•   The publicity committee for the
Greek letter Red Cross Ball is
planning a pep meeting which will
do justice to its name. It will be
held on January 22.
The committee Is prompted by
a two-fold purpose. First, it
wishes to give the Red Cross Ball
the finest publicity possible. Secondly it hopes to set a stylo- for
future pep meetings. Members of
the committee are convinced that
there Is enough talent at U.B.C.
to put on a first class noon hour
show, and they are going to prove
it. They do not Intend to enlist
the services of downtown professionals, but will use Sid Poulton
and his Varsity dance orchestra
together with a smart footlight
i«vu« of U.B.C. co-eds.
Orchids To Greeks
The committee Is so utterly sold
on the Idea that they refused the
services of Ole Oleson's Commodore orchestra and the Junior
League cabaret for the pep meet.
Orchids to the Greeks. The news
of a well planned pap meeting
comes as a glimmer of light on a
blackened  academic  horizon.
Pep meetings this session have
been notoriously poor. Rowdy,
undisciplined, unplanned and lacking in talent they have held little
interest for the average undergraduate. They have been thrown
together on the spur of the moment, their only source of entertainment being the presence of a
professional orchestra, while colorful acounts of their shadier side
have appeared in'the local press.
"Riot-mcelings" would be a better
term.
It Is good to know that an
organized effort is being made to
change  all   this.
Recent pep-meets have been
marred by lack of a good master-
of-ceremonies. It takes a terrific
personality to stand behind the
stage mike and hold the interest
and attention of 1000 students.
Such a personality is sadly lacking, net from 2300 students, the
Mamooks, who ore supposed to
take care cf such things, should
be able to select one for the job.
It ls the task of the Mamooks to
manage pep meets and manage
them well. If they cannot do so,
then the task should be taken from
them and vested in some person
or organization who can perform
It  efficiently.
Life Blood
Pep meetings are tho life blood
of the Alma Mater. They are the
prime source of College spirit.
They supply the finest publicity
and function or organization can
want. But if they are not run
properly they not only defeat their
purpose but injure it. Better no
pep meeting at all than one which
develops into  a  riot.

a University of Saskatchewan
Friday evening.
In an attempt to capture tho
McGoun Cup, which is symbolic of
the intercollegiate debating championship of tho four western Canada universities, Delany and
Munro will uphold the affirmative
of the resolution "That the recognition of a system of international
law enjoying a primacy over national law offers the best hope of
a permanent world peace." Then-
travelling partners, Bonner and
of the sum. resolution in Wlnnipe
Fouks, will uphold the negative of
the   same  resolution  in   Winnipeg.
Students will be admitted free
to the debate on presentation of
their student pass. Others may
obtain tickets from the Forum Executive or at the door for 35c.
The proceeds of the debate will
go to the University Red Cross
Fund.
Debating Records
Both Munro and Delany are experienced public speakers and
prominent Forum members.
A frank and direct speaker,
Delany has an extensive debating
record dating back to his high
school days. At Kitsilano High
School he participated in the
Inter-high debating aeries and
oratorical contests. A member of
the Forum sine, his Freshman
days, he debated for hla Alma
Mater ln the Vancouver Debating
League last year and twice a-
galnst the University of Washington.
Twice a scholarship winner, Elspeth Munro enjoys the unique
position of belonging to both the
men's and women's debating societies. President of the Women's*
Public Speaking Club she Is also
secretary of the Parliamentary
Forum, a position she has held for
the past two years. Continuing
her debating activities from King
Edward High School where she
participated in the Inter-High debates, Miss Munro has lead Forum
debates and participated in the
City Debating League. Last fall
sho teamed with Delany against
a   University   of  Washington   duo.

