Plant  Series
of Lectures
Varied Topics
A series of lectures on the
social problems of communities entitled, "The Modern
Approach to Community Welfare," has been arranged by
Prof. Robert England, head of
the Department of University
Extension, as a further unit
in his Adult Eduoational
work.
Thia ooutm, presented in collaboration with the Council of Social
Agencies, will be given by mtmbtn
of the staff of the University and
recognised authorities in social welfare work. It will include lectures
on such topics as public welfare,
mental hygiene and public health,
and will probably prove of much
value to Varsity students, Prof.
England intimated.
Another important feature of
. the Extension work will be the
visit of Orummond Wren, organ*
Ising secretary of the Workers'
Educational Association of Can*
ada, and E. Corbett, director of
the Canadian Association of
Adult Education, under the ana*
Siee of the latter organisation,
ose two men will speak In Van*
eouver and Victoria the laat week
of January.
Prof. England stated that the
work of his department has been
received enthusiastically in the
numerous communities touched.
Study groups have been formed in
approximately 40 different British
Columbia towns, whose work will
be supplemented by lectures of various University professors, including three of the deans. Lectures
over the radio are also being continued.
Pamphlets dealing with the series
of lectures to be given in Vancouver
may be obtained from Prof. England's room in the Aggie Building.

By CL«M L. KINO
UNIVERSITY OF ALBERTA,
Edmonton, January 1. (W.I.P.U.)—
The University of Alberta, Department of Extension, are organising a
branch of the National Film Society
of Canada. This society exhibits
films of literary and scientific interest that It would not be otherwise possible to see. Pictures from
all foreign countries are available,
as well as those from England and
America. A program was held some
weeks ago In an effort to "feel
out" public opinion; and the society, receiving the enthusiastic response of an oversise crowd, Is rap-
Idly bringing the organisation details to a close, so that In the near
future these Interesting programs
will be available to all who wish
to attend.

