is.  Under one pair of pyjamas there beats a masculine
heart.  Can you find him? He dressed up in feminine garb
to crash the Hi-Jinx girl-crazy party and narrowly escaped  'peace until their faculty has re-
serious injury from Tarzan's mate who discovered him as    gained its feet
shown on the left. If you haven't found him yet, he's seated
above on the extreme left.
Male Invades Women's
"And so to Bed" Party
By Cal "Patsy" Whitehead
•   "LOOK AT the woman next to you and make sure that
she is".
Barbara Greene was not taking any chances after a
jaightJ^%4Wi»U^«uutbjtnto of. the, WUS Hi-Jinx "and
so to bed" party.
She could not be sure that
another alien heart was not
beating under a bulky nightshirt, or another bristly chin
was not hiding behind a face-
ful of pancake make-up.
Then, satisfied that all would be
calm and serene, that is, as calm
and serene as a Hi-Jinx party could
fa, she recommenced the festivities.
The event was very well planned
and a good time was had by all,
including me: I enjoyed myself immensely.
But even though I did enjoy myself immensely, I felt as if I was
an outsider. It was one of those
strangely unexplainable feelings
which are so often accompanied by
intense feelings of foreboding.
HAD INSIDE HELP
Since I did not consider myself
an authority on what I should or
should not wear, I had to enlist
the help of "friends on the inside".
From one source I procured an
ankle-length chenille dressing gown
and from  another,  an old floor-
sweeping night-gown.
From my next-door neighbor, a
freshette of 1922, I obtained a pair
of slippers to cover my dainty feet.
Certain unmentionables I obtained
from her also.
A  kerchief  to  cover   my   long
tresses and some hair curlers to
complete   the   farce,   I   obtained
from the aforesaid members from
the inside. From them also I received aid in applying my makeup; pancake makeup to cover the
stubble on my chin and lipstick
on myl lips. A pair of glasses offset the thickness of my eyebrows.
PUT UP 'GOOD FRONT
I was advised by these members
from the inside to "put up a good
front."   I too thought this was an
excellent idea. Old Ubysseys suited   the   purpose   admirably.   For
the sake of uniformity only. Patsy
was my name.
Upon entering  the gym,  I saw
a scene that  shocked  me  to say
the   least.    The   first   thing   that
ci. ught   my   eye  as   I   walked   as
daintily as I could across the floor
of   the   gym,   was  a  bright,   red,
sack-like  nightgown.  After I had
pushed my eyeballs back into their
sockets  and  proceeded across  the
floor, I glanced around lo look at
some of the other creations,
Sheer,   revcnllng,  two-piece   pajamas gave way to a preponderance
of   more  serviceable  sleeping  ap
parel. Some of the women had exquisite creation straight from Ad-
rlanne's 1844 shoppe; these were
neither sheer nor form-fllUlng. One
ensemble I liked especially was a
one-piece sleeping unit complete
with trapdoor and "boudoir cap".
The party was advertised as being good enough to keep the drowsy coeds awake. It kept this coed
awake; I wasn't drowsy for a moment.
In the way of entertainment, the
girls led off with a number of
novel relajk and races. Not to be
outdone I took part in them also.
Having always been a farmer at
heart, I put my efforts on the side
of the Aggie women's team. *
COULDN'T MUSTER FALSETTO
It was not until the sing-song
started that I feu seriously handicapped. 1 felt hurt because I could
not sing. My voice was made extremely gruff by an attack of laryngitis. I could not even muster
a falsetto.
It was in thi* stage of my\ escapade, an hour and a half after I
had first entered, that the women
started to look at me with half-
amused glances.
I saw many cautious whispers
behind cupped hands and many
felt odd. I smiled back at them,
as sweetly as I could considering
the fact that I had lipstick all over
my teeth, and made ready to flee,
Hardly had I the chance to move
a muscle when I saw descending
upon me a beefy individual who
had muscles of steel rippling beneath her pyjamas.
