Visiting Actor
Will Address
English Class
fritz Leiber, well known Shakespearean actor, will speak to the students ot English 9 on Monday, Dec.
S, at 10 a.m. This haa been arranged
through the efforts of Dr. 0.0. Sedge*
wick. The occasion of Fritz Leiber'a
visit to Vancouver is to present a
repertoire of Shakespeare's plays at
the Vancouver Theatre with a sup*
porting company of 30. The management Is undertaken by Elbert A.
Wlckea, who is presenting the Abbey
Theatre Players of Dublin on their
American tours. Leyland Hodgson,
who ia evincing a keen interest in
bringing the better class attracions
on the legitimate stage to this city,
Is sponsoring the performances in
Great Tragedy
The opening performance will be
"King Lear." This is considered by
most Shakespearean authorities to be
among the greatest of the dramatist's
tragedies, one of vivid and forceful
contrasts. The Leiber presentation is
one that softens the baser elements
so far as they may be softened with
prudence, it is said. "King Lear"
has seldom been offered in recent
years on the legitimate stage in Vancouver. This is perhaps due to the

Family Analysed
Before Tbe S.C.M.
"The family is the basic human
institution although lately there has
been a clash upon the nature of its
development,'' stated Dr. Hugh Dobson when he lectured en "Family
Life", before the S.C.M. on Tuesday.
As a result of this clash, there has
come a realization of the family's
place. As an institution it is subject
to the laws of change and adaptation,
and with that change has come a
sense of disruption in modern family
life and its accompanying rise in divorce, annulments, legal and ecclesiastical separation, desertions and incompatibility. Public interest and a
study of incompatibility led to a revolt against inequality in the family
which is a product of the economic
systems of the past. In the time of
Christ, it was beneath a man's dignity to even talk publicly with a
woman. He taught that marriage is
sacred, just as sacred as sex or human life.
Emancipated Women
An emancipation of women so they
may share equally in responsibility
for the family came with the industrial age when women were given the
opportunity to earn their own living
for the first time. Then arose the
problem of how to make marriage
durable now it is not dependant on
economic necessity. Now we are in
a new age, man lives with a free
woman, and there can be no more
bullying. Spiritual capacity is the
only durable tta left. Christianity
bases its idea on the harmonious coordination of instinct reflected through
will, morality and emotion.
Budding playwrights on the campus
will be given an opportunity to win
one hundred dollars. The Women's
Canadian Club are awarding a prize
to the best one-act play submitted
to the Club headquarters before
March 1, 1935. Those interested may
obtain particulars from the registrar.
Majority of Students
Prove to be Pacifists
Nearly four hundred answers to the
questionnaire on war have been received. The work of tabulating the
results is not yet completed, but several general trends of thought can
be noticed by a quick survey of the
Despite the frequent "campus wars",
the student body at U.B.C. seems to
be overwhelmingly in favor of peace.
Aparently tho horrors of the Great
War have been so well publicized
that the glamour of armed conflict
has gone. Many students advise more
extensive education in the direction
of peace.
Some Socialists
Socialism is, according to a great
many students, one certain way to
stop wars. "In a Socialistic world,"
states one answer, "there would be
no war because there would be no
opportunity to profit on munitions
and war supplies." Very few answers
suggested Communism, and when
they did, thev gave no concrete reason for doing so. v,*&».
There seems to be a wide-spread
tendency to blame war on blundering politicians and statesmen. Popular opinion among the students who
answered favoured sending the war
staff and the government leaders to
the front line to bear the brunt of
the fighting. 'If this were done,"
wrote a Theolog, "the war would not
last long.
Last Day Saturday
The last day for filling out the
questionnaire wil1 be Saturday. A
final analysis of the results will be
publisheds in detail in Tuesday'

