 Busy Week Planned for Newcomers
•   A HIGHLY concentrated program of activities
is planned for the next week
by the AMS.
Things get under way at 12:30
today with a Frosh Pep Moet in
the Auditorium, sponsored by the
Mamooks.
Music will be provided by Jack
Cohen's orchestra, a solid aggregation, while Yvetie Morris and a
group of freshette cheerleaders will
take over the Intermissions to
teach frosh Varsity songs and yells.
All frosh are asked to bring along
their  copies of  the Tilllcum,  in
which they will find  the  songs
printed.
FREE DANCE
Jack Cohen will provide the
music again in the afternoon when
a WUS tea dance will take place
in the Brock main lounge. Admission is strictly free.
Thursday will be a big day for
the frosh. Freshettes gather at the
big sister supper in the Auditorium
from 4:30 to 5:30, and then in the
Caf from 5:30 to 7:00. Freshmen
assemble at the Oddfellows Hall
at 7th and Main come 9»p.m. At
both these functions frosh who
have disobeyed the rules for freshman week will meet their fate.
The SCM takes over on Saturday
with their mixer in the Brock from
8:30 to 12:00 p.m. On Sunday there
will be a church service especially
for frosh at Christ Church Cathedral. Also on Sunday is a Phart-
eres fireside tea to be held in the
afternoon.
Freshmen Anally get their chance
to strike back at the sophomores
at 12:30 on Monday when the
Frosh-Soph basketball is held in
the Gym-. Monday also marks the
start of club week when various
campus organizations hold a drive
for new members.
Big night for the frosh comes
Tuesday, with the Frosh reception,
where they officially become undergraduates of UBC after being
introduced to the President. This
function begins at 8:30 in the Auditorium, and moves to the Brock
at 9:45.
Admission is free to all freshmen
who wear their regalia. All upperclassmen or improperly dressed
frosh must pay one dollar admission.
Vol. XXVII VANCOUVER, B.C., TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 19,1944 No. 1
Busy UBC Co-eds Expand
War Work Curriculum
•   HUMMING sewing machines, clacking knitting needles,
and the soijnd of marching feet will swing University of
British Columfia co-eds into their third year of voluntary
war work.      \
Wartime clothiti and wartime
foods- are new coifsts which will
enable hard-workhfr coeds to keep
in pace with thsf khaki, navy
and air-force blue |lad brothers.
These new coursis, which are
being sponsored by the Home Economics department will discuss
wardrobe planning and diet balancing under  wartime rationing.
Wartime fabrics |lttod to different dying treatments will be
concentrated on in the clothing
course. Miss Stella Beil and Miss
Dorothy Lefebvre of the Home Economics department will instruct.
Playground and dsy nursery supervision may be offered by coeds with pre-requisite Psychology
courses.
Map reading and motor mechanics have been dropped from the
war work curriculum.
Totem Returns
After Two Vear
Leave Of Absence
• THE TOTEM, UBC's All-American yearbook will reappear
on the campus this SJsslon after
an absence of two yeats,
When the last Toten| was published in 1942 it was decided that,
owing to lack of help and wartime shortages, publication of the
book would be discontinued until
after the war.
This year's book wil| actually
be larger than any previous Totem, in order to keep pace with
the increasing size of our university.
Cafe Aot Hurt
By Rationing
• RATIONING will notoriously  curtail  service at th« caf
this year, according to manager
Frank  Underhill.
Since rations allowed the caf are
on the basis of meals servtd, Mr,
Underhill is not sure how the recent cut in the butter ration will
work out, but he feels confident
that if students extend the degree
of cooperation which they have in
the past, there will be no difficulty.
"My only complaint," stated Mr.
Underhill, "is that they will not
allow me to put rubber walls on
the caf, and consequently I may
have trouble accommodatlnj the
Increased number of student! this
year."
Rules Set
for frosh
Initiation
• A HORRIBLE fate is in
store  for  innocent   (?)
freshmen and freshettes who
are so imprudent as to be
seen on the UBC campus
this week.
To begin with, nine fiendish
ghouls inhabiting the Alma Mater
Society office have devised the
following set of rules and regulations which must be obeyed by
all frosh under pain of certain
dire penalties.
These rules are as follows:
1. Freshettes are not to wear
any lipstick, rouge, powder, nail
polish, or any form of make-up
whatsoever.
2. Freshmen must wear trousers rolled up to a height of at
least 11 inches above thc ankle.
3. All frosh must wear their
placards, listing name, address,
and phone number.
4. All    freshettes    must    wear
their green goggles at all times.
DOFF HATS
5. Freshmen and freshettes
must not be seen together on the
campus.
6. All freshmen must doff their
hats to upperclassmen.
7. All   frosh   must   relinquish
their seats in the library or the
caf to upperclassmen.
PUNISHMENT
In order to make sure that these
rules are scrupulously observed,
a small army of specially appointed upperclassmen whose names
will be unknown even to their
compatriots, will police the campus and take the names of all offenders.
Meanwhile several of the most
active and sadistic minds on the
campus are at work devising unspeakable punishments which will
be meted out to offenders at the
big sister—little sister supper an.l
at the frosh smoker.
Brock Furniture
May Face Attack
• BROCK HALL furniture may
receive a cleaning this year.
Student Council is of the opinion that the chairs and chester-
fields need a good scrubbing so
that they will not depreciate too
rapidly.
Frosh Stagger To 8:10's
• THE 8:10 lecture, that destroyer of spirit, the bugbear
of freshman existence, is entering
its sophomore ycar on this canpuj.
For tho second consecutive term,
it will force the rosy cheeked
freshmen to be rudely awakened
from their innocent dreams of the
"World Outside," hurled from
their beds, and stampeded into a
bulging bus. to be taken away to '
be taught wisdom and to imbibe
knowledge.
Yet it is the frosh themselves
who have forced this upon themselves by coming out in such large
numbers that the transportation
problem has become acute, and
the English department has, as
they did. last term, set the lecture
times of the Eng. 1 lectures twenty minutes ahead.   Result:  8:10's.
"Great Experiment"
Aft EDITORIAL
This year the Publications Board takes the first steps
toward establishment of a daily newspaper for the University
of British Columbia.
Beginning today, The Ubyssey will be published three
days a week, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
The Ubyssey is 28-years-old this month, and is growing
in the same fast stride as UBC. Started as a monthly in 1916,
the paper became a bi-weekly 14 years later. Today, another
14 years from that date, The Ubyssey is a "tri-weekly".
The Ubyssey also becomes a member of the British
United Press Service, which will bring up to the minute
news of the world to varsity students. This service will be
in addition to the Canadian University Press, featuring news
of other Canadian Universities.
Campus news coverage will be increased and made more
speedy and reliable if a staff of well-trained reporters can
be built up.
All this is in the nature of a "Great Experiment", which
the present editorial staff believes will be a success. We
hope that students will find the change in The Ubyssey
satisfactory.
In addition, the Publications Board will publish a full-
size Totem this year. For the past two years, we have conserved paper with the graduation issues, a measure undertaken voluntarily by the students although the UBC Publications Board holds a paper certificate of exemption which
enables it to purchase any amount of paper on the market.
It is not known at present what the Totem will cost for
each student, but it will be a figure lower than in past years.
It is hoped that students will give generous support to the
new Totem, and in anticipation of this, arrangements have
been made to print 2600 copies if necessary.
The Publications Board and Student Council embark
upon this ambitious course for 1944-45 in the hope that it
will continue successfully next year and become a model
for future advances in the growth of UBC.
Open House Welcomes Frosh
Life Begins at '44 In Pub;
Reporters Wanted Now
• AN organizational meeting of
all those interested In writing
for the Publications Board will be
held at an Open House today from
12:30 on, in thc Publications office,
North Basement of the Brock.
• STAID NOTICES like the one
above  never impart  any gay
feeling to readers, They tell only
of one fact—but read on—a story
goes with this one.
Anyone who thinks he can write,
wants to write, or can write—or
even can't write and wishes to
have another shot at it—Is quite
welcome to come in and see us.
Writing stories is naturally our
main business, but as said before,
a  story goes with it.
The story revolves around free
cokes twice a week (hxclusive to
the Ubyssey), radio music to
soothe shattered nerves and shatter soothed nerves, and characters.
Characters are known to one
and all as editors and they impart
a delicious air of mystery to the
Pub every Monday, Wednesday
and Friday. If you can tell the
difference between a streamer and
an overline withip three months
you will stand a good chance of
being shoved on the first rung of
the ladder that leads to success
and being a character.
Like every other organization,
the Pub suffers from labor shortage and many turnovers each
year. For this reason, and shady
others, there are several positions
wide open for any promising
young man or woman. These positions bring with them more fun
and experience and the right to
pinch an extra coke twice a week.
For further particulars scurry
down to the Pub any time today
and enlist in this remarkable news
service. Read the notice again
and remember that a story goes
with it. A story that can't be put
in words but fairly sparkles with
the good things of life. Life begins at '44—in the Pub.
FORESTRY OPTIONS
• OPTIONS in forestry are open
to students in Gecond, Third and
Fourth years of the B.Com. course
who wish to qualify for the the

