No. 37
Monroe Doctrine At
Applying To East
Is Resolution
By a house decision of 26-6, the
Parliamentary Forum sustained the
arguments of a team from the University of Oregon, on the negative
of the question: "Resolved that in the
interests of world peace, the United
States and Oreat Britain should recognise a Monroe Doctrine for Japan
in the Orient."
Debating for U.B.C. were Alf Carlson and Sam Lipson. They were opposed by Bill Hall and Howard Kessler of Oregon.
Opening the debate for the affirmative, Alf Carlson outlined the principles of the U.S. Monroe Doctrine.
"The U.S.A. will allow for no European aggression in the Americas. We
believe that this has been ln the best
Interests of peace in the New World.
And a Monroe Doctrine for Japan
would have similar results.
"At present we see China in a state
of chaos—armies marching through
the East. The state of affairs in the
rest of the world has accentuated this.
"One strong nation is needed to
control affairs in the east. We believe that Japan is the ideal nation
for this."
Bill Hall, speaking for the negative
opened with a contrast between the
American and Japanese policies.
"There is no analogy between the
American Monroe Doctrine and the
proposed Japanese plan. When the
U.S. put forward tb,e Montoe Doctrine, there were no spheres of influence carved out. Further, the U.S.
had vastly more potential power.
"The U.S. has carried out a dual
policy . . . one for countries capable
of governing themselves, tne other
for the Caribbean nations, who are
not very civilized, and have weak
"Japan wishes to determine the
foreign policy and trade of all nations
in the East. And America and Great
Britain cannot afford to withdraw.
Th-sy have too much capital invested
In China.
Sam Lipson carried on the argument for the affirmative.
"The U.S. reserves the right to define, interpret, and carry out its Monroe Doctrine. It is only fair that
Japan should have the same right.
The only solution for China and the
East is industrialization. Japan has
already carried this out within its
own borders. And it is able to carry
it out in China.
"The foreign trade whicn Great
Britain would have to give up if she
had to withdraw from China is only
1.6 percent of her total foreign trade."
Howard Kessler closed the debate
for the negative. He quoted the Lyt-
ton report to show that, while Japan
is ostensibly going into Manchukuo
for iron and coal, there Is really little
of these two products in the country.
"Japan's only Interest in China is
as a market. And they will want to
expand further after they get this
far. In the Philippine Islands there
is a mine containing enough iron ore
to keep Japan supplied for a hundred
Speakers from the floor followed.
After all had spoken, the debate was
closed by Sam Lipson. The vote gave
the decision to Oregon.
It was announced that the final
Forum meeting of the year would
take place on Tuesday, March 17,
when the question to be debated will
be "Resolved, that in Canada, East
is East, and West is West, and never
the twain shall meet."
Would all candidates for offices ln
the forthcoming student elections, except those for the office of president,
please turn in to the Ubyssey office a
short campaign platform and a short
lummary of their previous student activities before ten o'clock on Tuesday,
March 12. The Ubyssey wishes to remain Impartial but cannot do so unless all candidates co-operate.

Gould and Wilson McDuffee,
candidates for the A.M.S, presidency, wil be given Monday
noon In the Auditorium Instead
at today as prevously announced.
The change Is for the benefit

