It ts even more apparent to see
that an Artsman, not Alexander
(iraham Bell, invented that ulcer-
pprpetuator, the telephone. Bell was
frigging around In his shop one
day when his assistant, an Arts-
man who was ln the next room and
who had a date that night, suddenly discovered he was broke. No-
turaJly, being an Artsman, he disdained wasting all that energy
walking into the next room, so he
quickly rigged up a telephone, deposited a nickel ahd hollered: "Hey
Alec, can 1 borrow a five?"

he never did lend the Artsman that

Artsman. He was late for a lecture this day so he stole two
bicycles trom a couple of Engineers, hitched on a washing machine motor aiyl had the first hotrod.
It was the same Artsman, a noted
late-sleeper, who invented airplane

basket-weaving exam. He let the
Wright brother, a couple of broken-
down Engineers, put oil In the contraption and look who wound up
with all the gravy.
It was the same with the steam
engine. An Artsman suddenly got
the idea tor the steam engine while
watching an Engineer blow his top
when the Artsman took his girl
away trom him. Some guy called
Watt got the plaudits for that one.
The only thing the Engineers
have ever discovered was that then
common room the other morning
was full of a secret brand ot perfume available only at the manure
pile. Thanks to a group of Aggie
students tbe Engineer's girl

"Midnight in Paris" cologne. The

Tke engineer's pig had a yellow streak of paint running down his bidt. * -j-	
WifJJeif Clarified
NOW that the seige of faculty editions is over, (except for
'single pages) it is appropriate time to consider the journalistic efforts of the four undergraduate societies.
The Aggie Editor contained agricultural news, the Law
edition contained legal news and the Engineer's edition contained engineering news.
The Commerce edition presented campus news in its
widest sense. This was the result of lack of work and, of interest on the part of the Commercemen.
Major canlpus news was covered in the faculty editions,
but the rest "of the copy was propaganda for the individual
undergrad society. .N
The complicated agreement between the The Ubyssey
and the USC and the subsequent squabble with the Aggies
points to considerable dissatisfaction on both sides.
The undergrad societies are, it would seem, dissatisfied
with the v$f Tiie Ubyssey covers the news. This would account
for the hostility of certain sections of the campus towards
their student ^newspaper.
Is the undergrad societies feel they are not getting sufficient publicity for their social events, they should be allowed to print a paper on their own without any restrictions
Otherwise, the publication Board is held entirely responsible for every word printed in The Ubyssey.
With the acute staff shortage on the paper, which at
times sees four or five staffers turning out the an entire issue,
campus news cannot be adequately covered.
Perhaps a system of correspondents ih the various far*
flung faculties would assure better coverage of news.
*      If the undergrad societies were to take the initiative in
this direction instead of agitating for faculty editions, The
Ubyssey could carry all tihe news all the time.
Spring Is Sprung
AT the risk of being too optihustic and having to read
these words in a drenching rain, we would like to welcome the sprightly maid Spring to the campus.
This newest addition to campus life is being enjoyed by
students and faculty alike.
A slight drop in library population attests to the maiden's
We saw numerous groups of students munching lunches
on the library lawn and wandering aimlessly in the general
direction of the beach.
A noticeable  gaiety  has  permeated  the  campus  and '
thought of final examinations are diminished by the prospect
of studying outside in the warm friendly gaze of Spring.
To the exuberant snorts or
redshirts, the startfed ham-let
waddled -dp the front steps and
provided entertainment for the
astonished bookworms.
Reasons for the pig's appearance -were never disclosed. Engineers who dashed through
building could only grunt.
Later ih the evening the animal was seen trotting complacently before the lily pond, like
so many ether students with
spring fever. i
One person who recognised
the* engineers as residents ot
Fort Camp suggested that the
pig should be returned tliere.
"He would m rifht in *itn the'
other fellows at Fort," mumbled the student who is nimseit
a resident of said "pig-sty."

Religious Courses Advocated For Arts
By  C.  W.  TOPPING *
Religion and politics aro fascinating subjects that have, at
t'nies, become too controversial to be permitted as drawing
room topics ot conversation.
At the University of British
Columbia, in recent years,
both subjects have come
alive. The Political Clubs have
brought to tiie campus s'.utes-
men, politicians and demagogues. Religious discussions
have advanced to a point where
a persistent demand exists tor
courses in religion to parallel
the courses in political science.
, Courses in political science
go back, at least, to the early
Creeks, They are among the
most ancient and respected in
the curriculum, Courses in religion are almost as ancient
and respected with systematic
theology becoming the Queen
of tiie Sciences dining the Medieval Period in Europe. Why
have courses in government,
been retained and courses
in religion heen dropped by
Twentieth Century Universities?
The Twentieth Century Universities have roots that go
back to the medieval guilds.
Croups of scholars banded together came together and encouraged siiulenis to join Mieni.
The ttomlnlcans and the Franciscans, two religious orders,
were as significant ln the rise
of the University in Medieval
Europe as Teachers' College,
Columbia University, was ln
the rise of the high school in
the United States. In Canada,
the major institutions of learning of Nova Scotia, Quebec,
Ontario and Manitoba developed  under religious auspices.
Rut the trend in higher education recently has been away
from religious domination. Columbian College at New Westminster has been closed. The
University of British Columbia stands almost in a class
by itself as THE Canadian
University that has never had
a  clergyman  as  president.
Some students and some
faculty think the movement
away from religion has gone
too far and should be reversed.
Hence the exciting discussions.
A department of religion has
been set up at McGill University under the former President of the University of
Saskatchewan. Courses ln religion have*been embodied Into
t ii e Arts curriculum at
Queen's. Such courses have
also been endorsed "in principle" by the Senate of the
I'niversily of British Colu'ubia.
The scholarly tradition, as
has been shown, stems from
schools started under religious auspices. Since this tradition has heen continued ln the
specialist schools that deal
with religion It may be assumed that the "experts" ln religion know as much about
their subject as the "experts"
In physics or political science.
Now the modern university is
dedicated to the proposition
that there is no situation ln
which Ignorance is superior to
knowledge. If this Is the case,
then, we should permit tho authorities on religion to give us
the benefits of their research
just as we permit the chdpiist
to give us the benefit of his
research. And the argument ls
reinforced by the feet that no
student of anthropology, or
history, or sociology can Ignoro
religion as a force ln the affairs of men. A mode.'*, university, If It is true to Ito cen
iral purpose, i-.annot afford to
let the impression get abroad
that its prlmaary interest In
science and that religion and
the  Arts  are  for  others.
What form should con-sea
take and in what department
or departments should they be
The first courses introduced
should,    In    my    opinion,    be
among the most scholarly A
fered on the campus. They
should not be propaganda courses and they should not, abovo
all things, be "snap" courses.
Unless religion is treated, at
the university level, with dignity and competence it is
likely to be brought into ridicule. The courses could be offered In a single department,
as at McOill, or they could be
spread over the departments
since, due to Its breadth and
complexity, religion can be
studied from the historical, the
philosophical, the psychological, the anthropological, or the
sociological viewpoints. One of
the most frequently listed courses is "The Bible as Literature."
The logical sociological course
on religion would be a course
In comparative religion that
describes and contrasts the
more important contemporary
living religions with particular
emphasis on Buddhism, Judaism, Mohammedanism and
•Christianity. This Is the course
whicli has been discussed most
frequently on the campus. It
should provide an excellent Introduction to the study of religion as a significant con
tempornnry social phenome

Home Ec Girls
Are All Different
Clambered on the bus the other night With several Home
Ec. friends.and as we brushed by some fellows, one raised an
eyebrow and remarked sarcastically: "... Obviously Home Ec.
'types' " * '	
And he reddened when he realized his remark had been overheard.
Ever since 1 fiave been wondering
if there ever will come a day when
people who classify others as
"types" will in turn be put, by the
scruff of the neck, Into their rightful  pigeon-holes.
What is a "Home F,c. Type?"
Well, of course, tliere is no such
thing. Taking a ivmup of girls in
I Ionic I'>.. you will find us many
varied 1 () )i<s uiul personalities as
you would in any otliui* group, he It
male or female.
Tliere are the girls who have
not changed much since the high
school days, when lipstick was
'gaudy,' anil wearing stockings was
'snotty.' There are the girls with
looks that can make a man crawl,
make a girl o?;le. There are girls
with brains and with Incentive and
with ambition. There are smartly
dressed girls and there are shoddy,
shabby, meek girls. There are big
girls and little girls and all kinds
of   girls.
And that sleok modern building
at one corner of the campus
swallows thorn all every morning
and hides them in lectures, in seminars, in labs, shakes them and
wakens them and then, toward evening, spits them out in little dribble, a Utile bit tired, a little wiser,
each with a new germ of thought,
each with a pile of books and a pile
of homework.
And what do these girls learn?
Well, Ihey learn cooking and sewing and nutrition and chemistry of
food. They learn how to give demonstrations, how to speak In public,
how to organise, how to give radio
talks, seminars, and how to lead
discussion groups. The learn psychology, anatomy, diet therapy,
economies, commerce. They study
inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, physics, biology, bateriolo-
gy, architecture, botany, horticulture.
And after four years, what do
lli,ese girls do? Well, they go into
teaching, research, dietetics, interior decoration, journalism, television, social work, institution administration, radio, government posi
lions. There is hardly a field today
Ihat is net hoi I or for a graduate
Home Keononiist.
I'liy'.' The highest  paid women ln

because so many of the women get
married. And what kind of wives
and mothers dp they make? Well,
we'll Just remind you ot some ot
their special courses ln marriage
and family relations, nutrition and
child development ...
What's a Home Ec Type? I don't
know for sure. But chances are, its
quite  attractive  and   intelligent.
Spring fever got you yet?
How about giving it a chance
at the Home Ec Formal on
February  22  in   Brock   Hall?
"It Might as Well be Spring"
is the theme of the affair, and
it's sure to carry you right
into a June-mood. There will
be roses, soft music and all
that goes with them. Dancing
starts at nine, but to get you
in the mood, there'e a cike
party In the Home Ec Building at eight. All Home Ec.
girls and their friends are welcome. Tickets, $2 a coupla on
sale In the Home Ec. Building.
