 • Canadian
• EVERY COLLEGE has one . . .
What? A campus eatery! The
place where the gang gathers at
the slightest provocation, or no
provocation at all. The round-the
clock social centre for Senior and
Frosh, whether you (hail from the
University of New Brunswick or
UBC. They're as essential to the
Canadian Campus as a college yell,
and as popular as Santa Claus.
The restaurant round the corner
usually finds itself elected to play
host to hordes of hungry students
who in return save a large slice of
affection for Mac's or Pete's or
Leo's or Mel's. Students at Mount
Allison say that "practically any
time you feel there ought to be
something going on, you can usually track it down to Mel's—Mel,
himself, Is a tradition. He is always keeping an eye on things
but he's everybody's pal ... a
great guy. He lends an ear to
any problem from ice cream for
a prom, to buses for the football
game in Frederlcton."
The college meeting place at St.
Francis Xavier University in An-
tigonish is reported to be a combination soda-fountain, confectionery store and magazine rack.
"It is small but Leo's in late afternoon greets more people than any
other spot in town. Leo's is the
meeting place of students living
on and off the campus and has by
its 'beyootiful" milk-shakes tempted many a would-be scientist to
cut a lab short."
"Boomers, one of the oldest
restaurants In the city, is divided
into two sections: a long counter
at the front usually lined up three
deep with drooling students, and
a dim smoky back room lined
with tables and more students . .
Tables meant for two support six
cokes, and six-man tables manage to crowd in twelve students.
It has been a tradition to 'Meet me
at Boomers' for as long as anyone at Western can remember."
The Queen's crowd experiences
the same housing-shortage, where
twenty-five are usually crowded
into tr* Campus Coffee Shop intended to seat fourteen. A similar complaint comes from Acadia
University where the overflow from
Pete's goes to the home of a Wolf-
ville lady who feeds the hungry
Acadians hamburgers, (hot dogs,
toast and coffee.
Favorite orders Include milk
shakes at Boomers, University of
Western Ontario, chocolate cake
a la mode at Queen's University,
and tea cakes at Bell's, University of Saskatchewan. Wherever
they are, students are hungry.
The five campus canteens on thc
Manitoba campus are centres for
the gang. They gather there "to
discuss the student's politics and
the shape of the blonde in the
biology class." The same might
be said of "The Varsity Tuck
Shop" at the University of Alberta. "Tuck is the scene of countless after-four dates, between-
lecture snacks, and lunch time
discussions . . . during the evening students take a break from
their studies to talk to their
friends or listen to the juke box
The campus eatery is an institution, and many are its functions, from promoting romance, as
in the case of La Petite Chau-
miere, which the students of the
University of Montreal claim "is
the very place to hold the hand of
your girl-friend (that will certainly cost you a chocolate sundae, but she is so sweet)"; to acting as an emergency Shelter in the
case of Bell's, at the University
of Saskatchewan, "Everyone patronizes Bell's because you get
good food, Kleenex, gum if there
i3 any, and a warm place to wait
for that street car in sub-zero

SPC Discusses
Japs Friday
the subject of student discussion at the Social Problems Club
meet in Arts 204 noon Friday.
The SPC is breaking away from
their usual rule of having a guest
speaker every second week. Instead, they plan to give the students
an opportunity to express their
opinions on controversial subjects.
This week the discussion is entitled "Is Bill 15 Aimed at the
Japanese?" The SPC realizes that
many students do not know of the
importance of this Bill, and also
of the extraordinary power it gives
to one man.

the survey for UBC branch of the
Canadian Legion, said yesterday
that all the questionnaires should

Questionnaires were drawn up
by the Legion's housing committee
under' John MaoK^nite, its employment committee under Ray
Dewar and its gratuities and grants
committee  under  Perry  Miller.
Veterans will be asked to state
on the housing question what their
present living quarters are, whether there are others living with
them, whether they have a place1
for quiet study, and whether they
desire better accommodation.
Employment questionnaire will
ask when and where veterans do-
.sire work, what skills they have
and what wages they desire.
Cost of living questionnaire will
seek information on veterans' financial position. All information
submitted will be confidential,

