Premier Hart Officiates
EVERYTHING'S "ON THE RECORD" now at Student Council meetings. A war-developed
wire recorder purchased by the AMS preserves for posterity the decisions of Council- Here,
AMS secretary Taddy Knapp demonstrates the new pride and joy of Councillors.
Council Has Stormy Session
On Liquor At AMS Function
The liquor question flared into the open Monday night
when Council, at the end of a stormy one-and-one-half-hour
session, drafted a motion empowering the Discipline Committee
to enforce Article XI of the Alma Mater Code, barring liquor
and drunkenness at AMS sponsored functions.
The   motion   came   after   Council *
twice  went   into   closed   session.   It
passed with a vote of six to three,
the chairman, Grant Livingstone, not
The motiion strictly compelled the
Discipline Committee to prosecute
anyone displaying "drunkenness, disorderly or unseemly conduct" and
anyone showing "clear evidence of
actual drinking", at student functions
both on and oft* the campus.
Opposing the motion were Bob Bagnall, Nora Clarke, and Dave Comparelli. Bagnall said that the motion
would "hit against every revenue-
producing function" at University,
and added that the article would not
be enforceable at off-campus funct-
Miss Clarke objected on the basis
that the word "evidence" was not
clearly defined. She maintained that
no action should be taken against a
student unless his conduct was disorderly, and that only "open" drinking should be regarded as disorderly
Dave Comparelli argued that tho
motion was merely a "law of prohibition". He also noted that those who
had voted in favor of the motion were
Rosemary Hodgins, UBC representative, voted in favor of the
motion on the understanding that
strict enforcement of the article would
be carried out by the Discipline Committee, and that enforcement would
be carried out at both on-campus and
off-campus functions.
Council Rejects
Ball Petitions
Petitions to change the scene of the
Fall Ball failed to influence the Student Council at their meeting Monday
The opinions of 300 students were
rejected as a motion was passed in
support of Council's policy to return
Varsity functions  to the  campus.
The motion to hold the annual Fall
event in the Armory had previously
been accepted by the Undergraduate
Societies Committee and the Fall
Ball committee.
Priority Rooms OK
For Minor Clubs
Clarifying a statement made last
week with regard to room bookings
by minor clubs, Grant Livingstone,
president of the Alma Mater Society,
said yestefday that they can not be
ousted from priority rooms such as
Arts 100, after confirmation of their
reservation. Confirmation is made one
week before  the  date reserved.
Under the ruling, minor clubs such
as political clubs can reserve strategic
rooms ahead for important meetings.
However, ii a request for the room is
made by a major club before confirmation,  they  have  priority.
UBC Scientists Aid In
Fight Against Cholera
UBC  scientists  added  their  life-saving  contribution  last
week to the world's fight against raging cholera in the Middle
Tubes of cholera organisms were *>-
sped by air from campus laboratories
to the Hebrew University at Jerusalem. Scientists there will use wnr-
devteli ped techniques to extract precious cholera vaccine from the Canadian organisms,
They will use manufacturing methods first developed in North America
by Dr. C. E. Dolman and L. E, Ranta,
of the UBC bacteriology department.
As members of the Connaught Medical Research Laboratories engaged in
wartime experimentation, the two
university scientists worked in secrecy   to  develop  the  cholera  vaccina.
The vaccine is now made in Toronto, but sent to UBC for tests.
Palestine scientists will use it to stem
the tide of epidemic before it spreads
from Egypt.
USA Invaders
Escape Wrath
Of Councillors
"The puerile and irresponsible minority" who are alleged
to have conducted themselvevs
improperly under AMS liquor:
regulations at the Bellingham
Invasion, October 11, will escape legal action by the Discipline Committee, Grant Livingstone disclosed yesterday.
Livingstone's announcement that
prosecution would be withheld coincided with a Student Council decision
Monday night which declared that
in future all offenders against the
liquor provision would be hailed into
a student courtroom.
Article 11 states that there shall be
no drinking of intoxicating liquors,
drunken or disorderly conduct at
AMS functions on or off the campus.
In establishing the new enforcement
policy for the article, Livingstone
believes it will prevent future functions from being jeopardized.
"This ruling is an attempt to prevent any recurrence of the unfortunate bad publicity for tho University which arose out of the invasion.
