A Canadian University
Press Feature
By NEIL MacDONALD
• SASKATOON: Perhaps it was
the conference of the Big
Three last week, perhaps it was
the realization that February is
half over and that the election is
getting closer, that brings this
problem up. The war is gating
finished and we may expect action on the fighting fronts to move
rapidly' to a climax; the government which will start Canada off
oh the ways of peace is going to
be elected shortly; the problem ls
"What are the young men and
women of this country going to
do about it?"
Particularly ln the thinking of
university students, there must be
an awareness of tne proDlems facing Canada and an attempt made
at their solution, if the students
are to offer anything constructive
towards the' development of a
peace which has some probability
of permanence, The responsibility
has been thrust upon young men
and women in the universities, because, although they have been
hampered by government restrictions and senseless controls, they
have been allowed to continue
their education in the comfort of
Canada. Their security has been
purchased by the blood of the
young men who have fought and
died.
I am now in the middle of a
business trip across Western Canada, where I have the opportunity
of meeting a large number of
young men and women from
farms, from business, and from
schools and universities. These
young people seem one and all to
have realized the problem which
they face: how to make the voice
of youth count in the period of
reconstruction.
But while the problem Is evident, the answer is not so easily apparent.   Where can  the
young men and women And an
outlet for their Ideals, an outlet
where they can put the energy
of youth to useful work?
One answer alone exists:  political action.   It Is not enough for
young people  to stand aside and
criticize  negatively  the  deeds of
any   political   party,    It   is   not
enough   to  crltlclzs   destructively
the Liberals, the Progressive Conservatives, the  Cooperative Commonwealth Federation, or the Labor  Progressives.   The  action by
young   people   must   be   towards
the   positive   Implementation    of
their own high ideals, and this Implementation must be in the political sphere.
Take the House of Commons.
The average age of members there
is close to 60. No one that year
of age has the ideals of 25, or the
dynamic energy to see those ideals
put into effect.
I would like to see all three major political parties so dominated
by young people that they would
truly represent tha Ideals of young
men and women and honestly
seek after their energetic fulfilment. If we can gat that kind of
domination we will see a complete rejuvenation of the Canadian
political scene.
And that change will only come
when every young Canadian is
ready to take his active part In
Canadian  politics.

expansion of the university, under the government's
$5,000,000 grant, have been
prepared and are ready to
be put into effect as soon as
possible by a combined
board of governors and senate committee under Dean
Daniel Buchanan.
The committee, formed last
March 24, has been working on
the plans since that date and has
compiled a tentative report stating
in detail the improvements needed
for UBC.
It is not known when the plans
can be put into operation because
of technical difficulties arising
from war conditions. The committee's plans include provision for
new faculties, new buildings and
additions to present facilities.
PRELIMINARY WORK DONE
Members of the committee include: Dean Buchanan, chairman;
Dean J. N. Finlayson, Dean F. M.
Clement, F. J. Burd, A. R. Lord,

Walker. President Norman Mac-
Kenie is a member ex-officio.
Preliminary work on the plans
was done during the spring and
summer, and on the arrival of Dr.
MacKenzie in August, several additional meetings were held arid
the tentative report compiled. The
request to the government was

