Library Hours
Cut.- Closes
At Six Now
C. will be from 8:16 ajn.-6 p.m.
Monday to Friday; and 8:15-8 p.m.
on Saturdays, says Dr. Lamb. Last
year the llb-ry wa open to students In the evening.
The reason for the change in
hours, according to Dr Lamb, is
that whereas most of least year*
evening, visitors came by motor vehicle, the number using the library •
at nights this year would be relatively smaller. Most student*, Dr.
Lamb believes, would not wish to
oome by rail and bus at nights.
The number of evening devotees,
therefore, would not Justify keeping the library open at nights,
which means an extra light bill,
staff workv end expenass gsner-
ally. It may mean more good
books added to the library,
This arrangement of hours wili
be ^definitely adhered to, pending
further notice from Dr. Kaye
Lamb, librarian.

Summer Students
Donate Gift to AMS
• A GIFT of 25 dollars
was received by the A.
M.S. from the Summer Session Students Association as
a token of the summer student's appreciation for tiie
use of A.M.S. facilities during the summer.
One hundred dollars which had
been previously voted to tho A.M.
S. by this body, but which had
not been turned over due to a
misunderstanding, was also turned
over this year.
Since 1938 the summer etudes
have given 91,680 dollars to the A.
M.S. for this purpose, not as rent,
but merely aa a donation- on the
part of the S.S.S.A., which has
kept it up in spite of the reduced
enrollment in recent years.

with a more practical program planned that will call for more frequent use of the Armoury, this will become a daily feature, not Jutt a twice weekly event.
OTC Clamps Down
Oii Army Slackers
t EMPHASIZING that he would "not hesitate to report
any slackers of military age to selective service officials,"
Lt.-Col. O. M. Shrum, O.C. of U.B.C. contingent, C.O.T.C,
outlined in more detail the year's training program at a meeting of men held lwt Tuesday noon.
This sssstau't ptons sett far a     : ..   '  - v ,  • ,   '
<lra*tio redudlcn of lecture hours
and a correepondtag step-up In par-
ado hours. Th* week's total of six
hour f.% one thr*e*heur parade,
and one two-hour parade.    ,
Those men who do not attend
their three-hour parade on *Sa-
tuprday afternoons will attend on
Monday evenings from 6:18 to 0:15.
The remaining two hours for all
men may be taken at any one of
four times.
Monday-* IS to 8:18.
Tuesday-*: IS to 8:15.
Wednesday-S:43 to 8:48.
FTlday-4i«B to 0:49.
It la very probable that those
men attending their three-hour
parade Monday evening will take
their other two hours on Wednesday afternoon.
Tunes of these periods were
chosen by majority vote at the
meeting. There was, however, a
considerable agitation to have a
single, five-hour parade on Saturdays.
This year there will really" b*
no separate officer training group
with it* members writing common
and special papera. Instead, all
trainees will be divided into first-
year, second year, third year, etc.,
basic training.
This complies with instructions
from the Department of National
Defease to concentrate on practical work common to army, navy,
and air forces.
Col. Shrum indicated that advanced and qualified men are expected to put in their time a* instructors.
No quota for postings to O.T.C.
at Gordon Head have been set for
next spring Current Information,
however, Indicates that in May ah
men 19 years, 6 months, of age,
with good academic standing, having had two years basic training
and having shown qualities of
leadership, should have an excellent chance for acceptance aa
officer cadets.
The colonel pointed out that by
concentrating on practical work
and decreasing the absences from
parades the total number of weeks
spent in training should be lowered this year,
"We are making arrangements,"
he added, "to continue on a larger
scale the nirforce squadron Inaugurated last year for those men
planning to enlist In the R.C.A.
F. at the end of the scsasion."
To Instruct
e COLONEL G. M. Shrum
pointed out this week
that no man can expect to
neglect his military duties
duties and still gain credit
for his academio year.

