Sciencemen Pack Meeting;
Lobby For Budget Change
Non-Confidence Vote
Defeated By Assembly
One of the stormiest sessions of many years rocked the
AMS meeting yesterday when Sciencemen rallied to move that
student sanction and approval should be given before any
Undergraduate Societies budgets are levied.
The motion was defeated by a vote3>
of 449 to 305.
If this motion had been passed it
would have constituted a vote of non-
confidence and would have forced the
Student Council to resign, said Grant
Livingstone, president of the AMS.
Livingstone's statement to the Daily
Ubyssey was corroborated by Treasurer Bob Harwood, and by all Council members interviewed.
The motion was raised by president of the Engineers' Undergraduate Society, Ronald Grantham following the report of the AMS fiscal
policy read by Harwood.
Grantham charged that Council had
acted unjustly by turning down the
science social budget last week before the fiscal policy had been passed at the general meeting.
He proposed that a general meeting of the AMS be called earlier in
the year for the purpose of clarifying the fiscfcl policy of the AMS
before the individual budgets are
Harwood snapped back that Grantham's motion was "ultravires, impractical, unreasonable" and would
necessitate at least one general AMS
meeting a week to execute.
Offering no suggestion as to how
his plan could be carried out Grantham kept his original motion on the
floor until Chairman Livingstone
called for the vote.
Ralph Huene, president of the Arte
Undergraduate Society, defended
Council's policy calling it a "fair one"
and stating that "we have elected
the Students Council and we must
have  confidence  in  them."
Huene denied Grantham's allegation
that other faculties were "up in arms"
at the Council slash.
The redheaded, burly leader of the
engineers   heatedly   demanded   that
"Council  do something about it."
He was backed by a mob of red-
sweatered sciencemen who fled the
stadium immediately the matter was
closed although there remained several points of AMS policy yet to be
Harwood defended the.Council action claiming the rule of 60 cents per
student in the faculty or one dollar
per student attending embraced in
the new ruling on faculty social functions dealt fairly with all faculties.
Rushees Register

One hundred and seventy-three potential "Greeks" registered for fraternity rushing at the AMS office up to
12:30 p.m., Thursday.
Registration continues until 4 p.m.
today but latecomers can register up
to 4 p.m. Monday. Tardy registrants
will be charged two dollars instead

