Fund Lack
Halts
South Wing
Lack of funds is preventing UBC
from adding a south wing to the
campus library, Dr. W. Kaye Lambe,
librarian, said Monday .
The north wing—to be completed
in the summer of 1948—will provide
adequate service for a studnt body
of 4500 to 5000, says Dr. Lambe. The
present 175,000 volume capacity of
the book stacks will be doubled with
the wing's completion.
Further broadening of the curriculum will probably make it necessary
to utilize the full 400,000 volume
capactity of the new wing, he said.
He thought it unfortunate that the
south wing could not be added to
balance the building, and to afford
additional reading and fine arts space
of the Arts faculty, Home Economics,
adequate service for a student body
DR. Lambe thought it unfortunate
that the south wing could not be added to balance the building, and to
afford additional reading and fine
arts space.
"As I told Dr. MacKenzie," chuckled Dr. Lambe, "Even an angel looks
funny with one wing."
Lewis' Condition
Said 'Improved'
Conditiion of Professor Hunter C.
Lewis who was admitted to St. Paul's
Hospital on September 17 suffering
from virus pneumonia, was reported
to be "improving" by hospital authorities at press time, Monday.
The popular professor, well known
for his activities in the Civil Liberties Union, will -probably be unable
to take up his duties in the Universtiy
of British Columbia English department again this term, his physicians
reports.

RAW EGG SHAMPOOS for freshettes were the fashion at the
Big Little Sister tea last Saturday in the Gym when upperclass
women meted out justice to freshettes who were convicted of
violating orientation rulings requiring green nail polish and
xpin curs.
RECORD NUMBER OF JOBS
OPEN FOR UBC STUDENTS
More openings than ever before for students seeking part
time employment are being offered by the Employment Service
of the UBC Veterans' Bureau.
Got Your '47 Totem Yet?
Last Chance In AMS Today
Today is positively the last opportunity for students
who have payed for the 1947 TOTEM to present their
receipts and receive their books at the AMS office.
The ultimatim, issued yesterday by Totem editor, Don
Stainsby, will be "rigidly enforced". "No receipts will be
honored after today," he said.
The few remaining 1947 TOTEMS will be resold on
the first come first served basis commencing Wednesday
at the AMS office.
Since the number is limited and a waiting list has
already been compiled, Stainsby urges any student who
wishes a copy of the book to place his order early Wednesday morning.
ADASKIN AND MARR GIVE
LECTURES ON BEETHOVEN
Professor Harry Adaskin, head of the New Department of
Music and Pianist Francis Marr will give a series of concert
lectures beginning October 7 at the Vancouver Art Gallery.
Totem Shutter
Snapping Frosh
Picture-snapping of freshmen for
the 1948 Totem began Monday.
Don Stainsby, editor of the '48
Totem, largest in the university's
history, urged students to sign appointment lists in the Quad. Photographs are being taken in A Hut at
the rear of Brock Hail.
This year's annual offers two poses
for $1.50, one of which will be chosen
for publication. At Christmas, pictures will be enlarged to portrait
size,   mounted,   and  sent  to  students,
First students to follow freshmen to
the darkroom will be the remaindr
of th Arts faculty, Home Economics,
Commerce  and  Physical Education.
The Ten Sonatas for Violin and
Piano by Beethoven will each be
he: rd. Form, structure, and thematic
material of Sontas will be examined
and  explained.
PERFORMANCE
Violin and piano examples will
be used to augment each lecture, and
each evening's class will conclude
with a concert performance of the
work.
"Beethoven's Sontas for Violin and
Piano dispersed at fairly even intervals throughout ihe composer's life,
and each one a masterpiece of its
hind," s.-iys Prof. Adaskin.
"As one plays through them one
after another one is conscious of a
mounting intensity of mastery. Some
of the Sonatas are generally familiar,
but most of them are not."
No previous musical knowledge or
training is required. Fee for the entile course  is $5.00.
The bureau registers ambitious
students and seeks to place them in
openings phoned in by Vancouver
individuals and  firms,
Officials of the bureau state that
at present about 500 male and 125
female students are registered. Most
ef them are seeking Saturday and
week-end   employment.
Job openings, they say, are coming in at a better rate than at this
time last year. A wide variety of
openings are received, with gardening, baby sitting and sales work
most common.
The service supplied by the bureau is open to veterans and nonvet-
erans alike, Applications are also
taken from veterans' wives, and jobs
are sought for them on or near the
campus.
Students seeking part time jobs
arc advised to fill in registration forms
at  the bureeiu office, HM 7.
The bureau also maintains a roster of efficient student typists who
will type students' essays, and a
number of accredited senior students who offer coaching service in
a  variety of courses.
EUS GRANT
REDUCED
Sciencemen will get $1,235 less
than they asked for from the Alma
Mater Society to cover the cost of
social functions for the coming year.
This cut is the result of Student
Council acceptance Monday night
of a finance committee report which
dealt with tne budget submitted by
the Engineers' Undergraduate Society last Monday. EUS had originally
requested $3,026, to defray costs of
the Science Ball and the Banquet.
The budget revisal was based on
the policy adopted last year of
granting 60 cents for each student
in the faculty or the alternative of
$1.00 for each sudent attending the
affair.
"The policy provides a sliding
scale designed to promote faculty
spirit," Bob Harwood, AMS treasurer pointed out. "Because of their
better faculty spirit the Engineers
will benefit to a greater extent than
any of the other undergraduate societies," he said.
It  was pointed   out   that   the 60
cents per student allotment would in
all cases be greater than a grant of
$1.00 per student attending.
The 60 cents—$1.00 alternative as
outlined in the Harwood report to
Student Council was adopted by the
Committee as general policy ,to be
followed in subsidizing all undergraduate society social functions.

