Council Members Must
Not Take Sides—Bird
Students' Council members may
take no part In elections, it was
ruled Monday evening, after heated
discussion arising out of a motion
by John Bird.
"It's a shame that we should have
to put a motion through like that,"
commented Lyall Vine as Bird proposed that council members be forbidden to give any public or active
support to A.M.S. candidates.
The question arose out of the fact
that two council members signed a

Carson McGuire Heads Poll For
President In Tuesday Election:
Five Candida tes A re Ineligible
ELIGIBILITY committee moved
Thursday noon to exclude five
candidates from participating in
A.M.S. elections Tueday. Action
of the committee brought about
an acclamation in Women's Athletics, with Peggy MacLeod declared elected.
Taken out of the contest were:
Frank Turner and Harvey Carruthers, M.A.A.; Pamela Ttunkle,
W.A.A.; Norman DePoe, L.S.E!.;
and Rod Renshaw, Junior Member.
Remaining are some 23 candidates,  contesting  seven   offices.
Indication that outlawed candidates might fight the rulings
were seen Thursday, as some objected tbat they had been ruled
eligible to participate ln sports
the past few months, but could
not run for office.

Noted was the tact that there
were 26 spoiled ballots, caused by
students not understanding the
preferential voting system.
Many ballots were merely marked with an "X." In some cases
only flrst choice was named. Although these votes were allowed,
preferential voting ls preferred
by the election committee. The
votes with the "X" were counted
as  spoiled.

Thanks to the outstanding directing ot
Miss Dorothy Somerset, the stage-designing

Players' Club committees and the cast, it is
certain that the "Playboy of the Western

Theft From Arts
Common Room; Petty
Thievery Continues
A new tennis racquet, shoes and
three balls were stolen early Wednesday afternoon from a locker in
the Artsmen's common room, while
their owner was attending a chemistry lab.
This is the latest of a series of
thefts which have been taking place
during- the past few months. Other
cases of petty thieving have been
occurring on the campus.

Bird Would Have
Council Spend $100
On Ink For Library
Perhaps, suggested John Bird
at council Monday night, the
Alma Mater Society should do
something about the lack ot ink
in  the Library.
Taking his life in his hands,
election-weary Bird ventured to
suggest an expenditure of $100 a
term for this purpose.
Council didn't take to the proposal any too kindly, although
Peggy Fox who once before
brought forth a similar scheme
supported  Bird.
Free Coca-Cola in the caf would
be much more to the point, was
the view  of  President Carey.
New System Will
Be Brought In
At Once
No U.B.C. sophomore
will be able to say that
she is being rushed off her
felt next fall. For the eight
women's fraternities on
the campus have abolished
rushing*. A new system
much more democratic in
nature was adopted by the
Panhellenic Association
Monday noon by which
sophomores will apply for
membership and the sorority may contact their
possible members only
through campus activities.
For many years the
Panhellenic groups on all
the campus* in America
have been unsatisfied with
the rushing rules and modified them in numerous
ways but this is the first
time that sororities have
so disregarded the tradition of almost a century
and abolished rushing altogether.
The plan, which was developed around a suggestion
made by Clare Brown, was
passed by seven out of the
eight women's Greek letter
societies. The new system
is expected to have numerous
advantages, the most important of which are financial.
The advantages of no rushing, as seen by the delegates
to a house party held last
week for the purpose of discussing the possible change, were
that it will intensify the interest of the sorority girls in
campus activity. These activities are the sole means
whereby the Greek women
may meet their prospective
sorority sisters.
Of most advantage to the
groups themselves is that the
system of registration will enable them to pick from the
largest possible group of
members as well as the limiting of bidding to those students truly interested in receiving bids by means of the
one dollar registration fee.
The new system will put more
of the responsibility for the contacting of the groups on the shoulders ot the freshettes. Then too,
the freshettes will have the advantage, as they will know what groups
are interested in them and will not
pin their hopes on ono group, which
may not bid them.
The contact period is spread
over a longer period and therefore the acquaintanceships between the sororities and their new
members is not so artificial as
under the old system. It Is
thought that the faculty will approve of the new system.
1. Rushing is completely abandoned on this campus.
2. The President of the Panhellenic will speak at the first meeting
o fthe Women's Undergraduate Society and a sorority booth will be
set up at the Senior Freshette tea.
3. A circular of general information regarding the nature and function of the sororities be sent to
each freshette In January The circular will contain:    (1)  pictures of

