No. 38
CHANCELLOR AGAIN
Chancellor R. E. MoKeohnle, M.D.C.M., LL.D., F.A.C.S. (front
row right), will lead congregational processions still, following his
re-election Wednesday as Chancellor of the University of British
Columbia.   His duties in offlce continue for a three-year period.
On April 4, 1918, Dr. R. E. McKechnie was elected Chancellor
and this year is entering his eighth year in that offlce,
"Cartooning
As Carmer"
By Booth*
The first consideration tn newspaper cartooning Is to make sure
how far you're going to go, according to the Dally Provlnoe cartoonist,
Jaok Booths, who spoke to a crowd-
ad house In Applied Solenoe 100 at
noon Tuesday. The leoture was sponsored by tbe A.M.U.S. Vocational
Outdance series.
"In my Job, If I happen to make
a big advertiser look like a simpleton, I'm liable to get the baok of my
neok slapped," Mr. Boothe told his
audience.
Jaok's interesting talk was illustrated by a series of quick sketches,
and hilariously applauded.
HITLER HARD
* A oaxloature of Adolf Hitler, who
Is   a   "living   caricature"   is   a   very
hard job, Boothe said, and proceeded
to draw one that brought roars from
his audienoe.
Benito   Mussolini,    on   the   other
fc       hand,  is  a  simple  subjeot,  and  has
%      a mouth that oould be stretched out
halt a blook, and still look like Mussolini.
Mr.   Boothe   pointed   out   some
Striking facial similarities between
n Duoe and R. B. Bennett.
"The Italian's jutting 'first chin' is
fully made  up  for by Mr.  Bonnet's
seoond," the cartoonist added.
"Many caricatures of Prime Minister Chamberlain are rather unkind.
He lends himself perhaps too well
to thla type of art," he said.
CIVIC FEATURES
The able artist pointed out that
the ex-mayor McOeer of Vancouver
had a big and rather bulbous nose
"fastened to a rather aotive mouth."
On   the   other   hand,   Mayor   J.
Lyle Telford haa nothing unusual
about hla features except his wild
hair and a pair of glasses.
Of Darrell Braldwood, Mr. Boothe
remarked that "he  has a nose that
Is not quite normal, and we can do
something with it." He drew a few
lines, and then remarked*, sotto voce,
"I think I did."
So, evidently, did Mr. Braldwood,
who in turn demanded that the cartoonist do a self-portrait. Mr. Boothe
complied, then fled the room like a
hunted hare.
D. McDERMOTT HEADS
MUSICAL SOCIETY
Wednesday, Dorek MoDermott,
popular second year student was
elected president of the Musioal
Sooiety by acclamation.
Derek, who Is a pupil of Gideon
Hicks, and hope* to make muslo
his life's work, will be remembered
for his part In "Serenade," as
Romero, the bandit chief.
Although this Is only his flrst
year with the Musical Sooiety, he
haa been very aotlve.

fundamental to successful Counoil

(Sgd.)    Darrell  Braldwood
JOHN PEARSON

Increased pressure must be brought

avoid further limitation.

