Quick Pace
By D. R. B.
"Pirates of Penzance," which
ranks with "Pinafore" as the
most popular operetta by that
popular pair, Gilbert and Sullivan, was brilliantly presented
by the Musical Society on
Wednesday evening. The audience, of nearly a thousand students, loudly praised the efforts of the young artists who,
for the most part, deserved it
In fact, old-timers say that this
year's offering is the best that the
Musical Society has clone for at toast
five years. An excellent orchestra,
good lighting, and pleasing sets helped
to make the show the success it is.
For the most part, tha men were
not well made-up. The most glaring
example of this fault was the Pirate
King, Ian Douglas, who had the
Groucho Marx face with Eddie Cantor eyis. One would, not bayt beejv
surprised if he had at any moment
pulled out a cigar, gone into a
crouch, and queried, "How'm I
On the other hand, the members
of the ladies chorus and the leminine
principals were properly grease-
painted. In the chorus Marjorie Find-
lay made a particularly pretty picture and looked as if she haa suddenly come to life from Grandma's old
Family Album, with her bonnet, her
frills, and her rosy cheeks.
Leading Lady
Alice Rowe, whose fine soprano voice
was heard to great advantage In the
lilting melodies of "Pirates of Penzance," In which she takes the romantic lead.
Popular Visitors
Include Court,
Won, Emerson
Of the leading characters, Alice
Rowe as Mabel gave the best performance. She coupled a well-trained
voice with considered (but not appearing so) acting. She was possibly
equalled, but not excelled by Lillian
Walker as Ruth, the Pirate maia, who
looked convincingly ugly—the work
of the make-up man—and who interpreted her part well.
Douglas Ford, as Frederick, the
hero, started off his performance in
a wooden manner. Although his voice
was at no time anything but pleasing,
his acting suffered a great deal from
either nervousness or unconscious
stiffness. This manner, however,
passed away during the second act,
and his trio with Ruth and the Pirate
King was delightful.
A. K. Macleod as the comical Major-General Stanley caught the audience at once. Without overacting,
and he had no lack of opportunities,
he delivered his famous dissertation
on the qualities of modern major-
generals. His costume and make-up
helped considerably to make him the
most outstanding of all the men in
the cast.
Mournfully perfect in the role of
the sad Sergeant of Police was Gordon Stead. In the costume of the
Victoria, B.C. Police Departmnt he
led his 'boys' through their paces in
a manner that had the crowd almost
on their feet in approval,
Overacting spoiled some o[ the effect that Morley Neal as '.he Pirate
Lieutenant might have made. Scene-
stealing is sometimes permissible, but
he made the mistake of distracting the
audience from the important action.
That is never permissible.
The orchestra handled the music
acceptably. As it should, it never
stressed the accompaniment to the
extent of 'drawing attention—but the
singers were able to feel that they
had capable support in all their work.
The short "Hail Poetry ' chorus in
the finale of the first act was the
musical treat of the evening. It is

