 ARMY   LIFE   THEME   FOR   RED   CROSS
Promise Pulchritude
At Dutch-Treat Do;
Pep Meet Jan. 22
•   CAMPUS GLAMOUR will be a feature of the chorus
for the Red Cross ball to be held on January 23 at the
Commodore. Army life is the theme of the chorus, and army
songs will be a specialty presentation.
More Than
• One Man's
Opinion
BY JACK FERRY
e^^mmmmr^tammmemi^KeW^^tm^^m^e^^KKeW^m
• THIS IS the other side
of the question discussed
in "One Man's Opinion" by
Andy Snaddon and in the
editorial "What Japanese
Problem?" by Leslie Bewley
in last Friday's Ubyssey.
Had not those artlclet appeared,
I, aa well as many others on the
oampua who think aa I do, was
quite content to have the Ubyssey
remain aloof from the squabble.
Inasmuch as Japanese had been
removed from the C.O.T.C, we
were content for the present while
Ottawa thought over the situation.
But my colleagues have seen fit
to present one side of the question
in columns that usually represent
the opinion of the university students o4 this province.
ADMISSION
Mr. Snaddon admits in his own
words that he is in no place to
criticize many of the people of
B.C. for their stand.
He telk us that he comes from
"a prairie dty where the 'Yellow
Peril' consists of a mere handful
of brown people." Is it any wonder
he can't understand why B.C. is
perturbed about 25,000 "brown
people"?
Then he leaves us smiling by
revealing that, although he thinks
our people ridiculous for not taking the Japs to their bosoms, he
politely wishes to let us know that
Alberta wants no part of them.
Mr. Snaddon apparently Is in no
position to understand the situation on the Coast.
During the worst years of the
depression, we could have told Mr.
Snaddon that the prairie people
wore ridiculous in claiming that
their farmers toad received a raw
deal from the government and financial centres of the east. We
could have told him there was
nothing to worry about. We could
have told him that Ottawa had the
situation under control, that nature
would eventually adjust things,
and that no corrective measures
were needed.
. Mr. Snaddon could then have
told us that we had better mind
our own business until we knew
Whereof we spoke.
I wouldn't be surprised if I had
Just passed on a hint.
IL'. Bewley's editorial is more
serious. It took the step of inserting the collective nose of the students of U.B.C. into the discussion
now taking place between representatives of B.C. and the Dominion government.
I read the editorial "What Japanese Problem?" with amazement.
Then I read it again and when I
had done so I wondered why it
was not titled "What Japanese?''
or "What Fifth Column", or "What
War?"
He takes the view that the Japanese in B.C. have full allegiance
to Canada. He prefers not to think
of them as having any connections
with the other Japs, the naughty
Japs, in other parts of the world.
For this reason, it seems, he says
we have nothing to fear and should
be thoroughly ashamed of ourselves for mistrusting any of them.
This is strange when compared to
the record.
THE RECORD
"For more than thirty years now
we have had a considerable Japanese population here. By lower
living and labor standards the Japs
managed to work their way Into
many key industries, especially the
coast fisheries. They multiplied
rapidly. Their sons and daughters
were sent to this country's schools,
and also to their own schools where
they studied texts supplied by the
Government of Imperial Japan.
Many of the first Japanese to arrive still speak only their native
tongue. Many younger Nipponese
were sent back to Japan in the
last ten years to study at Japanese universities, where also for
the past ten years has been taught
the doctrine of Nippon as Ruler
of the World.."
"They settled on the coast, especially near defense posts. Many of
the Japanese ardently took up the
study of short-wave radio and out-

DUTCH TREAT
The whole of the $4.50 a couple
admission charge will not fall on
the head (and pocket book) of the
men this year. The affair is strictly Dutch Treat as far as campus
sales go.
Free tickets will be given to the
boy and girl selling the most pasteboards. All those desiring to sell
tickets are requested to get in
touch with Shirley Wlsmer, Graham MoCall, or Bob Rose.
The north-west corner of the
Arts building will be the scene of
U.B.C.'s first balloon barrage, Wednesday, when officials in charge
of the Greek Red Cross Dance, let
loose 300 gaily-coloured balloons.
Within four of them are contained
passes to the Charity Ball Operations are scheduled for 1:00 p.m.
RAFFLE TRIZE
Raffle tickets are being sold by
all sorority and fraternity members. Grand prize is a brown squirrel coat donated by J. R. Pop.
Contrary to notation on the tickets
there are fifty, not Just thirty-five,
other prizes.
Other universities all across Canada will be holding similar affairs the same evening, and rivalry will run high. Last year U.B.C.
brought in a grand total of 82,000
and the other Universities will be
striving to surpass this sum.
PopularCOTC
Officer Dead;
Sgt. A. Linde
• THE DEATH December 15 of
Sgt. A Linde, former Orderly
Room Sgt for the C.O.T.C, has
been keenly felt by the many students who knew him since he came
to the campus last March. Struck
down by a truck while he was
boarding a street car, Sgt. Linde
died in hospital as a result of injuries.
Sgt. Linde served overseas in
the last war with the 188th battalion. He leaves a wife and three
children, one of whom is in the
Air Force.
Sgt Linde's position is now filled
by Staff Sgt. Fish of the 16th Canadian Scottish. Sgt. Fish served
from 1914 to 1918 with the original
16th, being wounded five times.
NOTICE: Sponsored by the Women's Undergraduate Society, a
second Informal dance for the air
force stationed at the university
will be held Saturday, Feb. 17, in
the Brock Hall from 9 to 12.
Co-eds wishing to attend may obtain tickets for thirty-five cents
from members of the executive.

