At Least We're Alive
The following is an article clipped
from the editorial columns ofthe Manitoban. The writer does not sign his
name, however, the editor of the Mani-
toban describes him as one of the most
"Dynamic" individuals on the campus.
I have seen sick students. Students that
are sick on campuses from McGill to UBC.
Some were students that could ably fill
cheering sections of football games, some
were cultured lions of society, some were in
fraternities that were so interested in campus politics they completely looked after
everything from the choice of prexy to every
assistant business manager. Some of these
campuses had good newspapers, which discussed student affairs, and had joke columns.
These students were real students in the
eyes of some of the members of our campus,
in fact they were perfect but for one tragic
flaw, they were dead from the shoulders up.
The first impressions of UBC were that
it was mid-Victorian. However, I was speedily corrected by student leaders, who informed me their newspaper last term had
several articles on sex. That is on what
they base their claim to progressiveness. The
Manitoban has never feared to discuss party
politics because it might then lose its provincial grant, as has the UBYSSEY. There
the parliamentary forums must contain nothing of a provincial nature. Our Manitoban
discusses anything o a vital nature, and does
not ilmit itself as does the UBYSSEY to matters that would not arouse controversy.
In summing up, we find the UBC has a
dead student body, whereas we have at
least some signs of life.
At the University of Manitoba, a man
doesn't need a tuxedo to debate. To become
a leader on our campus you need ability,
not social background. To write a letter to
the editor of the Mantoban you need to discuss something vital, not "whether corsages
should be worn."
It is true all our student body is not
healthy, but nevertheless it is true we do
have a small element that is progressive,
alive and express themselves. But in all the
other Canadian campuses we have seen they
haven't that small element. The conditions
that have allowed this element to develop
are present on our campus and we should
see they continue.
What the University of Manitoba has
tried to do is make itself of vital social significance to the community. Our campus has
tried to integrate itself into the community
and has not remained insular and isolated.
The other campuses we have seen exist as
in a vacuum, they are not vital, they are
parasites upon, the people.
But what we have done, and it
stands out when you look back over all the
other campuses, is that we have integrated
ourselves in the life of the community.
Can You Prove It?
We reprint, in part, the above Manitoban editorial not in a spirit of horrified indignation, but rather to show the students of
UBC just how backward .we really are compared to the human dynamos on tiie campus
of the U. of Manitoba.
It must be obvious to the students on
this campus what truths are contained in the
Manitoba article. Here at UBC the octopus
of fraternity organization has snared complete control of an annual function which
nets two thousand dollars yearly for a vicious organization called the Canadian Red
Cross. While the barefoot boys from the
land of Bracken are struggling to aid their
legislature in the settling of provincial problems, our capitalist class (over 80% of whom
work for their fees) are raising money (six
thousand dollars last year) to aid in the war.
Surely this student paralysis must come to
an end.
The great courage of the Manitoban
editors and forumites, who attack the legislatures in carefree manner, fills us with awe.
We think of our annual battles with Mrs.
Steeves and other M.L.A.'s which come up
as regularly as the University budget. We
think of one of last year's columnists attacking the Lieut-Governor's speech to the alumnae. We think of our forumites happily sinking their teeth into various bits of controversial legislation at their Mock Parliament.
We think of one of our professor's bitter remarks on the failure of the Rowell-Sirois
report, which the then Premier of this province helped to scuttle. We think of the
UBYSSEY's answer to the, charges of "draft-
dodger", which appeared in the local press
last fall and the subsequent stoppage of such
criticism. Then we think of progressive-minded Manitoban's articles (clipped from the
McGill daily) on French Canada and we see
that we are long dead and decaying.
We take shelter behind the fact that
some years ago we decided that a university
newspaper should be just that. We have our
forums, our social problems clubs, and other
groups where we can go to discuss any problem dear to our hearts. If anyone still feels
the urge to open the second front by writing
to the editor of the UBYSSEY, the way is
clear, all he has to do is write. We set out to
cover campus affairs and supply campus
news, our idea is that world events can be
taken care of in other fields. For the issue of
February 12 we carried 23 news stories to
the Manitoban's eleven. Of course the human dynamos are undoubtedly too busy
scrambling to discussion groups to take time
out to make news.
For. the past two years our McGoun
Cup lads have smeared Manitoba's serious
young men by shutting them right out of
the team debate. Undoubtedly it was the
natty tuxedos our boys wore, and not their
oratorical ability.
So in our Mid-Victorian manner we
sluff along, raising money for the war, winning debates, taking slugs at the legislature
and anyone else that we have a bone to pick
with, writing on university matters that do
concern our students and which are the
logical matters for a university newspaper
to discuss. How dull we are compared to the
live-wire kids from the Manitoba campus,
who devote themselves whole-heartedly to
creating a Brave New World.
In summing up we find the U. of M. has
an inferiority complex and are guilty of rationalizing to bolster themselves.
UBC! Wake up and LIVE!

