McRae Hits
MAD Funds
Don McRae, Treasurer of tho
University of British Columbia
Alma Mater Society, expressed
his disapproval of the allocation
of 81.78 per student to the Men's
Directorate before the Constitutional levislon Committee on
Wednesday, November 13.
McRae pointed out that this
sum is deducted from women's
fees ss well as from men's, but
that the allocation to the Women's
Athletic Association was voted
from general funds. The 81.73
allocated to the MAD is one-
quarter of the total fee paid by
each student to AMS.
Continuing, McRae illustrated
how this situation affected bookkeeping fer mixed clubs, such as
Archery, where half the budget
was paid by MAD while the othei
half was paid by Council.
He suggested the establishment
of an overall Athletic Directorate
for both men and women, with
proper precautions to insure ths
rights of women.
When Questioned on the position
of the Undergraduate Socletiai
Committee, McRae said that he
felt it would not be ableto overrule the Council but that it could
provide • soundlngboard of stu
dent opinion.
He suggested that motions for
Urge expenditures or activities
could be referred to it for review
before council decision'. "The USC
should provide a training field fox
future Council members", he said.
The eommittee is considering
four main points of contention
raised last year; relation of Ubc
to the Student's Council, Discipline, Eligibility, and Election
Ray Dewar, chairman of the
committee, has issued an open
invitation to all students with
ideas on these subjects to present
them te the committee.

this week.
UBC Canvass
Is* Successful
Early returns from the studem
canvassing indicate a tremendoui
public response to the War Memorial Oym Campaign.
Over 17,000 pledge cards were
distributed to the canvassers on
Thursday, and returns from these
range from one to 180 dollars.
"Results from Thursday's drive
are exceptionally gratifying, 800
per cent better than we ever expected," stated Penn McLsod, Executive Manager of the campaign,
"Detailed returns have not been
tabulated as donations are still
coming in," he said.
Woodward's and Spencer's storsi
have contributed $8000 and llOOt
respectively to the student endeavour.
Returns from regular Gym
Drive canvassing yesterday a-
mounted to 13000.
Mummers Offer
Dramatic Effort
How much sorrow a woman's
mind can absorb, will be illustrated by the University of British
Columbia Players' Club in their
forthcoming presentation "Riders
of the Sea."
Stark tragedy is the theme of the
play written by J. M. Synge, and
considered by some critics the best
of modern dramas.
Unusual note is the fact that
directors of the production are a
mother-and-son duo, Mrs. Ivy
Ralston, veteran director of Little
Theatre plays, and Derik Ralston,
long-standing member of UBCs
Players' Club.
Leading female lead, Maurya,
portrayed by Norma Fieldhouse,
represents a strong willed mother.
The story quoted faculty "spokesmen" as sources of Information,
recording them as saying that
present salaries ware insufficient
due to the rising cost of living.
Furthermore, the article stated
the spokesmen believed that, since
Increase in student fees were unlikely, higher salaries would have
to be covered by a grant from the
B.C. government.
Many faculty members interviewed by the Ubyssey refused to
make comment.
Dean J. N. Finlayson, head ot
Applied Science faculty, declared
he "had not been Informed of the
movement" and was unable to
Identify spokesman.
Dean D. Buchanan, Professor W.
Gage, and Dean Dorothy Mawdsley
were noncommittal.
Victims Of War
Receive ISS Aid
International Student Societies
throughout the world are actively
engaged in relief and rehabilitation
measures to aid those students left
destitute by the war, according to
Phil Evans, sophomore member of
the Students' Council of the University of British Columbia.
Evans states that the global objective of ISS ls 12,128,000 and
Canada will be asked to contribute
980,000. Each student in Canada
will 'be canvassed for a one dollar donation to the World Student'
Relief Fund.
As yet no active committee has
been set up at University of B.C.,
but as chairman of the future
committee Evans expects the campaign to get under way early in
the New Year.
Eastern universities already have
their campaigns in full swing, said
Evans, and student response is most

