Auditorium
63,360 Coppers Needed To
Reach War Council's Aim
For Milk For British Babies
e "A MILE OF PENNIES to buy milk for British babies" is the objective set for the initial campvs-wide campaign of the War Aid Council which will commence Monday
morning    at 10 a.m. and continue till Friday.
63,360 coppers, which will add $633.60 to the Kinsmen's Club's drive to send 1,500,000
quarts of milk for undernourished children in Britain, are needed to cover the measured
mile to be marked out in the Quad next week.
Bottles will be placed in every building for the collection of pennies and the coins
will be gathered each afternoon and added to the line. The total collected each day in the
five-day drive will be tabulated and charted on the measured mile and on a huge graph to
be erected in the Quad.
e CONCERNED over students' behavior at pep
meets and pass feature functions, Students' Council took
steps this week tp establish
supervision of ushering in
the auditorium.
In future members of the Man's
Big Block Club will maintain order at auditorium functions. Under
a committee of Harry Home and
Charlie Long, the athletic proc-
tora will exert their authority by
confiscating passes of students exhibiting disorderly conduct. Such
offenses will be reported to the
Discipline   Committee.
Students' Council has decreed
thnt Big Blocks will also patrol
the parking lot—one mon each,
noon hour — for the first three
•weeks ot  the  Spring term.
reviewing
the plays
With LIONEL SALT
• THE PLAYERS' Club's annual
"search for talent" group went
before a student audience Wednesday night and came out second
best.
The group, comprised of the
Club's ' freshman talent, had the
misfortune of being coupled in
their inexperience of the stage with
poorly-chosen plays, ond miscasting. They spoke through their
laughs, smiled nt their own lines,
and showed a marked tendency to
step out of character.
The student audience stayed in
character—always boorish, they derided jibed, howled at thc dramatic climaxes.
The weaknesses displayed by the
neophyte actors were nothing new
for Christmas plays, but the growing tendency of the Club towards
dramatic Incongruous vehicles
only served to heighten their de-
flclencles.
COWARD CLICKS
Saving grace of the evening,
from an audience standpoint, was
the chocolate-coated dialogue in
Noel Coward's "Hands Across the
Sea" which uncovered Ingenue
talent In the person of Margie
Beale.
Coming after two "dialect plays",
the Coward opus, proved to be
the one well-directed play of the
evening.
SWIFT MOVEMENT
With almost perfect timing, with
the insouciance of seasoned players, the characters hustle-bustled
through Coward's dialogue, obviously enjoying the assignment.
Margie Beale, as female lead,
turned in tlie best performance
of the evening. Elizabeth Locke,
Betty Hobden, and Norman Campbell handled their parts well. Bill
Davie   was   obviously   mis-cast.
In "The Charlady and the An-
gell"•—drawlng-reom "a" an d
cockney—the characters overplayed their parts with the exception of Shirley Kerr, as the
charlady, who turned in the evening's best performance. Here the
script was as much to blame as
were the players.
"STAIRS" STARK
By far the most ambitious attempt, towards drama attempted at
Christmas plays for years was the
effort of four brnve souls who
struggled through the stark real-
Ism of "The Giants' Stair."
Their   ambition  was  rewarded.
Thunder and lightning, a mad
woman, and a walking cadaver
failed to strike student1* as realism— they howled with glee.
Tho opening opus, "Why I Am
a Bachelor," was just that — an
opening act.
New Style
For Arts
Sweaters
e A NEW STYLE Arts' Sweater
Is soon to be introduced on
the campus. Sutherland Horn of
the A.M.S. office announces that
in-itcad of the customary two gold
bands on the sleeve tho new cud
will have one gold bind around
the V-nockline. There will also
be one at the wrists and at the
waist.
As the sweater is for the Arts
faculty only there will be no
"Arts" on the front but instead a
large "U.B.C." above the year of
graduation. Because of the increase ln price there will be no
zipper. The cost, which will bo
around $5,00, will be decided by
the A.M.U.S., headed by president
Chuck  McNeely.

