SCM Plans
Youth Camps
Plans are afoot to send UEC students
to Reconstruction Camps in Europe
this summer, according to Tom Wal-
don, SCM official.
The SCM is taking the lead in
forming a committee representing the
various clubs on the campus for that
purpose, Waldon told the Daily Ubyssey yesterday. An initial meeting
held Tuesday was attended by members, of nine student groups. Noti-
fiation of the next meeting will be
sent to all clubs, he added.
Under the proposed scheme UBC
students would be sent to the camps,
which are sponsored by the World
Federation of Democratic Youth, at a
cost of approximately $500 each excluding fare to the East Coast. Ways
and means of financing have yet to be
arranged, Waldon said. However, all
those inteersted who can pay their
own way are advised to contact the
SCM office, Room 312 in the Auditorium.
"McGill sent 21 representatives last
summer from all phases of campus
life," said Waldon. "We can do the

day when nations were so dependent

UofT Power Cut
Halts Labs, Classes
Toronto, March 2—(CUP)-With
no preconceived idea of what the
Toronto Hydro Electric Commission
has next on its'agenda in'the current
Ontario power shortage, faculties on
University of Toronto campus were
found totally unprepared when power
was cut last week.
In the Chemistry building lack of
electricity destroyed control of every
constant temperature bath, ruining
hundreds of  experiments.
Although the undergraduate teaching was not seriously affected, the
cutting off of power seriously affected all research departments in
the building.
Engineering and orestry students
sufered too, when labs were interfered with by the power cut.
Only the Household Science Building was not completely handicapped
since half of its stoves are gas operated.

"say a few words."

For Training
Canada's reserve forces are stronger
by about fifty men, as the UBC Contingent COTC announced the names
of newly elected officer cadets to
begin  training almost immediately.
The UBC contingent, which is composed of 70 cadets including the new
selectees, trains each Tuesday evening at the Armories and will spend
the four summer months in training
with an active unit of their own
particular corps.
The UBC Cadets, who are divided
among the Armoured Corps, Artillery,
Engineers, Signals, Infantry, Provost
Corps, Pay Corps, Service Corps, Ordnance and RCEME, will spend two
successive training periods during
the summer.
With this background, a Cadet becomes qualified as full lieutenant,
reserve force. An additional summer
training period will qualify a cadet
as a lieutenant in the active army,
or a captain, reserve force.

Bil to Control Womens' Fashions
The "mock" in Mock Parliament triumped over traditional
party politics at UBC Wednesday when the "gag" party WUSTEST gave a thorough trouncing to its "old line" opponents.
The party will form the government in the university**
Mock Parliament to be held in Brock Hall March 11.
Victory    of    the   zany    WUSTESTt	
group meant a sound defeat for party
politicians on the campus who had
striven to keep the annual Mock
Parliament a "true reflection of politics in  the federal House."
The WUSTEST government will
be forced to either stand on shaky
ground without a working majority
or form a coalition with another
Standings In the 48-seat House will
be: WUSTEST, 19; CCF, 12; Liberal.
10;   Progressive-Conservative,   7.
In one of the largest votes recorded
in Mock Parliament history, the
WUSTEST group gathered 603; CCF,
372; Liberals, 300; and Progressive-
Conservatives,  197.
"Prime Minister" Hugh Legge will
head the government.
True to its zany platform, the
government party will introduce a
raft of "nutty" measures.
The WUSTEST party will seek to
remove party politics from the Mock
Parliament, the Prime Minister said,
and instead will concentrate on training in debating.
The WUSTEST government will
seek to place womens' fashions under
national control and remove postal
and penal services to free enterprise.

nearly as urgent as other construction," Lanskail said.

UBC professors need have no fear that
that their students may suddenly blossom
forth as amateur newspaper reporters rushing to put into print every offhand remark
made in the classroom.
Because of an editorial which appeared
in this corner a few days ago, such a fear has
apparently been plaguing the lunchtime discussion at UBC's Faculty Club.
The Daily Ubyssey had said that it sometimes seemed a shame that professors talked
themselves hoarse for eight months of the
year with the sole result of seeing their
words tossed back again on an examination
paper. We thought professors should share
their recognized wisdom—through the* press
—with the persons who, after all, pay a large
part of the professors' salary.
But let's not have an undercover army
of reporters hiding behind looseleaf books
in every lecture hall. Instead, let tbe professor share his words with the taxpayer as
long as the professor knows which words he
is going to share.
As for us, we'll make sure the professor
knows just when and how he's being immortalized in print.

