uthe was Involved. Schuthe at that
time declared that he was ready
to go back to the aea at any time.
Last week he and the others got
their chance. All six have had

Discuss Membership
For New War Board
* MACHINERY for the revitalization and co-ordination of
the University's war effort will be set up tonight at the
weekly Students' Council meeting when personnel for the
Students' War Council will be appointed.
The      importance      of      choosing ^______«______«_»«_a_____________ss_»
membera who will be representative of and have the aupport of
all factions of the student body Is
realized by Council and has caused considerable speculation In various campus groups.
One of the most likely suggestions under consideration will Include all class presidents on the
war board. If this plan Is adopted,
the elected student representatives will choose their own -working executives from amongst their
numbers or have authority to appoint any other students they may

e    VANDALISM    WHICH    RESULTED in damage to lockers
In the Arts Building last week has

No reports of fresh destruction

Discovery by students returning
from a tea-dance laat week of a

Coalitionists Score Noisy
Victory in Forum Debate
• STUDENT "COALITIONISTS" scored a decisive victory
Friday noon in Aggie 100 when an audience vote taken
after the conclusion of a four-man debate n the topic: "Resolved that B.C. should have a coalition government of all
three parties" bestowed approval on the arguments of the
affirmative team.
Orant   Livingstone   and   Caraon        -__-_-----____-_---_-i

team, argued the afnnnatrre ease.
John Anderson and Erie Brown op-
the resolution.

Sex Education Plea
Has Mixed Response
e    IMMEDIATELY AFTER the appearance of Friday's edition, the question of the moment on the campus seemed
to be "Have you read) Lionel Salt> Column?"
Two   Ubyssey  reporters  conducted  a   survey   among
the faculty and students of the university to discover the re-
., action  of  the  individual  student^.    Although  many  of  the
• students just blushed and ran, many others showed that they
had given the matter considerable thought.
Women studenta on the campus,        ^_____*_^_____________*———
-tor reasons unknown, were loath
to give their opinions on the question. Following are some of the
comments by some of the men students:
John Carson, president of Phi
Delta Theta: "The need for sex
education must be apparent to
everyone, however, an article such
as the one on the last edition of
the Ubyssey tends to give the problem an air of the ridiculous."
Dave Goldie, freshman says:
"That kind of education should be
stressed  at Varsity."
Bob   Morris,   president   of   L.S.E.:
"I feel it a pertinent problem, and
it there is any place Where an educational program of sex education
and preparation for marriage
should be given It Is at University."
Dr. G. G. Sedgewick seemed to
be the only member of the faculty,
questioned, who would comment
>n the subject. "It is a dangerous
subject to put in the hands of a
sentimentalist. A person fully Informed, cool and scientific -would
the only one who could handle
lo subject  adequately."
Next Wed.
e THE HYIU-OWS membership
campaign begins today with
the distribution of pledge forms
about the campus. A meeting of
all those interested In the club
will be held tomorrow ln Aggie
100 at 12:30.
Stated Arnold Johnson, temporary president of the club, "The
foundation haa been laid and it's
up to the members now. The
meeting tomorrow will decide how
much interest the men of the com.
pus have ln the Hytu-ows' purpose.
Opinions around the campus
seem to be In favor of the Idea.
Ted McBride, A.M.S. president
agreed. "The Hylu-ow club la a
very fine Idea. It haa proved to
be very successful on American
campuses and I see no reason why
It shouldn't be equally successful
at U.B.C."
Prof. W. H. Oage gave the opinion that "If the organization
plans to be just another club then
It could afford the younger atu-
dents an excellent opportunity to
participate In extra-curricular activities."

