Review Wednesday
• NEXT WEDNESDAY, March 31, the COTC will hold
its first ceremonial parade since the opening of the new
armouries last year. This will also mark the first appearance
of the corps as an entire unit before the public this year.
Last fall, part of the corps parti-        ■ ■ i

New Shand
Art Exhibit
In Brock
* UBC students have had
an opportunity during
• the past week of viewing a
collection of paintings by
Ruby Brown Shand, prominent Canadian artist. The
paintings, done in both water-colours and oils, are now
on exhibit in the double committee room of Brock Hall.
Before coming to Vancouver,
Mrs. Shand resided in Calgary,
where aha exhibited much of her
work, and where she studied Art
under A. C. Lelghton, R.B.A., and
H. 0. Clyde, A.B.C.A. During
this period of study, Mrs. Shand
won two Art scholarships.
While In this city Mr*. Shand
has hsd several collections of her
paintings on exhibit In the Art
Gallery. She also found time
while not painting to send some
of her paintings to Toronto Art
exhibitions, and to teach Art to
budding students here in Vancouver. It Is this latter work in which
she ie now engaged, and any students who are interested in these
classes should contact her now.
Every summer, Mrs. Shand
operatea a summer camp to which
she brings Art students from Vancouver. In the last four years
this camp haa been located first
at Banff for two years, in the Alberta foothills for ono summer,
and last year along the P.OJC.
route. This year, however, she
has not yet decided on the location of her camp.
One of her proteges, Monica
Sloan, has already won a scholarship to the Banff School of Fine
The exhibit in the Brock, with
the exception of a few paintings
done in the Alberta foothills, is
strictly a collection of British Columbia scenic paintings.
Mrs. Strand wishes to mention
especially, some of the scenes
which she believes the students
will find interesting.
The foremost of these la the
painting known as "The Unfinished Task." It is, actually, a
half-filled hay cart on Lulu Island, but it represents strikingly
the way in which the war has
caused to leave so many tasks unfinished.
Another interesting work ls
"Snow Scene." It was done on
little Mountain during the recent
There are two paintln.4 of Burrard Bridge, one done In water-
colors and one in oils. It Is interesting to note the rectangular
spaces in the pillars supporting the

There are also numerous scene3

Work For Co-eds At NSS
Men Register At Bureau
• AS A RESULT of a conference with Miss Morley, and
Miss Fountain of the Women's Division, National Selective Service, the Employment Bureau is able to shed some
light on the summer work problem. The University Employment Bureau will NOT be handling the work; University
women are requested to register at 734 West Hastings Street.
Procedure for those women de- '
siring technical jobs may be different, but they are also urged to
register at the soonest possible
moment. The University Bureau
is still handling part-time jobs.
There is still a need for part-
time workers for several Vancouver industries. This need Is particularly urgent due to the increasing labor shortage in Vancouver,
for manual labor during any part
of the day or night, should get
In touch with the employment
bureau immediately.
The employment bureau will bo
open from 11:45 to 2:30 Monday
to Friday, and from 10:30 to 11:30
Saturday (until April 10) to distribute tentative work permits.
Students are reminded that these
work permits must be returned,
signed, to the University Employment Bureau by April 3.

"Meanest Man"
Takes Airman's
Cap As Souvenir
• SOME UBC undergrad-
uate qualified, hands
down, for the title of "the
meanest man" of these parts '
last week-end, when he
walked off with the cap of
one of the air-crew members
stationed in the Science
The cap was taken when the airman left it, with other articles of
clothing,  outside  a  lecture-hall.
"It's really not funny" said tho
officer commanding, who informed
the UBYSSEY of the loss.
"Under regulations, the boy
concerned will have to buy another cap himself. They cost
e$l. 10—almost a full-day's pay. He
can't afford to supply trophies for
souvenir hunters on that."
The prankster is urged to return
the cap, and all will be forgiven.

Swan Song
Thirty-nine issues have gone through
the presses since I had the thrill of sitting
in my own private office to write the first
editorial for Volume 25. At that time I
didn't think that I would ever write a farewell, but now—well why should I be the
first to break a tradition?
It seems a long way back to that bright
September day three years ago when we
first set foot on the campus and quaveringly
asked a superior-looking person where the
administrative building was. He broke down
and admitted that he was fresh too, and was
also looking for the building, but was afraid
to ask anyone because they would spot him
for a freshman. That fall we remember going to Victoria for a "little invasion" and
finding to our dismay that the sleepy city
across the strait was pub-less. There was
the heart-breaking Home-Coming game that
Vancouver Bulldogs won by a last-minute
length of the field touchdown run.
In a professorial vein there is much to
remember. The French prof, who flew into
rages and stomped out of the room. One day
he caught his gown in the door and ruined
his dramatic exit by tearing his robe. The
colony of "Crumbites" who swear by popular professor Dr. J. A* Crumb. If we ever
write editorials on economic subjects in the
future we will have to give him a credit
line. The frosh Math professor, who took
a fatherly attitude to all his students—He
taught Professor Gage once, and was proud
of his star pupil. Professor "Freddy" Wood
and his humorous insulting of the class—and
the UBYSSEY. The one and only Sedgewick
—he really knows how to stage a lecture-
no student in his classes ls likely to forget
him. Dr. Irving's ability to get a class to
express their own opinion without using his
as their criterion. I still recall the merry
attempts of Phil 1 students to pin him down
on religion—and they never did.
Comes some future Home-Coming with
its reminiscing and there will be a lot of
people to remember. The Pub Gang, Archie,
Jake, Lionel, Pierre, Dinah, Lucy, Viv, Les,
John Tom, Peter and a host of others. My
old friends the councillors, especially "Honest Jawn", the Right Honorable Backman,
and Mary Mulvin. Art Hawkes, if we had
done nothing else in three years but to make
a real friend such as Art, it would still have
been worth it. MacMillan, for five years we
have been getting in and out of jams together, mostly his fault, mother. 'Enry Marshall,
who acted as my personal banker for two
There will be memories of those Publications parties, press nights and deadlines.
The snow-bound night, last January, when
we put out the paper knowing that there
would be no one at Varsity to receive it,
then we distributed it at the Red Cross
Ball. The news must go through!
There was the two weeks of "Happy
Days" at Vernon last spring, when I got to
know more people than I had met in two
years on the campus. The manly art of
"swinging the lead"—remarkable how easy
it is to learn the tricks of getting out of
fatigues. How grand a hot bath felt when
we returned to Vancouver.
It hag' been three years of fun and work.
I have learned a lot about people and things,
and it has been a profitable time. We will
always stand up for our UBC against any
one from any institution any where.
Fatuity F
Rationing Of Rumours
• RUMORS SHOULD be considered as
important indices of the state of the
"public mind" rather than idle fantasies.
They are dramatizations of attitudes, beliefs,
or values, or they are attempts to fill in the
gaps left by the sources of authentic information, regarding events in a crisis. These
rumors both express the, .state of the public
mind and they are one or the ways in which
\ it, la molded.
I In the first aspect they are an indication
of what the "man on the street" is thinking,
or of what he believes or wants to believe,
or of how he feels. In the second aspect
rumors may become powerful instruments
for various types of propaganda, "Planted"
rumors may take the place of facts or may
take advantage of existing animosities and
cleavages in the population to exaggerate
tensions and disrupt morale. The "planting"
may be carried out by foreign agencies (for
example, Axis short wave broadcasts) or by
domestic groups.
Wartime tumors in circulation in Canada fall into several well-defined patterns.
In this article I shall comment on rumors
which refer to the future intentions of the
Canadian Government with respect to rationing and conscription.
During the past eighteen months wartime regulations have steadily grown more
severe, and this increasing severity has been
marked by the extension of the regulations
to include the whole population. It is fair
to say that today there, is no one in Canada
who has not felt the Impact of the various
orders that have beef| proclaimed. In such
a period it is perfectly natural that people
will attempt to anticipate future regulations.
The recent issue of Ration Book II by the
Wartime Prices and Trade Board actually
extends an invitation to the Canadian people
• to "guess what's coming next." It contains
three sets of "spares". ,Many rumors are
naturally in circulation concerning the extension of rationing.    :Ti
. ■*" \^  Laj5^syM.me?tfj^ WTPB was so harass-
** edlby rationing rumo^that it issued a dras
tic statement to the effect thai^ "action will
be taken against persons spreading false
rumors of prospective rationingX At the
same time Mr. Donald Gordon sa)id, "We
can give positive assurance that no\aritical
shortage of any essential of life is in sight."
He also characterized the rumors regarding
rationing as "definitely subversive, 'often*
causing runs on existing supplies and needlessly complicating the difficult task of
,    equitable distribution."
Psychologically, it is easy to see why
rationing rumors have been so prevalent in
recent months. The Canadian people would
be even more unimaginative than is commonly supposed if they did not attempt to
complete the frame of references required
by the five "spares" in the old rationing
book and the three in the new. The policy
of the WTPB positively invites rumor-mon-
There can be no doubt that narrow selfishness has prompted some of these rationing rumors. Certain persons hope to obtain
an advantage from them, and other unthinking people spread the rumors without realizing the difficulties they are causing. During
the past year and a half crowds of people
have rushed! around eastern Canadian cities
trying to acquire hoards of sugar, soap, coffee, butter, canned fruits, clothes, and even
University students, and more particularly those in the Arts Faculty, have been
greatly disturbed during the' current academic year by an endless stream of rumors
concerning future governmental policy in
connection with National Selective Service.
Ah individual who spreads rumors In a
University community regarding all-out conscription of students ia always assured of
an adequate emotional setting before he begins. He claims to have at his disposal vital
information. He can answer the oft-raised
question, "What Is the Government going to
do about us?" He knows—and he will tell.
The favourable position in which he finds
himself naturally enhances his ego. He becomes a superior person in his social group
—he has obtained knowledge of the future
from a secret source.
In addition to ego enhancement, or increase of prestige, the rumor-mongerer in
student groups achieves a definite emotional
release. He, like his fellow students, has
certain wishes, fears, and anxieties regarding the future. His rumor is stated as ah
objective fact. He can delineate the future
of his fellow students with certainty. He experiences an emotional release from his own
Rumors, when officially denied, tend to
disappear in one form and reappear in another. This phenomenon indicates that the
rumor continues "alive" because it fulfills
some significant social function. Rumors do
not necessarily thrive in the absence of facts
concerning the future. But they do thrive in
those situations where individuals are unable to integrate into a clearly defined pattern the events that are occurring in the
world around them. The absence of such a
frame of reference may partially account for
the prevalence of conscription rumors a-
mong university students.

Editor, UBYSSEY:
Dear Sir:—
I have Just finished reading
Lucy Bcrton's "Reviewing the
Play," or, "How Every Little Student Should Behave" In last Friday's paper, and I'm mad enough
to chew the keys off her typewriter.
From here on, let me direct my
remarks directly to Emily Post
You tell 'em, Lucy Kid! You
know all about manners. You are
a pillar of wisdom, a suave sophisticated, much-travelled mature
art-lover; a real tribute to modern
education. Imagine! Such a lady
being bred among nasty, nasty
boys who whistle and crack Jokes
during a play!
Listen, Miss Berton, while I let
you In on a few of the facts of
life. Students' night is for tho
students alone, and they can' act
up If they like. If you, or any
other of the long-hair minority,
want to listen with art-appreciating faces and crltlc-wrinkled
brows, then go some other night.
What if the kids do fool around
a bit, If they have fun, let 'em
do lt. Heaven knows that this
year at Varsity Is no cinch. Beer
is scarce, studies are hard, and
COTC is a hell of a lot tougher
than Red Cross knitting. We need
a little relaxation now and then.
As far as I'm concerned, I enjoyed the Player's Club—and the
audience — immensely. I enjoyed
wise-cracking, whistling, and
stamping my feet, and I'll bet 90
per cent of the rest of the audience did, too.
The Player's were good spor+s
about the whole thing. They'd
rather play to an enthusiastic audience any day.
And one last thing, you old
fogey. You can call the audience
a bunch of "Infants" if you like,
but a pretty good sized bunch of
those same Infants will soon be
giving their lives so people like
you can continue to spill your blat
In a free press.
P.S.—I bet Lucy doesn't let this
go in the paper.
Ed. Noter-1 believe, in freedom
of the press.—L. F. B.

an enlisted U.S. Army Force man

purposes. Actually, this system
Is very practical, for it enables

Honorary Fratenity Inducts Campus Leaders Thurs.
Sigma Tau Chi Elects
Seven New Members
•   SIGMA TAU CHI, the campus honorary service fraternity, accepted seven new members last night at their last
banquet of the year. Election to this fraternity is the highest
honor that a student in campus executive work can receive.
■ Those accepted were Bob Whyte,
Don Ross, Stan Beaton, Bob Davidson, Dick Bibbs, Harry Franklin, and Doug Haggart.
The object of this fraternity is
to draw together prominent men
who have campus interests, for
the purpose of exchanging points
of view, and ironing out difficulties of the faculties. This year
they have made many valuable
contributions. They have made
a proposal for a new pass system,
and suggested a revision of the
constitution of the AMS. They
have done work on a new insurance scheme, and the handling of
military  matters.
New members are takpn in twice
yearly and must be approved by
the graduate members of the
previous year. Sigma Tau Chi h
not In any way affiliated with tho
fraternity system proper, .but is
purely an honorary position. Contact Is kept with all former members, who'still take an interest in
campus affairs. Members are recognised by the sword pin.
War Relatives Association
sent the following letter to the
Students' Council, asking them to
appeal to the students for sports
equipment for the men in German
and Italian prison camps. The A.
M.S. office will handle all contributions.
The above association Is anxious to secure jecond-hond sports
■flUipment in good condition for
German and Italian prlaon eampa.
Some prisoners have been confined
to a small apace for three years,
and some form of ttrclao la not
a luxury, but a necessity to general health.
As there ia a scarcity of new
equipment, we are hoping those
not using their tennis or badminton raquets or other games might
like to donate them to such a
worthy cause.
If your Council could makTan
appeal to the students for such
equipment, we will arrange for
lt to be collected from the University.
Hoping this wUl receive your
sympathetic consideration, I remain,
Youra faithfully,

there for the benefit of bridge
fans," according to dohn Carson,

players sitting around at all hours

Frank Underhill, manager of the

Thrupp Explains Co-ops
At Meeting Wednesday
• STUDENTS INTERESTED in finding an inexpensive,
friendly, and entertaining place to live next year, are
asked to come to the general meeting in Arts 100 at 12:30,
Wednesday, March 31, and find out about the Co-Ops. The
meeting will be short, designed principally to acquaint the
campus with this thriving organization. Dr. Thrupp wil be
main speaker. An informal discussion will follow her talk.
These   residences   are   open   to       _____________________________
both girls and boys. At the present time there are two boys'
houses and one girls' house, each
capable of boarding about twelve
students. However, there are good
possibilities  for  expansion.
After a very successful year, the
Co-Opes feel that "these houses
possess something that a boarding
house does not offer. The advantages are numerous and individual, but all students find tho
wholesome and home-like atmosphere beneficial to scholastic
standing as well as a varied and
lively social life.
Throughout the year successful
parties are planned and twice
monthly, two students from each
house are dinner guests at another house.
In spite of the increasing cost
of living, the monthly expenditure, by good management, has
been maintained at $25 per proesn.
Every student entering a Co-Op
house must be willing to spend
some time each day on the house
duties assigned .These jobs are
not heavy and should not exceed
half an hour dally.
The houses are self-disciplined
and self-governed. The housemother prepares an appetizing
evening meal, and takes an interest in each student.
The Co-Op idea applied to
campus residences " is rapidly
spreading among the universities
of America.
'To Beer Or Not To Beer'
Queried In Ubyssey Poll
• "TO BEER or not to Beer" was
the object of several important
discussions recently on the campus and in the downtown newspapers. Accordingly the UBYSSEY
conducted a poll of student opinion. The results are varied and
The majority of the students
thought that some regulations were
necessary to Insure a supply sufficient for every drinker. The horrors of prohibition are generally
considered more wide-spread than
the horrors of drink. The majority
also made the point that high-
proof spirits could be cut out for
the duration, but beer should remain available, especially for members of the armed forces and the
war workers.
Here are some of the ideas expressed by students:
Ansel Marik: "A reasonable a-
mount otf beer should be allowed
to war workers."
Eileen McRati "Should havt
enough for every body, rationed if
necessary, hut no prohibition."
Charlie Gitterman: "A certain
quota should be made available to
Varalty students immediately following the exams to relieve nervous frustration."
An anonymous student: "Habitual drinkers may be allowed liquor
as they will get it anyway, but existing regulations do well In preventing the casual drinkers from
becoming sots."
Eric Ajello: "There should be
more beer and bigger beer bottles,
but this idea of liquor rationing Is
no more than an attempted prohibition by a group of narrow-
minded 'old women' In the government."
LOST: Swedish engraved penknife with name Flader inscribed.

This was the first game of the
Imperial Cup knock-out series.

Leaf team this Saturday In th*
second game for the students.
That game will be played at
Memorial Park West, starting at
320 p.m. sharp.
Down on the Cambie Street
grounds last Saturday the UBC
team played heads-up ball all the
way. This is particularly true
about Les Moran. He directed
many shots at the framework that
were truly pieces of art. Tho
first goal for our side came by way
of starry Frank Adams. Playing his usual fast and skillful
game, Frank made no mistake
about placing his share of the
scoring in the right place at the
right time.
Jim Morton, playing half-back,
was a big help to tho Blue and
Gold cause. He was one of th->
hardest working men on the field.
A number of new players were in
strip for the game as e result of
injuries received by the regular
players during the week. One of
the regulars sitting on the side
lines was Ed Dzendolet, suffering
with a broken nose.. Stu Roach-
and "Wolf" Walker, fullbacks,
gave Herb Smith very little chance
to show his ability ot being tho
best goalie in the league.

Maury Van Vliet steppod in and
'by mutual agreement >t was decided to give each team the ball
for five downs, and the team mak.

The Kappa Sigs made approximately twenty-five yards mora
than the Lambdas, and were
awarded one point, making the

Bird Hoopers
To Meet Island?
• UBC's FIGHTING Thunderbirds climbed another rung
in their quest up the ladder to another Dominion championship. They gave one of the greatest exhibitions of powerhouse basketball in the last five minutes of their game against
Shores last Tuesday, to overwhelm the Jewellers, 52-43.
This was the fourth game of a best-of-five series, which Varsity took, three games to one.
Tonight, they face either RCAF
or Army from Victoria, in the first
game of the Provincial finals. The
second game will be played the
night following, namely Saturday.
The series will then switch to the
island the following week-end for
the next three games In the best-
of-seven series and the final two
games (if necessary) will take
place alternately in Vancouver and
However, whether there will be
a series at all and just who the
UBC opponents will be, if' there is
a series, ls still very much up in
the air. As long as B.C. basketball
"**>. 4sj__|!an remember, there has been
a sQuwtoUvoys*^anVthlng connected remotely with the Provincial
finals and nearly always, lt has
been tho Victoria team that raises
the fuss.
This year Is no exception. To
begin with, the Army and RCAF
cannot agree as to which of their
respective teams won the semifinal series played in Victoria. It
was a best-of-five series, but things
became ao mixed up that they
ended by playing six games.
Army won the first game but
their victory was thrown out, bo-
cause they used an ineligible play*
er. Then the Fliers proceeded to
take the next two games. This
technically put tho latter two
games up. Then the Army took
the next two, tie-lng the series.
Then the final game. Ah-h, tho
final game. The score waa RCAF
25, Army 23. But guess who won.
Naw, Army did. At any rate, that's
what the basketball dukes ruled.
It seems that the Air Force pulled
the trick Army tried in the
thrown-out first game. They used
an Ineligible man, namely, Ralph
Pay, who Is no stranger to Vancouver fans.
Well, anyhoo, Army will bring
their outfit to face our boys tonight. But, and we do mean BUT,
RCAF, who don't know when they
have lost are coming along too,
and they, not Just for the ride.
Charlie McLaehlan, their coach, Is
going to have It out with the B.C.
Basketball Association In an effort
to have his team acclaimed Island
As if all that wasn't enough, our
Thunderbirds are sticking their
little oar into the procedeings. It
teems that Senior Manager Shadwell went ahead and scheduled the
first game for the VAC gym. This
was not at all satisfactory with
Coach M. L. Van Vliet. He announced in no uncertain terms that
Varsity was going to stand on their
rights and have their home games
played In their home, meaning
Varsity gym.
The result of all this, was that
Louie (the Lump) Checov, scurried
down to a meeting held Wednesday
night to insist that the first game
and all others played In Vancouver, be played at Varsity.
Since the B.C. Association,
through Prexy Harry Johnson, has
already announced that tho fint
game will be played at VAC gym
snd since Mr. M. L. Van Vliet has
already announced that Varsity
will play the first game on their
home floor, then anything might
well happen.
We would not be surprised te
see RCAF and Army turn up at
VAC Friday night, for a little game
of their own, while the Thunderbirds have another practice.
Well, to get back to the Tuesday
game, for which we will now only
be able to give a couple of paragraphs, the Varsity Club, at all
times in the contest played good
ball and for a time performed brilliantly.
For the first time in any Varsity
game played this year, our boys
showed an ability to hot only corns
from behind in the last half (la
which they usually fade) but turn
the game into a massacre. They
started this happy business last
Saturday In the overtime period,
and Tuesday they improved on It,
but good.
Art Johnson played his bast game
of the season, to lead tho Thunderbirds with 14 points. Next In line
was Sandy Robertson with U,
while the rest of tho boys played
sterling ball to fully deserve their
Oeorge McConnell was Shores
leading marksman with 17 points,
but he accomplished this fast by
taking an astronomical number of
shots, with the result that Stores