Prejudiced, Broadminded-T hat's Us
• "HOW WOULD YOU like to
criticise   the   'Ubyssey".'"
This was the question incautiously asked by a brace of English I professors recently. Judging
from the tidal wave of words that
poured in, freshmen had long
been gathering power under their
little white-caps, and were only
waiting for the command to "go."
Swamped in a flood of orchids
and thunderbolts, Ubyssey refused
to be v/et-bhnketed whenever Ivor

The  orchids  outweighed   the  bolts.

were such pinpricks as Inefficient,
prejudiced, uiiginmmatkal, childish,    inadequate,    worthless,    un

maths in 1942 and then left for
the East where he became successively University of Toronto professor, dramatist, and top-flight
radio artist.
Several of his works, including
Ills special V-J Day and Atomic
Bomb presentations, have been
acclaimed as the best to be presented over any networks In North
America and others of his plays
have been adopted as standard
texts ln American university radio
and drama courses.

New System
Avoids Clash
In Bookings
• A TOTAL of twenty-five separate   noon-hour   meetings   can
now be held on the campus without clashes or trouble in fixing
This is the advantage of the new
system of booking meeting rooms,
demonstrated Wednesday by Jack
Cunningham, AMS Co-ordinator of
Social Activities. The system will
go into permanent operation Monday.
"We had too many clashes under
the old arrangement of requisitioning by application forms," Cunningham declared. "It was far
too easy for two groups to book
the same place for the same* time,
without either knowing of the
clash until the last moment."
The new arrangement uses a
separate booking sheet for each
room concerned. Each sheet is
prepared for a month in advance,
and organizations simply fill in
the line provided for the date
they require. One glance will show
which rooms are available for that
Bookings in Brock Hall, evening
meetings in any room, and bookings
in certain other buildings are not
covered by the system. These will
be handled in the AMS office by
Cunningham or Rita Standeven,
between 12:30 and 2:30 Mondays to
Fridays, and between 9:30 and 10:30
on Saturdays.
Cancelled bookings and clashes
should be reported immediately to
tho AMS office, or by telephone to
Rita Standeven at ALma 2180R.
It is hoped to make B'rock Hall
available to clubs and organizations
on Saturday afternoons in the near
future, Cunningham reported.
Legion Loans
For Poor Vets
• VETERANS who find that $60
isn*t enough to live on for a
month can now get sma!l loans
from UBC Branch of the Canadian
Announcing this yesterday, Tony
Greer, branch president, said that
\etcrans who needed larger loans
for cmeigencies could have Legion
aid to obtain the money from
military benevolent funds and
other funds downtown.
Veterans make application for
small or large loans to a special
committee of the branch, which
went into operation this week.
Small loans, size of which ls fixed
by the committee's decision, will
come from Legion funds.
Greer said the Legion branch
would be "collateral" for the larger
loans. Many veterans, he said, had
no collateral to obtain loans in the
ordinary manper.
The UBC branch will serve as a
liaison between student-veterans
and the organizations in charge of
the downtown funds, Greer stated.
He mentioned the benevolent
associations of the air force, army
and navy as three sources of loans.
Application forms for the loans
will be available at the Legion
office this week, he announced.
Each application will be considered individually by the special

Mardi Gras To
Replace Greek
Red Cross Ball
• STUDENT COUNCIL approval of a compromise arrived
at late Monday afternoon set the seal on a Greek Letter
Societies decision to replace the wartime Red Cross Ball with
a Mardi Gras fete, dividing the proceeds between International Students' Service and the Canadian Red Cross.
The decision settled a contro- """"~~~"—"—""""""""~""™"""""""~~~
versy between Greeks and Council over distribution of the proceeds. Division between members
of the Ball Committee over the
request of Student Council that
all proceeds be devoted to ISS
finally ended Monday afternoon
in the compromise decision.
A statement received by The
Ubyssey from Phyllis Grant, Panhellenlc president, said that "Greek
Letter Societies are anxious to cooperate in supporting all worthy
causes," and stated the division of
proceeds from the function.
The statement listed two points
in favour of donation to the Red
Cross, and two in favour of donation to ISS. They were:
Red Cross—1. Much downtown
support could be gained by donating proceeds to the Red Cross.
2. The Red Cross has a continuing need in peace as well as
in war.
ISS—1. ISS is suported solely
by students.
2. ISS gives vital aid to students in less fortunate countries.
Originally conceived as a Greek
etter function in 19#>, the Ball
was incorporated! into a Red Cross
benefit in 1941. The "Snow Ball"
title added in 1944 was for purposes of publicity.
First co-ed chorus was featured
in 1941, and has since become an
institution. This year, with the
gaiety of old New Orleans, campus cuties will have an extra

