Boycott Unessential As
Peace Agent: Air-Debate
Miller and  McDougall  Score  Over  Alta.
Team In Peace Topic Debate
The Kellogg Pact and the use of
economic boycott to ensure world
peace were condemned in the radio
debate Tuesday night, when Richard
MacDougall and Frank Miller, representatives of 1he Parliamentary
Forum received an unanimous decision against Max Crosley and Paul
Campbell of the University of Alberta. The U.B.C. team took the
negative of the resolution, "That Economic Blockade is the Only Way of
Keeping International Peace," and
spoke from the CRCV studios in Vancouver while the Alberta team spoke
from CRCE in Edmonton.
The contention made by the Alberta team was that the addition of
a single clause to the pact could establish thc method of boycott successfully, and abolish all the inefficiency of peace and disarmament
conferences. On the other hand the
difficulties of tpplying a boycott
since one nation could ruin the efficacy of an agreement were pointed
out by the U.B.C. team. Again the
aggressor nation, with the implements
of modern warfare could force the
attacked country to surrender before the existing supplies of goods
in the country could be used, thus
rendering the boycott invalid.
The judges consisted of three em-

IN FOREIGN STUDIES
W. T. E. Kennett, a graduate of
U.B.C. and a holder of the French
Government Scholarship for Graduate studies, was ranked 16th in a
class of 144 students, states a despatch
from the University of Paris.
Kennett graduated at the University
of British Columbia with First Class
Honours in French and tJerman in
1932. On graduation he won the
French Government Scholarship for
Graduate Studi.s for that year entitling him to follow the "Cours de
Preparation pour les professeurs de

Musicians to Sing
Mikado Excerpts
Following up ths success of the recital given last Thursday, the Musical
Society will present another noon-
hour recital on Thursday, Feb. 1.
This rectial will be presented by
several promising young artists of
Vancouver, some of them attending
the University at present. The program has not yet been definitely decided on; but it will include piano
selections by Grenfell Allen, one of
the outstanding young pianists of the
city and a former pupU of Jan Cher-
niavsky, Vocal silos will be presented by some of the principals in the
Musical Society'j Spring production,
"The Mikado."
NOTICE TO GRADS.
The Totem office are now in
possession of forms for individual write-ups. These forms
can be obtained in the Publications Office and all grads are
asked to fill them out and return them by Thursday, Feb.
1st, If these forms are not in
by that time the individuals
concerned will have no write-
up in tlie Totem.
NO DECISION
ON DEMOTING
MAJOR SPORT
No decision was reached with regard to the proposed demotion of
some major sport, et a Men's Athletic
Association held for that purpose
Wednesday noon.
The question was asked whether
the University could afford to support major sport. Max Stewart said
that the creation of a new major
sport would not mean an increase in
the grant for Athlteics.
Limitation Moved
It was then moved by Dick Far-
ington, Captain of the Canadian
Rugby Team, that the number of
major sports on the campus be limited to four. This motion was hotly
contested by ths supporters of the
track team. It wa. stated that in the
event of any one of the sports being
demoted, track would be sure to be
the one to suffer. Thc plea was made
that track should be given the opportunity to show what it' really
could do. A counter plea was made
that track should not be favoured
because of what it might do, but that
precedence should be given to a
sport like soccer which had proven
itself in a long hard fight for recognition.
No Added Financial Strain
At this point Dr. Davidson asked
to be allowed to say a few words.
He said that the elevation of another sport to the major standing
would not put _ny greater strain on
the finances of the University, but
that it would mean the distribution
of the existing awards over a larger
field of sport, thus making the big
block awards harder to earn. He
said that in his opinion any sport
that could hold up it end successfully in the face of competition should
be ranked as a major sport: and that
when any sport failed to hold up its
end, it should be dropped from the
major ranking.
The Farrington motion was withdrawn by request, and the meeting
was adjourned leaving the question
over until a future date.
Dramatic Irony
Institute Subject
"Dramatic Irony as illustrated in
Shakespeare's 'Othello'—will be the
subject of an address to be given by

