Greek's Leadership
Fraternities are making a valuable contribution to the community by developing Christian leadership, John W. Vann, national president at Alpha Tau Omega fraternity told a luncheon
gathering at UBC Wednesday.* r
Currently touring the west coast,
Mr. Vann, a native of Atlanta, Georgia, said that misunderstanding
of fraternities by the public has
been largely because of poor public relations, which can be remedied by their going out in the community and doing worthwhile
He stated that fraternities are
based on Christian principles and
provide an opportunity for the development of Christian leadership.
The employment bureau whicli his

many serious accidents In the past,

by the active chapter and alumni

on permanent loan from the Na-

"In his heyday,'' Dr. Williams ex
plained, "he was a delicate specimen some 30 feet long. He was
herbivorous and semi-aquatic with
webbed feet and powerful hind
legs that could drive him to the
bottom of lakes for water plants.
"Sinus trouble must have been
a real hazard for tfiis species,"
says UBC's veteran collector, "the
top of his skull was a net work
ot air passages probably permitting him to browse under water
for long periods, of time."
Lambeosaurus was . discovered
in 1913 vat Steveville, Alberta,
where Charles H. Sternberg, founder of the internationally famous
family of dinosaur collectors, unearthed him in prehistoric quicksand in Alberta.
Dr. Williams has supported the
development of museums and collections since his arrival at UBC
in 1921. In his scientific travels
to Europe and Hong Kong he has
acqured valuable items for the
university, and has encouraged
others to send specimens to UBC.

Student Teachers
Elect Lambe Prexy
Student teachers voted themselves a new name as well as a new
slate of officers at this year's first
meeting held Wednesday.
Now known as the "University
Student Teacher's Society, the
group elected Bill Lambe as president.  Other officers  are:
Al Anderson, vice-president; Carol MacKinnon, secretary and Bill
Blake, treasurer.
Anderson, acting as coordinator
of activities, will also supervise
committees that have been appointed. Representing the student
teachers on the Undergraduate Societies Committee will be Stan
McLarty and Myles Beale.
To start off activities, the social
committee has planned a dance
for next Tuesday.
Student decision on the Ostrom Plan will have to wait
two more weeks.
Engineers made good their
Wednesday announcement to
table the athletic aid plan;
Engineering Undergraduate So-
cltj- president Don Duguid presented the motion before an estimated 4000 students, at the special
general AMS meeting in tbe Arm*
ory Thursday.
Motion to table was passed by no
large majority but AMS president
Nonie Donaldson ruled a count was
not needed and declared' the plan
tabled. -,-■■■.
Miss Donaldson served notice to
the student body immediately
afterward that the nest special
general meeting would be held on
November 14 at 12:30 p.m. In ths
Meeting went on smoothly after
Ostrom took the floor, but before
hand the crowd showed impatlsno*
to get the meeting under way bjr
a series of shoutings and stamp*
Ostrom read out his twelve rs*
commendations, then explained
why eaofa was Included In bis plan
and bow the recommendations
were drawn up.
STRAW VOTt      -
Mlaa Donaldson asked the stu*
dents at the completion of Ostrom's report if she could have a
straw vote on whether they were
prepared to vote either way on the
lssu at the meeting, or whether
they needed more time to think
out the points involved in the plan.
Straw vote made clear to Miss
Donaldson that the students were
ready to vote on Ostrom's aid
plan at the Thursday meeting.
Ostrom was compelled to move
his report be adopted as read before
discussion from the floor could begin. Dave MacFarlane seconded bis
Don Duguid, first man to take the
floor when discussion was opened,
outlined a series ot points which
were not clear to members of the
Engineering Undergraduate go-
"Ostrom's plan is not concrete,"
Duguid said, after he had outlined
what the EUS had considered as
flaws ln the plan.
"It is too loose and open to many
flaws," he said.
Duguid's request to table tne motion for at least a week or "until
such time that the students know
what the plan is about," was
seconded and the vote taken immediately, since there is no discussion on a motion to table.
A few cries from the crowd on
the immediate vote caused Miss
Donaldson to inform them of parliamentary procedure.
Ostrom announced after the plau
was tabled that he would like to
speak to any group or Individual
who has something to add or detract from the plan.

