 LSE Approves
Leaflet Stand
• APPROVAL of the Discipline
Committee's action against
Sid Zlotnik for violation of AMS
and LSE Constitutions was given by LSE major executive Thursday noon.
It was pointed out during thu
meeting that a loophole from part
6 and 7, clauss 8, of the LSE constitution concerning club expenditures, was not provided by thc
fact that the students financed the
pamphlets  themselves.
Peter Lindenfeld, Social Problems
Club president declared that In his
opinion the students concerned
went to considerable pains to follow the correct procedure.
Mamook's president Aaro Aho
wanted to know why the code
violators did not seek Parliamentary Forum executive approval
before distributing the leaflets.
Book Store Wages
Losing Battle
•   IT'S A LOSING  battle at
the Book Store.  The books
come In — the books go out.
You've gotta be there to see It!
As for those English 2 texts
so much ln demand, the same
applies to them. The Book Store
has them at Intervals.
There has already been some
response to the store's plea to
the public for those English 2
texts but as fast as they are
received students pounce upon
them and ask for more.
First you see them, then you
don't. You can't win, folks,
but don't blame the Book Store.

McGoun Debates   SUFFERS BIRTH PANGS       Expert Gives Talk
• PLANS FOR the McGoun Cup
debates, to be held January 19,
have been announced.
University of Saskachewan, University of Manitoba and UBC will
each enter two teams.
One team from UBC will go to
Saskatchewan while tha other will
debate here against Manitoba.
Although thc exact wording of
the resolution has not yet been
determined, subject of the debates
will be "Government Responsibility for Employment."
Tryouts for UBC debaters are
to be held Wednesday, November
28, at 1:30, to pick the two two-
man teams which will represent
the university. Dr. W. N. Sage,
Dr. J. Crumb and Prof. F. G. C.
Wood will act as judges.
Arrangements For
AMS Games Set
• FINANCIAL arrangements for
future bnsektball  and English
rugby,games have been made, according to AMS treasurer Garry
Millar.
At all university basketball
games, the prices will be 75c for
reserved seats, 50c for rush seats,
and 25c for students. The AMS
pass system pays an additional 15c
for each student.
University English rugby games
are a pass feature which means
they aro free to all students holding AMS pass cards.
Returned Lads
Keen On Study
• IN ANSWER to a recent query
as to whether ex-service students at the university were really
knuckling down to their studying,
Dr. Norman MacKenzie, the president, ropllcd by tilling this little
story.
It appears that a pretty young
co-ed commented sadly to the
president on the unsocial behavior
of these y.ung men from the
wars.
"I can't quite understand them,
Sir," she said, a puzzled look on
her youthful features. "When they
ask me for a date they say, 'We
can go over our History notes
together, or swat up on some
Chemistry'."
"But, the funny thing, is, Sir,
we really do go over our History
notes  and  swat Chemistry!"
"I don't understand it at all,
Sir!"
Xmas Work Register

