Bibbs Elected.. . .
... Federation Head
VANCOUVER, B.C., THURSDAY, JANUARY 4, 1945
Bibbs Heads NFC US
• DICK BIBBS, President of the AMS, was elected president of
thc National Federation of Canadian Universities held at
Western University In London, Ontario, recently.
The delegate from Western was elected chairman of the
conference held during the Christmas holidays.
Dick Bibbs and Ken Creighton, treasurer of the AMS, attended the conference as representatives of UBC.
They left on December 20 and are expected to return about
January 6. A detailed account of the decisions of the conference
will be published.
The purpose of this conference, which has been the first held
in several years, was more to reestablish the Notional federation
of Canadian University as It was originally before the war, than
to discuss the Individual problems of the attending universities.
Some of the subjects expected to be discussed, however, were
the rehabilitation of the ex-servicemen who are returning to
u lverslty, the sponsoring of exchange students between universities, and perhaps the establishment of an alliance with
European universities after the war.

Creighton Second..
. . . UBC Delegate
Air Unit
Definitely
Cancelled
• OFFICIAL WORD was received   from   the   Department   of
National Defence Tuesday that the
University Air Training Plan ia to
be disbanded.
In a letter to President N. A. M.
MacKenzie, A. L. MacDonald,
deputy minister of National Defence, said that the UBC squadron
will disband commencing December 31, in line with the policy of
cutting down the Air Force.
Word was received Wednesday,
December 27, in an Ottawa press
release that  the  plan was to be
continued.
No official word was received by
air force officers here until early
this week, when a telegram stating
simply that the force was to be
disbanded arrived from Ottawa.
So far no concrete instructions
have been received.
The announcement was a complete surprise to air force officers
here. The last word received before Christmas was that the plan
was to continue, and that a full
four year syllabus, to coincide with
the college course would be given.
Two hundred fifty students are
now enrolled in the UBC squadron.
COLLEGE TERMS
PROPOSED FOR
HIGH SCHOOLS
• STATE COLLEGE, Pa. Jan. 4
—(UP)—A postwar educational system in which two years of
college will be part of the public
school program was forecast by
Dr. C. O. Williams, associate professor of education in charge of
teacher placement at Pennsylvania State College.
Ex-servicemen, said Dr. Williams, will demand college-level
training in their home communities, thus giving the same Impetus to the junior college movement
that the first world war gave to
universal high school training.
In order to promote "a steady
rise in the educational level of the
American people," Dr. Williams
advocated publicly financed training, adding that civilians as well
as servicemen have become "educationally conscious" as a result of
the wartime stress on technical
training.
Boy Finds Sewing
Course 'Toughie'
• CLEVELAND Jan.   4-(UP)-
Seventeen -year -old     Andrew
Palzes is no sissy, but he admits
it's "plenty tough" to be thc only
boy in Collinwood High School's
sewing classes here.
Andrew, six feet tall and weighing 200 pounds, is majoring in
sewing, which includes courses
like tailoring, dressmakin, and
trade and production sewing.
The lad, whospends all his spare
time with a 30-inch manikin for
which he has designed 50 costumes, says he still gets razzed
by his girl classmates.
Artsmen Plan Big Week Dr. Weir
• A GALA ARTS WEEK will materialize before the eyes
of  rejuvenated  Arts men  and  women,   according  to
Gordon Campbell, President of the Arts Undergraduate
Society.
"January 8 to 12 will see a definite carry-through bf the
Arts spirit exhibited at the fall Arts Pep Meet. Every effort
will be made to have each function different and interesting,"
stated Campbell.
"The Pep Meet and Dance on Friday noon in the Brock
with the Airforce Band will set a new high in campus entertainment," the executive claims.
"The appearance of Paul Robeson, tentatively set for
Thursday noon, will typify the high standard and spirit aimed
at by the Artsmen and their executive," continued AUS
president Campbell.
"Bigger and better things are in store and will come to
light next week, so all loyal Artsmen and Artswomen, be on
the lookout!" stated Campbell.
The programs is as follows:—
MONDAY—Basketball game—Arts vs. Science (tentative) NOON.
TUESDAY—Men's Pep Meet—Arts 100—NOON

