New Meeting Called
ONE OF THESE GALS is going to become Homecoming
Queen. And who wouldn't like to come home to one of
these? They are from the various faculties on the campus
and are the cream of UBC's female population.
Martin Attacked For
"Wronging The People'
An increase in federal pension grants will be sought next
month according to Eric Martin provincial minister of health
and welfare.
The cabinet minister who represents Vancouver Burrard
in the provincial legislature spoke under the auspices of the
Social Credit Club in Physics 200.
~~ ~ At the end of the meeting Mar-
tin was flayed by John Collins,
Arts 111 for "wronging the people" and failing to administer
properly the Brannan Lake Industrial Institution.
Collins,   a   former   industrial
arts instructor at the correctional school, said that native Indian

9.30 when the Commercemen
who annually sponsor the drive,
will begin a full-scale invasion
of classrooms.
Canvassers will be divided into eight groups which hope to
cover the entire campus. Verbal permission for the blitz was
given the Commerce faculty by
President N. A. M. MacKenzie.
Objective this year is $1,000,

The Minister tried to evade
the question when it was fired
at him during the meeting. He
insisted that Collins meet him
at  the  conclusion.
In the meantime anxiety over
the issue Collins had aired had
reached a crescendo and cries
rose into the air asking Martin
to clarify the matter.

Jokers To
Add Color
A drive is now underway to
revive the Jokers Club:—objective is to raise general hell' and
havoc without any property
Organized during the influx
of veterans to the university
after the end of World War II,
the Jokers Club died around
1949, when its charter members
Spear-heading the revival are
Ginty Tripp, 4 Commerce and
Dance Club President, Don Morris, Arts, and another member
of the Dance Club.
Morris stated, "that the campus is too serious now and
needs some livening up."
A new constitution will be
drawn up when the club begins,
as the old one is outdated. An
organizational meeting has been
set for Friday, October 24, in
Arts 204.
Two council members have
been approached and are in
favor of the formation of the
club, stated Morris. He added
that already several ideas have
been raised for adding local
color to the campus. The new
club will not be anti-fraternity
as were the old Jokers.
The club will ask for a budget from the council but they
expect to lose half of it through
fines levied by the Alma Mater

Reform Committee
Struck; Council To
Ask For Revisions
By SANDY ROSS, U.B.C. Editor
Students' Council Monday night voted to hold a General
Meeting November 1 that may signal sweeping changes in
UBC's system of student government.
Council appointed a five-man
committee Monday to "make
recommendations concerning revision of the system of student
government at UBC." At the
November 1 meeting, students
will be asked to approve a constitutional change that would
enable the student body to approve or reject the committee's
recomendations by a referendum, instead of at another General Meeting.
In addition, the business that
would have been transacted at
the abortive October 18 General
Meeting will be dealt with. The
October 18 meeting was nipped
in the bud six minutes after it
began, when Aggie President
Bill Davis challenged the quorum as a protest against an "unsatisfactory" Aggie budget allocation.
The "old business" at the November 1 Meeting will include
approval of AMS Treasurer Al
Thackray's mildly controversial
1956-57 budget.
The sudden passion for governmental revision came when
Councillors decided that students
would never again be in a mood

Golly I'm Excited
isn't the weather just awful?
I sure hope it doesn't keep up
like this till Thursday, 'cause
all you people will^ get just
Golly, I'm getting excited.
When I think it's just two days
away, well, you know, it's like
going out on your first date,
I'm that nervous.
But Frankie keeps telling me
that if anyone can make it, I
can, so I just keep hoping that
everything will turn out real
well, and that all those nice
people (I've so many letters
and everything) won't be disappointed.
Jeepers. I almost forgot to
tell   you.     The  most  tiirilling
thing has happened to me, and
I will just burst if I don't tell
Over the weekend (at 1,24
a.m. PST Sunday) Prime Minister St. Laurent phoned me
and said he certainly hoped
I'd make the lilypond. He said
that all the cabinet ministers
were holding up session until
1 p.m. Thursday and that they
all hope I'll make it.
And my idol, dear cuddly
Wacky Bennett (he's the Premier of British Columbia, my
home province) has offered me
the position of personal secretary, but I know I'm too young
and inexperienced for that
super position. (I'm only 14
and never been kissed, tee hee).
Golly, is training ever getting hard. Frankie doesn't
think I'm taking the swim seriously enough, but gosh, he does
not really know how much it
means to me. Nothing ever
has, and I know nothing ever
will, mean so much to me.—
But, you know, sometimes
when I'm  'way  cut there, and
the rain is getting in my eyes
until I can hardly see, I wonder
if I'm doing the right thing. I
mean, is it sensible to wrack
my body through tortuous
waters just to know that I can
do it?
Golly, if I listened to all
those dreadful old fogies, I'd
never make the swim Thursday. But, you know, there's
something right down there
that keeps telling me that I've
got to do it, just got to.
Gosh, Sandy's terrific. Sandy
is editor of The Ubyssey and is
just being peachy to me. You
know what he's going to do for
me after the swim? He's taking me to Edmonton for a
whole weekend, all expenses
paid. Golly, I think that's terrific.
I want to give everybody
some advice. I think that you
all should do the thing that
you've always wanted to do,
just like I'm doing the swim.
I know everybody wants to do
something, and I just want to
tell them to do it.
Golly, I've got to get some
sleep  now.    'BYE. THE UBYSSEY

