—OTTAWA,   December  30.
The war clouds which a year ago
were sometimes black — sometimes
rifted — but always menacing have
Anally broken; and a democratic,
peace-loving country finds Its people
on the advent of the New Year faced
with the stark reality and awful responsibility of being at war. This
overshadowing fact necessarily makes
all our national peace-time effort
fade Into the background; and, for
four months now, the effective carrying on of the war effort has been the
dominating force that has run
through all our action and governed
all our national life.
Aa aoon aa poaaible after war was
declared, labour made quite clear
Ita position and the extent of Ita
willingness to participate in Ita
succeaaful prosecution. Through Ita
repreaentatlvea It gave an unequivocal promise of one hundred per
oent oo-operatlon. In order that Its
efforts would be successful It asked
that the Industrial Disputes Investigation Aet be extended to oover
all war time industries. In addition,
the accredited repreaentatlvea of
labour have been moat diligent and
moat helpful in an endeavour to
iron out grievanoea and disputes
which, in less serious times, might
have resulted in friction and loss
of time and energy through industrial strife.
In view of the co-operative attitude
of labour generally it would be doubly
unfortunate if any attempt were
made under the guise of the necessities of war to eliminate or reduce
those advantages—whether ln wages,
in hours of labour or in the general
standard of living—which have accrued to Canadian labour during the
present century. I have no doubt that
this will not happen. But it must be
admitted that Just as labour has its
irresponsible   agitators   so   there   are
still some—I trust a very few—employers who begrudge each advance
which has been made In bettering
the conditions of work and living of
those who with their families depend
upon wages for their dally bread.
Both attitudes are equally inimical
to Canada's war effort.
It ls only fair to say that even
without our national emergency there
was a growing realization and appreciation of the Importance of the belief that industrial life should not be
a continuovis struggle between capital
and labour and that a frank and
complete recognition of a partnership
bases was the best for both and essential in the maintenance of our
industrial structure. This has best
been demonstrated by the wide extension of industrial agreements including  voluntary plans for co-oper-

Gone at last are the tragic thirties . . . once again the world
is enjoying a 'happy' New Year.
"We, in the far west of democratic Canada, ushered in the
proverbial 'infant' with much pomp, ceremony, and suitable frivolity. We were not worried or bothered by ration cards, blackouts,
air raid alarms or even air aids. Our family life was normal,
mothers lived with their children, and grandmothers still pottered
about doing their bit to make the holidays happy for their respective broods. People in the country were not expected to make
Christmas, or the New Year a merry time for evaenated small or
frail human beings probably suffering from severe homesickness.
In brief we Canadians enjoyed ofie of the best holidays of recent
But elsewhere in this quaint home of humanity raged full
scale wars. China still continued to resist the affectionate greetings
of altruistic Japan, and Finland—peaceful, contented land of the
North—threw her little might against the cultured and civilized
attacks of the befriending oggrossor, Russia, home of the 'New
Social Order.'
At the same time Great Britain, France, and the British
Empire tightened their stranglehold on the invincible land of
Naziism, whilst the latter merrily scuttled hero and there on the
oceans of the world. Although actual military activity appeared
to be almost non-existent, two contingents of fighting forces
arrived in England from Canada.
It might be assumed that tho real war between Germany and
her several enemies has not yet started, and that this year 1940
may have to see full many a day of the 'toughest sledding' known
to men.
Every student must have sometimes posed himself with difficult questions in connection with his duty as a Canadian citizen,
his future, his ordinary desires and ambitions, and he must have
felt a few creeping doubts tickling his mid-section when he took
stock of his international surroundings in the present world.
One class at this University, the seniors, probably took a
greater delight in surveying the future, and musing—perhaps not
without a slight attack of melancholia—on their immediate prospects of going forth to meet the world—to take up thei" burdens
of citizenship.
Every senior, or rather every student, will be forced to make
difficult decisions and choices during 1940.
The very best of kick, therefore, to the students of this University! May our* strength, courage, and sense of humour be equal
to any obstacles which 1940 may present! May this doubtful year
«lose with a triumphant return of peace and goodwill amongst
'us mortals.' l
For the information of the student body, and all others who
may be concerned, the Ubyssey, official publication of the Alma
Mater Society of the University of British Columbia has at last
vacated its former residence in Room 206 Auditorium Building
-and has occupied new space in the Brock Memorial Building.
Nestling in the basement, or rather lower gound floor, of the
North ;WinB> the Publications Board has been making a desperate
effort to retain its sanity and sense of control. With carpenters on
all sides creating the remaining equipment for the offices, with
some tons of debris, piled lumber, boxes and so on littering the
floor and with typewriters, desks, chairs, etc. . . . scattered about
the building, the staff of the Ubyssey found it difficult to function
quite as smoothly as under normal conditions.
Consequently if thero appear to be defects in the issue which
you may or may not be reading, the staff offers its sincerest apologies and informs you that it oan do nothing about it now. It is
improbable, however, that any faults can be found with this issue,
as there are none!
By the time that you have read this far you will realize that
the Editor is finding it increasingly difficult to fill tho space allotted to him.
Without more ado, then, oome nnd see the new offices. Wo.
the pub. think they aro rather fine!

