Council Takes Stand
For UBC P.E. Dept.
•   MORE DEFINITE plans toward obtaining a Physical
Education Department at the University of B.C. were
formulated at the Students' Council meeting last Monday
Miss Gertrude Moore and Mr.
M. L. Van Vliet, present Athletic
Directors, and Miss Mary Fallls,
and Mr. Bruce Robinson of the
Alumni Association were present
to explain the situation as it
stands now, and to assist the students in their attempts to gain
action ln the official circles.
It was decided that the Board
of Governors be approached to
discover exactly what action has
been taken, and what the objections, If any, to the Inauguration
of such a department at UBC are.
Mr. Van Vliet explained the Bill
as passed by the Federal Government last year, by which a total
sum of $250,000 was set aside for
the promotion of physical fitness
and health ln the dominion. This
sum is to be allotted to the various provinces on a per capita
basis upon application by the provincial government. Requests for
the money must be made within
a year.
The provincial session is now in
progress and if B.C. is to receive
its share of the money, the request
must be made by the House within the next month.
Money allotted to B.C. amounts
to $16,000, and that sum will be
matched, dollar for dollar, by thc
provincial government. The decision rests solely with Victoria as
to the disposition of the money
within the province, and it should
be noted that the university cannot
expect to receive the total sum.
As the Alumni members and the
specialists in the field pointed out,
there are two sources of demand
for such a department at UBC.
One ls from the students who wish
to obtain, proper teacher's qualifications in Physical Education, and
the other Is from the employer.)
who require well-trained Instructors for this type of work.
Investigation by several groups
in the province, such as the PTA,
and the Physical Education Association, has proved that there are
countless positions ln this province for trained Instructors ln this
field in schools, camps, Industry,
and so on.
The immediate problem is to
find out what action has been
taken. It is known that the Board
of Governors of the university has
pnssed a resolution, approved by
the Senate, and.forwarded to Victoria, requesting a Department of
P E. at the university as soon as
Little seems to have resulted
from this communication, since Inquiries made of the provincial representatives are met with the
advice to go to the Board of Governors for action.
At present, the Pro-Recs receive
all the money used for physical
training In the province, yet they
dn not offer a comprehensive
training course for teachers,
Mr. Van Vliet has drawn up a
program of courses and possible
credits which can be divided into
two parts. One of these is a
course leading to a degree in
Physical Education, for teaching
purposes, and the other is a required course for students at university, if it is felt that such a
course is necessary,
"Results of medical examinations
show that the physical fitness of
150 average male students at UBC
ii 15'a lower than that of students
at other Canadian universities,"
Mr. Van Vliet maintained.

"Varsity" Sued For Libel
By U. OF Toronto LawClub
•   CUP —FEBRUARY  10—The  Varsity,   undergraduate
newspaper of the University of Toronto has been sued
for $1500 on a charge of defamatory libel by the Law Club
of that university.
The case, which will be tried in       	
the university's Moot Court, originated in the February 2 column
of Phil Shackleton, the Sports
In this column Shackleton attacked the Law Students for attempting to establish their own
intramural sports team, stating
that there is not enough men for,
nor interest in, a team such as the
one proposed.
In the Law Club's reply to the
Column, they ask for a retraction
of the "insidious innuendo concerning Mr. McGuinness", the instigator of the separationist move.
The following edition of the
Varsity contained Shackleton's
answer to this letter: "Needless to
say the retraction is not forthcoming."
When Informed of the Law
Club's libel suit the next day,
Shackleton said, "I'll just plead
Insanity," laughed and walked
An incidenl, similar to this was
recorded in 1939 when the Swing
Club sued the Varsity for J1.000.
Tho Club won its suit and was
awarded the damages of $1,000 or

