campaign was concluded on Saturday it was decided at a meeting
of the Gym Committee on Thursday evening that the Alumni will
continue their efforts until December 31 when a report on their
activities will be presented.
Early in the New Year It will
be decided whether to continue
the campaign into the spring, to
stop all activity until- a later date,
or to commahce with the building
The decision will depend upon the
amount subscribed at that date and
the latter alternative is considered ths most likely in the opinion

Final registration figures from
the Faculty of Agriculture reveal
an increase in Interest, by university students, in Agriculture,
according to a recent announcement.
Current enrolment in this faculty is the highest on record, with
a total of 542. From this total 310
are veterans and 232 non-veterans.
There are 38 women enrolled.
The breakdown of these figures
show that all communities in the
province are represented and, according to university officials,
most of these students will find
employment in B.C. upon graduation.

B.C. Liquor Legislation
Inadequate - - Melchior
"Never, until I came up to Canada, did I see so much
drinking of hard liquor among young people!" Lauritz
Melchior, one of the greatest heroic tenors the world has
ever known, looked earnestly at his interviewer. His cherublike face, which usually beamed, was deadly serious.
"It is not a very pretty thing to
see young girls drunk. Yet I have
seen this many times during my
visits to this country. At resorts In
British Columbia and Alberta most
of the heavy drinking is done by
youngsters in their late teens and
early twenties. . . . What makes it
even worse is that the whole thing
is done in such an air of slyness
and secrecy.
Mr. Melchior got up and paced
around his hotel suite. He turned:
"I come of a race which is famous
for its good living. I like to eat
and drink. It aids in the digestion
of my food. . , .In my native Copenhagen you can go into a restaurant and order anything you
want to drink with your meals. In
spite of this, drunkenness is practically unknown."
He stopped at the window and
looked out across the Inlet at the
snow-capped mountains. "Here in
Western Canada, drinking Is treated as a tolerated vice.' You buy
your liquor in a government- controlled store and carry it away
afi if you'd stolen It.
"Is it any wonder that T-ich an
air of 'stolen-fruit' glamour has
risen in connection with drinking
in yoi r country? The government's
strict control ot liquet is simply
inviting abuses of the htibit. Why
don't those religious organizations
\"ho cVmor for prohobitlon realise
thut by repressive measures they
are defeating their own purposes'."
Mr. Melchior went on to say that
the only sensible way to approach
drlnslng is not by "hush-hush"
methods but by open acceptance of
it as part of our daily lives. This
will not, he said, make more people drink than do now. Duse who
do not care to certainly will not
take up the practice then. As for
the alcoholic: there is no cure
for him but psychiatric treatment.
Thc most important thing is that
liquor would be stripped of its
fulse glamour an I relegated to its
proper position as a table acces-
scy which adds to Hie enjoyment
uf one's meals.

was the labor member of the state
house of New South Wales.
He swung Into the theme of his
address by mentally transporting
his audience from Sydney via Port
Darwin to London, with a few pungent and stinging phrases concerning points enroute.
Speaking of the working men of
Britain he said, "these people who
have fought twice, are determined
to get what they fought for this
time." This remark was passed in
refuting the talk of war with Russia. Of tho troubles in the English
coal mines he said thtt ths coal
miners have n: last realized that
they are an importer t part ol
England's economic life, arid are
determined therefore to gain won.,
omic recognition of this fact.
His opinion of France's collapse
was that she had to quit. She was
economically rotten, let down by
decadent democracy. "I don't know
what could, or what wil! happen
in France," he said.
Senator Grant then moved on
to Berlin where he paraphrased the
ruin of Germany In the phrase,
"AUe est Kaput". The buildings
are simply titanic neaps of rubric
The women and children are so
thin they appear to brink when
they bend to voop at the rubble.
He attacked the Russian policy
of seizing German industry and
exporting it "en masse", calling it
unjustified. He couldn't condone
it, despite the fact that he had
been a Socialist for nearly 35 yean.
In regard to the German elections
he said that, "Hungry people are
interested in political philosophies."
"Democracy must be translated
into terms of food, clothing and
shelter to have the slightest effect,"
he said.

There is at present before the university
authorities a proposal to which this editorial
takes the strongest objection. That proposal calls for the removal of the second
year study of a language for the requirements for the Bachelor of Arts degree.
On the surface, the request merit? very
little consideration, for it was put forth in
a motion in the last moments of an apathetic
general meeting of the 1946 Summer Session
Association. It has its source- however, in
the ideas of a group of high school teachers
in the province, and therefore needs very
close attention.
Objections may be taken to the proposal
on two grounds: firstly, in the matter of
scholastic standards at this university; and,
secondly, In regard to Canadian unity and
Already weakened at many places by the
over-crowded registration, this university's
academic standards should henceforth be
protected from any attempts to make degree
requirements easier. What can be excused
as necessary expedients for veterans desiring higher education In the shortest possible
time should never be regarded as ideal for
a permanent policy.
It should be quite apparent that, once the
second year language is dropped, additional requests will be made to eliminate English 202, or to drop language study altogether, or, eventually, to remove required
subjects entirely. Now is the time to take a
stand against the so-called progressive tendency in education, which would, in the
extreme, wipe out the discipline of directed
study. All too obvious in the past few years
has been the realization that a "classical"
education had its merits and that there is
need for stiffening in educational standards.
The teachers who want to remove the
second year language are looking back to
depression days, when many of them had
to get their university degrees in spasmodic
intervals, which were separated of necessity
by years of earning a living. Under such
conditions, they understandably found it
difficult to get through, say> French 2 or
Latin 2, after being removed so many years
from French 1 or Latin 1. That, indeed,
was and may be a regrettable situation, but
it would be even more regrettable to tackle
the problem in the pessimistic way proposed,
as though those depression days will always
occur every so often.
Would it not be better to work towards
more government assistance for worthy students, and to try to raise the scholastic standards in the high schools, so that more could
bo accomplished there, leaving less time-
consuming ground to be covered in university? Still, if that is too remote a possibility,
is there any need to help out a few school
teachers by taking a step which would undoubtedly lead to many others in the weakening of UBC's arts faculty?
The fact that this proposal has come from
school teachers is very probably a major
indication of what Is wrong with B.C.'s
educational organization.
Additional grounds for objection may be
found in the realization that if the proposal
is successful it would be reflected primarily
in the number of students dropping French
200. The study of French for several years
bt University does not give the graduate a
mastery of that language enabling him to
converse readily with French-Canadians.
But it does give him a beginning, and it does
permit him to understand just enough
French to endow him with a greater chance
of overcoming the cultural and political
barrier between the two parts of Canada.
Any English-speaking university in this
country which would adopt a policy that
would in any way hinder progress towards
Canadian unity could hardly be classified as
a first-class Canadian university.
the straphanger
Our dear old alma mater has been getting
rather severely criticized in the downtown
press lately, mainly on the score of students'
irresponsibility and general unawareness
of their debt to society.
This, of course, is sheer rubbish; whatever
they may have been in the good old pre-war
days, students are now disgustingly socially
responsible; Canadian campi fairly bristle
with social consciousness.
A university issue which made headlines
recently and was variously interpreted was
l'affaire Buck. One downtown paper in
particular chose to deal with it in a very
entertaining manner indeed. In its editorials
it first warmly complimented those guardians of our morals, the members of the student council' for their firm stand against
communism—and then, a few days later,
when those defenders of our liberties reversed their decision, gave them hell.
Well, that was all right. At least the editorials were consistent, even if they did disregard student opinion entirely.
However, in the intervening time between
these two editorials, a very bitter and fairly
subtle column appeared in the same paper—
a column which probably has a considerably
larger reading audience than the editorials—
which started off by attacking the Student
Council's original decision re Buck, and then
went on to thoroughly damn UBC students.
They were described as being:
(a) politically unconscious
(b) interested only in football games
and fraternities
(c) in short, snobs and finks (N.B. As
used here, this last term has positively no
social significance.)
And when Mr. Buck did come out here,
presumably at the invitation of the finks
and the politically unconscious, who took
time off from watching football games to
hear him, there was no apology forthcoming from the columnist.
He really couldn't be blamed, though; that
particular column was a masterpiece and a
retraction would have spoiled its effect completely. He picked a type of student—the
politically and culturally unconscious fink,
if you like—which may or may not exist,
and made that type the mouthpiece for all
students. I'
Which is very effective and unsound satire. It suits a large section of his readers,
though* who have long been convinced of
the general uselessness of university students and don't mind being flattered by having their sentiments thus publicly endorsed.
I rather wish this boy would come out to
the Parliamentary Forum or the Fall Plays
some time. Or the Adaskins' Sunday evening recitals—if he can get a seat, that is.
The only trouble with the last-mentioned is
that this columnist is awfully good at spotting the snob appeal of such entertainment
and might choose to write about- cultural
finks only.
Altogether, this sort of thinking is comparable to the mental processes of the person who's read Sinclair Lewis at a too impressionable age and thenceforth neatly classifies all business men as Babbitts, all ministers as Elmer Gantrys and all students as
- - - -hmmm?
Although all the students use Brock Hall at one time or
another during their University life, many do not know how,
when and why the ''Brock" originated.
A  long  felt  need  among  stu-
dents for a student building on
the campus materialized in the
opening of the Brock Memorial
Hall in January, 1940. Dedicated
to the memory of Dean and Mrs
Brock who were killed in an air-

