Throughout Canada today groups
of young men and woirien In Oana-.
. dlan universities have banded together to campaign for eduoatlon
under state subsidy.
These young people, organised under the Oanadlan Student Assembly,
and backing the work of Paul Martin, Liberal M.P., at Ottawa from
Essex East In Ontario, are raising an
Issue whloh concerns the true Interpretation of the Oanadlan Constitution . . . the question of federal and
provincial responsibilities, and the
powers attendant upon them.
Wo, for ono, believe ln the greater
unity of Canada under moro centralised policy of government. We believe that provincial rights of administration and of legislation should be
guarded, but not to the detriment of
the nation as a whole.
At the present time Canada, a
community of only some 11 million
people, ts governed by 9 different
legislatures, to say nothing of the
house at Ottawa. Taking Into the
account the spread of taxation which
favors Ottawa In no amall degree,
the work and expenses of the local
provincial assemblies is already overburdened.
We believe that Ottawa, more than
any provincial authority, Is In a better position, and has more responsibility, for the subsidising of education, which Is one way of developing
the natural human wealth of Canada, a very national matter.
The following ls the statement la-
sued by the local campaign committee, and we believe that it warrants
some attention.
Canada Is at the present moment
the only civilized country ln the
world with a system of higher education which has no provision for
National Scholarships. Anyone doubting the desirability of National Scholarships has, only to study the extent
and success of such systems ln other
civilised lands to be convinced.
It has been calculated, on the basis
of official returns, that nearly one
half of the total number of students
tn British Universities have obtained
assistance ln one form or other, on
account of the promise they show,
either before entering upon a University oareer or at some point ln its
course. The Universities of Oxford
and Cambridge, supposed to be the
homes of the rich, contain 38.2 per
cent, of assisted students.
Translated Into aotual figures,
this means that the British Government assisted, In 1938, no fewer
than 140,000 students. Compare
this with Canada, where 8 per oent.
of our students, some 2,100 out of
21,818 receive awards amounting to
an average of fifty dollars, none of
which oomes from the Government.
What does this mean? It means
that Great Britain, along with
other civilised countries has seen
what tremendous returns accrue
from higher education. They have
not been averse to experimenting
with that most Indispensable machine—-the human mind. The results are self-evident—progress In
every field of endeavour.
Conditions in Japan are most interesting. To quote Dr. H. M. Tory,
former President of the Research
Council of Canada, "I found ln Japan ln 1926 . . . six Imperial Universities ... 69 research institutes, 24 of
which were supported by the central
government. In them were employed
4,500 scientific experts and assistants." Japan has in two generations
transformed herself from a semi-
feudal state into a nation of students, and ls now a first class economic and  political power.
Russia presents another striking
picture. Here we find a vivid example
of what state-endowed education can
accomplish. She has 973 research Institutes, and ln 1937 produced 47,900
trained   men   to  be   engaged   for  five

Christmas shopping is nearly forgotten by now, but Totem
shopping is just beginning. The crowds are expected to be'
immense, according to the present data. The main sale will start
on Monday, February 13, at 9'o'clock.
Only fourteen days to  buy your  Totems—that's the slogan'
now. The Ubyssey has taken upon itself to keep its public posted
as to the time left to make the necessary purchases.  As iB customary  at  the  time  of unprecedented   activity   in   any   market,
customers are advised to shop early to avoid the rush.

