 LPP Checks Its Mobile Unit
Campus Status   Tests *" TB
MT •   THE  ARRIVAL  of a  thirty-
•   STUDENT COUNCIL has referred to President N. A. M.
MacKenzie a request from the sampus LPP organization
for "clarification of our status as a political group at the
University" and for club-room space on the campus.
mmmmmmmm~~mmm—~m-———~mmmm The request came to the Student
 ....._   —— Council of the Alma Mater Society
in a letter from W. J. Gordon
Martin written "under the instructions of the Students Club, LPP,
at the University".
It was presented by Literary and
Scientific Executive President Fred
Lipsett to Council's regular meeting
last Monday night.
Martin's letter asks for "a meeting place of a more or less
permanent nature", and space tor
n library and notices.
lt further states:
"It is to be understood of course
1. that our club would not, under
any circumstances that I can foresee, expect any funds from the
AMS or any other University
organization, nor would we account
to anyone except ourselves for our
2. that we are not requesting any
privilege for our political organization other than what we regard
as proper for any similar organization."
Martin emphasizes that his group
"do not accept the idea that we
are politically free outside of the
campus but limited within."
He claims that his attitude is the
correct one traditionally at Canadian universities.
He concludes by stating that
"ours is not a narrow political
organization only — Marxism is a
study that embraces history,
science, nature, economics, current
affairs, customs, ethics, philosophy,
etc. In a very broad sense."
In a reply, Lipsett points out
that any new student group must
receive permission to organize
from Student Council, which is
usually given in the case of clubs
on the recommendation of the LSE.
The second step is to have a
constitution approved by LSE and
He explains in his letter to Martin that it is impossible to provide
permanent club space for more
than a small number of clubs, but
that any recognized organization
of the AMS may book rooms
With reference to finances, Lip-
sett's reply mentions Article IV
Section 1 (b) ot the AMS Constitution which rules that "all moneys
received by student organizations
under the Society . . . shall be remitted ... to the business officer
of the Society."
In conclusion, Lipsett informs
Martin that for clarification of the
standing of political organizations
on this campus copies of both his
and Martin's letters are being sent
to President MacKenzie.
Council deemed that this was the
step to take inasmuch as all outside organizations must have permission from the Board of Governors to form campus groups. This
rule applies to all off-campus
societies, political or otherwise,

New Vets Course
Aids Careers
• ANN ARBOUR. Mich, (UP)-
Not necessarily bigger, but at
least better, business knowledge is
being offered to returning veterans
at the University of Michigan in a
new four-month course.
Charles L. Jamisson, professor
of business policy and head of the
course, said the study was designed
to speed interested veterans into
profitable postwar  careers.
Jamieson said most persons ordinarily undertake a four-year
course in the subject, "but these
men just don't have that much
time." No degree or certificate is
offered,  however.
Jamieson said there are 20 men
taking th'j course, which includes
boc/kke. ping, marketing and pun-
lie relations. Sixty were persuaded
not to enter.

• THE ARRIVAL of a thirty-
four-foot white bus on the
campus February 11 will signal
the commencement of a tuberculosis survey of staff and students
at UBC,
The bus, housing a complete
self-contained mobile X-ray unit,
was originally scheduled to come
to UBC on February 4, but will
now arrive a week later, according to Harold Huggins, an officer
of the BC Tuberculosis Society in
charge of the work.
The campus survey, which will
be wholly voluntary, is a screening project designed to detect tuberculosis in its early stages when
the spread of infection is unlikely.
"This is a 'well unit' we are
sending to th% university," Mr.
Huggins said. "We are looking for
evidence of tuberculosis so that
preventive measures may be taken
before symptoms occur."
He added that the best argument
for prevention is early protection
against the disease.
The screening process handled
by the mobile unit is similar to
ordinary X-ray technique, except
that it can be done with the subject wearing a shirt or blouse. It
takes less than one minute to
The unit is expected to handle
nearly 400 students daily. It will
remain on the campus about eight
Confidential reports are maintained by the unit, and individual
reports will be handed to each
student volunteering to take the
Purchases of Christmas seals in

nearly $20,000, to purchase the mobile unit. In it, all developing
and technical work is carried out

Extent of the work of the Mobile X-ray Unit is indicated by its
record of 116,000 people examined
in BC during 1945.

More Moochin'  Of Smoochin'

Miss McGooch's recipe for a
successful manhunt (she has run
down and killed four husbands
in four successive ytai»> follows
a simple formula. Sne recommends
its use to all UBC female critters
who hope for a man—any sort of
a man—this week.

