The largest and tamest Frosh
Smoker ever was completed
without incident Wednesday
night in the spanking-new
Brock Lounge.

proctor BUI Bradshaw of the
nearly 390 orderly Freshmen
who packed the Lounge: "They
acted like little lambs."
Janitorial staff who patrolled
entrances to prevent raids from

stood in bed. Nothing happened.
RIOT AND TEARS
In previous years, tear gas
bombs have been thrown by
redshirts on the balcony into
the crowd below, fire hoses
have been turned on, and
downtown strip-tease artists
have gone down to bare essentials, causing some concern in
Faculty circles.
But this year, Frosh watched
soberly and attentively as fully clothed show-girls from the
Cave Supper Club strutted their
oh-so-proper stuff, and clean-
living UBC Thunderbirds'
coach Frank Gnup urged
everyone over 97 pounds to try
out for the football team.
Other wholesorte entertainment included TUTS comedian
Barney Potts, ami banjo player
Wally  Peters.

RCMP Plans
Crackdown
On Pickups
RCMP officials have started
to crackdown on motorists
picking up hitchhikers at the
university gates as several traffic tie-ups have already resulted there during the morning
rush ^etween eight.o'clock and
eight "forty-five.   . j
"It is definitely illegal to
stop directly inside the gates
to pick up passengers," RCMP
officials said yesterday. "It is
not illegal to hitchhike, only
illegal to stop and pick up a
hitchhiker."
They stressed the fact that
stopping is illegal only within
the first hundred yards inside
the gates.
"We will not bother anyone
who stops further in than this."
Within the city limits, however, it is illegal to hitchhike
but not illegal for a driver to
pick up a hitchhiker.
"We are not concerned with
hitchhikers outside the gates
on tenth avenue," continued
the RCMP, who are provincial
police..
Vancouver city police stated
that hitchhikers are liable to a
fine if they are hitchhiking off
the curb.
RCMP made it clear that
they are not against hitchhiking except when it leads to
traffic congestion, as it does at
the gates during the early
morning rush.
Several motorists have already been stopped by the
Mounties, who warn that stricter enforcement of the law will
be necessary if drivers persist
in stopping directly inside the
gates.
Beginning today as another
helpful service, the friendly
people's Ubyssey will carry

Over sixty clubs sported
signs and booths, members
wearing every costume from
Alpine mountain togs to Chinese traditional dress.
While the Radio & Televl-
sion Society on campus de* -
manded recruits' attention on
loudspeakers the Critic's Circle
merely assumed its most critical and supercilious attitude,
gaining thirty-five members in
the effort.
Jim' McFarlane, now head of
the LPP Club, boasted that
LPP sold over six dollars in
literature, as well as signing
up several budding new political leaders.
CCF reported a poor showing, but the Liberals managed
to keep an interested crowd
around its booth.
One of the most successful
campaigns was staged by the „
Civil Liberties Union, which
gained a 200 percent increase
over last year. President Al
Forrest remarked on the showing "great . . . even the engineers signed up!"
Music circles stole many ef

