Pass Eight Resolutions at Quiet Meeting
Canadian Wheat
Topic Of Film
Society Showing
Pictures in Aud.
Tuesday- Noon
Open to Students
The ordinary Individual haa waited for a long time for a motion picture atudy of Canada's life-giving
Industry, wheat production. A number of outstanding films have been
produced In the last year and are
now being released ln the Dominion
to further the realization on the part
of all Canadians of what their great
industry  means  to  the  world.
FARMER TO BUSINESSMAN
The University Film Society brings
two of these to the campus on Tuesday, February 27, for a noon hour
showing starting at 12:30 p.m.
First is "Fulfilment," made In
Oreat Britain and dealing with the
relationship between the Canadian
farmer and the world bualnaaa man.
Canadian "Octobers" aa bought and
aold on the London market are
traced from their hasardoua beginnings In the field to the flour mills
of the Empire.
The effect on prlcea of rumoura of
war ln the Balkana, and the apeedy
reaction to news that bad weather
is expected at harvest time in Manitoba are dramatically portrayed.
Scenes show the Canadian prairie at
the advent of a storm, and the subsequent   rain-sodden   harvest.
WHEAT THEME
The second film ia "Heritage."
Thla film challenges compariaon with
"The Plow That Broke The Plaina"
and deala with the recent drought
areas of the Canadian West. Its
theme Is wheat, Canada's Heritage,
the waateful methoda uaed in the
paat and the new hope for the future through aupervised rehabilitation of the dry areas.
Both theae films of topical interest are being shown free to the
atudenta by the Film Sooiety in
keeping with ita new policy. Other
noon hour ahowlnga will follow.
Soph And Frosh Class
Parties To Be Held
In Union Building
The dates of the Sophomore and
the Frosh Class Parties have been
announced. Arts '43 will be on March
7; Arts '42 will be on March 22. Both
affairs will be held in the Brock
Memorial Building.
As usual, Freshmen will draw for
their partners. This system causes a
good deal of fun for the participants
who scour the campus days beforehand in search of the prospective
John Smi til or Mary Jones, as the
case may be.
Ruled by the iron hand of councilman Darrell Braidwood, campus
"dictator," the Canadian Student
Assembly held one of the mildest
meetinga in ita turbulent career at
3:30 "Wednesday afternoon.
At the same time it risked permanent dissolution on the campua
when It endorsed by a amall majority, the drafting of a queationnalre
to be circulated on the campua ascertaining atudenta' viewa on conscription.
CONSCRIPTION QUESTIONNAIRE
An hour long discussion on the
proposed queationnalre, which must
first receive council approval came
as a climax to a meeting which
passed eight resolutions by unanimous vote and with very little argument.
Introduced by Archie Bain, Social
Problems Club president, the questionnaire motion drew the fire of
Russell Palmer, Don McOlll, Ruth
Wilson, Alfred Carlsen and other
student apeakera who contended
that the C.S.A. waa treading on dangeroua ground by bringing up the
conaorlption laaue.
COUNCIL WILL FROWN
They argued that the C.S.A.'a main
aim at preaent ahould be to attempt
reinstatement by presenting the
council with a satisfactory report.
The proposed questionnaire, would,
they intimated, be frowned on by
Counoil and jeopardise the life of
the suspended organisation.
Shellah Hutchinson, Assembly
president, replied that the C.S.A.
should have nothing to fear In bringing an issue of thla nature before
the public.
"We are here to draft a program,"
ahe declared. "If a queationnalre
forma part of our future plans, then
we have no business in leaving it
out."
PLAN ENDORSED
The gathering of almost 160 students endorsed the questionnaire
plan by a majority of 14 votes.
Resolutions paaaed by Wednesday's
conference included plana to reatore
the one and one half hour noon
period, suggestions that mimeographed lecture notes be given to
students ln many couraea, recommendationa that atudenta study academic problem*, with faculty members, provisals for setting up a chair
of international relations and an
employment bureau, and a suggestion that professors be picked on
their ability to present their subject to studenta.
Plans were laid for two atudent
commissions—one to study French
Canada and national unity, the second to present an analysis of present
day  war  profiteering.

Fails in Attempts to Cure Waddle
"Well,  waddle  we   do  about  it?"
That's how Betty co-ed is greeting
her waddle-suffering sisters on the
campus this week, as a result of research done by Oreek Professor Geoffrey B. Riddehough.
Co-eds are trying every means
known to get away from the ducklike swing, which, according to the
observant professor, ts unique among
Vancouver lassies. They have walked
chalk-lines. they have balanced
heavy volumes on their heads, they
have practised for hours before looking-glasses. They have even persuaded male admirers to carry their waddle-producing loads of books for
them.
To no avail—the waddle still remains.
Resigned to their fate, the campus
•beauties are soothing their chagrin
by venting their wrath in the direction of Professor Riddehough, who
continues to gaze from the window
of his office in the arts building, at
the book-laden co-eds in the quad
below.
Josephine College feels that, though
she may waddle, the Classics professor needn't have pointed lt out to
her. Josephine's self respect is ruined.
Several co-eds intimated that Professor R. was spending too much time
gazing at comely waddlers and too
little time studying Oreek. Several
charged that males were worse than
women when it came to posture.
Others believed that the waddle was
"cute".
At any rate, one thing ls certain—
the waddle ls here to stay I

