To Mock
• MOCK Parliament will
be held this Fall under
the sponsorship of the Parliamentary Forum, it was announced at the opening of
the Forum last Thursday. •
Dick Bibbs indicated that the
first major function of the Parliamentary Forum would be the mock
parliament to be staged in the main
lounge of Brock Hall about the
beginning of November.
This year's session of the Mock
Parliament,is to be conducted on
the same lines as was last year's.
Jack Hetherington said that plans
were being formulated for continuance of the Freshman debate with
Victoria College and the McGoun
Cup debates with the Universities
of Saskatchewan and Manitoba.
He also remarked that inter-high
school debates to bo sponsored by
tho Forum were under advisement.
The purpose of these debates would
be to familiarize prospective university students with the Parliamentary Forum.
"Resolved that all Japanese now
in Canada, whether born in Japan
or Canada, be repatriated to Japan
upon the successful termination of
the war" was debated at the
Jim Wilson headed the government, John Cowan the opposition.
The debate will be continued at
the next meeting of the Forum.
Prof. F. Q. C. Wood spoke briefly at the commencement of the
meeting on the advantages of a
Parliamentary Forum at a university.

Rooms which are ordinarily
used will be open for bookings.
The regulations aro few and far
between. Meetings must be over

must be limited. There is plenty
of room for several meetings to
take place at one time.
Whyte would like to find out if
enough clubs are interested In

broadcast for Sunday, November 1, at 10:30 over station CJOR. These half hour
programs will be entirely

Arrangements are now being
made for the Brock Concert Hour,
Tho aim of these noon-hour programs is to Introduce every type
of music, including both popular
and classical. '
Explanations of the pieces and
histories of the composers are being planned according to the response of the students
An Important plea is being made
by Tim Dauphinee, Director
of Musical Appreciation, for assistants, needed for administrative
work. All interested are asked to

all Glee Clubbers.
The Christmas concert is the
objective, and weekly or possibly
bi-weekly meetings for its preparation are on schedule. Light popular classics and suitable Christmas music and carols are to be
selected for the program.
The first meeting will get under
way next week, so watch the
board and THE UBYSSEY for
further detaib.
AMS Starts
Dance Disc
• A POPULAR record collection of 'basic' dance
music for use on the Brock
P,A. Systejn has been started in the AMS office. So far
twenty - five records have
been purchased and funds
enough for twenty-five more
are on hand.
Money for such records will be
deducted from the student pass
system fund, and also obtained
from a two dollar record rental
fee which will be charged to clubs
wishing to use these records at
their meetings or dances. Al-'
though these records will not be
on loan to students overnight, they
will be available at any time for
use In the Brock.
Sweet, swing ond jive fans alike
will bo satisfied while listening to
arrangements by Dorsey, Miller,
James, Duchin, Alvino Roy, or
such popular discs as Sonny Dunham's "Thinking of You," Bing^
"Sunday, Monday or Always," or
the Dulse's "One O'clock Jump."
Murdo Plans . . .
... Aud, Activities
Aud. Plan
LSE prexy, has announced that the auditorium will
bo given over to one type of
event on each day of the
week from now on.
The schedule is as follows: Mondays, Thursdays, and Fridays will
bo club meeting days; Tuesdays
have been allotted to pep meets and
Pass System events, and Wednesdays will be devoted to class elections and larger business meetings,
Clubs and other activities which

