 The Ubyssey
VOL. XXXII
VANCOUVER, B. C, FRIDAY, DECEMBER 2, 1949
No. 30
Time For Some Change
(FIFTH EDITORIAL)
Criticism of the stand taken by the Ubyssey on the question
of financial assistance for athletes has come from numerous
Sources on the campus.
The Ubyssey wishes it made very clear at this point that
we are not advocating that the administers of such a fund range
far and wide in Canada, seeking a herd of out-sized Neanderthal
apes to uphold the honor and integrity of UBC. It is far from the
intentions of the Ubyssey to advocate anything of this nature.
Numerous Vancouver businessmen, to make an analogy,
have cried the recent exodus of Canada's best brains to thc
.United States. Whether we realize it or not, our best athletes
are heading south too, lured there by the promise of paid
fees, board, and a job that pays $75 for 50 hours work per week.
The Ubyssey is not advocating that such an extensive scheme
as this be put into action at this or any time.
The Ubyssey's intentions are, that the athletes chosen would
be Vancouver players who would otherwise leave Canada for
the U.S. These athletes would have their fees paid according to
the academic standing attained by them. Surely these athletes
who are willing to be pummelled and beaten for the old school
tie are deserving of some remuneration.
Ubyssey editors, with sore pants from sitting on the fence
for so long on the question, feel that the remuneration should
be in the form of concrete financial aid.
Without this system, the editors forsee no sign of improved
athletics on the campus, particularly in the football held.
So far in this series, the Ubyssey has been largely showing
where the weaknesses in the present athletic stup lie. This does
not necessarily mean that we haven't got a constructive plan
to put this system into operation.
But that's another story — a story which we will begin
after Christmas exams and holidays are over.

Graduation Gets
Call Over Work
And Then Failure
"The Gateway," University
of Alberta student newspaper,
isn't.
That is just about all there
is to it. Editor-in-chief. Don
Smith and Managing Editor,
Irene Bowerman both resigned
after producing nine weekly
editions of The Gateway. Reason, they said in a letter to
Alberta student president. Tcvie
Miller, was that they con id not
train enough staff to handle
the weekly four page paper.
In his letter to President Miller,
thc ex-editor said, "Tlie task of directing a campus newspaper has been
over-burdened this year solely be
cause there arc no students who are
versed in the technical aspects of
newspaper production. This ... is a
lack of foresight ... of the last four
or five years . . . and neglect of
training."

"Unless aid is forthcoming, publi-

I All former editors of the Gateway
I have been asked by student president
[■Miller to come to the aid of the Gateway. First to come to the publications
aid was the University of Alberta
Alumni Association who produced an
expensive, all picture regular paper.
LACK OF INTEREST
According to editor in chief Smith,
editors of the Gateway were letting
their studies suffer in order to publish the paper each week. In addition
to a shortage of news staff, the Gateway did not have any cooperation
when they asked for circulation staff,
continued Smith's statement.
"Under present conditions on the
paper (The Gateway)- it is impossible for me to do my work on the
paper and still have time to devote
to my courses," stated managing editor Irene Bowerman in a letter of
resignation   to  editor  in  chief  Smith,
RATHER GRADUATE
, Miss Bowerman blamed former editors I'or the lack of student interest
in working on the student newspaper,
"There are only two people on the
staff who had sufficient training to
be able lo put out a good paper and
the entire burden has rested on them,"
she said.
Miss Bowerman felt, that .--ho would
rather graduate than work on the
Gateway   and   not  graduate.

RIGHTS
Fight over granting broadcast rights
was touched off when two stations
got rights to broadcast the Blue Bomber-Hamilton Wildcat Junior Canadian Football final.
Don Cunliffe, president of the Radio
Society, told Councillors Monday night
that their constitution gave them the
right to grant broadcasting privileges.
REVENUE SOURCE
"Anything," said Cunliffe, "in the
public interest can be carried by
more than one radio station. But
competitive programs, lo be of any
effect, must have a source of revenue."
"No sponsor will buy a program
when he knows another station will
carry it," Cunliffe stated.
"Most important," said Dcrwin
Baird, downtown radio announcer,
"is having some contact at UBC to
arrange  for  broadcast  privileges."

