 di,
Canadian
campus
By Barbara Jones
While thousands of European
students struggled to restore life
to their bomb-gutted universities,
Canadian students last week sat
back smugly in their undamaged
Ivory towers r.nd half-heartedly
acknowledged their debt to their
continental brothers-in-books. The
International Student Service offered the opportunity for these
Canadian students to repay their
debt for peaceful campi, an opportunity which, in too many cases,
was refused.
The classic example of this Isolationist indifference came from the
University of Manitoba where,
under pressure of a few posters,
about |800 was extracted. Students
frankly admitted they "didn't want
to worry about other university
students when trying to get a new
university ln  Winnipeg."
Queen's University, traditionally
renowned for the enthusiasm of its
students began its I.S.S Campaign
with a costume dance and a general meeting at which thought-
provoking films of China's and
Europe's war-haggard populace re-
suited in a successful tag day. But
tdo little co-operation and a too
late publicity campaign forced the
postponement of tha IS.S. Carnival.
Other reports were slightly more
encouraging. At the University of
Alberta where the campaign was
getting under way, an Interfaculty
campetition was announced with
an award for the most generous.
An Edmonton-wide tag day, circular letters, skits in the rotunda
ot the Arts College were planned
to lead up to the I.S.S. climax,
The Club 400 Ball.
The University of Montreal nck-
nowledged no specific I.S.S. campaign but, Instead, adopted the
Univesrslty of Caen,, France,
whoch was completely demolished
during the war. Some 500 food
parcels and over a thousand dollars had already crossed the Atlantic from the students of New
France to the students of Old.
Following .the efficiency trend of
the times, McGill University conducted a Combined Charities Drive
which asked $2 per student. The
highlight of the campaign week,
the Athletic Festival, netted the
amalgamated project a sum sufficient to cover the I.S.S. and the
Red Cross.
Beaver-busy Mount Allison University organisers were set to
spring the gates on an early March
drive that was to net European
brethren 12,008. The agenda included stag dances, a tag day and
a formal.
Two Ontario universities, slightly
tinged with pride, renewed concentrated efforts to further their
functional friendliness. London's
University of Western Ontario had
surpassed the original fifteen hundred dollar objective and was already well on its way towards
smashing the eighteen hundred
mark. A mock "Information
Please" program with four professors as masterminds met favor with
the student body as did the novelty
idea of an admission and exit
price. An auction, tags, posters
kept the student interest alive as
did the London Free Press and
downtown theatres.
A newsreel I.S.S. appeal spotlighting University of Toroton's
Chancellor Cody was warmly received not only by Torontonlans
but also by theatre-goers in Lont
don, Kingston and Montreal.
The University of Toronto went
one step farther however. It ren-
tred its drive around a typical
co-ed contest which the lipstick-
conscious Toronto press gobbled
up. Students dug down, purchased
tags to gain them admittance to
the fun-musi-girl packed elimination program. Social directors
grasped the opportunity to organ- .
ize the first edition of the long-
awaited All Varsity Revue, a composite of various faculty productions. Other features staged: a
jazz concert featuring a topflight
campus combo, a fraternity-sponsored Anchor Ball and refugee
speakers.
I.S.S. organizers, for the most
part, kept their thoughts and disappointments to themselves. Observers noted that men and women
who had experienced Europe's
plight were more liberal with their
donations. They also noted a
slightly selfish attitude among the
average Canadian university student and paused to wonedr: "Is
Canada slightly high-hatted?"

VANCOUVER, B.C., TUESDAY, MARCH 12, 1946
NO. 56
McLean Heads
New Bureau
ESTABLISHMENT of a University Employment Services office
was announced Saturday by Dr.
N. A. M. MacKenzie acting on a
recommendation of the joint
Student-Staff Committee on employment. '
Major J. F.' McLean, Veterans
Councillor, was appointed supervisor of the new bureau and set
up his offices in the Armouries
Monday. The new supervisor
stressed the fact that the office
will be in continuous operation
throughout the year to service
employers and students. Provincial wide In scope, it will grow
along the lines of employment
bureaus set up by other Canadian
universities, notably Toronto and
Queens. As the office expands lt
is planned to include an occupational testing bureau under Dr.
W. G. Black, also a Veterans'
Councillor.
"For the present," said Major
McLean, "emphasis will be placed
on summer employment rather
than permanent employment, but
eventually we will take over thw
greater part of graduate and
undergraduate student employment placement."
The office will work in conjunction with present employment
organizations in Commerce, Engineering and Applied Science.
The office was created in response
to the needs of a large number
of students at UBC and the increasing realisation among employers as to the desirable type
of employee to be found on tha
campus.
Dr. MacKenzie, commenting on
the formation of the Bureau said,
"I feel that it is of very grave
importance to help the students,
both veteran and civilian to find
employment in summer work and
on graduatidn. Unless employment is assured, a number of
students will not be able to con*
tlnue their courses. However, in
view of the statement made by
Hon. C. D. Howe two or three
days ago that' there is liable to
be a shortage of labour, our
problem seems to be one of locating employment and of placing
tht: right people in it. This we
will do through the Employment
Services Office,"
The Student Employment Bureau will continue to handle registration for summer work at its
Brock office between 11:30 and
2:30 daily.
"Students should register foi
their sumnvar employment as soon
as possible," urged Major McLean.
"The volunteer Interviewers oi
the Student Employment Bureau
are doing an excellent job but
they will have to close the office
in about three weeks to devote
some time to study,"
GOOD WORK!
JOHNNY ALLEN, chairman of
the UBC Visitors' Day committee,
Is being hailed on the campus this
week as the unofficial campus
"man of the year."
Hordes of anonymous and signed
letters praising Allan's work, who
waa responsible for the entire organisation of the Visitors' Day
program, have come Into the
Ubyssey office and many people
have approached the staff members
of the Ubyssey to express their
appreciation of Mr. Allan's work.
The editors of the Ubyssey wish
to take this opportunity to offer
their congratulations, although belated to Mr. Allan for his professional organization job.
Cafeteria Will
Not Cash Cheques
CAFE MANAGER Frank Underhill requests that students do not
attempt to cash personal cheques
in the Cafeteria,
"We do make exceptions occas-
sionally, and cash the odd veteran's or other government cheque,
but it's not our policy and we
don't want to make a practice of
it," says Underhill.
He adds that there have been
several cases in the past of personal
chequec cashed in the Cafeteria
subsequently dishonored by the
banks upon which they were supposedly drawn.
OBVIOUSLY RELUCTANT to shell out $3.49 for the Jokers Ball at the Commodore next
Thursday are Bill Duff and Jack Patterson, wno are trying to escape the clutches of pretty
coeds Norah Paine and Marta Rolston. But trust in the powers of a woman. The boys will
be going to the ball. Doubtless the fact that their money will be given to the Gym fund
will reconcile them somewhat. And the mad time to be had by all those who "Dare to
Come" will definitely make them forget the p rice. Tickets can be obtained from all members of the Jokers if you can find them. Jokers, that is). Featured at the dance will be every
thing from Jokers to "Wimmin".  By the wa y, the lad under the sign is David S. Fraser.

