Above is the architect's conception of the appearance of the U. B. C. Library when the proposed
new wing is realized. The present library building is only one example of the serious overcrowding
now felt throughout the University. Classrooms in all faculties are inadequate, and the professors
and  instructors are finding it almost impossible to keep up with their work,
The new wing, if completed, would contain reading seafs for some 3^0 students, to be divided
into a Required Reading Room, a Periodical Room, a Document Room and a Music Audition Room.
There would also be considerable storage space, a nd a new home for the Burnett collection.
More Elaborate Program
For Homecoming Weekend
Faculty Room
For Classes
Unusual activity in the Faculty
room of the Library indicates
that in a few days even this last
sanctum of professorial solitude
will be opened to help relieve
over-crowded student classes in
the University,
Dean Buchanan has asked for
the use of the room to accommodate an overflow of students in
the Mathematics Department, it
is believed. Some of these students, according to observers,
have never had a seat since the
term began.
Accordingly blackboards have
been set up and seats arranged to
be ready for the flrst class Monday morning.
Paging Poets And
Have you long hair, hollow eyes
and dirty fingernails? Do you live
in an attick and eat liver and bread
crusts when you take time off from
practicing your violin? Do you believe   in   Art   for  Art's   sake?
Then why not win a free trip
around tho world, a Heidelberg
scholarship, a new Packard Sixteen, a Stelnway Grand Piano, or
whatever Students Council decide
upon for a prize In the new Song
Writers'   Conteat.
Whtit song? Why any Varsity
sons. There nre two classes of entries: nleo sours, nnd other songs.
Nice ones must be suitable for
radio broadcasting. The others
must be full of pep and collitch
spirit capable of spurring on football teams to greater efforts for old
Alma  Mater.
If you can write a souk that wins
both   contests,   you  get   both   prizes.
Special prizes will also be awarded [or the best original yells, using
the Thunderbird theme as a motif
uniting the various movements of
the   work.
The contest Is being sponsored

Pep  Club.
The prizes will be presented by

The contestants must all he registered   students.
The Judges will be tho student
body nt a special Pep Meeting before  Christmas.
Composers are advised to hand