meetings nrc requested to arrange
their room bookings for meetings
to comply willi the meeting day
schedule as far as possible.
This plan is expected to straighten out thc seating problem in tho
auditorium, and by ensuring that
Pass System events do not coincide, it is hoped that attendance
ot such events will be increased.
"No Self-
Denial This
Year" WAG
• THERE   will   definitely
be   no   Self-Denial   tag
days this year. The omission
of this function points out
the War Aid Council's policy
this year of having more
major benefits and less regular ones since these tend to
become monotonous and tiresome.
However, if the WAC decides,
there will be major tag days at
intervals throughout the ycar
Tho main event on the War Aid
Council program will bo the Red
Cross Ball. Another important
item is tho International Student
Service Week. The money from
this goes to buy comforts for the
Canadian prisoners of war overseas.
First Freshman Stage Show
Makes University History
• TODAY at noon a history-making pep meet will take
place; history making, because it is purely a freshman
effort. Ron Grantham, originator and organizer of the idea,
has planned an entertaining program, featuring Steve Ken-
nelo's eight-piece outfit and "Marge" the vocalist.
Plan "Hen"
Party Oct. 15
• WITH 200 members behind her,
President Joan Fischer of
Phrateres has planned a program
of fun and frolic starting on October 15 with a "Hen Party.'
This is going to be In barnyard
style with cider 'n everything
(reminiscent of thc Frosh smoker ?? ?) Thc rest of thc program
promises just as much fun:
Formal Initiation at Brock Hall
Formal Co-ed Party
Tea for old members
Christmas Party   for  Alexandra
Neighborhood Children
Informal   Co-ed   Party   at   the
Peter Pan
Bccausc of wartime conditions
there will not be a tea for tho ncW
members, the firesides serving to
acquaint them with fellow members,
Steve Kcnnele not only leads, arranges and manages the aggregation, but also is a mean man on the
trumpet. The band for the last
three months, has been playing for
tho services. On Monday nights
it plays for the Navy League Seamen's Club. The vocalist, Marge, is
an ex-member ot Horace Heidt's
All the work for the Pep Meet
has been done by a freshman committee consisting of Yvette Morris,
Esther Roddan, Joan Blrkctt, Nancy Graves, Edith Cochrane, Don
Ferguson, BUI Stewart and Ron
Grantham. Two members of the
band, J. Cohen, drums; and J.
Crlbb, sax, are also freshmen.
There is a feeling abroad that
the freshman class is trying to
"show-up" the uppcrclass students.
This is not the case. According to
Grantham, they feel that because
so much has been done for the
class of '47 in the past, they in turn
should do something. Also, now
that they are full fledged undergraduates, they think they should
help contribute to the life at UBC.
They are fledgelings trying their
wings, as it were.
Tho committee will not organize
just one pep meet, but hopes to
put on other types of entertainment, as well, in the future. But
until the freshman elections on
Wednesday nothing definite can be
Mawdsley Deplores
Lack Of Courtesy
•   VIGOROUS  denunciation  of  UBC  students'  lack  of
courtesy to faculty members was expressed by Dean
Dorothy Mawdsley at the first meeting of the Social Problems
Club last Friday in Arts 100.
Looking over her audience of
feminine faces, Dean Mawdsley deplored the absence of men students, declaring, "One would think,
that the male students, as they are
Uie greater offenders, would be
more Interested in campus eU-.
quette than the women students."
She criticised students who
squeeze professors out of line at
bus terminals, advising that they'
will be the ones who suffer because their actions make the professors late.
' Dr. Mawdsley said that the average attitude of students towards f
their professors was too glib.
"Students today do not have even the courtosy of writing back a
word of thanks," she said. "Nor
do they drop In to say a word of
gratitude for a recommcndaUon or
promotion received."
"Books borrowed from professors  aro  often  returned  without
even a word of thanks," she continued. "Today's bad manners are
often products of thoughUessness
and are not intentional, but If a
student does not wish to be dubbed as discourteous then he
should always be conscious of his
Library Hours

• THE International Student Service, a worldwide organization recognized
as an official student relief
body, is advertising an urgent appeal for $8,000 and
all students are asked to contribute to the fund for destitute and bombed-out students in all occupied countries.
The money, which can be donated to a local ISS committee, or
directly to the International Student Service, Hart House, University of Toronto, will be used to
help students who are suffering
because of the present war. In the
past, |90,000 has been spent on
food, clothing, travel aid, medical
aid, hostels, and books for students
in China and Europe.
The fund is administered by an
international committee which is
responsible to the World's Student
Christian Federation and the Roman Catholic Student organization.
The committee has been responsible in the past for the feeding
of 15,000 starving students and has
contacted over 100 prison camps.
Prisoners in these camps have been
enabled to contact British Universities and ' write examination
Tho committee has also Insured
the provision of books and materials for study courses and has provided needed clothing and medicine for evacuated students in
For Aggies
• DURING the next two
weeks, the Aggie students will "go gay" at a skating party and their annual
The skating party will be held
on October 7, at 7:30 p.m. at the
Roller Bowl.
This year, the annual banquet is
to bo held in the ballroom of the
Georgia Hotel on Thursday, October 14, when the guest speaker