Eagerness to Learn Art
Extensive Says Robinson
"I was impressed wherever I went, with the eagerness
to learn" said UBC Extension Artist Clifford Robin.son, recently
returned from a series of short art courses in centres throughout the province.
Mr. Robinson gave lectures and
demonstrations on theai'rc design to
drama groups in many cities. His
instructions in art, drawing and composition were welcomed in the various towns throughout B.C.
One of his most surprising discoveries was, that although people
streamed in from all districts for the
classes, there were no "lunatic
fringes''  amongst  them.
They displayed a genuine friendliness, sharing their equipment with
other people. Mr. Hobinson's opinion
was that on the average, very good
work   was   produced.

SUGGESTIONS
THE EDITOR,
THE UBYSSEY,
DEAR SIR:
few weeks have shown a marked improvement of the Ubyssey in this report.   Without   mentioning   the   out- i
come, we feel that the MAD question
About a month ago, lhe USC made ' was admirably handled, and only hope
several    recommendations    with    re-   we can look forward to similarly fae-
gard to the Ubyssey which we feel
now deserve some comment. We are
hopeful lhat theso will be remembered in the spirit in which they were
given, that is, as suggestions rather
than   criticisms.
1. With regard to restricting editorial
policy to the section of the paper
which is set aside for editorial matter; the Undergraduate Societies Committee has noted that since the recommendation wes conveyed to. you via
Mr. Cameron, while you have not
chosen to adopt the recommendations
it was set down, you have reduced the
amount of front-page space given over
to Editorial matter. If this was done
as a compromise, it is most acceptable
to the UE'C. If we are being too presumptuous in assuming that it was
done in consideration of our recommendation, then we compliment you
on your editorial good taste.
2. With regard to the Engineers getting as much good publicity as bad,
I think your work on the March of
Dimes was very much appreciated by
the Engineers.
3. With regard to our recommenda-
tual presentation of contentious issues
in  the future.
7. Only one suggestion remains, and
this is probably one you didn't hear
about, or rejected for some reasons
of your own; we suggest that a large
poster, bearing such words as:
"Got some news for us?
Here's how to present it best:
1. Come in between 11:.9,0
and 1:30 on the day before publication.
2. Have it typed out before
you   arrive   if  possible.
3. See the editor for the day.
4. If he's not there, drop
your news in the box which
you will find etc. etc."
will drastically reduce the number
of news .mix-ups that occur. If you
wish, we'll make up a poster if you
will type out the appropriate text and
hang the poster up in some visible
position in the Pub. After it's made.
Lastly, we should like to thank you
for your most encouraging editorial
"USC comes into its own," and for the
cooperation and support we have received   from   you   individually.   Our
ippreciation is extended to Jim Ban-
tion   that   no   feature   item   be   pre- , hanl   Art Webh nnd eSpeciaiiy Hugh

guest artists, we have since found
that the artist referred to in our
discussion of tha matter was not un- '<

for what was a most regrettable suggestion   under   the   circumstances.
THE UBYSSEY
DEAR SIR;
It is with  pleasure that  the mem
bers of the Newman Club support the
programme  for   the   improvement   of,
the calibre of athletics on our campus.
5. We have  noticed  that  in  recent   However, we find it much to our dis-!
weeks the Ubyssey has tended to be-   gust  on tho  part of tfie  Ubyssey   to i
come more accurate and less spectac-   imply that St. Martin's College  falls .

