SCHOLARLY TOUCH FOR
COUNCIL MONDAY NIGHTS
In future Student Council will wear academic gowns
during their Monday night meetings.
In the past, student government heads have pontificated
in their ordinary campus clothes in the Board Room in
Brock Hall Monday night.
"It will make us feel scholarly," said Kay McDonald,
secretary of the AMS.
Meager '49 Budget
Passed By Council
With but one dissenting vote, Student Council has passed
Walt Ewing's austerity-ridden budget*
Budget wil! come up for ratification before general AMS
meeting in the stadium October 4.
Gouges such as payment of the War Memorial Gym debt
and increased salary expenses to pay for the AMS business
manager have chopped th ebudget to a low of $68,231.
Architects Offices Scene Of
Signing Of Contracts  For Gyffi
AMS funds that are available for
various activities on the campus will
be some $10,000 less than last year.
Publications and Men's Athletic
Directorate are both governed by fixed costs but figures for both these
organizations have been cut as close
to the survival point as possibly, Ewing
pointed out.
PAID IN FULL
By the conclusion of the 1949-50
term the AMS should have the War
Memorial Gym debt paid in full plus
$5000 in working capital in the bank.
Gym debt was reduced last year by
$10,000 with the austerity budgeting
of AMS treasurer Paul Plant.
A higher enrolment may result in
some organizations receiving more of
a subsidy. Final registration figures
are not yet available from the bur-
sur's office and will not be released
for several weeks.
NO MONEY
Undergraduate   societies   would   receive   $163,000   in   subsidies   if   Ewing
met   their submitted   budgets.   As   the!
appi-oved budget stands, some groups j
will  take a.s  much  as 52  percent  cut.
No    political,    religiull:,    or    within-
faculty groups have been allotted a
subsidy. This means that the Engineers Undergraduate Society will be
allotted money, but there will be
none for the groups included under
them.
Activities such as symphony concerts and entertainment which appeared here regularly previously will
be' entirely eliminated.
Correction
In n story which appeared in The
Ubyssey Tuesday, Miroslav Fit, DP
student now on the campus, was
said to be n member of the communist party.
Tlie Uby.ssey regrets the error
that nccurcd and hopes that it has
not caused Mr. iFic any embarrassment.
The paragraph should have read,
"Fie, himself, n member of the
Benes party, says the Benes government would he the right wing
of the labor party if compared to
our standards,"
KOD YOUNG
Rod Young
Back at UBC
By DAVID HUMMEL
Socialist Rod Young is .back
on the campus after a resounding defeat in his bid for reelection to the House of Commons in the June election.
Registered in first year Law, Mr.
Young stated that he is "looking forward i'o giving Mr. Ralph .Catnpney
the thrashing of his life in the next
election." Mr. Campney, Liberal
member from Vancouver Centre,
polled over fifty per cent more votes
than Young in the last election. Rod
observed that after teh three-year
Law course it would be just about
time for another election.
In the June, 1948 by-election in
Vuncouvc t'Centre Young triumphed
over Campney and the Conservative
candidate and thus sai' in Ihe last
session   of   tlie   House   of   Commons.

A Small Price To Pay
^the Arts Undergraduate Society - nominally tlBC's largest undergraduate society -
is,JWWMy in need of a revival movement.
& tfSC Chairman Bill Haggart is frankly
worried about the degenerate state of this
monster organization. Last year, \he Society
sank to a new low in undergraduate affairs.
If a president was elected he very soon
got lost in the shuffle.
Haggart, with the zeal of a missionary,
has set the wheels of regeneration in motion.
On the AMS budget is a grant of $200 for
the organization.
The USC chairman has appointed a temporary committee to manage Arts atfairs
until such time as the faculty can be brought
to elect an executive.
the task, naturally, is one fraught with a
great many obstructions, the greatest among
then* being the diversity of student interests.
The anthropology student has little in common with the physics students.
Students on the campus may view with
some misgivings the grant of $200 to the
AUS, particularly when the group is non-1
existent as yet. Students are likely to V*e%
with alarm a grant to any organisation whifch;
has been virtually defunct foi- a ftumber frf
years.
Chairman Haggart however, is hot look" i
ing at past records, but at i'he .potentialities
AUS has as an organized group. There is
no doubt that within their tanks lies the
nuclues of a dynamic cafiipus society.