What's In A Name?
For the benefit of those few deluded souls who can
still believe the Liberal Party retains any vague pretentionss
to liberalism, we offer the following: "Peyton Place," a new
novel by one Grace Metalious, has been barred from importation into Canada by Revenue Minister James McCann.
The Liberal Minister took it upon himself to personally pass
judgement on the controversial.new book; he ruled that it
falls within .ihe scope of Tariff Item 1201, which prohibits
importation of books of an "indecent or immoral character."
Now we haven't read "Payton Place," and we have
no particular desire to do so. But we are nevertheless struck
with the anomaly of a Party which still calls itself ''Liberal,"
allowing its chief tax collector to decide what books Canadians can and cannot read. Among liberals such a situation
would seem intolerable. Among Liberals, (note tho vast distinction) it will pass without comment.
According to Carlos Baker, Chairman of Princeton's
English Department, "Peyton Place" is a rather lousy book.
Mrs. Metalious exercises that tired theme of rape-seduction-
abortion-behind the cloak-of-small-town-respectability pretty
nearly to its limits, and by so doing has managed to achieve
third place on the best seller list.
, Despite the fact that in this case, Dr. Baker's qualified
judgement, and Mr. McCann's properly questionable literary
iudgement happens to coincide, we're still disturbed. For if
Mr. McCann banned "Peyton Place," he could well ban
Hemingway's "Across The River And Into .The Trees," or
"Ulysses," or any number of other books, with just as much,
or a* little cau.se. If tens of thousands of Americans are allowed to judge "Peyton Place" for themselves, we see no
reason why Canadians should be denied the same opportunity.
So please, Mr. St. Laurent: cither pull our Revenue
Minister off the literary beat, or change the name of your
Party, and appoint a Minister For thc Protection of Canadian Morals. If this is the current version of "Liberalism,"
we'd much prefer ttie genuine, lower-case article.
Red Feather
We can fondly expect a number of annoyed mutters from
various professors tomorrow, right after a small army ol
Community Chest canvassers invade their classrooms, cans
a-jingle, in search of charitable contributions. Professors, we
have found, hate to be disturbed. It derails their students'
train of thought, they think.
As far as we're concerned, these disgruntled prolessors
haven't got a log to stand on. In practically all cases, they
won't bo saying anything vitally important, and most students won't be listening anyway. Not at 9:30 in the morning, they won't.
The cause of the interruption, the Community Chest
canvassers, are supporting what pressagents like to call a
"worthy cause." And the cause truly is worthy, and vitally
So bring your money tomorrow morning, und give until
it aches. Four bits is the kind of nice round figure we'd suggest; that shouldn't hurt too much.
Faith Is Necessary,
If Mixed With Doubt
I for one have become very
tired of hearing "faith" bandied
about as such a cure all for
the ills of mankind. This is
particularly so in the light of
the fact that the brand of 'faith'
prescribed, the blind dogmatic
type, is and has been one of
societies' most potent poisons.
At no time in history was progress more retarded than when
man was honored with the privilege of believing without
Modern Evangelism, ignoring or ignorant of the lessons
