m   Reviewing
The Play
By LUCY BERTON
• IT WAS a well-rehearsed and polished cast that
stepfoed onto the stage on
Wednesday evening to present Gerald Savory's rollicking comedy "George and
MwiigaFBT'ttefore one of the
most difficult audiences any
group of players could ever
have the misfortune to aot •
Bouquets are due to Elizabeth '
Lock* and Alan Ainsworth for excellent performances. Ainsworth,
usually given" to a tendency to
overoaet, managed to calm hla enthusiasm for the part of the doddering though observant father.
Blackl* L** must be given much
cr*dit for practically stealing th*
•how la th* last set when slfe appeared as th* maid Beer. Her part
required cartful atudy, although
ah* dace not aay a word and is
only on th* stag* for a few minutes, h*r part ia quite important.
Blair Baillle a* th* stuffy, elder
brother Claud*, and Ronald Heal
as th* effervescent younger aon
both tum*d In good performances,
contrasting excellently. Sandra
Gordon as th* frivolous Frankie
and Art Jones as the lover acted
well together. Helga Jarvi, th*
# maid, fav* able support.
But my main criticism In this review of the play ia not of th*
actor* and actresses who all did
'  a very good Job, but of the audience on Wednesday night.
Student* at thi* University have
been heard to claim that they are
treated a* Infanta. How can they
expect to be treated otherwise
. when, they act only aa infant* act?
I wiah I knew the names of those
student* who were responsible for
the disgusting performance of
whistle*, yells, cheers and jeers, so
that I could hold them up individually for criticism.
Do these students intend all. their
lives to attend the theatre and act
as if they were at a colloge pep-
meet? Not only is it very poor
appreciation and very poor taste
at a sterling performance such as
that put on Wednesday evening,
but also It Is very bad manners
and very selfish. Perhaps those
student* do not realize that possibly there are many In the audience who enjoy the theatre and
the Players' Club performances
and would like to be able to hear
what la going on without a lot of
uncalled-for remarks from immature and ignorant children.
I know I am not alone In this
criticism. Many students afterwards expressed disgust at the attitude of the audience. Half the
performance and a good many of
the best lines in the play were
entirely lost on the greater part of
the audience because of the whistling and laughs In the wrong places.
One would think that by the time
students were of University age
they would be able to sit down
quietly and appreciate a good play.
There is a time and a place for
everything. The time and place
for the attitude taken by those students at the play Wednesday evening Is at Pep-Meets and in the
cheering section at Varsity games.
I do not notice such enthusiasm at
such places. Perhaps It would be
a good Idea if some of the students
took a course in etiquette. They
should learn to behave like ladles
and gentlemen when they are attending a play that is Intended
for ladies and gentlemen.
The fact that the players are
students Is no excuse for the attitude. No one minds a bit of
fooling, but when lt las » for two-
and-a-half hours and rt-ins an entire evening it is too much.

