Pamphleteering Rampant
Over McGill Suspension
•   McGILL UNIVERSITY Student Council has accepted
the resignation of Raymond Ayoub, Editor-in-chief of the
McGill Daily, William Munroe, news manager, E. D. Joseph,
managing editor, and Bob Macintosh, CUP editor.
Next   year's   staff   .previously     ,^________________________
chosen, have taken over the publication of the Daily for the remaining Issues this term, and following
the granting of permission by tho
Senate .resumed publication Monday night.
The resigning staff protest the
Senate suspension action and tho
failure of the Council to represent
student opinion. A petition has
been signed railing for a second
student society meeting to oust the
Council for reversing their policy
of supporting the Commerce students responsible for the Commerce issue In question.
The embattled McGill Campu3
last week took on something of the
atmosphere of pre-revoluntlonary
France with the blossoming of unofficial   pamphlets  protesting  the
suspension of the daily and presenting the students side of the
controversy with the Senate.
Posters have been hung about the
campus notice boards. Ono depicts
the McGill University crest with
jester's caps substituted for crows,
its open book closed and padlocked
and its three martlets dtawn with
their wings covering their eyes,
mouth and ears. Other notice
boards carry news of student
events and meetings.
Another of the unofficial publications that appeared was The
Plumbers' Press, a single mimeographed sheet containing notices
of campus rvents and editorials
dealing with the banning of the
The question of the high cost of graduating from UBC has at last come to a head.
Last year the grad executives left the question until too late and were unable to get
anywhere with their request. This year's
executive have started early and built up
an estimate of the expenditures involved in
launching the class of '43 into the cold, cruel
If the estimate of the expenditures is
erroneous then there is only one way for the
Board of Governors to prove it and that is
to give out an official statement of the expenditures so that the students will have
something definite to go on. It seems unfair
that .we should be asked to pay fifteen dollars without having some idea of what is
being done with it.
President Klink, in a statement to the
Vancouver Province, has indicated that the
graduate can save $2.50 by returning his
hood after the ceremony.
This statement is perfectly true, and it
is also true that few students take advantage of the offer. Two things we have been
told. The first is that the Diploma costs
$4.00 and the Hood $3.50 if you want to
keep it. There fore tiie two things which
you can keep to remember graduation and
the two things the folks back home will
want to see cost $7.50. Tne suggestion of the
president's that we eliminate one of these
is practical we admit, but it is only half of
the picture.
The other part of the picture is the $7.50
not accounted for. This goes for tea, flowers,
music, commissionaires and other items,
which the board of governors has decreed
are necessary for a proper graduation.
The student executive has done their
best to estimate the expenditures for these
items, and after being more generous than
was necessary, they brought out a total over
1200 dollars less than the $5550 that the
university collects for the ceremony (estimates are based on a grad class of 370).
Basing their claims on this they feel that the
Grad fee could be slashed to around $10 for
each grad. Then adopting the President's
suggestion of turning in tiie hood the fee
could be reduced another $2.50 to $7.50.
So it is because of the unaccounted for
$7.50 that the members of the graduation
class have signified by a petition that they
will not pay their fees. If the powers that
be will not account for our money then we
have a right to set out what we think is a
just fee.
A careful survey by the Grad executives has shown that other universities
charge up to $10, there is no reason to assume that our ceremony is any better than
theirs and that the traditional frills of our
show cannot be done without.
If the members of the graduation class
•tick together and refuse to pay up they
should get some action. It will look very
silly if no one gets a degree from the university of British Columbia in 1943, after
370 people have worked four or five years
to get degrees. Are we to assume that that
work means nothing unless we go through a
We urge the grads to hang together. If
a few students lose their courage and pay up
then the case of the others will be weakened.

can be no reason for stopping us. If you
signed the petition, then stand by it.

In flames last night, they line the hospitable
stools of today's coffee shops, guzzling and
dunking, wondering what in the hell will
become of them all. They're looking for
something, and they don't know what it is.
They won't find it, because you can't see an
itch. And they itch.