Wants a Union
Building Too!
The University of Saskatchewan
has evidently been bitten by the Union Building Campaign bug. Yesterday morning Studenta' Council received a wire from the Saskatchewan
Oounoil asking for particulars as to
our Brook Memorial Building, the
erection of whloh will, In the light of
recent events, become a reality.
The Saskatchewan student body Is
thinking ot inaugurating a campaign
similar to the one mapped out by
the Oommittee here and requires details as to the cost of our building,
also sketches of  the proposed plan.
Professor Walter Oage, master of
ceremonies at the recent Frosh draw,
quickly took Into oontrol the turbulent element clad ln the solenoe red
as he peeked Into the future and
prophesied, "If any sclencemen Interrupt me I will fail them ln Math.
Whereupon the red menace roared Its disapproval and then calmed
down as Mr. Gage assumed the role
of fate, gleefully calling out the
names of the Fresh he was bringing together.
As name after name echoed through
the auditorium the 'crimson horde'
gawked critically as the partners displayed their charms to a discriminating audience. Perhaps ln some red
heart there beat the fond hope that
some charming co-ed might mistake
them, beard and all, for the partner
fate had decreed.
Under the capable hand of Maestro Gage those persons possessing
the names drawn were exhorted,
forced and threatened to rise. One
poor freshman Isolated In a sea of
future engineers hastily rose as
sclencemen clamored for Inspection.
As more and more of the Frosh
were backward about displaying their
features Mr. Oage prophesied: "Oh,
well, all of you will be more brazen
next year."
All roared in support of this theory.
Solenoe lungs bellowed mllltantly
as one of their number had the
merciless stigma of having his
name read out. Solenoe eyes glared
wrathfully at the person responsible for classing a prominent
member of the red horde aa a mere
artsman and a Frosh at that.
Arts lungs blared gleefully at the
public demotion of a scienceman.
Among the numerous personalities
glimpsed ln the  audience  were:
"Bashful" slunk Into his seat as
his name Aloysius Algernon Frosch-
man waa Masoned forth throughout
the Auditorium. As combined Art
and Science yells re-echoed in sympathy A. A. F. slunk further onto
the floor.

her  rapidly  scattering wits  as  she
realised  that  she had  been  drawn

Three    hundred     and     some     odd

Immediately  they proceeded to track

Speaking seoond in a series of three
talks sponsored by the Monro Pre-
Medlcal Club and the University
Health Service, Dr. O. F. Strong,
Tuesday noon, emphasized the importance of periodic medical examination.
Shattering the prevelant theory
of "Athlete's Heart", he explained
that "the greatest cause of sudden
and dramatic death, often mistaken
for acute indigestion, Is actually
hardening of the heart arteries—
degenerative heart disease." The
most reliable sign of this disease,
he stated, is the enlargement of
the heart.
The two main causes, he pointed
out, were rheumatic fever and venereal disease. In his opinion tobacco,
tea, coffee, and nlchohol were not a
cause but could be an aggravating
He advised the women against any
"bizarre reducing diets", and stressed
the importance of an "adequate and
prolonged convalescence" after an

of this University is prominent In
the present C.S.A. campaign for student scholarships.
National Matriculation scholarship,
the magic phrase which is being
spoken on Canadian campuses from
coast to coast, will represent, if put
'into effect by the federal government, a grant of half a million dollars to Canadian students.
One thousand 8800 scholarships
distributed throughout the nine
provinces by provincial boards will
bring higher education to financially embarrassed students In all parts
of the Dominion.
This is the proposition being put to
the Ottawa government by the representatives of the Canadian Student
Assembly, and more particularly by
Paul Martin, M.P. from Essex East
constituency In Ontario. Mr. Martin
has already introduced a bill in the
house twice, in 1937, and again in
1938, asking for consideration for
the project. But, due to lack of interest and support, the resolution introduced was not passed. As early
as 1931 Miss Agnes McPhail, M.P.,
made a resolution that for every
$100 spent on armaments, $600 be
spent  on  education.
Now, today, students throughout
the country have enlisted to support
his Justification drive for state subsidy of eduoatlon. And, ln Ottawa,
many members of the house are already hearing plenty about the campaign from their own constituents
back  home where high schools, pub-

