Waiver Campaign
Inaugurated; New
Election Methods
•   THE FIRST meeting of the Spring term of the A.M.S.
sneaked in and out before an apathetic quorum during
a short half-hour session 12:30 Wednesday in the Auditorium.
One Man's
• "WE OUGHTA shoot all the
little yellow   "
This rather extreme remark was
passed in the smoking compartment of a C.P.R. train which was
carrying us toward the great metropolis of Vancouver. Thus we
were introduced to the great British Columbia bogey man the
(sssh)   Yellow Peril.
Coming from a prairie city
where the "Yellow Peiil" consists
•f a mere handful of brown people
who spend most of their time
minding their own business, we
were Just a little surprised to find
that people on the coast had such
strong feeling.
Disregarding the foregoing suggestion as being slightly impractical not to mention the fact that
it is rumored to be uncivilized to
shoot large bodies of citizens
merely because their ancestors
were born in other countries, wo*
are not surprised to see many
people going Into a lather now
that the old bogey man has grown
into a full-sized Karloff.
Most publicized suggestion of
recent weeks Is that of Alderman
Malford D. Wilson, who suggested
moving residents of Japanese origin from coastal points to internment camps in the east, preferably
east of the Rockies. The Japanese
thus treated would be investigated
to test their loyalty, then if found
loyal they would be released to do
farm work and road work and
such like as long as they did not
enter the coastal area of B.C.
We phoned Mr. Wilson and
found him to be a most pleasant
person with one of the nicest
voices it ha3 ever been our pleasure to hear on a telephone. He
seemed very sincere in his ideas
and as we do not have any reason
to believe otherwise we will not
suggest that his motives are anything but a desire to do the right
thing in a time of crisis. But we
do not agree with him.
When the war with Germany
broke out the R.C.M.P. proved
to be quite competent in dealing
with the alien population. They
quietly removed all those known
to be dangerous and kept a close
check on the others. The lack of
sabotage in our country would
lead us to believe that the government knew what they were doing.
When the Pacific war began
last month authorities took steps
against the danger of fifth column activity on the coast.
Now the danger as we see it is
not in curbing those Japanese who
may be planning to extend a welcome to Invaders, but it lies in
the possibility of creating new
enemies from the ranks of th?
Japanese who are now loyal, but
who will resent being pushed
Alderman Halford poetically observes that "the rain falls on just
and the unjust" which is no doubt
true, but rain and Internment
camps are two different matters.
We would suggest that the proper
constitutional authorities are in a
better position to handle the situation than a Vancouver city alderman.
So our idea is that we leave it
up to the people who are in a
position to really know what is
going on. Their past record is sufficiently good to warrant confidence in them at present. From
what we can determine many Japanese are loyal and fhey have
suficient understanding to realize
that any reasonable treatment, although it may inflict hardships,
is justitied in view of the war,
and they will submit to it without
turning against the country.
Finally, how about Alberta? We
feel that there would be a good
deal of resentment if large groups
of Japanese were suddenly turned
loose In their midst to fend for
themselves. Keeping aliens in internment camp- I.* one thing. Providing for unfortunate who have
been torn away from their means
of livelihood because British Columbia folks got exiited is another.
Chief business of the meeting
was the renewal of last year's
scheme for the donation of Caution money to the Red Cross and
adoption of amendments to the
Constitution changing the election
dates in order to enable the student body to make a more carefully considered choice in the election of the Society's President
and Treasurer.
Archie Bain took the platform
to present the case for waivers of
caution money to the Red Cross.
Bam pointed out that although
there had been no objection to the
principle of waiving rights to return of caution money, a suggestion had been made that only a
part of the $5 fee be donated.
The system as it now stands,
Bain explained, gives the University first claim on the money
for lab breakages, overdue books,
etc., and leaves the money then
outstanding to the Red Cross. The
responsibility after the student
signs a waiver remains his to see
that there is some money left at
the term's end for the Red Cross.
The motion was carried unanimously. Council members signed
waivers on the platform and waivers were distributed to the audience, which returned 340 signed
The question of amendments to
the Constitution proposed at the
last meeting of the A.M.S. was
opened by Bob Bonner, Chairman
of the committee appointed to investigate the advisability of changing the present system of elections
The committee recommended that;
(1) The election of President
take place on the first Wednesday
of February.
(2) The election of Treasurer
take place on the second Wednesday.
(3) The election of the remaining office holders take place on
the third Wednesday.
f4) That all candidates must address the student body in the
Auditorium on the Monday preceding their election day.
(5) That the newly elected
President and Treasurer must attend all meetings of the Council
for ths remainder of the term an.'.
that all other office holders must
attend at least half of the subsequent meetings of the old Council.
(6) That at the end of the
spring term the old and new
Council should hold a joint meeting to familiarize the new Council
witli their duties.
The first two clauses, dealing
with the election of President and
Treasurer are designed to give the
student more time to study the
candidates and their platforms for
these Important positions and to
give a candidate defeated for one
of these posts the opportunity to
run for a less impemnt one on
the Council.