The Bureau works in conjunction

As NES needs to "know when students are definitely available for

register students until the exam

•   CONFUSION now reigns among Greek Letter Societies
and  among Student Council  members  regarding the
possibility of holding the sixth annual Red Cross Ball next
January.
For five years the Pan-Hellenic
Society, representing the eight
sororities, and the Inter-Fraternity
Council, representing the twelve
campus fraternities, have sponsored
a Red Cross Ball. Over that period
the profits for the venture have
gradually risen from $1000 to last
year's $4500.
During the past few weeks representatives from Pan-Hell and
IFC met together and set themselves up as a committee to plan
the Red Cross Ball for 1946, with
Audrey Buchanan and Don New-
son as co-chairman.
Then, at AMS Student Council
meeting on Tuesday night it was
moved by Cal Whitehead, Sophomore Member, seconded by Garry
Miller, AMS Treasurer, and passed
by the Council, "That an ISS Ball
be held in place of the war-time
Red Cross Ball in the spring term
of 1946/'
ISS stands for International
Student Service, (see other story
on this page.) It was tho feeling
of Council that this would be a
great opportunity for UBC to aid
world-wide student organization
and at the same time get away
from the wartime practice of holding a Red Cross Ball. Council felt
that it would not be practical to
go on holding such affairs for ever
and that this would be the chance
to make the change.
REFUSAL
When Council members Whitehead and LSE President Fred Lipsett approached thc already functioning "Red Cross Ball" committee
on Thursday noon about the matter, they were advised that the
committee felt it necessary to1 refuse the request.
Buchanan and Newson stated
that they had investigated the
needs of the Red Cross and had
found them as great as ever. They
also believed that the Red Cross
helps humanity, students included,
and thus they would be aiding a
greater cause.
They further pointed out that it
is impossible to hold a function
using the Red Cross name without
giving that society three-quarters
of the gross proceeds.
Furthermore, they told the UBYSSEY, they claim that the great
downtown support which has been
built up for the Red Cross BaU
would not be forthcoming for ISS.
AINSWORTH STATEMENT
AMS President Ainsworth issued
the following statement to the
UBYSSEY:
"Council made the suggestion to
the 'Ball Committee' because we
thought it advisable to consider at
this time the best possible course
to which tho energies, time, and
' money of the student body might
bo devoted. International Student
Service is the only charity which
depends solely for its sources on
the efforts of university students
all over Canada.
"However, it is a matter for the
committee to investigate the relative needs of various charities and
lo determine the one which needs
support most urgently.
"Another consideration originally
discussed was tho possibility of

proceeds to ba divided between

mori; inoiBu;
1 ui'ther complicating the whole
iisuo was the story in the downtown paper Thursday evening
which prematurely definitely announced the holding of a Red Cross
Bail on January 2-1 and 25 at the
Commodore.
Meanwhile the "Red Cross Ball"
committee is going ahead with
plans to hold the function on January 2-1-25. Co-chairman Audrey
Buchanan Friday morning issued
an invitation to any student interested in working on thc committee
to contact her immediately.

Wants $50,000
• DR. MARCUS LONG, newly
appointed chairman of the Canadian Committee of the International Student Service, is setting
up machinery to raise $50,000 in
universities across Canada to provide for student relief in China
and Europe.
Dr. Long is a member of the
staff of philosophy at the University of Toronto. He taught at University of Manitoba and Brandon
College before enlisting in the
Canadian Army in 1941. In the
'Army Dr. Long served with the
Directorate of Personnel Selection
both in Canada and abroad.
TOWARDS PEACE
Dr, Long points out that student
life in Europe has been severely
affected, and he adds: "We can
perform not only a humanitarian
service but also take a step toward
achieving the peace of the world.
The university students of today
are the leaders of tomorrow. By
extending a helping hand now to
these young men and women, we
will establish a bond of friendship
that will last through the years."
Barbershop Will
Expand... If!
• CAMPUS barber shop is so
successful that Peter Dyke, operator, is contemplating putting in a
new chair.
Finding this shop very convenient with its full line of services
students are keeping business
booming and have made the barber realize that a third chair is
necessary. The chair will be installed as soon as it can be obtained.
BUT-!
Unfortunately, the barber shop
will be unable to continue if the
barber, Peter Dyke cannot find a
house. At present he is offering
a reward of twenty-five dollars to
any student who can get him a
house.

Ed'tor Bruce Lowther apologized for duplications In some
of the copies, excusing this to
miscalculations In cutting.
He emphasized the fact that
only three thousand copies arc
being printed. Students should
be sure to share what copies
they get with their roommates
and lriends, be said.
• TODAY'S housing shortage in
England is the direct result of
six years restrictions on all building, and the increasing demand of
young ex-service couples for dwellings, explained Miss Helen Alfort,
recently arrived British housing
expert during last Thursday's
Parliamentary Forum gathering.
Miss Alfort emphasized that
bombing during the war contributed in but a small manner to
Britain's acute domicile shortage.
"A great many people in Britain
today can not afford the upkeep
of a comfortable place to live,"
she said. "Under Britain's postwar building schemes our central
government first offers a construction grant, the municipality then
builds the houses, supplies the
fixtures, and takes care of all
rentage,"
She pointed out that in the rebuilding of London emphasis is
placed on satellite towns rather
than the closely packed old style
city of former years.