Training
% Despite the fact that the
Canadian Govt, has announced that Japanese will
not be called upon to undertake military training, the of
Japanese students at U.B.C.
will continue as usual, according to President Klinck
and Colonel Shrum.
"The Senate has made the ruling
that all able students must take
training and until that ruling is
changed Japanese students will
continue to take the training,"
President Kllnck stated.
"The Senate Is not likely to
make any change unless requested
by  the  government to  do so,  and
1 do  not  believe that  such   a request will be made," he said.
Colonel Shrum revealed that he
has not heard of any change in
the matter and intimated that he
considered that the Senate .is
completely responsible for any revision of the ruling a3 it applies
to   Japanese   students.
As the matter now stands the
universities of Canada aro the only
places where Japanese are taking
training. This is tlie only university where Japanese are being
trained in large numbers. As far
as Tlie Ubyssey could ascertain
Monday this situation is not likely
to   be   changed.

triumph before he leaves for the
Prairies.
Triumph Indeed It was. Triumph
when 1000 persons sat in hushed
silence, held spellbound while
John Glen as Darcy proposed to
Nancy Bruce (as Elizabeth Bennet)— proposed and was rejected.
Triumph as Art Hill, freshman
actor, fluttered across the stage
as the fawning Collins—and this
after a mere week's rehearsal.
Triumph as Lister Sinclair and
Margaret Morris, bandied words ln
their respective roles as Mr. and

Congratulations
Congratulations to the Players' Club.
On their own initiative, they revived their
popular and successful "Pride and Prejudice" in aid of the Alma Mater Red Cross
Fund. Thereby they made one of the largest contributions to the fund to date.
This production has meant a considerable amount of extra work and trouble to
mernbers of the cast, the business staff, the,
stage crew, and of course the director, Sid
ney Risk. Already busy with their usual
club activities in addition to their academic
work and (for the men at least) military
training, they took on this job from which
they gained no personal advantage. It meant
a considerable sacrifice of time on their
part during the Christmas holidays and immediately afterward.
Their achievement is an example to us
all.
Noise vs. Study
Noise in the Library is becoming a
problem once more. The only solution to
the problem seems to be more checking up
by the staff of the Library, and more cooperation on the part of the students.
There seems to be little attempt by the
Library staff to control the noise, although
the noise is perhaps not yet "beyond
reason." Audible conversations go on without check at desks right in front of the main
loan desk where sometimes students have to
sit when the Library ls full. At the top of
the steps, there are occasional social gatherings with all the accompanying talking and
laughter.
Those who want to enjoy themselves'
should remember that there is a Brock Hall
on the campus with large comfortable chesterfields and armchairs made for the purpose. They are doing no work themselves
in the Library and they are preventing those
around them from doing much.
As an animated conversation develops,
people around look up and stare coldly at
the offenders.   Some tap their pencils noisily
or hit the table beneath with their feet. Hints
have no effect, however, and rarely does
anyone venture to say anything to the conversationalists.
As well as constant checking by Staff
members, the students who use the Library
will have to co-operate. The great majority
do want to study, and except for occasional
instances, do keep whatever talking is necessary as quiet as possible. The few who spoil
it for the rest will have to learn something
of good-manners and of thoughtfulness.
One or two practical suggestions might
be followed to advantage. Why not have a
special table for the Commerce students
where they could all compare their answers
together?
And what about doing something about-
the popular girl who sits in front of an open
book all day at the end of a table, never
looking at the book, but merely waiting for
the boys to come by and talk to her? Someone please hint broadly that she would look
much prettier in a deep red armchair in
Brock Hall!
• The  Mummery  . . . byjabez
Shocking though it may seem, the
suggestion has been made that the relationship between the professor and his classes
