 Tim Buck
By Council
"Resolved that the Social
Problems Club should be allowed to bring Tlm Buck on
the eampus", will be debated
at a special Parliamentary
Penan session today at 12:30 In
Arts IN. Defending the reso-
isjtfea will be Cliff Greer and
Bee Prtttie, and taking ,the
negative will bo Stew Cham-
ben and John MacKensle.
AMI President Ted Klrkpatrlck eald yesterday that the
resuU of the debate would "un-
doubtodly affect the policy
adopted by the Student CouncU" concerning the proposed
invitation of the LPP leader.
Tim Buck has been refused permission to address students at the
University of British Columbia.
The request to have the former
general secretary of the Canadian
Communist Party, now national
loader of the Labor Progressive
Party, come to the campus was
made by Iho Social Problems Club.
It was turned down at a Student
Council meting Monday night.
"Ho was refused because wo
thought he would bo detrimental
to tiie present gym drive and to
the good of the university as a
whole," declared AMS president
Ted Kirkpatrick.
"We felt that the university
would be forwned on by presenting
such a man."
He aided out the student coun-
cil wsa "bound over" to restrict
poUtieal activities on the campus
as a result of a student plebiscite
taken last your.
(In the plebiscite referred to,
students voted against formation
of poMtical clubs at UBC.)
Asked if members of other political parties would also be refused,
Kirkpatrick said each application
must be passed individually by the
council and that no over-all policy
could be laid down.
"You know how these speakers
get up and have the girls in tears
and the speakers fighting among
Commented Gordon Martin, Social Problems Club chairman. "Tlm
Buck has appeared on other Canadian campi, including McGill, and,
so far as I am aware, they have
not been "frowned on", nor has
their good name suffered."
Referring to last year's student
plebiscite, Martin said it showed
only that UBC students did not
"favor" actual political clubs on
the campus..
"Any attempt to make it mean
more i.s to try without justification
to transmute personal opinions
into restrictive general rules for
the whole campus," ht declared.
"The important consideration is
that the Student Council attempts
in this matter to set itself up as a
guardian against 'dangerous
thought.' To refuse permission
on such grounds is an act of unwarranted political discrimination.
Penfield Urges
School Loyalty
Speaking to the pre - medical
students Tuesday, Dr. Wilder G.
Penfield urged them to give careful thought to the planning of
their medical school.
"In loyalty to your school/' said
Or. Penfield, "it is most Important to make sure your professors
make a good Job in planning. Begin with an adequate budget."
Introduced by Dr. N, A. MacKenzie, Dr. Penfield gave an interesting account of medicine from
the days of Abraham, mentioning
several peculiar treatments used
in ancient times. Dr. Penfield
laughingly stated that "there Is
nothing now ln medicine."
Speaking of his own work as a
reuro-aurgeon, he showed several
slides taken during a brain operation. He said that although scientific knowledge had pusheo
back horizons, "we have learned
nothing about man's mind or soul
by physical means."
Bob Wilson, pre-med president,
thanked Dr. Penfield for his interesting and inspiring address."
Sales In the bond drive have
now reached 1210,910, and the
commission realised by the
AMS for the Gym Fund has
topped $526.
Sales on the campus close
Saturday noon.

Vets On Spot;
No Dual Grant
Many agriculture students received an unpleasant surprise on
Tuesday when Mr. R, E. Horafleld,
district DVA supervisor, explained
the new regulations in connection
with Veteran's Land Act benefits.
On October 1, the regulations
were changed to the effect that
students completing a degree
course in agriculture would not
benefit under terms of the Act.
Veterans taking "occupational"
course of short duration will
be eligible for benefits under the
Land Act.
Mr. Horsfleld stated that DVA
had been widely criticised for its
former policy of allowing the $6,000
loan aqd Land Act benefits to
degree students, where as some
vets received only the short course

Dean Clement regretted that students would only have two days
in which to make a decision as to
which line of action to follow. The
283 students who are affected are
"on the spot", the Dean said.

"Intellectual leadership in the
realm of political and human relationships all too rarely comes

In the furthering of this endeavor to promote the welfare of mankind through the medium of higher education, the curricula itself

students, he continued, graduate
from University without a degree

On The Wagon .. .
Several recent letters-to-the-editor have
suggested that the Alma Mater Society
could do something very worthwhile by
making a sizeable donation to Vancouver's
Community Chest.   And well they might.
Unfortunately, and to Vancouver's shame,
the Community Chest drive for funds has
fallen short of the objective which will be
required to maintain the organization's
many essential services in 1947.
Fortunately, despite the B.C. War Memorial Gymnasium campaign, it is possible
for the Alma Mater Society to make a donation to the Chest large enough to be of great
help in reaching the objective.
But that possibility depends largely on
quick action by a group of people who are
meeting pnce again today to try to make a
decision—namely, the representatives of the
Greek Letter Societies.
The link between their decision and any
donation made by the Alma Mater Society
requires considerable explanation, which,
opce offered, should provide a firm basis for
The Student Council hag decided, and
rightly so, that the major efforts of the Alma
Master Society should be directed at present
towards making a success of the current
Gymnasium Fund Drive. At the same time,
and again with many reasons, it has also
determined   that   other   worthy   projects
should not be lost sight of. One such project is the Community Chest, and therefore
the Council is faced with the problem of
doing everything possible to help the Gym
fund ancl yet still trying to aid the Chest.
Ten days ago, the Council members realized that a good solution might be arrived
at if the proceeds 'from this year's Mardi
Gras were turned over to the Community
Chest. They seemed to feel, and the Ubyssey supports their supposition, that it would
not be illogical for the AMS to seek money
for the Gym fund and then later give money
to the Chest. The supposition is based on
two major premises—that as both aim to
Euild a Better B.C. the two projects are
logically related; and that it is well for the
AMS to retain the Mardi Gras as a function
dedicated to raising money among the students for charitable work outside the university.
And yet, the Greeks' officials have still
not been able to say the word that will make
it possible to bring that about. From samplings of opinion gathered at two indecisive
meetings of those officials it seems quite apparent that they favor jthe plan.
They art matting again today to try to
make the official decision. If executive timidity ia all that bars the way, it is to be hoped
that bravery will be order of the day at the
meeting this noon   Time's a-wastin'.
The Wassail Bowl
In the letters column of the Province
last week, a very practical man aakad some.
very practical questions. 'Why doesn't someone tell all those veterans at UBC that a
university education isn't going to get them
all white-collar jobs with high pay?' he
asked. 'A lot of veterans are being, deluded;
they are spending their valuable credits and
meagre savings; they are sure to be dis-
The Bowl agrees with the practical man—
to a point. Those who come to university to
get nothing but letters after their name and
good jobs may quite possibly be disap*
pointed. It may be poetic justice, but they
deserve it.
Too many people, bred as they are in
a grasping and cynical world, look upon
university as a gay social whirl at best, or a
tortuous path to an executive vice-assistant's
desk, at worst. It's a shame to look upon the
university, a lighthquse on a very black
sea, as nothing more than a Pleasure Club
or a Trade School.
For the university is primarily a place
to do scientific and social research; it is a
place to learn to think, to think logically,
tc form fair opinions, to respect different
opinions, and to understand why they are
different; it is a place to meet other people,
to trade opinions and viewpoints, to influence and to be influenced; it ia a place to
open the mind and shut the mouth.
It is rather unfortunate that students
have to concentrate more on job-training
than on learning. It may explain, however,
why so many of Canada's leading men of
politics, commerce, and industry are narrow,
prejudiced, and selfish, despite their university degrees.
The university doesn't consciously teach
narrowness, prejudice, and selfishness; it
merely gives one the opportunity to specialize in his "life's work", which means, as one
professor clearly put it, the,opportunity "to
learn more and more about less and less."
In the rush to specialize, we forego the
great opportunities for pleasure and moral
value that a liberal arts education can provide. The beauty and uses of philosophy,
history, literature, the arts, the social
sciences, are forgotten. Studies in these fields
give the mind, a broad foundation and a
firm framework on which to build the most
important of structures—life.    •
Those who think of university as a means
may very well be disappointed; those who
treat it as an end, can never be.
Letters To The Editor
Dear Sir:
A meeting of fraternity and sorority members took place on Monday to discuss what should be done
with the proceeds ot last year's
Mardi Gras. Since the Red Cross
does not require the money lt re-
mainded to be decided whether It
should be given to the War
Memorial Drive, the Community
Chest, or split between these is the
best plan; it is my concern, however, to expose a deplorable state
of mind amongst certain of the students at the meeting.
An ex-fraternity man arose and
none too politely asked, in effect,
can you give me one good reason
why people from out of town
should give to Vancouver's Community Chest? It is tragic that
such narrow-mindedness be present at a University; it speaks HI
for the man who uttered it; it
speaks ill for the future of the
community in which he is going to
live; and it speaks ill for the future
of humanity on this planet.
The representatives of the Com-
muntly Chest present gave the fellow many good reasons why he
should donate to the Vancouver
Community Chest. If this ex-
service man was a "logical" fellow he should also ask—can you
give me one good reason why I
should shoud give to the War
Memorial Drive? In both cases the
money will be used to the ultimate
advantage of mankind ln general.
It. seems to many that money given
to the Community Chest, which
is behind in its drive for funds,
will be of greater advantage to the
people of Canada than money given
to the War Memorial; be that as
It may, it is just too bad that we
have an ex-service man, of all people, mouthing such a pretty
What was he fighting for? Was
he not striving for a decent,
healthy way of life for mankind,
hs opposed to Nazi slavery? And
dees not the Community Chest help
very much to establish a decent,
healthy way of life amongst those
who otherwise could not alford
so to do? What that ex-service
man did during the war is not
known, but it is obvious that he
is now successfully fulfilling one
of the lower positions of the narrow, selfish, post - war zombie.
,   s L. John Creery
Dear Sir:
Is it not time that the students
of this University made a combined
effort in support of Vancouver's
Community Chest campaign?
Somehow I do not think that helping the unfortunate of the city is
going to rob the War Memorial
Gym Fund seriously. One can and
must, of course, contribute to the
gym fund but can one Ignore the
very pressing and immediate requirements of the Community
Chest, whose present drive is
floundering thousands of dollars
short of its basic needs?

