OXFORD UNION  SET UP AS
EXAMPLE FOR LOCAL CLUB
Professor Gibson Tolls
Of Llfo at Famous
Debating Society
Orators of the Political Discussion Club Wednesday heard Prof.
James -A. Gibson speak on the Oxford Union Sooiety, one ot the most
celebrated Kngllsh debating socle-
ties.
This address wss of particular
Interest sines the Oxford Union
was selected Ss the pattern on
whioh the P. D. C. la modelling
Itself.
Prof. Olbson, who went to Oxford
as a Rhodes Scholar from U.B.C,
was himself an officer of the Society and as such took an active part
in their debates. Because ot bis
experience with this august organization Mr. Gibson was elected honorary president ot the campus club
when flrst formed.
PROPRIBTY
established by Oxford students
In 1823 the Union was popular
from the first and soon after Inception bad Its own premises. Today It resembles a spacious men's
club with comfortable furnishings
and a splendid library- Throughout
the rooms are busts of great British
statesmen, members ot the club In
their atudent days.
Daily Province
Head To Speak
M. E. Nichols, Managing Director
of The Daily Province, will be the
speaker at the meeting of the Vancouver Institute to be held ln Room
100 of the Arta Building, the Unlveralty of Britiah Columbia, at 8.15
on Saturday evening. Hia subjeot
will be "Factors in National Attainment."
Mr. Nichols has.had an extensive
experience ln Journalism. He was
parliamentary correspondent at Ot-
twa for the Toronto Telegram, resigning to become President and
Bdltor of tbe Winnipeg Telegram
ln 1906. In 1920 he beoame Managing Director ot the Winnipeg Tribune. He has twice been a delegate to the Imperial Press Conference, and while in Blngland was in
demand as a speaker on Canadian
topics.
Mr. Nichols has been President,
and Honorary President, of tbe
Canadian Press, as well as a recipient of other professional honors ln
Canadian Journalism. He is a recognised authority on many aspects
of Canadian activities and Interests.
Sykes Gets Sanction
To Hold Weekly
Technocracy Classes
Paul Sykea waa given permission by Studenta' Council Monday
evening to conduct a eourae on
Teohnocraoy on tha campua during the next few weeka.
Sykea, who will give the aerlea
of lecturea on the aubject, wrote
to council atatlng that Technocracy la not political In nature. It
waa atated that he haa about 18
atudenta Intaraated In hla claaaea.
Debates   are   oondueted   with
scrupulous   propriety.     However,
wit and banter are a feature of
them   with   clever  replies   being
well  applauded.    Offleers of ths
•oelety   attend   In   full   evening
dress,  adding  to  ths  dignity  of
the proceedings.
Despite this decorum the Union
haa seen stormy sessions.    On one
occasion   Alfred   Duff  Cooper  was
violently   hissed   for   venturing   to
criticise members. Retorting promptly with "You can always tell when
you've trodden on a snake because
it hisses" he was greeted with more
of the same.
PROMINKNT VISITORS
Prominent statesmen are often
present at debates. In 1923 Lloyd
Oeorge was a visitor, debating In
defense of the Versailles Treaty.
Members often take an active part
ln politics, and in some cases they
have been invited to contest constituencies ln national elections.
In thanking Mr. Gibson, Speaker
Morris Belkin voiced the opinion
that the P. D. C. had set a high
standard for itself in selecting the
Oxford Union as their model, but
that he expected the campus club
would slowly but aurely reach this
standard.
Racial Minorities to
Be Topic of Debate
At Politics Club
A meeting of the Polltleal Dlsousslon Olub will be held next
Thursday In Arts 100. A special
"spectators' gallery" will be set
aside at the rmmr of the room for
non-members who wish to hsar
the proceedings. However, only
aotual members will be allowed
te speak.
Subject ef the debate will be a
resolution put forth by the Conservative government In favor ef
the adoption of a Raelal Minorities Bill.
This bill would provide for the
curtailment of Japanese penetration Into Osnadlan business, the
readjustment ef relations between
the Freneh-Oanadlans and ether
Oanadlan nationals and the Instituting of meaaurea te oonslder
the welfare and prosperity of raelal  mlnorltlea In Oanada.
Presidential Election

