The Fall Ball will be staged in the Armory this year instead
of the Commodore as planned by USC if a decision reached by
Student Council Monday night is implemented.

Socialists
Face Grant
Suspension
Members of UBC's Socialist
group may face suspension of
their AMS budget unless they
"ollow Student Council ruling
that they must change their
name from the present Socialist Forum.
Councillors turned down a request
from the organization Monday night
which asked that "political club" policy be waived to permit the use of
the present name.
Council Tuled that the group must
call itself either the CCF Club or
the Socialist Club.
Tlie Socialist organization told councillors any change of name would
"narrow the scope of speakers"
brought to the campus.
Technically, the change was to have
been made by Monday, and a previous order from the Council leaves
all "political club" budgets on the
table until the order is carried out.
Councillors approved a change of
name from the Student Liberal Forum to the Student Liberal Club, an
alteration which follows Council'3
"political" policy laid down several
weeks ago.
AUS To Sponsor
Whitman Dance
Strike or no strike the Arts Undergraduate Society will sponsor a dance
to honor the visiting Whitman College gridders in The Brock on Saturday night.
Surprise entertainment will be presented by the Jokers Club under the
master of ceremonies Dick Ellis.
Frank   Nightingale's   Varsity    Orchestra will be on hand to provid
the music for what promises to be
one of the best Saturday night hops
of the year.
Dancing will be from 9 till 12 and
tickets are on sale at the AMS office,
the Quad and the Cafe. Admission
will be $1 a couple.
ed to influence council when they
vetoed the Undergraduate Societies
Committee ruling.
Jerry Macdonald claimed that the
Armory could be decorated and the
floor polished at a very low cost
and that it was the psychological
effectN of, having a cabaret type of
dance on the campus that intimidated Council members.
Taddy Knapp retorted, "My feet
are not psychological." At this
point Nora Clarke questioned her,
"Were your feet tired after Frosh
Orientation?" Taddy countered with
a quick, "You bet they were."
SOMETHING NEW
The question of holding the Fall
Ball in the Armory instead of at the
Commodore as in the past, was
brought up when Rosemary Hodgins
announced that the Undergraduate
Societies Committee was .'unwilling
to take on the responsibility of trying
something new.'
LSE chairman, Jerry Macdonald,
replied, "If USC doesnt want to do it,
LSE will and will turn in a profit of
$1,000 more than the amount received
if the dance were to be held at the
Commodore."
EXPENSIVE EVENING
"The chief reason for having the
dance in the Armory," LSE chairman claimed, "is so that we can accommodate those ex-servicemen and
their wives who cannot afford an
expensive evening at the Commodore.
At a previous meeting Student
Council passed a motion stating that
campus social functions should be
held as far as possible either in
Brock Hall or in the Armories. The
Commodore would be contrary to
Council policy."
Meanwhile, Ralph Huene, chairman of the Fall Ball Cemmittee
of USC, is protesting the council
reversal of the committee plan,
declaring that "it is unfair for
council to override the decisions of
an established committee without
first having consulted that committee."
"Although the Armory could be
made satisfactory for such an occasion, there are certain aspects which
are not in keeping with the prestige
of this important University affair
as it has been held in past years.''
he declared.
MONETARY  CONSIDERATION
"If council is intent only on the
monetary consideration then of course
their decision could be reversed only
by a mass protest by the student
body," he added.

Joker Chief Challenges
Livingstone To Combat
Jokers President Dick Ellis yesterday afternoon challenged
Grant Livingstone, president of Student Council "to personal
battle on the field of valor" at a pepmeet to be held by the
Jokers, Friday noon in the gymnasium.

'Writers' Crowd
Jabez Night Class
Popularity of Eric Nicol, instructor
for the Department of University
Extension's night class "Writing For
You" is apparently not confined to his
campus admirers.
Mr. Nicol—known today by students as 'the late Jabez",—expected
an enrolment of about 25 persons in
his course, which was to have been
a discussion group. He discovered 75
students waiting for him at the first
class October 14, in the Vancouver
Normal School.
To case the tension for Mr. Nicol,
and make it possible for all would-be
creative writers to take part, the Department has found another instructor who will share instructional and
tutorial duties.
He is Professor Bert Hughe of the
UBC Department of English, in which
Mr,  Nicol is also an instructor.
is
afraid to see me". The Joker's president said, "Several times I have gone
to the AMS office only to be informed
that Mr. Livingstone is too busy."
The Jokers, feeling they have been
done a grave injustice in the loss
of their club house, intend to champion their cause to the end.
Concluding his statement Ellis challenged council members to a basketball game to take place at Friday's
Pepmeet.
Grant Livingstone could not be
reached for comment at press time.

