At a special meeting of the Alma Mater Society to be held on Tuesday,
November 21 at HAS a.m. in the Auditorium, Students will discuss participation in the recently launched campaign of the Canadian Red Cross
and the Vancouver Welfare Association.
Students are going to be asked to make a corporate contribution to
the funds of the Red Cross—and the Red Cross only—in the name of the
Alma Mater Society of this University. Students' Council feels that the
student body must itself decide whether to take an active part in the campaign.
There appears to be little or no doubt that the students should make a
contribution, and that the contribution should be well worth while. But,
as every 'collegian' knows, the idea of making a material contribution to
anything can often prove of the greatest difficulty. Cash is not a characteristic of any campus, nor, for that matter, is a charitable interest in such
eminently worthwhile organizations as the Red Cross.
This year, however, finds the students in a very different frame of
mind. Great Britain, Canada, and the Empire are now at war. Military
matters are now of prime importance, and the progress of the war by land,
sea and air is the subject of daily conversations.
In no less a way the Red Cross and its wonderful work has taken on
a new significance. Every citizen of the world is realizing the task which
lies before the Red Cross, and few can fail to understand what enormous
expenses will be involved.
The chief question to consider is how the student contribution can be
raised.   The obvious suggestion is student caution money waivers.
Every student pays, in addition to tuition fees, the sum of $J,00 as
"Caution Money." In the ordinary way the student, who breaks nothing
and who incurs no library fines, receives a cheque from the Bursar's office
in the following spring. If a student signs a waiver for a stipulated sum
the Bursar will, at the end of the session, take all monies needed for regular
fines, and will then turn over the remainder to the Red Cross Fund.
ln past years the caution money waiver system has been used for various funds. The most recent was for the Student Campaign Committee
Funds, and for this cause the students indirectly gave some $1,500.00.
The Red Crois is a cause above causes. Every student can give, and
every student should be given the opportunity of giving.
No system exists which would excel the waiver scheme. The A.M.S.
contribution would be _>/ sizeable proportions, the students would be making an actual sacrifice of money which might at some time be theirs, and
the Red Cross with its indispensable work will benefit correspondingly.

Blackout ln early evening, with the
streets orowded, with pubs and oafes
boisterous and cheerful, has a spice
of oddity and adventure. An unfamiliar pub can be detected, perhaps,
by the quality of the voices heard
Inside: raucous.
Find a doorway; grope for the divided canvas flap; push lt aside, find
the door handle; pull or push the
curtained door; likely there Is a third
curtain; brush lt aside, narrow your
eyes against the harsh light; you
have arrived. It may be the place you
thought lt was, or lt may not. In any
case, if it haa a dartboard and a potted palm, and wet rings from wet
glasses on bare wooden tables, It is a
real Bnglish pub and as such should
furnish lively Cockney entertainment.
In this setting we once met a stout
lady named Mary. Her man had been
called up, her children evacuated
into the country; and Mary, fat as a
pig and shining like the sun, was
celebrating her new-found freedom.
She sang, In a rasping voice, about
her Orey-Halr'd Mother, ao loudly as
to prevent any private conversation
whatever; then a Uttle ditty, 'She's a
Most Immoral LI-dy', (repeat three
limes); then, sitting down rather suddenly, she addressed the company at
'Know wot I think abaht 'Itler?'
'Nah, Mary, wot ls It?'
Mary shut her eyes and swelled her
shining cheeks and blasted forth the
loudest, lewdest, rudest razzberry that
anybody, anywhere, has ever heard.
But blackout after midnight is different again. It loses its attractive
novelty and becomes eerie, dead, and
a Uttle terrifying. Leave, aay, the
Cafe Royal with its Regency elegance,
Its motley clientele of aristocrats, unkempt Intellectuals, and theatrical
young men with painted finger nails;
and walk honfb to West Kensington
by way of Piccadilly, Knightsbrldge,
and the High Street.
Be prepared for rough weather.
Every kerb you overlook will Jar you
from heels to skull. Yu. --.Ill make
apologies to pillar boxes. You will
stumble over sandbags lying ln uncompleted rows. Vou will have serious
doubts as to yoi)r position, and direction. A match may flare up at your
shoulder, and, startled, you Jump
back from an unshaven mask with
heavy-lidded eyes staring at you,
where some patrol or watchman
lights a  cigarette.
Sometimes you sense a darker form
along the sandbags, someone sleeping.
You wonder about the men who stood
ln silent file one night ln August, by
the Admiralty Arch ln Trafalgar
Square. A little travelling soup-kitchen on a trailer, the 'Silver Lady',
was drawn up by the kerb and brightly Ut. Seventy, eighty men, ragged,
indistinguishable, waited in line. Vou
would not likely have seen them near
there ln the daytime. Some of them
who had been served stood under the
darkened archways, tearing at hunks
of bread, facing away from the street.
A woman, toothless and horrible, giggled vaguely ln the arms of a burly
figure hidden in shadow. Where these
people have gone, what they are doing on nights like these, you wonder.
In Kensington Park are massed tlie
great trees, more reassuring and
friendly than roads and buildings.
Night ln a forest is likely less alarming than in a darkened city, where
the blind and huddled houses picture
the gloom of an order upset.