e    PICTURED ABOVE are some of the Fiji Islanders who toured the campus on Thursday and created quite a sensation for the assembled Caf loungers when they sang a few
of their native and English songs.
Treasurer
Elections
Next Term
e ATTENTION of students
is called to the forthcoming elections for treasurer to
be held the third week in
January.
A motion was passed at tho last
A.M.S. meeting that the treasurer
be elected the third week In January to enoble hitn to gain experience of his work before taking
over   duties  in  March
Students are now asked to consider their choice of candidates
and to submit nominations to the

Surprise Singer For
Seniors at Class Party
•    OVER    150 SENIORS will  dine and dance tonight at
the annual senior class party at the Panorama Roof.
Patrons of the affair, which will last from 9:30 to 1:00,
will be Dr. Joseph Crumb, honorary president of the senior
class, and Mrs. Crumb.
Away from the islands for tho
first time, the men were very
pleased with Vancouver. When
asked his opinion of Vancouver,
one  said  simply,  "Lovely."
Some of the men are accomplished singers, others play banjos,
guitars, and mandolins, and one
writes for one of the doily papers
of the capltol of the Islands, Suva.
They gave an Impromptu sample
of their singing ln the caf. Introduced by Ormle Hall, who saluted
the members of the original Fiji
chapter, the curly-haired Islanders sang one of their native songs
and an English one to a crowd of
some 200 students who gathered
around the Fiji table.
The stocky mariners -will be ln
Vancouver - for three weeks and
during that time will sing and play
at numerous churches about the
city.
Red Cross
Produces
Concert
The program outlined for the Red
Cross Concert for medical aid to
the U.S.S.R. on Monday. 8 p.m.,
at the Auditorium will Interest
U.B.C. students.
Such artists as Arthur Benjamin, Annabell Edwards, John Ooss
A. Gerhardt-Olly, Jean de Rlman-
oczy, and the "The Stag Party"
comedians, Alan Young, Bernard
Braden, and Frank Vyvlan, will
donate their services.
Feature of the evening will be
a surprise guest singer, a member
of  the  senior class.
Seniors ore reminded that each
person must present his pass and
ticket to the waiter In order to
get in. Tickets of students without passes will not be honoured
The regular price of $1.50 will be
charged those without either ticket  or pass.
Seniors who have not yet got
their ticket may do so by presenting their pass at the A.M.S. office.
Handling the arrangements for
the last class party of the Class of
'42 are Oordon Macfarlane, Doreen Ryan, Margaret McClory, Elizabeth  Hebb,  and Stu  Madden.
"We feci", explained Gordon
MacFarlane, president of tho senior class, "that for some seniors
this Is thc only big party that they
can attend. They have already
pull', for It In their student pass
fees and It seems a shame that, instead of an otstan-Ung party, some
people would want them to have
that  same   as  a  23  cent  Saturday
night mixer. Certainly we are not
against mixers, but we think that
a class party should be something
extra."
Open Brock

Exam Preppers
•  GOOD    NEWS    to    those    that
want to study Is that the Brock
Hall  is available starting Wednesday,   November  26,
Library overcrowding in the first
part of the term has proved nothing to the congestion found thero
since the exam notice appeared.
The Students' Council, In an effort
to relieve the crowding, has made
the meeting rooms in the Brock
Hall available for study. Only
those rooms that nre not booked
especinlly for meetings are Included   In   this  scheme.
Split Vote For UBC
Downtown Dances
e    A REPRESENTATIVE campus survey conducted by the
Ubyssey has brought  decisive  answers to  all  questions
except the most important issue.