ISS COLLECTS CLOTHES
STUDENTS IN EUROPE and China benefitted from old
clothes collected on the UBC campus. The ISS Committee
and the Gamma Chapter of the Phrateres are co-operating
on an Old Clothing Drive starting immediately and lasting
two weeks.
The need in Europe and China
ie greater than ever. European
students have had very little in
the way of clothes in the last
seven years.
Ex-servicemen are urged to donate their service kit of which tney
have no present need. Any clothing will be welcome, either civilian
or service.
Students who have more personal
interest ln sending old clothes can
send  parcels  over   to  individual
people. They can turn in their
names to the ISS Committee in
the Alma Mater offce.
The ISS Committee will meet In
Arts 102 Wedensday at 12:30.
UBC has only collected a little
over fifty percent of their quota
which is set at $3500.
ISS is the only international organization which concerns itself
solely with the welfare of students
of all races, religious denominations or nationalities. It promotes
universal solidarity based on common interests, aims and achievements. ISS representatives had
access to prison camps and prisons
during the war helped prisoners
continue their studies. In China
they provided destitute students
with food and medical supplies.
At present ISS is aiding students
of Europe who have nothing but
destruction to return to. ISS is
also reconstructing universities
and maintaining a sanitorium fcr
tubercular students,
The appeal should receive a gratifying response from students of
UBC if they stop to think of their
fellow students in Europe nnd
China who must study under the
most deplorable conditions.
Facilities will be provided on
the campus for receiving old
clothing.
Berkeley Square
Opens Tonight
"OPENING NIGHT" for th.
Players Club presentation, "Berkeley Spuare" is this evening in
the auditorium at 8:15. It will be
a five night running performance
on the campus. The play will
then bj taken on tour throughout
the  province  and to Seattle.
Principal roles in the cast are
taken by Art Hill, playing Petei
Slandish and Norma Bloon portraying Hebn Pettigrew. Other
lead parts in the play are takei
by Beverly Wilson as Lady Anne,
George Baldwin as Tom Pettigrew,
and Joycv: Harman playing Kate
Pettigrew. Also taking roles in
the play are John Nieuwdorp, Jim
Argue, Art Alexander, Don Mc-
Dougall, Betty Peyman, Annie
Forrester, Grace Tuckey, Don
Wilson, Joan McCallum, Trish
Rogers and Carol Aikins.
Cost Of Huts To
UBC Is Tabulated
FIGURES on the cost of moving
former army and airforce huts
und putting them into use on the
UBC campus, have been released
by Dr. G. M. Shrum, chairman
of the emergency committee.
Purchase price from War Assets
Corporation varied between $200
and $500. Moving them ran between $300 and $750, depending on
their original location. Huts were
secured from camps in Point
Grey, North Vancouver, New
Westminster, and Boundary Bay.
By the time a hut has been renovated, partitioned, and had chairs
ond a heating system installed, it
is worth in all $1500 as a lecture
room. Those huts that have been
further equippedt o serve as labs
are listed at $2500.
UBC Coeds Debate
At McMlnnville
A WEEK tonight three UBC
coeds will debate in McMlnnville,
Oregon against three students from
Linfleld College.
Harriet Hochman and Rosemary
Hodgins are travelling to Oregon
for a return debate with Lotti
Meves and Mrs. Carolyn Andrews
who visited here on February 27.
Adding further strength to the
UBC team will be Joan Fraser.
Tne three girls will leave Vancouver Sunday morning, debate
Tuesday night and arrive home
Thursday.
"British Colonial Policy in India"
will again be the topic with the
sides unchanged. Though UBC
won unanimously in Vancouver,
the debate in McMinnvllle will not
be a decision affair.
Marks Given Out
During Summer
THE RIGISTRAR'S OFFICE
announced today that exam results for lower classmen will
remain the unknown quantity
until well Into the summer.
Graduates will have their results
on the 15th of May following thc
meeting of the the Senate.
This arrangement means students will have no way of knowing
for sure that they must study for
sups. The reason for this delay
stems from the increased enrollment at the university. An extrb
burden is thrown on the profes-
sors.
Phoning the Registrars office will
be of no avail, it is likely that
the office will have three shifts.
TOTEM PICS
STUDENTS WHO have not
picked up their mounted Totem
photographs at Russel Studios,
445 Granville Street are requested
to do so at once.
J. C. Walberer, Totem photographer has been unable to open
his office door for the past month
and has been kept alive by his
assistant who passed food ln
through the transom.
Unfortunately die assistant has
disappeared under the ever-increasing pile of photos along with
a retoucher who was engulfed last
December.
Unices someone removes the
pile of pictures Walberer will
starve to death. The Society for
the Prevention of Cruelty to Photographers requests immediate
action.
Haggart Appeals
Code Decision
RONALD HAGGART, second
year Arts student, went before
Students' Council Monday night
to appeal the Thursday decision of
the Discipline Committee, which
charged him with violating Section 12, Article 3 of the AMS cod*..
A statement issued to the Ubyssey Monday by the Disciplin*
Committee declares "In reporting
news which he received in the
strictest confidence, Haggart vi-
oluted Section 12, Article 3 of the
AMS code which in effect says—
