• "WHAT FORM should a university war memorial take?"
That's one of the questions current on Canadian Campus. The
answers vary in detail, but show
an unmistakable trend toward the
functional type of memorial rather than the traditional cenotaph
of the First Great War.
Memorial plans vary all the way
from the blueprint and fund-raising stage to those already under
construction. Some Canadian universities have not yet progressed
beyond the thought that some sort
of memorial should be erected to
commemorate the sacrifice of their
own students and graduates.
At Queen's University, where no
official plans have been formulated, student opinion favors the
erection of a university building
such as a new students' union.
Opinions are similar at the University of Manitoba. Manitoba
arts students feel that books,
books, and more books, added to
the library would be a lasting
memorial to which bereaved families of servicemen could continue
to add. A student architect suggests a memorial stadium but all
opinions agree that whatever the
memorial it should be something
A survey of student opinion at
Dalhousie University Indicates that
the students are in favor of an
auditorium or a new men's residence. Less than one percent of
those questioned approved the
construction of a cenotaph.
The War. Memorial at Acadia
University is almost completed
now. It began to take shape ln
1943 when a barracks was required
for the No. 2 Canadian Army University Course. During that year
the ground floor of a new men's
residence was built and In the
spring of '45 construction was
again under way. One hundred
and sixteen veterans are now
housed in the residence and by
next fall, when the building Is
finally completed, it will accommodate 140 men.
A War Memorial Wing is to be
added to the Sir Arthur Currie
Memorial Gymnasium at McGill
University. Half of the wing will
be accupied by a .swimming pool
and a memorial hall, the other half
by a basketball floor. A campaign
to raise the necessary funds has
been carried on among the students by the Graduates' Society,
asking each one to sign a pledge
to pay $10.00 with the payment of
their fees.
The University of Saskatchewan
plans a student union building for
their War Memorial. A Student
Memorial Committee is already at
work and construction will begin
next fall. Appeals for funds are
being made to the university
alumni, to commercial organizations and to the whole student
A Memorial Rink was erected at
St. Francis Xavier University to
commemorate the dead of the Frst
Great War, and the students are
now striving to raise sufficient
funds for a Memorial Football
Stadium. The project was begun
last summer and will be continued
next spring so that the field will
be ready for football next fall.
No official plans for an All-
University War Memorial have yet
been advanced at the University
of Toronto but the Alumni Association has recently approved
University College's plan to transform, their West Hall into a Memorial Hall. The hall would then
be used for large classes and public lectures.
Similarly the University of New
Brunswick, although no official
action has been taken, opinion follows the popular trend with a
desire for a functional living memorial. An indoor skating rink is
needed on the campus, and most
of the students support a movement to erect a memorial rink,
which would be available to the
city as well as the university.
• WIVES of ex-service students
on the campus have been invited to a tea sponsored by the
Women's Undergraduate Societies

• MONTREAL, Dec. 4.-(CUP)
—Construction of a 25 million
electron volt cyclotron and radiation laboratory will begin at University of McGill.
The announcement was made by
F. Cyril James, principal.
The two-storey building housing
the cyclotron will be of concrete
and will have a mound-shaped
wing on one side containing the
machine itself.
The ceiling will be two feet
thick and ten feet of earth will
overlay the exterior.
Between the cyclotron room 6nd
the radiation laboratory will be
an underground passage which
will have two right angles.
These precautions are due to the
effects of the neutrons and gamma

of a million dollars.
Girl Comes From N.Y.
To 'Mom's' Alma Mater
*•   FAR AWAY fields look greener, but Dorothy Oldenburg,
who came from her New York home just to attend UBC
isn't disappointed.
"I loved Vancouver from the minute I saw it" she states.
"It is definitely one of the most beautiful cities for natural
beauty I've ever been in."
No. 29
Dot, pretty, brown haired, and
just seventeen is one of a second
generation at UBC in what might
be called the second generation of
huts. "I probably would never
have heard of BC's university if
mom hadn't oome here," ahe
claims (In spite of Varsity's teeming 5600). "Mom was at UBC in
the days of Fairview shacks and
she still liked it."
Because of her mother's enthusiasm for her Alma Mater, Dot decided to come here, and she states
emphatically that she ian't disappointed. "My friends in N.Y.
wanted to know were UBC was,"
laughed Dot. They asked in horror, "do you mean you're going to
that cold climate." Dot added
"I've written to tell them that
Vancouver has a warmer climate
than New York."
"I expected to find a few skyscrapers in Vancouver since I was
told it was Canada's third largest
city," she admitted and recalled
that one of the first people she
met pointed out the Marine Building. "Oh, is that the headquarters
for Canada's marine corps," she
remembers having said. Needless
to flay lt was quite a surprise to
find out that the United States
marine corps had not yet "landed"
in Canada.
Recalling some first impressions,
Dot stated that she found the
speech very clipped, with different
words for such familiar things as
"davenport," "napkin" and •'sneaX-
ers." Many of the styles now in
vogue in Vancouver have already
gone out in New York. The campus seemed subdued compared to
a U.S. campus, which is more
noisy and boisterous with more
"do's," and Vancouverites at first
seemed "stand offish."
Speaking of the education system, Dot felt that the history
courses given at UBC wens broadening. "We are learning more
about other countries this year"
she said "whereas we were always
taught U.S. participation in world
affairs and not so much about the
countries themselves."
•   THE DISTINGUISHED Polish artist, A. G. Bulhak, has
in his pictorial album "UBC Panorama" caught some of
the tradition, beauty and promise of our campus.
Mr. Bulhak's fine photographs have captured the essentials
of the beauty and warmth which has endeared our spacious
location to so many visitors.
With the benefit of his vast experience in the photographic art
and his keen appreciation of the
problems of the ceasless struggle
for a University in Western BC,
he has caught the youthful vigor
and spirit which is such a driving
force behind our university.
"A liberal eductaion is one
which will teach a man to think,
to enrich his own mind by a study
of the great minds of the past,
to learn the meaning of culture in
the? best sense of that term, to
learn to assess life and the experiences of life in terms of value
rather than in terms of efficiency."
In UBC Panorama, this sentence
taken from the album is capably
and clearly  demonstrated  with a
subtle but strong mastery.
This book will, in a large measure, explain to parents and
friends, who may lie somewhat be-
v.ildcred as to the advantages of
"higher learning," just how thc
university system uf education and
association leads to broader flvlds
of und.rstanding in the functioning of human values. It would,
make ;i fine Christmas gift to one'.;
friends for it contains all the elements of functionalism.
Mr. Bulhak presents sympathetic
treatment of our campus and the
life which flourishes upon it.
The rare and delightful combination of photography and document in a condensed but sparkling
and descriptive panorama makes
delightful reading for the attending student and his bewildered

Ex-Magee Maid
Amazes Mamooks
• ITS A PLEASURE to dig up
the dough for tickets to Varsity  functions   these   days   with
Mary MacMillan in charge.
Mary, an active members of
Mam,ooks, is one of the few first
year students to be given such a
post of responsibility. Ordinarily
frosh Mamooks must serve a year
as a pledge before becoming an
active member of the club, but
Mary, a product of Magee High,
has proved so capable that the
club has been forced to act outside their constitution and make
her an active member as well as
a member of the Mamook executive.
Now she has been appointed
officially as co-ordlnator of ticket
sales for all UBC functions, responsible directly to the AMS.
"Mary handled the f«00 take for
the Symphony concert Uke a veteran," commended Aaro Aho,
Mamook president.
Campus organizations wishing
to place tickets on sale should contact Mary MacMillan either at
Kerr. 1522 or at the ^famook club
rooms in the basement of the
Brock, just as soon as the date is
set, so that she can book the quad
ticket office ln plenty of time.

know, so get active before Xmas,
Book Store Plans
Move After Exams
• THE BOOK STORE plana to
move to its new location opposite the snack shop, end of the
quad as soon as possible, states
Mr. Hunter, manager.
His hopes are that his department
will be removed from its present
cramped quarters in the auditorium building to the new location as soon as lectures cease for
Christmas exams.
Hunter points out that this site
will be far more advantageous
than the present as books can be
stored more conveniently. As it
is now storerooms are scattered
throughout the various buildings
on the campus. ,
The shortage of English 2 texts
still exists but has become less
serious than it was. Fortunately,
a new text has been chosen for
those enrolling in English 2 in
January and these will be hi the
hands of the Book Store by the
first of January.
"The situation is easing," declared Hunter. "We are very
pleased with the co-operation
shown by the students aa they
realize our position and have done
their best to help us."

Legion Surveys
All Servicemen
• MOST COMPREHENSIVE survey of living conditions
of student-veterans in any Canadian university is being
made this week by University of British Columbia branch
of the Canadian Legion, President Tony Greer announced
Questionnaires on cost of living, housing and employment
are being mailed today by the branch to 2,300 veterans at
Urging accurate answering of
the questionnaires and their
speedy return, Greer said the
main reason for the three-fold
survey was to provide statistical
information to be presented by
UBC delegates to a planned Canada-wide student-veteran conference in Toronto at the end of December.
Greer declared that as soon as
the Legion branch was convinced
it had a just case and had facts
to work on, it would pull no
punches in an attempt to get action. Policy of the UBC Legion
branch was to do all possible to
aid all student-veterans here.
Results of the housing and employment surveys also will be used
by the Legion committees working
on these questions. Holiday and
part-time employment desires of
students will be cross-indexed and
classified. Statements on housing
conditions will be used to give
students priority when new quarters are found.
Replies to housing and cost-of-
living questionnaires will be confidential, and after classification in
card indexes will be available only
to the chairmen of the committees
All questionnaires must be returned by December 10. Instructions for filling them out are enclosed with them.
Cost-of-living questionnaire asks
for: Student's monthly expenses
for everything from board or
household costs to street-car fare
and recreation; expenditure on
clothing, medical care, insurance,
rail or bus fares to out-of-town
homes, and books and equipment*
for courses.
Monthly income from several
sources is requested, and a statement of how much the student is
cutting into his savings, Students
are asked: "Can you complete
your course on your present income? Have financial difficulties
seriously hampered your studies?"
Housing questionnaire asks
whether students are satisfied
with their present quarters, whether they are conducive to study
ond whether students face removal.
It also asks in wnat type of
place the student lives, whether
he has a family with him, how
far he must commute and whether

Employment questionnaire includes questions on type of work
desired, when and where desired,
previous experience, and whether
student served overseas. The latter
question is included because of
the attitude of some employers,
Greer said. Information obtained
will be made available to the UBC
employment bureau, which may
be enlarged next year.
A general qeustlonnalre asks
student-veterans' opinions on the
following proposals: That books
and equipment be provided by an
average cost grant or by billing

to attend the Pub Tea
Thursday in the Faculty Dining
Room in the caf, must sign up

cost-of-living index for each city,
and that a student's loan fund be
set up to parallel the policy of
the Veterans' Land Act, to give
students long-term low-interest
Student-veterans will also be
asked their opinions of employer
discrimination between overseas
and non-overseas veterans, and of
the restriction of aid to graduates
to those who can prove that their
studies are in "the public interest."
This general survey will ask for
specific and general proposals and
opinions on veterans' problems.
Those answering are urged to use
several sheets of paper if necessary.
Grant Livingstone, co-ordlnator
of the survey, told the Ubyssey
that a number of persons had given
a great deal of time to preparation of the survey. He urged that
all student-veterans spend a few
minutes to fill out the questionnaire with care.
Any who do not receive questionnaires in the mail may get
them at tiie Legion office, Hut 1.

Students To Rent
BC Artists' Work
•   STUDENTS who wish to obtain paintings under the Student Art Association loan may do
so this Wednesday, December 5.
The paintings, which are loaned
to the students, are the works of
B.C. artists. Students may rent
any of the paintings simply by
paying the nominal sum of 11.00 a
year. The pictures may be exchanged each month for a new
Most of the paintings in the exchange are for sale, at prices suited to the student pocketbook. Some
of the Library's famous Carnegie
reproductions, which are not for
sale, will be included In the loan.
Students who took pictures out
last month are reminded to return
those paintings on Wednesday to
the Periodical Room in the Library and obtain new one. The
displays will be changed on the
first Wednesday of each month.
This is an opportunity for students who enjoy good paintings to
take one home. All of the pictures are originals, except the
Carnegie selection, which copies

Hands Across The Country
Concrete foundation for inter-university
alliance, and exchange not only of students
but also of practical views on student ,
government, will be strengthened by means
of the National Federation of Canadian
University Students Conference at McGill
University this Christmas. '
Every university and student group is
different, but every university in Canada
is experiencing the same changes, modes,
and influences this year. The two University
of British Columbia delegates will be able
to place UBC problems before delegates
from Manitoba, Nova Scotia, McGill or Al
berts, and see whether UBC solutions compare favorably.
Housing, employment, returned men on
the campus, the Japanese student problem,
campus discipline, budgets, the place of
politics in a university, and other pertinent
topics are conference dscussion meat. UBC
will hear the views of other student government leaders and the delegates will express
UBC opinions.
The conference this Christmas will give
valuable experience to university leaders
across the country. But university conferences in any year are by no means a waste
of time and effort.
Student Thieves Again
The Discipline Committee is making a
belated move in rolling into stern action
against students found guilty of permanently
borrowing the notes and books of others.
The action should have been taken at the
beginning of the term.
Several students are in danger of failing
exams this Christmas because unscrupulous
or unthinking students have simply evaporated with precious notes and doubly precious
books. It is a very bad thing that students
can't safely leave their belongings unguarded
for a monent in the Library or any other
building on the campus without becoming
victims of a growing crop of book-snatchers.
Another example of UBC thoughtlessness
and "leave it to George" policy is the loss
of a sizable sum of money by a small boy
who operates the News Herald newspaper
box on the campus. If students snatch
papers without paying for them others will
lose the privilege of having news served
handily to them before their lectures.
Other pests appropriate reserve books
which are available in an approximate ration
of one per sixty students.
No action which the Discipline Committee
could take against these students could be
too harsh. People who confiscate the examination study material of others deserve to
have their misbegotten examination marks
It is indeed too bad that UBC has student
thieves this year. Other universities don't
seem to be having the same trouble.
Merry Christmas To You
Examinations are advancing resolutely,
small children have dispatched their Christmas mail to Santa Claus, women are beginning to purchase Christmas ties for their
husbands, the Registrar is sending hysterical
notes to the Ubyssey saying that Christmas
marks will NOT be given out through-his
office, and Jabez has written a wordy bundle
of Christmas joy.
All in all its the time of the year for the
Ubyssey to extend a mixture of holiday
greetings and sympathy to the student body.
Christmas, we feel, is the most melancholy
time of the year, with the exception, perhaps
of the middle spring.
We extend sympathy to freshmen who
won't know what hit them until they bounce
at the beginning of the year.
We extend sympathy to service boys returning to the grind .after a while and who
think that Christmas examinations couldn't
possibly be as bad as in former years.
We extend condolences to upperclassmen
who are going through all this again.
We feel sorry for everyone.
Have a Merry Christmas if you can.
• ARRIVAL at the Book Store of a new
shipment of hara-kiri swords reminds
us that the Christmas exams are just around
the corner. This is the same corner that
Prosperity used to be just around, only now
it leads into a dimly-lit dead-end alley,
peopled by shadowy formulae, lined with
dark passages of memory, and pungent with
the rotted hopes of old Chem 3 students.
Coffee Crunchers
Yes, people are starting to think about
the Christmas exams - you can hear them
shooting themselves behind the Library almost every night now. To avoid being taken
alive and examined by Physics 4, stony-faced
sciencemen are preparing small phials of
Caf coffee to crunch between their teeth.
Increasing numbers of Psych 1 people are
found lying in the entrance to the parking
lot these mornings, waiting to be run over
by something heavy. And thirty sections
of English 1 are hopefully awaiting an outbreak of the the Black Plague amongst the
We don't mean we're fingering one of the
smaller commissionaires when we say we're
feeling a little flunky.
Our largest crowds, however, continue to
cluster around bulletin boards bearing exam
timetables. Some members stare with dumb
horror at the inevitable, struggling to understand why, in a two-week period, they are
writing three exams, in one day. Others
merely stand around patiently waiting to be
struck by lightning.
Classy Clashes
Easing into one of these merry groups,
you search the timetable eagerly for a clash
between a couple of your exams, if not all
of them. You aren't sure what good it
would do, but feel instinctively that anything
is better than being given an opportunity to
write all your exams. Wistfully you note
that you would have a nice clash between
Math 1 and English 21a, if you were taking
English 21a, which you're not. You note
too that some exams start at 12 noon, and
shudder at the timetable's cold-blooded
assumption that you won't feel like having
lunch anyhow, and will probably be sorry
you ate breakfast.
A different atmosphere prevails over in
the Admin building, where the staff is preparing for its lively Yule season, and where
the offices' have already been charmingly
decorated with Christmas greenery - freshman skins - hung with bright bunches of
bloodshot eyes, or cramberries.
The busy elves of the Registrar are ready
to climb into their addressographs and shoot
off invitations to all sorts of expectant
kiddies, telling them the Dean wants to see
them in his office - ho! ho! ho! - and he'll
have something for them in his sack - ho'
ho! ho! - what's left of their caution money.
But Mr. Wood says that owing to the
continued shortage of rubber, failing students will not be bounced this Christmas.
They'll hit once and just lie there.
Cranium Cracker
The Faculty team, after a brief huddle, is
ready to shift into the Bloody Mary play, in
which the student's head, (looks a little like
yours, from here), is snapped back from
center to the Dean, who tucks it under his
arm and fades deep behind his own line of
scrimmage. The question is: will he pass or
kick out? The Dean's punting toe is. reported to be in the pink, being still slightly
stained with blood from last year. Those
who have watched the Dean working out in
pre-season practice say he kicks a beautiful
end-over-end, starting with the lower end,
and has a deadly droop-kick.
Owing to the pressure of new registrants
and other duties, the Registrar's office will
not be mailing marks this year, and does
not wish to be pestered by people phoning
in full of their extra gin ration and hiccoughing a demand to know the worst.
"The first the student will know that his
grades are not satisfactory," explains Miss
Ruby Gilph, Registrar's assistant, "will be
when he is carried down to the basement
to our new guillotine. This year everything's
going to be clear-cut." »
Anyhow, it looks like a great game. The
crowd is starting to file in, taking Any Seat

from Lohengrin, and every girl is wearing
a big white lily on her chest. Get your

The Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Madam:
Part 2 Opinion on Immigration
draws attention to the apparent
discrimination of Canada against
a neighboring country, China,
with whom she had no quarrel,
firstly by charging a head tax of
9900 on each Chinese immigrant
and more recently by complete
exclusion of Chinese except for
students, diplomats, etc.
No one can deny that the Chinese in Canada have distinguished
themselves by industrious habits,
InteUectual keenness, high moral
standards and qualities of good
citizenship. Members of the Chinese race individually are usually
remarkedly charming and attractive. In the war which has Just
ended a body of young Chinese-
Canadians, mostly frob British
Columbia homes, have brought
honour to themselves and to Canada by their achievement in a
peculiarly specialized and hazardous line of military duty. Why
then, should Canada give so much
affront to the Chinese as to mark
it out for exclusion? That is the
question implicit in Panel 2.
The Answer is Race
When Canada's provinces were
united in 1867, though she was a
camparatively new country, a
national Canadian type was already emerging. It was then, and
has continued to be, tho conscious
or une neseious desire of the.' vast
majority of Canadians that their
pcirticul-ir typj .should prevail and
populate  their dominion.
While it should be mentioned
that eventually many Canadians
may boast the presence of an Iri-
quois warrior or a Bhckfoot princess in thc family tree, nevertheless thc Canadian type for a century and a half has been based
on two dominant strains: Gaulic
and Anglo-Nordic. Hence in deference to sentiment of the Canadian people, the policy of successive governments has been to encourage immigration of people
vliose racial origin and cultural
background, would bolster and intensify Canadian nationalism rather than weaken and diversify it.
Tlniei we (ind in Canada a tradi-
dition of "preferred countries" as
;•• urces of immigrants. Naturally
these countries are the democracies
of North-West Europe whose cultural, spiritual, political, and racial
traditions are most nearly akin to
Canada's. So sources of immigration other than European lands
have been regarded with less favor,
and non-European lands with actual disfavor.
This policy should not be interpreted as a manifestation of
Canadian belief in superiority of
their race. It was never intended
as an insult to Chinese, East Indians, Africans or Semitic peoples.
The inexcusably brutal program
of Nazi Germany conducted under
the guise of race superiority has
brought innocent and honest pride
of race into disrepute.
Race pride nevertheless still exists and is not limited to Canada.
The Mayas of Guatemala pride
themselves on the purity of their
Indian stock. In many African
tribes co-mingling with non-negroes is not permitted. Swedes
boast of having the; purest Nordic
stock. The Hebrew patriarch rejoices to behold the features of his
iace in his little grandson. Ana
proud Cathay has long regarded
all "foreign devils" as "barbarians."
The Canadians too are a proud
nation. This does not mean that,
like the Nazis, they think they are
better than other people, but they
still think they are just as good,
and they want to stay as they are.
Now just supose Canada, In order
not to offend the few thousand
Chinese already within her borders, had flung open the doors, not
to all Chinese, but, as is suggested
in Panel II, to the Chinese who
would make "good citizens." In no
time there would be ten, twenty,
fifty million good Canadian citizens of Chinese origin. The old
Canadian type would soon be in
the same position a* the original
Indian inhabitants.
The Canadian means no offense.
He does not feel superior to the
Chinese, he is merely conscious of
a difference. He just wants his
grandson to be the same type of
Canadian as his grandfather was,
and he doesn't condemn the Chinese in China for feeling that way

• IT ALL STARTED with the manly art of self-defence.
I was busily building up a set of biceps while a long-
limbed joe pounded the stuffings out of the end of a pair of
boxing gloves against my yielding jaw. This," they told me,
is a body-building physical training class.
There's nothing quite so in- ~~~"~~"~"~~""""""""~™~
vlgoratlng as a brisk workout in
the spacious gym, followed by a
cool, enervating shower. Or so the
pick-me-up physical culture magazines would have it.
After several minutes of loosen-
ing-up exercises I found that I
was faced with a broad-shouldered
monster who didn't like my face.
Oh well, I needed a new nose anyhow.
A quick run through the foil
and I was off—off to the caf for
coffee, s'help me.
But still I was haunted by the
thirst for revenge. So I sneaked
into the first girls Keep Fit class
that I could And. I was desperate. Supposing the fair sex was
being exposed to this treatment—
Gad, Sir! Then they really would
take over the placet
My worst fears were unconditionally confirmed. Miss Clay ia
training a bunch of lovely, sweet,
innocent young girls to be cool
calculating Amazons.
All this is accomplished by
means of complex routines designed to develop speed and coordination In various arts such as
face slapping. This last is done by
combined rhythm of extended arm
Hie chief exercise consists of
balancing on one foot and manipulating aU other limbs at the tame
time. This may seem Impossible
but 1 saw It done. After the ankle-
grasping toe-touching routine, I
could have collected enough hairpins to set up a bus stop stand.
Really, though, these fully-
clad misses on tha side-lines don't
need to glower so ferociously on a
poor insignificant college boy.
Perhaps they were just waiting
for fhe dancing class coming up.
Relays are nothing new, but
when they're played the way those
mad women went at lt—I blanched
with fear. So one sweet young
thing to wfhom more than one
young man's fancy will probably
turn this spring if not sooner, ups
and socks this other miss for disagreeing as to who won the relay
Things aren't so bad When the
guys and gals are separate. But,
since this 'is a co-educational in
stitution, they aren't always separate. In fact, they have a course
which is called Square and Ballroom Dancing, an organized battle
of the sexes.
Here we see the guys and gals
all mixed up. In spite ot the
guiding hands of Miss Salter and
Doug Whittle the mob is constantly mixed up.
They explain intricate square
dance routines, and the' explanation sounds quite simple. Don't
you believe it.
By the time one has finished
'Diving for the Oyster' one feels
that the road to being a full fledged contortionist cannot be any
rougher. 4
Of course, when Miss Salter
and Mr. Whittle demonstrate the
Conga Waltz it looks damn fine.
That is about the only thing one
can enjoy—watching THEM do it.
The dance consists of leaning forward as far 'as you can without
falling over, and then backwards.
Forwards isn't so bad—you will
land on your partner, but don't
fall back.
Two things In the course have
changed, supposedly for the better:
The number of girls has been Increased sufficiently so that femmes
and fellows can pair off more or
less exactly.
' And Instead of rushing madly
across the floor to get the one and
only, the mob marches around,
and you take what'comes.
Ah, the Physical Education Department. It's doing its damdest
—but we're too young to die.

• THE FLARE-UP of anti-
Japanese feeling in connection
with Dr. Sedgewick's address, and
the subsequent attack on the state,
ments made by the SCM indicate
that it is time for a review of the
facts. This article will deal, in
the main, with the conditions
which existed at the time when
the lepatriation forms were presented to the Japanese-Canadians.
These are the facts as we have
learned them from people who are
in "lose touch with the situation,
and are uncolored by any personal
prejudice. Anyone who finds it
difficult to accept this statement
should investigate the situation
and attempt to discover the facts
before forming an opinion.
The registration of all those
Japanese-Canadians who wish to
be sent to Japan at the end of the
war took place in the early spring
of the year. Here are the conditions of the signing:
All those who were age 16 or
over were required to indicate
their choice of either signing the
repatriation forms and returning
to Japan at the end of the war or
of being immediately relocated in
Eastern Canada. They were given
three days in which to decide.
Those who did not wish to go to
Japan were given no guarantee of
jobs or accommodation in their
new locations. Furthermore, they
were warned that they must be
prepared to be regarded with antagonism by residents of the Eastern provinces. No provisions were
made for their resettlement after
the war, although the agreement
between the government and the
provinces stated that they would
not be allowed to remain in Eastern Canada at the termination of
the war. On the other hand
those who signed the repatriation
forms were to be allowed to remain in their present locations until the end of the war. which was
then a very vague and apparently
distant date. They were allowed
to keep their jobs, and, most im
portant, they were led to believe
that the repatriation forms were
not binding and could be cancelled
at any time.
Faced with these alternatives
many of them were at'a loss as
to what to do. In some cases the
parents had signed to go back to
Japan, and the children, not wishing to be separated from their
fathers and mothers, signed also
in order that they be allowed to
remain with them. In some cases
illness in the family made an immediate move impossible, so there
was no alternative but for them
to sign. Many were lulled into a
false sense of security by the belief that they could cancel their
requests for repatriation If action
were taken to deport them on the
strength of it. The prospect of
another move to an unfamiliar
part of the country with the accompanying insecurity and possible danger was unpleasant, and
many signed not because they
wanted to go to Japan but because
they did not wish to go back east.
Of late, much attention has been
drawn to the fact that the large
majority of those who have requested cancellation did so after
September 2, the day on which the
peace was signed. The fact that
the war wm over on August 15 is
ignored. It is obvious that those
who wished to cancel their requests for repatriation did not become aware of the immediate need
to do so until recently, in the light
of the frighteningly rapid developments that have taken place.
It might be well to add that
there are no inherent qualities
which distinguish the character of
a Japanese person from that of
any other race. It is true that
many of the Japanese, like those
of the' minority groups in Canada
have shown a reluctance to learn
the language and to accept the
customs of this country. However, the RCMP will support the
statement apart from the small
group who were Interned at the
outbreak of the war there has
been no evidence of disloyalty on
the part of the Japanese In
It is the duty of every free-
thinking student to look at the
problem in terms of the facts, and
not in terms of rumour, hearsay
or personaly feelings, and to advocate policies for the solution of
this problem which will not betray the principles of justice for
which we have just fought. This
is a situation in which our democratic institutions are on trial
''Canada's two most popular characters
together again for your good cheer."

The Editor
Dear Madam:
Your December 1 issue brought
us another of a long lino of letters
which berate Artsmen for lack of
"faculty spirit," which seems to
bt so desirable. I think Mr. Winter might find that this "spiritual
poverty" springs from a lack of
common interests among Artsmen,
rather than from a lack of glandular tone. For instance, Johnny
D is majoring in Chemistry and
minoring in Math and Physics,
while Susie Q is majoring in
History and minoring in Sociology
and Psychology; they are two ships
that don't even pass in the night.
Students in the 2nd and 3rd year
of Applied Science, (Nurses excluded), however, obtain over
95'; of their units in "case".courses, which are taken by all. "Doc
Smith," "Prof. Gage" and "the
Dean's course" provide experiences
treasured by every Scienceman. I
don't think it will be denied that a
Scienceman's "spirit" is at its
zenith in his 3rd year, when he is
in the ranks of those running the
famous obstacle course consisting
cf Math 6, Physics 5, and CE 31, as
well as sundry other morsels.
No, as long as the Arts Faculty
embraces such a wide category of
students, I doubt if such hetro-
genous fuel can kindle much of a
flame in such matters as class
Between you and me, Madam
Editor, I think the genus Scienoe-
man actually pulled off a clever
one at last Thursday's fiasco. This
does not alter the fact that attempts to stir up rioting, while
indictable enough at any time, are
especially ungenerous while crowded conditions on the campus render the administration of the university such a difficult task.
Yours truly,
E. L. Affleck.

• A COUPLE OF CAUSTIC CO-EDS accosted me t'other
day. According to them, I'm not giving the campus gals
a break. Crashing the blissful peace of The Ubyssey's sports
department, they demanded headlines on the sports page,—
or my neck.
It's obvious that women are invading the last sanctums of
the domineering male. All through the ages they have striven
to equal their counterparts in various fields of endeavour.
But this is the climax.
Gals of the weaker (?) or opposite sex have the gall to
think they can be equal, or even superior, in the line of
sports. And the horrible part of it is that they will probably
Down through the long and interesting pages of history
we find that the man has always been the higher animal.
And we have reason to believe it was the same in pre-historic
days.   He could probably spit farther than his mate.
Rome Wat Never Like This
Men did all the hunting, fishing and fighting. Men did
all the discovering and most of the inventing. If this is
doubted by any reader, let him look at the records.
As early as 711 BC there is proof of my statements. In
that year a Greek, who strangely enough was a philosopher
on the side, knocked three seconds off the world's record for
10 consecutive backward somersaults, previously held by
Miss Daphne Q. Xerxes of some ancient city, no fixed address.
From that time forward, it is all one glorious record of
It was on New Year's Day, 222 AD, that a Roman, whose
name is not recorded, slew without mercy a woman pitted
against him between halves of the annual Calisthenium Bowl
The fact that the woman was hog-tied before the fight
gave the Roman a slight edge, but this was made up for by
the fact that men in those days had to carry heavy swords
and armour.
It  Happened In Singapore
As we idly flip through the pages of history, our eyes are
arrested by a notice on page 743 AD to the effect that a
drooling contest staged in that year was won by a swain
name of Gottreid the Goth. He managed to eke out a victory
over his opponent, Gertie the Goon, by at least 26 ounces.
Here is achievement indeed.
But the crowning glory came at the turn of the 11th
century when fans from all over the world gathered at the
international sports convention in Singapore. The athletic
enthusiasts cheered bravely, waved huge wine flasks, and
finally leaped to their feet shouting wild praises for one Ah
Ben Tankt, a Persian.
Ah Ben is said to have proven the male superiority that
year by beating again and again the reclining statue of a
woman, and daring all women present to make something
of it.
So great was the man's confidence, and so sure his courage,
and so marvelous his physique, and so few were the women
present that he was not challenged once during the whole
display of bravery.
Joshua Q. Cornhusk Failed
After this record, there is no mention of male domination
until the year 1777 when the renowned Scottish sportsman,
Byrrron Q. MacNelson was the winner of a sport event which
caught the fancy of the whole western world.
Down one on the last hole, he sank a 286-foot putt for a
girdle which gave him the Dewar & Sons Silver Mug, symbol
of world golf supremely. He defeated Miss Geraldine
Divotter one up, and he was two up on everybody on the
19th hole. This was indeed a world-shaking triumph. Man
could again hold up his head in pride.
The turn of the tide was hinted at just eight years ago when
the redoubted Joshua Q. Cornhusk of that famous mid-
western town of Peoria, Alaska, failed to take a clear margin
of victory over his rival, Miss Muggsy McSwiggensnort of
The judges were forced to call it a tie, for Miss McSwiggensnort was seen throwing the steer seven inches farther than
the Alaska all-star.
The tide has turned indeed, and the final blow has been
dealt. The sports department is in hysteria, and it is rapidly
spreading through the male staff of the rest of The Ubyssey,
Soon the whole campus will be in an uproar. First thing we
know, women will form a union. So run, men, run. All
is lost!

• UBC's    soccer    teams    again
showed that they are leading
contenders ln the Vancouver and
District League. In the feature tilt
at Larwill Park, Varsity was edged
2-1 by Norvans, while on the campus UBC swamped Pro-Rec Maple
Leafs 5-1.
Saturday, at Larwill Park, was
just another one of those jinx days
for the gold-shlrted Varsity men
as they outdid the Shipbuilders in
every department except scoring.
It was the same old story — lack
of finish in front of the goal.
For the first 25 minutes the
Varsity forwards romped all
around the Norvan goal without
putting the ball through. Then
centre forward Harry Kermode unleashed ' a scorcher that bounced
off the bar only to be kicked in
by alert winger Pat Campbell.
A few minutes after Varsity
scored its marker, Bernie Keeley,
Norvan winger, pushed in the tying counter past goalie Bob Wilson.
No sooner had the ball been
centred than Mario Christiano,
Norvan's grey-haired star, booted
a long one into the corner that put
Norvans in the lead and that
proved to be the winning goal,
The second half started and
ended with the score in Norvans'
favor 2-1.
Here on the campus, the second
place UBC eleven gained ground
on the league-leading South Hill
bunch who were held to a draw.
The UBC gang was travelling from
start to finish.

• VARSITY THUNDERBIRDS, with Bob Croll and halfback Johnny Wheeler leading the way, coasted to an
easy 20-6 victory over UBC at Varsity Stadium on Saturday.
This still leaves the 'Birds in a deadlock for first place with
the Vets, who romped over ex-Britannia to the tune of 17-9
at Brockton Oval. »
With but three tilts remaining
for each club in the Miller Cup
Series, the Birdmen and the Vets
appear to have the edge over the
other teams in the loop with the
possibility of Meralomas copping
the silverware if the leaders falter.
Although UBC put up a spirited
battle in the first half of their
struggle with Varsity, they were
definitely outclassed as the Varsity
backfield ripped through the
crumbling defences of their opponents to pile up huge gains and
score almost at will.
Bob Croll, brilliant inside three,
and veteran Johnny Wheeler led
the onslaught with three , tries
•piece. After a somewhat disappointing start this year, Croll may
well prove to be the player of the
Only last week Wheeler received
a slight head concussion but there
was nothing wrong with him as
he ran through the UBC team to*
chalk up nine points. It was the
first time the dependable veteran
had scored since the middle of last
Varsity led 9-3 at the half on
tries by Croll, Wheeler, and wing-
man Hec Rossetti. Sandy Martin
scored for UBC.
Arne Teasdale closed the gap to
9-6 for the underdogs but Wheeler
and Croll both crossed into the
end zone for Varsity to put the
game on ice. Hartt Crosby made
the only convert of the game after
one of Croll's scores, from well
cut in front to finish off the
Keeping pace with the Thunderbirds, the Veterans, although
under-manned through numerous
injuries, battled out a 17-9 decision over last place ex-Britannia.
It was the Vets' sixth win of the
year against but one loss while the
E'rits lost their seventy straight.
• SCORING   STAR. -   Johnny
Wheeler, who was injured last
week, returned to lead his Varsity
rugger mates to a lopsided win
over UBC on Saturday. He was
one of the stars of the game,
scoring three times and starting
most of the other scoring plays.
