 Mus. Soc Operetta Opens Tomorrow At 7:30
One M
Opinion
an's
by ANDY SNADDON
• CLOSING of the Owl
liquor store will have
varied effects on the citizens
of Vancouver. To the toper
it will be the loss of a good
friend, to the bootlegger it
will mark the rise of a new
prosperity and to the average citizen it will bring home
the fact that the great
forces of temperance are beginning to roll.
Not that we Intend to debate
the question of a temperate life
compared to the life of Bacchus,
we doubt if you could ever get the
two sides together on that question.
Rather we would like to suggest that the temperance people
use a different approach to the jro-
blem of intemperance than they
generally do.
BY WHAT RIGHT?
Too frequently do the "drys"
take the attitude of a stern parent
reproving an irresponsible child,
when they attempt to impress imbibers with the evils of the demon
rum. The average adult, who has
the habit of lifting a few, is inclined to wonder just where these
self-appolntd guardians # get the
idea that they have any right to
tell him what is good for him.
So the temperance advocates get
right down to work and by organization (something the "wets"
rarely have) they get laws passed
which, although well-meant, lead
to more' dangerous practices than
ever.
"BOOTLEG LIKKER"
Prohibitive measures such as
the closing of the owl stores sends
your drinking underground where
it cannot be controlled at all. Suppose a worker ls unable to get to
the stores during open hours because he is unfortunate enough to
be working a bad shift in a war
Industry. If he really wants to get
liquor he has only to visit a
bootlegger's establishment (joint
to you). Here at Dirty Joe'a (the
liquor is cut but the prices aren't)
heaven knows what he will get to
drink.
Total prohibition proved very
impractical in the United States
after the last war. Almost everyone thought it was a wonderful
idea — for the other fellow but
he himself, well sir, he guessed
he knew how to handle his liquor.
CLUMSY TACTICS
In time of war the moral crusaders claim that the removal of alcoholic beverages is essential to
national efficiency, and they strike
at a time when many men are too
busy defending their country in
remote lands to be able to voice
their anti-prohibition sentiments.
Resentment of these tactics follow.
Also, too often are temperance
people a bunch of old women with
no business of their own to mind
who make a practice of spoiling
other people's fun. And again
many of the sincere workers are
liable to become over-zealous in
their attempts to reform.
We remember some years ago
we attended a temperance meeting
for young people. The speaker, obviously well informed, had a
mountain of statistics and a lot of

Girl Reporter Risks Life To
Visit Mus. Soc. Practice
By PAT WHELAN
•   "DON'T LEAN against that prop, you'll knock the scenery down.. Gee, that's my cue! Watch out with
that hammer, you'll kill someone!"
Curled  up  in  a  corner  behind  .^_______
in
the scenes of "The Yeomen of the
Guard", I watchd a scene of fev
erish activity.
Above my head clambered a
workman who threatened to drop
a saw on my unsuspecting head.
This man, in directing the activities of the stage crew, bellowed
some unintelligible words which
sent the crew into a frenzy of
hammering  and sawing.
It was impossible to move about
in the melee. Some 40 people sat
or stood about in various poses of
relaxation or suspense, depending
upon whether they had come off
stage or were waiting to go on.
When the hubbub rose to such a
peak that it was deafening somebody uttered a sibilant "ssh" and
the  tumult subsided a little.
From behind the stage the muffled sounds which could be heard
coming from the stage did not re
semble the music of an operetta.
It seemed that the sound would
not carry to the fifth row, but
from out front it sounded very
good.
From time to time members of
the cast came in murmuring
strange comments — "Say, eh,
what's wrong with my chin? They
say that my eyebrows are not both
the same — ". It transpired that
these people had been in the mus
soc room across the way and had
been having their faces analysed
by the make-up crew.
The general feeling of excitement and enthusiasm which pervaded the atmosphere made me
realize how much the success of
the production of the "Yeomen of
the Guard" meant to all concerned, from the principals to the
members of the stage crew.

Klinck
Commends
War Work
• A HEARTY COMMENDATION
of the work that the University of British Columbia is doing in
the war was made by Dr. L. S.
Klinck at the I.S.S. supper Friday
night.
"The Minister of Labour," said
Dr. Klinck, "has said that since
the training centres In Britain have
largely been eliminated it is vitally necessary that other centres
in the Empire be established."
Red Cross, Radio technicians C.
O.T.C. and women efforts all came
in for a word of thanks from the
president. Since the war started
393 members of the C.O.T.C. have
gone to the fighting forces. 41
enlisted In the navy, 155 In the
army and 197 in the air force.
"The government has made it
known," concluded Dr. Klinck that
students of the universities can
best serve their country by training themselves for war industries
or armed forces.
Japanese Club
Raises Money
For War Fund
War Aid Fund will be increased by $50 as a result of a Valentine
Dance held February 14 by the
Japanese Students' Club in Brock
Hall. It was attended by more than
100 couples.
"By endeavours such as these,
the Japanese Students' Club hopes
to be able to prove its loyalty to
the war effort," said Hajjlme Kag.