'every student using the university
crest or representing UBC ln an>
way shall be responsible to Students' Council for his conduct
which may ba held to affect the
university.
Haggart has written a story
dealing with consumpaon of liquor
which was publisned in the February 22 issue of a downtown
newspaper. The matter had been
discussed Informally at a meeting
of the Discipline Committee, and
the reporter attending from the
Ubyssey had been asked by that
body to treat the information as
confidential.
Haggart was fined $2.50 by the
committee and his AMS pass was
taken from him. This bars him
from all student activities.
Commenting on the case, President N. A. M. MacKenzie stated,
"As I understand it, Haggart has
two capacities: one as a student,
the other as a reporter."
"The students have the same
control over Haggart as they
have over any other student."
WUS ELECTIONS
THURS. IN AUD
WOMEN on the campus are
asked to attend the WUS elections
Thursday noon in the Auditorium.
Elections will be held come Gym
drives or Joker Days, stated Nancy
Pitman, president of WUS. The
offices of Vice-President, Secretary and Treasurer must be elected.
All nominations must be handed
in before Thursday to the AMS
office.
Jokers Hold Big
Celebration On
Thursday Night
BY AUDREY GARRARD
SEVERAL HUNDRED STUDENTS who have never
had a chance to act unnaturally will get their last chance at
the Jokers Ball on Thursday, March 14. Whether you are
mad as a March hare or simply harebrained, or even just
simply brained the Jokers can make you feel right at home.
So much so that you will probably be touched for every
penny you have in addition to the admission price of $3.49.
         PATRONS
Patrons for the dance will be
Ahkoond of Swat. Contrary to
the prevalent rumour that the
Ahkoond of Swat is not, he is. It
is true that he strove, as has been
reported, to disregard the message
stern, but he ahkoodn't.
There will be door prizes to be
presented by which ever master of
ceremonies can first lay his hands
on them. The unhappy winners
may be obliged to keep these
prizes but this point has not been
decided on as yet. It is felt in
some circles that merely to rob and
beat up the customer should be
enough entertainment for one
evening.
NO FORMALS
Ace Joker Dave Hayward has
announced that any male who
dares to appear in formal attire
will be burned at the steak. However for patrons who do not care
for barbecue, lettuce will be served
during the Intermission.
LOTS OF MUSIC
Music will be provided by two
orchestras. Dave McLelland will
wow them at one end while Ole
Olson will play in opposition at thu
other end of the hall. One end
will play sweet and the other will
swing it and vice versa. Who
ever wins will be allowed to go
home early without any prizes.
Mr. Hayward has expressed it
as his most sincere wish that those
attending the Ball with leave their
coats and wallets in the cheque
room as he, Hayward, expects to
have a few spare minutes in which
to rifle pockets. He has expressed
it as his opinion that anyone who
goes out of the Commodore with
enough ready cash for street car
fare will deserve to go home in
a taxi.
Sextet Reviews
Election Rules
DURING A prolonged three
hour meeting of the Students'
Council last week, a motion was
' made by Hugh McLeod that election rules on the campus be looked
into with a view to revising them.
Statements were obtained from
Treasurer Garry Miller and USC
Chairman Hugh McLeod.
A six-man committee is being set
up to review the question and will
meet early this week. It is composed of David Blair, Tony Scott,
BIU Gill, Bob Morris, Dave Tupper and one repersentative of the
Faculty of Applied Science. Sidney Flavelle and Nancy Pitman
will act as advisers to the committee.
Treasurer Miller said that with
the tremendous increase in the
enrollment of the student body, the
old system of election campaigning
ls outdated.
The method of presenting the
candidates to the electorate by
means of posters being put In conspicuous places does not reach the
proportion of students that It did
formerly.
Hand-bills are apparently the
only effective alternative. AU UBC
election literature for distribution
Is banned at present. If this ban
is lifted, the question of committee
finances arises.
McLeod said that a solution
might be to have the number of
posters permitted each candidate
raised from the five it stands at
present. He said that the length
of election campaigns might be
increased.
Miller stated that strict regulations would have to be kept of
the number of hand-bills printed.
This could only be done If each
election committee transacted its
business through the AMS office
with the same printer. A set expenditure for printing of five
dollars is thought to be sufficient
for each candidate. This system
prevails on the campus of the University of Toronto.
CECIL VIP
Birdmen Try Out
First Glider Sun
FIRST test flights of their new
glider were made Sunday at
Boundary Bay airport by members
of the Thunderbird Soaring and
Gliding Club.
Club President Frank Woodward
who made the first 30 second
flight, reports that test results
were "very successful."
Henry Zitko, instructor, and
Mike Skubay also soloed.
Later in the afternoon other
members were given "ground
tows" as part of their preliminary
training.
The UBC birdmen expect to
have weekly flights at Boundary
Bay airport, weather permitting,
according to Woodward.
At the present time, the club is
constructing another glider similar to the one it already has.