having three minutes to talk.
Victorious Orators
Compare Two
The visiting Oregon debaters, Bill
Hall and Howard Kessler, as well as
John Casteel who accompanied them
on their trip to Vancouver, gave some
sidelights on student government and
debating in the University of Oregon
In an interview on Tuesday.
Howard Kessler, originally from
Lethbridgt, Alberta, but now taking
journalism at Oregon, was surprised
to find that the editors of the Ubyssey get no salaries. "In Oregon," he
said, "the editor gets 9400 a year, the
business manager |400, and the managing editor |200, while the advertising solicitors get a percentage of the
proceeds from the ads they bring in.
"The paper is usually conducting a
campaign of some sort. At present,
it is crusading for a more vigorous
inter-fraternity council: one with
teeth, and with something to sink
them Into. The council is accustomed
to being held in on a tight leash.
"As for student government, it Is
of the usual political type to be found
in American universities."
"The less said about the government the better," declared bill Hall.
"All difficulties end by being referred to the constitution and the Judical Committee. The constitution is
practically non-existent. They revise it every year, and always leave
out something important."
John Casteel described debating in
Oregon. "The club is given a budget
from the funds of the Associated Student Body," he explained, "and is
directed by faculty members.
"The number of debates with other
universities is limited, but the members of the club speak to women's
clubs, the Kiwanis, the Rotary Club,
and many others on subjects ranginf
from farming and grain to political
"Afterwards the audience asks
questions. It is excellent experience
for the students and they get into
some funny situations.
"One group is making a barnstorming tour of Southern Oregon. These
discussion are not strick debates: we
call them Symposium. Different
speakers give different points of view
on the same question. At present
we are giving a series of fifteen minute discussions over the state radio
system, one each Friday night."
Bridges WiU Form
Institute Subject
"Some Modern Bridges" Is the title
of the Vancouver Institute lecture to
be given on Saturday evening in
Room 100 of the Arts Building of the
University of British Columbia. The
speaker will be Professor Allan H.
Finlay, of the Department of Civil
Engineering at the University.
While the development of bridges
v/ill be briefly sketched, and reference made to typicl examples of this
form of engineering, including the
great structure now under erection
between San Francisco and Oakland,
the bulk of the lecture will be devoted to the great bridge at Sydney,
The lecture will be fully illustrated
by lantern slides, mnay of the views
being taken from the air.
The chair will be taken at 8:15 by
Mr. George E. Winter, the Piesident
of the Institute.
The B. C. Electric provides an adequate bus service. All Institute lectures are free to the public.
Classic Comedy Of
English Stage
Displaying the color and charm of
one of the most gracious periods in
history, Oliver Goldsmith's swinging
comedy classic of the stage, "She
Stoops to Conquer," will radiate its
perennial warmth again when the
U.B.C. Players' Club offer their annual spring production at the University Theatre next Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
With all the style and elegance of
a bygone era, "She Stoops to Conquer" combines a verdant, earthy
quality of true comedy which has actuated its successful presentation In
London alone in practically every decade since 1795.
Sincerity and humour of characterization impart to the play that sparkling vitality which has preserved it
so well. English types as real as the
nation itself live in this comedy; the
lusty, genial, country gentry; the refined and exquisite aristocracy; and
the Devon yokels whose stolid quaint-
neas is so delightful.
Working under their talented director, Miss Dorothy Somerset, student
actors and actresses are enjoying the
verve and swing of their roles. Miss
Somerset's success with Little Theatre and past U.B.C. Players' Club
productions ensures a polished production.
C.O.T.C. Awarded
Diplomat, Prizes
The officers and men of the CO.
T.C. attended their final parade of the

Gas Discussed
At Forest Club
At the Tuesday meeting an interesting talk was given by Major J. H.
Jenkins of the Forest Products Laboratory. Major Jenkins discussed the
use of Producer Gas as a fuel from
1791 when it was first used for illumination to the present time when
large nations are converting, on a
wholesale scale, gasoline engines to
producer-gas engines.
One large mine in South Africa was
quoted as having cut down consumption of wood to one-fifth by conversion from steam to producer gas
power. It was stressed that the great
advantage of wood gas will be for
mines which are far from sources of
gasoline supplies and where the cost
of gas is high. These mines could
make their own charcoal and save
very considerably in so doing.
Work of the Forest Products Laboratory has shown that trucks using
producer gas generated from charcoal
can operate at a cost of .27 to .28
cents per ton-mile, whereas those
usin gasoline are costing about .57
cents per ton-mile. The cost of a
producer gas generator is about $300
In Vancouver.

Campus politics were the subject
of the S.M.U.S. meeting yesterday
noon, when the assembled engineers
were asked to pledge their support
to the sciencemen running for positions on Students' Council.
Further business included the advertising for the coming election of
next year's President of S.M.U.S. It
was announced that each candidate
would be allowed only one sign.
Another suggestion was that the
Class of Science '40 be initiated by
the redshirts. This met with enthusiastic acclaim, but a final decision was deferred to a later date.
At the close of the meeting, it was
announced that Professor Findlay
will speak at the meeting of the Vancouver Institute to be held on Saturday night in Arts 100, and all Science-
men were asked to attend.

