DP Has Campus Sights Explained
Miroslav Fie by Ann Langbein, first year arts, newly-arrived
DP brought here on ISS Scholarship. Stocky Fie plans to return
to his native Czechoslovakia as soon as the Communist government in power is displaced. At UBC he plans to study political
science and watch democracy in action.

Partisans Await
.-■-.-,; tfwpttfy^
Armed partisan forces behind the iron curtain are waiting
for support from the West before surging into action, two displaced students, at U,BC on ISS Scholarships told the Ubyssey.
The students, Miroslav Fie from Czechoslovakia, and Guna
Valters from Latvia, both concur in the opinion such an underground is at work.
According to Fie, the army is at work in the Ukraine,
Russia, Czechoslovakia and in other countries in the Soviet
sphere of influence.
Fic's story reads like an escape episode from a dime
pulp magazine.
In February of 1948 Fie was attending Charles' University in Prague.
At this time the government was
upset and he led student uprisings in
Prague to protest the communist coup.
He   supported   the   Benes   regime,
which was then in power,
Thrown in prison for his part in the
student uprisings, Fie was finally
sentenced to 10 years in the Czech
coal mines.
After less than a month behind
barbed wire under forced labor, Fie
escaped by sawing a hole in the
floor of the barracks and climbing
a barbed wire fence.
After the barbed wire there was the
obstacle of a 4 metre high fence.
A friend, who had escaped with
Fie, limped along behind him, injured
while climbing the barbed  wire.
Lying in the dark, Fie and his
friend waited until a guard at the
only gate in the wall busied himself
with a telephone call and then
slipped  through.
The pair  ran for miles over  fields
and through  forests and  then  holed
up  in a  riverside  cottage  used  only
during the summer.
After hiding in the cottage for three
days the pair left for Prague, travel
ling on 20 crowns Fie had sewn
into his pants before coming to the
forced  labor camp.
For the next three months Fie hid
in Prague and worked for the underground. On April 15 of this year
he crossed into the American zone
of Germany and became a. displaced
As soon as he can, Fie wants to
return to Czechoslovakia. At the present time, he says, this is impossible,
because the communists are in power,
"They've got enough on me to hang
me," he says.
Two thousand of Fic's fellow-students are in exile all over Europe.
All of them are anti-communists.
Fie, himself a member of the communist party, says the Benes government would be the right wing of
the labor party if compared to our
The Social Democrats in Czechoslovakia amalgamated with the communists when they took over the
Unmarried, 27-year-old Fie has a
brother as well as his parents still
living in Czechoslovakia.
His activities at UBC, he says, will
be confined to study and watching
democracy. He thinks the idea of
student exchange scholarships are a
fine  thing,
Graduates must keep their appointments for Totem
pictures. #
October 28 has been set as the last day for the taking of
grad pictures. Krass Studios are taking the pictures in huts
behind JJrock Hall.
Appointments according to photographers are not being
kept. They point out that appointments can be made to have
them taken in studios downtown.
Totems meanwhile continued to be offered at AMS
offices in Brock Hall. Only the number of yearbooks
ordered will be-printed officials announced last week.
Eighty-Three Register
For Fraternity Rushing

With sorority rushing rapidly draw-1*
in to a close male Greek letter societies opened registration for rushing
yesterday morning.
By yesterday afternoon some 83
Greek hopefuls had signed up for
fraternit'y rushing this fall, The figure
is believed to be below last year's
number for early registration.
Registration is being carried on in
the Alma Mater Society offices in the
south end of the Brock Hall. Interfraternity Council have placed men at
the rustling desk to help the prospective Greeks to complete registration.
Rushees will havQ an opportunity
to register for the remainder of this
week. Two days in i'he following week
have been set aside for late registration.
Registration fee is one dollar, but
an additional one dollar will be levied on late registrants.
No man may rush a fraternity for
which he has not officially registered
wilh IFC. No freshmen may register
and 12 units to first year are required
for eligibility in fall rushing.
Tween Classes
Pat Fogarty, treasurer of the Student Christian Movement, yesterday told reporters that someone had stolen
a large, plywood "welcome" sign from the SCM clubroom.
The theft, which apparently was aimed at the SCM's
advertising on Club Day, occurred last Wednesday.
"We expected action in the Movement," said Fogarty
ruefully, "but not so quickly not- in that particular way,"

