MONTREAL, Nov. 9.—(By
Wire). — The Student Christian Movement has been banned from participation in any
McGiil Students' Society activity   until further notice,  it
was   announced   following   a
recent meeting of %he McGiil
Students' Executive Council.
Rseeon for this drastle stsp wae
given by offlesrs of the Students'
Society,   who  dsolared   that   the
S.O.M. at MrGIII had directly Impinged   upon  the  Jurisdiction  of
the B.E.C. In ths paat month.
The  B.C.M. has one  againat the
direct wishes, requests and orders
of  Council  In  holding  a  financial
campaign on the McQUl campua.
Stepa have been taken by the
Council to deal with members ot
the Students' Society who have contravened the request of Counoil In
this matter.
It   la   understood   that   theae
members of the B.C.M. who ee-
tlvoly took part In the campaign,
and who are membera of the Students'   Sooiety,   have   beon   summoned  before  Council  and disciplined.
The   S.C.M.   at   McOlll   does   not
come under the direct supervision
of Council, but as a result of their
failure to recognize the Jurisdiction
of the Council, the student governing   board   bas   declared   that   all
facilities  of   the   Students'   Society
are to be denied to the S.C.M. until
further notice.

Arts Aggie To
Overshadow All
Other U. Galas
Will Rival New
Year's Eve In
The development of the universe
is continuing, so the historians say;
and so are the plans for the riotous
Arts-Aggie  Ball.
Christmas is coming, so the storekeepers tell us, and so ls the Ball
Itself. Scheduled for exactly one
week from this Thursday, the Ball
promises to quite overshadow all
other university galas.
In spite of the accusations usually hurled at composed Artsmen or
at toiling Aggies, this year's Ball
will be no humdrum "annual affair."
The aspiring and daring Individuals preparing this year's schemes
have produced something quite beyond their apparent powers: colos-
cal novelties!
The   executive,    however,    not
satlafled  with   a  mere  aurfelt  of
novelties, have arranged for dee-
oratlona that will  rival  those of
New Vear'a Eve In Manhattan.
Nothing is being left undone this
year.   There will be a Pep meeting
a  week  from  Tuesday  when  Mart

theirs early.
Expenditure for
Proposed Wing
Foolhardy Idea
The building of a wing of
the Brock Memorial building
at the present time would be
little short of foolhardy, according to the body of opinion
opposing this measure on the
Just now the greatest and most
vital need of the Unlveralty Is for
Increased accommodation for classrooms, laboratories, and study
groups. Even those who flght most
strongly for the Brock Wing admit
How, then, can they fall to realise that the building of the wing
now would preclude any possibility
of a new Arts Building, or library
wing, or something else far more
necessary than a recreational centre.
Of course the forty-one thousand
dollars, which they rather vaguely
claim to be already collected, can
be used for no other purpose than
that for which lt was collected.
But it will be remembered that
this amount fell far short of the
Memorial Building objective of
9150,000 set for the 1936 campaign.
If 140,000 is spent now, the balance needed to complete the whole
structure will never be collected.
There ls tor these reasons no
suggestion that the $40,000 should
be turned over to the University
proper. The new classroom buildings will have to come from the
government, and the government
Now if the government sees us
putting up the second structure
within a year for "play" purposes,
as they, being what they are, will
be only too happy to style the
Brock Building, lt will be quite a
natural conclusion for them that
classrooms are not quite so needed
as President Kllnck and many others would have them believe.
The government, again being
what they are, would not be overanxious to disclaim credit for the
construction work, and thus escape
a great deal of the pressure now
forcing them to give the University
better accommodation.
(Turn to  Page 3:   See CON)
First proposed by the
Ubyssey several weeks ago,
the plan to build one unit
of the Brock Memorial
Union Building with funds
at hand for that purpose
has aroused considerable
interest around the campus.
Today, the Ubyssey presents both sides of the picture, arguments both for
and against the proposal. In
the two articles on either
side of this box will be
found those opposing opinions, and in the series of
interviews elsewhere in this
issue there is given a cross-
section of campus feeling
on this matter.
It is hoped by the Ubyssey that this symposium on
the Union Building question will be taken by Students' Council as the basis
for some sort of action
with regard to this matter.
Prof. F. H. Soward: I think it's
purely a point for the architect,
whether it's better economy to
build tho wing now or wait and
build the whole thing at once. I
don't think government policy
would be affected. The fact that
we're over-crowded has nothing
at all to do with the question.
The need exists for a recreational centre whether there are 1400
or 2400 students; plans were discussed long before there was any
Clarence Idyll (Book Exchange manager): I am definitely
in favor of starting work on the
Union Building. I don't aee why
it should handicap our future
expansion in any way, although
that ia for Council to decide.
Frank Patch (President Musical
Society): The 90 members of our
club, who try to crowd into our
one small dressing room-club
room backstage, are certainly in
favor of a Union Building. I don't
know much about the proposal,
but I do know that something
must   be  done.
Turn to Page 3. See OPINION
Construction of
$40,000 Unit to
Re lie ve Crowding
The fact that extra-curricular activity on this campus
is in desperate need of more
accommodation, coupled with
the presence on hand of at
least $40,000 raised for a
Brock Memorial Union Building, has been the basis of a
proposal that one unit of this
building be constructed without delay.
All atudenta are familiar with
the plight of many campua cluba,
with no apace available for them
they must get along In makeshift
ways, and the growth of a true
university    spirit    at    U.B.C.  ia
The    proposed    Union    Building
unit presents an adequate anawer
to thia problem, and at the same
time  provides   accommodation  for
certain  other  student  offices  that
have long needed room for expansion.
Tentative plans drawn up for the
wing of the Union Building provide
room for the following:
First floor: Book Exchange,
strip room, C.O.T.C. offices and
parade room.
Second floor: Students' Council
business offices, and four or six
rooms suitable as club headquarters.
Third floor:  Studenta'  Council
board   room,   A.M.S.   president's
and   treasurer's   offices,   several
more club rooms, probably alx.
Such a building would relieve the
cramped   conditions   of   a   number
of campus offices,  and would  provide   the  flrst  unit   of  what   will
eventually be the centre of all atudent activity at U.B.C.
Financial problems surrounding
the Union Building proposal are
not as formidable as they seem to
many. Money on hand was, for the
most part, raised by the students
in the campaign of two years ago,
and could be used by them if a vote
of the Alma Mater Society indicated that the society wanted the flrst
unit of the Brock Memorial to be

