Veterans' Charges
Denied At U of M
Charges made recently by a delegation of veterans that the medical faculty at the University of
Manitoba had not lived up to its
commitments to ex-servicemen
hove been denied by President A.
W. Trueman.
Expressing dissatisfaction with
the manner in which selection of
students wishing to enter first
year medicne was conducted, the
delegates presented themselves
before Mr. Dryden, Minister of
Education, September.
They claimed that poor marks
made by veterans prior to enlistment were being taken into account, contrary to the assurance
given previously by Dr. A. T
Mather, Dean of Medicine, that
those marks would be disregarded
by the medical selection board.
Replying to the charges Jn a
press release October 1 to the
Manitoban, official student newspaper, Dr. Trueman declared they
had resulted from a "complete
misunderstanding" of what Dean
Mathers had said.
He quoted Mathers as having
made it clear that selection of
students would nave to depend to
some extent on over all academic
.'.tending and that this situation
had been accepted "without exception" by all students interviewed.

According to Grant Livingston,
president of Branch 12, the legion's
purpose is to provide a square deal
insurance for ex-servicemen and
women, and to preserve the spirit
of comradeship and service built
up during the war.
"We, as student veterans, regard
ourselves as the most privileged oi
personnel under Canada's rehabilitation scheme, and as such we believe ex-service students attending university owe a debt both to
the country and to other veterans,''
he said.
He pointed out that the Legion
provides means for assuming this
dual obligation, promoting Interest and security of our country,
and safeguarding this feeling for
"We cordially invite, and heartily welcome all ex-servicemen

Anyone who had any doubts that the
University would get back to any normal
state this year can now rest easy.
Normalcy is just around the corner, for
the Student Council has started its annual
Clean-Up Campaign.
Requests have been sent to the Administration to have more rubbish receptacles
plajced around the campus, and various
Councillors have been appointed to see that
something more than old Ubysseys goes into those receptacles.
That "something more" might include
the lunch wrappers, the cigarette boxes,
the discarded billet-doux, and, we shudder
to think, the old soft drink bottles.
If the University of British Columbia
didn't have such a magnificent site in the
first place that even old army huts couldn't
spoil it, then there wouldn't be much worry
about the litter of rubbish. That would be
merely adding a shameful cover to a unworthy object.
But the UBC campus happens to be one
that, in its tidy state, is one of beauty.
Unfortunately, when the litter louts are
through strewing their rubbish about the
campus, the beauty is something to be
hunted rather than appreciated.
This editorial will not be viewed with approval by one group of students. That group
will be formed by the "litter lout" type.
And as far as the opinions of that group
are concerned—the Ubyssey couldn't care
As one last appeal to morality, the Publications Board is asking students who still
have not picked up their 1946 Totems to
pay the AMS office a visit sometime next
Waiting there for several hundred undergraduates will be those 1946 yearbooks
on which deposits were paid.
The Totem staff knows as well as anyone why many of last year's books were
not claimed by the persons who ordered
them—the Totems were not published until May.
At first, the staff was inclined to be
ashamed of that fact, even though the
members knew that publishing a yearbook during these times of shortages is an
almost impossible venture.
But when they found that McGill could
not get its yearbook out until August, and
that Queens undergrads were still looking
for their books when they went back to
school in September, they raised their heads
The fact remains that several hundred students paid a deposit on 1946 Totems, causing books to be made for them,
and then did not honor their contract when
the books were published.
Legally and morally the position is clear.
If those people do not pick up their Totems
by the end of October, the Publications
Board and the Alma Mater Society will
have to do* something about it.
Someone has suggested that anyone who
did not pick up the 1946 Totem which he
ordered, be refused a copy of the scarce
1947 Totems when they are published next

Winter is icummen in,
Lhude sing Goddamm;
Raineth drop and staineth slop,
And how the wind doth ramm!