Everybody Won
From almost every point of view on the
campus, the results of yesterday's general
meeting- of the student body were the best
that could have occurred.
Student Councillors themselves, who
earlier gave Brock Ostrom's plan, their almost-wholehearted approval, now say that
they are* pleased that The Big De-
eteion is postponed until the average student has a chance to give it
a thorough turning over in his mind; Council's attitude in this regard is a laudable testimony to the fact that they neves had any
intention of railroading the motion. They, too,
'regpetted that the date set for the meeting
supposedly allowed only a scant 24 hours for
student perusal.
Opponents of the motion, too, are naturally glad that the decision was postponed,
for it appeared to be touch-and-go whether
they had a chance to defeat Ostrom's motion.
But the group most deserving the break
they got from the tabling of the motion was
what political experts like to call the "float-
Welcome Grads
Veterans of the first mass trek of university students should feel that they are
really coming home this weekend.
They will realize that the spirit they
first introduced to the city of Vancouver has
not been lost. A few short but progressive

years have passed since their long trek from
Fairview to the wilderness which has become
the UBC of today.
At times they may have lost sight of
student drive but it always sprang up once
more to prove that it had only been lying
The effect of the first burst of enthusiasm
which took the form of revolt was the site of
present university. Effects of later bursts are
evident all over the campus, in tiie stadium,

ing vote." Despite all the fervor, lor and
against the Ostrom plan, we are convinced
that a good many students have yet to make
up their minds about athletic aid. '
We are in accord with Council on this
point: Council believes that when students
have a chance to'look the plan over at some
comparative leisure, they will find it sound
in bverall principle. And we would not be
surprised to -find even a certain group of law
students helping them plug the legal loopholes
which many students now claim are evident
in the plan.
"He who hestiates is lost" is an old bromide that we can safely throw out the window
in this case.
Students have hesitated, in a sense, but
they haven't lost anything. Instead, they
gained the opportunity to give proper
thought to a tough and complex problem.
We firmly believe that whatever decision
the students choose to make on November 14
will be a wise one.

The old grads will come back to a modern and still-growing university. Every erected stone was laid with the help of student

For The Rich — In Talent
Scholarships Also Proposed
It is two weeks sinco we had the privilege
of seeing "Dido and Aeneas." I should say
that two weeks ago a few of us took the opportunity of accepting the privilege. Far too
few. Why?
That there was privilege involved there
can be no doubt. I am compelled to display
immoderate enthusiasm: "Dido and Aeneas"
was the richest theatrical experience I have
had so far at this university.
A happy chance has started the year off
with such excellence. The occurrence is fortunate for two reasons. First, it is now certain
that this university is quite capable of presenting work of the first quality in the early
autumn as well as in the spring. Any objection to a certain amount of pre-term rehearsal
is invalid. After all, do not football teams in
many universities prepare their murderous
enterprise during the summer? I do not wish
to draw contrasts and shall say, therefore,
nothing about football. But as far as theatre
and the arts in general are concerned, they
are unquestionably the logical outcome, the
final integration of at least the humanities'
side of university life and should be supported without stint.
There should be indeed (Oh I tremble to
mention it) scholarships provided for those
unfortunates in our society prevented from
attending university by the law of Mammon,
and yet possessed of a deep appreciation of
their cultural heritage. Perhaps, if this not
unresonable plan is carried out, a new spirit
will flood our beloved institution. Imagine
the football coach of the future giving his team
a last minute peptalk:
The quality of mercy is not strain'd,
It droppeth as the gentle rain from
heaven ....
Or picture the wounded halfback crying out
in anguish as the gore rushes in torVents
about him:
O! that this too too solid flesh would
Thaw and resolve itself into a dew ....
The second blessing comes in the nature
of a criterion. A criterion has been establish-
ed. Anything less stylistically immaculate
than this production is no longer permissible.
The Fall Plays must be at least as good, the
Spring Play better, and "The Alchemist" best
■ of all. As for the Musical Society: it has been
reborn. Purcell said that the function of music
was to exalt poetry. Mr. Reeves and his
associates have exalted the Musical Society.
Lei it stay exalted.
One line performance is better than a
thousand woud-be critics. "Dido and Aeneas"
has been a personal blessing. A standard has
been raised and I can lower mine. Pedantry
h short-lived. That is how it should be. Everywhere.

Return Of Grads
Homecoming weekend is here, and we'll see some of the
more enthusiastic aluitas turning out to see UBC again.
I guess I. should write a big sentimental blurb, but that's
too hard to do. (I can see it all now—the phrases "nostalgic",
"happy carefree days", and "golden youth" would figure prominently. Ugh.)
Homecoming plans are really
tremendous this year. Bonfires,
parades, p6p meets, and all—sounds
as if it will be a lot of fun. To
start things off the right way, a
Homecoming Tea dance will be
held on Friday in the lounge of
Brock Hall. This Is „WUS sponsored
and is the one and only tea dance
they will sponsor before Christmas. Why don't you go?
The game this year should
feature some razzle-dazzle from the
fans, even if the game Is something

To Demand Grant
Delegates from Delta Sterna Pi,
women's honorary sorority, will
appear before Student Council
Monday to demairtl reasons for
failure of council to grant them supplementary budget of $100.
The grant ls a regular one, passed without question in former
years, Felicity Pope, president of
the sorority said. This year, however, two attempts to get a bud-
' get have failed and no reasons
have been given for the rejection of
the request.
"The only comments we have
had from council are several defamatory remarks concerning Delta Sigma PI by Jqfon MoKinnon,"
Miss Pope said.
Miss Pope said the money is
used to buy pins for new members

