VANCOUVER, B.C., WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 8, 1947

Council Bars
Ubyssey
From Meet
Representatives of The Daily
Ubyssey were barred from reporting developments in the
caf table controversy at Monday night's meeting of the Student Council.
Charges of unconstitutional action
were raised by the editorial board of
The Daily Ubyssey following the
news ban.
"Council has no legal justification
for declaring their meeting closed,"
they protested.
The code of the AMS states that
any student may attend the Monday
night meetings of the Council.
"It is only through the news reporting of The Daily Ubyssey that
the student body can keep some
check on the actions of their student
council," they complained.
The motion demanding that no
coverage other than the actual motion
be printed was proposed by Grant
Livingstone, president of the AMS.

Its All Greek To Council;
Faculty Gets Table Fight
Meeting behind locked doors, Students' Council passed
the caf table controversy on to the administration Monday night.

Students South For Game
Greeks, Women Aid
Community Chest
Women's Undergraduate Society
and the Inter-Fraternity Council have
pledged support for the Community
Chest campaign.
WUS will donate all proceeds from
the annual Fall Fashion Show, and
IFC will give all profits from tlie
Mardi Gras.
IFC's annual Mardi Gras will be
held at the end of the third week of
January. Last year $3894 from this
affair was turned over to the women's
auxiliary of Shaughnessy Hospital.
The Fashion Show will be October
22 in Brock Hall. Last year's proceeds went to the Gym fund.
IFC voted unanimously at their
noon meeting Tuesday to support the
Community Chest, and WUS promised their support Saturday.
In view of the support being shown,
no general Community Chest Drive
will be held on the campus this year.
Authoritative sources revealed that
council discussed the matter for 30
minutes and were split on whether
to drop it completely or to press
action further.
The final motion asking action by
the administration was passed but
Nora Clarke, Bob Bagnall, and Taddy
Knapp, were not in favor and are
recorded as dissenting.
It is believed that the three dissenting members were in favor of
dropping  the  matter  entirely. ~~'
Bob Harwood and Grant Livingstone
are said to have asked further action
from the administration.