Ruin Ernie's
Tire, Budget
new tire.
Ernie Oreene? He's just one of
many car owners who dally pilots
a carload of Varsity students to
and from the campus.
Last Friday, Ernie tooled his car
into the parking lot—now he haa a
new tire,
A broken "coke" bottle, pieces
strewn carelessly over the lot,
slashed one tire to ribbons—slashed, also, one budget that had not
allowed for such expediency.
Says Ernie: "I can't understand
why students should be so careless
on the parking lot. After all, those
that fool around with coke botUes
on the lot. are the ones that sooner
or  later  will  get   stuck."
Meanwhile, Ernie's car (plus
new tire) Is now parked back of
the Library.
Mild heckling from the audience
waa bestowed impartially upon
membera of both teams, in spite
of a plea by the chairman for a
quiet reception of the sometimes-
impassioned argumenta of the

he leapt to hla teet la bitter pro-
teat against the "personalities" offered by hla opponent. He remained atandlng for aeveral mlnutea ia
stormy protest, while Brown continued with hla argument.
A atrong plea for a coalition
government waa made by Orant
Livingstone, flrst affirmative apeaker, who stressed the fact that there
were only three poaaible alterna-

were: coalition, a Conaervatlve-

or another eleotion, which he declared would coat the taxpayera

"A ohaotlo atate of confuaed la-
sues" was the term used by Eric
Brown in a warn'*--* that coalition
would not prove practicable.
The Conservative party, he affirmed, was the only group which
desired coalition today.
The debate waa the aecond ot

Exam Dates Shock
Neon Oil Burners
• STUDENTS  ARRIVING on the •—■————
campus Friday morning were
jolted out of their customary Inertia by the sight of the examination notice pinned up so all could
see.  They start  December 10th.
They realized suddenly that the
halcyon and carefree days of the
fall term were over and that now
thoy must face the unpleasant rigours of exams. If they hadn't taken warning by the mid-terms this
matter-of-fact document in evidence everywhere with its cold recital of exams and dates sounded
the death knell of pleasure and
the start of a solitary life starting
the moment they turned away
from  that notice.
Mutterlngs of various degrees of
profanity were heard on all sides.
Some blanched from fear of the
day of reckoning. Others turned
pink as they remembered the
night they wished they had stud-
led. Those faces you see ln the
library ell the time were seen to
turn away from the notice boards
with pleased expressions and a
look  of relish.
Come the 10th and all will be
wielding pens with what results
no man can tell.

"Take The Lead Out"—
Don't read this editorial if you sincerely
believe you are doing all in you' power to
contribute to our mythical "university war
effort." Don't read it, either, if you are one
of those individuals who gets very indignant
when he finds something in a newspaper
that perhaps hits his personal ego a little
too hard, even though deep down he knows
he is at fault, not the article.
The following remarks apply collectively, and in most cases, individually to university students and are intended to supply
food for thought which will turn into concrete action when and if our all-inclusive
war services board is created this week.
It is a fact that a few women students
sincerely believe they are doing their full
share out here, and we would be the last to
belittle the noble efforts they are putting
forth in Red Cross work. A number of male
students also are really convinced they are
giving their all in our "play army". Naturally, they are thinking of next year when
they will obtain commissions and follow the
students who have gone before on active
But the vast majority of us, if we are
truly honest with ourselves, will admit that
the war hasn't come very close and hasn't
made many changes in our sheltered lives.
We don't feel bad about it, either, "because,"
we say, "look at other people outside university. We're doing as much and more
than they. We're in the army six hours a
Then We go to some social function and
forget the unpleasant subject, because it is
just a nuisance which has come to explode
the beautiful plans we had laid for after
graduation. Once we had a future to look
forward to, but that is gone now. What's
the use of working, anyhow?
Stand off and view in proper perspective our magnificent campus, now in its third
"war session". To see the number of cars
on our parking lot gives no hint that we
are supposed to be conserving gasoline this
year. To compare this term's social calender with that of any pre-war session shows
no cutting down of parties and dances. To
observe the responses our various war appeals and campaigns have received proves
we haven't fully realized the responsibility
we must assume because our country is at
Why is not the money that is wasted on
luxuries and frivolities this year given to
our Red Cross fund? Why go on kidding
ourselves that we have a great war effort at
U.B.C. when the sum we contribute to it is
only a fraction of the amount spent on social
functlona alone? Why get sore if these things
are pointed out to us and we are told to
remedy the situation?
The machinery which we need to
change our war effort from one of lethargy
to one of power is in the making. It is up
to YOU to resolve you will get behind that
machinery and help it move our war effort
from the mire into which lt haa bogged. Tlie
rate at which it will move will vary ln
direct proportion to the force put behind it.
The Mummery • • • w«*«
Until very recently, the Kaf was for me
a somewhat legendary place, a sort of Inferno, with gravy.
I had never been down there.
Then, a few noons ago, I rashly decided to supplement my lunch by entering
the land of hubbub and purchasing a portion
of pie. For some unknown reason, I thought
this would be easy. I also believe In fairies.
The start Was promising enough. I dealt
myself a tray, put my sandwiches and a
fork upon lt, and proceeded to slide it along
the rails, rounding the corner with a flourish,
like a veritable veteran.
Arriving at the Dessert Lady, I pulled
into the curb to confess:
"I'd like a piece of apple pie!"
The Dessert Lady shrugged wearily.
"I'd like a mink coat," she sighed, "but
we're both stuck with rice custard."
I compromised by accepting the rice
custard, and, hurrying guiltily past the rest
of the food, preaented myself before the
Scylla of the cash register.
"Just charge me with the custard,
please," I said. "The sandwiches oame ln
with me."
Scylla slftted her eyes at me suspiciously.
"How do I know these are your sandwiches?" she demanded. "We sell sandwiches here, too, you know."
"But these sandwiches are wrapped in
grease-proof paper!" I protested.
"You could have wrapped our's in
grease-proof paper," she pursued relent
"I COULD have shot Cock Robin, but
I didn't!" I snarled. "So put away your Dick
Tracy badge, and charge me with the custard, eh?"
She picked up my sandwiches to peer
closely between the pieces of bread.
"If these are your sandwiches," she said
slowly, "what kind are they?"
"I wouldn't know," I replied sullenly,
"My mother never tells me anything."
"You're lucky," she snapped, throwing
the sandwiches back on the tray. "They're
ham, and we haven't got ham today."
"You mean you aren't going to put the
handcuffs on me?" I crowed.   "I'm free to
go out into the world and eat my rice custard?"
After shaking hands brokenly with
Bulldog Drummond, I looked around for a
place to sit down and eat my hard-won calories. Quickly I grasped the full horror of
a new situation. There was no port ln that
sea of faces. Someone else was sitting in my
I shuttled from table to table in vain,
like a cigarette girl with bow-legs. The
weight of the tray was rapidly becoming intolerable, so I tottered back reluctantly to
the Scylla of the Cash Register.
"There's no place to sit down!" I complained.
She smiled sweetly.
"Then I guess you'll have to dream the
rest," she drawled,
the aisle."
"But please don't block
roared. "What do you want me to do? Fly
around and drop pamphlets?"
At that moment, however, I spied a
vacant chair, and aped to it with open
throttle. The rest of the people at the table
were women, but it was worth it just to
sit down.
But as I raised the first battered sandwich to my mouth, I noticed that the women
were staring at me intently, as were also
people at neighboring tables, and an ominous hush seemed to have fallen over the
area. I looked to see If the ham were hanging out ot the sandwich, straightened my
tie, and blew my nose, all without removing
the source of interest.
Finally, exasperated by this ill-timed
attention, I turned to the nearest observer,
and whispered:
"Is my slip showing?"
"This is a sorority table," she returned
coldly, "and none of our members have
I noticed several boys at nearby tables
winking at me now, and one whistled suggestively. The position was obviously untenable. I rose majestically, holding the rice
custard in one hand and the sandwiches in
the other.
"I trust you will be able to use this chair
again," I said stiffly, and strode out, dropping the rice custard out of its pot just outside the door.
And they say we no longer have to kill
to obtain food.

