 STUDENT   WAR   BOARD   CONSIDERED
Universities Find
Centralization Plan
Is More Efficient
e FORMATION of an all-inclusive War Work Committee
to co-ordinate and direct all campus drives and activities
for furtherance of U.B.C.'s war effort has been discussed in
various quarters this week and may become a reality in the
immediate future.
One Man's
Opinion
BY ANDY  SNADDON
e AFTER READING accounts of war effort campaigns in American and Eastern Canadian colleges, and
then studying the situation
here at U.B.C, we have
reached the conclusion that
our effort presents the prettiest picture of student iner-
tla-tive that you could hope
to see.
At present the spear head of our
war effort, aa tar aa the atudent
body aa a whole la concerned, con-
alata of the almost pathetic attempt
of a few determined females to
extract dimes from other studenta
every Wedneaday. This la what we
call a "self-denial" day, and no
doubt It makea aome studenU feel
very noble.
Even this campaign la a stupidly organized affair. No tags are
handed out to those who do contribute, ao the aame atudenta are
pestered all day long and others
never  give a penny.
The spirit of the girls ls the
proper one, but surely they could
arrange to hand out some kind of
a' tag to those who do give to
the   weekly   collection.
COUNCIL FAILS
However, the fault is that of the
Students' Council. The mighty
councillors should have taken the
lead In an effort to produce ti
decent contribution to the war. Or
Is it possible that, wrapt up as they
are in the vital (to them) council
work of approving complimentary
pass lists to social functions, they
have not heard of the war?
We are informed that, at their
last meeting they discussed the
possibility of organizing a committee to direct a war effort, but
were unable to agree on the personnel   for  the   committee.
That Is great. The war Is two
years old, the session two months
old, and now the council is CONSIDERING the organization of a
committee.
Last year several good Ideas
were forwarded, some of them
acted on and then allowed to
lapse.
STILL CORSAGES
What happened to the Idea of
Red Cross ribbons instead of cor.
sages? Is lt posible that the sweet
young things of the campus could
not bear to make such a terrific
sacriflco as to give up their corsages. Do their flowers mean moro
to them than bombs for Berlin?
And why hold dances down
town In these times? We have
Brock Hall built by students foe-
student functions and It would bo
practical to have our dances here,
contributing the profits to some
worthy fund. But nol The cabaret
is the thing so let us carry on a
disgraceful war effort and pres-
serve   our  social   standing.
Last year students v/sra aaked
to waive their caution money to
the Red Cross. This was the poorest  Idea of  the lot.
CAUTION MONEY
In some of the faculties there
is little or no caution money left
at the end of the year, so thia
plan would not reach many students. Another thing against it i3
the fact that In many cases caution money belongs to the student's parents, who are paying the
freight while Junior seeks a higher learning. The parents pay into
the annual Red Cross drive and
then are expected to make the university look good by contributing
in   the   student's  name
If wo are to have a war effort
let it be the effort of the students
themselves. Let us give up some
of the flim-flam of college life and
make a i-espectublc contribution to
our   country's  war   effort.
Suppose the august councillors
do a little digging and organize
thnt committee. Then suppose the
committee sets an objective and
plans n campaign to reach it, then
perhaps some of thnt down town
criticism so feared by Varsity will
tone down.

No. 15
U.B.C. is badly In need of such
an organization as the results of
our various mediocre campaigns
so far this term have proven. Other
universities both in Canada and in
the United States have reaUzed
this fact months ago and have
placed their entire war efforts
under single heads with much success.
S.P.C. ACTIVE
The Social Problems Club waa
the Arst campus organization to
forward the Idea of this committee
and club membera are trying to
stir their fellow-student* to realise the Importance of auch an organization.
Exchange papera frem all uni-
versltloe tn Canada and aaveral In
tha Vnlted States received by the
Ubyaaey reveal that committees te
control all war serrloee ea their
campusaa have been eetabllahed In
many tnstaaeea.
Space permits us to name only
a few, but they will give atudenta
at UJB.C. a fair idea of what Is
vitally lacking here.
From the QUEEN'S JOURNAL,
Kingston Ont.; "The WAR AID
COMMTITEE of the A.M.S. announced at Ita laat meeting that
the objective of the Queen'a undergraduate war effort thla year
would be to ralea $4000 for government war aavlnga certlflcatea."
From the McOlLL DAILY. Montreal. Que.; "McGlU'a WAR COUNCIL haa divided Into, seven divisions In which aU clubs and societies on the campus will be represented, In an effort to secure close
co-operation among aU the undergraduate bodies towards the war
effort."
From the ACADIA ATHENAEUM, WolfvlUe, N.S.; "Work of
the students' WAR SERVICES
BOARD la to organize the atudenta' individual efforts and to
set definite objectives before them.
At present it is continuing last
year's blood typing program and
the   girls'   Red   Cross   work."
From the UNIVERSITY OF
WASHINGTON DAILY, Seattle,
Wash.; Numerous campaigns for
funds are being conducted by the
ASSOCIATED WAR SERVICES
committee of the U. of W. Among
these are the Seattle Defense Chest
Drive, students' war saving stamp
campaign   and  defense   dances."