Dr. H. R. Trumpour, Principal of
the Anglican Theological College, has
announced that all applications for
Leonard Scholarships for the next
year should be made as soon as possible.
They should be in the first week
in March at the latest and as sometimes the applicants take son.e time
ln getting necessary details those applying must do so immediately.
Support the scholarship campaign! You oan do so by getting
a card at the foot of the oaf stairs
today at noon. Two thousand will
be given out. All you have to do
Is to sign one card whloh will be
sent to the Hon. Norman Rogers,
Dominion Minister of Labour, and
sign the other, addressing It to
your local M.P. No postage Is required. Do your part for the national scholarships and get your
card now.
One further clause was appended
to the new Eligibility Rules at the
meeting Monday evening. This was
to apply to the cases of students who
feel that their case has not had a
fair hearing and deserves a second
In such a case the Chairman of

KINGSTON, Ont. (C.U.P.)—Culmination of several months
of active campaigning to secure public endorsation and financial
assistance for the Canadian Student Assembly's National Scholarships Campaign, was marked by a regional conference of assembly
executives at Queen's University, Jan. 21 and 22. Those represented were the universities of McGiil, Montreal, Toronto and
On tbe basis of the support already
secured, the C.S.A. felt Justified In
proceeding with its plans for a,student delegation to Ottawa on Maroh
6, to keep a pre-arranged engagement with the Hon. Norman MoLeod
Rogers. The Assembly expects to
have a crowd of 300 university students who will make up the delegation. At the same time a regional
conference of university students in
this area will form the content of a
busy week-end in Ottawa. Tentative
subjects of discussion at the conference will be education, national
unity, foreign policy, youth hostels
and eo-operattves, relation of students and staff and ourrloulum. Having elected from their number a capable group of representatives, those
will aot for the whole student body
in the discussions with the government. It is hoped that as a result
of   the   discussions   a   government

our most brilliant Junior Matriculants live In the outlying districts
of the Province snd are unable to
attend   the   University   because  of
the expense for board and transportation    In    addition    to    fees,

Progress Made
In Scholarship
Campaign Here
Climaxed  by  the  enthusiastic  reception  given  lt  by  the  Vanoouver
Board of Trade, the UB.C. National
Scholarship Publicity Campaign has
up to date met with suooess far sur
passing the hopes of Its sponsors. To
a circular letter sent out by the oommittee less than two weeks ago, there
have already been about twenty re
sponses, from major organisations In
the city, all of them favorable, and
practically all oi them making definite arrangements for an address on
the subject of National Scholarships
by a University student ln the very
near future.
Clubs and organisations contacted
are Informed of the alms and objects
of the campaign, and asked to pass
resolutions  In  support  of  the  proposed Scholarship Fund of $800,000.
These  resolutions  are  forwarded  to
the B.O.  members of the House of
Commons   In   Ottawa.   In   addition,
prominent   members   and   exeoutive
officers of the organisations are asked to send individual letters and petitions to members of Parliament at
Ottawa,    seeking    support    for    the
Scholarship   Bill   when   It   ls   introduced ln the House early in March.
Influential    organisations    which
have Already given endorsation to
the proposal Include the Board of
Trade,    Vancouver    Sohool   Board,
Kinsmen   Club,   Vancouver   branch
of the National Council of Eduoatlon,   Provincial  Command,   Canadian   Legion,   Duo   Club,   Faculty
• Womens' Club of the University of
B.C.,  Point    Grey    Branoh   of  the
Canadian  Legion,  and  the  League
of Nations Society.
In   addition,   promises   of   support
have come from the B.C. Branch of
the Retail Merchants' Association ot
Canada,   Provincial   Parent   Teacher
Association and other P.T.A. groupa,
B.C.    Teachers'    Federation,    Junior
Board   of   Trade,   New   Westminster
and   Vanoouver   Rotary   Olubs,   New
Westminster     Klwanis     Club    and,
through the co-operation of the University Teacher Training Olass, practically all of the Student Associations
and Students' Councils in Vancouver
High Schools.
The Musical Society Make-up Department,    under    the    direction    of
Vera Radcliffe, has been learning the
fine art of "seeing that a little bit of
powder, a little bit of paint, makes a
Serenader seem what he ain't."
The   regular  olasses  In  this  department   learn, the   general   principles    in  their   first   four or  Ave
lessons.   Onoe   the   principles   have
been mastered, eaoh member of the
cast of the "Serenade" will be minutely analysed as regards make-up.
Separate   cards   for   each   member
have been prepared with every detail
of   their   make-up   requirements   set
On the nights of the performance,
the Serenader has only to take his
card around to the technicians, each
specialized in one section of the
make-up—for example, the eyebrows,
lips, etc.
Ry this method, efficiency will be
combined wtth speed, and the Serenade will go on with no false notes
...  or wrong faces.
The    classes    include    Jean    Fitch,
Renee    Le    Blanc,    Hattle    Staghall.

