NOBEL PRIZE WINNER Dr. Ernest Orlando Lawrence put
UBC on a par with other North American universities during
his address at the opening of the new Physics Building yesterday afternoon.
Coming from the Congregation, where he had just received
an honorary degree of Doctor of Science, the inventor of the
cyclotron had warm words for the progress being made on the
campus at the present time.
With him during his northern visit is another California
physicist, Dr. Lee Alvin DuBridge, president of the Institute of

Principal Speaker
Principal guest speaker, Dr. O. M.
Solandt, expressed the belief that tlie
present expansion of UBC would tend
to keep physics students in Canada,
whereas they had formerly found it
necessary to move south of the border
to carry on their studies.
So great was the attendance at the
opening that latecomers crowded the
aisles and overflowed into a nearby
lecture room where a public address
system conveyed the speeches to
Following the ceremony, the crowd
dispersed to informally inspect the
first permanent building to be opened
on the campus in more than two decades.
Mr. Hart and Dr. Solandt were introduced by Dr. N. A. M. MacKenzie,
who also introduced the other guests
of honor. Included among them was
Dr. G. M. Shrum, for whom the
University president had high words
of praise.
New Events
Tea, Dances, Campus Tours
Welcome Returning Alumns
Plans to make Saturday's annual Homecoming celebration
of proportions to shadow all former affairs of its kind arc-
rapidly taking shape, according to a statement yesterday from
Bob Bagnall, Co-ordinator of Social Activities,
Among the events designed to welcome Varsity's returning grads are an
ai'ternoon tea in Brock hall, two
special dances and a conducted' tour
of the campus during the "open
house" in the morning.
Athletic highlight of the Cairnists'
twenty-fifth anniversary is the football contest between the UBC Thunderbirds and the Pioneers from Lewis
and Clark College.
At press time officials were still
debating the idea of running a two-
mile track event during the half time
intermission of the game.
Special booths, to be located in the
Quad, the Library and Brock Hall,
will cater to Alums who wish to
make a tour of the campus.
Another special directional booth,
possibly to be installed on the Main
Mall, will give information to those
who wish to see the campus on their
Two dances will wind up the event,
one in Brock Hall for alumni only,
the other in the Armoury for students and alums alike.
Special tickets distributed at the
Brock Hall affair will allow the returning grads to come and go.
Group To Collect

Brock Hall will become a centre
for works of art on the campus
through a fund set up this week by
Student Council.

Toronto Irate
Over Fee Raise
Toronto, Oct. 30—(CUP)—More than
ten clubs at the University of Toronto
have banded together to protest the
recent action of the Board of Governors in raising tuition fees.
Students rallied outside the Provincial buildings and members of the
House   addressed   the   student   body.
The meeting was called by a
number of social political and cultural organizations on the campus to
obtain a concrete stand from the
student body protesting the increases.
A typical protest was issued by a
member of the CCF club. "We realize
that the increase of costs to the university is unavoidable but we feel
that this increase should be borne
by the provincial government. The
financial barrier, which already prohibits so many from attending university, should be made as small as
possible," he said.
without sweat," the editor of Saturday
Night said, after expressing the hope
that not one of the graduating students had achieved his education
without   "considerable  effort."
More than 300 graduates received
degrees in arts, social work, home
economics, commerce and applied
science during the impressive exercises.
"This University should always have
an open door, but not an escalator,"
he said.
Basing his address on the Latin
quotation meaning "Let him bear the
palm who has earned it," the speaker
held the entire assembly spellbound
as he quipped his way through half
an hour of advice to student graduates.
Four noted scientists also received
honorary degress which were conferred upon them by Eric W. Hamber,
chancellor  of  the University.
Hon, John Hart, Premier of B.C.,
received the honorary degree of Doctor of Laws, while honorary Doctor
of Science degrees went to Dr. A, L.
DuBridge, Dr. Ernest O. Lawrence,
Dr. Chalmers Jack Mackenzie and
Ormond  McKillop Solandt.
Trek Recalled
At Brief Rites
Twenty-fifth Anniversary of
the Great Trek of 1922 was
solemnly revered at a brief but
significant ceremony at the
foot of the Cairn Wednesday
Speaking to a gathering of more
than 200 colorfully gowned faculty
members, graduates and students,
J. V. Clyne, recalled the rainy day
25 years ago to the day when students
of UBC then housed in the Fairview
huts paraded with posters through the
city to Point Grey—the present, site
of the campus.
Mr. Clyne, now a Vancouver businessman, was a member of the class
of '22, and was present for the Trek.
Special tribute was paid to F. F.
Wesbrook, first president of the University, and L. S, Klinck, his successor, for the role in developing the
Point Grey campus.
Several Alumni who made the
Trek were present for the commemoration.

