 Sweaters Feature
Of Arts Mixer
^ The first Arts Mixer of
the New Year will take
the form of a Sweater Dance
to which students of the
Aggie, Commerce and
Science faculties have been
specially invited to wear
their yellow, white and red
sweaters to compete with the
blue of the Artsmen on the
dance floor.
An additional attraction will be
the presence of the St. Martin's
basketball team who have promised to come to the Arts Mixer after
thelr exhibition game on Saturday.
"Judging from the popularity of
former mixers, why should there
be any change?" asked Sandy
Nash, as he announced that Sid
Poulton's orchestra will again sup
ply th. music, that there will be
refreshments available, and possibly,  free cokes.
Admission will be the same—
twenty-five cents a head.
Improvements for the future are
being contemplated by the committee. A new series of mixers
may be inaugurated in which
small groups will be abolished,
and name tags introduced, aiming
for a spirit of friendliness and true
mixing   among   the   students.
Tlie fund for tho radio has
swelled, and as soon as the needed
amount Is reached, the future admission fee may be a war-savings
stamp instead of the twenty-fivo
cents ln  cash.
The mixer Is to be held ln the-
Brock Hall, Saturday night, from
8:30  till   12.
Setting For
Junior Prom
9   At   a   meeting   of   the   Junior
Class executive yesterday it
was deckled to hold the Junior
Prom at tho Commodore Cabaret
Thursday, February 6, and not in
Brock Hall as announced by The
Ubyssey   last   issue.
This decision was arrived at
after considerable examination of
all factors entering Into the feasibility of using Brock Hall for the
big' event. Tlio committee, after
interviewing officials ln the Alma
Mater office, found that. It was
iigc'tist tlio rules of the building
to hold a cabaret style function
In the hall as no dining tables
aro allowed outside the dining
room. Even if this were permls-
sable. 1hore are not enough tables
In Brock Hall to accomodate the
Junior   Class   party.
All girls in Arts '-12 are cllrgible
to bo nominated for Prom Queen,
with final election taking place on
tho night cf the event at the
Members of thc Junior Class may
obtain tickets on presentation of
their student passes. All others
may buy tickets which will cost
J3.00   a   couple.
Further particulars of the Prom
Quoin cc ntest will appear in future    issues.
Probes Student
0 Students' Council will
soon present a ques-
tionaire to determine how
•many students contribute
wholly or in part to the financing of their university
Th-e action Ts being taken at the
request of Hon. G. M. Weir, Minister   of   Education.
Its purpese, stated Pres. L. S.
Kllnck in a letter to Students;
Council will be that 'Information
can be given In regard to finances
cf students at the university and
in reference to need for scholarships,   l.ui'sa-ies  and  student   aid.
Charlie Nash, council member
In charge cf tho quoslionairo,
pointed out to the Ubyssey that it
will be highly beneficial to students to answer the questions! as it
is only when tho need for student
aid Is realized that more scholarships will be given.
A draft cf the questionnaire is at
present being made up and will
appear in The Ubyssey as soon
as it is complrt-.d. Later Individual    copies   will    be   distributed.
Professor Ejects Co-Eds
From Male English Class
4)    Because one English professor  finds  feminine  pulchritude  too  much  of a  distraction while  he   is   lecturing,
about ten girls will be forced to miss one English 2 lecture
per week.
Some     twenty    girls,    who    had -™_™_^.™-^-s^-ss-s^________________i
been deluded Into believing that
they would hear an interesting
lecture, withered before the scathing glance cf Professor Wood at
one-lhlrty-two Wednesday afternoon.
"I am not accustomed to lecturing to young women In this
course," Professor Wood announced in his usual stentorian monotone. "Such young women will
therefore vacate tho room at
Strangely enough, not one young
woman protested on tho grounds
that she wished to bo considered
a young lady. Instead, the girls
moved out en masse blushing un-
ccmfortably ond accompanied by
loud hi sos and boos from tho
roomful of males, who were merely   trying to  hide   their heartbreak.

