wounds
suffered overseas.
The third Is Major Dobble, one
of B.C.'s outstanding coaches, who
has managed many laurel-lifting
aggregations in his time.
Already the two teams have begun light work-outs. Next practice
iy- slated for Tuesday at 12:30. All
those interested are invited to turn
out ready for action. It is hoped
that even a third fifteen can be
formed this year. Freshmen are
especially  welcome.
Tigers Win Two;
move Up H Game
• DETROIT - (BUP) — Detroit
Tigers slapped down the Boston
Red Sox In both halves of their
doubleheader Friday to boost their
American League lead to one and
a half games over the second-place
St. Louis Browns. The Bengals
took the first game, 7-4, and then
continued with an 8-4 victory In
the nightcap.
In the National League, at Boston, the Braves trounced the St.
Louis Cardinals, 11-2. The Cards
looked like anything but a team
that had just won its third straight
pennant.
At New York, the Chicago Cubs
practically cinched fourth place by
whipping  the  Giants,  8-1.
Sophs turn to limber up for the
all-important game. The turn-out.
however, was unsatisfactory, only
four upperclassmen were there.
Another injury has put another
first-year boy on the side-lines.
Herb Capozzi received several
face cuts when his glasses shattered while he was practising Friday.
Here are the line-ups for the
two teams:
FROSH — Fred Bossons, Dave

Won't you give and give generously to
the Combined Community Chest appeal
now in progress? No amount too small.