• STUDENTS were awakened from the mid-morning naps Wednesday by the
music of a. really smooth
RCAF band. The oseislon
was a ceremonial send-oft
for aircraftsmen from the
RCAF refresher course at
the university, prior to their
postings to flying stations in
Canada.
Wing Commander W. G. Chapman, D.C.M., D.F.M., officer commanding Jericho Beach station,
inspected the airmen.
The purpose 9! the course at the
university is to give refresher
classes and Is part of the Commonwealth Air Training plan. The students vary In educational standards from a Ph.D. degree to third
year high school, and come from
Eastern Canada and the United
States.
Qualified high school instructors
conduct the classes which give
lectures on the subjects required
for air-crew training.
The commanding officer of the
RCAF at the university expressed
his appreciation to all the Varsity
student groups who made the stay
of the airmen a very pleasant one.
"Man-Power Policy Is
Inadequate" - Shrum,
Sedgewick Bjlelieve
*
•   ARTS 100 was filled to overflowing last Tuesday noon
when Dr. G. G. Sedgewick and Col. G. M. Shrum spoke
on "The Position of Students in Wartime."
Both speakers stressed the need for students, both men
and women, to take an active part in winning the war.
NAIL POLISH "ALL RIGHT"
Dr. Sedgewick said that he personally was in favour of conscription; Col. Shrum said it was his
belief that the present man-power
policy was inadequate to meet the
coming offensive.
"We are not winning the war
yet," he said.
Col. Shrum added that women
were manning the anti-aircraft
guns In England, and that it was
as much a woman's duty as a man's
duty to consider how best she
might serve.
"Nail polish is all right; as a
matter of fact I like it," he said,
"but women shouldn't spend so
long on it!"
POTENTIAL LEADERS
Both speakers also pointed out
that University students are potential leaders. The army is short
of officers. Dr. Sedgewick said that
winning the peace would be a more
arduous task than winning the
war; and that if students joined
the armed forces they could find
time to read and to prepare themselves to lead or to choose leaders
after the war.
"Intelligent people can always
agree," he said, "it's the fanatics
who insist on going their own
way." Who should be better e-
quipped than a university student
to make an intelligent choice? If
gold rusts, what shall Iron do?"
STUDENTS NOT SLACKERS
Col. Rhrum agreed that univers-
ity vvus an excellent place for
training men to become leaders
quickly, and that therefore freshmen should not be hounded by the
draft board or be called slackers,
when they were equipping themselves for more adequate service.
COL G. M. SHRUM
But he also agreed with Dr.
Sedgewick that for a student to
come to Varsity for purely selfish
reasons, just to train himself to
become rich, while others fight for
him to keep that privilege, is immoral, and the student is guilty of
treason.
The Social problems Club will
meet again next Tuesday at 12:30
in Arts 208, when Jean Elliott will
head a discussion on "The Student's Part in Post-War Reconstruction."

UBC Acquires
6000 Acres For
Forestry Dept'ment
• TO ENCOURAGE RESEARCH in silviculture and log-
ging engineering the Department of Lands recently leased
9600 acres of the southern tips of Garibaldi Park to the University of British Columbia. To be known as the University
Forest, the area was selected and obtained as part of the
long range policy of the University, intimated Professor
Knapp, Acting Head of the Department of Forestry.'
ACCESSIBLE
MUNRO   PRE-MED - Meeting
March   19,   12:30   p.m.,   Arts   106.
Election of officers; arrangements
for supper meeting; applications
for medical school will be available; details of trip to Essondale.
"We have always realized the
■ urgent need for an outdoor forest
laboratory to conduct research in
reforestation, logging engineering, forest protection, and rate of
growth. During the past ten
years, the Department of Forestry
examined several sites; and after
an extensive survey of the lower
Fraser River Valley selected a
block of Garibaldi Park just north
of Haney. Accessible by car wltn-
in one and one half hours, the
forest is only forty miles from the
campus.
Pleased with the news, Profes.
sor Knapp revealed that few universities in North America have
such an ideal forest, either in size,
accessibility, or character. The
University of California forest is
over 100 miles from the campus;
the Michigan forest is only 3500
acres. Other forests range In area
from 50 to 100,000 apres.
Scattered throughout the forest
are 14 lakes of various sizes. In
the future — prabably after the
war — Loon Lake, a well known
hunting ond fishing centre will
be the headquarters of a summer
forestry camp where forestry students will study natural forest
conditions. Eventually, an extensive research program will be formulated and carried out; and the
findings of technical and scientific foresters will be made available to logging companies throughout tho province. Thus, the University will be making another
contribution to the province and
Industry.
"Our forest is well-suited for
such intensive research', stated
Professor Knapp. "It contains all
timber types such as the main
coast species of douglas fir, cedar,
and hemlock and even some white
pine and yellow cedar. All age-
classes are represented from seed-
dllng stage to virgin stands. Thera
are 1400 acres of mature timber,
3200 acres of second growth, 600
acres of reproduction, and 3100
acres of logged off lands which
are ideal for studying regeneration,
artificial and natural reproduction,
and seedling establishment.
"From our studies of the rotas
of growth of each species in each
ago class we will be able to determine the most effective and most
economical methods of developing
a sustained-yield forest in which
the annual cut equals the annual
growth."