Artsmen have too long chose« to toufy
their heads in the sand and let the test
ol the campus roll by. Their interest in reorganizing into a healthy, sound campus group
will bear testament to their interest in campus affairs.
Two hundred dollars is a small price to
pay for the organizing of UBC's largest
undergraduate faction. We think it can't be
bought cheaper.
Wanted *-An Explanation
Something is radically wrong with our
bookstore.
/As in past years it is already beginning
to run out of books. No excuse in terms of
pa£er  shortages  can  be  offered   this  year.
**&Bfotblishers are more than willing to supply
*M1- the  books  the  public   will  buy.  Over-
Iftiousness is the only explanation we can
* fincGdfor the shortage.
Surely the management has been in busi-
long enough to be able to make a rough
estimate of the number of books required—
and enough courage to buy a few more than
the estimated, just in case.
"Substantial savings" are promised stu
dents who patronize the store. Yet prices are
no lower than in off-campus stores. Where
did this mythical saving go to?
Moreover, since the convenience of a campus location induces most students to buy
here, off-campus stores have largely discontinued handling college texts. Thus students
are left holding the bag—or a large patch of
nothingness to be more exact—when the
bookstore bungles.
An enlargement of premises and an
increase in staff were certainly needed this
year. No effort seems to have been made
to provide these.
Let's have an explanation.
Wh
eres
Our Two-Headed Cow?
An extremely complex and expensive
department of experimental cattle breeding
has been established at UBC.
Long and involved experiments have
been carried out over a period of years.
Yesterday, the fruit of one of the experiments
—a calf—was produced.
Did it have two heads? Did it have three
sets of udders? Did it have equipment to
produce milk from gravel? Did it even pro
duce margerine instead of butter? No!
It was, alas, perfectly normal.
Surely we can do better than this. Surely
our department of dairying is not entirely
devoid of imagination.
Our citizens expect more of them. Unless something is done UBC will be spoken
of as the university which is still in the
middle ages. Normal cows are hopelessly
outdated.
what's
going on
By Boh Russel
While The Sun Shines       By Vk Hay
The other day, while I was admiring the j
current trends in sweaters on the campus, '
I was haield by a rather rich friend, whom
I loathe. I could tell by the smirk on his face
that his parents, who, incidentally, are loaded, <
had just given him another expensive gew- \
gaw.
"Hi, Curly," he said, "just had a Toni?" ,|
Then he fell to the ground rolling over and «
over in a paroxysm of mirth. »J
k'l waited until he had recovered from the _
effects of his little joke, then grated, "very ]
funny, and what, pray, did your parents just
give you?" *Ulfl; '
Unimpressed by my acute powers of observation, he wiped the tears of laughter
ir|m his eyes, held his aching sides, put
on a fresh smirk, and replied, "A typewriter,
a ^beautiful big typewriter."
I let out a wild shout of laughter, and
soon was rolling about the ground in a
paroxysm of mirth, while my friend, sorely
perplexed by my behaviour, went in search
of Dr. Black.
But you see, I know all about typewriters. I own one and I hate it, the vicious
little beast, and I know that my humorous
rich friend will .soon have a nasty disposition
and a peptic ulcer, just like me.
1 used to regard my typewriter as a sort
of mechanical Pygmalion and I had great
hopes for her. But she is still cheap, ugly,
noisy, and uncooperative. She's older, too.
I waste hour after hour in her company. I
tell her -interesting stories, she replies with
dull ones; I regale her wilh ideas of sparkling originality, she replies with platitudes.
Sin- yets my in trouble with jwofessors and
editors and keeps me up late at nights. 1 buy
her yards of ribbon and she still looks shabby.
She does nothing for me even when she's
. well-oiled. I hate her.
Oh, I was a fool to have had anything
to do with her. I brought her into my house
only as a favor to her former master.
"Take her off my hands, pal," he said,
"she's a sweet little job but I've just acquired
one I like better."
I thought that she was a little plain,
and said so.
"I think she's a little plain," I said.
"So what?" the wretch replied, "she's
really built, stand a lot of knocking around,
that one, take my word for it."
Well, I took his word for it, the liar.
She's a Jezebel. Half the Publications Board
have had her out, and have done very well
for themselves by her. One of them took her
out Tuesday night and didn't bring her back
till Wednesday.
"She's a bit of allright," he said with a
leer, "when can I have her again?"