houses AMS and Alumni Association offices as well as student

activities. Dances, fashion shows
concerts, and other special events
are held there. Between classes
groups of students meet to play
bridge or just to sit. Snack bar
provides another meeting place
for relaxation over a cup of coffee or a coke.
The first campaign towards
building the cultural and social
centre was launched In the spring
of 1936. For the next two years the
Brock campain was dropped in
order to build the Stadium. However, in 1938 renewed interest was
created by promise of government
aid. Stadium bonds were retired
ond a new issue was floated to
construct the memorial.
This is one student building on
the campus that everyone can use.
It was built for students by students.
With Malice Aforethought
It is very unfortunate that such a set of circumstances
should coincide as turned the Lauritz Melchior concert into
a near fiasco last Thursday evening. The very rare visits to
Vancouver of this continent's finest Wagnerian tenor might
well take more satisfying form.
One thing, at any rate, that the
evening established ls the fact
that the UBC Armory can take
its place as lineal descendant of
the old Arena, without a flicker
of modest hesitation. And for every rat that the Arena could
boast, the Armory can put up
two well equiped photographer
Add to that a Manchester smoke
haze, the acoustical perfection of
a machine shop, and three students hunting for a lost book at
the back of the hall, and you have
more reasons than enough for dt*
verting all that money into a
Memorial Concert Hall.
The concert itself was badly
disrupted by the failure of a
large part of the orchestra to arrive on time, but this, of course,

chior's own business, and after all
even heroic tenors must eat, If it
were not that the artist can never
be judged as a private Individual
leading a private life. From the
moment that the artist steps on
the stage, or for that matter, up tc
the easel or the desk, he ls under
an obligation, stop me if I sound
pedantic, to realize his potentialities as Plato would have said
divine Inspiration.
Art is not an esoteric thing
produced by men unattached to
the world of human affairs, but,
quite to the contrary, the most
relevant thing to the life of the
whole community that can be
found. The truth of this statemem
becomes little more evident when
it is realized that all high art
grows out of the folk art of the
community in Its early stages of
growth, and that it is only in the
relatively mature society that thc
Individual artist appears to build
Is just one of those things that
cannot be forseen or avoided.
But far worse than all these
features, and for this there can bt
no excuse, was the program presented. When an artist of the calibre of Mr. Melchior stands before
an audience and sings stuff like
'Without a Song,' it's time to
leave. Why the world's greatest
heroic tenor should so waste hi*
ability as did Mr. Melchloi
through much of the evening, ls
hard to explain.
The only conclusion can be that
Lauritz Melchior has decided tc
enter the artistic bordello already
populated by men like Stokowskl
and Iturbi. And such a suspicion

