Legion Forms Resolution
Knendins Lord's Day Act
Denying accusations that Branch 72 of the Canadian Legion
is taking the matter of the proposed concert series "lying down,"
Don Lanskail, publicity director of the university branch, introduced a resolution to amend the Lord's Day Act at a general
meeting in Brock Hall Wednesday night.
The resolution will be sent to Dominion and Provincial
parliamentary representatives.
The Lord's Day Act was evidently^
designed to prevent low forms of com
mercialized   entertainment   on   Sundays, the resolution reads.
This should not be interpreted to include cultural entertainment such as
musical concerts which raise money
for charitable or service work, it
On. these grounds the resolution asks
the Dominion government to amend
the Lord's Day Act so that Sunday
concerts can be presented, subject to
the following limitations:
1) the entertainment must be presented by a non-commercial organization; 2) the proceeds must be allocated
to charitable and service purposes; 3)
that such entertainment be of a
reasonably high standard, approved
by the Attorney-General's department or persons delegated by him.
So far the question of presenting
the concerts has not been settled, but
Legion officials say part or all the
series will be offered when every possible means has been investigated and
production is agreeable to every one.
Majority   of  the  people  want   the
concerts  to  be. presented they  said,
and  this  indicated  the  minority  are
suppressing   them.   The   will   of   tho
HBJority is a "fundamental tenet" of
democracy,   they  continued.
W. N. Byers, secretary of the Lord's
' Day Act Alliance, suggested in a letter
jj% to the secretary of the Legion that the
i** concert series be presented on week
nights   so   that   there   would  be   no
division of opinion.
»        SPONSOR
Lanskail said that Legion officials
are trying to put the concerts on
under some basis or get someone to
underwrite the expenses.
Failing that, they are attempting
to have the Act revised and liberalized
through personal representation to the
provincial and dominion governments.
Questioned on the fairness of
NFCUS fees Don MaRae said
"There is a ?50 annual assessment
for each college participating and
a per capita levy of five cents."
The Student Council considered
this to be very fair because the
budget is designed to cover costs
of surveys and to give an honorarium to a permanent secretary
who will perform all clerical work.
Council Reviews
CRC Proposals
Proposals of the Constitution Revision Committee, formed at the semiannual meeting last fall, are currently
before the Students' Council. The
proposals, with a few minor revisions,
have already been passed by the
Undergraduate Societies Committee.
Although the committee was technically formed to deal with the university constitution all its work has
been with AMS code. The report deals
with the constitution of USC, discipline regulations, and eligibility requirements for Student Council.
The object of USC is laid out;
"(a) To promote, direct, control, and
co-ordinate the activities of the various
undergraduate societies under the jurisdiction of the AMS.
"(b) To act as a medium through
which the undergraduate body can
effectively express their views on matters important to them as members
of the AMS."
The committee advocated a system
of proportional representation on USC
and an enlarging of that body from its
present membership of approximately
30 to 60 members.
USC would be made responsible
for campus discipline and would form
a judiciary committee of 15 members
to act as a court under the proposed
This court would have the power to
impose fines up to five dollars on
students found guilty. All sentences
would be made subject to appeal to
the Student Council.
Bill McKay, chairman of USC, termed the proposals "very sound and constructive" and stated that if the report
were carried out "a great burden
would be removed from the shoulders
of Undergraduate Society executives".
The report clarifies the definitions
used in the code and sets out the
qualifications necessary for ocicers on
the Student Council.
The Committee also proposed the
formation of an over-all athletic
Directorate with only one seat on
University of Texas Longhorn athletes led in the recent
university-wide X-ray survey at Austin, Texas. The X-ray unit
at Texas U. is the same as the one now in operation in the UBC
Health Service hut. The new type of machine takes 100 X-rays
an hour without the usual removal of clothing.
Student Service Campaign
Commences Next Tuesday
International Student Service will campaign for 8,000
dollars on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. The quota, set
on the'basis of one dollar per student, is UBC's share of the
$50,000 Canadian objective.

