 Frosh Mend
At Smoker
The prosecutor levelled a stern
finger at the quivering accused.
"You," he thundered, "were found
talking to a poor innocent Freshette during your initiation period,
This heinous crime must be punished to the fullest extent of the
law. Your honour, and gentlemen
of the jury, I demand a verdict of
guilty," As the required verdict
was delivered a wild yell of blood
lust rose from the audience and
another victim was led to his unspeakable doom.
The scene of this ghastly tribunal was laid in the Armories last
Friday night at the traditional
Frosh Smoker.
Punishments fitting the crimes
were meted out with assembly line
precision. "Hanging Judge" Kirkpatrick was on the bench to see
that the trial was carried out according to the laws of justice.
An egg shampoo was massaged
into the hair of the first of the
many convicted. A second was
forced to box a stalwart upper-
classman. The unfortunate Frosh
was handicapped slightly by the
addition of a blindfold.
The blue-tinged atmosphere caused by about 500 Frosh energetically
puffing away on freely supplied
pipes, cigarettes and cigars only
Served to heighten the affect of
the jokes and raucous dities which
were blared from the mikes.
Feature entertainer of the evening was Vancouver's celebrated
comedian, Fran Dowie, who with
his versatile father, kept the audience in gales of laughter with his
interrelation of a co-ed getting
dressed in the very early morning. His father's piano and yoice
provided a variety of musical entertainment.
The victuals for the evening consisted of gallons of pickles, rounds
of cheese and crackers and over a
thousand cokes.
The only unhappy event of the
evening occurred when a crowd
of Sciencemen ripped the ignition
wjr^f, from ahnost all the cars
parked outside the Armories, stalling the cars and forcing the unfortunate drivers to attempt to restore the firing order by the aid
of flickering matches.

M.D., D.Sc., F.R.S.C., well known
Canadian authority on medicine and
medical education has been invited to speak to the graduate class
at the Autumn Congregation Wednesday, October 30.

Director of the Montreal Neurosurgical Institute. A graduate of
Princeton University and Johns
Hopkins, he was twice winner of
the Rhodes Scholarship, once in
1914, and again in 1919. For his
work at Oxford he received the
Beit Memorial Fellowship at London in 1920-21.
His post-graduate work took him
to Harvard University, Edinburgh,
London, Spain, France, and Germany. In the Great War he served
with an American base hospital in
Paris as a surgeon.
During the course of his educational and medical career Dr. Penfleld has acquired numerous degrees: M.D., B.Litt., B.A., B.Sc.,
M.A., D.Sc., FR.S.C. (C), F.R.S.C.;
and his rise in the field of surgery has taken him from the position of Associate Director of Surgery at Columbia University in
1926 to his present position, which
he has held since 1934.

GEOGRAPHY 407 (Human and
Cultural Geography) has been
changed from a one unit to a

INCLUDED in UBC's policy of expansion is the new
department of Slavonic Studies, headed by the noted European linguist and philogist, Dr. James O. St. Clair-Sobell.
For the past seven years Dr. St.
Clair-Sobell served with the R.A.F.
as Wing Commander and made
over 200 broadcasts to Europe in

adept at Russian tongues which
were not broadcast over the B.B.C.
Since V-E Day he has served as
senior air officer in the Allied
Commission in Austria and as head
of the Liter service censorschip department of the commission's British division.
He was educated at Scotch College, Melborne, where he obtained
his B.A. and M.A. degrees. His
work towards a Ph.D. at the University of Genoa and Cambridge
was interrupted by World War II
but he completed his studies with
honors during 1945-46 at the University of Graz in Austria, being
the first British officer to win an
award since the liberation of Austria.
The new Slavonic department is
the only one in Canada. There will
be two courses offered in the session 1946-47. Course number 90,
Beginner's Russian, is open only to
those who have completed a first
unit in French, German, Greek,
Latin or Spanish with at least second class standing and, except for

of English, History or Political
This department will introduce
more courses next year.
REGINA OCT. 1 (CP)-You can
get a high-school degree in Saskatchewan without setting foot in
a classroom.
In 1935, the provincial government inaugurated what was
known as "The Outpost Correspondence School." There was an
initial staff of one and enrollment