Rhodes  Scholar
Has   Enviable
U. B.C. Record
With a brilliant and enviable recordjn scholastics, de-
batng, and dramatics, Oavle
Fulton has well earned for
himself this year's award of
the Rhodes Scholarship. Aside
from these three major activities, he was also a member
of the rowing club.
Fulton came to U. B. C. from
Kamloops High School, and entering with senior matriculation, obtained a first-class average every
year. He majored In Classics, English, and Government, and In his
final year made a first class in
every subject
PLAYSRS'   CLUB   MIMIIR
His record in the Players' Club Is
no less enviable than is his record
In scholastics. Fulton took part
m two spring plays, this achievement In Itself insuring him a place
among the more prominent members of the club. Students can remember his fine performance last
year as Hastings In "She Stoops
to Conquer." Before that he played
a leading part In "Caesar and Cleopatra." The year before last he
assisted In directing scenes from
"Hamlet," and he has also taken
part in a homecoming play.
In the Parliamentary Forum, Fulton has been no less prominent.
He took part In two major debates
and oonsequeutly has reoelved his
gold award. Aside from this, he
has been a member of the executive for the past two years.
CANADIAN STUDENTS ARE
ISOLATIONISTS - McGILL
"Daily" Survey of Dominion Universities'
Opinions on War
In the recent survey conducted by the McGill Daily in
an attempt to determine the line points of Canadian Btudent
opinion on peace and war, the general trend appeared to be
toward isolation and away from v possible entanglements
which might lead to Canada being involved in a disastrous
European war.
Alberta Steers Win
At Toronto Fair
UNIVERSITY OF ALBERTA,
Edmonton, January 1. (W.I.P.U.)—
The University of Alberta scored
at the Toronto Royal Fair by winning the two highest awards, those
of grand champion and reserve
grand champion. Starlight U.A., a
roan shorthorn, won the grand
championship, and Dick of Sandy
Lake, an Aberdeen-Angus, won the
second award. The University won
eight first places at the Fair, together with many other awards.
This prominent showing at the
Royal Fair brings out the splendid
work that the University Is doing
for livestock breeders in Alberta,
in helping them to improve and
standardise their stock. A total of
16 head of cattle were sent to represent the U. of A. in the Alberta
exhibit.
HENDERSON WINS AWARD
Following the Board of Governors' meeting of Dec. 23, it was announced that Albert Edward Henderson would be awarded a Summer Session Students' Association
Scholarship of $30. This award is
made annually to the student in
summer session who completes the
second year with the highest standing.
Some universities, while opposed
to war in any form, expressed the
fatalistic opinion that in event of
Britain being drawn Into a major
conflict nothing could stop Canada
from rallying to her support. Others were more optimistic, preferring to believe that the memory of
1914-1918 la still fresh and strong
enough to prevent any mass emotional movement toward war by the
people of this country.
While   the   statements   formulated by editors of various Canadian   university   publication,   to
exprees the views of the majority
of atudente en each campus, and
printed   In   the   "MoQIII   Dally,"
were  similar on the whole, several quotations wsre particularly
striking, either beeauae of their
adequate summing  up of the  Is-
euee Involved, or beesuse of unusual sttltudee dl.oloa.d by thsm.
"One is led to suspect that Canada has some definite understanding with Great Britain concerning
Canada's part in a future war," declared the "McGill Daily."
"We feel that the Canadian
people should be informed of the
commitments of our Government.
. . . The time to discuss theBe matters is today, when we have time
—not tomorrow, when the drums
are beating."
STUDENTS  WOULD  ENLIST
"The Western Gasette" voiced
the fatalistic attitude noticed on
some campuses. "The students . . .
would undoubtedly, despite their
somewhat hollowly-expressed pacifist opinions, be found enlisting If
Canada were to become involved in
a war, even though the theatre of
