 Leadership Role For Students In The Post War World
• UNANIMOUS decision of the
delegates at the Western Universities Conference at Edmonton last
week was that University students,
because of their training, should
become the leaders in their respective communities on graduation, Harold Parrott, one of the
UBC delegates reported Monday.
This   was   brought   out   in   the
seminars by the Hon. Solon Low,
Alberta minister of education and
"Prime function of the university is to prepare the student for
leadership in his community," said
the minister.
Dave Williamson, editor-in-ohief
of The Manitoban, questioned the
minister of education on the advisability of instituting student
guidance instructors in the high
schools to advise students on their
future university courses.
The minister felt that proper
training for such teachers would
be of great assistance to students
in choosing their university
Mr. Litterud of the University
of Alberta Extension Department
stressed that leadership by university graduates would be of
great assistance to rural communities    in    setting    up    discussion
groups    and    other    educational
He emphasized the personal contact method of speaking to the
prospective university student and
personally advising him on his
university course.
In the lengthy recommendations
and resolutions seminar under the
leadership of Bud Eggenberger,
University of Alberta law student,
the following resolutions were approved:
1. Advancement of extension
departments of universities.
2. Increase of scholarship with
high entrance qualifications to uni
3. Exchange of English-speaking
and French-speaking students In
4. Draft a constitution to perpetuate future conferences.
5. Invite Eastern universities to
attend future conferences.
6. The next conference to be
held at Saskatchewan in 1945.
7. Compulsory physical education in all universities.
Other resolutions adopted at the
conference  will  be  published   in
future articles by the delegates.
The Manitoba delegates introduced a resolution stating that Uni
versity newspapers should enter
into political controversies.
"Any University newspaper editor has the ability to judge the
accuracy of the articles presented
by students on political subjects,'-
Williamson said.
Faculty Interference should be
a I a minimum, the Manitoba editor
...Don McGill, UBC delegate,
strongly contested the Manitoba
Said McGill: "No university
newspaper editor should be saddled with the responsibility of political backwash that may result
from such controversies."
He added that a university newspaper is for students and should
be kept  primarily  for news  and
articles of interest to them.
Alberta introduced a resolution
on improvement of rural areas,
but UBC delegates felt that it did
not have any connection with University problems in the post-war
world and so the resolution was

Barry Sleigh, president, stated
that the fee decision would be advisable in view of the fact that
the time spent in promoting such
a campaign could well be spent in
organization of convocation and
other ceremonies.
Sleigh   also   stressed   the  point
that if a reduction was obtained a
corresponding   increase   in   other
fees would have to be levied.
The suggestion that the sum be
spread over the four years in individual two-dollar fees, was advanced. It was pointed out that
the reduction from 15 to 8 dollars
would be compensated by the
money paid in by students who
leave before graduation.
In any case, it was felt that some
agitation should be continued in
order that next year's administration would be impressed with the
seriousness of the issue.
A discussion of the traditional

Dirty-Nine Re-enforced
•   UBC's gallant Student Council
has been forced to obtain reinforcements for their game with
the Pub.
Cowering Council members announced today that they would
have to use members of both this
year's and next year's council's in
order to have a force fit to face
the* followers of Thoth.
Interviewed on this development
Pub spokesmen laughed quietly
into their typewriters.
"All the more for the slaughter,"
was the concensus of Pub opinion.
Meanwhile plans have be«n made
for the disposal of the bodies after
the game.
"Our first move," stated Pub
God Marg Reid, "will be to take
over the AMS office. We can certainly use the accommodation;—
all except the padded cells."
Meanwhile council members are
considerably heartened by the influx of new blood. They calculate
that by setting up a Mood pool,
they can keep a full team on the
floor during the entire game, without exhausting available supplies
of adrenalin. Tuesday, February 22, 1944-

Canadian Youth Commision
The University of British Columbia has
been requested to submit a brief to a Canadian Youth Commission hearing, expressing
its views with regard to the topics under
discussion by the commission.