Thus it is that the artist caii-

this material which is brought tc
him already half wrought, buc

nature of the part completed substance under his hand, and by
his own artistic sensitivity as a
member of the community. Any
other action on his part is sacrilege ln every sense of the word.
The blame does not fall only on
the artist, however,1 and it ls the
very community out of which he

work. He has carried it already

Dubious Glory
ear Sir:
Congratulations to A. M. Peen
[for  his  letter  to  the  "Ubyssey"
concerning our so called "Memorial" Gymnasium.
I doubt very much whether the
widows, sons, and daughters of
those who lost their lives in
World War I and U will see how
anyone can possibly remember
the sacrifices of the dead in a
noisy gymnasium. I believe 1
should know what I am writlnj
about because my deceased father
spent-half of his life after World
War I in Shaughnessy Military
It seems that students, in trying
to raise more money for our gymnasium, have forgotten about
those ln whose memory the building is supposed to be built. For
example, the raise In AMS feet
was not really in the interest ot
the war dead. Two dollars probably means nothing to a banker's
non, but it is important to the war
widow's son.
Although I realize that it is
probably too late to change plans
now, it is my opinion that something a little more fitting should
be used to remember the ugliness
of war. To quote from Chapter
three of Ecclesiastes, "For everything there is a reason, and a
time to every purpose under the
heaven;—a time to weep, and a
time to laugh: a time to mourn,
and a time to dance—" Let ui
remember this. Yes, build a gymnasium, but please do not call it
Yours truly,
Art Peart
Noisy Memorial
Dear Sir:
There has been much discussion
ln this column of War Memorials,
in particular UBC's War Memorial.
There are those among us who
belive War Memorials serve a useful purpose and those who hold
the opposite view.
Not wishing to start another war,
I believe both view points have
their merits. Certainly it would
be a greater mistake for us to believe that war is a glorious affair,
and I think most of us do belive
that. I think our children will grow
up convinced that if they are to
hold up their heads with any pride
at all they must go out and flght
the enemy as their fathers did.
Even now they feel inferior because they have no discharge
buttons in their lapels and the
first opportunity they have of
earning them they will be only
too glad to seize it.
But by no means let us hush up
war! Let us instead flood the press
with scenes of ravaged farm lands,
cities of rubble, lifeless corpses and
disembowelled women. Let us go
to Europe and make films of the
homeless refugees and hunger-
crazed children who wander aimlessly from one pile of bricks to
the next. These are the fruits of
war! This Is what happens when
mighty man girds himself in
shining armor and marches to conquer the foe. Were a War Memorial
to be lined with scenes such as
these, some useful purpose might
be achieved.
There are those of us who point
out that the useful purpose served
by our proposed War Memorial
would be the training of physical
education instructors. Perhaps we
do need physical education instructors. We all need many things.
Just try to find a nail in this city.
But the greatest need of all and
most pressing need at this time is
the ability to get along with one
another. And we haven't any time
to waste fooling around with War
Memorial Gymnasiums either! It is
a desperate need of all mankind.
We can turn our backs and shirk
*our responsibility and confidently
suppose that our statement of our
politicians or someone else will
prevent the next war and that all
that we have to worry about is
earning a living. But this matter
won't take care of itself—It never
has. But this matter won't take care
of Itself—it never has. as Major
General G. B. Chisholm so aptly
puts it—"we must accept the uncomfortable fact that we are the
kind of people who fight
wars every fifteen or twenty years.
We always have, for as far back
as we know anything of the race,
end if we go on being the same
kind of people it is to be supposed
that we will continue to fight each
It is high time we stopped being
the same kind of people. We are
drifting back into the same complacent state of mind in which we
found ourselves after the last war.
Perhaps we will wake up before
the shells start screaming again
but I doubt it. We are too much
concerned with Beauty Contests.

Great Success
The biggest little canteen

Gone are the evenings,
when Maw's iron spluttered

Five students, picked at random
were asked to give their opinion
on last week's weather and here
they are.
Peggy Fitzpatrick of Calgary,
Alberta, second year 'arts says,
"All the hard, rugged prairie people appreciated the snow last
week (such as it was). It looked
as if Vancouver was developing a
human atmosphere but with the
rain of the last few days we're

Noni Colquhoun, a native of
Penticton taking a graduate course
in Social Work made this comment. "I preferred the snow to

the rain is that its good for my

15-6, to give Varsity a substantial

Standouts for the Vic College aggregation during the first half, and
Indeed during the whole game,
were Jim Cairnie and Don Hall.
These two boys made up the short

the majority of the College points.