commission will be set up very short-
1> to study the problem ot "state"
scholarships, the need for these and
the means of their distribution.
The  week-end  in  Ottawa will   be
preceded by a concentrated National
Scholarships' Week. Features ot this
week will be Transcontinental radio
hook-ups,     Canadian     and     student,
press   releases,   articles   in   popular.:
magaslnea,  colorful  posters,  student,
dances,    amateur    nights,    financial...
campaigns,   tag  days,  letters  by  all
students to their members of parliament, and in general every kind. of.
activity which the ingenuity of Canadian students can muster to give Impetus to  their campaign.
The students have not been inactive in their provincial fields. Some
of the western provincial governments are already firmly behind the
campaign. In trips to Ottawa and
Quebec during the past week. Dr.
Orant Lathe, the national secretary
of tbe C.S.A., and Jean Langlols,
chairman of the University of Montreal Assembly, were able to Interview
many members of the provincial and
federal houses. Amongst these were
included the ministers Oagnon, Beau-
chase, Bllodeau of the Quebec Legislature, who regard the scholarship*
campaign with favor. Monselgneur
Camllle Roy, Rector of Laval University, also endorsed the work very
heartily. The directors of the Youth
Training Conference which ls being
held at Ottawa were also interviewed  with   favorable  results.
As a whole, university and high
school principals, studenta, staff
members, men's and women's service
clubs, labor organizations, have all
given the student bodies splendid
support ln their endeavor to exti-id
higher education ln Canada . , a
wider group of her capable jiu. :. .\-

This week, all across Canada, culminates the concerted efforts
of a number of groups of students who have been working unselfishly for fruits they themselves will never taste. These groups,
members of the Canadian Student Assembly, have been carrying
on a campaign to direct attention toward their attempts to procure
university training for some of the large number of potentially
useful intellects which year after year go out into the world
only partially utilized because the universities lack the money to
develop them.
The Federal Government has refused support in the past only
l>ocause publio opinion has not been sufficiently insistent. The
Canadian Studont Assembly is at present endeavoring to direct
the expression of the public's opinion to the Federal Government
at the time when the Scholarship bill is being considered.
The local group of the C.S.A. have formed a committee under
the chairmanship of Clarence Idyll, which has been carrying on a
campaign of unusual force and thoroughness. All the city and
surrounding schools have heard student speakers and have pledged
their support as students, teachers and principals; almost every
city service club has asked for speakers and has written a letter
of support; outlying groups and schools have been approached by
letter and have replied with enthusiasm; members of the faculty
are svipporting the committee heartily. Altogether the committee
has done a tremendous amount of work and done it successfully.
And now the committee is coming to the students for a final
request for support. They have devised a simple method whereby
the students can register their request for scholarships. They are
asking students to sign stamped postcards nnd send them to their
local Member of Parliament. Students, particularly thos»> who
reached Varsity with financial difficulty themselves, will realize
that in signing these cards they are helping to give deserving
-students an opportunity to obtain the higher education they need
4o develop their native abilities.
With the announcement made last week of tho Governor's.
*grnnt to the Brock Memorial Union Building fund, a dream of
almost twenty years about to be realized. For it was approximately
twenty years ago that the U.B.C. women first visioned a cosy home
where they might gather around a fire side. Since then, principally
"through the efforts of Dean Bollert who carried on tho dream from
year to year, the women alone have collected over half of the
money exclusive of the Governor's grant.
The Union building has been a catch phrase for so many years,
that it has come to have almost no actual connotation. Or rather
the students hove tried so hard and waited so long that the name
""union building" means hope deferred and efforts unrewarded,
rather than a building of their very own.
But whether we roalissc it or not, council's statement that
"In two weeks' time we will present the Brock Memorial Building Committee with complete plans for tho financing and construction of the Union Building," means thnt men will begin to dig a
foundation for the long anticipated structure, at the first thaw.
It also means thnt throe quarters of us will lounge in the main hall
nnd hold club meetings in spccinl quarters, whon we return next
To all of us it means tho fruition of a hope we and our alumni
.have held in our hearts for many long years.
To those university students who do not know any better we
might suggest that tlio exhibition of rowdyism in the hockey game
pep meeting held in tho auditorium Thursday noon was beyond
all regulations of good manners and good sense.
Apparently some students, reputed to be sciencemen, filled
the gallery at the mooting and showered Trevor Paige's orchestra
and the stage with snowballs, to say nothing of interrupting the
songs of tho orchestra's feature singer with their yells.
Jt is understood from reliable authority that if, in the future,
students have not the discretion to refrain from such things ns
hurling snowballs, or any other type of missile which might cause
damage, the stage will be closed to all student affairs of this kind.
One snowball hit the bass violin, and could have caused dam-
nge. The interruption of a feature singer is also unpardonable.
Any less genial loader than Trevor Paige would havo withdrawn
his'orchestra at once ... in fact such n state of affairs almost
existed, at ono point in the meeting.
If we at the university nre, to expect people to eome from
-lowntown away out to West Point Grey just for our entertainment, ihen we will have to learn better manners than were exhibited at Thursday's pep meeting.

