*   IN AN EFFORT to raise money for the Red Cross, the
Players' Club is presenting the latest dramatic effort of
Jabez, a former pubster, otherwise known as Eric Nicol, in
the auditorium at noon on Tuesday, January 26.
_ The presentation, which will be
under the sponsorship of the War

the Red Cross mhich will be added
to the proceeds from the Ball itself.
Phil Nimmons opened the program with a Hawaiian number,
and MC Russ Palmer, a former
Varsity pep meet man, took over
from there, attempting to explain
the reason for the program. -At
this point Jack Ferry broke in with
an announcement that the university would close over the week-end,
and the audience went noisily
nuts.
Doreen Dougan then introduced
the Queens who were running for
election as Queen of the Ball, and
the men went wild all over again.
Miss Dougan gave a running commentary on the frocks worn by the
nominees.

The feature attraction, 12 luscious
hula chorines then weaved and
wiggled onto the stage, and went
through a Hawaiian dance, then

Ferry then had three numbers
drawn from a hat corresponding to
seat numbers, and raffled off
prizes. The highlight of the draw
was the yell from the balcony, left
out of tho draw, "How about the

lower floor: "To hell with the Balcony I"
INCIDENTALS
Thc program was concluded with
two sweet and hot numbers by
Phil Nimmons, featuring solo's by
Jimmy McCullough on the trombone, Doug Parker, piano; George
Ricfel, drums; Phil Nimmons,
clarinet; and Lee Foster, bass, and
electric guitar.
• JOHN CARSON remains at
the helm of the War Aid Council despite his urgent plea that a
new president be chosen Ho resigned as president in tho fall
term but, because of thc poor turn
out to the council meetings, it was
nearly impossible to elect a new
one.
The council will meet later In
the Double Committee Room It
is hoped that there will be sufficient number there to elect a new
president and to formulate a definite plan for the spring term.
In addition to thc Red Cross Ball,
the council Is planning a "Mile of
Pennies" Drive,, tho Waiver Campaign and probably a drive to sign
up blood donors. Tentative plana
have also been laid for ISS Week
which will start on March 1.
It la hoped that the "Milo of
Pennies" Drive will provide enough
money to complete the purchase
of the ambulance promised to the
Red Crosa before Christmas.
Returning
Students
Well Paid
• CUP WIRE — President Cody
of thc University of Toronto
announced yesterday that students
returning to finish interrupted
courses after more than eight
months of military service will receive generous payments for tho
period of academic training cqoal
to service pay,
Other prominent Thespians appearing are John Powell, Ronald
Heal, Alan Alnsworth, and numerous extras.
The author of this masterpiece
is himself In the RCAF, and it is
doubtful whether nls fertile pen—
or, more correctly, typewriter—will
produce any more epics for tho
duration.
This* last souvenir, however, was
presented to servicemen at various
times by the Players' Club, last
term and met with an enthusiastic
reception.
Admission will be 10c, all proceeds to be turned over to the Red

