$364.77 Collected;
Require $269 To
Fill Mile Strip
• "36,477 PENNIES in four days" was the official statement issued by Ted Scott, treasurer of the committee in
charge of the Mile of Pennies Campaign, after Thursday's
total of 8,662 coppers was added to the growing fund for
milk for Britalns babies. _
The $86.62 collected yesterday marked a decided'decrease from the returns of thetwo previous days, and left
the enormous sum of $268.83 to be obtained before tomorrow
if the objective of a mile of pennies is to be reached.
Today sorority girls are in charge of the campaign, and
an added attraction to entice students to add more pennies
to the chalked lines will be an action sale in the Quad at
A steady downpour of rain was
the cause of the comparatively
poor start of the campaign Monday when only ?51 was collected.
Mr. Percy White, national secretary of the Kinsmen clubs, started
the pennies rolling when he donated 100 shiny new coppers at tlie
pep meet Monday noon. The adverse weather forced collectors indoors and postponed laying the

Hylu-Ows supervised the numerous collection posts and the measured mile in the Quad. Total for
the day was 9111.99, bringing the
amount gathered to 28.6%. of the
mile. This was the day the
sclencemen and the army started
their independent lines, one headed for Dean Flnlayson's office
and the other for the armoury.
Wednesday marked steadily growing Interest ln the campaign, as
fraternity men took over the task
of supervising the drive. $119.20
collected that d<jy brought the total
up to 9178.15, and although It was
an Increase over the previous days'
efforts It proved we had a long
way to go to reach our objective
of 63,360 pennies.
Supplies of pennies ln the Cafe
and A.M.S. office were constantly
running low as students sought to
change silver Into coppers. One
observer stated he had never aeen
so much money scattered around

