"Cause of the latest atudenf protest against McCarthy and Mc-
Cormick was the burning in
effigy of Sen. McCarthy by Vic*

Much support was found at
UBC for the effigy-burning.
Some students here hinted that
effigies of'both McCarthy and
McCormick may be burnt on the
UBC campus.
For the efflgyJburninR McCormick's Chicago Tribune, noted for its anti-Red, anti-English
and anti-Canadian tendencies,
called the Toronto students "illogical and depraved."
UBC students were quick to
answer a Time Magazine report
that McCarthy said he "would
be glad to go to Canada" to investigate communists.
"McCarthy's w 11 ch - hunting
methods are fascist," Ray Logie,
Social Problems Club president
"The Canadian people don't
want McCarthy or his type in
Canada," he conttinued.
"Fortunately for the civil liberties of Canadians, we do not have
a Canadian McCarthy," Marney
Stevenson, Civil Liberties Union
president said. "Let's not import
the American model."
Meanwhile, Harvard students
at Cambridge demanded McCarthy "put up or shut up" in respect to his charge that Harvard
students are being exposed to
"Communist professors and party philosophy."

paraded in white sheets around

McCarthy in effigy, chanted

Look Out Dior, Here Comes Wheatcropt
. this?
I have been told by Helen
Donnelly, our women's editor,
that the females on the campus
'are putting on a fashion show
in Brock* Hall at noon Thursday.
Even though I like the girls
to pull my eyes over the wool,
I suspect that I'm not going to
like whal I see on Thursday
(or don't see). No doubt Miss
Donnelly and her cohorts in
crime will be displaying the
latest fashions of Dior, Schiap-
arelli, Jacques Fatli and a few
other namby-pambies who
probably wear pink undies.
Now I understand that this
Dior character is the one who
pulls hemlines up or down all
over the world like I adjust
the blind when I'm taking a
bath. The brute plays with women's skirts like a yoyo, pulling them up or down depending on which side of bed he
gets out each morning. And as
any dope knows, as women's
skirts go,—so go the world's
Skirts go dowti and the Women's Christian Temperance
Union rides again. They go up
or this'.'
and everybody's morals are
shot all to hell—which is the
way I like it.
On the left is the New
Look. Everyone has seen
the New Look as designed
by Christian Dtor of Paris in
the middle picture. Well, on the
right, if you'll wipe the steam
off your bifocals, you will see
'The Ubyssey Look,' as designed by E!zra Wheatcropt of the
Brock basement.
You will notice that this
skirt is extremely functional,
especially for riding on motorcycles. The fact lhat few of
our modern females ride motorcycles has nothing to do
with it. I like my girls old-
fashioned, And wilh a skirt
like that who doesn't.
Everyone knows how prevalent molesters arc. Well, wearing this type of functional
skirt all you have to do is o
whip off the functional garters, fashion a simple functional
sling-shot and bop the budding
young Errol Flynn in the functional schnozzle.
'The Ubyssey Look' will be
on display at the fashion show
Thursday. —Photos Joe Quan