CLARK ALLEGES PREFERENCE
SHOWN IN ORCHESTRA ISSUE
Oil Clark is mad I
That's putting it mildly—Oil Clark ls red hot and boiling.
The slim young orchestra leader believes he has been dealt a
crooked hand, and he doesn't mince words when he talks about it.
If matters continue as they have much longer, OU Clark Is
going to resign, and the Varsity Dance Orchestra, which could
be a great asset to University social life, will probably fold up.
UNION  THREATENS
It all started when the Students' Council told Oil that he
couldn't play for the Newman Club dance ln the Brock Memorial
Building on February a because the Vancouver Musicians' Union
was getting rather ugly. In fact, said union had threatened to
keep downtown orchestras away from Varsity pep meets ahould
Oil's non-union band render music for the Newmans.
It was a bitter pill for Oil and his eleven student musicians
to swallow but they grinned cheerfully and continued to practise.
Then came the bombshell.
Exactly one week after the Varsity orchestra was banned
for non-unionism, another non-union orchestra played for
another Varsity function In the Brock Building.
Fred Holllngsworth, and his six-piece orchestra who played for the B.C. Teacher's Federation Dance on February 13,
belongs to no union.
"What we of the Varsity dance orchestra want to know," Oil
told the Ubyssey, "ls why we, a student organization, were discriminated against. Surely the non-union bugaboo can't hold If
non-union orchestras are allowed to play for other Varsity functions."
WHAT'S WRONG?
"Holllngsworth's orchestra also played for the Aggie Barn-
dance.'' Oil reminded. "Why the discrimination? What's the matter with a Varsity organization?"
The student orchestra-leader Intimated that he would resign
if no proper explanation was forthcoming from the Students'
Council.
Leap Year Luck!
CO-EDS PLAN
GRAND BALL
FOR MALES
Varsity boys are being very attentive to their feminine acquaintances
these days. The Co-ed Ball ls less
than a week away.
On February 20, the girls will be
the hosts at a Leap Year dance in
the Brock Building. They will coll
for the boys, escort them to the
party, and then choose their partners
for the dances. Along one wall will
be a feminine stag line, which will
survey the dancers with a disdainful
air.
Mart Kenney and his Western
Oentlemen will provide the music.
The dance will be Informal.
Tickets, at $2.00 a couple may be
obtained from Ray Adamson or Betty
Thomas, or from the quad box office.
Boving Will Address
Congregation In May
Signal honor has been accorded
one o| the University's best-known
figures in an announcement made
Wednesday night by  the Senate.
Dr. Paul A. Boving, professor emeritus in Agronomy, will make the
congregational address in May. Prof.
Boving joined the unlversty stall ln
1916; he received the degree of LL.
D , honoris causa, last fall.
Dr. Boving holds the degree of
Cand. Ph. from Malmo. Sweden, and
Cand. Agr. from Alnarp, Sweden. He
ls. ln the opinion of his former colleagues in the -Agriculture Department, "One of the most fluent platform-speakers   in   the   province."
Electricians
Turn The Heat
On "Gondoliers"
The local purveyors of electric
power should be happy about the
Musical Society production, "The
Oondollers."
For, in order to bring that lovely
roay complexion to the cheeks of
Ollbert and Sullivan's Viennese characters, it is necessary to use in the
space of one second enough electric
power to feed every light in every
house in two city blocks for a similar  period.
The total power used on stage in
this week's performance is a col-
losal 40,000 watts, an equivalent of
08 horse-power, and that's a fair
amount of energy whether it's on
the hoof or under the bonnet of a
modern motor car.
In fact, the gondoliers and their
friends ought to be happy too . . .
tnat thia Isn't the Dark Ages when
stages were lit by candlea. We've
more or less forgotten our elementary physics, but just imagine the
heat generated by 40,000 watts, candle-power equivalent.
In passing, we might say that
there are 47 foot lights in four circuits and three colours using a total
of about 6000 watts. Overhead lighting effects, consisting of three borders of sixteen 000-watt lights apiece,
take another 24,000 watts. An additional 10,000 watts is consumed by
floodlights, spots and pin-spots, to
produce those special effects which
provide the finishing touches to the
scene.

MORE DIGNITY,
TRADITION
AT MONTREAL
The University of British Columbia
hasn't the dignity, tradition or experience of McOlll University, according to Stewart Jamieson, N.F.C.
U.S. exchange scholar, ln an Interview with the McOill Dally ln Montreal last week.
TRADITION-STEEPED
"Montreal Impressed me very much,
namely because it ls steeped ln tradition," the former U.B.C. student
stated, as he went on to contrast McOlll University with U.B.C.
"There ls more dignity, tradition
and experience here than at U.B.C,"
he believed. "The students take their
studies more seriously, but at the
University of British Columbia we
have closer co-operation with regard
to inter-faculty fellowship. This Is
largely due to the Pep Club, which
organizes student spirit on the campus."
COMPARES SOCIETIES
Jamieson went on to explain and
compare the UB.C. Students Council,
Musical Society and newspaper to Interested "Daily" reporters.
Together with Charles Oraham,
exchange student from Dalhousle
University, he expressed gratitude to
the N.F.C.U.S. for enabling them to
study at another University.
Exchange scholars under the plan
visit a university for a year, tuition
free, and then return to their home
institution.