Must Sacrifice Aims
To Achieve Real
National Unity
"National unity, Uke peace, is the
aspiration of everyone. But any striving for national unity which neglected other aims—Just like any pursuit
of peace which neglected other Ideals
—would be  the action of a fanatic
rather than that ot a good cltlsen."
These were the words of Professor
H. F. Angus, head of the Department  of   Economics   and   western
representative  of  the  Royal  Commission on provincial-dominion relationship, as he addressed representatives of oampus organisations
at a meeting of the Canadian Student Assembly In Arts 100 yesterday
Professor Angus stated that he had
been impressed by the fact that the
most conscientious of people oftejf
tried to shelter some other aim which
they had at heart under the prestige
of the name "National Unity".
By   doing  this,   he   said,   they   are
asking  for  National Unity  on  their
own   terms   without   respecting    the
wishes of other factions.
"We aU of us have to face very
squarely the question of what alms
we are prepared to sacrifice, and it
may help us to see what others are
sacrificing." The speaker gave as
ah example, the attitude of French
Canada ln the last provincial election. He stated lt as his belief that
while the French Canadians would
have preferred to
"an Insistence on
have provoked a
crisis in Canada and would have Involved asking other Canadians to sacrifice Ideals to which they were profoundly attached."
He also cited example of sacrifices
made by English-speaking Canada in
the field of patience in not imposing
social and political Ideals on French
"I have set you no easy problem,"
he concluded, "but the problem, If
hard, is worth attacking, for if you
solve it you will have gone a very
long way towards understanding the

