Students In, Union Out;
UBC Draws Pickets' Ire
Striking members of the Building Service Employees Union
(AFL) charged Thursday that four University students were
being used as "scabs" in the picketed Stock Exchange Building,
475 Howe Street.
Pete Canavan, business agent of the union, lodged the protest with AMS President Grant Livingstone, Van Perry, public
relations director for UBC, and Maj. John McLean, director
of the campus employment bureau.
Workers Seek Council Action
He asked Livingstone to seek a stand on the matter from
Students Council, which meets next Monday night.
Canavan said four students had been hired as sweepers
Wednesday night and that two students had been running elevators in the 11-storey office building on Thursday- Others had
returned to sweep Thursday night, he said.
Seventeen members of the union have struck in the building in support of their higher wage demands.
Canavan quoted Maj. McLean as saying that none of the
students had been sent to the strike-bound building through tha
campus placement service.
Students May Face Union Ban
Conducts . . .
One student working in the building
had left the job when he found
regular employees were on strike,
Canavan said. Canavan said the student had been phoned at home and
offered the job, but did not know
the source of the phone call.
As a result of the reported use of
students in the building, the Building
Service workers may seek to have
UBC students "banned" from all jobs
under ther jurisdiction, Canavan said.
In the past year, he pointed out,
about 20 UBC students an others on
DVA educational allowances had been
placed in part time employment by
the union.
But the union felt that this was
"small thanks" and had received a
"good response" from other unions
on the suggestion that students might
be barred from union plants, he said.
The union felt, Canavan declared,
that student-veterans should be assisted by the trade union movement,
but that an attitude of "strike-breaking" could not be allowed.

NFCUS, to which he was elected
president at the national conference
in Toronto last Christmas, is an association of all Canadian university
students and has "fostered such projects as exchange scholarships, employment, national debating, and has
attempted to sponsor a general exchange of student interests throughout  Canada."
A local committee under the NFCUS
was reorganized this fall, and will
conduct Sauve's visit to the campus.
All student functions and meetings
have been cancelled by the AMS to
permit a full attendance at the auditorium gathering at 12:30 p.m.
Morse Stresses
Public Opinion
The need for creating an informed public opinion on international affairs among UBC
students was stressed by Eric
W. Morse in a press conference
Morse praised UBC's International
Relations Club as a group of "specil-
ists" in international affairs. "Bpt",
he said, "there is an apathy on the
part of the average student, and, indeed, of the average Canadian, who
fails to identify himeslf personally
with world affairs. We must overcome.-
this apathy and foster the growth o£
a sane, enlightened public opinion as
insurance against a crisis."
The UNA plans to sponsor public
meetings, film shows and ''mock assemblies" to further it aims. Emphasis will be placed on current
workings of the United Nations rather
than on its organization, through discussions of "current topic while
they're hot."
Morse spoke of the growing interest
in international affairs among students in Canada. He attributed this
interest partly to the large number
of student veterans who having had
first hand experience of war now
-interested in . the maintenance of

Creative Art
by Eva Holm
First Studio Exhibition Of

and Arthur M. Peers, British Columbia
artists and advocates of the "creative"
school.    The   exhibition   will   be   on
show for two weeks.
Mrs. Willis has always been particularly concjemed with arousing
interest in art amongst students.
She feels that "if the student has
access to more exhibitions by artists
who paint in a "creative" manner
their understanding of such artists
and their work would be greater."
Mrs. Willis also expressed the hope
that those interested in seeing the
display would attend the showing on
Tuesday, its opening night, since she
will be on hand to answer any questions about the exhibit.
Versatility in technique and mediums will be illustrated by a wide and
colorful variety of paintings.
Mrs. Willis has successfully presented two "sidewalk shows" on the
campus in two previous years.
Peers is a post-graduate student
and an assistant lab instructor at

