LOTS OF ADJUSTMENT is needed by students of a psychology of adjustment class at UBC to meet three times a week in the
agriculture pavilion, a mile from the Armory. Students must hike themselves on to farm tractors and other improvised desks to
hear the lectures of Dr. Joseph E. Morsh.
Book Exchange
Deadline Today
Deadline for payment from thi
UBC book exchange is today, officials
of the Commerce Undergraduate Society announce.
Books unclaimed by the close cf
business will be turned over to the
ISS for world student relief, managers
of   the   Armory   book   shop   declare.
AMS To Expand
Student Budget
Bob Harwood stated today that the
AMS plans to launch a money raising
campaign in an effort to expand the
budget far added student expenses.
This affair, probably a monster
dance, is expected to take place at
some time during the spring term.
Harwood has planned to give this
feature a zany twist. He said that
included with the admission price of
$1.00 would be the very generous
gift of a Chinese $100 bill worth
approximately 1/10 of a cent on the
Black. Market). However there will
also bc included a chance at the door
prize, said to bc a car.
To facilitate sales a prize will be
offered to the person selling the
greatest number of tickets.
Council members have always been righteous but two
of them became angels Monday night at the regular meeting
of the campus law-givers.
Appointed to the role of "Council Christian" in recognition of their long standing purity Stu Porteous, Junior
Member, and Taddy Knapp, Secretary, were presented with
frilly paper halos by formal council motion.
Finding no sanforized label, Taddy quipped "6V4, just
my size," as Porteous mumbled something of deeper significance.
Four Champions Chosen
In McGoun Cup Tryouts
Four champions have been chosen to represent the University in verbal battle for the much-coveted McGoun Cup. The
four debaters are: Art Hiller, Bob Keenan, Stu Chambers and
Bob McDonnel.
They will defend the negative of'
the resolution ''Resolved that the
Canadian Government should curb
the power of organized labor." The
debate will be held at the University
of  Alberta  on January  16,  1948.
Final McGoun Cup debate tryouts
were held Thursday at 12:30 p.m.
by the Parliamentary Forum under
the chairmanship of Michael Creal.
The topic under debate was "Resolved
USC Indignant Over Pub
Answer To Resolution
Indignation arose at Monday's meeting of the Undergraduate Societies Committee with the reading of Daily Ubyssey
Editor Don Ferguson's reply to charges made by the student
representatives two weeks ago.
Few more  than  two  dozen  of the
committee's fifty members appeared
at the noon hour session, where Doug
Hogarth, press representative for the
body, read the Publications Board's
acceptance of the USC proposal for
a meeting of the two groups.
Various members expressed indignation at the reply, which stated that
the Publications Board would be
"just as belligerent in our attitude
as the USC charge had been, despite
what the above (the preamble) had
F.US President Ron Grantham took
exception to the term, "tempest in
a teapot" thai the Pub answer applied
to   the   whole   affair.
Grantham a.sserled that "it was !h"
intention of our resolution lo eliminate such an altitude toward differences which arise between groups
on   the   campus."
Chairman Rosemary Hodgins repeatedly stressed the "non-belligerent
spirit" of the resolution, as outlined
in  its opening paragraph.
Regarding the Pub charge that USC
had been "underhanded, to say the
least" in going to Council with the
charges before presenting them to
the Publications Board, USC member Bob Currie said that Tlie Daily
Ubyssey would have known of the
charges beforehand if their pressman
had been in attendance when tin-
resolution   was   drawn  up.
Tlie resolution was made during a
special meeting, when pre-sman Hogarth was busy working for USC on
Fall   Ball   publicity.
The meeting selected a conimi'tc-
from among its numbers to represent
Ihe whole group when it confers with
the Publications Board this aftern  ,.n
that the Marshall Plan, if implemented, will solve the European
problem". Speakers were judged by
Professors Birney, Hughes, and Read.
Supporting the resolution in the
first debate was Jim Sutherland and
Marion Matheson, who stressed the
need for financial aid to Europe. Me-
Connel and Peterson replied that the
Marshall Plan would, "do as little
good as a blood transfusion lo a body
cut in two parts".
Russ and Chambers upholding the
affirmative, declared the Marshall
Plan a bulwark to prevent the spread
of communism in Europe. Speaking
for the negative side were Hiller and
Keenan, who referred to the Marshall
plot as a temporary stop gap for the
coming economic crises in American
Keenan suggested that the United
Nations should take over the reconstruction of Europe and prevent formation of two armed camps in Europe.
Gerhard Kander, young Canadian
violinist, will present a recital in the
Auditorium on Friday, November 21
at 3:30 p.m. The concert has been
made possible by arrangement with
the Special Events Committee and
admission is free.
UBC 'Hams' Flood
Airwaves In Test
UBC radio "hams"  will  flood the
airwaves over the weekend to take
part  in an  international  "chit chat"
For 20 hours Saturday and Sunday
the radio operators will tap out to
other hams in as many parts of the
continent as they can reach.
Top award goes to the club which
contacts the greatest number of other
operators in distant points.
UBC's "hams" broke their own record last weekend in the first session
of the contest when eight operators
brought in 88 stations throughout the
"UBC expects to log the greatest
number of stations of any club in
Canada," Art Holmes, president of the
club,  declares.
Andrews To Speak
At Legion Meet
Legion members will be addressed
by Dr. Geoffrey Andrews, formerly
nn executive on Canada's Wartime
Information Board and now assistant
to UBC president Dr. MacKenzie, at
a general meeting of Branch 72 tonight at 7 p.m. in Brock Hall.
Members will decide whether to ask
the government for an increase in
veterans educational grants, and arrangement will be made for a delegation to interview Minister of Veterans Affairs, Rt. Hon. Ian MacKenzie,
who is now in the city.