Symposium Today
An entirely new type of discussion
—the symposium debate, will be featured at 3:30 this afternoon in the
Brock Memorial Building when Austin Delany and Leonard Korsch of
the Parliamentary Forum meet
Harry Henrichsen and Carl Robertson of the University of Waahlngton.
There is no decision in a symposium. Speakers merely analyze the
topic, ln thia case "What Should
America's   Foreign   Policy   Be."
Robertson will present the background of the case. Then Korsch
will state the caae for Canada. Henrichsen will follow with the American poaltlon. Delany will sum up
the   arguments   of   both   sidea.

balance and finished details added
to the charm of their gay aonga.
Individually, too, they deserve warm
praise for their solos, Constance
Busby and Tatauo Sanmiya especially for artistic performance.
Derek MacDermot as Don Alham-

Risks Life to Stow Away in Bomber
OZZIE DURKIN
Lee Straight and I were stowaways on the Stranraer bomber
which dropped pamphlets and almost lost a motor over the University campus Wednesday noon.
POOR   THINOS
It was obvious to us, as soon as
we were discovered, that the University will have no trouble beating the
Air Force at Hockey or any other
game they might like to play. The
first thing the crew said, when they
had dragged us from our cramped
quarters, was, "Have you got a crust
of bread in your pocket, friends? Or
a banana peel? We haven't eaten
for a week!"
There was a madman at the controls of the ship. Laughing and sobbing hysterically, he tried to force
us—at the point of a gun -to crawl
out on the wing and fasten the end
of   it   to   the   northern   stadium   flag-
iPole. When we flatly refused, he
offered to fly the ship six feet off
the ground so that we could pass
handbills out the windows to our
friends.
CRAZV CREW
The gaunt, unkempt crew seemed
to ba starved slap-happy. When the
port motor stopped juat as we were
about to do a loop, they didn't look
worried. They just pointed out the
window and gibbered childishly
"Shucks. Sounds just like a machine
gun. don't it?"
There ls absolutely no morale in
the enemy camp. Plotn nre being
laid to overthrow superior officers;
the men are tired of sci-aping the
rust off rifles and torpedoe.-i; and the
hockey-sticks tholr men will use
against U.B.C. aro cracked and rotten.
And as for flying with an All-
Force   pilot- never  again!!