want formals.
The  majority  of the male popu-
The question of holding downtown dances remains as unsettled as ever, as out of 144 sttiderits
polled, 72 favored their continuance and 72 favored suspending
them.
There were 95 artsmen, 26
sciencemen, 11 Aggies, and 12
commerce students questioned In
the poll. Of these 43 belonged
to sororities and fraternities and
101  did  not.
The students are in favor of more
social functions, with profits going
to war effort.
FAVOUR BROCK—In answer to
tho second question "Do you favour more social functions In
Brock Hall, the profits to go to
the -war effort? ' 124 replied they
did, while only 20 were against
It.
Apparently the students like
their formal functions, for all said
that they thought "we should have
formal functions at this  unlversl-
lotlon cannot afford the downtown dances.
Fifty-one of the men said that
they were unable to afford them,
whllo 33 said they could.
The new B. U. P. feature "Night
Wire", met with the approval of
74 and the disapproval of 51. This
question was added shortly after
the poll began so all students did
not express an opinion  on it.
e    KEITH     PORTER,
A.M.S. treasurer, receiv-
his commission as Second-
Lieutenant in the Canadian
Army Service Corps this
week.
Attached to the C.O.T.C. last
term, Porter transferred to a
downtown unit of the A.S.C. at
the beginning of the fall session.

64.60 Tops
Past Denial
Day Returns
e SELF-DENIAL Day went "over
the top" on Wednesday with a
net return of $64.60. This tops last
week's high of -52.27 and brings
the total  up  to date to $327.63.
According to several of the girls
who hold the tins the majority of
tho   contributors  are  boys.
CHANGE SILVER
The committee of the War Aid
Council in charge of the "Mile of
Pennies" campaign has arranged
to station a money-changer In tho
Quad box office every day from
12 to 1:30 p.m. to convert silver
into coppers for students to add
to the line. $50.00 In pennies has
been obtained to meet Monday's
demand for  coppers.
It ls estimated that to reach our
objective by next Friday every student and faculty member will have
to cover the mlle-llne with at least
thirty coppers each. At McGUl
University last month over $S20
we- collected In a similar drive
for war services.
Huge bottles will be placed ln
the Science, Applied Science and
Agriculture buildings, In the Caf
and Quad, and the two Theological Colleges for the convenience
of students who wish to drop their
pennies at these centers. The coins
will be collected from these bot-
tls each day and added to those
placed on the  Quad  mile.
NEED HELPERS
To successfully supervise the
collection many students are needed to patrol the penny-lines, gather coins from the bottles and
count the "take" each night. Several organizations, Including the
Hylu-Ows, Big Block Club, Inter-
Fraternity Council and Pan-Hellenic Association, have offered to
supply helpers, and many others
who wish to help are asked to
contact Dorothy Hlrd, chairman ot
the  "Mlle-of-Pennles"   Committee.
Progress of the campaign will ba
broadcasted dally by Mammooks
over the P.A. ayatem and the percentage of the total mile collected
each day charted ln the Quad.
Headquarters for the drive will
be the Publications Office, where
the pennies will be counted each
evening and then deposited in the
bank.

• WASHINGTON — Japanese-American "Peace" talks
reportedly on the verge of collapse, shifted to the White
House today when President Roosevelt conferring lengthily
with Secretary of State Cordell Hull and Japanese Envoys
Saburo Kurusu and Klchlsaburo Nomura.
When the 45-minute parley broke up there still was
no answer to the issue of peace or war in the Pacific.
e NEW YORK — The Presidium of the Supreme Soviet
has awarded the Order of Lenin, one of the highest awards
of the Soviet Union, to four British flyers serving on the
Eastern Front "For Exemplary Execution of Fighting Orders" and "For Valor and Courage," according to a Moscow radio broadcast heard tonight.
e LONDON — Six German divisions in the van of a drive
flanking Moscow's southern defences were reported advancing northeastward Thursday night on an eight-mile front
toward the Moscow-Ryazan Railroad, some 90 miles beyond
Tula.
At the opposite tip of the half-moon defense zone before
the Capital, slight German advances were acknowledged,
apparently in the Klin sector, some 50 miles north of Moscow. The Soviet Radio said the battle for Moscow had
reached its "second stage" as the enemy struggled to encircle the city.
e CAIRO — The desert battlefield in Libya became an
"Every-man's Land" today, as fighting swirled back and
forth on a shifting front stretching from Egypt to Tobruk.
The British spot of indecisive fighting in Libya between
the British and Axis mechanized units was a, dramatic dawn
meeting 17 miles southeast of Tobruk between the besieged
garrison of that city and New Zealand Imperial forces which
had fought their way from Egypt along the coast and then
veered into the desert where the main battle was being
fought.
e KUIBYSHEV—As the Germans slashed Into the flanks
of the Moscow front, the Russians today were holding firm
in the centre of the Capital.
In the Rostov sector to the south, the Germans said they
repulsed a strong Russian attack, the Russians said they had
advanced another 31 miles in a continuing offensive which
during the past few days slaughtered more than 10,000 Axis
troops. Page Two

