NOTE FROM THE WEST
• EDMONTON: Make no mistake about it, there are differences between the East and the
West in Canada. I don't think
that the differences are unsur-
mountable, that they are anything
which more understanding and interchange of constructive ideas
cannot cure, but they are definitely a serious problem in the development of a strong country.
We down East are prone to ignore the West because of the distance which Ilea between us. W*
have a large population and the
West has a small population; the
West U made up chiefly of primary producers and the East derives its wealth from manufacturing.
BAST LIVES OFF WEST
The chief point of dispute between Western Canada and Eastern Canada is that the Westerners
claim that the East has systematically lived off the West Rightly or
wrongly, they claim that our financiers hav* managed  to make
money* out of the West which was
used to th* advantag* of th* I**\
On* of th* chief cries of such
a city as Edmonton Is Its call
far capital to develop its own
aatural resources. It is claimed that Immense wealth - oil
sjsjnarala,  coal,  hydro-electric
pewer la available, if the capital la forthcoming to develop
the industries.
To some extant, tha point of the
Wast U well-taken. She has the
resources, and she has been exploited to some degree at least
by the East. For example, to ship
refrigerated dairy produce east
costs 13.25 a hundred pounds, while
to Ship exactly the same produce
back over the same route, ln a
westerly direction, costs only 93
cents. This gives the eastern producer better than a three to one
chance against the westerner, as
far as transportation is concerned.
WESTERNERS ANNOYED
There may be some good reason why there should be such a
discrepancy  between  snipping
costs In two directions, but the
westerners  don't  think  so,   and
they are annoyed, to put it mildly.
Perhaps it Is ln such feelings
of annoyance and resentment
that we can find the root of
the strength of such parties as
the  Social   Credit   In   Alberta
and the Cooperative Commonwealth  Federation  In  Saskatchewan.
There is, however, unless we can
resolve our differences, the very
real danger of Canada speaking
federally in provincial blocs. This
would mean that each province
would be striving for its own good,
not for the good of the whole
country. There'must be a way to
clear up our problems, with fairness to all partus, If the good of
the whole of Canada is to be
served.

from her dainty neck.
Her accessories included elbow-

Mr. Bewell Smokes a Long Stem Monster
GREAT THINKERS PREFER
PIPES
By BRUCE BEWELL
• TN OUR MODERN civilization,
most men smoke tobacco in
one form or another. The majority smoke cigarettes, probably because they are most convenient
and besides that was what they
were offered. Some tycoons and
people near recent fathers smoke
cigars. However, great thinkers,
freshmen, and Mammy Yokum
prefer to smoke pipes.
Pipe smoking is not an art that
can be picked up at a moments
notice like cigarette smoking, or
even after weeks of practice like
cigar smoking. To become a true
pipe smoker requires months or
even years of careful study.
COMMIT SACRILEGE
While some people fondly
imagine themselves to be keepers
of the flame at the altar of My
Lady Nicotine, they commit the
sacrilege of burning a very low
grade of hay in a third rate refugee from an incinerator. Smoking
comsilk in a two-bit briar is like
dressing for the Aggie Barn Dance
and then attending the Red Cross
Ball. It is just such people that
give discriminating pipe smokers
a bad name.
One of the first things that the
neophyte must remember is that
pipe smoking must be regarded
as an almost sacred ceremony. It
cannot be rushed. While it may
be all right for some lowly cigarette fiend to rush into a store, flip
thirty-three cents on the counter,
pant,   "Gimme  a  pack   of   Sweet
Caps, please," and rush out again,
suclj tactics are not for the man
who smokes a pipe.
Every step the pipe smoker takes
must be taken with due deliberation. Before he buys his pipe he
must carefully consider the merits
of the brands offered for his approval. He must be able to discuss intelligently Ihe relative merits of the Flame-Grain Carburettor
Kaywoodie with Synchro-mesh
stem and the genuine air-conditioned Klrsten.
