Beauty and the Beast
EVERY NOOK AND CRANNY of the campus was being
searched this week for "Mr. Pigskin," UBC Legion's mystery
man. Yesterday, Legion officials gave out clues in the form of
a jingle as to his identity. Meanwhile these two co-eds were nosing about the animal pens in search of the gentleman. Their
friend above appears nonplussed by their attempts to identify
him. .    4«r '■»*»'*
Chief Trades
Canoe For Plane;
Flouts Tradition
Chief Billy Scow, president of the
Native Brotherhood of British Columbia, arrived by air in Vancouver

Chief Scow traded his canoe to
Queen Charlotte Airlines for an aircraft and expressed satisfaction with
the trade although he said he would
rather have come the traditional way
if time had permitted.
He will make formal presentation
of UBC's new Thunderbird Totem
pole, gift of last year's graduating
class, at the football game with College of Idaho tomorrow.
Ex-President Assumes
Blame In Fund Probe
Character And Integrity Defamed
By Fund Probe Says Livingstone
'Tween Classes
Toronto, Oct. 29 — Grant Livingstone, president last year
of UBC Student Council, assumes "full responsibility" for whatever "mismanagement'' of student funds may be revealed at the
University of British Columbia.
® _ . _
Livingstone is in Toronto today as
UBC delegate to a Canadian conference of the International Student Service. He and Cliff Greer will present
UBC's case for German scholarships
recently approved at UBC.
Reports of UBC financial difficulties
has thrown a suspicion on his character and integrity, he said.
He plans to return to Vancouver
as soon as possible to appear before
UBC's investigation committee.
Dave Brousson, UBC Student Council president issued the following
statement Thursday after a long distance telephone conference with Livingstone in Montreal:
"I have received word from Grant
Livingstone in Montreal, where he
is reporting regarding his trip to
Europe on international student affairs, that misleading press coverage
of recent UBC financial difficulties
has thrown a cloud of suspicion on
Grant's character and integrity.
"His statement to me says that he
assumes full responsibility for whatever mismanagement the investigation may reveal, and that he will
return as soon as possible to report
to the investigation committee.
"Both Paul Plant and myself can
unhesitatingly say that there is no
suspicion in anyone's mind here that
there was any dishonesty in the administration of last year's student
affairs, but that on the contrary tlie
job cost Grant many sacrifices in
money, time, academic record, and
personal health.
"We deeply regret the implications
cast, and sincerely hope that this
statement, and the later reports to
be issued, may partially undo the
harm done.
"Wo are officially accrediting
Grant as delegate to the ISS Conference in Toronto, where we know
he and Cliff Greer will again lead
the way for Canadian University

Money Woes
Hit Editor
Of Yearbook
No Extra Copies
For Latecomers
Like most other people oh
the campus today, Totem editor Dick Blockberger is worried
about money.
No matter which way they figure
it, the editors of the Totem find themselves short of the sum needed to produce even a highly condensed yearbook.
Basic reason for this shortage, ox-
plained Blockberger, is the fact that
only 1000 students have subscribed
to this year's edition, and another
2000 subscriptions are needed before
the yearbook can break even. Average sales in the past have always
been well over the 4000 mark, but
this year subscriptions have dropped
In a sharp break with previous
policy, the Totem editor has announced that no extra copies of the annual
will be printed this year, and thus it
will be impossible for anyone who
hasn't placed an advance order to
purchase a book.
Princess candidates who wish to
attend thc Homecoming dance in
the Armory Saturday night should
pick up their tickets for the affair
at the AMS office, Homecoming officials stated.
High times are in store for graduates now flocking back to
the campus for Homecoming weekend.
Gala weekend will get underway Saturday afternoon when
College of Idaho arrives for the football event of the year.