English Class
• SILENT and stunned English
2 classes heard on Wednesday
that there will be three instead of
two lectures a week.
Reasons for the change wero
given by Prof. G. G. Sedgwick,
"Results of the Christmas examinations were terrible," he said.
"I warn you that the axe will fall
in April unless most of you improve."
Prof. F. G. C. Wood also told
the men that he would see to it
that they improve.
"You are lucky to have an intelligent person like myself in
front of jux" he said. "Many of
you are in the last stages of paralysis and it will take me to pull
you out of it.'

• DISCHARGED - Typical of
the Japanese men who have
been comrades-in-arms to other
trainees in the C.O.T.C. is Michi-
yoshi Symiya, first year arts student, shown above taking his uniform into the orderly room.
He along with many other Japanese has worn the Canadian army
uniform for the last time. For a
year and a half they have drilled
with their friends of the white
race. Now it has ended.
Lieut.Col. Shrum said that a
"ticklish situation' had been averted. The University could not
go on training the Japanese.

as well as ours," added Dr. L. S.
Klink.  "Feeling has run  high  in

Red Cross Dance
Set For Jan. 23
• # "SAY SADIE, have you heard that there's going to be
another Red Cross Ball this year?" That's the word that
will be going around the campus from now on.
Wood Won't
Talk; BAC's
• Interrupted exam time-tables,
due to blackouts, cut down on
the number of B.A.C. degrees conferred at UB.C. this year.
As usual second and third year
Applied Science students received
the worst beating as they wera
the only ones to complete their
exams. One first year Science class
received generous war and Christmas bonuses to tide them over.
The Registrar's Office has refused to give any information on
whether any bouncing will be
done after the rest of the exams
are written off, and interested students must worry it out for themselves.
The date is January 23 at the
Commodore. The price is $2.25 per
person and it's Dutch treat. Lavish arrangements are being made
for the ball which will be a trans-
Canada affair.
Other universities that will have
a ball the same evening we Mc-
Gill,     Dalhousie,     Saskatchewan,
Queens, New Brunswick, and Manitoba.
Anyone on the campus may sell
tickets and so be eligible for the
prize of a free ticket going to the
boy and the girl selling the most
Tickets to sell may be procured
from Shirley Wismer, Graham
McCall, or Bob Rose. Raffle
tickets are now out on the campus
and there are more than 35 prizes
with a grand prize of a $300 squirrel coat donated by R. J. Pop.
Last year the ball netted $2,000 for
the Red Cross.
Pubsters Surprised, Shaken
By Visits Of Apparition
•   GOOKER came scampering around the corner and into
the Pub. He hit the desk and then the wall and on the
third attempt managed to get through the swinging door.
Gooker was still breathing heavily and as the silence became pregnant we watched the swiftly growing shadow approach the door.
We knew what to expect. Around
the corner came a little human
shaped figure in a loud plaid jacket. From the hat pulled down
and the full muffler nothing could
be seen of the face but the nose,
straight across the office, through
the Totem office and into the telephone booth walked the little apparition.
Agi.in it had happened. F--(.ry
day the thing used the :ek; '.one
As everyone knows, the pub phone
is  only for  the  use  of pubsters.
This   thing   defied   us.    It   never
spoke. It just used th>  phone. Wo
could see the thing through he
window now. It held us in a
strange dread. I knew that something must be done.
Gooker had come to by now and
was staring at the booth.
"Gooker", I grated, "You must
go in there and get it."
Gooker fell into the waste basket. I pulled him to his feet and
threw him into the totem room.
He crept to the door and threw it
"Its not there", he yammered.
Sure enough it was not there.
The telephone hung on the wall.

creatures would leave it hanging

Take Over
As Men Go
• "GIRLS run the American Universities". This startling report has been brought back by
Harry Home, U.B.C. delegate to
the third annual convention of the
North West Province of the Newman Club Federation held Dec.
27 to 29 under the auspices of
Washington State College and the
University of Idaho.
"There Is a 20 percent drop In
the attendance of men" says Harry
regretfully, "Since the beginning
of the war the draft has caught
many and more will go soon. Women run all the activities."
He was besieged with Queries as
to the conduct of the war, and the
altitude of Canadians towards
joining ino a common country with
the states.
A full report of the convention
will be given at the regular meeting of the Newman Club at Newman House, Jan. 14.

Summer Employment Data
•   YESTERDAY, Dean Dorothy Mawdsley revealed that
plans are being made to find summer employment for
co-eds at the end of the term.
She asks that all girls who have worked during previous summers fill out the forms provided in her office
whether or not they want work this summer.
This is the only way in which       .^m,^^—-^^^__-^_^__^___
she can know what type of position is open to students.
Dr. Mawdsley stated that even
if the girls are wt*eVf at the
same job again this year, this will
in no way interfere with that
girl's chances for getting her job
Already 105 girlc have registered
in the dean's office. Among the
jobs thr.t n-eds held down last
summer office work has top billing with 22 out of the 105 girls
engaged in it. Other jobs which
claimed many girls are waitress-
ing, sales work, playground directing,  and nursing.
These jobs gained for the co-edj
from $50 to $500 for the summer.
$100 to $200 oti the average

forms before the end of the term
can not be assisted later..
Until more students fill out
forms nothing can be done to

What Japanese Problem?
"They should all be rounded up first and
investigated later."
History students will, of course, find it
difficult to place that statement. It is not
in the Bill of Rights or the Magna Carta.
It is in no hallowed, revered, museum-stored
'document of the rights and dignity of man.
It is none of these. It belongs to one
of our more solid burghers—a city alderman, in fact.
This gentleman, of course, was referring
to the Japanese in this province. He was
well qualified to make that statement, for
he has been actively associated with most,
if not all, of the Jap-baiting activities in this
city for some years. He was present on a
public platform in South Vancouver shortly
after the start of this war when an overflow crowd of citizens, ably urged and noisily harangued, passed hearty resolutions
condemning local employers who retained
the services of workers of German origin
while "our own" boys stubbed their toes in
Shortly afterwards, "hoodlums" stoned
the windows of a German Lutheran church
in that district, to the palpable amazement
of the committee concerned.
Later, when no citizens were found garrotted in their beds, when the hysteria had
passed, when certain individuals found there
was no more political capital to be made out
of an unhappy situation, the city relaxed.
But now we have a new scare, A bigger
and better scare. It is the old 'Yellow Peril'
—which, apart from the unfailing interest
of the "comic" strips and Adventure magazine has not unduly kept the adult population from its beds.
And because we still shiver delicioualy
at the sound of fire-engines and cluster a-
round overturned autos, we are careless of
a lot of things.
We are careless of the rights of man,
for one, in spite of the fact that the admittedly cardinal principle of our law is that
"every man shall be judged innocent until
proven guilty."
Reconcile that, if you can, with the
statement at the head of this article. We
don't "like Jew-baiters and Jew-baiting.
When did Jap-baiting become patriotism?
We of this generation know something
of these second-generation, Canadian-born
Japanese. We went through school with
them. Many of them are still good friends
of ours. And when we read such references
(as were recently made here) as ". . . slick,
U.B.C.-trained Jap apes", our stomachs
turn over collectively in loathing and
Born in Canada, conforming to our laws,
their darker pigmentation, to our social illiterate, stamps them forever with the impolite, impolitic and incorrect designation
of "Jap". Powell street is our counterpart
of the German Ghetto, the American Harlem. As in the case of those two charming
"Chinese" Canadians who graduated from
this university, married and tried to establish their home in one of our more pleasant
suburbs (and retired in the face of an indignant uproar) we tacitly bar them from
our midst.
What then, are we trying to do—perpetuate Kipling's little jingle to the unsocial,
unchristian and totally unnecessary point
of making natural, enduring and hopeless
enemies of them?
Faculty Forum
By F. /#. Soward.
• AS 1941 BEGAN its perilous course
Adolf Hitler assured his people that it
would bring about the ultimate decision and
would "become the historic year of the new
order in Europe." At the close of the year
he was dismissing Brauchitsch, his senior
field marshal upon whom he had heaped
honours after the fall of France and was
having Dr. GoeHbels broadcast an appeal in
his name for all sorts of warm clothing for
the troops on the Eastern Front who were
facing "an enemy who is superior in numbers and in materials." At the beginning of
the year Britain and the Dominions (Eire
excepted) stood alone against an enemy
who had conquered six nations in less than
90 days of fighting, and who held the coast
of Western Europe from Narvik to the Bay
of Biscay. As 1941 drew to a close the
British Foreign Secretary, Mr. Eden, was
conferring with Joseph Stalin in Moscow,
the ablest British general, Sir Archibald
Wavell, was conferring in Chungking upon
plans for joint action with the ruler of gallant China, and the British Prime Minister
was shaping a grand alliance in Washington
with President Roosevelt. In these striking
contrasts are to be seen the reasons why
we face 1942 with reasoned optimism.
Tragedy, heroism, brutality and treachery were curiously blended in the past
twelve months. Two prime ministers, the
leaders of Hungary and Greece committed
suicide when caught in the toils of the Axis
leaders determined to make them their
pawns. The heroic people of Greece, who
had driven the Italians back to the shores
of the Adriatic after Mussolini's ill-timed
invasion, went down to defeat at the hands
of the Nazis in a lightning campaign where
machines were decisive. Their neighbors,
the Yugo-Slavs, likewise chose death to dishonour after a cowardly government willing
to become an Axis pawn had been overthrown in a national rising. Belgrade's name
joined the list of martyred cities that included Warsaw, Rotterdam and Chungking.
The French hostages, shot in the ratio of
fifty for every murdered German officer,
the unhappy Czechs handed over to the
tender mercies of the sadist chief of the
Gestapo, Mimmler. The stubbornly hostile
Norwegians told by their Gauleiter that "it
is a matter of indifference to Germany if
some thousands or perhaps tens of thousands of Norwegian men, women and children starve and freeze during the winter" are
only a few of the silent witnesses to a callous Nazi brutality in 1941 for which there
will some day be a fearful reckoning.
Of heroism this year has produced far
more than a few sentences can hope even to
indicate. High on the list must come the
men of the British Merchant Navy who suf-
ferred from submarine, mine and plane in
order to give Britain the tools of war and
the foodstuffs without which she would perish. Lot us honour the garrison of Tobruck,
who held the fort for almost nine months,
the defenders of Crete of whom at least 1500
are still holding cut in guerrilla warfare,
the night fighters of the R.A.F. who shot
down 250 bombers from the skies in three
months, the Russian soldiers who barred
the way to Moscow, the garrison of Hong
Kong, among whom were our own men,
v/ho gallantly held a sacrifice position, and
Captain Colin Kelly who gave his life in
sinking the battleship, Haruna. There was
no traitor in 1941 to match the feats of Quisling and Laval in the previous year, but the
men of Vichy reached lower levels of shame
in their chosen path of collaboration, and the
Japanese aviators at Pearl Harbour showed
how well they had learned the Axis technique of stabbing an opponent in the back.
This sudden challenge to the United
States, at a time when Japanese envoys were
still engaged in Washington in trying to
make the American government "understand" Japan's self appointed mission in East
Asia, must rank with the invasion of Soviet
Russia as the two great surprises of the
year. It made the American people close
ranks and rally behind their president in a
way which would have seemed impossible
in the preceding months. Then the Lower
House of Congress had only passed by one
vote the bill to extend the term of selective
service and only by the scant margin of 18
votes had repealed the clause of the Neutrality Act barring American vessels from
combat zones. Today all this is very ancient
history. Recruiting is five times as great as
when the United States went to war in 1917
and the American people are facing cheerfully a war budget for the coming fiscal year
of $50,000,000,000.
soviet surpki:;::
The second great surprise, the attack
on Soviet Russia, ended an uneasy partnership which had precipitated war in 1939.
We may never know why Hitler chose to
challenge so mighty a neighbour but he has
told us that he dared not face war with
Britain in the West with Soviet Russia in
his rear, and he may have counted on a
speedy victory to give him control of natural resources which would render him immune to the British blockade. His third
motive, to confuse the world by posing as
the defender of Christian civilization against
atheistic communism, for which purpose he
included in his legions Finns, Rumanian
Slovaks, Magyars, Spaniards, Belgians and
French, failed because of Mr. Churchill's
prompt declaration that he had abandoned
none of his views on Communism but "any
man or state who fights against Nazism will
have our aid. That is our policy and that
is our declaration." President Roosevelt followed with a similar promise and Nazi propaganda had been punctured.
Punctured equally thoroughly was the
myth of Nazi military invincibility, as Leningrad refused to fall, Moscow repelled an
invader within 30 miles of the Kremlin and
Rostov was recaptured, one week after the
Germans had jubilantly proclaimed they
were on the threshold of the Caucasus.
Hitler may promise his people new victories
in the spring but the promise will have a
hollow sound to those who remember his
declaration in October that the Soviet armies
were crushed never to rise again.

Following  is  a  solicited  statement from the president of the
Japanese Students' Club.
The Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
We, the young Canadians of Japanese descent, more than any other
group had hoped and prayed that
a war between Great Britain and
Japan would never be fought. Yet,
last month our fears suddenly became a grim and tragic reality.
Some find it difficult even yet to
fully realize that a major war on
the Pacific is now a fact.
The loyalty of Canadian-bom
Japanese is constantly being questioned. Some suspect us of absurd
fifth column activities', making reference to the treachery reported
in Hawaii. It is indeed unfortunate
that newspapers emphasized only
the hideous aspect. Too many have
not been informed that the defenders of Hawaii, gallant as they
were, consisted of not only Americans but native-born Japanese as
well. To some things we raise
little objection because we realize
that although unfavorable to us
certain precautions must be taken.
However, upon hearing unjust and
uncalled-for views we naturally
feel quite indignant. The lack of
logic in branding individuals as
disloyal merely because of racial
stock surely is obvious, only to a
certain European is it not comprehensible.
We Rave avowed unflinching allegiance to Canada and have continued to respond most enthusiasm
tically to every mentlonable patriotic campaign. Had it not been
for restrictions scores would now
bo in our armed forces to join the
few who have already been admitted. Our endeavor is to fulfil our
obligation and gratitude to Canada. To be honest, however, there
is something further, namely, our
realization that a decent livelihood
is possible only in a democracy.
Where else would one find, especially during critical moments, so
much thoughtfulness, tolerance,
and friendliness as we enjoy in
America? Certainly not under totalitarianism.

After Some
• DURING parts of  1936-37  and

pages called Around The Campus
I wrote it. After four years away
from the "sacred halls of learning"
I'd give a good deal to be writing
it again. Even now, when war and

that the average undergraduate
lives in a little world all his own
—sealed in away from anything
that can hurt him, or change his
state of mind. Four yerrs ago I
would have denied that v/ith all
the vehemence possible from a
lanky youth. But its true.
The purpose of this column,
which my former colleagues in the
newspaper world would probably
call an attempted comeback, is
simply to chot about university
praduatcs, what they are doing
and thinking.
Take this business of leaving
university and looking for a job.
If you're not a teacher, a lawyer,
or an engineer—and sometimes
even if you are — you run up
against a scries of rude shocks
that can set you back on your
rear with breath-taking regularity.
It seems the world is made up
of people who want to make money. A lot of them will do anything
to make that money — and if you
raise your plaintive voice in the
interests of things of the soul, you
stamp yourself immediately as
one of those "damn university

something to do with that. Perhaps
when we leave varsity we think
we know too much — actually
know little if nothing about what

column of beefs. The world b

is indigestible, let it pass while
we heap an orchid or so on the

friends. They're going to do Candida again—this time for a worthy
cause. Can't help remembering at
this moment that some of those
Players' Club folk tried to do a
very fine thing last summer in
West Vancouver, with their summer theatre.
Candida for the war effort —
and the summer theatre for the
artistic betterment of the community can be reason for thanking
the   Players'   Club.
Another thought crops up here.
One hears a dozen requests every
week for entertainment for the
troops — all branches. Seems the
Musical Society could do double
duty here. Good publicity for the
university, and a badly needed
service to men who can't get out
many nights a week.

Inter-Fraternity Schedule Now Fully Prepared
Some days ago there was chronicled in a downtown
morning throw-away (hello Ray) the news that little ol'
New York had been set back on its oversized fanny by a
contingent of artillery bearing the colours of the University
si Washington.
The Seattle boys had apparently toppled Long Island
University by some amazing score (the largest ever recorded
in Madison Square Garden) in a set-to billed as basketball.
A mere 72 points, the Huskies rolled up.
Out of startled eyes, the N. Y.'ers viewed for the
firtt time, "explosion ball", and were forced to admit that
"something new had been added" to the hoop game.
Accustomed to witnessing the archaic 'Vet-shot' style,
slow-moving, planned, cautious, the L. I. cagers were baffled
as Husky hoopers cavorted wildly over the maple, dashing
madly, shooting blind, one-handed net swishers.
This vas January, 1942.
Three years ago, our own Maury Van Vliet introduced "explosion ball" to a cynical Vancouver, and was
laughed off the courts. "Boom, boom" the critics chortled
as Maury pushed his Varsity boys through gruelling training
periods, sent them hurtl-
tag across the floor. Introduces • • • •
The old, set-shot system,
exemplified then by Westerns (now Maple Leafs)
caught the popular eye,
and "explosion ball" was
dubbed a dud.
But last year it payed
off with a Dominion
It took time to drill the
new idea, copped from
Maury's Alma Mater, Oregon U., into the students,
took time, too, to erase
reflexes of the old system.
But with the revamping
came the Canadian crown
in a sensational run of
thirteen straight play-off
Now, with Washington
as ambassadors, the East
has learned of the "boom, boom basketball".
The point of the mattei, however, doesn't so much
concern the East (no national unity here) as it does the
carping of critics who are currently giving our cagers a
going-over. It seems the Canadian champs have lost six
straight games, are cellar-bound.
Here, then, is the answer.
When Maury issued his call this Fall, several veterans
of last year's squad didn't answer. There was Pat Flynn in
the air force, Brud Matheson and Doug Pedlow on the ineligible list. It was a big loss. •
So Maury had to start re-building, with green material, never before exposed to the new style. Its a slow job,
requiring time and patience.  But it works.
Wait a year or two, and see.

in a rather sorry state, the unhappy coach hinted to the UBYSSEY, with Al Todd, Stu Todd,
and Dave Thompson on the missing list, and several others hovering about the doubtful eligibility
The sorry state of the falling
stars (Al Todd to work on Wednesdays, Stu Todd slated for the
Air Force, and Dava Todd leaving
Varsity late last year to work) la
only brightened by the fact that
some of the old stars who were
unable to turn up before Christ-
are now free to come out for
the team.
It is hoped that the doubtful eligibility of some of the boys will
be overlooked this time because
of the unusual exam conditions.
However, the situation is "not
so bad it couldn't be worse, but
I can't say much till I see the
team in action", quoth McCarthy.
Indeed, in spite of all their sorrows, the team still holds second
place standing in the Wednesday
afternoon soccer league, and some
of the returned stars are not to
bo sneered at.
Among those who were unable
to turn up before Christmas are
found the notable Dennis Leong,
George Stamatis, Herble Smith,
Walt Green, and Shaw Mizuhara.

• BACK AGAIN we are,  minus
our  BAC'S,  to  distort,  rather
report,  the  actual  sporting  news
on this fair campus 'til April.
Yes, dear reader, 1942 does look
a wee bit brighter for your keyhole carbon paper. At any rate,
our job will be to dish out the
intramural programme stuff from
the head office. We are getting
paid for it, so doing the task won't
hurt so much.
Off to a rapid start, interfrat-

bow in Gymnasium last Wednesday noon. The Beta Theta Pi horde
ran wild over Alpha Delts, 28-4.
Betas, playing with an overflowing bench and a dime a dozen

West Point Grey Branch: TENTH AND SASAMAT
Pub Thwarts Dastardly
Council Fifth Column Plot
•   REVEALED YESTERDAY was one of the most dastardly and most nearly successful fifth column jobs of the
But this war was the Pub-Council game, postponed last term by
the timid Councillors.
At an early hour Thursday
morning, the Intelligence Division
of the Thoth Army unearthed a
crafty plot of the Dirty Nine to
trap three important Press Offic-
e r s — General Archibald Paton,
Rcar-Admiral Lionel Salt, and Air-
Marshal John X. MacKlnlay—
somewhere on the West Coast.
These three master strategists had
been missing since New Year's
On receipt of the new.% fast
commando bands of well-drilled
cub reporters were despatched to
the coast. Shortly before noon,
they returned with the Admiral,
an old Salt, who was found and
rescued on merchant-raider sailing under the name of Lady P—.
Just before press time, Air-Marshal MacKinlay was discovered
suffering from the effects of his
exposure at the hands of the Dirty,
Dirty Nine Old Men.
Thus, with this foul plot ruined,
the Pub forces once again are asking, "When is Council going to
come  out  of  its funk-hole?
P.S. Lionel Salt and Archie Paton
yesterday returned from vacation
work on the coast. Jake MacKinlay is sick with flu.
Globe Trotters
May Play Here
Says Van Vliet
world famous ebony cagers, may
arrive here soon was hinted yesterday by Maury Van Vliet.
Negotiations are practically completed for bringing the dusky stars
to the campus; " I am expecting
a letter at any moment from the
manager of the Globe Trotters
saying they will come" stated Van
The game, if negotiations are
completed, will be played on Friday, January 16 at noon, and there
may be a slight admission fee to
go to some charitable institution.
The Thunderbirds are priming
up for the game, and now with
Jim Scott back, they will probably give the colored men a good
Many will recall last year's epic
battle, when the Canadian Championship Thunderbird squad, drew
respect and admiration from the
dark stars. A similar showing this
year may well be an omen of increased success for our cellar place
cagers in this year's league.
Scott Boosts Cagers
New Life For 'Birds
•   THERE IS A NOTED change in the playing of the
Thunderbird basketball team following the arrival of Jim
Scott who has been warming a
University bus seat up to now,
not only helps the team by his
individual starring on the court,
but also by his general bolstering
of our team morale.
Jim will help greatly in the recovery    of    rebounds    which    his
smaller teammates have been having trouble with, and his ability
to shoot well with either hand
makes him our perfect left forward.
Harry Kermode, new this season to senior company, has greatly improved of late, and in recent
practices his faking and improved
shooting leaves little to be desired.
With Jo Ryan and Art Barton
now in top shape, Scott will form
the third of last year's wonder
team back on the hardwood, and
great things are expected of the
team in this year's court battles.
day night. There is room for
more members during the spring
term. Fees are $2.50 for the remainder of the year, with shuttles supplied. Play is on Monday
and Wednesday nights at 8 o'clock.
Teams will be continued in the
leagues, and President DeBeck has
announced that a scrambles night
will be held early in February
with fancy costumes, food, etc.
Everybody  invited.
Babes Plan
Big Doings
• SOMETHING NEW, something
talked about for a long time
has appeared on the campus —
indoor archery. Lessons or practice
periods can be arranged at Miss
Moore's office.
Intratnurals are in full swing
again with the schedules for the
term posted in the gym. Volley
ball starts on Monday at 12:30 with
First Year playing Education, and
Fourth year playing Second Year,
At 1:00 the Nurses will take the
floor against the Commerce girls,
and Education will play its second game against the Aggies.
On Tuesday Education and Commerce play badminton, and First
and Third year Arts play Pinij
A basket ball team bent on revenge will meet Nelsons at 9:00
on Friday at the Y.W.C.A. gym.
In the last encounter Varsity was
soundly trounced by a score of
32-11. That was quite a while ago,
in fact it was Varsity's first game
of the season. Since then the team
— it could hardly be called a team
at that time—ha3 improved greatly
under the able coaching of Bob
Osborne. The 3core will be reversed this time — we hope.
The Hockey Club will hold a
meeting in Arts 102 on Monday at
12:30. Old man weather won't let
the girls practice or play on ice
these days, but they can always
afford to learn a little strategy.

