VANCOUVER, B. C, TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 1950
No. 54
POLICE URGE DRIVERS TO
USE FORT CAMP ROAD
Students approaching the university on South-west
Marine Drive are urged to avoid the Main Mall because of
tiie danger of traffic jams, Provincial Police warned today.
They are urged to continue on Marine Drive to the Fort
Camp entrance <to the University and use parking lots on
the north sector of the campus.
Last few hundred cars using Univeristy Boulevard
have been late for lectures because of traffic jams. Jam Up
has been caused by the closing off of Chancellor Boulevard
for the past two weeks.
Brotherhood Can't Be
Legislated Claims McNeil
"Wt can't legislate people into
brotherhood but we can, by legislation, establish standards," Grant
McNeil, director of Vancouver Public
Research Bureau, told a gathering
representing five campus clubs Friday.
Members of CLU, SCM. and UN,
CCF, and LPP clubs met to hear
Mr. McNeil speak on "A Bill of Rights

that they will pay out $700 and Khe
Administration will furnish the remainder.
for B.C."
Speaker commendefl those present
on their active support of the proposed bill. What is needed, he said, is
not merely a declaration of rights,
but penalties under law established
against discriminatory practices.
Mr. McNeil cited several cases from
his own experience showing the "deep-
rooted prejudices" existing in Canada.
As honorary secretary of security
commission for evacuating the Japanese from B.C., he found no Japanese attempt at sabotage.
"The real reason for the evacuation," he said, "was fear of overt
action en the part of the white population."
Hotel owners who discriminate
against Negros, he said, do so from
fear of Vheir customers' prejudices.
Many trade unions have found it
necessary to include clauses against
discrimination in their constitutions.
"In a democracy such as ours," he
concluded, "we must be most vigilant,
because from petty prejudices springs
tyranny.''
Concert Features Work
Of Canadian Composer
Fresh on the heels of her latest
musical triumph as winner of a CBC
song-writing contest comes the presentation of four works by Canadian
composer Jean Coulthard Adams in
UBCs Brock Lounge tomorrow night

Music lovers will have the opor-
tunlty to hear four of the composer's
best works played and sung by some
of Vancouver's outstanding artists.
Mrs. Adams ls at present on the
staff of the Universitys Department
of Music, dividing her time between
lectures, the management of her home
and musical composition.
Her prize-winning Canadian song,
a musical frame-work for one of
Earle Birney's poems is but one example of her prolific and highly
imaginative methods.
the program tomorrow evening will
will Include Sonata for Piano, played
by Frances Marr; Sonata for Oboe
and Piano, played by Oboist Louis
Rale and Pianist Norma Abernethy;

they are dressed.
Tickets priced at 60c per person are
on sale at the AMS office and from
Dance Club executive.
Superintendent Claims Students
Running Cars Can Afford to Pay
Provincial government will make no move to amend the
Motor Vehicle Act so that out-of-province students attending
UBC may be exempt from paying a license fee.
George A. Hood, superintendent of*
motor-vehicles in a letter to Attorney
General Gordon Wismer^ who received
a brief from Student Council recently, stated, "It seems to me the general
attitude of the other provinces herein
is that it is not imperative for students to operate motor-vehicles and
if they can afford to operate motor-
vehicles it would follow that they
can also afford to pay a license fee
for the operation of the same."
PROTESTS
Compiling of a brief was instigated
last year when an American student
attending UBC protested that B. C.
Police had told him he would have
to obtain B.C. license plates for his
car.
Basis for his complaint, he stated,
was the fact that out-of-state students
in the U.S. are not forced to take
out licenses
university.
Brief, prepared by Coordinator of
Activities George Cumming, asked
that the government change Section
VII of the Motor-Vehicles Act, which
states that any vehicle brought into
E.C. for a period of more than six
months must be registered with the
B. C. Motor Vehicles Branch.
NOT REQUIRED TO REGISTER
Referring to the American student's
complaint, Mr. Hood stated, "any non-
if  they are  attending
resident operating a foreign-pleasure
motor-vehicle in California, which
bears a valid license. of the place
of residence of the owner, is not required to register the same in Call*
forma unless he accepts gainful employment or uses such motor-vehicle
for the transportation of persons or
property for compensation or primarily for the transportation of property."
This would have no bearing In
connection with special privileges for
students, the superintendent stated.
The brief had asked that reciprocal
arrangements with other motor-vehicle branches be made in other provinces and in the U.S. so that nonresident students might be exempted.
BETTER GROUNDS
The department, Mr. Hood stated,
receives requests for license exemption from persons and organizations
engaged in charitable groups and
church work, and it is not their policy
to grant their requests although it
seems they have better grounds than
students.
Mr. Wismer and Minister of Edu-
| cation W. T. Straith both wrote Cumming that they were interested in the
brief and promised to contact Mr.
Hood.

