the enforcing of the card-playing
rule and the forming of a discipline court.
McKay believes the new rules
will make the Discipline Committee more effective in the prevention of obnoxious conduct about

Alumni Players Present
Two Plays In Brock Hall
The UBC  Alumni Players will present a  work-shop
performance of one aot plays In the Main Lounge of Brock
HaM an Saturday, December 7 at 8:00 p.m.
The two plays to be presented
ore Kenyon Nicholson's comedy
"Meet the Missus" and the satirically flavored comedy by Noel
Coward "Fumed Oak".
"Meet the Missus" will be directed by Archie Bevln, who has
been prominent as an actor in the
undergraduate and graduate clubs.
The cast includes Jean Christie,
Bud Cummlngs and Olive Head-
Itanuny Lea.  well known stage
manager, will direct "Fumed Oak".
The cast will include Don Wilson.
Shirley Yeo, Betty Byng-Hall and
SaUy Phillips.
Attendance at these plays is
lestricted to Alumni members and
their friends. Refreshments will
be served after the performance.
Members wishing to attend have
been requested to contact Mrs.
Mildred Caple (KErr. 4089-R) or
Mr. Dudley Darling (AL 2829-M).
Campaign plans for selling records  of the university
soags, "Hail UBC", and "My Gal is a Hullabaloo", in aid of
the War Memorial Gymnasium drive are now in progress.
"RCA Victor 'have informed us
that it will be impossible to produce the records before March
1947," states Penn McLeod, head
of the War Memorial committee.
The preleeds will go to the
gymnasium drive. Although nothing is definite yet as to the nature
of fdture campaigns for raising
the balance of the money required
to build the gym, every opportunity will be used.
'Hail UBC" was written and
composed in 1932 by a university
student, Harold King, a teacher
nt Magee High School. He assigned the copyright of this song
to the Alma Mater Society in 1932.
"My Gal is a Hullabaloo" is of
clotlfotfi.il origin.    McLeod  believes
the lyrics and words came from an
American university. However, the
lyrics were changed considerably
from the official UBC version and
made more adaptable for recording purposes.
f"aid McLeod, "We have received
many compliments from the students and general public about the
songs and the way they are pre-
.•sented by the Harmony House Vocalists. We have had offers from
many firms to sell these transcriptions and we have also had many
offers to buy the records from all
ever the city, the interior, and
Vancouver Island.
Many people feel that the university has needed suitable re-
t<<rdings of her famous songs.
A Ubyssey delegation will attend the annual Canadian
University Press conference to be held at the University of
Toronto, December 21, 22 and 23.
Jack Ferry, editor-in-chief of the Ubyssey and Bob
Mungall, CUP editor, go as UBC representatives of the
Canadian University Press with Laurie Dyer, sports editor,
acting as the Ubyssey delegate.
""""*"""*""~—~—""~~"""■""■ At the conference last year the
Ubyssey was made president and
secretary of the CUP, which positions they will fill this year.
Business to be discussed at the
Christmas conference will constitute re-organization of wire ex-
dianges between universities and
the presentation of the Bracken
trophy to the best overall university paper.
The trophy will be presented by
Mr. Gillis Purcell, general manager of Canadian Press and honorary
president of the CUP, on the third
and flnal night of the conference.
Other judges of the university
publications include Mr. Oeorge V.
Ferguson, executive editor of the
Montreal Star; Mr. R. A. Farquar-
eon, managing editor of the Toronto
Globe and Mail, and Mr. Sydney