Hrown at the tudents Council office.
Plans for an extensive Homecoming program are nearing completion
under direction of John Brynelsen.
The reunion of U.B.C. graduates
will commence with a dinner Friday, October 29, and continue with
a number ot affairs the following
A  noon pep meeting, followed
by a parade of cars through Vancouver, will precede the traditional    Occasionals . Varsity English
rugby game at 2 p.m. Saturday,
October  30.
This game will  be staged at the
stadium, and will be the flrst in a
double-header, the aecond game being   a   Hardy   Cup   match   between
University of Alberta Golden Bears
and      U.B.C.      Canadian     football
A tea dance in the gym will follow the games, and dinner for students and alumni will be served in
the caf.
In the evening, grads and students will clash in a basketball
At the university theatre, several
one-act plays will be presented on
a brilliant program.
Milt Owen, president of the
Alumni Association, is in charge
of the graduates' arrangements,
with Brynelsen preparing the student activities.
A pre-game rally In the Palomar
Ballroom Friday evening may be
staged as a part of the Homecoming
program. For students, admission
would  be  by passes.
News of a proposed "walk-out
strike" against the university busses reached the Ubyssey Thursday.
According to those planning the
mass protest, .students would be
asked to co-operate in not using the
bus service for several days.
The plan is to have students
walk to the campus from Sasamat
street, or egt their transportation
from car drivers, who will also be
asked to co-operate.
Sponsors of the proposed "walkout" are objecting to the aged
busses used on the university run.
They declare that a better service
should be given the students, who
do not have transfer privileges to
city lines.
The university bus service is operated by the B.C.E.R., under direction of the Provincial Government.
Many students are employed as
drivers by the company.
Haweis   Prints
On   Display
Forced out of its normal home by
the turning over of the faculty room
to the university as a classroom, the
Library's flrst art exhibit, the work
of Stephen Haweis may be seen in
the  halls.
Decorative motifs are predominant in the works, which cannot lay
any particular claim to being great,
or even good art. The composition
is the main interest, everything else
being subordinated to it. Color is
restrained,  and  used  sparingly.
Some of the works are formalized
in the extreme, notably the group
on the dance in Fiji, and the group
of conventional designs. While they
would form valuable acquisitions as
"background" decorations, they do
not merit any position of importance. Hundreds of people are
turning out this type of thing, although Mr. Haweis has a peculior
rhythm of design which is especially pleasing. —N.R.D.
The annual Wesbrook Memorial
Service, honoring the flrst president of the University, will be observed on Wednesday, October 21,
when a wreath will be placed on
the grave of Dr. Wesbrook at the
Mountain   View   Cemetery.
The traditional ceremony wiii
take place at 12.15, and all students
able to provide cars (or transportation to the cemetery are asked
to communicate imrjiedlately with
Alex.   Charters.
Dr. Morsh Denies
Racial Differences
Dr. Joseph Horsh, in nn address
to the Psychology Club in Agriculture 100. Friday last, declared that
there was no such thing as races
and if there were, there would be
absolutely no grounds for racial
Dr.   Morah   stated   that   after   a
careful  scientiflo study of the racial   queation   It   waa   found   that
typical repreaentatlvea of varloua
racea do not exlat. He stated that
modern   solenoe   oan   find   no   differentiation   In  the  senses  of the
different   raoes.
There  is  no  sure  evidence  In  regard ao racial difference in mental
traits,   he declared,  and   in  spite  of
this   there   is   a   universal   belief   of
difference    and    thus    a    universal
aversion,    more    commonly    called
Racial   Prejudice.
Dr. Morsh added that "Race prejudice is becoming a real menace
to society in that children learn it
quickly and are impervious to
change  In   their   college  years."
Ubyssey Survey Finds Serious
Cramping in Campus Club Rooms
Dramatic facts proving that over-crowding at U. B. C.
has extended into the realm of extra-curieular student life
are revealed in the results of a Ubyssey survey held during
the past week.
With few exceptions, Ubyssey investigators discovered
that student organizations are cramped for space, that efficiency and scope of their work is being seriously handicapped
by this state of affairs.
Among the objectives of the survey were studies of conditions in the Alma Mater offices, the Musical Society room,
the Pep Club headquarters, the Publications Offlce, the Green
Room, and the common rooms.
Highlights Ot
The Survey
A eomprehsnslvs survsy of
overorowdlng oondltlons among
student elubs st U. B. C. has
brought to light seversl Important fsets.
Members of the Ubysey staff,
In working on this project, have
discovered that the "plneh" of
overorowdlng on the esmpus Is
bslng felt as muoh by societies
of the A.M.S. as by the university
olsssrooms and labs.
In some respsets, at any rats,
It Is felt that sn Immediate relief of the oondltlons of the extra-
eurrleulsr groups would ssslst In
ssttlng right the situation In ths
aeadsmlo   departments.
Fsets revealed by the Ubysssl
survey  Include:
1. The A. M. S. genersl office
Is at lesst one-quarter the else
that It should be for efflolent operation  In  use  of student funds.
2. Some offices, suoh ss the
Ubyssey and the Pep Club, are
so Inadequate that much necessary work  Is  left undone.
3. Common room space Is far
too amall for the student body of
4. Objeotlonable "oaf loitering"
la a dlreot reault of the lack of
space   In   atudent   clubrooms.
5. At least a score of clubs
hsve no campus headquarters,
and have to meet In private
6. Annually Increasing registration will bring about far more
serious oondltlons a yesr from
now, If the present trend continues.
Carnegie Music Set
To Be Inaugurated In
Auditorium Tonight
A limited number of Invitations
for the concert of recorded music
to be presented in the Auditorium
this evening are available to students and can be obtained from Professor Dilworth or tlie Bursar's office.
Thla   program,   Introducing  the
set of 980 records presented slong
with   modern   reproducing   equipment   to   the   University,   by   the
Csrnegle Corporation  laat aprlng,
haa   been   arranged   to   Illustrate
the variety of the gift collection,
and will comprise selections from
light  opera,  symphonic,  chamber
• nd   vocal   music.     The   highlight
of the  presentation, according to
Professor Dilworth, will be an excerpt   from    Schonberg's   "Gurre-
Lleder," sung  by  Rose  Bampton.
The  committee  In  charge  of  the
collection   announced   that   if  plans
at   present   under   way   are   considered   feasible,   weekly   or   bi-weekly
programs  will   be  arranged   for  the
exclusive     benefit    of    the    student
Mr. Ridington Advises
Rough Treatment of
Table Reservations
The preaent crowded conditions
of the library will not permit the
reserving of aeata in the Reading
Room. Owing to the oongeated
accommodations in the Reading
Room aome students have started
the practice of leaving books on
the tables in order to Insure
ohaira on their return from lectures   or  from   other   buildings.
John Ridington, librarian, announces that the atudenta who
are unable to find other seats,
should push the books to the centre of the tsble snd take the
placea  thus  made  available.
Dally, hundreds of Itsms of
student business psss through the

the Book Store.
Here, Mr. 8. Horns presldss In

nsss of ths A. M. S. and all affiliated  organisations.
Two assistants also work in
this small spsee, now cluttered up