In Chem Building
UBC Home of so Celled 'hot. Lsb'
Atoms are virtually engraving photographic plates in the Atomic Research laboratory at UE'C.
On the third floor of UBC's Chemistry Building there is a small room
containing an array of equipment resembling a short wave radio st'ation.
At a glance there is troth ir g that would
excite a v''.sit",r. But this is called the
"Hdt iab"—and it is hot hot in every
sense of the word.
Prominent in the room is a small
lead casket containing art innocent
array of bottles, and testubes. As the
scierltist lifts the lid of the box a
monitor needle which indicates radio
activity leaps—the contents are radio
active,
In 'three minutes the scienter, has
absorbed all the radio active waves
he can safely stand for the next 24
hours.
Dr. Gilbert Hooley, of the department of Chemistry and a leading radio
active researcher puts a feeling of ease
on the situation!.
"This   is   the   only   labortary,"   he
.«aid, "in the province authorized  by j
Chalk River to carry on  radio active j
chemical research with r.he quantities i
of material  exceeding  an   activity   of
one milllcurie. Incidentally, the milli-
curie  is  a   measure  of   radio  activity !
equal to 1.10,000 of an ounce of radium."
Chalk Rivers stamp of approval
came only after a meticulous inspen -
ion of facilities bad been made. Walls,
tables and furniture had to be sprayed
with a special plastic palint that can
be peeled off when it has become sal -
united wi'h radioactive material.
Floors and ceilings were specially
treated to prevent deep penetration
by radioacti ve particles. A special
ventilation system was installed to
carry away injurious vapors. A system
of waste disposal that entails careful
collection of all radioacl ive waste and
its subsequent disposal far out at sea
had to be approved as d1 d the two-inch
thick lead casket that holds 'he supplv
of radioactive isotopes. Finally all
personnel chosen to work in the laboratory had to be approved by Chalk
River officials. Four of the scientist's,
Dr. Hooky, Dr. M. Kirsch, Dr. S. H.
Zbarsky and Dr. L. W. Shemilt, have
spent periods of time at the Chalk
River operations, gaining experience
fir- hand in the very heart of Canada's atomic research program.
Radioactiivity is a bmnd n.-w tool—
sc new in fact that means :>f applying
ii.tit practically are still Ithe subject of
■intensive   study   and   research.   UBC
scientists have set themselves a number of major tasks both i:i t'.he field
of applied research and in pure research projects that have no direct
application to industry at the present
'time.
One cf UBC's most proficient authorities on the rare? elements, Dr. J.
A. Harris, is studying more efficient
methods to extract uranium from
■pi'lehblend—a process which at the
prerent time is both expensive and
wasteful. *
Dr. Zbarsky is a biochemist concerned with the effect of poison gases
on human tissues.
During the war an ant'de'e for
Lewisite poisoning was discovered.
The exact function of this r.iticV.e
is not kt'own and further insight into
its action could lead to improved methods 'of treatment.
Dr. Zbarsky, working with radio-,
active sulphur, a component of the
antidote, hopes ito study the effect of
the compound as it works in livi-;?
tissue. He will trace its action by
means of that now famous tool of
the a.'.omic .■jiceiitist—tho Geiger Counter.
Dr. Hooley, an oceanographer, Dr.
J.  P, Tully,  are conducting research
on radioactivity in the ocein—a tre-
tnendous project with limiltless possibilities. At present they are working
with 100 gallon samples of ocean water
filtering each sample through ion
exchange resins. Simply resinous compounds that absorb all'the radioactivity
from tha sea water. In this manner
they are able to concentrate the extremely diluted rad'ond'.ive particles
nnd measure their strength in the
laboratory.
Latter, rather than shipping large
quantities of sea wsl'er to the laboratory they w'll go 'on location aboard
an oceanography ship with pumps
capable of lifting a cubic mile of