UBC Has Won McGoun
Once In Sixteen Years
"The Rivals"
Thespians
Spring Play
• THERE'LL BE some rivalry
going on in the Players' Club
in more ways than one next week.
Announcement was made that the
Spring production of the club this
year will be "The Rivals" by Richard Brinsley Sheridan.
Parts will be distributed to
members of the club today in
the Green Room. Try-outs will bo
held in the Auditorium next Monday afternoon, and as soon as the
cast is decided upon, it'll be down
to a lot of hard work for the chosen few.
Mr. Sam Payne has been asked
to direct the play this year.
Library Museum
OpenOnRequest
• STUDENTS DESIRING to view
the Polynesian Exhibit can do
so by making application at the
Librarian's Office, Room B. Since
the recent retirement of Mr Bill
Tansley as curator of the collection, no one has been appointed
to take charge of this vtuuab!-
display.
In a recent conversation, however, President Klinck announced
that several applications for the
position of curator are under consideration, and it is expected that
an appointment will be made it
the near future.
• PARLIAMENTARY FORUMITES will have another
chance to establish the reputation of this University in
western Canadian debating circles on Friday when they take
on members of the University of Manitoba in the annual
McGoun Cup Classic.
"Live And Kicking" Is
Verdict On Red Cross Show
•   THIS IS YOUR weekly report on the progress of U.B.C.'s
extremely popular and widely-followed charity project,
the Red Cross chorus. Up to date, the verdict is: "live and
kicking", more "kicking" than "live".
With tortured torsos grimly go- ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
ing through the motions of the
French can-can, kicking high every clay to "1 2 3, 1 2 3," 12 dazzling dazzlers are destined to produce something extra in Varsity
entertainment.
U. B. C.'s flora dora girls have
mastered the first step and are
now on the second The music Ls
the tantalising "Latin Quarter" and
when sung by  12 naughty soub-
rettes, wearing the typical can
can costume of black stockings and
so forth, the effect is — well.
Of course, there's also Connie
Dierssen out front as a sort of
chorus-girl-in-chief and Bunny
Arm's sultry singing as added attractions, but. boy, with that
bunch, who needs added attractions?
Their record up to the present
time has not been impressive. In
the sixteert years that U.B.C. has
been in the League, they have
only won once. In 1938, after eleven straight losses, a team consisting of Alex Macdonpld, Stewin
Robertson, Harold Rome, and Morris Belkin, brought the cup triumphantly home to glisten in our
Library for one short year.
As they had done so well, the
same team was selected the next
year, but alas, their luck did not
hold, <nd the Cup has not been
seen at U. B. C. since.
Following up the history of
these champion debaters, the
Ubyssesy discovered that Alex
Macdonald is now a law student
at Osgood Hall in Toronto, Stewin
Robertson is a professor of Social
Science in California, Harold Rome
is in business in the city, and
Morris Belkin is publisher of the
Point-Grey News Gazette.
Interesting is the departure made
this year from the usual subject
of world peace. The resolution
last year was "Resolved— That
the recognition of a system of international law, enjoying primacy
over national law, offers the best
hope of a permanent world peace."
This year's subject ls "Resolved—
That Canada, after the war, adopt
a policy of extensive immigration "
Arvid (Bill) Backman and
Bob Morris will meet debaters
from the University of Manitoba
In the University Auditorium on
Friday evening, January 16, at
8:15. This is a pass feature.

