The football season ls over. The
champions are being crowned and
feted, and In the wake of week-end
trips and cheer-leaders and hot dogs,
the annual college dramatic, musical
and generally nonsensical presentations are getting under way. As we go
to press, Toronto's University College
Follies are a thing of the past—original music and political satire and
beautiful chorus girls and all. McOlll
ls the soene of a mad search for
dancing ladles for the Red and White
Revue. Manitoba is waiting for "You
Oan't Beat Fun" and organizing a
seventy-two piece orchestra on the
side. Music and drama predominate
from now until term exams (OoohI)
and Just to supply a bit of art to the
cultural diet, the omnipresent freshman scribbles on the college wall:
"Marie loves Butch." Maybe she does.
Bxohango departments of our oollege Journals stand ln receipt of a
unique student publication whioh
hails from England—a college newspaper ' to replace all college news-
papers, for all oollege newspapers are
wiped out by evacuation, blackout,
enlistment and other strictly non-
academic emergency measures. Student News la the name of the pubU-
oatlon, and in typically Bnglish style,
it presents an open forum on practically everything. War for what?
asks their leading feature. And the
question.la answered by a Conservative, a Liberal,' a Socialist and a pacifist. No one pointa the finger of
scorn at "subversive" tendencies:
groping through the blackout towards
a better world, the student "Somewhere ln England" still exercises
freedom of thought, freedom of expression and freedom of the press.
And for those who are interested,
the flag carries the information that
Student News Is published by the
N.U.8. in collaboration with the
B.U.L.N.S., A.S.A., I.S.8., F.U.C.U.A.,
U.LF., U.U.L.S. . . . How true!
Like lt or no, Miss Hawkins' unattractive physiognomy floats like a
wraith through all the campus news.
Two weeks ago the authorities at the
University of Alberta officially frowned upon Sadie Hawkins Week and
declared that anyone entering into
the spirit of said week would be similarly frowned upon. "Frown away,"
shouted Alberta co-eds and the week
went on as planned: theatre parties,
tuck shop treats, dances, and it is
finally the woman who pays and pays
and pays—and enjoys lt. Of course,
telling any girl that "Thou must not
covet thy neighbour's boy-friend" is
obviously weak tactics.
More about Sadie—and still from
Alberta. A few of the aggressive girls
have developed a new technique.
When the man of their dreams ls
seated in the library—at work—they
march up to him and state their
case. When he is adamant in the pursuit of knowledge, they seize his
books and make off with them. When
he comes after his books, they lure
him to the Tuck Shop and fill his
stomach with whatever his little
heart (thus reached) desires. When
he is satiated, they carry his books
and see him back to the library. The
poor man!
At last the mystery has been solved.
Since the merry month of March,
students at the University of Toronto
have been wondering why the Hart
House tower clock has stopped striking the hour. Certainly the hour wasn't that sensitive. It was all so weird
and cryptic—during the winter the
clock had struck one hundred and
forty-seven times in succession, then
it stopped. It has not been heard
from since.
But the explanation has come. The
clock will strike, but, once started,
lt will not stop, something like your
maiden aunt. There are some parts
missing, and the clock was made ln
England; ergo, we must send to England for the parts. But they are having a bit of a situation across the
puddle, so the parts remain there,
the clock remains here, and the students remain In doubt. For the dur-