FAMOUS FOR CARE
Pipe smokers are famous for the
meticulous care taken in the selection of their tobacco. It is only
after years of constant experimenting that the smoker finds "his
brand." The experienced pipe devotee is recognized by the large
number of half filled packages of
tobacco lying around his smoking
room. If more than half of these
remnants are brands no longer obtainable, here indeed is a man
qualified to give advice. Furthermore, if he has a collection of
pipes that covers one wall of his
room he is qualified to give courses and grant degrees.
The true art of the pipe smoker

Room, Brock Hall.
manifests itself in the filling of
the pipe. Here experience alone
counts. When the ambitious young
man can consistently fill his pipe
with one hand, light it with one
match, and smoke it to the bottom
with one continuous glow, he is
qualified to give up his conservative billiard style.bowl and sally
forth with the most bizarre examples of the pipe-makers' handicraft that he can buy, Including
calabashes and jobs with eight
inch stems.
Manitoba Coeds

Control of Social Functions
Waste of money at the recent junior
and senior class party serves as a good example of the need for a competent, experienced executive for the planning of all
social functions. The students who arranged
for last Thursday's party need not be blamed entirely for the loss. They were inexperienced. Perhaps there should have been
a better check on the arrangements from
those higher up.
But whatever the reasons this time, it
still can be attributed to the old student
fault of lack of experience. The Commodore
management was guaranteed an attendance
of 500, and a little over 300 attended. It
was a mistake in estimation. The committee
did not understand how hard it is to get
students to attend an informal, unless there
are plenty of extra attractions.
There could have been more publicity,
both In the paper and through other mediums. The important fact to remember about
publicity, however, is that if you have only
an ordinary affair to advertise you are better
off with not too much publicity. Unless .you
have some good attraction to draw a crowd
you shouldn't be too noisy. Students were
sufficiently informed of Thursday's party
to attract those who wanted to go to an
informal.
Publicity, however, goes along with the
attributes of those who know how to stage
big parties.. We should have some central
body to put on, or control, all functions.
This body would understand publicity, catering estimates, ticket distribution, and the
other details of a university function.
Disgrace to Education
It was an appropriate commentary on
present day. education which appeared in
our Saturday issue. On one page was the
ideal of education, according to Rt. Hon.
Malcolm MacDonald's experience at Oxford.
On another page was the sordid story of
education as practised at William and Mary
College of Virginia where students were
censured for discussing the equal rights of
negroes and whites.
Mr. MacDonald argued that the task of
education was to civilize youth, to transform
them into well-balanced, rational individuals
with open minds. He advanced the right of
all men to discuss all topics without fear of
retribution.
The situation at William and Mary College, as reported in these columns and newspapers all over the North American continent is a disgrace to education.
It is a disgrace, however, which William
and Mary College cannot share alone. Racial
prejudice and the lack of academic freedom
exists everywhere. They seep into the best
of universities.
Students'must combat these two menaces wherever they are found. We think
there is no student who doesn't realize the
evil influence they have over the minds of
man. All that remains for us is to resolve
to end it. Soon there will be enough of us
in the world to out talk the uncivilized.
The ISS Drive Begins
This week an appeal will be made to
students of this University for support of
the International Student Service movement. It is one of the best war charities to
which students could subscribe.
Monies collected here, and at universities all over the world, buy textbooks and
other supplies for prisoners of war to continue their education in prison camps of the
Axis.
Each student should give just as much
as he feels he can spare at this time, but
each student should give something. It
doesn't matter how small the contribution
is; it can be used. A lot of little contributions add up to a big total when put together.
Let us do as much as we can to aid
those students who were less fortunate than
ourselves, those who left for the battlefield
in order that we might remain at home to
continue our education.
• in all seriousness   By denb blunden
• IF THERE is any feature of contemporary life which is so outstanding as to rate
a mention in the Ubyssey, it is the fact that
women are fast replacing the dog as man's
best friend.
I see it is time, however,
to remove the tongue from
the left cheek, put it in the
right cheek, and write upon
the subject of women seriously, lest Miss Dundas
have another attack of apoplexy like she suffered in her
famous last words Thursday.
One of the main points
to be considered when discussing women is that, for
better or for worse, they are always with us,
and unless some scientist is successful in
producing the next generation in a heat-resistant test-tube, they always will be with
us.