Another "super-colossal" pep meeting got under way with a bang on
Tuesday when Jack Emerson. Master
of Ceremonies, introduced a number
of artists who were received with
rare enthusiasm by their critical audience — especially Vic Won, smiling
Chinese entertainer from the Mandarin Gardens, who brought down
the house with his rendering of
"Alone," and Emerton Court, actor
Mr. Court gave a most unusual performance. With a few easy strokes
of the "chalk and clay" sticks, anathema to the average amateur actor,
and the addition or removal ot a wig
of scant white locks, he became Age,
Youth, "Coon"—anything he wished.
All it needed was the striking of an
attitude and the impersonation was
complete. The audience seemed to
find him equally effective in his
heart-moving imitations of Old Black
Joe and a blind Irishman f.s in the
more comic characters of Charlie
Chaplin, Adolf Hitler, a Pender St.
Oriental and Groucho Marx.
Isabel and Kenny Haight, tap and
acrobatic dancers, have appeared before the student audience before, but
in their case familiarity does not
seem to breed contempt. When they
appeared in two of their soft-shoe
tap dances, Senkler of Discipline-
Committee fame was observed to sit
up and take notice
Jackie Williamson and his orchestra
provided incidental music—and not so
incidental at that, especially in Duke
Ellington's 'Solitude," when the air
was taken up by trombone, trumpet
and clarinet in rapid succession. Wilf
Wylie proved his right to a place
among the moderns in his catchy,
quick-moving solos of "Body and
Soul" and "Some day Sweetheart."
Jack Emerson kept the breaks between acts filled up with a series of
jokes and snappy comebacks, the excuse for the latter being given by a
heckler (or possibly a stooge) in the
audience. Said heckler was r o match
for Mr. Emerson's wit, and had to
content himself with enthusiastic
tooting of the machine known as a
"rassberry." Emerson did not seem
to find this annoying: it certainly
gave him all the opportunity he needed for humour.
Wholesale Field
Analysed For
"Wholesaling is a branch of commerce that is more fascinating than
any other," With these words Mr.
John Dunsmuir, of the firm of Mackenzie, White and Dunsmuir, opened
his talk on the wholesaling trade at
the last Vocational Guidance lecture
of the term.
He said that to be successful in
business, one must spend all his time,
except when he is asleep or eating,
at that business. To be most successful, he said, it is better to start
at the bottom and work to the top
through the various departments. The
going is rougher, but the experience
more than pays for the effort. He
also said that to be really successful,
one should make people feel that one
is enthusiastic and happy in his work.
There are three reasons tor the
wholesaler, he said. First, the wholesaler can give credit for a much
longer period than the manufacturer.
The manufacturer gives about ten
days to settle the bills, while the
wholesaler will give an indefinite
number of days to the retailer to settle. Second, the wholesaler can and
will supply small amounts of goods
at frequent periods, where the manufacturer can only afford to ship in
large consignments. This necessitates
the wholesaler, »or he can take the
large shipments from the manufacturer and store it in his warehouse,
from which he can distribute it to
the retailers in his district. For this
reason the retailer prefers to buy
from the wholesaler.
He then went on to describe the
different departments of a typical
wholesaling house, and their respective duties, He said that there were
four departments in any wholesaling
First there is the purchasing department. The personnel of this department consists of a purchasing agent,
his secretaries, and a staff of buyers.
The size of the staff depends entirely
on the size of the business. The
duties of this department are simple
in that it is its duty to do all the
buying for the business. But to do
this, the purchasing agent has to know
the buying power of the district in
which the wholesaler is operating.
The second department is the sell-

Library Has Exhibit
Of Varied Attraction
Rare old manuscripts, commercial
advertising, objects d'art, geological
maps, and a fascinating collector's library of rare books on a great variety of subjects comprise the exhibit
on view at present in the Faculty
Room of the Library. The exhibit,
loaned by the British Government by
arrangement with the British Trade
Commissioner, consists principally of
posters, books, and maps, all issued
by various departments of the Biitish
gavernment and related to the resources of the Empire, its industry
and trade.
Many of the books are of the
greatest historical interest. Part of
the Doomsday Book, made by order
of William the Conquerer to enumerate and evaluate all the holders of
land throughout England — the first
British census—is on view in reproduction. There are samples of the
beautifully executed maps of the Ordnance Survey, some of them on a
scale of six inches to the mile. There
is a facsimile of two pages of the Codex Sinaticus, the earliest known copy
of parts of the Bible, for which the
Government and people of England
recently paid one million dollars,
making it by far the most costly book
in the world.
The exhibition includes many interesting photographs of the art treasures of the British Nation, icores of
brochures published by ths British
Government on historical buildings
and localities, and a number of superbly printed books, such a-; the facsimile of the Egyptian Book of the
Dead, and of missals and other illuminated texts, like the Gospel of
Some random features of the exhibit which are of interest include
the fine photographic reproductions
of old masters—one enlarged photograph of some detail in an Albrecht
Durer painting is particularly noteworthy. Holbein's fine portrait of
Christina of Denmark, a handsome
figure in dark fur and velvet, Is attractively reproduced. Some copies
of Persian and Indian prints and
beautiful examples of delicacy and
phantasy in imaginative art. The
early medieval scrolls and psalters
are remarkable for their elaborate
and colorful illumination, some of
them being crusted with gilt in gold
and silver. Modern posters illustrate
the attractive use of bold, fl-it colors,
and design in commercial advertising.
The exhibition is open to (he public between nine and five on week-