Editor, the Ubyssey:
Would you kindly explain why,
when you are constantly appealing
for brevity in. letters, and remarking
on inability to print many of them,
at' the same time you print such
lengthy and highly partisan leftist
humbug as "Food For Thought" by
Harold Dean and Lipson's "Plain

It is not without significance that within
the space of one week students at the University of B.C. will play host to three leading
Canadians, any one of whom may some day
wear the robes of Dominion Prime Minister.
All three have found time during busy visits
to the western hinterland for addresses lo tho
students of Canada's second largest university.
Their visits are a tribute to UBC's preeminent stature in the minds of Canada's
leaders, and an education for students which
no course in political science can offer. The
guests on UBC's campus represent the three
major sides of political thought in Canada
today. Their words carry import for students
of all political shades' It is truly said that one
cannot attack an enemy without first understanding him.
The first of UBC's three prominent guests
has already spoken to a packed student
audience This week two others will add
their words to those of John Bracken ''Farmer John" and "Honest John," the Manitoba
Premier who added the adjective "Progressive" to his party's name.
Next on  the  political agenda  for  UBC
is Paul Martin, a minister in the King cabinet,
a young and forthright politician who has
been widely hinted as a successor to his
leader. His address will be heard today in
the Auditorium.
A scholarly leader of North America's
only successful Socialist party completes the
third side of Canada's eternal political triangle. As the leader of a party which in a
few short years has captured the government
of one province and formed the official Opposition of another, M. J, Coldwell will have
words of vitality and interest for those who
accept him as a future Prime Minister as well
as for those who regard him as an ambassador
of the Devil himself,
In all, the enlightened outlook of a Students Council which has opened the University's gates lo men of all beliefs allows
undergraduates a gaze into the political cry.";- i
tal ball that few Canadians are privileged to
share. Few others in the Dominion have the
opportunity to hear Canada's men of aflairs
a.s lunchtime entertainment. The combination
may produce severe cases of gastric upset,
but Canada's 'leaders of the future" can be
expected to put intellect ahead of indigestion ;

Daily Ubyssey's accounts of these two
speeches are accurate enough to permit the
formation of an opinion from them.
Hon. John Bracken took the stand on
Saturday to urge everyone present to leap out
of the frying pan into the flame of Progressive-Conservative activity.
An enthusiastic attitude. But it leaves
me cold. If any part of his speech could
captivate me it would be the man's modesty.

Ottawa, March 21, 1953—Prime Minister
John Bracken today drew the applause of
the entire House of Commons following his
resolution to 'localize all relief in Canada.
"Condemning what he termed 'a Communist scheme to make the democracies
starve to death on an international scale,' the
Prime Minister outlined his plan to arrange
for every citizen of Canada to have a bread

Dear Sir:
After considerable thought, I have
found a solution to tl\e apparently
perpetual bickering about who sits
where and why in the caf. Admitting
that a person who sits down in the
caf prevents someone else from doing
I so, then obviously those who sit
discriminate against those who stand.
Discrimination is bad. In fact, it's
"undemocratic"—-naturally, anything
one dislikes is "undemocratic". Down
with discrimination Wipe the ether
day, I was going to have a cup of
coffee with a frond, or rather we
were each going to have a cup of
coffee, and we went to sit at a table
where some women were sitting and
found they all belonged to some
organization called "staff" and they
were saving space for their friends,
and  ....
But my solution, ah yes, my solution. It is so simple that only a fool
couldn't see it.    Let me see ... .
Granted that there aren't enough
chairs in the caf for everyone to
sit, and granted that those who sit
discriminate against those who stand,
the solution is obvious. THROW OL*T'
THE CHAIRS. They're too damned
uncomfortable anyhow, and too damned ugly.
The problem is settled. Now everyone has to stand and there can be
no discrimination. But, if charges
are daringly hurled—and there appear
to be certain opportunistic hurlers—
that "certain standers" are standing
where they shouldn't, then once again
the solution is obvious. THROW OUT
THE TABLES. This is known as
equal distribution of wealth as ad-
vovcated—but seldom practiced—by
certain political groups.

getting out.

