Elopment Scandal
Stacks Now Open To All
This year tho university will close
on a sad note. In the General Hospital of this city the young and glamorous Mrs. Don Fizzington lies near
the point of death. Bearnard Brynelson, new president of the Alma Mater Society, is the hero of the hour
but his triumph has sombre tone. Will
the beautiful young woman in Ward
X pass into the great beyond?
Heroic Bernie
Leaving his stock shortly after midnight Wednesday, March 13, Brynelson hurried to the main entrance of
the library to find the doors locked.
There vas no alternative but to spend
the night in the library but Bomie
knew that his aged mother was waiting for him by the fireside of their
humble home. He could not disappoint her. He must get out. A careful search of the premises revealed
that a small door leading from tho
rear of the building could be easily
Just as the door clicked behind him
a deep moan rent tho stillness of tho
inky night. There was a "Farewell
Don, you have broken my heart."
Then a splash and all was quiet.
Lily Pond Scene of Tragedy
It wasn't for nothing that the young
man had been elected president of
his Alma Mater, instantly his keen
intellect told him that the gruesome
sound came from the front of the library. A moment later he was standing on the brink of the lily pond.
There in the centre of the murky
water a fair fu.-m rose to the surface
to di.sappdar'*once more into the black
depths as the white filmy garments
floated about it. In an instance thc
Scienceman was in the water. A few
powerful strokes and the girl was in
his arms and they had regained tho
H^s colls for help brought
Pucas to the scene. Today the young
wife, broken ."tu1 ill, lies at death's
door in Ward X, general hospital.
Constable Orchard in his official
capacity, immediately commenced investigation. At first it seemed that
Mrs. Fizzington had become temporarily insane from anxiety for her
husband who the believed to be over
Further investigation shook the
univereity anew with sorrow. It was
reveal-el today that when university
authorities sought to break the news
of the tragedy to Mr. Fizzington, the
popular bearded gentleman could not
be found. Dean Suzzanan becoming
alarmed, searched tho house' after
forcing an ■ entrap ee through the basement. While he was still in the house
the phone rang. On answering it he
heard tho anJcious voice of Mr. Corn
demanding th: whereabouts of his
private secretary, Miss Penderson,
who had disappeared from her home
earlier in the evening. The young
lady carried with her a small overnight bag an-I her family became
alarmed when she didn't return home.
A search of her room revealed a
crumpled letter signed "Your clear
Don" and beseeching Miss Penderson
to elope with him.
Cad Identified
A hurried canvas of officials of the
university under the name of Don
quickly eliminated Professor Don
Javidson, Dr. D. Jown of Union College, Professor Don Jell, Don Jor-
nish, Don Jogan, and D. Jould. Only
Don Fizzington remained. The still
white form in the General Hospital
told the rest of the tale.
Mrs. Fizzington returning home from
an early show of David Copperfield,
found her husband hurriedly packing. In a word he had told her that
the beautiful Miss Penderson had won
his love, that he could not live without her.
Traced to Bellingham
A few minutes later he was gone.
Miss Penderson is said to have been
suffering of late from a nervous disorder,  overwork  in  noisy surround-

Brynelson Gets Huge
With one of the biggest majorities

up a vote of 533, nearly three times
the vote of his nearest opponent, Cam
Immediately the result was announced, the eleven star reporters of
the ''Ubyssey" burned up tho ground
in an epie dance toward the Engineering building. There they found the
new president, sitting at a drafting
table, surrounded by ream upon ream
of paper, upoi which were scrawled
cabalistic calculations. Around him
sat rows of red sweatered engineers,
each with the regulation forty steins
in front of him.