Ubyssey Poll  Shows Students Divided On Fraternity, Sorority Question
• ACCORDING to a recent poll taken on the
campus the majority of UBC
students are not wholeheartedly in favor of the University fraternities and sororities.
Nearly 59% of those questioned
were definitely in favour of fraternities but the remaining percentage were either apathetic and did
not wish to voice their opinion or
were against tho greek organizations on tho campus. The figures,
however, show that thc issue stands
at 2 to 1 for fraternities, discount
ing the opinion of the undecided
Most students questioned tho
system of "rushing" whereby a
student is asked to join an organization. They felt that it was not
fair to discriminate against the
minority who were not accepted.
Students voting.against fraternities
scorned this feature of cxclusive-
ncss and thought that it led to
unwclcomo "cliques" on the
Rushing is in full swing on the
campus at the present time and
many students pointed to thc methods used as concrete'examples .of
why they did not favor societies.
One fifth ycar scienceman said
simply that, "I am against them"
in a polite but firm voice. A vivacious freshette considered tho matter for a short while then said:
"Although you make some good
friends, your friends are limited
to a patricular group of people. In
sororities there is too much fuss
and bother over legacies."
A fraternity sophomore rushee
has this to say about them:  "In
my opinion there is not a very
great need for fraternities or sororities. However, they aro a decided advantage to a fellow from
Six sophomore sorority rushees,
puffing carelessly on cigarettes, replied to the query about Greek
letter societies in this manner. "We
aro impartial to sororities, but we
aro infatuated with those big,
handsome fraternity men."
Speaking very seriously, a senior
sorority sister spoke up for the
societies. "When a sorority is es
tablished thcro aro many benefits
to be reaped from such an affiliation," she said.
A fifth year chemical engineering
student, Barry Sleigh, head of the
Inter-Fraternity Council, stated:
"On tho campus of UBC, fraternities have never been very strong,
Only those who joined fraternities
can give a true picture of fraternity life. Being a fraternity man,
myself, I feel that tho advantages
of fraternities completely overwhelm their disadvantages."
An Arts '^47 man says that frat
ernities are tho worst evil that
man ever brought to the university
campus. They create cliques which
are a bad thing for any society.
One democratic Artsman was
neither for or against fraternities.
"I don't think it is a question of
whether the societies are good or
bad," he said.
If people want to join or form
organizations, that is OK by me.
If they don't, that's all right too.
It Is up to the Individual, to decide, not a self-appointed group of
critics. Page Two-

