 Philpott
Calls For
NewLaw
• WORLD GOVERNMENT is the
only answer to everlasting
peace, according to Elmore Philpott, well known radio commentator. In an address given to the
Social Problems Club Friday he
emphasized that power politics
must give way if we are to have
a "World without end."
Philpott stated war was not necessarily the lasting lot of mankind.
He cited as an example the conflicts between England and Scotland which eventually terminated
In a successful union of the two
countries.
FLIMSY BASIS
"A flimsy basis for world understanding was formed at the San
Francisco Conference. However,
the advent of the atomic bomb
changed and wakened the military
significance of the meeting, as was
shown at the subsequent parley of
The Big Three' where more rivalry than understanding was in
evidence." he said.
He pointed out that German-
British rivalry was only a short
interlude compared to that between Russia and Britain, recalling
that as long ago as 1885 Rudyard
Kipling had advocated the building
of a fort at Vancouver as protection against the "Russian Bear, the
fear of which," Mr. Fnilpott said,
"has become an old British custom."

• PICTURED ABOVE and to the right are carpenters at

capacity of 60 which will help to relieve congestion in the
Caf. Tea, coffee, milk, soft drinks, soup, cake, doughnuts,
and sandwiches will be served. It will probably be open the
same hours as the Caf. Referring to the delay in opening,
Frank Underhill, Caf manager, said that lack of builders
and building materials delayed completion. "Lecture huts
come first." It will be opened as soon as facilities allow.
• STUDENTS TAKING the Social Work course on the campus held an organization meeting
last Wednesday under the chairmanship of Miss Marjorie Smith.
Officers were- elected as follows:
Eric Winch, president; Julie van
Gorder, vice-president; Stanley
Whitehead, escretary • treasurer;
Mary Chatwin and Dora Porter,
members at large.
As a student group they hope to
JNtise the standard of social work
of the students ln co-op-
AtaM Mater Society.
At the meeting they discussed
the possibility of getting stack permits from the library in order to
have access to those books dealing
with social work. "Another suggestion was that the organization
might form its own co-operative
library for the use of the class.
Having travelling expenses of
students in field work paid by th?
agency concerned was another vital point under discussion. However, no agreement can be reached
until the permission of the Faculty is obtained.
MARRIED VETS
RECEIVE BONUS
9   A NOTICE of importance to
veterans maintaining two establishments has, been received by
the Counselling Service.
"Department of Veterans' Affairs may pay to a discharged person pursuing a university course,
and who is a person in respect of
whom an allowance for dependents is being made, an additionhl
living allowance of Ave dollars per
week whilst such person is thereby living apart from his or her
dependent, and is, thereby, obliged
to incur extra living expenses bv "
reason of maintaining himself or
herself in the training centre in
addition to mantaining the establishment where his or her dependent resides."
This extra allowance was formerly paid only to veterans taking
vocational training, but has no,v
been broadened to include university students.
Immigration Talk Runs
Away With Forum
By ROSEMARY HODGINS
*   SOME SAY yes and some say no and some argue on
forever.   In this atmosphere, the Parliamentary Forum
round-table discussion closed only because of the end of
the Thursday noon-hour.
iorters See Remains
Of H.M.S.IImplacable
• EDITOR'S NOTE: For tho benefit of the other 30,000 left on the dock
Sunday, two indomitable UBYSSEY reporters gained access Wednesday to the British  carrier Implacable.   After surveying  the  shambles
left by Sunday's 20,000, they report here on what remained intact.
By LITTLE-GRAY
• WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON we were shown over the
Implacable. With the aid of our Ubyssey press cards, and
with a naval officer in tow, we got aboard the huge aircraft
carrier. Lieut. Commander R. O. Head, D.S.C., R.N., commander of flying, showed us around.
First we visited the hangari.
The large one normally holds 43
planes, Avengers and Seaflres, ths
navy version of the Spitfires. The
planes had been left in Sydney
but there were spare pans lashed
to the ceiling.
1600 Army cots had been set up
in the hangar for the British re-
pats and P.O.W.'s from Japan.
The smaller hangar, situated directly beneath the larger one, was
also full of cots and bunks. The
control tower of the hangar had
been converted into an information bureau for the trip, end flags
and banners were strung up over
the hangar walls.
PROBABLY LENA
After seeing the hangars we
took the huge elevator up to tha
flight deck. The commander told
us that it could be converted into
a projection screen tor movies. He
was noncommital on the type of
movies the sailors liked best.
We next visited the ward room,
which is very comfortable looking,
complete with a bar and
lounges. Then wo went down t.>
the engine rooms by a series of
ladders and steps. We saw tho
huge evjporating tanks and machinery. From the engine room
Wo went up again to tho deck and