Stockholders Report
Every so often we feel it appropriate to remind you that
since you pay for this paper through your AMS fees it is
your paper. And many of you must be wondering what is
happening to it this year.
Well to be quite frank we aren't quite sure what is happening ourselves. We have decided this year to change the
size and format of The Ubyssey. It is now what it known as
a "tabloid." Tuesday's paper will be eight pages; Thursday's
four pages; and Friday's eight pages. But we are still in the
experimental stage and for a while at least each paper may
appear radically different than its predecessor.
We feel we should also tell you that although you are
now getting a bigger paper it is costing you about one-half as
much as it did two years ago. As a result of handling our own
advertising sales the cost of the paper has droped from two
dollars to one dollar per student.
The paper is yours and we would like to know what
you think of it and what you want. The "Letter to the Editor
Column" and the "Guest Editorial" column are for your use.
We are not swamis and we cannot know what you think
ahd want of us until you let us know.
Every student should get a Ubyssey since there are 5000
copies printed and there are 13 distribution points. If you
think our distribution is bad let us know.
Many of you have complaints but they won't be remedied
until we hear about them.
jL REVOLT   OR   PERISH
Common Sense
There are certain times and places where a certain law
may be of more benefit to the public by being ignored rather
than enforced.
Stopping on a public highway to pickup hitchhikers is
against the law, University Boulevard is classed as a public
highway and the RCMP have been cracking down on motorists
who stop at the University gates each morning to pickup the
hordes of hitch-hiking students who congregate there.        •
If the RCMP continue their campaign they will be doing
little else than creating an unnecessary hardship for hundreds of students.
There is room on University Boulevard for two cars to
travel abreast. So a car that stops to pick up students is not
blocking traffic entering the gates. We would suggest that an
area immediately inside the gates be marked off similar to
a bus-stop where cars may stop to pick up passengers.
We realize that the RCMP are just doing their duty but
they would be doing the university public a far greater service by turning their backs on this particular law.
aechsel Calls for
Revolt To Halt Communism
By GERARD DAECHSEL
1955! We stand at a fork In the road, like ostriches, with heads buried in the sand even
though we sense the approach of zero hour. Which road shall we take or shall we go on
..standing till at zero hour we blow up?
One road is world communism. Has history ever before witnessed a political force and
Ideal spread over a big part of the globe in less than a generation? We've put our trust in
boundary lines, weapons, Jet aeroplanes and nuclear bombs; in the assumed superiority of
our life and political and religious ideas. If we realize that there is no security in these, why
do we continue to expend our chief energies in the arms, race and continues to propagandize the ideas we really don't apply literally to our own lives? We now put too little faith In
the individual—his mind and moral potential, boasting that we put H all in God. In the mean*
time communism slices off another country, a few more millions. It gains more converts.
Two years ago we said if
Indo-China, the bread-basket of
South-East Asia fell, there was
slim chances of saving the rest
of Asia. We had to let half of it
go last year and only the most
drastic Ilth hour moves will
save the rest. To the Indo-Chinese Bao Dai relaxing on the
French Riviera and corruption untold in his Government
at home is no alternative to
independence under Ho Chi
Mih who at least stays at home
and leads.
Ignore all the propoganda.
Communism succeeds. Compare
any country, even China today with the mess it was pre
Communist days. Even western
correspondents admit it. There
are few flies in Chinese streets,
a phenomenal accomplishment
in Asia. True, Communism sacrifices the spiritual in man but
it frees him from enslavement
to the basic calamaties: starvation, disease .poverty and ignorance.
CHANGE SYSTEM
Can our present system
work? Can it provide man's
material wants and still leave
him free? Frankly, no; not
even with alterations or re-
enforcements. Our failures are
proved by communism's successes and these facts. In 1939,
38% of the world's population was underfed. 14 year3
later in 1953 the percentage
had reached 60%. Meanwhile
we raise our living standards
higher and higher and pile up
surpluses of food. When will
our clergymen begin preaching
against the sin of food for
millions bursting our graineries
in order to keep prosperity
for ourselves? Another fact
that should be painfully clear
to Economics 200 students—the
speed which industry can be
expanded and living standards
raised depends on what percentage of the national income
is saved from immediate consumption and re-invested. In
Russia it has been 20%, in
China 10%, in India, where
democracy is on trial it's 5%
and in  Indonesia   it's  3.8%.
But there is an alternative to Communism. To many
it is as revolutionary and distasteful as Communism. It is
a revolution within the individual, a voluntary Communism. Humanitarianism
or in its pure sense—Christianity. It's a combination of
a hard head and a soft heart.
It - envolves realism, rationalism and sensitiveness
taken to the last extreme.
It works out in dollars and
cents, in hours and minutes,
in thought and deed. When
as individuals we use our
reason, we will realise the
logic of three of Christ's
teachings and will apply
them literally—"love your
enemies." "those who taket
up the sword perish with the.
sword"   and  "who  is  my
neighbour." We will have to
discard our personal greeds
and selfishness, our ambition
for power and social prestige;
our blind addiction to traditions and customs, our narrow  nationalism,   our   religious bigotry.
When we revolutionize ourselves, we will stop pouring
billions and billions of dollars
into armaments, excessive alcohols, cigarettes, unnecessary
automobiles, styles and fads of
clothing,   cosmetics,   diamond
rings, jewelry, fur coats, and
one can go on until we eliminate all the shallow and unnecessary   things  for  which  we
now strive.  What will we do
for defence? Christ, and more
recently   Ghandi   showed   the
difficult   but   really   effective
system.   In   the   H-Bomb   age
there is no defence in physical
armaments   anyway.
Our gigantic and vast industrial machine could be geared
to turning out agricultural and
industrial machinery for Asian
development, building ships to
transport these goods and our
surplus foods across the seas
and the millions of immigrants
to our large empty lands. Our
whole economy could be directed to these. Thus we would
have to live rationally without
giving up the positive -amenities of our civilization, and to
the world we could give and
give. The. successful man must
feel inspired to re-invest in
humanity all he has exploited
and the unfortunate with better facilities and a healthier
example from above could elevate himself.
CALLOUSNESS
But such irresponsiblity as
this is rampant today. With
brute callousness students joke
about Asia needing "less bread
and lots more rubber." A professor ridicules the old maids
who sell contracetpives to the
ignorant Indians. Rather the
sneering "educated" should be
rising above some of their social fantasies and have their
fun and dancing at something
less   extravagent   than   lavish
"Junior Proms" and then donate the money saved to educating the Indians and pro*
viding the birth control devices which the poor Indian
masses can't even afford now.
There is another example ot
unnecessary extravagence and
wast. It is our community competitions in church building
and parish halls.
The church's educational
work could be carried on in
school buildings which aren't
occupied Sundays and evenings. Church societies could use
community halls. Several de*
nominations could Join in worshipping in one structure at
staggered hours. Thus co-op
eration would provide better
facilities for all and save millions of dollars to alleviate
world suffering.
PERSONAL  CHALLENGE
So   the   challenge   is  yours
and mine, not only years hence
when you use your education
to serve humanity but today—
those dimes and dollars you so
loosely  throw around. Every-
time you spend a cent remember  that  $1   feeds  a  Korean
child   a   basic   diet  of  salted
codfish for two months. Then
ask yourself whether your physical  or mental  well-being  is
really furthered  by  that cup
of coffee, that poor movie, or
whether your Korean brother
needs food for survival more.
What happens if we refuse
either revolution, if we remain at the fork in the road?
We will finally havt to resist  Communism  in  a war.
How   and   why   it   will   be
fatal  would  make  material
for   another  article.  If  you
do not undertake this revolution of yourself you are going  to become  a pessimist.
That is if you have the self-
pride   to  realise   you   were
put on this earth for something more than just the animal   functions.