Is built like bears, wif lawng hlne
hilgs, an' they  caln't  he'p  fallln'

They becomes pushovuhs."
Her second principle in this remarkably easy formula is just not
to let the hapless male regain his
feet, once he's down. And hawg-
tie him as fast as possible.
"Ah kin give cyards an' spades
to any man a-livln' efn' Ah follys
them two rules," Miss McG. concluded. "An' et's only fo' the
benefit of them po' shif'less females draggin' roun' aout thar in

Miss McG. left us at that moment, expertly roping and throwing her creator, Mr. Al Capp, as
he passed incautiously close. Last
sounds heard by your correspondent were a series of short, sharp
yelps and one strangled moan in
a baritone voice.
We got out of there fast —

Manitoba Gets
Bison For Mascot
• WINNIPEG, Jan 10 -  (CUP)
—An all-time high in the line
of live mascots has been set by
the University of Manitoba this
week with the acquisition of a
bison to cheer the basketball
The bison, whose name is Kanna
Keena, was loaned to the university by the Winnipeg Parks Board.
Its former home was the city zoo.
Kanna Kenna will officiate during the inter-university basketball meet between Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and  Alberta.

V'inter class will be told of campus
activities so that they may get full
value from their attendance this
term. All new ex-service men and
women are expected to attend the
Campus clubs will be described
to the newcomers, with emphasis
on those of particular interest to
veterans. The AMS-sponsored
voluntary tutoring system for
veteran-students will be explained,
and those- who feel the need of
extra assistance will be invited to
register for the service.
"We realize that winter session
work will be intensive," student
council president Allan Ainsworth
said in a preview of the meeting,
"but we feel many of the new
students will find certain club
activities of vocational value."
Many UBC clubs coyer the same
ground as courses in other universities, he added. Participation
in such activities gives the student
practical experience of value in his
work after graduation.
All members of students' council
will attend the meeting, at which
students will also be told of sports
and recreational activities in which
they can take part immediately.

Last Chance For Artsmen
.   EDITORIAL PAGE   .   .   .
Council to revive the dormant student
executive organizations of the Arts faculty
by throwing in a pep meet with next Tuesday's elections can not help but remind us
of the Roman rulers and their circuses.
But that is exactly the step that Council
has taken, and for their refusal to let sleeping
dogs lie they are to be commended.
For several years successive Arts elections
have been called just as with the other
faculties, with the difference being that tht
effete Artsmen can not be bothered to drag
themselves out from the stacks to attend
We give them the benefit of the doubt by
not saying "from the Caf".
Last fall, it may be remembered, Student
Council, through its subsidiary Undergraduate Societies Committee, scheduled Arts
class and faculty elections for October 16 and
later on November 29.
On the first occasion nobody attended the
meeting.    On the second, and even more
infamous, occasion the Engineers turned out
and elected themselves to all the Arts offices!
So now Council is making one last attempt
to hold sophomore and junior-senior Arts
elections by planning to hold a pep meet
Tuesday noon, to serve as a lure to attract
ARTS students to the elections that will
Our Student Council, which is already
overburdened with a flurry of activities
brought on by the greatly increased registration, might Well be excused for washing
its hands of the whole matter of Arts
In making this last appeal, however,
Council is heeding the voice of its conscience,
for in the Alma Mater Society treasury is
one dollar for each Arts student to go towards his class party this spring.
The fact remains that without an executive
to plan the affairs there can be no parties.
It's as simple as that, Artsmen.

Make Me A Reported
THAT delightfully pixilated publication
NEW YORKER recently reported on one of
those fabulous American radio programs
featuring "audience participation".
In this particular show the announcers
venture into the audience seeking women
with fantastic wishes to be fulfilled. The
proceedings have the more exciting qualities
of a seance, a revival meeting, not to mention
a Parliamentary Forum crisis.
At the specific show reviewed an earnest
young woman leapt to her feet and screamed
"Make me a reporter!*'
They didn't take her. But we would have.
Had she been a UBC student we might
today tell her that her wish is not at all
fantastic. We can tell her what we didn't
dare interject into our welcome address on
We can make any UBC student, male or
female, a reporter.
We are not interested in what your
religion is, what your politics are, or in what
sex you have. All we require from you is
interest and a little time.
Perhaps you intended to take a fling at
campus journalism last September and then
were frightened into constant study by some
nasty professor's threats. Now you find
that you made a first class in the Christmas
exams. So why not mix newspaper work
and spring fever?
Perhaps you do not intend to make
journalism your life work. That is quite
understandable. As a matter of fact, neither
do many of the Publications Board members.
But no'matter what field of work you are
preparing for you will find that in later
years a little knowledge about the newspaper
business will be a valuable acquisition.
If a few more people knew a little more
about the press then the newspapers might
not fool sb many people as they now do.
We are also versatile in the Publications
office; We do not spend all our time on
your student newspaper. We also put out a
quarterly magazine, the THUNDERBIRD,
and a first-class yearbook, the TOTEM.
So whatever your talents or your year,
come over to Brock Hall and see us sometime.

