Student Asked
To Leave
Union College, theological school
of the United Church of Canada
and home of some 60 resident students of the university, appears to
be the scene of unrest, with •
deadlock between the head of the
institution, Dr. J. G. Brown, and
the residents over a situation that
has arisen during the last few days.
It is reported that one night this
week at 12.80 three students called
on a fourth student in his room. It
is said that they all had a pleasant
chat, talking in subdued tones in
order not to create an undue disturbance in the building at that
time of night.
On the next day, or rather later
the same day, it is alleged that the
occupant of the room in question
was summoned to the offlce of the
principal to be requested to find a
new home, and to leave the college.
The report has it that this order waa later withdrawn, and the
atudent  permitted   to  return to
the  college, aa a reault of the
appeal made on the part of the
offender by  hla  fellow-students,
who were with him at the time
of the "Incident."
According to what students say,
however,  the  affair did not  close
unprotested,  for  a   mass   meeting
was called of  all the  residents  of
the college.  The college consists of
some 60 students and faculty members, the majority of whom have no
connection with the theological side
of the institution.
At this meeting, apparently, a
delegation was elected to call upon
Dr. Brown, and a resolution passed:
"That this meeting recommends as
a possible solution for any question
of differences which may arise:
(1) The constitution of a committee of the residents;
(2) The drafting of more adequate rules with a view to
determining the personal liberties of residents."
It is rumored that the conference
between Dr. Brown and the delegation, which was to consist of two
theological students, two resident
members of the faculty, and two
other residents of the college, did
not take place. Dr. Brown, it is
stated, postponed one and broke the
other of two appointments with the
As a result of this reported deadlock between the principal and the
residents a second mass meeting of
the residents was called, the outcome of which was that the delegation was instructed to continue
its efforts to see Dr. Brown.
To date no further action has
been taken by the principal, students at the college declare.
When Interviewed by the Ubyssey, Dr. Brown stated, "Nothing
at  all   has   happened   here.   The
whole affair is too silly to talk
One    of    the    leading    residents
when  questioned  last  night,  said:
"There is undoubtedly a misunderstanding here between the residents
and   the   authorities.    I   hope   that
the  situation  can  be  solved,  but  I
do not know what the solution will

raised their voices in protest
Tuesday evening at Studenta'
Counoil In conneotlon with the
faot that the student body haa
not ■ufflclent representation on

Vine noted that, although atudenta have ralaed a good proportion of the money on hand for
the building, they have only one

the taah.
U. B. C. AT
Have you ever been ln the Science Building? A ridiculous question, you may aay, but it is probable that many students have never
been past the third floor.
And, until you have seen the second, third, and fourth floors ot our
local beehive of Industry, until you
have peered into smoke-filled labs
and gazed in naive astonishment
at walls latticed with gleaming
glass tubes, until you have dodged
brown • coated figures carrying
smoking beakers of concentrated
acid, you have not seen the Science
It you are one of those shy, backward Individuals who dare not take
such a trip alone, Open House is
your opportunity. On February 6th
you may join throngs of people
who, like yourself, will stand ln
open-mouthed wonder as color and
startling experiments are performed before your very eyes.
If you mra still skeptleal, watch
two liquids poured into a teat-
tube, express dismay as ths eon-
tente are spilled on the floor, and
gasp aa the material — now a
'plastic'—comes bouncing toward
you like mn India-rubber ball.
Vour prejudices toward Selenee-
men will ba completely dispelled.
J. R. Mitchell, 1936-37 president
of the Canadian Teachers' Federation, gave an address on national
educational problems to the members of the U.B.C. branch of the
B.C.T.F. at noon, Tuesday.
"Seholara coming to B. C. from
other provineas are veritable foreigners," ha stated. "Some clover
relationship between provincial

"Another urgent need of this
country ls a minimum educational

the last few years many schools
have been suspended tor financial
reasons, especially in the Prairie
Mr. Mitchell deplored the tact
that the press often ignores the
real progress being made in education yet makes sensational headlines of mlscontrued minor details.
"We paid a reporter twenty-five
dollars to sit in on our conference
at Ottawa this summer and got ten
lines in the city papers," he exclaimed, "yet the comparison of
salaries ln Saskatchewan and B.C.

