 APATHY MARS AMS GENERAL MEETING
300 Students Hear
UBC Legion
Advocates
Cost Bonus
Advocating a cost of living bonus
to be added to university and vocational grants, and the alleviation of
the Vancouver housing debacle, the
Canadian Legion swung into action
at the annual general meeting in the
University auditorium last night.
Liberalization of the Lord's Day
Act, and a plan favoring Dominion
and Provincial government representation for Indians feature^ the
resolutions passed by the meeting.
Another resolution asked Provincial
Legion support of the War Memorial
Gym Drive.
MEDICAL SCHOOL
Grant Livingstone, retiring president of University Branch 72, spoke
in favor of the establishment of a
medical school on the UBC campus,
and asked all Legion members to
support the campaign. He stressed
also the fact that the Legion must
remain a non-partisan, non-political
organization in order to be effective.
Five branch officers and fourteen
delegates to the provincial convention in May at Vernon, B.C. were
chosen. Don Lanskail was elected
first vice-president and Helen Noel
second vice-president of the branch.
Executive positions fell to Stewart
Chambers, Jack Hunter and John
West.
DELEGATES
Convention delegates from Vancouver and vicinity are: S. Chambers,
R. Dewar, G. Livingstone, J. MacKenzie, P. Millar, R. Elliot, R. Huene.
Miss M. Smith and Mrs. H. Noel.
Delegates from Vernon district are
M. Ayers, R. Coatsworth, H. Shugg,
J. West and F. Toporchak,
COTC Officers
Status Changed
University undergraduates accepted
in   the   Canadian   Officers   Training
lieutenants but will not be commission upon acceptance into the
Corps.
This ruling, which has just been announced by Army Headquarters in
Ottawa, replaces a previously announced regulation which provided
that those accepted would be immediately appointed temporary second
lieutenants,
From now on members of the COTC
will be known as officer cadets and
not as commissioned officers. They
will, however, receive second lieutenant's pay, will be subject to military
law as officers, and will be liable to
undergo annual military training.
The announcement from Ottawa
says .that orders already published
showing students appointed to commissions in the COTC will be cancelled.

Wagers Talks
On Peace Key
A confused and unstable post-war
needs to review the great moments of
its own history to find that the key to
permanent peace lies within the spiritually inspired words of the Bible,
Ralph E, Wagers, a member of the
Christian Science Board of Lectureship, told a student audience Wednesday at 12:30 p.m in Applied Science
100.
During a 40-minute discourse upon
the latent power within the Scriptures
for "the healing of the nations," the
speaker attempted to convey to his
student audience tbe fact that the confusion in the world today indicates "no inadequancy of divine government" but rather the inadequacy
of mankind to fully "honor the presence and power of God."
The lecturer's explanation of the
spiritual import of Jesus' healings,
along with the momentous rediscovery of the application of spiritual
power dn this age by Mary Baker
Eddy, Founder of Chrictian Science,
highlighted the talk.

Arts Requirement
Upheld By Senate
The University of British Columbia
Senate has decided against the discontinuation of the second year
language requirement for the Faculty
of Arts and Science as recommended
in a brief submitted toy the Summer
Session Students' Association.
The decision, made on the recommendation of the Faculty, was advocated by The Ubyssey some months
ago.
A petition favoring discontinuation
of the second year language requir-
ment was sent to the Senate by the
Summer Session Students' Association last fall. The petition was referred to the faculty who recommended  that  no   change   be   made.

Faculty Committee Formed
To Report On Med School
A three-man faculty committee, consisting of Dr. C. E.
Dolman, Dr. G. G. Sedgewick and Dean G. F. Curtis, has been
formed to look into the medical school situation, according to
information received from the President's office Thursday.
They are expected to make a re-f   ^   resolution    stated   ftat
port "very soon," requeuing that the
Provincial government state the nature of future allocations to a medical
school. The rejwrt will be made to
the University Senate which in
turn is slated to make a recommendation to the Board of Governors.
REPORT TO SENATE
Dean F. M. Clement acting-president of UBC, stated that "the
whole question of the medical school
is in the hands of the committee
formed for that purpose, The question will be reported to and considered   by   the   University   Senate."
Members of the investigating
committee were not available for
comment.
The eventual form that the medical college will take, whether it will
be built completely on the UBC
campus or whether clinical and preclinical training centres will be split
up. is not expected to come up for
consideration for some time, according to a reliable spokesman.
BUDGET INADEQUATE
At a policy-forming meeting of
the Pre-medical Undergraduate Society last month, it was resolved
that a first-class medical school
could not be built and operated on
the budget allocated by the Provincial  government.
the
$1,500,000.00 allocation would "barely
meet needs for the two pre-clinical
years," and made no provision for
the two years of study in a hospital.
Further recommendations were
made that <the motion be brought to
the attention of the Board of Governors and the Senate-Faculty
Committee,

ed for over two hours while this year's
Student Council reviewed its work
and turned over the responsibility for
student government to the eleven
newly-elected councillors.
The meeting opened with the reading of the minutes of the AMS general
meeting held last October. Tbe minutes were passed as read.
Following came President Ted Kirk-
patrick's synopsis, outlining the activities of Council during the year.
Don McRae, AMS treasurer, then
presented his report. "Hie statement
emphasized two main points, financial
policy and financial control. Essentially, the report stated, Council's fiscal
policy has been "to meet, within the
limits of our resources, the necessary
expense of any worthwhile group,
society, club or organization."
COMMITTEE PROPOSED
The report proposed that a financial committee be set up "within the
Undergraduate Societies Committee
"to give guidance and assistance in the
future." A second committee was
recommended which would undertake to insure that full and adequate
return is provided from Pass Funds
to the student body at large.
In regard to financial control, the
report pointed out the difficulties
met with this year and strongly refuted any charges of inefficency in the
staff. The question of business manager was considered in the report with
McRae holding the opinion that the
staff system as it stands was efficient
enough and that "no hasty or ill conceived direction be made to Council
which rtiay hamper them in giving
proper consideration to the problem."
MOTION
In this connection, Jack Ferry, editor of The Ubyssey, moved that "a
committee composed of the president
and treasurer of the Alma Mater Society plus five other student members
appointed by the Student Council investigate during the summer, thr
advisability and possibility of securing
the services of a full-time male business  manager  for   the  Society.   The
amendment by Gordon Martin which
deleted the word "male".
Following the presentations of reports from the different branches of
Council, permission was secured by
a vote from the assembly to permit
Student Council's flotations of a bond
issue of $150,00 to aid in financing tho
building of a War Memorial Gymnasium,
Upon the retiring Council turning
over their robes to the 1947-48 "Ditry
Eleven" Kirkpatrick presented Grant
Livingstone, president-elect with a
gavel carved from a mastedon's tooth,

Allan Ainsworth.
Kirkpatrick was presented in turn
with a miniature gold gavel by treasurer-elect Bob Harwood.

university paper since that time.
"The Mummery", which has been
reprinted by many Canadian college papers, is probably the most
popular feature The Ubyssey has
ever printed.

