Hamber Delivers Address
At Annual Congregation
Urges All to Join Patriotic Groups
To Ensure Economy of Material
And Human Endeavour
The black shadow of war hung like a pall over Wednesday's
Thirteenth Annual Autumn congregation, where two honorary
doctor's degrees, and eighty-four master's and bachelor's degrees
were conferred, as the Honourable Erie W. Hamber, Lieutenant-
Governor of the Province of British Columbia issued a call to
service in civilian auxiliary forces, after receiving with Dr. Paul
A. Boving, professor emeritus, the Degree  of Doctor of Laws,
honoris causa.
The Auditorium was ths soene
of a colorful procession last Wedneaday aa the faoulty membera made
their entrance to the Fall Congregation wearing the hoods indicative of
tholr various degrees.
There were blue hoods, red hoods,
green hoods, yellow hoods; in fact
there were hooda of almost any
color you care to mention.
The origin of these marks of scholastic achievement lies away back In
the times when monasteries were the
sole centres of learning and monks
led the field In scholastic endeavour.
In those days, however, the hood
was more practical ln design and
served both as a badge of scholarship
and a serviceable headgear. Those of
you who were fortunate enough to
have an Illustrated edition of Robin
Hood stories (in your youth) will remember how Friar Tuck wore his
cowl thrown back from his head and
hanging down between his shoulder-
blades. From this, the monkish fash-
Ion of the day, lt is easy to trace the
evolution of the hood as a mark of
The universities, as they arose In
suooesalon to the monasteries, took
over thla characteristic garb of the
scholar and conventionalised  It In
the   form   you   aaw   In   the   auditorium laat Wedneaday afternoon.
Each university adopted a distinctive color for its hood. Consequently,
as more universities sprang up, lt became necessary to have some body to
govern the distribution of colors and
Insignia. This need was filled by the
Oollege of Heralds in England, and it
ls from this college that the University   of   B.C.   received   Its   University
Shield and colors.
In 1030 a committee composed of
faculty members from the university
went to a great deal of trouble to
asoertaln the exact shade of blue
used on the Shield and to ensure that
this same shade would be used on
every hood granted to U.B.C. graduates ln Arts. It was also decided that
red should be used for the Science
hoods and maize for the hoods ol
graduates ln Agriculture.
If you should wonder at the
khaki braid on the gowns of undergraduates, It la there In memory of
those university students who were
killed In the last war.
Oowns have always presented a
ticklish problem on this campus. As
far back as 1022 the faculty agreed
that they should wear gowns "If
convenient", but apparently the vast
majority of our lecturers find lt Inconvenient. Students also have never
been enthusiastic over the prospect
of donning gowns although the question comes up with monotonous regularity every year. Students and pro-
lessors alike are. generally speaking,
allergic to gowns and prefer to run
their scholastic course ln n condition
of academic nakedness.
"It Is essential that all who oan
possibly do so should join some one
of thoss splendid organisations—the
Red Cross, St. John's Ambulanoe
and various other patriotic societies
—said tbe Lieutenant-Governor as
be delivered the Congregational
If It la not possible to Join an
organisation, His Honor suggested
registration for some form ot duty
beat suited to the peraon concerned, "ao that, by organised efforts,
there will be no wastage of work,
material or human endeavour."
"No matter how small or restricted your contribution, every little bit
counts   and   will   help   the   Allies   to
win the war more quickly," he said.
His Honour offered speolal congratulations and encouragement to
the   B.C.   Contingent   of   the   CO.
T.C., whloh now has an enlistment
of   some   Ave   hundred   graduates
and undergraduates, saying, "Keep
It up."
The  Lieutenant-Governor   referred
to   steps   which' had   been   taken   ln
the dlrectipn of provision of national
"There should be some form of
national scholarships designed to
enable the talents and abilities of
those brilliant young men who,
through circumstances, are unable
to pursue their education, to be further developed to the benefit not
only of themselves but also of their
country,"  he concluded.