True Education
EDITOR'S NOTE: The following is an
extract from a speech by Wendell Will-
kie, delivered at Duke University this
delivered the speech at Duke University this
week and we reprint it here because we
feel that it provides food for thought for the
many people who have seen fit to attack the
liberal arts courses in the war years. The
extract is reprinted from the Washington
Daily.
"I think it can be stated as almost an
historical truism that the greatest civilizations of history have been the best educated
civilizations, And when I speak of education in this sense I do not have in mind what
so many today claim as education, namely,
special training to do particular jobs . . .'
None of these specialties constitute true education.
"I am speaking of education for its own
sake: to know for the sheer joy of understanding; to speculate, to analyze, to compare, and to imagine.
"People —- some .of them in very high
places—have openly disparaged the liberal
arts. You are told that they are of little
help to a man in earning his living or in
making a contribution to his fellowmen.
The thing to do, you are told, is to get
trained; learn an occupation; make yourself
proficient in some trade or profession. The
llboral arts, we are told, are luxuries. At
best you should fit thorn into your leisure
tlmo. They aro more decorations upon tho
stornor pattern of Ufo which must bo lived
in action and by the application of skills.
When such arguments gain acceptance that
is the end of us as a civilized nation.
"In fact, so important are the liberal arts
for our future civilization that I feel that
education in them should be as much a part
of our war planning as the more obviously
needed technical training.
"This is a war for freedom—freedom
here and freedom elsewhere. But if we are
to risk our lives for freedom, we must at
the same time do aU we can to preserve the
deep springs from which it flows. Recently
we have been prone to think of freedom in
purely economic terms. It is true that a man
cannot be free unless he has a job and a
decent income. But this job and this income
are not the sources of his freedom. They
only implement it.
"Freedom is of the mind. Freedom is in
that library of yours, around which this
campus is built. When you range back and
forth through the centuries, when you weigh
the utterances of some great thinker or absorb the meaning of some great composition,
in painting or music or poetry; when you
live these things within yourself and measure yourself against them — only then do
you become an initiate in the world of the
free.
"The study and practice of sound economics is indispensable to a successful solution of the peace. And yet even sound
economics cannot define tho aim of the
peace, nor the aim of the war. To discover
that aim we must go deeper. We must establish beyond any doubt the equality of
man.
"And we shall find this equality; not in
the different talents which we severally
possess, nor in the different incomes which
wo severally earn, but in tho great fran-
chiso of tho mind, tlio universal franchise,
which is bounded neither by color, nor by
creed, nor by social status. Open the books,
if you wish to be free.
"Now, in the midst of war, I give you as
war aims the perpetuation of this university, your right to attend it, and the certainty that your children, if they so wish
it, can follow in your steps."
Issue 25
The editor and staff of the UBYSSEY
regret that the student body will be put
to a great deal of inconvenience to obtain this
issue of their favorite newspaper. Every
effort is being made to get the issue to convenient points about the city so that under-
grads ma ybe able to receive it.
We feet that, an issue of the UBYSSEY
will serve a definite purpose, insofar as the
shut-down at Varsity will naturally cause a
great amount of confusion, it is to help abate
this that we have gone to press. We are
carrying as far as possible all the latest news
as to what will close, when it will open and
how it will effect the students.
We would like to thank down-town papers and radio stations for their kindness
in donating space and time to announce our
plans for this issue. We would like also to
thank the Red Cross Ball committee for permitting us to distribute these at the func
tion, and to the proprietors of the Snow
White Lunch at Alma and Sasamat for the
same reason.
It is our hope that the greater part ofthe
student body will receive a copy of this issue.
Wo would suggest that those students who'
aro able to gain access to the papers take
along a few copies and give them to friends
who have not been able to get to the centres where they are being issued.
Some people have already told us that
they think wo aro damn well silly to try
and put the UBYSSEY out under such adverse conditions. We do not think so. The
object of tho UBYSSEY is to supply, at all
times a news service to tho student body,
and we feel that it is needed now more than
ever. We feel that the stduents will back
our stand.
We hope you enjoy your unexpected
holiday.
LETTERS TO
THE EDITOR
Dear Sir:
"Hugh Ritchie announced today
that corsages will definitely be
permitted at tho Red Cross Ball."
Corsages at the Red Cross Ball are
about the stupidest and most selfish thing I have heard. Not only
is it on unnecessary expense at any
dance in wartime, but also when
the proceeds from tho Ball aro to
go for the Red Cross it simply defeats tho purpose of the ball altogether.
When corsages in these days cost
at least 51.50 a throw and about 300
couples attend the dance this represents approximately $400, which
will bo dumped in the laps of the
local florists instead of swelling
tho coffers of the Red Cross.
Who needs tho money most—the
Red Cross or the florists? Is the
committee in charge looking out for
tho business interests of this city
or is it trying to make the Ball a
success for the Univeristy and for
tho Red Cross?
We are now in the fourth year of
tho war, and this is the third ball
of this kind. When corsages have
not only been banned at previous
Red Cross Balls, but also at all
dances for the past two years, why
.should we now start wearing them
again? Why, if we must spend the
money, can't we have ribbons
which would cost possibly 30 cents
apiece, sell them for 75 cents or
|1.00, and put the profit into the
held?
fund for which the ball is being
It is not fair to the University,
to the students, or to tho Red
Cross to permit this money to be
spent on flowers which servo no
genuine purpose anyway. Very
few girls these days of war give a
damn whether they have flowers
or not—they usually spoil the effect of a dress in any case.
Moreover there will probably be
a great many outsiders at the Ball.
Will it look well to these people
to see money being spent unnecessarily at a benefit danoo? We are
always beefing about "down-town
opinion"—if we are so afraid of it
wo should stop it at its source instead of giving people outside tho
University very good reason to
criticize us.
At a ball which is primarily to
raise money to give to tho Red
Cross it would seem only sensible
if tho committee set out to raise
as much money as possible and to
spend as little as possible.
If the students on this campus
had any spunk the girls would refuse to wear flowers and the boys
would refuse to buy them. But, as
usual, everyone will bo apathetic
about the whole thing and go
ahead and spend the money, be
criticized for it, and- then go
around saying they ore unfairly
treated.