Aggies Eligible
For $100 Prize
Graduates, or undergraduates in
the third or fourth year of agricultural engineering, are eligible for a
$100 cash prize announced  today.
The prize is a gift to the university from Jack Bell, of Northern Peat
Moss Co. Ltd.
The award will be made on the
recommendation of the faculty of
Agriculture to the student submitting the best report on any phase
of peat moss, its formation and use.
If no report reaches the required
standard the award will be withheld.
Students who intend to compete for
this prize must consult the Dean of
Agriculture before beginning work
on the report. The award will be
made  in May,  1948.
Health Service
To Impose Fine
UBC students who fail to keep
appointments with the health service
department will be fined $2, UBC
President Norman MacKenzie
ncunced Tuesday.
an-
"It has come to my attention that
a number of first and second year
sudents have not been keeping their
appointments," he said.
As doctors must be paid by the
University unless the Health Service
has been notified of cancellations the
fine is only reasonable," declared
the president.
CALLER WANTS
'PROF' MOYLS
Pubsters rate high In the estimation of some people.
A flattering call came into the
Pub offices Tuesday for "Professor" Luke Moyls. Moyls, a
former Ubyssey sports editor, is
now graduate manager of athletics.
It was not Moyls who was phoning.
Vain Females Outnumber
Men For Totem Pictures
Women, vain creatures that they are, outnumber men four
to one in the Totem photography studios of J. C. Walberer,
When told of the disproportionate
ratio, Totem Editor Don Stainsby
quipped: "We don't want this to look
like a hen college."
Stainsby and Walberer appealed to
freshmen to drop around to the club
hut behind Brock Hall to get their
pictures taken.
And, a.s an added inducement,
freshman deadline has been extended
to next week.
This, explains Stainsby, means that
freshmen will be able to get their
pictures taken next week, but will
have to be squeezed in among upper
year  Artsmen.
Starting next week the Totem
photographer will be taking portraits of upper year Arts, including
Home Economics, Commerce and
Physical Education.
■&-
Freshmen pictures will also be
taken during this period. But, warns
Stainsby, if the rush is great then
second and higher years will get
the priority over Frosh.
Gowns and hoods will be supplied
for  the students  in  their  graduating
years.
Women will be provided with
"mortarboards"   for   pictures.
Graduates may, if they wish, see
proofs of their pictures, and decide
which one they want to appear in
the Totem. There will be an extra
fee of 50 cents for proof service.
Portraits are $1.50 for two sittings,
the better of which will appear in
the Totem. A 4x6 mounted portrait
will be delivered to the campus.
Failures Marked
History Of Blood
Dr. L. E, Ranta, professor in
the Department of Bacteriology and Preventive Medicine,
has a little story he likes to
regale students with at the beginning of their course on blood
types.     r
It seems that in 1942 Pope Innocent
VII was on the verge of death and
the court physician decided that a
blood transfusion would bring him
back to health.
So this daring predecessor of
modern science proceeded to give the
Pope the first known blood transfusion, u,sing the blood of two young
boys.
Unfortunately the transfusion was
a failure, which probably set science
back two or three hundred years.
The Pope died, the boys died, and the
eminent physician has not been heard
from since.
TIME PASSES
It was not until 1901, when Land-
stiner discovered the three main types
of blood that this science managed
to recover from its near fatal blow.
Fortunately it is not necessary for
the blood of the donor to match the
blood of the recipient exactly.
It is ' important, however, thai the
blood should match in several respects, and to ensure this, extensive
laboratory tests are carried out with
both donors and recipient's blood
immediately prior to every transfusion.
RH FACTOR
All blood donors receive a card
after registration complete with details as to blood grouping and noting
volunteers with the RH negative
factor.
Dr. Ranta stated that the RH factor
bugaboo is not as serious as magazine
writers would have us believe, because the factor is extremely rare.
In most cases infants who have the
.e Inflicting RH negative and RH
positive elements present can be
saved by practically replacing their
blood with a transfusion directly
after birth, he added.
USC Takes Over
Brock Hall Hut
Undergraduate Societies Committee
has taken over the second hut behind Brock Hall to be divided into
headquarters for the Commerce Undergraduate Society, Arts Undergraduate Society and Pre-Med Society.
The 36 by 24 foot hut was given
over to Stu Porteous at the summer
meeting of the Brock extension committee who in turn handed it over
to Rosemary Hodgins, USC chairman,
to draw up planj for its conversion.
Construction on the hut will start
next week and it is hoped by committee members that work will be
completed in three weeks. A phone
has already  been installed.
Legion Probes
High Vet Rents
UBC branch of the Canadian
Legion has declared war on
high rents in the university
area.
An investigation to be launched
into excessive rents being paid by
university student-veterans was disclosed Tuesday at a general meeting
of the legion branch.
Branch President Perry Millar invited those who feel they are being
charged excessive rents to report to
the legion offices. All complaints
will be investigated, he said.
STUDENTS COMPLAIN
Rents of $60 a month are considered
excessive for DVA students since few
receive more than that as ex-service
gratuities, he said, A number of
complaints from students led to tlie
legion action, it was reported.
Dr. N.A.M. MacKenzie, university
president, congratulated legion members on their "fine'' contribution on
the campus in the past two years.
The honorary president of the university branch went on to say that
those who served their country in
time of war, should serve community
end   country   in   times  of   peace.
BLOOD  NEEDED
Opening the general meeting, Perry
Millar, branch president .introduced
Cliff Greer, head of university blood
donors drive.
Greer urged legion members to
support the blood drive one hundred
per cent. He pointed out that 1,000
c.c. of blood were required by November, or donations from 3,000 persons.
Cheer Leaders, Drum Majorettes
To Brighten Washington Trek
More than 500 UBC students are expected to "follow the
'Birds to Bellingham" Saturday when a special Great Northern
train will take Varsity rooters south for a game with Western
Washington Teachers College.
Hawaii To Send
IRC Delegates
World-wide interest is being shown