of the past, has as its every
premise the necessity of never
doubting. To do so, and to attempt to test validity is condemned ns the work of the
devil - • - and it must be a very
powerful devil, for apparently
whenever an investigation is
carried out, the devil seems to
Favourite ammunition for
stopping a protest dead seems
to be the new testament quotation that we must become as
a little child in order to become
one of the chosen few.
The particular asset of little
children favorable to adults is
thereupon deduced to be their
That open-mindedness is an
asset I have no argument
against. Decidedly it is the
pre-requisite for creative
thought. Nothing new, either
out of the obscurity of the unknown or the conflictions of
the known, would be uncovered, except by accident, —
without an open-minded approach. A study of the lives
of the great men in every field
of discovery reveals an uninhibited curiosity as foremost in
their mental makeup. Indeed
the man who is alleged to have
made ihe afore-mentioned statement, seems to have met his
death because he questioned
and differed with the dogma
of His day. Who can doubt
that Christ would have lived
if he had only conformed? How
then can it be suggested that
such a man whose searching so
altered  the  thinking    of    the
world, would deny other men
the right to do the same? What
man believing    he    was right
would fear investigation?
The scriptures do not support any conclusion he would
as deny. Proverbs says outright "The fool believeth every
word. The wise man looketh
well to his going."
Does that suggest undoubting
faith? Moses commanded the
trying of every prophet, and
Paul warned against psuedo-
scientists. Throughout all the
scriptures runs the theme —
be wary — be convinced.
How then does this need to
be sure fit the statement to be
as little children? I think that
becoming as open-minded and
unbiased as a little child in our
investigations, fits perfectly,
just so long as we do not become as gullible as little children. I think that is what Christ
had in His mind, and perhaps
it is truly the only rock upon
which a lasting faith may be
built. It is the rock upon
which science is built.
Letters To The Editor
Editor. The Ubyssey:
Dear  Sir:
At noon Thursday, October
18, there was plenty of activity.
The downpour didn't stop a
healthy number of fellows from
showing up for the first basketball practice of thc season.
Two relays were scheduled for
Intramural swim eliminations.
The usual number of hangers-
on and spectators were milling
around, so the gym was far
from empty. Over in Hut A,
the Pep Band was blowing with
Arthur Delamont. E.I.C. was
canvassing engineers in the
main hall of the Engineering
building. I could go on and,
oh yes, there was something
about an A.M.S. meeting in the
Armouries I think.
Such was the mental picture
before a large number of students Thursday noon. These
events could possibly have been
fitted into other times if ample
notice of the General meeting'
had been given. The Ubyssey
provided neither thc publicity
nor the spark by printing such
negative phrases as '•routine
nature," "might be fiery." and
"quiet and non-controversial"
thc day before the meeting.
Perhaps the Ubyssey, like a
number of other groups on
campus, thinks general meetings are obsolete. Admittedly
Council has made some provision for students to attend
Council meetings but the time
and the available space1 are
limiting factors. It we can't

