Homecoming bounces
Swing, swing, swing!
—mouldy morgue photo
KICKING UP THEIR HEELS, a couple of Homecoming enthusiasts put on an impromptu
performance on track at last year's Homecoming football game. The '64 whoopee starts
at 1:30 p.m. at stadium, with chicken barbecue and the annual grid tilt.
Pep rally blast
Lou's in the limelight
Homecoming Pep Rally is
always a blast, and this year's
explosive program is no exception.
Blast-off time is 12:30 p.m.
in the gym and continues until 2:15 p.m.—all for a measly
35-cent cover  charge.
Big man at the Pep Meet
will be Lou Gottlieb, zany
emcee of the now-defunct
Also at the meet will be
the Booster Club, Pep Band,
Cheerleaders, Frank Gnup
and his famous introduction
of football players and presentation of the Great Trekker
award to George Cunningham
by AMS president Roger McAfee.
Queen   candidates   will  be
introduced (crowning is Saturday night at the big

Four top bands
set for dances
Hello Music, Hello Swing!
That's the theme of this year's Homecoming dances. These
dances are always the best of the year, and this year there's
no doubt they will be again — a truly gala windup to
UBC's biggest student Homecoming Festival ever.
First, the price is only $3.75
a couple. Modest, no? And for
that measly price, you get the
swinging sounds of four bands,
count 'em, four.
In the Field House, Homecoming features the great
Dave McMurdo Jazz Big Band,
along with the vocal group,
The Chessmen. In the Armory,
dig the wild rhythm and blues
sound of Little Daddy and the
Bachelors, along with Lance
Harrison's swinging Dixieland
group. Schmaltz is out, swing
is in!
• •    •
And in both buildings,
Homecoming features a concert
by the Goodtime Singers, a
fabulous folksy group featured
many times on the Andy Williams Show.
After a lot of hassle, we
were lucky enough to get this
group, and those who have
heard their first LP agree
they're the West Coast's answer to the New Christy Minstrels.
And there's more. For the
first time ever, you'll be able
to attend both Homecoming
dances. After 10 p.m. your
ticket stub will enable you to
go back and . forth between
the buildings.
• *    •
And if you don't feel like
walking, we have a chartered
bus, supplied by Mr. Bennett's
organization, to ferry people
between the dances.
Climaxing the dances, of
course, will be the crowning
of the Homecoming Queen.
She will be crowned in the
Armory at approximately
10:15 by President John Macdonald, and will be crowned
in the Field House at approximately 10:45.
• •    •
Besides the Homecoming
Queen, two of the other beauti
ful candidates will be chosen
as Princesses to complement
the twice-crowned Queen's cabinet.
Price, again, for all this hilarity is only $3.75 a couple—
cheap. If you miss these
dances, you'll kick yourself.
This is the biggest gass of the
year, and there are only 1,200
tickets on sale. Get yours now,
in the AMS office in Brock
Keep Homecoming Green.
VIVACIOUS Musa Lincke,
1963 Homecoming Queen,
will see her successor crowned Saturday at dance. Pictures of 1964 candidates.

sling mud
Webster vs. Wasserman is
the situation today at noon in
Brock Lounge.
Homecoming presents a debate on "The Myth of the Poor
Along with these two proverbial noisemakers, the panel
includes Dr. Malcolm McGregor and student lawyer Peter
Object of the open forum debate is to present all sides of
the question: "Is the student
really poor, or is the whole
concept a fake?"
Is the student loan plan
really misused? Is it necessary
in the first place? Should the
Liberal Government really
give students 10,000 scholarships? Should companies go
out of their way to provide
summer jobs for students?
What the hell is the actual
financial situation of university students?
Don't miss this controversial hour of mudslinging and
other fun and games, today,
12:30 noon in Brock Lounge.
Admission only 10 cents —
cheap. Page 2

FLOATING ALONG, one of the Fraternity   floats   in  last  year's   Homecoming   parade
makes circuit of track  at football  game.  T his year's parade has drawn some 30 floats,
plus bands and sideshows.
Naughty, naughty parade
will flow with 30 floats
Like, avast! This year, the
Annual Homecoming Parade
has a nautical theme, and up
to thirty floats will parade
through downtown Vancouver
Saturday morning attempting
to prove that university students are indeed all wet.
Along with the floats, you'll
see all the queen candidates
(no truth to the rumor that
the engineers are entering a
mermaid), marching bands,
all the best things of a parade;
and the whole thing kicks off
from Georgia and Thurlow at
10:00 a.m.
For those of you (15,600 we

