 "King" Cole
In Debate
• A PROGRAM of compulsory
military service was enacted at
the Parliamentary Foruin meeting
noon Thursday.
Maintaining that lack of preparedness among the Allies was thc
biggest mistake and handicap they
made, "King" Cole, the Prime Minister, led his party to victory on
the motion "that Canada adopt ■*
program of compulsory military
training for all physically fit men
on reaching the age of 18, or at
high school graduation, whichever
comes later."
Tony Scott, Leader of the Opposition, asserted that such a program is the worst possible way to
gain world security. He stated
that six years after their one-year
training all the men would be totally useless for military purposes.
"If Canada is to be a full-
fledged nation, she must be prepared to accept her national responsibilities," stated Prime Minister Cole, when he referred to the
need to put teeth into the resolutions of the Security Council of
the United Nations.
Scott quoted General Frederick
von Bernhardt as saying that "It
is therefore the moral duty of the
State to train as many of its countrymen as possible in the use of
arms, not only because of the prospect of war, but that they may
share in the benefits of military
service." Germans, like the Nazis
of today, are the result of such a
program. Scott said that we
should steer clear of such a step.
Memorial Gift Of
A New Telescope
• STUDENTS IN Astronomy at
the University of British Columbia will soon be able to make
planetary observations right from
the campus by means of their own
powerful telescope, a gift to the
Physics Dapartment by Mrs. Kathleen M. Taylor.
"A special dome will be constructed to house the instrument,
a modern 5" Zeiss," said Dr. A. M.
Crooker, professor in ths Department of Physics.
"We are extremely grateful to
Mrs. Taylor and to her son Major
Peter Taylor for thsir vjry generous gift to the university," President N. A. M. MacKenzie stated.
"The instrument will be invaluable for teaching purposes, and
for certain solar research problems,"
The gift is made in memory ■:■{
Mrs. Taylor's husband, the late
Alfred J. T. Taylor. A special
plaque will be engraved for it,
and it will be known as the "Taylor Telescope."
For Dance
• A LIMITED numbjr of tickets
at 75 cents per couple for the
Veterans' Dance are still available
in the Legion Hut or the quad.
The dance, sponsored by the
campus branch of the Legion but
not limited to Legion members,
will be held in Brock Hall from
9:30 to  11:30  tonight.
Arrangements have b^en made
with the University Dance Orchestra for music and with Frank
Underhill and his subterannean
coffee crew for catering.

•    WE ALL KNEW that there was a tough transportation problem involved in getting out
to Varsity these days.
But not that tough!
That just about summed up the amazed reaction of thousands of undergraduates this
week as they gazed upon the 1912 Model T touring Ford which daily carries Commerceman
Johnny Long to—and from—the UBC campus.
Probably the oldest car now run
ning in B.C., the wide-open, flim-
sily-topped, brass-bound Ford is
attracting bts of attention these
days in the parking lot.
It attracted even larger crowds
last Wednesday when Long showed it off at the start and finish of
the cross-country.
When he returned to the campus
in September after two years
wavy-navy service, Long, like a
lot of other students looked around
for transportation. A little "luckier" than the rest, he recently got
a lead on the whereabouts of the
Ford, then resting on blocks on an
estate  near  Nanaimo.
First registered in this province
in January, 1913. its right-hand
drive was designed for B.C.'s old
highway laws. The car had been
used for a more-than-normal-life-
time by its original owner, then
kept after his death as part of thc
Its narrow tires and wooden-
spoked wheels have rolled over
only 5000 miles, as far as anyone
can tell.
Long snapped at the chance to
buy the relic for $50 -and had it
shipped t o Vancouver. After a
little cranking, he managed to drive
it off the ferry.
And he's been driving It ever
since—"25 to 30 m.p.h. on the
stretch and at least 40 m.p.h. down-
hill."He gets about 12 miles to the
"I don't run it in a car chain",
Long told the Ubyssey, but I do
usually bring out a few friends
now and then."
Despite the low mileage per gallon. Long finds his jalopy rather
economical. He .should, when you
consider that it's too old to be
insured and that the yearly license
costs only $9.20.
Though the headlights have been
modernized with electricity, the
tail-lights still run on kerosene,
which latter fact caused much a-
musement to a cop who challenged
Long the other night to ask "Where
i.i the tail light?"