A former consular representative of the
Communist Polish government, a certain
Michael Krycuh, has just finished a three-day
"hunger strike" in protest against the Imini-
gfatlon Department's inactivity in granting
biih a permanent residence visa.
H*, Krycun, who'quit his post in Winnipeg because he did not want to return to
his master's "paradise", maintains indignantly
that ha proved his anti-communist stand
whin, a few weeks previous to his resigna-
ttoft, he kept his consular employees from
Joining meetings against the death sentence of
the Rosenbergs.
On those grounds, Krycun feels, the Immigration Department should grant him an
immediate visa of permanent residence
Mr. Krycun's incrediable naivete is probably a point in his favor. If he were a communist spy, he could not be a very astute
one, and if he ever was a communist at all, he
could not have been a very formidable one.
However, perhaps it would do well to
remind Mr. Krycun that while he is waiting
for his permanent residence papers in the
country of his choosing, hundreds of his fellow countrymen who have demonstrated their
dissatisfaction with their masters in more
positive ways than he are still lingering in
l3P camps in Germany.
In other words, Mr. Krycun, count your
blessings, and stand in line.
The Hunt For Headlines
At least partly to blame for the red hysteria in the United States is the press of that
nation. In search for headlines, the American
fourth estate frequently seizes and magnifies
any news story which hints of a red plot
against the American Way of Life. The fact
that a national news magazine like Time
carries a permanent section bearing the headline "Investigations" is indicative enough oi
this headline-hunting.
-r -However, downtown Vancouver news-
pipers should be given at least one compliment for resisting the temptation to drum
up a few headlines in this manner. At the
beginning of the week, both the Sun and the
Province carried a story on an American
woman visiting Vancouver who served four
years as a top organizer for the Communist
Party of America, during which time she
says she supposedly attended meeting with
Canadian Labor-Progressive leader Tim Buck
"to work out plans for Communist dominat
tion of Canada."
The Sun gave the story five inches near
the top of page 17, the Province gave the story
nine inches at the bottom of page 16.
Bless you, gentlemen.

University of British Columbia,
Dear Sirs:
On Saturday, November 7th, 1953, the
University of British Columbia presented thc
last performance of the first "Blue and Gold
Revue", having played to one almost-full house
arid to two sold-out houses. The authors and
composers of the Revue, the actors, directors
and assistants, no matter what their shortcomings, were rewarded toy the generous and enthusiastic response of their audiences, and they
are happy and grateful. Behind their modest
Success, however, lies a story of co-operation
and warm-hearted assistance without which the
Revue would not have (been possible. On behalf
of the authors and composer, the undergraduate
actors, the directors and assistants, I would
like to acknowledge and pay tribute to this
Wonderful spirit of co-operation, which lo me
is the most significant feature of the Revue and
which united in a single effort "town and Kown",
faculty and students, alumni and undergraduates.
To the town we arc indebted for some of
our principal actors: Barney Potts, Roma Hearn
ahdLen Greenall, as well rs for the distinguished ballet direction of Miss Mara MacBirney, the
piano accompaniment of Peter Brockington and
the costumes of Miss Nancy Paget. Newspapers
iffld radio gave us generous publicity, And to
Williams Piano House and to Edward Chapman, Limited, we are indebted respectively for
the loan of a grand piano and "Hopeless Ho-
gan's" wonderfully loud coat.
The presence in the cast of our University
£ resident, two deans, the head of the University
ibrary and several members of faculty was a
source of keen delight and encouragement lo
the undergraduate cast.
Many departments of the University were
asked for assistance and in every case it was
unhesitatingly and generously forthcoming I
should like to list them and to take this opportunity of thanking them very warmlv indeed:
The Departments of Chemistry. Poultry Husbandry, Mechanical Engineering, Zoology,
Pljysics, Horticulture, Physical Education, the
Library, the Students' Health Service, the Bookstore, and the Cafeteria. The Purchasing Department contributed notably one of the leading
actresses, Diana Ricardo, but also daily as.Msl-
ance in production details. The Department of
Buildings and Grounds likewise contributed
an actor, the unfailing friend of all students
Using the Auditorium, Jimmy Wycherley. In
addition, this Department donated infinite
patience and many hours of work in organization details. The President's office, the Arts
Faculty, the Department of Graduate Studies
and the Extension Department undertook the
typing of the acting scripts, and the latter Department printed our programmes for us and
helped with publicity and the photographic
record of the Revue. Also, Cliff Robinson of
the Extension Department designed the scenery
and many of ihe costumes.
To the Alumni the "Blue .nui Cold Revue"
owes a  Iremendoiu debt  of ^I'.iliimie   Wilhou:
the assistance of thc Alumni the actual running
of the production would not have been possible.
Two distinguished Alumni, his Honour Judge
Lord and Mr. Kenneth Caple acted for us in
the Revue, The Ubyssey, the University Radio
lion committees and worked hard and faithfully during three dress-rehearsals and three
performances. Whatever pace the show had was
due to veteran Tommy Lea, who not only sta.ne-
managed it but also loaned us a great deal of
valuable equipment. The hard-working stag:;
crew of alumni and undergraduates was headed
up by another veteran, Gordon Hilker. and Pat
Larsen took over the lighting Dorothy Peck,
Katie Duff-Stuart and Dorothy MaePhillips
handled properties, and costume committees
were in charge of Mrs. Arthur Lord, Mrs. Kenneth Caple and Mrs. R. E. Walker. Marjorie
Agnew provided ushers through the Sir Mac-
millan Club; and Frank Turner's Alumni Association office assisted with publicity.
To put over thc "Blue and Gold Revue",
however, the one essential was that the student
body should be behind it. From the outset it
had been the hope of thc authors, the composer, the directors and assistants that the
students should feel that the Revue belonged to
them and that, after this initial venture, they
would take it officially under their wins. The
students at large, and student organizations are
the heart and soul of a Varsity Revue. And it
is the students of the Universiy of British Columbia who have put over the first "Blue and
Gold Revue'. A cast of over eighty undergraduate students worked for five weeks to prepare
the Revue. Thc UNTD, the COTC, the RCAF,
and members of the University Band took part
in it. The Players' Club contributed actors and
technical asistance. And, as a climax, to help
put it over the top, the Students' Council of
the Alma Mater Society threw its weight behind
he Revue. The Ubyssey, the University Radio
Society, the Mamooks, and the Totem joined
forces and sponsored the publicity campaign
needed to stimulate interest among the student
body and to ensure a success at the box-office.
And the LSE assisted by several Fine Arts
Clubs, took charge of campus ticket sales.
In concluding, gentlemen, I should like to
say that tiie "Blue atid Gold Revue" was a
large unrlerlakins, larger perhaps than the
authors, composers, directors and assistants at
fifst realized. Had it not been for the commensurate support and assistance given us by the
student body, students' organizations, Students'
Council of the Alma Mater Society, Faculty.
University Administration, University Departments, Alumni and kind friends of the 'town."
if could nncver have been brought to a successful conclusion. I have wished to draw your attention to the truly remarkable co-operation
that made possible the Revue and, in so doing,
to offer- the warmest thanks and appreciation
to all those who assisted. If, in placing this
record before you I have failed to mention
any persons, University Department.; or student
organizations which came to our assistance. I
sineerest thanks .1:0 lo Ihem also. The "Blue
hope Ihey will forgive me and know that our
and Gold Revue' lias been a heart-warming
demonstration of University spirit at its best.
Yours sincerely,
Oiirothy   Somerset.

