GREEKS FALL DOWN ON
PICTURES  FOR TOTEM
Only eleven undergraduate Greeks have had their
pictures taken for insertion in the Totem, Publications
Board annual, according to editor Hugh Cameron.
Pictures are being taken in Publications Board studios
in Hut A7, behind Brock Hall.
Photographers told the Ubyssey that undergrads will
not have to wait more than 10 minutes to be snapped.
Unless there is response to his appeal, Cameron said,
production of the book will be seriously handicapped.

Straith, Hamber .
Participate In '
Official Opening
The doors of a much-needed
building will open officially to
UBC students on October 25
at 4 p.m. when minister of
education, The Honorable W.
T. Straith presents the keys of
the Biological Science Building
to Chancellor Eric \V. Hamber.
The ceremony will take place on
the steps of the $9,'!G,000 building
with Dr. N. A. M. MacKenzie presiding. The structure is framed in
reinforced concrete with the entrance and surrounding area finished in 1J.C. granite veneer.
WING   PRINCIPLE
-Architects Sharp, Thompson,
Berwick and Pratt employed the
principle of wings to give a complete separation of departments.
At present three wings converge
on a main lecture theatre seating
200 students. Smaller lecture rooms
nnd common rooms are also located
in this centre area.
Although this new addition to
UBC's building plan will do much
to relieve tho pressure of overcrowded classrooms and laboratories it will not accommodate all of
the classes and lectures in the biological sciences as had been originally intended. Plans called for a
four wing structure, three stories
high, but soaring labor and material costs have made it necessary to
eliminate one wing and ono floor.
Most of the classrooms and laboratories feature built-in storage
■ and specimen closets. Staff members occupy offices that are also
equipped for experimentation. Dc-
chlorinating and filtering equipment supply water.to a specially-
constructed fish, hatchery on the
ground floor. '" ,
IN  USE NOW :
The building Is ready for full
occupancy and hat in fact been in
use since the beginning of the fall
term. One hundred and eighty-eight
pharmacy students occupy one
wing, .working in gleaming new
labs. The* other two wings are
occupied by fisheries, physiology
and zoology.
Valuable botanical and zoological collections have been removed
from inflammable buildings on the
campus to safe sanctuary in the
fire proof rooms of the Biological
Science   Building.
Nearly 400 men and women will receive degrees from UBC
Chancellor Eric W. Hamber at the 24th annual congregation
Wednesday at 2:30 p.m. in the Armory.
The congregation address will*-
be delivered by George Sherman
Avery Jr., director of the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens and a leading authority on plant hormones.
He will also receive an honorary
doctor of science degree.
SECOND DEGREE
A second degree will be awarded
to Professor J. R. Dymon, head of
the department of Zoology at the
University of Toronto and past director of the Royal Ontario Museum.
The congregation, which is open
to the public, wiil also mark the
official openjng of UBC's Biological Science building, constructed
at# a cost of $930,000. The building
will be officially opened following
congregation ceremonies by the
Honorable T. W. Straith, provincial government minister of education.
MEETING ON STEPS
President of UBC. Dr. N. A. M.
MacKenzie will chair the meeting
on th® steps of the new structure
at the corner of the main mall and
University Boulevard.
Mr. Straith will hand the keys
to Chanrellor E. Hamber in a
simple ceremony, to officially mark
thc building open.
'Tween Classes
"There  will  bo  no  increase  in
Ifees mentioned in connection with
j th is proposed  athletic   loan,"  Ostium   stated    in   renouncing   the
1 tumour.
"And in addition," Ostrom said,
"no further money will be a'iked
from the present, budget of,AMS
treasurer John  MacKinnon."
Ostrom hinted that the proposed plan will dwell on two deferent
basic aspects.
Be said that tho plan must
ucces.surily cover ways to help
athletes who aro participating on
Intercollegiate level, and a remedy
in ' the organizational structure
which he believes to be partly at
fault.
Questions  on   the  possibility   of
un academically low grade of a Miletus playing on U1SO teams under !
any  new  athletic   plan   were   an-
nwered emphatically by Ostrom.     )

pollination and to prevent fruit
from dropping before ripening has
taken place.
Prof. Dymond, a past director of
the Royal Ctitario Museum, became
a member of the Toronto zoology
staff in 1920 and became head of
the department in 1948.
MAJOR   ROLE
Dr. Dymond's particular interest