A. Combined Effort
Greek letter societies are a much criticized
element on the campus this year. And they
are bound to go down a notch in the opinion
of the student body and in the minds of
John Q. Public if they stick to their attitude
toward the Red Cross Ball as evidenced in
a recent meeting of the Red Cross Ball
committee. A recommendation from Students' Council that members of the International Students' Service committee amalgamate with the greek letter groups as
co-sponsors of the ball was turned down
rather arbitrarily.
It is true that fraternities and sororities
have done a very efficient organizational
job on the Red Cross Ball for the past few
years. Individual greek letter groups, because of their tightly-knit organizations, are
well able to support a co-ordinated charity
effort, and have turned over a lot of money
to the Red Cross in the past. No one denies
this and no one denies the fact that fraternity and sorority support is essential for the
success of these affairs.
However, we object to the attitude that
greek letter societies are, as the saying goes
"a power unto themselves", as evidenced
in their refusal of the recommendation from
Council that they merge efforts with the
International Students' Service Committee,
and had neither their committee dates nor
financial arrangements for the Ball approved
by council before releasing publicity to the
downtown papers.
Of course any group has the power to
refuse a recommendation, and perhaps the
seemingly arbitrary action already taken by
the committee was a result of ignorance of
AMS constitutional procedure or a premature news leak. But in the interest of
charity and campus democracy it would have
jeen wise for the Greek letter groups to
EDITORIAL PAGE
consider the council recommendation more
carefully before going ahead and cornering
the glory, and it must be asserted in true
justice to the cause,—the hard work involved, in sponsoring the ball.
There should be more careful co-ordination and planning of charity drives on the
campus. For this reason council made the
amalgamation recommendation.
The Red Cross is a worthy cause. The
International Students' Service drive which
is beginning to boom across Canadian
universities is also worthy, especially because it is an entirely university student
cause organized solely for students in need
in other countries by students in more
fortunate countries. In the past it has not
been a financial success here, partly because
the Red Cross Ball was tying up student
attention and pocket books at the same time
as the ISS international campaign. At the
present time the University of Toronto is
leading an IS& campaign with a $50,000
objective.
It would be possible to amalgamate the
efforts of two committees and split the proceeds, especially if the ball were to be held
two successive nights, as has been tentatively
announced here.
Whether or not this two-night proposal
is a good idea is another question again.
The university enrolment has swollen way
out of proportion and there is no place large
enough in Vancouver to hold a complete
University affair. If the number of tickets
sold for the dance wefe to be limited with
priority going to the greeks, then the affair
should be held two nights, and enough
tickets sold so that almost as many people
Who wanted to come could.
At any rate, we would advise the Red
Cross Ball committee to reconsider.

Dear   Madam:
We thank you for your co-operation of thc past but we find that
your 'editorial of Tuesday, November 20 is a definite mis-statement
of facts. You mention "off-color"
jokes being presented at pep
meets and tea dances by tha Jokers Club. We feel that our efforts with regard to "humor"
have been kept within the bounds
(i clcan'.hii.'.-w as previously established on the campus—comparison
proves.
With reference to the latest tea
dance, we of the Jokers Club feel
ttv.it criticism on youi part wa.s
unfounded .since the MC, although
a member of the above mentioned
club was acting entirely under
the jurisdiction of the WUS and
not for the Jokers Club.
Lastly, may wc enlighten you on
your very broad statement "Every
organization on the campus needs
tho support of the older students."
Tho Jokers Glub, as you should
well know, being largely composed
of ex-service per.aonnel, has student members not only older in
age but also in experience as far
as  campus  clubs  are  concerned.
We of thc Jokers Club appreciate
your interest in u.s and hope you
will continue to offer helpful suggestions.

P.S. Please buy a copy of "Dear
Sir" at any magazine counter.
Dear Madam,
At the outset of the election (No.
1) for the Mock Parliament, President Hal Daykin warned everyone
that it wasn't to be taken too seriously. Inasmuch as everyone
else seems to have disregarded his
advice, allow me also to be serious for a moment.
The matter which has caused me
to take this unprecedented action
of writing a letter-to-the-editor
was provoked by Grant Livingstone, Conservative Party leader,
when he opened his address at the
election (No. 2) with these words
—"Ladies and gentlemen, fellow
Canadians, I exclude the LPP,''
I know a few of the LPP members on tho campus and I know
that several of them are veterans.
I feel that in view of the fact that
these men have served in the
Armed Forces, some of them Overseas, they have the right to be
called Canadians just as much as
anyone else. I'm sure that if ex-
soldier Livingstone will stop to
think over his remarks he will
realize how unjust there wore.
E'y the way, I'm not a member
of the LPP.
Yours,
Robert W. Prittie.
• THANKS—Keith   MacDonald's
election as Fall Ball King is a
big boost to us Pre-Meds, and we'd
like to thank everyone who voted
him in. Our big job at present is
to get our Med Faculty hero next
fall, and every push of this sort
helps.

