uestion Of Voting At 18
•    ON SEPTEMBER 21, the Trades and -Labour Council
passed a resolution asking that all Canadian dtizens be given
the franchise on attaining the age of 18.
On  Friday,  September 24, Thc
Vancouver Province wrote an editorial on this with the heading
"A VOTE AT 18?" In this editorial
the paper's editors discussed the
pros and cons of this resolution,
but dwelling mainly on the cons
of the question.
From this editorial we have
taken a quotation and put it
before some of the students of the
University and asked what they
thought about it.
This is the quotation: "A boy
or girl has had no experience and
lacks maturity. How then, can he
or she be expected to exercise
judgment on questions which are
often exceedingly complex and
which puzzle even the mature and
Alex MeDougall, Art* '44, says
this, "I agree with the Province.
A person at 18 is likely to make
a mistake in heir choice. Also
they have notiet ideas. Perhaps
they would beiverly radical!
Now Barbara tell, Commerce '45,
gets up her flgbjng spirit and says
this: "I dlsagre. with the PROW
INCE.   If boy $ and girls are eff
enough to fightfor their country
then they are ol enough to vote!"
Morris Seggie, m Aris freshman,
says this: "I dc4t think 18-year-
olds know the Sore well enough
to vote."
An anonymous four year Arts-
man stated that ylth the present
educational standrds (this is not
meant as a slur at the Department
of Education) in he country, it is
a bad idea for tie young people
to be given the ranchise."
Lenore Smith, trts '48, says: "I
believe that the fctelllgence of the
18-year-old Is eq1|l to that of any
21-year-old. Besiies that I resent
the Province's sl« on our Intelligence."

Sounds On
Frosh Front
• FRESHMEN initiation week,
one  of the  most hectic nnd
fun-packed weeks of the varsity
year in normal times, passed
quietly by last Saturday and only
a few morose seniors were present
as mourners.
Only one incident marked the
transition of high school students
to freshmen tills year.
Tiie Library was the scene of
the fray, several freshmen the
victims, and the lily pond was the

Outside of this one day's occurrence, It was all quiet on the

Selective service officials were
on the campus Monday to confer
with Employment Bureau directors
in an attempt to aid the recruiting of varsity students.
At least 200 men can be placed
Immediately in such industries as
lumber, manufacturing, aircraft or
canning companies, furniture factories and direct repairs on ships
of war in the harbor, waiting to
put out to sea.
Ed Frlesen, director of the bureau, is calling all University students to forget the monetary
returns of the work, which will be
sufficient, and consider this a call
to duty.
Students are asked to give up
social and other activities and make
f. direct contribution to the war
effort. The ships in Vancouver
harbor must put out to sea soon
and, unless labor is found, their
departure will be greatly delayed.
"Such universities as Princeton,
Harvard and Stanford have directly aided war industries by
supplying the major portion of the
labor for the four-hour afternoon,"
Frlesen told the UBYSSEY Monday.
"Hundreds of Vancouver's white
collar workers are shoveling coal,
working In the ship yards and
doing other distasteful jobs after
a full day's work at then* regular
occupations. Can UBC meet this
Plans for a meeting for all those
men Interested are anderway and
Selective S^tce officials brought
out representatives of two of Vancouver's major war industries on
Saturday and Monday. Everything
is ready now for registration of all
students willing to work.
Students are also needed to help
the administration in keeping the
Brock open, as the labor shortage
on the campus is acute. All men
who have an hour or two to spare
in the morning or afternoon are
urged to register in the employment bureau. They will be reimbursed.
All students are reminded that
unless this co-operation is forthcoming it may be necessary to keep
the Brock Hall closed for cleaning
longer than would be popular to
the student body.
Students interested In personnel
work are invited to apply as assistants In the employment bureau.
Every opportunity for advancement in this work will be given.
Interviewers and office workers
are urgently required. The Employment Bureau is working in
direct connection with Selective
Service and students helping will
be aiding the war effort In this
way also.
Hang On, The Women Are Coming
Co-eds At Last Take Pity;
To[Revive Tired COTC
0   THE WOMEN have done it again!
Saturday, Sept. 25, was the date set for the official
opening of a mobile canteen on UBC's campus.
At the present, there are twelve
hardworking and farseeing young
women making up the group and
taking an active part hi the canteen's work.
Among them are: Margie Beal,
Barbara Bell, Joan Fields, Florence Mercer, Babs Macpherson,
Doris Thompson, Loise White,
Eleanor Wyness, and Diana Young.
The plans for the canteen wefe
begun during the summer by Phyllis Bishop, President of WUS supplementing the co-operation and
enthusiasm of the other girls.
Dr. Mawdsley, in full approval
of the idea, credited the girls in
the canteen as doing their full
share of war work, although lt
was not affiliated with the Red
According to Babs Macpherson,
the leader of the group, the main
purpose of the canteen is to serve
hot stimulants and food such aa
coffee, doughnuts, pie. etc., to the
boys in the COTC, wherever they
mey be.
No, the food is not free. There
will be a small charge, the proceeds of which will go to the Red
Cross WUS Fund. Page Two  THE   UBYSSEY

The Mummery
By Jabez
EDITOR'S NOTE: In response to many
requests we reprint one of Eric (Jabez)
Nlcol's most popular columns, which appeared in The Ubyssey of November 25, 1941.
The C.O.T.C, once described as the
only sick parade ever organized as a unit,
stood sagging expectantly, waiting for the
order to fall in.
Several enthusiasts fell in before the
command was given, and had to be carried
off the the showers, victims of anticipation.
But it was a beautiful sight. The cold
brilliance of the sunshine brought out to
the full the patriotic colours of the men:
red noses, white jowls, and blue lips. N. C.
O.'s were running about nimbly or as nimbly
as their tight trousers permitted. Then,
suddenly, the order rang out:
"C. 0. T. C—ON PARADE!"
We shuffled into what we laughingly
called line, and waited breathlessly for the
command, "Stand Easy." Standing easy is
probably the one drill movement that we
can be said to have mastered, with the possible exception of the dismiss, or its little
brother, the break off.
"Take up your dressing, take up your
dressing," snapped the Sergeant, testily.
I looked to see if my pants had fallen
down again.
I was pleasantly surprised that gravity
had not set in.
"Squaw, squaw HUP," barked the
Then he fastened me with a steely glare.
"Didn't you hear me say 'HUP'?" he
"Yes, Sergeant," I replied amiably.
"Have you ever thought of trying 'Turns'?
They say they're wonderful for acid indigestion: burps to you."
"And nuts to you!" he snarled, his eyes
gleaming evilly as they searched me for
unbuttoned pockets.
Then his face lit up with a grisly glow.
"Who told you that you could wear a
corsage today?" he hissed.
I blushed awkwardly.
"A lady friend of mine gave it to me,"
I admitted in a low voice. "I thought, seeing this was a ceremonial parade . . ."
"I don't care if it grew there," roared the
"And stand at attention!" he added.
"I am standing at attention! It's just
this converted barrage balloon I'm wearing
that makes me look droopy."
"Brother, you would look droopy in a
sarong!" he gritted.
"Only from the back, only from the
back," I countered.
The Sergeant was obliged to retire from
action as the officers stalked te their posts.
It is always important to note when
your company is taken over by an officer.
For, whereas the sergeant-major may yell,
in a high falsetto:
"Company, stund ut hiss, Stund hissy!"
An officer may creep in unseen, and
bellow throatily:
"Company, stind hat haze! Stind
When you are expecting to be told to
"stund hissy," and somebody comes along
to tell you to "stind hazey," there is manifested that tendency toward both mental
and physical frustration which causes cadets
to pluck at the coverlets for days after a
Soon we were marching down to the
stadium. Marching with the C. O. T. C. is
always a thrilling, novel experience, as we
have more digerent steps than Fred Astaire
and Eleanor Powell combined. Last week
we featured a special khaki conga line, with
the primitive beat: one, two, three—skip,
one, two, three—skip, one, two, three—puddle, etc. With us, you either have rhythm or
you get trampled to death.
In the stadium, we watched about ten
minutes of rugby, and about forty-five minutes of bleacher blondes. Indeed, the men
of the Corps seemed to be more interested
in making plays than in watching them.
This brings up the question of the acquisition of a drum majorette for the C. O.
T. C. Once we have the majorette, we can
start thinking about the drum. This would
not only boost army morale, but also protect civilian women from offensive action.
Somebody should approach Colonel
Shrum on this matter.
But don't approach too close.

