Aggie Students
Unite Commerce
And  Agriculture
Inauguration of a new double degree in Agriculture and Commerce
was revealed this week by Dean F.
M.   Clement   of   the   Aggie   faculty.
Although details for the new course
are not complete, the Board of Governors Is expected to ratify Its establishment at U.B.C. within tho very
near future. The course will take
flve years and will combine the
regular agriculture course with 15
units  in   Commerce.
"It's the only logical thing," was
Dean Clement's comment on the
new course as he pointed to the
greatest enrollment the agricultural faculty has yet had.
"When we flrst founded th. faculty
here, we never expected more than
100 students," he said. "We've been
over that quota for five years and
now   we've   got   160."
Ho   added   that   the   new   five   year
course     would     be     invaluable     for
' students   who   want   training   in   th-e
' science   of   agriculture     and    at    the
' same time desire sound grounding in
the   principles  of  commerce.

Angered at the breaking of a time-honoured tradition, stu
dent leaders are almost unanimous in their condemnation of
the  Student  Council's  recent  decision  to  combine  the  Junior
Prom with the Senior Class party,
Have you heard? The P.A. system
is now in use on the campus for tho
flrst time. It was donated by the
1939 Graduating class and was installed this summer in the Caf., the
Stadium, and th-e l_rock Building.
Harry  Warner   is in  charge.
Aim of the Public Address system
is to notify as many students as possible about the meetings of clubs,
pep meeting, concerts, and other
Student activities, In a more con- '
venient way than the old method of
the   megaphone  In  th-e  Caf.
Rules for notices are  as foUows:
1. Announcing Is done between
lectures and at noon hour.
2. Announcements must not exceed 15 words.
3. Announcements must be put
In the book on the Mamook's table

for orders for signs.
Parliamentary Forum  leader Arthur
Fouks questioned the statement made
last     Tuesday     by     Peter    McTavish,
treasurer of the Alma Mater Soci-ety.
to the effect that such a combination
of    class    parties    would    lessen    considerably   expense   to  the   individual.
"Since    attendance    at    a    class
party   Is   free  to  members  of  the
class   concerned,"   Fouks   argued,
"Individual     expense     Is     simply
""   "Of   course,   people   from   other
classes) always do attend, but students who are so socially  minded
will spend their money on outside
functions  anyway,   If  the  number
of   University   dances   Is   reduced.
Vou   cannot   force   the   Individual
to  save.
"If   it  does  save   money  I'm   for   it,
but  otherwise   it's  just  plain   foolishness   to   cut   out   a   tradition   like   the
i Junor    Prom,"    Fouks   concluded.
"I think it's a shame to cancel the
greatest function of the year," exclaimed Ruth Heyer, president of the
Player's   Club,    "The    Prom     usually
AU men attending University
for the first time must be examined by the University Health
Service. The Military examination alone Is not sufficient.

pays for itself pretty well. It's silly
to play the martyr with th-e feeling
that you are helping the war effort
when your attempts are perfectly
futile. So, unless the expense problem is particularly pressing, I say
'we ought to keep the Prom'."
Lone, upholder of the Council,
Tom Robinson, Musical Socloty
president, maintained that the
combination of thc Prom with tho
Senior Class party would save Individual time and expense, as well
an serve to influence pubUc opinion In favour of the students.
On the other hand, both Theodora
Combolos, president of la Canadienne,
and Elspeth Monro, president of the
Women's Public Speaking Club, expressed doubt that individuals would
use any money thus saved spcciil-
cally   to swell  Canada's  war  fund.
Nancy Carr, president of Phrateres,
although greatly disappointed at the
elimination of the Junior Prom from
th-e year's social calendar, admitted
that such self-sacrlflclng action on
the part of the students might help
somewhat to influence public opinion
in   their   favour.

