Froah Welcomed
By  U.   Officials
The verdant frosh received their
first introduction to leading academic lighta and to their atudent
president, Dave Carey, bright and
early Thursday morning when they
met en masse in the auditorium to
hear the addresses of the A.M.S.
President, President L. S. Klinck,
Dean Daniel Buchanan, Librarian
John Riddington and Constable William Orchard.
The freshies, minus their virgin
green regalia, but nevertheless just
as fresh, having received the smiling salutations of Professor Walter
H. Gage, absorbed with evident
relish from Prexy Carey the Information that this year'a f reahman
class was the best in three years.
Welcoming the class on behalf of
the Alma Mater Society, he stressed
the neceaaity of class spirit.
"The atudenta of this university
have contributed $145,000 worth of
buildings, playing fields, etc., since
1024," he said.
"One thing which la important
is the creation of a good impression upon the general public' he
stated, "and downtown opinion is
Just about what we make it."
President L. S. Klinck welcomed
the newcomers with his well-known
genial   sincerity   and   praised, the
work  of the various organisations
which have done such a creditable
job in preparing for the opening of
the university.
"I want to thank particularly the
Committee of Faculty and Students
under the direction of Walter H.
Gage, the student's Information
Bureau, and the editors of the
Students*  Handbook."
Dr. Kllnck pointed out to the
newcomers that students are subject to arrest for breaking the
criminal code within or without
the city, and that in creation of a
public disturbance in town they
could expect no protection from
the university.
All campus organizations submitting budgets must do so by
Thursday, September 30th. Unless the various executives comply wtth this request, It may be
deemed necessary to curtail
their grants.
Notes to Victoria May
Bring Improved
"The preaent state of overcrowding at the University of B. C. can
produce either a further decline ln
the standards that have gained so
favorable a reputation for the university, or else a further limitation
in numbers."
OutBpoken and frank, U. B. C.
President L. S. Klinck deplored
lack of suitable facilities at the university ln the course ot his address
at the official opening ceremonies
In the auditorium Wednesday afternoon.
He etated that thraa times during the past year he had sent
notes to tha mlnlater of eduoatlon
In Victoria, bringing attention to
the crowding at the unlveralty.
"We have no Intention of letting the government forget whst
the situation hara Is," Dr. Kllnck
Registration this year to date Is
of 2B8 students over 1936.
ing that this figure 1b an increase
of 218  atudenta over 1936.
"To debar a qualified student
from the advantages of a university education because of inadequate accommodation would appear
to be invidious and wasteful," declared Dr. Kllnck.
"However, to admit him without
giving him auitable condltiona in
which to do his best is to defeat
In a measure the primary purpose
of the university.
"The increasingly important part
played by this institution ln the life
of the entire province constitutes
the justification for these remarks."
"Unless increased facilities can
be made available immediately the
efficiency of instruction in a number of departments wtll be still further  Impaired,"  Dr.  Klinck said.
Brief remarks by deans of the
three faculties were included on the
A Students' Council by-election

Among the names already being
mentioned for the Important Council position Is that of Lyall Vine,
former A. M. S. treasurer, whose
experience last year would be an
asset to the new student legislators.