will be announced in the next
edition of The Ubyssey.

e, NOTICE: The Law Society will
meet in Arts 102 on Friday at
12:30. "Here is a chance to make
a success in the great profession
of law," announced president
Tommy Fisher. Details can be obtained from other members of the
executive, Secretary Blair Baillie,
and Business Manager Dave
Steeves, whose polite,
mild voice has often directed
itself toward this campus
from the provincial legislature and various public
meetings, has again brought
the University into the headlines; tehis time in connection with the coming selection of a new president.
Mrs. Steeves told the Labor
Youth Federation last week that
the Board of Governors should be
elected and not appointed. She
also wants trade union groups to
exert their influence so that the
new president will represent their
Education Minister H.G.T. Perry
answered Mrs. Steeves appropriately on the first count. Mr.
Perry said:
"Popular election of educational
officials would offset efforts to
keep education free from politics.
"Governors are chosen from
groups representing different walks
of life. If they were elected they
v. ould run the risk of being chosen
from just one group of people."
Hear, Hear.
Of course the taint of politics
will always be connected, ever so
slightly, with education, but to elect politicians to the Board of
Governors of this University would
be the height of mockery.
I don't like politicians, They
are necessary, I suppose, in government, but let's keep them away
from a uiversity.
To the CCF, education and politics go hand in hand. They run a
summer school every year where
they can teach their principles with
a camping trip as bait.
They are thinking now of establishing a "Labor College" in Vancouver  during either  this  winter
or the next.
The last I heard, they were going
rhead with the plan, but just what
the "college" would bo like, no
definite announcement to my
knowledge has been made.
It would be interesting to observe.
It looks as though they not only
want a "labor" college, but also a
"labor" university, complete with
a "labor" president, a "labor"
Board of Governors and on down
to the last "labor" freshman,
They're certainly tolerant,
e MRS. STEEVES also ridicules
the "service club type of man
who thinks that the mass of the
people should not be given too
much education."
We must tell the Psychology
Department about this new type, a
peculiar' type of man who goes
about subscribing to various charities and whose only club frivolity is a weekly luncheon and maybe club parties now and then.

Pre-med club

Medical Club was
founded with the hope that
it would promote the educational interests of all stu-,
dents engaged in pre-medical
work and acquaint them
with the requirements for
admission to the leading
medical universities.
The club was founded in 1933
in honor of the late Dr. A. S.
Munro by whose will the University received $80,000 for medical
research. Since there was not then,
and is- not yet any faculty of
medicine on the campus, the club
has served to make the student
more familiar with the different
aspects of medicine.
At our meetings wc present films
of various medical treatments,
mainly surgical. We arrange for
guest speakers who have specialized in some field such as
psychiatry, basteriology, or public

Social Problems Club
Presents Dean Mawdsley
Radio Soc*
Next Week
•   MOST STUDENTS joining the SPC already have come
to the conclusion that a "production for profit" economy
is anti-social and hope to see the day when Canada has a
planned "production for use" economy instead.
However, they are not content       ———————^——
to sit back and wait for that happy
day. Immediate solutions for the
problems and hardships arising
from the present economic order
must be found.
It is not surprising, then, to find
such topics discussed as Unemployment, the Beveridge and
Marsh Plans, Dominion-Provincial
Relations, the Political Scene,
International Problems, Post War
Reconstruction, Public Health,
Education and so on.
Of course, all our social problems
are not economic. For example
racial prejudices, morals and ethics, religious and philosophic outlooks on life, must necessarily be
looked into.
Coming still closer to home, the
Social Problems Club will discuss
campus problems such as campus
etiquette, Co-op housing, man and
woman relationships, the value of
a degree, etc.
A more or less improved order
must come as a result of this war.
Ont; of the greatest social problems
which will arise will be the misuse of the increased leisure time
through cultural and recreational
groups both within the club and
in conjunction with other clubs the
members of the SPC are preparing
themselves for that clay.
The club is open to men and
women, of all faculties and years.
Most meelings will be held on
Fridays, at noon, but there will be
several firesides and a camp-

include a much more varied type
of entertainment than has ever

of which will be announced in Ihe

American Institute
of Chemical
President—A. J. Shaw
e THE A.I.C.E. aims to promote
and encourage interest in scientific topics. Monthly meetings are
held at which members give papers
and listen to guest speakers. Members of the faculty are invited to
attend. Membership is limited to
those taking Chem. 3 or higher.
Discussions Club
e MEETINGS of the Biological
Discussions Club are held every
second week at homes of the members. Papers are read by members
and frequently a guest speaker is
present. Practical aspects of biology which are of interest to the
layman are discussed.
Membership is limited to 25 and
and Biology is prerequisite.
Owing to the enlistments and
graduations of the older members
there is a relatively large number
of vacancies in the club. This
means an opportunity for you!
True, all new members are not
guaranteed Hollywood or radio
contracts as several of our illustrious alums have obtained, but we
do guarantee a more enjoyable
and entertaining college life to
those who do join "Us Thespians."
This offer should prove attractive
not only to freshmen, but also to
upperclassmen who have seen our
production in former years.
The club demands no more tlms
of its members than any other
major club on the campus, and a
full month is left clear before
exams when productions are contemplated.
The main events of the year are
the Christmas and Spring plays,
the latter touring the province at
the end of the term. Recently
service shows and broadcasting
have also been greatly increased.
The Chirstmas show, usually consisting of three one-act plays, gives
the new members an opportunity
to show their abilities, as the casts
are selected, to as large an extent
as possible, from their ranks. These
productions will again this year be
under the direction of highly
qualified directors.
In cooperation with the War-Aid
Council, the club will present noon
hour shows for the students
throughout the year. After "Jack
Dalton," the first, you can expect a
revised edition of Jabez' "Science-
man Lover," further adventures of
"Guthrie Meek," and perhaps an
eye-opening opus, "The Birth of a
Scienceman," still in nuclear form,
which is designed to end all horror
Social events of the Club include
a formal dance in the fall, play-
readings throughout the year, and
two collosal production parties.
Perhaps, best of all attractions are
the unpredictable things that happen daily in the "Green Room."
Probationary memberships TJe
granted to those giving the best
performances in the competitive
tryouts, which include comic,
dramatic and tragic roles. For
those of you who feel that your
talents lie in other than dramatic
fields, there are openings for
many technical members.
If by now you have become
intensely interested in the Players
Club, come to the auditorium
Tuesday noon, September 28, for
the first general meeting. At this
time you will obtain further
details, hear directors, and receive
your tryout parts. It's real fun-

Shopping with Mary Ann' "Cleanliness Is Next
A record-breaking group of
seven hundred girls attended the
dinner and mock trial presided
over by WUS President Phylis
Bishop and her army of stern
"Wustapo" agents. Judgments
were levied on the heads of the
severest offenders who were
forced to pay penance. The face3
of all the scandalously naughty
freshettes were thoroughly
scrubbed with a dirty brush and
green makeup was applied to
Freshettes who ignored the firm
"No Makeup" ban.
Casey Kin gand Yvette Morriss
gave their version of the old wolf
versus co-ed problem to the
delight of the audience, and her
last kiss was described in detail
by Pat Dorrance. Peggy Holt was
forced to imitate Veronica Lake
doing^the conga. Other freshettes
who trembled under the verdict
of the stern "Wustapo" were
Dorothy Moxon, Joy McChon-
nachie and others whose sins were
less outstanding. "Doo" Housser,
who was nominated as Miss
Freshette '47 because of her goodness, puffed an enormous black
cigar presented to her by
"Wustapo" agents.
After duly punishing the freshettes "Big Sisters" broke down
and provided a dazzling floor
show. The clamorous WUS wigglers hula-ed and Mussoecers sang.

to-life story of a girl's university
career from professors to science-
men which was hilariously performed by Jackie Vance and

loath to part with their used books,
or that they are planning to sell
them to their friends.
The outcome of a situation like

University will keep alive that immortal saying, "Cleanliness
is next to Godliness."
*"""""""-—~"■~"~~—~~~-~"—^~—       The Caf has always been noted
for its lack of cleanliness but this
year the situation is aggravated by
the impossibility to get help to do
the sweeping, The task will have
to be taken over by the students.
However, the students should not
feel that because the place is swept
at night by the student janitors,
there is no need to be tidy in the
day time.
Each person should put their
plates and trays In the proper
places and throw their waste paper
hi receptacles provided. Cigarette
butts and matches, etc., should also
be taken care of and not left on
the tables or thrown on the floor.
The students should especially
observe the following rules:
(1) All persons at the end of
their meal must take their trays,
etc., to a table that will be provided and clearly marked.
(2) Anyone taking bottles from
the Caf must return them. All
waste paper should be put in the
containers provided. This applies
particularly to persons eating their
lunches in the parking lot. They
must not throw the bottles and
papers out on the ground. If these
rules are not strictly followed
other and more drastic ones will
bo necessary.
The fraternities and Sororities
will co-opera I e. Beginning today,
they will take turns in sweeping
out the Caf. After this source of
manpower has been exhausted,
other schemes will have to be devised.
"We have a beautiful campus,"
declared Bob Whyte, President of
the Student Council, "and there is
no reason why we cannot keep it
"This campaign, tha't started
Monday, will continue to be In
force for the rest of the year, I
cannot emphasize too much the
gravity of the situation. The students just have to co-operate.
"The idea of the campaign is not
to restrict anyone, but to keep the
campus and the Caf tidy. The
throwing of bottles and papers on
the grounds has got to stop!"
Also included in this campaign
is an effort to keep the students
from walking over the grass. All
summer, men have been working
on the lawns, now stuednts are
tramping it down, in fact; bare
spots are already showing. Especially bad spots are the lawns in
front of the Administration, Arts,
and Agriculture buildings. Sidewalks are provided and students
should use them. However, students may, if they wish, rest on
the lawn, but when they are walking to and from the buildings they
must keep off the grass.

Reap Points For Sophs
• BEFORE ONE OF THE mightiest crowds ever to assemble in our comodious gymnasium, the freshmen and
sophomores tangled in a tight-checking game of Basketabll.
Arguments twixt coaches, managers and referee featured at
When the ball was tossed at the
start, the teams seemed to be evenly balanced, and the play In the
first' quarter was just as even.
However, the Frosh managed to
get the better of the scrap as far
as the shooting went and consequently were up on the Sophs 5-2
at quarter time.
Coach Johnson of the Sophs
spent the whole Intermission on
the floor arguing with referee
Harry Franklin.
When the whistle blew for the
second quarter, Johnson and the
Soph walked straight for the dressing rooms. Suddenly five bedraggled figures came tearing out onto
the floor. They were dressed in
1902 style sweat pants and rugby
sweaters that had seen better days.
Tills was the Soph's second string.
The second line, though, seemed
to click better than the first bunch,
and at half time thhe score stood
at 8-7 for te Sophs. These boys
played so well that M. L. Van
Vliet thinks he will use them on
the Thunderbirds next month. But
tills will be nothing new to them
since they played on the squad
last year.
You guessed it—they were the
sensational freshmen of last season, namely, Stilwell, Sykes, Bakken,  Robertson and  Wescott.
However, they retired at the
halfway mark to be replaced by
the less-outstanding first string.
Somehow, they managed to keep
the lead, but the Frosh, under thc
coaching of Bruce York, were
coming up slowly.
The surprise came when the
sensational quintette, whom the
crowd had thought had retired to
the showers, streamed onto the
floor again at three-quarter time.
This time they showed the lowly
Freshmen no mercy, despite tho
fact that they brought forth stars
like Don Woodhouse, Ron Weber,
and Bob Heatherington. With ono
minute to go, the Frosh rallied
with a neat long sshot by Ro.i
Weber and a set-up by McCurdy.
Altogether ,the smooth style of
the second year stars was too much
for the unorganized freshmen and
the contest ended up with Sophs
well In the lead 18-12.
SOPHS: Kelly, Vaughan, Hill 2,
Campbell, Petrie, Cllmic, Calnes,
Stilwell, Bakken 2, Wescott, Sykes,
4, Robertson 10.   Total 18.
FROSH: Weber 2, Woodhouse 1,
Holme, McCurdy 6, McBride,
Heatherington 4, Macdonald,

Total 12.
Hoop Chatter
•   SENIOR BASKETBALL is rapidly getting in the groove
around this campus.  At the first practice on Thursday,
the veterans from last year went back into the old routine
and the new candidates followed them with little difficulty.
Among the would-be Thunderbirds were Jim Kelly, Bud
McLeod, Ron Weber, Don Woodhouse, Bob Heatherington,
and Pete McGeer. While giving the gang a quick work-out,
coach Maury Van Vliet looked over the newcomers with keen
At the same practice, there was a good turnout for the
Inter A team. Due to the shortage of coaches, it looks like
there will be only one squad entered in the Intermediate A
There is some talk of having an Inter B crew. All
hoopsters who are eligible for this group (under 18) should
turn out for the next practice on Thursday at 5:30 in the gym.

Ski Club Prepares Their Cabin
• NEXT Sunday the UBC Ski
Club will make the first work
hike of the season to Schuss Inn
on Grouse Mountain. The object
of this and following hikes is to
cut a supply of wood for the winter months and renovate the cabin
generally. All persons wishing to
ust the cabin this winter must put
in two such hikes. Final arrangements will be made at a meeting
in Arts 210 at 12:30 Thursday.
This year the Ski Club intends
to expand its activities considerably and enter teams in all major
tournaments and competitions as
well as holding a meet of its own
after Christmas. As two of Inst
year's stars, Georrje Woods and
Bob Crosby, will be back, the club
is looking forward to a successful
season, George placed fifth In a
field of more than forty in the
Kandahar downhill last year and
Bob will be remembered for his
excellent time in the Viskie Classic, a gruelling two mile downhill and cross country race.
Lest any prospective member
should feel that he may be outclassed, the executive wishes to
assure him that all persons who
wish to ski are welcome, regardless of previous experience. The
novice will always find one of the
club's bet(er skiers who Is willing
to show him the intricacies of the
rrt of schussing and slaloming.
Not the least enjoyable feature
of membership is the evenings
before a roaring fire in the cabin,
waxing skis and talking shop. As
accomodation in the cabin is limited, prospective members should
make early Inquiries regarding

Cr. Cup
• THE   CRICKET  eleven   from
U.B.C. met a similar group of
men from the Pro-Rec. last Saturday to decide who should hold the
trophy of their league. They accomplished little in the way of
decisions. To be sure, the Pro-Rec.
team won, but they still only get
half the cup. The score was 111 to
119 against us.
However, in the play-off series,
both Varsity and Pro-Rec. won two
games and lost one. On the basis
of average runs per game the Pro-
Rec. again have the edge over the
Thunderbirds, but the officials apparently prefer to view the matter

the most part of the summer.
At the close of the season Varsity was lied with the Army for
