 Green Roomers Start Four Day Journey Down 4Dover Road* Wednesday
Vol XXVI
VANCOUVER, B.C., FRIDAY, MARCH 10, 1944

'Dmer Road' Opens Wednesday Night
Thespians Finish
Final Preparations
•   "DOVER ROAD", Players Club forthcoming Spring
Production, scheduled to be presented March 15, 16, 17,
and 18, is rapidly nearing completion.
A ooraedy by A. A. Milne, "Do-      __________________
v*r Road" centres around an inn
kept by Latimer, played by Allen
Ainsworth, an eccentric middle-
aged gentleman with a flair for
patching up matrimonial mishaps
by forcing couples travelling along
the Dover Road to spend a week
at his inn.
There they see each other in
the most unromantic of situations;
He is aided in his nefarious
schemes by Dominick, Don Chutter, his perfect Butler. What happens when a husband and wife
meet at the inn, each with a mate-
to-be, produces many hilarious
situations.
EXPERIENCED
Allan Ainsworth appeared in
"George and Margaret," last
year's Spring Play. Don Chutter
appeared in the 1942 Christmas
play, "The Rogue in Bed." Norman Campbell, who takes the role

SPC Gets Knuckle-
Rap From UBC FBI
• SOCIAL PROBLEMS CLUB,
represented by secretary Roy
Lowther and president Betty Dunbar was "severely reprimanded"
for their infraction of Council
ruling in respect to campus publications, by the Discipline Committee at its last meeting.
The charge was brought against
the SPC when they distributed
their Poet-War Programs several
weeks ago. The Student Council
had ruled that those sheets should
not bo issued to tho students except through the medium of the
Ubyssey.
New Excute For Lateneu
'Dogs' Camouflage Tues.
t MEAT-EATEM ON TBI CAMPUS eaused shattered nerve* among
ptefHtoH at ranks laat Tuesday. Morning lectures were disturbed by
latecomers whose common excuse was that they had thought It was
Wednesday. An Investigating committee discovered that this was eaused
by the end of meat-rationing.
Students In th* usual morning mental fog saw a steady stream
of hot dogs passing over th* counter when th* arrived at th* bus stop.
Immediately concluding that it could not be Tuesday, they proceeded
to go by their Wednesday morning timetables, until reminded that the
hot dog is now on a six day schedule, and that Meatless Tuesdays are
as dead as a fraternity man the day after his formal.
May Presents Dickens
Program At Noon Fri.
• CHARLES DICKENS' immortal characters will take the
stage at today's LSE show, when
Clement May, British actor-humourist, presents several of his internationally famous characterizations.
'Umble Uriah Heep, improvident
Wllklns Micawber, Fagan the master pick-pocket, and "Christmas
Carol" Scrooge will make up Mr
May's Varsity program which ls
scheduled to start at 12:30 in the
auditorium.
Mr. May, who is an Australian
by birth, has achieved recognition
for his Dickensian characterizations throughout the English-
speaking world. One of his greatest gifts is his ability to switch
from one character to another ln
full view of his audience.
A master in the art of make-up,
Mr. May can alter his appearar ce
completely with a few strokes of
a paint brush and a change of
wig. Just as readily and without
apparent effort, he can assume a
new stage personality.
Mr. May's interpretations are
both convincing and compelling;
they have made him one of Britain's foremost artists of stage,
screen and radio.