Calvert explained.
Lord's Day
Act Scored
In Debate
Resolved "That the Lord's Day
Act is a relic of the Puritan ago,"
was successfully defended by Perry
Millar, leader of the government, and
a resolution that the Lord's Day Act
be changed to permit cultural and
artistic performances to be held on
Sundays, was approved by students
at a Parliamentary Forum meeting in
Arts 100, yesterday noon.
Michael Creal, leader of the opposition, pointed out that "the Lord's
Day Alliance Act guarantees one day
a week in which the individual steps
cut of the fast tempo of business life
and gets relaxation."
Main points in Millar's amendment
to the Lord's Day Act were: 1. The
Attorney-General should allow the
promotion of artistic and cultural
performances. 2, Promoters of Sunday entertainment- should prove to
the Attorney-General that their performances are of a cultural nature
?nd not for gain. 3. Professional promoters should not undertake Sunday
committments   for   commercial   gain.
Opening the debate Millar said:
"You cannot legislate the people with
respect to their morals. The laws must
be brought up to date." In his opinion
the clergy are not satisfied with the
Act as it now stands.
Other speakers from the house
made these suggestions: that tha
clergymen who oppose Sunday evening concerts attempted by the Legion
be invited to come to UBC and state
their case. Also, that a board be set
up to decide just what is meant by
"cultural  entertainment."
Speaker Backs
Med School Hope
In support of local hopes for a
medical school in British Columbia
now, Dorothy Steeves, former member
of the Legislature for North Vancouver speaking at a meeting of the campus Pharmaceutical Club Wednesday,
said that when we get a National
Health Service in Canada we will be
in need of a great many more doctors than we have at present.
"Today our worry in Canada is not
opposition to a health scheme, but to
see what kind of service can be best
adjusted to our national set-up and
scattered population." Mrs. Steeves
went on: "private enterprise in medicine has not produced good health."
She explained that a good scheme
would be based on two ideas;
pooled financial risks, and pooled
knowledge by doctors.
"None of the countries that have
tried using socialized medicine have
ever considered going back to the
free enterprise system." She cited
England and Russia as examples of
its success.
Socialists the world over must unite with the communists
and learn to live with them, or pass out of existence, Paul
Robeson told more than 4,500 students in the Armory yesterday.
Speaking at the invitation of the Socialist forum Mr.
Robeson explained why he has decided to retire from the stage
for a period-of two years.
> "I am not giving up the stage completely," he said, "but I feel that the
problems of the world today are so
imperative that I can no longer remain
on the side lines."
Charters Denied
Five Minor Clubs
The status of the Communist Forum
and five other proposed minor LSE
clubs remains in doubt following the
refusal of the Faculty Committee on
Student Affairs to ratify the Student
Council minutes which approved their
Council passed six minutes last Monday night constituting the six organizations as minor clubs of the Literary
and Scientific Executive, with the
privelege of using the university's
name and crest.
FCSA, which must ratify all council
minutes before they become effective,
balked at approving charters for all
six clubs and passed the matter
on to the Faculty Council, the supreme
"legal" body for student affairs. The
question has been raised by FCSA as
to what right the Student Council
has to authorize use of the university
name and crest.
The other five clubs involved were:
Society of Microbiologists; Technocracy
Discussions Group; Democratic Forum;
Girl Guides Club; and Pre-Dental
Meanwhile, the proposed Communist
Forum has held meetings on the campus and elected as president Sid Zlot-
nik, an LLP candidate in the last
federal election.
World Government
Shown In Display
Progress towards world government
is the theme of the International Relations Council display now in the
The pyramid design symbolizes the
development of world government out
of the interest in international affairs
promoted by the IRC at the University.
United Nations is shown as an intermediate step between these two.
By stimulating interest in international relations on the campus the IRC
hopes to justify itself as the base of
the pyramid.
Mr. Robeson made it clear to his
audience that he was not a communist
but a socialist of the English school.
As such he feels that the problems of
minority groups the world over demand  immediate attention.
The theory that such peoples as the
Negroes, Chinese, Japanese and Indians are not able to absorb freedom
in large quantities is absurd, he said,
and pointed out how the people of
Russia in a very few years were able
to become free, when given the opportunity.
"Some American capitalists," he
continued, "would like to use .the 'red
bogus' to take over England. They
are blaming troubles everywhere on
the Russian communists,"
Robeson dislikes being pointed out
as an example of the heights to which
a negro such as himself can rise. "If
the ten million coloured people of the
United States were given real liberty,"
he said, "we would have thousands
of Marian Andersons and Dr. Carvers."
All of the things that the late
President Roosevelt worked for are
being destroyed, he feels, and this is
one of his reasons for "getting into
the fight."
The Russian, Robeson went on, is
not nearly so worried about his personal liberties as we are. He feels
certain that once the danger of attack on his country firom the outside
has been obliterated, the existing dictatorship will be relaxed.
"There is no comparison," he said,
"between Russian and Nazi fascism.
The first has as its purpose the freeing
of an oppressed people, the other desires only to enslave and persecute
minorities to make itself stronger."

