all or most of their fees during
the vacation. Average earnings
were 244 dollars.

the campus again !
Comrade Sandy, Nash,
master of ceremonies at Saturday's Mixer refuses to

"Why shouldn't we share and
share alike?' he says'. Incensed at
the unequal distribution of prizes.
'Tomorrow night I'll give everyone a prize. The peopl-e shall share
the wealth! It's wonderful I"
As now outlined, tha plan is to

realization that for the next
364 days of the year, the
men will once more be doing
the pursuing.
Most of them agree that the girls
really make fine escortesses. Pre-
dance dinner dates, chocolates,

with breath-taking profusion all

Questionnaire Produces
Some Startling Answers

the usual crop of dim wits who will insist on making
funny remarks in the blank spaces.
Canadian Student Assembly Executives, who compiled the results, state that Jack Benny is

some students as  gag writers.
"Some of those answers were
really funny," remarked Vernon

Foreign Relations
The Conference with Reed College being
held here next week is undoubtdly an important one, and should cause a great deal
of interest to studenta on this campus interested In history and economics. No similar conference has been held here for some
time, if ever. The delegation from Oregon is
a fairly large one, and includes two distinguished men, the president of the college
and a member of the faculty, professor of
political science.
The topics of the conference are some
of the most interesting and most discussed
of present day questions in Canada — the
effect of the war upon Canada, conditions in
the United States, and the relations between
the two countries. The R«fd College delegation has asked that Canadian members of
the Conference present their views on Canada and the war, and has offered to discuss
any American problems that Canadians
would be interested in hearing about.
On these days of rumours, opinions
based on hearsay, and conflicting reports,
students should take advantage of this opportunity of hearing many of the important
topics of the day discussed by intelligent
speakers under the direction of well-informed and thinking men.
• Pearl Castings
.  .  . by Lister Sinclair
The difficulties of writing a play are
not appreciated by the general public. When
one goes to the theatre to see a play, lt does
not usually occur to one that somebody has
had to write the wretched thing (Note to
budding authors: never start off sentences
with "one" in them; you are left grasping
the well-known burlap in less than no time.)
Ordinary plays contain a number of
characters. No one knows the struggle it
is to get the right number of characters in
a play. Either you can think of no reason
for having more than one person, and have
to drag in the rest of the people to fill up
the program without contributing to the
proceedings in any essential way, or else the
utmost pruning of which you are capable
leaves a cast of ninety.
Another difficult thing is the question
of scenes. Absurd modern prejudices demand that the scene be not changed more
than 20 or 30 times an hour. Our friend
Shakespeare (that is probably one of the •■
wrong ways of spelling it) got over this by
dispensing with scenery altogether, merely
shooting a citizen with a placard onto the
stage before each scene. The result is that
nowadays you have to anchor down the
bally play to a certain extent. This, I assure
you, entails tho sweating of buckets of
buckets of blood.
I am 1':.-mi tided of the app; 11 litis; difficulties involved in play writing by-the discovery of one of my juvenalia in a drawer.
Juvenalia means ''works of one's youth";
it i.s not "ood usuag'e to say "Look at that
Jo yoiny  around  without  his juvenalia."
To recur with distressing frequency to
the point in hand, I discovered, as I say, this
loathsome document, which purported to be
a dramatization of an O. Henry story. It
was partially nibbled by mice — not even
they could finish it.
I mused on it for a while; that getting
uncomfortable, I got up and moved to another chair.
How well I remember plugging away at
that confounded thing. In between speeches,
I used to sketch out designs for a Sinclair
Memorial Theatre. Sic transit gloria Saturday to Monday. At the end of it I read
over the Master Work, and swooned away.
It had no story. I don't mean it had
very   little  story.     It  had   NO   story.     The
plan, so ingeniously devised, and so assiduously pursued to its bitter conclusion had
failed utterly. I had discovered (so I
thought) a new method of literary adaptation, and one which I had hoped with pride
would revolutionize literature. I had carefully copied down every bit of dialogue as
it occurred, omitting nothing and adding
nothing. The result, as I have indicated,
■was unsuccessful, to say the least of it.
A somewhat superficial analysis of the
original story showed that the scene changed
frequently and radically as the story progressed and that all the dramatic action lay
in narrative. I had also omitted to take
cognizance of the fact that the crux of the
plot hinged on the destruction of the city
by earthquake, a stage affect of which the
average producer fights shy.
I therefore regard with the utmost admiration those geniuses who have succeeded
in churning out a play. I quite appreciate
Shapespeare's angle in pinching all his plots
from other people. I understand perfectly
that it is impossible both to devise the plot
and  write the play.
However, "the attitude of the public can
be excused for the thing that makes the
entertainment to a very great extent is the
acting. We now come to the point of lliis
trifle, which is lo remonstrate (somewhat
belatedly) with "J. G." for the cxlrnorciin-
ai-y attitude which he took up toward Ihe
The Lunts are reputed to be two of the
very finest actors in the world; but that this
reputation does not merely rest upon their
past achievements was clearly shown when
they came to Vancouver with "There Shall
Be No Night." Instead of seeing in that
performance some of the best acting that
this city has ever seen or ever could see,
"J. G." quibbled childishly over minor political details.
I admit that the play itself was not quite
as good as it should have been, but it was
a very good play, even if Mr. Sherwood's
attitude toward the Finnish War does not
coincide with "J. G.'s."
"J. G." should remember Dr. Sedge-
wick's maxim about "going into the theatre
like an innocent child." I am afraid that
is a misquotation, and that I am "spoiling
Dr. Sedgewick's beautiful cadences," but
the idea is there.
Th* moat Important item of
business at the Council meeting Monday night wa* the recommendation to the Stadium and
Oymnaalum Committee that thc
Student Council be allowed to
make what uae of the Stadium
fi-eld it consider* best. It was folt
that inasmuch a* the students
were the ones who had organized
the campaign that secured the
building of the stadium, students
should have some measure of control over the us. of the field. The
Stadium and Oyinn^sluir Committee consists of two student representatives and a majority of faculty  representatives.
There is a hint that if the request ls refused, Council will go
farther. Council, lt was agreed,