Council has agreed to set up a representative committee which will work on the
brief and submit its findings.
Since the Commission is not known to
the majority of the students at UBC, it
might be of interest to enumerate the plans.
"To formulate proposals relative to the
welfare of Canadian Youth in the post-war
period and to promote their acceptance by
government and public and private agencieg
which have responsibilities in this field", is
the objeot of their work.
Projects included in their program of
investigation include studies of interests, attitudes, opinions, activities of youth, and the
institutions serving youth.
In the field of policy formation, where
committees will attempt to understand and
interpret the point of view of young people,
are such subjects as employment, physical
and mental health, recreation, family living,
citizenship, religion and life philosophy and
so on.
It is obvious that all the subjects here
under consideration are ones which have
been dealt with by some groups, if not the
student body as a whole, during their cur-
ricular and extra-curricular activities.
Many of these questions have been
topics of discussion at the last two large conferences in which students of this university
have participated.
UBC can be a valuable help to the
members of the commission because it has
already considered these matters and has
recognized many of the problems which confront the youth of today.
When a committee is appointed to work
on the brief, it should be a representative
group, well-versed in present day problems
of young people, a group which has the
confidence of the student body and the Ability to express itself concisely.
There is a multitude of topics whiqh
may be investigated. There is the problem
of unemployment which will undoubtedly
arise after this war. There is the problem
of the expansion of education and of the
university itself.
The supply of controversial matters
seems inexhaustible. All that remains to be
found are people who are able to discuss
these problems maturely, and present a report which will be a condensed version of
university opinion.
This movement is nation-wide and its
influence is great. The fact that the leaders
of the Commission have requested our help
testifies to their confidence in our ability.
Let us not disappoint them.

Fifty Years Ago in the Ubyssey.
Fifty years ago today, the campus was
agog with news of the heroic defense of
Union College, otherwise known as the
battle of Bull Toot (I said "Toot"), carried
out by the men of number one section, number seven platoon, C company, COTC.
These hardy veterans of many an interfaculty snow fight, under the brilliant leadership of Sergeant Major Barry "interfrat"
Sleigh, and Corporal Dennis "Siphon" Don-
avon, withstood a concerted attack by double
their number of unidentified enemies, who,
so the lieutenant said, were attempting to
destroy Union College.
For their gallant action the surviving
members of the section were awarded "The
Order of the Purple Petunia" by the VCF,
while those heroes who lost their lives were
buried with fully military honors, and due
consideration to fertilization.
For the benefit of those few students
who have come to Varsity since the time of
the great battle we reprint here a blow by
blow description of the action, as it appeared
in the Ubyssey of February 22, 1944.
"The battle took place in the dense
jungle lying just across the bridge on the
way to Union College." (ED. NOTE: This
location is now covered by a small section
of the East corner of the North East wing of
the Arts building. It has an area about
three times that of the present Applied
Science building.)
Number one section dug in to meet the
attack at approximately 1530 hours. They
were united to a man in their determination
to make short work of the enemy (note: so
that they could finish the battle in time to
be dismissed at four o'clock) and in their
realization of the seriousness of the problem
(see note).
They took up their positions under the
direction of CSM Sleigh, of whom it must
be said that he knew the bushes around
Union College very thoroughly, having evidently studied the terrain on previous
The enemy soon made its appearance,
crashing silently through the brush, and
striding along at a crawl through the grassy
The approach of the enemy was marked
by the firing of a single blank round, the
other half of the ammunition being saved
for emergencies, and the battle began.
The enemy first tried an infiltering
movement from the North. As this was
strictly against the rules the defenders very
properly ignored them and continued with
the business at hand. Namely, rolling snowballs in preparation for the main battle.
The attacking force now resorted to a
new strategy. Their commanders, Corporals
McKay  and  McLean,  realizing  that  they
were under a great handicap because of
their ignorance of the terrain, sent out a
spy to reconnoiter.
This scurvy villain claimed diplomatic
immunity on the grounds that he was an
IRAC looking for a poll. But his story broke
down under questioning when he showed
signs of rudimentary intelligence.
