 V*Campaign Sets 4"Bond Goal
No. 35
Mus. Soc. Operetta
Stars Marg. Haggart
• ALMOST THREE hours after the curtain had gone up
on the Musical Society's production "Yeomen of the
Guard", a large student audience, Wednesday first-nighters,
had enthusiastically endorsed the effort as "one of the best
yet" were predicting great things for Margaret Haggart.

The University of New Brunswick, commonly referred to as
U.N.B., is situated on a hill overlooking Frederickton, the provincial capital. It has only 350 students, but its reputation is remarkable.
Its Forestry course ranks second
or third on the continent. It has
the first Forest Entomology department in Canada. It's Science
and Engineering students command the highest respect everywhere. Its Arts department is now
very good. The Seniors are continually being offered scholarships
and jobs. U.N.B. men are found
all over the world.
Its campus is set above the city
of Frederickton on a sloping hill
which won for it the name "Up
the Hill." Its campus is studded
with trees and paths. Around a
general rectangle are nine buildings of which one is a .residence.
All are of brick except the Arts
Building which is of granite. Frederickton reminds one more of a
big town than a city. All the
streets are lined with huge trees
and bounding the city is the beautiful mile-wide St. John river
winding down to the seat There
are no smoky factories in the vicinity. An ideal setting, a city with
a small  town's environment.
The Lady Bnaverbrook Residence holds fifty-five boys, but the
luxuriousness of its quarters equals any rt'sidence in Canada. A
beautiful sixty-foot swimming
pool is attached which is open to
all students.
The Library is a beautiful building with stack accommodation for
100,000 volumes. Reading and study
rooms arc available.
The Forestry and Geology Building is one of the most up-to-date
buildings on the campus. It is given over primarily to those departments.
The historic Arts building is the
oldest university building in Canada. It is to-day center for all
students to gather between lectures.
Memorial Hall holds thc Physics
and Chemistry departments. It
also has a beautiful auditorium
with stained glass windows where
the Encoenia or graduation exercises are held as well as many
other social functions.
In addition there is the Engineering building, the new forest Entomology building and the remodelled old gym now used by the R.
C.A.F., but which will be turned
over to the engineering department after the war.
The pride and joy of the campus
is the new, massive Lady Beaver-
brook Gymnasium. It is a complete athletic plant with no superior in Canada. It has complete
accommodation for all types of
sport. Two thousand people at a
time have witnessed events in it.
Both sides of the building are
made up largely of glass brick.

dent who has starred in previous
Society shows, carried the brunt
of Wednesday night's performance
with a very pleasing soprano voice,
clear diction, and a stage technique
that belied traditions of the Society.
Although having had prominent
roles in both "Gondoliers" and
"Pinafore", Mis Haggart had never
before displayed the artistry with
which she charmed the student
audience Wednesday night.
As in prvious years, however,
there was a decided lack of strong,
male voices. Max Warne, in the
lead role of Colonel Fairfax, was
pleasing in his trio and quartette
work, but lacked consistency in
his solos, alternating between a
tenor and a baritone.
Bob McLellan, a freshman baritone, played the part of Sergeant
Meryll with great dispatch, while
Bob McWilliams bludgeoned his
way through the jester role with
more enthusiasm than voice.
Although the soprano work of
Miss Haggart was the standout of
the evening's performance, notable
work was done by Doreen Grant
who sang "Phoebe" with much
charm. Lacking power to carry,
Miss Grant nevertheless exhibited
a sweet soprano voice and clarity
of diction, overcoming initial stiffness to shine in the second act.
Hghlight of "Yeomen," though,
for many were eight little "gnomes"
who beetled through a military
routine in the guise of beef-eating
Yeomen of the Guard. Beoveer-
chinned, bug-eyed, the octet panicked the audience with military
manoeuvers, that would confuse a
sergeant major.
Making the best of their roles
was John Allan who handled the
comic relief part of the head jailor
with ease, and Vera Delamont, as
Dame Carruthers.
Outstanding solo of the evening
was Miss Haggart's "Tis Done, I
Am a Bride" in which all the lyrical quality of her voice was portrayed. The quartette work of
Warne, McWilliams, Miss Haggart,
and Miss Grant In "When a Wooer
Goes A-wooing" was a highlight
of an all-round second act.
Chorus work although weak in
the opening scenes picked up as
the aperetta continued, was admirable in the finale.
, The orchestra was up to Musical
Society standards which is the
nicest way of putting it, although
musical director Haydn Williams
did notable work with the cast.
Too much dependence upon Williams for timing and a stiffness of
stage presentation marred the production.
The cunning of Gilbert and Sullivan In setting the entire action
of the operetta In one location
gave stage manager Homes Gardiner and his crew an easy time.
Missing from the first-night triumph was Musical Society president, Duncan MacFayden, who left
in January to join the R.C.A.F.,
and perfusionist Fred Billings.who
for the first time in five years,
vacated his spot behind the drums,

