Van. Symphony
Here This Week
Bernard Heinz, Australian Symphony conductor now making a tour
of Canada, will visit the campus Friday noon as guest director of the
Vancouver Symphony Orchestra.
From 11:30 to 1:30 in the Armory,
Mr. Heinz will lead the Symphony
Orchestra in a concert to be presented
under the auspices of the Special
Events Committee of the Literary and
Scientific Executive.
The first announcement of the event
was made late yesterday by Jerry
Macdonald, president of LSE.
Tickets at 25c each will be on sale
in the AMS office and Cafeteria starting this morning, according to Macdonald.
Mr. Heinz is making his tour of
Canada as a guest of the Canadian
Broadcasting Corporation. He has already directed symphony concerts in
Montreal and Toronto as well as leading CBC concert orchestras in national
radio programs from those two cities.
He was to have broadcast a similar
program from CBR last Sunday night
but his arrival in Vancouver was delayed by the severe weather conditions on the prairies.
Mr. Heinz' trip is being called an
"exchange" visit following the tour
which Sir Ernest McMillan made
through Australia last year.
Full details of Friday's concert will
be published in Thursday's Ubyssey.
Med Drive To Reach Hart;
Island Campaign Opened
A unanimous resolution to recommend to Premier Hart
and also to all Boards of Trade on Vancouver Island that funds
be -immediately appropriated for establishment of a medical
school at the University of British Columbia, was passed last
week by the Nanaimo Board of Trade.
The motion—which followed on thef"

medical students Pat Fowler and
Bob Gardner before the board—furthermore "strongly recommended"
that reports be made to the Victoria
Chamber of Commerce supporting the
medical school campaign.
ON THE CAMPUS
During the discussion that followed!
the assembly  was "very much opposed to location of the school of
medicine at the Vancouver General
Hospital," according to Fowler.
The resolution, called for "immedi
ate appropriation of funds for UBC's
hospital and medical school and
operating   budget,   as   recomme;
by the committee of experts aofd the
Board of Governors of the university. ■'
In his address, Fowler started, he had
pointed out to the boaeQ, "the need
for the school, the vifast benefits to
the people of the province that would
secure from a Vaf& rate establishment, and the fatality of any further
compromise or^elay."

China Problems
Reverend K. H. Ting, who was for
eight years the secretary of the student YMCA in China, will address
students in Arts 100 today at 12:30 on
'China's Struggle for Democracy."
Following the talk; i^ which Rev.
Ting will outline the part taken by
students in China's present struggle,
films on post-war life in China will

who spent three years in Shanghai
under  Japanese   occupation.
Candidates
Status On
Declare
Politics
Presidential candidates McKay, Livingstone, and Greer, each had some
tiling to say about politics in their
campaigns.
Bill McKay, chairman of the Discipline Committee, strongly opposed the
political affiliations of his rival candidates Grant Livingstone and Cliff
Greer. "It is amusing to learn that
my fellow candidates day they will
suddenly give up their" political affiliations and be non-partisan. Fortunately, the student body is not so
gullible."
MANY PARTS
McKay believed that "his contacts
with all phases of student life" was a
greater asset as a candidate than his
opponents drawing support from "one
block of students."
"I believe the president should represent all sections of the campus," he
said.
Grant Livingstone, president of the
UBC branch of the Legion commented
that, "Politics has no real significance
in thi scampaign, certainly not is far
as I am concerned. The matter of
political affiliation i sso manifestly
irrelevant to this campaign that I can
only conclude that it has been promoted with a view to stirring up of
a false and misleading issue.
POLITICS OUT
"The real issue in this campaign are
the platforms, intentions, abilities, and
personalities of the candidates. It is
my feeling that a candidate should
run on the basis of a positive platform
of measures to the benefit of the student body,"
"I see no place where a president
could exercise his political philosophy," Cliff Greer told interviewers,
"nor would I like to see one created."
"I am running for President because
I believe that I can do much to encourage student activity in student
affairs."
Three candidates for theJpresidency
of the AMS voiced their opinions and
platforms   i.\   a   noon-hoyjr   rally
Brock Hall yesterday.
In advancing his reason^ why he felt
students should a>nct..^liff Greer as
president, Jin. Sutherland, his seconder,, stressejii^he fact that his candidate hadjfno intentions of making
extravagant promises. He maintained
that wha» the students wanted was "a
for a medical school,
CLUBSJ^EE-pED
eer stressed participation in club
Activities as his main program if
elected. "The club," he said, "is the
basic foundation of our democratic
system. He Stressed the fact that
the president oi] the AMS should confine himself to providing an effective
club system on the campus. He also
pledged his full support of the drive
fo ra medical school.
Ron Grantham, speaking on behalf
of Grant Livingstone, stressed Livingstone's past accomplishments before
and after entering the services, as a
student on the campus. If elected, he
claimed, Livingstone would ensure
"an effective and unified student organization."
PRESENT IMPORTANT
Livingstone said that the present
student body had an obligation to
fulfil to the students of the past.
He pledged himself to a platform of
activities to develop an "esprit de
corps" on the campus. His platform
included the investigation of a plan
to expand inter-varsity sports by establishing a private air transport service for teams across Canada.
He pledged also to support the National Federation of Canadian University students, and encourage a rehabilitation scheme of national scholarships. He also promised to investigate the possibilities of better transportations service to the university,
and to support fully the pre-medical
faculty in their drive for a medical
school.
COMMON SENSE
Bob Wilson, seconder for Bill McKay declared-that his candidate was
"forceful, but tempered with common
sense." He stressed McKay's past
works, and claimed that McKay's action in "pulling the USC out of its
morass of indecision" showed his qualities as an efficient organizer. He also
stressed McKay's "personal integrity"
in student affairs.
McKay declared that his plans for
the establishment of an underground
garage under the Mall, and the extension of the CPR to the campus were
no more ridiculous than some of the
plans of his opponents, who depended
on a "mythical source of revenue" to
carry out those plans.
NO INTEREST
He regretted that his opponents saw
fit to draw a line between non-veterans
and veterans, and promised to hold a
plebiscite "to find out to what extent
the students are supporting the Gym
Drive."
McKay declared that although he
had previously been attacked personally by The Ubyssey, he would, if
elected, continue to insure that students are informed on vital issues,
even if again subject to "the brutal
pen of The Ubyssey."
JUNIOR-SENIOR PROM NEARS
Revived after an absence from the social calendar during
war years, the Junior-Senior Prom is to be held Monday February 10 at the Commodore.
Committee members in charge promise a "wonderful party
for all students" and have planned a theme based on "Purple
Orchids and Blue Champagne". This, they say, is definitely a
"glamourous setting for campus beauty."
Tickets are on sale in the AMS office at two dollars a
couple for junior and senior students; others will have to pay
three dollars a couple. Dress is strictly informal.
Jack Emerson will be on hand to-day for the gigantic pep-
meet in the auditorium. Arts Undergraduate members say that
this will be the best pep-meet this year.
Hope runs high that the six beautiful British models who
are in town may appear at the Pepmeet