THE   UBYSSEY
■Friday, March 10, 1M4
• From The Editor's Pen
«« »
But It Was A Good Joke
Anyone with sharp eyes could have seen
on the Commerce Issue's front page two
articles which, when combined, gave a
subtle pull to Uie collective leg of the Publications Board. We wonder how many, besides Dr. Shrum, noticed it.
We are referring to the paragraphs in
the editorial which criticized Dr. Shrum for
criticizing us and the story below it on Lt.
Cmdr, Stead, one of UBC's war heroes. Dr.
Shrum was criticizing us for not printing
more stories like that about Lt. Cmdr. Stead.
Dr. Shrum, informed by a member of
the Commerce staff that they were printing
the story as a result of his remarks, saw the
joke and his letter to us of last Friday
was the result.
We, however, could not see the joke
because we had been informed by another
member of the Commerce staff that they
had planned the story before Dr* Shrum's
remarks; and our editor's note of last Friday
was the result.
The two points of view naturally clashed, but explanations cleared up the matter.
Henceforth we shall keep our jokes on thc
inside pages.
Congratulations
While accounts have not yet been closed,
our chairman of the UBC War Aid CouncU
reports that students at the university have
overshot their prescribed quota for Red
{Cross contributions by almost one thousand
dollars-
Response to the Waiver Campaign was
most successful, and the many students and
student organizations that cooperated to
make it a success are to be congratulated.
Their efforts were organized, and their
arrangements were carried out with but a
lew hitches. A large bouquet of orchids to
the War Aid Council.
lite Waiver Campaign and the Red
Cross Ball were naturally the means of subscribing the largest amounts of money, but
several other smaller campaigns were not
unimportant. Every effort, no matter how
small or seemingly, insignificant ia worthwhile so long as money is raised for such a
purpose.
But the organizing bodies are not the
only persons to be congratulated. The general student body, we think, is justified in
feeling a good deal of pride in its accomplish-
ments. Without its support, no drive could
be a success, regardless of the plans behind
it.
If, for some reason which we cannot
foresee at present, students next year find
it harder to raise money for the Red Cross
fund, a safeguard has been set up for the
WAC.
At the beginning of the year, the Council pledged Itself to raise $5500. It ii expected that almost $7,000 will be turned over to
the Society. But next year, we shall not
be required to raise $7,000 or more, but only
the $5500 which we guaranteed this year.
A quick review of this year's activities
of the War Aid Council, therefore, reveals
that they have accomplished a great deal,
and they have our heartiest respect.
The Mummery
By Jabez
• RECENT publicity photos of UBC
chorus girls displaying their talents
serve to remind one that, on this continent,
the celebrity of a college of learning is largely dependent upon the pulchritude, amplitude and degree of visibility of the nether
limbs and other physical accoutrements of
its co-eds.
This fact has never been fully appreciated at our university.
Academic pursuits have been allowed
to overshadow the exploitation of our natural resources, with the result that LIFE,
LOOK, PIC, PEER, SQUINT, GAWK and
other distinguished magazines have completely ignored us.
The only notable publicity we have had
along these lines has been bad. A few years
ago, Professor Riddehough, a classical scholar, incautiously voiced the opinion to his
class that UBC co-eds waddled- The furor
which this simple statement occasioned overwhelmed everyone, including Professor Riddehough'. Down-town papers came out with
banner headlines, blaring something like:
"UNIVERSITY PROFESSOR SCORES
CO-ED WADDLERS
CLAIMS COLLEGE WOMEN
MAKING SUBVERSIVE MASS
MOVEMENT"
and:
"TWO-DIMENSIONAL WALKING
FLAYED BY GREEK SCHOLAR"
The papers were peppered with pictures
of   allegedly   waddling   women   students,
whose centre of interest was obviously south
of the border. The pictures', that is.
But much of the current apathy toward
our co-eds may be traced to the Canadian
habit of tardily aping the American fads in
everything from stop-lights to step-ins, so
that we are presented with the depressing
spectacle of our superannuated sirens running around the campus with reproduction
in their eye, wearing jackets that are too
long and skirts that are too short, which
they will doubtless continue to wear some
time after the vogue has changed to jackets
that are too short and skirts that are too
long, and which, in the interim, saddle them
with a beam that would make the RODNEY
blush to the turrets with envy.
There are, however, other approved
methods of glamorizing a college. One pop
ular way is for all the men to get together
and draw up a document stating that "we
the undersigned 15000 men of the University
of British Columbia, have chosen you, Miss
Carmen La Glupp, the Hollywood Pullover
Queen, as the girl with whom we should
most enjoy being trapped alone in an abandoned mine shaft."
This is sure-fire. Because, eventually,
the newspapers will come out with a studio
publicity release, in which we have a picture
of Miss La Glupp, pullovered to the hilt,
simpering over her outstanding achievements. Underneath this we read: "Miss Carmen La Glupp, (above), now starring in the
Monstrous Pictures Corp epic, "Three In A
Bed", will soon appear in the stirring sequel,
"The Mattress Murder Case". Miss La
Glupp was recently chosen by 15,000 panting
men students of the University of British
Columbia as the girl with whom they would
most enjoy being cast adrift in an open lifeboat."
The difficulty here, of course, is that all
the most attractive movie stars have already
been snapped up by other larger, more aggressive American colleges, (Columbia—
Madeleine Carroll; Princeton—Lana Turner,
etc.), so that a small, Johnny-come-lately
institution like ours would, by process of
elimination, be obliged to yearn to be cast
up on an island with someone like Edna
May Oliver, in the case of the boys, or C.
Aubrey Smith, in that of the girls.
Still a third way to dramatize a college
is to have an Extraordinary Professor in the
faculty: someone who goes on quiz programs,
swallows mice, or rides a bicycle round and
round a tank. Dr. Sedgewick, a professor
of English at this university, has a radio
program, but persists in using his time for
sober discussions of literature, and without
use of dialect. Until Dr. Sedgewick learns
to sprinkle his program with clever stooges,
door-knocks, and a swing trio, to acquire
some snappy sign-off, like 'so long, evubody',
and to blend his erudite analysis of poetry
with unqualified praise of some crispy,
crunchy breakfast food, this university is
probably doomed to float in the ooze of academic obscurity-
So, up the Can-Can Girls! Let the gams
fall where they may! But keep smiling, kids.
There may be a photographer in the house.

