 Angry Artsmen  Flaunt Council Edict--Hole. Lively Election
is not dead. The one
hundred and fifty second
year Artsmen and women
who turned out to elections
Wednesday noon showed a
class spirit that hasn't been
shown in Arts for years.
Feeling and spirit ran so
high that chairman Les Raphael had a hard time keeping any semblance of order
in the meeting. Raphael said
that this example of class
spirit will definitely lift the
Arts faculty out of the cellar.
After rowdy nominating and voting Keith MacDonald was elected
president, George Hamilton vice-
president, Nancy MacDonald secretary, and Sylvia Dicer treasurer
As a result of these elections
and the high spirit shown in them
the Arts-Aggie will be held this
year, stated Les Raphael. Unless
a third or fourth year executive
is   elected   the   sophomores   will
take charge of it in addition to
the Frosh-Soph.
Guards were placed at the doors
to keep the atmosphere as free as
possible of Sciencemen and Aggies.
It is not as yet definitely known
whether or not the elections will
be legal because Council suspended all Arts elections in a minute passed Monday night.   How
ever, Les Raphael said that if the
senior classes showed the same
spirit, he saw no reason why they
"shouldn't have elections too."
The one hundred and fifty enthusiastic Artsmen represented a
quorum in the opinion of Raphael,
and the votes of those few Science-
men and Aggies as did manage
to get in were ignored to the best
of   the  ability  of  those handling
the election.
Those nominated for the offices
were: President, Ken MacPherson
and Tom McCusker; vice-president, Don MacDonald, Bob Estey,
and Dave Yates; secretary, Pat
Mayne and Freddy Kendall; treasurer, Joe White, and Tom Abbott.
Dr. Sedgewick was elected Hon-
ourary President.

Yanks Batter
Pacific Enemy
• ALLIED HEADQUARTERS in the Pacific—Enemy anti-
invasion defenses in the Philippines have taken another
battering from carrier planes of Admiral Halsey's Third Fleet.
The American planes hit Luzon yesterday on the 10th
day of a record-breaking offensive which has cost the enemy
at least 338 ships and small craft sunk or damaged and 934
planes destroyed.
Last Appeal
The Luzon attack—which Admiral Nimitz says continues—resulted
in the destruction of seven more
ships and 19 planes. Only one Japanese plane ventured into the air
to oppose the raid. It was promptly
shot down.
At the same time, Tokyo says
American planes have hit the
Manila area again and have attacked in southern Luzon.
Admiral Nimitz gives a fresh report of the strike against Formosa
last Wednesday. This revised
figure raises the total of ships and
small craft bagged October 11th,
12th and 13th to 205—an increase
o fmore than 100.
In contrast to the 900 odd enemy
planes destroyed since the big
series of attacks started October
9th, only 79 American planes have
been lost. That's a victory ratio
of nearly 12 to one.
While Halsey's fleet continues its
attacks almost unmolested, American troops have occupied another
atoll (Ngulu) in the Caroline
Islands about 750 miles east of the
Southern Philippines. The atoll,
210 miles northeast of Palau, was
taken Sunday against slight resistance. Seven enemy soldiers
were killed and one was made
This atoll is just south of Japan's
important Yap Island, regarded as
one of the major enemy bases In
the Pacific. Yap now is bracketed
by our troops in their newly-won
positions and others who occupied
Ulithi   Atoll   September   20th,   as

November 2.
Modern dances will be interspersed on the program. The
dance is strictly formal for women
but the men of their choice may
dress according to their taste.
Refreshments will be served at
the "Waltz Time" tormal.
• A  LETTER has been sent to
the administration asking that
the faculty, tennis courts behind
the Brock be converted to an additional   parking  lot.
The space behind the Brock will
only accomodate about forty cars,
and the overflow of cars at social
functions will not be allowed to
park on the mall in front of the
Brock  because of fire regulations.