"The coul-oil  has  burned out,"
smiled Johnny.
Replying "how the hell do you
get the whole thing to run?" the
cop   laughed   the  matter   off  and
went his way.
The proud owner reporis only
r. ne other incident with his possession. One day last week he
tried to park it downtown, attracted a huge crowd, became embarrassed, and drove back home.
Long admits he might sell, if the
offer is good enough. But as soon
ns he's completed his intention to
paint it white, camouflage it, and
name it after his old corvette
"H.M.C.S. Battleford", on which
hi. served as gunnery officer, then
i»'. doubtful if any price would
tempt him.
At any rate, he's figuring on

•   A BI-MONTHLY publication "The Legionette" has been
published in the Legion office on the campus and is now
being mailed to members of the University Branch of the
Canadian Legion.
The three-page mimeographed
news-letter which has been initiated because "Of insufficient space
in the Ubyssey for complete coverage of Legion activities on and
off the campus," will be reviewed
by the Undergraduate Societies
Committee and later by the Student Council of the Alma Mater
The first edition of the paper,
published this week, states on the
front page that "The 'Legionette'
is in no way intended as a rival
of the 'Ubyssey'."
Although the new publication
has been sanctioned by the Administration, some student officials are worried* that it might
come into conflict with Article 14
of the AMS* Constitution which
states that:
. "No publication 01 advertisements whatsoever shall be carried
on or distributed and no member
shall sell or attempt to sell or dispose of any publication or advertisements on the University Campus without first having secured
permission by resolution of the
Students' Council."
Legion officials feel that inasmuch an their organization is not
under the jurisdiction of the AMS
the bylaw does not apply to them,
especally as their new paper is
mailed to the members.
Tony Greer, student president of
the Legion branch, stated yesterday that "The Ubyssey is for all
the students; the Legionette is for
our members."

Little Honor
With Student
Card Fiends
Lounge card players have
lots of skill but little honour.
At least lt seems that way to
student president Allan Ainsworth, who yesterday ruled in
future all students borrowing
packs from thc AMS office will
be asked to leave their AMS
passes with the office workers
until the cards are returned in
good order.
Ainsworth Issued the edict
after ruefully surveying the
results of six weeks of card
lending activities. Already two
dozen decks, which are purchased out of general student
association funds, have mysteriously disappeared.
Until now all loans have been
made In good faith on the honour system but office officials
have found that it simply doesn't work.
•   THE VARSITY Dance orchestra is no longer under the sponsorship of the AMS.
If present discussions are successful Dave McLellan's band will
be paid union wages for all varsity engagements.
This measure has become necessary in order to have union and
non-union musicians play together. "Under the existing agreement
such an arrangement is impossible," reported Garry MlUer of
the AMS. "Union members will not
play for nothing here when they
can get union wages downtown."
From now on the band will make
its own engagements the same as
any union orchestra.
This arrangement will apply
enly to the dance orchestra and
will not affect the concert orchestra or any of the other musical
•   SCREAMS AND SQUEALS, above the usual din, emanated from the Caf throughout Thursday morning.
Unenlightened spectators, who had only heard of Greeks
from college profs, wondered if this were a minor V-J day
or a mathematics convention, with various letters of the
Greek alphabet being shouted with varying pronunciations.
Participants, 132 girl pledges of ■
the nine sororities, looked extremely happy as they squeezed
through caf throngs. So-called silence imposed by the Pan-Helen-
ic Association prevented verbal
congratulations from sorority
members to their new pledges.
This partly accounted for vocal
tremours quivering even the Caf.
Tension of a long rushing period
had eased at last, The question,
looming since rushing began, the
subject of much thought and discussion, was finally answered.

I, THE UBYSSEY, Saturday, November 3,1945, Page 2,
Why Abandon Open House?
It is too bad that 5600 students have crowded Open House off the agenda for this term.
The decision of the University of British
Columbia committee on public relations to
forget about Open House until the spring
may be a wise time and trouble saver but
will probably be a big disappointment to a
large section of the downtown public curious
to know what is really happening beyond the
university gates.
It is granted that Open House would put
added strain on the faculty for one afternoon, but if the students themselves were
to organize the program, and display the aspect of the ceremony pruned down to a minimum, it could have been scheduled for the
middle of November.