Dear Slt>:
Due to an over-crowded library
and an over noisy Caf, and Brock
Hall I was recently forced to take
up my position In the Men's Common Room ln the Arts Building.
After sitting for a great length of
time on the table, I managed to
secure a chair and seUled down
for a quiet period of study. Terf
minutes later I went for _a walk
to  ease   my  aching  muscles.
While doing this I glanced in
the door of the Women's Common
Room. Here the co-eds were lolling In gigantic arm chairs and
chesterfields — looking somewhat
like well-fed Persian cats. It was
then that the Injustice of It struck
me. The men have allowed the
women to vote, we have allowed
them to take our jobs, we have
allowed them to smoke and drink
along with us—aye, we have even
let them wear our clothes. Why
do we still pamper them with luxuries?
My suggestion, is that either we
put one or two lounges ln the
Men's Common Room or else replace some of these ln the Women's
with up-turned apple-boxes or
empty nail kegs. I don't want It
thought that I am a woman-hater.
I love them all but It ls my injured sense of justice that promotes
thia letter.
The furniture In the Men'a Common room waa ao mlewaod several
years ago that It waa taken away.

On  The
My Dear Mr. Salt:
In coirhnon with B9.9 per cent of
the campus I have read your
astonishing little effort In laat Friday's Ubyssey and feel that I must
put ln my oar.
Had your principle motive ln
writing Friday's Oatepost been
solely and simply to promote a
series of courses In Sex on the
campus, then there would be no
need of writing this letter.
Main Motive
But having read your column
thoroughly I have been forced to
draw the conclusion that that was
not your main motive.
Your main motive, I am afraid,
was to shock people.
You wanted to make young coeds blush and strong Freshmen
turn pale, and you wanted people
to say, breathlessly, Oh Isn't He
the Daring Young Fellow, Though.
I don't think anybody waa shocked, Lionel, but I am aure there
were thoae who were disgusted.
I rank your Uttle effort with
thoae booka you aee advertised In
the pulp magaalnea (You know the
type: Waa $10.00, now $1.99. Never
before auch daring faota revealed.
Written by ten doctors, twice rejected by New York Censor Board.
You pay postman, return if not
aatlafled. Mailed to you In plain
brown wrapper.)
Juicy Words
Masked aa Innocent Youth grasping for Knowledge you have given
a good synopsis of What Every
Schoolboy Should Know, well In-
teraperaed with aome of those nice
Juicy words which every co-ed
Isn't supposed to know.
Let us all take off our hats and
kneel before the shrine of Lionel
Salt—the man who had the courage, the daring, the nerve to write
a column that didn't mince words.
It reminds me of the frank sex
discussions the Publications Board
used to hold periodically when
they were short of reporters. These
word-orgies used to last for fllve
hours, then they'd boast about
them for five days. Forty freshmen were Invariably killed ln the
rush to join the staff.
Your cravings for a Sex course
at U.B.C. are to be commended,
Lionel. Let me be the first to support you on that score. But your
methods of asking for the course
defeat your purpose.
Had your pen been more gifted,
you might have succeeded ln turning out a far more tactful, far
more effective, and far more sincere plea for ordered Instruction
In Sex at U.B.C.
Instead you succeeded ln turning
out a bit of first class pornography.

Mamooks Club will be held on

Totem To Immortalize  University Casualties

e    "THE DECEASED ATTENDED the University of B.C."
More, and more, as the democracies of the world move
to thwart the Nazi aggressor, these simple words appear in
the newspapers of this city.
They tell a simple story.
Undergraduates, here at the University, quietly slip from classrooms, graduates leave their jobs,
to swell the ranks of Canada's
fighting foroes.
But those words do not tell the
full story.
This year, with emphasis greater
than ever before upon Preparedness, the 1942 Totem wants to carry
the full meaning of those words
Into the home of every unlveralty
The Totem appeals, therefore, for
student co-operation ln preparing
a survey of graduates and undergraduates who have been killed
while on active service.
Should you know of anyone, who
has attended U.B.O, and has been
killed on active service, you are
asked to inform Lionel Salt, Totem