UBC Library
Gets UN Papers
The University of British Columbia
has become a depository for all
documents of the United Nations it
was announced today by the President's office. The documents will be
made avaialbe to any person, free
of cost.
The university is one of the four depositories for the United Nations
publications in Canada. The other
centres are located at Montreal,
Toronto and Winnipeg.
"When it was learned that depositories would be created in those
centres, we made application for a
fourth centre in the UBC library,"
said Dr, Kaye Lambe. "Our request
received the backing* of the De-
partmnt of External Affairs, and I
have just received a letter from S.
Hartz Rasmussen, the UN librarian,
granting our request."
The University has been purchasing
United Nations documents in considerable quantity for the use of
students. Purchase of documents will
be continued in addition to the depository services to avoid depleting
the complete set due to wear and
tear.
Exchange Student
Lonely On Campus
Brown-eyed Mary Mowbray, attending UBC as an exchange student
from McMaster University in Hamilton, is lonely,
"At McMaster I knew nearly everyone," says Miss Mowbray, "but here
there are so many students that I
hardly ever see anyone I know."
Regardless of the horde of students
on the campus, Miss Mowbray likes
UBC and thinks it "beautiful."
McMASTER PRETTY
"Although," she went on, "I think
McMaster   is   even   more   beautiful."
All in all, she made out a good case
Varsity Choir To Sing
At Symphonic Premiere
A 150-voice choir of UBC students will supplement the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra in its
Canadian premiere performance
November 30 of American composer Mark Blitzstein's "Airborne Symphoney."
Already 45 students have registered for the chorus. They will perform the work with the symphony
orchestra several times in the
course of the symphony's regular
concert series. One performance
may  be  given  at:  UBC.
Performance of tho "Airborne
Symphony" is in keeping with
policy of conductor Jacques Singer
of    presenting    outstanding    con
temporary compositions. "Airborne
Symphony" is certainly contemporary—it deals with the development of aviation from man's first
the frustrated attempts to fly, expressed in Greek mythology, to
present aerial warfare.
RICHLY CHARGED
'The entire work is richly
charged with emotional appeal,"
Mr. Singer said. "Blizstcin has
captured the militant psychology
of the Germ.m rise to power, the
spirit of allied airborne personnel,
the very tenseness, the agonized
suspense that characterizes air
force life,"
The 150 voices in the chorus will
include 75 baritones and basses,
50 tenors and 25 contraltos. Prospective choirsters need not have
more than "average" singing ability. After preliminary rehersals
under C. Haydn Williams, musical
director of the Musical Society,
the chorus will be directed by
Mr.  Singer  personally.
Rehersals, which start next
week, will be timed to avoid
taking ''to much" of students'
time. First meeting of the chorus
will be held 12:30 noon Friday in
Arts 100, but choristers are urged
to register in advance at the AMS
office,
MARY MOWBRAY

she described'sunken gardens, beautiful lawns, maple trees, and the
more   "settled"  beauty   of  McMaster.
Tlie pretty 19-year-old Hamilton
co-ed takes a lively interest in sports,
including badminton and skiing. She
has never tried mountain skiing and
is looking forward to her first trip
to the North Vancouver hills this
winter.

She is also interested in debating
and dancing but denies being a "hep

Miss Mowbray 5s a third year History honors student, undecided about
her future, but has a notion to enter

NOTICE
All functions, including parties,
off-campus speakers and guest artists
must be reported in Co-ordination
Control Reports at least two weeks
in advance, AMS officials advise.
Failure to follow this regulation
may result in cancellation of the
function at any time, they warn.