Creighton Versus
Chambers; Other
Elections Feb. 16
•   STUDENTS WILL GO to the polls Friday instead of
Wednesday to elect the AMS treasurer from the two
candidates, Ken Creighton and Ted Chambers.
Because of the poor attendance
at the campaign speeches on Monday the speakers refused to give
their addresses and the elections
were postponed till Friday.
Chambers is a third year commerce student and has been interested in campus activities. He is
a member of the commerce club
and parliamentary forum. This
year he is treasurer of Arts '45.
Creighton has also had experience in student affairs.
He was president of students'
council at Kitsilano. He is president of his fraternity, and secretary of IFC—and ls taking a five
year course including an advanced
course in accounting. Creighton
has had actual experience as a

Creighton advocates:
1. Co-operation with the Alumni Association in the establishment
of an office In conjunction with
our Alma Mater Society office and
in their endeavour to establish a
physical education department on
the campus also in their attempt

From The Editor's Pen « « » ^•fl!?*
P. E. For B. C.
For several weeks, there has been much
questioning regarding the reports that there
is a possibility of obtaining a sum of money
for the inauguration of a Department of
Physical, Education at UBC, yet when definite reports as to our progress in actually
directing this money to the campus were
•ought, no new material could be obtained.
Many people on this campus, and
friends of the University have worked for
years toward the establishment of such a
department. They have been busy ever
since the passing of the Physical Fitness
Bill in Ottawa, writing letters and contacting
persons who might be able to assist us in
our endeavours to obtain some of this money.
At Monday night's Council meeting,
three of these people explained the situation
to the campus executives, and a co-operative
plan was drawn up in the hopes that we
may be able to have the Provincial House
consider the matter during the present session and allot some of the total $32,000 to
The definite figures and facts can be
found in a separate story in this paper, but
we wish to stress the point that, should the
provincial government apply for its share
of the money set aside by the federal government, we can not expect the complete
sum to be given to the university. It seems
that there have been some misconceptions
in this regard.
At any rate, the problem is now one of
persuading the provincial government that
a good part of the money could be used to
the best advantage of the province at the
University of B.C.
A member of the committee which drew
up the bill for presentation before the House
stipulated that the greatest need is for competent teachers to train the populace in
physical fitness and health. He further stipulated that places for the training of such
teachers should be established by the provinces in the universities.
There can be no doubt that the addition
of a Department of Physical Education
would be advantageous to this university.
There is no school in this province where
a student may get thorough training towards
a degree in this subject, and yet there is a
tremendous need for these teachers.
Not only does this province require
more and better trained teachers, but the
health of the people of B.C. needs great
improvement. Our male students on this
campus have been shown to be fifteen percent poorer in health arid physical fitness,
than the average of those of other Canadian
campi. Inauguration of a P.E. Department
could be planned with a view to physical
training for every student at the university.
Letters have been filed in Victoria, in
Ottawa, with the Board of Governors, and
with the Senate of the university. When
inquiries are made of one of these groups,
the answering is passed on to another of
the groups.
The time is past for writing letters. If
we want a Physical Education Department
at UBC we must act NOW! We have the
support of influential and experienced organizations behind us; we have a general
plan before us. Why wait any longer?
What, Elections Postponed ?
A sudden reversal of policy on the part
of Student Council has caused a considerable amount of ill-feeling on the campus.
Last week, at their meeting, Council decided
against postponing elections in deference to
the ISS Drive. This week, however, they
unanimously agreed to carry the elections
over until today, instead of holding them on
Wednesday as specified by the constitution.
Their reasons for this week's decision
were that the candidates had not had the
opportunity to address the voters, or at least,
that not a sufficient number of students attended the meetings called for this purpose.
The candidates refused to address such n
small gathering.
