Term No. 3 of the' academic year
1888-1840 Is now a reality. Back to
sohool oome all the football players,
the amateur actors, the campus reporters, the university musicians,
the hookey players, and the ordinary go-to-almost-all-your-leoturee students. Professors drone on and on
and on, and as the new term swings
into aotlon, students wake up to the
drone, plnoh themselves to stay that
way, and begin taking notes; Beware
the Ides of Maroh, not to mention
the Ides of April and the Ides of
May.
CALL OF THE WILD
And speaking of professors and
students and the baok-to-leotures
movement, we note that a well-
known Alberta student was at a
leoture the other day. He waa looking out the window at the blrda, and
the bees and the flowers while the
professor was orating on man-made
subjects. Suddenly he (the student)
heard his name being mentioned.
"Would you oare to say anything on
the subjeot, Mr. . . . ?" he was asked.
"Well, no."
"No comments?"
"I don't think I would like to commit myself."
"Well, what Is your own opinion?"
"I wouldn't oare to say."
"Anything trom your reading help
you?"
"No, It's too Involved a question
to get out of a book."
"Did you hear the question, Mr.
. . .  ?"
"Oh yes, I heard the question all
right."
"Well, for the benefit of those
who didn't, I'll repeat It. What la the
sum of two and two?"
THIRTY DAYS HATH
Sept. Apr. June and Nov. or ao
runs the rhyme you and I learned
many yeara ago. But leap year
comes once in four . . . and then
the fun starts. A warning to all good
men and true: this Is 1040, leap year.
But, Is everyone exoited? A student
survey at the University of Toronto
says No. "Men are too oonoelted anyway," said one oomely co-ed, and another added, "Wild horses wouldn't
drag a proposal out of me." The men
Interviewed were not afraid. They
considered themselves beyond the
reach of feminine heart-throbs. However, and everyone seems to have
ignored this completely, the girl who
proposes, and is refused, is entitled
to receive one dreas. So the advice
of thia oolumn to all you oomely coeds ls: Propose to a married man
and get yourself a wardrobe. Alao,
leave out the Insolent lad who said,
"What's ao different about leap
year? In the laat analysis, the girls
do all the proposing anyway."
DEAR DOCTOR DANIELLS
Students at the University of Manitoba were surprised a while ago
when one of the Winnipeg newspapers ran a list of Winnipeg's most
eligible bachelors, For one of their
professors was Included. But Doctor
Danniells had little comment for the
press. "I was quite amused," he did
say, "to see myself at the feet of
Frltzie Hanson—Just like a football."
This may well be symbolism, for an
eligible and erudite bachelor like
Doctor Danielle, with a moustache
to boot, will receive a lot of kicking
around at the hand of the eliglble-
bachelor-seeklng damsels now that
leap  year has  come once  in four.
REFUGEES
Queen's University is trying to
complete arrangements at Ottawa to
bring a refugee European scientist
to Kingston. Although many Canadian universities have brought refugee scholars to Join their staffs, thla
latest move by Queen's is the direct
result of the formation of the Canadian Society for the Protection of
Science, patterned after the British
society of the same name. This organization puts the bringing of refugees to thia country on a more organized basis than It has had hitherto. Men are being brought who will
make a valuable contribution to
Canadian life, and especially those

McGoun Trophy At Stake
In Tonight's Debate
Merits of Post-War United States
Of Europe Will Be Discussed
By U.B.C. and Manitoba Teams
U.B.C. Debaters Bernard Reed and Alfred Carlsen, and a
University of Manitoba team, Donald Qow and Hugh McFadden,
which arrived in Vancouver this morning, argue tonight on the
merits of a United States of Europe.
Simultaneously at the Universities of Alberta, Saskatchewan,

 ■ RESOLUTION
Hugh McFadden
Thrupp's Physics
Belittled By
University Men
The amazement with which the
general public has reoeived the remarkable predictions of Edgar C.
Thrupp, 2547 Wallace Crescent, Is
not shared by the scientific minds of
this  university.
According to Dr. A. M. Crooker, of
the Department of Physios, there Is
nothing at all unusual about the accuracy of Mr. Thrupp's statements.
In fact, it would be rather unusual
if hia predictions failed to occur.
EARTHQUAKES AND 8UNSPOT8
"More than six earthquakes are
recorded every day," Dr. Crooker
said, "Since Thrupp allows hlmaelf
about three weeks in each of his
earthquake predictions, it would be
somewhat difficult for him to mlas
his guess."
"Similarly with his predictions of
sunspots, as there are from 400 to
1200 sunspots every year, the chanoea
of correot prediction are certainly
good.
"Thrupp's theories are based on
an old exploded Idea known as the
Lo Sage Hypothesis. Thia theory ia
atlll mentioned as a curiosity in some
of   our  scientific   textbooks.
ETHER   IDEA
"Furthermore, his Ideas Imply the
acceptance of the ether idea which
is completely discarded by the modern  sclentiat.
"Tho properties that this ether
would have to have would be simply
preposterous. It could have no mass.
It muat be as rigid as steel, and yet

Reed and Carlsen will defend the
lesolutlon "That a United States of
Europe at the conclusion of the present war would be most conducive
to European peace."
The  debate  will  be held  In  the
ballroom    of    the    Hotel    Georgia
commencing   at   8:15   p.m.   sharp.
Students will be admitted free on
presentation of their pass.
Donald Oow, a fourth year student
and one of Manitoba's most capable
debaters,  ls senior representative on
the   Student's  Union.   He  was   formerly   connected   with   the   "Manltoban,"  official  publication  of the  University  of  Manitoba.
Hugh McFadden, fifth year Union
College student, has had a wealth
of experience ln Manitoba debating
circles. Former councillor on the
Manitoba Students' Union he speclal-

director of the Vanoouver Daily Province, and H. L. Weir, editorial
writer of the Newa Herald, will
Judge the debate.
Teachers Hear Of
Education System
In America
"More adequate training is necessary in Canadian normal schools"
stated Mr. A. R. Lord, principal of
the Vancouver Normal Sohool, as -Are
discussed the merits of the American
system of education before a meeting of the B.C.T.F. in Arts 206, Monday  noon.
In his extensive studies of the educational training for teachera In
United States, Mr. Lord found that
the course was longer there, and
more adequate to cope with modern
methods of teaching.
C.S.A. Filibuster
Charged Over
Union Issue
Proposed National
Organization Gets
Little Support
The Varaity
Staging what appeared to be a
filibuster, the Canadian Student Assembly spent an entire morning In
plenary session Deoember 80 quibbling over points of order and of
procedure when the steering committee presented its report on the amalgamation of the C.S.A. and the
National Federation of Canadian
University   Students.
When It was found that the findings of the all-night oommittee were
being waated by extravagant delegates, another committee spent the
afternoon deliberating. By the time
the polished report oame before the
300 delegates many were thumbing
railway time tables and with little
or no consideration, the 18-polnt list
of suggestions was tabled for consideration by the national exeoutive.
GET TOGETHER
Both of the two national bodies
have claimed to represent the opinion of 40,000 Canadian university
students for oome time. That the two
should get together was the earliest
desire of several campuses. Consequently the C.S.A. drew up recommendations for this amalgamation.
A new organisation was considered whioh would be established on
each campus. This would replace the
existing branches of the C.S.A. and
N.F.C.U.S. and would Include the
best principles of each. The local
structure would consist of a council of repreaentatlvea from apeolal
intereat groups, and official faculty
organisation repreaentatlvea where
ao deaired. Student councils would
be invited to appoint a representative to thia body.
The new organisation would hold
biennial national conferenoea and
regional conferenoea In alternate
yeara. Those attending the conference would be repreaentatlvea of the
new organisation, of the atudenta'
council, any other Intereated atudenta, and official delegatea from
national  atudent  organizations.
LAST CHANCE
FOR A TOTEM
IS TOMORROW
"Students' Council has ordered
that no Totems be printed unless they have been ordered and the
down payment made in advance,"
said the Totem Editor yesterday afternoon.
With the sales deadline set for
1:00 p.m. tomorrow, thia news should
be of intereat to thoae few lagging
atudenta who "intend" to get a Totem aoon.
Studenta have had plenty of warning in the form of newa atoriea, aales
campaigns, pep meets and whatnot.
Frank Pendleton, Circulation Manager, Insists that those who do not
yet know of tomorrow's deadline deserve to go Totem-less this year.
Orders will be taken up until noon
tomorrow at the Totem offlce, or by
any one of the numerous sales-people on the staff. This ia positively
the last warning!
Grad Parchments
Arrive Safely
Graduating students of 1940 will
receive their sheepskins at convocation as usual, announced Registrar
Stanley Matthews yesterday. Word
from the East states that the scrolls
have arrived safely across the Atlantic.
Considerable doubt had been felt
here that the sheepskin certificates
would get through from the war zone,
ond news of their landing on this
continent will be welcomed by the
seniors.
Pearson Denies Student Delegates
To C.S.A. Official Representatives
Of University Opinion
SASKATOON, Sask., Jan. 17—The Students' Council tonight
dissolved the C.S.A. Committee on the campus of the University
of Saskatchewan and severed connections with the national C.S.A.
They approved of the N.F.C.U.S., implementing section nine of
the constitution.
SACKVII.L.E, N.B.—Mount Allison Students' Union haa
decided by a large majority to withdraw from the C.S.A.
• PEARSON STATEMENT
As C.S.A. officials assured under*
graduates, at a noon-hour meeting
Wedneaday, that their delegation to
the C.B.A. blennlel conferenoe was
entirely representative, AM.S. President John Pearson issued a statement
demanding a complete report of the
conference's findings for Counoil perusal and denied that the delegates
were official repreaentatlvea of the
Unlveralty.
"The C.S.A.  la representative of
certain groups on the oampus, but
the   Students'   Counoil,  elected  by
the   undergraduates  themaelves.  Is
the    only    offlolal    representative
group," he told the Ubyssey. "Any
atudent la free to expreaa his opinion, but It may not be student opinion, and certainly not the opinion
of this University."
Worried   by   student   attitude   towards  the  O.8.A.  conference,  whloh
the Mount Allison University delegation   labelled   as   "anti-British   and
anti-war," Shellah Hutchlnaon, President of the local C.S.A., hastily called
a  student  meeting  Wednesday  noon
and told a group of student leaders
and Interested observers that the attacks  made on the conferenoe were
"entirely unwarranted."
Six U.B.C. Clubs
Dissolved By
L.S.E. President
Two Others Redeem
Themselves; Dance
Band Recognized
Six U.B.C. olubs are dead.
Failure to file written statement
of term activities and constitution
before Darrell Braidwood, President
of Literary and Scientific exeoutive,
has resulted in the abolition of five
olubs. A sixth dissolved yesterday
because of laok of Interest.
The glee olub,  arta olub,   radio
operators'   olub,   navigation   olub
and   modem   muslo   appreciation
olub  are   gone.    Failure  to  comply  with   Darrell  Braldwood's  orders  for  a  written  atatement   of
their aotlvities resulted In the   revocation of their constitutions this
week.
Yesterday, members of the Political  Discussions Club,  faced with  the
resignation  of their speaker,  Frank
Wiggs,   passed   a   resolution   dissolving  the  club   and  amalgamating    lt
with the Parliamentary Forum, until
suoh time as campus opinion would
demand its reorganisation.
UNCONSTITUTIONAL
Two clubs saved themselves from
similar destruction. The Oerman
Club and the Forestry Club, which
were charged with inactivity, proved
to the L.S.E. that they were functioning properly and were allowed to
continue as campua organisatlona.
Darrell Braldwood told the Ubyssey that any meetinga held by the
abolished clubs ln the future would
be regarded as unconstitutional and
stern steps would be taken In an
event of thla nature.
VARSITV RAND
Meanwhile, the Studenta' Council
announced that a constitution had
been granted a new club: The Varaity Dance Band la now an official
U.B.C. organisation and can uae the
University's name to play at campua
functions.
A committee composed of Bernard
Reed, president of the Parliamentary
Forum, Richard Jarvis, president of
the Film Society, and parrell Braldwood are at present working to revise the L.S.E. constitution in order
to give the President of L.S.E. more
power.
Letters To The Editor
Editor The Ubyssey,
Campus.
Dear  Sir:
I would like, through your paper,
to thank the Sclencemen for the Interest they have taken in our Totem
Sales  Campaign.
At considerable trouble to themselves, apparently, and without being asked by either myself or any
member of the Totem staff, the aaid
wearers of the Red replaced our
quad Totem sign with the scientific
cryptogram:   "El   Stuffo!"
Unfortunately, however, the Sclencemen failed to offer a translation
of this term for their leas perspicuous Arts brothers. The words, of
course, are Science talk for "Got Urn
Totem?" And might row be translated as meaning "It's Tuffo"—If you
haven't ordered your Totem, by noon
tomorrow.
Yours  sincerely,
BILL   MILLERD,
Totem   Publicity   Mgr.     I
CONSCRIPTION  QUESTIONNAIRE
Admitting that the attacks were
made on the opinions of a minority,
the C.8.A. president stressed the point
that the opinions expressed at the
conference were in no way binding
to the students at the University of
British Columbia.
At the same time, the C.S.A. delegation told students of the recommendation of the National Council of
the C.S.A. that a questionnaire on
conscription would be circulated
among all youth and unlveralty
groups. C.S.A. officials refused to
state whether or not a questionnaire
of thi. nature would be circulated
on  the U.B.C.
NO REPORTERS
Val BJarnson, secretary-treasurer
of the local C.S.A. and one of the
U.B.C. delegates to the conference,
told the group that the conference,
dlacuaaed all Issues behind locked
doors.
"We gave out periodical reports to
the eastern papers," he said ln reply
to a question, "but no reporters were
allowed at the Conference."
BROCK BALL

Editorial
WHEN '' STUDENTS'' ASSEMBLE
During the last few daya on this campus there has been a
great deal of discussion of the word Democracy. Some people
have said some things, othera have said other things, and both
groups are equally convinced that the veracity of their remarks
ls unquestionable.
It has been impossible to avoid reading at least some information concerning the gatherings of students in the East of Canada
during the Christmas holidays. It has been almost as difficult to
form definite and accurate opinions of the proceedings at the Conferences in question. Yet there have been the most remarkable
and unexpected reactions to one of the several Conferences.
The C.S.A. meeting called ostensibly for the purpose of introducing changes and reforms into the University, and the national
life of Canada apparently sat 'around polished mahogany tables
in lofty rooms hatching plots to lend invaluable aid to the proven
leaders of our educational system and our national policy.'
'In fact,' says the Editor of the Gateway at tho University of
Alberta, 'the whole business reminded us of a Boys' Parliament,
perhaps a bit more mature, but doubtlessly as much without apparent justifiable purpose that could make us change our opinion
that a great deal of time and energy was wnsted.'
Of the student attitude at his university the Editor of the
Gateway continues to write, 'the reaction of the students at Alberta to the ill-fated C.S.A. organization at Edmonton indicates
that student opinion here is more concerned with the real purpose
of a university than are the hairless intellectuals who have withdrawn their elect selves into a sacrosanct realm of pseudo-altruism-'
The Gateway's condemnation is probably stronger than is
absolutely necessory, yet there is an element of sound common
sense in what it says. Too much is said about democracy and much
too little done. The fear of losing democratic rights and privileges
appears to be moro acute nt the present time than defending those
that wo havo, and the tendency to criticize tho representatives
of this country for being eager to annihilate tho last vestiges of
freedom of thought, opinion, assembly, press unci so on ad infinitum, is pitifully great.
Pow intelligent people wish to sacrifice the security of our
country in order to retain n superficial condition of democracy.
The fundamental principles of democratic living ore far more profound than nre temporary stops taken by the government to increase tho success of Canada's war effort.
Yet the C.S.A. would have us think that tho unity of Canada
is rapidly decaying, thnt there remains scant hope of vvvr returning tn n democratic way of life, that the possibility of conscription
is both urgent and inevitable (in spite of the otherwise satisfactory assurances of the Prime Minister of Canada), and that the
present university student should bo granted a more profitable and
secure future.
It seems probable that having onee constructed a suitable
problem of disunity tho Conference was able to employ a great
deal of time in seeking a solution. The Quebec election, so if
appears was forgotten as moaning nothing!
In the hopes of returning to o democratic millcnium within
the near future, the C.S.A. held its meetings within closed doors,
and permitted no gentlemen of the press to report their 'deliberations whieh transpired in the awesome atmosphere of something
.-ailed  intellectual superiority.'
In an effort to settle Canada's foreign policy and war scheme,
the Conference made the constructive suggestions that conscription be opposed, thnt C.O.T.C. eovirses be possibly substituted for
l*hysieal Training Courses at universities, and that substitution
of C.O.T.C. training for general subjects be deplored! It is comparatively obvious why some universities have doubted the completeness of the sincerity of all those at the Conference.
As tho Mount Allison delegotes have said, the time should
have been "one to help, not to hinder."
And now comes the news of Saskotehewan University. There,
too, they have seen the need to disband the local C.S.A. committeo,
nnd to sever connections with the National C.S.A.
Tho students of this oampus should first see "thnt our universities turn out students with 'ants in their pants' rather than canned
intellectuals with crusading notions that they are 'makers of' a
nation' onee thnt they have had their graduation picture taken
-with gown and hood."

Crackling
of Thorns
THOMAS MANN (IX)
Limited by spaoe to diaeuealng
only two of the more olgnifloant as-
pacta of Mann's views, I ahall deal
flrat with one of the moat ourioua
attaoks I have heard made on him
—by critics who oaatigate him for
attempting to build a bridge, a
bridge whioh his antagonists consider rather too flimsy a struoture,
between Sohopenhauerlan philosophy and Freudian psycho-analysis. I
have also heard him reproached, and
perhaps not unjustly, for being
rather too dogmatic, for tending to
imply that his utterances are made
ex cathedra, In describing the spiritual span with which he attempts to
link Schopenhauer and Freud. For
some critics, Mann seems rather too
pontifical. But perhaps the pontifical attitude ls the one most suited
to a constructor of Intellectual cantilevers and arches. Pontiffs have
long been needed to guide men over
the abysses spanned by the wide and
unobstructed bridges of faith (it
seems indiscreet to mention the incidental collection of tolls); perhaps
pontifical leadership I. also necessary to see men safely across the
philosophical gulfs traversed by the
steadier but more tortuous bridges
of reason.
But even a cursory oelllade ln
Mann's direction shows that as a
bridge-builder (or pontiff) he is not
utterly inept. Nor is bridge-building
his all-consuming passion.' However,
he doea try with considerable success to provide a nexu. (and fortunately, for onoe among present-day
secular pontiffs, not the sexus nexus), between the Will/Intellect reaction (which he might characterise
as the traditional instrument of the
artist attempting to formulate whatever equation is best suited ln any
specific set of conditions to make the
raw experience produced by those
conditions functionally significant),
and the Id/Ego reaction which post-
Freudian psychology requires as a
fundamental premise before it can
begin to clarify the interplay of the
Individual and his environment in
pscho-analytic terms.
Mann's conclusions regarding the
similarities between the emphasis
which Freud and Jung lay on the Id,
and the almost Invincible vitality
which Schopenhauer assigns to the
Will, are of considerable importance: Often by direct assertion and
often by obvious implication, Mann
sketches at least the broad outline,
of a common ground on which
psycho-analysis and philosophy oan
work In unison. I prefer to think of
him as suggesting adequate means
whereby the former oan be placed
in the latter's service. It seems more
fitting that Freud should work for
the greater glory of philosophy than
that philosophers should concern
themselves too much with Freud.
Despite Mann's efforts to draw a
profitable analogy between Freudian
and Schopenhauerian beliefs, he
does not seem unduly enthralled by
Freud's emphasis on the Libido—
presumably It has no suitable counterpart in the philosophy of Schopenhauer. The sexus nexus (and
again we may be thankful) does not
enter into the structure of Mann's
bridge—though tt is hard to aee how
anyone, even were he to be the most
passionate of libidolaters,  could have (
"Should the reading publio be
given what It ought to have aa dally
newa, or ahould lt reoelve the type of
Journalism that lt wanta to read?"
That la a phaae of Journalism that
haa often pusaled us.
Considering It from the publisher's
point of view, it ls apparent that a
substantial circulation la neoeaaary
lor financial success. With an increased circulation, the publisher's
advertising value ls also Increased,
and providing that his advertisers
are numerous and punctual with payments, his publication is on a sound
financial basis.
To keep a reading public, the publisher must provide lt with Interesting material. How this material 1. presented to the public Is the keystone
of successful journalism. The paper
must be adapted to Its readers, and
If the latter are of a heterogeneous
nature, the style of writing, the angle
cf the story and the appearance of
the publication must be arranged so
that everyone ls pleased—at least
some of the time.
If the circulation Is assured, aa ln
the case of a small town paper with
Its nearest competitor three hundred
miles away, would that publication
be Justified In compelling its sub
scrlbers to read what they should
lead, and In suppressing perfectly
moral, humorously attractive articles,
just beoause they, the publishers, are
convinced that the articles are not
gems of literature destined for peter ity?
*      *      *
OUR PUBLIC
On the other hand, let us examine
the case of  the reading  public. This
introduced it successfully.
DER TOD IN VENEDIO
In Death in Venice, Mann skirts
another valuable field for inquiry:
Whether or not, in order to remove
the residuum of incompatible, which
remains after any attempt to approximate reality by analogy ln art,
lt Is necessary to distort the outlook
slightly, in order to try to compensate for the natural distortion imposed by nature on the intellectual
lenses we use when examining, and
evaluating, any appearance of veracity. "What wonder," he says (and
this is almost a commonplace) "that
through the approach of abnormality, we have succeeded in penetrating most deeply into the darkness of
human nature. (Cf. Hugo's L'Hum-
anite s'afnrme par 1'lnftrmlte.) Mann's
attltude towards the abnormal as an
Instrument of knowledge seem, almost to imply the necessity for intellectual perversity ln some degree,
to qualify, and perhaps ultimately
to correct, the distortion caused by
the inadequacies of our intellects
and by our limitations In space and
time.
Nietzsche, Baudelaire and Pascal
all come to mind—and bring vexation with them. For finally (and
here we must summon Miss Cavell),
Intellectual abnormality, while it
may in some cases set up an an astigmatism which partially compensates for our natural astigmatism, ia
not enough. More efficacious, but
rather too unpopular, are the alternatives reoommended by Miaa Cavell.

againat the Oanadlan Student Aaaem-
bly made In the last isaue of the
Ubyaaey. We oondemn this unqualified attaok on the organisation, on
admitted baaia of word from only one
email unlveralty, and we submit that
the oonferenoo waa democratically
conducted, and repreaented the opinions of thoae delegates preaent. At the
aame time, the local executive reserves any comment on the oontent
of the findings of the conferenoe.
The local executive supports the
statement of the national officials to
the effects that "the Mount Allison
statements are grossly fallacious,
anti-democratic and anti-Canadian,"
and that "the Maritime atudenta presented explicit minority opinions at
the conclusion of the conferenoe as
a whole."
In reply to the specific criticisms
of the laat Ubyssey, and ln view of
such serious misstatements as that
saying that the conference was led
by a strong French Canadian socialist
faction, we wish to make the following statements:
1. Concerning the charge that the
C.S.A. ls subversive, we wish to
point out that the conference was
supporting the policy of the King
government In their atand againat
conacrlptlon, and that the atatement oonoernlng the expeditionary
force was merely a corollary to tho
reaolution on ooneorlptlon, alnoe
the majority opinion at the oonferenoo, baaed on a consideration
of national unity and aerving the
best lntereata of Oanadlan democracy ln criala, waa that the sending ot a large expeditionary fore*
would lead inevitably to ooneorlptlon, as waa the oaae In the laat
war, due to the constant need of
replaniahing the ranks of a largo
Oanadlan army abroad.
3. The exeoutive conaldora the delegatee from our local oampua were
repreaentatlve of atudent opinion,
alnoe they were aeleoted by a oommittee of twenty-two leading atudenta chosen from all phaaea of
oampua life.
3. Since the vague wording of the
editorial ohargea againat the O.S.
A. oould be oonatrued aa an attaok
on the local organisation, we wish
to clarify the relationship between
the local and national organisations. The conferences are held for
the purpose of determining national policy on the basis of the
experlencea of the local assemblies,
and of furnishing the local assemblies with suggestions aa to program. The final determination of
programs, however, ia made by the
local student body.

Executive of the Oanadlan

brings us to the story of the horse,
which we have been trying to introduce for four paragraphs.
The proprietor of the horse told
the man next door, who had been
complaining about the rain, that one
could  accustom oneself to anything.
"Indeed?" replied the neighbour
with polite Interest. "And Just why
are you so sure of,that?"
"Oh," replied the owner of the
horseflesh, "I had a horse that was
used to 'most everything. In faot it
was Just getting used to living without eating, when lt died."
And so it is with the subscriber.
He may be compelled to read what
he has no desire to read and about
subjects ln which he has no interest,
he may improve his literary taste,

he'll miss lt If he doesn't get lt. But
he'll try missing lt flrst.

CONFERENCE LEFTOVERS
Everybody conferred during the
vacation. Among them was that
young, vital, important, and worthwhile organisation, the Canadian
University Press, (If you have any
doubts, compare it with the Associated Collegiate Press which holda
sway south of the border.) The staff
of the McOlll Dally thought that thia
was a marvellous opportunity to get
a lot of good "copy," ao they aent a
freshman reporterette to Interview
a western editor (whatever that la)
and get some Interesting material.
She bumped into Ed Parker of The
Manltoban.
"Oh, Mr. Parker, I want to Interview you." Ed was willing.
"Have you any proportional student Problems?" He had never heard
of them. "Oh, that Is a phrase of
my own. Here we have a certain
proportion   of   French-speaking   atu
denta and a oertaln proportion of
English-speaking students. Have you
any proportional problem with regard to cowboys and Indiana?"
"Well, the oowboya are almoat
negligible In comparison with the
number of Indians."
"Oh, isn't that Interesting?" The
pencil flew over the paper and an
angelic smile covered the freahman
countenance. "Tell me," she asked tn
a confidential tone, "Is Roderick
Hunter, your student president, a
full-blooded one?"
FORMALLY  INFORMAL

Psychology Laboratory Now
In Former A. M. S. Office
Another significant advanoe In*
U.B.C.'s progress ln the world of
solenoe was heralded this week with
the laying of plans for a full-fledged
psychology laboratory on the seoond
floor of the auditorium building.
Here, ln the vaoant board room
onoe devoted to the business meetings of the Alma Mater Sooiety, the
Department of Philosophy and Psychology, with spaoe temporarily allocated for U.B.C.'s first psychology
laboratory, laid out Its hopes at the
flrst week for the muoh needed laboratory. Suoh a laboratory would
give B.O. an opportunity to weloome
Dr. 8. D. Porteus, world' famous
psychologist from Hawaii, to the
oampua this summer as one of the
two universities In Canada equipped
with proper laboratory faoiltties In
Psychology.
The only other university In Canada now equipped with adequate
lab facilities for researoh and training In solsntlflo method In this
branoh of the aolenoes la Toronto.
If the new allooatlon beoomes permanent following administration discussions, B.O. students will, for the
flrat time In history, be able to do
advanoed work in their own provlnoe. Suoh advanoed work waa advocated two yeara ago by Dr. Florence Mateer, visiting aummer aea-
aion lecturer whoae work in her own
p.yohologloal ollnlo In the United
Statea Is almost unequalled In her
field of Payohology.
The Inatltutlon of a payohology
laboratory will thua open many new
flelda for U.B.C. atudenta and add
Immeasurably to the University's
aoademio standing in vital branoh
of the solenoe.
With registrations In the eight
psychology oourses here now over
600, the development In thia field of
work at U.B.C. during the paat live
yeara has been so amaalng aa to
outstrip all praetloal means of supplying facilities so far. Slnoe 1984-
30 some five new psychology oourses
have been added to the ourrioulum,
mainly under the Inspiration of Dr.
Jos.ph E. Morsh, whll. Psychology
3 and Payohology 4 were developed
along new Unas In 1988 from the
older and more general oourses Philosophy 8 and Philosophy 0. Within
the laat year two new oourses have
been added, Psychology A and Psychology 7, and It la hoped that the
Increaaing intereat In the department will soon make possible the addition of other oourses with speolal
applications to speoiflo flelda of
work.
Already the Department of Commerce has advocated certain of the
courses, while interest in tbe work
has also been definitely shown by
such downtown business organisations aa the Retail Credit Association whloh maintains special psychology classes of Its own at the preaent time. Within this category of
interest it is hoped that it will aoon
be possible to institute course. In
personal psychology and in further
laboratory work, while vocational
guidance, mental testing and other
fields applicable to city school ln
Vanoouver are to be considered at
some future date, according to members of the Department of Psychology.
At the present time there are approximately 18 special olasaes for
subnormals In Vancouver school,
while needs for guidance and treatment of mental teatlng are becoming
dally more complex, It _ haa been
learned by atudent claaaea on field
trip in the last few weeka, and the
need for advlaor In special problem
cases ln the schools la becoming increasingly apparent. In thla field

Once again student opinion raises*
its drowsy head from oaf tables, from
library books, even from forbidden
conversation In leotures, this time to
discuss Student Council's ruling that
the opening danoe In the Union
building will be formal for co-eda and
dreas optional for men.
The danoe waa to have been formal
but In recognition of the flght put
up by the three oounoil membera who
wanted It Informal, the optional
clause waa brought In.
On being quiased, some students
voiced the opinion that formal affairs
ore glamorous but not practical.
Othera would merely like oounoil to
make up their collective mind and
state that the danoe will be either
one thing or another, but not—Just
anything.
Irene Jenkins—I think It's foolish.
Why don't they make up their
minda ao that we'll know what
to do?
Bill Olen—Formal dancea are far too
expenalve for the general student
body, with the result that Just a
certain group of people attend all
social affairs.
Emily Fraser—The last affair which
was formal with dreas optional
was the Senior Olass Party, and
lt was messy. Formals are more
fun but they arouse serious transportation problems. I think that
with so many people coming it
would be better to have the dance
absolutely Informal.
Harry Home—It doesn't make any
difference to me. I'll have to go
Informally becauae the fellow
from whom I borrow a tux will
probably want to wear it himself.
Val Oardlner and Connie Falrlelgh—
Since it is the formal opening
with Mart Kenney and all, It
should be a super, super affair.
However, since the majority of
the men have not tux but the
majority of women have long
dresses, we think that lt should
be that the men will wear dark
suits and the girls long dresses.

The - basketball team were not
cheated out of their thirty-five dollars, as reported here on Tuesday,
because the money didn't belong to
them in the flrst plaoe. An A.M.S.
practice is that 30% of all gate receipts from games played in the
Gymnasium is automatically taken
for gym rental UNLESS A SPECIAL,
MINUTE IS PASSED BY STUDENT'S  COUNCIL.
Needless to relate, no special minute was obtained by the Senior Manager of basketball, and consequently
the money was taken, as per Instructions, for the rental and upkeep
of the gym.
Authorities state that if the cooperation of the baaketball managers had been forthcoming, If those
managers who have been asking for
more basketball strip, had obtained
that special minute and drawn up a
supplementary budget asking that
the money uaed to that effect, Counoil would have unanimously agreed,
to  such  a disposition  of the  money.
More than this, despite their
claims to the contrary, the basketball team did receive the money received from last year's Harlem game,
end an entry in Mr. Horn's books
will prove it. The money went
straight  into  their  budget.
These are the true facts—this time
—and if any of the eloquent hoopsters (and I can testify to that eloquence) wish to confirm this, I advise them to call on Mr. Horn up in
the  A.M.S.  office.
Ho might start to tell them to
manage a basketball team, and then
they would learn something. I did.
Never  again.
they had to dlaoard their aone defense to do it. They had to battle,
scrap, shove, heave, and generally
rough It up, but they beat the Angels
at their own game, and did It well.
BAD START
Led by the somewhat sadistic McLaughlin, Angelus ran up an early
lead, and made the Thunderbirds
look like Juvenile stuff. They threw
wild passes, blundered around the
floor, being constantly suoked In by
the long-shooting Angels.
Joe Pringle saved the day for
the collegians by marshalling the
squad, and sparking them with two

Alexander on the floor also helped

i More than matching the feats of
the Hotelmen, the -Birds were able
to pull up to within three points
at the halt time whistle, when the
soore board read »4-M still for the
visitors.
Dropping thslr sone defense whloh
was not capable of holding the Irrepressible McLaughlan, and playing man to man, the Collegians took
heart when Jim Scott, lanky rookie
from Chllllwaek found the range
and began to click, along with
Pringle.
SCOTT SHINES
At this point, too, the close checking of both teams began to take Its
toll, with players becoming incensed
at the dirt handed out. Pat Flynn
was foroed from the floor before the
third quarter was over with four
fouls, and Doug Lee of Angelus followed him shortly.

league game, tomorrow, nt Kerrisdole Park.
The Legion aggregation la flrat
cou.ln to the boya Varsity were to
have met last week, and though It
won't be quite aa aweet for the campusmen to register a win. It certainly won't do them any harm.
Last time the two team, met in
the third game of the season, the
reault waa a 1-1 stalemate with the
Blue and Oold unlucky not to defeat
their opponents.
CLOSE BATTLE
Tomorrow It ahould be just as
close a battle, for with at least one
and poaalbly two Juniors coming up
to senior ranks, and Temoln and Stu
Todd out of the lineup for good and
all, Charlie Hltchens isn't at all sure
what his charges are going to achieve.
However, at a workout yesterday,
several combination plays were tried
out with good results, and if they
click as well tomorrow, there should
be aome long faces In the Legion
beer parlor after the game.
Meanwhile, the ineligible bachelors
Stu Todd and Phil Temoln, will be
strengthening the Juniors in their
league game. Temoln will fill in at
centre forward, a position he played
for a few games with the seniors
before being asked to take over the
right wing assignment which he haa
filled   brilliantly  ever  since.
Stu Todd, formerly at left wing
for the students will be switched
over to right wing for the intermediates, while North and Hamilton are
the two rookies who will likely make
the Jump to senior company.

True to tradition, our Senior B's
loat their Wedneaday night prelim
tilt to Excelsiors. While high scorer
tor the other team tallied 18 points,
U.B.C., believe It or not, just didn't
have a high scorer I They did, however, have a score.
Not very far behind in the first
half, the co-eds were held scoreless ln
the second. It seems they are sadly
ln need of practices and play themselves out ln the early seconds of the
game. But keep your chins up, girls!
Team:    Florence    Howell,    Brenda
Phillips, Elisabeth Long, Jean Olllver,
Helen Brandt,  Lois Nicholson, Helen