To Be Chosen from
Six Candidates
The Arts-Aggie Sweetheart, feature of this year's Arts-Aggie Ball,
will be selected from a maximum of
six candidates, four from the Arts
Faculty and two from Agriculture,
Don McGiil, A.M.U.S. secretary, announced yesterday.
Nomination lists containing at
least twenty signatures ahould be
handed Into the Council Office Immediately. Deadline for nominations
ls noon Saturday, November 4.
In the Arts Faculty, each olass may
nominate as many co-eds as desired.
However, each contestant can be
nominated only by members ot her
At the close of the nominations the
co-ed ln each class with the largest
nomination list will automatically
become that class's official candidate.
This   provision   limits   the   number
of  would-be  Sweethearts  ln  Arts  to
four. On the same basis, the Aggies
can have two final candidates.
Only those students buying tickets
for the Ball may vote. They can Indicate their Sweetheart on the ticket
"We will tolerate no skullduggery
in  this election," warned McGiil.
"Names appearing on more than
one list will be discounted. In order
to ensure fairness to all contestants
lists   will  be  checked  and  rechecked.
"Hence co-eds desiring to be Sweetheart i'or a night are advised to make
sure that their campaign managers
do not get too ambitious."
Todd Tremblay, recently elected
Junior Member, la the man responsible for the extensive home-coming preparations of this week. This
year's schedule of events Is the
most ambitious one ever attempted at a Varsity celebration.
Upheld By
Conscription of Men
Ineffective in War
"Conscription would render Canada less effective In the prosecution
of the present war" was the decision unanimously upheld by students
of the Parliamentary Forum of the
University of B.C. at the noon-hour
debate     Wednesday.      Government
speakers In support of  the resolution  showed  the  Ineffectiveness  of
conscription from military, economic, and nationalistic points of view.
Alf Carlsen, leader of the government, smashed any concerted opposition at the outset when he seized upon the prerogative of his side to define the resolution. His Interpretation
was that conscription should refer to
man-power only.
From a military point of view, he
said, quoting Premier Mackenzie
King, conscription is tactically unwise, for just so long as the men of
this country believe that they are
fighting a defensive war, Just so long
will they fight voluntarily. Once conscription is applied, the moral effect
of defensive fighting ls lost forever.
"Wars are not lost through lack of
man-power," Oarlsen declared, "but
through lack of adequate supplies.
Hence, the role of Canada ln the
present struggle must be that of the
provider, not ot men, but of raw materials. The days of mobilization of
large infantry foroes ls past. Let us
mobilize our supplies."
Speaking on the current election
Issue In Quebec he stated that, whatever the outcome of the present election, the seeds of discontent were
sown ln Quebec by conscription during the last war and that no alleviation from the danger of secession
can be expected until Federal Governments learn to compromise with
the Quebec people.
Leader of the opposition, Bill Back-
man, pointed to the fact that eleven
universities In Canada had already
pledged their brains and resources
for the good ot Canada, maintaining
that this was conscription working to
its greatest effectiveness. Instead of
eleven universities solving a problem
ln eleven different ways, here was
consolidation and efficiency as a central bureau allotted to each university some portion of the work to be
"A period of reconstruction is necessary," he declared, "before we can
have complete national unity. Therefore, if the present Quebec struggle
leads to secession lt may be as well

First threat to the unity of Canada has been frustrated by the
overwhelming defeat of Premier Maurice Duplessis forces in the
Quebec election. The new Premier Adelard Godbout, and his party
boast a smashing victory over the man who claimed that Confederation was unnecessary.
Few students have displayed concern over the eastern crisis,
perhaps because they were blissfully unaware of the dangerous
situation which existed on the far side of their continent, but perhaps, too, because they were certain of the inevitable conquest of
the forces of evil by the forces of good I It is probable that the
former reason bears more weight than the latter.
For the time being it now appears that Canada will be able to
develop, and to prosecute her endeavors in the war as a solid
nation. The British ideal of freedom has beeff upheld, democratic
principles have been more skillfully advertised. The electorate
was presented with the opportunity to express its opinion. It was
told that freedom was being replaced by oppression, freedom of
speech by censorship, democracy by fascism.
The electorate gave its answer . . . "balderdash and bunkum,
To the student who is ostensibly keenly aware of the rights
and privileges of a citizen in a democracy, this election in Quebec
must be an encouragement, and to the critics of the Federal Government, now in power, a bitter blow.
It has been said that the purpose of a university is not to teach
a student to pass examinations in order to obtain a degree, but
rather to teach the student to teach himself, and to think for himself.
Whether or not this university is succeeding in its attempted
attainment of this ideal is a debatable point. The chief feature
of our university life is that any mature thought among the * average' member of this student body is either carefully concealed or
totally absent.
The desire of the average student to contribute to the community which boasts his domicile expresses itself in caustic criticism of those at present in control, or in drab indifference to present day issues and policies.
The Board of Governors of this university, the Students' Council of this Alma Mater Society, the members of the faculty of this
campus all receive their full share of damnation ond scorn nt the
hands of the students. Freedom of speech is, of course, a treasured principle of democracy, but it is itself to be condemned when
the critic's knowledge of facts is superficial, or based on vicious
Criticism from the tongues of the students does not restrict
its field of activity to the university area. Governments ore treated to the same blasts of arrogant opposition by scholars whose age
limit could be placed well below thirties.
Criticism is not, itself, a deplorable characteristic of this
campus, but the lack of thought which obviously accompanies such
a large proportion of the criticism defeats any purpose such criticism may have had.
The students of this university would do well to forget the
idea of automatically opposing the policies and decisions of their
-superiors, and to spend a little more time in consideration of possible reasons for the steps taken, and for steps not taken.
In brief students might benefit from that process known as
"growing-up," both in mind, and body, with considerable emphasis placed on tho former.