Contribution Meets
Student Opinion
1   Discussion of New Undertaking
Open to AH Students at
A. M. S. Meeting Tuesday
Expressions of opinion In favor of the recently Initiated drive
for a campus contribution through caution money waivers to tho
Rod Cross have been pouring into the Ubyssey offices during th©
last two days as prominent personages from every part of the campus claimed that the campaign would be "A great opportunity!"
or "One of the finest things we've done yet."
Representative students and professors from every branch of
University life, when questioned by Ubyssey as to their opinions,
were enthusiastically behind the latest proposal from Students'
Council—that students make an actual contribution of money to
the Red Cross in the name of the Alma Mater Society.
Every student will be given an opportunity to express his
views on the issue when the Alma Mater Society meets in the auditorium next Tuesday noon. This special meeting has been called
for the express purpose of discussing the new project before voting
on it.
But if a campus-wide survey, conducted by Ubyssey yesterday, means anything, the proposal will be met with exuberant
approval. Scouring-*nll corner* of the campus, peering ™ht *ever3r
nook and cranny of the Caf, the Common Rooms and everywhere,
Ubyssey representatives put the same question to all and sundry.
"What do you think about this plan to have the Alma Mater
Society donate a sum of money to the Red Cross through the signing of waivers?"
Restriction Of
Freedom Topic
Of Debate
Last Open Fall
Meeting of
The Parliamentary Forum will hold
Its final open session for the Fall
Term ln Arta 100 today at noon when
they throw open for discussion the
resolution "That this house Is opposed to any measures, implied or real,
tending towards the restriction of
r.cademic freedom In the U.B.C."
Leaders of the debate today will be
Frank Wiggs and Mervyn Davis, both
veteran speakers of the club. Dr. A.
W. Currle of the Department of Commerce will act as guest chairman. At
the close of the leading speeches the
Forum will be thrown open as usual
to all members of the audience.
The debate today ls of special significance, according to Bernard Reed,
president, as It marks the last opportunity for members of the club to
earn a mark of distinction as debaters thus making themselves automatically eligible as candidates for
the McOowan debate scheduled for
January 19th.
The McOowan Debate is one of the
two major events ln the programme
of Parliamentary Forum each year,
the other being the East-West debate
during the fall term which was cancelled this year owing to the war.
The McOowan debate, however, will
take place as usual, with the U. of
Saskatchewan and U.B.C. exchanging
teams and the subject being debated
simultaneously in both Saskatoon
and Vancouver.
The subject this year, which came
over the wires only yesterday, is "Resolved that a United States of Europe
at the conclusion of this war would
be conducive to world peace.
Other tentative plaits on the programme of the Club include debates
against the U. of California, U. of
Washington and Victoria Normal
'   Pub Council Fracas
Set For Wednesday
Yah, sissies I Yuh can't take lt,
In the usual far-sighted manner
characteristic of Students' Council,
said Council has requeated that the
annual Pub-Council basketball shee-
bang be postponed from noon after
the Arts-Aggie (today) until some
Innocuous time at the middle of next
week, to wit, Wednesday noon (date:
Nov. 32, at 13.30).
Mr. J. O. Harmer, one of the tin
gods reposing in the upper regions of
the auditorium building, has written
pubsters to mention specifically the
necessity of recuperating from the
great Ball, placing the onus on us,
the great campus scribes, in the usual
queer logic common to dictators.
Although pubsters are better men
than that and do not require such
molly-coddling to recuperate from
even a super-colossal event like the
Arts-Aggie, lt ls evident that the delay will be necessary to give the tin
gods an even break with their hereditary foes, the scribes. Therefore,
like Professor Irving, we think that
that ls a good thing.
Actually, we must say that Mr.
Harmer signs himself "yours ln continued anticipation" and F.S.'s his
epistle, "The gymnasium will be in
use on Friday at noon." We are all
for anticipation, which is also a good
We hope you too are still anticipating this super, tremendous, amazing,
colossal, magnificent and totally Inimitable fracas, even ln the midst of
this  latest  campus   "war   of   nerves".
John Pearson, President of the Alma
' Mater Society; "By thia move we
can set an outstanding example
for the rest of the province to follow; and, at the same time, add
another achievement to the long
list of previous oampus accomplishments. I say sign the waivers
by all means."
Rvan apRoberts, AM.S. Treasurer)
"I feel the students should not regard this as a donation to charity
but as a gift to their oountry."
Jim Harmer, Men's Athletlo Rep. i
"Students should assist the Red
Cross to the utmost of their ability. Their best oourse of aotlon Is
through the  signing of waivers."
Charlie Nashi "The average student
does not usually give much to suoh
organizations, and at this time the
Red Cross is most deserving:
therefore I think it a very good
idea that we support It by signing
the waivers."
Jean  Pratt,  Seoretary of Aggie Un-
"The Battle of the Stench-
ery" between the Pub and Students Counoil, formerly scheduled for today, has been postponed till Wednesday, November 22, at 12.30 on request of

