Gives $47,500
To University
• H. R. MacMILLAN has
donated to the university
a sum totalling $47,500. This
money is to be used mainly
in the development of a good
course in forestry at UBC.
The donation is to be split throe
ways. $7500 per year for three
years for work in forestry and
$7500 per pear for three years for
work in fisheries constitutes $45,-
000 of the total sum. Another
$2,500 is to be used to establish a
revolving loan fund at UBC for
students in forestry who are anxious to learn the subject but are
in financial difficulties.
Dr. Norman MacKenzie says; "I
am delighted that Mr. MacMillan
and B.C. Packers have asen fit
to give $47,500 to the University of
British Columbia.
"This will be used to extend
work being done in the department of forestry and in fisheries.
/These are two of the most important basic industries in the
province and our future prosperity will in large measure depend
upon our ability to maintain an
annual return from each of them
and to process and market the
products  efficiently."
Mr. MacMillan invited all 4th
and 5th year members of the Forestry Department at UBC to a
banquet for professional foresters,
January 23.
This banquet was given to promote interest in the profession of
forestry. Addresses were given
b> both Mr. MacMillan and Dean
J N. Finlayson of Applied Science.
Mr. MacMillan outlined the development of forestry and deplored
that the education in this province
for foresters is highly inadequate.
Ho distributed advance copier,
of a booklet entitled, "Forests For
The Future" to all present.
Dean Finlayson told those present that UBC gives an inadequate
course in forestry and that a survey should be made to eliminate
tho various flav/s and introduce
improvements in a new course to
bo set up in Forestry.

The proceedings leading up to
the adoption of the majority report and rejection of the minority

Twelve Steers
From Safeway
Guests at UBC
e GUESTS on the campus are
the twelve new steers just recently arrived from thc range.
They are owned by Safeway
Stores Ltd., and are loaned to the
University in a reciprocal aid agreement.
Safeway Stores send the steers
down from the range at their own
expense and pay for the steer's
feed throughout the winter.
Aggie students care for them all
through the winter, experimenting on feeding methods and generally benefitting from the experience. The work forms the basis
of some of the students theses.
In line with the care of these
animals, students are helping to
build a fence out by the steer
barn. The fence is to facilitate
the daily weighing of the steers
ta determine the value of different methods of nutritional feeding.