Swell Registration
To Record Level
•   THE SLXTH war session of the University of British
Columbia began Monday with one of the largest registrations in the University's history.
Complete   figures  are  not   yet '
available, but it is expected that
the number of students on the
campus this fall will exceed last
year's high of more than 2700.
Largest class of all will be the
Freshmen, who have packed campus walks and halls the last four
days as they wandered about In
foreign surroundings.
REGULATIONS
No new Selective Service regulations have been reported as yet,
but the record of every male student was being carefully scrutinized by officials of the registrar's
office, as the prospective students
Service Parades
Begin Sept. 30
• ALL THREE university military services will hold their
first parade on Saturday, September 30, There will be little change
in the program for training on the
campus this year.
The schedule will call for six
hours of training per week in all
three services. The UNTD (University Naval Training Detachment) will take the full six hours
in training ana will discontinue
the Physcal Training period. The
COTC will continue the period,
but the UAS (University Air
Service—formerly the UATC) will
again give their full six hours to
courses.
ADVANCED TRAINING
The UNTD will give advanced
training to all old hands and basic
training to the new. Training will
be given both on the campus and
at HMCS Discovery as before.
All old hands of the UNTD must
make medical appointments in the
Ship's Office immediately. All
medicals will be given at H.M.C.S.
Discovery.
COTC training will, in all probability, see little change. Lt.-Col.
G. M. Shrum, commanding officer
of the unit, is now in the East
conferring with military authorities, Major C. W. Topping commands in his absence.
The UAS will continue with the
two year course started last year,
which gives students qualifications
equal to eight weeks in the Air
Force, and will start another class
for newcomers.
signed up.
Every man will have to be fh the
top half of his class at Christmas
and April, unless he is in the preferred classes. ,
All men students returning to the
university must have deferments
from Selective Service.
The air of uncertainty which
characterized last year's first days
is gone this September because the
men know definitely where they
stand.
Tho three military services on
the campus will begin parades this
week with a few changes, but remaining basically the same.
The women have had several
changes added to their war work
program, the compulsory scheme
began two years ago on the advice
of co-eds themselves.
FULL JPROGRAM
Student Council officials got
started on their plans for student
activities early last week, and are
planning a full program for 1944-45.
Varsity as a whole moved into
its thirtieth session with an air
of expectancy and hope, under the
guidance of its new president, Dr.
Norman A. M. MacKenzie.
Polite Sophs
Dunk freshies
So Gracefully
• A TONE of genteel quietness
prevailed at the traditional
freshmen dunking ceremony which
took place peacefully on the campus Monday noon.
Considerate upperclassmen, wary
of the easily hurt feelings of tender Frosh, thoughtfully removed
the shoes and stockings of ffNh>
men candidates selected to wade
through the lily pool in front of
the library.
Emily Post would have approved
heartiliy of the proceedings until a
confused freshman, apparently
blind to tradition, innocently
pushed a Scienceman into the
pond. Groups of Sciencemen gathered around were slightly upset
by this faux pas but were persuaded by an eloquent, Frosh spokesman to depart.
The crowd dispersed peacefully.

