Club Discusses
UN Democracies
A new club, called the Democratic
Forum, will be formed on the campus
as soon as approval is granted by
Student Council.
The Forum, organized by law students. Stuart Porteous and William
Street, aims at studying and discussing the present British, Canadian
apd American institutions of government.
An important feature of the club as
set out in its constitution will be that
no member shall discuss, expend or
put forth any philosophies, teachings,
ideas or theories, good or bad, that
are not in conformity with the aims
of the Forum.
Porteous stressed the fact that the
club will not be affiliated with any
political party.
Membership will be open to everybody, - d guest speakers will be invited to address the meetings.

Phi Kappa Sigma, Phi Delta Theta,
Tau Omega fraternities and Delta
Sigma Pi, honorary sorority are now
the only fraternities that have not
had their Totem pictures checked.
Today and tomorrow are the only
days left to correct any errors that
might be in the lists.
"This Totem staff will not be responsible for any mistakes in unchecked lists," states Jean MacFar-

Childhood ambition of second year Arts and Science
student Elaine Delisle to be a flying nurse was completed in
part by the .19 year old coed at University of British Columbia
when she won her private pilot's license at Chilliwack Flying
Club, January 3.
"I have always wanted to fly," said
Elaine, "I do not think that flying is
any more dangerous than driving a
car. In fact," she shrugged her shoulders, "it's safer. I have never worn
a parachute."
Elaine De'iisle started lessons last
July and flew whenever she could.
"The weather wasn't very good," said
the brown-eyed brunette, "and because one of the three planes cracked
up, wo had to fight to get a plane."
Her license entitles her to fly alone,
but her next aerial ambition is to log
enough hours to let her carry pas-
scngers She won her license after
ll.»2 hours solo in Tiger Moths, Cub
and Fleet, Canuck planes. Her nrst
solo flight came after nine hours
dual in the air,
Elaine is on the girls' intermediate
basketball te.un and belongs to the
swimming club, Her studies have not
.suffered; she attained'.second class
honors in Christmas examinations,
Afte.r this session at UBC Elaine will
enter General Hospital for four years'
practical   work.     She   hopes   to   earn
her public health certificate there.
Elaine is the first woman to get her
pilot's licence at the Chilliwack'Flying Club where she and her father are
both members, Mr. Leo Delisle is
still in training for his license. Dad
weather has cut down flying 'because
the field used for take-offs and landings does not have a paved tarmac.

UBC Debaters
Meet Yank Team
Three debaters representing tne
University of British Columbia Parliamentary Forum travel to California next week to meet groups from
two American schools in panel discussions.
Dave Williams, Forum president,
Ron Grant, and Ken Wardroper are
going to Palo Alto, where on January
29 they will participate in a discussion with Stanford University on the
topic "that the control of industry
should be shared with labor to increase production and better the general economic situation."
Following the Stanford meeting
they will journey to the University
of California at Berkely where they
will take part in a round-table talk
on "whether or not United States control of Japan should be vested in the
Security Council of the United Nations."
A California team will travel north
to Vancouver sometime in February
to return the visit of the UBC men
it was announced by Williams yesterday. When asked to comment on the
possibility of more California, UBC
meets, he said, "The situation is indeed favorable. We are hopeful that
this will be the beginning of a tradition."
Legion Decides Against
Pressing DVA Grant Case
A decision against embarking on another public campaign
for increased DVA'grants was ratified at a general meeting of
the local branch 72, of the Canadian Legion, held Wednesday,

Dr. J. S. Kitching, Health Service
duector, urges all students to take
advantage of this examination. Mem-
bers.of the faculty and staff are also
encouraged to take this opportunity.
Financed through the sale of
Christmas seals there is no charge

Persons desiring an appointment
should call at the Health Service office as soon as possible.
Faculty members are asked to make
announcements regarding the X-Rays
to their classes.
The Ubyssey Sharpens Up, Even More
When UBC students returned to the campus in January, 1941, they
found that their favorite campus newspaper had gone through a typographical revolution. All the stories started off with grandiose black dots
and capitol letters, the type-faces were different, and column rules,—the
thin lines between each column of type—had been done away with.
That razzle-dazzle, snake-hips, make-up was abandoned bit by bit,
until now, after six years of experimentation, The Ubyssey is back In
traditional newspaper dress. The last step was taken with today's Issue—
the revival of column rules.

Faculty Canvass
To Aid Gym Fund
Faculty members will be canvassed
in  aid of the Memorial  Gym Drive.
The canvass will be conducted by
Arthur Sager, the university's public
relations officer, Mr. Sager has been a
member of the War Memorial Gymnasium Committee since the beginning
of the drive.
Dr. N. A. M, MacKenzie, in a.circular letter to the faculty, urged the
Memorial Committee to include adequate facilities for athletics and recreation for faculty members. Dr.
MacKenzie, suggested also that a
plan of deferred payment of contributions be instituted,
This drive will further aid the Gym
Fund, which was swelled last week
by the additional $2 levy on payment
of AMS fees for the spring term.
At the same time, proposals for
amelioration of student veterans' financial problems included in a brief
submitted by Branch 72 to the National
Conference of Student Veterans, and
other proposals adopted by the Conference, including a suggestion for
cost-of-living bonuses, will be given
the full support by the Branch
through Parliamentary and Canadian
Legion channels.
The cost-of-living bonus idea was
supported by Branch 72 at the Conference on the basis-of its previously
declared intention to pursue its policy of asking increases only in the
event of a sharp rise in the cost of
living, causing mass withdrawals from
the University Training Program. It
was felt by the Branch, as a result of
the recommendations of its executive,
that in view of the government's refusal to even consider new demands
for increases at this time, pressing
any campaign for this purpose would
not be effective -

the Department of Veterans' Affairs
In spite' of the fact that more than
4200 cheques were issued during the
first two days of the distribution
period, pick-ups of the remaining 600
cheques have been slow.
Change Seen For
Book Exchange
The book exchange has transacted
$860 worth of business in the first
term, announces Don McRae, AMS
In tendering his fall financial report to the Student Council, McRae
bad several recommendations to make
concerning the exchange.
He urged that the exchange be
opened earlier in the term, perhaps
a few days before the session begins.
McRae felt that the exchange
should be situated in a more central
spot in the general area of the quad.
Last year it was located in the Men's
Club Room of the Brock.
Although the exchange is a nonprofit organization, a ten per cent
honorarium was paid to the tw.o
"The Exchange is invaluable to the
students as text books at a premium
owing to current paper shortages,"
McRae stated.

The Ubyssey is constantly amused by
certain student officials who generally think
very kittle of The Ubysgey's opinions and effectiveness, but who suddenly find the paper
absolutely indispensable whenever they happen
to be organizing some event.
Most amusing of all recently have been the
members of the Elections Committee of the
Student Council, who when confronted with
the necessity of running tihe AMS elections on
a more practical basis could think of very little
else but allowing tihe candidates to put up
another couple of posters and to put another
hundred or so w<*rds in Statements to be
printed ui The Ubyssey. *
" In passing, it migh} be noljed that no ono
todk fie! trouble, to consult j Ubyssey editors
about this step: *t is true that the paper
belongs to the students and should be for their
service, bjutty is alsq tru^ thjatj the people who
do the work in producing the paper might
profitably be consulted about appropriate
lengths of statements. Those editors, however,
are used to such typW of officials and shall do
their best to co-operate.
But this paper would also like to know
when on earth the Elections Committee is going
to shake itself out of its lethargy and spend a
little more time on the problem. Actually, the
three members should have started work on
revision of their regulations last fall, instead of
waiting until several groups, including The
Ubyssey, prompted them to act this zhontih.
In fact, there were recommendations standing
over from last year's committee which this
year's group hadn't apparently bothered to
The few changes made so far are ludicrous
and still leave the regulations inadequate for
a campus of nearly nine thousand voters. Adding several posters and lengthening statements
is not enough to gain the interest necessary.
There are indications already from some of
the candidates that they intend to campaign
on a scale far beyond the limited imagination
of the Elections Committee. If the committee
does not act soon it will be faced with many
rule infractions, and it will have only itself to
Practically nothing has been done to ensure
that the polling is carried on as efficiently as
it might be. For one thing, it is ridiculous to
assume that an electoral district housing nine
thousand people can be accomodated on voting day in the foyer of the auditorium. Why
not set up polling booths according to faculty,
making it easier for students to vote and for
officials to scrutineer?
It is true that the Undergraduate Societies
Committee is working out suggestions for revision, but why has the Elections Committee
not done a little work itself on the problem?
In that way, alternative suggestions could be
considered, rather than having a block of ideas

person—where one has to face the
same problems and work out. solutions has a wonderful effect in bringing about new appreciation and tolerance for the harassed parent. An ex-

"If I were a father," chirps an observant nine-year-old, "I
would never make mean, sarcastic remarks to my children."
"I don't see how parents can expect
their kids to stay home for their fun,
if they're always nagging about the
noise they make and criticizing their
friends," comments another sage.
"Kids only tell lies when they're
scared to death. I would tell my family a lot more if they didn't ask so
many questions like a detective or
something," adds a third child-psychologist of thirteen.
These comments could be excerpts
from any of many new radio programs, teen town columns, or mock-
courts which are beginning to spring
up throughout the continent. The
feature they have in common is that
the old roles are reversed, children
rather than their parents are given
an opportunity to ask questions
criticize their parent's technique of
child training, and put forth their
own suggestions as to better methods
of discipline. Most of them deal with
the age-old problems of homework,
disobedience, getting to bed on time,
responsibility for household chorea,
pocket money, even behavior problems such as lying and stealing.
I am convinced that such enterprises which encourage an objective,
constructive attitude on the part of
both parents and children can make
a contribution toward improving the
mental health of our youth. Psychologists since the time of Pericles have
recognized the value of emotional
catharsis as a means of relieving
pent-up tension. Gripe sessions are
used in the army, people talk out
their resentments and worries with
friends, "Complaint Boxes" are available at many places of work. All of
these are a help in setting the poisons of .hostility and fear out tf the
system. Children are learning early
the effectiveness of being able to
state their complaints frankly in a
controlled setting.
But of even further value in promoting  understanding  between  any
lose his old resentment of the professors whose exams he once criticized so heatedly.
Naturally by virtue of their greater
experience and better judgement,
parents must lay down rules and dictate policy in most aspects of the
child's life. Yet within the limits set
by parents, there should be freedom
of choice for the child in many
things—a freedom which is too often
not encouraged, or even permitted,
ky over-possessive parents. Yet we
learn by our own experiences; parents, by taking every responsibility,
deprive their children of this.
The essence of lire is its change and
oonsequent problaau-and the essence
of living is the ability to handle what
comes along by oneself. Sharing of
responsibilities between parents and
child are conductive te Independence
and meturity-the essentials of gaad

think a littl
Psychology, thought by many to'be
the most vital branch of science today,
■is no longer theory without application. This comparatively new field
of thought is past its infancy. Now
it has reached its youth and the world
is becoming aware of its power.
In Australia, two schools have lifted the theories of child psychology
out of the text book and found how
well they actually work. One school
is in Sydney, the other in Geelong,
near Melbourne. One need only compare the children of these schools with
those of state schools to realize their
future value to society.
A government school Inspector reported that he has never met children
more advanced in academic study
than the children of one of these
schools, St. John's Grammar School,
in Sydney.
A. S, Neill, whose books have delighted and inspired parents in every
land, has a school in England which
will be considered progressive twenty
years from now.   This school is des
cribed in his books The Problem
Child, That Dreadful School and The
Problem Parent.
Encouraging results have been obtained by H. B. Fitch, principal of
Templeton Junior High, in Vancouver. Here students run their own
school. They have a wide variety of
courses from which to choose and are
not weighed down with unnecessary
burdensome homework. Through a
student council the children discipline themselves. The teachers, thus
relieved of much detailed administration, have more time to make classes
interesting. Most important of all
the students love it.
To carry out this work on a national scale would involve tremendous
expense. Teachers would have to be
thoroughly trained, salaries raised,
classes cut, and students subsidised.
The cost, however, is trifling compared with the results obtained. Psychologists tell us that the character of
a person  is formed within the first
seven years of his life. This is when
it is decide! whether a person is to
become a murderer or a statesman. I
believe we have enough murderers.
Consider the existing educational
system. Few believe it is beyond improvement. The dread of examinations is rm ltiplied in some particularly sensi*ve children until they are
literally sick with fear. Gloomy grammar presented by dreary teachers is
something most children would much
rather avoid. And why study languages at a tl if such training does not
enable us 1o use them.
The system is obsolete. It never
has, nor never will produce worthwhile citizens until vast changes have
been made. As Brock Chisholm has
said, the reason we must make war
among ourselves every twenty years
is that there have never been enough
mature people in the world to prevent it. If we do not allow mature
people to develop how then are we
to have any?

of the problem lies the apparently
unjustified ^assumption, made by the
Society, that there would be, in a city
of this size, at least eight hundred
people with nothing better to do on
a Sunday evening than go to an excellent film.
Aiding in the downfall of this unbridled overestimate was the name

At present it is planned to put on
three more showings each, for Saturdays and Sundays, plus a possible additional two showings in March. Films
to be shown include Mayer's 'Cabinet

Players Add New Stage
Catwalk, J<\Properties
A professional type "catwalk", comprised of an elevated
platform spanning the stage and suspended immediately above
and behind the front curtain, is the latest Players' Club back-
stage property addition.
Joined to this structure are rails
of pipe which atrvt to hold the various spot and floodlights used"*during
a stage performance. A man may, by
this new arrangement, stay up above
the actors and direct the necessary
lighting. At present the lighting power used ia approximately ten thousand watts but the construction is
built to carry a load of sixty thousand watts if necessary.
The nine hundred pound prop addition is the only one of Its kind In

And she would come off Queen.

Dear Sir:
It was indeed disappointing that The
Ubyssey chose not to carry any report
of last Wednesday's meeting of the
Legion. Some of the decisions reached there directly affect the welfare
of 3000 veterans on the campus and
surely have a news value equal to the
"Deep River Boys".
For instance, one important result
of the meeting was that the UBC
Legion, which for the past year has
Iconsistently supported proposals for
increased grants, voted down a motion
that a campaign for a cost of living
bonus be inaugurated. Speaking
against this motion, President Grant
Livingstone asserted that ha was opposed to any increase campaign unless
"circumstances altered radically and
it could be proved that veterans were
leaving University en masse for financial reasons". Executive Don Lans-
kail pleaded with the members not
to "embarass" the government in its
"fight against inflation" by asking
for more money.
Surely this change of policy and
the accompanying pronouncements by
student veteran officials are of sufficient interest to the average vet to
warrant being published. In view of
the fact that all other Legion meetings
have been given publicity in your
paper, why this particular omission?
Yours truly,
Dear Sir:
For nothing better to do one night,
a friend of mine and I added up tha
W. M. gym totals as printed in The
Ubyssey on Tuesday, January 14 and
we were amazed to find that either
the printer or the gym office had added 1202,023.00 and S32.000.00 and tS7,«
500.00 with the amazingly mathematical incorrect answer of $271,023.90.
Truly amazing, isn't it?
And something else puzzles me:
why was 18,038.48 listed with no
source attached?

Inter B Hoopsters
BowTo Arrow Five
Misfortune continued to ride in the
Varsity Inter B hoop chariot again
Friday night when the campus cagers
took an almost traditional two-point
loss, this time a 27-25 nose-out from
the Arrows quintet. The Friday night
affair was the sixth of such contests
in which the Inter B boys have overcome a deficit, only to drop the game
at the last moment.
Arrows led the studes by a 14-3
count early in the game, but a point
making streak from the Blue and
Gold outfit put the count at 25-23 for
Varsity. But the truckmen came back
with two quick baskets in the dying
minutes of the struggle to leave the
frustrated Varsity crew on the lower
side of the scant win margin.
Dark horse of the UBC performance was Walt Manning, who iwent
berserk in the third quarter to put
Varsity back in the running and rack
up seven points for himself.
Ruggermen Prep
For Trip South
Preparation for the biggest sport
event of the year, the invasion of the
campus by the rugger team of the
University of California, is keeping
the boys of the local rugby squads
busy these days. Perspiration is becoming second nature to the students
as strenuous workouts are the order
of the day.
Unable to use the open fields for
over a week, the budding Thunderbirds took to indoor work under the
whip of chief coach, Roy Haines.
Coach Haines, who goes through the
exercises with the boys, is preparing
a championship crew for battle.
The rlgourous training is more than
necessary in order to stand the pace
of the schedule which will see the
Blue and Gold playing in Vancouver,
Victoria and California, as well as
maintaining a full list of Stadium en-
Opposition (will be powerful in all
cases. The Californians, although not
playing rugby as a major sport, keep
their champion grid men In condition
by playing rugger in the spring. Possibilities are that big names in the
grid world will be on hand when the
students from Berkley invade the local stadium.
Roy Haines has another problem,
that of selecting the Thunderbird
squad from the two existing senior
teams. Both aggregations, the Varsity cup winners and the hard playing
UBC lads, have a large number of
top performers who really know how
to handle the oval ball, Openings
for twenty players will be available
and "the eligible boys number approximately thirty.
Big problem of the season is transportation, as Thunderbirds travel to

