Item, allowed to meander about
the UBC campus, gathers just a-

Correspondents for the downtown papers started a snowball

Paul Bunyan.
Phoned at noon by their city editors to check on the new regulations for Artsmen, they let different sized cats out of different
sized bags and by the middle of
the afternoon Artsmen were In the

SPC Violates
AMS Ruling
On Program
• STUDENT Council has
termed the recently distributed Social Problems
Club programs as non-essential literature, which should
not have been issued according to the AMS'code.
The code states that no publication shall be distributed on the
campus without the sanction of
the Council, all literature being
presented to the students through
the medium of the student newspaper.
At the Council meeting of February 14, an agreement was reached whereby the distribution of the
qffending literature was to be

Toy Ttotn
Science Ball
• MINIATURE TRAINS pushing trainloads of ore through
a papier-mache mountainside won
the coveted mystery prize at the
Science Ball for the best decorated table. The display was built
by the Dawson Club, composed of
the miners, geologists, and metallurgists.
The mountainside was honeycombed with tunnels, through
which small ore trains (horribly
reminiscent of the main attraction
of Woodward's toyland) rushed at
a fast clip. These trains periodically came out into the open to
discharge their cargo at the local
ball mill.
Once during the evening a dense
cloud of siaoke emerged from the
lnnncl. The Dawsonites claimed
that this was merely the fumes
from a blast >vt off to make the
display  more  vivid.
For their diligence the boys
were rev. vdeel with the traditional

• A  POULTRY   Nutrition  Research House is being built on
the Agricultural grounds. This
building is being constructed by a
special grant from the Department
of Agriculture on the recommendation of Dr. K. C. McDonald,
Minister of Agriculture.
Part of the cost of construction
is being defrayed by Dr. Chalmers
of Western Chemical Industries
Limited. The current expenditure
is provided by Dr. McDonald and
the Surrey Cooperative Association, Cloverdale.
Canada has ln the past few
years been Influenced a great deal
by the United States in regard
tc her feed for hens and chicks.
Because the U. S. A. has a great
surplus of maize they naturally
use this as a base for their chicken
Canada, because she has no such
great surplus, has had to import
quantities of maize from the U.
S A., but it has been discovered
that a diet of fish meal and wheat,
both of which are abundant in
Canada, produces good results on
young chicks. The cost per ton
is also considerably less than
where normal Ingredients are used.
The purpose of this nutrition
house will be to feed the chicks
this new diet and observe the effects on the growing and laying
of the birds. The building consists of eight separate compartments.

Dear Sir,
I hearby submit my resignation

McLelland feels that, considering

Spring   Cor "erence   on   food   and
agriculture,   Dean   of  Agriculture,
R. D. Sinclair, was optimistic over
the solution of world nutritional
problems. He pointed to enthusiasm of the Hot Springs Conference.
"This same good feeling," he
said, "might mark deliberation of
similar  future  gatherings."
The speaker discouraged the
idea of agricultural planning in
closing bureaucratic control on
farmers. When questioned by Miss
Rosemary Stewart, he emphasized
that no farmer would be told what
to grow and where to grow it.

From ThejEditor's Pen « « »
New Regulations
-be compared as to their essentiality with
Pregard to war effort?
The relative value of a student graduating in Commerce, and one graduating in
Arts with majors in Economics and history
is raised again by the Manitoba students. It
is their contention that the latter "are necessary to the efficient administration of the
war effort and in the reconstruction period
both here and in Europe."
It is a difficult decision to make and one
which will arouse criticism in all branches
of the university, no matter what it may be.
According to the regulations as stated in
the release to the mobilization boards, fifty
percent of all physically fit Arts students of
every year will be forced to drop their
courses and be drafted into the army.
This restriction seems unfair, in that
some classes will have a higher general average than others, and students who cannot
maintain their superiority in one, may still
be better students than those in other
courses who are allowed to remain. Therefore, as The Manitoban states, there is discrimination against Arts, certain parts of
Science and Law.
The suggestion has been made that a
tightening up of restrictions on academic
standards of the university as a whole, and
registration for certain courses would be a
fairer means of choosing who is to be allowed to study, and who is to be drafted.
Until definite releases, applying directly
to this university are available from the
local mobilization board, we can make no
criticisms of the regulations with regard to
Latest releases from the National Selective Service portend a stiffening of requirements for students in Arts at the University
of British Columbia.
Press releases applying directly to this
university alone have not been given out
yet, but it is expected that the regulations
for UBC will be somewhat the same as those
of eastern colleges, but will be subject to
interpretation by the local mobilization
Commenting on the new regulations released to the University of Manitoba, Dr.
Smith, president, said that the statement was
important in that it constituted a recognition
of the valuable work being done by the students in the higher brackets in courses leading to a degree of Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor
of Science in General Course, or Bachelor
of Laws.
President Smith also remarked that
these new regulations are for the benefit of
the nation, not for the university and its
male students.
However, The Manitoban raises the
question of the fairness of the regulations
when an Arts student is required to attain
certain academic standards, and yet those
in essential courses have no standard set by
regulations. Are the Arts students to be
discriminated against, and the other students
allowed to remain at university with a mere
passing average?
Can such courses as Commerce be considered to produce more technically trained
personnel than a "non-specialized" course in
Science?   Can these two types of courses

Home Ec. Degree
Offered. Committee
To Decide on B.Sc.
• BACHELOR  of   Home   Economics degree will be awarded
to students on completion of four
years of the required course, it
was decided at the Senate meeting
Wednesday night.     ,
It was announced that neyt year,
third year Home Ec. courses will
be offered at U.B.C. In the '45-'46
term the complete course will be
made available with the addition
of fourth ycar courses.
• A discussion was also held on
the granting of B.Sc. degrees
to students in the pure sciences.
The subject was referred to committee for further discussion.

Although Students' Council is
our governing body, we all realize
that government regulations, military training and the "Administration" have greatly limited its
powers. In spite of this they have
brought about:
1. Employment Bureau
2. Athletic Insurance
3. Saving of $2000 by printing
new type passes
4. Inventory  savings
5. A free Totem
6. A free directory
7. More travelling expenses paid
(educational  as  well  as  athletic)
8. A concentrated effort to cut
down  overhead.
9. Greater use of the Brock
through efforts such as removing
restrictions, supplying magazines
and buying records.
10. Putting Council on better
terms   with   the   Administration.
(Few past councils have been able
to get the Auditorium balcony for
pep meets or the cooperation
shown during the "Religion and
Life"  conference.)
11. Reorganization of the accounting system so that a student can
run it, and obtaining the best
auditors report since the A.M.S.
12. Cooperation and financial aid
for new organizations such as the
new dance and concert orchestras, the chess club and the trainers club.
13. Paving the way for a "Grad
Manager" system in the A.M.S.
The latest front page letter
shows how, through our own paper likely, biased opinions can
travel even overseas.
When anyone fails in campu:)
Bctivities he blames the Council
for it. It is regrettable for the
reputation of our university and
council members themselves that
the latter are too overworked to
refute such statements. Admittedly the Council has shown somo
weaknesses, but we think that the
Ubyssey would admit that these
are by far offset by its good points.
These men and women are putting their hearts and souls into
improving campus conditions and
are doing a good job. More benefit will accrue from the action of
this year's council than from any
three previous Councils.

• (CUP) Toronto, February 16.
A total of $2,057.24 was announced yestrday by the Campus

of the way towards its quota of
$7,000 for student relief. This total

Co-Op. Association
Discusses Means
Of Cutting Costs
• AT THE first spring general
meeting  of  the  U.S.C.A.   the
leading question was that of revenue and costs. Until recently the
co-opers have been able to live
well for $25.00 a month but living
costs have Increased, and means
of cutting costs were discussed.
So that there will be a profit
this year, the meeting decided to
raise the cost of board to $27.00
a month for as long as it is necessary.
Another important item of business was the election of the general manager for the spring term.
The job went to Don Stevens, a
third year scienceman. At the
meeting were also elected the directors, both the student directors
and the three faculty directors.
Fifty Grad Gowns
Rented By Council
• NO LONGER will students
have to beg, borrow, or buy choir
boy surplices, churchly robes or
lawyers gowns for the graduation
ceremony. Council has authorized purchase of fifty new graduation gown3, which with the
fifty gowns already on hand will
make a pool of one hundred
gowns for grads to rent. The fee
this year will be lower than In
previous years, and will amount
to approximately fifty cents. As
yet purchase of the gowns is not
definite, depending upon the a-
\ailability  of  material  used.

able," he said, "because with the
great   Increase   of   regulation   oil
the fun is gone."
He revealed that the present Industrial development makes it impractical to expand hydro-electrk
development  In  this province.
Since cost of power forms a
small proportion of total cost of
industrial production, further development of hydro-electric power would not necessarily encourage establishment of new heav/
industries in this province.
It would be preferable, he maintained, to improve existing plants.
Dr, Carrothers outlined the work
of his commission and explained
that while a great deal of its
work has been concerned with the
B.C. Electric Company, there has
been considerable need for thc
analysis of differences arising out
of other independent utilities and
their consumers.
Basis of valuation, he concluded,
in the case of the B.C. Electric,
was cost of service to the consumer rather than historical or re-
pioduction cost. This tended to
moderate the claims of the company and thus effect a more
equitable settlement to all concerned.

• Off The Cuff
* WELL, THIS certain character has been home for over
two weeks now and it is about time that something was done
to put him in his place.
Imagine my embarassment when this citizen, no, I daren't
call him a citizen; I shall just refer to him as the tubby one,
imagine my embarassment I say, when after making with
the glad to see you stuff and pleading desperately with me
I consent to let this tubby one write a column for me.
Now, this alone is indeed a great honour to write a
column on the sport page because on this page it is printed
just twice as wide as an ordinary story and usually carries
a name at the top. Really big-time stuff, you know.
For reasons of security and safety this tubby one refrained from placing his name on his work of so-called art.
As I was saying, imagine my embarassment to find that
the tubby one had slandered the names of several fellows
who used to be students at our glorious University but have
now left for places far away.
And not only that, this tubby person had the unmitigated
gall and the downright effrontery to think that some of the
beets that he goes around with should be in such a position
as to laugh at others.
Just because Tubby and his group had a bit of luck this
year in certain matters and other groups had some misfortune
is no reason to gloat. The time will come, the time will come,
the time will come.
Campus politicians, that's all they are. Master politicians,
those Betas. But, nevertheless the time will come, as it says
But back to this tubby person, whose name must be
withheld for reasons of security known only to the Navy
and Welsford. Tubby will be sailing back to his little places
and stuff soon, in fact, almost right away, and I hope there is
no one there to see him off.
But I said that I would get back to this beet person and
if he doesn't like this or if he does like this then it is his
own business.
So, old goat, be on your way and next time when you
drop in for a bit of a fling at literature, nay, not that, shall
we say has, yes, hash, be sure that you watch what you are
So long, Tubby, and good luck. Bye, bye, Welsford.