No Blame For
UN In Great
Power Split
UN must not be blamed for
failure to stop the East-West
split because it was never designed to stop any big power
split, Don Lanskail told Parli-
imentary Forum, Thursday.
"At the time of UN's inception at
San   Francisco   there   was   complete
Mac Atkinson, prime minister, con-
so recently victorious in the German
and Japanese wars," he said.
"Accordingly UN was built on the
expectation that harmony would continue. The fact that it hasn't continued
is bound to impair UN's effectiveness
to a tremendous extent but that does
not mean that UN has failed in its
original goal insofar as its charter
will permit," Lanskail, leader of the
opposition continued.
harmony between the great powers
tended that since the prime function
of any international order was to
promote harmony and good will among
nations and to assist Hhe world to an
orderly progress towards world gov-
eminent UN must be held responsible
for all the conflicts now taking place.
"At tlie close of the late war we all
had every hope for world peace for
all time but now we go in fear and
trembling of an atomic war," he said.
"Surely this is sufficient proof that
UN has failed."
Lanskail replied that "there are
many factors and many rights Involved and UN cannot decide them
overnight. In the meantime UN is
attempting to maintain the peace."
The debate will be broadcast from
a recording over CJOR Sunday at
5:30 p.m.

Jet-Jockey School Opens

In Blood Cure
Don't call anybody a rat again.
Rats are heroes. Rats are being
scientifically bred for the benefit
of mankind.
Recently a blessed event took
place in the basement of the Applied Science building as a litter
of new baby rats came into Ihe
world to aid man in his fight
against disease.
Unlike the rats which might bo
found   in   the   basements   of   olhei
university buildings, these are
very special Vypes. They are being
.scientifically bred.
Ray Nixon and Jim Salter are
using the rodents in special tests
to produce a condition of experimental hypertension, or in layman's  terms,   high  blood  pressure.
The two graduate sludents have
been doing theses work in the
field for i'he past two years. They
plan  to continue their experiments
untg they produce an artificial
condition of high blood pressure
and then will attempt to discover
a successful cure.
High blood pressure is one of
the greatest mankillers on this
continent, the students say, Each
year more than 600,000 people die
as a direct or indirect result, of it.
Willi the help of a few newborn white rats, the students hope
to effect a cure.

Universities: Hope ForOurTimes
In all parts of the world, tlie past forty
years has been age of revolutionary change,
rapid, profound and eumulativo. No aspect ot
human life ha.s .seemed unaltered.
In times like these the signs and .symbols
which have guided the lives of men for centuries suddenly become unreliable and obscure.
This is the opportunity of the false prophet.
Systems of, ordered thought usually have
their own means of judging nonsense. But in
the absence of the accepted, and objective,
standards no fallacy .so ludicrous, no falsehood so fantastic but has its devotees; and
cranks and charlatons pullulate like flies on
a midden.
We are trougled, it has been said, not so
much by the loss of the old faith, but by a
multiplicity of new beliefs.

72 Homecoming
§ E i
Graduates visiting the campus for Homecoming today
and Saturday will find memories jogged by those nostalgic.,
stories reprinted from the pages o the Ubyssey.
Idiosyncracics of college life ,the frivolity and. the
youthful exuberance of undergraduates are traced through
the pages of UBC's irreverent student paper,
Yesterday's stories will be of interest to the under-
gradsuates as well.
Where will men turn for the truth?
They might, as Ira Dilworth told his Congregation audience Wednesday, learn to ap-
pioach the problems of the world with compassion, with a .sense of moral humdily.
Thoy might also, as Mr. Dilworth wisely
pointed   out,   ask   their  universities  to  lead
them toward a better sense of faith, a deeper
feeling for values, and a centrality of purpose   all 1)ilgr