European Union
Possible, Says
TORONTO, Nov. -3 (O.U.P.)—Hope
that victory for the Allies ln war will
lead to a new territorial settlement ln
central Europe and formation of a
new Danubian federacy was voiced
by His Imperial Highness Archduke
Felix of Austria, in a Student Christian Movement address at the University of Toronto today.
"The war will surely be won by the
Allies, there ls no other possibility,"
he said. "And while there is Uttle
possibility that the United States of
Europe will materialize for some time,
a Danubian confederation comprising
Czechoslovakia, Austria and Hungary
should be created following the victory."
Younger brother of Archduke Otto
von Hapsburg, present pretender to
the throne, and third son of the late
Emperor Charles I., Archduke Felix
saw signs of lasting peace which
would combine these states In an economic or political federation. Suoh a
union would differ from the former
Austrl-Hungarian Empire in that it
would be "more democratic" and
"much less centralized."
"To be a real union It muat be
engineered by the people themselves
and not Imposed by a victor," warned the Archduke.
The rule also would be chosen by
the people, he said, adding that Austria and Hungary are both strongly
monarchists, and that Hungarians
are no longer against the Hapsburgs.
Describing his proposal as a bulwark against pan-Oermanism and
communism, he indicated that It
would bring security to the Danubian
basin. "But each country must preserve its own rights and Ideals and
no country must be allowed to dominate," he said.
Pub Crushes
Dirty Nine
Foul Play
Council Carried Out
In Shame After
A smooth, fast, clean Publications
fighting machine steamrollered down
the gymnasium floor Wednesday noon
to completely crush the Inefficient
Council defense by  a score of 76-4.
Below Is a play by play description
of the fracas:
After the kick-off, Salt skidded
down the floor, passed to Watt who
was tripped by Harmer. Durkin came
in with a left to the Jaw and a wild
haymaker which missed. There was
a scrimmage on the forward line and
a trick play by . Pearson who batted
the ball out to centre field for a two
base hit. Campbell converted and
whipped the puck to Oarrett who slid
through the puny council defense for
the 62nd basket.
The referee stopped the fight at
this Juncture for half time. The second half was a reasonably accurate
facsimile of the first. A total of 227
fouls were called on the counoil for
using Canadian football tactics. Only
one foul was called on the Pub when
McTavlsh attempted to tear off apRoberts' costume.
The counoil members who were
taken off on stretchers are still recuperating In the grotto of the Dirty

that the move was taken because it
was felt that Premier Mussolini of

New Players
re Hit
In Preview
"Orchids to the Players' Club," is
the comment of enthusiastic student
audiences who have witnessed two of
this week's four performances of
Christmas plays by members of the
University's oldest club.
In her Introductory remarks, Ruth
Heyer, vice-president of the club,
asked students to receive sympathetically the experimental attempts of
the players, many of whom are acting
for the first time on the University
stage. Miss Heyer need have no fears
as to their favorable reception. All
observations heard by this reporter
have highly complimented the quality of acting, directing, costumes and
Presentation of the Senate Scene
from "Othello" highlighted the program. Directed by Mrs. Goodwin Gibson, the well-chosen cast brilliantly
executed Shakespeare's masterpiece.
Olub President, Jamas Frazee, as the
Moor, portrayed the Important role
with fitting dignity and grace.
Special mention should go to Lister
Sinclair's characterization of the villain Iago. Made-up In a striking resemblance of Hitler, he tactfully
gained the audience's attention at a
point when it was waning slightly.
Robert Menchlons, as the pawn Rod-
erigo, supplied humor to the otherwise very solemn scene.
Challenging "Othello" for top honours on the program was the traglo
melodrama, "Mother of Judas". Set
In the living room of a oountry inn
in southern Spain, on the night ol
Holy Thursday, lt depicted the anguish of a mother who dared to caU
her son "Judas" when he betrayed a
11 lend.
In our opinion the finest female
performance on the program, the
character of the mother played by
Mary McLorg, brought tears to the
eyes of more than one co-ed ln the
audience. William Knox's portrayal
of the outcast son, Felipe, rates second in the list of characterizations In
this play.
Atmosphere created  by  the use of
scenery greatly enhanced this excellent  two-scene   tragedy,   directed   hy
Sidney Risk.
A Mexican folk play, "The Red Velvet Ooat," produced the intended riot
of laughter. incUned towards being
slap-stick, the comedy of the simple
Esteban's family dramatics to an appreciative peasant gathering stood
out in clear contrast to the above-
mentioned plays. Outstanding here
was the acting of petit John En-
wrlght, as Esteban, the self-styled
country playwright.
Nora Lyall's portrayal of Mariana,
Esteban's wife, was, in our opinion,

Last on the scale was the modern
production "The Last Mrs. Blakley"

OTTAWA, Monday, Nov. 20, 1839.—
A picture that Is exciting, disturbing,
and significant is "The Lion Has
Wings", British-produced propaganda
film describing the Air Defense of
Here ls the flrst clearly recognizable, officially- sponsored example of
direct propaganda. Aa such, it ts
highly successful. Alexander Korda ia
producer; three directors have collaborated; Ralph Richardson and
Merle Oberon head a crowded and
competent cast; and the Air Ministry
has supplied actual, authentic, and
exciting material.
The attack on Kiel Canal, skilfully
synthesized from actual film records
and dramatic reconstruction, is the
real crux of the film. The main theme
ls an analysis of air defenae, directed
from the famous Fighter Control station 'somewhere In England', where
observation, tactical, and A.R.P. staffs
maintain a complete survey of airfields over England and the North
The film Is in three parts. First is
a contrast between British and German ways of life during the past few
years. This, compiled from newsreels
and actuality shots, ls a terse and
pointed outline ln the English Documentary manner. Next is a survey of
munitions production: casting, forging, shining bullets in endless parade,
aircraft construction. Finally, there
is the Incidental story, a man and
his wife playing their part in defense, which is incorporated In the
frequences of the Kiel raid, the work
of Fighter Control, and the repulse
of three concurrent night raids from
over the North Sea.
As a motion picture, this is an
oddity. The documentary method,
familiar through the march of
Time' series, ls smooth, rapid, and
effective. A quiet English voice comments briefly, factually, whUe the
shining bullets file past, the sleek
bombers cross a dark sky. The story
element enters now and then, naturally and easily, then the documentary account continues.
The Kiel raid, though, is the high
point of interest. We see instructions
given, crews taking plaoe, the takeoff, flight over the sea, the canal and
harbor; the attack, the flght, and the
successful return. Smooth camera
work within the massive Wellington
bombers shows ua the position and
function of each man in their crew
ol Ave. We see how orders from
Fighter Control are received, poaltlon
Is plotted, formation taken up, and
the attaok made. Tremendously gripping ls the moment when the gloved
finger pushes the release button, the
case opens, the bomb gleams and
drops and plummets downward.
You may distrust this picture at
first, with its sharp use of contrast
and its uncompromising statement.
But it will surprise you, and convince
you, and thrill you.
■   Waive Two Dollars
Of Caution Money
In A.M.S. Meeting
More than a thousand students
filled the Auditorium on Tuesday
noon, and unanimously ratified the
Students' Counoil plan to make a
financial contribution ln the name of
the Alma Mater Society to the Red
Cross War Chest Oampaign.
No dissenting voice was heard, aa
students, falling In line with other
major Canadian universities, supported the campaign and rushed to
make   Individual   contributiona   by
signing  away  two dollars of their
returnable caution money.
A. M.  8.  President John Pearson
briefly outlined the work of the Canadian Red Cross ln peace and war.
"In times like these, the StudenU'
Council feels that some definite student contribution should be made,"
he said. "There were three possible
methods of contribution," he stated:
"By holding University functions in
support of the movement, by direct
contribution, or by signing caution
money waivers."
John Oarrett, in moving that a contribution be made by signing away
two doUars of returnable caution
money, gave lt as his opinion that
the method, which had been used tn
previous campaigns, was the moat
convenient, and would be most successful.
He also stated that while the University would derive considerable favorable publicity from tho oampaign,
the students must keep ln mind tho
fact that the purpose of the movement waa to aid Canada during tlmo
of war.
"If we are going into this thing
with the idea of gaining pubUclty,
then I say drop the whole Idea," he
The motion gained the enthusiastic
approval of students, many of whom
rose to speak In its favor.
In presenting waivers to the assembly for signature. John Pearson
-tressed the fact that no attempt was
being made to railroad the plan
through. In view of Ubyssey headlines and campus opinion, he said,
the Council had felt safe ln going
ahead and having the waivers print-

Following is a letter taken from the columns of the Toronto
"Varsity." It sets forth in precise manner many ideas eoneerning
the forthcoming N.F.C.U.S. and C.S.A. Conferences In December,
both of whieh are of considerable interest to students.
About N.F.C.U.S.
This open letter is based on three eonvietions t
(1) That neither the National Federation of Canadian University Students nor the Canadian Student Assembly have ever
done as much as they were designed to do; (2) that what they have
done was not done as efficiently as possible; (3) that a few changes
in the constitutional regulations of both bodies would enable them
to provide Canadian university students in all provinces with an
increasing number of valuable services.
Therefore, the general program outlined in the following propositions is recommended to both the N.F.C.U.S. and the C.S.A.
(a) Re. Their Co-ordination;
(1) That the two executives remain autonomous.
(2) That on the national and local executives of both organizations each should have a plenipotentiary voice but no vote.
(b) Re. The C.U.P.:
(3) That all Canadian University Press executives be regularly and promptly supplied with full detailed Information regarding the Constitution, Personnel, Finances, Program and Transactions of the national and local executives of both organizations.
(4) That in the interests of a completely free press the Canadian University Press be financed direct by the local Students'
Administrative Council, independently of its parent organization,
the N.F.C.U.S.
(c) Re. N.F.C.U.S. Proper: .
(5) That the N.F.C.U.S. be maintained as a purely administrative organization with a central offlce and a responsible, salaried
(6) That the executive work of the local N.F.C.U.S. representatives be co-ordinated more economically and efficiently by a
system of annual regional conferences and triennial national con-
(7) That the financial commitments of the universities constituting the N.F.C.U.S. should in no case be binding for more than
one year, and should be reconsidered at a regional conference by
the Incoming representatives as soon as possible  after assuming
office. .
(8) That a regional executive be elected at each regional conference from the active representatives.
(9) That full duplicates of the files nt the N.F.C.U.S. central
offlce be made available at every Students' Administrative Council
offlce for the use of the local N.F.C.U.S. representative and the editor of the undergraduate newspaper.
So far as the N.F.C.U.S. Is concerned, I believe thot the proposed principles, rigidly enforced by the local Students' Administrative Councils, would ensure an efficient and responsible ogency
for the administration of such services as the following:
(1) The stimulation nnd co-ordination of Inter-university
student activities:
(a) Drama festivals.
(b) Debates ond travelling lectureships.
(c) Exchange scholarships.
(d) Tours, regionnl and International; youth hostelling, etc.
(e) Student co-operative enterprises.
(f) Publications: e.g. A directory of the student Interest-
groups of oil Cnnadlon universities, publication and distribution of
all significant Canadian Student Assembly Commission Reports.
(2) The co-ordination of Canadian university employment
(a) Nation-wide registration of qualified university-trained
candidates for various types of employment.
(b) Registration of prospective employers ond their criteria
of selection, I.e. A two-way service to include every form of constructive activity from business to post-graduate research.
These proposals are quite feasible, given nn efficient central
office.    It is the task of the local representatives :
(a) to criticize the administration and to change it wherever
(b) to extend its functions as they see flt (e.g. nt the suggestion of the C.S.A.) given the authority of their respective Students' Administrative Councils to which they are always responsible.
. . . And the C.S.A.
(See University of Toronto Students' Handbook, p. 60.)
Tn co-operation with tho Canadian University Press, the N.F.
C.U.S., and the local Students' Administrative Councils, the Canadian Student Assembly is Resigned to promote inter-university
activities and to give student opinion in Canada notion-wide expression.
The functions of the Student Assembly ore distinct from those
of the S.A.C., the C.U.P. and the N.F.C.U.S., which nre essentially
administrative bodies.    Its main aims are:
(1) To co-ordinate the activities of special interest groups on
each campus through n local student assembly;
(2) To promote inter-university relations by organizing regional conferences nt two-year intervals, and n nntionnl conference
un alternate years;
(3) To promote needed reforms, e.g., in curricula, by setting
vip -commissions to investigate specific problems and to present reports for submission to the proper authorities.
T.ocol Assemblies will hold open sessions twice during the academic yonr, where matters of general interest will be discussed ond
reports of student research committees will be presented.
All undergraduates (both sexes) ore eligible to attend the
open sessions of the Toronto Assembly nnd to serve upon commissions nnd research committees.

