Result Of I.S.S. Drive Disappointing
To Provide
Climax Fri.
•   THE ISS DRIVE to date
has been "very, very disappointing"    according   t o
chairman Harry Penny.
So far only about $450 of
the $1200 needed has been
contributed, despite the ef"
forts of a small army of
workers. "Students simply
haven't come across," stated
Penny  when interviewed
Ia the penny drive both Arts
and Science have managed to
reach the Science building, with
the Artsmen slightly in the lead
So far. The battle isn't over yet
by any means, however, and all
students are urged to get out and
support their faculties, as well as
the persecuted students overseas.
An auction to support the drive
Is being held at noon today ln
the quad. Ihe big feature of the
188 program is the basketball
gmm««and dance tonight
The game is between Varsity
Thunderbirds and the Dominion
ehampion Pat Bay "Gremlins",
this ls the third time the two
teams have met this season, and
Varsity will be out to avenge its
two previous defeats.
The game will be foUowed by e
dsaes hi the Brock from nine to
one. The music will be provided
by Dave MeLeUand and his Varatty
Dance Orchestra.
Tickets for the basketball game
and dance can be secured at the
box office in the quad on presentation of the white ISS tag, which
costs an extra fifty cents after
buying the yellow tag.
For those who have not bought
white tsgs, single tickets to the
game and dance can be bought for
fifty cents.
Ihe white tag will be punched
and given back. All tags should
be worn to the dance. The unfortunate person who forgets his
tag will undoubtedly be mobbed
by the Phrateres, who will continue to sell tags at the game, and
also at the dance.
The drawing for the "car of the
future" will be held at the dance.
The car is complete with kneeleas
action, no clutch (no fluid drive
either) and an ultramodern non-
combustion (non-everything else
too) engine. Only the latest types
of plastics, string, and chewing
gum have been used in its construction.
Owing to circumstances beyond
the control of the Publications
Board, the Science Issue, originally
scheduled to appear on Tuesday,
February 8, will appear.

Spring Offensive will not be
sold at the Commodore. All redshirts wishing to attend must obtain tickets in advance," warned
the committee in charge of the
Science Ball.
In the past it has been customary to sell tickets at the door to
persons showing Applied Science
student passes, but this system
has been discontinued because of
"pass switching," Also, enough
tickets have already been sold to
ensure a full attendance.
Elections Result
InfClear Majority
For Conservatives
• THE GOVERNMENT at UBC's coming Mock Parliament
will consist of a coalition of Liberals and Progressive
Conservatives. The election, in Arts 100 on Wednesday, resulted in a clear majority for the Prog.-Cons., but they had
already planned a coalition and intend to go through with it.
The result of the vote was: Prog.-
Cons., fifty-one, (60%), CCF and
LPP, twenty-six (31%), Liberals,
eight (9%).
Les Raphael, Liberal Leader, will
be Prime Minister, while John
Cowan, leader of the Conservatives, will hold the office of Minister of External Affairs.
Other members of the cabinet
are, Stu Porteous, Minister of
Trade and Commerce; Les Canty,
Minister of War. the complete
list is not yet ready for publication.
The main piece of legislation to
be introduced is the "Commonwealth Council" bill, which recommends that the council help
coordinate the foreign policies of
the respective countries towards a
lasting peace and harmony among