Every Penny Counts
The newly organized War Aid Council,
under the capable chairmanship of Dorothy
Hird, plunged right into the task of revitalizing U. B. C.'s war effort this week with
the planning of the Mile-of-Pennies drive
for a most worthy cause. Much enthusiasm
was shown by the twenty-two members who
attended the meeting. The group is representative of every branch of student opinion and should gain the support of every
undergraduate.
The Council decided that we should
concentrate all our efforts this term on the
support of three- war service enterprises—
the Red Cross (which was the only one \v>
contributed last year); the International
Student Service, an organization which concentrates on helping university student
prlsoners-of-war in all countries; and the
Kinsmen's Milk for British Babies drive.
Answering the appeal o f t h e British
Food Ministry whloh stated that fresh milk
for the babies was one of Britain's most
pressing needs, the Canadian Kinsmen set
an objective to ship 1,500,000 quarts of milk
overseas before July 1, 1041. Of this amount,
350,000 quarts have already been sent. By
reaching our objective of a mile of pennies
next week we would be able to send over
6,300 quarts of milk as the contribution of
U.  B.  C.  students.
The reason why milk is so scarce in the
Old Country is obvious. Denmark and the.
Netherlands, on which Britain depended
for her milk supply, have been cut off as
markets by German occupation. Rationing
is so severe that babies of under five years
are only allowed five pints per week, while
children from six to twelve get five and a
half pints.
The milk is shipped from Canada in
powdered form in air-tight tins. When it
reaches its destination the milk is changed
back to its fluid state and distributed to the
needy children by over 8,000 women of the
Volunteer Women's Corps. Those in charge
claim that this process makes the milk much
easier to ship; while its food value, far from
becoming less,  is  actually enhanced.
The Kinsmen's Club has promised that
every cent raised by us in next week's campaign will go to buying the precious food,
as all administrative and transportation
costs will be borne by them. Let's show
them that we really are behind this effort
by keeping" the pennies flowing.
• Faculty Forum • • • ** ->- «• *• «*»*»
Milk, Rats and Blood
e WITH GROWING dismay I heve
watched the appearance in the Ubyaaey of
these Faculty Forum article*. According
to the press (and therefore, I suppose, the
Ubyssey) my interests lie hi milk, rata, and
blood; and who would relish the prospect
of having to write, when his turn came, a
couple of half columns on this unexalted
theme? Make no mistake, I would not by
choice have milk, rats and blood either as
motto on my escutcheon, or at the head of
this article. What would I prefer? Well,
almost anything, but how about "O world
Invisible, we view thee" . . .
One could have made something of that
perhaps, might even have offered one dime
to the first student in English 1 to give its
aource correctly. But no choice was given.
I was told, inexorably, to write on Blood. It
seemed fitted to dilute the blood a bit with
Milk, while the Rats were put in just to keep
them hopping, as it were, after the *Pied
Aldermen of New Hamelin.
BUGS OVER MILK
As for Milk, you all know it is, a virtuous drink. Perhaps you did not know that
in cow's milk there is Big Money. But this
matters less than that there are also Many
Bugs. And the first blot on the escutcheon,
so to speak, has been the inability to persuade