(I for one, would object strenuously
were some scientist to discover how to produce future generations in a test-tube, since
to replace women with a cold, glass test-tube
would be the height of folly, even for a hard
working scientist.)
Behind almost every scene in life, a
woman is to be found somewhere. Our lives
are influenced, guided, and in some cases
even shaped by the hand of a woman. That
we have so far succeeded in bringing the
world almost to the brink of disaster may be
attributed in part to' the influence of the
feminine sex. Those women who blare forth
to all the world that Women should "take
over" are unaware that women have had a
big hand in affairs since Adam.
If women would but come out into
the open in their use of propaganda instead
of using psychological warfare over the
"breakfast table, then everyone would know
precisely what it is they want. But they go
about attaining their objective, be it a new
fur coat or a non-aggression pact with Tanganyika, with under-cover methods that
would put to shame the most eminent of
our present day psychologists. The result is
that the world is at war of a sudden one
morning because millions of wives complained over the dinner table for months that
tiie quality of Tanganiyka Corn was slipping.
For this sly participation in world
events, women are to be chastised. The
world would be in a better position today
if women had participated openly in deciding affairs. This behind the scenes coquet-
try has led to business depressions, wars,
and all manner of degrading events.
The question of women in business has
been debated with sufficient facetiousness to
satisfy even the most disinterested reader,
so I leave the final statement to the philosopher and genius W. M. Thackeray, who
wrote:
"... and could you see every man's
career in life, you would find a woman clogging him; or clinging round his march and
stopping him; or' cheering him and goading
him; or beckoning him out of her chariot,
so that he goes up to her, and leaves the
race to be run without him; or bringing him
the arjple and saying "Eat"; or fetching him
the daggers and whispering "Kill! yonder
lies Duncan, and a crown, and an opportunity."
Hasten Cleopatra with the Hemlock tea.
This is probably my last regular column for
this year and I wish to expire quickly lest I
be alive on examination week.
Intake of Protein    Regenerates Blood
• LINCOLN, Neb. (UP)-Women blood donors regenerate
blood more rapidly when given
a generous intake of protein, Dr.
Ruth Leverton, home economics
department of the University of
Nebraska college of agriculture,
reported to the American Dietetic
Association.
Dr. Leverton conducted a study
last year at the university with 30
women students, who acted as
blood donors and received a care-
fully balanced diet. Blood values
measured weekly indicated those
girls who were given 75 grams of
protein a day regenerated blood
much more rapidly than those receiving the usual intake of 50
grams.

That twist and wind nlgbtmarishly;
The  endless, leaning palms, the
aftermaths
Of monsoon storms, the rotting
husks,
The native-stench, the electric air
That sucks lungs dry, the fust
And slime  of  undergrowth,  the
lair
Of vicious life
That bites and sung* and crawls
Persistently.
So sick will be
My heart within my aching breast.
And then, in dreary moments,
wall meetl
—My face will turn towards the
west.
Like cooling, soothing ice ln desert's heat,
The clamouring mem'rles rise!
Those memories which by you
were blessed.
Well think of that December's
end—.
Too many lonely years have
passed,
A. SMITH
Too many far-flung wars, to rend
Us irom our homes.  But now at
last,
Fate exchanged the hidden isles
For busy streets—The  thronging
scene,
And seething traffic's1 roar,  the
miles
Of lights, red, blue, and green
Bridged the sky.
In church's spire and holly's i
The echo of a chanting choir,
In the smiling faces that hav*
been
Imprinted in our hearts; in Yule-
log fire,
And parcels gaily-wrapped; In
sherry-wine,
And turkey's tasty flesh; in evening frocks,
In perfume, parties, and lamplit
pine,
We saw our Christmas live!
Naw faces daily, people young in
heart
And gay »s> spring; sometimes tan
Or twelve of us, would start
The day, dance till midnight, and
then
Gather in by the leaping flames.
The hours would softly, sleepily
go,
Heads together,  or  party-gam**,
Or dancing to the radio.
Sleep seemed a wanton waste,
And moments too fleet   We too
regret
That the days went by with such
a haste.