At that point I suddenly remembered a previous engagement and
had to "tear myself away."
According to the executive of
AUS, this year will see an outstanding rise in the fortunes of
the Arts faculty.
Watch for announcements of the
Arts Undergraduate Ball and further Pep Meets.
A debate against the Science
faculty in about two week's time
is rumoured.

Today on the World's Battlefronts
THE WESTERN FRONT
• ALLIED Headquarters, Paris,
November 14— (BUP)—The Germans were reported today to have
begun withdrawing their forces
from the Metz area. The Nazis
have abandoned one of the great
forts and two of its lesser ones
without a fight.
The Yanks now hove four bridgeheads across the Moselle River, it
was reported today. Despite winter weather, and stiff German resistance at some points, the American Army continued to chalk
up  important  gains.
The last of the German Fleet's
great dreadnoughts, the Tirpitz, is
at the bottom of a Norwegian
fjord. Lancaster bombers from
Britain blasted the super-battleship with six - ton earthquake
bombs. Most of the skeleton crew
aboard the vessel went to the bottom with their ship, it is believed.
THE EASTERN FRONT
•   MOSCOW, November 14-(BU
P)— The  battle  for  the capital
of  Hungary,  Budapest,  is increasing in fury, it was reported today.
The Red Army is said to have
driven into a German stronghold
30 miles east of the beleagured
capital, according to Berlin.
The Red Army is reported from
Moscow to have established a firm
bridgehead across the Danube below Budapest and Soviet forces
continue to bombard the city's outskirts.
The Yugoslav Army of National
Liberation has entered Skoplje,
virtually clearing the Athens-Belgrade railway. Marshall Tito announced today. EDITORIAL PAGE

National Conference This Year
We have published many reports recently concerning a national inter-university
conference this year. Just about every university seems to be in favor of the idea.
First item on the agenda would be re-organization of the National Federation of Canadian University Students. We think this
is reason enough to call a conference.
The University of Saskatchewan has
taken the lead in discussions so far. UBC
has signified its support, but that is as far
as we've gone. Now we think it is time that
this university comes forth with concrete
proposals of a date and place for the conference. Then we can see if a national conference is feasible this year.
If it is not possible to hold a national
conference we should hold another Western
Inter-University Conference. Although last
year's conference was not a great success, it
prepared the way for greater co-operation
and understanding among Canadian universities.
We do not agree with those who believe
that Canadian social and economic problems
of all kinds should be discussed at the conference. Time and money are too short to
waste on these questions, which will bring
no direct benefit to those who pay for the
conference. The idea is to hold a university
conference—on university affairs. We can
see the value of discussing university affairs.
We do not think that university students
could accomplish much discussing social and
economic problems.
The Sleeping Bear Awakes
UBC's long-dormant Artsmen rolled out
of bed last week, blinked in the bright sunlight and decided to come out of hibernation.
They found the world still going on, resolved
to have another go at it.
Unheard of in recent UBC history, an
Arts pep meet is actually being planned.
We hear they've even made a booking for
Arts 100. On top of all this comes a contest
for an Arts yell. We look on with amazement.
Credit for disturbing Artsmen's sleep
goes to MUS President Les Raphael, AUS
President Gordon Campbell and a host of
other anonymous members of the Arts
faculty. We wish them well, but still stand
ready with the smelling salts.
No matter whether you are a Science-
man or an Aggie, you have to express a bit
of admiration for these first signs of life in
UBC's huge sleeping bear. Potentially one
of the most powerful factors on the campus,
it has never bothered to reach for its honeyed
prize.
Great possibilities for constructive work
on this campus exist in the Arts Undergraduate Society. Composed of the majority
of students, the AUS could be a useful part
of student government. We hope that these
recent tiny sparks of life are not a false
alarm.
• ill all  SeriOUSneSS    ... by Denis Blunden
• IN A SCHOOL on the other side of
town before the war with Japan, there
existed the best racial compromise between
orientals and whites yet seen in anti-oriental
Vancouver.