Mock Trek Staged
By Greeks at Game
Greeks are needed by the Homecoming committee to take part in
the mock trek at half time of the
football   game   Saturday,
Those taking part are asked to
bring along old articles of clothing reminiscent of the 1920 era.
Participants in the trek will
meet ln the Field House after the
first quarter of the football game
where they will be arranged and
pepared for the march.
we won't talk about afterwards.
Entertainment will be terrific.
Majorettes are all ready with new
steps, and a Homecoming trek
with a 1922 theme will highlight
half time, UBC Band and the
Scottish pipers will be on hand to
help the spirit of the thing.
There Is only one thing I object
to about the Homecoming Dance;
It is being held in the Armory. Now,
no matter how well it's decorated,
the Armory is still the Armory.
And nothing is more unglamorous.
Yes I realize it ls less expensive
and lt does keep the function on
the campus. But how grim.
1 remember «the first time I saw
that place. I had rosy dreams about
UNIVERSITY—all students would
be gods and goddesses, etc. The
shock of seeing that Armory finished one dream fast, I also distinctly remember wearing a pair
of precious new suede shoes to the
dance. That was the end of them.
Girls, you might as well resign
yourselves to wearing old shoes,
'cause If you don't, they'll be ruined in five minutes.
And while I'm on the subject of

I say that I hope the Convocation
Ball will be held ln the Hotel Vancouver Ballroom by the time I graduate. It used to be held there. Why
not again? After all, the Grad
Dance should he the big dance of
the year. And If we have to dance
at the Armouries all.year, why not
have a really glamorous danee for
"Something new has been added"
for the pledges of sororities this
year. A formal dance, called "Pledges on Parade," and sponsored by
the Delta Phi Epsilon sorority, Is
being held ln the lounge of Brock
Hall (a decent place to have a
dance.) The presidents of the pledge groups will be presented with
bouquets ln their sorority colors.   '
The dance will be cabaret style,
and it features Dal Richards and
his orchestra. I think this ls a
wonderful Idea. It not only gives
everybody a chance to go to one
of those all-too-few formals, but
It's a good chance for the groups
to see each other again.

Statistics Against
UBC; Spirit High
Northern Idaho Boosts Four.
Complete Strings, 18 Letterrneri
Statistics don't stack up in favor of UBC's American football team, but their 1950 Homecoming game with the Northern
Idaho College of Education will probably be the most spirited
in campus history.
Idaho   coach   Paul   Wise,   with t-
eighteen returning letterman and
twelve brilliant freshman prospects, faced a bright football picture at the beginning of the season,
a Logger press release said.
Since their leaguo opener, potato-staters have compiled a 6-1
win-loss record, the former figure
entering ln the victory column.
During this period, they have piled
ui a total of 215 points against
only   90
crossing  their  own  goal
Doomed to be the losingeat team
on the university campus, the
Thunderbirds have nevertheless
maintained unequaled spirit. In
their laBt contest, at Linfield College, the visiting Birds were behind by a 46-0 count, but still managed to block a Wildcat kick for
extr*a points.
A complete shift in defensive
and offensive line structure has
been Imposed on the team since
this last encounter, and coaches
Orville BUrke and Jelly Anderson
hope that the change will cover
gap created when linemen Walt
Pumfrey and Al Byman were declared lnelllglble for play.
Formerly guards, Oil Steer and
Phil Nixon have been converted to
tackle positions, while Cece Tay
lor and Danny Lazosky have moved
to cover guard slots. John MacDonald will fill the hole at centre.
In spite of the fact that UBC
possesses backfield stars In Qoorge
Pull, Dave MacFarlane and Gordon
Flemons, the old story of lack
in depth remains.
Northern   Idaho,
hand,   will   field
strings Saturday.
on  the  other
four   complete
Heading the Logger roster are
fullback Harley Williams quarterback Chuck Trlggs, and tackle Don*
Rich. Williams has been rated as
one of the outstanding blocking
backs of the team, and along with
Trlggs, is a transfer from the University of Idaho.
Rich, only ln his freshman year
at the Logger school has been a
constant offensive, as well as defensive layer. He weighs in at a
mere 215 pounds.
As a whole, Idaho line averages
over 200 pounds, with substitutions
adding even more weight to aa already strong offensive squad.

Nothing is basically wrong with
UBC's offensive line and backfield,
except for the fact that the same
players are ordlnarly expected to
hold defensive positions aa well.
Northern Idaho College, by the
way, has a student enrolment of
600, Including 44 football players
UBC has an enrolment upwards of
6000 but only 27 football players.