The Movie Scene
Mi
nee
UBC students can ill afford to be too
smug about the freedoms they believe to be
traditional on the campus.
*■ Their attitudes toward. American war
hysteria range from jeering mockery to serious concern, but nearly everyone seems to
. feeMhat "It can't happen here."
The regrettable truth is that it IS hap-
pening here.
Freedom of expression first began to slip
away from us during the infamous Gordon
Martinxase two years ago. After Martin, who
Was known to haye been active in communist circles, was denied the right to practice
law in British Columbia, fewert students con*
tinued to associate themselves with the LLP
club. here.
At that time, Martin's defenders yrere
victimized by thieves who stole petitions that
•w,ere4to be presented to the legal authorities.
Another theft, reported just recently,
points up ,a continuation of this trpnd. This
time, the Student.Peace Movement lost posters advertising the Stockholm Appeal.
These thefts in themselves are not near-
Issue of the Day
The fifth anniversary of fU.N. rolls
around today. It is worthwhile not only to sit
back and think of the troubles and bungl*»s of
U.N. but also *to look back toward the fifth
anniversary of the old League of Nations
a scant 25 years ago.
Granted U.N. has a long way to go. ;But
in many spheres much has been done and,
most of important of all, the nations of the
world are still sitting down around a table lo
hash out their differences, and they're not
pulling any punches. Tho principal difference between today's U.N. and yesterday's
League is the degree of frankness which
characterises discussions.
If U.N. has done nothing else it has, at
ly so serious as the situation of which they
are indicative.
Gradually, the student body is beginning
to feel itself benevolent whenever it grants
. communists and other leftists the opportunity
to be heard. Too .often now we take the
attitude that "we are being nice to you Reds
because we are members of a tolerant
nation."
In reality, we have no more right to feel
that we are "being nice" to Beds by allowing
them free,expression and assembly, .than we
have,to consider ourselves "nice" for following continuation of the Progressive-Conservative club, of the Newman club or the UBC
Chess club.
Communists hero should not be expected
tn "appreciate" their freedom. TTiey are entitled to expect freedom, as a "eight, just as
the rest of us do.
Those among us who adopt ,a patronizing
air of self-conscious (tolerance are unwittingly
giving tho communists far more attention
than they deserve.
least, taken a substantial chunk of moulding
diplomacy out from under the table where
all may see it.
At UBC our U.N. Club has led the nation
in campus U.N. groups. What ,is more important, UBC U.N. Club has been the spark
plug for city-wide U.N. activities.
Their U.N. "week, opening today, promises a varied, informative and entertaining
program—and a chance to sit back for awhile
nnd think about the issues of tho day.
A solid turnout here will have repercussions in U.N. spirit throughout the city. Let's
make sure that campus lethargy doesn't destroy this effort too.
The Bird Cage
The engineers are a very versatile group.
They build bridges, let blood and play basketball. Why not carry this jack-of-all-trade
tendency ono step further and have an engineer's opera?
EUS presents Dido and Aeneas:
The scene opens on Dido, the Que,en of
Carthage, who is studying engineering at
UBC as a D.P.
The narrator is singing a eulogy to Don
Duguid, who is passing among the aladienc.e
with his hat mumbling something about student participation. In the background the
Chorus is chanting "We are, we are, etc." and
working themselves into quite a lather.
Dido is distraught and suffering from a
vague feeling of uncertainty. Nontholess she
manages to hide her doubts and fears by turning her back on the audience. A tinge of
comic relief is injected by two Jesters in red
sweaters who are hooting epithets and hurling cream pies at one another. The Jesters
have obviously caught the eye of the chorus
who are rolling around in ecstasies of mirth.
A tinkling of glass is heard from th? chorus,
and a Spirit enters. Dido apparently Feels
Its Presence and begins to twitch.
The scene ends in an unexpected climax,
as the chorus, babbling widly, leap from the
pit, hoist Dido onto their shoulders, and rush
her off the stage, inadvertantly bowling over
the Second Servant, who is looking for tho
Third Servant.
The scene now shifts to a chamber in
Aeneas'.s palace. The narrator tolls us that
Aeneas is a fine chap, a real Trojnn and a
hell of an engineer. At the moment he is flat
on his back, noisily sucking his teeth while
two attendants try to find an itch on his
stomach. They foil, nnd are thrown to the
Ever .since Hollywood producers
learned that Negro "problem" pictures pay off at the box-office, they
have been grinding them out with
Increasing .regularity. The results have ranged from the ama-
tourtsh ibut effective LOST TIOUN-
DORIES to the sensitive and moving PINKY. NO WAY OUT, the
latest entry in the field, Is at once
the moBt. ambitious and least successful pf the lot.
It concerns tho accidental death
of a . small-time crook whose demise Is mistakenly attributed to a
Negro doctor. This Is used by the
town's ihoodlum element as .an 'excuse for a race riot, white the
dead man's-brother, a fanatical
Negro-hater, attempts unsuccess'
fully to murder the doctor.
The film falls notably tp present a.dramatically effective structure of Incidents In the working
cut of this plot. Unnecessarily long
as a who!e, it* spends tbe first
half hour In an overly,detailed and
excessively .wordy .exposition, then
proceeds to an unsatisfying climnx
—unsatisfactory because melodrama Is used tp excite our senses
rather than tbe more profound
treatment which the topic demands.
At no time are the emotions expressed of the intensity required
for the film's "message" to get
across to the audience.
The fault probably lies in the
choice of Manklewics as director.
Previously his greatest successes
have been ln the realm of fast-
paced, brilliantly written films like
A LETTER TO THREE WIVES.
His concern has always been with
the attainment of a form of "artless" realism that is effective for
certain subjects, but also severely
limited.
In NO WAY OUT, he seems to
have tried to create a studio-made
documentary ln this tradition. Unfortunately, thc results are little
more than a contusion of effects,
often brilliant, but lacking in cumulative Impact.
This should not be taken tr
mean that the film is a complete
waste of time—it Is still head and
shoulders above the average. However, when the movies attempt
to deal with a topic of this scope,
we expect something extraordinary
in the way of handling. Here we
have only an honest attempt at
something groat. NO.WAY OUT is
not a successful film—Stanley Fox.
The American movie market
has been flooded lately with what
certain reviewers (i.e. Louella Parsons) fondly term, "problem movies." Usually it is a social problem which is dealt with, but no
matter what the thesis, the treatment of the whole tear-jerking episode is handled in a manner so Insensitive that the thesis is swamped in gooey sentiment. It generally
strikes me that it is this very
insensltivity which gavo rise to
the "problem" in tho first place,
We had Lost Boundaries, which
dealt with tbe Negro question, and
th o n Oontlemcn's Agreement,
which dealt with the Jewish
question, both handled In a manner containlny so mucli emotional

