Bagnall Refutes
LPP Club Charge
Communistic charges that "the Student LPP Club is being discriminated
against in the matter of lecture room
bookings" were refuted Thursday by
AMS co-ordinator of activities, Bob
Bagnall, in an official statement to all
campus clubs.
The statement read "all political
clubs must give precedence to nonpartisan organizations th the bookiftg
of 'major' lecture rooms." This, officials stated, refers to all political
clubs,  not  just  the  LPP  Club.
A note from the AMS booking office
to the LPP Club informing them
that they could no longer have Arts
100 (which is classed as a 'major
lecture room') on Monday noon led
to  the communistic charges.
Hams Report
Draft Brief
For Radio
Executives of the UBC Amateur Radio Club, VE7ACS, report that they are having difficulty in attempts to organize
an inter-Varsity radio link to
pass Canadian University Press
UBC, operating one of the most
powerful transmitters on the shortwave bands, has taken the initiative
in an attempt to obtain the hook-up.
Though notices have been placed in
Canadian Ham publications and the
CUP has given the project publicity,
as yet there has been little success.
A brief, written by Arthur Holmes,
ARC president, will be presented to
the conference of the Western, University Radio Federation by Ernie
Perrault who will represent both the
Radio Society and the Ham club.
Representatives will be asked to
contact hams on their own campuses
or enlist the aid of those in their
The Ham club urges students from
other provinces, who have knowledge
of powerful stations in university
towns, to contact the UBC club.
There will be an important
meeting of all pubsters in the
Publications office at 3:30 p.m.
today.    This includes reporters.
New Zealand Prof Heads
UBC Social Anthropology
New Zealand professor of social anthropology, Dr. H. B.
Hawthorn, recently arrived in British Columbia to become head
of the newly-created social anthropology division on the UBC
Dr. Hawthorn hopes to gain a
thorough knowledge of the B. C. Indian while in Vancouver.
When asked to give his impressions
of the campus Dr. Hawthorn expressed amazement at the "multifarious"  activities of  the students.
He wondered when they "find a
minute to read and reflect" while
attending so many lectures.
He finds it hard to get used to
having so many older students on tha
campus. "I have to wear a hat to
identify myself as a professor," tie
Before coming to UE'C Dr, Hawthorn had been teaching at Sarah
Lawrence College, an outstanding experimental   college   in  New   Zealand.
Previously he studied Negro and
Indian cultures in the United States
and spent a year examining Spanish-
American life and the Indians of
Bolivia, Chile and Peru.
In Hawaii he was interested in
studying the different racial and cultural backgrounds of the students
who spoke of "our ancestors who
landed at Plymouth Rock."
According to Dr. Hawthorn these
young Americans were justified in
referring to the pilgrim "fathers as
their "cultural'' ancestors.
Dr. Hawthorn has frequently had to
clarify that he is not a "bone man"
but that his main interest lies in
the cultural development of primitive

Zany Antics Panic
Morning Lectures
Beginning with a mass gathering at the university gates
early yesterday morning, the
Jokers kept students roaring
with laughter until late in thu
afternoon with their initiation
regalia and riotous antics.
Helping the commissionaires direct
traffic to begin with, they soon turned to other diversions such as chasing
each other around the campus with
bows and arrows, and riding through
lecture-rooms in kiddie-cars and wagons.
During noon hour, a fashion show
was held in the Caf, where club
president: Dick Ellis busied himself
snipping off the skirt's to what he
considered a suitable length. The
last model had his skirt sheared off
well above the knees.
Two Jokers appearing in the auditorium soon after the 11:30 a.m. lecture began started students laughing
uproariously when they appeared
from behind the curtains and commenced shaving. When the professor
taking the lecture learned what the
distraction was, he joined in with
the students.
Livingstone Meets
Ellis With Gloves
AMS president Grant Livingstone and Joker president Dick
Ellis will square off in the gymnasium at 12:30 p.m. today "to
settle once-and-for-all" the ruling ousting the Jokers from
their clubrooms.
Tlie "colossal" battle will feature
a monster pepmeet and Joker homecoming complete with the visual
Joker antics. Frank Nightengale's
'band1, cheerleadeji-s, and UBC's
American football team are to lend
atmosphere to the gym rally.
All past, present and pledge Jokers
will be out in full force, including
the  Levey   brothers,   alumni   Jokers.
"Following Livingstone's massacre," state Joker officials, "there will
be a Council-Joker basketball game
to heap further humiliation on Council."
"Ellis in half a round," sj id his
second Bob Osborne, infamous for
his "fixed" bouts in other athletic
circles, Livingstone will lay down
just like that American football tearo
I keep betting on."
Livingstone had "nothing to say"
when phoned by a Daily Ubyssey reporter yesterday evening.