Micelli's band.	
WAC Blood Drive Quota
Set at 2000 Pints
• TED CHAMBERS, president of the War Aid Council and
organiser of the forthcoming student blood drive, wishes
to be able to tell the Red Cross that UBC will supply a quota
of 2,000 pints of blood.
This will mean that 9000 students       ——————————
will have to sign pledges stating
that they will donate one pint each
to the blood bank. Forms for this
purpose may appear in later issues
of The Ubyssey.
The need now is urgent. Because of the Nazis' robomb at-.
tacks   on   England   a   great
amount of the blood already
donated has been destroyed.
Chambers wishes to remind
everyone that the operation is a
trifling one. It doesn't hurt, and
takes little time. The Red Cross
has informed him that persons who
are at the age of Varsity students
are ideal donors, since their blood
is in good condition and the operation affects them the least.
Donations will be spread over
several weeks, and about fifty
students can be accommodated
each night. Students may pick
their own tune and day, and
literature pertaining to diet and
rest will be distributed.
"The need is urgent," Chambers
said, "and I hope the students will
respond fittingly."
Players Club Calls
For New Members
• PLAYERS' CLUB will have
openings for a limited number
of men for parts in one of the
Spring Plays. Ted English, president, said that those interested
should contact him soon, and that
he would like to see returned men
turn out.
Acadia Girls
Out-talk New
Brunswick
(CUP) Jan 4—Girls' Varsity debating team of Acadia University
defeated the University of New
Brunswick by a two-to-one decision in upholding the negative of
the resolution "that there should
be a unified system of education
in Canada" in the first of two inter-collegiate debates held in
Frederickton recently.
Leader Eleanor McCain and Dorothy Keeping of the Acadia team
contended that the diversity of
Canadian culture would make a
unified system of education impossible.
UNB debaters Kay Lyons and
Margaret Vince countered that a
unified system of education was
essential to the unity of Canada.

Red Cross "Snow Ball"
Frolic Planned for
Jan. 23 at Commodore
By MARIAN BALL
•    "SNOW BALL" is the name chosen for this year's Red
Cross Ball which will be held January 23 at the Commodore, Mary Frances Trumbull, chairman of the ball committee
announced today.
___________________________ Raffle tickets will be distributed
to fraternity and sorority members
on Monday. Interfraternity and
intersorority competitions held on
a basis of membership quotas in
each group will include the sales
of tickets in downtown stores by
sorority girls. Tickets must be
in by January 23 to the AMS office
says Pat Cunningham, who is in
charge of the raffle. The twenty
raffle prizes will Include the fur
coat and matching hat donated annually by R. J. Pop plus a wool
suit from Spencer's and a dress
from the Hudson's Bay Company.
COSTUMES SECRET
The chorus under the direction
of Joan Anderson held its first
practise yesterday. Costumes for
the chorus will remain a secret according to Casey King who is in
charge.
Dance tickets again sold under
tho "dutch treat" system must be
purchased by all fraternity and
sorority members. The price will
be *3.00.
The name of the orchestra in
attendance at the ball will be
announced later.
Sorority candidates for the title
of Red Cross Queen have not yet
been chosen.
The Red Cross Ball, highlight of
the university social season, wm
initiated in 1941 when the Interfraternity Council held a "dutch
treat" Ball in aid of the Red Cross.
The original idea was to have the
ball an all-Canadian affair with
Interfraternity Balls on each Canadian campus the same night but
exams on other campuses conflicted so the idead was dropped.
CHORINES STAR
The floor show of the first ball
included the presentation of the
Hawaiian War Chant by the chorus
from the Junior League Cabaret
and a UBC chorus of coeds in
rhumba costume.
The first ball netted $2000 and
was so successful that the Red
Cross Ball has become a campus
institution.
In 1942 UBC Floradora girls gave
the Can Can Chorus and Mr. Pop
donated the first fur coat to the
raffle.
SUCCESSFUL RECORD
The next ball was a success despite one of Vancouver's worst snow
storms and for the first time a Red
Cross Ball Queen was chosen from
sorority beauties.
...Last year's ball, which netted
over |6500 saw an Alpha Gam,
Anne Bennett, crowned queen amid
a scene of Arabian Night's splendor. A chorus of Arabian beauties
appeared in the floor show.
60 Students
Bounced
By Varsity
• SIXTY UNDERGRADUATES
have been asked to leave UBC
because of failure to meet Christmas examination standards, according to a statement issued by
registrar C. B. Wood.
The names of all those who are
subject to call for the army have
been submitted to the Wartime
Mobilization Board.
No figures on the distribution of
these students as to year and faculty have been released for publication.
Last year only 48 students were
required to leave, but an addlton-
al 82 were called by selective service.
The calling of the lower SO per
cent of non-science students after
the final exams last Easter makes
it unnecessary for any students
who have met the requirements
of the university this Christmas
to be called.
45 Register
For Shortened
Course
Varsity
• REGISTRATION for a specially shortened course for ex-
servicemen or servicemen on extended leave reached the unofficial total of 45 up to press tune on
Wednesday.
Most of the men taking the
course are airmen who have been
discharged or who are on reserve
to the RCAF.
The men will take three courses in the second term, starting on
January 3 and continuing until
April.
During May and June or July
and August they will take another
two courses in order to complete
their 15 units for one year's credit.

Today on the World's Battlefronts
THE WESTERN FRONT
• PARIS, Jan. 4-(BUP)-Tension mounted on the western
front today with reports that American Armies were building up
their strength for a showdown
battle wth the Germans in Belgium.
Marshal Von Runstedt's cone-
shaped spear which he has dug
into Belgium is believed to be
the focal point of these coming attacks. The Germans were reported
to   be   sending   additional   troops
and  tanks into the  salient in an
effort to meet the blow.
Allied Armies have been completely swept out of Germany
with only two small footholds remaining, Allied headquarters admitted today. Dispatches also indicated that further American
withdrawals may have to be made
into northeastern France.
German attacks which began
two days ago on the Saar Rhine-
land front continued throughout
the day. Allied spokesmen, however, described them as being only diversionary blows and do not
consider them serious.
General Patton, it was reported,
continued to make gains into German lines northeast of Bastogne.
The Nazis bolstered their lines in
that area and were said to be massing troops at a road junction 10
miles to the north. About 20 German divisions are operating in the
breakthrough area, a Third Army
report said.
In the air the Germans were
pounded for their 12th straight
clay as more than 1700 heavy Allied war planes smashed at German communication centers while
fighters raided rail lines supplying the V-2 rocket launching area
in Holland.
THE PACIFIC FRONT
• AMERICAN Headquarters in
the Pacific, Jan. 4-CBUP)-
American doughboys swarmed a-
shore in new landings on Min-
doro Island in the Philippines a-
galnst no opposition, headquarters  announced  today.
At the same time as these new
landings were carried out, huge
fleets of American warplanes
hammered at Luzon Island for the
fifth consecutive day and set fire
to more than 20 Japanese vessels.
Rail installations, reservoirs and
coastal targets also received attention from yank airmen, said
headquarters.
The United States Fleet, in a
Philippines Sea and hurled its carrier-based planes against military

