 GYM MEET IN FRONT OF LIBRARY
RALLY SET FOR
NOON TODAY
TfoeW&m
Vol. XXVIII
VANCOUVER, B.C., TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 12, 1946
No. 45
Frosh Debate
In Arts 100
"LIBERALIZATION of B..C'a
liquor laws" will be the resolution
discussed at the annual frosh debate, scheduled for Arts 100 at
Wednesday noon.
The home team consists of Man-
son Toynbee and Bud Czurevioh
who are upholding the affirmative
while John Young and Ronald
Grant will take the negative.
The same topic will be contested
in Victoria by Marshall Bray and
Fergus McKenzie for UBC and
Alan McFarlane and David Bralde,
Victoria's home team. UBC will
support the negative.
THREE MINUTES
Each speaker will have three
minutes to argue his point with
a three-minute rebuttal.
The debate is being managed by
Alan Roenh, d member of the Parliamentary Forum executive. He
is hoping for the same results as
last year when both UBC teams
were victorious.
The freshman debates have been
an annual activity for several
years, giving the Freshmen an opportunity to prove their oratorical
ubilitics.
Alan Roohr is keeping his fingers crossed in the hope that no
untoward street car strikes croj»
up to present difficulties as was
the c:se last year.
IRC Elects Cole
Executive Prexy
EXECUTIVE members for the
year 1946-47 were elected at a
re-organizational meeting of the
International Relations Club on
Tuesday, February 6.
The newly-elected executive includes: President, King Cole; Vice-
President, Dave Slater; Secretary,
Ann Lew; Treasurer, Muriel Van
de Volk.
Plans for thc coming year include a forum discussion, and
addresses by speakers from the
Canadian Club and Institute of
International Relations.
All students interested in poining
the club are cordially invited to
attend the next meeting at a date
to be announced.
INDICATIVE of the all-out support students are giving to the Memorial Gym campaign
is this caf scene. In acknowledgement of contributions totalling over $1200 at the recent
Joker auction, not one, but three goldfish were swallowed. Stew Maxwell, groping out of
the picture at the left, Joyce Carr, and Bob Ross performed the finny feat., while egg
bespattered Dick Ellis looks on.   Assisting Miss Carr is Danny Kaye, prominent Joker.
THREE CONTESTING
TREASURER'S POST
BEFORE a sparsley-filled auditorium the trio of candidates for AMS treasurer's position headlined the important
points of their platforms at noon Monday.
Chairman Nancy Pitman empha-
PAUL CHUTTER (above) is the
University of B.C. student who
brought tho Goldfish gulping craze
back to the American campus. Hu
is shown hero downing the first
postwar goldfish in North America
during a Jokers Club stunt in tho
cafeteria. After the stunt, the club
rceived letters from International
News Service and from newspaper
readers as far distant as South
Bend, Ind. (NEA photo.)
APPOINTMENTS SHOULD
BE MORE ATTRACTIVE
NEED FOR UNIVERSITIES to make their teaching
appointments more attractive to outstanding engineers
through facilities for research, consultation, practical work,
and particularly increased remuneration was stressed at the
student conference of the Engineering Institute of Canada
held in Montreal, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
UBC delegate to the conference
was Tom Scott, president of the
graduating class and past president of the UBC student branch
of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers.
DISCUSS PROBLEMS
The conference was held in conjunction with the annual meeting
of the Engineering Institute of
Canada. Under the chairmanship
of Mr. J. E, Armstrong, vice-
president of the EIC and chief
engineer for the CPR, the students
discussed many of the important
problems facing the graduating
engineer.
Realizing that engineering students are assailed by doubts as to
the wisdom of their choice in selecting their university and course,
the conference recommended that
the Institute sponsor a critical survey of the engineering colleges in
Canada so students will know how
their course of instruction compares with that offered at other
schools.
GRADUATE SCHOOL
The meeting also urged that the
Dominion government establish a
graduate school of engineering of
the very highest calibre. At tho
present time no other organization
could afford to sponsor such an
undertaking.
Great concern was expressed by
Dr. E. P. Fctherstonhaugh, retiring
president of the Institute, at the
number of graduating students
who leave Canada. He claimed that
even the so-called "backward"
countries of South America are
ahead of Canada ln matters of
municipal development.
Urging careful consideration of
the problem, Dr. Fctherstonhaugh
stated that employers and engineers share with the universities
the responsibility of the future of
the young engineers. In two ot
three years the number of graduating students will be far in ex-'
cess of anything yet experienced,
and they must be absorbed in
Canada into the class of work for
which  they ere trained.
Scott will deliver a full report
of the conference at a special
meeting of the EUS in the near
future.
sized that voting, which will take
place next Thursday, will be preferential. All ballots marked in
any other w;iy will be considered
spoiled. Ticket-casting will be
done in thc quad, or indoors, dc-
pttiding on thc weather.