All For One
The time has come for a good-sized portion of really deserved backslapping. Students, faculty members and army officers
have got right behind our Mile of Pennies
Drive this week with an enthusiasm which
never appeared before in the two and a half
years of U. B. C.'s war program, and as a
result the objective of over 60,000 pennies,
which seemed a rather over-ambitious dream
a week ago, does not seem so far out of reach
Through these columns, officials of the
Kinsmen's Club in charge of the Milk for
Britain's Babies campaign wish to reiterate
their thanks to the people who are co-operating on this campus to help send 1,500,000
quarts of precious milk for starving children
over there before July 1, 1942.
The results of this week show that when
the students of this university get together
and all pull in the same direction we can
really accomplish things. Members of faculties and organizations too numerous to mention have given time from study to supervise the equally numerous "lines" and bottles which cover the campus.    It is a case
of all for one common cause.
And that's just how it should be. We've
finally awakened to a realization that the
student body should have been united in its
war effort long ago. The War Aid Council
was formed because of that realization, and
• the Mile of Pennies Drive is only the first of
several campus-wide campaigns lined up by
its members. Next term the Council is
planning to unite students in a Waiver Campaign for the Red Cross, a War Saving
Stamp Drive to stamp out Hitler, and a carnival week to raise funds for the International Student Service. This all in addition
to the regular war work of the W. U. S.,
the Greeks' Red Cross Ball, and the men's
army training.
The publicity this week's effort is receiving in downtown papers is a factor, too. The
mortal fear of all in official positions on the
campus ls adverse publicity. Well, they can
rest assured that one little story in the news
columns of our Mile of Pennies Drive is
worth one three times as big in the society
pages of a dance.
Campus Clutterers
An incident of serious import has arisen
between a rather belligerent young freshette
and the Discipline Committee of the Alma
Mater Society over the matter of throwing
waste paper on the parking lot. A few
weeks ago three offenders were caught littering the area and summoned to appear before the Discipline Committee. They were
two second year commercemen and the
aforementioned freshette.
However, the Incident serves to prove
that at last student officials have decided to
use action instead of words in endeavoring
to clean up the campus.    Apparently, stu
dents have not taken the repeated pleadings
and warning seriously, and the carelessness
has gone on. Maybe if students know they
are going to have their passes suspended or
fines levied on them they will be more careful where they throw their rubbish and
empty bottles.
Next year members of the Big Block Club
will guard, the parking lot each noon-hour,
looking for offenders. Those caught will be
shown no mercy. Isn't it remarkable to
think that these measures have to be taken
with university students!.
•   Commercial Christmas
As Doris scurried through the crowd on
the way to work she realized how
much she had come to dislike Christmas.
Its the commercialism of it she thought to
herself. Ever since the middle of November
ever yshop and salesman has been blabbing
about Christmas—so many shopping days
to Christmas—buy Fink's flowers for HER
on Christmas—buy Splatt's Super Shaving
Soap and give Dad something he'll really
like—Here's soap in your eye, Doris
thought. Besides, Dad had an electric
razor. The Chirst's gone out of Christmas,
she thought.
All day in the office this 4.clca kept popping into her mind. People kept passing
her desk with a "Merry Christmas, Miss
Fenley," "Merry Christmas," she murmured" . . . sour grapes" It'd be all over the day
after tomorrow, anyway.
Oh, there was a certain gaiety in the
air alright, but it wasn't the right sort of
laughter and song that comes with every
bottle from the G. I. S. Christmas should
be a time of soft light, music, happiness,
real genuine good humour, Doris thought.
"Peace on earth, goodwill to men," what
a laugh—peace with everyone bombing hell
out of everything over in Europe. Goodwill
with Jones trying to sell his goods over
Smith, taking advantage of Christmas to
make more money. They've forgotten the
frankincense and myrrh and they only remember the gold.
Even dressing the tree last night hadn't
been particularly fun—the brittle glare of
the lights and the sparkle of the tinsel, even
the glow of the colored balls had seemed
harsh, artificial, commercial.
You've just got a bug in your brain,
Doris told herself. The kid brother and
sister, twins, had got a kick out of it. Just
the same as you did ten years back in the
little one-horse town. It had been real fun,
Christmas had, back there. But then it
couldn't be commercialized—there was only
one store in the place. But still everyone
had been so—so—so—so friendly and interested and neighborly. And cutting the tree
out in the woods, with the snow thick on
the branches instead of buying it at the
hardware store. The snow. It had made a
lot of difference having snow instead of this
misty, yellow rain. The rain was enough
to dampen anyone's spirits.
But then Christmas was made for the
kids. After all it was the birthday of the
infant Christ. But religion was so futile
nowadays—the church had the wrong slant
on things. But at least it wasn't commercialized. It'd been fun going to church on
Christmas as a kid. Trudging through the
snow -with a snap in the air that made your
fingers tingle, and bit at your ear, and then
the friendly warmth of the church and everyone smiling and looking so happy and singing as loud as you couid and then going
home afterwards jumping in the snow drifts
and lying in the untouched smooth places
and making angels and leaping away carefully so as not to disturb the snow around,
and then opening the presents  around the
tree, Dad dressed up as Santa Clause, and
everyone pretending they didn't know it
was Dad, and his false beard getting twisted,
and the mustache falling off, and the pillow
oozing out between his trousers and shirt
when he bent over. The thrill of getting
something you wanted so badly—the skates,
the sled with your name on it—or the sharp
disappointment when something you'd expected wasn't there.
The neighbours used to come in with
some home-made goodies—cranberry jam,
candy, mince pie, apple cider, comparing
presents. And then the dinner. Stuffing
yourself as you thought you'd burst and not
being able to move hardly. There was still
that, of course—the turkey, and plum pudding with the sprig of holly (from the store)
and the burning brandy, and the presents.
But I know just what I'll get—cheque from
from the twins, candy from Joe, perfume
from Ted, and stockings, the wrong size,
from Jim.
When she went home with the 5:30 rush
the rain had stopped and it was clear and
cold. At least I won't have to work tomorrow, Doris thought. It's really the month
before that's the worst with the cheap commercialism. I wish all the advertisers were
thrown in a big pit and buried, and then we'd
have some peace. And you can include Hitler in that pit bunch too!
Even at home she couldn't get away from
the advertising. The radio blaring "Hark
the Herald Angels Sing of the beautiful new
deluxe Packard for a special Christmas treat
for the family." Or "Make your cranberry
jelly with Cran-jell, the new smooth jelly
with the five delicious cranberry flavors."
She was cold when she woke up, and
when she looked out of the -window she saw
with surprise and sudden joy that it was
snowing. "A white Christmas; just like old
times." The twins were already awake
and the eradio was crooning "Hark the Herald Angels Sing," this time without any
Packard. I guess it's too late to advertise
now, Doris thought, the idea of yesterday
returning with the hymn. Thank God for
that, anyway.
Going to church seemed more like old
times—the snow, the bells clanging in the
still air, everything smiling. In the church
the candles on the altar flickered w i t h a
triendly wink and gave out a soft warm
glow. The choir had just sung "Holy night,"
and the minister was starting his sermon.
Doris glanced out of the window. The snow-
was falling gently, peacefully. That's what
I said yesterday, Doris thought, for children.
But that's all wrong—it's for us too, we're
all Christ's children.
After the service, going home in the softly
falling snow, Doris felt elated. The twins
were romping on ahead, trying to scrape up
enough snow for a snowball fight.
"Peace on earth, goodwill toward men."
Yes, it's all the time before Christmas that
I hate, Doris thought. They can't touch
Christmas itself. It'a too late to sell anything on Christmas.