$3,000,000 War Chest Drive. Over 800
atudenta signed caution money waivers contributing more than $1600 towards the A.M.S. objective of $2000.
U.B.C. Thunderbirda thoroughly
conquered the Saakatohewan Huaklea to retain the Hardy Cup. After
atubbornly refuaing to admit even
the exlatence of the 'Bird war machine, local sports commentators quit
prophesying as Van Vliet's army disposed of all opposition on ita march
to victory.
The 'Birds never lost a game.
(What a team! What a record!)
The University studenta can look
back on a glorioua year filled 'with
enviable achievements. They oan see,
recorded for all tlmea, the stories
of these men and women who, devoting both time and energy, helped develop the university traditions.
What 1940 brings is a matter of
conjecture. The studenta possess a
rich legacy.
They require  nothing more.

Delany supplied one-third of the
$100 expense and the club put up
another third, leaving about $30 yet
to be raised. This amount members
expect to collect by contributions
from interested citizens and a series
of whist drives and parties.
Reports from Delany, who ls doing
club organization work ln various
universities on his way home, reveal
six universities were represented at
the S.P.C. gathering.
He will arrive here ln about two
weeks and ln the meantime ls visiting
McOlll, Queens, Toronto, Manitoba,
Saskatchewan and Alberta campuses,
helping and exchanging views with
the Social Problems clubs there.

3 Per Cent, of Students
"Graduate" at Christmas
Of the 2300 students on the U.B.O.1
campus, three per cent, will not return for the Spring term, lt was officially announced yesterday. They
have been asked to withdraw because
of poor scholastic standing.
While the number of .students leaving at Christmas this year la slightly
ln excess of last year's number, lt
was stressed that this does not necessarily mean that the soholastlo standards of the University are lower.
This year's larger registration was
given as the reason for the Increased
number of failures.
Only those studenta who, ln the
opinion of the Faoulty and Senate,
faUed hopelessly were asked to withdraw. Scores of students who failed
ln their average or ln several examinations are still attending the University.
In cases of reasonable hope, studenta have been allowed to remain,
but have had to discuss their course
with the Dean of the Faoulty. In
cases of this nature, students have
been asked to drop certain courses.
Consideration is being given to each
individual case ln the beat Interests
of the atudent.
(Continued from Pago D
atlon, suoh as profit-sharing agreements, stock ownership, aooident and
health lnsuranoe for the* worker and
hla family and various other tangible
evidences of the growing realisation
of the necessity for co-operative effort
in Industrial organization.
One of the plans whloh has shown
a remarkably rapid growth Is the sale
of pension plans Issued by the Annuities Branch of the Department of
Labour to employers ln favour of
their employees. This plan has been
in effect less than two years and today over 10,000 employees are protected. The amount involved in the
purchase of these pensions runs into
millions of dollars. The plan ls designed to the end that a comfortable
pension will be provided for employees when they can no longer carry
on ln their employment.
But while our major thoughts must
necessarily be directed to the effective prosecution of the war, there are
two peace-time problems which will
require careful and continuous consideration.
The flrst of these is the problem
of unemployment. While It Is
doubtless true that this problem
will be less acute during the wartime period, those who thought
that in the advent of war the problem would be Immediately and automatically solved, were mistaken.
There has, it is true, been some
reduction. But even when Industry
has been keyed to tbe high tempo
produood by war activity, there
will still remain a substantial number who will depend from time to
time upon the State for their support.
The seoond of these Is the problem
of the aftermath of war. It la not
too early to be giving this our earnest
consideration and our most careful
thought. The situation which will he
created when our Foroes on the land,
the sea and in the air are required to
return to peace-time aotlvities, and
when the artificial stimulation of
Industrial activity created by the
scourge of war has been removed,
will be a most serious one.
But the extent of our post-war dislocation will be largely governed by
the forethought and careful planning
that is given to the meeting of this
inevitable occurrence—by the avoidance of industrial disputes, by steps
taken now to avoid undue Inflation,
by measures calculated to build up a
baok log against the emergency, by
the sense of confidence we can instil
into our Oanadlan people, by a vigorous and honest prosecution of the
war and by the extent to which we
oan succeed ln marshalling the vast
resources of Canada with a view to
banishing hardship, privation and
despair from every home.

