•    a    e    irle/eVaaT&e
The
Gatepost
BY LIONEL SALT
• THE OTHER DAY I
dropped around to chat
with a veteran member of
our faculty. To me, this was
an outstanding event because
I rarely get to know faculty
members infimately enough
to "chat" with them.
1 wish, now, that I had started
earlier to meet them, because they
can see things about the University
that would never occur to an undergraduate. To them, the University is their life. When a student,
or any other person for that matter, does something that reflects
U.B.C. in a bad light, they suffer
with the University.
Snake-parades, for instance, are
a lot of fun to the freshman, but
put yourself in a position of a
faculty man who has to sit next
to a business man at a club luncheon and hear a tirade launched
against "those crary kids from
U.B.C.".
JUST supposor
Suppose you had taught classes
of students at the University, and
considered that yours was a profession worth much time and
labour.
Wouldn't you, too' feel somewhat
disheartened by it all? Wouldn't
you, too, take to heart the criticism being levelled at the profession of teaching during war?
These were impressions which I
got merely from one abort talk
with a member of the faculty, and
I started to wonder if a lot of the
difficulties between students and
professors wouldn't straighten
themselves out, If, in some way,
we as students, could acquaint ourselves with the faculty point of
view.
Naturally enough, this would
necessitate the faculty listening
sympathetically to the student
point of view. And although, in
some cases, it might be hard to
remember, still it remains that
they, too, were undergraduates at
one time, and they know all the
old gags we try to pull, too, (darn
'em).
Admittedly, it is a difficult task,
and not one that can be solved
merely by saying that it should
be done. Nor should students attempt to concentrate merely on
professors from whom they happen to take courses. It is general
atmosphere that should be aimed
for.
WHAT'S TO BE DONE?
One professor in the history department that I know of, takes
some of his upperclass students to
tea in Brock Hall, In this manner,
he not only attempts to get to
know his students, but also tries
to establish a feeling of camaraderie between the students themselves. An English professor on
the staff plays host to his class at
a tea before exams,
Clubs on the campus go a long
way towards familiarizing students
and faculty. Professors who act
as honourary presidents meet undergraduates away from the classroom, and can usually discuss
opinions and beliefs quite freely.
Unfortunately, too many students
and too many faculty members
never get into the extra-curricular swim, they get bookbound.
BUGABOO
And then, there is the old bugaboo of "apple polishing". If a professor ventures down into the Caf,
and some brave student engages
him in conversation, immediately
there is a chorus of "suck suck",
from those who figure that the
student ia merely worming his way
through another course.
Naturally,  students  and  faculty
alike  have   built  up   a   series  of
inhibitions, and  we're  right  back
where we started from.   Maybe if

Camp Exemption Given
For Vital War Workers
*   FROM the Adjutant General's branch comes the news
that those students who would normally have to go to
military camp in the summer can obtain exemption, in the
event of their being employed in an essential war industry.
Students must apply in writing
to their commanding officer for
this leave at least fourteen days
before the commencement of
camp training. Since it is expected
that camp will begin on May 1.
the deadline for application la
April 13. Applications must be accompanied by written proof that
the industry is a vital one.
CERTIFICATE NECESSARY
On completion of the summer
employment, before September 30,
those granted leave must produce
to their commanding officer a
certificate from their employer
showing the period of actual employment and the nature of the
work done.
The commanding'officer will be
responsible for granting leave and
if necessary will  investigate the
nature of the work. Where leave
has bean granted to a student
whose employment is found not
bona fide, no credit will fie given
either for the training center or
the camp training.
Students in Engineering, Applied
Science or the pure sciences who
secure employment with a view to
earlier graduation or a higher
status in a particular course will
be dealt with in the same manner
as students in essential Industries.
IMPORTANT: All pubsters who
are helping in the Pub Bingo game
will meet today, 12:30, in the Pub.
It is important that all concerned
be there.

Girls Plan
For Co*ed
Ball Feb. 26
• "HELLO HONEY, what you
doing Thursday night?"
These honeyed tones will come
across the wires to many hopeful
males this week, and those same
hopeful males will probably be
the ones that have been oh, so nice
to Made or Susie during the past
week.
And all because the girls are
turning the tables on the men
next week and escorting them to
the annual Co-ed Ball in Brock
Hall on Thursday, February 26.
But because of the ban on corsages at Vanity dances, the men
will probably have to miss the
usual bouquets In original design
showered on them at this time.