The problem of an immigration
policy for Canada and three suggested solutions were offered to
the Forum audience as a trial run
of the executives's proposed symposiums or round-table discussions
to De held before downtown clubs,
schools and other organizations.
IMMIGRATION LAWS
Grant Livingston, in giving tho
background rnat:rial for discus-
Mon of the topic, cited the latesi
Immigration Laws. In 1930-31, im-
j.'.rati ;n was limited to those included  in  five  categories:
British and United States citizens with adequate means. The
father, mother and children over
18 of a Canadian citizen able to
support them. Agriculturalists
with  capital   to  start   and   run   a
farm and the finance of a Canadian citizen were listed.
Gordon eRed defended the status
quo of immigration by asserting
that since the end of the war wil
bring a decrease in the Dominion's economy, and flood of labor
on the employment market, Canada cannot accommodate increased
immigration and the competition
it would bring against her ex-
SsTvice  personnel.
CAST OFFS
In the face of rather obvious
disagreement, Reed said that immigrants on the whole were "cajt-
effs" of oth:r nations in that their
standards of living and literacy
were generally very low in comparison  with  Canadian standards.
23 Percent Cast
Ballots; Many
Spoiled Votes
• A GREAT disappointment to
the officials who handled last
Wednesday's election was the fact
that only 23 per cent of 3600 prospective voters cast their ballots.
Of 793 ballots cast Cal Whitehead, running for the office of
Sophomore representative, received 344 votes against his clos3st
rival Rosemary  Hodgins's 320.
The other four candidates in order of standing were: Ian Greenwood. Peter 'Graham, Bob Harwood,  and Roy Messum.
For the ofnee of Co-ordinator of
Social Activities, Jack Cunningham was victorious over his only
opponent,   Dave  Hausser.
Of the 793 votes polled, 98 ballots were spoiled. Election offi.
cials wish to point out that the
definition of a spoiled ballot if
the same this year as in former
years and is outlined in ^he Constitution  of the  AMS.