Schuschnigg Speaks Under
Newman Club Auspices
Dr. Kurt Von Schuschnigg finally spoke in the auditorium
last night under the sponsorship of the UBC Newman Club.
This organization stepped in after the AMS withdrew its support following a meeting of presidents of four campus political
clubs Monday noon.
The AMS had originally agreed to*-	
sponsor the one-time Austrian Chan
cellor who had  opposed Hitler  and
guarantee him $250 on the understanding that he was "a figure of historical
The meeting of campus political
heads branded the greying diplomat
a "political speaker' and pointed out
that the AMS was unjustified in sponsoring him, recommending that only
an independent club or organization
should do so.
Meanwhile reports received by
Schuschnigg's local agent and forwarded to the AMS stated that he
would be unable to keep the engagement to speak yesterday noon and
evening because visa difficulties prevented his entering Canada from the
At press time last night Dr.
Kurt von Schuschnigg had just

years in government life I will

Students Attend
Meet On ISS Plans
Montreal, Que. — 18 Nov. — (CUP)
Reversing an age-old practice students at McGill University may soon
be able to hand in reports on the
standings of professors. This was revealed by series of Interviews of Mc
Gill professors most of whom agreed
that such a system would improve
the standard of lectures.
The idea began at the University of
Michigan where the report system is
already being used. Students fill out
report cards on their instructors' presentation of subject matter, lecuring
ability, and clarity of assignments.
Though it was foil that seme pni-
fessors would not live up to .student
criticism, most would bo forced to
maintain a high standard of presentation and an improvement, of the
level of education would result.
Student  Council   heaved  a  sigh  of
relief   and   withdrew   their   support,
pleading  violation   of   contract.
Tuesday morning the agent called
the Brock Hall offices to inform the
AMI that there had been no violation
of contract and that Schuschnigg
would be able to keep his appointment a ter all.
Meanwhile the aging veteran of
Nazi concentration camps sat in his
Hotel Vancouver room and wondered
what was up.
The AMS was adamant in persisting
in their denial and it was not until
the Newman Club, campus organization of Catholic students stepped in
that Schuschnigg got a sponsor.
The Newman Club, however, refused the requested guarantee of $250.

RCMP Rescues
U.S. Delegation
Federal government policy concerning residence of persons of Japanese
birth in British Columbia caused
some unpleasantness recently to IRC
conference officials until the RCMP
came  to  the rescue.
Report in a Vancouver newspaper
yesterday that Lewis and Clark Colleges Portland, were sending two students of Japanese birth in their delegation brought instant action.
Within one hour permits to cross the
Canadian-American border were issued by the RCMP and on their way
to Portland. Fust information of the
RCMP's efficiency reached Allen McGill some hours after the permits had
been  dispatched.