people that disease-producing bacteria should
be killed before milk is left at their door.
Thereafter, you may do what you like with
it—quaff it quick, leave it lying around for
flies to sip and fingers to pollute, or even
keep it in one of those really worth-while
implements of civilization, a refrigerator.
But until the milk is placed on your doorstep, from the standpoint of public health
law it is as much my property as yours, and
my interpretation of that law is that our
milk should be pasteurized, to protect your
health and mine.
WHY RAW?
Why then do we defy the law, or take
advantage of its vagaries? The fault lies in
municipal politics; i n obscure bounds o f
jurisdiction, and differences of objectives, as
between Dominion and Provincial Departments of Health and of Agriculture; in false
and often vicious propaganda on the part of
some raw milk producers, and the vested
interests behind them; and in a noisy minority of cranks who, perchance through an
oddly perverted Oedipus fixation, seem to
regard the rendering of milk safe by pasteurization as insulting to the cow. Sometimes it seems the law was not made for
man after all.
As for Rats, if milk is a vehicle for the
World Invisible,  so are they.     But for the
*Pied.   .  .  .  Particoloured   (Concise  Oxford
Dictionary).
present there is no more to. be said about
these filthy beasts, proliferating amidst the
wastage of a great concourse of humanity,
and plunging, as you approach their hiding
places, down the steep slopes of civic refuse
—not, alas, to their own destruction. To
say more at this stage would be unfair to
the rats. We await ACTION, but meanwhile there's many a parable to be told anent
the City Dump. Democracy has its metaphorical garbage disposal problems too ....
BLOOD CAMPAIGN
So now we come to Blood ... In 1490,
Pope Innocent VIII was senile. Only the
year before, he had promulgated a powerful and famous Bull, Malleus Maleficarum,
which treated chiefly "of the three necessary concomitants of witchcraft, which are
the devil, a witch, and the permission of Almighty God." Perhaps this effort had been
too much. At any rate, the Papal physician
essayed rejuvenation by transfusing the
blood of three young boys into the old man.
The experiment was unsuccessful, but conclusive, for the Pope died immediately, and
so did the donors. I do not know the fate
of the physician, but he was a Jew, and per-
sumably went at least into exile. After this
inauspicious start, the letting and getting of
blood was long banned by Church and State.
Things are different now. When we take
or give blood today, no harm is done, for we
bear in mind another kind of World Invisible
from that of Innocent VIII. Indeed, so far
has civilization advanced in 450 years that
your blood can be both painlessly given and
sorely needed, to save the lives of thousands
over there, shattered by shot, shell and
bomb-blast, cut by sheets of glass, burned,
bashed about and broken by falling buildings—victims of the megalomania of one,
and of the apathy of millions ....
DOESN'T HURT
One has been asked so often—too often:
"Does it hurt to give blood?:' It doesn't.
What if it did? We should be thankful we
can give it in measured amounts.
You have had your fill of facts about
your neighbor's blood in the papers, on the
screen, in lectures, over the radio. Here
I am merely trying to dig your ribs, jog
your elbow, and touch your heart. If you
have not yet done so, there is still time to
offer your blood to the League of Donors.