•    APPARENTLY U.B.C. STUDENTS have definite ideas
as to what should be done with Adolf Hitler1 after bugles
blow "cease fire".
Strangely enough, the suggestions of wmen students
who answered the questions of the two Ubyssey reporters
were the most bloodthirsty.  Suggestions varied widely.

student  opinion:
What punishment would you suggest for Hitler If he was captured
"Kill him as quickly aa poaaible
and get him out of the -way."
HUGHIE DAVIE, Science '42:
"You don't think people will have
a chance  to get near  Hitler after

"Put Hitler ln the British House

his own making."

U.B.C. Expert Presents Mountaineering Advice For Beginners
e THE WIDE OPEN spaces appeal to us all, and
we all don't mean gaposls. For those who are
tired of the Inconveniences of parked cara (Naahes
excluded—Advt.) the alternative of luring her up the
mountain presents itself.
Two major disadvantages, however, oppose
thia crafty plot. The first is the "fear of the mountain" complex, and the aecond la the Inconvenience
of "life ln the wooda."
Por the former point a glib tongue ahould
aufflce, and for the latter a rigid peraual of the fol-
lowQig account ahould prove Invaluable.
Certain fundamental accessories to the crime
will be required. Here they are:
1. The Boots—manhole covera with laces. The
holes In the bottom are to let out the water that flowa
in over the top. The boots ahould be blue (ita more
2. The Pack—a bag slung enticingly over one
shoulder, cave man style. (Two large hip pockets
ahould  aufflce).
3. Water Wings—self explanatory. Uaed for
swimming up the trail which has carelessly wandered into a lake.  (Best bet—blue).
4. Companion—A hot blonde or any other old
bag with a strong back and a weak mind.
5. Mountain Garb—Used only while hiking.
See Esquire, yea, bub, they do ahow clothes there.
Having amasaed the above equipment with
the help of your local pawnbroker; the neophlte
mountaineer will be weU on hla way up the straight
and narrow path (wall narrow anyway—well!). Por
beat reaulta both on and off the path, tha following
poatulatea ahould be committed to memory.
1. Sign anything.
2. Drink water while on the mountain. The
author haa found a pure, healthful, distilled substitute for the mountain aque not ao pura lurking be
hind the  trade  name  of  white  horse.   (This  should
help you up).
3. Take enough blankets.
4. Filibuster.
5. Play with fire—save our virgin,  woods.
6. Hit the trail if there la any Indication of
anow; you might be lured Into going skiing (aee
"Advice to Skiers",  Ubyaaey, Nov. 10,  1940—plug).
7. Take up any food. A scientific fact lt la
that the body can exist Indefinitely on 'Junglejulce'
alone—eh, Moae?
1. Wear blue.
2. Master   the   universal  aign   language.
3. Tell your mother you're juat going up the
mountain with a bunch of the boya. (She would worry if aha thought you were alone).
4. Sprain your ankle a foot from the cabin
door (unless you're a sucker for work).
8. Claim temporary amnesia on return to civilization.
Once the beginner understands the fine points
of this virile week-end sport, there la little need
for further Instruction; he should be ready for tho
hlke. (And we do mean hike—don't go up a mountain acceasable by car, a girl can have a strenuous
car ride anytime).

Soccermen Play Cops
On Campus Wednesday
e    IN THEIR FIRST and only home game before Christmas,
the Varsity soccer eleven will battle City Police for first
place in the Wednesday League tomorrow afternoon at 3:15
on the upper playing field.
Now resting in second place with 5 points, the undefeated Thunderbirs can take over first place from the undefeated Cops who now hold it with 6 points. If they lose, they
will probably slip back to third place and Woodsonias, who
should beat Pro-Recs in the other game of the day at Cambie
Grounds, will take over the second slot.
No   Wonder  They're   Sad
At the beginning of the season,
league followers touted either Cops
or Varsity to take the silverware
this year. Both aquada have rolled
along undefeated and the only time
they played each other the battle
ended ln a draw.
Since then the Blue and Oold
have had a monotonous serlea of
tlea, which haa cauaad them to fall
behind the flatfoota.
Without atudent supporters to
cheer them on, the boya have gradually loat the light they showed at
the beginning of the fall. Now
they've got themaelvea excited a-
gain with the prospect of meeting
the league leadera and perhapa a
few cheers from a few atudent
spectators may turn the trick.
Coach Charlie Hltchens and
Manager Jim McCarthy refuse to
make any predictions, saying, "The
Cops are too good to make any
remarks about."
Nevertheless, it la a fact that the
Police outfit is definitely not anxious to play on the rough campua
Another point, poaalbly In Varaity'a favor will be the return of