"The conduct of the offending minority almost offset, in the public mind,
the good clean time and the boost
to UBC spirit given by the overwhelming majority of the invasion force.'
he said in a release to the Daily
"Some of the guilty individuals
have been dealt with by the civil authorities and some privately," he added.
While no formal action will be
ordered at this late date, the 'exaggeration of such incidents as ocur-
red has forced Council to establish a
policy of enforcement of the article
to prevent future functions from being jeopardized."
The new policy requires enforcement of the article "to the detriment
of that minority but in the interests
of successful functions for the majority."
"No one who went to Bellingham
ror enjoyment and who did not interfere with the enjoyment of others
nor damaged the reputation of the
University need be worried by the
new ruling," he said.
At Building Ceremony
Vetoes WUS
Women's rights came under
fire Monday night as Council
vetoed WUS authority over
the Mildred Brock Room in
order to make special arrangements for the Liberal Club
reception for Hon. Paul Martin, to be held here Thursday-
Mr. Martin, federal minister of
national health and welfare, will be
on the campus Thursday to address a
Student meeting at 12:30 p.m. in tlie
The issue centred around the fact
that neither the Liberal Club nor
Council itself had notified Nora
Clarke, WUS president, that the room
was to be used on that date.
Miss Clarke argued that the matter
should be put to the WUS executive,
and since the next meting of the executive will not be held until after
the reception for Mr. Martin, Grant
Livingstone asked if Miss Clarke
would grant special permission on
this occasion.
Miss Clarke refused to comply with
the request, and Council, headed by,
Jerry Macdonald, promptly overrode
WUS authority on the matter, and put
through a motion enabling the reception to be held, although a stipulation that food was not to be consumed at the reception was inserted.
Also drafted was a letter of apology
that Miss Clarke was not informed
earlier of the proposed reception.
The Twenty-first Autumn Congregation for the conferring of
degrees will be held on Wednesday, October 29th, at 2:30 p.m.
in the Auditorium.
All lectures and laboratories
will be cancelled from 2:00 p.m.
on  Wednesday,  October  29th.
Ruddeli Sees BCER
In 'Dictator' Role
B. C. Electric officials were charged
with "dictating to city council" over
franchise and taxat'on matters Tuesday by Elgin Ruddeli, forthcoming
civic reform candidate in Vancouver
Speaking at the meeting of the
Student Labor-Progressive Club, the
aldermanic candidate also levelled
charges of "padding of expense accounts" against the company .
"The BCER has always had its own
way with the City council," lie
charged. "The council has never stood
up for a square deal. If the city got
the taxes it deserves from the BCER
their revenue would be increased by
1V2  million  dollars."
Full Schedule Planned
For Congregation Day
UBC's first permanent building to be completed in more
than 20 years will be officially opened by government and university dignitaries during impressive ceremonies to be held
today in the main lecture room of the university's new Physics
Premier   John   Hart,   under   whose <S> ■	
administration UBC has mushroomed
to Canada's second university, will
hand the keys of the building to
Chancellor Eric W. Hamber.
Earlier in the day, at fall congregation, the retiring Premier will receive an honorary Doctor of Laws
degree from UBC Chancellor Eric W.
The physics building ceremony is
scheduled for 4:30 p.m., following the
awarding of degrees which is to be
held at 2:45 p.m.
At another ceremony rich in significance for UBC students, undergraduate "trekkers" of 1922 will
gather at their simple stone cairn
to commemorate the event.
They will mark the twenty-fifth
anniversary of their famous march
with ceremonies beginning at 5 p.m.
before the cairn.
In the event of rain, the "trekkers"
will meet in the Armory.
Members of the publicity committee
in 1922-23 who circulated petitions to
have UBC moved to Point Grey and
marched through Vancouver with
signs and floats will attend the unique
John A. Grant or J. V. Clyne,
members of the publicity committee
in their student days, will address
the gathering.
Three hundred UBC students will
receive sheepskins at fall congregation ceremonies in the auditorium.
Four distinguished scientists, two
from the United States, will receive
honorary degrees of Doctor of Science.
They are: Lee Alvin DuBridge,
president of California Institute of
Technology; Ernest Orlando Lawrence, of the department of physics
at the University of California, Berkeley; Chalmers J. Mackenzie, presi-

Engineers Must
Pay Show Damages
Science students who snaked
through the Capitol theatre two weeks
ago will be required to pay the damage they caused.