$400 Monthly Pay
To Drive Manager
J. D. Penn McLeod, campaign
manager for UBC's war' memorial
gym drive earlier this year, received
$400 a month for his services, Treasurer Bob Harwood told the AMS
meeting in answer to a student's
question. *
• * *
Thursday's pncked meeting of students in the Stadium was the largest
Alma Mater Society rally in UBC
history. More than 3500 undergraduates overflowed the arena, established an all-time record.
» * *
An energetic student had a letter
to the editor in the offices of The
Daily Ubyssey barely 30 minutes after
the close of Thursday's general AMS
meeting. He had strong words for
UBC Sciencemen.
Lack of hospital facilities in Vancouver is the chief stumbling block
to UBC's proposed medical school,
Ken Bourns, president of the Premedical Undergraduate Society, declared in making his report to students.
«      i      *
Service in the AMS office has been
"stepped up immeasurably" by a
new system of specialization of jobs,
Treasurer   Harwood   said.
Students are reminded that the
last day for change of course is
October 6.
Hectic Session Approves
il A
To Address
Legion Meet
Dr. N. A. M. MacKenzie,
president of the University of
B.C., and honorary president
of University Branch, Canadian Legion will address the
first general meeting of campus
legionnaires for the 1947-48
term at 12:30 p.m. Tuesday,
October 7, in the Auditorium.
Election of working committees deferred from the annual meeting last
spring, is slated as the first order of
business. Branch President Perry Millar emphasizes for the information of
Legion members that whereas only
three members, including the Chairman, may be elected to each committee, volunteers may be added at the
discretion of the Executive.
In a statement to the Daily Ubyssey
on Thursday, Millar divulged brief
details of projects for the coming
Plans include full support of the
blood donor campaign, an aid program for Shaughnessy Hospital, continuation of efforts to obtain DVA
allowances for merchant seamen and
publication of a monthly newspaper
for Legion members.
Legion policy in future will be
based on an effort to spread the work
and activity over a maximum number of members in order to avoid last
year's situation where too few carried the load with unfortunate academic  consequences,  Millar  stated.
Millar called for a record turnout
of Legion members for the first meeting of the year in order "to get the
ball rolling."
Students Fill Stadium
On Controversial Issue
The student body has agreed to the formation of political
clubs on the campus.
AMS President Grant Livingstone threw the "politics"
issue to a general meeting of the Alma Mater Society Thursday
to settle once and for all the fiery issue which has flared on the
campus for more than a year.
Students   were   thoughtfully   silent <$-
as Livingstone read the amendment
to the AMS code that provides for
the formation of political clubs under the Literary and Scientific Executive.
Discussion that followed raged onward to indicate that this motion
was the major issue of the meeting
in the minds of most of the multitude.
The question kept the harried President calling for order as speakers
rushed to the portable microphone set
up among the Stadium throng.
Tense crowds packed the grandstand and overflowed to the bleachers
and grass in the Stadium ring as
student leaders debated the amendment legislated to bring campus
political activity out into the operi.
After almost an hour's debate students voted nearly three to one to
allow political clubs on the campus.
The hottest discussion centred not
around the motion as put forth by
the Council but around the section
of the rule \»,hich prohibits the organization from throwing their weight
into student elections.
Gordon Martin, President of the
Social Problems Club and member
of UBC's Communist Forum urged
the meeting to pass the "politics" motion, but made an amendment deleting the section restricting clubs from
participating in elections outside of
their own groups.
In making the amendment, Martin
set the stage for a battle between
speakers from the floor that showed
no promise of termination until Livingstone took a vote on another motion limiting each speaker to three
This decision cut short the oratory
of Martin who complained that the
question at hand "is of the utmost

AMS Office Staff
Wins Pay Boost
Pay increases of $5 to $15 a month
have been granted five office workers of the Alma Mater Society. The
increases went into effect Wednesday.
The new rates of pay are in line
with the streamlining of the office
staff, carried out as a result of a management survey conducted by George
Masters, office manager of the Vancouver General Hospital.
In a statement to The Daily Ubyssey, Bob Harwood, student treasurer, stated that under the new policy
duties of the girls have been more
clearly defined and their functions
have  been specialized.
"The increased cost will be more
than offset by savings for which the
increased efficiency of the staff will
be  responsible,"  Harwood  said.
The treasurer also stated that the
Students Council, as well as the student body, have already noticed an
increase in the efficiency of the staff
through the speeding up of service.
Thunderbirds Meet CPS Loggers In Debut Tomorrow
Sports Editor,
The Daily Ubyssey
Football fever on the campus
reaches its wildest pitch tomorrow afternoon when the UBC
Thunderbirds play host to the
highly-rated grid machine from
the Tacoma campus of the College of Puget Sound.
Before a crowd expected to
nudge the 7000 mark, and almost   sure   of   shattering   tho
Stadium attendance record, the
'Birds will attempt to break
into the win column for the
first time in the Pacific Northwest Conference./
All students will be admitted to the
game free upon the presentation of
Student Identification Cards. Reserved
seats in the grandstand are available
at the office of the Graduate Manager
of Athletics, and can also be had by
holders of Booster Passes if submitted
at the Gym before 5 p.m. today.
The Thunderbird debut will be replete with all the color of the college
football game. Twelve pretty cheer
leaders and drum majorettes resplendent in their white satin uniforms,
two Varsity bands\ and a half-time
exhibition of tumbling and gymnastic
skill will add sparkle to the afternoon.
Game time is 2 p.m. sharp. Alderman
Jack Cornett will officiate at the
traditional kickoff ceremony before ihe
Broadcasting rights have been given
to radio stations CKMO in Vancouver,
and  KTBI  in Tacoma.  Handling the
reporting chores for the local station
will be two of the university's most
popular athletic figures, Jack Pomfret
and Ivor Wynne. The famous Clay
Huntingdon from Tacoma will broadcast the game for Tacoman fandom.
A student car caravan from Tacoma
is slated to arrive early Saturday
afternoon with 200 supporters for the
Puget Sovind team. A section has
been reserved for the Americans in
the grandstand.
A mass pep meet is being staged
in the Armory at noon today at which
the UBC team will be introduced to
the students. Herb Capozzi, acting-
captain of the squad will introduce
the players while Frank Nightengale's
orchestra plays a few musical selections for the audience.
Added attractions at the mammoth
rally are skits, and a streamlined
Varsity chorus, featuring the drum
majorettes and Mamooks cheer leaders.
Capping Saturday's festivities will
be a dance in Brock Hall from 9 to 12
p.m. sponsored by the reception com-

