'Stand Between'
Russia, U. S.
Winnipeg, Nov. 20—(CUP)
—A new bloc of nations, democratic in nature, to act as a
bulwark between the "extreme
overbearing capitalism of the
United States" and the "intolerant form of totalitarianistic
Communism in Russia" was
advocated by M. J. Coldwell,
national leader of the CCF, in
a speech to some 700 students
This bloc, composed of those socialistic democratic nations, such as
Norway, Sweden and Australia, he
declared, could bring peace and order
to the world, through intelligence and
Canada, ho advised, should align
herself with such a bloc.
''We in Canada are in a very advantageous position to help bring
this condition about", Coldwell said.
"We as part of the British Commonwealth of Nations closely linked to
the United States can do much toward   better   understanding."
Ho went on to stress that the world
is "on the march" and that there is
a great need  for keen leadership.  A
Researchers Reveal
UBC Legs Pleasing
Have UBC women really got square legs?
This is the question that worried males about the campus | its formation we must not lose sight

effect appeared reentry in the Manitoban.

During the course of the inquiry,
one male was reported to have said
that UBC girls had adopted the "new
look" with enthusiasm, "but then
they have square legs."
The comment has caused a flurry
of concern here and a number of
troubled males have conducted inquiries to determine just what re illy
is the shape of the female underpinnings.
Surveyor:-;  have   thrown   the aa'dv. s
whole-heartedly into their work and
have toiled unceasingly to find tho
answer. Although all reports are
not yet in, primary investigations
have   proved   extremely   gratifying.

that   the   gains   of   UBC   are   entirely

7 Hour Meet Hears USC
Charges — Pub Defence
A committee representing the Undergraduate Societies
Committee has passed a vote of confidence in the UBC Publications Board.
"The USC sub-committee is satisfied that The Daily Ubyasqp
does not have a policy of fostering student discord," the group
declared. . •   •   •
•This   statement   was  the  result  of<j> : ;	
a heated debate between groups representing the USC and the publications Board Wednesday afternoon and
For seven and one-half hours, representatives sat in a smoke-filled
Brock Hall clubroom to thrash out a
resolution which could have resulted
in the mass resignation of the entire
Publications Board.
The Eesolution, published in part
in The Daily Ubyssey last week, and
termed by Editor-in-Chief Don Ferguson "a definite slap in the face,'
dealt mainly with criticism of editorial
policy and news coverage.
Chairman Bob Harwood labored
from mid-afternoon until 10 p.m. in
an effort to got both sides to meet
en what he termed "a common
In effect, resolutions drawn up at
tho meeting recognized:
1. Continued freedom of editorial
2. That the editorial board of The
Daily Ubyssey and tlie USC subcommittee find themselves in agreement as to the "reasonable and intelligent" exercise of discretion in
the handling of news stories and
writing   of  headlines.
3. The responsibility of the editorial
board   to   its   student  subscribers.
Following aro the steps to bo taken
as  recommended  at  the  meeting:
1. Tlie Daily Ubyssey will take
steps to acquaint tlie various organizations with public relations technique
that will insure adequate news coverage  of  their  activities.
2. USC member Ron Grantham will
undertake tho handling cf all notices
to be inserted  ia Tlie Daily Ubyss.y.

Pillsbury Scores
Vets' Deriders
UBC's problem of differences
tween veteran and non-veteran
dents arose again yesterday
R, W, Pillsbury of the Biology department charged that "certain j>wn
punks" who were non-veteran ttm-
dents had been overheard makiatg
insulting remarks concerning the disabilities of some . ex-servicemen en
the campus.
"I wasn't asked by anyone to pass
,tl.i along," he told a Biology 190
class, "but you non-veterans should!
have a talk with anyone who is l&»&-
ing himself, to put it mildly, into tar
gutter by making these remarks."
These "young punks", he said, haJ
referred   to   disabled   individuals' sx
i "Lofty" and "Limpy".

An apparent case of mistaken identity led to the
removal of a radiator cap from a car parked on the campus
In it's place was a note which said, "I had that cap
swiped from my '2!) Chev. Thanks for the return of it."
However, the victim, Harold Newton, second-year
Applied Science student, told The Daily Ubyssey that he
had bought tlie radiator cap "brand new" from the Western
Auto Supply two years a.m>.
"I'm not looking for trouble,'' the disconcerted Newton
said. "I just want that cap back."
\'"hile hoping that the person responsible for the
mistake will contact him, Newton is checking to see whether
he still has the bill of sale for the auto part, to establish
proof of ownership.

