ISS Week Starts "Next
Monday To Raise Money
For Prisoners Of War
• A CANADA-WIDE University drive will end this month
when students of Canadian Universities contribute to
International Student Service Week in an attempt to aid
those less fortunate fellow students who must carry on behind barbed wire and under the devastating conditions of
total war.
The ISS works to maintain the
moral and intellectual life of students and professors who have
been victimized by war. Fifteen
thousand starving students have
»* bean fed by ISS, they received
clothing and medical supplies,
books and materials for study
Courses have been given to students in over 100 prison camps.
With a goal of 18,000 Mt for
Canadian students to give so that
ether students behind the battle
line may live, every student must
do his or her share. The hunger
for knowledge as wall aa for bread
must be alleviated.
The UBC drive will open with
a Pep-Meet on Monday, March 9,
with Murdo MacKenzie in charge.
Ilia Radio Society will help pub-
. -cite the drive in a broadcast
the same night. Wednesday Self
Denial Day will be given over
to ISS and Phrateres will sponsor
aa International Tea on Wednesday afternoon in Brock Hall. The
tea is open to the general public,
and will feature a costume display.
A Tea Dance in Brock HaU on
Thursday, March 11, will be followed by a Student Conference on
Friday. The Conference will cover
such discussions as The Part Students In Canada Play Today and
Tomorrow,' and 'International
Problems Facing Canadian Students.' It will run from 3-5 p.m.
and from 7:30-9-30 In the evening.
The week will close with a Mixer
on Saturday night, organized by
Ed Wybourn.
Since December Canadian Universities have each held ISS week
with a great degree of success. The
UBC campaign from March 8-13
will provide the last link in the
chain.     '
The appeal from the International Student Service must be
met, and every student should feel
called upon to contribute generously to aid the suffering students in
other lands..

'Gateway Column9 Banned;
McGill Angry Over Daily
• MARCH 1—(CUP)—Following closely on the heels of
the suspension of the McGill Daily pending investigation
of a "smutty" commerce issue, the Students' Council of the
University of Edmonton has banned the next year's edition
of the Engineer's Gateway and a humour column, The "Casserole."
"Casserole" has appeared in the
columns of The Gateway for tho
past twenty years, during which
time it haa been the centre of controversy many times. It was one of
the most popular of College paper
humour columns.
The present ban was brought on
by a page of humour appearing in
the Engineer's edition of The Gateway, and the council felt that
"humour of such a nature did not
represent the majority of the student body."
Editor-in-chief of The Gateway,
Frank Meston, In an editorial explained that due to an accident in
proof reading several jokes that
had been cut out were printed,
and, although he had nothing to
do with the copy he would take the
At McGill, student feeling Is running high over the suspension of
the paper. No one admits that the
Commerce edition was other than
"on the raw side", but a member
of the editorial board of the special
issue remarked "it was gobbled
up on the news stands, and the
students laughed and took it in the
right spirit"
Students are protesting the dictatorship methods used by the faculty in suspending the paper. An
editorial in the Queens University
Journal voiced disapproval at the
staff ot the special issue and "at
the McGill authorities for venting
their wrath too strongly and in the
wrong direction, in rather unsportsmanlike manner." "The greater
weight of our sentiment," continues
the editorial, "we confess, is a-
gainst the university officials."
Michael O'Mara, Editor of the
University of Toronto Varsity, and
President of the Canadian' University Press, outlined his paper's
official stand as: "The VARSITY
. . . will neither endorse nor condone such a lack of journalistic
effort as the Dally manifested,"

Point Grey" a series of
fifty drawings by Mr. Jack
Shadbolt is now on display
in the Double Committee
room in the Brock. The object of the series is to show
Point Grey under enemy occupation, and to bring the
war home to those who have
no connection with it. The
war suddenly becomes real
to the housewife who sees
her own garbage can pictured with a corpse beside it.
Mr. Shadbolt has spared no pains
to get the details perfect. The
buildings, telephone poles, letter
boxes and even the fences and
flowers are familiar. Many of these
pictures are published in the March
issue of "New World" with an explanation. A copy of the magazine
will be placed with the exhibit.
Mr. Shadbolt is well known to
students at UBC. Formerly he was
on the staff of Kitsilano High
School He then went to Europe
to study painting in London and
Paris. On his return he taught at
the Vancouver School of Art. He
is now on the staff of the camouflage School on the University

