Fervid Arguments Over C0.T.C.
Presented At Anti-War Meeting
Speakers Lecture on Armaments,  Facism
and Economic Side of War
"Fellow cannon-fodder!"
With these words Estelle Matthison set the keynote to a
gusty anti-war meeting Thursday noon, when the C.O.T.C. was
abolished, when war was condemned to perdition, and when the
equanimity of the Theologicals was severely shaken.
Although  tha  meeting  was  called <$

purpose tf condemning var, a coalition of three organizations, the S.C.M.
tho Varsity Y, and the Student
League, introduced a motion for the
abolition of the C.O.T.C. and the reversal of the funds that would be
saved to bursaries for needy students.
Discussion on this motion finally
threw the meeting into disorder —
with communists, theologs, of every
degree of red, pink, and pale pink,
fighting amongst themselves.
The motion was moved by Cyril
Chave, who stated that the C.O.T.C.
was a militaristic agent that should
be removed from the campus. He
accused the Corps of being a fester
in campus life.
Seconding the motion, Sam Roddan
urged support on the grounds of
Christian principles. "We must clean
up our own back yard," he said. "If
we wish to have peace we should
abolish this militaristic body from
campus life."
After the formal moving and seconding of the motion, the meeting
literally blew up. Alastair Munro,
In support of the motion, stated that
tho C.O.T.C. used bribery to entice
"That's a lie!" shouted Nifty Har-
wood, from the rear of the hall.
Vernon Smith, the chairman of the
meeting, called Harwood to order and
Munro continued.
"If the free meals, bonuses, and
free trips in tht summer, are not
plain bribery, what arj they?" he
asked. "The C.O.T.C. pays a |30
bonus for first class exam marks, and
even gives $5 to a candidate who
makes between 40 and 50 percent—is
that anything but bribery?"
Against Clergy
Another speaker asked where this
money came from. "Who pays the
price of these gifts to our armed
bulldogs?" he queried.
Suddenly, Nick Rodm jumped to
his feet. Failing to get attention
from the chairman he stood on a
seat and shouud, "I move an am-
mendment to the motion!"
"If we are going to abolish the
C.O.T.C, I move we abolish all the
clergy ln Canada!"
Shouts,  cheers,  and  jeers greeted
this  statement.   Vernon   Smith   at-

European Conditions
Discussed At I.R.C.
Mr. James A. Gibson, Rhodes
Scholar in 1931 and first secretary of
the I.R.C., addressed thc members of
the International Relation;] Club yesterday afternoon on "The Question
Marks in Europe Today."
First Hand Knowledge
Mr. Gibson in his travels through
European countries has gained first
hand knowledge of the conditions
there. In Germany ho found a very
strained atmosphere because of the
many restrictions. Freedom of speech
in the newspapers is Impossible because of the clo3e censorship and pictures of the places visited are not allowed.

Aesthetic Art
Is Discussed
"Round  Teapots  Are  Better
Than Square"
"There are three sides to education; the Intellectual side, the moral
or character-building side, and the
aesthetic side; it is with this last that
I propose to deal." Mr. ..' E. Barton,
Head Master of Bristol Grammar
School, in thi3 way introduced an
extremely Interesting lecture on the
place of art In education last Tues
Mr. Barton's mam precept was that
we should look upon beauty as an
experience, and not as i habit or a
custom. "Any true art, if it is true
art," he stated, "must possess freshness, perfection, a certain importance,
and an indiflnable quality which may
best be termed genius."
Dealing with the first cf these attributes, freshness, Mr. Barton explained that io the artl.«tlc mind,
which lives Intensely and for the moment, everything is new, fresh, contemporary. True art cannot be appreciated by argument, it must Itself
exert an influence on the observer,
which is indirectly the influence of
the mind of the artist, tnd to recapture the fullnes3 of his experience we
must see the work of art as if it had
just been created. This is the quality
of freshness. "This point of view is
difficult to attain, howewr," said the
speaker, "for with respect to the same
object, a boy may think it beautiful,
his father think it ugly, and his grandfather consider it Immoral."
Tea Pots
Then, in regard to perfection, Mr.
Barton used the word "functionalism"
and went on to show that not crude
functionalism, but splrttual functionalism made a work of art "A square

Aiming towards the ideal of an
"all-student performance" the Players' Club, under the direction of Miss
Dorothy Somerset, is succeeding this
year in what was attempted last year
namely, the holding of make-up
classes to train selected members to
do the work that has formerly been
done for them, either by a professional or by kind amateur friends.
Spring Play Cast Taught
The spring play cast form the nucleus of the group, for they will have
to make-up themselves on tour. One
or two others are included because of
special aptitude or willingness, and
the class is under the direction of
Vivian Hood as convener.
Besides giving Instruction herself,
Miss Somerset has arranged for lectures and displays by specialists in
the art of make-up, and the first of
these was given on Tuesday afternoon
by Mr. Frank Crowson of the Little
Make Up
The Green Room was transformed
Into a sort of shrine for the occasion,
with blinds drawn and no light except from two amber globes beside
the mirror. Here an interested group
looking quite bizarre in the half-light,
clustered round Mr. Crowson as he
performed his priestly rites upon the
face of Dorothy Menten.
Dorothy was offered up for sacrifice because her make-up as the
prison matron is one of the most difficult in the club's one-act play, "A
Moment of Darkness," and it was to
this Drama Festival entry that the
day's devotions were consecrated.

Romantic Plot And Fascinating Songs
Found In Musical Operetta Ruddigore
Jim Hinton, a freshman, was
3eriously burned about the face
and eyes yesterday afternoon in
the Chemistry I Lab. Jim sustained his painful injury when
some potassium permanganate
with which he was working exploded. After receiving first aid
treatment at the University

Public Speaking Course
Has Successful Start
Over seventy-five undergraduates
have enrolled in the new public
speaking course inaugurated under
the auspices of Mr. John Sumner,
President of the Literary and Scientific Executive.
Four classes have been organized,
each me'eting twice a week. The first
meets on Monday and Wednesday
noons, the second on those afternoons, while the third and fourth are
held at these times Tuesday and
Thursday. In this manner each member has two classes per week. The
first of these, held in Arts 104, Wednesday noon, saw an excellent attendance.
To date the greatest difficulty has
been to obtain instructors about seven so far having volunteered their
services. Mr. J. Gould, from the
Parliamentary Forum, Mr. J. Sumner, Mr. Millar, Professor Boving, Professor Day, Dean Bollert, and Mr.
Conway, being among3t these. Since
much trouble has been t-xpended in
getting these classes started the importance of regular attendance was
strongly emphasized.
At the beginning of each of these
lectures the instructor will speak for
a few minutes on, for example, platform etiquette. The student will be
required, for the first wetk or so, to
come prepared to give a short talk.
Later the length of those talks will
be Increased and impromptu speeches
The course having ovrved so popular, it is quita probablo that it will
be incorporated into the University
Curriculum next term. It is understood that Dean Buchanan is very
favorable to its incorporation, which,
at present, is under consideration of
the Faculty committee on courses.
War Not Likely
Says Professor
A world where international anarchy is still prevalent, where conditions to ensure peace are without
the authority of concerted action, and
where the threat of war still hangs
in the balance, was outlined by Professor Soward at a noon hour lecture
Tuesday. To a capacity house (Arts
100) the speaker gavo a rapid fire
view of the situation "20 \ ears After."
"Barring the action of a fool or of
a fanatic," stated Prof. Soward, "war
is not nearly as imminent as the press
of today declares." Four factors, he
claimed, have grown up since 1914
that have transformed society and
that render a European war in the
near future unlikely — the airplane,
radio, fascism and communsim.
The present development of the
airplane would transform the war of
fronts into a war of areas, said Prof.
Soward. The reply against air attack is immediate counter-attack,
and as there is no effective resistance
against air-raids, European statesmen
hesitate to bring about a first attack.
Since 1914, radio has become a
great influence in tho mobiliization
of public opinion, in the immediate
transmission of foreign news, and ln
spreading propaganda. Governments
have shown a tendency to place radio
under state control in nearly all
countries. Radio makes difficult the
independent action of any government without publicity.
The  development  of  Fascism  and
Communism since the war exists as
a threat that another war would be

Romance Shattered
An incident of interest to quite a

these two.
Under false names these people all

in the case were made unhonorable
and, now alas the romance between
J. D. and Mme. X is shattered.
Professor C. B. Wood of the University staff will be the lecturer at
the weekly meeting of the Vancouver
Institute to be held on Saturday evening at 8:15 in Room 100, Arts Building, tho University of British Columbia. His subject will be ''The Future
of Secondary Education, and will
therefore be of interest, not alone to
the usual audience of thc Institute,
but to all interested in education, and
in particular to the staffs of the Vancouver High Schools, and to all parents and members of the Parent-
Teachers Association.

Drama Festival
At Avenue Theatre
With the ticket sale reaching the
1500 mark, Judge Lennox, chairman
of the Drama Festival being held
last night, tonight and tomorrow night
in the Avenue Theatre, promises that
play lovers are being treated to
three rare programs of comedy, tragedy and drama.
With the exception of a small block
all other seats are rush. Due to the
length of the program, the curtain
must go up at eight o'clock sharp.
For this reason, doors will be open
at seven.
A short criticism of the four plays
offered, will be given each evening.
The final decision will be given at
the close of the Saturday performance.
Aggie Pep Meet
The "Cariboo Cowboys' will be the
feature of today's Aggie Pep meet,
to be held at noon in the auditorium.
Rumour has it that one of the bovine
denizens of the Aggie Bavn will be
among the artist.% also that a member of the Heinz Band will play
"Carmen" on a tin whistle.
Students may be interested in
knowing that thc Pep Club will not
be in charge of the program.
How much the Playca' Club has
done for the University in a monetary sense was brought to light in
plain figures when Prof. F. G. C.
Wood, founder and former honorary-
president, gave a talk on the history
of the club to present members on
"We started in 1915,'' said Prof.
Wood, "just nix weeks after the University began. In our third year we
cleared a profit of $1200, equal to your
total taking last year. Altogether in
the war years, wc raised 16,000 for
the University Red Cross and the

Witches'   Curse   and
Ghosts Featured
By Choristers
Excitement is running high in the
Musical Society as choristers and
principals practice feverously to put
the finishing touches on the opera,
Ruddigore. This dramatic Gilbert
and Sullivan production will be produced at the University theatre Feb.
21, 22 and 23 under the direction of
Mr. C. Haydn Williams.
Plot Synopsis
Similar in style to the old-fashioned melodramas the opera is based
on the disastrous effect1? cf a witches
curse. In punishment for their ruthless torturing of witches the Murgatroyd*, Baronets of Ruddigore, are
forced to commit a daily crime. Failure to fulfill the terms of the curse
results in excruciating torture and
Seeking to avoid this life of crime
the true heir disguisos himself as
Robin Oakappie and livt-s the simple
life of the English village-dweller.
However, fate overtakes him. Robin
falls ln love with Rose Maybud but
through shyness cannot reveal his
feeling. He enlists the aid of hia
sea-faring foster brother, Richard,
who promises to speak to Rose on
Robin's behalf. Dick unfortunately
succumbs to Rose's charm, proposes
and is accepted.
Happy Ending
The absolutely secure his possession
of Rose, Dick reveals Robin's true
identity as Sir Ruthven Murgatroyd,
Baronet of Ruddigore. The present
title-holder Sir Despard gladly relinquishes the hated position which
Robin sadly assumes. At Ludicrous
indeed are his attempts to commit
the daily crime without actually
breaking the law. Annoyed by his
evasions his outraged ancestors come
alive and threaten dire punishment
if he does not at once carry off a
Robin complies but his unfortunate
choice is Dame Hannah, the former
sweetheart of hi3 ancestor, Sir Roderick. This resurrected gentleman ia
furious when he learns of the deed
but is overjoyed to be with Hannah
once more, though his joy is overshadowed by the necessity of returning to the grave. Again Robin cornea
to the rescue, breaks the curse, regains the love1 of the fair Rose, leaving Richard to content himself with
another village maiden.
Frosh Class Party
Needs More Fees
The Embassy Ballroom will be the
scene of the first '38 class party next

With regard to actual furtherance of the
anti-war movement, the meeting held yesterday noon can hardly be described as a success. This is not because the students are generally in favor of war, as they have already
indicated that they are opposed to it.
One of the immediate causes which lowered
the meeting to little better than a fiasco was
the fact that many of the students who were
present regarded the whole thing as a rather
amusing entertainment. These people should
have stayed away in the first place, as they
had no definite opinions to express either for
or against the purpose of the gathering, and
only hindered any sane discussion that might
have contributed to the attainment of some
definite result. They showed little consideration to those persons who were sincerely interested in the cause, whether the latter be
supporting it or not.
Another reason for the failure of the meeting was that the speakers either allowed the
discussion to descend to the level of petty
squabbling, or if they did keep it on a dignified plane, they confined it to arguments showing the disasterous results of war and the evils
of the private manufacture of arms — arguments which the average university student
has heard so often already that he is already
convinced that they are true. Such discussion
gets nowhere. These students who are seriously interested in advancing the cause of
peace could achieve much more constructive
results by such means as forming study groups
to find practical means of decreasing the probability of war, than by mere affirmation of
their desire of attaining such an end.
The final result of the meeting—a resolution favoring the abolition of the C. O. T. C.
from the campus—can hardly be taken seriously. The gathering was composed merely of a
small fraction of the student body, and therefore does not indicate the majority opinion of
the undergraduates of this university.
Nor were the votors given any previous
opportunity of viewing without prejudice all
the arguments both for and against such action. In view of Canada's practically defenceless position at the present time the Department of National Defence could hardly be
accused of rampant militarism. What is needed now is not such dangerous and inconsequential measures as abolition of the C. O. T. C.
That can come later after the root of the main
question is solved.
And the one constructive suggestion of the
day was the socialization of industry — one
which comes under the head of politics, therefore requiring to be approached not merely
from the angle of its relation to the abolition
of war.

More Wind and Dishwater
Well, we have had our anti-war meeting. It
couldn't have been much worse.
The Anti-War Council did not get a chance
to put its own motion at all. The audience
voted in favor of a resolution which has not
the least chance of getting any results. The
pacifists upbraided the C. 0. T. C. with care-
full parliamentary insults.     The exasperated
military body replied with hasty, unparlia
mentary insults.
A budding militarist proposed a ridiculous
amendment. This in turn exasperated the pacifists, who refused to have it voted upon. Outsiders, who have never before been glimpsed
upon the campus, made speeches and voted on
the question. The church became the church
militant. The meeting got out of hand. The
Pub Office intelligentsia heckled both sides and
cheered rudely.
We got doses of milk-and-water socialism,
rampant patriotism, agressive pacifism, conciliatory pacifism, Oxford Group idealism and
horse-laughs. Half the audience left for one
o'clock lectures. I stayed till the end and got a
I still have it, and it is too much trouble
for me to bother drawing the obvious conclusions from all this for your benefit. If you
can't db it for yourself, you can go to the next

A La Lanterne!
Among the low-lived snides inhabiting the
campus is a breed of mangy chimpanzee, one
of which has removed a volume of the Letters Club Archives from the shelves of the
The papers of the club are not necessarily
the ultimate expression of literary artistry,
but they are the results of some of the all too
scarce creative work being done by students of
this university. They are also, being in manuscript, completely irreplaceable.
It is not only the Letters Club which has
suffered, but many other valuable books are
constantly disappearing, books which cannot
be replaced, and which are urgently needed
by other students. The loss of the Archives
volume, however, has resulted in a number of
books being removed from the shelves for safekeeping. It may eventually end in the stacks
being closed to students.
It is hardly possible that anyone could do
this through forgetfulness, but even if it were,
such negligence could only be excused through
a confession of imbecility. Apart from this re
mote possibility, the only way this could have
happened is by deliberate intention. Complete
disregard of others is a necessary part of the
character of this culprit.
It is not reasonable to hope for the re<
formation of the people who do these things
There is no adequate punishment provided for
them. They can only be expelled.
However, in the interests of the community, without vindictiveness and without malice, anyone discovering one of them should
drop him gently down the elevator shaft—and
then run the elevator down on top of him.
Hypnotism Is Subject
For Philosophy Club
"Hypnosis is now a recognized
branch of Medical Science," stated
Miss Betty Robertson av the regular
meeting of the Philosophy Club held
Tuesday evening at the home of Dr.
Pilcher. Doctors, however, are careful not to use hypnosis on subjects
mentally weak or abnormal, as it
might produce dangerous results. Although persons in a nypnotic state
cannot be prompted to commit actions repugnant to their moral nature
legislation is necessary to prevent the
use of such a power ln the hands of
an evil-intentloned operator.
Hypnotism is characterized by in
creased suggestibility and produces a
condition closely allied to somnabu
lism, which is allied to sleep. Hypnosis was first practised by Parcelsus
ln the 16th century, and became real
ly popular in the 18th and 19th with
Mesmer and Bernheim.
The early theories v/eic based on
a magiretic fluid but modern investigators recognize it as a psychological study. It found a practical use in
surgical operations but tht- discovery
of chloroform abolished this.
Bridges divides peop'ie Into four
groups, non-suggestible, suggestible,
contra-suggestible, and variable. Hypnosis can, however, be produced in
the great majority of normal persons, providing they submit themselves willingly. Characteristic conditions of hypnotic technique are limitation of movement, a submissive attitude, emotional indifference to the
consequences, a monotonous stimulus
and definite suggestions.
Harry Katznelson, n graduate in
Agriculture from this University, is
now pursuing post-graduate research
work at the State College of Agriculture, Pullman, Wash. In summing
up his impressions of Pullman, he
states: "The students at Washington
State College are on the whole less
serious with respect to their work,
which to my mind is somewhat less
difficult than at U.B.C. The School
of Agriculture is not as unified as
that of U.B.C, because of its larger
size and greater diversity of courses
and activities. One Agriculture Club,
one social, and several honorary fraternities exist. There ore splendid
research facilities here, to satisfy the
most diverse interests. Instructors
are, as in every other college; some
good, some mediocre, others "

Walter Kennedy suggests to us that it
would be a good thing to extend our noon
hours to half past one, and institute compulsory
physical jerks in the extra 30 minutes. At least
they would be compulsory for those inactive
souls like myself who do not take part in athletics of some kind.
It sounds like a good idea. I naturally feel
my free, white and over twenty-one gorge
rise against the suggestion that I should be
compelled to take exercise, but I begin to
think I might overcome that.
I hate the prospect of being hauled to the

of the stick.

The importance of tho proper use
of materials also comes under perfection. Mr. Barton mads it definite
that marble must be use! v/here marble and only marble woidd do, and
that other materials should be used
with the same discrimination.
In discussing his third point, the
speaker put it in the fovra of a ques-
ton: "How deeply does tht object affect you?"
In conclusion, Mr. Barton showed
that more important than any of these
points was the fact that, in a true
work of art, we see revealed something of the artist's consciousness and
feel the constructive intelligence of
his mind.
Big Stuff
Messrs. Clarke and Tisdale of the
Dominion Forage Crops Branch, who
are at present doing special work at
this University, addrersed senior
Agronomy and Animal Husbandry
students on Tuesday evening, Feb.
11. Their address dealt with forage
crop oroblems in British Columbia
and tho Canadian praire, and, according to Dr. Moe was followed by
a "very intelligent discussion," in
which the students took part freely."
Hick Stuff
As part of thc program of the annual field trip to Agassi/, made under the auspices of tho Agriculture
Club, it has been decided to hold a
tug-of-war competition between the
various departments and first and
second years. It is hoped that an
Aggie all-star team will ultimately
be formed which will issue a challenge to other classes.
Clandestine Club
It is rumored that a new and sinister organization has been formed
on the campus under the title of the
Secret Society of Dum Dums. We
gather that it is somewhat after the
nature of a Janitor's Club, since one
of the aims attributed to it is "to
clean house for fraternities and other
campus organizations which refuse
to do so themselves."

the whole of all profits made by University organizations must be turned

Past Troubles
"At this tune, too," said Mr. Wood,
"we were taxed $500 a year towards
the injured players' fund of the Alma Mater Society. Well, we might
be very sympathetic towards athletics, but sometimes we wished that
a piece of scenery would fall on one
of our members, so that w'd get some
benefit from our heavy contribution."
While the Point Grey site and present buildings were still a dream, the
club was putting aside the profits
of one night's performance each year
to equip the stage in the Huditorium,
and by the time it was built had
83,600 for the purpose. Also, from
the club fees of the members, $200
was saved to furnish thc Green Room.
All this was in the nature of an
unofficial "pep talk" by Mr. Wood
to inspire the members of this generation to sell the spring play tickets
which were distributed to them at
the meeting.
The editor is about to undertake some intensive sleuthing
to discover the Identity of the
affectionate gentleman on the
campus who set his heart a-
fluttering by sending him a Valentine last Wednesday. The
only available clue at present
is the male handwriting.
Make-up Art
To Be Learned
(Continued from Page 1)
Feeling his way with care and explaining the reason for each shadow
and line, Mr. Crowson worked such
a transformation upon Dorothy that
ohter members of the melodrama cast
unfeelingly suggested that she be
put in a cage and kept just as she
was till the night of performance.
Dorothy, however, did not fall in
with the idea.
New Methods
Mr. Crowson gave splendid instruction in both the technique and theory
of make-up, and created much interest with a short description of a
new method: in which the base
cream is made the colour of the
shadows and then high-lighted, just
the opposite of the ordinary procedure.
The classes ln make-up ere indicative of the wide field covered by
spring play preparations. Indeed, the
notice board contains almost as many
calls to scenery conferences, etc., as
it does to rehearsals, and that is not
a few.
The east has been completed by the
choice of Stu. Keate for the leading
male role of George Tesman. Keate
is a senior member of the club and
was especially prominent in "Alibi"
two years ago, when he played the
part of a hypocrltal doctor.

Second Game Of
Basketball Semi-
Finals Tomorrow
A Win for the Students Saturday Will Eliminate Newsies in Playoff Race
Varsity Will Play Dominion Champion Province Team in Gymnasium
Saturday night at the Varsity gym will see the second
playoff tilt between Province and Varsity for the right to meet
Adanacs in the League final. This battle promises to be the
most exciting that will be seen at Point Grey this season, in
spite of the fact that Students gave<t>
their opponents o setback on Wednesday. The Wednesday before, Varsity sent Province to the showers at
the lower end of a 46-27 count, only to
have the Champs return to form on
the following Saturday and take a
thrilling one-point overtime decision.
"Hunk" Holds Purves
It is well known to all interested in
the hoop sport that the chief scoring
threat, and general big-shot of the
Province squad is the six-and-a-half
foot string known as John Purves.
This star has scored an average of
over twelve points in the league
games this season. No man has been
able to check him effectively—until
the last couple of games. However, in
these last two games "Hunk" Henderson has been assigned to the "impossible" task, and has done wonders.
In both tilts he has held Mr. Purves
to four points, while he himself has
collected nineteen. Perhaps John has
suffered only a temporary slump—tomorrow's game will decide.
Blue Ribbons Good
A fact which may or may not signify that all these local playoffs are
futile is that the Ellensburg Normal
quintet, victors to the tune of 25-20
over Varsity a week or so ago, were
practically whitewashed by Victoria's Blue Ribbons,.Dominion Champions before Province. If this team is
able to do this, able to hold its own
with the best teams in Washington,
and able to beat the Westminster Adanacs 37-29 as they did in November, it should be able to down any
except an all-star Vancouver team.

Bitter rivals from time immemorial, the Thunderbirds and
the Orientals met in the final of this historic series in 1933, and
dished up one of the most spectacular struggles ever witnessed
in this city, the magnificent silver mug going to the latter by
virtue of a last-minute goal after the squads had chalked up
three counters apiece.

position. The rest of the team will

Henderson Is High Scorer for Varsity and
Does a Great Job of Checking Purves
Taking command at the opening whistle, Varsity's student
cage stars went to work Wednesday night and took a handy
25-14 victory over Province. At no time was the result doubtful. The erstwhile Dominion champions were a very befuddled
and disorganized team throughout.
No man on the Varsity team can rightfully be singled out
as outstanding. All the boys seemed inspired and "screened/'
checked, shot, and dribbled to perfection. Jimmy Bardsley and
Art Willoughby were on the ball all the time, fighting hard for
ever yadvantage. "Hunk" Henderson, emulating his two famous brothers, checked Purves to a standsill, outjumped him and
was high scorer for Varsity. Tommy Mansfield turned in one
of his best games of the year and the sight of "Joe" Pringle
breaking up Province plays with his long reach became monotonous.

Fascism, in Italy and Germany, constitutes a menace to existing governments there, in wartime. Should
these governments issue arms to the
people under conscription, there Is
the threat that dlssentors will rise
in revolution to overthrow a system
that they hate. Thus the Fascist
States today exist under conditions
which render it unlikely that, although they advocate war, they will
engage in it hastily.
World Anarchy
The problem of world anarchy is
the gravest confronting the hope of
international peace. There must be
acceptance of the fundamental fact
that no nation today can live to Itself. Collective action to ensure international peace is not impossible:
it demands only a recognition of the
principle that no nation must be it's
own judge. When the nations have
realized that there must be a surrender of some measure of national
authority to a higher authority, International peace will be possible.
"Security under International control

of self reliance, Mr. Gibson stated,
this is only because the people are
"on the spot" in that they either have
to leave the country or give their
full support to the Nazi regime. The
reason for the great degree of political regimentation is because people
are forced into that way of thinking
in order to hold their positions.
No Student Government
In Italy the speaker found the
same spirit present. Th) students at
the universities seem uninterested in
the natural things. There is no student government, the executive is
merely a branch of the political machine. At tho famous University of
Padua Mr. Gibson was welcomed by
the director in full Fascist uniform.
In Poland the students take a deep
interest in the politics of the country,
so much so that violence is sometimes
resorted to. The speaker concluded
by stating that he found Spain the
most interesting country in his travels. However, when a bomb exploded a short distance from where he
was staying he felt rather uncomfortable, although the natives of the city
seemed quite unperturbed.

solution of those problems.
While the National Liberal Party
has officially recognized this rally,
it has been organized, and its sessions
will be conducted and addressed only
by the young men and women par
tlclpating, An official welcome will
be given by the Mayor, and a distinguished speaker from thc East wifl
address the dinner Tuesday evening.
All Liberal-minded young men and
women may attend by application to
the Steering Committee—with a registration fee of $1.25 for Monday evening sessions and the Tuesday dinner
and dance, or $2.50 for complete sessions, Including the dinner and dance.

It seems that there la an age-old
tradition among senior basketball
players that they be known, at least
to their team mates, by nicknames.
Thla year's team la no exception.
Now with the playoffs coming on
and a championship team to encourage, this department th'nks it absolutely essential for every student fan
to have a yelling knowledge of these
abbreviated appendages. This would
modify such formality as "Come on
Jimmy" to "Come on 'Bugs'", and
so on . With this idea in mind then,
we herewith publish the results of
much snooping and pry.'ng around
sweat-smelling strip rooms.
Most well - known nicknames, of
course, are those of Jimmy Bardsley and Art. Willoughby who are
"Bugs" and "Burp" respectively. Then
there is Ralph "Hunk" Henderson
and Bill "Ducky-Wucky" Swan.
George Pringle is "Joe" Dick Wright
is "Stud" and Tommy Mansfield is
"Bones." The freshmen on the team
are not without theirs. Jim Osborne
answers to the call of "Foozzy" and
Jack Ross to "Herdrocki"
that never touched the hoop. Play
was fast and it looked much like the
game of the year. Macdonell evened
it up on a nice effort under the basket. Pringle then scored two beauties, followed by "Burp" Wtlliughby.
This made the score 8-2 and Province
called time out.