THE UBYSSEY
Resolving Not to Resolve
JANUARY 4, 194S
Now that 1945 has grown enough to
progress under its own steam without the
aid of New Year backslappers and tipsy
well-wishers, we would like to ponder the
absence of New Year Resolutions.
It appears that well meant resolutions
are no longer fashionable. Some people still
persist in listing their faults and character
flaws and mistakenly calling them resolutions, but on the whole the New Year resolutions are on the way out. And good riddance
to them. For resolutions in the past have,
in most cases, been lists of things the re-
solver could never hope to accomplish while
still being human. They served mainly to
give the world a feeling of starting out with
a clean slate.
We still need to start out with a clean
slate, but petty faults like smoking, snoring,
swearing are often too deeply rooted to be
erased in one fell sweep. Major faults of
groups of people and countries, too, are too
well established to be eliminated by a scrap
of paper bearing the word "We resolve ...'"
This business of swearing off this and
that, resolving not to do this or to do that,
is starting out on the wrong foot In the
march through the new year. When the
novelty of righteousness wears off, the vices
return in abundance. What is needed is for
everyone to say in private "I won't quit
smoking unless I am sure I want to. I will,
however, try to be a better citizen—a better
citizen of Canada and a better citizen of the
world—I will strive, above all, to be a more
honest, sincere, and helpful man or woman."
Then when the pledge is broken, it can
only be proved by the conscience of the
person who pledged. And the guilty feeling
of letting yourself down that comes with
breaking a resolution made in the spirit of
new year celebrations would be replaced
with a personal realization that you had let
your fellow man down. This realization of
failing your neighbor would carry more
weight for future new years that the halfhearted guilt of breaking a few silly
resolutions.
The Ubyssey makes no resolutions. We
will only try, as we have tried in the past,
to be sincere and helpful to the limits of our
abilities. We sincerely hope that the University and the public in their relations will
also try to be sincere and helpful.
in a
I!
Fate Goes to the Brock
Council's decision against allowing the
Arts executive to hold an informal at the
Commodore at the conclusion of Arts' Week
may on first glimpse seem harsh. But on
investigation of the principles and facts involved Council's decision is just.
Conversely, the requests of the Arts
executives may at first seem completely
justified, but on second reading of the facts,
their case appears completely justified only
with the exclusion of the rights and privileges of other groups on the campus.
No one disputes the moral right of Arts-
men to hold a Commodore affair. Arts Week
ranks as one of the most progressive actions
of any student faculty this year. It is only
fitting that the affair be concluded with an
impressive dance.
But the best laid plans "gang aft agley"
and the joker this time is a well-planned
social calendar. January is filled to overflowing with functions, the main one being
the Red Cross Ball. To insert another Commodore affair into the calendar and thus
arouse competition would be foolish. Council
would have liked to O.K. the Arts Informal
at the Commodore, but instead were forced
by circumstances to change the location to
the Brock.
It was pointed out that a well-planned
Brock Dance would be more entertaining
than the usual Commodore affair. If the Arts
executives keep up their progressive and
impressive show of. spirit there is no reason
why they could not transform a Brock Dance
into a real entertainment attraction. In any
case, L'affaire Commodore is no one's fault.
Arts Week deserved the Commodore, Council wanted it, but fate turned thumbs down
on the "Commodore" part.
campus sketches
•    SITUATED  IN  Spokane,  Washington,
Gonzaga university is one of 227 institutions of learning throughout the world conducted by the Society of Jesus, a teaching
Order of the Catholic Church. Gonzaga was
founded in 1883 by a pioneer Jesuit missionary of the northwest, Father Joseph M. Cat-
aldo, S.J. Located on the north bank of the
Spokane river at the edge of a large residential district, the campus and buildings
are close to the city centre of Spokane.
Although conducted by members of a
religious order, Gonzaga university makes
no distinction of creed, color or race in the
admission of students. Neither does she
force her own religious convictions on those
of other faiths. She takes a definite and open
stand on her own ground and is definitely
anti-atheistic. Religion is the only solid basis
of morality and education without religion is
incomplete. But the large percentage of non-
Catholics every year at Gonzaga is ample
proof of her principle of toleration and sympathetic understanding of religious differences.
PROGRESSIVE EDUCATION
Gonzaga's educational system is guided
by the famous time-tried 'Ratio Studiorum',
a body of rules and suggestions which retains
the valuable features of the older learning
and at the same time incorporates the best
results of modern progress. Mere acquisition
of knowledge, though a necessary accompaniment of education, is not viewed as an
end of the process at .Gonzaga. The end is
culture, and mental and moral development.
The purpose of Jesuit teaching is to lay a
solid sub-structure for further scientific, professional, cultural and civic development.
The University is made up of the following colleges and schools: the Graduate
School of Philosophy and Science, Mount St.
Micahel's (for graduate students of the So
ciety of Jesus only), the School of Law, the
College of Arts and Sciences, the St. Francis
Xavier College, Sheridan, Oregon (Undergraduate liberal Arts college for students of
the Society of Jesus only), the College of
Engineering, the School of Education, the
School of Nursing, and the School of Business Administration.
FULLY ACCREDITED
Gonzaga is fully accredited by the
Washington State Board of Education and
by the Northwest Association of Colleges
and Secondary Schools and is approved by
the American Medical Association.
The campus is compact and beautiful
with well kept lawns, shrubs and trees. The
Administration Building is a large brick
building facing Boone Avenue and contains
the faculty offices, the library, the student
chapel, lecture halls, and laboratories for
physics, biology, and engineering. The
Chemistry building is a brick building located on Astor street and is used exclusively
for chemistry and chemical engineering.
HOUSES NAVY
De Smet Hall, a modern dormitory, was
erected in 1925 as a memorial to the first
Jesuit missionary of the Northwest, the Reverend Peter J. De Smet, S.J. It will accommodate two hundred students and at present
is used by the Navy V-12 unit. Another
dormitory, Goller Hall, houses fifty students.
The University Infirmary is a modern
building with offices for the doctors, a resident registered nurse, fifteen beds, an examination room, surgery, and diet kitchen. The
University Gymnasium is situated at the
east end of the Administration Building.
The Stadium contains a turf football field
and a quarter mile cinder track and has a
seating capacity of 1,500. Concrete handball
and tennis courts, an obstacle course and a
large turf field are also on the campus.
• IF THE PERSON who wrote
the letter to the editor signed
"Arts '43," discussing replies of
Varsity students to queries about
their ideas on necking, would sign
the letter, the Ubyssey would consider publishing it under Letters
to the Editor. All letters must be

