Fuehrer And
^X/agner Are
Impressing a capacity audience
with the similarity between Hitler
and Wagner, great Oerman composer,
Sir Ernest MacMillan opened another series of Vancouver Institute
lectures In the Auditorium Saturday
"Thero Is a strange faculty for
self-hypnosis Illustrated In Hitler
and Wagner," Sir Ernest explained.
"Theirs Is a not uncommon typo of
German philosophy whloh tends
toward self-examination and subjectivity."
The Fuehrer, the speaker continued, was enthralled with the composer's muslo from the flrst time he
heard "Lohengrin" at the age bf
Sir Ernest expressed the opinion
that. Hitler constantly identifies himself with many Wagnerian heroes.
For example, he said, the dictator
probably regards the present European condition as hts "Ooetterdam-
merung" with the whole continent a
funeral pyre—for Adolf Hitler.
doth men are victims of their egoism. Both men are untruthful beyond scruples. Both have written Inaccurate autobiographies. And both
hold antl-Semltlc views, though with
Wagner thla attitude was subordinate, Sir Ernest pointed out.
"Wagner was essentially a musician," he continued, "and as such he
will be remembered. As poet and philosopher, however, he was Inferior.
"Hitler   recently   stated   that   he
regards   himself   primarily   aa   an
artist. But one must remember that
the soul of an artist also lived In
the Emperor Nero!"
The strictly pro-Oerman outlook of
these men, and  that of all Oerman
philosophers was explained. "Suoh an
attitude,"  he continued, "makes one
compassionate to see a Christian nation degenerating Into a chosen people.

Radio Club May
Be Suspended
"The Radio Club may have to suspend , operations for an Indefinite
period," was the statement made at
Friday's meeting by Jack Thwaltes,
president of the club. When the war
broke out, the Government immediately suspended all amateur operators' licenses, and as a result of this
there is now little to keep the club
It waa suggested that the "hams"
study the military technique of operating,   but   this   suggestion   was
discarded    mm   Impractical,    for    It
would   be   very  difficult  to  find   a
person qualified to teach this.
The suspension of the club, which
last   year   handled   a   great   deal   of
news   for   the   Oanadlan   University

In National Emergency
Scholars Urged to Remain at College
But Co-Operate in Every Way Possible
By Canadian University Press
KINGSTON, Ont., Oct. 12.—Though students in all parts of
the country have been urged by the Dominion Government to remain at the University despite the present situation, and though
most students are replying with the request, the vast enrollment
in the various Officers' Training Corps and other units which are
being organized for national service throughout the country would
seem to indicate that Canadian students appreciate the allowance
being made them by the government and further that they are
fully aware of the gravity of the situation and are desirous of
ploying their part as best they may.

