Publicity Campaign
To Rouse Province
On Subject Of Cut
" Vigorous Measures Necessary, " States
President of Publicity Committee
"A vigorous Publicity Campaign is essential if the proposed
cut in the government grant, entailing the severe crippling of
the University, is to be opposed," said Ken Martin, President of
the newly formed Student Publicity Campaign, at a special
meeting of the student body, called in the Auditorium on Friday, January 29.
It was expressly stated that the object of the drive was not
to raise money to balance the cut. The campaign is to show
the general public that the University is an essential part of
the life of the Province, and convince them of its value. All
students are called upon to help to*
every way possible, especially by ob
taming tha support of influential
people throughout the Province. The
studenta are to form the nucleus of
the drive, and hope to win public
opinion to their aide when the facts
of the case are known.
Investigation proves the cry "Nearly all our graduates go to the United
States," to be entirely false. Out of
the 2,304 graduates of the University, only 170 are at present in the
States, while 1,124 are now in Vancouver.
The government grant to the University for the year 1931-1932 was
1480,000. Next year it is proposed
to decrease it to $2SO,000-a loss of
some 1230,000. It has practically
been accepted by the Board of Governors. Many points regarding this
drastic action are not known, and
have been held from the committee.
The students cannot get Information
on the subject, and regard the action of the Governors as strange, to
say the least. It is felt that from
the latter at least the students might
have expected support and protection.
Present plans centre around a
skeleton university including the
faculties of Agriculture and Applied
Science, as well as third and fourth
year Arts, but on such a scale that
the University would sink from its
present position of one of the first
five Universities on the continent
to that of a fifth rate one. The degrees of the students issued under
such circumstances would "not be
worth the proverbial snowball." The
only other alternative offered was
that of eliminating certain faculties
and cutting the Arts, the most nearly self supporting of the faculties
very severely.
Every effort Is being made to keep
the University from being engaged
in a political campaign—becoming
indeed nothing better than a "political football." The University would
undoubtedly suffer from such an
event.
Win Shilvock, director of the Publicity Sub-committee, supported these
statements, and regretted that the
students had not shown active interest at an earlier date. He declared the purpose of the committee
to be the broadcasting of accurate
information concerning the University.
The necessity of newspaper support, and general advertising was
stressed. A certain amount has already been done in this respect, especially in the down town area.
Streamers are even to be attached
to menu cards. Lists of powerful
organizations have been prepared,
and are to be approached on the
matter, while a catalogue of some
five thousand influential people in
the province has been prepared for
the same purpose. The latter will
receive four page folders every three
clays. Results are expected in about
a week.
The secretary, Don McDiarmid,
stated that in this latter matter the
cooperation of the students was essential. He further suggested that
the students sign away $2.00 each of
their caution money to cover the
expenses incurred by the Publicity
work. Money could then be borrowed  on  these  signatures.
Several suggestions were made
when the meeting was thrown open
to general discussion. The advisability of sending speakers through
the Province was suggested, as well
as the use of the radio as a means
of  spreading  propaganda.
Student enthusiasm ran high, and
th: attention and quiet that characterized the meeting encourage the
committee to hope for strong and
concerted   support.

Governors Will
Meet Students
Friday Evening
A Special Meeting of the Board of
Governors of the University has been
called for Friday, February 5, for
the purpose of hearing representations from the undergraduate body
and from any other organizations
which may wish to present their
views.
The executive of the Student Publicity Committee haa announced its
intention of attending this meeting
while it is probable that it will be
accompanied by representatives of
Students' Council and the Publications Board. The Publicity Commute hopes to be able to obtain, on
Friday, information as to the absolute effect which the proposed reduction in the grant would have on
the working of the University. It
is likely that the Alumni and possibly other organizations will also
be represented at this meeting which
is to be held in the Board Room of
thc Administration Building at 8:15
o'clock.
The press report of the meeting of
the Special Committee of the Board
of Governors and the Minister of
Education indicated that the sum
suggested for next year's appropriation has been definitely established.
The report moreover, implied that
the Board • of Governors had presented a budget which would come
within thc proposed figure. The
fact, however, that the Co-ordinating
Committee held a meeting last night
ii taken to indicate that the situation
i; still considered serious. The Coordinating Committee is composed of
representatives of both the Senate
and the Board of Governors and
only meets under unusual circumstances. Whether or not this meeting will result in any public statement is not known.

In Players Club
Spring Comedy
Roles in Sir James M. Barrie's
play, "Alice-sit-by-the-fire," which
will be produced by .the Players
Club from March 9-12, have been
finally assigned.
Tho ♦'tie role, Alice, will be played
by Marjorie Ellis, who had a leading part in last year's Spring Play.
She will be understudied by Betty
Jack, who will also play Fanny, the
maid. The Colonel, Alice's husband,
will be Jack Ruttan, understudied
by Ivan Knight. Both these men
have been in a spring play before.
Betty Wilson will play Amy, with
Nance Carter as an understudy.
There is still some doubt as to
whether Nancy Symes (also in last
year's play) or Dorothy Lees will
take the part of Ginevra. Competition has been very keen for the role
of Steve and the judges are still undecided between Alstair Taylor, Arthur Bagnall and Jack Sargent.
Harold Lando, on tour last year
as a freshman, has been acting well
and will play Cosmo, the seventeen
year old boy. The slavey Richardson will be done in Vancouver and
Victoria by Margaret Stewart and
on tour by Swanhild Matthison.
Mary  Darnborough plays the nurse.
"Alice-sit-by-the-fire" will be the
fourth of Barrie's plays to be produced in Vancouver this season and
promises to be as interesting and entertaining as the others have been.