# American
Fad-Sh ions
By GYPSY JACKLIN
• HAVE YOU ever had a pair of
flatties that were a perfect fit,
but hard to keep on? This uncomfortable feature Is especially
true of shoes that don't lace up.
American shoe designers havo
found n very effective solution to
the problem, and the newest flatties sold in tho States are lined
with suedo. Ankle socks stick to
this rough surface, so your feet
can't "fall out".
• BUTTER  IS rationed,  on the
Southern   Pacific  trains,   now.
Ono pat is allowed, per person,
per meal. Lost anyone forget the
reason for this, each pat boars a
patriotic inscription, such as "Remember Pearl Harbour", "Keep
'Em Flying", or "Buy a Bond".
• EVEN IF YOU are a teetotaler,
I'm -sure  you  would love the
latest thing in compacts, as featured in the States. Tho compact is
quite large, and square, with an
enameled champaign glass on top,
from which is rising bubbles, ,and
pink elephants.
• LAST WEEK I published an
item   describing   the   cooling
qualities of a now type of cologne.
In view of the weather, (brrrrr!)
I hereby retract the statement (!)
in favour of a much happier
thought . . . fluffy white angora
fur mittens, with darling oar-muff'*
to match, worn by a pretty UBC
co-od.
• WE KNOW one UBC freshette
who should remain cool, calm
ond collected in case of air raid;
she wears a white kerchief, which
is decorated with colourful air
raid instructions!
• PRACTICAL for service men,
or, in fact anyone at all, is tho
newest photograph album, which
comes from tho States. It is a
leather loose-leaf book, no bigger
than a wallet. Each "page" Is a
cellophane envelope, in which two
pictures can bo placed back to
back, so that one shows on each
side.   Snappy?
• PATRIOTIC earrings are a
new fad-shion which originated in Yuma, Arizona. The earrings aro made of red white and
blue brilliants, and are in tho form
of a V, for victory.
• WHITE COLLARS and "glamour" necklaces seem to be vie-
ing for popularity, these days, for
wearing with sweaters. The girls
on this campus favour embroidered initials or monograms on their
collars, but in Valhalla, New York,
flowers with button centers and
embroidered petals ore preferred.

Coward's fast moving light

The play was chosen after much
deliberation on the part of play
readers.
Its choice represents a new step
for the Players' Club. Aa a modern play, it is hailed by many
critics as Noel Coward's best comedy. It is also regarded as the
most difficult to produce.
In prefacing the play, Noel Coward wrote: "To begin with, it has

To outside parties the tariff will
be $1.25 for a single person, or
|2.25 for a couple. It is planned
to have a banquet to start with,
and then the class of '43 will retire to the main lounge for dancing.

Dal Richards To Play
Here As Pass Feature
•   RICHARDS' RHYTHMS from the Panorama Roof will
tantalize UBC students for a brief hour, Friday, January
29, at 12:30.
A strange show is to be presented as a special feature of the
Pass System. Dal Richards and
his 11-piece orchestra will be a
welcome attraction. Vocalists,
Bob Reid and Beryl Bedenne add
his talent to the show.
Questioned about other Pass
Features to come, Bill Mercer, of
tho L.S.E., said that though attempts have been made to get
Hilker Attractions such as Richard Crooks or Marian Anderson,
there is difficulty met by thq
restrictions of the artists in having to forward their complete
schedules to Chicago before arriving here, Lionel Hampden
was fined $500 for failing to do
so. Mercer expressed regrets,
particularly since Hampden had
turned the profits from the Pep-
Meet over to the Red Cross.
# Shopping
with Mary Ann
• IF YOU HAVE been looking
for a swell place to eat after
shows and dances and stuff, there's
a neat little cafe at the corner of
Broadway and OranviUe called the
Ship Shape Inn. A cute blond
Alpha Phi is proudly displaying
a Zete pin these days, but it doesn't seem to come from any man
on this campus, and the lad she's
going to the Red Cross with still
has his pin intact. She just laughs
when asked about it. Food ia
wonderful at any time, but it is
particularly wonderful at the Ship
Shape Inn. Why not drop in there
after the Red Cross tonight and
try some of their tempting dishes.
And another advantage of this
cosy little place is that it stays
open all night, so no matter how
late you are you can still eat.