Missing Buses
Mystify Pubster
Another of the small mysteries that
defy solution came to light recently
when a reporter for The Daily Ubyssey interviewed pickets at the 10th
Ave. and Trimble garage of the
strikebound B.C. Electric.
When queried as to the reason for
their vigil the pickets explained that
it was merely a token gesture because buses normally used to transport UBC students were, for the
duration of the strike, locked up at
the company's Little Mountain garage.
But further investigation by the
reporter revealed that there were
buses in the Trimble building. A
company official in attendance refused to comment.
So did the pickets.

Students From Caf Table
Western hospitality overflowed Tuesday for Canada's Number One student, a quiet French-Canadian from Montreal.
A chorus of exhuberant students, 2000 strong, greeted
touring Maurice Sauve, president of the National Federation
of Canadian University Students, with a rousing "Hail UBC"
and "Allouette" when he happened on singing "Greeks" in the
campus cafeteria.

Patrolmen Warn
Student Drivers
Harassed traffic patrolmen ask students to observe the following warnings during the street car strike.
1. Use the Chancellor Boulevard
approach as much as possible to eliminate congestion at University Boulevard and the main Mall.
2. Park your car a little more carefully so as to permit as many cars
as possible to use the lots.
3. Lock your motorcycle or bicycle
as patrolmen will not be responsible
for the loss of any hike that is unlocked.
4. Do not let students off too close
to the flrehydrant at the corner of
Brock road and the main Mall.

Col. Merritt will speak on "The Dollar Crisis".
in
which the student from the University of Montreal had outlined) the
program of the NFCUS, a delegation
led by Grant Livingstone, president
of the AMS took Sauve on a tour
of the Cafeteria.
CELEBRATION
The sounds of the fraternities celebrating the end of rushing with renditions of their songs had penetrated
the meeting and prompted President
N.A.M. MacKenzie to remark that
"the place downstairs is by far the
oddest place on the campus. I think
that Maurice should see it."
The sight of a lone man standing
atop one of the tables brought silence
to the cafeteria where only seconds
before 2,000 people had been singing
and yelling at the tops of their voices.
When Sauve began to address the
group in his native French, the whole
group spontaneously broke into a
stirring rendition of "Alouette",
which the Easterner led.
SAME SPEECH
After the roar of approval, Sauve
who is here on a national speaking
tour, delivered the same speech which
he had previously given upstairs.
"Chief aim of the NFCUS is to
assist students to be of value to
their community" the speaker declared,
Fostering exchanges with American
students, publishing a quarterly
magazine for Canadian students, and
raising a $100,000 scholarship fund
are other activities of the group,
he stated.
Sauve pointed to the successful
campaigns conducted by NFCUS to
secure reduced railfares which he
said took seven years to complete.
At present the organization is
working to eliminate the unemployment insurance deductions from students' summer pay checks.
Livingstone
Berates
Caf dingers
The students who stayed away in
droves from the NFCUS meeting
Tuesday were subjected to a tirade
from AMS President Grant Livingstone.
"I am very disappointed that the
crowd downstairs in the caf is not
here in the auditorium," declared
Livingstone over a chorus of fraternity songs, arising from below. *1t
shows a great lack of spirit. However," he added, turning to Maurice
Sauve, NFCUS president, "you will
find that the students who take an
interest in NFCUS affairs are all
here."
German Students
Ask Cooperation
Students of Friedrich-Schiller University, Jena, Germany (Russian zone)
are making an effort to re-establish
their International Studenrat (Council of Students).
In a dispatch to the Daily Ubyssey,
Helmuth Segeth, Studenrat officer in
charge of relations with the British
Commonwealth of Nations said he
hoped that UBC students would give
their utmost co-operation.
Segeth'states that his group would
be very interested, in receiving «*-
torial opinions and correspondence
from Canadian University students.
He feels that this would give them
an insight into the life and interests
of students in this country.
All correspondence should be directed to:
Helmuth, Segeth,
Jena,  Ernst-Abbe-Str.  8,
Russian-zone of Germany.
I am strong in my belief that this
is another step for mutual understanding. It is the wish of the students of
eastern Germany to establish and
maintain hearty and friendly relations with your western universities.
That is why I hope to be just a little
bit successful," he declared.
Council Enforces
Travel Rulings
A faculty crack-down on student
travelling for games, and conferences
was revealed at Student Council
meeting Monday night.
The Faculty Committee on Student
Affairs outlined their requirements
in a letter received by the Literary
and Scientific Executive yesterday.
They advised the LSE that all undergraduate organizations proposing to
travel outside of Greater Vancouver,
must first obtain the permission of
the Faculty Council's president. In
addition, they stated that all women
students proposing to travel must
report in person to the Dean of Women before leaving the campus.
PROCEDURE
In order to fulfill these regulations
the following procedure is to be
followed by all organizations desiring
to travel.
A typewritten memorandum of the
names of those members of the organization expecting to make the trip
should be submitted in triplicate to
the council at least one week before
the scheduled time of departure. One
copy of this list will be returned to
the organization and the remaining
copies placed on file with the chairman of the FCSA and the secretary
of the Faculty Council.
RADSOC PRESIDENT FLIES
TO PRAIRIE CONFERENCE
Ernest Perrault, president of the University Radio Society
will attend the second annual conference of the Western
Universities Radio Federation to be held in Saskatoon this
weekend.
Organized last year the federation,
known as the "WURF' brought together the student radio groups of
the four western provinces.
At that time, according to Perrault,
it was too late to initiate any of the
planned federation functions or services.
"However,' he said, "I am prepared
to attack a meaty agenda at this
conference."
"I feel that without facilities now
under construction and our present
club setup, UBC can play an important role in the consolidation of this
new organization."
At the present time Saskatchewan
is the president of the Federation,
It will be decided at the conference
where the rotating presidency will go
next.
LARGEST ITEM
Largest single item on the agenda
will be the establishment of a radio
network linking the four western
universities.
Another aim of the conference is
the organization of an exchange service of scripts written by university
students for presentation on each individual campus.
Coupled with this is the proposed
plan for the transcription of univers-
<S>-
ity plays and events of general interest.
This system would be further amplified by a pooling of ideas and
educational  radio  programs.
There is planned also an inter-
university news service in addition
to a WURF Bulletin, the official
organ of the Federation.
RADIO DRAMA
To Perrault, himself an accomplished radio script writer and a budding
playwright, discussions on a Radio
Drama Festival will be of particular
interest.
Embryo plans call for each of the
four western universities to submit
a completely student play over the
network next spring.
Discussion of other individual programs such as a roundtable discussion
featuring a different university each
week will round out the already
crowded agenda.
According to Perrault, the general
purpose of the conference is:
"through the medium of the radio
to cement relations between the four
western universities to bring the
role of the university before the public in a practical and attractive
manner." PAGE 2