The college journalist has been described as a nonc-too-happy
combination of ultra-conservatism and ultra-radicalism. Some
time last* year the New Yorker, journal of supersophisticated
Americans described this phenomenon thus: they (college newspapers) are the real liberal journals of the country because their
editors are twenty-one. At twenty-one an editor has the lovely
tart quality of the unripe. Socially he is conservative—more conservative probably than he will ever be, but editorially he is a
rainbow of radical thought, largely, we believe, because of the
sudden organistic pleasure of literary expression. Ho has a distinctive literary style instantly recognizable: a kind of pedantic
sarcasm. Tho first flush of printer's ink is like wine: that is why
campus papers aro so alive and why they cause deans so much
acute distress worse than cramps of the stomach.
The seemingly glib comment reveals, upon closer scrutiny,
an amazing amount of truth. There is a marked tendency of some
undergraduate newspapers to tackle current events in a big way.
It is especially evident that editorial writers are prepared to go
out on a limb at all times. That promise is borne out by the recent
survey sponsored by tho Princetonion on American neutrality. The
survey disclosed the fact that "hardly a college paper in the country had not backed neutrality in its editorial columns."
Time was, in the days of Joe College and Betty Co-Ed, when
the college newspaper (so-called) was the prime vehicle for smutty
jokes and sexy innuendos. With the passing of the "collegiate",
era, the college editor has seemingly adopted a sober and very
"newsy" approach. He is, in all probability, aiming at a big-time
newspaper career, and takes his work seriously. He likes to believe that this is his journalism school. The make-up of his paper
approaches closer to metropolitan form every year. Some American college dailies have become members of the great newsgather-
irig chains and have complete publishing rights on dispatches. All
this tends to broaden the scope of editorial comment.
The editor has no time for pranks. At twenty or twenty-one
he has an inhorent sensitivity to fresh breezes of thought. Ho is
dead against war, or is, until war arrives. A product of the democratic scheme of things, tho college newspaper is deeply cognizant
of democratic rights and institutions, lt is indeed "n liberal journal."
By the time that these words appear in print the campus will
have become aware of a new publication, another work of art
from the offices of the toiling Publications Board, in brief, the
Student Directory.
Considerable credit is due Janet Wulker, the editor, for her
energetic part in the production of the Directory. Hor second
work this term, the Directory is quite equal in general excellence
and value to her first job, the Student Handbook.
Few students would realize that the book contains in the
neighborhood of 2,500 names, addresses, and telephone numbers.
There is, in addition, a eomplete list of the presidents of the campus clubs and organizations, with their corresponding phone numbers and addresses.
It is becoming a custom now to have the Student Directory.
I.ong may such a tradition be continued.
The students must show their appreciation for this 'passport
to paradise' by purchasing every copy printed at a total cost of
ten miserable cents.

"Obtaining dyes, acid, and high
explosives became a serious problem
for the Allies when war cut off the
supply from Oermany In 1914," Dr.
M. J. Marshall, of the Department
of Chemistry, told an audience of
sclencemen  on  Tuesday.
"This time," he explained, "the
shortage is all on the enemy's side."
While describing the difficulties
encountered in producing explosives
ln the last war, Dr. Marshall related
many surprising incidents he experienced during the World War.
"The Nazis say that the Germany
of today is not the Germany of 1914;
but neither are the other countries,"
he explained. Although the United