That did it. I resolved at that very instant
to put an end to her foolishness for once
and for all. Accordingly, after dinner last
night, I strode into the living room, where
she was sitting insolently on the table waiting
for me. With the firm intention of bringing
the whole situation under serious discussion,
I pulled up a chair and sat down facing
her. She was cold and silent. For a few
moments I couldn't think of anything to
say — you know how it is. I lit a cigarette,
looked at her steadily, but somehow, the
words just wouldn't come. After what seemed an hour, I began, rather lamely,
"The other clay "
STAGE: Canada is witnessing a

Faculty and Alums Backed Scheme
For War Memorial Gym from Start
Students started building their gym in earnest during the
1945-46 term.
Termed the "hall of heroes," it was to be built on the
corner of Wesbrook Crescent and University Boulevard. Plans
also included ?. $10,000 expenditure for landscaping playing
fields stretching from University Boulevard to Chancellor.
In the first year of the campaign most people thought the
students were looking at castles in the sky when they pledged
the collection of $100,000 for the Gym Fund.
Students proved them wrong.
-   They  planned  a  "mile  of  quarters,"  kissing  sales,  milk
bottle funds and giant public campaigns for raising thc needed
thousands of dollars.
First reference to the building of a war memorial gymnasium was made at a Student Council meeting on November
26, 1945.
Instigators of the plan were AMS President Alan Ains-
Worth and Treasurer Gary Miller who were in office in 1945-46.
Student administration over the years have been behind the
campaign with full force. UBC Alumni Association and faculty
have put their whole weight into the campaign from its start.
Association To Aid
UBC Radio Society
Society Members On Probation;
Must Make Productions Good
UBC Radio Society is being aided by B. C. Association of
Broadcasters.
Offer was made by Dorwin Baird,
one of original founders of Radsoc,
and president of BCAE'.
Society members were asked to
make their productions good, 'not
halfhearted." Baird volunteered any
help that his organization could offer.
He is production manager of a local
radio station.
Suggested form of this year's productions are a roundtable discussion

Don Cunliffe, Radio Society president told the club meeting that "the
voice of UBC sometimes sounds as if
it ha.s larengitis" but it always comes
out.

THE UBYSSEY
Thursday, September 29, 1949
ICE
LINES
By   HERM   FRYDENLUND
The true significance of the announcement that the Thunderbird
hockey squad would play Senior A
calibre hockey this season can be
realized only by a careful perusal
of the struggles and handicaps encountered and overcome since its
inception.
Hockey began on
the campus as a
minor sport in
the thirties and
spent several seasons with but
mediocre success
■ while playing in
la second - rate
'commercial setup. The sport died out entirely
during the war years. The year
1944 marked the amazing comeback
which has now placed this sport
as the most successful and consistent on the campus.
The first post-war season spent
in a local commercial league which
was led by the 'Bird squad but
neither the league nor thc locals
recorded any marked success.
Juniors in 1946
The Thunderbird squad of 1946
was entered in a local junior loop
encompassing Nanaimo, New Westminster, Vancouver, and UBC. That
season marked the emergence of
the campus pucksters as an outstanding university hockey squad.
The top players on that squad were
Fred Andrew, Stu Johnson and
Hugh Berry.
The 1947 squad exceeded all expectations with the enrolment of
such top senior calibre* players as
Bob Koch, Haas Young, and Wag
Wagner. These stars combined with
Terry Nelford, Bob Saunders, and
Lloyd Torf»son brought this school
new honors. That season saw the
squad enter top quality inter-collegiate competition with tremendous success.
Successful Season
1948 will go into the records as
the most successful season in UE'C
hockey history. The aforementioned stars were aided by sensational
newcomers as Don Adams, Clare
'Drake, Gunnar Bailey, Bob Lindsay, and Ken Hodgert. The addition of these prairie pucksters made
the squad the class of the tough
Senior "B" league.
The season ended on a sour note
as the 'Birds were disqualified for
refusing to play five of the first
sik playoff games at Nanaimo.
This season will mark the last
step of hockey's steady climb into
the sport spotlight at this university. The team will now play Allan
Cup calibre hockey against high-
class teams throughout B.C.
The team deserves the support of
every student in this, the crucial
season for hockey glory.
New Rules Set
For Mural Play
Women's intramurals, after
several weak years, may get
a new lease on life. Any group
of campus women may organize a team to play in intramurals
it was decided at Tuesday's
general WAA meeting in an
amendment to the constitution.