equipment. As a buslnsss hsad-

$20,000  HANDLED
An annual A.M.S. Income and disbursement of over $20,o6"o passes
through the general office. To this
one congested spot converge all
executive heads of campus organizations to discuss and transact
their business.
The 920,000 or more which ls
available for the operations of campus groups must of course be
handled in small amounts, and must
be checked by council members and
club officers. Bookkeeping under
such cramped conditions presents
a problem to Mr. Home and his
staff—a problem which they will
not be able to solve another year if
registration follows the rising trend
of the pqst few terms.
Serious loss of time and efficiency
results from the conditions under
which   the   A.M.S.   office   is  run.
In addition, executive groups are
constantly demanding use of the
student board room for meetings,
because of overcrowding in their
own rooms. Demand on the board
room Is so heavy at times that the
private offlce of the A.M.S. president has to be used for this purpose.
In a small room, smaller than
the average olassroom In the
Arta Building, the Musical Society with Its membership of nesr
100 students, Is forcsd to earry
on Its affairs.
Meetings, some rehearsals, and
business matters must all be conducted   within   this   small   space.
Commenting upon this situation,
Musical Society director, C. Hayden
Williams, told the Ubyssey that
musicians are forced to rehearse
hitnus music stands. "They take
up too much room," he said.
Three desks, three typewriters
and two large tables are all Jammed Into the  12 by 20 foot office
commonly known as the "Pub."
This   is   the   onjy   provision   that
can  he made for the  publication of
the Ubyssey, Totem and Handbook.
These major activities of the students, involving an annual investment of over $5,000, must be carried on under circumstances which
discourage sincere effort on the
part of  those  taking  part.
A classroom may be crowded,
Ubyssey staff members state, and
yet conditions are not bad there
because all that ls required of students in class is concentration on
the words of the professor in
However, they declare, any attempt to proceed with a systematized plsn for neoessary improvements in student publications Is doomed under prevailing
oondltlons of inefficient congestion.
Twenty persons cannot get much
work done in the small publications
headquarters. Better accommodation in this department of student
affairs must be forthcoming before
the staff can successfully meet the
demands being made upon it, editors claim.

Bishop Taylor-
Smith Tells Of
EventfuJ   Life
Ex-Chaplain General
Gives Students
Serious Advice
As a guest of the Varsity Chrls-
tion Union, Bishop Taylor-Smith,
K.C.B., C.V.O., D.D., and British
Chaplain-general In 1914-18, addressed a capacity crowd of students Thursday In Aggie 100.
Introduced by the Pastor of the
Metropolitan Tabernaeele- as "an
outstanding speaker from the Swa-
nlch Conference," Bishop Smith told
how he is travelling with the D. L.
Moody Centennary Services now
touring the U.S.A. and Canada.
At one time Chaplain to Queen
Victoria, the Bishop has been in
many countries during his "eventful life," as he himself styled it.
He went from Cairo to the Cape in
Africa,, taking six months over the
trip, and he has also been in China
and India.
His informal talk included many
stories from his own experiences
and gave much sober advice to the
numerous students present.
Referring to the human as a mo.
tor with three cylinders which give
the power to the three main functions of man's life—physical, intel-
lectural and spiritual — Bishop
Smith said, "God will not be satis-
fled with a motor of only two cylinders."
"One   of   the   things   that   has
been of inestimable value to me
in my  busy life is an ability to
carry on a constant conversation
with God," declared the speaker.
Bishop Smith has come from London,  England,  across  Canada,  and
is about to leave for  Seattle on a
trip down the Pacific Coast, eventually   going   to   Australia   and   then
home to  England  in time for next
"What is this year's opera production to be?" is the pending question among Musical Society members at this season of the year.
Arguments continue pro and con
between grand and light opera.
Grand opera has never been undertaken at U.B.C, as it is felt to be
too great and costly a venture
under the conditions of this university.
The opera committee in favour ot
lighter material has remained noncommittal in the matter of which
opera is to be selected. Being considered, however, are two well-
known operas, "Bohemian Girl," by
Balfe, and "Yeoman of the Gaurd,"
by Gilbert and Sullivan.
A    choice   of    the    "Bohemian
Girl" is a near-departure into the
field of grand opera and would be
an addition to the Society's  policy to improve the type of music
offered to the public each year.
The   choice   of   "Yeomen   of   the
Guard" would  mark  an  acceptable
return to Gilbert and Sullivan compositions  which   have   proved   most
successful in former years.
Stellar performances of "Io-
lanthe," "The Mikado," "Ruddiore,"
"H.M.S. Pinafore" and "The Pirates
of Penzance" in previous years have
made Vancouver audiences familiar
with these excellent student productions.

