•   Old-World  modesty marked  the  statements of all six  candidates  for
the title of junior Prom Queen as near-royalty masked personal feelings in gracious, retlclent submission to the as-yet-unknown choice of the
Junior Class.
Smiles,  blushes,  and  curl-tossing  greeted  Ubyssey scouts who asked
how they felt about the event.    In no case did any  candidate predict a

Several young men, however — adept at poster-making — basked in
warm, arch, queenly smiles.
Main worry of all regal aspirants, it became apparent, revolved
around the reception which males would accord to costumes worn at the
Pep-Meeting. Informed that evening-dresses, not shorts, would be featured, Ubyssey's reporter hastened to assure candidates that males would

A wave of resentment against the Student council  swept   across   the  campus   Monday
with the news that Sutherland Home, accountant to the Alma Mater Society for the past nine
years had announced his intention of resigning.
The resignation came as a distinct shock to undergraduates and graduates alike, most
of whom received their first intimation Monday, despite the fact that advertisements for a
new acocuntant had appeared in downtown papers.
Mr. Home stated that he could not manage an office of this size without some authority as business manager.    This authority was  not  given.
Until     Monday,     news     of    Mr.
Horn's impending resignation was
kept from the main part of the
student body and the press. When
the news k.aked out It aroused a
storm of protest anions leading
undergraduates and alumni who
had worked with Mr. Horn during   his   tenure   of   office.
Prominent students on the cam-
1. ..s, aud former members of the
council, Interviewed by the Ubyssey Monday wc-.v. unstinting in
their praise of Mr. Horn and
criticized the present council for
bringing   about   his   resignation.
Council Negligence
"Harry Lumsden Is leading thc
council In undoing all the work
and nil the planning that previous
councils have built up In tlio past,"
was the bitter comment of Joe Rita,
secretary of the 1039-40 athletic
directorate. "Thero have been good
and bad councils but never hus
thero been such an utterly negligent council. Mr. Horn has been
tho continuity between councils.
He has breathed the spirit of the
Almn Muter socloty Into each Incoming council. His loss Is Irretrievable."
My experience with Mr. Horn
proved that he was as easy and
amicable to get along with as possible," said Jay Gould, 1936-37 A.
M.S. president. "If there was any
diliculty in the relations between
Mr. Horn and stnudent council I
would say It lies with the Council.
"Students don't realize how
necessary it is for there to be some
continuity from one council to another. They don't realize how
little they know—how lucky they
ate to have a man who takes a
personal   interest   in   tlveir   society.
A.M.S. Hurt
"Tho Almn Mater Society Is being hurt by losing one of the king
pins of'tho business. Up till now
tho student council has had more