By DENNIS BLUNDEN
t I SUPPOSE it is natural for
anyone to revolt against being
shown the handwriting on the
wall in regard to one's own ability,
be it in music, acting, art, or
writing.
But nothing less than bounding
egotism would prompt University
students to Insist that they are
more than "passably" proficient in
any of' the arts.
With monotonous regularity
since the entertaining "lolanthe"
episode, people have been voicing
angry contradictions to the evident
fact that student endeavours in
the field of the arts are largely
on a high level of amateurism.
To contradict this fact constitutes a liberal boast. It displays
a surprising lack of modesty in
too many of our amateur actors,
writers, musicians on this campus.
If anyone can act better than
"passably" then he or she can be
described as "excellent." No student has appeared during the last
two years on this campus to justify such a compliment. We have
students who are good — when
compared with other students.
When compared with the professional world they fall into various stages of mediocrity.
MAYBE LATER
After a student leaves university and continues his career ln
a highly competitive world, great
improvement may be noticed, and
the student may take his place
as an "excellent" performer. But
seldom does such needed improvement take place while at university.
At university the overwhelming
majority of people are nothing but
amateurs—good ones at that. Such
amateurs can give pleasure to a
great many people, and on this
campus generally do. At the same
time they gain experience that
will prepare them for the long
hard climb to achieve perfection
after leaving college. But there
is no justification for describing
any student actor, writer or singer on this campus other than by
"passable."
Perhaps too many speakers have
been telling university students
that they will bscome the leaders
of the world, and this has manufactured a false sense of importance. What is meant is that students are potential leaders. The
raw material is there. It needs
consistent shaping and polishing.
RAW
The same applies to student
artists. The raw material is there.
But at university it has yet to be
shaped and polished to a fair degree   of   perfection.
If many of the feared "downtown critics" were to hear some
assertions made by various students lately as to UBC students'
ability in the arts, serious objections would be voiced to such unabashed egotists becoming the future leaders of Canada.
Happily, and I say this to clear
up any misconceptions that may
have arisen, most students here
do not covet the opinion that they
are leaders in the performing of
the arts. Most realise modestly
that they are to sonic extent
leaders in appreciation and understanding,   but   not   ns   performers.