1. U.B.C. Is Deeply Religious.
All good little U.B. Cissies devoutly
worship an army of Ooda known as
SCIENCEMEN. These gods oan usually be seen on a clear day smoking
their pipes and chanting the
MEN stand over 6'2" and are worshipped because they Know How To

Artsmen, a lower form of creation
who are Just so much dirt. Artsmen

The above ia especially true at
football games where Varsity students can be heard calling for their
favorite food, a type of bread known
as  the "Varsity Roll."
5. U.B.C. Is Generous.
Each year the Thunderbirds make
the Viotorla Rugby Union a preaent
of a brand new pair of goal posts,
and are even considerate enough to
remove the old ones.
Shouting their theme song, "Hell
U.B.C," some 300 odd U.B.Clsslea
dashed off the good ship "Princess
Norah," intent on invading Victoria
and Esquimau.
Piling into nearby busses they were
whisked to Macdonald Park where
they immediately tangled with the
Vic College rugby squad and subsequently the Victoria Crimson Tide
which ebbed considerably ln the face
of the  enemy.
The football teams ascribed their
losses to the diabolical cunning of
the Varsity Band which Insisted on
rendering a selection every time Victoria was In a position to score.
With superhuman energy the
Thunderbirds then tore the goalposts
from the sod of MacDonald and bore
them triumphantly thru the bypaths
of our city. Another busload disgorged itself upon the Empress Hotel
where a pleasant 3 hours -were
whl'«-d away dancing and waiting to
check coats. Len Acres orchestra
supplied the muslo, and assorted
Varsity jitterbugs added to the general confusion.
In the High School gym that night,
Victoria regained some of its lost
face when the Dominoes trounoed
the Varsity basket aquad 44-16.
Meanwhile Evan apRoberts, leader
of the Invaders, had gathered up his

In time to oarry them on the boat
before the gangplank went up. Much
credit is due Mr. apR. for this
humane act.
As the boat pulled away, Victoria
showed Its unselfish spirit by presenting the invaders with a dozen of
the city's finest eggs. It ls rumoured
that the Thunderbirds Intend to
make some suitable presentation ln
return next year.