French in 1941, winning the silver
medal. He was in the RCAF for
three years, and since 1945 has been
instructing in the department of

Fills Liaison Post
by George Robertson
Radsoc Gains Maturity
The University of British Columbia's youngest and most enterprising
major club is fast attaining maturity.
The University Radio Society,
formed in late 1939, and never really
active until two years ago, is now a
full-fledged "liaison officer" between
the university and the general public.
"We hope to become an integral
part in the relations between the
public and the student body," says
Ray Perrault, president of the Society.
''Our aim," he continued, "is to develop a real radio culture at the
university." He stresses this function
of radio more than its # entertainment
value.
RECOGNITION
At present the Radio Soeiety is cooperating with the University Extension Department and is tentatively a
member of the University's Public
Relations Committee. Official recognition of the Radio Society as a
representative on the Relations Committee will likely come at the next
meeting of the Board of Governors
on April 7.
Even greater cooperation between
the university and the public will be
realized if plans now under way are
developed. Such plans include the
building of a permanent record file of
notable faculty personalities, guest
artists that come to the campus, and
the extension of radio broadcasts to
up-country communities.
JOINS WURF
The newly-organtaed Western
University Radio Federation, of which
the Radio Society is a member, will
provide an additional outlet for talented Radsoc members. Tentatively
arranged at the preliminary meeting
of WURF were the possibilities of
organizing a transcription network, a
news-sheet, an Inter-Varsity Drama
Festival, and a weekly Campus News
Roundup.
Beginning in a one-room studio in
1939, the Radio Society developed
slowly in war years, but picked up
swiftly under president Bill Watts in
1945 and 1946. This year, the Radsoc
studios are crowded between the
Barber Shop and the Mamooks, and
members are finding that even an
office, control room, and broadcasting
Scholarship Bids

this week.
Students interested in applying for I
scholarships may obtain full informa- I
tion   regarding   them   in   the   UBC
calendar.

or students and must be submitted

studio are too small to oarry out their
plans efficiently.
NO COMPLAINTS
Perrault isn't complaining, though.
"We have found that our relations
with the Student Council are better
than those of most other Canadian
universities," he says.
The Soeiety has produced numerous
regular programs and special events
this year, and is planning to expand
this schedule in accordance with the
plans of WURF. Thunderbird Theatre,
a weekly dramatic broadcast; Radio
Round Table, produced in conjunction
with the Parliamentary Forum; Music
from Varsity, produced with the cooperation of the Musical Society; and
special events including broadcasts
of rugger and basketball games, and
guest artists were all part of the 1946-
47 Radsoc program.
DEPARTMENTS
The Radio Society organization is
composed of eight departments: announcing production, continuity,
secretarial, publicity, dramatic, technical, and recording and sound effects. Each of these departments combines with tiie others to produce the
regular Campus Network shows as
well as the ones beamed over downtown stations.
Equipment recently acquired by the
Radio Society includes a console, a
patch panel, a recording machine, and
numerous varieties of microphones
for special purposes.
SCRIPT COURSE
A weekly script-writing course is
being offered in conjunction with the
Red Cross Lauds
Blood Donations
A letter from E. L. Kenny of the
Red Cross Blood Transfusion Service
was received this week by the AMS
office, thanking students for their
efforts during the drive which ended
March 14.
Mr. Kenny announced that a total
of 425 donations had been made during the week, about 5% of the student
enrolment. The goal at the beginning
of the drive was 100 donations a day
for the five days.
However he does rtot feel that the
drive failed by any means. " We are
highly pleased with the showing,"
Mi. Kenny said, "and we feel satisfied that if we continued for three
weeks at least 100 students would
appear to give blood each day.
"In view of the fact that examinations are now under way it would be
unfair for us to continue tihe drive
at this time.   Next September we feel
would  be  the best  time to  start a
well planned campaign.    We  expect
that we might have as many as 2006
students prepared to give their blood."
Mr.   Kenny   closed   the   letter   by
thanking students "for this splendid
effort  on  behalf  of  a  very  worthy
cause."
Society's Drama Department, under
Emest Perrault. Lectures are given
by Perrault, James Beard, and Peter
Duval, as well as by special guests
from the downtown radio stations.
A script contest, sponsored by the
CBC and open to students of the
course was held recently. Peter Duval's "Abacrombie Sailed Today" was
announced as the prizewinning entry.
Duval's script, the story of a Vancouver seagull, will be presented on
Vancouver Theatre April 17 at 8:30
p.m.
ENGINEERING
Similar courses are offered by the
heads of other departments. A course
in non-technical engineering under
Chief Engineer Al Goldsmith was
held recently. Don Winchester, head
of the announcing staff, sponsored a
course in announcing techniques.
Ernest Perrault, president-elect, is
planning even bigger and better things
for the Radio Society. Cooperation
with WURF will likely be the keynote of future plans.
Kansas College
Offers Positions
Kansas State College invite application for research or teaching as-
sistantships. Forms can be obtained
from the Office of the Dean of the
Graduate School, Kansas State College,  Manhattan,  Kansas.
Positions are offered in over forty
fields, including agricultural economics, chemical engineering, education.
English, geology, history, mathematics, physics • and zoology.
A complete list is available at the
office of the Registrar. April 1 is the
deadline for returning applications to
the College.
Jobs Scarce
States McLean
The summer employment situation
for students at the University of British Columbia is "not good" and
students will be wise to tic up With
a job soon, said Mr. J. F. McLean of
the University Employment Bureau
yesterday.
Although employment figures released from the National Employment Service are better than they
were a month ago, student opportunity is poorer than it was this time
Inst year. The Employment Bureau
has two to three times the number of
applications for the job vacancies, he
said.
DECRIES CHOOSINESS
Mr. McLean warns students not
to get "too choosy" in regard to summer jobs, and he advises them to
find something soon.
"The situation is similar to that of
last year," he said. "Students feel
they will get something better but in
the long run they end up by losing
a month of work. This happened time
and time again last year."
He feels it is better to take a job
at low wages than wait around for
something good to turn up. Last yeai
a large number left job-seeking until
after the exams and lost a month or
more of employment, he said.
DIFFICULT SITUATION
"When 5000 people are dumped on
the labor market, particularly in one
place like the Lower mainland, it
creates a difficult situation," he
warned.
Some students are not accepting
jobs which have been offered them
thus causing a difficult situation, according to Mr. McLean. This relates
mostly to work in mines but even
these vacancies are being filled up
with men other than students.
A few jobs will be available on the
campus for married veterans, he
stated. It is not yet known how many
students can be used in the construction of campus buildings because the
building program is suffering from a
lack of materials.
EMPLOYMENT DOWN
Chief disappointment is in the logging and wood industries, Mr, McLean said. They will be able to employ one third as many students as
they did last year.
Up to noon Tuesday, 2363 men and
259 women had registered at the employment office for summer employment.
Summer school registration cut
these figures 50 percent last year, Mr.
McLean stated.