them to appear before,

Applied Science II
Dr. Margaret Mead about how
uncertain and insecure thc future is for us all; we appear to
have no control over the forces
shaping our society, and our
way of life today is leading us,
rather in the manner of a large
and ferocious mastiff taking
his mild-mannered master for
a walk every evening. When
the master of the dog realizes
the absurdity of bis position,
he can do one of four things:
He can carry on as he has
been doing, letting the mastiff
take him out every evening: he
would then be known as a conservative or a liberal.
He can destroy the dog, but
of course, then he is left without a dog at all; he would then
be called a fascist.
lie can try to change the nature of the dog, but of course
a mastiff will always be a mastiff; we would then call him
a reformer.
Finally, he can exchange the
mastiff for a more tractable
animal whicli he can fully control; he would then be a socialist.
Yours faithfully,

Editor, The Ubyssey:
Dear Sir:
I was led to believe, by numerous notices, that the EUS
smoker was to be held Thursday. October 2o, but judging by
the remarks and behaviour of
some engineers at Friday's
Mixer, some people must have
been mistaken.

couldn't the few overgrown

Editor, The Ubyssey:
Being anything but an Elvis
Presley fan myself, I nevertheless would like to disagree violently witli your editorial on
the subject.    Here is why:
1. You ignore the fact that
it is a matter of opinion what
one considers as rock and roll.
Thc original rock and roll was
around long before you and I
were born and it probably still
will be very much alive when
Presley will not even be a
memory. What he is producing is a rather perverted, westernized form of rock and roll
witli whicli it has only the after
beat  in  common.
2. I agree with you that
he does not have too much of
a musical voice. But I still can
notice the difference between
a toilet with hiccups and his
voice. His stuff certainly has
not much to do with music, and
nothing at all with art. But to
watch and to hear him is nevertheless amusing if nothing
else.    What's wrong with that?
3. Here is my main point. I
think Elvis deserves a medal
for channeling the frustrations,
energies and maladjustments
of many of our teenagers in a
direction where they do no
harm. Take this rock and roll
craze away from them and they
will engage in much more destructive activities. A cartoon
in one of the local papers, published the other day, illustrated
this point very cloati, A
bunch of teenagers sta. is in
front of a theatre which cancelled a rock and roll show.
One of the teenagers says to
the manager: "We know that.
you won't play rock and 1.
That's why we are going to
bust up the joint."

Raven Squawks As
Pique Pulls Its Tail
"Raven ... is here to stay."
Len Davis, Raven business manager made this statement in a
letter to The Ubyssey condemning a recent Ubyssey feature
story on Raven and Pique, two
campus magazines.
"In a recent issue of The
Ubyssey, Rae Haines, following
a well-established Ubyssey precedent, gave the campus some
very inaccurate information,"
Davis went on.
Davis pointed out that Raven
and Pique have separate editorial boards, but at the beginning
of the year Raven editor Doug
Howie approached Pique editor
Rae Haines in the hope that they
could work together as closely
as possible, for the benefit of
both enterprises.
"This offer was refused," said
Davis, "to our disappointment,
and so this year the magazines
will each go their own way, with
a consequent decrease in operating efficiency, and increase in
expense for the AMS."
Davis charged that the Pique
editor "is not qualified to make
the statements he did, about
Raven policy," and added, "I
wish he would refrain from doing it."
Raven will not publish this
fall, but has two issues scheduled for the spring term.
Pique editor, Rae Haines,
termed the letter the "epitome
of immaturity." He added that
he was not going to reply to it
and that he felt
"trying to build up
these tactics.

Students' Council Monday
night declined to endorse a
NFCUS - sponsored insurance
scheme which would offer
'cut-rate' life insurance to
UBC students.
The plan, proposed by Premier Insurance, involved selling term insurance to students at a reduced rate. It
was turned over to Dr. Leslie
.Wong of the Commerce Faculty and after a thorough examination, he expressed the
following criticisms:
1.    As  University  students
are preferred risk, the plan's
rates are not extraordinarily
low in comparison with other
2. Every student needs
personal financial planning
and one plan cannot conceivably cover all necessities.
3. The  whole scheme may
be merely a means of obtaining a "captive group" to sell
more lucrative permanent insurance to after graduation.
In the general discussion
that followed the reading of
the report, Don Jabour, AMS
president, pointed out that
"the only person needing term
insurance is the married student."
Council, after consideration,
decided that they could not
approve the scheme. Any
council action does not effect
the sale of this insurance, but
in Jabour's words, "we owed
responsibility to students to
examine this policy, and we
won't endorse the sale of it."
Rate Rave
Moliere's Tartuffe, hypocrite
supreme, walked the stage of
the Frederic Wood Theatre last
week as fresh and as villainous
as ever.
It is remarkable how unstaled
this study of a hypocrite remains
after 400 years of existence, and
more remarkable still how it
could have ever prompted the
charge of being an attack on the
Roman Catholic Church. For
while it is clearly an attack on
the scoundrels in the church, it is
not an attack on the Church and
to say that the one is equivalent
to the other is obviously false,
In the Frederic Wood Group's
production which ran Tuesday
through Saturday, the real target of Moliere's barbs could be
seen clearly and in the flesh. By
dress and by direction Tartuffe
is made to expand himself on
stage into the odious and crawling creature that he is, until God
and good King Louis XIV are!
ready to disaprove of him.

Brockington's stature helped in
that one could not help but remark on the incongruity of the
fresh ruddy cheeks and the muscular calves with the professed
life of penance and ascetism that
he claim to pursue.