less a band of brothers.

One M
Opinion
an*t
BY ANDY SNADDON
e CANADA'S youngest university (that's us) has had In the
past the best record of student
initiative of any oampus In the
Dominion. We have buildings on
the campus, the stadium, the gym,
Br6ck Hall and the Armory, aU
of whloh have been erected by
•tudftnt effort. That U more than
any other Canadian College, our
nearest rival being Queens which
has three — and they had a seventy-five years head start on us.
We feel that the old spirit ls still
good here and that all lt needs is
a little organization to bring lt
out. War effort Is the big thing
nowadays and most of the students
are all for pitching ln and giving
the university an Impressive record.
There were many well-supported
war drives going on the campus
last year and this year, but the
whole thing lacked co-ordination.
That ls why we advocated the
war   board   being   established.
WAR AID COUNCIL
Now the council has set up a
war board and It has made a fine
beginning by planning a mlle-of-
pennies  campaign  for   U.B.C.
So now comes the moral of this
little story.
As brother Salt pointed out last
week the great fear of this campus Is unfavorable down-town
publicity. The only way to avert
this publicity ls to stop doing the
things which  bring  it  out.
NO CENSORSHIP
If the students feel that they
should continue to have dances in
city cabarets, and If they feel that
there Is nothing wrong with these
affairs, even in war time, why
should we hide the fact that we
are holding  them?
If we are putting on a good war
effort It will gain publicity to
counter-act the publicity received
for   social   functions.
Summing It all up, by supporting the War Aid Council and doing our job on tho milo-of-pen-
nles, we can show the Great Vancouver Public that much of their
criticism is unwarranted and we
can also show that U.B.C. still has
more spirit than any university
from staid old McGiil to frozen
Edmonton.
NO  RECOGNITION
Tlie University of Aiberta Gateway, official student paper of the
Edmonton institution, has discovered the talents of the Ubyssey's
Jabez and have practically adopted his column as a weekly feature
for their own paper. The last issue
we received here did not give
credit to the author of this Ubyssey favorite, merely acknowledged
that it had been taken from our
paper.
Now, after reading their own
humor column, a collevtion of
standard jokes under the title
"Casserole" we can understand
their borrowing Jabez's work.
Still it would only be good manners for them to acknowledge the
author, and lt might even be within the bounds of their etiquette if
they  wrote a  letter thanking him.

voted  to   war  work.

• A Year Ago. •
e THE WEEK ending November
29, 1940, saw students beginning to think faintly of fast approaching exams. . . . Even tho
Pub felt the urge to study as
they put the Ubyssey on pre-
Chrlstmas rations of one Issue per
week . . . Sensation of the week
was the charge In the House at
Victoria by C.C.F. members Mrs.
O. D. Steeves and Mrs. Laura
Jamlesan that fraternities ahould
be abolished as "un-Brltlsh and
un-demoeratlo." Campua Oreeks
and Hellenic alumni ridiculed the
attack, pointing to their war work
and good stundlng at the university. Only students quizzed by
Uby.sey that upheld the chargs
were Val Bjarnason, president of
the C.S.A. discussions club and
Shellah Hutchinson, general secretary of the S.C.M. ... A flu epidemic swept over the campus, invaliding among others Professors
J. A. Irving and F. O. C. Wood . .
Sclencemen leaned from their
drafting room windows to jeer at
passing co-eds wearing knee-sox.
They summed up their feelings by
assorting "Knees of girls that wear
knee sox will never touch ours."
. . . Oddity of the week was toilet
paper rolling down Oranvllle St.
aa many frats Initiated their new
pledges.

e I STARTED to do some of my
Christmas snooping the other
day before doing my Christmas
shopping and I found all sorts of
things that make just marvellous
gifts (I wouUln't mind having
them myself in fact). For example
when I went into Wilson's Glove
and Hosiery Shop, 575 Granville
St., I was just thrilled with tho
delicious satin pyjamas ond gowns.
They have lace trimmings and
come in blue and all colors. A
beautiful blonde freshette carries
a    large     hat-pin    for     protection
* *
e THOUGHT   I'D    go   early    and
avoid the rush when I went
downtown, and darn If the rush
season hasn't started already. So
I rushed Into Plant's, 564 Granville St., to see what I could find
in the way of holiday togs. Seems
that they have everything suitable
for those lazy days, or if you'ra
worklng, they have clotnes for the
working gal too. In one of the
Christmas plays one of the girls
has to pull down her girdle and
during    rehearsals    she    mumbled
• *
e SOME PEOPLE try not to get
Into this column, and others
try to get Into It — for example the
Kappa who was talking ln an obviously loud voice behind one of
my stooges saying that she'd liko
to get Into Mary Ann's column, but
Sha didn't reveal the deep dark
secrets of har life . . . the secret
of my life is Rae-son's Metaanlne
floor shoes, 008 Oranvllle St. I
heard someone say the other day
that tha gaberdine and suede Shoes
ar* really swell at 17.80 and $T.»5,
whenever she goes out. When she
went out with a dark D. U. she
displayed the pin prominently, but
when she went out with a Beta
pledge she showed It to him, put
it away and got quite chummy.
Wilson's are really wonderful for
gift suggestions for your female
relations and friends, everything
they have Is "just the thing." Sister or aunt, mother or cousin, or
the all-Important girl friend would
be ever so pleased with something
that is truly feminine.

