Night'' programme to be performed downtown in. aid of the
Brock Roof.

Maunsell's Jacket from the

weather Mr. Maunsell needs
this Jacket. Therefore he asks
the person who borrowed it to
return the same. No questions
THE YOUNG LADY above, whose name is Diana Lam, is tickling a calf named Birdinand, who, judging by the smile on Miss Lam's face, (right) is in turn tickling Miss

New   Arts   Building   Heads
Faculty   Priority
Construction of a new Art»'(
Building was given priority I
by Dean and Deputy to the Presi- j
dent Geoffry C. Andrew in an j
outline to presented to the pro- j
vincial'government last week.      j
Dean Andrew described the j
present Arts building as one of i
the oldest buildings on the campus. He considered it "completely inadequate" for a univeristy
enrollment of 5,800 students.
Also included in the priority
list was a medical sciences centre, student residences and permanent buildings for the facul-
Riopel   To   Succeed
Longstaffe As Prober
Student Council Monday night appointed Dick Riopel to
succeed Ron Longstaffe as second one of the two Council members on the Committee to Investigate Discrimination in Fraternities.
The motion was presented by Longsaffe himself and seconded by Committee Chairman Jim Killeen.
Debate   To   Feature
NFCUS   President
Student Councill Will sponsor a noon debate on the National Federation of Canadian University Students, Wednesday
in Physics 200, featuring Doug Burns NFCUS President.
AMS  president   Dick   Underhill,   Treasurer   Ron   Bray   and
John Spencer, Law 2, will round
out the panel of speakers.
Burns arrived in Vancouver
Monday night trom tiie University ot Alberta.
Last year he was Student
Council president at Alberta.
At that time he also served as
Western Vice-President of NFCUS.
Burns spoke at Monday's
Council meeting and will appear
at a Faculty Club tea this afternoon.
Burns was elected full-time
President of the Federation at
last month's NFCUS conference
in Toronto.
He is making u national tour
of Canadian Uiversities and will
leave Thursday lor tiie East.
Drivers stopping to discharge
passengers along University Boulevard or the Center Mall in the
morning have been asked to
discontinue doing so by Mr. R.
M.   Bagshaw,   Comptroller.
"Accidents have only been
narrowly avoided several times
because of this practice," said
Mrs. Bagshaw. "More than 1500
cars come out to UBC every
morning, most of them between
8:00  and  8:30."
During    this   rush   hour,   the
Comptroller's Office will be forced to hand out tickets to those
who   do   not   cooperate   iu   this
respect    from    now   on.
I     Since   the   beginning   of   the
| fall term, students have received
1503 tickets for various offences.
Longstaffe resigned from the
Committee last month after a
three-week debate over his activities  on  the  Committee.

were instrumental in prompting
Longstaffe's Resignation will receive a letter notifying them of
the appointment.

Treasurer Ron Bray in a financial statement Monday night
described Gerry Hodge's Special Events Committee as being
in "poor shape."
The Committee which has