The production was remarkable not only for its Tartuffe,
but for the unity and coherence
which it displayed. The other
characters were all homogenized in the spirit of the farce
and few if any of Moliere's lines
are lost.
Domine, maid of the house,
and undoubtedly the most impertinent servant in all literature, was played with verve and
gusto by Gay Scrivener; with
perhaps a little too much gusto,
because when the time came to
be serious, she did not quite
bring herself down to it.
Orgon was as unbelievably
foolish as Moliere wanted him
and Cleante, the man of reason,
was as maddeningly reasonable
as a man should be in a farce.

more favorable to aceptance of
the changes which Council has
long advocated.
It was felt that grass-roots dissatisfaction with the present system was at an all-time high,
since Councillors agreed most
students considered the October
18 General Meeting a fiasco.
The Council-appointed committee will be independent of
Council influence.
The Council-appointed committee need not limit its recommendations to revision of UBC's
General Meeting system. It may
declare open season on other aspects of student government as
well. Membership on Student
Council for instance might be
revised and/or enlarged.
Suggestions made at the Student Leadership Conference at
Camp Elphinstone early in October indicate widespread dissatisfaction.
Conucil's choice for chairman
of the vital committee is Stan
Beck, last year's Ubyssey Editor,
present Chief Justice of Student Court, and NFCUS Chairman, had not accepted the post
at press time.
Other members of thefommit-

will be: EUS President John

At the Student Leadership
Conference at Camp Elphinstone
early this month, dissatisfaction
with the General Meeting system, and with the membership
and representation of Students'
Council was voiced, It is expected that views aired unof-
fically at the Conference will
be reflected by the Reform Committee.
If students decide at the November 1 Meeting to permit the
Reform Committee's recommendations to be put to a referendum vote, the ballot will be
worded in a readily approvable
The Committee's recommendations will be listed in point form,

those they reject. Only the recommendations which a two-

approve will become law.

perhaps the most enchanting,
perfect, amusing, realistic and

noisy reality of life in a small
French town and disappears into his own private worlds of

Director Clair has achieved
the impossible—a fairy tale

Give Books

A fund raising drive by members of Vancouver's Ukrainian
community culminated this
week in a presentation of $500
worth of Ukrainian books to the
University of B.C. Jibrary.
The book section of the local
Ukrainian-Canadian community
headed by Rev. S. P. Symchych,
4555 Elgin, a UBC graduate,
presented the books to University President N. A. M. MacKenzie.
J. H. Syrnick of Winnipeg,
editor of the weekly paper The
Ukrainian Voice, and members
of the local committee took part
in the presentation at the University library.
The University library welcomed the new books as a valuable addition to its section of
Slavonic materials. The University of B. C. has Canada's
most noted department of Slavonic Studies.

Future For
"Rapid expansion of the casualty and fire insurance industry
has resulted in an unprecedented number of job opportunities
for those interested in careers as
actuaries," according to Albert
Z. Skewing, secretary-treasurer
of the Casualty Acturial Society.
Actuaries are analysts charged
with keeping insurance companies in financial balance, by
setting premiums and rates.
Advancement in the Acturial
profession depends in the main
on the passing of eight examinations set by the Society of Actuaries. The first three are a
language aptitude examination,
a general mathematics examination, and a special mathematics
examination covering probability and statistics.
UBC permits a student who
takes honours in mathematics
(actuarial option) to write the
first two exams at the end of his
second year, and the third exam
by the end of his fourth year.
After graduation, he can follow
a syllabus prescribed by the Society of Actuaries, in preparation for the remaining exams.
With passing of each exam,
and the resulting increase in
status, comes an increase in
salary. Earnings for a B.A. degree range from $3,000 to a
maximum salary of $10,000 or
more for a good Actuary.