Queen's Journal
• Queen's University Is located in
Kingston, Ontario, commonly
called the "Limestone City," which
contains approximately 23,000
people, the city contains some
notable institutions. In addition
to Queen's there are I.M.C. and
the Kingston Penitentiary. Following in the tradition of the city,
practically all of Queen's buildings
are built of limestone. There are
almost thirty buildings, closely
grouped  around   the  campus.
This year Queen's is celebrating
its centennial year. It was founded ninety-nine years ago' by tho
Presbyterian Church In Canada,
affiliated with the Church of Scotland, which, following the Scotch
tradition, desired an educated Canadian ministry. The colleg- grew
slowly but surely, meeting and
overcoming great difficulties. In
1854 the Medical faculty was established, which, after surmounting serious financial difficulties,
has become one of the best in
In 1877, Dr. G. M. Grant became
Principal, and under his direction
the university Increased in size
and prestige. He knew Canada
from coast to coast, and had a
vision of what she might be. He
determined to Implement thla
vision by making Queen's the national university she has since become. Today 'every province of
Canada is substantially represented ln the student body, not to
mention those from the United
States   and   foreign   countries.
Science Department
e In 1893 the Ontario government
founded the Ontario School of
Mining. The school -jiew so rapidly that additional buildings had lo
be built. In 1916 It amalgamated
with the University to form tho
department of Applied Science.
Queen's is especially strong in its
Mining Department. There Is a.
very large number of students
from the mining districts of northern Ontario, and Queen's graduates are to be found whereever
mining is carried  on.
Queen's was founded by a
Church, but was dedicated to tho
nati< n. As it; constituency widened lis constitution wa:; widened,
until in 1912, as a result of an
amicable agreement between tho
Church and tho Trustees an act
was passed by the Dominion Parliament removing the last vestige
of denominational control. Tiro
legislraticn has grown from 665 in
1900 to 1800 in 1910. In addition
Queen's has the largest extramur-
■al department of any university
In Canada. Including the extramural department, there is a total
registration of over 4,000. The last
reminder of the old days is tho
Theloogical School, associated with
the university and the Presbyter-
Ian   Church.
"Queen's College colours we are
wearing once again"—that's the
way     the     college     song     begins.
•   Looking
Way back in September of 1931,
Harold King filled a long-felt want
when he composed a theme song for
Varsity,   "Hail   U.B.C."
E. Haydn Williams, director of the
Musical Society, of which King waa
a member, made a special orchestral
arrungement of the melody, the
v. ords and music of which were composed   by  King.
"Hall U.B.C." has a martial note,
with a swing well-suited to the rousing and spirited refrain. What the
"Stein Song" did for Maine and
"Hail, Stanford, Hail" for California,
"Hail U.B.C." has done for the University   of   British   Columbia.
Few students know that the song
has a verse as well as a chorus.
Here   it  is:
Wo   wear   the   blue   and   gold   of
the   victors,
We   are   the   men   of   the   U.B.C.
All   other   teams   acknowledge   us
Wo, are   strong   in   adversity.
There's    work    for    the    day    and
work   for   tho   morrow,
Wo   are   tho   ones   who'll   do   our
Shouting     in    joy    and    silent    in
Bravery   conquers   car..
There's red for Arts, gold for
Science and blue for Medicine,
and hence Queen's teams are just
as frequently referred to as Tricolour teams. The colours aro
strong ones and violent. They
stand out and fight with each
other, just as the faculties do, in
friendly rivalry, but they also
blend Into strong and enduring
fabric that Queen's. By the
ruling of the Alma Mater Society,
each freshman must wear all year
a ribbon of his faculty colour and
a tarn with a tassel of the same
Gaelic Influence
e The strong Scots flavor that
Queen's had at Its founding
has lasted to this day. It lingers
in the Gaelic names of buildings
and in the Gaelic words of the
yell. There is Ban Iigh Hall, Gordon House. 'Mucdonnell House.
Muir House, the women's residences. It expresses itself in tho
bagpipes of thc band and in the
freshman   tains.     The   yell  goes:
"Queen's!    Queen's!    Queen's!
Oil   thigh   na   Banrighinn  gu-
Cha    gheil!    Cha    gheil!    Clui
Literally    translated     it    proclaims
"The    house    of    learning    of    tho
Queen forever.   Won't  yield!  Won't
yield!   Won't   yield!"
"Queen's has atways had a very
strong college spirit, and supports
its football teams regardless of
whether they win or lose, whether
their chances are good or poor.
Even though Queen's might not
have had a good team this year,
students regret that the War has
taken   away   football.
"Queen's   college    cplours   we
are wearing once again,
Soiled as they are by thc battle
and  the  rain,
Yet   another   victory   to   wipe
away the stain •
So boys go ln and win."
That's the Queen's song, and it
express-js the Queen's spirit. The
worse the rain and the worse the
mud, the better they play. It is
sung to the tune of "John Brown's.
College Spirit
9 For the past eighty years the
Alma 'Mater Society has been
synonymous with "government of
the students, by the students, for
the students." It is probably the
most democratic government of its
kind on the continent. There is
faculty spirit in the elections, but- «
after election it is Queen's spirit.
Because il Is desired to keep tho
Queen's spirit, fraternities unforbidden at Queen's. Several
years ago. Queen's had a rugby
team of championship calibre, of
which several members belonged
to a fraternity. The players wore
tried before the Court, found
guilty, and at the expense of victory, were removed from the team.
Queen's is a national institution;
it is doing ils part in the national
emergency. It hos cancelled all
intercollegiate .sports, it has greatly enlarged tho C.O.T.C, it is
giving military training to all men
over 18, It has founded a War
Aid Commission, to which profits
from many campus activities go.
It is providing training for girls
in the spheres in which they may
be needed. Many undergraduates
did not return to colleg-, having
joined the armed forces. In tho
words of its Chancellor ut the recent convocation, "Queen's will
cany   on."
Letters to the Editor
Ed Note—This letter was mislaid after the Arts-Aggie Pep
Meet, but the subject matter still
Dear   Sir:
Why is it that the microphone
is in such a perilous position?
Whenever there Is a playful par-
ado across the stage or whenever
there Is a curtained stage, some-
nimble-wltted person must dive to
catch the falling mike.
In order to curtail any further-
damage to this valuable Instrument, by careless Viands or by the
smothering curtain, may I present
tlio following suggestion? That
the microphone be suspended from
tho  celling.
One can see little to hinder such
a change. A strong cord or cable
and a few additional articles would
enable the microphone to be regulated ln height for speakers or, if
necessary, completely removed by
providing a plug-In socket at the
microphone. The Idea of a plug-
In socket ls to allow the microphone to be completely removed
from the cable which may be
drawn  up  out  of  sight.
Surely, at our age, we must
know that folly cannot and must
not bo stopped. Realizing this
fact we must take protective
measures. Why not let the above
mentioned be one of more, many
more   protective   measures.
Yours philosophically,
An Inventive ARTSMAN.

• Next Wednesday is self-denial
day. Dorothy Hird and. Nancy
Carr, in charge of Women's War
Work at the University urge that
students make a greater effort
than ever to help the Red Cross.
There are more weeks in the
Spring term, and therefore more
chance to GIVE. This term instead
of a competition between faculties
for the largest donation, there will
will be a contest for first placo
amongst the different years.
Whito tins will be for first year
contributions, blue for second year,
yellow for third year, and red for
fourth year. Special tins will lie
put out for fifth year science, education  and  graduate students.
"Girls in charge of tins MUST
be on time to look after them,"
emphasized   Dorothy   Hird.

Junior League Will Bring
Cabaret To Inter Frat Ball
^    The gleaming dazzle of
a line of shapely kicking limbs will form lusty
fare for Varsity students
when Junior League presents their famous footlight
parade at the Greek Letter
Red Cross Ball at the Commodore, January 24.
The floorshow will be on exact
replica of that put on by the
Junior League at their Cabaret
last fall. At that time thc Commodore was jammed to tho doorways with 1300 paying patrons
two nights In a row.
Anxious to aid the Red Cross,
Varsity co-eds will shoulder half
of the four dollar admission charge-
to the function. Already every
sorority girl on the campus has
pledged herself to purchase a two
dollar ticket to the affair.
A publicity committee under
the chairmanship of Audrey Reifel
and Bob Parkinson is already
laying plans for a city-wide
campaign   to   popularize   the   Ball.
Many and varied are the stunts
planned for the enjoyment of undergraduates In the ensuing
The amount tuned over to the-
Red Cross is expected to reach
four   figures.
Th-- affair will be held in conjunction with similar functions
throughout   the   continent.

This lone woman is Edna Anita
Clarke, 19, 4612 West 11th Avenue,
who hails from Pentlcton. She
has the distinction of being the
only woman enrolled in the engineering   faculty   at   U.B.C.
Edna has big ideas about the
abilities of the fairer sex. Her
own ambition ls to become an aeronautical  engineer.
She sees nothing ot all unusual
about her chosen profession, and
declares that she's "just like any
other girl." Edna's chief hobby
is  photography.
Edna plans to remain at U.B.C.
until she receives her B.A.Sc. degree, and then go on to another
university for post graduate work
ln aeronautics.
Dr. J. N. Finlayson, Dean of
Applied Science, reports that opportunities exist for wem-en ln all
branches   of   engineering.
"Although women naturally find
the field a bit limited because
they are not suited to field and
shop work, they can find excellent
opportunities In designing, special

Law Society-
May Revive
• Under tho leadership of Arthur
Fouks, president of the Parliamentary Forum, an attempt is
being made to revive the Law Society on this Campus.
The reincarnated Law Society is
to have an aim and a purpose.
First, to work for the establishment
of a law faculty at this university.
Second, to establish a connection
between those students intending to
take up law and the law profession in tho city. The purpose would
be to ensure a position for members on graduating from university.

.   Greeks Ball
The Greeks Ball in aid of the Alma
Mater Red Cross Fund promises to be one
of the largest affairs ever held by U.B.C.
Besides the fraternities and sororities, other
large organizations on the campus are cooperating enthusiastically. Several other
universities are holding dances on the same
or a close date for the same purpose so that
the idea has a national and an international
There has been some criticism of the
decision to hold the ball downtown Instead
of in Brock Hall. Arguments advanced were
that Brock Hall costs only a negligible
amount, that the Varsity Dance orchestra
had offered its services free, and that students would support a dance on the campus
probably even more than a dance downtown.
It was decided to hold the dance downtown though because the fraternities and
sororities believed that they could! attract
more of their alumni and more outsiders to
a dance there than to one on the campus.
One of the chief arguments against using
Brock Hall lounge for large formal functions is that it cannot be fitted out in cabaret
style. An ordinary dance hall is not quite
suited to serving refreshments to a large
number of people nor to the presentation of
a revue or floor show.
If all major formal functions continue to
be held off the campus, it might be a good
idea for the Council to follow one suggestion that has been brought up lately, namely
to make it possible for the lounge of Brock
Hall to be turned into a cabaret. The tables
need not be expensive ones, in fact they
could be of a folding type that could easily
be put away between formal dances.
We hope that the executive in charge of
the Greeks Ball has considered carefully
where they will be able to raise the maximum amount for the Red Cross without
putting too much weight on the maximum
enjoyment of those who go to the ball. They
need not thing that no one is willing to make
a sacrifice because many are only waiting
for the opportunity.
The more co-operation all societies and
Individuals give this ball, the more it will
be a true University effort. It is being sponsored by the fraternities and the sororities,
and its success or failure will depend ultimately upon them, but everyone is invited
to help and to go to the ball itself.
In this campaign as in others that will
come up during the rest of the term, we
have an opportunity to show something of
that college spirit which we never seem to
have in ordinary years, but which we always
display when the need arises.
Open At Night
Brock Hall is open in the evenings at
last after prolonged negotiations between
the Students' Council and the Board of
Governors. It will remain open only if the
clubs that asked for the use of it in the evenings, and the students at large, make use
of it. Otherwise there is no point in paying
a proctor for the extra time, and the Board
will hardly do so if the building is empty,
every evening.
There is little doubt that Saturday afternoons ln Brock Hall will be very popular;
but the evenings may not be so for awhile
until clubs an individuals get used to its
being open. Then it will become the true
centre of student life' it was intended to be.
In the meanwhile, now that all the advantages of the building are available, everyone should try to make full use of it.
By Peran
A train full of students homeward
bound for Christmas spells fun and merriment, and thereby hangs many a tale. This
year was no exception, and as few Vancouver dwellers know anything about such a
trip home, this is what it is like:
On the last day of exams, we packed
hurriedly and met downtown for an afternoon sBow. The afternoon also included
last minute Christmas shopping followed by
a dinner in one of the big restaurants where
we all sat at one long table. After the meal,
fingerbowls were observed with interest.
Then down to the stctliun to catch the
train. We were a little late getting there
so that we had to walk through four coaches
till we found seats. When luggage was
stowed away, we wandered out on the platform till the train started with a jerk and
we caught it on the run.
Soon some of the boys began to get
out their fiddles and there was the sound
of an accordion or two from one end of the
car. We all gathered around, hanging over
the backs of seats and sitting on the arms.
The first songs were Varsity songs, but then
we branched out to all the old and new
familiar songs. When we got tired of singing the violins kept going.
Caviar, Caviar
I remember two or three sciencemen
teaching a little girl of some eight years the
engineers' songs. They had to change a few
words here and there, and sometimes it
spoiled the rhyme.
Late in the night, everyone settled down
in the least uncomfortable positions as the
lights were turned down. Soon there was
no sound save for the rattle of the coaches,
the lonely howls of the locomotives, and the
occasional talking of some boy and girl in a
dark corner.
Although some of the boys called me a
plutocrat, I had breakfast in the dining car.
I can never resist the mixture of porridge
and cream and wild scenery that is breakfast on the train. Others spread out their
boxes of sandwiches and fruit and enjoyed
a substantial meal.
Usually the day following the first night
out is much quieter than the preceding evening. This day was no exception. Some
rend magazines and papers (I even saw
someone looking at a textbook), and some
of us began to get to know the girls from
the Interior who attend University, Normal
School, or the big hospitals, and who were
also going home for the holidays.
For a while in the afternoon as we
rolled swiftly down a small river valley, we
had some more music from the violins. The
valley was filled with snow, but the little
river was not yet frozen over. Once we
saw a deer standing in the water, and farther along, a coyote. The sun was glancing
down through the bare trees on the hillsides, covering small knolls -with light between the blue shadows of the hollows.
As the shadows closed down gradually
over the hills and valleys, we knew we were
getting near home. The last two hours were
the longest,. but out between the coaches,
we could see the lake glimmering far below
us between snow-clad mountains.
We put on our coats, gathered our belongings together, and at last as the train
whistled for the station, piled out towards
the end of the car.
Out on the platform, with swarms of
people everywhere, we said hello and goodbye. I saw one lad done out of his due.
He was met by his mother and father at the
station so that he was unable to say goodbye properly to two young nurses he had
become fairly well acquainted with on the
way home. The nurses were going a little
distance farther by train. Meanwhile, another boy filled the gap and received the
goodbye kisses.
At any rate we were home and it was
Christmas time and we were happy.
Student Management
The trouble is that the holidays were
not long enough, and now we are back at
the grindstone again.
Lately one thing has been bothering me.
Perhaps if I get it off my chest, someone
will clear it up for me.
The news that Brock Hall will be kept
open at night and on Saturday afternoons
was certainly welcome news. It is about
time something was done in that respect.
But there has been other rather disquieting news. The students seem to have lost
control of the management of their own
building, perhaps I should say buildings, because this business includes the Gymnasium
and the Stadium. When an organization
applies for the use of the lounge in Brock
Hall, the application goes to the Committee
for the Administration of the Brock Memorial Building, not to the Students' Council.
The revenues from all three buildings go
into a- fund administered by the Bursar,