Bruce Yorke
Presents Plan
To Revision Body
• BRUCE YORKE again presented a resume of his plan for
student government at the Monday open meeting of the Student
Government Revision Board.
In his scheme, the Students'
CouncU might be called the Policy
Council since it would consist in
theory of a president, secretary,
treasurer, editor-ex-offlclo, and,
representatives of five separate
autonomous bodies.
LSE, MAA, WAA, Social Directorate, and Undergraduate Directorate would have almost complete control of their own finances, with the AMS treasurer acting
as a final check.
Discussion continued about the
idea of an Advisory Council and
about an adequate replacement
for the position of MUS.
Classics Presented
In Brock Hall
m
• A PROGRAM of classical mu.
sic of the earlier centuries will
be presented in the men's smoking
room in Brock Hall tomorrow
noon. Members of the new University symphonic appreciation
group are urged to attend.
FACULTY AND STUDENTS USE FICTION SHELF
• FIFTY volumes compose the
Library fiction bookshelf at
present. This number Is expected
to be increased to around 100 volumes in the near future.
The wide variety cantains several non-fiction books of more
modern vintage. Included are
Travel, Biographies, Detective novels, and some of the better books
that are currently selling.
Surprisingly enough to the Library staff as many of these books
in the fiction shelf are read by
members of the Faculty as are
read by the students themselves.
Rental charges are five cents for
the first day and three cents for
each succeeding day.
It is expected by the Library
staff that these fiction books will
soon pay for themselves and when
their demand decreases they will
be replaced by currently popular
books.
Thus the fiction shelf will be of
a revolving nature; as fast as
books decrease In demand they
will be replaced. The number on
the shelf will remain in the neighborhood of 100 volumes.
Water Fights, Bull Sessions Liven Co-op Life
By BRUCE BEWELL
•   CO-OPS ARE interesting places.   Here, more than in
most other student dwellings around UBC, the good old-
fashioned bull session is one of the favourite indoor sports.
Any evening after the boys have
decided that they have done *
"reasonable amount" of studying
they gather in the kitchen or a-
round some other source of food
and talk. After th? usual opening
topic accompanied by exchange of
phone numbers and other pertinent data the conversation turns
to past events that have become
legendary.
They discuss the last good fij'ht
out in the yard, which probably
started when some practical jester turned the stirrup pump on an
innocent co-oper enjoying a hot
shower.  The details of each fracas
vary, but the ending is always the
some.
NO CAMPUS COPS
The somewhat chilled bather e-
' merges and picks a team while the
joker does likewise. They then
collect all the pumps In the vicinity, retire to the yard, and set to
with a will. It is much more fun
than a Science-Arts fight, because
as long as the belligerents keep
their activities outside there is no
discipline committee to spoil the
party.
Occasionally one of the boys
will precipitate a battle of wits,
or more accurately speaking, a
battle  of  half-wits.   Score   Is
kept on a blackboard.  At the
beginning of the week everybody   starts   from   zero   and
points are added or subtracted
depending on whether or not
thc rest of the boys think the
crack is up to standard
If the ad libs fall into the strictly   from   hunger   class   a   unique
ceremony  takes  place.   It   is the
famous "six-lncher," a blow delivered to the shoulder of the punster
from a distance of one handspan,
theoretically    six    inches,     Some
times a double six-incher, or simultaneous blows on each shoulder,
is called for. So the offender cannot write for a'week.  So what?
The co-op lady killer is a dapper
pre-med who spends more time on
the phone than on his books. Although officially phone time is
strictly rationed, this young romeo
goes around buying up fhe bookworms' time. After all, how can
he keep all his admirers happy if
he can only use the phone fifteen
minutes each night?
Birthdays are great days at
the  house  as custom  decrees
that anyone celebrating the anniversary of his arrival on this
troubled sphere must purchase
ice cream all round.   This ls
why there Is always great Interest    In    birthdays,    both
twenty-first and otherwise.
Once one of the birthday oele-
brators treated himself to a genuine   two-for-a-nickel   cigar.    He
was given an ultimatum to either
get rid of that adjective thing, or
move out. He did neither, and on
returning from a show later that
evening he discovered a large
empty space in his room where his
bed normally stood. An intensive
search revealed the missing piece
of furniture made up in tne yard,
complete with sheets, blankets,
corn flakes and kindling. He now
smokes cigarettes.
Some of the more daring boys
who are anxious to cash in on
their accident insurance policies
indulge in a novel card game
called "Scram," which is exactly
what any intelligent person does
when the gam© is suggested. The
rules are simple. It is just like
multiple solitaire, but with  brass
knuckles. To the casual observer
it would seem that the object of
the game is for each player to
maim as many of his opponents
as, possible. While this is not
strictly the case, it is true that
the player able to walk away unaided is proclaimed the winner.
LAUNDRY CAUSES SCRAMBLE
The big moment of the week is
the return of the laundry. Here
also the sporting blood of the coopers manifests Itself. The parcels are placed on a stout table,
the boys line up against the opposite wall, and at a given signal
descend on the pile. The only
reason that tht smallest member
gets his own clothes back is that
they won't fit anyone else. I know. EDITORIAL PAGE
THE UBYSSEY
FEBRUARY 20, 194S
Students and Liquor
One of the first things a university student must meet up with and conquer when
he first enters the campus scene is a subject
quite taboo in this province, the liquor problem. No matter how much we try to hide
the subject behind curtains of regulations,
it is always there to confront us.
Every young person must come across
it sooner or later. Youth meets it usually
on first leaving hails of high school and coming into contact with older people. The
young person must meet this problem and
defeat it, or it will defeat him. In B.C. we
handle the problem very pitifully.
We lack an intelligent approach to the
liquor question. We sanction the use of
liquor and apply restrictions to its use. But
we apply the restrictions which produce the
natural greediness of human beings for
scarce, rare commodities. It is hard to get,
but we can get it; and when we do get it
we make good use of it.
The great amount of drunkeness in
Vancouver can be attributed to this fact. In
provinces where liquor is abundant the
number of intoxicated persons is less. The
people know they can get liquor any time
they like and therefore do not go "hog wild"
for it as the little Vancouver man does when
the vendor hands him his precious month's
ration. It's just like saving a gas coupon
for some event and then splurging all three
gallons of the wonderful red fluid on a long
drive.
At eastern universities thereare taverns
and bars across the street from the le^^lre
halls. This does not produce the wild drink*,
ing parties, but a sane and ratibnal way of
drinking for those who must drink. It is
the intelligent view to take towards liquor,
sometimes referred to as the "gentleman's"
view. The students learn to drink. Because
it is plentiful they can take it or'leave it
without concern.
Some UBC students are no different
than any other young people in Vancouver
who must combat the psychological urge to
drink. Thinking it is the smart thing to do,
they drink. Once started, they are caught
up in the Liquor Control Board's cycle of
hoard and splurge.
We are not so intolerant or hypocritical
to suggest that students stop drinking. What
we urge is that both the younger and older
students take an intelligent attitude toward
liquor. We can, and should, realize why we
drink. We should impress upon those who
are new to university life that drinking is
not a prerequisite for a successful social