• THE NEWS last issue announcing that the government
has offered all category "E" men at the university summer employment with handsome wages was very fine—for
category "E" men. It means that the students falling into
this class will be able to save goodly sums to continue their
education, just as thousands of workers in essential industries
are making more money now than they ever did before.
But when the future facing category "A" men is
considered, the picture is not so rosy. The government is
offering them all jobs this summer, too—but as a markedly
different rate of pay. These men are being offered jobs in
the active services, jobs which will entail vastly greater risk
to personal life than do those of civilian workers. They are
being asked to work for $1.20 a day, a sum which our category "E" friends will be able to make in two hours if they
are paid at the rate advertised.
Stephen Leacock, Canada's much-respected humorist
and economist, about a month ago expressed hi*, opinion of
the very condition we decry, in an article distributed by him
to all Canadian newspapers. In that article Professor Lea-
cock, while heartily agreeing with war workers receiving
good wages, pointed out the rank injustice of holding them
up as just as big self-sacrificing heroes as their brothers who
are on active service. He humbly suggested that if these
men, admittedly very essential in winning the war, were
worth five or eight dollars a day, most certainly the ones
in uniform were, too.
After all, it may be very nice for the fellow in a uniform to be looked on fondly by dear old ladies or to receive
praise from fat business men comfortably sitting in their safe
offices now, but when the war is over it will be the ones
with these industrial jobs, who have made money that will
be the fortunate ones. The lot of the men who returned
from the last war to a society which many of them found
had no place for them is an unfortunate situation which
might occur again unless the present set-up is recognized.
If the fellows who are pronounced physically the most
superior in the land are expected to go out and fight, it is
only natural they should expect to receive as much for
their services as the ones, who because of their physical deficiencies, are allowed to stay home and work. It is all very
well to think of ideals, but money talks.
Red Cross Room Open 3 Days Weekly
All Necessary Equipment Except Girls
• ALL DAY Tuesdays and
Fridays and Mondays
from 12:30 the door of the
Red Cross Room stands wide
open, waiting for co-eds' who
have an hour or two to spare
to step in side and lend their
The room is bright and cheerful.
There is all necessary equipment
there — needles, thread, sewing
machines,  piles  of   materials  and
half-finished garments. There is
intricate sewing for those who
know how and simple stitching for
beginners. And there is always
someone there to help those who
are in difficulty.
Sorority and Phrateres girls on
the campus spend at least two
hours a week in the Red Cross
Room. Phrateres have been doing
work on quilts in addition to all
the work they do on Self Denial
But very few independent girls
— non-sorority and non-Phrateres
have appeared in the room. From
15 to 20 take part in First Aid
clases, leaving several hundred
doing little or nothing for the University War Effort.
Those girls who absolutely can
not knit or sew can still register
for First Aid classes under Miss
Kerr. Anyone wishing to do so
can register in the Dean of Women's office.
Victory Week
Features Jabez,
Tags, Dance
VICTORY BONDS!" This is the objective of the last
concentrated campus-wide effort of the term to be staged
by the War Aid Council next week—two hundred dollars
with which to buy four bonds for the Alma Mater Society.
Only three feature events are billed for the week, but
the committee in charge is confident the objective will be
more than reached when returns from Monday, Wednesday
and Saturday's headline attractions are totalled.
Jabez Shits—Reifel Hits
To start the drive off with a bang, Varsity's Victory Varieties,
, an hour-long program literally jumping with jive and lathered with
laughter, will be staged in the Auditorium on Monday, March 2, at noon.
George Reifel's ten men of music will supply the lyrical atmosphere for
an hilarious skit produced by the Players' Club, and written by the
Ubyssey's one and only JABEZ.
This witty satire, named "Her Sciencemen Lover,"  or "The
Birth of a Nation," Is written In the Inimitable style that only our Jabei
can produce; and enacted by some of the Players' Club's more illustrious
actors, under the direction of Lister Sinclair, should prove to be the
term's outstanding dramatic presentation on the campus.
Mr. Reifel has given his solemn promise that his jive-men will
confine themselves to producing a jam-session, the like of which has
never been heard at U.B.C, to round out the biggest hour's entertainment
to be offered for ten cents this year.
Volunteer Day
On Wednesday, March 4, (the committee figures it will take"twb
days to get over Monday's performance) Self-Denial Day will be replaced
by a Victory Volunteer Day. Special tags inscribed with the touching
message "I helped to buy a Victory Bond" will be issued to all students
who contribute coins to swell the fund to buy Victory Bonds.
Enthusiastic co-eds will do their weekly can-can act at the
usual stands; and taking returns from Self-Denial Days as criteria, officials believe this day will bring in almost $100 for the special fund.
The Varsity Victory Dance on Saturday night featuring the
orchestra whose popularity is Increasing more every tuna out, Battel's
Varsity V-Men, Is tfie third and final attraction lined up for this last
money-drive of the term.
One dollar a couple is the price of admission to this Victory
Dance for the privilege of putting the drive over the top, and incidentially,
dancing to the hottest music in town. Dancing will be from 8:80 till 11.
Set Objective
"We hope to be able to buy four Victory Bonds with, tho money
raised next week," stated John Carson, chairman of the War Aid CouncU'a
Victory Bond Committee. "These bonds will be made out to the Alma
Mater Society for the use of the students who will be here ten years
from now—to remind them that we helped win the war which made the
university safe for them."
Other War Aid Council members on the Committee are Elizabeth
Hebb, Mary Mulvin, Jack Currie and Keith Ralston.
The committee plans to approach every member of the faculty
for individual donations to the students Varsity Victory Bond campaign.

