Council To Co-operate
In Time Of War
"The Students' Council offers
its fullest co-operation to the
Government of this country and
to the authorities of this University in all that these bodies
may do ns a part of the war effort of Canada. ..."
And so emerged part of the
policy of the Students' Council
of the Alma Mater Society of
the University of British Columbia from a longwindcd meet-
ins* which lasted some three and
a half hours on Monday night.
Prompted partly by a letter received from the National Federation
of Canadian University Students
which expressed the polloy of the executive of that organization, Council
determined to act as far as possible
in support of present university authorities.
The executive of the N.F.C.U.S.
has offered the services of Its organization to the Canadian Government,
and has started to circularize information amongst the different Students Councils of the Universities in
A copy of a letter which was sent
to all students of McOlll University
was   enclosed   with   the   letter   from
the N.F.C.U.S. executive. McOill
atudenta were told by their Chancellor, E. W. Beatty, their Principal, L.
W. Douglas, the writera of the letter,
that feea will be returned to thoae
atudenta who are called up on military service during the university
aesslon, and that all those students,
alumnae, or staff connected with
McOlll would be given personal advice by the Wartime Advisory Council aa to their wisest course to pursue  during the next session.
In spite of the fact that this letter
was aent out by adminiatrative authorities in McOill University, the
McOill Studenta' Council gave its
"unqualified endorsement" to the
policy of their Chancellor and Principal.
But our Council did not spend the
entire evening discussing possible
war policies. They determined upon
a probable seven point policy (which
will be presented in full at the Alma
Mater meeting today at noon) ranging from a balanced budget to continued efforts to obtain a lj/J hour
lunch period.

"Attack" Is Only Reason for Active
Participation in Warfare, Split
Vote on Neutralty Laws
From The Washington Dally
SEATTLE,  Oct.   1—Casting their  ballots,  American  university students today revealed they are willing to go to war under
only one condition: if the United States proper is attacked.
Voting   was   In   response   to The» '
Daily's war poll, printed ln co-operation with the Associated Students
of UCLA and more than 500 colleges
and universities throughout the country. Eight hundred ninety-five ballots
were cast.
Final tabulations at Washington
Indicated the national collegiate poll,

now ln emergency session In the nation's capltol.
Student opposition to and approval
of President Roosevelt's "cash and
carry" plan, proposed as a revision
to the present neutrality act and approved yesterday by the Senate foreign relations committee, resulted In
the only tie vote.
In answer to question 3, "Under
present conditions, should the United
States sell munitions on a cash basis
to any belligerent nations who oan
call for the Items ln their own ships?
Four hundred thirty-eight students
voted "Yes" and 438 voted "No."
The question occasioned the only
disagreement between the sexes, the
majority of co-eds favoring the plan,
the majority of males disapproving
Most decisive "No" of the poll came
in response to the question "Should
the United States enter the European
war as an active fighting agent?"
Another decisive answer, to question 6-D, found 7S1 students unwilling to fight "lt United States marl-
time rights were violated: I.e., it American ships were sunk with American passengers aboard,?" 118 answering ln the affirmative.
Question S-A found 214 co-eds
willing to lay down text-books for

Five out of nine provincial governments are co-operating with the Dominion Department of Labour in the
provision of Dominion Provincial
Youth Training Scholarships for deserving students, a recent survey by
the Canadian Student Assembly reveals.
The scholarship campaign of the
Canadian   Student   Assembly,   and
the resulting Federal plan to provide   assistance   for   approximately
three  hundred  atudenta  In  1939-40
five   hundred   the   following   year,
and  seven  hundred  the  third,  has
thua come to fruition In a practical
way.    Britiah     Columbia,     Alberta,
Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Prince
Edward     Island    have    announoed
their  participation  in   the  scheme.
The Scholarships which  will average   $150   each,   may   ln   some   cases
amount to $25 a month. The students
are being selected by a committee ot
each  participating   university  on  the
basis of merit and need.

