Rooms are available in Acadia and Fort camps for
home-hungry student veterans.
University camp, Sea Island, also has accommodation
for married veterans.
, Rooms are snapped up as soon as they become free,
university authorities explained today, but preferance is
given to veterans if they apply.
Housing administrator on'* the campus has 250 non-
veterans waiting for rooms and 40 veterans.
Officials ask veterans in search of accommodation to
apply at the office of the administrator in the administration
office since rooms cannot be kept open when vacated.

In a front page editorial the Brunswickan student publication called one
of the arguments against recognition
"utter imbecility" and said " if this
opinion is not widespread among
other university students, and if it is

Variety ranging from melodrama
to grisly fantasy and brilliant slapstick sparks the UBC's Players
Club   ambitious   fall   presentations.
The cast and direction deal capably with difficult staging obstacles
and come up with a professional-
appearing production.
"Dark Brown" was undoubtedly
the outstanding piece of work of
the evening. Playwright Philip
Jhonson, who turns out a play in
something loss than a week, threw
sketchy characters together in this
technically good but lifeless play.
The life Vva.s added by the actors
and their clever director, Walter
Marsh. Tiie best among the evening's performances was Sheila
Cameron's 'Bella', done with finesse, polish, and imagination. Mary
Niblock, at first shaky, warmed up
marvellously and presented us with
an old lady that wa.s consistent (a
difficult trick for a young actress)
and well imagined.
Moira Mulholland and Allan
Chalmers turned lifeless and dull
parts into real people by hard work
and good, .sincere acting. Jim SmiUi
presented 'Arthur Brown' to us
competently and vividly, but at
times approached the melodramic-
ness of James Mason. Had tile dire; lnr   stopped    this   trend   iii    re
hearsal, Smith would certainly have
walked away with the laurel wreath.
We quarrel with the presentation
of the paronic 'Mrs. Persophelous,'
had she been played as a wispy,
vague dreamy woman, instead of
the sharp, shrieking, burnt io us
character, Miss Ford would probably
have received the laughs she worked so hard for. Again, this is partly
the director's fault.
The bright sunlight through the
window (the program notes say
'evening') and the cheery room detracted from the sense and suspense
of the play. But the director must
be congratulated for giving us a
fine first half of the play, usually
so dull. He made warm comedy
where none really existed, and that
made the play a success.
Next in line is the ambitious production of "The Devil and Daniel
Webster." The very presentation
of such a difficult play deserves
credit. Although well written, the
play poses innumerable problems,
which account for its infrequent
The large unwieldly cast, the
choral speaking, the square dance,
tlie quick set change, the occult. cf_
fects, and even more problems which
the director could probably describe
in painful detail, were for the most
part   successfully   overcome.
The  eliaraeleri/.nUuiis  ure   all  dif
ficult, and were well handled in
most cases, Ron Walrosley did a
wonderful job as the famous 'Dan'l
Webster., He has a glorious voice
and a freedom that brought the part
completely to life. His big speech in
the trial scene was quite effective,
though he dreaded, we feel sure,
the very length of it.
Few actors today are capable of
delivering long speeches for some;
reason, and tend to rush through
them. Some variation would have
made it even more interesting and

Stuart Campbell (Jabez Stone)
.shows promise of things to com,',
but rather overtold us his storv.
He will soon learn that we can get
his point if more subtly and artistically presented, and then his
nice sense of movement will stand
him in  good stead.
Dick Parsons, as the diabolic
judge, gave us a little gem. Not too
much, nor too little; just perfect,
liernie  Reid   possesses  a   j;ond   voice,
a stage presence, and pleasing appearance, She is sincere, and when
she 'solfars a leetle more for har
art,' will undoubtedly be a candidate for stardom.
The setting was nice, but the
stage mechanics were much too
ccmplicated. Had the group chosen
simpler methods for removing their
scenery and getting their 'effect,'
the show would have gained. Overcomplicating things with stage wires
and technicolor flashlights only increases likelihood of something going wrong (which it did, unfortunately).
We felt that the choral speaking,
so integral part of thc play iost
uch effect by giving us the words
only; no feeling. The whole opening
scene, dance and all, was delightful. The director is to be congratulated lor the enormous amount of
work he has clone, and so well.
Phantasy is difficult; the group did
it pleasingly.
Credit for the popularity of "Rod
Peppers" is mostly Noel Coward's,
but Joan Powell deserves special
mention for her acting' and not.so-
deac! vaudeville routines. Philip
Keatley, more of an actor than a
song-dance man, also captured the
fragile Coward manner. The set we.;