Although UBC's Fine Arts

I Also last week, President MacKenzie replied to student criticism   of   UBC's   housing   facil-
' Hies.
A public statement issued by
\ the president said, "students who
', criticize the housing here are
forgetting it is merely emergency accommodation which is
"It has never been thought of
as permanent housng," the statement added.
President MacKenzie said with
the exception of the $750,000
Women's Dorms financed by the
provincial government UBC's
housing has been provided "without any assistance from either
government or private sources."
"We are pulling ourselves up
by our bootstraps," he said.
President MacKenzie pointed
out the addition of more huts
this year had provided accommodation for forty more single
students and 11 more families.
He claimed UBC provides
housing for 1000 single students
and  207  families.
Existence of a "long" waiting
list shows in spite of the limitations we are still meeting a
need,"  he  said.
Wendy Seeks
Skill Gimmick
Looking into all possibilities
for fund-raising, Wendy Sutton,
Brock "raise the roof committee
chairman, said Monday that a
"raffle is out of the question."
Recent contact with the
Mayors Office revealed that all
, raffles offering prizes of any-
i thing over $50 were illegal. The
prize offered by tiie University
j Committee had been set at the
j price of one year's free tuition.
Miss Sutton is presently investigating prospects for some type
of skill contest. She said that
Ihe committee is searching for
a method of challenging student's
skill "slightly more difficult
than a bean guessing game."
The tuition prize will still be offered.
Queens Refuses Trip;
Stadium Is Flooded
Toronto Varsity Blues will face UBC Thunderbirds this
Saturday at 2 p.m. in UBC Stadium in the first East-West Intercollegiate football championship. •
A history-making erformancc
by the Toronto squad last Saturday necessitated complete
change in plans for the game
originally scheduled for November 27 in Empire Stadium.
By beating Queens 11-9 before 26,000 fans on Saturday
Toronto created a three-way tie
for first place in the Senior Intercollegiate League.
'tw«tn clotttt
By a flip of the coin Toronto
gained a buy into the League
final on the 27th. Western Ontario and Queens will meet in the
sudden-death semi-final this Saturday.
The loser of the semi-final
was to have played UBC on the
27th in Empire Stadium.
However, Queens informed
Dean Whit Mathews early yesterday morning that if they lose the
semi-final they will not come to
Vancouver. Dean Mathews immediately contacted Toronto who
agreed to fly here for this Saturday's game.
When everything appeared
settled someone took a look at
Empire Stadium field and found
it to be a pool of water. So the
game has been switched to UBC
instead of shooting for a crowc"
of 30,000 the Beat the East Com-
mitee intends to fill UBC Stadium with 8000 fans. The Stadium presently seats 6200 but
the Parks Board may agree to
furnish  1500 bleacher seats.
Ticket prices will remain the
same and students can still purchase $3.25 tickets for $2. A
student ticket blitz will take
place Wednesday and the downtown blitz will go ahead as planned on Friday.
The Toronto team will arrive
in town Thursday in time for
dinner and will be billeted in
fraternity houses on the campus.
The Pep Club is planning a reception for the team at the airport.

Those who think that Senator Joseph McCarthy died
when the democratics won senate control in the recent U.S.
Congressional Elections are indulging in some wishful thinking. Demagogues don't die that easily.
The late Senator Huey Long received setback after setback during his career, and yet he was well on his way to
becoming a serious contender for the presidency when he was
jpurdered. Huey was made the nation's butt of ridicule on at
least one occasion-something McCarthy has never had to
Apd Joe has a greater gimmick than ever possessed by
Huey Long or any demogogue: The bogey of Communism in
the "security" conscious United States.
Joe's loss of the Chairmanship of te Senate Investigating
Committee wasn't as disastrous to his power as everyone
likes to think. Already, a sign of his latent strength has
appeared in the present wavering of the Watkin's Committee.
It will not be too surprising if McCarthy is never given a vote
of censure by the U.S. Senate.
We might as well gird our loins for future battles with
the Senator from Wisconsin: He'll be with us for some time
to come.
Our Choice
We ask Dean Andrew what should come first-faculty
buildings or student residences?
We say housing.
It is unfortunate that UBC students are put in a position
af having to*"choose" between two necessary improvements.
At the risk of being naive we maintain that UBC should get
both buildings and houses.
The phoice rests on a look at the future. This university
will someday have an enrollment of 10,000 and upwards. It
is inconceivable that the present housing situation at UBC is
compatable with this.
But further than this we feel it is better to live in
decent conditions and study in squalor than let the opposite
President MacKenzie in a public statement admits to
buying more huts. When we advocate housing we don't mean
"temporary aecommodation"--we mean permanent student
If construction does not'start immediately on decent and
larger student housing students of ten years hence will
be pitching tents.
Last year The Ubyssey in a special edition illustrated
the squalid living conditions forced on UBC students. We are
not insane enough to ask for bigger and better pig sties.
We humbly inquire—how temporary is temporary?
Sell Tickets and UB
The best opportunity for UBC to sell itself to the public ,
has arisen in the coming East-West game against University
of Toronto. Although this game has been sprung on us a
week earlier than expected, we still have a chance to make
this event one of the biggest athletic events ever to- hit
this town.
If this undertaking can be a success, this town of ours
will finally realize that we at UBC are not the lethargic
deadbeats we are thought to be. But we might never change
their opinion of us, simply because UBC students will not
sell tickets. 	
All we were asked to do was to sell three tickets each.
One to ourselves, one to our parents, and one to a friend or
relative. Surely this was not an unreasonable request, and
yet UBC students don't seem to think enough of their school
to do even a small, almost effortless job in order to further
downtown prestige.
Assuredly, our main job is not to better our downtown
relations. But there are a lot of people who have put a lot
of time and energy into the preparation for the game. Their
hope is that the East-West Game will be an overwhelming
success for all concerned—students, spectators, and workers.
It would be a shame if everything fell through just for lack
of spectators on Saturday.
Therefore in order to minimize tho work, we ourselves
have to do, Isy Wolfe's Ticket Committee is coming to us
tomorrow to ask us to buy a studeni. ticket to the game.
Friday may be a little harder for each of us. We will have
to go all the way downtown and perhaps speak to strangers
and ask them to buy a ticket. But after we have sold two
of them, we will be able to go home and rest on our laurels.
We are faced with a task that involves a minimum
amount, of effort, and a maximum amount of opportunity to
demonstrate our loyalty to our University.
Will we do it?