'F Men Get
Summer War
Work Offer
• CATEGORY "E" men at
university have been offered a chance to do war
work during the summer by
the government, it was learned this week.
All of the 160 students falling
within this category have received
letters from Dean Buchanan, on
behalf of the government, offering
them "inspection of airplane parts"
as employment, to quote the letters received by the students.
Qualifications for the job will
consist of four week's training, but
the time and place have not been
announced as yet. Wages for the
work will start at 60c an hour
with chance of advancement to
$200 a month, the "E" applicants
were told by the Dean's office.
Further details are expected soon
by the 130 men who have already
applied  for the employment.
New Council
Attend Session
e THE NEWLY-ELECTED council, including three sciencemen,
two Artsmen, three Aggies, and
one Commerce, will sit Tuesday,
Feb. 24, for the first time. They
will be initiated into the routine
of procedure by old council members, gaining experience for future use.
Ted McBride, 1941-42 president,
states: "The new council will come
to all the meetings from now to
the end of the term, with the present council, observing the latter
and their methods."
Successful
Conference
At Seattle
• U.B.C.'s GOODWILL delegation
from the International Relations Club which travelled to the
University of Washington last
week-end returned Sunday full of
enthusiasm for the American centre of learning.
Professor F. H. Soward, who was
one of the three leading Carnegie
Endowment speakers who addressed the 100 students on "Canada's
Place in World Affairs" expressed
admiration of the royal way in
which Canadian delegates were
treated and the interest shown in
our war economy.
Sheila MacKay, who presented
the case for China found that student interest in world affairs seemed to be more universal than on
our campus, partly on account of
the department of political science
which fosters such Interest.
Helen Manning, in her paper on
the British Empire, cleared up
many obscure points as to thc
Commonwealth, although obvious
mis-statements which she inserted
to catch them slipped by unnoticed. "I could have told them we
paid tribute in skins to Great Britain and they might have believed
it" she  indicated.
Delegate Jack McMillan said:
"Canada in the Pan-American
Union" was my topic and they
felt that, as suggested, it was our
responsibility to join the league
of the American republics for a
more unified democratic front in
the western hemisphere. "Canada
must help us unite the two Americas" was their unanimous opinion.

Air Raid
Rehearsal
Success
t IN SPITE of a general holiday
attitude, and confusion as to
what waa expected of them, students made a satisfactory job out
of Friday's air raid practice.
When the siren on the fire hall
boomed out at eleven o'clock moat
students had only « vague idea
of what was up. By playing follow,
the-leader they went whew they
were supposed to. The official
time for the clearing of the campus buildings was six minutes, and
those in charge expressed themselves as being satisfied with the
result.
Although the general idea was
for the students to take cover in
the bushes and woods surrounding the campus for the half hour
duration of the alarm, the majority preferred to stand around the
fringes of the woods and watch
the proceedings.
Long before the all-clear sounded people had begun to filter back
to the buildings. Rumour has it that
many couples did not return for
some hours after the sirens had
sounded 'all-clear."
Constable William Orchard, air
raid warden for the district, was
well satisfied with the results. Ha
found the time to be good and
felt that if planes ever did come
over, the difficulty of getting the
students to take cover would take
care of itself. The value of the rehearsal according to Constable Orchard was in giving the campus
an idea of what to do should anything happen.
One Artsman who has a way
with numbered cubes, won $1.90
in a fast game of "African Golf'
held in the woods during the half
hour.
PUB MEETING
Special Pub meeting- Wednesday
12:30 at which every member of the
Publications Board must attend.
'There's Nothing Toflt' _
♦ ♦ ♦ Reporter Blood Donor
•   THE RED CROSS has now started calling on U.B.C.
students for the much-needed blood which they signed
before Christmas.
Chuck Claridge, Ubyssey sports reporter, is one of
those who have already gone through the "ordeal", and as
Chuck himself exclaims "There's really nothing to it!"
"You go into this room with a -^^^^^>i^«bm««_Bk_^_^h
bunch of guys sitting around.
Some cute little thing comes in
and takes your temperature. Another one comes in and asks you
if you want some tea or coffee.
Then they call you into another
room, ask your "K" number out
here. A nurse comes in and takes
a sample of your blood and asks
you a lot of questions.
"Then you go sit down again
until they come out, point at you
and say, "You're next."
"They take you in and lay you
on a table and drain it out. That's
really all there is to it.
"After you are through, you go
and have coffee and cookies."
Chuck also mentioned the number of Varsity students and professors that were there the same
night. Professor Currie, Dr. Ranta,
and Mr. Mathias were all out to
give their blood for the good cause,
and the general consensus of opinion was expressed in the simple
words: "There's really nothing to
it." Page Two-