On November 21, CBR will present
the flrst of a series of twelve broadcasts of chamber music. This form
of music has never played the part
lt merits ln radio entertainment. This
is unfortunate, since the radio ls an
especially effective medium for this
form of music; broadcasting gives its
presentation an Intimacy comparable
to that obtained by having the music
played ln one's own home. No matter how sympathetically the music be
Interpreted, and no matter how attentive and eager the audience, this
same Intimacy cannot be experienced
when chamber music ls presented ln a
concert hall. The home ls undoubtedly the best place for listening to
chamber music; the forthcoming series of programs are so excellently
and diversely arranged that every
music lover with facilities to hear
them should be extremely grateful to
the CBC for making their presentation possible.
Unfortunately, chamber music has
never achieved on the North American continent the popularity which it
largely continues to enjoy In Europe.
The Influences likely to effect a lively
and widespread Interest ln chamber
music have not been very active in
Canada, and lt is obvious that the
beat Way to remedy this condition ls
to present more chamber music by
the most ubiquitous medium, the radio, which can do Inestimably more
to elicit greater enthusiasm for the
music than can be done by any other
There exists a body of excellent
compositions available for broadcasts
of chamber music, and there is also
an adequate number of first-class Interpreters at the service of CBR. Consequently, it ls to be hoped that the
British Columbia radio audience will
give to these broadcasts as much attention and Interest as possible. Provided sufficient enthusiasm for the
series ls aroused, they are certain to
be of great significance and value.
The program will be heard over
CBR at ten o'clock every Tuesday
evening for a period of twelve weeks
commencing November 21. The following list adequately Illustrates the
diversity and excellences of the pieces
which have been chosen:
1. (November 21) Sonata ln A major for  'cello and piano—Beethoven.
2. Bach cantata for voice, strings,
oboes and piano (replacing harpsichord).
3. Mozart sonata in D major for
two pianos.
4. Trio by Haydn.
5. Excerpts from Bach's Christmas
6. Works for two pianos and modern Kngllsh songs.
7. Sonata by Cesar Franck for violin and piano.
8. String quartet by Mozart.

sixteenth century modern, and folk

While we were chatting with Liv-
and Thor Heyerdahl the two Norwegian atudenta who spent their
honeymoon on a cannibal taland as
the nearest neighbour to an ex-cannibal chief (not ex-chief), Thor said

Just how the cannibal kept up
with the daily news is beyond us.
But at any rate he has heard about

Quartet Thrills
Large Student
Students of the University were
presented with a rare musical treat
Wednesday noon when the Hart
House String Quartet gave a short
recital ln the Auditorium.
The group played the O major
Quartet of Mozart, often known as
the Dissonance Quartet. Throughout
the four movements, the artists displayed the delicacy of treatment, the
perfection of tone, - and the faultless
balance for which they are noted.
As an encore, they played the third
movement,' a sort of scherzo, from the
E. minor Quartet of the modern English composer, Frank Bridge. In this
unusual composition, the quartet illustrated Its versatility and its wide
range of effect.
A large and enthusiastic audience
recalled the artists to the stage. The
members of the Quartet are: flrst
violin, James Levey; seoond violin,
Adolphe Kodolfsky; viola, Milton
Blackstone, and cello, Boris Hambourg.
The Department of Extension ls
to be heartily congratulated for
bringing this noted group to the University. —J.M.R.M.

Letters To The Editor
Copy of open letter sunt to:
Social Problems Olub,
University of B.C.,
November 10, 1030.
President Kllnck,
University of British Columbia,
Vancouver, B.C.
Dear Sir:
We feel certain that you will be
interested ln our considered attitude
to a question which is causing earnest reflection ln all quarters: the
question of  democracy  and the war.
The Treaty of Versailles, the unprecedented rise of Nazism, the failure of the League of Nations, and
the Inability of the democracies to
agree, have, we feel, aU contributed
to the breakdown of peace efforts. In
each of these cases Injustice and disagreement have been fostered by a
lack of democratic opinion or demo
cratio interpretation. Democracy,
then, as we see lt, ls a prerequisite
of any international organization for
the maintenance of peace.
In the national sphere, we emphatically believe that, If a high morale
ls to be maintained ln this war against tyranny and for democracy, civil
liberties must be maintained at the
greatest level commensurate with
military precautions. Transgressions
of the tradition of British freedom
must be frankly recognized by all.
This ls essential If we are to avoid
the danger to our national life implied in war profiteering, especially
ln food and arms.
Youth must always be given primary consideration during the war. In
the course of a long war thousands
upon thousands of young people will
grow to maturity. They must be
trained in democracy and therefore
must practise it ln their dally activities.
We recognize the necessity of preserving academic freedom—a tradition which has always made, and ls
at the present making, the greatest
single contribution to the development of leadership in society. Our
Institutions of higher learning must
pursue with single-minded determination, the policy of education in democracy and democracy in education.
Let democratic education meet the
challenge of demagogic propaganda.
This ls our conception of the steps
necessary to maintain our educational standards, to carry out the war
and to establish a lasting peace.
We have written this letter beoause
we have sincere belief ln your attachment to the Ideals of liberty. We
trust that your influence will be applied ln maintaining democracy
through this present crisis.
Yours sincerely,
The executive of the
Social Problems Club,