Editorials
NO STUDENT VOTE?
It would appear from articles in the newspapers of Eastern
Universities that 'out-of-town' students are to be unable to vote
in the coming federal elections. The actual ruling whieh has
virtually disenfranchised these students is not clear, but the
■tudents in the East are nevertheless profoundly disturbed over
the question.
At the present time no complaints have been publicly voiced
on this campus as to such n ruling, and it has been' assumed that
no such problem has arisen for University of B.C. non-resident
students.
But if a situation has been brought about where a certain body
of students are unable to use their franchise, steps should be taken
to rectify it. Students spend much time eulogizing the merits
of democracy, and are presumably interested in any opportunity
to take an active part in running their country.
Two senior students at the Law School in Toronto University
wrote a heated letter to the editor of the Varsity stating:
"Approximately one thousand university students have now
lost a voice in an election issue whieh in war time is most vital.
If the soldiers in the Expeditionary Force may express their voice,
certainly the soldiers not yet in uniform should be heard. Should
the benefits of higher education be stifled? Shall we take this
violation of our democratic rights lying down? . . . Kill Hitlerism
at home!"
Consequently ono is lead to believe thnt the problem is moderately serious, and one cannot but think thnt some remedial
measures should be instituted.
MOBILIZING WORDS
We take pleasure in reprinting in today's issue two editorials
from "The Varsity," the undergraduate newspaper nt tho University of Toronto.    They are  both too good to be missed :
Every individual comes into a world of prearranged physical
and social environment. Each is required to adjust his organism
to this environment. [We have a definite social environment; the
Hottentot has another.
The sociological set-up consists of words to a surprising extent. We have to learn the meaning of words and phrases that
everlastingly infringe upon vis. For the most part we acquire
only a vague idea of the express significance of many of these
verbal infringements.
It is said that reason gives clarity and that emotion imparts
colour to life. Our emotionnl nature is older and less discriminating than our rational powers. The emotional element makes it
possible to appreciate lofty thoughts and sentiments, and it also
places a definite check on this faculty. Our emotions make it
comparatively easy for us to be hateful, resentful nnd jealous.
Emotion is essentially primitive.
Many of our most effective words are freighted with partiality. We automatically make the words an integral part of our
thought behaviour. Seldom do we pause to realize whether or not
they actually function to our advantage. The commercial advertiser knows how mere words impress the public, and he makes
them work for him. He informs the readers how a certain brand
of this or that gives them "pep" 6r "success." Also there nre
words charged with explosives,—words which are "dynamite,"
so to speak. Such are: religion, liberty, democracy, friend. Red,
enemy, atheist, savage. As a rule we do not analyze these terms;
we -accept them for the most part at their conventional, face value,
scarcely knowing how wo came to possess them.
Chancellor Hitler is somewhat of an artist in the effective portrayal of words. He knows that bombastic rhetorie arouses the
emotional fire of man. When Hitler wishes to be expressly impressive, he speaks, not of the Reich, but of "eighty millions of
.Germans.''
Of course every nation is not only justified, but is duty bound,
-when at war, to muster its verbal as well as its military resources
in such a manner as to be most potent in enheartening its own
people and in disheartening the foe. Let the Allies, with a reasonable consideration for consistency and self-respect, mobilize
their verbal battalions in such a way as to effect the greatest advantage for themselves and a maximum of damage for their enemy.
JUST ANOTHER SLANT
It would appear that "success" and "brains" are not invariably interchangeable terms. The sponge, for example, has never
distingtiished itself on strictly academic grounds. Yet the simple
many-celled organism has succeeded in maintaining its status on
this planet for possibly half a billion years, and is still a growing-
going concern.
Of course the sponge has not achieved this enviable foat by
reason of nny marked intellectual capacity. Tndeed. so far from
having n highly-organized cerebrum with which to think, it does
not possess even the rudiments of n nervous system. There exist
2,500 species of sponge, not one of whieh can boast of nny more
intelligence  than a piece of liver.
We may hopefully deduce from this that the ultimate survival
of the human race need not depend, in final analysis, on that extraordinary property we call brains.
Crackling
of Thorns
By D.  KAHMA
(NOTE: The following article la
representative of meet of the contributions received. The name of
the writer la withheld on her own
request.)
One would not have thought a ysar
ago that anyone In his senses would
ever associate Confucius with Mae
West, but now, alas, theee two personages have, ln the minds of certain
people, beoome forever related. A few
years ago, smutty stories about Miss
Went were all the rage; now, smutty
stories, couched In supposedly pic
turesque language, are being attributed to Confucius. Even ln his cups,
I am sure that the great Chinese
sage never said any of the things
with which he is now being credited.
Undoubtedly, the remarks are the
work of some gag-man living ln New
York or some would-be-gag-man residing ln Boise or Sioux Olty. Con-
fuclan Is definitely worse confounded.
But this Idea of making a Chinese
philosopher the source of what the
Victorians quaintly termed "risque
remarks" ls typical of our age. The
ever-energetic serpent of sex crawls
everywhere and is now writhing happily ln the rice fields of Chinese phi-
losophy. Probably he will next be
found sunning himself on the mountain of the Reformation teachings.
His special garden, of course, is
contemporary literature. Nowadays,
even the most sheltered maiden can
experience vicariously all the more
sordid episodes of life, and can, with
a little effort, learn all the questionable words ln our language. Provided
that she belongs to a good lending
library, and provided that her mother
does not supervise her reading too
closely, she can, as a result of a study
of the works of Messrs. Joyce, D. H.
Lawrence, Farrell, Faulkner. Hemingway and others, talk glibly of matters
which are better left within the
covers of a treatise on abnormal psychology. To do this, she feels, ls very
modern, very much a thing of the
world of today.
But ls lt of the world of tomorrow,
of that marvellous world of the New
York World's Fair Diorama with lt-
skyscraper apartment blocks and
high speed traffic lanes? Certainly,
we feel, frankness ln the novel is
here to stay. But is lt? After all.
compare "Tom Jones" with "David
Copperfleld". Not a great many yeais
elapsed between the publication of
the two books and yet what a world
of difference.
And anyone who studies the comedies of the Restoration Period Is
amazed at the openness of the writers. To these playwrights, adultery
was not a matter of decrees ln law
courts but a subject for being witty,
chiefly at the expense of the aggrieved party. To Queen Victoria and her
friends it was a subject not to be
mentioned. The fact that the good
queen and her friends took this attitude was due, so we are told, to tne
reaction of public taste.
Hyperfrankness brought hypocrisy.
So we may have a reaction, too. It
may be possible that the current
vogue of calling a spade something
worse may paas and that we shall
have a return to a period of prudeiv.
Of course, ln the Women's magazine*
of today, and In the popular periodicals like "Collier's" and the "Saturday Evening Post", the serpent does
not hiss very audibly. In fact, he
takes a rest, and sleeps happUy in
a moonlit garden. But the works that
appear in these publications are considered by the intellectuals and by
the literary critics as being of hardly
any value. Nor, as a rule, are they.
Frankness, however, we do find tn
the masters of the age. In fact, we
nave oome to expect that a novel
which Is "aignlfldant" will contain
not leas than four words not uaed In
polite aoclety and at least one episode
of a dubious nature. But need we?
We do not have to go back to the
purity of Elsie Dlnsmore, undoubted
ly, but we oould get away from the
vlolence-ln-the-sewers vogue. Vlo.
lenoe in the sewers la all right, but
not for itself. The serpent Is all right,
and he can go on writhing, but he
need not writhe everywhere all the
time; even he must rest occasionally.