The Handbook for the present session is at last available in
Students' Council Offlce, after considerable delay in tho process
of its publication.
No blame can be attached to those entrusted with the task
of compiling the material of which the Handbook is composed.
The chief cause of the delay was the uncertainty during the early
days of "World War II." (as that worthy publication "Time"
has described the present European conflict).
The Committee in charge of Initiation ceremonies on this
Campus were unable to decide on the number of tho Freshman
class until definite announcements had been made by the Oovernment of Canada regarding conscription.
But once the issue over compulsory military service was clear,
there arose a fresh problem. The Prosh clnss continued to inerense
in size with every new day of registration, until finally the number
had far exceeded the largest of preceding years. Consequently the
number of Handbooks to be turned out was grenter than at first
expected, and the ultimate date of publication had to be pushed
even further ahead.
There have been, however, several changes in the contents of
the Handbook whieh have brought it up-to-date in every possible
way. All constitutional amendments, revisions of such regulations
as the Eligibility Rules, and alterations in names, or customs of
Campus Clubs have been included in tho book by the Editor,
Janet Walker.
The Editor's note in the front part of the Handbook clearly
expresses tho purpose of the book, and asks that students moke
■an attempt to enter extra-curricular activities with a modicum of
The Editor's note concludes with this mite of observation:
"Every campus organization depends upon and welcomes new
It sounds trite, but "Tuum est".
In the merrie land of England, there is an old term which
might well be brought into fashion on this Campus. The expression consists of the two simple words "litter lout".
If the expression were pluralized, it would become an accurate
description of a large and influential group of students. The activities of the group are not in any way restricted, nor do any of the
members f the body suffer from inhibitions as to the possible
spheres for their business, whieh, at least to the superficial observer, is chiefly to distribute as much waste paper, half finished sandwiches, old Coca-Cola bottles and cigarette butts over as extended
an area as possible.
To look at the University Orill, conventionally known as the
"Caf", during lunch hour is quite sufficient proof of tho appropriateness of the expression. The waitresses in the Caf are not underworked at the best of times, but when they are compelled to dig
their way through about two tons of waste matter after a few
hundred students have finished their sandwieh-ish lunches, it is a
wonder that the students receive any service at all in the Caf.
But the debris in the Caf at noon matters little when compared
to the littering of the Campus itself with similar filth. The Campus
portion of Marine Drive eould make a beautiful walk, were it not
for the remains of student lunches east about, apparently with
wild abandon by selfish students.
University educations may improve the intelligence of sorme in
an academic way. Can it, however, replace laziness and vulgarity
with energy and gentility?
Somewhere, at aome time, you
have all read something of the equality of man. Later perhaps you read
something of equality of opportunity. Still later you heard something
of the equality of aexea.
From the time that your fond
mama or proud papa imagined that
you could—through the grace of Ood
and other agenolea—become the
Prime Minister of Canada you have
heard oonalderable nonaenae about
the equality of opportunity.
Now you are a little ■ older. Now
many yeara later, both papa and
mama have realgned themaelvea to
the inevitable fact that you will not
be the Prime Minister of Canada—
the other agenciea dissenting.
However, there la one faot that la
evident. This one faot la that you,
aa unlveralty atudenta, will In the
future have a college degree which,
among other thlnga, signifies that
you have had an education.
Be that as it may. During that
slow process in 'which thla education
was acquired you heard aomethlng
about co-operation, achievement and
One of your profeaaora may have
defined success as helping yourself.
If he did so he may have then defined achievement as helping the
other fellow. To go one step further
he may have then defined co-operation aa helping the other fellow to
help somebody else.
Ergo. A co-operative society is one
In which all peoples disregard their
own personal ambitions and Instead
regard only the state or the unit,
Achievement and co-operation are
then the fundamentals of a demo
cratlc  institution.
So what—you might ask.
The University is a democratically
run Institution. 'Were It not for the
co-operation of the studenta, there
would be no college spirit—though
latent this spirit may at times be;
there would be no Brock Memorial
Building; there would be no Stadium;  there would be no tradition.
But the Unlveralty haa a tradition.
We have monumenta—the Union
Building, the Stadium—to the plon
eera  of the paat.
Theae pioneera learned how to cooperate mainly by co-operating with
othera in club work, be It literary or
Now, theoretically, theae cluba are
themselves democratic being parta
of a democratic organisation. Being
parta they ahould be run ao aa to
give the maximum amount of ser
vice to the whole.
Theae cluba ahould b_ ao governed
that   they   are   contributing   to   the
college tradition and to the foaterlng
of the college apirit.
Did you know that a number
of cluba on thla campus have interlocking directorates?
Did you know that some Individuals have executive positions on more
than one club—some persona aa
many aa three or four?
Now auch extraordinary executive
ability ia to be commended. Moreao
this  veraatility la to be plauded.
But the ego of the Individual who
Imagines that he ia contributing
moat to the University by hla numerous interlocking positions ls not
to be commended.
Common sense flavored with a
little bit of reasoning shows that no
man or woman, versatile or not, oan
run aeveral cluba to the advantage
of any one.
Capable atudenta -who could otherwise contribute to our tradition are
prevented from ahowing their executive abilitiea by the vanity of theae
versatile  persons.
If thia unlveralty ia to have clubs
which will add to the university
spirit then lt Is time that these Interlocking directorates are broken
Clubs will only be successful if,
and only if, the maximum amount of
students hold office. The man with
the Rockefeller or the Holt complex
should drop down a peg.