U.B.C. HIT
BY FEVER
OF ELECTION
Rumour Smith/ Davit
For President
Gertrude Pitman
vs. Bunty Butters
By JOHN QARRBTT
With the better part of the spring
term already passed, and with elections a short three weeks away,
students seem to have been busy
choosing their prospective candidates tor the nine positions on the
Students' Council. It appears that
there will be several dark horses
in the running this year, as well
as the  "old  favorites."
The post of President is sure to
be contested this year with our
present treasurer, Bob Smith, and
our preaent L.S.B. rep., Malcolm
Brown ,both intending to vie for
the honora of the "Bosses' desk."
But their path is not as smooth
as it might have been, for the Ubyssey has been informed tbat the
Men of Science are going to put
their own Prexy up for election,
Jack Davis.
The L.S.K. struggle this year
should b ehearty enough with a
pair of new faces opposite one
naether. The man behind Varsity
Time, Struan "Pinky" Robertson,
seems a likely aspirant for this
post) but to make a quarrel out
ef It, Morris Belkin, the busy
man ef the Publlolty Oommittee,
has decided to let his pspers go
In.
The hopefula for the student Exchequer's gown have for the most
part kept out of sight. Rumor has
it that one of the sparks of the
Thunderbird rugby team, Ted McPhee, should turn into a fine, upstanding treasurer.
M.A.A. STRONGLY CONTBSTKD
The department of Men's Athletics appears to be ln an enviable
position with at least two excellent
contestants getting into their campaign strip. Frank Turner, dynamic Sports Bdltor of the Ubyssey
and leading light ot the Varaity
basketball' team, will be provided
with much opposition by Tommy
Williams, hero of the grid aquad
this year. Alex Lucas and Maurice
Lambert will also be ln the Held,
it is rumored.
RUNKLK,  ORANT,  MceLKOD
No worse off than the Men's Athletics, the Women's section seems
flooded with "sure starters." Peggy MacLeod, President of the Women's Big Block Club, Is the favorite of a large number of tbe coeds.
But her path Is beset with many
difficulties ln the form of Margaret
Bvans, Prealdent of the Women's
Hockey Club, and Pauline Grant,
who is on the Women's Athletics
Executive this year. Not content
with this crew ot candidates, another powerful section of the co-ed
population are convinced that Pam
Runkle, Vice-president of Women's
Athletics this year, will run for office.
That Job of Joba, Secretary to
the Students' Council, la as yet
apparently net thlek with nomln-
eea-to-be. Two namea have been
given to the Ubyssey, Oertrude
Pitman and the swimming Bunty
Butters.
The next spot to be filled, M.U.
S., ia assured of an efficient worker next year. Prancing to the barrier are a minimum of three stalwart horses, Phil Griffin, who Is
President of the Junior Class, John
Brynelsen, who Is famous as Junior Member of this year's council,
and Carson McGulre, who has rocked the political world by deciding
to "sit in on the poker game between the Governors and the Government."
The    Ubyssey    has   been   told
there are several oo-eds who ore
likely  to  run  for the   Important
poaltlon  of  W.U.S.,  to  wit,   Mlm
Coualna,    Peggy   Thompaon    and
Morva   Longfellow,  who   la  vloe-
prealdent of the W.U.S. thia year.
Next year's Junior Member looks
very strongly like this year's President of the Sophomore Class, John
Pearson,   but   there   may   be   other
names  that have not come  to  the
ears of this reporter.

Tim Buck Ejected at McGiil
DIRECT VIOLATION OF LAW TO ALLOW RED
LEADER TO PROPOGATE COMMUNISM
IN PROVINCE OF QUEBEC
Eastern University Allows Fascist
Leader To Speak, However
By Canadian  University Press
MONTREAL, Feb. 18.—Wednesday evening the McGiil Students' Council was forced to
exclude the Communist speaker, Tim Buck, from the McGiil Union.   Mr. Buck was to have
spoken as one of a number of speakers in a political symposium which is being held under
the auspices of the McGiil Social Problems Club.
"Young Canada Must
Arise"-Tim Buck's Forbidden
Speech To McGiil Students
By TIM BUCK
(Special te Canadian University Pfese)
TORONTO, Feb. 18—I learnt with great consternation
last night of the McGiil Students' Council capitulation to the
Duplessis-Arcand forces forbidding my speech to McGiil students. For generations McGiil University has been the proud
carrier of cherished Canadian ideals of democracy, freedom
of opinion and consciousness. This famous Canadian house
of learning is threatened by reactions which are preparing
to stifle Canada's youth, destroy achievement, culture, learning, and to pave the way for introducing into Canada Mussolini-Hitler Fascism.
Today there is a record Communist struggle for the
extenaion of the democratic rights of the people.    We
are fighting for trade union organization, guaranteeing
advancement of living standards, of producers' wealth.
We are fighting for unemployment insurance to provide
for workless Canadians, for the rehabilitation of Saskatchewan and other drought-striken farm areas; providing greater
opportunities for youth on the basis of the  organization;
mass vocational  training,  and  university  extensions.    The
finances needed for the above urgent requirement for the
people of Canada can be raised by taxing fifty millionaires
controlling Canada's wealth.
The Duplessis padlock law is employed against progressive people, whilst encouragement is given Quebec
Fascists under Arcand, who are drilling unlawfully, and
threatening a march on Ottawa.
This indicates that the Quebec government is supporting the plans of Mussolini and Hitler for the establishment
of a military Fascist base in Quebec against Canadian' and
American democracy. A Fascist-inspired revolt placed Brazil
in the camp of Hitler and Mussolini—war organizers, treaty
breakers, head-coppers, and baby killers.
All the universities in Canada and the United States
will be astonished at the action of the McGiil Students'
Council. Financial grants by Sir Edward Beatty and St.
James Street give no right to Canadian millionaires to
stifle young Canada's education or understanding of today's problems.
I appeal to every student of McGiil to raise his voice in
protest against McGiil capitulation to dark reaction. I appeal
to students to demand that the Council withdraw objections
to free speeches of any political current interesting students
today.
Duplessis will not dare prosecute the world-famous house
of learning for upholding the right of free study, of free education.
Young Canada, arise and defend the achievements of a
century of Canadian struggle against the family compact of
1807-1937.
Liberty must win.
Dark forces must be defeated.
(Signed) TIM BUCK.
Brown Organizes Lecture
Series to Be Transcribed
Malcolm Brown, head ot the
radio work ot the Publicity Campaign Committee, has organized a
series of lecturea to be broadcast
over CJOR each Wednesday evening at 8.15 o'clock. There will be
sixteen lectures, explaining the
value of the University in helping
the province to solve its practical
problems.
Among the speakers will be members of the Alumni Association and
other well known men.
The speeches are being transcribed and will be distributed to
radio station's throughout the province for broadcast.
More Response To
Student-Faculty
Teas Requested
Student-Faculty teas, held In
the Women's Lower Common
Room every Monday afternoon,
have been losing their appeal of
late to both students and members of the teaching staff.
Originally planned aa a means
by which students and their professors might meet informally,
the teas were launched last fall,
with considerable success.
Indifferent response of late has
threatened the cessation of the
teas unless attendance picks up.
Those In charge are Issuing an
appeal to all on the campua to
drop in at the tea Monday. Price
is only Ave cents, and tea and
sandwiches are served.
To date the club has brought
te the McOlll Union Mr. Weeds-
worth of the C.C.P. Party, and a
member cf the Liberal Party and
Mr. Adrlen Arcand, leader cf the
Canadian Paselst Movement. The
reason given for banning Tim
Buck, who was te have spoken
next Monday, was that It would
be In direct violation cf the law,
and that McOlll students were
above all law abiding.
According to a law of the provincial legislature It ls Illegal for
any person to propogate Communism in the Province of Quebec. Any
person so doing Is liable to three
months to one year in Jail, as ls
the owner or proprietor of any ball
permitting his building to be used
for such purpose. Any building used
for Communistic purposes or any
newspaper printing Communistic
material Is liable to be closed for
one year.
It was felt that the Students'
Council was guardian of the property of the students, namely the
McGiil Union, and in this responsible position were in no position
to Jeopardise tbe students' property.
DAILY OBJKOTS
Today the McGiil Dally is carrying a full account of the proceedings and stating that lt will print
the speech Mr. Buck would have
delivered in the McGiil Union as
soon as lt is available. The Dally
feels that the stand of the council
Is entirely Justified in view ot the
fact that lt would have been entirely illegal to have opened the doors
of the McGiil Union to Mr. Buck,
but at the same time the Dally
feels that the provincial government is preventing the university
from carrying on the functions of
a unlveralty—namely, It la forbidding people Interested In hearing
both sides of a question trom hearing the case against Fasolsm,
which case was so ably presented
last week by the Fascist loader,
Adrlen Arcand.
Bdltors of C.U.P., note that the
Dally will be glad to wire either
or both editorials being run tonight on "The Stand of the Students' Council" and "Freedom of
Speech Stifled at McGiil By Autocratic Provincial Government," In
which the looal legislature Is taken
to task for ita interference ln the
right of freedom of speech In a
British university.
2000 Meals Served to
Open House Visitors
At least 2000 meals were served
last Saturday evening at Open
House, oaf manager Frank Underbill declares. Biggest rush business
that the caf has had in many a day
waa reported, as long lines of hungry visitors waited for food.
In addition to the cupper business, afternoon teas were served
to a considerable crowd.
People Purloin Pieces
Of Platinum at Exhibit
Shades of Open House were cast
on the campus Thursday, when it
was stated tbat enthusiastic visitors walked off with bits ot valuable apparatus Saturday.
According to some reports, platinum tips worth at least $100 were