USC Forever-
Vote Members
• CONSTITUTIONS   may   come
and constitutions may go, but
apparently the Undergraduate Societies Committee will go on forever.
During a protracted discussion
Monday noon as to membership of
the committee, USC chairman
Hugh McLeod stated that
in his mind it was a question of
all or nothing at all.
He then asked the 24 members
of the Committee present at the
regular UCS meeting Monday noon
to vote on whether the Uhder-
graduate Societies Committee
should exist.
The members present voted "Yes"
Outcome of the meeting was that
members finally decided that membership of the USC be composed
of a minimum of 3 and a maximum
of 11 members of each undergraduate society with the exception
of the Home fcconomlcs, Education,
and Law Undergraduate societies.
Science prexy, Jack Beveridge,
emphasized the need for full
undergraduate society representation on the USC by stating, "We
don't want this to boil down to
faculty representation."
"We can cut this group down to
a good working body. Dictatorship
works very well. However, we're
not formed for action primarily
and if we can't be a representative
group USC might just as well dissolve," he alleged.
Barney Murphy of the Pre-Med
Undergraduate Society asked for
deletion of the penalty clause in
membership which requires all
undergraduate bodies to elect new
members to their groups substituting members deficient in USC

The Varsity's Policy
EDITOR'S NOTE: The following editorial is
a reprint from the Toronto Varsity, and
expresses the view of the editors of the
place of local and nation-wide controversial topics on the four pages of their
university newspaper.
The Varsity offers no apology for the
recent outcropping of controversial political
matter in its news columns. Unfortunately,
experience has shown that we can barely
print the word "strike" without touching
off a barrage of denunciatory letters. People
have written to accuse us of being red, pink,
and black. One correspondent, more in
sorrow than in anger, calls us yellow. No
one has yet troubled to point a shaking
finger and shriek that we are true blue,
but we expect the spectrum to be explored
in that direction any day now.
It is rather fun to receive such polychromatic gems in every morning's mail. We
would not willingly put a damper on such
enthusiasts. But recently some of our more
balanced friends have displayed alarm at
our policy: principly because they are not
sure what it is. What follows is intended
to enlighten them.
The Varsity's policy is to print whatever
news will interest or enlighten its readers.
But because virtually everything on the
globe is both interesting and enlightening,
while we have only four pages at our disposal, we must select.
Our principle of selection is to insist on
a campus tie-in.
If Henry Ford proposes renewal of arbitration, that is the busineis of the downtown
But if a campus organization such as the
Hoopla Club votes a condemnation of Henry
Ford, that is grist for The Varsity.
In printing the news of the Hoopla Club's
action, we do not in any way commit ourselves, or our publishers, to the views of the
Hoopla Club.
The Hoopla Club's business is to have
views.   Our business is to tell our readers
about those views.
If the Tip-Tap Club, on the contrary,
passes a resolution praising Henry Ford to
the skies, we will tell our readers about
that, too. But we are in no way committed
to the views of the Tip-Tap Club.
Surely that should be obvious.
Now recently, a good many campus organizations have been concerned about
labor-management relations. We cannot
imagine any more pressing subject for them
to concern themselves about. Students have
passed resolutions condemning management,
or written letters praising management, and
all this, because it is our job, we have conscientiously printed.
It is rather hard, though, to be blamed for
presenting only one side, merely because the
other side has not made itself heard. It is
not our job to make news, or to mould
opinion. It is our job to express for our
public whatever has been moulded.
Readers will ask at this point why, with
a policy so innocuous, we campaigned against
vandalism. Again the answer is simple.
The facts in the case were stark and undisputed. The law of the land and the
regulations of the University Caput are also
stark and undisputed. We blamed a group
whose activities no one could deny for
breaking law whose existence no one could
Then why have we no policy concerning
the ttrikere? Why have we, for that matter,
ho policy or> any political matter? Not
because we deny the existence of a right and
a wrong. Not at all. On such questions we
are strictly neutral, simply because the facts
are in doubt and the principles are in doubt.
Each side is accusing the other of treason
and robbery. Each side draws up a list of
charges which the other denies. We have
no doubt that there is fault on at least one
side, if not on both. But we are unable to
say which.
EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the second- panel
of a series on Immigration. Opinions expressed are those of the writer and not
necessarily those of the Ubyssey staff.
(Chinese Students' Club)
• IMMIGRATION is to-day an issue which
demands the attention of every Canadian. Much has been said on the subject, but
as yet no clear cut policy has been laid down
by our Dominion Government. Since
government position on many other issues
are equally undefined and uncertain, this
will be no exception. However, there is
one aspect of Federal policy, which, believe
it or not, stands on solid ground; namely, its
policy towards the United Nations Charter.
The essence of the latter, is the recognition
of the equality of nations and peoples.
Yet upon going through the Immigration
Act of Canada, I can find no indication of
those principles which our Prime Minister,
at the San Francisco Conference, so eloquently pledged himself and his country to
uphold. Rather the forementioned Act was
conspicuous in its 'lack' of equal treatment
of racial groups.
One need only to look up the section of
tiie Act dealing with "Regulations as to
Monetary and other Requiremtnts from
Specified Classes of Immigrants" to see why
Canada may well have her ports of entry
labelled with the words "Foreigners unwelcome, British Subjects only". This
section states that:
"The Governor in Council may by proclamation or order whenever he deems it
necessary or expedient to prohibit or limit
in number for a stated period or permanently, the landing in Canada , of
immigrants belonging to any nationality or
race because such immigrants are
deemed undesirable owing to their peculiar
customs, habits, modes of life and methods
of holding property, and because of their
probable inability to become readily assimilated to assume the duties and responsibilities of Canadian citizenship."
This rather broad statement has, in point
of fact, given the governor in council the
power to refuse entry any national groups,
outside of the members of the British Commonwealth, on the grounds that their
cultural background would not make them
desirable citizens of Canada.
Perhaps no more glaring example of the
exercise of this authority is in the immigration policy toward the Chinese people.
Before 1923, any Chinese person seeking to
enter Canada, must pay a head tax of $500.
When one considers the poverty of the
average Chinese peasant and labourer, a
$500.00 fee for coming into our "land of
opportunity" was quite a price. An amendment to the Chinese Immigration Act in 1923
abolished this head tax and introduced in
its stead a closed door policy to Chinese
ifltfnigraflts. • No one from that time onward
may apply for entrance into Canada unless
he or she fall under the following
(a) Members of the diplomatic corps or
other government officials, their servants,
and consuls and consular agents.
(b) Merchants. (Passports issued by the
government of China).
(c) Students coming into Canada to
attend Canadian Universities or colleges.
(d) Children born in Canada of parents
of the Chinese race, who may have left
Canada for educational purposes.
Many thousands of Chinese people were
and are separated from their families and
wives because of this Act. Although the
Chinese resident is free to return to China,
he may re-enter Canada only if his absence
from the country does not exceed tfoo years.
What have the Chinese people done to
warrant such treatment? Can anyone say
with truth that this race of people are incapable of becoming good citizens? I will
leave it to you, fellow students, to draw
your own conclusions as to the justification
of this discrimination.
It is generally accepted by most Canadians
that our country, so richly endowed with
natural resources, can absorb many more
millions of people. Immigrants have even
been deemed 'necessary' if Canada is to grow
and develop as her neighbour in the south
has grown and developed. The question
to-day is no longer 'who to exclude from
Canada' but 'who to include into*Canada'.
Two alternatives are open to the Canadian
people as to the method to be used in obtaining immigrants: one approach may be
made on the basis of discrimination of certain races and allowing free immigration
only to specified countries; the other approach may be made on the basis of the
equality of nations, with discrimination only
on grounds of health, moral, or other social
All Canadians who love democracy, who
desire and wish to promote international
friendship, will not need to think twice as
to what is the correct alternative. History
has taught us that closer understanding between the peoples of the world is a prerequisite for peace. Exclusion of peoples
from our shores on the grounds of race will
not be conducive to international goodwill,
that is certain. Let us see to it that Canada
disassociates herself from those forces which
can only lead to racial antagonisms and a
furthering of the conditions which characterized the 1930's.