Normally The Daily Ubyssey is a staunch
booster of extra-curricular activity. Members
of the Publications Board have long been
noted for engaging in non-academic pursuits
to such an extent that some of the more
tolerant professors have been moved to inquire solicitously if their courses were interfering with activities of greater interest.
However, iri yesterday's mail there arrived the shadow cast before a coming event.
We received a Christmas card.
If this early greeting conjured up visions
only of fir trees, and holly and other such
pleasant objects we would continue plugging
extra-curricular activities until the keys fall
off our typewriter.
But such is not the case. With the instinct developed during three and one-half
years on the tip of Point Grey we unfortunately have come to associate Christmas not
so much with a man in a red suit and a white
beard and yearly letters from distant friends
as with the registrar and polite notes from
the dean.
This year there will be no formal exams.
Instead we are told that more emphasis will
be placed on mid-terms. Of course, the
powers that be continue, there will be short
one hour quizzes in regular lecture periods
just before Christmas but do not confuse
these with regular examinations.
You can rest assured we will not. An
examination by any other name is still something the registrar and the dean somehow get
to hear about. Therefore we are going to
play it foxy and start studying.now.
We do not wish to be selfish about this
and come back after Christmas to have the
campus all to ourselves so we tactfully suggest that our readers follow suit. After all
it is two months since we returned to lectures
and we all have to start sometime.
So' in spite of our policy of encouraging
social pursuits we_ take this opportunity to
suggest a seasonal cut in extra-curricular
activities and a little more academic effort.
It is later than you think,
once over
"Kill that lead story on the Library fire,
Tennant. We've got a chess club notice instead."
Rosemary Hodgins, the new editor-in-
chief of the Daily Ubyssey, leered over the
news desk at me.
I just sat there, quaking under the spell
of ihe former Undergraduates Societies Chairman who had unselfishly resigned her position
to undertake the reorganization of the Student Publications Board.
"But Boss," I began, "the Library just
"Never mind that!" she snapped. "Don't
you know about the chess club?"
I admitted meekly that I didn't know
about the chess club.
"That's the trouble with you darn reporters. Ferguson got you started off wrong."
She cast a shattering glance at the scalp
of the late editor-in-chief. It was dangling
from the office notice board. A brief epitaph
below read, "He became drunk with power."
"Well, the chess club," she continued,
"Is holding its final competitions."
"When?" I asked.
"This week^" she said.
"But what day, Boss?"
"Every day. They're fighting a positively
exciting battle. When I was over at the beginning of the week McElroy had Simpson cornered. He couldn't move. I was over two
days ago, too, and Simpson still couldn't move.
It was SO exciting,
"But I wouldn't be surprised if he's
worked out a solution by now. You see, he's
had a day off while the janitors dusted the
cobwebs off the chessmen. It'll be a hot news
"So's a fire," I suggested. I was being
cheeky, but the pun didn't go over.
"Get working on that," she ordered. "I've
got an editorial to write."
Dear Sir:
You have offered what you call
"facts" to an erring body of
students who without these "facts"
might otherwise perhaps be bewitched to love von Schuschnigg.
I have no idea whatever of the
verity of your conclusions based
upon them for this reason: you
have attached a public, national
man in destructive criticism—some
what incantious and inconsiderate
an action it seems to me, since
surely none can judge the motives
of another. Whereas you have
judged and are trying it seems to
cause to bo judged the motives
of some body here.
What are another's motives to
you? Are you aiming to aid your
fellows in educating theirs or are
you so abanded in your own you
cannot see the possibility of error
in yourself? You might consider ,
Chaucer's words: "Great peace is
found in littlo busy-ness and war
kicks against a sharpened awl".
Or Christ's "Seek not to remove
the mute from thy brother's eya
but that than knoweth first the
beam is surely out of thine own."
The intelligence of a man can
be measured by what he knows
he knows not, the dignity of a
man by how many he calls greater,
but the worth of man only God
can judge.