We will not forget
Those1 happy hours.   Come •rial
and pain
And toil and heat and strife,
Those memories will rise again
To bring us peace, as we remember you.

LIMITED BIRDS SNATCH TITLE OPENER
Win Tisdall Trophy As UBC Loses
VARSITY XV COPS THIRD CUP
By FRED CROMBIE
•   COMING FROM behind to tie the score in the closing minutes of the game, Varsity
- battled to a 3-3 draw with Vancouver Rowing Club, to win the Tisdall Cup at Brockton,
Point on Saturday.   In the opening tilt, Ex-Britannia upset UBC 12-11 with a last-second
penalty kick.
THE UBYSSEY, FEBRUARY 27, 1945 — Page Four
LUKE MOYLS, Sports Editor
the gospel
according to
LUKE MOYLS
• THIS IS one of those years for
collecting silverware at UBC.
Already the Blue and Gold athletes have tucked four trophies
under their belts, and the Thunderbirds show promise of sdding
another one or two to tho coffers.
The English
^ rugby boys
started it off
last December
when they
cinched the
Miller Cup at
an early date.
And it's the
same Punters
that are : still
going strong.
Having captured three trophies, the Thunderbirds won't be
satisfied until they get another one
or two.
Last week the Varsity XV copped
their second cup of the season,
the rrizod McKechnie Cup, when
they defeated the Crimson Tide
of Victoria. Last Saturday, the
Blue and Gold rugger boys didn't
take another victory, but they did
cinch the Tisdall Cup.
Then there were those lowly
Thunderbugs, youngest team on
the campus. All of Intermediate
B age (under 18), they fought on
to victory in thc Inter B loop to
walk off with the Memorial Cup,
first hoopla cup on the cainpu3
for two years.
However, there are hopes that
there will be another two or tliree
basketball trophies adorning t.ie
silverware case ln the library
within the next week. The Inter
A Chiefs will be out with everything they've got to take the Inter A trophy of the V. and D.
league when they meet Higbies in
the final game of their Campion-
ship series tonight.
Then, of course, there are the
Thunderbirds. From the looks of
their raoe-horse start on Saturday
night, the 'Birds look like a cinch
for the City Championship in the
Senior A brackets, and this
means they take the Provincial
cup, too, since the Pat Bay Gremlins are ineligible for championship competition.
As I said before, this is one of
those years for collecting silverware at UBC.

with an injured foot these days,
and the Varsity punters really miss

Detroit Cinches
Second With 2
Decisive Wins
O DETROIT RED Wings assured
themselves of the second-place
honors in the current National
Hockey League, when they copped
two decisive victories over the
lowly Chicago Black Hawks. The
Red Wings beat the Chihawks on
home ice Saturday night by a
score of 4-2 and then travelled to
Chicago to take an easy 3-1 win
on Sunday.
Meanwhile the New York Rangers battled their way towards that
last playoff spot. The Manhattans
moved to within one point of the
Boston Bruins Saturday night
when they came from behind to
tic the Toronto Maple leafs 4-4.
HUNT SCORES TWO
Back on home ice Sunday, the
Rangers fought out another 4-4
draw with the Boston Bruins. In
the other NHL game of the weekend, the Montreal Canadiens took
a 5-2 victory over the slipping
Toronto Maple Leafs.
Paced by Freddy Hunt, the
New York Rangers scored two
goals In the last four minutes
of the game to secure a tie
with the Toronto Maple Leafs.
The highlight in the Montreal-
Toronto game came at the seventeen minute mark of the final canto, when Maurice Richard scored
his 45th goal of the season to break
his tie with the all-time record.
A crowd of fourteen thousand
in the Montreal Forum gave the
hometown boy a great hand when
ho potted his record-breaking goal.
The game was held up for ten
minutes while the rink attendants
cleared the ice of programmes and
anything else the crowd could ftnu
to throw.
Varsity Swimmers
Meet On Thursday
• VARSITY'S   Swimming   Club
holds its regular  meeting on
Thursday at the Crystal Pool from
5:30 on. All aquatic fans are urged to get out and make the meet
a success.
Just in case there are girls who
have led swimmers astray, Inducing them to go to the Coed Dance,
the men are reminded that they
still have time for a swim.
