Students  Rally  Behind
Red   Cross  Campaign
A.M.S. Meeting Wednesday To Discuss Plans
For Aiding War Charities Program
Possibilities for a Red Cross drive In which all the students of the University will participate, will be discussed on
Wednesday, next, at the Alma Mater Society meeting.
A definite objective will be set, and plans will go ahead for
the realization of it.   Two dollars of the caution money may be
appropriated by waivers for the campaign.
The women of the University may,*—
replace the "mile of dimes" with a
weekly "self-denial" day, on which
students will be expected to do without a coke and put the nickel in the
box provided. Boxes will be different colours for different faculties
—red for Science, blue for Arts, etc.
On the Wednesday following the
Alma Mater meeting a pep meet Is
to be held, at which some band will
Greek letter societies may sponsor
a ball to swell the fund, all proceeds
to go to the Red Cross.
The only definite thing on the
program as yet la tho Players'
Club's contribution, a presentation
of "Pride and Prejudice" open to
the public. The cast is Intact as
played last year except for two of
the actors.
The cost of production is expected
to be small, ond at 50 cents a seat,
none of which will be reserved, quite
a profit is expected, all of which will
go to the Red Cross. The play will
be put on some time near the beginning  of  January.
Any other suggestions are welcome,
and wholehearted support of the
drive is expected. "Every student ls
expected to do his duty".

Informed military circles predict an
overwhelming victory for the Pub,

General Margeson refused to divulge information concerning the
Pub's new secret weapons, but claims

months pubsters have been working
to perfect these weapons and to acquaint   themselves  with   their   use.
2 Cents Per Waistline Inch
Thin Boys Most Popular
At Alherta Sadie  Hawkius
EDMONTON. (C.U.P.)—Two cents<*>
per inch of a man's waistline is what
girls pay to take the best boy-friend
to a Sadie Hawkins dance at tlie
University of Alberta. The girls figure that stout men are -easier to
catch, and they want the girls to get
out   and   flght   for   their   man.
The maximum price the girls will
have to pay will be 70 cents, and thc
minimum  50  cents.
The dance is appropiately called
the Dogpatch Dig, and Is sponsored
by the Co-ed Wat- Club, for the purpose of raising funds for the Waun-
eita War Workers. Novelty features
have been arranged to conform to
Dogpatch   hlll-bUly   style.
An official Sadie Hawkins dance
will be staged In the place of the
regular Saturday night House Dance,
and will also feature novelties. The
Outdoor Club, it is expected, will
also   hold   a   Sadie   Hawkins   dance.
In addition to these dances, other
informal affairs will be held such as
bowling and roller-skating, all in the
spirit of Sadie, who mak-es a prominent appearance on the Alberta

