Brock Hall Officials Start
Friendly 'Clean-Up7 Campaign
New Medical School
Will Offer Several
Different Courses
Uncooperative Students Will Lose
AMS Cords Announces Bradshaw
Bill Bradshaw, new proctor of Brock Hall is girding himself
for a friendly clean-up of careless student habits in the Brock.

Minor course changes will be
the main difference in premedical study when UBC's
medical school opens on September 5, 1950.
Most important change in the preliminary studys will be the addition
of Embrology—Zoology 304—instead
of taking the course in first year
These; changes were announced
Tuesday night by Dr. Myron Weaver,
Dean of UBC's new faculty of medicine. He was speaking to a special
meeting of pre-medical students.
New Dean is in the process of ar-
staff for the school and arranging for
screening of students.
Medical School year will be 32
weeks long—starting in first week in
September and going through to May.
"Students who hope to be admitted
to the first year of the faculty must
apply before January and must take
the medical school admission tests,"
said ,Dr. Weaver.
Information about the medical tests
must be obtained from Dr. Black in
the counselling bureau today.
Dr. Weaver also told the students
that there would be no quota for students from out of the province. They
will be admitted on the same scale as
local students. "Local students will
still   be  given   preference,"   he  said.
First class in the school will be
corrlposed of sixty students. No student with lower than a high second
class will be admitted.

to enforce rules nicely. If a student
is uncooperative his card will be
taken and turned over to USC."
Bill has a lot of complaints to make.
First is the practice by certain students of eating their lunches in the
lounge, Mildred Brock Room and the
Men's Club Room. This, he points out,
is quite definitely against AMS rules,
E'y "lunches" he means such things
as Cokes, ice cream cones and chocolate bars as well.
Reason for the rule is that students
have a habit of dropping the food on
the upholstery and the floor.
Food also attracts mice and rats.
Many mice nests have been found in

Two other complaints high on Bill's
list are the habits of bringing wet
top-coats into the lounges and the
practice of shaking faulty fountain
pens, spraying ink in the floor and
He points out that one set of chesterfields that had been recovered
during the summer is already filthy.
This he attributes to wet coats, ink
spots and food spots.
Bill is a short, friendly fellow who
doesn't look like he could get really
mad at anybody. And he says he
doesn't intend to, ■»
"I am willing to help students with
any problems that I can. I intend to be
nice about enforcing rules. I will only

"I have been made responsible for
the condition of the Brock, and I have
to keep my job."
He says that discipline committee
will have to take measures with anyone that he turns in for disobeying
rules, under orders from the administration.
President of Undergraduate .Societies
Committee, Bill Haggart, said Thursday that Discipline Committee does
not intend to get officious about Brock
"There is a feeling around that the
committee consists of a bunch of boys
in grey shirts and arm bands who
run around tapping people on the
shoulder, saying naughty-naughty."
"We don't intend to be dramatic
about this thing."

Directorate May
Revise Intramurals
A decision which may change
system of Intramural sports
will be made Friday at a Women's Athletic Directorate meeting. If faculty agrees, system
will operate on a basis which
will include clubs, sororities or
self-formed groups.
Athletic Directorate has developed
a new schedule of intramurals. Dean
Mawdsley is opposed to the plan on
the basis that it is against campus
policy to include sororities in the
small scope of intramurals.
An important question last year
concerned a union of WAD and WUS
giving a compact women's directory
rather than a number of solitary organizations. Final decision was to
keep groups singular but to change
the sports system.
Anxiety arises from the point system which has been in practice for
several years on an inter-faculty
principle. This meant thai sports teams
were picked from a faculty of hundreds of students, and because there
had been no former friendship between the players, there was not the
same amount of spirit as is necessary
to keep intramurals in good form.
Plan now being introduced would
mean that any group could enter
teams in the various sports tournaments even if group was formed solely for that purpose.
Pan Hell, which is constituted of
two members from each sorority, will
put the problem before each sorority group to have project approved.
However, if opinion is not affirmative
and the remainder of women students
wish to accept the plan, decision will
be left to Faculty Council of Students Affairs,    •
Matter will be completely cleared
at Friday's meeting of WAD.