Graduation Issue
To Replace Totem
• FOR the information of toe
Freshman class there will be na
issue of U.B..C.'s year book, the

metal the last Totem for the duration came out last year.
The place of the Totem will be
taken, to a leaser degree, by the
Graduation Issue of the Ubyssey,
to be edited by John Scott. Although no one knows at present
what form that paper will assume, It will be considerably
larger than in former years. Pictures of the graduation class will

in return will be permitted to drop
the (B' part of the Compulsory
War Work for Women. Bach girl
will spend one hour a week at her
Mary Mulvin, President of W.
U.S., wants twenty more co-eds
to volunteer, and asks for an all-
out support from the student
body. In case anybody doesn't
know about Self-Deiual days,
every Wednesday students are
asked to deny themselves something and contribute the money
that they save to the Red Cross.
The plan was started two years
ago, and last year the total of
1788.81 waa achieved. This year
a goal of |1,000 has been set.
O   FILM SOCIETY would like to

Council Changes
(See Editorial)
•PLANS TO HOLD the frosh reception In the Hotel Van-
couver were dropped by the Student Council when
members of a faculty .committee refused to grant their approval for a downtown function.
Originally the council had felt that due to war time
conditions a reception held at the Vancouver would hi more
satisfactory than the traditional affair held In the Brook Hall,
Although not desiring to set s
preoedent for future seetal function* the council had seed res*

function would he more la line

a reception, namely to Introduce

Brock Hall is not big enough to
handle the crowd that attends the
frosh. Using the gymnasium is
not satisfactory. A suggestion that
an afternoon dance be held did
not meet with approval
It waa also felt that due to the
transportation problem being badly confused at present, It
would be wise to use a more central place for the dance. Those
in charge of the reception went
ahead and made plans to hold the
affair downtown.
The oommittee'a representatives
celled on Dr. Klinck and reported
thst he expressed * feeling It would

position to attend toe affair as a
patron. The representative returned to counoil end explained

It was then moved that toe affair

Little Sisters Face Fearful

• FRESHETTES and their Big Sisters will assemble In the
Caf tonight at 6 p.m. for the annual Big and Little Sister
Supper. Newcomers who have disobeyed the initiation rules
by wearing makeup, speaking to freshmen, walking on the
grass, or committing any other minor crimes, will be dealt
with by the Women's Undergrad.

Among the forfeits by fresh-.
ettes at former suppers have been
the chewing of a full package of

o THE FROSH SQUAD showed a slight supremacy over
the Soph entry on Thursday noon when they took the
scheduled game 19-18 in the Gym. Sykes sparked the Freshmen on to victory, and the second year men had only Hayward to run up Uie big scores.
Much new talent for future Thunderbird teams was
on the floor, including the flashy Paddy Wescott, the confident
Ole Bakken, the long thin Matheson, and the two stars of
the game, Gbrdie Sykes, and Dave Hayward. But the play
was not of the type to show good players at their best, for
both teams were ragged in offense and defense.
The game opened with the Frosh
taking the Initiative, but the sophs
showed themselves to be more
canny, and they managed to keep
the kids well down. Hayward
starred for the sophs, and Matheson showed up well to back Hayward as much as possible. The
frosh had to rely on Sykes to
whisk In th* counters for them.
The defences of both teams were
tight, although the playing was too
ragged for a good test.
The second round went to the
soph* until half way through the
alloted seven minutes, when the
frosh took over again to pass to*
sophs and take a one point lead
with a 11-10 score. This session
featured again the two stars, Hayward and Sykes who took turn*
about plugging the hoop with unexpected Skill.
After the three minute breather,
the frosh began to show up better
than ever, and they managed to
put away five points to the two
mat the upperclassmen squeezed
in through the net. The third
quarter featured not the two stars,
but the antics and expert ball
handling of husky Paddy, Wescott,
who drew both cheers and Jeers
from the onlookers.
The last session with the ball
was the one that thrilled all who
saw it The frosh held their three
point lead until one minute before
full time, when the sophs turned
on the heat, and Dave Hayward
drove in two fast baskets to even
the score at 18-all. For a while
it looked like an overtime session
was due, but Paddy Wescott fouled Dave Hayward to give the sophs
the needed one point for an easy
win. But with second* to go Art
Stllwell droped in a two pointer
to give the frosh the victory over
the unavailing shouts of the timekeeper who maintained that the
game had been finished for 18
Much credit is due to the two
coaches of the competing teams,
Art Johnson for the sophs, and
Lynn Sully for the frosh. Th*
game was refereed by Harry
Franklin, and Maury Van Vliet,
with scores being kept by Louis
Checov, and the time by Bud
The two teams lined up in this
for the frosh: StilweU, Weecott,
Sykes, Bakken, Rippon, Robertson,
McKee, Stockstead, Ollmore, Mac
Farland, Hill, and Nelson.
for the sophs: Hayward, Matheson, Nellson, McGeer, Rush,
Oordon, Mottishaw, McKenzie, and