something to the actor next to her.
The director wanted to know what
was going on so this actor chappie
yells out nt the top of his voice.
"She says tt'd help a lot if she had,
a girdle on to pull down", so the
director (male) got up on the
stage and demonstrated how to
pull u girdle down properly.
Plant's have a wonderful selection of sports wear, afternoon
dresses, evening gowns, coats, jackets, suits — anything you can
think of ln the ladles' apparel line.
so take my advice and go down
there for your new Christmas
pair. Incidentally if you want
aomethlng new, they just got In
a shipment from the east. Shoes
are alwaya a good hint for Christmas too, and then there are purses
to match them. A freshman embarrassed hla Alpha Phi girl friend
at the Arts-Aggie by trying to
milk the bull on the head table.

Toronto Sponsors
March of Dimes;
Bands Will Aid
e    STUDENTS of the University of Toronto will stage a
march of dimes campaign on their campus on Wednesday,
December 3 with an objective of nearly  $1,000 to be devoted to International Student's Service,  according to  announcement made last night by the Student's Administrative
Council, sponsors of the all-University drive.
S.A.C.   officials   said   the   drive _________________a___________-__s_______i
would be merely the first item In
a program of spectacular efforts
to raise money for the I.S.S. during the present school year. The
ten cent pieces, estimated at a
probable total of 9,599 will form
a 350-foot silver ribbon which
students, staff, and public will lay
down from curb to curb along
the sidewalk behind the old Observatory building facing Hart
House.
BRASS BANDS
Colorful plans for the ceremony
have not yet been completed, but
ore at present under consideration
of a committee which plans to
make use of University talent as
much as possible in outdoor demonstrations encouraging studcntls
to contribute to the length of the
line. The University of Toronto
brass band will take part In the
performance, and it is expected
a number of student performers
will stago a scries of outdoor entertainments in the paved area in
front   of   Hart   House.
Seeking to co-ordinate all campus drives for funds by amalgamating them In the project, the
committee is on the alert for all
now possibilities which will bring
the first leg of Us drive to a successful conclusion. Dance committees have been requested by
the Students' Council to devote
their proceeds to the I.S.S. funds
for needy students In foreign
countries who have been deprived
by war of opportunities to study,
While other money-raising schemes being carried out hi the individual faculties and colleges are
throwing thiir support behind the
"March of Dimes" program. The
committee is seeking the aid and
Ideas of all persons in the University who are able to co-operate In
helping the drive reach its objective.
HEADACHES
Headaches are fairly common on
the committee as thc methods ot
keeping the coins in place and
making provisions for the coins to
be guarded 'are being considered.
Tlie possibility of the drive extending into a second day makes
It necessary, for example, eltkier
to provide a night-shifting guard
for the line of money or to take
the coins in and lay them out
again the following clay, either
contingency precipitating a host
of problems.
The original plan put forward a
month ago by the executive of the
Victory Club, which discussed
with the Superintendent, the president and other University officials the possibility of laying down
a line of coins. While the original
scheme was approved In principle
mechanical difficulties appeared
on all sides.
Final arrangements were submitted to President Cody and the
President turned them over to the
Students' Administrative CouncU
jvhich investigated the situation,
decided to sponsor the drive Itself, and proceeded to appoint the
committee, which Included officials of the victory  club.
Jungle Scenes

• MOVIE SHOTS showing the
job of capturing and training
young elephants, a fight to tho
death between a mongoose and _i
deadly hooded cobra, and wild
antelope racing through the forest
were illustrated In the "Travelogue of Wild Life in the Indian
Jungles" that thrilled students
who filled the Auditorium Wednesday  noon.
The film, shown under the auspices of the Film Society, belongs
to Major C. C. Wilson, C.I.E., V.D.,
soldier traveller, and big game
hunter, late of the Indian Forest
Service and Bengal Lancers. Tho
scenes shown were taken by Major
Wilson while in the Indian Forest
Service, and gave the audience an
Idea of the .thrill and fascination
of such a life.
The Major described the scenes,
and, between reels, enlivened the
audience with stories ancl anecdotes  of  his  work.