It's the ideal substitute for a
Saturday night bath. (Don't forget to bring your Lifebouy.)
Since this will be one of the last
meetings of the year, all swimmers
should turn out. The coach will
be around to give out swimming
tips from 5:30 to 7:30.
Before a meager crowd of Rugger enthusiasts, Varsity copped the
Tisdall Cup when Cam Coady
whipped over for a try after a
beautiful run down the north sideline, just two minutes before the
end of the match. The tie gave
the Students the necessary point to
cinch the trophy.
STRONG DEFENCE
The Rowers jumped into an
early lead as veteran place-kicking
star, Jack Wight, kicked one on
the nose to give them a 3-0 edge
which they held until the end of
the half. Varsity's threes, who were
travelling] in high gear all afternoon, tried vainly to tie the score
but the persistence of Rowing
Club's defence rendered the Blue
and Gold helpless.
However, on two or three occasions the Vanity boys actually scored but were called
back by referee Prank Burn-
ham. On one of these plays,
Tom McCusker, high-scoring
wing three-quarter, made a
sensational dash to try territory
but It didn't suit the particular
Bumham.
Varsity showed a definite edge in
play but instead of playing tha
ball, the cagey Rowers played the
man and stopped the fast-moving
Student threes cold in their tracks.
The Blue and Gold finally found
an opening and Cam Coady scored
his game-winning try.
MOYLS TALLIES
For Varsity, Johnny Wheeler,
Ted Taylor, and Bob Lawson played torrid rugby. Taylor travelled
at top speed in starting most of
the plays for the threes, while
Lawson and Johnny Wheeler kept
breaking fast from the confines of
the scrum.
Maury   Moyls   opened   tha
scoring for UBC, plunging over
from about fifteen yards out, to
give his mates a 3-0 margin
over Ex-Britannia.
When Harry Kabush kicked a
penalty kick a few minutes later to
give UBC a 6-0 lead, it looked ss
if the Evits would be completely
routed.        '       .
UBC FENCED IN
But Norm Blake came back for
the Green and Red, to narrow the
margin on a fine try from close in.
Ex-Britannia battled on nearly even
terms with the Blue and Gold until
the end of the half except when
Kabush plunged over and Keith
MacDonald converted.
During most of the second
half, the Brits penned UBC in
their own territory while they
racked up a total of nine points
on penalty kicks, the last coming thirty seconds before the
final whistle.   These were all
made good by their dependable
scrum half, Dave Menries.
Len Mitten, who set up the plays
for  both  UBC   scores,   played   a
magnificent game and was one of
the   outstanding   players   of   the
afternoon.   He was greatly aided
by his superb five-eighths, Maury
Moyls.   Keith MacDonald showed
that he is Anally hitting his stride
after his injury and was a thorn
in the sides of the Ex-Brits throughout the contest.
FINAL INTER A
BATTLE SLATED
TONIGHT AT 8
• ONE OF THE fiercest hoopla
battles of the season is on tap
tonight when the UBC Chiefs
tangle with Higbies ln the fifth and
final game of the Intermediate A
Championship series. Game time is
8 oclock and the place is King Ed
Gym.
Although the Higbie crew took
an advantage by winning the first,
and then the third, going ahead
twice in the thrilling series, the
Chiefs held on by coming back hi
the second and fourth tilts to knot
the series twice.
Tonight's battle will be a do-or-
dle battle for both squads, and
with all ten players fighting their
hardest, It should be the battle of
the year.

U. S. CAGE TOURNEY
SLATED NEXT WEEK
It's ISS Week!
• NEW YORK,-(BUP)-The
field for the Madison Square
Garden Invitational Basketball
Tournament has been cut to 20
teams. Eight teams will be invited to participate in the meet,
which gets under way early in
March. Dr. Richard Boyce of the
committee says 12 schools have
been eliminated.
The teems still under consideration include: Saint Johns, last
year's champion; New York University, De Paul, Temple. City
College of New York, Valparaiso,
Bowling Green, Tenessee, Kentucky, Muhlenberg, Renssaeler,
Albright, Utah, West Virginia,
Duke, Notre Dame, Penn State,
Pittsburgh, Rhode Island and
South Carolina.