Students cannot vote intelligently if
they are not acquainted with the platforms
of the candidates, they reiterated, and since
the treasurer holds such a responsible position, it would not be to the best interests of
the Alma Mater Society to make the electors
vote on Wednesday without having heard
the candidates speak. Ergo, postpone the
elections and try to get a few people out to
speeches on Wednesday. (Approximately
100, 40 more than on Monday, appeared on
Yet last week, all Monday ISS functions
were cancelled so that the speeches could
be held, and the elections carried through
on Wednesday, and the schedule of elections would not be interrupted. At that time,
Council's main objection to postponing the
election was that it would throw all the
term events into confusion with many dates
Granted that there was a justifiable
argument there, but it showed a lack of
appreciation on the part of Council for the
students who are working hard to make
UBC's war effort succeed. Perhaps the Ubyssey is somewhat to blame for not having
printed a larger story about the speeches,
but it was printed in the paper, and surely
bulletin boards and the PA system have
some value in spreading the news as well.
Another argument in favor of holding
the elections was the inevitable "constitutional ruling". Does that not hold for this
week, as for last?
For all the difference in the size of the
audience which listened to the speeches on
Wednesday, as compared to that which turned out on Monday, only to be disappointed,
it seems that Council has left itself unnecessarily open to criticism.
On one occasion, these Monday Night
Mentors insist upon the old tradition of constitution and precedent. On the next occasion, they radically revert their policies
and overthrow their precedents and constitutional laws.
The students want a set policy on such
matters. They want a policy that can be
referred to in difficult situations, and one
which will prevent difficult situations from
If this year's Council does not reform,
perhaps next year's Council will at least
learn a few lessons from their mistakes.
* Student. Opinion ... bv irac
• IT HAS BEEN some time now since a
column has appeared in the Ubyssey
under the banner IRAC or Student Opinion.
Has anyone missed it? That is a question
we would like answered.
The Inquiry Research Action Council
was set up early in the school year because
it was felt by its founders, at least, that
student apathy had reached an all time high,
and that the only medium, the Ubyssey,
which by its very nature could do something about it, was prevented by lack of a
sufficient number of competent writers.
However, the Editor of the paper proved
agreeable to our suggestions.
When she was approached she endorsed our ideas and said to go right ahead. We
did, but our articles were a bit too hot to
handle; too coloured and not objective
enough, it was claimed.
Revisions had to be made which took
the sting out of them, and hence those who
were willing to climb on the bandwagon
classed us as being too vague, too indefinite,
and wondered where action was coming
from. Our first two articles were admittedly
idealistic; they were intended to set the philosophical background which would form the
frame of reference for future articles. Our
next article dealt with the subject of the
qualifications for the University President.
Over eighty students took the trouble to
fill out the poll.
The poll of the article on clubs was not
encouraging, hence we changed our line of
attack. Instead of putting out ballot boxes,
we decided to interview people personally,
on a selected representative basis.
The article on the need for Chinese and
Russian language departments aroused so
much interest that it demonstrated the need
for such a department at UBC. Since that
time such persons as Dr. Kilborn have given
their support to the idea.
Probably the article which aroused the
greatest interest was the last one regarding
the post-war conference. Up until the time
of the printing of that article there was
probably only a small percentage of students
on the campus who knew anything about it.
IRAC started the ball rolling and before
long it was shown that the students were
behind the conference. That is what is
meant by action.
Now to come back to the reason for this
article—the Ubyssey editors claim that they
print what the students want, with the talent
available. The question is, do you want
these articles on student opinion to continue?
The IRAC has a valuable part to play
in rounding out the Ubyssey pages with such
articles as Sex Education, University Refugees (which are waiting to go to press),
Dormitories for UBC, Inter-Varsity Competition, and the Canadian Youth Commission.
Do you wish to see the columns on student opinion continue in the Ubyssey?