Fiiot speaker was Art Ryan,
:,( condiiii; John Fleming. He considered Fleming the logical choice
because tho latter has the qualifications and the time to do the
job well. Next ycar Fleming
would be, Ryan said, carrying
only two subjects.
Nucleus of John Fleming's platform was progressive action during thc coming crucial ycar. He
recognized the "powerful position
of treasurer," and promised more
financial support to clubs "Which
have to grow as the enrollment
docs." He had, he felt, the qualifications for treasurer, "complete
knowledge of campus affairs, as
well as technical ability."
Voucher Jack Beveridge who
spoke for Tom Hacket cited his
double qualification of scholastic
and technical ability. Hackett,
would, Bcvridge felt, carry the
responsibilities of treasurer well.
Second nominee Tom Hackctt's
p'.nnk revolved around "budgets
for student activities on a per
capita basis." Under these conditions, thc outstanding matters
were the War Memorial Gym
funds for thc MAD. Ho recognized
the need for "careful financing"
of student activities.
Speaking for Don McRae, Grant
Livingstone stated the former's
experience as treasurer for his
High School, the university branch
of the Canadian Legion, and his
time with the Bank of Commerce.
The coming treasurer would need
experience to take charge of the
largest "normai budget" in UBC
history.
Don McRae consolidated hi*,
platform into asking the Council
FIVE THOUSAND
BY MARDI GRAS
OFFICIAL figures on the financial outcome of the Mardi Gras
will be available soon, according
to AMS treasurer Garry Miller.
Miller stated that a rough estimate of the Mardi Gras financial
set-up indicates a profit of from
five to six thousand dollars.
to investigate business matters, to
giving sound financial administration, and to providing continuity
between treasurer's reports. He
promised to "do his best for tho
.students."
Frat Rush Rules
May Be Altered
POSSIBLE changes in UBC rushing rules will be investigated by
a committee set up by the Interfraternity Council Tuesday.
Rushing systems at other universities will be investigated for
possible adoption by UBC. Each
fraternity will be asked to suggest
changes in the rushing rules for
next year.
BEAUTY   .
ELECTED at the Legion dance
Saturday night, Heather Blundell
will be next Saturday's Bcauty-
on-the-Spot.
Servlccwomcn declined to run,
and so it was decided to choose
tho Beauty -on - the • Spot from
among the co-eds In thc audience.
Heather is a Third Year Arts
student.
Players Club Gets
Space For Scenery
PLAYERS CLUB plans for the
scenery shop are nearing completion.
Blueprints tentatively called for
a building 52 by 54 feet but the
players club has decided 50 by 50
feet would be adequate, at a greatly reduced cost. The Mezzanine
will be U-shaped for storage of
scenery and properties and will
have space for 400 costumes.
The center of the building will
contain a room 30 by 50 feet for
work on scenery. At one end will
be a well six feet deep in which
the sets will be placed for painting.
Plans are being considered to
combine the scenery shop with the
COTC rifle range to reduce expenses for both. Decision on this
question is in the hands of the
student council, the Administration
and the COTC.
MASS RALLY of 7,000 University students intending
to build a $500,000 War Memorial Gymnasium will be held
today in front of the Library. Lectures will not be cancelled
at noon .as previously announced.
'President N. A. M. MacKenzie, Ole Bakken, President
of MAD, and Harry Franklin, Thunderbird basketballer, will
address the mass gathering.
This will be the first mass university congregation since 1923
when students staged a festival of
elation on the Mall in front of
tho Science building.
"All students, large, medium and
small must turn out to this rally,''
insisted Jack Cunningham, social
co-ordinator and member jof the
University War Memorial Gymnasium Committee.
"The success of the Gymnasium
Campaign which puts the motto,
'Tuum Est' up to every undergraduate, depends wholly upon
the turnout today," ho stated.
Student contributions to the
gymnasium fund mounted over the
week-end. Total proceeds up to
Monday noon .were 13,129.
Proceeds from the Saturday
night Legion dance have boosted
the fund by $100 .
An additional $53 was collected
at the dance by junior Heather
Blundell, Legion Dance Queen,
who consented to be kissed by
every man wishing to donate to
the gynmasium fund.
Proceeds of the Badger Brawl,
which takes place Saturday night
in Brock Hall after the Thunder-
bird-Paciflc University basketball
game, will be diverted to the fund.
Tickets will be 11.00 per couple and
will go on sale Wednesday in tho
AMS.
"Musts" for the student canvassers have boon issued from the
office of publicity committee member, Frank Turner.
They are; 1. When people ask
you why tho public must build a
gymnasium iitid not the government, tell them that the government is concentrating upon the
establishment of new faculties
such as law and medicine and
increasing the faculties wc do
hove. $50,000 only out of $5,000,000
lias been allotted to Physical
Education.