farmers, becoming undemocratic, and that democratic socialism

IS a
ary Forum meeting yesterday
Speaking in support of the motion,
"Resolved that there is no place in
the Canadian political scene for the
CCF," he said, "the CCF would have
accomplished more if, at its foundation, it had remained the radical
wing of the Liberal Party."
At the present time, there is a
policy of despair, and, at most, (hey
hope only to become the opposition.
They are waiting for a depression."
He further noted that there was a
revolutionary trend, and a policy of
the leaders to "make the party more
Opposing the motion, Rod Young,
former CCF candidate for Vancouver
Centre, said there was room in Canada for a movement such as the CCF.
"It is the only truly democratic move,
ment," he said.
According to Young, the "death of
the Liberal party .will be caused by
its misunderstanding of the capitalistic system which is plagued by
cyclical depressions. "If we continue
under capitalism, depressions will
return," he said. "The Liberals will
not stop it.'
He further maintained that the old
line parties were "playing the game
of promising the most" to gain support of the people.
Lanskail said that socialism could
only be implemented by a Marxian
party. ''Democratic Socialism," he
.said, "is a lot of bunk." He thought
that Canadian politics would be stabilized if it returned to the two party
In reply, Young said that I'hs socialist movement is a "bulwark  against
In his opening remark =:, Lanskail
said that the trend in the last election
had been away from the CCF and
toward the Liberal party, and that
CCF party leaders were "no*, permitting tolerance and freedom of thought."
He cited the policy on the Atlantic
Pact, where the minority was contradicted, as an example,
He admitted, however, that the
socialists had made the Liberals move
taster, but would have done more if
its members had remained the radical
wing of the Liberal party. "It weakened the two party system which is the
only  truly democratic system.'"

We Are A Non-Entity
The familiar cartoon picture of Canada
as> an overgrown and ungainly boy scout in
short pants apparently sums up outside
world's opinion of us.
Jphn Fisher, the CBC's roving reporter,
told litis Tuesday that we ought to take some
steps to change this picture.
Vipiortunately, Mr. Fisher had no suggestions as to the means at our disposal or
the course of action necessary to make
Canada look grown up.
Of course there is some question as to
whether or not Canada really is grown up.
Presumably Mr. Fisher used culture in
the lay sense and not in the sense meant by
Sociologists and Anthropologists, If so, we
may assume that we are to be judged by
our pontribution to the arts and sciences.
' &jf contribution to the physical sciences
had Bgen in many ways spectacular and we
have|*ireceived international recognition for
our ^contributions to fields as diverse as
nuclilkt physics and medicine. But our contribution to the arts has been, to say the
least, obscure  and our contribution  to  the
social sciences and philosophy has been negligible. It may be assumed, therefore, that
the outside world has some justification for
regarding us as a non-entity,'
No amount of the "horn-blowing" suggested by Mr. Fisher will remedy the situation, The roots of the problem are much
more obscure.
Probably the truth of the matter lies
in the second rate job our universities are
doing. We are a young country and, perhaps
naturally, we tend to concentrate our educational facilities on those fields which appear
likely to yield immediate and concrete results. The physical sciences and engineering
thus form the bulk of our educational institutions,
But the physical sciences can provide
only means to an end, and very limited
means at that. Without the social sciences
to supplement them, the physical sciences
cannot even provide adequate means to our
ends. The ends themselves must be provided
by our literature and our philosophy.
If, then, we want to become mature we
had better reform our universities.
'The Responsible Press'
Vancouver's downtown morning newspaper, The News-Herald, yesterday carried,
in headlines, tho fact that Student Council
had "slapped a ban" on the speech of Dr.
James Endicott.
Nothing could be farther from the truth.
Dr. Endicott was refused permission to
speak because he was sponsored by an
organization which did not come under the
Literary and Scientific Executive of UBC,
According to the AMS constitution, all campus speakers must be sponsored by a campus
But the so-called "responsible press,''
eager for headlines took the opportunity to
make a mountain out of a molehill.
All that wa.s necessary  for Dr. Endicott
to obtain permission to speak was to have
hi.s talk sponsored by a campus club.
Such a sponsorship was arranged less
than 24 hours later by AMS President Jim
Sutherland. The International Students Club
will sponsor Dr, Endicott.
Persons and organizations eager to pounce
on political discrimination have naturally put
the university in their bad books because
such a story was published.
It is items such as these that give the
liberal name of UBC a bad name across
The newspaper could, by simply reaching for a phone, have checked the facts of the
.story and got it straight. The correct facts
aro the criterion of newspapers.
Come on Mr. Drury, get responsible.

