the harvest season with their Spring
Fiesta in Brock Hall.
There'll be colorful tangos, rhumbas,
congos, sambas and other authentic
Latin-American dances - and all the
fun and frolic of a Spanish carnival.
Featured in the floorshow will be the
dance team ot German Guevara and
Betty MacLeod, in a display of tango
steps.
Guevara is from Mexico City and
his  pretty partner  is from  Chile.
Musical director Albert Mansfield

smaller nations into backing their
policies and turn the UN into an
instrument of power politics.
Other threats to UN success mentioned were: U.S. intervention in
China and the attempt by the Mai-
shall plan to by-pass thc Economic
and Security council.
A. J. MacDonald, MLA, speaking
on behalf of the Progressive-Conservative Party contended that with
the U.S. as the most powerful instrument of world peace backing it, the
UN stood a much better chance of
success than  the League  of  Nations.
Liberal speaker, Douglas Brown,
said Canada's foreign policy "which
is non-political in nature" is a constructive effort towards world peace.
"Canada wants no special conces-
or territories, only world peace," he
said.
Mrs. Dorothy Steeves, former CCF
MLA, said that we must not "dismiss
through wishful thinking the enmity
which exists between the U.S. and the
USSR but, instead, we must make
a sincere effort to make the U.N.
work despite all  difficulties."
Coucil Accepts
Clarke Walk-Out
At a special meeting of student
council yesterday noon, resignation
of WUS President Nora Clarke was
unanimously accepted by council
members.
Tlie walk-out by the Women's President was the first resignation in ten
years  .
Miss Clarke accused Council of being a "machine where council members opinions were passed off as
babble.' Formal notice of her resignation was received in Council chambers this morning.
WUS vice-president, Rosemary
Byrne will fill the presidential post for
the remainder of the year,
AMS President Grant Livingstone
told The Daily Ubyssey late yesterday
that he was sorry that Miss Clarke
saw fit to "walk-out" so near the end
of the term. lie did not retract his
statement that she had shown "irresponsibility" in her office a.s WUS
President.

came to B. C. where he was appointed

WORLD TOUR
During the first world war he was
sent on a world tour by the Canadian
government to explore export markets for Canadian lumber. He was so
impressed with the possibilities in
that field, especially the Orient, that
he resigned from the B. C. Forestry
Service. Soon he was the largest exporter on the West Coast, had estab-
lshed his own shipping firm, expanded
in two large scale sawmills and into
timber ownership to supply those
mills. Small scale plywood plants were
started, which became the largest
plywood manufacturing enterprise in
Canada.

The largest Banquet hall in the city, the main ballroom of
the Hotel Vancouver, will be the scene of the giant Commerce
Graduation Banquet to be held -tonight. The attendance is expected to run to four figures as the Commerce Undergraduate
Society has been successful in making use of all available
accofhmodation.
The principle speaker for the evening is to be one of the Province's
foremost business magnates, H. R.
MacMillan, CBE, and among the noted
guests attending will be at least four
Cabinet ministers, two ex-Lieutenant
Governors of this Province, the Chancellor and President of the University
and all Faculty and Department heads.
Business men from all parts of the
Province, and from outside the province as far south as Portland, Ore.,
and as far east as Toronto will also
be in attendance at the colossal affair.