The Players' Club has a new toy.
It has recently appeared in the Green
Room, a mysterious erection of wood
which some people thought was a
coffin and others a packing case.
But a more sinister interpretation
was put upon the structure, when
some of the most respected members
were found sitting cross legged before
it like worshippers of an idol, cutting out paper dolls and placing them
solemnly in the maw of the monster!
Had the strain of producing "Caesar
and Cleopatra" as a spring play already proved too much for xhen.?
Had the spell of ancient Egypt taken
away their wits? Did they imagine
themselves devotees of Ra, paying
him homage of human blood?
Fortunately none of these conjectures were true, The wooden monstrosity was nothing but a model
stage and its seeming worshippers
were engaged in the sane and practical business of working out settings
for the Spring play.
A model stage is a device for trying out scenery and lighting in miniature instead of making costly experiments with full-sized material, lt
is   especially   necessary   for  produc-
Alumnae Sponsor
Vocational Talks
Following the plan which has proven successful in other Universities
the alumnae has undertaken to sponsor a series of vocational guidance
lectures.
The main objectives will be to assist students who have not yet what
they wish to follow to make an intelligent decision. Also to Inform
students of conditions in various occupations, the obstacles that will be
met and the best methods of preparation .
The vocational chairmanship committee under the guidance of Mr.
Tommy Berto, has procured the consent of several prominent men of
Vancouver to come to the University
and speak befor. the students.
The first lecture of the series will
be given next Wednesday noon by
Mr. Sherwood Lett, who will deal
with the legal profession. Mr. Lett
is probably the most outstanding
U.B.C. alum, having been first president of the A.M.S. (191!*) and Rhodes
scholar shortly after the war. He
studied in Vienna after completing
his course at Oxford, Since that time
he has risen to thc first rank in his
profession being now a partner of
the firm of C. P. Davis and Co. He
has been an untiring worker for the
University and is at present secretary of Convocation and a member
of the senate.
It is hoped that there will be a
large attendance at this inaugural
lecture for it will undoubtably be
of value to all those considering the
study of law.
The room in which the lecture will
b_  held will be announced later.
tions of the impressionistic type such
as thc Players' Club is aiming at this
year.
Tommy Lea, stage manager of the
Club, built the model to measurements taken by himself and Gordon
Hilkpr during the Christmas holidays.
It is designed to an exact scale of
one inch to a foot and represents
not only the state, but also the fly
gallery and also the lofts above.
This will make it possible to duplicate completely an actual show on
the stage. WorKing models in miniature of all the stage equipment will
be installed as th.y are required, and
the result in the end is intended to
be a complete puppet theatre.
Th. curved cyclorameter will be
reproduced. The draw curtains will
draw. The border lights will move
up end down on pulleys just as they
do in the real theatre, have their color changed by tiny gelatins and be
dimmed by little rheostats.
The ability to try out the lighting
in miniature will save a great deal
of money to the University since
every time the lights are turned on
the actual stage thousands of watts
are used and the Univerities electricity goes up7 very considerably.
It is also obvious how much cheaper it is to make mistakes with cardboard scenery than with lumber and
canvass. The practice material also
submits much more plasticly to experiment.
For the present only the equipment
necessary for "Caesar and Cleopatra"
will be put into the model stage but
in time it will be fitted up completely and be a valuable and permanent
asset to the club.
Famous Ibsen Drama

Masterly Staging of "A Doll's House" By

The memory of English I. course was vividly recalled last

Ship Wrecked Mariners
Land On Spanish Banks
"Folks don't realize what a can of
salmon may cost," said Fred Nelson,
drying his soaked clothing over a
fire on the West Point Grey beach
Tuesday afternoon close to the
grounded hull of his boat. "Sure, we
got clear all right ... but it was
only by a miracle!"
Caught off the Sandheads when the
engine of their 30-foot gasboat failed
them early Monday morning, Fred
Nelson and Ashley Bolton, fishermen,
found themselves drifting helplessly
before a rising gale. They were carried ten miles to sea during the night
and hoped to make the sheltered Nanaimo horbour, but a direct change of
wind carried them swiftly towards
the "small crafts' graveyard" of West
Point Grey. Passing vessels failed to
catch their distress-signals, and at an
early hour Tuesday afternoon the little craft was riding at anchor not
more than a hundred yards from the
edge of the suif, pounded by tremendous seas and filling rapidly. Th.
combined strain of wind and tide
was too much for the anchor line,
and the boat was hurled broadside
into the surf, crashing to the end of
her wild voyage against a waterlogged snag that held her upright at
the moment of striking. The men
were able to scramble to safety over
the bow.
Although the hull and superstructure were considerably damaged, the
fishermen believed that they would
be able to refloat their vessel at high
tide.
Captains of all university teams
are to be responsible for conduct of
the members of 'he teams while they
are travelling under the name of
the university.
This was proposed by Students'
Council on Tuesday night, in an effort to meet an objection by Faculty
Committee against the dropping of
the former system of sending a faculty or council representative with
every travelling team.
Captain Not Policeman
Mark Collins, president of the Alma Mater Society, said that Dr.
Shrum, in talking to him about the
matter, had made no alternative suggestion, but had argued that the presence of a responsible person had a
moral effect on the team. "However,
neither faculty nor ourselves," said
Collins, "like to net as policemen."
The suggestion that captains be
made responsible came from Jack
Shaneman, and was strongly supported by Milt Owen, who pointed out
that the captain would have power to
prevent a man playing if he did not
behave.
Collins thought the plan would satisfy Faculty Committee, and it was
approved by all except Gordon Stead,
to whom il seemd an imposition on
the captain that was not likely to
have much effect.
The president reported that the finance committee appointed to revise
budgets had succeeded in saving
some 11,100. Because the money due
from A.M.S. fees is not yet definitely
known, he held over a final statement until the next meeting.
New Club Recognized
The Cosmopoytan Club, a new
campus organization, applied for recognition by the A.M.S. This renewed
discussion of tho proposal to limit
the number of clubs. Oordon Stead
said he would apnolnt a committee to
go into it at the next meeting of the
Literary and Scientific Executive.
Meanwhile he considered that it
might be well to give new organizations provisional recognition for the
first year and then to reconsider their
standing. This was because any executive strong enough to start a club
was usually strong enough to carry
it through the first year, but after
that weaknesses might become apparent.