taking to make it so. It   may   not   bc   an   outstanding   con-
6. With  regard  to writing unbiased   glomeration of buildings but this in no
news   articles,   we   believe   tho   last way   diminishes   the   quality   of   the
scholastic   achievements   cf   the   college, j
For  your   information,  Mr.   Editor,
we might point out that St. Martin's
College contains  an  excellent  facul- j
ty  which  is performing the task allotted  to   it.
The purpose of a university or college, as you well  know,  is to bring
cut   the   best   morally,   intellectually
and physically in the individual, not
the mere attainment of so many credits  for  a   degree.  St.   Martin's,  from
a   physical   aspect,   is   certainly   not
"jerkwater," nor do we believe it in- i
tellectually   to  fall   under   the  same
vague   generalization.   After   all,   the '
teaching staff of St. Martin's, who are i
Benedictine Monks, are not noted for
their   deficiency   in   scholarship,   nor
have they been so from the founding
of their order in the fifth century.
In conclusion, may we ask that all
who are unfamiliar with St. Martin's,
visit it and thereby taste of its "jerk-
waterness."  Again may we state our
support of a programme for an  improvement   in   the  athletic   status   of
UBC teams but we certainly disapprove
of such disparaging remarks without
adequate qualification.
Yours  Sincerely,
Paul Kitos,
President, Newman Club.
THANKS!

A Year of Prosperity
The year 1949 has been a monumental
one in many ways for UBC students,
Every organization on the campus has
felt the icy hand of austerity for the past
year and yet it has not curtailed the cultural
or athletic activity of any one group. Students have borne up well under the load of
debt passed on by other years.
Even more significant lias been the contribution that Student Council of the past
year has made to the university. Seldom has
UBC been privileged to have more astute and
well-guided administration than in the past
12 months.
Not only has the debt been eliminated
this year, but a start has been made on lhe
War Memorial Gymnasium, the cause of the
debt. Soon UBC's memorial to B. C.'s war
dead will be a reality on University Boulevard.
One of the greatest contributions students have made to world unity was okaying
a $1 fee raise to provide foreign students
with scholarships to UBC. No one will deny
that this was a concrete step in the cementing
of Canadian-European relations.
The editors of the Ubyssey take this
opportunity, its last in 1949, to extend to
students, administration and even Walt Ewing
a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New
Year.
Of Exams And Finances
Many students are about to find themselves in financial difficulties owing to the
lateness of Christmas exams. Exams, this
year, do not end until December 20—only
four days before Christmas.       ■   *    w   .
f' Christmas employment is largely concentrated in the pre-Christmas period. Employers
are reluctant to hire students for four days.
The post-office, for instance, insists that students seeking employment be able to report
for work Monday, December 19—a requirement impossible for a large portion of students who are forced to write exams on the
20th.
The administration feels that the univer
sity year is already too short and therefore
could not be shortened to allow students a
longer Christmas vacation. In past years,
however, it has been found possible to end
the session in time to allow student a full
week of work.
There are undoubtedly circumstances
which led the administration to extend the
period this year—but the reasons are of little
help to students forced to pay fees on January 1.
Perhaps the administration could permit
students in financial difficulties to delay fee
payment until February 1, thereby giving
them a chance to raise the money.