A letter was received by Roy

him that it was possible that the
governors would revoke their decision of a former meeting and
would confer with grad representatives at the regular monthly meeting of the board. The decision of
the Governors at their last meeting

In an interview with the UBY-
SSEY this week President Klinck
stated that the Graduation fee is
considered as any other fee, and
is placed under the general fundi
of the University. This would
mean that if the administration
gives out a statement ot the grad
fees then there is no reason why
they should not give out a statement of the expenditure of aay
other function of the university.
It has been a definite policy not to
issue such statements in the past
Dr. Klinck also emphasized the
care and planning which goes Into
the graduation ceremonies. It has
been built up to a peak of efficiency by constant changing and
re-organisation, and the committees have endeavoured to make
every event In the program count
so that any changes, which might
be made by the inexperienced,
could easily upset the whole show.
The president also pointed out
that every graduate automatically
becomes a member of Convocation
and ia entitled to vote for members
of the Senate and for the Chancellor of the university. There have
been nearly 6000 graduates of UBC

Four Weeks
Limit For
Rushing
• CHIEF SUBJECTS of
discussion at the annual
Pan-Hellenic "workshop",
which was held on Saturday,
March 13, in Brock Hall,
were Sorority Rushing and
the support and improvement of Women's Intramurals.
In connection with the latter, it
was suggested that the Intramural
program be given in the Calendar
so that students be given a fair
chance to select a timetable including both the desired subjects
and the physical activity preferred. Last year, the co-eds chose
their scholastic program and then
had to take PT which fitted their
timetables.
With regard to next year's rush,
ing, a decision was made to cut
the rushing period to four weeks,
Instead of the six weok period
used last year.
Also, the sororities will follow
the same order of sequence In their
teas and closed parties .instead of
having a different timetable for
each series of events.
The  period  of  registration  for
opep bidding after Christmas will
last one week, followed by    two
days of silence between sorority
women and rushees.   On the first
day of silence, each sorority will
notify the  others who they are
bidding.    The   second   day,   bids
will be given out with a fifteen-
minute period allowed to deliver
each bid,   and • will   terminate   in
pledging.
Next year's slate of officers for
Pan-Hellenic was elected at the
meeting, and consists of president,
Sylvia Andcrsfiv, viro-preslnent,
Dinah Reld; secretary, Mary
Frances Trumbull; treasurer, Babs
Macpherson; and sports chairman, Teenie Fleming.
The meeting followed the annual
Pan-Hellenic luncheon, which was
held In the Brock.

THE   UBYSSEY
Friday, March 19, 1943
•    From The Editor's Pen »