Paul McOIIlIcuddy Is the N.F.C.U.S. Representative at the University
*>t Toronto.
Certain membera of certain clubs on this Campus have been
crying out about the injustice of the Press, and the unfairness of
some of the columnists of the Ubyssey. Their complaints are by
no means without good cause, and their chance to speak their
piece is practically nonexistent.
The reference is chiefly to the Mamooks, the Service Club of
the Campus. In the last issue of this paper certain statements were
made concerning the Mamooks which have been regarded by the
members of the service club as one-sided, untrue, and unnecessary.
The necessity for criticism is, of course, debatable, but the
claim of the Mamookians that the amount of good work done by
the club outweighs the mistakes is very true.
The editorial policy of this paper is hard to define in precise
terms, but there is no doubt that the editorial staff has no desire
to impede the Campus clubs in their work. The opinions expressed
in the columns of the paper are the opinions of the writers, and
not necessarily those of the editor.
The Editor, however, is held responsible for anything appearing in the paper. The Editor accepts this responsibility—being
unable to do anything else I
Consequently in connection with the maltreated Mamooks it
must be pointed out that the amount of hard, uninteresting, behind-the-scenes work handled by them is tremendous. Few students
realize the fact that all the practical side of promoting games or
social functions is undertaken by the Mamooks.
The Campus gives little visible support to the Mamooks, and
can be blamed for any apparent failures of the ' pep elub' in carrying out their appointed tasks. The entire situation seems paradoxical. The Mamooks are supposed to be responsible for maintaining and creating college spirit, yet at the same time their work is
impossible if the students refuse to react.
If the Mamooks wish credit from the student body for* their
thankless jobs they may be disillusioned, for they will receive
little more than verbal knocks.
Obviously, too much has been said against the Mamooks,
whereas nothing has been said for them. The Club is an indispensable part of this Campus, trying to do a very difficult job with
sincere effort and thoroughness. The Campus must now rally round
the club, and give it the fullest support, that in the future there
may be no possible reason for adverse comment upon the club.
Letters Te The Editor
Mr. John Oarrett,
The Ubyssey.
Dear Sir:
I should like to draw to your attention the various articles appearing ln recent issues of the Ubyssey
with reference to olub work on the
campus. I feel that certain of the
criticisms have been more than a
Uttle unjust to several of tho forty-
three olubs on the campus. True,
there are deficiencies in some of
them, but tbey are not without very
commendable characteristics.
In certain cases these crltloisms
have had most discouraging consequences in the clubs concerned. The
articles, written by persons who are
obviously not fully aoquaintad with
the facts and do not take the trouble
to discover them, have done Uttle
but condemn, and have failed to
point out the' benefits aoorulng to
the campus from the actions of the
members of the clubs.
Further, I believe you will admit
that if the articles in question are to
be considered authentic, they should
at least appear beneath their owners' names.
I may add that if, at any time,
your paper ls desirous of obtaining
the complete facts of club work on
the campus, I should be glad to
afford them the full facilities of the
Literary   and   Scientific   Sooiety.
Vours very truly,
The Literary A Scientific Executive.
Mr. John Oarrett,
Editor, The Ubyssey.
Dear  Sir:
Under the column "Mortarboard,"
appearing in your Tuesday Issue,
were several unjust and Indiscreet
statements for which you, as editor,
are responsible.
It is a very poor policy for the
Ubyssey to publish any but constructive criticism, especially of the
clubs on the oampua, struggling as
they are under insufficient budgets.
We clubmen are doing our bit to
help liven up this dead University,
yet you sit back and wait for an
opportunity to criticize us whenever
Why don't you, for a change, try
giving credit where oredit Is due,
and criticism only where criticism
is warranted and unavoidable Instead of the opposite as you are doing at present?
You are In a poaltlon to make your
publication an effective instrument
in interesting the students in University activity and you are not doing ao.
I have yet to aee a Ubyssey that
ia worth reading, or a atudent who
has ever read one for any reaaon
other than that he haa nothing else
to do. If you could turn out a one-
page leaflet that every atudent found
lntereating enough to read avidly
you would be doing an infinitely fetter job than issuing the four-page
miserable muddle of mediocre mut-
teiings, misinformation, and misprints that appears so half-heartedly
every Tuesday and Friday.
If you would only back up all the
clubs and all the sports, both major
and minor, with a more personal
and Interested commentary in the
Ubyssey we'd be getting somewhere.

practically any day during tha winter session, will beoome Immediately
aware of the faot. If he should be
fortunate enough to witness one of
the many Ward 9—Ward 2 feuds, he
will receive an effective demonstration of the College's fighting spirit.
Fsuds between Ward 9, the men's
smoking room, and Ward 3, the
men's oommon room, (both of whloh
have retained the names given them
when Dunsmuir castle was a war
time hospital) are frequent and
bloody. They are usually accompanied by a mass removal of furniture from tha rooms, and clothing
from th* Individuals. Co-operation
at all time* is extended by the ladles
of the Women's Commons who view
all encounters with a bloodthirsty
What Viotorla College student
oannot recall, for example, the gruesome oampaign of '38-'39? Perhaps
a brief resume of those hectic days
will serve to Illustrate.
It seems that Ward 3 possessed a
very soft, comfortable leather chair.
Now Ward 9 coveted the obalr above
all other thlnga, and Imbued by a
spirit of Communism, they swooped
upon Ward 3 one quiet day, and
absconded with the priae. To say
that Ward 2 was outraged is an understatement. After holding several
monster indignation meetings, they
nominated a secret committee who
removed the chair from the murky
depths of the smoking room, and
took another one for good measure.
Two days later, Ward 2er» entered
the commons room to find all the
chairs and couches gone. Ward 9
was now crammed to the celling
with so much furniture that students found it difficult to enter. But
not for long.
Ward 9ers arrived at their den
next morning, to find the place stripped bare. Everything was gone from
pictures on walls to lampshades and
doornobs. Even the ashes on the
floor had been swept up and deposited  in  Ward 2.
The major battle took place at
noon hour that day. Accompanied
by the sounds of breaking of furniture and rending of trousers, the
tussle raged. Nobody knows who
won. Nobody cared. But a large
portion of the furniture was rendered useless.
During the rest of the year, the
opposing factions registered their
dislike of one another by abducting
stray victims and removing a oer-
tain portion of their clothing. This
unmentionable garment was then
thrown in the Women's Commons.
The co-operation of the co-eds on
these occasions is praiseworthy.
Bringing out needle and thread they
proceeded to do a very effective Job
of sewing up the article. They sewed lt across, they sewed it diagonally,
they sewed lt horizontally and they
sewed the pockets. Then they tied
it up In a little bundle, oomplete
with pink ribbon and the owner's
name, and deposited lt in Ward 9, to
the vast discomfiture of fhe victim.
Thus the winter passed merrily.
But that spring a staggering blow
was dealt Ward 9. Seated on a
couch In the room, one of the members became acutely aware of a
burning sensation beneath him. Tbe
couoh waa on fire! The assembled
students acted quickly. Rushing out
the door, they returned with the fire
hose, and pointed it at the couch.
Then  they turned  on  the water.
Now the fire hose was not particularly new, and regretably, the water
that was destined for the burning
couch,   escaped    through    numerous

The only suggestion we could make

that they oould attend the other performance.
We haven't seen the UB.C. plays

details necessary for an artistic production.

Yesterday, Russ Keillor, who took

We thought he was a scienceman

tell us that Bill Rose who took the
part of 811m, the foreman was a U.
B.C. man, Arts '21.
We told him our Uttle complaint of
too much profanity in the play, but
added that he was probably so used
to it now that he wouldn't notice lt.
He explained that he was too used to

It'll be the biggest little game of the current Big Four league*
tomorrow, when the mighty men from U.B.C. take on the Victoria
Revellers in a championship game at the Varsity Stadium. Both
teams will be out to stage a real "shootin' match" as Varsity
are anxious to maintain their spotless record, that of nine straight
wins, and grab off their third trophy of the year, the Lipton Cup.
The Revellers on the other hand, lost all six of their regular Big

week, and will be gunning for Varsity's scalp.
The Collegians will be at full1-