Sketchy Appeal
Dear Sir:
Dr. Endicott's appeal for western
support of a Communist China
was a little sketchy and rather
leads one to look more closely at
his manner of thinking.
Granted that we know very little
about Chinese Communists. The
fact is we are all acquainted with
the depotism of the Russians and
Europeans of that  ideology.
Dr. Endicott conceives a "Red
China" as one harmonious, demo
cratic union composed mainly, of
social democrats, Chiang-Kai
Shek's apparently still loyal supporters, even though the party is
still supposed to be corrupt. Evidently he underestimates Communistic tactics of bloodshed and
violence used to eliminate opposition.
The lecturer mentioned ' that
Chiang-Kai Shek refused to fight
Japan until 1939. Who among us
has not admired his determined
resistance in meeting Japan's superior forces for the previous eight
years, to that year. A man capable
of such organizing abilities can
and would have organized a bigger and better China if Communists (aided by Russian seized
Japanese material) had not sabotaged his efforts by attacking him
when his forces were exhausted

Those who have experienced the
grim realities of a second World
War are not desirous of encouraging another by supporting a

western civilization.

has endeavored so long in keeping
China free, we may be saved in
sending our Canadian boys later

Mrs. Alex Macdonald, member of
Canadian Author's Association, speaking on Women's Rights. Friday, 12:30
These days I am working on a
scheme which I hope will prove of
benefit to mankind and to me especially.
My scheme involves girls. Speaking of girls, I once knew of a very
beautiful young lady who had the
misfortune to go through life known
as Gertie. Gertie was the daughter
of a pdor laborer who lived twenty
feet off the right of way on the
wrong side of the tracks.
By her considerable beauty, Gertie
seductively slid past the registrar,
the bursar, and a number of goggle-
eyed freshmen, into university where
she met Cecil Gringe, a plain but
sincere young gentleman whose
father owned all the salmon in B.C.
In no time at all Gertie and Cecil
were joined in wedlock and Gertie's
father owned all the salmon while
Mr. Cringe labored, near the right
of way.
But Gertie got married so I'm afraid
we've started off on the wrong girl.
My scheme, as I told you, involves
girls, especially pretty, golden-haired
co-eds. The system is simple. Each
male student—XX quantity—should
have at his side during lectures a
female student — XY quantity — or
better still, two or three, in order
to relieve the monotony of the hour-
long battle with the intricacies of
At university lectures in the arts
faculty there seems to be a tendency
towards segregation. Two girls will
enter the lecture hall and sit together. Their row is immediately
designated as an XY quantity row
and only XY quantity types manage
to sit there. This is due to the fact
that the XY types are faster on their
feet than the XX and the row is
filled before we have a chance.
This insidious forming of cliques
in lectures (i.e. lecture cliques) is
not only contrary to our democratic
system, but hard on the girls who
are outnumbered by the boys four
to one.
In   much   thc   same   spirit   of   the
A-bomb experimenters who take
chances with radioactivity, I have
attempted a crusade to alleviate the
situation. Yesterday in the lecture
hall I was confronted by a whole
row of the XY quantity and near the
center was an empty seat. Ignoring
the stony stares and audible references to my mentality, I politely
edged my way in. There was a book
on the seat which I handed to the
girl nearest, saying, "Pardon me.
I think you dropped something." She
didn't say anything, she didn't have
to. After that I found it a little cool,
in fact I wore my coat all through
class. But I'm sure those girls must
have been happy to have an eligible
male  in  their  midst
When I do find myself sitting beside a co-ecl, we indulge in a game
of peek-a-boo, or at any rate I do.
The trick here is to wait until the
lecturer dictates something hard to
spell. In order to appear genuine,
mutter to yourself and make a pretense of looking at the notes to your
right—those of an uninteresting male,
Then turn and peer to your left.
After the first few seconds my eyes
are apt to deflect from the notes to
a pair of shapely, tanned legs. In
fact I now have my eyes so well
trained that they just ignore the
One rainy clay I sat near a blonde,
who insisted on removing her boots
—sloshers, I've heard them called—
during a lecture on John Milton. My
neck is still a little stiff from being
put out of joint and if Milton appears
on this year's English exam I'll just
sit and dream of a rainy day and a
pair  of boot?,
Well, this segregation business
might become serious, and I'm sure
that my scheme would be a boon
to the girls and a boost to tlie female
way of life—if it needs a boost.
After all Gertie might have married