Washington Skimen Baffle
Varsity With Banff Entry
What with the last minute entry of the University of Washington Huskies ski team in the big inter-collegiate ski meet at
Banff this weekend, the UBC planksters are beginning to wonder if the downhill, slalom and giant slalom courses are going
to be a bed of roses.
But Coach Peter Vajda is sure of one thing, and that is his
ski team is composed of the best skiers on the campus. After
long and careful picking from the multitude of skiers at UBC,
Coach Vajda has selected his 11 men who will entrain tonight
for the popular Alberta ski centre.

'Birdmen Take Seventh Straight Victory
The hoopla artistry playing for UBC this year is certainly turning out to be a surprise
package, for the Thunderbirds did it again Saturday night when they out-worked and outplayed a highly-touted Bremerton quintet at the UBC gym. After the smoke of battle had
finally cleared away, a quick glance at the scoreboard gave the 'Birdmen a 51-41 victory in a
game that saw Coach Osborne put every one of his eleven men on the floor as he tried out
letter to the editor
.Dear Sir:
It appears that Mr. Peter Vajda,
Varsity ski instructor, has been engulfed in the turmoil of preparation
for ski meets and has consequently
been deceived as to his duties as ski
coach. Mr. Vajda appears to have
forgotten one factor in his haste.
Namely, that there are many more
competitive skiers enrolled on our
campus than those fortunate enough
to spend their Christmas holidays
under his instruction.
Dissatisfaction has arisen amongst
the majority of potential skiers on
our campus. Apparently Mr. Vadja
is under the illusion that only the
best skiers visited Revelstoke with
him this Christmas. The trip referred
to resulted after much effort by Mr.
Vajda and his colleagues in arranging accomodations for those enthusiasts able to spend the holidays skiing
at Revelstoke. His plans were successful. Over sixty Varsity Outdoor
Club members accompanied him, and
out of this large group he segregated
those interested in competition and
concentrated upon their development.
Those skiers that could not afford
to accompany Peter had to be content and trudged gamely up their
respective mountains or journeyed
merrily to their interior homes. They
too entertained hopes of qualifying
for the Varsity ski team and practiced diligently with that aim in view.
Two weeks have elapsed since Mr.
Vajda's return to Varsity—ample
time to run-off team eliminations to
decide who, amongst all competitive
skiers interested, would constitute the
teams entered in the inter-collegiate
ski meet at Banff this coming Saturday. A berth on one of these teams
is one to be earned, not one to be
made possible by ^discriminate
various combinations.
There are many skiers on our campus who did not go to Revelstoke but
could possibly place amongst the top
ten men. Probably Mr. Vajda has
chosen the best men to visit Banff
but if properly conducted eliminations had been conducted, at least that
choice would be authentic.
If elimination trials had been used
they would have served two purposes.
First, it would have established the
best skiers in that particular race
and secondly, what is even more Important, it would have fostered a
competitive spirit amongst the less-
polished skiers. It is.to these Inexperienced types that Mr. Vajda must
rely upon for the nucleus of future
One cannot justly belittle the fine
work done by Mr. Vajda in preparing
potential skiers for races. ^However,
of the forty or more men who attended the dry-skiing lessons given
every Friday night before Christmas,
it is interesting to note that only a
small percentage of them were even
considered as ski-team material,
These are the men who deserve a
fair chance.
A clique governed the activities of
last year's ski team and it now appears obvious that it will again do so