2. When people ask you how
much they should contribute to
the fund, toll them to give all they
can spare.    It is a worthy cause.
3. When people ask you if contributions are dcductable from
income tax, tell them yes, and
take a chart with you.
QUEEN TELLS
TALL STORY
A TOTAL of $53 was collected
by Heather Blundell, queen of the
Legion Dance Saturday night. She
pulled it in selling kisses for the
Gymnasium Fund.
She kissed about 20 men. Some
donated 5 dollar bills, some 2's,
some paid without getting a chance
to collect.
Heather's comment: "I'm too tall
for that sort of work."
Meetings of gymnasium committees are as follows: 1. Canvassing
captains will meet Wednesday
noon in Arts 102. 2. Canvassing
teams will met Thursday noon in
tho Double Committee Room in
the south end of Brock Hall.
LSE Hopefuls
Talk Thursday
CANDIDATES for the presidency of the Literary and Scientific executive will address student
voters in the auditorium at noon
Thursday.
This is the first time that LSE
candidates have been required to
make election speeches. Only
members of recognized clubs on
the campus are entitled to vote.
Candidates are being asked to
speak because it is felt that with
the vastly increased enrollment
they will be less well known than
in former years, when only candidates for president and treasurer
made campaign speeches.
Chairman will be Fred Lipsett,
present LSE president. Seconders
of tho various candidates will
also speak.
Local Groups Ask
Model Pre-School
TWO requests for ths establishment of a model pre-school educational centre at the University
of British Columbia have been received by the Board of Governors,
it was stated Friday by President
N. A. M. MacKenzie.
These requests come from the
Welfare Council of Greater Vancouver, and the Ladies' Auxiliary
of the International Woodworkers
of America.
NEED LEADERS
Both requests emphasize the
need for trained leaders and proper facilities for children of preschool years. This need is revealed, it was stated, in the springing
up of numerous play-schools, parent co-operative play-schools, kindergartens, and day nurseries.
These schools do not meet the
necessary requirements because of
the lack of adequate leadership
training, it was felt.
It was requested also that some
means be provided for the training.
of parents in nursery-school education.
The matter is under consideration by the board, the president
stated.
PSYCHIATRIST DISCUSSES
EMOTIONAL IMMATURITY
MALE MEMBERS of the Social Problems Club were
warned Friday by Dr. Elda Lindenfeld, city psychiatrist,
that when they marry they are in danger of being united
with someone who is emotionally stunted.
Referring to Philip Wylie's re
cent "Generation of Vipers," she
declared that the widespread
emotional immaturity of modern
women resulted from their place
in a patriarchial society.
Continuation of a culture in
which "half humanity"—women-
was kept in a subordinate position
was "the easiest way" but entailed
paying a heavy price, the speaker
asserted.
COURAGE NEEDED
Discussing social maturity, she
said courage was needed to apply
the finding of the social sciences.
"Changes in the social structure
would mean some sort of social
revolution," she declared.
Since man's primitive days, she
said, his survival had depended
not on exessive individual competitiveness but on limitation of his
egotistic urges. "The ability of the
Individual to adapt himself to his
community is inherent," she held.
Characteristics of Individual
emotional maturity, Dr. Lindenfeld
said, were: ability to "stick to a
job," capacity to give more than
was expected in return, ability to
risk taking independent action, and
dissatisfaction with social conditions.
"Becoming a social being is the
first step in becoming mature,"
she asserted.
Emotionally mature persons of
different racial origin would find
more in common than persons of
one race who had reached different emotional levels, Dr. Lindefeld
stated.
Declaring that personal and national immaturity had been the
cause of worldwide tragedies, she
urged her audience to avoid making generalizations about races
and nations.

EDITORIAL PAGE
THE ROLE OF RADIO
EDITOR'S NOTE: The following two
editorials are reprinted from the University
of Toronto's "Varsity." It.is felt that they
both have a bearing on conditions at UBC.
This campus can remain mute no longer.
The University of Toronto must receive
voice. ,
It is time to realize that an inevitable
acquisition of this University (the largest,
we must .sheepishly acknowledge, in the
British Empire) will be its own radio
station.
Radio's role today in the science-shrivelled
world in which we live is becoming increasingly important.
A newspaper (yea, two newspapers) can
not suffice to serve a student body so
conscious of radio and its essentially complementary relationship to the press.
Overtures made, in zest of public service,
to this University's students by Toronto's
newest station CHUM provide hope that
Varsity's air-bow may be more than a seemingly stagnant public opinion would have
indicated.
Why this first year of peace has been
allowed to pass without an official proposal
for the University student's organized
participation in local radio is incomprehensible.   While other Canadian campi enthusi
astically watched their radio efforts flourish
unimpededly,, there was stirred to action
only one small, zealous fragment of the
student body.