Editor of the Ubyssey,
Dear Sir,
In view of the fact that there are
numerous people on the campus
that like good music, we think
that it is about time Phil Nimmons
and his boys put on a show. His
group would probably not attract
a very large crowd, as most of the
students don't seem to appreciate
jazz. But we can safely, say that
the few who turn up will be a
truly responsive audience. We can
also say that a true musician
would rather play to a half a
dozen appreciative people than to
an auditorium full of people who
don't give a damn what's being
played as long as it sounds loud
and savage.
We hope that this idea will be
given due consideration by those
who are in a position to db something about—including Mr. Nimmons himself.
Yours sincerely,
George McAfee

Is it necessary for the AMS to

Foreign Policy Bill wusCoed
S ho p P i n J   uith Mary Ann
Ralston Fined For
Playing With 'Reps'
In McKechnie Tilt
e DON Ralston, noted athlete,
was brought before the Discipline Committee last Wednesday
and fined 815.
He was charged by the MAD according to Article 24 for playing
for the Vancouver Reps against
the University in the McKechnie
Cup series.
In addition to his fine Ralston
had his AMS pass suspended for
two weeks.
*   A BILL favouring the formation of a commonwealth
council to control the foreign policy of the British Commonwealth was passed by the Mock Parliament which met in
the Brock lounge Tuesday night.
The   bill   provided   that       «_____»._______»
Canada, as senior Dominion initiate proceedings towards the formation of the council. It also stated
that other democracies which wished to affiliate themselves with tha
Empire would be allowed representation on the council.
Previous to the passing of the
bill, the speech from the throne,
read by Governor-General F. G.
C.'Wood, was approved by a small
majority, after a heated discussion.
Third item on the agenda of the
session was a surprise bill brought
in by Home Secretary Alan Ainsworth, which provided thai married men should be required by
law to wear some form of distinctive Identification.
In explaining the need for the
bill Ainsworth pointed out that
the female of the species had finally taken the lead in searching
for a mate, and consequently there
should be some way in which they
could distinguish the eligible male
from the Ineligible.
The Liberals in the government
split the coalition  to defeat the
bill by a substantial majority.
During the discussion on the
council, Don McGill, CCF member
for Essondale, stated that he had
received a letter from one of his
constituents, signing himself Napoleon, asking that he leave the
CCF and join the government.
Thereupon, pointing out that he
always did what his constituents
asked, him to, McGill crossed to
take up a seat with the government
Minister of Finance, Harold Parrot, Immediately arose, stated that
he could not remain in the same
party with a crazy man, and walked over to the CCF.
Both men continued to vote with
their original parties. *
In moving the Commonwealth
Council Bill, Minister of Foreign
Affairs, John Cowan, stated that
Britain would not be able, alone,
to take her place in the post-war
world on an equal footing with
Russia and the United States, unless she had the full support and
co-operation of the dominions.
Socialists in the house opposed
the bill on the grounds that it
was isolationistic, and a violation
of the principles of Teheran.
Government members insisted,
on the other hand, that the bill
was the first logical step towards
the achievement of true international co-operation.
The house adjourned at 9:30, to
catch a bus.
e COEDS will have their chance
at the men this month at the
WUS Leap Year Frolic on February 29, in the Brock from 9 to 1,
Don Williamson's orchestra will

campus next week providing further details.
All Services Paid
$5 By New System
• THE POLICY FOR waiving pay under the Local Headquarters Training plan for the years 1943-44 was definitely decided upon at a recent meeting. All officers, N.C.O.'s
and cadets will receive five dollars of the total amount of
parade money. This applies only to the period that the
University is in session.
e WE FOUND four things about
the Clever Floor at Rae-Son's,
608 Granville, when we bought a
pair of snappy new afternoon
shoes the other day. First we
discovered the styles were the
newest, the fitting was correct and
comfortable, the value was good,
and we know they will give good
service . . . two Kappa Sigs were
visiting a batching girl's establishment and were happily consuming something the girls had
just whipped up when the landlady's tread was heard approaching. As it was after visiting hours
the boys ducked into an adjoining
bedroom—and ducked out again
almost immediately looking very,
very embarrassed. They'd decided
the landlady was the weaker
menace . . . startlingly smart are
the new suede pumps on Rae-
Son's Clever Floor. $5.95 is a
small price to pay for million-
dollar style value.
e EASTER'S Coming! and naturally you can't depend upon
the Easter bunny for everything,
especially in regard to the clothing
situation. But you can depend upon the Lydia Margaret Lawrence
Studio for one definite reason.
That reason? Contrast! Clothes!
Ideas! Colours! And you can get
just that at the Lawrence studio—
mmm hmmm, personalized service
by Miss Lawrence herself ... a
short, blond Ec. honours student
made a date with a beautiful high
school girl he'd met through a
friend for the dance last Friday,
but after he'd asked her he found
out she was only fifteen, so he
phoned and said his girl friend
from Victoria had just come to
town and he couldn't take her
after all . . . Open house in the
Lawrence Studio every Tuesday
and Thursday so drop In at 815,
Arts and Crafts Building on 576
Seymour to discuss your Easter
clothing ideas with Miss Lawrence
and perhaps pick up a few new
ones you hadn't thought of.

