—Ubyssey Pholo by Tommy Hatcher
WASTING NO TIME in moving into their new home, UBC
physics students started classes in the still-unfinished physics
building Tueday, while workmen were still putting finishing
touches to the $750,000 structure. Official opening of the building, first permanent unit added to the campus in 20 years, will
come November 1 on Homecoming Day.
Soundproofing Muffles Many
Noises In New Physics Building
The first problem UBC physics students had to solve when
they moved into their still-unfinished building this week was:
"Why can't we hear the carpenters banging out in the hall?"
 —<$>    And the answer was to be found
in their own textbooks, for the class-

Students who tested out the air-
conditioned main classroom, holding
275 persons, gasped in amazement
at their "miniature theatre.'
The room is equipped with soundproof movie projector booth, tiered
seats and acoustics which carry the
professor's words to every corner
of the hall.
The main classroom, and two others
on the ground floor, are walled off
completely from the outside, and
depend on modern, artificial light
for illuminaton.
Faculty members have moved into
bare offices on the completed second
floor and labs on the upper storey
are now in almost daily use.
The building's basement still is
roped off while workmen complete
furnishings and hammers are at work
along the main floor as well.
Official opening of the structure
comes November 1 on UBC's Homecoming Day,
Five Students Victims
Of Local Bicycle Thieves
Bicycle thieves on the campus have victimized five University students in two weeks,
Tlie wave of thefts broke out September 23, the second
clay of lectures, when a student reported his bicycle missing
from the cycle shed near the power house.
Jokers Pile Junk In A M S Offices,
Protest Eviction From Campus Hut
"" There's many a Moyls in the news these days.
The person who phoned the pub office the other day did
want a Professor Moyls, Luke Moyls informed the Daily
Ubyssey, Wednesday.
Professor Moyls is a mathematics lecturer on the UBC
campus, and has recently returned from Harvard with a Ph.D.
He received his M.A. here; and won the Governor General's
medal upon graduation in 1940.
"He's my big brother," said Luke.
Since then, a second theft has been
reported from the shed, one from the
Science building, one from the Library and one from  Acadia Camp.
Only two of the missing' machines
have been recovered, Provincial police
on    Ihe    campus   reported.
Constable J. W. Dowling, head of
ill L'ni\ersily police detachment,
warned students Wednesday to keep
bicycles locked while on  the campus.
Robberies could be avoided, be advised, if bicycles were left locked in

Joker Army Hut Headquarters
Taken By Fish, Outdoor Clubs
Varsity's Jokers Club is out in the cold. But members of
the zany campus club are not joking about it.
Finding themselves ousted Wednesday noon from their
club rooms in favor of Fish and Game and Varsity Outdoor
clubs, the Jokers, armed with furniture, established a beachhead
in the offices of AMS President Grant Livingstone.
The excursion, the first of its kind
on a large scale since the war, offers
students and their friends all the
excitement and fun of travelling en
masse to witness the Thunderbirds in
action, plus the added advantage of

Council Approves
Jabez Memorial
"Jabez", retired campus columnist,
will have a memorial, if sentiments
expressed by members of the Student Council at a meeting last Monday night are shared by the student
The plan for a "memorial to laughter" in honour of the Ubyssey humourist received official approval from
Council members, who were asked
to give permission for a public subscription campaign to raise funds for
the proposed  tribute,
Les Bewley, who first raised the
suggestion in "The Children's Hour",
expressed himself as delighted by
Council support, and said the collection will get underway next Tuesday.
Collection cans will be placed at a
number of points on the campus, and
students will be invited to make their
contributions   at  that  time.
"But please remember that we are
asking for small contributions only"
Bewley said. "Nothing larger than
ten cents will be accepted, and nickles
are especially welcomed,"
"This is to be a memorial to laughter, and you can't ask a man to feel
amused if you ask him to part from
a quarter."
They moved  in a mass of moth
eaten old furniture in a demonstration
designed   to   show   the   harried   Mr.
Livingstone that the Jokers are not
"defunct" as some had believed.
Shoving their furniture into the
residents'e office, the organized
clowns of the campus opened their
meeting with a rousing song that
echoed throughout all of Brock Hall
and sent shudders down the spines
of the plagued office workers nearby
Their discussion of plans for remodelling the office along "more
suitable' lines, including the addition
of a bar and a modern ventilation
system was interrupted by the arrival
of Livingstone and AMS Treasurer
Bob Harwood.
Livingstone refused Joker demands
for space, stating that he must have
some proof of the strength of numbers of the allegedly defunct clowns.
Harwood attempted to quell the
Joker demands by asking for "concrete" suggestions as to how the
AMS Council is expected to house
all the clubs on the campus under
present   crowded   conditions.
Joker Al Beesley silenced the
money-minded Harwood with a quick
comeback. "De we have to take
over ALL the jobs on the campus,"
the asked.
Jokers showed little dismay at the
repeated refusals of the Council members present to "do something' about
the housing conditions.
Proof of numbers and support, Livingstone said, would be the only way

