 Freshman Designs Aggie Crest
SOME TIME ago the Aggies decided they wanted a distinctive
faculty crest. Under the sponsorship of the AUS a contest was organized and a judging committee
Many designs were submitted,
iwne of which caused the committee members to wake up
screamimg. Out of it all, however,
owe this creation dreamed up by
freshman John Sleburth.
After an ail-nifht session with
Kcastoaal fights, the committee
finally agreed to present Mr. Sie-
iarth with three green potatoes
for his magnificent effort.
The choosing of a plow alone
iMght teem satisfactory enough to
Z" of tlu? students at UBC. Actuary it W'.mld not present t'.io true
picture of an Aggie at this university, the committee decided.
Lack of proper facilities has forced this faculty to stress tho theoretical and laboratory aspect of
Aggie claim to scientific methods
is through thc use of chemistry,
reace the piece of chemical apparent in the new crest. Chemical
studios help them in all departments and usually the research can
bo tracked down to a study of proteins, fats, and carbo-hydrates,
with vitamins thrown in.
Aggies are reminded that this
beautiful new crest will soon bo
un sale at the AMS office, at a
nominal price.

earlier in tho week that attempts

students known not to have voted
ii. the election for AMS president.
Leader of the delegation, Frank
Kubler, second year Commerce.

been used in this manner. Checking the examination lists which
were used as voters lists at thc
polls, lv. pointed to hi.s name which
had   been   crossed   off  to   indicate
he had voted.
"That i.s my proof," be asserted.
"I definitely did not vote. Someone used my name."
Kubler said he had heard rumours that some attempts at organized ballot-packing had been made.
The name of one other student,
Herbert Schon, first year Arts, was
used in this manner.
Committee chairman Nancy Pitman, interviewed at Wednesday'&
rolls for AMS treasurer, told the
"We were shocked to realize anything of the sort had happened.
We certainly knew nothing about
it while the voting for AMS president was going on. That is why
we are demanding AMS paSM.s

the applause of satisfaction.
The  Bach,  however,  was  rather
unsettling. I cannot help feeling
that it should not have been placed

the interruptions of flashlight bulbs

THE UBYSSEY, Thursday, February 14, 1946, Page 2
ONE OF THE PROPOSED new activities
on the campus is the organization of an
Employment   Bureau,      Undoubtedly    the
problem of finding employment  for such
large and increasing numbers of men and
women is going to be a difficult one, and
consequently it must be attacked with forethought and energy.
In my opinion there are at least two
additional approaches to the problem. In
the first place, I am inclined to doubt
whether the number of men seeking employment is greater than the number of jobs
to be filled. This is a young province, and
its natural resources appear to be considerable. So far, however, the strongest emphasis has not been placed on the- encouragement'of progressive, permanent development
of the primary industries.
There seems to be a general belief that
there are easier or at least more comfortable
ways of making a living than by working
in primary industry. There may be reasons
for this belief, and not the least of them is
that in the past there has been a tendency
to exploit both the natural industries themselves and the men engaged in them. Until
such time as this general condition is
rectified, we cannot expect that men will
rush into training for employment in these
industries. However, it is in these industries
that, the jobs arc and, still more important,
one good worker in these industries makes
work for at least one or two more workers
in secondary industries, business or traas-
The second approach I would suggest is
more specific. Some years ago a friend of
mine who operates a large poultry farm very
successfully said: "The trouble with The
University of British Columbia (and the-
Faculty of Agriculture) is that you are
teaching men to look for jobs when you
should be encouraging them to make jobs."
In a measure this criticism is fair, and in
recent years a stronger emphasis has been
placed on the idea of making jobs.
Not all men may be qualified or may have
the necessary financial backing to make jobs
for themselves, but many do have the
necessary ability, energy, foresight and skill
to think and plan for the future. These
men must start at a lower salary and be
content to rise more slowly, but they will
eventually climb much higher and occupy
most of the positions of leadership in the
varioys phases of industry. '
This is the time for many more students
to begin thinking in terms of making jobs as
well as in terms of looking for jobs. If these
men and their elders can be as aggressive
and fearless in peacetime as they were in
war, there is little to fear in the immediate
days or. years ahead. i<    '
Dean F. M. Clement.
WHAT DO the-Aggie undergraduates do
when they graduate? Well, some work in
'distilleries to make the proverbial whiskey
for the remaining Aggies. Others work ns
'street-car conductors. Others attempt to
make use of the technical knowledge gained
while attending the university. In addition,
graduates are returning each year in ever
increasing numbers to continue on postgraduate work.. #
Tl\e future of the agriculture graduate at
present Ls very bright. Research workers,
lab technicians, managers and inspectors are
iiiTciiil in relatively bi'so numbers. This
year'., nop of graduates will by no means
.satisfy the demands.
The jobs available may be divided into
three groups: industry, government service
ami private enterprise. Industry employs
many laboratory technicians, managers,
salesmen and some extension workers. The
govenunent employs research workers, extension workers and inspectors.
The possibilities of private enterprise re-
'lated to Agriculture are unlimited, for
example; canneries, freezing plants, feed and
fertilizer businesses, farm machinery agencies, lime quarries and countless others.
Farming itself is rapidly becoming a more
specialized and respected scientific business.
However the new graduate like the undergraduate is usually financially embarassed