war were in Europe. It is apparent
that you can no more make men
pacifists by preaching the terror of
war than you can make them
righteous by preaching the horrors
of hell."
"The Brunswlcklan" feels that
"Canada's war polioy should be
one of paa.lve belllgerenoe In the
event of the empire becoming Involved or a pro-League policy."
"The Ubyssey" introduced an Issue not, previously recognised, the
danger incurred by Canada In the
event of an American-Japanese war,
in which case "British Columbia
would be the obvious Belgium
through which Japan would attack
the States." To lessen this danger
It was suggested that Canada should
educate the population of the Pacific Coast in proper behaviour In
case of attack. Another concrete
suggestion was the possibility that
Canada could help her allies In a
war more by producing for tbem
large supplies of wheat, mineral
products, and lumber, than by
sending armies Into the fields.
BOMBSHELL
A bombshell from Mount Allison
University stated that "Most of the
men on this campus believe In the
divine right of the Canadian government to conscript," while "The
Varsity" of Toronto declared: "We
all loathe and abhor war; yet
'breathes there a man with a soul
so dead' who does not Instinctively
straighten his shoulders and quicken his step when he hears the
drums  beat?"

Christmas exam results
have taken their usual toll of
students this year, according
to Information supplied by
the registrar's office. The
death knell was wrung for a
total of 64, of which number
six were asked to discontinue
their present course and 68
were asked to withdraw for
the remainder of the current
year.
Of the 88 who have withdrawn,
28 were in Arts—17 in the first
year, 7 in the second ,and one in
Social Service, and the remaining
88 were registered in Science, 88
in second year and 8 in the third.
In addition to the above casualties,
8 were forced to reduce their
courses, and several athletes were
warned by the dean.
The unlucky students were allowed to enjoy their Christmas undisturbed by thoughts of the future, for they were not notified by
mail until laat Wednesday night,
after the Senate had met and decided on the action to be taken. The
number of victims is much the same
as previous years, compared to the
total enrollment.

35 Graduate
Receives Praise
Deborah Alsh, a graduate of '85,
who Is now doing post-graduate
work at the University of Paris,
was complimented by M. Louis Gil-
let of the Aoadamto Francaise on
her M.A. thesis which was chosen
for inclusion In an exhibition of
foreign studies of modern French
literature. M. Gtllet described the
thesis as "a work of learning" testifying to the teaching of French as
a language of "humane Interests."
Exchange Student
System Popular
A scholarship plan which is proving popular is the inter-Canadian
university exchange system. The
object of the plan is to enable specially selected students to attend
for one year, another university In
Canada, in order to act as a check
on the tendency of a student to become restricted in outlook.
The student applying for one of
these scholarships must be fairly
representative of the student body,
in the third year, or higher if he
intends to return to his home university for another year's work.
The students are chosen by a Selection Committee appointed by the
Student Council, the. important
thing kept in mind being that only
students of ability, be sent out as
ambassadors.
Subject to certain exceptions no
student is allowed to apply for these
scholarships unless he plans to take
work in a different division than in
his home university. There are four
geographical divisions! B. C, Prairie Provinces, Ontario and Quebec,
and the Mar i times. All universities
will accept candidates in all faculties except Medicine or Dentistry.
Exchange students are exempt
from tuition fees, which in most
cases, makes up for the cost of
transportation from their home to
the university.   -
Further information on the exchange system may be obtained
front the Registrar or the President
of the Alma Mater Society.
The Book Exchange will be open
for a short time for the sale of second term books. Second term books
thould be brouflht in Immediately. Two

