 $500,000 MEMORIAL GYM

THIS FOR UBC—An artist's conception
of the proposed $500,000 War Memorial
Gymnasium featuring a swimming pool, two
basketball courts, wrestling and boxing
rooms, a special women's gymnasium, arch-
Iery and rifle ranges, and an auditorium with
_ a proposed seating capacity of 5,000, looks
like an athlete's dream. The building, which
will become an actuality when the quota is
reached, will commemorate BC's war dead
in a "Hall of Heroes" in which the names of
all the University of British Columbia
service graduates will be inscribed.
The proposed location of the structure is
situated directly behind Brock Hall. This
will place it conveniently close to the
Stadium and to the playing fields. It is
tentatively arranged to be of a permanent,
class A construction with granite facing.
The campaign for its financing will be
promoted   throughout  the  whole  of  the
province by seven student committees. A
comprehensive publicity hoop-up has been
arranged with newspapers and advertising
agents in every city and town to insure a
full public recognition of the drive. The
committees will conduct an extensive canvas
of the Alumni, as well as the various
business firms and organizations.

Joint Student and Alumni
Campaign To Build 'Hall
Of Heroes' Starts To-day
A $500,000 WAR MEMORIAL GYMNASIUM for the University of British Columbia
will be the objective of a strenuous campaign launched today by a joint student-alumni
committee of the university.
Complete details of the project and thecampaign were released today by Allan Ainsworth, chairman of the University War Memorial Committee and president of the Alma
Mater Society. He gave official confirmation that the memorial would take the form of
a gymnasium.
The province-wide project, which has received the strong approval of the Board of
Governors, will be directed to students, alumni, and every British Columbia resident, who
will be petitioned for contributions by seven central committees.
Student Objective is $100,000
The student committee has tentatively pledged the student body to raise $100,000.
Initial stages of the campaign will feature student drives on the campus, personal
contact by committee members with downtown business firms, brief informal talks at club
luncheons by student campaigners, and letter contacts to all University of British Columbia /
alumni.

TONY SCOTT
Greer Statement
Explained Move
IN WITHDRAWING from the
presidential race Thursday evening, Tony Greer, prcnidcnt of tho
University Branch of thc Canadian
Legion, made the following statement to the Ubyssey:
"After a great deal of consideration, I wish to withdraw, belated
though it may be, my nomination
for the presidency of the Alma
Mater Society.
"I do not willingly take this step
for I would appreciate greatly the
opportunity to lead the students of
my university for the next year,
one which I feel will be a very important one in our history.
ADDITIONAL YEAR
"Unfortunately my election as
president would mean an additional year at the university for me,
as it would necessitate me enrolling
in fourth year arts instead of first
ycar law as I had planned.
"This is indeed an expensive
price to pay when I can be of
service to UBC in my present
position as head of tho University
Canadian Legion, and can later
contest for presidency of the Alma
Mater Society in my last year of
law. My value to the students will
be thus increased by two extra
years on the campus.
DELIBERATION
"I must apologize for not withdrawing sooner; the nomination
was made without my knowledge
and I hesitated to make a definite
statement until such time as I had
duly deliberated the situation.
"In closing may I express my
thanks for the nomination and for
tho goodwill shown to me by so
many since its announcement in
The Ubyssey."
Students Building Drives
Successful Since Fairview
ALUMNI of tho University of British Columbia all over
the world will be filled with nostalgia and a certain amount
of sympathy for undergraduates when they read of the
campaign for the $500,000 War Memorial Gymnasium which
starts today.
The history of the University, of
British Columbia is the history of
student enthusiasm and achievement.
UNIVERSALLY APPROVED
Student campaigns brought the
university site from the old Fair-
view Shacks to Point Grey, considered by many to be the most
beautiful situation of any Canadian
university.
Student campaigns brought us thc
Stadium, the present Gymnasium,
playing fields and the Brock Memorial Hall.
The first UBC student campaign
began in 1922 with students and
faculty members addressing civic
organizations, interviewing prominent citizens and collecting signatures on petitions.
PUBUCITY SOARS
A "Varsity Week" was proposed
during which the entire student
body would make a pilgrimage to
Point Grey as a move for more
press publicity.
Wearing the Blue and Gold of
UBC, over 1100 students, 35 floats
and three bands set out for the
new campus.
Thc story of the famed "trek"
from Fairview is a familiar ono to
every srtudent who has participated
in the annual Cairn Ceremony.
"We ain't no government's darling, we're as poor as can bo," was
the dominant tone of the publicity
campaign.
EPIDEMIC
President L. S. Klinck congratulated students on their campaign,
saying, "Their enthusiasm is con-

T To Support
Hall Of Heroes
FULL SUPPORT of the University War Memorial Gymnasium
Campaign has been voiced Dy Roy
Holmes, physical education director
for the YMCA in British
Columbia.
"This memorial drive will supplement all other community
centra war memorial drives
throughout the province, because
leaders must be supplied for thesa
projects,"  he  said.
Declaring that the Memorial
Gymnasium would be a practical
as well as fitting tribute to B.C.
service men, Holmes stated that
the gymnasium would ensure
physical education leaders for the
province, would be a "true investment in the future health of
British Columbia" as well as a
war memorial.
A three-week ooriod of student
activity including: a marahton
inter-faculty "mile of quarters"
race from the Administration
building to the present Gymnasium
to start Tuesday; a perforated
cardboard sheet to be filled with
quarters by periodic distribution
to classrooms and campus,organizations; milk bottles inscribed
with "Build the Gym" slogans;
co-eds asked to sell kisses; u
Publications Board-Council basketball game; and the Jokers
Club's tentative plans for a
carnival.
A "Visitors Day" to be held
"sometime? nenr tho end of Fibru-
OVEk $113 has already been
subscribed on the campus by students to ths War Memorial Gymnasium fund. One hundred dollars has been contributed by the
Inter-fraternity Council.
One individual donation has
been given by a student anxious
to start off the campaign.
It's your university. Build the
gymnasium.
ary" has been approved by the
Board of Governors. An invitation will be extended to people in
Vancouver and the Lower Mainland to "come out and see university students at work." No displays
are being planned for the event.
MOST AMBITIOUS
Allan Ainsworth, committee
chairman, stated Friday that "the
campaign is tho most ambitious
ever launched by the students and
the alumni of the university."
"It was the feeling of thc committee that the building should be
dedicated to 'British Columbia's
youth who served in thc two world
wars' and also satisfying a pressing
need at the university," stated
Ainsworth.
Selection of a Gymnasium came
after careful consideration by tho
committee. An extension to the
Brock Memorial Building and
students' residences were also
considered.
NOT IN OTHER GRANT
"No adequate provision has been
HIGHLIGHTS

A MILE OF QUARTERS-Inter-

thc administration building to the
old gymnasium. Tho Student Committee planning the "Marathon"
has stipulated that students must
place quarters along thc designated
"course." Tho "rcady-sct-go" date

next week.
COED KISS SALES-Cocds will
be asked to sell "kisses for the
gymnasium cause." Emphasis will
be on patriotism.
MILK BOTTLE FUND - Milk
bottles will dot the campus bearing
such labels as, "This bottle filled
with pennies, quarters, and dimes
will buy four basketballs for the
new gymnasium."
CARDBOARD CAMPAIGN -
Sheets of cardboard Indented with
small holes the size of a quarter
will be passed around among the
made in the recent five million
dollar university bulld'ng grant
for full physical education facilities, therefore the students and
alumni of the university decided
to take immediate steps toward
the erection of an urgently needed
Gymnasium," declared Lieut.-Col.
W. T. Brown, President of the UBC
Alumni Association. Fifty thousand dollars had been allotcd for
physical education expansion.
British Columbia physical education organizations have already
shown signs of endorsing the
Gymnasium campaign, according
to Robert Osborne, director of
Physical Education at the university.
Among them aro Provincial
Recreation groups, YMCA, YWCA,
B.C. Teachers' Federation, the
B.C. Parent-Teacher's Association.
These   groups   in   thc   past   have
endorsed or submitted resolution*
demanding   immediate   establishment of a Department of Physical
Education.
LEADERS NEEDED
Statistics show that although
there should be approximately one
fully-trained physical education
teacher , for every 230 British
Columbia students there are less
than ten fully-qualified physical
education leaders througout the
province with degrees. There are
no Physical Education training facilities in the province.        . '
"Development of a faculty of
Physical Education Is impossible
when n Gymnasium built for 1500
and serving nearly 7.000 must be
used," Mr. Osborne stated. He
estimates that the present Gymnasium should only serve 600
students a week. Ventilation is
poor and locker space inadequate.
The enforced 13 hour-day upon
which the Gymnasium is forced
to operate is causing high depreciation on the building. Although a
small temporary gym in the
stadium is being utilized for fencing and archery classes and an
army hut is being converted for
recreational use, janitorial service
is almost impossible*in the gymnasium.
INTRAMURALS THWARTED
Stating that the average Pacific
Northwest college has more complete gymnasium facilities for an
enrollment of 600 than has the
University of British Columbia
with 7000, Mr. Osborne said that
"only one-third of the recreational
activities, such as intra-mural
basketball and volleyball pro-
Crams can be carried out." ,
Approximately 2,500 students
tre using the building per week
now and others arc shunted to the
stadium and downtown swimming
pools for the compulsoVy physical
training classes sponsored by the
National Physical Fitness program
ulonc.
This means tna' oniy one ha-f
the students at the university can
expect time in thc Gymnasium.
Over 3,000 of these are servicemen
who   "have   had   better   physical
(Continued on page 4) THE UBYSSEY, Saturday, February 2, 1946, Page 2
A Tradition Of Success
The University of British Columbia is still
a "baby." It was established in 1915 and
waa rrmllffl Iti Ilia four J''ulrvlovv fcliitt'hfl nom1
tho General Hospital grounds until, 1150
students then attending moved their university out to Point Grey literally stone by
stone.
These young people of the early tradition
who inaugurated the first tradition of students deciding what they wanted and then
setting out to achieve their ideals, were beset
by many problems. The British Columbia
public had not yet begun to think of the',
university as anything more than a useless
luxury. Financial support was also lacking.
At the turn of the decade Bhitish Columbia
showed a edcrease of 9 percent in educational expenditure side by side with an average
provincial increase of 30 percent in all other
Canadian provinces. The Alma Mater
Society, thought these pilgrims, was also
lacking in spirit.
"No Building; No Ideals*'
An editorial in the February edition of a
1922 Ubyssey laments, "the trouble is that
we have no shrines on which to focus our
emotions of college loyalty. We feel it is
no use to form associations about these
buildings that do not belong to us and do
not express the true ideals of a university.'
Other universities sell bonds for their
stadiu mor auditorium. We have no campus,
nor stadium, nor idols, but this is not the
tragedy. The tragedy is that we do not
dierct student effort toward these possessions. Even if we failed, it would show the
public we felt deeply oruthis matter."
But the campus newspaper was not alone
in believing that undergraduates could
forward their universitV by student initiative
and endeavor. Every individual student
felt that way and in 8 months had received
17,000 signatures throughout the province
of citizens petitioning for the immediate
and permanent establishment of the university at Point Grey.
They Got What They Wanted
The pioneer campaigners who organized
themselves very efficiently got what they
wanted. In November,. 1922, they held a
hectic "Varsity Week" of mass meetings,
and student pilgrimages through the' downtown Vancouver area and out to the
university. They optimistically sponsored
a Cairn dedication ceremony and dispatched
undergraduate envoys to Victoria. Both
the drive, "Varsity Week" and the occupation of the Fairview Shacks were culminated
successfully at the end of November when
the government voted $1,500,000 for the
immediate construction of buildings at Point
Grey, after the visit of the delegation.
A victorious corner stone ceremony was
held October 5, 1023, and the students
waited patiently until 1925, when they were
to see and use their permanent buildings.
Only one thing was worrying student
campaigners, who foresaw the need for
physical education and recreational facilities
on the campus. They wanted a gymnasium
and playing fields even in the midst of the
hurly burly of moving their university from
the Fairview Shacks, and started a sub-drive
in 1924 for construction of playing fields and
purchase of gymnasium equipment. They
also began to donate their own money. They
raised $8,500 and playing fields were
tentatively started, but the studen funds
were depleted.
Still Another Campaign
But the students began to look around
them at their university in 1926 and decided
that if one drive could take them from
Fairview to Point Grey, surely another
would bring them gymnasium and physical
education training facilities, which they felt
even then were necessary to their university, - and province.
So again they went to work and in 1929,
after several unsuccesful attempts, a bond
issue of $35,000 was floated by the Alma
Mater Society and the gymnasium was
opened in Homecoming week of that year.
The gymnasium, although small and with a
seating capacity of 1400, served to meet the
athletic needs of the 1500 students in 1929,
but was not even then large enough to
warrant the * establishment of a Physical
Education faculty.
Thu niiiiilutnlH wits otlll on utlilotlvx In JIKIO
when the students, who by this time took
student campaigns as a matter of course. A
stadium and development of the playing
fields was the next push and $10,000 of
undergraduate m.ney out of depression-
flattened pocketbooks was the pledge in
1930. Thirty thousand dollars was the goal.
The Faculty Association and the Board of
Governors themselves voted 5,800 dollars to
development of the playing field, but erection of the stadium was left entirely to the
undergraduates at that time. Again they
campaigned and were given the editorship
of a special edition of a downtown paper
one day to propel their drive.
Faculty Campaigns Too
Faculty support was strong, and an open
letter to the students by the late Dean Brock
published in the Ubyssey sent this message,-
"The Board of Governors has always been
anxious to see the university adequately
supplied with facilities for student physical
training and recreation. Since coming to our
own site it has been a matter of keen regret
that through no fault of their own they have '
been unable to secure funds for this purpose."
—Governoms and faculty are gratified to
find that the students of their own initiative,
undertaking to provide, first the gymnasium
and now the stadium, the two fundamental
units of this necessary equipment. For they
are as necessary in intellectual development
as lectures, laboratories, and study houra
It is a great waste of time and money to
give an expensive training to those who
will not have physical energy to accomplish
a lift's work."
Finally, after years of disappointment,
students, by canvassing personal subscriptions, by province-wide appeals, and by
delegations to the government, accomplished
their third project in tho summer of 1937.
Ae a tribute to Dean Reginald W. Brock,
former Dean of Applied Science, who was
killed in a plane crash in 1935, and who
interpreted the spirit and supported the aims
of tho student-campaigners so well, a fourth
drive for erection of a Brock Memorial
building was set into motion in 1936 near
the termination of the stadium drive. Again
the Alma Mater Society rolled up its sleeves
to reach its 30,000 dollar pinnacle, but the
concurrent stadium drive and threats of
decreased enrolment made the going very
difficult.
Help from the Board of Governors, who
authorized a 25,000 dollar university loan
to tho Alma Mater Society, additional alumni
and student contributions, and a large
80,000 dollar loan to be repaid by the .students finally opened the Brock Memorial
Building in 1941.
"The Biggest Of Al\"
But still uppermost in the minds of the
students from the days of 1914 to the present,
was the need for complete gymnasium
facilities. The classes of 1926-30 had done
their part for an enrolment of 1500 but to
the present time, when there are almost
7,000 would-be campaigners, there have been
no additions to the gymnasium.
The alumni of the university have left
their young undergraduate brothers and
sisters an inspiring heritage of student endeavor: tho people of British Columbia have,
by their generosity in tho past, loft a promise
of sympathy to the most ambitious cause
ever launched by students in this province.
Half a million dollars is a formidable aim.
The students and alumni, joint gymnasium
drive sponsors, are willing to sacrifice their
time and energy during the coming year, to
the erection of a War Memorial Gymnasium.
It is not necessary to emphasize the need
i of the gymnasium. Physical education and
recreational facilities are pitifully nonexistent at the university.
But it is necessary to emphasize the need
of cooperation of people throughout the
province to support the gymnasium campaign. Everyone is obliged to invest in the
future health of British Columbia.

MY AIM is a united campus.
We can continue as divided,
clashing groups, or pull together
as the eighth city of British Columbia, with enormous potential influence on its future.
As ono of tho ex-servicemen, I
rcnlize their immediate, grave,
special needs, and that the whole
student body must back them; as
n student on tho campus before
enlistment, I recognize that tho
balance of tho student body needs
equal consideration.
MY PLATFORM INCLUDES:
1. Special representation for veterans with council and tiie setting
up of joint committees on such
projects as housing, the permanent employment bureau, etc.
2. Development of the $100,000
per year Alma Mater as a long-
range business, guaranteeing continuity of sound management with
appointment of a permanent business director.
3. A fully-backed, comprehensive
sports program.
4. Expanded liaison with tho public and other Canadian universities.
5. Full representation on council
for all new faculties.

• THE MUMMERY
By JABEZ        TED kirkpatrick
ONE OF THE THINGS I used to dream
about at night, if Rita Hayworth wasn't
available, was my first (suit of civvies after
discharge. This as I recall was to be a
dramatic number incorporating most of the
colors of the visual spectrum, with more
pockets than my hands could find time for
and shoulders wide enough to necessitate
my sidling through any opening narrower
than the First Narrows.
With something like this in mind I recently sailed into a local tailorshop, brandishing my priority certificate and addressing
the help:
"I'd like a new suit, double-breasted, with
two pair^ of pants, fully-cuffed, and a
package of matches in the pocket."
The salesman nodded amiably, gently re
moved the priority certificate from my hand
and, humming a gay, mad tune that I didn't
recognize, beat me briskly about the face
with it. Tiring of this, he asked with wide-
eyed interest:
"I'll bet you'd like pleats in the trousers,
too, wouldn't you?"
I nodded confirmation.
Wants Pleats, Yet
"Oh, Mr. Biscombe!" he shouted to a
colleague hovering nearby. "This gentleman
wants pleats in his trousers."
Mr. Biscombe gave a short hoot and ran
behind a rack of overcoats, peering around
the corner and coyly waving the arm of an

Fine In Its Time
LAST WEEK'S "Lost Weekend" has not really settled itself
in try mind. I still don't know
whether it is a case-history or a
work of art. The Aristotelian
principle of tragedy as that which
happens to the strong or noble or
in some way "elevated" would
seem to disqualify it, and yet it
had impact.
While still prowling round this
whole idea, I read this week the
new Evelyn Waugh novel, "Brides-
head Revisited—The Sacred and
Profane Memories of Captain
Charles Ryder," and was again
faced with a dipsomaniac in the
person    of    Sebastian  Flyte,  the
"MY THEME," he says at the
beginning of Book 11, is memory,
that winged host that soared about
me one grey morning of wartime." This leads from his golden
days of friendship and youth with
Sebastian, to those later days
when Lady Marchmaln encroached
on this solitude and he lost Sebastian who had taken to drinking to escape her. It leads him
ln memory through his days of
dubious success as an architectural painter of the great homes of
England, his marriage with Lady
Cella Mulcaster, his return to
Brideshead after six years as the
lover of Sebastian's sister, Lady
Julia Mottram, his divorce to die,
IT IS THE ONLY thing of
Waugh's I have read with this
pleasure. The others, "Decline
and Fall" where he describes his
own experience as a schoolmaster
at an impossible school in Wales
and his escape to the fashionable
world; "Vile Bodies' 'In wnich this
sama fashionable set is satirized;
"Black Mischief" where the hero
goes out to advise a black-skinned
Oxford acquaintance on how to
run his small country and accidentally eats the heroine at a
feast; ths over-strained satire of
war-reporting in "Scoop" based on
his own experience in Ethiopia;
"A Handful of Dust" which was
the most diabolically clever of the
lot; and a book of travel essays,
"A Bachelor Abroad," all had, for
this spectator, the crazy grace and
daring of a performance on a high
trapeze ,and they were just as unsettling to the stomach. This same
mind is working in "Brideshead
Revisited" but the satire here permits a more dimensional appearance to his people and the style la
much easier to read. But though
the prose is more readable it is
not really less dangerous in implication. Captain Ryder and his
friends of 1926 come over from
Paris during the General Strike,

beautiful, charming, harried but
gentle Lord Sebastian, who became by the end of the story the
broken, shambling, drunkon but
still gentle Lord Sebastian. This,
however, though it can be taken
as a lead-string into the pattern
put together by Mr. Waugh is not
its only, or even its main thread.
Captain Ryder Is posted to a new
camp during this present war and
arrives to find himself at Brideshead which he had known well as
the home of his former Oxford
friend, Lord Sebastian Flyte,
younger son of the Marquis of
Marchmain.
his death at peace Anally with the
Catholic Church, and Julia's final
renunciation of himself in order to
escape her overpowering sense of
'sin.' And eventually he arrives
back at the present which he calls
the "Age of Hooper" after a young
sub-lieutenant in charge of one
of his platoons, with Brldeshead's
revisited fountain wired-in to
protect it from the soldiers, its
water turned off, and its dry basin
filled with cigarette-ends and
other debris. The charm with
which he has endowed these people and his place, makes his memories seem realer than that "grey
morning of war-time."

"to help save their country," but
from whom—'It was as though a
beast long disabled for its ferocity
had emerged for an hour, scented
danger, and slunk back to its lair.
It had not been worth leaving
Paris." And who were his friends
—"We were joined by a Belgian
Futurist who . . . claimed the
right to bear arms in any battle
whatever against the lower classes." This reactionary strain is
also apparent in his reverence for
the Marchmain's hereditary grandeur; in his identification of good
with the aristocratic tradition,
and evil with pushing upstarts;
in his respectful change at the
death-bed return to the Catholic
Church of Lord Marchmain, and at
the very end his description of
the Chapel, again open and frequented by tae soldiers, whose
"red flame . . . burning anew
among the old stones" he speaks
of as "the last word" which none
of them perhaps could have predicted but justified their "fierce
little human tragedy." I would
recommend this book to everyone
who enjoys reading good prose,
but I would add this word of
warning, keep your eyes peeled.
This good prose contains some
highty peculiar thinking.

ONE OF MANY SPIRITED
UBC BUILDING CAMPAIGNS
THE OLD GYMNASIUM, still the only indoor athletic
structure on the campus, proved not overly adequate even
when it was first opened in 1929 to a student body of 1500.
There are now nearly 7000 students attending the University.
Student agitation for a gym be-
BLOOD, SWEAT, AND TEARS—All these and a lot of
worries were expended in erection of this building by the
students of 1926 to 1929. From the inception of the university
at the Fairview shacks the students had begun to think of
p. gymnasium. When the university moved out to Point Grey
the gymnasium plans were shoved into the background until
the students began to campaign. In 1929 the building, now
inadequate for the present student population, was completed.

gan as early as 1926. Athletic facilities then consisted of several
frame dressing sheds and one
partly cleared, partly wooded playing field, which was usually covered with water anyway,
Sinoe the authorities failed to do
anything about the situation as
consistently as they recognized the
need, the students decided to take
the matter into their own hands.
START IN 1926
Thus it was in 1926 that the plan
was first formulated for a university building to be erected with
funds realized through a student
campaign. The Student Council
of the AMS for that year advanced several schemes, all of which
failed to materialize. The responsibility fell then upon the incoming
Council of 1927-28.
This next Council approached
the provincial Government for a
loan of $90,000, to be retired within
fifty years with a fund to be realized through an additional AMS
fee. The Government declined the
offer. Later in the same year the
Board of Governors of the University refused to ratify an AMS
offer to issue a private bond also
on AMS funds. Again the agitation passed to the following Council.
FACTIONS AGREE
The 1928-29 Council, under the
presidency of J. Ross Tolmle, was
determined to take definite action
against the 'stupid and pointless
adherence to precedent.' After
two abortive attempts to obtain
the necessary financial assistance,
a mutual agreement was finally
reached. This was in the spring
of 1929.
A trust deed was drawn up and
subsequently approved by the
AMS, the Board of Governors, and
the financiers. A bond Issue of
$35,000 was floated and plans were
made with the Department of
Public Worica calling for the
construction of the building during the summer of 1929.
The gym was officially opened
at a osremony held in conjunction
with Homecoming Week on November 14, 1929 with Lieut-Governor Randolph Bruce officiating.
INADEQUACY
There have been no major additions or alterations made to the
original structure. Its maximum
seating capacity is not over 1400.
The floor is of regulation dimensions of a single basketball court.
The shower and locker room facilities are strictly limited and there
is no accommodation for special
activities such as boxing, archery
fencing, badminton, and weight
lifting.
In all, the facilities of the present
gym answer comfortably the requirements of only one quarter of
the compulsory physical training
classes, litis ls outside of the demands made by conference games,
team practices, Intra-Mural sports
and athletic clubs.
This severe inadequacy ia also
directly responsible for the absence of a Physical Education Department at the University, since
there is no provision for such
training. There is no school or or-
ganizatlon in the province in a
position to offer such a course.
For this reason B.C. public
schools together with such local
athletic organizations aa YJIA.C.A.
and the Pro-Rec must draw their
instructors from outside colleges,
while students desiring to become
instructors must leave the province.
ENTHUSIASM AT PEAK — Campaign organizers who
led the historic trek from the Fairview shacks to Point Grey
mounted the skeleton of the Science building in October, 1922
when enthusiasm was at its height. In the final swirl of the
campaign the students had marched out to the university,
assembled on the university site, and dedicated the Cairn.
Following the march the students were congratulated by
President L. S. Klinck, who told them, "Your enthusiasm is
contagious."
THE  MUMMERY   (Cont.)
overcoat at me.
"Do you prefer buttons or zipper?" continued the salesman. "Or do you just want
to rough it?"
I had my heart set on a zipper and said
so.
"Mr. Biscombe! The gentleman covets a
zipper!"
At this, Mr. Biscombe lept out, pirouetted
prettily, and ran back behind the overcoats.
I sensed something wrong, but couldn't
put my finger on it.
"Now, about material," resumed my host.
"Would you care for a nice blue serge?"
"Isn't blue serge better for an older man?"
I asked.
"Don't worry," he cried. "By the time
the suit is ready you'll be an older man."
Older and Wiser
Mr. Biscombe nodded happily, stroking
an imaginary beard and hobbling about in
a circle as if supported by a cane.
"Haven't you anything in a Scotch tweed
that would fit me?"
The salesman uttered a sharp laugh.
"The last time we saw Scotch tweed was
in the fall of forty-four," he said, "when we
forced a moth to regurgitate."
"You mean I can'; get a suit right away?"
I bleated. "What am I going to do without
clothes?"
"You might let your hair grow," he
beamed. "In fact, you seem to have a good
start there already."
"Surely there's something I could buy to
wear now, while I'm still young?"
"Certainly! How about a jolly cashmere
scarf?"
"Wear a scarf instead of a suit?" I snarled.
"Isn't that a little daring?"
"Then there's our Tyrolean combination
set: boy's knickers and a hat with a feather
in it."
"What about a smart loincloth?" chimed
in Mr. Biscombe. "With a water-bag and
leper's bell you're set . . ."
Negligible Negligee
I hurriedly left Biscombe and company to
try a number of other haberdashers, with
equally negligible results. Neither could I
purchase the socks my gnawing toes craved,
the underwear needed to insulate the
modesty of my thinning trousers-seat, nor
the shirts to replace the shredded souvenirs
of the Hoover era that the laundry has been
sending back with a card of sympathy.
In shirts, I have worked down to a green
specimen of bygone days, with a collar that
clutches my throat like a hungry vampire.
Still in relatively good repair, this shirt
unfortunately denies me the liberty of removing outer garments without revealing
the legend: "Kootenay Lake Scout Cubs -
HAIRY OTTER PATROL."
In view of all these shortages, fellows, I'd
like to tell you about the stylish spring
barrel I'm having whipped up for me by the
Marpole Cooperage Ltd. This barrel will
be of knotty pine with pleated staves and a
bung in the back. And to give it that
college air, the cask will feature a revealing
yoke of knotholes and will give off a satisfying aroma of old draft beer . . .

The BC government voted $1,-
500,000 for Immediate construction
of permanent buildings at Point
Grey.
The Cornerstone Ceremony took
place October 5, 1923, and classes
were held in the new buildings in
1925.
In 1929 a bond issue of 135,000
was floated by the AMS and the
opening of the new Gyrii coincided
with Homecoming that year.
In 1930 the drive for the Stadium
began.
The committee hoped to get a
giant of $200,000 appropriated by
the government for unemployment
relief on grounds that the construction work would give jobs to
many.
Public support was good and the
late Dean Brock was an ardent
worker. However, the drive lagged
and it was not until 1937 that the
Stadium was completed.
BROCK DRIVE
The beginning of the drive for
the Brock Memorial Building
started in 1936 but was interrupted
by the final Stadium campaign.
An objective of $30,000 was finally
reached in 1939 and with the help
of a $25,000 grant from the Board
of Governors, excavation started
on Brock Hall site shortly before
the Fall term of 1939.
After the Christmas holidays,
Student Council offices moved into
the Brock and the official opening
was February 1, 1939.
From these offices in the Brock
is directed the largest student
campaign in the history of UBC. Saturday, February 2, 1946

Varsity Pucksters Wallop
No. Two Equipment Depot
By CHICK TURNER
VARSITY'S high-powered hockey club played their
accustomed role of tyrant Wednesday night, as they
smothered No. 2 Equipment Depot under a barrage of rubber,
to skate off the freeze with a cosy 10-3 decision. The lopsided win marked their twelfth of the season and augured
well for their chances of capturing the BC Intermediate
%Crown at Vernon.
Husky defenceman Jim Rowledge opened the scoring with a
blistering drive from close in to
set the student crew rolling, followed by a neat effort by Lloyd
Torfason which climaxed a hectic fracas in front of the cage. The
Airforce pucksters got back into
the game on a breakaway play,
but a trio of counters by Berry,
Husband, and Porteous gave the
Thunderbirds a 5-1 margin as the
whistle blew ending the initial
canto.
SANDWICH SESSION RAGGED
Brilliant line-play by the first
string trio ol Husband, Saunders,
and Porteous featured the torrid
sandwich session which turned
into a wide-opsn affair with ragged play at times.
Chuck Keating lofted the rubber past thc belaboured Airforce
custodbn for the sixth marker for
Varsity, and amid the ensuing
confusion reigning in their opponents' camp, the shifty boys from
Point Grey added another off the
foxy stick of Varuc.'; Bob Saunders.
The Equipment Depot tried to
live up to their vocation as a
hockey outfit, with two quick
tallies late in the period, to narrow the margin to 7-3 at the
gong.
SAUNDERS SCORES PAIR
Coach Lambert's stalwarts added
three more without reply in the
final period as they sifted through
ths Depot's defence to pummel
the cage with rubber and put thc
name on ice. Saunders bulled his
way into range and bulged thc
twine with a picture shot to the
corner, and came back again with
another piece of skill to complete
his hat trick for the afternoon.
Mac Porteous ended the rampage,
hoisting one deep into the mesh,
; .i the count entered thc double
figures.

OVERCROWDED? DOES UBC NEED A NEW GYM? — These photos by Bill
Cunningham of the Daily Province indicate how badly the University of BC needs a larger
gymnasium. In both of the action shots, students can be seen crowding through the windows
to see the Harlem Globe Trotters game against the Thunderbirds. It was a great victory for
UBC, and the fans think so, too, The above photo shows a close-up of the students, packed
tightly together in order to get as many in the gym as possible. Even at that, hundreds
were turned away.
DRIVE OPENS TO FIND
NEW ROOST FOR 'BIRDS
By DON McCLEAN
THE NEW War Memorial Gymnasium, for which plans were announced today, will
open up a new era in sport and Physical Education in British Columbia.
The creation of a Department of Physical Education, which is bound to follow this
announcement, will have a far-reaching effect on the youth of the province.

squad, which had galloped to an
impressive series of twelve straight
wlns.hit a snag Thursday night,
dropping a narrow 34-30 decision
to Tookes at the King Ed Gym.
Despite a comfortable 18-13 lead
at the half, the students ran into
some- inspired play with the result that they racked up a goose-
egg in th? third canto while
Tookes netted twelve points. The
margin was too great to overcome, and the Varsity boys sidled
off the maple losers for the first
time this ycar. Forsyth was in
stride with 10 points.
Happier results were forthcoming in the Inter A tilt when the
Frosh scored a major ups:t at the
expense of the high-flying Arrows
A to the tune of a 42-35 count.
Boasting a terrific 22-7 lead at the
intermission, the university squad
coasted to the win on the strength
of McLeod's string of eleven
points.
GERMANIAK
ARCHERY HEAD
THE NEWLY-FORMED executive of the UBC Archery Club
elected on the 12th of the month
comprises S A. Germaniak as
president, O. S. Scudmore as vice-
president, and Lois Cook as secretary-treasurer.
A constitution for the club was
drawn up and amended for sub-
m is.-ion to tho Students' Council.
Plans for an active season are
being made and the club sincerely
requests that students who are at
all interested in archery take advantage of this opportunity to learn
thc sport. New members are particularly welcome. The only requirement  is  enthusiasm.
A notice board for archery will
be posted this week on the northwest section of the quad notice
board. Consult it for developments, and now, turn out for that
meeting.
McKechnie Cup
At Brockton Pt
WHILE VARSITY remains idle
in the English rugby picture over
the week-end, the Victoria Crimson
Tide and the Vancouver Lions are
going to do battle with all the
trimmings. Capitalizing on the
recent enthusiasm engendered by
the classy brand of rugger displayed in the McKechnie Cup
series, members of Vancouver's
Rugby Union are planning to make
Saturday's tilt a gala event.
LOTS OF COLOUR
The sports maxim that the fan
makes the game seems to have
finally been taken to heurt, and
Joe B'urrows, publicity chairman
of the Union is over in Victoria
with a view to convincing the
Islanders of its truth.
Whether the Tide brings thoir
own support or not, the Lions will
be well taken care of by a cheering
section and two blaring bands —
Spencer's Remnants and the Fireman's Band.
For the supporters who plan to
make the jaunt to Brockton, transportation will be provided; for
those who plan to stay home Saturday afternoon, the game will be
broadcast over CBR. And—a minor
detail—the game will decide leadership in the hectic McKechnie Cup
battle.
Bishop, Cougars
it With OSC
Spl
GAIL BISHOP made his debut
en the maple planking at Pullman
an auspicious one as he led the
Washington Cougars to an even
.split with the OSC Beavers to drop
the Oregon aggregation to a second
place tie with Idaho Vandals.
Despite losing a hcartbreaker on
Monday night by a narrow 50-43
margin, the triumph Tuesday night
definitely augered well for tho
Cougar Club who had won but
cue game in seven. Interest
centered around the colorful Bishop
whose entry into the Coast Conference grabbed the headlines last
week.
The All-American guard came Up
with a rather loose performance
auring the initial tilt, netting a
paltry eight points, but the romping hoopsters from the Washington
club found nothing lacking in his
smoothness Tuesday night as the
galloping Gail paced them to a
clean cut 49-34 win over the high-
riding Beavers.
At the present time there are only 10 qualified Physical
Education instructors in the province, whereas, to fill the
needs of the present population, there should be at least 100.
The new gym will provide a fitting home for the gasket-
balling Thunderbirds who have done so much to put the
name of UBC on the sports map.
THUNDERBIRDS FLEW HIGH
The Thunderbirds, 'long a familiar name in Canadian
basketball circles, blossomed out into the American scene last
season when they held the University of Oregon Webfoots
to two narrow victories in exhibition games.
This season the 'Birds spread their wings and waded right
into American competition. Their record of 14 victories
against five defeats while playing against their southern
neighbors speaks for itself.
They have broken even in eight games against the major
colleges in the northwest and are at present tied for the
lead in the Pacific Northwest Conference.
COAST CONFERENCE NEXT STOP
But this is only a start! Coach Bob Osborne's plans call
for a franchise in the Pacific Coast Conference along with
Oregon, Oregon State, Washington, Washington .State and
Idaho. But with the present gym, which will only seat 1500
spectators, entry into that set-up would be a costly venture.
But with the new gym, with a seating capacity of 5000,
and a student body of 7000 behind them, the Thunderbirds
possibilities are unlimited.
The present gym will probably be turned into a women's
physical education centre. At the present time it is in use
thirteen hours a day in a vain attempt to keep up with the
physical education requirements and the Intramural sports
program.
GIVE TILL IT HURTS
The new gym will provide adequate facilities for a full
physicaj education program and for an expanded intramural
set-up.
The newly formed Varsity Swimming Club will have a
new home; the boxing club will have it's own training rooms;
handball, squash and badminton will be given a boost and
physical education will once again take it's rightful place in
student activities.
But it's up to YOU, the students of UBC, the people of
BC to help themselves.
SO DIG DOWN DEEP AND GIVE!
