On Students
Over System
O "WE ARE VERY pleased with
the way the atudenta have
ttsed tho new library reserve system," Dr. Kaye Lamb, Librarian,
told  the  Ubyssey  Thursday.
When asked If there was anything that he would Uke to have
corrected, Dr. Lamb said that the
staff did not lntnd to change the
setup in the least. "Apart from
the first few days when we had
to stop a few students from using
the wrong doors I have only
caught one student going out the
way he  came in," he said.
"The system has been a help
both to students and staff ln that
a great deal of useless bookkeeping and delay has been eliminated,"   he  explained.

O A NEW SHOW of the V. S. C.
Radio Society was Inaugurated
Wednesday evening, when Al Miller and Don MacMillan of the
local Radio Club staff appeared
as guest ar^sts on Ross Mortimer's
regular Sports Review, from CJOR. Connie Dlerson, Varlslty's
cheer-leader and newly-appointed

during the  program.
The Radio Club's "Varsity

AMS Office
Explains Fee
O WHERE DOBS aU our money
go? Every year, when fee paying tlmo rolls around, thla question
seems to bother each student on
the campus. There la a tendency
for the student body to look upon
the thirteen dollars paid Into the
A.M.S.  with  great suspicion.
The following report gives an
approximate idea of how the money is spent. First, three dollars ls
turned over to the Toronto Oeneral Trust Co. toward retiring the
bonds on Brock Hall. Another sum
of three dollars goes Into the pass
system. Of the remaining seven
dollars, about $2.77 per peraon
goes into administration. This includes office salaries, maintenance
oi' the complicated telephone system, legal and audit feea and many
other expenditures.
On the basis of laat year's report,
$1.10 of the remaining $4.23 went
Into the men'a athletics. The women's athletics spent 21 cents.
Men's baaketbaU took up 2? eenta
per person laat year.
The Publications Board uaed
about $1.60 and the reat of the
thirteen dollars went Into grants
to other societies and incidental
O BOOKWORMS have forced the
Library to hang out the "Standing Room Only" at one o'clock,
lt was learned yesterday from library officials.
An attendant of the library admitted the evident fact that there
ls a phenomenal overcrowding.
She attributed this not to studying for mid-terms but believed
that the students have finally adjusted themselves to a world at
war. She thought that last year
when the Library was not used
extensively at this time of year
that the students were worrying
more about the -war to the neglect   of   their  studies.
Lack of campus residences make
It imperative that students go
somewhere, but this official expressed surprise that Brock HaU
has not taken care of more students who go to the library to
keep  out  of  the rain.
Pin Sales Improved-
Better Varsity Spirit
e SALE OF U.B.C. pins and pennants so far this year is
showing considerable improvement over the same period last year, giving the lie to the assumed lack of Varsity
spirit. Last year at this time 71 pins and 3 pennants had
been sold. This year 81 pins and 7 pennants have been demanded.
But there are still many persons *mm**m**^****w**********.^^^^^^^***^
on the campus who shake their
heads blankly when asked If they
have pins, as Ida Francis, a Kappa
Alpha Theta, who exclaimed, "I
don't know. Why, should I be
wearing one? I never thought a-
bout it."
Jean Beveridge, cautious freshette, told the Ubyssey she -wants
one, but is going to wait tlU she
knows if she's bounced at Christmas or not, before she risks her
Ed Gross, Vice-president, of the
Psychology Club, hasn't bought
one, mainly because, in the three
years he's been attending Varsity,
he hasn't found out where they
■were sold. He voices the well-
justifled complaint that they aren't
publicized enough on the campus.
The pins and pennant.- are on
sale at the A.M.S. office, In the
Brock. Pins are SOc and pennants
are $2.00. Page Two

U. S. College at War
Today we are re-printing an editorial
which appeared Thursday, October 80> 1941,
in the University of Washington D*Uy supporting the university's Defense CMgt campaign. We are printing thla editorial for
two reasons—primarily to show the attitude
of students in a country not at war in the
present conflict, and secondarily, to show
how that attitude has changed in the last
two years.
In the fall of 1939 students at Washington very definitely expressed their stftnd a-
gainst America's entry into the war in a
campus-wide poll. The Ubyssey ran a banner story explaining in detail the points upon which the American students had taken
their position of isolation.
Now we feel that U.B.C. can take the
University of Washington's war effort as an
example of how to really go all-out for the
war, besides keeping football games and
other university traditions as a part of its
The war, so far away from moat
of us, comes closer today. It comes
so close, ln fact, that It'a right on
the campus. This ls the day we
go "all out" for the Greater Seattle
Defense Chest.
If this doesn't bring our part In
the war closer to us, nothing wlU.
It should be brought forcefully before us that while we are peacefully studying, our friends drlU in
the ranks, and the smoke of every
factory tells a story of the defense
effort behind It.
We hate war and everything
connected with lt. But ln a troubled world lt ls true there may be
Uttle choice, and our future may
be determined by what we find
In our hearts and minds to do
now. , ,,,
Thla la where we come in. We
can and muat do our part In the
Defenae Cheat drive.   No one can
criticize the aima of the drive. It
is only the lethargy, that lackadaisical feeling about it that we
must fight.
Let us remember that our government and our people are inescapably on the road to war. We
know it is a dangeroua road, for
down that road we keep stumbling
over the stragglers who refuse to
keep pace with the rest. If that
were not ao, the road would not
be so dangeroua.
Co-operation ls the only answer,
and we must part with some of
our individual desires else wc
compromise the effort ot our
country as a whole. You wlU be
asked to do your part today and
tomorrow, and thereafter until we
face a happier world.
Until then we must aU do our
part. We start with the Cheat