commenced and the employee
who wishes to advance must
again do more than his job.
Most executives contacted felt that
the Commerce course was the finest
training possible for entrance into the
business world. However, a few of
them have had bitter contact with
Commerce graduates in the past, ■
Some graduates walked in and expected to take over the entire operation of the business. It behooves the
Commerce graduate to enter into his
employment with a definite desire to
learn his job and everything concerning the operations of the company.
RETAILERS EXPAND
One department store executive stated that the field of retailing was
undergoing a tremendous expansion
and that this expansion would likely
continue for another five years at
least.
The executive and Professional division of the National Employment
Service reported that entrants into the
accounting and sales fields were easiest to place. Accountants are always
in demand but the graduate must be
willing to learn.
ROOM FOR ACCOUNTANTS
Today, as a buyer's market returns,
more and better salesmen are required. Insurance companies had a
record year last year, and are hoping
for another record year. In other selling fields,, the business is becoming
highly competitive and prospective
salesmen must be willing to learn
quickly to sell and to merchandise
goods and services. The field in 1948
is wide open for a good salesman
who can produce results. By and
large, experience is welcomed, but
not  essential.
Both Professor Morrow and the
National Employment Service felt that
it was still too early to anticipate
the ease or difficulty of placing the
graduates.
EXTENSIVE   PLANNING
Months of preparations have gone
into the planning of the event, consisting of the mailing and acknowledging of invitations, the mailing of
tickets, the keeping of accurate records and the placing and receiving
of thousands of telephone calls.
Every year, Commerce Banquets
have grown in size and improved
in quality; thrice they have outgrown
the hall in which they have been
held, and this year it appears that the
largest Banquet hall in the city will
be inadequate to accommodate all
those desiring to attend.
PREXY  YARDSTICK
In the past' it has become the custom
to use the Banquet as a yardstick
for determining the ability of the CUS
President. This year will be no exception, and if advanced indications have
any meaning, under the able directorship of President Bob Wilson, the
class of '48 will have the honor of
attending the biggest and best dinner
function ever sponsored by an undergraduate body of any University in
Canada.
The Banquet climaxes four years
of study for the class of Commerce
'48, one of the largest classes to graduate  in commerce.
Time for the banquet is set at 6:15.
Commerce Girls
Seem Undaunted
In Men's Course
By SHIRLEY FORESTER
As freshettes we heard that the
Commerce department was for "Men
Only" but, nothing daunted, when
the second year rolled around, we enrolled in Commerce, The first few
days we flinched as the instructors
addressed the classes as "Gentlemen", and we soon realised that they
believed that woman's only position
in the business world should be as
a stenographer, and our time would
be better spent learning shorthand
and typing,
Then came the weary hours of labs
in accounting and stat . . . acquiring
new friends, pooling information, and
becoming adept in the art of deciphering hieroglyphics. In third year our
phones would ring and some husky
male voice would say "Hello Susie,
this is Joe Smith, I sit next to you
in Comm. 692; could you tell me
the answer to the problem tomorrow?" Slowly we gained recognition.
ONE  HINDRANCE
So far we have been barred from
only one course, perhaps because our
presence would put' a damper on the
vocabulary of the class! Finally, we
knew we had become one of the
"boys" when a couple of fellows
turned to us and said "Come on, the
coffee's on you today,"
Now in fourth year we think we are
accepted as "almost" belonging because our presence is occasionally
acknowledged by the instructors and
our views on the courses are welcomed by the males.
Hoe/, Ross, Waff, Named
In CUS Presidency Race
CUS presidential battle has
evolved into a three-way campaign with the nomination of Les
Hoel, John Ross, and Terry Watt,
third-year Commerce undergraduates, this week.
YOUNGEST CANDIDATE
Hoel, youngest presidential candidate, comes from Alberta. He
served in the RCAF and RCN
Fleet Air Arm during the war.
During the past term he has been
active on the publicity committee
of the CUS. One of the major
planks in his platform is the reorganization of the administration
of the CUS in order to bring adequate representation to all classes.
An ex-Army officer, John Ross,
is at present a member of the CUS
executive. He acted as chairman
of the Ball and Informal dance
committees as well as assisting in
the organization of the Banquet.
Ross is basing his campaign on his
past   record   in   organizing   Commerce activities.
Watt is also a student veteran
as well as being a former member
of the University of Saskatchewan,
He, too, is active in Commerce
Undergraduate activities. His platform is based on extensive plans
for social and educational activities as well as greater representation from Commerce students of
all years.

TUUM EST
University education for business is still
a relatively new experiment in this country.
For this' reason, there is an qnus of responsibility upon all persons connected with Commerce Departments and Business Administration Schools to prove the value of this
type of education and to help establish business training on a firm footing.
New ideas are rarely accepted whole
heartedly and such has been the case with
business education. Admittedly the last ten
years have seen a definite improvement in
teaching methods. Subject material has been
broadened and there has been an ever increasing awareness among business management
that business principles and business thinking
can be developed by classroom techniques.
Nevertheless, there is still much to be done
in the way of convincing both business men
and educators generally that education for
business belongs in a University classroom.
The responsibility for this complete recognition can be furthered mainly by two groups.
The faculties should be responsible for useful
business research, adequate instruction, and
laison with business. However, in the last
analysis, the burden of proof rests upon the
Commerce' Graduates themselves. Despite
anything the Faculties may or may not do,
business will evaluate Commerce education
on the basis of the job of the students. Too
often, the student errs in thinking that business owes him something because of his education. In practice the reverse is true. Business is essentially practical and basically
business wants proof that the commerce
graduate can do a given job more efficiently
than that same job can be done by a man
who is not a commerce graduate.
While the years since the war have provided certain difficulties for all educators,
in our opinion the difficulties have been more
than outweighed by the advantages. Crowded
conditions have been a real handicap. Overworked instructors have been forced to lower
the quality of instruction and have been unable to carry on adequate research,
Reduced enrollments in the future will
automatically correct these conditions. In
addition, there are many favourable factors.
The veterans have proven to be excellent
students anxious to learn, with the result
that the learning process has been speedier
and more work has been crowded into less
time. Veterans as graduates are older, more
responsible and, because of their experience,
have learned to work with other people, thus
having an advantage over younger graduates.
Finally, there has been a period of intense
business activity which has enabled us to
place the large graduating classes.
The opportunity for Commerce students
and graduates to shoulder their responsibility
is present to an unparalleled degree. More
than ever before, business needs men who are
willing and capable of filling jobs at top-
management level. Nine years of depression
along with almost six years of war, have robbed management of a great deal of potential
manpower. In our contact with business
during the past three years, we continually
hear management representatives express the
need for men who are able to fill this or that
job. Too often the compaint is that capable
men cannot be found at the present time.
Commerce graduates must not expect to
step into these jobs immediately. Regardless
of educational qualifications, experience still
is and alway will be, a necessary requisite
for success in business. Nevertheless the
present shortage will not be adequately filled
for many years and it is up to Commerce
Graduates to show the maturity, the good
judgment, the practicability and the willingness to learn, which eventually will fit them
for the positions ahead,
The faculty is proud of the students who
have graduated in the past. But the obligation
of the students does not end with this. We
must also be proud of you as businessmen.
Only in this way will you be fulfilling your
responsibility to the business which has hired
you, to the men and women who have instructed you and to the society which ha.s
educated you. Business is ready to be shown
—the way is open—TUUM EST!