1. Under no clrcumstanoea bo
on time. Change your underwear
three or four times to stall for time.
Debate for an hour over the choice
of a 'tie. Than walk seductively
into the living room, glance at her
through fluttering eyelids, and
drool "Hello".
2. Load your pockets with junk,
and look helpless she'll either
swear mildly or take pity on you,
(we hope).
3. Introduce her to your family,
taking as long about it as possible,
and adding some trite remark like:
"isn't she cute".
4. Tell her to keep both hands
on the wheel and watch the road,
then snuggle up beside her and
put one hand on her arm, and look
seductive again.
5. Drink like a fish at the cocktail party.
6. Don't make eyes at your escort's roommate—maybe they sloop
together (kick, kick).
7. When she drives you heme
suddenly become silent and begin
gathering up your things—but
linger awhile.
8. Slap her face soundly if She
tries to kiss you good night. Then
look seductive again. After that
it's up to you, further advice ia

The Beveridge Plan
In spite of a good deal of criticism the
plan which Sir William Beveridge presented
to the House of Commons in London, is a
step in the right direction for planning a
better post-war world.
It was unfortunate that the decision of
the House of Commons, to continue the government policy of dealing with such legislation in a cautious manner, nearly precip-
ated serious political difficulties, in fact it
seemed for a time that many of the Labor
party's coalitionists would walk out. In view
of the need for domestic unity in such a time
of national crisis it is well that such a split
was averted. Nevertheless it appears to us
that the squabble is merely a forecast of
things to come in the post-war days.
After the war it seems quite obvious
that there will be some sort of depression,
just how great cannot be foretold by anyone,
but there will undoubtedly be a lull as industry swings from a war footing to a peacetime basis. Things will be greatly complicated by the release of large numbers of
men from the armed services and by the
addition to the labor market of a great many
women, who took over industrial Jobs during the war, and who will be released when
the war-time expansion of industries ends.
It is at a time such as this that the interests of the worker and the owner classes
clash most violently. Men who own businesses will want expenses of government
cut to the bone to prevent high taxation,
while the working classes will he expecting
the state to provide him with some security.
This was, in part, the situation during the
depression days of a decade ago.
Almost everyone is agreed that they
do not want a repetition of the 1930-35 depression. Men, who have served in the army,
will not want to serve in a bread-line. In
the past compromise has averted any serious breach between the owner classes and
the working classes. The Beveridge scheme
would afford just such an opportunity, but
if Steps along this line are not taken, then
more violent means may be resorted to and
the danger of complete disruption of the
present way of life would be imminent.
Fascist Italy, Nazi Germany and Communist
Russia are three of the results of failure to
recognize the need for reform. None of
these would be suitable, in the opinion of
this writer, for Great Britain, the United
States or Canada.
There Is, however, a great need of social
and political reform and the sooner it is recognized and worked out, with a minimum
clash of class interests the better it will be
for the democratic countries.
Sir William's plan was a beginning. If
it is brought along cautiously and developed
properly it can be the basis of a sound postwar policy. If however, personal and private
interests are allowed to hold up the good of
the majority, then a violent clash between
two opposite ideals, democratic capitalism
and socialism, would appear to be unavoidable.
And Beverage Plans
It must be extremely gratifying to temperance advocates to note the enthusiastic response with which tiie Canadian public has
responded to the new liquor regulations.
With the exception of several thousands,
who storm the nation's liquor stores daily,
the mass of the Canadian people have accepted liquor rationing as being in their
The exceptional success of the Volstead
Act in the United States during the twenties
will always serve as an inspiration to prohibitionists. This act, you will recall, raised
the bootlegger from one of the most frowned
on occupations in the community to a position of considerable influence, and opened
the way for many a poor lad to become quite
a wealthy citizen. It also lead to the amusing
spectacle of universal distrust of law and
order and flagrant disobedience.
Senator Volstead's 18th Amendment
abolished the horrors of the saloon and introduced in its stead the refinements of the hip
flask, drinking in hotel rooms and parked
cars, "bath tub gin" and that grand old
American institution, the speakeasy.
Canadians engaged in war industries or
in the fighting forces will salute the democratic manner and the intelligent planning
with which the new rationing is being applied.
In the first place the quota of liquor
which can be issued has been cut to a percentage of last year's. Now the liquor vendors sell each day that percentage of the
same amount sold on the corresponding day
last year, then they close up, or remain a-
round to sell wines and other spirits which
the public has little inclination for.
The fairness of this plan must be obvious to all. Those people who have nothing
much to do during the day, people such as
bootleggers and hangers-on are thus enabled
to get first crack at the available supply
while the working man who cannot get away
during the day is happily forced to do without, unless he cares to drop in on a boot
legger and purchase questionable supplies.
"Aha" cry the the good guardians of public
morale, "but he doesn't need liquor does
he?" This brilliant argument should satisfy
even the most thirsty soldier and ship yard
worker who happens to be on day shift.
Because of large shifts in population, it
is now discovered that many places have
many troops or war workers stationed in
their area, who were not present a year ago.
These centres have less liquor to supply a
greater number now, and of necessity many
must do without, a fact that must make the
greater part of Canada's decent-thinking
citizens very happy. It is certain that many
of the wayward, who are thus denied the
opportunity to satisfy their degrading tastes,
will turn to the good life and make Canadian morality a thing to be envied by all.
We think with horror of the conditions in
Great Britain where, after four years of
bitter experience in war, they still "permit"
the working man to ruin his health and
morale by having his pint after a day's work.
We have been told that most drinkers
would have no objection to the present situation if they could see how it was helping
the war. It seems that all manufacturers
of hard liquor have ceased as the war requirements of industrial alcohol occupy the
distilleries, however, just before Christmas
it was announced that there was four to
five year's supply of liquor on hand, which
could be used. Beer, it is claimed could be
made from grains which are not being used
for anything else. And so it goes. These
poor, deluded fools who sometimes want a
drink persist in believing that the great
forces of temperance are trying to pull a fast
one in the name of war.
We hope that it will not be long before
everyone realizes that the present situation
is all for the best. We predict that the next
few months will see a great many improving effects of this intelligent attitude toward
"Joe sent me."