U.ofW.Lad
Unperturbed
By U.S. War
• WHEN NEWS hit the University of Washington that the
draft age might be lowered to 18,
thereby making more than 3000
students eligible for the army,
there was one male student who
remained unperturbed.
He was 13-year-old Alexander
Hull, a veritable child prodigy. He
started university last year at the
age of twelve, the youngest student on the campus. Alexander
never went to grade school, but
was taught by his parents till he
was nine and then took a placement test that put him into second year of High School.
The 18-year draft age has not
come into effect in the United
States as yet, so for the present
the University of Washington coeds will not have to worry about
their supply of men being drained
to 13-year-old Alexander Hull.
WUS Gives
Profits To
War Fund
• ESTABLISHING a policy of al
location of the proceeds from
functions sponsored by it, the
Women's Undergraduate Society
passed a motion at their meeting
Monday noon placing proceeds
from all future events other than
Hi-Jinx and the Co-ed Ball in the
University War Work Fund.
Traditional policy of contributing profits from Hi-Jinx and the
Co-ed Ball to the Furnishing Fund
for Brock Hall will be continued
this year. These events will be
held this year on January 29 and
February 26.
Reporting on the War Work
Committee, chairman Brenda Phillips urged more girls to turn out
to work in the Red Cross Rooms.
Chairman of the meeting, Lois
Nicholson, WUS president, spoke
for the waiver campaign and asked for the co-operation of the
women students.
Mere 340
Sign Red
Cross Slips
• Responding to this year's waiver campaign Initiated at the
Alma Mater Society Meeting last
Wednesday, 340 students have contributed to the Red Cross funds
by signing over returnable caution money.
This figure represents leas than
one half the number of waivers
submitted last year when 22084.45
was realized from seven hundred
students' caution money, and only
one third of the nine hundred
waivers received from the 1938-40
campaign.
This apparent decrease in students' interest in the Red Cross
cause is a contrast to the success
of the Mile of Pennies Drive and
the results of the Self Denial Days
held before Christmas.
Proceeds from the penny drive
totalled $526.26 and the Self Denial
Days netted $326.13.

... the Ubyssey hastens to tender
it's apologies to Prof. F. G. C.
Wood, trusting that no irreparable
damage has been done as a result
of what now appears to have been
a misquotation.
In spite of our informant's assertions, we unreservedly accept
Prof. Wood's denial that:
1. English 2 classes were lucky
to have an intelligent person like
himself in front of them, and
2. Many students are In the last