e THERE SEEMS to exist on the
campus at present a rather
apathetic attitude toward one of
the most intriguing of all games
involving mental skill, The reference of course is to the game of
bridge, careful analysis of which
reveals that it is one of the most
"brain-stimulating" pastimes in
our modern "round of affairs."
It is widely acknowledged In the
post campus world both as an entry Into and desirable part of social
life itself, and as a social concomitant of business life. In this latter respect it is especially important as a basis for meeting and
furthering acquaintances with
whom It ls desirable to establish
and maintain friendly relationships.
It seems lamentable in view of
its thought-provoking qualities
that it does remain at present only
a pastime indulged in by so pitifully few. A rougn estimate of
the number of players on the
campus reveals that, generously
speaking, about five per cent of
the student-body play, or play at
bridge, and that only a small portion of this group play the game
at all well.
have been at work to bring
about this state of affairs here it
is difficult to discover. However,
those who do frequently indulge
in the game have come to be regarded as "bridge-fiends," a term
which at present conotes Ideas of
gambling, lecture-skipping, and
a general lethargic attitude to all
scholastic work in general. While
this in a very small part may bo
true, In the large majority of cases
the inferences are unfounded.
However, it is the prevalent attitude, and as such succesfully
balks any Interest that might be
shown by the few faculty members, brings a frown to the collective brow of the discipline
committee, and scares the majority
of the potential players. Although
it may seem a radical view to advance ,yet the writer thinks it not
untenable that bridge be embodied
in some manner as an extra-unit
course on the campus. Many of the
colleges to the south of the line,
recognizing the value of bridge,
both during and after college life,
have already taken just such a
step, and have noted with satisfaction its favorable reception.

'17 Co-ed Prexy In Trust
• BROUGHT TO MIND by the recent campus elections
when a woman ran for election as President of the AMS,
we recall the only time a woman has headed the Students'
Council. In 1917 the late Miss Norah Coy, Arts 18, was
The fact that Miss Coy's election
would probably make history for
a long time to come was not for-
seen In the Vblcee publications of
that time, for the only mention of
her is when she spoke a few words
to the freshettes in October on behalf of the Alma Mater. Dr. and
Mrs. Wesbrook were also there.
The election campaign is completely ignored, but the Ubicee was
strictly a literary publication then.
After Norah Coy's early death in
December of 1921, her friends established a memorial fund for the
purchase of books and documents
relating to Canadian history, the
field Miss Coy specialized in.
Known as the Norah Coy Memorial Collection, a considerable
number of volumes have been
placed in the library, but the sum
of $100 was placed in a trust fund
for 100 years when the capital and
interest will be used as the AMS
sees fit, with reference to the original purpose of the fund.
Collection of the fund was made