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
No Justification
Editor,
The Daily Ubyssey,
University  of  British Columbia,
Dear  Sir:
My attention has been directed
to the article on the front page
of your issue of February 20,
headed, "Professor says Pills Force
Coeds to Dope Addiction." This
heading, together with the article
which follows, is entirely misleading and constitutes "an attack on
druggists," as it is described in
your publication. There is absolutely no justification for the
statement contained in your article, and it is also noted that
the name of the professor to whom
the statements are attributed is
not given. I can only assume, however, that any member of the faculty of the University of British
Columbia would be sufficiently
intelligent to check on his statements before making charges of
this type, and as I realize that
these statements are entirely unfounded in fact I can only assume
that the article represents a particularly bad job of reporting.
When an article makes such
statements as claiming it is quite
legal to sell narcotic-containing
drugs across the counter, it is obvious that there is a woeful lack
of familiarity with the true facts
of the case.
For your information I may say
that the Federal government has
a number of very impprtant acts
dealing with drugs. One of these
is the Opium and Narcotic Drug
Act. which establishes rigid con-1
trol over all narcotics and provides
that they can only be secured on
the prescription of a doctor and
that this prescription cannot be
refilled in any drug store. The
second major Federal law is the
Food and Drugs Act. This definitely regulates the quality and contents of drugs. In tlie case of
drugs which are not narcotics but
which are still dangerous to human life they are regulated by
this Act, and here again there are
very definite regulations concerning some of these drugs and the
conditions under which they may
be sold.
In addition to these Acts, th°
Provincial Pharmacy Acts in the
respective provinces exercise a
further control over the indiscriminate sale of drugs, and with a
view to the reactions and effects
of various drugs these preparations are sorted into different
schedules with different regulations governing the conditions under which the drugs in these respective   schedules   may   be   sold.
It is possible that through misquoting in reporting some of the
statements could have been attributed to preparations sold over
the counter. If this assumption is
correct, it does not concern drug
stores as preparations of this type
are covered by the Patent and
Proprietary Medicines Act of the
Dominion of Canada, and when
such preparations are registered
by the manufacturers, under this
Act, they may be purchased in
any type of store regardless of
whether or not it is a drug store.
In these cases, however, the quality and standard of the drug content of such preparations is rigidly controlled by the Federal Government,
It is the irresponsible statements
and the equally irresponsible reporting of such statements that do
much to undermine the prestige
of the professions, institutions and
communities. Apart altogether
from the slanderous and unjustified attack on the profession of
pharmacy the publicity which you
have given this matter, and which
has to some extent been reflected
in th; daily press, does, I believe,
constitute an equally untruthful
and unwarranted attack on the
standard of the morals of the
coeds of the University of British
Columbia.

