Provincial Police of the University area have reported that several
articles were stolen from the campus buildings last Sunday. The tool
shed at the Stadium was broken
Into, and several tools taken. One
lock was smashed on the Stadium
and some damage was done to one
of the barns In the University Farm
More people seem to be returning
to the old method of working their
way through college by preying on
the lockers of the men's common
room ln the Arta building.
One student had a rather rude setback the other day when he discovered that these pirates had the indecency to purloin everything from the
look to the books. The locker represented more bareness than the myth-
leal Mother Hubbard's cupboard.
The looks picked are of tho DL
variety whloh are supposed to be un-
plckable. To all those who have this
type of look we give this advice: Do
not leave anything of value in your
lookers overnight unless you wish to
go broke buying books.
To those members of the undergraduate class who have decided that
this stealing is an approved method
of working their way through thla
institution we have the following to
say: "Don't kid yourselves.".
You may at the present time get
away with it; you may have a somewhat twisted philosophy of life which
permits you to believe that the other
fellow should buy your books besides
having to be contaminated by your
company but your satisfaction will
not last long.
Many students cannot afford to
buy a second set of books and yet
they cannot continue their studies
unless they do.
It seems likely that the students
themselves will have to organise a
patrol to Inspect the locker rooms at
regular intervals.
Tho editorial policy of thn Ubyssey is determined and controlled by the Editor-in-Chief and the editorial board.
All matter appearing in the Ubyssey appears there because
it is approved by the Editor-in-Chief and the editorial board.
Opinions expressed in the form of editorials are those of the
editors; opinions appearing in signed columns are those of the
columnists,  not necessarily  those  of the  editors.
The editorial polloy of the Ubyssey is in no way committed to the Student Campaign Oommittee or to the
Student's Oounoil of the Alma Mater Society.
The Ubyssey has been given to understand that some members
of the  faculty and an  appreciable portion  of the  student body
believe the Ubyssey to be a tool of the Campaign Committee.
This misunderstanding must be corrected, and assert in refer-
once thereto that the Ubyssey is a free organ, not obligated in
any way to nny society, possessed of complete and absolute control
over all matter appearing in its columns.
Unless otherwise specifically stated, all facts, opinions, surveys, investigations or reports appearing in the
Ubyssey are compiled and edited by the board of control
of the Ubyssey, and are not subjeot to censoring or veto

It if the' avowed ideal and fixed purpose of the
Ubyssey to support whatever it may consider to be in
the best interests of the University, and to unoeasingly
Sublloise and attaok anything whioh in its opinion is
etrimental to the present efficiency or eventual sucoeis
of the University.

Mouse Celebrates
Tenth Film Anniversary
Trick Alms as we know them today, have a long and extremely
interesting history. Pew people realize, when they see Mickey
Mouse and Donald Duck flash on the screen of the local theatre,
that the celebrated Mickey and Donald are the result of a long
aeries of experiments, dating back to the early days of the film
Bud Fisher was ths first American
to produce trick flints. His work
was an imitation of that of Melle,
who waa famous for his "maglo
film." In this type of movie there
were no characters, and no plot, but
merely a series of isolated incidents.
These Incidents 'were represented
In the following manner: the artist
placed a blot of Ink on a sheet of
white paper, then using a pen, he
commenced to draw a picture with
the  Ink.
Before the film was given motion,
the hands and pen of the artist were
"blocked out," so that the audience
saw only, a blot of ink developing into a finished pictures.
In 1923, Fisher, using the latter
process, developed a character, "Colonel Hezallar," who became as popular In those days as Mickey Mouse is
today. Fisher used, as a basis for
the adventures of the worthy Colonel, the stories of Baron Munchausen.
The rise of Walt Disney to his
present popularity, marked the beginning of a new era in the development of trick movies. Disney made
his flrst pictures In 192S, but lt was
not until 1938 that he invented the
famous Mickey Mouse.
Shortly after the latter date, the
"talkies" came into being. The coming of sound film spelt doom to practically all the trick film artists, but
not to Disney. He had the good
sense not to ignore, nor to fight
sound. Rather, he attempted to
adapt the motions of hla trick Alms
to the new sound movies.
It was this fact that saved Disney,

Of New Club
Growing out of a desire for better understanding between Catholic
and Protestant students there was
formed at the beginning of the 1937-
88 session, an experimental study
group comprised of certain members of the Newman Club and the
Student Christian Movement.
Several meetings were held at
whieh an attempt was made to
eliminate some of the misunderstandings in regard to religious
beliefs and to determine attitudes
to sooial problems.
Interesting speakers Included a
Catholic priest who gave reasons tor
changing from the Anglican to the
Catholic faith, and an United Churoh
minister who answered the question, "Why am I a Protestant?"
Bo much benefit was reoeived by
those who attended this "Living
Creeds" gr.up last year that it la