Students registered all degrees of
approval and disapproval to the refreshingly different display. The un-
sophisticate was pleased with the
quiet realism of Maxwell Bates' representations of prairie life, but he
was puzzled by distortion used in

The "arty" student appreciated
Vivian Lindoe's exquisite, abstract
treatment of such subjects as "Pre-
dation" and "Coyotes," and the emotional effects of Dorothy Willis'
'Prosperity at Sechelt" and "Water
Tower, Acadia Camp" both quite
familiar to Vancouver art enthusiasts.
For sheer beauty in color Luke
Lindoe was praised for his "Nocturne" scenes which adequately captured the feeling of a winter night.
His "Western Landscape" and "Second Growth Cedar" are "delightful
fantasies in color and form" according to some of his admirers.
"The show is refreshingly full of life
and contemporary in feeling," said
Dave Shapiro, of the Architectural
department and head of the graphic
arts section of the Fine Arts Committee at UBC.
Dorothy Willis, who was on hand
during noon hours last week to discuss the show with interested students, stated that she was "surprised
that students seemed to be not only
interested in slibject matter but
also in technique."
She added that "appreciation of
anything painted in a broad manner-
is difficult in such a narrow gallery.
However, the Fine Arts Committee
hopes that the new library addition
will contain a room which may be
used  for   art   displays."

Social Works Director
Pleased With Results
UBC's Marian J. Smith sat
smiling in her new office last
week and recalled the progress of
her department of Social Work.
The silver-haired, matronly social
work director has reason to be
Since her arrival, five years ago,
social work at the university has
acquired departmental standing,
a doubled enrollment, and recognition by the American Association of Schools of Social Work.
AASSW is the recognized authoritative body in this field in
North America. Only two other
Canadian schools, at University of
Toronto and McGill in Montreal,
are accredited by the Association.
Miss Smith, a former instructor
at Smith College in Massachusetts
came to Canada and UBC in 1943.
In that year she reorganized
Social Work in a separate distinct
course. Previously, since 1929, it
had existed precariously under the
wing of the Department of Economics,
A member of the executive of
the AASSW, she was largely responsible in bringing social work
standards at UBC to a point where
they were accepted and accredited
by that organization.
Boasting the second largest
school in Canada, the department
has a total enrollment of 102 students, housed in the recently opened departmental biulding. Although the profession was onee
considered "work for women,"
Miss Smith, pointed out that the
present attendance is more than
one third men.
Businessmen, teachers, clergymen   and   graduate   students   are
among the many types enrolled
in the course. They have a strong
and active student organization
which "receives the democratic
encouragement of faculty members."
The two year course is based
on a three way program which
includes classroom lectures, clinical work, practice with district
social agencies and graduate research involving production of a
Medical and Psychiatric Information, Case Work, Public and Child
Welfare and Group Work are
some of the many subjects offered
in the varied course.
For those interested in entering
the field Miss Smith advised a
sound, liberal education "And of
course we are always glad to interview prospective social workers,"
she added.

The time is once again drawing around to where the emphasis is put on boxing and wrestling on the campus, as the
Second Annual Boxing and Wrestling Championships get
under way on March 19, in the Gym, and judging by the beating
the boxing equipment has been taking, the boys are really
prepping for this show.
According   to   Jack   Pomfret,   the^
entries have been pouring in steadily,
indicating even a better draw than
last year which saw some of the best
fights in the history of the University.
This year's draw is not without some
"name" fighters either. Pat Worthington placed in the runner-up slot
in the Golden Gloves tournament this
year, and J. MoDairmid, Alberta's
light-heavy champion will be battling
for the honour of his home province
Other fighters showing "guts" and