SLIDING SCALE FOR SLIDING RULES
Many members of the Faculty of Applied
Science are under the misapprehension that
they deserve special consideration in the apportioning of AMS funds.
They contend that the pass feature system gives preference to other faculties at
their expense, their reasoning being that because of the nature of their courses they have
no time to attend the various programs—five
symphony concerts, ten feature guest, artists,
and so on—offered during the year.
They argue that because o: this apparent
inequality they have a right to a larger
council grant for their own social functions
than have other faculties.
This feeling is the basic cause behind the
recent dispute between council and the Engineers' Undergraduate Society concerning
the engineers' budget.
The engineers asked council to underwrite a total budget of more than $3000.
Council has acted rightly in refusing this
demand. The verdict on the problem—expected Monday morning—will probably see the
AMS subsidy substantially reduced. It is altogether likely that council will adopt the 60
cents- per-student plan for social budgets.
Fact is that the red shirts' request was
far in excess of the demands of all other
faculties. Their only justification was in precedent.
In any event is it time for a word to the
wise for engineers at large. It is just about
time the faculty as a whole—, as a whole because there have been many outstanding exceptions—got over its apparent separatist tendencies. All will agree that any move to decentralize student government can result only
in a weakening o the administrative structure.
This is a truth well evidenced as many other
universities where separate faculty governments dule independently.
It is probably due to the overall executive
at UBC that we have built up a strength of
student autonomy seldom equalled on the
American continent ... a conclusion borne
out by the fact that our's is the only school
boasting student buildings—built through
student efforts.
It is our firm conviction that any movement to establish stronger control by the
respective faculty executives, at the expense
of the council system will be highly detrimental. We feel that that fully adequate representation of faculty problems is allowed
through the Undergraduate Societies Committee and that there can be no justification
for any such move.
Anyhow, honors arts and law courses
are probably heavier than any applied science
course.
LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Behind The Headlines
By Jack Wasserman
HERE WE GO AGAIN
It is a shame about wars but it seems
that they are inevitable. There does not
appear to be much that we can do to alter the
inexorable flow of the future into the past.
We have them regularly, wars followed by
periods of uncertain peace, just like booms
and depressions, and whether we like the
idea or not we might just as well get use to
it.
BOMB RUSSIA NOW
Only a few short years ago we finished
the second in a series of "wars to end wars",
and now Mother Earth is pregnant with what
may well be the last of her babies by Papa
Mars. The damn reds are asking for it and
since we have the atom bomb and they have
not, we might as well give it to them (be 'we'
is meant the United States and etc.)
The power politicking of the last year
should have proven to everyone that two
systems as dialectically opposed as ours and
Russia's cannot get along in the same century.
The foregoing was a brief resume of the
rationalizing now going on in the Western
Democracies. There is something fishy in
this sudden war-like sentiment. It is certainly not the spontaneous reaction of a civilized
people to a difficult international situation.
It would seem that there is an element
of desperation in the current campaign for
another war. Leaders of popular opinion are
the former isolationists and the "Hitler is
really a good guy" boys. It is difficult to
reconcile the pre-war attitude of Charles
Lindberg with his post-war support of the
"Get Tough" policy.
EDITORIAL SHARPSHOOTING
And the Lord help anyone who dares to
voice the opinion that maybe Col. McCormick
could be wrong. Any suggestion that there
may, with an effort to understand our "enemies", be peace in our time is answered by
a bronx-cheer, sometimes verbal, but most
often editorial.
Take for example the case of Henry
Wallace, editor, politician, martyr.
Wallace might not be the ideal of common sense but he definitely is the hope of the
common man. He is one of the few national
figures in the United States with enough
intestinal fortitude to preach a doctrine of
peace while the rest of the country's politicians are crying for war, or the next best
thing, the "Get Tough" policy. .
The end result has not been a happy one
for Wallace. He has been a target for practically every editor in the country. He has
been refused the use of public buildings
and radio time.
EVEN VANCOUVER
And recently, with its usual editorial
depth and perception, Vancouver's leading
newspaper (self-styled) dragged the spokesman for the common era over the coals. In
this particular article the writer, with a poor
sense of relatives, conferred upon Wallace
the title."The Chamberlain of America". *
Wallace's plea for understanding of a
former ally is compared with the futile effort
of a futile old man to call a good bluffer. The
chief distinction between the work of Chamberlain and Wallace is the fact that the former
took a popular stand. The English wanted
peace in 1938. Today, the Americans seem to
be ready for war.
The editorial ended with a comparison
to end all comparisons: "When Goebbels
tried it, the process was known as 'softening
up' the democracies".
That must be hard to take for a man
whose only crime against humanity is that
he dared to suggest the possibility of peace
in our time and is willing to sacrifice himself
in order to carry his message to the world.
Even the more thick-headed of the population must see the possibility of a war. This
possibility is something we can no longer
scoff at as "crackpot talk".
Irresponsible sections of society with far
more influence than their intelligence warrants are leading the Western World down a
path to a permanent blackout of civilization.
LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:
Dear Contributors:
The Daily Ubyssey is pleased to
print all letters received. There are,
however,  certain  stipulations.
(1) All letters must be signed.
The name need not be published but
must appear on the letter for our