NERVES SHOT BY OVERCROWDING;
Students Organize Jokers Club;
PLAN TO RUN NEW MACHINE.
P.S.—WE CAN GO ALONG WITH A GAG
By JOHN GREENE
• "WHAT IN HELL is the Jokers Club?" If nobody has asked you that yet, be patient,
Somebody undoubtedly will. And if you thin k you know the answer you'd better check up
to make sure. You're probably out of date by this time.
Bu even if most students don't know what it is the Jokers Club is by far the fastest
growing of campus clubs. It is also the most u nusual. In fact it is unique.
If   you'ra   troubled
by a joker
during the next few weeks, you
can blame it on Dave Hayward, a
slightly wacky law student. He
started it. But he didn't know
what he was getting into.
He began to organize the club
two weeks ago as an organizaion
for men not in fraternities so that
they could take part in intramural
sports.
NOISE MAKER
Now, in the words of Alan Bees-
ley, Noise Joker, or club publicity
man, it is "a club for all nitwit3,
screwballs, and zanies. We are
lunatics at large."
All male students are eligible
to join provided they own a yoyo. Members claim the girls are
"mad as hell" because they can't
jet in.
New members are asked to bring
their own straight-jackets because
the club supply Is running out. A
knowledge of gibbet Ish Is considered essential.
Although the club was only
started two weeks ago and had its
first meeting last Monday it already has well over 150 members,
which makes it on.) of the largest
elubs on the campus,
The founder, Dave Hayward, Is
Ace Joker, or president. AU the
members are vice-presidents.
They discussed a constitution,
but dropped the idea when a
member suggested "Constitutions
are too limiting." There is a
charge of one dollar for fees, "not
that we need any money, but the
Money Joker, treasurer, plays
poker."
ENOUGH, ENOUGH!
The club slogan today is "Coma
and make an ace of yourself." By
tomorrow it will probably bfl
something different. They hav;
already used and discarded "Rats
to frats," "If there's a fuss, it's
us," "If there's a riot, we'll buy
it," and several others.
The club song, "Be a Joker,'
was played over the PA system
Wednesday noon. They call it the
hit of the waek, "because whenever we sing it, we get hit."
At least one professor has been
passed   as  "nuts  enough"   to   join
the club, but he has not been approached as yet.
A NEW MACHINE!
The club has extensive plans fit-
the     future.      After    establishing
themselves firmly here, with a
Jokers Jamboree three weeks
from now for Jokers and their women only, they plan to take over
campus activities.
Teams will be entered in all
intramural sports, and the club
plans to take all scholarships "because all geniuses are nuts." They
don't intend to do much at Homecoming since "We plart our own
Homecoming ceremony after
Christmas when we're all sent
home,"
The club wants a branch in
Essondale and one in the provincial
legislature. "Where else can you
find so many morons in one spot'"
Later they want to extend to all
North American universities, and
eventually take over the continent.
Their final objective ls Russia,
which they claim "needs something like us."
An orchestra to outdo Spike
Jones' is another of their intentions.
Meetings, or rather riots, are held
Mondays, at noon. The next
meeting will be Fee-J day, whopf
the Jokers will pay their fees, tt
will be held outside the Aggie
l.uilding.

•    REPRESENTATIVES from political parties, presenting
their last-minute appeals to the students and staff of the

IFC CRACKS
DOWN   ON
NAUGHTY FRAT
• •THE INTER-FRATERNITY
Council decided at a meeting
Thursday noon to lay a charge of
illegal rushing against an unspecified fraternity.
The offending fraternity was
found guilty of making illegal contact with rushees off the campus
and outside of official rushing
functions. It was felt by IFC
President Ken Broe that this had
been a common misdemeanor in
the past few years but had gone
unpunished because no other fraternity had called upon JFC to lay
a charge.
TO SET PENALTY
The IFC has decided to crack
down on this practice, and states
that the full penalty will be imposed. The nature of this penalty
will be decided by Broe, his vice-
president Jack Burgess, and faculty representative Dr. J. Allen
Harris.
registration, especially considering
that most of the increase comes
from older veterans, gives the
University of British Columbia
student body an active interest in
the polling.
Prior to this year political
speeches were not allowed on the
campus. However, an amendment
passed at a recent meeting of the
AMS now permits politicos to air
their views before mass meetings
of the students.
The two speakers appearing before the students on Monday to
present their parties' platforms,
are Walter F. Owen, representing
the Coalition Party, and Mrs.
Grace McGinn is, who represents
the CCF.
Tuesday's speakers will represent the Labor Progressive party
and Social Credit party.
FIRST CHANCE
Many of the veterans on the
campus, having recently arrived
from overseas, will have their first
opportunity to hear these speakers.
These speakers have gone to a
great deal of trouble to rearrange
their itineraries in order to come
out here. Time-tables for last-
minute speeches are made out
months in advance and hence are
not usually subject to change.
SCM Central Council
Scores Jap Deportation
•   CENTRAL COUNCIL of the Students' Christian Movement at Toronto University last week wired Ottawa urging delay in plans to return 10,300 Japanese resiednts of
Canada to Japan.
Officers of University of British Columbia branch of
the SCM could not be reached yesterday for a statement on
their plans, but members here said their branch had a committee to deal with the question of Japanese in Canada.