Wallabies Take Thunderbirds
Spectacular  Rugger Match
Australians Show Great Form
As Birds Downed in 20-6 Tilt
Thursday, March 4, 1943
Sports Staff
Blasts Union:
Now that the British Columbia
Rugby Union has salted away several
thousand dollars in profits from the
local appearances of the Australians
we wish to add our voice to the three
downtown dailies who have discovered
tmat the Union is one of the most
niggardly spending, poorly managed
and inconsistent groups of so called
athletic backers that we have ever
come across.
The visit of the Wallabies was a
continual comedy of errors and blunders by Rugby supporters who only
get the chance to be in the big time
every ten years. Even when the
visitors played at UBC, student requests for complimentary tickets for
players wives were turned down. In
spite of the fact that the tweed suit
wearers have been crying for publicity for years they made no allowance for Daily Ubyssey reporters and
even downtown reporters had difficulty obtaining "comps." And at Saturday's game even UBC coaches, who
have worked hard for years, were
not allowed in Brockton Bowl.
The local moguls are going to find
out soon that the amount of Interest
aroused in rugby by the visitors may
be cancelled by the well merited ill
feeling   that   has   been   aroused   by
local blundering.
This department wonders if tlie
12,000 dollars will compensate for the
exposure which has revealed the real
weakness of local rugby to be none
other than the riiculous narrow sighted
attitude of the B. C. Rugby Union.
We hope that rugby players wake up
before their leaders kill the game
Hockey Squad In Easy
Win Over Prince George
Somebody will have to tell*
the UBC Thunderbirds that
they have been elminated from
the Senior B hockey playoffs,
or they will go on beating the
remaining contenders indefinitely. Last weekend, the Birds
paid a flying visit to Prince
George and defeated the Northern Champions 9-4 and 12-6.
Lead by Bobby Koch and Haas
Young who scored six and four goals
respectively for the two game set-to,
the Birds had no trouble in defeating
the Prince George boys who had
previously boasted a record of 20
won and 1 lost.
After a feeling out period in which
they boys got used to the exceptionally fast ice, the Birds overcame a
2-0 deficit by rapping in five goals
in about five minutes. From that
point in it was a rout, with the first
game winding up 9-4. For the first
game, Koch garnered the hat-trick,
with Young getting the first of his
four. Freddy Andrew with two,
Wagner with two and Nelford with
one,  wound up the scoring.
Yesterday's rugger match must have
been rather herd on Australian
findergnails, for if the shortwave
broadcast beamed at the "down
under" continent was accurate to any
degree, it is a cinch that quite a few
people in the land of the Wallabies
were chewing on them—and chewing
Most experts tab the actual score
at 17-12, two of the Australian tries
being made on distinct forward
passes. Even if Referee Burnham
had spotted oe of these, it might
naev altered the wnole picture considerably. The Thunderbirds had
hard luck on more than one occasion
when a speedy Australian managed
to snag a sloose ball in payoff territory.
Speaking of Burnham, it is a cinch
that the last complaint in the worli
that the Aussies couid make would
be regarding the refereeing. Burnham leant over backwards to avoid
any home-town discrimination, and
in several cases, seemed to be either
blind or wearing dark glasses. On
the whole, however, the refereeing
was of top-notch calibre, and Burnham handled a ticklish situation fairly
Koch and Nelford were picked
one-two in the three-star selections
of the Prince George radio announcer.
The second tilt was a repeat of the
first, as the visitors took a first period
3-2 lead and were never headed as
they rapped goals behind the northern netminder to triple their score
by the end of the second session. The
final score was 12-6.
Young and Koch managed the hat-
trick in this second fiasco, with Torfason, Wagner netting two and
Saunders and Berry, one each.
Andrew was the playmaker for the
series, setting up at least five goals
—most of them tricky passing combinations with Berry and Young.
As in Nanaimo, i'he Birds won
the favour of the crowd with their
spirit and drive, even though beating
the home team. In fact the Birds
were so well liked that following the
game, the executive of the Prince
George Club invited the campus men
back for two more series next year.
The Birds in their turn were appreciative of the hospitality shown
them and in the words of managers
Porteous and Thiessen—'It was hospitality such as we've never experienced before'.
An Apology...
The Sports staff of the UBYSSEY
offers their apologies to the members
of Doug Whittle's swim team, who
copped the only conference crown
taken by a UBC team this year.
The slight coverage given this effort
is certainly to be lamented, but owing
to circumstances, a reporter could
not be sent with the team, and no
one could be found to write the
story until very close to press time.
Again, a note of apology, and keep
up the good work!
The  staff.
The Birds took the first game last November with a
close win over the Lions and since then both the Lions and
Birds have been stopped by the hard working Victoria
Crimson Tide. The Blue and Gold squad must take both
this game and the coming Victoria tilt in order to retain
possession,of the McKechnie Cup.
Bruised in body but not in spirit, the Thunderbird
Ruggermen will continue their tough Spring schedule Saturday when they kick off against Vancouver Lions in the
Stadium. It will be the third McKechnie Cup tilt this year
for Al Laithewaite's student fifteen.
The Dominion Skiing Championships
were just run off at Banff, Alberta,
and if it were not for the UBC boys,
the westerners would have been
slaughtered. There were 120 entries
in the downhill and the only Western
skiers to place In the first ten were
Doug Fraser 3rd, and Gar Robinson
9th. Fraser sped at over 60 miles per
hour for the mile and a half course
to place only 3 seconds behind the
In the slalom John Frazee came 2nd
with Doug Fraser 10th, and in the
combined and slalom, Fraser was 3rd
and Frazee 10th. All ln all, the UBC
skiers have more than proven themselves as leading Olympic contenders,
according to campus ski enthusiasts.
That Al Laithewaite's Thunderbird rugby squad will have
little trouble in cleaning up opposition in the remaining McKechnie Cup games was proven decisively yesterday afternoon,
when the students surpysed the world champion Australian
Wallabies by holding them to a 20-6 win. The Blue and Gold
fifteen put on their best show of the year to give the touring
Aussies more than a run for their money before the biggest
crowd ever seen in the campus Stadium.