in the North West Regional Conference of International Relations Clubs,
Varsity's IRC told the Daily Ubyssey
Tuesday.
Latest inquiries to reach UBC, local
members said, come from the University of Hawaii, whose club there
has asked for information on the
November 21 and 22 meeting, and has
expressed the intention of sending a
delegate to the UBC campus.
Four colleges in the state of Washington have also stated their intention of sending delegations to UBC.
Chief speaker at the conference
will be Peter H. Odegard, president
of  Reid  College,  Portland..
The specially chartered train will
take cheer leaders, drum majorettes,
Arthur Delamonte's University band
and UBC pipers on the southern excursion.
The train leaves Great Northern
station Saturday at 3 p.m., arriving
in  Bellingham about  4:45.
SPECIAL FARES
Game time is 8 p.m., and the engine
will turn homewards at 11 p.m.     ,
Tickets will cost students and outsiders participating in the excursion
$2.15 and a tax of 30 cents, making
a total of $2.45. Students will have
to provide for one meal, and 50 cents
admission to the game. ,
It is expected a section of the
bleachers will be reserved for Thunderbird supporters.
Tickets will be sold today at noon
in the Quad box office and the
Great Northern depot, said Jerry
Macdonald,  LSE president.
BANDS PARADE
A guarantee of $1100 has been put
up by the Alma Mater Society, and
it will take 512 students to cover
the guarantee.
"A person would be foolish to go
by car," said Macdonald, "because
he'd miss all the fun."
No large scale invasion like this
has been planned since before the
war, said Macdonald. There were
minor jaunts by the students last
year to Victoria and Tacoma.
It is expected Thunderbird supporters will parade to the stadium ;n
Bellingham, led by the drum majorettes and the bands, said Macdonald.
Toronto Vetoes
Game Admission
TORONTO, Oct. 8-(CUP)-Tbe
practice of levelling admission charg-
es at inter-varsity football games has
drawn the ire of members of the
student body here.    *
Student groups on th U. of T.
pus have raised their voices ag
the levying of admission since up to
this year games were free to all undergraduates.
Transport Board
Sees Loop Service
Direct loop service from 41st and
Dunbar and from 4th and Alma is
being considered as a result of information received by the UBC transport Coffmission, it was disclosed
yesterday.
The information came from 2,247
questionaires which were received
from students living within the limits of Vancouver or coming into the
city  by  interurban  trams.
Analysed into various districts,
the survey shows student distribution as follows: downton area west
of Granville, 150; downtown area
east of Granville, 31; Powell Street
area. 8; East Hastings area, 88.
The above students make up 12%
of the whole student body canvassed.
Forty-two per cent come from the
area along Broadway. Broken down
this shows the students as follows:
Broadway west of Granville, 294;
Granville south, 107; Marpole Interurban, 108; 41st and Dunbar, 174; Macdonald bus, 165; 10th west of Granville, 64.
There are 387 students coming
from the area around Cambie Street
and  415 from  the  Sasamat  area.
Savings Bonds Go
On Sale Here
Dominion Securities Company are
again selling Canada Savings Bonds
on the campus with commissions on
all purchases going to the AMS.
The sum of $144 realized in commissions on the 1946 bond drive was
given to the War Memorial Gym
Fund.
The bonds, which went on sale for
th first time this year on October 6,
can be bought until November 15, in
both the AMS office in the Brock
building and in the bursar's office
for faculty members. Office hours are
from 11:30 to 1:30 daily and until 12
noon on Saturdays.
Bonds are obtainable in all denominations from $50 to $1000 with payments being either made in cash or
arranged through a bank. Interest on
all Canada War Savings Bonds is
23:i% payable semi-annually until the
bond matures itt'ten years.
URS Offers Club
Recording Device
Home Economics students learning
demonstration techniques will have
their voices recorded on the University Radio Society's recorder, according to Radsoc president Ernie
Perrault.
"This is the flrs-t group", he said,
"to take advantage of this particular
facility of the club. Any other organization showing legitimate need
for any service we can offer will be
welcome."
Purpose of the recording will be
to train women in demonstration
technique and to instruct them in
improving their voice.
It will train them also in the development of radio personalities
which will be valuable in some fields
of  Home Economics.
A typical note of protest was is
by Jeff Johnston, Progressive Conservative club president, who declared, "Charging for admission to
intercollegiate games is unjustified
and is imposing another financial
burden on the already hard-pressed
students."
Previously the cost of the games
had been considered to be covered
by athletic fees paid by all undergraduates but now a charge of $1.51
is set on all tickets.
Phil Ashmore, president, stated he
believed that the Athletic Director-'
ate's main effort had not been to
raise money but to find a place m
the Stadium for every student whe
wished to see the game.
Political Clubs
Must State Party
All "political" clubs on the UBC
campus must reveal their party c«»-
nections or face suspension of their
Alma Mater Society grant.
Notices have been sent to all political "discussion" clubs on the campus ordering them to change their
names to the party which they embrace.
Approval of budgets submitted by
clubs will be withheld until the regulation is complied with, Jerry Macdonald, president of the literary and
scientific executive, declared.
Most clubs must also amend their
constitutions to satisfy members of
Students Council.
Political clubs on the campus, approved by students at an AMS meeting last week, are registered as minor
clubs under the literary and scientific
executive.
SSF Presents
Lecture Series
Tlie University Students Socialist
Forum executive has planned a series of lectures by both Forum members and prominent guest speaker*,
according to Murray Bryce, SSF'
president.
It is proposed to have Forum members conduct a series of educational'
meetings designed to give studaottf
a grasp of the basic ideals of socialism, while the guest speakers wflfl1
discuss immediate social and pofitit-
cal questions facing the Canadian
people, he said.
In answer to a queston Murraj
Bryce said, "The Students Socialist
Forum has planned a program for uV
forthcoming year which should »
rouse even greater interest among'
the students than did last year's program."
Last year the SSF presented such
speakers as Sam Watson, executive
member of the British Labor Partjr„
and Paul Robeson, noted America*]