SEE HERE, MR. CANAVAN
That university students are free, white
and twenty-one would appear to be a point
Mr. Pete Canavan overlooked when he pointed the finger of shame at UBC last Thursday
after finding several students employed at the
strikebound Stock Exchange building.
Mr. Canavan, as business agent for the
striking Building Service Employees' Union
(AFL), lodged the complaint with Grant Livingstone and with the administration, requesting that they do something about it.
We feel that Mr. Canavan's request is an
unreasonable one. If four members of the
United Church robbed a bank, the bank
officials could scarcely level criticism at the
church, could they Mr. Canavan?
If the student strikebreakers had been
supplied by the University Employment Bureau there may have been a case- The six
students who did the janitorial work several
evenings secured the jobs entirely on their
own. They were acting as individuals . . . not
as students.
With this in view it is difficult to'understand how the university administration or
the AMS can reasonably be held responsible
for the behaviour of students in their off-
campus time.
We heartily etgree with Mr. Canavan
that anyone who deliberately accepts employment where a union is staging a legal (Bill
39) strike is certainly acting unjustly.
We deplore the matter, but why the
university, Mr- Canavan?
The Children's Hour
By LES BEWLEY
Today, moved by the horrified cries of
our readers, we reluctantly abandon our
pokings into the tender viscera of the weekly
press, and turn to other and more sordid
subjects. This is known as jumping out of the
frying pan into the fire-
Because we propose to deal with a particularly choice bit of nonsense, we confidently await the screams that we are discussing
nonsense. Well, of course. It is all stuff,
drivel and nortsense. It wouldn't be discussed
here, if it were not.
The particular nonsense we have in mind
today is the arrant and somewhat fractious
nonsense of one Mr. Colin Cameron, provincial president of the CCF party, who addressed a meeting on the campus last week under
the auspices of the student Socialist Forum.
UNOBJECTIONABLE
One part of Mr. Cameron's speech, at
least, was unobjectionable. That was his allegation that the lumber barons are stripping
the forest resources of this province for
purposes of private profit and material gain.
No objection, surely, can be taken to this
statement- Mr. Cameron could say nothing
else; for no man in his right mind would
plunge out into the great beyond and saw
down forest giants merely for purposes of
his health. Or for fun.
Mr. Cameron's distaste for lumber barons should not, however, be taken for a deep
loathing of royalty. It is nothing of the sort.
You see, Mr. Cameron calls some men barons
only that the rest of us will feel like peasants.
This enables him to cash in on the ancient
hatred that we peasants hold for the drunken,
lecherous old man on the hill who demands,
in slurred, wet accents, the right of the first
turnip, the first night and the first-born.
What really interests us, though, is Mr.
Cameron's bland assurance that any man
who "accepts" a university education and
then leaves the country, is nothing more
than—these are Mr. Cameron's words—"a
common cheat."
Well, well, well.
Nothing could be more indicative of Mr.
Cameron's peculiar frame of mind than that
word "accept".
POUR MILE RUN
Dear us. Someone had better tell the man
that one accepts a university education as
one accepts a four-mile run. In short, you
don't "accept" the damned thing at all. You
earn it. You put your head down, start running, and work for it- And unless you have
more influence with the Bursar than we
think you have; you also pay good hard
money, or contribute war service, for it.
Not so, says Mr. Cameron. The farmer,
the miner, the fisherman and the logger are
your "patrons". Ipse dixit. If you desert your
patrons you are a low bum, indeed.
For charity's sake, let us assume that
Mr. Cameron is incapable of distinguishing
a patron from a taxpayer. The taxpayer pays
taxes- The Legislature grants an annual sum
to the university. Not in tomatoes. Not in logs.
Not in fish. In money.
If you want to be romantic about it,
though, you might say that makes the taxpayer a "patron" of the arts and sciences.
So he is. He is a patron, also of the city
sewage and water systems, the garbage collection service and Oakalla Jail.
But not even Mr- Cameron would be
damfool enough to suggest (with equal logic)
that any citizen who drank water, had his
ashes removed, or graduated from Oakalla,
should be prevented from exercising his
rights as a free citizen in leaving forever
these sources of supply.
And not even Mr, Cameron would
brand, as a "common cheat" the boy who
finally grows up and leaves the mother who
conceived him, gave him birth, suckled, bathed and dressed him.
Which leads us to the conclusion that
what Mr. Cameron is urging upon his listeners is not political morals, but political infantilism. Well, he is qualified.
STRANGE PHILOSOPHY
This is a strange philosophy. And it
makes us think, somehow of the fifteen hapless Englishmen who wait in vain for their
fifteen Soviet brides, because the Soviet
super-state decrees that too many valuable
kopecks have been invested in their fifteen
womanly bodies, to make their departure
economically and politically desirable.
Politically desirable- Oh, God. Never
mind the love of man and woman. Forget the
unpolitical loyalties of the human heart and
the human soul. The question is—have we
got our money's worth out of them?
NOT SO
It was not always so, in this world. The
centuries past knew men who, accepting an
education in their native lands, were common
enough to leave their homes and employ
their skills elsewhere—to our own great,
good fortune.
We live in the new world, freed from
ancient tyrannies, because of them. Christopher Columbus, the Genoaese, left his home
to work for Isabella of Spain. So did the
Portugese Magellan.
John Cabot, the Florentine, was common
cheat enough to work for England. Erasmus,
John Calvin—and Marx and Engels, too-
That list also includes Mrs. R. P. Steeves,
who, under Mr. Cameron, is first vice-president of the CCF in this province. Born in
Holland, and graduating from the University
of Leydn with an LLD degree, she became
by Mr. Cameron's mad yardstick, a common
cheat the day she left her native land for
Canada. Without, of course, Mr. Cameron's
permission-
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Charge . . .
Editor,
The Daily Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Last year, during the drive for funds
for the Memorial Gymnasium, circulars were distributed to most of the
weeklies in B.C. urging support for
the drive. Some of the weekly newspapers felt the cause worthy enough
to warrant an editorial in its support.
The Courtenay-Comox Argus was one
such newspaper. (Naturally the editorial was without benefit of syntax
or studded with its due amount of
commas). However, it reached a lot
of  people in  that  district.
I would venture to say, however,
that circulars concerning UBC will
probably not receive such consideration. Naturally, it would be because
the Courtenay-Comox Argus feared
to have its lack of syntax and sparci-
ty of comas again brought to Mr.
Bewley's attention.
Mr. Bewely probably fails to realize
that weekly newspapers do not maintain a staff to polish their prose but
are mainly concerned with distributing local news to people who are
interested in its contents, not its commas.
Peter G. Hughes
In Or Out?
The Editor,
Sir:
A recent edition of The Daily Ubyssey does not make it quite clear
whether the Varsity Outdoor Club
has been evicted from clubroom
headquarters along with the Jokers
Club, or whether the Jokers moved
out so that the Outdoor Club could
move In.
What I want to know is this: Is the
Varsity Outdoor Club indoors or is it
outdoors? If it is indoors, why should
it be? I believe in clubs practicing
what their names imply, What possible objection could the Outdoor
Club take to being outdoors?
All last winter I was perplexed by
paradoxical notices which appeared
from time t'o time on blackboards,
informing members of the Varsity
Outdoor Club that the club would
meet at noon that day "in Arts 100."
What could be more incongruous
than the Varsity Outdoor Club meeting indoors, unless possibly it was a
Varsity Indoor Club meeting regularly in the botanical gardens?
If political clubs are being made to
adopt names appropriate to their
activities, why should other organizations not be made to adopt activities
appropriate to their names?