UNNRA Official
Predicts Slump
Dr. Leonard C. Marsh, former Public Relations director for UNNRA in
Europe told students Wednesday that
there would be an economic depression in the future; that malnutrition
and not starvation was the main
European problem and that Canada
cculd do more to alleviate the world
food  shortage.
"Yes, I believe there will be a
major economic depression," Dr.
Marsh said in reply to a question,
"and I have the support of many
other  economists."
Dr. Marsh outlined the work done
in Southern and Eastern Europe by
UNNRA. "It is not starvation that is
the complete factor in Europe," h"
stated, "the real problem is malnutrition."
"The end of UNNRA has been a
calamity in some cases," he informed
the "students. "UNNRA was brought
to an end too quickly."
In answer to a question as to
whether Canada was doing her utmost to alleviate world food shortages, Dr. Marsh stated: "I believe j
we could spare much more food if |
wc had an international conscience, j
If we were out to set an example w ■ j
could make available large qauntities j

Week-end Review
And Preview
If ever there was a time for University of
British Columbia students to write their MLA's.
this is the time. The subject of those letters
should be "Why not a UBC medical school
Represented on this campus are thousands
of votes from all provincial ridings, and no one
is more sensitive to the feelings and ambitions
of the voters of those districts than the men
who represent them in the legislature at
There shouldn't be any worry that the letters
will be wasted effort, for be it noted that the
campaign of the Pre-medical Society to bring
home to the members of the legislative assembly just how keenly UBC students feel
about the medical school issue is already gaining results.
For instance, with the session only a few days
old, the medical school question has brought
to the attention of the house by two private
members, who have thrown their weight behind the move to establish the school now.
Each issue pf the daily press sees more letters
printed on the topic, most of them favoring an
early start on the medical school.
The issue is becoming clearer. The ball is
rolling. Pre-meds and non pre-meds can help
by writing their MLA's today.
This week ia being a pleasantly diversified one.
It began on Sunday with the Film
Society showing of "Le Puritain." This
was a French film made in 1939 starring Jean-Louis Barrault as the puritan who commits murder to "astonish
the world" in a remarkably restrained
opening sequence.   The interplay between the murderer and the Inspector
of Police ffhally leading to the murderer's confession has a certain broad
similarity  of  outline with  the  story
of "Crime et Chatiment" shown earlier in the season, but the motives for
the crimes are subtly different.    "Le
Puritain's" star, Jean-Louis Barrault,
has   recently,   we  hear,   been   acting

documentary of a Mexican village

Health and Education regulations with
which the government tried to improve conditions. Also to be shown is
the early Hitchcock success, "The
Man Who Knew Too Much" made in
England in 1926.
For these excellent films the Film
Society charges only 50 cents for its
Saturday showings, and a silver collection on Sundays. Without this added financial support they will be unable to continue, and it only seems

Tuesday of this week brought Trudi
Schoop's ballet, "Barbara", and a more
entertainingly  satiric evening I cannot   even   imagine.     Certainly   Miss
Schoop's choreography took every advantage  of  the  possibilities afforded
her for mimic caricature of the false
surface values of our civilization. She
was especially adept in the chtweo-
graphy for the "Fashion Salon", where
poor  Barbara's efforts to please the
customers sadly and  inimitably  fail,
and in the party sequence of Barbara's
debut as a dancer where she again
fails.  The "Jazz Singer" in this scene,
Vol! Geiler, was really marvellous as
well as being as cute as a blonde kitten.   She underscored her satiric rendition with a well-aimed hip, and the
other dancers with remarkably disjointed movements seemed to be able
to get  inside the skin of the  caco-
phonic soul of modem jazz dancing.

