Stag Lines...
By  PAT  SLATTERY  (The  Vancouver  Sun)
From what I have seen,  UBC  students  refuse  to  play
"follow-the-leader" when it comes to styles or trends in men's
After my afternoon visiting
the campus, I noticed student.;
featured the following garb:
1. Ivy League.
2. Black leather jackets and
weather-beaten, skin-tight jeans
(with or without Elvis Presley
3. Gay cowboy outfits, 10 gallon hats and boots.
4. Standard cashmere or
lambswool sweaters over white
tee shirts.
5. Conservative suits, coats
and hats worn by serious minded law and commerce students
6. A number of types looked
like they were going to a barn-
cleaning party instead of lectures.
Of course, there are always the • sport jacket and slack look for
radicals like the boys in the '■ lectures and other campus i'unc-
"Jazzsoc" and "Players Club" t'011s- They give you that half-
v/ho   would   feel   undressed   un-iway    look    between   the    cash-
it's refreshing to see such a varied expression.
Frankly I'm fed up looking at
our high school students. There
isn't a rugged individualist in
the crowd.
If the big boys dictate that
leather jackets and jeans will
be worn, you wear 'cm to eat,
sleep and study in.
Bui Ibis isn't so at UBC.
' Sure there'll be a few like
t the ultra smart Ivy League
! dressers who'll try to set t he
; trend. But tiie Ivy League Look
will never catch on seriously

Spring Is The Fashion

Fashion    Revival
Makes New Look
By MARIE MOREAU, Vancouver Sun Fashion Editor
Chances are if you looked through your mother's photograph album you would see fashions which look quite contemporary to your eyes. For we're right back in the fashion era o£
1930, this spring of 1957.
You   won't   be   saying   "But -~
Mother what strange looking
clothese you wore back in those
days." They will no doubt look
quite up to to-day's date.
Perhaps 11 s
the old motion
pictures we
watch these days
on t e le v ision
that have accustomed our
eyes to the garb
of those days.
At any rate, and
for whatever
reason, the 1930's look has been
revived this spring by designers
both here and in Europe.
Last month when I attended
an average of ten fashion shows
in New York to get the spring
fashion story it was remarkable
how every designer of note followed this trend.
This will seem more remarkable to you when you realize
that each designer works secretly and without collaboration
with another.
Fashion runs in a cycle.
The psychologists could account for it and the reason why
all designers, sensitive people
that they are, sense when a certain cycle is coming back  into
I focus, and arrive at it simultan-
| eously.
j Its one of the things about the
| inner working of fashion I find
j most   intriguing.
j     To  tell  you  the  spring story
I from both New York and Paris
I   am   going   to   quote  from  a
Vogue magazine of 1930.
The story for 1957 is the same
and it may amuse you to learn
how closely we follow those
looks of twenty-odd years ago..
"Paris clings to natural waistlines, easily caught-up girdled
waistlines, floating panels, draped surplice bodices, banded frills
and pleated flounces, fluid skirts
that float in movement and cling
in repose—these are but details
combined to express the meaning of the Grecian theme.
"For evening the Greek line
might spar amicably with the
Directoire and sometimes the
Spanish—for there are a great
number of boleros that reflect
the gay matadors.
"The bolero, too, has a rival—
the cape, There have never been
so many and they appear on
coats, on suits and orj frocks
for all times of day as well.
They are usually short, sometimes very short, barely covering
the shoulders. Chanel makes ^
capelet scarf to match the fabric
of a woolen frock and lines it
with a soft-toned printed silk
repeated in the cuffs.
"White collars and cuffs, and
even jabots and what the French
call 'plastrons,' are so often in
white of some kind—pique, linen, organdie, chiffon and almost
anything to which 'lingerie' applies. More, though, these have
prime importance, on afternoon
frocks of black or navy blue—
and there is much navy this year.
"The Tunic, too, is an outstanding feature. For afternoon
wear you can practically take
your choice of color, but it is
much better to follow the underscored colors—black, navy (including Monaco blue, like cornflowers),  brown and  beige.
"For street and sport wear
the hemline is never shorter thatt
a few inches below the knee,
nor longer than the top of the
calf, though all the designers
do not agree on the same skirt
length. For evening, skirts do
anything from flick tho instep to
trail the ground." PAGE TWO~r4Supplement)

To make thc situation oven
lore  impossible,  the  teachers
|f today have the temerity to
ggest that they may be paid
much as a carpenter, pluni-
\ev or electrician.
Everyone knows that these
latter artisans are the backbone of the nation, whereas
teachers are individuals with
|io initiative who are too lazy
go out and work. Teachers
Jeserve even less than they
hre now paid.
These few facts should clear-
ly indicate that the way to ease
the situation is to lessen the in-
|flux of students into the public
A Corollary to this solution
irould be  that  in  a  very  few
pears the university would be
|able to close many of the temporary  buildings  and   consoli-
late into an efficient unit of
labout     1000     students.    This
Duld eliminate the necessity
||or  the  government  to  grant
JBC any more money. j
The only logical solution is
tto divert the student flow from
Ithe school to other channels
|where inherent abilities may
be put to use. The concept of
luseability would unfortunately
[eliminate all fields where acquired knowledge or abilities
Imust be used, for these child-
Ipen would have no education of
[any type.
The problem in this perspective contains an  inherent an-
jswer.    The    excess    children
Iw0uld be used for medical and
[other    experimental    projects.
[Consider the boon to society if
jMD's  could  train  on   sentient
[human  beings  instead of ani-
(iirfals and cadavers.
r'The    intimate    knowledge
jjained would be beneficial to
||11 humanity.    The objections
Of the SPCA could be satisfied
»nd   the   difficulty   in   testing
new techniques and drugs then
Wohld    be    triumphantly    re-
I solved.
The possible effectiveness of
J various  new serums  could  be
Ues*ted.    If some scientist wish-
led to test a new rabies drug,
he simply would have a couple
Of dozen specimens sent to his
laboratory. He gives the serum
to half and then has a mad dog
bite each member of the group.
By comparing the death rates
Of the two groups  interesting
statistics would be gained.
The other sciences would
also benefit. Imagine how
'happy the aeronautical engi-
?ers would be if they had hu-
Ijraft beings to experiment with.
,They could define exactly the
,amount of acceleration a body
kcould take simply by applying
acceleration  until their  specimen disintegrated.
Space travel would forge
ahead by leaps and bounds.
Consider being able to determine the exact length of time
a space man could live without
food or water.
The psychologist would be
overjoyed; it would be a Pav-
lovian dream come true. The
mathematicians could actually
prove physically their various
abstruse problems such as: If
one man can dig six post holes
in 3m hours, how long would
it take 20 men to dig the same
post holes? Think of the benefit mankind could derive if this
question were conclusively answered.
And then the benefits to the
military must be considered.
Imagine the joy of the nuclear
physicists if they could be given live people to drop their
test hydrogen bombs on. They
could determine to thc centimeter how close a bomb lias to
fall to be 40, 60 or 100 percent
The military could spend
years and use millions of excess children to answer this one
problem alone.

Bears always played their back-
line flat, regardless of their position on the field, in an attempt
to smother UBC's dangerous pas-
, sing attacks.
California struck quickly,
when John Elsworthy kicked a
penalty after Varsity was caught
offside right in front of their
posts.  After about  ten  minutes
[ of play, the  Bears scored their
i try, hooker Mike White falling
; on the ball in the end zone.
Elsworthy converted to make
the score 8-0.
The match soon became a test
of sheer endurance and courage
as the two packs slugged it out
in the mud. Although the Birds
controlled 80rl of the play in
the second half, they could not
score,  and Cal  can  be thankful
< for the phenomenal play of full-
; back  Jim   Duff,   who   saved  at
least  five trys.
j     Saturday, with the field much
! dryer, and 5000 spectators in attendance, t h e Thunderbirds
showed the Californians some of
the passing skill and speed which
is their strength. The Birds opened quickly, and forced Cal within their 25-yard line, keeping
them there for almost 15 minutes. Twice the Varsity backs
caught Cal men out of position
and a dropped pass spoiled both
i movements.

Wild, Levy
Chosen For
2nd Allstar
Despite their lowly standing
in the Evergreen Conference,
the UBC Thundefbirds have
placed guard Ed Wild and centre
Lyall Levy on the second all-
star team.
Between the two of them,
Wild and Levy carried most of
the scoring load for the rather
punchless Birds. Wild averaged
13.3 points per game and Levy
Levy's selection was something of a surprise as an ankle
injury had forced him to miss
two games and slowed him down
late in the season. He was still
able to lead the team in rebounds, however, and was one of
the Birds' smartest play-makers.
Wild, now a three-year veteran, had by far his finest Conference season. His deadly
jump-shooting was the most consistent weapon in the Birds' lim-
i ited arsenal.
!     Fortunately   for   Thunderbird
i coach Jack Pomfret, both Wild
; and Levy will be back next season.

Inco Copper in millions of feet of plumbing
for Canadian homes
•.. more jobs in Canada
Tor LONG LIFE and trouble-free
service, there's nothing quite like
copper plumbing in the home. It
won't rust; it resists corrosion; under
normal conditions, it will last as long
as the building.
Today, nearly all the new homes
being built in Canada have copper
plumbing. And more than half of
this copper comes from Inco.
Here's how Inco Copper helps make
jobs for Canadians. Down in the
mines, Inco workmen blast out the
ore. It is milled, smelted and refined
at Inco's plants in Copper Cliff,
Ontario. Refined copper is sold to
Canadian companies for the manufacture of tube, fittings and other
plumbing items. Then plumbers install
them in Canadian homes.
All these operations help provide
jobs for thousands of workmen.
That's how Inco helps stimulate
the growth and development of
industry in Canada.

the illustrated booklet
"The Romance of Nickel".
This piece of copper pipe, found in the tomb of
the Egyptian Pharaoh Cheops, was used to carry
water from the Nile for the Royal swimming
pool. Though more than 5,000 years old, it is
still in serviceable condition today.