such a manner that people were
astounded at the extravagant wages

and keep up with the progress being made in education, provlnclally,
nationally and internationally.
Profs, to Accompany
Travelling U. Teams
From now on. U.B.C. athletic
teams wiN travel only when accompanied by a representative
appointed by faculty, council decided  Tuesday evening.
Advocates of the new ruling
pointed out that most other universities have had such a scheme
tor years, and that IT.B.C. was
behind the times in this respect.
Cost of the touring professors'
trips will have to be bori.e by the
tiniversity authorities.
Revision of the set-up of the Discipline Committee came before
Students' Council Tuesday night
for consideration. Decision on the
matter will be made Monday evening.
Suggested as members of the revamped D. C. were:
President of M.U.S.
President of W.U.S.
Prasldsnt of Arts  Msn.
President ef S.M.U.S.
Prssldant of Agglea.
The new cornmittee would be
four-fifths male—a move suggested
by present D. C. chairman John
Bird because of the fact that the
great majority ot the students called before the committee are men.
Because of this, states Bird, the
committee should be composed
chiefly ot men. The new set-up
would be smaller than the present
committee, and would be easier to

"Spring Session of the Vancouver

Saturday evening. The meeting
will be held ln Room 100 in the
Arts Building. Speaker will be
Senator J. W. deB. FarrU, and the

The sun shone fair on high old Grouse's peak,
And ere old Sol had climbed beyond the ridge
Of Hollyburn, the good ship Norah loosed
Her sails, and pointed west her figured prow.
Past Prospect's throne and grim grey Siwash
Soon slipped the silver swan-like sea Princess.
'Twas on the flrst hot hour past lazy noon
They came unto a land, in which it seemed
To always be the time to bury dead.
"What kingdom sleeps beneath our eyes, O Cap?"
Cried warrior Careychles.    At once the ship,
With springing keel, rolled shoreward on a wave,
And sat her down near Belleville's wall of stone.
With cries of war and shouts to Gods above,
Invading hordes, of martial 'ray supreme,
Rushed clam'ring to the peaceful land of Tweeds.
Anon, they came with throaty might, at once
To test the worth of men Victoria placed
On royal arena's floor to flght for cup
That Norah's men were bound by Gods to 'fend.
With shuddering crash the flashing heroes met
In frightful bloody battle, till the team
Of natives of the place lay dead beneath
The sweating feet of Zeus' great Thunderbirds.
But now, with joy alive within their hearts,
Brave hosts returned aboard the gallant craft,
And sailed off in the night, to drink the health
Of Gods who came to aid their favoured ones
In combat with the foe from 'Victor's' coast.
The sun shone fair on high old Grouse's peak,
And ere old Sol had climbed beyond the ridge
Of Hollyburn, the good ship Norah lay
Asleep beside her moorings, sure and true,
War spoils her freight, and captives for her crew.

Pinned down last night by a
Ubyssey reporter, PhU Griffin, president of Arts '39, admitted that the
forthcoming Junior Prom is not a
Junior Prom at all, but merely a
class party. It seems that the senior class are guests at a bona fide
Promenade, which idea does not
appeal  to  the  Arts  '39  committee.
"Seniors will be only too welcome, in very limited quantities,
however," said Griffin, "at the nominal rate of $1.60 per person, and
all will be expected to dance with
the Prom Queen. Cut-ins are permissible for the whole evening as
far as she Is concerned."
Since the total attendance must
be restricted, members of the Junior class are advised that they
must make dates and buy tickets
by next week at the latest in order
to keep the outside attendance at
a minimum,  according  to  Griffin.

A proposal by John Bird that
freshman insignia be abolished
next year, met with heavy opposition from Students' Council members Tuesday evening.
Bird, chairman of a committee
Btudylng the freshman initiation
problem, asked for an opinion from
his council colleagues.
Jean Meredith labelled the proposal  "a mistake."
"Frosh will ask tor it," she commented.
Malcolm Brown noted that In
other Canadian universities where
initiation ef all sort has been
banned, there Is a growing attempt to revive the former fresh
free-for-alls In seme modified
"Our scheme has worked out
well with the women," W.U.S. prealdent Peggy Fox declared.
Brown stated that frosh insignia
was "one of the few traditions we
have left."
"Let's hold onto our traditions,"
he said.
Lyall Vine eald that the frosh
should   be   allowed   to   blow   off
steam  under control.
This would be a protection to the
university, he said, because as long
as unauthorised Initiation rites continued,  there  will  be  a  danger  of
serious  accidents.
Dave Caray pointed out that
tha Board of Governors' ruling
againat Initiation of any sort is
Irrevocable, but that there waa
no harm In trying to got aome
modification of tha judgment.