the  waitresses.
"Th.y don't seem to realize tbat

haired one, who shall be called
Sadie. "Look at that couple,"
pointing to two heads close together in the corner, "they have

Sadie softened a little, however,
when we pointed out that there
was no sign telling the closing
hour. "Yes, you are quit, right,
but they might know! Honestly,
they either are dumb or just don't

Alao Included In offenders were
those who lean against' the tray

waitresses from setting down the
empty trays, which, by the way,
the students are supposed to return themselves.. "Don't think
I'm complaining too much," smiled
Sadie, brightening as her work
came to an end, "because most of

Rural Training Students
Put Knowledge To Use
4)    According    to     Manne       ■■■■■■■■■■■■■■-b«--_______________
Salle and Magnus Houg-
en of the rural leaders, the
training the up-country students are getting here is a
very fine thing.
Already they have been able to
put some of their knowledge to
good use. Carpentering and black-
smithing are especlaUy useful to
the boys, and first aid, cooking
and home nursing are valuable to
the  girls.
These students come from all
over the province. They must first
attend a two-weeks school In their
own district, at which they learn
much the same things that they
learn here, but on a smaller scale.
From these district schools, two to
four of the best studenta aro
chomen by a local committee to
come to U.B.C.
Manne Salle who la mayor of
the rural leaders, comes from
Chinook Cove (about 45 miles
north of Kamloops) where he Uvea
on a small farm with hi* parents.
He went to a district school for
two week* at Louis Creek before
coming to Vancouver. To give an
idea of how thinly populated the
district 1*, Manne told the Ubyssey
that the nearest doctor la fifty
mUes from hla farm, and pointed
out how valuable the home nursing and first aid classes are to
th* girl*,
Magnus Hougen come* from
Burns Lake, at the entrance to
Tweedsmulr Park. He went to the
shorter school  at Southbank.
Both Manne and Magnus have
found carpentering and black-
smithing the most useful so far.
They haw passed on some of their
knowledge to their families and
neighbors, and expect to be able
to help them more when they return home.
The students at the U.B.C. camp
find Uttle spare time. They are
allowed the week-ends off if they
have someone to stay with in
Vancouver, otherwise they can go
out on Saturday afternoons. No
nights off are  allowed.
Some of the students have been
in organized parties to see tho
Canada Packers, the Art Gallery,
some of the bakeries and the Sea
Island farms.
The  camp breaks up March  IS.