• IF YOU HAPPEN to be going
informal to the Red Cross Ball
tonight, you are sure to want a
new pair of shoes for the occasion
Rae-son, 608 Granville St., hai
everything. In this line that your
little heart could desire. Another
pin planting on the campus Is the
P. K. Sigma to a cute little gal
that was out here last year. She's
working this year In a bank and
the boy-friend (a popular bus-
driver) drops her right off at her
door on her way home in tho
evening. Suede, gaberdine and
calf are all popular materials for
shoes this winter. You'll love the
styles they have whether you go
to the Mezzanine, Main or Clever
Floor.

• THERE'S   NOTHING   like   n
lovely fur coat to keep warm
in these days so why not trot down
to thc New York Fur Co. at 791
West Georgia st., and see their
line-up of georgeous and glamorous yet warm and useful coats and
lwraps. Remember the Phi Kap Pi
and Kap Sig that made New Year's
resolutions not to take out the
same girl again this ycar? Well it
was thc Phi Kap that broke his
resolution and he intends to keep
it after the Ball tonight. Mayba
he thinks he's getting in a rut or
something. These few unexpected
holidays arc just the time that
you've been waiting for to get
down-town and look over the fur
set-up, so why not take advantage
of them and Iook over the beautiful muskrat, beaver, squirrel and
all kinds of other furs?

e BELIEVE IT or not Spring
will be here before you know
it and you will be wanting a new
spring outfit. Plant's ot 554 Granville st., suggest that you get your
spring things early if you want to
get the best quality. Right now,
Plant's have a good stock of suits
and casual coats in pure wool and
in all the gay spring colours. Why
dtfl the Kappa Sig give his girl
friend a $95.00 set of dishes tor
Christmas—was it for her hope
chest? These suits and coats are
styled just right for the UBC co-ed
so get yours while the getting is
good. She didn't have a sleigh, so
a tall dark sophomore Rot out her
mother's ironing board the other
night. She says it didn't work
very well though.
At present plans are being made
to have versatile Alex Templeton,
blind pianist and comedian for a
noon-hour pass feature some time
in February.
COTC Work
Lauded At
Conference
• COLONEL T. L. RAL-
ston, the Minister of Defense, expressed deep appreciation for the work the CO
TC was doing in supplying
officers for the Army, at the
COTC conference held in Ottawa recently, which Colonel
G. M. Shrum attended.
Colonel Shrum said that all the
men of officer material at the University would be taken into the
Army at the end of the term.
Many men who would have made
good officers have joined the Air
Force subsequently all potential
officers will be given training immediately after the break-up of
the camp at Vernon.
Some men will be sent to Gordon Head, some will be sent to the
basic training centre at Vernon,
and others will be trained at the
University under regular Army
instructoral. Colonel Shrum emphasized that there would be no
delay in training the men at the
end of the term.
MORE OFFICERS
Quoting Colonel Ralston, Colonel
Shrum said that more officers are
needed in this war, because of the
smaller formations, the variety and
power of weapons, and the rapidity
in which they are used.
Commenting on the newly-formed Canadian Army Training Corps,
Colonel Shrum said that all applicants must have their Senior Metric or first-year university standing. They would be taught mathematics, physics, and drafting. They
would  be sworn Into the army,

the General Hospital for emergency treatment. He Is now at
home, and has recovered from the
shock, but It Is not yet known
how badly his arm and hand were
injured, as it takls several days
before the effects of the acid can
be ascertained.
Grad Pics
Deadline
Postponed
• BECAUSE of the recent transportation difficulties, the final
day, of taking graduates' pictures
has been postponed to next Monday, January 25.
After this date, graduating students who have not had their
pictures taken will either be left
out of the graduation Issue or an
earlier picture of them put in.
Recent confusion has arisen over
just who should have their picture*
taken. Any student graduating in
April 1943 in any faculty should
have their pictures taken in gown
and hood at Artona Studios oa or