THE RETURN OF CULTURE
The University is to be thrown into the
public spotlight in a new field in the near
future. We refer to the November performance of the "Airborne Symphony" in which
UBC has a very active interest.
On November 30, as a program in the
regular concert series of the Vancouver
Symphony Orchestra. Mr. Jaques Singer will
conduct Marc Blitzstein's composition in its
Canadian premiere. In planning the performance of this great modern work. Mr. Singer
has provided the University with the unprecedented opportunity of furnishing this
symphony's most vital part—the chorus.
It is not hard to understand why Mr.
Singer's proposal has been greeted with such
enthusiastic response, for it is an opportunity
that the University as a whole can make
good use of in more than one way.
The fact that the chorus is so very important to the production of the work puts
the students in a very fine light. It indicates
to the general public that UBC students are
once again doing something big, a work of
art of which university students are definitely
capable.
This will be one very fine chance for our
students to express their thanks to the Van
couver Symphony who have undertaken to
sponsor our own concerts to the extent of
$5,000 or approximately half of their cost.
The enthusiasm and work of the chorus
should help to show the appreciation of the
student body.
This underwriting by an outside sponsor
is undoubtedly a step in the right direction.
It is to be hoped that the day will come when
all our concerts will be completely sponsored.
And if that day isn't in the very near future,
it won't be the fault of the hard working
president of the LSE, Jerry MacDonald.
Besides all the advantages that the rest
of us can see in this concert, those actually
taking part will have the opportunity of
getting some excellent training and a great
deal of fun out of the whole production. It
should most certainly be an experience of
great value in their future.
It is very much in order to thank Mr.
Singer for this fine opportunity that he has
presented to the University. Our students
appreciate this chance to put UBC in the
spotlight again.
Our University is once more becoming a
centre of culture rather than a trade school.
The Children's Hour
By LES BEWLY
Let that stand, by fearsome little forget-
me-nots, as an example of the vile baseness
of editorial man and the sublime uncertainty
of human affairs. So we bury Jabez on Tuesday, and he climbs out of the grave and
appears grinning in print on Wednesday.
Dead, you might say, but won't lie down.
Has to be sitting up to do it.
Nevertheless, no one can make a sucker
out of your uncle, pardner, and not have a
monument to show for it. So the Jabez Memorial Fund roars on; but with, as the editorial
writers say, a renewed determination and a
heightened purpose. Whatever that means.
But if the ghost of the late Prince of Whimsy
gets any more disruptive assistance from a
certain Wednesday editor, to transform him
into a prankish printshop poltergeist and
louse up this noble idea, why, they'll be two
new memoh'yalls instedda one, partner.
The nerve of those guys. I
Little Miss Lyle,  , who presides
at the AMS office in the jewel capacity of
postmistress for campus affairs (moderately
risque title, that one) and czarina of information, informs us that it has stopped snowing
letters .Last week we hoped that at least ten
of you would write and say "count me in"
on the proposed Jabez Memorial.. Twenty-
seven of you responded; and for those cries
of encouragement, thank you. Some of you
even enclosed money in your letters, though
we didn't ask you for it. But, by Jabez (watch
that, Mr. Proofreader) we bless you for it.
DEMOCRATIC DONATIONS
There was a nice democratic nature
about those donations. Penurious students
and the fabulously wealthy were both represented and no one sent less than a nickel.
One correspondent, swinging right into the
spirit of the thing, enclosed a brand new jit
with the slogan: "A Nickel for A Nicol" and
ended up with a cheery: "See you St. Valentine's day." Nothing surer, sir; nothing
surer.
Magnificently unperturbed by the bureaucrats' torpedoing of the Sciencemen's Entertainment Budget, and reckless of their own
personal reserves, three stout Redshirts penciled us a note marked "Long Live Jabez!"
and lashed out with six—c"ount them—six
dimes. (Note to Artsmen: So far it's Science-
men, two to one, boys, in this tribute to a
fallen Artsangel.)
And a nice note from someone who must
be rich as Croesus, but not in money alone.
Sounds a little like an Old Grad, or some of
your parents, kiddies. At any rate, the note is
signed  "Anonymous";  and attached  to it  is
real, true, no-question-about-it folding money.
It reads:
"Some of the Moms and Pops laughed, too; so please put this towards the
plaque fund for the JABEZ memorial.
We think he is a wonderful writer and
we shall miss the MUMMERY ..."
Thank you for those words, Mom and
Pop, whoever you are, and wherever you are.
We have a feeling, looking at your note, that
you've had a good many laughter-filled moments in your lives, and approve our memorial to laughter.
A READER'S SUPPORT
Another reader writes to promise her
support, and makes the suggestion that the
proposed memorial take the form of a sundial,
bearing the following inscription:
"Horas non numero nisi serenas"
(I count only the sunny hours.)
That's a beautiful thought, madam. Look
well on the Library Jawn. The object of all
this sickening adulation really has a reverse
sundial effect, though, in the sense that he
turned the shadows into sunshine. But we
know what you mean, and we'll keep it in
mind.
All of which brings us to a final point,
kiddies. This is probably the most relaxed,
most un-organized, loosest, easiest, non-profit-
est, non-ssssboom-rah collection ever held
on this campus. It has, and will have, no
liaison committee, no rads committee, no
ways and.means committee, no publicity committee, no pep-meets, no fireworks displays,
&o bands, no dancing girls, no parades, vocal-
fits, orchestras or kisses-for-sale booths (y'all
get kissed too much, anyhow) and positively,
no speeches. It has one paid organizer (that's
us) who gets four cents (4c) per, morith to
keep him in toothpicks, for ruminating on
and getting new ideas with. There's so little
Drive in this thing, that it's just not a Drive,
but a Creep. This is strictly an old-shoe,
gallus-and-suspender ,grass-roots movement,
and we're going to keep it that way. We've
been told that we should put twenty more
cylinders under it and some fancy oil in it,
and go after you scientifically, but we don't
see it that way. Hell, it's a memorial to
laughter we're after, not a Successful Drive.
What's more, we think you agree.
Well, so long. We're going to scrounge
around to borrow a chair and a tin can, and
make plans to be sitting around when you
come out of the next DVA lineup. And remember, now—■ a nickel or a dime onlyi
We're getting the tin with the small-sized
hole. It won't take a quarter, so you can't
throw your weight around. Be seeing you.