Receives New
Totem Pole
Presented To
Department Of
Social Work
There is retribution for un-
kindness to strangers.
An Indian legend about a fisherman who turned into a beaver because
of his rudeness to a strange man is
depicted on a totem pole now ih the
Social  Work  Department.
This totem was presented to the
Social Work Department by the B.C,
Indian Arts and Welfare Society last
May. Standing about ten feet high,
it was carved by Ellen Neel of
Alert Bay and given through the
generosity of Mrs.  W. C. Woodward.
University Social Work Department
has done extensive work in raising the
standards of British Columbia Indians .The totem is a symbol of the
hope of the Indians for more and
higher education.
Hero of the legend is Kha-ne-ke-laq,
who has all the, qualities of a perfect man—he's beautiful, intelligent,
big, strong, and a hater of evil.
Kha-ne-ke-laq made a belt from
the skin of a dead serpent. In his
wanderings he came to a stream and
asked a fisherman for a fish. Because
of the fisherman's unkind and insulting refusal, he used the serpent's
power to turn the man into a beaver.
Ultimately the Social Work Department will have tho totem pole
set  up outside the building.

Cost Estimations Have Risen
Over $?,000 Since Last Year
Members of UBC's Varsity Outdoor Club won't be allowed
to build their club house on Mount Seymour, according to Jim
Aitken, president.
Because their plans are not "aesthetically suited to the
surroundings," they have been rejected by E. G. Oldham, superintendent of the Provincial Parks Division.
VOC planned to build a structure to3>— ——

Site for the club cabin was granted
the organization last winter by the
Provincial government's forest service.
For a cost of $100, the group had
plans drawn up and submitted to Ole
Johannsan, chief forester for Mount
Seymour, who approved them with
only minor changes.
After Johannsan's approval, plans
were sent to Victoria where they
were adjudged "not aesthetically
suited to the surroundings.
Commenting on the rejection Jim
Aitken said, "we had to make quite
a practical building, since our funds
are  not  limitless.''
Other ski experts and builders in
Vancouver approved of the plans when
they were submitted to them.
Meanwhile, the organization has
plans for a frame building, and plans
for this structure will'be submitted
to Victoria in the near future for
To accommodate members for the

executives is that builders estimates
for the structure have increased at
the same time. Builders state lhat
construction costs will settle somewhere around $12,000.

Money Watchdog To Check Spending:
AMS'Business Manager Brings
New System To Council Office
Student financial affairs are being
competently handled.
Such is the opinion of H. B. Maun-
sell, newly appointed business manager, who will act as watchdog for
AMS funds this year.
Born in MaoLeod, Alberta, Mr.
Maunsell entered the employ of the
Bank of Commerce in his middle
teens. At the age of twenty-three he
was appointed as a Relief Manager
of some of the "pioneer" banks that
were springing up across the prairies.
Moving to B.C. in 1934 Mr. Maunsell
worked at logging communities on
Vancouver Island for eight years,
primarily at Courtney.
A   family   man,   Mr.   Maunsell   has
a son and daughter, the former beint: [
in business anil the daughter present-j
ly  employed as a doctor's reception- !
ist. Only recreation that he intends to
follow while here is a quiet game of
golf, his time off "duty" being occupied with the Kiwanis and the
Masonic Lodge, both of which he is
an active member.
Mr. Maunsell refused to comment on
AMS affairs, confiding only that lie
had received marvellous co-operation
(rom   AMS  officers.
, He is particularly impressed by the
very official and competent way in
which student affairs are being admin ist red,
Students can rest assured that their
money is in competent hands. Let us
here .say to the man with the twinkling eyes and the hearty laugh "Ifla-
hou -.va," 'slay a while," "we're glad
to  have   vou." Page 2