Each faculty must provide one member of the eyecutive and two other
faculty members who will be present

election day.
Joy Donegani, Chairman of the
Elections Committee urges "All students must make a point of taking
advantage of their AMS privileges and

best candidate will win. I also hope
the students will take care when marking the ballots and will nil them in
correctly. Remember it is by the preferential system."
Voters face a situation tomorrow believed to be unprecedented in Alma
Mater Society elections history. They
will be electing a president after a
treasurer has already been chosen by
acclamation. That treasurer-elect, Bob
Harwood, has previously come out
publicly in favor of presidential candidate Grant Livingstone. In announcing his candidacy for treasurer on
January 16, Harwood stated: "In my
opinion, the administration of student
ayairs, when so many students are
older than in normal years, can be
better handled by Grant Livingstone."
Panton Quits Association
Over Med School Protest
Dr. K. D. Panton has resigned his post as chairman of the
medical education committee of the B. C. Medical Association.
His resignation was in protest against prolonged delay iri the
establishment of a medical school.
Dr. Panton says that UBC authori-<f>
ties have  delayed  the starting of a
school by insisting it should be built
on the campus. Dr. Panton and experts
from U. S. and Canada agree that it
would be far more beneficial to all
concerned if the school were set up
in co-operation with the Vancouver
General Hospital.
DOUBLE PURPOSE
"The city is fajced with a dire need
for additional hospital accomodation
and with the allocation of the medical
school to the hospital two major problems   would   be  solved,"
X-Ray Campaign
Off At Fast Run
Thirty - five hundred appointments
for the tuberculosis chest X-Ray were
made befoiv the clinic opened yesterday morning and hundreds more
were being made during the morning
according to officials at the Health
S-ervice hut.
X-Rays are being taken at the rate
of 100 an hour and appointment sheets
ere completely filled for the first
three days of the clinic which will
remain at the university for four
weeks.
Of the aproximate 10,000 people
at the university, including 8960 students, 280 faculty and 1000 staff, 3500
or approximately one third have
made appointments for their X-Rays.
Appointments may be made for the
next four weeks at the Health Service
hut behind the auditorium buildings.J
The provincial government is interested in the establishment of a medical
school and will finance such a school
but it balks at the annual expense.
The operation of a medical school on
the campus would amount to approximately $500,000 eaich year. Dr. Panton
feels it is logical that the province
should assist in the addition to the
General Hospital on the understanding
that a sufficient number of beds be
under the control of the medicaj.
faculty for teaching purposes.
NORMAL SCHOOL SITE
The present Normal School site is a
suggested location for the medical
school. This tract is owned by the
provincial government.
Says Dr. Panton, in a letter printed,
in the News Herald, Monday, "Clinical
training can be arranged, until such
time as the new hospital construction
hi completed, at the city hospitals and
Shaughnessy."
CLINIC  NECESSARY
Most practicing physicians in the city
were taught under these conditions.
There is abundant opportunity for
clinical work because the clinics for
tuberculosis, veneral disease and other
infectious diseases are located in the
General Hospital. It is felt by experts
on the subject that it is far more
essential that the medical school bej
located in access to these clinics rathe?
than on the campus.

FOR THE RECORD
Though tomorrow's election for next year's *
president of the Alma Mater Society is not
of the life-or-death character given to it by
some of the candidates and their supporters,
it is still of sufficient importance to warrant a
record attendance at the polls.
It is difficult to say whether or not the
outcome of the voting will be more important
than it was last year, or whether it will be
more important than it will be next year.
It is easy to say that any time a society of
more than eight thousand members elects a
president to lead an executive that will be
responsible for more than one hundred
thousand dollars in society fees, then it is
time to take the matter very seriously. And,
let it be said again, that is the kind of election
which UBC students face tomorrow.
In fairness to the average student on-the-
campus, be that student male or female, veteran, freshman or senior, as well as to the
person elected, tomorrow's decision should be
made by the majority of the eligible voters.
It is not only right morally, but also efficient
practically, that a president of the Alma Mater
Society should be able to feel that he is the
choice of a majority of the student body, not
just the victor chosen by the minority of.the
students who bothered to >oieV Through no
fault of their own, AMS presides in recent
years have not known just where Hfrey stood
in the estimation of the entire Vstudent-
population.
This year, the indications are favurftble for
an even greater vote than was reoorde*^jast
year, when even the record total still did ru
account for a majority of possible voters. For
several reasons, interest is keen in tomorrow's
election. And, let it be modestly noted, the
Elections Committee have follo/wed a suggestion of The Ubyssey in setting up polling
places by faculty, making it much easier for
everybody to translate his interest into action.
The Ubyssey sincerely hopes that it will be
able to announce in Thursday's paper that the
number of people voting in the AMS presidential contest was the greatest in UBC history.
To every voter, the paper has one last word
of advice, given in the interest of better student
government—Let your vote be your own decision. Do not let that decision be influenced
by high-pressure tactics or by last minute
stunts or smears. Let it be influenced only by
your own honest estimate of the capabilities
of the three candidates.
May the most able man win.
Man Of Distinction
By DAVID WILLIAMS
When contemplating the likelihood of permanent peace,
people seem constantly to worry about Russia. While granting
that Russia's actions sometimes make one doubt whether her
intentions are honorable, I'd like to point out, in this brief article,
that we had better start to realize that if the conduct of Russia
occasionally causes alarm, the conduct also of the United States
sometimes shows dangerous unconcern for peace.
CONTRADICTIONS
Letters   loTfie Editor
Week-end Review And Preview
9 By LEE GIDNEY
First of all this week I heard a
Russian play a cello. His name was
Gregor PiaUgovski. His playing could
perhaps be described, the sauve rich
tones he made the cello produce mentioned, his technical virtuosity praised.
But it doesn't mean anything. This is
something for your ears to hear, and
then your brain can accept it. There
are no words.
But- later on in the week I read a
great many words about some people
in the world labelled Jews. Perhaps
in the last few years since the war
your sympathies have been aroused
by the inhumanity of the Nazi concentration camps. Perhaps, even, you
were aware of the business before the
war, and felt some indignation.
For myself I first became aware
of this label attaching to some people
when I was very young and read
Scott's "Ivanhoe." It was like a blow
against my own mouth. Rebecca was
beautiful, and consequently part of
the idea of beauty which belonged to
me, and consequently part of me. Her
father was old, and age had dignity
and was also part of my imagined
self.
Before this my picture of the world
had been unconsciously built on the
principle that there were rules which
you accepted, and if you broke the
rules you were punished, but if you
played according to the rules you
were safe. i
But here were people who couldn't
be safe. They weren't punished because they broke the rules, but because they wore a label making them
Iree game for all.
Scott's characters were only half-
figures subject to the deficiency of
his art, but later I met the magnificent "Merchant of Venice," and
wanted not to be Portia saying calm
things about the quality of mercy being not strained when obviously it
was. I wanted to be Shylock saying
from my knowledge of him, my
knowledge of myself, in a voice
wrenched from my sense of violated
indignation: "Hath not a Jew eyes?
hath not a Jew hands, organs, dimensions, senses, affections, passions?
I" you prick us, do we not bleed? if
you tickle us do we not laugh? if you
poison us do we not die? and if you
are wrong, shall we not revenge?"
And then later again there was
Marlowe's "Jew of Malta" who enchanted me with his envenomed malignancy boasting that he went about
at night and poisoned wells and murdered Christians sleeping under bridges. This goaded reaction to injustice,
playing a game in which you had
agreed with the other side that all
rules were abrogated, this was my
own reaction.
Now this past week I have been
reading   Arthur   Koestler's   "Thiews
in the Night," and finding myself
surprised to be for a change approving of Mr. Koestler. His recent attacks
on Stalinist Russia have been so
impassioned as to leave his handling
even of a statistic molten and susp-sct.
But it seems that here, except for one
page, he ignores this gangrenous suspicion of his, and permits himself to
believe again in something, he is a
story-teller of ability, and an artist
or' some excellence.
Koestler's English Jew, Joseph, relishing the Arab and British labelled
people he nwets, and in revulsion
from them, as well as fully realizing
his own Jewish labelled fraternity,
relishing them and yet in constant
revulsion from their values which
are only sometimes his own, is a human being, is myself. I repeat: There
are no Jews, only everywhere people.
I was going to append to this: "1
am not a Jew," to rob this statement
of the stigma of special pleading, but
ir. the face of the above I cannot,
[ am all the jingling names sticking
like thrown mud to any person anywhere. I am a rich man in a few