"CANADA AND THE NEXT WAR"
A Composite  Editorial
(Ed. Note: Ths "McQIII Dally" has attsmpted to review ten
editorials contributed by other university publications, Including
the "Ubysssy," and to prassnt the prevalent views In this composite editorial representing Canadian studsnt opinion on war snd
peaee.)
• • *
A comprehensive survey of Canadian student opinion
lndioates an awakened consciousness throughout the length
and breadth of the Dominion concerning the Issues of war
and peace. Thought and opinions on the subject are not
completely crystallised; nor do Canadian students speak
with one voice... None the less there is strklng uniformity
along basic lineB—best characterised by general tendencies
or leanings towards a few central ideas.
These are:
An almost oomplete oensure of oonsoription and
indications that It would be aotvely opposed.    Only In
one or two oonservative areas was this statement belied.
A definite support of a Pan Amerioan Union.
More   strongly   than  any   other  view,   undergraduate
opinion throughout Canada suggests that, while American
support of Canada in case of an emergency Is essential and
Invaluable for our safety, this support would not be fully
forthcoming if we were entangled to any particular degree
with Oreat Britain in foreign or even domestic allegiance.
We should be firmly aware of this delicate point and, for
ths reason tread cautiously the tight-ropes of "British" war
participations or agreements.
Following on from this and in part subservient to it, campus papers
show a 50-60 stand on the question of. Increased Canadian defence.
Emphasis is laid on the im'practicality and expense ot any defence
scheme, independent of its political desirability.
DEPLORE "EMOTIONALISM"
A sincere plea is heard for a critical rather than an emotional
attitude towards war, though in some quarters a fatalistic resignation
Is noted. Certain universities regretfully admit that they think Canadians will flock to the bugle-call it another war flames forth, regardless
of Its source or nature.
CLARIFICATION OF ISSUE WANTED
The lack ot concrete expression ot opinion on the general theme
of war and peace by the present Canadian government is given indirect
endorsatlon by undergraduates in their recognition of the difficulty of
formulating such opinion. Yet there is a sure demand for clarification
of the government's stand.
The League of Nations receives hesitant approval with an undercurrent ot criticism or doubt apparent.
It is agreed, with scarce a dissenting voice, that there is much
less prospect of Canadian youth supporting the government to the extent
that they did In 1914 if war came.
• ••UBS "NATIONAL"
Save en the Pacific Coast, and to a minor extent In the Marl-
times, there Is little or no regionalism reflected In the opinions.
Generally, the viewpoint la that the issues are national In
charaeter.
The problem of Canada'e participation In European ware
where Britain pursues her own policies la one that admits but
one conclusion:   Canada should  remain en the  sidelines.
We should keep out of European Wars.
ALL WE LIKE
SHEEP
By PEGGY HIGGS
From green pastures all we like
sheep returned to the fold. Bleating, with r«ft wool bandaging our
eyes that they might not see the
depredations of the wolf in the
fold, the v jlf that slumbered among
us but would wake to slaughter,
bleating we stumbled within the
barren pen, ewe lambs and rams
and over all the shepherd.
From the peace of the green hills
we had come, down from the far
range of deep  grass and cool dew
where the flock grazed far, alone
and unhampered in the measureless
freedom of earth and sky, content
within the bounds of unchanging
horizons. Past and future were not,
and the flock forgot the dark walls
of the fold, the slaughter pens and
the flashing death.
Till the red crook of the shepherd
flared in the sky, the dark clouds
gathered, and we were driven into
the lowland, fearful and uncomprehending. Again the high wallx
closed around us, packed in an
uneasy mass that moved as one
sheep. Dim memories of dripping
jaws and merciless knife crept in
the night. We wait for the wolf
who will rise again to slaughter.
Varsity has opened its doors.
Editorial
WAR AND THE B. C. COAST
(Editor's Note: This editorial was
the Ubyssey's contribution to the
survey on "Canada and the Next
War," conducted by the "McGill
Dally.")
The British Columbia coast most
probably regards the question of
Canada and the next war in a more
personal light than any other part
of the Dominion. This is due to the
possibility of an American-Japanese war, a remote possibility certainly, but nevertheless one that
should be considered. In such a war
British Columbia would be the obvious Belgium through which Japan
would attack the States. The United States and Great Britain would
undoubtedly protect the rest of the
Dominion adequately but the Pacific
oast as the battlefield would inevitably suffer disastrously,
Because ot this remote possibility of an American-Japanese war
we believe that the Canadian Pacific Coast hasn't an adequate defense
scheme. It Is here that the Department of National Defense should
concentrate its activities. There
certainly should be better arterial
roads to communicate with the
northern part of the coast. Military
units should be increased and given
more up-to-date equipment, A small
but adequate cruiser squadron
which would be capable of assuming a defensive while its exact
whereabouts were unknown is
necessary. Such a squadron could,
however, be provided by the United
States. What Canada should do is
to educate the population of the
Pacific Coast in proper behavior in
case of sudden attack. Similar
schemes of war education are being
carried out in Great Britain today.
If any part of Canada is attacked
by a foreign power the United
States would protect her. We believe that this would be the case
even if they were not pledged to
do so by the Monroe doctrine because for the sake of her own safety the United States could not allow
a belligerent nation to assume control of the Dominion. If Canada is
a party to British War the United
States might remain neutral but
most probably would eventually be
drawn into the conflict as she was
in the Great War.
We are not In favor of following
either a League of Nations policy
or a British foreign policy unreservedly. The former does not seem
to carry much weight with the majority of foreign nations and we do
not have enough voice In the forming of the latter.
Canada undoubtedly has not an
adequate military force to back any
international obligations however
her supplies of wheat and mineral
resources make her a power to be
reckoned with In case of war.
Theoretically the majority of students on the B. C. campus wish
Canada's foreign policy to be one
of isolation. However, realising
that such a policy is not altogether
practical in the modern world they
are divided on the question of being either pro-American or pro-
British. From a purely practical
viewpoint the pro-American seems
to be the moat reasonable alliance,
but from sentimental reasons the
majority on this campus favor a
pro-British policy. They do not,
however, carry this attitude so far
as to proclaim themselves ready to
go to war in order to help Great
Britain in any eventuality. Most of
the men on this campus believe that
they would not under any condition
fight in a European war if the safety of Canada itself was not involved. In any case they claim that
they would not approve of conscription.
A foreign war seems to be almost
inevitable in the near future and
Canada would find it difficult to remain completely neutral. In such
a war, however, it appears to us
that Canada could help her allies
more by producing for them large
supplies of wheat, mineral products
and lumber than by sending armies
into the fleldl. A war on Canadian
soil seems at the present to be very
improbable, and In such a war there
is no doubt but that Canada would
be found to be woefully unprepared.