ED. NOTE: Since this paper is read by
a few women, and a great many children,
we felt it our duty to omit the details of
how the spy was disposed of. We will mention, however, that he was often seen again
around the campus.
By this time the defenders had completely wiped out the attacking force at least
three times, but as they had only circumstantial evidence, such as a loose arm floating around here and there, they were forced
to continue the battle until someone told
them to stop. They contented themselves
with picking off a few spare officers at extreme ranges.
There is some doubt as to the outcome
of the battle. One faction maintains that
both sides decided to surrender at the same
time, while another group insists that they
were forced to desist because of a sudden
epidemic of malaria.
At any rate Union College is still standing. (Just a moment while I take a look).
Yes, Union College is still standing, so you
can draw your own conclusions.
Following the battle, both sides were
awarded the "Royal Order of the Pull
Through", otherwise known aa the "Order
of the Swearing Student", not to be confused
with the "Order of the Stupid Student",
which is granted only to Corporals.
Two well known military experts who
witnessed the battle were interviewed by
Ubyssey reporters.
The first, a tall, dark-haired captain, who
prefers to remain unidentified, was found
busily studying the data on the comparative
beaten zones of the snowball and the hand
full of orange peel.
On being asked his opinion of the battle
he stated, quote, (the editor-in-chief is a
lady, and anyway who cares what he said,
he's probably prejudiced), unquote.
The second expert, who we would prefer not to identify, also made a very interesting statement, but we do not wish to
print it as we are sure that the Social Problems Club (ED. NOTE: This is an organization which no longer exists on the campus,
having moved to the University of Vladivostok in the year 1950) will be asking him to
address them on the subject of "the evils
of Capitalism in the COTC" at some early
date.     •
ED. NOTE: This story was originally
considerably longer, but the remaining folios
were destroyed during the Doukabour uprising on the campus in 1963.
* on the
• TO anyone who managed to stumble through
the new University regulations, the fact that the latest
axe blow was drummed up
by University representatives must have been more
than obvious.
Student editorial writers all over
Canada have been busily pounding
away at the "unfair discrimination" of the Ottawa Oracles' decree, but have missed the pjtnt
that it ia actually a clever compromise.
Assuming that the Arts course
crisis fcad come to a head and a
^prpmise sw qecesaary, some
bright follow (bpd it so that an
Arts course is "essential" so long
as a student is pulling down
honor after honor.
This of course does not follow
logically, but it might be called
the "coup-de-grace" which saves
the Arts course from extinction.
The fellow who hasn't got much
brains, but is trying to absorb as
much knowledge as possible, can
look up at the axe and quiver with
good reason.
But ^ Universities still have
their Arts course.
Oet that fine point of distinction:
a good Artsman is essential to the
war effort. Ah, if only the great
satirists of tht ages were still
living—in Canada,
As a certain professor pointed
out, co-eds could band together,
decide to make only low marks,
and thus the government would
have a very red-face when it finds
that the fellow who hasn't got
much brains is still plugging away
at varsity.
Any co-ed interested in forming
"The Women's Society for the
Preservation of Brain-less Arts-
men" please see me in the Pub.
I'm worried.
t IT IS A PITY that our beautiful Friday editor took pity
on Messrs. Glover, Oulchon and
Patenaude and did not place their
council-be-praised letter of last
Friday on the front page.
It was as much news as the anti-council letters in that lt was
the first letter The Ubyssey has
received praising our council.
But if the letter had been assured of a wider audience it might
have been embarrassing not only
to the council publicity firm of
Glover, Guichon and Patenaude,
but also to the persecution-com-
plexed '43-'44 council.
The facts were just a bit distorted and contradictory.
Did) you know that council gave
us the Employment Bureau and is
giving us a free Totem? I understood that the Employment Bureau
wad in existence before this council. The Dirty Nine haven't informed the Publications Board as
yet that we are publishing a Totem.
Did you know that council has
paid more educational and athletic
travelling expenses this year? Yes,
we got our Inter-University Conference easily, didn't we?