Anthropologist Describes
Studies of the Esquimaux
Arctic Life Pictured
By French Scientist
Romantic legends of life In the Arctic were dispelled for many a naive
British Columbian when the Vlacount
etc Ponclns spoke Wednesday noon
before a capacity audience of psychology   students.
The Viscount, eminent Frenoh
anthropologist and life member of
the Frenoh Geographical Society,
has just returned from the Arctic
after spending sixteen month*
amongat a group of completely unsophisticated natives on King William's Island.
He originally Intended to make
Coppermine his centre of operation,
but on his arrival there wtth the
"Bishop of the Wind", an air-minded
theologian, he discovered the Esquimaux tn that region had lost all value
for anthropological surveys through
their contact with clvlllatlon.
In pursuing his topic, "the Psychology of the Eaqulmaux", the
speaker dwelt on the child-like yet
dignified attitude of the natives,
who are, as regarda culture, aa op
posed to us as Is possible In two
groups of contemporary humanity.
Man's Insignificance and the terrific odds against him ln his struggle
for existence in such an environment
nre the things that Impress a stranger most, aald the Viscount.
The monotony and utter lack of
other forms of life make one wonder
if the whole phenomena of the civilized world ls not only a dream.
The   Eaqulmaux  aeem   to  be  the
perfect   exponents   of   communism.
The extreme rigour of life at fifty
below makea aharlng and oo-operatlon absolutely essential to survival.
Igloo dwelling  has  resulted ln  deformity, especially in the women, who
remain tor the most part inside the
low-roofed   snow    houses,   preparing
elementary   essentials  such   as   meat
and   skins.     The   women   are   valued
for   their    usefulness    and    strength
rather  than  their  beauty.
Viscount de Ponclns averred that
the happy temperament ls not nearly
so much a matter of climate as is
commonly believed. The Esquimaux,
in spite of their environment, are a
cheerful, uncomplaining race, accepting their hard lot with equanimity.
University Women
Registering For
War Service
University women ln all parts of
the Dominion are registering for war
service in accordance with a Domln-
ion-wide movement to obtain a survey of the capabilities of Canadian
women and to list those who wish to
secure specialized  training.
In British Columbia the week of
October 16th has been set aside for
tne Voluntary Registration of Canadian Women. By this plan the woman-power of Canada will be organized for national emergency.
All women between the ages of 16
and 68, of any race, may register
provided they are Oanadlan citizens.
Booths will be set up ln all electoral
districts and questionnaires provided.
All women students on the campus
are asked to All In one of the forms
which will be distributed from a table
at the entrance to the Women's
Common Room on the flrst floor of
the Arts Building on the mornings
of Monday and Tuesday, the 16th
and 17th of October. These registration forms are to be turned ln at
the Dean of Women's office on Wednesday, October 18th.
Those responsible for the compilation of the record wish it to be
clearly understood that a registration ia not a promlae of servloe. It
does not necessarily commit the
volunteer to a definite future oourae
of action, and registration doea not
olaah with memberahip in any other
The sole aim of this voluntary census ls to discover what the women of
Canada are able and willing to do.

In Toronto the training contingent ia experiencing activity typical
of 20 yeara ago and numbers more
than 1,600 including a large body of
grada. The campua literally swarms
with trainees for in addition to the
University units several city unlta
are training there as well. More than
00% of the male registration of
Queens have signified their intention of taking the military training
and the women of the university are
being organised into groups for work

direct students into that branoh of

In the Marltlmes similar preparation* are alao going on. The facilities and aervioea of the Extension
Department of St. John Francis Xavier University have been placed at
the disposal of the Dominion Oovernment; and the students have expressed their wllllngneaa and eagerness to co-operate ln national service plans In every possible way. At
the University of New Brunswick tho

military training are now in operation.

News of some value came floating into the office of the Publications Board the other day. It concerned a happy enterprise
entered upon by the fraternities of the campus.
The novel undertaking is a smoker for men, with the date sot
for October 24. Since it is hoped that homecoming celebrations
will be staged during the same week-end, the smoker will be a
homecoming attraction for the grads and undergrads together.
Freshmen,however, will not be admitted.
The mere faet that the fraternities are taking it upon themselves to arrange a function for men of the university is most commendable, but the present scheme of turning the profits over to the
Brock Building is almost unbelievably delightful. The fraternities
are certainly to be congratulated.
The funds for the Brock Building ond the furnishings nre not
exactly unlimited, ond any possibility of increasing tho qunntity
of gold in the Brock Building coffers is welcomed by those in control. What is more important is that such organizations ns fraternities have long been looked to as possible sources of such revenue, for it is obvious that fraternities aro well suited to raising
money in many different ways. Their feminine counterparts have
proved that!   Here, then, is the answer of fraternities.
But to return to the Smoker, we, the male students of the campus, must see that the project is well supported. It is unlikely
that it will be a failure if the attractive programme is considered.
Smoker "attractions" of the conventional type will be presented
midst roars of applause, with the charming young ladies, presumably clothed in moonbeam and imagination, gambolling nimbly
around the hazy Palomar. Doubtless, too, refreshments of an appropriate character will be served—similarly amid roars of applause, and .... etc.
The fraternities have shown initiative in proposing such an admirable function for a homecoming festivity, and have displayed
more than normal zeal in undertaking to sponsor the entire smoker.
Grads and students, give the smoker your attention, and your
Military circles on the Campus have been quite perturbed
over a certain lack of respect on the part of the students for
officers of the Canadian Officers' Training Corps. Uniformed
students, it appears, have been ridiculed by civilian scholars in
the Caf.
Total absence of manners has long been an unfortunate
characteristic of tho students of this Campus, particularly when
under the influence of the relaxing Cafe atmosphere. There is
still no reason, however, for the adolescent behaviour of jesting
about a man in a military uniform.
[Were it exhibitionism that prompted the students in the
CO.T.C. to wear their uniforms during the day, there might be
some cause to make light of their appearance, but it is comparatively obvious, even to tho youngest of students, that uniforms
are worn to lectures by those students who do not have time to
return to their homes after lectures or labs in order to change
into the dress required for evening parades.
There is, however, one objection whieh must be voiced. Any
officer, or embryo officer, should realize that a hat is not intended
to be worn in a dining room—not even in the University Caf.
If the student officers pay a little more attention to their own
appearance and general behaviour, the students will soon learn
to tolerate them, and perhaps to admire them.
Notices from all the clubs, societies, athletic teams, classes,
spinsters, landladies, and eligible bachelors of the campus pour
into the office of the Ubyssey every day, and more particularly on
Press Days, to wit, Mondays and Thursdays.
Little do the ingratiating people bearing notices realize the
amount of work whieh has to be done to a notice before it ultimately appears in the columns of tho papor.
If a notice is scrawled illegibly across a scrap of paper, which
is itself microscopic, there is no doubt that the notice will be printed incorrectly. If the notice is merely scrawled illegibly, the possibility of error in printing is very great. If the notice, in addition
to those calamities, is handed in some two hours after the deadlines, there is every chance of nothing finding its way into the
The clubs blame the Ubyssey for any apparent lack of co-operation, and claim that the activity concerned is being stifled because
the staff of the campus newspaper is prejudiced. The truth regarding notices has just been given.
Hand in club notices—or any other notices—by 10.30 a.m. on
Press days, with tho 'copy' typed out on a visible piece of paper,
and the Ubyssey will do the rest.
-Notice of any arrangements to be
made by Mamooks must be -given

At present 108 water colors, drawings and canvaaes by Mr. J. L, Shad-
bolt tastefully decorate two upper
rooma of the Art Gallery. These are
the work of one lightning year.
The thematic variety whioh Is obviously the keynote of the exhibition has some difficulty In overcoming the effect of the uniformity In
treatment, whloh, though not Immediately apparent, dominates a
good many of the compositions.
Aa a summary of Mr. Shadbolt's
latest developments, the exhibition
shows a vigor which tends to run
rather lush. When the artlat haa
suppressed this tendency he has
managed to soore some rather agreeable technical successes, chleflly in
his drawings, where the medium has
not favored his urge to luxuriate.
Some of his mutations are not
quite as felicitous. Two of the nudes

Dear Sir,
Having Juat read the flrst Item ln

three students of the University of
Saskatchewan, wish to affirm our
faith In our fellow Saskatchewanite.
We will treat the ten to one odds

if our Huskies win, we will expeot
your budding member of His Majesty's fighting forces to step magnanimously aside and leave our heartsick compatriot to his Just deserts.

Although six students took part In

have accepted full responsibility. We
would be very grateful to you, as

"Roll out the barrel," yelp the
Soccermen thia week, and not without aome Justification. For laat Saturday they had West Van on the
run to the tune of a 8-1 win and this
coming week-end they hope to repeat
the prooess at the expenae of Kerrisdale Legion.
For those of you who are interested in witnessing the oontlnuation of

we might point out that the neat

Vlaltlng Amblealde over the
Thanksgiving wsekend, the Blue
and Gold Insteppers Isft no doubt
as to thslr. superiority In the minds
of ths local fandom. Although there
was no soore In the flrst half of tho
contest, the collegians were pressing
almost throughout and seldom was
their goal In danger. Outstanding ln
this canto was Jaok Rush, who ran
the West Van oentre forward to a
frassle, and rookie fullback Stew
Roach, who was carting them far
and hard all afternoon.
The orosaover saw Varsity finally
take command, and tt was no surprise when PhU Temoln, former
Western Monarch atar, craahed a
alzzler at the Merchant'a citadel
which the enemy goalie Just failed
to hold. The score followed a con-
atant bombardment and was the Immediate reault of aome amart work
by left-halt Fred Saaakl.
A few minutes later Temoln again
made good on a paaa from the left
to put the campuamen two up and
well on the way to their flrat victory. A anap goal from a scrimmage
by Basil Robinson with IS minutes
to go put the Issue beyond doubt and
the disputed penalty goal registered
by one Angelo Perrl waa merely a
dying flicker.

When the Mainland Rugby League

Rowing Club In a olose oontest.
Right winger Chapman's big boot
spelled the difference between victory and defeat as he contributed
Ave points with a long penalty kick
from thirty-flve yards out, and the
conversion of Ted MoPhee's try.
McPhee's try, Incidentally, oame as
the result of the best three-quarter
run of the day. It started from about
forty yarda out, and after aome
amooth paaalng and a flashy break
by Richarda, MoPhee carried it over
for the acore.
The threes, however, had little
chanoe to make much distance, aa
the acrum couldn't seem to get the
ball out, especially In the flrat half.
They were clearly outweighed, which

Both forwarda and threea lacked
that acoring punch. Time and again
they were "knocking at the RoWer'a
door" but they Juat couldn't aeem to
puah the ball over. The extra weight
of the Rowera waa felt in the aecond
half, and after Covernton aoored
on a aeventy yard run, the atudenta

Coach Carey promises aome stiff
workouts this week ln preparation
for tomorrow's game with Ex-Britannia. It should see an Improved
team, with the new men settling
down to a ateady game now that
they have a game under their belts.
The three lines will be revamped
for the game, bringing together
three ex Lord Byng stars, Carl
Chapman, Ormle Hall, and Ted MoPhee. All three boys have plenty of
apeed, and having played together
before, should make things hot for
the Ex-Britannia lads.
The starting line-up will  be:
Sorum i Evan Davies, Tom Mo-
laohan, Allen Wallace, Fred Billings,
Alec Urquhart, Tommy Robaon,
Craig MaePhee, Buck MoKlnnon.
Sorum Half! Sandy Lang.
Five Elghtha: Jerry Wood.
Three-quarters! Carl Chapman,
Ted MoPhee, Ormle Hall, Alec Prioe.
Fullback! Bert Hosklns.
Orohlds to Robson for a great
game. A hustler on the offence and
sure tackier on defence, he gave the
Rowera plenty of trouble. Ditto to
Chapman for awell kicking and
anappy offenatve play, and to Hosklns for sure defence work,
Oerry Mason is baok on the Campua, which ia making Coach Carey
amile, for the light acrum can certainly uae him. Alao reported returning ia Askew, at present on Ex-Britannia. His brilliant play tbere ensures him a berth on the three line.
Although Jimmy Stinaon'a U.B.C.

they will have a greatly strengthened team to cope -with the auperlor

they meet in the flrat game of a

The Ubeecee lineup will be composed of Jack Bingham, Oordon

The Knlghta were rated by ex
perts as the team to beat in the
league, but wilted under the charge
of a dynamite-laden Varsity forward
The Kaycees thoroughly baffled
Varsity in the opening minutes of
play with long sweeping end runs
from a quick snap and shift. Coming
out of the huddle the Knights shifted to one aide wtth only one man on
the weak side of the line.
Unfortunately, the Kayceea had no
other play other than thia end run,
and were unable to mix up their
thrusts. Conaequently, the Varaity
board of strategy was able to play
the front line wide, and shift It with
the snap.