Yesterday morning a car carrying seven
students to their 9:30 lectures came very
close to disaster when it careened through
a 180 degree skid when the right hand wheels
dropped off the edge of the pavement on the
Chancellor Boulevard approach to the University.
The time may now be ripe for a word to
the provincial government department of
University lands which is responsible for the
maintenance of this thoroughfare carrying
in the neighborhood of 1000 automobiles to
and from the campus daily.
The extension of Eighth avenue immediately beyond Blanca streets is itself a death
trap. In fog or at night a stranger might
easily make his contribution to the city's
rising traffic toll if he struck the unpaved,
pot-holed, area at a speed above ten miles
per hour.
The main section of the route, although
well paved, is far too narrow and has not
been properly built up at the shoulders.
In places there is a drop of six inches
at the edge of the asphalt.
These edges should be built up with
gravel to extend back for a distance of at
least three to four feet if passing L to be even
half safe.
A third chief hazard is the unnecessary
kink in the main route where it joins the
Unless corrective steps are taken very
soon the coming of the seasonal fogs will
certainly be attended with a tumble of the
average life expectancy for UBC motorists.
It is indeed gratifying to see that at least
one campus organization has recognized the
opportunity presented through the imminent
marriage of Princess Elizabeth to assist in the
menacing food shortage currently existing in
the United Kingdom.
The UBC Branch 72 of the Canadian
Legion has enlisted its support of the Imperial
Order of the Daughters of the Empire campaign to send food parcels to the people of
the UK as a wedding gift to the princess.
In so doing they have taken the initiative
on the campus,  although  the  Alma Mat^r
Society has since pledged its support through
a motion passed at Monday night's meeting
of the Student Council.
The campus drive opened yesterday when
more than twenty women members of the
Legion and of Alpha Omicron Pi Sorority
reported "very promising" results from their
sale of tags.
It is our sincere hope that a satisfactory
total is reached tonight when all the nickles,
dimes, and quarters, are counted up after
the close of the campaign.
The Children's Hour
Some have been beaten till they know
What wood a cudgel's of by th' blow;
Some kicked until they can feel whether
A shoe be Spanish or neat's leather.
The Nameless Lady had a blackness and
a whiteness and a longness about her; and
those three things are such that we cannot,
even after these seven years, really tell you
today whether her eyes are blue or brown
or hazel, flecked with pure gold. We only
know that they are large and that the Nameless Lady has a rearing-back look about her,
such as you find in fine horses and on certain
days, at certain hours, in mountains.
We had dinner by candlelight with the
Nameless Lady the other evening, at the
Campus Corner. She was seated at the red-
checked table nearest the fireplace. Her hands
rested quietly upon her lap. As she breathed,
the flame of the candle moved slightly, delicately, in an almost imperceptible dance.
"Don't talk", said the Nameless Lady.
"You'll spoil my dinner."
"I'll beat you for that," we said.
"I wish you would" replied the N.L.
"But you won't."
It was true, the N.L. admitted, that women liked to be beaten. No, she didn't know
why, but, she thought the value of a beating
depended in part upon the person who inflicted the punishment. And she felt equally
sure that it wasn't just masoschism, or a
primitive hangover in women.
No, said the Nameless Lady, it wasn't
that she wanted a beating for the sake of
being beaten. It, was something more . . . it
was an expression of something; she didn't
know quite what.
Perhaps women had been beaten for so
many centuries that they felt something was
missing, i fno one laid a rough hand on them.
"Sorry" we told the Nameless Lacly "but
it won't work."
It couldn't possibly work, we told her.
It is one thing for a woman to say "bent
It is quite another thing for a man to
bring  himself  to   do   it.   If  the   thrashing  is
administered in the spirit of fury, and not as
a therapeutic measure, it doesn't count.
If the beating is to serve its purpose, it
must be administered in a calm, scientific, dispassionate manner. And that is why it won't
Because, when the lady says: "Beat me,
daddy" and her loved one draws back his
hairy forearm, squinting his eyes for better
aim, he becomes, in that split sixtieth of a
second, no longer an instrument of his lady's
will, but a marksman taking aim.
And in the same split sixtieth of one
second, the male mind, calculating its target,
finds to its' horror that the blow, if landed
may do, real damage.
If he lets go high, teeth will fly. The
retrousse nose may suffer. If he lets go low,
the wind will certainly escape, and internal
injuries may result.
Worst of all, the lady may burst into

