Chips Fly As Thespians
Erect Set For 'Candida'
4) Grovelling in backstage dust, chips and ends of wood and
sawdust, the stage crew is working hammer and nail to
complete an all-wood set. Departing from the usual tradition
of a canvas stage set, this year the Players' Club is constructing one entirely of wood for their production of George Bernard Shaw's "Candida".
The reason for the solid scenery
is two-fold—first because it will
look move authentic and second,
because doors can be more realistically slammed.

To Letters
Of Council
% In an effort to comply
with the student demand
that it. take steps, to regain
control of the administration
of the stadium, gymnasium
and Brock Hall, the Student
Council has passed two resolutions, but as yet has received no reply to the letters
which it has sent.
A request was sent to the Board
of Governors asking that "all
donations __td charges received for
the use of these buildings (stadium, gymnasium and Brock HaU)
be put In a trust account to be
administered by  the  A.M.S."
A letter waa also sent to th*
Committee for the administration
of the stadium and gymnasium,
asking that tha A.M.S. be permitted to use the stadium whenever it wishes to do so, and that
on auch occasions th* C.O.T.C. be
asked to find another parade
At the laat monthly mooting of
the Board of Governor*, thla
letter wa* tabled, pending the return ef President L. S. Kllnck. It
cannot therefore be dealt with
until the next meeUng at the end
of March. No reply ha* yet been
received from th* Stadium-Gymnasium Committee.
However, the stadium wa* made

^ Although fifty thousand
dollars may seem like a
great deal of money to the
average person, Dr. Joseph
M. Keller, lecturer in the
Physics Department, is not
over-excited by the sum.
Last Friday Dr. Keller learnt
that he was the heir to fifty thousand dollars, bequeathed to him by
. a grand-uncle. James Ulmann,
who died in New York a year ago.
More embarassed than pleased
by this good luck, Dr. Keller continues his dally routine lectures
and rounds of the laboratories in
the Science Building. "It makes no

Love Not Result Of Fear
Claim U.B.C. Debaters
^ "Every love affair, every marriage, is motivated not by
the fear of punishment, but by the hope of reward—some
kind of reward." Thus Les Bewley defended U.B.C.'s case
in a debate with the Vancouver Speakers' Club Tuesday
The resoluUon. the third debated
by U.B.C. this year, was Resolved:
'That human behaviour is Influenced to a greater degree by the
hope of reward than by the fear
of   punishment."
Debating partner, scienceman
Bill Backman, sizing up tho s'tua-
tlon,   methodically   seated   himself,
pulled out his slide-rule for psychological calculations, and speedily arrived at the square root of
the intelligence of his opponents.
However, the three judges decided that the opposing team had
a slight edge and awarded the
Speakers' Club with a split decision.

International Conference
We of the University of British Columbia welcome today the opportunity of entertaining the delegation of American students and professors who have come here
from Reed College to discuss with us the
effects of the war on social and economic
conditions in our respective countries.
At a time when universities in other
parts of the world have been forced to close
their doors, the fact that we are free to hold
such international gatherings is doubly
gratifying. We should realize our fortunate
position, and at the same time our very Important responsibility.
It is up to us, on this continent which
has not yet been shadowed by actual war-
fare.to face realities and prepare ourselves
for the reconstruction which must follow. It
will be our responsibility to lead the way in
setting the world on its feet and we must
start here on the American continent.
Reed College is recognized in the United
States as being one of the leading institutions in political science in America. Therefore, Ave are confident that the delegates who
come to confer with our own student representatives will present us with many sound
suggestions. We hope that the benefit gained will be mutual in effect.
The elections this year for the President
of the Student Council and for the other
members of the Counoil are more important
than perhaps ever before. Next year is uncertain for • great many studenta, and the
problems that will arise will no doubt be
even more difficult than those that have appeared this year.
Vote for brains and executive ability!
A mistake ln these elections might prove
disastrous to the best interests of the Society.
Popularity, sportsmanship, membership in
clubs or fraternities, and mere promises
should not be considered. The position of
president particularly demands administrative ability, common sense, a clear head, and
a good portion of "punch".
The position of treasurer requires a good
business head and MUS and WUS presidents
must have organizing ability and fair impar
tial judgment. Then the Men's Athletic Representative and the Women's, besides having a knowledge of the various sports on the
campus, must also have some executive ability. The positions require much more than
athletic ability, and this factor must not be
forgotten in the campaign.
President of the LSE must be someone
with a knowledge of the various clubs on the
campus who will be able to direct their policies and look after their needs without too
much interference. Junior Member, of
course, needs the ability to organize the various jobs that come to him during the term.
It is obvious then that outstanding ability in administrating and organizing is all
important for the various positons. It can
hardly be emphasized too much: vote for

1. Success in university life is ensured
if your wallet bulges and you don't.
The secret lies in making contacts by
taking the right courses with the right
people. Alphabetical seating has been a
great boon in this respect.    For instance, it
is thanks to this fine system that we read
that Miss Annie Ulp, daughter of Old*Man
Ulp, the czar of the sardine can combine, has
married Mr. James Uggle, son of Old Man
Uggle, a bum if there ever was one. This is
the redistribution of wealth in its ugliest

seems to be that the university

for the exam rooms.

last year the V.C.U. hung out a
sign that went something like this:
"During examination we_K,

I know one chap who clutched
at this last straw, beetling up to

exam room at 9 with a divine look
on his face. He left the exam room
at 9:30 with a look on his face that
would have made Frankenstein

He smashed into Arts 204, and
started tearing up the seats, yelling:

I pledge myself In accepting the
nomination for president to serve
a* follows:
1. Active continuation of the Red
Cross Campaign.
2. The final settlement of control of the funds'from the Brock,
gym and stadium, placing authority for charges and expenditures ln
the hands of the Alma Mater Society.
3. Furthering good relations with
the government and the press by
supplying them with information
concerning students and their war
4. Inauguration of long term
planning to obtain the faculties of
law and medicine; a brief to be
presented to the government as
soon as peace tlrrva conditions are
5. Reorganization of elections so
that certain council members may
be elected early ln the spring term
to sit in on CouncU meetings without a vote until assuming office.

4. Continuity on council.
5: Complete    re-organizatlon    of
method    of    disbursement    of
student money.
All I ask la that everyone consider  the   candidates  running  for
offlce and to choose the one best
suited   for  the  position.   I   would
like to thank those who have seen
fit to nominate me.
• It is my hope during the year
1941-1942 to lead the students
In sane, business-like administration of student affairs. We must
realize, of course, that in all probability student activities wlU continue to be curtailed due to the
existing war conditions, This
means, however, that the students
must give that much more of their
time and effort in order that their
rights and privileges may be upheld.  In  brief,  my platform is:
1. A regaining and furthering of
student   building  control.
2. A sound, business-Uke financial policy.
3. A closer relationship between
the administration and tho
Alma Mater Society.
4. A more aggressive and effective war effort.

Th* Blotzkrleg has bagun. Don't

Robert Bonner
I believe that next year's President must consider waya and
means of: —
1. Establishing a Sinking Fund
to cover depreciation of Brock
Hall's furniture.
2. Doing, away with the Trust
Fund set up In the hands of
the Bursar to which rentals
from the Gymnasium, Stadium and Brock Hall go. The
recent Alma Mater Society
meeting has left no doubt aa
to  the  policy  to  be foUowed.
3. Budgeting for a reaaonable
annual surplus to prepare the
Alma Mater Society for the
possibility of greatly decreased attendance during the War
and durnlg the period foUow-
lng it.
This general proposal should also
be con-iid-red. It is a plan for
reducing the academic work to
five days, with Saturdays free for
MlUtary lectures and drill. This
has, at present, met with the approval of C.O.T.Q. authorities and
several Faculty members. The
realization of this plan would be
difficult. Admitted. But if the suggestion of having five days free
from military lectures for uninterrupted study, and having Saturday free for training would meet
with the approval of the Alma
Mater Society it should become
the outstanding point In Council
This is a minimum statement of
task and proposal. If the Socety
approves I shall promote thia
atatement to the limit.

