Arts Elections
t
Due Tuesday
Members of the USC have approved the Idea of having Art's
elections on Tuesday, November
•26, in Arts 100, since the absence
of Art's representatives on USC has
hampered the committee's operations.
The Art's executive st the present time is almost non-exlstant,
since two of its members have resigned,
to the work of USC.
The meeting stressed the fact
that since Arts Is the largest faculty on the campus it is important that lt be fully represented on
such an important body as USC.
The committee, to facilitate the
elections has drawn up the following procedure which they advise any one wishing to nominate
persons for the executive to use.
1. Oet ten names to second the
nominee.
2. Write out his qualifications
and why he should be elected.
1 Submit the information to
the AMS Office addressed to USC
Chairman any time before 12:30
p.m. November tS.

any party," he said.
The other officers of the Soc-
ia'ist Club are: Jack Magulre,
vice-president; Phyllis Webb, secretary; with Bert Brockhouse and
Murray Bryce also on the executive.
Council Builds
Ticket Office
Both sides of the Quad notlct
board will be replaced by ticket
offices if AMS plans materialize.
Tentative plans would enlarge
the present structure by building
ticket offices the full length ot
either side. Notice boards could
then be placed on the outside
walls between the wickets. '
Tickets of all kinds would be on
sale here. It Is expected that the
lost and found departments would
also be located in the Quad, thus
alllevating the congestion in tht
AMS office.
Mr. John D. Lee, building superintendent will be approached
for an estimate of the cost of the
proposed building. Application
will then be made to the admlnle-
tration to cover the expense incurred by the project, AMS president Ted Kirkpatrick announced
Wednesday. Klrkpatrlck pointed
out that the application may be
declined due to the comprehensive construction program already
in progress. In this event the AMS
will bear the expense, he added.
Meeting Plans
Political Board
Representatives from five political groups will meet tomorrow
noon to decide on the proposed
board to regulate political questions on the campus.
The board will be organized if
the mctlon is passed. Otherwise
the present system will be usea.
Two delegates from each of th*
five grous will be present'at the
meeting. These groups include the
Parliamentary Fcrum, International Relations Club, Social Problems Club, Student Christian
Movement and the University
Socirlist Forum. The latter was
orgainized recently.
Art Group Meets
Tomorrow Noon

N. A. M. MacKenzie and honorary
chairmanship of Dr. G. M. Shrum,
commenred its program of regular Sunday afternoon meetings at
the "Gables" on University Boulevard last Sunday.
Norwegian Student Tours UBC
Aasmund Dale, a student of the
University of Oslo, Norway, waa
on the campus yosterday as a part
of his plan to see some of the
world before he concludes his education.
Den McRae, treasurer AMS,
showed Mr, Dale the campus,
which he said is very large and
spacious as contrasted with that of
(Ho.
He is in the history-philosophy
faculty and has completed his first
year of study. His trip began
about three months ago in a ship
bound for Vancouver to be repaired.
"Ships can be repnired in other
ports," Ihe explained, "but you
have to wait a year for them."
Thus, it was much quicker for
them to sail through the Panama to
Vancouver. Mr, Dale is working
has passage at a "job in the ship's
saloon."
In simple, direct and clear English, Mr. Dale said that the problems of students in Norway are
similar to those found here. Before the war the University of
Oslo had about four thousand students, and there are now about
seven thousand crowded into the
limited space.
In speaking of Uie economic conditions of Norway today, he expressed the belief that Norway ls
getting over the war period. He
mentioned that in one of his last
letters i'rom heme, lie was told
that they could now get meat without coupons.
''I belinve," he said, "that Norway is one of the best situated of
tho occupied countries."
Ho then went on to explain that
tho bombers did mest of their
work on the harbours rather than
, n the adjacent towns. THE UBYSSEY, Thursday, November 21, 1946.  Page 2.