University extra-curricular activities seem destined for
a good deal of restriction unless better accommodation for
student societies is forthcoming.
At flrst view, this seems to be an almost hopeless situation. Naturally, with overcrowding affecting the academic
side of university life, flrst consideration should be given to
the providing of additional classrooms and better library
The students, however, have reached the point in the
development of the Alma Mater Society where expansion is
a vital necessity. Evils of the present conditions are well
outlined in an account in this issue.
Facilities of the A.M.S. can be expanded without expenditure of any money that has not yet been raised. New
offices for major clubs can be provided with money that is
already in the bank—the $41,000 raised towards the projected
Brock Memorial Student Union Building.
One of the wings of this proposed student, centre is
designed to house offices of the A.M.S. and affiliated campus
organizations. Cost of this wing, flrst unit in the new building, is estimated to be not over $40,000, in fact, considerably
What better use of money already collected could be
made than construction of this unit of the Union Building?
A portion of this money is not actual cash, but an A.M.S.
meeting in the spring of 1936 authorizes the floating of a
loan of $10,000 for this purpose. No further steps need to
be taken before proceeding with this loan. There need be
no delay if council sees flt to go ahead.
Housing of council business offices in this building would
relieve the present cramped state in which Mr. Horn and his
staff find themselves. It would enable the Publications Board,
now working in quarters far too small for comfort and efficiency, to move into the present council offices, a perfect
situation for the administration of the affairs of the Ubyssey,
Totem and Handbook.
It would make it possible for Buildings Manager J. Lee,
now in a small offlce next to the Publications Board, to expand
his headquarters to include both his present room, and the
adjoining one now used by the "pub" staff.
Location of Musical Society, Pep Club and other offices
in the new building would relieve the overcrowding being
suffered by these organizations. If a common room could be
fitted into the plans of the new structure, it would release a
room in the Arts Building that could be converted into a
There is nothing standing in the way of this proposal.
The money is on hand, the need is urgent, and the additional
facilities that would be made available would relieve what is
fast nearing an unbearable situation.
A major feature of council policy this year, according to
Dave Carey, will be the attempt to impress citizens of Vancouver and of the province that U.B.C. students are not the
outcasts of society that some would think.
As any politician can tell you, one of the best ways to
influence public opinion is through the use of the radio. U.B.C.
students are particularly fortunate in this respect, as they
have received the wholehearted co-operation of the management and staff of CJOR, one of Vancouver's leading stations.
The new student program, "Varsity Time," which made
its debut over CJOR Tuesday evening, is presented without
cost to the A.M.S. Air time is being donated by the station,
as is the valuable services of several members of the staff.
For the first time in local sport history, an 'English rugby
game was broadcast when CJOR aired the games and ceremonies connected with the stadium opening last month.
CJOR is making a step forward in giving this assistance
to the Alma Mater Society. Careful work on the part of
the "Varsity Time" executive will ensure that the station
will have no cause to regret its labors in this regard.

AWAKENING the other morning
■^ from a rather dramatic dream
starring Dr. Sedgewick, three varicolored dinosaurs, and an orchestra
of pneumatic drills, we were just
contemplating rolling a bloated
head a point or two to starboard
when a familiar voice jarred on our
damaged nerves. It was a nasty,
Irritating voice and we recognized
It at once as Conscience.
"Well?"  said  Conscience.
"Well?" we replied uneasily.
"Out  a  bit   late  again,  eh?"
"Just a Thanksgiving dinner,
nothing   worse,"  we  protested.
"In that case you won't have any
difficulty making that nine o'clock
after   all,"   said   Conscience.
"Now look here," we said. "One
can always borrow the notes, and
besides it's a waste of time attending classeB ln this soggy condition."
"There you go," said Conscience.
"Just as I thought. Do you know
you cut three lectures last week?
And did you try to borrow the
notes? No. Do you realize that
exams are only eight weeks away?
Or that you haven't looked at a
book yet, and can't even remember
the subjects ot those three essays
due next month? You are something of a young waster, not to
mention a slacker and a roisterer.
And yet you have the audacity to
He there and suggest that you
should skip another nine o'clock
simply because you over-satiated
your fleshly appetite last evening
like   some   wild   beast/"
This was a bit too thick so we
tottered off to search for the bicarbonate of soda.
/CONSCIENCE, however, was not
yet done. Over the toast and
marmalade he still plagued us so
that we read the front page of the
"News-Herald" hy mistake and forgot  all   about   O.   O.   Mclntyre.
That part about the wild beast
and the fleshly appetite had hurt
us more than Conscience knew.
That shot had gone home. Because
we had always firmly believed that
a little more beastliness in our
character would be a good thing.
Children have always been too confident of us. It Is always to us
that they come with their Oz books
and their sticky starfish hands and
their neglected noses. Their older
sisters are too confident of us too,
treating us "Just like a brother,"
and trusting us Implicitly to come
to the rescue when less reliable—
and   more   romantic—males   fall.
""\7*ERY well then," said Conscience, when we had explained
all this to him. "Why don't you do
something to prove you are not a
beast or a slacker or a young waster? Why don't you get ln and
plug? -Why don't you do something
useful and worthwhile and significant?"
We thought It all over on the way
to varsity. We were too late for
that nine o'clock after all, but
when we entered the Pub there was
a new firmness in our step, a new
gleam of determination ln our eye.
"Listen, you," we said to the
Editor, seating ourself firmly on his
typewriter. "Chang Suey must
comeback! It is time the Good God
returned to these empty cloisters."
The Editor said no. The Editor
grew up as a Sports reporter instead of on the General staff, and
his outlook on life is permanently
warped. There are a number ot
things the Editor doesn't like and
Chang Suey is most of them. The
remainder Include Muck Pages and
Spring Poetry.
We were firm, however. We
wrote Chapter One of a new instalment, and half of Chapter Two to
prove we were serious about it all.
The Editor read it and said it
was even worse than the Chang
Suey of old.
Then we remembered that the
Editor is very scrupulous about
publishing letters to the editor, so
we, typed, "Dear Sir" over the
title, and signed lt "Mother of Ten."
The Editor still said no.
Silent  Enemy
Shown Thursday
By   Film   Society
600 Students Attend
First Presentation
Of Year's Program
"Silent Enemy," flrst feature of
the U. B. C. Film Society's 1938
season, showed Thursday noon ln
the Auditorium hefoie 000 students. An effectively treated account
of Indian life in Northern Ontario
before arrival of white people, it
was produced in co-operation with
the Dominion Department of Indian
Affairs, and the provincial governments of Quebec and Ontario.
Using the standard 16 mm. projector which will be employed this
year, and with a dubbed-in musical
score accompanying the spoken
commentary, the picture was distinguished by dignity and strength
of photography.
Lines  of  Indiana   In  tha  anow,
tho  oarlbou  horda In flight, canoes ahootlng the rapids and gliding Into amooth water, all provldo
exoellent   photographic' material.
The simple plot, effective enough
for the  circumstances,  but  a   little
too   standardized   ln   the   clinches,
didn't  gain   by   the   high-school  Intonation   of   the   commentary.
The Interest of the material, however, and strength of the presentation, compensated amply for any
more superficial defects.
Showings bringing high - grade
European Alms to the campus will
continue through the fall and
spring terms. Old-time features
which were milestones In their day,
and are now valuable as a study
of former screen technique, will also be brought out.

