For Xmas
Work Poor
• LACK of co-operation of
University   students   in
registering for Christmas
jobs has caused the Employment Bureau to extend the
period of registration until
Thursday, November 25.
Up until noon Thursday, then*
had been only 330 students registered,   whereas the  goal  of  the
Bureau is 1200.
These students are urgently
needed in the Post Office and the
department stores. Every student
who is in town and can possibly
do so, is requested to work in thh
Student who have already arranged for Christmas jobs are also
required to register, but they will
begiven space on their forma to
indicate their employer's name.
This registration is required, because all jobs, whether arranged
by the student or the Employment
Bureau, must go through the National Selective Service downtown.
Evidently there is a misunderstanding among the women students about Xmas jobs, It should
be noted by all female students of
the University, they are just as
urgently needed as the male students.

• CO-EDS REALLY LET LOOSE at the Hi-Jinx on Monday night, as can be seen by this
picture. Reading from left to right, Joy Donegani, Casey King, Babs McPherson, Dorothy
Moxon and Jackie Vance are surprised by Ubyssey cameraman Art Jones, who sneaked into
the gym with reporter Blunden, took the picture, and ran for his life.
Ubyssey Scouts Came,
Saw, Shocked At Hi-Jinx
• AT MORTAL RISK to life and limb photographer Art Jones, pushed by a Ubyssey editor,
crashed the time-honoured secrecy of the Hi-Jinx Monday night, to bring back to civilization a hair-raising story of women in red-flannel underwear and countless tales of female
barbaric rites.
Under cover of a blanket of fog,
Mr|. Jones and editor Mr. Blunden
scouted the gymnasium and finally
succeeded in gaining entrance
through the help of a fifth columnist, by way of a chimney, just like
Santa Caus.
What went on at the Hi-Jinx
shocked the Ubyssey representatives as they have been shocked
many times before.
Prancing around the gymnasium
floor was an assortment of gaudily appareled women, all evidently letting loose suppressed desires
in what they thought waa secrecy.
At approximately 8:00 Phyllis
Bishop herded everyone into one
end of the gym and began to get
relay races going.
One of the best of these was
when the girls began to shed clothing with- each trip across the floor.
At the crucial moment, with Art
Jones hanging by his teeth, they
began to put the clothes back on.
This ranks as one of the most disappointing moments in the career
of two men.
Finally at the end of the relays
a beauty contest started, with all
the georgeous (?) costumes being
paraded about the floor, accompanied with frenzied motions and
yells from the women.
At this point, Art Jones stepped
out with camera In hand and snapped a picture of five of the most
barbaric of the women—see above
Amid screams and cries of anguish and fear from female throats,
the two male peeping toms whisked through a convenient exit and
disappeared Into the fog, silently
muttering about cave women and
the younger generation.
Women are funny . . . especially
in Red Flannel Underwear.