I will tell you about My Promotion, the one that makes my
memory curl with silly laughter every time \ recall it.
I started my first work on a
metropolitan newspaper two
summers ago, and it was a venture surrounded by glamour.
High school essays are behind
me, I though as I walked into
the city room the first day.
Now I can buy a hat.
I was unconcerned when my
first assignment consisted of
writing meeting notices. — I
knew the airport and smoke-
filled room assignments would
come later.
Came the second day.
The city editor explained my
new task: I was to hang
around the press room of the
opposition newspaper, and
write down the times their presses started for each edition,
then bring them back to my
city desk as soon as possible.
I was shocked; I knew copy
boys had been doing this spying in the past. Was this to be
my fate? Freeing copy boys for
more important tasks? My eyes
were wet as I left the office.
But I was determined to
show I had the stuff to make
good. This job will probably
only last today—anyway, I said
to myself . . . weakly.
At first, I approached the
opposition press room timidly.
Then an Idea struck me. If I
walked in boldly and started
writing notes, they'd immediately throw me out, My editor
would have to send someone
But apart from puzzled glances, I, received no rebuffs. In
desperation, I walked over and
started plucking off each edition as it came off the presses.
Still no reaction.
So I went back to my office
the first day having fulfilled my instructions to the letter
and then some. An^ my city
editor was both puzzled and delighted.
"How did you ever manage
to get the papers?" he asked.
"Just took them," I replied.
Beaming, he said: "Damn
good. Go back tomorrow."
It continued for more than a
I would come to work, fresh
and eager in my grey flannel
suit, and leave with my nostrils
blackened from the invisible
dust of printer's ink, my hair
stiff with the stuff, and my
white shirt cursed with tattle-
tale grey
Nothing is dirtier than the
press room.
I tried to keep my movements secret from the copy
boys, but they eventually found
out. I have yet to find anything
more devastating than the
amused glance of a supercilious
copy boy.
And the workers in the press
room were still unconcerned at
my presence. It began to look
as though I would continue to
be a junior-grade spy indefinitely.
But one morning a worker
sidled over to me as I stood
jotting my notes, and conversationally asked: "Down from
Powell River, eh?"
I stared at him, my brain
whirring. Powell River . . .