Thursday evening when the
ALL-Varsity Dance Swings into motion with Mart Kenney's
orchestra making the Crystal
Ballroom of the Hotel Vancouver fairly sparkle with the
usual inimitable symphony of
superb melody for which the
"Gentlemen" are famed.
Darrel Gomery, publicity iranager,
waxed enthusiastic over this latest
"Child of Fortune" and in a crescendo of adjectival phrases spread
before the eyes of this reporter the
panorama of arrangements. With a
full orchestra of the Western Gen-.
tlemen the "Big Time" will get under way at 9 p.m. and will keep on
going till 1 a.m. "It is to be on the
lines of a combined class party of all
classes and faculties, programs and
all the trimmings."
BUT ... the price. Because of the
generosity of Mr. Chester, manager
of the Hotel, the ballroom is being
donated for the evening, and of Anderson's Printing Co., who ,re doing
the programs free, the tickets are 75
cents per person. In the words of Jay
Gould, "for 'six bits' one may lolL
hop or otherwise in the luxurious
surroundings of Vancouver's first
ranking hotel, and at the same time
give their Alma Mater the benefit of
the golden egg."
Tickets are in the hands of the students council members and alt claaa
executives, and will also be available
at the door. Dress orders for the
evening are "informal but not too informal." Boys and girls, round up
all your friends, varsity or non-varsity, grad or undergrad, and get your
tickets. HURRY! This is bargain

Some time ago the Ubyssey published a letter from some Eastern society, which set forth
the organization of peace efforts working in
Canada today. Prominently figuring in these
societies were student peace organizations.
The campus here has been noticeably lacking in these manifestations of student sentiment. Although a worthy will sometimes write
a letter to the editor pointing out some hideous
war menace in our midst and an occasional
lecturer will give us a sober talk on the international outlook from a peace-lover's point
of view, the general campus outlook seems to
be comfortably vague on the subject.
It might be a good thing if some of our more
earnest souls livened things up a bit. Anti-war
demonstrations may be slightly naive, but the
idea behind them is wholesome enough.
We have a score of books on the subject,
purchased in the days of our violent pacifism,
and we have been waiting some three years for
some appropriate society to spring into being,
so that we might make a donation, and become
one of the patron saints. What are the chances?
What has become of Mr. John George Hill,
we do not seem to have noticed his name in
the news recently. He would have known how
to handle our dilemma!
We are happy to congratulate the Musical
Society on their product'on of "The Pirates
of Penzance" which is, on the whole, the best
production of the Society that We can recall.
Considering the vocal limitatipns that are
almost inevitable where undergraduates are
concerned, the soloists acquitted themselve8
satisfactorily, and the choral work was distinguished. The act'ng was better, on the whole,
than we anticipated, and the stage management seemed quite competent. Particularly
pleasing was the appreciation of comic values,
which can be wasted so mercilessly through
inept handling.
We heartily recommend the "Pirates" to
any student who has not yet seen it, and wishes
any light, musical enterta'nment.
The Newspaper Editor suffers many tribulations, He is expected to have the faculty of
exercising a calm, impartial judgment on all
matters, spiritual and temporal; he must drop
pears of wisdom and not revert to foolishness—
the province of the columnist-
He must be an Olympian being who views
with unperturbed solemnity the petty scrambling of his fellows. It is only when he is required to open his editorial lips and speak, and
at the same time is uttery sterile as regards
ideas, inspiration, or observations, that he is
bereft of his majesty and becomes a mere fretful human.