mittee, Al MacMillan and his orchestra
will supply the music.
Greg Kabat and his 1947 edition of
the Thunderbirds were in high spirits
at press time and are confident of getting revenge tomorrow afternoon. Last
year's tussle with the Loggers resulted in a 34-6 defeat for the Point
Grey gridders, and the Tacoma school
has come up with another very powerful eleven.
Registered holders of Booster
Passes may obtain a reserved seat
under the cover of the grandstand
for the football game, if they present same to the office of the
Graduate Manager of Athletics in
the Gym before 5 p.m. this afternoon.
Despite two pre-season losses—to the
University of Idaho by a 27-7 score,
and their cross-town rivals, the Pacific
Lutheran College by a 13-0 count—the
Loggers are rated as the team to beat
in the PNC, and the experts predict
a tough battle for the Blue and Gold
Tomorrow's contest will be the fifth
time that UBC has met Tacoma College en the gridiron. In 1925 the Loggers blanked the Blue and Gold by
a 54-0 score, and in 1934 and 1935 the
margins of victory were disastrous
again—54-6 and 60-0, Last year saw
the  count  narrowed   to   34-6.
Still smouldering after their initial
setback in Caldwell, Idaho last week
the Varsity football machine intends
to redeem itself tomorrow afternoon
on its own field, or go down fighting
in the attempt. PAGE 2