The service you receive from your
bank h rendered so quietly and efficiently that the human values behind
H may not hav occurred to you.
Think, for Instance, of the confidence you rest in your
branch bank manager, perhaps without even knowing him
well personally. You ought to know him bette*. By depositing your money in his branch, you made him and his staff
the custodians of your account and the transactions relating
to it. You hold him in high trust, knowing that your private
affairs will be kept private.
You will find your bank manager a trained man who has
come up through the ranks, and who will be glad to discuss
your financial needs with you and to inform you as to the
appropriate service his bank can render.
Should you desire a personal loan to meet some unexpected
expense, talk it over with him. You can depend on receiving
courteous, understanding and friendly consideration. Small
loans are just one of the services your bank provides. You
may be surprised to learn of many other services available
for your use.

"A thing of beauty is a joy forever"
Fair maids were not permitted to be clever
In days of old.  These dam.scj||f^H»ly smiled,
And hearts of gallant  knights wfe»»sooii beguiled. ,
O carefree hearts!   Thoy knew no Mr. Ferry
To plague their days and mnke them far from merry.
Their only worrying beauty on the spot . . .
The worry of their patch being on or not.
O days of chivalry, when Raleigh spread
His scarlet cloak for dainty feet to tread-
When nobody consideredjt was highbrow
To warmly eulogize yqyr-lady's eyebrow—
When lovers kissed the air that blew the curl
That tumbled on m'ladji'-s brow of pearl-
Compared her eyes to sta^s.   But now it pleases
Them to note ourvtinder-eye valises.
The boogie-woogie starts; they say "Hi worm",
Then writhing like amoebas, ooze "Let's squirm".      J'
In happy days of yore it was taboo
To smoke if gentle ladies were with you; *
But now with sad mascara tears we cry »
When gallants exhale smoke into our eye.
'Twas elegant for maids to faint from fright
(Although  'twas  truly  from  their  stays too  tight)
But now propitious swoons one never sees
(The Red Cross Books says "Head between the knees")
The ideal woman, praised on every side
Is a female prototyfje of Jekyll and Hyde.
Although in criminology we view
Tne morgue and penitentiary too,
The sight of blood is meant to make us weak,
A tiny mouse is meant to make us shriek.
Although we take part in every game,
Muscles must not develop on a dame.
Atlhough in labs We study all the habits
Producing multiplicity of rabbits,
In our cheeks the blood is meant to bate
When birds and bees are mentioned^ on a date.
Although in war we learned to-change a tire,
Fix the plumbing, stoke the furnace fire,
We now must stand in meek, adoring wonder
While Cuthbert pulls the family car asunder.
To speak of piano legs was once forbidden—
But 'though the beach these days with limbs is ridden,
If our patella is not nicely dressed,
In Ottawa we're subject to arrest.
With complex double personalities
The simple male we mercilessly tease;
All frankness now—now innocence abused
No wonder gentlemen become a bit confused.
And though they may not be so reverential
I must admit they are somewhat essential.

And Preview bjlbegidnex
• THIS PAST week was pleasantly punctuated by the Szigeti
Concert on Thursday night and the
Steinberg on'campus Concert on
Friday at noon. Sandwiched in
also was the special showing, for
the members of the Armed Forces,
Ex-servicemen, and their friends
(which of course includes evjery-
body) of the documentary f\lm,
"The True Glory". The New Yorker 'cinema' expert after seeing it

properly that we like that man
Wolcott Gibbs, who did their
movie-reviews for a while alter
the death of Lardner in the South
Pacific. The new one they have
now, permitting Mr. G. to give
his undivided and vitriolic attention to the stage, is John McCarten,
who occasionally fumbles badly.
But while the good Mr. Gibbs was
still graciously and effortlessly
committing critical mayhem in
both sections he wrote one particular preamble to a review on the

only interesting point in the not

around very miserably through
its mases.