Our Quandary How to Ignore Chiistmas Exams,-
New Courses Show Us How To Go About It
We're having a little trouble these
days getting down to the business
of studying for exams. And we've
come to the conclusion that our
courses are alright in themselves,
but we just haven't had the right
prerequisites for them.
Here are a few courses we think
ought to be included in next year's
calendar, to make studying easier
for all of us:
*        #        #
Library Study 100—A course to
train the beginner to take in—in one
sweeping glance—what it normally
takes the untrained eye four hours
to survey. Special reference will be
made throughout the year to the
low-cut blouse, the traditional vol-
uptous sweater, and the exposed
female knee. Students will be instructed in how to ignore theii- text
books rapidly, in order that a greater number of textbooks may be
ignored more thoroughly by those
who find their courses too heavy
under the present system of studying in the Library.
Three hours of lectures (in the
Library reading room), and one
laboratory (in the stacks) per week.
T* ^f* •TT
Caf Crowding 200—This is essentially a survey course dealing with
the customs and methods involved
in using the cafeteria as a refuge
from the rest of the University.
Common procedure, right from the
time the student enters the cafeteria
just to borrow some notes until the
time he decides to stay for supper,
will be thoroughly analyzed. Special
stress will be put on the use of
spare  time,   including  those   spare
hours during which he is supposed
to be attending lectures.
ff.        %•        %•
Brock Lounge 302—Intended to
fill the needs of students who find
themselves unable to stifle their
consciences during skipped lectures.
Emphasis will be placed on the necessity for reforming students who allow 1:30 lectures to interfere with
their playing that rubber. Textbook:
Goren and Culbertson: How to Skip
Lectures and Win.
*        #        #
Essay Writing 200—This course is
intended for those who are unfamiliar with the steps involved in essay-
writing, including paraphrasing textbooks and magazine articles. Stress
will be placed from time to time
on the social aspects of establishing
contact with senior students who
possess  collections  of passable  es
says which they acquired from old
alumni who attended the University
in  the   days  when  students   wrote
their own original essays.
* # *
Nature Study 101—Designed chiefly as a field course to acquaint the
beginner with the countless ways in
which he may employ his time profitably and enjoyably by viewing Nature from various secluded spots on
University Beach. Students are required to equip themselves with
their own bottle-openers and pay an
additional fee of five dollars to cover
breakage.     Prerequisite:     Drunken
Parties 200.
,y. * #
Psychology 80!)—A study of the
beliefs, attitudes and motives of
those who read dull columns in Tlie
Ubyssey when they should be studying for examinations. Friday,    December    2,    1949

in feminine hair styles.

following results:

many girls can look neat with short
hair,
—not too short, but shorter than the

From a woman's point of view, the
opinion varies considerably. Some
think that short hair is much easier
to keep, especially at University
where    there    isn't    time    i'o    worry

VUU h Volition
Egos may rise to infinite heights
for the well-dressed woman, but
a voguish clothes hanger will not,
we fear, find enough confidence
from an over-stuffed wardrobe to
sail through the exams. A well-
padded book and smart neat accessories of notes are of more advantage at such a time.
The followers of fashion magazines are sadly neglecting these
Bibles of fnddishness for the duller
but more advantageous volumes of
Milton and such. However a happier note will be reached on the
20th and feminine minds will again
turn to thc lines of Dame Fashion.
Christinas costumes are dear to
the minds of women. It is a time
when a woman can wear the extremes and really get away with it.
Suits are all very well and definitely handy, but cocktail dresses
and formats are now in their element.
Rumor lias it the plunging neckline has had its day. The census
of opinion here in the Pub runs
along rather diverging lines. Two
are against them, one saying that
a girl really needs a tan if she's
going to expose herself, and the
other says that they're fine if you
have low blood pressure. On the
pro side are those who "think
they're very interesting."
The reasons for this statement
are also very interesting. Some
think th.it tlie plunge is n .sym-
etrical t.\pe of design. The only
thing tha! spoils it, according to
an authority, is tho name it's