New Type Of Jam Is Problem
And Eater Is Stuck With It
The ^President,
Swdettooth Jam Co.
Dea| Sir:
;|Ve wish to say that we are not altogether
pleaied with the can of your cherry jam we
bought last week.
Please don't misunderstand us. Your
jam certainly has everything your advertisements say it has. What bothers us is that
extra something which your ads never mention;
IpVe refer to all those cherry stones which
you saw fit to include in our can of jam.
iWe must admit we find the stones just
as esasy to digest as the jam itself, but they
malfce very bumpy sandwiches. So if it is all
the same to you, we would rather vou left
them out of our next can of jam.
gWe know how unselfish you are, putting
chefjry pits in your jam. You no doubt realize
that'most of your customers will run out into
their back yards and plant the pils, and in
ten'or 20 years will be growing their own
jam right on  the trees.
■jBut our own personal situation is different.. We live in a basement room and il may
be ten or 20 years belore we even find a
houke with a back yard to run out inlo.
Our objection may seem silly to you,
but personally wc sec the whole problem
as one of ethical ion. We suppose if we had
been educated to lhe idea of pils m cherry
jam, we would feel robbed if wc found ourselves stuck wilh lhe pilless variety.
Slather than convert all your machinery
back to turning out the old-fashioned type
of jam, why not educate the public lo accept
the new kind? Why not be the first company
to crusade in this exciting new field of advertising?
In order to get your pit-in-the-jam campaign off lo a runny start, we have written a
few slogans:
"The Jam with The Stone is a.s near as your
phone." Or. "If you're eating a jam
That's not worth a damn,
Get the one with the pits
And you'll find it's the best."
In tho field of radio you will discover
lhat nobody will listen to your commercial
unless you present it in a form that will
be suitable later on for your listeners to
sing at community gatherings, coming out
parties and church socials.
So, for your stone-filled jam, here is a
singing commercial, set. to the tune of Jingle
I'(dis: $
"Swoettoolh Jam, Sv/oottooth Jam,
In sandwiches lor lunch
Will make your whole clay brighter
Will change lhat Munch to Crunch."
Your (Sweet) toothless admirer,
I'S: About planting those cherry pils:
'led the man who put them in our jam that
he brol'c siiiiir of them, and we are afraid
li.ey would no| have grown up to be strong,
he.dlby cherry frees even if we had found
space lo plant ihem in our window box.

Eaton's Show For Coeds

PLANTATION PICKANINNIES in the real "Swanee" tradition gather around lovely soloist
Norma Turner to swing it out at'tonight's Showboat cabaret. Sponsored by Kappa Kappa
Gamma and Gamma Phi Beta sororities, the first fall formal of the year starts  .„ 9 p.m.

Marion Lister, Mary Messenger,
Shary Pitts, Alice Pop, Katie Pop,
Marney Sick, Bev Smith.
Look in thc mirror . . . what do you
see? Of course you see YOU. And of
course there is only one YOU in all
this world, so why not make it the
nicest YOU it could possibly be?
Now take another look. First of all
do you see hair that is soft and shining as well as being neatly shaped
and becomingly curled? Then do you
see a skin that is clean and free from
bumps? Now look at the makeup. Is
there a smooth but scarcely noticeable application of powder? Are thc
eyebrows trimmed and free from accumulations of powder dustily settled
The eyes, YOUR eyes, arc they clear
and bright, or are they streaked wilh
red? (to match your lipstick!) Try a
brushing of plain vaseline througl
your eyebrows and lashes and see ho\
your eyes sparkle in appreciation. And
for a special evening try one of the
many soothing eye preparations tha.
are on the market.
Now your lips: Of course it goes
without saying that you no longer
wear any of those black-red lipsticks
that you use a lip brush, that you only
paint your lip.'; in their natural position . . . please no pouts or cupid bows!
NEWS: Lip colors are tending towards the oranges and clear reds
Nail enamels no longer need match
your lips, but should bo in the same
range of iv'l.-. Audi since your red-
are clearer or on the orange .side, your
powder and foundation iif you use it >.
should  also  be  paler,  but  warm.

Braves Dropped Out,
New Hoop Team In
Chiefs Only Senior A Entry;
Frosh Team to Play Inter A
Complete change-over will be made in the Basketball
set-up on the campus thi.s year with only one university entry
in the Senior A Men's League but with a new addition in the
Inter A calibre.
•   >
Thunderbirds remain the same however, still participating in the Evergreen Conference play.
New squad to form this season
will be a Frosh club of official Inter
A si'anding but with the local loop
almost on the verge of breaking up.
Fresh will probably play only against
comparable clubs on the mainland.
Concession has been gained to have
the Frosh club ylay in the Dominion
Inter A finals if it is possible to enter
a team from  the university.
Braves are to be dropped from ihe
local V and D Senior A loop, leaving
UBC Chiefs to carry the burden for
the  campus,
Move is designed to allow talented
frosh to gain valuable experience
against high class competition from
other cities.
Possible games for Frosh wiir be
arranged with Junior Varsity clubs
from member schools in vhe Evergreen Conference as well as teams
from some United States Junior Colleges.
Powell Hiver will be a logical
contestant for the first year squad.
after the good will that was spread
last year when UBC Braves travelled
t'here for an exhibition series.
Frosh team will follow Inter A
regulations, which means that mem ■
bers must be under 20 years of ag°.
Possibly some members of the club

Fifty Trying
For Slot On
'Bird Squad
With American football still
holding the limelight in campus athletic circles, over fifty
aspirants to top UBC basketball teams are turning out to
conditioning practices.
Though the first Thunderbird basketball game is not until early December against the Washington Huskies,
it is none too early for the future
Birds  to  be  gettmg.into shape.
This year head coach of basketball,
Jack Pomfret is going t'o spend the
opening weeks of the training schedule concentrating on physical condition and  not basketball  prowess.
Co-crdination and team play being
large items in the make-up of a good
basketball player, volleyball is being
used as part of the training program,
Though the game may look easy to
the spectator volleyball teaches coordination of jumping to the decent
of a ball, teaches correct and able
use of the fingers and wrisis, and
ilso can be a good conditioning exercise    if   played    properly.