All the work in the show has
been done this year, except for tho
small watercolour "Souvenir of
Paris." This was done on Mr.
Shadbolt's last day In Paris some
five years ago.
Since then, he has been teaching at the Vancouver School of
Art and recording in excellent
drawings and fine paintings not
only the physical idiom of life here
in B.C., but also the intellectual
processes of a receptive mind.

Everyone Dig Deep
"What, another campus drive for money?" Sure, we know that's probably what
you exclaimed when you first read the headlines of today's Ubyssey. And we agree with
you that they have been coming rather thick
and fast the last few months.
But, so have the Japs been coming thick
and fast, and they are getting a little too
close for comfort when we hear of their
visitations to the California Coast. After
all, if they are prowling around down there,
they may very likely pay us a visit soon—
we are much closer to Japan than is California.
So far the government has concluded
our job in this war is to stay here at U.B.C.
and finish our courses so as to fit ourselves
for the various tasks that lie ahead. The
great majority of students appreciate this
opportunity to continue getting an education
while other young people our age are being
called up for military service, and have
shown their appreciation by responding
marvellously to the many functions and
drives put on during the year for war
Now the War Aid Council announces its
final drive of the year, and we are sure the
students will put forth every effort to make
the Varsity Victory Bond campaign successful. Everyone realizes the meagre finances
of a student (especially at this time of year)
are such that purchase of a whole bond is
impossible. However, if we all club together
we can easily buy four $50 bonds, and in
so doing help both our country and our university's future students. Come on, Canada,
and Let's Go, Varsity!
Canadian Nationalism
One of the greatest discoveries made by
Canadians since the start of the war is that
we lack a national consciousness. It is pointed out that when Canada went to war, instead of sending speakers down to the United States to tell them how we were fighting
the Nazi menace, we imported American
speakers to tell us how it should be done—
this was especially true of the "Let's Face
the Facts" series sponsored by the C.B.C.   ,
This lack of national consciousness has
become especially apparent in recent weeks
with regard to the conscription fracas and
the consequent plans for the plebiscite. If
we had a loud enough and strong enough
national opinion the plebiscite with its accompanying disputes, disunity, expense and
delay would be entirely unnecessary. King
would KNOW whether we wished to relieve
him of his commitments—he would not have
to ask us formally.
Being a considerably smaller nation
than the United States we have apparently
formed the habit of looking to them for
leadership, even though we have proven
ourselves to be quite capable of original and
decisive action on our own. The ingenious
invention of War Savings Stamps was first
adopted in Canada, and has proved so successful that it has been copied by the States.
It is quite* likely that the latter country will
also find it necessary to adopt some form of
price and salary restrictions similar to legislation already passed by the Canadian parl
iament, and although it does not necessarily
mean that the U. S. will be following our
lead, it does indicate our ability to show
intelligence and initiative in our national
What we need in Canada is stronger
national sentiment, nationalism, if you will,
and patriotism. Here is where we can advisedly follow the example of the United
States and in so doing strengthen our own
national consciousness by becoming more
patriotic. Our lack of this essential, even
more necessary in war time, may be indicated by the realization that no Canadian
would have the courage to announce, as
Americans have on many occasions: "Our
Country, may it always be right, but Our
Country, right or wrong!" or even to compose a song such as "I Am An American."
We must throw off our Canadian inferiority complex—our effort when translated into U.S. terms of population and resources is tremendous. We do not intimate
that what we are doing or have done is
enough and that we can now slacken our
pace, but there is no reason to be ashamed
of our people, our country, our armed forces
or our war effort. We should remember that
we are Canadians, and Canadians have always shown they can do at least as much
as the next nation. We are Canadians, from
Canada, fighting for freedom and justice.
We should be proud of it.