water per day through tne resin filters. Possibly these scientists will
discover that radioactivity materials
can be extracted from the ocean al
a eosit that w'll make the process economically practicable. In the field
of pure research graduate and undergraduate students are experimenting
vVith the properties of colbalt, iron,
cerium  and sulphur.
Dr. Kirsch i.s supervising experiment! s w'ith iodine which may ultimately find application in tlte medical
field since radioactive iodine can be
used as "tracer" in diagnosing and
curing such physical ailments.
Shaughnessy Surgeon/ McGill
Anatomist on Medical Staff
Two important appointments to the
Faculty of Medicine have been announced by the Board of Governors
of the University uf British Columbia.
Dr. H. Rcckc Robertson, who at thc
present time is director of surgery
at Shaughnessy Hospital and an associate on the surgical attending staff
of the Vancouver General Hospital,
will head the Department of Surgery.
Dr. Robertson is also Chairman of
the Committee on Refresher Courses
at the Vancouver General Hospital.
Dr. Sidney M. Friedman, at present
associate professor of Anatomy at
McGill University, will head the
corresponding department at the University of British Columbia. Both appointees have outstanding records of
achievement in their respective fields.
GOLD MEDALIST
Dr. Robertson was born in Vic-
toria( B.C., and was gold medalist of
his graduating class in medicine at
McGill University in 1936, In the
years which followed, he distinguished himself while serving on the
staffs cf the Royal Infirmary (Edinburgh), the Middlesex Hospital Medical School, and the Montreal General
Hospital.
He joined the RoVal Canadian Army
Medical Corps in 1940, and was given
command of No. 2 Canadian Field
Surgical Unit in 1942. He served with
this unit through'"the Sicilian campaign. In 1944, he returned to England to take command of the Military
Hospital at Farnborough.
Late in the same year, he wa.s made
Chief of Surgery at the Vancouver
Military Hospital. At the time of his
discharge from the RCAMC in October
1945, Dr. Robertson held the rank of
Lieutenant Colonel. He has been Director of Surgery at Shaughnessy Hos*-
pifctl up to the present.
Dr. Robertson is a member of leading medical societies in England and
Canada, including the Royal College
of Surgeons (Edinburgh), and the
Royal College of Physicians and Sur-
leons cf Canada.
PUBLICATIONS
He has numerous medical publications to his credit and has been
oarticularly interested In the operative
treatment of vascular diseases, the
use of the artificial kidney, and the
treatment of intestinal obstruction,.
Dr. Friedman, a native of Montreal,
's one of Canada's outstanding research anatomists with more than
thirty research publications to his
credit. He was a pioneer in the study
of the steroid hormones, and has
been working in recent years on the
adrenal gland.
Much of Dr. Friedman's research
has been carried on with the assslt-
ance of his wife, the former Constance
E. Livingstone, who is also a scientist of outstanding ability.
She will become a research associate in the Department of Anatomy.
Dr. Friedman holds the degrees of
BA, MDCM, M Sc and Ph D from
McGill University, and has served in
various pests at that institution since
1940.
His academic work was interrupted
by aev'ive service with the Royal
Canadian Air Force, 1943-44, In which
he held a commission as Flight Lieutenant in the Medical Branch. He was
appointed associate professor of Anatomy al MoSill University in 1949.
SATISFACTION
In commenting upon these appointment,^ Dean M.M. Weaver expressed
satisfaction that the University has
obtained such highly qualified peoplo
to fill these important posts.
VIENNESE STUDENTS'NEED
BILLETS DURING VISIT
International Club representatives are in the same fix
as the publications were two weeks ago.
The only difference is that they want billets for 30
students from Vienna whereas the pub only needed billets
for 20 students from Seattle, Washington.
In the group, whioh will be here next Tuesday, are 17
men, 12 women and a facully advisor.

