Cast Adds Final
/	
Touches to Annual
Spring Production
By LORNA McDIARMID
•   STAGED in an eighteenth century atmosphere of powdered wigs and hoop-skfrts, Sheridan's "The Rivals" opens
before a student audience next Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. in
the Auditorium.
Mr. Sam Payne, the cast of
twelve are this week concentrating
on final dress rehearsals to
assure the success of the Players'
Club twenty-seventh annual spring
production.
Art Hill, who starred in last
year's "Candida," again takes a
prominent part, cast in the role
of Captain Absolute.
Sharing the romantic leads with
Hill are three of this year's new
members. Doreen Dougan, who is
remembered as the plate-throwing
bride in the Christmas plays,
portrays Sheridan's charming
Lydia. Shirley Kerr, featured as i
charwoman in the club's earlier
presentation, is a gentle blonde,
Julia, in the forthcoming production, and Foster Isherwood
plays "Faulkland."
Adding to the colour and wit
of this satirical comedy are Lister
Sinclair playing Sir Anthony
Absolute, and Eleanor Atkins as
the "old weather-beaten she-
dragon," Mrs. Malaprop.
Other members of the cast include Mary Buckerfield as the
maid Lucy; Norman Campbell,
famed drunk of the Jabez skit, ar>
Fag. John Seyer as Sir Lucius
O'Trigger; Tom Mayne as David;
Peter McGeer as Thomas; and
Ronald Heal as the country bum-
kin, Bob Acres.
Following student night Wednesday, three performances open to*
tho public will commence at 8:30
p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Tickets for these are on sale
at the box-office of Kelly's on
Seymour St., or may be obtained
from  members of the club.
Tickets available to students on
presentation of their students' pass
will be Issued from the Quad.
Box Office early next week. The
Claim ARP Plans
Are Inadequate
By. VIRGINIA HAMMITT
•   LAST WEEK the Ubyssey conducted a survey on the
campus to find out if the students felt that the University
authorities had taken sufficient precautions to insure the
safety of the faculty and students in case of an air raid.
When asked her opinion on the subject, freshette Mary
Frances Turmbull said that she felt the students should be
better informed on what to do in case of an air-raid.
Echoing her sentiments, Players-       —mmmm—^—m^~—mm—m—~^
Clubber   Shirley   MacDonald   remarked that having the Category
E men take A.R.P. training was an
excellent    idea,    but    that   there
should be more practices. She suggested that circulars should be sent
around to all students informing
them of what to do in case of an
air-raid.
Bill Bender, Delta Upsilon, enlarged on this by stating that in
addition to the lack of training
and information on the campus,
there are virtually no armaments
to protect this exposed area, that
the air-raid siren cannot be heard
in the caf. and that there should
be soire system of shelters, other
than mere trees, for tho protection
of the students in case of an actual
alarm.
BAD THING
Along thc same vein, Marg Cunningham of Delta Gamma said that
standing under trees Is the worst
thing you could do—although why
should we have better protection
than the rest of Vancouver?
Freshman Johnny Nicol said,
"You can quote me as saying that
I feel the authorities have definitely not taken sufficient steps to insure the safety of the faculty and
students in case of an air-raid.
Underground shelters should be
provided so that in case of an
aerial high-explosive bombardment
all cause for panic would be eliminated and there would be a lower
percentage of casualties among
faculty and students."
Senior Bill Gardiner said, "Mixed
running into the woods is leading
to immorality on the campus," and
Ivan Brown added, "The immorality would bo worse in an air-raid
shelter.

Depicting the attractive style of
the late Regency period, the set
for the production has been designed by Paul Matthews, A stage

Camp May
Be Held
At Vernon
• RUMOURS that this
year's C.O.T.C. camp will
be held at Vernon rather
than at Nanaimo seem well
founded according to Orderly Room officials.
Those who were at the Nanaimo
camp la.sl year will doubtless welcome the change to Vernon where
training facilities are better and
the climate perhaps a little drier.
The C. O. T. C. will probably
supply its own transport at camp
this year. Training of drivers has
been going on since January to
qualify them for their Army
third class drivers certificate.

• FOR THE BENEFIT of
Freshmen French Classes
the Film Society will show
an 80 minute picture made
from excerpts of the "Barber of Seville" and the "Marriage of Figaro" in the Auditorium on Wednesday afternoon, March 25.
Mile E. de Miribel, former personal secretary of General de
Gaulle and now in charge of the
Free French Information Ofice,
will address the student body on
the activities of de Gaulle in
Syria, Africa, and the Far East.
Dr. David Evans, head of the
French Department, feels it is the
patriotic duty of all students taking French to skip classes In
order to attend the film showing.
Players in the film, which is
available in the Extension Department of thc University, will be
artists from the Opera Comiquc.
INDIANS COMING
The final Film Society showing
will be on April 8, when "Under

Raymond Masscy, and Conrad
Veidt, will be presented.
The final chapter of that exciting serial, "The Indias Are Coming" will be shown sometime next
week.
P.A. Trio Sing
Irish Telegram
O SOME of the most unique
sounds ever to come over the
campus P.A. system startled Caf
loungers out of their spring lethargy last Tuesday morning.
The cause of it all was the "singing" of "When Irish Eyes Are
Smiling" by Gordon Macfarlane,
Jack Moxon and Harry Home as
a St. Patrick's Day singing telegram from Ted McBride to the
students.