Random Ramblings
Members of the Publications Board extend their sincere
sympathies to the editor of the Ubyssey, Kemp Edmonds, on
the death of his mother, Mrs. H. L. Edmonds, Wednesday.
A Victoria Invasion will be staged next Saturday—providing that 860 students buy 92.60 tickets for the affair by
tomorrow. The price is low, considering the extent of the
entertainment to be offered, and students will incur few
added expenses, unless it is their wish to do so.
Support ot the Invasion will make the trip the outstanding event of the term. It is up to U.B.C. students to show
residents of the provincial capital that the student body can
put forth united effort to a good end.
When plans for the forthcoming Open House Day were
first announced it was stressed that the co-operation of members of the Arts faculty had been assured, in order to make
the event this year more representative of the university as
a whole. Early next month Open House will be held, and to
date we have heard none of the plans for other than Science
contributions to the affair.
If various organizations of Arts students hope to participate in Open House, it is essential that they complete their
preparations at once. Nothing is worse than a poorly-prepared program. Such an unfortunate happening would place
the university in a bad light with the public.
In view of the situation in which the university has
found itself this year, success of Open House Day is a necessity. Those in charge of the event must see to it that the
visitors to the campus see the students at their best. If Arts
groups are to take part, they must push forward their plans
and ensure that their contribution is of the highest atandard.

"DEI mir bist du schoene" was
such a refreshing ballad on

by the "Ubyssey" what had taken
place at the conference the delegates all seemed very vague on
every point except that they had
had a lovely time, and there were
a lot of French-Canadians there
who sympathised with General
Franco, but who were nice young
men anyhow.
So we said as much in the Ubyssey," at which the delegates suddenly remembered everything that
had happened at Winnipeg, and
determined to hold a purge to rid
the campus of all fascists and yel

aplomb ot a Japanese agent smuggling polecata across the Russo-

chilled our blood again so badly
that the dill pickle fell from our
trembling fingers with a plop Into
our coffee.

thla ls not to be condemned ln Itself, for the field of technical agriculture ls not yet burdened with a
surplus ot trained men; nevertheless, at least half the students In
agriculture at present are only nebulously, If at all, conversant with
the peculiar conditions ot soil and
climate existing in this province.
These students are taking lectures and doing laboratory exercises in the practical and theoretical aspects of crop and farm animal management, without the
slightest previous knowledge ot actual conditions on British Columbia
farms today. It Is clearly a relative
impossibility for a student educated (we assume) in city high-schools
to appreciate the meaning and purpose ot his university courses in
agriculture unless he has had some
opportunity of observing farm practices actually being carried on by a
farmer on a farm.
We readily concede that he may
find his studies interesting in a detached, academic way. This ls generally assumed by him to be sufficient Justification for the courses
existing at all tn the flrst place.
He may think that if he is going to
sell fertilisers for a living after
he graduates he will require no
further knowledge of scientific animal feeding than Is found in a text
book: but he must approach his
prospective customer on that customer's own particular level, as he
will some day come to realise. This
ls but one isolated Illustration, but
the same principles apply, no matter what field the agricultural graduate enters.
The situation is indeed unfortunate, but the courses offered here
cannot be condemned as inadequate or unsatisfactory, for they

between the U.S.C. and U.B.C. in
Hollywood that nite—which they
lost incidentally 7-6. Well, the next
morning's paper, with a very abbreviated account of the game,
mentioned five players as scorers
for B.C., and as the sixth they
named Hugh Shirreff. Sherrlff, in
case you haven't already heard, is
the super-man between the B.C.