• THIS STORY CONCERNINFG the basketball game
apparently is no good because there will not be any
University today, but because we are short of copy, as you
can see, we are running it to fill up the space.
• MANAGER HOWARD J. "SHADOW" ShadweU of the
present High Flying Varsity Blue and Gold Thunderbird Senior A Basketball Team, announced that he has
completed arrangements for the Army quintet from Vancouver Island to play here today at noon in the Campus
gymnasium.
This contest is a return engage-	
ment of the tilt that our Senior ——"^~—-——-—-—._____
squad played during the Christmas
holidays. At that game the Ack
Ack outfit proved the superior aggregation and had no trouble in
downing the Thunderbirds.
AVENGE ARMY
This Ume, though, the students
are out to avenge Ifie sore spot
in their playing career and will
throw all their strength into the
Island outfit.
The army quintet has a number
of well known players on their
lineup and they will give the students plenty of stiff and tough and
fast and rough and thrilling, fan-
pleasing competition. Well they
had better, is all that I can say.
FORMER DOMINOES
Anyhoo, getting back to the
team, they have Ritchie Nicol and
Art Chapman from the Dominion
Champion Victoria Dominoes of
last season. The Dominoes are
famous friends of the Campus
basketball fans for their gentleman-like play and sportsmanship
on the maple court.
In addition they have Doug
Peden, brother of the famous
Torchy Peden of six-day bicycle
riding fame. Torchy ls one of the
most famous of the wheeled specialists and everyone who is a follower of the sport will remember
his name.
OUT OF STYLE
But at the present moment six-
day bike riding has gone out ot
style, because of the war or something, so he is not riding at the
present moment. So all of you
fans should come out and see this
famous brother of the famous
Torchy Peden. Doug by the way,
did a bit of riding himself and
also played a bit of professional
baseball in some professional baseball league In the United States

Bowling
Started
t THE SORORITY 5-Pin Bowling League got away in fine
style last Monday afternoon up at
the De Luxe Bowling Centre, with
the eight chapters well represented.
Alpha Gamma Delta registered
a clean sweep over Kappa Alpha

odd game from Gamma Phi Beta,
Delta Gamma made it a two to

Kappa Kappa Gamma made It two
out of three over Alpha Delta Pi.
DOREEN DOUGAN TOPS
Doreen Dougan of Alpha Gams
topped individual honors both
ways with a series of 458 and high
string of 210. Joan "Strike" Morris
of the same team was runner-up

parade were Barbara Hibbert of
A.D. Pi with 419, Betty Beaumont
of A. O. Pi with 412, Trudy Living-
stone of Gamma Phi with 404, and
Pat Cunningham of Kappa with
401.

Baseball Leagues which is run by
Judge Landls or is It Judge William L. Braham?
So be sure and come to the
game today at noon and see our
heroes, Sandy Robertson, Art Still-
well, Paddy Wescott, Art Barton,
Art Johnson, Ole Bakken, Harry
Franklin, Bruce Yorke and Gordlo
Sykes. There is a rumour going
around that Queenle Wayward will
make an appearance also but I
should warn you girls that he
might be laid up. By the way 1
just remember that Qutjenie has
the mumps, or has he?
Anyway the game is at noon today.  It is a pas3 feature. I think.

• DUE TO transportation conditions, the table tennis tournament was postponed last Wednesday night. Players were greatly
disappointed but under the conditions It was impossible to start tho
game.
A tentative date has not been
set yet and it probably will be
left till after traffic conditions become better. When the play docs
go on, remember folks that the
lads will have had much more
time to practice and accordingly
will be that much more in true
form. Now, longer tlmo In which
to practice means that better play
Is m the offing and the better the
play the better it is to watch. And
the more people Viere are to watch
the tournament, the better the fellows will feel like playing, and tho
better they play, (hey, how long
does this go on?).
Well, without a doubt, these
tournaments are going to be good,
and if you do not believe us you
had better come around and see
for yourself when the time come3.