Letter  To  The  Editor
The original "old chestnut" of campus
affairs is once more in the headlines. We
refer, of course, to the question of the status
of fraternities and sororities in the caf.
The current controversy was sparked
by a statement to the Daily Ubyssey from
Frank Underhill, manager of the caf, to the
effect that he thought it unfair that the greeks
should monopolize a large percentage of the
available tables for purposes other than eating their lunches.
The agitation was taken a step further
at student council meeting last Monday when
Nora Clarke opened a discussion resulting
in a motion "deploring the situation" and
recommending that overtures asking action
be made to the administration, to the caf
management and to the inter-greek councils.
A sub-plot developed in yesterday's
Ubyssey when council attacked the Publication Board, charging distortion. They claimed
the story printed Wednesday did not clearly
state the import of the motion.
This is true.
The story did not pretend to describe the
motion alone but dealt with the council discussion leading up to it. For reasons unknown
to us, council has apparently decided to take
it easy on the greeks and have worded their
motion to blame certain groups {mind you
not necessarily greeks) for abusing caf privileges.
The Daily Ubyssey undertook to attach
the blame where it was due and featured the
facts of the discussion, playing down the
tooth-less motion.
With the extreme overcrowding conditions, the practice of using caf tables for
eating prepared lunches renders it difficult
for those who must, of necessity, buy their
Of far greater consequence however, is
the lingering in social discourse while others
are stumbling through the mobs looking for
someplace to set down their trays.
It cannot be denied that this is the practice of the greek letter societies.
Another point. The greeks have no legal
claim to their tables, nor do they profess to
have. Fact is, though, that in fact if not
principle, other students are excluded.
It is traditional for certain tables to be
designated "greek". The difficulty is that
many students confuse tradition with law
and make no effort to use the tables which
are said to be out of bounds.
Others who do use the greek tables may
be stigmatized with conversations intended
to be overheard and meaningful glances. In
one known case a sign was tacked to a post
announcing that "This is the — table."
This dispensation is especially prevalent
during the rushing period when greeks invite
rushees "down to the table" to meet the
There are two courses of action open.
First, the administration could be asked to
pass and enforce a ruling that no lunches
may be brought into the caf during rush
The alternative is to have all students
understand fully that they are perfectly free
to use any table they choose, and to have the
greeks understand that they cannot, through
any devious means, suggest that their tables
are not open to public use.
Lectures have been in progress a
scant ten days and already on three
occasions I have noticed students
"holding" vacant seats for friends.
The practice seems restricted only
to crowded class-rooms and smacks
of an unhealthy "dog-in-the-manger"
attitude of people who are willing
to make a privileged class of latecomers.
I can imagine the commotion in a
morning if an early driver tried to
hold a parking space for a late arrival.
I suggest that if a student tries to
hold two seats he might also like to
write two examinations.
In the meantime if a "held" seat
is the last one available, I for one
shall sit in it.

NOTES the   rains   have   come

campus settles down to
its usual muddied paths and muddled minds.
The calendar says it's October and the professors say it's time, to start studying and the
yawns of the students say the profs don't
know what they're talking about. And the
fact that so many of the students are in their
fourth and fifth years seems to indicate the
truth of that last sentiment.

Norman Littlewood, also of the
Communist Forum, upheld the original motion, deciding that "we are
not afraid of any cf our ideas".
"We are," retorted an anonymous
heckler at the back of the stands.
The crowd cheered wildly.
Apparently non-plussed, Littlewood
repeated his plea for an affirmative
vote to the motion, pointing out that

Stuart Chambers defended Article
4, section B, which Martin had proposed be deleted from the main motion.
"We are introducing a new freedom," he said, "but there is one
other freedom we must guard for
ourselves at the same time—the freedom of individual activity."
He took as an example the Student Christian Movement, who could,
he claimed, be infiltrated by Communists if Article 4 did not remain
in the motion.
"And the SCM," he expounded,
"sohuld be free to worship God.
They (the SCM members) should bc
free from groups dedicated to the
wdrshlp of Stalin."
Strong agitator  against  the  motion
was  R,   Pederson,  who   believes  the
motion "will encourage party politics
in AMS elections".
First and one of the foremost opponents to tht motion was Bob Ross,
who declared that the Communists
are "not a political patty" but "(a
group of) anarchists not interested
in the Canadian way of life".
Robin Andrews spoke in favor of
the motion, stating that he believed
the students "capable of withstanding
the ideas" of the Communists,
Ray Dewar also expressed his favor of the motion which, he said,
"would bring out into the open the
philosophies and activities of the
various   groups   in   question."

UBC Playwright Perrault
Rivals Orson Welles
Having turned out successful plays, short stories, radio
drama, Ernie Perrault, president of the University Radio
Society might be called "UBC's Orson Welles."
Perrault, fouth  year  Arts  student, 3>
besides  having  had  some ten  radio
plays accepted and produced, chiefly by the CBC and a few American
stations, has published short stories
In addition, he has now entered
the field of stage plays and at present
is engaged in turning out one stage
and three radio plays.
Another new endeavour for Perrault is writing the scenario and
lyrics for a musical comedy based
on the early lumber camps of the
"It typifies the rollicking songs of
the loggers and captures the air of
the skid-road towns," said the author.
Perrault's first script was produced
at the age of 17 but the effort remained dormant until, as he puts it,
"a fond parent got hold of it." This
first effort, a nativity play, was produced over CBC Vancouver and
started the budding playwrite on the
road to success in the field of dramatic writing.
Several of his short stories were
published in various Air Force ma^-
ezines during his time with i\\<>.