UBYSSEY PHOTOGRAPHER
PASSED AWAY THURSDAY
THE DEATH of Cecil Everett
Yip, on Thursday, March 7th,
meant the loss of one of the best
liked and most willing worker*
engaged in research at the university. Cece was an active menu
ber of the photography staff of
the Publications Board, which
activity he was engaged In up to
the time he caught the cold that
developed into pneumonia and
finally resulted in his death.
He was engaged in research
work dealing with film emulsions.
Dr. Smith of the physics department speaks very highly of his
experimental work on a new type
of infra red plate developed by
Eastman Kodak  Co.
Cecil was president of the University Amateur Radio Association at the tinre of his death, and
since the early thirties he has
operated his own private shortwave radio station, VE560, which
is known all over America.
Cece was associated with the
university for a nine year period,
during which L. was also a member of the American Radio Relay
League.
PARADE NETS
$163 FOR GYM
SORORITY MEMBERS participating in the Float Parade held
Thursday afternoon, February 28,
in downtown Vancouver, collected
over $163 in aid of the War Memorial Gymiasium Fund.
The Parade Committee states
that it wishes to thank all sororities for their co-operation in the
drive.
l 	 THE UBYSSEY, Tuesday, March 12, 1946, Page 2
EDITORIAL PAGE
IN MEMORY A FRIEND
Staff members of the Ubyssey and the
Totem are mourning the death this week
of a good friend and fellow "pubster," "Cece"
Yip who died Thursday of pneumonia. It
all started when "Cece," a veteran staff
photographer, took cold while covering a
sports assignment for the Totem.
Yip had a flair for hobbies, and he was
contented pottering around physics labs,
photography darkrooms, and radio stations,
He channelled his interests so they would be
of benefit to the students. He was the initiating genius of the University Amateur
Radio Society and has worked for the Publications Board for two years.
"Cece's passion for research and recognized ability in the field of physics led him
to be entrusted with the most "sacred"
equipment in the physics department. He
was acknowledged by instructors in that department to be a brilliant student.
Although 33, "Cece" had a kid's passion
for gadgets. His beloved camera and amateur radio sets were seldom out of his sight
for any length of time.
Touchingly enough, "Cece's last thoughts
were for the Totem. Shortly before he died
he sent his brother out to the Publications
office with a roll of undeveloped film so that
he might meet a Totem deadline.
We'll all miss Cecil Yip, one of the most
cheerful and competent co-workers the
members of the Publications Board have
ever known.
RESPONSIBILITY OF THE PRESS
The practise of sniping is a poor one, and
when indulged in by a newspaper it wastes
the time of the reader unless he be one of
the few who revels in that sort of thing.
However, it becomes increasingly imperative that some clarification be offered to
the students by the Ubyssey on the recent
action taken by the Discipline Committee
against a newspaper reporter, and their
reasons for doing so.
A section of the downtown press, obviously fancying itself as a "protector of the
right," has seized upon the incident, snatched up an editorial sword, and has gone
charging gloriously off to the crusades to
slay the dragon of student government
allegedly "paying lip service to democracy"
but "bordering dangerously on Fascism."
The only thing resulting from the battle is
smoke screen, and although the whole affair
is very distasteful and would have been
ignored by this newspaper, the resultant
publicity has been so much more distasteful
and exaggerated that, distasteful as the subject may be, it must be reviewed correctly
for tiie first time.
The whole affair, originally a domestic
matter, began when a Ubyssey reporter
"covered" a meeting of the Discipline Committee. Information regarding supposed
liquor consumption, at a campus affair discussion of which was not on the agenda of
the meeting, was brought to the notice of
the disciplinary group during the hearing.
The Discipline Committee, which has aa
much rght to "in camera" sessions as any
other court in Canada, informed the reporter
that the information was confidential. He
reported this to the editor-in-chief in the
hearing of three downtown correspondents,
students of the university and staff members
of this newspaper. They were requested to
treat the information, which they overheard,
in confidence.
The following day the confidential information appeared in a downtown news
paper and the downtown reporter responsible was summoned before the discipline
committee for reprimand because he had
violated the "in camera" confidences of that
court. He twice refused to appear until he
he was charged under the nebulous Article
12, section 3 and fined $2.50 along with deprivation of his AMS pass.
Discipline Committee made a great mistake in this regard. Although a student
court such as we have at the university has
every right to reprimand a student for
violation of "in camera" confidence, it cannot legally fine a reporter for lacking ethics.
The fine slapped on the student for violation of Article 12, section 3, has unfortunately given his newspaper ample opportunity to wave the hackneyed newspaper banner of the "freedom foueth estate" in their
front and editorial pages and the impression
has been conveyed that the reporter was
"intimidated" because "he wrote a news
story that might bring bad publicity to the
University of British Columbia."
This is not so. If the story had concerned
future purchase of tiddlywink sets the confidence of the Discipline Committee would
have been violated to as great a degree.
The Ubyssey itself has never hesitated to
run stories "which might bring bad publicity to the university." But the editors
choose to respect the confidence of student
courts and student leaders. In doing so we
do not feel as if we are being "intimidated"
and victimized by "Fascist" tactics.
Under the heading of "Bad Publicity"
the newspaper runs an editorial concluding
"This (Discipline) Committee would be
showing better judgment if, instead of putting reporters on trial, it asked one of its
history professors to conduct a seminar on
the evils of censorship."
Instead it might be more fitting if newspaper reporters conducted a seminar on the
evils of violation of confidence. Although
newspapers are above all laws they are not
above all responsibilities.
The    \^aSSail    Bowl by Norm Klenman
THE RIGHT SPIRITS
THE DESIRE to go places and see things
is like a chronic illness; every now and then
the delerium of adventure hits us, and only
a diversion off the main highway to see the
strange and unique can cure it.
Such was our condition Sunday night
last when Friend Laurie led us to a Spiritualist meeting.
We arrived slightly after it began to find
about thirty people, most of them on the
far side of 60, congregated in a small room
singing hymns. One of the ladies presented
us with hymn book and response cards, and