'life. There is nothing smart about being
drunk. There is nothing "big time" about
taking a drink. You are perhaps more the
B.T.O. if you can refuse a drink because you
don't like the taste of the stuff. But the
student who wants to drink, should learn
to drink in moderation, and he will have an
asset of value for the rest of his life.
The Cairn Ceremony
Student Council, with a rather facetious
air, decided that perhaps it might be a good
thirig after all to hold a Cairn Ceremony this
year. In an off-hand manner it was added to
the agenda of a recent council meeting.
Council and The Ubyssey have often
divided on the question of the Cairn Ceremony. We have taken the attitude that the
Cairn Ceremony is something that all students should experience. It is a reminder
to Dresent-day students of the many sacrifices made in the past by UBC students for
the improvement of their university.  This
spirit must be kept alive.  There are still
many things to be done on this campus.
Council has often criticized the student
body for its apathetic attitude toward this
simple ceremony. But more than once has
that attitude seeped from the inner sanctum
of student government, the Student Council
room. Our ceremony this year will probably
not be as elaborate as last year's lavish military celebration. It has always been the
simplicity of the ceremony, however, that
has made it one of the most striking of UBC
traditions.
Social Work and the Community
One of the many departments of this
university which has been serving the community well for many years is social service.
The public, and a good many students, hear
very little of the men and women who are
preparing themselves for work among the
more unfortunate of our fellows.
They perform a very necessary function
in life today. Often ill-paid, the social worker of today is a highly trained specialist who
spends a good deal of time learning the
science of his work. Many people have the
mistaken idea that a social worker is just
an old busy-body, poking his nose into
shady and immoral dives, only to shake his
finger and shame the object of his search.
But the type of 'social worker being
turned out by this university is very different than this stereotyped version of nineteenth century reformers. Serious and determined, the UBC social worker might be
a gay fraternity man off duty, or a cosmopolitan co-ed with a good sense of humor.
The frank advice they offer, the facilities they open up for those who need help
constitute a service to the community which
can't be measured in terms of 'money, but
in individuals living happily what otherwise
might have been a hard life. Those who receive aid from social service do not look
upon it as shameful. They give grateful
thanks. And sometimes the thanks are all
the social worker receives for his trouble.
•in all seriousness   Bydenisblunden
• EVERYBODY has to stick their neck
out once a year, even if it's just for the
exercise. The topic for today promises a lot
of exercise—it is "Women in Business", or
♦'The Undeclared Third World War".
The presentation of two
topics is not a feeble attempt
at humor. It is a truthful
presentation, for whenever
two women are present in a
business office for more than
five minutes, undeclared war
is one of the results.
Think back, if you can,
to restaurants or coffee shops
you have eaten in where the
help was composed of the
feminine sex. If yoii were neatly dressed,
closely shaved, acted like an 18th century
gentleman, and smiled like a toothpaste advertisement, you were served promptly and
efficiently. If you were a normal, hard
working citizen with yesterday's shirt on,
the merest suggestion of a beard, and were
too tired to grin and bellow "thank you"
every time the waitress brought a toothpick,
then you probably waited so long for your
luncheon that it was time to have a full
course dinner, which you would get in time
for breakfast.
Being partial in business is one of the
worst drawbacks of women. Secretaries in
business offices make the nondescript characters wait, let the pleasing personalities in.
Women store clerks give the chocolate bars
and Exports to lucky men who have a left
ear like Van Johnson's.
Added to this biased, personal attitude
is the undeclared war between women in
business. Once again, waitresses are the
chief offenders. Hungry clients can sit and
starve while the waitresses argue who is
going to take the night shift next week, who
is waiting on the third table from the left
near the South wall, and who ordered that
roast beef first.
When a man is a waiter you get your
food as quickly as the next fellow. When
a man is a secretary you may still have difficulty in gaining entrance, but you can
stand up and argue the matter out sensibly.
The place for a woman, more than ever
before, is in the home, where she can give
vent to her petty grievances on the Fuller
brush man. There are some women, it is
true who can go into business and be successful, but in so doing they relinquish all
claim to being an ordinary woman. Women
by nature are not fitted for today's business
life. They clog up the .wheels of industry
with petty buffoonery. When questioned
about their adaptability to a man's business
world they point to women M.L.A's and
powder-puff executives who really are not
women at all—but men in women's clothing,
which is the unkindest cut of all.
Go ahead and write letters to the editor,
girls. Rant and rave about a new world
where women are not discriminated against.
Give expression to your growing pains. But
remember that when the emancipation of
women is finally realized, women the world
over will fall over themselves trying to get
back into the home.
LETTERS TO
THE EDITOR-
The Editor,
The Ubessey,
Dear Sir:
I like the Ubyssey when its misquotations are its own. They have
the refreshing originality of fantasy. Why, then, quote the mis-
qotes of others?
I am a little, just a little, weary
of being held the sire of that verbal illegitamacy "students in the
mass are unltelllgent." When I
was charged with the terrible
blunder of fathering this dictum,
I held my peace. Had I been
charged with eating babies for
breakfast, I would likewise have
kept silent But when the Ubyssey lends the phrase the dignity
of editorial comment. I must object. Give Mr. Mills the credit
for the remark If you wish; I
don't want it.
Very truly yours,
Dick Bibbs.
EDITOR'S NOTE: All self-respecting ogres have their funny
little habits. We are particularly
fond of bludgeoning woolly, white
lambs and drownln sweet, brown
puppy dogs in addition to quoting
the misquotes of others. Our dignified editorials, however, cannot
—nay—they could not, sanction
babies for breakfast. It's too early
hi the morning. Maybe for lunch,
Mountford?
The Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Let it not be thought that I have
neglected to answer Mr. Johnson
through cowardice or faint heart-
edness. Such is not the case. An
Illness of an hereditary nature
fell upon me this past week, and
forced me to retire to Harrison for
a number of days to take the waters, but now that my health is
restored, I take pen in hand to
answer the damnable charges set
forth by Mr. Johnson.
I wish to assert foremost that I
have not as yet had the pleasure
to read an article by Mr. Addison
(as I stated in my letter), and 11
Mr. Johnson wishes to construe
from this that ho and his work are
unknown to mo, he errs. Indeed,
I have seen references to him and
to his "Spectator," but 1 have read
none of it. If this is a sin, then I
confess to it, but is not this vice
widespread? I have found that although many students are aware
that Mr. Gibbon has written the
"Decline and Fall of the Roman
Empire," or that Mr. Richardson
has written "Clarissa Harlowe,"
there Is scarce one of them who
has read either of these very excellent works.
In conclusion let me inform Mr.
Johnson that If he wishes to present me with a copy of Mr. Addison's works, he is at liberty to
seek me out in the alcove at Underbill's in the forenoon, or at the
Willow Tea Pot in the afternoons.
In the evening, I am very often at
the theatre, and I would be blessed to have Mr. Addison and Mr.
Johnson as my guests on one of
these occasions.
I salute you, sh*, for obliging
me with this space hi your estimable publication.