Pub - Council
Clashes Next
Term*Maybe
O UNDER THE PRETEXT that
the Gym will not be available
this term, Council has again postponed the long-delayed clash between the Council and the Publications   Board.
This time the game Is definitely
put off until "sometime next
term". This postponement is, of
coxirsc, merely a cover-up of the
Dirty Nine to .ty and weaken th_
pub clurin''; the interim, and to
build up their own feeble resources.

Horn   Restored to   Office
After 25 Years
Bill Tansley who is retiring this week as curator of the
University Museum is shown here with Bill Myhill-Jones
and Spencer Wallace as he describes some of his exhibits for
the last time, after twenty-five years among the students.
"Old Bill" Says Goodbye
To The UmBmCm Museum
e TWENTY-FIVE YEARS is a long time to most people,
but to Bill Tansley, curator of the Burnett Museum in
the Library, his quarter- century service to the University
has seemed but an episode. Bill, a familiar figure to both
graduates and undergraduates alike, is 83 years old. He's
retiring now after 14 years in the museum and 11 years in
other branches of the University.
It won't seem the same without v_M._«Ha--_-__-____i
BUI, without his smile, without
his endless stories about the museum for which he cared so much.
BUI had almost become a fixture
on the campus, as much a part of
the University as the caf. But
he's gone now, and with him ho
takes much less than he gave to
the University of British Columbia.
Born In Stoke-on-Trent In 1859,
BUI started life as a lawyer's apprentice when only 12 years old,
later giving that up for an apprenticeship as a coach builder.
After four years of building
coaches, he went to work in hU
grandfather's   warehouse.
All theae, however, were temporary "flings" for his real Interest was drawing. He intended to
teach drawing for a profession and
even won a tutorship, but he came
down with influenza and the tutorship  went  to  someone   else.
Coming to Vancouver in 1904,
Bill took up sign decorating and in
1916 joined the janitor staff of tha
University.
He became a friend to every
student and many of those who.
Graduated never forgot him. Every
so often he receives letters from
formn students In Cambi-T..ge, Oxford,   Bristol,   and  even  Tokio.
In 1920 he was given 10 volumes
of the Library of Original Sources
by the students and in 1925 a gold
watch   and   chain.
Surrounded by his paintings,
curio:;, rate books (some darinc*
back to 1774) and his even rar]er
Ubysseys and Totems, Bill Intend
to spend his remaining years
quietly and would like to give a

A.M.S. Accountant
Returns To Brock
•    MR. HORN is coming home.
Once again the familiar face of Sutherland Horn, missing since last February from the A.M.S. office will be seen
behind the wicket beginning next week.
Students' Council unanimously _mmm___m_m_mm__m^^^^^^mm
accepted the application of Mr-
Horn at the meeting Monday night
to replace Mr. Arthur McKim as
A. M. S. accountant. Ha wlU re-
eume hla dutlea almost immediately.
Mr. Horn reigned from the poaltlon laat February for reasons
which at that time were withheld.
The Ubyaaey carried stories and
editorials in which charges of Incompetency were laid againat laat
year'a Studenta' Counoil. An Alma
Mater meeting followed at which
President Har.'y Lumsden and hla
colleagues attempted to defend
their policy, and the meeting ended with the atudent body calling
upon Council, to pursue "a more
vigoroua policy."
Now, however, It haa been definitely established that laat year'a
Council was to blame fo* Mr.
Horn's resignation. He had previously worked tor nine yeara with
Student's Councils but never until
laat year had conditions In the offlce been audi that he found he
could not carry on taking responsibility for financial and other matters coming under his jurisdiction.
Since the beginning of this term
necessary changes in the rules and
working of the A.M.S. office have
been made. A newly-organized advisory committee of the five past-
presidents of the A.M.S. and the
accountant has been set up, as an-
nouncd  In last week's  Ubyssey.
These innovations have been
made to guard against any possibility of last year's condition, and
it is on these grounds that Mr.
Horn has agreed to come back as
accountant to the Alma Mater
Society.