NOTICE
. . . Reply
Dear Sir:
Mr. Hughes, as is his right, takes
us to task for our recent comments
upon the editorial content of the
Comox -Courtenay "Argus" which
paper, incidentally, is published by
Mr. Ben Hughes.
While we have no quarrel with the
writer of the letter, we do feel impelled to remind him to the following
facts:
(1) The Alma Mater Society is not
responsible or in any way accountable for the opinions expressed by
contributors to the Ubyssey.
(2) Under those circtimstances, it is
rather unfair to suggest that the Alma
Mater Society should be made to
suffer by an implied future non-
support of the War Memorial Fund,
or other AMS activities.
(3) To suggest such retribution is
to suggest that the Alma Mater Society shouud censor any form of
criticism which may not be liked by
those from whom it seeks support.
This is something the AMS cannot
do; and should not be asked to do.
(4) The "Argus" itself, as a newspaper, will undoubtedly be the first
to object to this form of advertiser-
control over free (and well-meant)
criticism.
Les Bewley.
Weasel Talk
Dear Sir:
I read with some astonishment the
letter of Murray D. Bryce, who protests that your are wrong in asserting
that members of the Students Socialist Forum "are disavowing the
CCF".
Bryce claims (1) that the members
of the forum do not disavow the CCF;
(2) that in spite of that they do not
wish to become a CCF club, preferring to retain the Student Socialist title because "that name honestly
and clearly states the political philosophy in which we are interested";
(4) that admittedly the club has invited as speakers five prominent CCF
parliamentarians, and representatives
from no other parties; but in spite of
all that they decline to adopt the CCF
name.
Mr. Editor, that is weasel talk, and
there is too much similar weasel
talk in campus politics.
For instance, we have on the campus a Communist (now LLP) club,
hard by, and in addition, we have
the Social Problems Club, which has
an admitedly Communist president.
What is this, hide and seek?

