Fired with the prospect of solitary peace in the.r 7x12' trailer "studies" Walter Fogg (left)
and Vernon Shook (right), begin work on the sewing room for the wives at the Little
Mountain Trailer Camp. Cramped trailed homes have made it necessary for wives to seek
outside space for their social gatherings.

No matter where women gather they like toN talk. Where
university men gather they are supposed to study. In a trailer
camp with limited space and soundproofing, one or the other
must make the great sacrifice. (
If you find less errors in today's

The main difficulty has been, however, to obtain furniture for the

Alcoholics Anonymous To
Form Branch On Campus
Aggie Student Member Of AA To
Save His Fellows From The Mire
. Alcoholics   Anonymous, , the *
self-help   movement   that   has
saved more than 80,000 confirmed   drunkards   from   enslava-
ment by the bottle, will establish a branch a t TJBC.
An ex-alcoholic now studying agriculture here is forming an exclusive university branch oil "AA" to
save his fellow students from the mire
of drunkeness he just escaped.
Among students at UBC, he says
there are many potential candidates
who seek to save themselves from the
affliction of liquor,
"It is surprising," he says, "the
number of students who can't wait
to get off the campus and everybody
head for the beer parlor.
''You see them every' day, the same
faces, down in the pubs."
If his movement to enrol students
into AA succeers, the young married
air force veteran may bring professors into the movement.
Already in Vancouver there are 35
members of Alcoholics Anonymous
under  thirty.
The moverrient has saved more than
1200   persons   'in   Vancouver   alone
Greeks Bring
'Downtown' Talent
To Aid Flood Fund
The AMS pledged $3,000 to the B.
C, Flood Emergency Fund last, spring.
Now the AMS cannot afford to make
this donation from it's general funds.
It is felt by the students council
that' no one function could possibly
raise the total amount of the pledge.
To help the AMS live up to its
promise the Greek Letter Societies
and Phrateres are planning to present numerous smaller shows and
charge   low   admission   prices.
The Greeks hope to bring irvi'o the
campus the performers featured al
some   of   the   downtown   nightclubs.

Campus In Dark As
Liqhts Do Fade
Students of UBC were in the dark
as  local  current stoppage hits part
of the campus buildings.
At approximately 12:30 Wednesday
afternoon the lights went out in certain university buildings. The base-
mcervt of the Brock, the upper auditorium and sections of the arts rooms
were black for five minutes.
Thc exact cause of tlie trouble Is
unknown but it Is suspected, because
the B.C. Electric has no knowledge of
it, to be a local disturbance.
How To Tell
If You Are
An Alcoholic
Here's how to tell if you are
an alcoholic.
A young married agriculture student who plans to form a branch of
Alcoholics Anonymous at UBC has
this test for alcoholism:
If you answer "Yes to two or more
of these questions, you are an alco-
Do you drink to build up self-confidence or to "get up nerve?"
Do you drink alone.
Do you find you can't stop drinking
after the first drink?
Do you have an unquenchable
ihirst for alcoholic drinks?
Do you go to any lengths to get a
drink while "on one."
Do you crave a "hair from the dog
that bit you."
Do you drink to escape from worry and troubles.
.Do you get into financial troubles
from drinking.
Do you drink when you are "blue."
Do you drink between servings of
drinks to other guests.
The campus branch of the Canadian Legion has collected
$89 for its "Operation Pigskin".

Campus Spirit Deplorable
Announce UBC Pep Club
Deplorable is the word that describes campus spirit in the
past few years at UBC.
This year there is a group whose main interest is the
betterment of student activity and the attempt to intsill some
spirit in the average student.
This is UBC's Pep Club. <& —
Gett'ing organized in the very early
part of the term, the club, under
the leadership of Lome Glendinning,
began plans for the campus. Top priority at the moment is tlie big Homecoming weekend.
The last football dance was presented by the Pep Club and they
managed to clear$100.48 profit which
was turned into AMS funds.
"The club is essentially a service
group," said club prexy Glendinning.
"We will give our help if it is in tlie
interest of the student body."
From thc freshman class 250 student's volunteered for participation
in   tlie  club   activities.
At present, the executive, corn-
prised of Mary Philpott, secretary-
treasurer, Chick Turner, co-ordinator;
Dave Walker, Rally Chairman; Don
Kerley, bands and majorette co-ordinator; and Dennis Pierce and Ruthie
Genis as Veil Queens; along veh'h
presienl Glendinning have been doing   the spade  work  for  the group.
The club is asking all older and
more experienced students on the
campus to turn out and help the Pep
Club meetings.
Band Leader Not
Cominq To Campus
Thoughts of bringing band leader
Louis Armstrong to UBC campus was
a little less hopeful today.
He will not appear on the campus
unless he is booked at t'he forum
where he was to play a one night
AMS president ,Dave Brouson feels
much to bring the famous band lead-
thai, it would cost altogether too
er to  the  campus on  AMS funds.
Hilker attractions say it is very
unlikely that Armstrong will be in
Vancouver at all. «    i

Success In Radio
Upon Sound Effects
Radio drama is an art form;
in itself according to Dick Dies-I
pecker, prominent CJOR dra-j
miitist. '
In an informal half-hour lecture delivered to a small but en'-j
thusidstic group of Radio So-;
ciety script writers, at noonj
Wednesday, Mr, Diespeckerj
outlined some of the more im-;
pdrtant factors in radio drama.!
Dominant feature of radio is its
voice, appeal rather than eye appeals
To this end, an approach through the
voice must bc taken in wilting radio
ncript, rather than through the appearance  of   the  words  on  the   pane
''Anything   that   will   read   well,"
maintained Mr, Diospeckcr, "will look*
well in prin|."
Chief pitfall ' of radio writers is;
static writing. As radio programs oncei
produced- cannot be preserved in!
some simple form like that of books:.!
the essential . change „of technique;
and approach must always be ccn-j
sidered. j
Two outstanding writers who have:
used "changing methods" i'o advantage are Norman Corwinn and Arch'
Obeler. ;
Asking directors to do impossible
things .such ns creating the sound of
a baby crying during a raging thunderstorm while I he kettle is boiling
on the stove and a crowd mills
through an air raid shelter, is another blunder spot in radio,