e YESTERDAY came the report
that Sgt.-Pllot Owen Fraser
Pickell, R.C.A.F.. waa klUed ln action last week. Pickell Is among
the flrst of the undergraduates of
this University to be lost In the
war.
Born ln Alberta In July 1918,
Pickell made his home ln Fort St.
John. He was a member of the
Delta Upsilon Fraternity.
After completing his fourth year
Science In the spring of 1940, Pickell joined the Air Force Immediately and arrived overseas several
months ago.
While at U.B.C, Pickell was
known as a good student and an
outstanding athlete. Plthtlng in the
middleweight division, he won the
lower mainland boxing championship and later was crowned thc
boxing champion of the Air Force
In his division.
Last spring Sgt.-Pilot Pickell received an honorary Big Block from
this University and also won the
distinction of being named the
most outstanding British Columbia
athlete  In  the  R.C.A.F.
Pre-Meds
See Film
On Blood
• OLD manuscripts, dating aa far
back aa 1048 and written in the
difficult ahorthand code of Samuel Pepya, advocating syrup of
angleworms for consumption, were
exhibited by Dr. C. B. Dolman at
the Monro Pre-Med dinner laat
Friday. After dinner ln the Brock
48 atudenta listened to a talk on
Preventive Medicine by Dr. Dolman.
Dr. Dolman stated that there ia
a surplus of Information, for combatting disease, which falls to
reach either the practitioner or
the public. He told the students
the responsibility of applying this
information rests not on the medical authorities alone but on every
Individual.
Later students wore shown three
films. Dr. Dolman expressed his
sorrow that the first one, "Who
Sheds His Blood" was not available at the beginning of the Blood
Donor campaign. It is a film that
would be highly recommended for
a public showing. In it ls shown
the bombec. victims receiving
transfusions. It takes only a few
clays to regain the 420 cc, less
than one pint, of blood which is
lost  in     a  transfusion.
After three donations the donor
is presented with a special Rod
Cross Blood Donor pin. The blood
is classified, canned, and shipped
overseas. The donor is typed so
that the serum may be given to
any recipient. This saves time In
not having to type shocked and
dying  patients.
The aecond film which revealed
the lntrlcasles of bone grafting was
received with groans by the horrified audience ot wobld-be medical students. They saw four
inches of bone removed from the
patient's leg and grafted onto her
spine. The bone waa secured with
a screw which was removed two
months  later.
Members of the club are going
on two field trips, one to St. Paul's
Hospital and the other to Essondale.
Ballet Display
Decorates Desk
e STUDENTS who are enthusiasts of the Russlon BaUet will
be Interested in the miniature ballet on display this week at the
reference  desk  ln  the   library.
This model was obtained through
the courtesy of Mra. S. J. Schofleld who constructed the stago
and the cut-out figures herself.
Both these figures and the ones
in the display case outalde the
periodical room are exact copies
of the costumes and poses of the
dancers  in   the  actual   ballets.
Cheating
On Passes
To Stop
e FOLLOWING REPORTS
that several outsiders
gained admission to last Saturday's Arts Mixer on borrowed student passes, Student Council this week
placed heavy penalties on
the practice of students lending their passes to any person for use at functions
either on or off the campus.
Any student found guilty of
such an offense will have his
pass confiscated.
Overcrowding at paas functlona
In the Auditorium forced CouncU
to decree that.ln future all atudenta entering features advertised
as pass functions must Show their
passes to attendante at the doors-
It waa noted that many who did
not possess paaaea occupied aeats
at these functions and thus barred regular paas holders from attending.
The Special Events Committee
plana to avert the disappointment
experienced by ~-m~~ last Monday
whsn they oould not gat in to haa*
Kenneth Spencer, famoua negro
ginger, by placing a publio address
ayatem In Brook Mall ae the overflow crowd may hear future ocn-
certe there.
Food Cost
Rises For
Co-opers
e COST OF living la soaring but
the three co-operative houses afU-
lated with the University have
managed to keep the monthly
board of their membera below 9-8.
With food prlcea skyrocketing
officials of the University Student's Co-operative Association
were worried a to whether board
would exceed 925. In tne contract
Issued to members before the start
of Varsity it was stated that thla
sum would be the maximum.
At a meeting earlier thia term
called to discuss the problem of
cost of living the 40 members of
the three houses, two boys' and
one girls', decided to base the
board for the year on the month
of  October.
Results of the month's operations have been announced, the
cost of board amounting to $24.70
per person, an increase of $2.38
over  the  average  of last year.
"However with a more economical system of marketing going
Into effect and the better organization that has come with the progress of the term, we feel that
unless prices rise greatly the price
of board wlU be kept within tho
925 limit," stated Don Bunyan,
chairman of the board of direetora
of the  U.S.C.A.
COTC Men
Parade On
November 11
e REFLECTING credit on the
C.O.T.C. corpa' training, a
company of 200 U.B.C. cadeta took
part in the Rememberance Day
parade at Victory Square November 11.
The student aoldiera marched
with other reserve and active units of the army, navy and airforce.
Criticism waa levelled at the officer commanding the C. C*. T. C.
squad. This lieutenant kept the
men standing rigidly "at ease"
during the service with great-coats
tightly buttoned, despite the fact
aX\ other units were standing easy.
Not until three men had passed
out did he see fit to give the cadets a break and stand them easy
also.
Spencer's Songs Thrill
Undergrads at Recital
e A VOICE that has thrilled
thousands of radio listeners in
the United States drew thunderous applause when Kenneth Spencer sang at the U.B.C. Auditorium
last   Monday   noon.
The tall, well-built Los Angeles
born Negro, came to the University as a pass feature attraction,
and for an hour held the rapt
attention of the students with selection.': ranging from the works of
Beethoven and Mozart to tho
amusing       "Chinese       Nursery
Rhymes." Spencer ranks with
Marian Anderson ancl Paul Robeson as one of the great artists of
the  Negro  race.
Mr. Spencer was ln Vancouver
cltiririLj tilt* course of a trans-continental concert tour, and is now
on his way back to New York to,
commence a series of programmes
on C.D.S. Greatly pleased with
tho reception given him by tho
students here, he stated that they
wore "a very critical but enthusiastic  audience."