UBC COMMITTEE AT WORK
The committee was formed last
year by members interested in the
problem. This year it is functioning under the chairmanship of Don
Brown.
Word of the action of the central
council in Toronto had not been
received here before The Ubyssey
queried members.
Those members contacted were
not in a position to say whether
UBC branch of the SCM would
consider similar action.
Beauty Replies
To Sarcastic
Science Man
• WHEN THE Ubyssey started
, its Saturday feature "Beauty-
on-the-spot", it didn't expect to
develop a series of correspondence between its chosen beauties
and engineers.
But in effect that's wnat happened with respect to last week's
effort  by   Dianne  Reid.
First there came steaming Into
the Pub a letter from a sarcastic
Scienceman, alias Lycanthroi*;,
presenting his own advice about
the type of writing he desired
from the paper's chosen lady. It
appeared Thursday.
It didn't take very long for the
gal in question to come to her own
defense. Here's her side of the
question.
Dear Lycanthrope:
Feeling very much like Little
Red Riding Hood under your
biting criticism, I can only say,
"What., big. teeth., you., have,
grandma!" However, my humble contribution of Bacon to the
Ubyssey, unlike my predecessor's gift of eggs to her ailing
granny, was offered only to help
me out of a tight spot.
Now, you big, bad wolf,
you've put me on the spot
again, and I can see my only
hope ls for a stalwart forester
to happen along and give you
the axe.
Cordially,
DIANNA REID.

viewed with alarm plans of the
Canadian government to send to
Japan "within the next few weeks
10,300 Canadian residents of Japanese origin, because we believe
that this contradicts the principles
of justice and is a denial of the
democratic rights of minorities . . .
Therefore we respectfully urge the

TORONTO PLANS MEET
A meeting of representatives of

also a mass meeting of students.
Morley Clarke, University of
Toronto SCM president, declared:
"The issue is bigger than the present question alone. It may be the
Ukranians or some other minority
next."