THE   UBYSSEY
Tuesday, September 19, 1944
From The Editor's Pen
« « «
The Never Ending Task
The 1944-45 editorial staff of The
Ubyssey takes pleasure in welcoming to the
campus on behalf of the students, the third
president of the University of British Columbia, Dr. Norman A. M. MacKenzie.
In our brief history, we have known
only two other presidents. Dr. Leonard S.
Klinck, the president the majority of us
knew best, we were sorry to see go because
it was he who made the Fairview post-high
school into a University.
In September, 1944, we join with President MacKenzie in the never-ending task of
building UBC. He is a man well-equipped
to guide us.
Although not all of us will become acquainted with the new president during
these first few months, it is our hope that
we will all get to know him before this
session ends.
Being interested in Canadian youth
movements, he is a man who will listen to
the problems, head-aches and suggestions of
students'and who will endeavor to see them
to a satisfactory conclusion.
Dr. MacKenzie's reputation has preceded him to this campus and so we feel
confident of the future success of this
University.
University of New Brunswick informants tell us that he has always held the
interests of the University and the student
highest in his regard. We feel secure in the
knowledge of that fact.
There's a big job before us. One task
is the establishment of other faculties here.
Dr. Mackenzie has already held talks with
Premier Hart on this subject.
We need a medicine faculty, law and
other sciences. We need dormitories, more
lecture space and a general enlargement of
other existing facilities.
We need to impress upon the people
of this province the necessity of building
a great university for British Columbia, not
for the individual student's welfare, but for
the welfare of the citizens of B.C.
Too long have the people of this
province looked upon their university as
an expensive toy of rich men's sons while
they, the tax payers, paid more to harbor
the dead souls of the insane than they did
to mould the spirit of British Columbia's
youth.
This education of the public is going
on now, but slowly. More than 8,000 graduates have left UBC halls and entered into
the life of the province. Their opinions will
have effect, but it is up to the students
attending the University now to demonstrate
forcefully the value of UBC.
Many is the time that Ubyssey editors
have pounded away on this theme, but
never has a theme needed more emphasis,
especially as the University embarks upon
a new era, an era of growth, of spreading
the light of higher education to all who
desire it; an era in which the University of
British Columbia will take its place among
the leading educational instutions of the
world.
The Old "It"
You dreamy-eyed little Freshettes and
moon-faced lanky Freshmen who have by
this time forced your eyes up to this corner
of The Ubyssey, let us be among the first
to pour scorn on your poor selves.
You might as well get used to It, for
this is always the fate of the uninitiated.
These first few weeks especially, It will
chase you all over the campus, buzz around
your ears in the Caf and hit you in the face
at lectures.
It is inevitable, and not until you pass
through the undergraduate arch at die Frosh
Reception will It leave you alone for a
moment.
Some Ubyssey editors have taken on
the role of "Great White Father to the
Freshmen" and written a few words of advice to newcomers. Others have laughed
sarcastically at the great white fathers and
their advisory editorials. This year we laugh
at both.
We do not know of any advice which
will ensure a Freshman against becoming a
maladjusted senior in three short years, and
what advice we do have tucked away in
our venerable typewriters we shall keep to
ourselves because it's much more fun to
learn yourself.
You will find it a fantastic experience.
You will be a different person when you
"come out", and ten-to-one you will never
regret it.
It is your own way you have to make,
and no one here is going to bother himself
very much if you do not make the grade.
If you receive a Christmas present from Mr.
Manson, we do not extend our sympathies.
Glue your still crystal-clear eyes to that
literally-translated motto of UBC. "Tuum
Est". It means that "It is up to you", and
surprisingly enough, it is up to you.
Now we've forgotten ourselves and
given out some advice. Shame on us, and
good luck to you.
ill
in all seriousness
By Denis Blunden
•   ABOUT TEN YEARS ago someone got
tired of writing nasty things about
freshmen in the first issue and wrote about
normal topics just to be different. I don't
just want to be different and revert back
to writing nasty things about freshmen but
this will be my only chance to say what I
wish to say. It is too early in the year for
disgusted readers to write letters to the
editor so I am safe for the present.
Freshettes are one of the wonders of the
world. They make life pleasant to look at
by wearing sweaters and short skirts and
throwing their torsos about the campus with
gay abandon and relentless purpose.
Some women have arrived at university
and settled down to work, taken up social
service, and are very happy fixing the husband trouble of other wives.
Others, the majority, have been smart.
The best record is of a blonde creature who
met a man the first day of registration, got
married, and saved her family four years of
fees.
EXCEPTIONAL CASE
Of course, this case was exceptional.
The girl just had luck and what it takes.
Most women have to labor through four
years of study, three years of "friendly"
sorority meetings, and uncounted cocktail
parties before some tired fraternity brother
gives up hope of living peacefully and takes
someone for a wife.
At the end of every year students drop
by the wayside and get married. Some just
can't wait intill the end of the term to drop
by the wayside. The wayside is stuffy and
overcrowded these days as a result of this.
DON'T WORRY GIRLS
It used to be fairly pleasant in the
wayside. Nice companionship, good food,
first run pictures. Now the place is clogged
with people who don't appreciate life—
people who have just given up and instead
of going to the dogs have gone for dinner
in the wayside and stayed for six months.
But the freshettes need not worry too
much about leaving university with nothing
but a degree. Some nice young man is
bound to choke on Mr. Underbill's output
from the "grill" and fall, gasping, into waiting arms. From then on it is only a matter
of time. What the freshettes really learn
at university is remarkable—truly remarkable. It outdistances learning at a private
girl's school by miles.
Another lovely topic for the advice-
givers is clubs. Clubs in university are not
to be associated with havens after the night
before, uncomfortable chairs, and scotch-
and-sodas. On university property and time
none of this goes on. What happens after
closing time is not for publication.
JOIN AND SEE THE WORLD
Gordon Bertram of the SPC and also
LSE boss, loves to gather his brood under a
protective wing and tell you to join a club.
The LSE is divided into major and minor
clubs, the major bossing the minor and the
minor picking arguments with the treasurer,
and the treasurer picking arguments with
the major. It's a vicious circle. But freshmen
always join clubs. So I must give them
some advice on the subject.      * *
The Players Club, and allied English
accents! Here is a fine chance for an able-
bodied student with a trace of any accent,
preferably British.
Musical Society: Wide knowledge of
Gilbert and Sullivan. Passion—if for music
so much the better. Other requirements:
Love of Sinatra and thate of certain reviewers.
COME DOWN AND SEE US
Social Problems Club: Fine chance for
those with thorough grounding in public
affairs, Socialism, and affiliation with any
political party as long as it is the Labor
Progressive.
No requirements are needed for the
Publications Board. We take you as you
come, and leave you as you go.
But if you like a literary page you can
go right now, thank you.