Shun Sin, Seek Salvation
Says Succint Shepherd
Brilliant Lead
The brilliant performance of Joan
Miller as Nora deserves first praise.
Tho evolution from the pose of a petulant, feathery plaything in Act One
to the determined, uncompromising
feminist is finely indicated. If the
first glimpses of Nora strike one as
rising above her later self, attribute
lt to a preliminary concentration of
Ibsen on Characterization (to the gratification of English professors),
which is of course a fault in the light
of modern naturalistic technique. Indeed, the play as a whole has a certain synthetic quality.
The Cold Nora
The modern audience may find another shortcoming in Ibsen. In his
effort to drive home his once revolutionary idea, the later Nora—the
door-slam Nora—is pictured as rather
cold and unfeeling. ' (Sti-indberg
called her an "epicene squaw.") How
did this Nora make all her secret
sacrifices for Helmer? She seems
equally unmoved by the ill-fated
Doctor Rank, whose desperate confession of love, despite its contemptuous dismissal in my old English
class, always engages my sympathy.
Bill Buckingham, graduate of the
Players' Club, was an appropriately
placid Torvold Helmer, skillfully displaying a surface appreciation only
of Nora. The voices of this actor in
moments of eloquence, and of Joan
Miller in moments of anguish, are
frankly beautiful.
Other parts were on the whole well
handled. Marjory Ellis as Christina,
was a mild mannered foil for Nora.
The Krogstad of Fred Bradsnaw
seemed somewhat inadequately exploited.
The ploy was presented at a lively
pace, thanks largely to the fine delivery of the principals, and the excellent direction of Carleton Clay.

the Rev. Bingham attempted a witty
opening by suggesting that perhaps
we didn't find Ufe worth living during examination time. His pains were
amply rewarded by a few suppressed
smiles.
"Crush pride, curb passion, and dig
for truth." "Conquer sin and the problem of making life worth living is
solved." "If there is anything that
takes the joy out of living it is sin,"
"Sin is the thing that robs life of all

The government went down to defeat before the opposition Tuesday

The question before the House was
"Resolved that our present social
system gives age an unfair advantage
over youth.' ' This was defended by
Jack Conway and Ernest Brown, the
opposition being upheld by Jack
Bourne and Party. Sharp discussion
followed with Brown being compelled
to rise four times because of the lack
of government members.
The next meeting, to be held a
week from this coming Tuesday, will

THIS RUSHING RACKET
With the conclusion of another season of
freshmen rushing, the feeling is becoming
more and more general that some definite effort should be made to restrict over-strenuous
rushing in the future.
The large expenditure of time and money
by fraternities is often quite wasted, while the
studies and other activities o! all concerned
must necessarily suffer. Some freshmen are
in a state of practical exhaustion from a round
of strenuous social activities which have
lasted for over a month. Since athletic activities are Restricted, why not cut down on the
equally strenuous social round ?
The obvious solution for this much-
emphasized problem seems to be in a limitation of fraternity functions under direction of
the Inter-fraternity Council. Let each fraternal organization be allowed only a certain
number of rushing functions with set dates,
and let the freshmen signify those functions
which they wish to attend, allowing a maximum number for each freshman,
RACE AND RANCOUR
Japanese students on the campus are expressing with some justification, their resentment of the attitude adopted towards Orientals by the citizens of this province.
The illiberal treatment accorded them by
British Columbians is the result of a mass prejudice and ignorance. It is the duty of thinking people to endeavor to inculcate some measure of tolerance and fair-thinking into the
relations between the white and Oriental citizens of the province.
The* fact must be recognized that the
Orientals, many of whom are native-born, are
citizens with equal claims. to rights as the
whites. Yet only when it comes to the payment of taxes are they treated as citizens.
They are excluded from the use of the franchise and from engaging in many of the professions. Fair play seems to have been forgotten in an excess of racial zeal.
There is no doubt that some of this prejudice extends even to the campus, but it
is surely not as bad as some of our correspondents suggest. Perhaps a complex among the
Orientals themselves leads to an impression
that they are being ostracized by the whites.
The bad manners exhibited by the occasional
student should not be accepted as the attitude
on the whole campus. There are very few
who would refuse the hand of friendship because of racial difference.
Nevertheless our Japanese friends must
not expect too much. There must be an educational campaign before full legal and political rights are accorded the Orientals,, There
must be a revolution in sentiment before all
social prejudices are erased.
Too much must not be expected. There
are ultimate barriers which unfortunately
can never disappear. Complete racial intermingling must be recognized as dangerous by
white _ind Oriental alike.