P. Scott. Perhapa a fitting subtitle would be "America — land
of opportunity."
Pratho, according to recent news
stories, has taken out a patent on
the "V for Victory" slogan In the
United States of America and
"now he stands to make a fortune
for its commercial use." Although
the patent ls not definite many
commercial firms have already
made offers to him for It.
So we nominate Mr. Scott for
the Slug-of-the-year award. This
places Pratho P. right up there
with the manufacturers of "V for
Victory" jewellry and the guy
who slaps a "V" on his car and
then rides all over the country
feeling very patriotic.
We hope that Pratho P. never
gets benevolent enough to donate
some of the fortune he stands to
make to a war charity. The picture of a European mother urging
her fatherless child to "drink your
milk darling, that nice American
man, Mr. Scott, sent It to you"
does not appeal to us.
Can't you picture the child saying "What does he do,  mommy?"
"Why he made a fortune out
of the "V" for victory" slogan,
"Isn't that what Daddy got shot
for, momy?"
"Yes, your father was a nice
man but not very bright, he was
foolish  enough to  be  patriotic."
So the little infant drinks his
milk and resolves that he will
grow up to be a great man like
the  American  Pratho  P.  Scott.
To conclude we would like to
wish. We wish that Pratty should
get caught In the draft. Then we
wish that he would be placed under Corporal James Stewart. Mr.
Stewart Is an American—typical
if the Americans we like to think.

use to us in this office. I like, too,
the classified headings at the end,

EDITOR'S NOTE: Thanks to
Reader Mawdsley for her letter.
The classification noted, however,
Is not a new feature, having been
included   last   year.
The Editor,   The  Ubyssey,
We were moved by the plea for
recognition contained in the last
three paragraphs of "One Man's
Opinion" in the November 28th
Issue of the Ubyssey. The writer
expressed the view that Ubyssey's
Jabez was not receiving the credit
due him when his column was being reprinted by the Alberta University paper, The Gateway. The
writer also took the opportunity
to make an unwarranted remark
about the Gateway's ". . . collection of standard jokes under the
title 'Casserole'  .  .  .".
May we bring to the writer's
attention that in the two former
reprints of "The Mummery" in
The Gateway, both Jabez and tho
Ubyssey have been credited with
the column. May we also point out
out that The Gateway is not the
only paper guilty ln this respect.
Or ls it purely coincidental that
all the jokes In the November 28th
issue of the Ubyssey were formerly published ln the November
7th and November 14th Issues of
The Gateway.
Yours truly,
Three Indignant Albertans.

e THE WEEK ending December
6, 1940, was a sad one for thia
University as she looked back on
the previous weekend when one
of her most illustrious sons, Howie
McPhee, passed «*way after a short
Illness . . . Booklegging was rampant in the Caf as studious undergrads prepared anywhere and any
time for the dreaded Christmaa
quizzes. A familiar dodge was to
disguise their volumes as lunches
. . . The basketball squad marked
up Its seventh straight win as the
boys prepared for a vacation
jaunt through Washington . . .
S.C.M. made Its annual promise to
bring out Santa Claus at ita usual
post-exam (that Is, post mortem)
party . . .
. . . And so this column wishes
the same to you. Also good luck
—may you be with us a year from
tbls week.

Indignant Freshette vs Discipline Comm.

