THE  CANADIAN
CAMPUS
A Canadian Unlveralty Frees
Feature
By
RBUVEN FRANK
CONFERENCE FEVER
Of all the hangovers that obsessed
the brain-weary atudent on New
Year'a morn, none waa aa great as
the welter of initials and abbreviations that oame out of Montreal and
Ste. Anne de Bellevue, where our two
national atudent organisations were
meeting ln biennial convention. Those
who were there have aome Idea of
what happened; but you weren't
there and I wasn't there. So, in the
Interests of humanity we try to extract the kernel of fact from the alphabetical periphery.
N.F.C.U.S.
The initials stand for National
Federation of Canadian University
Studenta. The organisation is an administrative one, and is made up of
the representatives of the atudenta'
councils all over Canada. The activities of the organisation include war
servloe work, exchange scholarships,
luter-universlty debates, Information
bureaus and many others that have
to be carried in and have to be carried on efficiently. The members are
quite correct when they claim to represent all the university students in
Canada, but the organisation is small.
Every student has a voice in the organisation through hla vote for the
faoulty representative who sits on the
student oounoil that chooses the
N.F.C.U.S. representative. Essentially
administrative, it muat be efficient.
C.S.A.
Thla aet of initials mean Oanadlan
Student Assembly. Anybody at all has
a direct voloe here. Interested groups
have representatives regardless of
size or shape, and students belonging
to no organisation at all oan still
come out to mass meetings and say
what they please. The Assembly agitates for national scholarships, deals
ln social problems, ponders the role
of the university ln national life, and
provides an open forum for the discussion of student problems. Every
point of view has a voice if it wants
one. An organization of this model
has little to do in the executive or
administrative field, does not necessarily have to be efficient, but must
be alive and representative.
C.S.F.
Now the synthesis. Although the
two organisations perform two separate and equally Indispensable sets of
functions, they have a great oommon
meeting ground ln the faot that they
both represent all the university students In Canada. The logical conclusion ls amalgamation aooording to
some plan whereby the administrative and executive functions of the
National Federation as well as the
active and representative qualities of
the Assembly must be preserved.
This will be known as the Canadian Student Federation.
The main course of action under
the amalgamation plan (adopted by
both organizations during the holidays) will be a gradual and conscious
drifting together on the various campuses and in the national executive
so that when convention-time rolls
around again, amalgamation will be
a fact needing only the election of an
executive.
Now you know!
Jam Session
PROGRAM FOR
SWING FANS
SUNDAY
University swing enthusiasts will
get their chance to see a Jam session
in progress, Sunday, January 14 at
3.30 p.m. when tlie Vanoouver "Hot"
Club holds a jazz Jamboree at the
Peter Pan Ballroom.
The Club is sponsoring a young
group of musicians known as Lester
Young and his Orchestra, who play
Jazz ln the real spirit and not in Its
commercial Idiom.
Also on the program, will be a select list of all-time swing records, featuring the best artists that the past
years have produced, the emphasis
being on old-time favorites rather
than on the newer sensations.