# The Library is a busy
place these days. Long
lines of students harass the
librarians for material to be
used in the bi-annual curse,
term essays.
"Seven weeks to exams, they all
shall not pass," is the battle cry on
the lips of every professor. "Seven
weeks; Good Lord, my terms essays I" cry hundreds of anguished
students. •
Timidly I approached the librarian. "Have you any material on

Term esay you know," I said hopefully.
'I know," she answesed sadly,
"oh,  how I know."
"I wouldn't want much" I ventured.
She laughed nastily. "Wait," she
said and disappeared into the

later she re-appeared laden with
about ten large Imposing volume*.
"Ia that all?" I gulped.
"For you it'* probably too much"
she cracked.
"Oh yeah I" I oame right back.

Third  Floor Scott Scores 21 As Birds Down Angels
Barton's Free Throws
Cinch Series Opener
The Score: Varsity 48; Angelus 46
Second Playoff Came Saturday 9.00 p.m. V.A.C* Gym
# THB OLD COLLEGE SPIRIT which has carried Varsity cage teams to championships
in the past blazed brilliantly again in the campus gym Wednesday night as the 1941 Thunderbird machine rolled into a one-game lead over the dangerous Angelus outfit for the
championship of the hottest Senior "A" basketball league in Canada.
Every one of the students who wore the Blue and Gold played like a veteran, but the
two heroes of the 48—45 victory were Jimmy Scott, whose phenomenal shooting garnered
him twenty-one points, and Art Barton, whose coolness during the last torrid minutes of
the contest brought three free-shot points which beat the Angel rally and sent the crowd
of over 900 home happy.

The Pause That Refreshes
Angelus Rally Falls Short
It was a typical Varsity-Angelus battle. The 'Birds went
into the final quarter with a fairly comfortable 38—31 lead,
but the bruising hotelmen started their rushing, pushing,
shooting-from-every-angle tactics, caught the students and
passed them when Arnle Bumstead banged in a rebound to
make it 48—44.
Then the over-enthusiastic Angels proceeded to throw
away their own game, as Bumstead and McLachlan fouled
blond "Lefty" and Art swished his gift shots through the
hoop as if he and his mates were practising Instead ox playing for keeps. Wally Johnston sewed the thing up tight
with his free throw (and only shot of the night) after Bumstead lost his head, and tackled him as If the game were Canadian football.
The game left the large crowd gasping and set the stage
for a bang-up series. Saturday night at V.A.C. the Angelus
boys are confident they will square the count at one game
apiece when they entertain the students at 9:00 p.m.
Students Stari Shakily
Coley Hall's men displayed their greater experience in
the first quarter as lithe Billy McLachlan led them to a
13—8 lead at the breather. Varsity's ball-handling and shooting were bad in this period, the boys apparently being nervous. However, they were confronted with the "unconscious" shooting of McLachlan, who got ten points and Just
couldn't miss from anywhere.
Jim Scott got into high gear in the second, being especially good on nee throws. The tall scienceman sank seven
of hla high loopers from the foul line without a miss. The
crowd came to their feet when the 'Birds caught the Angels
four mlnutea from half-time as Jack Ryan's floor-length dash
brought the score to 18—all.
The third period was the student's best session and the
one which proved Varsity's life-saver. In this quarter they
outscored the hotelmen 17 to 8, Barton and Scott doing most
of the potting.
Second Clash Saturday
Pat Flynn played his usual grand game, being the hardest
worker on the floor. Jack Ryan stood out, too, scoring seven
points from his guard position.
After the way the students pulled the game out of the
fire Wednesday, the experts are picking them to take the
aeries. They'll have a tough Job getting by Angelus Saturday,
but we're going to climb on the bandwagon with all the other
Sports editors who are flocking back to their "Alma Mammy"
and pick Varsity to win.
Then there won't be any trick at all to finishing off the
series next Wednesday out here at the campus, will there?

VARSITY: Matheeon, Barton 13, Johnston 1, Scott 21,