• IT SEEMS high time some
comment be made on the flow
of fantastic letters to tho papers
demanding, I suppose, the banishment of what the writers Indiscriminately call jazz and swing
from the country It must be ten
years now since the Oeneral Federation of Women Clubs declared
its intention of stamping out jazz,
with the pledged support of the
Ladies' Home Journal, one of the
more insipid women's magazines.
But, of course, this present is not
nearly such a powerful movement.
But what do these people want?
Do they really believe that they
ought to or could do away with a
thing like jazz? The answer varies.
The majority aren't clear on their
alms, but they like showing off
their high intelectual status by
writing letters. Certain points aro
clear in their minds, however.
Jazz is primitive. It lacks melody,
or It lacks counterpoint. One point
is unanimously held, It has rhythm.   Hot Dog, if I may say so
What these people overlook,
and It is to be understood, sine;;
their thoughts on music ore very
shallow, to that true jazz is an
emotional expression, a real music,
and a music ot far more complex
form than their minds can dream
of. As for their other views, jazz
is not primitive, It ls decidedly
sophisticated, possibly to its disadvantage. It makes use of counterpoint so complex that it cannot be appreciated, or even greatly noticed, without much effort.
If indeed it lacks melody, what
then, so, often, does Stravinsky.
Rather the melody ls a trifle less
obvious than that of ' a Strauss
And even if It cannot be enjoyed in its own form, jazz must be
honoured for the influence it has
had on the music of the past fifteen years. The playing of jazz
developed and improved the technique of instrumental work to an
unbelievable extent,. It Is In the
brasses, the trumpets, cornets,
tubas and trombones, that this Is
most obvious, but the Influence
has been felt In many other Instruments. Only after listening to
jazz could Stravinsky and Shostakovich have given *he brasses
the technically difficult work that
they do. Before jazz the trombone
sounded like a bazook. But this
is not all. Jazz is an experimental
music, an Inquisitive music, a
musician's music. It is ever hunting down new forms, new rhythms, new Ideas; often snatched
by those composers called classical.
But it is not as a thing apart
that jazz is to be taken. It muat
be seen as a part of mu?ic, a school
True, it is the expression of an
experience through a musical instrument; it must be music. Fo-
this reason jazz should not be
studied in Isolation, but In conjunction with the 3tudy of other
music; conversely, the study of
music should include jazz Only
in that way can every viewpoint
be heard.

On the third morning, the owner asks
you if you'd like to go riding again. You
rather think not. So you get a cushion and
have another go at the fish.
After about an hour on the lake, the sun
is getting very hot. You begin to notice a
few odd flies. They are extremely annoying.
Suddenly you line gives a jerk. A moment of suspense, then more Jerks. You
start to reel in. Your guide is much more
excited than you are. One would think he'd
never seen a fish caught here before.
It must be a Kamloops. It seems to be
quite heavy. You get him in. It is a Kamloops. It weighs under a pound.
Back home you meet a friend. "Say,
you've got quite a sunburn," he remarks.
"How'd you get it?"
"Oh, when I was out fishing." That was
"Fishing were you? How many did you
get?" he says.
"It was a bit off season where I was,"
you reply a bit limply.

little sarcastic. "You should have been with
us the other day," he continues; "we got a
couple of Cohoe out here in the bay."