Third Floor at The BAY. Birds  Take Cage  Title
Dominoes Here Friday
March 14 For B.C. Finals
Three Straight
% Varsity hurdled their first, and probably toughest, opposition on the trail towards the Dominion Basketball
title Wednesday night when they completed the routing in
three straight gamea of the darkhorse Angelus outfit. Wednesday's 54-37 lacing meant that the Birds scored 175 points
against Angelus' 128 in the three torrid tilts.
Every one of the Blue and Oold squad played the best
games of their collective career in this series, but the two
stars that shone the brightest were Jim Scott and Art Barton. Let's look over the past week and review their accomplishments.
Barton and Scott Spark Series
The victory march started a week        that  "no  team In  Canada" could
ago Wedneaday but, oh, mo shakily t
If you'U remember, the score waa
48-45, and lt waa only th* free
throws of "L*fty" Barton ln th*
last minute of play that pulled the
game out of the fir*. "L*fty" collected 13 pointa that game, but
the heavy artillery was under th*
direction of Jimmy Scott who garnered his highest game total of
the *eaaon, 21 counter*.
These two snip**** continued to
live In tho cloud* Saturday night
at V. A. C. Aa • matter of fact, th*
whole   erew  wa*  flyttng  so  high
havo caught them. That w*a th*
night Varaity suddenly realised
that Angelus was Juat ano4h*r baU
club—a very mediocre one at that.
Taking command right from th*
opening whistle, th* collegian*
travelled so fast th* gym floor
started to sweat.
Scott went on the rampage again
and had 18 point* before he left
the game just after half-time. Baron carried on where the tall
scienceman left off, and when Varsity finished with a 73-48 lead, Art
had another 20.
Birds Not Even  Troubled Wednesday
Wednesday we felt sorry for
Coley HaU'a men. After the flrat
quarter ln which they held Varsity to 12-aU, the hot*lm*n seemed
d**ign*d to their fat* whan th*
Blue and Oold plan* started gaining '
altitude. By the time th* half roUed
■round, that plan* had almost
reached the heights it held Saturday, and lt wa* traveling faster
every minute.
Nineteen straight point* without
an   Angelus   return   boasted    th*
count to 28-16 at the breather, and
the wingless Angel* were resorting
to rugby tactic* In a vain effort
to atop the onslaught.
Their roughaod method* had
some effect In th* third session
when Angelua climbed to within
■Ix point* of Varsity, but Scott
(again) and Barton (again) continued tholr shooting way* with
the result that they collected 14
and IT point* respectively and put
the game on lee long before the
final gong sounded.
Flynn,   Ryan,   Matheson  Steady
Although theae two fellow* , did
the scoring, Pat Flynn, Jack Ryan
and Brud Matheson deserve almost as much praise as they. G. P.
was hi* old self during thla serlea,
dashing up and down the floor,
checking and setting them up aa he
has done during the whole season.
The dark-hatred guard from
Nanaimo, Jack Ryan, outdid himself, too. His ond to end dribbling
attacks, which he undertake* as
If he were on hi* way to * funeral,
are the talk of the town.
Brud Is the brains, and whenever
he Is off the floor the team Just
doesn't seem to click with that
well-oiled precision that ha* mad*
It a fulfUtment of Coach Van
Vliet's pro-season prediction: "potential Canadian Champ*."
Doug Pedlow and Wally Johnston have proved their worth although both these boys could do
weU to correct their habit of taking
step* with th* ball.
Dominoes  Here  Next  Friday
Sandy Hay, Jack Ross, and Lynn
Sully, the three new men with the
team this year, all got Into the
game Saturday and Wednesday
nights, and proved that Varsity has
the best second team of any club
ln theae parts.
Yesterday, Manager Bob Scott
wore a broad grin as he contemplated the coming aerie* with Victoria  Dominoes.    Th*  Island  club
is reported as strong as ever this
year, but this fiict does not dismay
tho  'Birds.
The Dominoes will be here for
tho first of the best of five series
for the Provincial title next Friday
night. The second gam* la set for
Saturday, and then the boys travel

series on March 21.

yesterday when they played a
scoreless tie with Woodwards, to
go into third place.
Playing before a crowd of three
thousand, acordlng to manager
Ken Eldridge, the Varsity eleven
started the gam.- at a fast pace
and kept it up throughout. The
forwards for the campus roundballers were really playing ball
and they showed enough spirit and
fight to convince th-e experts that
this was one of the fastes and best
games of the year.
However, the team wa* lucky
more than once In both the flrat
and second halve*. Several time*
the goal-bent Bargain booter* had
the whole team beat, Including
Dennis Leong, but failed to tally
when their shots hit the bar.
Stu. Roach and Jack Rush were
outstanding for the Gold and Blue
aquad. Roach just missed scoring
in the first half with a shot that
nearly beat the Woodsonian goalie
Lister. Herd played one of his
best games of the year.
