The folluwin;-; reports avoid that
a givat many Canadian students
are ignorant of the present Japanese-Canadian question, and that
this ignorance does not apply
solely to those on eastern campi.
Halifax, N.S., Nov t3. - CUP's
questionnaire drew an almost
blank at Dalhousie. Willi but one
exception, comment was generally: "I don't know—I've never even
seen, a Jap."
A largo percentage of those
quizzed expressed keen distrust of
the Japaoses, but felt nsvertheless
that tolrance should be exercised,
Many doubted the advisability of
deporting the thousands of Japanese already established in British
■ Columbia, on the grounds that such
action would be undemocratic.
One person—a former B.C. resident—felt that Canada fhould rid
itself of the Japs as completely
and as quickly ast possible. But
Nova Scotians, sniffing the salt
Atlantic air, seemed to have no
•pinion whatever, said lt didn't
matter, and wondered what all the
fuss was about.
Montreal, Que., Nov 6.—The majority of the students questioned
at McGill are not in favor of deportation for the Japanese-Canadians. Some believe that the Japanese should be scattered throughout the Dominion. Otfters modified their answer by saying that
non-Canadian-born Japanese or
those hostile to Canada should bt
deported. One felt that, since he
did not live in British Columbia
he was in no position to pass any
Kingston, Ont., Nov. 6—The majority of students on the campus
feel that they are insufficiently informed on the Japanese-Canadian
problem to voice an opinion.
Among those vitally interested the
general attitude toward the Japanese is sympathetic. Suggestions
have been made for a second vote
' on the deportation question.
Most students are unable to understand why any Japanese should
wish to return to present-day Japan.
Toronto, Ont,, Nov. 6—Concrete
action has been taken by the student body at the University of Toronto. The Students' Administrative Council, representing all undergraduates, wired the Acting
Prime Minister and demanded the
deletion of Bill 15, clause g, section 3, of the National Emergencies Powers Act.
A letter informing executives of
other universities of the action it
has taken and suggesting that like
action be considered by their respective councils is being sent to
other campi.
London, Ont,, Nov. 6—In a poll
conducted among the Western students as to how to deal with the
Japanese-Canadian problem in
British Columbia, 65 per cent of
those questioned were in favor of
deportation. An additional 20 per
cent did not know that any problem existed.
The remaining 15 per cent expressed the view that true democracy and brotherhood of men
could only be achieved by eliminating race prejudice and by permitting the Japanese-Canadians to
remain as useful citizens.
Winnipeg, Man., Nov. 6—Opinions are divided on the Japanese
deportation question. Third year
students feel we are too far removed from the actual situation to
understand it. Why should they
send the Japanese east of the Rockies, merely shifting, not solving,
the problem? Others think Japanese deportation would create a
precedent for further expulsion.
Edmonton, Alta., Nov, 6—The Japanese-Canadian problem has not
been in the limelight at Alberta.
Some of the students were ignorant of the government's policy toward these people; others thought
that the government was doing the
right thing because, "under our
present system the aim is to cut
all competition out," or "let them
go back to their original home."
The majority of the opinions expressed were strongly against it.
They are as much Canadians as
anyone else," and "the war was
fought to stop such injustices," are
the typical responses of those who
feel that the I'overnment's policy
will lead to persecution of other
uroups and hinder Canada's development.

Stressing the urgency cf the situation, he pointed out that all
other Canadian medical schools arc

students who will have to go into
other professions unless a faculty
of medicine is started here.
Dr. MacKenzie said that first
year dentists and pharmacists
could be accommodated in first
year medicine. He added that a
delegation of pre-dental students
had met with him Friday to discuss the establishment of a faculty
in dentistry.
He said that they were all going
to work to obtain some of the

The suggestion was brought out at a meeting of the USC
yesterday in the Brock stage room. Bob Lister, 4th year
engineer voiced the opinion that the university was in need
of funds and the situation of the present day university
paralleled that of 1923.
The members of the body set up
to investigate the matt-.-r further
consists of Bob Lister, Barney
Murphy, Tom Fisher.
The committee ratified the constitution of the Undergraduate
Societies as amended by the Students' Council October 29, with
the exception of the question of
chairmanship. The Undergraduate
Societies favored the plan that the
chairman be eletced from the
committee itself, excluding the
presidents of the faculties. The
Students' Council favoured the
election of a chairman of the general student body.
Students' Council last night was
confronted with a brief from the
committee outlining the committee's stand on the question of the
election of the chairman. The
committee wants to receive from
Council the reasons for its stand
on the chairman question.