The Ubyssey is slightly amazed at the
Student Peace Movement's persistent passing
of a "ban the bomb" petition,
We are fully aware of the hideous im-
pUcations latent in the U.S. production of the
bomb. The warning of four eminent physicists
over the weekend that one hydrogen bomb
could wipe out all living things leaves us with
a feeling of disgust for the idiots who ordered
the weapon into production.
Bacteriological warfare, too, disturbs us
not a little and even now outdated atom-
teiftb causes the bottom to drop out of our
gtomachs. 4   f <f
But we hope that the Student Peace
Movement is not naive enough to believe that
•the petition will actually accomplish anything.
The problem is much too deep to be
solved by a handful 6f names on a scroll of
iMiper.
It involves a solution to an ideological
Jobs For Chemicals
The Chemical Engineers — God bless
'•m — have produced a small brochure for
distribution to prospective employers which
they hope "will result in more jobs for UBC
graduates.
The attractive booklet, while not a fancy
job, has enough color in it to make it eye
catching and the copy in it is well-written
and competently handled.
The booklet, we hope, will provide many
a job for graduating Chemical Engineers.
The Chemical Engineers have demonstrated that their foresight, on this occasion,
is better than their hindsight. The production
of such a booklet should be an inspiration
not only to other faculties but for those who
have the good of the university at heart in the
field of public relations.