Students' Council  has a problem.
What to do with the Junior Member?
The Junior Member's position,
now being held down by John
Brynyelsen, is considered the sinecure of council. All he has to do is
watch over room reservations for
meetings, and keep clubs from
fighting over Arts 100 at noon
Then, every week at council session, the Junior Member has his
big moment, when the following
scene takes place:
Carey:   Any business, John?
Brynelsen:   Move the rooms and
Carey:   Anything else?
Brynelsen:   No.
Now, there's no reason why some
of the other overworked "tin gods"
shouldn't be relieved a bit—and the
duties handed over to the traditionally modest Junior Member.
If that Isn't done, then council
should reduoe its membership to

** The Student Prince and I have
a kick to register against the men
of Hollywood. Usually very tolerant about these things, we've
watched a good many pictures that
neared the awful without raising
our voices—but now . . .
About a year ago, thoae of us at
a Kerrisdale preview watched a
clever little lass from France steal
a picture from two capable players
—Herbert Marshall and Ruth Chatterton. We saw Simons Simon take
the honors in "Girls' Dormitory."
Last week we went to see "Love
and Hissea" becauae Misa Simon
waa in tt. While we got a pleasant
surprise when we heard her unusual singing voice in several delightful numbers—we were shocked to
aee what a year had done.
Miss Simon is no longer the natural, unsophisticated creature that
made ua cheer for her laat year.
Instead, she haa been re-made into
the typical Hollywood model, perhaps pleasing enough, but far from
natural. In one sequence Miss Simon resembled Alice Faye; in another, Carole Lombard. In all, she
wears clothes and make-up that
tend to make her conform to type,
killing her own personality.
It may have no place in a university paper, this discussion, but
the Prince and I object again. We
want our Simone back.
Our stooge 'way over In London telle ua that the first picturisa-
tion of a Ollbert and Sullivan piece
Is now being undertaken. He wirea
us that the first operetta to be
filmed will be, oddly enough, "Yeomen of the Guard," the one being
done by our own Musioal Society.
"Yoemen" will be filmed, adda
our London man, as an experiment.
The producers choose the piece because it waa one of the moat popular O. and S. efforts—and thetr
ehoice should reflect credit on our
own musicians. Perhaps the film
will play here soon after the vara-
Ity production, and we'll have a
real chance of appraising the student show.

Ib the belief held by the Hon. Norman McLeod Rogers, federal minister of labor.
Mr. Rogers, here to deliver his

the recent National Student Conference with the Canadian University Press, stated that ln his opinion the conference had served a
useful purpose and had fulfilled its
most reasonable objectives.
Referring to the resolution passed by the conferenoe supporting
the right of labor to bargain collectively and freely, Mr. Rogers
said that it was quite lawful under
the democratic theory of freedom
of association but it was a matter
tor the provincial governments,
some of which had not seen fit to
pass legislation granting such freedom. Mr. Rogers mentioned Nova
Scotia aa one of the leaders in the
field of trade union freedom.

basket by Lucas boomed the 'Birds

their flrst trip out of town on Saturday,  when  they  journey  to   Abbotsford  to  take   on  the   pride  of

than last week when they had to

the students will be strong favorites to bring home the bacon.

"Has the game of Cricket a

sporting the Blue and Oold enter a

The word "cricket," to the majority of University students, calls

players ln town during the Bummer months to make sure of a com
plete team every week and secondly they object on the grounds that
this University has never been represented ln summer sports before
and  therefore shouldn't now.

And secondly, Just because U.B.
C. has never officially played a summer sport before, is there any reason   why   lt  shouldn't   start  now?
With Ian Bisenhardt's Pro-Rec
Department lending its co-operation and encouragement to the
movement to Introduce the "Grand
Old Oame" into the schools, there
is bound to be an influx of cricket
talent hitting the campus before
long. To our way of thinking there
ls no reason why U.B.C. shouldn't
corrall this material and band it
into   a  club   which   will   Bhow   the
University's versatility by excelling
In a summer pastime.

After recovering from the California sunburn and the effect of
the Christmas exams, the lads of
the flashing blades are rarin' to
rip through any local opposition
and the flrst battle gets under way
.tonight against an All-Star junior
A rousing practise last night left
the Blue and Oold ice-choppers in
fine fettle for the all-important
game. If the students can mow
down the Juniors it ls possible that
a crack at the senior league will
be given the overlooked book-
However, all ia net cheerful In
the Varaity camp. In fact the defence situation Is paat being carious and, with Jim Harmer among

some of the forwards will havs to
be dropped baok to the defending
But with a little zip and some of

This All-star lineup Includes several star seniors ln the local loop.
Delmonico in goal, ls a star in any
man's league, and with defenceman
Dickinson and forward Ab Norman,
these stars will take plenty of stopping.
If all arrangements eome out,
the aquad will Journey down to
Seattle, over to Spokane and perhaps even up te Trail on a hockey tour that will give them lots