Daily papers are such valuable things. Now,
for instance, the Associated press sends out
an article today, information collected by Dr.
Arthur F. Payne, director of the personnel
bureau of the College of the City of New York,
and telling people how to go about getting a
job, but more especially how to go about not
getting a job.
That's a genuine service to humanity. He
says: "Don't take the first job offered to you."
Heh, heh. That's one thing I've never done.
I don't say I never will, always providing, of
course, that some day someone does offer me
"And don't say you will take any job at any
wage under any working conditions. You could
easily develop a neurosis in some jobs, where
others would be quite happy. My dear, imagine picking up neurosis while out job-hunting,
I always say you can't be too careful about the
people you go job-hunting with.
"Don't give your prospective employer the
hard job of finding out for himself just what
you are good for. Do you know your strengths,
weaknesses, capacities, abilitie8?"
This job of be'ng Ubyssey columnist is pleasant and keeps away the big bad neuroses, but
it threatens to peter out- This makes the fourth
year as columnist of some sort, and I don't
think I've got the nerve to go on into a fifth.

some jobs now. News of three local boys making good seeped through last week. There's the

Did you ever notice the little bag at the
neck of a lawyer's gown between the shoulders? There's a reason for it.
When the British courts began lawyers
were permitted to accept an honorar'um but
could charge no fee. The honorarium was carried in the little bag while the lawyer plead his
case. And if he flagged the client could always
drop in another coin, like dropping a nickle
in a slot machine.

ing department. The personnel of this
department is divided into two
groups, the inside sales department
and the outside department. The inside department is the call or counter
.service department. This division of
the sales organization is for serving
customers who come to the wholesaling house to buy their goods, The
outside department consists of the
field men. This is the last stepping
stone to an executive position in the
The third department is the warehousing department. This department
has to take care of the goods that
come in from the manufacturer, catalogue them, and store them in their
respective storage places. This department is subdivided into lour divisions. They are the order, checking,
packing and shipping departments.
Over each is a manager, and the
warehousing manager is boss of them
The fourth department is the office force. "The size and personnel
of this department depends entirely
on the size of the business," he said.
"There may be one or one hundred
persons employed in this department,
depending on the type and size ot the
business," he added. In a good sized
business, this department is subdivided into seven sub-departments, They
are the accounting, credit, costing,
traffic, advertising, stenographic, and
exchange departments.
In concluding his lecture, he gave
some good general advice on chosing
a profession. He said to choose a
profession, determine to succeed, and
put your heart and soul into it. He
said that, while an education is not
absolutely necessary, it always helps
to have one. In applying for a job,
he advised, be mannerly and determined, not diffident. He also advised
to be obliging and keep yourself tidy
and clean.

When the lights dim In the theatre
on an opening night, there is a silence that can be heard in every corner. The orchestra, playing the overture, seems to be keeping the audience in suspense for what is to come.
Every person squirms a little in their
seat, finds a comfortable angle, and
settles down to enjoy the first act-
for audiences always want to like a
performance, that is a thing misunderstood among young actors who
fear the coldness of what they believe is a critical crowd.
"Pirates of Penzance," like a lot of
Gilbert and Sullivan works, hangs on
a plot as thin as the Ice after the
first frost. When the finale js near-
ing, there are always a lot of things
to be cleared up. To the inexperienced, it looks as if the show would
run for another hour.
Then, of a sudden, everybody on
the stage begins explaining things, a
song or two is sung, and, to the surprise of all, the show is over. That is
the charm of Gilbert and Sullivan—
they never let a little thing like a
plot interfere with their delightful
Along with the "Mikado," "Pirates"
has been based on a lot of things
that couldn't possibly happen. That
was all right hi the days when these
were written-4oday the style is sophistication and complication, along
with menace and subtleness—but the
operettas by those two Englishmen
still remain universal favorites.
And so the Musical Society keeps
on producing Gilbert and Sullivan-
there is no reason to stop as long as
they don't repeat too often. The world
hears too little of delightful whimsy
and pleasant, airy music as it is.