Totem Pep ffleet
Will Present
favourite Band'
• THE AIR FORCE band comes
to the campus next week for
the first time this year to provide
the sweet and mellow, not to mention the hot, at the Totem Pep
meet Tuesday, October 24.
This red hot aggregation, which
wowed students twice last year,
and again at summer session, is
without doubt the smoothest, thc
liveliest, the hottest thing in swing
bands to appear "aTTfBC for a good
long time.
Also featured on the program
will be a skit put on by Pubsters,
those rare animals found running
about the campus in the general
direction of the Brock on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays,
which has bc^n especially murdered for the occasion.
Admission to the show is absolutely free, but anyone who brings
along a dollar to put on the line
for a Totem next spring will be
especially welcome, and especially
lucky too. The Totem is by far
the biggest $3.00 book buy in
town and copies will be printed
only for those wise enough to reserve a copy within the next few
weeks while the big campaign
is on.
The objective is 2,000 books sold
by Christmas, and every book sold
means that much more money to
make the book better than ever.
Remember this year you get 300
pages of what was worth the same
price three years ago in only 250

• THE PUBLICATIONS BOARD is making one last appeal to all those students who have not yet had their
pictures taken for the Totem.
This is it.
Anyone whose picture has not been taken by Saturday,
October 28, will not see his picture in the Totem.
In our business it is impossible to wait for students, or
to rely on the student body in any manner. We have to be
strict because delay costs money and time, produces poor and
late publications.
When October 28 rolls around, the Totem staff will
gather up all pictures taken and send those to the engraver.
We are going to be very, cold-blooded.
Anyone who has not had his picture taken by October
28 will not see his picture in the Totem.

Allies Prepare
Winter Attack
In West Curope
By B.U.P.
London dispatches claim that the
High Command is moving up men
for a winter drive in Western
Europe to be started when snow
and ice harden the mud and when
training of troops for winter fighting is completed.
A springboard for such a cold-
weather offensive has been gained
by British troops in eastern Holland. They have captured the
wrecked junction of Venray in a
drive against the West-Wall along
a 12-mile front.
With American armor on its
right flank, the British Army has
gained three miles in a drive
crowding the Germans out of their
salient west of the Meuse (or
Maas) River and into the main
Siegfried forts. Berlin says seven
Allied infantry divisions and several of armor are participating in
the Dutch attack. The enemy
claims the destruction of 47 Allied
tanks in fighting on that sector in
the last few days,
At Aachen, the United States
First Army is hunting down the
beaten remnants of the German
garrison in old Roman tunnels