—Ezra Pound.
DONT be alarmed, kiddies—that's just
your uncle Ezra's way of performing a
questionable act upon P. Bysshe Shelley's:
'If Winter comes, can Spring be far be-
hinds." You mustn't mind him—probably
on your mother's side of the family.
It's alright, my maggoty little moppets
—•the only reason why we let that Pound
fellow in anyway, is because, once again,
it's the night before deadline, the slippers
are on, the pipe is going; it's midnight—and
we haven't a blessed thing io do until two

to lower, comes a pause in the day's occupations that is known as the Children's
Hour. Step inside, stranger, and meet the
At any rate, this is just the time for a
little meditation and a spot of reminiscence.
You know how it goes; it's a sort of chain
reaction of ideas, a proper Irish Stew of
half-forgotten memories and recollections.
Well, that's how Ezra got in here. He
just up and struck his head through the
window and said, through his beard: "remember me?" And we replied: "Why, to
be sure, Ezra—and would you be having
a poem for us this time? And he had. And
there you have it.
While we're at it, perhaps it might be
well to explain, if you aren't already aware
of the fact, that Ezra is a poet, a renegade
American who took up residence in Italy
and spent the war years heaping garbage
upon his old ancestral home via radio. He
is now, according to the latest report, confined as .it inmate of a mental institution
following a trial on charges of treason. The
bright boy in the back row who put his
hand up when he read the jingle at the
cutset of this column may now put it down
acain; his question has been answered.
Either Ezra is crazy or America has
reached the point where she can't take any
more of his poetry.
Which reminds me of Lionel Salt, (Who
isn't crazy). Lionel, as some of you more
ancient fixtures may recall, was one of the
stalwarts of the Publications Board a few
years back, and appeared in different roles,
(depending upon the nature of the onlooker)
which ranged from the enfant terrible to
the George Jean Nathan of these parts.
Pretty much equally at home with Basie
or Bach, Lionel handled most of the "lively
arts" section of the local beats. He does it
still, but for the downtown dailies, now.
But it was as a critic that he probably got
such a kick out of friend Ezra's:
"1 beg you, my friendly critics,
Do not set about to produce me an audience.
I mate with my free kind upon the crags."
So much for Ezra.
Pierre Berton, now (as then) the terror
of the downtown dailies, was another who
preferred that damp, sunless little hole
under the Mildred Brock Room to almost any
other spot on the campus (except the Caf,
Frank). Now, the thing about Pierre is,
when he's preoccupied with news, he's preoccupied with news. What happened when
I met him on Georgia Street recently after
an interval of three years, then, causes no
Always the one for a gag, I stepped in
front of him and snarled: "hold it, Berton
—there's a pepper pot (a rod, gat) for you."
Nothing but a blank look greeted that sally.

was being polite to a mere stranger, he
emerged with: "Ah, now I remember—you

ALACK AND WELL-A-DAY! Serious campus politics are here again,
bless us A recrnt letter to the editor sounds a grim, albeit rather muffled
note of warning uncut the machinations of a "certain group'' of students
as evidenced at last Tuesday's AMS meeting.
Whenever you see references to mysterious and unamed certain
groups in letters to the Ubyssey. gentle reader, you too can play the
Just mentally substitute one of the following:
(a) Communists, goddam reds.
(b) Tories, reactionaries, goddam fascists,
fc)   Fraternities, goddam snobs.
Fun. isn't it? And it doesn't matter very much which you pick
because you'll have no way of checking which is the right one—unless,
perhaps, you go see the letter-writers and wheedle them into helping you
find the answers.   But that's cheating, really.
(Incidentally, the game promises to be even more exciting this year
than last. As you may have noticed, all those wishing to let off steam
now have to use names that are listed in the registrar's office. Which
means that the puzzles will be tougher than ever and we won't be seeing
much of "Fairplay" and his friends.)
Now, I don't want to spoil things and let the cat out of the bag by
dropping too many hints as to the identity of the "certain faction" which
now has two adherents on the Constitutional Revision Committee, BUT—
They got nicked last year under the thing they're going to help revise.
They did a lot towards getting housing for veterans on the campus.
They call other people T*r**s and F*sc*st*.
In fact  some people call them C*mm*n*st*.
Getting warm, hmmm?
Just in case somebody is thinking we're drawing r*d h*rr*ngs acrosi
the path, In ont direction only, we'll draw some differently colored ones
across the other way.
Also prominent at the AMS meeting were members of another certain
group.   Indeed, some people said they stuck out like sore thumbs.
Mere's a clue. They were neither an (a) nor a (b). Think you can
get it?
You know, I really wish I could tell you the answers, but it
simply isn't done in the best newspaper circles.
However, for the benefit of those who think they've guessed correctly,
a word of advice.
Don't take this too seriously. Some of you, like myself, may even
burst out laughing on finding the right answers.
All of which reminds me of a story a friend of mine once told me.
In the course of his travels, this chap decided to visit one of the South
American republics. Asked his occupation by a border official, he truthfully and unthinkingly replied, "student'*.
If he'd saic'. "revolutionary and here's my bombs," the official's
reaction couldn't have been more violent.
Which all goes to show, gentle reader, how harmless Canadian student
factions are by comparison,—provided you don't add grist to their mill by
ominous, vague, and oft-repeated reference to them. Refer by all means,
but be specific. And don't expect me tc help if somebody wants to sue you
for libel or stop? rushing you.