Editor And USC
Reach Agreement
Complete understanding was
reached at Monday's special meeting of USC when Jack Ferry, representing the Publications Board,
replied to certain complaints about
Totem pictures and Ubyssey coverage.
Engineers had c o m p 1 a ined
through their representative that
they were not receiving the proofs
from their Totem pictures. Complaints had- also been received
from the EUS about Ubyssey co*
erage of student affairs.
Regarding the Totem pictures,
Ferry told the meeting that early
in the summer it had been decided not to send out proofs. A
survey had shown that most of
the students did not want them
badly enough to pay the extra
fee and that last year many had
not bothered to return them on
the date requested.
Concerning the Ubyssey, Ferry
explained how it had been handicapped by extra work through the
Gym Drive and the much en-^
lorged student body. He said that
those who had complained about
the coverage should remember
that they were dealing with college students, not paid employees,
and that if any reporter failed to
cover a certain assignment properly that the editors had no comeback. He asked those at the meeting to watch for the Ubyssey after
Christmas and promised them a
great deal of improvement.
Visit Point Grey
A British Commission of six
British agriculturists who have just
completed a tour of the United
States visited the university yesterday.
Their North American tour, arranged by the Minister of Agriculture in the British Government
and the Secretary of State for
Scotland, was for the purpose of
investigating progress in the development of the poultry industry
in the United States and Canada
during recent years. They will examine in particular the stock improvement scheme in both countries.
Those visiting the university
were Dr. R. Coles, Dr. A. W.
Greenwood, R. F. Gordon, C. Heo-
derwick, J. Sutton and G. Sykes.
They were entertained at a luncheon In Brock HaU by President
N. A. M. MacKenzie, Dean F. M.

Housing Shceme
Well UnderWay
The Little Mountain housing
.scheme is progressing ver favorably, says Dr. Gordon M. Shrum,
head of the Extension Department,
nnd is expected to go a long way
towards meeting the urgent necv-
of married students.
A', present, there are forty student famlies living in the unfinished .buildings at Little Mountain. However, Dr. Shrum stited.
thirty-two suites are nearly completed and some forty more are
expected to be available by th"
beginning of next term.
Thirty-one huts of varying sizes
have been taken over by the university, including the former officers' mess, the CWAC quarters
.-nd the sergeants' mess and quarters.
It is the iiim of thc extension
department to keep the administration costs down as low as pos
s'.ble in order to keep the rental
down. '"This is a non-profit
scheme" said Dr. Shrum. "and
the rents which now range from
$20 to |25 per month may be lowered after a time." It is essvntial
however, that the scheme carry
it? own operating costs, he added
After consultation with AMS
executives, the UBC branch of th:?
Canadian Legion has decided to
recommend to the other Canadian
universities, that, instead of holding a separate veterans' conference
the NFCUS be broadened to include student -  veteran affairs.
Legion executives feel that such
a conference would, among other
things, promote harmonious relations between veteran and non-
veteran students by working together.
Although the Legion branch on
the campus has been asked to participate in the National Conference of Student Veterans, they
feel that while much could be accomplished at such a meeting, it
would not be enough to warrant
the cost and difficulty of holding
another conference.
lt is hoped that other universities and their veterans' organizations will subscribe to the proposal, but as yet the only reply
has come from McGill who favor a separate conference.
Maguire Stresses
Need For Unity
Paul Maguire, noted Australian
author and war correspondent, in
his talk in Arts 100 Tuesday, said
he believed the British Commonwealth was facing a critical sHu-
"It works well now but it should
work better." he stated.
His belief was that a new conception of tht system is possible
in which it could be called, no.
the British Commonwealth, but
•The Commonwealth."
When questioned on the anna
ment policy of such a common
wealth, Maguire said that it would
have to submit to the same international control as other countries.
Maguire, who is a noted author-
ity on the Pacific area told his interested audience that there is .>
great future for intelligent writing about this area. He said that
there is practically no Pacific literature and that publishing houses
are on the lookout for authors
who are interested in the Pacific.
Maguire's talk was sponsored by
the Parliamentary Forurr.
Legion Proposes
Alternate Plan
The Legion hae a plan for stud-ants who will suffer from a decision to discontinue the special
Spring session in 1947 The Plan is
now in faculty hands, and if it
is adopted, all prospective students
will be Interviewed by the campus
Veterans' Advisor, prior to their
taking the course.
In a recent survey, the names
of those wishing to attend a special session were passed to President N. A. M. MacKenzie. Fran,
the results of this survey, it was
definitely decided to rule the
Spring session out.
But if the Legion plan is recommended by faculty heads, it
will cere for those who would
normally have suffered from thc
no-Spring session ruling.