I had been  unmolested!
It was. inconceivable. I
couldn't lie. "Er, ah . . . no, not
quite," I mumbled.
His eyes narrowed. "Then . .
?" he queried, one eyebrow
cocking' dangerously. "Oh, just
down from upstairs," I said unconcernedly, waving in y
thumb upwards.
His head turned doubtfully,
and lie looked at me out of the
corner of his eyes as he moved
Next day, I was only two
steps inside the press room
when the foreman, an unbelievably tall man, appeared in
front of me from nowhere.
"What do you want'.'" he demanded.
"Oh, just watching your
presses," I grinned weakly,
"They sorta interest me," I add-
Socio list
Editor, The Ubyssey;
The Ubyssey has recently
published an article dealing
with some signs advertising the
Western Socialist. I am one of
the persons who was involved
in the placing of these signs.
You mention that The Western Socialist is $860 in debt
and speculate on this being
the reason for the paper being
boosted on the campus. It may
be that the issue that found its
way to the offices of The Ubyssey was an old copy because
since that time the WS has
received donations of over $800.
While the paper is still in
debt, the real reason for its
being advertised on the campus was to arouse student interest in the magazine that
challenges conformity and provokes thought.
I am grateful for Mr. Loosmore for feeling that "to release  the name  of  the  individual would be unfair"

Every paper carries "news"
even if it is only a very small

articles should rightfully be
classed as "news stories."
Therefore, The Ubyssey should

The students of this University should not ignore the actual nature of The Ubyssey. The
main concern of the paper is in
reporting and discussing matters which directly concern the
students. Any article should be
cut down to its actual importance. Being the only paper on
the campus, The Ubyssey can
afford to be accurate and reasonable. It should give a reflection to the reader of his environment. In every paper there is
a sense of personal responsibility. Apparently, the discretion
of one individual is not sufficient as to what should and what
should not be censored A paper
should tell the truth; but, are'
the students capable of. receiving the truth? Who is to judge,
as to what is printed whether

My city editor laughed for a

was a Powell River executive,"
he kept gasping through tears
at his assistant.
That was the end of my spying.
My next assignment was covering a meeting of the British

After all, I had been mistaken
for a Powell River executive.

Campus LPP chieftain. Archie
McGugan, spoke to a student
audience Monday in a noon-
hour lecture sponsored by the
Student Christian Movement.
This is the first speaking appearance made by McGugan
since he organized the campus
LPP Club last year.
Presenting the Marxian viewpoint on "Man's Place in the Universe," McGugan said that
his appearance as a student in
the lecture series, which until
now has included only faculty
members, was the result of the
University's "d i s c r i m inatory"
policy of refusing to hire professors with communist ideals.
The doctrine of Materialism,
ln which man is master of his
own fule as opposed to Idealism
in which man is guided by a Divine power was cited by the
speaker to be the basis of communist theory.
"Pessimism has nothing to do
with Communist theory," he
said. "We believe In progress by
'leaps and bounds', and not
through a process of gradual
"This transition from theory
to practice by revolutionary
means >1b- one of the chief factors which distinguishes Communism from all other political
systems, and is the reason for
Communism's practical success
in the world today," he said.
Mr. McGugan further suggested that Capitalism has outlived
its usefulness in modern society,
and that over-production under
this system would lead either to
depression or increased war production, Common ownership under a socialistic system would, he
felt, solve the problems now facing capitalism.
"The time has come," he warned, "to free ourselves from the
restrictions" and old 'ties of class'
society and to progress to a higher plane of development."
Grant Hepburn was appointed
by Student Council Monday
night as Chairman of this year's
Student's Employment Service
The Committee acts as a lia-
son body between the students
and the University Employment
Service, presenting the student
point of view.

as a life-long career because
of its "nose to the grindstone"