Cairn Monument
To Expansion
"This commemoration service is
the link between the old and the
new," declared Dave Carey at the
Cairn ceremony last Friday, when
he addressed freshmen gathered on
the mall for the annual event.
"The   ceremony   today   signifies
the passing on of a responsibility
to you," Carey told the frosh.
"Should it be necessary for you
to assume that responsibility,  I
know   you   will   not   fall   to   respond," he said.
Carey was alluding to the fact
that the Cairn is a monument to

The Exchange Editor
The secretary of the S.C.M. at
the University of Manitoba sees fit
to assume the attitude that the S.
CM. iu B. C. can get along without
the aid of the Alma Mater Society.
"The S.C.M. ln B. C. is a very
strong organization, one that can
get along without the aid of the
Alma Mater Society." It is quite
probable that they will find it advisable to assume independent status, similar to the organization
here," he stated in an interview
with the Manltoban last week.
"The relationship of the S.C.M.
with the U.M.S.U.. Manitoba student organization, is one of friendly
co-operation," Mr. Armstrong said.
"The S.C.M. is not a sub-committee,
and therefore is not obliged to report its financial transactions to
the   U.M.S.U.   Council."
We appreciate Mr. Armstrong's
uninhibited statements, a reaction
to our press dispatches in regard
to the S.C.M. controversy on our
own campus, since such statements
bring a few points Into the clear.
We have little knowledge of how
Manitoba students run their affairs,
but after last year's fiasco apropos
of the status of Venua, we are not
impressed by their Ideas. Perhaps
their chapter of the S.C.M. can get
along with the Council there quite
peacefully. Perhaps such could be
the case here. In fact, It has been J
But, we are aware of the fact
that any organisation of students
on this campus Is representative of
the University as a whole. And if,
at any time, any organisation should
become engaged in any unfavorable
controversy such circumstances
necessarily be borne also by the
University as a whole.
Such being the case, we have
due regard for rumors and accusations levelled at the S.C.M. in the
past, not only here but elsewhere
throughout Canada and the U.S.A.,
and are ot the opinion that such
a society should hold Itself responsible to the student governing body
of this university.
Our friend Mr. Armstrong says
that his organization is supported
by Interested students and professors,and several business Arms
downtown, which have contributed
in the past to defray office expenses.
U.B.C. students have been able
In the past to support their own
organizations. And we are sure
that they would regard as questionable any student organization which
found the necessity or desire for
downtown support.
It can be easily understood that
activities of the S.C.M. which
might be criticised can be better
justified, from the point of view of
both students and general public,
by council. And if any occurrences
merit the criticism levelled at them
they may be properly and quickly
dealt with by council for the best
protection of the university as a
U. B. C. students havs built s
gymnasium, playing fields, a stadium, and for 21 years hsvs operated   suoesssfully   a    number   of
olubs  on  this  oampua  under tho
principle   of   centralized   atudent
self-government.     Now   that   the
Issue   has   boon   raised  we  think
that suoh an Idsal should be preserved by refusal to allow a precedent to ths eontrary.
Of   course,   there   is   always   the
other    alternative    which    no    one
seems  to have thought of yet.  Students   might   not   feel   Inclined   to
accept responsibility for the S.C.M.
Under    such    circumstances,   according   to   university   regulations,
the   society  would  necessarily   lose
its university connection altogether.

no stress need be laid upon the
needs of any one group. Results
of the Ubyssey survey show that
the necessity for expansion ls generally felt throughout the campus.
"Pepsters," crammed into a room
no bigger than a professor's office,
are beginning to get in swing with
the prevailing overcrowding motif
at U.B.C.
Two or three boys painting signs,
a few members of some club doing
similar work, a committee working
on plans for a pep meet, and other
popsters discussing club business—
such scenes aro not uncommon, in
this, the smallest student club room
on  the  campus.