In Fares
Refused
• NO   FURTHER   transportation concessions will
be made to students by the
BCER reports the transportation committee of Council.
The committee is nevertheless continuing its investigations, and chairman Dick
Bibbs says that retiring
members  will be replaced
next term.
The committee pointed out to
the BCER that senior metric students were allowed to travel on
school children's tickets, and inasmuch as no transfers are issued to
the bus line, similar concessions
should be made, to university students. It was estimated that this
would result In a saving of about
|19 a year to each student.
In reply the BCER stated that
the bus line is, operated primarily
as a public service. They claimed
that in the first ten years of operation tha company lost over 825,000
on tb/i'line, ^d |s g\[\\ operating
at a lpss,. The city lines are barely
making a profit, an,d therefore the
company cannot consider any fare
reductions at the present time.
The committee feels that any
loss incurred in the operation of
the bus line is the result of service to the University Lands, and
not to students. That is, the students are supporting the service
to the Lands.
Ubyssey
Rules For
Writers
• FOLLOWING   the   request of petitioners, the
Ubyssey is making a formal
request for student contributions, in the form of articles,
poetry, or fiction, and submits the following rules
which will govern these contributions.
The rules are general and meant
only as a guide to contributors.
Decisions regarding the printing of
all contributions rests with the
editorial board.
Because of the recent disputes
that have arisen in Canadian college papers, NO POLITICAL ARTICLES will be accepted.

TOOK FOR
About 1922 came the dawn of a great
new era in communications and entertainment. Suddenly the public awakened to the great new possibilities of
radio. In just a few months, radio
became a part of everyday life.
The Canadian Nickel industry, with
its mines and plants still partially idle
because of loss of wartime markets in
1918, saw an opportunity to find new
markets for Canadian Nickel in the
growing radio industry.
Soon Canadian Nickel was playing
an unseen but vital part in millions
of radio tubes and other parts of
broadcasting and receiving sets
throughout the world. Another step
had been taken in rebuilding the
markets for Canadian Nickel beyond
their wartime peaks*
Today Canadian Nickel is again
devoted to war purposes and again
the industry looks to the future
with confidence. Plans are ready to
develop and expand old and new
peacetime markets, so that the
Nickel Industry may continue,
through its own initiative and enterprise, to make still greater contributions  to   Canada's  welfare*

Conference Stresses Universities' Role In Canadian Life
University of B. C. Delegates Discuss
Educational Problems in Report
Part 1
TODAY'S STUDENTS IN TOMORROW'S WORLD
•   SIXTEEN DELEGATES of the western Canadian Universities heard Dr. Robert Newton, the slight, greying, erudite President of the University of Alberta, throw down a
challenge to individualism. Said the president: "We must not sell our democratic birthright
for a mess of bureaucracy."
In an address-which ranged over the whole field of education—politics,
teaching, finance, commerce, human relationships—he laid stress on individual freedom and decentralization of political jurisdiction. Here was
a western point of view, but one which should merit consideration in
every quarter of the Dominion.
Significantly Dr. Newton began
with politics. Here, he said, was
a study which should commend
itself to students ln order that we
might have a government free
from bureaucratic threats, and
have an electorate mentally equipped to assess questions of public
import Only through such study
can democraccy survive, for demo-
craey must be preserved. There is
a vast difference between control*
ling and steering. Hitler the
tyrant controls, while Churchill
the democrat steers, yet the demo*
emtio way has proven Itself super*
lor to that of the tyrant. Besmirch'
ing of politics is indicative of tha
uninformed and unschooled mind.
Dr. Newton doubted whether or
not collectivism could favorably
compare with democracy in
achieving tha welfare of tha people.
Nevertheless, government has become big business, and its many
ramifications demand tha vary bast
man and women.
HANDMAIDEN
Tha profession of teaching he
introduced as the handmaiden of
polities, but In addition lt accorded equality of opportunity. Ha
oondemned tha low salaries of
Canadian school teachers—half the
teachers receive less than $15.00 a
week. Dr. Newton was careful
to point out that the average pay
of western Canadian school teach*
ers ia somewhat above the national
average. He contended teachers'
salaries should not be scaled on
the number of pupils in attendance, and warned against federal
schemes to gain control over education. He favored the decentrallz-
ation of educational facilities.
Dr. Newton referred to Canada's
poor showing in the field of science
end technology. Before this war
Canada spent only 20 cents per
capita on research, as against
Great Britain's $1.00, the United
States' $2.00 and Russia's $3.00.
"Science," he said, "is a passive
agent in the hands of men," and
it is the duty of Canada to train
and use men with scientific education. The pre-war personnel of the
National Research Council he estimated at two hundred, while in
1943 it had leaped to over 4,000.
He posed the question: Can this
country maintain research at such
a level?
DECENTRALIZATION
In the field of construction and
improvement he again pleaded for
decentralization, saying we should
not look to the government too
Another Jingle
Another Man
C. J. Bennett entered this
jingle and it was one of the
close runners-up.
Yes,  Willie  rates her  own