DVA OFFICIALS
DENY RUMOR
For the benefit of veterans who believe that they must apply for re-
establishment credits before the end
of the year, DVA officials announce
that' application for credits can be
made anytime within ten years of
discharge.
Officials point out that the misunderstanding has arisen from the
fact that December 31, 1947 is the deadline for vocational and educational
training and, in most instances, for
'awaiting returns' applications.

Robinson Wins
Cricket 'Blue*
by LES BULLEN
One of UBC's most famous athletic
sons and 1940 Rhodes Scholar, Basil
Robinson, this summer achieved the
great distinction of becoming the first
Canadian ever to be awarded his
"blue" for cricket at Oxford.
A cricket "blue" at Oxford or
Cambridge is perhaps the most coveted university athletic award in the
British Commonwealth. In winning it,
Basil reached the brightest point yet
in his brilliant sports career.
Basil was an outstanding member
of four crack teams: North Shore
United, Dominion soccer champions
in 1938; Varsity's famous rugger team
of 1938 (the "wonder" team of Major
Dobble); the B.C. Junior Cricket team
of 1939, which swept the Inter-Provincial Junior Cricket Championships
held in Vancouver; and in 1940, the
Varsity XI, Mainland League champions.
Picking up his Rhodes Scholarship
at Oxford last Fall, Basil played soccer and rugger for his college during
the winter term, and in April turned
out for the cricket trials, along with
scores of cricket hopefuls from England, South Africa, Australia, India,
New  Zealand,   in  fact  from  nearly

Homecoming Day this year will be
held on Saturday, November the
first.
Homecoming Day - the day that
the alumni return to the scene of
their crimes - the day that the University is thrown open to the public
in general - the day that old friends,
and new will meet in the Brock Hall
for the Homecoming Dance.
SPORTS PLANNED
But most important to the Sport's
page of this edition, it will be the
day that perhaps the American football team will break into the win
column and that the fans will have
their first chance to see this year's
TTiunderbird basketball club in action.
If you are a sports fan this will
surely be a BIG day for you. Whether
student or grad, there will be thrills
a-plenty in store for you.
The gridmen have been taking some
pretty awful beatings at the hands of
other universities, at other universities. That is, of course, if we believe all we read. But this will be
a home game and the crowd is in
store for a sight of hard-driving,
hard-hitting football.
PIONEERS HERE
The team our entry will meet on
the field of battle will be the Lewis
and Clarke "Pioneers". These boys
have been playing fairly well this
year but lt still may be UBC's chance
Do win.
LETTER TO THE EDITOR
everywhere in the Empire.
Although Basil is no slouch when v   *">• **m>  as we«  as *"»  whole
it comes to batting, it was his fine
off-spin bowling and brilliant fielding
which finally won him his place on
the Oxford XI against such stiff competition.
After several trial matches on the
famous Parks Ground at Oxford, in
which his best batting performance
was 51 against Lancashire, he was
chosen to go on tour for two weeks
as one of 14, from whom the 11 would
be chosen for the match against Cambridge, and the winning of the covet-
td "blue".
All Oxford's matches were against
1st Div. Country teams, the "Big
League" in English cricket, and in
these games Basil turned in some neat
bowling performances, to clinch his
position on the XI,
Against Worchester he took 6 wickets for 55 runs, 4 for 34 vs the M.C.C.,
2 for 15 against Middlesex, and 4 for
150 against the touring South African
Test Team, one of his victims being
Melville, the S. A. skipper. Finally
in the Cambridge match itself, he
took 4 for 51, a magnificent performance.
UBC 'is proud of you, Basil and
especially the Varsity Cricket Club is
University, was sorry to hear of Joe
Fairleigh's bad luck at Salem. That
they will miss him from the line-up
there is no doubt, but they will still
be trying hard out there on the field.
Game time is 2:30 in the Stadium
and regular prices will be charged.
(50 cents - student rush)
But if you lean towards indoor
sports and are not the "outdoorsey"
type, there will be a fast and furious
basketball game for you in the evening.
GRADS VS BIRDS
The Grads, starring such prominent mellonmen as Ron Weber, Harry
Franklin, Sandy Robertson, Hunk
Henderson, and a lot of others, almost the 'Loma club intact, will meet
the Birds at 9:00 in the UBC Gymnasium. Hornet player of last year,
Reg Clarkson, is not expected to be
in strip because of an injured hand.
BIRDS READY
The Birds will be pretty well stocked and ready for anything the Grads
have got to offer.
The team will be composed of Nev
Munroe, "Bobbin' Bobby" Scarr, Pat
McGeer, Bob Haas, Veteran Harry
Kermode,    "Long   John"    Forsythe,
extremely happy that one of the' Gord>' Selman, Dave Campbell,
founders of the club has achieved "Smllin' Jimmy" McLean, and Jerry
such distinction in playing "the finest
game yet devised by the wit of man."
New Basketball
Timetable Ready
Here is the latest men's basketball
schedule. There was one posted last
week but "there have been some
changes made." This one is really
definite.
A copy of this list has been posted
in the hall of the gymnasium.

Two newcomers to this year's team
will be out for the game. They are
Reid Mitchell, winner of last year's
"Most Valuable Player" award for
his work on the Chiefs, and "Big
Bill" Bell, Inter A ball player for
Varsity last year.
STUDENT EFFORT
Both the football and basketball
games will be thrillers from start to
finish. This Homecoming program
will give the students of UBC a chance
to show the public that they are one
hundred percent behind their Collegiate entries, win or lose.
We really need a big student attendance on Homecoming Day, Let':-
have it.