At present the ideas of the two

the trick, the trio will have the best
organization on the campus,
Feeling that UBC social functions
(culd well stand a shot in the arm
as far as the dating end of things is
concerned, Eddie and George came
up with the idea of establishing a
bureau to introduce students to one
another, and generally promote attendance at UBC functions of all
kinds.
FATHERLY  ADVICE
In addition, the boys plan to administer a little fatherly advice to
those in need of it.
"Oh sure, we're qualified to give
advice on social problems. Aren't we,
George?" Eddie enthused during a
recent interview with this reporter.
Naturally, and on marriage, too,"
George nodded sagely, "You see, we
were in the service for four years
each." Neither of the boys is married.
Miss Purvis, they went on to explain, will handle the female phase
of the undertakings.
Allison U Keeps
Promise To Vets
(Canadian Press Release)
Mount Allison University has lived
up to a promise to veterans to look
after them when they returned to
their books.
Two large apartment buildings—
suitably named Ortona Hall and
Normandy Hall—memorials to European battlefields of the Second World
War, were erected between July and
January 1. They provide four-room
apartments for 32 married student
veterans and their families.
RENTS AVERAGE
Complete with all modern conveniences, the apartments rent for |30
a month. Ortona Hall accomodates
married veterans who have no children, and Normandy Hall is for
famlies with children.
"The married veterans at Mount
Allison are sitting right on top of
the world as far as housing is concerned," said Richard F. Titus, Monc-
ton, a sixfoot-seven inch former navy
officer, who goes by tlie nickname
of "Tiny." He is president of the
Student War Veteran's Association
on the campus.
CROWDED BUT HAPPY
Mr. and Mrs. Vincent Palmer, Newcastle, N.B., with four children and a
collie dog find their four-room apartment a tight fit but they are contented.
One student veteran from Vancouver and his wife from Toronto,
decided to come to "Mount A" because they heard that living conditions were better than at any other
university in Canada.
First step after they get tin office
is lo set up an extensive filing system
of vital statistics of their clients, us
well as such information as likes, dislikes, hobbies and chief interests.
CONFIDENTIAL
All the information, the boys assured us, will be strictly confidential
and will be used solely for bringing
compatible couples together,
Entire project will be on a noncommercial basis, since the Triumvirate, as the three have temporarily
labelled themselves, has only the
well-being of the students at heart.
"But after we introduce a couple,"
Eddie added, "they're on their own."
Vital statistics on the boys themselves reveal that Eddie is a native of
Portland, Maine and a G.I. with four
,v«ars army service to his credit.
George, a Califorruan, served with
the U.S. Marines for four and a half
years.
Officials Advise
Dental Treatment
The summer months will be the
best time for veterans to get their
molars filled and their bicuspids extracted say officials of the Department of Veterans Affairs dental
clinic.

Successful year
By DON ROBERTSON
The first year of successful operation under a permanent
staff has been completed by the Alumni Association of the
University of British Columbia.
hi   January,   1945,   the   University^
Administration  felt  the  necessity  of
establishing a permanent liaison between the community and the university. As a result an alumni office
was set up in Brock Hall with Prank
Turner, secretary manager, in charge.
RECORDS
Under the new scheme, each graduate's record is kept on an individual
tab, under his class year, The latest
addition to the office, who maintains
this efficient system, is Miss Joy-Marie
Hutchinson, Aggie '45.
The chief function of the alumni
is to interpret and take a stand on
things affecting the university. This
position is exemplified by the work
of the alumni in investigating the
possibilities of establishing a medical
school on the campus.
In this connection, the association
read and studied literature dealing
with the problem, met with alums
who are doctors, and studied tho
question from the angle of the four
parties concerned, tihe students, administration, medical profession and
the people of the province.
COMBINED OPERATIONS
The War Memorial Gym Committee established in January, '46, was
a combined student-alumni group. In
order to participate in the drive, the
alumni were forced to postpone two
membership drives, at the time when
the permanent organization was beginning to function.
Last spring, Frank Turner travelled the Kootenays and the Okanagan
with the Players' Club in support of
the Gym Fund. Again this fall, Mr.
Turner was on the road plugging the
Memorial Gym Campaign,
However, in spite of the interference of the Gym Drive, the association
established new branches in Creston
Valley, Kimberley, Vernon and environs, South Okanagan and Kelowna,
Branches at Ottawa and Toronto were
revived and the next objective is to
start a branch in Seattle and a chapter in California.
SERVICE
One extremely important service
which the association now provides is
an employment service in conjunction
with the University Employment and
Emplacement Bureau.
This service was brought about
chiefly through the efforts ot Lt. Col.
Tom Brown, past president of the
alumni. Now three ihembers of the
association are on the Bureau.
At present the alumni is also represented on the University Building
Commission, Council of Athletics and
the Public Relations Committee, as
well as having 15 elected members
of the Senate. Three of these members are on the permanent executive
of the association.
PUBLICATION
The cement that holds the association together is the quarterly, the
''Graduate Chronicle," which reflects
campus news, personalities and other
items of interest to the alumni members. Every grad receives the magazine free if he is a paid-up member
of the Alumni Association.
Before the graduating class leaves
the campus this year, Mr. Turner
hopes that they will organize themselves along class and faculty lines,
and elect a class secretary to work
with the alumni office in holding the
groups together.
Mr. Turner reminds grads that if
they pay their alumni dues before
leaving UBC, they will receive a year
and a half s membership Instead of a
year.
UBC Reporter Explores
Realm Of Sound Effects
By KEN WEAVES
You have to be smart son, to be a sound effects man.  Those
little men who produce the sounds of violent death or sweet love
over the airwaves are really auditory magicians.    Their job
is to make you believe what you hear.
Take  for   example,  Varsity's own*
radio station, URS. Although it is not
a large station, Tommy Mitchel, sound
effects direator nevertheless has a
large size problem on his hands every
URS production.
JJEW IDEA
One play the station presented
called for an echo sound. Mitchel
after various experiment finally hit
upon the idea of using two microphones with an amplifier. The actor
spoke into one mike, his voice traveled through the amplifier and was
picked up by the other mike. The
audience heard one voice then a few
seconds later they heard the echo.
Another time Tommy was faced
with the problem of producing the
sound of an elevator door closing, the
elevator rising, the door opening and
incidental crowd noises,
NO PROBLEM HERB
The crowd noises were easy. For
these he used a stock recording. The
whine of the elevator rising was pro
duced by the record sound of a generator. But the door noises were
difficult.
However, after many attempts Tora-
my found that the desired effect
could be gained by sliding a paper
basket over a table top and letting
it hit a tin box.
What makes the job more difficult
is that natural sound effects do not
sound "real" over the radio. The
sound of a pistol shot ia produced
by snapping a ruler on a hard surface. The sound of a real pistol would
sound  moi>   like  *n  atomic  bomb.
NO LIMIT
The sound effects profession is one
■where you eon get away with murder. You can shoot people, hit them
over the head with blunt instruments,
stab them in the back, freeze them
to death, bum them to death, and if
you get tired of everything you eon
blow the whole world to bits, and
still live to tell about it.