The Changing Order
In an editorial commenting on the recent Student Council elections last Friday
inference was made that Rod Morris, newly-
elected A.M.S. president, was the leader of
a "political machine" functioning on the
campus. Although we maintain our strong
stand against any such organization in whatever section it may be created, information
has come to hand establishing the fact that
Rod Morris was not connected with this
group as we charged, and we hereby apologize for any statements that were made
which might jeopardize his position as future
head of the student body.
The fact that a group worked towards
fixing the elections remains, (despite the
protestations of some students that it was
not a "machine"); but now that the voting
is over, and we have elected a new council
in which every faculty is represented, we
should drop the matter and turn our efforts
towards completing a successful year and
preparing the way for the one which the
new council must govern.
}* This year we have made amazing pro
gress over last in our War Effort. Students
have responded with enthusiasm to the plans
laid by the War Aid Council for raising
money, with the result that by April our
total will far exceed the $5200 contribution
we gave the Red Cross last year. But if we
think that it has been tough and we have
had to scrimp this term, we must prepare
for even more sacrifices in the year to come.
With every passing day our attendance
at university becomes more and more a privilege—more and more a reason why we must
support every effort our elected or appointed representatives devise towards winning
the war.
Next year the new president plans to
organize all faculties along the lines Science
is organized at present. Unfortunately, some
sciencemen have conceived the idea that the
Ubyssey is down on them. This is a false
impression; the only reason they were singled out was because the alleged "machine"
originated in that faculty—any other group
would have come in for the same criticism
had such appeared. Their enthusiasm is to
be commended, and if the new president can
instill some of their spirit into the other
faculties he will have executed an excellent
piece of work.
This he plans to do, and in so doing
he rightly figures the war effqrt will be
boosted tremendously. If next year we can
have organized faculties competing against
' each other in money-raising enterprises (we
saw a smattering of it in the "Mile of Pennies" Campaign) U.B.C.'s war program will
be multiplied many times over.
The Mummery     *>«*«
•   WELL, this little babe, the club secretary, ups to me in the quad and says,
demure and sweet like:
"Would you care to come to our meeting
tonight?"
"Why, I'd love to, honey!" cry I,' flashing my gums winningly, and jiggling my
Adam's Apple in a seductive manner.
But her face suddenly becomes all twisted, and her eyes look ugly.
"Then you wouldn't mind bringing a
couple of dozen sandwiches, would you?"
she coos toying with a mean-looking nail-
file.
"Awk," I croak, stunned by the suddenness of the attack.
She starts to walk away, then comes
back, making one or two practice lunges
with the nail-file.
"We've heard about your sandwiches,"
she warns, in a low voice. "Better put some
butter in them tonight, hmmm?"
Nodding significantly, she saunters of!
again, going up to another guy, sweet and
demure like. He shows up later with the
cake.
So here I am, about eight p.m., with my
sandwiches under my arm, meandering
vaguely in search of the house designated
for the meeting. As always, it is situated on
one of those Shaughnessy crescents, Vancouver's answer to town planning. The
houses in this district are too proud to admit
that they have, like common criminals, been
assigned numbers, and, withdrawing a dignified distance from the street, squat down
darkly behind a screen of high hedges and
huge hounds.
Befuddled, I accost an old girl on the
sidewalk.
"Pardon me, but would you ..."
"I never give money to panhandlers,"
barks the old crone.
"Now, look here," I return hotly. "This
overcoat cost twenty bucks F.O.B. Bernstein! Brothers. Feel that material!"
"Don't you dare remove your coat!"
caws this ancient crow, gripping her umbrella, "or I shall call for help."
Hurrying away from this lovable optimist, I am fashionably late when I finally
peer in the right window, knock on the
right door, and am given entrance.
My sandwiches and I are greeted, in
that order, by the same fierce-looking secretary. I start to take off my coat, but she
holds up her hand.
"Count these sandwiches, Mary!" she
orders, tossing them to an aide, her glittering eyes watching my face for panic.
There is an awkward silence until Mary
returns to say:
"Twenty-four,  Ham."
"Butter?"
"Butter."
"O.K., bud," says the secretary, turning
back to me, "you can hang up your coat
now."
Left alone, I tiptoe up the hall, looking
for the drawing room. I open the door on
the left. I shut the door on the left, hoping
that nobody hoard her yell.
Opening another door gingerly, I stick
my head inside, to be immediately drowned
in a sea of faces. I drag the rest of me into
the room, flinching under the barrage of
multiple, double-barrelled stares, which
seem to be isolating me as an argument for
putting smaller mesh on the screen door.
I go, with all the grace and poise of a
startled jackrabbit, to a nearby piano stool,
which promptly squeals its disgust, bringing
a damningly slight cough from the interrupted speaker.
An hour later, the speaker has not
even reached his apology for speaking so
long, and a slow paralysis is creeping out
in all directions from my sitting position.
The ghastly thought that I shall never
walk upright again, that I shall always have
to walk around sitting down, drives me to
lean back on the piano, my elbow thereby
churning into the base keys, which groan
deeply in a magnificently lost chord. The
hot, angry faces swivel onto me again."
"Put my elbow on the keys, ha, ha," I
laugh weakly. "Put my elbow on the keys.
Sorry, ha, ha."
At this point, a small, bleary-eyed, inversely bald dog ambles into the room, sidles
up to me, and starts snuffing my pant cuffs
in an obnoxious manner. I feel everyone,
including the speaker, watching me out of
the corner of his eye, to see whether I will
have guts enough to kick the little beast in
the teeth, or will bow to convention and
snuffing.
Luckily, a voice calls "Here, Prince!"
and his very high highness waddles out,
smug with the knowledge that my pant cuffs
have nothing to offer anyhow. Testifying
my brief acquaintance with the decrepit
dauphin, however, is an active souvenir on
the calf of my leg, which I would give the
other leg to be able to scratch.
At last, the speaker sits down, and I
creak up in sheer ecstasy of the perpendicular, only to creak down again as a pimply-
faced individual babbles the expression of
the gratitude of us all. When he has collapsed, I rise again.
"Are there questions you would like to
ask?"
I sink down again, steam coming out of
my ears.
Finally they bring in the trough, and I
fight to get one of my own sandwiches. Of
course, the ham slides out when I bite it,
and has to be drop-kicked behind the potted
ferns. The chocolate cake breaks in midair, plopping into the coffee, and I am still
dredging for it when it is time to go home.
Someone offers me a ride, but when I
get into his car, a great horde of people
swarms in on top of me and when the mass
settles, I have about 300 pounds of female
undergraduate swaying on the one good
muscle in my leg.
"I'm not hurting you, am I?" she
burbles.
"Oh, no," I laugh harshly. "I always
scream like this when I ride in cars. My
mother was frightened by a 1919 Cadillac."
"That was before my time, I guess," she
drools.
"Yes," I snarl, "you have your parking
lights on your fenders. I can feel them."