The Fee Question
The meeting of the grad class, which
has been scheduled for today, is, in our
opinion, considerably overdue. When members of the senior class signed the petition
asking for an accounting of the expenditures,
they expected that their executive would
keep them informed of what was happening.
The executive has failed to do so.
Roy Deane, class president, presented
the petition to the president on Monday,
March 8. A letter acknowledging receipt ef
the petition and intimating that the governors may meet with the executive on March
29, was sent to Mr. Deane the following day,
was opened by members of the executive,
and was in Deane's hands early Thursday
morning. A Vancouver News-Herald reporter uncovered the letter and turned in a story
on its context to the morning newspaper, yet
Mr. Deane denied having received the letter
and the UBYSSEY took his word, with the
result that no information on it was given to
the students in our issue of March 12.
One other thing, that has not been disclosed to the grad class was a statement,
made by President Klinck, to the effect that
the $15 fee is regarded by the Board of
Governors in the same light as a tuition fee,
and if there is any surplus it is considered
as part of tiie operating fund of the university, if there is a deficit it is made up by the
university from the operating fund. Thus
the fee is included in tiie general operating
fund of tiie university and ihe request of the
seniors to discover tiie actual expenditures
is the same as asking for an itemized account
of any department's expenses. It has been
the policy of the University not to grant
such requests.
This places the dispute in a somewhat
different light, as most students had believed
grad fees to be a separate fund, and it is
our contention that the student body should
have been let in on the whole story so that
it could kno wfor sure just where it stands.
It would now seem, in the light of the
president's statement, that the grads are
asserting their right to know where any of
their money, tuition fees or otherwise, _*
going. It is the President's fear that this will
lead to trouble in the future, for the student
body may sometime inquire into other expenditures which concern the actual administration of the university.
It is our contention that it should be the
right of the student, and of the tax-payer,
(who puts up as much money as the student) to know the whys and wherefores of
the cost of their university education. If for
some reason they wish to question the expenses involved we think that it is their
right.
We doubt very much that any student
or group of students, would ever take it upon
themselves to question salaries or any matter which is strictly the concern of the administration. Wrf do feel that a tax-payer,
or a student, should be allowed to see why
a university education costs as much as it
does.
Then, to our way of thinking, the fact
that graduation fees are included as part of
the general expenditures of the university
is no reason for refusing to explain why it
costs more to graduate from UBC than it
does from any other Canadian university.
If the Board of Governors has good reason
for exacting the $15 fee, if perhaps there
are extra services given, then the graduation
class will not object to the payment of the
annual levy.
Therefore we feel that the grads should
stick by their request and that they should
send their representatives to the expected
meeting, with the governors on March 29,
with a clear knowledge of what is at stake.
They should also re-affirm their stand of the
petition and make it clear that they are not
demanding anything, but are only seeking
information, which they consider they have
a right to seek. We hope that the students
will take this stand today.
It is, however, only fair that the executives, who are representing the grads,
should let thern know the whole story, and
that .the A'uYfenfl stehtai^ ke?* P°ited- In
. „&f next tew weeks it will dV essent!aT*tka(
the representatives of the class of '43 keep
in mind their responsibility to the members
of the class which is baoking their stand.

This is another kind of hot water.
Professor Watson Kirkconnell, of Toronto

not prove fatal, but the Canadian Tribune,
trade unionism's tabloid terror, insists upon
complicating matters somewhat by hauling %

him—but thoroughly—over their own special grill.
A hard worker, a prolific author, Kirkconnell is an admitted expert on Canada's
ethic or racial groups. He knows our racial
makeup from Aryan to Zulu, and back again.
How do the editors of the Tribune feel about
him? A recent Tribune cover headline gives
a poetic clue:

Frosh Hold
Spring Hop
March 25
• UBC FROSH, still green
around the edges and a
trifle damp behind the ears,
but tired of being labelled
"Frosh" by condescending
upperclassmen after a whole
year out at the great big university, are preparing to hold
the first all-Frosh party of
the semester on Thursday,
March 25, in Brock Hall.
Predictions have been made that
the Frosh in mixing at the first
exclusive freshman affair of the
season minus the presence of supercilious upperclassmen will make
their informal "Spring Hop" a
rousing success.
It is not expected that those non-
Frosh who attend with members
of the Freshman class will dampen
the spirit of the party.
"It's going to be a grand 'do',"
stated committee members, "and
we urge that all Frosh attend their
own exclusive dance."
Two Ave dollar gift certificates
donated by Charleton and Morgan
and the Suzette Shop will be given
out as prizes during the evening.
Refreshments will be served. The
dance will last from 9 until 1
despite upperclassmen's pleas that
1 o'clock Is an outrageously late
hour for a Frosh party to end.
Tickets may be obtained free by
Frosh at the Quad box-office by
the presentation of a student's pass.
As the party ls not a draw half-
Frosh couples may obtain dollar
tickets at the box-office also.
Ticket sales will begin on Monday
from 11:30 to 1:30.
Patrons for the affair will be:
President and Mrs. L. S. Klinck,
Dean and Mrs. Buchanan, Professor W. Gage and Dean D. M.
Mawdsley.
At the helm of the committee ia
Phil Guman, ably backed by Tom
Fisher, Doug Reid, Dave King, Kay
Deas, Glenna Lees, and Eileen
Moore.