Ubyssey Steps Out
Today's issue marks another step forward in Ubyssey history. We who have
printer's ink running through our veins see
in it an advance which brings us just that
much closer to our ultimate dream—the day
U.B.C. has a daily newspaper published by
its own faculty of Journalism.
The Ubyssey started as a struggling
monthly journal in 1916, the year after the
university was founded. It soon changed to
a 'weekly, however, and continued as such
until 1929. In that year it began publication
Tuesdays and Fridays as a 5-column paper.
The beginning of 1931 marked its growth to
the six-column sheet which has appeared on
the campus until today. Last January the
Ubyssey was the flrst Canadian university
newspaper to adopt "streamlined" make-up
and we prided ourselves on publishing the
most modern paper in the country.
Now we offer you the new bigger, and
we sincerely hope, better Ubyssey. Accurate and complete campus coverage Is our
motto, plus bright and interesting exchange
stories and features.
i
And we have an extra special surprise
to offer our readers beginning next Thursday. Starting in the issue of that date the
Ubyssey will carry up-to-the-minute news
flashes with 'world-coverage by British United Press!
The Ubyssey marches on.
New Era In Pass Features
The fall term, as most of us are beginning to realize to our horror, is well past
the half-way mark and the time for standing
off and surveying the past two months with
an eye towards preparing the future is at
hand. Our two capable columnists, Andrew
Sneddon and Lionel H. Salt, are of the same
opinion and have chosen today to blast two
important campus problems and what
should be done about them.
In this space we do not intend to blast
anybody. On the contrary, we wish to commend a certain group for the work they
have done so far this year and for the plans
they are laying for future sessions. The
name of this group is the Special Events
Committee, under L.S.E. President Bob Morris, end composed of John Caraon, Oordon
MoFarlane and Douglas Maloney.
These energetie young men have been
largely responsible for the program of pass
features whioh has been presented so far
this term. We think that everyone will agree
that a decided advance has been made in
the number and quality of pass features on
the campus, and if the ambitions of the
Special Events Committee succeed, a new
era for the pass system will have dawned.
At last students are going to get value for
the three dollars they spend on passes.
lite Special Events Committee, set up
by L.S.E. early in the term to bring to the
campus unusual and outstanding talent, has
made a good start, and judging from the
names they have lined up for presentation
later on, will continue to justify their existence.   It ls their desire to establish contact
with downtown organizations responsible
% for bringing a wide variety of entertainers
to Vancouver, work in close co-operation
with them to bring these artists to the campus, and so build up student appreciation of
really top-flight entertainment. They also
plan to bring world-travelled figures here to
lecture on their experiences. *
Such men as Sir Charles Madden, commander of the H.M.S. Warsplte; W. L. MacTavish, Province editor recently returned
from Britain; Wiliam L. Shirer, Edwin R.
Murrill and Quentin Reynolds, all famous
War-correspondents direct from Europe, are
but a few of the names on the tentative list
for future pass features.
In the entertainment world, other sing-
era of the calibre of Kenneth Spencer; big-
name bands like Artie Shaw's and Charlie
Barnet's; world-known figures such as Singapore Joe Fisher, will also be contacted for
campua appearances.
No more will studenta 'be justified in
saying they don't get their money's worth
out of their passes.
BUT—and here's a big problem. The
Auditorium is not large enough to hold the
audiences which these special attractions
draw. Many who do not possess student
passes attend and take up seats which students who do own passes are denied. Therefore, it has been rightly decided that in future studenta must show their passes at the
door before entering any pass feature. After
all, the students who pay for the programs
should have first opportunity to see them.
Faculty  Forum
By Dr. G. G. Sedgewick
OF NAMES
e "WHAT'S in a name?" asked Juliet as
she fondly considered what made Romeo
so wonderful. It would seem to be a simple
question; and, being addressed to the universe at large, it should have got a final
answer before now. There have been answers, very many of them, but they have
been so contradictory that by this time Juliet
must surely regret she ever started anything. At the moment—though not later—
she had her own all-too-famous solutfon of
the riddle:
"wherefore art thou Romeo?
-------a rose
by any other name would smell
as sweet."
But would it?
e LONG BEFORE Juliet fell in love, our
primitive forefathers had been considering her question. In general they had come
to a conclusion different from hers. To give
a name to something, they thought, was to
give it a living centre. In an old fairy tale,
a queen thwarted the evil designs of a dwarf,
Rumpelstiltskin, by getting hold of his name:
when she had done that, she had him where
he lived and there was nothing he could
do about it.
Sometimes a name worked in the opposite way. If you were foolish enough to
utter the name of a devil, he might suddenly
appear before you and put you in an extremely awkward situation. The only thing
to do in the circumstances was to say a
holy name, if you knew one, and then the
devil would scurry back to the nether regions in a fume of sulphur. Our ancestors
did not agree with Juliet: to them, names
and smells were very closely related indeed.
Shakespearian people other than Juliet
have various opinions on the point. Hotspur,
for instance, was more than a skeptic about
names—he was positively cynical. When the
wizard Glendower boasted he could "call
spirits from the vasty deep," Hotspur was
rude enough to ask
"But will they come when you
do call them?"
Hamlet, much wiser, was neither skeptic
nor cynic. Trying to get hia ghostly father
to speak, he fired oft a volley of names at
the shade, knowing that it would respond
to the right one:
"I'll call thee Hamlet,
King,   father,   royal   Dane.    O
answer me!'
Hamlet   wns   sure   he   was   using   the   right
method, but he simply didn't know enough
titles. And Duke Theseus, who always knew
everything, was of course even more certain,
for he announced boldly that poets could
give
"to airy nothing
A local habitation and a name"
—that is, give to it miraculously some kind
of definite life.
e MY OWN PERSONAL experience inclines me, as you might expect, not so
much to Hamlet and Theseus as to the primitive savage. I have found names only too
pressingly important. Have you ever called
a lady "Mrs. Jones" when her real name
was "Mrs. Marjoribanks?" Try it, if you
are ignorant or brave; and I promise you,
you will never try it again.
But names may be a burden instead of
a pride. I once taught, in St. Louis, a very
pretty and charming girl who always tremblingly apologized for being chained to the
handle Kalbfleisch. No wonder she wanted
to change it! And I am sure she was able to
do so very soon.
Curiously enough, the most potent and
terrifying woman I have ever met actually
rejoiced in the name of Veals, which looks
like the exact equivalent of the German
Kalbfleisch. The English name may have
had nothing to do, originally, with calves or
the butcher-shop, but unhappily origins have
no power to deodorize "Miss Veals." In
spite of that undeniable fact, no one would
have dared to suggest to the lady that she
change her name. At any rate, no one ever
did. So you see that one woman's meat is
another woman's poison,
e THE MOST convincing evidence I know
of the power of names comes from my
experience in English 9. It isn't easy to ask
questions in English 9, for I don't know one-
tenth of the people in it. Consequently, the
majority of the class remain safe in a bombproof shelter of anonymity. The lecturer
can't very well say, "Will that fellow with