Japanese Lantern
; Adorns The Campus
The plans for a Japanese garden
| and lantern for the U.B.C. campus,
1 offered by the Japan society and Japanese associations here, as a memor-
1 ial to the late Dr. Inazo Nitobe, were
I accepted by the Board of Governors
at their monthly meeting Monday
, night.
Mr. Mayne Hamilton, President of
the Japan Society, and Col. Nelson
Spencer made tht offer on behalf of
the Japanese bodies, in recognition
of the cervices cf Dr. Nitobe in fostering friendly relations between Japan and Canada,
In Botanical Gardens
The garden will be situated in the
botanical gardens, just south of the
pond, and at tho edge of the University forest.   It will not be character-
, istically  Oriental,  as was originally
' proposed but will be designed to har-
j monize with the general scheme of
. campus  development.    These  decis-
I ions were reached after the representatives of thc Depts. of Botany,
Forestry, and Horticulture had con-
jferred with the Imlversity architects
; and the Japanese consul.
The outstanding feature of the gar*
den will be the  beautifully  carved
Japanese  lantern,  IS feet high and
weighing  seven  and   one-half  tons.
The light for this elaborate monument
will be contained in a six sided glass
compartment in a bronze frame. The
Inscription to be placed on it will
be subject to the approval   of the
Board of Governors.
Dr. Inazo Nitobe was one of the
most brilliant Japanese statesmen
and was a member of the Japanese
House of Peers. He did splendid
service in developing Japanese-Canadian friendship before his death in
Victoria last year.
Mr. B. C. Nicholas and Col. Nelson
Spencer,   visiting   governors   to   the
University last month, also presented
their report to the Board.   After visiting all departments of the University,  the   governor*, expressed  satis-
. faction with what they had seen and
! offered particular praise for the Dominion Forests Products Laboratory.
The Board also discussed the estimates for 1935-36 and expects to place
them before the Minister of Education upon his return to Victoria.

Canadians Offered
Chinese Scholarship
Prevost Henry of Lingnan University, Canton, China, has communicated with the S.CM. concerning
scholarships to be offered to Cna-
adian men in their second or third
year Arts, entitling them to free room
and tuition at Lingnan, commencing
Feb.  1,  1935, for one calendar year,
The scholarship is offered to young
men of good character who have an
interest in inter-racial goodwill and
who are of a good scholastic rating.
Many American Students There
At present 1hcre are eleven American and Canadian students holding
such scholarship-) at Lingnan, but
they will be leaving in June, 1935,
and Dr. Henry wants to have three
students who will be able to induct
those new students who come in to
take their place.
The rating of Lingnan u high, and
her students excel especially in natural science, government, economics
and sociology. All lectures are in
English. It is expected that no serious retarding will take place of
those students who take advantage of
this opportunity.
Low Cost
The cost will be trans Pacific passage (about $100 each way) and $450.
This wdl assure good variety in foo 1
and some money for summer travel