U.B.C. Delegates
Impressed With
Friendliness
Educational Level
Must Remain High
During* War
Eastern hospitality and the good-
natured friendly attitude of the
French-Canadian student delegates
were two outstanding features of the
C.S.A. conference, according to Ruth
Wilson, Val BJarnson, and Charlie
Nash who returned from Montreal
last week.
"One thing that struck me was the
unanimity of opinion among Canadian students that our educational
standard should be maintained
throughout the duration of the war,"
Val BJarnson, chairman of the Commission on University Extension, told
the Ubyssey.
CONSCRIPTION
While the Maritime delegation solidly backed the government in every
respect, the Frenoh Canadians were
opposed to conscription and the dispatching of a large expeditionlng
force to Europe. Ontario was divided
on this subject, while the British Columbia unit, although opposing confer iption, did not feel as strongly as
the Quebec delegation on the subjeot.
One hundred and eighty-Ave students of whom 38 were Frenoh Canadians, attended the conference which
was representative of every Canadian
university except Alberta.
Nominations For
L.S.E. Due From
Major Clubs
Nominations of candidates to the
Honorary Literary and Scientific Executive must be In the hands of the
honorary L.S.E. Board by January 18,
Darrell Braidwood L.S.E. president,
announced yesterday.
Each of the nine major clubs on
the campus may nominate two men
for candidates while the minor clubs
are limited to one each.
Twelve members for the group will
be selected from the candidates by
the 1840 L.S.E. Board which includes
Professor F. H. Soward, John Pearson, Darrell Braldwaad and Professor
W. L. McDonald.
The honorary L.S.E. ls a lifetime
society for U.B.C. students who have
done outstanding club work. Comparable to the Men's Big Block Club
In sports lt ls a more limited organization. Twelve students and two faculty members are chosen per year.
Members receive a lambskin parchment together with a gold watch fob
on which Is Imprinted the L.S.E.
crest.
Gains Success
On Third Time
Of Running
The third try ta always luoky. Jaok
Stevenson, fourth year commerce
student, proved this on Wednesday,
when a little over one-quarter of the
undergraduate body went to the polls
and-named him Treasurer of the Students' Council for the remainder of
the term.
Stevenson, who ran on a platform
of complete oo-operatlon with the
policies of the present oounoil, gained 448 of the students' votes, while
his only opponent, Fred Smith,
polled 183.
Shellah Hutchinson, who was nominated to the position, withdrew laat
Tuesday.
The new Treaaurer, stepping into
the shoes of Evan apRoberts who left
the University at Christmas, has
twice run for the position he successfully gained on Wednesday.
At present he holds a secretarial
position on the Commeroe Class executive and is manager of the Varsity
Ice Hockey team.
Polling on Wednesday was not
heavy, only 888 of the undergraduates
taking advantage of the student
franchise.

A.M.S. Finance
"Sane management" will be the
watchword of student finance for the

shortly after his success at the polls
yesterday.
"We're going to have sane manage'
nient."  said   the   new  financial  czar.
"We   can't   go   throwing   any   money

"Strict economy*, so far aa it is in
the best interests of the students,
will be observed."
Treasurer Stevenson enunciated a
cash and carry principle for A.M.i
members. "You pay your fees, and
you'll get every cent's worth before
the year ls out," he declared.
Asked if he Intended anything
along Hore-Bellsha lines, the money
king professed to have no new
schemes up his sleeve. "It would be
difficult to Introduce any innovations
now," he said. "We won't be spring
ing anything."

NEW TREASURER
The Alma Mater Sooiety has onoe again a Treasurer.
Jaok Stevenson ia to be congratulated upon winning the eleotion recently held to fill the position vacated Ijy Evan apRoberts.
Stevenson has taken considerable pains to acquaint himself
with the duties and responsibilities of the office he now holds, and
is himself a veteran from other Students' Council elections. It
will be advantageous for the Alma Mater Society to have a member
who ia not a total novice to the affairs of this Campus State.
It will not be altogether easy for Stevenson to take on the
Soaition of treaaurer in the middle of the session, but it is to be
oped that with the support and aid of the   other   members   of
Council he will not find his duties impossible.
Good luok, Jack!
TOTEM WEEK
Once again those in charge of the Totem are staging a Sales
Week. The week will form the final drive for subscriptions to the
University yearbook.
It is unnecessary for one to extoll the virtues of this year s
book, as it is comparatively well known that the Totem staff is
continuing the traditions of the paBt in surpassing all preceding
productions in size, quantity and quality.
It would be a thrill for the Editor of the Annual to achieve
the largest sales total in the history of the university, and there
aeems few reasons for his failing. The present session has been
an extraordinary one for the student body, and to have a book
which has caught for ever the spirit of the times should be the
desire of the majority of the student body.
It is a curious characteristic of this university to support
atudent enterprises in no more than a half-hearted manner. The
reasons for this behaviour are hard to diagnose, and can be no more
than suggested.
It may be that there has been a lack of education in true student government, it may be a lack of knowledge of customs in
other universities in Canada and the United States, or it may be
that the students honestly feel that productions such as the Yearbook are not worthy of support.
It is not possible to credit the latter reason with much weight
as students will turn out in vast numbers to those functions which
have definite entertainment value. (Witness the Totem pep-
meeting with maestro Kenney).
Again it surely is not the lack of knowledge of other similar
institutions. Most students have read of the successful enterprises
of 'colleges' across the line, and in the East. This campus has
never emulated the enthusiasm of other cnmpi, and possibly never
will, at least not as completely as is desirable, apparently because
it does not feel so inclined.
But 1940 must see a new spirit. This session must be a triumph
for the Totem. It sounds depressing to forecast breaks in the continuous series of annuals, but it is a definite possibility that next
session may be without a Totem.
Gottum Totem?
SHOUTING SOIENOEMEN
The flrst pep meeting of the spring term was presented yesterday at noon in the auditorium, featuring the Totem and Mart
Kenney's amazing dance orchestra. The pep-meeting was in almost every way a complete success.
But there were several matters which could hardly escape the
notice of an average observer. It is difficult to have to criticize
'spirit' or any other form of enthusiasm, yet this is the task ot
hand. ,
The students of the Faculty of Applied Science apparently
feel that their corporate voices raised in corporate yells in as
vulgarly raucous fashion as is possible are more entertaining melodies than the visiting orchestra itself.
The Sciencemen of this campus are without a doubt the average amongst engineers in Canadian universities, yet it is probable
that they can together make a greater nuisance of themselves in a
shorter space of time than any other known group of individuals.
In a pep-meeting where there should be rivalry between the
Science faculty ond another faculty, few people would mind a
•certain amount of shouting, but why need Sciencemen prevent the
organization which has presented the pep-meeting from saying a
few words in favor of the function being advertised, in this instance, for example, the Totem sales week?
The behaviour of the Science hecklers, brilliantly witty as
they may be, was typical of the generally disgraceful manners
which characterise the average university student in the eyes of
the citizens of this province.
In oddition to the fact that these loud-mouthed scholars of
science disturbed the efforts of the editor of the Totem in all that
the latter attempted to do, the yelling mass of students preferred
the discordant shrieks of their own ill-begotten throats to one of
the finest theme songs in Canada.
Once again it is not a question of musical appreciation, but
rather one of being willing, nay eager, to embarrass an orchestra
leader in front of his audience. It is hardly a commendable thing
to give Mart Kcnnev the impression thot the student body of this
university is totally uneducated in matters of good taste, or oul-
There is tho possibility, of course, that the Sciencemen netu-
nllv do not know nny better. Tt would bo depressing to hove to
make thnt admission. Perhaps the men of Science will in future
exhibit some of the intelligence of which they boast.

Crackling
of Thorns
By D.  KAHMA
NOTES ON THOMAS MANN
There Is a broad section of contemporary Oerman literature, Including Thomas Mann and Leo Fro-
benlus, whloh well deserves our attention, but receives little more than
the Mahanarayana.
I cite Mann as the school's chief-
est novelist, Frobenlus as its profound est natural philosopher. But
well within the group are a number
of lesser known Oerman aa well aa
Scandinavian writers employing
Mann'a teehnle, drawing austinenoe
from him and from the same roots
aa he, occupying aiseable portions
of his intellectual Lebensraum, and
not merely competing at Uppsala or
spending Nobel's patrimony. Olavi
Paavolalnen and some rather obscure Hungarians also inhabit
Mann's field.
I mention Frobenlus and Paavolalnen beoause their points of contact (especially the letter's) with
Mann are easily perceived. Frobenlus in particular Indicates that contemporary Oerman thought la not
entirely dependent on SpengW's
eploedial Weltverschllmmerungsch-
wan of Sturm-und-Untergang: Sibelius, despite his passion for folksongs,
ls capable of evaluating his library,
and Westermarok occasionally sets
out his conclusions without vitiating and blurring them with darwin-
Ine predispositions.
I shall not discuss Mann on stylistic grounds In these notes.
(There is no need to: the vehicle
of German expression is not dilapidated as ours. Present-day German thought has its vacuums—enervated followers of Goethe have attempted time after time to draw up
sub-Foustlan reconciliations between Ood and Man, Wordsworthian
dictates whioh Ineffectually reiterate Gott mlt una and have little
more validity than Brest-Lltovsk—
but despite these tiresome covenants,
German itself as an organ of expression has not suffered Entman-
nung at the hands of national unoul-
ture.
Mediocrity on the continent ls as
prevalent as ln Anglo-Saxondom, but
attempts to identify it with more
serviceable and durable work are
not as conscientiously and witless-
ly pursued. E.g., Flaubert and Louis
Courier a~re not regarded as literar-
ily consanginous In France. Long
training may have enabled continental populations to distinguish between the most obvious sheep and
the most obnoxious goats. Races
have broadly equivalent collective
intelligences, but despite superficial
evidence to the oontrary, intelligence and civilisation are not synonymous. And as a rule civilised peoples have better tastes in literature
than the merely intelligent. It is
only among the dull and speechless
tribes that little or no demarcation
ls drawn between literature as an
organon and reading as a distraction (uncivilised thinking makes all
but the most obvious demarcations
unattemptable, and even then the
most obvious beoome fuzzy and blurred). And only among the speechless are tbere no barriers set up to
prevent the Waughs and Walpolea
from mingling their works with the
rest of what passes for literature.
Harried by the Inarticulate tribesmen, both Pound and Eliot have had
to recluse themselves and suffer the

Well the snow and slush have arrived, a Uttle late for Christmaa perhapa, but at any rate It'a here now.
And that brings another thought
to mind. In paat yeara, with the flrat
appearance of anow on the oampua,
a number of childish individuals have
Indulged in snowball scrimmages, and
considerable damage has resulted.
Deductions have been made from
caution money to pay for the breakages. ■
Now psychologists tell us that It la
not wise to suggest evil-doing to a
child. We will suppose that the Inhabitants of this campus are adults,
but in case they have any childish
inclinations, might we implore them
not to display their Infantile Ideas
by snowballing near buildings?
One comforting thought—the snow
mightn't last long.

STUDENT EFFORTS
When we hear about the accomplishments of various student groups
or individuals, and see the fruits of
their Industry, a feeling of amasement akin to awe, overcomes us.
The Japanese Student Olub were
journalists for a day during the holidays, when they 'put out' one issue
of the New Canadian, voice of the
second generation of Japanese—and
a very fine job they made of lt.
If the spring term brings nothing
else, lt does bring two exoellent atudent productions, a Gilbert and Sullivan light opera and a Jane Austen
classic ln drama form.
And then there ls the Brook Mem
orlal Building—but more of that another time.

the object of intense study and research this week. Aspiring Thespians
are seeking a satisfying Interpretation
ot the various characters aaalgned In
the preliminary try-outs being held
thla afternoon on the stage of the

Indicative of the business-like attitude whloh Director Sidney Risk Is
adopting towards the produotlon of
the play, which has been chosen by
the Players' Club as its presentation for this spring, is his ruling that
all try-out parts muat be memorised.
There are eleven major rolea to be

Treasures Of
The Varsity
Stamp Album
By PAT KEATLEY
Looked ln a steel safs in tho offloe
of Registrar Stanley W. Mathews is
a picture whloh Is worth muoh more
than its weight In gold.
When Mr. Mathews asked me to
oome and see It, I hardly expeoted
to see him produce a leather bound
book. But that's Just what happened.
The album containing the university's offlolal stamp oolleotlon waa
opened, and there waa the ploture.
It is a stamp of Her Majesty's
Crown Colony of British Columbia,
dated 1888. Of a light smoky blue,
It depicts the Soottlsh thistle, English rose, and Irish shamrock, ranged around a large "V," the Queen's
Initial. Affixed to a letter In the pioneer days, It carried a message overland via the bustling Wells-Fargo
ooaoh route . . . for the sum of three
penoe.
Limited exclusively to stamps of
Canada and early North Amerloan
oolonles, the oolleotlon was started
In 1838 by President L. S. Klinok,
Mr. Mathews, Professor W. N. Sage,
and Henri Chodat, who was thsn
Professor of Frenoh here.
The early B.C. stamp Is the highlight of the oolleotlon. Turning over
the pages I found myself witnessing
a panorama of the history and
geography of the Dominion.
There were old faded stamps showing Queen Viotorla as a slender
pretty girl, and there were later
ones showing her sm the mistress of
an Empire at her golden Jubilee. Z
saw quaint old Issues with denominations of 13H and 17 oents, the violet blaok half-cent of 1888, and the
thruppenny vermlltlon issued in
Eastern Canada in 1881.
An entire blook of Prince Edward
Island stamps whioh Chancellor R.
E. MoKeohnle had pasted in his own
album before he reached hia teena,
are included In the oolleotlon.