The compromise was not pefWciVfbut it
worked in harmony most of the tim^and
the rest of the time the spjit was^ usually
caused by home influence^/.- '■$%ti0g$
The rehSdfridetgfSftMK"'
ability of this compromise
was because of its naturalness. Those Japanese, who
were overbearing, swaggering, and militaristic were
never accepted into any
group but their own cliphe
of nationals.
Those who were ordinary, respectful, new Canadians became almost as much
a part of school life as any ordinary white
boy. Unconsciously, they were accepted into
the group without either class thinking much
about the situation. The system was that
simple.
CROSS TO BEAR
For two yean I used to walk to school
with a Japanese boy who was universally
respected in the district as an honest, sincere, and natural Canadian.
I also knew many Japanese who were
revoltingly arrogant in their manner. But
the interesting fact about the two groups
was that the majority of nationalistic, swaggering Japanese came from homes situated
in what was then "Little Tokyo" and the
majority of sensible, accepted Japanese came
from homes situated either within or on the
outskirts of the "white" community. Given
a chance from early childhood to fraternize
with the people of Canadian birth, the Japanese almost became accepted as Canadians.
JAPANESE TO THE END
I have heard the accepted Japanese complain bitterly of having to attend Japanese
school after regular school hours to absorb
Japanese culture. When asked why they
went, the answer was usually in the form
of a verbal shrug: "I have to go."
They were under a psychological strain
in having to fight as best they could the
influence of the older members of their race
who insisted on remaining Japanese to the
end, and also to accept passiveyl the invisible wall that prevented them from becom
ing completely assimilated.
As a result they became outcasts in their
end, and also to accept passively the invis-
ians in their daily life, forced to pay for the
hated nationalism practised by the unassun-
ilated Japanese.
It is interesting to speculate what sort
of "white" Canadian would be the result
if they were subected to such intense psychological strain. Less personal ana family
stresses have resulted in hardened criminals
and social frankenstiens in our own community.
"STUPID" ADULT OUTLOOK
What then is the solution to the problem
that will arise when we can no longer hide
the desire to be rid of all Japanese under
the guise of wartime security?
The school children on the other side
of town, in their immature reasoning used to
lament the fact that their parents were
"stupid" in their attitude and should treat
the Japanese just as their sons and daughters
treated them in school—accept them if they
are acceptable.
Such a method is indeed impractical
among people who look at Japanese through
a gilt dollar sign. If the Japanese were
monetary assets then there would have been
no problem in the first place.
But the people believe Japanese are
monetary threats to "our way of life". What
is needed is to apply the spirit of the minimum wage act to Japanese so that they
must do the same work for the same wages
as everyone else.
Japanese schools should not be allowed
to be re-established. The Japanese culture
can not be handed down from generation to
generation if the culture dies with the first
Canadian generation.
MONEY IS THE DIFFERENCE
As to the population, if the Japanese
standard of living were made the same as
ours then their population increase would
nose-dive just as ours has done.
But lastly, the question boils down to
economic. The Japanese have to accept our
standard of living and live the way we do
and not continue as people who can live on
less and therefore can accept less money.
Then they will deserve the right to vote.
British Columbians may never be able
to accept the color of the Japanese skin, but
they will always accept the color of Japanese
money.

LETTER TO
THE EDITOR
The Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
My attention was drawn to a
' short column ln your* paper, referring to a scourging given to
UBC students by a disgruntled
street car rider who addressed his
remarks to the "Buzzer."
Being a naturally sensitive person, I realize that to palish the
manners of brutal university men
and women would be a hopeless
task, and therefore two alternatives remain: 1. Only students*
with private means of transportation be allowed to attend university. 2. Educate the public that at
least 1500 of the 2900 students must
use the No. 15 and 16 cars westbound from Granville daily between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and
9:00 a.m.