seriousness
By DENIS BLUNDEN
•   ONE OF the worst murders of   '
the new year is to return gaily
to the lecture room to confront a
professor who hoped never to see
you again, and have the professor mumble something about "The
books we will study this term
which, of course, you have all
read in the holiday."
Which we have all read in the
holiday? Who besides an overanxious librarian would read text
books over the holiday? Professors •
or book fiends, yes. Normal
people, no. Requests to read heavy
literature over Christmas are a-
bout as practical as a Gideon Bible
in the Science common room.
Arts students in particular get
too much heavy literature in tha
period during and before examin-
aUons to continue absorbing deep
thoughts throughout Christmas
and the "Happy New Year" period. The.reading list of those students who lead in the holidays
would probably lean towards mysteries and light short stories rather than the works of Huxely,
Maclvor, Chesterton, or even the
sometmes interesting chapters ot
Havelock Ellis in his "Uttle* essays of Love and Virtue.
The following Christmas reading list is not meant to be representative, but it conveys the general idea:
"The Case of the Lucky Legs,
The Case of the Lame Canary, The
D. A. Calls it Murder, The Spanish
Cape Mystery, The Lodger (Mr.
Sleuth—not Rodger), two pages
from Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia
Wolfe (just a dribble of consciousness) , one chapter from Little Essays of Love and Virtue (read the
day after New Years Eve), and
finally, three old copies ot Esquire
published before the dispute with
the U.S. Post Office.
I enjoyed my reading. I can't
remember any great thoughts
gleaned from the reading exoept
that if I was Perry Mason I'd pay
more attention to my secretary
and that Ellery Queen must be
using bootleg gas to run his old
Deusenburg.
Whatever the relative merits of
murder stories and acknowledged
classics, there is a definite place
for each. Classics usually become
dull when they are required reading and probably murder mysteries
would be downright unbearable if
a student, had to read them for
a course. Each has its place in
everyday life, and the place of
murders is during holidays. All
classics and no murder mysteries
makes for a dull student, All murder mysteries and no solid literature makes for a shallow minded
student. • '
But the greatest murder is unwritten. It is arriving for an 8:30
the first day of lectures, having
a sensible professor who doesn't
come, and then having to sit down
and write something out of nothing. Can I help it if the result
is nothing and you have been
reading it for the last minute?
Perry Mason would know what
to do in such a situation. I don't.
'KALCIUM KIDS'
AGAIN ENJOY
MOM'S COOKING
• CHAMPAIGN-URBANA, 111.
Jan. 4-(UP)—After loaning
their appetites to the University
of Illinois for three months in the
interest of science, nine local 'teen
-age boys, who dubbed themselves
the "Kalcium Kids," are back
at home thoroughly enjoying
"Mom's cookin'."
The study, said to be the first
of its type ever made, was conducted to determine calcium requirements of boys of high school
age.
The youths lived at a home on
the university campus and their
diets were carefully planned and
regulated — they even drank redistilled water, having to carry it
in thermos bottles when they left
the home for any length of time.
It wasn't all cold, scientific living, however. The boys had jobs
such as mowing lawns and carrying newspaper routes. Tennis,
badminton and table tennis were
some sports they played and two
airplane modeling contests were
held.
A university movie projector and
visual-aid films were sources of
enjoyment three times a week.
The boys selected the films and
ran the machine themselves. And
although most of their timo was
spent at the niversity, the "Kalcium Kids" paid daily visits to
their homes.
Expert Disclaims Vets
As Potential Criminals
(EDITOR'S NOTE: Wide attention and study Is being
given today to the possibility of a postwar crime wave In
the United States. Following is an exclusive Interview with
a Harvard University professor who ls perhaps the nation's
No. 1 authority In his Held.)
By JOSEPH NOLAN
United Press Staff Correspondent
• CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (UP)—Jan. 4—If Johnny comes
marching home to a job and an understanding environment, the widely-predicted postwar crime wave never will
materialize, Dr. Sheldon Glueck, noted Harvard criminologist,
declared today.
The contention that servicemen
—obsessed with the "killer in-
stincf'-^will lay down a rifle only
to pick up a sawed-off shotgun,
presupposes an economy that has
bogged down completely into unemployment and privation, Dr.
Glueck said' In an interview. The
urge to kill, he explained, normally disappears with the necessity
of killing im war.
NO RISE
Those forecasting that war-
trained Americans will become
post-graduates in crime have misinterpreted criminal statistics, said
Dr. Glueck who is considered one
of the world's greatest legal authorities. He noted that in the
postwar years 1865-75 and 1918-28
no substantial increases occurred
ln serious crimes, though the number of thefts and minor offenses
rose. During the years following
World War I, he said, imprisonment for homicide and rape
showed no higher proportions a-
mong ex-servicemen than among
ordinary  offenders.
"Crimes like robbery and sex
offenses depend not only on mental makeup, but In large measure
on the nation's economy," said Dr.
Glueck. Is the veteran going to
be able to work and earn a decent
living with a sense of economic
security for the future, or will
events tend to make him believe
that he is justified in stealing?
Will he have a job that pays
enough to enable him to marry at
a reasonably early age, and start
a home of his ovm? If he will, he
will adapt himself much more
readily to a decent life."
Though economic security is important, Dr. Glueck said, other aspects of rehabilitation also must
be considered.
"Society's civilian  general staff.
must collaborate with its military
general staff in pieparing communities to receive veterans and
preparing veterans to return to
wholesome and happy community
life."
SUGGESTED REFORMS
Certain definite reforms should
be initiated even before the war
ends, according to Dr. Glueck:
1. Increase the number of mental

servicemen, their sweehearts or

Western Gentlemen, now famous
as Canada's Spotlight Band, the

voice, who has combined some of
the best announcing on the networks with performances of first-
class radio acting. Don Sims, who
did much sterling work on the
"Victory Parade," is the announcer for the new program which
will be under the direction of
Bernie Braden, one of the most
versatile men in Canadian radio.
Prize Folder Collection No
Match for Match Shortage
By MARY LAING
United Press Staff Correspondent
•   CHICAGO (UP), Jan. 4—Peter J. Schmitz, who has a
collection of almost 17,000 full match folders, is a little
nervous about rumours of an impending match shortage.
This may seem paradoxical, but
Schmitz explains that he is a cigar smoker as well as a match collector and is afraid that he may
have to cut into his collection,
which he calls his "own personal
treasure."
FULL FOLDERS
The trouble is that In order to
qualify for a place in his collection, a folder must be full.   He
says he has thrown away or given
away more folders than he has
kept because they either were
only partially filled or the same
as another in the collection.
Schmitz, who is an elevator operator at the U. S. custom house
here, started his collection 10 years
ago.