Students are warned to make sure
of their examination times as many
changes have been made, the Registrar's office announced this week.
Any student who is prevented from

write to the Dean of the Faculty in
which he is registered and give full
particulars about the cause of his
absence. If a student is absent because of illness, he must produce a
medical certificate within one day
after the examination period.

the last day of lectures. In the case
of papers written in more than one
room, it is essential that students go
to the room assigned.
No student will be permitted to enter an examination room after one-
half hour from tlie beginning of the
examination and no special arrangements will be made for writing at
other than the prescribed hours officials state.
Council Denies
Funds For Glider
University of British Columbia's
Gliding Club will not get its glider
repaired until future councils reconsider the cost, Don McRae, AMS
treasurer, said recently.
Tentative estimates of repairing
which have been submitted are too
high to be considered now, he said.
Lower estimates will have to be submitted before council can consider
the glider's resurrection.
Vandals Dye
Building Red;
Damage $300
Almost $300 worth of damage was
done when students poured red flour-
escein dye down the front of the
Science building, Ted Kirkpatrick
stated on Wednesday.
Branded as "downright vandals" by
faculty members and student officials
alike, the persons responsible for
spilling bright red dye from second-
storey windows may be suspended
from university for one year,
EXPULSION ASKED
Angry professors are asking for expulsion of the culprits. Punishment,
to be meted out by the discipline
committee, may demand that the cost
of righting the damage be assumed
by the perpetrators;
The fuorescein was prepared in the
Chemistry 300 laboratory as a required part of the course.
Kirkpatrick stated it was "hard to
believe that anyone would deliberately go from room to room, then to
the roof, to spill the chemical down
the front of the building.
INVESTIGATION
Names of students who were working in labs at the time of the crime
have been collected, and an investigation is now under way.
To remove the stain from the granite front of the building, men had to
be hired to rub the face with sand
and water, Kirkpatrick said.
NOTICE
The Symphonic Club will meet for
the last time on Friday, March 21, at
12:30 pjn. in Brock Hall Double Committee Room. Program will consist
of music suitable for Easter; the
"Good Friday Spell" from "Parsifal"
by Wagner, and ''Requiem" by Faure.

ARCHITECTURE STUDENTS
OCCUPY NEW CAMPUS HUT
By JOAN CHARTERS
The most luxurious and modem
hut on the university campus is the
home of the newly created Department of Agriculture under Professor
Frederic Lassere.
This year's forty student architects
have begun their work in a large
excellently lighted hut containing a
drafting room, lecture room, reading
and display room and offices.
NO WASTE SPACE
Entering the hut through an extra-
large red slate door surrounded by
glass panels the first modern note to
strike the visitor is the remarkable
lack of waste hall space.
Another unique quality of the new
hut, is its departure from the conventional green walls and brown
linoleum seen in most of the campus
huts. Professor Lasserre has added a
truly modern touch in his different
colored end walls and bright red
linoleum.
NEW FEATURES
The drafting room, illuminated by
fluorescent lighting for evening work,
has twice as many windows as any
other hut on th campus. Its walls are
marked off in feet to provide students
with a convenient measure of distance. The large floor -to - ceiling
black board covering an entire wall
of the room serves for drawing complete diagrams and illustrations.
The lecture room directly behind
the drafting room is equipped to
show slides and motion pictures. One
wall of the material and model display room is composed entirely of
small panels of different types of
glass labeled to provide students with
an easily accessible reference. This
room also contaiis samples of plywood,   siding and  panelling.
DECORATION
A display of students' work and
pictures from magazines decorate the
walls of the reading and exhibition
room which contains reading tables
and the beginnings of an architectural library.
Professor Lasserre who manages
the new department from his efficient
suite of two modern offices in the hut
is pleased with the progress made this
year. He expects, however, to have
more than forty students next term
and may add a new course in Interior Decorating possibly linked with
the Department of Home Economics.

HAPPY THOUGHTS
As the year draws to a close it is pleasing to
The Ubyssey to be able to bestow thanks and
congratulations upon many campus organizations which have done a fine job during the
past months.
Before turning to the field of student endeavor we'd like to repeat our thanks to
administration and faculty for the extra effort
which was made to look after every eligible
student who filled in a registration booklet.
Too often it is easy to forget that officials and
professors have put in hundreds of extra hours
making it possible for the University of British
Columbia to attain its present healthy condition.   Thanks.
Thanks also to the hundreds of forgotten
men and women employees at the university
—the cafeteria and snack bar girls, the janitors,
and the hundreds of others, who have all had
to suffer the peculiarities of undergraduate
manners.
Heading the department of extracurricular
activity has been one of the finest Student
Councils the Alma Mater Society has ever
had. Any Council that can run the activities
of nine thousand students with as few mistakes
as were made this year deserves a bit of praise.
(And that's not blarney left over from St.
Patrick's Day.)
Of course, the Council didn't do it all. Hundreds of clubs and committees had to do most
of the planning and the work. The Ubyssey
feels that certain ones should be singled out
for thanks, for instance:
The Players Club — which delighted the
campus with its usual fine productions, including the major one which was produced under
President Replies
To Caf Charges
ED. NOTE—From time to time this paper has received
letters and suggestions to the effect that food prices in the Caf
and in Brock Hall are too high. The Ubyssey—which doesn't
see eye to eye with those who complained—asked President
MacKenzie to release the pertinent information which it gladly
prints in the following memorandum from the President.
Dear Sir: <§-
In reply to your enquiry about the
difficulty, and also managed to stage a Drama
Festival which gives Western Canadian universities another bright star for endeavor;
The Pre-Med Undergraduate Society—which
woke up a good part of the province to the
merits of a worthy cause. They might not have
succeeded for the present—may their future
be happier;
The Literary and Scientific Executive clubs
as a whole — which provided an outlet for
every form of polite recreation known to man;
The Parliamentary Forum—which combined
entertainment with education and made an
excellent start on addition to a very worthwhile
program of Canadian-American contests;
The Musical Society — for another good
show and another example of reciprocity across
the forty-ninth parallel;
The Thunderbirds — for similar reasons.
(And better luck to the football 'Birds in the
future;)
The Radio Society — for extra merit and
ambition in a student field which carries weight
far beyond the bounds of the campus;
The Mamooks — who drew attention to
many of these activities while seldom getting
any attention whatsoever themselves;        *"""-
And to all the other hard-working organizations, including the much-maligned undergraduate societies, with special mention to a
Commerce Undergraduate Society that helped
to stage a banquet which in several hours did
more good for the university than any amount
of petty faculty rivalry will ever do.
To you all The Ubyssey says thanks and
good luck. We love you all. (Besides, look at
all the good stories you've provided.)
The Wassail Bowl
This being our last official column of the
year, we'd like to clean up a few odds and
ends. The discipline of writing a more or less
serious piece once a week is a harrying business. Writing on anything you feel like, and
just as you please, is the literary way of stretching out on a sofa, undoing your tie, and beginning: "Now, as I was saying . . . ."
CLEANING OUT THE DRAWER
Our drawer in the news editor's desk contains the following: one pull-over sweater,
which we wore for a sporty effect, but which
was too warm; one shrivelled apple, the last
of a shipment from Penticton; one unmailed
letter to the World Federation of Trade Unions-
asking for a size 39 union suit; several folders
marked "letters in" and "letters out" which
were designed to systematize the features department, but which weren't used after the
first week.
There were other things, but that's about
all you'd be interested in.
BANNING OF BOOKS
There is a reaction against the arbitrary banning of books by the Department of Customs
and Excise, setting in just at present.
An obscure official in this department, who
probably isn't interested in the subject one
way or another, is often forced to deny entry
to Canada of certain books labelled "obscene"
and "indecent" by one or two anonymous
pressure groups. He undoubtedly yields to
their desires because, like any good government employee, he hates to get involved in
controversies.
THE THUNDERBIRD HATCHES
A good many people dislike this type of censorship, however, not only because it is censorship—and thereby an unnecessary abridgment
of our personal rights—but because it is arbitrary, foolish, and inefficient.
Such celebrated authors as D. H. Lawrence,
James Joyce, and James T. Farrel are verbot-
ten; or did you know that? The best way to
correct this evil is to write to your member of
parliament frequently until he does something
about it. A little pressure from the other side
may force the anonymous censors into the open.
Congratulations are certainly in order for
the editors of The Thunderbird, UBC's literary
quarterly. This little magazine has jumped
into the bracket of first-class reading, It's not
a "popular" magazine, of course—you can get
those things for a nickel downtown any day—
but it contains some of the best work done by
the campus literati. Frankly, its the best two-
bits worth of literature in these parts, and
deserves your hearty support.
BRIBES AND THINGS
Keith, a second-year scienceman, gave this
department some sincere criticism a few days
ago, little knowing that it was the perpetrator
of this effort to whom he was speaking.
"The trouble with The Wassail Bowl," he
said, "is that the author is too darned young—
not cynical enough."
We're sorry, Keith. A long time ago, a lot
of college kids used to be idealistic; but we
suppose you're right, it's not good form anymore. We'll be finishing UBC pretty soon, so
here's our first attempt at cynicism.
The newspaper reports on the current Police
Commission Inquiry make interesting reading.
Something was mentioned about the taking of
bribes, and co-operation between officers of the
law and gamblers.  Tsk.
Of course, any joe knows where he can
gamble a few bucks, or get a bottle, or pick up
a couple of Girl Friends; but it must have been
quite a shock to our civic authorities to find
out—so suddenly, at that—that Vancouver was
not an annex to paradise after all.
O.K. Keith?
* *       #
Well, this effort, mis'uble as it is, marks the
end of our second year as a Ubyssey columnist.
You have to be a bit of an egoist to figure your
opinions are just so darned important they
have to get said in print. Or, as Keith says,
a cynic.
Anyhow' to the intrepid three or four outside of the trade who have waded through the
Bowl's galley of 10-pt, week-in, week-out, we
accept your thanks.   Don't mention it.
The Wassail Bowl is hereby bequeathed to
whoever wants the darned thing.