Ryerson Press, Toronto, 1989—60o
"Fancy   Free,"   brilliant,    thought-

verse,   embodies   the   poetlo   philosophy of Carol Coates, U.B.C. graduate
of 1980,  who  reflects  that  'form   In

also by the environment of the poet.'
She  shows  realiatta Interpretation
of war embodying 'a vivi.nesa of effect and subtlety of appeal' . . .
"the sun glares down on bare bayonets

causes, as the poet Intends, the reader to reflect with more than customary   care  the   rhythmic   qualities   of
every  -word.
The above extraction from "The

The, end of life is Intimated in:
'Fifty-four   bluejackets
in neat white boxes
shipped   home   from   Shanghai
ready for burial.' . . .
Yet though intimately associated
with the war-strioken environment
Miss Coates adequately reveals a
subtle appreciation for the aesthetic
appeal of Japanese arts, poetry,
painting, and flower arrangements.
Her brilliant portrayal of these Oriental traditions gives her poema an
air—exotic and unfamiliar.

success ln their tilt with the Rowers,
Ohuck Long, senior manager, seems
very optimistic, despite the long layoff the lads have had during the
festive season. He la definitely looking for a victory this week, and then
hopes to swing the Victoria Invasion
deal so that the Thunderbirds will
meet the Crimson Tide on January
20, ln our fair capltol. No line-ups
have been arranged for any of the
games so far, but the boys have been
getting in some practice on the sly all

fettle for the melee.
The Engineers, also In the usual
audacious manner of sciencemen, are
counting on a victory, although one
has grave doubts when considering

more recent defeats inflicted by the
faculty on one or two of the members. However they may surprise us
and come through with a victory.

Vikings Victorious 41-35
As Varsity Folds
In Speedy Tilt
Cheated out of their annual jaunt to the American schools of
athletics, the Thunderbirds nevertheless were able to wheedle an
invitation from the Western Washington Vikings, Education
Centre at Bellingham, and, tooling south in student cars met the
powerful blue and white quintette, Wednesday night, collapsing
in the second half to lose out 41-35.
The classy Vikings, who took the Washington Huskies into
camp by four points the other week, were definitely off thejr game
according to local sports followers, but flashed a smooth passing
game in the second half, leaving the unconditioned Thunderbirds
in the wake.
Chief playmaker for   the   Vikings ■ ■
was  a  wiry little firebrand   named
Joe Moses, an alleged Assyrian, Who
whips the ball  around, feeding   his
rangy   forwards,   and   setting  them
up for easy points.
Also notable  In the  Americans'
offense,  and  something   that   the
Thunderbirda eould well afford to
emulate  was tho   way   In   whioh
they sunk their free shots.    Tho
Yanks      snagged     nine     valuable
pointa thla way, more than their
margin In Wedneaday night's tilt.
Flashy  Doug  Alexander   caught
the  eye of the  ReUlngham  audienoe,   whllo   genial   Joe   Prlngle's
clean,  hard  game  at  guard  waa
also applauded.
The  Birds  clamped   the  lid  down
on   the   Vikings   powerful   soorlng
combination in the flrst stansa with
their  sone  defense, something   that
the  Americans  were   not   used   to.
With   Flynn   and  Alexander   leading
the   U.B.C.   parade    and    Pettyjohn,
Dahl,   and   Moses   starring   for    the
Vlkea,   the   opening   half   produced,
talrly  acceptable  ball,   although  the
Canadian aquad  waa hindered  by a
lack of condition, accentuated by the
abaence of the quarter time reat.
Tired and weary after holding
the blue and gold to 18-14 at the
half, the Studenta blew up in accepted faahlon, falling easy prey to
the sharp passing attaok of their
Yankee rivals.
Led by Dahl and Pettyjohn the
Vikings jumped Into a ten point
lead, but were pushed back on tbelr
heels when Don Livingstone, who
Incidently got the finger from the
faoulty, got a range on tho hoop and
dropped In six quick points.
Superior aeasoning and a wealth
of reserve material, however, broke
the 'Birds' back as they dropped'
baok In the wake of some expert
marksmanship, ending up on the
short end of a 41-36 oount.