The University Gates, although not
imposing, present an excellent target
for speeding motorists. Standing by
the gates in the early morning, I wait
for the bus and watch the cars come
out of the University area on their
way to the city. A rather large limousine tears along about five to eight

There was, evidently, a Carnival
last Saturday, Coming into the Pub
office Monday morning, you would
have thought that the thing was held
here. The floor was covered with a
liberal amount of assorted debris, including broken glass, cards, books,
and copy paper. And the tables —
they were gone.
Our three tables, and our typewriters—all gone.
Not only were they gone, but those
who took them refused to bring them
back. In order to bring out a Tuesday paper we had to lug the machines
back from the gym—and then use
them on the counter.
Upon Investigation is seems that the
Zetes, who ran a Housie-Housie outfit at the Carnival, needed the tables
—«nd took them. In the process of
removing our furniture th*y broke
one window and scattered n lot of
valuable papers in ten directions.
Three stories for the last issue of the
paper were lost—not that that was
a big loss but we wanted them.

"The Student" To
Reappear Soon
On March 10, "The Student", the
official publication of the Student
League of Canada, will re-appear on
the campuses and in the High Schools.
This magazine is the only one in
the country that concerns itself solely
with the general run of student problems and events which involve students.   It is a pioneer in the field.
Financial troubles, familiar to all
self-run publications has stilled its
controversial voice for some months,
but once more its articles will challenge student apathy. Discussed favorably and unfavorably from coast to
coast, "The Student" has to its credit
in past issues the fact that it has
brought vital problems to the attention of student bodies. The editorial
policy of the magazine makes an attempt to instil a measure of social
consciousness in students and to explain the basic relationship of the
school to the outside world.
Three featured articles will tell of
the current situations at the Universities of McGill, Toronto and British
Columbia. Another article will recount the organization, growth and
attitude of the "Student Peace Movement." Plans for sending Canadian
delegates to a World Youth Congress
at Geneva, in August, will be discussed. This congress is endorsed by
Romain Rolland, Lord Cecil, Andre
Malraux, Lord Marley and sponsored
by a wide variety of* world youth organizations under the slogan of
"Peace, Freedom and Progress." Another feature article will deal with
the much neglected problem of student self-government and the typical
set-up and present failure as they are
now constituted. Other articles and
features will be announced prior to
A new business management and
preparation for increased circulation
make certain that this issue will be
discussed and debated by many hundreds who have never read "The Student" in the past.
Any Inquiries and further particulars will be given by corresponding
with the Student League of Canada,

During the years the lads have amassed a considerable collection of trophies, very comparable to that in the

in this connection seems Justifiable.

regrettable that this number is not

between   Douglas   Ford   and   Alice
Rowe proved the high spot.
All the male choruses were pleasing, but then they have been written
with a swing that makes it impossible
for one to dislike them if they are rendered with any degree of efficiency.
Mentioned before, but worthy of
double notice was the "Paradox" trio
in the second act. Encored once, It
could have stood a third rendition.
"Pirates of Penzance" was brilliant,
accurate, and showed signs of careful

Players To Emulate
18th Century Types
To recapture the easy affluence and
ordered elegance of the eighteenth
Century gentry, and to dissociate
oneself from the tense, crackling pace
of life today, is something of an assignment. Players' Club members
cast in "She Stoops to Conquer", Oliver Goldsmith's fine Restoration
comedy, are working to attain tne atmosphere necessary for the staging
of their Spring production.
Costumes, settings, and properties
will all develop the tone required for
the play. Massive Elizabethan and
elegantly proportioned Classical furniture will be combined in .he clark-
wood-and-old-pewter set of Mr. Hard-
castle's country mansion, where a
great part of the action takes place.
Costumes will show the sense of style
and elegance that characterized the
period. Ornate and lovely gowns will
grace the ladies of the play; the men
will doubtless cut dashing figures in
their tailored coats, tight breeches,
ruffled shirts, wigs and riding boots.
Traditional English types will be
interpreted by the U.B.C. ixtors in
their comedy presentation. The genteel, poised, and precious aristocracy
of the period are represented by the
roles of Marlowe and Hastings, taken
by Hugh Palmer and Davie Fulton,
and to a lesser extent by Diana Drabble and Audrey Philips, who embody
in addition the natural charm inevitably manifested in dramatic heroines. Tonly Lumpkins. whose tastes
run to femininity of the meatier
build, nut-brown ale, and horses, is
a fine character in the Old English
tradition, and shows every sign of
being done full justice to by Fred
Hobson,  who is taking the part.
The old country squire — settled,
easy-going, genial, and hopelessly
opinionated, will be handled by Ludlow Beamish; and his fatuous and
gushing wife receives fine comedy
treatment in the hands of Adelia
Devon yokels and hill-billies, whose
stolid, slow-witted quaintness adds so
much color to the play, are Graham
Darling, Jim Beveridge, Eunice Alexander, Sam Roddan, George Johnson, and Monty Fotheringham.
The production is scheduled to play
March 13. 14, and 15. Student night
will be on Wednesday, March 12.