Agitation Revived
Campaign Is
The battle of the B.Sc. degree is
on again!
Students taking pure sciences are
once more agitating for a degree
to distinguish them from the common horde of arts students. For
years the "pure sciencemen" have
sought unsuccessfully to have a
separate degree which would more
exactly describe the work they have
taken at U. B. C, but this year aTe
determined to see the thing through
to a successful completion.
Students interested in the movement met last Tuesday in Sc. 300
when a plan of campaign was discussed and a committee appointed.
Tentative plans provide for a petition to be circulated among science-
men. The committee will also seek
to get faculty opinion solidly behind them in the expectation that
a recommendation by the faculty
would be accepted by the authorities.
In former years it has been urged
that a separate faculty be established for the pure sciences, but it
is felt that this plan can wait until
the science degree itself is inaugurated. There will be no agitation
for the separate faculty this year.
It is argued that a science degree
should be giyen by the faculty of
arts and science just as it now gives
a commerce degree. Sciencemen feel
that such a degree would be of
more value in securing positions in
Another meeting will be held
next Tuesday in Sc. 300 at 12.16.

Oxzie Durkins' Plan
Functioning Well —
Receiving Recognition
Under the guiding hand of Ozzy
Durkin, a second musical Innovation for thia year has been started
on the campus. Lately he decided
to convert this into a College band
under the possible direction ot Bob
At the time when Ozzy organized his orchestra he also formed
a Olee Club. In the beginning this
organization was something of a
"Mixed Choir," but it later grew
into a Male Glee Club consisting of
three quartets. Then on Durkin's
invitation Harry Watts and his Anglican College Choir came over to
sing with the Glee Club.
The two bodies are working together at present under the direction of Professor Ira Dilworth. Mr.
Dilworth is well known as the
leader of the Bach Choir and the
University Choir is fortunate in
having his assistance.
Their programme is to include
the best to be had in choral music.
From all indications at recent Pep-
meets this plan should meet with
the approval of the student body.
However, the best in choral music
doesn't necessarily exclude all modern compositions.
It Is hoped that the choir will
one  day   bo  on  a  par  with   the
Musical Society and the Players'
Club.  At present It affords vocal
training for student singers. Between 25 and SO students are now
taking an active part in the organization.
Although they have no constitution as yet, they plan to make possible    student    directorship    under
faculty supervision.
At present they are preparing to
take part in a Trans-Canada radio
programme to be released shortly
to which every Canadian University
will contribute.

Terry,   Jean   Hersholt,   Alan   Hale,
and the Four Horsemen themselves

of  the   best    British    documentary
films, "For All Eeternity," a magnificent photographic  study of the
English   cathedrals,   and   "Chapter

the development of printing, bookbinding, reading, and intelligence.
The performance begins at 8,15
in   the   University    Theatre,    or

amount of eclat attached to this
final performance.
"Four Horsemen" was produced
in 1021 by Rex Ingram, from the
famous wartime novel by Ibanez . It
brought the Great Latin his flrst
great starring role, and introduced
to the American public that peculiarly fatal appeal whose duplication
In another actor has been impossible
A constant search has been going
on over the last decade for a successor to Valentino, but no one actor has yet been found who combined the looks, glamour, grace,
ability, and dexterity of the Italian.
George Raft represents, in a limited
fashion, the smoothness and grace;
but obviously the versatility and
handsome features are lacking.
Valentino came over in 1913, at
18 years of age. He danced professionally for some years, and
made his flrst picture with Mae
Murray. His most outstanding pictures were: "The Shiek," "Monsieur
Beaucaire," and "Four Horsemen."
The story is set in Argentina and
Flanders. Rex Ingram's direction,
well.in advance of general trends in
1020, is characterized by beauty
and effectiveness of photography.
One famous scene here is the tango
In the South American cafe, which
illustrates Valentino's excellence as
a dancer.
There will be musical accompaniment from Carnegie recordings.
Tea in tall glasses will be served
at the Dolphin after the plays every
evening. Before the production,

One of Vancouver's prominent

With its Constitution passed by
the Students' Council the youngest
society on the campus, the Law Society, held its elections last Friday,
and laid plans for future activity.
Bernard Reed was elected President, and Treasurer Bob Smith,
vice-president, while Don McTag1-
gart was chosen for the Secretary's
position. The post of Educational
Director for the Club was filled by
Darell Braldwood.
The most important outcome of
tht meeting was the decision that

It is hoped that through the
speeches of the Panhellenic president and other methods that the
university girls be made conscious
of the presence of sororities on the
campus while they are still in their
flrst year.
The circular of information issued In the spring term will provide added  information  and  the
freshettes   who   have   begun   to
meet sorority girls through their
activities will be able to make a
tentative decision as to whether
they would be Interested in joining one of the group*.

the expense of the old elaborate
system of obtaining new members.
A second opportunity for applying for membership is given to the
sophomores and new upperclassmen
in the fall. Any student, even
though she may not have attended
any of the functions of the previous term, may now register for
membership. A $1 fee will be
charged to ensure that all those
girls applying are sufficiently interested to accept a bid should they
receive one.
An elastic system of adjustment through the offlce of the
Dean of Women will ensure that
almost every applicant will be
placed in the sorority where they
will be most congenial. Any applicant whose preferences do not