15-4, leaving the Capital uty lads
sadly at the tail end of a 40-20
In the last quarter, Varsity again
outshone Victoria in scoring honors, but not quite so brightly this
time, the margin being only three
points in UBC's favor.

Hoop Fans See 'Birds Drop
Twin Bill To Wildcat Squad
The feathers of the Thunderbird tribe remain ruffled
today after a hard weekend. The beloved hoopla artists of
the Blue and Gold were defeated by a pack of angry Wildcats who were just a little too rough and ready, (with the
emphasis on neither one) for the local darlings. Friday night
saw the 'Birds go down 54-40 before the Central Washington
quintet and Saturday night they were taken to the tune of
The   Friday   night   affair   was       —————^—^————
simply a matter of not being able
to hit the hoop. To say the least,
the shooting was not hot. It was
said In some corners that lt was
not even warm, To make matters
that much worse from the spectator's point of view, the play was
pretty rough around the hoop so
the fans missed many of the scoring plays that go with good hoopla.
There was the occassional spark
of glory from both teams however,
Varsity got off to a quick start
running the score to 8-1 before
the Wildcats could realize that the
game had started. Once they got
the idea though, it took them no
time at all to rack up nine points
and continue to hold the lead from
there on in.
Harry Kermode led the Blue and
Cold quintet with 13 markers to
his credit but friend Nicholson of
the visiting squad equalled this
mark and Harvey Rude chalked up
one even dozen.
Saturday night seemed to be a
better night for basketball as far
as the 'Birds were concerned, but
only for a part of the evening. This
time lt was the Wildcats who started strong, the men of Oz coming
back to take the odd lead and
then lose lt again throughout most
of the first half.
Half time saw the Thunderbirds
on the top end of a 23-21 score.
That seemed to make the "Birdmen
annoyed however because about
three minutes after the second half
the Students had taken a 31-24
That proved the downfall of the
'Birdmen, however, for it seems
that the Wildcats were somewhat
taken aback and had to do something about it. They did lust that
and took the score to 88-all. From
there on in, the lead see-sawed
back and forth, usually with the
visitors scoring and the 'Birds tying it up.
A couple of times though the
Wildcats scored without giving the
'Birdmen a chance to tie the count
and that is what won them the
Fouls were the order of the night
at both teams took an abundance
of cracks at the other guy and
therefore stood by and watched
ihe odd free ahot hit the hemp.
A total of 51 personals were meted
out by the eager referees and even
a technical was thrown at the
'Birds for ,'delaylng the game".
Once again the main work was
put on the shoulders of the first
string but even Pat McGeer who
led the local scorers with 12 points
had a hard time from tho foul
shut line. Ritchie Nichol played
a hard game, scoring '11 markers
before having to leave th* floor
for being overly aggressive with
the referee.
Kermode 9, Franklin 6, McGeer 12,
Weber 5, Selman, Forsythe, Haas,
Munro, Scarr 1, McLean, Tostenson, Campbell, Stevenson. Total 44.
Snowmen Prep
For Ski Meets
Heavy snow falls on the local
ski slopes and heavy gym workouts have prepared the Varsity
skiers for the biggest year in the
VOC's history.
This year, under the guidance ot
coach Peter Vajda, the ski team
ls rapidly nearing peak condition.
Gym classes, week-end ski trips
to Mount Baker and a proposed
trip to Revelstoke for the Christmas week will prepare the team
for Western Canadian Ski Championships held in Revelstoke, February 6 to 9 inclusive.
An Inter-collegiate ski meet between the Universities of Alberta
and Saskatchewan, and possibly
Manitoba is tentatively slated for
the middle of February at Banff.
However, the team would like to
enter both events and thus, plans
are underway to hold both tournaments in close succession.