Presidential Candidates' Platforms
American foreign policy is full of
contradictions. While trujnpeting
against Russian influence in Eastern
Europe, the United States asserts
that the war-conquered Pacific Islands are hers, and hers alone. The
absence of population doesn't alter
the principle involved. Deploring the
lack of Russian co-operation in Germany, she encourages MacArthur to
do in Japan virtually what he pleases.
The United States almost kow-tows to
General Franco, and only recently has
concerned herself over the dangerous
trend in the Argentine. She castigates Britain for the latter's conduct
in Greece, and at the same time brazenly interferes in China. The United
StcSto berates Russian military
strength, and continues to produce not
only attfhtt bombs but also planes
capable of caMfving them.
In short, the <\qduct of the U.S. is
largely based on an"H(nreasoning fear
of Socialism—mild or n\jjitant. It is
painful to have to listen wg American
leaders pontificating on the r»eed for
international harmony when\those
same leaders adopt a negativistic\»P-
proach to world problems.
TERRIFYING
The potentialities of her economic
influence are terrifying. The entire
world experienced the recent coal
strike. For the next generation most
of the world will be dependent upon
the support of American production,
and upon American support of functional international reconstruction
agencies. America avows verbal support—and   then   elects   a   Republican
Congress numbering in its ranks many
men whose only policy is to preserve
free enterprise at any cost, and
whose only ideal is to convince other
nations that American Democracy is
the triumph of our age.   At a time
when the rest of the world sees that
pioneering capitalism is moribund, the
American people return to government the party of normalcy.
es, I will con/cede that this time,
unlilftf 1920, the United States sits at
internalHiona! council tables, but unless
her action* display more imagination
and more awareness of the almost desperate desire >pf peoples outside her
boundaries for something better than
more "normalcy,'Vshe will surely cul-
vate, if not sow, th$ seeds of another
war.
with  malice aforethoitaht
By PETER REMNANT *•
If you have a
BAXTER ON couple of minutes,
SOCIALISM and the latest McLean's, just draw
over to the curb and thumb it through.
Somewhere around page fourteen you
will find Beverley Baxter in a pleasantly ruminative mood—bless his old
heart, he's coming home. Not that he
doesn't like it in England, mind you.
Life isn't too bad there, but—well, it's
this Socialism, -hat's what it is.
It conflicts with human nature—
trying to make a man cooperate when
by nature he's 'acquisitive, competitive, ambitious'. And if you doubt
that,   watch  an  old,  tired  cart horse
racing to prevent another passhfc it.
Or watch a geryhound after a here.
That's life for you—like a knot W
urchins scrabbling for pennies or
Liverpool docks. Grab, Beverley, grab1
quick. Look, there's another—don't
mind the mud. Quick man, fill your
pockets.   Life is so short.
But it isn't just the animals who
work by human nature—look at the
prospector following up the scent of
gold—like a boar after a sow. 'Men
will risk death in battle for an inch
of ribbon.' That does it—bianco my
web belt, boy—I'm out for the VC at
dawn.
This leads him up   count—a  bigger  house  than  the  one
RACE FOR
PRIZE
to the basic question—'can we learn
to run in the race
race for which there is no prize and
say that the running is all that matters?' In other words, can we live
our lives for the living, instead of for
the getting?
Well, can we? God help us if we
can't—the prize we're headed for isn't
worth running after. Better a slow
walk. But what is this prize that
Baxter is talking aout?   A bank ac-
next door—a marble headstone?
If this is as far as we've gone in
four thousand years of cumulative
development—that we can still be
measured with cab horses and greyhounds—that we still need the carrot
on the end of the stick for a prize-
maybe we'd better try another way
of life. Maybe we can learn to take
our eyes off the carrot long enough
to look at the country we're running
th rough.
This    takes    me t. cause.    Hegel—a  bit  of  a  dilettante

As president I would:
Seek opportunities to express the
desire of students generally for
the establishment of a Medical

to all Canadian youth.
Concern myself most actively
with encouraging tho clubs and
societies to provide opportunity for
all students to take part in their

students to associate themselves

Because of my present Council
duties I haven't campaigned as
actively as I contemplated. I could
make many promises, but some of
the promises now being made were
made last year and will probably
be made again next year. It is time
that students answered certain
questions which I feel will help
them vote wisely and impartially:
1. Do you want a president who
las participated in and represents
all sections of student life or do
you want one who is associated
with one group?
2. Have you had enough of the
"veteran" outlook and do you want
a president with a "University"
outlook?
,''. Do you want a president who
looks and acts like an average student, or do you want an older man
who does not?
■1. What value do you attach to
previous experience on Students'

These questions may harm me as

Dear Sir:
Allow me to congratulate Mr, Robert Docld for his great literary nvis-

in Saturday's issue of your paper.
Let me assure Mr. Dodd that I
would not even have missed the two
or three meetings I did if there had
been any evidence at those I did attend that anything would ever be
accomplished.
The report was signed by one person whom I had never seen at a
meeting. I had to look up the minutes
oi the council meeting at which we
were appointed in order to discover
if he was actually a member of the
committee.
If there were any proper records
kept of our so called "meeting" Mr.
Dodd would find that next to himself
and the chairman my attendance was
considerably more regular than the
remaining members of the committee.
Yours Truly,

! Dear Sir:
[ Al Capone died last week. His
nHme,  I  feel,  is sufficiently  notorious
' to merit the composition of a great
ode—in   the   lofty   manner,   say,   of
; Tennyson's "Ode on the Death of the
Duko of Wellington." The subject
matter, however—you know—gang
wars, gun molls, thirty overproof
booze,  bullet  proof  cars,  etc.,  would
i perhaps best lend itself to an irregular ode treatment. In hopes that
someone will tackle this thing seriously, I submit some lines to indicate
a few of the infinite possibilities of
tho theme.

Fourth year and graduate pre-meds
will be subjected to psychological ap
titude tests as the first result of the
pre-med   registration  held   last  November. The tests will begin Saturday.
The first group of students to be tested will be notified this week by letter
as to the exact time and place.   Due
to differences in timetables, the only
feasible time for the testing is Saturday afternoon.
"Some confusion has arisen again
as to the purpose of the survey.   It
is not connected with the possible establishment of a medical school here,
but is a service to assist the pre-
meds with their problems," according
to the psychology department.    The
conclusions will be based ,in part, on
the  tests,  but  chiefly  on  academic
standing because, with the acute overcrowding, the chief criteria of entrance
to medical schools is made on the
basis of academic record.
It is hoped that the response received in November will be continued

Stone Unturned7
By BOB DEVITO
UBC Pre-Meds, striving for success in their current drive
for a Medical school have left no stone unturned in their effort
' to acquaint the people of B.C. with the existing situation as
regards the feasibility, value, and need of a Medical school on
the campus.
Giving an outline of the campaign to date, Pat Fowler, Vice-
President of the Pre-medical Undergraduate Society, and form-
ulator of the drive, reported Friday that public response has
been "very encouraging" and that support of the proposed plan
has been promised by many "important and influential" persons.