chorus to be devoured. Tied to a nearby-
stake is a history professor who is snivelling
and cringing. He will be beaten to death
when Aeneas's dyspepsia starts bothering
him. Meanwhile Aeneas is engrossed by First
and Second Woman, who have been hired
from a local Vodvil roduction. They are doing
n bubble dance, and Aeneas's close-set, pig-
'like eyes become dull with lust.
Enter Don Duguid with his hat clutched
to his bosom. He mumbles something to the
chorus about free beer, and exits. Tbe chorus
cheers wildly, and stampedes the whole cast
off the stage to the tune of "Cigaroetes and
Whuskey and Wild, Wild Women."
The narrator proclaims a five-minute
truce. The First Servant walks up the aisles
selling popcorn.
The scene turns back to Dido, who has
been "overcome by the Spirit, and is mumbling incoherently. Aeneas, who has mme to
court Dido, i.s met by a committee of chorus
members headed by Don Duguid, who slap
him on the back, hand him a cigar, and pour
him a beer. They tell dirty stories for five
minutes, and have almost lapsed into a convention when Aeneas is interrupted by a
sailor, who had to get a line in somewhere.
Aeneas is reminded that he must announce his intentions toward Dido. Torn with
indecision he rushes to the bathroom to
soliliquize. Meanwhile the Sorceress, the First
Witch and the Second Witch come onto the
stage disguised as the Andrew Sisters and
s-ng "Good Night, Irene." Tho orchestra mistakes the tune for "God Save the Kinds'] and
the audience hurriedly leaves. The show
ends ot this point, the chorus depleted nf
beer, Aeneas lost in .he bathroom, and Didn
cut cold.
LETTER TO
THE EDITOR
Kditor,  Thc   Ubyssey,
Ilcai- Sir:
In regards to your "letter to
tho editor," wo wish lo niuko the
following comments on your caustic remarks regarding the endeavours of URC to place American
football on a level with the other
teams of tho Evergreen Conference.
We wisli io thank those so-called football fanatics and in particular the sports writers who are de-
mandlng the inauguration here of
AS which will enable deserving
students to carry on their studies
at the university and at the same
time  bolster the varsity* squad.
Whether you realize it or not,
Mr. Todd, football Is only one of
tho four major conference sports.
If football Is dropped tho other
three also have to be eliminated.
As a spectator's sport, there are
few that can excel American football. Not only "rah, rah boys with
their dew-eyed freshettes sporting their latest fur coats" but also
a few thousand avid fans support
their team. To this may be added
the hundreds of active alumni who
show that they aro still Interested
in tho alma mater. American football outdraws any other sport on
the campus.
Regarding "Individual Initiative,"
we beg to differ with you. American football takes as much if not
more knowledge and intestinal for
titude than any other sport. As far
as football is concerned we are
under tho Impression that you
know very  little  about  it.
The "mere handful of enthusiastic boys in n few of our secondary
schools'' is slowly growing, until
now football is one of the major
sports in most of the big high
schools in tlio  city.
It is developing speedily and
should lu a few years provide
enough football players to allow
scholarships to .lie slackened. The
scholarships we are asking for aro
to fill the gap between now and
the time the high schools will lie
able to produce athletes of the
quarlly and quality to sustain American football on this campus.
Your three suggestions, Mr,
Todd, would bo detrimental to the
name of the university whicli wo