Dlaher, the meeting "investigated" the cauaes of recent Arts-
Science aquabbling, and decided
that the incentive to flght might
be considerably lessened if those
talcing part In campus riots were
fined by the Discipline Commit-
Two members of Council, Bob
Smith and Lyall Vine, made the
proposal that the Discipline Committee do its part in quelling disturbances.
Vine declared that he waa not in
favor of calling the apecial meeting, which was suggested to Council  by Thornloe.
"You ean't plead with our students," said Vine.
"There's probably nobody here
with enough guta to atay out of
a flght when It starts," he added.
Thornloe, speaking near the end
of the meeting, aald that those who
took  part in the  fighting of last
week would not be fined.
At the same time, it ia known by
the Ubyssey that the Discipline
Committee has summoned several
students to answer for their part
in the fights.
"Let's atart a tradition by getting rid of this disastrous type
of fighting," Thornloe declared.
It was stressed by speakers that
the cost of property damage incurred during fighting comes out
of student caution money.
John Bird, president of the Discipline Committee, stated that his
group has no desire to fine studenta
for fighting, but that such action
seems to be the only thing to do.
Others taking part in the discussion were John Garrett, Struan
Robertson, Charlie Campbell and
Graham Darling.

YJF/HY should youth be interested
W in politics? Think of the ballyhoo of election campaigns, the spectacle of the candidate trying to
make himself agreeable, the threadbare arguments of protection versus free trade, the patronage and
graft—why indeed?
And yet politics as the science
and conduct of public affairs,
should surely be a primary concern
of all good citizens—especially of
our young people who suffer the
most because of the short-sightedness and indifference of their elders.
The opportunity for education
and for a vocation, decent standards of living, life In a civilised
community, peace or war are all
directly or indirectly the result of
political policy. We live in a period when the area of public business is expanding rapidly and when
private business and personal living
cannot go on independently of community institutions and agencies
and conventions. No one any longer lives  or  can  live  unto himself!
There was a time when in certain   Boclal   circles,   the   discussion
of Religion and Politics was barred. Both were regarded as so controversial and so above national
considerations as to be unfitted for
ordinary discussion.
An easy way of avoiding ruffled
tempers antl the necessity of forming and clef ending opinions! Fortunately, Canada seems to be following the British lead when to be uninformed on political affairs is to
be an ignoramus, when to lose one's
temper over such matters is to be
a boor and when active participation in politics may indicate not the
grafter   but   the   patriot.
In our aohools and universities
youth has been given little Incentive  to  take  an   Interest   In  poll-
tics.    Why?    Is It the fault of the
curriculum   or   of   the   governing
bodies or of the teachers?    How
is the difficulty to be ovorcomo7
Later,   when   youth   looks   tor   a
position or gains a precarious foothold   on   the   ladder   up   which   he
hopes   to  scale  the  heights  to  success,   he   ls   advised   by   influential
friends to 'stick to his knitting" and
not to "meddle with politics."    Tbo
often the result ls he holds his job
at the expense of his integrity.
Youth and Politics
This Is the first of a series of artlelea that will be presented to
students across Canada under the caption, 'Youth and  Politics."
The first artlole ia wrlten by J. S. Woodsworth, M.P., federal
leader of the C.C.F. party.
Even the adventurous youth who
is willing to take the risk Is often
disillusioned by his contact with
politics   in   actual   practice.
The "political machine" ls not an
agency of democracy but rather the
tool of a self-seeking clique willing,
if not to sell to the highest bidder,
at least to compromise principle ln
order to win success at the polls.
Organization we must have but
surely something different from
that which has perpetuated the futility of our Canadian two-party
The ao-ealled "Issues" of most
of our election campaigns do not
touch   tha   vital   problama   which
confront our oountry. The slogans Instead of clarifying our
thinking, are usually simply appeals to prejudice. A fow months