With 1000 Caution Money waivers
signed, and tha expectation of 500
more within the next few days, the
Finance sub-committee has a guarantee of 13000 for loans to finance
the expenses of the Publicity Campaign. Friday afternoon and Saturday morning tagging* on the campus
netted $130 and as tags are still be-
Ing sold more cash will be realized
from this source.
"We need a minimum of 1300 to
carry on our work," said Ken Campbell, chairman of the Finance subcommittee, "and we want all the
student support we can possibly
get." Stamps for the thousands of
letters which are being circulated
will make the biggest hole in the
budget, with office and stationary
supplies using up the rest. Due to
the co-operation of the S.C.M. and
other organizations these latter expenses have been decreased very
materially.
A noon-hour basketball dance will
be held in the gym some day this
week to help raise cash for immediate expenses. Plans are also under
way for the staging of a benefit
basketball game. Donations will be
sought from the Alumni and the
various graduate organizations, but
no appeal will be made to the general public. It is the intention of
the committee to put the Publicity
Campaign over by student initative
and student money.
All students are urged to give $2.00
by signing caution money waivers
which are being circulated on the
campus. Arts '33 has made the
quickest and biggest answer to this
appeal so far—the Junior class is
represented by nearly 100 signed
pledges. Arts '34 runs it a close second with over 80 signatures. One

Barry Jackson
Company Will
Return Shortly
Mail orders are now being filled
in order of their receipt for the
special return engagement of Sir
Barry Jackson's Company of British
Mayers, which will commence on
Monday, February 8th, during which
v/eek this eminent producer will offer the three most popular plays of
his repertoire.
Owing to the numerous demands
at the box office, Rudolf Besier's
romantic drama of the Brownings,
"The Barretts of Wimpole Street"
will be presented for the. first three
days with a matinee on Wednesday,
while on Thursday and Friday, Oliver Goldsmith's comedy of errors,
"She Stoops to Conquer" will hold
the boards, and at the matinee and
again on Saturday night, Sir James
Barrie's romantically charming
"Quality Street" will conclude an
engagement that has definitely set
new standards in theatrical fare for
this city.
It is not necessary to dwell upon
the competence of this excellent
Company, or to repeat the superlative praise of both press and public,
as Company, production and plays
are already "the talk of Vancouver."
Japan Menaces
World, Chinese
Student States
Japanese Student Declares Japan Te
Be Justified in Her Attitude to
China
"There is considerable misunderstanding here concerning the present
situation in Manchuria," declared V.
Koga. a Japanese student, when
questioned as to his opinion of developments in the Near East.
"Japan is quite justified ln her attitude towards China," continued
Mr. Koga, "and she has jbeen unfairly criticized for disregarding the
League of Nations. After the war,
Japan got what amounts to a 99 year
lease of Manchuria, and since she
legally invested a great deal of money there, surely she is at liberty to
reap the benefits of her investments?"
Mr. Koga went on to say that, if
one insists on taking a pessimistic
view of the matter, one should remember that the newspapers are not
reliable ln their information, and
that the situation is not so serious
as it appears. "Orientals here are
not very much agitated," he said,
"and this seems to indicate that the
situation Is not serious."
"The Ubyssey recently published a
statement that Japan has no right to
interfere with China," continued Mr.
Koga, "but for that matter, if one
takes this view, neither has Britain
any right to imprison leaders in
India."
In conclusion, Mr. Koga stated
that, until some sort of International
understanding was reached, the present disagreement could not be settled. "Either we must abolish our
nationalistic ideas and come to a
agreement, or else wars will go on
for ever," he declared.
The other side of the question is
seen from the remarks of T. Kong
Lee, a Chinese student of Arts '32.
He maintains that Japan is not justified in invading Manchuria and
Shanghai. "She may, technically,
be protecting her interests, but in
fact this is just an excuse to attack
China," he said.
"Japan is a member of the League
of Nations," continued Mr. Lee, "and
as.' such pledges herself to respect
the territorial and administrative integrity of China. This she has not
done, but rather appears to have
taken advantage of China's period
of revolution and Internal adjustment."
"The only reason that Shanghai
has been invaded is to force China
to acknowledge Japan's supremacy
in Manchuria." declared Mr. Lee.
Concluding his remarks Mr. Lee
said that should Japan continue her
present policy, she would constitute
a real menace to the world at large.

5000 Letters To Be Mailed to Prominent
Citizens of Province
Typewriters pounded, pens squeaked, pencils broke and
were sharpened, paper flew in all directions as the routine work
of the Student Publicity Bureau got under way. All available
office space was pressed into service. Council office housed a
busy staff, the Pub. office was used. Mrs. Lucas offered her
quarters for the use of the committee and the offer was jumped
at.
Over twenty energetic students slaved away all Saturday
afternoon, addressing envelopes, compiling mailing lists, phoning influential people; everybody was as busy as the proverbial
bee.