These organizations are forced to
gather at the  homes of members,
Instead   of  on   the   campus,   where
they   rightfully   should.     Students
state that meetings at homes tend
to break the groups away from the
University. They become small private societies, with little connection
with the A.M.S.
Conditions in the women's common rooms are as congested as in
other departments on the campus.
Until 3:30 the lower room is filled
to capacity, with as many as sixteen
chairs around a table for twelve.
The upper room, for senior women, is always moderately full, but
seven times a week discussion
groups are held here, and women not
participating in the lecture are sent
to the room below—where there Is
no room for them.
Teas for out-of-town girls, Phrateres', S.C.M., W.U.S. and W.A.A.
are held in the lower common room,
due to its proximity to the kitchen.

narrow passage outside the lower

Alex Macdonald exploded the first
bomb in the Parliamentary Forum

"warping and perverting the minds
of its  adherents."
Macdonald claimed that militarism should not be tolorated on a
campus where enlightening eduoatlon  la the  predominant thought.
"Unlversltlea should seek universal   pence,"   he   said,   "snd   not  a
militaristic   peace."
Norm   DePoe  fired  back- at  Mac-
donald's arguments. DePoe claimed
that    the    C.O.T.C.    disciplined    its
men for the business world.
He said military training showed
men how to co-operate in organization work and how to handle
groups. According to DePoe the C.
O.T.C. will enable Canada to defend
its borders, which extend as far as
those of the British Empire. "An
invasion ln India," he said, "would
be just as effective as if Japan Invaded the shores of Canada."
Nine members out of an attendance of 115 expressed their views
on the subject. Very promising
ability was displayed by some of
these Impromptu debaters, declared

Varsity  Time
On The Air
"Varsity Time," newest expression of student enthusiasm for U.B.
C, took the air for the first time
Tuesday evening.
Undergraduate musical talent
and speeches by President Klinck
and Dr. Sedgewick served to introduce the University to radio listeners, while student executives briefly
outlined their activities for the edification of the general public.
"The public should be given an
opportunity    to    acquaint    Itself
with the more important undergraduate activities, even though
these may be of less interest and
make   less  of   a   popular  appeal
than do sports and dances," declared Dr. Klinck in lauding the
efforts of all who worked to make
possible the radio series.
Dr.    Sedgewick    denned    0011606
spirit as being born of student desire to broaden University life, declaring  that  it   is   not   merely  a
means of letting off steam.
Dave Carey, Peggy Fox, Kemp
Edmonds, and Betty Bolduc were
student personalities interviewed,
the latter being the flrst second-
generation student at U.B.C.
Musical background for the programme was provideed by the singing of the Varsity hymn, "Alma
Mater," while Ozzie Durkln and
Wilf Wylle gave variety with a
piano duet. Dorwin Baird and Jack
Stark officiated at the microphone.

Initiation Prank
WINNIPEG, Oct. 15. (WIPU)—
Peaceful relations which have existed between the University of
Manitoba student body and the citizens of Winnipeg for the last six
months, were rudely disturbed last
Friday, when protests from numerous organizations began to appear
in the mall of Varsity dignitaries,
after the initiation of freshies by
the Science faculty.

regarding this desecration, stated

taken, and that none of the ceremonies   actually   took   place   there.

Nancy Miles, Arts '35, former columnist on the Ubyssey. Nancy has

It seems that a left-handed compliment was given red-heads hy
theAlpha Kappa Fraternity of the
University of Western Ontario,
when they announced that all men
escorting titlan-hairetl girls to their
dance on Saturday would be admitted   for   half   price!
The long black limousine shrieked to a stop before the overcrowded
Library, and a shadowy form slipped from the running board to the
bushes skirting the building. Chang
Suey had  returned.
A moment later he faced the
hooded group lu the crowded underground council chamber. Elbowing his way through to the front
of the crowd he addressed the mysterious Group of Nine who sat on
the edge of the table, due to lack
of  space.
"It Is I, Chang Suey, who speak.
Listen or die." There was silence
save for the dripping of water and
the guttering noises of the candles
that sputtered ln the skulls along
the  wall.
"What is thees thing I hear,
spoken everywhere by the tongues
of the rabble? Thees thing of
overcrowding ?'
His sinister, sibilant, hissing
voice ceased for an Instant and a
shudder or horror passed through
the crowd as he glared from hts
menacing yellow eyes Into each
hooded face.
Dave Farey, at the head of the
table, cleared his throat nervously,
and stammered, "I was rather expecting  that  .  .  ."
"So you were expecting that,
yes," Chang hissed. "My fren', you
are foolish to expect anything of
Chang Suey. In these book of yours
which speak of Heaven and Hell,
lt ls truly written that out of the
mouths of babes and sucklings
drools much wisdom. But not with
yo,u, my friend Farey."
At this moment the gloomy,
crowded chamber was brilliantly Ut
for an Instant by a flashlight bulb,
and a courteous voice said, "Thank
you!" Oscar Scrlbblewell, ace reporter of the Ubyssey, and Carter
Hambury quickly dived through the
cro.wd at the rear of the room and
"Dammit," said Vyle Line. "My
face was hidden. And they didn't
even ask for a quote."
"It is truly written," said Chang
in a singsong voice, his face Illuminated with the light of a seer,
"that because Vyle is on council,
all councillors need not be heels.
All the same they are."
"You yellow menace/" screamed
"I menace well be that as anything else," retorted Chang calmly,
and ducked under the table. A
moment later he appeared at the
other end of the room, his long
gleaming wing-jing clutched between his teeth and a Buck Rogers
disintegrator   In   each   hand.
The rabble became hushed again,
gasped  ln horror as  Chang hurled
a   parting  hand   grenade   and   vanished through the celling.