Everything from fried chicken to strippers will be featured at the stadium Saturday.
It's the annual Homecoming
Football Game between Southern Oregon State College and
Frank   Gnup's  Thunderbirds.
Starting at 1 p.m., the Aggies' chicken barbecue will
supply crisp Southern Fried
on the stadium track.
The show kicks off at 1:45
p.m., when the Homecoming
Parade winds its way through
the stadium, led by Arthur
Delamont's wild and wonderful
Pep Band and UBC's cheerleaders.
The game itself starts at 2
p.m. Then comes 60 minutes
of exciting, and we hope, victorious football.
The half-time show will be
a gasser. Man, like 51 nurses
and rehabilitation medical students   stripping   to   a    lively
tune, the cheerleaders reeling
with their ever-popular and
provocative cartwheels, and
'he hairy engineers roaring
about in their traditional fashion.
hope) that'll line the route,
here it is: starting at Georgia
and Thurlow, proceeding east
on Georgia to Burrard; north
on Burrard to Hastings; east
on Hastings to Granville;
south on Granville to Georgia;
west on Georgia back to Burrard.
After circling the downtown area, the parade will
disband and reform outside
the Varsity Stadium for presentation at the pre-game show.
Time for this is 1:45 p.m.
•    •    •
After reforming, the parade
will circle the inside of the
stadium once, the three winning floats remaining in the
stadium throughout the game.
The queen candidates will
disembark, and be seated in a
decorated royal box.
The game itself kicks off at
2:00 p.m. sharp.
A great way to spend a
morning, a great way to spend
an afternoon—the annual student homecoming parade and
football game.
See you there!
A new twist on ice —
a Homecoming bonspiel
Wanna beat some hapless alumni at curling—there's
just the event for you at Homecoming Festival '64.
Tomorrow in the Winter Sports Arena alums and students will battle each other.
There will foe 16 alumni rinks and 16 students (we still
have eight more to fill). The entry fee is $20 for students
and $29 for Alumni—information at the Alumni office.
There are three events and prizes for runners-up.
Car rally roars
on Friday noon
This year, a new event has been added to the student
Homecoming festival.
Through the co-operation of
the UBC Sports Car Club a
gigantic Sports Car Rally will
be held on Friday, October 23,
with the first cars leaving
from in front of Brock Hall at
12:30 p.m.
A crucial point that should
be explained before we go any
further is that you do not need
a "sports car" to enter this
For example, the latest rally
sponsored by the Sports Car
Club was won by a 1936
The next thing that should
be cleared up is just what a
sports car rally is. The object
of rallying is to get from point
A to point B following a given
set of instructions in a prescribed time or at a given
average speed.
Therefore the only equipment required  is  a  watch,  a
map, a speedometer that
Works, and someone riding
with you to read the instructions and direct your course as
a navigator.
The rally is divided into two
categories — teams and individuals.
There will be a perpetual
trophy for both the top individual and the top team.
There will also be dash
plaques for the winning team.
Pre-entry forms will be
available at the south end of
Brock noon today and Thursday and at the Sports Car club
hut (behind Brock) anytime.
As a final word of advice;
if you are stopped by the law
while participating remember
—your navigator might be expecting; or you're on your way
to visit your poor old granny,
but you are NOT on a sports
car rally. Good luck to all.

Queen crown.
One of them will be chosen
to wear it at the Homecoming
dances this Saturday.
The Queen will be crowned
twice — first at the Armory
and then the Field House.
Another two beauties will
be selected as princesses to the
twice-crowned queen.
At Thursday's Pep Meet the
Queens will be introduced and
voting will take place.

40 per cent of the total required to choose the winner.

reps, professors and a fashion
consultant to round out the
point total.
The lucky winner will receive a coat from Hudson Bay,
a sweater from Jantzen, a
gold signet ring from the college shop and the AMS, plus
a 1964-65 Totem yearbook.
The crown, donated by
Birks, will be awarded perpetually. The Queen candidates face a rigorous schedule