Councillors Should Get Together THE PEEPERS PAPERS ...
Student Council has met and passed
judgment on the two reports of the student
representation committee. With a majority
of one—decided by the vote of the chairman
—the 13-man council plan will go before
the students January 30, with perhaps minor
changes, as Council's official plan. Ihe
scheme originally provided for 14 members,
but council yanked the fourteenth, one of
the members-at-large.
Students will note that councillors are
not in unanimous agreement. LSE President Gordon Bertram still sticks to his two-
council plan, with Junior Member Allan
Ainsworth and WUS President Barbara
Greene supporting him. WAA President
Lois Reid favors neither of the schemes.
Unless we miss our guess, the general
AMS meeting called for student ratification
of the new plan will result in a mass debate
of the two schemes, with a heated decision
being made after hours of argument. This
would be the worst thing that could happen
to student government at UBC.
The question to be decided is not which
plan students like the best, but which plan
would best serve the interests of the Alma
Mater Society. This calls for expert invest!
gation and lengthy consideration. This was
supposed to be the job of the committee.
Only those students familiar with student government can know the problems of
student government. We have to acknowledge that our Student Council knows more
about their problems than we do. By this
we do not mean to deny students the right
of ratification. The students of ,the Alma
Mater Society have the final say. But they
cannot know the practical difference or understand the worth of two separate plans
for student government machinery. They
must accept the advice of the experts.
But what are we going to do when the
experts disagree?
The decision cannot be left to the whim
and fancy of individual students in a general
AMS meeting who complacently munch
sandwiches, delight at fancy speeches and
wise cracks, and stand or sit on the vote
according to their best friend's bodily position. We know of one coed who wouldn't
vote "aye" to a question because her feet
If Student Council comes to the AMS
meeting with every member in full agreement with the plan to be submitted to the
students, we feel students would be safe
in making this important decision now. But
if half of council presents* one plan and the
other half a different plan we would be
hesitant about accepting the value of the
Our student representatives would be
failing their duties if they threw the question into the laps of students in such a manner. We suggest that council members go
back to their council chambers and work
out a plan which they would all agree is
the best for the Alma'Mater Society. Do not
leave us with a plan carrying the ominous
words of battles to come: "Miss Reid, Miss
Greene, Mr. Bertram and Mr. Ainsworth
We'd Rather Have the Vacuum
Mr. Gordon Bertram, what ever else he
may be, is most decidedly an idealist. He
wishes to bring democracy to the campus,
and every liberal democrat within "hear
hear" range backs him whole-heartedly. He
has put forth a plan for.a new student government to do away with the "vacuum"
between students and the Student Council.
As a vacuum cleaner it is a good plan, but
as a practical basis for'efficiently running
the business known as the Alma Mater Society it runs a close second to Plato's theory
of the Ideas.
We assume that students read the plan
in Tuesday's paper and approved of the
motive behind it. You would be a Fascist
if you didn't, and nobody wants to be called
that. We say, however, that it's all very
well for Mr. Bertram to bring democracy
to this campus, but if he's going to attempt
this he'd better bring us real democracy or
we're going to call him a Fascist.
Now why don't we divide up the entire
campus 'into wards, elect a member from
each ward to Mr. Bertram's advisory council and really go political? It would be great
These ward representatives would have
full power of a lower house, and the executive would be the Student Council, selected
from the lower house. There's democracy
for you, Mr. Bertram! It's not only more
democratic, but it's also more efficient than
your plan. You know very well that your
advisory council would be only a figurehead
stuck in the vacuum.
But there we go again, trying to improve the human race. We do not.wish to
discount idealism. Where would the world
be without it? We wish to thank Mr. Bertram for his ideals and remind him that we
do not want our AMS government cluttered
up with useless student executives, fettered
with red tape, degraded by undemocratic
representation, crammed with silly contradictions or mocked by "lame duck" councils.
In short, we'd rather have the vacuum
than Mr. Bertram's advisory council.
• UBC's blood drive
• ON TUESDAY night about a hundred
students were scheduled to donate their
blood in the first mass donation this-year
at the Red Cross Blood Clinic. However,
about 150 students turned up. So did a few
other people who couldn't keep their appointments during the recent street-car
strike. The result was a full house with
first come, first served as the motto.
Very conspicuous were the 17 members
of Phi Delta Theta who went through in
groups of four or five. When asked what
they thought of the clinic, they said in
unison, "We're doing it for Sally Panton,
and we'd gladly do it again for her". Don
Newson just sat there and panted. Harry
Pitts wants to give his blood very Saturday
instead of going to the Commodore or the
Georgia. Maybe the pretty nurses attract
him. Leo Leavy, who was drinking coke,
muttered, "I wonder if they give me another
coke, if I gave them another pint."
I was just making myself comfortable in
the waiting room when Dr. G. A. Lamont
came along and offered to take me to the
lab on Hornby Street to see the blood being
processed. I arrived there just in time to
see the first shipment of blood coming up
from the clinic. Here the blood is taken
from the cases and placed in a room glaring
with ultra-violet light where the two-holed
stopper and glass tubing attachment is removed from each bottle. The blood is stirred with a' sterile rod to help congeal the
blood solids, and a solid rubber stopper is
inserted. This process is done efficiently,
but very carefully so that no bacterial life
can be admitted into the blood. The solid
matter settles out overnight, and next day
the serum is drawn off.
The serum is then centrifuged to settle
out any small clumps of haemoglobin, and is
then .placed in the refrigerator overnight
while some more haemoglobin settles out.
This leaves a clear serum if the donor followed his diet, or a very cloudy one if he
neglected to do so. (Samples at this stage
may be seen in the caf this week.) All the
serum is now pooled into large bottles, tested for bacteria, and shipped to Toronto. On
its arrival there it is stored for a few weeks
to ripen it. In the ripening process, the various types of blood in the bottle neutralize
each other so that the mixture can be used
on a person of any type. The blood is filtered and tested again for bacteria, after which
it is dried over vacuum at sub-zero temperature. It is then in its powdered state ready
to be shipped overseas.
Because of the recent street-car strike,
the blood clinic lost a thousand pints of
blood, more than 2% of its yearly quota. In
order to regain this thousand pints, the clinic
is making plans to operate four nights per
week. However, having nurses and doctors
in attendance is only half the picture. It
must also have the donors. When an organ-
' ization asks for financial help, some generous person can give enough to make up for
those who cannot; when the Red Cross asks
for blood, it is up to each and every individual to give his own share.
Men are dying because there is not
enough blood plasma to save them. These
men may be former students at UBC, they
may be your fraternity brothers, or even
your own relatives. Our university is proud
of the number of its students who have gone
overseas. How much prouder it could feel
if it could bring them back, saved by the
blood of the students left behind.