THE  8TUDENT   PRINOE
AN INCONSISTENT COUNCIL
Elsewhere in this issue of the Ubyssey a story tells us
that the Students' Council has granted student exponents of
Technocracy permission to hold meetings on the campus for
the purpose of discussing this subject.
The Ubyssey is in hearty agreement with this action
of the council. In fact we doubt strongly whether council
permission should be necessary for such a meeting. No meetings, whatever their nature might be, if desired by a group
of students, should' be forbidden, unless their intent be criminal. This would be unjustifiable interference with freedom
of speech—action incompatible with the word "University.
The University of British Columbia may well point
with pride to the fact that Tim Buck a few years ago was
allowed complete rights to apeak and to say anything he
wished on our campus. McOill would not allow him to
speak at all.
But McGiil had good reason for excluding Buck. They
had a provincial law to obey. They obeyed the law, and now
will undoubtedly try to have it stricken out of the statutes.
So it would appear from today's Ubyssey that we are
fortunate and enlightened; while McGiil students, though perhaps enlightened, are not so fortunate.
And then we look back, and remember that not very
many weeks ago our Council flatly forbade the Conservatives
on the campus, or the Liberals, or the Communists, or the
Imperialists, to meet to discuss their relative ideals and policies. Council had no Provincial or Dominion statute saying
that it should do so; it blundered along, trampling on a first-
class tradition of free speech, and mumbling something
about politics being a dirty game, and likely to have an evil
influence on poor young minds.
The council forbade the more orthodox political parties to meet. Bat It did not object to the Communist-
controlled Radical Club's existence. And now.lt finds Itself pleased with Technocracy. What sort of a council
is this? Until we realize It Is merely a group of mediocre
and unconstant youth, we might fear for our prised
freedom.
Of course, the members of each political hue in the
present Political Discussion Club ignore council and meet in
caucus. They are absolutely right, and, should there come a
test, they must stick to their guns.
The council has blundered. It is time the members realized it, and legalized in the Alma Mater Society the study
of these orthodox political creeds, which are accepted in all
democratic sections of the world.
A REAL OPPORTUNITY
The N.F.C.U.S. exchange student plan, by means of
which students in Canadian universities can spend a year on
a campus in some other part of the Dominion, presents an
excellent opportunity for U.B.C. students who desire to broaden their outlook. A visit to an eastern university, with tuition fees paid, is a privilege worth the trying for. *
Applicants for this year's exchange scholarships have
to be in the hands of the student president soon. Second
year students with at least a second class standing, who are
intending to come back to U.B.C. for their final year, are
eligible. There is no reason why a number of U.B.C. students should not take advantage of this golden opportunity.