Character Check
For Queen Frosh
Kingston, Oct. 8 — (CUP)—Freshmen entering Queen's University this
year ure being given short "personality appraisals" as part of then
medical  examination.
The purpose of the personality
chock, according to Dr. P. M. Mne-
rlonnell, university medical officer, is
first, to find students problems they
like to discuss with a trained counsellor and second, to publicize the counsellor's  service   for   the  coming  year.
"We are interested in perfectly
normal people who for some reason
can't sleep at night or who have
something bothering them" the medical officer stated, "We also want to
bear ex-servicemen who are coming
to school after five or six years of
war,"
Freshman protests
Dear Sir:
Congratulations on yesterday's editorial entitled "Our Boys". It is just
: bout time someone took the science-
men to task. I will be first to commend school spirit and friendly inter-faculty rivalry but when one
feculty attempts to build up this rivalry to the point where it endangers
the general good of the university,
it is  time something was done.
Freshman   who   was   thrown   in

Exit the Engineers
Dear Sir:
The Engineers are pleased to abide
by the decision set by the Student
Council and commend them on the
methods used to introduce new policy.
The Engineers are pleased to read
in their Daily Ubyssey such a reasonable, accurate, and intelligent expression of opinion.
The Engineers are sorry to learn
that such a serious state of bankruptcy existed with student finances nt
the beginning of the year.
The Engineers are sorry that their
actions caused the Student Council
cmbarrasssment almost to the point
of resignation.
Finally,   I   am   sorry   that   my   flus-
tration and apparent frustration caused  such  a  serious  threat   to  the  autonomy of our student government.

111 feeling aroused
Dear Sir:
Your editorial in the Tuesday Ubyssey has aroused me to write my first
'letter to the editor" in five years
at this University. Maybe this i.s your
intention, but it appears to me that
the tone of your editorials i.s more
calculated to arouse interfaculty ill-
feeling than to promote an interest
in student government.
Students have a right and a duty
to keep a careful watch on the spending of their money. That student vigilance is necessary is proved by the
deficit of last year and the unequal
distribution of faculty funds which
has passed unnoticed for the last decade.
We shall criticize the budget whenever we feel it is not satisfactory. I
would request that the Ubyssey publish the budget before the AMS meeting next year so that we shall be
able to examine it more closely.

Homes For 79
At UBC Town'
An answer to the housing
problem of 79 Vancouver families is rising out of the bush a
few minutes walk from the
UBC campus.
But the Modern University
Village, a half-million dollar
project near Acadia camp, so
called because it's modern and
near the university, probably
won't mean a great deal <o
house hungry students.
"We just thought it sounded like
a good name", smiled youngish, quiet
E. Simpson, who with C. B. Balfour
is undertaking this project just off
the Boulevard at Acadia Road.
However the project is certainly
^'modern", particularly in its proportions. "It occupies an area of
about two city blocks, and will cost
aproximately half a million dollars"
said Mr. Simpson.
GOING AHEAD
Construction is well under way, and
already   the   appearance   which   the
finished project will present can be
visualized.
The eleven two^story buildingn,
now in various stages of construction, are laid out in three rows. Between each row a constructor's
battlefield of piled earth and deep
ditches   makes  progress   difficult.
Eventually, however, the village
"streets" will run between the rows,
complete with sidealks and boulevards.
When completed, the project will
provide a total of 79 suites, each consisting of two bedroms, dining room,
living room, kitchen and bathroom.
Modern kitchen facilities will be installed, if the supply situation permits, said Mr. Simpson.
He refused to commit himself on
the question of rentals. However, he
indicated preference would be given
to veterans.
SUPPLY SITUATION
It is hoped that the project will be
completed by the end of the year,
although much depends on the supply situation, Mr. Simpson said. Two
of the buildings will be ready for
occupation in a few weeks, if water
and light can be laid on.
Mr. Simpson, personally directs the
small army of carpenters, plasterers,
plumbers and other workers on the
site.
Clarke Postpones
Hi-Jinx^ Party
Hi-Jinx, originally scheduled for
the week before the fashion show
has  been  postponed  to a  later date.
According to Nora Clarke, the two
functions would have been too close
together to get an enthusiastic response.
The date for the annual hen party
has jnot been decided but will be
some time after the fashion show.
BIDS  OPEN
FOR WAA POSTS
Students are reminded that nominations to the Women's Athletic Association and the Men's Athletic
Directorate are now being accepted
in the AMS office.
So far only two have been received:
Miss Jackie Shearman for the position of President, WAA, and Miss
Jean MacKinnon for that of Treasurer, WAA.
Deadline for nominations is today
at 4:30 pjn.
Most Office Help
Must Wear 'Specs'
Eighty percent of all office workers
in  America wear glasses.
This was (he figure quoted Mon-
dn.v by Dr. Matthew Lcekicsh, director of the Cevcland General Electric
lighting laboratory, in an address
a I  UBC.
In spile of poor lighting prevailing
today, modern vision has improved a
thousand fold in the last 20 years, he
said.
He saw the possibility that present
generation "may yet have effieent
lighting   in   its  public   institutions.