Vet. Dick Hanley Leads

Ole Bakken To,Coach
New Senior A Squad
While everyone was finding trouble with the lightning
:ast greens the steady veteran Dick Hanley, took medal honors
in the University Golf Championship, which was played on
;he University Golf Course last week.
<$> '	
Hanley turned in a creditable score
of 74 which just bettered West Point
member Walt Manning's 76. Bob Esplin and R. Waldie were tied for
third spot with 77's. Last year's champ
DoUg Bajus followed with a 79.      •
Grouped at 80 were Pete Bentley,
Don Bodie, J. Gibson, and Dave Fair-
weather. Don Sutton, Phil Strike
and H. McKenzie followed with 81's
Jim Bruce, Jim McKinnon and J.
Bagley tied for 13th, 14th and loth
positions in the draw.
Doug Angell and Bob Williams
will have to play off to decide who
Will fill the 16th and last spot. Thc
winner of this playoff will have the
pleasure of meeting medalist, Hanley in the first round of the match
Two flights have been arranged
for all those who did not qualify for
the championship division. These
flight matches will be played with
%  difference in  handicap.
All players are requested to pay
their dues of $1.00 at the AMS office.
Failure to do so will make the player ineligible for prizes and will restrict his privileges on the University
Golf Course.
Players are also asked to complete
their first rounds by Tuesday the
19th, and when they have finished,
to write the results on the sheets
that are posted on the cafe side of
the Quad Notice Board.
The second meeting of the UBC
Golf Club was held last Tuesday.
The main business at hand was the
election of officers for tho year 1948-
49. Peter Bentley was elected president, Bob Esplin, vice-president and
Doug  Bajus  secretary-treasurer.
Stiff Workouts
Whip 'Birds
Into Top Shape
UBC's new head coach of
•basketball, Jack Pomfret, is
literally running the feet off
his charges in pre-season workouts.
With six prominent members of
lost year's team returning to the
campus, prospects for a very succes-
1'ul  season look good.
Speedy guard Ried Mitchell, John
Forsyth, Nev Munroe, Dave f Campbell, Bill Bell, and Jimmy McLean
are the returning men. Mitchell,
Bell and Munvoe represented Canada
in   (he  14t'h   Olympiad   in   London.
At present there are about 26 eager
aspirants turning out. From this
group the Birds and the Chiefs will
bc picked.
Practices are comprised of high
speed drills, shooting style, general
ealesthenics, push-ups, all 'are included  in  t'he  workout  schedule.
Strong stress on fundamentals is
the keynote of the new coaches program these days. Shooting, dribbling,
and very little actual play, outside of
a few minutes of scrimmage at the
end of each practice are the order of
the  day,
According to all reports, this year's
aggregation will be shorter in stature
than any previous club. However,
what the boys lack in height they
surely intend to make up in speed, if
their practice routine is any indication of things to come.

squad serving as a farm club for the
more   experienced   Varsity   "Chiefs."
With pie-season practices rolling
nto their third week, the original
sixty aspirants who turned out for
the combined Thunderbird-Chief
training sessions have been pared to
twenty-five by hoop mentor Jack
In so dping, an extra large supply
of Senior A calibre players has ap-
.uxd  on ihe  campus and  thus the
decision  to  form  two  teams  for  the
coming   season.
The new squad will'bo coached up
to Christmas by ex-Thunderbird
star and former member of the Dominion Champion Clover Leafs, Ole
Bakken, and then the reins will probably be handed over to grid coach
Den Wilson.
The juniors club will not be expected to sweep the senior A league
rather serve a.s a training ground for
future Thunderbird and Chief players
Officials are forming the group to
give everyone a chance to play during thc season. They feel that the experience gained by actually taking
part in the games would be better
than having the hoopsters sit on the
bench or playing in a lesser league.
New enrolments at Friday's meeting
of the Track, Field , and Harrier Club
brought the seasons total to the forty-
five mark. |
It was announced that if sufficient
interest is shown a freshman track
and field team will be formed in the
spring, A fall meet is being planned
between a freshman team and 'the
New Westminster High Schools.

UBC Grid Battles
To Be Filmed
By Extension Dept.
Something new has been added ,,in
the way of football education on the
campus, with the MAD decision to
take motion pictures of each home
game, for the edification of the football players and also for the student
body in general.
Under the auspices of the University extension department, the games
will be seen through the camera's
eye, with approximately 6,000 feet of
film to be shot at each grid tussle.
Plans are afoot to rent the pictures
to downtown movie houses thus
swelling the coffers of the MAD, in
hopes of helping out with the general austerity program instituted by
Paul Plant.
An example of the helpfulness of
the films is seen in the fact that UBC
opening game was filmed and the
players have an excellent chance to
study their mistakes when they again
face the Western Washington Vikings
in a late season game in Bellingham,
Ole Bakken, Graduate Manager of
Athletics, has put in a good deal of
work on the new idea, so as to afford
the benefit of the games to those who
are unable to see them in the flesh,
as well as to give the team every
chance to make an improved showing in future games.