Informality will be the rule of
the evening, and present plans include the ejection of anyone who
has the temerity to appear in a dinner-jacket. Barney Potts will supply the necessary incentive to dancing which promises to be good considering his reputation and that of
the floor of the chosen hall.
The draw for partners will be
held in Arts 100 at noon today. Fast

to the last minute, that is to say,
until the draw actually starts.
Patrons and patronesses for the
evening include President and Mrs.
L. S. Klinck, Dean and Mrs. Buchanan, Dean M. L. Bollert, Professor Sedgwick, newly elected honorary president, and Dr. and Mrs.
G. Shrum.
Supper will be served in the dining  room.
Flood Damage
Not Charged To
Caution Money
"Damage caused by the recent <
flood in App. Sc. 109 will not be
chargeable to caution money," states
John Lee, superintendant of Buildings and Grounds. The plastering
alone will cost $65.00, but It is not
feared that the total damage will
run over the century mark. Some
of the lighting and other fixtures
that have already been taken out
wtjre badly corroded with rust and
many of them will have to be replaced. Repairs will not be completed for some time.
DO YOU KNOW?
That 77 per cent, of U.B.C. grads are resident in B.C.?
That 82 per cent, of U.B.C. grads are resident in Canada?
That only 7 per cent, are resident in U.S.A.?
U.B.C. is only 17 years old, yet it is recognized as one of
the first class universities of America?
Approximately one-half million dollars in the form of scholarships has been granted to U.B.C. graduates?
The government has proposed to cut the U.B.C. grant by
over 45 per cent, for the coming year?
This cut will mean the discontinuance of the courses upon
which the scholastic standing of the U.B.C. depends?
That the work of the last seventeen years in building the
University to its present position will be to a great extent
wasted and that it will require the efforts of at least another
generation to rebuild what can be destroyed in one year.
U.B.C. has some of the leading men of America upon its
faculty. A regressive policy will not only mean the loss of these
fir3t class men, it will also mean that other first class men will
not join the staff of the U.B.C.
The standing of the University depends upon the standing
of the faculty.
STUDENT NIGHT
FOR "PINAFORE"
FEBRUARY 24
The Musical Society will produce
the Gilbert and Sullivan opera,
"H.M.S. Pinafore," Wednesday, February 24, t& Saturday, February 27.
The complete cast has finally been
chosen, and stage practices have
been in progress for some time.
The plot of "H.M.S. Pinafore" is
similar to that of "The Pirates of
Penzance," produced by the Musical Society last year. The scene is
set on the deck of the "Pinafore."
The part of Captain Corcoran, in
command of the Pinafore, is taken
by Bob Harcourt. The captain's
daughter, played by Alice Rowe,
falls in love with a sailor on her
father's ship, and he with her. The
part of the sailor is taken by Neil
Perry.   Her   father,   of   course,   will
A twelve hundred word letter was
compiled and rushed down to the
printers. The first batch, hot off the
press, arrived late ln the afternoon,
and the rest were delivered out here
early Monday morning. The letter
waa drawn up with the help of
Professor Lewis, of the English Department.
An attempt will be made to mall
the epistle to every man and woman
in the Province who could possibly
have any influence. Included in the
mailing list are: Members ot the
Provincial Legislature; Service Clubs,
both local and provincial; the various Parent-Teacher Associations
throughout the province; lawyers
doctors, newspapers, alumni, members of the Farmers' Institute, and
the  various Ministerial associations.
"Offers of clerical assistance have
been received but there is room for
many more at different times of the
day," states Ken Martin, chairman
of the committee.    Every aVaileble
vice and the mailing list is topping
the five thousand mark.
The program of action is to include, after this first letter has been
mailed, circulars mailed to the same
people at intervals of four or five
days. It is hoped that the cumulative effect of these messages containing pertinent facts concerning
the • University and the work it accomplished will have enough influence indirectly in the government
to forestall any action they may
have taken as regards reducing the
university appropriation.
Ken Campbell, finance sub-corn-
m.ttee convener, has outlined his
plans for raising money in a story
which appears elsewhere on this
page.
The first letter sent out d„- tho
committee follows:
«
Dear Sir or Madam:
This letter is directed particularly
to two classes of people: those who
are friends of the University of British Columbia, and those who have
at heart a sincere interest in the
welfare and healthy development of
this province. Its purpose is to ask
for nothing but serious reflection
upon the facts which it contains.
Many people in the province have
never been in close touch with
the University; others have been,
but have lost their connection with
it. That this should be the case expose*, not only the University, but
the whole province to a danger
which we have set ourselves to combat.    The danger which we foresee

The complicated situation is cleared
up in the usual Gilbert and Sullivan
manner by the agency of Buttercup,

been nurse to both the captain and
Ralph Rackstraw, the sailor. She

Captain Corcoran Is In reality a

many beutlful solos, effective choral
work and sparkling dialogue.
Wednesday, February 24, will be
students' night. Tickets will be 35c,
50c, and 75c, and will be on sale at
the box office Monday, February 22.
These tickets will be issued to students only. Tickets for the other
nights will be 50c 75c, and $1.00, and
are obtainable this week from members of the Society.

