Pep Clubbers
Irate Vancouver citizens who object to having their orderly life disrupted by U. B. C. snake parades
will have a hard time in future
deciding who to blame for the affairs.
Laat  year,  Senate   banned   Initiation and snake parade* In general, thus  letting Itself out from
under mny responsibility for damage to peraon or property Incurred  during  froth   festivities.
Wednesday,    ln    almost    unanimously rejecting a motion put forward by Norman DePoe, the Alma
Mater Society refused to have anything  to  do with  snake  parades.
DePoe, declaring that there ls no
use   Ignoring   something   that  happens year after year, urged that the
A,   M.   S.   officially   sponsor   snake
parades   ln   future,   ln   order   that
they might be better controlled.
In  subatitutlon  for  the   OePee
proposal, the  meeting adopted a
motion to set up a student oommlttoe for'the purpoae of Investigating the possibility of bringing
back to the oampua aome form of
"vigorous"   Initiation.
Speaking   against   the   move    to
place  snake parades on  the official
A.  M.  S.  initiation  program,  Frank
Thornloe    declared    that    such    affairs are noted for their rowdyism.
"I   know,"   he   said.     "1   was   in
several   of   them."
Evan ap Roberts charged that at
the Frosh Smoker members of the
Pep Club had planned the snake parade, termed by ap Roberts as "an
adolescent  show  of babyishness."
Both Lyall Vine and Malcolm
Brown spoke against the measure,
and Dave Carey left the chair to
warn students that they had no
chance of getting Senate to reverse
Us opinion.
Status of the S.C.M. will have to
remain In doubt for a little while
longer, while Students' Council hunt
about and in and out for the S.C.M.
constitution and the recently submitted amendment.
The original constitution was filed
when the S.C.M. came on the campus, taking the place of the Y.M.C.A.,
about fifteen  years  ago.
Two years ago when a paid secretary was taken on, the S.C.M.
amended their constitution to provide for his status, but neglected to
forward the amendment to the A.
M.  S.
Council hasn't worried over it
for the full two years, but asked
for the submission of the amended
constitution at the opening of this
The S.C.M. promptly complied.
But when they inquired what conclusions the Council committee of
investigation had reached, they
were informed that both the original constitution and the newly-submitted amendment have been either
lost or mislaid  by the  A.M.S.
And so meanwhile, the hunt's on.
No Ubyssey on Tuesday
Because of Thanksgiving
There will be no issue of the
Ubyaaey Tuesday, following the
long Thanksgiving Day week-end.
Both Saturday and Monday
have been declared university
holidays by President Klinck.
Next issue of the Ubyssey will be
published   a   week   from   today.

Today noon the traditional Cairn Ceremony will be held
for the ninth time at U.B.C.
Too few studenta are aware of the significance of
this service, but those who are cannot fail to be struck
by the parallel between the conditions which led to the
setting up of the Calm in 1922 and the conditions on
this campus at the present time.
In 1922, from the cramped and uncomfortable quarters
of the University at Fairview, a large group of students
marched each with a rock from the locality of their classrooms, to the Point Qrey site.
There each deposited his rock on a pile, and it 1b around
that pile that the granite facing of the Cairn now stands.
This action came In the midst of a province-wide campaign of the Btudents to have the site of the University
removed to Point Qrey. Before the campaign, of course,
there had been continued agitation from many Bources for
better quarters, but lt took the concerted and demonstrative
petitioning of an enthusastic student body to force the government finally to act.
By 1925 the new buildings were finished and ready to
house anywhere up to 1500 students.
Today the same buildings that were completed ln 1925
stand without addition ecept for the Gymnasium and Stadium built by the Alma Mater Society. And these same buildings attempt to accommodate over 2200 students.
In another year or two there will be over 2500
young men and women seeking to attend the University
of British Columbia, and if accommodations are not
increased, some will have to be undeservedly turned
away. Since it would take at least a year to complete
new buildings, they should be started now.
But surely the students should not have to go through
another strenuous campaign to force the government to act.
It means skipping lectures for days in a row; it means spending money for transportation to different parts of town; it
means the expenditure of time and energy that could far
better be spent within the walls of a larger U.B.C.
Surely It would leave a far better taste in the mouths of
British Columbians If they could say "The government Is
providing better accommodations at the University," rather
than, "Our Universty was so crowded that the students
themselves had to campaign and petition before the Oovernment would act."
Students will go to the Cairn Ceremony today wondering: "Is what we need a Cairn Ceremony, or ls it another
Startling figures for student summer employment prove that university education in B. C. is not the
privilege of frivolous fortunates.
Over SO per cent, of men students
and 20 per cent, of women students
worked in all branches of industry
during the holidays and have invested more than $200,000 of their
earnings in the acquirement of further education. Throughout all

Through Struggle" to such a marked degree.

Students' own initiative, enthusiasm and nerve, rather than pull are

were obtained this summer through
the University Employment Bureau. It is suggested that a student blood-transfusion for this institution might be of value.