Reduced Carfare
A resolution passed in council last
Monday night provided for a committee to
investigate the possibilities of obtaining
special reduced rates for university students
on the B. C. Electric Street Railway system.
In view of the greater number of students who are now forced to travel on the
street cars because of gas rationing, such a
concession would benefit the majority of
students at the university.
High School students in the city are
allowed to travel for the same fare as the
children under five, because they are still
attending school.
Figuring on the basis of a six day week
at Varsity, a student pays on the average of
one dollar and eleven cents a week carfare
to and from the university. This does not
include extra trips which every student must
make each week besides.
The average student at the university
has no regular weekly income, as have most
other adults using B. C. Electric facilities.
Would it not be possible for the company to
make some allowance for these students?
Judging from the recent cancellation of
November bills owing the B. C. Electric, the
company is decidedly not in dire financial
difficulty. At any rate, a small reduction in
the fare, while it would be inconsequential
to business, would be of great assistance to
the individual student.
Let us take a sample computation, making a conservative estimate of fifteen hundred students travelling daily on the street
cars and buses of the city. During the week,
at the present rate of fare, they would pay
a total of $1665. If the fare were reduced to,
say, five cents instead of the regular seven,
the total income to the company from these
students, per week, would be $1440, meaning
a loss of only $270. The saving for each
student would be twenty-four cents. A small
amount perhaps, but it would be well appreciated nevertheless.
Council members state that students who
travel from districts outside the city limits
to the campus are required to pay less for
transportation than those students who'live
closer to the university. They are allowed
a reduced rate.
Senior matriculation students, not at the
university, pay the regular school fare, while
they are the same age, and in the same year
of schooling as freshmen at UBC.
It seems that there should be some
arrangements possible which would not be
too great a tax on the B. C. Electric's finances. The Students' Council is to be commended for its attempt to put such arrangements through.
Student Opinion
•   TWO SATURDAYS ago the Department
of Education at Victoria made a statement to the press that there is a possibility
of instituting the Russian and Chinese languages into the schools. Three weeks prior
to this, a student member of one of the international clubs on the campus had already
advanced this idea to his fellow members
before the Department of Education had
ever entertained this question.
The same student advocate had even
gone farther than that, for he had already
got in touch with two persons, one for Chinese and one for Russian, who were willing
to come and teach any students interested
in acquiring the speaking knowledge of the
respective languages as a club project or as
a hobby once every week.
This question deserves the attention of
the students. Not only is it timely, but extremely important that we in the west start
thinking internationally. In the past it has
been felt that English, French, German,
Spanish, and the classics were sufficient in
the field of language. Today the focus of
civilization has shifted away from Western
Europe. It has become diffused in an inter
national sense, but still stereotyped tradition
rules in many of our universities. In a world
incomparably smaller than twenty years ago
the language question must receive more
adequate consideration.
Across Canada other universities have
recognized the need of establishing Chinese
and Russian language departments. We in
B.C. are just beginning to consider it. The
University of Toronto and McGill both have
separate departments of Chinese and Russian. The University of Saskatchewan has
a Russian language department. When will
UBC recognize the merits of establishing
similar departments?
Apparently Occidental clubs at Toronto
and McGill were instrumental in persuading
their respective Senates to establish the new
language departments. It must also be recognized that there are few Chinese students
at these Universities, so the decision was not
one to favour a small minority—yet, at UBC
there are approximately fifty Chinese»
Recently the University President commented to the press, "If and when the Senate
is convinced there is need for these languages . . ., it will be time enough to consider
the question." Therefore, if the need is real,
the opportunity must be clear to the
From the trade and commerce standpoint, it is clear there will be a tremendous
post war development in the Pacific coast
area. Students of B.C. should therefore be
put in a position where opportunities will
be available to them both at home and a-
broad. This then will call for the maintenance of commercial communications with the
two great powers across the Pacific. The
knowledge of the Oriental and Russian
languages will thus become a great asset.
If China can take in 150,000 European
refugees in the midst of her life and death
struggle, and, in contrast with Canada which
had only taken in 382 for the same period,
(since Pearl Harbor) it is evident then that
the spirit of Democracy means more in
China than it does in Canada. If China is
able to accommodate European refugees,
then it stands to reason that she will more
than welcome western educated people.
Here, then, is where knowing the Chinese
language will be of great help. The same
can be said for the Russian language.
From the moral standpoint Canada has
an obligation to uphold, the Atlantic-
Charter. If Canada is to adhere, to theAt-
lantic Charter, then it must be her duty to
foster goodwill on the Pacific also. In fostering goodwill, some culture of the two great
Pacific powers should be made known and
understood by Canadians. In order to get a
better insight into any culture, what then
is a better medium than language?
As it has been pointed out briefly above,
the knowledge of Chinese and Russian languages are very important in post-war, especially for B.C., what then can we do a-
bout it? If we are mindful of how long it
took UBC to establish the Spanish and
Home Economics departments then we
should see to it that there is not the same
delay attached to the establishment of the
Chinese and Russian languages.
A poll will be taken on this issue. Please
answer the questions below with either
"yes" or "no".
1. Would you favour the establishment
of a Chinese language department at
2. Would you favor the establishment or
a Russian language department at
3. If one of the campus organizations
should initiate the respective languages in the program as a project or
hobby, would you be willing to join
or support it?