This group, whose efforts have only within
the past week been given a semblance of
co-ordination, has been unable to read of
the establishment of an intercollegiate
broadcasting network in the United States
without envisioning a similar system's ultimate introduction in this country. This
group has felt severe, though possibly
presumptions, consciencej>angs for the entire
University of Toronto in view of its laggardly
attitude toward radio.
Busily, this group has compiled information from American universities employing
either their own radio station studios or the
facilities of a local station on a regular
broadcast basis.
There seems a strong possibility that with
official sanction, which could scarcely be
lacking, the University of Toronto may in
the not-too-remote future be able to launch
a broadcast series.
Thus could this institution's many radio-
minded begin the process of pressure that
will eventually produce a general recognition
of this inescapable fact: sooner or later
Varsity must have its own radio station.
WHICH PAPER D7A READ?
A poll to establish definitely the extent
of student awareness of current world
happenings would, we feel sure, provide
ghastly results.
It is astonishing to discover by casual
inquiry and more subtle methods the deplorable disregard which certain members
of this (presumably typical) student body
hold for happenings in the contemporary
world as chronicled with varying degrees of
reliability and readability in the daily press.
Somewhat transparent is the popular pose:
top heavy timetables permit no regular
perusal of the daily newspapers.
Despite inadequate and often far from
lucid reports of universal events in the press,
it is not too time-devouring a task to maintain
close surveillance on such remote proceed
ings as the present UNO conference.
Dismayingly true it is that too large a
number of students choose for assorted
reasons to ignore daily developments in any
orbit beyond their own cramped field of
personal experience. There is acquired, if
anything, a haphazardly superficial acquaintance with outer matters.
It is, furthermore, uncanny that more
than a few students of political science and
economy should enjoy this same incongruous
lack of interest and, thus, comprehension
of international affairs.
The student trend to live out of the world
and to refuse to focus attention on today's
news is not, we feel, so wide-spread as to
be a menace.
But it is disturbing and perplexing.
on the wagon
with Don Stainsby
PETRI AND WORLD TRADE
IT'S POSSIBLE that Egon Petri does not
realize that he interfered with international
trade Monday morning.
Queer, but true. It was during an
Economics I lecture that it all happened.
It seems that the joker who was hired to
tune the Auditorium piano could find no
other time to do it.
Even before the lecture began there was
a constant ping-ping-pink from somewhere
backstage. As time went by the plunking
increased in frequency and volume until it
sounded like Gracie Allen was back there
practicing her "Concerto for the Index
Finger."
Only by the aid of the public address
system was Professor Drummond able to
make himself heard. Gradually the Index
Finger Opus came to sound something like
the introduction to Fantasie-Impromptu.
Quipped Porofcssor Drummond: "This is
_ a caso of teaching on extremely diiTicult
subject under extreme difficulties."
The class snickered; there was a fierce
dischord issuing from backstage; the class
began to chatter.
"Don't get excited," soothed the prof. "It
might be just as well to remember that you
may get an examination question on this."
Suddenly the piano became quiet. The
professor slipped through the curtain; there
was a barely audible conversation heard
backstage; the professor returned.
Things were quiet for a few minutes.
Then a terrific clatter came from behind the
curtain. It sounded something like a scream
of horror. This was followed by a clatter
of chains being dropper and dragged.
Once more Professor Drummond dissap-
peared backstage. Once more he returned
to face the class.
"If it Isn't ono thing, it's another," he
said, licking his lips,
Classes In The Aud
This lecture on Economics I was no
oddity. Rather it was a general example
of classes in the Auditorium. An almost
continual clatter backstage, ringing of the
telephone bell, Mummers and Mussocs going
and coming; all provide an incomparable
atmosphere for the large classes who loll,
sleepily, in their seats looking lazily about
for some little thing to provide a break in
the humdrum day.
Often students sit blissfully, through two
morning lectures without moving from their
seats. In the interval between them they
take an opportunity to ignore the "No
Smoking" signs placed on the front walls.
Continual doodling has placed the backs of
Clock Watchers
Another favorite pass-time is watching the on next day
clock. As soon as the students get settled
all eyes turn to wjtch the hand of the clock
as it jumps from one minute to the next.
Comes the time when it hops from 19 minutes
past to 20 minutes past, there is an immediate
snapping of loose-leafs, dropping of pen tops,
and a stir as overcoats are salvaged from
the floor.       '
When the professor finally states: "And
from this very exciting point we shall carry
the seats in a position to compete with the
exam boards.
A general procedure for those taking Ec I,
Psych I, and English II, is to stay in their
seats from 10:30 to 2:30. The attraction
seems to be that the auditorium provides
them seats in which to eat their lunches and
once a week the Film Society gives with a
show.