Studying-Without Reservations
Study space is going to be the most prominent brain-teaser at the university during
the next month and a half. Already many
have found that the early honor student catches the last available library seat in the
morning, and that affairs like Fall Congregation leave even honor students seatless
when a great majority of chairs are temporarily utilized in the Gymnasium.
Two years ago the auditorium was opened
before the Christmas exams to absorb some
of the studying students overflow from the
library. This term the auditorium is being
used as lecture space and has been booked
pretty solidly through the term for play rehearsals, pep meets and other functions.
This, of course, still leaves the studious
student overflow without a place to flow to,
and unless a great number of the. huts still
being moved to the campus can be immediately stocked with library tables and chairs
students will either begin putting a reserve
on library seats or have to do all their studying standing up or home far away from reserve books and reference texts.
The plight of student boarders in the converted army huts adjacent to the campus is
the worst.   These students added to a great
many others who are sharing accomodation
or living in makeshift quarters, will find
themselves in a bad way if they cannot find
room in well-lighted and comfortable accomodation, for study purposes between now and
Reserve books are of course the main
drawing attraction of the library, but if there
were any possibility of duplicating required
texts in a converted hut a great part of the
traffic could be drawn from the library.
If there were only a few copies of required
texts available in the book store, they would
be of more value on the reserve shelves than
in the hands of a few students.
Student librarians could probably take a
great deal of the labor burden off the shoulders of the library staff if such a system were
to go in operation, and little supervision
would be necessary as students earnest
enough to seek out extra space generally
mean business.
Every year in the second week of November the library begins to acquire a bursting-
at-the-scenes appearance, and this year, because the studying population has soared to
such a great number, the situation is about
due to turn into a crisis.

" fEET-
Welcome To The Barber Shop
The red and white barber pole now being
raised in the north basement of Brock Hall
will result in three hundred haircuts a week,
a barbershop quartette, and a predominance of well-groomed males for the remainder of the year.
Establishment of a barber shop has been
a talking point for several years which finally merged from the conversation stage to
lather and clipper actuality this week.
Treasurer Miller and President Ainsworth
who backed the plan, will probably be the
first customers whether they need a haircut
or not.
All in all, the plan is a good one, and will
prove a great boon to on-the-campus lodgers, and students in possesion of late lab
timetables or the affinity to stay out and
study on the campus all day.
Barbers in the university area who have
voiced to the scheme are merely splittings
hairs, argumentatively speaking, and are
probably sorry they didn't think of the idea
first. They could not handle the great volume of business continually sprouting on the
campus now, by themselves.
The only objection to the shop is that it
corners off potential cloakroom space which
might be found seriously lacking if the Brock
is ever found to be roomy enough for any
more large functions during the winter term.
There will be no space now for either the
barbershop of the cloakroom to expand un-
till Brock Hall is itself extended.
Unless the barbershop is to have a separate hut to itself in the future there will
probably have to be some allowance made
for additional cloak room space in Brock
Hall soon.
# StreSSeS   and    Strains     ... by Bruce Bewell
• ONE of the great student relaxations of
the continental universities which seems
to have fallen into decline at the University
of British Columbia is the pastime of singing just for the sheer joy of singing.
The main cause of this decline is probably
that, with the exception of the engineers and
the veterans, no two students know the lyrics to any one song. Periodic attempts to
get the students of this university to break
forth into song simultaneously meet with
the same above response that such efforts
would get at a deaf-mute convention. No
wonder the Mamooks are slowly going grey.
That Piccolo
When Bandmaster Delamont plays "Hail
UBC" at a game or pep-meet the response
is just one step better than no response at all.
One or two hardy souls who happen to be
carrying Tillicums with them join in but get
discouraged when they receive no support.
Besides the piccolo keeps drowning them
Once a year the Greeks get together in a
good natured attempt to sing each other
down. This is a close approximation to 'the
informal gatherings of the pre-war Europ-
pean students but falls far short. What is
needed is more of the "we're not the best but
we sing the loudest" spirit.
The no doubt famous engineers pep meets
deep in the Applied Science building features
a spark of good fellowship and a brand of
off-key singing that is unique. Accompanied on a battered piano by a blond electrical with a rapidly receeding hairline the
redshirts give voice ,to the old traditional
chants of their faculty with such vigor that
they can be heard halfway to the gates if
the wind is blowing right.
Unfortunately  when  confronted  by   an
• skipping lectures
audience the boys get a severe case of stage
fright and drop their voices to a dull roar.
In some cases they even forget whole lines
and insert rather uninteresting "lah lah
lah's" instead.
Perhaps what is needed is the introduction
of some new songs. These need not be original efforts although there is room for new
lyrics with a strictly local appeal. Maybe
if some of the campus bards would turn
their hands a little further affield than fitting new verses to "John Brown's Body",
"Stein Song," or Notre Dame's "Victory
The introduction of a few student songs
of the Middle Ages might prove interesting.
The day might even arrive when groups of
redshirts will gather to render "Gaudeamus
Igitur" in the original Latin. After all, it
is fundamentally a medieval version of
"Here's to Good Old Coca-Cola."
Sing Us Another One
The Jokers have the right idea. If the
vice-president would only transcribe some
of their spontaneous and almost unrehearsed gems they would probably catch on like
wildfire. They are zany enough to go over
big; in fact almost zany enough to make the
Hit Parade.
Of course there are occassions other than
those of the day. At such times the rendering of the old established tear-jerkers
reaches on all time high and we do mean
high. It is two bad wartime restrictions limit the number of such get-togethers each