we joined in. Led by a very lovely soprano
and accompanied by a piano, the hymns
proved most enjoyeble.
The next hour or so was accupied with
a lecture by a slim, trim, and prim lady of
fifty who wore her white hair and black
dress with dignity. She told us that evil
thiughts are harmful because they radiate
vibrations to the astral world, from which
those same vibrations will someday return
to us. The best and happiest life, she added,
was one lived according to the Golden Rule.
The spirit world, she said, definitely existed; it is there for anyone who is ready to
believe. Moreover, a great many persons
(she quoted herself and many of her
friends) possess the faculty of contacting the
astral plane, to exchange greetings and advice with the departed.
After the lecture, she and one of the
other ladies at the head-table each took a
short turn contacting spirits, describing
them, and delivering messages to different
members of the audience.
Though we sensed nothing out of the
ordinary present in the room, the ladies
assured us that several inhabitants from
beyond the veil were standing close by.
Among these were mothers, friends, relations, two or three Indian chiefs, a Hindu,
a Spanish Senorita, and W.C. Fields' double.
She began by asking if anyone knew
"Alice." The name "just came" to her head,
she explained. An old gentleman's face
brightened. The seer had hit pay dirt, as
they say in mining circles, and she swung
her pick-axe again with a message from
Alice to the effect that the old gentleman
should watch his health. The old gentleman thanked her.
Gazing about the room, she spotted
spirits everywhere, delivering of each a description and from each a suitably vague
message. To another old gentleman of
about 70, the clairvoyant said "Your mother
is standing beside you; she is wearing a
grey dress; she says that you should be
careful of your kidneys." The old gentleman just grunted, but several ladies sniffed
into their handkerchiefs.
Spotting us near the door, the madame
said she saw beside us (1) a deceased airman
of 25 (2) a child of six who may or may not
be a relation (3) a white-haired, white-
bearded gentleman of 50 whose first name
may or may not have been "Jimmy." With
a little digging, it might be possibel to associate these spirits with people we've
known, but none of our departed seem to
answer the descriptions.
Yet the general opinion of the onlooker
must be both fair and dispassionate. We
searched for evidence of insincerity and
faking, but could find none.
On the other hand, no one can deny that
Spiritualism offers a good Christian moral
and ethical code, though this column does
not presume to judge such matters. The
happiness on the faces of the people who
received messages from friends, relatives,
and Indian Chiefs, however, could quite
easily justify the cult even to skeptics.
Whether or not these ladies really do
contact and chat with spirits, we cannot say.
But we concede this much: they put on a
darn good show.
People Being What They Are
By JACK FERRY
WHEN SEVERAL of our fellow
columnists sounded off recently on
reduced street-car or bus fares for
varsity students, to be . followed
closely by the Legion request to
the B.C. Electric, we suspected
that it might be helpful, and perhaps more to the point, to look
into our transportation problem's
background.
The findings somewhat convinced
us that despite the desire to ease
the strain on the student pocket-
book, our desires being as keen
as anyone In this respect, those
* *
THE UNIVERSITY circuit has
always been the ugly duckling of
the bus lines and is far from being
the "milk run" as it was described
by one of the other columnlrts.
When UBC opened at Point Grey
in 1925 the provincial government
asked the B.C. Electric to run a
bus lis into the area. With a 2000
student registration and a very
sparse resident population in the
area in those day* the company
entered into the agreement reluctantly.
Between 1925 and 1935 the line
lost |158,000, most of which was
made up by the government.
It had been the experience of
the operators flat the run was
economically justified only between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.   So, for
* *
THE DIFFICULTY lies in the
fact that even during the morning,
peak period there are times when
several buses are idle, bringing
in no revenue but piling up considerable overhead. The campus
line is unique among the city'*
transportation systems in that it
has but one great, money-making
peak during the day, whereas all
the others enjoy two. To give us
service we require in getting to
lectures at al! hours and to provide busis for special events in
the evening means considerable
weakening of the so-called gravy.
Considering these angles, plus
the fact that university students
and faculty already enjoy a 40%
reduction   from   the   regular   bus
* *
THE LEGION request is based
on their survey of student-veterans' costs, which in many cases
are not covered by the |60 or $80
government grants. It seems to
us that the most logical hope is
to support their campaign for a
boost in grants, In that way cever-
who were once again casting covetous eyes at the utility corporation's fabulous profits had wee
again, in a very real sense, missed
the bus.
Their demands upon the big.
bad beastly electric company had
taken the form of two suggestions:
namely, (1) to cut out the
three cent bus fare by extending
the street-car transfer privileges,
or (2) as in the case of the Legion
plea, granting collegians half-fare
rates similar to those enjoyed by
high school students.
* *
several years after 1935, the government ran its own buses after
hours and on high days and holidays. Unfortunately the Victoria
treasury suffered even more under
this set-up, so they once again
got the private utility to operate
the whole show.
Until the war years the line lost
money steadily. Only with the
expanded residential area and the
recently bulging halls on the campus has it made any profits. Students whose most vivid memories
of the buses are of those t-arly
morning trips when standing room
is a desirable acquisition may be
surprised io find that last month
the operating profits, before taxes,
were only $688.
* *
fares, makes it rather obvious that
free bus rides off a street - car
transfer is hardly justified.
Furthermore, it is understood
that should the line make any
great profits the provincial government would feel understandably
righteous in demanding a share
to offset the losses it made up in
the past.
The plea to grant half-fares on
the street-cars is meeting with thc
response from the company that
if grown men and women, as
college students, want a reduced
transportation rate they would
thereby be justified in asking for
reduced rates for every other good
or service offered for sale In
Vancouver.
* *
ing the transportation costs.
Admittedly that would do nothing to help the non-vet under-
grdautes. Their problem ls a
general one that can hardly be
solved by asking for further
preferential treatment from the
transportation company.