There have been wagers laid as to how
long the undersized blackboard will withstand the poundings given it by enthusiastic
professors as they try to clarify some point
or other brought up in the lectures. That
wobble in the board should mean something.
, . " the students spring
into action in a mad race to the nearest exit.
An amusing, but nevertheless serious,
happening occurs about this time. The
students who sit nearest to the exit at front-
right naturally dash madly for that particular
door. Every time, every time every doggone
time, they find the outside door locked.
Could be some day they will find it locked
while the Auditorium is burning down.
Worth pondering over?
LETTERS To
The Editor
Let's Study
Dear Madam:
I would appreciate your publishing this beef in the sincere hope
that the guilty ones will take and
carry on as university women and
not as a bunch of frustrated, men-
crazed girls.
I refer to the inexcusable fooling
around in the library, and in particular to the fairer sex on the
campus.
I arrived in the library Saturday
morning shortly after 8:30, found
a nice quiet oorner nnd proceeded
to do .••••ne work. 1 had reached
the*point where I wns wormed up,
(Jan'.' '«•> vages every ten rrini'fs
instead vt enly one pa^e. At 9:55.
along came a body dressed in
skirt and blazer — I gathered — a
ff-male student. Plutut, she laid
down her books, ahh—;i man, oh
yes, she saw a man,
Standing approximately ten feet
from my once quiet place of study,
they chattered for ono full hour
ond twenty minutes—I vms at a
page hourly average by this time.
Then the pay off, she came over,
picked up her nooks and left.
Perhaps the a|m person has an
excess of grey matter, perhaps she
doesn't have to study—I >h
I would gladly stay home to
study but facilities aren'' convenient.
A Vetetle.
Suggestion
Dear Madam:
I would like to bring to the
immediate attention of the Pass
Feature Committee a suggestion
made in English 13 with regard to
tho concerts given down-town by
fumous visiting artists. Thc suggestion is this: That an agreement be made with Mr. Hilker
w h o r c b y University Students
would be permitted to buy at a
.reduced rate oil those tickets left
by eight-thirty the night of the
concert.'
Students interested could form
some sort of club so that telephone
contacts concerning the concerts
could be m.v\v rapidly. I am positive .such a club would l>e deeply
appreciated by those of us who
cannot afford to attend as many
of the concerts as we would like.
I hope the committee will sec fit
to call a meeting immediately of
all students interested so that they
may organize quickly and thereby
attend the remaining concerts of
the season, if Mr. Hilker fa UBC
alumni incidentally) should agree
to such an arrangement.
Thank you,
Lois  M.   Cook,
3rd year Arts.
One Per Customer
Dear Madam:
While waiting in line to got my
ticket to Mr. Petri's concert on
the 11th, I noticed many students
presenting three, four, and sometimes five AMS passes and getting
as many tickets. I object very
strongly to this proceedure and
.suggest that, in the future, the
AMS present ono ticket, nnd only
one ticket, to each student ln tho
queue.
There are 7,000 students at UBC .
nnd the seating capacity of tho
auditorium is only 1,000. This
means that many will not be able
to ho.ir Mr. Petrie since he is
playing only once.
My contention is that many who
lined up for tickets in the proper
manner would not get tickets, as
1.000 would go very quickly, yet
many who did not line up would
get tickets through the co-operation of their friends. This was
very unfair and, since it could be
easily repeated, I strongly urge
that, In the future, only one ticket
be given to each person in the
queue.
Morris Carrell.
Wake Up!
Dear Madam:
I should like to offer a few
thoughts on student voters. There
are four general types:
1. Thinker: He carefully analyses
the platform of all the candidates,
searches for evidence of past
achievements, discuss cs with
others; then he makes his decisions
f.nd votes. Good show. This
fellow knows how to use democracy.

OWNED AND OPERATED BY THE UNIVERSITY OF B.C. WARREN SEES BRIGHT
FUTURE IN GEOLOGY
By LAURA HAAHTI
"THERE is always lots of room at the top for a good
man."
This is the opinion passed by Dr. H. V. Warren, UBC
professor  of Geology  on the  prospects  for  veterans  in
geological engineering.
Dr. Warren stated   there   is   a       —^^———————
need for first class engineers with
oil and mining concerns, with the
Department of Mines, with the
Canadian Geological Survey, or in
foreign service.
Weighing the present number of
trained geologists against the demand for them, ne asserted that
the scales tip favorably for future
geological engineers.
Compared with Britain and the
United States, Canada lags behind
in producing trained geologists and
geographers to exploit her resources.
The professor of geology felt
that, although the demands are
rigorous, the prospects for geologists are good. Salaries range
from $100 a month to 9100 a day,
and there are good chances for
promotions. During training, veterans have n preference in getting
summer jobs with big companies.