• SINCE THIS seems to be our
week to quote, and since the

and since we want to prove we
do read something beside the "Preview", here Ls a thing, stumbled
on this week in a book of short
stories by Glcnway Wescott, anent
fraternities: "The chief work of
the .society, I learn, is to beat out
of each other all conceit and incivility; what is exceptional passes
for the Conner, what is undemocratic for the latter. The better
part of ievnius, if any turned up
here, would he discretion. Its chief
emusomciit i.s the exchange of indecent anecdotes in half-official
conclave; an aimless exchange foi
watch is kept and any moral slackness, however lonely, punished
with a sort of paddle.   Apparently
by ordinary soldiers and sailors-
American, British, French, Polish-
plus an occasional interjection by
General Eisenhower, who sounds
just as casual as anybody else . . .
There i.s perhaps too little in "The
True Glory" about death to give
it as terrible an impact as it might
have had. Even so, the fourteen

these things because technically
they're so well made. If only they
would once in a while dishevel
their flawless technique and let an
idea in! This modernization of the
lush romanticism of Sir Arthur
Wing Pinero seems pretty thin stuff
beside the true and passionate
fantasy of "Wuthering Heights"
for example.

gated "Arabian Nights" could make

wall, under a photograph of the
Venus de Milo. How with this
combination of mental saturnalia
and friendly auto-da-fe, are they
to learn to choose wives? Choosing,
as a human function, docs not
seem to be greatly favored."
This is offered as a .stimulus toward a free anil full discussion of
this question: to be or not to he a
fraternity man—or rather, a fraternity brother. The excerpt quoted is coloured somewhat by being
a description of a Middle Western
American fraternity of the late
1920's but it contains in essence
one serious criticism of the fart-
crnity idea or plan.

■ ■ ■
OH TO BE A WEBFOOT
• I ASSOCIATED DUCKS with only one sport—hunting—
until I found out about the Oregon Ducks. It seems they
go in for nothing but sports down in that colorful little town
of Eugene, Oregon.
I found out all about it from one Carlos Q. Robertson,
popular man-about-town to whom all sports scribes bow at
the offices of "Western Canada's Greatest Morning Newspaper" — The News-H.
By some queer quirk of chance, Carlos graduated from
the halls of "Mighty Oregon" way back in '40. Those were
the days when he was either a conspiring student or an
aspiring journalist.
With this in mind, I fired a few questions offhandedly at
him the other night while we were sitting around the office
with not much to do.
Have They Got A Stadium?
I had been very puzzled about how Oregon turned out
such basketball and football squads, so I asked him what
kind of a gym they have down there, and whether they have
a stadium.
That started it.
"What kind of a gym? . . . Have they got a stadium?"
he repeated in ominously disgusted tones. "Why they've
got one of the greatest physical education plants in the Northwest," proclaimed the almighty one.
"Doubtless you've heard about MacArthur Court. It only
seats about 8000 — 10,000 in a pinch —, but it's full of
offices and more gym rooms. For instance, there's a boxing
and wrestling room with a full-size ring, a fencing room,
special handball and squash courts, a weight-lifting room, etc.
"Then there are two standard-size gyms behind MacArthur
Court.   Of course they only use those for intramurals.
It's Named After Hayward
"As for a stadium, the Webfoots have to get along with an
old wooden horseshoe-shaped structure which only seats
about 15,000. But they can't complain about the field, or
the modern cinder track that surrounds it.
"We used to have a track meet against one of the other
universities almost every week-end in the spring, finishing
off with one against the OSC Beavers, our deadliest enemies.
Coach Bill Hayward — I think he's been training tracksters
there since 1863 — has turned out some of the top cinder
stars of the United States.
"Incidentally, the stadium is called Hayward Field in
honor of the old boy. I think they thought he was going to
die when they built it 40 years ago, but as far as I know he's
still coaching down there.
It's Good Enough For 3000
"Then there's the baseball field — I can't think of the name
of it. It's right behind the stadium. They really go in for
baseball there, — it's a major sport. And plenty of Webfoots
have graduated into the major leagues.
"So, taking all the buildings and fields into account, the
physical education layout covers five or six city blocks. It's
not bad for a student body which averages between 2500
and 3000."
I stopped for breath after hearing all this. Considering
we have almost 6000 at UBC, I shuddered as I thought of
our "cheese-box" that seats 1400, and our stadium grandstand
which holds 1605 spectators.
I hear there is a move afoot to erect a memorial building
in honor of former UBC students who were killed in the
great conflict which has just ended.
We Need A Fitting Memorial
May I suggest the students build the central member of
their permanent physical education plant. There could not
be a more fitting memorial to our war heroes than a magnificent gym.
If you are afraid of the cost, may I inform you that a gym
which seats 5000 and an aquatic arena seating 1000 would
pay for themselves in less than 10 years.
MacArthur Court, which is used for social functions as
well as spoils events, paid for itself in six years. Now
it's ono of Ihe greatest assets to the Eugene Campus.
"By the way, Carl," said I, as I got up and put on my
raincoat, "how the heck did those Oregon characters get the
name Webfoots?"
"How did they get that name?" said he. "Why, you've
got to have webfeet to live in that town. It rains more there
than it docs here!"
"Is that possible?" said I. And I put up my umbrella as
I walked out into Vancouver's liquid sunshine.