Letters To The Editor
Dear Sir:
The Newman Club's idea of a
"Censorship Committee" to avoid unpleasant publicity, sounds like unpractical theology to me!
The only unpleasant publicity the
Chorus received came from Father
Chaloner. Now tell me how will a
University committee apply censorship to this annuaLly active gentleman and his annoying, anti-sockil
Incidentally the publicity wasn't
really unpleasant, it was humorous;
most types of ignorance are humorous. Besides people no longei pay n
great deal of attention to the unpleasant opinions of graduates in
theology. Or as the saying goes, we
musn't let the church stand in the
way of Christianity. And above all,
let us not have anyone stand in the
vay of more pubLicity for UBC.
God bless the Chorus!  For further
information see your latest "Time."
Dear Sir:
Must wo my longer ho subjected to
the vacuous vapouring;; of the puppy
Remnant which appears from time to
time in your paper? The majority of
your readers ure weary of his rant-
ings; still others obtain, perhaps, some
slight  -degree    of    amusement    *-om
them; but there is no doubt that a few,
as ignorant as, if not more ignorant
than, the scribbler himself (if indeed,
such persons could possibly exist),
may acquire a considerable mass of
entirely erroneous ideas by innocently
sucking in and seriously believing the
utter bilge that pours so freely from
this  pseudo- intellectual's pen.
The literary standard of The Ubyssey has of late noticeably deteriorated,
anu if the editorial authorities hava
any desire to improve such standard,
it would be wise to begin with a general house-cleaning of your columnists, with young Remnant as an "A"
priority. I am willing to lead the
roading public in donating a sum
wherewith to purchase for this callow
youth a towel, in order that he may
dry behind his ears.
Editor's Note:   Thank you. Next question, please.
Dear Sir:
I thought we were living in u
Christian country but I am gradually
getting many doubts about it. The
blasphemy which I have seen in The
Ubyssey (article by Les Bewloy) and
which I heard a professor use before
his class, certainly are anti-Christian,
I don't think that Les Bewloy or the
professor were intending to hurt anybody's  feelings  but the  fact-  is  that
God and Jesus Christ mean everything
to some of us. No person likes to
hear a friend's name used in contempt.
Therefore, I protest this blasphemy,
especially because it is used by those
who do not know the Lord Jesus
I first learned of the work of ISS
shdrtly after World War I. I knew it
intimately when I was in Europe in
the 1920's, I know something of its
plans at the present ime. On the
basis of this experience I warmly
commend it to the students and faculty at the University of British Columbia. I hope that they will give it
generous support. It has done much
in the past for the unfortunate students in the countries devastated by
war and it is continuing this good
work in the present emergency.

_ Italian Hostel
The International Student Service is a product of the first
World War, necessitated by the same problems that now face
the students of the world.
The organization Was originally the European Student Relief Committee which was created by the World Student Christian Federation in 1920. In 1926 it became an autonomous body.
During the period between the wars<^-
ISS  developed   a  triple  program  of
relief. Relief was given those students who fled from persecution in
Nazi Germany from oppression in
other countries. International eduction was carried on through university
people from all parts of the world.
Research was undertaken on the
overcrowding of universities, health
services were conducted, and publications on these topics were circulated.
On the outbreak of war in Europe
in 1939, the major need was for relief. ISS combined its effort with those
of the World's Student Christian Fellowship and the Pax Romana in jointly organizing the European Student
Relief Fund. Prisoners of war, ref-
fugees and students were aided by
the expenditure of more than $2,500,000,
ISS kept alive their other activities
through small international conferences held in Switzerland and elsewhere. The Reasearch Department
continued to collect and distribute
information to students in occupied
and unoccupied countries.
Two conferences have been held
since the cessation of the war, one
in France during 1945 to bring together students of occupied countries
and Anglo-Saxon students for the
first time in six years.
An active and constructive ISS program was the product of the second
conference in Cambridge, England in
1946. Representatives from all Ave
continents met to discuss and form
new  policies*for  university life.
The main purpose of the ISS program is to be the greatest possible
aid to the university world, used
by any student organization.
World Student Relief, of which the
ISS is a part, has estimated the minimum need of students of the world
resulting from the war, to be $5,000,000
for 1946-47. The WSR has issued an
appeal for only $2,000,000 or less than
half this amount.
In this sun-strewn scene, a group of students at Rocca di
Papa hostel south of Rome, Italy, are shown talking with Miss
Ruth Young, of Smith College, U.S.A., who has devoted her
sabbatical year to work in Rome on behalf of ISS.
After   more   than   fiv, of
absence,   students   of   Cze. /akia
are returning to their UKi^trsities.
Conditions however are not as they
used to be and many undergraduates
are finding even bare existence extremely difficult.
Shortages of all kinds harass the
war-^eary students who find food,
clothing and books almost unobtainable at any price. Even fuel is hard
to get and some have had to substitute
as miners to keep their lecture rooms
The war wholly cut off Czechoslovakia from the outside world and there
was no communication of new scientific work. The libraries which ale intact are now almost obsolete.
Adced to other difficulties is a tre-
mend >us increase of students (from
20,000 to 65,000) which involves a proportional lack of books and other
teaching equipment. Students feel,
however, that studying material is
more important than anything else
and although they lack clothing or
sufficient nourishment, books take pre-
cidence in relief supplies.
Intellectual needs being the greatest,
the World Student Relief Committee
concrns itself chiefly with meeting
these problems. Two kinds of help are
given; the securing of foreign and
Chechoslovakian scientific literature
and admissions to foreign universities.
Since all students cannot be provided with literature, available books
have been collected in libraries and
reading rooms of Prague, Brno and