Cornell Diet
Table Has
Waiting List
• ITHACA, N. Y., Jan. 4—
(UP)—There's a special
table in the Cornell University dining hall that presents a striking illustration
of what the right food can do
for human beings.
To be found at this table are
students whose ailments, allergies,
and weight problems call for special diets. Here diabetic students,
those with severe allergies, ulcer
cases and many other are provided with Individual menus
throughout the academic year.
APPETITES RETURN
Results at the diet table have
been so good that a long waiting
list has grown up. Dr. Charlotte
Young, trained dietitian in charge,
remarks that "Even to an experienced dietitian, the changes in
human beings which can be
wrought with good feeding of a
co-operative subject are breathtaking."
Citing several successful cases, >
Miss Young picked out "Jim," an'
attractive, self-assured young man,
who she said a year ago was "a
scrawny, red-eyed, mousy chap
with scarcely a word to say."
ULCER CURES
Another was "Susan," who, despite a newly-diagnosed duodenal
ulcer, can go comfortably to college, eating with a congenial crowd
and, by seeing others, realize that
she alone doesn't get all the bad
breaks.
Matching Miss Young's enthusiasm is that of the students themselves. "Ruth," who made "beautiful progress" ln gaining IS
pounds and thereby tremendously
improving her general appearance,
said, after her final meal at the
diet table, "You know, Miss Young
I never used to have dates and do
things, but now I never walk
home from class alone."
WEIGHT-LOSERS
Special diets also are provided
for students who wish either to
gain or lose weight. Referring to
a 5-foot-2 "Sally," whose pride
and joy now is a smooth size 14
where last summer she woefully
wore a size 20, Miss Young says
"a little good nutritional advice,
a lot of sympathetic morale boosting did that."
Maintaining the special diet
table is tho U.S. School of Nutrition working in co-operation wth
the Cornell clinic and the New
York State College of Home Economics.

GIRL WINS $200
AWARD ON PATH
TO ART CAREER
e MINNEAPOLIS, Minn.'-(UP)
Joyce Woner Wolner, 18-year-
old art student, recently won a
$200 award in the national Inger-
soll art competition with her
painting, "Carnival Night." This
painting, which she completed
when she was 16 years old, ls a
night scene of a carnival crowd,
viewed from a vantage point on
a merry-go-round. The painting
was exhibited in the annual Women's International Exposition in
New York.
Painting was primarily a hobby
with Miss Wolner until she became
seriously interested in art in high
school. In high school she spent
an hour in class each day painting,
but now she studies during the
day at the Minneapolis School of
Art and sketches houses and night
scenes in the evening. She works
these sketches into finished pictures later at home.
Tor Break or Not to Break
Resolutions is UBC Query
By DON STAINSBY
•   "I DO HEREBY resolve and swear that . . ." seemed to
be the password on New Year's Eve. It has changed but
slightly in wordage.
Now, when a person raises his right arm with the look
of piety on his face it is to say, "I do hereby resolve and
swear that I shall do my best to break every resolution that
I was foolish enough to make under various influences on the
night of December 31st."
EXCEPTION TO
One, however, remains only
slightly changed. Worded before,
it perhaps went something like this,
"I swear to get down to work and
study for my midterms and April
exams." Now that students are
getting their marks the modified
form is like this, "I resolye to get
down to work and study NOW."
BEST EXAMPLE
What may be the best example
of change in policy of resolutions
was exemplified by the student
who staggered out from the head
of the lineup staring fixedly with
rapidly glazing eye at the sheet
he held ln his hand. One of his
fellows ln the lineup asked him
what his marks were, and his only
reply was a groan.
When asked what change
marks would make in his New
Year's resolutions he merely
pointed to a large Victory Loan
poster. It consisted of various
crossing beams of light, and
held in the spotlight of the
largest one was the slogan,
"Aim high."
COUNCIL RESOLVES
When asked what the Council
had up its sleeve for the new year
Alan Ainsworth, acting-president,
stated:
"The Council has set out as its
policy for the new year that the
provision of a good five-cent cigar
and free beer for the student body
will be of prune Interest."
He stated as his personal resolution that he would become a hermit and brew kickapoo julce^-for
sale only.
'Mitch' Mitchell, dignified custodian of Brock Hall, resolved that
with the help of the student body
he would see to it that the Brock
Hall's new face, (which' was lifted
during the holiday), would be kept
up.
AINSWORTITS IDEA
While Alan Ainsworth was meditating about council policy he expressed his opinion of New Year's
resolutions,   which   wasn't   much.
Ho said that it reminded him of a
story, which we feel worthy of a
place.  It goes something like this:
It would seem that this fellow was bothered with headaches, and that they troubled
him so much and so constantly
that he decided to do something about lt. So he went to
see his doctor.   After a brief
discussion as to the nature of
his ills the doctor asked the
man:
'Do you smoke?"
"No, doctor, never in my life
have I touched a cigarette."
"Well, then, do you drink?"
"Why doctor, I have always
been on the wagon."
"Well, how about women? Do
you have any Interest in
them?"
"Doctor," said the man, red
creeping up around his cheeks,
"I am afraid my halo Is slipping."