(2) All letters should be typed and
double spaced. This Is not essential
but will ensure correct reproduction.
(3) No letter should exceed 200
words in length.
Thank   you,
The Editor
Dear Sir:
After attending the "Frosh" reception on Thursday evening I boarded one of the special buses. The seat
having ben occupied by a "Frosh"
with a purile mind, who had pocketed more donuts then he could devour, began to get rid of them by
pulling off pieces and distributing
them, with full strength of his right
arm, in all directions.
Naturally, retaliations followed, and
a fight (unprecedented in history)
broke out. "Operation donut?"
So there were too many donuts in
this world and the best way to get
rid of them was to use "donut ammunition" and thus give vent to
animal spirit.
Had this terminated at the end of
the journey the incident would not
have been so noticeable, but the fight
was continud on the No. 14 streetcar in full view of the public.
Is the University going to tolerate
a set of people who can only get
rid of glucose in this way whilst
Europe is starving?
It is not the two or three cakes
that count but the blindness (or
assumed blindness) of the facts of
today.
This, surely, can only gain UBC a
bad reputation, and in order to advert
this, may I express, through the
medium of this paper, my sincere
hope that this will not occur again.
Yours truly,
S.D.
Dear Sir:
Let's have the name of the barber
shop where our Ethiopian friend was
refused service so all fair minded
students can  boycott the  place.

UBC Extension Dept. Offers
Varied "Capsule Courses"
More than thirty-five "capsule college" courses covering
subjects ranging from the fine arts through business, psychology,
languages, and home or public planning, are offered in the
1947-48 series of night classes given by the Extension Department of the University of British Columbia.
First lecture of the year's series
will be on Business Finance—a course