By JOHN GREEN
•LAST SPRING, like many an
unfortunate student, I renewed my acquaintance with the NSS,
selective service to you.
After a gruelling half hour spent
in a shipyard employment office
I wandered over to 808 Hastings.
As I entered the door, after removing my hat with all due reverence,
a truly inspiring sight met my
eyes.
Long lines of happy students
leaned blissfully on miles of railings and counters which meandered about the room. Hundreds of
bright, Intelligent-looking men
and women sat in front of big
desks, gossiping amicably with
their neighbors, or playing quiet
games of solitaire.
Occasionally one of these Individuals, whom I surmised must
be employed in the place, would
pause long enough to gaze interestedly at the waiting throngs of
students, wondering, perhaps, just
why they were there, and what
their presence might portend.
HOW'S YOUR PERMIT?
Somewhat sobered by the business-like atmosphere of the place
I joined one of the waiting lines,
only to be accosted immediately
by a large gentleman in a blue
uniform who seemed to be the
only person in the place gifted
with the ability to move.
"Where," he growled threateningly, "is your permit?"
"Permit?" I stammered, completely taken aback, "but I just
got here. What would I be doing
here if I had a permit? Besides,
it's used for this month."
HOLD THAT LINE
"Look, chum," he explained condescendingly, if you want to stand
in this line here you got to have a
permit. To get that permit you
got to stand in that line over
there. But before you can stand
in that line yoU got to - - - -."
"Oh why," he moaned hopelessly, "do I have to waste my time
on you idiots?"
"You start," he continued, "in
the second line from the right In
the North East corner of the office. Just go and stand over there
until someone looks after you."
He turned and walked sedately
away, while I retreated in disorder
to the place  indicated.
IN THE FRONT LINE
I soon struck up an acquaintance
with the young man in front of
me. He had been there for three
days, but his time had not been
wasted as he had advanced some
eight inches towards his ultimate
goal, the man who issued the permits which allowed you to go and
stand in the line second from the
left.
Today, however, the line was
not moving at all. It seemed that
the man at the end had had a
wild night the night before, and
was now sleeping it off with his
feet on his desk, and an icepack

THUNDERBIRDS' FUTURE LOOKS BRIGHT
Nine Returning
From Last Year
Bakken ...
Stilwell
By LUKE MOYLS
•   IT LOOKS LIKE BASKETBALL might have another
great season at Varsity this year.   At least, prospects
are bright for the Thunderbirds, UBC's Senior A basketball
squad. With plenty of first-class hoop material on hand this
fall, coach Maury Van Vliet should have little trouble shaping up a title-threat team.
From all reports, there will be      —^—__^___________
nine, and possibly 10, of last year's
outfit returning to the maple
courts for the Blue and Gold.
These men are Art Stilwell, Sandy
Robertson, Gordy Sykes, Ole Bakken, Ron Weber, Art Johnson,
Bruce Yorke, Bud McLeod and
Pete McGeer, with Harry Franklin on the "maybe" list.
TWO TO THE NAVY
Only two are missing: Jim Scott,
who played with the 'Birds! when
they won their. third dominion
championship in the spring of
1941, and Don Woodhouse, a fresh*
man who was with the Victoria
Dominoes when they took the
Canadian title a year later, and
who proved capable of competing
with the best centre men.
Jim Is now a sub-lieutenant ln
the navy, joining up as soon as he
graduated last spring, and Don
donned the navy blue also Just a
few weeks ago.
Although there are almost enough players returning to fill out
a complete roster, there are five
more hoopstars making their first
appearance on the Campus this
week. All five of these freshmen
took part in last season's Intermediate A final between Arrows
and Vancouver College.
Reg Clarkson and Eddie Ryan,
the two standouts of College's
"Fightln* Irish," will vie with Arrows' Fred Bossons, Gerry Stevenson and Pat McGeer (brother
of Pete McGeer) in trying out
for the Thunderbirds.
HOW ABOUT A LEAGUE
So you can see that the Varsity
basketball club should be fairly
well off for players this season,
and a good team is to be expected.
However, the question of finding
a league for them to play in now
arises.
The senior league situation looks
pretty grim these days after the
decrepit state It was left in at the
close of last season. The league
fared very poorly on the Vancouver-Victoria setup, not even
drawing flies at VAC gym.
However, the local Air Force
hoopsters have been attempting
to round out a team. Jack Pom-
fret, Jimmy Pratt and ex-Varsity
star, Harry Kermode, form the nucleus of this group.
No one has heard whether Lauries or Combines will haul their
clubs out of the mothballs, but if
they do, another four-team loop
may be arranged.
As for a gym to play in, here is
another problem. Although basketball has the priority on Pro-
Rec (V.A.C) gym, wrestling is
now well-established at this thea-
tre-under-the-stalrs.
So there we have it, —the basketball situation in a nutshell.
Maybe we should leave it there.