to warn you that we have nothing to say, so
that you won't waste your valuable time reading us unless you want a lot of nothings.
HOUSEHOLD HINTS
Here are some hints about obtaining
hams. The butcher or ham salesman should
be approached warily. The idea is to stall
while observing the hams, and mentally reconstruct the pig.  Always choose the left ham.
It sounds silly but it's a verified fact that
the left ham of the pig is more tender than
the right. Here's why. Pigs, unlike us clever
humans who are ambidextrous in such a situation, can only scratch with the right leg. And
if you've ever lived around pigs, you'll know
they scatch plenty. The right ham gets sinewy, and there you are.
This applies only to the. meat variety of
hams, and we don't mind telling you that we
swiped it from Mr. Robert Ripley. We don't
know how to tell you to deal with the more
frequently encountered variety of hams. Always carry some mustard, however.
ATMOSPHERE
Wednesday was a horrible day.   The wea

in this journal, so we substitute—lousy. It
was difficult to engage two people in conver
sation at the same time, because the chances
were, they weren't speaking. Not mad, but
just one of those things. All the window-
openers, of whom there is a vast surplus, were
opening windows at a breath-taking rate. And
coffee ih the caf. was five cents! (We swiped
the style from the New York Graphic.)
And to crown everything the blackboards
(which are green, by the way) of every class
room loudly proclaimed the unspoken question in everybody's mind.

This is perhaps the climax of our useless

with which either Arthur Walrus and I are
seldom associated. And so it all comes out
We are intellectual now and then.
The positions of Elizabeth, Queen of England, and Mary, Queen of Scots, were almost
reversed when they were children. Henry
VIII. wished Mary to marry his son, Edward,
when she was a small child. To make' everything fair and square, he offered in exchange
to marry his daughter, Elizabeth, to Hamilton,
son of the Earl of Arran. He happened to be
next in line after Mary for the Scottish
throne.
It was fortunate it didn't come off. If it
had, what would sentimental historians and
chivalrous biographers do when the lovely
Mary was not the abused victim of circumstances. Imagine Elizabeth and John Knox
running the kingdom of Scotland between
them. There wouldn't be enough good old

Editor Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Mr. Palliti's letter In Friday's Ubyssey cannot pass without comment.
I, one of the so-called "second generation," had lost all hope of encountering a student who understands
and sympathizes with the Canadian-
born Japanese. For truly, literally
speaking, we are without a country
—spiritually and morally severed
from Japan, and legally and socially
ostracized from Canada. Yet we feel
as any normal Canadian youth would
we think, as any normal Canadian
youth might, and we live as any normal Canadian youth does. But we
are not one of them. We are made
to feel that we ore encroaching on
unrightful ground. We are made to
feel that western viewpoints, western
ideals, western standards of living
are for westerners only. Professor
Zimmern's lecture last fall, and the
Ubyssey editorial following his speech
gave us no little hope for some alleviation of these unbearable feelings
thrust upon us. Therefore, although
some of Mr. Palliti's statements need
clarifying, nevertheless we appreciate his action in bringing again to
the minds of the Ubyssey readers the
vital question concerning us—future
citizens of Canada (?).
I personally thank Mr. Palliti, and,
may I add, envy the Japanese student who claims his friendship.
Nobuo Sekiguchl
Tutt! Tutt! Sir Drummond
(Continued from Last Week)
The basic Douglas theory, from
which Prof. Drummond derived such
merriment, is simply this:
It is fundamental in Industry that
all costs of production must be embodies in prices; therefore the rate of
flow of purchasing power must be
equal to the rate of flow of prices.
Major Douglas proves mathematically that because . substantial part of
industrial costs — payments for raw
materials, rent, bank interest, taxation, etc.—are delayed in distribution
at least until after the product is
sold, there Is a time lag in this money
reaching the public in the form of
wage3, etc., consequently, the rate at
which purchasing power frolws out
of industry cannot possibly equal the
rate of flow of prices.
Another Way of putting it is: Industry generates prices more rapidly
than lt generates purchasing power,
hence, ln the same unit of time, the
public will never have collective purchasing power equal to the aggregate
of prices of all goods and services
offered for their use.
Major Douglas further contends
that owing to the legal Monopoly of
Credit existing in Canada and many
other countries, nil new money emanates from the banks In the form
of debt; hence 'he supply of money
is not gauged by needs of the public
interest, but in accordance with the
exigencies of profitable bank policy.
To correct this he advocates national
control of currency and credit.
His final contention is that if science is morally right in displacing
human labor, and increasing mechanization of industry is a sign of national progress, then the individuals
so displaced, being a resultant of national progress, should not be financially penalized. He suggests a scientific and mathematical way of dealing with this problem.
Whether Douglas Social Credit is
"The Way Out" or whether it is not,
its contentions and proposals were
deemed worthy of study by the famous MacMillan Economic Commission in England. At the invitation of
Lord MacMillan, and not at his own
request, Major Douglas spent a whole
day with those erudite researchers,
expounding his views and answering
questions. Some of his ideas were
concurred in, some were not. But
none were deemed nonsensical as
Prof. Drummond would have you believe; nor was Major Douglas discounted as "one without a knowledge of economics."
Not as a bell-ever in Social Credit,
but as a firm believer in the true
function of a University as a seat of
universal learning, I resent this attempt on the part of Prof. Drummond ,to prevent, by ridicule, the
study of what undoubtedly is one of
the most outstanding contributions to
economic thought In recent year. It'
is the right of U.B.C. students to1
know all about Social Credit and decide for themselves if it is worth
acceptance; and if they cannot get
the matter fro.-n their professors,
then they should form a study group
of their own, ask Mr. Ridington to ;
get some authentic books, or in the
alternative,  get them elsewhere.
If the economics students so desired I would like nothing better
than to come personally to address
them on Douglas Social Credit, and,
preferably in th. presence of Prof,
Drummond, to answer all the questions that may .rise in connection
therewith.
Regarding the concluding remark
attributed to Prof. Drummond, as
founder of the Social Credit Group

any person unacquainted with Social
Cvedit has ever been invited to lee-

Wood Preservation
Reviewed by Rindal
Before Forest Club
An address on Lumber Preservation by Mr. Rindal of the B. C. Creo-
soting Co. featured the Tuesday noon
meeting of the Forest Club.
Opening his address with a brief
outline of the history of wood preservation from the Roman era, Mr.
Rindal went on to describe the first
wood preserving plant in the United
States, which was opened in 1848. By
1929, said the speaker, there were 200
plants in operation, with an annual
output of 400,000 million board feet
of treated timber per year. Several
preservative substances are used, but
in America 90 percent of the treated
timber is preserved with creosote.
Durability
The speaker gave several examples
of the durability of treated timbers.
While untreated railroad ties have an
average life of about 8 years, -those
treated will last 25 years if protected
from mechanical injury. An ordinary trestle bridge will last only 14
years or so, but a trestle constructed
of creosoted wood will be still in
use at the end of 35 years.
In describing the actual process of
creosoting, Mr. Rindal mentioned several difficulties that are encountered.
Seasoning comes before treating.
Some species of wood absorb creosote
readily, but ln others the penetrating
is Irregular, and the operation for
insuring even penetration ia one in
which great care must be taken. Here
an incising machine is used, the timbers being run into a large cylinder
where the first step ln the process,
that of removing most of the cell
water from the wood, takes place.
This is done by boiling under a vacuum, and too rapid removal of the
water may cause the wood to rupture. When the moisture content of
the wood is sufficiently reduced, creosote is admitted under pressure.
The time required to treat timbers
varies considerably, but about 15
hours are required for a charge of
Douglas fir.