With the possible exception
of Victoria and the Green

as English as these North
Eastern States. As an "open se- ,

essential to the Boston Club as
"Ivan Sent Me" is to the Fort

The typical Harvard athlete,
for example, doesn't want to
peddle a pig-skin. He just wants
to go punting on the Charles.
When a Radcliffe Miss suggests
an afternoon ia the country,
her mind isn't on cream convertibles. She wants to go riding to the hounds.
All this has only succeeded
in making me go to the dogs.
I may not be another Babe
Ruth or Jim Thorpe—in fact
I'm not even another Anthony
Schmeoterlink and he was hopeless—but I've learned to parry
sarcastic comment about my
knowledge of baseball, football,
tennis, etc. Now I have to learn
to be a gracious loser at
squash, and how to come up
with a smile from under an
overturned shell. (The local
golf course has so many lakes
they use gondolas instead of
caddy carts—'.
Going manicured hand - in -
hand with all these superficial
ities, however, is a much more
fundamental "Englishness" —a
love of gracious living.
Never has a law school lived
more graciously.
Most students sleep until 2
p.m. when ihey graciously
arise to permit the gracious
cleaning woman to clean your
gracious room. Then the law
school begins its gracious lectures (most senior lectures being in the afternoon). In the
evenings, the gracious students
graciously tear' the residences
apart while consuming innumerable gracious cocktails
or sherrys which are graciously prepared on cocktail tables
graciously supplied for every
room by the authorities.
This may cause you to rise
an eyebrow. It may even move
you to explain, "gracious!"
There is, however, no need for
apprehension. The gentlemen
of Harvard know how to drink.
With all that practice, they
ought to. •
Finally, there is the "Jolly
Up." Under this disarming Eng-  j
lish name lurks one of the most
fiendish devices yet contrived
by man.
To these musical rat-races

females within a radius of
about fifteen colleges. Since
you do not come with a girl,
you have claim on any one

downright rude. Sort of a coeducational rushing function.
Thc object of the boys is to
pick up as many names as pos-