MONTREAL, QUE. — Students
at McGill are wondering whether
the enrolment next year will be
adequate to ensure the continuation of essential campus activities.

States Army and Navy men understand Japanese.
MONTREAL, QUE. - U.B.C. Is
grand, according to Dora Millar,
exchange student from McGill who

LETTERS TO
THE EDITOR
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
I have just read the Editorial
"Election Echoes" in Friday's Ubyssey, and I must say I am glad
to see that tills matter has been
brought before the students. This
expose, however, does not, i think,
go far enough. I think every student on this campus should know
what has been going on, so here
are the facts as I have heard them
from reliable sources.
Agriculture had no candidate for
President or Treasurer, but they
did have one for Junior Member.
It was arrangd that Agriculture
would vote Science for President
and Treasurer, and Science would
vote Aggie for Junior Member.
There was a hitch in the proceedings, though, when a Science-
man was nominated for Junior
Member. It is rumoured that our
President-elect tried to talk him
into withdrawing, but, being the
man he is, having thrown his hat
into the ring, he left it in. I voted
against him myself, but had I
known then what I know now, I
would most certainly have been
his most ardent supporter and
campaigner.
Was there the S..M.U.S. meeting
usually held when a Scienceman
is running for office? Was there
the usual "Come on fellows, let's
get out and, vote Science?" Did
the class presidents work on their
classmates to vote Science? No!
Instead there was silence on the
part of the executivs and sly propaganda in the draughting rooms—
and we talk about the Japs stabbing in the back!
A  Disgusted  Scienceman.
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
About twice a year the Ubyssey
gets fed up with receiving criticisms from "Vox Pop," "Stu Dent,"
"Pu Pil," "Pro Bono Publico" an 1
other weaker halves of mysterious
dual personalities. Some member
of the staff usually responds with
a peppery little paragraph which
states that the Ubyssey will not
publish any unsigned material and
which infers that the author of
such material is a very yellow
person of questionable ancestry.
That's all very fine. Would you
then consider the readers of the
Ubyssey equally justified in wish,
ing similar thoughts on the puny
little "ink-throwers who hide behind the heading "From the Editor's Pen." (I think all your
readers have placed the apostrophe after the "s" in their own
mind'--).
It will be obvious to you by
now that my peeve against your
column has become increasingly
excited by "Pertinent Questions"
on Feb. 6 and by "Election Echoes"
on Feb. 20. The former challenges
Morris's election promises by stating that it is too late to change the
representation on council for th»
next year and that the council
minutes would take too much
space in thc Ubyssey.
The latter column "Election
Echoes" criticizes his well con
cealcd political machine. Here is
the answer to that. This year there
were four men in the Applied
Science Faculty who had shown
ability In student government and
who had had experience on their
own undergraduate associations
the S.M.U.S. and the U.E.S. Probably over 90% of the faculty feel
that any of these four could be
of service to the A. M. S. and were
willing to back them through an
election. The four were Mack
Buck, Rod Morris, Arvid Back-
man, and Alvin Narod.
Science backed Paul Buck who
has served his faculty well and
who has shown an abundance of
spirit and leadership. As soon as
it is revealed that we backed experience over faculty, someone
with a mind warped to sensational
underhand doings will sense something wrong and cry "Politics."
As for "well-concealed" machine,
we offer this Incident. Previous to
one of the Applied Science lectures
one of the S.M.U.S. executive (not
Morris) campaigned for Buck before the entire class including
several members of the same fraternity as the science candidate
for Junior Member.
Now that the majority of students feels that Morris and his