Management of the theatre stated
Monday that students had marched
over the stage, breaking several
lights. Future incidents such as this
might result in cancellation of all
reduced admission privileges, theatre
officials said.
Jerry Macdonald, representing Students Council, met with Vogue
theatre officials Monday to determine if Odeon theatres will extend
similar privileges to students.
The AMS has offered to nay for
the Capitol Theatre damage but it
has requested that all students concerned make good the amount through
the Engineer's Undergraduate Society.
Decorations Add Color,
Life To 'Ugly Duckling'
A decorator's magic touch will transform UBC's "ugly
duckling" Armory into a romantic, colorful cabaret for the
University's Fall Ball.
 <S>   That's the promise of Fall Ball officials who plan to combine arching
AMS Passes For
Husbands, Wives
Married students at the UBC ca.i
get their "better half" into AMS
functions under privileges of the student pass system.
AMS cards will be stamped in Student Council offices extending the
cards to husbands or wives of married
students if some proof of marriage
is presented.
Disaster befell the council cookies Monday night when
Bob Harwood stumbled and showered three dozen chocolate cookies in all directions during the regular session of
the august campus legislators.
For the first time in  many  years  council  meeting proceeded without the customary nibbling between motions.
Grant Livingstone immediately called for a motion
barring Harwood from serving the big plate of cookies. He
received council's unanimous approval.
In the future, Gordon Baum, sophomore member, will
resume his customary office of "administrator of the cookie
colored lights, draperies and raised
lounges to "dress up" the drab parade-square building.
An army of cleaners will apply
'spit and polish" to the dusty cement
floor, giving it a complete treatment
of sweeping,  mopping and polishing.
In tlie north-west corner an elevated bandstand will face a diagonal
dance floor. The lounge will also be
elevated to project onto the floor
from the north-east corner.
Furniture from the lounge will be
brought from the Brock and other
students lounges on the campus.
Borrowed partitioning will cut tlie
lounge off from the rest of the floor.
Further partitioning will mark off
the check-room in the south-east
corner. Branching out diagonally
from tlie entrance will be a counter
from which refreshments will be
served buffet style. Along the west
wall will be another lounge.
Around the dance floor will be
room for tab^ where students may
sit and watch the floor show. The
over-all plan calls for a. complete
revision of the old crepe paper methods of decorating. Flood, spot and
colored gelatine lights will accentuate tlie geometric design of the rafters
and diagonals of the ceiling.
Drapes, instead of paper will cover
the corners where lockers might protrude to spoil the effect of the cabaret. PAGE 2

What has been a rumor every November
within memory has finally become an actual
Formal Christmas exams have been officially cancelled. Evidently the method for
examining students has been left to the judgment of the lecturers who shall set such
exams as they see fit and when they see fit
between now and the close of the session in
The student body,; we think, greets this
edict with mixed emotions, but on one point
they are in solid agreement: chance or un-
forewarned examinations are unsatisfactory.
It is altogether likely that this plan of
springing an exam without previous warning
will be applied in some courses—at least
one professor has already indicated as much
within our knowledge.
It is sometimes a little difficult to justify
a stand against chance exams since any such
defense is closely associated with what has
been known as "cramming"—widely considered a practice to be deprecated.
While it cannot be denied that this method of examination certainly precludes any
possibility of cramming, there are, on the
other hand, several rather concrete arguments that can be advanced in opposition
to the method.
It is a fact well known to psychologists,
that a review of material already learned
will greatly increase the ease of recall. The
average student has not sufficient time to
spend daily in reading over the work of the
past two months in preparation for a possible
exam the following day and at the same time
keep up with his day to day work.
What 'about a student who has a lab
until 10:30 p.m. or is indulging in a little
social relaxation the night before such an
exam? He is certainly at a disadvantage
when compared to a student who, just by
chance, has reviewed the material 12 hours
On the premise that exams are intended
to give, as accurately as possible, an index
of what a student actually knows, we do
not feel that testing by this method gives
maximum satisfaction to either the students
or the professors.
The Children's Hour
Ahoy, my sudoriferous little submers-
Are we not all fellow-dolphins, cast upon
the sea of life and disporting off the bows of
that great iron-bottomed voyager, the good
ship Time?