given a little more consideration.

In a return meet at Seattle three

three speakers from a similar organization on the University of Washington campus on the topic of the Second Generation Marriage Problem.
The forensic encounter is to take the

so called by its formulator, Prof.
Frederick Orr of the University of
Problem Solving differs from the
established form of debate in eliminating the "affirmative" and "negative" aspect from the argument and
concentrating, instead, on a solution
of the problem at issue. "This type
of debating tends to break down undesirable prejudices, and develops in
their place tolerance and broadmind-
edness,"  contends its originator.

framed as follows, "How can the Second Generation Marriage problem be

Women Will Win
Athletic Awards
For Gym Classes
Banquet For Presentation
At a meeting of the Women's Big
Block Club on Thursday it was decided that small block letters be
awarded to girls attending gym classes, the award to be based on a test
of the work given in the cla.'sses with
a general attendance and improvement requirement. There will also
be round letter awards made to those
who merit recognition but do not
reach the standard for the small
block letter. Small black letter awards
will also be given to winners of a
beginners' badminton tournament and
an archery "shoot."
The possibility of a Women's Athletic Association which will be closed
and limited to those winning awards
was discussed. This would be an organization similar to the Big Block
Club but would include all those active in women's sports.
New awards are being discussed
which may take the form of a crest.
It is expected that new sports will be
added to those already existing. Consequently there will be a wider appeal for a \arger number of women.
A committee was appointed to approach a women's Athletic executive
to discuss plans for a women's athletic banquet at which this year's
awards will be presented. It is hoped
that he banquet may be held down
town and that an outstanding person
in women's sports will be the guest

races were held in blizzards although
it was hard to race. The cross-country was called off because of the
weather. On returning home the

Sc. '39 Beats Sc. '37
All strips must be turned in immediately.
There will b\3 an important meeting
ot the club on Wednesday, March 4,
at 12:10 in Arts 106, This will be the
final meeting of the year, so full
turn-out  is necessary.
The intra-mural basketball
schedule has made a promising
start. The first game played on
Wednesday at 12:15 in the gym
proved to be exceedingly fast
and 'nteresting. The farmers
succeeded in defeating the educationalists by a score of 19 to
13. The two high scorers in
this game were Prior who scored 7 points and Stokvis who
scored 9 points. This game places the Aggies at the first of the
Blue League, having won each
of the three games they have
played so far.
The game which was played at 12:45
gave the Science '39 class team a
chance to show their superiority over
the Science '37 squad, Scienceman
Straight showed his skill as a bas-
keteer by scoring a total of ti points,
while Wolfe followed closely by scoring 5 points.
The scheduled game between Arts
'39 and Science '39 will not take place
on Friday at 12:45 but will be played
as a preliminary to the Varsity game
tonight at 7:30. The other game
which was scheduled for today at
12:15 between Arts '36 and Science
'36 will be played in the gymn at
the appointed time.
The intra-mural program for next
week is as follows:
Wednesday, March 4—
12:15—Science   '36   vs.   Arts    '37    and
12:45—Science  '39  vs.   Arte   '38.