CONGRATS to Hugh (Dusty) Rhodes. Dusty, soph
athletic rep, took second place honours in -the class 'B' ski
jumping tourney held on Hollyburn Sunday. Dusty lept 79
feet only outhopped by 3 by winner Dave Swanson.
SHOCKING; The Campus was shocked yesterday to
see the usually staid Council members and some of their
ubiquitous friends playing a merry game of Fox and Geese
in the new fallen snow near the gym. Players were no doubt
getting in shape to be massacred at the Pub-Council game
which they have thus far shirked.
GOODLOOKING: Phil Fitz-James, Rowing club
prexy, claims the best scull crew in years. He is dreamily
wishing for contests with Oregon and Washington now that
such new heavyweights as stroke John Slater, Lionel
Fournier, Jack Zabinsky, and Hank Sweatman have been
added to the squad.
HAPPY: The Thunderbirds and yours truly are glad
to welcome Jim Scott back to the fold. We understand he's
really pulling the team together. . . . good luck boys.
UNHAPPY: Resulting from a misunderstanding the
senior 'B' cagers have been kicked out of the Community
league. The boys after writing a letter, failed to turn up
for a scheduled game during the Christmas holidays ....
tough luck boys.

one condition; that all players take night training from
now till the end of the year", Evann Davies told the UBYSSEY yesterday following interviews with President Klinck
and Colonel Shrum.
Another condition may be, Dav-        ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
ies suggested, whether or not the
team will  be allowed to v^e the
Stadium for its two home game3.
The first ruling comes as a result of a minute passed by the
student Council to the effect that
no extramural sport shall be main-
alned that interferes with the military training program.
Colonel Shrum has ruled that no
players will be allowed to make
up time for parades missed, but
that they must parade at night all
the rest of the year or no aall.
The next game is slated to be
played on January 17, when we
entertain Victoria. If all goes well,
