Labor Front
• HOLDING the fort for
the United States in a
panel discussion on Tuesday,
Miss Burdine Franco, dark
and smiling co-ed from Berkley, California, told of labour
unions in that country.
With her, and taking the same
disapproving attitude toward the
topic "The United States should
regulate all labor unions by law",
were V/ilma Smith and Kitty
Marcu.se both of U.B.C.
"Since the war with Japan broke
out," said Miss Burdine, "There
has not been one successful strik"
in the States. The people down
there will not stand for any disruption of the war production"
Wilma Smith told the audience
that she was not in favour of the
"cooling off period" that both the
Canadian and American governments had considered.
Miss Burdine finished on a surprising note when she said, "I
don't know whether I should say
this or not before this company
but statistics show that the United
States had only one half the number of war production strikes last
year as did Great Britain in proportion to the population.

out the actual problems of the day
by practical experience, by going
into the slums and by knowing
the conditions that exist in industry.

• WEDNESDAY noon a
wild fight took place
when about 100 students
scrambled for colored balloons that descended from
the roof of the Art's Building.
300 balloons dropped, four containing a free pas3 to the R. C.
Ball. The remaining balloons held
advertising for the Ball. The theme
of this clip of paper was, "Tough
Luck Chum! Try Again."
From the Arts roof the scramble
looked like a scene re-enacted
from the Frencwi Revolution.
When the last balloon was broken, the mob turned their faces skyward, yelling,  "Fake!"
The lucky students who found
tickets are; Dave Manning, Ted

subject: "Resolved that Canada,
after the war, do adopt a policy
of extensive immigration."
The two Manitobans who will
appear here tonight are possessors
of enviable debate reputations.
Sam Breen, a first-year Law student, has had extensive debating
experience during his undergraduate days, at one time taking part
in a discussion with a team from
the University of Iowa.

This new Sunday dress of

Opinion in the Armory is unanimously in favour of the new

To Sergeant-Major Henderson
the new dress is i mixed blessing.
While he agreed in principle to
its adoption he said, "Don't look

Sergeants Mull ins and Ross both

Ross argued from a strictly practical viewpoint that it would keep

the Players' Club's "Candida"
who reached her 21st birthday on

the past three years.

I would like to underline "for
a good play" because this year's
selection committee has with a
certain delightful incongruity,
chosen for the Spring Play, Sheridan's "The Rivals." As an aesthetic form "The Rivals'" has distinct
merit and within the pattern of
life of its period had a certain ap-
positencss. But it surely has little
contact with life today and no
par in a living theatre except as
history or novelty.
Whereas "Candida", although
not a propaganda play in the sense
that it propagates any current
"ism", is a play which has a reality congruent with life in any
period. There are many among us
who strike the self-righteous attitudes of Morel 1 and complacently accept comfort as a criterion of
truth, there are many Burgesses
who think in vulgar profit-and-
loss terms of life, many with Pris-
sy's complaint, some few Candidas who consciously and tenderly shield the weakness of the Mor-
ells, and some who feel the bitter
"heart's, need" of Eugene March-
Let us have more plays of the
formal stature of "Candida" and
with  its universal  revelance. T