OTTAWA. Ont, Maroh 7 (CUP)—
Student aid through tha Youth Training Program will be the Federal
Government's only immediate step
towards a system of national scholarships, according to the Honorable
Norman Rogers, Minister of Labou.
Receiving a delegation of 10 students yesterday morning, Rogers declared: "I would not encourage you
lo think that your proposed system
o* Federal scholarships will be car-
tied out." He added tbat any student aid carried out under the youth
training program would be undertaken as an unemployment measure
and not purely for educational reasons.
The Minister of Labor did not advise further representation to the
Oovernment. "I question," he said,
"the wisdom • of applying mass pressure on behalf of a proposal that has
been presented to the Oovernment.
It muat now stand or fall on ita own
merits." Already copies of a brief
in favor of national scholarships have
been placed in the hands ot the premiers and the ministers of education in the various provinces.
Exchanges Suggested
While admitting the value and need
of scholarships the Minister pointed
to the division of financial responsibility between the Federal and Provincial Governments. Federal aid
In thla matter would lead to other
requests and so Is unlikely until there
is a dearer definition of the Government's real responsibility. The policy
of grants and aid has already
brought the Oovernment into compilations with the provinces, and the
Federal Houae today bears 7B per
cent of the cost of old age pensions
whioh it originally planned merely as
an aid, he said.
Rogers agreed that there Is a definite trend towards state scholarships but expressed the fear that
suoh might result in municipalities
and individuals making their contributions elsewhere. A member of the
delegation pointed out, however, the
lack ot proper distribution between
existing awards. The University of
Toronto, for Instance, offers numerous scholarships but Quebec universities and those in the West have
very few, Rogers suggested that the
universities themselves might do
more by providing exchange scholarships und such work as laboratory
asslstanshlps.
Limited Aid Proposed
The Government's proposed scheme
wtll provide help to needy students
but on a limited scale. The Students
Aid Project, as lt will be called, will
necessitate the setting up of an administrative group in each provlnoe.
Grants will be made broadly on the
basis of population but with consideration being given to special needs.
That part which is not taken up by
a particular province will be redistributed or may be spent within the
province by the Dominion Government. F. R. Thompson, supervisor
of the Youth Training Projects, said
that plans will be completed by the
end of this month.
Questioned by the CUP yesterday
afternoon, various Members of Parliament declared themselves in favor of national scholarships and
urged   the  continuation   by  students

McGiil For
Beatty Plan
The proposed unification of the
C.N.R and C.P.R- as outlined ln the
Beatty plan sponsored by Conservative leader Don McOlll on Monday's
meeting of the P.D.C. met wtth vigorous opposition of the combined
Liberal and Progressive forces.
Premier   McOlll   claimed   that
unnecessary    duplication   and   expense would be removed under the
scheme
This was discounted by the Liberal
. eader, Bernard Reed, who observed
that the C.P.R. Interests would obtain a firmer grip on the transportation monopoly in Canada to the detriment of the Canadian public.

discussion was adjourned until next

<%€<&€jCu*s FORD V-8
rTlHERE are mighty good reasons why the
De Luxe Ford V-8 is a popular family car.
For one thing, there's plenty of room inside
—for Mr. Canada, Mrs. Canada, Miss Canada
and Junior (with room to spare for visiting
uncles and aunts). And there's a luggage
compartment more than equal to family
vacation-trip needs. For another thing, the
entire family will take real pride in this car's
smart appearance ... its streamlined beauty
and richly upholstered interior. They'll
like the deep-down comfort and remarkable
quiet which characterize this car's "ride".
But most of all, perhaps, they'll like the
Ford V-8's low price and surprising economy.
That brilliant V-8 engine squeezes extra
miles out of every gallon of gasoline! In fact,
owners from every province report averages
of 22 to 27 miles per gallon of gasoline!

FROSH MEET
EX-BRITANNIA
IN CROOSHUL
The Frosh Rugby team, only oval-
sllnging outfit on the campus still ln
the flght for some laurels for the
Alma What's-her-name, make their
second-half bid for recognition when
they take on an aggressive Ex-Brl-
tannla outfit, winners of the seoond
section, ln the seoond half of the
Second Division Rugby League. One
second and we'll tell more.
All year the Freshmen have battled against their more famous brothers, Varsity and U.B.C, ln a fight
for headlines. Now they can return
the hoss-laughs with a vengeance,
but not in the direction of the Ex-
Britannia boys, who happen to be
one of the most powerful teams ln
the loop.
Oame time tomorrow will be set
for 2.15 at Brookton Point and the
victors will be in line for a crack at
Marpole who topped the first-half
of the schedule. From here, the
victors will taokle an Island team,
probably from Viotorla.
DARK DIPLOMACY.
The Frosh reputedly ran Into some
diplomatic distress Just before the
game last Saturday when they downed Arts Olub 8-0. It seems that with
the play-offs In sight. Coach Stan
Farquharson suggested to team manager Jimmy Stinson that several
weaker spots ln the Frosh line of
attack be strengthened by the cream
of the Varsity Thirds. The Thirds
had finished their schedule and'ware
quite willing to act as stop-gaps.
Stinson was loath, however, to assume this authority despite the fact,
that the Frosh were, at that time,
conceded little chance of making the
Island Jaunt. The boys voted on the
question, and the decision now rests
that Thirds will be used only as
spares and not as regulars. For which
we congratulate the Frosh.
The following men will be In the
line-up tomorrow for the big clash:
Clement, Pyle, Bingham, Fleming,
Baldwin, Johnson, Orey, Wallace,
Physlok, Morrow, Wood, Askew,
Williamson, Neil, McLeod. Oame
time:  2.15 at Brookton Point.
SOCCERMEN TAKE ON
KERRISDALESATURDAY
With at least four games to go,
including a gala trip to Seattle, the
Varsity soccermen, fresh from a week
of Intensive practice and a well-
remembered win over South Vanoouver, will take on Kerrisdale at Kerrisdale Park Saturday.
Onoe again Manager Dick Clark
reports that he will have a full and
reliable lineup, probably the same
one as defeated South Van two weeks
ago. There ls some doubt, however,
whether goalie Dennis Leong will be
in strip for the rest of the season.
GOODY   OOODY.
The Kerrisdale team Is three points
upon the collegians in the league
standings with 12 points, and last
week defeated South Vanoouver, Just
as Varsity had done the week previous. That might seem a bit complex
to the student brain, and particularly
to that of a scienceman, but In plain
language it ls a subtle build-up to
the fact that tomorrow's encounter
should be a battle royal.
The game will go on at 2.30 and
you  are  cordially  invited   to  attend.