he said. "There is no human method cf estimating tho service he

(Continued   in  column  five)
Serious Error
Mr. Horn, manager of the Alma Mater offices, who has
done perhaps more than anyone else toward the building up
of student government on this campus, has offered his resignation to the Student Council and finds it impossible to
reconsider his attitude.
His reason is thot under present conditions, no one can
possibly run the Alma Mater offices as an accountant. The
man in charge must have the authority of a business manager in order to accept the responsibilities of such a position.
Such authority has not been granted him this year as it
was in former years so that he has found it necessary to
The Council deserves tho severest censure for allowing
such a situation to arise. Some members of the Council knew,
although no one else on the campus did, that there was
trouble, and that the trouble was their own fault; yet they
took no action whatsoever to remedy the situation. What
was done merely aggravated It.
Student Councils have for a number of years come
to depend upon their business manager to such an extent
that they will find it impossible to do without him.. He
has been far more than accountant ever since he came to
the University. He has been the connecting link between
Student Council from one year to another and has kept a
definite policy in view—the strengthening of student government on this campus. Losing him, we have lost one of the
mainstays of student government on the campus. It would
have been very difficult without him to keep a project moving over a period of years, such as the building of Brock
Hall. Without him, the achievements of student government
would not have been so successful as they have been.
Through his sound management of student finance and
his advice to succeeding treasurers, the Administration of
the University has felt it possible to entrust the Students'
Councl with increasing responsibilities.
Now that Mr. Home's leaving, the Council faces a grave
situation. An ordinary accountant inexperienced in the
numberless details of the work cannot possibly replace him.
Without exceptional leadership in the following Councils for
the next few years, affairs may quite possibly reach such a
state that the Administration will be forced to take over what
is left of student government. They have made a beginning
already without more than a protest from Council.
Some might be interested to know that an advertisement for a man to replace Mr. Horn appeared in the Daily
Province and in the Vancouver Sun last week before Mr.
Horn's resignation came ap before Council meeting last night,
and without the knowledge of most of the Council.
ing unstintingly of his time and
energy to the Alma Mater Society.
In his own unassuming way he
haa been the one man who could
provldo each new council with the
knowledge of what has gone before.
"I have often seen him save the
A.M.S. from making decisions that
would have been unwise. He was
bigger than all councils, yet never
forced himself on any of them.
The fact that any council should
allow him to leave is hard to understand."
Praising Mr. Horn as "a man
whoso advice is to be respected
and followed," former Ubyssey Editor Kemp Edmonds asserted that
"on the surface it appears that Mr.
Horn's resignation amounts to a
serious condemnation of the way
student council is carrying on business."
"I think that council has been
completely Incompetent throughout the year," charged Evan ap
Roberts, Scienceman, who was on
tho council from 1939-40. "Every
Ideal and achievement that has
been accomplished by past councils thoy have overthrown. They
have lost the most valuable and
Indlspenslble man they could ever
have had. His resignation opens
tho way to administration gaining
control of student government. It
reflects the entire Incompetence of
the council."
"The members of the present
council used poor judgement to
bring this on," declared Fred Bolton, 1939-40 president of the U.B.C.
alumni association. "I can't help*
but feel that any action which
caused his resignation was pretty
serious. You'll have a very difficult time getting on without Mr.
"He can save council so much
money each year, that the next
council will now have difficulty in
making the ends of the budget
"Mr. Horn is the only continuity student councils have had
frem year to year," said Carson McOulre, president of the 1938-39 student council. "His experience is
necessary for student government
to carry on. It. is a serious loss to
the A.M.S. Without a man of his
qualifications Administration is
bound to havo more to say In
student   affairs."
Comment    of    Lester    Sugarinan,
business   manager   of   the   Player's
Club, was terse and to the point:
"I think It's utter ungrateful
foolishness,"  he  declared.
"From my personal < ..perlonee
with Mr. Horn, I'd rather bet on
him." said. Ted McBride, head of
the Junior Class. "It's impossible
to get a man who knows the
background and set-up as he does.