Three meetings have been planned for eaeh term, to be held Sunday evenings at 8 pan. starting Oct.
M. The general topic for the Fall
term will be "Theoretical theology"
and for the Spring term, "Praetloal

and Winifred McLean, and by two
Catholic representatives still to be

Selection Of
Xmas Plays To
Include  Nero
The Player's Club has made Its
selection of plays for their Christmas programme.
There will be four short pieces,
Including i "Judge Lynch," "Three
Hundredth Performance," "One
Evening at Nero's" and "Good-
Night Please."
Try-outs for these will take place
shortly, and successful candidates
can then settle down to several
weeks of strenuous rehearsal.
Future plans of the Monro Pre-
Medical Society were outlined at a
meeting held ln the caf. on Wednesday last.
A committee of two-fold purpose
was formed; first, to find the prerequisites necessary to attend other
colleges after leaving the U.B.C; and,
secondly, to advertise the necessity of
establishing a faculty of Medicine
If this is impossible then as an
alternative the offering ot courses
designed to give the medical student
the equivalent of two years' medicine.
Plans for carrying on this campaign will be discussed further at a
future meeting of the club.
All the Science professors and
nearly 300 Soience students are expected to flock to the forthcoming
Science Smoker which will be staged
next Monday evening at 8 p.m. in the
Moose Hall on Burrard Street.
This Smoker, the first function of
its kind for Sciencemen, will be held
to Informally welcome all newcomers
to Applied Science. Crackers, cheese
and elder will play a prominent role
ln the proceedings.
An attractive program has been
planned and will unfold under the
capable direction of Bus Ryan, who
will act as Master of Ceremonies.
During the course of the evening
Dean Finlayson and Ally Allen will
address those present.
Wilf Williams with his Science
Orchestra will provide muslo to
accompany the singing of the
science  songs.
If you belong to Science and like
a good time without feminine frills
(or frails I) bring your pipe and prepare to make merry. Admission is
only 38c per head.
A Football Rally in the Crystal Ballroom and Turkey Dinner
in the cafeteria are two of the features which will make the 1938
Homecoming the most unusual weekend of entertainment ever to
have been held on the campus.
Evan ap Roberts, who is fathering a scheme for the most
spectacular Home-coming on the
Pacific Coast has reserved the
Crystal Ballroom for Friday
night, October 21. Two V-men
in Rugby outfits will sell tickets
at the gate into the ballroom at
only fifty cents apiece. Informality and the handsome visiting
team will be the motif for the
evening during whioh girls may
cut in on the Rugby Players
whenever they wish.
Undergraduates, let alone graduates, will not recognise the cafeteria,
Saturday Night following the Women's Undergrad Tea Danoe. Tables
covered with table-cloths and turkey will transform tits cafeteria into
a feasting hall, for a special Homecoming dinner with all the trimmings of a Roman holiday.
The parade whioh waa formerly
supposed to follow Saturday's Pep
Meeting has been metamorphlsed into a Float Parade of six oars preceded by a Publio Address car. and
police escort which will tour the
city Friday afternoon and advertise
Home-coming to all tbe graduates
who are grubbing in downtown
offices and who will grope out for
thirty hours of freedom and happiness. Home again on their own Varsity campus.
For the particular benefit of
the undergraduates, a tremendous
amount of entertainment la being
arranged for Saturday morning's pep
meeting. Ossy Durkln's Varsity
Band will make its debut with a complete set of orchestrations for all
the U.B.C. songs. The Band has
gone through a short period of intensive training to make it ready for
its performance.
As well as the Varsity Band the
Pep Club have made arrangements
for at least one other band to assist
with the stage presentation. With
three bands will be combined a skit,
put on by the Engineers. There Is
a rumor that the Sciencemen's choir
will sing "Caviar" and that there
may be a program of "The March
of Slime."
A short film under the direction
of the Film Society will be added to
the Player's Club performance of
"Interlude of War" for TheatVe Night
which lt Is rumored may include an
organized class reunion and a presentation of tho Alumni Association.
Class Vice-Presidents are holding
teas for out of town women during
the next few days, as is their usual
Class Executives are in charge of
these affairs, which are to be ln the
lower common room today and Monday. Ouests for today are women of
'41 and '42; and for Monday, '39 and