Plant's  Probers
Now that the hue and cry and the headlines have died down it is time for UBC
students to ask il the Plant committee has
succecled in the task to which it was assigned.
A general Alma Mater Society meeting
coin missioned them to probe into student
finances, and undoubtedly they were a
conscientious Corps who attacked a back-
breaking chore with sincerity and vigour.
Long hours spent on their task are not a
measure of the probers' success, however, and
so it is upon their published findings that
we must base our analysis.
'Even students who say "I really don't
know what it's all about" can judge the success or failure of Plant's probers from a
purusal of.the committee's important, if somewhat verbose, report.
In a nutshell, they laid the "blame" they
set out fo find on nothing more than over-
optimism which fired all students when UBC
mushroomed overnight to second place among
Canadian universities. It was over-optimism
which pervaded all sections of the campus,
from leading student officiate to the man-on-
the-quad. It was perhaps the responsibility of
student leaders to stem the confident tide of
expansion that overtook the campus, but
then student leaders can be no more sage
than the students they lead.
The probers put great store in the value
of The Ubyssey as a medium of publicity
and in somewhat violent language, the strongest used in the entire report, blamed the
paper for some of the financial loss suffered
by social and cultural events on the campus
last   year.   "The   symphony   concerts   are   a
case in point," they said. Whether or not
this is true could keep us in debate here for
hours, but it is interesting to note that even
when symphony concerts are touted with
page one display in The Ubyssey, they still
seem to fail. It might be more reasonable io
assume that too many students have gone
home by 3:30 in the afternoon to make con-
certs at that time practical.
The Ubyssey took the Plant's probers to
task some weeks ago when the committee
was first formed. Because former Students'
Council members who were excluded from
the meeting might have much of value io
add to the discussions, the paper felt they
should be included in sittings.
It would have been too easy, we said,
for the committee to crucify former Council
members when they could not listen to the
information that might be laid against them.
It was a possibility that might easily have
become a reality, Especially, when the chairman of the probe committee was a member ot
the present Students' Council and had assumed the task of righting his predecessors
Luckily, the men and women of Plant's
committee were of sufficient intellectual
weight to avoid the easy road to villification
and presented to the student body a program
that, on he whole, paved the way for sounder
financial management in the future.
Unfortunately, many of their proposals
either did not reach the floor of this week's
general meeting or were tabled for another
session, still months away. The Plant committee seems more to have been frustrated
than to have failed.

Dear   Sir:
Another i'o >1 ball season lvis been
aclelod lo UBC Spoi-ts History, and a
comparatively successful season at
thai. 'Itie Ubys.sey columnists did a
line job of reporting on the games
and assessing the qualities of various
players. It is conceded that Dougie
Reid was the key man of the squad
although his team mates were in
there fighting for all they were worth.
I do think though that too liltlo
mention has been made of a couple
cf stalwarts whe deserve special!
mention at this time. I refer to Ruth
Genis and Denny Pierce, who did a
remarkable job as Varsity cheerleaders. They were out there for every
game, rain or shine, and did their best
to help the boys bring home the
baccn 'which incidentally they are
still looking for). Anybody who has
ever participated in group games
realizes the significance of having
nipport from the sidelines and Ruth
and Denny certainly helped to keep
that  support  alive.
Although there was a lack of variety
' in the yells, the fault lies with the
student body as a whole as the majority of us didn't take time out to
le«'n them. I'm sure that in expressing the appreciation of these girls I
am expressing the feelings of all the
Thunderbird supporters. They did a
grand job and we are hoping to see
them out there again next fall when

Someday some Hollywood producer
ia going' lo .say to his cohorts, "Letes
produce a picture about some famous
figure iti which we got Iho facts
straight, in chronological order and
have the guy behave like a normal
human being."
Until such a producer comes along,
the film capital will go 0n giving us
pictures like the "Babe Ruth Story,"
ostensibly the story of one of baseball's
greatest figures, The whole thing is
•wrapped up in such an aura of senti-
menlalism that it is hard to distinguish
it irom a soap opera on celluloid.
William Bendix, as Iho famous slugger, and a natural, right bander, looks
ludicrous as he winds up to pilch left
handed and aims his bat al, Ihe right
field  wall.
The producers of the picture just
manage lo mention the famous black
sox series of 191!) and the Babe's part
in putting baseball back on a legitimate
Babes suspension as a ballplayer

'I'o the sitill ling ol countless crippled
boys and kids from the other side of
the tracks Babe wanders through this
world of unreality hitting home runs

Clearly the producers of the picture
were more interested in tearing your
heart out than giving an authentic
account of one of baseball's greats in
baseball's greatest era.