encouraging the various Departments with their displays, advising
the Carnival Committee, preparing
programs, organizing sufficient
transportation, providing parking

One has only to look at the program to realize the immense job
it was.
There has been no other day
like it in the history of UBC. Mr.
Allen has laid a firm foundation
for future successful Visitors'

congratulate Mr. Allen for a job
well done.

UBC COPS THE CUPS
WHERE'S THE SILVER POLISH, ma? It seems that
this is another one of those years for picking off the silverware at UBC. Somebody's arm is going to be worn out after
polishing this year's bag of trophies and cups before adding
them to the collection in the library.
Already the Thunderbird basketballers have snatched
the Pacific Northwest Conference's hoop crown, while the
English rugby stalwarts have held onto the McKechnie Cup
and annexed the Miller Cup again this season.
Although the soccer squad had trouble in the Imperial
Cup final for the second straight year, the UBC ice hockey
team is making up for this by battling into the Intermediate
finals in this, their first year of competition for several years.
And then there was the case of the Hardy Cup. It was
a tough fight financially, but UBC brought the Canadian
Inter-Collegiate grid trophy back to the British Columbia
campus for what appears to be the last time.
Wanted: One Grid Coach
This brings us to the football problem that faces UBC
today. Now that the gridders have turned south for competition in the Pacific Northwest Inter-Collegiate Conference,
they need a coach.
This problem was the object of much discussion during
recent meetings of the Men's Athletic Directorate, and this
body has finally decided that the Physical Education Department should obtain a first rate grid coach when it expands
next fall. ,
However, this means that spring training will have to
go by the board. It appears that UBC's grid experts will
have to get into top shape on their own before opening a
three-week practice session in September. The first game is
slated for October 4.
Domino Hoopsters Cool
Turning to basketball, we find that the Thunderbirds are
in a somewhat peculiar position. Although they've proven
themselves to be one of the top teams in this part of the continent, they are stuck without any actual playoff.
Coach Bob Osborne decided that the next best thing
would be a series with the Victoria Dominoes who will
probably represent British Columbia in this year's Canadian
playdowns.
However, the Island hoopers met Bob's propositions with
extreme coolness in a spontaneous conference after last
Saturday night's cage battle between the Dominoes and
Lauries at King Edward Gym.
Maybe the UBC casaba stars should seek something
bigger. DePaul isn't busy right now. Perhaps they should
be invited here. If they can't come, what about a Dominion
Inter-Collegiate playoff with Assumption College of Windsor,
Ontario?
Cleaning Off the Cuff
Dominoes are strictly against a benefit series for the War
Memorial Gymnasium Fund. . . It's at times like these that
pro teams show their colours. . . Some people are like that,
but not the people of Powell River... I'll testify personally to
their hospitality. . . And their enthusiasm is something you
can't parallel anywhere in Vancouver. . . For instance, their
high school, which has only 400 students, raised more than
$150 for the UBC Memorial Drive. . . Altogether, the Powell
River folk came forth with $400 for the one-day stand . . .
Incidentally, the Thunderbirds won both games there, 52-23,
at noon, and 70-35 in the night game... Sandy Robertson was
the only one who missed the trip. . . Orchids to Jack Short,
the voice of the races, for the real spirit of giving. . . When
sent two tickets for the final McKechnie Cup tilt along with
a request to announce the Jokers' Horse Race, Jack not only
did a splendid job for free, but also sent a cheque in payment
for the two ducats. . . The UBC Golfers put on a fine show,
too, and raised another $200 for the War Memorial Fund.
.. . The Ice Hockey team gets the next chance to contribute,
playing the Nanaimo Clippers in a two game series. . . Puck
fans are reminded to get their tickets early for the second
game which will be played in the Forum tomorrow night.