Ten Years of Snipping
JERRI ADAMS
By SHIRLEY KINO
Peter Van Dyke, affable,
white-blond haired barber who
operates a three-chair shop in
the basement of Brock Hall, is
celebrating his tenth anniversary at UBC this week.
After crew-cutting, bogie-
cutting and just-plain-cutting
students' hair for ten years,
Peter observes that the young
people are more "optimistic"
than the older generation.
LIKES WORK
"That is why I like to work
with young people. They have
enthusiasm for the future," he
said.
When most people get into
the barber's chair, they start
to talk. He said older people
became nostalgic about the
past. "I figure the past is a
good subject to stay away
from."
Usually the students discuss
their girl friends, summer jobs
and study troubles, he said.
For Peter, barbering began
as a hobby while he lived on a
farm in Manitoba. He experimented on high school pals but
was reticent to take barbering
seriously because "I didn't feel
there was enough money in it".
"I haven't discovered yet if
there is enough money in it."
SATISFACTION
He compared barbering to
painting: "Every time you complete something, a feeling of
satisfaction and appreciation
comes over you."
Some 25 years of professional barbering has made Peter
an   authority  on  haircuts   as
PETER DYKE
—Photo by John Robertson
well as people. He said men
wore shorter haircuts now than
ever before.
"The bogie-cut, initiated by
zoot-suiters, is becoming more
popular and more respectable,"
he said. He described the cut
as "flat on top with the side-
hair long and combed back into a ducktail."
Although Peter has been settled in the basement of Brock
for 10 years, it is only a "temporary" place for his business.
He is waiting for the Brock to
be extended and hopes to move
into better quarters within a
year.
Peter finds that the most
gratifying experience working
at UBC is meeting people from
all over the world. He says ho
speaks "Dutch, German, and a
little bit of English."