Feel B.A. Inadequate
Students Petition For B. Sc
• A PETITION requesting
the establishment of a
degree of Bachelor of
Science is being circulated
among the pure science students on the campus this
The petition was started by th3
Chemistry Society and the idea
Ciulckly spread throughout the departments of Bacteriology and
preventive medicine, Biology, Botany, Chemistry, Mathematics, Physics and Zoology, which come under the heading of pure science
At present students pursuing
courses in pure science in the faculty of Arts and Science feel that
the  degree   of  Bachelor  of  Arts
does not fully represent the train,
ing which they receive.
Certain graduates of honours
courses in Science, when applying
for positions, have found much
difficulty in explaining the significance of their degrees. Opinion
prevails that Science at UBC is
restricted to the faculty of Applied Science.
Students affected by the petition are persons who are honouring or taking a double major hi
any two of the departments of
pure sciences. Former graduates
could also be readmitted as Bachelors of Science, provided they
have fulfilled the requirements,
upon payment of their graduation
fee and surrender of their Batchelor of Arts diploma.
The  petition  does not  request
that a separate Faculty of Science
should be established. Degrees are
given in Commerce, Home Economics and Education without separate faculties for each; and eleven
of the twelve Canadian universities
which confer the degree of Bachelor of Science do not have such
a separate faculty.
Most of the faculty members in
the departments concerned have
expressed their approval of the
establishment of such a degree
at UBC, it was revealed by a
spokesman for  the students.
The petition, when fully signed,
must first go before th-? Senate
of the university, which will next
meet on February 16, before any
further action can be taken.
Les' Raphael, in appealing for
support for the Liberals, pointed
out that the French problem was
the most important problem in
Canada today, and insisted that the
Liberals were the only party which
could claim to have the confidence
of the people of Quebec.
Mary Pickering, LPP, speaking
for the combined socialist parties,
stated that they were opposed to
British Imperialism, and believed
in the United Nations as the basis
for world peace.
Jim, "I am here", Wilson, CCF
leader, was not present
Speaking for the Progressive-
Conservatives, John Cowen stated
that his policy was one of progress based oft achievement, and
full cooperation, with British sister
nations. He insisted that socialism
was based on ancient feudalism,
and that personal freedom was
preferable to regimentation.
The mock parliament will be
held a week from today. It starts
at 4:00 sharp, with the speech from
the throne. There will be a recess
for supper at 5:45, after which the
parliament will reconvene and
continue until 10:00 p.m.
A meeting for all government
members is to be held at noon

Dick Bibbs
• WITH better than a two
to  one  majority,   Dick
Bibbs was elected president
of the Alma Mater Society
Wednesday. Of the 1515
votes cast, Bibbs received
1615 and Stu Porteous received 450.
In a special interview Bibbs
stated "I would like to take this
opportunity to thank all those who
supported me". Re also said he
hoped more students would get
out and vote in the remainder of
the elections.
When asked his plan for neat

will be some changes made."
Harry Curran, in charge ef elections, said that the number of
votes cast this year was a record.
With the maximum of t.000 voters 1515 voted. This is about 300