•    From The Editor's Pen » » »
Are We Helping ?
Last week two officials of Vancouver's
war industry plants visited the campus and
literally begged the director of the student
employment bureau to supply two hundred
men to fill as many jobs. Because of the lack
of workers to take over such essential positions, the city's contribution to the war effort in keeping production up to standard,
is in danger of a considerable reduction.
Not only are there jobs in ship yards
open, but also there are many opportunities
for part-time work in various non-essential
industries. For those students who find it
difficult to spare the time to travel to distant
parts of the city for such wqrk,. the employment bureau offers several openings for student labour on the campus, and in buildings
used mainly by the students.   ■..;'
There has not been for several years the
demand there is today for labour, particularly part-time labour. Students with a few
hours a day free from lectures and labs have
the opportunity to earn extra money to supplement their budgets, and at the same time,
to respond to the call of their country at war.
For the situation is so extreme that this
request for assistance assumes the proportion of a challenge to the students at the
university. This is an unofficial call to duty.
Can we meet it satisfactorily?
Answering the test will mean the
relinquishing of a few hours of recreation
during the week, and perhaps a little additional cramming to keep up with studies.
But this is a worthy reason for any sacrifice
on the part of the students.
While such a condition is not to be
condoned on account of this fact, it does present the opportunity to prove to the public
that the university is willing and eager to
accept responsibilities not directly connected with academic activities. Success in helping to alleviate the present urgent need will
aid in convincing the populace that UBC
can be depended upon in an emergency to
roll up its figurative sleeves with the rest
of the people who are working harder than
ever before to keep the war machine running smoothly and adequately.'
Some students already have obtained
'after-hours' employment. They, and the
many students from other universities who
have done likewise, can vouch for the feasibility of the arrangement. Do not let us
forget that our success*, or failure, will reflect upon the university as a whole, and
may, in like manner, ensure or detract from
the respect accorded the institution.
The Graduates Corner.. By Christy McDevitt
EDITOR'S NOTE: Christy McDevitt,
a member of the editorial staff of the
Vancouver Sun, is not a graduate of this
University, rather; as he puts it, "a
graduate of the school of hard knocks
and big rocks". Thus, as a "graduate"
of old SHKBR, he pens his advice here
to varsity students.
•   I WAS broke in Butte, Montana.
By a peculiar coincidence, I was also
hungry. I didn't have a job and the landlady
had reached the point where she beat me to
the punch when I poised on my toes and
tried each cheerless morning to tell her this
was the day I would rpturn laden with gold
which I would pour into her churlish lap.
We had words, this contumelious warden of gloom and I; at least, I had words but
I wasn t allowed to pollute the salle-a-
manger with them.
The lady presiding over the destinies of
the house had just one word: "Out."
I took my departure after packing my
fifty-three articles—a deck of cards and a
tooth-brush—and vowed- that never again
would I darken the bathtub of that inhospitable menage.
Gin-Soaked Destiny "
The darkness of night found me, I still
don't recall who tipped it off,, wandering the
streets lonesome as a flea in a haunted house.
Then destiny, in the person of a gin-soaked
newspaper reporter, slapped a grimy hand
on my shoulder and pushed; me headlong
into a whirlwind of.&vents that has since
that day kept me in a mental revolving door.
His city editor, this Bacchanalian
homme de lettres informed me, required the
immediate services of just such a one as I.
Walk right in, the lad hiccoughed,' tell him
you are a reporter of the old school, mention
a score of journals on which you toiled, but,
and this warning was delivered with typical
rum-pot solemnity, don't admit that you
have ever had the misfortune^ to walk
through the portals of any University in this
land of golden opportunity—bring your own
I went into the smoke-filled paper-littered city room of this estimable breakfast-
table journal of Montana Machievelism and
perjured my soul.
I reeled off a list of dairy newspapers
until I began to sound like the one-legged
newsy who peddles the out-of-town chronicles in the heart of Times Square.
The City Editor, an anaemic individual
with a nose like a reaping hook, didn't even
look at me.
"Been to college?" he asked.
"No sir."
"Must be a booze-fighter."
"Oh, no sir."
He gave me a couple of clippings, muttered something about "rewrite" and turned
me loose.
I got through that night. Next afternoon
I was in again and while it may sound unbelievable to those who labor under tho delusion that crashing a newspaper office is
akin to obtaining a unit of sawdust, I stayed
on and on.
But, since then I have found few City
Editors so allergic to college men and not
until .1 was persuaded to stand for legislative election in British Columbia's Cariboo
did I encounter the university obstacle
Bored Kittens and Farmers'
I was publishing a weekly then. Tho
Wells Chronicle. In a benevolent moment I
agreed to carry the banner for the glory of
the Conservative party and for the salvation
of the Cariboo.
I prepared my campaign. I wrote
beautiful speeches which were delivered to
a bored kitten in my basement. I buttonholed prospective voters on the street. I
went out of my way to kiss all the farmers'
daughters for I understood that was a sure
path to Victoria.
Right in my innocent heart I believed
that I was going to follow the birds to British
Columbia's capitol and everywhere I appeared I brought a message of cheer and hope
to citizens who needed beer and soap.
I knew, Gad, how I knew, my cause was
lost! when I overheard a chance remark one
night as I brctight a thrilling meeting to a
Climbing down from the dais on which
I had been emulating an egotistical chanticleer, I wandered through the mob of more
than fifteen persons who had nothing else
to do that night. I was in the groove. I was
also in a rut. One woman with more com-
monsense than diplomacy whispered loudly
to a companion.
"He'll never get elected. He talks like
he had a collidge eddication."
I adore college people. The burning of
the school got me out of the Third Grade.
I wasn't elected.

• LIFE   at   UBC   during
these times can have its
dreary moments. The dark
season ia approaching. Work
is piling up. Some deferments are overdue; and most
of them have been labelled

Other things are hovering
over undergraduate minds,
but somehow there's always
little sparkles of humor bobbing up here and there.
I don't know what we'd do without the characters, the people who
are always doing something unusual. This university abounds
with them. Thc Registrar puts tho
official total at 2372.
I suppose you don't like being
labelled o character, but to me
everybody is a character. Surly
John Ferry, former senior editor
of The Ubyssey, expounded this

It seems as if a blonde Phi Delt

decided that ho too wanted to give
his pin away, this time to a slim,

borrowed pin from the D.G. . . .