• Someone Must Measure Ecuador
Last Tuesday evening I spent a nickel for
a newspaper. And it was worth it. Every
cent of it.
I read the paper from front page to back
page. I read the funnies. I read the stock
market quotations. I read the society notes.
I even read the editorials.
And then on page sixteen, on page sixteen,
I read it.
There it was, right on the bottom of the
third column.   All by itself.   Six words:
Ecuador has never been exactly measured.
Ecuador had never been exactly measured!
Did you, I said, ever ever in all your life
ever imagine such a thing?
No, I said.
And I was right.
The paper was certainly worth the nickel.
The next morning I was happy.  I whistled
as I went down Fulton Avenue.   I whistled
as I went up Crowder Street.   I whistled in
the elevator.   Allons enfants de la patrie.
Good morning, I said to Miss Black, good
morning to the fairest of the fair, thou of the
golden tresses.
Shut up, said Miss Black, for heaven's
sake, must you open your mouth the moment you step into this office?
Alas, I said, I must, I must.   What is in,
must come out.   Alas the fate.
Miss Black yawned most impolitely.
Good morning, I said to Mrs. Ludd, a good
good morning to thee, elder one.   'Tis a pity
thou canst not hear, and my beautiful words
fall on silent, deaf ears.   Alas the pity.
Shut up, said Miss Black.
And I did.
At ten minutes past ten o'clock that morning, I suddenly remembered. I had been
happy all the time without knowing why.
Miss Black, I said, Miss Black, I have the
greatest news for you.
You're quitting? she asked.
You hurt me to the quick, I said, but
strange to relate, I am quitting.   Not to-day,
not to-morrow, not next week, but soon.   I
have at last found my metier, my life's- goal.
Miss Black looked at me.
Well,  I said,  I  am  going to  measure
I'm going to measure Ecuador, me.   I.
Miss Black groaned.
Suddenly I felt that all the talk was use
less. Useless to talk to Miss Black. Useless
to talk to Mrs. Ludd, she couldn't hear, anyway.   Useless to talk.
So instead I thought.
One, Ecuador has never been exactly
measured. Two, Ecuador must be measured.   Three, I shall measure Ecuador.
Oh, it's a wonderful thing to have something to think of.
First I take a course on surveying. Then
I go to the National Geographical Institute
or something and they sponsor me. Then I
go to Ecuador.   Then I measure Ecuador.
At lunch I discussed it with my friend
Oscar Ronick.
Are you serious? he asked.
Of course.
Are you kidding me? he asked.
Of course not. *
Do you mean all you say? he asked.
Of course.
He looked straight at me.
I had to look away because one of his eye3
does not look in the same direction as the
They laughed at Edison, I said, until they
saw the light.
I finished my lunch alone.
At night I told my family.
Something's wrong with the boy, my father
said to my mother.
My God, my sister said to my mother.
My mother said nothing.
That night I dreamed about Ecuador, but
I can't remember anything about it.
Then I forgot all about it until to-day.
When I remembered I told my boss, Mr.
Fuller, that I would soon be quitting. And
I told him why.
Johnny, he said, how old are you?
Fifteen, I said.
Did you ever go to high school?
We have no money and I need to work.
Exactly. That's why you have to stay here
and work, and you can never measure
Ecuador.   Now am I right or am I right?
And he was right.
So someone else has got to measure