The "Jupiter", Mozart's last symphony, has all the power and drive
of the preceding one, ln O Minor, but
not its tragic implications. It is permeated throughout by Joyful, bounding exhilaration and gracious melodic
beauty. The finale ls one of the most
broadly constructed and finely proportioned conceptions of the eighteenth century, combining the fugue
with the sonata ln five masterful

lie executive bodies and organizations are being approached and asked to signify to Ottawa their approval and support of the campaign.
If this drive ls successful there
will be at least 75 scholarships for
B.C. students going to the university, which will be somewhere around
$37,000 ln  value.
The committee believes that, with
many more students able to get higher education, the facilities for education will eventually be somewhat
extended . . . and B.C.'s university
wtll be a larger, more Important Institution because lt will give servloe
to a wider section of the public. Thus
this is the flrst step ln a drive of a
long term nature to give all studenta
of the future all the eduoatlon they
desire if they are fitted for and desire It, even If they are financially
With this ln mind many oampus
clubs   have   offered   their   support.
The Players Club, the B.C. Teachers Federation, the Parliamentary
Forum,   the    Political    Discussion
Club,  the  Law  Sooiety,  the   Newman Club,   the   Radio   Club,   the
Menorah   Club,   the   Biology   Club,
and the S.C.M. are amongst these.
President Kllnck, and many members  of the Faculty,  have  expressed
their endorsement of the drive.
Reasons for this campaign may
be found ln detail under the column
"Here And There."
Meanwhile, the local committee haa
today some two thousand free endorsement postcards, double sided,
for you to sign to be sent to Ottawa.
One side is addressed to Hon. Norman Rogers, Minister of Labour, and
the other is blank, for the name of
your local member. All you have to
do is to sign your name twice and
put the name of your local member
on one side . . . then drop lt Into the
mall box. You will find them at the
bottom of the  caf stairs.

"Oh Lord, there goes that bell!
Well, Bertie c'mon old thing, we
must forth and strive for dear old
Alma Mater ln the Bl. Lab. Smelly
thing, that lab place. I wonder why
they don't spray It with lavender
water, or 4711 or something of the
sort. Think how much more eagerly
people would oome to these things.
Can't you Just see them, all tumbling
in in clusters and things, wondering
If they are going to have another
nasal treat in the shape of Fleur de
Jasmine, or something of that sort?
I remember, in Montreal, in those
little perfume shops, you merely have
to stroll ln, and they, gather round
you, all those pretty little girls,
y'know, and spray a dab of thla and
that under your lapel . . . awfully
jolly; you go out smelling like a bally
flower-shop, d'you see 7
Oh, yes. Well . . . what's on the
menu today? H'mmm, dissecting a
clam. I dent see why I should, I
mean to say, I never had any hard
feelings against the little creatures.
Oh, all right sir, I was Just starting.
Bertie, why does he wear rubber
shoes ?
■ I suppose we draw lt flrst, on the
half-shell, as it were. Here goes.
Never let it be said in the Caf that
Algernon shirked his clams. H'mmm,
that goes that way, and so on. . . .
I say Bertie, do look! No, not at the
clam, you ass, across the row. Isn't
she lovely! I wonder what year she's
In, D'you know, by any chanoe 7
Third? And she flunked Bi. last
year? Oh well, perhaps It's Just aa
well. Isn't it absolutely marvellous,
old dear, how Fate works these
things out. I mean to say, fanoy her
coming here in the flrat place, and
taking this stuff, and failing, and
coming back, and sitting just there!
Kismet, and all that sort of stuff.
No, Bertie, definitely not a pun. I
don't pun. I think a pun ia the lowest form of degraded humour. Definitely not at all punny. Ohh, dash it
all, there I go again.
Here comes that assistant. Dirty
look in his eye. The eye that's looking at me. Well, I'm drawing. At
least, I'm starting. I wonder what
he's looking at me so long for.
What's that? My pencil's upside
down? Oh, er, thanks very much.
Slip of the tongue, and all that.
Now what? My hat, Bertie, we've
got to cut the wretched thing open!
Yes, you can do lt. Absolutely. No
objections at all. I mean, If you're
going to be a doctor or whatever It
is, you'd better practice up. Opportunity knocking again, y'know. . . ,
Do we actually eat things like that?
They seem rather different In soup,
I suppose It's the plate, or something.
Did you ever eat clams, Berlte? No?
It's really awfully Jolly. You all sit
around on the beach ln the evening,
don't y'know, and sing songs, and
eat crackers and clams, and . . .
and  ... so on.
Suppose you draw it and I'll copy
it out afterwards. How about lt, eh?
Oh, come now Bertie, you know
you're ever so muoh better at it than
me. Born with a pencil In your
mouth, and all that. Think of that
picture you drew of our High School
teacher. I thought it waa very good.
She didn't, though. Said it was rude.
H'mmm . . . oouldn't I pun something about a striking resemblance?
Put down that lanoet, Bertie, I was
merely pulling your leg. I never pun.