Jayvees Ahead in
Hockey Playdowns
Junior Varsity hockey team
took a four goal lead in their
two-game total goal semi-final
series in the Westminster Commercial league as they defeated
Western and White 6-2.
Le^d by Robertson who scored one
goal and assisted on two others, the
junior campus squad had little trouble
in a really fast tilt,
Other goal getters were Vern Sheiil,
Berry, Husband, Pruner, and B'ohan,
with Bohan also assisting on a pair
and Robertson setting up another.
The winners led 2-1 at the end

two themselves.
no indication ot tne play, nor was
it a bit embarrassing after the 36-3
score run up by the visitors over
Vancouver Reps last week,
The Wallabies opened the scoring
early, and five minutes after the
kickoff their three line went over
for an unconevrted try. UBC came
right back up the field and forced
a twenty five yard kick when the
visitors were forced to touch it behind their line. Hilary Wotherspoon
just missed a penalty kick a few
moments later.
Ten minutes later the attacking
Australians were awarded a penalty
kick just 23 yards from the posts and
it brought the tally up to 6-0.
Inspired with new energy the Birds
came right back from the kick off,
and five minutes later, when they
were awarded a penalty kick at the
40 yard line, Wotherspoon split the
posts to make it 6-3.
Wallabie kicking was poor throughout the game, and in spite of continual penalties being awarded against
UBC, the Green sweatered invaders
took three tries at the posts before
making the tally 9-3, finally, from a
25 yard boot.
Just before half time Wotherspoon
was awarded another chance at fame
and from 25 yards out managed to
bring the score up to 9-6.
The half 'time break was enlivened
by the antics of an irate policeman
who raised a ladder to clear spectators from the roofs of adjoining
buildings, only to have the ladder
carried away temporarily by cheering students.
The 'Birds turned on the heat for
most of the second half, with forwards and backs all playing an attacking   game.   For   twenty
the Wallabies only crossed the centre
line once.
After forcing another twenty five
yard kick the students were unable
to stop a perfect exhibition of passing and running which carried the
leaders from the kick to a score in
one play. Wallabie three line passing
was particularly impressive. The convert was wide but the tally went up
to 12.
In the last ten minutes the Australians turned on full power to
treat the fans to a beautiful display
of lateral passing, faking and cutting
back. The champions went over the
line for two tries during this attack,
partially because UBC was playing
a man short after Les Hempsall was
slightly injured.
Chickens Run Into
Trouble in Arts
The UBC Fish and Game Club will
supply chicken dinners for sharpshooters, when they hold their chicken
shoot in the Arts building, on March
4th  and 5th.
No, they're not going to loose a myriad chickens in the halls and then
go potting them with ,22's, but they
will adjourn to the South West basement where the COTC range has been
set up, and campus marksmen there
may vent their spite on the targets.
Chickens will be given to the nim-
rods scoring the best shots, as well
as fo rthose blind individuals who
happen to be lucky.
A strong turnout is expected so the
range will open at 11:30 a.m. on the
days of the shoot.
Thus  anyone  who  has  lectures   in
the Arts building today and tomorrow
had   better   wear   their   bullet-proof
minutes vests  to  classes.