is not based primarily upon affection. In
support of this revolutionary theory, it has
been demonstrated that the average student
is not desolated when he learns that his professor is sick.
For experimental purposes, an investigator entered a class assembled at the beginning of a lecture hour.
"Dr. Glubb regrets that he will be unable to meet his class today," he told it
quietly, "as he has been suddenly sticken
with pneumonia, cholera, rabies, and just a
dash of falling hair."
Now, it would be only natural to expect
that the class after a moment of stunned
silence, would file out sadly, with a tear
glistening in the eye and a sob struggling
in the throat. Was that the reaction? Not
quite. The windows shook with one great
shout of glee, the floor trembled with the'
pounding of many feet, and the investigator
was nearly killed in the rush of the happy,
cheering crowd spewing merrily into the
hall.
Cold Blooded
Most professors are keenly aware of the
cold-blooded attitude of watchful waiting
that marks their classes. A sneeze or a cough
will invariably cause their students to stir
expectantly, exchange significant glances,
and mor:- or less smack their chops in anticipation.
And many a professor has folded under
the strain. Take the case of Dr. Palsey
Sycamore Roundhouse. Roundhouse had
taught for 30 years -without ever missing a
lecture. Yet his successive classes never
relaxed the pressure, never gave up hope,
and, one day, he broke like an old shoe-lace.
"You'll never get me, damn you!" he
screamed suddenly, and stepped out of the
window which a quick-thinking student had
obligingly opened for him.
Dr. Hymenoptera V. Bluebottle, distinguished professor of entomology, buckled
up in a different way. The first indication
his students had that their campaign -was
successful was when he started rubbing his
hind legs together like a house-fly. Soon he
was taking up most of the hour by running
around the room, buzzing noisily, and flapping his arms up and down with great enthusiasm. When they tried to catch him, he
climbed up the wall and refused to come
down.
Finally they sprayed him with fly-tox,
and he died of shock.
Gagging
One of tho devices employed by the professor to reduce the vulture-like characteristic of his students is the "joke". And we
cannot lielp admire tho generous manner in
which university faculties give refuge to
the world's hoaory, old, superannuated gags,
furnishing them with an asylum as long as
they both shall live. Typical of professorial
titter-patter is the coniferous, or evergreen,
variety of joke. This species has life
breathed into it annually. Like a fine wine,
it improves with age, because the civilization
in which it was conceived has gradually disintegrated, and there is no possibility of it
being recognized by any living person, even
assuming that any living person would be
broad-minded enough to recognize it. The
only pit-fall which the professor must avoid
is the instance of the joke in a language
which has become obsolete.
Thus a story that made Sophocles roll
in the aisles will fail completely today, because of the barrier of the Greek language.
A live-wire professor can usually avoid this
mistake, however.
The only other disadvantage to these
perennial bloomers is the unpleasant case of
the student who repeats a course. Professors have wincingly passed many a moron,
simply because they cannot bear to have a
student in the class who will recognize the
body when the shroud is removed, and who
will subsequently inform his colleagues that
the pedagogic gramophone needle gets in the
same crack at the same time very year.
Co-operation
In all fairness, however, it must be admitted that most professors co-operate
whole-heartedly to make their gags a success. A short, anticipatory chuckle at the
beginning, and a full, rich guffaw at the end
of the story will usually supply the necessary cue to even the most lethargic student.
There are, of course, a few teachers who
neglect laughing at their own jokes, thereby
placing an added burden on the attention of
the student, who is forced to listen in order
to know where to come in with the required
expulsion of air from the lungs indicative of
satisfaction.
In any case, whether he adopts a Bob
Hope, Ned Sparks, or Ritz Brothers technique, the professor is obliged to ham up his
monolugue if he wants to convince himself
that the motionless, impassive figures sitting before him are living people, and not
merely the overflow from Forest Lawn.