• IT IS HIGH time that certain
mal-practises and incongruities
of our campus life were brought
out Into the open. It is the pleasure and puspose of this column
this week to expose the latest and
most insiduously dangerous trend
of events, naming names and stating instances.
Wednesday, about midnight,
startling discoveries having come
to my attention, I waited in the
shadows of the library. Somewhere
nearby, hidden from my sight, a
cracked voice was chuckling.
"Louser's monumenal effort is
done," it croaked. "From Abbey
to Zunti, the names are listed, and
the ten-cent proceeds repose in
the Pouch of Ten Thousand Pennies. Chang now has the means
to break the campus to the will of
his Master."
I stiffened, frozen to the spot
with horror. The voice croaked on.
"Now the way lies open.
Through my tools, Baron Zlatz-
nickel and Count Llmpenfolder,
ruin shall spread," it said. The
cruel unmistakable voice of the
terrible Chang Suey, High Priest
of Thoth! Now hear my tale:
Banesworth, the usual flicker of
dull cunning in his eyes dimmed
by an hour's exposure to hashish,
wormed his way across the gleaming greensward. Panting behind
him, doglike, followed his faithful
retainer, Mutch Mutdh-all, drooling devotion at every pant.
It was midnight. Within the
Cairn, the Gong of Chang, long silent, heralded the Return of the

Creaking the protests of long
disuse, the arthritic hinges of the
secret door of Chang gave way: ^
the Cairn lay open, glistening wet-
ly in the trembling headlights of
the Last Bus. From within, from
the weed-hung depths beneath the
ancient Castle of K, a musty
breath of years-old air swept forth,
brushing out into the night the
forms of three defunct freshmen.
Somewhere, someone screamed
shrilly. Was it a Premed's girlfriend, learning for the first time
the intricacies of the skeleton?
No matter. It was music to the
ears of Chang.
Out there on the dim expanse of
lawn, Banesworth wriggled his
frantic way nearer Overvalley's
bus bear.ery, That way, he knew,
lay sanctuary from the gleaming
wing-jings of Chang. And maybe
a free ride. Mutch-all, panting at

their cerebelli, that Danger Strode

"Tha's 'gainst th' rules, Mutchie,"
Banesworth puffed, spewing forth

In that moment, Chang sprang.
Bang! Swiftly, Mutch-all was
muzzled and tethered to a post
still awaiting the ministrations of
Huskies. The post quavered, and
drew back. Before Banesworth's
reptilian faculties could adjust
themselves, he, too, was taken.
It was but a moment's work to
drag him to the Cairn. The hidden
door creaked open, knocking over
the bodies of four more freshmen,
slaughtered to the Great God