IRC Conference Slated
To Meet At Acadia Camp
Dr. Peter H. Odegard, president of Reed College, Portland,
Oregon, will be the major speaker at this year's Northwest
Regional Conference of International Relations Clubs to be
held at Acadia Camp November 21 and 22.
Theme   of   the   conference   will   be$ ■ —   - ■ —
"Can   the  east-west   split  be  recon
ciled?" The subject was chosen because of the interest of the entire
world in the present meetings of tho
United Nations at Lake Success, club
officials explained.
Some   of   the   delegates'   views   on
this   topic   will   be   expressed   over

Another delegate to the conference
is Earl Robinson of the University
of Hawaii, who is looking forward
with considerable enthusiasm to his
visit to Vancouver.
Seventeen universities and colleges
have to date requested accommodation in the city for the period of
the conference, R. J. Mawer of UBC's
IRC told The Daily Ubyssey Tuesday.
A total of G4 students have accepted
the invitations issued by the local
club. Officials said they expect at
least 100 to be in attendance, representing the United States, Canada
and   Ilawedi.
Limitid accommodation at Acadia
Camp has forced the executive to
cut representation from each college
to a maximum of ten students.
Chief speaker at the conference,

M.A. from the University of Washington, and his Ph.D. from Columbia
U. Before being appointed to his

Varsity Swim Club Plans
Splashfull Season In '47
Car strike or no car strike, the enthusiastic members of
the UBC Swim Club are turning out to regular meetings at
the Crystal Pool.
Every Monday from 8:00 to 10:00
p.m. Wednesday from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m.,
a casual spectator will see the club
members going through their paces
down at the pool. But each Friday
noon the team climbs out of the
water for a few scant moments and
takes swimming gymnastics in the
stadium gym from 12:30 to 1:00.
There are a large number of outstanding stars with this year's club
who are trying out for the UBC intercollegiate team. A quick view of just
a few of these shining aquamen is as
Taddy Wilson, from John Oliver
High, member of Vancouver Swim
Club for Ave years—holds at least a
half dozen B.C. records —Dominion
champion 50 yard backstroke.
Nick Stobbard: from King Edward
High—on Junior Dominion champion
relay team last year—200 yard freestyle artist.
Jack Creedon: from King George
High—swam for Victoria "Flying Y"
—member of the Junior Medley Relay team with Peter Salmon and
Eric Jubb.
Bob Thistle: from Kits High—three
years with VASC, swam in the Dominion races and placed third in the
100 yard backstroke.
George Knight: from North Burnaby High—sprint art'ist, in the meet between VASC and the Vancouver Y
he placed second, finishing inches behind Teddy Wilson in the sprint.
"Percy Norman, VASC coach, has
given these men an extensive training
program. They will, however, swim
for UBC if chosen for the team," said
UBC swim coach Doug Whittle in an
exclusive interview.
There are prospects of a meet with
the Victoria "Flying Y" team in the
near future. Invitation letters have
been sent out to the Other colleges
in the Northwest Conference, but
no replies have been received as yet.
Something definite should be known
by the end of next week.
Fort Camp Has
New Sports Club
The members of Fort Samp Monday evening got together to form a
new sports club on the campus, the
Fort Camp Athletic Association. Les
King, who was elected chairman of
the club, yesterday announced the
plans and hopes for the year to come.
King, and a three man committee,
plan to put Fort Camp on the athletic map. He expressed sympathy
for the best of the teams in the
'mural league, as he glowingly described the diversified athletic talent
at the camp.
Volleyball wil] be the first field of
endeavour for this new club. King
states that only one team is being
entered but that it is the cream of
the crop. 'Mural hoop will see two
entries  from  Fort  Camp.
Enthusiasm is running high, says
the new chairman, with the entrance
of the camp into Varsity sports activities. • He says that competition
for team membership is "something
Eric Corrison, the club basketball
coach, is busy weeding out players
from a mass of talent.
The exuberant King said that there
is a very good chance that an ice
hockey squad will be formed, for
competition with any other team
that will  take them on.