''Tap Roots," just finished its first
run in Vancouver is an excellent attempt to produce something out of the
ordinary but the whole thing degenerates into formula fiction.
The background of the story is a
small part of Mississippi which refused
to secede from the Union when Lincoln
was made president. The people of the
valley are bottled up in their home
and the Confederates have to come
and get them.
Susan Hayward is crippled mysteriously and the Confederate major who
must capture the valley is her former
fiance, of course. Meanwhile waiting
lor her lo forget the major is Van Hef-
lin. a man who has put more men under
six feet of earth by duelling—he is
protecting the honor of some wench,
ol course --than any ten men before.
I! would have been interesting to
see   what   the   north   was   doing   and
by jim banham
where their sympathies lay in regard
to these people, what the surrounding
districts thought of them, and a lot of
other things that are completely forgotten in the producers efforts to have
boy get girl.
Be-bop came to town Wednesday
night when Norman Granz and Jazz
at the Philharmonic played at the Den-
man auditorium. It was one of the best
shows he has put on in Vancouver and
the music was of a higher calibre than
anything you can hear in Vancouver,
Granz' jazz is strictly on the "anything goes" plane and its easy to see
the boys get a great deal more kick
out of it than being regimented into
big bands.
Most surprising performance of the
evening came from old faithful Coleman Hawkins, who has retained fresh
ideas and approaches to his music
after 20 years. Joe 'Flip' Phillips, on
the other tenor sax was impressive for
his faultless construction,

what type of insurance
0—       is best for me?
That's the question a DVA student who was
also a father asked a Mutual Life of Canada representative. In his particular case, the Mutual
agent recommended an "Ordinary Life" policy
which gives the highest protection for the
lowest cost of any policy with a savings feature.
He also suggested a "family income" clause
which, for a very small additional premium,
assured the student's family a regular monthly
income in the event of his death.
But in life insurance, what is best for one man
may not be the answer to another's problem.
Individual responsibilities, circumstances, living expenses, must all be carefully studied. Your
Mutual Life agent is equipped to do this. He
has been specially trained in adapting life insurance to each person's particular needs.
Take advantage of his expert counsel noiv. Ask
him to explain the many advantages of Mutual
low-cost life insurance.

'Bird Hoopsters To Battle
SPC Falcons Here Tonight CI
Intercollegiate bas k e t b a 11
will make its debut on the
UBC campus this weekend as
the Seattle Pacific College Falcons arrived for a two-game
series with the 'Birds Friday
und Saturday night.
Since ihe Friday night tilt will be a
"first" in this season's play for both
the 'Birds and the Falcons, the potential power of the visiting club is still
somewhat of a mystery.
If experience is taken as the means
of comparison, the Falcons are scheduled to hold an edge in the play. Ten
lettermen are returning to the Seattle
team's roster this year, while only
six men are returning to the 'Birds
from last year's dub.
Judging from recent prMtices, however, the shooting ability of the 'Birds
is on the upswing. Both Mitchell and
Boyes are getting their shooting eyes
"on" and Forsyth's dunk shots are
improving rapidly.
The 'Birds are also slated to hold
an edge over the Falcons in the height
department. Big Gordie Cochrane of
the Falcons who stars in the centre
slot is only some 6' 2" compared to
„ Forsyth's six foot five inch frame.
And there is also one other ray of
hope in the eyes of eager sports fans
on the UBC campus. That is the fact
that UBC has long been famous for
its fighting dubs.
If the victor in the two game exhibition series this weekend is uncertain, there is one thing thai' is sure.
That is the fact there will be a UBC
team on the floor that will be giving
all it has got and will be driving for
a victory right down to the final
Starting time of the game Friday
night is 8:00 and tickets for the fracas
will be on sale at the door.

Those grandstand quarterbacks
who sat through five Thunderbird
football defeats this year and then
after each game left the stadium
muttering to their friends how they
would remedy the situation, will
now have a chance to voice their
opinions in public.
The sports desk of the Daily

football situation on the campus
needs to be revised, is offering
a prize to the student who comes
forth with the most feasible solution to the problem,
Naturally, no one person can hope
to revolutionize the game at UBC
but by hearing the 'opinions of a
large number of students, the
Sports Desk feels that valuable
ideas can be found.
A choice of a carton of cigarettes, or a case of coke will be the
bail' held out to the students in
return for their suggestions.    "
The contest will open for all of
next week to give every one a
chance to think the thing over before handing in their ideas to any
member of the Sports Desk or
leaving them in the Pub.
The suggestions should bc written out plainly on a piece of paper
in a simple, legible form and ad
dressed to the Sports Editor of the
Daily  Ubyssey.
Anyone on the campus is eligible
for the contest and by getting a
large cross section of si'udent opinion, perhaps some useful ideas
can be collected and turned over
to athletic officials.
Winner of the contest will bc
announced at the end of the month
and the choice of prizes given to
the lucky person.