In order to satisfy this natural
curiosity I shall render a cursory
account of my life to this date.
I was born to a small hereditary
estate in the upper Fraser Valley,
my father, a man of substance and
a gentleman being % farmer in the
area. My mother, whom I shall
always remember as the gentlest
and quietest of spirites, was descended from a fine old French
Canadian family which, I have
since learnt, was somewhat mixed
with Algonquin blood in the middle of the 18th century.
This Indian heritage haa rendered me somewhat reserved and
darkling In my habits so that as
a small child I recall great delight
in climbing through the peculiar
rain-forests of our estate shooting
poison blow-darts, in the manufacture of which I showed more
than childish ingenuity. I mingled
little* with the neighboring rustics and was never remembered as
having uttered a single word to
my small chums, who, as I now
observe, were somewhat frighted
at my sullen and reserved habits.
Especially the blow-gun. My
mother had early destined me for
the priesthood but once she observed me dipping my darts in
rattle-snake venom and returning triumphantly from a childish
expedition to my neighbors with
three fresh scalps dangling proudly from my knickers, she wisely
decided to let me follow my natural bent and inclination.
Early in my life I shewed great
interest ln learning and my non-
nage was diligently spent in preparing for my entrance examinations. At an appropriate age, some
•   OTTAWA:   It   may   now   be
fairly assumed that N.R.MA.
troops in large numbers are not
behind the government policy of
sending up to 16,000 of them overseas as reinforcements.  Yesterday,
the figure of soldiers A.W.O.L.
was estimated at up to 700; today
—Saturday the 20th—the number
has climbed to 2000 or more.
It Is quite probable that the attitude of the soldiers is the result
of too many announcements in the
past by the government that compulsory service overseas was unnecessary coupled with an inept
introduction of what must have,
to many soldiers affected by the
sending 18,000 soldiers overseas
out of 65,000 eligible men.
The government was experiencing, in the resentment which It
stirred up, the inevitable reaction
to its policy of Intimidation, carried on over several years, to get
the soldiers overseas. Military
spokesmen have acknowledged
that such a policy was carried out
in the past, and I have heard eyewitness accounts of just how, by
ostracism and "Joe-jobs," draftees
were persuaded to "Go Active."
Is it any wonder that, after years
of pressure, and years of negative
propaganda, the men affected by
the order to send 16,206 N.R.M.A.
troops overseas resented it enough
to go A.WO.L.? You cannot build
esprit de corps overnight, and you
cannot blame a man for distrusting
the "kindness" technique introduced by General McNaughton
when he has been exposed to

it for a month after it happened.
Security is the reason—the*, fact
that the enemy must not be allowed to know that the soldiers
were being moved east to embarkation centres and that the soldiers were absenting themselves
along the way.
However, General McNaughton
has been teillrj Canadians, and
the enemy also, that troops were
proceeding overseas, and It hae
been known by hundreds of thousands of Canadians that there was
dlssaffection among the N.R.M.A.
troops. Perhaps the real point is