Off The Cuff    Tisdall Game On Saturday
•   WHAT'S THIS, what's this?   Along comes a story In
Vancouver's largest morning newspaper that some citizen
in the States has suggested that the great game of basketball
be changed.
The sterling suggestion is that the game would be bettered if the teams were allowed to shoot at both baskets. Hold
on, though, there is one stipulation connected with this that
does prevent a lot of confusion. •
The team with the ball must cross the center line before
it can turn back. Or go ahead, for that matter.
Imagine the confusion, as the team with the ball works
around back and forth at center and then streak for the
basket at the end least guarded.
The gentleman who suggests this claims it would do
away with the system of zone defense employed by many
of the teams.
Picture a team all lined up in a tight zone, the team with
the ball advances toward centre, crosses the line and then
heads for the basket they have just left. And it would be
unguarded, too.
Another minor change suggested is the addition of a
sixth man to each team.
Oddly enough, this new fangled invention has been tried
out by a hoop team in Ft. Lewis, Washington, where it is
sdpposed to have proven popular with the players as well
aa the spectators.
A good idea would be to grow a couple of tall men, say
around six foot nine, and plant one under each basket and let
the other four or five fellows work the ball until one end
was in a better position to be scored upon than the other.
Man, oh, man, what unlimited possibilities there could
be to such a game. The players would really have to be in
condition for such a tilt, though, and be ready to break either
way down the floor at a moment's notice.
Say, old goat, we must have a little fling at such an
event. Remind me not to play, though.
SCRATCHINGS: Don Ralston, who is now playing for
the Varsity side in the Tisdall Cup match tomorrow, appeared
before the MAD last week on charges of having played for
the Vancouver Reps in two McKechnie Cup games against
the Thunderbirds.
This is the first violation of the MAD rules this season
and it is gratifying to see that such action has been properly
dealt with.
Other students have requested permission to play for
non-Varsity teams this year and some have been refused
and some granted the right to play, but when an incident
such as this happens where a student plays outside without
first applying to the MAD he should be properly disciplined.

Last Victoria Game For
Birds Saturday Night
• UNIVERSITY OF British Columbia's Basketball team,
the Thunderbirds, play their last Victoria game of the
league season tomorrow night in their return engagement
with the Pat Bay Gremlins. Last night the Blue and Gold
hoopsters played the Chihuahua State Teachers College
squad, champions of Mexico, in Seattle.
Last week-end, the Birds took
two defeats from the Victoria
Flyers in their series here last
Friday and Saturday nights. Friday's game, slated on the "Hunk
Henderson" night program ended
with the RCAF crew only three
points to the good, 45-42.
On the following evening at VAC
gymnasium, the exhibition was not
quite so good. Again, the Fliers
took the Students, this time by
seven points, 44-37.
Meanwhile, over on the Island,
the Victoria Army defeated Lauries
Pie-Rates, thus putting them in a
second spot tie with the Thunderbirds. The Pat Bay Gremlins
remain on top of the heap with
four wins and no losses.
All minor league hopes for UBC
faded on Saturday night when the
West Van Vs trounced the Varsity
Senior B's to take the Senior £
title of the Vancouver and District
League. The other Varsity squad
was the UBC Frosh Inter A Club
which was nosed out of the playoffs by the C.Y.O. Oaks, two weeks
This leaves only the Thunderbirds to represent the university in
basketball, and thus all efforts will
be concentrated on them. Although this team has been beate.i
by the Pat Bay outfit in all of
the four games in which they have
played them, the Birds are looking
forward to a triumph tomorrow
night in B.C.'s capital.
There is a good chance that they
will win their contest tomorrow,
at that. Flashy floor general
Porky Andrews will be absent on
leave, and if "Basket-gorger" Baker is still off in his shooting as
he was last Saturday night, the
odds will swing to Varsity.