for hla efforts to promote a friendly

Ensnared Students Sink Under
Influence of Devious Drugs
Is the university really succumbing to the power of drug, presented
to us in the highly satisfying forms
of Coco-cola and cigarettes? This
horrible thought auddenly occurred
to us as we watched students pale
and shaken dash into the cafeteria,
their eyea filled with an expression
of Insatiable desire. They approaohed
tho counter, seised a bottle of coke
and then relaxed at the nearest table
to spend the rest of the day ln a
roseate dream, soothed by this ambrosial nectar and surrounded by the
fumes of their cigarettes.
We even found some professors
who always peek surreptitiously Into
their classrooms before entering, so
great is their tear of the results arising from interrupting the students
in their between lecture smoke.
So horrified were we at these revelations of degeneration, that we descended to the lair of Mr. Underhiil,
the chief purveyor to these temptations.
To our horror he confirmed these
suspicions. In the oourse of a day, he
confessed that he sold thirty cases of
Coco-cola and twenty-five dollars
worth of cigarettes. This has been
going on for two years. During this
time, more and more students have
fallen a prey to persistent advertising. They have read signs, Illustrated
by America's most alluring glamour
girls. Coco-cola has been presented
to them free at banquets and other
social functions.
Mr. Underhiil himself, informed us
that at first he tried to resist the
Insidious evil of cigarettes by stopping the girls from smoking. But women's rights prevailed, and now the
co-eds also help to swell his coffers.
As a general rule, the students Indulge ln the pause that refreshes In
equal ratio as they reach for Luckles
or their favourite Canadian brand of
And after aU why blame them?
What better stimulates the flow of
Caf Gossip and discussion than a
cigarette and a coke? Furthermore
to Judge from our athletic record the
effect of such indulgences ls not as
harmful as we have made out.

Stark realism, psychology, drama,
and farcical comment met the audience attending the first performance
of the University Experimental
Theatre on Friday.
The plays, written by students of
the play writing course given by
Professor 'Wood, and directed by
Miss Dorothy Somerset and Mr. Sidney Risk, Justified the effort put
forth by the performers.
The Octopus, written by Peter
Helllwell, carried a rather controversial theme extremely well. Although an excessive uae of profanity
detraoted from the movement of the
plot, an effective use of dialect and
stage bualneaa by Archie Bain gave
atrength to the performance.
The Teapot, by Alice Nell, presented a domestic triangle that at
times was unconvluclng. An empty
atage, or one on whioh there were
two characters, aeated extreme
right, did not tend to create a great
deal of intereat. The symbolism Involving the teapot, however, aua-
tained throughout, doea credit to the

Varsity Takes Gridiron Opener 10-8
Snatch Thriller From Lions
In Dying Moments
Blocked Kick on North Shore Twenty Paves?
Way for Winning Touchdown in Last
Three Minutes of Play
Canadian football experts were completely baffled Saturday,
when the "woefully weak" gridders from U.B.C. rallied to snatch
a thrilling 10-8 victory from North Shore Lions, Big-Four champions.
Bated by experts and coaches alike as a mere shadow of former greatness, a green backfleld and a powerful line toppled the
Mountain Marauders in a thrilling climax to a bang-up game of
rugged football, marred only by opening day fumbling and rag-
It took a Hollywood ending to pull the game out of the fire for the
Collegians, and lt was veteran linesman Freddie Wood who supplied the
vitalising punch when he broke through the Lion defense to blook a klok on
the North Shore twenty. Stradlottl who had followed Smith on the play fell
on the ball as It rolled to the seven yard line putting the Studenta In a
scoring position.
All this happened with but three minutes to go, and followed close on
the heels of a North Shore touchdown and convert whioh had given the
Hillmen a 8-8 margin.
With the dying moments of the game tloklng away, Joplln took the
ball from the seven and by a concerted effort smashed his way through the
middle of the line to the North Shore one-yard line, where Oraham Finlay
on the next play, knifed over his own right guard for the winning score.
Varsity assumed a brief lead in the seoond quarter, when following a
scoreless first period, Johnny Pearson booted one of hla plgakin specials
and a North Shore fullback waa rouged for one point.
North Shore took over when with the ball on the Varsity five-yard line,
a bad snap, and a fumble by Barney Boe forced a safety touch to give the
Hillmen two pointa and a 2-1 lead.
Burly Jim Harmer put the Student forces back on top of the heap In
the third quarter when he booted a field goal that sailed through the uprights from thirty-flve yards out.
North Shore marshalled their forces ln the opening minutes of the
fourth frame and pressed the Varsity defense continually. Galloping Oarnle
Smith carried the ball deep Into Varsity territory, and brutal line plunges
by Modine and Mauro carried the baU to the Student ten-yard line.
Bullock, faking a forward pass, slipped the ball to Smith who shadowed
his way around the Collegians' left side to plunge over for a major score
near the flag. The convert was good and placed the Lions on top of an
8-8 score, with but three and a half minutes of play remaining.
It was at this stage of the game that the Blue and Gold pulled a Hollywood scenario from their bag of tricks and began to swarm all over the
lionised Lions.
Kicking off from their own forty-yard line the Students swarmed all
over the baU-recelver to stop him on the North Shore twenty-five-yard
marker. Two line plunges by Modine were stopped oold, and the stage was
set for Lucking to drop back for the kick.
Just as the big left-footer was getting set to let fly Freddie Smith
crashed his Way through the defense to block the attempted kick with his
arm, and Hank Stradlottl fell on it to put the Collegians In line for a
' touchdown.
This failed to daunt the Bishop-less Lions who immediately pointed
down the field wtth less than two minutes of play remaining.
Harry BuUook, North Shore's ace pass-thrower, heaved a desperate pass
to Oarnle Smith who pulled It ln off his fingers and galloped to what seemed
destined to be a touchdown. Milt Angus, following ln his wake, Just managed
to catch hold of some North Shore sweater and hung grimly on to it, finally
succeeding ln pulling him down on the sixteen.
Another passing attempt foozled and Varsity had the ball and the game,
leaving the self-styled experts holding the prognastlcatory bag, the final
score reading 10-8.
Big Jeem Harmer, likeable Men's Athletic Rep, and English rugby convert, proved to be the And of the season, backing up the line and Intercepting two North Shore passes and recovering one fumble. Harmer Joined
Joplln and Lee Straight as sixty minute men, playing the entire game without substitution.
Line stars were Lee Straight ln the middle position, Hank Stradlottl who
played his usual valuable game at tackle and Freddie Smith at the guard
position who played with less than a week of active practices under his belt.

championship stars have graduated

the  students.
This year'a squad will be provided
with brand new equipment, and Dr.
Black, the team's illustrious coach,
has promised to make the teams
play as brilliant as those new uniforms.

Although Varsity won the grid
game on Saturday, the Varsity-
North Shoro grid feud Is by no
means over. North Shore were credited with the better portion of the
play and the edge In strategy. It was
but two bad breaks that set North
Shore behind.

The contest showed Van Vllet exactly how the Thunderbirds matoh
up to the other teams ln the loop.
The passing combination Is the most
outstanding weakness of the squad.
With such effective blocking In the
line even a mediocre passing combination would serve in that department of the offence.

A good defence Is the best offence.
That adequately sums up the Van
Vllet  strategy.
Hla line waa much auperior to the
mountalneera. Thla waa evident In
the dlfferenoea of kicking. Pearson
had all the time In the world to get
the ball off his boot and made use
of It every time, but on tbe other
side of the fence Lucking had to
rush his kicking and seldom had
more than thirty yards. In fact it
was one of these kicks that didn't
even get on Its way that gave the
students their break.

South Vanoouver, the favoritea for
the Vancouver and Diatrlct Soccer
league honora thla year atarted their
campaigning Saturday at Cambie
Street Orounda with a 8-0 victory
over the Varaity orew.
The acore waa no Indication of the
play, although the South Vanoouver
Merohanta held a slight edge
throughout. Dennis Leong, was the
standout for Varsity as he twisted
and turned his short, stubby body
around the University goal keeping
out the Merchant shots definitely
earmarked as counters.
The South Van tribe started with
a rush and It wasn't long after the
referee's starting whistle that Art
Howard saw one ot his shots nip the
corner of the student oage.
Play shuttled baok and forth along
the field with the varsity orew missing set-ups after Todd on the right
wing had scintillated with field-
length runs and perfect crosses to
the goal mouth.
South Van were always dangerous
on breakaways and Roach and Wallace, Varsity fullbacks, had trouble
stemming their lightning attacks.
Three of these plays Leong squelched single-handed but on the fourth
he never had a chanoe as Art Howard found the top corner for his
second counter.
It was Just before the final whistle
that South Vancouver acored their

U.B.C. basketball teams have reaa-
on to be very grateful to Jimmy
Bardaley, captain of the 1986-87 edition Thunderbirda, and preaent
Senior B. ooach.
Four seasons ago Jimmy waa one of
the famoua "Oolduat Twins" when
he teamed with Art Wllloughby to
lead the Blue and Oold to glory.
When "Bugs" finally left college ln
1037 he went to Chllllwaek aa high
sohool physical Inatruotor, During
hla stay In that fair Fraaer Valley
city he helped two coming Varaity
stars get  their basketball  atarta.
Wally Johnaon and Jim Scott are
the two lada. Both were membera of
Bardaley'a Intermediate B aquad at
C.H.S. Laat aeaaon the combination
waa split. Wally came to Varaity,
where he waa acclaimed one of the
greateat rookie finds ot the year.
Jim atayed in Chllllwaek, where he
waa hlgh-acorer on the Valleys, provincial Senior B. champs.
Now these two boys are together
again, raring to go for the 1030-40
Thunderbirds. Don't say we didn't
tell you, for the Johnson-Scott duo
will be remembered in this university's basketball annals as being on
a par with the Bardsley-Wiiloughby