Ticket sales to date have
been relatively poor, despite
the sharp increase yesterday.
Advance tickets will be on sale
all day at the AMS offices and

Price is $1 a couple for Frosh
and $1.50 per twosome for uppers. Jeffery laid emphasis
on the fact that upperclassmen
are as welcome to attend as
freshmen.
Members of the UBC Thunderbirds and the McGill Red-
men, who are still able to walk
will be in attendance.
Reception for faculty members and other officials takes
place in the officers' mess.
Refreshments in the form of
donuts and cokes will be served
by members of the Women's
Undergraduate Society.
Somewhere in the neighborhood of 2000 to 2500 persona
are expected to take in the
Saturday frolic. Jeffery attributes this to the fart that with
Jerri Adams, AMS has the biggest drawing card in history of
the Frosh reception. Archives  Photos  Show 38 Years of Growth, Progress

Highest for Visual Arts Trophy
The Varsity Outdoor Club won the Visual Art Club
trophy for their booth on Club Day Thursday.
The VOC booth consisted of a tent pitched on the
lawn in front of the Armouries, an information booth inside and numerous colorfully dressed mountineers scaling
the building. Club members pinned snow covered badges
on all who inquired at the booth.
Judges were Prof. B. C. Binning, well known artist
and professor of Fine Arts, Ron Longstaffe, AMS Vice-
President, and John Williams, president of the Visual
Arts Club.
Second prize winner was the Dance Club. The award
was given on the basis of organization, selection of material,
performance and originality. VOC will be presented with
the trophy at the next University Clubs Committee meeting on September 29th.

UBC Player's Club will scrap plans for their annual
Spring plays, and Instead, join hands as equal partners with
the English Department Dramatic Workshop to produce a
series of plays in January honoring the hundredth anniversary
of the birth of George Bernard Shaw.
The two dramatic groups
will unite to produce "Back
to Methuselah", a play-series
by Shaw.
"Back to Methuselah" ls five
plays in ope, and its presentation, even in condensed form,
will be one of the largest theatrical events ever undertaken
at the University. It is expected
the production will run two
nights, the curtain rising at
6:30 both evenings.
This production will be an
excellent chance for those interested in scenery, costume,
lighting, etc. to learn under the
guidance of professional advisors, and at the same time to
contribute to an outstanding
event.
Dorothy Somerset, University worshop director, will supervise the production, and
Thursday, urged everyone, including old members of the
players club, new members,
or even non-members, to turn
out for the casting of "Back
to Methuselah" in the University Auditorium.
Rehearsal and casting times
are as follows:
Monday. Sept.  26,  2:30-5:30
for old members of the Players
Club and for members of the
student body at large.
Wednesday. Sept. 28, 1:30 •
4:00 for students trying-out for
Player's Club membership, and
on the same day from 4:00-
5:00 for members of the student body at large.
Friday, Sept. 30, 1:30-3:30
for students trying-out for
Player's Club membership, and
on the same day from 3:30-
5:00 for members of the student body at large.
Needy Clubs
AMS treasurer Geoff Con*
way has announced a new system of alloting funds to cam*
pus clubs, designed to increase
their activity and efficiency.
"The initial budget alloted
will be sufficient to cover the
absolute needs of the club," he
stated.
At the beginning of the second term, a second and supple*
mentary allocation may be
made. The second sum is not
an additional budget, Conway
explained, but a contingency
fund.
MUST PROVE NEED
"It will be distributed to
those organizations that have,
by their activity, demonstrated
a need for increased financial
support."
To receive such added sup*
port, a club "must maintain
a proper level of activity
during the first term, and de*
monsirate ability to manage
funds efficiently."
Conway also pointed out that
proper procedures must be followed by clubs on all functions
and requisitions for purchases,
or otherwise be liable to a $5
fine or suspension of budget.