However, forty-eight ballots were
spoilt because students didn't mark

Science Takes Over
Engineers will invade the Pub again
next Monday to conceive for all our faithful
readers the red and fantastic issue of the
Ubyssey. For those students who are new
to the campus, we feel it is only fair to
warn them in advance of what is liable to
leap out at them from the esteemed pages
of their paper next Tuesday.
The science issue is thpt one because
of which every editor lives in fear and
trembling for four weeks. The first two
weeks are fearsome because of anticipation
of what may happen to the Ubyssey; the last
two weeks are terrifying because we are
awaiting the news that we and the paper
are jointly suspended.
However, so far we have escaped this
fate, and we have almost every hope that we
can do so this year again.
The Science Issue is filled with rather
soiled jokes, suggestive features, and a few
serious articles about matters of moment
such as the Science Ball. All in all, it is
not a bad issue, and we welcome back to
the Pub the engineers for their annual
eruption into print. Besides, it means we
have a holiday for a day.
The object of this filler in the first three
columns, page two, is to emphasis the fact
that Issue 30 is not of our concoction, either
editorially or factually. The opinions to be
expressed are not those of the regular staff
of the Ubyssey.
Bachelor Of Science Degree
Some practically minded people on the
campus have been circulating^ petition requesting that the degree conferred on students of the "pure" sciences be changed
from that of Bachelor of Arts to Bachelor
of Science.
These students maintain that confusion
arises among the people who hire these
graduates who now receive the Bachelor of
Arts degree, in that they do not realize that
they have had a scientific training at the
There is the other argument that the
degree might be confused with that of Bachelor of Applied Science, but these students
seem to prefer to be confused with engineers
than with liberal artsmen.
Many graduates with honours in pure
science have found difficulty in obtaining
jobs in labs because of the misleading degree
of Bachelor of Arts. Employers often do
not understand the system of majors and
minors and are suspicious of a student's
claim to hold an Arts degree and yet be
qualified in scientific subjects.
There has been no attempt to have a
separate department of pure science begun
at the university. The majority of Canadian
universities which now offer the degree of
Bachelor of Science do not have such a
separate department.
The Mummery
How to Gain Complete Mastery of the
Upper Berth
•   AS A RESULT of my long and bouncey
association with the Upper Berth, I have
been able to evolve an experimental theory
which, in the opinion of many authorities,
throws a bombshell into the whole complicated science of dressing in an upper. This
work is to appear soon in the scientific brochure, "The Gallileo Guardian", and is entitled, "A Method, with Variations, for the
Horizontal Investiture of Habiliments in the
Sepulchrous Alterior, or 'Upper Berth'."
The highlight of this formidable attempt
to cut down the appalling loss of life in
upper berths is my work on the "High
Arch", or "London Britches Falling Down"
system of donning nether accoutrements, or
pants. I have discovered, (not without personal inconvenience in self-experimentation
which should, I thing, merit the Nobel Prb.e
or at least a good second-hand set of ribs),
I have discovered that there is one and one
only truly efficient method of putting on
trousers in an upper berth. I make this assertion with full knowledge of Dr. Elf Moonglow's classic work on this subject ("You
Don't Know What You Are, Do You?", p.
358 inclusive). Dr. Moonglow's theory, which
has been accepted in the past merely because it was a classic and had won the Good
Housekeeping Seal of Approval, is, no doubt,
an admirable and thorought work in some
respects. But, in other respects, in the
humble opinion of this writer, it stinks.
For instance, Dr. Moonglow says,
"When applying trousers or britches in an
Upper Berth, it has been found wisest to
abandon the project before the gyrations
and shouted invective involved have incited
a general panic." The italics are my own.
The dangling participle is Dr. Moonglow's,
and on him it looks good.
Now, although my esteemed colleague
has advised against attempting'to put on
one's legwear in an upper berth, it must be
obvious to the close observer, like you or
me, that the rat makes no attempt whatever
at a solution of the problem, cold-bloodedly
abandoning the half-dressed victim in his
upper without his trousers on, and proceeding with an irrelevant, albeit learned, discussion on the Ethics of the Albino Monkey.
This is, I believe, defeatism at its worst, or,
as my associate, Dr. Randolph Dung, puts it,
"This is, I believe, defeatis mat is worst"
(Dung, R. What Every Young Sleeping Car
Conductor Should Know, Sixty-ninth revision, p. 169-173). What Dr. Moonglow is
suggesting is that the passenger clamber
down from his upper in his shorts, waiving
propriety in favour of appeasement. This is,
of course, the sort of thing that breeds wars.
Now, my theory, the "High Arch", or
"London Britches Falling Down" method of
donning britches, is simple, yet dignified.
Naturally, I cannot go into the details of this
theory as they are still secret, but I can
offer an outline of the technique which I
By Jabez
have developed. The essence of the proceed-
ure is nothing more than natural body
rhythm, and a good sense of timing. If you
can dance, there is no reason why you cannot get on your pants in an upper.
(N.B.: It must be noted at this juncture that
the theory here presented has been worked
out for male subjects only. My experiments
with females in uppers have, hereto, been
rendered somewhat inaccurate by the element of overcrowding, as well as by porters
who do not recognize the scientific approach
when they see it. I shall, however, repeat
my experiments indefinitely until I have
achieved complete success, and have convinced myself that, as far as dressing the
female in an upper berth is concerned, nothing has been left undone. To every man his
life work.  End of N.B.)
To continue. The first movement of the
"High Arch" method is simply that of swinging the legs up from a lying position, intil
they are at right angles to the body. It will
be found easier to do this when lying on the
back. There are some who claim to prefer
lying on the stomach, but in all my experiments the subjects have tended to suffocate
in the pillow. This is undesirable.
Now, with the legs at right angles to the
body, the shorts, if any, and trousers are
dropped in turn over the feet. To do this,
it will be necessary to swing up the fore
part of the body, at the same time bringing
the feet down into an inverted crouch position. It is at this point that your wallet slips
out of your pants pocket, falling into the
corridor with a musical tinkle of loose
We'll wait for you while you try to get
somebody to hand it up to you.
Now that you have regained your wallet, minus a certain amount of loose change,
we can proceed with the procedure. The
• trousers are now hanging, inverted, on your
legs. This is the point at which all the older
techniques leave off, and at which the real
beauty of the "High Arch" method is to be
seen to the full. The subject now straightens
out the legs, and slowly arches the body,
until it is resting on the heels and the top
of the head, with the Stomach as the high
spot on the crescent. The trousers are then
seized by the hands and whisked over the
posterior in a twinkling. With time and
practice, it is possible to become sufficiently
adept at the "High Arch" to not only draw
on shorts and trousers, but also tuck in
shirt and sweater. The ability to do this is,
of course, the touch of the master, and the
beginner must not be overly ambitious at
first, or he will break his silly back.   •
I strongly recommend, also, that all
those who will be living a fuller life, thanks
to my "High Arch" theory, be on the alert
for my next work, "How to Drink Orange
Juice While Travelling Through Northern
Ontario".  It's a killer.