Then let us, today, exhale the warm
breath of contention from our lungs, tilt
our fins, give a kick of our flippers, and sink
beneath the wild, whitecapped controversies
of our age- Come down, fellow-dolphin; come
down to the bottle-green floor of life, from
where the passage of the ship of time is but
a thin shadow, slipping between the sand,
the seaweed and the sun. Come down, through
the froth of ephemeral change and the spume-
filled roar of argument, to the sandy floor of
eternity, amidst the rooted, unchanging, eternal and everlasting things of this our life.
In short, let us speak of men, of women
and Romance.
So speaking, let us talk of the true story
of Mrs. Harold Sutton, of Norfolk, Va., and
the late Mr. Valentine Lawless, also of Norfolk, Va. One man and one woman, and
romance will follow.
Valentine Lawless. What a name, my
finny ones, to conjure with! It is a name to
be flung in bold, black letters against a
blazing theatre marquee- It is d'Artagnan,
with lace at his throat and a spreading red
stain upon his shirt. It is Errol Flynn springing out of Sherwood Forest, an epee in his
teeth. It is Sabatini, and galleons standing out
with the tide. It is Romance. And it ia Romance in Our Time.
You may have read the story of Valentine Lawless, lt is one of the greatest love
stories of our time. And you are lucky, for
reasons which you will perhaps never know,
if the story of Valentine Lawless reached
your ears. For it is a shaft of sunlight, cutting
through the smoke and fury of our paleo-
technic Iron Age; and illuminating before
your eyes the castled walls, the moats, the
very turrets of romance. It is a love story,
tuned to the dulcimers in the dusk of your
Valentine Lawless was an American G-I.
He was also a victim of unrequited love. Many
years ago, before America entered the war
and Valentine became a soldier, he fell in
love with a girl. The girl married another
man. It happens that way, sometimes, in life
as well as books.
Valentine never forgot her, though she
chose to be Mrs. Harold Sutton, rather than
Mrs. Valentine Lawless
The years slipped away. The war came;
and G.I. Lawless went overseas   One day,
overcome by the premonition that he "wouldn't come back" Valentine Lawless sat down
and wrote a letter to his brother, expressing
one last wish. In the event of his death, a
fund was to be created from his estate; and
that fund was to be used for this purpose:
One perfect rose, Valentine Lawless
willed, was to be delivered every week to
the girl he loved, for as long as she should
live. The name of its sender was not to be
Shortly after writing this letter, Valentine Lawless was killed in battle.
But no rose was ever delivered to the
girl he loved.
Valentine's sister, Margaret, claiming
that his property should properly revert to
his relatives, tied up the fallen warrior's
estate, valued at $4000, in a court action.
"It just isn't practical to use $4000 that
way" Margaret said.
Margaret was concerned, too, about the
power of a rose.
"I'm afraid maybe the arrival of a rose
every Saturday night might break up her
marriage," she added, speaking of Mrs. Sutton. "It seems to me it would come to no
good end"
And what of the girl, to whom Valentine,
as his last mortal wish, had bequeathed "one
perfect rose" for life?
"I learned of Valentine's last wish only a
few days ago" she informed questioners. "It's
very sad, but he was that sort of a person."
"I'm happily married now and I wouldn't
want the rose."
'Thus died Sir Valentine Lawless, unhappy knight, who most unpractically passed
away with his lady's name upon his lips, in
the year of our Lord, A.D. 1945.
He never knew, rest his soul in peace,
what we know now. He never knew, when he
caught his breath and died, that the love of
Valentine Lawless, which neither rejection,
nor the years between, nor even the cloak of
Death itself could kill, was all quite slain
when the girl he loved, all unthinking, raised
with her words this epitaph upon his grave:
"It's very sad—but he was that kind of a
And we in our turn, Sir Knight, will
never cease to marvel at the power of a rose
—a small red rose that you flung beyond the
reach of Death, to faU like a velvet, crimson
bomb amongst the small, frightened people
you left behind you; and made them tremble
for the strong edifice of their marriage.
O Valentine! Now you belong, not to
her, but to the ages.
Dear Sir:
It  is  quite  obvious  that  the Fall
Ball will be held in the parking lot.
Yours sincerely,
J. L.

The Editor,
The Dally Ubyssey.