GONDOLIERS . . .
It Is always a source of wonder
when we aee friends and acquaintances transformed into characters
totally outside their real  nature.
Boys who have stalked around the
oampus with the "man-about-town"
attitude change to rollicking carefree gondoliers, while poised and
dignified coeds, given a stags setting, footlights, and stage finery
turn into gay contadines. As such
characters they abandoned all cares
and worries of their usual life, and
danoe, laugh, flirt and sing with
gaiety. It la as though their personalities undergo a metaphorphoala
when they don the colourful flashy
garb of the stage.
Such it seemeil to us aa we
watched the performance on Wednesday evening. Student night Is always more enjoyable than any other
performance. Perhaps it is because
we enjoy trying to recognise the
stage characters as our friends or
acquaintances.
And sometimes this is very difficult, ao effectively do they hide
themselves behind their mask of
make-up.

performances left little to be desired.
WELL TRAINED CHORUS
In half a dosen lively songs, the
chorus displayed good training and
excellent balance. Their movements
on the stage were well organised although the sise of the stage cramped the dancing to aome extent. On
the whole, their work waa so good
that some of the audienoe were
wishing there had been a few more
choruses and a love aong or two lass.
A large atudent orchestra provided the necessary accompaniment
for the songs of the operetta. In the
overture, although one or two weak
passages needed attention, it gained
well-earned applauae for a finished
rendition.
COLOURFUL  SETS
Oreat credit Is due to the technicians and stage crew for the beautiful sets, and for the way In whioh
the difficult staging of the gondolas
and the sailboat waa handled. The
colourful costumes also added greatly to the general gaiety of the scene.
The final test of the success of the
operetta was the way it was received by the audience. Of thla there
could be no doubt. Everyone seemed to enjoy the show immensely, and
It was evident from the great applause at the end how well the audience appreciated the year-long work
of   the   aoclety.

THE     UBYSSEY
Three
Debaters Discover Quails,
Bloodsuckers in Seattle
U.B.C.'s debating ambaaaadors,
Bob Bonner and Arthur Fouka, returned to the campua Wedneaday
from their three day vlalt to Seattle
where they dlacuaaed American Foreign Policy with Unlveralty of Waahlngton atudanta and atudted American co-eda by themaelves.
SEATTLE  "QUAILS"  WADDLE
"Our co-eda have no oorner on the
waddle," aald Bonner. "The Washington gala waddle Juat aa muoh aa,
If not more than thoae here."
The debater paid U.B.C. oo-edsthe
compliment of posaeaatng more beauty and charm on the average than
the Americana. The "Quails" (American slang for co-eda) do not wear
atooklnga but do wear low-heeled
shoes, thua helping their waddle.
"The U. of W. women are hard and
flinty looking In oomparlaon to oura,"
continued Bob. (Ounnlng for a bid
to the co-ed, Bob?)
The Waahlngton campus la about
the same area ae U.B.C.'e, but contains   buildings   to   accommodate
11,000 etudente.    The new Condon
Hall would house the total U.B.C.
population, aooording to the  visitors.    However, the campus ts situated In Seattle and their grounds
and location do not compare with
these on Point Grey.
Fraternitlea and  co-op houaea are
both   more    prominent    there   than
here.   Fraternity houaea built on the
model of the manalona on our North
Shore    Britiah    Properties    contain
from 40 to 60 atudent realdenta.    It
waa in one of theae that Bonner and
Fouka atayed  while In  Seattle.
The atudent co-operative movement ia big-time bualneaa in the
Statea. Over 300 atudenta live in coop houaea, whloh total over $40,000
capitalisation. Meala are prepared
at a central kitchen and are diatrlb-
uted to the houaea by a high-apeed
delivery ayatem. The atandard of
living in auch dwellings ia reported
to be high.
Waahlngton Journalism alao took
a beating from Bonner when he
compared It to Britiah Columbia's.
He thought that the standard of
the Ubyaaey waa much higher than
that of the Washington Dally, despite the fact that they give credits

Regarding the three symposiums
in whloh Bonner and Fouka took
part, they report the Seattle students aa having a very atrong antiwar and laolatlonlat polloy. Several
atudenta wore buttona with the In-
aoription: "The Yanka aren't coming."
Although most of tha Americana
think that In time they will have to
enter the war, they are determined
to atand aloof ae long aa poaaible,

Two   houra   later   the    Canadlana
again  debated  on  the  aame  aubject
c"  American  Foreign  Polloy  before
one of the regular Economtoa claaaea.    In  the  evening  they  preaented
their oaae for the third time in one
of the large co-op houaea.
The Americana accused Canada's censorship of news ae being
undemocratic, but when the debatera planned to broadcast their
speeches over a local radio station,
the management refused to put
them on the air. Reason i "The
statements were too hot to handle."