Military Officers
Will Visit Campus
Four officers, representing the
Navy, Army Airforce and Defense
Research, will visit the University of British Columbia from Monday, November 18 to Wednesday,
November 20. They are to conduct a survey of undergraduates
who are Interested in the services.
A general meeting of all interested students is to be held in
Applied Science 204 at 12:30 p.m.
on Monday. Following this, officers of the Inter-Service team
are to be available for Individual
interviews with any students desiring further Information.
The following letter from WiU
Walker was printed in the University ef Alberta's Gateway recently
Walker, a former student at the
U of A, is now attending the University of British Columbia. Here
are his impressions of this campus.
Being a loyal Alberta citizen,
born and weaned within sight of
the Med buildings and a graduate
of the U of A to boot, this character was prepared to look in at
the University of British Columbia with a highly critical eye when
he arrived to register here ln
He found a jostling community
of students out on Point Grey, all
going about the business of getting higher education in a determined fashion. The gates of thc
University were left wide open
and none were turned away who
had the basic academic requirements.
The student population is about
8,600, of which approximately 1,800
are women, and 4,000 are veterans.
The campus is more than a 45-
minute ride by street car and bus
from ilhe centre of Vancouver and
transportation is a difficult problem.
A number of students have
formed car pools and drive ln style
to the university. The parking lot
is an automobile dealer's dream-
more than an acre in extent and
studded with everything from
Model T to Cadillac convertibles.
The campus itself comprises 548
acres, including an 18 • hole golf
The Students' Union fees are
higher at UBC, but more campus
clubs require subsidization than at
Alberta. Some of the novel organizations include the Gliding and
Soaring Club which has three or
four gliders.
The Film Society, presents current movies every week, together
with the Women's Debating Club,
the Jazz Society, the Chess Club,
■end of •course, the Jokers.
Most of the students have their
noon meal on the campus and the
majority carry their lunches, which
they eat on the spacious lawns
(when it isn't raining) or in the
snack-bars and cafeterias.
The fact that most of the student
body is on hand at noon has made
pep meets popular. These give various organizations a chance to publicize their activities, and thus help
university spirit.
Top talent ls often on hand tc
entertain at noon hour, and stars
who have appeared so far Include
Bert Niosi and hia band, Thoma-
sina Talley, pianist and a group of
jive artists who were playing in
'Jazz at the Philharmonic" at a
downtown theatre.
The performances are free

fund are often solicited.

A feverish building ~cBmpaign
has been inaugurated and temporary army huts have been brought
as far as 350 miles to serve as
lecture rooms and labs.
A $5,000,000 permanent building
plan is well under way, with a
Nuclear Physics building and a
wing to the library now being
constructed. Other buildings are
on the agenda awaiting available
labor and materials.
The students couldn't wait for
the government to get around to
building them a gymnasium, so
have started on their own to raise
funds for a memorial gym.
UBC has its eye on the future,
and is building with the realization that it is going to remain one
of the larger universities in
For Alberta's sake I hope that
the taxpayers and their representatives smarten up and see At to
similarly expand the already overtaxed facilities at the U of A.
Students Favor
Political Clubs
KINGSTON, Nov. 15, (CUP)-
Majority of students at Queen't
University favor the formation of
political clubs on the campus, according to a survey conducted recently by the Queen's Journal,
student  newspaper.
Three hundred students were
asked if they thought politloa)
clubs would be an asset to the
student body.
Following are the results:
Yes   53.6%
No     37.7%
Undecided      817%
Commenting on the question,
Dr. Wallace, principal of Queen's
said he thought the campui
"should be open to every political point of view pledged to democratic principle."
"One of the purposes of a university is to give full information
and opportunity for discussion oi
public affairs," he added.

campus Wednesday.
Mr. Massey noted the many new
developments and remarked that

Contest and Gym Campaign.
These included the Honourable
J. S. McDiarmid, Minister of

wealthy aunt to marry Tallulah
Steadfast, sought a promised annuity of $150 which failed to be
written into the aunt's will before
her sudden death.
He maintained that the unfavor
able decision of the trial judge was
wrong before the law, and against
the weight of evidence.
Evidence presented by counsel
for the respondent supported the
original decision.
Grounds were that no valid contract had been established by the
aunt's promise, that there was no
precedent to the case, and that
there was not any evidence showing Titwillow had suffered detriment by the original ruling.

. . . campus beat
Five thousand eager Toties waited for more than an
hour outside the superb mausoleum known as the Library,
just to witness the most gammerous spectacle ever projected
on thin campus. We understand that the girls were left at
Sidney in a fog.
The main Issue is to build the gym to build the beauties to
build B.C. This is known as getting down to the bare facts
of the case.
Like all loyal Toties interested in the promulgation of
the aesthetic arts, we visited that famous saloon of ephemeral
delight known as the Armory, during a recent display of the
practical application of the uses of calculus. Since this is the
science of curves, we managed finally to understand the
meaning of the phrase "to read between the lines."
Foils at fifty paces, handfuls of wet spaghetti at Ave paces and other
lethal weapon* will be barred when flat-topped prairie girls vie with
nobby-headed B.C. select femmes for the grand title of ''Miss Sine of
1946." Descriptive adjectives refer to the terrestrial quantum to be found
in the candidates' respective provinces.
Over in Brock Hall we find the chief custodian of the never-burning
flreplecos wringing his hands with Frenzy, who tries to console her dear
mantel model with reminders that the Brock will someday hold a mammoth Christmas Party, Santa Claus and all. Just for now, he will have