students and a staff of 30.
The students are mainly residents of Saskatchewan's rural
areas, but citizens of Africa, South
America, the United States and
other parts of Canada are also
registered. One student recently

keep other squatters from invading university huts.
Following this meeting, Dr.
Shrum, John MacKenzie, business
manager of the University Legion,
and a representative of the squatters surveyed the alternate accommodation. The Squatters agreed
to move into the new quarters.
At another meeting, Sunday, the
Lower Mainland Zone Council, representing all Canadian Legion
Branches passed a resolution
stating that all Legion branches be
advised of the University's position
and explaining that any further
trek of families to Little Mountain
would jeopardize the housing project for 200 student veteran families.
Student veteran families will
commence moving into Little
Mountain huts today (Monday) to
wait with the squatters for UBC
to convert the huts into suites.

FRESHMAN - Redshirt skirmishes ere a harmless way
to initiate Frosh.
This Ls the opinion of Rev. John F. H. Stewart, first student's chaplain to take over duties at University of B.C.
Reverend Stewart, far from be
ing the grown-up OGIT-adherent
his title may imply, is tall and
bushy-browed, and is called "John"
by the students who frequent the
crowded SCM offices on the 3rd
floor of the Auditorium, his temporary quarters.
Every sentence is punctuated
with a "God bless me!" the chaplain's favorite exclamation, or a
wide grin.
When asked about his status on
the campus, Reverend Stewart explained that he was here "under
the auspices of the Student Christian Movement in consultation with
the Varsity Christian Fellowship
and University branch of the
Which translated means he will
act as a chaplain to the students on
the campus, particularly returned
vets, in whose lives the above organizations felt he could play an
important part.
He will undertake approximately the same functions as those of
a padre in the army.
He explained that he would be
leading club discussions on "vital
issues of the day, and difficulties
in a search for a method of living."
Except for his round "dog-collar"
coupled with the overseas badge,
Reverend Stewart might well be
mistaken for a junior member of
the faculty.
The badge is the result of 3 years'
service attached to various units
including time in Italy and Oldenburg with the RCE Army of Occupation where he looked after the
morale and spiritual welfare of
600 men.
He is a graduate in Theology of
Wycliffe College.
He also completed a premedical
course at the University of Toronto and did post-graduate work in
Like many students and members
of the faculty), the chaplain is
staying at Acadia Camp.
At the moment he is caught in
the toils of the housing shortage
(God bless me) and, after a week
on the campus, doesn't know where
his permanent office is.
UBC is his idea of a progressive
university, however.
"They're not so tied by tradition
as eastern colleges," he explained
—voicing the opinion of many eastern visitors.
"And there isn't any inter-faculty friction or snobbery," he beam.
When reminded of the current
lily-pond dunklngs, Rev. Stewart
grinned and dubbed It "comparatively harmless."
He recalls that in his undergraduate days at University of Toronto, freshmen were forced into
"bed races" pushing a comrade
astride a cot down traffic-infested
St. George's Street at midnight,
running the risk of either being
run down or run in.
The chaplain insists that he is
Athletic—he rides a bicycle.
One summer he pedalled from