I THE PRESENTATION thi
week by the Vancouver Littia
Theatre Association of George
Bernard Shaw's classic satire "Pyg-
ma'.lon" was enthusiastically received by sell-out thsatre audiences. Shavian wit and pathos were
ably poitrayed by a well-costumed
cast whose performances completely satisfied the exacting roles of
th}s sparkling play. Under the expert direction of Christine Chanter and the more than competent
players, this play should make the
Association feel very pleased at
one of its better successes of recent seasons.
SUCCESS ASSURED
The scintillating second and
third acts assured success after a
slow beginning. Mr. Sam Payna
as Henry Hlggins, the professor of
phonetics, and Maureen Ellis as
Eliza Doolittle carried the play
professionally through to their
last dramatic scene. Mr. Payne's
performance at all times showed
keen insight, even relative brilliance.
Co - starring with this well -
known Vancouver actor in the famous part of the Cockney flower-
girl turned into a "Duchess," the
popular Miss Ellis gave a lively
interpretation, if not as finished

CUP feature
Queen'i C«m|M!f Pol!
Conducted by Jim Southey
•   IF QUEEN'S students were given the chance to elect Canada's House
of Commons in the near future, the present Liberal government would
be returned by a slight plurality, according to a recent Journal Institute
of Student Opinion survey.
One hundred student were asked the following question, with the
results as shown:
If a general federal election were to be held In the immediate future,
and you were going to vote, which party would you support:
Liberal _ ^%
Progressive-Conservative  28%
Co-operative Commonwealth Federation  23%
Others  3%
Undecided   i^%
100%
The students, who indicated that they would support the Liberal
party, did so for the most part on the grounds that this is no tune in
the history of Canada to change our government They said that the
Liberals are the only party which can preserve national unity, and that
the solution to current problems which they offer is better than that of
any other party. They also asserted that Mackenzie King is the 00$
Canadian statesman properly prepared to represent us at the future
peace conference. They justified his conscription policy by declaring that
any other form of action, or inaction, would have brought on revolution.
The Liberals are the only party fit to cany on a war, they believe.
CAUSED DISUNITY
Those wfco pledged support of the Progressive-Conservatives took
the opposite view of Mackenzie King's record as prime minister. They
declared that he, more than any other man, has caused a lack of unity
within Canada by his "constant catering to the 65 Quebec votes ever
since the last war," particularly over the conscription issue. He sowed
the seeds of last fall's parliamentary crisis back in the early 1920's. They
stated they have watched the Liberals stay in power long enough because of the "sly practical politics, and irresolute fence-sitting" of their
leader, and that now is a good tune as any to sweep them out of office
and put in a party with a leader who is not afraid to make decisions and
act upon them. These students want a change but do not wish to put
a party as radical as the CCF into power. Several indicated that they
felt Bracken would give the farmer a fair deal, but the ever-present
reason given was to get Prime Minister King out of office.
The bukers of the CCF maintained that this party is the only one
with a constructive policy. They would like to see these new proposals
tried out, and, even if the CCF were nOt able to gain a plurality, would
like to seo it given the opportunity to provide a little "enlightened"
opposition. They argued that the Liberal government is not moving fast
enough towards the nationalization of industry, a step which is necessary
if we are going to avert a disastrous depression within the next ten years
or so.
Some students were undecided as to how they would vote because
they felt that they do not know enough about the Canadian political
picture. Others stated that they would not be able to decide until
candidates were announced, and the parties had made their final platforms
public.