Bloodless Boors
Are We Dry?
Final statistics of the 1956
Fall Blood Drive reveal the poorest showing UBC students have
made in recent years.
Only 1713 pints of blood, or
86% of the quota, were donated.
In last year's fall drive, an « 11-
time high of 1753 pints was
reached, even though total enrolment was just over six thousand. This year's enrolment has
passed the 7,500 mark, and is
still rising.
Net percentage of blood-donor*
among this year's total-enrolment
was just 23%, down a full five
percent from 1955.
Forestry was the only faculty
even to come close to its quota,
with 97%. Physical Education
was second with 65%, and Theology was a distant third at 55%.
Runners-up, all with less than
half their quota fulflled, were
the following: Engineering, 49%;
Commerce, 43%; Nursing, 45%;
Pharmacy, 41%; Agriculture,
Medicine, 37%; Home Economics,   33%;   Social   Work,   33%
Arts, 32%; Education, 28%;
Graduate Studies, 20%; Law,
17%; and Architecture, 8%.
General feeling among those
connected with the Blood Drive
organization is that they were
"let down" by the students.
Waged On
A plea for a clean campus was
made Monday by Walter Gage,
Dean of administrative and in-
terfaculty affairs.
Dean Gage urged students to
avoid littering the campus with
the remains of lunches, newspapers and milk cartons.
Out-of-date notices should be
removed from bulletin boards
by the organizations concerned.
Defacing of walls, furniture and
equipment was also mentioned
by the Dean.
He also warned that tamper-,
ing with fire equipment and getting on roofs was forbidden.
Dean Gage suggested that
loudspeakers on the campus
should be limited to the noon
hour: from 12.30 to 1.30 and
their use should be minimized
as much as possible.
(Continued From Page 1)
his first public announcement
of a proposal he will take to a
national conference next month
asking for an increase in federal
pension grants.
A $20 increase to the present
pension rate will be sought. The
boost will be shared on a 50-50
basis by governments at both the
federal and provincial levels.
If B.C.'s health minister is successful, any person will be eligible for a maximum old-age pension benefit of $80 a month.
He said that the department
of health and welfare will be
spending $60,000,000 this fiscal
"And that would be enough
to keep every person on the
campus going with beer and convertibles for the next five years,"
Martin added.
The bookkeeper-turned-politician turned to Social Credit's
critics and their charges of "funny money." He remarked that
the provincial government is not,
in fact, suffering from any debts.
But he added than any money
which had been borjpwed and
of which the taxpayers are still
liable for its repayment was
obtained through special agencies
such as the Toll and Bridge
Authority and the B.C. Power
Health Minister Martin retold
that when the Socreds took office in 1952 they were faced with
an $85,000,000 deficit incurred
by .previous governments.
He said that the Social Credit
regime has wiped all the red out
of its ledgers except for $1,000,-
000 still owing on Patullo Bridge.
Federal Socred leader Solon
Low is scheduled to speak on the
campus next month following a
visit being planned by Attorney-
General Robert Bonner near tht
end of October.

We Stand
Editor, The Ubyssey:
Several misconceptions seem
to have arisen, both on campus
and off, in regard to the current Fall Blood Drive. I would
like to correct a couple of the
more glaring errors before they
gather too much force. First—
the drive committee is not, and
was not intending, and never
has intended (note the emphasis) to supply donors with kisses,
either from Red Cross Nurses,
or other campus cuties.
What donors obtain on their
own initiative is of course no
concern of tho committee.
(Never let it be said that we
discourage initiative.) I know
that this kissing business is
rarely taken seriously on campus, out two of the larger down-
tow'': newspapers developed the
idea—and were going to publicize it—that clinic donations
had fallen practically to a standstill because the kissing booth
had been abolished.
This might make good reading, but it would not be precisely  accurate.
A hasty comparison of current figures with those of past
years might show this clinic
in an unfavorable light, whereas the fact is that, with your
customary support and cooperation, this drive could easily
be thc most productive yet.