seven year ago, I made the tiresome stage journey to Vancouver
to take up my student residence
there. I have since lived at my
maternal grandmothers establishment in comfort and seclusion,
pursuing my studies of metaphysical research, on which topic my
master thesis will shortly be completed.
This thirst for knowledge has
led me to be reserved and little
known about the campus, and outside my circle of intimates, I have
scarcely spoken a word, to anyone
these past seven years. But I have
observed carefully our campus habits and fripperies and have been
to most major functions, sometimes in the capacity of waiter,
sometimes as guest, though, peculiarly, never as escort.
While making my observations
In the Green Room I have been
taken for a character actor or
scene shifter and while in the pub
have often been mistaken for Mary Ann. The library staff knows
me as an unobtrusive student and
at Underhllls I am distinguishable
mainly for my coffee-drinking capacities.
In all these situations I have
continued to observe and store my
. . by PEEPER
knowledge for the purpose of
writing, at some future date, my
impressions of the University. My
small circle of intimates often
meet to discuss and exchange
these observations either at our
secluded table at Underbill's or
in the more congenial atmosphere
of the Pub.
At this point in my career I regard myself as peculiarly fitted to
make the remarks and observations which will follow in subsequent essays, though often they
will reflect the opinion of the club
rather than myself.
I realize that the reader would
appreciate more information regarding my age, appelation, and
other personally distinguishing references but I am sorry to admit
that by now my secluded habits
have become so deeply ingrained
that I regard with fear the destruction of my privacy which
would inevitably follow such «
disclosure. For those of my readers who would correspond with

Paper Charges
Alberta Council
Out of Touch
•EDMONTON, Jan. 24—
(CUP)—The Gateway,
official student publication
of the University of Alberta,
charged editorially today
that Student Council of the
University was out of touch
with the student it represents and that it operates
within a circle of people who
least need its inspiration.
"We could get rid of our Students' Council tomorrow," the
Gateway said, "and half of the
students would never miss il
That is not because of any inefic-
lency on the part of Council members, but because the average student does not receive any real service from the Council as such.
"Its effectiveness is limited
sharply because it operates apart
from the average student, and
within a circle of people who
least need its inspiration. Of
course, we must realize that one
of its main duties is to co-ordinate
all student activities, but another
main duty is to represent certain
groups around the campus, and
students as a whole.
"There has been a tendency
lately to overlook the second
function in favor ot the first.
Our Council members seem to
be getting away from us, and
seem to be overlooking the
groups that they are supposed
to represent.
"In high schools, the members
must come back and report to the
classes that elected them, and also
obtain an explanation as to why
such and such a thing was done.
"In the Dominion Government,
we have to rely on reports in
newspapers, letters and public
meetings to take any part ln our
government. Therefore, it would
seem reasonable to expect some
combination of these two systems
at university.
"Students like to know who
holds what opinions and they like
to know why certain measures
have been taken, and who is responsible for executing them."

time after the war ends.
In addition, officials say, the
school will start some basic courses in the middle of each semester
and will supervise pre-enroilment
refresher and review work.
According to Dr. Thomas A
Brady, director of the university's
Veterans Service Committee, the
veteran will be allowed to make
say sensible combination of courses to train himself for a job, and
may take short non-degree programs made up of courses which
usually are used as parts of degree programs.
Returning service men  and
women also may take a larger
number of hours in a semester
than they would be allowed to
take ln a normal program, provided they show scholastic capability, Dr. Brady said.
"We think we are bound to offer
them every legitimate opportunity
to take our regular work as rapidly as possible," he explained.
A "handbook for veterans" has
been prepared by the university
and it is being mailed to former
and prospective students now in
service, to facilitate their Understanding of the educational program which the unversity is prepared to offer them.

Earnings of Tech
Grads Increase
Almost 100%
CHICAGO (UP)-Earnings of
1944 graduates of the Illinois Institute of Technology employed in
war industry averaged $193 per
month, the highest average on record, John J. Schommer, director
ot placement, reported.
The new figure represents an
increase of almost 1Q0 per cent
within six years, the average in
1938 being $100 per month. It also
shows a substantial rise over last
year, when new graduates were
averaging $169 monthly.
Schommer said that such salaries are not out of line when
those in other fields are considered. He said the present demand
for engineers is tremendous because the supply is cut off at the
source due to induction of men
into the armed services. The only
ones available now are a few classified as 4-F's.
Highest salary for any 1944
graduate is $346 a month. This
man is a mechanical engineer and
had some practical experience before graduation. The figures are
computed on the basis of a 40-
hour week and do not include
overtime pay. Men graduated with