M.S. President Dave Carey and
Peggy Fox, W.U.S. president, will
recall the activities of past years
which brought about the completion of the present buildings, ln
speeches from a special platform,
erected around the monument for
the occasion.
The ceremony, which originated
in 1928, ls appropriate this year ln

new buildings, both by Faculty and
It occurs around a memorial of
the determined effort of U. B. C.
students ln 1922 to establish, ln a
province-wide campaign, a proper
campus ln spite of discouragement
from Victoria.
In this year a group of enthusiastic students marched from the
"Fairview Shacks" to the new site
on Point Qrey ln an endeavor to
have the university moved from
the cramped and Inadequate quarters  of  Fairview.
With them they brought the
stones which compose the Cairn today, placing Inside the names of

of Department of Extension, when
he addressed the University Film
Society, Tuesday noon in Aggie 100,
Dr. Shrum explained that the
members of the Film Society would
be able to take a vital part in such
a production, and that the Department of Extension would co-operate
In providing the camera, films, and
a  competent  cameraman.

A.M.S. Meeting
Approves Idea
University overcrowding will be
Investigated by a student committee to be named by council, it was
decided at Wednesday's Alma Mater meeting.
Proposed In a motion by Dick
Montgomery, the committee will
deal ln particular with library facilities.
"There are not enough seats over
there now," Montgomery said in a
brief speech that followed his motion.
"What will happen when exams
come near?" he  asked.
Montgomery made his motion,
he declared, after waiting through
the entire meeting to find out if
anyone else was going to deal
with the matter.
"I understand from the press
that there's going to be a student
campaign,"    Montgomery   stated.
The committee proposal carried
with little comment. A unanimous
vote approved the Idea, leaving selection of the personnel up to
Setting up such a committee ls
taken by some to be the flrst step
In another monster student campaign for Improved campus facilities.
Agitation for government assistance is being made in Vancouver
by a daily newspaper, and on the
campus by the Ubyssey.
One of the worst problems of
overcrowding is the shortage of
office space for professors, particularly in the Arts Building.
The Men's Upper Common Room
was long ago swallowed up by the
French Department, and still the
congestion grows worse with no
more room for expansion except
the two telephone booths. In some
cases, four or five professors are
required to share one stuffy cell,
sparsely furnished with two desks
and  some chairs.
In every case the offices are badly ventilated, and professors being
what they are, the rooms are buried under books, leaflets, fossils,
dust, and full of stale tobacco
"Unless 1 keep the windows
closed," one professor stated,
"there is a terrific draught whenever someone opens the door, and
a regular blizzard of papers sweeps
out   into   the   hall."
Another complained that his office was too small to contain the
books necessary to his lectures,
and he was seriously impeded by
forgetting to bring them from
For most professors, work is impossible in their present offices,
and their only use is as a place to
leave hats, umbrellas and unmarked   exam   papers.
More Money Needed
To Finish Stadium
Between $600 and $700 will be
needed before Varsity's stadium can
be completed, Dave Carey told the
Wednesday  A.M.S.  meeting.
The $40,000 bond issue did not
Include finances  for such  things
as a squash court, the president
told the meeting.
"How will the money be raised?"
Carey   was    asked,   and    answered
that   it   would   be   done   either   by
budgeting   for   a   surplus,   getting
private funds,  or just waiting.

One encouraging note struck amongst the confusion
of Wednesday's Alma Mater meting was the fact that the
auditorium was nearly tilled with students.
At last, lt is to be hoped, some interest in affairs of the
Alma Mater Society Is being shown by the members of the
Society. Too much apathy has characterized student matters ln the past.
Next step in the progress towards a live and interested
student body should be an Increase ln discussion on important questions at assemblies.
Every student should be encouraged not only to attend
A.M.S. and class meetings, but to take an active part in the
discussions that feature these gatherings.
Today noon, three major events will take place. Leading In Importance with the Cairn Ceremony, every one of
the three would under normal circumstances draw a good
crowd of students.
As it is, decisions will have to be made on which to
attend, with a good many students finding their desires
divided between all three.
There is no excuse for this situation. Those in charge
of such things should be more careful in giving permission
for noon meetings without some consideration of whether
or not there is to be a clash of Interests.
Junior member John Brynelsen, in charge of rooms and
dates, should exercise his authority in this matter.
University Students, according to an account ln this
issue Invest some $200,000 of their own money in their education.
This, together with other interesting facts in the same
story, is one of the greatest arguments ln favor of students
and universities in general that can be stated.
No boy or girl who went to university "for the fun of it,"
would slave all summer in order to get money for fees and
expenses. No student who felt that a university education
wasn't worth the investment, would place $300 of his own
money aside yearly for four years, Just for the purpose of
wasting lt.
A university education, from these facts and figures,
would seem to be an excellent Investment for any young
man or woman.
Council Will Strive
To Patch Relations
With Local Public
Favorable publicity for the student body will be the outstanding
feature of Council policy for the
coming year, according to the
statement made at Wednesday's
A.M.S. meeting.

a series of student speakers who
will invade such organizations as
service clubs, and the annual
Open House Day, Council will
strive to patch up what have become slightly uncertain relationships with business ond government leaders, and the population
In general.
Also on Council policy is Malcolm "quotation mark" Brown's