Arts Paradox
Finis has been written to a sorry chapter
in the history of student government at this
Those who were elected to lead have
failed to lead those who would not be led.
The question of the Artsmen boils down to
this little paradox in which Student Council
and Artsmen alike share the blame for the
suspension of Arts executives.
Last week we outlined our reasons why
Arts executives are useless on the campus
and suggested two ways to bring the farce
to an end. Little did we know that Council
would take the least'desireable of the two.
We said that Arts executives are unnecessary here because there is nothing for
them to do, and advocated either giving the
executives jobs worthy of their talents or
eliminating the positions altogether.
But our nine student leaders cannot
think of any job which they could delegate
to Arts executives—so they give up and call
the whole thing off while many student
problems, some concerning Artsmen directly, go begging.
It is time, therefore, for all students—
whether they be Artsmen or not—to show
Council how to run student affairs. We suggest immediate establishment of a petition
for a protest meeting at which Council will
be made to explain why they cannot solve
this problem.
Then throw the meeting open to suggestions from the floor. There are* many
good minds in the Arts faculty, and we feel
sure that executives with jobs to do would
arise immediately.
The Graduates Return
Anyone who has ever re-visited the
scenes where he once spent the happiest,
most hectic days of his life knows the slight
tug on the heart and empty little feeling in
the stomach which such sentimental things
as human beings experience. It's a pain and
a joy at the same time, but it is also a wonderful part of living. Those feelings will come
again this year when UBC's annual Homecoming gets under way.
Perhaps some people consider it silly
and frivolous to return to the institution
where they received the training that made
them into the present citizens of Canada,
but to us Homecoming symbolizes all that
we hold dear in past, present and future
Homecoming is a great pilgrimage in
which graduate and undergraduate alike
pledge themselves again to the cause of higher education, whose cause in turn is the
advancement of civilization. In the actual
celebration this does not seem evident. The
real motive behind Homecoming is the .quiet
realization of the aims and ideals of the
university. On the surface it appears to be
only an attempt to have a good time.
Graduates will roam about the campus,
re-living again undergraduate days of lectures, exams, mixers, pep meets, Caf coffee,
formals and a host of other memories which
will live forever in the minds of the
alumni of the University of British
Columbia. The sounds of voices lost forever
to the outside world will echo with their
youthful counterparts of the present generation. Voices which once governed ihe affairs
of students and now the business of Canada
will mingle with their future successors.
Junior Member Allan Ainsworth has planned a varied program which should make
Homecoming a great success. It can be a
success, but it needs the good support of the
student body along with that of tiie alumni.
From the entertainment angle, there is nothing more fun than a Homecoming with its
game, dance, plays—spiced with the autumn
air and varsity spirit which everyone associates with a University reunion.
It's a great time of the year and one
which we hope to enjoy many times in those
long years after graduation.
• StreSSeS  and  Strains ...by Bruce Bewell
• SEVERAL YEARS ago when the
university was in its infancy somebody
decided that surveying was indeed an honourable art, and as such it deserved a place
in the curriculum of' the second year engineer. Thus was born the course described
by the calendar as Civil Engineering 2 and
known popularly as survey school.
This school occupies a period of two
weeks between the annual spring sacrifices
to the god of learning and four months in
the shipyards. During this time several
learned and conscientious men do their best
to saturate the redshirts with a knowledge
of transits, chains, and rods so they may
collect data with which to draw a map the
following spring. Unfortunately the redshirts
feel that they have finished an ordeal and
are now three men, hence they are in no
mood to be saturated. The map is usually
drawn by somewhat different means, but
that is another story.
At the beginning of Civil 2 the class is
divided into parties, which are instructed
about the care and feeding of transits and
then turned loose to survey the campus.
The first step in the survey is to drive
a stake into the ground. The driving must
be accompanied by appropriate ceremony,
which usually includes the rendering of old
traditional engineering songs. When this has
been done another stake is driven some six
or seven hundred feet away.
The transit is set up over this last stake
and a sight is taken on the first stake. The
next step is to drive yet another stake and
sight on it. At this time, however, two or
three co-eds in shorts go cycling past. Simultaneously everybody remembers the telescope in the transit and there is a mad
scramble to train said telescope on the passing beauties. This is known as sighting a
curve, and is a very popular activity.
When the all clear sounds the party returns to work, recording angles, measuring
distances, and reading Esquire. Everything
goes well until the traverse is completed
and the party retires to compute its position.
Usually they find themselves in the middle
of the lily pond, the Brock Lounge, or the
north-east corner of the Aggie barns. This
is most embarassing, especially when they
should be at the corner of the Mall and
University Boulevard.
Nothing daunts the men of science.
After three stiff cokes they manfully shoulder their transit and start out again, leaving
one of their number to check the calculations. When they return three hours later
they usually find their mathematician seated
in the Caf. He greets the weary surveyors
"I've been waiting darned near three
hours for you joes," he says happily. "I
found the mistake just after you left. The
traverse closes on the nose now. All I had
to do was change 674.23 to 694.23."
More computers are lost that way.
Other interesting things happen at survey school. There is the joy of accomplishment when you find out that a scratch on
a brass plug embedded in the side of the
dairy barn is precisely 302.23 feet above a
red spot on a rock on the beach. You are
also thrilled to find that the area of a certain
plot of forest is 6.4 acres and when you find
that the curve on University Boulevard near
the East Mall is precisely 164 degrees and
28 minutes you are left speechless.
Several years ago three parties were
running lines through the bush near where
the Brock now stands. One of the local
citizens who was interested in surveying
came by to discover the transits all set up
and the rods, chains and other equipment
piled neatly nearby, but nary a redshirt in
sight. This citizen, fearing that he had
stumbled on the scene of a mysterious disaster, hastened to inform the instructor of
his find.
The instructor immediately investigated
and, as it is considered definitely poor form
to leave several hundred, dollars worth of
precision optical equipment unattended, he
gathered it up and took it back to the storeroom with the aid of the interested citizen.
The next day the missing surveyors
turned up promptly at starting time. They
were led aside and questioned about their
mysterious disappearance.
"Well," explained their spokesman, "it
was a hot day so we all decided to go down
to the Georgia for a couple—and we were
sort of detained."
The instructor thereupon delivered a
stirring lecture expressing his views of surveyors who leave a traverse in the middle,
and concluded with very definite instructions to never, under any circumstances,
leave their equipment unattended again. The
redshirts departed. The instructor then remembered the interested citizen and phoned
him to put his mind at rest.
When the situation was explained, the
citizen, who seemed to have a sense of humour, laughed heartily and thanked the instructor for his thoughtfulness,
A couple of days later the instructor
received a call from the interested citizen.
"I see the boys have followed your instructions," he chortled. "I just passed the
Georgia and you can't get in the place for