Dear Sir:
Having read a most novel wedding announcement In your "Letters
to the Editor" column by Stuart
Smith, I feel moved to proffer my
congratulations. I hasten to add however, that I think Mr. Smith is going
to prove (1.) he is capable of assuming
responsibility, or (2.) eighty dollars a
month is sufficient for a married veteran, or (3.) eighty dollars a month
is obviously not enough for a married
veteran or whatever it Is that Mr.
Smith proposes to prove by getting
married at Christmas. Further, Mr.
Smith is to be congratulated for
saving $500 last summer.
Somebody should tell Mr. Smith the
facts of life, but seeing he is getting
married he will probably And them
out for himself. He will find that on
accepting congratulations for getting
married he must forego all future
congratulations for saving |500 by
working during a summer. He will
find that even If he goes out of town
in order to accept a relatively high
paid job and thus forego the
pleasures of city life and the company
of his wife, he will not be able to
save anything at all. If Mr. Smith
were to be congratulated in future,
as so many of his fellow student
vets have been in the past, on an addition to the family, he would find
that no matter what job he worked
at in the summer he would have to
find |30 to $50 a month in addition
to his DVA allowance in order to
provide even the most meagre living
for his family.
But enough of this crepe-hanging.
Mr. Smith is to be congratulated that
the student vets with whom he comes
in contact are so heartily satisfied
with the financial aspects of life that
he is not faced with the gloomy consciousness that his associates have
sordid money troubles. I would like
however to correct a couple of points
in Mr. Smith's letter that might
cause some misconceptions. First the
legion executive whom, I agree, are
experienced, did press the Dominion
government for an increase in grants
and desisted from further pressure
for a number of reasons, none of
which was that the veterans were
satisfied. Second, the majority of students on the campus seem to have
come here to obtain an education and
despite Mr. Smith's assertion that
they come to "arrive at financial stability and security" these students
seem aware that an extremely high
percentage of them are not going to
improve their financial position above
that of a skilled worker. Witness the
large number taking teachers training.
On the whole, Mr. Smith is to be
congratulated, he is so satisfied.

English Accent
The Editor,
The Daily Ubyssey
Dear Sir:
Since emigrating to Canada seven
months ago I have never been able
to find out why so many Canadians,
especially noticeable at UBC, insist
on acquiring some sort of an English
accent. Is there something to be
ashamed of in the Canadian accent
that so many try their best to lose it?
Surely these miserable attempts at
a pseudo-Oxford accent by certain
classes at UBC must be as irritating
to the average Canadian as they are
to anyone out here from England.
To have spent several war years in
England is no excuse for acquiring
a false accent—there must be almost
a thousand veterans at UBC who
have spent years in England but who
have not found it necessary to come
back to Canada with a new accent.
What is wrong with speaking like a
Canadian? What do Ubyssey readers

Vocal Support
The Editor,
The Daily Ubyssey,
University of British Columbia
Dear Sir:
Right now I am listening to the
UBC-Whitman football game, and I am
impressed by the woeful lack of vocal
support given to either team. I have
read in your paper of your attempts
to foster a greater interest in this
psychological necessity to a good
game, and while I am entirely in
favour of it, I find that I do not know
one single UBC yell! The point is
not to direct the finger of scorn at
my unacademic ignorance, but to serve
as an indication that there must be
many more like me.
Then, may I suggest that responsible
people in that section of the student
body which has to do with this sort
of thing, obtain official permission
for one week to visit the larger classrooms on the campus for the express
purpose of leading those assembled
for lectures in the various varsity
yells, if only for a period of two to
three minutes at the beginning of the
lecture. As an aid, one yell could be
placed in each large lecture room,
on the board, and left for the period
of a week.
Sure, I know the yells are in the
different publications but let's have
a little practice, and a little fun, and
at the same time build up a little
of that old school spirit which is so
evident in its absence.
Yellfully yours,
Where's Is?
Dear Sir:
You Sir have committed an unpardonable crime! In your editorial
of October 24, you have not only
given us an incomplete sentence,
but you have left us in suspence as
to what sage comment you might
have made.
My weekend was ruined. In all
probability thousands of other students had their weekends ruined too.
What tragedy! All those tormented
students, vainly trying to decide what
you meant—or had intended to mean.
This is a grave matter indeed. What
retribution will you make for this
Are there not enough things now to
torture us—football games, political
clubs, fall bails, student's council,
women, letters to the editor, etc?