Birds Face Piemen
Again Wed. 8:30 In Gym
•   LAST SATURDAY NIGHT at the VAC gym, Varsity's
Senior A Basketballers were beaten by Arnie Bumstead
37-28. Large Mr. Bumstead had to call in a bit of help to
add some of the points to his personal total of 20, but he was
the big noise in quelling the efforts of our boys
As a result of this Laurie victory,
our boys are now one game away
from not being in the playoffs no'
mo'. The series is a best of three
affair, and with Varsity now one
game down, they will havo to win,,
next Wednesday night in their
own gym to stay in tho fight.
Lauries adopted for their motto

this fine sentiment. He s.-ored all

Perhaps, the big reason for
Varsity's loss on Saturday, besides
Bumstead, was the''failure of any
member of the team to reach double figures, thus leaving the 'Birds
without any leader whom they
could depend on for a timely basket or two.
Art Barton was high scorer with
six points and every player but
two shared in the point-getting,
what there wm of lt.
The boys started off alright.
They ended the quarter tied 8-all,
but they looked as if they had
enough in reserve to beat the piemen.
They were a little disappointing
in the second quarter, scoring only
six points while Lauries kept up
their first canto pace to lead at
the half,  16-14.
The third session saw what is
beginning to become a horrible
familiar occurence. Lauries
poured In three quick baskets to
increase their lead to 8 points.
This, as it has done before, somewhat disorganized our boys.    In

they started to get reckless, which,

That was all for Varsity.

well-played victory last Saturday
afternoon at Central Park as they
downed the South Burnaby eleven
5 goals to 2.
This moves the student} up into
fourth place In thc standings, a
game and a half behind the third
place Richmond outfit.
The game was featured by many
penalty kicks, and both teams
capitalized on these to score a goal
apiece, Pat Campbell gathering the
one for the Blue and Gold.
The students were having a hard
fought battle with the Burnaby
lads, but as tempers began to flare
In the second half, the Birds ran
in three quick goals to put the
game on ice.
Frank Adams opened the scoring on a pass from Moran, followed by Campbell's penalty shot.
Clem Phllley then ran in the most
beautiful goal of the game, coming in by himself from left wing
to boot the ball home with hli
left foot.
Phllley   followed    again   with
auother shot ,this time on a pass
from Walt Green. Frank Adanu
gathered his second counter of the
game to put things safely away
with a 5-2 count.

Inter A's vs. Higbies At 9
In Fourth Playoff Game
• WITH ELIMINATION from the playoffs of the Inter A
League staring them in their collective face, the Varsity
Inter A team will face Ted Milton's strong Higbie outfit
tonight at King Ed Gym in the fourth game of their series
with the Milton men.
To date, Higbies have won two games to Varsity's
single victory and if they (Higbies) win tonight, it will be
all over but the shouting.
In their last game against their opponents, the Thunderbirds took a 31-21 pasting, but in the last quarter, they
came far closer than the final score indicated.
Up to the start of the last session, our boys had accumulated only 7 points as against Higbies 25.
They shifted into high gear towards the close of the
third and kept up their drive all through the last quarter.
Higbies got more and more uneasy as their lead shortened
and it was only the bell that saved them.
The Thunderbirds pulled the same stunt last Friday at
Magee, only this time it succeeded.
It is this last-minute surge of fire that Coach Demetrie
Elefthery is relying on to knot the Thunderbird's series at
two-all. He hopes, however, to school his charges so that
they will play heads-up ball for four quarters and not just
Basketball Experts
Pick All-Star Squad
• UNLESS the Province or the Sun or the News-Herald
beats us to it, we have great pleasure in announcing the
first all-star team chosen of this basketball season.
The men who fearlessly picked this fearsome outfit
are Coach Wally Mayers of RCAF, Coach M. L. Van Vliet of
Varsity, Coach Larry Haynes of Shores and Manager Nate
Singer of Stacys. Arnie Bumstead, the Laurie coach is not
represented for the simple reason we couldn't contact him.
To lend a touch of impartiality to this business of picking all-star teams, Ian McLeod, Manager of last year's Tooke
team, and Chuck Jones, basketball expert of the Province,
also gave their selections.
The net results of their choices came out as follows:
• THE VARSITY THUNDERBIRDS turnsd the heat oa
the Ex-Byng English rugger team last Saturday and showed that they could play a brand of rugby that was effective.
The UBC thirteen turned in an aggregate score of 27 points.
The Ex-Byng laid but 6 points on their end of the board.
This victory allows the Blue and .
Gold to play Ex-Britannia in the
final round of the Tisdall Cup next
week. Ex-Britannia won the bye
to play Saturday's winner in the
Anal last Monday night. The final
round for the Bell-Irving trophy
will be played off on the same
Now let us see what did happen
at the fray. Varsity received the
kick at the opening whistle but
did not take it far enough back
down the field. Within two minutes, an Ex-Byng player, Len Harrison, waa laying on the blessed
side of his goal line with the pig
ik,ln firmly under his arm. The
convert to the try failed to materialize.
This little gesture made our boys
pretty sore, every last one of thorn.
McKercher tied the More a little
while later but Norm Goodwin
wu weak on the place-kicking.
Jones put the Blue and Gold "a-
head before the half time rest.
Farris did most of the work on
this play in a fighting effort down
the field. The convert missed.
On resumption of play every
man on the Varsity line-up handled the ball almost at wlU. Hicks
did a great deal of affective running, while Fred Linsey took moat
of the scoring laurels.
Total tries amounted to five during tho second canto and threo of
them were converted. Fred Linsey
made the three converts and ono
touch for a total of nine point!
on his part alone. Al Narod, Al
Jones, Bob Farris and Hicks touched for the students hi the big parade down the field.
A few moments before tho ond
of the game, Al Narod received a
boot in the side and had to leave
the game. With Varsity playing