Bella Coola Key To South Sea Riddle
•  •  • •  •  •
Norse Student Solves Indians* Origin
By PIERRE BERTON
A blonde young Norwegian University student, who visited the
U.B.C. campus last November, has
solved, In Bella Coola, a mystery
whloh has pusaled geologlats through
the   centuries.
His name Is Thor Heyerdahl ; I
met him on the oampus last fall
when he oame here In searoh of
knowledge, and had the honour of
showing him our buildings and
grounds. He was Impressed, because he liked the student spirit
wblch he aaw around him.
Z waa impreased, too, becauae
there was something about Thor
Heyerdahl that differed from the
ordinary run of university students.
The modest young scientist was on a
quest, and the University of British
Columbia formed a link In the chain
of events that has led him to solve
the mystery of the strange stone
faces on the grassy plains of Easter
Island, as well as proving the origin
of the North Coast Indians.
SOUTH SEA SOJOURN
Thor saw Uttle future in five more
years of study at the University of
Oslo, so, together with his young
wife Llv, he set sail  for  tbe  South
iSeas where he lived for a year
among the natives, without seeing
a white faoe.
From the Marquises Islands to ths
Norwegian snows and back again to
the sunlight of the U.B.C. campus ls
a long trek. Thor Heyerdahl did tt
within a year. In the Interim, little
Thor arrived.
Today Thor, Llv and little Thor
are In Bella Coola. Their quest hse
ended. Thor maintains that he has
solved the riddle of Easter Island's
mystic stone faoes as well as having
proved that the Indians on B.C.'s
North Coast are the descendants of
the Southern Polynesians.
WILL PUBLISH BOOK
Amid the silent snows of the Bella
Coola mountains, so like his native
Norway, the Viking student Is gathering his mass of Information together in book form. Within two or
three months, he announces that hla
complete findings will appear. University geologists should look forward  to  the   book's  publication.
Those of us who met him when he
visited the campus laat term are
looking forward to his return thia
aprlng. He ia a man well worth
knowing.
Did you ever stop to think that
the Ap. Sc. Faoulty, besides being
the only aggregation of students on
the campua, is the only really collegiate organisation we have?
They have, as everybody should
know by now, a yell, It is a real
yell. It Is usually spontaneous, always loud, and it is always delivered with that sincerity that marka
every true work of art. In spite of
this, I have never known any Arts-
men (who are supposed to appreciate) to appreciate the Soience yell
as it ought to be appreciated.
There  ought  to  be  more  of these
appreciation    courses.     You     know,
like the other one.
SCIENTIFIC ANALYSIS
Anahoo, in an attempt to alleviate
this appalling condition on the campus, I am going to analyse the Science Yell, and explain the meaning
of each phrase, so that even Unwashed (are you there, Jessup?) living
ln the slums between the caf. and
the Aggie Building, will understand
it.

A  DEAN'S  SOLILOQUY
To bounce or not to bounce, that
Is the question.
Whether 'tls nobler In our hallowed halls to suffer
The presence of this dope another
term
Or  to   prick   him  down  for  lost,
and let him
Save his hundred bucks.
And now I'll do't; and so he goes
to work at last
And so I am revenged; for many
times  he  snored
All through my lecture.
And  many  times   he   came   and
crooked
The  pregnant  hinges  of the knee.
(Yes,  thrift  should   follow  fawning, but he was wont
To lay lt on too thick.    Olve me
that  man
Who  knows  how thick  to  lay  It
on, and I will wear him
In   my   heart's   core,   ay,    in    my
heart of hearts.)
Something   too   much   of   this.    I
like him not.
He   rolls   about,   his   doublet    all
unbraced,
No tie about his neok, his stockings fouled,
And down-gyved to his ankle,
A scabrous butt a-drooping from
his  lips.
He   grunts   when    I    incline    my
head hia way and smile
In passing on the Quad.
Besides, his average mark is ten.
There  is a tide  ln  the affairs of
men, and  here's  where
This  man's   tide,   when   taken   at
the  flood
Will wash him out of here.