Thursday.
The Veterans' Counselling Service, with Major J. McLean and

The Canadian Legion
• THE TEST of a group is loyalty of its
members and strength of organization.
When it possesses these qualifications there
is almost nothing it cannot accomplish unless it collides with the passive resistance of
public opinion.
The campus branch of the Canadian Legion has these attributes and at present
serves a valuable function on the campus in
giving returned men a mental meeting
ground for the problems involved in the
term "readjustment," the most sadly overworked noun in use today by well meaning
social workers,—and editorial writers.
Understanding of the individual ex-serviceman and non-serviceman on the campus
has on the whole been easy at'the University of British Columbia. A great majority of
returned men have diverted their energies
to activities on the campus and have become
members not only of a large and strong
group of legionnaires but also club members, fraternity members, and campus "joe-
boys." By doing this they have proved that
they want to become active students as soon
as possible.   Many students who have no
The Ninth Appeal
# "WINNING THE PEACE" is a three-
word phrase which has wealth of meaning in every syllable for people who pledged
themselves five years ago to remember that
the termination of the war would not mean
termination of wartime conditions.
The big job now is to pay service gratuities, hold down inflation, maintain an army
overseas, and bring the rest of the service
people home. For these reasons the ninth
victory loan has more reason for existence'
and success than any of the wartime editions.
The Victory Loan Committee has already
made an appeal to the university students
by holding a bond show and by erecting
a victory bond booth in the adminstration
building. The committee is doing everything to facilitate student purchase of bonds
except donate the money.
time for extra-curricular activities find that
thejr own prejudices can be dissolved over
a cup of coffee in the cafeteria.
Unfortunately, however, group prejudice
often groundless and unexplainable, can't be
laughed away. A cleavage between servicemen and non-servicemen could exist here if
ex-service personnel insist too strenuously
that they are "returned men" and "can get
things done as a group." They could assuredly get things done as a group by sheer
weight of numbers, and have deserved their
educational grants, but upon entering the
university have become students under the
Alma Mater Society. For this reason fellow
students are bound to resent it if returned
men take too many campus duties, which
have been capably handled by existing campus organizations, upon their own shoulders,
or request club room space, for their exclusive use.
Returned men can reenforce university
activity if they add their individual abilities,
ideals and opinons to dfferent campus or-
ganzations instead of following the trend of
diverting their activity inward.
There are many students who have little
spare cash at the present time, but the victory bond salesman on the campus will willingly make it clear to the others that for
"purely selfish reasons only they will be wise
to invest in a bond and boost the university
total.
As the Victory Loan Committee has
stated, "There are many attractive features
about the new loan. It will be the last one
for a year, a two for one issue which gives
investors twelve months instead of six over
which "to spread payments."
It's a matter of common sense and necessary patriotism to buy a victory bond at three
percent interest if you have the money on
hand. Just ask the bond salesman in the administration building.
PEEPERS   PAPERS
BY PEEPER
0 I HAD SOJOURNED scarcely an hour
on the campus before I realized that
there were considerably more scholars in
attendance at our institution this year than
heretofore.    Consequently I resolved that
1 would reintroduce myself and the club
whose deliberations I have the honour to
commemorate to the aggrandized student
body. I shall embark immediately upon an
estimate of myself.
In stature I suppose I would be accounted
small, for I stand somewhat short of five
feet. My head, according to the present
day dictates of the science of physiology, is
somewhat too large for my body, and its
broad coarse structure tends to add to the
disproportion.
Of course, Beethoven
In features I resemble the well known
portrait of Beethoven, (with which all students will be familiar), and my complexion
bears the imprint of a pox which I contracted in my eleventh year while on a journey
through Tibet with my father.
My lodgings are in the West End of the
city, convenient to the Art Gallery and the
theatre, and in close proximity to the harbour. Since my childhood in Devon I have
preserved a great love of the sea, and of
the craft which sail thereon, and I can truly
say that no ship has entered our port these
eleven years, but that I have either silently
welcomed it, or with a wave of my hand
bade it Godspeed.
My attire is not selected with a view to
attracting attention to my person. Indeed
I choose it for the opposite purpose, and
confine my habit to hues of black and grey,
but I pride myself that I achieve more dignity of line than some gross fellows effect
by variety and brilliance of colour.
When you wore a primrose
I must admit to one indiscretion— the
wearing of a primrose in my buttonhole.
In self-defense let me explain that I did not
initiate this practice. It was forced upon
me by my old concierge, who plucks a fresh
flower from his green-house each morning
and presents me with it after my morning
tea. I have often resolved to decline his
daily gift or to pluck it from my coat after
I have left his presence, but alas he is such a
kindly old gentleman that I have not been
able to bring myself to do either,, and have
appeared with my floral adornment each
day these past seven years.
I possess a number of qualities which fit
me eminently for my position as historian
of our Club. Chief of these is my renunciation of speech in favour of the written
word. I took this step at the age of seven
years, having concluded from the conversation of those around me that speech is only
indulged in at the expense of thought.
I take pen in hand to elucidate upon a
given matter only after I have reflected upon
the question for some hours, and while I am
sensible that my words lose energy as a result of this l'esprit d'escalier, I pride myself that they bear the imprint of reason.
Also a DECENT memory
I possess also a decent memory. I have
been known to recall to the phrase a full
hour's deliberation of the Club, and I can
state to the penny the arrears of each of its
members.
I am confining my studies this year to a
pursuit of the classics and anthropology,
having exhausted all courses offered in history, romance languages and philosophy. I
had the honour to have a paper read this
summer at the l'Alliance Francais, while my
spirited defence of the classics resulted in
the immediate cessation of publication of the
Laval University publication "Pourquoi
1'Education?". At present I am engaged in
writing an essay entitled "Indiscretions in
Shakespeare."
I shall proceed next week to a discussion
of the Club, which meets regularly in the
Alcove at Underbill's.