flashed, and the wicked hypodermic was buried deep in the senseless flesh.
The Editor
Red Cross or . . .
Dear Madam:
As a first year student who feels
he is fairly impartial I take exception to your editorial and the
Student Council's statements in
regard to the proposed Red Cross
Ball. In short I think that we
should have a Red Cross Ball, this
January—and nothing else.
Here's why:
Though we may not realize it,
the world this winter, nearly everywhere but on the North American Continent, is going to suffer
terribly. The Red Cross is going
to have a tremendous job to do.
The ISS intends to give aid to
students the world over with the
money it raises.   A laudable aim.
Do the needs of the world's students come before the needs of the
great mass of humanity? — The
people who are going to starve
and freezs this winter in Europe?
I think not!
The Red Cross needs all the support it can get—let us have an
end of this 'provincialism,' let
us be really broadminded, let us
have a Red Cross Ball!
L. J. C.
. . . ISS BALL?
Dear Madam:
I have noted with great concern
the refusal of the Red Cross Ball
committee to hold an ISS Ball in
place of the usual Red Cross Ball
this spring. The grounds presented by the co-chairman of the com.
mittee were that Uie Red Cross
helps humanity,' students included.
AMS President Ainsworth stated
that "it is a matter for the committee to investigate the relative
needs of various charities and to
determine the one which needs
support most urgently."
I do not suppose that Mr. Ainsworth was implying that we support these drives as a duty to
charity, but I think the case could
be put far mora strongly in terms
of our responsibility to fellow
students who have not been so
fortunate as we, who live in countries physically untouched by the
war. This as a crucial year for
student relief. During the war the
ISS could only attempt to keep
peoal* al^va and j$ keep in touch
with them ln a sort of way. Now
the commitee has free access to
students in Europe and parts of
China, the need for fluids to help
carry on this work is greater than
ever before.
Dutch students and others like
them who resisted fascism, now,
tired and nervous, exhausted by
the German policy of starvation,
many suffering from tuberculosis,
face the large scale problems of
housing, lack of study materials
and reorganization of universities.
They have only the clothes they
possessed before the war; in most
countries there is no accommodation for a full third of the students; they lack lab equipment
and books due to German looting.
However, to quote Bob Tillman,
UBC graduate in Europe with ISS,
"One of the encouraging features
about student life is that in spite
of these needs for clothes, for
housing, for fuel, and indeed for
more adequate food and equipment for clubs ,the chief cry raised
from all sides is for study material and books. It is estimated
that $100,000 worth of study books
alone is required to give one student in five the proper normal
The situation of Chinese students is similar, or worse. Cases
of students spending the winter in
bed because they had no clothes
to put on, eyes getting bad because
there is no electricity in the isolated universities, can be cited.
It seems to me that under these
conditions, the students of Canada
have an imperative and inescapable responsibility to help fellow
students across the world. There
is no denying the fact that we
have a responsibility to the Red
Cross, but it seems to me that a
challenge to help the ISS committee confronts us as a prime demand on our energies and runds
Others in Canada will give generously, as they have done, to meet
the needs of suffering humanity;
we understand the intellectual as
well as the physical needs of those
in college and university have a
special responsibility to these fel-

brick tapped the hanging figure of
a freshman, transflxed with gleaming five bladed wing-jinfs.
"Well, Chang. Set him outside.
On the morrow, the drug will take
effect. He will be firmly in the
toils of Mah-Dee." Wedgebrick
cackled mirthlessly, pulling at the
feet of the freshman. The Gong
crashed for the last time.

THE UBYSSEY, Thursday, November 29, 1945, Page 3
• DECISION of the Discipline Committee to fine second
year Commerceman Sid Zlotnik five dollars for violation
of article 12, section 3 of the AMS constitution and clause 8,
sections 6 and 7 of the LSE constitution was upheld unanimously by Students' Council Monday night.
Zlotnik, who*appeared before ~~~""""""""■~"~~~~~~—~"~"~~~
council to appeal his fine, stated
that if the students found him
guilty under the constitution he
would pay the fine without hesitation but added that public opinion
of the council enactment down-
down and on the campus "would
be divided when a veteran was
fined for distributing pamphlets
on the outskirts of the university
Zlotnik repeated his stand against
restrictions governing free distribution of pamphlets on the campus
by stating that he felt strongly
"about the right of any group,
provided It does not attempt to
undermine democratic institutions,
to freely express Itself in print."
"I feel that many groups on the
campus and in Canada will disapprove of your decisions concerning article 14," he claimed.
"The constitution was set up by
the students to protect the su-
dents, and while we are elected
by the majority we must abide by
their constitution and punish constitutional violations," answered
Ole Bakken, president of the
Men's Athletic Directorate.
"This is probably the freest
student government in North
America," added Treasurer Garry
Repeating a previous comment
that political parties were operating "undercover" on the campus,
Zlotnik added, "No one can convince me that where there are
adults and newspapers, there is
an absence of politics."
Zlotnik stated that several people had taken the recent Mock
Parliament serlouasly.
As a sequel to the hearing, council moved unanimously that "the
executive of the Parliamentary
Forum be reprimanded for failing
to exert sufficient control over tye
activities of their members."