head, mustard-chinned, for home at the
stroke of twelve. But wait until the crowds
have gone, and meet the real life, true-life
characters who slip onto the still-warm
stools, all through tiie night. Philosophers,
pimps, policemen and pipe-fitters; they all
have a story to tell.
Tales of violence, tales of sorrow, of lust,
of forget-me-not, unsullied love, of delight,
anguish and revenge.
Take Tommy, for instance. I met Tommy the other night when he stepped in,
walking backward, at three a.m., into an all-
night coffee shop. The waitress, a prairie
girl who is recovering from a nervous breakdown amid the clatter of dishes, greeted him
with an affectionate screech.
"So", she cried, "you're adrift again."
"You damned fool, Tommy. You know
what you'll get for this."
"I know, I know. I'll get 365 hours of
heavy pack duty, done on the double. Don't
give a damn. Done it before."
Tommy sat on the edge of his stool,
close to the back door, ready for a precipitate exit, should one be necessary. He wore
the tight-fitting uniform of the Royal Canadian Navy; and the markings on his sleeve
indicated that he was a stoker. His survivor's leave ended a week ago, and he has been
dodging the shore patrol ever since; on and
off street cars, through alleys and streets.
That's Navy for being "adrift" or A.W.O.L.
You see there is a girl. And this is his
first real leave since the war started. His
ship was sunk near Malta. And so Tommy,
who is 22, and has peculiarly wide, sooty-
lashed eyes in a deadpan face, is going to
stay adrift until he's ready to give himself
up. Then he'll take what's coming to him.
No alibis, no excuses. But you get the impression that even the threat of a keel-hauling or the rack wouldn't make the slightest
difference. He's properly "browned off"; and
when he's ready to go, he'll go. But not
before. Unless they nab him first.
Tommy's no angel. But he isn't exactly
hardrock either. Maybe, in a way, he's a
fair example of what this war is going to do
to a lot of the members of this generation
who see action, and plenty of it. You get
careless of the social amenities, sort of. No.
not you, my little moppets. But the Tommys
But consider, if you will, the classic ingredients of romance which run through
Tommy's tale of how he lost his Petty officer's rating. There is romance, violence, a
woman's virtue assailed, and that virtue
finding—as is fitting—a protector.
"This guy" ( an officer) Tommy declares, "he said something about my girl no
man could take. What he called her—there
couldn't be nothing lower than that, in the
"He called her a green hornet".
And thereupon the guy and Tommy began to beat each other violently about the
head and ears, and other spots. Forcibly
halted, the battle resunted again, in greater
fury, when Tommy went up to his opponent's
hotel room. Only, this time, six of them
formed the melee. The damage to the room
was considerable. Tommy lost his rating.
Tommy doesn't care.
What is a green hornet? Don't ask me
to explain; but don't apply the term to any
sailor's girl. That's all. She may be Tommy's,
and Tommy maye be still adrift, just around
the corner, up tiie alley.

Cheer Leader, UBC,
Vancouver, B.C.,
Dear Sir:—I was possibly the
only Air Force supporter at the
game recently held in your gymnasium, and if you will permit me,
I would like to make a few comments on the game, but more particularly on the Cheer-leading.
I'd firr.t like to mention that I
have attended U. of W. and so
possibly can be quoted cs a voice
of experience.
With regard to the game I felt
that the UBC supporters, and
yourself included, we were very
poor sports when it came to accepting the referee's decisions. It
is true that they were rather
"raw", but nevertheless a referee
has a job to do—let him do it and
abide by his decisions.
Then comes cheer-leading. You
know you are terrible—don't you.
You are, but I don't blame you In
the least. The support that you
getting Friday's game was an example, would be enough to make
McKenzie King disgusted enough
to go and get married. My advice
is to keep on trying and then maybe some day, in the far distant
future, you can get a little more
enthusiasm out of your bunch
than you would get out of an old
ladles' home! *
It's a hell of a job you've got—
my heart grieves for you.
Yours very truly,
*  •  •   •
. Dearest Morons,—
NEWS ! i ! And good news at
that! Your Varsity "Cheer Leaders" are quitting—but very definitely. To put it very mildly,
we're disgusted. Sure, we know
that you're disgusted too—but
guys and gals, if you do a little
thinking (Try hard) you'll realize that the fault lies with you, 111
Sure, we know that we are inclined to be 'odious' when it
comes to getting out and leading
cheers. But we just sny 'why
not?' After all you have to admit
and that's one hell of n lot more
that most of you have done.

just cross off the year as a waste
of time. We started off with the
hope that possibly a few of you
dopes might realize that cheer-
leading isn't fun, and would
'sacrifice' yourself enough to give
us some incentive to carry on.