To Car Drivers
As the University Area
Is Provincial, Fines Are
High on the Campus
Newcomers to the university had
their flrat introduction to their
"campus professor of Law on the
outside," Constable William Orchard, at the flrst general meeting of
freshmen in the Auditorium last
The address delivered by tho self-
styled professor did not, however,
limit itself to the assembled freshies, and attention is drawn to all
and sundry that ignorance is no
Constable Orchard stressed the
fact that he wished to assist the
atudenta in keeping the roada safe,
and in getting from one place to
another without mishap.
"Any time you are in trouble
you can atop me and I will do
anything to help you," he stated.
"If you want to know anything I
ahall be only too pleased to tell
you all I know. My object here is
not to pinch anyone, but to help
you all.
"There are several points which,
if they are observed at all times,
will give you the maximum of driving protection and efficiency," he
"1. From the time you leave
your home in your car, watch all
ajgna, school zones, speed and stop
signs, including those on the campus area.
2. You have a parking area here
of four acres, a very unusual feature ln any university. Park your
car there, all facing the same way,
with back of the car towards the
university and the front wheels on
the yellow line, a door's length
away from the next car..
5. Do not overload your cara.
The maximum for the front aeat is
three people.
4. If you have stickers, please
put them only in the right-hand
lower corner of the windshield, but
not on the back of the car or anywhere else.
6. Have your driver's licence
with you at all times, and your
minor's permit, if you have one.
6. Check your car over, see that
registration papers are in a conspicuous place so that they can be
aeen from the outside.
The "campus cop" pointed out
this last point as a reminder that
the university area is under provincial law and that fines under this
code are in all cases much higher
than in the city.
"However, the last thing I want
to do is to pinch you, and I always
warn flrst. But a second offence
will be dealt with severely," he said.
The radio and the motion picture
will play a prominent part in the
extension work of the University
of British Columbia, according to
plans now being laid by the new
director of the extension department,  Dr.  Oordon   M.  Shrum.
In a press interview Tuesday, Dr.
Shrum stated that the university
has plans for a radio studio to be
constructed on the campus, under
the sponsorship of the C.B.C. Although these plans are still in the
formative stage, lt ls hoped that
within a month, C.B.C. authorities
in Ottawa will approve the idea.
The campus radio studio has
been recommended to Ottawa by
the B. C. regional advisory council
of   the   C.B.C.
Speeches, dramatic and musical
presentations would be featured
from the university if the studio
was established. The extension
department hopes that much ot its
work can be carried on through
this  medium.
A direct line will be established
with CRCV and the B. C. network.
University programs would thuB be
able to reach a large part of the
population  ot  the  province.
The proposed studio will also be
used for the study of radio technique In educational broadcasts.
Dr.   Shrum   stated   Tuesday.
A daily program of Ave minutes,
broadcast about noon, will be presented under the sponsorship of
the B. C. Electric Railway. This
will be directed at Fraser Valley
farmers, and will be Intended to
assist them wtth agricultural problems.
"In this experiment, the extension department ls hoping that it
will be able to use the radio to
the fullest extent possible," Dr.
Shrum  declared.
Wednesday, on the campus, production of a moving picture dealing
with life at U.B.C. waa commenced.
The finished Aim will depiet all
phases of campuB activity, and will
be released by the extension department for uae in any part of
the  province.
Other Alms, dealing with specific
sections of university life, v.111 be
produced In the future, Dr. Shrum
Visual education work will be
carried on by the university this
year tn many ways. Lantern slides
and film slides will be sent, together with projectors, to centers that
desire them, to be shown to rural
audiences as educational  projects.

Will Be Big Affair
Frosh Ensemble Green
Shoes,   Ties with Hats
PHI boxes this year — not glengarries, nor Eton caps, nor gob
hats, nor Merry Widows, nor boating hats, but pill boxes. They tilt
raklshly forward on the brows of
brash but wondering freshmen;
they crown the page-boy bobs of
some of the smartest looking freshettes ln a decade; they sit squarely
and unhappily on the sober noggins
of tweed-clad Anglo-Saxon types,
patently Indignant and uncomprehending   of   this   tomfoolery.
Nail polish is livid, vivid, with
the hectic greenery of jungle life
—"Wildl,ife,"as the President hinted delicately during formal opening
Wednesday afternoon. Green suits,
neckties, shirts, sox and shoes, are
selected to harmonize with the enforced ensemble, and freshmen dutifully rerline on the bright green
grass to clinch their pictorial unanimity.
One of the more bubbling bus
drivers questioned a fully uniformed freshette as she boarded his 8.10
Jallopy Thursday morning, saying
archly, "You know you can't buy
student tickets unless you can
show you're a student." With trustful eyes she looked at him, then her
green-tipped Angers pushed Into her
handbag and she prodticed an official   bus  pass.     Ah,  innocence.
Even the loveliest of freshettes
failed to stimulate a Bacteriology
postgrad, beyond the dusty confines of his work. 'Eugenlcally,
she's imperfect," he commented
wrily. as the svelte freBhette chassis swaggered casually across his
view.      "Too   slim   for   childbirth."
Full regalia will be worn continuously, along with an attitude of
meekness and humility, until the