IT'S DUE IN JANUARY
The conclusion of the current phase of
the War Memorial Gymnasium drive will
surely be cause for relief, not only for the
students but also for the general public.
The people who have been carrying on
the campaign need a rest from their efforts,
and the others require a respite from the
carryings on.
' For month after month, "Gym Drive}" has
been dinned into the organs of sense up to
the point where they have lost their sensibility.
Now, the members of the Alma Mater
Society must pause and see what has been
the result of all this effort. For one thing,
11 is quite apparent that the venture has
fallen far short of its financial mark. For
•nother, It ls quite obvious that the drive as
constituted doeg not meet with the approval
of every student, or of even the great majority of students.
While the laat receipts are being counted
and the last bills paid, it will remain for the
people who are directing the campaign to
ponder over the situation. One very healthy
sign has come from their direction in the
past week—the willingness to bring out into
the open for the first time some of thu
basic reasons for student apathy towards
the drive. Now that those powers-that-be
are willing to face reality, instead of beating
their chests and imploring all to fall in step,
something may be salvaged from the apparent wreckage. j
Also to be commended is the determination
to ensure that the Memorial aspect of the |
campaign is not neglected, with the parallel
intention of squashing any interests which
would turn the effort into a mere excuse to
build a larger gymnasium at any cost.
Meanwhile, the general student body can
save a lot of time and bother by being content to wait for the final reports to be made
to them in January.

TO BAR CITY'S WATER
Those fortunate enough to hear the CBC
Stage 47 play Sunday evening last must
oetrainly have been impressed with the timeliness of Henrik Ibsen's "An Enemy of the
People" It bears a remerkable parallel to the
controversy over chlorination, which last
summer occupied the attention of press and
pulpit The weight of competent medical
advice was countered by "public opinion",
and chlorination of Vancouver's water supply, forced through aa a war measure, was
abandoned.
Whatever the indignant citizens who like
"pure" water think, the U.S. Public Health
Service feels that olir water is really "unfit
for human consumption." To make the viewpoint one of apparent authority, the deputy
minister of health at Ottawa, G. W. Cameron, also believes that Vancouver water is
"almost continually contaminated."
THE IMPORTED EXPERTS
Despite the favourable judgment passed
on Vancouver's water supply by the imported experts last summer, suxicient doubt now
aeems to exist to warrant re-opening the
case. Should this occur, it will be interesting
to watch the outcome of the struggle between public and expert opinion. The score
at present is l-to-0 in favor of the public.

Since the threat of more heavy snowfalls
(perhaps an additional half an inch) exists,

dollar bylaw designed to provide all Vancouver citizens with snow ghoes, bear rugs,

"Connie Co-ed" in The Sun deserves a

he boomed over the mike." (It was all in
fun, Mrs. W.; honest it was.)