'Bird Hoopsters Make Home Debut
In Tilt filth Strong Grad Squad
For a young university, UBC is gradual^ beginning to develop tradition and ideas which hold a nostalgic value for students and alums alike. „■  *«•.
Such is the annual Homecoming Basketball game to be
played this Saturday night.
At present the 'Birds are busy
ironing out some of the faults that
were made apparent by the series
between UBC and Port Alberni
Athletics last weekend. UBC lost the
second of the two games by a four
point margin.
To the list of twelve players named
to the 'Birds last week, which included six returning cagers, three ex-
Chiefs, and three starry freshmen,
another name has been added. It is
that of young Pete Walker who
played with the Chief team in the
Senior A loop last year.
Providing no injuries mar the
smoothness of pre-season workouts
for the 'Birds, the starting line-up
. this Saturday will probably be Reid
Mitchell and Bob Boyes at guard,
Nev Munroe and Jimmy McLean
(the boy with that' smile while he
plays) at forward, and long John
Forsyth in the centre slot.
For this, the third annual Grad-
Bird game, the grads will be bringing an impressive team to the campus.
The students have made a clean
sweep of all previous games and the
Grads will be trying to walk off with
their first win  this Saturday.
Last year, the 'Birds managed to pull
one out of the fire by forcing the
game into overtime and then keeping the fans on t'he edge of their
seats' by taking a small one point
lead and winning the tilt.
The test of experience (a nice way
of saying age) versus youth will
feature many prominent graduates
of UBC.
The squad, under the watchful eye
of Ralph (Hunk) Henderson, will
include such former stars as Ron
Weber, Harry Kermode, Bobby Haas,
Bobby   Scarr.   and   Sandy   Robertson.
UBC's Graduate Manager of Athletics, Ole Bakken, v/ill be in strip
for the affair as will be Harry Franklin, Brucl Matheson, and Rami Rlatli-
Students will also have an opportunity to see the Director of Physical
Education at UBC. in action when
Bob Osborne takes the floor for the
glory of thc grad  team.
Also  rctmuin?'   for   th.1  h-e.^  i'nea-
will    be   Jimmy    Bard.gey,    v.-in    h
been   out   of   active   participation   for
some time with a head  injury.
Tickets for both the afternoon grid
fixture and the evening Grad-Bird
hoop tiff are now on sale in the of-
fice of the Graduate Manager of
Athletics, Ole Bakken.

Gridsfers Out For Repeat Win
!n Traditional Grid Battle
If history lives up to its repetitive reputation a lot of UBC
grads will he very happy tomorrow.
For it was on Homecoming day just one year ago that the
football Thunderbirds chalked up their first and, so far, only
American grid win.
The 'Birds are just about due for a3>
win. So far this season they have
steadily improved. Starting Vheir
home stand with a terrific whitewashing at the hands of WWC they
went en to score their first major
against Willamette and last weekend
they had a tie with Whitman.
But whatever the outcome this
Saturday, UBC will know that it
has been in a football game. The
Coyotes of College of Idaho have already picked up two victories in
Conference play this season.
Pacific College, winners over UBC
by a lop-sided score, fell victims to
the onr-ushing Coyotes, as did Linfield.   Only   the   Conference   champ
ion  Willamette  squad   has  managed
to stop them.
The potato-staters' attack features
a pair of top-notch ground gainers
in the persons of Tom Winbigler and
Glen Ward. These two backs lead the
Conference in ground-gained-per-
play average.
The 'Birds will go into action minus
the services of starry back Bob Brewer, who picked up a bad knee in the
Whitman contest.
Another stalwart who will watch
the Homecoming proceedings from
the bench is Pete Trim. Trim took an
illegal clip in the Whitman game and
had to be helped from the field.
UBC Braves, Chiefs Split
In City Senior A Debut
The brand new UJBC Braves last night broke into the Senior
A basketball lague by defeating Chilliwack 46-27, while their
senior brothers, the Chiefs, fell before the powerful Dominion
champion Clover Leafs, 76-30.
Braves went all out from the opening whistle to chalk up victory, out-
scoring the Chilliwack club in three
out of four periods. Except for one
short but strong rally in the third
quarter, the Valley five were never
a threat to the Varsity club.
At half time, the Braves already
had the game on ice, with a score of
25-10, but just to make it more convincing, they potted in 16 points to
Chilliwack's 6 in the final canto.
High scorers for the UBC team were
Denny Wotherspoon with high 9
points followed closely by Bill Fraser
and Don Swen.son with 8 and 6 tallies
Thc luckless Chief's fared exactly
the opposite to tlie Braves, being out-
giasved and out-played tho entire
game. Tho UBC team, still unused lo
each others style, have as yet not
devolved into an efficient machine,
a<> tho Dominion Champs were able
ic walk all over the locals, .sinking
ever twit o the amount of points in

they will continue i'o hold it.