'Bird Blademen Bounce
Against Awful  Airmen
To-night At  Forum
Bring on the Flyers I That was the abrupt but unanimous
demand of the atudent puckchasers after their final Forum work-
otit Wednesday night.
You might get the impression that the College hockey squad
is a bit on the confident side for a gang that are taking on a
Senior League team. Helping to emphasize this is the amazing
record of the Blue and Gold Sextette, namely no wins nnd no
draws, (p.s. no losses) (p.p.s. no games).
But    the   Thunderbird    BlademenS)
have  really  rounded  Into  a smooth -
skating outfit that is ready to go "all
out" tonight In a determined effort
to bring down the Airmen.
CONFIDENCE
In a secret interview with Frank
Frederlckson, the Coach seemed exceedingly confident about one point
. . . Frank figured that his team is
going to win . . . but he neglected to
mention which team he meant. The
ex-N.H.L. star, by the way, Is handling both squads tonight.
With the Idea of assuring a rugged, hard skating game, the flrst
two periods will be shortened to fifteen minutes each.
Carnival Night will provide the
fans with Just about every kind of
loe entertainment Imaginable. The
Connaught Skating Club will feature a dosen flrat class figure skaters,  and these gorgeous gals will
make  the first  Intermission  seem
mighty short.
Between    the    last    two    periods,
Mary   Taylor,   talented   daughter   of
the great "Cyc" Taylor, will give a
solo figure skating exhibition.
Then comes Victoria's gift to
goonery, one Ralph Alcock who will
at least give the after game skaters
enough confidence; they will realize
there is somebody who looks worse.
The Air Force is calling for volunteers to attend the game tonight,
and those failing to volunteer will
be escorted along as 'prisoners.' So
it's going to take a lot of shouting
to overwhelm the wingmen and
their band. Pepster Palmer claims
his new triple volume megaphone
will do the trick, provided that no
less than 100% of the student body
Is on hand.
STARRY LINE-UP
An all-star lineup, one of the
strongest ever to wear the Blue and
Oold of U.B.C, will go skating for
the Airmen tonight with many new
recruits from the Interior down to
strengthen the squad.
In   goal   again,   will   be   bashful
Ed.   Benson,   the   amorous   stone-
waller    from    Klmberly,    but    the
Flyers will first have to get by the
defensemen:     Jack    Moxon,    Jim
Harmer, Don Prlckett, -Tack Stevenson, and Andy Provensano. Not
all of them will be on the Ice at
once,   but  the   two   that   are   will
seem like five.
Two  forward  lines  and   additional
recruits   -will   carry   the  Varsity   of-
fenalve.   Line   No.   1   will   consist   of
Ted Stevenson, Norm Oill, and Austin Frith. The second string will be
represented  by Bonutto,  Home,  and
Kapak.
. Many more of the icemen will be
in strip, although no definite third
line  has  been   formed.

DEAR  SPORT PUBLIC:
You probably don't realise it but
the University has a Soccer team.
You don't realise it, and we don't
want to. The soccer team has a
Press Representative. What's his
name? We don't know. We don't
know very much about soccer
cither.
And, thus, not knowing much
about soccer, except that "round
ball" looks very good in a head when
you've used "soccermen" eight times
running, we have decided not to
write a soccer story.
FOOl
We don't think very many care
about soccer, anyway, because we
had them tieing Kerrisdale 1-1 in a
head last Tuesday and 2-2 in the
story. Only three people pointed out
this glaring error: two roundballers
and  one  editor-in-chief.
Things were very rosy up until
our regular correspondent got the
Rhodes Scholarship and decided to
relinquish his position. He used to
write stories as consistently as thoae
C.S.A. people write lettera to the
editor. But he quit, and they, the
soccer   team,  appointed  a  new  man.
He handed in one atory which you
saw on Tuesday. He did not appear
on thla press day. Soccer does not
appear  on   this  sport  page—today.
We are considering suspending the
Soccer Team until such time as they
see fit to hand in a satisfactory report, and if they try to circulate a
petition, we'll get another Interview
from Dean Krug.