The Varsity orchestra under the
direction ef George Rfifel will be
in attendance. Tickets are $1.30 a
couple or 75c single. Hot dogs and
coffee will be served during the
evening.

Bill Orchard Warns Against
Stampeding During Air Raid
•   EMPHASIZING that there must be no stampeding in case of an air raid, Constable
"Bill" Orchard, University A.R.P. Warden, outlined regulations for all at the University
to students in the Auditorium on Wednesday.
When the first test air raid signal comes soon, every student faculty member and worker at the
University must drop whatever he
is doing and go to the assigned
positions, walking down the steps
avoiding stampeding," stated Constable Orchard,
Disappointed at small turnout, he
feared that if an air raid came
their would be much confusion,
and advised all to make themselves
familiar with the following regulations. All those students in the
Armoury, Arts, Auditorium, and
Administration buildings are to
cross the West Mall into the forest. People in the Agriculture and
Applied Science are to go west
into the forest. Students in the
Mining, Electrical and Mechanical
buildings are to head into the trail
behind the lily pond. Those In Science, Agronomy, Horticulture and
Agricultural Research buildings
will go to the nearest forest. Finally, those in the Stadium, Brock,
and Library, will run east into
the wooded region. Anybody in
the gym will do likewlses.
PRECAUTIONS
First Aid stations will be In
operation at the fire-hall and at
the stadium during the test as well
as In the case of a raid. Accidents
of any kind at this time must be
reported to the numerous Reporting Stations — one at every building.
Stating that the University authorities had not been "sleeping,"
Orchard announced that 64 sandboxes had been constructed and
the university was now supplied
with ladders,  shovels  and rakes.
The test signal will be the fire-
hall siren which will blow for 2
minutes, the "all clear" to be of
one minute duration. He announced also that a volunteer A.R.P.
student organization had been
formed and would be trained
shortly.
All Faculties Will
Be Represented On
Next Year's Council
By LORNA McDIARMID
• TAKING TO THEMSELVES the task of reforming the
representation of next year's Council, the student body
went to the polls Wednesday and elected three Aggies, two
Artsmen, and one Commerceman to form the balance of the
1942-43 Council.
To many students these results indicate that there if
no need for President-elect Morris to carry out his proposed
change in council representation.
With the formation of next year's council of nine completed, the outstanding feature of the setup is the 5-4 majority of non-fraternity members.
Voting of 1241 students, approximately fifty percent of campus
registration, resulted in allotment
of the six remaining seats to Mary
Mulvin, Mary Warner, Bill Mercer,
Lynn Sully, Helen Matheson, and
Paul Buck.
Only faculty not represented by
the successful candidates was that
of Science, baeken of Morris and
Backman, next year's President
and Treasurer.
CLOSE CONTESTS
The day's polling showed two
of the closest contests in recent
election history of the university.
Lynn Sully was proclaimed next
year's M.AA, President with a
mere margin of fifteen votes over
Alvin Narod, only other candidate.
Equally close was the contest
for Secretary of the A.M.S. in
which Mary Warner had a total
count of 318 over Shirley Mac-
Donald's 592. With five candidates
in this field and an indecisive
majority from first choices, it was
necessary to use the count of a
preferential system.
FINAL COUNTS
SECRETARY: Mary Warner 318,
Shirley MacDonald 392.
L.S.E. PRESIDENT: Bill Mercer
671, Foster Isherwood 554.
W.U.S. PRESIDENT: Mary Mulvin 330, Brenda Phillips 133.
M.A.A. PRESIDENT: Lynn Sully
409, Alvin Narod 394.
W.A.A. PRESIDENT: Helen
Matheson 257, Joyce Orchard 192.
JUNIOR MEMBER: Paul Buck
595, Alan Eyre 326.
PAST ACTIVITIES
Past activities of these students
who will -join with Morris, Back-
man, and Carson, elected M.U.S.
President by acclamation last week,
to form Council next year, Indicate that the rulers of the campus
will have varied experience behind
them.
Active members In Phrateres for
three years and members of its
executive for two are both Mary
Mulvin and Mary Warner.
The future W.U.S. President has
held the office of president In that
organization this year, and in addition has served on the executives of the Aggie faculty through
out her time at University.
The Secretary-elect is a Phart-
eres sub-chapter president this
year and is a member of Alpha
Gamma Delta's women's fraternity.
Future administrator of campus
organizations as L.S.E. President,
Commerceman Bill Mercer has had
ggf four years experience off the campus, and this year is vice-president of the Commerce Club.