Nurses Help
Blood Drive
Varsity's Nurses Undergraduate Society will wear full uniform on the campus today to
publicize the present blood
donor campaign.
Up to Wednesday night 928
students had volunteered their
Support to the drive so far has been
relatively disappointing, Rosemary
Hodgins, president of the drive committee, told reporters yesterday. The
committee hopes that the number of
signees will show an increase by be
end of the week, in order to attain the
objective of 3000, she said.
Students who are willing to give
one pint of blood to the Red Cross
bank are asked to sign their names
to the lists on one of the various
tables around the campus. Each student is asked to arrange an appointment for a time best suited to his
individual •time table. '
Instead of the system used last
year, a mobile unit operated by the
Red Cress will visit the campus.
Complete up-to-date in every respect,
the unit is capable of handling 80
donors per hour.
Socialists Reluctant To
Assume Party Name
At least one "political" club on the campus will seek to
circumvent AMS orders requiring such organizations to adopt
the name of the party they embrace.
Members of the Student Socialist Forum voted almost
unanimously Wednesday to ask permission from Students
Council for approval of their name and charter as orginally
set out.

Wednesday to ask permission from

Student President Grant Livingstone told the meeting he had "always understood that the Forum was

"Since the Forum was founded
solely for the discussion of Socialism, it would destroy its purpose if
it were allied to any political party,"
member  Rod  Young  replied.

The tempest-in-a-teapot concerning caf
privileges hit a new high Monday night when
Grant Livingstone pronounced a ruling of
the chair denying representatives of the Daily
Ubyssey from reporting council discussion
of the problem
Livingstone's ruling brought a storm of
protest from the editorial board of the newspaper.
His reasons are obvious. He did not want
a re-occurance of the difficulties he experienced last week when the Ubyssey carried a
factual report on the original council action:
not to council's approval.
Although the Ubyssey does not wish to
take any editorial stand on the question of
caf tables, it does most certainly wish to keep
the student body informed on the disposition
of council on this, and on all other matters.
We cannot, however, fulfill this function
—the very foundation of the constitution of
the Ubyssey—if its reporters are to be barred
from covering the meetings of the campus
Actually, the Ubyssey represents your
only check on council. If the Ubyssey is barred, council is left free to do as it wishes.
This, in the name of the students, but without
the knowledge of the students,
We will be the first to concede that a certain degree of censorship is to the public
advantage, and mutual good. But we feel
that the Ubyssey can make its own decisions.
We do not wish and we do not intend to
become the tool of the student council.
Furthermore, Livingstone's action is entirely unconstitutional. Nowhere in the code
or constitution of the AMS is there any clause
or even inference that council meetings are
Attendance at the regular Monday night
meetings is open to all students. The formality
of requesting permission is normally observed but such permission cannot be refused.
Finally, we strongly believe that the
elected representatives of the student body—
elected to represent, mind you—should be
held responsible for what they say and for
what they believe. It is not sufficient that the
students be informed only of the motions
passed. They must be told the complete story.
We ask the student body to come to the
defence of the Daily Ubyssey. We ask that
they urge their representatives on the Undergraduate Societies Committee to make a recommendation that no such untoward action
be taken in the future,