Four Factors
May Prevent
World War
"War is more imminent now than
it was in the early days of 1914, but
four strong factors insure against the
immediate outbreak of war." With
this statement Professor Soward
opened his address at the luncheon
meeting of the Gyro Club in the Hotel Vancouver on Monday.
Radio, Aviation, Communism and
Facism prevent any such outbreak *n
the near future. The first, said thi
speaker, has bound the world together, breaking down the former rigid
national barriers but strengthening
national morale.
Impound Aeroplanes
Secondly, he quoted one leading
authority who stated that the postwar airplane was equal to 400 of the
early Great War machines. Fear of
the destructive possibilities of these
planes and lack of effective defence
against them has prevented war.
Following every war both victorious and defeated nations have suffered under the inroads of on-marching Communism. Continuing , the
speaker maintained, that Facism
glorified war. But he affirmed no
Fascist government has yet secured
the full confidence of the people nor
among the leaders is there a first
class soldier e::-ept Kemal Pasha,
In conclusion Professor Soward
gave the opinion that at least five
years would elapse before any cf
the Facist nations would be ready to
launch an active war campaign.
during the '80's.
The Witch's Curse
A herrible curse had been cast on
the Baronets of Ruddigore which compelled thern to commit one crime every day or perish in agony. Sir Ruth-
ven Murgatroyd, Baron of Ruddigore,
after countless struggles contrives to
end the spell and everyone concern-
save perhaps Iolanthe can lay equal
claim. The unbelievable motives and
inconsistency of plot which are so
essential to the brilliance of Gilbert's
satire are softened by the gentle, elusive humor contained in Sullivan's
melodies, and the two are united to
form a very successful and entertaining operetta.
Third Symphony
Held On Sunday
The Vancouver Symphony will present its third concert of the season
at the Strand Theatre on Sunday,
Dec. 2. In its last concert the Orchestra proved itself to be a musical
organization of a very high calibre,
and one which deserves all the support we can give it.
Popular Numbers
The solo performance this week
will consist of thc Bach Concerto for
three pianos. Among the most popular numbers on the program will
be the Schubert "Rosamunde" music
which includes the ballot, and a composition of Smetnna, which Mr. de
Ridder reads with much sympathy.
Class '35 Hold
Their Last Party
Approximately two hundred members of the Class of Arts '35 forgot
their worries from 9 o'clock last night
to 1 o'clock this morning dancing to
the music of .Tuck Emerson's five-
piece orchestra. The affair was held
in the Georgian Womens Club and
was the final party of the class as
such, the ball and banquet scheduled
for next term, being graduation functions.
Robertson Crichton and Leslie Jackson, visiting English debaters who
will appear igainst the U.B.C. team
tonight at the Hotel Vancouver, were
present as guests of the class and
there were present also paying guests
who were not seniors.
Patrons and patronesses for the affair were: President and Mrs. L. S.
Klinck, Dean and Mrs. D. Buchanan,
Mrs, Sedgewick, Dr, G. G, Sedgewick
and Dean Bollert.
For the major work of the afternoon the orchestra will present
Brahm's C minor Symphony. This
symphony demands great technical
skill as well ns consummate artistry,
but in the preceding concert the orchestra adequately proved its ability
to fill the most exacting demands
which con bo made upon it.
"I have only been to three dances
in my life and those three were with,
Canadian Coeds.
"At Oxford tho idea of dating, even*
in the sense of taking a girl to dinner) is entirely unheard of. At Oxford Undergraduate wouldn't think
of going out to a dance.
"While there 1 only met two women
and one was my instructor's wife.
Now that I think back, I suppose she
was a beautiful woman. Really,
though, I am not qualified to judge
feminine beauty." These were the
startling statements of Robertson
Crichton of Oxford when he was interviewed by the Ubyssey yesterday.
Jackson Impressed by Co-eds
"You can take it from me that the
Canadian Co-ed has it over the English University women," that was the
pleasing pronouncement of Leslie
Jackson, socialist and representative
of Cambridge.
Both men agreed that women should
be allowed to smoke in cafeterias
and restauarnts after a meal.
No Self-Government at Oxford
As to the relative powors of self-
government, here and in England,
the Oxford man explained that College loyalty and tradition ruled. He
believed that Student Administration
and enforcement of discipline was
fine for our new and advanced modern institutions where the University-
is the corporate centre of activity-
However, he was equally emphatic
in his declaration that not only
would this not fit into the English
scheme where the College instead of
the University is the corporate centre of activity but that it was not
necessary and would fulfill no useful purpose.
Would Fight If Country Attacked
"When the resolution refusing fo
fight for King or Country was passed
at the Oxford Union, I was present
and spoke against the resolution because I believe that if my country
were actually invaded it would be
my duty to fight. The resolution got
through because the distinguished

Soothing Syrup
The gymnasium seems to be living up to
its notorious reputation as a veritable den of
thieves on the campus. If the value of all the
individual articles such as shoes, towels, sweat
shirts, athletic equipment of various sorts, and
even money, that have been lost in that building by students during the last three years
were added up, the resulting total would be a
It seems, however, that many persons do
not take this matter seriously, and it is probably to this fact, rather than to any dishhonest
intent, that many of the disappearances of
personal property should be attributed. These
persons have probably fallen thoughtlessly into
the attitude that anything that is left in the
gymnasium automatically becomes common
property - an attitude that would be proper
under the new communistic system towards
which it is alleged that we university students
are leading the way, but which does not agree
with our present acceptance of one's right to
personal possessions. They do not realize that
by appropriating another person's rugby boots
they are not only inflicting a financial loss
upon him, but are also causing him a great
deal of inconvenience and annoyance.
It is hard to see why one's code of ethics
in a gymnasium should differ from that to
which one adheres in everyday life. The only
conclusion, then, which one can sensibly form,
is that the individuals mentioned above are
missing an important benefit which athletic
participation offers to them • namely, exercise
in co-operative sportsmanship.
By Campus
Time in the Grub Dispensary
If it had not been for an unavoidable chain
of accidents I would now have been at the English 20 lecture I should have been at, and there
would have been no soothing syrup to agitate
your youthful minds this week.
In other words, it would have been of inestimable benefit to the University and to me
to-day, if there had only been a clock in the
Kaf. Why was noV the last year's valedictory
gift placed there, instead of in the auditorium?
In its present position, it only aids the low
type of person who rushes away from noon
hour meetings with no consideration for the
comfort of others, some ten minutes before
they need to depart. This is unnecessary, as
these animals proved themselves quite proficient in this sort of discourtesy without the
additional help of a visible clock.
In the Kaf, on the other hand, it would be
an aid to the presumable cultural objectives
of this institution, in that it would assist in
tearing myself and other romising subjects for
the professors of the amenities of life to exercise their talents upon, away from the garbage laden tables of that den of scanvengers
and into the elevating atmosphere of our lecture rooms.
Sumner's Surprising Snootiness
According to a stop press flash which has
reached us through our pal, the Campus Garbage Man, one of the prominent campus politicians who were shepherding Mr. Crichton
and Mr. Jackson, the recently arrived Empire
Debating Team, around the premises this
(Thursday) morning, considered the Pub Office much too low a dive to bring their charges
into, in spite of a pressing invitation from the
Ed-in-Chief, relayed to them through the aforesaid C.G.M.
It appears that the visitors were willing,
j even if not anxious to come.
Now, far be it from me to maintain that
THE JAPANESE QUESTION the Pub is anything but a shockingly prole-
The province of British Columbia contains tarian hang-out. Our decorations are ribald,
a large population of Canadian born Japanese
In the eyes of many people in this province
they are a menace to our national welfare. In
order to give expression to this idea they are
put under certain disabilities.
They are not given the franchise in this
province, although that right is granted to them
in all the other provinces. Witholding of the
franchise is no great matter in itself, yet it is
a very odious form of discrimination.
Why should there be such discrimination?
These native born Japanese speak our lang
and in many cases not even funny. Our personnel is vulgar, and occasionally not even intelligent. Our behavior is rude, and our habits are
far from refined.
Admitting all this, the conduct of the politician in question is still not justifiable. He has
demonstrated a surprising lack of candour in