PERSONAL JEWELLERS TO EVERY MEMBER OF THE FAMILY
•yALENTINE'S DAY may have
had no significance for the average blase undergraduate, but to
members of the Students' Council,
at least, February 14 was a day
when the tenderest emotions of the
haert were bluahingly unveiled in
the time-honored  manner.
Agent Q-33 of the local ogpu has
Just presented us with fourteen
Valentines confiscated at the close
of the last meeting ln Council,
which would provide Mary-Ann
with enough team combination to
All her column for the rest of the
year if ahe could lay her hands
on  them.
From a purely literary standpoint all the little gems are disappointing to aay the least. Several,
however, are marked by a certain
poignant simplicity of emotion that
compares favorably with the better
works of Burns or Wordsworth's
"Lucy" poems.
For example, we quote a brief
fragment addressed to Malcolm
Brown and written in trembling
feminine hand writing on a heart-
shaped scrap of foolscap:
"Dear Mai,
You're  such a pal,
Can't I be
Your Oal?"
In bolder masculine handwriting
and a more Rabelaisian vein is the
following quatrain (or Is it) signed
"A  Beating  Heart":
"Now Peggy Pox is pretty cute,
And Meredith's not too bad.
But  Mary  Black  —  Ah,  there's  a
beaut,
Fair game for any lad!"
Junior Member John Brynelsen
infers, however, that Miss Meredith
is a good deal better than "not
so bad" In a little lyric that appears
with the conventional pair of initialed and arrow-skewered hearts:
"Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
Pecans are nuts
And so are you!"
From your own little
Johnsle Wohnsle."
Moat of the valentines, however,
were just silly, particularly those
written by Carey. Here is one of
the inferior ones, to give you the
general Idea:
"Malcolm's a Bird,
Carey's a Fox.
Smith, he  Is  Black,
Vine, he is not.
We love you."
A bit shallow, we feel, but then
lt is still rather early in the season for the poets to be at their best.
In any case lt proves tbat the Councillors can turn their hands to other
things than floating bond issues.
Ah, as we often say, Spring . , .

■a"a"a ia-a—-a..a-a<^
By J. D. MACFARLANE
Today charges fly across
the Dominion of Canada which
practically amount to sedition
and incite to riot, plus insurrection and violence.
Whether or not the allegations of Tim Buck be entirely
true or not, there seems to be
something in them, for Mr.
Buck is, for once, following,
not leading, the federal parliament at Ottawa.
In  the  house  during   the  last
week,   there  have   been   various
charges running around loose, Including  the  one   about    Fascist
activities In Quebec in the drilling of forces.   Wednesday even-
we saw, also. In the Dally Province the allegations that wages
In the east were so prohibitively
low that manufactured products
of the west could not complete
with those of the east in the open
market.
Taking  the   last  item   first,  we
point  out  that  Mr.   Buck,   in  his
message released to the Canadian
University   Press, says:  "We   are
fighting for trade union organisation, and the advancement of living-
standards."
THUNDER OVER QUEBEC
Looking* at the revelation of
wage differences, not only from the
report in the province, but also
from the charges raised in the
house not so long ago as regards
sweatshop conditions in Quebec,
and then at the charges of Mr.
Buck we are inclined to remark
that perhaps Quebec's business Is
now Canada's and B. C.'s business.
In the last while we have heard
all manner of talk from Quebec
right the way down from Padlock
Laws, and the restriction of the
freedom of speech, to ideas on sectionalism and necessity of revising
the B.N.A. Act and returning to
a more decentralized type of government in Canada, with the majority of powers resting in provincial governments.
We suggest that It is about
time that Quebec got'wise to Itself
and remembered 'way back around
the 1780's and the Quebec when
French Csnada got a better deal
than any conquered people had
ever got before, or ever have
since. The French-Canadian was
given his equal rights, freedom
of religion, etc., and ever alnoe he
has been receiving a square deal,
a deal which was a lot better than
he might have got. And at that
time he did his bit by co-operating because it was to his advantage to do otherwise.
COLOSSAL IMPUDENCE
Now   that   certain   powers-to-be
see that it is to their own advantage to propose things which definitely lead away from the principles    of    British    citizenship    and
manhood,   they   have   the   colossal
impudence to take steps which endanger the  unity of Canada, and
which    are    definitely    below   the
ethical, moral, and economic principles of the rest of the country.
It is time that the rest of Canada stood up and demanded that
Quebec comply with the word and
the   principles   of   Canadian  law
and   order,   and   with   Canadian
economic   principles   as   regards
wages, standards of living, education and freedom of speech, or
be   prosecuted   In   the   Federal
courts for non-compliance.   And
if the means for such action be
not as yet present, then it is fully
time that they were created.
From the point of view of B. C,
equitable wages and  standards of
living   are  the  beat   insurance  towards an equitable basis of a fair
competitive market. From the point
of view of Canada as a whole such
things,   coupled   with   freedom   of
speech and better lower educational
opportunities and standards are the
best insurance ,not only for Canadian democracy, but Canadian unity
and   stability.
MR. BUCK IS CONSTRUCTIVE
Mr. Buck's demands for unemployment insurance, rehabilitation
of drought areas and stricken farmers, better opportunities for youth
on the basis of organized vocational training and university extensions are constructive demands,
and, no matter what he may say
regarding democracy and communism, etc., those ideas are of urgent
necessity  to  Canada.

CRITICIZSS   COUNCIL
Kdltor, The Ubyssey.
Dear Sir:
I am irked no end.
There are rumors that the Arts
'40 Class Party Is not to be at the
Commodore  as originally  planned.
Upon enquiring of the members
of the '40 Executive I find they had
planned a cabaret style party as
promised in our paaa syatem, but
that the Students' Council have not
approved of it.
Upon enquiring of one ot the "Tin
Ooda" of Council I find the Council
did not vote on the question but
merely "booed It down" because lt
"detracted" from the "Major"
class   parties.
Is this fair? The Council propose
the Alma Academy or the Palomar
as fitting for sophomores, while
only the Orlll will do for Juniors
and Seniors.
Sophomores, shall we be heard
on this question T Speak to your
favorite representative pn Council
In favor of a cabaret style dance
for the Arts '40 Class Party.

