Conference Committee to Select

Any campiis organization has the privilege of sending a dole-
gate to the National Conference of Canadian University Students,
C.S.A. officials announced this week. Delegates selected in this
manner, however, will not come under the special cut rate obtained
for C.S.A. official delegates.

For years and years and years, In
faot, aa long as mortal man oan remember, there has been bitter rivalry and unrelenting hatred between
the scientist and the soholar, between the engineer and the Arts-
man. "What oan you do with philosophy?" shouts the engineer. "Can
you eat it?" To which the student
of the liberal (and conservative)
arts  replies,  "My  dear  ohap  ..."
And so the hate goea on. The
rough, tough and virile men of the
engineering schools have grown
beards and drowned them in ale;
they have restricted woman's function to that of a week-end companion; they have taught their freshmen to be gnarled creatures of nature, which knowa no law but the
law of the Jungle and Bernoullli's
theorem. Finally, it was too much,
and the Artsmen of the Unlveralty
of British Columbia formulated a

by the delegate, partly by the olub.
C.S.A. exeoutive members urge that
all students and all olubs interested
in the conference, and in sending a
delegation, should purchass a conference outline. These oan be obtained from any member of the
C.S.A. exeoutive for ten oents.
At least four students will go to
the oonferenoo from U.B.C. as offlolal O.8.A. delegates. If negotiations
now under way with eastern officials
reaeh suooessful completion, the delegation will be raised to seven.
The delegation will be chosen by
a Central Conferenoe Committee
representative of the Faoulty, Student Counoil, and all Campus organisations.
The 19 members of the Committee
are.aa follows:
Dr. W. O. Blaok, Professor F. H.
Soward, Darrell Braldwood, Shellah
Hutchinson, Val BJarnaon, Bob Bonner, Ruth Wilson, Sandy Nash, Theodora Combolos, Len Zink, Emily Fraser, Russel Palmar, Arohle Rain, Bill
McLellan, Charlie Nash, Doris Pratt,
Pierre Berton, Basil Robinson and
Jobn Oarrett.
Cost to C.S.A. delegates will be 36
dollars. If tbe delegation is raised to
seven, the cost will be SB dollars.
C.S.A. officials voiced trie hope
that part of the delegates' expenses
would be defrayed by the Students'
Council. The offlelal C.S.A. delegation will be announoed early next
C.S.A. And N.F.C.U.S.
To Exchange Delegates
TORONTO, Nov. 80 (CUP)—The
National Exeoutive of the Canadian
Student Assembly announced in
Kingston the acceptance of the Invitation of the National Federation of
Canadian University Students to
send two delegates to the N.F.C.U.S.
National Conferenoe. They will send
one Frenoh speaking delegate and
one English delegate.
A brief la now being prepared on
methoda of oo-operatlon between the
two conferenoea. There waa a possibility that the C.S.A. might invite
the N.F.C.U.S. to hold their conference at St. Anne de Bellevue, Quebec, where the 3rd National Conference of Canadian University Studenta is being held. This would enable an exchange of delegates between the two conferences.

Democracy Has
Stood The Test
Says Irving
"The future of democracy ia not
hopeless, but on the contrary very
promising," Profeaaor J. A. Irving
of the Department of Philoaophy
and Paychology, told membera of the
Canadian Student Assembly at a
noon hour meeting in Applied Science   100  last  Tuesday.
Claiming that where democracy
had survived, it was far from safe,
and that democracy had atood the
greatest test after the laat World
War, he traced the decline and
growth of democracy In post-war
"But democracy  has  not  gone  under" he told his listeners. "Driven to
ita   laat  defenses,   it  has   rallied   and
reformed  its  lines."
The apeaker stressed the need for
educated leadera to guide the fortunes of democracy in the future
and urged his listeners to study the
social sciences very carefully with a
view to discovering future changes
in democracy. He gave it aa hla
opinion that college studenta should
view democracy in an educated
rather than an emotional manner.

Otherwise Constitutions Will Be Revoked
Following a motion adopted by the Major Executive of the

revoked unless they can show reasons for continued operation,
announced Darrell Braidwood, L.S.E. president yesterday.
The cluba affected are: Olee Club,
Radio Operatora' Club, Arts Club,
Navigations Club, Modern Muslo Appreciation Club, Political Discussions
Club, Oerman Club and Forestry

"Inactive olubs should not exist
as there Is too muoh duplication In
the present set up," said Braldwood.
"Under existing oondltlons L.S.B. ia
a diverse and unwieldy body embracing 48 olubs. Consolidation
would permit more efficiency."
With a view to a revision of the
L.S.E. constitution so as to render
more power to the president and the