Undergraduates of the Unlveralty
of Toronto oan now glvo of their life's
blood to serve their oountry at the
front without even leaving the oampus. This faot has been made possible
through the Department of Physiological Hygiene whloh la using a special means of preserving blood to be
kept indefinitely for use overseas.
It has long been known that
"shock", a oondition whioh frequently
develops as a result of severe wounds,
burns or fractures, may bo offset It
the patient has an early* blood or
serum transfusion.
However, it has been Impossible to
store blood successfully for more than
two weeks because the corpuscles disintegrate, and as a result many lives
may have been needlessly lost.
SCIENCE PRESERVES BLOOD
But now the new blood serum
should help to overoome the difficulties presented by time and distance
through the fact that lt may be kept
indefinitely without losing Its beneficial properties.
Already the Department of Physiological Hygiene has had a tremendously gratifying response on the part
of 360 donors from Medicine and
Dentistry, and already a considerable
amount of the straw-coloured, life-
saving serum ls ready to be sent to
the Old Oountry for the treatment of
casualties there.
100 DONORS NEEDED
But the aim ot the department is
to receive blood from 100 donors a
week because the need of it will become greater as time goes on and the
khaki-clad Canadians reach the battle front.
From each donor ls painlessly
drawn, ln a few mlnutea, about half
a pint of blood—an amount whose
lack Is not enough to curtail the students' aotlvities for the day, and only
half of that normally taken for
transfusions.
Onoe the blood has been drawn, tt
is allowed   to   clot   and   the serum
drawn off to be pooled with other
amounts of the same liquid In a cellophane bag four feet long and Ave
Inches wide. This tube is then hung
up, and the water allowed to evaporate in order to "dry" the serum to
one-third of Its former volume when
It la bottled and ready for shipment
overseas.
Becauae of the fact that not enough
blood la drawn from any one donor to
hurt him, lt requires five transfusions
to treat one oaae of ahock. Another
point la that the serum Is beet when
drawn two or three hours after eating becauae there ia then leas fat in
the blood atream.

WHAT
by DOUO WATT
Tommy Williams, Ex-Glamour boy
and Headline-Hero, is up to his old
trioks again it seems. For last Saturday, while Varsity dropped a cloae
decision to Vanoouver Rowing Club
(and Incidentally practically oinohed
the Miller Cup—for somebody else),
the aforementioned Mr. Williams
was carving himself a generous slioe
of limelight by taking an aotlve part
In the Meraloma's 88-0 defeat of Ex-
Britannia.
Now we oould be wrong, but didn't we read somewhere that no Varsity student eould play tn the earns
league for any team other than Varsity. It appears, however, that Mr.
Williams was not soolded; nay, further", not so muoh as a "naughty,
naughty" waa handed out to him.
Instead, he wae practically begged
to return to the Varsity fold, and is
reported to have aequieseed almost
willingly.
So, slnoe everyone elss is being so
aloe to htm, wo would Just like to
tender our own speolal compliments
and say that it is a great sporting
gesture on his part to offer to play
for his Alma Mater.
* •     •
However, on to somewhat loftier
things. We don't wish this oolumn to
develop into a panning strip, but
there is one big question troubling
us. Why isn't the English rugby
team winning? The material Is definitely there, especially In the forwards, but it isn't functioning properly. Something drastic will have to
be done soon, or very little silverware will be resting next year in the
dusty domain of King John.

From the direction of the Stadium

great promise, especially in the
Jumps.
Armstrong is the lad who soared
to a new all-Canadian High School
reoord of six feet even last year at
the Inter-High sports. Lloyd, In addition to high jumping, also turns
in a good two-twenty and clears -well
over twenty feet ln the broad Jump.
He is even reputed to have broken
the Varsity record in this latter
event.
...
Varsity's exclusion from the Senior
Amateur Ice Hockey League has not
prevented the enthusiasts on the
oampus from getting in some blade
work. Austin Frith and Jim Harmer
are cavorting In the Sunday Night
League for Standard Oil, and Ted
Stevenson for Kirk Coal, -while
Frith is also turning out for Fraser
Mills in the Senior Amateur League.
Harmer ls contemplating signing a
New 'Westminster Cub contract unless Frith can persuade htm to Join
him with the Fraser outfit. Also a
probable signee is Don Prlckett.

