Those cynics among us who always beef
about everything in general and about the
value we DON'T get for our Student Passes
in particular, should take note of the formidable array of pass features on this week's

Tomorrow evening the Players' Club
will present their group of annual Christmas
plays in the Auditorium, to which all students are admitted on presentation of Student Passes.
The Special Events Committee arranged to bring W. L. McTavish, Vancouver
Daily Province editor, who recently returned
from a tour of Great Britain with a group
of Canadian editors, to give a talk on
his experiences Friday noon.
And finally, seniors will be admitted to
their class party Friday night at the Panorama Roof on their Passes.
Who said students don't get their
money's worth out of Student Passes?
On Backslapping
"The fourth building on the U. B. C.
campus constructed by student funds" was
the way our Chancellor described the new
Armories at the opening ceremonies on Saturday. And he went on to say that he and
the Board of Governors were proud of our
undergraduates' efforts because he did not
know of any other student body on the continent with such a record of achievement.
It is pleasant to receive compliments
like that once in a while, when we know they
are really deserved, just as much by the students who have gone from these halls as by
ourselves. From various quarters the Ubyssey has had suggestions that it should break
down and do a little more back-slapping
itself instead of always "riding the students"
to reach greater heights in the University
War Effort. These sources claim that this
sort of applied psychology would work much
better ln making students "take the lead
out" than the kind we have been using.
Very well, then—we shall start turning
over a new leaf by throwing a bouquet to the
girls who enticingly waved brightly painted
tins (and tags) under the noses of the student body to the tune of $52.50 on last week's
Self-Denial Day. The amount collected
shows a very substantial increase (maybe
the students have begun to realize our war
effort needed boosting) and if the girls can
persuade students to deny themselves that
much every week we will have almost
$1,000 from Self-Denial coffers alone come
next April.
Through the services of Canadian University Press, the Ubyssey is planning to obtain statistics from all campuses in Canada
showing how much per student they raised
for the war last year. When these figures
arrive we will present them for your inspection to see just how U. B. C.'s Red Cross
contribution of $5,200 (which amounts to
$2.00 per student) compares with the sums
collected by other student bodies.
We sincerely hope that we will be able
to pat ourslves on the back, saying that no
other university can present such a record.
Then, by the reaction coming from this sort
of applied psychology, we will be spurned
on to greater effort and raise twice as
much this year.
The Mummery   • • byja*..
The C. O. T. C, once described as the
only sick parade ever organized as a unit,
stood sagging expectantly, waiting for the
order to fall in.
Several enthusiasts fell in before the
command was given, and had to be carried
off to the showers, victims of anticipation.
But it was a beautiful sight. The cold
brilliance of the sunshine brought out to
the full the patriotic colours of the men:
red noses, white jowls, and blue lips. N. C.
O.'s were running about nimbly or as nimbly
as their tight trousers permitted. Then,
suddenly, the order rang out:
We shuffled into what we laughingly
called line, and waited breathlessly for the
command, "Stand Easy." Standing easy is
probably the one drill movement that we
can be said to have mastered, with the possible exception of the dismiss, or its little
brother, the break off.
"Take up your dressing, take up your
dressing,"  snapped  the  Sergeant,  testily.
I looked to see if my pants had fallen
down again.
I was pleasantly surprised that gravity
had not set in.
"Squaw, squaw HUP," barked the
Then he fastened me -with a steely
glare. ~~
Didn't you hear me say 'HUP'?" he
"Yes, Sergeant," I replied aimiably
"Have you ever thought of trying 'Turns'?
They say they're wonderful for acid indigestion: burps to you."
"And nuts to you!" he snarled, his eyes
gleaming evilly as they searched me for
unbuttoned pockets.
Then his face lit up with a grisly glow.
"Who told you that you could wear a
corsage today?" he hissed.
I blushed awkwardly.
"A lady friend of mine gave it to me,"
I admitted in a low voice. " I thought, seeing this was a ceremonial parade. ..."
"I don't care if it grew there, roared the
"And stand at attention!" he added.
"I am standing at attention! It's just
this converted barrage balloon I'm -wearing
that makes me look droopy."
"Brother, you would look droopy in a
sarong!" he gritted.
"Only from the back, only from the
back," I countered.
The Sergeant was obliged to retire from
action as the officers stalked to their posts.
It is always important to note when
your company is taken over by an officer.
For, whereas the sergeant-major may yell,
in a high falsetto:
"Company, stund ut hiss, Stund hlssy!
An officer may creep in unseen, and
bellow throatily:
"Company,    stind    hat     haze!