Letters To The Editor
LUXURY DRIVE
Dear Sir:
In a recent editorial in the
Ubyssey the statement was made:
"llie time has come for UBC's
students to face the truth about
the War Memorial Oymnaslum
Drive." I agree. But let's not deceive ourselves about the Issue.
Why shouud a public institution
De built from the proceeds of
raffles, rummage sales and beauty
sontests? If the gymnasium ls
ergently needed at this time, it
Should be bu'lt from public funds
and not from charity. If the gymnasium is not urgently needed,
then it should not be built at all.
Where did the idea for this scheme
originate? A ballot vote of student
opinion was never taken. Why not?
There are better ways of honour-
lag the dead than by the erection
of a bulding which will benefit
less than one per cent of the province's population. Spending half a
million dollars on the luxury of a
gymnasium is a vulgarity at this
time when veterans families are
forced to live in attics, cellars, and
chicken coops.
Effle Smallwood
POISE AND BEAUTY
Dear Sir:
I am wondering if the fact was
made clear to the other universities, that poise and personality
count higher than actual beauty
in last week's contest. Marlon
Albert had them all beaten on
poise and personality, but I got the
impression that all the other campuses sent out their best women
with an eye on facial beauty and
figure, which in my opinion were
superior to the cheseu queen. In
future- to avoid any misinterprets t on of beauty standards, a list of
the percentages allotted for each
point of so called beauty should
be forwarded to each competing
university before they choose their
contestants  and thus clear up the
shadow of doubt which exists in
many minds other than my own.
I am terribly sorry that Mr. Gait
had to make such an Ignoble display of his Ignorance In last week's
Ubyssey. This batttle of the beauties has been up to now, kept on
a high cultural level, with all
parties displaying good sportsmanship. Mr. Gait probably thought
that he was kicking the seven
Regina lads while they were down.
He is sadly In error, for despite
the U. of S. refusal to enter the
contest, the boys procured an entry
from Regina College and not only
that, they have devoted their own
precious time and even money to
make this contest the success it
was. Would that there could be a
few more aggressive people to Instigate such publicized endeavour,
instead of such critical, satirical
and stagment Individuals as Mr.
Gait.
R. M. Goodmurphy
On The Wagon
SIGNBOARD
. . .with DON STAINSBY
The Passing
Not so very long ago, the Keeper
of the Wassail Bowl renounced all
seasons but Autumn. It is now with
a considerable feeling of joy that
.the Wagon takes off its wheels,
exchanges them for runners, and
becomes a sled.
Sunday last the Wagon's driver
was Informed that Vancouver was
having snow. Due to a weekend
trip, the Wagon knew nothing
about it. Sunday night on its return, the Wagon found that its
wheels were the only logical means-
oi motion.
Monday morning, however, and
much to its chagrin, the Wagon
found that its wheels were a rather
ridiculous appendage. Leaving the
Wagcn behind, then, this particular
Tote climbed into a car and came
to the campus by way of Marine
Drive and Spanish Banks.
Of A Year
Even Mr. Klenman's exuberant
description of the beauties of
Spring failed to make an impression. What, Mr. Norman Q. Wassail
Bowl, can compare with the beauties of a drive along the sea shore
in November, when the trees lining
the impressive Spanish Banks cliffs
are denuded of their leaves and
are fondly coated with dazzling
white snow? And what, in the
name of contrasts, can compare to
the paradox of an erstwhile bathing beach trying vainly to protrude
through a blanket of the white
crystals, which had taken advantage
of a low tide to find a resting
place? Or what can equal the beauties of the distant North Chore
mountains, when they too, pleasing
every sklier's heart, are putting on
their winter clothing?
Yuletide And New Year's
The coming of the snow, not by
rny means an annual event In Vancouver, symbolizes the coming ot
winter; the coming of winter;
brings to natives of the Interior
and tne East a warming memory of
the days gone by when they could
don the'r skates on the river's
bank, and skate practically without
limit ln any direction that happened to fit their fancy.
The coming of winter also brings
thought  of  the Holiday  Season.
Whether think'ng in terms of the
great Christian meaning of the holiday, or just thinking in terms of
Ray Milland, everyone begins to
glow inside and to make prepare
tlons—preparations that are incomplete to many minds if they do not
include snow and frosty breath.
New Year's too, comes to mind
hand in hand with snow and lea
and cold on the outside and
warmth on the inside.
Klenman Makes A Point
To college students, snow means
winter and winter means Christ-
Imas, but alas| Christmas also means
exams. Norm, my rather effusive
dent of the Autumn, you could
have scored a point for your fsded
/section of the year if you had Just
thought a bt about your subject—
I a thing which you unfortunately
j neglected to do.
:' Even if you had capitalised on
your seeming advantage, Mr. Klenman, of the Fall being the time
when school has Just started and
exams are far away, your plot
would have been nevertheless
foiled.
The Wagon is wholeheartedly be
hind Winter, when lt can become
a sleigh; included in winter, as
heretofore mentioned, is the Holiday Season; included in the holiday season is New Year's. Just
cf ter New Year's, with hearts still
aglow with pleasant memories and
exams just as far ln the distant
future as they are in the Fall,
Toties flock back to the campus.
Is there ever such a time, once
the Wassll Bowl has been emptied,
that peoples are so much in love
with people? The snow is not cold,
Mr. Klenman; lt is just the all-
important setting in the happiest,
most remembered chapter in the
novel of the Undergraduate Year.

The possibility of providing
Group Health Insurance for University students has been investigated by Branch 72. The need foi
this type of insurance Is apparent
when it is realized that one serious
accident or slskness could wipe
out savings which had been earmarked for living expenses. Thl
type of insurance Is especially
ft eded by merried stude ts under
DVA grants and single students
who are working their way
thrcugh university.
The North Pacific Health and
Accident Association offers s
group plan to all university students which covers accident, sickness, surgery, maternity, etc. at
rates within the reach of every
student's budget.
A representative of this association will present the details o>
this plan at a meeting Tuesday,

Report Stresses
Need For Relief
Weekly reports from ISS representatives in all parts of Europe
emphasize the urgent need for relief for students In all European
countries.
Gerard Pelletler, ISS secretary
from Italy reports, "In the Universities of Rome and Naples almost two-thirds of the students
come from neighboring province*.
40,000 students must find soma
shelter ln those already overcrowded towns.
From Howard Reed in Athen*,
Greece comes the report, "Athens
is swarming with a population
double its 1939 size. Students find
their acccmodation in railroad
stations or on the counter of a
store. At present the canteen of
the University Club feeds 3,000."
Edmond Ferenczi In Budapest
states that "The university sltu-
ction in Hungary is the most serious in Eastern Europe. More than
15,000 university students are little better than beggars, possessing
only one suit or dress. The University may shut down this wlntft
from lack of fuel and lectures e>-
often cancelled on rainy days because of the great rents in the
roofs."
From Yenan comes reports of a
university housed in ten floors of
caves. A Berlin arts student is required to labor for ISO hours at
reconstruction, and in Warsaw 75
per cent of the 15,000 students examined by the Central Medical
Commission required medical attention.