By D. G.
The executive of Arts '36 became
exasperated on Wednesday night and
set out to prove that somewhere, in
a dormant condition, there exists a
genuine class spirit. In doing this
they made history by phoning each
and every member of that celebrated
class in his or her domicile between
six and ten o'clock. They set up
camp in the Council Office, left open
for them by a kindly caretaker, who
must have at one time organized a
class party himself, and for three and
a half solid hours rang bells ln houses
extending over the entire countryside.
Most of the evening was decidedly
dull, but there were happy incidents
which served to cheer and encourage.
A surprisingly large number of students were found to be home, contrary to popular opinion. In most
homes the routine was the same.
Little brother answered the phone
and obligingly turned down the radio when requested to do so. Par*
ents kindly consented to give messages which in all probability were
forgotten. No method seems to be
in existence whereby one may tell
by which of his various names a student is known. Williams were fairly simple but confusion arose over
Jacks and Johns, Eds and Isadoras,
and by some freak of fortune a certain Paddy was registered under the
name of Jean.
Class parties do not seem to be of
general knowledge. Some difficulty
was encountered in persuading'certain parties that they actually attended the University, but when so convinced they seemed willing to listen
to any information which might be
offered. Some of them were not
aware that they were part of the
class; others insisted that they had
already paid their fees to the bursar
last Monday, still others confessed
their ignorance of such a thing as a
class party and questioned the right
of the executive to compel their attendance. The information that Arts
'36 was speaking seemed inadequate,
as several hopefuls inquired "Art
who?"
One Edwin, or Ed or Ted, inquired
brightly after the health of the young
lady calling and was somewhat crestfallen to find she was an official
being, even thought she replied that
she found herself very well thank
you and that class fees were always
welcome.
Parents for tha most part were
cheery and helpful, with the exception of one case, which on the first
call informed the inquirer that "Leslie is out" and on the second call
that "Leslie is eating!" One man
listened to a ten minute sales talk on
the wisdom of paying his fees and
then blandly informed the caller that
"It must be my son you want!" Mr.
Blank, very informative, was described by the treasurer as "an old
boy about 80."
"Is that the Blank's house?"
"Well is that John? Jack maybe?
O well, Jack or John."
"O Jean! Yes, that'd be who we
want, Jean."
"O, I see, he's out! Well, this is
his class executive speaking."
One young lady replied langurous-
ly to an impassioned address on class
spirit, "Ay don't tank ay go!"
One mother or aunt when asked if
Ronald were there insisted that central had called tbe wrong number,
that there was nobody there called
Ronald. When she was told she must
be mistaken she replied in disgust
that she couldn't understand a word
and called Ronald to the phone to
explain.
"Must be deaf or something," volunteered the vice-president.
"Deaf, I guess," replied the secretary.
Apart from an increasing hoarseness towards the latter part of the
evening, Central Is to be highly commended for her good work,

A bright and enterprising young

circulating a petition for the elimination of seventeenth century French

the second year course. This deserves ,„,„  ,.   ,    r"7  "7 ""•"""" *"""

verslty. They arc now studying, at
the end of that five years, the construction of simple sentences and
paragraphs, and struggling to translate and understand a simple and
well written seventeenth century
play, less archaic than Shakespeare.
The average scholar cannot speak,
understand or write fifty consecutive words correctly, even of the elementary standard that is required of
them.    To  drive  the slightest point
the support of all students who do
not plan to continue languages past
the compulsory limits.
There are excellent grounds for the
continuance of compulsory languages
in the curriculum. There' are also
excellent grounds for the continuance of cultural languages with a
minumum of practical value.
But when the two are combined,
and students are compelled to study
a language with no practical value,
the results are bound to be most
depressing. When the majority of
the classes in any given tongue have
no interest, and can see no benefit, in
their work, that work is bound to
suffer.
For the manifest proof of this statement, one need only attend one session of a French Two class. I speak
of Wench, because I am familiar
with it. The same conditions doubt-

where the same causes are active.
Let me introduce you to an "average" class. These bright lads and