When you are expecting to be told to
"stund hissy," and somebody comes along
to tell you to "stind hazey," there is manifested that tendency toward both mental
and physical frustration which causes cadets
to pluck at the coverlets for days after a
Soon we were marchng down to the
stadium. Marching with the C. O. T. C. is
always a thrilling novel experience, as we
have more different steps than Fred Astaire
and Eleanor Powell combined. Last week
we featured a special khaki conga line, with
the primitive beat: one, two, three—skip,
one, two, three—skip, one,two, three—puddle, etc. With us, you either have rhythm or
you get trampled to death.
In the stadium, we watched about ten
minutes of rugby, and about forty-five minutes of bleacher blondes. Indeed, the men
of the Corps seemed to be more interested
in making plays than in watching them.
This brings up the question of the acquisition of a drum majorette for the C. O.
T. C. Once we have the majorette, we can
start thinking about the drum. This would
not only boost army morale, but also protect  civilian  women from  offensive  action.

A Mighty Problem
e THERE IS a great deal
of grumbling about lack
of leadership by the Federal
Government. But leadership, both in peace and war,
should not be limited to the
central government. Such
limitations can only be looked for in a totalitarian state
such as we are fighting.
Here, tho duties and responsibilities should be shored by nil the
governments of the country from
the provincial to thai of tho smallest hamlet, ancl by all leaders ot
opinion, of classes and groups, of
parties and of industry, cf labour
ond of the church. But In tho end
this question of leadership boils
clown to tho leadership thai A
given  by   the   individual.
In tho army and thc navy and
thc nir force grand strategy is laid
down by tho High Command, but
it i'i left to subordinate officers, to
the non-commissioned off'.ec is end
junior commissioned officers to
mi-ko it really effective. They can
make or mav tho finest tactical
scheme because they give leadership ond confidence to tho rank
ond file. A soldier does not follow his general but the man above
him to whom he looks for an example and leadership.
. That is tho way it should bo in
Canada. Everyone should be conscious that they nre giving leadership of some kind; either good or
bad. Good leadership is setting an
example for this war and for victory of enthusiastic industry to
get results In the war at hand; of
sacrifice of easy living and convenience so as to contribute to
victory. Are our provincial governments showing their people
how to co-operate for victory? Are
our industrial, labour, church,
political, social leaders conscious
of the grave responsibilities that
are theirs by virtue of the influ-

Indian Club Holds
Pow-Wow This Week
Although a small group, the
'Theologs' have wonderful fellowship and community spirit and
each man has a definite desire
to do some real service for his
fellow men. When I visited the
college I met and talked with
men. Several students were sitting
about in the common room chatting or reading. One was puffing
awny at his pipe, while another
was struggling with the "Beer
Barrel Polka" on the piano. Almost every student Is interested
in athletics too, as the large collection of silver cups Indicates.
Thc College itself is a fine, modern building containing accomodation for thirty-two students, two
suites, the Principal's residence, a
Chapel, two lecture rooms, on excellent library of 8000 volume., t\
good-sized dining hall, and a cozy
common room. Tho hitter Is somewhat different to the usual campus common rooms, being rather
mor j like a large-sized den than
anything else. Here are comfortable choirs, book3 ond magazines,
a 'cheery fireplace, nnd a piano.
The average day for the Anglican Theolog Is approximately os
follows: 7:00 a.m., everybody up;
Then Morning Prayer, followed by
breakfast. Lectures start at 8:30
and continue till 12:30. After lunch
there are a few lectures. At 5:30
p.m. Evening Service Is held, followed by dinner. A time for games
ls provided between dinner and
7:15. After thla time students must
observe the "all-quiet" regulation.
Th. day ends at 10:00 p.m.
Activities of tho College during
the year usually Include an Oratorical Contest for the McGreer
Cup, two At Home's, and various
Intra-Mural sports. Many activities have been curtailed by the
military training, but Theologs get
a bonus of 7 per cent, on all exams. Many of the students have
important interests outside tho

Convivus Scribit
(EDITOR'S NOTEs It Is the earnest request of Professor Fretty
Woodcut and both of Its admirers that Chang Rides Again.)
e SO YOU WANT TO HEAR the story of how the Blunder-
birds got their coat-of-arms? Well, gather round, little
ones, and Grandpa Scrlbblewell will tell you a tale of long
long ago.
The story begins back ln the fall of '41 when I was In
my fourth year as a soph. I can still remember that November morning when we got the results of our Maths mid-term
and I felt as low as my mark until Evann Babies approached
me and seized my arm with the grip of a fraternity rusher.