Student Prisoners
Helped By ISS
• AS THE UNIVERSITY OF B.C. launches into International Student Service Week, the UBYSSEY presents
a questionnaire to enlighten students on the work of the
ISS. In an imaginative interview with a UBYSSEY reporter,
BULLETIN tells what has been, is, and will be done with
funds that are now being collected in part on the campus.:
New Council •..
International    Student    Service
distributes its relief through the
European Student Relief Fund
whose headquarters is in Geneva,
Switzerland. Andre de Blonay, a
Swiss, is its General Secretary.
Members of the International
YMCA, the International Red
Cross, Pax Romana and the World
Student Christian Federation are
on Its executive committee.
Access to the prison camps all
over the world la made possible
through the 1929 Geneva Convention for prisoners of war which
makes provision for the International YMCA and the International
Red Cross to assist in supplying
the necessary physical equipment
for organizing and maintaining a
complete welfare program. The
European Student Relief fund Is
allowed into the camps for specialized educational work under the
International YMCA.
In China the relief ia distributed
through the National Student Relief committee of China.
Thousands of books have been
sent to men in prison camps in
Germany, Italy, Switzerland,
France, England, Canada, Australia, the Far East and the United
States . . . Periodic visits are made
to various prison camps in many
of these countries to discuss and
encourage the educational leaders
in their efforts to maintain the
camp schools.
Through the co-operation of the
YMCA and the Red Cross arrangements have been made for English
and Canadian prisoners of war In
Germany to take Oxford, Cambridge and University of London
The European Student Relief
Fund is acting as the agent for
much of this work. The only Polish
universities in existence today are
those sponsored by the E.S.R.F. in
Food parcels have been sent to
starving students in Belgium,
Greece, and China.
Laboratory equipment has been
sent to re-equip the laboratories
destroyed In the bombing of the
University of Kharkoy in Russia
In Canada 90 interned refugees
completed their McGill Junior and
Senior Matriculation examinations
during the summers of 1941 and
1942 with the assistance of the
European Student Relief Fund.
The schools in many of the other
internment camps are being supported by way of books and other
supplies by the fund. In China
relief work among students has
been carried on since the beginning of the Sino-Japanese war.
Students have trekked thousands
of miles literally carrying their,
universities on their backs to the
hinterland where they have set
them up again in whatever facilities were available, often In caves
and mud huts.
For CHINA help to maintain the
flow of trained students so needed
to develop China's resources . . .
For EUROPE help strengthen the
morale of students who will be the
hope for peace In Europe . . . For
RUSSIA help provide needed medicine for evacuated students .. . For
CANADA help prepare our fellow-
students imprisoned in Europe and
Asia for their post-war world , . .
For ALL HUMANITY build a
bridge of hope and trust toward
the future and keep alive the fellowship upon which peace and
goodwill are based.

Intra-Mural Softball
Tournament This Week
•   AT FRIDAY'S meeting of th*
, Intra-Mural Council, th* forthcoming Softball league, track meet,
and golf tourney were discussed.
It was decided, first, that soft-
ball would have to be reduced to
a straight knock-out tournament
because of th* short amount of
time left in the season. Th* draw
for th* first round, which must b*
played, off by Saturday, March 13,
Is now posted on th* Intra-Mural
Notice Board in th* gymnasium.
There ar* no restrictions as to
where th* first-round gam** may
b* playtd, but they must b* play-
•d sonwttm* this w**k, and, as Mr.
Van Vliet emphasised, it is up to
th* captains to see that they ar*
play*d by Saturday.
As a result of the chang* of
plans from a league to a tournament, th* 300 point* originally a-
warded to baseball may be cut
down to ISO.
Dates for th* second of th* topics
under discussion, track, w*r* decided two days, starting Tuesday,
run two days, starting Tuesday,
March 33, and continuing, after a
short pause for relaxation, the following Thursday.
Tuesday's program consists of:
SO yard dash, half-mile, broad
Jump, and discus.
The meet will wind up Thursday
with the following events being
reeled off 100-yard dash, one-mil*
high Jump, Shot put, and relay.
Th* relay will be 440 yards and
th* team* entered will consist of
four men, of which **ch member

a name for himself is Bob Crosby.
Crosby, In case you didn't know,
is a skier, and hi* feat was placing