BY LIONEL SALT
e I'M GOING to have to watch
my step.
And I shall probably incur the
wrath of my friends in those campus clubs I spoke about some time
ago. For what I'm about to conceive . . . they've screamed about
for years.
SEX!
What a livid, burning, all-lnclu-
stVe word that Is. It is modernistic
to talk about it, tt ls old-fashioned to spurn lt, it is customary to
mock  It.
But—seriously—the problems of
sex are as vital a part of our
everyday life, as are the problems
of earning a livelihood, yet Is is
continually being laughed and
Joked Into secrecy.
In secrecy, sex becomes pornography.
• •   •   •
e AS ONK WRITER on the subject of sex education states simply
"Humans are conceived and born
in a highly sexual manner"—a
rather neat way of putting It.
Unfortunately, however, for the
most ot us, this ls the only chance
we have to regard the sex act, and
Ita resultant complexities, In the
light of unbiased (morally) examination. Being young at the time,
though, we are apt to overlook the
opportunity offered.
Parents, obviously, enter into a
tacit agreement that no attempt
will be made by them to educate
their children in the myateriea of
sex. To suggest the removal of the
connotation of mystery from aex
would Inevitably shock them.
• •   •   •
e SO YOUTH blunders on Into
the forest of secrecy. Indulges
In erotlo play, runs the gamut of
smutty storiea, dirty worda, scrawled lavatory walla, becomes entrapped In the network of pornography.
For It la all one big aecret joke.
With fhe dawn of the age of
puberty, with boya and girls experiencing the change to manhood
and womanhood, cornea tha dawn,
alao, of an age of conflict and
trouble.
Youth now finds itself invested
with a atrange new power, and
pornography, the "dirty little aecret", the furtive, sneaking, cunning rubbing of the Inflamed spot
in the imagination dictates Ita
usage.
Masturbation is the result ln far
too many cases, and some never
conquer it. Others do, only to
effect a clumsy congress, be forced
into marriage, and lead a wretched
life. Still others wed sterility, live
without sex, or succumb to tho
glamour of promiscuity, running
from dissatisfaction to dissatisfaction. Homosexuality enmeshes far
too  many  victims.
• •    •    •
e WHAT ARK wo doing to combat this menace?
As a university, dedicated to the
task of educating young men and
women to accept the responsibilities of citizenship, U.B.C, along
■with many others, stubbornly refuses to recognize the importance
of inaugurating some form of Instruction which would lift the veil
from the "dirty little secret".
At St. George Williams College
In Montreal a seminar group has
been formed of both students and
faculty members, with qualified
lecturers slated to discuss such
topics as "Venereal Disease", Adolescent Problems", "Morality and
Sex", "Sex Abnormalities", and
other related subjects.
U.B.C. needs a course such as
that. Quite frankly, there isn't a
student on the campus, who wouldn't benefit from experienced advice,  and liberal discussion.
Do you deny it?