chance to cop the league championship this season.

These nobis specimens—not more

Intra Grid Hinted
• "I AM THE STUDENT'S representative and if they want
it (Canadian football), I will back it to the limit."
Thus efficient Lynn Sully, president of the M.A.A.,
went on record, promising new hope for hundreds of campus
Canadian football enthusiasts anxious to see an Intra-mural
grid circuit formed.
"As long as it would not inter- ■
fer with C.O.T.C. or classes, I can
see no reason why several teams
can't be formed. To my knowledge,
there is enough equipment to put
two teams on the field.
"We have a wonderful selection
of freshman material,"  continued
Sully, "the best, I think, in years.
They are husky kids who have already shown some promise In the
high school leagues, and with the
help of U.B.C. veterans, they could
put some excellent teams into
These words typify the Varsity
athletic policy. One of Sully's
principal aims is to get a more inclusive .student participation in all
"As far as I know," Sully went
on, "we will field rugger teams in
two cup competitions, the McKechnie Cup and the Miller Cup series."
The former is the classic series
composed ot Vancouver and Victoria All-stars with a Varsity entry,
the latter, in which Varsity hopes
to field two outfits is composed of
Meraloma, Ex-Byng, and Ex-Britannia entries.
Sully also confirmed the proposed entry of Senior 'A' and
Frosh teams in their respective
leagues, and added that the Soccer
eleven would continue to function
as usual, although whether they
will enter the Wednesday or the
Saturday league is still In dispute.

Off The Cuff
• THIS YEAR'S Intra-mural program will embody a good
majority of the athletically inclined men at the University, but does not do anything for the women who might
desire to participate in sport of some nature. Why not start
an Intra-mural program amongst the sororities and other
women's organizations on the campus with a plan much the
same as the successful system used by the men last year?
This program would not have to be so strenuous as
the men's but it could put a'few more sports in which girls
could take part on a competitive basis. With the new war
training plan for the co-eds, classes are being held in Archery,
golf, volleyball, and badminton, and the experience gained
here could be put to test in competition with other groups.
That competitions amongst the sororities can be run
off successfully was shown last spring when a bowling tournament was held at a downtown alley. If that spirit could be
transferred to other games, a successful Intra-mural program
for the women on the campus could be held this year.
It would not have to be limited to the sports met have
already been mentioned but could Include table tennis and
even a swimming event.
So the suggestion has been put forth for such a program on the campus, now how about a bit of enthusiasm
shown by the girls.
Another member of the Varsity Blue and Gold Thunderbird squad of last season showed up on the campus this
week In the person of "Hank" Mottishaw from Duncan. Hank
will not likely be playing this season because of the pressure
of studies, having entered Applied Science. He is also sporting a trick knee which he Injured at a logging camp this
Likeable Jocko Ryan, the steady little guard with the
hoopers last season is reported to be attending a dental college In Portland. Both Sandy Hey arid Al Dean ere over

he will have to build his Senior A squad, namely Harry
Franklin, Art Johnson,. Lynn Sully, Harry Kermode end
Art Barton.