THUNDERBIRD splashers came
through with a 3-2 win In their
hard fought water-polo game with
the VASC Saturday night to
counteract the dunklngs received
of late at the hands ot their better-

COMES FROM BEHIND—Stan Leonard, smooth swinging
pro golfer who was featured in Sunday's exhibition match at
Shaughnessy, had to come from behind to stop the sharp-
shooting Varsity team of Dave Dale and Ormie Hall on the
last hole. Proceeds from the successful show amounted to
$200, all of which will go to swell the UBC War Memorial

UBC Tops loco
In Fitba' Finale
UBC's SOCCER TEAMS split
their games over the weekend, as
Varsity was beaten 6-1 by Collingwood at Collingwood Park, while
UBC defeated loco 6-1 at loco on
Sunday.
Collingwood Park was the scene
of the Collies' sweet revenge af
they swamped VarsTcy in retaliation for being knocked out of
the Imperial Cup three weeks ago.
The Red-shirts were on the ball
most of the game and they worked
hard for the well-earned win on
their own home grounds.
STEWART STARRY
The game started fast with Collingwood getting the first goal
right after the opening whistle.
They got another one during the
first half and came back In the
second stanza to score four more
counters.
Collingwood goalie Dick Stewart
(also a UBC goalie) had himself
a shutout in the dying minutes of
the game, but Pat Harrison was
fouled in the penalty area and
the penalty shot was made good
by Armand Temoin. This goal
saved Varsity from a whitewash,
and the game ended 6-1.
UBC finished their league schedule in great style at loco as the
team showed rare form In dumping the Oilers on their home
grounds. In so doing, Gordy
Shepherd got four goals to raise
his total to 20 and establish himself
as the leading scorer in the 'B'
Division.
UBC FINISHES THIRD
This time goalie Dick Stewarv
missed his shutout in the fin*
minutes of the game as loco go.
the first goal on Lex Henderson's
miskick. From here on it was
UBC's game, and the scone would
have been doubled except for the
many off-sides committed by UBC.
Shepherd and Oorrle scored in
the firjt half, and Shepherd got
three more plus Jack Cowan's goal
to bring the total to six. This
leaves UBC a good third In the
league standings.
Players of Varsity and UBC are
requested to be in the Stadium
South locker room for Totem
pictures at noon today. Practice
is slated for this afternoon at 3:30.
Closest of the three matches
found Stan Leonard and partner
Harry Winder barely eking out a
victory over the student team of
Dave Dale and Ormle Hale. Dale,
after sparkling birdies on the fifth
and fifteenth, muffed a short chip
shot on the last hole while Leonard came through with a hot four
to take both the hole and the
match, one-up.
COLK LOW MAN
Fred Wood and Dune Sutherland had no soft touch in taking
the measure of Dick Hanley and
Bob Plummer. The pro twosome
barely managed a two-and-one
victory on the seventeenth green.
Had the Varsity pair not messed
up their chances on the 10th hole,
the contest might have been closer.
Wood, in spite of putter trouble,
carded a 70.
Benny Colk, Langara's dappei
pro, led the pack of 12 divot fiends
with a sharp 68 that completely
baffled UBC's final pair of swingers. Almost unaided by partner
Ernie Brown, Colk had enough
shots in his bag of tricks to keep
long-hitting Maleolm Tapp and
partner Hans Swinton at bay as
the pros took a five and four
victory.
Dave Dale led the student divot
squad with 75. Here are the complete results:
Wood    70;   Hanley  76
Sutherland  78;   Plommer .... 76
Winder   77;   Dale   75

Intermediate B finals, Tookes
handed Varsity's Inter B hoopsters
a heart-breaking 44-42 defeat.
Varsity fell apart in the third
canto, outscored 21-9 by a hard-
fighting Tooke squad. Varsity
rallied valiantly to outscore their
opponents 15-4 in the last session
to fall short of their opponents by
a mere basket.
Sutherland and Walker, with 13
and 14 points respectively, were
the main factors in the Tooke
victory. Forsythe was nigh man