much. He argued that if the same
local people who used public projects also financed and maintained
them, they would not be so inclined to make unsound economic
plans.
Concerning commerce, the president predicted a post-war world
criss-crossed by new trade routes.
Not only would Canada find her
trade expanding into China and
South America, but, owing to the
miraculous development ot air
transport, tha old east-west trade
trends will be an appreciable Increase In Canada's foreign trade
elsewhere, and ha felt sure university graduates would find
careers as trade commissioners and
as Commercial Intelligence officials. Training for these careers
would be based not alone upon
political science and cammeroe,
but also upon a study of foreign
languages and customs.
TRADE AND INDUSTRY
Ooing hand ln hand with this
economic growth would be, of
course, trade and industry at noma,
and lubricating the productive
wheels would be money and banking. Money, ha said, ls the key
to full employment, and he directed the conference's attention to
such pregnant questions as, the
adequacy of the money system,
the principal of debt-free money,
and the future structure of international finance.
Where, he asked, would Canada
stand with respect to schemes of
international finance recently
drawn up by Oreat Britain and
the United States? He answered
his own question by suggesting
any Canadian schemes would be
a cross between the American and
British, but necessarily more American in nature.
"HUMANISTIC"
In discussing human relationships, Dr. Newton quoted George
W. Curtiss, who addressed the 1877
Convocation at Union College
(Northwest Territories): "The
scholar, philosopher and poet is
a man among men." The president
spoke favorably of a course recently adopted by the University
of Toronto called "humanistic
social studies." This course is an
amalgam of the social sciences and
humanities.
It is to be taught not only to
students in the faculty of Arts,
but is a two-hour-per-week requirement for engineering students. The idea of this course is
to educate students to a wider
appreciation of leisure, as well as
show them a purely technical
training for a livelihood is not
always enough.
Dr. Newton saw no reason why
there should not be a course in
the history of ideas for specialized
students in every "university, .to
that education can achieve its
fuller objective.
The president approached social
security with all the wariness of
a man conscious of democracy.
To federalize and socialize health
services, for instance, would result
in the creation of an unwieldy
and dangerous bureaucracy.
He favored decentralization of
such services, and recommended
that medical and dental treatment
be placed at the disposal of citizens
on Ihe basis of their own popular
initiative. The Marsh Plan he considered only briefly. He was more
deeply concerned that such plans
did not override democratic processes inherent in the Canadian
system.
DISCUSSION:
The Manitoba delegation injected
into the conference the controversial issue of whether or not
university newspapers should enjoy freedom of discussing political
affairs at large. They maintained
that the papers would thereby ba
supplying students with additional
training in  polities.
The British Columbia delegation,
supported by Alberta, contested
this view, arguing that such freedom would benefit only one student—namely,   the   editor-in-chief
of the paper. They contended also
that most undergraduate editors
should, owing to their relative inexperience, be subject to faculty
vigilance.
One of the Alberta delegates, a
teacher-in-training, criticized tha
principle of decentralizing education as laid down by tha president.
But her view did not gain the
general support of the conferees.
Prejudice raised its ugly head
whan discussion turned to the
problem of relations between English-speaking and French-speaking
Canada.
SKILLFUL PRESIDENT
Some delegates suggested striking forcibly at tha Church and institutions of French Canada, but
the president skillfully piloted tha
discussion towards smoother waters. He likened French-speaking
and English-speaking Canadians to
black and white marbles which,
even when intermingled, never become homogeneous.
The British Columbia delegates
drew attention to the exchange of
students between French-speaking
and English-speaking universities
u a step in the direction of true
national unity. Their opinion was
heartily endorsed and subsequently embodied in a recommendation
adopted by the whole conference.
To be Continued.