Board Of Trade
Wins Debate
Stressing the educational and
economic advantages of the modern
radio, Len Martin and Dave Lesser
of the Junior Board of Trade defeated Austin Delany and Roger
Federson of the Parliamentary Forum in a Vancouver City League debate held on the campus last Monday night.
Speaking against the resolution:
"That the Radio has done more
harm than good" Lesser claimed
that the radio has done much to
solve the problem of education both
for the blind and for those people
unable to attend  universities.
Roger Pederaon, flrst speaker for
the University, maintained that the
radio, with its orgy of Jazz, crime
thrillers, and sensationalism was
lowering the cultural and Intellectual trend of modern youth.
In ridiculing thia assertion, Len
Martin of the Board of Trade said,
"The modern radio haa transformed
the world from a barrier of continents  into one  vast amphitheatre."
Observing that the radio must
face the problem of expressing the
philosophy, politics and economic
principles of our age, Austin Delany
asserted that the radio, in falling
down in the realms of culture, humour and education, had 'stifled the
human personality.'

Playing Host to
League Leaders
On The Campus
Fresh from a convincing 0-1 win
over Chllllwaek Wednesday, Varsity
soccermen face their most Important
game of the year this Saturday when
they clash with the powerful Premier
Hotel outfit In the first senior league
contest to be played on the campus ln
some years.
It's only two weeks since the Hotel-
men nosed out the campusmen 1-0 on
the mud of Moody Park, New Westminster, and since then the Royal
City boys have risen to undisputed
top position ln the league. This Saturday, things will be different vow
the collegians who swamped Chllllwaek under a flood of second half
goals in an exhibition game at the
Valley centre Wednesday.
The only goal of the first half oame
from Basil Robinson after a brilliant
passing attaok on the right wing.
After the half, the farmers equalized
on a quick breakaway against tha run
of the play, but Robinson again scored
for the students within 10 minutes.
Further Blue and Gold goals were
leglstered by Stew Roach (2), Chuck
Howatson and Stu Todd. Roach, for
the first time this season was moved
to the ins'de-left position, while Doug
Todd went back to the half line.
Coach   Charlie   Hltchens  hopes   to
have a new combination out on Saturday    when    the    soccermen    make
their bow before campus fans on the
upper field above the stadium. Roach
was quite convincing ln his new position, although he has yet to get  in
good shape,  and Doug Todd,  ln the
half line for the flrst time, showed to
advantage through most of the game.
Dennis   Leong,   who   suffered    a
cracked rib In last week's game with
the   City  Police,   wlU   be  baok   between the posts for the locals.
The U.B.O. team will also be playing on the campus this week-end.
They will be opposed by St. Regis and
the game will start at 2.10, the
same time as the senior game.
Manager Ken Eldridge ls beginning
to feel better about the coming few
encounters as his star fullback Walling, who was reported to have a case
of water on the knee, will be back
in strip soon.