Fair Play?
Dear Sir:
In reference to the letter published by our paper in the issue
of November 12 last relating to
UN elections and signed by Murray D. Bryce.
I hestitate to think of such a
letter on unprejudiced statement •
on the part of one, who professes
fair play. I cannot find any reason
In the statement that an equal
division of leftist and rightist
thought is essential for seeming
I suppose that the writer would
have had those who arrived from
another meeting refrain from the
exercise of their rightful and
democratic duty to note, as members, merely because they came
in a body.
I fail to see where coming from
another meeting of necessity in
numbers lessens the Individual
right of members to vote. Specking for myself as one of the group,
I voted as I wished; and regret
to read the thoughtless criticism
of Mr. Bryce. Tho "miraculous in-
Legion Letter
"What's it going to be about, Boss," I
thought I'd better play up to her a little.
"I'm writing about the botanical gardens," she said.
"What about them?"
"Well, I think it's so nice that they've
got plants and flowers in them, don't you?"
"But Boss," I objected, "what about the J
Faculty of Implied Science. They had a big
python parade the other night and blew hell
out of the city hall, just for the laughs. Fcrgie
was going to write an edit—"
"Never mind what that worm was going
to do, I'll tell you what he was going to do.
Promote inter-faculty dLscord, that's what!"
"Besides," she said, "I think the botanical
gardens look so nice at this time of the year.
Each little plant and flower is all a-tremb1'-1
about its plans for mating in the Spring. A
little bit of sensationalism, I suppose, but
under our new policy it won't be carried to
"By the way, Boss, Grant Livingstone
was in. He didn"t like you publishing that
column of classified ads without his permission."
"I know," she said sadly, "I was talking
to him about it yesterday. I cried on my pillow last night. Just to think—me making big
decisions like that without consulting Council.
I must bc getting drunk with power, just like
that awful Ferguson man."
"But I'm not really, am I?" she concluded with typical feminine logic.
I was about to agree with her when the
phone rang. I reached for the receiver. It
wasn't there. But it kept ringing.
"Gotta answer that phone," I told myself.
"Gotta answer that—" and then I looked
"No, I gotta turn off that darn alarm
clock. Gotta get catt to the Pub this morning.
Fergie'll kill me if I don't do that story about
those charges Rosemary Hodgins made
against the Publications Board."
Tho Branch woujd like to take this
rather belated opportunity to express
its thanks to Mai Lindsay for the
service he rendered in his handling
of the Legionette, the Legion Letter
and other phases of Branch Publicity,
almost since the re-opening of
Branch 72 in October 1913. The task
was most exacting and took much of
Hal's time. It was chiefly owing to
this that Hal was unable to continue.
The Branch realizes this and, while
very sorry to see Hal go, appreciates
that his first duty is to the furtherance of his education. Best of Luck,
Hal and thanks.

o Spurned Hitler
Says Austria Needs Food
A gray-haired little man in a dark grey suit who was once
'cheeky" to Adolph Hitler, Herman Goering, and Heinrich
irrrjider, told an audience of 700 in the Auditorium Tuesday
r.;.;:;t that the only hope for tlie reconstruction of Austria lay
.i evacuation of occupation forces and a supply of food for the
approaching winter.
 ♦   He was Kurt von Schuschnigg, one
time Chancellor  of the war scarred
Tiro aging diplomat, once the central
figure of central European intrigue
told of his "fatal" meeting with Hitler
at Berchtesgarten in 1938, when Germany signed a treaty respecting Austria's sovereignty.
Hitler told him then, he said, that
if "France had stopped the advance
into the Rhineland things might have
been different, but new nothing can
stop us."
"You are foolish to expect aid from
Britain,' the Feuhrer was said to have
told him.
"Weeks after this document was
signed my country ceased to exist for
seven years," he said.
Explaining why Austria did not
forcibly oppose the occupation he
enumerated the amount of ^rms available at the time.
"To protect 300 miles of unfortified border we had seven and one
half well trained but poorly equipped
divisions. We had no heavy artillery,
Vour anti-aircraft guns, and not more
than ten planes."
"To resist would have been to sign
the suicide order for my people," lie

