Rift Widens
In National
C*S.A. Ranks
11 Delegates Resign
From McGiil C.S.A.
With Treasurer
The U.B.C. students' council
fell in line with other Canadian
tiniversities last Monday, when
it refused to approve plans of
the Canadian Student Assembly
Discussions Club to circulate a
questionnaire dealing with conscription on the campus.
At the same time a rift In the
ranks of the National C.S.A. continued to widen as news reached the
Ubyaaey of the reaignatlon of important C.S.A. officials.
Spencer, national treaaurer of the
Canadian Student Aaaembly has resigned from the organisation, expressed hlmaelf In entire disagreement with the exeoutive,
"I have come to believe in the
truth of the accusations that the
C.8.A.   ts  not  in  control   of  truly
representative Canadians," he stated.
MONTREAL    (CUP) — Eleven    of
McOtU's 38 atudent delegates to the
C.S.A.    Christmas   conference   withdrew  from  the  Assembly  this week
declaring that they did not support
some of Its actions and resented control by a "pressure group."
"We have been unsuccessful," they
declared, "in an attempt to change
the executive to one more representative of the views ot McOill students."
SACKVILLE, N.B—An editorial
ln the Argosy 'Weekly, publication of
Mt. Allison students, strongly attacked a "campaign of deliberate
lies" launched by the C.S.A. National
The    editorial    referred    to    the
C.S.A.  News-Letter  as  propaganda
designed to cover up previous misdeeds.
The News-Letter, circulated on the
campus, attacked the Canadian University Press, Mt. Allison University

"Oee, But It's Oreat to Dream," a
song written by freshette Enid
Fahrni, was one of the highlights of
Thursday's  Pep Meet.
OU Clark and his Varsity Orchestra played Johnny Fletcher's ar-
tangement of the piece, while Enid
herself 'sang. Other vocalists included Rosemary Collins, Frances
White, and Sid Poulton. Sid was
supported by a large cheering section who voiced the students' opinion that he should have been given
more  than  one  chorus.
Oil introduced the vocalists with
the remark "If anybody can keep in
tune for four bars we let him sing."
Referring to recent union trouble,
he said, "We're out of the dog house
now." The Varsity Orchestra ■will

Thieves Take Auto
While COTC Man
Drills In Armories
While William J. Johnston, 4430
Pine Crescent, attended C.O.T.C.
drill in the Bessborough Armories
Tuesday evening, youthful thieves
ran off with his ear parked outside
and led police a merry chase till
they found the abandoned auto six
blocks from the armories Wednesday morning.
When discovered, the ear was almost out of gas, the steering wheel
broken, and Ignition wires out.
Johnston doubted the report that
young boys had taken the ear when
he found an empty whiskey bottle
in the wrecked vehicle.

On Pass System; Get
Tickets at Quad Box
Jane Austen's immortal "Pride and
Prejudice" will be presented to the
undergraduates in dramatlo form at
Student Night next Thursday.
English 3 and English 13 students
are expeoted to turn out en masse to
spend an hour or two with one of
the best-loved famUles in English
literature, the hectic Bennets.
Tickets will    be   available   at the
Quad box office next week, on presentation of student pass.
The audience will meet the world's
most ghastly mother-in-law, matchmaking Mrs. Bennet, played by Margaret Morris. The dark attractive
Elizabeth will be taken by Nancy
Bruce, who stepped into the leading
role in her flrst year ln the club. John
Olen will be Darcy.
Other parts will be taken by: Ruth
Heyer, Pat Keatley, Jim Frasee, Bob
Haywood, Shirley Macdonald, Jim
Halcrow, Pauline Scott, Josephine
Kennedy, Alison Gumming, Lorraine
Johnston, Mary McLeod, Mary Mc-
Lorg, and Lister Sinclair.
Everyone knows the story; how
Elisabeth Bennet, the "Prejudice"
half of the title, fights the half-interest, half-antagonism she feels towards
the haughty Darcy, representing
Elizabeth's two sisters are matched
off as well. Jane, with mother's help,
lands the eligible and wealthy Mr.
Blngley. Lydla, flighty and Impulsive,
runs away with the dashing Captain
Wickham whose Intentions are as
false as the square shoulders of his
red coat. Papa Bennet ls the whimsical gentleman who pokes continual
fun at his mad family, and enjoys
himself thoroughly. Mr. Collins, D.D.,
Is the nadir of masculine appeal, an
obsequious boot-llcker who ls Anally
settled in a humble situation to the
satisfaction of all concerned.
Seventy-odd costumes have been
designed and made for the production, sets Involving a new screen technique have been especially built,
movie make-up has been Imported
from Hollywood, and generally speaking, no expense or effort has been
neglected in preparing for entertaining the students next Thursday evening.

Be Tuesday Feature;
Broadcast on CBR
The splashing dazzle ot klleg lights,
the glint of raindrops on ermine, that
jv-ne-aata-quol—summed up ln the
word eclat, that Is how the Players'
Club ls going to open its spring production, celebrating Its silver JubUee.
The gala premiere of Jane Austen's
"Pride and Prejudice" will take place
In the theatre on the campus next
Publicity chiefs ot the club have
arranged a special events broadcast
over CBR from 8.IS to 8.30.
Messages and snatches ot backstage
chat will travel out over the province,
bringing back the familiar smell of
grease paint, and the tension ot
"Curtain gtfllng up I", to graduates
near and far.
Four hundred old members of the
olub, representing every one of Its
twenty-flve years of existence, will
gather  for  the  performance.  They
will  be  greeted  by  Prof.  F.  O.  C.
Wood  who  brought  the  club  Into
existence  within  six  weeks of  the
founding   of   the   university,   and
who  waa its flrst  Honorary Prealdent.
It Is expected that guests of honor
from Victoria will attend, Including
the Hon. O. M. Weir and party. The
Lieutenant-Governor ls unable to be
present, but sends his felicitations.
A proportion of the audience at the
Tuesday premiere will be ln evening
dress. Tickets are available to students at the regular rate for that
performance, $1.05 reserved. Other
performances open to the public will
be on Friday and Saturday nights,
with seats SSc, 80c and $1.05.
Celebrating its quarter century of I
theatrical history, the Players' Club
will welcome old members to a formal reception ln the ballroom of the
Brock Building. Alumni will reminisce, exchange gossip, and compare
notes on what members who are not
present are doing In the theatrical
world. Two leading ladles of a decade
or two ago are now ln Hollywood:
one was ln Nlnotchka. Another was
given top billing on Broadway and
is now resident ln New York State.

Members of the University Musical Society are slapping themselves
on the back these days for the wonderful encouragement given them by
"R.J.," music editor of the Daily
Province, tn hts column recently.
He says, "Congratulations are due
members for their recent production
of "The Oondollers." He continues
with "Ensembles throughout were
noteworthy for refreshing vocal
qualities and clarity of diction, the
feminine vocals especially doing
splendid work. Dances moreover
were well managed."
Business Manager Fred Middle-
ton reports a definite profit of $400,
with much of the money still to
come in. This conservative estimate of profit is over and above the
$1,800 expenses incurred for the
production, and will go Into the
Alma Mater Society fund, to make
up  other  club  deficits.

This week, more than 9000

Na*i Gestapo Fails
To Halt UBC Grad
In Refugee Work
Twelve hectic hours of cross-
examination by the Nasi Gestapo
were not sufficient to crack the
morale of Beatrice M. Wellington,
U.B.C. graduate, whose heroic refugee work has won for her the admiration of the entire Cseoh nation.
Tribute to Mlas Wellington's
heroism waa paid by Professor
Frank Munk of the department of
economlca at Reed College, Oregon,
In an addreaa to the Vanoouver Institute, Saturday night.
"If there ever wss a woman who
needed courage, It was she," he
said. "She was the only peraon who
oould go to the Oestapo, browbeat
them, and get away with It."
Aa head of the Britiah Refugee
Commission, Mlas Wellington helped aome 3600 Czechs to flee their
country. She originally came to
Oeneva In the International Labor
.Office, and from there to Prague
Where Dr. Munk met her.

The elections for President of the Almn Mater Society, te be
held on Tuesday, March 12, will be a two-sided contest between
Harry Lumsden and Archie Bain. Platforms and biographies of
these two hopefuls have been included elsewhere in this issue.
But the students of this University should be taking a particularly active interest in the elections this year, because, ns nil
■hould know, the position of President of the A.M.S. is the most
Important office on the campus. Men for leading this campus must
be chosen according to their ability to direct the activities of the
Sooiety In the best interests, not of a small section of the student
body, but of all students.
It should be realized that, in emergent times such as the present, the general activities of the students ut U.B.C. have a much
greater significance than in normal periods of the country's existence. Ordinarily issues which might appear unimportant in years
of peace become almost dangerous when the nation is at war.
Consequently the leader of the Alma Mater Society must be
strong enough to inspire the fullest confidence of the Society's
members, and must have a maturity of outlook to exert a stabilising influence over the policies and functions of both Students'
Council and the Alma Mater Society as a whole.
The duties and responsibilities of the Student-president nre
not generally known, and, for that matter, cannot be succinctly
expressed here. It can only be said that his position entails grave
responsibility for the name of the University as a whole. The
relations between this University and the B.C. public have been
■lowly strengthened during the recent years. Any president must
keep this fact in mind, and must guarantee to the members of the
society that nothing will be allowed to sabotage that fine reputation which past counells have succeeded in building for the student
body here. A-'m}\
There can be no doubt as to the difficulties which will arise
next year as a result of war-time life in Canada: they will, alas!
be many. Let the students on this campus going to the polls on
Tuesday bear in mind some of the issues which must be dealt with
by the president next session, for they will be as important, if not
more so, as many of the problems of the present university yeor.
"Whatever may have happened, may be happening, or muy be
going to happen, Students, VOTE.
Letters To The Editor
Feb.  29,  1040
The Editor,
The Ubyssey.
Dear Sir:
I ahould like to add my scuttled
baritone to the choir that has been
chanting Its approval of the translation of certain types of people
from the Library to the Union Building. The former haa always been a
plaoe for students to go to study—
other studenta. In the name of
amusement, they must have something to ocoupy their bodiea, or, In
some cases, their minds; but in the
name of work, they have alwaya
been willing to sit hours on end,
quite oontent if their vital organs
continued to give them life. Lately,
however, King John's chateau has
been beoomlng more and more the
oentre of gay social gatherings, gab-
fiestas, and certain intra-mural
sports suoh as "Shoot the Ink to Me,
Stink," "The Reserve Desk Runa-
iound," and "Short and Long Distance woo-pltohtng." I, personally,
bave seen sophomores pitch woo
from angles and positions hitherto
considered impraotioal, and with
surprisingly high percentages of
.success, too.
But many of them are too offensive In other ways. I am thinking
particularly of the Hail Fellow, All
Wet species, the specimen of which
springs Into the Library with the
lolling of distant drums and the
blare of inaudible trumpets. You
know the type I mean—he has convinced himself that he Is the prey
of women and the envy of men,
that he is the incorporation of every
tonic advertisement that has appeared since the discovery of professional models. He sweeps off his overcoat, a nightmare ln tweed, thereby
generously bathing the vicinity with
rain-drops, and slaps the horrible
thing onto a radiator, causing both
it and King John to hiss and hoot
in thetr respective quarters. Then
he proceeds to whisk about, cuffing
friends and relatives on the back,
encouraging them, tossing a good
word here, a bad breath there, and
generally creating an Impression of
babbling   activity.
Then, of course, there is the Glamour   Girl.     Ah   me.   what   would   a
university be without its glamour
Sills? Answer: empty. I need not,
p.nd probably could not, describe her.
She saunters In reluctantly, with
nome kind of rubber book under her
arm, her engine Idling ln the Rld-
dlehough Rhumba. Her eye-brows,
by courtesy of Helena Rubinstein,
jack themselves up Into the inevitable surprised altitude, so that she
looks at you as though you were
something that had been previewed
under a plank of rotten -.rood. She
is Invariably too late for a seat, but
she sways speculatively up and down
the wings anyhow, Juat to make sure
that the girls are properly burning
and the boys Improperly yearning!
She leaves with a toaa of her head,
or something, because she didn't
want to sit there anyway, so there.
Then, it's back to work, men, with
a sigh  and a shake of the head.
Incidentally, perhaps, you are not
aware that there was once a science-
man in the Library. Despite the
flood of rotten letters from skeptics
that will doubtless greet this statement, this solenoeman was actually
seen In the Library. It happened In
the late '20'a. It la true that It was
a little scienceman, and It was very
tired,   and   lt   might   have   mistaken
For the first time ln the history of
this Unlveralty, students are faced
with a genuine polltloal Issue ln their
OouncU elections. The Issue Is one
that Is troubling the whole Dominion
at the moment, and one of whloh we
are all only too conscious.
There will actually be two political
parties running candidates for next
year's Council. One Is Conservative,
of the same solid, far-thinking, levelheaded type that has run the school
so well during the past several years;
the other—to speak of lt kindly—Is
There Is a rumor that the O.8.A.
is putting up a slate of oandldates.
This would not be a bad thing, perhaps, If Canada were not up to her
ears ln International conflict. But
under existing circumstances, It looks
odd. Any group whloh considers Itself
a maltreated minority Just now ls a
group to be watched.
This Is hardly the time for petty
polltloal disputation. Canada la striving for national solidarity; the universities of Canada should aspire to
some unity of purpose—and that single motivation should not be of a
type that disagrees with Dominion
national polloy.
We do not want the University of
British Columbia to be the focal
point of adverse criticism by politicians, other colleges, or the man ln
the street. To obviate suoh an eventuality, let us give support to those
oandldates who represent national
and university tradition, maturity of
mind and purpose, and the opinion of
the majority.
And we can be aure of electing
such people only If every single
member of the Alma Mater Sooiety
recognises the responsibility Incumbent upon him—that of exercising
hla right to vote.
Many of us who visited the campus
on Saturday—Open House Day—were
pleased to hear and see Oil Clark's
orchestra holding forth ln the lounge
of the Brock Building during tea.
Several b-okays to Oil and the
boys. After the difficulties they've
had with Council, Jamieson, and
Local 148, I was more than agreeably
surprised to see them being very fair