Swimming Pool
Dear Madam:
I think it is high time that some
.statement was Issued, by the parties concerned, on the plan to
build a swimming pool on the
campus. To my knowledge this
pool has already been promised
to the students for waiving their
COTC pay during the past four
or five years.
Now that the war has ended
there is no reason why definite
steps should not be taken towards
the planning and building of this
pool as soon as materials become
I am sure that such a pool
would receive the wholehearted
support of student body. Further,
more all the major universities in
this country have pools and with
the inadequate indoor swimming
facilities of this city, it is awkward, if not impossible, to hold
any sort of meet here.
This pool could also be built as
a memorial with a large seating
capacity, making it, in the long
run, not a financial burden but
an asset to the university.
So come on, students, let's have
some action. Remember "Tuum

The son of a blacksmith, Michael Faraday
(1791-1867) went to work at thirteen. As
an apprentice in a book bindery he read
scores of volumes, especially those on scientific
subjects. He attended some lectures given by
Sir Humphry Davy, and wrote to him and
asked for—and obtained—a job in his laboratory. He carried on research in chemistry,
investigated the alloys of steel, and produced
several new kinds of optical glass. His most
important research work was in electricity and
magnetism. His discoveries paved the way for
the development of electro-plating and the
widespread use of electric power today.
BECAUSE of Faraday's discoveries, the great
electrical industry has grown up in modern
times. Because of discoveries about Nickel
made in research laboratories, the Canadian
Nickel industry has grown into one of the
world's great industries.
Well equipped Nickel research laboratories
in Canada, United States and Great Britain
will continue to co-operate with scientists
everywhere in developing new uses and
markets for Nickel.
Canadian engineers, designers and metallurgists have free access to the scientific and
technical data gathered together by International Nickel from the whole field of
metal research.
As industry gets to know more about Nickel
and its uses, the demand for Canadian
Nickel will increase still more. Canada
will benefit accordingly.

• NOW THAT UBC is in a college sports conference, it's
about time its students awoke to the full responsibilities
they have taken on in joining the setup.
But first, there's one point I would like to point out. This
league —, the Pacific Northwest Inter-Collegiate Athletic
Conference — offers one of the best deals UBC was ever
Unlike the WCIRA — Western Canada Inter-Collegiate
Rugby Union — through whom UBC managed to lose about
2000 somolians, this loop is one of the most co-operative
groups on the Coast.
All losses and expenses are shared seven ways by the -
seven members of the conference.
Can We Play American Grid?
Coach Bob Osborne reports that representatives of the
other colleges were confident that the Thunderbird hoopers
would be up to their calibre of play, but they were a little
worried about whether we could compete in the American
football loop.
It seems that several of them confused Canadian football
with English rugby and soccer.   They weren't aware of the •
fact that the Canadian grid game ressembles closely the
American version. >
As for the track and field competition, they expect lots of
that from UBC, especially after the showing made in cross
country runs. The Blue and Gold runners have copped the
inter-collegiate title for the past three years.
We've Got To Lure Athletes
But, remembering that UBC's ultimate goal is a berth in
the Pacific Coast CoUege Conference along with Washington,
Washington State, Oregon, Oregon State and Idaho, this
university is going to find the going plenty tough.
All of the above-mentioned colleges offer athletic
scholarships. In fact, UBC might be considered the most
backward college on the Coast in sports due to the fact that
it is practically the only one that does not go in for this
It seems that sports were just left completely up to the
students, and as a result, UBC has become one of the best
universities on the continent in regard to its high scholastic
But because UBC does not offer athletic scholarships, there
is no incentive for outstanding high school athletes to come
out to the Point Grey confines.
It's going to be tough. Our athletes are just as good as
those across the line, but we'll have to lure plenty of prep
stars if we ever hope to compete with the institutions of
"higher and lower learning" across the line.
Galloping Gael Gridders Slated
For Sugar Bowl On New Years'
• ST. MARY'S 'teen-aged football players   were   overcome
with delight this week when they
learned that they were to play
Oklahoma A and M in the Sugar
Bowl on New Year's Day.
According to Coach Jim Phelan,
the gang was pretty downcast after losing to UCLA 13-7 two weeks
ago, and thought that they had
missed the oportunity to play in
one of the post season games. The
news was a great lift for them.
To date the Aggies are undefeated, and St. Mary's lost only
the last of its eight games.
The Gaels went through this
season with one of the smallest
squads in the series, but never
theless, managed to turn out two
top flight players.
Herman Wedemeyer, 21-year
old halfback from Honolulu, is
probably one of the finest baekfleld men on the Pacific Coast,
and his chances of an All-American rating are high.
The second man on the St.
Mary's team is Eddie Ryan, former Vancouver College and UBC
star. Ryan is also an All-American
prospect, and certainly will be
named as an end on the All-Coast
team this year.
Another Vancouver player, Joe
Fairleigh, has made a good showing with the Gaels this year, and
will ba playing in the New Year's
Day bowl contest.