MASTER WINS." Apparenly the McMaster athletes, after tremendous
struggles, defeated an invading rugby
team from Guelph, and hence the acclaim. Well, we will be willing to
do that much for our rugby club
when they manage to get the best of
a team from across the line.
The Daily Californian seems to be
featuring five column rugby cuts on
their front page, but they take time
off to report the results of a rather
interesting contest. It would seem
that two "national anthems" were
vieing for supremacy on the Californian campus, and a vote was taken
to determine which one should become the official university song.
Students in charge of election had
quite a time of it. To quote from
the report: '"Hum the two songs so
that I can see which ona I want',''
were typical requests asked of the
amazed pollmen who gladly obliged
all voters with snatches from their
favorite pieces."
Thank goodness we have only one
song to forget.
The Californian climate can't be
all that it's cracked up to be if the

"With the cold weather coming on,
many University men are confronted
by the need for warmer clothing,
without the means of securing them.
"Realizing this need, the University
Y.M.C.A. has made a collection of
used clothing, which will be distributed free to those applying for them."
I wonder if they have breadlines
for undergraduates too?

ada, and yet they are not given the same rights
that are accorded to Greek Canadians or German Canadians, or Canadians of any other racial strain.
We talk sentimentally about oppressed minorities in central Europe, yet we never stop
to think that unbridled prejudice may cause
such a situation in our own province. The Canadian Japanese may not vote, they may not indulge in certain professions, they are treated
with disdain by many of our educated white
barbarians. All these things they suffer, but
when it comes to paying taxes or fighting for
Canada is there any discrimination? Not at all.
The Canadian Japanese is quite as good as
his white brother.
Many uninformed people justify our attitude towards the Canadian Japanese by declaring that naturalized foreigners have no
rights at all in Japan. Here they are quite
wrong, as is shown authoritatively by Mr. Sherwood Lett, the well-known Vancouver barrister.
A Japanese born or naturaized European
is not allowed to hold public office in Japan,
but except for this disability he is given equal
status with the natives, including exercise of
the franchise.
If we in British Columbia want to show
that we are as enlightened as the Japanese,
we should accord an equal franchise privilege
to Canadian born Orientals in this province.
The Japanese problem cannot be solved by
ignoring it. There is a large and growing body
of Canadian born Japanese in the province. Do
we want them to be our friends or our enemies in the future? Naturally we want them
to be our friends. If so we must give them a
A Religious Experience
I was at an Oxford Group tea Wednesday
Not being of the Christian persuasion, I believe I may consider myself an unprejudiced
judge of the various antics of the many denominations that do belong to that sect. Much to
my surprise, I found this particular one far
less objectionable than I have been led to believe.
My pet horror, of course, in all cases of religious emotionalism, is the embarrassing spiritual grovelling of the converts who bare their
terrible past. It was very pleasing to one of
my sensitive temperament to find that the spectacle of inspired undergraduate infants digging
into their blameless milk-and-water lives in
search of deadly sins to be retailed in all their
gory magnificence was not to be presented to
my shrinking gaze.
Antagonizing assumption of morally superior meekness was also somewhat less intense
than usually found in the more serious variety
of Christian.