Her husband was finally captured,
taken to Germany and executed,
while Madelaine was dispatched to
a prison camp at Ravensbruck.

breakdown, Madelaine returned to
France, and entered the ISS home
for a rest period before continuing
her' course  in dental surgery.

is to send in materials for bodily comfort. During the first three months of
1946, goods to the value of 15,000 francs
were being shipped to Czechoslovokia.
Such things as cheese, condensed milk,

ease the lot of needy students.

This year discussions will centre
around a survey of tile United Nations and  its agencies.
Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt is to be
| one  of  the  principal  speakers.
Four of these centres have already
been established in China, France,
England and Italy, and more will be
projected as the student hostel
scheme develops. These ISS sponsored homes admit students who have
suffered mentally or physically
through their activities In underground and resistance movements,
and aid them to regain normal university life.
From the confusion and turmoil
of Europe and Asia, students in the
hostels know the comfort and relief,
incomprehensible to most Canadian
students, of security and of treatment
as individuals who seem to count for
something  in   the  world.
The Italian hostel is situated at
Rocca di Papa, south of Rome, in one
of the most desperate relief areas in
Europe. In this region, where the
fight for existence is almost animal,
even the provision of food and shelter in the ISS home is an indescribable luxury.
Formerly the hostel was a fashionable resort hotel, standing on the site
of the ancient fortress of the Popes,
within view of the rooftops of Rome.
The hostel accomodates sixty students for  periods  of  one  month.  The
time is just long enough to give sick
students an encouragement in a
friendly atmosphere of rest and recuperation which they so desperately require,
The flood of applications for the
hostel, from every Italian university
necessitates limiting the period in
the home to one month. Recently, an
Italian student committed suicide,
when he was compelled to leave the
home at the end of hts month in
order to allow another student to
take his place. Once the security of
the house was denied him, there
seemed to be nothing more for his
life outside the hostel.
The commonplace comforts of a
clean room and certain meals is sufficient pleasure and relaxation from
worry for these students. Many of
the Italian and the DP students in
the home reflect their growing interest and their mental and physical
recovery  in artistic worR.
Some are talented musicians and,
as the weeks go by, they spend longer
end longer hours over the piano,
Others go out to the hillside to
sketch on rough pads, using only a
straw and a bottle of ink for equipment.

began, in his first week, to paint with
sombre colours depicting gloomy

colours which he used brightened,
and the scenes became more pleasant,
reflecting his outlook, as his attitude
of mind improved. •
The students' ability to make the
best of all the facilities, however
meagre, which they possess is heroic.
Even the pleasure of decent and regular meals is a luxury that they had
almost fogotten. The meals are always simple. Their breakfast is hot

the future, the ISS will develop exchange systems between Rocca di
Papa and similar student centres established elsewhere in Europe, with
organized study tours from Canadian
universities. Then the hostel, which
has been created in the emergency
of relief, will become an actively
functioning international student
ISS Estimates
Minimum Needs
Minimum needs for relief In the
university field have been estimated
by International Student Service at
twenty-one million Swiss francs for
next year; but necessity has limited
this to approximately five million
francs, of $2,125,000, On this basis a
program has been designed to enter
every campus within its twenty-five
participating nations.
Relief is amongst the topmost items
on the list. In 1947 the emphasis will
be shifted from the countries of Western Europe, already on the way to
recovery, to Eastern Europe, China,
Burma, and Indonesia. To achieve
this aim, ISS is continuing its collaboration with World's Student
Christian Federation and Pax Romana, organized under World Student
International education also stands
high on the list and three annual
conferences   have   been   planned   to
develop this idea. Scheduled are a
European regional conference at
Prague, a North American regional
conference in the United States, and
a South-East Asia regional conference. In addition the Annual Conference in the summer of 1947 will
be held in Denmark. Canada's Invitation was declined due to financial
problems encountered.
The educational program includes
student houses, international cultural centres, exchanges and study
tours, An exchange of fifty Dutch
and Canadian students is being negotiated. The eventual aim 1_ a
chance for every Canadian student
to study abroad for a year.
ISS carries on research on international university problems and the
accumulated information is periodically released through reviews, bulletins and other publications.