As several people interpret it, tjie idea
behind Open House is not to present displays, but to allow the public to watch stu
dents at work. A "Student Working, Keep
Out", sign hung on an overcrowded laboratory door, would probably make as great
an impression on visitors as an open workshop which some science students admittedly wouldn't have time to sponsor.
Although Open House  plans are to be
brought out of an airing in January, the.
chances are that a heavy post-Christmas enrollment might put the program in the "out
of the question" category again.
However, there should be some definite
allowance made for Open House, if not this
year, at least next term, so that the public
can have a chance to see what visiting chancellor Cody of Toronto described as "the almost miraculous improvisation to meet
emergency needs of the University of British Columbia Campus."
Criticism Versus Construction
It's easy to criticize groups and organizations when they are attempting to cope
with an impossible situation, such as meeting
the demands of over 5,000 students for food,
books, and transportation, when you are
standing, not sitting, back on the sidelines
being coped with.
Nerves that jingle jangle jingle are public property, and an inevitable result when
each student is jostling against 5,599 others
for seats in the library, and queues in the
Patience is just what the doctor orders at
this point as a soothing sedative, and although the Ubyssey has never in the past or
will never in the future be above prodding
an inquisitive finger into the middle of snarls
and tangles in campus life, we have felt the
detrimental effect of overcrowding in our
small corner and view with sympathy the
heroic "finger in the dyke" activities of such
people and groups as Frank Underhill and
the cafeteria staff, the employment bureau,
the newly-closed book exchange, and the
Tne now-famous case of the book store
comes to mind, and although a column formerly printed in the paper was a well-written
and sincere expression of the writer's opinion, and as such was worthy of publication,
we are inclined to think that the store has
been operating on a full steam ahead basis
and doing the best it can.
Although constructive criticism is health,,
it is much too easy to criticize.
In The Line Of Fire
EDITOR'S NOTE: The following editorial
is a reprint from the Manitoban, University
of Manitoba publication.
Service to the Community
• ELSEWHERE in this paper you will find
details regarding community service for
women students. This replaces War Work,
and it is desirable that every coed register
next Wednesday.
Surely there is no need to point out the
urgent need for a continuation of valuable
community services that have been flourishing in the past few years. Women of Winnipeg have made for themselves an enviable
and proud record of magnificent achievements. We, as younger women, must carry on
that tradition, and at the same time perform
valuable service to society as a whole. Every
coed has a responsibility, and I maintain that
to shirk it is a breach of faith with all those
people who have worked so hard to reach
the present standard of communty welfare.
The fascinating variety of jobs offers
choices for every taste, and valuable practice in almost any line of work you may be
studying at University. Thus at the same
time that you are fulfilling your duties as a
citizen you are receiving practical training.
I would draw to your attenton that persons trained in WAD work will be most
welcome at the hospitals, though there will
be no more WAD training classes given. If
you can serve in this capacity, you will be
' doing a great deal indeed.
Winnipeg's youth organizations are badly
in need of help and co-operation from intelligent students, and positions are waiting at
the YWCA for all who are interested. We
realize now how important these organizations are, and no co-ed can dispute the fact
that her capabilities would be of real help.
They would, and if the co-eds cooperate they
will, show that students of the University
are ready and willing to pit their strength in
the interests of the community.
Please understand the importance of Wednesday's registration, make up your mind
what you want to do, sign your name and
keep the promise you make. The Women's
Association is asking for your help, and the
community needs your service.—MEB.
• IF MY MEMORY serves me right I had
promised a discourse on the Club as
the subject of this week's essay. Alas, it
must be postponed, for an occasion of great
significance, at which I was an interested
spectator, exacts a commentary.
I had anticipated Congregation for several
months and had awaited eagerly the advent
of an historic and traditional ceremony, the
like of which I hold dear, Indeed Wednesday
morning last, as I took my solitary walk in
the Botanical Gardens, I was unaccountably
seized with sudden exuberance, to the extent that I removed my black Homberg,
waved it thrice in the air, and set it squarely
upon my head again.