in the last few days on a cross
section of the student body, by far
the greater number are of the
opinion that such a faculty should
become a reality.
Out of 25 students questioned,
nineteen were in favour, two a-
galnst, and four indefinite.
The general trend of thought as
voiced by Vernon MacMahon,
graduate, was that "the establishment of such a faculty here would
be a benefit to the university, to

"A faculty in this field would
be a very great step ln making
Forestry more attractive to the
prospective student", said Colin
Graham, second year Arts.
Ian May, 1st Year Agriculture
student, pointed out that "this university is In an ideal position for
the study of forestry and reforestation" and that "a faculty should
without a doubt be estabUshed".
On the other hand, as one anonymous Scienceman said, "Wood
is on the way out. The lumber
industry wiU be replaced by plastics after the war."
A small number of students
would not commit themselves because as one freshette put it, "I
don't know anything about It, why
ask me?"
Out of those questioned on this
subject, 15 were in Arts, 6 in
Science and 4 in Agriculture.
Letters To
The Editor
Dear Sir:
To make a tour of inspection of
the campus of the University of
Saskatchewan you enter through
the Memorial Gates, erected in
memory of the alumni who gave
their lives in the Great War and
in the present conflict. Immediately on our right Is St. Andrew's,
the United Church theological
college. It, like most of the university buUdings is built of beautiful grey stone. «
The Observatory and the first
school erected In Saskatoon, now
custodian of the university records, appear next on the right.
Over from these, and facing the
residential section are Emanual
Anglican College, Rugby Chapel
and St. Thomas More Catholic
However, following the main
drive, we turn to the left past the
Chemistry building noting the
impressive arched doorway to the
main entrance hall within. Beyond is the Physics building. Now
the driveway curves around the
central bowl of green lawns, flowers and shrubbery to the College
building which houses the main
library and Convocation Hall.
On the right side of the bowl
is Saskatchewan Hall, the girl's
residence and across from it Qu'-
Appelle Hall, the men's residence
and hub of sports and most student activities.
Beyond the College building is
Field Husbandry and then the
very widely talked of Engineering
building, the only brick edifice
on the campus. Rutherford rink
and the university farm buildings
are on the outskirts.
On the campus there are also the
homes of the President and the
deans of Agriculture and Engineering.
The University boasts of the
following colleges: Agriculture,
Arts and Science, Commerce,
Household Science, Law, Music,
Pharmacy, Engineering, Medicine,