Retrospect and Prospect
Early in the history of this present century were heard Uie first
feeble rah-rah's issuing from the
throats ef the infant Thunderbird
tribe. The tribelands at the time
were situated out in Fairview. Af
the Tribe increased in number and
the Totles became larger and more
vociferous and more skilled in the
ways of the world, the faint huz-
zahs became deafening roars worthy of such a name as Thunderbirds.
These roars grew until' the Great
White Fathers saw fit to remove
the Tribe from its filthy surroiu.
dings out to a proper reservation
in West Point Grey. That the
lands had been swiped from the
Musqueams did not worry the
Their cries were quieted for a
while, but not for long. The husky throats began to work again
when the Tribe began to think
that the little Toties needed a
place to play. The gymnasium waa
built and the cries were sllenceo
once more. Another bellow and
the Stadium came Into being. And
yet another howl and Brock Hall
was built In memory of one of the
Great WhUe Uncles of the Tribe.
The Armory was built, followed
by one hell of a big roar from the
Tribe-big Totie and little Totie
alike — joining in with equal annoyance. However, now that the
blood that supplied the foundation
for this edifice is being used to
steep the tribesmen in culture ana'
learning, the howl has died down.
Present Tense, Plural
While the Armory was belns
built.many of the braves of the
Tribe left the shores of t their
homeland and spent some time
"working abroad." With the business at hand completed for the
time, at least, great war canoes
brought the Totie warriors home
again; the great glory they won
abroad, when added to the Tribe's
already impressive war-Totem,
produced a structure so high that
modern oxygen service is being
supplied to the Thunderbird so
that he may keep his plpe-of-
peace alight.
The returning warriors havt
brought new ideas back with them
but their very numbers have increased the population of the
Tribe to an extent where the
very   young   Totles   have   great