'Mile Of Pennies' Drive
Arrangements Ready
e   THE BIGGEST and most concentrated drive of the War
Aid Council for the spring term will get under way Monday, February 22, when the students will return to find the
names of their faculties chalked out in the quad.
At Toronto
• TORONTO, Feb. 18—
(CUP)—A University
Naval Training Division (U
NTD), from which university men may join the RCNV
R in the same way as they
may join it through other
channels, is to be established
immediately at the University of Toronto.
The U.N.T.D. will not be speclfl-
cally an officer's training course,
but those who enrolled in the
University Division will have the
same chances for appointments to
commissions as any other men m
the Naval Reserve.
At present only those who signify their intention of Tnrolling
for active service with the RCNV
R before the opening ot the next
'session; and those who have not
enlisted during the present session
In either the COTC or the
UATC will be taken.
It has been agreed that for the
next session enrolment in the Division shall be limited to those
male students who are prepared
to go on active service with the
RCNVR upon leaving University.
The Division at Toronto will be
a part of the complement of H
M.C.S. York, and under the direction of the York's Commanding
Similar Divisions are projected
for Queen's McGill and Western
University. Nothing definite if
proposed for UBC, but it ls expected that something will be done
about the establishment of a similar division here soon.
Early Monday morning, the students will find the spacss which
they are to fill laid out and waiting for their pennies. Students
are requested to lay them down
side by side and to keep them together as much as possible. At
the end of each day the pennies
will be gathered and the space
they covered shaded In with an appropriate color. The next day, tho
students will carry on from where
they left off.
Larger coins may be exchanged
for pennies at the quad box office
at any time during the day. In
order to avoid strife, insofar as
that is possible, the Arts and Aggie projects will be on the north
side of thc signboard and those
of the Engineers and the Commerce Club on the south side.
In order to accomodate those
who would rather gamble tlian
give, Marry Glover has arranged
a penny-extracting system much
the same as the "Skin Game,"
that was popular last year. It Is
strictly a game of skill, and de*
pends on your ability to toss a
penny into one of the jars or bottles on the lower level.
The Mamook auction is scheduled for Tuesday noon when Murdo
McKenzie, club prexy will turn
auctioneer in the Interests of the
Red Cross. "Guthrie Meek in the
Army," the latest of the Jabez
hits to come to the campus, will be
presented by the Players' Club
at noon on Thursday. Norm
Campbell will play the title role.
The admission charge is ten cents.
"This drive is in the interests of
a very worthy cause, and is necessary to relieve the War Aid Council and the students of their obligations in connection with the
ambulance which was promised to
the Red Cross before Christmas.
The full co-operation of all students will be required to put this
drive over the top. Please do your
part." This is the statement made
by Harry Curran, chairman of the
committee In charge of the drive.
The other members of the committee are Gordie Rogers, Jim

For each succeeding quarter, they

opposite. They took 14 shots in

2 FOR 22
In that quarter, UBC attempted
22 shots, of which 2 found their
way into the basket. Both these figures are lesser Instead of greater
than their counterparts in the
third quarter. The reason for this
is at once apparent to anyone who
saw the game or played in it.
Stacys started with a rush in
the fourth quarter, to some within one point of the Thunderlrds.
At that point, things began to look
a little precarious for our boys,
but they restored themselves to a
position of relative security in the
eyes of their supporters by sinking a battleship to go two points
up on the Shoemen.
And then, Sykes went off on
foul. Ths was quite i blow, as
"Si" had proved quite an asset,
especially on rebounds. He was
replaced by Bakken, however,
and things didn't look too bad.
UBC was still ahead.
Then catastrophe No. 2 happened.    Sandy   Robertson   had   four
fouls called on him. Sandy claims
that he had only three and that
'he knew this .because he always
counted his personals. However,
Justice is often blind, and she
seemed so that night.
Robertson's loss proved to be the
turning-point of the game. He
had played tho whole game and
was easily the best man on the
floor, particularly, because he had
performed the near-impossible
feat of holding league-leading
point-getter, Bill Anderson, to n
cero count.
After Sandy left the floor, Anderson celebrated his new-found
freedom, by scoring four points
which act sealed UBCs fate.
Other leaders In the nefarious
fourth-stanza work of the Shoe-
men were Long John Purves, Don
Freeman and Rann Matthison.
Art Barton and Sandy Robertson starred defensively for the
Thunderbirds, while Harry Franklin led the club on the offense.