THE PROBLEM OF HOLIDAY
LETTERS
ttteimoM
A big box of unanswered Christmas mall sits before me on the
table, taking the edge off my Happy
New Year. I have, hidden the accursed thing several times, but the
family insists on
keeping my conscience in pain
and successfully
conducts a dally
search for the
means of torture.
Getting letters is
delightful, especially the anonymous sort that
give you what for,
and — God bless
the writers — call
for no reply. But as for answering
letters, I am admonished by the
Preacher; there is no end to it and
it is a weariness to the flesh.
I have always envied Pro Bono
Publico and Indignant Cltlsen (two
old friends of mine) who write with
such ease and vigor to the correspondence columns. It is safe betting that they have no unanswered
Christmas mail, even although they
correspond with all the world. And
what seems miraculous to me, they
have one golden whale of a time in
doing so.
The only thing that has ever
made me eager to write an epistle
to the newspapers was my Elder
Columnar Brother's announcement,
last  week,  that  he had  "fixed the
mures up.
'Mures," I was
Toronto Alumni
Offer Scholarships
The Scholarship Committee of
the Alumni Federation of the University of Toronto offers two Open
Fellowships ot $500 each in the
School of Graduate Studies of the
University. These scholarships are
open to graduates and the qualification is standing at graduation or
in   post-graduate   work.
to remind him, is Latin for "Mice.
He was so confident of fixing up
those mice that I was about to invite
him to come live with me and be my
mouser.
But he went and spoiled it all by
hastening to point out, next day,
that Browning and he had really
"fished the murex up." This particular sport is of no use to the
family, and consequently the invitation perished in the wastebasket.
Meanwhile, the box still sits on
the table, and I can't ask Pro Bono
Publlco's help with it, for I don't
know his address. Perhaps my Elder
Brother would fix things up for me,
but I feel shy about asking him.
What is to be said to a far-off
friend who writes that his daughter
has her mother's temper and is singularly hard to control ? The situation plainly calls for some of my
pedagogical advice, but unluckily
my letter must be addressed to husband and wife together.
Then there is the case of a very
dear young person who tells me,
with exquisite formality, that "Your
Chinese pictures gave great pleasure to Ellen and I," and that she
hopes to see me soon. Indignant
Citizen would doubtless Improve the
occasion by pointing out to the child
that I have an unfortunate influence on youthful spelling asd grammar. But I don't know his address
either.
For a change, it will be easy
(though painful) to deal with a
graceless former student, now a
Doctor of Philosophy, who has the
Impudence to advise me "to keep
as sober and unobjectionable as possible." I brought him up with great
care and tenderness, and now the
serpent bites me in, the bosom.
Having set forth some of my own
epistolary worries, I invite your
heartfelt sympathies for a cousin
who has shown me the Christmas
letters from her children. An adolescent son remarks that "now the
boss is away, the makin's are
brought out at table and a fag is
smoked." There is something dreadfully impersonal and ominous about
the passive voice in that bit of
news.
Edmund, aged 12, is even more
startling:
"Dear Mother: Western Stories
and dime novels are flying round
the house thicker than Bibles.
"Yours quite dearly,
"Edmund."
For utter perfection of restrained
sentiment, I have never heard anything to equal "quite dearly."
My Christmas box yields no example of the pathetic note in correspondence, and so I append a letter from one Wells child to another.
As nearly as I can recall, it runs
like this:
"Dear Edward: I have had my
operation. As I am in great pain, I
think you should send me a small
present.
"Your loving brother,
George."