Steeves:
Arts Course
'Dead End'
• DURING a discussion of
the Department of Education estimates in the Legislature Wednesday, Mrs. D.
G. Steeves, member from N.
Vancouver, said that the arts
course now offered at UBC
"is a dead end leading to
nothing at all but cultural
standing."
Instead she proposed that more
forward-looking ideas be put into
effect in the government of the
university and saw no need for
the arts course, unless it leads to
some practical vocation.
Mrs. Laura Jamieson was of the
opinion that what was needed more
than anything else was a department o fsocial research such as at
Toronto and McGill.
She said in this connection, "We
can't possibly go forward and put
into effect plans for social progress
without such a department."
She also suggested that economics, social science and social
work at UBC could be strengthened considerably, as they are rather
weak at the present time.
President L. S. Klinck, InTom-
menting on this statement, said,
"A department of Social Research
would be a fine thing for the university if the money can be found
to establish the faculty, but at the
same time the mere fact that Toronto and McGill have such a department is no reason why British
Columbia should have such a faculty.
"The Home Economics course haa
been established and is functioning.
"Possibly it would be better if a
division of the work among universities was followed out rather
than each university Instituting
additioaal faculties."

30th, will have as ifs theme
"Post War Organization."
Sir Norman Angell, assisted by
visiting specialists in the fields of
politics, economics, sociology, will
guide this five weeks course of
lectures. It is proposed to pay
special attention to the problems
which will confront the United
States In its relations with the
peoples of the world, and to the
new places which men and women are going to occupy both during and following the war.
The University of British Columbia has been asked to name
several students (juniors, seniors,
or graduates) who would be suitable candidates for a scholarship
in the above Institute, and who
would be free to accept such, a
scholarship in spite of war obligations.
For further information consult

professor to the Toronto Canadian Club, in
which he expressed himself of a few hard
words concerning communists and their sympathizers. He said, among other things, that
the Writers', Broadcasters' and Artists' War
Council (never heard of it?fie on you!) was
"tiie Communist's most conspicuous victim
at present." Unwitting fellow-travellers on
the road to ruddy damnation, so to speak.
The W. B. and A. Council, turning
slightly »lue about its collective visage, sent
a letter to the Canadian Club, branding the
speaker's statements as "derogatory, defamatory ... and completely false." The club
was further ^asked to dissociate itself from
these charges and from the professor's reference to the council's secretary as "... a
young Jewish journalist."
"This introduction of the word 'Jewish',
along with Professor KirkconnelFs pointed
references ... to 'Anglo-Saxons' is particularly offensive and shows, a bias unbecoming
to his calling", the letter continues. And the
Tribune, fused ammunition piled high about
its guns and broadsiding like mad, screams:
"fascist!"
It must have been a lulu of a speech.
The Tribune says the CBC refused to broadcast it. But the trades-union groups are
moving up in full battledrill formation, Brens
to the right and left, prepared to let the Ontario air into the professor's scholarly hide.
Professor Kirkconnell's idea—by no
means an original one—apparently revolved
around the theory that Communism breeds
Fascism, which arises as a natural combatant
reaction.   The professor expressed no love
for fascism, it seems; but left-wing groups
are grimly pointing out that this idea is essentially that now being propounded by
Daddy Goebbels and his friends in their plea
for a free hand to get a hammerlock on the
Russian bear, hell-bent for Europe's chicken-
coops.
Oh, well. To this observer, it seems like
the old question: "which came first, the
chicken or the egg?"
He further suspects that what really
prompted the professor to make his remarks
was ihe same thing that soured the grandfather of H. L. Mencken, lovingly known as
"The Great American Sneerer", which H. L.
recounted some years ago as "The Parable
of My Grandfather's Cat."
Mencken Sr., it seems, had a cat. A
pretty, aristocratic feline. But, though he
tried for years, he couldn't make a friend of
the beast. He fawned, he grovelled, he did
everything. But pussy still disdained him;
and her eyes said: "Frankenstein!"
Finally, the old man snapped. Turning
around, he picked up a piece of cordwood
and advanced on the cat, crying: "Now, by
God—you insist I'm an ogre—I'll be one for
you!" And he forthwith beat hell out of it.
Mencken tells the story in his fanciful
little article entitled: "How I Became a
Fascist." Like the cat, he says, some groups
regard the capitalist as an ogre with one
bloody finger eternally in the workingman's
beer. Like Granpappy, this attitude .turns
said capitalist sour. And that's how fascists
are born. But hold back, men. Granpappy
and the cat may both have to ride in the
same ark before this flood is over.