Artsmen Aim At Informality
In  Opening Mixer Saturday
C. U. P. News
Kingston, Ont. (C.U.P.) —
Several students suffered bruis
es and damage was done to the
Arts Building at Queen's Uni
versity, Tuesday, when arts and
science students clashed as they
left morning classes.
Taking refuge ln their own building, the arts students were bombarded with tomatoes, rotten eggs and
flour sack bombs by the science men
who took the offensive. Windows
were broken and students inside were
showered with broken glass. It was
reported that at one stage of the
battle a pop bottle and pieces of
broken glass were used as ammunition.
Tho fracas was a prelude to thc
annual  election  of  officers  of the
Alma Mater Society here today.
The society is the University's student governing body and two candidate each front the Arts' Science and
Medical faculties and from the Lev-
ana Society are contesting the four
executive   positions.
The battle finally was halted when
Principal R. C. Wallace was called
to the scene. Bombardment of the
Arts Building was halted after Dr.
Wallace had remonstrated with the
science  students  for  several   minutes.
"A disgraceful performance," he
commented. "It is the worst possible
way   to  win  an election."
Popular belief to the contrary,
newspapers and newspapermen mold
public opinion, George Wright, editorial writer of the Vancouver News-
Herald, told Sclencemen at the 15th
Annual Banquet at the Commodore
last evening. Other speakers were
Professor Walter Gage. Dean Daniel
Buchanan. Dean J. N. Finlayson, Mr.
Redpath,   and   John   Oliver.
Speaking on the power of the press,
Mr. Wright said that before criticizing papers, people should remember
that newspapers and editors are trying to give an accurate interpretation
of  the  news to  tho  public.
Ho advised that Sciencemen and
youth do their own thinking, for
the real destiny of Canada depends
cn them. By heeding the counsel of
age and by doing their own thinking,
youth will be able to mold the future
policy   of  the  nation.
No Action Yet
On Even ;ng Use
Of Brock^ Hall
Will or will not the student body
of U.B.C. be allowed the evening use
of  Brock  Hall?
The committee for the administration of Brock Hall has recommended
to the Board of Governors that the
building be kept open till 10 o'clock
on week days and till 6 on Saturdays.
According to A.M.S. Treasurer
Peter McTavlsh the present issue of
controversy is not whether the building will stay open but who, if it does
stay open, will pay the Proctor's
wages for the extra time.
At present the A.M.S. is paying the
Proctor from 11 to 5 and Council
feels that it is the duty of the Board
of Governors to pay for the extra
The important thing is, ln Mr.
McTavlsh's own words . "Students'
Council is determined to do all It can
to get Brock Hall open In thc evening."
"We don't want to pay," said Peter.
j but he indicated that a way could
probably be found if it were necessary.
TORONTO, Ont., October 27, 1940.
(C.U.P.)—John Lewis, the C.I.O., the
Editor and Publisher, Dorothy
Thompson, Walter Lippman, and the
Gallup Poll notwithstanding. University of Toronto students favor
F.D.R. and his fireside chats for a
third term a_ President of the United States.
While the lone Willkie supporter
wore his Willkie button in silence,
other students when interviewed left
no doubt, that Roosevelt will come
out on top. To the question "Who
will win" Mary Bruck, U.C. fourth
year president, said that Roosevelt',
re-election would be the best thing
for   the   country.
On the other hand Gretta Riddell.
women's interfaculty debating club
president, said that Roosevelt, though
he would get in, has already wrecked and ruined the country economically. After a few minutes profound
silence, up spoke a freshette, "I
don't know who will win, but I hope
F.D.R. does".
TORONTO, Ont., October 26, 1940.
(C.U.P.)—More than 150 co-eds of
the University of Toronto, registered
today for a Women's War Service
Training which will include instructions in military law and military
drill. Many girls signified their Interest In the courses but did not
Sample uniforms, which the co-eds
may wear, were described as one-
piece models in gray alpine cloth
with forage caps to match. Accessories .will Include a blue tie, trimming on the cap and the Red Cross
This course -will run six or seven
weeks in the fall term and 10 weeks
in  the  spring term.
TORONTO, Ont., October 27. 1940,
(C.U.P.) — Toronto co-eds registered
today en masse for courses sponsored
by the University of Toronto Women's War Service Committee. Th-e
courses include training in First Aid,
Home Nursing, Motor Mechanics and
Red  Cross Sewing.
The First Aid and Home Nursing
courses, given by the St. John Ambulance Association, consist of six
two hour lectures over a period of
six weeks. Successful candidates who
pass examinations given in the seventh   week  will   receive   a   certificate.
The Ford Motor Company is sponsoring the motor mechanics Course,
which will take eight weeks. Applicants must be over 18 and must
have a driver's license. The courses
will   commence  on   November   13.