One year ago today, the UBC Thunderbirds football squad
crept back into town from Spokane after absorbing a 48-0
loss to one of the forty-odd undefeated college football squads.
The victors were none other than the Whitworth Pirates.
However, it was a different story on Saturday, as the
Bucs crept out of Vancouver after gaining a humiliating 21-12
win over the fired up 'Bird squad at Varsity Stadium.
The 'Birds started out in their
usual kick, stumble and fumble
pattern in the first quarter after
they fumbled a fourth down
snap on a punt. Pirates took over
on the Varsity 19 and in seven
plays, two of which were called
baek, Warren Lashua skirted
right end for the major. Babe
Bates converted to give the Bucs
a 7-0 lead.
Pirates scored again in the
second quarter when quarterback Don Price jump-passed to
Dick Brahams in the end zone.
Bates converted to give Whitworth a 12-0 lead.
Females Attack
Bird Soccermen
(Ed. Note. Following the General Meeting last Thursday in which the womens' athletics failed in their campaign to raise their budget allowance, a screaming mob
of women terrorized the mens' shower rooms. Here is a detailed account of the incident written by Ian Todd, now
recovering in hospital from the sordid attack.)
The sweat-laden atmosphere of the Stadium dressing-
rooms was temporarily disrupted by the pervading odor
of feminine perfume last Thursday evening, when sixteen
members of the 'Birds soccer team were molested in their
sanctuary by several (hundred) muscular female athletes.
of Miss Lanning.
They were unavaliable for interview, but the soccer players
were only too glad to give
their views on the unprovoked
attack. Little Ken Ferrier, spitting out two teeth, stated that
"the big one sure throws a mean
right hook." Centre-half John
Cervi, rubbing several lumps on
his head, commented at length
on the supposed ancestry (censored) of the girls, and left-half
Frank Iacobucci announced that
"those silly (censored) should be
locked up!"
Incidentally, and rather luckily, considering the shape the
players were in, both soccer
games over the week-end were
cancelled due to the poor condition of the city parks.
The evening began ordinarily
enough with the usual tough
work-out on the Mclnnes Field
followed by a nice hot shower
in the previously undefiled Stadium Locker-room. The usual
shower-room chit-chat followed,
very peacefully and orderly for
a time, including a very instructive chalk-talk by the coach.
Interruption and utter chaos
occurred in a matter of seconds
as a preliminary skirmish was
opened by the attacking forces
of screaming women. Several
tear-gas and smoke-bombs, followed by numerous large firecracker bombs reduced the orderly dressing-room to shambles.
In a half-naked condition the
semi-asphyxiated athletes stumbled from the poisonous atmosphere to fresh air, violent hands
were laid upon them, and several
muscular female shot-puters beat
them about the head and shoulders with umbrellas, purses, and
College Surveys.
Leaving the sixteen broken
and bruised bodies in a bloody
heap outside the Stadium door,
the Amazons screamed off, chant
ing, "male athletes are inferior."
Meagre revenge was gained
by the fitba' men, for after a stiff
battle the sixteen of them managed to capture and subdue three
of the monsters who had returned to the scene of their crime
to gloat over their victory.
The three behemoths, even
under intensive interrogation re
fused to give forth any information as to the cause of the scurrilous   attack.
Kangaroo Court quickly convened, arid dealt immediately
with the captured wenches. Sen
fences were imposed and carried out immediately, despite
violent resistance. The ice-cold
showers did much to reduce the
flaming temper of the female
athletes, and very little further
resistance was given by them as
they were pushed, dripping, out
into the night by the courageous
soccer players.
This reporter recognized two
of the three captured Amazons:
one is a strong-woman from the
Faculty of Phys. Ed., and the
other is a weightlifting protege

Then it happened. The 'Birds
started to play like they have
never played before.
Donn Spence intercepted a
Ron Lockhart pass and went to
the twenty-five. Minutes later
Jack Henwood went over tackle
on a dive play from the three
yard line for the 'Birds first
Evergreen Conference major on
home ground.
Late in the second quarter,
'Birds drove down to the Whitworth 12 sparked by a long run
by Jack Henwood. In three pass
plays and three time-outs the
'Birds failed to score. The last
play of the half saw Roger Kronquist throw a goal line pass to
Wayne Aiken. The ball was
caught by a Whitworth player
right off Aiken's back.
The third quarter was a tough
one for the 'Birds as they only
had control of the ball for four
plays. Bucs drove down to the
'Birds two on the ground and
Bernie Rakes, keeping the pattern went over right tackle for
the major. Bates converted to
close out the Whitworth scoring.
Both teams battled in mid-
field for the remaining quarter
of the game until Jack Henwood
playing his best game of the
season, intercepted a shoe string
Ijjass and ran for sixty five yards
for the final score.
In other Evergreen Conference
action, the undefeated College
of Puget Sound Loggers came
back from a 12-0 half-time deficit and whipped the Central
Washington Wildcats 29-12. Eastern Washington stormed the Pacific Lutheran College 27-7.

For the first time in the history of the Mens' Lower Mainland Grass Hockey League, UBC
has entered three teams. An increasing interest in the game has
made this possible, and also a
contributing factor in the increase of foreign students who
have formerly played the game.
Last year the two entries from
UBC finished first and second
in the seven team league.
Ail three teams will be coached by Dr. Malcom MacGregor
who has successfully coached
Mens' Grass Hockey at UBC for
the past three years.

were cancelled due to wheather
conditions which forced the closure of all city parks.