UBC Stars Active
In Summer Sports
•   WHILE VARSITY STUDENTS disappeared into the
summer, as most of them do every year, there were a
few outstanding athletes who found time to remain in town
and put a finger in summer sports.
While there weren't very many of them, they managed
to represent UBC in most of the season's events.   These
included baseball, fastball, lacrosse, cricket, and even tennis.
Varsity was best represented on
the baseball diamond at Capilano
Stadium. St. Regis, who fell by the
wayside to the more aggressive
Norvans, signed up one of the two
UBC baseballers, and also picked
up Maury Van Vliet, Men's Athletic Director.
HARD-LUCK HURLER
Sandy Robertson of basketball
fame, pitched fair ball for the
Saints, but managed to get beaten
in close decisions so much that he
was tagged "hard-luck hurler of
the year." Maury patrolled the
center pastures for Coley Hall's
team most of the time, but he also
tried his hand on the hot corner.
(Third base to you.)
Harry "Hopper" Franklin put in
a late appearance for the pennant-
winning Norvans, doing plenty of
snappy fielding around the keystone (second base, for you freshettes), and coaching base-runners
In the playoffs.
Reg Clarkson, Vancouver College
grid and basketball star, might also be included among Varsity
baseballers, since he is now a
freshman on the Campus. Reg.
played centre field for Arrows,
and astounded the fans with his
base-stealing. He led the league
in that bracket.
GEORGE PLAYS BOXLA
Sandy also played on the smaller diamonds with Heather Cubs'
fastballers. He didn't pitch in this
league, however, but played good
ball in centre field. Don Petrie,
starry footballer for the Blue and
Gold, was also a member of the
red-shirted Cubs, filling the first-
base position for the whole season.
George Gamble was the only student to venture Into the realm of
boxla, but ln the case of such a
game as this, It Is amazing that
there  is  even  one  Varsity  man
brave enough to barge around ln
a lacrosse box.
George Is playing for Burrards,
who  recently  trimmed the Tars
from  H.M.C.S.  Discovery   (much
to the disgust of all those who
have left UBC to join the Navy)
in the semi-finals. The Blueshirts
are   currently   receiving  a   trimming at  the hands of the  New
Westminster Salmonbellies in the
finals.
The   Varsity   cricket   XI   was
headed by Maury Van Vliet again.
In tennis there was Reg Anderson,
Bill Wood and Lois Reid, all of
whom competed in the Vancouver
Doubles Tennis  Tournament last
week.   Reg.  won  the  men's title
at the Jericho Tennis Club this
summer,
Of course there were others who
did their part in summer sports.
Almost everyone  went in swimming, and some took time out for
a round of golf.   But, in general,
Varsity wasn't so very outstanding
in sports.   However, this is to be
expected,  and doubtless the students will be out to bring athletic
fame to the Blue and Gold again
this term.
Yanks Teach 'Em How
Razzing Stuns Londoners
LONDON (U.P.)-British spectators are learning all about the
game of baseball, including the art
of heckling, from watching contests that are played almost daily
in an open grassy spot in Hyde
Park that used to be devoted to
cricket,
The games are taking the play
away from the soapbox orators and
crowds of British onlookers line
the edges of the diamond.
Veterans of a few sessions appreciate the fast action of hitting
and handling the ball and slowly
begin to master the fine points of
the game. But the exchange of
rude remarks between spectators
and players remain forever slightly beyond their ken. Nothing like
that ever happened at a cricket
match.
In a recent contest between Americans and Canadians, three Canadian naval officers, who had obviously had a few "mild and bitters," gave the other British onlookers a superb lesson In heckling,
a la Brooklyn.
When one GI missed a fast curve
by a mile, the Canadians roared in
And then to reassure the Cana-
raucous voices, "He must be from
Alabama. He's too lazy to take a
good swing at the ball."
dian pitcher, "Don't worry about
him. He swings like a rusty gate."
Not very original, but effective,
because the GI struck out. Then
the Canadians cried, "Come on
over here."
The Yank walked on over and
the Canadians jumped up and
pumped his hand. "You're not mad
at us, are you?" they asked.
"Naw, I'm not mad," the American replied.
The Canadian team came up
to bat and the naval officers began
sticking their verbal barbs In the
American pitcher. The heckling
became more violent and vehement.
Finally the pitcher shouted,
"Y'got any gum, chum?"
This surprised the Canadians,
who replied that they hadn't any.
The pitcher walked over and gave
each of them a stick of gum.
"O.K., now," he said, "you've
got something to keep your mouth
filled, so keep it shut"
The English watched this byplay ln amazement. They couldn't
believe it was just part of the
game.
. "Don't they ever get mad at each
other?" one little old English woman, addressing the world at
large, asked in wonderment.

Frosh-Soph Hoop Tilt For Monday
• the gospel...
According to LUKE MOYLS
HALLELLUJAH, I'M A SCRIBE
•   "FORASMUCH AS MANY haVe taken in hand to set
forth in order a declaration of those things which are
most surely believed among us ... it seemed good to me
also, having had perfect understanding from the very first,
to write junto thee , . ."
So declares St. Luke in the opening words of his famous
story which appears in the popular best-seller, The Bible.
And likewise, also do I (with all due apologies to St. Luke)
hereby commit, myself to print (although this is no bestseller) with another gospel, albeit quite different since -it
shall deal with sports, which is exclusively for the benefit
of all you lucky readers.
Although, unlike the great disciple, I do not profess to
be a saint, nevertheless I figure I can.give you a fair line after
a year of varied experience on local sheets.
I started off- with the Ubyssey (oh! that old thing) after
much persuasion from a character name of Charles Q. Claridge, last year's sports editor. (Chuck is looking quite tiddly
in a navy uniform these days.)
Success: The Bugle Calls
Graduating from this well-known sheet in April, I looked
about for summer employment just like any other unsuspecting student who is working his way through college. Mind
you, I had no intentions of turning pro as a sports scribe,
but when the Bowen Island Bugle actually promised a job
with pay . . . well!
However, this was no place for an up and going sports
writer as myself, or so said Carlos Q. Robertson, the man
in charge of the sports department at the Vancouver News
Herald, western Canada's largest morning newspaper (plug).
Here they paid me 25 cents a week more than the Bugle
which offered tremendous wages ranging as high as $9.25
It week. But on top of all this the News H. gave me "all the
copy paper I could eat and plenty of pencils to chew".
(Swiped from Clancy "It Says Here" Lor anger.)
During my four months employment as the News H., I
went through more thrilling experiences than I could relate
in 14 million columns. Variety is what I like, and variety
is what I got.
What A Sports Menu!
On my sports menu for the summer were track, tennis,
and golf meets, lacrosse, baseball, fastball, rowing, wrestling,
soccer, bowling, swimming and diving. They even called
me "Duckeye" after doing rewrite jobs on the hunting and
fishing columns.
Of course, my favorite sports are tennis, track and
swimming meets. There is always plenty of cheesecake at
these, especially at the aquatic events. t >
Then there was the wrestling down at the Seamen's Club
and the Pro-Rec Gym. This wrestling is nothing less than
a racket.. If there is anything a University student, even as
myself shouldn't do, it is to meet up with such characters as
bang each other around a ring, grunting and groaning the
while.
For the first week, I was gasping at every hammerlock
and body slam, and my stories were nothing lass than sensational (it says here). But quite suddenly I took a dislike to
these crude exhibitions and turned tp catching up on lost
sleep somewhere in the back row. I collected the results
after the show was done, and my stories were much more
readily approved by Robertson and Loranger, Inc.
Then Came The 19th Hole
A week at the Jericho*Tennis Club covering a junior
tourney proved more than slightly interesting. Reg. Anderson, another Varsity star who took the men's championship,
showed me the rounds here. The meet came to a smashing
finale as yours truly trounced Bill Tutte, Vancouver Sun
reporter, in a grudge match, taking five bucks on the side.
Figuring I was sadly overworked after this effort, they
gave me a week's holiday with pay, both of which I spent
up the coast a little way.
And then there was the press golf tourney. Playing my
first round of golf, I turned in a sizzling 143 to take the cake
in the high gross bracket. They gave me the maximum
handicap of 34, but I was still the only one with a three-figure
score.
I took another beating at the 19th hole.

As Sport Scribe
• DID YOU EVER have a secret yearning to be a famous
sports writer? Of course you did.
Do you like coke, especially when
it's free? Naturally. Would you
like to knock around a place
where you can act worse than you
would at home? Absolutely. Do
you like parties, especially where
there are gorgeous women with
ration books? Sounds like fun!
And so it is. In fact, it's delicious.
Now this is no attempt at bribery. Let's call it subtle persuasion. But, at any rate, these are
just a few of the things the Pub
offers. What! You never heard
of the Pub! Well, for all you un-
initiates, the Pub is the Publications Board, local den of iniquity
on the Campus.
And when you join the , sports
staff of the Ubyssey, you'll know
you're on the road to success. Any
journalist knows that a sports department offers the best chance for
anyone who desires to become a
news-writing genius.
Incidentally, it'll help you if you
can write reasonably good stories.
This is just a sideline, of course,
but now and then, when a newspaper is put out, one or two of
them have to be written.

Five Hoop
Aces Here
for Frosh
• FRESHMEN AND SOPHOMORES will tangle in one of
the deadliest of basketball games
next Monday at noon. The annual affair is slated to wind up all
differences between the two rival
groups.
This year, as in 1942, the Frosh
seem to have the stronger team,
including five Inter A stars of
last year, Ed Ryan, Reg Clarkson,
Pat McGeer, Fred Bossons and
Gerry  Stevenson.
In 1942, the freshmen had Art
Stilwell, Sandy Robertson, Gordy
Sykes, Ole Bakken and Paddy
Wescott. And In that year the
Frosh took a 20-19 decision from
the second year squad.
Last year, the Sophs had little
difficulty in taming the first year
kids to the tune of 18-12. However,
when last year's battle started, it
looked like the Frosh would win.
With the opening toss-up, both
teams seemed to be evenly balanced, and play was fairly even
in the first canto.
FROSH STARTED WELL
However, the Frosh managed to
get the better of the scrap on the
shooting end, and consequently
were up on the second year team,
5-2 at the quarter mark.
When the whistle blew for the
second stanza, coach Art Johnson
of the Sophs, who had been arguing throughout the intermission
with referee Harry Franklin,
marched off the floor with his
team.
Suddenly, Ave bedraggled figures
tore onto the floor. They were
dressed In sweat pants which dated
back to 1906, and rugby sweaters
that had seen better days, This
waa the Sophs' second string.
The second line, though, seemed
to click much better than the first
bunch, and at half time the score
stood at 8-7 for the Sophs. These
boys played so well that M. L. Van
Vliet was thinking of using them
on the Thunderbirds. But this
was no surprise. The former
Freshmen had played for the'Birds
in their first year.
NOT THEM AGAIN!
The second string included Stilwell, Sykes, Bakken, Robertson
and Wescott.
However, they returned to the
dressing -rooms at the half-way
mark to be replaced by the less-
outstanding lint squad. Somehow
they managed to keep ahead, but
the Frosh, under the coaching of
Bruce Yorke, came up steadily.
The surprise came when the sensational quintet, whom the spectators had thought had retired to
the showers, streamed onto the
floor again at three-quarter time.
In the final canto, they showed
no mercy on the first year crew,
despite the tact that they brought
forth such stars as Don Woodhouse
and Ron Weber, both of whom
joined the Thunderbirds last year
as freshmen, The final whistle
blew with the count 18-12.

Plans Ice Rink
MINNEAPOLIS (UP.)-Holdlng
first rank among.the roseate postwar dreams of athletic officials is
a gargantuan winter-sports building with ample seating capacity
and play space for a variety of
events that would include hockey,
speed and figure skating, and ice
extravagaalzas.
Such an Indoor winter wonderland might already be fact but for
the war, for, according to Dr. Lou
Keller, acting director of athletics,
tentative plans had been drawn for
it before Pearl Harbor, and a site
was being considered.
The plans, however, likely will
undergo considerable change in
line with postwar construction aids
that will be available.
Keller would like to have one
skating rink of approximately 210
by 85 feet for hockey games, speed
skating and student ke shows, and
a smaller one for recreational use
of the student body.
The Gopher athletic chief looks
for a sharp upswing in player and
spectator interest in the college
version of ice sports after the war.
"If Minnesota, Michigan, Illinois
and Wisconsin all should develop
first class hockey teams," he said,
"I feel sure we would have an
interest here that would draw
crowds of 10,000."

AMS Establishes $1000 Campus Accident Fund
Loss On AMS Insurance
Policy Forces Change
• ABANDONMENT of the Alma Mater Society Insurance
policy and establishment instead of an amendment to the
AMS Code which would allow the AMS to pay up to $150
for students injured on the campus, was decided upon at a
special council meeting last week.
Although it is not necessary to
call a general AMS meeting for
student ratification of an amendment to the code, the action will
be voted on at the semi-annual
meeting this fall.
Reason for discontinuing the
policy is that the Society has paid
out in premiums during 1943-44
|H00 and claimed approximately
$150.
Council believes that it would
be less expensive to pay students
injured ln campus accidents directly out of the treasury than
pay premiums.
This action followed a report by
Dick Bibbs, chairman of a committee set up last year to investigate UBC's insurance scheme and
other universities' plans.
NOT OVER flSO
Elsewhere on this page is a chart
showing the insurance paid by
other major Canadian Universities.
The amendment passed by Council states that "the Students Council may in its absolute discretion
pay or authorize payment to any
member or other person the
amount of or any portion of the
expenses of any member in or
about the University, or elsewhere
if having to do with University
activities, whether as a result of
participation in any student activity or not, provided that in no
event shall the payment to any
person in respect of any single
injury or loss suffered during any
college year exceed the sum of
$150.00.
"Provided that the total amount
which the Students' Council shall
have authority to pay for and in
respect of injuries or damages suffered during any college year as
aforesaid shall not exceed $1,000.00.
No payment shall be made to any
member until after the end of the
college year. If expenses of injuries or damages suffered by
members during any college year
shall exceed the sum of $1,000 the
Students' Council shall have power
in its absolute discretion, to prefer
one or more than one to the others
or to pay the same in any order of
priority or in any proportion deemed At by it.
LESS EXPENSIVE
Such payment shall be entirely
ex gratia. This clause shall be
deemed to confer no right upon
any member for loss or damage
sustained.
The AMS already holds a Public
Liability Policy for $70,000, individual claim limit of $10,000 premium
of $75, for three years.
Many attempts were made in past
years to achieve an accident insurance policy, but have been allowed to lapse.       ,
The amendment to the code
would provide the same benefits
to students as the accident insurance policy, but will be less
expensive.
• COPIES of last year's yearbook, the Totie, may be obtained from the AMS office on
presentation of a Students Pass.
Quite a few copies were returned in the malls and these are now
available. All those who attended
university last year and did not
receive a Totie please call at the
AMS office for their copy.

Bus Line vehicles will again form
queues at the termini of the line
at all times of the day in order to
increase speed and efficiency, announces Harley Thornton, B.C.
Electric Bus Supervisor in the
University Area.
These queues, for the benefit of
those who are new on the campus,
were instituted last year in a stern
effort to abolish the scenes of
mobs and violence which took
place as students tried to pack
into the busses.
Harley stated that the student
co-operation in queueing-up last
year was excellent and that if it
is as good this year he will have
no complaints.
"We will do our part to get
more students there faster," he
added.
Similarly to last year, two
queues will be formed, one for
the back entrance to the bus and
the other for the front. Have

National Student CouncU Likely
Bibbs Favors Reviving
Student Federation
By UBYSSEY STAFF REPORTER
•   ESTABLISHMENT of a national council of Canadian
University students seems likely this year as a result
of the Western Inter-Varsity Conference in Edmonton last
February.
THE  UBYSSEY
Page Seven
e The conference recommended
formation of such a body, and the
idea has already been taken up
by several universities.
In a letter to AMS resident Dick
Bibbs, Robert Ellis, president of
the S t u d e n t s' Representative
Council of the University of Saskatchewan, strongly recommends
Immediate establishment of tho
council.
Ellis' plan is to form a union of
all thc university councils in Canada. The National Student Council
would be a body representing all
the students throughout Canada,
and would express their ideas
through either the radio or the
press.
Bibbs has placed the plan before
UBC's council for action, but replied to Ellis that UBC favors a
revival of the National Federation
of Canadian University Students,
which suspended action in the Fall
of 1940.
FEDERATION 'FAVORED
"This Federation," said Bibbs,
"had in previous years established
a fine record in arranging lnter-
university debates, inaugurating
and operating Exchange Scholarship Ian, in sponsoring its annual
conference and ln maintaining a
permanent secretary."
He maintained that because the
conferences were held at Christmas time, it was possible to put
its resolutions in effect, and because student presidents attended
there was a stronger chance for
the resolutions to be made effective and less likelihood of impractical proposals gaining support.
Ellis stated that "students should
take a wider view and much more
active part in Canadian affairs of
all description."
DUTY TO PEOPLE
. "We think that there is a certain duty owed by university students to the rest of the Canadian
people. It seems to me that we,
who are studying diverse subjects and who have masses of information at our fingertips, could
be and should be a suorce of information and leadership for Canadian  society."
He argued that there are many
university students today who have
very definite opinions concerning
Canadian political and social structure. These opinions would be expressed over radio programs.
Bibbs stresses the belief that
"any organization set up should
concern itself first with student
activities, student government,
national or local regulations governing students both during the
war apd after; and that the conferences should be directed toward bettering the students' lot."
He differed with Ellis, as the
UBC delegation to the Inter-Var-
slty Conference disagreed with the
other delegations,  about political
discussions.
"I agree that many university
students today have very definite
opinions concerning our Canadian
political and social structure,"
said Bibbs, "but the diversity of
opinions I have already heard
convinces me that it would be unwise to attempt, and impossible
to effect, a channel through which
they can voice them."
POLITICAL DISCUSSIONS
He maintained that students
with political convictions have
every right to associate themselves
individually with political parties,
but to attempt to speak politically
for students through a national
student organization would disrupt that organization.

WUS fllay Adopt
foster Children
Under War Plan
• THE FOSTER parent's plan
for war children will be considered by the Women's Undergraduate Society this year, according to President Barbara Greene.
The plan entails providing money for the care of orphan children
of the United Nations. They are
"adopted" by long-distance and
the "parent" sends money for education and room and board.
Money payments can be made
at $15 a month for one year or $50
a year. Each foster parent guarantees to help a child for one year,
ana agrees to maintain a personal
relationship with ihe child by an
exchange of letters.
The foster parent receives as
soon as possible a photograph,
name, age and brief history of the
foster child.
Every child is told clearly how
he Is being provided for and who
his foster parent is. In this way,
chUdren who have often lost all
personal ties wUl be encouraged
to feel the existence of a personal
friend rather than a vague dispenser of charity.
UBC FIRST
Eighty-nine primary, secondary
and Sunday schools in the United
States have adopted children from
the forty-four children's projects
the organization operates in England and Malta. *
Foster parents Include Mrs.
Eleanor Roosevelt, Representative
Claire Boothe Luce, Kate Smith,
Helen Hayes, Cornelia Otis Skinner, Kay Kyser, Fred Allen, Jack
Benny and Clifton Fadiman.
If the plan is adopted here, UBC
will be the first university to enter
the scheme.

LONG VOYAGE ENDED
Several weeks later a wonderful thing happened, I arrived at
the end of the last line.
"Well," inquired the man in
front of me, disinterestedly smothering a yawn, "and what might
be bothering you?"
"Who, me? Why I came here to
get a permit to go to work, but
that," I quipped brightly, "was so
long ago I can't remember what
the work was."
"We have just the place for you,"
he chirped, a note of happiness
creeping momentarily into his
voice, "the Beastly Electric has
been'asking for strong husky—I
mean they have asking for men to
take up important positions in a
very essential branch of their
company. Yes, yes, light work-
time off for lunch—15 cents an
hour with a raise every six months
—and you don't dig ditches all the
time. J*m sure you - - - -"
"No! no!" I broke In desperately,
"It all comes back to me now. I
was to work in the shipyards at
77 cents an hour."
MURRIN NEEDS HELP
A look of shocked surprise
crossed his  face.
"Look," I insisted, "I've already
got the job, all I want from you
is permission to start work, provided I'm not over the retirement
age."
I could see he was pained, not
to say disgusted, by my failure
to appreciate his kind efforts.
Nevertheless he finally drew a
form from his drawer, and sat
with pen poised, ready to fill it in.
"Name?" he asked.  I told him.
"Dear me," he murmured triumphantly. "This will never do.
Your middle initial is "W" and I
only handle from F to V. Please
go over and stand in the line second from the right in the North

MacKenzie Sees Great
Expansion for UBC
* NEARLY eight hundred freshmen, comprising the largest
freshman class in the history of the University (according,
to reliable, but unofficial sources) packed the auditorium
last Friday to be welcomed by newly-appointed president,
Dr. Norman A. M. MacKenzie as he made his first address
to winter session students.
He  told  Frosh  that they  owe
much to those serving overseas,     ———-————————-
and that they are responsible for
"living up" to the opportunities
granted to them as a necessity by
the government of Canada..
"Thanks to the courage and tenacity of our brothers and sisters
overseas, Germany is about
through," he said. "There is no
question of the fate of Japan."
NEW WORLD
"The fact that the war is drawing
to a close means that the building
of a new world will become a reality," he declared. "You will
have a major place and part in
that new world and it is our duty
to see that you take that place."
"We. will do a?l we can to help
you", he said, "We are at your
service. Your conduct is best left
with you subject to your good
name and the good name of the
President Sees
University.
He prophesied a great expansion
of U.B.C, outdistancing the growth
of all other Canadian universities.
"Numerically we are in the top
three or four universities in Canada, but for potential expansion,
we are the first," he said.