Campus 'Political' Group
Beats Council Deadline"
UBC's Communist Forum   became   the   first   'political1
organization on the campus to follow AMS orders in adopting
\ party names Thursday when members changed their title to
the "UBC Labor-Progressive Party Club."
The change was carried out under <$ ■

nized party names, or face suspension
of AMS grants.
The Communist group is the first
to comply, although deadline for the
change is the Council meeting Monday night.
Members of the Student Socialist
Forum have indicated, meanwhile,
that they will apply to maintain their
present status rather than adopt a
CCF party name.
Communist Forum executives pointed out that "membership in the LLP
club does not obligate any member
to participate in LPP campaigns ir
join the LPP itself."
Constitution of the new club says
its purpose shall be "the study of
dialetic materialism, the philosophy
and economics of Marxism and policies and platform of the Laboo Progressive Party."
Study groups are to be formed to
pursue the study.
Former president of the group, Ike
Shulman, resigned at the Thursday
meeting due to pressure of work and
was succeeded by Norm Littlewood.
Other members of the executive
elected were Harry Rankin, vice-
president; George Stewart, secretary;
and Archie Kaario and Jack Kir-
kaldy, members of the executive.
Littlewood told members a meeting
called earlier by the organization for
Arts 100 had been cancelled "without
previous notification' by the AMS.
Any possible discrimination by the
AMS would be "protested" by the
group, he said.
Tom McEwen, editor of the Pacific
Tribune, is scheduled as next speaker
for the group.
Hillel Groups
Plan Exchange
Exchange activities will take place
between the Hillel Foundation at
UBC Hillel Foundation of the
University of Washington in Vancouver this weekend.
The two groups will attend religious services and hear a cultural
program at the Jewish Community
Centre, 11th and Oak, at 8 tonight
On Saturday evening at 9 a formal
dance is to be held in honor of the
visitors at Stanley Park pavilion.
Students and their guests return te
the Community Centre again on Sunday at noon for a luncheon and mixer
t'o complete the weekend visit.
UBC Hillel members plan a return
visit to Seattle in November.
UBC Building Occupied
As Completion Nears
Canada's newest physics building opened its doors to
lecture classes last week, although UBC's $750,000 structure
yet remains with much work to be done on both the interior
and exterior. ®
However, the entire upper floor and
enough of the lower floor are completed   to   accomodate   most   of   the
physics students.
While the architectural lines of the
structure differ from those of the
nearby Library and Science buildings,
its facade is being lined with granite
masonary in keeping with that of the
two earlier structures.
On the main floor are three large,
amphitheatre-style lecture rooms with
a seating capacity of 550. They are
finished in cream and pale green with
mottled green linoleum on the floors
and a soundproof ceiling spaced with
sunken lights.
Also on this main floor there are
six physics labs and four research
labs still under construction. Completing the tour of the main floor
one finds a mechanical shop, wood
shop, electrical shop and an apparatus
The upper floors are well filled with
additional labs, standard classrooms,
finished in the same cream and green
color combination, a spacious library
and a block of instructor's offices.
By   far  the   most  interesting  floor
of the new building is the basement
section which at present, is not in
operation. Here will be housed the
proposed cyclotron which will make
UBC one of the few atomic research
centres in Canada.
The remaining part of the basement will contain three research labs,
an X-ray lab, a high tension lab, an
optics lab, a transformer vault and
dark room with a suspended ceiling.
High atop the extensive roof there
is located a "light well" which will
provide   maximum   lighting   to   the
rooms in the top story.
Acrid with the smell of fresh paint
and ringing with the sound of workmen's tools, the building is still far
from complete but the recent opening
of some of its classrooms and labs
indicate that the biggest part of the
job is done.
The magnitude of the project with
its plans for atomic research are consistent with the policy of making
UBC one of North America's "big-
time" universities.
Forum Condemns
B.C. Labor Laws
Parliamentary Forum yesterday delivered a thumping "no" to a resolution that the present trend in labar
legislation was desirable.
Supporting the resolution as Prime
Minister was Jim Argue who submitted that Communists were organs-
zing strikes in order to benefit their
plants rather than society.
He claimed legislation such as the
Taft-Hartley Bill was aimed at correcting the abuses that Labor has
perpetrated and to cut down unnecessary strikes in order to rebuild
a sick and war torn world.
Speaking for the opposition wat
Murray Bryce who declared that Bill
39 was aimed at thwarting the attempts of certain seasonal workers
to form a union because of the long
process involved.
He also contended that recent
strikes are not designed to promote
gains for labor but merely to enable
them to retain their rights.
1,000 Volunteer
Donors Wanted
Nearly 2000 students have signed
with the Blood Donors Clinic, but
1000 additioneil volunteers are urgently needed, according to Rosemary
Hodgins, chairman of the Undergraduate Societies Committee.
It is still not too late to volunteer
for the drive. Students who wish to
give a pint of blood may sign up at
the clinic on the lower Mall.