If the writer of the letter to the
"Buzzer" made his observations
on the car of any other line, we
must conclude that he is unnaturally prejudiced, since the students form only a small part of
the great "free-for-all" which exists between factory and white
collar workers on all North and
Westbound cars in the grim hours
of the morning.
To make an understatement, the
students do form a majority of
the passengers riding on the westbound No. 15 and 16 cars in the
morning. With whom have they a
chance to be brutal? Not with
any workers riding to town, since
we are going in the opposite direction. Not with any workers
coming off night shift since they
have obtained seats as the car
passed along Hastings St. These
persons will not be many, since
the number of people living ln
West Point Grey who must come
from work in that hour is not
overwhelmingly great. The bulk
of the remaining passengers, I
fear, are workers bound for the
Marpole interurban at Arbutus St.
These cheerful people morning
after morning ignore the myriads
of empty No. 14's westbound from
Broadway and Granville, and insist on squeezing out students
from the 15's and 16's. Small wonder if they are jostled while leaving the car, er made to stand all
the long distance to MacDonald
St. Why shouldn't a student, who
has stood on the Central Park interurban, the No. 5 and 1 cars,
and whose arms are somewhat
(Continued in Column 5)
limp from packing books all that
distance snatch a seat on the 15?
The same applies to West Point
Grey cars eastbound in the afternoon. The students begin to board
the cars in bulk after 4:00 p.m.
At that hour, what do the other
passengers in eastbound 15's and
16's consist of? Not housewives
trekking to town for provender
at that advanced hour, but housewives trekking to and from afternoon tea or luncheon and bridge.
They can hardly expect students
to be very anxious to rise, pick
up their books and lunchpails
and relinquish their seats.
All which points to the same
fact. The number of persons who
have "a right" to be riding in the
cars transporting university students are few and far between.
Let the disgruntled passenger
whose toes are mashed or whose
eardrums are pierced by the uninhibited conduct of a university
student ask himself "Well, what
am I doing on this car anyway?"
Nevertheless, being a sensitive
sort, the next time I catch the eye
of a bef urred matron on the street
car I will probably rise and "move
up to the front," distributing lethal
blows to right and left with my
little brown suitcast.
Yours very truly,
E. L. Affleck.

Down UBC 12-6 In Speedy Tilt
Varsity Punters Solidify
Lead In MillerCupRugby
• VARSITY and UBC, the University's two rugger outfits,
went into battle against each other
Saturday in the campus stadium to
produce one of the fastest scuffles
of the season. The Varsity fifteen
took a 12-6 decision to strengthen
their hold on first place in the
Miller Cup race.
In the first half, Varsity took the
lead on a score by Tom McCusker
who picked up a pass on the end
of the three-line and carried the
pigskin over the line for three
points.
UBC was not to be outdone, however, so Bob Mitten came right
back with a try to even the count
at 3-3. Both clubs failed on the
converts.
Varsity set the pace again as Jim

Hughes grabbed a ball which was
neatly heeled from the scrum in
UBCs backyard. He packed the
oval into try territory to give Varsity a 6-3 lead before the half.
After the breather, Joe Pegues
and Bob Lawson hit paydirt for
the Varsity fifteen to send them
well ahead with a 12-3 count. Although the UBC lads struggled
throxftfhout the rest of the contest,
they were held scoreless by their
mightier brethren until the Varsity
squad was penalized for picking
out of the scrum.
Harry Kabush took the free kick
which the referee awarded the
UBC'ers and booted it squarely between the uprights to finish off the
scoring for both sides.
Rod Wings Stop
Toronto Streak
• TORONTO - (BUP) - Detroit
finally set down the mighty
Toronto Maple Leafs 4-2 Sunday
night. After beating the second
place Canadiens 8-1 Saturday night,
the Leafs were stopped by the
fighting Red Wings who now occupy third place in the league
standings.
In spite of this defeat, Toronto
still holds down the top spot. The
lowly Rangers picked up their first
points over the weekend to climb
out of the cellar. Canadiens and
Detroit both split points with a win
and a loss to remain in second and
third spots respectively.