The Council hopes to keep the building open during week

Learn To Nurse
Soldiers Boys
Girls now in their third or
fourth year, who are interested
in nursing as an extra-curricular study, are being given an
opportunity of pursuing this
subject through the new Home
Nursing course under the direction of Miss G. Homfray.
In view of tho present situation,
and the success of the plan last
year, the Board of Governors of
tho University of British Columbia
endorsed the continuance of this
course. In the case of an emergency these students could be
called upon to help the Red Cross.
This class will be limited to 20 or
25 students, owing to the lack of
facilities. Tlie course will consist of
about eighteen periods, of which one
half of each period will be devoted
to lectures and the other to practical
Wednesday the 9th, will mark the
beginning of the class, and except
for the Christmas examination period, the Home Nursing class will be
held each Wednesday from 3:30 to
5:30 o'clock.
Headed by Students' CouncU, the
student body of U.B.C. wUl soon be
making a real contribution to Canada's  war effort.
Council has decided to ask all students to sign waivers contributing
one dollar of their caution money for
war effort purposes. This would
mean well over two thousand dollars.
Plans are being formulated for
a "mile of dimes" campaign, the
proceeds to go to the Red Cross.
Harry Lumsden, A.M.S. president,
Is trying to get permission to hold
a downtown student parade to aid
the drive.
From Bob Bonner comes the suggestion that paper corsages be worn

Cross coffers.
Feeling on the campus Indicates
that any such drive will meet with
full   co-operation.
Joe Doesn't Know The Score Yet
But He Will.
Appointments for senior students who wish new pictures
for tho Totem will be made by
Artona In Brock Hull commencing  Tuesday.  October 8.
Sittings will start the Monday
Once there was a sophomore who
went to U.B.C. for no very good
reason. He was an innocent sort of
a guy with nothing on his conscience
and even less ou his mind, but
nevertheless managed to get on in a
passing sort of way with most of
his profs and even some of his gal
Joe, as the boys called our hero,
never was the most popular guy in
the Frosh class but he managed to
sot around. Besides, his pere hae!
more than enough in the old sock to
pay   for   peanuts.
To make a long story short, Joe
Is beginning to have trouble with
an   expanding   ego   and   a   super-
popularity.    He's being rushed  hy
some of the Greek  letter brotherhoods, and we do mean rush.
It   all  started   last  week  when  some
nice   looking   fellows   that   knew   the
nicest   stories    asked   Joe    if   he    had
four-bits   that   needed   investing.    Joe
didn't    of    course,    hut    somehow    he
found    himself    over    in    tho    A.M.S.
office-  signing on  the line and   passing
out   the   half   slug.
Then yesterday morning on the way
to the Caf to pick up his usual round
of coke, two smoothies pounced on
Joseph    and    started   spouting    about
roller skating, luncheons, banquet?,
house parties and stuff, all on the
house so to speak. Naturally Joe
accepted   the   invitation.
That was thc first of four It
seems, and now Joe will spend
tho next two weeks partying
gratis with affable young men who
simply Insist on paying for everything.
If you were to ask Joe what his
opinions of his f-ellow students were,
he'd go into a paen that would probably take your breathe away. Everybody treats him like a l-'itig, he tells
us, and he saw his t'us.t frat-. taily
house at a luncheon today. Some
jont,  he  opines.
Right at the moment Joe isn't
just sure how all this rushing Is
going to fit Into his course of
studies, hut then exams are a long
way off aren't they? Not only
that, but some ot these boys have
darned useful alumns In a practical sort of way, and Joe once
thought about getting a job when
he finished his formal and Informal  education.
All in all. Joe thinks this fraternity
business is fine stuff, but of course
Ive doesn't know which cue he'll
join   yet.   what   the   ante   is   and   what
will   happen   when   he   pledges,

by the janitor's broom. Furthermore
clubs will be able to make use of the
structure for evening meetings which
will become more frequent as a result
of C.O.T.C.-filled noon hours.
Co-Incident with student council
negotiations, prominent students on
tho campus, questioned by Ubyssey
reporter.!, threw themselves wholeheartedly behind the council, urging
that the building be kept open during
tho evening.
A cross section of their opinions ia
presented ln the following survey:
Sandy Nash, president of the Arts-
men's Undergraduate Society—"By all
means keep the building open. We
hope to use it for mixer dances during tho afternoons. With military
Uaining taking up noon hours, studenta will want more and more to
come out during the evenings."
Bob Bonner, president of L.S.E. —
"Clubs on the campus are already
asking to use the building for evening
meetings. If the structure is kept
open it will be a big boon to them."
Val Bjarnson, president of the
C.S.A.D.C.—"So much time is taken
with other activities during the day
that the evening is the only time -we
have to come out to the Brock and
Theodora Combolos, president of
Cercle Francals—"What's the use of it
now? Tho main idea of thc Brock
ls that it's a student building. Clubs
should meet here every evening."
Nancy Carr, president of Phrateree
—"I think it's a wonderful idea. Girls
who are boarding in town could meet
their friends.there ln the evening. As
It is now, some of them have to go to
the corner store or some barbecue,"
James McCarry, president Freahman
Class, 1939—"The only time that most
club executives can ever get the full
use of their offices ls after lectures—
and in the evening. The Alma Mater
Society, Pub, etc., -would certainly
benefit a great deal if the Brock
were  open until say, nine o'clock."
Thos. Roblnaon, president Musical
Society — "The Brock Building is for
tho students' use, not for an ornament,
but the only students who can ever
use the building now are the "Lecture-skippers". Just when most of
us have time to relax and enjoy it,
they close it up. I say, 'Let it be
open   during  Social  hours'."
Mary Beale, president Kappa Alpha
Theta Fraternity—"I would like to
sea the lounge open till at least nine
o'clock. After all, a girl has to havo
some place to relax between caf-
closing time and studying hours, and
the Brock is just the right place."
Cambell Gilmour, president 4th
Year Aggies — "I'm all for it—think
they should Install a few radios—Seriously, Saturday afternoon is the only
time some of the girls have off, and
the ones who have to wait for rides
homo after military training would
really appreciate having the Brock
open. They can't study all afternoon,
you   know—not   girls."
Gerry Armstrong, president Women's
Big Block Club—"The building is there
to be used, not looked at, and I think
everyone would get more use out of
it if it were open in the evening —
officials and  students  alike."
Ruth Heyer, president Players' Club
—"Tlie lounge of the Brock Building

Brock Hall
The Students' Council, and major organizations on the campus should endeavour this
year to make Brock Hall a true student building. The clubs should hold as many of their
meetings in the building as possible, and their
social functions as well. The Council should
remove any obstructions ln the way of holding meetings or social functions there.
The rental price of the main lounge is at
present the chief obstruction in the way of
holding social functions in Brock Hall, a price
which has caused the Musical Society to hold
their formal elsewhere and will probably do the
same with other societies in the future. But
we are promised a large reduction in the rental
price in the near future.
The main lounge is a very nice place to
sit down in and also to play bridge in, but
otherwise, there is very little for the students
to do in Brock Hall. No provision was made
for a ping-pong table or for any other game
room. Might we suggest that some such use
be made of an unassigned room, or of some
other room that is being used so rarely that it
i.s not worth while reserving. Until the students find something to do in the building,
they will not use it.
That is where the question of mixers
comes in. The Artsmen's Undergraduate Society, such as it is, has placed mixers in its
program for the coming year. This, we believe, is an excellent idea. Informal mixers,
inexpensive and enjoyable, would prove immensely popular, and would be an ideal form
of entertainment for a war session when other
more lavish entertainments are being cut out.
The students of this University have
shown their ability to get things done. They
have also shown their ability to administer
student affairs in a wise and moderate way.
Now that the question of the administration
of Brock Hall has come up, the students should
be allowed on their past record to show that
they can administer a building for the good
of all concerned.
Of course it was not all student money
which built Brock Hall, and it is reasonable
that other investors should be interested in
the administration of the building. But the
building itself is of little use to anyone except
the students, and if anyone but students were
to administer it, there would be friction and
unnecessary trouble.
The Students' Council is in a very good
position to consider the various applications
for rooms in Brock Hall and to organize and
control student activities there. It knows all
about the various organizations and individuals
interested in the building and can judge with
some degree of accuracy.
If the control is not left in the hands of
the students, it will not necessarily be less fair
and reasonable, but there will be delays and
endless discussion over unimportant detail.
Student control would be both more efficient,
and in the end, more satisfactory, we believe,
to both students and the University authorities.
Red Cross
News has come from the East of campaigns
for the Canadian Red Cross by the various
Canadian universities. Saskatchewan has begun a drive, and Manitoba has set an objective
of twelve hundred dollars.
A successful drive for the Red Cross on
this campus, besides being very useful to the
Red Cross and to our fellow Canadians overseas, would help to correct the unfortunate
impression held by many people in this province that university students are good-for-
nothings, only out for a good time, and not
interested in what happens to this country.
And we will need the goodwill of the citizens
of this province if we ever want this university
to expand after the war.
The  Mummery
By Jabex
"I would like to get a little dope on the
C.O.T.C", I said, blinking suggestively at the
"Oh, come now," smiled the corporal,
'you aren't so little."
"I don't get it!" I whipped back.
Then he manoeuvered me into a position
favorable for the siphoning of my last five dollars, thereby reducing my wallet to just so
many quivering, flabby folds of imitation imitation leather.
"Can I have my gun, now?" I asked.
"When was the last time you were checked
physically?"   queried   a   face,   and   they    all
watched me as though I were due to crystallize or something.
"Well," I answered, ruminatively, "there
was a blonde last week who hadn't heard of
El Stuffo's Theorem No. 5, 'Principles of Oscillation Within a Given Radius', or of Corollary
No. 1 "The Lack of Them'. You might say I
was checked physically when I came to the
part that El Stuffo says is by axiom."
They were sympathetic, being sciencemen,
and agreed that the Patron Saint might have
been more explicit about the axiom. Then
they told me to report that night for a medical examination.
Being a fourth year student, I was, of
course, somewhat apprehensive of this imminent attempt to plumb the depths of my
fixtures, many of which I knew to be out
of date, and most of which I suspected to
be enjoying a prolonged anatomic siesta.