Northwest two-mile title last
spring, made the four-mile circuit
in 21 minutes and 40 seconds to
take over individual honors from
Eastern Washington's Bob Lynn
who holds the course record and
has won the race for the past two
years. Lynn graduated from
Eastern Washington College this
fall.
KAN IN A GROUP
Jack Carlile, Pat Minchin and
Doug Knott followed on the heels
of Bain in third, fourth and fifth
places respectively as the Blue and
Gold squad ran in a group again
as was their practice in winning
the 1943 and 1944 titles.
Ken McPherson, who led both
of those teams, placed 10th this
year, which is an amazing feat
considering the handicap of a serious knee injury which he received
while working la-it summer.
The UBC outfit copped the
shield put up by the Spokane
Athletic Round Table with a low
score of 24 points, three points
lower than last year's winning
tally.
SECOND TEAM FOURTH
The Canadian university's second team also did well, placing
fourth behind the University of
Oregon squad in the eight-team
field. The Webfoot runners took
third spot with 95 points and
UBC's second squad countered 107.
Al Pierce and Peter deVooght,
another pair of freshmen from
Lord Byng High School, took
number 12 and 13 spots, and
Ken McLeod and Bob Lane
placed 15th and 16th respectively.
Bill Wood, who placed eighth
for UBC last year, dropped into
21st place, Ait Porter was 25th,
and Bob Ross, who also stars at
rugger, finished 30th.
UNDISPUTED SUPREMACY
Teams that both UBC aggrega.
tions defeated were the University
of Washington (109 points), Washington State College (135), University of Southern Idaho (196),
and Eastern Washington College
of Education (210).
The third straight triumph for
UBC, only Canadian entry in the
annual meet, gives them undisputed supremacy in cross country
circles of the Pacific Northwest.
It was a well-deserved victory for
both the runners and Coach Bob
Osborne.

Varsity Fifteen
Favored Today
• COMBINING u heavy pack of
forwards   with    a   fleet-footed
backfield, Coach Dan Doswell is
confident that his Varsity Thunderbirds will squelch the Crimson
Tide of Victoria when the two
teams clash in the first McKechnie
Cup match of the season at Varsity Stadium on Saturday at 2:30.
The McKechnie Cup champions
of last year were the first squad
to bring the historic trophy across
the pond since Varsity's famous
"wonder team" turned the trick in
the 1936-37 season. Although the
series is expected to be much
closer thia year, the 'Birds are favored to nose out both Vancouver
and Victoria and cop their second
successive  crown.
Doswell has five veterans returning from last year's roster and
Reps.
DECIDES STARTERS
After juggling tho forwards
around considerably, Doswell fin-
idly decided on his starting lineup.
In tho front row will be Bob
Lawson, dependable veteran who
has played McKechnie Cup rugby
for the past three seasons, with
Tom McLaughlan, and Barrie
Morris. McLaughlan is perhaps