Council To Supply
Hon. John Hart, provincial minister of Anance, will declare the
new $40,000 varsity stadium officially   open   Saturday,   October   2.
Plans are nearing completion for
the festivities to be staged on the
opening day, when it Is expected
that students and downtowners will
pack the new stands to watch a
double-header sport bill, and see
university and government dignitaries take part ln the opening ceremonies.
Two games, English rugby and
Canadian football, ' will be played
ln  front of  the  stadium  that  day.

rangemente are being made by

Other special attractions will be
featured on the big day, with several Council members now working
on the plans. It la hoped that a
band will be In attendance, to help
membera of the Pep Club ln dispensing fun.
"Say, canya tell me where the
Men's Locker Room ls?" According to Norman DePoe, one of the
gentlemen of the Information Bureau, this was one of the most popular questions asked by the Freshmen. A good runner-up in frequency was the query, "When can I see
the Dean?"
Opinions concerning the presence
ot beauty among the freshettes,
were at variance. A young expert in female pulchritude deplored
the lack of this, quality in thla
year'a crop of Freshettes. Another
less observant male said hesitatingly, that he had noticed a few pretty
freshettes . . . but he hadn't Been
them since.
This honorable institution, which
poured forth information on request, proved Iteelf an Invaluable
asset ln helping guide aright the
bewildered Frosh. Courtesy and
efficiency was ever the standard of
the owlish Sophs as they treated
each and every problem with dig-
nlA_d consideration, no matter
whether it was a request for the
correct time or to And out the possibility of being able to use street

Applicants for
Players Club
Meet  Thursday
A meeting for applicants for
membership in the "Players' Club
was held in Arts 100 Thursday
noon, when those attending were
given directions for obtaining partners and try-out parts.
The honorary president of the
club, Prof. Walter Gage, also gave
a short talk on what would be expected by the judges during the
try-outs in the way of interpretation and general performance, stating that the actor should remember
to speak out well, and should give
a consistent interpretation of his
part. It was also better to slightly
over-act, he said, as it was easier
to tone down acting than to inject
life into it.
The president of the club, Pat
Larsen, emphasised the necessity of
being on time for the try-outs. Lists
will be posted on the Club's notice-
board, with names of partners and
the time they will try-out at, and
applicants should be in the Green
Room at least IB minutes early.
Those not present at the meeting
may obtain parts and instructions
from the Green  Room.
Although no official announcement has yet been made, it has
been rumoured about the campus
that a full-length Shakespearean
drama may be attempted at Christmas by the Club, possibly by the
alumni, with Prof. Dilworth directing. A meeting of permanent members is reportedly to be held in the
near future to make a final decision.