Their argument pointed out that
lower rates would be the result of
public ownership of utilities, showing
that bonds of publloally owned companies were always retired, while
those of privately owned companies
were retained, and only interest paid,
thereby keeping the original debt at
Its peak.
Their fellow students, Paul Volpe
and Bob Smith, attacked the affirmative arguments with vigor, but
failed to convince the Judges, who
gave their opponents a unanimous

years ln the atudy ot problems affecting Russia. She now spends $2,000,-
000,000 annually on research and
scholarships, an amount larger than
any other Item on her budget, even
military and defence.
Turning to Europe, Denmark offers
an outstanding example of the use
of scholarships to promote Industrial
efficiency. Denmark, leading the
world ln dairy and poultry products,
is Canada's principal competitor In
the export of bacon. This position Is
unquestionably due ln some part to
the policy of the Danish government
ln regard to agricultural schools and
colleges. Scholarships are granted to
young people over eighteen years of
age on the oondltion that they return
to the farms to serve in positions of
leadership. Up to one half the annual
enrollment consists of students who
are receiving scholarships of sufficient value that the poorest are able
to attend.
Turning to the British Empire, we
find In New Zealand, a situation that
commands attention. Here Is a sister
Dominion of a population one-tenth
of that of Canada, but with considerably more foresight than Canada
In this regard. This small country
haa for the past ten years given free
education to an average of 2,000 students. This assistance Includes tuition fees plus $300 thrown ln for good
Quoting from the Brief of the O.
S. A. to the Rowell Commission,
"Again ln the field of research, Canada might profit from the examples
set by other nations. After 1930-31,
the scholarship contributions from
the Dominion Oovernment to the
National Research Council declined
from $58,030 to as low as $0,160 ln
1933-34, the lowest point since the
first two years after the counoil was
officially recognized by statute (1917).
"In 1934-35, the amount was Increased slightly to $11,820, and ln
1035-30 to $13,205. Altogether the annual expenditure upon the National
Research Council ls $500,000. This
figure ls one-fiftieth of the amount
tequired for Canada to obtain the
research level held by Russia at the
present time. On the ratio of comparison based on the population figures of the two countries, we should
have 2,000 men engaged ln research
ln the National Researoh Oounoil,
where there are but 160 men at present."
It is acutely evident here again
that Canada does not take seriously
the question of leadership training.
At any rate, the Dominion Government has not shown any Initiative
in undertaking responsibility on this
vital queation.