That Quebec has the temerity
to act as It haa done In the suppression of free speech In a
country such as Canada Is more
than collossal Impudence to the
Canadian people, especially when
they are charged wtth drilling
fascist men. It ia so outrageously anti-Canadian that it Is aa
bad aa a major Infraction of ths
criminal code.
Whatever Quebeo may think, It
should realise that it is only a
minor part of Canada, and that its
existence was only guaranteed In
the flrst place by sufferance, on the
basis of necessity created by their
prior occupation of Canada. It
therefore should tune Itself to
Canada, not Canada to itself.
It might also realise that here on
the Pacific Coast armaments are
rising for defensive measures for
Canada, and that, with present
conditions as they are, Canada demands an united front, and not an
eastern split of provinces. The
problems and demands of Quebec
are as so muoh chaff in comparison
to the real problems of Canada aa
they are best exemplified on the
Pacific Coast. Unity ia the one
watchword, and unity not only
within, but unity aa a nation with
other powers without, for the preservation of a nationhood which
Canada cannot hope to maintain
herself. Let Quebec chew on that
for a while.

Absorb Over
70f   Graduates
Carey Sketches Result of
Fee Increase/ Limitation
In Radio Talk.
The age-old argument that University of British Columbia graduates are all snatched up by American industry was completely refuted Wednesday night when Dave
Carey, Alma Mater prexy, made
the following statement over CJOR:
"Actually, between 70% and 80%
of the graduates are right here in
the province, and over 80% are still
In Canada."
Carey continued by stressing
the faet that the province would
be sadly lacking tn specialised
men without the training and the
source of supply which the university provides, proving hla
statement by naming prominent
graduatea In various B. C. Industries.
HIOH   STANDARD
Carey next drew attention to the
high scholastic standard ot U.B.C.
"Altogether, the university has
won $660,000 worth of scholarships
and bursaries. We rank higher than
any other university In Canada.
. . ." said Carey.
The Importance ot researoh to
the welfare of British Columbia
was illustrated by results obtained
ln the Departments of Applied Science and Agriculture.        •
"With finances and greater facilities at our disposal, a great deal
more work oould be carried on,"
the  Prexy  stated.
Referring to the part played by
students towards tho upkeep and
maintenance    of    the    university,
Carey said, "Actually, slnoe 1926,
the    etudents    have    contributed
•140,000.00 to the  capital  assets
of the university."
The speaker continued by sketching the probable results of Increased tees and limitation.
WILLI* OO ILIIWHIRI
"Limitation will not lessen the
fundamental demand for a university education ... in the majority
of caaea, they will go elsewhere.
The consequences of this would be
two-fold: firstly, they would, perhaps, permanently leave the province, and secondly, would be spending money on their education elsewhere, which we oan HI afford to
lose in the province," Carey stated.
In tbis connection the speaker
drew attention to the fact that the
university nets the province approximately $1,000,000 annually ln the
for m of cash returns to all sorts
of stores and organisations.
Carey oonoluded his address by
stating that the unlveralty would
welcome constructive criticism

Reorganization At
NC^estern
LONDON, Ont., Peb. 18.—Complete reorganization of Student Oovernment at the University of Western Ontario appears .' today as the
ultimate result ot the various conferences held in Winnipeg during
the last week of December.
At present the University of Western Ontario has what is known as
"decentralized federal government,"
with practically all powers, including financial control, in the hands
of individual councils of the various councils which go to make up
the university.
The institution of the central
body, a recent idea at Western, haa
already taken plaoe with the setting
up of a permanent N.F.C.U.S. Committee tor the preliminary organization  work.
The suggested plan ls to take
Student Executive bodies of McOill, Toronto, or Manitoba as a
model, and to replace, in the near
future,   the   present   weak   commis-
Bob Boroughs, in charge of ticket sales for the Musical Society,
reports that his campaign was safely ahead of last year's mark when
the deadline for the campus sales
was  reached  Wedneaday night.
Boroughs announces students tickets may be obtained on Friday,
Saturday, Monday and Tuesday at
noon hour at the Quad Box Office.
These tickets may be had only
by presenting student passes. As
there are only 1000 seats tor Wednesday's student night and 300
aeats on Thursday, students are
urged to get their tickets early.
The sale of tickets for the other
nights' performances are now on
sale at  Kelly's, Seymour Street.
ADVERTISING  EFFECTIVE
The advertising campaign, under
the direction of Jack Oray, has been
more extensive, more effective, and
more economical than in previous
yeara, largely due to the fine cooperation of firms throughout the
city and the amaslng efforts of
Jack Oray and his assistant, Owen
Sheffield.
Over 200 show cards have been
distributed   throughout  the  elty,
a commercial  billboard at Oranvllle Bridge, and two large signs,
at  Oranvllle  and   Ninth  Avenue,
and     Aristocratic     Hamburgers,
Alma   Road,  also  have been  obtained.
The     Hudson's     Bay    Company
have kindly consented to decorate
a show window after the design of
the "Yeomen of the Guard."
Something new tn the way of
make-up system has been planned
this year. Headed by Vera Radcliffe, the make-up artists are making charts and plans of each individual and his requirements before
the opening night. As a result,
more speed and more ease Is expected in preparing the oast for
the show.
VARSITY TIME
HEARS^SMUS
Sixth Varsity Time of the new
year went out over the air waves
Wednesday over CJOR, with Science the motif for the half-hour
feature.
A discussion between an Arts
freshman and members of the Science faculty brought to light the
values of courses offered by the
different branches of the Science
faculty.
According    to    Jack    "Spud"
Davis, president of the S.M.U.8.
and winner of the Swan Memorial Prise, the number of scholarships and bursaries won by  U.
B. C. engineer studenta surpasses
that of any other Canadian university. Today many U.B.C. grade
are   scattered   over   the   world
either studying or in the active
fields of engineering.
Nursing, too, won its share  of
praise.   Varsity may well be proud
of the fact that it is the first university  in  the British  Empire to
grant a degree in Nursing.
The program was given a musioal
touch by the selection sung by
Oordon Neal, tenor soloist of the
Musical Society. To all music lovers came tbe announcement of two
musical appreciation lectures to be
given by Professor Dilworth in the
University Auditorium on March 3
and March 21. Dr. Dilworth will
illustrate his lectures with the
famous Carnegie recordings.
So Varsity Time swung to its
finish until Wednesday night at 10
o'clock over CJOR.
Scholarships Offered
To Science Grads
Through the generosity of Siscoe
Gold Mines Ltd., who in 1937 contributed $4,800 for scholarships in
Geology, Mining Engineering, or
Metallurgy, McGiil University will
offer for each of the next three
years one, two, or three graduate
scholarships of the aggregate value
of $1,200 tenable at the University.
Candidates must undertake to
work on a problem connected with
the mining industry in the Province
of Quebec.
Applications must be made before April 1. Further information
may be obtained from the Registrar's  offlce.