Ubyssey Presents Helpful
Rules To "Keep lt Clean"
• LIKE John Brown's body, the clean-up campaign goes
marching merrily on month after month, year after year.
Students, council, profs, come and go but still the little pieces
of paper, old lunches, gum wrappers and suchlike remain
to get hounded off the campus by energetic would-be janitors.
It  is  certain  that  even  if  the       ——————————-
•Page Three
student body in general do not
keep thc campus clean the student
council, fraternities and sororities
will take the new clean-up campaign to heart. But, in order that
everybody may follow a general
plan, herewith is a set of rules
(unofficial) that should be of great
help in the campaign and to the
student council, bar none:
RULE ONE: About luncheon in
the Caf. Please take off your
shoes when entering the Caf. Bare
feet will pick up any odd bits of
glass, gum, or the noon specials
that are lying around on the floor.
Tho pink, soft as a baby's cheek,
feet of freshmen are best for this
RULE TWO: All seniors, having
caloused foot pads from the COTC,
will be required to wear woollen
sox. They will be used to soak
up any old splashes of coffee or
coke or liquids lying on the floor.
RULE ..THREE: ..when ..eating
lunch, throw the paper wrappings
into a neat pile beside the table
and wait for a councU member to
some along and sweep them up.
RULE FOUR: Empty bottles
must—and this is definite—be
thrown onto the floor. This will
keep all the tables clean. The
floor can be handled nicely by the
bare feet and any old council
members lying around. As an added precaution all cigarettes and
butts must be thrown into the piles
of waste paper in thc hope that
they will start a fire and save the
trouble of sweeping the place out.
RULE FIVE: At the end of the
meal raise the trays in the air
and spin them towards tho table
for collecting trays. The table will
bo marked with a large red bull's
eye, and anyone hitting the mark
will be awarded a free lunch.
RULE SIX: Anyone taking
bottles from the Caf must depost
them on the parking lot. The auto
owners can get re-caps now so
don't worry.
RULE SEVEN: About walking
on thc gross. The gardeners are
going to lay down new sidewalks
In the places where thc students
generally short-cut Walk on the
grass as much as possible In these
places so the ground will be smooth
and hard for the concrete to rest
RULE EIGHT: This campaign
will continue to the end of the
year so start obeying the rules
NOW. VL these rules are not followed correctly other and more
drastic ones will be published In
The Ubyssey.

Students Urged
To Get Passes
•   STUDENTS   who   hove   not
picked up their students passes
ore urged to do so as soon as possible.
AMS treasurer Don Ross, says
that to date approximately 2000
tindergrads have called for their
passes, and he hopes that distribution will be completed before
Ross also reminds students that
their new cards are not as strong
as last year's, and must bo well-
looked aftcrr-carelessly mutilated
passes will not be replaced.
Thanks are due to Vancouver
theatre managers for their consideration in honoring our new
type of pass and any student who
misuses his pass will be dealt with
by the Discipline Committee.

Varsity In Debut
• DUE TO military complications, the Varsity team was
missing five of their prominent stars at the game on
Saturday afternoon at Powell Street grounds. Nevertheless,
the game was closely contested. The final score was two
to nothing against us.
The Varsity eleven started off a bit shakily, and during
the first half, Pro-Recs drove in two quick goals. For the
rest of the contest, though, the Varsity team settled down and
played a superb game, despite the fact that they were held
to no score. The game ended 2-0 for the Pro-Rec gang.
Aussies Falter
Before Pressure
• IN THE stupendous game on Saturday afternoon, the
blue and gold boys trimmed the Anzacs from Jericho to
the tune of 18-5. Although the Varsity lads had only one
previous practice, they pounced through the air force squad
with practically no effort.
  Already, It looks UkeU^.C. will
take the lead in the English Rugger field this season. The Anzacs
rate high in these circles, but their
defeat by an unorganized Varsity
fifteen has definitely given them a
""       set-back.