war, to the international trade problem, to the
internal difficulties inherent in both capitalism and communism, and finally to the ultimate question of effective world government.
The Student Peace Movement might better devote its attention to these basic problems or to their underlying educational and
philosophical implications.
Peace Movement leaders will no doubi
stoutly maintain that their petition will awaken public interest in the problem. But public
interest is already there. The press, whatever
may be its faults, has provided enough scare
stories to awaken the most lethargic.
Perhaps the petition gives the Peace Movement members a peculiar feeling of pyscho-
logical well-being. They perhaps feel that
they alone have something, however futile.
But the point is that there is a great
deal that the Peace Movement could do which
would be much less futile than running about

Critic on the hearth      ■* «*■ *■*■■••"
Jussl Bjoerllng's vocallsm is a thing
of beauty. His melodious voice is al-
ways used to creat sounds that are
attractive. His mastery of the true bel
canto style of singing with its effortless legato and its bevy of finely spun
pianlssimos marks him as one of the
few singers who has taken the time
to gain complete control of his vocal
equipment.
Yet, as I sat lapping up this gorgeous outpouring of sound, I realized
that the most inspiring moments of
Friday evening's recital came from Mr.
Bjoerling's effortless surmounting of
purely technical problems and not
from his communication of the inner
subtleties of the text. There was, in
fact, little attempt on the pant of the
singer to delve Into the significance
of the words he sang. The most
Striking example of this occurred when
Mr. Bjoerling proffered as one of his
many encores, Foster's "Jeannle with
the Light Brown Hair.'1 Tha tenor
was obviously more concerned with
the shape of his vowels than he was
with an ardent young man's wistful
yearning for his love. Throughout the
entire evening the same general ap-
Letters To
This editorial is not meant to be in disparagement of the work being presently done
by the Extension Department. They have done
an excellent job of informing the public of
the progress being made at UBC, but are
at the mercy of newspapers Who consider
many of the items they release of relatively
little interest.
A booklet of the sort produced by the
Chemical Engineers could inform potential
donors of the need for funds to complete the
War Memorial and the progress that has
been made on it so far.
Doubtless there are many other uses
which such a publication could be adapted to.
The Ubyssey congratulates the staff of the
Chemical's handbook and hopes that it brings
them many an offer of prosperous employment.
fa This Comet       by jim banham
This time with their tongue in their cheek,
Hollywood has wrenched another Broadway
hit from thf stage and twisted its meaning and
logic until it's virtually unrecognizable.
Horribly miscast as the heroine, Paulette
Goddard roams through "Anna Lucasta"
looking like something transplanted from high
society to the slums. Miss Goddard's limited
talents, as an actress that is, certainly don't
suit her for this part. Her very obvious physical endowments are nice to look at, if you
like that soft of thing.
"Anna Lucasta" was a successful stage,
play about a prostitute who was thrown out
of her home by her father. In the picture
Miss Goddard's sole sin was kissing a young
man after a teen-age dance. Father throws
her out all right, but she is euphemistically
called a "waitress" in the picture.
The picture concerns itself with the family's attempts to unite Anna, who is persuaded
to come home, with Rudolph, the son of
Father Lucasta's"best friend, who comes north
to seek his fortune with an agriculture degree,
Anna and Rudolph hit it off right away
and get married (10 minutes, screen time.)
At this point Father Lucasta threatens to
squeal on Anna, and while Rudy is off changing after the wedding Anna runs off.
But love triumphs and Rudy is united
again with Anna in a waterfront bar in
Brooklyn. Presumably they go to his farm
and live happily ever after.
None of the major characters in the film
are of any importance but some of the lesser
figures do give good performances. Broderick
Crawford, married lo Anna's sister, does well
as a bumbling, well-meaning oad, and father
Lucasta, as a man on his last legs from drink,
manages to put over his dissipation.
A bit player known as "Queenie" appears
for only a couple of minutes but her imbibing, calls for "dearie" in a rasping voice,
and her majestic exit while drunk is a little
gem in the middle of a lot of sludge.
Famous Player Theatres have brought
another Cecile B. DeMille epic to town. "Samson and Delilah," which has been dubbed "a
romp through the book of Judges with Cecile
B. DeMille," is playing here artd patrons are
being charged $1.25 for "this special limited
entertainment," a little sign over the box
office says.
Here are a few questions addressed to
the Famous Players Chain. (1) What's
"special" about Samson and Delilah. I've read
some reviews and they all think the picture
stinks. I'd like to say so too, but not for $1.25.
(2) What's "limited" about the picture? I
know Mr. DeMille's talents as a movie producer are very limited but is the picture?
(3) If you had the intention of producing a
bible story — a story from the world's greatest
book — why do you put it on the level of
"entertainment?" Doesn't, it merit a better
tag than that? Personally, I'm inclined to
think your soaking the public where you
think you can get away with it.
Some pictures worth the trip to downtown houses are: The Great Lover, starring
Bob Hope, not the best Hope picture made,
but entertaining; Lost Boundaries, the story
of negroes who pass for white; two revivals,
Casablanca, obviously released because it
stars Ingrid Bergman and G-Men, starring
energetic Jimmy Cagney and Quartet, four
of Somerset Maugham's short stories on film,
The Editor, Ubyssey
Is it possible that our Les forgot to
turn on the light when he was looking at the SCM? lt would seem so.
With the exception of two or three
disparaging and juvenile remarks
abcut the SCM — which has no bearing on his actual subject — he has
said nothing about the organization.
These few remarks he follows with
a confused jumble of words about
Atheism and Life Week. Then he
wanders off to discuss a subject that
seems to be Beyond his comprehension under the heading "Three Points,''
from which it must be assumed:
1. That he did not attend the lecture
which has aroused his indignation.
If he did he should hove come out
from behind his mair and given us
the benefit of his profound wisdom.
2. That his informer became befuddled ten minutes after the discussion began and missed the last
fifty minutes of the lecture.
3. That he or his Informer were unable to see the trees for the forest.
It is only too obvious that Mr,
Armour has succeeded in doing the
very thing the "learned professor"
cotr.mented on some weeks ago when
he found an item in an evening
■japer that purported to be an accurate presentation of thc main points
of a  noon  hour  talk he  had given.
Mr. Armour, when you condemn
Christianity on the* basis of Negro
lynchings, which are certainly not a
product of Christianity, when you
make such a ridiculous remark as
'the appearance of Christian speakers
in classes is a little dangerous," whtn
you imply that the Christian religion
is not concerned about "the state of
humanity," you condemn yourself as
i fool and you expose your complete
gnorance of the meaning of Chris-
'.innity. You would do well, Mr. Armour, to restrict your critical efforts
to matters about' which you have
some knowledge.
It is a strange thing that in a