Editor,   the  Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
As a bridge lover, I would liko
to suggest that more card tables*
and decks of cards be provided
for our use In Brock Lounge. At
the present time, there are only
four tables in the Lounge, and
when these are full, which is most
of the time, there is absolutely no
place  for  us to  play.
I suggest that we be supplied
with more tables and cards when
they  are  needed.

Editor Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
At last I have been constrained
to voice an opinion of the "Red
Hot" yell of Varsity rooting section at baaket ball games. For
grown up Varsity students to continue such childish yella, It la deplorable.
Do they not know that when
iron ls Red Hot it la soft and easily
beaten? Let ua have our "Kitsilano" and other characteristic Varaity yella and forgot the "Red
Rot." Youra for many yeara,

Reviles Arts
Fights Aggies
• THE FAMILIAR chant of the
Sclencemen's yell echoed loud
and long through the halls of Applied Science last Friday noon,
when the Sciencemen got together
in one of their notorious pep
meets.
Free cokes were supplied to all.
After the reading of the revised
S.M.U.S. constitution by President
Rod Monis, the meeting was
thrown open to contributions by
all, jokes and songs being the order of the day.
After the meeting, several of the
more aggressive of the red-sweatered men formed a snake parade,
which made its way to the strains
of "Dirty old Arts" without any
opnor.'tlon whatsoever, through
the Caf and the Arts common
room. It was not until they reached the Aggie Building that the
parade became a success. Here
the farmer boys put up a stiff resistance in defence of their rights,
and the Sclencemen were forced
to retreat.

• MARY'S UTTLE LAMB followed her to school one day,
but who ever heard of a bear at
college? Next Thursday night enthusiastic Artsmen and Aggies will
Introduce that brainchild of A. A.
Milne's to the campus, "Wlnnle-
the-Pooh."
The Arts-Aggie Ball, the biggest
event on the fall social calendar,
will have this beloved character
for a theme. Wlnnie-the-Pooh
will bo revived from the deep recesses of th minds of Artsmen and
Aggies where he has been slumbering ever since the Grade Four
days, to be ctad in the mirth and
splendour of a formal ball.
Chuck McNeely, president of A.
M.U.S., was mysterious when
asked for Information about this
novel theme. (He hadn't read the
book, so he was rather vague as
to who W. the P. is).
As usual a Pep Meet will be
hold two days before the dance,
with Ole Olson's orchestra playing. The dance will be at the Commodore Cabaret.
The Winnie theme will be carried out In the decorations and
program. Each dance will represent a character from Milne's book.
The Idea sprang from the brains
■of Al Farrow and Lorraine Thomson,  Aggie Executive members.

• HOOTING, howling, yammering, an estimated crowd of 500
students expressed noisy appreciation of "The Indians are Coming", Chapter II., at Wednesday's
Film   Society   showing.
Better projection facilities havo
been secured by the acquisition
this year of new equipment. Following the action of Student Council, refurnishing of window drapes
to permit total exclusion of light
was effected for showing this year.
A new "beaded" screen — as distinct from the flat canvas type In
use last year Is also Included lu
the list   of  new  equipment.
It is believed that arrangements
will shortly be effected by which
evening showings will be held at
the university under the joint auspices of the Vancouver branch of
the National Film Society and tho
campus organization as a pass feature.
Indications are that these evening showings will be a "pass feature"   for   students.

e TORONTO, ONT.—No debates
will be held in Hart House for
the duration of the war, The Debates Committee of Hart House
decided at a recent meeting. While
no official statement of explanation was forthcoming, the report
Is circulated that the committee
believes that such debates might
bring unfavorable publicity to tho
university in time of war.
MONTREAL, QUE.—McOlll Un-
Iverslty suspended lectures for
three hours only on Armistice
Day. Formerly the University has
always celebrated Nov. 11 as a.
full holiday, but this year it was
deemed advisable to follow the
above procedure on account of
the war.
SASKATCHEWAN. — Color ls

flcal publication of Saskatchewan
University turnvd out a startling
blue book Issue last week. However, the University of Alberta
went one better with a particularly bright scarlet and yellow Sadie?
Hawkln's Issue.
SEATTLE, WASH.—Students held
a rally recently to celebrate the
opening of the ski season, complete with "ley films, torrid jivo,
and 'Hell' Queens." The spec/af
edition of the WASItTiCiTON

are waiting for now la the tlrst
good fall of snow, which they expect in a week or two.
Donations
Of Blood
Gratifying
e "THE ENROLLMENT of blood
donors at U.B.C, haa been very
gratifying Indeed." auch waa the
comment of Dr. Dolman, sponsor
of the Blood Donations Campaign
on the campus, when Interviewed
last Monday.
Students are reminded that the
campaign will continue, and that
the success of the whole campaign
depends upon regular donors.
Donors are expected to give blood
donations at least once every three
or four months.
Fraternities on the campus are
co-operating splendidly with the
campaign, the Kappa Sigma's having signed up to the man. Eighty
per lent of all the male students
and staff of the Bacteriology department havo signed away a pint
of their   Hood.
No male student of average
health should hesitate to become
a regular blood donor on the
grounds that he will suffer any ill
alter effects or any sensation of
pain at the time. Apprehension ts
the only thing anybody might suffer from while giving a blood donation.
Phrateres
Chapters
Split Cup
e ANNOUNCEMENT of the winners of the Phrateres Cup
awarded annually to the chapter
showing the most enthusiasm and
co-operation, was made at the All-
Phrateres meeting Wednesday
noon. Dolly Ellis, former president
of the Sub-Chapters explained
that as two chapters — Eta and
Alpha — were ao close that it
would be unfair to give either one
preference, both chapters would
have their names engraved on the
cup. Special mention was made of
Jean Thompson, president of Eta,
and Peggy Moyles of Alpha last
year.
Phrateres president, Mary Mulvin, urged the girls to do as much
Red Cross work as possible, but
she said that the work was pro-
greslng very wells. Plans for
Christmas hampers will be dls-
cuaed at the next sub-chapter
meeting.