• Paragramma
been made that the tone
of Mock Parliaments should
be humorous rather than
serious. It was suggested
that comic issues should be
debated, not vital questions
of the day.
Mock Parliaments provide students with a medium for the expression of political views. They
create a realistic setting for the
expression of those views.
There are clubs on the campus,
it is true, that discuss politics. But
the Mock Parliaments provide all
socialists among the students with
an opportunity to debate political
questions in a formalized manner.'
If Mock Parliaments were conducted in an atmosphere of comedy, they would provide their participants with an evening of div-
ertion and, perhaps, would familiarize them with parlimcntary
It would take just as much effort
on the part of the speakers to
draw up arguments for comic issues as it does to draw up arguments for serious issues. The realistic tone provides an evening of
diversion and familiarizes students
with parliamentary procedure. It
also gives expression to opinions
on questions of immediate interest.
Last February, there was ana-
ttempt to stage a spring session of
the Mock Parliament. The at-
temp died a slow death from indeterminate causes.
There are many issues that were
not touched on in Wednesday evening's sitting of the Mock Parliament. A spring session could not
deal with all of them, but it
would serve to clarify some questions.
Much of the credit for the success of the Mock Parliament—and
for the success of many of the
Parliamentary Forum's activities-
should be given to Jim Wilson,
the Forum's vice-president.
Wilson is rapidly becoming the
busiest and most harassed man
on the campus. Besides other activities, he is on the executive of
two clubs and is the life blood of
at  least one.
There is reason to believe that
Wilson doesn't entirely believe
in the style of his professed politics. It is a tribute, therefore, to
his organization powers and to his
skill as a debator that the C.C.F.
were so admirably led.

Rambunctious Reporters
Revolt; Fight Filthy Five
*   BLOODY revolution is raging in the depths of the Brock
as reporters battle for emancipation.
The reporters, enraged by such editorial practices as
sharpening reporters wits in the pencil sharpener, stuffing
them head first into coke bottles, and flattening them out for
use as copy paper, have banded together to combat the
The Benevolent Union of Rambunctious Pubsters (note initials)
as the reporters call themselves
has finally received recognition
from the Flithy Five (after defeating them in several pitched
br4tles,) and is now able to guarantee a reasonable amount of safety to its members.
Since the formation of the BURP,
disappearances of reporters have
been cut in half, living conditions
in the pub dungeons hame been
improved to such an extent that
prisoners now receive food once
every three days, and the penalty
for missing a deadline has been reduced to death.
Another Improvement hoped for
at some future date is the use of
lead for type which will make lt
unnecessary to melt down the
usual number of assistant editors
on press days.
Union spokesmen report that as
yet none of the union executive
have been done to death by more
than the most humane means, and
this is considered to be a clear
Indication that the dictatorial powers of the Filthy Five are waning.

as was quite evident at their tough
tussle with Hedlunds Inter "A's"
at V.A.C. Wednesday night. As
usual, the Varsity youngsters were
left holding the bag, scoring only
four points against the thirty-
three hung up by their snappy opponents.
Although the team is not much
good at putting the melon through
the hoop or working out team play,
their energy and enthusiasm more
than makes up for lack of skill.
With more practice they should
turn into a good solid team by the
end of the season.

Intramural volleyball on Monday
was one big flop owing to the failure of Irresponsible team members
to turn out. Women on the campus don't seem to realise the importance of Intramurals in college
sports This may be due to the
fact that they have been used to
extramural competition in high
school, and look down on Internal
sports as small stuff, not worthy
of their best.
It should be pointed out to them
that many large colleges allow
their women to play intramurals
only, and that the standard of play
i; equally as good as that of leading professionals.
The level of play in Intramural
names at U.B.C. is reasonable good
but could be greatly Improved by
r. little serious self-application on
the part of those who play.
Barb Greene and her class manager put a lot of hard work Into
making the Intramural program
run smoothly and efficiently; cooperation with these managers will
help to put Intramurals into their
proper place on the campus.
Come on Women! A little more cooperation in the future!