Judging from the volume of classified
advertisements appearing regularly in the
Daily Ubyssey and from the frequent reports
from the local provincial police, a rash of
petty thievery has once again broken out on
the campus.
"This is not unusual since it happens every
year, nor does it indicate much about the
moriils df the average student. There is
bound to be a certain number of people prone
to theft in any group as large as this one.
Text books represent a large portion of
the mysteriously misplaced property, due,
probably, to the fact that many students unable to obtain the required texts at the book
store have adopted more vigorous methods
of filling their requirements.
To this, we heartily recommend that all
students ensure that they have their names
clearly  written  in  their  books  and  avoid
leaving them lying around.
Several attempts have been made to
enter and to steal cars parked on the campus.
To our knowledge none have been successful.
Five bicycles and one motorcycle have
strayed from the campus parking areas since
the term began, and yesterday a ring valued
at $275 was reported removed from the
science building.
The only possible means of combatting
this outbreak of pilfering is to report suspicious losses immediately they are discovered
to the proper authorities.
The wisest course of action is to report
your loss or theft to the AMS office. There, a
classified ad will be inserted in the Daily
Ubyssey and suitable action will be taken.

The studen^ body certainly did not
lose its self respect in Bellingham as
JW's nauseous editorial in Tuesday's
editorial seemed to indicate.
Majority of the fans were proud,
as I was, of the enthusiasm of the
Blue and Gold rooters. This, in spite
of the fact that the 'Birds were totally
outclassed and had no business playing the Vikings.
The cheerleaders were not Ignored.
They were not needed. Cheering was
quite spontaneous. All of the Bellingham citizens that I spoke to were
favorably impressed by the UBC cheer
It was completely without the aid
of the Mamooks that the Blue and
Gold supporters broke into "Oh
Canad," at a time when JW suggests
that the supporters were sitting on
their faces,
The Mamooks should be congratulated for their work in making the
trip and the parade possible.
It certainly wasn't fair to blame the
students as a whole for any irregularities that might have occurred on
the biggest celebration in UBC's

Invasion Fan
The Daily Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
As one of the hundreds of UBC
students who enjoyed the trip to
Bellingham during the Thanksgiving
weekend, I should like to express my
appreciation to those who planned
and organized the invasion.
Jerry McDonald, Lome Glendening,
the University Band and the Mamooks deserve a great deal of credit
for arranging this event which did so
much to promote University spirit
and goodwill among the American
Student Body.
Gus Worthington and the Seaforth
Pipe Band which impressed the people of Washington with their display
at Battersby Field called forth such
comments as that of James Vaughn
Lundgren, University of Western
Washington student, who declared
that the occasion was "the best display of University spirit that I have
ever seen!"
More organized support of this
nature would provide increased incentive for our University Athletes
—let's continue to give them this
enthusiastic encouragement!
Very truly yours,

The members of the Student Socialist Forum are not "disavowing the
CCF" as the press reports indicate.
They simply wish to retain the name
under which their club has risen to
popularity because that name honestly and clearly states the political philosophy in which they are   interested.
The fact that the club has brought
to the campus five prominent CCF
parliamentarians and no speaker from
any other Canadian party suggests
that its members do favor the CCF
as the party of their choice. At the
same time, the students do not feel
it is right to adopt the CCF name,
as the Students Council demands, in
view of the fact that the rules of the
student body do not permit a student
club to affiliate with a party and
share in making its program.
The Socialist Forum exists to present socialist speakers so students
may be well informed on that viewpoint. Many of us are CCF members,
but others are not ready to take up
membership in any party. We do not
feel it is fair of the Students Council to say that all who are interest-
eel in studying the socialist or any
otiir- viewpoint must decide here and
now their political allegiance.

Campus Call
by Jack McCaugherty
Dear Sir:
I have been an inmate of this good
institution only two weeks but have
followed with increasing interest tho
"friendly" interfaculty rivalry. No*,
I am a firm believer in such existences, but may I venture to advance
an opinion on the letter which appeared in this column a few days ago
under the sponsorship of two friendly
My feelings were a little mixed
when I read therein such remarks as
this: "We're not kicking about the
science course for we'll have something when we're finished." I thought
of chucking my arts course plus a
hopeful career of keeping the masses
informed, but then again I remembered that history notes the success of a
few artsmen, and somehow I might
survive in an overwhelming sea of
So, with NO malice in my mind, I
decided to overlook the obviously
biased context signed by those two
cheerful sciencemen. Ok, campus,
let's have a goodly measure of inter-
rivalry and fun, but likewise, let's
draw the line on incrimination and
ruthless remarks.
To quote that great scholar and
former professor of Oxford and Cambridge, A. E. Houseman (Eng. 100
note): "There is no rivalry between
the studies of Arts, Law and Science;
but only the rivalry of fellow-soldiers in striving; which can most victoriously achieve the common end of
all, to set back the frontier of darkness." Unquote. Let's think on this
just a little, eh fellows?

Offenders Beware
by Charles Marshall
UBC Constables Have Busy Time
Student speedsters, beware! The long
arm of the law is reaching for you.
Since lectures began just four
weeks ago, UBC's edition of the proverbial long arm has stretched forth
to pick up more than 37 traffic offenders within the university grounds.
This number, according to Constable J. Dowling, officer in charge
of Varsity's provincial division, is almost twice as large as any similar
time in any previous year.
The reason for the present wave
of traffic violations, he feels, is the
tremendous influx of cars onto the
campus which further congests tlie
already overcrowded roads and parking lots.
Such conditions, Constable Dowling states, only make it more imperative that student drivers use common
sense when going to and from lectures.
Heading the list of offenders are
the John Cobbs of the campus who
break the 30 mile an hour speed
limit on all university traffic lanes.
Other popular violations are rushing
through school zones and not producing a driver's licence when required.
Students guilty of such offenses are
liable to receive fines up to $900 and
have their licenses revoked, depending on the circumstances.
As an added convenience to summoned drivers, Constable Dowling
has procured the service of a magistrate who holds court at the UBC
police office during certain days of
the week.
Previously students had to go all
the  way   down   town   to   pay   their
To help maintain this year's accident free record and to insure themselves against arrest, Constable Dowling has asked students to observe
the following rules:
1. Carry driver's licence at all times.
2. All motor bike operators must
have a driver's licence.
3. All cars other than those of
tourists must be registered and
licenced for the province of British
4. No hitch-hiking must be done on
any of the university thoroughfares
since it congests the already heavy
An Important meeting of all
reporters will be held In the Daily
Ubyssey offices today at 2:30 p.m.
Be Diere!
5. Stay off University Boulevards
as much as possible. Marine Drive
should be open again within about
two weeks and an announcement will
appear in the Ubyssey.
On the good side of the student
ledger this year is the fact that there
have been no serious accidents, no
charges of drunken driving and no
cases of serious overloading.
"UBC drivers are no worse than
those anywhere else", Constable Dowling said, "and we certainly realize
the difficulties that arise when 1500
cars try to operate in this small space.
All we want is the cooperation of
"Above all", he continued, "I don't
want anybody to think that we like
making arrests, some of them in
triplicate. That's no more fun for us
than it is for the offender".