"I give up," said Alice, "what DOES happen to the other $30,000?"
Alice looked down the long table to
where a bulky form in a red sweater was
dipping a slide rule into his cup of tea.
"That's just what I said," the scarlet form
retorted, "what DOES happen to the other
Alice was just going to say 'I don't know
either' when the Scienceman stopped stirring
his tea and began to wGrk the slide rule back
and forth with a speed that astonished Alice
"Don't interrupt!" the scarlet man barked.   Alice hadn't said a word.
"But I didn't say a thing," Alice protested.
"Copy cat," he jeered. "You were talking
but you didn't say a thing. Trying to copy the
precedent set by the Engineer spokesman at
the AMS meeting, eh?"
"But I wasn't trying to copy anybody,"
cried Alice, getting more perplexed by the
"Don't interrupt," the Engineer retorted
again. He was working the slide rule at a
terrifiic rate, dipping it every so often into
his tea. Around his place at the end of the
long table were tiny tea stains caused by
drops that had spattered off the slide rule
from the rapid motion of his calculations.
"Anyhow, I've almost found it," he continued.
Alice was just going to ask how he expected to find sugar in his tea when he hadn't
put any in, but she was afraid of being told
again not to interrupt.
"Would you like some sugar," Alice enquired politely.
"Would we ever!" he chortled. "About
five thousand worth." Alice wondered why
he would need five thousand dollars' worth
of sugar in one cup of tea, and with sugar
so scarce, too.
"Well, it's right in frnt of you," Alice
was trying to be helpful. "But there's not
five thousand dollars' worth in that little
bowl," she added.
The Scienceman was peering very closely
at his slide rule. "Of course not!" he snapped.
"It's right here somewhere. Now lemme see.
Five symphony concerts divided by five
tihousand Sciencemen. That's a thousand
Sciencemen per concert. That's great isn't it."
"I guess so," said Alice, hesitating, "but
I thought the Sciencemen didn't go to the
symphony concerts."
"Of course we don't!" he snapped back.
"That's why it's great. We can stay away in
thousands and still have Sciencemen left over
to go to the banquet,"
Alice was going to ask why the same
Sciencemen who stayed away from the symphony concerts couldn't go to the banquet.
"It would sort of save manpower, too," she
thought to herself.
"Yes, it would save manpower," the
Scienceman agreed with her.
"I didn't say anything," Alice said.
"Don't interrupt," he said. "Besides, we
gotta work out a schedule." He slipped the
slide rule back into his tea cup and was
dividing the little tea stains into groups with
his drafting pencil. "Now lemme see," he
mused. "I can't possibly stay away from all
five concerts."
"Why not." Alice asked.
"Too busy, stupid!" he said, "Far too
"But it doesn't take time to stay away
from concerts," Alice protested.
"Of course it does!" the Redshirt exploded. "If you stay away from the concert
you have to be somewhere else. And if you
have to be somewhere else, you can't possibly
go to the concert. And if you haven't got time
to go, how can you possibly find time to stay
Alice didn't know. "But why couldn't
you just stay away from two or three and
go to the rest?" she said.
"Riff raff!" said the Scienceman. "Did
you ever go to a symphony where they serve
beer, and everybody brings a bottle and gets
tight as hell?"
"No, and I wouldn't want to!" Alice was
annoyed at the grinning, vulgar monster in
the red sweater.
"Well, we do!" he chortled. "And iss
wunnerful. Precedent, I mean. Free banquets
for twenty-one years. Everybody gets tight
as hell." He winked slyly. "And all for free,
"I guess that's what happens if you get
too much sugar in your tea," thought Alice as
she got up from the table. "And listen to him
now. He must be hungry again. Or why else
would he be sitting there shouting for five
thousand clams?"

trouble in finding shelter.
At the University of Saskatoon,
similiar difficulties are being encountered by returning students. As
many as 250 married students were
reported at one time to be without