It is gratifying to watch the machinery
of democracy at work ... a sort of reassurance that the voting public is not merely a
tool in the hands of its elected leaders.
Our reference is to the fact that at least
300 students had sufficient courage in their
conviction that the Fall Ball should be held
ia the Commodore, to sign petitions circulated
in the caf Wednesday and yesterday.
The petitions will be presented to the
student council in an effort to have the
campus legislators reverse their ruling which
vetoed the USC plan to hold the ball downtown . . . favoring the campus Armory.
Council evidently sees the ball as an
excellent means of garnering several thousand badly needed dollars for the AMS cof
fers. Their contention that the drill hall,
given soft lights, tables, professional caterers,
and several hundred pounds of powdered
borax, might be perfectly satisfactory.
On the other hand a good number of
the voting public evidentally don't see it
that way. They contend that transportation
problems, incongruity of strapless gowns and
the barn-like interior of the structure, and
borax stains on shoes and hem-lines, are
sufficient evidence to damn the drill hall-
Inasmuchas the student council is presumed to be responsible to the masses, the
outcome will be the wish of the majority
and so will depend on the length of the
opposing petitions.
We are afraid that it is time something
was done to regulate the flood of letters to
the editor that arrive at qur offices every
It is only with some reluctance that we
impose any restrictions on letter writing because we firmly believe that this service is
one of the most useful offered in a student
newspaper. We do not wish to give anyone
the impression that we don't want his letters;
we are happy to receive both favorable and
critical letters. It is one way we have of
gauging the preference of the majority—our
At the same time, unless some sort of
limitation, particularly on length, is instituted, we shall have less and less space for
news coverage—something we believe to be
more or less important in a newspaper.
Recently contributions have been held
over as long as two weeks before getting into
print because of the backlog we have accumulated. Because many letters lose their
significance  unless  printed   immediately  we
think that it would be good to attempt a
The only possible solution is to restrict
the length of letters to, say 200 words. We
believe that with a little effort most complaints and/or congratulations can be dealt
with within this limit.
There are one or two other points which
might be cleared up at this time. We cannot
print letters received without the name of the
writer. This does not mean the name must
be published, but it does mean we require it
for our file.
Whenever possible we suggest that letters
be typed {double-space) and that they be
submitted in duplicate. Where this is done
it is not necessary for us to re-type the lettern
before sending it to the linotype so precluding
possible errors.
Finally, we promise lo print without
change all letters received complying with
the above suggestions. Where letters are
longer than 200 words we may have to
condense them-

Behind The Headlines
By Jack Wasserman
My brother Pierre is what is usually
being called a stranger in these parts. He is
coming here from many hours and is here in
this fine country only a short distance. As
matter of fact my brother is arriving on the
day that present transportation difficulties
are by way of becoming difficult.
Pierre is being a gent who is firmly believing in the inevitability of modern methods
of transit and as such he also thinking that
feet are something that are existing only for
the purpose of giving Fats Waller something
to warble about.
This unhappy combination of circumstances is making for complications, more
fhan somewhat. The first thing that is happening is that my brother Pierre is doing some
looking into the situation and then making
with vocabulary, about big business, labor
problems and other related causes of his
The comments which my brother is making are now presented for the readers' consideration more than slightly amended so as
to be reading in the best possible English.
Pierre is starting from the point of utter
confusion what with the conflicting charges
and etcetera that he is rinding in the newspapers. He is pointing with misunderstanding
at the union charge which is inferring that
all is not according to the rules of love and
affection as far as the company is being concerned. But then, as Pierre is hastening to
assert, love and affection might be fun but it
isn't buying the groceries.
There is by way of being a particle of
doubt in the mind of my brother as to the
value of the split-shift, which kind of hours
are annoying the working gents no end.
Words of considerable weight and profanity are also being said by Pierre on the
subject which is closest to his heart. If the
fare is taking a considerable upward motion
after the strike and the company is making
like a wage increase is being the cause of the
effect, this is being what lower class characters like himself are in the habit of describing
as the "old army game". Getting out on a
limb is being an old, Spanish custom in
Pierre's family so that is by way of the reason
he is not having the slightest cold feet about
making the statement he is just making.
Elucidation being required more than
somewhat in this particular case Pierre is
going on to say that there is always the possibility that the company is thinking that
maybe this fact is being true, which Pierre
is thinking is doubtful.
Pierre is finding that the people of Vancouver are acting almost as godlike as is being
possible for people, in Vancouver. The opinion is being the result of the fact that many
souls (and people, too) are stopping and
giving out with the suggestion that my brother ride with them; this being in spite of the
fact that my brother is not blessed with a
face. He is even making the rash statement
that most former trolley travellers are possibly just that former.
The suggestion is being made with special
reference to university students since they
are spending too much for carfare which is
Pierre is by way of going someplace far
from here at the moment that this is being
written. The departure is being accompanied
with the suggestiton that this is being particularly low to be quoting him when these
ideas might even be those of his brother but