Dick Penn Appointed
To Hoop Coaching Staff
Newcomer to UBC basketball coaching staff this year will
be Dick Penn, whose appointment became official at last Wednesday's meeting of the MAD.f"
Penn, although a novice to the
coaching ranks is well known on the
campus as manager of the "Thunderbirds" and as an intramural organizer.
Oldtimers Jack Pomfret, coach of
last year's "Thunderbirds" and Ole
Bakken of Senior A "Braves" last
season will be out again.
Doug Whittle, Chiefs coach last year
will be unable) to continue this
year because of other athletic duties,
having the swim team to worry about
as well as heavy office work,
Teams this year will be the Thunderbirds who although they have lost
seme of last year's talent have every
promise of being an all-star team.
"Chiefs" who will play Senior "A"
and a Frosh team which is classed
as inter "A" calibre.
The assistant coaches have not as
yet been assigned their duties, but
Pomfret will again coach the Thunderbirds with either Penn or Bakken
as his assistant.
Still not' official, but Thunderbird
grid end coach Hjelmar "Jelly" Anderson may yet handle one of the
hoop teams if he is not too hard
pressed with work between his classes
and  football.
Little News From Oregon;
Got Good Heavy Ball Club
Information is slowly leaking out from Eastern Oregon
College of Education about their football team.
Word has reached this university
that the Oregonians use a highly
impressive T formation on their offense. With third year letterman Fer-
nan Warnock handling the ball from
quarterback slot and flinging the
passes,   the   team   can   be   dangerous
io UBC.
Coach Bob Quinn, together with his
two able assistants Bob Oestcle, and
Hijllis Fait, have collected together a
f; ia-sized squad of linemen to oppose
thc  'Bird  stalwarts.
Four ends all over si1; f<."' tall
will give UBC something to think
about when they organize their pass
defense. A few of Warnock*'s accurate
forward flings could put Oregon well
his phone number and  address with '' on their way to a victory.
Ole   Bakken   at  Graduate   Manager's
tf tf tf
Cheerleaders wanted. Will those interested in cheerleading please meet
Tuesday, October 11 at 12:30 in front
of the Brock Hall.
tf tf tf
Senior rugger manager thi.s year will
be Mike Hammersly, who handled
assistant manager's position last season.
Roy North will help out Hammersly
as assistant manager for the remainder of the year.
Average weight of Eastern Oregon's
line is about 185 pounds, but with
two or three of their big men in the
line at the same time, Thunderbirds
will have to have a strong offense,
or a mighty deceptive; offensive to
crack   the  opposing  forward   wall.
The back field is not of small size
cither. Third year fullback Bob Terry
weighs in at 198 pounds spread thickly
over a  5  [cot  8   inch  frame.
Other fullback is Everett Chrusos-
kie,  a  six  footer  who  tips  thc scales
at   195. The   rest   of   the   backs   are
around 170,  but  what   they  lrfck   in |
weight, they make up for in experience.
One and only press release from
the U.S. team designates their probable starting lineup which is a fair
one to open up the game with.
Warncck handles the ball at quarter, Harry Winston and Jim McAlis-
tcr manning the halfs and Bjb Terry
in full back  position.
Ends Jerry Sherwood (162 pjunds)
and Herman Lawson (165 pounds)
hold the line together. Tackles Phil
Ward (195) and Henry Sherman (193),
Guards Jim Bailey (171) and Dona
Walclem (170), with Ester Will'ong
(173)   holding down the cenf>'e spot.
On the UBC side of the picture,
Coach Orville Burke has instituted
some new pass plays in a bid to
strengthen   the   'Birds   offense.
Tackling promises to be much improved over the kind that was featured in UBC's first home game in
the  Stadium  last September 24.
In all, Thunderbirds have vastly
improved over their previous performances and with a break from
the weatherman, tomorrow's contest
should be a sight to watch.

A life insurance policy is
recognized by business men as a
most valuable asset because besides
the protection it gives, it has
borrowing value in case of need.
There are many times in which the
loan value of a policy may prove
of great use.
The important point is to get started
with your insurance programme
at the earliest possible date.
Life insurance rates are determined
by the age of the person to be insured
... the sooner you take out a
policy the lower its premium will be.
Your Mutual Life of Canada

you. Take him into your confidence.
Explain to him your needs and
your circumstances. He has been

insurance to each person's particular
needs. Take advantage of his expert