proach was evident; impeccable phrasing, subtle nuances of tonal color,
and rarely a glimmer of what the
song was really about.
It is dubious whether operatic tenors
should ever attempt lieder singing.
Most lieder demand the utmost in
psychological 'insight on the part of
both singer and and pianist. Operatic
singers who deal for the most part
with heightened, florid emotions,
rarely seem comfortable when restricted to the miniature human dramas
such as one finds in most of the
greatest songs of Schubert and Hugo
Wolf. Let it be said that Mr. Bjoerling is not the exception that proves
the rule.
In the Inevitable operatic excerpts,
Mr. Bjoerling was on home territory.
However, familiarity with the singers
previous achievements through the
mediums of radio and recordings leads
one to believe that there was an
unusual reserve  in   the presentation
of most of the operatic arias. Mr.
Bjoerling's conception of Don Jose
passionate obscessin with the gypsy
Carmen seemed a trifle sedate. Yet
the singing of Le Reve from "Manon"
was the highlight of the evening. The
plasticity of the phrasing and the tranquility of mood created an Impression
of timeless serenity, suggesting that
Mr. Bjoerling's greatest strength lies
in those operatic roles in which the
emphasis is on the lyric rather than
the dramatic.
The evening's considerable enjoyment was not enhanced by the work
of the accompanist who plodded
through his material, apparently oblivious of his surroundings, a section
of which included Mr. Bjoerling.

An important discovery of Uranium
has been made on the new site in
Quebec city which Laval University
plans to oocupy.
The astonishing news ls disclosed
in last week's issue of the student
paper Le Carabin, and the significance
of it is an ironic circumstance for
the paper, which has a reputation for
perpetrating jokes on Its readers,
THU JOKE
This time the joke is on Le Carabin's
editors, who have hottest story of
their career on their hands, and are
trying desperately to show their earnestness. This discovery itself ll a
fantastic story.
Andre Fortin, a First Year Forestry
Engineering student, actually has a
claim for Uran|nite on the future
campus site following an unusual occurence.
He used to take long walks every
night over the site. Every time, he
noticed that he would get a shock
or a quick burning sensation in his
right knee which he broke years ago.
These repeated shocks, always at the
same place and in the same direction,
made the young scienceman curious.
Secretly he verified and found that
radio-activity could cause that particular phenomenon in the case of a
sensitive joint.
When he was sure of his finding, he
went alone, at night, at the exact
place of the radiations. Hidden by
darkness, he proceeded to what wquld
have seemed silly to anybody else;
with a pick and a shovel, he cleared
off the heavy ice layer( then kept on
digging into the ground until the intensity of the strange sensation removed his last doubt's. This was Friday at 5:00 p.m*.
THE SANE NIGHT
He  went,  the same night  to the
lab to make an analysis of his discovery. Results a semi-metallic brown-
black mineral, density 9.5, hardness
5 to 6, octaedric and orhtorhombic
crystals, and soluble Mn nitric acid.
Saturday morning, the faculty meter
indicated 30 radio-active units, which
is Considered enormous by specialists.
Faculty dean and professors were
present' at that last verification,
This is how a Laval student made
one of the century's most astonishing
discoveries with nothing else than a
limb he calls the "Fortin Detector.'1
Knowing that the Federal Govern-

ment ls offering 1850.00 a ton for the

earlier in February at Charlevoix,
along the St. Lawrence river, approximately 130 miles from Quebec city,