At the close of the last war, Nickel was
no longer needed to build battleships and
artillery. The demand for Canadian Nickel
fell off sharply. Soon the Canadian Nickel
mines had to close down.
But the men who managed these properties
could foresee possible new markets for
Canadian Nickel in the growing automobile, electric, radio, chemical and other
industries. They organized a Research and
Development department to work with
engineers in these industries, and to promote the use of Nickel and its alloys
wherever better materials were required.
Shortly, operations were resumed. In
1924, the Nickel industry opened a new
mine. In 1926 it began enlarging
its smelting and refining plants. Within a
decade it was paying out 15 millions of
dollars a year in Canada for wages.
Although the entire output of Canadian
Nickel is today diverted to war
uses, this industry has  definite
plans for the  post-war period.
Then it will turn again to its
peacetime markets, and will
proceed to develop new markets based on research now
in   progress.    Through   its
own  enterprise,  the Canadian Nickel  industry
plans still greater contributions   to   Canada's

Armageddon     'Henderson Night' Friday
Dear Chas:
How in the hell are you? Believe me, chum, it sure is
good to be hack on the Campus. But, quite frankly, old man,
things just ain't the same. I hate to admit it, but I must say
that I feel more at home in a one and only Eastern Canadian
During the past few months, I've come across dozens of
former UBC studes. If you will bear with me, let's reminisce
awhile. Remember Jack Stevenson, one of UBC's best Treasurer's, now a CO. of one of Canada's fighting ships.
Just two years ago President Ted McBride was doing his
stuff for his old Almy Mater—still at the top and doing damn
good work.
Remember that smoothie Tom Crone and Jack Creighton
—well they are just as smooth as ever and improving every
day. When a guy can get three dates for one dance, take
one gal, the other two turn up with last minute guys, and he
can still keep peace—believe me, that's good.
Then there are several Phi Delt characters who are
blushing furiously from the results of this year's rushing—
Ron McBride, Don Pearson, Al Shore, Johnny Long, Boyd
Crosby, Jim Dawson, Hugh Ritchie and Brian Chew.
Helen's little boy Al will probably undoubtedly be coming home with a handkerchief up his 'sleeve and a few
cheerio's and a couple of 'by jove's', while Joyce's little boy
Hugh will arrive with a ship-load of salty dips as only Hugh
will be able to tell them. •
'Hie Beta's are represented by a really fine bunch of
fellows, such as Jack Cunningham, Dave Williams, and
Johnny Nicholls.
Ilia inimitable Inman brothers have finally been separated. Sad but true! Harry is wooing the gals on an island off
the east coast of Canada, while Bill is continuing to keep
the Bluenoeies amused.
I met Cliff Hill one night. Ah, yes, Cliff is such a nice
boy—never drinks, smokes, swears, or even thinks of going
out with girls.
Aw nuts, let's have a rum and coke, Chas.