ago in Ontario la looked aa If the
aoparate school question waa to
be made the "laauo" In tho forthcoming Provlnolal election: Now,
at the time of writing, it seems aa
if It la to be the C.I.O. Thua are
the real   Issues avoided.
Confessedly for the ordinary
"back-bencher" parliamentary life
is far from satisfying. Except for
the lawyers, sesional duties seriously Interfere with private business,
Involve many obligations and lead
nowhere. As r. life-work except for
the conformist, public life is very
Is It any wonder youth fights
ahy of politics or after a brief
trial la willing to let someone else
"do the dirty work"?
Yet here surely is a challenge to
youth. A score of high-minded, capable young Canadians could lift
Canadian public life to an altogether different level.
Blind traditional party loyalties
are breaking down. It ls not impossible for a man (or woman) to be
elected without the assistance of
the old-party machines.
Once elected he has a salary that
if spent with care, enables him to
live in reasonable comfort.; he has
free railway transportation; on the
floor of the House he has an unex-
celed opportunity of broadcasting
his ideas; between sessions he may
consult with or organize or endeavor to educate his constituents or
carry on spoken or written propaganda across  the  country.
Of course he must not look forward to political advancement —
though if the old-party leaders consider him sufficiently promising he
will  he given  the  chance.    At tbe
next election he may be defeated;
he must be willing to take the risk.
But 20 men would not be defeated.
And if they were, they would have
laid the foundations for a new political organization that one of these
days would transform the public
life ot Canada.
During the Great War thousands
of our young men sacrificed comfort, life-work, the prospects of a
home-life itself for a life of adventure, for an ideal, for what they
thought meant the welfare of the
Are there 'not ln our universities
today young men and women who
would throw themselves Into a political campaign to save Canada?
Remember,   this   means   something  of the same  high   Idealism
and  reckless courage,  but alao a
dogged    perseverance    that    will
keep   on   even   without  the   emotional   stimulus   of   physical   conflict  or the encouraging  plaudits
of the irowd.
Let  me  repeat  —  Twenty  high-
minded,   capable,  young  Canadians
could do the job.    Who will undertake  to  discover  and  organize  the
twenty? Two

News from Montreal indicates that the S.C.M. is having
trouble on the McOill campus, and that the student council
there has taken swift steps to deal with infractions of regulations and has inflicted rather severe punishment on the
It will be remembered that when the S.C.M.'s code infractions on the U.B.C. campus came to light, the matter was
dealt with by our legislators, although with considerable
delay, in such a way as to avoid trouble, and to give the most
satisfaction to each side in the controversy.
At McGiil the S.CM.'s crime—practically the same as
that at U.B.C.—was dealt with without compromise. It was
severely disciplined.
It might be well to compare these two councils and their
actions. What the comparison proves 1b difficult to say at
the present time. However, it seems evident that the Christian compromise of the U.B.C. Council is directly opposed to
the action of the McOill body, which met the S.C.M. on their
own grounds.
We like our Councils decision better.
Six columns across the front page of this issue, is presented an article by J. S. Woodsworth, Canadian C.C.F. leader,
entitled, "Youth and Politics." It is the first in a series to be
written by prominent members of every political group in
the Dominion.
This particular article is not printed merely to fill space
or because it happens to come to us typewritten. It is printed
because we feel that it contains a message for college students, and because it has a message of value. Mr. Woodsworth
does not take the advantage he might have under the circumstances to "plug" the policies of the C.C.F., although he
does take a few well directed cracks at the established
parties and systems.
Rather, his article is more in the nature of an older
statesman's suggestions to the youth of his country. He does
not say "support the C.C.F."; he says, "take an interest in
politics,"—something that the Canadian youth, especially at
U.B.C, is too prone to ignore.