Frank McCool, Maple Leaf rookie
goalie, stopped the Montreal team
cold on Saturday. Schriner, Bod-
nnr, and Can- combined for all of
Toronto's markers.
Rangers beat Detroit 5-2 and tied
Boston 5-5. Rookie Walter Atanas
starred for the New Yorkers, picking up two goals and an assist. For
Boston, veteran Bill Cowley did
likewise.
At Montreal, the Canadiens,
smarting from their defeat at Toronto, whipped Chicago 4-2. Richard,
Gettliffe, O'Connor and Blake scored for the Habitants. Harvey
Fraser, who played with New Westminster Lodestars last year, and
Bill Mosienko, tallied for the Chi-
Hawks,

Varsity Ice Hockey Squad
Plans Exhibition Schedule
e ICE HOCKEY has onoe more
invaded the sporting halls of
UBC. After an absence of more
than three years, the great eastern sport will be played again
here.        •
UBC's director of physical education, M. L. Van Vliet, has formed
a junior ice team from some of
the best material seen for years
on this campus. There are players on the team from towns all
over B.C. and there is even a
representative from the prairies,
At the present moment, Ted Taylor Is doing the hard work of organizing the boys Into a smooth
machine. He has spent the last
month in perfecting the playing
of the 15 boys.
Stars of team in their first game
were Taylor, who did a stalwart
job on the forward line, and Ken
Devlin, who scored the team's only goal.
Others on the team who are doing sterling work for UBC are the
two defencemen, Gord Smetanuk
from Williams Lake and Frank
Walden from the interior. Besides
Taylor and Devlin on the forward
line, there is also Jim Rowledgc
from Vernon and the prairies, and

Bill Buhler also from the interior.
For the all-important position of
goal on the team, Maury Moyls
from Vancouver and Chuck McPherson from the Island are fighting neck and neck. At the moment,
Moyls seems to have the Inside
track.
Coach Taylor's greatest trouble
right now is the lack of defence-
men. There are only three on the
team now and the need for at
least two more is becoming more
acute every day,
Mr. Taylor says that the team
will not be able to play any league
games this year but he adds that
next year's team should be one
of the best in the Vancouver Junior Hockey League.
The rink boys lost their first
practice game of the season to Arrows 7-1. However, they stoutly
affirm that this pasting was the
result of the old hockey disease of
'Not Enough Practice' and that
with more practice they can defeat
any opposition the league can put
up against them.
A practice is held every Sunday
night in the Hastings Park Forum
from 8:00 to 10:00 p.m. Taylor
soys that any one who wishes to
join the team, even at this late
date, may do so by turning out
for next Sunday's practice, The
team can use at least another 10
men.
Take 36-35 Win In First
Victory Trip This Year
By LUKE MOYLS
• VARSITY'S latest edition of the Senior A Thunderbirds
started off their drive for the Provincial and Dominion
Basketball Championships in the right way over the weekend
as they downed their primary enemies, the Pat Bay Gremlins,
with a 36-35 decision at Victoria Saturday night.
Fighting all the way, the Students came from behind in
the final stages of the tilt to cop the thriller by a single
marker, chalking up victory number five in their unblemished
record for the current casaba season.
The   narrow   triumph   yielded       —————————
narrow
Varsity their first victory over
the Pat Bay Fliers in more than
a year and their Initial victory
over them on the Island. The last
time the 'Birds managed to defeat the Gremlins was in the provincial hoop playoffs In the spring
of 1943.
With the lead changing back and
forth with thrilling baskets, the
first Senior A tilt of the year for
Victoria drew 500 hoop enthusiasts
who crammed the Victoria High
School Gym and yelled and
screamed themselves hoarse with
excitement.
Art Stilwell started off the
scoring with a neat one-handed
special which went swishing
through the net. However, led by
Porky Andrews who totalled 17
points for high score1 of the evening, the Fliers matcher the Blue
and Gold sharpshooters basket
for basket in the first five minutes.