Not only has council "made a
concentrated effort to cut down
overhead", but It also has ordered
a "free Totem", "free directory"
"paid more traveling expenses",
"supplied magazines and bought
records for the Brock" and "supported with financial aid our new
Our trio went overboard trying
to throw the laurel leaf to council.
No matter what criticism or
praise is levelled at this year's
council, the fact still remains that
the present dirty nine have not
done too badly.
In fact, they are way ahead of
other councils In some respects.
What irks me Is that this year's
council expects praise for their
good deeds and pouts when anyone criticises them,
It is up to the students to point
nut weaknesses in their council.
The Ubyssey is not the great judge
who solemnly enters on a ledger
the credits and debits of a council,
then labels it good, bad or what
have you.
The paper points out the mistakes and expects them not to
happen again. But they do, and
until the mistakes stop, an ideal
situation, council will be checked
at every step

The   Editor,   "Ubyssey,"
Dear Madam,
I shall suffer no longer. To say
the least, I was disgusted, upon
turning to the sport page of the
Friday, February 18 Issue of the
Ubyssey, at what I saw there.
Big as life, staring me In the
face, was, by measurement, 12
(thirty-two) square inches of
space taken up by the sports editor himself, to say precisely nothing. I refer to the article entitled
"Off the Cuff," which apparently
dealt with one "Tubby Welsford,"
and his recent visit to Varsity and
subsequent writing of a column
for our paper. From personal
acquaintance, I will admit that
"Tubby" is a nice fellow, and no
doubt deserves some mention in
the Ubyssey, but why spend a
quarter of a page saying nothing
about him,—or about anyjhjnjg

Alaska Road Valuable
To Canada, Editor Says
e IMPORTANCE of the Alaska
Highway as both a wartime
and a post-war Canadian development was outlined ln a speech
given to the Social Problems Club
Friday by Hal Griffin, editor of
2nd Pri-e
Here's the Jingle that won
the $15.00 merchandise certificate for Z. Adcock.
Now Willie's the fl»l
That the fellows all go for,
from Freddie, the frat tm*,
To Joe, the Caf Loafer,
She's right in the pMpe,
Man, she's hep to the jive,
With that extra something
That's really alive.
She says her clothes are
The neat little tricks,
That make her the queen
Of the super-cute chicks.
She gets them at .Willards,
They're  sharp   and   they're
That's 'why the fellows
All whistle Whee Whoo!
I'll bet that's Willie.
Z. Adcock was certainly
"hep to the jive" when she
wrote this one. Good work!
And don't be surprised if
you hear them say "I'll bet
that's Willie."
the "People", downtown labor
Mr. Griffin, whose book on the
Alaska Highway, "Our New Frontier—Alaska and the Canadian
Northwest", will be published at
the end of the month, said that
the Canadian Northwest can be a
self-sustaining unit with farms
and industries.
This could be made possible by
the richness of the land in the
growing season and the vast
forests, minerals and oil deposits,
he explained.
He stated that the myth of the
barrenness of the north was helped along by the CPR and Alaskan
Steamships and the Japanese, who
were the ones to profit if the road
was not built.
He stressed the potential military importance of the highway
in a giant pincers movement
against Japan. He also designated
it as a jumping off point for American and Canadian lend-lease
materials to Russia.
"Some officials in Ottawa," he
said, "believe it to be important
in a war with Russia in 20 or
25 years."

•   DOWNTOWN papers and conversation among the sports
people of Vancouver have been busy for the past week
over the recent baseball setup. Are we going to get the
brand of baseball we deserve up here?
One moment the sky looks very dark and the next moment there is nearly a rush on the box office for season
tickets. At the present time the things that have transpired
out of the jumbled communications and conferences seem to
be these,
Sacramento turned out to its baseball games last year
like Varsity students turned out to their games this year.
Therefore, Sam Breadon, owner of that club and St. Louis
Cards let it be known that he wished to move the club from
the California capital.