and popular athlete, who died July

Following every summer vacation the university reassembles with the memory of certain students and professors who have passed on clear in the minds of all.
This past summer no losses have been suffered from
the faculty, but eight of our more promising students are
no longer with us. The hazards of certain vacation Jobs
have claimed several, and others have lost their lives In
-automobile accidents.
The death of a young man or woman at a time when
life means so much ls always more tragic than the passing
of an older person. So it is that we have returned to the
university In a sadder, more humble mood when we remember those who have gone.
It is always well to pause for a moment, to recall how
fortunate some of us are, and how tragedy has struck others.
From the staff of the "Ubyssey," and from the entire university, we extend heartfelt sympathies to those who suffered
Once again it is the pleasure of the "Ubyssey" to welcome a new class to the campus. For twenty odd years
Dean Buchanan has regularly told each incoming class It
was the best looking green suit the campus had ever worn.
The flies show that this paper has never particularly agreed
with the amiable fabricator, but it ls not because of this
precedent that we again find fault.
The point is, that if the members of '41 possessed half
the attractiveness they think they do, certainly the Dean
would be under-estimating them. Wiping off for the moment,
then, the grease-paint of politeness, we extend our welcome
older-brother-like by telling '41 not to be too cocky. Since
the sophomores doubtless will cure that, we can go on with
a few words of wisdom, such as might be of benefit to the
We would ask them to realize that their four college
years can be the best of their lives if they will find the proper
balance between four factors—their studies, their club activities their sports and their social life. Methods of finding
this balance are numerous and the Ideal balance itself varies
greatly with the individual. There Is no generalization that
will flt every case. But it is highly important that this individual balance be found in the flrst college year, because
after that campus habits are almost impossible to change.
Random Ramblings
TTTITH autumn here again, and
new froah hordes invading these
ancient hells of learning, we suppose some brilliant thought should
be forthcoming about prolific Nature or the futility of Life or something. The only observation, however, that we can produce is that
the class of '41 look like nice wholesome boys and girls. Like the class
of 40, ,or 39 or 38 or 26 or 18 they
are very dutiful about placards and
nail polish, very respectful to upperclassmen (who are usually
heels), and will stand for hours on
the squad without any visible signs
of discouragement. (I have a theory that they do it in shifts and
sit In the stadium to rest, but I
haven't checked.)
As usual most of the men smoke
pipes, wear sports jackets, and can
be found at least four evenings a
week beering at the Tavern. In
between times they ride up and
down Granville Street in crowded
sedans singing college songs. When
it rains they will all appear in
trench coats and brown hats. The
really remarkable thing about frosh
is that, like an America's Cup race
or a Shep Fields introduction, they
always run true to form.
Bless you, my children.

In caae you're of the green-bedecked crop of newcomers, "intramurals" most definitely do not refer
to childiah crayon drawings, but to
lnter-class gamea, scheduled and
played in the different sports, with
the pointa awarded counting towards the Governor's trophy, emblematic ot campus athletic supremacy.
Such a set-up proved almost a
complete fiasco until the arrival of
one Maury Van Vliet on the muddled Intra-mural acene two years
And since that momentous occasion,
this vital form of athletic activity
on the campus has been gradually
coming into its own.
Interest reached a new high last
year, with inter-class teams in
many different games resulting in
heart-twinging battles for points.
But even at that, Athletic Director Maury Van Vliet's plans predict bigger and better things for
the coming season. His slogan,
"sports for everyone" Is enough to
get sports-minded undergrads drifting gymn-ward in droves.
Keeping that in mind, Maury
haa outlined a bang-up method of
taking care of all lnter-class challenge matches, scheduled tilts,
and even Intra-faculty marble
tournaments. All proposed Intramural activities will go through
the hands of a special committee,
headed by Paul Trussell, and Including class athletic representative from each and every class.
These class reps, are asked to see
Maury over in the gymn immediately, so that arrangements may
start right now for the fall term.
And it's imperative to the success
of this venture that all classes that
have not elected their reps, do so
within the next week.
When organisation Is complete,
which should be within tho next
ten day*, achedulea, and time-
tables of forthcoming tllta will
be posted on the gymnaatum bulletin board. Also point-results of
matches played, whether challenge or scheduled, will be tabulated by tho committee and announced in the aame manner.
And here's our genial sports director speaking: "Men's classes of
physical education will start this
Monday, with all timetables posted
on the bulletin board in the gymn
Further, all classes will start as
published. Pull up that sport anchor, and let's have full steam
ahead." —F. J. T.

"Van" Perry
Taking a look ln the Oym not
long ago with a view to the dope
on spirts in general. Couldn't help
noticing something unusual going
on: impromptu basketball. Evidently every student and his dog, as
well as freshmen, have decided to
make this sport their baby for the
session. Inspiration that comes
from last year'B Canadian Championship,  no  doubt.