Varsity And Pro-Rec Play
Soccer Re*match Tomorrow
• THE B.C. SOCCER Commission decided last week to
have the Imperial Soccer Cup game replayed between
Varsity and Pro-Rec tomorrow. This game was protested by
Varsity when the players became dissatisfied with the refereeing, and methods of playing of the Pro-Rec players in
the game two weeks ago.
The game will be replayed tomorrow under conditions which
Varsity hopes will be considerably better. At the last game Pro-
Rec used several players who had
been previously playing for Boilermakers.
Last Saturday Varsity defeated
the Pro-Rec Maple Leafs by a
score of 4-3. Varsity was down
3 to 1 at the end of the first half,
but fought back with three well-
earned goals to take over the lead
and eventually win the game.
SMITH SAVES GAME
Varsity's first goal came on a
pass from Fred Hole to Clem
Philley.   New life was the key
note in the Varsity attack as the
second half opened. Les Moran
found the scoring formula first
and sunk a pass from Don Petrie.
Herbie Smith met the test of
a good goalie by stopping a hard
penalty shot in the best of style
and hence held the Pro-Rec Maple
Leafs down for the moment.
Clem Philley then placed a perfect corner in front of the goal
and Roy McNeil nudged the ball
back behind the posts. With the
score tied at three-all and the
game nearing the end, Roy McNeil
came through with the winning
punch to give the Varsity team a
well-earned victory.

ORASSHOCKEY
UBC grasahockey team went
down before Ex-Britannia 2-1 in
a fast game at Memorial Park last
Saturday.
Ex-Brits scored one goal in the
opening minutes of the game,
while UBC played with three players short, and managed to make
another during the second half.
Marge Watt, UBC centre forward, scored the Varsity goal, and
two other goals went uncounted,
one high, and one offside.
Strict refereeing kept our team
on the jump throughout the game,
and showed that a little more attention to rules would not be out
of place in future games.

Frosh And Upperclassmen
In Final Tisdall Cup Games
By JIM SCHATZ
•   THE TISDALL CUP for English Rugby in Vancouver
is destined to remain on the campus for another year
regardless of who wins the two rugger games at Brockton
Point tomorrow afternoon.        -—_------___-_______.

Last Saturday UBC Upperclassmen had a bya while Varsity Fresh.
thoroughly trounced Rowing dub
82-0. The defeat for Rowing Club
was expected after the Frosh had
shown such overwhelming ability
over Ex-Byng tha week before and
the surprising opposition aafrJast
Varsity some weeks ago.
At half time the wore looked
very black for Rowing Club as th*
students rested with M points. Joe
Pegues, looking batter and better
in every game had a field dar with
tha aid of his team mates. Tha
last three tries wars aU direct
results of Joe's efforts.
Tom MeKuskor, Barry Kabush,
Jack Sim, and Bob Lawson ware
soma of the scorers and start for
the-. Frosh line-up.
Incidentally, the Freeh are She
highest scoring team in the league
in the past, three games. ffcer
have amassed IS points far their
aida against II for tha oppesMea.
Upperclassmen are the least scored on, allowing only 14 paints to
ba scored against them.
Frosh's eighteen points wars
scored against them when Upperclassmen defeated them 9 to I and
then when they beat Ex-Byng 21
to 9. Upperclassmen loosened up
fot their 14 demerits by letting
Ex-Britannia score S on them two
weeks ago, Frosh 5 points three
weeks ago, and Ex-Byng 6 points
five weeks ago.
Varsity Frosh meet Ex-Britannia
and UBC Upperclassmen meet the
struggling Rowing Club crew. The
Upperclassmen have not lost any
of their games in the Tisdall Cup
competition; Rowing Club have
not won any of their games yat.
Ex-Britannia have only one victory over Rowing Club to their
credit in three games, going down
to Ex-Byng last Saturday and
UBC Upperclassmen the weak
before.
TIE POSSIBLE
If Rqwing Club should throw
the Upperolaasmen for a fall tomorrow and Vanity Frosh defeat
Ex-Britannia, than there will be
a tie between the two student
teams for first place honours.
Both teams would have three
victories to top the league.
This seems vary Improbable,
however, in the light of past
performances ot tha four teams
featured Saturday afternoon. It
appears certain that both eampus
teams will and tha day victorious,
thereby giving tha Vpp*Mlessman
the cup which Varalty won last
year.
It was originally scheduled that
all the entered teams would meat
each other twice in the season, but
the shortage of time necessitate,
halving the schedule.
PROBABLY LAST GAMES
Since there are no play-offs in
Tisdall Cup competition, tomorrow's games will probably be the