The   Mummery  *.*byjabe**
The ancestors of the misanthrope who
cooked up the idea of the 8:30 lecture must
have been first vice-president in all the better torture chambers of the Middle and
adjoining Ages.
Some oldtimers can remember when
they first instituted the nefarious scheme.
The occasion was marked by a wave of
suicides that carried off 57 students, three
professors, and a janitor who was already
pretty fed up.
The full significance of the ghostly business' doesn't strike home until they come in
to wake you after one of those bright mauve
evenings that seemed so delightful at the
time. Take this morning, for instance. Take
it, and throw it off a wharf.
Freudian Fancy
Flying the Freudian dream-beam, I was
just completing negotiations with a sultan,
who looked exactly like Freddy Wood,
whereby he would trade me 300 slightly-
used wives ln return for a yo-yo and an old
copy of "True Confessions". We were about
to sign the papers when somebody started
jumping up and down on my head, bawling:
" 'Tis time to arise and fly, O Gentle
And they hauled me out onto the floor
like a load of two by three's.
My eyes twanged open, and I lay there,
freshly-exhumed mummy.
"Where are my 300 wives?" I demanded
"They went that way!" they laughed,
beating me with clubs.
I tottered dismally into  the  bathroom.
I tottered dismally out of the bathroom,
and into what looked like a kitchen.
"WeU, well, if it Isn't Jeanie with the
light brown taste in his mouth," they cackled
I fastened one red, malevolent eye on
"Who hung that morbid surrealist painting over the wash-bowl in the bathroom?"
I  rasped  bitterly.
"That's a mirror!" they cried joyfully.
"You look like the bottom of a bird-cage!"
"What's that you're eating," I asked,
staring aghast at the table.
"Dr. Jackson's Dynamite," they answered, paddling their spoons around in the
ungodly goo.    "Have some?"
I tottered back into the bathroom, while
they gleefully chanted "It All Comes Back
To Me, Now."
Beastly Electric
Then there's the battle with the facilities
of the Beastly Electtic. I managed to obtain a seat on the street-car, after a good,
clean fight, but I didn't have it long. One
of those beefy, Woodward's-bound, Hastings
East Matrons revealed a new technique in
forcing male evacuation when she started
stropping a razor alongside my ear.
"Won't you sit down?" I gasped, clutching at my throat, and backing down to the
rear platform, where I had to stand beside
one of those inevitable little Chinese gardeners who show how little they have learned, odoriferously speaking, from the flowers
they have been attending by reeking with a
deadly  persistency.
Another bloody battle for the bus. Riding the,crest of a wave, I was carried down
to the end of the bus, where I was elbowed
onto the treadle of the rear door. The door
opened, somebody shoved, and I was back
on the sidewalk again.
I beetled around to the front door to
squeeze in once more.
"Your twin brother just went in,"
smiled the driver.
"No, that was me," I protested.
His eyes narrowed, and he snarled.
"Yeah? Well you still put in a ticket,
Lecture Lethargy
Finally ensconced in the lecture room,
with the friendly droning of the pedagogic
lullaby filling my ears, I was just on the
point of renewing negotiations with the
sultan, when somebody nudged me.
"Pnnff?" I grunted.
Tha face of the prof, crystallized in the
haze. His mouth was moving. He was talking to me.
"Perhaps the gentleman lying in the
back row will contribute the necessary information," he leered.
"Contribute the necessary information?" I bleated.
"Unless you consider it unworthy of
your intellect," he purred.
"Not at all, not at all," I coughed. "In
my opinion, there is much to be said for
both sides of the question, but I am inclined
to disagree with the text."
There was a snickery silence.
"Thank you so much," bowed the prof.
Then he turned to the rest of the class
to ask:
"Perhaps somebody else can tell me
what time it is?"
8:30 lectures — phooey.

0    The   members  of  Phrateres   executive
hate this columnist with a burning passion. They came into the office one day
last week, waving their knitting neeedles
angrily, and pinned him verbally to the wall.
(They didn't really have knitting needles,
but it sounds good.)
Phrateres, to put it mildly, was considerably perturbed for harsh words meted out
to them concerning their ijon-use of the
Varsity dance orchestra at their co-ed ball.
These two paragraphs last week, threatened,
they said, to undermine the entire structure
of their organization. Little freshettes had
been coming up to them all week with tears
of disillusionment in their big innocent eyes,
to say that they'd never known before what
a wicked organization Phrateres was.
Grounds For Complaint
Phrateres has some grounds for complaint.
There was an error in the column last week,
to wit: The Varsity orchestra did not put
in a formal bid to Phrateres to play at the
Ball. True, Sid Poulton was under a definite impression that Pharateres had been
approached and were discussing the possibility of using his band. Members of his
organization had contacted the club, but he
himself had sent  in no  written  application.
On the other hand, a down town professional band had made an excellent application in writing, stating their prices and
qualifications. So they got the booking and
Sid lost out. The Varsity dance orchestra
should be able to profit by this.
Most campus organizations have business
managers. Those that do not have them
show the need for them. If the Poulcats
want   to   stay   in   business,   they   must   put
themselves on a business basis. They may
play the finest music in the country but unless they have a salseman to sell it for them,
they will make little progress. Think it
over,  Sidney.
Downtown Publicity
In their indignation concerning this
column, Phrateres had several harsh things
to say concerning the Ubyssey in general,
which merits a reply.
They had heard, they said, that the
Ubyssey was responsible for all the bad feeling, down town, concerning the University
and its students. The executive, apparently,
bflieved this.
There is no ounce of truth in this statement, and any thinking student will dismiss
it instantly fro mhis mind. We're not blaming Phrateres for voicing it. They merely
didn't stop to think how ridiculous it sounds.
There's no more truth in this statement
than to say that The Vancouver Daily Province is responsible for all the bad publicity
that Vancouver receives in other parts of
the country.
There is only one agency which makes
bad publicity downtown and that is the students themselves. It is the campus newspaper's duty to report the actions of students, whether good or bad. It is equally
its duty to mete out criticism where it believes criticism is due. If it were to fail in
this duty; if it were to suppress half the
news on the campus and paint the University in a rosy light; if it were to cease all
criticism, then it would be a failure as a
newspaper and it would do well to cease
Remember that next time you blame the
Ubyssey for downtown criticism.

Fruitful Search

I am rather gruff when I call
for the services of my friend and
"Mac," I said, "lt has come to
my atentlon that a graduette at
the University of B.C. is having a
ghastly experience right her. on
our   campus."
It all came out in a post-grad

"When I was in grade four,"
she recounted, "my teacher said
'I want you to collect 100 homonyms and bring them to me.' I

great mon think that a British
Columbia girl, centuries later,
would suffer on account of the
creations of his pen. Right then
I   made   a   big  decision.
"MacGregor," I said, "fruit salad
will have to be serious this week.
There must be no hanky-panky,
fruity folderol. This slunty action
by the girl's teacher must be exposed,   root   and   crop!"
"Righto, "said MacGregor. "But
what  is a  homonym?"
"You find them in Gullible's
Travels,'' I explained. "They look
like horses, only they can speak
fluent English. Tlie teacher in this
girl's grammar class evidently
wanted a hundred of them for
something or other. Come on.

''It's all been like a bad dream."
Miss Sex told me. "My constant

Member of the 1937-38 council, accused th_ present body of a "lackadaisical attitude," pointed out
Mr. Horn was the binding tie

his resignation might give Administration a loophole through which
to force its way into student affairs,
Johnny Pearson, president of last

to Mr. Horn for his lndespensable
work in connection with the erection ot Brock Hall. "It will be
the biggest job in the world to replace him," he said.

• Oh,    boy,    this    week    is    the
Junior  Prom,   my  class  party,
I've been waiting for this for
months. Josi.'s only in second
year, so she couldn't run for
Junior Prom Queen, but she'll
sure run next year. I'm taking a
new babe, Sally, to the Prom
(she's a Junior, you see, then I
don't have to buy her a ticket) I'm
getting her the swellest corsage
from the Point Orey Flower Shop,
4429 West 10th. Phone ALma 0660.
I have to make a hit the first
time out, you know. I'm going
to a sorority formal, too. She's a
friend of Josie's (Sally Isn't, you
understand) I'll have to get her
a slick corsage, too, but the Point
Orey Flower Shop corsages are
priced so low. I can easily got
even orchids. They have swell
gardenias and sweet peas, too. I'd
better order them early, to make
sure they have some left. Apparently, one of the prominent executives of the Parliamentary Forum ls having a lot of fun with a
cute little brunette freshette. They
have fun chasing each other a-
round the quad and then she
appears In a 1:30 lab at 2:00 instead of her 3:30 one. It's a question of whether she was hiding, or
just wanting to have 3:30 free or
something else.

when he came back to the Caf,
he picked up his hat and put It
on, however, it was full of sugar,
and naturally, nearly mad-, molasses candy of the enraged second

be nice as Purdy's chocolates,
though. Some of th-a rounder pubsters say that Josie is eating too
many chocolates, but it sure work.*

Sullivan's music Is at his merry

when the story behind it is known.
For  he once said  of his score:
"It   is  perhaps   a  rather  strange
fact that the music to 'Pinafore',
which was thought to be so merry
and spontaneous, was written
while I was suffering agonies from
a cruel illness. I would compose
a few bars, and th-en lie almost
insensible from pain. When the
paroxysm was passed, I would
writ, a little more until the pain

• We think this is a classic. Prof.
F. H. Soward entered ln professorial splendor, spread out his
books before a mystified class and
began to speak. Then by the
dazed look on our faces he realized that it was the wrong room
and with an embarrassed remark
about absent minded professors,
he sailed by Professor A. C. Cooke
as he came  ln.
Just as we were recovering from
the tittering, with Prof. Cooke
quite puzzled, the door opened and
ln bustled That Man again. The
cynosure of all eyes, he blurted
"Oh my" and backed hastily out,
with our vulgar mirth resounding
and Prof. Cooke still bewildered.

For Playoffs

spot Plywoods set them down 2—1.

length the ball was forced up tho

an end to Britannia's hopes.
Outside of the usual bruises on
shins and ankles, the Varsity girls