The Canadian Football season came to a climactic close Inst
Saturday as the Thunderbirds vanquished the Victoria Reveller's
team. The question of Varsity's ability to maintain an unblemished
record throughout the entire season had been answered once and
for all.
An undefeated team is not a common sight on tho West Coast,
and that Varsity should be the first Canadian Football team to
set such a record is something to make this Campus justly proud.
All through the season the players, the manager, and his assistants worked hard for the glory of their University, and succeeded
in impressive manner in reaching their mark of 100%.
No small share of the honours must be given to Maury Van
Vliet, coach of the football squad. His patient efforts, and technical
skill and brilliance produced the invincible team. The University
is fortunate in having such an able Director of Athletics.
The subsidiary organizations whose labours went to make the
various games successful have earned the praise of the student
body, the Mamooks, the Varsity Band, the Trainers' Club, and so
on ad infinitum.
In brief, the Seaforth's Trophy, the Lipton Cup, and the
Hardy Cup are in the hands of the University of B.C. No other
team was able to defeat the Thunderbirds in mortal combat during
the tournament of 1939.
This is definitely a good thing!
The student body of this University has frequently been criticized for its apathetic attitude towards the various functions and
meetings sponsored by the Alma Mater Society, and in addition
for its slovenly treatment of the buildings and campus in general.
It would appear that at the root of this quaint behaviour there
must be a serious lack of responsibility on the part of the averoge
student. There is none of that feeling which typifies so many
universities in their activity, and which produced the Point Grey
Campus for this institution.
Many have suggested that the average mental age of the university students of today must have decreased during the
last few years. Perhnps this assertion is true but nt the same
time n mon or woman who has passed through the various years
of High Sohool, and who has finally arrived at a university should
have attained a more profound and matured conception of democracy—if that word is not too hackneyed—than is exhibited by the
average on the campus.
What student returns in the evening of his or her parents'
dwelling and there distributes garbage in as liberal quantities as
in the Caf? What student would freely discard sheets of wax-
paper, or dirty lunch bags on the front lawn of his house? What
student would leave soda-pop bottles throughout the house?
The nnswors to these questions are comparatively obvious, yet
the student's personality apparently alters radically from the time
that he or she leaves home and arrives on the campus.
Members of the Faculty of this University hnve voiced objections to the condition of the Cafeteria at lunch hours, and have
been nmossed at the disgusting treatment of the campus itself. But
they do not wish to speak to the student body in the same manner
«s to a group of school children. They cannot dock a university
man marks for being untidy and irresponsible. Tn short they con-
not lie wet-nurses tf) the members of the Alma Mater Society.
But on the other hand it appears to faculty member and outsider alike that the students are in dire need of wet nurses, governesses,  mo'rons or some other similar guardian.
The .Minn Mater Society has gained for its members a name
which carries some prestige, sonic dignity. Next term will see the
opening of another 'student-built' structure. Tint what will the
students do to that  building?
It is loo discouraging to dwell long upon the thought that the
Brock Memorial Building will hove to suft'er the some treatment
■it the hands of the students as has the Caf, or some of the common-
'" "adit ions govern behaviour in most of these celebrated
haunts, and it seems to be a custom of some age to keep the Caf
in as filthy a condition as is humanly possible. This tradition must
go, and in its place built another, a desire to care for our buildings
with the attention of an owner.
Let a new sense of pride nnd responsibility be the tradition
of this campus! T.et every student take to himself the task of
keeping this University of ours in perfect shape! Bet a little mature wisdom govern our actions in the future, thot the Brock Memorial Building may escape the injuries done elsewhere!

la inborne or acquired through social

the fact that some people have displayed a marked aptitude for democracy   while   othera   have   not.

favor of the theory of acquired political  aptitudes."

Chapter I.
Belching erotioly, Chang wriggled
out of the putrid slime of the Library oess-pool. Clutching a ooat
hangar he drew himself out of the
foul oavern and stood erect In the
men's cloak-room and softly breathed a curse. Waiting until his stealthy
cohorts were marshalled behind him,
he turned to scan the dismal reaches
of the room and suddenly spied Lowland Running, Chief Keeper of the
Prlvvy Cage, crouching in wait for
Slavering with rage, Chang ominously cackled and drew his gleaming
wing-Jing from a slit in his chest,
and rallying his gang, set off with
bloody cries In mad pursuit. Emitting a dolorous shriek, Sir Lowland
Running (Bart.) scampered up the
stairs and took pitiful refuge in the
stacks. But hla flight was ln vain.
Suey's cohorts .completing a smart
outflanking movement (Manual of
Field Manoeuvres Chap. XVII Section 328), bore down upon their dribbling prey. The foremost of the ruffians prepared to Impale him at
onoe, but Chang appearing from the
rear, halted them with an impressive gesture.
"Art thou not the snivelling knave
that questions our unalienable right
to thieve and plunder, art thou not
the linen-cheeked scullion that
sneaks about these halls spying on
innocent bystanders, and polluting
the Library with thy infectious presence? Out with thy tongue, my lily-
livered wretch!—Take thy face
"... To work, my skunks! There
ls much booty here! Pillage and pilfer with all your cunning!"
Chang's followers were not slow
ln obeying his commands. The stacks
echoed and re-echoed to the gang*a
hoarse and frenzied screams of
vicious delight. But Chang soon
grew Impatient, and muttering obscenely, slank off alone.
Chapter II.
Slithering past the reference desk,
Chang snatched up a copy of the
Ubyssey and quickly skimming its
headlines noted an announcement
proclaiming freedom for the oppressed and declaring an extraordinary meeting of the S.U.C. Ripping
the notice out of the paper, he slid
lt into a recess of his sweaty cloak,
and hastened with pent-up emotions
to the Kampus Kremlin.