A quick glance at the Ubyssey masthead
will show that the paper has added a very
important sentence to it this year, namely:
"Editorial opinions expressed are those of
the Editorial Board of the Ubyssey and not
necessarily those of the Alma Mater Society
or of the University."
Most readers always correctly understood
that to be the case.
This year, the Ubyssey is serving a record
number of students and it is also contacting
a larger number of readers outside the University. Because that is so, the Editorial
Board thought it best to add that sentence
to the masthead so that no one would be in
Responsibility for editorial opinions expressed in university newspapers is always
a matter for argument. Practically all college journals now follow a policy similar
to that expressed in the Ubyssey masthead-
There is usually much argument, but little
real concern, about editorial comment on
campus affairs. Most student readers seem
to feel that the editors, by their work, should
have knowledge on those affairs which qualifies them to comment.
Furthermore, in case of disagreement any
student may submit articles or letters attacking editorial opinions.
More concern is felt about the matter of
comment on non-university affairs, such as
national or international politics. Many student groups on the campus would have the
Ubyssey become the mouthpiece of their
own social or political philosiphies, and the
editors must carry on a constant battle to
keep the student newspaper unbiased in
such matters.
The members of the Editorial Board, who
themselves do not share any common philosophy on non-university affairs, realize full
well that they could not hope to express
editorially the social or political policies of
all the student body. For that reason, they
shall strive to forego such comment, except
in cases where the great majority of the
student body indicate the desirable stand
for the student newspaper to take.
Of course, the writers of regular articles
of opinion who are graced with the title
of "columnists" are free to deal with any
topic within the limits of libel and decency.
Those columnists must follow three guides:
the material must be well written; the
material should interest student readers; and
the writers must bear responsibility for their
opinions by having their names printed with
the articles.
Writers of letters to the editor also have
complete freedom of expression. Because of
that, the Ubyssey feels that the authors
should bear the same responsibility for their
opinions as do the columnists.
To that end, the editorial board has ruled
that all published letters to the editor must
bear the real name of the writer. It is expected that this will prevent vicious sentiments from being displayed behind the cowardly cover of pseudonyms.

THE PLANS of CBCa Toronto
repertory group—Stage 47 this
year—farce me into a fleeting
moment of benignity. Carrying on
from its season of original Canadian plays, last winter, the group

First in the series, which began
last Sunday, was Christopher
Morley's successful Trojan Horse'
to be followed next Sunday by
Jane Austen's delightful 'Pride
and Prejudice.*
My list of choice Items to com*,
ontains several plays well worth
; lention. Top of the list might
nell be Sophocles 'Oedipus Rex,'
marking as it does the summit
cf ancient Greek theatrical achievement. This magnificent and
terrible play, outstanding as an
example of the retrospective style
of drama, rises and falls again in
an unbroken curve of tension, as
Oedipus probes out the truth
which destroys him.
Another on my list, Isben's
'Enemy of the People,' was one of
the three Isben playr, called forth
by thc widespread attack on
'Ghosts.' It depicts the fate of a

The Editor
Dear Sir:
As women's page editor of the
Oregon Daily Emerald, I have been
scanning college and University
newspapers over the country looking for suggestions and ideas. I
remembered having seen your fea.
ture "Beauty on the Spot," and recalled that it was popular last year
when it was running. We would
like to try a similar column here
at Oregon, and wondered if you
would grant permission. We could
change the name of the article but
if you permit, would rather leave
the Beauty on the Spot unchanged,

of petty invested interest and bureaucracy in the pursuit of his
duty, and it culminates with a
clear and vigorous statement of
Isben's revolutionatry social and
moral views.
And, of course, no representative dramatic series would be
complete without something from
Shakespeare. The play selected in
this case is the not so well known
history,  'Richard II.'
This play with its fluid poetry
and wise humanity, constitutes,
with the stark and furious 'Richard III,' a pair comparable with
the constrasting pairs of Beethoven symphonies, Again the two
plays are comparable historically,
in that 'Richard II' is the prologue
to the Civil War plays of which
'Richard III' is the close and epilogue. But more than this it is
a play of great political significance, with its pitting of the realistic ambition of Bolingbroke
against the flawed genius of
In addition to these three, the
series will include plays and
dramatizations of novels by Fielding and Dickens; Chekov, Gogol
nnd Dostoievsky; Moliers and de
Maupassant. Among the Canadian
works to be presented are plays
by Kemp, Tweed, Sinclair, Peterson and Noxon, and an adaptation
of Hugh McLennan's important
"Two Solitudes.' The production of
the series is under the supervision
of Andrew Allan, and the musical
backgrounds are original scores
composed and conducted by Lucio
The drama work of this Toronto
group, which includes in its
numbers the UBC ex-student and
occasional lecturer Lister Sinclair,
has been of such high quality
during their past three years of
broadcast as to call forth whav
might almost be described as unbridled praise from the Olympian
heights of the New York Times
radio editor.
The unique position of the CBC
in American radio—as a state
owned network—gives it a potential advantage over the commercial
broadcasters. It is very gratifying
to see the CBC realizing this advantage in the presentation of
fine drama in a field almost completely given over to adaptations
of the worst films.
The CBC has the opportunity—
almost the duty—of improving
popular taste by the presentation
of programs, not completely beyond the reach of the man in the
street, but of a mature and significant character, and of this fact
it would appear that the CBC is
not entirely unaware.