Hodgins Leaves Dispute Hearing
(Continued  from  Page  1)
with the presentation of criticisms of
the editorial board by members! of
the USC delegation.
Don Ferguson then led the editorial
board In a reply to the USC subcommittee's statements.
Debate bogged down, however, after
some hours, since Rosemary Hodgins,
USC chairman was no longer present
It was found by the meeting that
clarification was needed for some of
the inquiries she had made of the
Pubsters before the left
In regard to the resolutions drawn
up yesterday, Ferguson stated that
"they are already part of the policy
under which we have been operating
since September."
Senior Editor Hal Pinchin moved
to the effect that the Publications
Board "commend the USC for their
desire to improve the campus service"
One request came from USC's Miss
Hodgins, who asked that Ferguson
summarize the editorial policy
"Our editorial policy," he said, "is
truth and accuracy."
From the dispute over the highlighting of news which would be
damaging to the University reputation
came a USC vote of thanks.

You can chalk up last Monday's Annual Roadrace a.s
another in a series of great campus classics. The Intramural
cross country grind has always been one of the most colorful
athletic events of the year out on the Mall, and this year's edition
was no exception. Ivor Wynne and his Intramural "Clowncil"
and sophomore Bob Piercy put on a great show, while the
latter treated the two-thousand-odd spectators to an exciting,
record-breaking performance,
As a matter of fact, there always has been a goodly crowd
at the finish of the race. Every year a coterie of track enthusiasts
turn up at the stadium hoping to view a close finish, or a
gripping backstretch duel on that final rugged lap around the
cinders. And there is always the usual quota of sadists who
lean avidly over the railing, muttering a secret prayer that a
few of the weary harriers will collapse in a heap somewhere;
on that final quarter mile. Year after year the co-ed corner
is filled with disheveled females who bite their nails in anguish
as their luffed ones stagger to the finish for team and glory. What
price devotion! (This corner cynically suspects, however,
that the lassies' chief concern is whether Joe will be in sufficient
shape for the evening date). All the "boys" are out too, wildly
cheering their last intramural candidate as he puts on that last
blazing sprint to edge put some joker (spelled with a small
letter, Hayward!) for 105th place.
Amusement While You Eat
Ah yes! It's become an annual noon hour specialty. For
everyone, that is, except the suckers who are jocd into donning
the scampers for a few intramural points, after having bo :a
out on a bender the eve preceding. As your humble scribe
groaned to his fellow pubsters last year, after crawling across
the finish line: "Ulcers were never like this."
UP AND AWAY—Action a-plenty such as seen in last year's
hoopla tussle against the Central Washington Wildcats will be
on view again this year. The Wildcats meet the 'Birds on the
UBC maples in a two game series this weekend.
'Birds To Meet
In Two Weekend
Thunderbird wings arc beginning to quiver in anticipation
of the flight against a highly-touted Central Washington
quintet. The 'Birds and the Wildcats will tangle in a two-game
series this Friday and Saturday in Ihe UBC Gym, in what

Ice Hockeymen
To Meet Cubs
Thunderbird pucksters head
for New Westminster Sunday
at 1:30 for a game with Queen
City Cubs, which will decide
who shall be sole owner of,
second spot in the infant Senior
B league.
Both teams sport a won-lost record
of 2-1 so the game should be close
all the way, with the UBC icemen
slight favorites.
. Skull practice was featured this
week with Paul Thompson and Frank
Frederickson drilling the boys on
defensive ahd offensive tactics.
Thompson, as hockey fans should
know, played left wing for the National Hockey league Black Hawks
for ten years, and following his active
playing days took over the coaching
chores, leading the ChiHawks to the
Stanley Cup in '40-'41. He then came
out to the coast to mentor the Canucks to the North American Senior
Amateur crown a couple of years
Both Frederickson and Thompson
have felt the need for change, after
the 9-3 drubbing their boys received
in Nanaimo. Bill House will be in
the nets, in place of Murray Wiggins,
while Hass Young will move out to
the favoured wing slot on the Tor-
fason-Wagner-Young  line.
In another move designed to .strengthen the defense, Frederickson has
decided to use 18-year old rookie
Bob Peebles from Trail. He will
form the second defence pair With
Mel Hughes behind Terry Nelford
and  Captain  Bob Saunders.
ThcfO men will have their hands
full in stopping the flashy centremen
of the Cubs, Doug Reid, who scored
8 goals in Westminster's recent win
over  tho  beacons.