Two casualties, one which necessitated an emergency trip to Britannia, were the only marring factors
in the week-end trip to Britannia
Beach, held by the V. O. C. This annual Fall trip of the club was participated ln by 48 members and prospective members.
The hikers reached Porteau near
Britannia Beach by two trips by boat,
on Saturday afternoon. The evening
was spent around a bonfire.
On Sunday the entire club hiked
to Deek's Lake but only five of the
more hardy members succeeded ln
climbing Mt. Brunswick. These were
Cam and Don Stewart, Jack Cade,
Oscar Fulton and Alan Owyn. Eleven
lests ambitious climbers reached
Deek's Peak.
Sunday evening the group found
relaxation in a dance held in the
school house.

lazy   and   therefore  comfortable   day. T'»ro

Thieving is a bud thing. It says in the ten commandments
that you should not do it. But if nny have failed to read the said
ten commandments, then the Almn Mater Society says that you
should not covet your neighbour's coat, nor his money, nor his
books, nor his strip, nor his locker's lock, nor any other thing
that is his.
But it is beyond a point of humour when petty stealing
becomes as rife as it is at the present time on this Campus. It is
a sign that there are persons in attendance at this institution who
have no right to a university education. They have no honour, no
sense of fairness, and less right to live than a typhoid germ in
False Creek.
If this dishonesty increases it will be necessary to sec that
a patrol of locker rooms is set up, and that the cheap crooks are
brought to justice, ultimately to be expelled from the University
of British Columbia.
The flrst Varsity Time Program which went over the air last
Friday evening was a distinct improvement over programs of
former years but it did in ono respect grossly misinterpret the
activities of the student body. Five minutes was devoted to campus
news and unfortunately the entire of this time was given over
to sport flashes. The result wns that a large number of listeners
were  given the  impression  that  U.B.C  is  a  Football university.
Although Athletics do hold a place on the campus and should
by all means be considered in the radio news broadcasts they
represent only a minor portion of the student interests. It seems
unfortunate that such emphasis should bo placed on this aspect
of student life to the exclusion of items considering student government, literary and scientific clubs, academic achievement,
which are more representative of the trends of student thought.
A cordial invitation is extended to
those interested ln a panel dlsousslon on "Civil Liberties," taking

For two or three weeks, if you re
member correctly, this column was
of a very serious nature. Then the
Sr. Ed. came along 'last week and
told me to be funny. Remember that?
And the result was apparent on
Tuesday. In anticipation, I warned
my readers that probably I'd be told
to be anything but funny this time,
and I was right. Proving that I'm
not funny. And also proving that
there should be at least one good

It seems that ln spite of everything
—and by everything I mean Campaign Committees and Advisory
Councils and a first rate football
team and talks with the government
and so on—it seems that poor little
U.B.O. Just can't quite do the things
that should be done when they
should be done.
Or maybe it's because of everything. Things have been moving
pretty rapidly this year. Our new
Council has had a tough time of lt,
one way and another. The Council
Members have had so much on their
minds that they just can't keep track
of time. Or of things.
Not so long ago there was a very
Idealistic little piece ln this strip
about the bonfire. It was too idealistic. A very pretty little plan was
hinted at where everything was to
be smooth and heart-breaking, where
Soph and Frosh would throw fraternal arms around fraternal shoulders
and shed tears for the Alma Mater
as the embers flickered out. We all
know how wrong I was. The fraternal
throwing was not of arms, but of
burning gasoline.
Be patient. I'm trying to make a
Throughout that bit of Idealism,
one word was repeated several times.
That word was Tradition. Also mentioned was School Spirit. It was all
very beautiful, but very useless. Tt, is
useless to mention Tradition, or to
hope that such an abstract quantity
can ever become part of the general
atmosphere on  this Campus.
Here,  then,  is  the Beef.
If ever a University had a tradition, and if there ever was a tradition worth carrying on, and if there
ever was a tradition that became
more serious and awesome as time
went on, we had one ln the Cairn
Ceremony. I say "had" for obvious
reasons. The Cairn Ceremony has
gone   the   way   of   the  Snake-parade.
You Freshmen, of course, won't
know what the Calm Ceremony is.
Naturally. The Cairn Ceremony was
for you, and was for the purpose of
introducing you to our one lasting
tradition. How could you know what
lt ls? You shall be told.
It's merely a bit of rather interesting history- History of U.B.C. that
may be read in last year's Handbook.
Thus: Eliminating the earlier details,
we find that ln 1910 the present site
of U.B.C. at Point Orey was granted
to the University. That was the site.
It was covered with trees, rocks, wild
animals and probably Indians, and
wasn't much of a place to do any
constructive academic work.
It took a long time to make arrangements for all the buildings that
we have today, and it took even
longer to build und occupy them. So
in the interim, a temporary site was
located on the grounds now occupied
by   the  Vancouver   Oeneral  Hospital.
When the move was finally made
from Fairview to Point Orey in 1925,
the jubilant students tore what rocks
there were oil the old buildings and
carried them, one by one, all the way
to Point Orey, They walked along
with heavy stones on chafed and
bleeding shoulders, chanting a
marching song which contained the
initials U.B.C.
Those stones, my friends, were ihe
stones that went into the .building of
the Cairn. The Calm—for you probably don't even know that—is the
ivy-covered hump on the south end
of the center mall, between the bus
stand and the science building. Take
a look at It some time.