Laden Blues At UBC
Game Saved From Sure
Drowning By 3-Way-Tie
A three-way tie in the Eastern Intercollegiate League, the
first that has ever happened there, has thrown more than one
monkey wrench into the plans for the East-West college final
For those of you who read
nothing but the sport page, and
haven't   read   the   front,   the
changes are these:
NOW NOV. 20th
Time is moved from November
27 to 20, team will be Toronto
Varsity Blues, and place will be
UBC stadium, with an increased
seating capacity of 9000, courtesy of the Parks Board.
The change in venue from the
Stadium to UBC means there
will be no 30,000 crowd, which
in turn means one K. B. Lamb
has been let out of a commitment to eat his hat.
Secondly, the spectacle will
now become a football game and
not a water polo contest, Something it would have been had it
been played in the Hastings
Street mud bath.
Thirdly, students may now get
as Jolly well stinko as they
please, for we will be in our
homegrounds, and not in the
alien territory of the thug ridden City of Vancouver.
The chance that brought the
Blues out here was indeed kind
to the ticket sales. There is many
an old Varsity grad in the city,
anxious to get his chance of a
lifetime to try to prove Eastern
football spirit is more incensed
than ours. K„ *
There is also a chance that the
Birds will meet the powerful
Blues with some surprises to off*
set the odds advantages the Toronto team will carry into the
game. The eligibility is holding
a special meeting to decide on
the standings of the football
The game will be played under CRU rules featuring a strict
Canadian game except for down-
field blocking. The word from
the East is that the Blues will
take kindly to this for they claim
it is much easier for a Canadian
club to adapt itself to the American code than vice versa.
And they love that unlimited
Nobody is selling Birds short,
but Jim Boulding is the only
sure returnee from the injury
list. Omar Nyhaug, Kevin O'Connell and Gordy Elliot are indefinite starters, while Ross
Rayemnt is out for sure.
Pray for rain, fans, because
the Blues passing yardage, equally effective with both quarters,
Bill Stevenson and Harry Wil*
son, reads like a Canasta score.
In a game against McGill, the
pair tossed for 387 yards.
Keep selling those tickets.
Spectators  Are
Alright,   But ...
At 2:30 p.m. on the 20th of November at UBC Stadium
an optimistically-predicted 10,000 fans will cheer the opening
kick-off of the East-West collegiate football spectacle.
UBC will represent the west; University of Toronto will represent the east. And our Thunderbirds will be favored to lose;
like chickens against chicken-hawks.
The most partial of fanatical campus-followers, or those disciples afflicted with galloping British Columbitus, could not truly
conceive of the 'Birds as 'favorites." For one thing, we are not
"deep" enough, as the saying goes.
The first string players are capable, strong and willing. A
key man is injured, and his position is filled by one who is less
able, less strong, though desperately willing. Our reserves are
The east—and remember this game is being advertised as a
"SPECTACLE"—will be "deep" in players. Depth is the keynote
of the Toronto squad—and they are going to be "up" to "Beat
the West!" Odds in favor of the east will be about 4 to 1, if present
conditions prevail.
No one ever has—or rather ever should—question the Thunderbirds' gameness or grit. They, like the affectionate 19th century
heroine, "give their all" every Saturday. But to what ends?
For 30 of 60 playing minutes of a game, they fight fiercely
over their heads to keep the score close. In the second half they
are smeared.  A reason? ... No depth.
Against Evergreen Conference competition we are handicapped by our lack of athletic scholarships and subsidation policies.
We ask no favors, and are given none by our Yankee foes. Nonetheless, by attempting to compete under such conditions, it is
similar to racing Citation against Native Dancer—one jockeyed by
Eddie Arcaro, the other by Doug Hepburn.
Now everyone—east and west—wants to see a good game on
the 20th. This is not a conference match; it is a publicity game
to enhance football prestige.
An exciting exhibition may well lead to the bringing of a
Grey Cup contest to Vancouver. A hopeless drubbing by UBC
will not win fans. And it CAN be avoided.
On campus—studying—are two individuals who could double
Varsity's power for this off-the-record tilt. Jack Hutchinson and
Gerry Palmer both played for B.C. Lions this year, and both should
be in physical condition to play for UBC.
Granted, the principle of using "pros" is wrong; definitely
wrong. However, in this case they are bona-fide students, and
would be invaluable aid to the GAME of football—not just to
the Birds—if permitted  to  play  for  Varsity.
It would make for an infinitely better game on the big day,
though UBC still would be the darkest of dark underdogs.
This match too, could be the hinge deciding the direction
football will take at UBC.
If those thousands of spectators receive a football treat, they
will be back for more next season. The converse is even more
painfully true. Hutchinson and Palmer could turn a famine into
a feast, so how about rules being stretched to permit these two
to wear the Blue and Gold for just this once. Remember . . .
"Into life a little rain mu^t
fall," was a well quoted phrase
on the campus as two grass-
hockey games and one rugger
game ware handed a rain-
check by old man weather
this weekend.