Paul Buck, whose victory In the
contest for Junior Member gave
Aggies their third success of the
day, has engaged in Mamook activities and is President of Aggie
'44.
SPORTS
Prominent on the campus as a
basketball player is the director of
men's athletic activities next year,
Aggie student Lynn Sully. He is
a member of Phi Kappa Pi fraternity.
Participation in practically every
branch of coed sports is the record
of Helen Matheson. In addition
to major activity in Women's
Grass Hockey and Basketball, she
is President of Women's Big Block
Club and a former sports reporter
on the Ubyssey.
Delegates
Attend IRC
Conference
• WHILE UBC students are debating the problems of the
world on this campus, four local
representatives will be presenting
the Canadian outlook to the international situation at the Northwest conference of the International Club, in Seattle.
Memben of the IRC on this
campus, the four delegates ares
Professor F. H. Soward, honorary
president; Jack McMillan, president; Sheila MacXay, secretary,
and Helen Manning. Professor
Soward will speak on "Canada's
Place in World Attain" and the
other representatives will discuss
various aspects of political significance.
Conference members will hear
Louis Fischer, the celebrated author, and Dr. Hu Shlh speak oa
Thursday night. Saturday they
will attend a George Washington
Ball.
I.S.S. Raises
$135 For War
Prisoners' Aid
' • WITH the big money-making
function, the Carnival, yet to be
held, over 9135 has been raised
for this university's I.S.S. funds.
In addition to this total will be
the yet unknown proceeds from
Thursday's tea.
Greatest source of happy cabbage for the International Student
Service was Wednesday's special
Self-Denlal Day, which gathered
in $73.14.
Next in line was Tuesday's unique Pep Meet, for which 334.88
in nickels was collected.
Although final returns are not
in, Lois Nicholson reveals that the
assorted co-eds and wolves in attendance at Tuesday's Tea Dance
contributed about $20.00.

Election Echoes
Before commenting on the Student
Council elections just completed we wish
to congratulate the successful candidates
who have been elected the highest executive positions on the campus. May they
prove to be individually and collectively
worthy of their appointments, upholding the
traditions and standards of our Alma Mater.
Obviously, there has been a definite
swing this year from the general class which
has seemingly controlled campus politics for
several years. Whether this change will be
to the advantage or detriment of the Alma
Mater Society remains to be seen. Certainly
there was no apparent reason why one
group should have had such a monopoly
of representation, although a survey of the
work of past councils will show student
government of the highest and most impartial quality.
Unfortunately, two years ago this group
saw fit to set up a political machine to ensure the elections of students certain self-
appointed machine ring-leaders wished on
• council. At that time, the editor of the Ubyssey exposed this machine with much gusto,
heartily condemning its actions as being
against all the principles of democratic
government.
This year a well-concealed machine was
set up in other quarters of the campus, led^
we are ashamed to reveal, by a man who
Was elected to the highest position of responsibility in the Alma Mater Society. This
man was elected on the cry of seats for all
faculties on Student Council, claiming that
the present system of elections does not give
adequate representation. The results of yesterday's poll show that next year two
sciencemen, three aggies, three artsmen and
one commerceman will constitute our governing body. Five of the nine are non- fraternity. It seems as though the condition he
decried has been fairly adequately rectified
already.
However, when it comes to the point
where an elected representative of the student body goes around telling his faculty
members to vote for a candidate from another faculty (against one from his own)
just because that particular faculty supported him, the ugly practice of railroading
should be blazoned forth in all its unhealthy
glow. If these are the methods to be employed next year during his term of office,
we shudder to think of the consequential
decline of student government.
Some students apparently persist in
forcing the political machine upon this campus. There is every possibility that next
year some other group may deem it necessary to apply the screws in order to fix
elections.
Warning is hereby given that such underhand practises are entirely contrary to all
the principles we are fighting for today and
it is up to the student body as a whole to
see they are stamped out for good.
Dreaming In A Real World
Along with tile first signs of Spring
every year come reports of rumblings from
the faculty about attendance at lectures.
In the past, these rumblings have remained more or less in the background, being used by the staff to cajole unruly students back to the lecture rooms and laboratories where they belong. This year, however, as rightly befits the circumstances,
along with the seasonal campaign, punitive
measures have been meted out in one instance, and a student has been forced to
leave the university because of non-attendance at lectures.
On the surface, the action of removing
this student seems stringent and unnecessarily autocratic on the part of the administration.