Very Moderate Souls
I join with all moderate souls who deplore
such excessive display of emotions, but let
me declare in my defense that I seldom make
such a spectacle of myself
I was agreeably surprised, on entering the
Gymnasium, to see that a group of musicians, equipped with harps, cymbals, and a
zither, had taken up their positions in the
hall. On the entrance of the graduates they
struck up an air much to my liking. My joy
wa.s overwhelming, and it was not until the
selection was completed that 1 realized I
had committol the indiscretion of tapping
out the full measure of the piece wilh my
Imagine my elation when I marked among
the distinguished guests Captain Percival
Westmoreland, elder brother of D'Arcy the
freshman member of the Club. He was in
the uniform of the Royal Militia, and looked
extremely fit.
Army of the Nile
This young man won a Royal citation for
distinguished service with Wavell's Army of
the Nile during the campaign in East Africa.
He sallied forth one black night and single-
handed captured seven hundred and three
of the enemy. For his efforts his commander,
in a transport of gratitude, offered him anything his heart desired. "Then I shall have
sir," Westmoreland replied, "a bottle of port,
a pipe of tobacco, and a volume of Rupert
Brooke." And having been granted his request he sat down, began the evening with
his books and ended it in his cups,
Dice and Drink
I was fortunate enough to be in his company at the Congregation Banquet, where I
cultivated a great liking for the young gentleman. My heart grows sad when I compare
him with his young brother D'Arcy who,
alas, has thought for little else save dice and
As I sat in the Alcove at Underbill's yesterday, I gazed attentively at young Westmoreland, trying to search out some good
in the lad. He sprung up of an instant, declared he wa.s damnably dry, demanded the
loan of a sovereign and was gone.
Next day I .shall proceed with a discussion of the club, and its many illustrious
• Beauty-OnThe-Sp#t
•    I VIEW WITH ALARM the deplorable decline in the
moral standards  of  the  students  of  the  University   of
British Columbia.
This is no doubt an aspect of the general instabality of
modern civilization. Man needs some authority to guide
him in his everyday relations. Without some faith life becomes void of meaning.
Our parents had a stern code
by which their lives were governed, but our society has destroyed
this. We seem to prefer pseudo-
This very campus is rife with
men and women who accept cussing, gambling, drinking, and a
generally lax sex-lite in the same
sense that they accept the automobile and the aeroplane. No relief from immorality can be hoped
for until we return to the stern
religious and social rules of the
turn of the century.
Some people blame this present
clay moral laxity on the so-called progress of civilization, the revaluation of the women's place in
the world with the emphasis on
i quality, i.ncl the excited pace
which faster moving world events
produce in us, I believe it i.s due
to ignorance, indifference, and only
partially matured thinking, for it
is possible, even in modern so:-
icty. to live by the best precepts
i f thc church and of philosophy.
As university students we must
arouse ourselves and be leaders
in a great movement to purify
< ur society. But first each must
examine his own soul.
Strive for clean, wholesome
living. Striye for a return to the
appreciation of religious princip-
plcs. Take stock of yourself and
esk "Are not the pleasures of the
mind more satisfying to the soul
than mere transient pleasures of
the flesh?"
Modern youth cries out for leadership towards an understanding
of true spiritual values. Come
then, let us to the task.
As one perhaps more intimately
connected with the good life than
most, I feel myself peculiarly
suited to bring this message to
my fellow students.
I wish to take this opportunity
to thank Mr. Ferry, editor of this
issue, for providing me with the
means of expressing my views on
this vital subject.

• LETTERS To The Editor
Dear Madam:
I wish to express my appreciation for the very worthwhile column "Week-end Review and Preview," by Lee Gidney, which you
have added to your publication.
While a column dealing with
activities not centred on the cam-
rus might be considered by some
to.be outside the scope of a university newspaper, nevertheless, I
believe such a column will serve a
hitherto neglected student interest
centered in the arts, and will raise
\he standard of The Ubyssey another notch.
November 1, 1945.
Dear Madam:
* SH !fl V
Editor,   The   Ubyssey.
Dear Madam:
Rei)ly to John Green
Japan faces starvation this winter. A Province editorial says:
"Japan's home islands are faced
with the grim fact that they can
produce only about 15 per cent of
their inhabitants' food requirements."
10,000 Japanese-Canadian men,
women and children face immin-
i nt deportation to Japan. It i.s
quite possible that a large percentage will die there of starvation.