Silence reigned in the massive
room. High on his dais of worm-
eaten wood sat Ervynm M. Sadiv.
Peoples' Commissar for Social Amelioration and Advancement, Chief
of the Protocol of the Commissariat-
General for Arty and Literary Affairs, Director of the Academic
Workers Komlntorn, General Repre-
scnative of the Commission for Proletarian Political Philosophy, Member of the International Committeo
of Student Soviets, Liquidator-ln-
Chlef  of nil  World   Conflicts.
Lifting himself ponderously. Sadiv
raised his clenched fist on high, and
stood Imposing before the great
blood-red canopy embroidered with
the hammer and sickle by tho Female Executive of the Committee for
Perpetrating the Five Year Plan of
the Society for the Prevention of
Demagogic Propaganda.
Facing the sea of strained and
eager faces, Sadiv exhorted them
vigorously. Down crashed the massive fist. "Students," he exclaimed,
as the reverberations of his down
descending paw thundered through
the room, "Students of the World,
Tho door swung open silently and
Chang peered into the room. Sadiv
swung to face him. As the Commissar pointed hiB finger accusingly at
the Intruder, his voice trembled with
passion and he exploded in fury:
"Hah! A wrecker! A saboteur!—
Seize him, comrades, liquidate him,
down with the tyrant! All power to
the Soviets!" Field Marshall Talc-
enuff sprang up and, giving the Fascist salute, goose-stepped with his
band of cossacks in pursuit of
Chang. But Suey did not tremble.
Fearlessly confronting his attackers,
he tinned in anger to the dais, exclaiming: "For how much longer,
O Sadiv, wilt thou abuse our

Judging from recent events, notably the Indignant and righteous wrath
of those persons criticised in the
columns of this paper, I am foroed
to conclude that where the shoe fits
tightest the soul rebels loudest.
In attempting to show why they
should not be 'panned' these Innocent people defend themselves and
their organisations on the grounds
that they have accomplished something.
They have accomplished . . . something.
Is one to assume, then, that any
Individual, any organisation should
not be criticised, solely beoause he
or lt has accomplished something?
Is one to assume that any Individual, any organisation ls justified In
sitting back ln retrospective glory
and smugly saying: "We have accomplished something; therefore, we
aro unimpeachable; therefore, we
are good."
Evidently certain persona on this
campus would have us believe so.
It is good :.r the vanity to rest
on one's laurels. Obviously, however,
It Is better to forget the laurels
earned; It la better to seek other
methods of service, other methods
of achievement and contribution.
A football star may be a star for
a 'season. To the papers and the
sports writers he may be good
'copy'; but unless he relies on his
own abilities the next season he will
not be THE star. He will be just
another football player—in some
cases an ex-star.
In this competitive world It ls
foolish and suicidal for any individual or organisation to rest on his- or
Its record. It ls about time that certain olubs on this campua and their
presidents realised this.
Certain students on this campus
have almost oonvinced me that a
columnist should amuse and entertain. They would have me believe
that he should utter nebulous half-
truths ; soul-rendering platitudes and
commendable lies rather than blunt,
frank criticisms.
Is it possible that these individuals
fear criticism? Is it possible that
they fear the results of criticism?
Over in Germany a gentleman
named Adolf Hitler 'liquidates' his
critics because! it is said) he fears
the probable results. Perhaps certain
students on this campus would like
to liquidate their critics for the same
These same students would be justified, I believe, ln discounting the
usefulness of any columnist who
wrote merely to amuse. On the other
hand they would not be justified in
discounting the usefulness or sincerity of either myself or The Mortar Board who have raised their
wrath  by  our  frank  comments.
A columnist, I claim, should convey his impressions of campus life,
campus activities, and all events pertaining to universities or university
life. In a broader sense he should
discuss those phases of life definitely appealing to his audience.
But in no case should he cater to
this audience. If he does  so then  he
through the air. Shrieking with dismay, the bolshevik horde fled. Chang
neatly scalped throe hundred as they
.'.ar.ed out. Then turning on Sadiv,
he slew the dictator with one mighty
thrust. The corpse crumpled at his
feet, and Chang, cackling exuberantly,  strode  off  in  triumph.
The rising tide of bolshovlsm had