Oovernors announced the gift to the
University by Safeway Stores, Ltd.
of twelve head of beef cattle and,
together with them, for purposes of
experimental feeding, a $300 set of

This brings to light the possibility
that Fraser Valley farmers may soon

These twelve head were picked
from a herd of thirty-eight which

Yes, U.B.C. has always been campaigning for something or other.
From the time of that first campaign
for a new location, there have been
movements every two or three years
for more buildings, more professors,
more money, a Union Building, and
now for lower fees.
For that very reason, the present
campaign should not have occupied
the minds of the committee to such
an extent that the Cairn Ceremony
was forgotten. Every year this impressive ceremony has been held
early in November, In commemoration of the first big Campaign staged
by students of the University. Somehow, it seems to me that ln the light
of recent happenings the Cairn Ceremony should have taken a more Important place than ever before In the
Freshman initiation.
But a busy council, and a busier
Initiation committee, failed to bring
the Cairn Ceremony to light this fall.
They actually forgot it. Forgot about
our one and only really lasting Tradition.

f Friday, Ootober 14, 1938
When tradition goes by the board
in favour of progressive action, it is
news. It ls not often that
AT LAST, such a thing happens,
but perhaps that is why
we appreciate it so much when lt
does occur. This year sees a formerly
busy Players' Olub transformed from
a collection of willing but unoriginal
student actors to a group ot energetic, thinking human beings.
Previously the Plays, Christmas
and Spring, were chosen by the Advisory Board. Students had little or
no say in the matter, and virtually
had to sit and complacently accept
any and all suggestions from the dictating Advisory Board. The result was
apparent in the plays that were presented.
Last Christmas there were four
plays, three of whloh were of very
doubtful popularity, and one of which
was an outstanding success. It is with
shame that we have to recall that
the most successful production was a
'mellerdrama.' Now we have no peculiar dislike for suoh presentations,
but lt ls a curious thing to us that
the most popular play should be of
such a type.
It is not Intellectual snobbery that
prompts such a comment, but lt is
not an unknown fact that the modern
play library should be adequate to
produce something of a little loftier
calibre. But it was, so to speak, a
fortunate thing that the Players'
Club did put on such a farce, for the
audience was well past the point of
boredom as a result of the Influence
of the two heavy tragedies that ponderously preceded the melodrama Itself.
This year, with the student executive making the choices of Plays we
see  hope for   the
BLOOD future.     Although
TRANSFUSION. there Is a tragedy,

Ontario. This may appear to be a
provincial outlook, but we believe
that a spot of undiluted enthusiasm
ln connection with our local university schemes would be an unparal-
lelled aid.
Here is a suggestion ... it is worth
a great deal ln theory, but will be
unheeded In practice, we suppose.
Could the amazing profits from the
many cabarets not be turned over to
the Brock Memorial Building Fund?
If such a thing were to happen, the
Sororities could righteously feel that
they had contributed something more
to the Campus than a new rushing
system, and nice clothes.
The other day we heard that there
was to be a debate between this Institution of ours