Student life in China has been aided greatly by the International Student Service according to pamphlets and bulletins
released by the ISS.
The ISS student centre at Shapingpa is of major importance
as a cultural center. In spite of a teaching staff problem at this
center due to a constant shifting of student workers to liberated
areas, the Chinese are extremely willing to learn. At Shapingpa
the number of persons using the library and reading room
numbered 25,961 for six month period, although most were

Italian Youth
Makes Appeal
The following is an extract from
one of the many appeals received in
the national office of ISS In Toronto
from across the Atlantic.
Messina, Sicily.
Gentle Sirs, Professors and Students:
... It is an Italian youth who writes.
Ic is a man who requests help, whom
fortune has thwarted. Already you
have done much throughout the entire
population of the globe in relief work
and  we  are  sincerely  grateful	
Poverty has made it necessary for me
to abandon my studies in the second
year of pharmacy. I have been looking
in vain for work so that I could con
tinue my studies part-time . . . Cost
of living has gone up; books cannot
be bought, nor can clothes; and my
lather's small pension is used for the
dire necessities of life. I cannot even
pay my examination fees. . . . Professors and colleagues come to my
help. Vincent Russo.
Messina, Sicily.
Shapingpa is also an industrial center. The ISS establishment gives conducted tours of the various factories
and mills, the international Broadcasting Station, and an oil refinery. Reports of each tour are published in the
university "wall" newspaper.
Several wall newspapers formerly
appeared in the town, but the paper
produced by the National Central
University is the only one remaining.
The ISS regard the newspaper as a
necessary instrument for mass education, the social and editorial sections
please the majority of the people,
while the cartoons are enjoyed by
the illiterate.
The ISS China Committee, in order
to aid needy students, set up three
mass education schools near the National Temporary University in Nanking.
One hundred and twenty needy students were enlisted to teach at these
three schools. An average of $8,000
(Chinese) was paid to each teacher
each month. Later nine full time student teachers were appointed to the
three schools.
The ISS also sponsored, with another relief body, a summer English ,
class in 1946. The teaching staff was
paid on the hourly basis at $3,000
(Chinese) for professors and $2,000
for assistants.
The Yenan Student Sanatorium at
Lia-Chia-Pa in 1940 consisted of 14
remodelled caves and 4 rooms. Now
with the support of the ISS and other
agencies the sanatorium has expanded
to 47 caves and 18 rooms rising in ten
stories. The sanatorium at present
cares for over 60 patients, who are
able to study in the hospital reading

of the doctors. "Even the most elementary  things   are   needed."
In order to aid students in their

I Canadian College Sport
Strum the lyre and the lute .... pipe the doodlesack and
the ocarina .... for there has arrived on this campus an
athletic idea that is the cause for intelligent rejoicing. It is not
a new idea as far as western universities are concerned, but it
is a "freshman" in this prairie province.
Maury Van Vliet, Director of Physical Education, gave an
indication of it at the Golden Bear basketball banquet last week.
It involves Green and Gold athletic teams crossing the border
for competition with American Alma Maters and return engagements being played here.
The Golden Bear grid machine of 1947 has been placed
on the schedule of the Montana School of Mines at Butte. Only
dates of the proposed series remains to be arranged. On February 11 the first American basketball quintet to perform on the
Alberta campus will go in against the Western Intercollegiate
Basketball champions, the Golden Bears. On the 26th of Groundhog's Month the Golden Bear hoopsters will take to the airway:;
.... Montana bound. While in the southern state the Alber-
tans will play the Montana School of Mines in Butte . . .
Billings Polytechnic in Billings .... and eastern Montana
Normal, also in Billings.
It is not difficult to envisage Alberta teams meeting squads
from "Yankeeland" in other sports besides basketball and football. For instance, Maury Van Vliet has a Utopian dream of
something big in tennis. It is a dream which involves a gala
net tournament in Vancouver, with participants from the three
prairie colleges, British Columbia, and U's in the Pacific North
West Conference.
Similar tournament for golf is not beyond the reach of imagination. An international links show on the beautiful Capilano
course at the coast ... no small thing, cousins.
Nor is it beyond the power of fond dreams to "see"
Alberta boxing, wrestling, hockey, cross country, and skiing
teams competing with American collegiate athletes. With air
travel being what it is today, time is a small consideration for
the jaunts involved. In a financial way such ventures would pay
off because of stimulated spectator interest.
There are those on the campus who consider Prof. Van Vliet
and his assistants "milky in the filbert" for going across the
border for athletic competition. However, Manitoba and British
Columbia have stacked up successfully against Stars and Stripes
competition this year . . . and in other years . . . and we could
easily be doing the same. If Alberta is to come out of the
athletic backwoods ... if she is to give her athletes competition
from which they can learn how the game should be played . . .
she must go south of the border for top-flight competition. We
are not too small to go big time.
It is becoming increasingly apparent that international athletics is no small factor in the development of harmonious world
relations. The Olympic Games, the Pan America Games, and the
Davis Cup matches are but a few of the gala sporting events that
will lead to a better understanding among nations. Alberta is
in a position not only to enlarge her own scope by participating
against American teams, but also to play a part in international
good will. International athletics can become a magic parable of
unity between nations . . . making our own effort a worthy one.