Does John Green favour this?
Peobably not. Whatever our opinion on.tha eventual disposition of
these 10.000 Japanese-Canadians,
we all ought fo oppose their immediate deportation.
One ea.slain university is planning to auul a petition to Ottawa
urging at least a delay in deportation. If a large majority uf UBC
.-Indents a.-s.nt, we might do the
.■nine thing. Few could disappr.-ve
.-uch a moderate demand.
The rather broad statement that
"no one objects to the Greek letter societies" need be narrowed.
This statement made editorially
in Thursday's Ubyssey could not
be allowed to pass unchallenged.
I, for one, do object to the Greek
letter societies for the simple reason that they are undemocratic.
This writer calmly admits that
these societies "can never allow a
purely demcoratic spirit among
students" a fact which does not
seem to upset him or her at all.
It is just this attitude that is too
prevalent in the hearts and minds
of many Canadians. It is a primary reason for a divided Canada
and for a Canada abounding ia
race prejudice. This don't-caro-
let-it-be attitude is encouraged o.i
the campus and other campusss
where Greek letter societies are
found. I say, do away with them
and in their place build organizations on democratic ideals. I
would like to see a purely democratic spirit allowed to flourish on
this and other campuses in Canada.
Since r«jry.

•   DID SOMEONE say that sports are booming?
Those men from "mighty" Oregon gave me quite a surprise t'other day when I read a little note on their Daily
Emerald's sports page.
Seems that Coach Howard Hobson has settled a sore
point with tiie faculty for this year's hoop season. His cage
characters will miss a minimum of lectures when they make
their various trips during the next few months.
No, they're not going to take their professors along with
them,—they're just going to cut that travelling time short by
making all their trips in Mainliners this year.
They take to the air for their first flip on Friday, November 16, when they fly northward to our own campus on
the first leg of their pre-season tour. They tackle the Thunderbirds in a two-game series November 16 and 17.
Grid, Hoop and Dancing
But the UBC hoopers open the inter-collegiate season
here next Saturday night when they take the Vikings of
Western Washington State Teachers' College into camp.
The 'Birds lost the opener to the Bellingham boys, 60-56,
at WWC's Homecoming last season, but bounced back with
a 72-56 victory game in the return match on the UBC maple
As a matter of fact, the UBC campus will probably be
overrun with sports fans next Saturday, what with the Hardy
Cup final slated in the Stadium at 2:30 and the initial campus
cage contest in the gym at 8 o'clock.
The Big Block Club, which is coming back into it's prewar prominence on the campus, will wind up the day with
the "Lettermen's Limp" in the Brock. Everybody'U get a
chance to meet some of the stars, for all the grid and hoop
players will be there.
Cleaning Off The Cuff
Yes, sports are really booming . . . Canadian football is
hitting the front page of most of the Eastern college sheets
. . . They're getting grid off to a great post-war start back
there . . . Which reminds me that next Saturday's Western
Canada final may be broadcast across the Dominion by the
CBC . . . Incidentally, the Thunderbirds may play an American football tilt on December 1 . . . They've been invited to
play the Bremerton Rockets in Seattle on that date . . . And
UBC's English rugby enthusiasts have been working overtime, too . . . They're making preparations for resuming
World Cup competition with the California Universities . . .
The Thunderbird hoopers have dreams of a big Christmas
trip . .. They are already scheduled to meet Oregon on January 2 and 3, but they may also play Bremerton's casaba
squad and the Fort Lewis Warriors, and wind up the holidays
with a flip down to San Francisco to meet another pair of
teams . .. Did someone say that sports are booming?
Rabat trainsigridmen
for hardy cup playoff
• UBC'S THUNDERBIRD gridders head into the final phase
of their training grind this weekend confident that they
can beat whichever Prairie team makes the trip to the coast.
With only three practices left before the first game of
the "do-or-die" stand next Wednesday, the 'Birds are looking
much sharper than at any previous time this season.
Bolstered by four outstanding
gridders who failed to turn out at
the start of the season, the UBC
entry in the Hardy Cup race is
finally catching on to the Rabat-
style of offense, which calls for
strict timing.