First organizations to enter under
the new ruling will probably be the
Greeks who have long been a potent
force   in   men's   intra-murals.
WAD members made it plain, however, that women need not play under
a club banner but may form an independent groups for intra-mural sport
purposes only.
The motion, proposed from the floor,
passed unanimously after discussion
clarified  its wording.
Details of the new system are "Vi
be worked out by Shirley Col' nan,
intra-murals organizer, and otncr directorate members.
Constitutional changes proposed by
the executive and passed unanimously
by tho more than two hundred women
present provided for election of a
vice-president and enlarging the WAD
to   include   team   managers.
Elected to fill the new office wa.s
Arts student Jo Castillioti.s who will
act as WUS-WAA liason officer and
handle  WAA  public  relations.
The executive asked for and was
granted authority to seek a successor
to Dr. Joyce Ilallamnre, chosen last
year as '-1!)-."i0 faculty advisor, who
has had to curtail her .u livilics for
health reasons.
Braves, Chiefs
Both in Senior A
Hoop League Now
Two UBC teams will be entered  in  Senior  A  Basketball
this year.
It was originally thought only one
Varsity squad would play in the city
league this year. The new arrangements were made when two new
Veams entered made league lopsided
with  seven  teams.
UBC asked to put another team of
Senior A abilities on the floor. This
means that both Chiefs and Braves
will be competing again in high
company.
New arrangements were made at
liner A Basketball meeting Tuesday
night.
Two new teams completing the
eight team setup are Artie Club and a
team   from  YMCA.
Both Chiefs and Braves were in
Senior A company last year, Early
speculation was that only one team
would put on Senior A strip because
last year's teams did not fare so well
against   downtown   talent.
Senior A games are included in
Privilege Pass gains. Privilege Passes
are en sale in Graduate Manager of
Athletics office.
Luke Moyls Voted
Hoop President
Luke Moyls, past Graduate Manager
of Athletes at UBC and Sports Editor
of Daily Ubyssey before his graduation, was elected president of the
Inter A Basketball League Tuesday
night at a meeting of the organization.
Moyls held the post of secretary last
season.
Vice-president is Joe Polly, treasurer Bert Edwawls, and secretary is
Gordy McDonald.
Thunderbird Club
Pep Club Hides
Under New Name
To promote spirit by getting
a greater number of fans cheering at UBC football games, the
Thunderbird Club is being organized.
It is hoped that a sufficient number will join to form the nucleus of
a large cheering section, and members
of the club will learn all thc yells and
lead  the cheering.
Many fans are afraid to cheer said
Denis Pierce who, along with Ruth
Genis, will not be cheorleading this
year. "But with a group who knows
the yells leading the cheering, other
fans will be encouraged to join in,"
Denis said.
Miss Pierce further said that enthusiasm for promoting spirit is particularly high among the freshmen and
it is hoped that many will join this
club.

Golf Champs Prepare
For Titles Again
Plans for UBC's Golf team this year are already going ahead
to have another championship team when they play host to the
Evergreen Conference matches next spring.
Four of last year's teams are again*' '—
attending UBC and have voiced their
FRIDAY
AT THE
intentions of competing in the Evergreen title rounds as well as taking
part in other scheduled and proposed
matches.
3 TOP GOLFERS BACK
Doug Bajus, Pete Bentley, and Don
E'odie.'all members of the Championship Evergreen Conference that swept
the title matches at Spokane last
May, are slated to participate in this
year's activities, as well as Bob Esplen.
Organization of the club is underway and by the look of things, more
top calibre divot diggers will be produced this year.
At Indian Canyon links last May 27
and 28, the power team of Bajus,
Bentley, and Bodie, finished up in a
tie with College of Puget Sound with
a total score of 238.
B.C. CONDITIONS
Playing the second day under conditions more familiar to UBC golfers,
plenty of rain and wind, the team
made a fine effort to defend it's
championship with a total of 220, 17
under the nearest team to win the conference title.
Peter Bentley made a one-under-
par 71, the only man at the conference to break the par.
Doug Bajus finished with a 73 to
take medalist honors for the total
score. E'odie rounded out the 220 total
with a 76, only being topped by his
team-mates.
TRY FOR NEW TITLE
This season, as well as acting as host
for the Evergreen play, UBC will attempt for the first time to take the
Champs. Chances are good since the
title of Canadian Intercollegiate
title has been won in the last three
years by scores of 78 and up,