Form Speaking Club
Modern education has accomplished
much in the way of (he three "r"s
but it has somewhat neglected the
fourth "R". The reading, writing and
arithmetic have all been developed
adequately in the majority of students,
but the art of rhetoric, has not.
The Men's Public Speaking Club is
one organization which gives actual
lectures in how to speak, stressing
delivery. This club is moulded about
the Commerce Department for tlie
benefit of graduates entering business
careers and teachgs them to speak
in a clear, concise, intelligent manner.
There arc about 80 members, restricted
mainly to fourth year students. A
contest if to be held this year in
March, and a cup will be presented
to the champion orator. fe

quelyn presented him with a baby
daughter, Barbara Dianne.
ACTIVE PAST
Born in Vancouver, he attended
Vancouver Public Schools and Kitsilano High School where he was elected President of the Students Council.
In addition to winning a scholarship
for scholastic ability, Harry was an
English Rugger star, and was active
in the leadership of many extra curri-
cular  activities.
In 1940, Harry enlisted in the Canadian Army; and was posted in Italy.
Subsequently he was awarded the
Military Cross for gallantry in action
at Arnheim.
After his discharge from the Canadian Army late in 1945 he spent a
short time at the University of Washington taking agriculture.

By AL MARTIN
It is said that, by his choice of Faculty, the commerce undergraduate has closed the door on Culture. To the commerceman
this means that he is to be denied the privilege of being planted
in a soil of English and History courses in which he would be
raked and hoed until he became just as smart, and twice us
green as garden cabbage.
Being given to such mundane practices as eating once a day, commerce-
men are not above the human tendency to seek vengeance.
On such occasions the Commerceman
dreams of what he would do if. If—
well if, for instance, he could fight
it out with the faculty on a field of
honour; a duel, boxing match (maybe),
or  a  game  of  hockey  or  basketball
or	
GAME STARTS
The game begins in ten minutes.
Boy wha ta line-up! Every undergrad
has turned out to shout his vengeance.
Suddenly, "Sorry folks, sold out,"
shouts Al Bergstrom from the ticket
office.
Slam! goes the ticket window, Damn!
cry the commercemen. Then a piercing call is heard above the ominous
rumble of curses. "Tickets here boys,
tickets  here,   only   twice  the regular
price."  It's no  it  can't be,  not  in
our hour of glory but  it is,  it's
Mr. Stark. We've been scalped by
faculty already. Though somewhat
disheartened, we pay and enter.
The graduating class of last year
greets us at the door shouting "Programs, programs here!'1 Having loyally
decided to remain in Canda they are
making the best of an unfortunate
situation. We brush by quickly, snatching a program as we pass, and make
our way to our seats.
Referee Bill McKay puts the ball
up at centre and the greatest basketball game in commerce history is
under way. Mr. Bell, faculty's stalwart centre, gets the toss. Bell passes
to Mahoney, Mahoney over to Burke,
Burke to Swallow, Swallow to Van
Houten, Van Houten to Swallow,
Swallow to Van Houten, Van Houten
to undergrad Bob Wilson intercepts the pass. It's a great game.
Everyone is in there fighting. Oh! Oh!
here's a penalty. Mr. Burke is called
' 9 holding Shirley Stevens. Coach
Morrow is objecting. Referee McKay
has decided to give Burke two free
shqts. Now Mahoney is holding
Shirley. Like most navy types, he
feels entitled to a shot while they
are going. Burke now makes good
his free shots.
FACULTY WINS
Now they are all clamouring around
the bench. The play has been stopped.
Double dribble by Stark of faculty.
Stark was dribbling past glamorous
Tina Howard when he broke into a
drool. Play is resumed; undergrad
ball. Wait! here's another penalty.
Steps on Mahoney of faculty, in fact
more than steps; undergrads have
Mahoney on the floor and are jumping on him. Jerry Macdonald is sent,
out of the game. Play resumes. Everyone is shooting wildly, with pistols,
spectators included, There's the
whistle to end the game.
Undergrads have made 100 shots
on basket, and scored 48. Faculty has
made 300 shots on basket and scored
10. Faculty wins 10 to 6. How? Here's
how. According to faculty rules, undergrads lose 1 point for every shot
missed over 10. 52 missed shots leave