SOMETHING that constantly amazes me is the public's
sense of humor. Now, don't be annoyed; by the public I
mean that vast number of human beings in the lower intelligence brackets; therefore, we nfay proceed to examine this
topic further and quite impersonally.
The public prides itself on possessing a sense of humor; admittedly, it has one. (In fact, this
might be regarded as its one collective sense). To the sensitive
intelligence, sublety of humor Ls
thc epitome of wit; to the primitive public, however, humor is a
thing harsh and obvious. Practically any movie is an illustration
of that thing, In that if the public
knows beforehand that the presentation is funny, they will laugh,
or perhaps even "laff" if it hits
their eye hard enough.
Many little laughs are much
more to be desired, apparently,
than one big laugh, as anyone
who has gritted his teeth at the
incessant guffaws of a theatre or
radio audience will have observed.
But what makes the publ:
laugh? Anything it seems that has
made it laugh before; that Ls,
variations on a certain few, ever-
recurring themes, well-seasoned
and well-tested, There is nothing
humorous in the unfamiliar, since
no one likes to be taken unawares,
A few stock subjects are automatically funny: for example,
mothers-in-law, Irishmen, inebriates nnd hen-pecked husbands.
Why does the public laugh av
these? It probably laughs at the
mother-in-law and the hen-pecked husband because it delights ln
—Photo By Didk Oulton
their mutual suffering; at thc
Irishman because it does not
understand him, and at the inebriates because it relishes his embarrassment. Fine motives behind
the public laughter!
So we may dismiss all thought
of the untutored public with one
last democratic prayer that the
university may enlarge its registration so as to enable the public
to boast a sense of humor as
sophisticated as ours.
Don't forget the pep meet at
THIS WEEK, the new winter drama series of the CBC,
Vancouver Theatre is being opened with the presentation of
the play "Court Martial", a script founded on the experiences
of the Canadian Army in northwest Europe. All programmes
are being planned and supervised by Mavor Moore, CBC producer, who has come to British Columbia to recommence his
radio career after service with the Canadian Army.
Dr. Earle Birney, celebrated Can
adian poet, collaborated with Mr.
Moore on the script of "Court
Martial" during the time the two
men were together on the staff of
CBC's International Shirt Wave
Service. Although noted for his
ublished books of poetry, Mr. Birney has written this time, in prose.
For its plot the play draws on
his experience as chief personnel
officer with the Canadian Army In
Holland where he held the rank of
Major. The story, the court martial of a young private charged
with attempted suicide, aims to
maintain as closely as possible the
tension of the original scene on
which the play is based.
The close relationship between
Earle Birney and Mavor Moore has
grown over a period of years. The
first reading of Mr. Birney's poems
over CBC from Toronto was under
the sponsorship of Producer Moore.
Their leaves in wartime London
were often spent together and
upon their return to Montreal they
became associated again in CBC's
Short Wave Service. In this work
Mr. Birney was chief supervisor
for the European Section. The two
men will continue to work in collaboration on the new series.
Variety, humor, fantasy satire,
and psychological drama are to be
keynotes of Vancouver Theatre.
The works of many Canadian authors will be presented during the
winter season; one dramatized jottings from the note-book of Chekhov and other great writers; the
other, a number of scripts by Lister Sinclair.
The music for the entire series
is being arranged and directed by
John Avison.
" Legionettes"
POLICY OF Canadian Legion
meeting-:, which are held once a
month nasi been changed, announces Grant Livingstone, President of Branch 72.
The new policy will call for a
'dual' system of meetings, one to
be held during noon hour and the
other in the evening.
This has been necessitated by
the unique position of Branch 72,
whose membership, in contrast to
other Legion branches lives within a large radius of the meeting
place and Ls tied up with studios
at night.
At recent meetings it was found
that the bulk of the evening attendance came from Fort and
Acadia camps, thus indicating that
members living off the campus
find it difficult to attend these
meetings and exercise their privileges and responsibilities to the
It was therefore felt that a noon
meeting ence a month would allow these off-campus residents to
attend and maintain better contact with Legion activities.
There will be certain overlapping of agenda to make it possible for all members to keep up
to date by attending only one
meeting per month. Resolutions
and topics requiring more detailed treatment will be relegated to
evening meetings.
Adding to tho interest, short
informative talks by some prominent local or visiting personality,
on topics of importance to Legion
members, will be given at each
evening meeting.
Speaker for the first evening
meeting to be held October 7 will