Femme Swim Club
Signs NeWiCoach
The feminine edition of the UBC
Swim Club will enter its own this
coming season with the announcement from the Department of Physical Education that the girls will have
their own coach.
Queen of the 1947 mermaids will
be Miss Hazel Smith, a congenial
dark-eyed third year Arts student
who returns to UBC for the second
time.
Commenting on the new situation
which will deprive him of his duties
as nstructor in women's swimming,
Assstant Athletic Director Doug
Whittle confided to your press.
"Ifs a big weight of my shoulders.
I admit that coaching the girls was
fun, but my wife was so suspicious."
KNOWS SWIMMING
Miss Smith knows her swimming.
She has been engaged in competitive
aquatics since she was 17 and holds
several records in BC and PNA
Championships over the 50 and 100
yd distances.
While a photographer in the Wrens,
she organized a water pageant comprising the efforts of grils who were
entirely devoid of aquatic knowledge before she took over their
coaching.
Miss Smith plans to feature both
competitive and display swimming
in her classes this year, and there is
a possibility of a display before the
public next spring.
Classes are held every Monday
night from 9:30 to 10:30 atthe Crystal
Pool.
BOXING
There will be an  important meeting of the Boxing Club today at 12:30
in Arts 102. All interested please attend,   Plans  for  an   inter-club .meet I IVOR WYNNE
will be discussed.
Dave Campbell, and Gord Selman.
All of these boys are experienced
melomasters and are expected to
make a good showing.
Rookies added to the team this
year are Reid Mitchell and Bill Bell
who turned in a very creditable pre-
formance at last Friday's Frosh-Soph
hoop tilt.
November 28-29 will see the 'Birds in
Eugene Oregon playing the University of Oregon in an invitation
series. This annual tournament last
year saw the Birds succumb 88-41
and 73-37. However, last year was
another story, and the squad which
UBC will be sending on the floor
next November will be all out to
rock Oregon back on its collective
heels with power.
The first home game of the Blue
and Gold squad will be played on
November 1, when the 'Bird-Grad
classic will be staged. The student
quintet managed to nose out the
grads last year by a score of 37-35.
As for this season, it's anybody's
guess.
ALL BUT WEBER
From what can be seen from recent
practices, the entire Thunderbird
team from last year will be returning
to the maples with the exception of
he diminuive captain of last year's
aggregation, Ron Weber.
Reid Mitchell, who has been added
to the squad this year, has come up
from the Chiefs, the Senior A quintet on which he was high scorer before he was forced to retire due to
injury.
Bill Bell, is a lofty pivot man from
the Inter A soph team of last year
which went on to take the provincial  championship.
. . . 'mural boss
Dear Mr. Editor:
Some rather broad statements were
made by a Mr. Hunter in a lengthy
editorial on the Sports Page of last
Wednesday's issue. Mr. Hunter seems
to have been influenced by the rather
sketchy and baseless observation of
a certain downtown sports columnist
who is an avid supporter of the
Canadian code. Mr. Greg Kabat has
a few different views and may be
said to carry a little weight when
speaking of either game. Mr. Kabat
was an Ail-American guard for Wisconsin at one time is said to have
been offered a job coaching the
Detroit Lions, Mr, Kabat further
distinguished himself by some brainy
quarterbacking for the Wnnipeg Blue
Bombers in his day.
So that when a self-confessed
"non-expert" takes the liberty of
taking exception to certain of Mr.
Rabat's opinions on a comparison of
the two codes, readers may rightly
feel that Mr. Hunter is wading in
a little too far.
Mr. Hunter claims that the sweeping "end runs" of Mr. Glenn Davis
of Army's 1946 squad, prove that end
runs are effective under the American code. Anyone who has followed
Army's victory stretch by radio during the past four years knows that
Mr. Davis ran up his yardage either
through off-tackle plays or running
through a broken field and had very
little to do with end sweeps. I wish
to offer a few figures, which upon
reflection, would seem to show that
Davis cannot prove Mr, Hunter's
point,
Ini total offence last year, '*Mr
Davis gained 712 yards rushing and
396 yards passing for a total of 1108
yards. This average as good enough
to rank him tenth among the top
offensive backs. But the top man
was a Mr, Mackrides of Nevada who
lost 70 yards rushing but gained 1254
yards passing for a total 1184 yards.
A Mr. Layne from Texas tossed 77
passes for 1122 yards and gained 338
yards rushing and a Mr. Harry Gilmer had a habit of running back
punts; 37 of them for 436 yards! How
much of Mr. Davis' 712 yards was
picked up on "end sweeps" is unknown, but he was thrown for a total
loss of 123 yards through the season
and ranked second in this respect
being surpassed only by Tidwell of
Auburn. Undoubtedly the first class
Army line missed the odd block on
the odd "end sweep".
The above would seem to indicate
that order forms of offense are far
more effective than rushing. This is
of course far from truth. Even IF Mr.
Davis had picked up half of his
yardage on "end sweeps," the capabilities of an individual player cannot be the basis for the rule. If another budding "Davis" should turn
out for practices under Coach Kabat
AND if the blockers should suddenly
blossom into Pooles and Folbergs
and Tuckers, then perhaps Mr. Kabat
might make an exception and run the
odd "end sweep". The Canadian
code, on the other hand, is conducive to end-round plays with back-
Joker Hoop Team
To Meet Council
The maples of the gymnasium floor
are in for a terrific beating this
Friday if the members of the newly
organized Jokers Club have anything
to say in the matter. The gym is to
be the scene of proposed Basketball
game with the members of the Council out to defend their decision concerning the Jokers club.
The big battle is all part of a Joker
pep meet that will take place at
12:30 in the gym. The Jokers feel
that they have a moral right to take
over the Brock Hall, or at least the
offices at present occupied by the
Council.
In announcing the game, Ace
Joker Ellis has given the line-up that
will take the floor for the honour
of the Pack. They expect to have
Dick Pen, Norm Watt, Bruce Thompson, Perth Webster, Dick Ellis, and
possibly, according to rumour, the
Levy  Brothers may  even be out.
In his statement concerning the
outcome of the game, Ace Joker
Dick Ellis said, "We'll be pulling
plenty of tricks out of the deck and
wc hope to lose the Council in the
shuffle.
Tlie Jokers feel that it is only
right to caution tho fans that it might
be a rough tilt as they expect to score
a few baskets with the Council Members making the trip through the hoop
themselves.
It's all part of the big pop meet
on Friday at 12:30 in the gym. The
Jokers arc in action again.
field motion giving plenty of time
for beefy fullbacks to wind up and
follow 4 or 5 blockers.
The general attitude seems to be
that the Thunderbirds cannot play
a good game and lose. Mr. Hunter
makes a point of this when he mentions his opinion of Mr. Rabat's remarks to the effect that "the boys
looked a lot better out there (Bellingham) than at any other previous
time". Did Mr. Hunter really expect us to win that game? UBC must
have been playing pretty well defensively to keep the score down to
32-0! It is sometimes surprising just
how deceptive a score can be when
considered in the light of the play
on the field. We've got a green
team and it will take time; the same
time that every other team has taken
0 reach the top.
As an example of how a score can
deceive, just scan the following figures   on    the    Wisconsin-California
game which took place last week:
First   downs 13 10
Net   yards   rushing      325 335