•   Fast one-of-the-week goes to an
anonymous grad who is operating a Beastly Electric bus to help
pay feea for post-grad work.
There I was ln my carrell, he
told me, not doing a thing- when
a library official come sniffing
along the stacks, and came to a
swaying stop opposit. me. Where
is your stack permit? she husked
sepulchrally, looking like an
angry bookworm frustrated by her
mate.
I cannot tell a lie, cracked the
bus driver, I chopped it down
with my little ch-orry tree and
buried it with the hatchet. I
haven't got it, he added, just to
make   the;   thing    perfectly    clear.
For this drollery he was banned
from th-? library for six days, and
reminded to bring his stack permit   with   him   next   time.
Thwarted, our friend trickled
over to the bus stop. With a kind
<.f fchoulish relish he drove furiously down and back to Sasamat,

shaken, all passion spent. he

stones all day and only come out
at closing time. Last passenger on
board was the frustratee, thc
thrower-outer, in. fact, as lv. so
colorfully put it, the library witch,
or words to rhyme.
He saw her getting out a ticket.
Sorry, he said putting his hand
over the fare box. Sorry, but I'll
have  to  see   your   permit.
Well, she didn't havo her permit.
So that was that. She had to pay

Comrade X
0 When the blitz puts the fritz on Hollywood's foreign
trade the film moguls suddenly realized the lucrative
field opening up for political satire (democracy excluded of
course) and in due course offered up such opuses as "Ninot-
chka" and "The Dictator."
Along the same lines, but slight
ly from hunger is M.G.M.'s latest,
"Comrade X", currently running
at the Capitol. A parody on Communist ta Russia, "Comrade X", attempts to depict the trials and tri- '
bulations of an American correspondent (yes, again) to smuggle
out illicit stori.s of Kremlin
keepers.
Cast as the ace reporter is Clark
Gable, who should stick to drilling oil wells, while the love Interest is supplied by ecstatic Hedy
Lamarr, a motorman on a Soviet
streetcar. After viewing Hedy's attempt at comedy, we can sympathize with the aesthetic Gene Mar-
key.

Orpheum follows the lines of all
musical  comedies, even   to   a  total

fresh flower every morning-?" .shj
asked. A simple yes satisfied hor.

fashioned lovers of "plot" will
grimace  throughout.
As usual, Astaire is cast as a
happy-go-lucky joe with rhythm
in his feet, and disports most agilely with his "Dig It" number getting, raves. Stolid Artie Shaw
plays his clarinet, but lacks sincerity, and would have failed miserably except for his Concerto
number near the end.
Comedy is supplied by Charles
Butterworth and Burgess Meredith,
recent graduate of drama. Pauletto Goddard looks pretty as ordered, and even dances. Paulette
looks pretty.
Companion piece with "Second
Chorus" is a Jackie Cooler film
"Gallant   Sons."     'Nuff  said.

• Well, after the exam results,   I
figure I'd better start studying,
but I'll wait until after the Greek
letter Red Cross Ball on January
24, I think I'll go over to the Pub
and get a date for It. They've got
all the most beautiful girls in tho
U. signed up for the bureau, and
they give personal privates attention to everybody. Ordinarily 1
wouldn't take a chance on a blind
date, but since everyone is doing
It, I might os well, too. It's all
for the Red Cross. Josie is going
to patronize the bureau, too. Nol
that I wouldn't like to take Josie,
but seeing as how they're trying
to mix up tha Greeks and the
non-Greeks, we might as well get
Into the spirit of the thing. Josie's
getting a new dress for it, too, at
the Inez Frock, 880 Howe Street.
They're clearing out all their stock
to make room for new, so there
ana some real swell values there,
she tells me. She said something
about some Schlaporelli, or some
name like that, who designed the
desses. Evening gowns, woollen
campus frocks, too, and also tho
cutest, if I may quote Josie, afternoon  dresses.
* #    *    *
e I sure made a hit with Josie's
family over the holidays with
a box of Purdy's Chocolates, her
Utile brother went wild over them.
I thought I'd be able to have
aome of them, too, but he'd eaten
them all by the time I got over
there, the plgt I'm glad Joste
Isn't like that. Wouldn't it be awful
to have someone like that In the
family, though, maybe I'd better
follow up that blind date I'm
getting for the Red Cross Ball,
she sure Is a honey. I heard the
funniest story the other day a-
bout a cute dark-haired sophomore pubster, who apepared with
a pin lately. It belongs to a boy
that doesn't go to Varsity, and in
her lecture the other day,
a good friend of both the boy
friend and herself said, where did
you get that pin? It finally turned
out that, seeing as how the boy
friend had lost his pin, he borrowed his pal's to give to the lady.
Complicated, what? I quess ho
had to do some explaining, too.
I'd recommend that he do it with
a swell box of Purdy's Chocolates,
G75 Granville Street. Maybe he'll
be luckier than I was, and be
able    to    eat   some    of    the    candy
himself.