VARSITY! RUGBY SQUAD
CAPTURES MILLER CUP
BY FRED CROMBIE
VARSITY'S TORRID Milled Cup team raced on to a smooth 11-0 victory over the
highly-touted Meraloma fifteen at Brockton Point Oval Saturday afternoon to bring the
coveted Miller Cup back to the confines of the British Columbia campus for the third
straight year.
With team captain Don Nesbit
providing the spark, the 'Birds
showed a definite edge in territorial play throughout and with
the addition of a few breaks would
rout.
NESBIT SCORES ALL
Nesbitt, who has been playing
fine rugby since the start of the
season, turned in a brilliant performance as he was responsible:
for all of Varsity's points.' Including McKechnie Cup games as
well as Miller, the young kicking
star has amassed a total of 65
points since early October.
The game started rather slowly
with neither club organizing a
serious threat but at the 10-minute
mark, Sammy Caros of the Meralomas was called for an offside
while Varsity was pressing for a
try and Nesbit made the kick
good ior three points.
With five minutes remaining in
the first half, Nesbit again entered
the scoring column on a spectacular solo effort which was begun
on his own 25-yard line.
VARSITY DEFENCE HOLDS
From a loose scrum, the Varsity
captain booted the ball down tht
side line and, following up his
own kick, went 75 yards to score
the first of his two trys. He also
kicked the convert to Increase his
total to eight for the half.
Meralomas put on a determined
bid to get back into the game but
the Varsity defence was impregnable and the 'Lomas were turned
back again and again.
It was during one of these bids
for a score by Meralomas, that
Varsity scored their final try. A
three-quarter run by 'Lomas was
stopped just short of the Varsity
end zone as Nesbit Intercepted a
pass and he went the rest of the
way to score, side-stepping two
would-be tacklers in doing so.
Roy Haines, acting as coach in
Dan Doswell's absence, inserted
himself into the lineup at five-
eights and did a fine job.

The first game is slated for the Island City with tomorrow's
contest scheduled for the Vancouver Forum with all proceeds
going to UBC's War Memorial Gym Fund.
ROYAL CITY PUCKSTERS
SQUARE PLAYOFF SERIES
VARSITY'S HOCKEY SEXTET got a bad game out of
its system Sunday night, but it cost them the chance to sweep
the Lower Mainland playdowns in straight games, as the
New Westminster All-Stars showed a complete reversal of
form to whitewash the Students. 10-0.
Coach Morris Lambert's stalwarts were jinxed throughout the play although a barrage of rubber pummelled at
Roy Milne, the Royal City custodian, it sailed harmlessly past
the cage with disconcerting frequency.
The initial canto was a nip-and-tuck affair after Smith
hoisted the disc ito the Varsity cordage at the one minute
mark, and the boys from Point Grey were only one marker
shallow at the end of the period.
STRONG FRASERTOWN DEFENCE
The All-Stars added two more in the second session,
within seven seconds of one another, to widen the lead to 3-0.
Led by Lloyd Torfason, the Students pressed to shatter the
shutout shingle, but their efforts dissolved as the Frasertown
crew defence combination held the lead intact in brutal
fashion.
Eddie Dougherty and 'Zab" Zabrousky paved the way
for the convincing count, netting three and two goals respectively, as the All-Stars scored almost at will in the final period.
The Intermediate Semi-Final now stands even-stephen,
the Thunderbirds having won the first 4-2. The final tilt is
slated for Thursday night and the winner heads for Vernon
to contest the provincial crown.
GRASS HOCKEY XI'S TRIUMPH
ANOTHER LARGE crowd was
on hand Saturday to witness two
matches played in the City Grass
Hockey League. The first game,
bringing together the East Indians
and UBC, resulted in a 3-1 win
for the Blue and Gold. The other
match featured the Oldtimers
against Varsity and ended up with
a score of 2-1 in favour of Varsity.
That these weekly games are
doing a lot to improve the brand

Vancouver   was   clearly   seen   on

Saturday. All four teams turned
in a performance which was at
times up to pro standards. The
experience of some of the older
members plus the speed and dash
of younger team members combined well to produce good matches both for onlookers and the
players.
EVEN TUSSLE
Between the East Indians nnd
UBC it was an even tussle all the
v/ay. With a 1-1 score in the first
30 minutes 'by the hands of Art
Hill for UBC and Karnail Singh,
the East Indian centre, the half
ended even-stephen. The flnal
half saw Art Hill going in again
and picking up two more goals on
short corner plays. East Indian
defense was particularly tight with
their left back performing miracles.
Karnail Singh and Buchan Singh
were both in form playing their
usual good game for the East
Indians.
Against the Oldtimers the Varsity team were lucky to bring off
the 2-1 score. While the first half
was fairly even, the Oldtimers definitely had the edge ir. the second,
and most of the play was around
the Varsity net. Both goals for
the University were shot by Norm
Tupper who scored the last one in
a spectacular 50 yard dash. Don
Currie, team Captain and centre
half, was really a bulwark o^f defence and support throughout the
game and his opposing centre.
Leader, matched up well against
him.
OLDTIMERS  HOT
During the final 30 minutes, with
the Oldtimers pressing Varsity and
threatening all the time, Milluish
scored the one goal for the visit-
ttam. Despite the age of some of
the Oldtimers, the incredible speed
and drive they display is a great
example to the Varsity players,
and if UBC turns out a first class
Hockey team to play in Dominion
wide matches, any success they
may have will be due to the experience they have gained in the
city league.
VANDALS KNOT
HOOP PLAYOFF
IDAHO VANDALS sprang back
into the Coast playoff pictdre
Saturday night when they handed
the University of California Bruins
a 28-23 setback to tie up the series
at one game each.
After dropping the first tilt to
the Berkele aggregation the night
before by a 52-37 count, Coach
Babe Brown's hoopmen came up
with a solid-checktng performance
which completely shackled the
Bruin forward wall for most of
the second game on the California
hardwood  at  San Francisco.