Boxers Plan
Another sport seems destined for
prominence on the oampus this
year, as the boxing olub blossoms
forth with the announcement that
a speolal ring will be built and placed ln the Stadium, tbe flrst move of
minor sports from the overcrowded
gym Into that building.
The boxing class in past years has
been badly handicapped, with only
the gym floor for workouts. The
problem Maury Van Vliet faced in
instructing aa many aa thirty leather
tossera without the neoeaaary 'aquar-
ed circle' waa certainly trying, but
Maury proudly announcea that work
on the new structure will start Immediately.
The boxing ring will be set up inside the Stadium, between the two
shower rooms. Although the room
haa only a dirt floor, a apeolal platform will be erected of a semi-permanent atructure, -with a proper canvas flooring. The ropes will be permanent fixtures specially made of
cable covered with rubber with turn-
buckles to adjust the strands.
Along with the much-needed ring
the olub haa acquired boxing protection head-gear, ao when Maury's
Maulers next go Into action, they
wUl no longer be seriously handicapped by a lack of training equipment.
Training    haa    always     been    the
main  problem  but  thla  term  should
prove what the college  sluggers oan

(advt.) we arrived finally at 7.46, and
were transported to the gym.
And incidentally, it's a honey of a
layout, being fully as large aa our
own barn, and equipped with all the
latest gadgets, including a super time
clock registering minutes and seconds, and slung up in plain view for
the players and crowd to aee. Also
notioed was their scoring outfit which
was an electrically lighted chunk of
machinery which was operated from
the time bench. Also noticed was
their co-eds (but that's another
story, Sylvia, honestlll).
Although the actual game was not
so sweet, lt was Interesting to watch.
The crowd seemed quite captivated
by Joe Prlngle's smiling puss, and
more than one person was heard to
comment on It.
And while we're on the subject
what a crowd It waa, Out of a total
enrollment at the oollege of nearly
a thousand, over 600 atudenta turned out, at two bits a head, to witness the encounter, complete wtth
band resplendent In blue and white
uniforms, whose colour was only
outdone by the enthusiasm and
energy of the members.
And coupled with their band, was
the amaslng faot that the students
didn't seem to be ashamed to yell
(as at certain''other colleges). Nay,
more, they were even encouraged to
exercise their larynxes, displaying
organised yells during every tune out.
What a change I
South of the Border, the melon
tossers play only two halves Instead
of four quarters, allowing more time
outs, and staging a burlesque game
between pyjama-clad students and
ten-year-old tots. The students incidentally didn't hesitate to give vent
to their true feeling at places ln this
farce, and hissed with gay abandon
when the mood seized them.
After the tilt, we were escorted to
a nearby Eatery, aurnamed Stan's
Stomach Station, from whence; after
wrapping ourselves around much vit-
tles, we were led to a large edifice
called Eden's Hall, which upon closer
scrutiny turned out to be a girl's
dorm. Here we were introduced to
this year's runner-up for Homecoming Queen (Jean Morgan, 608 West
14th—so my shirt cuff says) and who
wouldn't come home?
Tearing ourselves away, we dashed
over to the printing offices to have a
look-see around. And don't tell anyone,  but ours is much  bigger. How-
competitions with the Blue and Oold
mitt men, aa they fully realize the
atudenta would make a great 'drawing card.'
>7 double delight
Snjoif a bar dally
THE   BE^l   MILK   . H fl T fl I ATE   MADE:
ever, lt seems that the students who
are on the Pub. board get official
credits for their work as a Journalistic course, and also they make the
odd shekkel or two on the side, collecting ads, printing programs, etc.
After viewing their outfit, we Anally decided to head for home, and after dragging Garrett away from Eden
Hall and 668 West 14th, we did indeed set off, arriving home shortly
after quite late.
_ Incidentally, they refused to discuss American neutrality, so we re-
taUlated by drinking tea (for dinner).