Stringent it surely is, since this is the
first case of forcible eviction heard of in
many years. Yet, the case in question, which
should not be overly emphasized in importance, still remains as a warning to that small
group of offenders who, today, run the risk
of similar treatment.
Students must be made to realize that
they attend the University under the privilege of the government of Canada, that the
male students especially owe the freedom to
continue their studies to military authorities
who consider it as important to have education as it is to have a fighting army. Attendance at lectures is as important as attendance at C.O.T.C. lectures and parades. It
entails the same responsibility.
Academic discipline has been almost
anomalous at U.B.C, but if a few slackers
persist in flaunting the authorities, it can become a vengeful weapon. —L.H.S.

•   SO THE headline hunters are at it again!
Can.-U.S. Pool Resources, Tariff Abolished, Joint Defence Permanent.
What do these screaming captions
mean? Is Canada's nationality to be swallowed up in that of the United States? Is
the forty-ninth parallel to be more or less
ignored in future economic, political and
military arrangements between the two
countries? What, in general, is to be the
relationship between Canada and the Republic which is her largest, nearest, and in
many respects, her only neighbor?
*
Since World War 1 Canada has been
drawn steadily into the economic orbit of
New York City. The value of her exports, especially of wheat, to Britain has declined
while her exports, particularly of newsprint
and base metals, to the United States has
increased. British investments in Canada
have been constant at about two and a half
billion dollars while American investments
have increased since 1920 to about four billions at present. Moreover, this shift in
trade and investments has occurred mainly
in Ontario, the centre of British imperialism
in Canada and in Quebec, the source of the
Canadian attitude.
CHANGED ATTITUDE
Aside from the economic front, the Canadian popular attitude toward the United
States has profoundly changed. Up to at
least 1923 many Canadians were resentful
of the United States. They felt that while
Canadian blood and treasure was being
poured out in Flanders' Fields for more than
two and a half years prior to April 1917, the
Americans had reaped golden harvests from
our sacrifice. Canadians considered that
Americans during the Armistice lasting from
1918 to 1939 were scarcely justified in boasting "We Won the War" merely because they
had more quickly turned the tide. In any
case they had lost in dead more men than
Canada with one tenth the population. The
attitude of animosity sounds strange to the
present generation of college students for it
has been replaced by something infinitely
better. Mr. King has been anxious to im-#
prove relations between the two countries
in order that Canada might more effectively
act as an intermediary between the two
groat sections of Anglo-Saxons. Mr. Roosevelt has extended the "Good Neighbour"
policy to Canada.
During World War II the bonds between Canada and the United States have
been drawn even closer. The defence programs were fairly closely integrated under
the Ogdensburg agreement. As the Canadian war effort got under way Canada had to
buy enormous quantities of raw materials
from the United States. Before the war her
purchases from that country plus interest
due it exceeded her sales of goods to Americans and services to them as tourists. Canada's balance of payments with Britain was
the reverse of that with the United States.
Canada used a surplus of,pounds sterling
to meet a deficit of American dollars. During the present war the pounds have not
been available and, since Canadian purchases from the United States have so greatly increased, the deficit of dollars has grown
rapidly. To ease the situation Canada has
economised on dollars by placing an embargo on certain non-essential imports, increasing taxes to divert purchases to countries on sterling exchange, forbidding pleasure travel south of the border, and so on.
Even so, the deficit could not be met and
under the Hyde Park Agreement (March,
1941) the United States agreed to purchase
certain war materials chiefly aluminum and
ships of which Canada had a surplus and
the States were in need. How well this A-
greement has worked out is not yet clear
but a Joint Committee on Economic Defence has been set up in order to prevent
the two countries duplicating each others
supply efforts. Generally, the Committee is
to see that the production of war materials
in both countries is properly integrated and
at its highest possible level.
ONLY FIRST COUSINS
From the activities of this committee
the headline hunters have seized upon the
spectacular. The fact is that the tariff has
not been modified except on a few items.
Canada is still in urgent need of American
dollars. After the war the United States,
as is natural with a large, self-contained
country, will largely ignore her northern
neighbour. Canada, with her heavily regionalized economy, will hesitate to adopt
a consistent foreign policy in any matter,
let alone forsake her traditional affinity with
Britain. Canada and the United States will
be first cousins—nothing less because blood
is thicker than water—nothing more because marriage between first cousins usually
has unfortunate results.
After Some
lime
By DORWIN BAIRD
A LITTLE MENDELSOHNN
PLEASE
It was just about a year ago,
perhaps a little later by the calendar, but about the same time by
the weather. You know, the time
of year when the first few sunny
days in a row convince you that
winter Is not a permanent instltui
tion and that spring ls just about
the finest thing ever invented.
Anyway, we had been doing a
broadcast job at Vernon, and were
taking Sunday easy. Our host was
Lanky Al, who was once an operator in a city radio station and
who deserted that glamorous life
to buy a sheep ranch near Vernon.
The night before was one of those
things you sometimes do on Saturday nights and then try to forget for weeks. To be more frank,
we had hangovers.
So Lanky Al got out his '40
Buick (you don't get them where
he was before) and proceeded to
take us up to the grazing land. It
was a long, rolling hill that never
seemed to go up, but you found
out when you hit the top that it
was a mighty long way down.
And boy, what a view.
Below was the top of one arm
of the Okanagan Lake — the kind
of shimmering lake water, reflecting the sun, that you see in travelogues. And all around* were thousands of sheep, with their lambs.
As a matter of fact the number of
the latter increased by two when
we were there.
The sun was hot — so hot that
we lay in our shirt sleeves on the
grass and drank in the heat and
air till we felt sort of drunk with
the downright purity if it all.
If you've got that picture — of
a peaceful Sunday in the country,
then you'll get some idea of how
we felt a few moments later when
on of the shepherds came over a
knoll, carrying a lamb that had
broken its leg, carrying It tenderly In a manner to remind you that
after all, it was Sunday.
That was on a Sunday when in
the rest of the world the Germans
were slaughtering the Greeks, the
British were cleaning the Italians
out of Ethiopia, and the Japs were
staging another air raid on Chungking.
As long as there's a breed of
men around that will worry about
one lamb with a broken leg; men
who will chase and kill the wolf
that preys on the lambs, then
things are alright.
Sorry to string this out, but the
fact that its getting to be spring
again brought it all back to mind.
And I just thought that any Jap
parachute trooper who tries to descend on that particular ranch in
Vernon to get himself a lamb dinner, will have a helluva time getting away with it.
WELL, WHY NOT?
High in the department of useless suggestions comes this—why
not a pipe organ for the auditor,
ium?
Then somebody could write a
university hymn, and we could all
sing it before A.M.S. meetings, and
at graduations, which are held in
the gym) and a whole lot of spirit
would be engendered.
See — I said it would be useless.
YEOMEN OF THE GUARD
One of the most useful things
that happens around these parts is
the annual Musical Society production of a Gilbert and Sullivan
show. More even than the Players'
Club productions, the operettas
draw the attention of "down-town"
folk, people who otherwise don't
know there's a university around.
Gilbert and Sullivan represent
something British that may not be
left when this war is over. Out
of the mess may come a more
sober, grim nation that will have
little time for many years for satire.
When our great grandchildren
are studying twentieth century
England, it will probably be pointed out to them that two old gents
by thc names of Gilbert and Sullivan wrote musicals that were
pretty much typical of an era —
an era that was ended by a madman who thought people with a
sense of humor were cowards.
RUDDY LITTLE 'EROS
Hats off department this week
goes to the education class, which
outburst comes after seeing "Remember the Day."
You'll probably remember, somewhere 'way back in your not-so-
distant childhood that there was
a school teacher who was just
about tops. Probably not when you
were in her, or his, class, but in
the years that followed. I can remember one at Kitsilano High
School who prophesied correctly

• A Year Ago e.
In the week ending February
21, 1941, 1500 stalwart men of the
C.O.T.C. were still recovering from
their notorious church parade of

Primrose-Benjamin   Concert Is  Pass  Feature
Viola VirtUOSO Will Concert Masters .  . .
Visit Campus Mon.
• WILLIAM PRIMROSE, conceded by musical authorities
to be the greatest viola player in the world, will carve
another notch in the musical history of this University when
he plays in the Auditorium at noon on Monday, February
23, accompanied by Arthur Benjamin. This concert promises
to be the most outstanding event of the year.
Born in Scotland 37 years ago,'
Mr. Primrose began the study of
music at the age of four. His main
instrument until 1930 was the violin, after which he switched permanently to the viola.
Mr. Primrose studied the violin
in London at the Guildhall School
of Music. Later he studied under
Eugene Ysaye in Belgium. Mr.
Ysaye it was who recognized Mr.
Primrose's aptitude for the viola.
By 1030 he had switched to the
viola and one year later he gave
his first solo viola performance in
Rio de Janiero. Soon after, critics
began to recognize him as a great
artist. His brilliant works have inspired many of the world's leading
composers to write for him, including Boy Harris, William
Waltch, Nicolai BeresowsKi, Ralph
Vaughan 'Williams, and Samuel
Berber.
Today Mr. Primrose stands alone
in his art. His peerlessness is per-
haps, best expressed by Lawrence
Oilman: "Mr. Primrose is not only
• vWosor, he la an artist.**

Clement
Addresses
Farmers
Dean Clemenf adressing the annual Convention of the British
Columbia Division Federation
of Agriculture clearly declared
declared that a new deal will be
necessary for agriculturalists, to
prevent them sinking to a mere
"subsistence level." He said that
today good individual farmers are
producnlg more for trade and that
the less fortunate farmers are producing less.
In 1940, a survey was conducted
in both Canada and the United
States on certain blocks of land.
Dr. Clement asserted that in this
survey it was found that in Canada 50 per cent of the farmers
were producing 80 per cent of the
products on the market, while the
other 50 per cent produced only
20 per cent. In the United States,
50 per cent of the farmers produced 89 per cent of the market,
and the other 50 per cent produced only 11 per cent.
Rural people must pay high
prices for the things they must
have in farming, and Canadian
Agriculture policies are intended
to provide freight for the railroads,
as well as commodities in which
to' trade.
This survey meant that there
are twice aa many farmers as
needed to provide present products on the market. This means
a large number of subsistence
farmers, and hence a lower standard of living.
"Policy makers," declared Dr.
Clement, "should approach this
problem from a dlferent angle if
they are interested in the wellfare
of the rural people, and a high
standard of living for them.

"The Rivals" Written
By Sheridan In 7 Weeks
•   TO WRITE a play in less than seven weeks on the faint
hope of receiving a muchly needed few pounds, and then
to have that same play become one of the few of its time
to survive—such was the luck of Richard Brinsley Sheridan.
For his "The Rivals," to be pre-       ^•——i——■—■——
sented by the Players' Club March
25-28, was written in just those
circumstances.
The drama, written at the suggestion of the manager of Covent
Garden Theatre in London, contains a few scenes dreamed up by
Sheridan for a previous effort and
also some details based on happenings of Sheridan's own youth. "R
B.S." had finally turned to the
stage because it offered better returns than essays or pamphlets.
DISLIKED AT FIRST
After its debut at Covent Garden
on January 17, 1775, and its second
performance soon after, the comedy had to be withdrawn and revised, largely because of a poor
performance of the role of Sir
Lucius O'Trigger. And the more
conservative section of the audience disliked It; for they regarded
it as unwarrantable departure from
the sentimental comedy then in
vogue.
Successful after its revision, the
play ran for 14 nights at Covent
Garden, (which was quite an achievement at that time), and then
enjoyed considerable favour in the
provinces. "The Rivals" has been
one of the few of that age of sentimental comedy to survive. Critics
have relegated almost all the others to the'scrap heap, and are now
only produced by Little Theatre
groups as museum pieces.
The success of Sheridan's play
encouraged  the  production  of a
few farces and short comedies, but
none of these was of notable merit.
SENTIMENTAL
In reality, Sheridan had reverted
to the earliest type of sentimental
comedy, in which one of the plots
was comic and the other sentimental.
Most enjoyment from the production comes from its individual
scenes, rather than from the plot
as a whole. The action and dialogue of Mrs. Malaprop, Bob Acres,
Sir Anthony Absolute, et al, must
be seen, not just read, to be appreciated.
The whole round of elopements,
duels, secret corresponaences, and
all the rest of the simple-artificial
round may seem today to be fantastic, but actually it was all very
near the truth of life as it was
lived in those circles in those days.
THE GATEPOST
(Continued from Page 1)
we had a beer parlour on tho campus, where we could drop oa and
lift one or two with the faculty
occasionally in a quiet atmosphere
it might help. That's purely fantasy, of course, but drinking beer
is a charming way of releasing inhibitions. And they do it in
England, and even, sometimes, In
that land of education, America.
Anyway, I know that personally
I gained more from that chat I
had with the professor, than from
the countless hours I've spent
jeering at the faculty.

Luckless Students Lose 36-31 To Stacy Shoemen
'Birds Bounced Out
Of Playoff With
Loss; Season Over
•   IT'S ALL over now.
Varsity's Thunderbird hopes of a last minute comeback in the Inter-City basketball league playoffs came to a
sudden end last night when a strong Stacy squad whipped
the students 31-36 in the V.A.C. gym.
Although a strong student rally	
Take It
 WITH A GRAIN OF GALT
late in the second quarter brought
the students two points ahead of
the winners, the Stacey crew
proved to be men of iron, and
they made a terrific play in the
last half, and sparked by Jack
Lucas's brilliant scoring, they
managed to put the game on ice.
Lefty Barton and Harry Kermode played the best games for
the students, netting 11 markers
apiece. As usual the refereeing
looked like robbery to your partial correspondent.
The game was attended by a
very small gathering of spectators
— a larger crowd might have given
the boys the extra zest they needed
for a win. Another tact which
might have slowed down the student play was the tact that hall
the team had run the gruelling
cross country run earlier in the
day.

Sports A Year
Ago Today
• A YEAR AGO today the Varsity Thunderbirds went into
the final game of the Inter-City
basketball league against the highly tote Angelus team as underdogs and rated with a slim chance
of winning.
The Coley Hall coached Hotelmen
were out fcr revenge as they tackle
the Blue and Gold Cagemen. In
the four games played against one
another during the year, each
squad has won two and lost two.
Biggest spot of gloom appearing
on the Varsity hopeful horizon was
the dropping of veteran, hard
working Don Livingston from the
students' lineup.
Despite popular opinion that the
Varsity team hasn't a chance,
Maury Van Vliet predicts a win for
the etudes.
By BILL GALT
• YESTERDAY MORNING, for lack of something better
to do, some few of us read a puerile column by some
downtown pundit and bon-vivant, who because he has been
21 /or one whole year now, is a real bang up sports expert
(it says here.)
The column said in effect that the Varsity-Stacey
playoff game last night was a swindle. That anyone who
paid out good money to see it was a sucker, and further
that neither Varsity or Stacys have any right being in the
same league as Tookes and Shores.
The fact that (to my knowledge) our expert has yet
to attend his first basketball game this year of course in no
way detracts from his knowledge of the way the teams are
playing. After every game his Varsity correspondent, who
frankly knows nothing of the game, phones in four or five
lines and the expert rapidly analizes the ability of each team
and is prepared to write a brilliant column attacking their
inclusion in the league. #,
How about last year, Ray? We were O.K. then, we
were on top. How about a little team called Tookes. Remember when they used to be Ryersons? Why didn't we
rule them out of all playoffs because they lost a few games?
Take a look at Vancouver Island. No one could field
a team strong enough to beat the Dominoes, so what happens? Do they keep on playing, and improving year by
year? All Dominoe competition just folded up and quit like
you want us to do, chum. Now to have a game in Victoria
you have to import a team from the States.
Basketball is dead on the Island for just that reason
and we don't want to kill it here. Its too easy to kick a team
when it is down.
Of course, we all can't take trips back East to crash
the big time, and then come back to write about National
league hockey in the News-Herald, can we? It sure is a
lot better, isn't it, Ray, to sit home by the radio and hear
big time sport over the radio than to go out and; see it here.
Of course, Ray, we must admit that it was an enjoy-
able change to peer into your column and find nothing about
National League Hockey, or boxing or 'Big Time' Eastern
sports. You even forgot, for once to mention Sid Beech's
Tamale Parlour, Ray. What's wrong, Ray? Credit run
out—eh?
Soccermen Stopped
2-0 By City Coppers
•   VARSITY'S SOCCER hopes of defeating the League
leading City Police came to a sudden end Wednesday
afternoon when the Coppers stepped out and downed the
Students 2-0 at the Cambie Street Grounds.
Standing second in the league,
the Blue and Gold roundballers
had suffered only one defeat till
Wednesday's game, and that at the
hands of the Police team. The loss
Wednesday still left the campus
men in second place but dimmed
Varsity's hopes of gaining top
honours.
In the first half neither side tallied. Play was hard and fast and
the Varsity attack came near scoring the first counter. Fred Sasaki
hit the bar from close in with a
hard driving shot which had the
Cop goalie beat.
SECOND HALF SCORE
Soon after te second half opened,
the heavier Cop team came through
with a goal. Taking over the play
the Police smashed in a shot. Beit
Lawes, centre forward got the
credit for the tally.
Despite the concentrated attack
of the students, to even the contest, the heavy Police defense held
them out. Time after time rushes
were led by Sasaki, Louie and Wal»
lace to the Law and Order boys'
goal but all attempts failed.
Late in the final half, a penalty
shot awarded to the winners was
made good and the score stood at
2-0.
From then on *tlll the final
whistle, the Police played defensive ball in holding out the pressing
Varsity forwards.
Allan Todd, who hasn't been out
for the last few games was out
for the University squad. Wallace,
Sasaki and Quan Louie and the
ever brilliant Stu Roach played
their usual outstanding game.

Hundreds See D.U. Doug Lee
Cop Interfraternity Race
•   POUNDING IN a full thirty yeards ahead of a very
game BUly Husband, husky, smiling Doug Lee easily
won the strength sapping cross country trial with a time of
14:30:6 for 2.6 miles of rugged country.
The race proved to be the most mmh^bmimbibm
popular intra-mural event yet to
be staged, with better than five
hundred people stationed along the
course to watch the boys, and a-
bout two hundred in the Stadium
to watch starting and finishing.
The biggest surprise of the otherwise expected results (Doug Lee
and Bob Davidson were both favorites) was the appearance of
fighting Billy Husband in second
place at the end of the race. Billy
led the field in the stretch coming
into the Stadium but Doug Lee's
superior stamina was enough to
overtake him on the clubhouse
turn, to beat him by some thirty
yards.
Running third was Bob Davidson, with Lee an odds on favorite
before the start of the race. Fourth
spot was a dead heat between Jack
Tucker and Don McLean until a-
bout two yards from the tape,
when Tucker forged ahead to capture fourth place honours, beating
McLean by a halrsbreadfh.
Because Husband was not in a
Fraternity, second place points
will go to the Sigma Phi Delts, but
to the game runner from Vernon
will go the applause of all those
who saw his game bid in the
gruelling contest.

SPORTATORIA L
All-Varsity
Ice Party
Cancelled
• AS WAS announced by
Ted Scott, be-spectacled
arranger and organizer behind the Sports department
of the I.S.S. week, the All
Varsity night at the Forum
has been cancelled until
further arrangements are
completed.
The proposed Varsity night which
would have included a Hockey
game between a U.B.C. team and
the Junior Lions and also free
skating for all in attendance, has
been postponed because of the
Amateur Hockey League Game.
Fare for the All Varsity Ice
Skating Party was set at a mere
five  cents with  a student pass.
Harry Home, Ice Hockey Manager of the student squad announces that because of the enthusiasm shown in response of the
novel idea, another night will be
obtained In the near future.
Details are still lacking, but it is
expected that Home will issue a
statement soon.
LOST: One brown fountain. Probably near election tables Wednesday.   Return to Pub Office.
PILFERED: "Omnibook" from
the Caf. Return it, you thief, to
Andy Carmichael or to the Pub.
• LAST YEAR, the Ubyssey Sports staff sponsored a chink
contest on the campus which proved to be a phenomenal
success. Many teams were entered from all layers of the
Varsity social pyramid, and they played off in a spirit of
goodwill and sportsmanship.
It was hoped that the contest could be run off again
this year. It was felt that many people would be interested
in playing, and that perhaps the sporting spirit, so greatly
increased by recent fraternity sports could be further augmented.
But it was necessary to have the Gym. And when inquiries were made, it was learned that the only time that
it would be available was at 5:30 at night, and only on the
nights when the Senior "A" basketball team was not
practicing.
It is pretty certain that there would not be a great deal
of spirit if the play had to be done at these hours. No one
would enter if they had to stay out here until all hours of the
night to complete their games. So the idea had to be dropped.
This unhappy situation is due to the use of the gym
for military purposes. It is being used in this capacity all
the day, arid this in turn is directly due to the practice of
having the basic group take two half hours a week of P.T.
Last year, the military gymnastic requirements for the
basic! consisted of one one-hour period per week. Last year,
we were able to have a Chink Contest. Under the present
set-up, each half-hour struggle takes an hour to complete,
and the poor basic members are taking seven hours a week
training.
The general feeling in the ranks of the basic is that
one session with the muscle jerkers per week is enough. This
may account for the laxity in attendance in the ranks of
the basic gym classes.
From the student's point of view, the present system
is obnoxious, to say the yeast. Times when the Gymnasium
can be used for students sports are limited to a few hours
a week. Surely some compromise can be reached so that
divergent interests can be served.
Nothing can be done this year. But next year, three
courses are open, and one will have to be taken. The present
practice can be kept up, and sprts can be killed completely.
Or the Gym periods can be crowded up so that two can be
completed in an hour. Or the old style of one hour session
can be revived.
It is not our choice. It is up tc these in control of this
aspect of military requirements. We can only hope that some
equitable arrangement can be reached.