BUZ HUDSON, who jumped out
of the uniform he's wearing
into baskeball strip, contributed
his usual hard playing over the
weekend to aid Pomfret's Birds
to a home split.
Rugger  XV s  Win
Both  Muddy  Tilts
The monsoonic downpours of last Saturday failed miserably to dampen UBC's rugger enthusiasm or prowess, as
Chiefs downed James Bay 12L3, and Braves humbled Kats by
an identical 12-3 count. *	
For the first portion of the
game James Bay held well, and
trailed only»3-0 at half time. A
neat penalty kick by Bill Whyte,
from an angled 20 yards, 5 minutes before the half ended, was
the only scoring of the period.
Most of the play Jockeyed
about in midfield, with very
little to chdose between the
two squads. A nose-nursing Ross
Wright played an exceptionally
strong running game, and at
times overpowered the Victorian tacklers.
Chiefs Beat
In Revenge
Chiefs rebounded into the win
column bver the weekend with a
6 to 4 victory over Households
in a game which saw them get
revenge for their 3 to 2 defeat
at the hands of the Households
earlier this  season.
Jargen Schilling, centre-half,
led the forwards with two goals;
while Monty Little, left half,
led the backs with two, both
on pan a Ity shots. Right halfback Brian Biart and Outside
right Lloyd Edwards, each pumped home one apiece to round
oujt the Chief's scoring. Edward's
goal came on a neat corner
The field was extremely wet
and slippery and caused the defence to weaken at times. The
regular goaltender for the Chiefs
failed to make the game so
Alan Jagdas filled in between
the posts and played well
enough to hold off the Household forwards long enough for
the win.
During the intermission the
James Bay boys repaired to the
dressing room for their rest,
while Varsity remained on the
swamp, listened to coach Albert
Laithwait's advice, and shiver-
fects of the rest period blossomed in the second half.
James Bay, in a burst of Stadium warmth, tied the score at
3-3 on a beautiful penalty kick
by Pynn. The Vancouver mist
soon cooled them off however,
and the hardened Varsity XV,
led by the scrum drives of Derek
Vallis and Jim MacNicol, roared to the attack.
Bob Bartlett started a lateral
passing run which culminated
in Al Laird scoring an unconverted try over the right corner,
to raise Varsity's lead to 6-3.
"Donny" (showing signs of
missing his "Johnny" for this
game) Spence, pop-kicked to the
Victoria backs. He raced down
to dribble the muffed Victoria
catch, to the enemy goal line,
where Al Richardson swan-dived
on the ball to score for Varsity.
Whyte's conversion attempt failed,   and  UBC  led 9-3.
Derek Vallis passed to Dick
Owen, who scored the final
points of the game, which ended
In the Bell-Irving series a
war-painted Varsity Braves massacred Kats 12-3. Bob Sinclair
Teeder Hunt, "Mad" Tom Anthony and Glynn Fitzgerald
counted unconverted coups for
the Braves. Hunt played his
usual fine game, while the
whole team rose to the wet
occasion and scalped the Kats
all the way. Braves are still the
"lossless   wonders   of  Varsity."