PROVINCIAL INCOME FIGURES FOR IMMh
When the Faculty of Medicine materializes at the University
of B.C., the little known Department of Bacteriology and Preventive Medicine, tucked away on the top floor of the Science
Building will take on new light and importance. "Little known"
is perhaps not the best choice of words to describe this department to any of the Pre-med students, but to many others the
work carried on and its importance has not been realized.
Bacteriology is a major subject in^	
the curriculum of the student in medi-1
cine, and the fine reputation of the
University of British Columbia in tihis
field will not be unimportant when
new doctors are trained in our own
province.
As well as supplying training to
Pre-med students in previous years,
the department has also graduated
many who were able to make direct
use of their training as laboratory
technicians. Several graduates have received important positions in industrial
research and teaching appointments
in universities. Not the least important of the students who include Bacteriology in their courses are the
nurses preparing for Public Health
Work and Teaching in Nursing Training schools.
EARLY START
The Department of Bacteriology was
established in 1916-17, under the direction of Dr. F. F. Westbrook.
In 1935, Dr. C. E. Dolman, a graduate
in medicine, bacteriology and Public
Health, from the laboratories of Sir
Almoth  Wright  and  Sir  Alexander
Fleming at the University of London,
was appointed head of the Department.
In that year the title of the Department was changed to Bacteriology and
Preventive   Medicine.    Dr.   Dolman
retained his connection with the University of Toronto as a research member of the Connaught Laboratories and
was placed in charge of the Western
Division established at the University
of British Columbia as a center of
bacteriological research.
RESEARCH WORK
The present staff of the Department
besides Dr. Dolman, includes Dr. D.
C. B. Duff, Dr. L. E. Rant. Along with
the regular teaching assignments, each
of the staff members has been active
in research. Dr. Dolman has become
widely recognized as an authority in
the public health field. His chief investigations, both here and in Toronto
have been in connection with staphylococcal food poisoning.
Dr. Duff joined the department in
1929, and researches carried out since
that time have resulted in the acquisition of the degree of Doctor of Philosophy for the Department of Hygiene
and Preventive Medicine of the University of Toronto in 1930. Dr. Duff
has  also done work of  considerable
economic importance on furunculosis,
an  infectious disease of fresh water
fish.
For the past five years Dr, Duff has
conducted studies on the nutrition and
toxins of one of the gas gangrene organisms, Clostridium welehii. These
researches are at present supported by
a grant from the National Research
Council.
Also from Toronto, this time from
the Faculty of Medicine, is Dr. L. E.
Ranta, who came westward in 1939.
He is also a research assistant in Con-
naught Laboratories. During the war
Dr. Ranta worked on Asiatic cholera
and developed production methods for
a commercial vaccine.
TWOFOLD PURPOSE
This brief outline of the work of
the Department does not sufficiently
emphasize the valuable work of the
graduates  in  Bacteriology  and  Preventive Medicine. Many of these graduates have gone on eitiher in medical
or in commercial fields to occupy important positions. Thus the Department
of Bacteriology and Preventive Medicine can serve a dual purpose, to give
elementary bacteriological training to
the prospective student and to train
a student for a future in a related
industrial field.

Med Experts' Report
Advises School Now
In August of last year a group of consultant experts in the ,
field of Medical education was commissioned to investigate the
possibility of the establishment of a medical school on the UBC
campus.
The group was comprised of the following international
authorities: Dr. L. P. Chandler, Dean of Medicine, Stanford;
Dr.R. F. Farquharson, Faculty of Medicine, University of Toronto; Dr. E W. Goodpasture, Dean of Medicine, Vanderbilt; Dr.
A. Gregg, Director of Medicine, Rockefeller Foundation; Dr.
V. Johnson, American Medical Association; Dr. J. J. Ower, Dean
of Medicine, University of Alberta; Dr. H. G. Weiskotten, Dean
of Medicine, Syracuse.
The advisory report of the commission was submitted ia
November of last year.  Published below is a brief condensation.
*   *   *
British Columbia needs a Faculty of Medicine to stimulate
medical services in the Province, to train young men and women
best qualfied for medical careers, and to form the nucleus for a
medical centre.   In order to achieve these objectives, the Faculty of Mdicine must be of superior quality, and possess its own
teaching hospital of about 500 beds, adjacent to the medical
school buildings.  Preferably it should be so located that mutual
benefit may accrue from the closest possible contact with existing Faculties of the University and with Provincial Public
Health Services; but construction should not be commenced
until funds for the establishment and maintenance of a Faculty
of Medicine of adequate standard have been assured.
The minimum capital expenditure for the Faculty of Medicine is estimated at $2,000,000 for medical school buildings, and
$4,000,000 for a teaching hospital. Its minimum annual budget
is recommended at $400,000, exclusive of the operating costs of
the hospital. It is requisite that the university administration
control the Faculty of Medicine and the professional services of
the teaching hospital.
into more direct problems.
ZOOLOGY
The main concern of the Depatrment
of Zoology is the study and research
of animals, bird and fish life of the
Province. However, certain aspects of
this study directly concerns our own
welfare.
Rats, which live in or near the garbage dumps of our big cities, are of
little worry to the zoologist but theyl
carry parasites which are often dangerous. These parasites are taken from
various rats and the zoologist sends
them to the Dominion Government
Laboratory at Kamloops where they
are thoroughly  examined. Thus, an
accurate picture of the prevalence of
disease carriers on rodents is known,
along with their distribution.
Under Professor G. J. Spencer at
UBC, lice—the carriers of Typhus and
Trench Fever — are carefully studied.
BIOLOGY
Under the Department of Biology,
certain researches along physiological
lines have been conducted under
guidance    of Dr. J. Allardyce.
As in most research of this nature,
the actual experiments are performed
on suitable animals, usually rats. They
have studied the effects of light of
different wave lengths on the fertility
Meds Recollect
Autumn Mixer
Over two hundred nurses, "pre-meds
and guests took time off from worries
about impending Christmas exams at
their annual fall mixer held November
28 in Brock Hall.
Music at the mixer was supplied by
Frank Nightingale and his orchestra,
and entertainment was provided by
Pre-meds themselves in an impromptu program of songs and yells, including Pat Fowler's "UBC Fight Song,"
"Java Jive" by the "Sink Spots."