Birds Meet Shores Tomorrow In Third Game I
Series Tied Now,
One Game Apiece;
Fourth Tilt Mon.
• BEFORE A PACKED house of cheering Varsity supporters mixed with a smattering of Shores followers, our
boys last Wednesday night took a two-game edge in their
best-of-five series. With three seconds remaining Sandy Robertson sunk the second of two desperate long shots to tie the
score and send the game into overtime. From that point on,
it was all Varsity. The collegians emerged with a

moat affected by the game
Wednesday night waa Harry Ker-
made, former UBC star center. If
Varsity had won last night, Harry
waa all set to play with Shores,
who wanted him for the whole
aeries, because he felt that his
presence then, In a Scores uniform
wounldn't make sny difference to
a red-hot Varsity team. Now he
isn't so sure. Kermode lives for
the nights when he can don a
basketball uniform and play his
heart out for tome team. That
team, of oouraa, he would muoh
prefer to be the Thunderbirds. It
was a great blow to him when he
was bounced from the University
at Christmas. Harry had planned
to finish his year out and then
join the RCAF. Right now he is
In the RCAF, but still, will not
leave until the present University
session finishes. There ia nothing
anyone can do about this ambiguous altuatlon but lt waa definitely a tough break for Harry Kermode. After he had lead theRCAF
to a near upset win over Shores
In the semi-finals, he had been
sought by this same Shores crew to
bolster them in the finals against
Varsity. Harry turned their invitation down with much reluctance.
Now, he haa another chance to
play for Shorea in their game next
Saturday against the Thunderbirds.
Our own hope is that Harry will
accept the Jewellers offer and then
turb out Yer them. Nobody is a
more rabid supporter of the Varsity basketball club than Harry, but,
ho loves the game above all else
and, after all, If Varsity can't beat
a Kermode strengthened Shores
team, what chance will they have
against their potential opponents
in the B.C. final, the powerful
Victoria Army team?
NOTICE—An Intra-Mural Committee meeting will.be held today
at 3:.°J. Intra-Mural representatives
are asked to meet in the Training
Room In the gym.
Bring in those cups!!
This is what we would have liked
to write regarding the Wednesday
game and the opportunity of doing Just this came so near, that
500 Varsity fans, who witnessed
the game, are still shaking their
collective heads about it.
No, Robertson didn't sink either
of those last two long shots. Both
came cloae, hitting the hoop or
back-board. In fact, aa Robertson
said afterwards in the dressing-
room (and he should know), the
first of his shots was dead on but,
being Just a mite too high, it grax-
ed the rafters just enough, to mark
the difference between defeat and
a possible win.
The final score waa Scores 39,
Varalty 37.
The next game in series, die
third game, will take place Saturday night In the VAC gym at 9:00
o'clock. The fourth game Is scheduled for the Varsity gym on Monday or Tuesday and the fifth game
(If necessary will be back In the
VAC gym on either Wednesday or
Thursday.-
The two main factors contributing to Varsity's defeat last Wednesday were (1.) Oeorge McConnell, and (2.) Shorea superiority
in snaffling rebounds.
The Shores took a 10-8 lead in
the first quarter, but the Thunderbirds, thanks to a spell of inactivity
on McConneU'a part took a 20-19
lead at half-time.
McConnell came back strong in
the third quarter, scoring eight
points to Varsity's five. Lawn and
Campbell also got baskets in this
session, but their attempts were
side-issues,
In the last canto, Varsity, led
by Barton, Sykes, Johnson, Robertson and Franklin got within
one point of Shores but then McConnell broke their hearts with
one of his "impossible" shots and
the game ended with Sandy Rob"
ertson's two very close long shots.