ED. NOTE:    Better it should be buried.
financial operation of the cafeteria,
the Brock dining room and other eating places about the campus I feel
that you should keep one matter of
general principal in mind; that is,
the University of British Columbia is
not a profit-making organization.
All the money we get, whether it
be from fees or gifts or government
grants or so-called profits from cafeteria, etc., go back into the university
and are used for the benefit of the
students and the community. With
this in mind we attempt to provide
service to the student body as near
cost as possible, but we have to be
careful that we do not incur deficits
because there is no provision for deficits in the operation of the cafeteria
and other similar undertakings in
our annual budget or in the grant
that we get from the government. In
other words, if the cafeteria does not
pay for itself we either have to increase the price of the meals served
or decrease the value of the food
given.
I have before me the university
financial statements for 1945 and 1946.
In 1945 there was a cash profit In the
cafeteria   of  $431.41.   In   1946,   $873.67.

MEETINGS
Jazz Society's new executive is to
be elected at noon Thursday in the
society's clubroom behind Brock Hall,
A   jazz   program   will   be   presented
afterwards.
Plans are now being made lo continue the club's radio programs over
downtown stations during the summer. All interested members are
asked to contact John Crofton or Bill
Hill.
In the Brock dining room there was
a deflicit of $42.60 in 1945 and a profit
of $108.97 in 1946. These statements
provide nothing for cvershead: that
is the buildings, the light, the heat,
the janitor service, insurance, depreciation and other items for administration included in the university
budget.
Because ot the increased cost of
food and, more particularly, the increases in wages during the past 12
months it is doubtful whether we
can continue to give as good service
for the same prices next year that
we have been giving in the past.
However, we will do everything that
we can to keep the prices down and
to maintain a good quality of food
and of service.
In view of the large number of
meals that have been served during
the past two years you will, I think,
agree with me that those responsible
for the operation of the cafeteria and
the Brock dining room have made
very close calculations of costs of
operation.
I hope this information may be of
seme interest to you.

WAA MAY RE-FORM
ALONG MAA LINES
Formation of the Women's Athletic Association along similar lines to the Men's Athletic Association and provisions for
health, training and finances of the WAA were discussed Wednesday, March 19 in the office of AMS president Ted Kirkpatrick.
The decision to subscribe, if
necessary, to a bond issue reached
at today's general meeting of the
AMS will soon crystallize plans
for UBCs long awaited and widely discussed War Memorial Gymnasium.
Depending on the availability
of construction materials, officials of the Board of Trustees
to the Memorial Gym Drive, hope
to authorize construction as soon
as possible. It is thought likely
that this may be within four or
five months.
LASSERRE NAMED
Professor Frederick Lasserre,
head of the recently instituted
Architectural Department has
been authorized by^ the Board
of Trustees to arrange for the
preparation of the design of the
building.
When completed, his recommendations will be submitted
to whichever archticture firm
is selected for the contract.
Dr. Lasserre and his architecture students have long been
considering the treatment of the
building. A model, prepared as
a table display for the Science
Ball, represents what has, already been done. Although
only tentative, the design of this
model will probably closely approximate the final, appearance
of the building.
PRIORITY ORDER
The cost of the entire unit is
likely to exceed the funds immediately available. This will
necessitate the construction of
the building in parts, with the
entrance foyer and the main
auditorium first on the list. The
swimming pool and the smaller
adjoining gym floor will probably  cbme   later.
The theme of the War Memorial aspect will be fully developed   in   the   entrance   foyer,   Located In the center of the proposed   building,    it    will   afford
SPC Elects New

meeting of the Social Problems Club
today at 12:30 p.m. In Arts 100.
Nominated for president are Gordon Martin and Roy Jefferies; for

entrance, on the left to the
swimming pool and on the right
to the main auditorium. The hall
will be at two levels, the upper
one in the form of a balcony
leading to a large snack bar. The
entire wall directly opposite the
entrance side will be constructed
of  glass.
On the glass the names of ell
B.C. men who died in the past
war will be etched. Outside the
window will be an expansive
lawn in the center of which a
cenotaph will be erected. The
sitt of the building—behind the
stadium—will afford, from this
window, a full view of the inlet
and the mountains. This treatment was designed to combine
the utility of the building with
the reverance of the memorial
theme.
POOL PLANNED
The 40 by 80 foot swimming
pool will be located to the left
of the foyer. It will be equipped
with a spectator capacity of over
500. To insure perfect lighting,
important in pool design, the
entire west wall will be of glass.
On the opposite side of the
foyer entrance to the main gym
is gained. The floor will accomodate at least three full sized
basketball courts. The permanent
seating capacity will probably
exceed 3000 and will be supplemented by collapsable bleachers
seating  2000  to  3000.
The far end of the main gym
is designed to fold back giving
entrance to the smaller gym
floor located behind. Also in this