STUDENT INVENTS WIFE
PROOF' CIGARETTE BOX
A French university student has invented a "wife
proof" cigarette box.
The box, built like a bank vault, is so regulated that
the top opens like the door to a time vault. The time may be
set ahd the box will not open until the indicated hour.
The invention is expected to be a boon to husbands
with wives who smoke.
"The time mechanism may be set in the morning," said
the young inventor, ."and there will be no worries about
'being out' when you return home in the evening.'*
fhe Mummery
(This is a special column written by the immortal
Ubyssey columnist 'Jabez* for the Engineers' edition. As
lucfc would have it the Engineers jorgot to run it, so
the Editors of the Ubyssey take this opportunity to
print the column.)
I have received a wired invitation to
contribute something to the Engineers' Issue.
I accept with pleasure. Easily impressed by
the wonders of modern communication, I
should undoubtedly accept a wired invitation
to stick my head into a barrel of Hot tar. If
somebody phoned me long-distance from Bombay and said, "Shoot your Grandmother," the
old lady would promptly bite the sawdust.
I guess that's why they never let me answer
the phone.
Anyhow, I realize that the reason why
the invitation had to be telegraphed was that
the writers the Engineers first asked to contribute took so long saying no. Jack Scott
was on his way to England, Barry Mather
was on his way to the washroom, Wildwood
was busy cutting back his ivy wherfe It was
beginhtng to tickle, and so on. My high degree
of availability, a quality much admitted by
Engineers in those with whom they come into
contact, has won me a recall, therefore, hnd
in my usual harlot fashion I'm delighted.
A little nervous, though. In one of the
Ubyssey's that fhe Circulation Department
has been kind enough to send to me here
in Paris, I read that a freshette, seeing the
Bewley-machinated plaque to me in the Brock
commented, "Say, didn't he die young!" I'm
not sure that I shouldn't let sleeping dogs'
lie (if that's the cliche I want), instead of
pullmg a Yorick and grinning noiselessly at
that youhg woman. But, the damage is done
now, and the plaque can always be used as
a novelty sandwich board.
Well, now, what in Paris would interest
an Engineer? I seem to hear vulgar laughter
off-stage. All righj, what else in Paris would
interest an Engineer? Should I perhaps describe the Pony du Carroussel, a beautiful
new bridge across the Seine, built because
the old one was'nt quite flush with the gate
of the Louvre? A bridge which couldn't have
ordinary illumination because the lamp-
standards would have clashed in perspective
with *the outlines of the Louvre, so that the
engineers built four graceful pylons whose top
sections, thanks to electric motor* in the base
of each, sing into the bottom sections each
dawn and rise again each dusk. No, I guess
not. To discuss the aesthetics of engineering
with somebody that has to live with the
By Jab
ez
Granville Street Bridge, Canada's original
example of conquest of space by scaring it
to death, would be ungracious of a guest.
The only other thing in Paris that I
associate with an engineer is the Eiffel Tower.
The Eiffel Tower was built for the Exhibition
of 1189 by an Engineer named Eiffel, who
then went away and killed himself laughing.
Nobody knew what to do with the horrible
tower when the Exhibition was over. Eiffel
hadn't made it detachable or readily convertible into a groceteria. Instead he had hammered it together with millions of nails, all
984 feet of it, and all efforts to pull them out
were fiercely resisted by the little men who
ran the elevators to the top.
I rode one of the elevators to the second
landing, and that was quite enough. French
elevators have a way of progressing slowly
upwards with peculiar, zithering vibrations
of their cables that soon makes you crazy
about stairs. Looking down from the great
height of the second landing I could see where
a space had been left around the base in case
the tower ever fell over or was pushed. A
thrill of horror shivered my vitals. I backed
away from the railing and felt around for
elevator that would take me down. The
French have two kinds of elevators; those
that take you up and those that take you
down. Nobody seems to know what happens
to the elevators *that ascend once they're
ascended, but there's no doubt about their
refusal to give their cables all that misery
again. Paris is full of elevators parked^ at the
top and adamant as hell. I landed out pf the
tower in pretty bad shape.
One truly admirable elevator in Paris,
though, is that in the stage of the Tabarin
night club in Montmartre. As the climax of
ihe floorshow, this elevator rises from the
depths, liberally festooned with show girls
representing various minerals. Miss Gold, for
instance, wears a golden smile, Miss Silver
is strung with small change (much too small,
marvellous) and Miss Diamond wears a
sparkling sort of sporran in a handsome setting of naked hip. Mineralogy never had it
so good.
So .much for prospecting in Paris. For
other courses I must refer you to the calendar of the University of Paris. Me, I'm just
going to sit here and think about Miss Diamond, the wonderful riches of the earth, and
the way one little elevator in Paris can lift
an entire night club, chairs and all, clean off
its feet.