For Parliamentary Forum
THE PARLIAMENTARY FORUM, a major club under
the LSE coastitution, is the chief debating organization on
the campus. It's objective is to give practice in public speaking by sponsoring a series of activities:

after an election is held, the full
Mock Parliament session is staged
in Brock HaU.
In addition to the regular McGoun Cup contest between the
four western Canadian universities, the Forum this year hopes to
arrange debates with American Pacific Coast colleges.
A new feature this session will
be the offering of coaching assistance to inexperienced but interested debaters. Special meetings
will be held for unpracticed speakers only, at which experienced Forum debaters will instruct. By this
method the Forum hopes to break
in new material.
Heading the executive this year
is David Dilliams; the two vice-
presidents are Joan Fraser and
Tony Scott, the treasurer is Cliff
Greer while Bob Prittie is handling the program arrangements.
Other members are Gloria Kendall, publicity manager and Rosemary Hodgins, secretary.

Newman Club
Organizes R. C.'s
established in 1892 at the University of Pennsylvania, called Newman
Club after Cardinal Newman
whose exeniplary life was chosen
as the ideal of Catholic students
at Penn. The ideal of the club
was to foster Catholic fellowship,
to encourage inter-association of
Catholic students, who share a
common belief in God, and to
study Catholic culture, and the
Catholic way of life.
The idea spread to every American Campus arid in 1US the various clubs united to form the American Federation of Newman
Clubs. In 1926, a branch of the
Newman Club was formed at UBC
which was Incorporated' in the
American Federation. In 1940 the
UBC branch became affiliated with
the Canadian Federation of Newman Clubs.
Our program this year offers, to
Catholic students, opportunities to
meet others of their creed at social
gatherings and discussion groups
thus deepening their interest and
understanding of their own faith,
and its application to pertinent
problems in world affairs.

Soccer Teams
Split Openers
THE OPENING of the 1946-47
soccer season saw the Varsity and
UBC squads break even in Saturday's games. On the campus the
powerful Varsity squad defeated
Coquitlam 6-2. The team was
paced by the return of several
of last year's veterans and many
new additions from the UBC
eleven and campus newcomer*.
UBC lost to Norquay 4-2.
Gordy Shepherd and Bill Thomas from last year's UBC club leu
the onslaught with two goals
apiece. Hank Sager, a newcomer,
and Stu Todd from last year's
team completed the scoring. The
team, playing heads-up ball offensively and defensively, gave
Moreton in the Varsity net an
easy time of it. Especially brilliant on defense were the Blue
and Gold backs Jack Cowan, Ken
Meyers, and Stan Nicol.
At Norquay Park the UBC aggregation was unluky in losing a
close  decision to Norquay  by  a
score of 4-2. Playing together for
the first time the team held Norquay on even  terms during the
first half, both crews running in
two goals.    UBC    counters   were
scored   by   Bill   McKay  and  Lex
Henderson,   both  markers  coming
from passing attacks by the UBC
forwards. In the second half Nor-
quay's  experience  and  conditioning   proved    invaluable   enabling
Bill  Hartwig,  who  notched  all  4
Norquay goals to push In the winning counters. With more practice
and  league competition the team
should  improve  over    its    initial
performance.   Saturday's   line-ups