last Sunday, March 8. Th* course

• Co-ed Sports
O VARSITY'S co-ed basketball
team take to the floor in tho
first game ot the City finals next
Wedrilsday night, when they meet
the winners of the Boeings-Pro-
Rec series. Boeings and Pro-Rec
have each won one game in the
best out of three semi-finals. The
team to meet Varsity will not be
determined until tonight at John
Oliver Gym.
Varsity's starting line-up will
probably be Norma Ford and Eileen McKillop, forwards; Paulino
Greer, centre; Helen Matheson
and Jackie Vance, guards. Pauline, Incidentally .has the most deceptive pivot shot in the league,
and is one of the leading scorers.
Noma's specialty Is a one-handed
long shot which almost Invarlaly
finds the hoop. Jackie and Eileen
are both left-handers who cause no
end of trouble to their checks.
Helen Matheson, last, but not
least, is another long shot artist,
but she also scores her share from
closer in.
• "THOSE gals just can't be stopped," was the cry of Britannia
Grade last Saturday, as Varsity
ran right through them, scoring
five goals to Britannia's nil. The
co-eds played one of thc best
games seen so far this year. Probably, there will be an even better
one when Varsity and Ex-Kits
Barbara Green* was th* big gun
of th* Varsity attack, scoring two
goals and assisting in othara. Jean
Handling, Dor**n Parks, and
Marg. Rodger each tallied one*.
Varsity forwards worked well together this week after the pooi
showing they made last time out.
Paslng was particularly good.
Barbara Greene has been giving
th* leading scorers a run for their
money, and may possibly end up
out on top o fthe scoring heap.
Next week Varsity will probably
take on Ex-Kits in which the fee-
gue lead will be determined. The
Kitsilano gals won the pre-Chrlst-
mas title and are out to sweep the
post-Christmas play  also.
• Basket Banter
HARRY ITRANKUN was th* star
of Saturday's gam* for UBC. Set ■
led the club with 10 points, all of
which he mad* in th* first half .»,-
The game was a far cry from last-
Wednesday's from th* pergonal
foul situation. In that gam* .44
fouls were called whll* In Saturday's contest, th* whistl* tooted
only 36 time*. However, it was
VARSITY, chiefly, that caused this
dlff*r*nc*. LAURIES war* almost
up to their Wednesday' standard
with 17 calls mad* against them.
Th* four-foul club for (AUBIES
consisted of JIMMY BfSNCB,
turn*d in another *fficl*nt piiwe
of work In his assigned task of
holding him to 7 POINTS. Big
"ST, however, caused his team
plenty of worry when he garnered
his third personal early in th*
third quarter, but h* h*ld his
criminal tendencies In check and
finished th* gam* still with thr**
fouls. ART JOHNSON waa In the
sam* situation as SYKES but th*
"BQtD DOG", too, managed to play
out the balance of the gam* without further chang* in his personal
situation . . . OLLIE BAKKEN, to
th* dressing-room, stated proudly
that he never mlstad a shot during
th* whole gam*. True enough, as
he spent the evening warming th*
bench . . . COACH M. L. VAN
VLIET stated than one reason for
LAURIES coming so close in tiie
final quarter was due to GORDIE
SYKES change of position from the
key to centre floor where he could
help the team to stall for time.
MR. VAN VUET praised the effect
that "SI'S" presence had on the
VARSITY bail-handling but said
he (SYKES) should have remained
in the bucket where he would have
constituted a scoring threat . . .
HARRY KERMODE, former VARSITY centre earlier in the season
and now playing for RCAF, led
his team to a near upset over
SHORES in th* first gam* Saturday nlgth when h* hung up 14
POINTS, his best performance..of
the season . . . VARSITY out-shot
LAURIES In the attempted field-
goal department for the first half
41 to 34, but th* PIEMEN tried
twice the shots that VARSITY did
In the last half, to out-shoot them
for the evening 78 to 63 . . . Free
throw performance is ONE thing
that VARSITY will have to improve if they hope to be at their
best in the coming series with.
SHORES. Saturday, they sank only
9 of the 30 shots awarded them.
Birds Win
Time 32-26
first-half drive Saturday
which spurred them to a 88-86
triumph over Lauries, Varsity**
Thunderbirds are now in the finals
of the V. and D. League playoffs.
Their opponents In the last round
will be Shores' jewellers, and th*
first gam* is scheduled for next
Saturday at the V. A. C. gym.
For both Vanity and Lauries,
there was only one half of Saturday's gam* that meant anything.
For Varsity, it was th* first, In
which th* Thunderbirds scored 34
of their ultimate S3 points, but for
Lauries, it would'be the last half
""as th* pi*-m*n kept up their first-
half pact of 13 point* to almost
snatch victory from th* fast-fading 'Bird*.
However, th* last half, er rather
th* last quarter, wasn't exactly
ffuitUss. Th* third quarter could
be discounted sine* both teams sot
>a near-record for low-scoring with
a total of four points boo twxn
them, but, In the final session, with
three minutes left and the pi*-
m*n coming steadily closer, the
Varsity boys attempted to stall
and for th* first tlm* this season,
th*ir attempt succeeded.
For two minutes, "Lefty" Barton,
Sandy Robertson, Art Johnson,
Harry Franklin, Gordl* Sykes exhibited better baU-handllng than
the team, as a whole, has shown
In a good many of their previous
games this year.
Th* above five, b yth* way, played the whole gam*, th* first tlm*
this season that any starting quintet has play*d right through a eon-
teat without a alngi* substitution.
Th* 'Birds ran in s*v*n points
in th* first quarter without a reply
from th* pi*-m*n to start things
off. Th* seer* at th* *nd of th*
first ten minutes stood: UBC, 13;
Lauries, 6.
Our boys Increased their lead in
th* next session to toad 84-13 at
th* breather. Th* low-soaring
third quarter saw Vanity sink
three foul shots to Laurie* on*,
whll* In th* last canto, Laurie*
ran in 13 points to the collegians
five, to make things close.