INCORPORATED   2??   MAY  1670 'Birds Seek
Initial Win
Still gunning for their initial American football victory, UBC's upcoming Thunderbirds move to Bellingham this Saturday for an exhibition set-to with Western Washington.
Proud of their showing against
CPS last weekend, but still regretting the way the game slipped through
their fingers, the 'Birds will be all
out for a win Saturday.
And if the old adage, practice makes
perfect, has any virtue in it then the
Kabatmen should be right in there.
With fundamentals now completely
mastered, Kabat has been concentrating on backfield timing this past
week and. results have been encouraging.
Western Washington will be no
pushover, however. The Vikings are
rated as the best in the WINCO
league and the WINCO loop is just
one step down from the Pacific Coast
Meanwhile, Mamooks have completed arrangements with Great Northern for a special UBC train to carry
rooters to Bellingham. The train
leaves Great Northern Station Saturday at 3 p.m., arriving in Bellingham
about 4:45.
Upwards of 500 UBC students are
expected to take advantage of the
special $2.45 return fare. Also included in the passenger list are cheer
leaders, drum majorettes, Arthur Del-
amonte's University band and the
Varsity pipe band.
Hoop Squads
Once again basketball has begun
its pre-season attempt to outshine
the brilliance of the UBC American
grid  machine.
Casaba mentor Bob Osborne has
already started regulating and dividing practice time among the varied
teams, and ex-Birds and ex-Chiefs
have been turning out regularly since
UBC opened.
From last year's starry aggregation,
Bob Haas, Harry Kermode, Pat McGeer, Johnny Forsyth, Jimmy McLean, and Nev Munroe have returned.
Lentham and Mitchell from the
1946 Chiefs will also be out with
Trev Shaw, Pete Walker, Suds Sou-
therland, Dougie Bell and Big Bill
Bell, as well as a host of other "name"
Some pretty fair hopefuls have been
seen on the maple courts in the last
few days. Standouts are Art Phillips and Rob Abercrombie from last
year's Dunbar Team.
Things don't look too good for the
Intermediate prospects this year.
Latest word from Vancouver has
it that the Varsity teams will not be
allowed to participate in the inter-city
league play. It is hoped however that
the Physical Education Department
will be able to organize a sort of
"house system" to allow men of intermediate age and ability to play
a  little  ball  in  their spare time.
"In this way we will be able to
watch for good players and prepare
for their advancement up to better
teams,"  says coach Osborne.
First (banco for the eager crowds
to see tbe Thunderbirds team in action will be on Homecoming Night
vhen they will meet the Grad's team
in   their  annual  tiff.
There will be a meeting of the
Women's Big Block Club, Friday at
12:30, in the Mildred Brock Room.
Important,  all  members   present.
OLYMPIC POSSIBILITY—With knees bent lanky Gar Robinson pivots smoothly as he speeds
down a slope at 50 miles an hour. Gar will be one of the big threats for the Varsity Ski Team
this year. Coach Peter Vajda promises good results from his squad in the big meets planned
for the coming winter.
Varsity Ski Squad Looks Invincible
Won't Lose Meet This Year - Bluechel
Skiing hits the big-time again this year according to an exclusive statement made to the
Daily Ubyssey yesterday by Al Bluechel, diminutive and volatile Secretary-Treasurer of the
newly-formed Varsity Ski Club.
Bleuchel is confident that his team
can't lose a meet this year. Last year
they lost only one, to the University
of Washington. However, after exams in the spring the UBC plank
stars spent six weeks at Garibald
Park training under Peter Vajda,
chief ski coach for Western Canada.
Next month a special instructor from
the States will train the* boys in
what proved last year to be their
weakest spot, jumping. At present
the team trains up Mount Bbker
every weekend and sandwiches four
P.T. periods a week between lectures.
Things will really get hot around
Christmas time when the boys prepare in earnest for the U.S. National
Intercollegiate Championship to be
held December 28 at Sun Valley,
Idaho. It was at this meet last year
that the UBC crew were nosed out
by only a few points by Washington.
This year with Washington deprived
of three of their key men, Bleuchel
is sure that the Varsity boys will
come home with the silverware.
UBC wil be the defending champs
at. the Canadian Intercollegiate ski
meet at Banff in February. Other
meets feature team work, but at
Banff the boys have a chance to
gain glory for their individual efforts.
Garvin Robinson, who holds the
Western Canadian downhill and
slalom championship, is a cinch to
cop honours there, Arnie Teasdale,
John Frazee, Doug Fraser, Don Anderson, Don Fernside, George Wood
and Gordie Cowie won't be far behind Gar, All but Fernside and
Wood were stalwarts of last year's
team, and have benefited by their
Don Fernside is a terrific asset,
for the boy shines in jumping. Last
year al the Northwest Pacific Intercollegiate Meet he won the jumping
In March the spotlight will shine
on Martin Pass, the home slopes
of University of Washington, formerly UBC's only competition. Once
again Bleuchel reminds us that U of
W are minus three of their stars, and
Varsity should hold the title of the
Northwest Intercollegiate Meet, too.
English Rugger practices for all
teams are being staged every afternoon on the upper field at 3:30. All
candidates for Varsity and UBC entries are urged to turn out to the
stadium immediately.