e UNIVERSITY soccer fans will
get their share of sports entertainment tomorrow a f t e rnoon
when the Varsity squad will meet
the Fleet Air Arm on the campus.
The university boys will be after
another win in their so-far successful  season.
The defense of the team will
consist mainly of Herbie Smith,
sensational goalie for the students,
who has been acclaimed by all
soccer players for his ability to
stop opponents' shots.
But their atttacking crew is
what wins the ball games.
Sparked by goal-getters Don Petrie, Fred Hole, Roy McNeill, and
Clem Philley, the forward line
will be constantly on the advance,
although this Fleet Air Arm outfit is said to have a very strong
line of defense.

Helped By
e THE Trainers Club has at
last been organized to the extent where it has become an indispensable part of all sports teams
and they are fast becoming something which this campus can well
be proud of.
Since Its reestablishment a few
v/eeks ago, this club lost no time
in posting its members to every
team on the campus,
The English Rugby Team has
Renne Piderman and Tom Gillls
as Trainer's Club representatives.
Bob Williams and Ed Zahar, the
two most energetic members of the
club, have been handling the soccer teams and Ernie Roy and Ken
Belcher have done a lot of work
with the Senior "A" basketball
Bob Williams has stated that
this is but the beginning. He has
suggested that as the club becomes
more organized that the use of
the Trainers Club be extended to
individual students. This and
many other ideas are a definite
possibility and the club is hoping
lhat the students will cooperate
in any such undertaking.
The educational part of the
trainers club Is proceeding In leaps
ond bounds with lectures every
week   by   Dr.   Ranta   and   many
other  persons. V1J^J"^&,tcktftm^t

Of Tisdall Play
•   TISDALL CUP PLAY centres around the University of
British Columbia tomorrow afternoon when both entries
from the campus meet on the campus at 1:30 in the second
act of the current competition.
Froth Use Six-Man Scrum
Varsity, fresh from a good win
over Ex-Byng last Saturday, will
meet UBC, who have not entered
active participation. Whether the
upperclassmen have been able to
teach the freshmen anything about
the game of English rugger in the
short space of four months could
be a matter of argument amongst
some interested people.
The frosh team has an Imposing
line-up to put on the field. At
least half of their members have
played with the Thunderbird team
and have been carrying a lot of
the weight of that team's efforts.
The frosh attack will be based
on a six man scrum and a full
back field. Bob Lawson, Bill Ross,
Keith MacDonald, and Joe Peques
are all members of the Thunderbird team, who are taking their
places in the scrum. Gordy Morrison will probably be the star of
the field in the position of five-
eighths, but Jack Sim and Tom
McCusker will provide plenty of
additional support in case of any
Ralston Plays For Varsity
The upperclass team looks a little
more powerful at first sight thin
the freshmen but chiefly because
the players have been playing in
past years for Varsity. Ten of
their thirteen players have played
at least one year before this year
under the banner of the Blue and
Don Ralston, truant player for
some time has returned to the fold
of his  alma  mammy  which  of
course adds considerable strength
to the threes. George Rush takes
his usual place at fullback and the
dependable Dougie Reid holds
down inside three with • ▼sty
firm grip.
Cam Coady, one of last year's
American Football stars is dropping out of the play much to the
disappointment of his team mates,
because of an injured knee.

The lineup of both teams is as follows:
