Totem Pep Meet Thursday
Poulcats, Singers
To Assist Contest
•    ALL STOPS ARE OUT for the Totem Pep Meet.
The day: Thursday; the time: noon hour; the band: Sid
No use being cryptic—its the biggest rally to hit the
campus since Mart Kenney came out three years ago.
Your AU-Amerlcan Totem, picked by candid, skilled
observers as the best yearbook produced at a Canadian University, is all set to show the students just what can be done
with University talent.
Too   often,   the   Totem  feels,  is        ____________________-_-_-------■--_---■-
emphasis placed on off-the-cam-
pua entertainment. Too little attention la paid to campus talent,
juat as too little attention ls paid
to student effort, such aa the Tat-
Thus, Thursday's pep meet.
Coincident with thia pep meet,
the Totem Is staging K sales slogan contest. Aa In, farmer years, a
free copy of the 1942 Totem wtll be
offered to the student, dr club,
entering a winning slogan.
The deadline for the contest **
aat at Wednesday- neon, aad the
winner wtll be announoed at the
pep meet.
Along With the Varaity orchestra, the staff Is lining up the
band's charming vocalists, Connie Dier»cn and Jean Foulkard,
and Is angling for the services of
the mystery trio who recently
sang with  Dal  Richards.
In line with the policy of playing
up University talent, plans are
alao being made to introduce to
the students their own 1942 basketball  team.
Last year's hoop squad, which
won the Dominion championship,
has been shorn of many familiar
faces — the team that played last
Saturday   were  strangers   to  most.
The Totem plans to introduce
you  to  your team.
The Totem also plans to introduce   you   to   your   yearbook.
And incidentally, without being
in the least subtle, the Totem
hopes to sell you a copy of this
year's book.
Thursday, then, Is Totem Pep
Meet Day, Wednesday ls Totem
Slogan Day. Any day Is Totem
Day—you can buy one In the Pub.

Incidentally som-' discussion on
social problems ma-ked the week
end camp of the Social Problems
Club. The camp, overlooking the
waters of Horseshoe Bay, was
visited by twenty-five club members.
Students arrived at different
times during the afternoon and
night of Saturday. After supper
clubbers threw themselves into a
wild dance; at midnight, all -were
forced to retire to hastily-constructed  beds.
Real purpose of the camp came
to the fore when a discussion of
current problems tok place. Under
the chairmanship of Frank Bertram four members outlined problems. Archie Bain talked on "Events leading to the War," Harold
Burks on "The Position of Canada
in the War," Elspeth Munroe on
"Soviet Union" and Gordon Bertram on "Post War Reconstruction."
The whole group took part in
these discussions and many
brought forward problems of their
own. Work was resumed after
For twenty-flve years now the
pub has convincingly trounced the
dirty nine. Last year Jack Margeson lead the fourth estate to a
29-12 victory, a tremendous triumph when you consider that the
pub team was only on the floor
for one period. They retired from
the game when lt became evident
that the puny councillors were
faced with a terrible white-washing.
The council, with the aid of atep
ladders and janitors were able to
amass only 12 points in the remaining   three   periods.
This year the pub chief, Archie
Paton, predicts another great victory for tlie pub.

Mayhew Essay
Prize Contest
Held Nov, 8
• ATTENTION   is   called   to   the
Mayhew  Prize Essay Contest. The
subject of the essay will be POST
CANADA. Contestants will write
their essays under examination
conditions on Saturday, November 8. All those intending to enter
this contest should leave their
names ln the Registrar's Office not
later than Thursday, November 6.
Mr. McKlm was appointed to
the position by last year'a Council after Sutherland Home had retired from the offloe last February.
Since that time Council haa
noted that affairs ln the A.M.S.
office have not been running aa
smoothly as in previous years. The
trouble was brought to a head
last week when Miss Hilda Fox,
A.M.S. secretary since 1936, resigned to take a position with n
shipping firm downtown. Investigation showed that the co-operation vital to the smoo^l functioning of the office was lacking.
Council today inserted an advertisement ln downtown papers asking for applications fr the vacated
position. There ls a atrong possibility that S. Home, who la at
present living in Vancouver, wtll
answer the application, although
no confirmation of thla was immediately available.
Council Statement
After studying conditions in the
Alma Mater Society office, the
Council haa decided that aome reorganisation la definitely necessary.
For aome time now, the efficiency and co-operation Which Is so

Of "All I Do ls Dream"

student is going to have the thrill of hearing her first
published composition played over CBR.
The  student,   Dorothy Hamilton, ____________-_______-___-------_---■--_•
ls well known to many of tho stu-

composition, Dorothy said thot she
has been composing since the age
of twelve, but had never bothered
to write any of her tunes down,
being content to store them in her
head. However, some friends
heard this last one and urged her
to write it down. Phyliss Dilworth,
niece of our former English professor,  and a former  Varsity stu
dent, composed words for the
piece and together they called It
"All  I  Do Is Dream."
"It wa3 a great surprise to me,"
recalls Dorothy, "when I heard
that arrangements had been made
to   broadcast  It."

A Prodigal Returns
(EDITOR'S NOTE: Ws take great pleasure today In presenting an editorial by ope
who used to grace these columns every issue
two years back. He Is none other than John
Oarrett- now Second-Lieutenant Oarrett of
the P.P.C.L.I., who was ths "great god" of
tits Pub during the 1630-40 term.
He Is renewing acquaintances en the
campua thla week prior to leaving tor
his unit In the East.)
Oueat editorials are rather Uke after
dinner speeches but the unfortunate part
about them ls they are not preceded by a
reasonably satisfying repast. After all, one
can always produce an appropriate remark
or so, provided that the dinner haa been of
an inspirational or, at the very least, of a
stimur-Sing character! In consequence, I
commence these few lines with no adequate
fortification, either material or spiritual/and
my one sincere hope is that some will voluntarily read to the end, rather than doing so
from an exaggerated sense of duty.
To exclaim at the outset that everything
appears to have changed slnoe I last was
here would be sacrlllgeous falsification of
the true state of affairs; ih faot, I personally
detest 'alums' who delight in auoh misrepresentation of the facta. Those features of
our Csmpus which hsvs remained upper*
most in my mind during the psat ysar ahd
a half have not bean buried by the dust of
eighteen months- and I do not feel lilts aft
outsider, nor an old man!
My feelings, on the contrary, ware mors
like an offspring returning to roost. Without becoming submerged in sentimentality,
I might Mention that the sight of the Cam
pus in Autumn raiment, harassed students
changing lecture rooms, of the Caf with
wire chairs and coffee tipplers, of the gracious Brock Hall Lounge and of the seething
Publications Office filled me with slightly
nostalgic ecstasy.
But let it not be judged from the fort-
going that I failed to notloe an embryonic
structure on our, parking lot of 'old' or that
I accepted the new 'professionalism' in student administration with but- a shrug of my
shoulders. I offer congratulations to those
responsible for each of the 'innovations'—
if a building oan bs so termed!
It is now quite apparent that I have
written enough if not too muoh, and I intend without more ado to conclude, but, aa
is well known, leave-taking oan be extraordinarily difficult. To close with apt quotations from the literary masters is formality
itself, and merely to cease writing is 'poor
composition'. There ls but one alternative
and that, I think, to wish all the vary best
of luck as we each proceed along our respective paths.
And one more word . . . never forget to
blow about the University of B.C.
Irrespective of what locality you may