said that they had their usual
resolutions, namely, that "we will
prove the obvious and be much
better than the Mussoc, and that
we are going to run the Ubyssey
off the campus."
He also said that one of his personal aims was to get more men in
the club.
The members seem-to think that
the club needs some perking up,
for they have decided to walk out
every morning, "to keep in condition."

WHAT A XMAS GIFT
•   TOURING WASHINGTON with a basketball team is
one of the sweetest Christmas presents a sports scribe
ever gets. And so it was with me. Leave me tell you about
some of the great exploits of your UBC Thunderbirds and
you will see what I mean.
After a tiring trip to the great Puget Sound port of
Seattle, the cagers trundled off to the Civic Auditorium to
take a look at the gym. One by one they fell back in awe
as they stepped through the portals.
The floor was more than twice the size of our own, although the basketball court itself was not much larger than
UBC's. There were nothing but seats all around the place.
Hardly any people at all.
We had often heard of the famous Coast Guard quintet
from the Oregon hoopers when they were here for that
thrilling two-day stand at the end of the Christmas exams.
But there they were right in front of us, trying to beat the
pants of! a smart Boeing team. They weren't doing too
badly at that.
Quite A Travelling Salesman
What happened in the Alpine game should not happen
to any outfit. But it did to the Thunderbirds. However, they
went over to Bremerton on the streamlined ferry the next
night and fought to a deserving victory over the Sailors.
Riding the rails again the next day, they found little
entertainment except for a little character who kept roaming
up and down the aisle selling various wares to the travellers.
He had quite a routine, and it seemed he changed his coat
each trip, bnt the camouflage wasn't very effective.
Arriving in Spokane Saturday night, Coach Maury Van
Vliet rounded up his charges for a, short workout in the "Y".
Returning to their hotel later, they ran into the University
of Washington Huskies down in the lobby. The Huskies had
just handed Gonzaga U their second straight trouncing.
A few hoopers from the University of Idaho club who
played the Air Force squad that night, wandered in along
with some Eastern Washington melon-tossers.
But business began when the players were all in bed.
Coaches Maury Van Vliet, Hec Edmundson of the Huskies,
and Babe Brown of the Idaho team settled down to a short
midnight conflab.
Happy New Year In Spokane
The Thunderbirds ran into trouble in the form of All-
American Gail Bishop Sunday night as the Fort Lewis Warriors passed a horrible defeat on them. The Warriors took
advantage of their battle drill training to send three ace
'Birds to the bench with injuries.
Add to that the fact that the Warriors were having a
hot night and you can understand how they potted 90 counters in forty minutes.
That night was New Year's Eve, and the UBC hoopers
spent a quiet evening in their hotel. They broke into the
coach's room at midnight and everyone toasted the new year
with ice water.
Their final game was the thriller. It wasn't close, but
it was still a thriller. The Thunderbirds were an entirely
different club, and outwitted the Soldier squad with clever
plays which drew loud applause from the hoop-minded
citizens of Spokane.
Lecturers will have to excuse the odd nod from these
fnumphs these days. That 16-hour trip back on Tuesday was
no thriller!
NOTICE
There will be a meeting of
the Munro Pre-Med club In
Science 200 at noon Friday.
A football player was asked
what he had done with his expense money. He replied: "Part
went for liquor, part for women