Stalking stealthily across the
foggy lawns to the Arts Building,
the Insidious Oriental glanced at
an upper window in the Arts Building where a dim light was burning.
"Aha," he chortled hissingly.
"The great Dr. Redgwlck is planning more wickedness. I must consult the old sorcerer to ask him
to solve the mystery of the lost
Union Building."
Slurklng smoothly down the dark
corridors Chang hesitated a moment outside the sage's cell, pinned

get back into the local grid picture
on Saturday afternoon at Athletic
Park when they tackle the strong
North Shore Lions.
Maury   Van   Vliet's   boys   returned from an unsuccessful prairie trip with plenty  of vim  and
vigor  left,  and  they   promise  to
wreck their vengeance on the flrst
Big    Four   team    they    run    up
against,   and   as  the   Lions   also
have some very definite views on
football   victories,   the  fireworks
are expected to explode with  a
bang on Saturday P.M.
The Varsity lads have been'playing against the breaks in the flrst
three starts, and they hold that it
is about time things started coming
their  way.   But  regardless   of  the
breaks the Thunderbird gridders are
due for a win and they will be playing for keeps against the Lions.
The Blue and Gold squad came
through the prairie jaunt in a pretty well battered shape, and Van
Vlelt expects to juggle his line-up
in order to field the strongest team.
Evan apRoberts, star half-back
and the standout player of the Conference tour, has decided to tackle
books instead of backs for the rest
of the season, and the Varsity backfleld will be hard put to replace him.
Ralph Henderson is also definitely
out of Saturday's encounter with a
had leg, and Barney Boe is not
likely to start.
A number of juniors are expected
to be used by Coach Van Vliet to
bolster up the backfleld and put
more power into the line. What the
rookies lack in experience they
make up for in enthusiasm, and
Maury expects the team to be as
strong if not stronger than before.
Varsity   Skiers
Prep for U.W.
The Varsity Ski Club, planning to
hold forth on Hollyburn Rridge
again this year, held its initial
meeting early in the week, with a
disappointing turnout of about 40
members. Plans are being formulated to rent a cabin on the ridge,
as in previous seasons, and the
general moan of Mickey Pogue, the
club prexy, is to the effect that
with a few more members, a permanent club-owned cabin could be
In   an   effort   to   increase   the
ability of campus planksters, motion pictures of the 1936 Olympic
Winter   Sports  will   be  shown  in
the near future, and  it is hoped
that a great many more enthusiastic   skiers   will   turn   out   to   See
skiing as she is really done.
Preparation is already under way
for   the   annual   meet   with   U.   of
Washington,   and   hopes   are   high
that last year's victory will  be repeated.  In this cause, Mickey Pogue
is calling for volunteers, calling for
more spirit on the part of clubbers
at present on the campus, and for
all those who have registered their
interest   in   the   slippery   sport,   to
come into the open and get going.

inter-class hoop tussles, with plenty

bitter battles for points. And today, Aggie-men will match basket-

But even in such a smooth-flowing stream . . . should that be

the lackadaisical attitudes of most

Roundballers Lose
To Service Taxi
Since they lost their flrst start
to an enterprising Service Taxi
squad at Cambie Street on Saturday, Varsity soccerites have been
putting their backs into practice
and training with even more gusto
}han  before.
Although the score of 5-0 Is by
no means a fair Indication of the
sotual play, Coach Charlie Hitchins hss effeoted one or two radical changes In an sttempt to
remedy ssveral glaring defeots.