Last Hour Nomination
Brings on Election
Battle Tuesday
Nominations for President of the
Alma Mater Society dosed Tuesday
night with only two candidates in tha
running. Jay Gould, this yeta'a 1+8.
E. President, will be opposed by Wilson McDuffee, prominent lower.
Gould haa had a varied life, ranging from travelling salesman to logger. He was out of the university for
several years, but returned vwo years
ago to complete his course, he intends to go into law as a life's work.
During the last two years he has
been a prominent member of tht Parliamentary Forum. Starting urt spring
when he participated in a debet*
against Washington, he has debated
for U.B.C. often. This fall, he toured
Canada with Maurice Western of th*
University of Saskatchewan, winning
more than two thirds of his debates.
He is also a member of the Players'
Club, where he has done much work.
Wilson McDuffee, starting as Premier of the Tuxis Older Boys' Parliament, has had experience as an executive. He is a well known member
of the S.C.M. and of the I.R.C.
He has been an outstanding rower,
and Is now in Oregon with the crew.
It was due partially to his efforts
that rowing received a raised rating.
Debating is also one of his activities. He has taken part in three radio
debates for U.B.C.
The two candidates will be heard
on Monday, in the Auditorium where
they will give amplifications of their
published platforms.
Speaking in support of Jay Gould
is Lex McKillop, McDuffee's speaker
has not been announced.

do their share of the Union Building
Campaign by putting on this show.
Admission will be ten cents.
A feature of the show will be an
exhibition of Jiu Jitsu, or Jiudo, the
Japanese national art of self defense.
Also, there will be Japanese fencing. This is done with weighty sabers such as decorate the .vails of
museums. An exhibition of 'his style

The Library these days is in great demand
from students studying for the last stretch be
fore exams. There appear, however, to be cer
tain students belonging to certain groups who
themselves not very much interested in study
ing, seem to forget that there are other stud
ents who come to the Library to study.
These students usually use the south wing,
otherwise known as the social wing, to persue
their alleged studying. For their own amuse
ment and the admiration of those sitting in the
vicinity they carry on a barrage of conversa
tion which would not be unusual if it was in
reasonable undertones. The conversations are
varied by the occasional practice of practical
jokes on co-eds and others, and at very special
times by the considerable feat of walking along
the Library tables.
We would not mention these facts at all if
it were not for the fact that the Library is getting more and more crowded by people with a
sincere desire to work. In normal times they
would stay away from the wing in question as
a matter of course as a very difficult place to
work in; but this is no longer possible.
It is only to be hoped that the students concerned will carry on their social hours elsewhere and give others more seriously minded
a fair chance to study.
On Tuesday will take place the all-important elections for President of the Alma Mater
Society. This year two candidates have been
nominated for the office. The importance of the
duties attached to the position of president can
not be too strongly stressed. The president is
the guiding spirit of the Students' Council and
through it of the A. M. S.
Obviously, then, the holder of this office
must be a person of considerable ability and
experience in student affairs. He must be a
man of ideas and the wherewithal to carry them
out. Students would do well to take this fact
into consideration when they cast their ballots next Tuesday.
Sprig has sprug. Flowers are sprouting
their sprouts through the fresh earth, and birds
are winging it hither and thither in search of
lahve. Everything is popping. And hopping.
This is the season of the poppadums. They
pop in a sort of curry dish. Pop-a-down-dilly!
We never could resist the itch of sprig. The
oyd blood which has ceased even a sluggish
pretence at circulation in our wintry editorial
veins, suddenly starts racing in all directions.
Oh, ah us, sprig.

This is a corollary to a column of some
months ago on the Care and Feeding of young
automobiles. I'm assuming now that you can
drive a car straight ahead, just like I can,
and four out of five times you can turn a right
angle corner voluntarily, the fifth time occurring when pedestrians in the vicinity of the
corner have an irresponsible gleam in their
eye, in which case there's always another corner a block or so ahead.
Dogs are still another hazard at corners.
I always say, if a dog chases your car, give
him a run for his money, but if he is occupied
with other things, and might unconsciously run
into you, by all means take the long way
Lately, with spring in my blood and a little
extra gas in Persephone's tank, we have been
moved to invent and rehearse various methods
of turning around.
Turning around has never been one of our
strong points. We believe firmly and conveniently in keeping a firm eye on what's coming
and letting the past take care of itself, sort of
"Let the dead bury its dead."
Unlike the woofle-bird, who flies backwards because he's not interested inwhere he's
going, he'd rather see where he's been, we
keep an upward and onward direction.
Besides, look what happend to Lot's wife.
The other day, for some melancholy reason,
we began delving into the past, and of all the
visions which floated upon the inward eye, the
most melancholy was the time we took the
policeman for a ride when we were trying
out for our license.
It was in the late autumn when the foliage
was hilariously red and yellow, but the ground
was wet and smushy. The policeman, who
had sat down in the front seat with me, with
the attitude of Iphegenia after her mind was
made up, had somewhat relaxed after four virtuous and perspicuous miles of uphill and
down dale.
With rather a pleased look, he said, "That's
far enough, you can turn around now."
I ignored the remark for another mile, quite
successfully, when he repeated, "That's far
enough, you can turn now."
Rather bitterly I stopped the car, with a
mental comment, "Me and who?"
The road wasn't wide, and the ditches on
either side were pretty deep. I donned my
baffled look, and he turned the wheel far
round to the left. "Now," he said, "give it a
little gas."
So I gave it gas to the very lip of the ditch.
"There," he said. "Now hard around to the
right, and give it gas."
Unfortunately I don't come from a section
of the country where hard around means 'way
'way round, and the term confused me. He illustrated by twisting the wheel tight to the
right, and yelled "Gas."
He asked for it, so I gave it gas, and that
was the big mistake.
It was still in low. His nose rather unceremoniously met the windshield with a sound of
a stepped-on cream puff, which I just had
time to register, as my head went between the
spokes of the steering wheel.
I backed it out with desperate and instinctive dexterity, and we never said a word all
the way home.
Anyway, his nose was inclined toward retrousse when we started, whereas my ears
had never been cauliflower before, so what did
he have to kick about?