• MOST OF this week's comment is centered around the
Art Gallery which in default of a
Fine Aits Department here at th*
university is doing its humanly
fallible best to act as a focal point
for local activity in the field of the
Fine Arts. It recently celebrated
its 14th year in this service and
sometime on August 3rd of this
year, its millionth visitor passed
through the entrance turnstile.
The present exhibition at the
Gallery is the 14th ''B.C. Artists'
Exhibition" which closes this Sunday evening, October 21st. It is
a non-jury show, and unless you
have been down to see it, you possibly don't realize what that
means. One thing it means is
that there are 427 entries, since
everyone who desires has the right
• THOUGH PRECISION In the
arts is not only possible but
very necessary for expression of
any stature, since even distortion
must have the stamp of the unique
personal vision to be valid, yet in
evaluation, this precision of judgment can only establish leveU.
That is, by setting certain technical standards to rule out incompetence, a sort of "below-whlch-
no" level, and above this, judging
good or bad art on the use made
of  that  technical  equipment.    I
• HAVING ADVANCED this
sort of credo, these comments
should be understood in this sense.
Many artists who have been regular exhibitors in all the B.C. shows
have submitted (to my way of
thinking), if not the same canvases
at least the same painting. I've
tried to choose for you people
who have an actively personal but
developing style. In the Graphic
Arts section are two things by
Molly Lamb, "Baker's Shop" and
"Street Scene , Toronto," which
are characteristically her own and
yet not quite like anything of hers
shown here before. In this room
also there are some marvellously
drawn horses in Fred Amess'

real line-drawing by J. A. C.
Dickie, "Below the Chateau," and
two closely patterned "Compositions: India, Nos. 1 & 2." by Pte

us the Trapp Singers who consist of the Baroness Maria Augusta
von Trapp and her seven daughters, directed by the family priest
Father Franz Wasner. The press
release I saw became quite throaty
about the authentic dresses they
will wear, but I think a more justifiable comment would stress the
authentic old church and gay folk
music they will make for you at
the Lyric Theatre, October 25.
Also on the 25th you may remember, the lovely poetic fiction
that we control actual government
to exhibit and no inhibiting jury
stunts this sometimes dubifusly
laudable desire. It is, as Mr.
Lawren Harris, chairman of the
exhibition committee says, a "free
for all."
Which means you are even more
than usual on your 'own viewing the products of all this aesthetic activity. Because, perhaps
fortunately, there has never been
a divinely-right jury which would
make mathematically precise estimates of all entries, so that all
you'd have to do would be to go
around clutching your catalogue
in your hot little hand and mark
T for true art and F for false art
and then check with the master
copy to see how good your score,
and your taste, was.

• NO STRANGER TO UBC is CBR maestro John Avison. It's not so
long ago that he was training with the COTC preparatory to going
on active service. One of his first pleasant tasks after receiving his discharge waa playing at Summer Session concerts. "I think those student
audiences are really the best I've ever played for," says John. "They
were the keenest and most attractive."
Mr. Avison is maintaining his association with UBC by registering this
fall for Extension Deft, course in. botany, which strangely enough happens to be his hobby.

story from there:
"John's fan is certainly no ordinary one.

"Ah, madam," he said, "you are
going to the performance, no?"
Muttering something conventional, our lady waited until the

Thunderbird Gridmen Start On Tour Monday
In First Hardy Cup Football Quest Since 1939
By DON McLEAN
•   WHEN THE THUNDERBIRDS of British Columbia tangle with the Golden Bears of
Alberta in Edmonton next Wednesday, Greg Kabat, B.C. mentor will pin most of his
hopes of returning the Hardy Cup to the UBC trophy cabinet on an unbalanced line formation and the broad shoulders of four of his charges.
Instead of the usual forward wall consisting of a centre, two guards, two tackles and a
pair of ends, Kabat has switched the 'Bird line around so that he has two tackles, a running guard and an end on the right side and a tackle and end on the left.

feature rugger tussle at Brockton
Oval today. On the same card
Rowing Club ^tangles with Ex-
Brittannia in a cellar struggle.
Another important struggle will
be staged between UBC and Varsity vets at Varsily Stadium.
Both Varsity and Meraloma3
have looked very good thus far
and the winner of this crucial
game might turn out to be the 1945
Miller Cup champion, although
UBC cannot be counted out of the
race at this stage, even after their
humiliating loss at the hands of
Varsity a week ago.
Coach Doswell's charges are in
great shape and are confident of
victory. There is only one change
in the lineup which whipped UBC
last week, Msssie White replacing
Hec Rossetti at left wing.

UBC are much stronger this
week; with the re*«ppearance of
Big Ben Mitten, plunging centre

Washington State
Hoopmen Feature
All American Ace
• PULLMAN, WASH.-(BUP)-
Coach Jack Friel says Washington State College's prospects
for the 1945-46 basketball season
are bright, with one All-American
player already reporting and a
chance that another prospective
All-American may soon turn out.
Friel, who is starting his 18th
season as Cougar basketball coach,
has started nightly workouts. Leading the 30 men to report so far is
All-American Vince Hanson, six-
foot eight-Inch center from Tacoma. Hanson was leading collegiate scorer in the country last
season, collecting 592 points in 37
games.
MAY GET BISHOP
Friel nays Gale Bishop, who
racked up 1149 points In 45 games
for the Fort Lewis Warriors, may
be out of the army and ready to
go for the Cougars this season.
Among new men who are likely
prospects for the Cougar squad are
guard Jack Roffler, transfer from
Eastern Washington College of
Education; Gene Sivertson of Tacoma, transfer from Western Washington College where he led the
Vikings in scoring the last two
seasons, and Bob Elliot, Colfax war
veteran who was named All-Stale
with the Colfax High Club in 1944.
Veterans from last year include
Ray Johnson, Tacoma; Adrian
Jorissen, Lynden; Darroll Waller,
Spokane; and Bill Kellinger, Spokane.
Kabat has placed the responsibility of providing the punch to the
Thunderbird attack are Herb Capozzi and Dave Duncan, who will
team up on the heavy side of the
forward wall, Fred Joplin and
/ Phil  Guman.
It will be up to Capozzi and
Duncan to open the holes in the
Bear line to let Joplin through to
clear a path for Phil Guman,
broad-shouldered fullback who
will be doing most of the line-
plunging.
FOUR HORSEMEN
In placing the bulk of the responsibility for the success of the
'Bird offense on these four men,
Kabat has made full use of the
tremendous power and experience
he has on hand.
Capozzi is the heaviest of the
quartet, tipping the scales at 220
pounds. He played for six years
a't Vancouver College, three of
them unded the tutelage of Kabat,
and was good enough to receive,
an offer of a scholarship at St.
Mary's College.
* Duncan Is a 29-yeei-old veteran,
who formerly playtfd /or Toronto
Balmy Beach, in the Ontario Rugby Football Union, and McMaster
College. He weight 200 and is an
ideal partner for the hard-driving
Capozzi.
Joplin, up until a couple ef, days
ago, a Flight Lieutenant In the
Air Force, is another veteran with
loads of experience. He is 26 and
already wears two big blocks for
Canadian Football, one of them
while starring with the last UBC
Hardy Cup winners in 1939. Al.
though he only stands five feet
eight inches, Joplin weighs 195
pounds ond is the ace blocker in
the Thunderbird backfield.
PHIL WILL PLUNGE
The last of the Big Four, Phil
Guman, and the man who carries
the ball most of the time, weighs
in at 190 and probably has the
widest shoulders on tho campus.
He starred for the Kitsilano high
school team that steam-rollered it,:
way over all competition in 1941.
Guman also played n season for
Varsity but has since spent three
years in the Air Force.
Another backfielder who will do
his share of ball carrying Is Rex
Wilson, the smallest man on the
team and the speediest. Wilson
specializes in broken-field running
and if the 'Bird blockers can
shake him loosa he should roll up
a lot of yardage.
Filling the halfback position is
Hary Mark, former Toronto Indian
and Regina Rough Rider star.
And rounding out the very potent
backfield Is Dmitri Goulobef, fiery
flanker, who formerly lined up
with Kitsilano.
MAC AT CENTRE
For the centre post Kabat has
given the nod to Don Macintosh,
but will hold Alec McKerricker,
former Calgary Argos' ace, in
readiness. Gordie Genge will
handle the running guard spot and
huge Natt Kalensky holds down
the left tackle position.
To round out the forward wall,
Kabat has Bert Horwood, 27-year-
old vet, who played with the
Thunderbirds in 1937, and Cliff
Wyatt, who also doubles as team
manager.
This gives the 'Birds an average
of  slightly  over  200  pounds  p?r
man along the front wall and 180
in    the ' baekfleld—and  a  lot  of
. power.
Forestry Students
Hold Meeting

common   lament  heard   from  ex-
loggers and bushmen at UBC.

ROAD RACE
POSTPONED
UNTIL 31st
• BOB OSBORNE announced
Friday that the Intramural
Cross Country run, feature track
event of the year at UBC, hat
been postponed until Wednesday,
October 31.
Osborne said that the main reason for the postponement was the
fact that the Canadian football
team will be travelling next week
and there are several road racers
an that crew.
Also, it was announced that
Johnny Owen, Stadium manager,
will be travelling with the" Thunderbird gridders In the capacity of
trainer.
• SOMETHING NEW was added
in the world of sport at UBC
last year when for the first timo
in the history of the university,
an Inter B team was entered in
the local  hoopla circles.
It was Pete McGeer who was
interested enough at that time to
help the boys out and after putting them through a rather successful season, has brought a good
number of them to the Inter A
crib with him this year.
The idea of having an Inter B
team was a popular one and the
McGeer family is still interested
in bringing out the best in those
who wan; to play in the biggest
little league in town.
This league has gained more
popularity in the last two years
than the Seniors have had. It all
adds up to the fact that folks like
to see the younger fellows break
into stardom.
ANOTHER McGEER
Taking his first crack at coaching, Pat, the younger edition of
the McGeers, feels that his boys
have enough ball sense already tc
make the year an easy one for
him. Pat was one of the ace freshmen on the 'Bird machine last
year and he got a goodly share of
points with his sharp left flipper.
The mam thing that worries the
ever-happy little coach is the terrific number of players that are
turning out—all seven of them!
As guards the team will feature
Bob Boyes and Les Matthews. Bob
hales from Port Albernl and according to his coach is "the best
guard playing for any of Varsity's
teams." Keep your eyes oa that
boy. lett Matthews, a terrific lit
tle ball handler, played with McGavins Inter  B's last season.
STACY'S IN THERE
Pat will be working on Paul
Plant, who, like himself is another
left handed forward. Paul played
last year with Stacy's Inter B.
Also from the Stacy entry of
last year comes 'Long John For-
sythe' who will fill the pivot spot
for the Varsity squad. Johnny
should be due for big things at
UBC.
Tooke's also have a representative on the Varsity squad. Gordy
Selman is his name and Gordy
has the happy knack of being able
to fill and position on the team.
His height helps him on defense
and rebounds.
QUITE A TEAM
Jack Costigan has never had any
team experience, nor has Ron
Bray, but both lads learned something about the game at high
school and should prove valuable
before the season progresses very
far.
So there they are—the second
Inter B team from UBC. As Pat
puts lt, "These guys are headed
for a championship—you can print
that!"
We did Pat.   It's up to you now.

4 Years
of Good Government
The Coalition ^Government of British Columbia was
formed in 1941'. Throughout four difficult years it has
not only co-operated to the utmost limit with thc
national war effort, but it has maintained high
standards of provincial administration and laid the
foundations for a better tomorrow.
At the forthcoming election, the Coalition Government
will appeal to the people for a mandate to carry on.
It will seek support on the basis of its record and offer
a continuation of its programme of sound progressive
administration.
British Columbia cannot afford to embark upon any
new form of government under untried leadership.
On Thursday, October 25th, Election Day