Some years ago now it was pointed out in Vancouver
that this city was large enough to house a Pacific Coast
League team. Therefore Bob Brown has been keeping his
interests very active around the PCL. The thing that threw
a jinx into the machine in the first place was that other
Vancouver interests wished to have the PCL represented in
this fair town also.
Vancouver was not the only city playing WIL ball that
wished to have PCL, and Spokane and Tacoma came into
the picture, Spokane soon bowed out, but Tacoma pulled
a fast move and bought the franchise from Sacramento, while
Vancouver interests were getting straightened out.
CPR, who owned Athletic Park, had sold the park when
Mr. Norgan went to buy it and hence purchase of the baseball team was delayed until the buyer was determined. In
this delay Tacoma bought the franchise.
Then it transpired that Emil Sick had bought the park
in the interests of Bob Brown and Tommy Turner. Next
dramatic move was the vote of the directors of the league to
refuse the movement of the franchise to Tacoma.
Now the stage is set like this in so many points. 1—
Sacramento is trying to raise enough money to buy the park
and franchise but is short about 50 thousand ducats.2—
Tacoma, is definitely out of the picture for the games to be
held in Tacoma. 3—Vancouver is working frantically to
move the franchise northward. 4—Tacoma can own the club
and play in Sacramento. 5—Tacoma can not own the club
and play it in Vancouver.
All depends on the big meeting in Los Angeles of the
directors of the PCL, and those interested in transferring
the franchise to a different field.
Telegrams have been pouring out of Vancouver from
schools, clubs and business interests for the past few days
in a desperate effort to swing the vote for the franchise move
to this city.
As long as we are on the subject of baseball we might
question the baseball activity on this campus. The playing
days are spent on holidays by most of the students, but
enough fellows get together to keep a cricket team together
during the summer. Would it be possible to get enough students interested in forming a team for one of the downtown
teams this summer?
•   THE   VARSITY  FROSH  basketball  team  makes  its
feature appearance of the year on the campus tomorrow
at noon when the First Year Hoopsters entertain the Senior
B crew from the No. 3 Repair Depot at the Jericho Beach
RCAF station.
They will also play another exhibition game against the
Tommy Tucker "Redhots" in the preliminary tilt at VAC
gym on Saturday night.
The Frosh Crew, which, after a «->--_-->->-_-__m-__-_-_---_-b
falrly successful season, were
nosed out of the play-offs by the
CYO Oaks, have been practicing
regularly under the direction of
their coach, Bruce York, in preparation for their two important
contests tlus week.
Since both of their opposing
trams are of Senior B calibre, the
Frosh outfit will have to work
hard to beat either of the teams.
The "Beachcombers" from No 3
RD. are tops for the Air Forco
teams of the lower mainland. The
Tommy Tucner "Redhots" have
one of the best Senior B squads
on Vancouver Island; they hail
from Victoria.
Coach Yorke will have the following cagers on hand for these
two events: Tom Anderson, Alan
MacDonald, Tom Abbott, Hubert
Gabrielse, Pidge McBride, Ernie
Renouf, Maurie Ingram, and Don
Charleston. Don Brown will be
unable to appear with his teammates in these games.
Golf Links
Tournament will be played off
soon on the University Golf Club
links and with the continuation of
the present f.iir weather there h
hound to be some very good
matches played.
The participants will consist of
two men from carli intramural
group who will compete with each
other in an 18 hole match.
It is expected that the Fraternities will capture this event as
they are all strongly represented.
The Fiji's will put up Andrew
Carmichael and Scott and the D.
U.'s J. P. McGeer, all of whom
will present some stiff competition
to the other competitors.

When the girls began the formation of their track club they had
no idea of dragging every girl on
the campus into their club. All
we want is to get the girls interested to turn out to train.
The freshettes are naturally the
ones whom we expected to respond to our call for tracksters
and the freshettes did respond,
but hearing rumors of our marvellous seniors and their high school
records we had hopes. I personally
think that the girls on this campus haven't enough backbone to
get behind anything which might
lead to work.