his feet on the table)—"Does lt not

of the Women's Undergraduate Society to turn over to Dean Bollert's
bursary fund the proceeds, 163, of
their tea dance in the fall. They
.held that the W.U.S., like all other
university organizations, must turn
its funds in to the A.M.S. The only
exception was for one or two functions recognized as being for the
Women's Union Eulldjng Fund and
advertised as such. The tea dance
was not so advertised.
Elearnore Walker, president W.U.S.,
protested in vain. She threatened to
begin an investigation of the whole
standing of the W.U.S. as a campus
body, declaring that it did not completely correspond to the Men's Undergraduate Society, , as council
claimed.
Biff McLeod, president of the basketball club, mads a reply to council's reprimand of a fortnight ago
concerning the poor attendance at
basketball games. Council agreed
with him that there was little use
beginning an advertising campaign
for the remainder of the regular
league games, since they were practically over. Hov/ever, they thought
the play-offs might be made to bring
in some money.
Fuji Tanaka, a Japanese studtnt,
asked permission to speak under the
name of the university in favour of1
franscise for Japanese in British Columbia. Council were not unsympathetic to his proposal, but thought
it better for him to seek the auspices
of the Japanese Students' Club of
the university.
Soccer To Go Before A.M.S.
Max Stewart, president of the Men's
Athletic Association, asked if the soccer :lub'. application for reinstatement as a major sport would have
to go before the whole Alma Mater
Society or only before the council.
Only before the council, It was decided.
Stewart was asked to warn the
next meeting of the Men's Athletic
Association, who will meet to consider the possible demotion of one of
the present major sports, that they
are not to expect any increase in the
number of Big Block sweaters given
as athletic awards.
Mark Collins has been insistent on
this point. He points out that in the
first place the Alma Mater Society
cannot afford it, and that in tha second place it is undesirable to cheapen
the awards.
Report on N.F.C.U.S.
Collins read a full report of the
recent conference of the National
Federation of Canadian University
Students at London, Ontario, which
he attended as U.B.C.'s representative.
Among the points brought out was
that the exchange scholarships of the
federation are open to graduates if
they wish to apply. Special consideration will be tflven them, but normally undergraduates of the junior
.year are favoured.
Council agreed to several changes
recommended by Faculty Council in
the almost-forgotten new constitution
of the A.M.S. Among these is a provision which will permit university
functions to last till 1 a.m. instead of
mid-night. '<
structor is forced to descend to methods that can only be described as a
combination of kindergarten and
vaudeville.   ,
Listen to ten students attempting
to recite ten lines of Mollere which
they have been asked to memorize.
Two may manage to keep their heads
above water by great effort, and
finally wade bark to their seats
through a surf ot misplaced prepolsi-
tions, twisted vowel sounds and tortured constructions. Two more have
given up in despair, and made no at-
tept to learn it. The other six stumble over two or three lines, pause,
blush behind the ears, twiddle their
thumbs, and cast their eyes heavenwards in agonized search for inspiration that has finally to be copiously
supplied by the lecturer.
Who Is to blame ior this state ef
affairs? Not the atudente-they are
bright enough and industrious enough
in other subjects. Not the instructors — they have turned out many
creditable graduates from the ranks
of those who voluntarily take advanced work.
The responsibility for this farce
rests with those in authority who fail
to recognize that stuAnts will work
hard end effectively at subjects that
interest them, and alao at subjects
that do not interest them, If they
recognize them a3 valuable or necessary, but that they will NOT work
either effectively or intelligently at
a subject which does not fall Into
either of these classifications.
•   •   •
It is the fashion among the more
consciously intellectual circles to
burst into derisive jeers at the mere
mention of the performances of the
V.C.U. and similar organizations that
apparently draw theu- inspiration
from the Hinterland of the Bible Belt
of Darkest Africa. I confess that
during the one session that I attended, the speaker's continual refrain
of "Dearly Beloved!" and his peculiar
views on the prophetic omniclency of
the Sacred Writ of the Christian Persuasion afflicted me with acute mental nausea.
This, however, is a strictly personal
view, and in a country where I am
permitted to hold my own opinions
without active persecution, I consider
it poor manners publicly to direct
my somewhat turbulent stream of
ridicule upon these people, no matter hew illogical I consider them. I
do not think others should, either.
They at least appear to be sincere.
They attempt to illuminate what they
consider to be a wilderness of darkness with the light they believe they
possess, and yet they somehow manage to refrain from being actively
obstereperous. Above all, they possess convictions, and act upon them.
Their discernment may be blighted,
but I consider that these qualities
exalt their mental integrity, which
is quite a different thing.
If some of our shining lights could
find some method of achieving this
spiritual attitude without the accompanying ossification of the intelligence
it might make a very different place
of our University.

division ruggers will swing into action next Saturday, February 3 against the Vancouver Reps. This coming
Saturday the boys will have a no less
important match when they meet the
strong Rowing Club team in the first
round of the Tisdall Cup.
Good Year
This year has been a good one
for the English Rugby team. In the
league games Varsity is right on the
heels of the powerful North Vancouver All Blacks although they have
yet to register a win over this aggregation. All that is required to finish a yet more successful season is.
the gaining of the McKechnie Cup.
Hopes Are High
It was away back in 1927 that Varsity last won this historic trophy.
Since that date the team as yet been
unsuccessful in its attempts to regain the cup. However, this year with
a first rate team Varsity's hopes for
carrying off this championship are
high. The coach and the members are
both determined to bring back the
McKechnie Cup to its proper home in
the Library., The team started the
series off well when they drew with
the strong Victoria squad in their
first encounter 0-0. A week Saturday
they hope to do still better and ring
up their first victory by defeating the
Reps. This win would place Varsity in
the lead of the McKechnie Cup series.
Saturday Game
The game next Saturday between
Varsity and the Rowing Club should
also prove to be a close match. The
Rowing Club have a strong team and
should give Varsity a hard battle to
8ecide which team will be knocked
out of the Tisdall Cup series. This
game will be held at Brockton Point
Oval and will commence at 2 o'clock.