Rumour had it that the Tin God was head of the Council
Gestapo, his smile or frown meant success or failure in the
slimy morass of campus politics.
"We need your help, Oscar, old man," he said. "The
Dirty Nine are losing their control over the student mob,
and we're afraid our voting public will never be satisfied
until the Canadian Basketball champs win a game."
"But that's impossible," I expostulated, "the Blunder-
birds have dropped so many now that casual acquaintances
are calling Van Vliet Butterfingers".
"It's possible, "leered the red-hea _d dictator, "with
Fat Flynn and Bim Stott on the team. And Flynn didn't
really graduate last spring and Stott isn't studying now.
They were lured to that filthy death trap on Grouse Mountain called the Varsity Outdoors Club Cabin, by the villainous Chang Suey disguised as a Fourth Year Chemical
called Duckland."
"Our men traced them there, but the hoopers are
guarded day and night by the wild mountaineers. But as a
sports reporter for the Dirty Rag you could rush in where
Council Gestapo fear to tread. You will go to the dive on
Grouse, aid our ally there ts rescue Flynn and Stott, and
report back to me Monday morning."
Babies was not a man to be disobeyed, so Saturday
night found me lugging up the big hill the tattered remnants
of a body that had route-marched all afternoon. The forbidding outline of my goal had just appeared before my
discouraged eyes when "Swish swish MOO!" shrieked a voice
in my ear, and there uncomfortably close to my throat was
a jagged ski pole grasped by an uncivilized Aggie sentry.
As we slunk past the ski shed, my attention was attracted by a faint moan. Unnoticed by the guard, I flashed
my stinking carbide lamp through the half open door, and
saw there the bodies of Bun Stott and Fat Flynn, trussed up
with ski harness edn leaning Against the wall.
A bloodcurdling din was shaking the grimy walls
of the main hut as we entered. The floor was covered with
the brawling forms of Engineers and Aggies, bashing their
neighbors with fists and hob-nailed boots, and on a wooden
bench in front of the dying fire sat the fiend Chang Suey disguised as a chemical engineer, with a gorgeous blonde called
Gottamyopia. Catching my eye, the blonde gave me the
recognition sign of the Council Gestapo by rapidly signing
a waiver.
"How too, too, thrilling," she gurgled when the guard
had explained who I was, "a real sports reporter, and almost
half alive, too. It's a ghastly shame there isn't any snow for
skiing, but you and the boys can show him how well you
skate," and she flicked her Max Factor eyelashes at the
disguised Suey. Foul Creature that he was, he was so under
her spell that he barked an order to his park of struggling
followers, and a moment later I felt myself swept into this
surge of humanity up to Blue Grouse Lake.
"Skate all in a row across the Lake," commanded the
blonde, and her word was law to the untamed creatures.
She stood beside me on the bank as we watched the line of
mountaineering ruffians, headed by the villainous fourth
year Chemical, glide toward the centre of the sheet of ice.
With a horrible crash the thin surface gave way, and the
creatures were left struggling in the freezing waters.
"We've got work to do, big boy," yelled Gottamyopia,
dragging me rapidly away from the lake and back to the
cabin where Bim Stott and Fat Flynn were strapped to the
ski rack. In a flash she had freed the imprisoned melon
tossers, and the four of us were rushing down the mountain,
with the distant vengeful cries of Chang and his wild Outdoors Clubbers following us.
When at last we were safe on the North Van ferry,
Fat Flynn, as fast a worker as ever, turned to the georgeous
blonde. "You've saved the Blunderbirds," he cried, "with
Stott and I, this year's team of droopy hoopers will go on
to newer and greater championships, and you shall be our
"What I have done I did merely to save the good reputation of the University," reproved the blonde, gazing at him
coldly, and, with a deft movement, she removed her wig and
placed a pair of spectacles on her nose, revealing herself to
be no other than Dean Mudsley.
But Fat Flynn kept his word, and that is why, dear
children, ever since then the Blunderbird's coat-of-arms has
been a shield of ski wax with the Dean of Women rampant
on a field of ice.

game   against   Normals   on   Friday.
• IN A WIDE OPEN GAME in a perfect November Stadium setting, the Varsity rugby fifteen mowed down
Victoria Garrison 19-0 to celebrate the opening of the C.O.T.C.
Armoury last Saturday afternoon.
The exhibition contest, officially opened by Major
General R. O. Alexander and staged before all ranks of the
C.O.T.C. and visiting dignitaries, was held on a fine field
under blue skies. Playing in the friendliest of spirits, the
boys gave no reason for referee Major A. G. Dobbie, coach
of the Blue and Gold Wonder teams in former years, to award
even one penalty for "fouls".