BOTANY
Professor J. Davidson of the Department of Botany has been keenly concerned with the growing and testing
of medicinal and drug plants in B.C.
Many of these medical plants grown
in B.C. yield a greater poundage per
acre than those grown elsewhere because of the longer growing season
and the better climatic conditions.
Among other B.C. grown plants are
Hyoscyamus-Herbane, used as a drug;
Digitalis—as a stimulant it has a
beneficial effect on the heart when
used in small doses; Bella donna—atropine, checks various secretions in
the body, and produces marked dilation of the pupil of the eye.
However, cost prohibits the collecting and sending to the East many B.C.
plants even though our products are
superior.
CHEMISTRY
Another of the basic science departments, Chemistry, has made several
contributions.
One of the more interesting pieces
of research was that undertaken by
Dr. R. Clark, Dr. R. E. McKechnie,
Jr.  and  Miss  I.  Corbould.  In  cases
where it is impossible to feed patients
by mouth following an operation, the
practice was to feed them a glucose
solution intravenously. Unfortunately,
the patients lost weight on this "diet."
The three  people mentioned above,
experimenting with rabbits found that
by  hydrolysing  the proteing casein
found in mik into amino acids and injecting this intravenously, the patients
went a month without losing weight,
thus aiding their chance of recovery.
J. Pyle studied the effect of physiologically important material of kidney phosphatase. This is of importance
in bonet building.
Another project was the acceleration
of enzymes to find activators to speed
the process of digestion.
This, by no means includes the
other contributions by these and other
departments. However, it does show
that these researches icould be carried
to a higher degree of achievement if
carried on in conjunction with a Fac
ulty of Medicine.
Having been an ardent believer and follower of Kilroy, 1
sat down the other night and tried to figure out just where this
much respected gent hasn't been. Walls, desks and practically
everything are covered with the immortal phrase, "Kilroy was
here."
It wasn't an easy job thinking where this much publicized
guy has not been, but at last the answer dawned upon me.   Of
course, he has never been to the Medical School at UBC.
It's too bad there was not or is not a Miss Kilroy because
then she too could have been everywhere, including the Veterinary College where most of the Pre-medical students finally
ended after giving up all hope of ever getting into a real, honest-
to-goodness medical school.
One must not forget the other highly paid jobs which a
pre-med student is prepared for. Jobs like Inspector of Sanitation, Pan-Handler—Grade I, and other highly incented jobs
really fit into the Pre-meds field.
Tumefaction and Borborygmus has reached a high state
among the pre-meds with Paraplegia running a close second.
Chief cause, as outlined by the Varsity Health Service office is
from "Erythrocytopoietic Tissue disturbances." "This," Pat
Fowler explains after consulting PUS prexy Bob Wilson, "is
entirely due to the Ethmoturbinals and possibly the Golgi-
Mazzoni Corpuscles which have been acting up lately owing to
the uncertainty of the Medical School.
Sciencemen, who are slightly doubtful of these simple
medical terms, will be pleased to learn that they mean "dying
of old age". Something that never happens to Engineers, according to an independent survey of Doctors who do nothing
but smoke.
"Are you troubled with getting out of bed at nights? Do
you win and influence the* wrong people? Does your vital
digestive juice flow at the rate of three pints daily? If so, rush
over to the Health Service Office where a special shipment of
"Uncle Dodds purple and green pills in the yellow box" have
arrived. They are guaranteed by the Bacteriologists, the Zoologists and the Herbalists who have offices conveniently located
near the Varsity Comfort Stations.
Recent advances from "mother natures laboratories" show
that the Pre-med students' plight is far from lost. Only the other
day, a brand new piece of comfort station equipment was found
on the campus and beside it was placed the sign, "Kilroy won't
miss this."
It is presumed that this will be the nucleus for the new
medical school building as everything must start from the bottom and this fits it exactly.
Beezy, noted campus fixture, was seen running around the
campus last Saturday morning with a pick and shovel plus one
snow plough. Upon questioning it was learned that he was
looking for a place to turn the first sod, but after persistant
talks from each member of the PUS executive, he was finally
convinced that next month would be time enough for the start.
"After all Beezy," it was explained, "you must look after
your foundation.'"    After this explanation, Beezy was seen
catching the uncrowded Varsity Bus on his way down to the
"Lovee"  company  to  see   if  any  suitable  foundations  were
available.

BOB GARDNER SETS
STUDENT EXAMPLE
Bob Wilson, President of the Pre-medical Undergraduate
Society, stated last week-end that if all Pre-meds were to follow
the example of Bob Gardner, UBC would be certain of having a
Medical Faculty.
Gardner, Pre-med hailing from Na-<s>
naimo, became rather peeved with the |
situation existing re Medical Schools,
and after the emergency meeting held
January 22 by the PUS decided that
possibly something could be done.
That week-end he went home for two
busy days of fiery campaigning.
TRIP PROFITABLE
Before he had returned to the mainland and university, he had spoken
to M.L.A.'s, Doctors, Service Clubs,
and influential citizens of Nanaimo,
thoroughly arousing that city, and
gaining very worthwhile support for
the case of the Medical Faculty proposed.  After his arrival in Vancouver,
after he had done more than his share,
Bob settled down to the task of writing 18 letters inthree days to people
he had been unable to see personally.
FOWLER FOLLOWS UP
It is almost solely due to his efforts
all undertaken on his own initiative,
that Nanaimo is so strongly behind the
UBC Pre-meds in their cause. It is
due to his efforts that the PUS was
asked to send a speaker to the Nanaimo Board of Trade meeting last Thursday, an invitation which Pat Fowler*
filled.

One of the duties of any responsible
government is to provide the people
it represents with  adequate medical
protection.   To do this in British Columbia, it is  felt  in many  quarters
that the government should establish
a Medical School within the province,
preferably at the University of British
Columbia at Vancouver.   Many people
foresee the day of compulsory Health
Insurance,  coupled with state medicine, which will mean definitely that
more doctors will be required within
tho   province.    An   editorial   in   tho
Vancouver Daily Province, dated 10th
January, 1947, states that:
"Doctoi-s are needed now and will
be required in growing numbers in
the years to come as health insurance,
school,   medical   and   welfare   work
expand,"
Further expansion will also be required to cope with the growing pop-
ulation of the province.   These, very
briefly, could be termed some of the
social aspects of the problem.
HEALTH NEEDED
From  a psychological viewpoint it
can be said that good health in the
community  makes for happier-  individuals within it.   These being happier,  then  the  whole   community  is
happier and a bettor place in which
to live.   There would also be less fear
of burdensome doctors' fees and hospital bills.  H state medicine is brought
into effect, then there will be a feeling of security for all the members
of' the   community.    State  medicine
should, and probably will emphasize
the  perventlon  of  sickness thus reducing   the  likelihood   of   epidemics,
again tending to reduce fear.
If a auffcient number of new doctors
start   their  practices   in  British  Co-
, lumbia the highest standards of the
profession   can   then   be   maintained.
New men and women will bring new
ideas and comparatively youthful enthusiasm  to  the   work.    Meanwhile,
both the older and the younger doctors will have more time in which
to lead their own private lives, get
the   proper   recreation   which   every
doctor  requires,   and  they will  also
have time for the constant study which
must be done in order to keep abreast
of new developments.
As an aside, it might be stated that
i1: is hoped that if state medicine is
brought into effect, there will then be
more opportunity for practising doctors to take time out now and again
for  refresher  courses and for  study ]
of new developments.   In order to get
this sufficient number of new doctors
in this province a medical school at
the   University   of   British  Columbia
is required.   Under the scheme; out-
lined)\ above  it  is  believed  that  the
life JI the doctor himself should be
el*
/
a happier one.   That will make him
more efficient in his profession and ,
should be reflected in a happier life
for   the   individuals  under his  care.
A happier, healthier British Solumbia
would  tend  to  be  more  prosperous
and everyone would then have more
opportunity to enjoy the better and
finer tilings of life.
PEOPLE'S VIEW
Those are the social and psycholo-
| gical aspects from the point of view
of the people of the province as a
whole, and from the point of view of
its doctors.   There is also the problem   of  the   Pre-medical  student   at
present studying at the university, and
of those students in high school and
grade school who have aspirations of
becoming    doctors.     Being   a   Pre-
medical student  at  present studying
at  the  university,   it  is  difficult for
the writer to get a proper sense of
proportion to his problem as it relates
to the province as a whole.   One more
doctor here or there does not seem
very important, naturally.   But there
are over five hundred of us and that
does   seem  to   constitute  a  problem
which should be recognized at least.
If it is excusable, I shall revert to
the first pei'son for the sake of illustration.    I would rationalize- this by
claiming that my problem is typical
of the five hundred other students in
the same position.   The crux of it can
be summed up in the one question:
Am I doing the right thing by pursuing my Pre-medical course in the faint
hope of getting into a medical school
elsewhere, or am I wasting my time
which  might   be  better   occupied   in
business outside the university, where
I might be gaining expeirence which
would   count   towards   my   advancement?
A medical school in British Columbia
would go a long way towards answer
ing   that  question   one   way   or  the
other for a great many of us.   As it
stands today, many of us are going
to  have  to  abandon our  aspirations
entirely and that constitutes another
big  problem.    There seems  to be  a
prevalent attitude of 'all or nothing',
although some may be able to find
happiness in an allied field.    Even a
study af psychology has failed to provide me with an adequate answer. As
has been said before, this problem is
not that of just one individual who
does not matter  a great deal to the
province,  but  rather the  problem  of
over five hundred students at present
studying at the University.
ULTIMATE WORTH
The remaining problem is for the
people of the province to decide whether the school is worth $2,000,000 outlay, with an additional annual budget
of $400,000 for its operation. A $4,000,-
000,  500-bed  hospital  is needed now
Whether or not the faculty is established. Surely the best plan would b<
to build the hospital on the campu,
where it could fulfill a two-fold pur
pose.
I have tried to show that the facult;
ij  an absolute necessity  from socis
and    psychological    viewpoints,    an
should be established as a public ur
dertaking.    It not  only would  mak
for  greater happiness and prosperitl
in Birtish Columbia but  also woui
make a big  contribution to freedol
from fear.    It would also become