The Children's Hour
By LES BEWLY
"... Bartley will have a fine coffin out of the white
boards, and a deep grave surely. What more can we want
than tnat? No man at all can be living forever, and we
must be satisfied ..."
Hand me down some of them white boards and a passel
of finishing nails, kiddies. And quit snivellin' and rubbing
your sweater sleeve acrost your eyes that way — there's no
shame in honest tears, but you're making us all feel bad.
For your dear old Uncle Jabez, as far as these columns and
you kiddies are concerned, is dead. Gone the familiar footsteps,
and the merry laugh. Gone the Mummery, gone Homer Quin-
cey, gone Moose Groin, Sask. All all gone; we'll hear them
nevermore. Almost nevermore, anyway. We may hear him
calling us again; but it will be a voice calling over the years and
out of the mists of the past; like the voice of Enrico Caruso on
the gramaphone.
He was just plumb wore out, I guess. Not wrote out; wore
the streets, adopted him,, and did all he could for him until 1940.
and he hand-raised all them characters, without a mother to
guide them. Way back in '38, he found that Chang Suey on
the streets, adopted him, and did al he could for him until 1940.
Chang turned out to be a devil, in spite of it all, and Jabez finally cornered him in the washroom of the Library, and finished
him off with a pot of boiling oil, or something, when he learned
of Chang's plan to wire every professor (even Walter Gage);
and touch the lot off. Then Uncle Jabez built the Mummery,
and raised another bunch of kids, including that loveable little
dope, Professor Elf Moonglow—remember him? Then your
Uncle Jabez want away for his appendix, and came back with
your little cousin, Homer Quincey.
THE END
Jabez never seemed to get his strength back after Homer
came, though he looked as good as ever. But one day, not long
ago, he laid down his typewriter, gave a little sigh, and said:
"I think I'll stop now."
And, so help us, he did. We shook him, pressed his hands,
took his pulse, tied a tourniquet on his leg and rolled his eyelid back; but it wasn't any of it any use. After nearly ten happy
years together, he literally up and died. And straightaway he
went to that Westminster Abbey where all the other great
writers are buried—the department of English—where he lies
today. ,
Maybe you never knew that "Jabez" is a Hebrew word
meaning: "he who gives pain". Well, he nearly killed us with
laughing.
Another white board, kiddies. This little old box has got to
last him a long time.   And a few more nails, boys.
That Jabez. He was no columnist at all, but a vaudevillian
of the printed word. And as a vaudevillian he had the most
incredible collection of imaginative pratfalls that ever shook
the boards on such an inky stage. And what a low cunning
for laughs, that Jabez had. It got so, toward the end, that when
he crawled out from under the curtain to come onstage in paragraph one, the audience voluntarily left their seats to lie down
in the aisles. They knew he would put them there anyway,
and they couldn't wait to go.
THE PRINCE OF WHIMSY
We used to call him the Prince of Whimsy, and he was.
He was also a tramp on a one-wheeled cycle; and he was a very
vulgar fellow indeed, at times. But as the prince, he took good
care to see that no one but himself got hurt in print. And to
the besi, of our recolleition, Jie never wrote a column with intent to bruise, though the opportunity was often present, and
he had a plentiful supply of lead type at hand.
A good many Ubyssey columnists have gone prospecting,
in the manner of their trade, for the bright iron pyrite of reader
interest, these ten years and more past. Many of them went
up into the high hills of philosophy and culture, armed with
pickaxes rifled from the toolboxes of Plato, Socrates, Winchell,
Lippman and Lardner. Old Jabez got himself a pie pan, squatted down on a sandbar by the backwaters of human interest,
and with his varicose veins aching, panned away steadily on the
same spot. He came out with more gold than most; enough
to retire on, anyway.
Vaudevillian and prospector, he had still another role; and
it is in this that we remember him best:
Self-appointed warrior in our happy, foolish, nostalgic little
game of inter-faculty battle (at once a bow to tradition and an
antidote to boredom). Jabez stood alone as the Artsmen's David,
confronting the horrid Goliath of Science. It was his sling
alone, at times, that separated his hapless, culture-weakened,
efete Artsmen brethern from the snorting, stomping, red-shirted
colossus of brute force, with its' fiver-shaking cries of "fee-fie-
foh-fum." But when the battle raged most fiercely, he no longer
resembled David, but rather Horatius at the bridge, shouting:
"Scienceman—the caulilower of modern education" while the
bodies piled up in front of him.
THE REDSHIRTS LOVED'HIM
Well, because the Sciencemen love a fighter (and because
Jabez immortalized them as the great lovers they in truth are,
in "Her Scienceman Lover") they forgave him his cuts, his
gibes, and took him to their rough-hewn hearts. Jabez could
walk through a Science pep-meet, trailing a red sweater m the
dust behind him, end emerge unharmed, if not unshaken.
Yes, we're burying your old Uncle Jabez today, kiddies.
As Mr. Synge suggests, there's no man at all can be living or
writing forever, and we must be satisfied, though it hurts. So
we'll knock him together this white board coffin, you and I, and
we'll bury him in a deep grave surely — for there's no grave
deeper than the heart.
He was a good man, that Jabez. To the best of our knowledge, his near-decade of service to the student body brought
him, by way of material reward, one bronze L.S.E. button, one
gold L.S.E. button, one large box of nuts, twenty-one Valentines,
and a seat of honour at a Publications Board Banquet. That
was all he wanted, really. It was his pleasure, he said, and he
had had fun.
Well kiddies, after he went away, we got to figuring. We
figured that, "Her Scienceman Lover" and other dramas apart,
Jabez had written, for the Ubyssey alone, about 165 columns.
And, if an average of 3000 student readers each grinned, chuckled or laughed three times per column, why, that's an awful
lot of grins, chuckles and laughs. Kiddies, that's 1,500,000
smiles. Stretched from ear to ear, enough to go around the
world.
FIVE CENTS A SMILE
Then we went around to the University Health Service and
asked them how much, medicinally speaking, a smile was worth.
And they laughed and said, oh, heavens, at least a nickel—the
price of a good kidney pill. So we multiplied 1,500,000 smiles
by five cents per smile] and in cold figures we estimate that old
Jabez contributed about $75,000 to his Alma Mater. Outside
of the provincial government, that about makes him our biggest
donor.
That gift has been spent, of course; but the memory lingers
on. And that memory will be part of all the other pleasant
memories you will have when you are old and grey—older
and greyer than you are now—of that time in your short, happy
young life when you walked down the Malls of old Potpourri.
And with that in mind, we would like to advance to all of you
a proposal.
It is this - that you and I get one of those tin doojiggers
with a hole in the top, and let everyone who wants to put a
nickel in, put a nickel in. Then, when all the nickels are in,
we'll count them up and see if we have enough money to buy
Jabez a bust of hisself. If we haven't we'll settle for a little
bronze plaque.
Then we'll go to the Council and say: Council, you've got
lots o campus space around here—how about giving us four
square feet of it, for a friend of ours. And when Council says
why we'll say, why, for us at Homecoming, 1966, and for the
Frosh of 1966 who cry Author, Author, at Her Scienceman
Lover.   Like this:
IN LOVING MEMORY OF
JABEZ
BELOVED CAMPUS HUMORIST WHO
FOR A FULL DECADE GAVE TO HIS
FELLOW MEN THE PRICELESS GIFT
OF LAUGHTER
Well, what do you say? If only ten of you write us to say
count me in, then we'll kick this thing off; and next Valentine's
Day, with the Varsity Band playing Smile, Damn You, Smile,
we'll unveil our very own memorial to Jabez. And to laughter,