McGiil   UNIVERSITY.  MONTREAL,  CANADA Friday, March 11, 1938
• <E>(
Permit me to give you one or two
reasons for my acceptance of my
nomination for the position of secretary to the Alma Mater Society.
I have had a considerable amount
of executive and administrative
experience, and should do my best
to carry out my duties on the Students Council with the maximum of
efficiency. If other outside activities are required I submit my athletic interests on the campus.
Although a secretary is not a
vastly influential post on the Council, the position carries a vote in
all decisions. I shall endeavor to
use my vote in the best interests
ot the students.
I favor complete support ot the
present Publicity Campaign Policy,
erection of the Union Building, and
the continuance of the Pass System, if possible with slight modifications to more evenly distribute
the benefits over social and athletic
funtclons. I also heartily endorse
any plan that may avert the limitation ot registration and the Increase in fees proposed by the
Board of Governors.
An understanding of university
affairs and some acquaintance with
secretarial routine are the prlnci-
t pal requirements of the Secretary
ot the Alma Mater Society. I do
not feel that a clearly defined platform for this position ls necessary,
yet lt is Imperative that a Student
Councillor vote with Judgment and
understanding on matters of policy.
I have been enrolled ln two faculties in the three years I have
been here, have some knowledge
of the requirements ot the students,
and have had a wide experience ln
business and administrative affairs.
Frankly, I won't startle the campus
world If you elect me as your secretary, but I will discharge my duties
with what 1 hope are efficiency and
The essence of the Students'
Council ls not merely co-operation
but co-action. It ls well to agree,
but must we stagnate while doing
so? Vigour and energy must be
expended ln the welding together
of  constructive   Ideas.
Diplmoacy must be utilized to
further these ideas in the Interest
of the University. A coherent platform cannot be given in the allotted
space, so Monday noon it will be
advanced, embracing the support
of the political club and other current problems.
The most important phase of our
student government is the efficient
and earoful handling of our money.
I should like to effect a new
method of allotting .money to organizational activities. Many worthy groups on campus are being
made to suffer because of lack of

activities in order to Interest all
types of students.
The tasks confronting Council ln

As candidate for Treasurer, I
would present the following platform :
1. Even distribution of pass funds
to promote social, athletic and cultural activities.
2. Major activities attended by
the public' should be fully financed
and advertised to make self-supporting their activities and our
present set-up so as to give more
scope   to   minor   student  activities.
3. Formation of Men's and Women's Athletic Councils as suggested by the president-elect to reorganize athletics and place them on
the basts above suggested.
4. Budgeting toward completion
of stadium interior for Intramurals
and  top-soiling stadium fields.
5. Handbook ln pamphlet form
for freshmen and later a student
directory wtth full Information, also containing  advertising.
Junior Member
The following are five points upon which I urge earnest consideration and upon which my policy, as
candidate  for Treasurer,  is based:
1. Student Building: Promotion of
collection   of   final   $8,000.00.
2. Pass System: Continuation ot
efforts to provide functions of interest to all pass holders.
3. Reorganization of Totem
Board: Establishment of Totem
business director for the maintenance of this year's low cost. Reduction in cost of Ubyssey to the
Alma Mater Society.
4. Minor Clubs: Completion of
efforts to make the Alma Mater office custodian of all campus funds
for proteetion  of  minor  clubs.
6. Bookstore: Co-operation with
N.F.C.U.S. ln breaking monopoly
prices on university textbooks and
I have made my duty since the
time I was nominated for the position to enquire into the various responsibilities pertaining to the offlce of Junior member.
Roughly the work can be divided
Into three parts; Firstly, the responsibility for the freshman class
initiation and business during the
flrst term; secondly, the staging of
homecoming; thirdly, those odd
jobs, such as room allotment which
may be imposed on the Junior member from time to time.
In the first place I would favor
extending the work of the Freshman Information Bureau. In regard
to Homecoming arrangements, I
can not stress too much the importance of keeping close connections
with our Alumni. Therefore, I
would advocate that still greater
emphasis be placed on Homecoming
as an event of importance in student affairs.
In regard to the other odd duties
of the offlce I can only say that my
previous experience in student executive positions should enable me
to handle these capably.
If elected, I assure you that I
shall justify the confidence of those
who have supported me.
I accept this nomination fully
cognizant of the duties entailed In
the Office of Junior Member. For
the past six weeks I have been
actively engaged In the Student
Campaign Committee and I Intend
to carry on this work ln an effort
to achieve  satisfactory results.
I feel that I could do my part
more efficiently were I a member
of the Student Council. Therefore
I am asking for your sincere consideration when ranking me on
your ballot and in return I shall
warant any confidence placed in
As candidate for the office of Junior Member, I would like to outline
briefly my platform. My policies,
If elected,  will be:
1. To 1 n v e s tlgate thoroughly
Frosh initiation and to establish a
permanent form of initiation ceremony.
2. To establish a more satisfactory system of allotting rooms with
a view to relieving the present confusion.
3. To advocate suitable provisions for the Players Club and Mu-
tlcal Society ln the new Union
4. To further the publicity campaign by making Homecoming a
Notice this Is brief. I wish to
be a Junior Member. I havo convictions on many phases of University activities. The offlce of Junior Member has a full vote to be
exercised.    It will be.
The freshman class must receive
complete introductions into the athletic and social life on the campus.
The only way to accomplish this
will be through the Introduction ot
a university director. Yours truly,
"Honest T.  C."
As a candidate for the position

1. Need for closer co-operation
among the various women's organizations.
2. The necessity of creating university consciousness among freshettes.
3. Co-operation with the Dean of
Women's offlce ln fostering Faculty-
Finally, I would place my sincere
effort behind every project which

this University.
2. To maintain the present personnel and procedure of the Discipline Committee and avoid all
publicity connected with penalties
3. To avoid major alterations in
the Pass System.
4. To use my vote on the Students' Council ln a conscientious and
conservative manner.
I wish to thank most sincerely
those who supported me so well
during the recent Presidential elections.
Freshman  Inltltlon
No hazing. I am in favor of
training the freshmen in the traditions of the university and the
responsibility to their Alma Mater.
Though minor reorganization is
necessary, no drastic changes are
needed. Rather than a Student
Court I am in favor of Discipline

to ensure immediate construction.
Publicity Campaign
Continuance ot the Campaign.
Absolute  co-operation.
I wish to take this opportunity
to solicit your personal, support ln
my favor as president of the Men's
Undergraduate  Society.
Such matters as favorable publicity for the University, the granting ot a pure science degree, improvements in the pass system, etc.,
demand sane, aggressive and practical promotion.
I believe that I am capable of
giving to these matters the promotion that will be ln the best interests, not of any specific group or
faculty, but of the entire student
The governing of athletics at U.
B.C. requires an energetic program
supported by experience and stability. I offer my candidature with
these facts ln mind.
My platform includes:
1. Appointment of director of athletics to control all extra-mural
student athletics.
2. Expansion of intercollegiate
athletics with major universities—
basketball, skiing, rowing, track,

3. Academic credit for extra cur-
ricular activities.
4. Unbiased decisions ln dealing
with all clubs.
5. Co-operation with the Publicity

6. Revision of pass system.
On the basts of these suggestions
nnd my experience as president of
the Hockey Club, I solicit your aupport.

will outline the major points in my
platform as nominee for the position of M.A.A.
1. Athletics on a paying basis

2. Intramurals . . . continuation
and a new high lu Van Vliet's Intramural  policies.
3. Intercollegiate Competition . ..
more self-supporting trips for Varsity teams.
4. Executive . . . Full use of this
executive ln all decisions pertaining  to  athletics.
5. Revision of Awards Committee . . . coaches and president of
Big Block club to be an awards

stringent co-oporatlon of team managers to  alevlate  the  loss of  strip.
By way of conclusion I will cooperate to the fullest extent with
the student council, the athletic
directory nnd Maurice Van Vllet.
My platform includes:
1. Establishing a Men's Athletlo
Council to consist of Students, Director of Physical Educalon, faculty and alumni, for the reorganization, administration and promotion of all major and minor sports
and intra-mural activities, with a
view to putting the major activities
on a self-supporting basis.
2. Continuing and furthering intercollegiate sport on a sound financial basis.
3. Working towards the establishment of a Department of Physical
Education, with practical and theoretical courses, recognized by the
4. Promoting university spirit
through athletics.
5. Co-operating with Students'
Council and committees ln carrying
out general policies.
At the outset let me congratulate
Carson McGulre on his presidential victory. I feel that the best
man for the job has been elected
and I am willing to co-operate with
him whenever possible. Although
I opposed him ln that eleotion, our
policies were very similar. Consequently I feel fully justified In continuing my support of the program
I advocated.
Action should be taken to avert
the impending increase in fee* and
the publicity campaign must be vigorously continued. In these things
I am ready to follow Carson Mo-
Quire. Moreover, the Union Building can and should be completed
this summer. Tho university
should take advantage ot the reorganization of the N.F.C.U.S..
Here I would support the C.S.A. on
this campus: press tor a reduction
In the royalties on university plays;
and take action to break the present monopolistic prices ot textbooks. In regard to the Pass System, revision should be effected by
next year. Malcolm Brown's reorganization of the L.S.E. must be
continued and enlarged. Finally,
as to "Varsity Time," I feel that
a great effort must be made next
year to Improve the quality of its
As a candidate for the offlce of
President of the L.S.E. I would like
to stress the continuation of the
proressive policies already Inaugurated by Malcolm Brown, present
Incumbent of the offlce.
The L.S.E., as a major division
of the Alma Mater Society, should
receive the consideration, financial
and otherwise, that it deserves.
Under the setup organized this year
I believe it will be possible to continue improving the state of the
L.S.E. clubs.
I pledge myself to this task.
My experience in L.S.E. has included two terms as secretary of
the Forum, with extensive debating experience; active membership
in the Psychology and Cosmopolitan Clubs; presidency of S.C.M.
and membership on the Letters
Club executive. My work as Associate Editor on the Ubyssey has
brought me ln contact with other
■club activities, and through my position on the major L.S.E. executive
I have gained a thorough knowledge of the functioning of the L.
I stand for active support of the
publicity campaign; commencement
of the Union Building; revision of
pass; continuance and constitutionalization of the present L.S.E. executive system; and action towards
giving a B.Sc. degree for Artsmen

to the Pass System.

admission on tholr pasaes to baskot-
ball gamea where th* Unlveralty

Yesterday while Panhellenic enthusiastically approved
plans by which sorority rushing will be almost completely
eliminated on this campus in the future, the inter-fraternity
council amended its constitution with a view to slashing their
rushing programs practically in half. Thus by two different
courses, and in two different degrees, important attacks are
being made on the other fraternity root of all evils—rushing.
Both changes—the comparatively mild and merely restrictive amendments of the men, and the revolutionary new
constitution of the women—must be hailed as outstanding
reforms by everyone concerned. Only possible objections in
sight are of those who have the most to lose—the fraternities
and sororities who can spend the most on rushing, who can
give the poor unstable frosh the greatest run-around, and
unjustly influence them with the best show.
Of course, the frosh will not have so much "fun," but
that will be, in the long run, all the more to their advantage.
They will be able to make their choices with all the greater
degree of sanity.
Just how well the new women's system, details of which
are given elsewhere in this paper, will act in actual service,
remains to be seen. It is an experiment in the sense that, to
our knowledge, it has not been tried anywhere else on this
continent. Undoubtedly flaws will crop up. If they are minor
ones they will not be beyond remedy. The likelihood of flaws
of a magnitude to force reversion to the old methods does not
seem at all great.
Inter-fraternity council has made a very considerable
and valuable reform. Panhellenic has undertaken an experiment that may revolutionize the sorority world, and whose
possibility of success looks bright.
At the last moment yesterday, with no chance to prepare
a counterclaim, five candidates were notified of "ineligibility"
to contest in the approaching council elections. When the
supposed "ineligibility" hinges on an ambiguity, it would
seem that either the candidates should have been notified
sooner, in time to present their cases, or an authoritative
decision on the ambiguity should have been secured before
action was taken.
The matter hinges on the following paragraph in the
eligibility rules: "All class 'A' offlce holders shall be eligible
from the previous spring exams."
Just what spring exams are "previous"?
Council members do not take office until one week after
the end of the term. By which exams, 1937, or 1938, should
the present candidates, who do not take offlce till the 1938
exams are over, be declared eligible or ineligible?
A few members of council have taken the arbitrary stand
that the 1937 exams are those to which the rules refer. But
is the argument not as strong, or even stronger, for the
others ?
In all fairness to the candidates, both of this year and
of future years, the matter should be clarified—not arbitrarily by one or two council members, but authoritatively by a
vote of the council as a whole.
Announcement has been made that commencement of
work on the Brock Memorial Union Building may be made
when classes cease this spring. Following the suggestion laid
down in these columns last fall, the committee in charge of
this project has seen fit to utilize what money is on hand for
the flrst unit of a much-needed building.
It is to be hoped that the committee will keep in mind
that they are building a first unit, and not a complete structure. They must leave the way clear for expansion, at the
same time including in the building facilities that the students can make the best use of. There is a suggestion being
advanced by some that the committee is not making the
best use of its money—that the two provisions above are one
included in the best manner possible in the Union Building
plans. If there is anything to this fact, the situation should
be corrected. At any rate, the matter should be thoroughly
The matter of plans being happily disposed of—as we
feel certain it will be—there remains the important matter
of finding the last few thousand dollars and erecting a building at once. We have waited long enough while committees
decided what to do with money at hand for more than a year.
The suggestion, coming from the committee in the past few
days, that there may be some immediate action taken, has
been long in coming. It is hoped that there will be no more