campaign for faculty representation should be upheld, how about
cutting out the dirty, lying, sneaking propaganda that some of the
"editors" are allowed to write anci
give him some support in his term
in office. Otherwise maybe you
could put your column on the
other side of the page. There
would then be four columns appearing in fron^ of your .self-appointed Mr. Kurusu's.
At   least   you   might   be   polite
.eVCliry sped far above fatigues
With Picobac to charm his endless leagues.
• Students also must cover much ground —
academic if not terrestrial. In their arduous
journeys through the realms of learning, they
find tnat Picobac gives them "winged feet of
thought". For the pick of Canada's Burley
crop is always a mild, cool, sweet smoke — a
vaae mecum incomparably satisfying and financially undemanding.

• GIRLS   ARE   always   talking
about either of  two things —
clothes or men. There were a
bunch of Varsity girls sitting in
front of me the other day in a
lecture gabbing about the snappy
casuals and dressy pumps that
Rae-son's, 1608 Granville St., have
on the Clever floor. A tall dark
Gamma Phi was on the bus when
the Air Raid Test Siren went so
the driver pulled up to the curb
and opened the door and told her
to get out and head for the bushes.
She didn't know anything about
it and refused to get out saying
"Say, what are you celebrating,
anyhow?" Those Rae-son's shoes
are really. youthful looking, swell
for college kids and only 13.95.
• THAT SWISS EFFECT is really
classy looking, especially when
it comes to ladles' hats. George
Straith's Ltd., 905 Georgia St.,
have some snappy Tyrolean style
felts in all shades to go with your
spring outfit A cute little fresh-
ette was entertaining her boy
friend, and was supposed to see
that he got .home early so he'd be
in condition for his medical exam
the next morning. The next day
his boy-friend accosted her and
asked why he didn't get home till
two a.m. She replied that he'd
left her place at nine p.m. Now
she's wondering what he did after
he left her place. Straith's won't
be getting any more of those Liberty silk scarves, so if you want
to stock up get them now.
• IF THERE'S anything that takes
the glamour away from a girl
more than a slip that shows I'd
like to know what It is. That's why
so many of the girls are going for
those elastic-back slips, Josie tells
me. B. M. Clarke's, 2517 Granville
St., have a new supply of them
(they're called Sulette slips) in
tea and white at S2.00 In sizes from
32 to 38. The president of an acting club on the campus honored
1he vice-president on his birthday with a great big kiss. Clarke's
have a full range of silk stockings in all weights from 89c to $1.35
in Supersllk and Gresham makes. '
A curly-haired Phi Kap PI gave
his pin away the other night. He's
a basketball player.
• SPORTS SUITS are really bril-
llant this year. Wear a plaid
jacket with a plain skirt or a plain
jacket with a plaid skirt. The Rose
Marie Dress Shop has some very
smart ones in various colors. Drop
in and see them at 2186 West 41st
Ave. A blonde Kappa was left In
the lurch by her friends at 11:30
Saturday night in a popular drink-
erie. She was commissioned to order 18 of the frothy fluids about
11:20. Closing time came and her
friends hadn't appeared, and she
war, ejected after she had finished
15 of them. My co-writer on Friday sure messes things up sometimes — her last item last week
w?s all crazy . . . everyone concerned are tho best of friends and
always have been.
Primrose Plays
To Full House
• WILLIAM PRIMROSE, in appearance more like a successful
young executive or a smart British
officer, came to the campus yesterday noon and demonstrated to a
student audience that filled the
Auditorium just why he is instead acclaimed as "the world's
greatest viola player."
Accompanist for the pass feature
was Vancouver's adopted son,
Arthur Benjamin.
Presenting short selections by
Wagner and Tartlni, and longer
works by Brahms and Nardlnl,
Primrose won enthusiastic response
from an unusually attentive student gathering.
The event was arranged by the
Special Events Committee.

Fear of missing out on this gala

Post War Ideal Should Be
Community Above People
. ♦ ♦ Rader
•   "WE MUST counter the Fascist New Order with a New
Order of our own—one that is more soundly and justly
conceived.  To counter it our ideal must be the democratic
community and not the democratic individual."
This was the keynote of Dr. Melvin Rader's address
to a packed Arts 100 last Friday noon opening the one-day
I.S.S. Conference on "The Nature of the Present War."
Keeping  tO the  fore   this  ideal  Of m~—~mmmmmmmmm—mm—m—m—
a post-wir world soundly united
for the good of all peoples, Rader
traced the Origins of the Fascist
movement and of World War H
and applied the lessons learned to
a plan for a better post war world.
Tracing those origins back all
through the past two centuries,
the visitor from the University of
Washington stressed the important
role of economic disruption caused
by man's inability to match his
social advances to his scientific
progress. He also pointed out the
militaristic aspect of Fascism and
showed how disunity and appeasement among the Democratic powers had led up to the present conflict.
(He went on to note that the
totalitarian values of loyalty, planning, unity, and power are "distortions of our own basic ideals."
But we must carry out our ideals, he declared to a better purpose.
"We* must have an organizing
centre of our own. To me it is
the democratic community. To be
genuine it must mean that we advance to a social and economic
policy of welfare, greater community ownership of wealth and
productive factors."
"But we must not have goodwill without power. We need
strong states that are people states
democratic through and through."
"For future years," he went on
In answer to a question, "I favour
some sort of international police
force. We must forget unlimited
national sovereignty. Because we
failed once with a League of Nations, it does not mean that the
task is impossible."
Rader emphasized that we must
remember these principles in our
conduct of the war, both in the
struggle's objectives and methods.
"Private Interests must be sternly
suppressed before public interests.
And we should work to secure the
support of the subjugated peoples,
including the races of the Axis
itself."
Only if we carry on in this manner, both during and after the
war, can we "win the war well"
and not lose the peace as we did
in the 1920's.
ONE MAN'S OPINION—
(Continued from Page 1)
equipment to illustrate the effect*
of alcohol on the human body.
"ONE BOTTLE OF BEER"
She was doing very well, the
majority of her listeners were evl.
dently impressed by her talk. Then
her enthusiasm got the better of
her. She began to wave a beer
bottle around and to inform tho
audience that a man was drunk
after a bottle of beer, that his
vision was badly out of focus and
in general the poor fool was horribly intxicated. She kept this line
up for some time "just one bottle
of beer, mind you." Soon all her
points were lost and all that the
audience was interested In was
discovering the brand of beer she
was talking about.
Frankly we think that temperance, at least moderation, is probably the right idea. But if temperance workers ever want to get
anywhere they had better work
on the education angle harder, and
quit trying to force abstinence on
people whose minds are already
made up in favor of drinking.