CUS PRESIDENT RECEIVES
TRIBUTE FROM EXECUTIVE
On behalf of Professor Morrow, the Commerce Department, and the Commerce Undergraduates, we would like
to thank Bob Wilson for the splendid work he has done as
President of the CUS.
He was particularly instrumental in making the Commerce Dance the great success that it was. For the past
month or so he has been working night and day organizing
the Commerce Banquet. It is idfficult to realize the actual
amount of work entailed in organizing these functions until
you actually see it for yourself.
Bob has worked tirelessly and ceaselessly for the Commerce Undergrads and deserves the thanks of all of us.
Thanks again Bob and the best of luck to you.
CUS
CUS President Reports
On Full Year's Activities
Many reports have been copied and numerous lectures have
been skipped since the middle of Sept. 1947. There have been
many conversations over the coffee cups in the Brock Snack Bar
and many a toe rubber sucked off by the Gumbo on the way
to the Bus Stop. These are the little everyday happenings in the
life of a Commerceman, but crammed in between these little
gems of college life lie many hours of planning and hard work.
Undergraduate operations were un-^>-
der way long before the student body
arrived back on the campus. The opening of the new book exchange came
only after many nights of preparation.
That it was a success, there is no
doubt. That it could be better, will
be proven this Fall. Many Universities across Canada have written to
us requesting information on this
operation. It is something that has
been needed for a long time, and
Commerce again led the way.
Fall   activities   included  a   general
meeting   in   the   Auditorium,   where
we had the good fortune to hear an
address by Mr. G. G. Andrew.
CHRISTMAS ACTIVITIES
Xmas seemed to sneak up from nowhere about this time, and the air
was filled with the sound of new
text books cracking for the first time,
as stat formulas were hastily transferred from the text to a place where
they would do some good . . . the
wrist.
The ink had just about worked off
the wrists and most of the Post
Office palour had disappeared in time
for the Privateer's Promenade under
the able chairmanship of John Ross.
It was at this regatta that the good
brig "Ma Honey" was almost scuttled,
but to the surprise of all attending
it was rumoured that the hulk of the
good ship was seen rounding one of
the buoys on the campus early the
next morning.
NEW REGALIA
It was hoped this year to firmly
establish the blazer as the sign of a
Commerceman. Negotiations are not
as yet completed as to price at which
they will be sold. It is hoped that substantial savings will be made possible
if enough Commercemen and women
sign up for these jackets.
This year through the courtesy of
the Department, it was possible for the
undergraduates to have an office of
their own, This one factor contributed
considerably to the more efficiert
workings of the society.
Of This
And That
And That...
It  might well  have been—,  Godiva
went racing through the room
For there was stark amazement, where
before was only gloom.
A    hundred    cups    of    coffee    were
suspended in mid-air
Twice matched were they by bloodshot   eyes,   fixed   in   bewildered
stare.
They dwelt upon  the  stranger,  who
half  hidden   by  the  smoke
Beguiled   us  all,   and   only  he,   that
heavy silence  broke.
Like  pointers  trained—all  ears  were
strained
To catch the words he spoke.
", . . absolute knowledge I have none
But  my  Aunt's  Washerwoman's  son
Heard a policeman on his beat
Say to a laborer in the street
That he had a letter just last week
Written  in  the  finest Greek
By a Chinese coolie in Tim Buc Tu
Who claimed" that the natives in Cuba
knew
Of a colored man in a Texas town
Who   got   it   straight   from   a   circus
clown
That a man  in the Klondyke heard
the newsj
From   a   worker   on   the   dredging
crews
That  a   man   in   Borneo   claimed   to
know
A  swell  Society  female  fake
Whose   mother-in-law  would  undertake
To prove that her husband's sister's
niece
Had staled in a printed piece
That a  friend  of hers, had a  friend
named Stout
Who   knew   what   STAT,    was   all
about."
All Time Record
For Book Store
This year, the University book-
exchange was successfully operated
by the CUS under the direction of
Bob Wilson, Commerce president,
510,000 worth of business went
through the wicket's of the exchange
before the end of October, establishing an all time record of sales.
A new system was devised, whereby
24 hour priority slips were used to
avoid long lineups, and was proven
particularly successful. With the experience gained from this year's operation, it is expected that even a greater volume of business will be possible
this fall.
Applications are now being accepted by the Commerce executive for
the position of a paid manager of
the exchange, Tlie right man can
easily earn his University fees. Further information can be obtained at the
CUS office, but no applications will
be accepted after March 30,
A Statement
Of Facts
By BOB WILSON
MR. R. A. MAHONEY, graduate of
Harvard School of Business Administration and lecturer in Industrial
Management ,is author of the editorial
on page two.
NICE DAY!!
A 6 foot scienceman and a 4 foot
commerceman were walking along the
campus the other day. The commerce-
man was a home town boy and the
scienceman was from Podunk, Sask,
"You know," said the red sweater,
"They have wonderful wheat in Saskatchewan—kernels weigh a half pound
each." i
'How so?" said  the commerceman.
Climate, my boy, Climate," said the
scienceman. "Yup," continued the red
sweater, "Things grow so fast there
you plant something in the mornin
and its ready for harvest at noon.'
"How so?" said four foot Joe the
commerceman.
"Climate, my boy, climate," said the
red sweater. 'Yup," he continued, "We
had trees there bigger'n the California redwoods."
"How so?" said the commerceman,
"Climate, my boy, climate," replied
the scienceman.
"Say," said the commerceman, "I
gotta girl friend—beautiful gal—wonderful—she's eight foot tall." Just
then the red sweater interposed. "Say
how does a little squirt like you ever
get around to kissing a girl like that?"
"CLIMATE, MY BOY, CLIMATE!"
said the commerceman.
Our case has never been
stronger. Commercemen are in
a position to ask loudly, "Why
are we still a Department?"
But do we hear that question?
Not from a great number. It is
my guess that Commercemen
are not aware of the facts.
Although only a Department, Commerce graduates are the second lagg-
esl body on the campus. In the Congregational ceremonies last May,
Commerce accounted for 18% of the
total Undergraduate Degrees conferred, and for 24% of the Degrees
granted in the Faculty of Arts and
Science. In the October Ceremonies
the percentage was even greater.
There are about 800 students registered in Commerce, and many more in
their first year hoping to enter Commerce. Yet Comerce is a Department.
NOT ALONE
There are other bodies on the
campus asking for a change of status,
and while I do not question their
claims, or the facts that! jjustify their
claim, it is evident that their problem involves a large outlay of capital
and many administrative difficulties
that Commerce is not faced with.
Since the establishment of the Commerce Department in 1938, enrollment has increased tenfold, and many
more and better courses have been
given, and particularly, downtown
business  has  become  aware  of  us.
If a separate school or Faculty of
Business were to be established, it
would do more than simply add prestige to our degree. Firstly, it would
meet the growing demands of a rapidly expanding field. More freedom
would be given in th school in arranging courses, and in making connections and relations with the business world. The possibilities of attracting graduate students for work
in connection with industrial and
commercial problems peculiar to British Columbia would become greater,
A COMMERCE PROBLEM
How may these changes be effected? This is not a departmental problem, it is the problem of every Commerceman. It can be brought about by
Student Organization in the form of
the Commerce Undergraduate Society. Commercemen are active, very
active; but' unfortunately for Commerce as a unit, these activities are
divided.
Let us have action. It must originate from your executive. We need
your ideas and active support. It
must be carried on by the new executive that you elect this March. The
opportunity to voice your opinion
will be at the general meeting in the
Auditorium on March 1st. Come out
to hear your new executive speak.
Vote for your candidate and give
him your continued support.
YOU HAVE THE FACTS,
Said Joe Commerce to his new girl
friend: "You know dear I've never
made love to a girl before"—as he
shifted the gears with his feet.
Old Maid—A Commerce girl who
has  said   no   once   too   often.