Holidays Too Short
LONDON, ONT.,-(CUP)-I!ecemb-
ber 1st—Western U. students are displeased at the shortness of the forthcoming Christmas holidays which will
only be of eleven days dura won compared to fifteen days last year.
1 Most opposition to the shorter layoff from studies comes from student"
whose homes are elsewhere than
London   or  Ontario   in   general.
Students as a whole appear to want
a shorter summer recess rather than
a token holiday at the main festive
season.
Cne Saskatchewan freshman is
brooding over the fact that out of the
eleven days he will only be able to
spend five days at home having to
waste six days on board train travelling to and from his home.
Another factor which governs the
change is the days on which both
Christmas and New Years' fall. Students, however, will have to grin and
bear it because they will definitely
only  have eleven  days at Christmas.
Many Coeds Thumb;
Luckier Than Boys
TORONTO—(CUP)—Are girls successful as hitch-hikers? This question
arose some time ago, so we decided
to ask some of the coeds and a few of
the boys, their opinions on girl hitchhikers.
The coeds are enthusiastic about this ;
business and go at it with vim, vigour;
and   vitality.   Many,   including   a   lot
(
of Fizz  Ecldcrs,  come  to school  that'
way   in   the   morning,   while   many j
others    hitch-hiked    around   Canada
and Europe during the past summer. '
Thc boys admitted  that,  given   the i
choice  of  picking  up  a  male or  female  passenger,   they   would   invariably pick  Ihe gals, so you coeds are ■
all tet.  Some morning, when  a  pair,
of   you   are   running   late   for   that'
nine o'clock class, try thumbing a ride.'
If you  have  as  much success  as  we
understand you are supposed to have,
wo are willing to bet that you'll soon '
become an old hand at it.

In This Corner        by jim banham
Like an over stuffed chesterfield, "Black
Magic," currently playing in Vancouver, is a
monumental cinematic triumph of sheer quantity over quality.
With his eyes rolling like steel balls
in a pin ball machine, Orson Welles as the
famed 18th Century Charlatan Cagliastro
(real, name: Joseph" Bersalmo) moves through
the lush court of the decadent Louis XVI
and Marie Antoinette. With Marie by his
side, Welles finishes off the picture with a
grunting duel on a tower high atop the palace.
This aborted" story, taken from the novel
Memoirs of a Physician by Alexander Dumas,
wa.s filmed entirely in Italy at a tremendous
cost. It you -like spectacle and sheer weight
of set and costume, don't miss this one.
As usual, Hollywood takes the book and
twists it to its own ends. Cagliastro was actually a medical quack, who roamed through
Europe selling fake medicines, including the
elixir of life. He ended up in a prison after-
implication in the famed diamond necklace
affair during the reign of Mare Antoinette.
In this picture Cagliastro is chiefly a
hynotist who, with a wave of the hand, manages to spellbind half of Europe. The producers even manage to work Mesmer, the
original hypnotist, into the script. In tho
end, he helps to break the story up.
No actress, but very pretty to look at,
is Nancy Guild, who takes the part of an
Austrian girl implicated in the overthrow of
the French throne. It seems she is an exact
double  for  the  queen   and   the  conspirators
plan to use her for their own ends. Akim
Tamiroff, as Cagliastro's assistant, obviously
relishes his character role.

motion, picture doesn't seem to have benefited his standing as an actor. Aside from
ihe fact that you'll find out what Sam Spade
really look? like, "Illegal Entry," Duff's
second semi-documentary film, is hardly worth
the price of admission.
With the aid of Marta Toren and George
Brent, Duff manages to bust it wide open.
Most improbable bit of the film involves a
fight between Duff and a gunman at a
Mexican Landing strip. After being pummelled in the face and having his head smashed
against thc landing strip Duff walks nonchalantly back to the aircraft, after knocking
out the gunman, without a scratch on him.

Since This Corner won't be back until
after Christmas, it might be wise now to
nominate the pictures which seem likely to
get Academy awards in 1949.
Two pictures stand out as likely winners.
"Snake Pit," which starred Olivia De Havil-
land rates high on the list and seems likely
to cop honors for its realism. Some scenes,
notably those in a mental institution pack
about as much punch as it's possible to get.
Another show that This Corner enjoyed
was Red River, which introduced Montgomery Clift to move audiences, This picture
manages to instil iho feeling of wide open
spaces into the audience as no other has.