Collegiate basketball — with
the exception of Invitational
tourneys—is just about ready
to call it a season after this
week. In the Southern Conference North Carolina defeated
Duke Saturday night 49-38 to
win the Annual Conference
Tourney.
Rice University clinched the
Southwest title with 12 straight
wins. Arkansas — second in loop
standings with a nine-three mark-
will represent the Southwest loop
in the NACA Western Tournament in Kansas City. Naval trainee players will prevent Rice from
entering the meet.
TIGHT RACE
The Pacific Coast Northern loop
race is still on, but UCLA has already locked up the Southern half.
Oregon, Oregon State and Washington   State   are   staging  a   dog
flght for the Northern title.
Kansas—with seven wins ln
nine  starts—leads  in  the  Big
Six race but may find itself In
a deadlock with Iowa State If
the Cyclones can trim Kansas
State tonight.
Utah—National Collegiate Athletic Association title-holders —
have clinched the Big Seven
Crown with seven wins without a
loss.
Depaul is tops among the Mid
west Independent teams—boasting
of 18 wins in 20 starts. Great Lakes
Naval stands out among the Service teams with 32 wins in 37
games.
In the Big Ten loop, Iowa can
clinch the title by winning its two
remaining games against Minnesota and Illinois. One win would
give the Hawkeyes a tie with Ohio,
which has finished season's play.
Soccer Team Ties
Nanaimo XI, 5-5
• VARSITY SOCCER XI took a
hop over to Nanaimo Sunday
to show the coalminers how the
game should be played, and the
Varsity club had it all over tho
Island team in the first half and
were leading 2-1 on goals by Don
Petrie, a penalty shot, and Dave
Bremner. Jimmy Rice tallied for
Nanaimo.
In the second half, the UBC
youngsters began to feel the effects
of the league game the day before.
Nanaimo came back strong, scoring twice, and PaJ Campbell finished the scoring with Varsity's tying
goal.
The boys showed a new spirit on
Sunday and treated the Nanaimo
fans to the best soccer game of the
season. Trips, it seems, raise the
morale of the players, and the
weary but happy boys had a successful week-end.
Drub Pie-Rates
In First Battle
Of City Finals
By LAURIE DYER
•   VARSITY'S Thunderbirds took
the first step towards the City
championship Saturday night when
they took the measure of a crew
of Lauries Pie-Rates by a M-46
margin at the Varsity gym.
Varsity was not going to waste
any time about taking the Pirates
either, as they started in right
from the opening whistle to work
on the slow defence of Lauries
quintet.
Their fast plays and passing attack got the 'Birds off to a flying
start as they completely disorganized the Piemen, winding up with
a 19-4 bulge at the end of the first
canto.
TOUGH DEFENCE
The Pirate squad netted their
four points from the free shot line,
too, which shows just how tight
the 'Birds defence was.
Deciding that they couldn't
get through tha Students' da-
fence, the Pirates decided to
try their luck from outside the
barbed wire which the 'Birds
had thrown up around the kse*.
Getting their long shots up, the
Laurie crew managed to hit the
mesh for 13 counters.  The Blue
and Gold kept their offence working to roll up 13 also.
ROBERTSON NETS 29
Both teams kept fairly even
throughout the last half although
the 'Birds managed to get the better of the Piemen by netting an
additional two-point lead in each
of the last two quarters.
No one was particularly hat
for either team until Sandy
Robertson came to the fore ia
the last half. The starry Bird-
man swished three baskets In
the third and five In the final
canto, ending up with 29 markers.
Ron Weber was next in line for
scoring honors for the Students,
netting 13 while freshman Reg
Clarkson had 12.
The 'Birds led 66-40 at one time
in the last quarter before the Pie-
Rate crew collected another six
points to end the tilt with a 66-46
score. Piemen Lawn and Anderson each had 10 points.
The second in the best-of-five
series is coming up tomorrow night
at King Ed with the third game
slated for Saturday at Varsity.
Game time is 8 o'clock Wednesday
night.