By HERB CAPOZZI
To the average UBC student there is only one man meaner
than Simon Legree—the ogre of the football field, Greg "Hard-
rock" Kabat. But, like the sweet young innocent said, "Don't
let outward appearances fool you."
As the one person on  this campus

who has taken as much, if not more
tongue-lashing from the "man of
steel" than anyone, I would like to
inform the public that he is definitely
not human—he is super-human,
HOLD YOUR HATS
There are many unknown facts a-
bout this 20th century superman that
are not generally known. For instance,
did you know that he was All American guard at Wisconsin, and was
picked by Knute Rockne as the best
guard he had ever seen. Kabat is the
holder of the Canadian shot-put record—only six inches short of the
world record. He has high-jumped
6'6", and is the holder of the Wisconsin Junior Golf Championship. He
still holds the 220 record at Wisconsin, and to top everything off, (hold
your hats,) he was an All American
Basketball player. "Hardrock" is also
skilled at ping-pong, swimming, and
baseball.
However, enough of such eulogies,
the claim still stands that he is the
meanest' thing since Kennedy began
watering scotch, Be not deceived!
Check with any American football
player, and you will discover that
this "meaness" is but a myth built
up by certain overzealous sportswri-
ters from downtown.
NOT MEAN
Any player who has played with
him or under him will inform you
in no uncertain terms that Greg is
stern but not unjust, hard but not
cruel,  and  tough  but very capable..
I am certain that you will find no
player who will say that Kabat is
mean. He has an uncanny ability of
being able to discern between an
imaginary injury and a serious one.
His record of almost no serious injuries to his players confirms his care
in playing only men whom he feels
confident are in good enough physical condition to play  the game.
To quote him, "It's a tough game
and you have to be in shape to play
it.
There is talk of new coaches, of
obtaining better men—I think I speak
for all of us when I say that every
member of the footbal team stands
behind  Greg Kabat,  coach and man.
Soccermen Play
Saturday Game
i Out to avenge the 2-1 upset they
suffered at the hands of Empire
Hotel last weekend, Millar McGill's
Varsity soccerites will face the Empires again on Saturday at Powell
St. Grounds, determined to pull even
with the blue shirted hotelmen. The
Empires have taken the odd game
in three so far this season.
Since so much time has been lost
through adverse weather, V and
D Soccer league moguls have announced that the schedule will be
terminated as soon as one team
clinches first place. At present it si
developing into a fight between Varsity and Empire Hotel, although Collingwood and North Burnaby are still
very much in the race.
With only three games to go, Varsity has n potential of 28 points, whereas the Empires have nine games left
for a possible of 32 points if they win
them all. Thus Varsity could take all
their remaining games and still lose
out if the Empires won eight of their
remaining nine,
It all add.s up to the obvious fact
that a win next Saturday would come
in very handy for cither club, and
a bitterly contested struggle would
seem  to be  in order.
Game time at Powell grounds is
2; 30.