more of our young men and worn*
would   be  given   the   opportunity

I think this should show iconelusi-i

Radcliffe College of Cambrlc|se,
Massachusetts, has announced a
limited number of fellowships, covering tuition fee in whole or in part,
for the year 1947-48.
This ten months' training program
provides a basic training for young
women intending to work in personnel departments, as well as for those
who seek positions in other branches
of business administration.
The program includes about seven
months of class instruction given by
members of the Faculty of the

Thursday at 12:30 in the auditorium,
announced treasurer Don McRae yesterday.
"The fact that this is to be the
largest graduating class in UBC's
history—possibly 1000—will necessitate some new arrangement at Convocation," McRae aded.
Dr. O. J. Todd, Head of the Department of Classics, will represent the
faculty at the meeting.
Other items of business at the
meeting will include the election of
an executive to make arrangements
for the annual grad functions, and a
discussion of the nature of these

International Student Service will
commence a campaign on the campus
for $8,000 during the last three weeks
of February according to Philip Evans,
Sophomore member of Student Council and head of the ISS committee at
UBC.
Robin Fair, a member of the Canadian
delegation to last summer's international ISS conference in Cambridge
is managing the publicity, assited by
Sue Young. "However," said Evans,
"the committee is very small as yet,
and we would welcome anybody who
would be willing to assist in the organization of this campaign. Certain
campus groups have already been
asked to participate and I would like
to urge their delegates to be present
at the committee meeting on Thursday.
The committee will meet at 12:30
p.m. Thursday in Arts 104.
The International Student Service
is at present, active in fields of relief,
international education, research and
information, and works with students
and professors throughout the thirty-
one member nations to accomplish
these ends. The organization is politically neutral and religiously impartial, embracing members of all
beliefs  and  nationalities.
ISS was born of the first European
Student Relief committee which was
created in 1920 by the Word's Student
Christian Federation, and became an
autonomous organization in 1926. In
1940, ISS, WSCF, and Pax Romana together set up World Student Relief,
the administration of which was entrusted to ISS.
ISS has no formal membership beyond its asembly and staff. It is
built upon three groups of associates:
Corresponding Members, Co-operation
National Committees, and Friends of
ISS. The latter is made up of universities and others who are eager to
support and promote ISS.

Work Situation
Still Unsettled
The story which appeared in a
downtown paper last week stating
that there are only 2000 jobs for 4000
University of British Columbia students and that engineers would be
given employment preferance is
"quite erroneous" said Mr, J. F. McLean of the University Employment
Bureau today,
"It is too early to tell yet how many
jobs there will be for the students,"
stated Mr. McLean.
"Our object is to place students in
jobs where they will gain experience
and form contacts with the employer
they will ultimately work with," he
said.
N?turally, he continued, engineering
students will get preference for en-
ginering jobs, commerce students will
i?o t preference for commerce jobs,
:nd so on.

The great difficulty is finding jobs

do so.
North Van Players
Organize Group
University students residing in
North Vancouver will have the opportunity to join a theatrical group
in that municipality. This group will
be known as the Community Players
of North Vancouver, and will be under the experienced guidance of
Jemes K. Stansfeld and presidency of
Mrs. Doris Drost.
The main production will be the
three-tact play, "Kiss and Tell," but
besides this, "workshop" plays will be
performed to provide experience for
all persons interested.
Casting will commence the Monday
and Thursday sessions which will
be held in the North Vancouver
High School auditorium and anyone
interested is invited to attend. Men
especially  are  needed.
one of the planks of the platform upon which Don McRae was
elected to the position last year.
 —— €>   "At present," ho said, "there is no
apparent need for an office manager,
the dutiees of such an office being
adequately fulfilled by the present
office staff in co-operation with the
r resident and treasurer of the AMS.
SUBJECT TO NEED
"Should the need arise at some
future date, the entire question would
be re-opened. A man carefully chosen;
his perogatives defined in such a manner to insure that no loss in student
autonomy would be incurred through
his employment."
Harwood also expressed the fear
that such a position would be apt to
expand from the administration field
of the AMS and tend to interfere with
policies established by the Student
Council.
MCRAE ADAMANT
McRae, however, still stands firm
by his idea. "The girls have carried on
(during the past year) very well witn
Miss Shepherd acting in that capacity."
he said. "The actual delegation of
the duties has developed during the
year.
"The principal I have worked for
will be advocated in my final report,"
he concluded.
UBC Grad Wins
Gov't Portfolio
A former University of British Columbia graduate and Canadian Ambassador to Mexico, Hugh L. Keenleyside has been appointed Deputy
Minister of Mines and Resources.
This unique move of transferring
a top carreer diplomat into civil service job was prompted by increasing
Canadian interest in Mr. Keenelyside's
hobby, the Arctic.
Born in Toronto, Mr. Keenleyside
taught history at UBC and in the US,
worked in the Canadian Legation,
Tokyo; became Assistant Under, Secretary of State; was Acting chairman
of the US Canadian Joint Board and
High Commisioner to Newfoundland,
before his appointment as Ambassador to Mexico in 1945.
At an investiture at UBC in October, 1945, Mr. Keenleyside was a-
warded an honorary LLD degree.