When wo first decided that we would
like to have a paper such as this, we little

and therefore not able to enter business for
himself. Capital is not the only thing that
the new grad may lack. Practical experience
plays an equally important t;ole and may be
just as absent as eapityl. If that is ihe
case, tho new graduate would be well advised to .start on tho bottom rung of the
ladder if he has ability and shows good
judgment the possibilities for advancement
are considerable especially in the field of
technical Agriculture.
At present the wage scale and working
conditions of nttricttllnre c.raduatcs .nre no'
too satisfactory but prospects for the future
atv heller. The fonnin;; of ihe professional-
organization, the Agriculture Institute ol
Canada, is looked upon with great favor by
all graduates.
However, this nation-wide organization
will flo the graduates of tomorrow more good
than (hose who are already established. This
year witnesses the transition of (he old
Canadian Society of Technical Agriculturalists, which wa.s a relatively passive body,
as compared with the new Agriculture Institute of Canada which is very much alive.
The new organization intends to include
all graduates. In this way it will bo able to
function better in its aim for professional
status for the graduate in Agriculture.

from tho Fairview shacks to its
present location.
During tho present installation
ol army huts the work of the department has been invaluable. Tho
rapid transformation of the unused ground behind the Library
into a well-organized pattern of
huts, paths, trees, shrubs, and
law»s is a good example of the
ievements of this department.
Such changes do not occur overnight, with thc nid of a bulldozer,
all mature trees and stumps lind'
to be removed nnd thc soil levelled.
All large stones were cleared away
ond saved for later use ln an artistic rockery, stone wall and three
stone seats.
Landscape engineering plans
were next drawn up to provide a
proper* location for all walks, huts
and garden beds. Room had to
bo saved for truck service to the
Campus Cupboard. The perman-
end planting plans were drawn up
in the Horticulture office, on these
every plant is marked in its correct positiofi.
Several hundred trees, shrubs
and bulbs were used from thc
UBC plant nursery which has
been,   until   lately,   behind   the
Science Building. Some of the
planting material is over eighteen
\ear.s old anl very valuable.
Correct planting time is also of
importance and it too is controlled
by th-c department.
Owing to the lack of land space
thcro Is little scope for landscaping
among thc huts behind the Caf, ns
much as possible will be dune
nevertheless to make these shocks
more attractive.
Planting anywhere on the cam-
pas necessitates tho importation of
richer soils and fertilizers. Prof.
Buck believes that "In tho spring,
when thc campus blossoms forth
in its full beauty, student*, will
realize with gratitude and appreciation the work done by the Horticulture Department in helping to
make the UBC campus one of the
most picturesque in Canada."