Final Paper
Of Letters Club
On Geo. Moore
Archie Thompson presented the
final paper of the.term on "George
Moore' 'to thc Letters Club which
met at the home of Dr. and Mrs. S.
J. Schofield. Sketching fully the biographical details of Moore's life illustrated by apt excerpts from his
autobiographical works, Mr. Thompson passed on tn a discussion of his
early attempts at artistic work. He
tried painting, poetry and drama before he found hi; medium in prose.
Perfection In Form
In his pursuit of art he kept two
ideas constantly before him. He believed that thc highest aim in art
was the perfection of form, and to
this end he was constantly revising
his work and polishing it; several of
his book? be rewrote completely after
the first version had been published.
The result of this exhaustive care
was the development through many
years of writing of the masterful
prose style distinct from that of any
other writer, declared Mr. Thompson.
He believed that the only great art
was objective art. Thus in his novels
he aimed to present his characters to
the reader and then allow the story
to develop from them without any
outside interference by the author.
One of the most remarkable qualities of Moore in my opinion, said Mr.
Thompson, is his ability to analyze
to the minutest details the thoughts
of his characters or himself, and set
down with such skill that the reader
follows a train of thought in his own
mind, drifting on in his haphazard
fashion from one idea to another.
The most important of his works
are: A Mummer'r Wife, A Drama in
Muslin, Spring Days, Esther Waters,
Oelebates, Tha Brook Kcrith, Memoir of My Dead Life, Heloise and
Abelard and Conversations in Ebury
His Greatest Contribution
It seems to me that mastery of
prose which he exhibits in these
books is his greatest contribution to
English literature, said Mr. Thompson.
He has attained after years of practice the faculty ol making everything
he says Interesting by the variety he
introduces, by such means as anecdotes and the unrestrained ideas.
This, with his ability to portray man's
innermost life, are his two chief
claims to greatness.

Dear Sir:
The debate at the Parliamentary
Forum as regards Japanese infran-
chisiement focused attention upon the
silent penetration of Japanese into
British Columbia and the possible
political and economic extinction,
within the next generation, of the
white people of this province. Figures relative to the number of Orientals in B. C. can not be substantial to any degree for the Immigration Officers havj repeatedly asserted
that hundreds enter illegally each
year because of their highly developed technique gained through thirty
years experience. Taking the figures
of the census which reveal approximately 60,000 Orientals in the province it would be quite in accord with
this illegal entrance to assume that
70,000 Orientals at present reside in
the province.
The rapidly growing Japanese preponderance with their prolific birth
rate and the declining birth rate of
the white race (only 1-3 to 1-4 that
of the Japanese) is going to constitute, wtihln the next twenty-five
years, a senous menace to the preservation of the white race in this
part of Canada. Euginists have declared repeatedly that if the white
race is to be perpetuated there must
be four chlldern to a family. At
present the average family of- moderate means has three, two and sometimes only one child. Our identity
as a people with a distinct contibu-
tion to the historical development of
mankind will bo lost for whether the
Japanese are enfranchised or not
makes little difference; then numerical preponderance will be gradually
reflected in their assumption of political and economic positions of importance. Racial antagonism will become highly intensified, economic
discrimination will become alarming
and menacing as two rival groups,
white and yellow, strive for economic
and political leadership. And this
result may be just what a Japanese
washlady once said to my mother,
"We washee for you now but some
day you washee for us."
Furthermore if the Japanese are
permitted to remain in this country
it is quite reasonable to expect that
within the next generation biological
assimilation will be attempted along
certain lines. And such a process
with two species so diverse, no religion, no language, no culture in
common, will be fraught with a mul
tiplicity of dangers., The implications
involved in this growing compact
group of Japanese in our province has
been realized by mora people than
tho Japanese imapine. We know quite
well that the diffusion of Japanese
throughout Canada would weaken
their cause immeasurably white on
the other hand development of a
strong, organized group in B.C. will
bring about the desired object: political, economic and social control of
the life of our province, A solution
I believe we muni deport the Oriental to Manchuru. and points in Asia.
Our future is highly jeapordized if
we allow them to remain. Only the
other' day a Japanese student remarked to mo that some day there
was going to be a war between the
white and yellow races. Let us look
to our own survival. Magnaminity
and philosophical idealism can not be
considered when the future of a race
is at stake.