Pat Bay took a three-point margin in the middle of the first stanza when Norm Baker dropped in
a pair of free throws along with
another by Bob Phelan. The play
tightened for the rest of the period, the Fliers still holding their
margin with a 10-7 score at quarter time.
The second canto was even tighter as the two clubs matched eqch
other point for point. However,
the Airmen were losing ground
since they depended on gift throws
to keep pace with the Students,
sinking four of them.
With the half time count at 18-
15 for Pat Bay, excitement ran
high as the Thunderbirds launched a speedy offensive after the
breather. Outplaying the, former
Canadian champs, the Blue and
Gold hoopers gradually closed the
margin, The crowd went into hysterics when Victoria's own Reg
Clarkson evened the score for Varsity with a free shot which swished through the hoop just as the
three-quarted  whistle  blew.
On even terms with the Airmen,
the morale of the Varsity quintet
rose considerably, and the outfit
went into the final stanza with all
guns firing. Their attack was successful, too, as they built up a
six-point lead, 34-28. But the
Fliers retaliated at this point, sending two shot* whistling through
the hoop. A gift throw by Andrews brought Pat Bay within a
point of the Thunderbirds.
The fans went wild when Pop
Pay managed to tap a rebound
into the basket to give the Airmen the lead. Seconds later, Sandy Robertson, Art Stilwell and
Ole Bakken packed themselves
under the Pat Bay hoop, and after
each had had a try at pounding
in a rebound, Bakken made another attempt, which rolled around
the hoop before dropping in to
cinch the triumph,
VARSITY - Yorke 1, McGeer,
Clarkson 2, McLeod, Johnson 2,
Robertson 12, Weber 4, Ryan, Bakken 13, Stilwell 2. Total 38.
PAT BAY - Norm Baker 6,
Ralph Baker, Andrews 17, Pay 4,
McKeachle 5, Phelan 3, Lee. Total
35.

Cagette Outfits
Absorb Defeats
e LADY LUCK frowned on Varsity's co-ed hoopsters last week,
both teams lost the season's opening games. Varsity's Senior B outfit lost to Hedlunds in the first
game of the Cagette League down
at Pro-Rec Gym Last Wednesday,
27-20. The Inter A's absorbed a
terrific trouncing from Canadian
Legion at John Oliver Gym Friday
night when they lost, 31-6.
The Senior B Tilt, fast and furious with veteran forward Marge
Watt starring with some lovely
one-handed long shots and backed
by left-handed centre, Barbara
Simpson, and guard Audrey Mc-
Kim, battling hard against Hedlund
forwards. The Senior B team was
defeated last year in the finals by
Normal School but this year Normal has withdrawn from the league
and the hopes for Varsity are high.
Lineup for this year includes
four freshettes: Yvonne French, a
hard-fighting guard has promise of
a good defence along with Frances
Antllle, a strong defence for the
Senior B's. Alice Elart and Marge
MacGlllivray have the promising
signs of good forwards.
Hedlund stars Lorna MacKenzie,
a veteran hoopster since high
school days and a strong defense
player for Hedlunds; Ella Scowby,
guard on Hedlund B's and Ex-KiU'
ball star; and Kay Watson, star
player on last year's Normal champ
team. The Hedlund cagettes gave
the Varsity gals a taste of real
competition and the two teams
battled till the flnal whistle blew.
Here is the lineup of the Varsity
Senior B team: Forwards—Marge
Watt, Barbara Simpson, Alice Elart,
Marge MacGlllivray; Guards —
Audrey McKim, Frances Antillo,
Yvonne French.
Intermediate A's bowed to Canadian Legion at John Oliver gym
Friday night, chalking up 6 points
to Legion's 31.
The score was one-sided until
the last quarter when the A's got
over their basket shyness and
started to score. Yvette Morris
sank the first one and Bunny Staf
scored the other two for Varsity.