• ALL-AMERICAN GUARD—Varsity hoop fans may get
a chance to see this year's edition of the famous Harlem
Globe Trotters in action next Friday noon hour, although
arrangements are not yet completed. Here is "Babe" Press-
ley, one of the smartest men in modern hoopla, who checked
Gail Bishop to 13 points in the final tilt at Spokane on New
Year's Day. "Babe" is quite a favorite of the students out
here. Along with him this year are veterans Bernie Price
and Duke Cumberland.
Chiefs Undefeated
On Interior Tour
By LAURIE DYER
• VARSITY'S CHIEFS tucked three more scalps under
their belts during the holidays when they downed Pen-
ticton, Summerland and Kelowna to complete a perfect tour.
Either the boys got weaker or the competition got stronger
as time went on but somehow their margin of victory got
smaller each game.
Playing the Penticton Nalcos on
Dec. 29, the Chiefs walked all over
the local squad to the tune of 67-
33. Although the Varsity boys had
trouble with a very slippery floor,
they managed to pile up a 28-9
lead at the half way mark and
coasted the rest of the way. Fred
Bossons was deadly with his one
hand push shot coming through
with 24 points. He was followed
by Herb Capozzi with 20 and Bob
Haas with  12.
In Summerland, the Varsity
squad came up against another
team of Chiefs but Summer-
land bit the dust by a 49-31
score. Playing in the smallest
gym of the trip, the UBC team
lead 21-10 at the half but came
back strong In the second half
thanks to the work of Gerry
Stevenson who finished the
evening with 17 points. Bossons and Haas followed with 15
and 12 respectively.
In Kelowna, the team came up
against their stiffest competition.
Herb "King" Capozzi was the only one to hit his stride coming
through with 17 points, 11 of which
he got in the first quarter. The
game was played on New Year's
Day and it seemed that the boys
must have been suffering the effects of the night before as they
only won 30-24. However, credit
should be given to the Kelowna
Shamrocks, a Senior B team, who
put up a great fight against the
tired Varsity squad.
Dave Blair came out with a
sprained ankle in the Kelowna
game after contributing some
nice ball. Bill Fenn and Lome
Swanson who hadn't had too
much opportunity to play ln
the regular league games in the
city   showed   enough   fighting
ability on the floos to help the
team out a great deal.
After   the   trip,   Coach   Bruce
Yorke said that the trip had created  the  teamwork that  will  be
necessary to compete in the Inter
A finals this spring.
Cage Fans' Cheers
Break Trophy Case
• PERRY, la.-(UP)-Perry basketball fans become excited
recently.   Too excited, it seems.
During the Perry-Ogden game
the vibration from the cheers and
screams of excited fans broke the
plate glass window of the Perry
high school trophy case, valued at
$64.
Incidentally, Perry won, 24 to 23.
Why take life seriously? You'll

Beat Fort Wright 67-35
In New Year's Day Tilt
• THERE WERE war-whoops galore in Spokane New
Year's Day as the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds went on the warpath to hand Fort George Wright
a 67-35 trouncing and wind up in a second place tie with
Fort Lewis Warriors in the New Year's basketball frolic in
Spokane.
Harlem's Globe Trotters were the winners as they came
from behind in their final game against Fort Lewis to take a
47-42 victory in the dying minutes of an exciting tilt.
Although the Thunderbirds slumped under a horrible
defeat at the hands of Gail Bishop's Warriors in the first
round, 90-43, they finished off the Fort Wright hoopers in
better style than the Trotters did in the first round. Harlem
beat them, 45-23.

Homecoming game on Oct. 28, U
BC lost their most valuable scrum
man and finished a poor last in
the running for the Miller Cup.
Then   there   are   Johnny
Wheeler and Bob Lawson who
were out with sprained ankles.
Wheeler, the steady scrum half,
Is experienced and along with
Jack McKercher, provides the
steadying   Influence   for   the
squad.
Lawson adds some badly needed
weight to the 'Birds' scrum and
in spite of his extra poundage, is
very fast. He will vie for his position with Cam Layard) a holdover from last year's squad. Although Cam suffered a broken
ankle in the last McKecknie Cup
battle, It is expected that he will
be ready by the tune the next
game comes up.

Fink wandered onto a tennis
court and sat down.
"Whose game?" he asked.
A shy young thing looked up

Spokane's five thousand basketball fans really took to the Blue
and Gold outfit and cheered them
on to the well-earned victory. The
'Birds came through with some
of the neatest ball-handling and
play-making seen in the tournament as they won the feature tilt
from the Fort Wright soldiers.
FAIR RECORD
Starting off with plenty of hustle,
they piled up a 17-7 lead by the
quarter, then went on to a 30-11
count at half time. By the three-
quarter mark, the students had already beaten the Olobe Trotter win
with a 49-26 edge.
UBC kept up their terrific
pace right through to the final
bell for the decisive victory
which evened their trip record
at two wins and a pair of defeats,  which  stacks  up  well
against such outstanding competition.
....The   Thunderbirds   started   off
against the famed  Alpine Dairy
outfit in Seattle's Civic Auditorium
last Thursday but had plenty of
trouble with the Northwest champions. The eastern style club walked away with a 46-23 triumph.
BEAT ROCKETS
However, the Varsity squad came
back with an important win the
following night in Bremerton as
they whipped the Bremerton Navy
Yard Rockets to the tune of 45-35.
The Thunderbirds returned from
Spokane Tuesday and are ready
to continue their league schedule
against Lauries, UBC, and Higbies.
They are also prepared to take on
several visiting teams if time permits.