MOLESTING NEWSPAPERS
BECOMES McKAY HABIT
The Ubyssey is not the only paper
to receive a blast during the past
week from Bill McKay, chairman of
the Undergraduate Societies Committee and of the Discipline Committee,
and AMS presidential candidate. Also charged were two downtown dailies, with the charge against one of
them withdrawn several clays later.
In a letter to one daily, McKay
accused one of tl» paper's downtown
correspondens of "wilful misrepresentation" and "deliberate distortion"
in connection with a story about a
Discipline Committee trial against
student athletes charged with playing
for non-UBC teams.
After being visited by the correspondent in question, McKay sent a
second letter to his paper, in which
he said: "I realize now that I was
carried away unduly by my strong
feelings about this subject, and consequently made accusations which i
shouldn't have made—I hasten to
v.-ii.'.drnw those statements and apol-
igbc for the fact that they wore ever
irade."
The chief complaint made in the
i;ri":inal Idler was that the story
k .d implied that McKay had aclvd
,-!'- both jud;;e and jury in the trial.
Tin- Discipline Committee chairman
i ailed   such  implication  "an   insult  to
the intelligence of my fellow students."
He went on to inform one of the
papers that "The trials of the Discipline Committee have been opened
to the press, in accordance with the
principle of freedom of speech. However, if you are going to give such
misleading reports of What occurs, I
feel it necessary in the interests of the
student body to use the authority
vested in me and exclude the press
from future trials."
In the subsequent apology McKay
concluded: "That there was misrepresentation I still maintain, but realize now that it was not deliberate-
lean assure you that this incident has
taught me a valuable lesson and I
entreat you to consider the whole
affair a folly of inexperience."

Firemen Quells
Blaze, Less Hat
While answering a call from the
Farm Cottages last Thursday, misfortune struck the University Fire
Department when a Arc helmet
was blown from the truck at the
corner of the Mall and University
Boulevard.
The men expected to find die
helmet on the same spat when they
returned so they did not bother to
stop. On the way back, however,
it was nowhere to be seen and a
fireman is now minus his helmet.
An appeal has been sent out by
the department to anyone finding
the lost piece of equipment, asking
them to return it to the office of
the fire chief on the West Mall.
Few students realise that the slightly
bald gentleman who takes their pulse
and listens to their breathing at the
Health Hut is a football man at heart.
A closer look at the large athletic
frame of the "Doc", though and the
possibility is only too apparent, and
it's not just a possibility.
Dr. J. H. W. Hutchinson, B.A., M.D.,
besides being UBC's first fulltime doctor, came to the campus last October
as assistant coach to the Thunderbirds
and club surgeon. His appointment
came from the Metropolitan Health
Bureau under Dr. J. Kitching.
HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL
Dr. Hutchinson's football career began in high school in Port Arthur
and ever since it has vied with his
medical training which has been carried through nine years by scholarships. From Port Arthur he went to
McMaster U to take a B.A. in honors
biology. From there he went to the
University of Manitoba where he
achieved an M.D.
While in Winnipeg "Doc" played
with the Blue Bombers, the same team
tliat Greg Kabat, the Thunderbird
coach starred with, and in 1941 he
came west with that team to play the
Grizzlies. Dtiring this period he also
included basketball and hockey in
his sports curriculum but he admits
that football is his primary passion.
SWEENEY'S PUBLICITY
During his coast visit he must have
fallen prey to Mr. Sweeney's publicity for he interned at the Vancouver
General  Hospital,  where he  became
resident doctor in orthopaedic surgery, or, in other words a "bone
specialist." He also held the same
position at the Crippled Children's
Hospital.
In 1943, the Army claimed his talents, and till May, '46 he served
with the RCAMC.
After his discharge he became resident in neuro-surgery at Shaughnessy
Hospital and since his appointment to
UBC he has continued with this postgraduate course.
Football and medicine are not his
only interests though. While "Doc" is
busy on the campus the home fires in
a Westbrook camp suite are kept alight
by a wife and a twenty-month-old
daughter with "definite prospects of
being a fullback,"
IFC ARRANGES

Of coff, of coff, it can if you visit the

When asked why they hadn't made
an appointment, or if they had, why
they hadn't kept it, various answers
were given by the students. "I'm
afraid of the awful truth," 'I have a
cold, so they might give me a bad
report." However, most students say
that they'll get around to it eventually.
The trouble is, at that rate there
will be a great rush at the end of
February. Everyone wil be there at

population which is a main factor in
the spread of tuberculosis.

CONVERSATION WITH LUKE
A short conversation with Graduate Manager Luke Moyls
yesterday brought some interesting facts to light concerning
the plans of the new Memorial Gymnasium that we hope will
be ready for action not too long from now. Now that the
campaign is momentarily over as far as the actual canvassing
is concerned, the moguls are considering the type of structure
that should eventually be built and just how much of that can
be constructed with the funds on hand.
It seems that from what Luke could gather from the meetings he has attended, the present plans are for the construction
of 3000 permanent seats around the large main floor of the gym,
There are also to be temporary bleachers which will seat another
3000 people. That brings the total seating capacity to a great big
6000 fans.
THE SOUTH HAS ITS TROUBLE
Knowing full well the criticism that is likely to come from
comparing UBC to a southern College, I want to let you read a
piece clipped from the Oregonian, the daily publication from
Portland, Oregon. The sheet has one of the best sport sections
(not a page, a section!) that we have seen. This was taken from
a piece written by Gregory Rice, sports editor of the sheet in
his column, "Greg's Gossip".
"University of Washington Daily hints that even with the
new enlarged 14,000 capacity of Washington's combination field-
house-basketball pavillion, it won't be long before there won't
be seats enough for all students spectators, let alone general
public. At Oregon State only 150 seats are sold to the public
and then the students have alternate in games they can attend.
At Oregon, the public gets seats not filled by students by 7:30.
And at Washington state and Idaho, only nine miles apart,
students of one school can't attend games their teams play at
the other because of lack of seats."
WE OUGHT (TO DO A JOB
So that's the situation in the States kiddies. As someone
pointed out recently, UBC is the only University in the Province.
Is this not just one more reason why we should have an adequate
seating capacity?
Far be it from us to know just how many we're going to
seat in the new gym in the future, but since its is going to a bit
of a masterpiece, something that will always be looked to with
pride and a certain amount of reverence, let's make it worthy
of our hopes.
In short, let's do the job right. If it's at all possible, let's put
in enough seats so that there will be lots of room for the
Vancouver fans as well as the sports-minded students to take
in a contest. Sport is going "big time" on the campus. Let's
try to keep it there where it belongs.