LONG TRAINING
The long training—a possible
eight years of university work, the
rough, lonely life, and the exacting requirements of geological engineering made it unattractive to
some students. To them, Dr. Warren had a word of caution. "Don't
choose the profession for monetary
returns; choose it if you like the
work."
Dr. Warren emphasized that dependability was a prerequisite for
the profession. Because a geologist
is his "own boss" with no one to
check him, he needs "character
before brains" according to Dr.
Warren. Companies also like their
engineers to be athletic so that
they can withstand the hard life.
UBC Nudes Worry
President Allan
By H. M GOWANS
THE case of the UBC Nudes has
yet to be concluded.
The first development ln the
mystery occurred when the nudes,
unexplained, graced the office of
AMS president Allan Ainsworth.
Before warning the Beacon and the
State to take their publicity elsewhere. Ainsworth wu informed by
Mrs. Eva Bene that she had donated
the painting to UBC. Depicting
Venus and Bacchus, the peJntlng
wu the work of Flemish and
French classicists.
Of artistic interest to aesthetics,
end of curiosity to others, the
painting mystery had been a source
of much amusement to every one.
That is, everyone but Mr. Ainsworth, who informed the Ubyssey
that the picture would be in the
hands of the Art Committee. Hence
he had phoned Dr. G. M. Shrum
who had told him to phone Mr.
Lee who had told him to phone
Dr. Shrum. Although it is to be
displayed hi one of the new permanent buildings, Ainsworth still
doesn't know where the temporary
resting place of Venus and Bacchus
will be, nor when the picture will
be removed from his office.
"I hope they find some other
place for it soon," he said, "I don't
like having it around my office."
"You see it's quite valuable."

This terse message is the first indication received by
member papers of the Canadian University Press that a CUP
correspondent is covering the great 3100 mile Canadian
Army trek through the vast Canadian Northlands,
the   reporter ls
The name of
Jeffrey Aronin, first year Architectural student at the University
of Manitoba.
Aronin flew to Churchill, Manitoba, headquarters of Operations

FEB. 7 — Canada's peace time
armed services are living up to
their traditions in war. That university students are on the job in
Operations Muskox was learned in
an interview today aboard an
RCAF Dakota bound for Muskox
base headquarters at Churchill.
This fact was exemplified by
Colonel J. T. Wilson, deputy director of this Muskox exercise
which is scheduled to leave on tho

The colonel, who served with
the Canadian Army overseas, sum-
arized the purpose of the expedition.
"The snowmobile constructed
for the Norway Invasion will be
tested in winter conditions.
"Then the problem of supply
handled by equipment-dropping
Dakotas and in the far north by
ski planes, will be given an exhaustive examination.
"Thirdly, difficult navigation
and magnetic pole attraction in
the region will be studied.
"Finally, scientific information
of the unmapped territory, data
and meteorological aspects of the
north will be gathered."
"All these major problems will
be handled by university-trained
men possessing valuable knowledge," he stated.
Flight Lieutenant Bredt, inter-
year of Engineering, 1941.
He explains that he is "looking
forward" to a continuation of his
Manitoba engineering course next
year. In the service his engineering knowledge was of "considerable aid."
February 8 — "It doesn't take a
university student to build an
igloo, but lt does take a university
man to tell you when conditions
are favorable for comfortable
igloo sleeping.
That job is up to the meterolo-
gist. Here at base headquarters
of Operations Muskox in Churchill meteorological officer Gord
McKay and myself spent Friday
night in a homemade igloo just
outside the camp.
COLD BUNKS OUT
McKay's forecasts indicated that
conditions would be favorable for
bunking out despite 28 below
weather.
It soon became evident that ths
sleeping bags we used provided
ample warmth for men clad only
in pyjamas.
Igloos will be constructed on the
exercise whenever weather conditions prevent the use of tents.
ETIQUETTE
FAYETTE, Ia. (UP)-The first
sergeant has had the "book
thrown at him" at Upper Iowa
University—Emily Post's book ot
etiquette at that.
Veterans enrolling at the school,
who haven't begged anyone's pardon for years, petitioned the
faculty to Include an etiquette
course In the curriculum. Their
plea was granted, and Miss Grace
Meyers, dean of women, added the
course to the applied social science
division.
..Men accustomed to eating their
entire meal from a tin can with
the aid of only a soup spoon will

Canadian Pacific Hotels of summer work opportunities for
veterans.
The Malibou Club at Princess
Louise Inlet, the Chateau at Lake
Louise and The Banff Springs
Hotel are among the resorts seeking student employees. Mr. R. A.
Mackie, manager at Lake Louise
states that students are ideal for
this work because they will frequently be available for several
seasons. Employees will be supplied with room, board, and transportation to and from the hotel.