The Editor, Ubyssey.
Dear Madame:
It was with mixed feelings
that I read the report taken from
the exchange issue of the Sheaf,
by your paper. The impression obtained from the story In the first
place is that I wrote it, secondly,
that I used the opportunity to obtain some cheap publicity, thirdly, that I go about bragging of
some mythical power over the
feminine element, lastly, It made
me damned mad. They are unfortunate and fallacious.. Any time
spent on writing, after our return
from your city went toward overdue essays, so the report on the
trip was pieced together by bear-
say. I don't blame the Sheaf
(very much), it did the best It
could with the material at Its disposal, but It certainly illustrates
the comical meat things do turn
into.
I inquired into my case shortly
after It was put forth by the
paper. The first dlsoovery was
that the Chief Magistrate of Victoria had no daughters. This cut
short my Investigation. I realized how funny the thing really
was, but when I read your report
and saw the serious manner with
which It was treated I was Instantly galvanized into action,
this epistle being the sad result
of misplaced energy.
So with no more waste ot
words I send my regards to the
fine friends whom I met this year,
my hopes of seeing you next
year, my apologies to the mayor
ot Victoria and my thanks for
the space allowed In your columns.
I remain yours sincerely,
RUSTY MACDONALD.

October—A Rondel
The bracken now Is brown and dry,
And soft to earth the leaves fall dead.
The gaudy maples, gold and red,
Flaunt beneath a bright blue sky;
But sadly seems the stream to sigh
And whisper in Its stony bed:
"The bracken now is brown and dry
And soft to earth the leaves fall dead.
A bluejay shouts his happy cry,
A robin perching on the shed
Chirps gaily as he waits for bread,
But In among the woods nearby
The bracken now Is brown and dry
And soft to earth the leaves fall dead.
The Recalcitrant
We will not obey our fathers,
they live in old houses rusted and crumbling
with yesterdays.
We will not heed our fathers
who show us proudly
Old ways of doing old things.
We will not recognize our fathers
who have sinned and would have
us sin too.
We will not forgive our fathers
as they did not forgive theirs
only forget and go on.
A cut In wages, but that was not all. No. Three years
he had good-morninged the boss, attended night classes,
watched the girl at the switchboard, heard the incessant
chatter of typewriters, worked after hours wth the hope
of promotion in his heart. What a fool. Awfully sorry, you
know, but we've had to reorganise—mean a few changes—
you've done the work before—letting Moore go. Ood, they
had got tight at Moore's wedding two months ago. Well, If
It helped the firm—he'd made the Arm his firm, his boss—
told them at home what his firm was doing—his firm. Come
'long tonight, why donoha—each throwing in to get a bottle

you a world of good—sure, every Saturday.

Hey, waiter, four up!   Yeh, four—yeh, .and you see,
They'd kill the bottle before the dance—not taken much

the girls—
Beginning to feel good now. Who the hell cared about

Never again. Legs aching-—strained stomach—had a
swell time, though—swell time, hell—stuffy dance hall with
panted chippies—hated a girl who drank—well, they could
do this every week, but not him.
A revelation came last night. Not coherent, but nevertheless there In the disgust and self-loathing. He'd have a
fight to make—would he have that kind of fun every week,
garish dance hall, blaring opiate dreams—or would he give
his body and soul again to the firm to be spurned—or would
he flght. Fight what? The Arm or the dance hall, or both?
Somehow they had become inextricably mixed.
Deep underground he could fight both, caught in a force
he had fled from, a movement he had scorned, hated, feared
sometimes. He felt himself drawn, swept away among subterranean masses. Monday he would have a purpose; he
was freed into a greater bondage.

Miracle of Dfrsk
She walked down into the garden
When dusk was cool,
And stood in perfect stillness
By the little pool.
The reflected softness of sunset
In gradual pace
Brushed shadows like expressions
Across her face.

After the shower,
And in her rounded hand she held
A rain-drenched flower.
The drifting shadows with soft shapes
A miracle performed.
She stood with lilies In her hand,
Her face transformed.

I shall sing
Of ths vlotory that la to be, but will be not.
My song shall bs a hymn of battle
To those who go forth,
Hair In the wind, white teeth laughing, naked;
Who yearn for battle.
It matter* not that they ehall find no foe,
That the living steel the elenoh biasing.
Will be rust and mould.
My song shall tsll of the vlotory that will be not,
Of the heroes,
of the  Isurels,
of the joy and the shouting.

•Inning a song of pralss

A dream so beautiful that I forgot all,
oontent to live in faney,
forgetful of the fickleness thst Is the world's
And so my dream was an illusion
which blinded me
and hid the truth of his unfaithfulness.
Now he Is gone
I find myself alone
alone?—no,  not alone
for all about me He
the shattered fragments of my dream.
Some Still Noon
No ghosts haunt here where man has never been;
No dreams of sta. tied woodsmen going home.
An endless silent loneliness that breaks
OS branches, snaps the twigs from leafless boughs,
Alone lives here with me, while overhead
Remote tree tops swing creaking In the breese
Like cargo winches or loose cable wires,
Or roaring in a sudden gust of wind
Like surf on distant shores.    Up there the sun
As sifted sand through fingers drops in streams
Through needled patchwork in silent stealth.
The Grecian herdsman know a kindred spirit
In every knotted trunk and lichened rock;
Little people dwell in every English copse;
But here among our trees lives but one thing,
Silence like a cat-like lurking beast ot prey,
Creeps off the boughs and curia around the trunks.