GREEK SORORITY TABLES, which students charged were monopolized by cigarette-smoking, coke-drinking co-eds are the centre of a "tempest in a teapot" now dragging into its third

greeks: "Our tables are open to all."   But countered other students: "Sly looks are effective."
Digest's Neat, Lucid Prose
Loses In Private War
By GEORGE
The Reader's Digest Association, of
Pleasantville, New York, has just fired what
I suspect to be its closing shot in my direction
to conclude a private war of seven months
between the Digest and me.
For seven months the Digest has been
bombarding me with coy notes cajoling me
into continuing my subscriptions or taking
advantage of a special Christmas offer or
into sending ,with my compliments, fourteen
free issues of the Digest to fourteen chosen
friends.
As a matter of fact, apart from an occasional half-hour glance through the Digest
at my favorite newsstand, the first actual
contact I had with the magazine occurred
when some friend mistook me for someone
who could read and put me on his list of
fourteen. ,
AMAZING NEW OFFER
That started it. No sooner had the first
free issue arrived than I was assailed with
several communications signed by a Carolyn
Davis of the Reader's Digest Association, advising me to start taking the Digest regularly under an amazing new offer.
,The offer, if I remember, enabled me to
obtain seven issues of the Digest for only
one dollar—an offer, the homey little letter
said, unparalleled in publishing history.
Whether it was the summer heat or the
sound of crisp, new dollar bills crackling
in my pocket, I'm not sure. All I do know
is that I had dutifully dispatched the sum of
one dollar to the Reader's Digest Association.
Pleasantville, New York, to take advantage
of the new, amazing offer, unparalleled in
publishing history.
UNPARALLELED OFFERS
In return I received not only the first
of the seven issues but a handy 256-page
book entitled, "How to Get the Most out of
Life," both of which are now resting comfortably in the attic, comparatively unread.
Autumn and winter came and went, and
with them came and went the other six issues
of the Digest, accompanied by various offers
unparalleled in publishing history. March,
however, brought an unexpected and unpaid-
for eighth issue of the Digest, which went
straight to the attic, in case the Reader's
Digest Association should try to prove I had
ROBERTSON
robbed them of twenty-five cents worth ot
the best reading in the country.
PAY LATER
The explanation has just arrived, however, and lies before me on the desk proclaiming its message in bold, blood-red type:
"Renew your Digest now . . . and Pay Later!"
Conjuring up visions of FBI agents lashing
me to the kitchen stove and preparing to tear
open my flesh with a lash while others search
under the bed and behind the wardrobe for
hidden dollar bills, I read on to the second
paragraph, which took a somewhat more
smug tone.
"We hope the complimentary MARCH
copy that we are sending to you FREE comes
as a pleasant surprise. Many publishers
stop mailing copies as soon as a subcription
expires."
WE'RE BETTER
No word of apologetic modesty, no embarrassed cough, no lowering of the eyebrows. Just the plain, bald statement of
fact—"we aren't one of the run-of-the-mill
publishers. (We're a little better than most
publishers.") (The second paragraph is even
more condescending:)
"FEBRUARY was the last issue due on
your subscription. We are mailing this extra
number in the belief that you meant to send
in your renewal and then—quite humanly—
forgot."
Well, Digest—we all admit to our shortcomings but there's no need to rub it in, you
know. (We can get along quite well without
your reminding us of them.)
LATEST OFFERS
The latest amazing *new offer unparalleled in publishing history, it appears, will
enable me to send only five dollars to obtain
—no, not 24—25 issues of the digest, at a
total saving of $1.25. But I'm not going to be
fooled this time. I'm not going to place myself and the neighbourhood postman at the
mercies of the Digest again, even if it does
cost me $1.25. It will be worth it just to
know that I need never again tremble as I
open each letter, hoping that it might be a
bill or something, but please, not frfSm the
Reader's Digest Association, Pleasantville,
New York.
Meanwhile, when I want to glance over
the best reading in the country, there's always my favorite newstand.

As soon as Mr. Dyke finds a couple
of fellows ready to take over a corner
in the south basement of Brock Hall,
he is willing to partition off part of
the cloakroom, provide a special
shoeshine chair plus the equipment
needed for the venture. What he
wants are two ambitious young men
with a bit of patience, because it
will take a short time to build up a
worthwhile business.
But don't let this last statement
dishearten you. Beside shining shoes,
the persons operating this concession