In place of the old wooden tub, wash-board and wringer the modern washing machine and the commercial laundry have come to the assistance of the housewife of today. "Monel," an alloy composed of
% Nickel and ]4 Copper, is today in general use for washing machine tubs, and for washers and other
equipment in modern laundries. Being rust-proof and corrosion resistant, it eliminates trouble from
stains and verdigris. Its hard, glass-smooth surface removes all danger of injury even to the most
delicate fabrics.  Because it is strong and tough as steel, "Monel" equipment is unusually durable.
Canadian Nickel sold Abroad brings in US. Dollars
Since more than ninety per cent of the
Nickel produced in Canada is sold to the
United States and other countries, it brings
a constant flow of dollars back to Canada.
In fact, Canada's Nickel industry is one of
our chief sources of U.S. dollars so essential
at the present time to maintain our foreign
trade and make available products not
produced in this country.
These dollars help pay the wages of the
14,000 Nickel employees, and help provide
the dollars which make it possible to pay
millions in freight to Canadian railways, to
buy timber, steel, coal, machinery and supplies amounting to many millions each year.
These millions, flowing mto all industries
through the length and breadth of Canada,
help create jobs for Canadians.

"Most successful Intramural

'Mural Director Dick Penn,
now that the first half of the
'mural program is complete.
With 2500 participants already competing and double that figure expected by the end of the year Penn
has a right to be proud of intramural
progress this season.
Forty groups in all have taken part
so far. Among these forty are twenty-
three independent or faculty teams
and seventeen fraternities.
Variety as well as success has been
the feature of the fall schedule with
golf, table tenni3, volleyball, and
cross counlry race already run off.
Tug-o-war and soccer contests will
continue after the Christmas holidays.

Third Phi Delt 125
Fourth Fort Camp 115
Fifth Betas  115
Sixth Forestry 107
Seventh Termites 105
Eighth Eng. II 102
After Christmas even more activities
are slated for competition. Basketball,
skiing, swimming, tennis, badminton,
softball, track and field, boxing and
wrestling, will all come in for their
share of attention as well as tug-o-war
and soccer.

By GIL GRAY
"Five straight" is the aim of
the UBC Thunderbird hoop
team when they tangle with
the University of Washington
Huskies this Saturday night at
tJBC. -Hill.
And judging from the last two
workouts of the 'Birds, they are
pressing pretty hard to make that aim
a reality.
Both first string forwards, Bell and
Munro were going all out for those
rebounds, both offensively and defensively.
In fact the whole team was working
like clock-work. Many of the rough
edges that appeared last week have
been smoothed out a-rl (h" 'Bird timing will be much improved.
TACTICS UNDISCLOSED
Of course tlie 'Birds have little to
go on as far as information of the
Huskies  tactics   is  concerned.
However, the whole 'Bird team will
probably be out in force at Exhibition
Gardens to see the Huskie-Leaf game
tonight in order to analyze the offense
of  the  visitors.
'Birds chances look very good, that
is relatively speaking. Chances are
relative to the amount of spontaneous drive' the 'Birds can muster within the first five or ten minutes of
play. Any team can go hard at the
end  of  the game.
But a good team goes hard all the
way through the game.
FORWARDS NEED STOPPING
And the Birds hftve to do just that
in order to stop the tall forwards that
the Huskies will bring up. Men like
LaDon Henson, captain-elect of the
Huskies, and slated for first string
forward for the visitors was third
high scorer for the Washington team
last year,
Henson and center Enochs with fellow forward Russ Parthemer will give
the 'Birds lots of competition for rebounds.
And despite what armchair critics
have to say, if a team can shoot at
all, the winner controls the backboards.

how little it costs
to buy protection
at YOUR age?
Everybody knows that life
insurance rates are affected by
the age of the person to be
insured .., the earlier you insure
the lower the premiums. But have
you found out just how small
the annual premium would be
in ydur own case?
There is another very important
reason why it is in your own
interests to take out insurance
while young. Good health is
essential before you can be insured
... and you may become
uninsurable in later years.
The proper type of policy for you
can best be determined in
consultation with an insurance
expert. Why not call the
Mutual Life of Canada representative? He has been trained in
adapting life insurance to each
person's particular needs. Ask him
to explain the many advantages of