Drop Heart-breaker to Saskatchewan;
Tracksters Also Lose to Manitoba
Peeling bruised, battered, and Just a bit downcast,t he U. B. C.
touring carsvan of footbalers and tracksters ohecked in at the Varsity
sport station on Wednesdsy after a rather disappointing Invasion of
the   Prairies.
A little burg by the name of Saskatoon was the principal scene of
disaster on the trip. 'Twas there the plgsklnners dropped a heart-
breaker to the Blue and White Saskatchewan twelve on the 9th, by a
2-0 acore. After outplaying the home team all the way, B. C.'s reps,
failed to capitalize on opportunities, and lost this first Hardy Cup go
on  pure,  unaccountable  bad  luok.
And -— 'twas there the annual
Western Intercollegiate track meet
was held, with competing teams
from Manitoba, Alberta and Saskatchewan, ns well as the invading
Columbians. Twenty-seven points
were the slim total mustered by the
Blue and Gold in their quest for
the Rutherford trophy, which remained in 'toba, along with the
Cairns cup for women's track supremacy.
Moving on to Edmonton, the
coast collegians dropped their final
"tussle to Alberta 17. by a 15-9 score
on the 11th. But this time, the
local   boys   were   so   bad   off,   that
McPhee and Upward
Return to the
With a win last Saturday over
West Vancouver, and the return to
the folds this week of two former
Blue and Gold stars, Captain Dob-
bie, of the English Ruggers, indulged in a smooth, satisfied smile
as he confidently predicted a victory
over Meralomas on Saturday,
But even with Howie McPhee
again speeding through opposing
ruggers, and Ron Upward scattering enemy forwards in fine fettle,
the Senior ruggers will have their
hands full against the newly-promoted 'Loma fifteen. The Orange
and Black squad have yet to taste
defeat this year.
Johnny Bird, one of the most
consistently brilliant preformers
on the Collegiate team, will again
take on the standout tackling and
kicking assignments. Strat Leggatt and "Joe" College will click
in wing spqts, while Tremblay
and Howie McPhee swerve past
would-be tacklers from inside
three slots.
T. McPHEE AT 5/8's
With two smart showings as five-
eighths already under Ted McPhee's
belt, the same Frosh star will be
out to better that record in Saturday's tilt, while Captain Dave Carey
will start ott plays in his own inimitable style from the half spot.
As forwards, Dobble names Andrews, Upward, Robertson, Mattu,
Robson, Madeley, Harrison and McPhee. All these lads are swell heavers and should prove effective in
mobbing the 'Loma scrummen in
week-end tilt. —F.J.T.
Shuttlers Hold
Annual    Meeting
With the badminton season in
full swing, Varsity's own group of
shuttle-chasers are looking forward
to a banner season.
A recent meeting had one of the
largest  turnouts  known   in   U.B.C.
history. At the meeting, with Pres.
Peggy McLeod in the chair, a new
secretary-treasurer and a team captain were elected, in the persons of
Norm   Renwlck   and   Stan   Hayden
respectively.   Hayden's   duties   will
be to arrange for and lead a team
into the Inter-clty tournaments.
The club's chances in the city
clashes are considered to be tops
with such stars as Stan Hayden,
who holds a  provincial ranking;
, Oliver   Lacy,   another   B.C.   ace;
Alex Mconald; Betty Fleck; Margot  Martin;  the McLeod sisters,
and   the   Sellens   girls.   Probably
the  most   promising  freshette  is
Janet. Fleck, who really handles a
mean racquet.
Prospective members are urged to
pay their fees to Mr. Home as soon
as possible.
half the linemen were playing backfleld, and the only reason the plgsklnners held together from the
hard-tackling ot the Sask. players,
was  tape,  sir,  yards  of  It.
And so . . . through the Rockies,
on past the Cariboo, and home,
sweet, home — where the limbs
mend,and the memory of that Prairie chick lives on . . . and on . . .

player . . . like Williams and Henderson and ap Roberts, and Lee

drsfted  to  replace  Quayle   In  the
half line.
The soccermen have been brushing up on a few plays under the
expert supervision of Coach Hitchins during the past week and
they hope to put them into practice
on Saturday against their opponents  from  across  the  inlet.
West Vancouver also lost their
opening tussle, and with both
teams shooting for a badly-needed
win, it should be a battle royal.
The place is McRrlde Park, and the
time  3  o'clock.
The Juniors, whose first game
last week was postponed, will have
their opposition provided by the B.
C. Box aggregation at Wilson Park.
They will be out to show the Seniors that it is not impossible to
win opening games. Game-time for
this tilt is also set for 3 o'clock.
Swamp Royal City
In Last Week's
Showing a sparkling reversal of
form, Varsity's flrst division English ruggers trlunced a game but
light band of tackling demons from
Royal City by a 24-6 count.
A penalty kick by Dave Carey
and a well-earned try by Haddon,
gave the Blue and Gold fifteen a
6-3 margin at the end of the flrst
stanza. Although out-scored, the
New   Westminster  team   showed
their best form In the initial half,
with   Varsity   tackling   with   n_
precision or viciousness.
Memories of the wonder team of
last year were revived in the second
frame, as continual waves of Blue
and Gold ruggers swept through a
disorganized Westminster outfit, to
chalk  up  counters  almost  at  will.
Carey,   Bird,   Mattu   and   College
went over for major points, but It
was team play that gave the College
kids the big winning margain.

Tracksters Prep
For Coming Meet
Varsity-High Clash
Slated For Nov. 3
With their spirits only slightly
dampened by the mediocre performance on their Eastern jaunt to Saskatchewan, Varsity's trackmen are
prepping for two meets scheduled
for some time in the not-too-distant
The annual Varsity-High clash
is slated for November 3, according to Manager Bud Burden,
while the traditionally thrilling
Mall Race is also set for next
month. As is the usual custom,
the city schools are expected to
bring an enviable aggregation to
the local oval, to array themselves against the Varsity track
The trip eastward, frigid temperature and results, could not be described as a howling success, with
the boys bringing home only three
wins and three seconds for a total
of twenty-seven points to compare
with Manitoba's sixty-two. 'Toba
emerged with the cinder palm of
victory, while B.C. placed third.
The track contingent comprised,
however, only four men: Alex
Lucas, who placed second in the
high jump with a leap of 5 ft. 8 in.;
Howie McPhee, who disappointed
his fans when he placed second in
the 100; Wilf Phendray, and Vance
McComber, the standout for the
British Columbians. McComber led
the pack in half-mile and the mile,
and ran to advantage in the 880