KErrisdale 1811. A FIREMAN'S JOBMSN'T SO    SPC Discusses Full
HOT: WORK A 60 HOUR WEEK  Employment in Canada
THE UBYSSEY, FEBRUARY 20, 1945 — Page Three
By HARRY ALLEN
•   THE OTHER day I received a directive from my Senior
Editor. The directive told me that I should go over to
the fire-hall on the campus and find out what kept the boys
there awake and to see if there have been any serious fires
on the campus. __________»__—_
The fire hall, as you will see by '
•   FULL EMPLOYMENT and its implications were discussed by the Social Problems Club Monday in Arts 100.
Although  no  definite  decisions ■
the map in your university calendar, is located near the workshops
and the powerhouse, which are in
the area where the red-sweater
men receive Instruction on how to
build bridges, etc. The calendar
also shows that the fire-hall is a
permanent building.
Some people think that all the
fireman does is to become • perfectionist at the game of crlbbage.
I soon found out that the fireman
works. 	
WORK 60-HOUR WEEK
The 8 firemen in the University
Fire   Department   work   a  sixty
hour week, and every other Sunday  they  work  24 hours.   Our
flame   dousers   have   a   definite
schedule as to what they have to
do during the week. They polish
the brass, floors, clean the kitchen
and play crlbbage.   In addition,
after every fbe the fire hoses and
the fire truck equipment has to
be cleaned. Once a month all the
hydrants   on   the   campus   are
.   checked and the fire apparatus in
every building is inspected.
On one inspection trip, a fire
extinguisher In the gym was
found to have been punctured
by a "would-be" female archer.
The university fire department
has one fire truck that will do up
to 75 miles an hour. It is a twelve
cylinder model.   The campus department   works 'in   conjunction
with University Endowment Lands
Fire Department.
*■■■> •     All the firemen In the force have
cottages   near, the   endowment$
lands fire-hall and therefore are
always ready for an emergency.
TOWER DRIES HOSE
Gazing about the hall I discovered the reason why all fire halls
have a miniature tower. Thut is
required hi order to dry hoses after they are washed.
It may be interesting to note also that the fire hall has cots and
a kitchen. There is also the proverbial brass pole which the men
slide down to the floor where the
truck is.
The worst fire that the University fire department has answered
In recent months was a fire which
did $6,000 damage to a house. The
worst one that has happened on
the campus was one that happened
a number of years ago In the Science Building. The last fire on
the campus also was a small one
ln the Science Building which was
put out before the red truck arrived.
BUSY WITH BUSH FIRES
There are lots of small fires on
the campus In which very little
"damage is done. An example is
the fire that burned a chesterfield
in the Brock a couple of weeks
ago.
During the summer the fire
department is kept busy with
bush fires.  There are numerous small bush fires which occur on the average of two or
-••    three  a   day.   The  fire-truck
carries an Inhalator since there
is a bathing beach nearby.
During the last rain storm two
fire-trucks were used to pump out
water as a result of tha floods.
Every time that there Is a
meeting in the auditorium there
is a fireman on duty to prevent
overcrowding and smoking. The
firemen find that,the students are
very cooperative when told to
put out their smokes.
The fire-hall is the place to go
at night if you need first-aid. Although you should go to the
health-service during the day* you
can get aid from the lire department, which reminds me that I
had better stop writing or my
senior editor is going to be sending me down to the hall for more
than just a match.
Allergic to Khaki
Gets Civvies Back
• CAMP MAXEY, Tenn. (UP)-
Being allergic to wearing khaki changed Pvt. Albert L. Van
Derscheuren from soldier to civilian, but it did not change the
Army's uniform.
Whenever Pvt. Van Derscheuren
wore khaki a rash developed on
his body. The Army, after consulting medhrffi authorities, decided that it would be cheaper to
dispense with his services than to
order uniforms of another shade
and texture. So Van Derscheuren
is out and khaki is still in.
So-Ed Program
Offers Study,
Entertainment
• THE SPRING session of
the YMCA's So-Ed program gets under way on
February 28 with studies of
the "Big Three" and liberated countries as well as a new
qourse on Racism in Canada
today under the leadership
of John Gibbard entitled
"Minority Problems."
Customary ln the So-Ed sessions
is the combination of both study
and recreation. This year, apart
from the last portion of the night
given over to a dance for the 200
men and women members, there
will be instructional classes ln
ballroom, rhumba and old tune
dancing.
REGISTER EARLY
Archery, photography, and music appreciation are three of the
most popular activities during the
centre portion of the evening's
program.       *
Journalism  will  be  a  new
feature In this year's session
when  the  student  class  will
gather, edit and publish the
nights happenings at each So-
Ed, Wednesday night.
Initiation   night,   February   28,
will be the "partytime," when So-
Ed members will dance and witness a special floor-show presented by professional talent. Registrants are requested to contact the
Vancouver YMCA, Pa. 022L for an
application.
Each session a number of students have been disappointed in
finding some subject or activity
filled up before they register, so
get your application in early to
ensure you are accepted in your
first choice. ,
OTTAWA CALUNG-
(Continued From Page 1)
• PREMIER  Maurice   Duplesais
of  Quebec  has  served  notice
on Prime Minister King that he is
not prepared to accept the system
of Family Allowances as planned
by the Dominion Government.
Probably for different reasons, he
feels with Premier Drew of Ontario that the measure as It stands
U an Infringement of provincial
rights in the matter of social services.
The opposition which the Department of Health and Welfare
is meeting from certain provincial
governments is nothing, however,
compared to the problems it is
discovering in setting up its "typical" provincial headquarters in
Charlottetown.
BIRTHDATE IMPORTANT
Here, officials have already discovered, many children's births
have never been registered, and
there is the fuss and confusion of
trying to prove the children's eligibility for the money at this late
date. Since the Allowances go on
a sliding scale, according to age,
the date of birth is important, and
is difficult to prove.
Which all goes to indicate that
the Department of National Health
and Welfare is not gomg to be
able to have the cheques ready
for distribution by July 1, 1945,
as planned in the act.
Winnie's Witticisms
Add One On Church
• LONDON   (UP)-The   collection of "Winston's Witticisms"
continues to grow. A gossip columnist for the newspaper "News
of the World" described this as
the latest Churchill story:
A friend recently chided Churchill for not attending church
more often. Churchill suggested
that his heavy duties offered some
excuse for his Irregular attndance.
",Yes" persisted the friend, "but
do you support the Church of
England?"
"I do," replied Churchill. "Like'
a buttress—from the outside."
could be reached, the SPC feels
that it now has a broader understanding of the difficulties facing
Canada.
They pointed out that In 1929 the
number of people employed in
Canada rose to 3.7 million, a maximum until this war. In 1933 the
number sank to a minimum of
3.1 million. At the present tuns
there are about 4.3 million men
and women In civilian jobs and
.7 million ln the armed forces.
This means that an unprecedented total of 5 million Canadians
are gainfully employed.
When the war is over Canada
will need about 4.7 million jobs
in order to gain what is technically known as full employment.
This is just one million more Jobs
than in the boom year of 1929.
Their provision is a tremendous
problem, and planning for them
will require the interest and aid
of every Canadian, aooordlng to
the SPC.