DRUM MAJORETTES STEP OUT
Hard Working Mamooks
Spark Campus Activities
By CHARLES MARSHALL
Mamooks live up to their name.
About the campus these days, as always, the name Mamooks is a byword for energy in student activities, but few people
know why this odd-sounding title was given to one of the
university's busiest clubs.
Originating from a local Indian dialect, the word Mamook means "hard
worker," an apt name for the club
that provides the campus with every,
thing from ticket takers to drum
majorettes.
CHEER LEADERS
Formed more than 20 years ago
the Mamooks have consistently provided students with cheer-leading,
poster-painting and ushering to spark
nearly every type of campus affair.
One of the primary functions of the
club is to supply student organizations with any kind "of poster they
may require. In fact, no signs, other
than those carrying the familiar Ma-
i
mooks   mark,   may   legally   be   displayed  about  the  campu3.
Deep in their Brock Hall "rainbow room" the artists of the Mamooks wield their brushes, without
pay and displays which they produce advertise everything, from contests to exam timetables.
MAJORETTES  DAZZLE
Cheerleaders are an important
factor in college life everywhere.
At UBC it's the white-clad Mamooks
who spark athletic events with traditional yells and cheers.
And right behind the cheerleaders
are the recently-organized drum
majorettes who last year dazzled
spectators with glitter and glamor.
At the beginning of last fall the
majorettes, under the tutleage of Don
Herley, worked fevrishly and soon
amazed audiences with their baton
handiwork.
In their white satin uniforms and
plumed hafs the majorettes provided
a brilliant spectacle at football games,
basketball games and parades.
BEHIND THE SCENES
Last but not least on the roster of
Mamook activities are the many be-
perform. Ticket-sales, dance-decorating, and coat checking are all handled
by members of the Mamook.
No picture of the club would be
complete without a word about the
social activities which form important part in the life of every Mamook.
Two regular parties and many informal gatherings show the campus
that members know how to enjoy
themselves as well as work.
Fortunately for students, the makeup of the club is such that new members can always be absorbed and
with greater things being planned in
all fields for the '47-'48 term the
Mamooks are extending a hearty welcome to all.

Toronto Finds
High Enrollment
Toronto—Following a week of harrowing line-ups, registration at the
University of Toronto has been almost completed. Registrar A. B.
Femmell said no figures would be
available until October 9.
Indications are that last years registration of 17,071 would be equalled
again this year with heavier registration in senior years.
Veterans who formed the large bulk
of new undergratuates last year have
been absorbed for the most part and
although some have entered University this fall, the bulk of freshman classes will be composed of students entering directly from high
school.
OVERCROWDING
Professional faculities were again
bombarded by more applications than
they could handle and a number of
would-be engineers, doctors and dentists were forced to postpone their
plans for another year.
Students refused admission to professional faculities will be permitted
to register in Arts. Few applicants
have taken this alternative although
taking the Arts course would give
them a higher rating in professional
faculties.
Book Exchange
Breaks Record
All previous records for the sale
of second hand books have been
broken this year.
The Commerce Undergraduate Society, operators of the Book exchange,
report that "every day this year we
have grossed in excess of all last
year's operation."
Books, turned into the exchange,
immediately become exchange property, but are returned to their
owners after the closing date, October
1 if not sold. However, books not
current in present courses are donated to the ISS.
When books are sold, the exchange
deducts ten percent of the sale price,
half of which is donated directly to
the ISS, and the other half used to
defray   expenses.
The CUS encougages students to
use the exchange but reminds them
that closing date is Wednesday, October 1. chalk talk . . .

ANQTHER ONE FOR THE RECORD
As the comic strips declare so eloquently in their daily
sermons to the young, there's no rest for the wicked, nor sleep
for the beautiful. Lest there be any misunderstanding as to the
significance of the foregoing patter, your humble scribe is forced
to add that of late he has been bullied into accepting only the
first half of that trite maxim as the gospel truth. But that's life.
Again that haunting deadline nears, and your reporter bows
low his head as the unsheathed axe whistles down, 'Tis time
for another effort, and the printer beckons.
World Series Time Again
Judging by the coverage in practically every sports page
on the continent, the World Series has rolled around once
more, and eager student fandom will soon be deserting the
musty lecture room for smokier hovels around a radio.
Yes, the Yanks and the Dodgers are readying themselves
for baseball's biggest extravaganza, and for the richest prize
in the game. Predictions as to the outcome have been rampant
during the past few days, so in resignation your reporter too
will throw down the gage of battle and enter the fray.
Termed a "subway series", this year's edition of major
league rivalry sees New York and Brooklyn renew the feud
started in 1941 when the Bronx Bombers trounced the Bums
four games to one.
It's Nice For the New Yorker
Speaking of subway series, your reporter recalls that 1947
sees the ninth of such chummy affairs. The last, as most fans
will remember, was in 1944 when the St. Louis Cards eased
by the Browns in six games much to the consternation of the
latter who had won their first pennant in 44 tries. The first
hometown jamboree was in 1906 when the Chicago White Sox
trimmed the Cubs, again in six games.
And in between there were six such battles, of which five
were between the New York entries in the major circuits ('21,
'22. '23. '36. and '37). and the other that ill-fated series in 1941
between the Yanks and Dodgers.
We're in the mood now, and it makes an interesting pa stime
reviewing some of the "essential" statistics pertinent to the
present fracas.
Figures Don't Lie
Our records show that the Yanks have won the pennant
15 times since 1921, including 11 World Series triumphs, while
the Dodgers have taken only three flags and have been thwarted
in every attempt to capture the bigger prize.
Getting a little more general, the American League winner
has knocked off their senior circuit rivals 26 times, while the
Nationals have turned the trick only 17.
Well, fans that's the score. Statistics give this week's party
to Bucky Harris' crew from Yankee Stadium, and your reporter
goes out on a limb in declaring that he's all for figures, and so
he picks the Yanks in six games.