C. O. C. T.  BOYS SUFFER
WARLESS CASUALTIES
From Christmas to New Year's
the C. O. T. C. thirty-nine strong,
were shipped over to the Victoria
Barracks for a week of "training."
Half a dosen of the boys have only
just returned, and until recently
could be found in the Work Point
Barrack's Hospital. Phil. Margetts,
Acton Daunt, Norm De Poe, and
Jack Heading1 were four ot the victims, Jack suffering from a couple
of cracked ribs, picked up "when he
fell out of bed" (end of quote).
Perhaps the greatest surprise of
all, however, was the deterioration
of the great Alan Morley, who,
with Rod Beavan, also saw the hospital for ssveral hours. These two
were liquidated for six S'clock drill,
evidently a strenuous process, so
pleaded hang-overs and were given
two ounces each of undiluted castor
oil with a heaping teaapoonful of
Epsom salts and were confined to
barracks for the remainder of the
day.
Although in training, the uniss
averaged from two to three hours
sleep daily, and look like itl
Canadian Students
_ (Continued from Page 1)
"War will never be ostracised
while soldiers maroh to music"
continued. "The Varsity." "Canada
cannot keep out of the next war unless Canadians grow up emotionally. When the parade goes past,
with | flags fluttering and swords
clanking, we must learn to think,
not of the- glorious trappings of
war our history books describe to
us, but of the cbarnel house that
was France tor tour years and the
crosses that are left."
Another pssslmlstlo note was
sounded by the same paper. "Undoubtedly, enemies will attack the
source of British armaments and
who knows but that Canada will
be the first point ot attack rather
than a safe haven of refuge," asked
the paper.
MoMASTBB ANTI-WAR
A questionnaire Issued by Mo-
Master University showed a strong
anti-war temper on the campus.
Thirty-five per cent of the total
number who answered stated that
they would not support their government In any war.
"The Gateway," Alberta, said that
ot the tour choices ot Canadian
war policies, namely, isolationist,
Fro League ot Nations, Pro American, Pro British Empire, Canada
should as closely- as possible follow
a Pro American policy. Several
universities seemed to be in sympathy with the idea ot a North
American alliance.
The League of Nations was
given very little verbal support.
"The Argosy Weekly" declared
Itself In favor of a League foreign policy, but not the pressnt
ons, beoauss:
"The League depends on foroe,
whloh   Is  unfortunate:   and  that
foroe doesn't exist, whloh lo still
more unfortunate."
"In general," stated the Weekly,
"our    attitudes    toward    the    war
question are  far  too much under
the influence of propaganda.    We
have   not   the   emotional   stability
necessary to withstand  the  press
and the radio."

"Take Some  Home"
DODSWORTH'
The following review of "Dods-
worth" was .written after a special performance at ths Orpheum
last month.    We pressnt It now
for the msny who havs not seen
this unusual film.
."DODSWORTH":    With    Walter
Huston, Ruth Chatterton, Mary As-
tor and Paul Lukas.    Produced by
Samuel Qoldwyn.
In "Dodsworth." Walter Huston
brings to the screen an unmistakably geneulne and Inspired characterisation of a typical American.
Sinclair Lewis' well-known Sam
Dodsworth as portrayed by Huston
rings true from beginning to end.
Ruth Chatterton as the wife
whose obsessing fear of growing old
finally loses her her husband gives
one of the finest performances of
her career, while Mary Astor, after
a long period in program pictures
and "qulckleB," proves that she can
still take her place In the front
rank. Paul Lukas lends his well-
tailored cosmopolitanism at the
correct moments.
Sidney Howard ("Allen Corn,"
"The Late Christopher Bean," etc.)
who bandied the adaption, has gone
very far toward catching the spirit
of the novel, so much so that evan
the author must have been pleased.
The story, concerning an American businessman who finally, at the
bequest of his neurotic wife, takes
the two to Burope, where Mrs.
Dodsworth engages In what are at
first harmless flirtations, but which
develop Into more serious affairs.
Afraid of old age, she seeks the
society ot people younger than herself, and eventually persuades her
husband to return home without
her.
Discontented at home, and suspecting the truth, Sam Dodsworth
sails tor Burope, having his Paris
agent make a quiet Investigation
meanwhile. The first affair is uncovered, and he forgives a tearful
wife. At her request, the oouple
remain In Burope, going to Vienna.
Another affair is started by winter, this time more serious, so serious that when Bam remonstrates
mildly, Fran announces her intention of getting a divorce. While
they are waiting tor the decree,
Sam drifts about Burope, finally
meeting Mrs. Cartwtight (Mary Astor) in Naples. After a six week's
stay he Is ready to go back to
work, on a new project In aviation,
with Mrs. Cartwrlght as the second
Mrs. Dodsworth.
The usual obstacles present
themselves when the aristocratic
family of Fran's Austrian gallant
forbid their marriage, and she Immediately telephones Sam to take
her home. The habit of 20 years
drives him to do so. But at the last
minute, when the boat is about to
sail, he is so irritated at her attempts at conversation, which only
emphasise the gulf between them,
that he leaps on the parting gangplank and returns to Napt n. his
aviation, and the presumably future
Mrs. Dodsworth.
"Dodsworth* is a picture, which
should go on your "Must" list for
the coming week.—N. R.  D.
I SAW...
By O. O. BUBBLES
A horse in a field. It was running. I was chasing it. I was hanging onto the horse's tail.
A purple light. When the purple
light changed to red it was a danger signal. I had to stop then. I
didn't stop. I swallowed the purple
light,
A cold piece of liquid sun in a
glass.   When I looked again the
sun was gone.
Some Siamese quintuplets. They
flickered.   I think they were boiled.
A lot of people running around.
They were worried.   I was in the
middle.  They were running around
me in circles. I was unhappy. They
did   not  like   me  because  someone
was dropping 0I4. iron on the floor.
I did not like them either.   I was
very   uncomfortable.
Suns and moons revolving
around a rotating planet hung on
a sharp axis which was attached
to the North Pole by a string.
The axis was awingnlg in deep
swoops. It was coming closer to
me, with the sharp edge sparkling. I could see the string fraying.
Somebody' giving me things
mixed just as the string broke. The
sun and moons had exploded into
blackness. I was alone and very
unhappy. I knew if I thought about
it I would discover something very
unpleasant. It was easier to go to
sleep.