During the past year tho U.B.C.
Students' Council has excelled itself
in working hard. Few Councils of
other years can point to equal achievements. Naturally some of our 1935-
36 Council have done more than
others—their positions provided that
I refer in particular to Bern Brynelsen, who has never missed an opportunity to serve the student body.
Few know the full extent of the service he has rendered—it Is certain
that he will never tell. But some of
us on the Ubyssey staff, who have
been In constant touch with him, can
vouch for the fact that during his
term of office the students have
gained many benefits solely from his
hard work and energy .
Longer noon hours, the appointment of gymnasium instructors, and
the original scheme for x Umon
Building — all these were brought
about largely by Brynelsen.
All of us are hoping that next year
won't be an anti-climax—that another
Council will be elected to carry on
the fine traditions set by the present
body. The election of that Council
Is up to you, It Is not our job to advise the voters.
But this Is Important
When you vote for President next
Tuesday, and for the other offices
the following week, keep In mind that
ne University needs a Students' Council that will have as Its first aim the
welfare of the students. The men snd
women who will be our lawmakers
during the next year should have the
desire and the ability to serve us—and
work together. They will have to be
prepared to work under another strong
leader. They will have to be prepared to hold office during what promises
to be the busiest year this campus has
known for a long time. This present
year Is quiet In comparison to the one
that will follow.
And so, despite tha bombast of the
proceeding paragraph, I hope the
idea is over that this year's elections
are going to be serious. We need a
Council next year that will be ready
for action. We know that the President will be—the rest depends on the
students who vote.
• •  •  •
And so is the annual walking sea-
Every noon hour — and aren't we
glad they last an hour and a half!—
we stroll through the gardens, down
to Marine Drive, along by the point,
and back through that old dirt road

Spring on this campus is a wonderful thing—it .is anywhere. All the
petty caf romances that flourish during the winter at tea-time burst out
into their full blossom when Spring
is upon us Out into the wide open

arm in arm.
Poetry—a peculiarly messy type of

turns to . . . love.

New Ski Club
Ready To Go
The recently-founded University
Ski Club has been organized for thoee
skiers in the university who prefer
Hollyburn Ridge aa a recreation
ground, announces its executive. The
club is to be run very much on the
lines of the existing ski clubs, activities being devoted solely tc skiing
and jumping.
Membership is now over forty. Although the club has as yet no cabin,
Mickey Pogue, the president, is In
touch with "Sootty" Finlayson, Provincial Police Constable for the area,
regarding a site. The site will be
near the Hollyburn Ski Camp, or between it and the West Lake Ski
Enthusiastic members will fell and
peel the timber this summer, and
construction will start on % twenty

The executive of the club consists
of Mickey Pogue as president, Tom
Church 'as vice-president, Bud Killam
as treasurer, Phil Borchard as aherrlff
and Bud Burden as archivist.
The membership at present consists
of men only, although if later on accommodation can be increased, the
constitution may be amended to Include women. Until this time, Women's Open House Day will be- in February.
There will be nothing compulsory
in the dub, no work hikes, or requirements In live way of ski trips.
This protests those who already have
cabins of their own on Hollyburn,
but anyone desiring election to membership after March 15 will have to
attend the first two or three work
hikes in the fall.
There are three classes cf membership, including a class for those
not residing ln the cabin.
During the next year the executive
hopes to obtain recognition Wider the
Amateur Ski Association of Canada,
and become the second official ski
organization on the campus. McOlll
has two ski clubs so recognized.
Annual competitions with the Outdoor Club are projected, although