Must you add to our plight the mental
strain of attempting to read your
thoughts—when you haven't got any?
I have a hard enough time reading
my own thoughts, let alone those of
someone else.
What is this miserable sentence? I
quote, "Their contention that the
drill hall, given soft lights, tables,
professional caterers, and several hundred pounds of powdered borax,
might perfectly satisfy." See what I
mean . . .

Something For Nothing
3928 West 10th,
Vancouver, B.C.,
October 27, 1947.
The Editor,
The Daily Ubyssey
Dear Sir:
Mr. Smith, in characterizing request for an increase in grants as
a demand for "something for nothing," overlooks the fact that an increase now of 20 percent would just
about cover the drop In the real
value of money since the date the
grants were set at $60 and $80.
The government has, in effect, cut
our grants in the process of releasing
price controls and subsidies. Surely
a demand for a cost-of-living bonus,
as adopted earlier this year by the
National Conference of Student Veterans and the Canadian Legion, is
not unreasonable.
Yours truly,
Jack Howard.

The personal charm of a widely travelled doctor of music,
Ida Halpern, adds much to the attractiveness of the course she
Doctor Halpern, noted authority on music, is giving a
course on modern music appreciation for the Extension Department at Vancouver Normal School every Thursday evening.
Modem music ranging from Chopin
to Shostokovich is explained by Dr.
Halpern who feels that "if people
would make a point of listening to
modern music without prejudices
they would soon get used to it and
begin to like it."
Dr. Halpern was born in Vienna and
received her doctorate at Vienna University.
After spending half a year under
Hitler's regime in Austria she and
her husband decided to leave Austria on a "vacation" and not return.
However lt was almost like "out oi
the fat into the Are" when Dr. Halpern joined the staff at the University
of Shanghai in 1938. It had just moved
to the International Settlement to be 50 STUDENTS
protected from the Japanese. About M ^dents are  enrolled   in
Dr. Halpern's present course.
Dr. Halpern suggests room for improvement in the university record
library since there are not enough
complete scores to go with the records. "Students should become more
conscious of score-reading, she adds.
During summer session Dr. Halpern
gave a course linking art to music
in the different cultural periods.
CBC Offers Show Time
UBC Gets WURF Chair
UBC has taken over the chairmanship of the Western Universities Radio
Ernie Perrault, president of the
University Radio Society, back from
the WURF conference in Saskatoon
reports major advances in inter-university radio.
Chief among these is an inter-
campus news service operated by the
"Hams" of each 0 fthe four western
Originated by the UBC Amateur
Radio Club, the idea was presented
to  the Conference by Perrault.
University news will be transmitted
by the "Hams" each evening, at a
time to be arranged, and will be distributed according to the facilities of
the member groups.
UBC will be the central body for
a script filing and exchange service.
All plays presented on each of the
member campuses will be filed and
will be available for speedy inter-
university exchange.
The fact that her hesitant Enj
was more appreciated by her Chinese
students than that of the English or
American professors greatly amused
Dr. Halpern.
From Shanghai, Dr. Halpern came
to Vancouver where she has taught
for the University Extension Department since 1942.
Webb Addresses
EIC Meeting
"Columbia Basin Water Resources
in Canada" will be the subject of an
address by C. E. Webb, district chief
engineer, Dominion Water and Power
Bureau, to the Engineering Institute
of Canada. The Branch will meet on
Wednesday, October 29 at 8:00 p.m.
in Salon "B" Hotel Vancouver.
At the present time the Executive
is completing plans for the Annual
Meeting which will be held Saturday,
November 22, 1947.
A trans-Canada network show, a
half hour every week for eight weeks
has been offered by CBC for the use
of WURF.
Two types of program idea for this
series has been submitted for approval
by the conference.
One type, using four weeks of the
series would provide a variety introduction to each campus featuring
choral groups, actors, instrumentalists
and script writers from those universities.
The other type planned is a quiz
show making use of both professors
and students.
Tills is the last week for all students in arts, home economics, commerce and physical education to get
their Totem photos.
The photographer, J. C. Walberer,
announced that starting next week
all applied science would be in line
for their photos.
The photographer also stated that
the finished photographs which are
included in the $1.50 fee would be on
the campus before Christmas.
Most graduates in Arts are taking
advantage of the special proof arrangement worked out this year by
the Totem and Mr. Walberer. Under
this set-up, graduates only may see
proofs of their sittings for an extra
charge of 50 cents.