the biggest team record ln local football circles.
Graduation for the backfleld means

contests this fall.
Not until recently has Tommy been

College OPtCm Mage
•By Lionel Salt
Just two years ago, campus sporting enthusiasts culminated a long and
tedious drive for better athletlo facilities on the campus, when they announced the opening of a $40,000 Stadium which was to promote athletics
at the University. *
Speaking at the opening, Jay Oould, past president of the Alma Mater
Sooiety, and prime factor in the move that saw the Student Body float the
$40,000 bond Issue, said:
"Underneath the spectators' decks ls what amounts to a oomplete
athletlo oentre, offices, coaches' rooms, an assembly haU for athletlo
Instruction, and speolal accommodation for equipment."
Naturally, Oould was speaking in the flrst flush of his newly acquired
success, and did not realise that his statement was, unfortunatsly, Incorrect.
For instead of his "assembly hall for athletlo Instruction," there was nothing
but a room, measuring 60 by 40 feet, bounded by four concrete walls, and
laid with good old 'terra flrma.'
No athletlo Instruction, here, Is even remotely possible under the existing conditions, although the need for suoh is quite apparent. The spaoe,
admirably suited for housing minor sports, Is being wasted through the
stupidity of our Student Counoil who, to date, have failed to realise the
$40,000 supplied by students has bsen spent in vain unless that Investment
is developed to Its highest point.
A solution to the overorowdlng of the gymnasium leads straight to the
Stadium, and no one knows this better than Athletlo Director Maury Van
Vliet. Expressing his feelings on the matter, Van Vllet explained how his
time-table, already stretched to Its limits oould be alleviated by moving the
minor sport clubs from the gym into the room in the Stadium.
Benefitting by this move would be the Soienoemen of the oampus, who
under the present system have little or no opportunity to take part in these
vital activities. It is necessary to have permanent spaoe for these minor
events which encompass boxing, wrestling, fencing, weight-lifting, tumbling, and hand ball.
To show this pressing need for permanent space is the example chosen
by Maury. Boxing on the campus has experienced a boom with more than
fifty members now enrolled. And yet Maury Is expected to teach the fundamentals of boxing to these enthusiasts without even the aid of a boxing
Fencing Is non-existent at Varsity despite the presenoe of its many
followers who have been trying to establish this sport for years. Lack of
space, due to an over-crowding of gymnasium space has proven to be a
stone wall blocking their attempts.
The same conditions are existent for all the smaller athletic sporta
who have been crying for spaoe and a chance these past few years. And
yet, the University could so easily give them that chanoe If only the students would open their eyea, and take an Intereat In an Investment that
former students fought bitterly for.
Nothing but stupidity could prevent this University from furntahlng
that room over ln the Stadium. It could very easily be laid with a good
Mooring, and divided into two rooms by running folding doors down the
middle of it. This would create two rooms, each 60 by 20 feet, which could
be set aside as permanent training rooma for these abused aporta.
The boxing club would get Ita ring, and then would be able to enter
into competition with Intercollegiate teama. Fencing, wrestling, weight-
lifting, tumbling, and hand ball would all get a desired chance and the
Stadium would become for the flrst time "a complete athletic centre" that
Varsity could be proud to possess.
This year's Student Council is comprised of John Pearson, Basil Robinson, Evan apRoberts, Jim Harmer, Darrell Braldwood, Biddy McNeil,
Ruth Hutchinson, Rosemary Collins, Todd Tremblay, and John Garrett.
Next time you see one of these people, ask them If they're protecting that
$40,000 Investment, and If they can Justify their inactivity.

At last! Inter-class competition is
booming. Intramural Maury actually
smiled when he proudly stated that
class turnouts are the biggest on record. After a shaky start this fall,
enthusiasm steadily has Increased
and the class rep. meetings have been
amazingly well attended of late and
the Monday noon roll call finds an
even dozen class managers on hand.
The long dormant Education class
has showed phenomenal vim, vigor
and vitality, and has burned up the
volley ball courts. Having fought
their way to the seml-flnals, they now
stand ready to take on the winners of
this Friday's colossal volley ball double header:
