May Feature A.M.S.
Meeting Wednesday
#    The annual meeting of the Alma Mater Society of the
University of British Columbia will be held next Wednesday, March 26, in the Auditorium.
Notice of a request to the Regis
trar, asking that 11:30 lecturea be
i cancelled on that date, was filed
in the A.M.S. Office yesterday
The findings of the special committee formed to make a report on
gtudent government wlU be made
known to the meeting.
According to A.M.S. prexy Harold Lumsden, business of a general
nature will be dlacuaaed. Questioned as to several extraordinary resolutions which it 1* rumoured wiU
be offered at the meeting, Lumsden
asked that atudent* be reminded
that at least 800 students muat be
preaent to constitute the quorum
required to ratify or reject th*
proposed amendment* to A.M.S.
It is learned here that the foUowing resolutions wlU b* proposed
at next Wednesday'* meeting:
1. That Council election* be conducted ln the aame manner a* city
aldermanic or federal cabinet elections; that seven membera (apart
from President and Treasurer) be
elected aa a bloc, not. specifying
Council position*. (Thia la th* plan
outUned by a Ubyssey columnist
last  week).
2. That the President and Treasurer be exempt from payment of

Building" be hereafter referred to
as  "Brock Hall."
4. That steps be taken to plaoe
a memorial plaque (a question
tabled by previous Councils) on
the space originally provided for
lt on the front of the Brock Building.
8. That continuity of Council be
hereafter effected by the election
of two Council members ln January; these two members to sit on
Council meetings for the rest of
the  year   as  non-voting  members.
Clerical Staff
Sends Parcels
To Men O'seas
• "The Canadian mall Is ln. Can
we come and get something for
our wards and men?"
This question, asked of one
nursing sister at a hospital ln
England by her fellow nurses testifies to the war work done by
the   clerical   staff   at  U.B.C.
These workers contribute not
only to the B. C. Co-ordinating
Council, but also to the Sister
Webley Club, by means of which
parcels are sent directly to men
in hospitals In Britain.
Donated pencils, handkerchiefs,
pocket combs, mirrors, packs of
playing cards, cigarettes, as well as
the usual knitted articles such as
socks, scarves, and body belts,
form the main contents of th-o
parcels made up by members of
the  U.B.C.  clerical  staff.
'1919' Naughty
—hut Library
Says Rush Is On
• The Ubyssey is not In the habit
of giving "plugs" and free publicity. It seems, however, that last
w-ek's Literary Supplement is to
some degree responsible for a
small stampede for the works of
John Dos   Passos.
The book review Included in
that Iesuv: "1919" met with a
mixed reception; some liked It.
some didn't -- but library attendants admitted that approximately
half-a-dozen requests for the
works of Author Dos Passos had
been received in the space of a
little  less  than  an  hour,
Quiz Reveals
Attitude On
UBC Society
0    Answering   a    S. C. M.
questionnaire on social
barriers, 77 students expressed their opinions on subjects ranging from the value
of sororities and fraternities
in campus1 life to the question
of Alderman Wilson's suggestion that Vancouver Oriental residences be segregated.
Sixty-three of the atudenta disagree flatly with Alderman Wilson's stand, one of them suggested that Mr. Wilson himself should
be segregated. The plan was
branded as undemocratic and compared to Hitler'* antl-Semltiam.
Most of those answering the
quiz agreed that a student's economic status makes a difference in
his social standing and a large
number also considered that
Oreek letter societies Intensify
social   barriers.
On the question of military
service, 52 students felt conscientious objectors should be granted
exemption, and that some alternative service should be offered.
New courses were advocated, especially ln medicine, law, llbrari-
anshlp, marriage, and sex education.
Heralds Spring
On Campus
S Celebrating the arrival of spring
on the campus, Dorwln Baird
of CJOR and Pierre Berton of the
Radio Society yesterday afternoon
lay in wait outside the Auditorium
to interview obvious looking
couples about this year's crop of
spring fever.
At 4:19. the microphones were
opened and for the next five minutes Baird arid Berton Intercepted
several of the Inevitable pairs of
men and women on their way to
view the wonderful scenery on the
spring-blessed beach.
No mistake was made about
holding the broadcast on March
20, for spring arrived a day early
because of recent leap years.

^ Surpassing even last
year's outstanding presentation of "Pride and Prejudice", veteran Players*
Club members this week
scaled new heights in their
performance of George Bernard Shaw's "Candida". Six
curtain calls amid frantic applause and bravos from Wednesday's student audienoe
climaxed the . first evening
Mary McLorg, ln the title role
achieved the difficult feat of looking both matronly and glamorous.
Her portrayal of the **r*n* Candida was satisfying to th* moat

James Mor.U, Arthur Hill rolled

in the role of the aharp-tongued

under the influence of her flrat

In the minor role of the curate,
John Powell gave the successful
imitation of his superior that hi*
part called for.
The realistic set was a credit to
the Club's amateur carpenters. The
paneUed wall* and bookcases -were
substantial-looking, and the w*U-
arranged properties transformed
the Auditorium stage into a gracious living room reflecting the
heroine's personality.
The trailing late Victorlan,dresses

clerical suits of the two clergymen, and the more gaudy costumes
of Marchbanks and Burgeas. Candida's beautiful gowns were the
particular pride of the student

Co-Operative Houses
The open meeting next week of the
Student Co-operative group on the campus
should prove of wide interest. There were
three co-operative houses for boys this past
year and one for girls, and from all accounts
they have been a great success. Board and
room charges, so formidable to out of town
students, have been reduced to a minimum,
yet living  conditions have been excellent.
The students who stayed ln these "coops" are well satisfied for the most part.
Tlie meeting next week is to get other students interested in the movement so that
expansion may again be possible next year.
Co-ops have appeared on a great many
American campuses where they have made
lt possible for students to attend college
who previously had not been able to do so.
No doubt they will prove just as valuable
here. The whole movement is worthwhile
and should be encouraged. As lt will probably be a long time before dormitories are
built at Point Qrey, any move like the cooperative one, to make up to some extent
for the lack of dormitories, must be supported. A great many out of town students will
find it worth while to attend this meeting.
Alma Mater Meeting
The various suggestions that are circulating around the campus with regard to
what should be done at the coming Alma
Mater meeting are all very Interesting. But
it ls important to note that no change can
be made ln the A.M.S. constitution without
the presence of a quorum.
The most important resolution that will
probably be offered is the suggestion to
change the method of election of the Student
Council. One danger that everyone must
consider before he votes in favour of auch
a resolution is the possibility of the development of political parties on the campus as
the result of such a system. It would do
no good to split the campus between
for instance, fraternity and non-fraternity
groups. There was a split last year under
the old system, of course.
The question of exemption of the president and the treasurer from their university
fees is a matter for the Board of Governors
to decide. Any large expression of opinion
on this matter at the meeting will no doubt
have some influence with the Board. This
aeema to be the only university in Canada
where such a practice is not followed. Undoubtedly, it would be possible to secure
to best men for the most difficult jobs under
such a plan.
The Inclusion of the price of a Totem
In the Alma Mater fee is another plan that
is followed all across the country. It places
tiie yearbook on a much firmer financial
basis, and makes possible a larger and
better publication. Such an addition to the
fees would raise it from thirteen dollars to
fifteen dollars. Those who did not wish to
pay the extra fee would be able to sign
certificates during a definite period of the
year, and receive their two dollars back.
Such a plan would obviate the necessity of
"Totem Week" and similar campaigns. Such
a plan is not being suggested because of any
failure of the old method this year. Sales
are higher than ever being over the thousand mark, advertising promises to bring in
more money than ever, and no more copies
have been ordered than have been reserved.
These matters should be considered by
everyone before the meeting itself so that
the right decision on each one may be made.
Across  Canada
Again this campus has been subjected to a bombardment of Young
Communist League leaflets.
Distributing its paper with the
tiUe "Th. Student Beacon", the
League intends to bring "light to
all the mis-begotten students who
are stumbling in the dark cellar
of democracy."
The Varsity, organ of Toronto
University, and the "Beacon" have
been engaged in a journalistic -war
for some time.  The  college  paper
accuses the Y.C.L. leaflet of bad
journalism, whereupon the Beacon replies that "If they had to
dodge the R.C.M.P., their paper
would not be up to much either.'
•    •    •    •
—The Queens Journal, commenting on the disemination of Communist propaganda on Canadian
university campuses, printed this
"It no longer becomes a question
of whether or not Communism or
Fascism wiU work in Canada, but
of whether or not people stlU possess the right to print material
which is definitely detrimental to
tho war effort, and a threat to the
unity which we now need more
than ever. This is one point upon
which public opinion ad the
authorities are in complete agreement. Referring to this incident,
Principal Walace declraed 'We
don't want that sort of thing here'.
We think students all across Canada will bear him out ln this attitude."

babies were presented to the university by the two sheep that Uve
in  the enclosure  in  the stadium.