In the meantime the financial
aspect of the Memorial Drive
is still being pressed. Fred Bolton, Alumni representative on
the committee, is conducting an

alumni. »Official report that the
results have been encouraging,
Arthur Sager, public relations
officer for the university is conducting a canvass of the faculty

Changes in the set-up of the Women's Athletic Association parallel to
MAD were discussed by Dean of Women, Miss M. Dorothy Mawdsley;
Pat Macintosh, president of WAA and
Student Council members.
Recommendations of the meeting
voiced by Miss Macintosh at the AMS
general meeting Thursday, March 20
included the following additions to
the WAA set-up:
1. That each girl be allowed to
play only one major sport. Reason
for this stand is to guard the health
of any girl who undertakes too ambitious a sports program.
2. Every girl playing a major sport
must be suitably trained for that activity. In this way each girl will
receive maximum benefit from her
exercise and be able' to perform to the
best of her abilities.
3. That every girl have a medical
examination before being allowed to
take part in a major sport.
4. That finances in the WAA be a
separate fund to those in MAD.
Red Cross Work
Ends Next Year
Red Cross work for coeds will be
discontinued next year it was decided at the annual Women's Undergraduate Society meeting Monday
March 17.
A motion was passed discontinuing
all Red Cross work, in the form of
either knitting or sewing on the
recommendation of Nora Clarke,
vice-president of WUS.
Red Cross work was required during the war and the past session from
all sorority and Phrateres pledges.
During the war, other courses, In the
form of First Aid, Home Nursing,
Day Nursery, Map Reading, Motor
Mechanics and Typing were offered.
The war's end saw only sewing and
knitting continued as part of the women's university work.
Red Cross room sewing machines,
bought by the AMS for war work,
will be sold and the proceeds donated
to the Red Cross.

One of the many paintings by Jack L. Shadbolt which is
currently being exhibited in the Mildred Brock Room of Brock
Hall. The collection contains both oils and watercolors.
Surrealism A Product Of
Frustration Says Artist
By DAVE DARVILL
Mr. Jack L. Shadbolt, prominent Vancouver artist, expressed the opinion that "surrealistic art is a product of the
general frustration of the times" at an interview held Tuesday.
An exhibition of Mr. Shadbolt's oils<^
and watercolors opened in the Mil
dred Brock Room, Brock Hall, Tuesday, March 18 and will remain on display to students and faculty of the
University of British Columbia until
April 5.
DISTINCTION
When asked about his views on
surrealism, Mr. Shadbolt made a
distinction between ihe work of Picasso and other surrealistic artists.
"Picasso's work", he said, "is distinct
with its psychological expression of the
form." This artist suggests that the
social after-effect of war will continue to be in evidence in this and
other forms of painting.
Mr. Shadbolt, who was strongly influenced by the "Group of Seven"
school of artists, notes a trend in
Canadian art toward the greater use
of this social environment. This is not
able in his impressions of Vancouver
street and waterfront scenes, which
are among his paintings now on display,
SYMBOLISM
One of the largest and most striking
canvasses in the exhibition is the oil
painting entitled "The Dogs". In this
picture he symbolizes the ruin, brutality and contention which follows
in the path of war. His aim is to convey this idea to the viewer by "using
color in an expressive way."
Mr. Shadbolt was born in England
and came to live in Victoria at the
age of four. He attended Victoria
High School, Victoria College and the
Provincial Normal School. While in
Victoria he met the late Canadian
artist, Emily Carr, whom he considers to be "the first major expressionist painter in Canada."

with malice aforethought
By PETER REMNANT
WHAT IS ART ?
Near the beginning of the constitution of
UNESCO—the United Nations Educational,
Scientific and Cultural Organization—is to be
found the statement 'that ignorance of each
other's ways and lives has been a common cause
of that suspicion and mistrust between the
peoples of the world through which their differences have all too often broken into war'.
The truth of this statement is very plain—and
it is as true today as it has ever been—but the
question is, just what part is culture, in the
rather arbitrary form of fine art, going to play
in the struggle for mutual understand ingfiSfid
respect between all people?
When Matthew Arnold says about old Sophocles, that he 'saw life steadily, and saw it
whole', he means just that. He means that
Sophocles was able, by the intuitive insight of
his genius, to grasp a world- full and complete,
in scope of his comprehension. Shakespeare,
again, was such another—he had the magical
power of so detaching himself from his immediate surroundings that he was able to attain a
prospective of all time—and yet never lose
contact with his own day.
For the rest of us, our vision is blocked by
the immediate present—our environment so
crowds upon us that at best we barely'escape
suffocation by it. The shimmering jazz of
detail blots out the underlying form and leaves
us clutching for a torn shred of existence—
predestined to amputation and frustration..
No man ever saw this feature of life more
clearly than did Schopenhauer—and for release
and freedom he turned to art, finding in it a
haven from the twin hells of boredoms* and
desire.
THE TIMELESS CORE
It seems scarcely necessary, however, to
follow that prince of pessimists into his realm of
Ideas—for the more nearly normal, the far
more satisfying aim, through art, is release
from the immediate and superficial now, into a
deeper and more timeless core of life—into an
intuition of the whole of things, and the place
of the individual therein.
Tlie initial step in the process is in the hands
of the artist—by his power he is able to extract
from the events and situations of the moment
those forms and qualities which mirror the
timeless, and to so set them down in his particular medium as to make them available to
the layman.
DILETTANTE AND SYMPATHY
At this point, however, the creation of the
work of art is only half completed—the listener
or the spectator must himself be to some extent
an artist in his appreciation of the work.
Unless he is to take the easy and incomplete
way of art as a diversion and momentary
amusement—the way of the dilettante— he must
force his own personality into sympathy with
the work of art. Beauty in art does not lie in
the surface prettiness, but is a deeper and more
vital thing—the reason that a hideous and tortured product of art can be supremely beautiful lies in this distinction between surface
beauty and a beauty rooted in the deep human
content of the work.
Thus it is that in art is to be found the most
complete understanding of and sympathy with
all people at all times—as the supreme religious
experience is the intuitive realization of oneness with the universe, so the supreme aesthetic experience is the realization of oneness with
all mankind.
ULTIMATE GOAL
And yet farther than this- and much closer,
lies the ultimate goal of culture, in the understanding of the individual self. Because although we are accustomed to take for granted
the ability to know our own personalities—
such knowledge can only come through experience—and the experience of an individual
is necessarily limited. We must supply this
lack through the experience of others—in the
products of fine art we find in the common
springs of all human nature the key to ourselves.