U. B. C^EFFORT
U.B.C. students were congratulated for their fight against higher
feea Wednesday evening by Dr. O.
M. Weir, minister ot education, ln
an address to the North Main Liberal Association.
"I like to see these young people
standing up and fighting for their
rights—whether they are right or
wrong," declared the minister.
"After all, they were only fighting for their Alma Mater, and we
muat admire  them  for that."
Beverly  Oaten

Pub Will Operate
Check-room Service
Publications Board was given
council permission Monday evening
to operate a check-room in the Pub
Offlce during the Musical Society
and Players' Club spring production.
A nominal charge will probably
be made, and the money turned
over to the publicity campaign
committee.
Alumni Players
In Period Play
For Graduation
Drama of Sentiment
First Presented
One Century Ago
A period play whoae production
will completely reconstruct the
atmosphere in which it was flrst
presented, exactly a century ago,
is the Alumni Players' Club contribution to Graduation festivities. U.
B. C.'s graduation programme, one
of the most elaborate among West-
Coast universities, will be distinctly
freshened by the scheduled play
production.
London . . . 1828 . . . Lord Durham appointed to be Governor-General and Her Majesty's High Commission for British North America
. agitation against the new Poor
Law . . . Chartist disturbances in
the West of England.
Into this setting, one hundred
years  ago today   (February   15,
1838) the theatre-goers of fashionable London were Introduced
to a new dramatic vehicle.  "The
Lady of Lyons" was Its name* the
then rising Edward Bulwer Lyt-
ton Its author; Covent Garden the
theatre i Charles Macready In the
leading role; Helen Fauclt supporting him.
The play was an Immediate success;  and it was played as many
as forty performances consecutively in a season and almost until the
end of his  career,  by  Sir Henry
Irving.
It will supplement the settings of
a drama of sentiment which was a
favorite spectacle a century ago.
This year it will be played with all
the sincerity which made it so
popular in its own day, a fact which
should make It intensely amusing
to a graduation-week audience.
Classes Must Not
Dance In "Toney
.*'
Halls
Class parties, which oome under
the classification of "minor" sooial
functions, must not in future be
beld In the Commodore Cabaret or
the Spanish Orlll, Students' Council
ruled Monday evening.
Having such affairs ln these
places detracts from the dignity of
major dances, council felt. In future, class executives are confined
to second class halls; that is, any
place but the two mentioned.
Contributions of Aggies
Seen In Saturday Display
The agrioulture display at Open
House showed the publio that the
Aggie students are gaining sound,
practical training, are providing
valuable services for B. C. farmers
and are carrying on progressive research work.
SOIL. SURVEY
One exhibit portrayed the results
of a soil survey of tbe Fraser Valley.     Soil  maps  of  the  examined
territory will be sent to all farmers
ln the locality by which correction
in   soil   composition and   readjustment of crops wil\ be possible.
A very popular attraotlen was
Rosalind,    the    university    farm
prise    eow,    whoae    outstanding
milk production Is known throughout the provlnee.    The feed  ration  chart was of  particular  Interest to dairyman.     Rosalind  la
ons of a herd of thirty-flve Quern-
seys whieh  provide high  quality
milk to  University Area antt aro
uaad    for    student-training    purposes.
An   alfalfa   exhibit   ahowed   that
twenty    years'    research    work   is
nearlns Its completion as a hybrid
variety, combining a spreading root
system  with high growth has now
been  developed.     If a  larger  seed
crop can be produced, this species
will be of immense value to B. C.
farmers in the wet and cold areas.
FISH  OIL TESTS
The testing of vltamine D content of flsh oils was being demonstrated in the display. Results in
this research at the university have
aided ln the development of the pilchard oil industry in B. C. Herring,
pilchard and salmon oils have all
been found superior to cod-liver oil
for poultry purposes.
Demonatratlona of the "Agglu
tination Test" for poultry diseases   provided   by   the   university,
were being carried on during the
display.    In eonnectlen with this
Dr.   Jarvla  has  been   oonduotlng
research  work on  a vaoolne for
contagious abortls disease of cattle  and a  corresponding disease
In poultry and man.
The   B.   C.   cheese   industry   has
been  influenced  by  university  experimentation. The university farm
is  at  present using  10,000  lbs.  of
milk per day for cheese production
and three new varieties have been
developed.     D e m o n s t rations   of
cheese-making were carried on during the display.
BERRY RESEARCH
One of the forms of research
most valuable to B. C. farmers is
that being carried out in connection with raspberries and strawberries. For sometime there has been
a decline in the standard of these
plants in the province. Information which is helping to remedy this
condition was posted ln the display.
Two processes that have been
given much popularity in the last
few years were exhibited, namely,
tank gardening and solutions for
increasing the growing speed of
plant cuttings. Tank-gardening in
B. C. is of value not for a means
of greater productivity but aa a
controlled study of plant nutrition.