THREE STRAIGHT.
Varsity's 16-0 win over New Westminster last Saturday rang down the
curtain on another rugger semester.
Besides packing away the old shoes
and any confiscated sweaters which
A.M.S. might have overlooked, the
pachyderms of the gridiron took the
Miller Oup home to roost with them,
so the ancient bit of silverware rests
ln the scheduled niche of the library
for the third consecutive year. It appears highly unlikely that there will
be any competition for the Tlsdall
Oup so the Blue and Oold must
stand content, with their one piece of
metalware, unless the Frosh should
cop the seoond division orown.
HOT STUFF!!
All ln all It has been a very successful season despite the loss of the
MoKeohnle Trophy. The Varsity
team established a new scoring record both for a single game and for
a season's total. In winning the local
championship the studes overoame
the injury Jinx which threatened
I hem throughout the year. The Point
Orey lads have also the consolation
of having toppled the provincial
ohamps, to wit, the Viotorla Reps on
the memorable Invasion battle.
Oreat credit is due to A. B. Oarey
who has devoted so much tune and
energy ln welding the university
squads Into championship contenders.
And If you think his pioklng of a
team Is soft touoh. then consider this
bit of Info*. No less than 36 men
played on the first team at one tlipe
or another during the 18-game season.
STRONG MEN.
Tod Tremblay and Tom Robson
were the only men to play ln all 18
encounters, two more than Leggat,
Ted McPhee and Harmer who participated ln 89 per oent. .of the games.
Mattu, Lang, Mason and Harrison
were the next most regular attend
ants at the Saturday afternoon
brawls with 15, 14 and a brace of 13s
apiece.
Honorable mention should drape1
the shoulders ot managers Bill Calder and BUI Oross for their untiring efforts with the tape, bottles,
flags and other managerial bric-a-
brac.
Now that the season ls finished
the question of awards arises. Foremost on the list ls the problem of the
injured player. Should he be eligible
for a Block? We cite the case of
Wilson Oollege, one of the best baokfleld men ever to perform on our local 'swards. "Bill" has had the misfortune to receive injuries whloh
rendered him hors-de-oombat early
in season for the past three years.
The set-up for next year appears
to be bright with most of the first
fifteen returning and a wealth of
material coming up from the lower
divisions.
FROSH OOOD.
Compliments should be floating
freely over heads ot our Frosh squad
which has shown ao muoh spirit
throughout the year, as a rule the
seconds fade into dismal oblivion on
completion of half the schedule, but
lt appears that Joe Frosh Is Just
starting to go places.
Next season the league will probably consist of six teams thus eliminating the possibilities of any weak
sisters. We predict two Varsity teams,
Rowing Olub, Meralomas, North
Shore and possibly the Orads.
So we bid another rugby team
good-bye and offer to Skipper Strat
Leggat the premier laurel wreath for
a perfect Job of Inspiring his cohorts
to bigger and better deeds.