Have Troubles
By DAVE DARVILL
"Lost in the . . . "; "Will the
person who took . . . "; "Reward
for the return of my . . . ". These
and other familiar heads may be
read in the classified section of The
Ubyssey, any edition. The people
who write such advertisements
usually do so under the strain of
desperation.
First a concentrated effort to
remember the prevailing circumstances of their loss, then an often
futile trip to the Lost and Found.
From the hundreds of requests for
the return of misplaced articles it
seems an obvious question to ask
how many students are now the
proud possessors of their returned
property.
A quick survey seems to Indicate
a ten-to-one chance for the return
of paraphernalia left on the campus
and in lectures rooms. This would
imply that temptation proves
too much for some who frequent
UBC. On the other hand, your pen
may have rolled into a spacious
crack In the floor, your book may
have been dropped Into a "Magazines for Hospital" bin, and your
raincoat may be hanging on a coat-

the In-between speaker for the
CBC exchange on the Sunday New
York Philharmonic program. They
were the first lectures on music I
ever understood.
SELF-MADE MAN
This self-made man learned his
background   on   the  men   whose
work he plays the hard but profitable way. While other men in
the orchestra which he conducted
for a stock company whiled away
the   time   between   Intermissions
with a poker game, Harry Adaskin sweated out the French language, by h'mself.   For two years
he didn't read a word of Fngllsh.
Thus, when he came to study In
Paris, he was able to understand
bis masters, Challey, Thlbaud and
Enesco, under whom he studied.
A lecture by Adask'n Is a
promise tn anticipate with eagerness. It Is a pleasure to attend
and a lesson for meditation. His
Introduction   often   goes   like
th's:
"We've been going through Hell
th's morning—we've been practising Mozart."
Then he goes on to explain that
Mozart may be played according
to the notes written on the page,
but that the player is really at
fault If the music just sounds
prettv.
VIVACIOUS WIFE
His vivacious and charming dark-
haired wife, who is known professionally as pianist Frances Marr,
accompanies her violinist husband
with the Ane undertsandlng, tonal
and harmonic perception which
only a fine artist can execute.
In speaking of his marriage to
Frances Marr, Mr. Adaskin confides openly:
"We met on a professional engagement."
His usual accompanist was unable to show up for a concert
at wh*ch he was playing. The
substitute accompanist  played
the music so well by sight that
he thought It would be a good
idea to make it permanent.
Mr. Adaskin's whole life has been
devoted to music. But under the
heading of music, he Includes a
thorough knowledge of the entire
culture and life of the times In
which   his   composer   hved   and
wrote. Thus, he has the capacity to
spenk, with first-hand knowledge,
on  the  men  who made  the life
and the manners of a composer's
time. It is this capacity of student
ir   his   art   which   makes   Harry
Adaskin so proficient as a teacher.
STUDIES HISTORY
i     As he  poured  the  last  of his
\ afternoon cup of tea, he explained
hlg study of history. If a man is
to understand the impulse) and
atmosphere which go Into the
creation of a great work of art,
then he must study the history
of the times. If a man understands
these things, he is better sble to
perform a piece of music In something of its spirit of composition.
"A musician," he said, "who
can only play the music is only
half a musician."
He then added that although
the   occasional   genius   might
br'dge t'e gap, the ord'nary
man could never hope to do so.
He firmly established an international reputation for himself as
second violinist with the Hart
House String quartet, a fifteen
year partnership. This group began in 1923 with Adaskin,' de Kresz,
Blackstone and Hambourg, and
played string quartets "lor fun''.
A year later the group wa* financially supported by the Vincent
Masseys and the Massey Foundation. '
VERSATILE VIOLINIST
His experience covers all manner of musical work. He has
played his Guadagnlnl violin
throughout almost the whole numerical range from symphony to
soloist, and numberless combinations of instruments. In 1928 he
played in the Ravel work for harp,
string quartet, flute and clarinet,
under the composer's baton. He has
conducted, commentated and performed through an amazingly varied sequence of musical enterprise.
In February, Mr. and Mrs. Adaskin will go to New York on a
concert tour. Meanwhile, Mr. Adaskin is waiting for the publishers
to end consideration on his book
end, preferably, to publish it. He
wiU call it, "Musically Speaking."