AN IMPORTANT MEETING
IT
Considerable surprise has been expressed by
students that the Board of Governors advanced
no protest against the announced intention of
the government to reduce the legislative grant
to the University from over $450,000 to only
$250,000.
Rightly or wrongly the student body firmly
believes that the University cannot operate at
anything like its present standard or efficiency
on $250,000. Students have not the facts necessary to prove this opinion but it certainly seems
a reasonable assumption. A cut last year, which
was little more than half that proposed for the
forthcoming session, caused the introduction of
many economies. It resulted in fees being
raised twenty-five per cent. It evoked a mass
of criticism which suggested that the operating
cost of the institution had been reduced to the
absolute limit. How then can the institution
absorb another cut and one nearly twice as
great as that of 1931, without being reduced to
a mere shadow of its former self?
While students are only too cognizant of the
fact that the Board of Governors knows infinitely more of the situation than they do, they
can scarcely be blamed for questioning an
action which appears to be quite unreasonable.
The matter is one of vital interest to every
student; the action of the Board appears incomprehensible. What more natural than that
students should question the Board?
The Board of Governors has offered to
meet representatives of the student body at
a meeting next Friday. While it will seriously
handicap the work ol the Student Publicity
Committee if it cannot obtain the information
it desires until Friday, the fact that the Governors are prepared to meet the students is
very satisfactory.
Students want to know why the same Board
of Governors which last year vigorously
opposed the initial cut has apparently accepted
with complacency this further drastic reduction. They are asking why the Board has made
no move to defend the institution which it
represents, from a relatively heavier cut than
other government departments have received
to date. They cannot understand why education should be the first thing to suffer in times
of financial stringency. They would even be
glad of proof that their original assumption
regarding the efficacy of the reduced grant is
incorrect. Friday's meeting will provide an
opportunity for these and other difficult points
to be cleared up. Students hope that the Board
of Governors, in which they have always shown
complete confidence, will be willing to explain
these things.
ACTION AT LAST!
At the general meeting of the Student Body
on Friday, called for the purpose of discussing
the $230,000 cut in the University grant, the
first steps were taken towards making B.C.
"Varsity conscious." The students turned out
in large numbers, a well-chosen Publicity Committee outlined the proposed campaign, and
further suggestions from students were considered with close attention.
The general tone of that meeting—the willing co-operation and lack of the usual horseplay—are indicative of the spirit with which
Varsity meets the greatest crisis it has ever
faced. In the past, during the great drive of
'22 and '23, again when a gymnasium was
needed, and last year when the drive for a
stadium swung into being, the student body
rose promptly to the occasion, and the result
of these various efforts speaks for itself. Today,
when for weeks the students have been awaiting definite news from Victoria and restlessly
expecting those responsible for the University's welfare to ward off this crippling blow—
only to realize the futility of such a hope—
they are faced with the problem of somehow
bringing home to every thinking person in the
province the real value of the University as a
cultural and commercial factor in B.C.'s development.
That they take the problem seriously has
an
Employment
And Education
For tiie last issue the editors wrote
amusing editorial—I refer to the one on student employment. In tone it verged on the
snobbish, yet it was so ingenuous that one was not offended. Apparently the editors
consider that such summer
jobs as waiting, gardening, washing dishes,
mining, magazine selling, street-car conducting, truck driving, etc., are somewhat infra dig.
The scribes suggest that there is something in
the idea of a co-operative broom-making industry, carried on in a window. Well, il I had my
choice between washing dishes and being a
broom-maker exposed week on week to the
public gaze, I think I'd shoose to wash dishes.
The editors neglect to offer ideas about other
possible co-operative enterprises.
As for interest and remuneration, most of
the jobs mentioned as lacking in these, actually
have both, to considerable extents.
The editors assume that the purpose of
higher education is to fit students for the professions. I suppose they would be shocked if
I suggested that this idea is out of date. The
important thing is that those who have the ability should be educated, whether for professions or not is incidental.
In the near future there will be much more
leisure among the people than there is today,
because there will be a proper distribution of
employment. Leisure will actually become a
problem, and in education lies its solution.
The proportion of secondary school and
university graduates continues to increase,
and it must continue increasing, because the
future of democracy and society depends upon
it. So I suggest that even now education for
enlightened citizenship and intelligent use of
leisure may be more important to the state
than education for the overcrowding of professions. It seems to me quite desirable that
people in other occupations than those called
"professional" should be well educated.
If the editors take issue with any of the
above, I challenge them to reply, but would
beg them never again to use the expression
"the young idea" in referring to the student
body. Somehow, it makes me want to stamp
on the floor and scream.
#   #   *
When I was told about the recent student
general meeting, I thought it was a fairy story.
The auditorium full—the speeches good—no
one departing for one o'clock lectures—it all seemed unbelievable.
The students have undertaken
a tremendous task. In a few weeks
they are attempting to arouse public opinion
against a drastic cut in the government grant.
It is to be hoped that the executive will not
hesitate to pursue a vigorous and ambitious
policy. The time for doubting is past. Delays
will be fatal. Confidence, energy and resourcefulness—these alone will bring results—
and I believe that a large measure of success
could be attained.
Latest developments are the publication of
the first circular letter, and the arrangement
of a meeting between the Board of Governors
and the Student Publicity Committee on Friday night. To the humble student mind such
a delay before this important meeting seems
simply appalling. One does not doubt that
the Board of Governors has at heart the best
interests of the University, as it sees them.
However, it is hard to understand why there
should be lack of expedition in this crisis.
Some of us feel that something more vigorous than letter writing should be done. I have
suggested a Ghandi stunt: a horde of students,
scantily garbed, would go to Victoria and park
on the steps of the Parliament Building until
this touching sight moved the honorable ministers to reconsider their designs. For goats,
the Muck editor thought we could get the
policemen's goats.
been evinced by the organized planning of the
last few weeks, by the many steps already
taken to enlist the aid of both public and private friends of this institution, and by the care
and tact with which the whole situation has
been handled.
The students, only too often described as
either selfishly thoughtless or pleasure bent,
are once more drawn together by the need to
ensure the continuance of U.B.C. as a first rate
university, and as such of practical use to the
province.   They have worked for the survival
of the University before but never in such a
crisis and where such need of co-operation exists.    Evidence to date shows that this need
is understood by everyone on the campus, and
will be well cared for.   In three days, $2,000
caution money has already been promised by
the students to defray expenses of the campaign.

Reg. Hodgson and "Gee" Ternan
starred. The latter had the misfortune to break his rib in the first half.
Hi-Jinks proved to be the highest
achievement of democracy that this
University has ever witnessed. Bedraggled tramps, lovely ladies, k brigands, princesses and pierrota mingled
on the most friendly terms, enjoying
the dancing, skits and refreshments
together. It seems that the gala event
was also looked upon favorably by
some of the male students of the University.
The Arts men held a smoker, singsong and stag dance at which the
principal entertainers were Mr. G.
Kydd, magician, Professor Logan and
Doc. Sedgewick. Arts '22 came out on
top of Arts '23, '24 and '25 in a blind
boxing match.

On Sunday evening the Varsity
Christian Union conducted the service
at Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church. The
two speakers, James Wilson and Paul
Campbell, expanded their subject,
"Why not be on the winning side?"
in a way which made it plain that the
winning side is the side of Christ and
that no clear thinking person could
do other than admit that the way of
Christ is the way.
Several members of the Union repeated appropriate verses of the Bible
which best conveyed their thoughts.
Excellent music was rendered by the
choir, by soloists and by a male and
mixed quartette.
On Wednesday at 12:05 an opening
meeting is to be held in Arts 204 when
a special speaker will address the

EUGENIE HATS AGAIN
The Oregon State Barometer tells
us that "Cords" are every bit as regal
in origin as Empress Eugenie hats. It
appears that "corduroy" comes from
the French "Cord de les Rois," meaning "cord of the king!" At one time
it seems that kings were associated
with the fabric, but through decades
of retrogression it came to be the property of mere college students.

Book Review     ]
"The Economic Value of a University." This book, the author of
which is anonymous, should be suppressed. It is entirely erroneous. It
gives the reader an impression of
University life which is, as any undergrad will tell you, absolutely
and positively wrong.
The volume is an endeavor to justify the existence of a University—
any University. It points out that
without a University we would have
no engineers to build our modern
structures of all kinds—buildings,
ships, machinery, etc. Without a
University education we would have
no means of conveying our present
knowledge to our children, i.e., we
would have no teaching system. He
points out that we would have no
professional men—doctors, research
workers, and the like. He goes further, but these few instances will
show how erroneous he is
He then proceeds, in Part 2, to
show that education in another state
or country other than the native one
of the student, is of less value than
an education in one's native habitat.
What could be more absurd? A B.A.
degree is a B.A, degree wherever
you are. He contends that if one
receives one's higher education in
a foreign country, the student will
stay there to earn his living. He
proceeds from this to an Indignation
Meeting of one (himself), the subject of which is "Poison or the Axe
for the man who earns his Living in
a foreign State?"
What the devil does that anonymous writer want to go mucking
about this grand idea for? I think
he's pure crazy. Only 170 copies otit
of 2304 published have been sold, (4
died). We hope no more will be

STUDENTS
INTERVIEWED
"Half the grant would not be as
useful to the university as the whole
grant," is the opinion of hundreds
of students interviewed yesterday
concerning the proposed economy
cut. Arnold Henderson, one-time
U. B. C. student, said that he woud-
n't mind if the grant was cut in two
as long as we got both parts. Don
Hutchison admitted something or
somebody was out of order and the
whole thing might be railroaded.
Ron Grantham suggested that the
minister of education be suspended
for two weeks, but after thinking
it over said one week might be
enough.
Jack Ruttan was too busy to be
interviewed as his little friend, "Alice-sit-by-the-fire" kept him occupied. Sid. Semple however, came
right to the point, and waving a
grass-hockey stick in the air stated
that the government shouldn't cut
up.
Wilfred Lee, Editor-in-Chief of
the Ubyssey and prominent Agri-
culture man, claimed that as long
as the university had a caf. that
could produce bottled milk It was a
valuable institution.
The C.O.T.C. are up in arms about
the whole thing. The Letters Club
are writing a letter to somebody or
other and the Musical Society are
yelling their heads off.
Interview With McGoofus
"Strongly in favor of a cut," was
McGoofus' statement to the press.
He went on to explain his declaration. "I see from College Humor
that students down ln the U.S.A.
have a pretty good time. They don't
appear to do any work at all. Life
is just one damn gin after another.
"Then, too," he went on, after
throwing a snowball through a window, "they appear to have no difficulty in getting a degree. I believe it is quite simple. A couple
of good cigars will square anything,
"The work up here is too hard. I
really haven't got the faintest hope
of passing my exams in Easter. I
do hope they will cut the grant.
Then I can go down to the States
and maybe marry an heiress. I hear
they are thick with them.
"There is another reason why 1
should like to go down there. The
first is that I would like to see the
big two billion dollar machine that
Hoover is hunting Prosperity with.
It must be very interesting. I wonder what they feed it on? I hope
it can turn corners without getting
dizzy.
Interview With Dr. McHootch
"I am absolutely Indifferent," declared Professor McHootch, when
questioned by a reporter, "I do not
care whether the Varsity shuts down
or not."
The intrepid fellow who finally
ran Mr. McHootch down in his lair
in the basement of the top floor of
the Arts Building, Had asked the
famous man's opinion of the present
MUCKATORIAL
This issue of Muck-a-Muck features the Publicity Stunt. It
is prepared by the Muck staff as a small contribution towards
the success of the student campaign.
* *   *   *
After a hot argument with ourselves we find we are heavily in favor of a cut in the University grant. In the name of
economy, common sense, or what have you, let us pack up our
books in April and go home with the firm intention of returning in September to learn how to develop B.C.'s natural resources.
Instead of English 13 we can register for Lumbering 3; instead of Ec. 1 we can sign up for Fishing 2; and instead of
French 3 we can enlist in a three-unit course on "Thar's gold
in them thar hills."
To get our B. N. R. (Bachelor of Natural Resources), we
could major in Pulp and minor in Prospecting. A little study
on the side on such subjects as "Raising Apples" or "Raising
Flagpoles'' would not be amiss.
There are other reasons why we believe the economy cut
would be helpful rather than detrimental to the university, but
they seem to have slipped our mind.
* *   *   *
At the get-together last Friday noon students were asked
not to attach such appellations as "Zilch," "McGoofus," to blank
forms that are being circulated. We second the motion. Suoh
a thing is not only a disappointment to the Publicity Committee
but it is also an indication that there are some Muck readers
who can still look forward to the time when they will be. able
to eat with a fork, tie their own neckties and call themselves
grown-up.
conflict It appears that his research
work can be carried on almost anywhere, and that he can always be
sure of a position on the Reseach
staff of any one of a dozen American Universities.
"Of course," he said, as he ate a
hot-dog, "there is always this point
to be considered: I have been working at this University for many
years, and I should like to see it get
the credit for the long years of
preparation that I have spent here,
That," he continued, as he inhaled
a glass of milk, "wfll not be possible
now.
"And another thing; the work 1
am doing now is, as you may know,
on the brains of Freshmen. Now I
had hoped to be able, in a few
months time, to announce my method of improving them. My system
consists, broadly, of inoculating them
with a certain chemical compound.
This produces a state of hypnosis.
The Freshmen could then be lectured at, and the substance of the
professor's words of wisdom would
stay with them. The drug gradually wears off, so that he starts
thinking for himself Ey degrees. I
had dreamed of presenting this
method to my dear U.B.C, but, alas,
it will have to go to the University
that sponsors my work. It is all very
sad."
And, weeping violently, the old
man was led from the room.
Hail, U. B. C.

PUBLICITY BUREAU
BEGINS CAMPAIGN
TO SAVE VARSITY
(Continued from Page One)
vocational powers of any 2,000 of
Its citizens must be considerable.
But our interest does not stop here;
It goes on to the other students, now
In High Schools and Public Schools,
who will soon take our place as undergraduates. In a very few years our
interests and activities will be identical with yours at present. And
looking across those five or ten years
we can see promises whose realization or failure will depend, not on
anything which we can do then, but
on what you do now. We are convinced
that British Columbia will be less
capably administered, less prosperous
less far-sighted, and that the level
of its economic and social conditions
will be lower if the effective working of the University has been interrupted. And we feel sure that
the future, immediate and ultimate,
will always contain greater potentialities for improvement, and fuller
possibilities of realization, If its population receives a steady flow of
people who have received such ideas
and such training as only a properly
functioning  university  can  give.
It is in the hope, therefore, that
we may commence the period of our
usefulness as citizens at once, by
convincing you of the vital connection that exists between the welfare
of the province and the continuous
welfare of its University, that we
nre undertaking this task. The plan
we propose to follow is to distribute
in a series of letters, of which this
is the first,   Information   which   is
available to us, and which is of the
utmost importance, alike to you, to
us, and to those who are now school
children  in  this  province.    We  request that you  will preserve these
letters,   for   we   intend   that   collectively   they   shall    demonstrate   the
truth of the two propositions which
we are advancing through them, and
in  which   we   ourselves  firmly   believe, namely that,
1.   TO SUPPORT THE UNIVERSITY
IS  TO  SUPPORT  THE   PROVINCE.
II.   TO  GIVE FULL SUPPORT TO
THE PROVINCE IT IS NECESSARY TO GIVE THE SAME TO
THE UNIVERSITY.
An   institution   that   is   provincial
should    satisfy    needs    that    exist
throughout the  province.    That  the
University   fulfils   this    requirement
may be demonstrated in two ways:
(1)   by  indicating  tlie  duties  which
are performed by the venous departments of the* University;  (2)  by Indicating that tha  University  is used
by   people   from   all    parts    of   the
province.   The first of these, because
of the  space  required,  must  be  reserved for a later letter.
In considering the second a word
of caution is necessary. Figures, for
two reasons, somewhat distort thc
existing conditions. (1) The number of students from a given area
must be considered in relation to its
population, not its size. (2) There
is always a tendency for families
with   children   to   move,   often   only
temporarily, to centres of education.
In consequence of this a number of
students give Vancouver addresses
though they reside here only for the
period of their university attendance.
However, in spite of these factors
which concentrate attention on Vancouver, an analysis made two years
ago, shows that there are students
from homes that are scattered
throughout the whole of British Columbia. There are no less than ISO
post office addresses listed within
the province. That this should be
the case indicates clearly that the
response to the University is provincial,  no  local,   in  character.
Another analysis, made in 1930,
disposed, for British Columbia at
least, of the mvth that a university
is a "playground for the rich." It
revealed tlie fact thot the parents
of students attending that year were
enscged i;i. over 190 different occupations. A few it-.ms sticjtod by
chance frcm those enumerated will
indicate cbarly their va led nature
Bakers, 5; Barbers, 2; Bankers, 2;
Engineers, 49; Journalists, 3; Junk-
dealers, 3. In 1931 the President's
Report says that "while the mercantile, agricultural and professional
groups predominate, no important
profession, trade or calling is without representation." It further indicates that the first seven of these
occur in the following order: (1)
Merchants (2) Farmers (3) Doctors
(4) Railroad Employees (5) Professional Engineers (6) Lawyers (7)
Clergy,
Not only do students come to the
University of British Columbia from
all parts of the province, and from
all occupational groups in it, but
the large majority of them remain
in this country when they graduate.
A 1931 census shows that 81 per cent,
of the graduates of this University

them reside in British Columbia; 7

PUBLICITY CAMPAIGN
TO ROUSE PROVINCE
ON SUBJECT OF CUT
(Continued from Page One)
In reply to questions, it was
stated that the collection of signatures would be the climax of the
student movement, not the beginning.
Jack Thomson, President M. U. S„
advises the students who at present
know little of the subject in hand,
to get their information as soon as
possible, and aid the campaign.
A chemistry student gave it as his
opinion that further cut in supplies
is hardly possible, as shortage is already noticeable in the most elementary of lab, supplies. As example he cited the instance
of ihe chemistry lab. exhausting its
supply of common salt, and being
refused more on the grounds that
there \nz no money with which to
buy it.
In introducing the speakers, Earl
Var.ce, President A. M. S., stated
that the meeting was not one called
by the A. M. S. Don Hutchison,
President A. M. S„ 1930-31, was presented with a gold gavel in appreciation of his untiring work during
the difficult period when he held
office.

Among the newcomers to the distance running game, George Allen
la conceded an excellent chance to
break the tape in Wednesday's contest. Although his career to date
has been short, it lias been a steady
upward climb, and the husky engineer should make it hot for the
rest of the field. Alf Allan has come
out of retirement to once more show
his ability at covering long distances
in a short time, and hfs presence in
the race will greatly enhance the
chances of the Science Frosh in copping the event.
At least one prominent Varsity
runner is out of the grind. Jim
Sinclair, who has been showing his
heels to a lot of the boys in some
of the previous pavement pounding
competitions has recently undergone
an operation and will be unable to
participate in any of the track
events this spring.

's Lose
To Westminister
In Slow Tussle
Without the services of their star
guard, Jimmy Bardsley, the Senior
"B" team lost to Westminster "Y"
hoopers 16-12 Saturday night at the
Royal City gym.
New Westminster was bad but
Varaity was worse. At half time
the score had reached the stupendous total of 6-4, with Varsity on
the short end. The second canto was
even worse than the first. For one
brief moment the teams came to life
when the tally stood at 13-11. Varsity never caught the opposition, finishing the aforementioned four points
behind.
The team: Bob McDonald, Murray
McDonald, Biff McLeod, Bill Lucas,
Stokvis, Fred Bolton.
INTERMEDIATE SQUAD
DROPS EXHIBITION TILT
With only four men on hand Varsity's intermediate "A" cagers defaulted to Aces at King Edward gym
on Friday night. Although the pasteboard boys offered to start with
four men giving both teams an even
break, the officials would not allow
it as this is against league regulations.
Finally with Doug. MacCrimmon
filling in the collegians put on an
exhibition tilt. Aeea had the best
of the play throughout the contest
taking the tilt by a 36-11 count.
Following the fixture, manager
Reid signed Stewart Keats from the
Intermediate "B" squad in order to
bolster his quintette for future contests.

To Oppose
iHoopsters
Permission was given the
Basketball Club to stage a noon
hour game in the gymnasium at
which an admission fee of ten
cents could be charged to cover
the cost of a suitable gift for
Dr. Thorpe, recently acting as
the Club's physician, who haa
left for the Interior.
Oymn mats were ordered to
be repaired as a result of the
Oym Club reporting the scandalous treatment received by
the said mstts at the hands of
the rough English Rugby Club.
The crack Ellensburg Basketball Club wrote asking for a
game with U.B.C. on the basis
of a hundred dollar guarantee
for one game or one hundred
and fifty for two games. The
Varsity athletic moguls decided
that the guarantee was a little
too stiff and asked the Basketball Gub to open negotiations
with a view to gaining more
suitable terms.
A letter from the B.C. Rugby
Union was accepted gracefully,
in which some alight profits
were indicated as accruing from
the activities of the English
Rugby Club. The meeting adjourned.
J
MEN'S GRASS HOCKEY NOTICE
There will be a practice on Wednesday, February 3, at 3:30 p.m., if the
weather has sufficiently improved.
Dr. Alexander Rutherford, osteopath and surgeon with office" in the
Birks Building, har been appointed
physician to the Basketball Club.
He will succeed Dr. Thorpe who has
gone to Kelowna where he will
practice his profession.
Before coming to Vancouver Dr.
Rutherford practiced for some time
in Oklahoma where he was well
known. He has had considerable experience in handling athletic teams
in the South, and his expert services
will certainly be appreciated by the
B. C. hoopsters.
COED SQUAD
LOSES STAR
IN DELLERT
With his squad further weakened
by the loss of Berna Dellert, who
because of poor eyesight has been
forced to leave the University, Jack
Barbarie, senior co-ed hoop coach
at U.B.C. will send his proteges
against the Sparling quintette at
V.A.C. tonight. So far the girls have
taken it on the chin in all of their
league encounters but under serious squad has been improving rapidly, and should break into the win
column.
After losing all of his first string
squad except Jean Whyte and Gladys Munton, coach Barbarie has had
an almost impossible task in rebuilding his B. C. championship aggregation. It is quite likely that the team
will not be in the playoffs, but ths
co-eds should be placed close to the
top of the heap next season.
At present Jean» Whyte is the big
gun in the Varsity offense, The only
remaining member of the squad that
two years ago won a world-championship in Prague, Austria, Jean is
one of the smartest centres in the
V. and D. League.
Comments From Here and There
on lnter<Class Sports
BY DAY WASHINGTON
Inter-class basketball had another
exciting week with three more games
being run off on schedule. We are
glad to see that students are beginning
to show some enthusiasm and class
spirit by turning out to watch these
games which are certainly productive
of some good ball and are well worth
watching. Its a case of real action
from the tip-off to the final whistle.
In last Tuesday's game Arts '32 just
nosed out Arts '33 by a 24-22 count.
The game was fast and furious and
quite unhindered by any undue activity on the part of the referee. The
strenuous pace told on the third year
men who were at a disadvantage in
having to play the entire game with
the same players owing to their complete lack of available men for substitutes.
On Thursday noon Arts '35 walked
away from Arts '34 to the tune of
26-1C. Despite the impressive appearance of the sophs' line-up, the frosh
romped away with the game.
Cherub:   You   ought   to   get   some
Ghandi  furniture.
Kiku:   Ghandi furniture?
Cherub:   Yes. Crooked legs and no
drawers.

Sc. '34 and Sc. '35 engaged in a hot
battle on Saturday noon, Science '34
emerg|ng on the long end of a 16-14
count. The game opened fast and
stayed open, with hard checking featured. Freddy Bolton, member of the
sophmore engineers, lost one of his
teeth in the struggle, and as teeth do
not grow on over night we suppose
that Fred will have to pay a visit to
the dentist.
As far as the play was concerned
it was anybody's game and all we can
say is that it was a good game to win
and a tough one to lose.
This week's schedule gets under way
at noon today when Science '32 tackles
the Theologs. These games are well
worth watching and once again we
advise you to drop around and look
on. It's free.
Women's interclass basketball has
apparently gone into seclusion, only
one game having been played so far.
No definite schedule has been drawn
up as yet and it is impossible to say
definitely when the next game will be
run off, although the unconfirmed
rumor has it that the co-eds will get
into action again Wednesday or Thursday afternoon of this week.
Interclass soccer is having a hard
time these days, and as long as the
cold snap continues the loccer togs
will remain nailed to the wall; Ev
King, president of the footers, states
definitely that there will be no football this week owing to the condition
of the ground. This will not affect the
schedule materially as there are only
ten games to be played and these can
be run off ln fast order as soon as Old
Sol starts to beam.
This is the second time winter
weather has upset the schedule. The
interclass tussles were changed from
league affairs to a ten-game knockout series. And now it looks as if the
soccer lads would have to wait a
while before they get back into action.
Interclass Basketball schedule for week of
February 1:
Tuesday Noon, February 2—Science '32 vs.
Theologs.
Wednesday Noon, February 3—Science '34
vs. Aggies.
Saturday Noon, February 6—Arts '34 vs.
Science '32.
