Sprawled on the sunlit grass In
lront of the Library, Homer Quia-
c*y waa tvyln'g to catHi up on his
outside reading, delayed by several-months of rain and snow. But
as the warm sun sent the «ap roaring through his trunk, lie found
his* eyes straying from tlm text ami
closing like calipers ou tbe figure
of a eo-ed lying on her stomach
nearby. Engrossed In tearing n*
grass, the co-ed was Idly wuvIiil

phore that to Homer fl,'nailed
miles of clear track. He shaded hts
eyes with one hand nnd peered al
her tltrough a crevice between tit*
second and third fingers, his cler-
cjied teeth producing a flue spruv
that settled like dew on bin seven
day loan.
For weeks Homer had coveted
thit Pamela Upshot, one of t'n
runnera-up ln the Beauty Qiteea
contest, Pamela's sorority agreed
that Pamela would have won the
contest if she had shown •» HllU
more poise (she gamboled past llu
Judges on all fours, winking out
rageously) hut Homer, reaUseln>
that one man's poise Is iinnthei

tion. And, topping off a triumphant
academic year, Pamela had been
mentioned In dispatches by Mouslg-,
ftor Chaloner fdf her Impersonation of an over-exposed Ballneae
celebrating Shrove Tuesday on a
Thursday and Friday In, January
Homer had eagerly awaited a
chance1 to carry Pamela's books for
her, but hud been thwarted by the
fact that she never carried a book
Now, however, he finally saw an
opening. Closing his text, he snaked across the grass until he lay
beside her. She looked up at hlin
through octagonal glasses, her hot
black eyeB* burning like wet anthracite.
"Could I borrow some ink?" he
asked, prying h la gone away from
the booming graph of her syeatei.

"Say, er,  1  been  watching you."
"Really?'' Pamela purred. "No
tic© anything?"
. "Yeah." Homer plucked up a passing earthworm and nervously tore
It Into tour equal parts. "You
got mtghtly fins teeth."
With a slow, sinuous movement,
Pamela colled to strike.
"I hope you won't take a dim
view of me talkln' out like this,''
Homer went on gruffly. "Er, a dim

into a movie starring Jane Russell.
"I'd like to be your feller," Homer muttered, picking furiously at a
wart on bis thumb. "Take you to
a dance, maybe."
"You mean," crooned Pamela,
"You'de like to give me your pin?"
"if I do, my pants'll fall down,"
aald Homer.
Pamela luughed, a merry sound,
like coal fulling into a bucket.
"You fraternity boyB are so Impetuous," hhe said.

But Pamela now jumped to h«v*
feet and, with u riulcli glait*v>

seen, fled across the lawn to the
basement   of  the   Library.
For a liniment Homer Hacked his
lower lip thoughtfully, then told
himself, "(lu«*ss she aln'i heen

on a blonde nearby who looked us
though she might have bten.

Summer Jobs
Prospects Excellent
Registration Weak
University employment officials yesterday announced that
at the present time there are more jobs than jtudents to fill
the positions. * '
Response to employment offlcl-
las request for summer registration was lukewarm Monday with
only about hair of Hut M3 filled
with   prospoctive employees.
Approximately 125 students showed up to demonstrate their need
for summer employment,
Last year almost 14(H) students
registered with the campus bureau.
Of this number, the department
placed ipprorlmutely 1000. students
besides plving several others leads
to Jolts.
I'Jmploymont officials ask that
students attempt to register early
so the bureau will know approximately bow many Jobs to look for
They claim that many atudin's demand employment late in the term
and are surprised when jobs can
not be found for them.
Mr. J. F. McLean, director of
employment on campus told the
llbyssey that prospects for employment this summer are better
than last year.
Mral*an suggested that this wns
due to the large Industrial develop
ments that are being undertaken
In p.C. this year.
According to Mr. S. Q. Craig,
counsellor of personnel, over 65
firms have Informed the bureau
that they  need jobs filled.
So far, the forestry and wood Industry have asked for the greatest
number of students. Mining, fiah-
lug, lumbering anil summer resorts
are also offering many positions.
Registration for summer Jobs
started Monday. Students interest-,
ed are asked to come to Hi-. M6
Tuesday and Wednesday or Thursday or next week from 12:30 to
Registration will be made at 13
minute intervals throughout tbe
noon   hour.
Although all the employment
possibilities are not yet In, there
evlrtentally will be a large variety
of Jobs.
The employment office admitted
that although job prospects for
males were excellent, the female
side of the employmnt qustlon is
etill weak as ln post yean.