THE MORNING OF B'EBRUARY 14,1946, dawned much
the same ;is mornings have since the beginning of time.
Little did we realize that today the most memorable, the
most world shaking, the most devastating event of all time,
compared to which the atomic botnb fades into the dim
recesses of oblivion, was to occur. I refer, of course to the
appearance of the first Aggie Ubyssey.
On this, the day of great rejoicing, it .seems desirable that the
dark cloud of ignorance which has
prevailed for centuries, be swept
away, allowing the light of truth
to shine where it may, casting it's
rays indiscriminately on the inoffensive Artsman. and the incorrigible Engineer alike.
With this end in view, we will
set out opon a tour of the Aggie
Building, the last refuge of the
Technical Agriculturist, intent on
giving the uninitiated an insight
into the lives of "those horrible
Aggies" as we have so erroneously
been termed.
telephone booth commonly spoken
of as the Plant Nutrition lab.
Our informal visit to the domain
of tho Aggies being over, We leave
feeling surprised and not a little
disjointed to know that there
isn't a word of truth in the stories
ahout "hawgs" and chickens being kept in the lecture rooms.
The Editor
Dear Madam:
Would someone please suggest to
the Ubyssey photographer that
one picture of a visiting artist
might be sufficient for his purpose. His itchy trigger finger was
bad enough at the Steinberg concert, but on Monday night he had
Petri's audience thoroughly exasperated with his repeated interruptions and embarassed as what
Dr. Petri must have thought of
such gauche goings-on.

Steinberg, he had previously given
full consent for all pictures.

THE PROBLEM of what to write about in this Aggie
issue of the Ubyssey is a bit of a stinker—and why the job
fell to me i.s one of the deeper more mysterious secrets of
this campus.
I could give forth with an article on the future of sport
at UBC, of the fun we can and will have in our new memorial gym, of the'spirit(s) we can build up through sports on
and off the campus. However, I shouldn't have to waste my
time and yours on a subject that's just common sense.
Sounds  Like  A Joker
But let's see where this common sense will lead us to
or how it will develop. When we get our new gym this university will be in a position to go big time in sports in a big
way—and so we should—but is that the main idea? As I
see it, that aspect is admittedly important but is really of
secondary importance. What is important is that every student should have abundant opportunities and adequate facilities to engage in sports, and not as a pastime but as one of
the phases of their education. The development of the sporting phase of the student's life can only be accomplished by
a highly developed and well controlled and supervised interfaculty sports program—on a scale far greater than what is
now practiced or is possible. By inter-faculty sports I mean
just that—teams (please note the plural) representing the
faculties. Under the present system the greatest majority
of the teams in the Inter-faculty organization are fraternity
and sorority teams. This is an unhealthy situation because
the fraternities and sororities represent only a fraction of the
total student body.
Aggies  Have The  Spirit
The war that has just so recently passed furnished adequate proof for all time on the value of incorporating sports'
training in the education of the individual, and of all individuals.
Therefore, when more facilities for sport become available'let us embark on an intensified sport-education program that will reach every Tom, Dick, Mary and Jane on the
P.S.—The other faculties on the campus could well do
to follow the lead of the Aggie faculty in this respect as win
lose or draw the Aggies have entered a team in every interfaculty sport this year (so far).

One of the CoTorefl Co-eds' outstanding long shot artists is Harriet Harmon, the smallest player

CAPTAIN SANDY—The Varsity Thunderbirds will be shooting for a share of the top
spot in the Pacific Northwest Conference tomorrow night when they entertain the Pacific
University Badgers. The two teams meet again Saturday night. And out to boost his scoring
«average will be Sandy Robertson, captain and leading scorer of the 'Birds, who popped 40
points last weekend against the Portland Pilots.
THE VARSITY THUNDERBIRDS will be gunning for their 18th and 19th wins over
the weekend, as they play host to the Pacific University Badgers currently lodged in fourth
place in the Northwest Conference loop. The games Friday and Saturday night could
mean a lot for the Badger quintet which ha.s an unimpressive string of three wins against
two losses in league competition this season, and the American crowd will probably hit Point
Grey with hopes of an upset resting on their vaunted setup plays.

And the opponents of these oversized cagers —unable for the mest

The   secretary   of   the   National

shackling these gi mts will be one
of the major points brought  up at
the    meeting    of    the    legislative
group at a meeting in New York
on   February  25  and  26.
Porter says there will be no
effort made to try tj "legislate"
the big men out of the game. But.
he adds, the committee will try to
change tho rulings so that the i
smaller mon will be more or less
on an even basis with the elongated   basketeers.
Two    proposals -• according    to
Porter — will be made against the
dominance of the big men. One is
a rule prohibiting a player from
stationing   himself   directly   uncle:
his own basket in order to set up
"Dunk Shots." The other pro-
posal calls for the establishment of
wider lane lines from the foul
circle. Also, a time limit on a
player standing in the enlarge,I

possession of the ball.
This latter ruling, says Porter,
would make players shoot from a

merely pivoting for a drop-in s»lioi.