A* yet, no one haa decided what

Acadia Puzzled
At B.C. Spring
• StruggUng ln the throes of a
March blizzard, a student of
Acadia University In Nova Scotia
writes that Acadian* are somewhat
startled by a recent Ubyssey statement that "spring ls here". "It
offers," he adds, "a serious set-back
to our preconceived notion* of
'long hard winter*' with Indian*
and mission doctors floundering
madly about on anowaho**."
In conclusion he laud* the U.B.C.
Red Cross drive, suggesting that
"this aupport of th* nation'* war-
effort ahould serve a* a bond uniting *a*t coaat and w**t—Acadl*
and th* University of Britiah Columbia.

0    Modestly hidden on the
North Arm of the Fraser River at the foot of Blenheim Street is, believe it or
not, a piece of Varslty'a far-
flung campus. For there resides the U.B.C. Rowing
A stretch of muddy sand, covered
by wreck*, old log*, and sometimes floods, surrounds the boat-
house, which is reached by crossing
a ditch over the crudest of bridge*.
The Rowing Club haa long existed, originally as the Boat Club.
Four years ago, however, the modern organization was born when
a revival struck the boys, who decided to build their own clubhouse. Before that they operated
at the Vancouver Rowing Club on
Coal   Harbour.   When   the  change
was made, the club chas* th* Fr**-

(30 1* the active average) and not
having enough equipment to handl*

new club aport shirts, which mad*
it* debut recently on Secretary
Phil Fltz-Jama*.
The regular rowing season, from
September to April, consists of
strenuous pulls two and a half
miles to Marpole and back. This
year mlUtary training has forced
the lads to do their jaunting on
Sunday mornings Instead of the
usual Saturday afternoons.
Thla has its drawbacks. For Instance, one week while Crew Captain John Slater was out with the
heavyweights, five of the lightweight crew waited unsuccessfully
•   "My    Ideal    Co-ed?",    and    a
dreamy look crept into th*
twinkling eyes of $i. good-looking
new A.M.S. accountant—"That's
easy ! She's a blue-eyed brunette,
stands about five feet four inches
tall, and can make perfect apple
pie !" Then, as if to quell the hope
dawning In the face of the female
reporter, he add misohlevlously,
"She's my wife."
Arthur McKlm, who succeeds
Sutherland Horn in the ' A.M.S.
Ofice, likes his new job immensely, although for his first week he
felt "almost less than useless,
getting used to the rather confusing U.B.C. routine." However, h*
thinks he'll stay.
When the Inevitable subject of
knee socks arose, Mr. McKlm
showed a subtle humour,—"Oh, I
think some girl* can wear them,"
he aald, but when questioned a* to
exactly what typ* of girl, h* **•-
piled with, "You'v* got m*,—I've
never seen her yet I"
Mr. McKlm'a chief hobble*, (besides raving about his *ev*n-month
old baby girl, Donna) ar* sailing
up the sound in a 30 ft. sloop, and
directing the lighting *ff*ot* for
th* Attic Player* Club. Thl* group

four one-act plays every season,
including one or more performances for the Blind Institute.

play, for th* blind, and also ln
tho actions, for the deaf. It la a
marvelous training ln definite
stag* technique. It might be a good
idea for the U.B.C. Players' Club."
"By th* way, my favorite d*s**rt

Mr. McKlm, and with that he had
to dash off to Interview • worried-

mixture—full of flavour—mild
and cool. Try a pipe today.
In pouches, packages and Vi lb. tins.
one hundred Varsity basketball enthusiasts, including team
and supporters, embarked at 10:30 this morning for Victoria
ln quest of the final win which will wrest the Provincial
Championship from the tempermental Dominoes.
Business Manager Stewart McMorran and his No. 1
Assistant Bill Norton are going around the deck beaming at
the goodly crowd of fans they rounded up for the invasion,
assuring everyone that a block of first-class seats has been
reserved right behind the players' bench in the Willows Oym
for the series. But nobody thinks we'll be here more than
one night, and any Victoria money offered is being snapped
up by Varsity betters who figure the 'Birds are a cinch to
take the title three straight tonight.
Oeorge Sibourne, the youthful arbitor who has been rehired for the Victoria games, is on board, as are Leo Nicolson
and Stu Keate, sports editors of the Province who will jointly
broadcast the series over CJOR.
Coach Maury Van Vliet has just taken the players down
to the saloon for lunch of dry toast, without any liquids. The
boys, are all in fine shape and rarln' to go, but they won't
make any predictions, the superstitious bunch.
We have been warned aplenty about how the Dominoes
are a different team on their own floor, but that hot air
isn't scaring any of the Thunderbirds.    You see, they are
fettlng tired of hearing the Islanders blow about their big,
ad, crabby cagers.