Oentle Joe Rita, former mentor
of the Canadian Football Squad having had nothing to do since the close

Collegiate Cagers Climb
To Within Two Points
Of Angelus Squad
Flashing their best form of the year and playing their hearts
out before a meagre crowd, Varsity's collapsible cagers sprung
back and slapped Tooke's in the eye Wednesday night at the
Campus gym, when they downed the second-place squad 41-25.
The Thunderbirds ran the Shirtmen ragged, as they cracked
the defense for twenty-four points in the last half. It was their
first appearance in a league fixture this year, and they were figured
to flop before the aharpshooting clothiers.
Fate,   however,   was   kind   to   the" „
and al
'Birds, holding up the mail
lowing Don Livingstone to play a
last, farewell game, before being de
olared ineligible, and Don played his
best game of the year.
PRINGLE AIRTIGHT
Chief reason for the Collegians big
win, though, was genial Joe Pringle,
aoe defense man, who moved from
his sone position in the second half
to throttle successfully Tooke's high
point-getter, Oeorge MoConnell.
With  Pringle  checking  at  least
two men all the time, and with the
whole team  playing  all  out,   "explosion   ball"   style,   Tooke's   were
blocked off from the Varsity hoop,
- and rarely broke through the tough
defense,   soorlng   mainly    on    set
shots.
Tbe   Shirtmen   grabbed   an   early
lead  with  MoConnell   sniping   three
clean baskets and pushing his team
Into a 18-8 margin at the flrst quarter mark.
Varsity oame baok fast after the
first breather, and led by Alexander
and Flynn ran circles around Tookes
to lead 17-14 at the half time whistle.
Alexander topped the evening's scoring with thirteen points, and was
easily the best man, offensively on
the floor.
The Shlrtmen's style of play collapsed around them ln the second
half, and with Jim Soott going hog
wild and Don Livingstone playing
his heart out in his last game of the
year, the Varsity victory was
clnohed.
NET NEWS) Even Dr. Dickson
waa pleased that Livingstone's Ineligibility letter was temporarily "held
up" . . • Don played his best game
for Maury last night . . . and the
win moved the Thunderbirda to
within two points of the third plaoe

The Varsity soooermen, crippled by

meet their sternest opposition of the

the league-leading Kerrisdale team at
Kerrisdale Park if all this white stuff
stops falling.
No fewer than four of the smart

Gold team from the sidelines. In fact

Vllet of the cagers as one of the chief
New Year'a moaners.
STILL HOPEFUL
However, Charlie, like his confrere
Maury, is not giving up hope, and
has settled down to training one or
two Intermediate players to fill the
senior ranks. There ls a strong possibility that North, bright young outside right of Ken Eldridge's team may
be asked to make the jump from Intermediate league to Senior.
One or two others are also under
consideration, and It Is probable that
the team will be slightly re-arranged,
with Doug Todd being brought up to
the firing line again, and Spence Wallace going to right half. Thla move
would bring In Shaw Mlsuharaat left

RING DEM BELLS
Wedding bells rang out last week
for Alice Chose an outstanding member of last year's baaketball team.
Bridesmaids were none other than
two of our more prominent sportswomen, Adrlenne and Rosemary Collins. Sheila Wilson, speedy left wing
on last year's hockey team also went
altarward  recently.
Last week our Senior A basketballers went down fighting In their tilt
-with I.X.L.'s. Jean Thompson supplied the soorlng punch. The girls
meet 'Westerns this week. Here's
hoping! Team: Harris, Collins, Kok-
hardt, Thompson, Bell, Phillips, Mo-
Williams, Cuthbert.
The   Senior   B's   -were   completely
chalk up another win as lt would
practically cinch their possession of
the McKechnie silverware. So the
Island contest should bring forth a
good brand of rugby and keen competition.
overwhelmed Wednesday night by
the smart I.X.L. quintette. . . . Only
practice makes perfeot!
W.A.A. prexy, Rosemary Collins,
announces two speolal Intramural
features for the new term . . . an
arohery meet for Individual and
olaas points, to be held In February,
and—hold your breath—a splash
party!