Openings are expected for waiters,
bell-boys, life guards, riding instructors, etc. There are positions
for both men and women.
Additional information may be

Dewar, representative from the
Legion, during a meeting of the
Undergraduate Society Committee.
Another form of publicity recommended would be writeups in local papers.
The new permanent Bureau will
be established ln about three
weeks, when it will have a permanent director appointed by President MacKenzie, The bureau is
to consist of three quarters administration and one quarter students.
The budget will not exceed 17000

RUGGER LEADS PARADE
THE CAMPAIGN to raise $500,000 to build UBC's War
Memorial Gymnasium is rapidly gaining impetus.
At a dinner meeting held last Monday in the Brock Hall
under the chairmanship of Physical Education Director Bob
Osborne, sports leaders in all branches of sport and physical
education endorsed the university's drive to build our own
gym-
English rugger was one of the first to step forward with
a concrete suggestion. They offered to turn over any money
made on the McKechnie Cup game to be played at the
campus Stadium March 2 between the Vancouver Lions and
the Varsity Reps.
Followed By  Basketball
All the Reps have to do now is beat Victoria Crimson
Tide in Victoria on February 16 and the game will be a
natural. That would leave Varsity and Vancouver Lions
tied at two wins and one loss apiece and the McKechnie Cup
at stake.
Not far behind the ruggermen in the way of financial
suggestions were the basketballers. The Thunderbirds play
College of Puget Sound on the evening of March 2 in the
Varsity Gym. Not satisfied with turning over the proceeds
of that game the hoopsters are planning to bring Victoria
Dominoes over for an afternoon game. This would be in
conjunction with a Physical Education display and presumably the rugger tilt. All this would be a feature of Visitor's
Day and should help to swell the War Memorial Fund more
than somewhat.
Where's The Rest Of  BC?
But this is supposed to be a gymnasium paid for by the
people of British Columbia. Yet most of the plans put
forward so far involve only the citizens of Vancouver and
Victoria.   How about the rest of BC?
Yes, we have an answer for that one, too. Right on the
campus we are supposed to have a pretty fair hockey team.
They have entered the BC Intermediate playoffs on a record
of 14 wins and two losses over this seasons play.
Nanaimo is a red-hot hockey town and they have an
intermediate squad that is considered pretty fair. The
Thunderbird puckmen have to play Nanaimo Army for the
coast title anyway, so why couldn't a two game series be
staged in Nanaimo with all the profits going to the UBC
War Memorial Fund.
Nelson Could Help, Too
The Nanaimo military authorities will probably be more
than willing to co-operate in such a series and the Nanaimo
civic council, who own the Nanaimo Arena might be prevailed
upon to forego rent as a friendly gesture. The Arena can
seat 1800 and with a bit of advance publicity the series would
probably be a sell-out for both games.
Nelson is another good hockey town and they also have a
good intermediate puck squad. The university's only Victoria
Cross winner, Hammy Gray, came from Nelson, one factor
which would put the Kootenay town 100 per cent behind a
series between UBC Thunderbirds and Nelson Maple Leafs
with the proceeds going to the UBC War Memorial Gymnasium Fund.
WAR-WHOOPING HOOPERS — UBC's Chiefs swing
into the playoffs of the Intercity Senior A Basketball League
tomorrow night as they play host to Stacys in the first game
of the semi-finals. Left to right, the above quintet includes
Jerry Stevenson, Bob Haas, Red Ryan, Pete McGeer, and
Dave Campbell.
BIG CHIEF CAGERS OPEN
PLAYOFFS TOMORROW
UBC's CHIEFS, Varsity's entry in the Intercity Commercial cage loop, will be out for blood when they tackle the
Stacy quintet at Varsity Gym in the first game of the semifinals tomorrow night.
Finishing up in second place to Lauries Pie-Rates after
leading the league all season, the Chiefs will be shooting for
the Intercity hoop title during these next two weeks of
""""—————————      playdowns.
Varsity Eleven
Defeat Collies
THE VARSITY soccer eleven
delivered in the clutches and defeated Collingwood 3-2 in the
semi-finals of the Imperial Cup.
This win gives the gold-shirts the
right to meet Vancouver Uniteds
in the Cup finals.
Collingwood drew fusi blood on
Saturday at Larwill when Harry
McDonald bounced the ball under
the bar after 20 minutes of play.
Collingwood again drew blood five
minutes later, but this time they
wounded themselves as Collie
halfback Pete Proctor pulled tho
boner of the day and kicked the
ball through his own goal to even
Ihe score.
Varsity captain Don Petrie's
soccer wisdom again showed as he
called the toss right and the Golds
came on the field in the second
half with the wind and the slope
in their favor, and with the sun
in the opponents' eyes.