LIMITED THUNDERBIRD XV NABS McKECHNIE CUP
the gospel
according to
LUKE MOYLS
• UBC still manages to keep its
head up in sports circles in
spite of the many casualties inflicted on its team rosters. Weekend results prove this point. For
the first time in eight years, the
Blue and Gold rugby team captured the McKechnie Cup.
This year's
fine crop of
Thund e r b 1 r d
punters have
worked hard
under coach
Dan Doswell
and d e se r v e
plenty of praise
for their efforts.
Besides winning
the famed provincial trophy,
the Varsity
squad have already taken the Miller Cup and a»e well on their way
to cornering the Tisdall silverware.
If the Blue and Gold comes
through with all three trophies, it
will be the first time in the history
of UBC English Rugby teams.
Congrats are also In order for.
Art Johnson and his UBC Chiefs,
the astounding Intermediate A
basketball team which is made up
almost completely of freshmen.
Only upperclassman on the quintet
is Bruce Yorke, former playing
coach, who is now the playmaklng
floor captain.
The Big Chiefs showed up
Lauries Pie-Rates and had plenty
of energy to spare when they finally managed to take the two-point
decision in overtime. •
Not only are the Chiefs still In
the fight for the Senior A city
championship, they are also tied
up with Higbies in the. battle for
the Inter A crown.
This week looks rather gloomy
for the Chiefs, however, what with
two playdowns to complete. They
meet Higbies in the third game of
the Inter A series tonight, and
will probably meet Lauries in the
third game of the Senior A semifinal tomorrow night.
The Chiefs still have a chance of
beating the favored Pie-Rate crew,
and if they do, the Students will
really be in solid for senior hoop
laurels. That would mean that
the Chiefs would meet Varsity
Thunderbirds for the Vancouver
title.
So you can see this is a year for
picking off the silverware. Varsity
has sent many fine teams to battle
this year in all sports, and now we
are beginning to see the fruits of
our athletes' efforts.
Playoff time is here. This is the
time for great struggles for the
various cups and trophies. It's also
time for Varsity students to get
behind their teams and give them
their support. It's not enough to
get the old slap on the back. Our
players want to see some fans to
cheer them.
How about you?. Are you doing
anything tonight. You are?. What
—you're going down to see both
the Thunderbugs and the Chiefs in
action at King Edward Gym. Glad
to hear it.  See you there, chum.