Story Not in Game, But in Chat
With Linfield Health-PE Head
By RON PINCHIN
,  This is a football story. •
Saturday last, UBC Thunderbirds American football team
paid a visit to McMinnville, Oregon, to contest their grid talents
with that city's Linfield College Wildcats. The result was a
humiliating 46-0 defeat at the hands of the hometowners.

appearance of the season, staved

one occasion by pulling off some
outstanding saves In the Varsity
goal.
The 'Birds took on an international flavor ln the second half
when an Ethiopian student, Meseln
Abebe, was put ln at oetside-Wt
replacing Kenny Campbell. Carrying a meagre 110 pound;*, Abebe
resembled a gazelle when sprinting
after the ball.

Letter To The  Editor
Kditor,  Tiie   Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
With reference to the present
controversy over football and the
subsidization of athletics at UHC,
1 would like to draw your reader's
attention to an article In the Saturday Evening Post of October 14
—an article which should be read
by everyone Interested in this
problem—and in particular to the
following remarks, made by Dr.
John Hannah, President of Michigan State University:
"Football ls a college's hIiow
window. It's a false front too often.
That's why I don't want the product we're selling the public misrepresented.
"I see nothing wrong in having
good teams and giving scholarships
to athletes. Helping a. boy through
college is an altruistic act that
benefits society, provided one con
dition is observed. The boy must
get passing grades in his studies
and make normal progress toward
a degree every year. I like football as fan and as an executive.
When we had to drop it during thc
war, I learned something I always
had suspected. Football unifies
college communities and creates
morale that is desirable. That's
why I don't want to see the game
degenerate into a muscle show between two gangs of hired gladiators."
Without further commont, I am
sure   that   thousands   of  students
and faculty and alumni will most
heartily echo and agree with that
statement. It is' to be hoped that
they will express their opinion in
the   appropriate   fashion.
Your sincerely, .
Dave ISrousson, Ap. Sc 19.
Member.  Alumni  Asso.
Executive.
UBC Field Hockey
Specialists Look
For League Trophy
UBC is fighting hard for a
place in the play-off of the
B.C. Mainland Grass hockey
league.
Winning their first official
game of the season against East
Indians 2-1, the Birds dropped
a close one last Saturday to
St. Georges 5-2. The University's other entry into the
league, tho Cardinals, lost to
the Cricketeers 3-0.
Field hockey has been gaining
popularity ,the past two years us
is evidenced by the Increasing number of athletes wishing to play the
game.
Students are realizing that this
sport, which ln the past was regarded as a game for girls, has
as many thrills as soccer and is
certainly just as gruelling and requires as much skill.
Not only Is field hockey becoming more popular on thc campus, but a few of Vancouver's high
schools aro contemplating joining
the league.' Latest entry is St.
(leorge's who aie reputed to have
one of the finest, defensive groups
in tiie city.
Tlio two University teams hold
regular practices Thursday at 1*J:,'i0
p.m. on tlio fields behind Hrock
Hall.
But the  story comes  not  from*
the game Itself, but from the re-1
suit of an Interview with Mr. II. 0. |
Smith, Llnfleld's director of Health
and   Physical  Education.
Linfleld College houses approximately GOO students, 400 of whom
are girls. Of the 200 remaining
pupils, whom we consider on football's eligibility list, 65 turned out
for first practices..
The game opened with UBC receiving. Two incomplete passes
and 'Birds were forced to kick out
of danger. A poor pass-back from
centre, however, obliged "Big Dave
Players Receive Assistance
MacFarlane" to run with the ball.
Linfield took over on the visitors'
20-yard strlpo.
With their squads stabilized for
the season at 55 ball players, the
Wildcats field both Jaycee and
Varsity teams.
Tightening up their defense, UBC
stopped an early Linfleld drive on
the 8-yard line: After gaining but
one first down," on a pass play
from quarterback Gord Fleinons
to end Dick Matthews, McMlnn-
vllle's Don Marchant Intercepted a
pass to tally the game's first touchdown.
Based on scholastic and athletic
ability, potential football players
may receive grants to attend the
college. Any student possessing
(he aforementioned requirements,
providing he is ln the upper half
of bis high school graduating
class, may receive a scholarship
to Linfleld.
After having'evaded four potential, tacklers, Wildcats' Harry Scjil-
bel drove.across the touchllno to
open tho second quarter. End John
Huggins converted to make tho
score 130.
Grants are also allowed those
students who do maintenance work.
Should a student need a part-time
Job, a position of this nature is
"found" for him.
Minutes dater, UBC was again
forced ,to kick, but onrushlng Wildcats blocked MacFarlano's boot
back to the 10-yard line. Two plays
through Thunderbirds line resulted in the third hometown score.
Convert was successful.
Peoplo surrounding Linfleld College are' formed Into what is called the "Buck of the Month Club."
Citizens of the community pay one
dollar per month to receive a News
Letter, which Advises them of the
team's progress. Monies received
are primarily for football promotion. *
The half ended with UBC still
vainly trying to find the break
which would put them on the move.
Players must maintain a 5-1
passing ratio to remalu on the
eligibility list.
The second stanza opened with
Linfleld receiving the klckoff.
Three successive first downs put
the ball on UBC's 25-yard stripe.
Hometown quarterback Mel Fox
then proceeded to fade back to
toss a potential touchdown pass,
Hut finding no receivers, elected
to run around 'Birds rushing linemen. '
A third successful convert and
UBC was behind 27-0.
Student Fees Cover Losses
Student body fees at Linfleld I drive to tho 'Bird 10-yard line, an
are IT. dollars, of which a sizeable j end zone pass, and the score set-
percentage Is for maintaining foot-1 tied at 4C-0.
Senior A Hoopers
Prepare for Opener
One week from Wednesday, Dick
Penn's Senior A basketball team
plays its first gnmo.
"The boys have boon practicing
every night and tho selection of
players is nearly complete," said
Penn. With tlio exception of Jeff
Craig, Ron Stewart and Ray Durante the club consists almost entirely ot newcomers.
i
Among  newcomers   are   George
Seymour, Gundy McLeod, Jack
Hamilton, Sndlack and Zaharko.
The latter played with Duke of
Connaught High School when they
won the Now Westminster championship last season. Jim Carter,
another newcomer was among tho
top scorers In the Inter A Intercity league last year.
Chief's opponent has not yet
been  decided.