Chiefs Win, Lose
In Weekend Games
Doug 'Whittle's Chiefs managed an
even split over the weekend, as they
whooped it up Friday eve at the
Exhibition Gardens and took the
Stacy's into camp 41-35, only to bow
before the league-leading Meraloma
quintet the next night by a 45-3&
The Friday night contest proved to
be an uphill battle for the students
from wire to wire. Playing a rugged
and rough brand of ball, the Chiefs
caught the Shoemen in the third quar-
ter at a 23-all score, and went on to
rack up a six point margin in the
next 15 minutes.
Broadhead sparked the Chief attack
in the first panel, as the Blue and
Gold barely managed to keep in the
game, Stacey's going ahead, 23-19.
Ken Wright's somewhat torrid aggregation maintained the margin to the
half time gong, when they loped off
the floor on top of a 23-19 count.
After the breather, the Chien.
straightened out their sights, and
hung up a large eight points while
limiting their opponents to a meagre
foul shot. The scoreboard read 27-24
as the Chiefs and Stacey's pell-melled
into the final heat, and Blue and
Gold were never in trouble for the
next 10 minutes.
Height and experience payed off
with dividends in the Saturday
night contest. Sandy Robertson, Ivor
Wyn, and the rest of the Physical
Education Department on the Meraloma roster allowed their younger
confreres in casaba a brief lead in
the first quarter, but passed them in
the second to control the game
handily to the final wire.
The win for the Meralomas maintained their undefeated streak, and
clearly established them in mid-
season as the class of the loop. The
Chiefs are currently tied for second
place with the Royal City Adanacs,
who took the measure of the lowly
Lauries on Friday night.
CHIEFS—Bojus, Bossoms 7,Mitchei,
Town 6, Broadhead 5, Cook 2, L/etnam
6, Boyet, 9, McLeod 2, Capozzi 4, Mc-
Keachie). Total—j41.
And those second string kids really
got out there and hustled. The fans
saw for the first time why some of
those boys were moved up to the
'Birds' quintet.
Off to a slow start, it was 8-0 for the
visitors before the 'Birds icould manage to find their checks. A fast passing attack was working nicely for
the Rockets and things looked bad
for the Varsity squad. But then it
happened and the 'Birds came to life.
The Local students didn't stop until
they had scored twelve straight points
and they kept that lead from there
in to the tape. The Bremerton squad
seemed to grow tired under the rapid
pace kept up by the continual stream
of 'Birds and soon the shooting eyes
of the Bremerton lads was so far off,
that discouragement set in.
Pat McGeer ended up with the scoring honors for the night with a large
16-point total for his efforts. The
dependable Ron Weber took nine and
Nev Munro, who is quickly becoming
a first string artist, notched eight of
the best.
As coach Osborne threw in the reserves consistently, the fans saw a
little more than usual of the boys who
have been patiently waiting their
chance. The work of Bobby Scarr
and Gerry Stevenson looked impressive and once again the crowd cheered the antics of "Long John" Forsythe.
Next week's hoopla bill features a
double header when the 'Birds meet
the Seattle Collge quintet. The News
Herald award for the sports woman
of the year will be announced at the

Victories in all twelve events and
u 4-1 win in an Aquabolo game is
what the Varsity Swim Club can
boast of After Saturday night's swim
meet with the Vancouver YMCA
Aquatic Club.
Neither team was at full strength,
but the Varsity people especially
were at a deficiency since neither
ace swimmers Irene Strong nor Dick
Ellis were present.
Aquabolo is something similar to
water polo. Instead at each end of the
pool there is a basket as in basketball and a gong on the backboard
just above the basket. If the player
sinks a basket he gets one point; if
he hits the gong he also gets one
point. If he can do both he gets two
This new game, born of the genius
of a Vancouver army veteran, has
the trace of many rough-and-tumble
sports. Even though the quarters are
only two and a half minutes long,
fatigue called for many substitutions.
Invented by Norman Cox of the
Vancouver YMCA, Aquabolo allows
anything and everything within reason. If a player won't let go of the
ball, it is up to the other player to
make him let go. Substitution is allowed at any time and ends are
changed at each quarter arid after
each point is scored.