up the good work and ended the
period leading 31-8.
In the second stanaa, the Churchmen woke up and cut the students'
lead to four points .with sight minutes to go. At this point the regulars returned to the floor to put the
game away for the Thunderbirds.

Blue and Gold squad accounting for

was chosen to guard the Rep
team net in their annual match
against an all-star team from
the High Schools. Aiding her
was another co-ed, Margaret
Evans .picked by the Selection
Committee to fill in the difficult
position of left halfback.
Both girls, prominent players
of the U. B. C. team, are members of the Big Block Club. Bea
last'year played goal for the Rep
eleven, but this was Margaret's
first game in all-star competition, although she previously
played for the High Schools
while attending Lord Byng.

TRACK
In spite of the rigours of the
weather the Traoksters will begin
practising for their coming meet in
Victoria, Joe Rita announced today.
However, while the sub-freezing
weather prevails the practices will
be held in the gym. Tomorrow's
wanti-up will commence at 12
o'clock and all trackmen are asked
to turn out.
The orchid-bearing McKechnie <
Cup winners, who blanked Victoria
Reps 10-0 a few weeks ago, are getting the old whitewash ready for
the North Shore All-Blacks, whom
they meet in the final game of the
Miller Cup series on January 16th.
Although the Varsity ball-busters
have dropped one game to their
funereal opponents, the confidence
provided by the presence of the big
silver trophy on the campus gives
them a very favourable edge. Captain Dave Carey reports that his
charges are flourishing, and that in
itself is an indication that the inspiration that has driven the Blue
and Oold to so many victories already is still present in large quantities.
TISDALL CUP SERIES
Two teams, one First Division
and one Second, are to be entered
In the knockout series planned for
the Tisdall Cup.  This bit of silverware was not played for last
year, and Varsity is out to get It
now that it is again In the field.
Practices will be held in the Gymnasium at noon on Wednesday and
Friday, to work off a bit of that
holiday feeling, and get the boys
back into fighting trim for the cmo-
ing contests.
Weather permitting, there will be
two, or possibly three teams bearing the colours of U. B. C. into the
field this coming Saturday, but details are not yet forthcoming as to
where and to whom the play will
be taken.
Dave Carey asks that a report be
published that the Executive of the
Men's Athletic Association will
meet on Friday noon henceforth, in
place of the Monday gatherings.
CONGRATULATIONS
In keeping with the spirit of
goodwill and wellwishing that characterizes this time of year, the
sports department feels that a word
of congratulation would not be out
of order to the English Rugby Club,
on behalf of the whole student
body, for its splendid showing this
year in the Miller and McKechnie
cup series.
Perhaps more than any other
club, so far this year ,thye deserve
praise; for in no sports organisation at the university is so evident
that spirit of enthusiasm, co-operation and fairpiay. And that the
reason for their success has been
due to this spirit, no one will question.
Let us only hope that other clubs
will use them as a model.