Do you, freshie, know what it is like to put
on a garter, only to have it slide slowly
and Insidiously down your inadequate calf,
and finally slop out over your shoe?
By Heaven, child, it shakes you to the
very foundations, and leaves your morale a
heap of rubble. By the way, freshie, garters
are something people vised to wear before they
became self-supporting. To return to civilization, however. It was with considerable trepidation that I presented myself that evening at
the desk.
"Can I have my gun, now?    I asked.
The  man   looked   me  up   and   down   carefully.    He cleared his throat.
"Are you sure you want to go through
with this?" he asked, in low, richly modulated
My head nodded on a rubber band.

I showed him my gears.
"Crawl  around  on the  floor,  moving the

bureau from Cuba, where the undergrads really know how to haze. It
came as a wire story:
1. The "late" president? They got
him too? Must be awful to be president  of  a unlveralty  down  there.
2. The despatch mentions that students, tommy-guns, knives, and
bombs are being held for Investigation.
3. The university board of governors Is expected to give the students   a   "severe   reprimand".
It just brings up the whole question of vitality. Are we losing our
wholesome appetite for spilling red
corpuscles and sloshing about knoo-
deep  in gore?

His eyes bulging like a horned
toad's, Oscar leaned further and further forward to gaze at the barbarous
sight before him.
Oblivious of the presence of a
watcher , that incongruous couple,
Alarlc the Hick and Dottle Listen,
were cramming a mangled body into
cash  register.
Poking his head around the edge
of the door, the reporter watched
them working as methodically as a
pair of Zoology lab Instructors cutting up a dogfish. Just as Oscar was
noticing that the cash register read
"No Sale", the last arm was folded
into place, and Alarlc Tlmberlonloua

looked  up from his labour of love.
His vacant expression changed to
one of fiendish rage as he saw the
watcher in the doorway, for Oscar,
slow as usual, had withdrawn his
head with the speed of a crammer
returning a reserve book the night
before exams.
With a lightning movement Alarlc drew a wlng-jing and hurled
it nt the reporter's head. It struck
squlshilly on the pulpy mass, and
Oscar was out like a 1029 fashion
For hours, days, or possibly weeks,
he was even moro unconscious than
usual. Slowly as a queue of 12:30
lunch-buyers moving along th-e caf
counter, his senses returned, and
then   came   a   feeling   of   repression.
Suddenly he realized what was the
matter. Ho was lying on the downstairs floor of the big stone castle
behind tlie lily pond, and on the top
of him was the Library of Congress
Brilliant sunlight and assorted
Artsmen were streaming through the
revolving door. And standing over