P.S.—All   the   news   we   know   about
the  game  ls  contained  In   the   head.
Senior Bees Crowned Champs
For First Time at U.B.C.;
Take Bauble with 44-34 Win
By DUNG MacTAVISH
Today the Varsity Senior Bees can rightly gloat. They are
tho only basketball tonm on the campus to bring honours to this
lyceiun this year nnd the flrst Varsity team to win a Senior B
championship.
The Bees defeated Jimmy Railton's Pro-Recs by a 44-34 count
at the King Edward Gym in the fifth of a best of five series for the
Lower Mainland championship on Wednesday night.
Flouting one of the most beautiful trophies that has ever been on the
campus, the Varsity team ls on its way, now, for a B.O. championship.
The students will travel to Squamish on Monday for a sudden death
tussle with the Squamish crew.
Varsity  has never come close to winning  a  bee championship before.
In the first year '35-'36, Forst took the honours. Then came Spencer's for
a pair of years, then Pals, and now Varsity.
STARTED EARLY
With the first peep of the ref's whistle, Varsity anxiously started by
running through the Pro-Recs, piling up an 18-4 advantage at the quarter,
with Rees and Wyard co-operating for most of the tallies.
In the next canto, Barton and Elefthery staved the Pro-Rec drive by
matching baskets with Duffy and Stout. But the city team advanced ln spite
of them, and bolstered the count to 25-16 by the half.
The Collegians came back in the third period with the same attack as
the first period but only managed to outscore the Pro-Recs by a point. Rees
and Barton sank their looping one-handers from every angle.
The Pro-Recs staged a rally at the beginning of the last quarter and
netted a pair of tallies in the flrst two minutes, bringing the score to 38-30.
But Rees and Barton repelled this with more smooth shooting.
Demetrle Elefthery held the ex-Senior A player, Trev Harvey, to a
measly 4 points, paving the way for the high scoring Btudent trio of
Rees, Barton and Wyard.
Al Young and Andy Roddan didn't rate among the scorers but their
defensive game was a telling blow to Pro-Recs McLean and Stout,
especially in the flrst stanaa.
After the game, Stew McMorran, amiable coach of the team, was more
excited  than  Scarlett  O'Hara's  flrst  husband  when  he  was  presented the
trophy by league officials.  McMorran was asked to make a speech but he
couldn't close his  mouth  to start.
FIGHTIN'  FOOLS
The students had their backs to the wall in these last two games. They
dropped the first one 43-38 but came back in the second swamping the
Pro-Recs  53-28.
It seemed all over for Varsity when they dropped the third telling
game 48-38. But the college kids din't quit that easily and came back in
the last two with a pair of handsome wins. They stiffened Railton's team
with a 38-34 count on Monday and flattened them on Wednesday.
The number "38" seemed to have an adverse effect on the students as
they dropped two games by that count.   But they hurdled this jinx in the
fourth  game  by  winning  with  that same haunting  number  against them.
PRO-RECS: Purves 2, McLean », Harvey 4, Stout 7, Duffy 11, Woods,
McKenzie 1, Hodglns. Total 34.
VARSITY: Izen, Barton 12, Rees 17, Roddan 1, Elefthery 4, Young
2, Wyard 8, Menzles. Total 44.
Rugby Game
With 'Lomas
A Natural
By DOUO. WATT
The Varsity Rugger team
comes up against its really
"crooshul" match tomorrow
when it meets its first top spot
opposition in the form of the
league-leading Meralomas at the
Stadium at three o'clock. The
Kitsies are so far undefeated in
their quest for the Lower Mainland Cup, and will be out in full
force to protect this un'marred
status.
The Campus lads have been
placed under the tutorship of Tom
Stewart, former mentor of the
Vancouver Rep a decade or so
ago, and are reported to be In top
ahape for the Important tussle.
Everything depends on thla one
contest. If Varsity loses, they may
as well hang up their cleats, for
they will have virtually no hope of
acquiring the Miller Cup. If, on
the other hand, the Campusmen
do come through with a viotory,
they will be In a first place tie
with the Kltalemen, which will
necessitate a apecial playoff game
for the coveted silverware.
OPINION DIVIDED
Opinion ls divided pretty evenly
between the supporters of the two
teams as to which one Is favoured
to take tomorrow's tilt. Most of the
Vancouver fans still are rather skeptic regarding the condition of the
Varsity men, and are predicting another Meraloma win.
However, the Stewart stalwarts
are tn top shape, and will easily be
able to go the route in the contest.
Whichever way the verdict comes
out, It will be a close and interesting
game to watch.
Down at the Brockton Oval, the
Ubeeceers will tackle the Marpole
group at 2 o'clock, and will be out
to add a victory to their thus far
rather meagre string. Line up for
the   game   will   be:
Scrum: Bingham, McLaughlin,
Orr, Straight, Moore, Wilson,
Johnston, Lane; scrum-half: Nlsh-
lo; five-eighths: Ross; three-quarters: Richards, Lang, Hicks, Nell;
fullback: Price,
FORGOTTEN FROSH
The almost forgotten and coach-
less Frosh, riding on the crest of
several straight losses, will take on
the "Naval Reserve on the Lower
Oval at the same time as the Ubeeceers play. Having improved slowly
but surely during the laat few weeks,
the Greenhorns are hoping for their
flrst win against the Boatboys, and
it should be touch and go as to
whether they do make the grade.
Track Tcam Trains
For Academy Meet
With their shut-mouth theories
toward the press, neither Edmond
Cox, track manager, nor Director Van
Vllet will commit themselves on
who will travel to the Hill Academy
meet  next  month.
The only known events so far are
the two mile event and the relay
race.
From these humble walla It la
quite certain that Wilf Pendray.
Al Oardlner, Ted Scott and Lionel
Fournler will be four of the six
travellers.
DE BECK OUT
Ward De Beck haa definitely given
up track work after his graduation
to the pulpit. He will be a great loss
to the Varsity team.
Tho University of Washington will
come to the campus about March 22
for a tournament with the local
team. —Mac  T.

THE  BEST MILK  CHOCOLATE  MADE
Co*Ed Sports
—By Oerry Armstrong
Last Monday saw the debut among
sporting circles of a stranger to the
campus—tennikoit. For those unfamiliar with the game, it is played
on a badminton court by tennis
rules. A rubber ring ls thrown from
side to side and must be caught with
one hand and Immediately thrown
back. Sounds simple, doesn't it, but
just try It! Some found the knack
but others followed the illusive ring
all  over the  court.
This week Aggies, Nurses and
Education are scheduled for ping
pong and  tennikoit.
In a practice game with the High
School A Rep team our U.B.C.
hockeyists, sadly lacking practice,
found themselves not quite able to
keep pace with picked high school
girls.
TCH! TCH!
The score was only 2-0 but goalie
Helen Matheson made many a beautiful save. Managing to be almost
everywhere at once, Pauline Scott
played a fine game as centre-half.
A heart-breaker was the near goal
by Myrne Nevlson in the second
half.
NO ARGUMENT
Whether or not U.B.C. Co-Eds
"waddle" Is a question that
has aroused considerable controversy with atrong aupport
on  both  sides.
But there's NO argument
about the superior qualities of
Home Oas, the 10O% B.C. product which leads the field In
pep,  power  and  dependability.