'In life' I have repeatedly run •aoroas the

University life and Campus memories

merrily by, constantly nourishing the desire
to return to books and faces left behind.
The Mummery   -^ j**..
e I HAD ALWAYS thought of the Library
as a sort of sanctuary, a place to win
friends and infuriate librarians. If you were
in a whimsical mood, you could even try to
study there.
The other day, however, it was the
scene for the first of a series of ugly episodes
that reduced me to slinking furtively about
the campus like a refugee from a Vancouver
Liberal Committee.
I was no sooner through the revolving
doors than I had a feeling that all was not
right. Then, peering into the semi-gloom, I
made out a figure standing grimly at the
bottom of the left stair-case. It was a woman.
She had a tin-can in her hand, and a belligerent glint in her eye. Instinctively I felt
that here was an enemy.
So, humming quietly as I admired my
fingernails, I sidled over towards the other
stairs. For a moment I thought I was going
to make it, but then I heard that deadly
rattle behind me, and the next instant she
was blocking my path, with her chin stuck
out about an inch from my eyes (she was
bigger than I).
"Self-denial!" she barked, shoving the
can into my stomach.
"I've already denied myself in four different buildings!" I protested, backing away.
"Well, deny yourself here," she snapped
sarcastically, "and make it a nickel even."
I didn't like the way her right hand
bulged in her coat pocket, and I had a quick
vision of sinking to the floor, riddled with
lead. I fumbled nervously with my purse,
mentally judging my chances of making a
dash for it.
"Take your time, playboy," snarled the
fiend. "We wouldn't want you to do anything you might regret."
Taking a deep breath, I babbled:
"I have some tokens here if you would
care to take them down to the Foreign Exchange Board ..."
She shook her head slowly, from side to
side, at the same time rattling the tin, to
give the effect of a copperhead about to
"If you've got any Roman money in
there, you can forget about that, too," she
I finally found a coin and dropped it
into the can with a cheap chink.
"You'd better go and rest somewhere
now," advised the extortionist, and, catching
me by the arm, added in a hoarse whisper:
"Promise you won't write Ilsley about this?"
I was still fuming when I went down
to the Caf for lunch, only to be stopped at
the door by another female, every bit as
rugged and uninhibited as the first.
"I want your blood," she stated quite
"You must be thinking of three other
chaps," I laughed. "I've never even seen
you before."
"Oh there's nothing personal in it," she
"Theres nothing personal in YOU wanting MY blood?" I demanded incredulously.
"Sister, I'd hate to see you get intimate!"
I tried to get through the door again,
but a beefy arm shot out to catch me just
under the Adam's apple.
"The Red Cross needs your blood —
now," insisted this vampire in ankle sox.
"Shall I pull into a pit, or will you drain
me here?" I roared furiously.
"What's your name, please?" she enquired calmly. "I'll put you down for a pint."
"A pint!" I  screeched.   "Why  I've  got
red  corpuscles that have  never even seen
other   red   corpuscles!   I've   got   veins   I've
never even used.   I have to give two weeks'
notice before I can blush! My hemoglobin . .
"Name, please?"
"Look, sister," I pleaded softly, "I don't
want to set the world on fire, all I want is
a piece of pie and a cup of coffee. Surely
that's not too much to ask?"
There was a low, ominous murmur behind me, and I realized that a crowd had
gathered. There were cries of "Gwan, give
her your blood!", and I thought I heard
somebody mention lynching, or it might have
been leeching.
Faced with the prospect of losing my
blood the hard way, I was now obliged to
beat a hasty retreat, pushing out through
a hostile mob, and even in the quad I had
a feeling people were pointing at me and
"He's the guy who wouldn't give his
blood.   Let's hiss!"
I've been eating my lunch in the U.B.C.
Forest lately.   Me and the other rats.