President of Harvard
Favours Scholarships
• NATIONAL system of scholarships and a strengthening
of present universities were advocated recently by Dr.
James B. Conant, president of Harvard University, as the
only practicable method of tapping the nations latent talent
in fields of advanced training and research.
Pointing out that there were various types of professional and vocational education that could be
given at only a few centres in even
highly populated districts in the
USA, Dr. Conant declared that
the nation needed a vastly expanded scholarship policy for students who would have to live
away from home.
Citing medicine as an example,
Dr. Conant said that it was literally impossible to give adequate
instruction in clinical medicine except in cities that were large
enough to support large hospitals.
Similarly, advanced work in the
arts, sciences and letters could be
performed only in those places
possessing well-equipped laboratories.
He emphasized that the establishment of research centres at
every point in the United States
were general education was beyond the high school level was
literally impossible. The only alternative, he contended, was the
establishment of a national system
of scholarships.
Dr. Conant expressed the hope
that a careful report would be
prepared to indicate national needs
for research funds and scholarships in such fields as social psychology, cultural anthropology, educational psychology, sociology
and economics. He maintained that
a strong case could be made for
the strengthening of universities
in these fields, "quite as much as
in the so-called natural sciences."
An even stronger case could be
made, he contended, for the necessity of attracting a large number
of men of ability, originality and
wide imagination into academic
careers in what he termed the
"philosophical aspects of the social
studies—in particular, into philosophy itself."
"We must have a spirit of tolerance," he added, "which allows the
expression of all opinions, however heretical they may appear. On
this point there can be no compromise. We are either afraid of
heresy within our universities, or
we are not. If we are afraid, there
will be no adequate discussion of
the great questions of the day, no
fearless exploration of the basic
problems forced on us by the age
in which we live. The door will be
shut to the development ot a culture which will satisfy our needs."

FELLOWS FINDING FORT       Free BalljTicket
• ' AFTER spending some of their best years in drab green

these   gay   folks   need   recreation,
and they get it.
Expecting to see a cozy "rec-

warm stove, tables and chairs, a
couple of good looking fellows and

Hallowe'en dance thrown by one

You'll be swamped with offers of

The pot-bellied stoves the fellows use have a definite practical
application. Each evening at a

on and the bull session starts.
With a little cake or a few cookies

in true college fashion. If you've^
ever been in a bull session at coffee hour you will know how they

• LETTERS To The Editor
The Ubyssey,
Dear Madam:
May I be permitted to lodge a
complaint against the news policy
of The Ubyssey In relation to the
Aggie Undergrad Society?
It seems that willful discrimination is being carried on against
this student body. To site a few
recent examples—no mention of
the Annual Aggie Banquet (held
on Thursday, October 25) was presented in The Ubyssey even
though tui news was brought to
the Pub in time to meet the Friday 10 a.m. deadline for the Saturday paper. Very seldom have
reporters been assigned to cover
events such as th» Annual Fall
Field Day (held two weeks agj),
election of student representatives, or undegraduate meetings.
I believe this situation might be
the result of oversight, or perhaps
indifference. Please remember
that the Agriculture Faculty is
one of the "originals" at UBC and
it is still very much olive—and
Aggie Press Ed.
Editors of The  Ubyssey;
Dear Editors:
I was quite interested in your
column, "Beauty on the Spot" on
Saturday last.
Miss Isobel McKenzie wrote a
very interesting article on the
UBC students' religious life (or
lack of it.l as seen,' from her point
of view. It reminded me much of
something remembered from the
Bible:- Luke 18; 10-14. She remarked, "As one perhaps more
intimately connected with tho
good life than most, I feel myself
peculiarly suited to bring this
message to my fellow students."
May / ask who is she to decide if
our moral standards aro, or are
not, acceptable to Our Father?
Perhaps she has forgotten also,
the words pronounced by Jesus,
who said, "Neither do / condemn
thee; go and sin no more."