Students To Hear
Modern Concerts
To offer students an opportunity to hear the works of
modern composers and to give local musicians a chance to'play
contemporary music is the aim of the twentieth century music
concert series. *—
"Downtown recitals and radio
concerts cover the classical music thoroughly enough, but the
average student has little access
to more modern works," says
Prof. Harry Adaskin, head of
UBC's Department of Music.
Sponsored by the Fine Arts
Committee, the concerts present
various local musicians in programmes covering a wide range
of contemporary works from Debussy to Gershwin.
, Programs have been scheduled
for November 16 featuring pianist Victoria Nagler, November
23 featuring Edwina Heller and
November 30, featuring Natalie
Minunzie and Genevive Carey
For the last concert, December 7, Edwina Heller will play
Roumanian Dances by Bartok,
pieces by Debussey and Triana
by Albeniz.

Vikes Down 'Birds
In Mud Bowl Classic
Fumbles Lose Game
For "Losing   Birds"
UBC Thunderbirds 13 • Western Vikings 27
BELLINGHAM--(Special)—Western Washington Vikings
swam through a sea of mud Saturday night to defeat UBC
Thunderbirds 27-13 before 2000 fans at Battersby field for
their second Evergreen Conference win. *
The 'Birds, supported by over 1000 fans who drove up for
the game, out-played the hometowners but couldn't hold onto
the greasy ball as well and the winning margin of two touchdowns were gifts generously donated by the UBC squad.
The Blue and Gold squad were
strong throughout the game bdt
fumbles   deep   ln   their   territory gave the Vikings their winning margin.
The first period of the tilt
was scoreless and the 'Birds held
off an early second quarter drive
by the Western team stopping
them on the UBC 20 yard line.
But a fumbled lateral gave
the ball back to,Western a few
moments later on the ten. Ken
Lapp went to the two on the
next play and then plunged over
for the major. A pass for the
extra point was incomplete.

UBC's rugby hopes for the
1953-54 season go im the, block
Wednesday in Victoria when
Crimson Tide meet the Thunderbirds in the opening game of the
round-robin McKechnie Cup
series. '
Varsity will be sending one of
their weakest teams in years over

same terms applied to it.
The UBC Braves continued
their domination of the second
division on Saturday when they
racked up their third shutout of
and fourth straight win with a
17-0 smearing of the Meralomas
Rennie Edgett, Jack Maxwell,
and Tom Anthony contributed
first half tries to give the Braves
a 9-0 half-time margin.
Edgett scored again and Mike
Smith converted a try by BUI
St. John early in the second
frame before Merlomas conceded
the contest and departed from
the slaughter.
Varsity Loses
To End Weeks
Of Tie Games
VARSITY   1  —  HALES  3
Varsity finally broke its long
streak of tied soccer games, but
not in the desired manner, as
they bowed to Hales by a 3-1
score on Sunday.
Renton's goal gave Varsity a
deserved 1-0 lead at the half,
but they could not cope with the
rubber ball- used in the second
half and Hales raced to a 3-1
victory. The loss was the second
in a row to Hales.
Varsity will attempt to begin
a winning streak when they meet
Dominions at 2:30 Wednesday
at Memorial Park South.
Thc "C" division UBC Chiefs
put up a spirited battle in losing
a 4-2 exhibition game to Grand-
view Legion, "B" division league
The 'Birds, enraged by their
sloppy ball handling, took the
kickoff on their own 36 and turned fullback John Hudson loose
with the ball who went to the
hometown 18 on two smashes
over tackle.
Two plays later QB Jerry
Stewart pinned the ball to end
Charlie James' jersey to tie the
score. He then passed to Jerry
Nestman for the extra point to
make the scoreboard read Western 6-UBC 7.
The lead was shortlived, however, as halfback Jim Card came
off the bench and passed Western
to a TD from his own 30. The
convert was good and at half
time the American team led 13-7.
UBC threatened in the third
quarter, reaching the Western 18
before the drive was stalled when
Gordie Flemons was thrown for a
10 yard loss. 'Birds managed to
reach the 18 again before losing
the ball on downs,
After an exchange of punts,
Western received another break
when UBC fumbled the ball on
the Viking 38 which the Washington crew recovered and cranked up another drive.
After picking up a first do<
Gard gave the ball to Don Lapp
who ran for 38 yards to the UBC
1.5. Brother Ken took over going
for the major in two plays. The
conversion was good and Western
led 20-7.
Ken Lapp set up his own third
TD of the evening by intercepting a pass on the 'Birds'
22 marker. The two Lapp brothers, Ken and Don, combin-
to take the mud-ball to the UBC
four with Ken finally going over
for the major score. The kick
for extra point by centreman
John  Smethers  was  good.