On TheWooing OfProfessors; Or
How To Become A College Man
THIS colum normally confines
itself attacking pc.lu'ieians, defending communists 'nothing
like a gcod contradiction!, belaboring the BCER and like space-filler material. This week however,
out of pity towards 9.">l) bewildered
freshmen, it has re-oiled the copy
machine and now comes forward
with timely advice on how to win
professors and influence examiners.
The following cardinal rules will
be found helpful.
Early in the year make it clear
lhat you think tho course is a
pseudo-science, that one nltuid
opinion is a.s good as another, that
professors know no more about it
than you do.
Emphasize your point' by poinlm;',
out that professor* live a cloistered
existence and knew nothing about
life anyway.
When  your   pn lessor   unci   some
other so-called authority differ on
a point, always argue on behalf of
your  professor's  opponent.
If you  have an apple or a piece
of celery lift over from your
lunch sit in the from' row of your
; fierii'ion lecture and make good
healthy rmiMicating sounds during
the period,
CALL   your   professor  up  about
midnight  and  ask   him   to  explain his lecture to you as you
were playing  bridge  in  thc  Brock
and all that
by les armour
and  didn't get  time to go. He said
he'd tdway.s be glad  to hear from
yon  didn't ho'.'
Don't   boi'lier   to   write   a    term
essay. Most fraternity houses keep
a large stock of old ones which
they will sell for a reasonable
price. Markers are always delighted to read last year's essays over
again, anyway. Saves time in assigning  grades.
Don't read the required textbooks
bm' make it clear that you think
thc professor's lectures aro straight
from the text anyway. Convince
yourself of this and you will realize that you don't need to go to
lectures oithcr,
MAKE a point of bringing
some reading material such
as ih'< Ubyssey to lectures.
Saves loin; '•; :<•!. Much more interesting than listen ng li the lecture anywey.
Finally, remember lhat it's mi.uh
too early to start studying until the
end of October. After thai' it's too
late to worry,
Following graduation in Arts from Dalhousie University, I taught first in Pictou
Academy and then in New Glasgow High
School. It was in this latter that I first
saw young Garnet Sedgewick. He had come
to New Galsgow with his widowed mother
as a young boy.
I distinctly remember his spare form,
as he sat in the rude schoolroom of the
shabby wooden High School, an old building
housing New Glasgow's original high school.
Garnet was a boy of 12 or 13 in the first
year high school class in history, when 1
fil*st remarked him. He was not rugged, nor
very robust, as I recollect; his face was
small, his skin rather inclined to be sallow.
But there was an alertness in the eye and
an eagerness of attention to the subject of
the period. Already there was, too, the appearance of the studious about him.
Of the two kinds of humans, roughly
divided by the late Prof. James, into tough-
minded and tender-minded, I would have
placed this lad among the latter. For example, he did not care for the rough and
tumble games of the male majority of his
schoolmates. At the same time he was forward enough in respect to his books and the
subjects of the daily curriculum.
I did not continue more than two years
on the staff. I left for post graduate courses
in Britain and on the Continent, so I was
unable to follow young Sedgewick's career
up till he entered Dalhousie University,
where, as is well known, he won high honors
in  his chosen courses  .
I remember but one funny experience
while in the classroom, in which Garnet
was unwillingly involved. Boys sat together,
two to a desk at that time, and a chap
named Fraser was sitting beside Garnet. This
tough-minded lad was a lover of the out-
of-doors and the wild life of the woods. This
day he came to school looking mischievous—
nothing unusual in him, by the way. While
Garnet was absorbed in a problem, he quietly
drew a small live snake from his pocket and
held it up by its tail in front of Garnet's face.
He did not cry out, but he was plainly terribly upset. Fortunately, I saw his helpless
expression and, descending speedily, I carried off Fraser for absent treatment befitting
the misconduct of this young rapscallion.
I wonder as I look back whether that
begot a complex in young Garnet, in virtue
of which, according to the freudian psychologists, he would have, ever after, a subconscious objection or fear of snakes.