e     HATS OFF to the Frosh basketballers.    With the Christmas holidays marking the halfway mark of the season,
the small fry are the only Varsity hoop team who have won
a game.
e    BEST OF LUCK to ex-chief, Jack Ferry.    Ferry, who

Outstanding man for the losers
was centre scrum man Red Lindsay.
Others to star for the losers were
Gus Carmlchael and Raymond H.

work of these stars the speedier

proved too much for the Fijis. Bob

"soon".
That was two months ago, and soon has not arrived.
Starting today yours truly makes a cheerful exit and leaves
the fourth page entirely in the hands of "the curly haired
Phi Delt."
We've had a lot of fun and a baby.
The fun comes about through haggling with athletic
managers, coercing reporters, and having people ask us how
we feel after Lionel Salt reveals the hectic life of a sports
editor.
And, oh yes, the baby.
That was our old friend of the prostituted name, Convivus Scribit. Jake tells us that he's not going to have a
baby, but is going to bringthis one up. The next event in
its life should be the reply by Gordon MacFarlane for the
Big Block Club to Salt's plea for block letters for sports
editors.
And before we leave the rubbing table, otherwise
known as the sports desk, we think it only fair to make a
public apology. (And we don't mean for false facts or typographical errors—we never apologize for them). But we
do wish to express regrets for any embarassment caused to
anybody by the Co-ed Sports column in the last issue. It's
only fair to tell you it was not constructed entirely by its
usual authors.
And now, as we say farewell to the land of demanding
managers, glory-seeking athletes, lackadaisical reporters, who
all want by-lines, and other publicity hounds, we begin our
journey to the land of general yahoos, where there are demanding club presidents, glory-seeking actors, lackadaisical
reporters ,who all want by-lines, and other publicity hounds.

Youthful Hoop Star,
Bob Davie, Recovering
•    MANY   PEOPLE   have        ————————
been inquiring about the
absence of Bob Davies recently. It may interest these
to know that he has had a
bit of tough luck being confined to hospital for several
weeks and is now recuperating at home.
Starting the game with one man
short the campus team held their
own with the burly Roc. team
Doug. Todd arrived iust before
half time, and added the needed
strength to punch home the all
Important goal. Todd took a pass
from George North and slammed
home the ball which meant the
game.
COPS IN FIRST PLACE
Stu. "Rochester" Roach and Fred
Sasaki, two of the team's regulars,
wero absent because of bad colds.
Mel. Oughten replaced Roach at
tho fullback spot and played a
good game. Laury "Slug" Young,
Oughten's mate in the back position, played one of his best games
of all season.
This win for the squad puts them
definitely in second place till after
tin holidays. To date they are
one and one-half games from the
league leaders, the Clly Police.
According to the soccer manager,
Jim McCarter, the team will have
to be rebuilt after Christmas. The
old exam, axe is sure to take a
toll of the first line squad. Also,
regular Dave Thompson, one of the
teams outstanding men up to now,
will not be returning for the 1942
schedule.
Six or seven games remain In the
New Year season, and It appears
as If the play-off race will develop
between Varsity and the City
Cops.

Shean, Morton, Oughten, Young,
Johnston.
He started back at his Pre-Med.
cour.se this term but one clay took
Mck and up to now has been unable to resume his studies. Last
summer Bob finished up his German at summer school to enable
him to spend more time on the
scientific end of curriculum. After getting his B. A. degree at U.
B.C. he hopes to continue on with
his studies at McOill University,
specializing  in  Bacteriology.
Bob has been particularly interested In tennis and basketball having played for the Frosh and Senior Bee squads on the campus. He
was a fast, tricky player and In the
opinion of many people he should
have rated a place on the Senior
A line-up.
Let us wish Bob a speedy recovery. All his friends at the University hope to see him back again.