ITS REALLY marvellous how far away the publicity of
aur little old university has spread in the last year or so.
People can read news about UBC in other college papers
when the news has hardly got around the campus here.
Now I have heard rumors that the East of our fair
country is beginning to recognize the fact that there is a West
too. Great was my surprise to learn that they have also
heard of the University of British Columbia.
All of this occured one day recently when I found a copy
of "The Varsity", the daily sheet put out by the University
of Tororlto, lying there on my desk in the Pub.
It didn't take long to find their Sport page which I turned
to first, as does practically everyone on our own campus according to rumors (It might be a good Stat. 1 exercise to find
out whether they do!!)
There I found a column written by a gentleman by the
name of Mickey Michasiw. In large black face letters at the
top of the column were the worda, "Call of Vancouver."
Vancouver Mentioned Even Yet
Natch, I was interested so I read onwards. It certainly
goes to show the publicity the good old Blue and Gold is
getting nowadays.
Friend Mickey started out by describing the city which
was conveniently built near our University with the odd
compliment and the odd disparaging remark. But then he
got to the University "some forty minutes from downtown
Vancouver as the B.C. Electric crawls" and finally ended up
in football
To say the least they had heard of the prowess of our
"mighty Thunderbirds. In fact they went on to tell the eastern readers our plans for the height of the season.
As a matter of fact, they were interested in our Bowl
games. For as you probably know, Varsity has three little
tricks up its sleeve in the way of a Bowl game, one of which
should materialize.
Lots Of Football Chances
There is the possibility of a battle with a representative
of the American Football Federation. Secondly is the chance
of participation in an invitational series against American
teams somewhere down south.
The third game, was the one that probably interested our
Eastern friends most. It was the idea of playing an Eastern
Canadian university.
This would once more bring to the fore the everlasting
farce of a "Canadian college championship." The college
mentioned was Queen's of Kingston. As Mickey says, why
Queen's?   Maybe Queen's knows why.
Well,.that is still in the future. Right now it's Conference football as far as the 'Birdmen are concerned. The second tilt of the season, which the boys play this afternoon,
will not be played with a regular Conference team.
Western Washington are the visitors today and by the
by, they defeated College of Puget Sound last Saturday 7-6.
The Western boys went over with only three minutes left
to play.
Anyhoo chiUuns, the East knows that Varsity has a football team. UBC might easily make a name for itself before
this Conference is over.
Whether it's heat or cold you need,
gas surely does the job I Used In modern-
day refrigerators, aa well as In smartly
designed ranges and water heaters, gas
performs this 2-way job efficiently,
cleanly, and inexpensively! So silent,
you never hear it, but so dependable,
this wonder-flame is always on the
job. Gas means certified performance.
See the wonder flame at work at any
B.C. Electric store, your appliance
dealers or plumbers.

Saunders Returns
To Puck Sextette
VARSITY'S puckmen return to
the limelight in potent fashion,
with the announcement that the
nucleus of last year's powerhouse
will don the blades again this
year for the Blue and Gold.
Pivoted by Bob Saunders, who
garnered his Big Block last year,
the entire first line combination
of Porteous, Husband, and Saunders has reported back. Sparked
by this high flying tro the squad
under the coaching eye of Morris
Lambert skated roughshod to th«
championship of the New Westminster Industrial League and the
Kenny Cup last season.
The 1946 edition of the hockey
Thunderbirds has been entered in
the Pacific Coast Junior Hockey
League, in competition with entries from Nanaimo, Victoria, Vancouver, and New Westminster.
Back from the ice wars of 1945
are Terry Nelford, Bill Buhler.
Art Greene, Jim O'Brien, and Bob
"Shutout" Smith, cagy custodian
for the Thunderbirds last year.
Fulfilling the coaching chores
ii Frank Fredrlckson, a hockey
great of yore. Frank garnered hK
tutorial experience as chief mentor for the Sea Island Seahawks
in 1944, and should prove an invaluable asset ln realizing Varsity's hockey dreams.