The very good one is, of course,

still common among lawyers today) put me in mind, a little, of
Ben Johnsons "Volpone." But
this transcription though it haa
kept the humour of the situation,
seems to have lost a great deal
of the brave-coloured language
of the period.
The two others were written
more recently, "Solomon's Folly'
by Sidney Box in 1935, and "The

through the poetic texture oi

the villages of Ireland. Synge himself wrote, in the preface to his
"Playboy of the Western World,"
"ln a good play every speech
should be as fully flavoured
as a nut or apple, and such
speeches cannot be written by
anyone who works among people who have shut their lips
on poetry. In Ireland, for a
few years more, we have a
popular imagination that is
fiery, and magnificent, and

who write start with a ehanoe

of view I would quarrel with. A

heart weep, but even then it will
have something for them to get

are) the play can carry them. But
a bad play In the hands of amateurs Is too fearsome to contemplate.

When the extension is finished
it wil be round, firm and probably
fully packed.

the road in back of the main part
of the structure—the two to be
joined later on.
When new additions are built,
they will more than double the
cubic size of UBC's book sanctum.
New structures alone are larger
than the present building.
Tiie inside will be finished in
keeping with the rest of the library, although plans are for a
lighter colour than the older edifice. Modern two tone fluorescent
lighting fixtures are scheduled as
illumination for the Inside.
A two colour lighting system is
effected by use of fluorescent
tubes, one a whitish colour and
the other composed of an orange

On the main, or ground floor,
plans have been laid for a reserve
section with a capacity for 200
students, and ample stack accommodation.
Also on this floor are planned a
cataloguing department and two
seminar rooms. The main storey,
is actually a third embankment as
there are two stack levels underneath this.

and disease, and corruption that

the world has always gone, ths
selfish way that leads only to war?
No. Let us have our war Memorials aad be ashamed that we let

May I ask what sort of conscience you have, or do you really

McGUl's plans for the financing
of a War Memorial Gymnasium on
their campus, were explained by
Dr. G. G. Tidmarsh, president, McGUl Graduates Society, at a tea
given for visiting representatives
of the McGill Alumni Association
in the University of British Columbia's Brock Hall last Wednesday.
Dr. Tidmarsh said that the main
purpose of their trip was to visit all
the branches of the McGiU Alumnae Association in Quiada and the
United States, with the intention
of expanding their present graduate activity program.
Commenting on UBC, the presi.
dent praised the exceptionally fine
work done at the university. "The
setting out here l> beautiful," he
said, "and the architecture of some
of the buUdings is marveUous."
Among others present at the
function were'Mr. Eric Leslie, former president of the society at
McGUl, and his wife.
After' the tea, UBCs guests were
shown around the campus by two
members of the Alumni Association, Art Sager and Frank Turner.

only presents a definite figure on
the number of students planning
to enter medicine."

Once again, the end of another season has come. This
year however, is the first in a long while that a UBC squad
has hung up the strip after a season of American grid. The
'Birds played their last game of the season last night under
the lights at a little place called Forest Grove way down in
Oregon. But while the American squad from Pacific University was playing host to our Blue and Gold kids, our attention was turning to the current Miller Cup series now in
full swing in the English rugby circles.
The Miller Cup, for those who have not been initiated
to the Varsity version of the English game, is one of several
offered around these parts, and by the by, it is one of three
cups that Varsity has in its possession from last year's battles.
Three Cups Mean Good Rugger
The other two pieces of silverware that are being proudly
displayed in the showcase are the McKechnie and the Rouns-
fel Cups, both of which mean that Varsity played a lot of good
rugby last year.
Once again this season, the Varsity squad is leading the
competition a merry chase as they proceed to show them
how a team wins the Miller Cup. Much of the credit for the
way it has bean playing is due to coach Roy Haines who certainly knows his way around an English rugger field.
But than if Roy had no material to 'work with, it would
not matter how good he wu. Tha fact of the matter la thai
there are a great many smooth rugger players on the campus
this year. Many of them have performed for the Blue and
Gold before. Many are playing their first year with the
Varsity squad.
An All-Varsity Game Today
This afternoon though, we're due to gee both of Varsity's
rugger aggregations in action. Yea, it's the old UBC vs.
Vanity fracas, and it promises to be quite an affair.
Of course, it won't be any too easy for the UBC squad to
come up with a victory over their brother team for the simple
reason that no .other team in the race has been able to do
it yet.  But then, these kids are Just plain hard to convince.
The last time these two teams met, the UBC squad suffered their first defeat of the season. But that is just one
more reason for the UBC team to want to win this one.
Natch, the Varsity fifteen has the idea that they want a clean
report to present to poppa Haines at the end of the season.
This, hen, would be a very poor time to drop a game.
The New Rules Looked Good
Just talking about rugger "fifteens" reminds us of the
thirteen man battle that was tried last Monday. Words are
still flying in all directions concerning pros and cons of the
new type of ball. Actually though, besides the speed and
more exciting play offered to the spectator, the new ruling
offers a lot to the Varsity team in particular.
Always in the past, rugger has been a tough sport on the
players. Comes the beginning of the season and great quantities of hopefuls turn out for the first practice. After a while,
the teams have to be trimmed down to size. And how many
men are needed?  Fifteen and two spares at the very outside.
If you're one of the fifteen, swell. But who wants to sit
on the side-lines waiting for someone to break a leg so that he
can get into the game? It simply meant that many of the
boys who were interested weren't playing ball.
The Players Get A Break
So maybe this substitution is a good thing for the players.
It will mean that a team would consist of twenty men and all
of them would be reasonably sure of getting some time on
the field.
But even if the new rules aren't adopted, English rugger
is a great game to watch, Today, the kids will get another
chance to view their boys in action right otit here on thc
stadium field. Now we can sit back and concentrate on
cheering our boys through to another English rugger cup.
How about two tios 'til Tuesday?