Thunderbees Capture First Tilt
THE UBYSSEY, JANUARY 25, 1945 — Page Four
•   ALAS AND ALACK. Why is it that misinterpretation
runs so rampant on this campus. So many great men
have been misinterpreted, and now that same grievous mishap has to happen to me. Oh unhappy day!
First it is these rugger moguls who jump on me, but
now it is those grid mentors, the exponents of Canadian
Football, who are casting evil looks my way. Oh unhappy
For, walking into the News H, I come across a neatly
typed note for me upon the notice board, in the inner sanctum
of the sports department. It reads as follows:
lucius q. moyls:
you are hereby officially classed as a finkbaum . . . you
are a traitor to the cause ... what's more, you are a common
enemy to all grid experts . . .you write a column that is
detrimental to grid . . . fourteen and one half million characters die from shock, by actual count . . . better you should
be dead, too . . . fie on you, officially.
john q. quarterback.
Search Among Grid Gangs
And so it was that I was instigated to look up this character name of John Q. Quarterback. After all, it isn't every day
a fnumph goes to the trouble of tacking a note on the News
H notice board just to get in a crack at Luke Moyls.
Seeing as hoW there are very few rabid grid enthusiasts
on the Campus this year, I decided to have a look around
at the various city high schools where football fnumphs are
still bred in great numbers.
The first one, of course, was my alma mammy ol former
years", Kits. Here 1 found a bespectacled character blowing
a whistle every two seoonds to make fifty odd boys, clad in
mud-soaked rags, go through special calisthentics.
I managed to catch a glimpse of his faee as he took the)
whistle from his mouth long enough to yell at the bouncing
students. 'Twas none other than our old friend John Q.
Farina, the former star of the Blue and Gold grid outfits.
He Hadn't Seen A Ubyssey
But it was not him who had written the callous note, for
he approached me very calmly and told me to quote him a?
saying that, as usual, the Kits team would walk away with
the high school grid loop.
From there, I went to the King Edward stamping ground,
for the Blue and White team have always been traditional
enemies of Kitsilano. Here I met Ranji Mattu, putting his
team through physical jerks too. Ranj was a Varsity grid
expert, too.
But Ranji said he hadn't seen a Ubyssey for more than
a year, so it couldn't have been him.
I ended my search there, for the shades of night were
falling fast. But I swore I would someday find this character
name of John Q. Quarterback. Already my bloodhounds
are on his trail with orders to shoot on sight. Heh, heh. Look
out Mister Quarterback, you big fat sloppy fnumph!

From Stacys As Semis Open Up
• IT'S ALL OVER now for the Blue and Gold's Thunderbugs for this year but it wasn't without a great fight
that the boys finally bowed to a determined Stacy crew 40-38
Tuesday night at King Ed Gym. In the nightcap, Varsity's
Thunderbees bounced back to take the first game in their
two out of three series with Stacys, after losing to them in
the last game of the regular schedule. The score was 38-30.
The Inter B tilt was one of the       ——————^—————
best and closest affairs of the season, fhe Students were also helped out considerably by a fair
crowd of Varsity boosters but
there just weren't enough to give
the boys that extra bit of energy
which would have carried them
over the top.
Stacys found themselves on top
of a one-point lead at the end of
the first quarter and extended
their lead to four points at the
half way mark. The third canto
was Varsity's however, for the
Students came back with a vengeance and entered the third quarter nursing a one point lead.
With the score tied at 36 oil,
Varsity scored a free shot but this
was not enough to subdue the
Shoemen who notched two more
counters in the final seconds to
take the narrow victory.
Doug Davidson was in his usual
good form swishing 11 points. He
was followed by Bill McLeod and
Dave Rea with 10 and 8 respectively.
In the Senior B game, Vanity
trailed most of the evening, tying
the score once before the flnal
quarter. With a matter of a few
minutes to go and the score still
tied, the remembrance of the fate
of their younger brothers came to
their memories and without further ado proceeded to trounce the
Stacy crew.
Once again Pete McGeer was
the spark plug of the Blue and
Qold quintet, scoring 10 points.
Stacy's By Straight and Walt Zeil-
ski counted for most of their teams
points scoring seven and twelve
points respectively.