Modern Swordsmen
Meet On Campus
By RAY BATES
Chop, clank, crash—Timber!! That was the beginning of
fencing. When two mighty knights of old faced each other,
their one concern was to knock the armour off his opponent.
The knights would stand one
broadsword's length away from one
another. Knight A would swing his
sword at Knight B who would patiently stand there while it hit him,
At the same time, he would mentally
count his beads and pray for his
armour to hold. After the blow had
landed and providing his prayers
were answered, Knight B would return a lusty blow striking Knight
A who in his turn would be patient
and pray. At the end of a couple of
hours if toy hadn't killed one anoter
with blows from the sword, they
would drop dead from exhaustion.
SURPRISE,  SURPRISE
One day a hatter managed to get
into a violent argument with one
of the mighty "Goliaths". The brave
knight lifted his sword up over his
head to deal the fatal blow. Then
with a rrfight swing down it came—
swish—But what happened? The
Hatter moved! The knight was
shocked—he thought "Coward—h e
can't do that".
The hatter with naught but his
wits and a hat pin for defence, gulped
and charged. With a dainty desperate
thrust he placed the hat pin point
through a joint in the knight's armour. The knight staggered, clutched
his throat, rolled his eyes, and died.
Thus a new era began—t h e light
pointed sword.
The light pointed sword became
very popular especieilly in France and
was adopted as the weapon of the
nobility. This was he glorious guacly
age of swordsplay.
NOW ITS SPORT
In he 19h and the early 20th century gentlemen, in order to satisfy
their honr, used the weapon for
duelling purposes. In the 20th century, duelling was outlawed and in
its place the art of fencing as a
sport grew and up until the World
War  II  was still  growing.
The UBC Fencing Club is entering its third year upon the campus.
Providing all goes as has been planned, it should be a great year for the
revival of the "aristocratic" sport of
fencing.
There will be a meeting of the
Fencing Club in Arts 102, tomorrow
noon at 12:30 to discuss plans for the
year. All members and potential
members will be welcome.
'Birds Bow In Grid Opener
As Coyotes Triumph, 47-13
By AL HUNTER
Special to The Daily Ubyssey
CALDWELL, IDAHO, Sept. 27—Dear Alma Mammy—lt
ain't so bad that we lose our first conference game, 47-13, here
tonight, Ma; but it's the way we lose that hurts. It is really
discouraging Ma.
Take that second Idaho touchdown for instance. After they
score their first one, Ma, we decidfe to receive. This joker Ward
gets away a nice placement and the ball goes about 50 yards
in the air then rolls about 15 more and comes to rest in our
end zone.
■^ This is OK, MA, because according
to Hoyle we are supposed to take
over on our own 20. Well, we are all
standing around looking at the ball
lying  in  our end  zone waiting for
PLANKMEN PLAN
BIG YEAR,
LEAVE VOC
A revived ski club landed on the
campus last week when 26 members
of the competitive ski team got together under coach Peter Vajda to
break away from the VOC and re-
orm the Thunderbird Ski Club.
Under an elective executive, composed of Don Johnson, President;
Jack Leggatt, Vice-President and
team manager; and Al Bluechel,
Secretary-Treasurer; the club plans
to accomodate any active skier on
tlie campus who desires to participate
in both recreational and competitive
skiing.
In order to get the ball rolling, a
special meeting has been called for
this Thursday at 12.30 p.m. In Ap. Sc.
102. It is imperative that both'boys
and girls interested turn-out to this
meeting.
The separation of theSki Club from
the VOC heralds a new phase of
competitive barrel-staving at Varsity.
While shaven of its powers as moderator for competitive skiing at the
university, the Varsity Outdoor Club
will continue its mountain hiking
expeditions anl outdoor camping on
the peaks adjacent to Vancouver.