Fascinating Laws
IF Mr. Wismer's libel suit against McLean's Magazine and
its Ottawa writer Blair Fraser ever comes before the
courts the people of B.C. are bound to get a fascinating view
of the problems involved in the administration of their liquor
Whether or not Mr. Fraser wa.s justified fri his imputations is a matter which the courts will eventually decide.
Meanwhile, irbecomes increasingly clear that the present
liquor laws—no matter how well they are administered—are
bound to create suspicion and distrust.
Club and beer parlor licenses are very profitable poses-
sions and they are not issued in unlimited numbers. Those
who are refused licenses inevitably feel that there are dark
political reasons involved.
The most honest government could hardly come out of
such a situation with its reputation unbesmirched.
To add fuel to the flames, the restrictions on liquor consumption are bound to stimulate boot-legging and boot-legging is exteremly difficult to stop.
The best law enforcement team in the world could not
eradicate the trade and, as long as it flourishes, the public
will suspect its law enforcement officers.
We are frankly amazed that Mr. Wismer, who is in a position to appreciate the problems more clearly than anyone
else, has not moved sooner to change the laws.
If the people of B.C. are at all wise, they will see to it
that the laws are changed after the next election.
The Wasteland
T^OR six weeks now the Ubyssey h&s been faithfully pub-
gl Iishing undergrad issues each Tuesday. This is not the
first year that undergrad issues have been publised. Until two
years ago The Ubyssey published several undergrad issues
for the major faculties. , •
At that time, however, thc paper was published four
tttnes a week. When the number of editions was cut to three a
week, following the austerity scare, it was decided that undergrad editions would eliminated.
Recently, the AMS decided that undergrad issues should
again be published. Except for the Aggie edition there appear
to have been no complaints. The students council decided in
the case of the Aggie edition that the dispute was over some
In spite of the fact that the Undergrad issues seem to be
running smoothly, there are some doubts as to their effectiveness and purpose. The purpose of a university newspaper
is to present campus news, to stimulate discussion, and, to a
limited degree, to entertain. These purposes were upheld on
a vote of confidence in the editor-in-chief at the special AMS
It is time the students judged whether or not the Undergrad Societies are fulfilling these purposes. It appears to us
that their editors are merely ask for contributions to the paper
and without editing the copy turn it over to the Ubyssey for
The copy seems to be neither newsworthy, stimulating
nor interesting. Even the Engineer's Ubyssey lacked the spark
of previous years. The "spark" is not created by running suggestive jokes on the front page, but rather by cleverly written
stories that contain some good humour.
We would suggest that the undergrad societies either
turn in some good copy or stop wasting the space in the paper
and the time of the students who might read it.

There are of course nb B.A. or

A further difference lies in
the fact lint no university life

competitive shorts, club activities and social functions, exists
in Hamburg. The chttt rtfaifth
for this seems to be a complete
absence ol a campus. One build- <J»
ing, iri the centre of the city
is designated as the University.
This building contains the administrative offices, and most
of the main lecture rooms. Scattered around the city at distances varying from five mlnu-
utes walk forty five minutes
by train are tiie other units >,t
Hie university. Thus a student
studying chemistry has little
opportunity to meet a student
studying law or psychology,
since their respective buildings
or institutes are lochted ln different jm'rts of tlite city. This
dls.persion together with the
fact that there are no student
dormitories ,and the students
live scattered throughout the
city or else commute from

"Allfcemelner Studehten Aus-

to our AMS. This organization
lias been Instrumental ln obtaining niariy 'advahtages fbr
Hamburg students. For example: a 'Hamburg student can
get a pass that entitles him to

and l-i cents), or he can get a

Moreover any student Is entitled to buy unsold tickets to
the Opera for 1.60 Marks, or
to buy correspondingly cheap
tickets to any of the many theatres ln Hamburg. The "Asta''
has also established arrangement whereby free tickets aro
offered to students for 2 or 3
of the night clubs In the city.,.
These tickets Include entrance, .