Interest In 'Birds
Keeps Pace of Cagers in Papers
As Locals Dominate Cellar Spot
Uy GIL GRAY
Since I cannot seem to find my
copy of that well-known downtown
paper around here, I assure you I do
not know what happened in the
games over ihe weekend.
However my Mends tell me that
the 'Birds lost both games. I the
Thursday night game against Central
Washington, the 'Birds lost by about
20 points. Art Phillips played a really
stellar game, getting up in the iwo
digit figures.
REVENGE DISGRACE
Then after two days rest the 'Birds
met the Pacific Lutheran Gladiators
in a blow by blow contest. The Lutes
were out to beat the 'Birds and thereby
remove some of the disgrace of losing
their first conference game kv January to the 'Birds.
The Lute Star Harry McLaughlin
whipped out 17 points in Khe 'Bird-
Lute game to complete h'( four year
total with the amazing total of 1785
points.
Ah, here is the morning paper. The
score was 56-42. The 'Birds did quite
well down to the last few minutes
until McLaughlin got eight quick
points to put the Lutes way out In
front.
COMPLETES CAREER
Nev Munro completed his career
with the Thunderbirds at UBC by
scoring a sensational 19 points, to say
nothing of his work in Ithe backboards
at both ends of the court.
The Saturday night game was the
last conference game for' the 'Birds
tthls season, and Khe last for a number of the 'Bird hoopers. The list includes Jawn Forsyth, Reid Mitchell,
Nev Munro, Bill Bell, Norm Watt.
Phillips, Hudson, Louie, Walker, and
Southcott will remain to form whafc
might be the nucleous of next year's
Thunderbird basketball team.

Hockey Chance Puts
UBC in Local Battle
Quick change in schedule, after
much consultation and dickering, resulted in Khe UBC ice hockey team
playing a two-game total point series
with the Kerrisdale Monarchs for the
•tart of the Mainline Hockey League
playoffs.
NoW'.ce of the change came through
over the weekend, calling the first
game for last night with the second
going again tonight.
BCHA officials finally ruled that the
Mainline loop had to include UBC in
the playoffs with the announced winner by March 20, which would have
been impossible under the previous
plans of Kerrisdale and the league.
Failure to do this and the ECHA
would declare UBC Winner, and they
would play off with the Kooteney's
winner.

Rugger Game Cancelled
Due To Flooded Field
Rugger fans must wait at least one
week before they see whalt has been
repeatedly called "the game of the
year,'" by local sport authorities when
UBC Thunderbirds and Vancouver
meet in their first McKechnie Cup
tilt.
HELD FLOODED
Terrific downpour of rain for days
before 'the meet scheduled for last
Saturday, and especially by the excessive torrent on ithe day of the
match, completely saturated the stadium field.
Where lit would have been possible
to play the game, the field would have
suffered mostly, aind officials did rot
want to take the risk for one game
that can be played some other Itime.
Game will probably be played with
Victoria Crimson Tide alt UBC's home
field.
When Thunderbirds are in California
the following week, Vancouver Reps
can play with the Island City 15.
QUITE CERTAIN
No official word has been released
yet,  but  UBC   players and  officials
are fairly certain that the charge will
be made that way.

same amount of time as was originally
scheduled, allowing free dates for
University of California when they
come up to Vancouver March 23 arid
25.