Editor Speaks
To UBC Club
Finland is not subject to Russian
military occupation nor are the Russians exerting any influence on tlie
national government, according to
Unto Makela, editor of a Finnish
Canadian newspaper, who addressed
a Social Problems Club meeting Tuesday.
Mr, Makela, who has just returned
from a tour of Finland made on the
invitation of the Finnish People's
Democratic League, denied that there
were any foreign troops in Finland
"beyond a few officers, both Russian and British, who are members
of   the  Reparations  Committee."
EXPENSES
He explained that since the war,
government expense had jumped
from 15% to 43% of the national income. However, he added, the 1300
million reparations bill was not considered unjust in left-wing quarters.
"Over an eight-year period it would
amount to five percent of the total
income," he said.
Political liberty was now greater
than it had ever been, Makela pointed out. He cited instances of former
discriminations against Communists,
notably the purging of thirty thousand Reds after the Finnish White-Red
clash of 1918.
JUSTICE
Finns who fought against Franco
with the International Brigade were
arrested on their return to their own
country, whereas those who fought
on the Fascist side went free.
Makela commented that although
he was often asked questions about
the $3 billion damage inflicted by
Russia on Finland, "nobody mentioned the destruction of northern
Finnish towns by the Germans."

The Story Of Three
Three women sit in the Administration building all day long
behind a door marked "C" and
wait for people to phone them at
ALma 1191, on the University of
British Columbia campus.
Telephone number of the three
—Mrs. E. N. Irving, Miss G. M.
Hallett and Mrs. N. Bruce—ia
cherished in notebooks of professors, students and all who do
business with UBC for the trio are
switchboard operators and, to
quote Mrs. Irving, "We handle
one of the busiest exchangee in
town."
BOARDS
In their Administration building office is a desk and two
switchboards. Above the switchboards stand what look like two
giant punchboards and on these
boards are listed the names of department heads and their staffs.
"We like the party to ask for a
person by name rather than by
department," said Mrs. Irving,
pointing out lists of departments
and their names.
Momentarily resting her ringers,
Mrs. Irving paused to explain the
maze of wires. "We have 250 local
lines." she began. "Twenty-one
lines connect the two switchboards to central and as many as
twelve people use the same campus telephone. We hook up night
cords at 5:30 p.m. and take them
down again in the morning at
8:30."
Enjoying her ten minute break,
Mrs. Irvung explained that only in
an emergency, "and that means a
matter of life and death", do any
of the staff try to locate a student.
EXAMPLE
"A call came through one
morning," she reminisced. "The
mother of a student insisted that
her message was an emergency.
So we scouted around trying to
find the student. In the meantime we learned the reason for the
emergency call: the student had
forgotten his lunch. His mother
wondered if someone could take '
it out to him."
Miss Hallett then remembered
the frequent Aggie calls, "Have
you got any fresh eggs today?"

HOLIDAY JOBS
Graduates in Engineering, Mathematics and Physics interested in permanent and summer employment
with the National Research Council
may apply for positions through the
office of Col. G. M. Shrum, of the
Extension Department.
"Applications should be„ made as
soon as possible as recommendations
must be sent to the Board of Selection by the middle of March," said
Col. Shrum.
Fluorescent lighting and cold storage facilities are only two
of the many features of the new Agricultural Pavilion now
under construction on the UBC farm.
The building, which will be used by^-
all     branches    of    the    Agriculture
Faculty,  has seating space for some
i70 students in a sloping tier at the
north end.
REFRIGERATION
At the south end, on a raised platform are refrigeration facilities which
will provide storage for meats and
other perishable products. The centra), floor can be used for judging
animals, and will enable classes to
have a clear view of the livestock.
Professor H. M. King, Head of the
Department of Animal Husbandry,
says, "The Pavilion will fill a want
md need of long standing. Since
1918, there have been no adequate
facilities for judging classes, animals
srimply being tied to a tree or fence,
or judged inside in their stalls. The
present enrollment of students make
jidging that much more difficult."
"The Pavilion will provide a real
use in Junior Classes", he added,
"The boys' and girls' calf clubs and
agricultural evening courses wiVl be
much easier to conduct with these
new facilities."
FILMS POPULAR
Projection equipment will be installed so that movies and slides can
be shown. These films are becoming
increasingly popular, especially in
short courses such as the "Rural Leadership" extension course at present
on the campus.
The Pavilion is classed as a permanent building, and will contain
a Farm office. It will be heated by
an oil burning unit designed alse
to heat the nearby Animal Nutrition
building.

Their concern is due not to a possi-1
bility that present conditions will bc
protracted to a time when the girls
will be wrestling with budgets and
caloric talleys, but to the hard fact
that they are wrestling with them
now.
The girls are taking their turn at a
v/eek-long stint managing, under
faculty supervisor Miss C. Rose, a
furnished four-room home at Acadia
Camp. In surroundings that simulate
as closely as possible the conditions
they will run up against in real-life,
t.hey test the theory they have learned
during the 1,2-unit Home Management course.
GUESTS FOR DINNER
Reclining in the upholstered rock-
maple furniture of the wine and green
livingroom, the girls explained, to a
reporter that they had just had guests
for dinner (part of 'their curriculum),
which was why they were still wearing aprons at 8:30 p.m,
Tonight they were off their- time
budget, they said, due to many minutes wasted while struggling with a
faulty electrical appliance.
Of all their responsibilities, which
includes money management, food
management, and time saving, the
girls felt that marketing was the hardest to cope with—"It's the rising
prices, especially in the meat line,"
Doreen said.
THE FAMILY WASH
"Our fifteen-dollai budget doesn't
allow for steak every night," Leslie
added,
ITewever, both girls insisted that
they thoroughly enjoyed their housekeeping, and breezed through everything from the family wash (towels,
linen, and dishcloths) to the cooking
12800 calorics per meal, balanced for
vitamins, minerals and market cost).
They experiment in what is undoubtedly the pleasantest laboratory
on the campus, containing four buff-
painted plywood-walled rooms plus
a modem bathroom equipped with
tub and shower.
The compact kitchen-dinette looks
like a Good Housekeeping advertisement, comes equipped with a four-
l'oot General Electric refrigerator and
enamelled Hot Point electric range.
When asked how the Home Economic
department managed to obtain them,
Miss Rose replied that it was not yet
quite clear to themselves.
In spite of its apparent perfection,
the kitchen is still "incomplete". A
pop-up toaster was conspicuous by
its absence, because "they cost $32."
In the meantime, the household
browns its bread in a battered toaster
that was third prize in a raffle many
years ago.

Songs by the Musical Society Glee
Club under direction of C. Haydn
Williams, piano numbers by campus
artists and a collection in aid of
the International Student Service
formed the Special Events Committee's noon hour presentation in the
auditorium Tuesday, March 18.
Glee Club singers excelled in their
renditions of "Loves Old Sweet Song"
and "Hail UBC". Particularly impressive were sustained notes in "When
Day is Done."
Pianist for the Glee Club, Pamela
McTaggart-Crown hushed the audience with her interpretation of ''Presto" by Mendelsohn. Playing from
memory Debussy's: "Clair de Lune,"
Miss . MlcTaggarti-Crown's delicate
touch, her complete control shown in
her poise and technique prove her a
true artist.
The Prichard twins, Catherine and
Mary attempted two difficult pieces,
Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue", and
Russell's "Witches Flight". Despite
their nervousness the twins played
well but in a forced manner, for
the tempo was too quick. Some intricate passages were handled with
dexterity.