slot in the International Playwriting
Contest sponsored by he International
Council of the YMCA, last year at
New York.
The contest was world-wide and
400 contestants entered. In this field
of the highest calibre writing, Perrault tied for third place.
Another success for Perrault is the
selection of his play, "It Shouldn't
Happen to a God," as a UBC Players Club presentation for this term.
It is the first play by a student author
to be accepted for production by the
Club. *
Perrault's "baby" is the URS Thunderbird Theatre, a workshop production which was instituted last year
over CKWX originating in the Brock
Hall studios. Writing and directing
plays for this series gave the veteran
Radsoc writer more valuable experience in his chosen line.

A job on the City Desk very probably has a great number of
advantages, or that is what they tried to tell yours truly as
another year at our worthy institution got under way. But after
I had read a few of friend Chick's columns, featuring that jazzy
lingo of which only he is capable, the lure of the sports desk
became too much. So once again I sit me down at the old
machine to beat out another column and another deadline.
It's not easy to explain why it is so hard to get away from
the colorful life of the sports desk. Perhaps the fact that the
desk has always boasted such a carefree assortment of characters
has something to do with it. Actually though, it seems to me that
the common bond that holds this group together has a lot to do
with it. That bond. Collegiate sport.
Joe College And Sport
It seems that there is something about sport that just goes
hand in hand with the collegiate life. The very fact that talking
about the feats of the Blue and Gold in the world of sports
can seemingly create a pride in the University that very few
other college activities can bring about, says much for Sport
And then again, maybe it's just because sports bring the
students together in a common group to yell and scream for
their common hero. After all, what is more typically collegiate
than a picture of a stadium full of students waving banners in
the noisy air as their boys go through the motions on the grid
below? But that is college sport—something that no university
can be without if it is to have any spirit at all.
The Sharpening of The Claws
Our boys are playing their first home grid battle of the
season tomorrow afternoon, and although none of us are
expecting our 'Birdmen to go out there and run rough shod
over the Loggers, there'll be a goodly crowd trotting out to
the stadium. There's just something about seeing the new
version of the Thunderbirds in action.
And besides, it will give Chick another chance to write a
story about a "pigskin soaring through the scream-filled stratosphere into the waiting claws of . . . "one of our 'Birdmen.
Just Once - - - Local Color
Perhaps the colour that goes with a college football game
is one of the reasons that so many grads continue their interest
in the Blue and Gold. All of which brings us to the fact that
Homecoming isn't so far away; and chilluns, what better chance
have we got of showing off our college spirit than at that time?
Personally, I'd rather like to see a little color at that game,
not only from the grandstand, but from the field. It's surprising
how much a little pre-game color can add to a game. Just for
instance, why not make a little more use of our Thunderbird
A few little Indian lads (possibly from the Mamooks) couid
wander out with a tom-tom ... a few words to the gods ... a
totem pole might even be used for the occasion All of this would
be of the serious variety, a ceremony for our warriors.
A little humour from the Jokers at the half way mark,
music and drum majorettes and we're well on our way towards
a right fine homecoming for our grads. A little out of the
ordinary maybe, but it could most certainly be an impressive
show. If you don't think so, just have a chat with Van Perry,
our frontman for the University.
So [There It Is
Well, there it is for what it's worth. It just seems to me
that we are capable of putting on a more colorful show than we
have in the past. Homecoming is one day in the year when
something big should be done, something to impress the people
that throng to the campus to get back some of that old college
Well, Chicklet my boy, time and yours truly have seemingly
run out again. Anyhow, the small message that I had on my
mind is now on paper. It's been fun to have a chance to talk to
the kids again. Here's hoping that their cheers tomorrow will
help our 'Birdmen come up with their initial grid victory. Game
time is 2:30. See you there.