Gnupmen Seek
First Bowl Game
Win Saturday
'■ At 2 p.m. Saturday in the UBC Stadium Prank Gnup
will officially unveil the 1955 edition of the Thunderbirds
before 8000 onlookers as the Birds tackle the fearsome McGill.
Redmen in the Paraplegic Bowl football game.
. Larry • SuUivan   arrived   in   " "       ~~~
Vancouver with his team last
night and was met at the airport by many civic and university officials
Losers to McGill by 22-8 and
8-3 scores in the two previous
Paraplegic games, Frank Gnup
has announced a starting lineup of six lettermen and six
newcomers.
SURPRISE
- The big surprise was the
choice of Ron Stewart, who
has eeen action at center and
end, to fill the fullback spot.
Gnup has decided to sacrifice
some experience in the line in
an effort to bolster his fullback
problem.
<Birds will have a brother
act in the backfield with Ian
Stewart getting the nod at
quarterback over Roger Kronquist, who will see only limited action due to injuries.
The Bird backfield will be
rounded out by veterans Don
Spence and Bruce Eagles at
right and left half respectively,
and newcomer Tony Pantages
at flying wing.
In the line are Buz Hudson
and Bob Homola at ends, Kevin O'Connell and Dan Lazosky
at tackles, Bill Crawford and
Gerry   O'Flanagan  at  guards,
and Charlie Kules at center.
LINE GOOD
Although the starting -line
looks good, the lack of depth
and experience among the reserves has Coach Gnup and assistant Bob Hindmarch plenty
worried.
McGill Redmen claim they,
will have the heaviest line in
the Eastern Intercollegiate
League this season and will
outweigh the lightweight Bird
line by many pounds. Spearheading the Redmen front wall
are huge 250 pound tackle
Art McCabe and center Ron
Murphy, a former McGill most
valuable player on their intermediate squad.
McGill has a veteran power-
packed backfield with the only
newcomer its star, quarterback
Dick Carr.
Rounding out the Redmen
backs are Captain Bob Hutchison and Bob Perry at the halfs
and crushing 190 pound Joe
Cronin at fullback.
Tickets are now on sale at
Hick's Ticket Bureau and the
War Memorial Gym.
The Varsity soccer team promises to be the most successful
since the 50-51 season when
UBC last built a sparkling
championship team.
Thirty-five players turned
out for the soccer practice yesterday, manv with previous experience on well-known soccer
teams. Practice attendance has
increased in recent years but
most amazing this year is the
number of high calibre players
who turned out. Besides the six
returning lettermen, the Birds
have on hand equally well-
known names including Clive
Hughes, Sievert Erickson and
Prank Lacobucie, all former
coast league players, Also turning out and showing very good
form is Larry Anderson of the
V and D league. Two players
from the West. Indies, Frank
Sealy and Ralph Phelps, have
also turned out to help produce
a championship team. Another
boy from Jamaica, Fred Green,
is showing well and will surely
help the team.
The old .stalwarts of the team
from last season include team
captain Bud Frederickson, vice-
captain Jack Buttcrficld, Ian
Todcl, Ted Smith and George
Jack.
One of last years' classy forwards. Bruce Ashdown, at present with the New Westminster
Royals in Montreal, battling
for the Canadian Championship, was unavailable for comment on whether he will return to the Birds.
This year should be the turning point in Varsity's soccer
history. Hopes are high and the
boys are confident of success.
Regular practices are held
Tues.  and Thurs. at 4:30 p.m.
DONN SPENCE
Talented
Australian
Joins Staff
Lost in the maze of publicity
that surrounded the arrival of
Frank Gnup as football coach
is the appointment of Peter Mullins as head track and field
coach and Jack Pomfret's Thunderbird basketball assistant.
Mullins, a 29-year-old . Australian, brings an impressive record with him to. Btrdvllle. He
was a member of the 1*948 Australian Olympic team, when he
finished sixth in the decathalon,
and also on the 1950 British Empire games squad.
BASKETBALL STAR
An all-round athlete, Mullins
played both basketball and track
while attending Washington
State College. Although neyer
haying played the game before,
Mullins quickly developed into
a star center at WSC. In track
and field he specializes in the
high and low hurdles.
Last year Mullins taught physical education at Entiat, Washington high school.
Mullins is a welcome addition
in what appears to be a determined effort to bring better
coaching to UBC athletic teams.