A base Conference has been arranged by Miss Laura Holland and
Miss Mary McPhedran for one class
period. It ls expected that the Hon.
O. M. Weir, Provincial Secretary,
will  give  a  lecture  ln  March.
This is the third year that a
course in Social Service has been
offered. The first course was sponsored by the Federation of Social
Agencies and the Junior League.
The registration in the course last
year was close to 200.

Test   Reveals
Presence of T.B.
A tuberculin survey is being
made next week by the University
Health Department.
In a recent Vancouver high-school
survey, taking in all olasses of stu-
dnt, B0% of those examined reacted
positively to the test. The results
at U. B. C. are expected to be proportional.
The  test  determines   the   beginning of any chest condition. A positive    reaction    means    tubercular
germs are present, but not neces
sarily developed.
However, positive recationa will
be followed by X-rays if a further

Signifying the importance of the
test is the fact that of 800 students
examined this year over 300 have
decided  to take the test.
The project is made possible by
the Chest Division of the Provincial
Government. There is no cost to
the student.

Students' Council haa appointed a committee on overcrowding, and the committee haa been

misgivings regarding the oommittee. Not that lt la not a strong

objections are on the matter of
Although the committee is not
giving any publloiyt to Ita work, tt
is almost safe to assume that it is
considering waya of Impressing the
government with the need of assisting the university.
Any direct appeal to Victoria
would be uaeless. Students of this
university must get the public in
the right frame ot mind before government oan budge. Concerted aotlon on the part of the atudenta la
needed, action that will get the public thinking in terms of the university, as they did once before When
students had the nerve and Ingen-
unity to stage a spectacular campaign.
In Victoria, the budget will be
brought down tomorrow or Friday.
There is no time for our oommittee
to affect expenditures of the present session of the Legislature. What
ahould be done, however, la to demonstrate our need ao forcibly to the
public, that the next budget in Victoria will Include aubatantlal relief

Off and on tor the paat year or
so I have suggested to members of
the Musioal Sooiety that they bend
their efforts in the direction ot establishing some tradition on thia
campus in the way of operatic productions.
Not that the present annual productions do not go to making up a
really fine tradition. There are,
however, some other possibilities
that would tend to make the society
even more useful than it now ls.
Ollbert and Sullivan, to many of
us, represent the best ln what we
might term, "The age of light
opera." It Is thetr work that entertains us, and is at the same time
typical of hundreds of other ventures ln the same musical field.

It was a member of the Musical
Society who answered that objection in a talk with me a tew weks
ago. He Btated that, playing mainly to students, the light opera
cycle could and would pay, as the
society could afford to buy scenery
and costumes, to be kept as permanent property.
Two student performances, and
one or two for downtowners could
be staged at little added expense
after the first cycle was over. The
first years would be the hardest,
but a little straining and careful
planning could make the cycle a
real   success.

Campus organisations are often forced to smart under the barbs
of critical comment from members
of the faculty. To a certain extent,
comment of this sort ls to be encouraged, tor it shows a healhty
interest on the part ot professors
ln the extra-curricular activities ot
the student body.
All too seldom do students themselves take sufficient note of what
is going on about the campus to be
able to give well-considered and
useful criticism. It is well that faculty members, with their experience and wisdom, take steps now
and then to suggest a better way
to do things, and assist inexperienced youth to keep on the right
There is, however, another side
to this question. Too much of faculty criticism is unnecessary. Too
much of it is couched ln terms of

Professors who take a genuine Interest in student affairs
should have the right to make suggestions, provided they are useful
and well-meant. Those who delight
only in tearing things apart, without giving any plan for reconstruction, should stay to their field,
where they are more at home.
Relations between student clubs
and the faculty have always been
cordial on this campus. Without
the aid ot staff members many
clubs would have died long ago.
.Hard feeling and distrust has
been the only outcome of the critical efforts of those professors who

Martin Harvey Asks
For "Plus" Element
In Christian Circles
Introduced as a widely travelled,
witty and Informative speaker, Martin ti, Harvey spoke to a group of
students  last Friday  in  Arts  100.
Mr. Harvey came to the oampua
at the invitation ot the B.C.M. He
ia a graduate of N.Y.U., and la affiliated with the Christian Youth
Counoil of North Amerloa.
The apeaker voiced a need, to use
his own words, for a "mora vital
interest In social problems" and a
"plus" element ln Christian circles.
To sum up his remarka, Mr. Harvey declared that eaoh atudent hae
a responsibility to do more, to
achieve a clearer vision, to make
definite decisions, and above all, to
atep away from their environment
in order to get a new perspective.

"Aw, nuts," a rude fellow who

He no ndered
and pondered over
his problem, and
one day he waa
passing a bank
and he aaw in the
window a sign
that said that
safety deposit boxes were rentable
at f8 a month.
"That's just my dish," said the
little fellow.
«    *    *
So he walked into the bank and
he rented a safety deposit box.
"What do you want a safety deposit box for?" asked the clerk.
"You haven't any securities."
"I have the aecurity of myself,
haven't I?" suggested the Ijttle
man. "I can do what I wish with
a safety deposit box, can't I?"
"Of course," said the clerk, "you
can do anything you wish with your
safety deposit box, but may I aak
what you intend to do with thia
particular one?"
"Not at all," said the little man.
"I don't mind a bit telling you.
You see, I'm a fugitive from a
matrimonial thong and I don't want
anybody to know about it. I just
want to crawl into the box and for
you to throw away the key and I
think I'll be safe there because nobody dares open safety deposit
boxes, does he?"
"You shall be quite safe," aaid
the clerk, being a good clerk, "and
your wishes shall be met, as ordered."
So the little fellow got into his
box and curled himself up and went
peacefully to sleep.

This latter purporting to come from a friend of

Whiskers in The Dark
Chapter Plve
Far below the street level of
Chinatown a dim light burned in
the ohambera of Chang Suey, where
he knelt in prayer before the Ooon
Ood'a shrine. Presently he arose,
resplendent ln his dragon robee, the
IncenSe rising round him, and
turned his malevolent yellow eyee
to the corner where the wretohed
aapBoberta lay bound.
"Waa it not you. white peeg, who
said that aneke paredea are childish?"
sapBoberta groaned a feeble assent.
"Wae it not you," continued
Chang, hla voioc oold aa atecl, "who
told your fellow students to beheve
like adults?"
Again sapBoberta groaned.
"And yet waa it not you who removed the nether garmente from
the Artaman Max Rerrlt last Thursday?" hissed Cheng.
Before the unfortunete sapBoberta oould answer, a atrange figure
buret into the room.
The newcomer waa tall and lean,
and carried himself with a military
assurance. His Harria tweeds were
obviously Bond Street, while the
bronsed nordio feoe beneath the
blaokm ask suggested long periods
in the tropics. Handing his Horn-
burg hat, atiok and gloves to the
amased Ooom By, he preaented hla
card to Chang himaelf.
Chang blanohed at whet he reed.
"J. Meredith Tutt!" he exclaimed.
"Not the J. Meredith . . ."
"Late of the Ninth Poona Lancers

nailing to aomeone outside. "Bring

open fire crackled, and aet it
againat the wall. Two pointers, an
alrdale, and several Irish aettera
entered the room and arranged
themselves artistically on the
hearth. Hlggina hung a mounted
lion's head and two hunting printa
over the mantel, aerved a whlakey
and soda, and departed.
"Jolly nice quartera you have
here, o' man," said Tutt. "Cosy
and all that aort of thing." He lit
his briar.
"Bast ls East and Weat ia West
and never the twain ahall meet,"
chanted Chang ln his most occult
voice, lighting another stick of In
"Come out from behind those
whiskers, Dr. Swage!" cried Tutt.
"Nobody else could recite Kipling
that way!"
At the aame Inatant a violent explosion shook the ohamber, followed by a distant babble ot voices.
"The Japanese!" exclaimed Tutt.
"Heta Ksl to the rescue!" exclaimed  aapBoberta  cheerfully.
"YoU're both wrong," aald a familiar voice above them. "Ham-
bury'a cigarette lighter almply ex*
ploded on him egain." Scrlbblewell

from the chandeliers, wicked Luers

"The lights!" soramed aapBoberta auddenly. "Stop him somebody I"
He was too late. A wlng-Jlng
flaahed through the air, glass tinkled, and the room went black.
The floor auddenly opened beneath them and the four anglo-
aaxona plunged down Into blaoknsss
till they struck cold, smelly weter.
"We'll drown like ratal" screamed sapBoberts In terror.

Armistice Signed 19 Years

Inside the main entrance of the Science Building, dark

Then,   when   the   peoples   ot   the
world pause for a brief moment to

remember another war which was
to end all wars, the university will
do honor unto her own dead.
As rank upon rank ot new-formed
armies march past the cenotaphs
of the world with their inscription,
"Lest we should forget," students
on the campus will pay humble
homage to the memory ot other
students who paid the supreme sacrifice.

call of their country. Of thoso,
32 remained forever on the battlefields of Europe, going down to a

Others returned home, some with
medals for especial valor, some
maimed, crippled, health destroyed.

alive   with   emotion   and   deeds   ot
student sacrifice and heroism.

Altogether one-third of all atudenta registered since the opening
of the  university onllotod, forming the "D" Co'y ef the 196th Battalion.
All   life  on   the  campus  centred
around military activity.    Students
not joining up found other ways of
being of service.
Collections were taken up, students promising to make monthly
contributions of. whatever they
were able to give.
A Victory Loan Bond campaign
was held on the campus, the sum
of 925,500 being obtained ln this
way. The Players' Club contributed a large sum, their example
being followed by other clubs.
Girls on the campua formed a
branoh of tbe Rod Croaa, and under   the   vigorous   leadership   of
Miss Isabel Maclnnes, they made

drama ot the early Twentieth Century, will speak tomorrow noon, in

The life of Keyserllnck has already proved to be a story of adventure. He was born In Petersburg, Russia, in 1905, the year of
revolution, of the massacre of
"Red Sunday" and of the formation
of the ill-fated Duma.
During the tense years preceding the great Revolution, the boy,
Robert, lived in the shadow of the
court of the Csar where he beheld
with boyish Interest, sights of immortal significance.
Then came 1917 wit hits universal uprising and reign of Revenge.
The Keyserllncks, as bourgeois,
were forced to' flee from Petersburg. The family took refuge in
The next few years found the
young man, Robert, an ardent stud-
ent of the Young China movement.
The epubllc'a drive for westernisation and the mounting wave of discontent with European rule appealed strongly to his adolescent
adventurous  spirit.
From China, Keyserllnck travelled to Vancouver, where he became
a student at U.B.C. In spite ot
great handicaps, the young man
rose Into prominence and graduated
In 1929 with honors In economics
and history.
After a short period of study,
Keyserllnck was appointed to the
position of Berlin correspondent for
the United Press and in 1931 had
the unique opportunity of interviewing Herr Hitler on the question of Reparations.

Actuelly, eome claim, there Is no
need for eny Aim* Meter meeting
to discuss the project. The 940,000
or more thet is on hend was raised
for the purpose of building e cempus student centre; no further authorisation ie needed before the
money cen be put to work.
It ie felt, however, thet en investigation of the propoael, end
subsequent presentetion of the project before the Alma Meter Society would be the most efficient
method of handling the situetion.
If the money alreedy relaed
will not cover the coat of the proposed wing, end there ere those
who say it will not, there ia the
possibility that inclusion of the
C.O.T.C. headquarters in the
building will make it possible for
the atudent body to obtain e
grant from the Federal Department of National Defense. Thle
has been done in other Canadian
From one source, it has been
stated that Union Building funds
at hand total a good deal more than
$40,000. Whether this is true or
not, the fact remains, say supporters of the present proposal, that
there is sufficient money raised to
cover the cost of a building that
would assist greatly in easing overcrowding conditions on the campus.
Realising that the university itself ia suffering even more than
student activity, it must be pointed
out that there ia no queation of
spending new money.
The very fact that the Union
Building wing would to aome
amall extent leeve certain apsce
in other buildings free for classroom use, la an added argument
in favor of uaing the money st
hsnd, declsre supporters of the
Presence of one section of the
Union Building on the campus
would be an incentive to have the
remainder of the structure put up.
A completed Union Building on the
campus will be a more likely possibility if the present proposal is
accepted by the students.
Vocational Guidance
To Be Discontinued
This year the U.B.C. Alumni Association has discontinued its usual
series of vocational guidance talks,
given on the campus in other years
during the winter and spring terms.
Tommy Berto, who handled the
series f or several years, is no
longer heading the alumni committee on the talks, and the new committee chairman has made no announcement of a new series of addresses.

The government would be content
to  reet  with  the   publio  knowing
thet et least some building wss under wsy on the cempus.

A third important objection to
the conatruotion of the proposed
wing at the*preaent time ls thet
840,000 cennot build enything worth
It would be far more sensible to
wait until enough money haa been
relaed to build the main aeotlon,
with the revenue-producing dance
hall, than to go ahead now with
a few offices and club rooms.
"The supposedly humorous publications emanating from varioua
college and university campuses
seem to deal exclusively with the
subject of sex. This ls deplorable.
It indicates an attitude of mind
which doesn't know what is really
funny. Many situations ln life are
ludicrous, but they are not necessarily nasty.
"That the American unlveralty
undergraduate ls merely evil-minded is something I refuse to believe.
Bad taste and irreverence are
neither ot them humorous," aaid
Dean Berg.
"Perhaps our age la peculiarly
subject to demoralising influences.
With the atrip tease, the auggeative
movie and the salacious novel on
every hand, there is a special challenge to the college man or woman
to lead the way to a better and
higher sense of humor and good
taste."—Vermont Cynic.

To Win Over Rowers 11-3
Sprinster Sparkplug in Flashy Game; Carey and
Bird Aid Fast-breaking Fifteen in Drive for
Second Place
As each rolling, smashing victory
over opposing rugby teama is flourishingly recorded on the Varaity
score sheet, there comes a certain
Indomitable, unconquerable feeling
that Coach Cobble's high-flying
Thunderbirds won't stop their triumphant march towards another
Miller Cup championship.

Once again, 'twas speedy, tricky
Howie McPhee who sparked the
smooth, powerful Students in one
ot the best exhibitions of the English oval-ball game this season.
Swivel-hipping, slashing, and sprinting his way through a mob of Red
and White warriora, our 'Owle
loomed across the pay-line for
two major scores. Both McPhee
scores came after the track star
had ripped off 40 yards in a dynamic manner.
True-blue Johnny Bird, aee fullback, countered the third Collegiate try, which Captain Dave
Carey, who played a phanomonal
game, oonvertod for tho eleven
Point Orey points. Sorum msn

In the opening minutes of the
tilt, Dobbie's ace three line swept
dowhfleld in a sustained drive, with
Johnny Bird grabbing the final pass
to crash across the Rower's line. A
blue blur of speed, otherwise known
as Howie McPhee, swished by
feeble would-be tacklers, stopping
only at the pay line. Carey converted  to make it 8-0 at the halt.
Although Hoy Cameron's boys
tightened up in the second canto,
flashy McPhee managed to counteract the Wallace score, leaving the
final  count  11-3  for  Collegians.
Varsity  Seconds
Win   22-0
Varsity's strong Seconds in the
Rugby League turned ln another
snappy win on Saturday, whitewashing the All-Blacks to the tune
of 20-0.
Wallace    and    Maekle    pushed
over for  tries  and   Leokle-Ewlng
oonvertod to give the atudenta an
8-0 lead at half time.    Carrothers
at sorum starred throughout and
ploked   up   a   try   In   the   second
half,   aftor   whioh   the   forwards
ran wild.
Madeley, Taylor and   Billings  all
scored to make it a field clay for the
hard    working    forward    men    who
showed a world of power and speed.

Science '40 put over a smart win
last Friday when they took the Science '38 into camp by a 20-6 margin.
Jack Ross sparked the winners to
victory by plopping in 10 well earned markers, and showed once more
that he ls capable of playing ln better company.
' Wonder Team *
In Defense ot
McKechnie Cup
There'll be thunder over Brockton Point on Thursday afternoon as
Varsity English Rugby team takes
the Held against a powerful Vancouver Rep fifteen ln the flrst game
of the "Round Robin" series for
possession of the McKechnie Cup.
The T h u n derbirds, defending
champions this year, have the ad-
ventage of knowing each other,
while the City team, picked from
other entrants In the local loop,
have to more or less get acquainted
from acratch.
This advantage is no less offset
by the fact that the rep. players
are the best the city has to offer,
and gives this year's edition of the
"Wonder Team" a noae ahead in
the race.
The Blue and Oold will very likely enter the aame flashy aggregation that haa played right along,
with one possible change: Ron
Stewart, from Victoria College, may
replace  N.  Harrison  ln  the scrum.
This Armistice Day feature takes
place at the Brockton Point Oval,
about 3 o'clock, following a Junior
Here's still another shot of Jack
"Spud" Davis, popular Science

show in Saturday's tilt at V.A.C.

their names in to Track

on the part of trick speedster, Aser
Rothsteln, Varsity's Junior Canadian Footballers wound up the season's schedule with a thrilling 22-
10 victory over a strong Cougar outfit Saturday afternoon.