A newsletter, to be the official organ
of the Federation will go to press
next week. It will contain news of
campus radio and articles on broadcasting.

LAURIE DYER, Acting Sports Editor
REPORTERS THIS ISSUE—Gil Gray, Bruce Saunders, Jack Melville, Shiela
Last night we were looking through the morgue (our
collection of past issues) and we discovered some interesting
slants on UBC hockey teams.
We went back to 1934 and found a report of a reborn UBC
squad in full swing. Although classed at that time as a minor
sport, games were played against the University of Washington
and several other American outfits- In spite of initial losses the
sport was apparently well supported.
Four years later, in 1938, we found that inter-collegiate
hockey had come into its own. The season was opened with a
memorable tour of Southern California where the Thunderbirds suffered two narrow defeats at the hands of the University
of Southern California. The score of one of these games was
as familiar as last Saturday's grid classic—7-6. Subsequently
the team defeated the University of Washington 6-0 and 2-1 but
suffered a couple of losses at the hands of Gonzaga University.
The coaches of that memorable team were John Owen and
Maurice Van Vliet.
Just before the war we ran across another UBC hockey
crew that participated in the Vancouver Senior Hockey and
besides took on the Washington Huskies for a couple of wins.
From The Faceoff
Why did we go to all this trouble? Well it seems that UBC
once more has a fighting hockey squad. Forgotten by the fans
because the games are never on the campus, but not forgotten
by hockey enthusiasts, the Blue and Gold puck chasers open
tonight in their* first game of the season.
Participating this year in the British Columbia senior B
League the hockeyists are playing in a high class league and
former air force coach Frank Frederickson has a high class
student lineup.
The players and their former teams are impressive. Varsity
teammates who played last year include Stu Johnstone, formerly of the Copper Cliff Redmen, Fred Andrews, RCAF overseas
squad, and Hugh Berry, Moose Jaw Canucks.
Having gained experience on teams all over the continent
there is plenty of puck savy among the team. Former teams
include Los Angeles Ramblers and Kansas City Pla-Mors
for Harrison Young; Calgary and Nanaimo for Wag Wagner;
Trail and Halifax Navy for Ken McLean. That is just a few
of the names on the starry lineup.
At The Blue Line
What is this Senior B League anyway? Well it's a bit more
than a city loop although it includes Vancouver White.Spots,
Woodward Beacons, B.C. Electric White Hawks, Fletcher
Locksmiths and Vancouver Indians. From New Westminster
come the Cubs and from Nanaimo the famous Clippers. Varsity
makes the total of teams come to eight. It looks to us like a
pretty fair setup.
Overtime Tonight
This is an auspicious moment for Hockey on the campus—
in spite of the transportation trouble- Sport in general has been
taking quite a beating from several sides at once—English
Rugger doesn't get much of a campus support; soccer gets
practically no fanfare at all; grass hockey doesn't interest many
people; and the only sport that really interests the campus
spectators is the ill-favored grid.
An auspicious moment for Ice Hockey indeed, for with
a powerful team, and nine thousand supporters, the Blue and
Gold icemen have every likelihood of going places.
Join us at the Forum tonight for the opening twin bill of
the season.
Vajda Ski Squad
Preps For Jump
What with the first sign of snow
on the local hills, Ski Coach Peter
Vajda is rapidly getting his stalwarts

Starting this Thursday noon in Arts
105, Coach Vajda plans to start dry
skiing technique classes, in preparation for the first heavy snow fall.
It is requested that all prospective
members of the ski team turn out to
this Thursday meeting,
Also, plans call for a jumping school
to be held at Mt, Baker or Stevens

Standings of organizations striving
to capture the coveted set of basketball strip are still incomplete, due to
the fact that many tickets have not
yet been returned to Luke Moyls at
his office in the Gym. Below are listed
the standings to date: —
Acadia    120
Betas  106
Kappa Sigs   99
Phi Delts   94
Psi U's   70
D U's   67
Moyls asks that all unsold tickets
and booster passes be returned to
him as soon as possible as it will be
impossible to determine the final
standing until they are in.
Ducats for the Homecoming game
this Saturday may be purchased at
the AMS office in the Brock, or from
Moyls in his office. Students are
warned to purchase early, as a crowd
of alums and others are expected to
turn out to the game. Price to students is 50 cents.
GUARING THE 'BIRD NEST—When the Thunderbirds of UBC take on the Grads at Saturday's
Homecoming fracas, "Bouncin' Bobby" Scarr will be filling one of the guard slots on the 'Bird
roster. Bob will be filling the shoes formerly oc :upied by the diminutive and popular captain
of last year's squad, Ron Weber. Now a grad, Ron may be in strip against his former teammates in the Saturday tilt.
Oregon Web foot Hoopmen Invade
Campus For November Hoop Card
In what may well be their
initial inter-collegiate fracas of
the year, the basketballing
Thunderbirds will meet the
Webfeet of the University of
Oregon on the campus maples
in a two-game series scheduled
for November 28, 29.
Plans are under way at the present
moment to bring UBC and Western
Washington together before the Oregon series, but nothing definite has
been secured as yet.
The yearly series against the Ore
gon quintet has become a matter of
standard procedure over the last four
years. It was back in the fall of '44
that the Webfeet first invaded the
campus. In that series, they defeated
the Van Vliet-coached 'Birds by four
points in each of the two games.
In the fall of '45, the year that UBC
took the Conference title, the two
squads played a home and home
series. Coach Osborne had the reigns
that year as the Blue and Gold men
lost their two on the home maples
but won the twin bill on the Eugene
Last year, it was the 'Birds turn
to travel but this time they lost their
two game series on the Oregon floors.
The Webfeet will be playing under
a new coach this year since Howard
"Hobby" Hobson has gone to Yale
to accept another post.
He has been succeeded by "Honest
John" Warren, a popular figure on the
Eugene Campus for many years. He
will be remembered as temporary
coach of the Oregon squad when first
they played here in 1944. He has now
taken over as head coach.
The University of Oregon team is
a member of the Pacific Coast Conference, a step above, the North West
Conference in which the 'Birds are
Bird Hoopmen
Battle Gradr
There's an old saying to the
effect that "Time marches on"
. . . but time is going to do an
about face next Saturday night
when a team of Varsity hoopla
greats of yesteryear will meet
the modern version of Thunderbird casaba artists. The contest will be a part of the large
program planned for Homecoming on the campus.
Hunk Henderson who is charge of
the grad squad has listed an impressive roster for the contest. He mentions such stars of the past as Ken
Wright, Dick Wright, Ole Bakken,
Sandy Robertson, Ron Weber, Harry
Franklin, Bud McLeod, Gordie Sykes
and possibilities of Ritchie Nicol and
Reg Clarkson turning out.
Among the others who have decided to come "back to life" are
Jimmy Bardsley, Bud Matheson, and
Hunk Henderson himself. Bardsley
and Henderson were both on the
"Wonder team" that came up with
the Dominion Championship way
back in 1937.
High scorer in the Inter-city finals
that year against Varsity was a young
man who was playing under the
colours of the Province team. That
man, a graduate of 1931, will be asked
to join the Grad roster also. He is
the well-known Director of Athletics
on the campus, Bob "Tony" Osborne.
One of the more recent grads is
Bud Matheson, who played on the
championship team of 1941, when the
Blue and Gold went on to take their
third   Dominion   Championship.
The present 'Bird quintet will be
out to defend the laurels they won
for themselves last year, when they
ranked second. Every man on last
years squad will be in action with the
exception of Ron Weber who graduated   last  spring.
Varsity Turfmen
Blank Vancouver
Two shut-outs, one a major defeat,
one a closely fought game, were
among the results of the week-end
grass hockey games. Both of these
shut-outs, Varsity's 7-0 blanking of
Vancouver A and East-India's 3-0
upset of the UBC team, were surprises.
Only two shots were fired at the
Varsity goal throughout the entire
game. Forward Les Bullen capitalized
on position playing to gather in four
passes and go on to score four goals.
Ned Larsen, Dave Pudney, and Bruce
E'enham rattled in one apiece.
At Brockton Point, the East-India
eleven took advantage of the slow
start of the UBC squad, capitalizing
on a slippery field that made play
difficult and awkward.
In another game, between Vancouver B and the Faculty, the Faculty
took a 4-3 win. The University
"Oldsters" ran up an early lead and
hung on grimly for the remainder of
the game. Warren, Thompson, and
Buckley combined in the goal-getting.