Dear Sir:
We acknowledge Mr. Charles J.
Marshall's courteous criticism of the
serious oversight committed by Western Washington College's band in
failing to play the Canadian National
anthem in the opening ceremony
of the UBC - Washington football
An apology, I realize, cannot sufficiently mitigate * the unpleasant reactions created, on our campus as
well as yours. Nevertheless, I sincerely want to extend to you genuine
regrets over this breach of courtesy.
I feel certain that 1 express the sentiments of apology of our band and
entire school.
Although we feel fully responsible
for what occured, and wish to make
no excuses, may I relate some factors
which created confusion. Their explanation here might allow things to
be arranged in a more organized
fashion in the future and hence avoid
embarassing incidents.
1. Our department would have been
more prepared if we had been notified of the musical organizations you
were bringing down, the persons in
charge of them, and the activities
they wished to conduct at the game.
We learned of your band's coming
via the local newspaper the Friday
night prior to the game.
2. At the game our band director
and cheer leaders tried to contact
your band leaders before the game
to find out how things could be coordinated successfully. We did talk
to one student representative who
appeared to be in charge of affairs,
and were led to believe that one of
your bands would take the field be-
before tho game and play your anthem
leaving our band to play ours.
3. When part of this arrangement
did not materialize, it was too late
to make adjustments in our own band
routine. Even after one additional
week's experience, I now feel our
band could meet such an emergency
..r.il carry on. As it's debut, performance i--, its' first week (if organization lmwee er, vee imf-jrf iuntely did
not have that experience at our command.
Aseeuin may I say ah'houch the above
fetors    eonstitute    no    excuse,    since
there  can  be no excuse. I  hope they
do   throw   a   little   lit'ln'   on   the   disorganization before the game and our
attempts to brin.™ some order out' of it,
Very truly yours,
Frank D'Andrea
Dear Sir:
That Mr. Bewley condones the exodus of Canadian University graduates
to the U.S.A. does not' strike me as
being particularly funny or nonsensical and I fail to visualize the taxpayer
chuckling to himself over this migration. The taxpayer may not have
had the advantage of Mr. Bewley's
education in Economics, perhaps that
is why he cannot see the romantic side
of growing tomatoes to pay taxes to
provide endowments for our university.
The writer states that the university
and the sewage disposal plant both
•have as their patrons the taxpayer.
The taxpayer realizes a useful service from the sewage disposal plant—
the elimination of his garbage. But
does he consider that the disposal of
many of our grads across the line falls
in the same category? We sincerely
hope not.
Mr. Bewley compares the citizen
who drinks from the public water
works with the same university student drinking from the fountain of
knowledge, but all citizens enjoy the
use of the water and pay for it as they
consume it. A privilege minority,
the students, drink an expensive elixir,
part of the cost of which must be
borne by the taxpayer as a whole.
It is time that we st'udents realize
that we are being subsidized in acquiring our education, and we suggest
that when Mr. Bewley next discusses nonsense, he stick to nonsense, and
not include embrassing facts relating
to the lack of duty to Canada by some
of our graduates.
Dear Mr.  Stuart Smith:
I read with interest your letter on
DVA grants but took exception to
the final paragraph.
Unless you consider yourself a self-
appointed champion of our cause you
might have deleted "—and I think
by far the larger majority of student
Campus Coll
by Jack McCaugherty
veterans also is satisfied," out of fairness to this majority which you have
not consulted. It is true that you
stated that you think so, but you
implied that you know.