VARSITY GOLF SQUAD
SET FOR TOURNAMENT
Fore! Back all ye pushing, applauding galleries. Make way for this
year's   "driving"   UBC   Golf   Club.
Tuesday noon in Arts 101 is the
time and the place for the first big
organization meeting of the club. As
long as you know which end of the
putter is which, be you duffer or
low handicapper, if you are interested,
turn out.
UBC  CHAMPION
This meeting may be your only chance
to get into this Sunday's proposed
qualifying round for the tournament
to decide the golf champion of UBC.
Only the low sixteen golfers will
qualify for the championship flight
aid the handicap system will not be
used. The champion is tob e the
best golfer in the university and so
the person who has the lowest gross
score  will  be the  winner.
Last yeer, Bob Pcmmer, after a
terrific contest with Dick Hanley,
managed to winn the coveted distinction.
In the later flights, which will use
handicaps, the emphasis is being
placed on giving the students an opportunity to gain experience in com-
petative  match  play.
By GIL GRAY
TEAM  STRONG
Back from ast year is the complete team. It is comprised of club
president Ormie Hall, secretary Bob
Plommer, and Doug Bajus, who
played against Frank Stranahan this
summer at Pebbles Beach, Califrn-
ia, in the first round of the U.S.
Amateur Open.
But this is not all. Teamed with
these three will be the no less terrific Davie Dale, Dick Hanley, and
Hans    Swinton,    all    of    last   year's
SUPPORT NEEDED
"We have some big plans worked
out for this year and next summer,"
says Bob Plommer. "Of course the
success of these plans will have a
lot to do with the success of just
such events as this tournament that
is coming up. We must have the
support of all golfers on the campus."
So let's go, students! If you can
not be there in person and you are
really interested in entering the
tournament, call Bob Plommer at
Kerrisdale  2634-L  and  tell  him  so.
But try to make the meeting,
Don't forget: today, Tuesday at 12:30,
in Arts 101,
the referee—who is also standing
around looking at the ball—to move
it out to our 20 like the book says,
when this guy from the other team
by the name of Dunn comes hustling
up and flakes out on the ball.
The white class man comes to life
at this point, shoves his arms straight
up and gives the Coyotes a touchdown
Apparently the rules are changed this
year. But cripes Ma, what can you
do against stuff like that?
WERE FRUSTRATED
This sort of slows us down a little,
Ma, and before we can get set again
this coyote halfback, one Tom Win-
bigler, scores from close in on a
fake reverse.
(Winbigler's a good man, Ma. He
scored the first one too, after they
came through us for 80 yards following the  opening kickoff.)
Rich Gardner kicks the convert, and
we are getting a little bit peeved.
Slowly the lethargy acquired during
that 700 mile bus trip begins to
seep out though Ma, and just before
that half we start to play like a team
that all newspapers say we are.
Doug Reid and Murphy begin to
pound out the yards on the ground
and Fairleigh to Brewer begins to
look like a nice pass combination.
The line holds its end too, Ma, and
after 80 yards of struggle Fairleigh
tosses a payoff pass to Brewer who
is on the right side of the Coyote goal
line. Fairleigh adds the extra point
and we leave at the half on the weak
end  of a  20-7  count.
GREG'S   ULTIMATUM
Greg gives his own special version
of a familiar ultimatum during the
break, Ma. But by the time the fourth
quarter rolls around we were still
sitting on the pot and the coyotes
have  added  three  more  touchdowns.
Don Phelan gets the first one, Ma,
after we fumble close in. Gardner
makes good' the convert and right
en top of this Al Erstrom makes us
look like chumps with a smooth 60
yard touchdown gallop. Gardner
again kicks true and it is 34-7 going
into the final.
The fourth frame is hardly under
way, Ma, when Erstrom pulls another
solo act—this time an off tackle smash
from 25 yards out—and Gardner again
converts.
We are not complaining though, Ma,
because we realize we are playing
under adverse conditions. Crips, Ma,
these Coyotes have been playing
American since they were eleven
years old, they already had one game
under their belts this season and they
didn't just complete a 700 mile bus
trip.
We are still fighting in there in
the fourth quarter though Ma, and
finally get a brciik when Phil Nixon
recovers a fumble on the Coyotes
Coyote 30. That's all we need, Ma, and
after Cox, Brewer and Mitchell have
packed the ball to the Idaho three
yard line, Murphy plunges across
for our second touchdown.
But that is all we get, Ma, and
just before the gun, the Coyotes get
their sevnth and final major. Billy
Garber scoring on a 30 yard pass from
Herb   Immanake.
P.S. I known this is not our style,