• EDMONTON, October
18— (CUP) —Correspondence passing this summer between Students' Representative Council President Bob Ellis and heads of
student bodies in other Canadian Universities indicates
that immediate action of a
more or less definite calibre
will be taken toward instituting a national council for
the handling of student affairs.
Attendant upon Mr. Ellis' election platform which stressed the
institution of such a council to
guide and govern student policies,
and to take concerted action on
points of controversy, documents
were sent to the student heads
of other campi outlining the proposal and suggesting a form in
which it could be set up. Mr. El-
highly satisfactory, and that those
lis reports that the response was
contacted expressed their ready
willingness to co-operate in such
a venture. The need for such a
council, they stated, was great in
all universities, and the work that
could be completed thereby of
great benefit to all students.
1. The Universities of Toronto
and McGill advocated the reorganization of the old National Federation of Canadian University
Students. This Federation dissolved with the fall of organized liberal expression in university circles in 1939. It was an organization which, much like the CUP.

no Outside Play
for UBC Talent
• DOBS ANYONE on this campus know how athletic activities are ruled? All Varsity teams
in all sports are formed by two
organizations, the Faculty Council
and the Men's Athletic Directorate.
The MAD recommends a motion
to the Faculty Council, who may
or may not make the motion a rule.
Whatever the Council's decision, it
Ls the duty of the MAD to exercise
the ruling.
Once every year the Council has
the problem of letting Varsity boys
play for other teams. This year,
the question has risen again. The
BCABA has sent a letter to the
MAD about the situation in regard
te basketball.
The letter suggested that the
MAD release Varsity players to the
other teams under certain conditions.
These conditions were that the
players lent to other teams would
be under the jurisdiction of the
MAD, and could be withdrawn
from league competition when
their scholastic achievements went
below par.
The MAD and the Faculty Council turned down the motion unanimously. The reasons they gave
were that there is no surplus of
good players and that with UBC
entering four teams into league
competition there is room in all
the Varsity teams for all the Varsity players.
Cliff Henderson who is now playing his third year of Inter 'B' bail
proved to be the high scorer for
the Varsity boys, finding the hoop
for nine points. Gordy Lade was
close behind with seven points and
Gordy played really headflrup ball.
But then as Coach Pete McGeer
puts it, "There wasn't a man out
there that didn't play a good
Bill McLeod started things off by
scoring the first basket ot the game.
From there on Varsity kept rolling
along to end the quarter with an
11-3 bulge, Mr. Henderson contributing four of the points. Higbies came back strong after the
breather to net eight points without a reply from Varsity until Dave
Rea came through with a foul shot
to put the Blue and Gold ahead
12-11 at the half.
It was the Students' turn again
in the third quarter when once
again Cliff Henderson came
through to ring up five more
points. The big number 13 on Doug
Henderson's back didn't have any
bad omens for him. He played a
swell game and made a great floor
length dash in the third quarter
sinking his shot with two Higbie
men hanging on his shoulders.
The highlight of the game came
when Higbies' high scorer, Bob
Mills, let go with a "Clarkson"
from the centre of the floor with
one minute to go. When the final
whistle blew, Varsity was on the
top end of a 28-22 score.
In the two proceeding games, Mc-
Gavins took Western Higbies 35-21
and Doug Maclntrye's Tookes
downed MacKenzie-Fraser 28-20.
The latter game was a pretty one
to watch as both teams played wide
open ball. Cam McLeod was high
scorer for the winners with nine
points. So far it ls not known
which teams will play in the first
division but probably Varsity,
Tookes and McGavlns will be three
of them.
According to the latest developments, Varsity's Inter A Frosh
team will play in the first division
of the Inter 'B' League. There is
no competition for them anywhere
else as Higbies Inter 'A' will be
playing Senior 'A'. There was a
hope of playing Senior 'B' but as
there are already an even number
of teams in this loop, they were
asked to play Inter 'B'. They will
play Higbies for the Inter 'A'
championship in the spring.