Seeing Ourselves
Today there is to be found in the equipment of British Boys sent to the United
States for flight training a little book issued
by the British Government, entitled ''Notes
for Your Guidance." The book presents .in
concise form an analysis of the American
way of life, with emphasis on those qualities
which are in such marked contrast to customs and thought in the Old World. Its
purpose is to dispel any prejudice which the
visitors might feel toward a country so like
and yet so different to their own and to establish an impartial basis of comparison and
Many of the observations regarding
custom, temperament and cultural values
might apply equally well to Canadian life.
One statement, however, struck me particularly forcibly. "In America, culture is left
mainly to the women." I imagine that we
would have to admit the truth of this statement for Canada also. Certainly we are
still labouring against the prejudice which
draws a sharp line of distinction between,
on the one hand, the successful business
man and the rugby hero and, on the other,
the slightly strange male Interested in the
Arts. This prejudice is, no doubt, a legacy
of daring pioneer days. Today, under normal conditions, there is little scope left for
the "where men are men" way of living and
thd adventure of breadwinning can scarcely
be regarded as a satisfying substitute.
There is no denying, however, that we
Canadians are gradually waking up to our
need for cultural things. Unfortunately we
are not neary insistent enough and we patiently endure the discord of tawdriness
which pours upon us from all sides. We are
a generation of violent extremes. We swing
with the agility of trapeze artist from Flag-
stad to Dot Lamour, from Charlie Chaplin
to Charlie McCarthy, from the Ballet Russe
to the violence of the jitterbug. We are
deafened by a "juke box" in every coffee
shop and our neighbours let pour the sultry moanings of radio singers into cur gardens. Perhaps there is a place for caviar
and coke in life but can our values stand up
to the constant bombardment to which they
are being subjected, ?
That we are beginning to sense our need
is evidenced by a growing demand for values
that will stand the test. We have only to
look about us in Vancouver to realize this.
Yet it is still left to the enterprise and support of a small minority to keep these things
alive. If we look closer to home—to our
campus life—we see a parallel situation.
Here a number of groups are doing great
things in promoting these worthwhile things.
I wonder sometimes whether we appreciate
sufficiently their potential influence on Campus life. Students in recent years have been
far too easily satisfied by cheap entertainment. By giving all cultural ventures undertaken on the Campus willing and intelligent support the students today are helping
to create an atmosphere of refinement which
should be the mark of maturity.
It seems to me in considering the cultural activities of the students that they are
perhaps too closely bounded by the geographical limits of the campus. There appears
to be little exchange in these things between the City and the student body. One
is conscious of few students at the Symphony
Concerts or other major attractions. I very
much doubt wether more than a small proportion of students have seen anything more
of the Art Gallery beyond the two busts at
the entrance. All this seems to me a pity.
Perhaps it is not entirely the fault of the
student. Perhaps the tickets for many concerts are priced too high for the purse of the
average student. Rush seats seem to be
coming scarcer. Yet University " students
should not be missing these things. I have
often wondered whether local cultural organizations could not lend the student more
support in this respect by providing a very
small number of tickets at strictly "student
rates" to be sold on presentation of a student pass. Perhaps it is a financial impossibility in these times. Perhaps, however, it
would be a good investment for the future.
In the meantime any effort that can be
made to bring together groups—whether
campus or City—with this common aim is
to be welcomed. As a people we are growing up. It is time wo put aside childish

• IT WAS NEARLY three years
ago when a group of Canadian
University students met In Eastern Canada to dlacuss problems of
university   students.
That was the Ul-fated Canadian
Stv.dent Assembly conference that
was branded "subversive' by college  editors from  coast to coast.
C.S.A. was suspended that year
—and along with it several rathe-
good suggestion.! for improving
university   courses.
Ono that appealed to me at the
time, and In the light of four year3
of lectures, still does, centred
around their criticism of the lecture  system.
Of the situation In Applied
Science, and ln Agriculture 1 know
little — but with regards to Arts,
I should say without reserve, that
the system stinks.
There ls no earthly reason why
anyone.freahman or senior, should
be compelled to sit in a lecture
room and scrlble for solid hours
at a time, while a professor literally  dictates  from  his  own notes.
Especially, when it Is so evident
that nothing Is to be lost by skipping these lectures. Borrowing
notes ls common practice; "getting
though" is as far as most undergraduate minds want to travel.
There Is almost no attempt to
make the student think for himself, ancl, more Important, to havo
hltn try his opinions out on fellow   students.
Last year, I took a course, advertised by the department in
question, as the most aggressive,
thought-provoking course on record.
But   how   was   it   handled?
You, yourself, can fill In this
blank. Two lectures a week, tho
professor dictated — it was actual
dictation — his notes to us. He
came into the room, wrote the
subject head on the board, and
launched into his dictation. He
told us when to paragraph, when
to underline,  and when to a, b, c.
You scribbled hard for fifty
minutes, and at the lecture's end
knew not   what   you  had   written.
It was, actually, one of the most
enjoyable courses I have taken,
not however, because of the lectures, but rather because several
of us In the Pub. were taking it

Yesterday a student from Brock
HaU came Into the office wanting
to get some cards, ln vain. Shortly after ho returned with a co-ed
who said she would have to study
if they could not secure a deck
of  cards.
They offered to put a down payment on a pack of cards but were
told again that the Pub did not
handle them. Studenta cannot get

Council Backs Out
Game Postponed
O THE WORST FEARS of Pubsters were realized _t a late
hour yesterday when Council reneged their basketball engagement
with the paper otaff. The dirty
nine backed down, postponing the
game   Indefinitely.
The Pub In the gallant manner
which has Vulded Its policy in regard to Council throughout the
years, refused to claim victory by
default. "The game" insist Pubsters,   "must   go   on."
Ted McBride, instigator of CouncU policy, is blamed for the jaundiced attitude o'* his group. Master
politicians to the core, Council was
not without an excuse for their
postponement. They claim that the
gym Is being used Friday noon
by another group. The result of
a prearrangement of the most odious sort, this subterfuge Is typical  of  past  evasions.
Ignominious defeat, the inevitable lot of the Councilmen will
be deferred but not foregone.
Council's vigorous athletic program has failed to put them ln
shape for the proposed  battle.
Unwilling to admit defeat or
fear. Council preferred postponement to the ignominy of cancelling the historic event which as
is universally known can end in
no way except  in  their  defeat.

•    I AM JUST A TRIFLE "afraid" of this assignment.
The idea of guest columning for an audience 1500
miles removed frightens me. The "Inspiration" waan't a
personal one. Honours for that go to Harry Franklin, regular conductor of "For Men Only" and a good friend from
high school days. When he asked me, who was I to turn
him down?
* *   *    *
Harry sent me several copies of your paper to give
me just an inkling of what might be appropps, for which I
am grateful, but it didn't take me long to realize that the
athletic situation in Vancouver and in this area ia surprisingly
Here our war effort is still that of a giant racing ear
being primed for a gruelling run. We have just begun to
feel the pinch. Let no one be fooled into believing however
that the national defense of the country hasn't affected our
athletic programs all over the nation.
* *    *    *
Intercollegiate athletic competition is still with us,
but a few crises and the lights of hundreds of sport stadia
would be snuffed out in the same way that threatens Canadian colleges at present.
The decision to abandon intercollegiate sports in the
U. S. would without a doubt be a last resort action as it haa
been in Canada. I would favor their retention until circumstances are such that a continuance of the program would
prove a definite handicap to the national preparedness picture.  We haven't come to that yet.
* *    *    *
To get away from the effect of war on intercollegiate
sports in Canada and the U. S., I was truly surprised at the
interest evidenced in our World's Series of several weeks
ago by your students. The campus down here followed the
Series with great interest, radios being set up in the patio
(lunch-eating Mecca), men's gym, publications' shack and a
number of other spots. Sentiment favored the underdog
Brooklyn team to the last.
Varsity football, of course, now ls the dominant interest among the sports minded members of our student body.
National defense work and the "draft" have reduced the
squad to its smallest number in college history but the team
has a fine spirit and looks forward to a winning season. On
the same theme I can report that the college cross-country
squad may be disbanded because of lack of material, once
again caused by lack of men students. Enrollment here is
down about 300 from last spring, and totals about 1500 as
against a normal attendance of 2000.
The last point I want to make is the genuine and
sincere interest exhibited in Canada's War Effort by State
College students. The school has sent a number of boys into
C.A.S.F. service, and with the national defense effort current
in this area we do have an appreciation of the work Canada
is doing. With a population that has increased 50 per cent
in little over a year—mainly army and defense -personnel—
we certainly can appreciate that "V" is more than the alphabet's 22nd letter in the mind of Canada.