Christmas for most university students
is not entirely a matter for rejoicing, because
that old devil exams, usually competes with
St. Nick for top billing.
In some parts of the country, students
write exams and then go home to try to
enjoy Christmas while they worry about the
results. In other parts, the students go home
for Christmas and worry about the approaching exams. In a few remote sections
there just aren't any Christmas exams. Depending on your point of viev/, those colleges are either enlightened or defatist.
Here at UBC, the exams-before-Christmas
routine does little good but provide more
people with an excuse to put off shopping
until the last minute. It's simply amazing
how many aunts and uncles run second to
calculus and irregular verbs.
One of lite serious disadvantages in the
situation is always felt most keenly by The
Ubyssey, for it becomes necessary for us to
extend the appropriate season's greetings at
nn inappropriate time when most students
h*ve very few moments or little opportunity
tc receive them with due decorum.
That, however, is something which we
must all accept as unavoidable. In that light,
The Ubyssey asks all students to join with
the paper in observing Christmas early.
First, to all of our undergraduate readers,
let us wish you a Merry Christmas and a
Happy New Year.
In equal measure those sincere greetings
go. to the Administration, Faculty, and Staff
of the University, with our warmest greetings of all being despatched earnestly to
those professors and assistants who will be
marking the exams. To them we say
"Here's to a saner and safer Christmas, and
another year."
Not so long ago the Parliamentary Forum passed unanimously a
lesolution favoring the return of
Japanese to UBC. The fact that the
Forum was unanimous does not
mean that the student body as a
whole is in agreement with the
resolution—witness a letter to the
editor from D. C. Young.
This is a matter that needs careful consideration, for, If we are
to allow one portion of them back,
how are we to prevent the return
of all Japanese to the coast?
Charges of panic, war emergency,
persecution, misunderstanding, misrepresentation and prejudice have
flown around every argument that
has ever taken place concerning
the Japanese question.
There was no panic, when, in
1942, the Japanese were relocated.
Any nation—yes, even a democracy
—has the right to defend itself.
The removal of the Japanese was
undertaken in the darkest hour of
t ur War Emergency. The people of
this province and their leaders saw
that the only means of being assured that the "bad Japs" were out
of harm's way was the removal of
all Japs. The problem was solved
after much worry, but hardly any
Persecution never entered into
the question. The problem revolved
mound whether cr not a nation
has the power to defend itself, and
the answer reached was "Yess."
There Are Japs, and Japs

"From an economic point of view, the
most interesting fact about the students of
the University of British Columbia is that
most of them earn all or part of their expenses while obtaining their degrees. In a
survey conducted in 1941, 894 out of 1020
students queried applied their summer
earnings toward their fees. Thus nearly 90'.
of the students work their way through
college. ... It is obvious from the figures
above quoted that the University. . .

Scene: The Student Council Chamber,
Brock Hall. The costly tapestries and luxurious rugs which once enriched the
Chamber have been removed and splendid
trappings of this legislative hall are nowhere   in   evidence.   A   few   hard-backed
chairs and a scarred kitchen table are the
only furnishings in the room. Upon the table
is a cheap enamelled jug, flanked by three
earthenware mugs. The jug is filled with
plain, brackish, undolmanated water. The
general atmosphere is one of respectable
poverty, soapy, scrubbed and completely
cheerless. The only note of colour is a red-

on which is inscribed the slogan: "FROM

Most certainly we had fear—the
Jeps were in Kiska, and shelled
Estevan — remember? Hie people
of B.C. who were associated with
the Japanese had seen too many
of the young "Japanese-Canadians"
return to the land of their fathers
for the express purpose of taking
military training, and the people
of B.C. had seen too many of these
fine young men come.back with
their outlook completely altered
to be able to rest easily with Jap
enigma in their midst.
The misunderstanding that is
claimed to be a .jart of our supposed prejudice is quite probably
the fault of no one—the Japanese
ore more than another race, they
are another civilization, and as
such it is too much to ask us to
understand them completely.
The Japanese have never been
misrepresented to people of a discerning mind. We knew that
among the Japanese on this coast
there were many good Japanese—
we hope a majority. We also knew,
however, that there were quite a
number  of  "bad"   Japanese.  The
problem of telling which was which
was far too difficult and would
have taken far too long to solve-
even Japanese families were split
it- their ideologies.
A cartoon that appeared during
the war showed the situation very
aptly: A Japanese was shown standing, dressed in morning clothes and
carrying a cane, beside another
identical Japanese. The second one,
however, was wearing a uniform
and carried a sword. The caption
asked: "Who can tell a Jap from a
If these immigrants would renounce their dual citizenship, stop
raising doubt as to their loyalty—
i-s some did, and others were happily prevented from doing so by
their removal, and refused and forbidden to accept wages less than
the Canadian standard for the jobs
they are doing, then let them come
back to British Columbia.
Yes every nation, including a
democratic one, has the right to
protect the majority—If necessary,
at   the   expense   of   a   minority.

Students Prefer Honor
System To Invigilators
"Thou shalt not cheat during examination^', could well
be the eleventh commandment so far as students on the
University of British Columbia campus are concerned.
By a slim majority, they prefer signing an "on your
honor" agreement to having a supervisor during examinations—if the opinion of 75 coeds and men, whose names were
picked at random from the Student Directory, is typical,
other   hand,   faculty
On    the
members who were questioned on
the matter nearly all stuck up for
the proctor system, probably on
the basis of hoary-headed experience.
Undergraduates who were questioned, however, were able to give
an unprejudiced opinion, aa they
have had little exposure to the
system. Beyond a light rash of
editorial comment that had broken
out In the past, The Ubyssey back-
flies failed to reveal much of interest on the matter.
At Stanford University, one of
its most famous strong-holds, the
honor code was the crux of a
bitter 30-year flght waged between
student representatives and an
over-bearing faculty committee,
which believed neither in the hon*
or of the undergraduates nor in
their ability to govern themselves.
A series of four articles recently
published in the Stanford Daily
points out that 1) cheating at Stanford has become practically impossible, and 2) after 25 years of
use the system is still popular.
Their code requires each student
to sign a contract which reads, "No
unpermitted aid given or received
during examination." Actually this
means not only not looking at anyone else's paper, but also not
letting anyone else get away with
Rejoiner of UBC students who
were asked to explain their preference for the honor system varied
irom a forthright objection to Invigilators pacing the aisles, to an
idealistic, we - can - look-after-our-
selves attitude.
Emerson' Gennis, 3rd year Commerce, felt the code would work
satisfactorily here et the present
time because of the high percentage of ex-service students on the
campus who ''were of a higher
caliber than the former, or coon-
skin coUege type."
Contrarily, navy veteran Bill
Hipwell, tod year Arts, preferred
the proctor system because there
aren't many students who would
tell on a fellow student and the
student body is far from 100 percent honest.
Representatives of coeds who
were queried was Beverly Roberts,
2nd year Arts. "Even if the student
did not feel like cheating, I think
a supervisor has a good psychological effect on them," she declared.
A completely original note was
struck by Engineer and veteran
Art Hobson, who felt that not only

should UBCs proctor system be
changed, but also that the examination papers themselves shoula be
revlseo to make explanations of
their procedure unnecessary.
Contrarily, the more mature
faculty, who spoke from experience
A3 both students and as invigilators,
believed almost to a man that the
honor code sounded good, but was
apt to put an innocent bystander
"on the spot"
Very few of the valuable books
missing from the library have been
returned to date, states Miss
Lanning of the Library staff, and
severe action may have to be taken
in order to avoid further trouble
of this type.
According to Dr. Lamb, many
of the books are expected to turn
up after the Christmas exams, but
during that time many students are
going to have to go without many
necessary text and reference books.
"It's too bad," said the library
head, "that these students should
be hampered by the selfish, unsocial practices of a few students
who consider their needs greater
than those of all others in the
Dr. Lambe stated that if appeals
to the higher senses of the defaulters fail to gain any response,
the library may have to cut down
on such student privileges as the
use of stacks. "This is an unfortunate action to have to take," said
Dr. Lamb, "but something will
have to be done."

Vikings, Pacific Lutherans To Invade
For Double Bill With 'Bird Hoopsters
Just to finish of! the period of exams, the Thunderbird hoopla artists are extending
a formal invitation to all the tired and worn students of UBC to attend a couple of casaba
tilts on the maples of the Varsity gym on Dec. 20 and 21. They will meet Western Washington
in a return battle and the next night, they take on the new entry from Pacific Lutheran.
But when the 'Birdmen take to the courts next, they will at least do so without one wing
tied behind their backs.

Reporters This Issue:
Hal  Tennant,   Ron  Freudiger,   Nev Tompkins.'
One of the big problems around Christmas time has to
do with that terrific supper, and what to do about it after-
wards. In fact, it is very often none too easy to get up the
next day if there is nothing very special to do when you do
get up. In order to give sport fans something to do on that
particular day, the Rugby Union has planned another thirteen
man battle between Varsity and Vancouver.
This is indeed something to see.
In the last tussle, the Vancouver
squad   defeated   Varsity   on   a
Thanksgiving Day card, and so the
Blue and Oold rugger kids are out
for revenge .
The gala battle will aee two more
stars in action with the team, as
Don Nesbit and Doug Raid turn
from American grid career back io
the rugger field. The rest of the
dependable* that have taken Varsity to the top of the MiUor Cup race
in the regular schedule will also
be ln there fighting for UBC.
The fracas is to be played according to the new rules which
were inaugurated at the Thanksgiving tlH. There wul be only
thirteen men in action instead of
the regular fifteen, and the teams
are allowed substitutions. This
helps to give added speed to a
game which is already one of the
fastest outdoor games of today.
Besides the fact that fifty percent of the proceeds will go to the
Gym Fund, the spectators themselves will get a chance to share
the wealth. Prizes will be awarded
to lucky ticket holders by way of
a raffle to be held at the game.
Prizes will include a refrigerator
valued at, $350 as well as 25 prizes
in the form of nylons. Although
they may he a little late for
Christmas presents, they will undoubtedly be very acceptable to
anyone who is lucky enough to
have their number drawn.

Hockey Squad
Drops Contest
Varsity's grass hockey men did
credit to themselves when eight of
the campus stick-wielders came
to Brockton, saw the full-strength
Vancouver team, and conquered by
a 3-2 margin on Saturday afternoon.
Until the last few minutes of the
game, both teams were deadlocked
with a tie-up of two goals each.
And not until immediately before
the flnal whistle did the balance
tip in favor of the short-handed
The UBC grass hockey team
fought through an equally close
contest with the North Shore crew,
but finally bowed out when the
northerners netted the only goal
of the game.
This loss, however, has not
ousted the UBC eleven from top
spot in the league standings. Their
Varsity brethern are close on their
heels in the second slot, and show
position at present is held by the
Vancouver Club.
Frosh Ruggerkids
ln*Tough Contest
Plenty of speed and a spirited
second half rally were the chief
faqtars that gave UBC's Frosh
rugger fifteen a 8-3 win over a
heavier Meraloma crew at Douglas
Park on Saturady afternoon.
The freshmen had trouble coping
with the aggressive 'Lomas in the
opening stanza, and consequently
found themselves entering the
second half with three points
against them.
But the campusmen came through
with a couple of old college trys,
one by Dick Kopatic and another
by Ray Adams. Captain Don
Codville did one point's worth of
boot honors, and the first year
men were definitely In the win
Students are warned by the