The sonorous voice ceased. Each
engineer raised a stein in jubilation
and drained it to the last drop. But
the great sage was again absorbed
in his calculations. He seemed sublimely oblivious of all around him.
It was inexplicable. Of course, there
were forty empty steins beside him,
but his apparent lack of interest in
his surroundings seemed merely part
of the sage's philosophical serenity.
And so we left him, thinking
mighty  thoughts.
Brilliant suggestions for improvements on the Campus were heard
when Council met, in customary dis-
sapated style, Monday night. Following the dinner supplied by the Caf.,
the members retired to the Council
room (laden with olives and cake)
and there commenced business.
Handsome Walter Kennedy, who
has so ably guided the Men's Undergraduates Society in the past year,
made a last cesperate stand for the
superiority of the male sex on this
Down With the Women's Union
The question cf support from thc
A.M.S. in collecting funds for the
Women's Union Building arose. Said
Walter Kennedy--"Wo will only have
a small corner in the Building. We
won't have anything to say in running it. Wii it's tho use of the men
raising money? I vote for a Men's
Union Building" (here several pitti-
ful puns were made—not suitable to
thc high tone of the Ubyssey),
Publications Board Abused
The artistic endeavours cf the Publications Board in unconvential murals and broken dishes came in for
high censor from Council. Murray
Mather, president, decried the tcm-
pcrmcntal outpourings of the intelligentsia on thc Campus as being
indecent and defiling.
John Sumner, president of thc
L.S.E., whoie-heartcdly supported
the president's opinions, "it is utterly ridiculous this defacing the Pub
Office with obscene drawings," said
the only man who stands for Literature and Science on the otherwise
materialistic Council.
" 'Arf a mo'," said Walter Kennedy,
"Why not have the Pub pay for the
damage." At this point James Malkin, RothschieH of thc Campus, ar-
rose in defence of Art, "We cannot do
this thing," lie cried. But the motion
was lost—the Publications Board will
have to pay.
Then for two long and heated hours
Council debated the question, "Should
the debating team make Council pay
for tea on the Seattle trip?" The
arguments raged until Fred Bolton,
Men's Athletic Representative, spoke
up, "These men had to eat! Would
you rather they had tea or dinner?''
"Oh, I see," said Murray Mather,
"I'd forgotten that Englishmen call
simper, tea. We'll pass the budget."
Basketball Heroes Found To Be
Freddy Bolton climaxed the meeting with a pathetic plea for members
of the basketball team, or rather for
the member's friends and associates.
"If you sit too near a member of the
Basketball Club," he said, "when he
is clad in his strip—well, it's not very
comfortable. I vote a sum of ten
dollars for cleaning the basketball
Council symprthetically passed the
The weekly lecture of the Vancouver Institute will be given on Saturday evening at 8:15 In Room 100, the
Arts Building of the University of
British Columbia The speaker will
be' Dr. H. M. Cassidy, the Provincial
Director of Social Welfare, and the
subject "Some Trends in Social Insurance."
Side by side with the development
of mechanical and electrical contrivances during the last century that
have multiplied industrial efficiency
and thereby reduced drudgery and
expanded leisure, there has been a
parallel devolpmcnt in the extension
and improvement of social relations.
There is an increasing, and almost
general, recognition that misfortunes
which in the pa>t have been regarded
as purely personal, should be distributed over, and borne by, society at
large. Fifty years ago unemployment
was a purely personal problem: to*
day it is a charge upon the state. In
England, medical attention is now a
recognized department of the work
of government, and Canada is rapidly approaching the time when legislation will make similar provision.
The recent appointment of Dr. Cassidy is an indication of this tendency
in British Columbia and is typcal
of the modern enlargement of the
sphere of government, and ts assumption of authority and responsibility
in social directions.
Dr. Cassidy is a graduate of the
University of British Columbia, who
has pursued with distinction his studies in other institutions. He is highly
regarded by sociologists of authority,
and his lecture on Saturday is being
anticipated  with   keen  interest.
Mr. George E. Winter, the President of the Institute, will take the
chair at 8:15. Thc B.C. Electric Railway provides buses at Sasamat street
which go directly to the University
and wait there until the close of the
lecture. All Institute lectures are free
to the public.

At the University of "Atchewan"
eleven professors have revolted against
student control. They have locked
themselves up in the faculty room,
and are prepared to stay there until
their demands are met.
As we reported in this column a
week ago, the students at this college recently organized a vigilantes
committee to blacklist professors who
were not fair to their classes/
In an issue of the "Keaf," the names
of eleven professors were given, along
with the information that these men
were not treating students in a fair
way. The professors asked the paper
to retract the statement, but this was
The next move was the voluntary
confinement of the eleven members
of the faculty. They took food and
amunition enough for a week, and
are intending to remain in isolation
until the paper retracts the statements.
This action is causing minor disturbances on the campus. A bomb
was thrown into the office of the
Keaf, causing the death of two assistant editors. Another bomb was
hurled at th? editor when he was
eating his lunch at a nearby hot-dog
stand. No was done—only
the editor being killed,
It will be interesting to follow the
revolt of the professors, inasmuch aa
the last stand of student government
is at stake.

Life is not a bowl of cherries. It is mainly
exams. For sixteen years many of us have been
crushed under their dreadful yoke. And now
again they say we must suffer. Shall our Manhood (or womanhood) be again insulted. No!
No! A thousand times No! Remember our
glorious pioneer ancestors! For days they struggled over parched plains to freedom. Are we
free? No, we are bound in the shackles of convention. Toss them aside. Wander forth into
the balmy airs free of civilization. The blue
blood of heroes flows through our viens but we
are trodden as slaves under the dust of professors' boots. Arise brothers! Let us raise the
war cry "Freedom or Death" Canadian youth
is not dead it is merely dormant. We are not
born for nothing, no indeed we are not. Honor
your father and your mother if you can.
Meanwhile best luck in the approaching
mental contests.
Without a doubt the most pressing need
of this campus at the present time is the erection of a permanent reinforced concrete building to house the one function which justifies
the existence of the University of British Col-
umbia-namely, the Ubyssey.
Is it not an atrocity that hundreds of thousands of dollars should be spent on the construction of a library to provide a shelter where
students may read their Ubysseys-when the
very reason for maintaining a library is compelled to cast its pearls of wisdom from a dinky, poky, dirty little hole in a corner of the
Auditorim? One of the most appalling tragedies of our modern educational system is the
spectacle of the sprouting genius of Canadian
youth heroically struggling to burst the bonds
of confinement imposed upon it by these de
plorably cramped quarters. The noble purpose
In their eyes-the innocence and purity of their
soaring spirits-ah, how could a country which
pretends to culture and refinement treat them
The answer is simple and inevitable. A building must and will be brought to completion
The top floor will contain the private suite of
the editor-in-chief, with a library where he can
carry on his intensive researches into current
social and political developments on the cam
pus. This should also contain a shower bath
and a fire escape.
The Campus Crab should have his sanctuary on the roof in the form of a dome-shaped
pill box bristling with machine guns and antiaircraft guns to protect him from the misguided
bue well meaning attacks of such creatures as
Council members. This should moreover be
constructed so that the ocupant would be unable to get out.
The members of the editorial staff should
each be provided with a private office complete
with a chesterfield, a radio and a box of chocolates. And connected with these offices there
should be a recreation room to which members
could retire to indulge in their favorite pastime
of smashing cups and saucers.
And for the safety of the editorial staff and
of students in general the reporters should be

Another Blasted Hope
It is with deep disappointment that I see
the Student League, that promising collection
of young radicals, is becoming just as ineffectual, just as visionary, and just as ignorant of
realities as the other moribund mutual admiration societies that stifle all progress on the
It is to be expected that immature enthusiasts should occasionally embark on unprofitable ventures, but why choose the ultimate
It is also to be expected that they should
occasionally depart from the paths of strict
logic, but why brandish absurd fallacies in the
face of the public?
And it must, in spite of the possibility of
wounding the feelings of our parlour pinks, be
confessed that they are doing both these things
in opposing the visit of the "Karlshrue" to
Vancouver on the grounds that they are "taking a stand" against Hitler's oppression of the
Germans and at the same time "consolidating
opinion" at home.
A Little Common-sense
The fact of the matter is that hostile demonstrations against the Nazi navy will be "taking
a stand" that will react directly and forcibly
against any party in Germany which it is intended to benefit, as anyone with the faintest
conception of the mentality of a dictator will
realize at once.
The second violation of commonsense lies
in the belief that such action will "consolidate
opinion against reaction at home." This statement cuts deeper, and shows that the Student
League have obsessed themselves with catchwords and economic theory, and like so many
other radicals, have lost their sense of proportion, forgetting that there is such a thing as
human nature.
The great majority of Canadians at present
abhor the manifestations of Nazism and Fascism in Europe. We pride ourselves that we
are morally and spiritually above such foulness, and lean heavily toward the side of Socialism. But if the Student League and their
fellow hare-brained asses show that they are
just as capable of, and as much inclined toward rowdyism and bad manners as any of
their enemies, they will lose a large proportion
of the support and sympathy they now merit.
It will be a shame to ourselves, not to the
Nazis, if we exceed the bounds of international
courtesy. We can be hostile, but we do not
need to be impolite.
And We'll Never, Never Meet Again - - -
Having got that off my mind, it is now my
pleasant duty to bid you all farewell. The
Campus Crab vanishes forever out of your glad
young lives with this issue.
It is now some fifteen months since I first
appeared in these chaste pages, through which
I have scattered desolation and woe in suitable
quantities for the benefit of your embryonic

it has become very boring indeed, and I am
happy to escape the necessity of rehashing any

It would have been a different matter if
you had shown any initiative or gumption in
your mild transgressions, but that is the last
thing in the world to be expected on this cam
Unfortunately, you have proved yourselves
incapable of more serious faults than vulgar
ity, uncleanliness, stupidity, apathy and occasional petty thievery, distributed so evenly

Field Trip
Vancouverites residing in the vicinity of the Pacific Stages terminal
were aroused early last Saturday
morning by the shouted greetings and
yells of lusty Agriculturists as the
U.B.C. Farmers set out on their annual field trip to the Agassiz Experimental Farm.
On arrival, an argument of some
week's standing was settled when the
finals of the inter-department tug-of-
war were pulled. In two preliminaries, which were sudden death pulls
the Grads. were able to defeat the
combined A.H. and Poultry teams
while the Dairymen defeated the
Sophomores. In the Grand Final the
Dairymen vanquished the Grads. by
winning two straight pulls—the finest
pulls witnessed in the whole competition. After the tug-of-war the
usual tour of inspection and judging
competitions tock place—two classes
each of horses, sheep, dairy cattle
and swine fell below the critical gaze
of the budding judges. Members of
the Faculty were also calling on Lady
Luck in their efforts to win the
special trophy which is to be presented to the high Prof.
Thanks to thc kindness of Mr.
Hicks, Superintendent of the Farm,
copious quantititr of coffee and food
made their appearance at he conclusion of the judging competition. Congratulations Agassiz on preparing the
finest field trip in the last few years!

Editor,  Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
In reply to the letter of March 12
from the Student League of Canada,
I wish to clear up any misapprehension to which this letter may give
rise. The Student Christian Movement is not "Understood to be against
war and fascism." We, as a group,
are against war but we do not take
any political stand, for it has been
our policy firs: and last to take the
international viewpoint. Our attitude
has been understood by the Student
League ever since we both became
members on the Anti-War Council.
Other organizations made it a point
that they be understood by the Student League as against war, and not
any particular political system.
The Student League knew our attitude and haa deliberately included
us to seemingly uphold their whole
The Student Christian Movement
stands against the idea of war, but
we will not be dragged in on an antifascist stand. Many of us in the
movement feel that the money used
to entertain warships from other
countries as well as this one from
Germany could be used for a much
more constructive purpose, but why
pick on the "Karlsruhe"?
Yours truly,
» Jean M. Fraser,
Rep. of S.C.M. on Anti-War Council.

Hedda Gabler
Great Success
The Players Club this week ended
• controversy of several year's duration as to whether university students
are capable of presenting tragedy,
with their spring production of Ibsen's "Hedda Gabler." The artistic
understanding of the cast justified
their choice of vehicle this year.
"Hedda Gabler," the finest of modern tragedies, is austere and undec-
orated in its concentration of theme,
and ag such demands a complete unity of understanding among the players. It is not a play In which variety
can be achieved by one single player,
rather the group must work for the
glory of the whole.
In this respect the U.B.C. Players
provided an adequate cast. Hedda,
played by Eunice Alexander, from
one point of view, filled her role
magnificently. While she was present she completely dominated the
audience as well as the stage. Thisi
aspect of the churacter possibly overshadowed another aspect which might
have been developed a little  more

fully, Hedda as a woman of devasta
ting charm.   The two were not   ai
carefully blended aa they might have
Mrs. Elvsted was charmingly played
by Audrey Philips with a naturalness
rarely found ln such a young actress.
With a minimum of action she conveyed, as she should have, a woman
of poise and sensitivity.
The tendencies of the three men,
George Tesman, Judge Brack and Ei-
lert Lovborg, ss played by Stuart
Keate, Hugh Palmer and Bill Sargent,
to caricature the roles slightly, whether conscious or not, simplified the
problem around which the play was
constructed from the audience point
of view. Stuart Keate's interpretation of the literal Ingenuous husband
was particularly good In detail of
movement. Hugh Palmer as the
suave, cynical man of the world,
maintained his role with the greatest
consistency of the three.
Bill Sargent's part, as the emotional, highly-strung weakling, was well
done in the third act, if slightly over
done In the second.
The minor part of Miss Teaman, the
sentimental aunt, played by Marjorie
Griffin, was done with sweet good-
humor, a difficult part which might

May 1 congratulate you on a very

position for years.

Miss Zoe Browne-Clayton, Campus,
Dear Zoe:
This is my last opportunity to do
what I've wanted to do all year. That
is to tell you lhat I admire you more
than anyone eh? on the campus. You
have been the best Senior Editor the
Ubyssey has ever had. Your editorials are perfect, only a little less
perfect than your page make-up. I
don't know how the Ubyssey will get
on without you.
Love from,
Thursday's Senior Editor.

Dear, dear John:
Congratulations.    You  were  magnificent!

The purest form
In which tobacco
cm be smoked"
# Your friend* are smoking Sweet Caporal
Cigarettes because other smokers th*y know have
been so persistent in their sincere praise cf Sweet
Caporal'* delightful mildness and appealing flavour.
To produce Sweet Caporal quality, we buy only the
choicest tobaccos, we age this tabacco patiently,
as good wine is aged, for at least thirty months,
ana we let nature take its course in mellowing the
tobacco so that you will like it. In this way we
make sure that there can be no raw tobacco in
Sweet Caporals. Try a package of Sweet Caporals
foday—you, too, will say they are milder, cooler,
have often, but seldom did become a
little maudlin. Mary Moxon as the
fussy little maid, was quite adequate.
The touches of melodrama which
occasionally flawed the pure tragedy
of the play were regrettable, but except in a few instances, unavoidable.
It is unfortunate that the line "You
are in my power now," should convey to the piesent age of theatre
audiences a connotation of hill-billies.
The sincerity of the line Is uidubit-
able, and it would be presumptuous,
I suppose, to alter Ibsen's line which
was written when the phrase had a
more serious meaning.
In one or two instances, notably
the conclusion of the third act, with
the burning of the manuscript, the
melodrama could have been eliminated with a more restrained treatment.

The two Chapmans, Doug Peden and Red Martin are iron
men and usually play almost the full game without substitution.
The Blue Ribbons, who will meet Varsity tonight and tomorrow night in the first two games of the Senior A Championship of this province, are not by any means poor opponents for
the Varsity squad. The Victoria boys during the better part of
the past season have been playing their basketball games against
the American squads that played Varsity. Their record against
these opponents is more impressive than that of the students.
Just recently they defeated the Province team who had been
bolstered by the presence of Bob Osborne..
The games to be played here in Vancouver have to be
won by the local squad because the remainder are to be played
in Victoria on a strange floor. The students will nee a a two
game lead to hold the Blue Ribbons on their home stamping
ground. Tickets for the two games are going fast but there is
still some room for Varsity supporters. Treat yourself to the
best in local basketball circles and help the University team by
attending the two games.