Gonzaga 'Dogs Play 'Birds Tonight
Free Skating Follows
Game  With Spokane
Tonight the long awaited return game between U.B.C, Thunderbirds and Gonzaga Bulldogs'takes place at the Forum at 8.00
o 'clock.
Three weeks ago, when the Varsity boys traveled down to
Spokane to play the Gonzaga squad, the encounter proved to be
one of the best of tho season.    m	
Although the U.B.C. lads oame out
aecond best, tonight on their home
ice they should show the visiting
team a thing or two. Slnoe two of
Varsity's ace players will be out with
injuries—fast centre Orme Dier with
a dislooated elbow and stalwart de-
fenoeman Angi Provensano with a
dislocated shoulder, Coaeh Frith has
reassembled the team.
The first string forwards will be
Jim Ussher centering Maroel and
Charles Ouiguet, and the new seoond
line will be oomposed of Jaok Mao-
Arthur, Norman Gill, and Austin
Frith. Maury Lambert, Jim Harmer,
and Jaok Moxon will share defence
positions in the battle tonight. Bill
Kapak will be utility man, and he
Is plenty useful.
The Gonsaga team rates high in
the inter-colleglate olrcuit. Moat of
their players are former Junior stars
from the Canadian provinces.
In the last tilt between the two
squads the thunderbirds tired after
a long boat and train grind and crippled with Injuries as a result of a
game with the Cubs the night before, lost 10-3 to their fresh opponents.
At that they held the Bulldogs to
a 2-2 tie until well on ln the seoond
period when the strain began to tell.
Tonight's game will be no set-up
for the highly-touted machine from
across the line. The Thunderbirds
won't be at full strength, but they're
all ready to fight like four hundred
wildcats and the Bulldogs will really
have to show their goods to turn in
a oonvlnoing win	
Tomorrow, nt 2.30, Varsity Thunderbirds will attempt to
maintain their winning streak against the highly touted Meraloma
squad when the two clubs tangle at the Stadium. Johnny Owens,
«enial maestro of the moss, swears that he will have his field in
perfect shape despite hail, rain, snow, ete,, so fear not the elements
dear studes.

Clark through Illness. For the winners Gross got 9, Menzies 7, and Barton 8, while Les Martin led the losers
with 7.
Ed Benson, left and Al Gardner on the right are two Thunderbirds
who hall from country centres and without whom their respective Varsity
clubes wouldn't be nearly co effective. Benson, starry goaltender from
Klmberley, is the last line ot defense for the Blue and Oold pucksters who
oppose Oonsaga Bulldogs tonight at the Forum. Gardner, who calls Alberta
hla home, Is one ot Coach A. B. Carey's best sorum men. He will be In
the thick of the fray tomorrow on the Stadium when the Thunderbird
ruggerltes meet Meralomaa,
A powerful Seattle College quintette is next on the roster for
the battling men of the maple court. They tackle the Americans
in an exhibition tilt in the Campus Gym, today noon. The
Collegians, who were on the Varsity calling list when they went
south in January will provide an interesting exhibition in smooth
basketball, claiming victories over St. Martin's who downed the
Blue and Gold in the Gym, Tuesday.	
The game was a rather desultory
affair in its early stages with Coach
Van Vliet benching his regulars and
handing St. Martin's an 18-5 lead ln
the opening canto. At this point the
regulars, who were being kept under
wraps for the Wednesday tilt with
Stacey's and the Saturday one with
Tookes and also the Friday game
with Seattle College were shoved Into the game and brought the o,ount
up to 29-24 at the breather, the Americana still holding a slight lead.
They  held  that  lead   all   throught
the rest of the tilt which ended with
the final soore reading 44-40.

brother Joe Snow don't band together and make it a dull afternoon
all round for the ruggerltes, U.B.C.
will meet Rowing Club Saturday at
Brookton Point in a regular Miller
mug mixture.
As it happens, this week is a good
week to have a tussle with the Rowers as they will be without at least
Ave of their regular lineup. Half of
the Red and White aggregation
were crippled in the reoent game
with Varsity on the Stadium, and
consequently they have had to borrow liberally from Seoond Division
The scrappy U.B.C. aggregation,
fresh from an Invasion viotory over
Victoria College, will be sporting almost the same young blood as before. The only change ln the backfleld will see Bob Smith return to
his regular left-wing-three berth replacing Fred Smith who has been
moved up to the first team.
The forwards have not yet been
selected, but lt ls certain that the
Blue and Oold boys will be without
Noel Harrison, consistent forward,
-who has also been shifted back to
the Thunderbird  team.