ball club in the pinches, though.
Before Christmas .although the
team seemed to have plenty of
talent, the Frosh boys weren't able
to look like a well-meshed outfit.
They got a bad start in tho league
by dropping 4 of their first 6
games, winning only against Gregory-Price and Sparlings.
During the Xmas holidays, the
team travelled to Victoria for a
game with Victoria College. The
College managed to squeeze out a
narrow 29-25 win In overtime.
When the league began again hi
the new year, they were able to
win threo of their remaining
games, two of which were against
Calders and Varsity Int. A, both
of whom had defeated them in
previous meetings.
By the end of the schedule Frosh
had won 5 and lost 5, and were
In possession of third place in the
league. They were, therefore, in
the playoffs, but had the dubious
honour of meeting the undefeated
Higbies in the semi-finals.
In the first playoff encounter,
the Frosh dropped a close one to
Ted Milton's crew by four points
Last Tuesday the Frosh
gave a real exhibition of what a
fighting team can do, but were defeated by,a superior team.
The team this year has many
outside players on the lineup.
From West Van. are Bill Hill and
Vic Vaughan. The two Victoria
men are Don Anderson and Al
Knmloopn sent down Tony Greer
and Walt Wascylkow, and from
Pentlcton came Al Kenyon. Local
members of the squad are Jim
Teevan and Jack "Phoebe" Cllmle.
Towards the end of the season
Mart Martin and Don Petrie, both
of Calder fame, joined the team.
Dave Moyls served as manager for
the outfit with Art Johnson coaching the boys.
A question still to be decided is
the relative abilities of the two
Varsity Int. A teams. Art Johnson claims the Frosh arc superior,
but Demetrie Elefthery, coach of
the other Int. A squad, feels that
his team .which plays a different
style of ball than the Frosh, are
equal In every respect. The latter
team finished fourth in the league
and were fortunate in the playoffs
of being matched with a weaker
outfit than the Frosh.
Perhaps in a few weeks' time a
rubber game can be arranged between these two teams as they
have each beaten each other, once.
Co-eds Finish Ahead In
Sen. B Basketball League
• THE CO-EDS ended the
regular basketball season
in first place last Tuesday
night at John Oliver Gym
when they defeated Boeings
27-25. Varsity will now
tangle with either Boeings or
Normal in the first game of
the semi-finals next Wednesday. This series will be the
best two games out of three.
If Varsity wins the finals
they will not only be city
champions but also provincial title holders.
The game started out rather
slowly Tuesday with Varsity leading 4-0 at the quarter. Pauline
Greer opened the scoring for the
blue and gold team with a pivot
Varsity began to roll in the next
period with Pauline again leading
the scoring parade. However Boeings also found their shooting eye
as they tallied nine points but they
still couldn't catch the co-eds. The
score at half time was 16-9 in favor
of Varsity.
In the third period Varsity began
to show signs of falling apart but
managed to hold onto a two-point
lead at three-quarter time. In the
last quarter Boeinp tied the score
but the co-eds moved ahead once
more. With about four minutes to
full time Varsity held a one-point
lead when Eileen McKillop sank
one from the left side of the court.
Norma Ford repeated with a basket from the right hand corner to
bring the score to 27 to 22. Boeings
countered with a field basket and a
foul shot. Full time score was
The game developed into a mad
scramble more than once as both
teams fought for possession of the
ball. In one instance five toss-ups
were required before moving the
ball from one spot as both teams
fought for the ball.
Pauline Greer was top scorer for
the blue and gold with tea points;
followed by Eileen McKillop with
seven. Pauline is one of the leading scorers in the league.
Pauline Greer 10, Eileen McKillop 7, Norma Ford 6, Betty Walton

has been in progress for the entire

be a dismal end it will not be because of lack of condition.
Birds Up
The Thunderbirds have had their
ups and downs this season, but
with, a very rigorous tempo to be
kept up for the next few weeks
the squad is expected to get the
feci of the sod under their feet
that will not long be forgotten.
The nurslings of Maury McPhee
have shown that unusual habit this
season of playing a master game
when their backs have been to the
wall and fooling the rest of the
time. They have quit their fooling
now to all reports and are really
going to ground the Air Force.
The line-up that will face the
This is the first of the Tisdale
Cup games. Therefore, the rugger
members feel that it is imperative
a very good start is made so that
they will not have to fight their
way from the bottom up. This is
the case of tht McKechnie Cup
games and the boys do not like tht
unfavourable odds put up against
them because of an off day whea
they met Vancouver Rep some
time ago.
And Down
Air Force remains the same aa the
one that went over to Victoria a
month ago.

Wood's time was 1.45:6, this time