•   THIS WEEK the Personality Parade turns the spotlight
on the Men's Athletic Representative on the Students'
Council. He is conscientious, hard-working Lynn Sully. Lynn
is also president of the MAD.
Mr. Sully is a fourth year agriculture student who
is studying along the lines of economic fields in Aggie. Lynn
will not graduate until the fall term this year. He entered
this university as a freshman in the fall of 1938 but worked
one year between his studies. His plans and hopes are that
he will become a high school teacher in physical training or
Lynn was born in the distant province of Ontario 23
years ago. His parents brought him part way West in his
early youth to the sunny lands of the prairie. Then, in his
bubbling high school days Lynn would envy those big swell
athletes that pranced around the UBC campus. At this time
the Sullys were residing on the campus at an address on
Westbrook Crescent. Apparently Lynn's father thought that
this city life was ruining his handsome son, so he moved his
family to a small stump farm in the Fraser Valley.
Here Lynn built brawn and muscle while he helped
his father clear land. He spent the last two years of his high
school at Langley.  He starred on the Langley High School
Personality Parade
Soccer team in his senior year there. This team took on all
the best soccer teams in the mainland high schools and proved
itself one of the best of the soccer teams known at that time.
Mr. Sully has always had a weak spot for any sport
or game, and when he came to UBC he decided to acquaint
himself with as many as he could. During his stay here he
has developed into quite a well-known and liked tennis
player. He played on the Varsity basketball team that won
the Dominion championship in the season of 1940-41. He
played the next year also with the Thunderbird basketball
team. Lynn's position in the hoopla line-up was as a guard.
He has a keen interest in and a readinesss to try any game
or sport that comes along.
It is probably this wide interest that has made him
the popular MAD president and the Men's Athletic Representative on this year's Council. His popularity was established and his ability to sense the type of sport card the
campus wanted was brought out last spring when he called
for a tennis tournament. The result as you all know was
tremendous. Far more applications were handed in than
could be comfortably handled.
This year Lynn Sully has pulled equally well with
Maury Van Vliet, Miss Moore and all the others who have
fought gallantly to keep up a good sport program and keep
the spirit of sportsmanship alive on the campus. He deserves
a lot of credit for his work, for he has had no experience
equal to the job which he has handled so well while he has
been our Men's Athletic Representative. It is true that he
has made some mistakes, but no one should need to be told
that the man who never made a mistake never made anything.
Lynn Kylle Sully, (his full name), has three things
uppermost in his mind at the present time. They are all
worth some time and thought by every one who reads this.
They are: NUMBER ONE—start your spring training now,
even if you are not taking part in a sport, get in shape and
feel the goodness of spring; NUMBER TWO—be careful who
you choose for next year's Athletic Representative, making
sure you pick the best one; and NUMBER THREE—remember what George Pringle did and stood for and then get out
and put the bursary drive over the top.