Frosh Cage Squad Only Hope Of Varsity Team
Frosh Tangle With
Sparlings Tonite
In King Ed. Gym
•   THE FROSH CAGERS will engage Sparling again tonight at the King Edward gym at Twelfth and Oak to
play the third game of a best of five series now tied up at
one game apiece.
The Frosh took the first contest in a thrilling battle
last Tuesday night by a narrow 31-27 count but slipped a bit
on Thursday night and dropped a 36-26 battle.
The playoff Is for the Intermediate A Community League
Championship. In the semi-finals
of this division Varsity downed
the Y quntet In three games and
gained the right to meet the Lague
winners, Sparlings.
Playoff time will be at 7:30 the
game coming as a preliminary to
the second Shore-Stacy tussle.
The Frosh have had a good record this season, the only campus
basketball squad to do so. Out of
10 games played during the season
the students turned in 7 victories
against 3 defeats to wind up in
second place in the league standings.
The team will be lead by Don
Mann, Dave Hayward and Bruce
Yorke who were prominent in Saturday's Senior A game against tho
Victoria K. V.'s. These three men
have been the mainstay of the
quintet this season and should be
in top form for tonight's battle.
Their coach, Art jonnson deserves some of the credit for the
team's sucess, managing to squeeze
in their practise sessions as well
as his own of the Senior A's.
The team needs some good side,
line support for these next two
games, and as there is only a
small admision charge a good student crowd is expected to cheet
*be boys on to vlctoory.

Soccermen Play
Pro-Recs Wed.
• THE VARSITY Roundballers will tangle with the bottom place Pro Rec soccer squad on Wednesday afternoon
at Cambie Street Grounds. It Is expected that the game will
be a "sure thing" for Varsity, although the team is weakened
by the loss of Stu Roach. As yet, the Pro Recs have been
unable to make a stand against any of] the four teams in the
league.
Fred Sasaki
Fred Sasaki will be the key man
for U.B.C. This flashy player has
been turning in excellent performances all season, but he will
have to outdo himself on Wednesday, for the Blue and Gold eleven
has lost one of their best players
in Stu Roach. But there seems to
be no doubt in soccer circles that
Fred will be able to spark the
team. '
NEW LIME
The forward line will be sparked
by Norm Tupper, Fred Sasaki and
Quan Louie, who was playing half
back. This powerful line is out to
smash all Pro Rec resistance. Varsity defense is unchanged and as
tight as ever.
In spite of recent losses of men,
and shake ups in the team, the
boys are confident that they can
turn In a good game. With the
alight opposition they will face
next Wednesday, there ls very
little doubt as to the result. Varsity should run the Pro Recs Into
the ground, and emerge from the
struggle with a win.
The Police eleven, U. B. C.'s
strongest opponent as yet, will
tackle the Wodsonias on Wednesday afternoon also. It is conceded
that they will take this team for
a loss. This will leave the teams
in the same line up in league
standing, with the Cops on top,
Varsity second, Woodsonias third,
and Pro Recs last.

•   "THINGS ARE starting
to hum," stated Jimmy
Allen, Vice-President of the
Varsity Golf Club yesterday.
"We expect to have several
matches in the near future besides
a trip south to Bellingham Normal."
Letters of invitation have already been sent to the Universities of Oregon and Washington
for matches with these colleges,
and hope is high among golf en-
thisiasts on the campus that a
possible journey to Seattle will
result.
Word has been received from
Bellingham Normal that they will
play here on the University links
in about two weeks time, against
a six man Blue and Gold squad.
A return match has also been
arranged with the Bellingham
men and the Varsity team will
travel south to play in the re-
venge battle, which will take placo
sometime around the first of April.
A prospective lineup of the University team to play Is as follows;
Jimmy Allen, Ormle Hall, who will
have mended a broken collar bone
by then according to the doc., Hans
Swlnton, Kenny McBride, Bob

• WITH THE BEAUTIFUL, warm spring weather coming
on, the Greek Softballers are getting prepped up for the
baseball schedule. The series starts early in March in the
form of a double knock-out as was used in Ping Pong, and
Golf. If any teams haven't started practising it's darn well
about time—the standard of ball is going to be very good if
the Beta—Phi Kappa Pi practice shows anything.
Although the Senior "A" Basketball team didn't accomplish anything in the way of playing, they at least turned
out some good coaches for the intra-murals. Sandy Hay,
Art Johnston, 'Lefty' Barton, Jo Ryan, and Lynn Sully made
good jabs of coaching the Fiji's, Beta's, Kappa Sigs, Phi Delts
and the Phi Kappa Pi's respectively.
Now that the Cross Country has been run off, it seems
fairly obvious that this is the greatest year for Intra-mural
Sports that this University has ever seen—in spite of what
Al Narod stated in his election platform.
Here are the official standings for the Cross Country
Race:

The Interfrat golfers are slipping behind in their schedule, and if. they don't hurry up they just won't finish. Since
the last issue of this notable rag not one game has been reported to Chief Maury's office. »
Last Friday noon the Zeta Psi cagers defeated the
Fiji aggregation 10-9. The leaders in this terrifically high-
scoring game was Abbott with 6 points for the Zete's and