The Thunderbirds, playing this time under the banner of the Corps, showed great improvement over their Armistice Day McKechnie Cup fracas against Vancouver Reps.
They up and got themselves a fast, well-knit three
line, against which the loosely organized Redshirts of Victoria
were no match.
Hunter Wood set up the first
score mid-way through tho first
half when he secured the oval
from a scrum rush and passed to
Sandy Thompson who went over
for an easy try and 3 points. Hall
missed  the convert.
The next score came when Ernie
Teagle, former Varsity star, overpassed to the Victoria wing-man,
<.->.-* Jack Tucker gathered In the
bouncing ball. After a dash down
the wing he passed to Thompson
for another easy try. Al Gillespie
tried and missed the convert while
Hall was off with an Injured wrist,
leaving the score 4-0 at the half.
After lemons, the Garrison team
Improved their paaalng but their
attack soon withered.
While the Island men were short
handed, Varaity completed a
smooth three run, their first such
effort this season, to send Ian
Richards over. Gillespie missed
the conversion, leaving the count
at 9-0.
Then, on the best play of the
day, Orme Hall broke through
centre, passed to Thompson, who
in turn dished out the oval to
Tucker, who scored between tho
posts. Hall made thc convert good
for  14-0.
A few minutes later, after the
Victoria offense led by Teagle
foiled just short of o score, Hall
again broke loose to set up another
try between the posts, this time
by Thompson. Hall completed his
second convert, bringing the score
to its resting place of 19-0.
The Blue and Gold paid oft with
their better condition and coordination, both of which Coach
Tom Stewart had stressed slnca
their  first  game.
The scrum heeled the ball well,
ond halfback Toml Nlshio got it
away to the much Improved three-
quarter   line   in  fine   fashion.
The redshirts, who were expected to be very strong, were
disorganized on defense and sloppy on offense. Though a little too
eager to nab Nishlo, their breaks
were the  best men  on the side.
Though this victory against this
■weaker Island fifteen did not Indicate that U.B.C. can expect a
like result In their next McKechnie Cup game, it did show that

•    HO HUM!   The Varsity Thunderbirds dropped still another game to Tookes on Saturday night, at V.A.C. gym
by a close count of 47-40.
-—******** This   defeat  Just   about  finishes
Varsity's hopes of making the playoffs because after Christmas they
have only Ave games left to play.
One each with Shores, Tookes aad
Stacy's whom the students wilt
have to overtake, have already won
so far and they would have to drop
their remaining contests while tha
Thunderbirds capture three decisions In their five games.
It was a rousing affair right from
the opening whistle and but for
the last three minutes of play the
students kept pace with the shirtmen turning in by far the best
game that has been played thla
season. Both teams played very
fast basketball, handling the ball
and working it In great style.
The first quarter of the game
on Saturday night was a basket
matching affair. From the opening
whistle Art Barton scored, then
Jack Edmundson countered on the
next play, followed by another by
Art and still another by Edmundson. McConnell and Ryan matched shots then Harry Franklin entered the picture with a free toss.
McConnell came In again with a
one-hander but .Harry Kermode
soon got it back.
Edmundson with two more and
a long one by Rann Matheson
against Franklin's field baaket and
Barton's free throw ended the
period with Tookes In the ■■ lead
14-12. The game waa exceptionally
feat and good clean baaketball
Was the feature.
At half time the count stood
19-M in favour of the Birds who
had overtaken the Tookea amall
margin and themaelvea gone Into
the lead. Oeorge MoConnell had
hla third foul called on him early
in the aecond session and waa
given a rest on the bench while
Stout took over.
The three-quarter mark saw the
two teams still battling it out neck
and neck with only a two point
margin between them, the shirtmen  out  in  front  32-30.
In the fourth period the Blue
and Gold kept the pace up until
three minutes were left in the
game. Tookes wero up one point
41-40 with the students pressing
the attack. Jack Neal replaced
Russ Kenninglon who promptly
proceeded to sink one that also
sank the students' hopes. Tookes
ragged the ball and broke through
the demoralized Bird defense in
the last minute with counters by
Matheson and McConnell to wind
up the game in the lead 47-40.
Leading the students in the scoring column as usual was Art Barton with 14 points (o add to hla
total. Joe Ryan and Harry Franklin
were next with 9 markers apiece.
For the Shirtmen McConnell,
Matheson ond Edmundson led the
attack with 16, 12 and 13 points