Swimming Stars
Compete Saturday
Swimming will dominate the UBC
sportfront this Saturday with the
swim team down at Portland trying
for conference honours, and the Intramural Swim Meet being held this
Saturday  at  Crystal  Pool.
Eliminations were completed last
night for the forthcoming Intramural
Swim Meet which will decide who
will cop the bauble now held by the
Jokers.
Spectators will see the swimming enthusiasts fight over the following
events: 50 yard backstroke, breastroke,
and freestyle; 75 yard one man medley,
100 yard free style. 200 yard 4 man
relay,  and  150 yard  3  man medley.
Besides the diving competitions
there will be a game of water polo,
which will feature thc up to now
undefeated Jokers, and clown acts.
A big crowd is expected so come
down and see the fun. Tickets will be
25c per person. Don't forget this
SATURDAY is the Big Intramural
Swira Meet.
ference appearance won the championship for the only Conference title
taken by UBC that year.
Led by record breakers, Ez Henni-
ger and John Pavelich, the Birds piled
up five firsts, one second and two
thirds to amass their score to a
Conference win.
UBC took an early lead when the
flying feet of Pat Minchin and Ez
Hennigcr pounded out victories in the
mile and 440 yards. CPS overhauled
the Birds despite a tie in the high
jump by Dave Blair at 5 foot 11
inches. They kept, on the heels of
the Loggers with a second place in
the half mile by Al Bain and an
outstanding performance in the field
events by Pavelich who won the shot
put and came third in thc javelin and
discus.
Needing a win in the mile relay
the Birds saved Ken McPherson by-
pull ing him out of the two mile for
the second leg of the relay. The
quartette of "Chick" Turner, Ken
McPherson, Al Bain and Ez Henniger
breezed through with the vital point
while CPS failed to score. The
Logger threat was rolled back and
the Thunderbirds took their first
track championship without the services of their ace distance runner,
Bob Piercy.
Piercy was sidelined with a sore
leg and unable to compete in thc
slow 10 minute 39.1 second two mile.
Last fall he jogged the two miles in
running shoes in 9 minutes 53.3 seconds to show what he could have
done.
Ez Henniger blazed through the
quarter mile for a new record of
49.9 seconds which is also the fastest
time turned in last summer by a
quarter miler in Western Canada.
John "Tarzen" Pavelich put the shot
45 feet l:j> inches to break the record
by half an inch, Pavelich will be
remembered as the senior boys' champion in Vancouver Inter-High Track
Meet   in  1945.
Dave Blair tied with Wayne Mann
of CPS in the High jump at 5 foot
11 inches to score badly needed point,
and narrowly missed setting a new
record of 6 foot 2 inches in his last
attempt.
Tlie half mile was a close race all
the way and Ellmers of Lewis and
Clark nosed out Al Bain in a photo
finish.
TENNIS TEAM TRYOUT
All those interested in trying out
for the men's tennis team are asked
to attend an important meeting on
Thursday at 12:30 in Arts 106. Tlie
tournament schedule and other matters pertaining to this year's trip will
be discussed.
The white collar and the sweatshirts are interchangeable in the lives
of well over a hundred Commerce-
men, several of whom have gained
top-ranking status in their respective
fields of sport.
On this basis, it has been suggested
that we construct the "Ideal" Com-
mcrceman—and it seems fitting that,
although a top-notch student, he
should be not a theoretical Morrow-
Bell-Taylor-Wong combination (if
such a combination were conceivable),
but a well-knit figure in athletic garb
who puts practices before lectures,
games and parties before reports and
a spirit and will to win before anything else,
IDEAL MAN
First the body: Herb Capozzi's driving football and and basketball logs
should form a solid base; add the
solidarity of Thunderbird rugger
skipper Morris' torso, topped with
gridman Bill Pierson's shoulders, all
with the stability of skier Doug Fraser,
and the thing begins to look formidable. Tacked onto the side we'll have
the long, dependable arms of Bird
basketballer Bob Haas, tapering off
to the sure hands of rugby reliable
Bill Dunbar.
TWO HEADS
And what could be more ideal than
two heads? One head (the one with
Capozzi's well-groomed hair) could
be looking for a man to pass the
basketball to while the other was
watching to receive a pass first.
The guy would be able to give himself pep talks during slumps. One
head would wave the common forefinger in the other's face while the
listening head  nodded  itself.
This arrangement is considered bet- j day evening will continue its hunt for
ter than letting some queer with but' merman kings with the finals at 8:00
THUNDERBIRDS
DROP LAST GAME
IN CONFERENCE
Tlie Pacific Northwest Intcr-Colle-
giate Conference came to a bitter
end for thc Thunderbirds as they
lost to League leading College of
Puget Sound 77-54.
However there are a few bright aspects of the fray in Tacoma. For instance "Long John" Forsythe came
into his own as he led the 'Birds'
scoring with n creditable 13 points.
Pat McGeer and Hairy Kermode, play-
ng their last Conference game tallied
12 and 9 points respectively to wind
up sensational Conference careers.
For only a few brief minutes in thc
(list quarter the Canadians managed
to hold the Loggers, then thc change
came. CPS skipped ahead of the Birds
and were never in serious trouble
from then on.
'Mural Athletics
In Full-Swing
The Men's Inrramural set-up on the
campus is starting to move into high
gear with touch rugby and basketball
in full swing, a swimming meet currently splashing its way to completion,
a badminton tournament and a boxing
and wrestling meet slated, and a
myriad of other plans in the embryo
stage,
The shuttlemen, originally oet to
stage their playoffs last Tuesday, will
commence their work at 7:00 tomorrow night.
The swimming meet which managed a nuber of eliminations on Mon-
a single skull—such as Whittle, Osborne, Laithewaite or Kabat—do the
pepping up, for there is always the
chance that Ideal Commerceman
might be an independent cuss and
just let the coach's remarks go in
one ear and out the other and in the
other and out the other. And he will
not get flushed cheeks should the
crowd ride him a little—no four-
flusher he.
As to the internal character of Mr.
Morroney—an ill-conceived title but
one which will suffice for our needs
here there is a wealth of talent in
Commerce from which to form a personality.
PERSONALITY PLUS