46 61 Esplen Cracks Divot Mark
As UBC Golf Tourney Away
UBC's long-standing golf record went by the boards Saturday when unpredictable Bob Esplen surprised the experts
with a three-under-par 68.
Esplen was one of 73 student golfers who turned out last
weekend as the qualifying round of the fifteenth annual UBC
golf tournament got away to a successful start.
Although his play last year was not ^
steady   enough   to   win   him   a   spot
on   the   Varsity   golf   team,   Esplen
seems to have ironed out his troubles
during the summer  and now ranks
as the man to beat in this tourney.
The only other man in the field to
beat par was Point Grey's Doug
Bajus. The six foot, four inch power
man had a good chance to catch
Esplen but weakened in the home
stretch to card a smooth 70—one under
pat.
Bajus, an extremely steady and experienced competitive golfer, has the
benefit of a good draw and will
certainly be a finalist if he can get
by Bob Plommer, the defending
champion.
Golf Club president, Dick Hanley,
was third in the scoring with a 75—
one stroke ahead of Plommer, who
posted a 76. Others to come out on
the right side of 80 were Russ Latham,
78; Ormie Hall, 78; Dave Dale, 79.
Eight other divoters with scores
ranging to 83 complete the championship flight and the first round losers
in that section will go automatically
into the first flight.
The 57 remaining competitors are
ranged in four further flights which
—with the exception of the fourth-
will be played on handicap.
Six days are allowed for each round
of matches. Finals will be played the
last week in October and the big
prize-giving on November fourth. All
student information is posted on the
quad notice board.
In view of the fact that there are
only two women competitors, Irene
Anderson and Helen Best, they have
been drawn with the men.
Pucksters Start
Play October 29
Ice Hockey has once more reared
its head on the UBC campus with the
Varsity stickmen again represented
in the Pacific Coast Intermediate
League.
FREDERICKSON   AGAIN   COACH
Varsity, who placed fourth in the
League last year, will be coached
again by Frank Fredrickson, ev-Na-
tional Hockey League star. Frank,
rated with such greats as "Cyclone"
Taylor and "Tiny" Thompson, played
for ten years with the Montreal Canadians and Detroit Red Wings.
League play gets under way October 29 with games being played
Saturday night at Nanaimo, Sunday
afternoon at New Westminster, with
a double bill at the Forum on Wednesday night. Practice time has not
yet been decided upon.
President Terry Nelford wishes to
remind all potential players that they
must have a medical examination
before they may play.
BLEACHERS
FORCE MAD
TO EXPEND
The new bleachers on the east side
of the stadium forced the MAD to
crawl out on the shaky limb of high
finance.
The bleachers described by Dave
Comparelli as weather-proof, draft-
proof, and extremely comfortable (no
proof), were built at a cost of $8600.
Owed by the MAD to the AMS, the
outstanding $8000. will be amortized
at the rate of $2000. per year, to be
paid at the beginning of each year
on the current year's budget.
Any surplus coin In the MAD coffers at the end of the year will be
turned Into the AMS general fund
used for improvement of Athletic
equipment.
AND THE CROWDS ROAR—Caught in a characteristic motion, the flashy sextette above
parades in front of the main stadium grandstand at the initial gridiron contest last Saturday.
Seen in the background are the crammed bleachers. Stepping from left to right are Lois
Whimster, Kay Ladd, Gloria Newell, Phyllis Johnston, June Little, and Sara-Lee Tidball.

Varsity Bops UBC
As Bullen Flashy
Varsity defeated UBC 3-1 in a preseason grass hockey game on Saturday.
Both teams swung into an amazingly fast pace for so early in the
season and the shots on goal were
hard and accurate.
Brilliant but grueling play was the
order of the day. Veteran Les Bullen drove in the first goal for the
V-men to culminate a field-length
passing  attack   in  the  first half.
In the same period Dick Goss
shoved through to make it 3-0 UBC
opened up then but their infield passing attack was continually smashed
by smart defensive work on the part
of the Varsity fullback.
In the second canto, Gus Decoque
slashed in UBC's first goal to s-poil
goalie Nick Herrick's chances for a
shutout. However, Varsity came back
again to cinch the game when Les
Bullen drummed in the final goal of
the game.
This year promises to be a great
one for grass hockey with the entrance from the university of a third
team. League play will expand to
two divisions of four teams in each.
Next Saturday the full schedule of
games will get under way.

MAD PERSONALITIES
By ROY HUISH
The Men's Athletic Directorate has a mighty big voice in
campus affairs and so the Ubyssey chooses to honor—or dishonor—take your choice— the MAD with a thumb-nail sketch
on each of its members and thus give you dear reader a little
dope on what the MAD men did before they landed where
they landed, wherever that is—if you follow me.
The MAD has 14 positions—two of which are in absentia --
that is, not filled at present—The Chairman and Treasurer arc
elected by the MAA. Sports Editor and P.E. Director are
automatic members—the others are appointed.
They meet at least once a week and do a tremendous
amount of work in the field of athletics. They may be MAD
personalities but they are not mad personalities—on the contrary, they are normal, hard working individuals with the
common interest of seeing their Alma Mater unsurpassed by
any on the continent and are fully deserving of any publicity
they receive.
CHAIRMAN—DAVE COMPARELLI ... 2nd year law
student elected MAA president (making him automatically
chairman of the MAD, and if the reader can digest said fact it
will make the "Smiling Irishman" very happy for apparently
those cognizant of said fact for man elite circle indeed);—graduate of Templeton and Britannia High Schools—last year, MAD
treasurer—year before Senior Manager of Soccer—dabbled in
all sorts of high school sports.