Once again, I'MC was obliged to
kick out of danger, and once again
the ball went astray. Linfield took
over on the 'Bird lR-yard line, and
proceeded to get another touchdown. Convert, however, was wide
of tiie posts.
The stadium is not only a stadium, but also a dormitory. Twenty-
six rooms house f>- .students, thereby rendering the building self-
supporting. Structure was erected

UBC's Bunny Lotskar crossed
the Linfield goal line for visitor's
only score, but play was called
back for backfield in motion. Shortly, Linfleld fullback Randall liar-
rison broke loose on a dazzling
GO-yard run to once again add to
Wildcat's bulging scoreshect. Huggins converted.
Following a brief spurt from
UHC, paced by Jerry Nestnuin, Linfield again intercepted a pass. A

In Cup Play
A reversed decision by the
referee dimmed UBC hopes o!
winning the coveted Miller
Cup when the Chiefs battled
South Burnaby to & 0-0 score
at Central Park Saturday.
In the closing minutes ot play,
.UBC left wing John Newton slid
over for a try, but Immediately
after acknowledging lt the referes
nullified the score on the assumption that Newton had skidded right
over the dead ball line.
Up to those last disappointing
minutes, the Chiefs were definitely
out-played by a much tighter South
Burnaby squad.
The Birdmen lacked the hustle
to take advantage of the many
scoring opportunities open to them
in the first half. Their three line,
playing very loosely, fumbled repeatedly deep ln Burnaby territory,
and big Austen Tajjlor just missed
an offside penalty kick 10 minutes after the start.
In the first period Burnaby fullback Frank Kozak was Injured In
a scrum play, and was taken to
hospital with a possible fractured
ankle.
South Burnaby almost put the
Chiefs out of contention for the
Cup in the second half when they
kept the ball almost constantly
In Bird territory. Tho Chief's ei«
perlcnce, however, kept Burnaby
from pulling off a big upset.