• UNDER THE brilliant master minding of acting coach
"Shadow" Shadwell the Varsity Thunderbirds climaxed
a poor season with a 30-24 victory over the Victoria K.V.'s,
reputedly a Senior A Squad, on Saturday night at the V.A.C.
Gym.
Varsity used several men from
the Frosh quintet in the preliminary to the Shore-Stacy tussle.
Bruce Yorke, Dave Hayward, Don
Mann and Bud McLeod played in
the Seniors who were without the
services of Art Barton and Joe
Ryan.
Varsity started off fast and
broke into an early 14-4 lead before the K. V.'s came to life to
bring the count up to 16 to 10 at
the halfway mark.
FROSH PLAY
After the breather Shadow sent
In the Frosh, who arc prospects
for next years Senior A squad, and
they played a good game giving a
commendable account of themselves. Bruce Yorke, who started
off with the Seniors this season,
and Dave Hayward were the best
of the newcomers as they scored
8 points between them.
Victoria K. V.'s are the chief
'opposition to the Dominoes, if
there could be any such thing in

McKechnie Ruggers
Play Vancouver
Reps. Here Saturday
• FORTIFIED BV enthusiasm and daily workouts, but
weak from loss of men, the Thunderbird rugger crew will
face the Vancouver Rep team Saturday afternoon here at
3:30. The team need to win their next two games to get a
playoff berth with Vancouver and Victoria Reps.
mm\ D HALL HURT
I he Kelson ■ ■     The iatest bi°w c&mB to ft*
crew on Saturday when it was
learned that Ormie Hall, brilliant
three line player will play no
more rugger this year because of
a broken collar bone sustained in
an Ex-Byng Millar Cup tilt.
Others who are out with injuries are Gordy Southerland, the
snappy receiving half whose place
will be filled by Tommy Nlshio,
and Evann Davies, who is implacable in the scrum.
The team had one of its best
' practices the other day when
Maury Van Vliet donned strip and
showed the boys a few brokea
field tactics from Gordy Souther-
land's vacated receiving half spot.
The most serious vacancy on the
lineup is the fullback spot left by
rangy George Rush, who had te
quit the team because of Army
trouble. However Chuck Cotteral
states that the team is in its best
shape this year under the strong
eyes of Maury Van Vliet, and believes that a win is not altogether
out of the question.
In Saturday's Ex-Byng-ExBrtt-
annla game all the scorers tor the
Ex-Byng squad, who chalked up
28 markers were Vanity men borrowed for Ihe event, they were
Jack Tuckerwlth four toys, Boyd
Crosby and Ian Richards with one
each, so that Vanity's scoring
threat will be out In force to battle
the Reps* who are composed largo,
ly of Ex»Bynf players.
In the: same tilt Ormy Hall accounted: for four points before
having his collar bone fractured
and Nlshio got the other two Ex-
Byng tries.

Varsity Night Set
Definitely Friday
• AT A LATE HOUR last night, Harry Home issued the
following statement. "The long delayed Hockey Night
at the Forum has definitely been set for this coming Friday."
Although the I.S.S. week drive is officially over, there will
be the admittance charge of fice cents, the total proceeds to
go to the I.S.S. fund. The plans for the evening are unchanged from those announced in lastiMonday's Ubyssey.
At 8:00 the Varsity Hockey team       ^	
will take on the Vancouver Junior
Lions to prove their superiority.
At 9:30 when the game is over, tho
ice will be turned over to those
who wish to skate. This is one of
the few opportunities that the students will have of seeing a winning Varsity team in action, and
at the same time, enjoy skating
for only a nickel.
"The team is fresh from their
win over the Boeing six the other
day. Exuding confidence, they will
take to the ice to show the Sons
of the Lions just what kind of
material the University is capable
of turning out." This assertion was
made by Jack Carlisle, manager
of the team.
It is to be expected that Billy
Husband and Dick Saunders, the
two Vernon boys will spark the
team, ably supported by such old
"reliables" as Harry Home, John
Moxon, Ted Stevenson, and Jim
Goodman. Coach Johnny Owens
has guided the team to their present fine condition, and much of
their success is due directly to
him.
Those turning out will also be
soothed by the sweet music of the
Varsity Band, which will play during the game, and during the skating sessions. Harry Home, speaking for the whole team said that
girls who would come on Friday,
would be ably taken care of by
the Varsity hockey team.

play on the Vernon Hydrophoam