With the increase in population,
the Tribe has raised its collective

whoop for new playgrounds. Thu

coming through with much needed
additions to the Tribes village:
two new long-houses; the physics
building and library, are under
construction; many new teepees
have been provided and squeezed
into every open space around tht

Better yet, the Great White

A Note On Tribal Emblems
When, with the passage of not
too many twelve-moons, the elder
members of the Tribe who have
wandered far from the homeland
return to the great Potlatch, they
will see stretched around them a
great heritage—a heritage which
they helped provide.
There will be a great long-house
for the training of the Tribe's
medicine-men; another great long-
house will house those who are
destined for the carving of tht
Tribe's Totems; yet another great
long-house or series of long-nous-,
es will actually house the Tribe;
and somewhere in one of the off-
corners will be the long-house
for those who are learning to construct long-houses.
Perhaps, but the Tribe's philosopher's are not too sure on this
point, the hideous little teepees,
undoubtedly necessary when constructed but by now just a nuisance, will have been removed, and
then the yhole Thunderbird
trlbeland will be a great memorial
for the mighty ancestors of a vigorous race.
The great long-houses will be so
buih that they will withstand the
test of time and will remain sa
much an emblem to the glories
and hard work of the Tribe as the

congratulating the branch on its
phenomenal growth during the
past year, MacNlcol expressed
confidence that it could hold, and
probably Increase, its lead.

their clear thinking and sound
recommendations, concluding his
address with a request for submission of suggestions to be taken
to Ottawa. Members elected to ask
Dr. G. M. Shrum, Prof,. W. H.

to serve as honorary officers oi
the branch, in recognition of their
untiring efforts in solving the student-veteran's many and variec
problems. A motion to have cheques deposited to the student-vets
credit In the bank nearest

such an arrangement would only
lead to further delays to the changes of address. Entertainment will,

Mony o! ua will remember the great trips that the
Thunderbird hoop squad made last year to the land south
of tiie border when they were playing Conference tilts. Many
more, however, have never known the terrific experience of
watching a game in one of the modern gyms that are scattered
rather liberally throughout the States.
But the same spirit that prevails at a hoopla contest is
even more in evidence at a grid battle. The Yankee kids
go in for American football in a big way.
Naturally this means that they know how to add all the
color that traditionally goes with a college football tiff. But
then UBC hag done remarkably well in getting the idea cf
what makes a football game a typical coUege fracas.
The Spectator Hat A Role
Of course, many people frown on the practice of booing
at a football game. Unfortunately, this has been done in the
past, but not very often.
According to those in the know, booing is a sign of ignorance on the part of the spectators. Admittedly, it's Just a
little hard to control yourself when you see 200 pounds of
man sticking his knee in a hero's stomach as the former decides to rise from his prone position on the gronud. In spite
of all this though, tt seems that there is still no place for
booing at a football game.
Next Saturday, the local heroes, still winless, but getting
better every game, make their first trip of the year, when
they travel to Tacoma to meet College of Puget Sound. TWs
is a chance that we really can't afford to miss.
Opportunity It Knocking
This is the time that we should get down to see an
American football game played in its home grounds. There's
just something about those American games that make them
extra exciting.
In the first place, we'll see how a crowd can be handled
by a few cheerleaders. Everyone will be yelling for their
team for a whole sixty minutes. We'll see everything that
goes into a typical coUege footbaU tilt.
The Jokers are in there again to organize a car parade
to make the jaunt down to Tacoma. They plan to leave at
7:00 a.m. on Saturday morning from the South end of the
PatuUo Bridge.
Now that we have someone to organize the situation,
what more could be want? A car you say. Yes that is a
point. But if you talk it up enough, it should be possible to
talk one of the fellows into taking the gang down for the
We Can Show Off, Too
Because you see, when we get there, we'll have something to show the kids at Tacoma. We'll be able to show
them that the same high college spirit goes with our team
that they have down there.
What's more, we can do them one better. Imagine a
University that takes their own band, their own Majorettes,
as well as their own cheering section to a footbaU game as
far away as Tacoma.
All we need now is a little help from the weatherman,
and a slight lowering of resistance on Dad's part so that we
can get a car, and then—we're off to tiie football game!
L-n's show the folks down Tacoma way what kind of
spirit the Blue and Gold gridmen of UBC have behind them.
Besides, Tacoma might be an interesting town!!