By CURLEY HARPER
BEEF
Well .here it 1st—the second col-
umnistic beef in as many sport
spurts, but this one's not about the
shaking, or raking in of shekels—
believe it or not)
It's all about a little club on tho
campus which is supposedly a fine,
functioning body of energetic, enthusiastic and willing athletes, and
which is supposedly aotlve in no
small way in tho campus sport
world—yea, you guessed it, the
Men's Biff Blook Olub.
But here's the rub ... this group
of able-bodied he-men have no
definite name, and no definite aim;
in fact, even the mmmbmra themselves can't tell you just exactly
what thoy represent, nor oan they
give you any specific example of
their usefulness on the campus outside of perhaps the momentous task
of ushering at some of the bigger
gamea at Varaity.
Now what we want to know,
especially after listening to Maury
Van Vliet's tentative suggestions
at the Biff Block Luncheon on Wed
nesday, is why can't this Club snap
out of ita lethargy, snd take Its
proper place of prominence on the
campus. Outstanding athletes are,
naturally enough, looked up to as
leaders, and as such they should
not fall through lackadaisicalnesa,
or indifference.
SUGGESTION
AU of which Is just fine, you may
say, but Where's a concrete aug-
gestion? Well, here's one that's
simple enough, but one which would
prove very effective if the Letter-
men got behind It.
Pack all the "B.C.'s", bedecked in
their sweaters, and minus frails, in
one reserved section in the campus
gym on the playoff nights in bas
ketball, and let 'em lead the howl
ing. Organized cheering, nearly
always conspicuous by its absence
at Collegiate tilts, could be, and
should be promoted in this manner.
What about it, Big Block members,
are you with us?

our jaw out any further in a single
columnistic bout, but the glint Is
still in our eye, and Dr. Sedgewick's
playful luncheon crack about the

the members were .. . "Big Blooks"
. . . still haunts our memory.
If we can squeese in the last
word, here 'tis: "Big Blockers, let's

of apirit, and a long list of worthy
achievements on the campus!"

Against Huskies
The long awaited Inter-Collegiate
hockey battle gets under way tomorrow at the Forum at 2 o'clock
when the highly touted Washington
Huskies meet the carefully preened
U.B.C. Thunderbirds in what has
been Ions publicised as the premier
hockey contest of a decade.
IN FINE FETTLE
With a highly successful practice last night at the cold deserted Forum, the 'Birds aro in
play-off trim once mors, and the
threats  of  tho Huskies fall  on
deaf oars as far as the Canadians
sr* concerned. With a large erowd
of supporters expected out to tho
flrst home  game this year, the
Blue and Oold squad is expected
to finish tho season with a victory   over   the   invaders    from
across the line.
Captain Hugh Shirreff will start
between the lead pipes, behind the
defence of Jack Stevenson, Carson
Magulre or Bill Lowe.
SMOOTH MACHINE
High scoring Clarence Taylor
will spark the flrst line, along with
red-panted Agg'e Paul Trussell on
right wing and Orme Dier at
centre.
A atrong second line of scrappy
Jack MacArthur on right wing,
hard-skating Marcel Guiget at centre and slippery Jim Ussher on
left wing is a combination hard to
beat for brains, beef and scoring
punch. Maury Lambert, hard working* Prexy of the hockey club, fills
in all the weak spots on defence
and up front, to round out a smooth
hcckey machine.
Free skating is in order after the
big game and Varsity enthusiasts
are expected to turn out en masse
to cheer the hockey men to victory
and then trip the light fantastics
on the steel blades after the ice has
been cleared of the pelts of the

Well, It stands to reason that a
quartette of distance men, in proper trim, can run two laps apiece,
and beat a team of eight falr-to-
middling and poor bunionists who
pound out a lap each. . . . However,
from a reliable sport source we
learn that proper steps are now
being taken to prevent such an
occurrence next year.
And we want to plug the coming
ice tussle at the Forum on Saturday. . . . It'll be well-worth seeing,
and add to that the pucksters'
ducats say "free skating" after the
same, then you can even bring Mcintosh and his thra lads without
feeling as though you'd gypped the
olan.