Student Lodging
Problem Reaches
Wartime Height
By BRUCE BEWELL
• OUT-Ojr-TOWN students can
be seen trudging through the
streets of Point Orey in a desperate
search for lodgings.
Students registering for the first
time at UBC are finding it very
difficult to get satisfactory room
and board for the coming session.
Houses known to have taken in
boarders in past ydars are beseiged
with phone calls from previous
residents, even from four years
back.
COST RISES
The cost of room "and board has
risen so that it is not unusual to
hear of students paying $45 per
month for a single room. One
engineer reports with disgust that
he is paying $40 per month for accommodation in a double room
with an artsman.
Chief reason for the shortage of
lodgings is that landladies seem to
prefer the year-round business of
the servicemen to the seasonal
trade of the students. There are
also large numbers of war workers
filling the boarding houses formerly occupied by the students.
WEST END
Old time residents of Point Grey
complain that this swing from the
students to the permanent boarder
will make the district into another
West End.
Cap Todhunter, general manager
of the University Student Co-operation Association, reports that
there were 4 applications for every
vacancy in the organization. However, a last minute windfall will
make accommodation available for
approximately another 20 men
students.
Home Economies
Expands To Four
Vear Course
• A   STANDARD   FOUR   year
course  leading to  the  degree
of Bachelor of Home Economics
will be initiated at the University
of British Columbia this year.
Pioneer members of the course
introduced last year who followed
the more advanced clothing and
cookery classes will be granted
credit for two years and wiil take
third year subjects this semester.
The first Home Economics degrees
are to be conferred in 1946.
Household equipment and furnishing, economics of the household, solutions of cookery problems, diet planning for different
food levels and identification of
various textiles will be studied
this term by home-career co-eds.
Textile-testing apparatus to examine the washability and color
fastness of fabrics, and a loom to
demonstrate the weaves of different fabrics have been acquired
by this department.
New staff members are: Miss
Charlotte Black, formerly resident
instructor at the Home Management House at the University of
Washington, and Miss Nina Morley, a University of Toronto graduate with dietetic training at the
Vancouver General Hospital..
They elected Mr. wood Honorary
President and Director and organized a club. The first play was
Jerome K. Jerome's "Fanny and
the Servant Problem" which was
presented in 1016.
High spots in the thirty years of
the club's career have been "Hed-
da Gabler," "Candida," and "Pride
and Prejudice."
This   being   anniversary   year,
members of the club hope to be
able to put forward a really outstanding performance.
ANNIVERSARY YEAR
Because the Player's Club can

Students Riot
Over Extra Hour
(By British United Press)
WORCESTER, . Massachusetts. —
The Superintendent of Schools in
Worcester, Thomas Powers, is a
hunted man.
More than 25-hundred of the
city's high school students stormed
City Hall today carrying placards
declaring, "W e Want Powers'
Body." The students were dispersed after' battles with 50 policemen.
It all started when an extra hour
was added to the students' daily
schedule—an hour which they are
going to put up a tough fight to
keep.
The students milled around outside the city hall, calling for an
audience with Mr. Powers, and
shouting, "We want shorter hours."
SEARCH
But the superintendent was not
in his office, and apparently was
not in the building for a frantic
search through various offices drew
a blank.
Police were called when leaders
of the group climbed to a balcony
and began to harangue the shouting crowd. A heated battle involving rotten tomatoes and several
fist fights took place, but the group
was finally brought under control
and two youths were taken into
custody.
Dining Room May
Open In Brock
• LABOR trouble looms again
as plans for the alleviation of
the "Caf crush" by opening the
Brock Hall dining room come up
against employment difficulties.
If sufficient waitresses can' be
found the dining room may open
this week.
If so, regular lunches will be
served at a minimum cost as in
the past. The dining room, closed
for the 1943-44 sesion because of
the shortage of help, is located
behind the main lounge on the
North side of the building.

Jalopies Seen
DETROIT, Mich. (UP)-America
after the war will be a nation full
of jalopies, according to Joseph W.
McDougal, president of Miller Mfg.
Co., Toolmakers. Hardly a passenger car and very few trucks will be
less than three years old. Seventeen million of ^ie twenty-six million motor vehicles on the road
will be seven or more years old,
he said. Auto repair facilities will
expand vastly when gas, tire and
other war restrictions are removed.
"From the standpoint of opportunity and in view of the smailness
of required investment, the auto
repair station likely will prove attractive to those returning soldiers
and demobilized munition workers
who have skill aptitude as mechanics," McDougal asserted.
"A man alone or with his buddy,
could get off to a start in this line
of small business with a rented
place and a sackful of tools."
(Ditch Captures
Thirty Beauties
• "MITCH" MITCHELL, amiable
custodian of the Brock, has a
good Une.
Thirty piscatorial beauties fell
prey to said line on a pre-varslty
month's holiday at Gower Point
taken by "Mitch" and his son,
Flying Officer George Mitchell,
home on leave following operational duties overseas.
Defending his one - fish - a - day
record against fish story scoffers,
Mr. Mitchell can demurely point
with pride to a cupboard full of
preserved salmon which he did up
with his own little hands—and a
pressure cooker.
Domesticated Mr. Mitchell, who
resumes his Brock guardianship
duties this week, will keep his line
for the fish.
Berlin Claims
Russian forces
Attack Warsaw
MOSCOW, Sept. 18-(BUP) -
Radio Berlin claimed today that
Russian troops were making a
frontal assault on Warsaw, but
Moscow had nothing to say on the
battle.
A late Russian communique reports that German attacks have
been beaten off in Latvia, Berlin
says a deep Soviet break-through
in this area towards Riga has created a critical situation for the
Germans in the Baltic countries.
The big news from Eastern Europe is of a diplomatic nature. Russian troops in Rumania have taken
the first big Allied bag of major
axis war criminals. The Russians
have arrested 10 Romanian and
German military and political
leaders. The haul includes former
Romanian Premier Antonescu and
Dr. Karl Clodius, Germany's ace
economic expert.