The scheme was so successful
that there was a sell-out performance.
e Sometime ago a group of second
yea-" sclencemen invaded a
meeting of the Psychology Club.
It was rumored that they intended
to take things over and liven up
the meeting and the campus. This
seemed like true engineering spirit; th. faculty and the seniors
nodded in approval for they felt
that they could then leave McGiil
with seren'- minds and calm hearts.
Th. engineers would continue to
show how meetings should be run
and how Arts buildings should be
Alas . . . the senior and the faculty are disillusioned. They will
leave the university, broken in
spirit and haunted with visions of
the liingineering building of the
future—peopled with long-haired
intellectuals, reminiscent of psych
professors, who would never think
of peering or tearing chairs apart.
Why this destruction of hope?
. . . the engineers went to that
meeting not to take it over, not
to break it up, not as a mere escapade, but because they wanted
to  learn  something  of  psychology.

Wallflowers' Club
• You too can be a wallflower
seems to be the motto of the
newly organised Wallflowers'
Club at St. George Williams College in Montreal. Formed as a
knitting circle "for frustrated females who are consistently undated, the club has a constitution,
a  president,  but  little  opposition.
A co-ed is eligible for membership if she did not receive a bid
to the last campus dance. To
remain a member she must refuse
all subsequent bids or else pay a
nickel fine for each affair she
attends or has. A boy friend at
college makes the girl ineligible;
but sh_ may have one or two outside of college as long os he or
they do not take her to college
Married women, who are considered frustrated, are eligible for
honorary membership and the
freshette honorary is tolerated because   her  hubble   goes  to  McGiil.
The halo of the constitution
reads: Should any member contemplate marriage the prospective
brldgegroom must be approved by
the executive. If disapproved,
then the girl must renounce any
claims on the male or else withdraw  from   the  club.

hear tho now records at tho next
two Monday recitals in Brock Hall.
These record concerts will be at
lunch hour on January 13 and 20,
the former featuring the remarkably modern "Fantastic Symphony" of Berlioz. Additional
recordings are to be added shortly.
Thc Berlioz: composition is performed by the Paris Conservatory
under the direction of Bruno
Walther, and is twelve sides long.
The records to bo heard the following week are Lalo's "Spanish
Symphony", Walton's "Crown Imperial", and two guitar solos by
Juan   Ponce.
Lalo's popular "Spanish Symphony" ls conducted by the Rumanian composer Enesco, with
Menuhln as violin soloist. Those
who recall the extinct ballad "Tip-
1-tln" will enjoy its coxinter-
subject when they listen to the
Spanish Symphony  on January 20.
A noteworthy piece of British
music is William Walton's "Crown
Imperial", a march composed for
the coronation of George VI in
1937. West Vancouver please note:
Mr. Walton's brother is one of
your contented settlers. "Crown
Imperial" is played by the B.B.C.
Orchestra directed by Sir Adrian
The other recording contains
two guitar solos by Juan Ponce,
a Spanish composer of about 1500,
who is noted *or his connection
with the much-used ".olia" melody that originated in a Spanish
dance of the same name. The
numbers on this record are
"Mazurka" and "Little Waltz".
Andres Segovia, the famous guitar
soloist,   is  performer.

•    Editor, the Uby«.scy:
Bus rides are a cammonplaee
habit to the average Varsity student, yet there is much to learn,
if one shares a seat with, for instance, a member of the Students'
Council, Most students are aware
by this time of' the existence and
purpose of this Council, yet how
many are willing to give it their
active, enthusiastic support? Obviously very few.
Most students are also aware of
Brock Hall, and of the fact that it
was erected by student funds, yet
how many are interested in active
student control of this building?
Again very few. These two facts
are linked ln that, recently, with
very little objection from anyone
but the Students' Council, the administration of Brock Hall wns
assumed , by the Administration
Board of the University. As a result, the operation of Brock Hall
ls not only inefficient, but also expensive. Yet how many students
have attempted, actively, to do
anything about iti? Obviously very
few, the reason being either that
"it's useless" or "too much bother"
to  try.
It is far easier to let the Students' Council receive not only
blame, and criticism, but also such
terms aa "rotten", "silly", or even
"smelly". Yet do the people who
apply these terms believe that the
council can exert authority merely
by dint of being elected? The
right to authority is the capacity to
exert it. The Students' Council
will only have that capacity when
the student body shows itself aa
eager to support as to depreciate
its council; when the student body
is willing to demonstrate that it has
elected its council to expres in no
uncertain terms, the will of the
student   majority.
To make our council powerful,

• Of   Interest  to  the  Art   Discussion Group and  others will be
the announcement that there will
bo an exhibition of drawings and
paintings by I.lr. G. L. Shadbolt
at the Vancouver Art Gallery on
January 14 to 26.
Last year Mr. Shadbolt gave an
exhibition at the university in the
Faculty room of the library which
caused considerable interest, and
ho intends to ask permission to
give another one in Brock Hull
later   in  tho   year.
support it in all of its actions. We
can get from our organization no
moro than we give to it. It is
therefore logical, that as something
must be done to increase stucienl
satisfaction with Brock Hall, we,
tho students, can do it through our
council,   and  we  must   do  It.
Whether this state of affairs has been
brought about because the Board of Governors believed that the students were incompetent to look after their own buildings,
or not, is hard to say. I know that the
buildings will be administered well under
the present set-up — very few people can
have any complaints so far — but I do oU-
ject to the principle of the thing. These
buildings would certainly not now be on
the campus if it had not been for the energy
and foresight of succeeding student governments. In combination with their campaigns
for these buildings, the Council built up
student government to a high level, but the
core seems to have disappeared leaving an
empty shell. So far as I can see, student
government seems to have more name than
power just at present.
If thc rumours going around about, these
things are true, somebody should get btisy
and do something about it. Friday, January 10th, 1941

*$**+» «  University  Football  Star Had  Fun  At Rose  Bowl  Classic
e^    I went to the game with a chip on my shoulder.
"It better be good," I said. For four dollars and fifty
cents it has to be good."
The first sight of the Rose Bowl impressed me; but only
just a little. Ninety thousand people sitting around a bowl
to watch two college teams play football — somebody is sure
making money out of this bunch of suckers.
#    But from the first kickoff, I kind of forgot that I had a
chip on my shoulder.    I watched Nebraska run back the
kick to the Indian 48 yard line, and seven plays later boom
over for a touchdown.    This made me a little excited, even
if it did mean that I owed my friend two-bits.
However by the time that the Stanford team had tied
the game up I was so excited that I was making as much noise
as the blonde in front of me.
That's something that we never see up here. Real college spirit and mixed with it a lot of good old liquid spirits,
that's what impressed me most.
I have seen better football games, but, when you are
surrounded with a hundred thousand yelling people, cheering co-eds, bands and organized cheers and above all beautiful drum majorettes, well who wouldn't kiss the red head
next to you when your team scored, or if either team scored?
That's what amazed me most down here, the way that
everybody goes for football. For example, I took a girl to a
game in Vancouver. She was a nice looking intelligent kid
and smart as a whip.
"How long," she asked, "does it take for a halfback to
become a fullback?"
0 In the South it's different. WE, all three of us took out
Shirley (Blanchard 7-2764) to a game. She's pretty,
and not very dumb. After five plays she said to me, "Watch
how Albert throws a flying body block on the left end on
the double reverse."
Next to cooking, girls, a knowledge of football is the
best drawing card that I know.
Well, thanks to Norman and Gordie, we decided to go
to the game. Thanks to .Bill, we got tickets. And thanks to
Jack and his uncle, we met Betty Grable and Alice Faye.
And thanks that's the most important, to the red-head's husband from whom I got this black eye.

squeezed out a close 45—43 win over the Adanacs Wednesday
night in a rough and tough battle at the campus gym.
Doug  Pedlow   and  Jack  Ryan  will  not  play   in  future
league games this year because of low marks and Don Liv-
instone because of family reasons.
But for their last appearance on
the basketball floor, Pecllow, General Ryan and Don Livingston put
on   a   real   show   and   helped   lead
tire teem to its eighth straight win
1 y scoring between them a total
of  20  points.
Pidlcw was the Individual star
an 1 top score"' of the night with
13   peiints   to   his   credit.
S.arting slew, tho Thunderbirds
didn't look like tho team they
\v•-.(.-   before-   the   holidays.
See-Saw battle
The lead see-sawed back and
forth with neither tcam having
tlie superior play. Barton, displaying his usual left-handed
deftnes', was hurt in the first
quart-er and was out till Ihe second half. Sandy Hay and Flynn
wc:o good with long shots and
under the  basket.
By the half time whistle the
Varsity squad were out in front
by the slim margin cf two points,
score   being   23-21.
With the start of th-e second
half the winners put on a drive
that too'.: them ahead till the end
of the game and the final score of
45-43. Hut the game wasn't won
that easily. The lead that Varsity
held was a small one ond although
never overcome was held on to in
a    desperate    manner.
The fourth quarter was a really
rough svssion as tho New Westminsters put on the pressure in
an attempt to overtake the Blue
and Gold. First Pat Flynn was
sent off on penalties, and then
Don  Livingston.
Playing without Jim Scott and
Norm Armstrong the winners
w-ere not the impressive team they
wore before thc New Year. And
with the loss of Ryan and Pedlow
tho squad is going to be short-
handed in a desperate way, for
the next league.game Is January
15   against   Angelus.
However, for the exhibition
games today when the team plays
Ihe Harlem Hoopers all the players
will   bo   on  hand.
Ryan (2>, Pedlow (15), Matheson (9), Flynn (8), Barton (6),
Livingston   (3),  Johnson   (2),  Hay.
I like exams
I think they're fun
I   never  flunk  a
Single   one;
I'm  the Professor.