SEATTLE, WASHINGTON —
Combination of the old letter system and a new point system devised by Professor E. R. Guthrie
of the Washington Universfly psychology department has been proposed by the faculty senate.
The faculty claims that this
combination of systems will give
them much more Information on
students' achievements, the letter
grade being the instructor's judgment on quality and the number
grade (which may vary from 1 to
&y being an objective Index as to
position in class. Student opinion
seems, however, to be definitely
opposed  to  the new system.
MONTREAL, QUE.—The Georgian, official organ of Sir George

Self Denial
Returns Hit
NewLow-$26
• RETURNS FROM this week's
self-denial fell fa** below the
average of previous weeks. Proceeds netted only $23.65 as compared with an average of about
$37. This brings the total up to
date  to   $209.26.
Considerable student apathy was
climaxed in one girl's collecting
not a red cent. Lois Nicholson feels
that this phenomenal low of all
times is clue In great part to tho
fact that most men students gave
their weekly sacrifice on Poppy
clay. Many students, affected by
the holiday, under the Impression
that Wednesday was Monday refused to shell  out.
Red Cross work Is continuing
on Its high plane, however, with
125 girls turning out each -week
for war work. Up to date 237 kit
bags have been completed and civilian refugee work has been well
started. Mrs. Soward who Is supervising the work, expressed a
general satisfaction with the attitude of the girls and what they
have   accomplished.
Any girl who can knit or sew
or even hold self-denial tins, and
who has not already registered Is

Third Straight
e TO THE HANDFUL of faithful Varsity basketball fans
who turned oyt at the Campus gym on Wednesday night
went the privilege of watching the Thunderbirds make their
best appearance of the season, although bo-wing out to Tookes
by a 50—39 count.
The next game, and last one until after Christmas for the
students, will be tomorrow night at the V.A.C. gym. Jim
Scott, who had given up the game in favour of studies, will
make his first appearance for the Blue and Gold. Coach
Van Vliet has finally persuaded him to turn out and his
height and scoring ability should greatly favour the 'Birds
to draw first blood from the Stacy quintet.
Wednesday   night,    the   students
were on the short end of a 7-4
count at the first breather. Then
In the second quarter the Thunderbirda awoke and became tho
team of old as they out-scored
Tookes 16-8 and jumped Into a
20-15 lead. They became a fighting,
driving team as they grabbed rebounds, roUed the baU In gre .t
atyle, and generaUy outplayed the
shirtmen in every part of the game
Joe Ryan and Art Barton were
the Mg noises on the attack with
the latter rifling home 9 pointa,
putting the atudenta on what seemed the read te victory.
But then came the draatle third
eeaaion that turned theae aweet
visions of a flrat aueeaaa Into a
complete rout. The tables ware
turned ae Tookes notched up 93
ceunten* to a meagre 8 for the
students. Oeorge McConnell, Jaek
Meal and Irwin Stout were the
leaders of this slaughter aa they
ran through for baskets almoet at
will.
REVIVAL
In the final canto the atudenta
came to life again, but It waa too
late; the damage had been done.
They kept pace with the Shirtmen,
matching them point for point, 13
In all, but It was Impossible to
overtake the big lead gained In
the previous period.
ReUable "Lefty" Barton lead the
baaket parade for the students with
a tidy sum of 13. Joe Ryan turned
in a good game on the defenae,
holding his check scoreless and
picking up 8 for himself.

e IT WAS a disappointing crowd

paid admissions that witnessed tho
game on Wednesday night. How
can the boys be expected to win
if there ls not even a big enough
crowd to make playing the game
worth while?
e HANK MOTTISHAW did not

suffering from the split finger suffered in last week's encounter
with Stacy's.
e A STRANGE fact of the gamo
was that George McConnell ancl
Jack Neal were the only two