abilities and popularity of newly-
elected MAD president, Bud Speirs
and soccer manager and CUS president Bob Wilson, the enthusiasm of

and leadership qualities of Chief's
captain Fred Bossons and Thunderbird co-captain Bob Haas should comprise a pretty firm constitution.
With such a makeup, Morroney will
be a social leader and ideal party
man and still be able to keep in
shape. He can toss back twice as
many drinks as anyone else and it
is conceivable that one head could be
sick while the other continued to have
a helluva good time—but two hangovers !
He will be a member of the Tappa
jKeg Fraternity.
SMART TOO
On the scholastic side, Ideal Commerceman will have no trouble. In
Marketing or Industrial Management,
the head that has read the case can
whisper the answer to the one that
hasn't. Every tried and true Commerceman knows that exams are
easier with another head to talk to
during the monotony of a three-hour
stint.
The fellow can discuss report cases
with himself and can really light
into   the   marker   with   both   mouths
when the reports
a mere 'S" on it
few   facetious   re-
going full bore
come back with
together with a
marks.
Thus we have the Ideal Commerce-
man—athletic Superman, academic
genius—and gen party type. We'll
match him with anything any other
faculty—including the Phys Ed Majors
—can put up.
VOC   MEETING
A meeting of the VOC will be held
today (Thursday) at 12:30 in Ap Sc
201, Plans for tlie Spring party and
the party draw will be discussed,
Saturday night in the Crystal Pool.
The big boxing and wrestling Meet
is all set for Friday, March 19 in
UBC gym. Potential candidates have
been working out furiously down at
the stadium gym for quite some time
and all indications point to one of the
most successful affairs yet. Last year's
meet was a sell-out attraction, but
intramural officials are convinced that
this meet will eclipse it on all counts
by quite a margin. Tickets arc on
sale immediately and can be obtained
from Intra-Mural Reps or at the
office  in the gym.
OPEN LETTEF
To  Hal  Murphy
In answer to your "Open Letter" in
Wednesday's   paper,   which   read   (in
part),   'To   the   band   and   the   cheerleaders: Oh where, oh where can you
be?" here is your answer.
Wo don't know about  the band.
We're sick in bed with flu:
(Saturday's rain, you know*
But   we   were   out   to   the   weekend
games—
Whatsa matter,  weren't  you'.'
The   Cheerleaders
(per   Deni   Pierce)