#    "C'mon,    girls,   SMILE
when   you  swing those
hips! and be SUBTLE!"
For three solid hours every
afternoon since Saturday, sixteen
of U.B.C.'s most appealing sorority
girls bave been experiencing tho
life of real, professional chorines
—practising like hardened troopers
for the big U.B.C. Red Cross Review to be staged in tlie Auditorium on Wednesday noon, January  22.
"Dancing for a  chorus is  not  all
glamour, either," the girls assert
vigorously, many of them contemplating stiff sides and tired feet
a little ruefully. "One absence or
tardiness and we're out—for good;
and we have real homework, too
—a couple of hours strenuous
work-out in front of the mirroi-
every night—dips and lacongas
and seductive hip-swinging and
then more dips, but,!' and almost
all thc girls are agreed on this,
"it's loads of fun, and we woudn't
miss   it    for   anything!"
Mr. Bill Corey of the Comtno.h.i'o
has    the    task    of    instructing    tlio
girls in the various steps of the
rhumba and tango, and what ho
thinks of saddle-shoes and flatties
in general is unprintable, as his
new pupils discovered when they
arrived at their first rehearsal in '
sweaters and skirts and rubber-
soled shoes. They wear shorts

lato closing of the* Brock Hall
would   extend   until   March   31st.
A few students have been making use of the hall to date. Considering that conditions in the
first week after the holidays are
unsettled, nothing definite can be
gained by which to judge the
popularity   of  the   new   hours.
Lumsden suggests that students
staying out for basketball games
might have dinner at Brock Hall
and play bridge until time. Possibility of bridge tournaments and
Carnegie recordings at night is
also   being   considered. <
The use of the hall at night in
future years depends on the success   of   the   present   experiment.

€> That he had any antipathy toward women students was emphatically denied by Professore F.

' Professor Wood stated that ho
was taken completely by surprise
when he entered his English 2
class last Wednesday and saw a
number of girls present. "For
years English 2 has been dlvded
into a men's section and a women's section. Consequently, when
I saw women students present I
immediately asumed that they
were visitors and asked them to
leave for that reason," Professor
Wood explained.
Girls who have a legitimate reason for so doing will be permitted
to atend the men's classes in English 2 this term just as they did
before Christmas, but those who
appear merely out of curiosity are
requested to play fair and attend
their   own   section.

behind thc news
(Continued from Page 1)
Up to this time there have been
no pep meets since the regrettable
farce last term In which Science
students gave vent to suppressed
feelings. The Greek Letter meet
will probably be the first of the
spring term. The Greeks are leaving nothing to chance. Rehearsals
are already underway for the one-
hour show. At the Homecoming
Pot Latch last October, students
proved what can be done with
local talent. This time their efforts must not go unrewarded.
The next pep meet must set a goal
for all future affairs of thi3
nature. It must be a core around
which future pep meets can be
paterned.
And students themselves, by
their co-cperation, can aid those
who aro making the entertainment   possible.

had another "unconscious" evening between the pipes, getting In
tho way of many shots that had
goal tags attached. The two counters which were chalked up against
Benson came from close-in plays
that gave the lean Varaity net-
minder no chance.
Entering the final frame, the
teams were tied at one goal apiece.
The Models took the lead after five
minutes of play on La Salle's goal.
Not until the twelve minute mark
did Norm Gill knot the count on
a pass from Jimmy Goodman. With
five minutes remaining, Jim Harmer went down on a solo rush and
let his shot go from about fifteen

session with the Vancouver R.ps
last Sunday afternoon and lt ls

All this toil is not only designed

Soccer B's
Leave Loop
Aid A Team
# It was officially announced yesterday that
the "B" soccer team has been
dropped from the Wedneaday league and that the orphaned players will serve as
a reserve for the third place
"A" team.
Stating that "there will be no
moe fooling around," senior soccer
manager Ken Eldridge hopes that
by the dissolving of the "B" team
the "A's" will stand a better
chance of getting somewhere ln
the  loop.
Four players of the winleas "B"
team hav-a already been moved up
to the "A's" In an effort to
strengthen the team. The players
are Hunter, Green, Hamilton and
Campbell.
Although the n-.xt league game
isn't until Wednesday, January 15,
workouts and optimistic plans
have been gone through to bolster
the team.
Eldridge also announces that
thoro will bo more promotions of
"B"   players   to   the   "A"   squad.
In this manner it is hoped that
there will be added the necessary
spirit to the team that has been
lacking in the past. Players on
the "A" team that do not attend
practices will be replaced by a
member  cf  tho   "Bs".
Practices are fcx.lng held on tho
upper soccer pitch, and notices
will be posted as to time and
particulars.    «•