Half-time At Homecoming Hoop
Features Wheel Chair Football
Half time at the Homecoming melon-match will feature
a "wheel chair football" tilt between paraplegics from Shaughnessy Military Hospital and a quintet of UBC physical training
Luke Moyls,  Graduate  Manager  of-*	
Athletics, has announced that half of
the gate receipts will be donated to
the Canadian Paraplegic Association.
This game is the first of its kind
open to the public. As intimated by
the name, the game is played in wheel
chairs. For the last two years it has
been the most popular sport at the
Hospital, and the players have become so adept at the game, that they
usually whip the Hospital physical
training instructors.
The primary aim of the event is
to prove to the public that veterans
such as these on the team are not
shut-ins, despite war injuries which
have paralyzed them from the waist
The game is a hybrid development
of football, hockey, and basketball.
Realizing the confusion which would
develop in the spectators' minds just
before the game, Malcolm Brown,
DVA casuality rehabilitation officer,
and a UBC Alum, will briefly explain
the rules.
Martin Berry, physical re-educationist, and originator of the game,
will referee the game.
Fern Hoop Tilts
Boasts Action
Fern Intramural hoop games played
yesterday featured a stunning victory
for the Phys. Ed. team who trampled
roughshod over an Arts quintet 6-2,
and another win for Home Ec. "A"
who beat Commerce by a narrow 2-0
In the first contest, Doreen Campbell scored the first tally for the Phy.
Ed, cagettes for the only score in
the first half. Marion Bennet led the
way in the second half by sinking
another shot for Phy. Ed., but Gret-
chen Mathers retaliated by racking
up two points for the Artswomen.
Grace Titus completed the score with
another basket for the winners.
Home Ec. "A" and Commerce fought
for almost four periods without a
score, but seconds before the final
whistle, Jean Tomsett of the Home
Ec. team broke away and scored ths
lone tally of the game.
PERENNIAL  CASABA  CLASSIC—Scenes   like   that   above   will   be   duplicated   Saturday
night when the 'Birds hoop quintet meet a grad squad in the Gym.
Saturday is Homecoming Day at UBC.
It's a day that has a great deal of sentimental
value to those returning to the campus . . .
and if that day is to be a success, it had better
be loaded with color.
You see, we have an obligation.
The feeling that these Alumni bring with
them when they return to recapture memories of previous days at UBC is not something which we as Undergraduates can easily
capture. They will be trouping out through
the gates with many thoughts in mind of
their college life . . . they will be starting
out with some feeling of the old college spirit
already instilled in their veins by memories
of the past.
But things have changed since most -.>f
these Alums started out into the world. We're
a big time college now. We've got plenty to
be proud of . . . but a great deal depends
on the way we show off this pride.
Many of those memories that will be
running around the minds of our visitors
will have to do with sports, for what is
more typically collegiate than a colorful grid
or basketball tilt?
Our job on Saturday will be to help
those Alumni recapture the old college spirit
on what, to them, is a totally new campus.
What better way is there than to show plenty
of that spirit ourselves?
We're asking you to become a part of that
college atmosphere, Let's go to the basketball
and grid games, and win or lose, let's yell.
Let's bring as many visitors to the campus
a.s possible and show them that we're proud
of UBC. Let's show a little of the same fight
that the teams show.
Let's instill some of that college color into
a very important day.

Event - Packed
Show On Tap
Half-time at' Saturday's grid spectacle will be anything but dull if
present plans are carried out.
Arthur Delamont will be on hand
with the effervescent Varsity band.
The whole UBC Pipe band will stage
a show that will have all Scotsmen
in a state of heavenly bliss. Drum
majorettes will also add color to the
show, and it will be a tossup among
the fans where to concentrate their
In addition to all this, it is proposed
to stage an invitation 2-mile run in
an attempt to break a few of the
existing campus records. The event
will feature such stars as Al Bain and
Bob Piercy as well as a host of others.
With an abundance of talent such
as this, the fans should be fairly
certain of an entertaining show. Between twirling batons, skirling pipes,
rousing marches, and flashing runners, the campus rooters will be hard-
put to sit back and rest.