It was true College Spirit that motivated Oil's contribution to the Open
House show—nothing else. The band
should reap the reward of that altruism ln many future engagements.

"That any sane organization, even
the C.S.A., should attempt to cover
up their misdeeds by a News-Letter
auoh as the one mentioned above Is
beyond conjecture," the Argosy
states. "The statements made are
unsubstantiated by any documentary evidence whatsoever ... In moat
cases the statements are mostly
false or entirely so. The National
exeoutive of the C.S.A. has struck
a dying blow at no one but themselves. The organisation has not
waited to die a natural death but
has slain itself by Its own Iniquity."
MONTREAL (CUP)—Seven hundred members of the MoOill student

A similar change was ordered by

With the presidential oampaign
here the students would be wise li
they realised and understood the
qualities needed by their president
before oaatlng their votes. On Oounoil the AM.S. needs students who
are capable, qulok to recognise opportunities, and wllUng to see the
trend of student thought. As chairman, the AM.8. prexy must see that
Oounoil seises the opportunities that
are available and, furthermore, he
must ourb or.encourage the brainstorms nursed by his fellow councillors.
We have had good presidents In
the past. There Is no reason why we
should break with tradition.
Mather recommended the floating
of a $40,000 bond Issue for the erection of the Stadium.
Brynelsen started the Brook Memorial Oampaign. Oould, Oarey, and
McOulre finished lt.
Pearson realised that a conservative polloy was needed "for the duration."
These six presidents acted as they
did because they understood the
relationship between the Alma
Mater Society—that's yon and me
—and the University, as well as the
relationship between the University,
and the Province of British Columbia.
They understood because they had
trained themselves to see things nob
discernible by careless eyes or careless minds.
The Japanese have an old proverb:
"A look is worth a thousand words."
The students should look before
they beUeve the thousands of words
they will hear during the elections.
Furthermore they should elect a
Council whom they know will look
before they commit  themselves with
No one wUl dispute the fact that
Open House this year was a great
No one can.
The thousands of Vancouver citizens, men and women, boys and girls,
who wandered through the various
exhibits with wondrous eyes and
open minds returned home filled with
a vague yet tangible realization that
the University (to phrase It colloquially) "has something on the Ball."
Their comments, all favorable, are
more than a flt tribute to the ceaseless efforts of Ray Jones, ln charge
of the engineering and scientific exhibits, and Dick Jarvis, in oharge of
the clubs.
It ls perhaps significant that for
the flrst time slnoe U.B.O. went on
parade the L.S.E. clubs co-operated
to the fullest of their ability to give
an accurate picture of University
extra-curricular life.
It seems trite but orchids to the
Open House Oommittee.
As Major Finlay ot the Civil Engineering Department has suggested
the second and third year sclencemen
have a record to meet and to excel
when they promote their Open House
two years from now.
No doubt they will, for they possess
indomitable spirit.

One of the charming co-eds on the
Ubyssey stall said to me several Mines
during the past year: "Nemo, the
intelligent student body don't want a
serious paper. They do not want to
read philosophical essays; they do
not want to see people panned.
"They want humor, something to
laugh at, something that is amusing."
One of the most amsuing things I
have noticed—that really makes me
laugh—ls psychology. Perhaps that is
why so many studes swat their way
through psych courses. Something to
laugh at.
Romance and love is forever being
ridiculed by the callous psychologist
who no doubt ls amused at debunking Kaf love. In a recent address one
—H. L. Edle of the University of
Sidney—struck what he considered a
death blow to the traditional lovers'

A Oanadlan University Press
By Norman J. Altitedter
For the first time slnoe Its Inauguration, this column pauses for a
story from Montreal's Sir Oeorge
Williams Oollege. It seems that a
"Qwhls" was oonduoted down Drummond St. way a while ago with an
eye to finding out what students
think . . . (If?) . . . Hitler won hands
down as "Public Nuisance No. 1", but,
and this Is quite Interesting, a strong
showing was made by qulsses. This
probably accounts for the faot that
the young Georgians conducted not
a quls but a qwhls. The pollers also
tried to find out the names of the
most popular of the men and women
students. But the results were too
varied, and with a faint de gustlbus
Qwhls, Inc., went back to his most
popular oo-ed.
Manitoba's Mock Parliament Is
mopping its collective brow after deciding definitely that the state should
not endorse birth control. The only
time mock parliaments ever get anywhere Is when they decide that the
state shouldn't do things lt Isn't going to do anyway. Refuting the argument that birth control would clear
slums, one debater said, "Birth control would remove the only beautiful
thing in the slums—the children."
Thla column takes no sides ln publio,
but there Is an obvious fallacy somewhere ln that statement. Since most
universities are old buildings ln old
sections of the city, they are usually
situated quite near the slum dlstriots.
Any one of you can go out today and
see how beautiful are the chUdren In
the slums, and If you think they are
(which I don't—see Steinbeck), ponder on the Inherent Wrong ot taking
them out of the slums. You would
think the kids were trees or something.
"In the printing office of "The
Varsity", the University of Toronto
newspaper, is a cut (a lead casting
of a picture used to reproduce the
picture ln print) taken from an advertisement for lingerie which once
appeared In that newspaper. As lingerie ads usually do, lt portrayed a
beautiful young lady clad ln the advertiser's product. There Is a sheet
of paper pasted on the back of this
cut, and on lt ls written, so that all
may see, "THIS IS NOT THE
BRONZE BABY". So the freshman
reporter flrst oomes Into contact with
the most coveted trophy In Oanadlan
lnter-collegiate sports — simply because It Is coveted by the ladles.
For you who are still Ignorant, the
Baby Is emblematic of senior women's basketball championship of the
Ontario and Quebec universities. As
this ls being written, the larruping
ladles from Varsity, Western, McOlll
and Queen's will soon be bashing
eaoh other around just for the Bronze
Baby. Aa you read, It will be all over
and onoe again the Bronze Baby will
bt something that Isn't a lady In
lingerie who lives ln the cut-box of
"The Varsity."
Three cheers for the Aggies at University of British Columbia! You can
shout all you like Hurray for Captain
Spalding, and hold that line, but the
U.B.C. farmers are really something
worth cheering for. Why? Because
they beat the Engineers—ibig, bad
and bold. They took a crate of eggs,
from their own farm, and descended
upon the red-sweatered men of the
slide-rule. They had skunked the
forty beerers the day before and they
were out to do lt again. Many chicks
remained unborn as the yellow yolks
splattered the hapless brldge-buUders
and oil-drillers. Even the professors
present came ln for their share of
the barrage, and one of them had to
raise the white flag to escape. Then
came the big moment: the Aggies
seized an engineer, not fleet of foot,
and tore his red Science sweater
from his back. They hung it in their
trophy room like a scalp beside the
three suits of engineering underwear
(that's what the report says) they
had procured the day before. It was
too much. The men of the set-square
grovelled in the dust, wept into their
forty beers and sued for peace. And
from this year onward, the anniver,-
sary of the Aggie triumph will be a
day of sackcloth and ashes for the
engineers. So shout, chillun, sing
Hallelujah!   It's   the   U.B.C.   Aggies— |

of the three game series.
Although Chilliwack took the flrst game easily and many of

and down 21-16 ot the half. But

For Ruggermen
Saturday brings up a very Important match for the Varsity "A" squad
as they meet Ex-Britannia ln the
final game of the season. Tied at
present with the Meralomas at the
top of the rugger heap, the studenta
must win this game to stay ln the
running for the Miller Oup. If the
Campusmen lose and the Meralomas
either win or tie, It's "coltalns" for
the students..
If they win and the Meralomas
lose or tie, the Miller silverware ls
cinched to remain ln the dusty archives of King John's domain. If
both of these outfits register wins,
there will have to be a special playoff
game to decide which one will acquire the coveted wassail mug.