Reg Clarkson has been looking
exceptionally good in practices
and will share the tailback spot
with Rex Wilson, who played himself out in the Saskatoon game
trying to carry practically the
whole load of the Thunderbird offense.
Johnny Gray, a lad with four
years experience with Kabat-
coached teams, will round out the
aerial offense. Previously, Dmitri
Goloubef and Cliff Wyatt were the
only two who could gather in a
pass. Now with three good receivers on the field at once, the
'Birds should smother the Prairie
team under an avalanche of forwards.
Gus. Carmichael, veteran of prewar Varsity teams, will share the
line-plunging duties with Phil
Guman, while Bill Sainas will
shift back to his former spot .it
end. Carmichael, a 230-pounder,
will add a lot of weight nnd power
to the 'Bird backfield. Tony Mc-
Lorg, the fourth recruit, will probably play right half  or tailback.

Both Cagette
Quintets Lose
• BOTH OF Varsity's co-ed
teams took part in the play as
the Cagette Hoop league got under
way Wednesday night at King
Edward gym.
The Snnior B's came up against
the toughest competition they are
likely to meet in the form of tho
mighty Hedlunds' team. The Dominion champs were too good
for UBC's inexperienced squad,
chalking up a score of 22-6 in the
first quarter, and ending with a
69-21 count.
However, considering this was
the first game of the season, and
the first time the girls have played
together as a team, great improvement can be looked for in the next
Lw games, and the Meat Packers
will probably have a reil game on
their hands when Varsity meets
them again. *
In spite of the lop-si led score,
Pat Mcintosh, Nora McDermott,
and Winnie Tait showed good form
for Varsity, nnd gave promise of
the  hotter  things   to  come.

• MERALOMAS, tied with Varsity Thunderbirds and
Varsity Vets for first place in the Miller Cup Series,
will attempt to solidify their position when they tangle with
the reinforced UBC fifteen at University Stadium this afternoon at 2:30.
Other games slated for this afternoon, feature Varsity opposing the cellar-dwellling ex-Britannia crew at Brockton
v Oval at 2:00 and the strong Varsity Vets facing Rowing
Club immediately after.
Meralomas will have their hands
full when they take the field
against UE'C as their opponents
have been shaping up into a
strong contender during the past
two weeks. In addition they have
the starry Tom McCusker out in
uniform  at  last.
McCusker is one of thc best
wings in thc league, leading the
circuit in scoring last year. All
who have played against him know
that he is one of the hardest men
to stop once he is on his way.
The Thunderbirds have been
weakened to quite an extent
through injuries which occurred
in the Homecoming tilt last week.
However, it is not expected that
ex-Britannia will give them very
much trouble since they have
scored but three points all season.
Those missing from the lineup
are Barney Curby, out with a severe charley horse and Jack Armour, who was kicked in the back.
Earl Butterworth will take Cur-
by's place and Don Atherton, who
was out most of last year with a
broken collar bone, will hold down
one of the wing positions,
With veteran Bill Wallace commencing to hit his stride once
more, things should not go too badly with the 'Birds. Bill steadies his
mates from his tailback position in
the scrum and for this reason he
has been one of Varsity's stars for
the past three years.

DRUB CKNW, 36-23
• VARSITY Inter B's took their
second straight hoopla contest
by downing the CKNW Radio Rascals with a score of 36-23 at King
Ed. Gym Thursday night.
It was an easy win for Varsity.
They took a 14-2 edge in the first
quarter and, never looking back,
went on to an easy victory.
Scoring honors for Varsity for
the night were shared by John
Forsythe and Gordie Selman, both
swishing the net for 10 points. Not
far behind, bracketed at 6, ware
Boyes and Mathews.
The Radio Rascals kept trying
; 11 the way but were no match for
the Varsity sharpshooters. Hedlund was tops in the scoring column with 9 points, followed closely by Mosdell with 6.
Meanwhile, the Varsity Sophs
were barely edged by Arrows in
their Inter A tilt, a last-minute
drive just failing as the Transfer-
men took a 21-18 win.
Arrows won the contest in the
second quarter when they held the
UBC squad to a single point while
rolling up seven for their own total.   They led 12-5 at half time.
But with the count at 14-5 just
after the breather, UBC ran up
seven counters without answer la
the third stanza. But the campus
outfit bogged down there, and
couldn't take the lead.