"Canada has no characteristic nationality or true individuality." This statement was
made by us yesterday as a
whimsical contribution to a
lagging conversation over coffee in the caf.
The hair-trigger reply to
this momentous idea was the
equally nerve - shattering
query, "Wasn't it a Canadian
who developed ice hockey 7"
The gentleman's an Irishman, and we suspected for a
moment that he was pulling
our leg. But, having taken a
second look at his serious
countenance, we suddenly began to wonder whether Canada is still just the land of ice
and snow and redskins.
Taking a look around we decided that the young man's
unwitting irony was not without foundation.
We took a walk and looked
at our stupendous mountains
which would make a Parisien
green with envy. We met a
gentleman who is an ardent
member of the Political Discussion Club, and we asked
him,   "What   is   the   foreign
Eolicy at Ottawa at present ?"
[e replied, "It seems to be to
lie on your back and let everyone walk over you."
We weren't so sure of that.
However, we did notice that
the idea, and the way in
which it was expressed was a
far cry from "varsity time."
We did, nevertheless, upon rumination, decide that the idea
had a vague connection with
Canada's present policy in regard to Japan.
At the present Canada is indulging in an armaments
spree which runs into the millions of dollars. The terrific
tale of a six-inch gun in Stanley Park is a bed-time story
beside the private information
which we possess. At one
point on this coast there are
600 men working 24 hours a
day erecting emplacements
for guns which will rise to the
size of 14 inch, each in that
battery hurling a shell of
over two tons in weight. We
could give you other information if we had permission to
do so.
At the same time there are
Japanese in Vancouver, and
up and down the B. C. Coast,
who openly boast of their naval connections. Confirmation
of this is the fact that there
is in Vancouver at present a
large special Intelligence detail with particular orders.
We have read editorials in
the Vancouver dailies on the
matter of commercial penetration, as well. This is not as
important a factor to us at
the present, but it is an indication that we have a wonderful, and very little developed
country of rich natural resources.
We wonder what line of
logic Ottawa employs, that it
permits itself to spend millions on defense, and then politely ducks the other half of
the problem by the excuse of
diplomatic necessity.
Perhaps Ottawa is influenced by those same "leaders of
industry" who are so anxious
to make pay dirt out of the
Sino - Japanese conflict with
the exportation of metals and
other raw materials to Japan
so that she may open the way
to more fruitful natural resources, to become, in time, an
even greater menace in the
Perhaps Ottawa has decided
to play a waiting policy of diplomacy. But then that is
traditional for Canada anyway, and, in fact, with Canadians in general.
England has its mercantile
marine, its colonial empire,
and its Whigs and Tories,
along with Eden, Halifax and
The United States has its
big business, its high-produc
tion industry, its Wall Street,
its Main Street, and its Hollywood.
Both have the problems of
unemployment, etc. Both are
developing, along definite
lines, their available resources of wealth.
Canada has unemployment
and debts too, but little else.
Canada has vast resources:
and Canada is still waiting.
For what we don't know . . .
but we suspect that it is for
something or someone to do
something about it. Some day
that may happen, but Canada
won't like it.
Of course we have the Quebec Padlock Law which is so
efficiently accomplishing that
amazingly negative feat of
saving Canada from the awful spectre of Communism by
curbing the right of free
speech and the circulation of
fresh ideas, those same ideas
which Ottawa lacks.
Perhaps, if Canada could
discover that individuality
and national character in other things than ice hockey, and
develop its own human and
natural resources along some
firogressive lines with a defln-
te objective other than the
negative objective of following the band-wagon of Japan
and the United States of
America we might see other
than nine over-governed and
under-populated p r o v i n ces
squabbling about their petty
rights, debt disputes, and
quack economic and political
systems while the big boys,
and the progressive American
investor, and the sly Japanese
make hay.

A bare quarter length apelt
victory for Varaity oarsmen In
Corvallis, a* U.B.C. wiped out a
defeat of two years past when
they outrowed the Oregon State
College crew laat Saturday.
Termed by Coach Stevens, Oregon coach and ex-Harvard oar,
as the closest race he had witnessed In many a season, the two
crews had the three hundred spectators insane by the last hundred yards spurt which swept the
Thunderbirds a fraction of a
boat-length ahead of the Southerners.
Victory for the U.B.C. rowers
meant more than a successful
race, for their triumph signified
Varsity's recognition as a real
threat In lightweight rowing
after a slump of more than three
U.B.C. rowers sped off at the
start with the high beat of 38
strokes to the minute, which Stroke
Bob Pearce held for the major part
of the course, and finally whipped
up to 40 per minute. Oregon Beavers contented themselves with a
32 beat, thus adjusting themselves
to the strong current against which
the two boats drove. The Vancouver
boys, prepared for a race in light
shells  and  calm   water,  used   their
faat stroke to advantage in the first
half of the race when they rowed
prow for prow with the Beavers.
At the half-way mark Jim Kerns,
the Oregon stroke, stepped up the
Beaver tempo from 32 to 36 and
gradually pulled away from the
swift-stroking   Canadians.
A hundred yards to go found
Varsity back at neck and neck
with Oregon. Cox Churchill
shouted for more power. He'got
It with B. C. actually hefting the
shell over the finish line a good
three feet ahead of the game
Bob Pearce, U.B.C. stroke, rated
individual honours of the day with
his smooth stroking which gave
the Thunderbirds that edge which
spelt defeat for the Beavers. Coach
Frank Wilson's exceptionally fine
coaching was evidenced In the
crew's rowing and was especially
noticeable with crew-men having
their flrst year in senior company.
"Vancouver Rowing Club will
share a similar fate to Oregon's
a week Saturday," prophesies
Bob Melville, 1937 senior oar and
prexy this year. Varsity defeated
Oregon training in the light boats
with calm water and therefore a
high stroke rate.