•    MAURY VAN VLIET is at it again.
The busy little mentor of men's athletics, physical
training instructor for the C.O.T.C, coach of everything from
Canadian football to golf, has taken on another task.
Disconsolate at the apathy shown by students towards
his intra-mural program, Van Vliet is now hard at work with
the campus Greeks drawing up an extensive inter-fraternity
sports calendar to replace the almost-defunct mural schedule.
Rumoured among the sport activities for the frat men
are: basketball, golf, swimming, cross-counrty and six-man
Then things started to happen.
Anderson and Lucas both soored
field baskets to bring Stacy's up
4 pointa. Wilson waa awarded two
free throws but could only make
one count. Then with two mlnutea
to go Bill Anderson came through
again to make the count 33-31.
Stacy's were pressing the play and
a desperate heave by Ken Lawn
from the oentre of the floor swtah-
ed through the hoop amid groana
of the Varaity supporters.
On the next play Lawn committed his fourth foul on Art Barton
who proceeded to sink the free
shot putting the Birds up one
point 34-33. With only 21 aeoonda
to go Sandy Hay fouled Lucaa who
sunk one of the two and forced the
game into an overtime session.
Bill Anderson started off the extra period with a long ahot but
Sandy Hay soon evened thlnga up
again. Rees and Lucas accounted
for 4 more pointa and a long ahot
by Art Barton brought the count
to 38-40 for Stacy's. Ihe Shoemen
had control of the game now and

through again to make the final
score 40 to 38.

For   Men   Only
e WE HAD a most unusual experience last Armistice Day at
the Vancouver Rep-Varaity Rugby
game that saw the former run
rough-shod over the local lada.
What we enjoyed the moat waa
our half-time Intermission Interview with some 28 Fiji Islanders,
who were guests of the Rugby Association. One of the bunch actually apoke English fluently. He
called hlrraolf Sumla Saumi, or
"Pete" to the boya in New Zealand.
Mr. Saumi had visited New Zealand ln 1939 with an all-Fijian rugger aquad that won 10 out of 11
ball gamea, one a draw. Naturally
enough, theae Fiji natlvea play
bare-footed and run like deer.
The Islanders are working ae seamen on cargo ships from Vancouver to the Southern Pacific. When
not on board ship they are either
farming their plot of land (given
to them by hereditary rights), or
playing rugger, soccer, cricket,
water sports and their traditionally
famous native dart game.
When queried about Canadian
hospitality, "Pete" uttered between
two rows of pearly -white teeth,
"We like you Canadians, but your
climate is too "lillwa" which meana
in Fiji tongue "cold". (Chamber
of Commerce please note).
An Interview with a celebrity
would not have been complete had
we not asked, "What ls your favorite dish?"
From what we could decipher
from 'Pete'a* "yum-yum" description and a few pointers picked up
on the side, "tmrro", a food, and
"cava" the national drink are overwhelming choloes amongst the natlvea.
"Tarro" tastes like starchy potato, while "cava" to the uninitiated
tastes like a compound of aoapy
water and coal oil.
We finally got around to asking
juat what Mr. Saumi and hla atol-
ld-looklng buddies thought of the
rugby match. He smiled and aald,
"Not bad!"
All fo which made lt a very
pleasant Tueaday afternoon.