Inter A, Senior B
Hoopmen In Loss
Inter A Sophs went down fighting Tuesday night at King Ed. Gym
before the assaults of Tookes Shirtmen. Led by Don Mackay, the
Tookes squad galloped to a lead
early in the game by virtue of
many foul shots gained at the expense of the Varsity quintet.
Don Mackay of the Tookes team
.scored 22 points against UBC, a
large share of this total being
chalked up on free throws.
The Sophs attempted a roll off
and o nthroughout the game but
got bogged down by the Tookes
Trev Shaw was high man for
the Varsity crew with 6 points.
Four of these were made from almost centre floor, both shots parting the hemp neatly.
According to Manager Len Cut-
bill, Dah boys shud do better
next time I tink, Duh, Yuh, dey
shud do better."
With a little more concentration
on snapping up rebounds, and better offensive play, the Sophs have
a good season ahead.
By virtue of last quarter onslaught, New Westminster Sr. B.
hoopsters inflicted a 27-18 defeat
on the Varsity B's at John Oliver
on Monday night.
In the final frame the Royal
City squad out-scored the campus
quintet 11-3. spurred on by Urqu-
hart who accounted for twelve
points of the 27. Frank Mylrea led
the Varsity point getters with a
big 4, and, though the score-board
read 15-15 at the end of the third
quarter, the students were unable
to stem the final flood.

Novel Fish And Game
Club Of Interest To Many
When a number of UBC students with one strong, common interest get together, it seems that the only solution is
to form a club' on the campus.
Such is the case for varsity's newest organization, the
Students' Fish and Game Association.
Brain child   of Ralph   Shaw-        ——————————
former president and organiser of
the Calgary Junior Fish Game
Association — the newly formed
group boasts a present membership of approximately 50 members.
Quite a number of UBC's embryo club members are not new
to the feel of a full choke Winchester pump when a big pintail
drake jack knifes in mid sir.
Some of varsity's outdoormen
go in for the thrill received when
a four point buck mowitch shows
himself along a timber ridge.
Others prefer the anxiety registered as a 20 pound Steele clips
oft the last five yards of backing.
But, whether students are surf
casters, sea fishermen,' duck and
goose hunters, steelhead fishermen or river crawlers, they will
all have a chance to benefit
through the club's various subdivisions.
Some of the committees to be
formed will handle such affairs
as turkey shoots, fly tying schools
unci skeet instruction.
Such British Columbia game experts as Jimmy Poole, Mc and Mc
fly mentor; Cliff Welch, Harkley
and Haywood fishing potentate;
and Henry Christensen, Lower
Mainland field trial dog trainer,
will be asked to explain the intra-
caciey of their trades to the club
Camera instruction, pest drives
and a game dinner and banquet
will also be organized.
A full scale recruiting campaign
for new members is to end next