Roundball Club
Meets Norvans
• FEATURE GAME in the Vancouver and District Soccer
League matches the third-place
Varsity eleven against the second-
place Norvan crew Saturday at
2:30 on Cambb Streen grounds
(Larwill Park).
These teams are becoming famous for their even play in both
cup games and league games. In
the last Imperial Oil Cup game,
in which Varsity and Norvans
were the finalists, Norvans nosed
out Varsity 5-4. The teams were
again matched in the feature opening game of the league and this
time they battled to a 2-2 draw.
If Varsity defeats Norvans on
Saturday it will place the two
teams in a tie for second place.
Chances of a Varsity win are
good. The team has been playing
smart ball lately, and it is apparent that the players are getting
in shape. This conditioning, along
with Miller McGill's inspired
coaching, has improved the spirit
of the team and the calibre of
play considerably.
The Varsity line-up is essentially the same except for the revamped forward line. The inside
forwards'Sid Gorrie and Ivan
Carr will switch sides, flanked by
Grant Penny and Pat Campbell on
the wings, and Harry Kermode
will be back in his centre forward
spot to set up the forward line.

Varsity Chiefs Tackle Adanacs
In Prelim To UBC-Domino Tilt
• VARSITY basketball fans are in for a double bill at the
UBC Gym Saturday night, and they'll get a chance to
see both of their top teams in action. The* Thunderbirds
tackle Dominoes in a return match of last Saturday's Victoria
game, and the Chiefs attempt to take over sole possession
of top spot in the Inter-city League when they meet New
Westminster's Adanacs. The first fixture gets under way
at 7:30, with the feature Domino tilt at 8:45.
Although the Thunderbirds will
have captain Sandy Robertson
back in action, they'll have to
strengthen their defence in order
to stop the Victoria sharpshooters.
Dave Nicol, Domino manager, reports he'll hava Doug Peden, valuable rebound-snatcher, on his
line-up when they invade the
campus Saturday night.
This year's 'Domino squad is
one of the strongest aggregations
they have ever boasted on the
Island. The roster includes Norm
Baker, high-scoring forward with
Pat Bay Gremlins for the past
three years.
George "Porky" Andrews is the
playing coach. His experience includes three years of varsity ball
at Oregon, finishing off as captain
of the Webfoot team that won the
U.S. Nationals in 1941. He also
played for three years with the
Pat Bay Gremlins.
Chuck Chapman and Busher
Jackson are their long shot artists,
this pair accounting for 15 points
in the Victoria game last Saturday.
Ian McKeachie is another deadly
shooter. He played with Andrews
and Baker on the Gremlin quintet.
And the youngsters, Rookie
Wright and George Straith, bear
watching, too. Both hit the scoring ledger in the opening game of
tha home-and-home series.
Coach Art Johnson's Chiefs will
be out to show up the Thunderbirds in the opener against tile