the fullback spot.
SENIOR BASKETBALL MANAGER—DICK PENN . .
3rd year Physical Ed—graduated Magee—breezes through social whirl as "Lump-Lump"—manager of the casaba "Birds"
for last two years—last year on American Football squad and
president of P.E. class.
SENIOR SOCCER MANAGER—BOB WILSON ... (no
relation to Stew)—4th year Commerce President—graduate of
Richmond—manages concessions for basketball and football
games—also all AMS sponsored Dances—played three years on
Varsity Soccer eleven (goalie and winger)—Fraser Valley Sr.
Boys' Track Champ for Richmond in 1941.

captain Varsity cricketers this summer and '46-'47 season.
PHYSICAL EDUCATION DIRECTOR—BOB OSBORNE
. . , UBC Grad—former MAA prexy ('33)—champion track

MAD FACULTY REPRESENTATIVE—DR. FRANK

These girls have given freely of
their time to practice twirling and
throwing their gleaming silver batons in the air (as well as some other
noteworthy motions). They have appeared at pep-meets, gym-fund rallies, and at numerous games for the
pleasure of the students.
Now it appears that their efforts may
go unheeded and unrewarded by the
student body.
TRANSPORTATION
Now then, what we need is transportation to and from Bellingham on
Saturday, October 11, for seven lovely
majorettes; their trainer, a man; and
a chaperone. There are nine people
all together (for the benefit of those
of you still in Math 100).
Surely, men, from a university of
over 9000 there will be found sufficient red-blooded Canadian boys—to
drive them down to Bellingham.
FREE GAS
The AMS is so willing that the
girls go down with the team that
they will pay for the gas used in the
trip  by  the obliging drivers.
Just think of it, a free return trip
to Bellingham, Washington, for merely taking an extra passenger, a girl
or so, along with you. A hardship,
maybe? >
MISS NO LECTURES
Students going to the game will
miss no lectures because it is a night
game. There will be no great sacrifice on the part of anyone making
the 50 mile jaunt, and you might
just be lucky enough to view a UBC
grid victory.
Now if you are willing to take one
or two of the girls in your car, just
drop into the Mamook office in the
south basement of the Brock Hall
and leave them your name and address.
Don't forget to tell them why' you
are leaving it though. Silly just to
hand them your name and address
and  walk  out,

VOC Makes
Fall Climb
Saturday
A strenuous weekend is in store for
150 members and prospective members of the Varsity Outdoor Club.
They plan to spend their Thanksgiving holiday scaling the peak of
Mt. Brunswick, which towers above
the waters of Howe Sound.
This year's fall climb takes the club
back to the territory in which last
year's successful struggle to the peak
of the West Lion was staged, for
Brunswick is the second peak north
of the well-knon twins.
The pack-laden mob will disembark at Porteau on Saturday afternoon will find the camp already laid
out by an advance party of old members, who will go in Friday night.
They will be scared off to an early
bed by dire tales of the trials of the
day to come, and will be glad they
were when they are routed out in
the dark before Sunday dawns. The
camp will probably be again in darkness when they return, for Mt.
Brunswick is not what one would
call a Sunday stroll by Porteau.
If VOC tradition is adhered to, the
tired climbers will stage an impromptu party in the evening, despite their
aching feet.
A chartered boat will return the
mountaineers to Vancouver on Monday.
Those intending to make the climb
ere reminded that the last day for
signing up is Thursday. A list of
necessary equipment will be found
on the Quad notice boord.
Bird-Grad Mellonmen Prep
For Homecoming Fracas
One of the highlights of
Homecoming Day on November 1 will be the annual basketball struggle between the current Thunderbirds and the
Grads, Thunderbird aces of
former years.
Ralph "Hunk" Henderson,
who will be in charge of the
Grads again this year, has lined
up a formidable array of melon tossers to throw in against
Bob Osborne's Varsity quintet.
Henderson and five of his
players performed with the
Meralomas last year, including
that well known Thunderbird
star of two seasons ago, Sandy
Robertson. Jack Pomfret, Ole
Bakken, Jimmy Bardsley and
Ivor Wynn were all with the
Meralomas.
Rann Matthison and Brad Matheson
played for New Westminster Adanacs.
Three members df the professional
Hornets will be out with the Grads,
Reg. Clarkson, Ritchie Nicol and
Gordie Sykes. Ron Weber and Harry
Franklin of last years Birds are the
most   recent   addition  to  the  Grads.
The Thunderbirds have come out
on top in the past except for the
period from 1938 to '40 when the
Grads showed decided supremacy.
The Birds took last years torrid
classic by a single basket, but this
year coach Henderson says "We'll
be out to win."
He added that most of the Grads
have been working out with their
respective teams, but will get together
for a few team practices and will be
in top shape when the big fracas
rolls around.

TORONTO DUMPS
ALBERTA 19-5
The University of Toronto Blues,
the first Eastern college grid team
ever to invade the West, defeated the
University of Alberta Golden Bears
19-5 in Edmonton on Wednesday
night. It was the second straight win
for the Toronto squad, who opened
their Western jaunt by trouncing the
University of Saskatchewan Huskies
05-0.
Meanwhile on the UBC campus,
rumors are still flying regarding a
New Years Day "Bowl" game at the
Stadium. It is not known at present
whether the Blues will be here or
whether a top flight American club
will be brought up for the occasion.
But in any case local fans can be assured of some top grid entertainment.