Chiefs Tie Cage
Series With Win
Over Pie-Rates
By LAURIE DYER
• NEVER LET it be said that
UBC Chiefs are not determined
to take all the hoop glory there is
for them to take. Saturday night,
the Students won their hardest
game of the year when they defeated Lauries Pie-Rates in the
second game of the Senior A semifinals to tie the count at one game
apiece. The score was 50-48.
With three of the Chiefs' stars
sitting on the bench after partaking in the close-checking se^ion a
little too strenuously for the desires of the referees, the second
string took the floor in the overtime canto to take the game from
the favored Pirates in a rather
definite manner.
CAPOZZI HURT
The tilt was a thriller all the
way. Checking was hard, and play
. fast and deliberate for the whole
forty-five minutes of play. The
Chiefs started out right from the
opening whistle to build up a 13-9
lead at the quarter mark. Scoring
was on a more even basis throughout the second canto as both teams
scored 11 points.
Going into the third quarter
with a 24-20 bulge, the first of
a series of bad breaks came In
the path of the Chiefs when
big Herb Capozrl strained his
ankle and had to be taped up
for the remainder of the game.
The team's spirit was not to be
broken that easily, however, for
the Blue and Gold came back in
to build up a 41-33 lead as all five
found the hoop again as they did
in' the first period.
BILL TIES TILT
The flnal canto was very nearly
the undoing of the Chiefs however
as the Pie-Rates came back with
a vengeance. Bob*Haas was the
second casualty as he had to leav?
the floor on fouls near the beginning of the quarter.
«
With . the  score standing  at
45-42  for   UBC,  Bruce  Yorke
drew his fifth foul as he tried
to stop BUI Anderson who was
away on a break. BUI sank the
shot and with but two seconds
to go, swished the tying basket
—calamity number four.
Ian Blake, who replaced Yorke
in the overtime stretch, sank the
first shot.  The Varsity fans nearly
went mad as he sank a push shot
from the side.   Fred Bossons who
was high scorer for the night with
14 points, sank another push shot
a minute later after Jerry Stevenson had sunk a free shot to give
the Chiefs a five-point lead.
BLACK FUTURE
Ken Lawn kept the Pirates in
the flght, potting a gift throw and
a pivot shot to make the score
50-48. The Crafty pivotman of the
Laurie squad netted 17 points during the event.
The Chiefs now find themselves faced with the blackest
week they have yet had to
face. - On Tuesday night at
King Ed, thc Blue and Gold
meets Higbies In the third tilt
of the Inter A finals. As this
Is a best-of-five series, they
might be asked to play again
on Thursday.
The Senior A series is now fixed
at one game apiece and there is a
chance that the third game of the
best-of-three semis might have to
be played on Wednesday. This
would be rather hard on any club
and so the boys are hoping for
some different arrangement.
UBC CHIEFS - Capozzi 11, Haas
4, Bossons 14, Stevenson 11, Yorke

50.
LAURIES — Anderson 12, Freeman 6, McDonald 8, Lawn 17, Pratt

Knots Brits Grass
Hockey Squad, l-l
• VARSITYS senior grass hockey squad tied their game 1-1
en Saturday when they played the
sturdy Britannia team that gave
our Freshette team such a Deatlng
last week.
Britannia drew first blood at the
start of the game,  but spent the
rest of the half busily defending
their own goal area.   Aroused by
the Brit's  counter,  the  Blue and
Gold started  clicking and Marge
Watt showed her old form to flick
the ball past defence players for
the last tally of the game.
The second half was fairly
even with the ball see-sawing
back  and  forth  between  the
two goals. Varsity nearly broke
the tie on several attempts, but
never quite managed to get the
ball ln.
The Freshette team took their
game the easy way Saturday when
the Pro-Rec aggregation defaulted
in their favour.
Football Star Helps

football team to its 1944 Big Ten
championship, also has winning

An eight-year-old boy was

His football idol—Horvath—solved the problem. Horvath held
the wide-eyed youth's hand, and
the anesthetic easily was administered.

Yards To Score Winning Try
By FRED CROMBIE
• FIGHTING AN uphill struggle from the opening whistle,
Varsity Thunderbirds staggered to a hard-fought 9-6 victory over Victoria Crimson Tide Saturday in the Capital to
win the highly-prized McKechnie Cup for the first time since
1937.
'BUGS, IRISH

Pete McGeer's outfit meets another College outfit, the Fighting
Irish of Vancouver College, In the
finals of the Intermediate B Memorial Cup series starting tonight.
The finals will be played as a
two-game total point series, with
the two clubs clashing tonight and
Thursday.
Both clubs play the same style

Habitants Plough
Onward; Counter
Three More Points
• ONCE  AGAIN the  Montreal
Canadiens   came   through   a
busy weekend of hockey, to add
three more points to their league-
leading score. The Habitants took
a very close decision over the Toronto Maple Leafs Saturday night
by a score of 4-3, and battled the
Chicago Black Hawks to a 0-0
draw on Sunday.
Meanwhile Boston Bruins set the
Rangers back on Saturday by a
count of 6-1. The Manhattans
gained revenge Sunday night by
downing the Beantowners 2-1. Detroit Red Wings defeated Toronto
6-1 on Sunday night to give Toronto their second defeat of the
week end.
Highlight of the weekend came
In Toronto Saturday night when
Maurice "Rocket" Richard scored
his 44th goal of the season to hang
up a new scoring record.
Navy Defeats UBC
In Soccer Battle
• SATURDAY, on a beautiful
day and a perfect soccer field,
the UBC boys lost 5-2 to a powerful Navy eleven on the upper field.
HMCS Discovery's two veterans,
Don Matheson and Len Coombes,
sparked the Tars through brilliant
passing plays, and scored a goal
each in the first half to give the
Navy a 2-0 lead.
In the second half, the wind
subsided and the teams got
down to business. UBC's hardworking, fullback, Con Miller,
scored on a penalty shot. Ken
Medland scored again for UBC
while Len Coombes Johnny
MacMillan, and Dick Cameron
retaliated for Navy.
The final score stood at Navy 5,
UBC 2.
UBC's half-line of Hal Daykin,
Maury Isenor, and Hec Rossetti
clicked well, and the forwards
showed the old fire.
UBC gets a rest next Saturday
while their Varsity brothers entertain Coquitlam on the Upper Field
at 2:30. The team practises Wednesday at 12:30 on the Upper Field.

Mr. Jones (on phone) — Hello?
Dr. Smith? My wife has Just dislocated her jaw. If you should
b^ in the neighbourhood In the
next couple of weeks or so maybe
you'd drop in and have a look at
her?"
When blond Bob Croll, star
freshman halfback, raced 50 yards
to a try on sheer determination
alone to break a 6-6 deadlock with
five minutes to go, Varsity rooters
went almost mad with excitement.
TIDE SCORES FIRST
Taking the ball out of a set
scrum in mid-field, Croll smashed
through Victoria's defending back-
iielders in sensational style, eluded
many would-be tacklers just before going over for the game's
winning points.
From this point the collegiates
surged into the fray with added
vigour and were threatening seriously as time ran out.
Victoria opened the scoring
In the first minute of play
when they were handed one of
a multitude of penalty kicks
and their star kicker, Jack
Orogan, split the uprights from
very close range to give the
Tide the initial edge.
However, the Thunderbirds were
razor sharp and rolled down the
field immediately, not stopping until Tom McCusker, high-scoring
wingback, touched the ball to the
turf to knot the count.
KABUSH MISSES
Jack McKercher started the play,
popping a kick to the Reds' 15 and
the forwards, led by Joe Pegues,
recovered possession and dribbled
the pigskin into the end zone to
set up the play for the high-flying
McCusker.   Croll missed the convert to leave the score at 3-3.
The first half ended with no
further scoring although Harry
Kabush had a chance to put
the Blue and Gold ahead when
Varalty was  awarded  a  free
kick but his well-aimed kick
swerved at the last moment.
Upon   resumption   of  hostilities,
there began a procession of penalty
kicks, which slowed the game almost to a standstill.  No less than
22 such free kicks were awarded
against   the   Thunderbirds,    thus
probably constituting a new record
for McKechnie Cup competition.
At times the Birds, including
coach Dan DosweiL became so irritated that only a superhuman
effort, on their part, kept them
from declaring open warfare on
the referee. *

garnered their second try as McCusker, after taking a pass from
Jack McKercher, plunged his way
through a half dozen tacklers down
to the twenty.   Here he gave the
ball to Joe Pegues, who In turn
passed  to Keith  MacDonald  and
Keith went over to give the Thunderbirds the lead for the first time
in the contest. Croll failed to convert from near the sidelines.
After many unsuccessful attempts to increase their total,
due to the abundance of many
unexplained penalties, Victoria
tied the score via a beautiful
penalty boot from the 35 near
the touch line.
Varsity came back gamely and
were rewarded when Croll made
his heroic dash into the end zone.
The'entire Thunderbird aggregation played magnificently and, if
given a chance, would probably
have given the Redshirts a beating
that would not have been soon
forgotten. Croll was, without a
doubt, the best player on the field.
SECOND CLUB LOSES
Varsity's second squad, playing
an intermediate college squad,
were not able to do quite so well
ns their big brothers as they went
down to defeat by a 6-3 score.
There was no scoring during <
the first half as both teams '
were not too impressive. But
Immediately after the start of
the second stanza Scott Kerr
gave Varsity the lead when he
carried thc ball over from a
loose scrum.
Victoria   scored   after   pressing}
very strenuously  and came right
back to take the lead.  They didn'tl
relinquish     it    although    Varsity]
showed up much better than the>
had previously.