• WHEN THE Thunderbirds run out onto the turf at Capilano Stadium tomorrow night they will be strictly behind the eight ball, as the saying goes. To win both games
will not be enough. They must win both games by at least a
touchdown and a convert, and maybe a couple of rouges for
good measure. For our bungling 'Birds have 12 points to
make up as a result of the 12-0 whitewashing they absorbed
in Edmonton a couple of weeks ago.
This three-game total points playoff system has its drawbacks but it is the only fair way in which the series could
have been run off. As it is UBC has an advantage in that
they get a bye into the finals and two out of the three games
are played on the coast.
Everything On Their Side
But they had the tougher trip, playing two games in four days with
a 12-hour train ride in between, and they had to play before they were
ready. The Thunderbirds had only two weeks' practice before making
the Prairie trip and 12 individuals in the Edmonton game. They looked
much better in Saskatoon but injuries slowed them down up there.
Now they have two games behind them, another week of gruelling
practice sessions, five additions to their lineup—Reg. Clarkson, Johnny
Gray, Tony McLorg, Gus Carmichael and Ole Bakken—all experienced
players who couldn't take time off to make the Prairie trip, and a hometown crowd to cheer them on. What more could they desire?
Golden Bears Are Tough
On the other hand they will be facing a hard-driving, well-drilled,
rough, tough outfit in Maury Van Vliet's Golden Bears. The 'Birds found
out just how tough they were in the Edmonton go. They trudged into the
dressing room after the game with their faces looking very much like
a piece of raw hamburger. In fact every one of the linemen had at least
one facial cut of some sort.  They should be good games.
SHORT STUFF—Both games will be aired over CKMO in Vancouver
and relayed to CKUA in Edmonton. . . . The hockcyists got away to a
good start Sunday night in the New Westminster Industrial League witli
a 7-1 win over Pacific Veneer. . . . Only the lack of practice kept them
from hitting the twenties. . . . They spent the last half (the games are
played in two 30-mtnute halves to save time) standing around the Veneer
goal taking pot shots at the harassed goal tender, but most of the shots
bounced off the back boards.

fans aren't talking much about
it. but Trojan Coach Jeff Cravath
tried an experiment this fall that
didn't work.
At the start of the fooball sea-
ton. Cravath was sorely in need
of a quarterback for his "T" formation. He had one—Freshman
Jim Peterson, the best passer on
the squad—but he needed one
So Cravath decided that thc
other was going to be big Jack
Nichols—.tar of tiie Trojans' basketball team, but a novice at football.
It wa.s .slow work. For a while
the Trojans were handicapped by
lack of a centre large enough so
that Nichols wouldn't have to
kneel   to   yet   the   ball—which   the
quarterback must handle on every
'•T"  formation  play.
Nichols, you see, is a well-built
lad of six feet three inches—an
unusual height fur a "T" formation quarterback.
Once Nichols learned to handle
the ball, he had to learn to pass.
Slinging a football isn't quite like
feeding a basketball. Nichols did
have the touch for a soft pass,
easy to catch. But he had trouble
with range and direction.
Nevertheless, he made progress
and Cravath appeared encouraged.
As a matter of fact, it .seemed
for a time that Nichols weuld start
against UCLA in the Trojan;'
opening   game.
But, before that, the converte I

was because Nichols never did
particularly like football, or, perhaps some other reason. At any
rate, his performance was anything but spectacular.
Just about that time. Freshman
Veil Lillywhite came out for practice—and got the first string job.
On the heels of that development,
word came "that the Trojans' former third-string quarterback —
Jerry Bowman—was. returning to
And, in turn, Nichols was relegated to end—developed a leg in-
,'iiry, and  later a  back  injury.
Tho find upshot of it all is that
Cravath now has a pair of fine
quarterbacks and Nichols—a truly
fine cage centre—is practicing basketball these days instead of football.
Just one of those things.
flurry loon disappeared and gave
way to blue skies in the afternoon as Coach Maury Van Vliet
showed his gridders around the
UBC campus.
The University of Alberta team
is staying at tha Acadia Hutments,
commonly referred to as "The
Fort" by UBC students.
Coach Van Vliet has his team
in top shape for the Hardy Cup
finals which are slated foi tomorrow night at Capilano Stadium,
and Saturday afternoon at the
UBC Stadium.
But th; Golden Bears are promised some stiffer competition when
they meet the UBC Thunderbirds
this time. Strengthened with the
addition of five seasoned gridders.
and whipped into condition by
Coach Greg '|Hardrock" Kabat,
the Blue nnd Gold presents a formidable aggregation for this series.
The 'Birds go into the fray decided underdogs with a 12-point
deficit in the three-game total
point series. The Bearj had no
trouble blanking the disorganized
UBC outfit that made the prairie
trip with n 12-0 score.
In order to take the famed Hardy Cup, tha Thunderbirds must
win the two games by a combined
total of at least 13 points. It's a
tough assignment, but the 'Birds
will be out to do it.
Both games will be broadcast by
radio station CKMO, here in Vancouver, and by CKUA in Edmonton. Frank Quigley, Edmonton