the false from the true, will recognize it as a
"let's pretend" affair, and feel thwarted.
Nor will a spanking do. Spanking", in
movies, may pass for a beating'; in real life,
You are asking for the impossible1, we
said, Granted that women long to be beaten.
But let a man beat them, and he is the wrong
man for them. To administer a real beating,
you must lose your temper; and the man who
loses his temper is at once the beaten, not the
"Funny sort of a conversation" said the
Nameless Lady, smiling at the candle's flame.
"Yes, isn't it" we replied.
"You might use that in your column" she
"Might at that'' we said.
"I don't think you should, though" said
the Nameless Lady.
"Nor do I" we said.
So we won't. Not this time, anyway.
A Hopeful Reply
Dear Sir:
May I reply to the editorial of
November 13, "Speech is Silver"?
The editor voiced three complaints:
1. He complains that some of the
eight finalists for the McGoun Cup
team were not of inter-varsity debating calibre.
2. He complains that the method
of choosing the "hopefuls" is poor,
and recommends that UBC adopt
the system of the University of
3. He complains that the weekly
debates in the Parliamentary
Forum deal too frequently with
political issues.
It is to bo presumed that the edi-
to\\ in all fairness, attended the
finals < n November l'*>, and heard
the speakers who were chosen for
the team. I feel sure that In must.
therefore, agree that, in spite of
the failing of our system at UBC!
and of the shortcomings of the
weekly meetings, Messrs, Chambers, Hiller, Keenan and McConnell are speakers of whom UBC
be very proud.
Tlie editor will no doubt wish
to add his congratulations to those
of the writer—one of the eight
"hopefuls" whose best was not
quite good enough and who is
not ashamed to admit it.
Marion H. Matheson
ED. NOTE: We join with the
writer of the above letter In congratulating the four very fine
speakers who will represent UBC
in the McGoun debates this year.
However, we suggest that they
were debaters of considerable ability and experience before they
ever saw the inside of the Parliamentary   Forum.
The discussion of the try-outs
in the editorial was not directed
as a criticism of any of the speakers or of the Forum official* in
charge, who are making the best
of a bad situation.
It Is the belief of The Dally
Ubyssey that formal debates concerned with topics of a non.poli-
tlcnl nature would better suit
UBC debaters to meet the challenge
of the other western universities
in the McGoun Cup competitions.

Bad Manners
Dear Sir:
I write with reference to the
remarkable exhibition of bad
manners by Gordon Martin, which
appeared amongst the letters tc
the editor of Friday's Ubyssey,
towards Dr. Schuscnigg who, at
the invitation of the AMS, is (o
speak at the university on Tuesday.
I feel that il is hif'h time thai
some expression of opinion was
made in protest against many
persons on the campus and cff.
of all political complexions, who,
in their own particular cause,
seem to think that violent personal
abuse is persuasive a r g u racnl
amongst decent people.
So lamentable is my ignorance
of European politics that I am unaware of what Dr. Schuschnigg
has done, beyond making some
a n ti - c om m u n i s t speeches to
warrant Mr. Martin's violent attack
upon him—but Mr. Martin does
nothing to enlighten me. He simply call him names.
I suppose, as an avowed representative of the "workers of the
world", he feels it incumbent upon
him to make use of the unvarnished language of the proletariat—but
if he thinks that requires him to
behave like an hysterical fishwife,
he does a grave injustice to Canadian labor and outrages the intelligence of the students of this
His letter was a disgrace to his
own cause and to the newspaper
which saw fit to print it.

Donation To ISS
Dear Sir:
Many thanks to the Book Exchange for saving me the trouble
of carrying home unsold books.
When I presented my voucher
for payment I was told about half
of my books had not been sold,
but were not available, as they
had given them to the ISS.
I was under the previous impression that only books unclaimed and not of further use to their
owners were sent to the ISS after
a certain date.
One of my unsold books was a
J4.00 book sold to me by an enthusiastic exchange clerk who assured me it was an assigned text
for Goology 305. It was, however,
only an expensive geography book
and I could only try to get my
money back by putting it up fcr
resale through the exlhange. Now
the exchange has sent it to the
ISS and I have neither the money
nor the book.
I am obviously a sucker, but
what woul you call the Book Exchange?

Glorious Communism
Dear Sir:
As a loyal member of the campus radical set, I am an ardent
supporter of the LPP, the SPC,
the IRC, and the Forestry Club,
and a thwarted member of the
UN Club. Here is my creed:
I believe in Karl Marx, the almighty thinker, creator of the
philosophy of chaos, maker of all
things divisible and indivisible.
And in Lenin and Stalin, his
only legitimately begotten disciples, who were conceived in turmoil, born of a decadent capitalism,
suffered under the Kluaks (who
wen promptly shot), descended
into a paet with capitalism, and
rose again to become saviors of
the world.
1 believe in an unholy secret
police, judge of all people and all
thoughts, in a violent death for
all corrupt capitalists, and in the
glorious strength of communism,
world without end.
I might also include our prayer
"Our ruler who art in Moscow",
but I shall refrain at present as
it might embarass my colleagues
who are trying to join the Newman club in order to elect one of
us president or secretary and thus
forestall any more packing of