Dear Sir:
The appalling statements made by
J. G. Hill in his letter stirs within
us Canadian .Tc.p..nese a feeling of resentment.
If Mr. Hill but consults the Canada
Year Book, he would KNOW that
the Japanese population of this province, according to the census of 1931,
is 22,205 and thut these figures are
based not on immigration statistics,
as he claims out upon an actual count
of the people of this province. Furthermore the Canadian-born Japanese
comprise 47 percent of this number.
Mr, Hill considers us as rabbits and
guinea pigs. 1 challenge him to produce definite proof that Japanese parents with a Canadian education have
as large a family as the first Japanese  immigrant.!.
A statement is made concerning a
Japanese student, I happen to be
the one who recently discussed this
same question with Mr. Hill. If in
his letter he is referring to me, I
strongly deny ever having made the
remarks which he puts into my
In closing I ask him to discriminate
more carefully in the future than
he does now between th-3 first and

will be able to present a more feasible plan than he does for the solution of this problem.

Dear Sir:
Mr. Shinobu Higashi, a member of
the Publications Board, has just acquainted me with the fact that he
read my article on the "Japanese
Problem" and forthwith wrote a reply which is to appear with my own
in Friday's issue. It doesn't saem
quite fair or ethical that someone,
particularly a member of the Publications Board, should have had the
advantage of securing this information before it is released and then
destroying its substance en the day
of publication. Similarly would we
be indignant if the Imperial debaters
obtained the material of our young
men beforehand and then employed
it to their fullest advantage on Friday night. The fairest thing on the
part of Shinobu Higashi would have
been to have had one of his compatriots write the article without
knowledge of my own work so that
neither side would have had an unfair advantage;. A thing like that
just isn't done.
Yours sincerely,
Editor, Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
The questionnaire on War published
last Friday, was of great interest to
me; but of even greater interest we're
the comments thereon made by sevj,
eral campus notables. Thus, M. Mather is reported to have said that in
war-time we "fight for self-preservation." ''When homes and families are
threatened, anyone will fight—it's a
primitive instinct," Similarly, J. Conway says that ho would consider it
his duty to engage in any war in
which Canada engages.
It would amaze me to discover anywhere (except Ln conservative Victoria) such noblo expressions of "patriotism." I had thought that such
sentiments had long since passed
away except in circles haunted by
Lieutenant-Colonels of the Indian
Army. It seems, however, that I'm
wrong. Progressive thinking has not
yet penertated to the leaders of
U.B.C. They still live on in the prewar mists of misbegotten Patriotism,
doubtless waiting for an opportunity
to prove that "Dulce et decorum est
propatria mori,"
That doesn't matter particularly.
The community would rustain no
great loss through the demisa of those
whose minds are so far astray. What
IS important is that the Provincial
Centre of Learning and Culture
should harbour people, especially
leaders, whose attitude towards a
question of prime significance is antiquated beyond measure.
By 1934 it surely must be obvious
to anyone who is not completely
blinded by stupidity, by ignorance, or
(worst of all) by prejudice, that war
is NOT for self-preservation; that is
is NOT instinctive for men to go into
the trenches to fight those against
whom they, have no quarrel; that far
from being one's "duty" to engage in
any war in which Canada engages,
it is up to every thinking person
(e. g. university students) to battle
relentlessly against those forces which
prevent young people from casting
aside the curtain, and disclosing the
causes of war.
Professors knaw of these causes,
but only speak of them in veiled
terms because they must keep their
jobs. A few students know, but their
voices are drowned amid the clatter
of caf cups us Rome prepares to burn.
And tht men who DON'T know and
DON'T care and WON'T be told are
those whose dicta reach print.
The causa of far is the Capitalist
system. War is an essential part of
that system, for without war capitalism in its present (imperialist)
stage is unable to exist. Imperialism
in any country of "Progressive" tendencies must fight rivals or potential
rivals, e'ther to maintain its pivscnt
markets or to pain new ones. For
vast markets art- essential if mass-
production, and its consequent mass-
profits,  are  to  be  maintained.
These facts have been proved beyond all shadow of reasonable doubt.
History day by (lay continues to vindicate them. And yet our Mathers
and our Conway* prate about "duty"
and "instinct" and "Protecting our
homes." The true enemy to our
homes is not (as these gentlemen imply) to be found in France or in
Germany. He lurks far nearer us
than that—in the person of the big
financier, the big armament manufacturer, and others of that ilk. He
is our real enemy. Against him, if
you like, we havt a duty to fight
for our homes ,ctc. But as regards
the masses in other lands we have, if
possible, an oven more important
duty—to refuse fiatly to fight against
them under any circumstances whatsoever.