Intermediate 4A'
There is jubilation in the Intermediate A Basketball camp; the V.
and D. Boys won their first game on
Wednesday night. The team turned
out at full strength to tbe King Edward gymnasium only to find that
the Normal squad, their opponents,
had not turned up—and Varsity had
garnered their first victory by default. So tha the cash customers
would not be disappointed the boys
made up two teams and staged a
demonstration match.
Outdoors Club
It is requested that as many V.O.C.
members as possible go up the mountain this week end as coaching for
the ski team will start. Mr. Nels Nelson, the former world champion ski
jumper, will be there to take thc
class at nine a.m. on Sunday, Jan.
2.8 It would be best for all to come
up on Saturday afternoon so as to
be on time.
With play-offs just around tho corner, Varsity Senior A Basketballer.
are on their toes at every practice,
learning new plays and polishing up
on the old ones. They have four more
league encounters, and ii' they win
them all they land on top of the
league, with a bye into the playoff finals.
Standing
Out of fourteen games this season
they have won eleven and lost three.
Two of these losses have been to Adanacs, always Varsity's chief rivals.
One of the Students' remaining games
is with the mustard shirted Westminster crew. If they win this game
they will have an excellent chance to
top the league. Varsity is leading now
with twenty-two points, Adanacs also
have twenty-two, but |hey have played one more game than the students
and have lost four of these tussles.
Games This Week
Tonight and tomorrow night they
play the B & W and the McKenzie
Fraser respectively. Friday's game
will take place at New Westminster
while Saturday's game will be at the
Varsity gymn. The lubricating crew
are very anxious to stay in third place
and a win over Varsity would just
about cinch a play-off berth for them.
McKenzie Fraser are just one game
Arts '37
Basketball
The Freshmen chalked up another
win yesterday when they took a fast
'37 squad in an inter-class basketball
game. At half time the score was 8-4
for '36. About midway through the
second half '36 were still ahead, but
'37 ran in several quick baskets and
the score ended 20-14.

I behind the Oilers so that every game
from now on will have direct bear-
| ing on the league standing.
' Good Contests
This week's games should be interesting games, although the students
expect that they won't have much
trouble getting past the Montgomery
crew. U.B.C. have won three out of
four games against the Oilers, doubling the score on them the last time,
42-21.
Adanacs Next
The Blue and Gold squad meet
Adanacs in one of the two remaining
tilts. The Adanac game is a most crucial encounter. The Westminster squad
have beaten Varsity twice this season
and are gunning for another win on
the 31st of this month, when the two
league-leaders clash in the New Westminster Arena. When Varsity played
Adanacs last they swamped them by
a 49-15 score, and they are confident
that they can repeat on Wednesday.
Last Game
The last game in this year's regular schedule is with Doug. Fraser's
McKenzie and Fraser squad. The
Students have taken every game
against this squad so far, and they
do not anticipate much trouble when
they come together on February 3 at
the Point Grey gym. Games with
this team are rough and tumble affairs as a rule, but the Westminster
crew seldom get anything for their
rough tatties except the satisfaction
of seeing a black eye or a flat tire
occasionally.
McKee Playing
George McKee is practicing with the
Senior A crew these days and will
probably bolster up the Students' depleted ranks for the remainder of the
season. All the players are in tiptop condition and the team is heading right now for the Dominion playoffs.

Lay Off
After practically a two-weeks' layoff Varsity's Senior Soccermen will
resume league play tomorrow when
they tackle Maccabees on Cambie
Street grounds at 1:30 p.m.
Judging from Maccabees present
form the Students have a tough assignment, as in their most recent encounter with Art Monument, who
were undefeated up to that time,
Maccabees took them into camp by a
1-0 score. The Macs, however, were
runners-up in the first half of the
league schedule, and should go pretty
far under the Commission.

Hope To Win
But the Students are not execatly
leery of the Fraternity men. Although
the latter eked out a 1-0 victory over
them early in the .all, Varsity came
back in late November and flattened
them with a 4-1 count. In goals
scored, then, Varsity has the advantage. Resting on laurels, however,
never was characteristic of Varsity
teams, and Bill Creamer's charges
will all go out to win tomorrow.
Additional Power
The proverbial ill wind, besides, has
brought additional strength to Varsity. During the forced lay-off three
prominent "crocks" have had a perfect chance to recover—Millar McGill from his tricky knee, Dave Todd
from his tender ankle, and Ernie
Costain from his 'flu—and will the
Blue and Gold tomorrow.
With these stalwarts in line harness
again, Varsity will present its strongest side which will be selected from
tho following: Costain, Greenwood,
Kozoolin, Martin, MacDougall, McGill, Smith, Stewart, Sutherland,
Thurber, Todd,  Waugh,  Wolfe.

Photos of both soccer squads will
be taken at 5 p.m. today at the Artona Studio on Granville Street. There