Pacing himself perfectly over the four mile route, volatile
Pat Minchin established himself as lead-off man on the Varsity Cross Country squad, yesterday afternoon, as he romped
over the finish in the terrific time of 22:08 to nose out Bob
Piercy in the sprint by 10 seconds. Minchin and Piercy led
the 15 candidates for the team throughout the gruelling grind,
and as they drew wjthin 500 yards of the finish, Minchin
lengthened his stride over a slight down-grade and roared
through the crisp winter air with a reserve that proved a
Uttle too much for the flaxen-topped ex-Byng runner.
Doug Knott displayed plenty of
condition to stride screes the finish
some 50 yards behind Piercy to
nail down third place on the squad,
while Pete de Vooght outlasted Al
Bain to end up fourth.
Behind Bain, In the sixth position, was Gil Blai.r a member of
the 1944 squad, who crossed the
line in easy fashion, a minute behind the winner. Ken McPherson
completed the roster of the 1940
edition of the road racing representative that Is slated to compete
in Seattle on American Thanksgiving Day, November 28, and thus
reached the UBC team for the
fourth time in his university career.
Jokers Capture
Waterpolo Tilt
Pointing towards a water pole
league after Christmas under the
sponsorship of Ivor Wynn's Intramural Council, an exhibition gamt
was staged at the Crystal Pool
Monday afternoon, when a Joker
sextette turned back Beta Theta
Pi 4-1.
The Jokers served sharp notice
to their intramural rivals that they
would be powerful athletically ln
•very sport, adding the swimming
realm to their dominance of the
track world,
Dick Ellis opened the scoring
for the Joker natators early in the
initial canto whan he blasted a
shot past Dune McGregor ln goal.
Minutes later, Jim Hawthorns
made it 2-0 for the clowns as he
espped a pretty setup play down
the length of ths pool.
ELLIS SCORES AGAIN
nils notched his second marker
In the second quarter to sat'up a
sizeable Joker advantage at this
point, 3-0. However, the Beta'i
stormed back, and Gordie Knowles rifled the rubber from centre-
pool on s bounce shot to narrow
the count to 3-L
A third quarter rally sparked
by Gerry Thomas cinched the contest for the Jokers, since the scheduled fourth session was cancelled because of a lack of leased
time.
The two intramural clubs are
slated to stage a rematch ln the
same Crystal Pool, next Monday
afternoon. The game wu refer-

GYM SCORE CLOCK 'ALMOST HUMAN'
By HAL TENNANT
A new score clock that is almost human is the newest addition to the UBC gymnasium.
For tommorow night, at the Thunderbird's fi rst home conference affair, the clock, installed
on Tuesday, will officially become the time and score recorder   in the Varsity gym.

Arrangements are under way for
an unveiling* ceremony by Tom
Scott, president of the 1946 graduates, whose class purchased the
robot sccrekeeper as a graduat'on
gift—such jrlfts having become almost traditional in the past few
years.
Varsity's broadcasting booth ln
the stadium an dthe stadium public address system are both gifts
from other graduating classes.
The new score clock hss all the
features of the Little Giant potato
peeler ("Even a child can operate
it!") and then some. The face of
the time-keeper portion of the apparatus 4s some two feet ln dlame-
rer, and Is straddled by two blocks
of lights which are capable of
getting all lit up at a second's
notice to indicate the score held by
each team.
TURNS SCARLET
Below the face of the time apparatus is a quartette of tiny red
lights which indicate the period
in progress at the given moment.
One interesting feature of the new
3a>A device is that the entire face of
evil  ...I the clock turns a brilliant scarlet
during the last minute of play in
each quarter. However this does
not necessarily indicate that the
home team Is taking a beating—the
clock isn't endowed with the partial
viewpoint of most fans.
Operation of the scoreboard Is
entirely electric. A set of buttons
at the scorekeper's table ls so
constructed to keep the fan informed of what is happening in
terms of melons and minutes—
almost before it happens, Sound
effects are included in the form
of a horn wh'ch announces times
out and ends of periods.
The entire mechanism—a postwar product of Medart in St. Louis
—arrived last Spring, but installation was postponed unt'l an appropriate time such as Friday's first
home event for the number one