Fourth Period
Loss Suffered
By Pucksters
UBC S • Kerries 6
If the Thunderbirds are going
to win any hockey games this
year they had batter learn
how to play a fourth period.
For the second time in as many
games this season the 'Birds lost
in overtime after holding a lead
for the most part of the regulation three periods.
This time it was the Kerries |
who broke the 'Birds hearts Fri- ]
day night at the Kerrisd'ale Arena with a 6-5 win in overtime.
The 'Birds forgot to watch
Murray Claughton who had already scored two goals for the
Kerries and at 9:50 of the over- j
time period he was left all alone :
with the puck in front of UBC
goalie Howie Topping. Murray
got his hat-trick and the game
was all over for the 'Birds.
For a while it looked as if
the heavier UBC squad were
going to win their initial vie
tory of the season. After two
periods ot play they held a 2-1
But the Kerries, who have not
lost a game this season came
back strong in the last to out-
score the 'Birds 4-3 and force
the game into that fateful fourth
period. *
'Birds  play   their  next  game [
Wednesday  at  8:30 against  the I
Forum sextet at the Forum. A
cheering  section   would   be   appreciated  by  the  pucksters.
Jay-Vees Top Moderns
UBC's J.V. backetball crew
downed New Westminster
Moderns 60-55 Saturday night
at King Ed gym and showed
to the small crowd that they
will be a team to be reckoned
with come play-off time
In racking up their first win
of the season J.V.'s combined
speed with crisp passing and
deadly shooting making 51%
of their field goal attempts.
With centre man Jim Carter
and forward Glen Drummond
controlling the defensive
boards beautifully and the
guards connecting from outside the students ran up a 27-
22 half-time lead.
Keith Merrill and Bob Ram
say carried most of the scoring load in the first half. Merrill hit two one-handers from
the top of the key while Ramsay canned three lovely jump
While Penn's quintet shot at
a torrid 69% pace in the second half they suffered too
many defensive lapses and as
a result could not pull away
from the helter skelter Moderns of New Westminster.
In the third quarter the Jay-
Vees forgot their offensive options for a few minutes and resorted to solo efforts but still
managed to hold a slim 42-38
lead at three-quarter time.
UBC's maple court speedsters really poured on the coal
in a fourth quarter'display of
wide open offensive basketball, which netted them 18
While all the J.V.'s showed up
well, several played standout
games. Bob Ramsay Who can
do anything on offense led the
students with 13 points. Hard
working Jim Carter potted 12
and Glen Drummond garnered
11 of the best.
For the losers Leo Lizzee
led all scorers with 14 points
while work horse Ted Modsell
notched 11.
The   UBC   team   takes   on
Arctic Club in their next game
of the season Thursday night
at Lord Byng gym.