Tho forward line of the Varsity
crew shows great promise, and with
a little more practice, it should
be one of the finest in the league.
The defense, especially the halfback line was particularly steady.
Despite the poor showing made
in the first half, we expect that
the team will settle down for a
very successful year. Players are
reminded to watch the notice board
for announcements of practices and

who is a freshman and also knows
how to handle the footba' has already made up the lineups for
•   MAURY VAN VLIET got to work in earnest on all the
little would-be Thunderbirdies at last Thursday's practice. This was made evident by his reorganization of last
year's "Skins versus Shirts" system. In this arrangement,
the coach splits up the boys into two teams so that they get
a workout under actual game conditions.
Another thing was the shifting around that the players
have had. Coach Van Vliet has moved Harry Franklin into
the right forward spot, with Ole Bakken as his understudy.
Sandy Robertson has also been shifted. He is now a guard.
Here aro the new (and temporary) positions: Gordie
Sykes and Don Woodhouse, centre; Harry Franklin and Ole
Bakken, right forward; Art Johnson and Bob Hetherington,
left forward; Robertson, Stilwell, Yorke, McLeod and McGeer, guard.
At the Intra-mural Rally, last Friday noon, most of the
crowd were impressed by the method in which Sandy Robertson and Art Stilwell made Ole Bakken and Bob Hetherington look silly in a short game of "chink". However, there's
a story behind the simple whitewashing.
You see, these two Thunderbirds, Stilwell and Robertson
have been the spark of many a team. Somewhat like the
"Gold-Dust Twins", Jimmy Bardsley and the late Art Will-
oughby, they have been playing together for several years.
I first saw them together as Juniors in the Sunday
School league. They played for Holy Trinity, and missed the
championship that year by a single basket to Ryerson. But
they made up for this in the following season, when they
graduated to the Intermediate B Church League. Again for
Trinity, they took the city championship.
Then, the next year, I saw them at it again, this time
with the Sparlings quintette in the Inter A league. In this
league they cleaned up, but definitely. Not satisfied with
the City Crown, they went on and took the Lower Mainland,
and finally, the B.C. title.
They also starred with Kitsilano, who cleaned up in the
City High School league. Last year, of course, they were
picked up for the Senior A Thunderbirds in their freshman
year. Once again, this season, they look like the stars of the
Senior League.
Another set are Don Woodhouse and Bob Hetherington
who hail from Vancouver Island's basketball circles. This
year we are looking forward to seeing lots of action from
these two pairs of "Gold-Dust Twins".

For Men
• THE English Rugby and soccer
teams should be greatly strengthened with the final definite announcement that there will be no
chance of any Canadian Football
team on thc Campus this season.
Harry Franklin, Men's Athletic
Representative, made the sad news
definite yesterday. There appears
tc. be no hope of reviving interests
ir. a league with any downtown
teams ;o all that was It ft was to
t'rop tho plan.1; aUo;,ther.
But this new.; isn't a.s bad a.i it
seenis. Most players of the Canadian code are adept at playinj
the English stylo just as well so
if the players should transfer their
interests there probably will be
two English teams this season.
Geof. Hill, English Rugby manager, will be glad to receive anyone Interested in playing for ono
of his two proposed teams and
they should get in touch with him
as soon as possible.
But because the Canadian game
has been dropped doesn't mean
that the strip will be left unused.
Jligh School teams have applied
for its use again this season as
last and this should help a great
deal towards fostering interest
amongst the junior players.
• WOMEN, you are being
pushed around! ! Little do you
realize how these subtle men with
their underhand ways are trampling you into the dust of this campus. Your reporter was shocked
to read in the last editorial of this
rag that "It Is hoped" that the
swimming pool could be used by
the coeds too. TO BE HOPED.
What the hell! We must see that
this building IS used by the women. Naturally we expect to contribute our share of the work and
money towards this project. We
aren't bums.
Are we going to allow the men
to build a shiny new streamlined
gym while we continue to use
that old barn that is now called a
gymnasium? We must certainly
not. We are in tiie majority on
this campus (oh! sad fact!).
Therefore our wishes should be
respected, and more than respected, something should be done a-
bout them.
And another place that women's
rights are being neglected Is on the
sport's page of this paper. If your
eyesight Is bad you probably haven't seen this column since It started. Why should we be stuck away
in the corner with print so small
you need a magnifying glass to
read It? Girls, stand up for your
rights. Everyone plan her own
campaign and let the boys know
we intend to get what we want.