Tha traditional rah rah apirit, which haa pulled tho Thunderbird hoopers through many a close battle In the paat, was sadly
lacking last Saturday whsn tho revamped Ryeraon quintet oopped
a 38-30 decision from the bewildered Collegians.
After holding their own In tho flrat frama the Thunderbirda wero unable to atave off the Churchmen's laat half drlva
when, led by Roger Qulnn, the "youngsters" wsnt wild, soorlng
basket after basket and leaving the dased atudenta wondering
what It waa all about.
Bob Oaborne, Frayne Gordon'a newest
acquisition, also helped the Churchmen "no
end," slowing Varalty'a offense down to a
•walk and enabling the Black and White
squad to  romp  home with the baoon.
The Thunderbird rooklea are atlll Buffering from a bad oaae of "senlorltle," but
thoy show plenty of promise and ahould be
right In the fight before long. By Straight
and "Hooker" Wright wore atandouta for the
'Birds, while Rann Matthison, usually a
point-getter, waa held aooreless.
Tho otudents started off on the right foot, opening up a 7-4
lead In the flrat few minutes, and managed to hold a alight margin
until late In the seoond quarter, when Churchmen, led by Qulnn,
forged ahead to lead 18-10 at the half-way mark.
Chiefly becauae of Osborne's brilliant defenae work Frayne
Gordon'a orew were able to hang onto their load until well Into
the third quarter, when a brief rally by the students cut the oount
to 30-24. At this point Qulnn staged another basket-getting spree,
giving tho Churchmen a 12-polnt lead. The Thunderbirds now gave
up the ghost, sending In the seoond string, and Ryeraon coasted
In to a 38-30 win.

Second Half
Still amartly from the heavy defeat inflicted on them Saturday
by Kerrisdale, the senior roundbal-
lers will stack up against St. Regis
on Remembrance Day, November
11, at McBride Park.
At the present time, the Hotel-
men   are   resting   oomfortably  at
tho   bottom  of the   league  below
Varaity, with no wlna to date, and
It stands to reason that they will
be aparlng  no  effort to aocure a
point or two.
The   campusmen   are   still   counting on the elusive Jim Robinson to
turn out and 'tis possible there'll be
one or two changes in the present
luckless lineup.
Game   time   haa   been   aet   fer
11.16 a.m.
The Juniors will oppose Pro-Recs
at the same time at Templeton
Park North. The last game between the two teams was postponed, so your toss is aa good as
mine for the winners.
The Varsity senior cagers
won their second game last
night, downing the Adanacs

University Hockeymen
Hold First Workout
Varsity's prospective ice hockeyists took the ice tor the first time
Wednesday night at the hour of 11
o'clock, no lesB. A huge number of
blade artists turned out to strut
their stuff and despite the hour
most of the lads managed to keep
awake   for   the  whole   session.
Johnny Owens split the mob into
teams and had a small Donney-
brook going before the Ice had faded away completely. Judging by
the turnout, no trouble should be
met with ln picking a team of Senior Amateur calibre.

Collapsing badly towards the
end of the second half, the Varsity
soccermen bit the dust again on
Saturday, this time to a scrappy
Kerrisdale eleven.
Presenting a weakened aide still
minus Jim Robinson out with still
another ailment, the students put
up a valiant fight to hold a atrong
Kerrie outfit for the first half.
After 16 mlnutea of the aecond
atansa, the Red and White aquad
auddenly came to life with a vengeance, surging downfield continually. Thla, combined with periodical lapass In tho student defence, enabled the Korrloa to run
In five quick goala without a reply,  leaving the final  score  6-0.
In trying to present as strong a
lineup as possible Coaeh Hitchins
brought up Leeng and Perkins from
the Juniors, and both turned ln fair
"rookie" performances.
Fiorillo in goal was not as dependable as usual, although he had
little chance with most ot the shots
that beat him. Once more tbo defence was shaky, with the exception of Croll, who played his usual
steady game. The forwarda played
some pretty football ln mid-field
and their approach work waa good,
but when they got near the goal
they could do little with the strong
Red and White defence.
The Juniors . . . after having
the best of the play throughout
their contest with C. C. F. at McBride Park, Anally lost out by the
margin of two goals scored near
the final whistle.
Wilf  Balderston
Tops   In   Golf
In a typical driving finish. Wilt
Balderston came up from behind In
the last six holes of the annual University Golf Tournament to nose
out Pete Vlckers by a one-point
At the end of the first eighteen,
Vlckers waa leading by two, and
made   it   three   at   the   thirtieth.
Then   Baldorston'a  smooth  stroking  began to, tell,  and after taking   the   noxt   four   he   held   the
hard-flghtlng   Vlckers   evenly   on
the last two.
Although    Balderston    has    been
playing consistent golf for the laat
three   years,   this   is   the   flrst  time
he has  come through  to the  finals.
His  play  has   always   been   characterized by a driving determination,
slashing  shots,   and   first-rate   putting,    which    have    Anally    brought
him to the top in Varsity golf.