UBC Meets St; George
First Tisdall Cup
Game At Brockton
•   VARSITY RUGGER TEAMS get a new lease on Ufe
tomorrow afternoon when play starts afresh with the
Tisdall   Cup   competition.    Varsity   meets   Ex-Byng   in
the opener of hostilities at 2:15 on the Brockton Point Oval.
While Varsity is taking care ol -~~~~~"""""""~~~"~"~~~
Ex-Byng, the UBC team is featured on the campus in an exhibition
game with St. Oeorge, St. Oeorge
and UBC have met several times
this season, alwaya in exhibition
matches, and have worked up u
keen state of rivalry between the
two clubs.
The teams will be a little different than they were before the
McKechnie Cup play finished laat
week. Instead of Varsity being
made up of the choice playera and
the UBC being made up of the
next beat Varsity will be composed of upper claaamen and UBC
will consist of freshmen.
The upper class team has power
in the strength of same of the
Individual members. Doug Held,
John Wheeler, Oeorge Rush, Gerry Lockhart, and Bill Wallace are
some of the fellows who will pro-
.vide plenty of punch all through
tha line up.
What the freshmen lack In experience and ability they will
make up in quantity. The turn
out of the freshmen this year has
been exceptionally good.
Some of the players who will
back up the UBC team and who
have made a name for themselves
In the Thunderbird team are:
John Slmm, Bob Lawson, Keith
MacDonald, Bill Redpath, and Joe
Pequis. These kids have plenty of
fight and are hard to defeat in
spirit and probably in force.
Thirteen men will be used during the spring campaign but two
substitutes will be allowed if
deemed necessary. A new idea to
people who follow the game on
this section of the globe is the
New Zealand Kick Rule. This
rule states that the ball must
bounce before it goes out of
bounds if the player expects to
gain any yardage out of his
If the players take this rule to
heart and work it down to a fine
art the game will be considerably
bettered and speeded up in the
field plays. •

Dance In Brock
• PAT BAY GREMLIN'S crash the campus gym tonight
to start off "Hunk Henderson Night" at 7:30, at which
time referee "Gummy" Leach will blast his whistle for the
tip-off of a stupendous basketball contest between the two
top teams of the province.
Following the game, the colossal       —--__-_____________,_____
"Letterman's Limp" commences on
the stroke of nine with solid
strains issuing from the orchestra
of Dave McLelland. These two tremendous events spell a sensational
"Hunk Henderson Night".
The Big Block Club is sponsoring
the affair and all proceeds will
go to the International Student
Service. Big Block boys Art Stilwell, Jim Scott and Mack Buck
are in charge of the combined
game and dance tonight.
As for the game, the Vanity
hoopsters are all set to beat the
famotta filers. Lest year Pat Bay
won the Canadian Basketball
Championship, and this season,
they are leading the Inter City
League with three wins. However,
on Saturday night, tae students
will be after a win to put them
up with the "Gremlins" ln a tie
for first place.
The Pat Bay team played here
in the campus gym last November
in an exhibition game before a
packed house and wen by a aim-
dor margin. Since then, the airmen have picked up "Perky" Andrew! (a look-alike to Dr. Jennings), who made a flashy appearance at VAC against the Combines
two weeks ago.
Baeket-gorger Norm Baker will
be the man to watch tonight. He
and "Pop" Pay are the main
worries of the student cagers, although Ian McKeachie is a dead-
eye on the long shots.
After their two-game series here
this week-end; at UBC Friday at
7:30 and at VAC Saturday at 9:00,
the Thunderbirds travel south to
Seattle on next Thursday to meet
the Chlhuahuan State Teachers,
hoop champions of Mexico.
To Play
• VARSITY'S Soccer team will
meet the powerful Richmond
eleven at Kerrisdale Park this
Saturday at 2:45 in a regular V