Rwent discussion centering around the province-wide
War Memorial campaign has reached a point where editorial
comment on the Sports Page has been deemed advisable and
highly appropriate.
Throughout the $500,000 venture, the sports staff ef the
Ubyssey has duly appreciated the obvious benefits te the
athletic and the athletic-minded factions on the campus
(among which it must include itself) that would accrue from
a successful conclusion of the Drive, and its manifestation in
modern gymnastic facilities. We, of the Sports section, are
not attempting to conceal our satisfaction that the choice of
the War Memorial should have been a new gymnasium.
That a similar tribute to our war-dead could have been
attained under the form of other projects, we do not deny;
and we should be the last to assert that only a gymnasium
could have completely fulfilled the aims of a liviag War
Memorial, a memorial that would combine remembraswe with
However, we do wish to affirm in very plain terms our
conviction that—whatever its physical embodiment—the
primary aim of the current money-raising campaign is to erect
a tribute to the honored dead of two World Wars, lives which
constitute the eternal and irreplacable sacrifice of the Province of British Columbia.
The issue of how such a tribute was to be manifest has
been conclusively settled, ,and provincial reaction te the
choice of a War Memorial Gym has been wholeheartedly
favorable. The $25,000 grant by the Provincial Government
amply substantiates our claim. In short, the idea of a gymnasium stemmed from the dominant desire for a monumental
memorial; and gratuitous assertions that the contrary ba true,
not only disastrously impede the cause, but engulf it ia a light
that savours of rank commercialism of an ideal the Sports
page would be the first to defend.
Big Block Club Concerned
About 'Foreign' Sweaters
The presence of many high
school sweaters and athletic a-
wards on the campus this yeai
that have nothing to do with
University organizations hat
reached a new high. This practice
has always in the past been considered very poor taste but it has
not been necessary recently to
mention the practice or to take
any steps to combat li
This year however the practice
seems to be far more prevalem
than it haa for many years. One
of the main things that a freshman is asked to do when he comeb
tu Varsity is to devote all his activities to Varsity and forget that
he once went to a certain high
echool or was a member of any
particular group.
In an interview with Harry
Franklin, president of the Big
Block Club, Franklin stated thai
unless something is done by these
people who are wearing sweaters
and blocks that have nothing tc
do with UBC, the Big Block Club
will begin a campaign in January
to get rid of these blocks.
Franklin added, "It has been
traditional ever since 1913, when
the first of the Big Blocks were
given, that these letters be the
only ones displayed on sweaters
by students."
"It is in keeping e/ith traditioi.
and with the respect that should
Fraser Hoopmen
Defeat UBC Bees
A scanty crowd witnessed one
of the best hoopla tilts of tne
semester, as the Varsity Senior
Bees were edged out 28-26 by
Fraser's Thursday night in a
heartbreaker which was anybody's
game right up to the final whistle.
The same Bees bowed to Hodgson-Clark last Friday, 19-33, sc
Thursday's contest may be a
harbinger of better days to come,
as the whole squad really looked
sharp in every way.
The team now has its collective
eye on a playoff berth, and if the
boys continue to play their present brand of hoop, they may yet
hit pay dirt—but soon.

However, Franklin added that
there was no objection to a maa

by another University wSlch compares favourably with Intercollegiate calibre.
Franklin hit the nail directly
on the head when he stated,
"When a student enters university, he is expected to associate
his allegiance with the activities
of his chosen university, and to a
certain extent, sever his pre-
unlverslty ties in so far that they
may conflict with the tradition,
spirit, and unity of the Ualversity
of British Columbia."
The Big Block Clue, is the
highest recognition obtainable for
an athlete on the campus. This ih
in itself an excellent reason for
sport enthusiasts to turn out for
Varsity teams rather than outside squads. Every athlete has a
chance of obtaining the honour of
becoming a member of the club.