• UNIVERSITY slogans are few
and far between, and one of
the most famous ls the one originated by the Western Ontario Gazette — "Through the portals of
Western pass the most beautiful
girls in the world." (Editor's Note
—It is interesting to note that the
Gazette got honorable mention
for their photographs in the r.ecent
Bracken Trophy contest).
We do not dispute the point,
and even to our prejudiced female
eye it was apparent that there
are many beautiful women passing, or failing, through Western's
portals. *
However we are making a slight
addition to the slogan. . . "Through
Western's portals pass the latest
delegates in the world." For the
first two whole days we felt a
great deal of respect for our fellow delegates — preponderantly
male — but secretly wondered
how they ever made deadlines.
They were usually an hour late
for our conference.
On the last, day, Marion and I
slept in and then sped sheepishly
out to the conference ln a taxi
feeling very guilty about falling
into the sinful ways of our fellow
, delegates. We felt a little better
when half of the delegates, including the president, attempted to
vault into our cab when lt glowed
down to cope with an intersection.
On the whole the conference was
rather good. It's tuu bad that
editors did not have time to trot
out their Individual policies, with
special reference to politics, the
liaison, if any, with the student
government, and their methods of
dealing with mutinous printers
and advertising managers. We
wept on each other's shoulder?
about costs, and cub reporters,
but I do think that policies should
have had a day to themselves.
Naturally    our    favorite extracurricular topic   of   conversation
was editorial policy, and we were
interested to match ideas and exchange  friendly  arguments  with
the editors of the Varsity, Manitoban,  McGill   Daily,  Sheaf  and
the  Gateway.    We  also  bandied
words about  the Japanese  problem which has a long way to go
before fading out as a conversation topic.   I think,  Incidentally,
that this Improved CUP wire service will be a good thing for the
larger university papers.   It was
amazing to see how much each
editor knew about other universities merely by the exchange of
papers.    And  the   best  thing   is
that they were vitally interested.
Isobel   MacKenzle's   tongue-in-
cheek Beauty on the Spot column
has been read and even reprinted
all across Canada, our opinion on
the  Japanese problem has been
noticed, several delegates wanted
to know what Luke Moyls and
Jabez looked like and the identity
of the  editor  who  hatched the
column head "Home Thoughts of
a Broad" was sought by others—
we didn't apologize.    They were
all  interested in our  university,
its growing pains, and the good
care it's taking of Its service people.
The last day of the conference
was editor's day. We each gave
operational reports and post-mortems on our past term's problems.
Cause of much weeping, wailing,
etc., seems to be the printing
bogey. Humorously pitiful was
the sad fellow from the Marltlmes
whose paper was once delayed
two weeks because his linotype
operator quietly poured hot lead
on his feet . . and another editor
who wrote copy in English and
had only French linotype operators who spoke no English at all.
One delegate complained that he
honestly didn't know wha.t his
staff were doing, as they wouldn't
pay any attention to him.
The most enthusiastic editors
there were Don MacFarlane of the
Sheaf and the Dalhousie Gazette
delegate We suspect that chess
columns will sprout in college
pages. ... Bill Clark of the Gateway taught Marian how to play
chess on the train, and every
where else, of course, and now
everybody's doing it.
Incidentally, we dropped Into
the NFCU conference at Montreal
long enough to see our own delegates in action. From all reports
they deserve a few large medals.
The Editor
Those Huts ....
Editor, the Ubyssey,
Dear Madam:
To those of us who are new on
the campus it is enough of a job
to know where all of the regular
buildings are, much less 85 Identical huts.
These huts are in clusters ln
several different spots around the
campus. They are all numbered.
How does one find a hut marked
31 or 85 or x?   What ls the key?
I am sure that the students who
have been here for months would
like to know also.
May I suggest that you publish
in your paper the key to the
order, or if the order is too complicated, a map ofthe campus including the huts. A map of this
kind could be cut out and kept In
a wallet for future reference.
Yours truly,

Jokers Again . . .
Tne Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Dear Madam:
Throughout the year I have been
following your editorials with
Interest, and have been gratified
to see the consistently high standard of intelligent thought and
observation which they display. It
was with considerable disappointment, therefore, that I read the
trite, meaningless effort which
appeared as the third editorial in
the latest issue of the UBYSSEY.
True, there may be a shortage
of jokes about Canadians as such,
but French Canadians, Toronton-
lans, Halegonlans, BC weather, yes,
and even Eskimos, are celebrated
In many a time worn quip or
anecdote. •
That Canadian humour originated
long before the advent of the
Jokers and that they made a completely negligible contribution to
it would seem so obvious that you
could not possibly have seriously
believed the statements which you
made in print.
Hoping for a return to intelligent
and constructive editorials.
Yours sincerely,
3rd Year Arts.