Editor, Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
We wish to take this opportunity of answering the grossly
unfair accusation which was
made in the form of a scurrilous lampoon on our character
in "Dirt and Digs" on Tues.,
Nov. 27. We quote: "What Theta
was in who put the imprint of
her lips on an actor at Homecoming instead of faking the
mark with make up?" We regard this utterly unparalleled
diatribe as entirely in accord
with the mind of the person
who was for a time under suspicion of perpetrating the "Canyessey".
In reply we wish to state that
our affection is purely platonic
and that a lipstick mark means
less than nothing to people who
are of such lofty minds as to be
entirely above suspicion.
Yours truly, sincerely and

Those were the pre-depression

Japan Gives Her
Aliens Fair Play
The legal aspect of the Japanese
second generation question was presented by Mr. Sherwood Lett at a
meeting held Tuesday under the auspices of the Japanese Students Club.
The speaker dealt with the subject
under three hcadr — the statutory,
regulatory and the conventional restrictions.
The sum of his address was that
the second generation of foreigners
in both Japan and Canada were about
on an equal status in the respective
countries. But in Japan there are
two degrees of nationalities for the
children of foreigners. A person
born in Japan, (although his parents
are of European strain, ii he wishes
may after a great deal of trouble, become a full citizen in which status
he is entitled to the franchise.
In closing he pointed out the great
task lying ahead of the Canadian-
Japanese youths of this country, in
leading some four thousand rising
second generation children in the
public schools of this land to become
good citizens of the country of their
birth, Canada.

Canadian Education More Practical
A man goes to Oxford to acquire
culture and to cttain an outlook in
life. Robertson Crichton, who plans
to study law, states that at Oxford
the only law he takes is the Philosophy of Law, After graduation, he
has to learn the practical side of his
profession. That is quite different
from most undergraduates on this
continent. The majority here attend
a University with a view to increasing their earning capacity. This practical side of University Education is
gradually becoming somewhat apparent in England—though not at Oxford. In jrea: industrial towns,
like Birmingham and Manchester,
there are Technical and Engineering
tween something really humorous and
something which is just plain filthy
burlesque. If I were to describe in
good plain English just what the
three fan-danceri were suggesting to
everyone before them you would no
doubt refuse to publish my description and rightly so. But when the
auditorium is packed with students
attending a pep meeting u foul and
disgusting display, supposed to be
humor, apparently goes unchallenged.
If there were those in the audience
who enjoyed the act they have a

At present the players of the Handling code are preparing for the big
series of games to take place in the
Christmas holidays. The McKechnie
cup series is definitely on as well as
a series between local teams and a
team represent ing four American colleges.
Captain Roxborough and Coach
Dobbie are* having a little difficulty
choosing the team that will represent
Varsity in this series of games as
there are so many men turning out.
Several Canadian rugby starts such
as Kendall, Willoughby, Roberts and
Senkler have started to play English
rugby and have further complicated
the matter of selection. Watch next
Tuesday's Ubyssey for a full page of
information about this series and the
men that will play for Varsity.
The team for tomorrow's game is
with the school they attended prior
to coming to Varsity:
S. Griffen, Prince of Wales
J. Roberts, Victoria College
J. Burd, Shawnigan Lake
Strat Legatt, University School
Al Mercer, University School

half-miler. With his dark hair and
smile, win or lose, he'll be in there
with the feminine element at the finish.
Maurice Klinkhammer—Ran second
in the 440 at Tacoma last year. Also in
mile relay.
Bill Vrooman — The kangaroo element of the team. High jumps and
Albert Dobson—220 and shuttle relay.
Leo Gansner—Plenty good over the
3-mile route. Won the Arts '30. Does
the mile in one-third the time.
Granville Boothby—Blond. One of
B.C.'s best ln 440 and 880.
Jim McCammon — Weighs 215, so
what's a 121b. shot to him—hope the
building's long enough.
Sid Swift-Mile.