Willamette Loses
Three Top Stars
There is no doubt about it that
the Willamette hoopla squad that is
visiting the campus this weekend
_ not up to its original strength.
Three of their first string men have
been lost since the beginning of the
new semester last week.
Two of the Bearcats' stalwarts
have left the University and the
third was hit by the "outside team"
ruling. Al McRae and Scotty Sebum
were the two lads who have left
school and Frank Page was disqualified from play as he was playing
fcr  an  outside  team.
Page was playing on the Willamette squad and was also playing
for another team in the city league.
Although the Willamette squad was
not in competition with the league
which Page was playing for, the
was fined and told that he could no
longer repressnt the University in
The ruling is somewhat similar to
the much-discussed Article XXIV
of the UBC Constitution which
states that no UBC student can play
for an outside team without written
permission from the Men's Athleti-j
Directorate. The MAD cannot grant
such permission unless the man has
turned out for a University team
and has not been accepted to represent the University.
The Willamette ruling is somewhat
stiffer in that it does not matter
whether or not the University is in
competition in the league in which
the athlete wishes to play.
Although the WJIlamiette squad
has suffered a great set-back in
losing these three men, they arc
still capable of putting up e good
fight against the UBC squad in the
two game series this weekend, according to hoop moguls.
Fish, Game Club
In Turkey Shoot
The Fish and Game Club opens
their first main competition of the
year today when they enter a turkey
shoot in the COTC rifle range this
The Women's Rifle Club has also
entered the competition by sending
about twenty members to try their
luck against the men in the Fish and
Game Club.
There will ba five turkeys offered
as prizes and fifteen punmen will
b.; shooting for each bird. Judging
for the contest, will be on grouping.
The winner will have to have the
best grouping in five shots in order
to "get the bird".
Since the women in the Rifle Club
have b.'en practicing steadily and
have been racking up some pretty
fair scores, many of the boys have
their fears about the outcome of th ?
event. The traditional "Battle of the
Sexes" will thus take place again,
but  this  time they'll   be  using  rifles.
It is indeed a privilege to be seconder to th? nomination of "Pat"
McGeer for President of Men's Ath-
Ktic Association, Besides being an
athletic, his academic record is a first
class average in pure science. "Pat"
has shown his administration abilities
—previously developed as head of
athletics at Magoe High School, by
coaching last year's intermediate
basketball team. "Pat" realizes a successfully directed intercollegiate athletic program leads to a healthy spirit
in and toward university.
I support Dave Comparelli, first
year Law student, for president of
MAA (Chairman of MAD), because
of his extensive interest and expsri-
ence in .university activities, especially athletics. His four years at UBC
have earned him the reputation of
being one of the best informed sports
authorities on the campus. His many
activities include sports writing
(Ubyssey Bronze award), managing
soccer (Big Block award), and two
years on the MAD, last year as
senior manager and this year as
Macintosh Named
WAA Head Again
In accordance with election regulations, Pat Macintosh was acclaimed
president cf the Women's Athletic
Association Wednesday after no other
nominations for the positions had been
received by election officils before
the 5:00 p.m. deadline.
By virtue of her acclamation, Miss
Macintosh, who has been serving as
WAA prexy during the current year,
i« now slated to put in a second consecutive term in office. As president
of WAA she automatically gains a seat
on the AMS council, as well as acting
chairman of the woman athletes' executive.
Her athletic interests, however.are
not confined to discussion meetings,
for the Senior hoop star has been
making quite a name for herself on
the maplecourts this season as well as
attending her course in physical education.
A graduate of Burnaby South high
school, Miss Macintosh is attempting
at present to wedge a double degree
in Arts and physical education in
between her numberous extra cur-
ricular activities.
In high school she starred in basket
ball and track, as well as grass hockey,
i game she played for UBC for two
Bob Osborne will lead his Thunderbird hoopla charges
forth to battle again tonight as the 'Birdmen are scheduled 1o
meet the Bearcats from Willamette in the second of a two-game
series at the UBC gym. The first game of the twin bill was
played last night.
The 'Birdmen will be fighting to maintain their second place
standing in the Conference loop and also to keep within hailing
distance of the leading Coyotes of Idaho.
Varsity's intercollegiate sports picture will be widened one
more notch over the weekend as the recently-chosen swimming
team raises the curtain on the 1947 season tonight against the
College of Puget Sound Loggers. The dual gala slated for 8:00
p.m. at the Stadium High School Pool at Tacoma will be the
first of its kind for the Blue and Gold natators in the Pacific
Northwest Conference.
Coach Doug Whittle led his eight-<^
man squad down to the Washington
This series follows a week's lay-off
as far as the Thunderbirds are concerned after a heavy road schedule
last week in which the local squad
managed only one win in their four
Two of these losses were against the
powerful Idaho quintet who, by virtue of the double win, took over sole
possession of the Conference top rung.
Meanwhile the Bearcats have had a
busy week as they played the College
of Puget Sound Loggers in a midweek series that became a fight for
third place in the standings. The
twin win for the Loggers left them
firmly entrenched in third slot with
the Bearcats trailing close behind.
UBC's Graduate Manager of Athletics, Luke Moyls, has just returned
from Tacoma where he watched the
Willamette and College of Puget Sound
squads work out. His mission was
two-fold in that he was acting as an
ambassador for sport from UBC and
was also taking a look at the two
teams that the Blue and Gold has yet
to play.
The power of the Logger quintet was
quite in evidence according to Moyls
as he told the press that "CPS have
rapidly developed their team into a
leading contender. Although chances
are slim that they will win the
championship, they may well prove
to be the major threat to the 'Birds'
on second place."
Following are the Conference standings as of Thursday of this week.