The opinion expressed by numerous

not, lend an ear, the following la

"The Huaklea are away pursuing

Thunderbirds well earned their
swamping over the Huskies Wednesday.

exposed to it so much.

chanoe to show his kicking ability

he was hurried lifted the ball for
fifty yards. The Varaity squad has
lt that Capraru is the best defensive
player seen in these parts.

Max Oortler was the Husky who
started the Saskatchewan part of

Paaa catching will be the orders
from now until game time, Saturday, for Coaoh Colb MoEown's
Husky team. Their passing attaok
fell apart at the seams on Wednesday, although young Danny Capraru
was throwing perfeot strikes into
the arms of the receivers.
And so the ends will be out on
the practice field learning to hang
onto the plgakin, and passing will
play an even larger role in the Huskies' game,
The Saskatchewan boys will have
a tough Job on their hands when
they trot out onto the green at the

Great Aerial Offense Paves Way to Three
Major Scores While Saskatchewan
Are Held Scoreless
Unsheathing a dangerous passing attack the Varsity Thunderbirds went sixteen points up on "Saskatchewan *s Huskies at the
Stadium, Wednesday, when they blanked the Prairie squad 16-0.
The game, which was played in bitterly cold weather, was the
flrst of the two-game total point series for the Hardy Cup, now
in the hands of U.B.C.
Por three periods, the Thunderbirds muffled Saskatchewan's
powerful passing attack, and surprised fans by unleashing a lethal
aerial  approach  to  the  Husky  line,  with   Graham   Finlay  and
I Tommy   Willlame   throwing   perfect
atrlkea to the Varaity receivera.
Living up to pre-game notloea waa
young Danny Capraru, triple-threat
man of the Huaklea who ran, kioked,
and paaaed, and then atopped play
after play on defenae with hla demon  tackling.
Capraru, laat year'a star of the
Regina Dales, out-kicked our own
Johnny Pearson if the statistics are
true, who couldn't get set againat
a faat charging Husky line. Here the
credit goea to the Prairie enda who
broke through Varaity'a defenae
forcing Pearson to hurry his klcka.
Johnny, however, was getting them
high, and the Varaity enda had
plenty of time to get down on the
First score of the game came half
way through the flrat quarter when
after losing the ball on the Huaky
12-yard line on a fumble, Finlay ran
the Saskatchewan kick back to the
22-yard line where he threw a paas
intended for Pearson. Nell McLeod,
coming up to knock the pass down,
kicked the ball into the air and Milt
Angus, in on the play, grabbed lt
for a freakish completion on the
Husky eight yard line.
From a close formation, burly Jim
Harmer plowed through the middle
of the Saskatchewan line, for Varsity's first major acore. Harmer
added another point when he booted
the oonvert.
In the third quarter a Varaity paas
paved the way to another soore when
a Finlay to Joplln combination in
the flat netted the Coast team thirty
yards and carried the ball down to
the Ave yard line where Milt Angua
buoked it over for an unconverted
Again in the Anal frame, the new
Varaity aerial offense clicked, thia
time with Tommy Williams throwing the plgakin. It came on the heela
of a brilliant run by Lee Straight
who intercepted a Husky pass on
the 45-yard line and broke through
the secondary for thirty yards, lat-
eralling to Lang on the Afteen,
where he was hit by a host of prairie
Completely surprising the Saskatchewan board of strategy, Tommy
Williams, whom they had been
watching all day in running plays,
faded baok and threw a pass to Joplln who was standing In the end-
sane near the corner flag.
This left the oount at 16-0 where
It remained for the rest of the game,
although the Huskies started clicking with their passes, late In the
Varsity mainstays were Andy Lang
In the baokfleld, and Straight, Smith,
and Stradlottl In the line who handled the Job of stopping Danny Capraru, Husky scoring threat capably.