"All Western Intercollegiate Team"
Comes From A Sport Editor's Dream
Having patted various and sundry
members of tho Canadian Rugby
team on the back for making an All
B.C. team as chosen by the mighty
members of the Vancouver Daily
Province sports staff the pats have
to be re-distributed this issue for another all star team.
The Sports Editor of the Alberta
Gateway has with the co-operation ot
three other worthies from Alberta
selected "All-Western Canada Intercollegiate Team." In the words of the
Instigator, "Of course there is nothing
official about this team, the Idea
coming to me out of the general flurry
of post-season all-star team choices."
The method of choice was as follows: Three men saw all three western intercollegiate teams plays—Mr.
Ken   McConnell   of   the   Edmonton

Journal; Mr. Bill Broadfoot, Alberta
Rugby Union referee and Mr. Whit
Matthews, Honorary President of
Men's Athletics at the University of
Alberta and cot responding secretary
for the Alberta branch of the W.C.A.
The judges had a difficult situation
insofar as thoy had only seen Saskatchewan and British Columbia play
once and since they did not see those
two teams competing against one another.
The method of selection was as follows: all three men wers asked to
submit their choices to the Sport Editor of the Gateway. This they did,
nine men on the team got three
votes, four men got two votes each
and four men got one vote each. Making a team consisting of seventeen
men. 3y a process of elimination 12
men were finally  chosen.

Hoopers To Tangle
With Adanacs Sat.
Students Have Chance to
Win First Half of
Fervent prayers are being breathed
on the campus today by the hoopmen
and their followers. Tonight the Province team takes on McKenzie Fraser,
and If the latter should, by some miracle, surprise the fans by taking the
Newsies, Varsity's chances of landing
on top of the heap In the first half
standing are good. Of course, the
Students must first win from the
Adanacs, pride of the Royal City, tomorrow night; but that, according to
the boys, la all in the day's work.
They have won their last three starts,
and being mathematically minded,
they' feel that an even number of
wins Is essential (6 their peace of
Right now the boys are tied with
the Yellow-shirts for the top spot;
each with ten points. Saturday
night's game will put the winner's in
undisputed possession of the leadership. Even if Province should win
their contest with Doug Fraser's lads,
they will be one game behind the
winner of Saturday's contest.
Women Meet Maccabees
As an entree to the main contest,
Doc Montgomery's Senior Women
will perform against Maccabees. The
girls have been improving with every
game, and they should provide stiff
opposition for the Fraternity gals. If
they play as well tomorrow as they
did in the first half of their game
against the Province team two weeks
ago, they should win handily.
To top off this display of snappy
basketball, the Club has arranged another on the gym floor. The first
ankle bend three weeks ago proved
to be such a success that another one
has been planned. The admission
price is the same, namely 25c.
Team at Full Strength
The team will be full strength for
Saturday's game, which will be the
last under the new rules and the
best, until the new year. Jimmie
Bardsley, who has been playing good
enough basketball to attract fan mail,
will lead the Thunderbirds into the
fray at forward. The other forward
position wil be filled by Bill "Ducky-
Wucky" Swan, who, according to the
lady fans is going "just fine." George
Pringle will start at center, with
Tommy Mansfield, and Dick Wright
at guard. Art Willoughby, Jack Ross,
Jim Osborne and possibly Ralph
Henderson will be on reserve.

good basketball that the credit for
the victory can not really be given to
any individual. Bardsley and Willoughby did most of the play making,
Swan continued his fast breaking
game, Pringle got his usual three
long shots as well as a spectacular
overhead shot from close in, and
Mansfield and Wright provided stiff
opposition for the opposing forwards.
U.B.C. Leads at Half Time
The game started off with Haugh
sinking four or five corner shots,
while the students were still "warming up." Haugh continued his sharp
shooting to put his team in the lead
at half time by a score of 18 to 11, ln
spite of the efforts of Pringle and
Swan who wero also doing some nice
In the second canto Varsity sped
up the game when they started their
fast breaking style again. Quick baskets by Swan, Bardsley, Pringle and
Wright shot them into the lead before the Vacs gained a point.
Then V.A.C. started to go to work,
when Tony Osbcrne tied the count
with four foul shots, and the game
got so rough that bodies were sprawling all over the fioor every time the
ball changed hands.
Free Throws Look Dangerous
The lead see-sawed back and forth
with Ross and Bardsley matching the
Vacs basket for basket. In the last
few seconds of the second half both
Osborne and Haugh muffed chances
to take the game for their squad
when they missed free throws and
the contest was sent into overtime.
In the extra session neither team
had a chance to sew up the game until Willoughby came through with
his "sneaker" in the last 15 seconds.
Top scorer for V.A.C. was Haugh
with 15 points, while Bardsley led
his team-mates with 11.
In the preliminaries, the Senior B.
quintettes handed Spencers a good
drubbing by the score of 32 to 12,
while the Intermediates lost a close
one to First Baptist 22 to 20.