Soccer Squads
Play Tomorrow
After getting a couple of first game
defeats out of their system, Varsity
and UBC soccer are out for blood this
In order to field the best team possible last week, Manager Bob Wilson
picked the players from his knowledge
of their ability in previous campus
games rather than their alertness at
the practice. However, any potential
stars that show up in future practices
will have a good chance of making
one of the teams.
Varsity, when they take on New
Westminster at Powell Street grounds,
will be strengthened by the return of
captain Gus MacSween, ex-coast
league player. UBC will scrap with
Norquay at Norquay grounds. Game
time is 3 p.m.

Thunderbirds Face Wood,
Loggers In Saturday Grid
STOP WOOD is the one all-consuming thought in the minds
of Greg Rabat's Thunderbird football squad today. Tomorrow
afternoon at the stadium the 'Birds tangle with College of
Puget Sound Loggers in the first home game of the still-young
season, and if Rabat's gang can throttle Wood then a UBC
victory is not too improbable.
For   in   last  year's  tilt—which  the|^
Loggers   took,   34-6—it   was   Warren
Wood,   mountainous   CPS   fullback,
who proved io be the 'Birds number
one nemesis.
Coach Kabat has inaugurated six
different defensive systems designed
for the sole purpose of stopping the
big fullback, so if all goes as expected
the big fellow should find himself in
plenty of trouble .
Condition has been the main theme
of Thunderbird practises during the
past week, and in that department at
least the UBC gang should be able
to hold their own.
Meanwhile, from the Tacoma settlement comes nothing but tear-filled
tales of woe. Major setback suffered
by the Loggers is the loss of first
string centre, Jack McMillan, who
sustained a broken ankle while playing against Pacific Lutheran last Saturday,
Both other CPS centres, Ed Not-
ley and La Verne Martineau, are
benched with leg injuries and as a
result coach Patrick has had to move
Milt Hegstrom, tackle, into the vacant
According to reports received by
the Daily Ubyssey this morning Logger mentor Patrick is apparently disgusted with his Club following its
poor showing against Pacific Lutheran last week—CPS lost 13-0—and is
endeavoring to field a completely new
team tomorrow — with the exception
of Wood, that is.
Majorettes At
Game Tomorrow
Half-time in tomorrow's Grid event
will feature dlong with other groups
a septette of gorgeous sophomore
Hailing from all parts of B.C., these
girls prove that feminine pulchritude
is tops all over the province.
Gloria Newell, leader of the group,
is a vivacious 5' 2" brunette from
Kay Ladd, a brunette with blue eyes,
is 5' 6" of Vancouver loveliness.
June Little is a tall, brunette ex-
Lois Whimster, the strawberry
blonde of the group, gained much of
her experiences as drum majorette
at   Nelson   High.
Phylis Johnson, 5' 7" Chilliwack representative, plays the piano for her
cwn amusement (?)
Sara Lee Tidball, honey blonde ex
ski team member.
Billie Wadds, cute little 5' 4" brunette. Billie played a 6' 4" bass fiddle
in  the Trail  High  School  Orchestra.
Noon will see Thunderbird
fans gather in the Armories
for a pep meet featuring Frank
Nightingale's orchestra and the
whole Grid squad.
Mamooks will be well represented at the meet with both
the Majorettes twirling batons,
and cheerleaders working the
loyal Blue and Gold supporters to a fever pitch.
Big feature of the event will
be an introduction to all the
players, MC'd by Dave Comparelli.
Professor Maury Van Vliet, former
coach of the UBC Canadian football
squad, is now head coach of the
University of Alberta team. Van
Vliet, who has been putting the
Golden Bears through three weeks
of intensive training, is at present
in Saskatchewan scouting the University of Toronto Huskies.