Eyes On Ottawa
Alan Harvey, special C.U.P. correspondent whose weekly columns from Ottawa
make their first appearance in the Ubyssey
today, tells of the controversy over the conscription issue which must come to a head
during the new session scheduled to open
January 22. What effect the decisions
reached will have on university students remains behind the veil of obscurity and confusion which seems to characterize deliberations in our nation's capital.
Politicians in parliament, seemingly oblivious of the fact that in two and a half
years of war conditions have been changing
§o rapidly as to completely distort the world
picture of September, 1039, still cling religiously to election promises that Canadian
men will not be conscripted. What a pity
they do not uphold all campaign propaganda
with the same tenacious fervour!
In the United States, the President was
elected with the slogan that no American boys would be called upon to sacrifice
their lives on the battlefields of Europe.
Events moved with modern swiftness—
America almost overnight went on an all-
out war footing. Today, this same President
has promised that American soldiers will
fight side by side with British troops in any
part of the world to bring peace and democracy once again to our battle-crazed globe.
Long before their country declared war,
American youth were being called up under
the Selective Service Act to train for home
defense. So were the youth of Canada—
but with this difference. University students
here could always obtain deferment by virtue of their enrolment in the C.O.T.C. South
of the border it made no difference whether
a man was attending university or not—if
he was caught in the draft, he went, unprotected from deferment because he was a
student. A few months ago, we disagreed
with this principle, feeling that the times
did not warrant taking men from universities for the army, even though they were
just arts students, imbibing "culture". Now
we are not so sure.
Today the whole picture has changed,
and with that change the United States President has seen fit to rectify his policies. He
has realized that the times for adherring to
election promises, just because they are
promises, are passed. He has realized, what
apparently our government has not, that the
war is not what it was a year ago. It is now
world-wide, coming closer to our shores
every day.
No doubt many will take offense to the
statement our government deems impervious to change. Maybe the members of our
parliament do realize the seriousness of the
situation. But if they do, they certainly display queer reactions. While so many important decisions must be made at once,
bickering and indecision remain the order
of the day.
Issues of vital importance are clouded
in argument and confusion. No one knows
exactly who is in charge of A.R.P. No one
knows whether we are going to have conscription or go on fooling ourselves we can
win without it. Meanwhile we are spending
incredible sums of money. We DO know
how to do that.
Is it any wonder Canadian youth becomes bewildered, not knowing whether to
join up or stay in jobs or attend university?
This after two and a half years of war.

Faculty Forum
By C. W* Topping
and heartening article of a week ago encourages me not only to "face 1942 with
reasoned optimism" but to pose for this
week the question, "Assuming that we have
won the war, how shall we organize the
Peace?" The task of reorganizing the world
after the second world war is bound to challenge the highest qualities of whoever has
the job in hand. He will be fortunate to
have behind him the democratic way of life,
where a leader is privileged to draw upon
the thinking and discussion of each and
every citizen.
May I be permitted to bypass the quagmire of the Versailles controversy and proceed to a discussion of the future in the
light of broad sociological principles. The
sociologist is interested in the possible rather than in the ideal. He looks at group phenomena in a perspective of a thousand years
or so and records his observations in terms
of social organization and social disorganization.
Many sociologists argue that the underlying principles of group organization and
control are universal and can be arrived at
by a study of practically any kind of group:
a small village, a family, a fraternity, a national state, a group of commonwealths, a
League of Nations. If this contention is accepted an important practical implication
follows, namely, that post war statesmen
may with confidence proceed to world organization on the basis of the findings of all
social scientists, not merely on the basis of
generalizations in the international field.
What then are the characteristics of a
stable and permanent group?
1. A stable group will possess one or
more elements that may serve as a basis
of unity;
2. The constituent members will possess a spiritual kinship with each other because of these elements and others;
3. Custom and law will overlard and
support this consciousness of kind;
4. There will be government, formal
or informal;
5. And sovereignty, with police
6. There must be, in addition, machinery to expedite change and to guarantee
survival in a changing world.
May I offer a few illustrations of the
first principle? Egypt was united by the
river Nile, and the Roman Empire by the
Mediterranean Sea, England and Scotland
by occupation of a single island. The Hitler
racial myth has become a rallying point for
all Germans however widely dispersed.
Great Britain, Canada and the United States
have a common basis of free political institutions. Thus geography, biology and culture are seen to provide a sound basis for
social organization. Less fundamental factors might serve the same purpose but space
does not permit further illustration.
How far did the Interbellum League of
Nations meet the standards set up for a
stable and permanent grouping?
It was strong only under heading No. 4.
The League of Nations was a formal governmental body with quasi-legislative, administrative, and judicial organs. The nations of the whole world had few geographic,
biological and cultural factors in common.
Consciousness of spiritual kinship failed to
develop between France and Germany and
the United States refused to feel at home
with the other Powers. The cake of League
custom formed slowly and the growth of
an international code of law was at a snail's
pace. There were sanctions but without
police powers, and the machinery for adjustment to changing world conditions proved ineffective. ,
Can a new League of Nations be revived that, will survive the rigours of the
post war period? That will depend primarily on whether the surviving national states
have anything in common on the basis of
which they may unite. The analysis suggests that such a League, if it would survive,
must be armed and given power to act
against an aggressor state; that a body of
international law and precedent must be developed with all haste; and that some method
of changing the status quo without resort
to war must be devised.
A period of disorganization is to the
sociologist an opportunity for reorganization
at a higher level. To few generations of
men have two opportunities to completely
reshape the world been given. If statesmen
are prepared to learn from the researches
of social scientists and others and from experience with the Interbellum League of
Nations they should be able to build a stable
and permanent peace. It is possible that
they can do it, due to the virility and resil-
ence of the democratic way of life, even if
they continue to ignore the scientists.

•   U.B.C.'s STUDENT war effort leads the way as far as
western Canadian universities are concerned.
At least that is the impression gained when one considers the information on war effort given to us by editors
of the Saskatchewan Sheaf and the University of Alberta
Gateway, at a conference of Western Canadian University
papers last month.
Considerably cramped by a Sen- ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
ate regulations which forbids clubs
sponsoring functions for war effort, the University of Alberta has
set out to get around the regula-
lon by sponsoring sales of pennants, peanuts and dance ribbons
and dance. The total raised from
these sources was fifty dollars.
Every year the U. of A. undertakes to provide cheer for the
Edmonton poor at Christmas time.
This year they raised 300 dollars.
Tentative plans for a Spitfire
fund are being made on the Edmonton campus and it will be carried on during the spring term.
Last year the University of Saskatchewan raised 1000 dollars for
the war effort and this year they
are shooting for a minimum of at
least 1500.
They have Introduced self
denial day which has proved successful here and they buy wholesale flowers to make corsages
which are sold at dances. A special issue of the Sheaf was sold at
5c a copy netting $72.00.
U.B.C. raised $5200 for war effort last year.
Both Saskatchewan and Alberta
have enrolments of between 1500-
1600, or almost 1000 less than that
at U.B.C.

announcement may be expected
shortly, probably when Canada'r
19th parliament since confederation opens its third session Jan.
If no declaration Is forthcoming,
political strategists predict the
chamber of the House of Commons
will become a bottleground for
heated discussion on extension of
compulsory service laws.
The forthcoming session may indeed be one of the most important
political assemblies of the war
Spurred by growing pressure
from political and private groups
for unlimited conscription, the
manpower question has been under intensive study by the administration. Rt. Hon. Arthur
Meighen, new national h'ader of
the conservative party, has declared himself unequivocally in
support of unlimitfd conscription.
And some of Prime Minister
MacKenzie King's own follower."
—including at least three members
of his party in the house of commons — have placed themselves on
record in favor of conscription for
service outside Canada.
Responsible cabinet members
have signified the administration
plans some form of selective service. The crucial question seems to
be whether this will involve extension of compulsory service provisions inherent in the national
resources mobilization act to include service on foreign battle-
fronts, or whether it will call for
merely a more comprehensive program of service in Canada, Including the drafting of men for industry and farm labor.
"We will mobilize manpower for
the greater production of munitions and food so as to be an asset
to our friends and allies. We will
organize our women to work in
the arsenals, the shops and the
factories" . . Hon. Charles Gavin

And a cost-of-living bonus.

Army Purge Ousts Three McKechnie Players
Poor Parade Attendance
Restricts Rush, Tucker,.
Richards FromGameSat.
• THE SCHEDULED PRACTICE of the English Rugby
team on Thursday at 12:30 was turned into an emergency
meeting of the players, following an announcement by Colonel Shurm to the effect that three members of the squad
would be restricted from playing in the game on Saturday.
f^mmmmmmmm^^mmmmmmmmmmmmt George Rush, Ian Richards, and
Jack Tucker are the three players
affected. Evann Davies stated that
Colonel Shrum had refused to let
these three men switch their Saturday parades to evening parades
because all three of them were so
far behind in their military work.
These three players formed the
backbone of the team, and their
replacement will be difficult to
say the least.
Dates For
Fistic Go
• THE C.O.T.C. will enter a boxing team in the Canadian
Corps championships which will
be fought off in all parts of Canada this spring. The winners will
enter the Ail Canada fight-offs
to be held in March.
The C.O.T.C. squad will be picked during the coming week as a
result of preliminaries to be staged
in the gym. It is expected that
Maury Van Vliet's team will be
entered in practically every one
of the eight divisions, lightweight,
welterweight, middleweight and
heavyweight in both open and
novice sections. ..
All aspirants for positions on
the team have been working out
regularly during the past several
weeks and all the boys are in top
shape. It Is not definitely known
as yet whether Tommy Syme,
leading boxer of the corps, will
enter the tournament. Tommy is
entered in the big Golden Gloves
North West tournament In Seattle
two weeks hence and will not enter the armed forces tussles If they
Interfere with his chances in the
Golden Gloves.
Among those cited for positions
on the squad are Austin Frith,
Jack Church and Doug Jackson.
Doug Lee will be entered in the
novice class and rumour has it
that Jack Tucker, burley captain
of the football squad, is to turn
out next week.
President Hopkins reports that
Dartmouth students have veered
away from the isolationist position. It is the old story — youth

—from the "New Yorker."

Stan—We're   going   for   a   nice
automobile ride.
Pat—No fooling.
Stan—It all depends on you.
Charlie Cotterell, manager of the
team, said that it was a choice of
going through with the series without the three men, or giving up
the whole idea of attempting to
play for the McKechnie Cup. He
left the decision up to the team.
The men were unanimously in
favour of going through with the
already arranged schedule.
Charlie suggested that he try to
get a week's postponement of this
Saturday's game, but later dorp-
ped the idea as impractical this
late in the week.
Evann Davies was pessimistic
concerning the team's chances,
lacking the three vital players,
but the team's members were more
confident of the outcome of the
game. Some of the men did feel
that the squad was in no shape to
play a McKechnie Cup game.
Charlie Cotterell said confidently
that the team would take the field
"making up in spirit all that it'
lacks in strength".
The three players chosen to take
the places of' George Rush, Ian
Richards and Jack Tucker were
not known at press time. It is unfortunate that the purge should
have taken these three, because
they were considered three of the
strongest men on the squad. Varsity will take the field with an
untried "team but with plenty of
morale and the strength that comes
of anger.
Much criticism was voiced against the military authorities for
their attitude, for Colonel Shrum
had announced last week that
changing from Saturday to evening
parades would be quite permiss-
ableable for all players. But
Davies pointed out that the three
men involved were much too short
in their military hours and that
this had not been known by the
Colonel when he gave his unconditional approval. A check up on
parade attendance resulted in this
bombshell just two days before
the first game was to be played.
Evann Davies has given out the
following changed line up:
Forwards: Al Narod, Tom McLaughlin, Evann Davies, Bill Orr.
Hunter Wood, Mack Buck, Boyd
Crosby, Jack Harrison.
Half Gordy Sutherland.
Five eighths: Bud Spiers.
Threes: Orme Hall, Tommy

Ski Trip South Off;
Skiers Drill In Army
• MEMBERS OF THE Varsity Ski Club are ruefully scraping the wax from their flashing planks today, and a telegram is on the way to the College of Puget Sound, announcing that U.B.C. must forego entering the Northwestern, inter-
colegiate ski tounrament this year.
The collegiate skiers had already
accepted the invitation to travel
south for Mount Rainier tourney
when the University authorities
here stated that no U.B.C. team
would be allowed off from military
training to make the trip.
Thc tournament had been .dated
for the weekend of January 30 to
February 1. and was an annual
affair between Varsity and C.P.S
ski  artists.

Meet   To-night
•   THE UNIVERSITY sports bubble has been busted.
The basketball team has lost seven straight games;
the Puget Sound Ski Meet plans have been suspended;
Rowing Club Inter-Collegiate aspirations have been smashed;
Track Club hopes have crumbled; McKechnie Cup tilts are
still hanging in the air; proposed basketball trip to Victoria
is doubtful.
Downtown sports journalists take the view that campus sports have that apathetic 'don't give a damn' attitude.
They're still in the throes of that archaic theory which thinks
that this 'don't give a damn' attitude is a cause rather than
a result.
Varsity teams are slumping only because they have
placed their War Effort ahead of their Sports effort.
This is the cause. The 'don't give a damn' attitude is
the result or so-called apparent result. University teams
are losing games because of their night military lectures,
their Saturday afternoon parades, their organizations for
raising relief money which doesn't leave much time for
sport workouts.
Sports are secondary on the campus. War training
comes first.
Downtown opinion supposes that Varsity students have
nothing to do but practise. Nothing could be farther from
the truth.
The question is not "what will the war do to campus
sports?" but rather "what will sports do for the war?"
By way of answer, can be remembered the Blue and
Gold hoop team fighting their way to a Canadian Championship heedless of all but the game at hand .... then can
be remembered four of that team in the armed forces today;
Pat Flynn, top Inter-city cage scorer, Doug Pedlow, Brud
Matheson and Norm Armstrong.
To be remembered too, the University Championship
Canadian Football of 1939-40, members of which have now
joined up; Tommy Williams, Graham Finlay, Freddy Joplin,
Fred Smith and many others.
College-sports have offered their best for the War in
the past and they'll be at it for a while yet.
'Birds To Victoria
In League Contest
•   VARSITY THUNDERBIRDS Senior A Basketball squad
will play the first of a home and home series with the
Victoria Dominoes when they travel to the Capital City
• Co-Ed Sports
• VARSITY is thanking Gwynne
Pastlethwaite's accurate shooting for her narrow victory over
the Canadian Legion five at the
John Oliver Gym on Tuesday. Varsity won 21-20.
Showing top-notch form in the
season's first tilt, the Varsity girls
hung up a 7-2 lead by the end of
the 1st frame, and though after the
quarter pause the Legionettes took
a mild scoring splurge to bring
the score to 14-8 by the half, the
Blue and Gold clipped them down
to a two point lead by the third
rest  period.
The climax came when Gwynne
scored on a foul gift with five seconds to play, breaking the 20-20
tie and adding another scalp to
the belts of our comely amazons.
It was Pauline Greer who really
made the 'B' stand for baskets,
hanging up seven points, though
Helen McWilliams and Eileen Mc-
Killop were close contenders,
chalking up six and five points
respectively. Helen Matheson bagged two points, and with Gwynne's
one we have the twenty-one
which spelt the coming of age of
the Varsity squad.
Next game is slated to be played
at the Y.W. when Varsity will
tackle Normals. We have already
trounced them once this season.
''The game will be played at seven
o'clock tonight.
We beg to predict that:
1. Varsity will trim the Normal*
in Friday's contest.
2. The Basket finals which take
place next week will show varsity
well placed in the female cagers.

There hae been some talk of
the game being cancelled, but as
far as Mr. Van Vliet knows the
tilt will go on as scheduled. These
games will count in the league
standing of the Inter-City League.
It was the Victoria Dominoes
that gave last year's Canadian
Championship Thunderbirds their
hardest battle in their march to
the title. Varsity won the serie-.
in three straight closely fought
But tlii.s year the Birds present
n totally different lineup and so
far have not gained any victory
against local teams. Also the
Dominoes have decreased in
strength from last season. Thc
Chapman brothers, of course, are
still running the .squad along with
Norm Baker and Ritchie Nicol
from last year with several newcomers among whom is Jack Mot-
lishnw. brother of Hank who plays
for the students.
Varsity has been the only team
that has not met up with the Dominoes this season. Against the
other teams, Dominoes have had
varied successes. Shores were the
only team to gain a victory as they
edged out a close decision. Tookes
were narrowly clowned and the
Stacy crew were .soundly drubbed.