• WELL, THE ENGLISH RUGBY season is dead, for this
year. And furthermore a hangover from it has already
started to stink good and proper. The season was rudely interrupted early in the new year by the cold spell and never
got properly on its feet after that. It is true that the Tisdall
Cup and the Bell-Irving Cup series were run off fairly
smoothly, but the McKechnie Cup games had to be called off.
The showing that Victoria made in its game with
Vancouver definitely showed that it was an odds-on favorite
to retain the cup it won last year. Therefore, with the time
too short to encourage players and spectators to get behind
the games, it was decided that the best plan was to forget the
whole thing until next year.
Finals  In
Killop and Norma Ford held Peggy
in check and she was forced to
paaa the ball.
Both teams were continually,
called for steps but Vanity were
the chief offenders. Pro-Rec were
caught particularly in the last
quarter when they were trying to
catch Varalty. A total of twenty-
two fouls were called during the
game of which eighteen were
against Pro-Rec.

Students Should
Learn     These
Yells  By  Sat.
O   BILL   STEWART,   University
cheer leader, expresses his
pleasure to the students for their
response at the playoff games on
Saturday and Wednesday nights.
To those of you who will be attending,   Bill   suggests   that   you
learn a few of the yells which are
printed below for your benefit.

Yea, Varsity!
Last week we carried the report that three or four
fellows were to be brought up before the Discipline Commit"
tee for infractions of rules governing University athletes. It
might be well to explain what the mix-up is. The law sayi
that if any player wishes to play for an outside team he must
gain permission from the MAD first. The president of the
MAD is Lynn Sully and his signature must be on any letter
of permission before that player holding the letter can play
for the team he wishes.
It is therefore an offense to play for any outside team
against a University outfit. It is also an offense to lend University strip to players of another team when some forgetful
dope forgets to bring his own with which to play in a game.
The lack of sportsmanship of the players concerned is
further brought out by the fact that they turned out regularly
for practices when a chance of travelling with the team presented itself. Again, they have been very unsporting to say
that they have letters allowing them to play on teams other
that die Blue and Gold aggregations.       *
The time for reckoning for the bad boys is tonight. If
they have some satisfactory reasons and proof that they were
in their rights to act as they did, then we ask why have they
not come forward squarely with them long before now? They
knew that the rules were in the laws of the Alma Mater
Society, and that they had been enforced before in this yew's
session. Why did they not act decently and accordingly?

We don't blame you, Miss, for feeling dismayed.
We know you appreciate the time lost when a
erowd gets on with bills, half dollara and quarters
to be changed. If it weren't for others like yourself with exact fare ready, schedules would be
badly delayed.
By adopting the habit of having exact fare ready
and moving well inalde the car as soon as you
have paid your fare you can help ua give faster
service, help ua get important war workers and
other passengers to their destination aa quickly