CO-ED
SPORTS
By MYRNK NKVISON
The Freshettes showed their athletic supremacy again, by winning
both tbls week's Intramural contests; 7-2 In badminton, and 20-12
in basketball. The victims in each
case were the combined forces of
tbe Aggies and Nurses. Behind the
outstanding play of Virginia Poole
and Dawn Qrlerson, Arts '41 had
little difficulty in downing the hooping "Agnus" who were led by Pamela Runkle and Mary Crane.
Tuesday's program featured Dorothy Herd as the outstanding shuttle artist.
HOOKBY
The annual field day held by the
hockey girls when the leading high
achool and women's teams meet
each other is scheduled for tomorrow at 2.16 at Connaught Park.
Both the University teams have
two matches. Altogether, 18 teama
will participate. To climax the afternoon's work, two elevens, representing the high schools and the
Women's League, will meet in the
feature game of the day.
Four Second Year
"Iron Men" Make
Sensational  Win
Marathon history was made
last Wednesday afternoon when
the Four Horsemen of the winding road pounded to victory in
the historical Arts '20 relay race.
Beating back the determined
drives of 48 hardy runners, the
representatives of the sophmore
Artsmen ran two laps each in the
Ions trail from the old Fairview
site to the end of tho mall, to
cop 78 pointa for flrst placo in the
annual classic.
ANGLICAN COLLEGE SECOND
A strong Anglican College team
pushed tho mighty Sophs right to
the tape to finish a strong seoond,
while Arts '89 pulled up in third
slot, closely followed by Science '41
in fourth position. Science '40,
Arts '41, Science '88 and the plodding* Assies followed in that order
to haul down 16 points each for
finishing the race. Since Anglican
College is not in the race for the
Governor's Trophy, third and
fourth place teams are scheduled to
pull down 00 and 46 points respectively to add to their total in the
race for the coveted trophy.
Breaking hard from the start, the
Arts '40 team ot Vance McComber,
Ted McPhee, Jack Rattenbury and
Bob Kincaid, pushed the leaders all
the way in the flrst lap, and middle-
distance star McComber was just a
step behind Alex Lucas at the end
of the long second lap. Kincaid
took the lead in the third, staving
off the closing bid of powerhouse
Ward DeBeck, who ran for Anglican College.
TIME IS  SLOW
Anglican College grabbed the
lead in the long grind up the hill
and still held a narrow margin over
the four-man combination of Arts
'40 at the beginning of the seventh.
McComber then took the lead from
the College entry and gave Ted
McPhee, the anchor man of the
foursome, a long lead that waa
never threatened along the eighth
and final lap, ending in fame and
glory for the winners.
The time for the grind was relatively slow, being 42.63, as compared with the record of 36.07. Conditions were perfect for the race,
and with Maury Van Vliet and his
Committee putting things across
smoothly, the general feeling
around the campus is that it was
one of the most successful gallops
ever held over the long historic
route.
Jr.   Footballers
Tackle Trojans
Saturday, Feb. IB, will see Varsity's pigskin toters tangling with
the league leaders of last term, the
Trojans.
The game slated for 8 o'clock at
Braemar Park will probably be the
toughest in the league for ths collegians and, as lt will be played on
a virtual rockpile it should be well
worth seeing. Braemar is situated
at 27th Avenue and Heather Street.
The tussle is somewhat of a
grudge match, the Trojans defeat-
Ins Vsrsity last term by a couple
ot lucky plays, and leaving the students with only a brace ot broken
collarbones to show for it.
There will be a signal practice
at noon today and everyone must
bs out.
Soccermen to Play
St. Regis Tomorrow
Varsity soocermen will meet St.
Regis on Saturday at 2.80 p.m. The
game ia an important one tor the
students as they have only four
games left in which to pull themselves out of their present low spot
in the league standings.
Seconds To Meet Royals In Tisdall  Cup Fixture;
Firsts To "Workout" Against  Byng- At Stadium
By BASIL ROBINSON
Varsity's Rookie 'Birds will return to the wars again this Saturday when they flutter over to Stanley Park to flap thier rapidly developing, wings in the faces of tho
New Westminster Royals ln the
feature game of another double-
header Tisdall Cup card at the
Oval.
FIRSTS PLAY BYNG
During a hectic practice session
yesterday, Captain Dobbie, that
man of astonishing brainstorms,
pulled another surprise move when
he announced the teams that would
wear the Blue and Gold this weekend. His pet and much-valued collection of Thunderbirds will be
given little chance to have their
plumage ruffled, as they will be
given the soft assignment of opposing the Lord Byng ruggers at the
campus at 12.30 Saturday.
SECONDS  STILL  IN  RACE
Thus, while the mighty Thunderbirds merely sharpen their claws in
preparation for the coming McKechnie fray, the fledgling 'Birds will
be thrown in against tho up-and-
coming Royal City lads. At the
present time the boys from "Sal-
monbelly Town" are in a three-way
tie for flrst place in the Cup competition, while Coach Dobbie's
Rookie proteges aro one game behind. A short glance at the standing will show that Varsity is still
in the running and a victory in
their remaining tilts with Westminster and Meralomas would put
the Blue and Gold in their old position once again.
Out to show skeptical grandstand
critics that they are worthy of the
change that they are getting to
cavort in senior company, the erstwhile Seconds are grimly determined to lay the Royals low. After
a bumper practice session held
Wednesday p.m., in which the powerful Thunderbirds did not have
things their own way, the team to
visit Brockton Oval was chosen.
Practically   the   same  line-up  that
lost to the Grads two weeks ago
will represent the campus In Saturday's battle. The only outstanding vacancy is Ted Madeley, still
hobbling around feeling the effects
of a kick in the back.
For those rabid rugby fans who
confine their spectating to exhibitions on the campus, the Byng-
Thunderbird game will be a tid-bit
worth seeing only if you like witnessing light workouts.
FIRST TEAM  MEETING
An important meeting of First
Team Rugby men will be held Monday in Arts 104 at 12.16 noon. Captain Dave Carey requests a full
attendance.

Awards Committee to
Meet Wednesday Noon
The Awards Committee, a collec-
ton of gentlemen whose duty it is
to tako up and consider the claims
of outstanding campus athletes for
Big Blocks and other recognitions
of work—or rather play—well done,
will gather together in solemn array next Wednesday noon to carry
out their annual task.
NEW REGULATIONS
Considerable interest is being
evinced in the Athletic awards this
year due to one or two new regulations—such as the impossibility
of a Freshman being honoured with
the signal distinction of a Big
Block.
Committee Member Lyall Vine
advises all sport executives to hand
in their recommendations for honours as soon as possible.

palgn, and the game today will