LONDON, ONT., March 11 (CUP)—Freshman initiation
has been abolished at the University of Western Ontario.
University of Western Ontario authorities yesterday
moved decisively to outlaw the annual fall festivities of the
"Wearing of the Green," Which last fall resulted in the trial,
before a student court, of over 17 freshmen and sophomores
charged with law-breaking in regard to initiation rules and
man-handling. The majority received fines.
Initiation has been a thorn in
the  side  of   Western   ever  since
vigorous activities were forbidden
there,  and  frequent  breaches  of
the milder forms of initiation by
many students who instigated, on
their own initiative, more active
measures have resulted in much
controversy following the logical
legal action of student authorities

Wright and Pringle Spark Men of Maury to Win;
Rann Matthison High Scorer In Torrid Battle.
A whooping, hollering mob ot hoop fane that packed the Varaity
gym to capacity Wedneaday night saw the Thunderbirda edge out Weaterna 38-35 in a hectic battle that opened the intercity flnalB.
Trailing 21-16 at the breather, the atudentB ataged a brilliant aecond
halt rally to overtake the Sports. Centre aquad ln the third quarter and
keep out ahead the reat of the tilt.
Varaity'a air-tight cone defence
stifled the Weaterna' aalllea under
th'e baaket and forced them to
■hoot from 'way out. However, in
the flrat half, the trio of Wllloughby, Barldaley and Don Wright
couldn't aeem to miaa, looping
them   in   trom   almost   at  centre.
Although the Thunderbirds fought
back they were unable to hold the
Gymnasta down and were trailing
by Ave markera at the half.
In the opening minutes of the
second stansa, Ross sank a sitter
to push Westerns 7 points ahead,
but the 'Birds got under way and
pulled up to within two points of
the leader* by the middle of the
period. At this point, Pat Flynn
dropped one in from underneath the
hoop to knot the count at 37-all.
Another braee ef ba skate by
"Hooker" Wright and Plynn together with a free throw by Matthlaon gave the Collegian* a 8-
polnt lead  at th* three-quarter*.
In the closing period the Westerns tried hard to overtake the
'Bird a but they managed to hang
on to their margin until the last
few minutes of the game when,
with less than two minutes to go,
Ross and Mayers found the hoop to
cut the count to 37-35. A free
throw by Matthison Just before full
time put the game on ice for Varsity.
Rann Matthison was high scorer
for the Blue and Oold aquad with 9
markers, followed by Ken Wright
and Alec Lucas with 8. "Joe"
Pringle did some marvellous defence work, snatching rebound after rebound aa well aa tallying six
much needed pointa. Bardsley waa