On TKe
It is always dangerous to write
a column about fraternities because
the Greeks are a touchy bunch
who are so used to having cracks
hurled at them that when anybody
writes anything at all about them
they think he ls being nasty.
Two Types
This is a column about two types
of people:
S 1. The guy who goes to Varsity
for a couple of years or more,
pans fraternities right and left,
then suddenly gets rushed by one,
joins lt, and becomes a dyed-in-
the-wool fraternity man.
S 2. The guy who gets rushed by
a fraternity, joins it, then goes
around telling non-Greeks how
lousy fraternities are.
I have met both these types and
I classify them under the general
title of Hypocrite.
Specimen No. 1 only kicked a-
bout fraternities ln hla pre-Oreek
yeara because he wasn't ln one
himself. It was a case of sour
grapes and once he had the little
gold badge firmly embedded on
hla vest (or his girl friend's) he
became strictly a clam as far aa
the antl-frat feeling Is concerned.
Specimen No. 2 felt he has to be
a jolly good fellow with the boys
who hated fraternities so in their
company he became a fraternity
hater too. He was something of
a hero—the black sheep of the
Slgna Fi Foo's for example.
On The Outside
Well, you meet these fellows on
the   Outside,   too.
Here's a rabid Socialist who hates
the Capitalistic System with a
burning hate. He has no dough,
this socialist, and he spends most
of his time In stuffy Uttle halls
yelling about Big Business or in
an equally stuffy Uttle attic writing left-wing  pamphlets.
One day this miniature Trotsky
tears off a 300 page novel—all about
tho Little Guy getting stepped on
by the Big Guy—full of the sordid details that the public eats up.
Before he knows It, our seedy
friend Is rolling In royalties and
being feted aa the Find of the
Literary Year. Presto! Desperate

•    AFTER DROPPING their first game of the season last
Saturday night, 47-35 to a powerful Shore's team, Varsity's national cage champs tackle Staeys Wednesday night
for the first game on the campus.
In the game Saturday night, Shores took the lead from
the opening whistle and were never headed, in fact they
maintained a Comfortable margin throughout the game except in the third quarter when the Blue and Gold came
within four points.
In spite of the bad showing
made by Varaity in their opening
contest, it was quite obvious to an
observer that one of their real
faults waa lack of practice.
Harry Franklin showed up aa
the best student player on the
floor, potting a total of 7 pointa
to make him second high Varaity
man for the evening. Barton waa
tops  with  10.
The game started fast with Shores
taking an 8-polnt lead before Varsity countered. At quarter time
the Birds were oa the short end of
a 14-1 count and llkewiae at the
half -S-18.
Art Johnaon ecored hla flrat baaket Just after the half but Joe
Roaa aoon got lt back. Joe Ryan
then potted two free ahots and
field baskets by Art Barton and
Sandy Hay brought the Thunder
birds up to 30-26. The game picked up a bit and Varsity was making a definite bid to tie the acore.
In the last quarter the greater
experience ot the Shores team
told aa they again drew away
from the Blue and Gold winding
up with a IS point lead of 47-38.
Harry Kermode waa the only
player aent off on personals, leaving the floor in the fourth quarter.
Tne lack ot height waa another
pronounced mark that went a-
galnat the Birds. With Kermode
and Hay the only two over alx
feet, the atudenta were missing a
lot of rebounds that went to aome
of tha Shore giants.

For Men Only
VUet Is busier than a Stanley
Park squirrel In November, but
take It from us, mentor Maury Is
all smiles over this week's happenings.
A little footbaU, some basketball,
oh yes, not to mention army physical and regular athletic programmes have kept him hustling every
minute, but In-between-tlmes
Maury has been working on his
pet peeve.
"It'a really swell to see thla athletic aouncll functioning once a-
gain. With the turnout for the
past two Wedneaday meetings
nearly 100 per cent, we ought to
start booming now."
Thus, with these words, M. L.
Van Vliet admits his pet to
be intramural sports and announced names of class athletic reps in
all faculties.
They- are: Agriculture, Paul
Buck; Anglican, Frank Calder;

e NEXT on the sports front Is a
soccer game. Arts '45 vs. Anglican,   Tuesday   noon   hour.     Play
will comprise two 20 minute halves.
Next  \yeek   a   revised   volleyball
schedule will be released, allowing once defeated teams to stay
in the running for the championship. Van Vllet plans to make It
a double elimination tournament.
Also, next Friday at Stadium