DOWN UNDER. of Australia. We
pricked up our
ears and determined to attend same,
(not the Australian university, by the
way). Accordingly we dropped in at
the Big House, and found the verbal
struggle well under way. No apologies for our tardiness; we had been
having a very satisfactory argument
not far away I
There was only one thing that was
noticeable about the speakers, and
that was that the Australians were
better than the Canadians,—no derogatory insinuations Intended—,and
better chiefly in one respect. They
were able to make humourous remarks that at least were relevant to
the discussion at the time. It brought
the blood to our heels to hear one of
our speakers make a weak attempt at
wit by borrowing a Jest from the Digest of a few weeks past, and presenting lt to the persons of the audience apparently for no other reason
than to distract their attention from
the points that he was falling to
'drive home.'
Incidentally we thought that we
should let you know that we just had

for If he had tried to make the sound
effects fit the characters and motions
of hts films, he would have been
ruined, as were so many of his contemporaries.
Disney's first films of the Mickey
Mouse type were extremely fantastic. The characters were allowed to
do anything within the scope of the
artist's imagination, anything from
turning umbrellas Into aeroplanes,
to making a ladder out of a cat's tall.
But of the latter years Disney has
modified his technique, giving to
the characters a more human and
realistic quality.
In "Snow White and the Seven
Dwarfs," this humanising may be
seen very easily, as all the actions of
the characters are essentially those
of human beings, and all the traits
of human nature are clearly portrayed.
The European point of view in regard to trick movies, differs greatly
with that of this  continent.
U.B.C. students will be able to
see this for themselves, in the Mm
"Love Parade," showing in the
Auditorium at 7 p.m. on Friday,
October  14th.
The director of "Love Parade,"
Lublvitch, Is one of the few European directors to retain the European point of view even after coming
to Hollywood. His particular skill
lies ln his method of combining music with light comedy film. As he
takes the sophisticated continental
viewpoint in regard to sex, his music ls generally of the luring type.
He iu remarkably free from the
"Puritanism" which characterises so
many of the American directors. For
a time Lubivltch left the position of
director, and became a producer, but
he haa once more taken his former
directorship, and his followers can
now look forward to more pictures
of the calibre ot "Love Parade."

of the season and his presence will

point where It will be as good if not
better than last year's "wonder

"Waddle" Robertson who will automatically fit into a spot on the U.B.C.

when Howie McPhee returns to the

Despite the two successive
set-backs this year, the U.B.C.
fighting next Saturday when
they take on the battling Barbarians from across the inlet.
Both teams are minus a victory
this year and it will be a fight
to get out of the cellar tomorrow.
Last Saturday, the "seconds" were
overwhelmed by New Westminster
after losing three of their men, Bone,
Billings, and Pyle bending before
the onslaught of 20O-lb. scrum-men,
but this week-end the students
promise to spread a little of their
own homicide when they trot out
on the turf of the Varsity Stadium.
The scrum is shaping up to be one
of the fastest breaking in the league,
and balance their lack of weight
with a speedy dribbling attack that
runs the opposition ragged. The
names of Pyle and Bone should be
especially mentioned here. Many experts believe that Don Pyle should
catch a berth on the Varsity regular
squad. Don Is ths most persistent
pig-skin chaser seen in these parts
for quite some time, and had a try-
out for the first team this year Just
falling by inches.
In the baokfleld the emphasis ts on
the kicking, with two Jstar booters
filling the air with point-laden pigskins. Both Robinson and Lamb are
oapable of pulling off long penalty
kicks, Robinson proving himself
with a brilliant 80-yard penalty goal
last Saturday. Ormte Hall of the
three line ls a whizz at onslde kicking,   his   direction   being  impeccable.
Replacements may be brought up
from the frosh team to fill the gap
left by those Injured In last week's
game. If so, Oordle Pyle and Oordon Wallace will have the inside
track. Both were members of last
year's high-school champion team,
and starred ln last week's encounter
bet-ween the frosh, and the Varsity
thirds. Pyle with two and Wallace
with three tries proved the most
potent of the frosh team, and their
only rivals would be Bingham ahd
Clement, both men also on the first-
year squad.
Just about the fastest thing on two
feet In this part of the country,
Olympic sprinter Howie McPhee will
be out tomorrow to carry the little
oval for the Varsily rugger squad
when they tackle the New Westminster team at Brockton Point.

Thursday, Varsity's victorious gladiators returned from the most successful prairie invasion ever undertaken by a football squad from this
University. It is all history now how
the big Blue and Oold (maybe some
black, too) snowed under a valiant
Alberta team to the tune of several
touchdowns, converts, and field goals.
But not content with this massacre
the tribe moved en masse over the
wiid prairie to neighboring Saskatoon
where once more the battle raged.
This time however a different story
was recorded. The Huskies were bent
on downing these 'Birds who made
such a sorry mess of Alberta's Golden
Bears, so It was only after the bruls-
ingest battle that the Huskies were
defeated. And these same green-
bedecked laddies most definitely assert they will be able to cope with
aerial attacks when they journey to

However as we were saying the conquering heroes have returned. And ln

this minor setback the gang are all