Also the neweomara who have

laid plana.
But what of the truly good

membera of the senior team, will
earn the award, In two yeara' ear-

bealdaa lowering thalr acholaatle

play at theae gamea and who will
be left out In tha oold.
Another aspect, seldom noticed,
Is the tremendous lowering of the
Big Block standard. No longer
will the club be composed of outstanding athletes only, but filled
with   many  "plodders."
The big star of a senior team, In
my humble opinion, merits a Big
Block for her year's work. But I'm
told In all sincerity, that she does
not do as much for ol' Alma Mater
as some plodding intermediate who

members   of   the   illustrious   group.
Ten   co-eds   win   it   each   year,   but
many  of them are re-winners.
Don't let the above spell prevent
any Freshette turning out for their
favorlt esports. The diffrent clubs
welcome newcomers with open
arms. Both the basketball and hockey teams are anticipating good
years and the players (especially
intermediate hoopers) thoroughly
enjoy themselves. Intramurals are
on the up and up while archery is
rapidly gaining many followers and
might become a n inter-colleglate
sport. Also, don't neglect the gym

Prairie Trip Bug
Has Bitten
For three long years, Varsity's
Canadian footballers waddled In
soggy muck and mire, and ln not
one of those seasons did they more
than poke their heads above the
morass for a very brief breathing
spell in the form of few, very few,
In  other  words,   up  until  this
year, the Collegian pigskin artists
have  beon  Ineffectively floundering.    But thla ssmaater the tables
ara  turned, and  a  championship
squad  Is In tha offing—the prairie  trip's  got  'em.
One   department   ln   which    the
team   is  greatly  strengthened   this
year ls the line, which will average
over 190 lbs. Dynamite, that's what
it is, dynamite!
Russ Keillor seems to be a cinch
for the centre berth. For guard and
tackle positions, there is a wealth
of stellar material. Barney Boe,
Henry Stradiottl, Charlie Campbell, Art Deptford, Glenn Mason,
Brian Martin, Moanin' Lowe and
Bill Hodgson return from last
year's team, and a newcomer from
Alberta, Don* Palethorpe, 197-pound
lineman, is expected to add
strength  and   experience.
There is a small but select turnout for end. Including Bert Horwood, last year's flank; Jim Harmer of the Bnglish ruggers; and a
newcomer,  Dan   Leong.
The backfleld positions are being
contested by so many outstanding
players that selection is going to
be very difficult. Bob Parkinson,
last years regular, will have an ace
partner in Art Bellis, of last year's
Saskatchewan team. Among those
seeking halfback positions are
Rann Mathlson, lightning-like lacrosse and basketball star; Dave
Lewis, Tom Williams, John Pearson, Evan ap Roberts, and Jack
Charlton, veteran halvea; and Ly-
all Vine, Blnk Drummond, Jack
Ross and Freshman Aubrey Gray.
Surveying thla array of material,
It wouldn't surprise anyone if the

he can't break any records. What

Basil Robinson Out

To the accompaniment of the

the sound of heavy breathing, this

A new senior manager is in the
offing, if Walt Stewart fails to return. Little Sammy Wolfe, one of
the best liniment slappers in the
city, Is due for the position If Walt
doesnt show up.
At any rate the local point-get-
ters intend to show Alberta and
Saskatchewan the color of thetr
dust. As council has okayed the
four-man track invasion, the trekkers will bunk with the touring U.

With only the remnants of last
year's great team back, captain
Dobbie, coach of the English rugby
team. Is going to find lt a herculean
task to come up with another
"Wonder  Team."
Chief reason for the coaches worry ls that he will have to replace
Wilson, Lumsden and Willoughby
whose speed and experience made
last year's front line one of the
best in campus history. On top of
this, scrum man Jim Harmer, one
of Varsity's best all-round athletes,
has twisted his affection from the
Bnglish to the Canadiau brand of
The comforting thought in all
this gloom, however, la that laat
year's baokfleld Is prsotloslly Intact. Bird, College, Carey, Leg-
gat and MoPhee are the nuoleue
around whioh all hopes for a
championship team will bo built.
Although nothing definite can be
said about the abilities of the new
comers until they have been seen
in action, Trembly and Ted MoPhee of Bing, on the strength of
their high school form, seem the
best of the rookies.
It is very likely that Robson and
Paul Trussell of last year's second
team, wtll be moved up to the first,
while Freddie Smith, who was a
stand-In half for Vic Robson two
years ago, will likely be back in
his old position.