two German students were to be
brought over to this country and

Will Not be returning to their homes;
the money will in no way perform

If the money is to be used as an
ordinary scholarship fund, why can
it not be used to educate our own
more unfortunate prospective students. I know of two or three capable
students in B.C. who would greatly
appreciate the money. Many students
from my own district (Kpotenays)

or two from university in order to

UBC Swimmers
Going Places
This Year
Even Though They
Are Handicapped
By Lack Of Pool
UBC Swimming team is going to
plaee high in competition again this
year despite the many handicaps that
seem to keep them tied down.
"With-still no pool and none in sight
for the next few years at least,
UB6 is forced once again t'o hike to
Crystal Pool, the team's second home,
to get in their much needed practice.
Other great handicap grows indirectly out of the pool deficit. With a
host of talent from up the coast and
the Interior, talent that should ordinarily migrate to UBC, all going to the
pool-equipped universities to the
south, UBC is left' with the few faithful splashers that have kept the team
in the headlines for the past year or
But the talent that UBC has is good.
A few should have been t'aking part
in the British Empire Games trials
during the summer, but were deemed
Ineligible because they did life-guard
work to earn money for their schooling.
Bob Thistle, who broke a Canadian
Collegiate backstroke record last year
was one of these, and Jim Hawthorne,
divw, shared the same fate.
,■ Thistle and Hawthorne will both be
back with the team this year as well
as a lot of the regulars even though
Empire Games Commission does rule
them out of the games.
For all those newcomers and veterans of the water, a swimming team
organizational meeting will be held
Thursday at 12:30 in the Stage Room
of the Brock.
WAA Considering
Larger Membership
A general meeting of the
Women's Athletic Association
is to be held today in Arts 100.
Every woman on campus is
expected to attend.
Women's Atheltics President Carol
MacKinnon states that the meeting
is to consider various recommendations of the 1948-49 Student Council
on  WAA  activities.
It was charged last year that women's athletics had too great a voice
in AMS affairs in proportion to its
influence on campus. The Council
turned down the suggestion that the
WA lose its Council seat and instead, suggested ways in which the
Directorate could become more effective.
Today's meeting is to act on the
recommendation that the WAD should
be enlarged to include team managers,
a vice-president, a WUS-WAA liason
officer and a public relations chid'.
In a decision reached by officials
of the B.C.A.H.A. it was decided that
the Mainline League would operate
with Senior "A" status.
UBC has a schedule of more than
twenty games in this league and as a
consequence will be obliged to enter
in that category.
All the local players are now being
registered in this new classification.
The Allan Cup' is the symbol of
amateur hockey supremacy in Canada and has been won by such famous teams as the Trail Smoke Eaters,
Sydney Millionaires and Ottawa Senators.
How UBC will measure up in such
competition is an unanswerable question. One thing is certain however,
UBC will fare as well as any team
in the Mainline League or the Koot-
enay League, B. C.'s two Senior "A"
Several of UBC's players have been
approached by Senior "A" squads in
Canada and for this reason it is felt
that UB'C will measure up.
Last season Nanaimo Clippers, an
inferior team to UBC, defeated Kim-
berley Dynamiters in an exhibition
series. This fact coupled with the
overall strengthening of all the mainland teams would suggest that UBC
will   certainly  qualify   in   their   new
Haas Young, ex-UBC star was offered a position with Trail Smoke
Eaters this season but he chose a
trip to Europe instead.
Hugh Berry, latest acquisition to
the local squad, was sought by several Senior "A" teams before deciding
to return to school. His record is
sparkling and with his outstanding
ability this squad will be definitely
UBC's schedule calls for games
against Nanaimo, Kerrisdale and the
three Interior squads in the Mainline
REPLACEMENT for the missing Haas Young is ex-UBC
hockey star Hugh Berry.