Fijis Splash To Second Place
In Gala Intramural Tournament
By CHICK TURNER
Picking up valuable points in every event, the effffervescent
Jokers proved themselves amphibious Saturday night, as they
maintained their supremacy on the swim lanes, and splashed
to their second straight victory in the Annual Intramurral Swim
Gala. An enthusiastic crowd of 300 fans braved the inclement
weather and packed the galleries to witness the well-balanced
Jokermen rack up 27 points, a total that doubled that of their
nearest rivals, the spirited Phi Gamma Deltas, who garnered
A balanced team payed off for the
Blue and Gold clowns. Both relay
events—the 150 yard medley and the
SLALOM DAREDEVIL—A skier zig-zags through the breath-taking slalom race, a contest
notorious for its tricky turns and rocket-like speed. Such a gruelling course has become "all
in a day's work" for the UBC skiers who travel to Revelstoke this week for the western Canadian
ski championships, which will be the second tournament for the Varsity plankmen this season.
Banff was the scene of the first contest when the Blue and Gold skiers came out on top to win the
international crown for inter-collegiate skiing.
PLANKMEN BOUND TO INTERIOR
FOR WESTERN SKI TOURNAMENT
By JACK LEGGATT
Revelstoke is calling the UBC ski team again, but this time its not for training purposes
as it was at Christmas. The occasion is the western Canadian ski championships which will be
held Thursday through to Sunday and will feature slalom, cross-country, downhill and jumping.
Under the ever-helpful guidance of Coach Peter Vajda, the team, composed of Arnie
Teasdale, John Frazee, Doug Fraser, Don Anderson, Harry Smith, Gerry Reynolds, Gerry Lockhart, Ron Bruce and Dan Fernside, plans to enter several men in the four way events and the
balance in the downhill and slalom combined.

Reg Clarkson Wins Title
As Sportsman Of The Year
Reg Clarkson, "the all-round" Vancouver sportsman and UBC graduate
of 1946 has stepped back into the
headlines with Saturday's announcement that he has been voted sportsman of the year in the Vancouver
Now Herald poll.
Star centrefielder of the Vancouver
Capilanos, able performor on the
Vancouver Hornets professional basketball club and a top athlete while
at UBC, Reggie vu.s the second successive ex-UBC man to be recognized
for his outstanding ability and sportsmanship. Last year Sandy Robertson
received the award.
While at University he played football, ice hockey, soccer, and basketball. In the spring of 1945 he led
the Thunderbirds on a to two razzle-
dazzle Hardy Cup triumphs over University of Albert team.
He played Inside for the Varsity
soccer team and did two seasons of
birds.
Although he is signed up with professional teams in baseball and basketball, his future is in another profession—dentistry.
Last year he worked himself into
centrefield position with the Capilan-
or, and at the end of the season he
had cleared the fence with 14 homers,
swiped 15 bases and his batting average was second only to Ray Orteig.
A Brooklyn Dodger scout took sufficient interest in him to give him a
contract with one of their farm clubs,
in Fort Worth, Texas.
Before jumping into the spotlight
at UBC, he spent a year at Vancouver
College and made himself famous
around town by making an 85-yard
run to touchdown that gave the College lads a victory over their traditional rivals CVDea College of Seattle.
He also takes a turn at golf, la
ary, will be competiing in a field
which boasts some of the best jumpers
in Western Canada. Another UBC
jumping star is Arnie Teasrale, who
placed wel up in the winning circle
at the Fejeld jumping tourney at
Baker several weeks ago.
In the downhill and slalom events,
the Varsity lads should really shine.
What with 10 days training on the
Revelstoke downhill course, and a
four day tournament at Banff two
weeks ago where they won the Intercollegiate ski tournament, the team
is in excellent shape.
DOWNHILL LENGTHY
"Of course, you never know what
is going to happen on the Revelstoke
downhill," remarked the Coach Peter
Vajda, "as it is nearly twice as long
as any course the majority of skiers
have been practising on".
In the slalom event, a win depends
upon the luck of drawing an early
number. With the entry list nearing
100 mark, chances of the later competitors getting down without too
much trouble are pretty slim. However, with the excellent showing the
Varsity lods put in in the recent
tournaments, it is hoped that they
will be drowing early numbers in the
group draw.
TO MEET HUSKIES
The following week-end, February
14 and 15, the team plans to journey
down to Martin Pass where the annual meet with the University of
Washington Huskies will take place.
As in past years, this event is one
of the highlights in campus skiing.
Two teams, and A and B, are invited
to take part in the four-way events.
As this is an four-way event for
each and every man Coach Vajda is
somewhat at a loss in picking his
team. Some of the lads are good in
downhill and slalom and others are
good in crass-country and jumping.
To got' a team composed of men who
are excellent in all four events
is going to be a hard job, but the
coach hopes to form a well-rounded
team for the various events.

a result of the classic six game series.
Last years turnout of fans numbered

tho game the crowds are expected to

and Green of the Vancouver Lions
are in training for the opening day

Chief Quintette
Defeats Stacys
UBC's Chiefs, after a slow start,
warmed to the game Saturday night,
and finished the game downing the
cellar dwelling Stacy quintet by a
score of 51-36. Losing this game blankets any hopes the Stacy cagemen may
have had of making the playoffs.
Doug Whittles Chieftains unable to
game, found themselves trailing the
Shoemen 14-15 when the half-time
whistle sounded.
Even in the third quarter, the Chiefs
did not lay the Stacymen completely
low. It was not until the last quarter
that the Campus hoopers salted the
game away by topping the Stacy quintet 20-12 in scoring honors.
Stacy's Gordy Lynn, who is usually
well up in the individual scoring lists,
topped the Shoeman with 16 points.
MW/ALOMAS TOPS
Calculated favorites to capture the
City Inter A uitle are the league leading MeralomA quintet. With such
powerful jjlars as Sandy Robertson,
Ole BakjKn, and our own Jack Pomfret, tJt?ie Lomas have won all of their
tweVve games, without a single defeat.
Next in line are the New Westminster hoopmen, Adanacs by name. They
ihould provide UBC with the toughest type of opposition when the play-
'oft's open at Exhibition Gardens on
Wednesday night.
The Chiefs and Adanacs open the bill
at 7:45, and Lauries meet the 'Loma
quintet at 9:00 p.m.

200 yard freestyle—fell to the Jokers,
and this high powered consistency was
the key to the impressive margin established by the Jokers.
ARTS WOMEN WIN
Sparked by Kay Eastwood, Peggy
Winter, and Jane Pendleton, a faculty
team, swimming under the title of
"Arts I", captured the feminine edition of the intramural championship
by virtue of a 35 point total, more than
enough to edge out the "Arts 3" aggregation. The Nurses rose to
heights in the Candle Relay novelty
event, and took third place.
Intermission frolics were supplied
by the ever-willing Jokers who staged
a series of leaps and dives from the
three metre board climaxing in the
daring "Last Ride of Paul Revere"
with Junior Tennant in the saddle.
Mastermind behind the performance
was Splash Joker, Dick Ellis, former
professional lifeguard at one of Vancouver's local beaches.
MCKENZIE TAKES FREESTYLE
Ian McKenzie gave early indication
of Fiji strength when he swan two
smooth lengths in the creditable time
of 27:2 seconds to capture the individual 50 yards freestyle event. A bare
arm-length behind was Harvey Allan,
last year's Intramural Diving Champion, and in third place was Aggie
stalwart Whitlam.
The feature race of the evening, the
100 yards freestyle classic was a
thriller from the starting gun. After
one length, it became an evident
struggle between Barry Taylor of the
Alpha Delts and Gordie Noels of the
Betas. Noels held a slim lead over
his chunky rival for three furious
lengths, but in the nal 25 yards endurance came to the fore, and Taylor
touched the finish a few strokes in the
lead in the time of 66.2 seconds.
Kappa Sig Butterworth proved himself the class of the breatstroke artists,
splashing the 50 yard distance in the
time of 36:. The backstroke event
was won handily by Eugene Trademan,
No. 1, man on the Zeta Beta Tau
crew, Trademan went the 50 yard
route in dorsal fashion in a mite over
36 seconds.