• STUDENT government
of University of British
Columbia is unique in Canada and may be an example
for reforms at other Canadian universities, Allan Ainsworth, AMS president,
declared yesterday in reporting on the first post-war
conference of the National
Federation of Canadian University Students.
Revival of NFCUS, accomplished
at the conference at McGill University, December 27-28-29, was
begun last year by Dick Bibbs and
Ken Creighton, predecessors of
Ainsworth and Garry Miller as
AMS president and'treasurer.
"UBC is the only Canadian university where the students control
their own finances, and the only
cne whose students' society is incorporated," Ainsworth declared.
Ainsworth and Miller, UBC's
delegates to the conference, found
considerable interest in UBC's
student government in discussions
with the other 24 delegates. Some
of the other universities planned
to obtain detailed information on
student organization at UBC, Ainsworth said.
Asserting his belief that UBC
student government was superior
ln almost all ways, Ainsworth
attributed the superiority partly to
the relatively recent organization
of UBC. This had led to greater
student participation in university
affairs. AMS, with wide autonomy, had always co-operated with
the board of governors ln tuch
matters as provision of new buildings.
Ainsworth and Miller spent
December 26 working with Jack
Pye, setting up a conference
Dues to NFCUS were set at three
cents per student. All UBC students are automatically members
of NFCUS by being members of
AMS, which pays their dues.
Recommendations of the conference student services committee,
approved by the conference, Included: expansion of the exchange
scholarship plan, by which third-
year students spend one year at a
university in another province;
opening of negotiations with the
railways for renewal of special
travel rates for university students:
and requests for more scholarships
and bursaries from Ottawa and
provincial governments.
Under the exchange scholarship
plan, Helen Lord of UBC is now
at Queens' University. Last year
Lawrence Wragg of McMaster
University spent a year at UBC.
Two or more UBC students might
be able to get similar scholarships
for next year, Ainsworth said.
Liaison committee of the conference, headed by Ainsworth,
heard an address on International
Student Service by Professor Marcus Long. "We were satisfied that
ISS Is non-religious, non-political
and has a sound financial policy,"
Ainsworth reported. "ISS will be
the principal medium for International relations of NFCUS."
The    committee    recommended
efforts   to   co-ordinate   tours   of
Canadian and foreign debaters in
Formation of a national student
employment service was discussed.
*lWs service would be particularly
valuable to reduce the number of
Canadian graduates going to the
United States," Ainsworth said,
mentioning criticisms made of
Canadian students for this migration.
W. C. McVean, Bishop's CoUege,
Que., was elected NFCUS chairman. Major E. A. Macdonald was
re-appointed permanent secretary-
treasurer, and W. Watt, University
of Manitoba, was elected vice-
president for Western Canada.
Other features of UBC adding
to  its  uniqueness,  discovered bv
j Ainsworth and Miller, are that it
is the  only Canadian university
j affiliated   with   a   United   States
organization (Pacific Student Presi-
1 dents' Association), and the only
one a member of a US athletic

a lifelong ambition every time she helps a student to find
material for an essay or a research task. Above, she is seen
discussing a problem with one of the many undergraduates
who come to her every day for advice and assistance.
• A PLEASANT smiling lady, whose ambition was to do
library work even in her UBC student days, stands
behind the reference desk in the Library ready to help
students and professors alike with their troubles.   These
problems may range from securing material for a thesis or

Miss Smith and her two very
able assistants are most often
called upon to show students

find information for essays and reports. This task and many others,
as numerous students will bear
witness, they perform unfailingly,

American Council on Education reports that 125,000 veterans
were enrolled in colleges on Dec.
1, and said 600,000 will be on campuses by next September.
The Veterans Administration
warned that many schools may be
swamped under the load, which
is due for a heavy increase when
pending liberalizations of the GI
bill become law.
By September the American
Council said, overall college enrollment will be up 25 per cent
over the 1,400,000 students of the
peak year 1939-40.
Dr. Francis J. Brown, tha council's specialist on veterans' affairs,
reported that most of the nation's

Plans Needed
To Extend Brock
• STUDENT plans and suggestions for the proposed extension to the Brock Memorial Hall
should be turned in soon in order
that the building may be in blueprint stage by the fall, Cal Whitehead, member of the Extension
Committee said Wednesday.
The   committee   will   welcome
. complete   plans,   generalized   or
particular suggestions.
The extension was the dream of
students ln 1940 when the construction of a complete student
building was thwarted by war
shortages and construction priorities.
"It will be a student building,"
Whitehead stated, "designed and
financed by student enterprise."
"Therefore it is up to the student
body to take an active interest ln
it to make it a lasting and complete structure."
Plans and suggestions should be
addressed to Cal Whitehead in rare

Somerset Given
Drama Award
a AWARD OF A travelling fel-
lowship by the Rockefeller
Foundation to Miss Dorothy Somerset, director of dramatic work
for the Department of University
Extension, and head of the University Summer School of the
Theatre, has been announced by

dramatics course on the campus.
Through its provisions, Miss Somerset will be able to travel to
leading American universities to
study curricula and teaching methods.
Her itinerary will include Cornell, Cleveland, and Iowa universities, and will commence this
week. Miss Somerset plans a comparative study of methods and details to ensure establishment of
the UBC course in Jrama on a
sound academic basis.
Well known throughout the