Woman Dull
Generally the students here
in Hamburg give the impression of being very much absorbed In their own affalra
Neither the men nor the women appear to give much
though*; to their personal appearance, and one is Immediately aware of the dullness of
their dress. It seems they come
to the university, attend their
lectures and return home. Perhaps it is true, as has been
said to me, the student In Hamburg wants to finish as soon
as ho can in order to start
earning money. He has no tlmo
or desire to engage In1 any extra-curricular activities and Indeed since most of them are
entirely or partlcally dependent upon their parents for support, this may be a reason for
their single mindedness.
As the Rector of the Unlver*
sjty said to a gathering of foreign students "getting an education in Hamburg ls like teaching a ,baby how to swim. You
throw him Into the water and
If ho swims o.k., it not, well,
better • luck next time." The
drawihaok is however that it
Is not until 4 or 5 years have
elapsed and the student is suddenly confronted with the
"Staatsexamen" that he can
determine whether he swam
well or sank.

So one day Ceeze goes with the

this he does well, 'Cause he

When he gets back to tiie Alma

The Pre-Med Key
In this message to premedical students it  would not
seem justifiable to ignore their paramount problem.
' Premedical .students are lucky, and thereby lhe problem is created.
Few students can define their educational objectives as
clearly. Few wish to foretell their.future careers as precisely.
If anything, thig should simplify their task, but the goal-
within-a-goal—the successful entry into a medical school—
poses the vexing problem. # ,
Though it may not have a simple solution, at least it
can be simply stated.
The key to the door of any medical school is an adequate academic standing; there after, the door is opened by
the  candidate's  personal  attributes  that  will  reasonably
guarantee a worthy physician for the community.
What else can be said? In key-making time?
Presidents Message
The Pre-Medlcal Society \» a
society whose members are enrolled In diverse university cour
scs. The sole interest in medicine acts as a bond that unites
these students Into a group
which takes In every phase of
training required for the study
of medicine. So broad ls tho
training that, nn adage "When In
doubt as to what your course ls,
say Pre-Med" has been coined to
show the unique position this
society has in the campus.
Aside from this common goal,
tliere is both a cultural and social side to the society. On the
cultural   side   leading   Vancouver
doctors lecture on the various
phases of medicine. This is augmented by various Instructive,
medical films which are of Interest to all Pre-Medlcal students.
On the social side, the society
has. sponsored two successful
mixers and on February 28, will
stage the annual Pre-Med Ball.
The members ot the ball committee have worked very hard
'to make this a ball of balls. With
your support, I'm sure lt will be
a great success.
So come on members nnd friends.
Come one, como all to the Pre-
Med Hall!        —JOHN WONG.
Do you want to get into

Hill Sparling almost got a goal in

to beat, but the ball came in too

After the half-time rest, the
'Birds came onto the field determined to win ,and went ahead 2-1

Tho reminder of the game was a
hurd-fought, fast game with Collingwood determined tn even the
score ut all costs.
But the 'Birds kept on the offensive, and scorod again on a
break by Po*powlch.
The goal was disallowed because
of an offside call.
Meanwhile the defense ln front
of the Varsity goal found Itself ln
trouble several times and Goalie
Mike Puhach made several spectacular saves.
When collingwood found them-

they decided to play a .close-checking game and in that second period
it was a pretty rough game.
Mario Crlstlano, Collingwood's
inside left, spent almost as much
time sprawled on the ground as he
did standing up.
Collingwood's .centre  half,  Dave