Junior 'Birds
Battle  Trojans
With another shutout under their
belts after the clash with Cougars
last Saturday at Braemar whom
they blanked 10-0, Varsity is all aet
to tangle with the league-leading
Trojans from Kitsilano.
Suffering from the effects of a
24-0   beating   from   the  Men   of
Troy in their laat game the Blue
and Gold are out to even thlnga
up this  Saturday. The game on
the upper field  at 2.30,  will aee
Jack   Stevenson   back,  who   has
been but with an Injured knee.
It is rumoured that Martin and
Farina will be unable to play owing to injuries.   Perhaps these Big
Four men  find  the going  a  little
tough in junior football.
The boys played a good game
last week, the flrst half with only
10 men, as most of the backfleld
were off in the city In a car crack-
up, and should click tomorrow.
Here we give you Tod Tremblay,
star backfield man of the Ruggers, who will be out tomorrow
with the rest of the divot-diggers in the annual spring golf
tournament held at the University Course.
Led by the flying feet of Scott
and Brown, tracksters from Arts
'40 have practically run away with
the Intra-Mural track meet held
this week. Both of these men were
double winners, with Scott snaffling easy firsts in the 440 and the
880 and Brown scoring wins in the
low hurdles and 100-yard dash.
With a grand total of 42 points the
Sophs are far out in front of their
closest rival, Science '40, which has
been able to get only 15 points and
yet is in second place.
Pat Porter scored a surprise win
in the high jump, eliminating such
stars as Evan ap Roberts and Bob
Hayman . Energy ap, however, who
spent the better part of the day
running from the high jump pit to
the discus field, came through in
this latter event with a heave of
110 feet. In the other teat of
strength, the shot put, Ion "Tarzan"
McLennan, of Arts' 40, scored an
easy win.
The most exciting event of the
day goes to the low hurdle race
which saw Brown and Day-Smith
run a dead heat with Aub Grey
only a step or two behind these
leaders. Most convincing win of
the day went to Scott, who waltzed
around the track in the 440 in the
good time of 64 seconds with the
rest of the. field literally miles behind him.
There are four more events to be
run off and these will be held today
noon. They include the 50-yard
dash, the standing broad jump, the
440 relay and the mile. This will
give Science '40 a chance to gain
on the leaders as they are favored
in all these events with Jim Ushher
looking like a cinch in the 50-yard
The best has been saved for the
last, however, as the feature track
attraction of the season will take
place this afternoon at 8.30. It is
the open mile and will find Vance
McComber, present king of this
event, pitted against the up and
coming Ward De Beck and Wilf
Pendray. The boy* will be out to
do the distance in 4.30 or less, as
that is the time that is required to
anter the Portland meet to be held
in the near future.
This Intra-Mural track meet is
just another stone in the construction of the upper class competition
that is being built up thia year, and
great credit is due Director Maury
Van Vliet for the manner In whieh
he Is arousing spirit and enthusiasm for these events this year.
With four wina in novelty events
the Juniors forged ahead to nose
out the Freshettes by 27 to 23 in
the Intramural swimming meet
Wedneaday night at Canadian Memorial.
Although downed In the stunts,
the Sophs showed their supremacy in plain swimming by grabbing off flrst place in both the
relays,   with   their  speedy   quartet   composed    of    Betty    Fleck,
Janet Fleck, Betty Cole, and Pauline Banford.
Second  in  both relays were the
Freshettes led by Valerie Gardiner
and Madge Thompson.
The U.B.C. hockeyists battled to
a disappointing 1-all tie against
North Van Grads at Memorial Park
Saturday. The Collegian* rushed
the Grad* to score early in the flrst
half only to see them retaliate a
few minutes later to tie it up.
The U.B.C.' eleven has already
won one cup signifying Division
"B" championship for the fall season. Now they are after the Lower
Mainland Cup for the spring term.
Next team to oppose the Co-eds
will be Kitsilano at Connaught Park,
tomorrow at 2.16. The girls feel
that they could do better with a
few supporter*.
Hockey practice today at 8.45.
Students Agitate
Change in Awards
Agitation among a group of students in sub-major sport for alteration of the present awards plan
was seen on the campus yesterday.
The group, headed by Michael
Churchill, of the Rowing Club,
would like a similar plan as that
followed in some American universities, where small blocks are
complimented with a small emblem
indicative of the type of sport for
which the block was awarded.
Churchill explained that crew and
ice hockey small blocks should have
small oars and hockey sticks on
them. He pointed out that the golf
club has criss-cross sticks decorating its sweaters.
Churchill and others may present
their plan for ratification to Students'  Council.

It's the Varsity Soccer Club's big
day tomorrow . For the first time
this year the  Collegians  have  an
important game listed with no other
outstanding   attractions   for   Blue
and Gold supporters to witness. The
big  game, which will  see  no  less
renowned an aggregation of round-
ballers than Nanaimo Galahads opposing Charlie Hitchhins* proteges,
will fill the first half of a mammoth
double-header  soccer menu   to   be
partaken of by Soccer fans at Athletic Park Saturday afternoon.
The Galahad*, who are champions of the league operating thla
year in Nanaimo, will bring over
a strong team to battle the hard-
luck   Campusmen,   who   almost
bearded the Coal City   boy*   In
their own den last week-end. Losing by the only goal scored in •
nlp-and-tuck encounter, the Hitch-
insmen came within an ace of at
least drawing eveu in the contest
when Doug Todd crashed a penalty against the Inside of the upright only to see it roll clear of
the goal
Thus with the Galahads striving
to  make   it   two   straight in  the
seriers, and the Collegians doing
\heir utmost to justify themselves
before skeptical campus prophets,
the game should prove to be a real
Battle Royal.
Art Chapman, consistent Varsity right-winger, will be back to
aid the Blue and Gold cause after
an absence of one week from the
line-up and his inclusion will complete th* strongest outfit that the
campus can muster. Husky Jack
Rush, who played a brilliant game
in Nanaimo despite a badly bruised leg, is back In top shape again
and will hold down hi* old apot at
right-half. The rest of the aquad
led by veterans Dan Quayle and
Alan Croll are In tip-top condition a* a result of strenuous
workout* and feel confident that
they will emerge with a Jinx-
breaking victory.