Exact time in the afternoons will

A powerful Whitman line
and some very excellent pass
defense combined to make the
Thunderbirds look very ineffective last Saturday afternoon when they finished up
on the low side of a 6-0 score.
From a spectators point of view
the game was to say the very least,
dull, as the offensive tactics of both
teams were at a low ebb. Only bright
spots in the entire game were some
inspired charges by Nichols and West
of the Thunderbirds to nail Whitman
backs for losses, Cal Boyes' passing,
UBC's kicking and Whitman's pass
Whitman was the more powerful
team but lacked the speed to take
advantage of this power Scortchy
Smith, Whitman halfback who did
most of their ground gaining was
not too fast but showed a good change
of pace, that carried him for a few
long and many short gains.
Their pass defense was exceptionally good and our ends were well
covered all afternoon. On the other
hand the Birds were very weak offensively due to poor blocking in the
line and noticeably poor backfield
Doug Reid and George Puil both
turned in grand games on offensive
and defense. Whitman didn't have a
back to compare with either of them.
Another weak point that showed
on both teams was the tackling, the
runners were dragged to the ground
rather than being hit solidly. Some
of the boys such as Reid, Nixon and
the Whitman's two first string ends
however really lowered the boom on
a few scattered occasions.
The Birds really did have a bad
day and maybe they will be able to
show us the kind of ball they have the
ability' to play when they run up
against Eastern Oregon in two weeks
time. The two week lay off certainly
won't do them any harm.
STANDOUTS  in the game:
—Spooners kick at half time, good
for 50 yards.
-Whitmans 67" end the Birds
couldn't even reach the one pass
that went to him.
■Puil he only weighs 140 pounds
soaking wet and he made yards off
tackle yet.
—Flea Flicker Maybe the Birds should
put more razzle dazzle into their
games it seems to work.
Construction On Gym
Gets Go-Ahead Signal
Dreams of UBC's War Memorial Gymnasium will soon become reality.
Decision to begin construction on the main unit immediately
was made at a recent special meeting of the War Memorial
Dominion Chomp To Go For
With Men Who Know Cyclists
Best-It s Miliman Two To One
Too bad UBC doesn't field a bicycle team. With present Dominion
Champ John Millman on the squad,
this university would walk away
with everything.
In the opinion of some of the
riders who raced against Millman,
he i.s just about the smoothest thing
on wheels north of the border.
Eric Oland and Jim Tettemantc,
pari' of the Winnipeg entries in the
recent Dominion Championships
in which Millman rode away with
the Canadian crown, had nothing
hut praise for young UBC student.
Oland, in competitive racing since
19116 and a master at the art, claims
that Millman has the fastest sprint
that he has ever seen.
And Oland has been around. He
has in his illustrious career raced
all over Canada, Chicaga, Minneapolis, Detroit, Wisconsin, and many
other places in the U.S.
"I've never seen a man with a
faster sprint in all my days on the
tracks," claimed the veteran Oland.
Millman's racing bore out the
truth of Oland's statement. Racing
against Hamilton, in the Vi an
eastern entry who broke a Cana
dian record in his time trials for
the 1-3 mile, Millman still took
the event. Hamilton failed to even
Millman has t'he build, the legs,
the power, the youth, but not much
experience in competitive cycling,
yet he took the Championship.
Oland predicts that the UBC star
will go a lomg \»iay in the two-
wheeled racers if he chooses to
stay with it.
More experience gained in the
tracks will make him a match for
anyone on the continent in a few

The meeting was called by Sutherland, Chairman of the Board of Trustees and President of the Alma Mater
Society, to discuss the advisability
of proceeding with the building as
planned in view of present high costs.
The meeting passed a resolution
recommending that the trustees commence construction at the earliest
possible date.
"Originally it was hoped that this
Provincial War Memorial would include an Auxiliary Gymnasium and
a Swimming Pool," declared Suther
land, "but these will have to wait."
UBC President Norman A. M. MacKenzie, one of the trustees, had previously expressed the hope of an
early start on construction. Dr. MacKenzie is at present in the east, but
all the other trustees were present
at the meeting and learned that all
public supporters of the Memorial
Campaign contacted were In favor
of immediate action.
"Provided the trustees concur excavation will commence as soon as
final details have been settled" said
Sutherland.     '