Mussoc Plans Outlined
University of British Columbia
Musical Society will burst into song
late in November with three musical
productions, which promise first class
campus entertainment.
Better known as the "Mussocs",
the Musical Society is now screening
enlisted talent for the ten principal
roles in de Koven's operetta "Robin
Hood", scheduled for completion
sometime next month. On November
30th, one hundred and fifty picked
voices from the Glee Club will join
Mr. Jacques Singer and the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra in the performance of Mark Blitzstein's "Airborne Symphony." To complete the
November program, the Glee Club
will present its annual concert of
"Robin Hood" is a repeat performance for the Musical Society. According to Mr. Haydn Williams, director of the Musical Society since
1924, it went over big when first performed in 1937. The operetta calls
for a chorus of thirty; ten principals,
thirty minor parts, a twenty-four
piece orchestra, some thirty-one
makeup and costumes artists and
stage crew.
Mr. Williams is also training the
"Airborne Chorus" for the concert
on Novemebr 30th. This production is
being sponsored by all the musical
clubs on th© campus. Mark Blitzstein,
in writing the "Airborne Symphony"
dedicated his work to the U.S. Eighth
Army Airforce. One hundred and
fifty voices, including 75 baritones
and bases, 50 tenors, and 25 contraltos, make up the chorus, which will
join a narrator and the Vancouver
Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Mr. Jacques Singer in the
performance of this work.
The Glee Club, in its concert this
year, will attempt a more difficult
program than the comparatively simple selections they used last year.
"The emphasis will be on light classical and classical songs, said Mr.
Last year, the "Mussocs" packed
their bags, picked up their instruments and crossed the border in an
exchange program, which brought
Gilbert St Sullivan's "H.M.S. Pinafore" to the University of Washington and a. U of W band concert !o
UBC. According to "Robin Hood"
production manager, Doug Wetmore,
the "Mussocs" will bo on the road
again  I his year.
Dou;>; had hard words for the Players Club upstairs. 'They are the ones
who create all the noise and disturb
lectures in tlie Auditorium," he said.
The "friendly" rivalry between the
two groups has not prevented fraternization at the stage crew level. There
is now a joint committee for nonviolent co-operation in handling productions.
One look into Room 207 in the
Auditorium is enough to make a good
case for a merger between the "Mussocs" and the Jokers Club, "we are
all frustrated in here," was the only
explanation offered by a "Mussoc"
in explaining the pink footprints,
elephants, ice-cream cones, cokes,
bugs bunny and a grinning monkey
under the heading "her scienceman
lover," painted on the walls and
ceiling. Another "Mussoc" insisted
that "we hold intelligent conversations here, in commenting on how she
liked membership in the Musical Society, could only repeat "I love it—I
love it." Said Secretary David Patterson, "right now, she is stunned by
it all. Wait until she gets to know
us better."
The University Film Society will
present the British film comedy, "Notorious Gentleman", starring Rex
Harrison, on Tuesday evening, October 28 at 7:30 in the auditorium.
The film portrays Harrison as an
"amiable sort of cad" whose inability to take anything seriously causes
no end of trouble to himself, his
employers, his family, and his friends.

The cards are given on presentation of the Library identification
card and are honored at downtown

Attendance is high for both the
Glee Club and "Airborne Chorus" rehearsals. Commenting on the ability
of  new  members   to  produce  vocal
noises, Mr. Williams emphasized that
it was not hard to get them started.

except Don and Joe will strip for
the Whitman game," Owen said.
From Shaughnessy Hospital comes
word that Joe Fairleigh, injured in
last week's Willamette contest, is
progressing favorably. According to
hospital authorities there is no sign
of any broken bones and it is felt
that Joe will be back on the campus
sometime next week.
But whether or not Fairleigh will
play any more football this year is
another question. Meanwhile, Bobby
Brewer has moved in Joe's quarter
back slot and Harry Mark has replaced Brewer at left half.
Dmitri Goloubef and Bill Sainas,
first-string ends, are still nursing
bruises and although they are expected to see action tomorrow they will
not be in the starting lineup. John
Gray and newcomer Don Chisolm are
slated to replace them.
The Missionaries are also blessed
with-numeroua injuries, however, and
coach Strong has had to move several
linemen into backfield positions.
Another thing both squads have in
common is the fact that neither the
Thunderbirds nor the Missionaries
have won a game this year. And last
year the only victory on the Whitman
calendar was a lucky 21-13 win over
But although Strong will not bring
a winning club to UBC tomorrow he
will certainly bring a heavy one.

just 4000." Student tickets are fifty
cerits and the opening kickoff is
slated for 2 p.m.
The half time show at next week's
Homecoming football contest is going
to be something new for UBC sports
fans. Luke Moyls, Graduate Manager

Track Club is to the sponsor of an
invitational   two-mile  track  race.
The entertainment planned by the
Men's Athletic Directorate and the
Track club will bring together most

All four teams in the first division

and fast, fighting games are expected.
Coaches of the university teams expect
great things this year as hany players

ball squads will see action this weekend, providing of course, that the
weatherman is in a co-operative mood.

way at 2:30. So far this season, the
Varsity eleven has one win, one tie,
and one loss to their credit.
At Prince Edward Park, UBC will
meet the Postal Service team in a
bid for their first win of the season.
To date the UBC lads have played
three tilts without* a victory. The
park is situated at 23rd and Prince
Edward  (between Main and Fraser).

Varsity, undefeated in three starts,
meets the revamped and similarly undefeated Vancouver Rowing Club in

Fresh from last weeks campus win,
over Varsity's brother squad UBC,

Allen, is favored by campus moguls
to win the game.
Opening game of the twin bill will
feature the still winless UBC, and
the hapless North Shore All-Blacks,