GORRIE BREAKS TIE
With this setup Varsity kept the
ball in Collingwood territory the
whole half. The backs moved up
and took shots at thc goal, but
missed. The wingers came to life
in the second half and ran the
Collie defenders into the ground.
Varsity's conditioning was beginning to show.
But it was up to Sid Gorrie to
break the tie as he lobbed the
ball backwards and over the
goalie's head for the winning goal.
Pat Harrison scored another goal
which was seen by everyone hut
the referee. A spectator kicked
the bell back on the field after it
had gone through the posts and
the referee thought that it had
bounced oil the post and he lev
the play go on.
Both soccer teams will practice
on Tuesday at 3:30 on the upper
field. Players are asked to bring
their game strip to don when they
pose for their Totem pics on
Tuesday.
UBC will again resume league
play after a layoff due to bad
weather. Their game last Saturday
at Coquitlam was cancelled because of the lingering snow on the
field. The team enters its final
round of play and has a chance
at the league lead if the players
keep up their brand of fireball
they showed up Cup competition.
The Pie-Rates were the victims
of an astounding upset at King
Ed Gym Saturday night as the
" New Westminster Adanacs, win-
less throughout the season, scored
a 47-45 victory over the league-
leaders for their only triumph of
the season.
It was the final game of the year,
and the A's, sparked by Leo
Lizec's 19-points, came from behind to hand the highly-touted
Pic-Rates their biggest upset of
the season.
ADANACS DON'T RATE
However, the adanacs are out of
the playoffs, and therefore tht
seccnd-placo UBC quintet will do
b:ttle with the third-place Stacy
i-quad in a bsst-of-three semi-final
series to decide which team will
go on to met Lauries in the Intercity finals.
Coach Art Johnson is confident
of a victory on his home court on
the campus tomorrow night, having put the 10-man outfit through
regular rigorous work-outs since
tiie defeat at the hands of the
Pie-Rates last Wednesday.
Game time tomorrow night will
be 8:30 at UBC Gym.
Varsity Pucksters
Keep Winning
VARSITY'S razzle-dazzle hockey
clan extended their winning streak
another notch Sunday night as
they thrashed the Paper Mills sextette in a closely-contested tilt by
a 7-3 count at Queen's Park.
The home stretch proved to be a
thriller as the Point Grey boys
outscored thc milling club despite
a series of rushes that threatened
to break up the sixty-minute effort of Varsity's stonewall defence
duo of Owen Woodside and Terry
Nelford. But the bulwark held
and the offence power of Jim
Rowledge and Lloyd Torfason increased the sizeable lead the students had amassed in the first two
periods.
Next Sunday night the pucksters' edition of the Thunderbirds
meet Shepard and White to decide
the league leadership before the
playoffs commence. Each go into
the tilt with only one loss chalked
up against them.

'Birds Bop Portland;
Prep For Badgers
SANDY ROBERTSON paced the Thunderbirds to their
10th consecutive win of the year as the UBC basketballers
rolled to a 72-45 victory over the hapless University of
Portland Pilots on the Varsity maple court Saturday night.
Scoring 27 points to equal the record he set in the last
game of the 1945 season, cage captain Robertson brought his
average up to 14.5 points per game, having tallied a total of
361 counters in 25 games this esason.
COACH YANDLE'S PLAN FAILS
UBC won Friday night, 82-38, to equal the local scoring
record set three weeks ago against Whidbey Island Flyers.
Although the Thunderbirds were slow in starting for the third
straight night, they soon overcame an 18-10 deficit as they surged to the
top end of a 34-23 count at the breather.
Robertson was largely responsible for the sudden scoring rampage
which started midway through the opening canto. He notched nine
baskets for 18 points in that period.
ONLY SEVEN THUNDERBIRDS
Coach Len Yandle attempted to arrest the scoring spree by putting
his best checks on the Thunderbird captain, bottling him up oa every
play. But young Pat McGeer smashed the plan by taking over the
sharpshooting. The talented southpaw earned a dozen points in the
second half.
As in the first three games against the Pilots, Dave Lebenzon was
the only Portlander to show any promise, scoring one-third of the
Yandlemen's points.
The fact that Ritchie Nichol, Reg Clarkson, and Hal McKenzie all
took a holiday, going to their homes on Vancouver Island for the week-end,
had little effect on the UBC squad although there were 12 Pilots in the
contest.
PREP FOR PACIFIC SERIES
The tilt finished off a four-game home-and-home series with Varsity
taking a clean sweep and a 276-167 total-point triumph.
Saturday night's game was the 20th win of the season for the
Thunderbirds against losses for a percentage of .769. The club has
now averaged better than 60 points per game this year.
Coach Osborne will put the team through its paces this week in
preparation for the conference series with Pacific University's Badgers
this Friday and Saturday.   Game time both nights will be 8 o'clock.