Last Friday and Saturday nights,
a rangy crew of Webfoots overran
the UBC casaba boys by embarrassing scores ol88-41 and 73-37.
But Harry Kermode and Nev
Munro—two good arguments for
Itiundexbird potency—received last
minute cancellations of plane passage and their teammates had to
face the foe without the two capable artists.
However, the 'Birdmen should
have a full-strength roster to
throw into battle when the Western

Roundball Kids To Meet
United Crew In Cup Tie
THE UBYSSEY, Thursday, December 5, 1946.   Page 5.
The V and D soccer league
moves into the first round proper
of the Mainland Cup Ties this
codling Saturday with two of the
District league clubs being matched against powerful representatives of the Coast League, However, the first division Varsity
team will have to wait at least
another week for their supreme
test against the big leaguers of
coast soccer.
But in an endeavor to keep the
victory lamp burning the Blue and
Gold Bombers will play a cup tie
with the powerful and unpredictable Vancouver United crew at
Larwill Park at 2:30 pjn.
On the strength of last Saturday's 0-0 rout of Grandview Legion
both the Vancouver United and
Coast league teams will have to
step fast and often to stem the
campus onslaught.
Paced by Jimmy Gold, ex of
Nanaimo, the Varsity aggregation
scored almost at will with Gold
personally accounting for 5 markers. On the upper stadium* field
the second division UBC squad was
unable to get organized as they
went down to their second defeat
at the hands of Norquay by a
score of 6-1. UBC's only tally
came from the boot of Bill McKay
on one of the team's few organized attacks. This loss eliminated
UBC from further cup competition,
allowing some of the boys to move
up to the Varsity squad to
strengthen It in its remaining cup

red handkerchief, and pulls a folded scribbler from his hip pocket. He reads, making
a frightful muck of the four-syllable words.)

Lttttri To Thc Editor
Dear Sir:
The enclosed cutting from the
Overseas and Transatlantic Mail,
November 9-16, may interest you
apropos your  own endeavour to
collect for the War Memorial Oym.
(The clipping reads: "Bristol
University launched aa appeal
tor   630MM   to   build   two
"Churchill halls of residence"
In honour of Mr. Churchill, the
University  Chancellor.' Within
an hour £136,400 was received.-)
This apparently is how the people of Britain who are over-taxed,
underfed, and war weary to a degree, have responded to the appeal
for funds. What is wrong with
British Columbia?
The £ is worth, as far as I
know, approximately $4.10.

Mrs. McClung was commenting
on the results of a recent Parliamentary Forum when students approved a suggestion that Japanese

The noted Canadian author continued: "If the youth will stand

THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE in the Cannes, Grasse
and Nice regions of France earn their living
in the growing and processing of orange flowers,
jasmine, roses and other flowers for perfumes.
Thousands of people in Canada earn thtir living
directly or indirectly in the production of nickel.
A large part of the perfume produced in France
is exported to other lands. Less than three per
cent of the Nickel produced in Canada is consumed in Canada. The rest is exported, and the
money received helps to pay for French perfumes
and other products necessary to good living in
•Canada.H'anada cannot keep on importing from
other lanas unless Canadian goods are exported.
Each increase in the export of Canadian Nickel
means more workers employed in the Canadian
Nickel industm.. It also means jobs for the other
thousands of Canadians who produce the power,
steel, lumber, explosives, machinery and supplies used by tha Canadian Nickel industry.
By constantly expanding the use of Nickel
at home and abroad, the Canadian Nickel industry brings additional benefits to Canada and