• INTRAMURALS got off to a
running start yesterday at
12:30 when the programme opened
with two courts of volley ball displaying really fast play. The Commerce team, not fully represented,
defaulted to thc EcU captained by
May McQueen and managed by
Goldie Walker. The 4th year Arts
team was taken to the cleaners by
the Aggies to the* tune of 40 to 23.
The Aggie captain is Boo Hutchison, and the 4th year Arts team
was headed by Bev. Adams.
The games are held at noon In the
gym, and promise to be fast and
furious. Girls wishing to play
Intra-mural sports should contact
their team managers as soon as
possible. Among the many girls
seen turning In good performances
at yesterday's meet were Peggy
Burton, Bernice Williams, and
Norma Lovick.
Aw Ful Of Thought
•' SOME OF THE MOST PLEASING WORDS that have reached our *
ears this fall has been the news that tho Anzacs from Jericho are
contesting a number of our sports.
They are in the English rugger league and played a practice game
on ttie campus last Saturday. They have campaigned for a basketball
team in tho city league to the extent that there aro considerations in the
wind that tho island hoopsters maybe moved over here in order to
fill out a good roster of players.
Now comes an announcement that Ihcy are going to enter a full
team of cross country racers in our classic of this month or next. They
have signified their intention to run this race even before any of tho
University teams have done so. No one can claim that they are slow,
or is tho fault ours?
So, CC thinks that the Yanks are a certain for the World Series?
Well, I don't believe it. What have the Yanks got? What has CC got
to back them with?
You can all see it for yourself but I can confirm your thoughts
thoughts herewith by saying that, the Cards will take the Series 4 game3
to 2. I always did like Cards. Five Hundred is my favourite. What
is yours? Most people have liked Bridge. But the bidding in Bridge i3
too much like betting in Poker and poking is the opposite of yanking
which brings us right back to the New Yorkers.
If anyone has a New Yorker kicking around, that will not be
refused down here. But nuts to the Yankees.
LOST: Pair of colourless-rimmed
glasses In brown case on Wednes*
day. Finder please call Rosemary
Stewart, BAy. 0287.
Dougie Reid, Bob Lawson, and
Keith Macdonald, all ex-Kits rugger stars, led the university lads
to easy victory. At one point Mitten went over the line but forgot
to make a touch, thus the score
might easily have been 21-5, or
for that matter, 51-5.
Over twenty players turned out
for this first event of the Rugger
season. Kicking was expert, running was lively, and the 3-llne
superb.        •
All, except the captain, Roy
Waldon, of the Anzacs are heading
back to Australia in the very near
future, which will probably mean
that the down-under boys will not
I* in the league this year.
Any freshmen Interested in joining the Rugger squad should get
a letter to Mr. Van Vliet by today.
There will be a practice tonight at
6:00 o'clock.

He: "WeU, I'm practice."

• DESPITE a rather poor turn
out of freshmen last Friday the
Intramural sports rally was
worthy of its intentions. Between
one hundred and fifty and two
hundred students were entertained
by campus artists and the presentation of cups.
Tommy Keenleyside and Don
Robertson, champion and runner-
up respectively in last year's Intramural table tennis tournament
displayed their talent in two
exhibition fames. Tommy showed
ono and all that ho still was the
better man by taking both games,
21 to 17 and 21 to 15. Both players
complained that they had not had
a chance to get into condition or
tho scores would have been entirely different.
In a Chink game of basketball
Ole Bakken and Art Hetherington
matched points with Art Stilwell
and Sandy Robertson. Both pairs
of players were evenly matched
and at the end of a few minutes
the latter team was only slightly
ahead of the tint duo.
Mr. M.L. Van Vliet took over
near the end of tho programme to
present the cups to the winning
clubs of last year's competitions.
There were no cups for some of
the games but a meeting ls to be
held at which plans for the purchase of trophies for these sports
will be made.
The deadline date for entrees of
intramural teams has been lengthened somewhat. The time for
names has now been set for Tuesday If at all possible. The team
lists should consist of not less
than 25 names.
Once upon a time, a campaigning
senatorial candidate promised his
supporters a great works project,
such as a dam, if he were elected.
He wasn't elected, so he just didn't
give a dam.