Oscar  sighed   unhappily,   lifted   the
oomplete    card    catalogue    from    his
chest  with one  hand,  and rose   from
the  geometrically   designed   floor.
He still didn't know how he'd got
there, or what had hit him, but when
he remembered the corpse in the cash

a few more Sclencemen openly staring at the co-eds Inhabiting the seats

the Bookstore, to see '."hat progress
th-a police were making.
Little did he realize that ln the office
of the imposing stone structure he
had just vacated, its master, King
Willie K. Sheep, was pacing back
and forth, wrestling with a terriffic
problem. "Shall I do it, or shan't I?"
he shrieked for the forty-seventh
time, running his hands through his
golden-brown  hair.
Breathless, Oscar dashed into the
Bookstore, and found business chug-
Ing along as calmly as usual. Where's
the body?" he gasped, "did they get it
out of the cash register, and do the
cops  know  yet who  did  it?"
The tubby gentlemen in command
of the market gazed pityingly at
Oscar. "Young man.'i he said, "I fear
you are slightly Inebriated. May I
advice you to return to your domicile
and  —er,  sleep  it off?"
He  toddled   off,  sold   Fluggbuggle's
Advanced Psychology to a bespectacled Junior, and returned to the cash
register with the intelligent-looking
dope's  money.
He punched an assortment of
buttons, and the cash drawer shot
out. It was absolutely corpseless.
There was no sign of a body, and no
sign  that  it had  ever  contained  one.

remains? Why was Oscar deposited under the card catalogue?
And when, If ever, will he discover that Alarlc the Hick la

First Comes
Restricted Program May Be
Improvised, Says Van Vliet
Intramurals, Coach Maury
Van Vliet's pet hobby ever
since he came to U. B. C. as
Men's Athletic Director, are
due for a sudden and drastic
end on the campus.
In an interview late yesterday afternoon, Coach Van Vliet
revealed that the extensive program he had hoped to carry out
this term would have to go by
the boards in favor of military
training classes.
"It would be impossible
to run intramurals as planned," Maury said sadly,
"because most of the games
are scheduled for noon
hours, and that time is all
taken up by C.O.T.C. lecture and Basic Military
classes now."
However, he added that a
meeting of all class athletic
representatives is being called
on October 15 to discuss what
can be done about drawing up
a much restricted intra-mural
program. At this meeting, the
representatives will examine
the time-tables of the various
military lecture and physical
education classes in the hopes
of working in an inter-class
schedule, so that interamurals
will not become absolutely
Previously, it was thought
that because of the restrictions
placed upon teams formerly in
outside competition intra-murals would enjoy a big year on
the campus, but apparently this
is not to be.

No Interfaculty
Rugby At Man.
WINNIPEG, OCT. 7, 1940 — There
will be no interfaculty rugby league
this fall.
This ls the biggest news eminattng
from our own home-grown B.M.D.
(Board of Momentous Decisions),
otherwise known as the A.B.C. However, as a sort of consolation prize
there will be an exhibition game between United and Medicals on Freshman Day, Oct. 11.
The above was decided at Friday's
meeting. The main reasons governing
this decision  were:
1. Lack of time due to military
2. Entry of junior team ln city
league (all Varsity players are ineligible for  interfraternity games.)
Cagers Hold Workout; Tooke's Sign
Last night the Senior A basketball
team held its first practise in the
gym. Under the guiding hand of
Maury Van Vliet, the squad of hopefuls, including such veterans as Flynn,
Scott, Johnson and Jo-Jo Ryan underwent the year's first workout. The
team looks good, and, according to
senior manager Scott this year's squad
may provo to be the answer to
Maury's dream of a championship
After last Friday's meeting of basketball managers, senior boss Bob
Scott disclosed that three teams, the
Frosh, coached by Jim Bardsley, tha
Senior B and the mighty Senior A's
will  be  entered in league  play.
Biggest basketball news, however, was the announcement that
last year's star, Doug Alexander,
has signed for Tookes, opposition
squad ln tho Senior A league.