Bud Spiers, well known because of his past performances
on last year's Thunderbirds, will
be in the all important five-eighth.
He will be strongly supported by
a line of veteran players, including speedy Andy Johnston, Roy
Grant and McKee. A newcomer
who packs a lot of weight, Russ
Latham, will be proving to his
teammates that he Is worthy of
Varsity as he completes the three
quarter line.
The Varsity forwards are mainly veterans who have played for
Varsity in previous years. Well
kimvn names such as Hart Crosby, Harvey Allen, Barrie Morris,
and Geoff Corey will be joined
by Marshall Smith, Al Gardner
and Barney Kirby to form one of
the most powerful forward lines
of many years.
A newcomer to the senior division in Vancouver is big Scott
Kerr who is in the forward lineup of UBC. Scotty, who hails from
Oak Bay, and is well known in
Victoria, played in the UBC junior
division two years ago. Last year
he returned to Victoria and played for Victoria College, and in the
spring turned up on the Crimson
Scotty has fine support in the
UBC three quarter line, including
two former Victoria teammates,
Buddy Lott who is this year's
triple - threat scrum half, and
speedy Jim McKeachie all ot
whom are anxious to show Vancouver their real worth.
In the all important five-eighth
spot is George Biddle who will be
playing his first game with UBC
against his old teammates. Time
alone will tell if Meralomas
strength has survived his absence.

VARSITY lliunderblrds will be
out for that all important initial
victory this afternoon when they
play host to the powerful Western Vikings, perennial rivals of
the 'Birds on the basketball court.
Greg Kabat's spirited aggregation is slated to jog onto the stadium gridiron at 2:00 p.m. against
the squad piloted by Coach Lappy
Lappenbusch which eked out a
.shallow 7-6 victory over a highly-
touted College of Puget Sound
eleven last Saturday.
Although this afternoon's tilt is
* in the nature of an exhibition contest, Kabat's charges expect no
tea party from the Bellingham
gridmen who feature a brilliant
ground offensive coupled with a
potent aerial attack.
Injuries have begun to plague
the stalwarts from Point Grey.
Bert Horwood, reliable first string
end, has been forced to the sidelines with an injured knee and
will probably be replaced on the
lineup by Gus Salnas. Thursday
AFTER TWO weeks of gruelling
practice, In which some M line
specimens have tamed out, ulee-
tloni for the UBC Thunderbirds
and Chiefs will be made and posted on the gym notice board after
ueaday's 4:30 to 6 p.m. work-out.

Great Weekend
For Soccer Lads
THANKSGIVING weekend finds
the Varsity soccer crews on a
loundball rampage. On Saturday
at 11 a.m. the perennial inter-
squad clash featuring Varsity vs.
UBC takes place on the Stadium
upper field. Both teams will be
playing for keeps as they are both
•ted in the league standings.
Back in Varsity lineup after a
week's absence will be Kenny
Myers at full-back and Gus Mac-
Sween at centre half. UBC will
be weakened by the loss of Bill
McKay, injured in last week's
game and Jack Stevens who is going- home for the weekend.
On Monday, Thanksgiving Day,
Varsity takes on the Norquay outfit on the stadium upper field at
2:00 p.m., while UBC meets Vancouver Rangers at Kerrisdale
Park at the same time. Both University teams will be out for revenge, as in previous games Varsity was beaten by the Rangers and

evening saw another Thunderbird
hit the bench Incapacitated, when
Tony McClorg, diminutive speedster in Kabat's second string back-
field formation, was laid low by
a rough scrimmage which wrenched his right ankle.
The same lineup which held the
Willametfe Bearcats to a well-
earned 26-13 victory last week.
will probably see action again
this afternoon. Rex Wilson, absent from the team when they
played the Salem football combination, will don the gear in the
quarterback slot, while Horwood's
ailment will prcoably preclude a
shift in Kabat's strategy on the
end positions.
Lappenbusch is bringing only 31
men to the campus, leaving the
test of his roster of 51 to languish in the Bellingham Institution.
Although this might smack of a
mite of overconfidence, Kabat
won't give the American club any
breathing space during the grid
war this afternoon.
The Thunderbirds have been undergoing steady improvement under the coach's shrewd mentor-
ship, and a victory under the belts
of his some-what green charges
would go far to Instilling confidence into the home fans. The
UBC club will produce » much
smoother exhibition of grid than
that which came so close to up-

The great "spirit which characterized thc Thunderbird squad in
pre-sea.son practice has continued
to highlight their gridiron caper-
ings. Sparked by this effervescence on the gridiron, the UBC
football machine should provide a
performance dear to the hearts
of the home crowd. The Thunderbirds are after the Viking scalps,
and Kabat is determined that
they'll get it.