Random Ramblings
WTB   were   vegetating    the   other
"^ afternoon at our favorite table
at the "Dolphin," waiting for the
llrst autumn leaf to fall, and watching the golden ocean twinkling
under the October haze across the
Sandheads, when tt suddenly occurred to us, for no particular reason, that our French friend Henri
hadn't written for an obscenely
long time.
Possibly it was the trees that
made us think of lt. Henri was a
lover of trees. "It must indeed be
pleasant to walk one's self among
so tremendous trees," Henri once
remarked in his purple Ink, reply-
In to a supposedly French version
of what the local Tourist Association says about Stanley Park.
Thinking It over we were a bit
upset by Henri's long silence. Such
friendships are by nature frail, of
course created willy nllly as they
are by ambitious language teachers. The most one can expect ls
some polite advice on Irregular
verbs and an occasional postcard
of a ninth century cathedral. For
all that Henri was a fine fellow,
one who admired the basketball,
enjoyed golpg to a dance with his
cousin, and once when he was sixteen had been to nouen on his bicycle.
So we couldnt help wondering
why Henri had ceased to write.
Had. those grizzly bear stories been
too steep, after all? Or perhaps
with the rise of the Popular Front
government he had come to see us
for the flrst time ln our true colors,
as a smug, stupid, greedy, British
imperialist. Or had he found, as
we had, that there simply wasn't
anything more to say?
And bo we pondered, over a tall
glass of Vienna coffee, crowned
with a liberal smudge of whipped
cream, waiting for the autumn
leaves to start falling, wondering
If Henri liked to vegetate on October afternoons somewhere along
the  Left  Bank  perhaps.  .  .   .
Just then we saw lt. It was a
iouglsh, yellow leaf, and it fell
quickly and ztg-zagglngly (we can
show you the very spot if you
doubt us), and Just as it vanished
behind the grape arbor a cold wisp
of fog stole molstlly under our
table past our ankles, so we paid
the  bill  quickly and  left.
Ah, Autumn . .  . Autumn. .  . .

VVTE would be the last to suggest
" that these cloisters of learning
are not well populated—in spots,
at least, and at times—nevertheless
an incident that recently forced us
to abandon our high moral code for
the sake of Alma M. seems worth
The powers that be commanded
us to squire a cameraman from a
local Journal around the campus
so that he could get photographic
prof of our overcrowded conditions.
S'easy, we chortled, and towed
him off to the Science Building.
We searched floor after floor, lab.
by lab., and none were even a quarter full. So we tried Agriculture
—with  the  same  result.
"Well, Applied Science ls always
crowded anyway,' we consoled the
maestro. "Why didn't I think of
that flrst!" And we loaded up for
the third time with camera equipment. So naturally Applied Science was deserted, too, and right in
the middle of the afternoon!
In the end we ambushed a dozen
freshmen and other ranks, stacked
them around a corner of the empty Bl. lab., and immortalized them
as a group of overcrowded biology
students. A crowded classroom
effect was achieved1 by having the
people in the back seats of an English class stand up around the walls
and look tired.
"Confidentially, Just between you
and me," said the cameraman as
he prepared to depart, "Where do
you keep these hordes of overcrowded students. I suppose they
are kept pretty busy these dayn
overcrowding   the   Library?"
We suppose they are, but we
wouldn't know.

Unrest on Campus
"I am appalled by the lack of political movements amongst the
Canadian youth. They are far behind the youths of other countries
ln this respect."
This was the startling statement made on Wednesday by Dashan
Singh, one of several students from other lands attending U.B.C. this
Just two months ago Darshan
landed ln Canada, completing a
long trip from his home in Langerl,
ln the province of Punjab, India.
For almost an hour Wednesday he
entertained a Ubyssey reporter
with a description of his own province and an account of conditions
in India today.
"It's difficult for people ln Canada to realize the dense population
of India, even on the plains," declared Darshan. "Cillages of 200
to 500 families are one to two
miles apart; towns the size of
Chllllwaek between eight and ten."
"The villagers are all farmers,
and as meat ls extremely expensive, live almost on what they
grow—wheat and sugar-cane. They
have no farm machinery; tilling
is done with crude plows drawn
by   bullocks.
"India la not free," he continued. "Here In Canada you
have suoh freedom—freedom of
speeoh, freedom of assembly,
frssdom of ths prsss. In India,
If ens says a word against ths
British Oovernment, hs finds

• word criticising ths government, ths editor Is Jelled.
...."There ls great discontent in India. Unemployment figures are
tremendous and there are no great
industries to absorb the men.
There are many cotton mills but
not enough to make any substantial difference."
To illustrate his point, Mr. Singh
told of a story, printed in a government paper of a man who couldn't pay a 60c tax to the government and was thrown in Jail. The
officials confiscated his one possession, an $8.00 bullock, as the price
of  his  freedom.

When questioned considering the
future, Darshan Bald that, although
he could only express his own opinion, he felt confident some compromise arrangement with the

soon, whereby India would obtain
a status similar to a dominion.