Frosh, Sophs Ready For Hoopla
LAURIE DYER, Sports Editor
HAUNTED by the sombre spectre, Time, the fifty-odd
charges, currently pounding the gridiron under the barbed
tongue-lashing of Coach Greg Kabat, can be seen every
evening desperately rounding out their training schedule.
Slated to take the field against the Willamette Bearcats on
Saturday, the prospective Thunderbirds have been very,
very busy smoothing out the rough spots that threaten to
hamper seriously Kabat's dream of the well-oiled machine
needed to compete with the American aggregation.
Fate  threw  a  dangerous  snare ■■■
into the backfield combination,
when starry Robert Murphy was
laid temporarily low with a recurrence of the knee injury which
plagued him last season when he
performed on the roster of the
Fighting Irish of Vancouver College. Last year a torn cartilage
kept the powerful fullback on the
bench for a good part of the season, and it is feared that the ailment might have cropped, up again.
However, the medicos hope to have
Murphy back in the lineup for
the initial contest.
Aside  from  Murphy's  absence,
practises  hava  been   proceedjing
with complimentary results to Kabat's coaching prowess.
Turning in a stellar performance
felling Murphy"s size ten cleats is
Rex Wilson, diminutive speedster
and letterman on the 1945 Hardy
Cup team. Aided by a fair display of blocking, Wilson has shaken himself loose from potential
tacklers on frequent occasions to
rack up considerable yardage.
Phil Guman, a 190 pound product of the 1941 Kitsilano steamroller and three years in the Air
Force, has regained the form that
made him an essential cog in Kabat's championship powerhouse
last season. Freddie Joplin continues to set up the backfield
power with his accurate blocking,
and has developed into a fair linebacker in the process.
Passer and ground-gainer deluxe

be fairly certain of a first-string
Herbie Capozzi, Phil Nixon, and
Gordie Genge, look like the pick of
the linemen, while the Sainas brothers, Gus and Bill remain strong
contenders as ends.
But no matter who finally nails
the positions on the line, one fact
stands out conspicuously: the 'Birds
are sadly lacking in defensive
strength. The front wall has not
been charging, and until UBC
tacklers can power In and permeate the opposition's baekfleld
before it gets moving, Varsity will
be consistently heading for the
showers on the shallow end of a
reverse score.

Refutes Rumour
RUMORS running rampant
around the campus about the now
fumous "Booster Passes" have
been repeatedly spiked by Graduate Manager of Sports, Luke
Moyls. The general drift of com
ment has it that the passes, selling
at the bargain price of five dollars
entitle the bearer to only bleach*,,
seats or some such wind-beaten

with   your   press  stated:   "Those
Dave Hayward and his exuberant
Jokers will take over sale of the
popular Booster Passes Wednesday
noon In the Caf. Jokers will be
selling the ducats during the impromptu pep ..meet which will
originate at the Jokers' table.
rumors savour of rash falsehood.
These passes will guarantee the
bearer to a reserved seat in the
Stadium or on the left-hand side
of the gym. So thcro!"
The Booster Pass, designed for
the pocket of the perennial sport
fan, can be procured from tho
office of the Graduate Manager
of Varsity Sport located conveniently in the basement of the
Brock next to the Pub. The number is limited: buy them, but buy
them now!
FOR THE FIRST time this year,
Varsity sport fans will be packing
the gym tomorrow at 12:30 for
that ls the time when the lowly
Freshmen get their big chance to
raise their morale just a little.
The occasion is the annual
Frosh-Soph hoopla tussle held
every year at this time to finish
off the week of initiation. The
Frosh are actually due to win this
year if the law of averages has
anything to do with the situation
but the Sophs have rather different ideas of the situation.
During the last five years, the
teams have divided the games
evenly but whether the Frosh can
keep up the trend remains to be
seen tomorrow.
Both coaches have now been appointed and both of the boys seem
confident that they have the winning combination ready.
Ritchie Nichol, lanky 'Birdman
with the largesome hands will bo
the brains behind the Freshmen's
antics. According to the smiling
gent, the game is all sewed up. As
Ritchie himself puts it, "We'll
lick 'em".

On the other side of the bench
will be another spark of tho
Thunderbirds, Ron Weber. Although Ron may not be quite as
large as big brother Ritchie, he's
been around a baskketball floor
quite a bit.
As yet the teams are not ascertained or in other words it's
not too late for YOU to get ou*

It is not essential that you be a

the year never does show a great