In view of her failure to appear
before them to answer the charge,
the Discipline Committee has levied a fine of 92.00 for "contempt
of committee"; and will move to
confiscate her pass, if and when

• THE UNIVERSITY has lost one
of its most promising graduates
by the death of John Kenneth
Jacob. He entered the Faculty of
Applied Science, after attending
Prince of Wales high school, and
graduated ln forest engineering in
1933. Switching to Arts, he took
his B.A. in 1935 and his M.A. with
first class honours ln Zoology and
Botany in 1938 — all by the time
he was 27 years old.
Under a Carnegie Graduate
scholarship for research he made
a painstaking study of the Insects attacking all stored food
products In the port of Vancouver,
his research ranging from corner
grocery stores to grain elevators
and flour mills. He was the foremost expert in Canada on these
dreaded wood destroyers, termites, having Investigated the complicated life cycle of local species.
His publications range from
systematic and distributional to
faunal studies in entomology: Dr.
R. E. Hardy of Utah Agricultural
College named a new Insect species In hla honour.
Recognizing his wide experience
and extremely precise nature of
his work, the Dominion government employed him for two seasons to collect certain rare specimens tor the National Museum at
Leland Stanford University a-
warded him a fellowship ln 1939
and it was while he was proceeding there to work under the
world's recognized authority on
micro-entomology, Dr. Gordon
Ferris, that he became HI and was
forced to enter hospital.
Kindly, unobtrusive, Modest,
Kenneth, liked by all who knew
him. waa better known In the
scientific world than ln tha aoclal.
He leaves hla parents, Mr. and
Mrs. R. S. Jacob of thla elty.

• THB YEAR 1941 Is tha twenty-
first birthday year of the Canadian Student Christian Movement and la being made an occasion of celebration across the whole
of the continent.
Twenty-one yeara ago there
gathered at the Ontario Agricultural College ln Guelph about
seventy-five unlveralty students
and out of their deliberations came
the formation of the Student
Christian Movement ot Canada.
Thia movement took over the work
on the University campuses that
the Y.M.C.A. and the Y.W.CA.
had been doing and went forward
to develop Its own program.
During ths yeara of Ita existence more than 4000 studenta In
the country have had close contact with this movement and thla
year efforts are being made to
contact all c_ these people ao that
the work of the movement can ba
reviewed and plana can be laid
for the future of tha movement.
At Aurora thare wilt gather from
Dm 98 to IT about IM people —
seventy-five graduates and aevm-
ty-flve undergraduates from all
•actions of Canada.
Already throughout the country
the people who are to attend this
gathering are pceparlng for ths
discussions that will tak* place
thare bringing forward auggea-
tlona regarding the movement,
seeking alwaya to improve it —
to make it fit into the needs of
the preaent day more effectively.
At various other places near the
large university centres regional
gatherings will be held to bring
together students and undergraduates to consider these problems
and to ask how they can best face
up to the demands of modern life
as Christians. A similar regional
gathering will be held in Vancouver   this  December.

f THE TITLE of this little
piece looks as if it might
be an obituary column. Actually it is not, but for all
practical purposes it could
very well be one. for the
Honorable T. D. Pattullo,
premier of British Columbia
legislature and for the last
quarter of a century leader
of the Liberal Party, has
reached the end of the political trail.
Rejected by both the people of
the province and now by hia own
party, Mr. Pattullo must unwillingly relinquish the reins of his
office, climb down from the driver's seat which will alwaya bear
the imprint of his portly frame,
and take a plaoe way way back
In the legislative bandwagon. In
short, he is all washed up.
Mr. Pattullo haa gone the way
of aU political flesh. He had hla
day when all was glory, when he
was hailed a great fellow apd one
our province couldn't do -without.
Now he Is experiencing the unpleasant throes of the defeated
upon whose head rebuffs and derisions are heaped. Soon, perhaps,
he will receive tributes for the
long and noble service he has rendered and the many commendable
undertakings he has engineered
during hia term of public leadership.
Mr. Pattullo had many fine
qualities and also several which
were not so fine. Maybe it was
really his over-zealous love for
British Columbia which made him
act the way he did at the Dominion Conference at Ottawa last January. And then again, maybe it
was just plain love of Patullo.
Whatever It -was that prompted
him to join his two playmates from
Alberta and Ontario and wreck the
conference -which could have done
so much to unite Canada in the
time of greateat need, lt certainly
didn't Increase hla dubious popularity.
If tm election had been held when
he returned from that aad r..oot-
lng, Mr. Pattullo wouldn't have
had to worry one lota'about getting
ministers to fill his mythical cabinet. Someone else would have had
the pleasure of forming a cabinet
—and leading it.
Maybe it -was also an impassioned love for British Columbia
which made Mr. Pattullo so determined to carry on as premier -when
everyone but Mr. Pattullo thought
he should let somebody else help
hint do the job of governing the
province. Maybe he really believed he had become so much a
part of the Parliament Buildings
that they would tumble down the
minute anyone but he occupied the
premier's office. Maybe he honestly thought that he was doing the
utmost for our war effort by remaining in his office, regardless of
whether he had a majority, or even
a cabinet.
But whatever Mr. Patullo thought
or did, It does not matter very
much now. Others have taken it
upon themselves to think and act,
and they have decided that Mr.
Pattullo is no longer a necessity
at   Victoria.       They   have   politely
told him to get the h out.
"Pattulloism" in our democratic
province has ended. The cartoonists will have to practise drawing
other faces.