Editor, Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Without fear of serious contradiction I desire to voice my protest
against useless and annoying discoursing that goes on every day in the
library reading room. It is abominable and can hardly be tolerated by
those students who are trying to
It is most unfortunate that university students should have to be reminded how to conduct themselves.
But It seems that some of them think
that the reading room has been
placed at their disposal for discussing
their love affairs, parties, fraternity
duties, dances or politics.
It sometimes becomes necessary for
one student to ask another a question
which only requires a brief answer.
But to sit and talk by the hour about
all sorts of nonsense should certainly
not be carried on in a place which
ought to be as quiet as possible.
The writer has observed that those
students who make a practice of discoursing in the library are the ones
who generally have one or more supplemental at the end of the year or
even fall completely.
The library officials have enough
work to do without playing the part
of a policeman. And, above all, there
should bo no necessity for reminding
university students how to carry on
Some, apparently, have not got out
of their elementary school stage yet.

City Banker
Students in Professor Toppin's Economics section were given a special
lecture on Banking yesterday morning when Mr. Moore, Manager of the
downtown branch of the Canadian
Bank of Commerce visited the university.
He stressed the importance of good
character in those thinking of taking
up banking as a life's work. Also,
he gave a short talk on Loans and
"When money is loaned to an Individual or a corporation," ne stated,
"the character of the borrower comes
out above all else." He showed how
good judgment was necessary in the
issuing of loans.
An explanation was given of the
technical portion of banking, during
which the speaker explained drafts,
cheques, and money orders.
In conclusion, he pointed out that
the welfare of the banks depended
on the welfare of Canada, and that
the banks were doing all in their
power to increase the business activities of the Dominion.

Scribblewell clutched at the straw.
"Yes! But if I win, you must let
Bummond and myself go, and do your

may do what you will."
Then there was a period of silence,
during which only the slap-slap-slap
ot milk tops could be heard, reminding Oscar of the days he had spent
in the Aggie barns.
Gradually, Scribblewell gained the
advantage. Those long hours over the
chess board in the Pub office, those
hours of bridge, stood him in good
i stead now.
Finally, he had all the Oriental's
milk tops.
Wang Hang Lo stood to one side,
while Scribblewell woke Bummond.
"Come, professor, We are free to
go now."
"Velly well," muttered the economics lecturer, half asleep. Then he
recollected himself, and said: "Aye,

Meet Huskies Today
The first of the Rowing Club's two regattas on their southern tour ended in a victory for Oregon State College. Word received yesterday from Corvallis gives the margin of victory as
two lengths.
As losses go, this is not a great defeat in the sport of rowing, and the boys still have a good chance when they return to
Seattle today to meet the University of Washington 160 lb.
The crew is in excellent shape and will travel to Washington ready to take the Huskies into camp. Rowers making the
trip are, Bill McLeish, Frank Stevens, Gordy Morris, Jack West,
John Jamieson, Graham Darling, Bob Pearce, and in the bow
Alex Macintosh. Wilson MacDuffee and Stan Weston are with
them as spares, and the team is also accompanied by their coach,

Victoria Brings
Cup Here
With old man winter relenting and lady spring a-wooing
them with gentle zephyrs and
sparkling skies, the Varsity rugby boys plough into action again after a long lay-off.
Saturday the Senior men meet Victoria Rep in the deciding game for
the McKechnie Cup, the most important game of the year; and the following Saturday the pig-skin pushers
tackle the Rowing Club to fix the
possession of the Miller Cup, another
game that is sure to provide the local
folk with rugby talk for some time
to come.
As usual Victoria will pack lots of
pep and punch over from the city of
sunshine and birds. One is led to
believe that the weather over there
is much superior to the local brand,
so the men should be in excellent
shape to give the boys a tight game.
Victoria is sending over her favorite rugger sons — Warten, fullback;
Colgate, Roe, Fleming and the rest of
the boys. There is power in the forwards; speed, tricklnesi and youth in
the bcakfield—a hard team to beat
any day.
If the fine weather continues, the
playing field will be tn excellent condition for a wide open backfield tussle. The Rep men will be able to use
their strong department much to the
discomfort of the blue and gold men.
However,  Varsity has a powerful
fifteen to match the Islanders who
scored against the famous All-Blacks.
Under the leadership of Harry Pearson, the men who met the Blacks,
Bird, Mercer, Senkler, Pyle, Carey,