UBC Sheriff Cracks Down
On Local Speed Maniacs
•   TWENTY-FIVE speeders in the last week, four a day
on the average, have been apprehended recently by Constable Orchard.
Determined to prevent accidents
at U.B.C, Constable Orchard has
given all the offenders warnings,
but told the Ubyssey that there
may not be a first warning to
some and cerainly not a second.
Two offences will bring fines
starting at $10.
"The Police Department is cracking down on speeders, owing to
the fact that there are too many
casualties In Vancouver and I'm
doing the same," said Constable
Orchard. "I advise all students to
get up five minutes earlier and
thus avoid that 8:30 rush"
U. B. C.'s traffic officer also advised drivers to leave a little more
space between their car and the
car in front when driving on the
road. Fifty feet is the safest distance between two cars driving at
30 m. p. h. Page Two-
THE   UBYSSEY
■Tuesday, January 12, 1942
• From The Editor's Pen
» » »
We Priviledged Few
One short disastrous month has passed
since Japan pronounced upon herself an ultimate death sentence and plunged us on
the Pacific Coast intp the front line of a war
whose ending is far beyond the dark horizon. One month which has seen some of
our childhoocTplaymates and school chums
meet an unknown fate in the defence of
Hong Kong and the enemy forces steadily
advancing in British and American territories of the Orient. One month in which
British Columbians have worked feverishly
to place themselves in a position "to meet
any attack,"
The new war changes the whole complexion of life at the university. Before
Christmas we were fortunate students, far
removed from the actual war zone, doing
our bit to raise money for charitable organizations while obtaining an education under
almost peacetime conditions. Now we are
extremely fortunate to be attending this institution at a time when enemy craft might
conceivably be hovering off Point Grey.
Students here should realize fully the
significance of their position. They should
realize that more than ever we must throw
our energies towards making final victory
an accomplished fact as soon as possible.
This is without doubt our most important
task now.
How can we, the privileged few still imbibing the theories of "higher education"
(ironic phrase), put our hand to the wheel
of Canada's war machine?
Many of our fellow-students have de
cided that they can best serve by going on
active service.
Those of us still at U.B.C. have during
the past two years become accustomed to
military training and have made a commendable .i'.art at building up a "student war effort." Last year we raised roughly $5200
for the Red Cross. If returns from the efforts
of the fall term are any criteria, we should
gather a much greater sum this year. The
Mile of Pennies Campaign showed that at
last the whole campus is united in our war
program.
Now we have returned for another session—and the need of a united front is more
urgent than ever before. What are we going
to do? So far 300 students have signed
waivers transferring the remainder of their
caution money at the end of April to our
Red Cross funds. 300 out of 2500. Let us
hope this poor response is due to the fact
students haven't yet got over the Christmas
holidays.
But now we are in our second week of
the term. The after-effects should have vanished by this time. Every man and girl
should be ready to throw his o* her weight
into the efforts lined up by the War Aid
Council.
The Waiver Campaign is on, this week's
Self-Denial Day is scheduled for tomorrow,
the Red Cross Ball is coming up next week.
The sooner we hit our stride, the better our
total effort will be. Remember, it is only
because other young fellows are over in England and Egypt and Malay and up and down
the B.C. coast right now that we are able
to attend university. "Tuum est."
Looking Ahead
Students must not let the pressing problems of the present entirely overshadow
their view of the future. U.B.C. will continue to function, and so will our System of
government, second to none in Canada.
At the last meeting of the Alma Mater
Society ratifications to the system of elections proposed by the committee set up for
the purpose of revising it were accepted by
the students. This means that the election
for the office of President is only three weeks
away. Nominations for this most important
position on the campus must be in to the
A.M.S. office by Wednesday, January 28,
just two weeks from tomorrow.
Extra special thought should be given
in ohoosing the students who will be the
leaders of the Alma Mater Society next
year. The times are getting more difficult
with each passing month. Filling the jobs
of Student Council is a task not to be considered lightly.
The Mummery •.. * **«
For many years I did my Christmas
shopping riding up and down in elevators
biting my finger-nails, and hoping it wasn't
true what they said about Santa Claus.
It became increasingly apparent, however, that when people gave me bilious
purple ties suffering from acute spotted
fever, they expected something more in return than a dirty look. Last year, therefore,
I bought all my friends gladioli bulbs, the
gladioli bulb store being the only one I could
enter with any appreciable degree of safety
to life and limb. The reception of the bulbs
was so Impressive that this year I decided
I had better buy something else, even
though it meant breaking a bill.
Fortified by an extra amount of Mosby's
Tonic, I flung myself into the revolving door
of a downtown department store. Then I
flung myself into it again, and that time I
made it, swinging in behind a burly house'
wife to run interference for me, and fighting a fine dirty fight until I reached the
perfume counter.
"Have you got any perfume?" I asked
the girl behind the counter.
"What about 'My Sin'?" she asked belligerently.
"Have we met someplace?" I queried,
trying to remember her face.
" 'My Sin' is a scent," she explained
testily. "It's two dollars a dram."
I winced. She sprayed some of her sin
in the air and I snuffed up about five cents
worth.
"Haven't you got an old smell hanging
around called 'My Slight Misdemeanor' or
something?" I asked, "at about a buck a
pint?"
"The garden sprays are on the third
floor!" she snapped, walking away.
I shrugged Aunt Martha off my list, and
steeled myself for the real test of the day.
I approached the counter cautiously to leeward, sidling up to where the sales-girl stood.
"I'd like to see your lines in ladies'
underwear," I muttered, out of the corner
of my mouth.
She misinterpreted my manner.
"Don't get personal, bub!" she snarled.
"Yes, ma'am," I croaked, scuttling away
into the crowd.
I gulped down a drink of pineapple juice
to calm my nerves, pulled myself together,
and hurled back into the fray. I came up
on the other side of the stall.
"What do you sell here?" I asked warily.
"Why, ladies' underwear!" replied this
girl, somewhat surprised.
"Show me some!" I whispered, peering
around, on the alert for approaching boy
friends.
"What kind would you like?"
"It's not for me, it's for my sister," I
said impatiently.
"Well, what kind would your sister
like?" she laughed. "A slip?"
"Show me a slip!" I nodded desperately.
"What size?"
I wiped the perspiration from my brow.
"You mean they come in sizes?" I mumbled hoarsely.
"Yes/' she said.
"Just a minute," I groaned, hurrying
off for another slug of pineapple juice.
"What have you got that don't come in
sizes?" I asked weakly.
"How about some Snuggles?" she suggested. 	
"What are they for?" I parried suspiciously.
She gave me a sickly smile.
"Why, you wear them, of course. They're like Huggies, only longer."
I loosened my collar.
"Like Huggies, only longer, eh?" I nodded. "Something like Stanfield's Red Label
longs, maybe?"
"She sighed wearily.
"How about a combination set?"
I shook my head nervously.
"This girl's too dumb to figure out a
combination," I muttered. "Look. Wrap up
some Snuggles, throw in a couple of Huggies, and then show me where I can get a
cheap psayer rug."
She went away to bundle up something
or other to get rid of me. But when she
came back her nose started to twitch
queerly.
"Say," she said, leaning over the counter, "what perfume are you using?"
I drew myself up.
"I am not using any perfume," I stated
crisply. "I was just over there . . . ."
"Hey Mabel! Come and smell this guy's
perfume! It's cute!"
"My dear, young lady!" I protested.
"What you smell is merely a demonstration
of 'My Sin', I . . . ."
But Mabel and several eager cohorts
were bearing down from the east, so that
retreat seemed the wisest move. I stalked
away, only to hear a stentorian bellow behind me:
"Hey! You forgot your panties!"
At least three hundred people stopped
dead in their flight, staring to discover who
had forgot his panties. There was no going
back, now; no return, ever. I strode out into
the rain, with head high and firm step, I
knew where I was going.
New, friends, here's the way to get the
best results with those gladioli bulbs ....