Well, it's because the subject of

Truly, the subject of SPIRIT has
almost been run into the ground,
but it has never been applied to
the UBC hockey situation before.
Now, not many students know
anything about the UBC hockey
team, do you? Perhaps that's because they have not been playing
in any league. Perhaps that's because they have not been playing
games at all. However, the boys
have one cast-iron excuse for the
above. It's because they have not
been given any support of any
kind since their formation back
in September, 1044.
Sure, they haven't been given much publicity. But their
exhibition games have been announced on this page before
the games, not after. Maybe
the MAD hasn't given them
'much support. But they have
been issued proper equipment
and some games have been arranged for them. The main

The boys have a practice every

McKechnie Tilt
by Fred Crombie
for men
•   VARSITY THUNDERBIRDS, having had a number of
good workouts this week, will send a strong fifteen into
action to meet the Vancouver All-Stars in their second
McKechnie Cup match which is slated for Saturday.
The squad is packed with dynamite in every position
and will be in top shape to accept the best that the Reps can
give them. Coach Dan Doswell has not announced his starting lineup as yet but it can be stated without contradiction
that the squad will be shosen from the following players:
Forwards Bob Lawson, Dave Morgan, Al Jones, Keith
MacDonald, Harry Kabush, Joe Pegues, Gerry Lockhart, Bill
Wallace, Johnny Hicks, and Scott Kerr; and backs Bob Croll,
Jack McKercher, Gerry Jenvey, Jim Hughes, Don Ralston,
Tom McCusker, and Maury Moyls.
Here's a brief history on each
of the players which, lt is hoped,
will promote more Interest, on the
part of the students on the campus, in the team that has a wonderful opportunity to win the McKechnie Cup.
Bob Lawson: Bob hails from Kits
where he was a standout at both
rugger and Canadian football.
Lest year while a freshman ho
won a place on the Thunderbird
lineup and at the end of the year
was awarded a big block.
Dave Morgans Although D»rt If
very small, he is one of the smartest hooks in the Senior League.
He took over the first string spot
when Norm Cooke retired early
in the season.
Al Jones: One of the steadiest
players in the scrum, Al is « 9th
year Engineer so he would certainly like to make this year a
successful one.
Joe Pegues: Joe is one of the
best wing forwards on the coast
when it comes to rugger. However,
he is also a standout at Canadian,
copping the Junior High scoring
laurels two years ago when he
played with North Van.
Keith MacDonald: Another Kit-
sie, he plays the game the way it
should be played and will be giving everything he's got on Saturday.
Harry Kabush: Harry is a John
Oliver lad and has been playing
for about five years. He is a very
good place kicker and will probably get plenty of opportunities to
show against the Reps.
Gerry Lockhart: He was reported
last week as retiring, but his great
love for the game brought him
back. He was the mainstay in the
scrum last year and will give the
Stars plenty to worry about at
his wing forward position.
Gerry Jenvey: Gerry will be
probably at scrum half to start the
tilt. Last year, he could not make
the team because of his light build
but has turned out to be such a
place-kicking star that he won the
scoring honors for the Tisdall Cup.
Maury Moyls: Here is an Ex-
Byngite who really knows his
rugby. He will lead the strong
three line with his tricky back-
field running.
Jack McKercher: Jack has been
a rugger star for the past seven
or eight years, playing with great
New Westminster as well as Vancouver clubs. He will be in at
second five-eighths.
Bob Croll: Bob is a terrific
broken field runner, having lead
record breaking Byng teams for
the past three years.
Tom McCusker: The high stepping wing three of this year's
Thunderbirds, Tom led Varsity to
the Miller Cup with his spectacular plunging.
Don Ralston: A few years back,
Don ran off with the Senior B'oys
Track championship. This is an
indication of how he will be travelling if he gets the ball.
Jim Hughes: Jim is our great
fullback and will undoubtedly be
able to match Bill Kinder in any
kicking duels that might arise.

they ran up against a team averaging over six feet, and it was a
little too much for them. But only
a little. Although they lost two
straight, both games were by two
points, and Varsity was fighting
at the flnal whistle.
Riddled by Injuries, In the
flnal game they fought tooth
and nail all the way. On the
floor they showed up as a far
more polished aggregation, but
they couldn't reach the rebounds.
And so all future Inter B team*
on the campus owe you fellows on
the Thunderbugs a debt of gratitude. Because of the fine showing
you have made this year, next
year and the year after there will
be more Varsity teams playing in
the same division.
I hope my readers will pardon
the personal note I'm injecting
here. It isn't every coach that has
an opportunity to thank his players in such a manner. But I'd like
to give my thanks to all of you:
to Gordy, Doug, Dave, Bill, Day-
nard, Pete, Cliff, Chuck and Jack.
You made any work I did a
pleasure.   Keep fighting.