By Frank Dickson
• IF ONE WERE ASKED how best we can be of assistance in this present emergency,
it would be difficult to formulate an all-inclusive reply. There are so many lines of endeavour, all of which may be of importance to varying degrees. Some will be required for
the various arms of the Service abroad, while others must serve in those same services at
home; others will fill essential posts in industry and still others will remain as non-combatant civilians carrying on as best they may in their regular routine of activity. At any
time, the fluctuations in the fortunes of war may alter the relative importance of these
various groups so that one, which at first seems to be of minor importance may even be
instrumental in deciding the final outcome of the struggle. Lack of preparedness has been
evident in so many instances in the past that it is as well to take stock of the situation
while time still remains.
Physical Fitness
Without attempting to argue
concerning all the possibilities of
service, I will place before you
one which is of great Importance,
namely, the attaining and maintaining of the highest possible degree of physical fitnijas by all
members of the community. I
would even go so far as to say
that we are, each and everyone of
us, derelict in our duty if we fail
to give this matter our urgent consideration. This is a period in our
national life which demands, perhaps as never before, qualities of
great physical and moral fortitude,
stamina and resourcefulness in
every citizen, male or female, at
home or in the armed forces and
these qualities can only reach their
maximum where physical fitness
Much has been said to suggest
that the many disquieting initial
successes of German armies have
been due to superior mechanized
equipment. This is undoubtedly
largely true but, when the final
word has been written on the
history of this present carnage, we
shall find that the men behind
these machines have been of the
utmost importance and that the
final victory will have been won
on the basis of virility of manpower.
Let us look for a brief moment
at tho importance which has been
attached to this matter in the
various embattled countries. One
of the major changes made in the
educational system of Germany
upon assumption of power by the
Nazis was to stress athletics. Tho
youth movement was developed
and. while there ere many ignoble
features of this movement, one of
their alms was to build up a physically fit younger generation, anticipating, as well they could, the
part to be played by youth in the
Following the first Russo-Fin-
nish war, the Finnish State Board
of education announced plans for
the intensification of physical
training for the 43,000 punUs in
Secondary Schools as a preparation for national defence. At the
same time, the Board of Directors
of the State University in Helsinki announced a compulsory
sports programme for the 7000 students at the University, not only
to improve the general health but
to build up a strong will and endurance for defence. The men,
of course, were mostly on the reserve of officers while all would
go forth to become leaders in the
communities where they would
preach the gospel of sound body
development. Girls are also Included in this programme as it is
equally vital that the women too
be physically fit and have steady
nerves to enable them to play
their part in national defence. Beginning with the fall term of 1941,
every student was required to enroll either in basic physical training or in some form ot active sport.
Those unfit for such activities
were required to act as linesmen,
referees, score keepers and managers.
In England
Then again, in England, the inadequacy of the sport and recreational facilities for the youth
of the country was recognized by
the passing of the Physical Training and Recreational Act in 1937
This provided for the erection of
playing fields, gymnasia and
swimming pools not only to care
for the needs of the school populations but also for the vital factory
workers, realizing that a wisely
directed and comprehensive
scheme of physical education results in a desire for bodily fitness,
a greater capacity for comradeship
and a higher appreciation of true
chivalry and good sportsmanship.
In November 1940 a circular of the
Board of Education of England
stated that "It must be emphasized that if young people are to
make their full contribution to the
service of their country they must
bring to it a fit body and the
alertness of mind that bodily fitness produces. The more they
realize that the maintenance of
their health and fitness is not only
a personal duty but is, in itself,
an act of service to the country,
the more ready they will be to
take part in regular physical training." The oft-quoted saying that
"the Battle of Waterloo was won
on the playing fields of Eton" has
undoubtedly some basis in fact.
Further, one of the first steps
taken by the Vichy government of
France following the debacle of
their collapse before the German
onslaught was to provide for intensive physical training of the
remaining youth of thc country in
order to bolster their morale, a
step which was too late to save
the country from defeat.
In America
Are we also to be too late in
recognizing the importance of this
matter? Already the Secretary oi
the United States' Navy has said,
"From the experience the navy
has hod in examining men for
service,  it is clear that our educ-

Imagine my surprise when I picked up Tuesday's Ubyssey and saw
the  following   description   of   my
speech  given  at  the  I.C.R.   Conference last week in Seattle:
"Helen Manning, in her paper
on the British Empire, cleared
up many obscure points as to
the   Commonwealth,   although
obvious  mis-statements which
she   inserted   to   catch   them
slipped by unnoticed. "I could
have told them we paid tribute
in skins to Great Britain and
they might have believed it."
she Indicated.
That's absolutely false! I challenge anyone to find one single
mis-statement in my speech — I
have the paper with me now exactly as I read it. Where the male
delegate (reporter, too) got that
Idea, I don't know.
I demand justice — to clear my
name, also the International Relations Club, of such charges as
obvious mis-staternents were inserted to catch the delegates. What
good would our presence do at
Seattle (after much trouble about
passports and foreign exchange) If
we gave the Americans wrong information?
Yours indignantly,

Editor, the.Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
On Tuesday of this week "One
Man's Opinion" held out the proverbial red rag — so here comes
one after it. Many of us would
like to see liquor abolished, not
because we are spoil sports, but
rather because liquor has an Inhibiting effect on health. Certainly Sylvanus Apps of Hockey fame
is not an old woman when he says,
"Anyone who wants to succeed In
athletics and maintain his place
should regard abstinence as a first
conditioner." Neither could we
justly call King Clancy a spoil
sport. It ,was he who said, "Success In athletics demands accurate
perception, cool judgment, responsive muscles and an enduring will,
Alcohol discounts these" The best
person alcohol can serve as a beverage is a dead person — it is
good for pickling.

ational institutions have tended to
neglect the ^physical education of
American youth for their intellectual development." In spite of
the fact that highly trained athletes are produced south of thc
border the mass of the population
enjoys its sports from the bleachers, the radio or the newspapers.
This has also been true, although
to a much less extent, in this
country. In the old pioneering
days, strong healthy bodies were
built by hard work and outdoor
exposure. The machine age, while
it has its advantages, has so
smoothed our path that the necessity for physical exertion has
been so much reduced that we are
rapidly becoming a generation of
Now is the time when everyone
should think seriously of this
matter and more wholesale participation in endurance-building and
character-moulding sports should
be encouraged, for the very qualities required for the effective defence of one's country are those
which are engendered on the playing fields. No one can foretell how
soon we may be called upon to
hold the battle front and war is
the most strenuous and exacting
of all competition with life and
all that we hold dear at stake. In
the words of the scout motto,
therefore, let us "Be Prepared",

O AN IDEA is getting under way
in the States to have universities drop their holiday periods
for the duration, in order to speed
the education of trained men and
women budly needed in the war
effort. From what several leading
educators had to say on the University of Chicago Round Table
program last Sunday morning,
this scheme may become a reality
In an institution such a3 this,
where a great portion of the students earn their fees by getting
summer jobs, such an idea is apt
to meet with opposition. Nevcr-
the less it is easy to see why it
is Leing put forward in other
places Perhaps students and faculty, tackling the problem together
could form some plan which would
give a lead to other Canadian universities
The need for speed in training
men and women is all the more
urgent here in B.C., where we lie
right along one of the enemy's best
invasion paths. Whether or not ho
will take that path is not for us
to know. If he should, then all
of life would take on a different
pattern without any direction from
Be that as it may, U.B.C. may
well have to face up soon to the
problem of running all year long.
At least one leading American educationalist believes that both our
universities and high schools will
be doing this for a long time after the war.
• AFTER SOME years absence
from the campus, you begin to
wonder if the students of today
still wander in the sunlight along
Marine Drive ... If the basement
steps of the Library are still a
dating place for drives home at
10 at night ... If earnest young
men with glasses still argue socialism in the caf over endless cups
of tea ... If Prof. Gage ls still a
wizard at lifting poor trig .students
out ot the morass of failure . . .
if student night audiences at Musical Society performances still
laugh in the wrong places . . .
if certain sections of the Science
Building still smell ... if Dr.
Morsh still hates Freud ... If
Mr. Soward still reads a dozen
books a week ... if the night
watchman still gets a relish out of
throwing students out of buildings
after hours ... if the volumes of
old exam papers in the Library
still receive the attention that
wears them out in two weeks in
March ... if my Initials are still
carved on a seat in the Auditorium
... if Anglican theologs still look
underfed ... if the Arts letter
boxes still contain piles of unclaimed letters ... If Bill Orchard
has yet pinched anyone for speeding ... If Prof. Wood still tells
freshmen things that shock them
... If the student body as a whole
those most important subjects, the

[— a cheese factory, a little over
a sling shot's throw from the science building.
Yes, there exists on the campus
of the University of British Columbia a real, honest-to-goodness
cheese factory.
Tucked away near the Aggie
barns, is a small lowslung building where big 85 pound cakes of
yellow and cream coloured cheese
come out daily and find their way
eventually into homes all over
Started by the university, originally, thc place is now operated
hy the Mcdoswcct Dairy Products
Co., which employs seven men in
the making of cheddar cheese,
known commercially as "Canadian
Mild", and Cheshire cheese.
The cheese making process is an
interesting one, which requires
days of patient work. From the
minute the milk cans come rolling
off the truck from the sleek, fat
cows of Sumas and Chilliwack,
the milk is subjected to constant
sampling, grading, testing, heating,
and stirring.
Tho milk is first dumped into
a vat and brought under the influence of acids at a temperature
of 86 degrees to ripen it. The
cheese coloring is then added
(rennet) end the milk coagulates,
after which it is cut Into small
cakes and agitated in the vat. It
is then cooked for several hours
at 104 degrees until the whey Is
drawn off, leaving the solids. The
yield from the milk is about 10%.
After that comes the cheddaring
process; the solids are turned until they are "flaky" and then
cut into pieces again. It sets for
awhile, then is salted, sets again,
then put into molds overnight to
press into shape. The cheese (it's
cheese now) sets for about ten
days,    being    constantly    turned

• DISAPPOINTED SKIERS heard last week that the Inter-faculty Ski Meet, scheduled to be held last Sunday
on Grouse Mountain, was cancelled because of lack of entrants and icy condition of the slopes. No plans for the meet
have been drawn up as yet, but it may be held in the near
future, if enough will turn out to compete.
  But on Seymour, the Blue anx
Gold boys are represented ably
by one George Wood, who last
Sunday placed first In the Slalom
race, and two weeks ago came
third in the same event. He was
uncertain about his plans, but will
probably run in every race open
to him for the rest of the season.

Varsity ski club girls competing
for the title, one of the most treasured possessions from tne feminine
point of view.
With this increased activity of
the club, it would seem that next
year it will be one of the most
popular on the campus. Complaints
are being registered concerning
the lack of interest that the girls of
the campus have been showing in
this sport, and all girls who are
interested are again urged to turn
out for the club and for the University.