Guy Cawley, 2nd year commerce has come to the library at
8:30 every morning since he arrived at the university this term
from Nelson, B.C. He lives a
block and a half from the gates
and comes to Varsity on the bus.
"I come early to the library because It is quiet and I can study
best then," commented Guy, who
took his senior matrlc at Nelson
before coming to U.B. C.
He didn't seem to think his early
arrival at the library wa3 much of
a feat, but to one who arrives regularly at 8:29 It was remarkable.
Close behind his heela was another early riser, a 3rd-year arts-
man, who preferred to remain anonymous. This was Mr. X's first
early morning visit to the library
and he had made it In order to
get his favorite seat, up ln the junior wing. Another out-of-towner,
he hailed from Duncan, B.C.

Courses claim that they have the
solution to Post War problems.
Prof. Ronald Hilton, Dr. J. A.
Crumb and Bob McKenzie debated
' on Thursday, taking as their topic
"Post War Reconstruction," under the auspices of the C. S. A.
Professor Hilton outlined a policy of language changes. He
maintained that the major national troubles arose because there
were too many languages. As a result there Is no basis for nations
to understand each other. He said
that English would be the major
language after the war, while
French, Spanish and German
would be the spokes of the wheel
supporting the hub.
As an economist, Professor Crumb
understood the solution to lie In
the solving of Germany's economic
troubles. Never again, he said,
must we suppress this nation
merely to keep her out of the
markets of the world. A sympathetic attitude in this direction would
never again give Germany i
chance to start a war.
Bob McKenzie attacked the problem by using a platform of international co-operation. The nations must come back to the League of Nations Idea. He blamed
the United States and later several
nations for "reneging" on tho
policy of co-operation. After these
short talks each member of the
symposium took the opportunity to
attack the points of the others.

own tents and equipment, and make
their own trails, for Mount Garibaldi ia atlll virgin wilderness, unmarked by trails or aklcamps.
Although there la no definite trail
especially in the winter, and although none of the members have
attempted the trip before, the
country ls well known to several
of the party, and there Is no danger of their being lost.
A meeting will be held on Friday for all those Interested ln

After the New Year, plans are
underway for a series of exhibition games with Nanaimo, Plywoods, and possibly a practice
game with Norvans. Also a trip is
being planned to take in Seattle and
Portland against the universities
down there.
A suggestion has been  made to
have   a   game   between   a   mllltla
unit  and  the  C.   O.  T.  C,   which
sounds like a very good idea.
Asked about the games with the
University of California and the N.

have written four letters to the
manager of the Stanford team, but
each tune they replied, 'No dice'!
As far as the N. H. L. game, the
Maple Leafs wrote they can't possibly come out this year, but they
sure would like to come out next
The team is exactly the same aa
last year with the exception of
powerful Jim Harmer. Several
good prospects have shown up,
namely: Dick Saunders and Bill
Husband, who both played for the
Vernon Hydrophones, a crack junior team; Harvery Carprtichael, a
freshman, from the Princeton district; also Syd. Drew, ""'ho played
for Plywoods last yea,.
Ted Stevenson statea that the
team as a whole ls stronger than
ever this year, but the defense Is
rather weak, especially the spot
vacated  by   "Big  Jim"   Harmer.