! in November has been postponed until   spring—probably  on January   30.
Brock Hall Scene Of Initial All-Faculty Get-
Together'' Poulton's Orchestra To Play
Brock Hall will be the scene of a. brand new innovation
from 8:30 to 12:36 Saturday evening when Artsmen, Science-
men, and even Aggies combine to support the first Arts mixer.
This mixer, the first of a series to be held every other
Saturday, is a genuine endeavor to get University students together and to help the Red Cross.
Unless he belongs to a number of<$>-
clubs, the average student finds it
difficult to meet anyone outside of
his own little circle. University functions, up until the present, have been
inadequate. The Arts Mixer therefore will meet a real need and serve
to unite the student body.
Students are asked to note that the
official title of the function ls ARTS
MIXER—in other words the affair is
a real get-together and not just a
Everyone    is    expected    to    mingle
with everyone else, instead of remaining  in   his  own  special   group   as  is
commonly done at University dances.
To ensure the suceess of the affair,  Sid  Poulton  and  his Varsity
Orchestra  will provide  the music.
This  news  will   be   welcomed   especially by those students who attended the Homecoming tea dance
and   potlatch,   where   Sid  and   the
boys gave  a  capital performance,
a    performance    which    promises
well for their future engagements
this year.
Perhaps the best feature of ths
Arts Mixer ls the convenient low
price—25 cents a person. This price
has been selected in keeping with
the budget of the average University
student, so that no one will be able
to go to a downtown movie instead
of the Mixer in the plea of financial
difficulties. Any extra money will be
spent   on   a   radio   for  Brock   Hall.
Science Starts
Totem Campaign
For Dollars
Few students are aware of it,
but history was made on the
U. B. C. Campus, Thursday
morning. The engineers did it
again !
Commerce students elected Ernest
Harvey president for the coming year
at their elections Wednesday. Other
executives, under Hon, President E.
H. Morrow, are as follows: Vlce-
Pres., Bill Van Houten; Secretary,
Grace Cuthbert; Treasurer, Dale
Rumball; Athletic Rep., Gerry Armstrong.
count them, a whole
- of mechanical engineers walked into the sacred
precincts of the Publications
Board. That fact alone is
enough to make headlines but
wait!    There is more.
Each of these five—count them—
engineers laid a dollar on the line
and timidly asked if he could have
a  Totem.
Verily,   it  is  an  age   of  wonders.
For years the Totem staff has
struggled in vain against the defensive wall of indifference presented by
Science to their hallowed annual. For
years they have bended the knee and
begged Science to buy their product.
But the engineers were not to be
persuaded. Yet here they ana in this
wonderful year of 1940, actually paying their dollar in advance and asking for it.
"After aU," they say, "the Totem
is   the   best   university   annual   In
the   Dominion,   and   there   Is   no
sense in being stubborn about it,"
Artsmen  are  advised  to start  rushing   their   dollar    deposits   in   before
Science corners the market. After all,
one   never   knows  about   engineers.
Boogie-Woogie Beat
"I Admit You"
Retiring Bishop
Receives Degree
At Convocation
Kneeling on the blue and gold
cushion before Chancellor R. E. McKechnie Wednesday, Most Rev. Archbishop A. U. de Pencier felt the light
tap of the black mortarboard and
heard the symbolic words "I admit
you" which signified that he was the
recipient of the greatest honor the
University can bestow—that of Doctor   of   Laws,   honoris   causa.
In a short but impressive congregation ceremony held in the Auditorium. 74 students followed the
Archbishop to the blue and gold
cushion to receive degrees, six of
which  were  Master of Arts.
The Archbishop signed his name
with a quill pen in the registry which
already lists the names of the late
Lord Tweedsmulr and Hon. E. W.
Hamber, former recipients of the
honorary  LL.D.   degree.
Then he told the students something of the founding of their University, in which he was instrumental, and drew a sharp contrast
between the first Inauguration day in
Victoria and the colorful scene in
the  Auditorium  Wednesday.
For the background, on the stage,
vividly-hued hoods and gowns formed an impressive color scheme to
what has always been an Impressive
The Archbishop told his listeners
that the British ideals of freedom, independence, justice, and loyalty were
and always had been the ideais of
the   University   of   British   Columbia.
Following tbe Congregation, a reception for graduates was held in
Brock   Hall.
Peppy prelude to Saturday's Arts
Mixer, the Artsmen's pep meet
Thursday noon set a new high ln
student  enthusiasm.
For the flrst time ' this year,
Sciencemen were thrust well into the
background by lusty-lunged Artsmen.
Science yells began well as usual, but
soon petered out Into vague rumblings, completely drowned out by
"Where the heck would Science be?"
and  ether  rousing  Arts  songs.
After the Introduction of the Arts
Executive, Sandy Nash had quite a
time making himself heard above the
indignant yells of Sciencemen annoyed at being forced to take a back
seat in the proceedings. Eventually a
grant of two minutes' silence enabled Nash to blurt out some information about Arts sweaters and
the Arts Mixer for the benefit of
students who never read the Ubyssey.
Sid Poulton and his orchestra
showed what a first-class Varsity
orchestra can do with "Marie",
"Dinah", "It's a Lovely Day" and
other selections. Sid's vocalizing of
"It's a Lovely Day" received wholehearted   and   well-merited   applause.
Most novel and probably best appreciated item on the program was
"Boogie-Woogie"" with Doug Watt
and Johnny Fletcher at the piano.
The duo hit a solid beat, demonstrating to the crowd the art made
famous by Plnetop Smith and Meade
"Lux"  Lewis.
Artsmen flushed with triumph and
Sciencemen crushed by defeat and
for the first time realizing their insignificance left the auditorium to the
strains of "Hail,  U.B.C."
The annual tea of the Nurses' Undergraduate Society will be held

The Council Spends
For some obscure reason, the Students'
Council's own expenses are rising every year.
Last year, the Council budgeted an amount
based on the expenditures of the previous year.
Actual expenses, however, amounted to far
more than was budgeted-. The Council this
year has budgeted on the expenditures of last
year, and no doubt they will spend more than
has been budgeted. If the Council next year
budgets on the basis of this year's expenses,
the process may continue indefinitely and
Council's expenses will continue to rise.
These expenses are made up of meals,
banquets, Class A awards, and incidental expenses. The banquets seem to be increasing
in number and cost every year.
Meals supplied to the Council on meeting
nights are also much more expensive now than
they used to be.
Of course everyone realizes that the members of the Council spend a great deal of time
and energy on student business and get very
little in return. But even so in a year like
this when most other budgets are being cut
down, the Council expense budget, which is
chiefly for pleasure and luxury, should not be
There might not be much objection to an
average expense account. But at the last
meeting, the Council passed a minute awarding new Class A awards to members who were
on the Council for the second year. This matter of double awards -has been brought up in
former years, but it has never been passed
before. Class A awards are costly, and we ask
why such an additional expense should be
added in a year of desperate warfare, when lt
has never appeared before.
There is another matter. Class A awards
can only be made by a meeting of the whole
Alma Mater Society. The Council has no
authority to award extra awards of this kind.
If they think that additional awards should be
made, they should bring up the matter at the
semi-annual or at the annual meeting of the
Alma Mater Society where it could be discussed properly.
We are not trying to belittle the services
of members who have been on the Students'
Council for two years. Their services have
undoubtedly been valuable and will be so for
tho rest of the year; but in wartime, all unnecessary expenses should be cut out. This
expense is absolutely unnecessary.

Not The Students* Fault
A Clean-Up Campaign, on this campus is
doomed to failure from its very start. Thero
are not enough receptacles for rubbish anywhere  on the campus.
Students from timo to time aro reminded
not to throw* their empty lunch bags in corners or To toss cigarette packages ottt on the
lawns. They would not do so if there was a
waste paper basket within a reasonable distance. Most have been trained well at homo
to be neat and clean, and would be so here on
the campus if they could.
Until more baskets are placed in the Cafeteria, in the common rooms, and at other
places around the buildings, there can be no
clean-up. *
Everyone agrees that more receptacles are
necessary, but no one can seem to agree where
the money for them is to come from. Until
receptacles are provided, the students cannot
be blamed for the state of the campus.
The question of broken bottles on the
parking  lot  is still important.     One  professor
This Collese Whirl
By Cycle
. , . During the past two weeks the fraternities that are on this campus have been subjected to a somewhat needless and merciless
criticism by non-fraternity members who will
never be fraternity members because (a) they
do not meet the requirements or standards of
any of the fraternity clubs; (b) they can never
afford to join; or (c) they are not asked even
if they meet the requirements.
Whenever the fraternities involve themselves in disputes or are involved in disputes,
as they were last campus election, by an element which was definitely "antl", the "I hate
the Frat" group immediately straighten back
their shoulders, attack the fraternity clubs
with illogical venom, publicize the so-called
wild life, and say virtuously "Those fraternities
are undermining the individuality of the college student, ruining his morals, and destroying his potential value as a good citizen."
Joe and Josephine College, my answer is
I SAY "NUTS" . . .
. . . Because I believe that the Fraternity
is an organization which has definite values for
its members if these members take the time
and the patience to seek these values. So is
it with all clubs. Th argument that the fraternity tends to rob an individual of his individuality or personality and make him a
stereotype is obviously fallacious. In any society the individual must conform to certain
superficial requirements. If he ever had any
individuality he would retain it, for true individuality or personality is never superficial.
In any fraternity the individual must conform to certain requirements. Likewise must
the members of the Social Problems Club, the
Parliamentary Forum, the Musical Society, the
Players' Club conform to the laws and requirements of their organizations. Yet, I never
heard anybody complain that adjustment to
any particular club robbed him of what individuality he might possess.
As for the "I hate the Frats" group charges
that the fraternities ruin the morals of college
youth, might I point out that every "anti" element in the world must have something on
which to project (a) their own inefficiencies;
(b) their own immoralities; (c) their own eccentricities.
And the "anti" element are really to be
pitied for they think not as they wish but as
they can. They seek the easiest in life. They
have learned that destruction and destructive
criticism is so popular, so attractive, and so
... Of the fraternity clubs (and I maintain they are clubs) is that they are not living up to their agreement with last year's Students' Council and the University Authorities
to do their part in keeping the Caf clean. Last
year, as most of you studes will recall, the
"Ubyssey" pubicized the Clean-Up Campaign
of the Students' Council. The fraternities and
faculties pledged their support to help ameliorate the untidy conditions in the cafeteria, the
common rooms, and the campus.
Moreover, the fraternities, according
to the Ubyssey of January 23, 1940, pledged themselves to maintain the clean-up
campaign. "Their" tables, which are theirs
only through the courtesy of Frank Underhiil and the timidity of the "anti" element,
indicate that they have forgotten what the
clean-up campaign was.
Most of the fraternities have acquired a
flock of pledges, whom they can train and educate to keep their tables clean. After all the
apprentice does what the master teaches him.
If appearances signify anything, then one
can presumably judge the relative values of
the different fraternities by the way "their"
table looks.
How about it, frats !
As a matter of fact, how about it, Joe and
Josephine! Can. we clean up voluntarily or
must wo havo another campaign?
Into the hall where each Monday
night they met to hold their mystic
ceremonies and play snap filed th-a
Tin Gods, while Oscar Seribbleweil
watched from Chang Suey's observation room.
The air was dense with fumea of
the incense burning before the image
of the demon-god Quorum, idol of
the Dirty Nine. The statue's eyes
were cold and vacant—vacant as the
Auditorium at an A.M.S. meeting,
and In ita outstrech-d hands lt waived  its  caution  money.
The Dirty Nine trotted slowly ln
a circle, chanting a wlerd hymn
to the provincial government, but
the tenth Tin God stood aside with
a disdainful look. For he was the
High Priest of Thoth, and to him
tho granite Image of Quorum was
Just another chiselled chlaeller.
He came to the Dirty Nine's meetings simply because he loved to
play snap.
Oscar watched with awe as the
block-robed figure of the great Mar-
maduke Bumsden, head of the Tin
Gods, approached the imagj and bowed low before it. He fumbled through
a looseleaf for a sheet of paper from
which in a rapid muffled voice he
began  to  read a speech.

"No," wept Bumsden, mopping his
sensitive grey eyes, "we have to keep

as more bottles aro broken on the ground. It
is impossible for the man in charge to pick tip
all the glass. Tho Cafeteria would charge a
deposit on bottles if it were feasible, but has
not at present the extra help for the work that
such a charge would entail. It is up to the
students, then, to keep the parking lot free

"Negro sculpture is far superior to
anything civilized England has yet
produced," John Shadbolt, of the
Vancouver Art School, told a group
of art admirers, at noon Wednesday
in  the Library  Art  Room.
The unusual appearance of Negro
masks and images ls due to a dif-
erence In the attitude of these primitive people to art expression. Their
figures, and -especially the faces, are
stylized,   he   explained.
it Is often said that primitive artists
display a sad deficiency of a sense of
proportion. Mr. Shadbolt refuted
this by saying that proportion to them
Is subordinate to the cone-optional
The Influence of these uncivilized
sculptors on contemporaries like
Picasso, Modigllanl, Derain, and
Henry Moore was next discussed.
Moore, one of the most infiuencial of
pres-ont clay sculptors, uses stones
he finds at the seashore for his beginning; then he follows up this
shape much as poets now write their
personal associations. The result, as
with Negro sculpture, is comparable
to the work produced by deaf and
blind children, who ignore detail
naturally   unknown   to   them.
Mr. Shadbolt concluded with tho
reasons for tho greatness of Negro
Sculptui-. The negro sculptor was
not self-conscious, he had no sense
of time, and he conceived thc various
parts  in  terms of domes and cylinders.

With    an   evil    smirk    the     oriental

by two of his brutal henchmen. They

Dear Editor:
In the last Issue ot the Ubyssey, an
editorial waa devoted to the aubject
of music and the student. The column lamented particularly the lack
of proper musical appreciation courses on this campus. The Carnegie Set
was mentioned, yet here was overlooked the best of all facilities by
which students may become acquainted with music. Nevertheless,
most have little or no chance to ever
listen to the  records.
In three other cases, familiar to
this writer, where a university has
been presented with a music aet from
the Carnegie Foundation, the set was
handled in an entirely different manner, with notable success. At Toronto University, McGiil and Columbia, if a student wishes, he may enter the Music Room at any time of
the day, and the operator of the set
will play successively th-a requests of
the listeners. The room need neither
be large nor elaborately furnished.
The  sat  will  not  be  hurt  by  use.
Here at U.B.C. we have all the
facilities for such a room. In the
Brock, there is a great deal of unused space and furniture, The number of students who will begin to
understand and appreciate music
through this Improvement will warrant the work necessary. It is a
shame that the average person at
this university never has a ehanee
to listen to their choice of the
splendid and popular Carnegie Recordings. What does the "Ubyssey"

Dirty Nine Unprepared

By Punderblrd
At precisely 9:34 a.m., Thursday, a white faced council
member staggered into the Publications office and announced
in a shaky voice that the Council had postponed the Pub-Council game.
Reporters, who had been gnawing
busily on sheets of copy paper, threw
a typewriter in the councillor's general direction but missed it as lt
crawled shakily  out of the door.
The Goon-god alleged that the reason for postponement was because of
the Pass System feature whioh waa
being held in the Auditorium Friday
What It forgot to mention waa
this: The Council deliberately held
the Pass System feature the same
day as the pub-council game In
order to stall for time and put off
the fatal day as long aa poaaible.

Dear Editor:
Those of us who cannot afford the
finery flaunted in your "Campus
Clothes Quiz" feel that such a thing
is condulslve to an inferiority cqm-
Not that we are of the intelligentsia
or "book-worm" type to object to
dressing In the way you suggest. But
when you make so much of a subject
particularly in war time we feel there
is something radically wrong with
your   policy.
It definitely discourages enrollment(
by those not in a position to dress
as  you  would   have us  dressed.
Students on campuses shouldn't be
distinguished by the clothes they
wear rather by some mark of intellect    and    personality    development.
Is It a sin to try and make our
last season's clothes  do for  this  term
and  by  so  doing  have  something  to
offer  for   the  War Effort?
Perhaps you don't agree, but we
would welcome your comments as
well as those from the rest of the
student   body.
Yours truly,
EDITOR'S   NOTE  —   Advertisements do not define our policy In

Dear Sir:
Are U.B.C. students so stodgy and
and conservative that they cannot do
something which has not been done
before? Let us have a Sadie Hawkins Week this year at U.B.C. Let
there be one week when the girls
can have open season for a few short
days (some will argue that woman is
eternally the hunter) and one week
incldently when Joe College doesn't
have to dig down to the last dollar.
Why shouldn't U.B.C. just try an experiment which promises to be very
entertaining? Here is the chance for
woman to assert herself, to prove her
equality  with the   male!

Last week's game brought tears to
the eyes of Johnny "Killer" Farina,
scourge of the gridiron. The smart
little quarter was heartbroken by the
sudden reversal of the last play of
the game. Johnny had the apot figured for another play but the squad
checked his signals and so the kick
was made which ended ln inglorious
defeat for the Varsity team.
Maurice Van Vliet, who was condemned in recent issues for the sudden turn to a stern ad relentless disposer of discipline in connection with
hla army duties has agreed to both
return to his former genial self "for
the duration", and also to dispense
with army life for a small remuneration from the student body. With
regard to this small remuneration,
Maury says just a few shekkels will
do, say roughly three thousand slugs
per anurn.
Personally We doubt If Maury can
stick to his part of the agreement.
We don't think for a moment that
he'll fall to garner ln the three thousand flsh If they're slapped on the
line, but he's a pretty thoroughly
dyed-in-the-wool army boy right
now, and it'll take plenty to break
him of his sterner nature.
Jack Bingham has been hounding
the worthy paper for weeks to get
in some plugs for the royal and
ancient sport of English Ruggah. The
sports staff has unfortunately considered that the game this year was
not Royal enough, and a little too
ancient into the bargain. However,
the followers of the elliptical leather
say that if the boys on the Campus
were whipped up to a Uttle enthusiasm there would be some games
forthcoming, chiefly among the various army groups around town.
The Varsity golf Championship has
boiled down to two separate fights
between Plommer and McBride, and
all and Allen. All four of these lads
really are mighty smooth with the
clubs and paste out a mean total for
the   University   course.
Plommer especially has come up In
the last year, and has put the finishing touches on a mighty fine game
of last year. He should give Champ
McBride plenty of trouble In their
match. Hall and Allen should provide
Hall and Allen. All four of these lads
pretty evenly match-ed, with Hall
sporting a slight edge. Whichever
way it turns out, there will be a tops
golfer in possession of the silverware.

McKechnie  Cup Series
Anonymous Players Attack Senior Manager
Tom Meredith; First Cup Game, Nov. 11;
Tremblay Returns To Bolster Squad
English Rugby woke with a bang this week !
The biggest news is that the Seniors have made arrangements for a four game series for the McKechnie Cup.    The
first battle is scheduled for Armistice Day at Brockton Point.
The  flrst aign of the revival  came
on Wednesday afternoon -when Arts
played Science ln the Arst inter-faculty game  of the season.
On Thuraday morning the lid
blew when two rebel enthusiasts,
both senior players, dropped Into
the Pub to crack down on senior
manager Tom Meredith with the
charge that he Is falling down on
his Job. Apparently these two
boosters, who have chosen to remain anonymous, have taken It
upon themselves to whip up spirit
for the game this year.
On Wednesday it took only twelve
Artsmen to trounce the Red Shirts
8-3. The Engineers are still looking
for a theory to explain the event.
Al Wallace scored the lone try for
the Sclenc-emen. Al Gardiner, with
a try, ond Todd Tremblay, with a
try and a convert, accounted for tho
victors'   eight   points.
Tremblay,    returning   to    the    game
after   two   years,   turned   in   a   super
game  at  wing  and is looked upon as
a great prospect for the  Senior team.
The   game   was   the   first   In   a
series    ot    lnter-faculty    contests.
Three   teams,   Arts,   Science,   and
Frosh,   will   form   an   Intra-mural
league,   from   which   players   for
tho Senior team will be drawn.
This     season's     new     coach,     Tom
Stewart,   has   called   the   flrst   general
for    this    afternoon    at    four    o'clock.
After   this   flrst   practice,   games   between the campus teams will be  held
at  least once  a  week.
The local rugby union is very
anxious to get extra games with the
Thunderbirds and at present there
is a movement underway to have
this arranged.
Attempts are being made to have
the players excused from Saturday afternoon training once every
five weeks so that U.B.C. can play
against the senior leaguers at
Brockton  Point.
From former Senior teams, Evans
Davies, Al. Gardiner, and Todd
Tremblay are turning out. Canadian
football players Ranjl Mattu, Jim
Harmer. Mac Buck, Bob Field, and
Ernie Teagle should be out as soon
as  their season  is completed.
And then, of course, there is Tommy Williams, but who knows what
he's going to  do?
Science Speaks
Claiming that they were sabotaged last Wednesday, the Engineers rugby team have come
out with terrible threats to
slaughter the Arts In future
The Red Shirts point to a very
scrum sparked by Fraser Shepherd, Al Wallace, and "Stonewall" Narod as the first reason
for  their prediction.
The three line is considered
tho best ever ln the opinion of
the Science coaches Drs. Ounnlng, Swanson and Warren.
Doc. Miller, Ian Richards, and
Jack Tucker are the stars of
the  backflelders.

Pro-Recs Blank
Varsity  2-0
Varsity's "B" soccer team
lost their first start in the Wednesday league to the tune of a
2 to 0 beating by the Pro-Recs
at Con Jones Park.
It was nine Pro-Recs men plus two
players, Jimmy Spencer and Basil
Robinson, that licked the U.B.C.
squad. They both play Saturdays for
North Shore in the V. and D. league.
Spencer and Robinson supplied the
drive and power to down the gold
and blue boys. Although Spencer
was held scoreless by the Varsity
goall-3, Don McLean, Basil Robinson,
an ex-university man, slipped a neat
goal ln during the last half, to help
defeat Charlie Hitchen's squad.
The flrst half was played on a dry,
fast field and both sides went scoreless. The second session was a different ond more sorrowful story. It
rained hard, and despite the brilliant
ploy of the Varsity backs, the heavy
wet ball proved too difficult to handle
for  the   fast-tiring   U.   team.
Ted Spears, with ten minutes to go
in the game, took u pass from Spencer
and drove home a goal. A few minutes later. Basil Robinson scored the
.second and final goal for the Pro-
Ret- team.
Charlie    Hitchens,    after   the    game,
stated,   "Tho  fellows need  more  practice."
Outstanding for the Varsity squad
was the defensive play of Green and
The     gold    and    blue     line-up:
Wally    and    Rush    at    fullbacks;
Green    and    Robertson    at    halfs;
Stamatls,        Mlnlchello,        Calder,
Campbell    and   Hamilton   on   the
forward line.
"A"  PLAYS "B"
Coach Charlie Hitchens also announces that the next game will bo
played on the campus between the
Varsity "A" and "B" teams. The
game will be held on the soccer field
on   Wednesday.   November  6.
A goalie is needed by the soccer
squad and all aspirants should turn
out and attend practices. There is
on-e   tonight.
WHITHER .  .  .
. . . will Brud Matheson, likeable
basketball star turn? Eligible for
tho Varsity squad, Brud finds his
night job conflicting with practices. Adanacs want hint, yet a
university says no student may
play  for  a competing team.