• LETTERS TO
THE EDITOR
Editor, the Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
I read with profound Interest
your recent article on the Japanese situation and I would like to
ask you a simple question which
in the course of time may become
a grave danger. What would the
Japanese of British Columbia do
if an army of fifty thousand Japs
landed on our coast? Would they
link arms with the Canadians and
Chinese to repel the invaders or
would they stab us in the back?
Before you answer this question
read back on the history of the
countries Germany and Italy have
overrun. What did the German
and Italian nationalists do? Did
they fight off the Invading horde3
or did they stab the country of
their adoption in the back?
Yours truly,
C. WOODWARD.
• A Year Ago..
• THE PUB became the centre
of interest the week ending
January 17, 1941, as it became a
Date Bureau for the Red Cross
Ball . . . Blondes and redheads
were especially desired and many
beautiful friendships were begun.
. . The Players' Club revival of
"Pride and Prejudice" earned five
curtain calls and $350 for the Red
Cross ... Dr. A. F. B, Clark personally bounced seven "slackers"
from his French Z class . . . Weirdly garbed females chased more
weirdly disguised males who attempted to crash the annual Coed Hi-Jinx party . . . Junior member of Council, Charlie Naah, described their spirit as "lousy"
when the Frosh class could rally
only 28 students for their class
elections. Bud Fairgrieve was
chosen frosh proxy . . . Saskatchewan debaters defeated orators
from B.C. as they won the McGoun Cup for the eighth time in
sixteen years.
LONG, TOO LONG AMERICA
Long, too long America,
Travelling roads all even and
peaceful you learn'd
from joys and prosperity only,
But now, ah now, to learn from
crisis of anguish,
advancing,  grappling with  direst fate and recoiling not,
And now to conceive and show to
the world what your
Children en-masse really are,
For who except myself has yet
conceived what

.The
Gatepost
BY LIONEL SALT
The other day I wrote a letter
to a friend of mine, a student at
the University of Washington. Because I thought it might interest
you I reproduce it here:
Dear Paul:
I was very glad to get your letter, telling of the feeling In the
States over the new turn of events, but you will pardon me if
I seem to doubt the truth of much
of what you snid. Not that I question you, at all, just that I have
become leery of reading about nations suddenly becoming attuned
to war.
I can only judge from personal
experience, of course, but don't
you think much of the feeling
which you interpret Into the typical American home belongs only
on the front and editorial pages
of your newspapers.
HYSTERIA
There is always a certain amount of hysteria in a country that
has just gone to war, and you
are experiencing that pKase of
development now. But please do
not be deluded into thinking that
it is honest. It isn't.
As a university student in a
country at war, you are going to
be subjected to many confusing,
and disillusioning problems, which
unfortunately you will try to solve
honestly.
Frankly, from my own experience, you are bound to fail, just
as anyone of your 11,000 fellow
students will fail, if, as I say, he
approaches the problem honestly.
There is no surer path to confusion of the mind in the present circumstances of time than to
think honestly about those circumstances. It just doesn't work
out.
EXPERIENCE
You ask me what I did, and
what you should do. 1 sat down
to ponder over the problem in
1939. My advice to you in 1942 is
not to think. Do what you want
to do instinctively, without any
of the careful consideration your
authorities are probably urging
you to take.
Do not think about it. Refuse
to consider it as a student. It
you want to join up, join up. If
there isn't a feeling welling up
within you that you must kill
some Japanese, then by all means
don't try to conjure up one.
To think about it is to become
conscious of breathing. Once conscious of the act, it loses all its
naturalness, becomes forced, and
strange. The worst thing possible
that can happen is to force yourself to act because your thoughts
as a student led you that way.
You'd be surprised, Paul, if you
could see, as I have seen, th
number of fellows up here that
have forced themselves Into the
armed forces through the apparently simple and logical method
of thinking about the war as a
student
Why? Why, because when you
force yourself to think about It
there can only be the one answer.
If you don't arrive at that answer,
then, somewhere along the lino,
you have become aware of its inevitability and veered off.
CONFUSION
After all, here is your country
fighting for its existence. You are
a student studying at a state-fin-
a n c e d institution. Therefore
through a simple process of
thought, you arrive at the conclusion that you should join up.
Confusing, isn't it?
That's just what happens, as I
say, when you start to ponder
over the eventualities. As you can
easily see by reading over this
letter, my mind is confused, confused because I tried to think like
I thought a university student
should think.
Only there is no set way, if you
are honest And if you are honest,
there is only confusion.
So slaughter the Japanese if you
will, or better still become a conscientious objector. It will give
you a wonderful feeling — like
being a martyr.
Flip a coin to decide. I wish I
had — now I'm quite convinced
that I shall write war poetry.
Make with the martial music
mother and we'll all march in the
parade. (You see — the bitter
young student type . . . ).
—Lionel.
If I don't drive around the park,
I'm pretty sure to make my marK.
If I'm in bed each night by ten,
I may get back my looks again,
If I abstain from fun and such,
I'll probably amount to much,
But I shall stay the way I am,
Because I do not give a damn.
—Dorothy Parker.

New University
• VICTORIA COLLEGE may be
extended to become a full-
fledged university according to
unofficial reports from Victoria.
Officials of U.B.C. place little
credence in these reports. In the
first place such a move would involve a change in the University
Act which at present gives U.B.C.
the sole right of conferring degrees
in B.C.
Suggestions like the present one
have been current periodically for
several years to relieve the overcrowding at the College and at
U.B.C, by transferring the College
to the better facilities of the Provincial Normal School in Victoria
which has been sparsely attended
in recent years.

Apart from a few exchange papers which straggled in yesterday
morning, most of the C.U.P. and
American papers lying around the
Publications, office are December
issues. Special Christmas and
New Year numbers, most of them
printed in emerald green, arrived
from Dalhousie, the University of
Ontario, McMaster, Alberta, and
Idaho. Apparently U.B.C. is not
the only Canadian University to
choose blue and gold for its colours. Mount Allison University in
New Brunswick recently published a special Junior Class issue of
the Argosy Weekly with a broad

diagonally across the front page.
Here are the latest news items:
SEATTLE, WASHINGTON -
Approximately 1400 more men
from the University of Washington will register for active military duty February 16, under the
amended Selective Service Act.
The new order, setting the da'te
for men between the ages of 20
and 44 to register, will leave approximately 2630 University men
not yet registered.
Students at Washington are beginning to travel to University
by bicycle instead of by automo-
bile. One sophomore there predicts that within a few months
the whole campus will have adopted this method since bicycles
are cheaper to rim and "you can
still buy tires for them."
Washington University is also
becoming paper-conscious. On
their nightly rounds of the campus, janitors collect old magazines,
pamphlets and newspapers, to be
given to the Good Will industries.
In addition to paper collected by
this scheme, hundreds of books
and magazines donated by University professors and students
were turned over yesterday to the
nation-wide   Victory   book   cam
paign, and thus to all branches of
America's armed forces.
SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA.- "Honi
Solt," official organ of the Sydney
University Council, received a record moil in reply to its editorial
suggestion that lectures should be
given at the University on sex
problems. Opinions differ widely,
comments varying from such remarks as "Congratulations. Sex
education is needed," to such Invectives as "Purge the moron who
wrote that editorial" and requests
that the editor resign.
WINNIPEG, MAN.-"Swing and

Delegates
At Meet
by FRANK BERTRAM
• I'VE ALWAYS liked going to
conferences— to talk—to take
the weight of the world upon my
shoulders, so when the S.C.M. on
this campus asked Jim Melvin
and myself to represent them at
the 21st Anniversary Conference
at Aurora, Ontario, this Christmas my enthusiasm was unshackled.
Delegates from every university
in Canada were present along with
graduates who had been connected with the S.C.M. in their campus days. Alf Carlsen, foimerly
of the University Extension Department, was the graduate delegate from B. C.
ODD XMAS
The aim of the conference was
to redirect the action of the S. C.
M. in Canada by considering the
past and present work of the
movement and its bearing upon
the future. It was an effort to
think out clearly the task of the
student in war time and to see
the relationship between Christianity and the struggles of the
present day disrupted world.
DIVERGENT OPINION
Divergent opinions are characteristic of the membership of the
S.C.M. and this conference was
no exception. Christianity — Democracy — Fascism — were all
taken apart and discussed and reassembled by the delegates to the
satisfaction of themselves and the
consternation of others. There
, were, however, points of agreement. We all agreed that the S.C.
M. should have a national study
program and a more definite direction in its activities. We felt, because of our Christian compulsion,
that part of our aim must be to
implement democracy in Canada.
A more immediate and direct aim
was to support the fight against
all the things we call fascist.
The Undergrad group was particularly concerned with the function of the University in war time.
It was felt that we should cooperate with other groups in
bringing the university closer to
the war situation and thereby
having the university act as an
integral group in the war effort.
Student-staff co-operation with regard to curriculum, scholarship
and economic aid to the students
were considered essential.
These problems that so many
people ignore — the questions of
the war, of social change, of educational changes — the*e were
faced by students really concerned about them, and with the
conviction that individuals can
and must do something about
them if anything better is to result. Not other individuals, but
people like us must expend effort
to meet the demands of the present day.
— And far Into the night we
planned.
OPINION
(Continued from Page 1)
door photography. Innocence of
defense regulations brought them
into unfortunate and embarassing
scenes with the authorities. All
this time they maintained dual
citizenship—In Japan and In this
country—but always with the assurance that this was merely for
sentimental reasons. When members of the Japanese royal families
passed through this city, their
many compatriots of all generations turned out as one man to
yell "Banzai!" andl to wave tiny
flags of both Japan and our
country."
"Over a year ago their'ancestral home of but thirty years removed allied herself with Germany
and Italy. The Japanese here said
It made no difference to them. Our
people treated them kindly. Our
newspapers preached tolerance
said the situation was under control, and branded aa "Jap-batter*"
any citizens who dared to doubt
their loyalty. No, this alliance
made no difference."
"Even when an attack by Japanese forces on this country was
Imminent it made no difference."
"But a little over a month ago,
when the first Japanese transports
loomed off our shores, and the first
Japanese bombers roared overhead,
then it made a difference. Yes,
they became collectively in the
words of the United States Secretary of the Navy "the most effective fifth column in history."
NOT US, YET
No Mr. Bewley, this is not the
story of B.C.   Not yet.
This is the story of Hawaii, of
Davao in the Phillipines, of Northern Malaya.
Foiled Gigantic Hun Trap
•   A FAMOUS BRITISH STAFF OFFICER, Brigadier T.
N. F. Wilson told the C.O.T.C. on Saturday how leadership, discipline and stamina got the British troops out of
France in the fateful days of May 1940.
Making his address to hundreds
of Varsity trainees, Brig. Wilson
told the audience how the British
soldiers overcame clogged roads,
fifth columnists and superior equipment to reach the mole on the
beach at Dunkirk.
"Due to the superb discipline of
1he troops under junior officers,
British mobile equipment travelled
ninety miles along the flank of
the enemy under heavy fire and
lost only eleven men," he said.
DISGUISED SPY
The speaker told how at one
place a German spy, dressed in
the uniform of a British staff officer attempted to turn back his
brigade.
"The man kept saying "You
must surrender", "you must surrender". My major tried to shoot
him but I prevented him and I
have never regretted anything so
much since," added Brigadier Wilson.
Using a masterpiece of understatement he told how he "took
a rather poor view" of the fact
that someone shot at him with a
tommy gun. It was thought that
a parachutist had landed nearby.
The speaker told also how, when
they had twenty-four hours waiting to get off the beach at Dunkirk, they decided to play a round
of golf. His brigade had about the
worst time of all he said, because
they were the farthest away from
the beach fighting a rearguard
action.
LONG MARCH
"We were eleven miles away and
had to march at night because of
the very heavy bombing. When
you consider the fact that it was
dark only four hours and we
had to embark in the dark you
can see the difficulties."
It was finally done by taking
the troops off at a different point
on the beech, he added.
Brig. Wilson's brigade was the
rearguard to the first division of
the B.E.F. which in turn was the
rearguard for the whole British
army.
With the substitution of "German" for "Japanese" in most cases
this is tihe story of Norway, of
France, of the Netherlands, of Belgium, of Roumania, of Hungary,
and of Bulgaria.
Have you ever heard of those
places? Of course, they are all so
remote from B.C.
Even Senator Burton K. Wheeler now a.dmits "It CAN Happen
Here." Do you still say it cannot?
Why?  '   .
It's too bad, Mr. Bewley,™you
couldn't have heard last Saturday
the messages to the C.O.T.C. by
Captain Riddehough and by Brigadier Wilson of the B.EJV In
France. They told ua how even
until the last hour in the Lowlands that papers assured their
people "The situation is under control The dangerous elements (have
been rounded up. Do not fear."
After the last hour, the people
knew. They knew that the fifth
column comes over the road prepared by blindness.
RED HERRING
Finally I should like to refer
Mr. Bewley to one of the quotations he used, one of the more
effective red herrings dragged a-
cross the trail.. —"They should
all be rounded up first and investigated later."
I would remind him that that was
exactly what the British Government, which arose from Magna
Carta and later adopted the essence of the Bill of Rights, thought
in June, 1940, about dangerous elements in their islands. They did
"round up" all Germans and Italians when the threat of invasion
was at hand.
Invasion has not come but the
British have never regretted their
action. They have "investigated
later" and released all those found
loyal to the democratic cause. And
these same Germans and Italians,
who suffered imprisonment so that
Britain might be safer, do not resent the action. They are proud
to have been able to prove themselves. It did not make "natural
enduring, and hopeless enemies of
them."
We can at least be a little more
carefuL a little less trustingly
blind, here.
It's still trite, but still true, to
say "Better safe than sorry."

the history of their store they're
selling Mezzanine floor shoes on

of Main floor shoes. All shoes from

Tookes Take 'Birds For Seventh Beating
'Bird Defense Falls
Apart In Last Half
• EVEN WITH JIM SCOTT injected into the lineup, the
Varsity Thunderbirds failed to live up to their expectations and are still winless, dropping their seventh straight
contest, this time by a 50-28 count to Tookes on Saturday
night at the V.A.C. gym.
The 'Birds had been favoured by many people to cop
the tilt against Tookes. They had been idle since November
22 and with the return of Jim Scott to the fold, bigger and
better things were expected. On top of this not one man was
forced from the team by pressure of Christmas exams, which
establishes some sort of a record.
VARSITY LEAD FIRST HALF
The faithful who turned out Saturday night witnessed an exciting
game for the first half. Varsity
jumped into an early 7-3 lead with
baskets and free shots by Scott
and Barton, but Neal and Mathl-
son tied it up at 7 all.
Just before the first breather Jim
Scott sank another to put the
'Birds into the front 9-7. Varsity
were playing better ball than
had been seen in some of their
last year's contests and it looked
as if they had finally come to life.
The second quarter was Just
•bout as fast with Tookes in the
esad at the half by two points 17-
14. The game was getting a bit
rough and the Tookes checking
became much closer.
POOR 'BIRD DEFENSE
Then it happened. Tookes literally took the student defense
apart as they waltzed through for
fifteen points against three for the
Blue and Gold. George McConnell
and Jack Neal paced tnis attack
which put them far out in front,
never to be headed. The fourth
canto was a repeat of the third
with Varsity being outpointed 18
to 10 as they wound up on the
very short end of a 50-28 count.
Varsity's shooting and checking
were poor in the last half of the
game and a definite co-ordination
was lacking on the offense. Jim
Scott put'in a good show for himself in his first appearance as he
picked off 10 points putting him
top man for the Blue and Gold.
George McConnell was in his
usual form as his IS points puts
him top man for the evening and
increased his lead in the league
scoring race.
First Half Stars
McKechnie
Cup Game
Saturday, 17
• THE BIG BOOGIE PROBLEM
of the McKechnie Cup team
has finally been solved, or solved
in part at least, according to Athletic Manager Evann Davies. The
trouble has been that English
Rugger games and the Saturday
afternoon military parades didn't
jive.
So now, as a solution to the
problem, it has been suggested
thai if all the members of the Cup
squad take their Training at nights
for the rest of the year then they
will be able to play Saturdays.
The next McKechnie Cup game,
by the way, is this Saturday at
the Varsity Stadium when the
Blue and Gold team tackle the
Victoria fifteen. This tilt will be
the second gome in the McKechnie
series for the Varsity squad. They
lost the first game to Vancouver.

Swim Meet
On Friday
• IT SEEMS TO HAVE taken the
Fraternities to awaken spirit
on the campus as far as "Inter'
sports competitions are concerned
this year.
This Friday a Inter-Fraternity
swim meet will be held with most
of the Pin boys on the campus being represented
Managing the entire affair is the
bespectacled gentleman on the
right "Sportsman" Stu Madden.
Maury Van Vliet lends his sage
advice in supervising the meet.
FRAT - SPOTS
by willie
• INTER-FRATERNITY SPORTS got off to a big bang
Friday with the opening of the basketball schedule.
The Betas and the D.U.'s won their first games over the
Alpha Delts and Kappa Sigs respectively.
Tomorrow night at the gym three games will be played.
The Phi Kaps vs. the Phi Kappa Sigma's; the Fiji's vs.
the Phi Delts; and the Psi U.'s vs the Sigma Phi Delts.
• ON FRIDAY NIGHT another inter-fraternity sport will
be run off in the form of a swimming meet. This monstrous affair will take place at the Y.M.C.A. pool at 8:15
p.m.
Eight events will be strongly contested for; of which
there are: 20 yard Dash—Free Style, 40 yard Dash—Free
Style, 20 yard Dash Back Strock, 20 yard Dash—Breast
Stroke, Plunge for Distance, Candle Race, Relay—80 yards
—4 man team.
• ONE OF THE MAIN reasons that the inter-fraternity
sports is going to be successful is the fact that main
emphasis is placed on presenting a team. An example of
this is that a team gets 50 points for showing a team and
only 15 points for winning.
Under the auspices of Mr. M. L. Van Vliet, a vigorous
schedule has been outlined embracing nine sports. Yet to
come up are: Cross Country, Track, Badminton, Ping Pong,
Six-Man Football, and Softball.
• THE INTER-FRAT cagers have really got something to
shoot for this year.   "Nish" Chapman, retiring district
chief of the Beta Fraternity, donated a trophy to be passed
on each year to the winning team.

Harlem Globe Trotters Will
Trot Out Tricks Here Friday
•   YES, they're here again.
The Harlem Hoopers, the nation's most
entertaining basketball team and claimants
of the title "World Champions", appear on
the campus Friday noon to take on the
Canadian Cage Champs, the Thunderbirds.
When they stride into the gym Friday
at 12:00 sharp, the Globe Trotters! will be
upholding a reputation that isn't only amazing but actually real. They've been called
the most successful basketball team of all
time as far as winning games is concerned.
For a total of thirteen seasons, these coloured Harlem giants have won over eighteen
hundred games while losing only one hundred and thirty.
Mixing fun, and good fast basketball the
Trotters are reported better, faster and
trickier than ever this year. Although they
are carrying three new players this season
who are a little green the dusky demons
should really put on a show that will be
worth while. The new players are Roosie
Hudson, Everett and Bill Ford.
New leader and captain of the Harlem
hoopsters is big "Babe" Pressley who holds
a basketball in one hand as if it were an
apple. Pressley is rated as one of the most
deceptive and tricky players in the entire
basketball setup.
"Chuck" Jones, manager of the Hoopers, states he likes Vancouver and seems to
think the Varsity squad will prove a tough
fight.
With five men only on the official Harlem lineup no substitutes will be possible.
Game starts at noon, Friday. Admission
price is ten cents.

And that cleans up the matter.