• THE MAN whose brief biography you will scan this
week, dear reader, follows Lynn Sully, both in these "Personality Parade" columns and also, in Lynn's office of MAA.
We refer to Harry Fran(kllfr
Since coming to tl$C last year, Harry has takeh a
prominent part in tiie extracurricular life of this institution.
He first made his name-familiar to Varsity students as star
guard of the "Winless WttWders" edition; of last year's Thunderbird Basketball team. We remember at that time, reading
in the papers before the season started UBC's line-up and
none of the speculations JtsTt° who was to start for Varsity
and who would be the key-men on the team, gave much space
or mention to a relatively .unknown Freshman on the team,
one Harry Frankin—formerly of San Diego State College.
Well, our boy Harr$ surprised them all. He soon
earned a berth in Varjtl^s starting line-up and proved to
be one of the brighter spots in the Thunderbird attack
throughout the season,,*flsftshing the year in tenth place a-
mong the intercity sharpshooters with a total of 90 points.
This made him second^ high scorer on the Varsity club.
(Lefty Barton was first.)
One popular miseqneeption about Harry, which many
students including us thought, was that Harry was an American. As a matter of fact, Franklin was born right here in
Vancouver, and although he moved from this fair city at the
age of ten, it was to take up residence in a remote corner of
this country, namely, Toronto "the good".
The States finally claimed our wandering boy after
rsonality Para
three years of exile in Ontario, when the Franklin clan moved to San Diego. There, the Franklin first-born remained
for six years, while attending a final year of primary school,
then going through San Diego High School and one year of
San Diego State College.
In high school, he played second string for the baseball
and basketball teams. While engaging in these latter pursuits, he became acquainted with one Chet Kehn. Alright,
you low-brows so you don't know who Chet Kehn is. Well,
two years ago, he was Ihe star pitcher for Montreal Royals
of the International League and last season was brought up
for a short trial with Brooklyn Dodgers of the National
His activity was not restricted to sports while in high
School. At the age of 15, he won an International Oratorical
Contest put on by Optimist International in Los Angeles. He
was active in dramatics, also, while in San Diego High, having the lead in one play.
Harry's former feat of winning the oratorical contest
will come as no surprise to his acquaintances in basketball
circles. For two seasons now, he has been wearing the nerves
of opposing checks and local referees to a frazzle with his,
to put it mildly, caustic comment, As an example of this we
remember a recent game played' out at the Varsity gym.
Gummy Leach and Ted Milton were whistle-tooting that game
and at half-time the two of them were seated down in the
dressing-room talking to another referee, Joe Hall, who was
taking a busman's holiday by coming out to watch the game.
At the end of the half-tira* break, just before Leach and
Milton were going up to ref the second half, Joe Hall turned
to Milton and said, "Well, Ted, I'm sure the game can be
controlled well in this second half by the three of you, yourself, Gummy, and Franklin."
Well, to get back to our hero's adventures in the U.S.,
or the Rover Boy in America, Harry spent one year in San
Diego State College, before coming north to return to Canada.
At San Diego State, he continued his basketball and baseball
activities, playing on the first-string Frosh teams. He averaged 11 points per game, playing on the basketball squad,
and was with them the year (1940) they won the National
Inter-Collegiate Little All-American Championship played
at Kansas City (whew).
Well, to make a long story short (heh, heh), Harry
finally came back to his hometown, where, as we said earlier,
he played on last year's UBC Senior basketball team. His
activities this year are%oMmg down a starting guard position with our Thunderblrc? Basketball team, of which he is
floor captain; member of the MAD; and now, newly-elected