Slumping   Soccermen   Draw   Again
'Birds Drop Sloppy
Cup Game To Reps
e    PLAYING with more spirit than skill, and not too much
of spirit,, Varsity Thunderbird ruggers dropped their first
McKechnie Cup game to Vancouver Reps 16-11 on Armistice Day at Brockton Point.
For both sides the contest waa
definitely below McKechnie Cup
standards. As Varaity Coach Tom
Stewart aaya, "It waa a poor exhibition all round."
The acore would have been much
larger for the white-ahtrted Repa
had Uoyd Williams' kicking toe
behaved as It usually doea. He
missed no laaa than four acoring
ehancea on kleka, two of them ait-
tera.
SPOTTY
The Blue and Oold could never
pull together their few patohea of
brilliance. Generally, the acrum
fall down on defenae and the backs
on offense. Handling waa ao poor
that the oval got out to the wing
only twice, despite the fact that
the college acrum hooked out the
ball better than the Repa and halfback Oordy Sutherland whipped
It out to the line ln smart fashion.
In structure, the game was very
like the cup contest played last
year on Armistice Day. Vancouver
went ahead early, leading 3-0 at
the half. Varsity tied lt up, only to
have Vancouver pull away gradually in the last part of the afternoon.
Indicative of the sloppy play
were numerous penalties for minor  infractions.
But Referee Frank Burnham was
too busy looking for offsides and
knock-on3 by the Thunderbirds to
notice Vancouver's Sammy Caras
displaying r. fine brand of gouging
and headlocks.
FAST START
The Reps started with a rush.
It was Spiers that saved the day
many a time ln the first few minutes And he was forced out for
a while with an injured ankle
which bothered him the rest of the
afternoon.
First scoring chance for either
side came on a penalty against
U.B.C. for playing the ball on the
ground, but Williams missed the
easy kick.
Then Vancouver's Coombes
mlsaed another penalty ahot from
ln front of the goal. All the while,
the Varsity scrum and desperately
tackling backs were holding off
Rep  rushes.
CARLISLE CLICKS
But after contlnua\ pressing, the
Reps scored when Carlisle went
over from a forward scramble.
WiUiams missed the convert, leaving the count 3-0 at the changeover.
In the second half, the Varsity
threes began to click, and Bud
Spiers went over for a snappy try.
Al Narod touched the oval down
too soon and eagle-eye Waters
noticed the act, so no attempt at
convert  was  allowed
With the score tied 3-3, Varsity
supporters In the very small crowd
perked up. But not for long, for
things began to happen in quick
succession.
After Williams had missed another penalty shot, Jack Waters
took a wild U.B.C. kick to go over
again for the Repa. Williams convert attempt was no good. Score
was  then  6-3.
WILLIAMS WAITS
From a five yard acrum, Johnny Carlisle got his second try for
the Whiteshirts. Williams' convert
was good after much deliberation
on the second attempt. His first
had been spoiled by a premature
charge of over-zealous college
scrum men, Burnham ruled "No
Charging", on the second attempt,
so Lanky Lloyd deliberately took
his time while the crowd shouted
"Play Ball."
This   left   the  score   11-3.
Orme Hall countered with an
easy penalty shot, bringing Var-
■•:ity   closer   with   6   poinls   against
Then Len Coombes broke through
to catch the Thunderbird backs
flat-foot .-d to score between the
poets:. Williams made the
eioli g,
On Varaity'a beat attempt of the
day, a smart three run that gave
Vancouver no chance, Jack Tucker went over near the flag. Hall's
convert on the angle waa perfect
for 19-11.
On tha klckoff, Tucker broke
loose again but waa -topped ln
time. And there, the acoring alao
stopped, with Varaity threatening
in a general melee.
Wing Jack Tucker waa the only
atar for Varaity, with great tackling and brilliant running whenever he got the ball.
Al Oillesple waa hot and eold . .
Orme Hall, who topped the Blue
and Oold acoring with five paints,
showed spirited and heady play,
but waa unsure in hla handling on
three-quarter play.
Evann Davies, the old reliable,
tried to Inject a Uttle fight Into
the scrum and showed good kicking to touch.
POOR HANDLING
The Varsity three-line showed
patches of tackling that were more
desperate than skilful. Their attack was poor, with fumbling
stopping the oval before it got
very  far  toward  the  wings.
Our scrum heeled well and out-
pushed the Reps. But their weakness was ln "tackling", which consisted of rushing up to their opponents and looking them In tho
eye, and then making a desperate
lunge after they had passed. Grant
was the horrible example of this.
THE LINEUP:
Forwards—Al Narod. Mack Buck,
Bill Grant, Bill Orr. Boyd Crosby,
Jerry Brown, Evann Davies, and
Al  McLaughlin.
Halfback—Gordy   Sutherland.
Five-eighths—Bud   Spiers.
Threes—Orme Hall, Al Gillespie, Don Ralston, and Jack Tucker.
Fullback—Oeorge   Rush.

e COULD TKE REASON why
Mr. White's hard hitting hockey team faUed to set back Ex.
Kits, long known aa the "Speed
Queens of Hockey," be that Kits
had a rabid rooting section on
hand to bolster the team's apirit?
If this was reason for Saturday's
win 4-2 for Kits rand lt la possible) why shouldn't the Varsity
team be shown the similar enthusiasm shown the other teams? Answers to these questions axe obvious. Now will you try for a 94
question?
That triple threat man, Mr.
White, Is to Varsity's hockey team
as Kabat is to Vancouver College.
Mr. White seems to think that the
chief fault of this year's team
Is lack of co-operation of the team
as a  whole.