ED. NOTE—(The following Is Al
Hunter's reply to above letter).
While many of your statements are
well taken, I feel that I must take
exception to certain of them. Your
point re Glen Davis and end runs
makes it clear to me that in this
respect I was in error.
However, I cannot accept your inference that I was influenced by the
observations of a "certain downtown
sports columnist". If you will read
again the article in question I believe
you will find that I took exception
to statements made by both Mr.
Kabat and Mr. McConnell. I fail
to see any instance in which I was
"influenced" by either.
Also, I was slightly confused by
certain of your statements concerning
the relative records of the best American halfbacks. You claim that the
"top" man was a "Mr. Mackrides of
Nevada" who gained a net total of
1148 yards. Yet in the next sentence
you state that Layne, from Texas,
gained a net total of 1460 yards. I
am afraid I do not follow your line
of reasoning.
In your statement, "The general
attitude seems to be that the Thunderbirds cannot play a good game
and lose", you are obviously referring to my attitude; again I take
exception. If you will check the
sport page of the Daily Ubyssey for
Tuesday, October 7, I believe you will
find that I gave the Thunderbirds
considerable credit for their showing
against  College  of  Puget  Sound.
From your statements regarding
the Bellingham game and the accompanying yardstick of the Wisconsin-
California match it would appear
that you did not witness the contest
in Bellingham.
In case you are laboring under
the delusion that the Thunderbird
record in Bellingham was comparable to that of Western Washington,
1 would ask you to refer to the official yardstick of the game, published
in the Ubyssey of October 15.
Lastly, I have heard of no law
concerning the "Divine right of football coaches" and therefore feel that
I, or anyone else who so desires, is
at perfect liberty to take exception
to remarks made by same. I maintained, and I still maintain, that the
'Birds were not up to par in their
match  with Western Washington.
Whittle Working
Senior A Entry
Coach Doug Whittle is really
beginning to give his Senior A
boys the well-known "works".
With the Senior A circut getting
under way in the first of November,
time runs short to work out the fini-
ishing touches on  the  team.
Some two dozen aspirants have
been present at the frequent practices in the last two weeks. Prospects
for the entry appear to be pretty
good.
Foremost among those turning out
are Gord Broadhead, of last year's
Chiefs, Art Phillips and Rob Abcr-
crombie of Dunbar Inter B. Trev
Shaw and Gord Blake from Varsity
Inter A.
"The team will be composed of 12
men. It will be picked just before
our first game in November," says
Chuck Marshal], Chief manager.
"Till then, who knows?"