Smarting from the effects of being
held to a tie by the lowly South Burnaby eleven last week, Varsity round-
ballers will be in fighting mood this
Saturday when they entertain Olty
Folice on the campus at 3.16.
Tho Coppers are a tough team to
beat at any time and last time the
two squads met at Powell St., the
result was a 1-1 tie. The collegians
are hoping that they won't repeat the
form ahown last Saturday on the Upper oampus field when they almost
lost to the South Burnaby entry.
Oolng Into an early lead by virtue
of Stew Roach's goal on a beautiful
PhU Temoln oross after a right wing
movement, tho Hitchensmen found
themselves down 3-1 within another
IB minutes. Temoln, however, got that
ono baok when ho blasted in a rebound to put the teams on even terms,
only to aee the play range to the
other end where Barwlse put the
visitor ahead with a first-timer.
Half-time saw the soore 8-8, aad
It waan't until 5 minutes before the
flnlah the Temoln laid another pass
across the goalmouth and Basil
Robinson walked It Into the net.
In aU probabUity the same line-up
will oppose the Policemen tomorrow.
Temoln and Roblnaon backed up by
Doug Todd form a powerful combination on the right, while the left wing
only needs a Uttle more shaking down
to beoome a threat.
The usually atrong defense waa Incredibly dlthery laat week, but lt may
have been the effect of playing on an
unfamUlar ground.
The UB.C. team will oppose Co-
lumblas at Powell Street at 2.1S and
hope to break Into the win column.
They will have their best line-up out,
aa Swelnson ls no longer under the
weather, and Manager Eldrldge figures he really has an effective combination.

Editor-in-Chief, the Ubyssey,
University of British Columbia.
Dear Sir:
In spite of Maury Van Vliet's
efforts to make at least a fighting
club, If not a winning one, the Senior
"A* basketball team has stubbornly
refused to follow his Instructions
and have no idea of teamwork.
Apparently, the team feels lt contains an aggregation of ten shooting
(?) stars.
It Is rumored that the senior "A"
team is this year's Senior "B" farm
team, but after Wednesday night's
disgraceful exhibition of so-called
basketball, the Senior "B" team refuses to aooept them as a farm
The Senior "B" Team demands a
showdown. It challenges the Senior
"A" team to a sudden death game to
decide the supremacy of Its basketball team on this campus, for the
right to represent the University ln
the Intercity games.
Moreover, any team whioh has
been touted, at the beginning of the
season, as the team to beat in the
League and then bogs down disgustingly in its games should never be
allowed to go on the annual trip in
January. If the Senior B team wins
from the Senior A team, it will naturally take this trip and also take
the place on the campus of this ao-
laughlngly-called a "team."
We dare them to accept this challenge,  and  If they do,  let  them  contact   me   for   a   playoff  date,   preferably next Wedneaday noon.
Yours  truly,
Manager, Senior "B"
Baaketball Team.
P.S.—Thla   la   the   flrat   year   that   a

Carey's Job of picking the "A" team
was a very enjoyable one. Material
from three Varsity Squads, former
Wonder Team stars, and several ex-
grldders all turned out for practice
this week, from which excellent group
of players Carey has chosen twenty-
one men as possible participants In
tomorrow's game against the Victoria
aggregation at the Stadium.
Jim Harmer and Hank stradlottl
will discard their football raiment for

Ranjl Mattu who was to have figured
in the pack, will be out with a pulled
tendon. Last year's captain, strat
Leggat, although back on the oampua,
Is as yet undecided whether to play
or not.
The campusmen definitely need a
win In this their eeeond MoKeohnle
tilt of the season, for a loss would
put them ln a very bad position
with very little ehanee to capture
the cup. So they will be putting
their beet foot forward to defeat
the powerful group from across the
Victoria mmmttx* to be following
much the same principle as the students, featuring many of the Revellers in the line-up. The Island men
will also be Itching for a win to start
them off well in the raoe for the

put up a stiff battle againat the

Former Varsity basketball stars
turned In their graves last night
causing a minor tremor that was
picked up by the University seismograph, when the Collegiate Oagemen,
edition 1939, lost their fifth game of
the season to the New Westminster
Adanacs 30-27 in an overtime tilt.
The Yellowshlrte, thla year's Lacrosse Champions of Canada, left
their crosses at home on Wednesday
night, aa they waltzed through the
tilt with their Student partners, Incidental mualo being supplied by the
fVoanlng Varsity coaching staff and

The victory, which was won only
after five minutes of overtime play,
was the Adanacs' first triumph of
the current season and wae the fifth
defeat in seven starts for Varsity