Dear Sir:
I would like to take this opportunity of expressing my disgust
at the part-time employment situation of this university.
For considerable time now, I as
a student job hunter have noticed
the prevalence of underpaid selection of odd jobs being presented
ic those who make use of the
Employment Bureau as a medium
oi securing satisfactory part-time
Surely the student who sacrifice;
his study or leisure time to work
is entitled to a minimum wage
rate or reasonable pay for lis
c forts. I feel that jubs being
offered students at 65 cents and
70 cents an hour are we'd
below the common laborer's wage.
These far less than minimum rates
are being paid for day or night
v/ork to students who are working
in "off"  hours.
There are many students amongst
us who are highly skilled in seme
particular trade and are training to
better this standing| There are,
also, veteran students amongst us
who have wide knowledge, experience and skills far above what
the normal working person obtains
in a lifetime. Yet, there is little
for them but pin-setting, garden
jobs, unloading box cars, repairing
clothes lines, raking leaves, etc. at
poor rates of pay for a few hours
of   work.
Surely there are employers who
can use the varied skills of the
many available students here to
great advantage. I feel that we
should throw out these "scab"
jobs. Those who want cheap labor
should not have the opportunity
of turning to universities for such
labor. The Employment Bureau
here should concentrate on a better class of job which we can
and will handle.

Too Far Away-
Dear Sir:
Tlie turning of the sod fur tho
Memorial Gymnasium on Remembrance Day has brought forcibly
to my attention a subject to which
I have given considerable thou;,lit.
'ibis i.s the location of the Gymnasium. I feel badly that I did
not raise this subject before the
decision was finalized.
The objection which I have to
raise is that the present position
will place the Gymnasium at a
considerable distance from the:
center of student activity. For
such an athletic center this is an
important factor to which it is
hoped the committee has given a
great deal of consideration.
I only raise this issue with the
thought that, even though the sod
has been turned, there may be
a slight possibility of re-opening
the subject and choosing a site
closer to the center of student
Michael McCulloch.

American football on the campus has packed up its bags
for another year, and like Khyam's Arabs, has silently stolen
Before the team is altogether forgotten in the upsurge of
basketball enthusiasm, it would perhaps be fitting to show some
public recognition to those who have given much to this
comparatively new sport on the campus.
Mr. Kabat, We Salute You
To Greg Kabat should go a vote of thanks from the student
body as a whole. Kabat has been the recipient of many brickbats
delivered from the fond hands of downtown sportswriters and
armchair quarterbacks (in some cases, the terms are synonymous). Unfortunately, it is only too easy to offer destructive
criticism, and rather difficult to present anything constructive.
Perhaps some of these armchair quarterbacks who get so
much pleasure from belittling the efforts of others have never
heard of the saying that "Rome wasn't built in a day." Perhaps
they don't know what it is to come to a university and find
players who are familiar with only the Canadian Code, and are
woefully inexperienced with American rules. Perhaps they
have forgotten that it was the same Greg Kabat who coached
a Blue and Gold squad to the Hardy Cup championships a short
two years ago. Perhaps it is time they started to remember a
few of these things, and instead of howling for blood, applauded
the progress that has been made.
Good Ol' Johnny
To Johnny Owen we also tip our collective hats. Johnny, in
his role of trainer, has worked wonders getting battered limbs
and bodies back into shape, and has performed invaluable
service behind the scenes. Many a player has been grateful to
Johnny for his ministrations on the tubbing-table.
And Naturally, The Boys
At last we come to the boys. Those men who have gone
out on the field every Saturday for the glory of the Ahna
Mater. They get no privileges, no special exemptions from
classes, only work—hard, grinding work. They are playing
the game for the love of it, not for any financial returns. Athletic
scholarships are unknown to UBC, and our teams Eire composed
of students who accept this fact, and yet are willing to sacrifice
a lot of spare time for the game. That's sportsmanship.
A funny bunch, that team of ours. Even the most rabid
UBC supporter will admit they haven't been any shining lights
this year. But dollars will get you donuts that they will be
out again next year, giving their best for the Blue and Gold,
and with a lot of hard-earned experience under their belts.
Sure, they've lost games, but they gave the fans what they
expected—lots of fight. That's spirit.
Swan Song
So there we have it for another year. Orchids to the coach,
the trainer, and the team—a triumvirate needing all three
components to be successful. They haven't broken any records,
but they have provided the campus with a living example of
sportsmanship, guts, and spirit.