On the UBC roster are some of the

Handling the freestyle chores tonight will be captain Bob Mar-shall,
Brodie, Don Morrison, and Bob Stangroom, the four comprising a nlay
squad that should go the 200 yard
route in 1:06. Brodie will probably
get the nod for the 50 yard freestyle
berth, while the 100 yard distance
will fall to Bob Marshall.
Butterfly artists in the breastroke
division, Hawthorne and Fred Oxenbury should provide powerful opposition for the Americans as both
boys get the 50 yard route in under
34 seconds.
Dick Ellis and Lew Atwell are the
Varsity backstroke titlists, and their
dorsal performances slash the 50 yard
distance to a 31 second time.

Inter A Hoopmen
Lose To Valley's
After a gruelling car ride to Chil-
liwack, over the rather bumpy Cariboo highway Wednesday night, Varsity Inter A's succumbed to the sharp
shooting of the Chilliwack Senior B
team, "Valley's."
The fate of the game hung in the
valance until the last few minutss,
when the Valley's rang up two baskets that put them over the top, and
sunk the college hoopmen 32-29.
The Valley's concentrate on a fast
breaking type of ball, that makes
every demand on the players, and
calls for plenty of substitutes. In
the absence of coach Jack Pomfret,
who was busy helping Meralomas
clown the Laurie quintat, manager
Leonard Cuthill, took over the
oaching duties.
Coach Cuthill was very pleased
with the results of the game, considering that the Valley's are a Senior B aggregation.
Soccermen Meet
Chinese Sunday
Weather permitting, the Vancouver
and District soccer schemes have
matched the powerful Varsity aggregation against the winless Chinese
Athletics in what moguls figure may
advance the Varsity cause by two
points and possibly tie the Blue and
Gold with South Hill for the league
lead. The Hillers have been matched
against the Grandview Legion squad,
however, and this contest is expected
to allow them to retain that two point
margin without overly exerting themselves.
In an effort to put a little life and
spirit in the Chinese attack the game
has been scheduled for Sunday at
Powell Street Grounds where the
team's cheering section can gain easy
access to the park and exercise their
respective vocal chords.
In league play, the luckless Chinese
team has only been able to manage
c-ne tie and has had more goals
scored against it par game than
any other team. In the last game
between these two squads there was a
near riot as the Penderrfitreet players
debated the wiseness of several of the
referee's decisions. Horace Lear has
been named to handle this Sabbath
Day struggle.   Game time is 2 p.m.
In the second division the UBC Blue-
shirts will do battle with Norquay at
tihe latter's home field on Saturday at
2:30 p.m.