FREE COLUMNS
Hail and farewell, my short-panted savants.
You know, having editorial carte blanche
to belabor or embrace any old topic at all is
quite a jolly state of affairs to be in. With a
whole wide world of opinion from which to
pick and choose, a campus column—like virtue
—becomes its own reward. You wouldn't
dream of taking money for it either. And you
are then left with the happy alternative of surrendering both, without charge, at least once a
week, under the heading of extra-curricular
activity.
The only unhappy part about any such
freedom of choice, though, lies in the necessity
of deciding what to choose. And so it is, at
times, that one almost wished that the Features
Editor (who roughly corresponds to the pastry
chef in this beanery of the printed word)
would hand out memos containing a list of
topics; as if to say: "Pick what you like, but
pick from this."
SEALS AND SHACKLES
The Features Editor, however, doesn't go
that far. * He knows better. His performing
seals of print would get sulky, howl to highest
heaven about gags, shackles, restraints and
restrictions, star chambers, inquisitions and—
most smeary epithet—W. Randolph Hearst.
Then he would be beaten over the head with
his own Freedomofthapress.
Our F.E., fortunately, believes that shackles

And therein lies a moral. Given technical
freedom to dally with Greta, we dilly instead

as wise,
Partly out of impishness, partly from sheer
spite, we hereby give another 8000—plus free
plugs to the 25-cent Penguin edition of a book
entitled "Heavenly Discourse" by Charles Ers-
kine Scott Wood. Added to the 160,000 free
plugs given to this little book in two issues of
downtown dailies, that makes—my abascus,
please, F.E.—a grand total of 168,000 gratuitous
recommendations for the banned little booklet
inside of four days. Book-banners- please note.
The harder you ban it, the harder we'll plug
it. And the net result of our joint efforts, you
termite-souled touts of thought control, may
well be the purchase of a new printing press by
the book's publishers to keep up with the demand. Will you never learn, you fat-headed
foemen of free speech?
. MALODOROUS DISCOURSE
Described as a satire on man, "Heayenly
Discourse" was banned in Canada in 1927 as
the result of the petition of a church group
which labelled the work "irreverent and blasphemous." Remembering Voltaire, (whom the
clerics would cheerfully have drowned, alive
and whole, had they not been divorced from
the power of doing so) what better recommendation could any book have?
Frankly, we haven't read "Heavenly Discourse".   For all we know, it may be a mal-

UBC STUDENT MINISTERS
SPREAD GOSPEL IN B.C.
By ED ARROL
Six students from Union College will mount pulpits in rural
British Columbia this summer to preach the Word of God to
congregations that cannot support full-time parsons.
Applying the fruits oi their theo-^
logical studies to the mission field,
these potential ministers are bringing
religion to the by-ways. Their rewards? Room and board, a few extra
dollars and practical experience in
helping people find themselves
through religion.
POPULAR
Last year, student Russell Finley
worked so hard at his seven point
circuit that the people of Wardner,
B.C. want him back again. With
Wardner as home base Finley cycles
to three of his points each alternate
Sunday. In this way he preaches
four sermons a week.
In his Union College office Professor Basil Mathews produced a tentative list of students and the places
they will preach at this summer.
Theological student MacMechan is to
preach at Texada Island, and Stewart
at Deep Cove. Percy Mallett will g j
to Port Kells, Raymond McCfill t.

li
can- em
By LAURIE DYER
THE END OF ,THE TRAIL
A quick galnce at The UBYSSEY signature on the front
page will tell you that this is issue No. 59. Now I don't suppose
that means a great deal to the average reader, but to the gentry
of the Pub, it means that there is only one issue to live for, and
after that, we prepare to step forth into the great darkness of
the few weeks beyond. To yours truly, it meant that it was
time to write the proverbial swan song that comes from the
pen of every sports editor at about this time in his career.
The first thing to do was to take a look at the efforts of
others who have gone before. Then there was a short conversation with the immortal sports ed. of last year's sheet, Luke
(Graduate Manager) Moyls. But all the efforts of the past are
far from adequate to express the thoughts in the mind of a
sports editor who was fortunate enough to work on the desk
in 1946-47.
We've Taken Quite A Step
For as dear old UBC grew out of its childhood to a sturdy
tower of strength, so did the world of sport take a great step
forward. Many things have taken place this year, that have
helped the Blue and Gold to be recognized as an up-and-coming
university with plenty of potentialities in every fiield.
Probably the greatest single step was out entry into the
Conference grid loop. Everyone knows that from the point of
view of winning games, UBC could hardly be called successful.
But in that we have expanded our scope of big time sports activities to a field in which our Conference opponents have virtually been brought up and in that we were able to give them a
fight, we have accomplished something, More important, we
have gained knowledge and practice that are going to help us
put up a much better show in the future.
What Of The Future
We could probably fill the whole page easily if we allowed
memories of the year to carry us on like this. Reminiscing of
a year which featured so many successful events is very easy.
But far more impotrant to a university which, like UBC, is
growing larger and more powerful every year is the question of
the future. And in those thoughts, we think not only of the
University itself but of the glory that the students will bring to
UBC as they hit the sportlight, holding high the Blue and Gold.
Indeed, hings look bright for sport at UBC. As we've said
before, if spirit counts for anything, the wearers of the Blue and
Gold can't go wrong. We can look forward to a good year on
the very practical basis of what we have seen this year. We are
even going to see rugger and basketball games with University
of California next week. Yes, if this has been a great year for
sports, next year should be terrific.
A Good Year On The Desk
And just as it's been a good year in sports, it has been a
really fine year for yours truly. In fact, it has been a privilege
to work on the desk during this year when UBC was taking
such large steps towards future fame.
But without the help of the faithful guys and gals who have
helped out this year, things would surely have been a total loss.
In particular, I want to mention Chick Turner, Hal Tennant,
Nev Tompkins and Hal Murphy—all of whom have done more
than their share of work throughout the year. To the rest of the
writers—you all know who you are—I want to thank you too.
Yes, it's been a great year on the desk for us all.
And so here we are at the end of the last page for this year.
And I've got to agree with Luke, and Chuck Claridge who went
before Luke, that there are easier jobs than writing your final
column. But now, it's time to wipe away the tears, cover my
favorite typewriter and creep away. One thing is for sure—
here is one boy who won't forget his year as sports editor of the
1946-47 Ubyssey.

The rugby seiies is tied with a

the first game when their weight
assisted greatly to run up a 24-21

days later when, with the help of
Don Ncsbil's scientific kicking, they
came out on  top.
Big threat of the American squad
is the weight of the scrum which

With exam time fast approaching
the weekend series promises to be
the last major athletic show of the