Thunderbirds, Willamette
Tangle In Salem Saturday
UBC's footballing Thunderbirds face what will probacy
e their toughest opposition of the season, Saturday, when
they take on the Willamette Bearcats in Salem, Oregon.
PNC champions last year, the Bear- *>
cats,   are   reported   to   be   an   even
more powerful organization this sea
son. To date this year they have
two victories to their credit and no
In their first 1947 contest the Bearcats piled up a 56-0 score against
College of Pacific. And last Saturday
they rolled over College of Idaho,
But the fact that the 'Birds were
severely trounced by College of Idaho
can scarcely be taken as an indication of what will happen Saturday.
The Kabatmen have played two more
games since they met Idaho, and are
just the team that could upset Willamette.
The Thunderbirds were the only
club to score more than one touchdown against the Bearcats in last
year's conference schedule, the locals
going under 26-13 in the season
From Johnny Owen, Thunderbird
trainer, comes encouraging news regarding 'Bird injuries. According to
Turfmen Meet In
Exhibition Tilts
Saturday, is official opening day
for the men's grass-hockey league
this year. Four games will be played—
two divisions of teams being entered.
In first division play, Varsity A
meets Vancouver at Connaught Park.
Exhibition games this year showed
|)oth teams to be powerful and
sparked by many of last year's outstanding players.
UBC, Varsity's campus rival, will
clash with the East India team at
Brockton Point. There's great potential power in the ranks of the UBC
team which should be displayed in
full against the fighting India crew.
Owen, Herb Capozzi, George Sainas,
Dmitri Goloubef, John Gray, Jack
Armour, and possibly Don Nesbit
will be in shape for Saturday's tilt.
This leaves only Bill Sainas and
Fred French on the injured players
list and means that in the manpower
department at least, the 'Birds will
be up to par.
Another big point in UBC's favor is
the fact that the contest will be
played in the afternoon. At night, the
'Birds don't seem to click, but in the
afternoon, as anyone who witnessed
the Logger contest will verify, the
locals find the going a lot easier.
Varsity Soccer
Meets Pulp Men
Varsity soccer squads have a busy
weekend ahead of them, "Varsity"
travelling to Powell River for a Sunday match and UBC opposing South
Burnaby Legion at Oppenheimer
Park, Saturday. Tomorrow's match
starts at 3 p.m.
The Varsity squad leaves at 11-. 45
Saturday night and arrives back in
Vancouver at 6:00 Monday morning.
Revamped entirely with the emphasis placed on speed, the UBC gang
should put on one of the best fights
yet. Former R.A.F. and Victoria ace
Ted Woodruff has taken over one of
the fullback slots and Gil Blair is
back in goal after a brief interlude
with Varsity.
Although Varsity and UBC are
playing strong squads over the weekend, Coach McGill is very hopeful.
Both teams are taking a long time
hitting their stride but McGill is not
worried. Last year Varsity played
five weeks before they won a game,
going on from there to win the

Scenes Of Weekend Rugger
English rugger comes back lo the campus for UBC's first
home game of the season tomorrow afternoon. Vancouver
Rowing Club will be kicking off against the Blue and Gold
senior rugby squad at 2:30- Other feature game of the weekend
is slated for Brockton Bowl where the champion Varsity
fifteen runs into the undefeated powerhouse of Meraloma's.
Both Blue and Gold squads, unde-<$-
feated   in   their   opening  games   last
week, are expected to continue their
win tactics which landed the Varsity
crew at the top of the heap in last
year's league.
Al Laithwaite and Roy Haines,
mentors for the students, have been
working their charges into shape
for over a month and are rapidly
driving them into top condition.
Roughest game of the day will undoubtedly be the 'Loma versus Varsity duel, with Varsity going into the
fray as slight favorites. 'Lomas are
rated as the best downtown team
of the year and gave UBC plenty of
trouble last Saturday when the two
squads struggled to a 3-3 tie.
The university upper field will be
the scene of a free game when UBC,
still rather an unknown quantity,
tackles Rowing Club reputed to have
increased power for their 1947-48
squad. Game time is 2:30.
Plans are under way to have the
University of California Rugby team
invade the UBC campus between the
14th and 21st of February. Arrangements are going ahead to have Thunderbirds fly to the sunny state in the
second week of March.
Rumors of an exhibition tilt between UBC and a travelling New Zealand fifteen have been circulating for
some weeks but it is generally considered that such a game would be
impractical. The Thunderbird schedule already calls for too many games
at the time of the down under team's
slated visit.

Since no intermediate campus team
will be allowed to compete in the
Vancouver city leagues this year,
UBC has prepared a "house system"
of its own.
This will enable boys to play and
practise basketball on the campus. No
time will be wasted travelling to and
from games.
According to coach Bob Osborne,
this system will give the coaches an
opportunity to watch for talent, to
train certain players, and to prepare
them for advancement to the Thunderbirds or the Chiefs in the following year.
Teams 1, 2, 3.
Team 4.
Monday nights from seven on.