• REPORTS of the year's activities by Student Council
executives and the question of payment of fees for the
A.M.S. President, Treasurer and Editor-in-Chief feature the
business agenda of the annual Alma Mater Meeting scheduled for 11:45 a.m. Wednesday, March 25, in the Auditorium.
11:30 lectures have been cancelled to enable all students to
attend.
Retiring president Edward W.
McBride will hand the robes of
office over to Rod Morris, who
will be officially installed with his
new Council as head of the A.M.S.
for 1942-43.
BROCK FOOD
Besides the matter of fees (see
editorial, page 2) the question of
Brock Dining Room food, under
investigation by a committee appointed by Council, may be
brought before the student body
as a whole, if negotiations at present underway do not come to a
successful conclusion.
"It is urgent that every student
attend this final meeting of the
year," stated President McBride
yesterday, "as matters having such
important bearing on the A.M.S.
should not be decided by only a
fraction of the student body."

Engineers Start Move To Cut $15.00 Charge
•   PROTESTING against the high graduation fee of fifteen dollars, members of the Graduating Class yesterday presented a letter signed by over 200 seniors to the Bursar requesting that the graduation fee be reduced "to the minimum possible amount."
Originating in the Engineers faculty, the movement for lowering
the fees quickly spread to Agriculture and Arts. Opinion was
unanimous that fifteen dollars was
too much to spend for the graduation exercises, especially in wartime.
Compared with other universities
across Canada, U.B.C. charges
more than average for graduation.
At Toronto, Alberta and Western
Ontario tho graduation fee for a
bachelor's degree is ton dollars,
while at Saskatchewan it is only
three  dollars.   McGill  charges ten
dollars only if the degree is received "in absentia."
LETTER TEXT
Following is the text of the letter
submitted to the Bursar.
Dear Sir:
We, the undersigned members
of the graduating class of 1942,
feel that the afteen ($15) dollars
assessed for graduation fees is excessive. In view of the fact that
Canada is at war, such an expenditure for unnecessary frills appears
to be unjustified.
We realize that a small portion
of   this  sum  is  required  for ex
penses of graduation, but the greater part is expended on artlolsj
which we are willing to dtspeoft
with at this time.
The expense is also a hardship
on students who have already
spent so much on University education that their finances are at
present very low,
Wo therefore respectfully request that your office attempt to
reduce the graduation fee to the
minimum  possible  amount.
(Signed)

A C.U.P. FEATURE
By ALAN HARVEY
O OTTAWA, March 8-(C.U.P.)
Increased assistance from tho
Federal Treasury appears in prospect for Canadian university students during the 1942-43 scholastic
term.
Government officials are putting
their heads together, pondering
the best method of helping college
men pursue their studies under
the strain of additional handicaps
and responsibilities imposed by
the  war.
"Joe College isn't the 'Rah Rah'
character of pre-war days any
more and the Government appreciates fact," on Government
spokesman said. "Now he has •
real bulls-eye to shoot at and
we're going to do our best to
make sure he hits it"
Just what form any increased
assistance will take hat not been
made public but a shrewd guess is
the helping hand will take tilt
form of larger financial grants to
deserving students of good academic standing who will have outstanding talents to offer after
graduation.
HELP ENGINEERS
Chief beneficiaries of such a
program, it is understood, will be
students in science, engineering
and   medicine.
It is understood the new program will follow the general lines
of the system now operating under
the old youth training program.
Since 1939, under this scheme, the
Labor Department has been giving
assistance to university students—
u sum the province has to match
or there is no deal.
Up to last year, only four western provinces, Quebec and Prince
Edward Island had taken advantage of the offer. All students of
good standing were eligible under
this system and the assistance
came as a straight gift with no
strings attached.
Last year the Department wrote
to the province and offered a substantial Increase In assistance,
ranging up to a maximum of |300
a year for science, engineering and
medical students. The only proviso was that the student had to
sign  an   undertaking  to  assist in

Marshall Pursues Costly
Art Of Glass Blowing
By JEAN BEVERIDGE
•   DID YOU KNOW that there are amateur glass blowers
on the campus?
Dr. M. J. Marshall, secluded in a glass cluttered office,
greeted this reporter with an amiable smile and proceeded
to give all the details about this interesting sidelight of the
science department.
Dr. Marshall modestly denied ^—~m——-m—mmmmmmm—m
any claim to being in the upper
circles of glass blowers; he said
that it was more or less of ,i
hobby to occupy his spare moments. .
EXPENSIVE
Quartz glass which is rather expensive ($4.00 for eight inches of
one quarter inch tubing) is used
for blowing. Dr. Marshall brought
out tube after tube of fused
quartz varying in size from one
quarter to about 6 inches in width.
This type of glass which comes
from Eastern Canada is very hard
and is much more dlficult to work
with than the type of glass which
is used in ordinary chemistry ex-
]x>rinents, It will not melt until it
reaches  about 1500  degrees  centi
grade and has very great tensile
strength.
Dr. Marshall demonstrated this
by heating some glass to red heat
and then dowsing It under cold
water where it only sizzled In
cooling. Pyrex and quartz have
such a diference in melting temperatures that special joining seals
are used on the apparatus for
dealing with them.
Dr. Marshall encourages Ms
students to work with glass but
costliness of quartz prevents the
boys of Chem. 4 from using a great
deal of it. However, in spite of
this dificulty there are one or two
boys who are quite proficient in
the art. Page Two
From The Editor's Pen
The Payment of Fees
At the insistence of the newly-elected
A.M.S. President and Treasurer, the motion
for the payment of fees of the President,
Treasurer and Editor-in-Chief, passed at the
semi-annual A.M.S. meeting last fall, will
come up for discusion at Wednesday's annual meeting. Students should study carefully the implications of this motion so they
may come to the meeting prepared to express their decision.
Two sides of the question present themselves, and it is up to you to decide which
outweighs the other. When the motion was
first put forward, it was on the understanding that it be ratified annually, as no one
student body had the right to obligate future
student bodies to the extent of between $500
and $600. Therefore, it was decided the motion should come up annually at the fall'
meeting of the A.M.S. so students could decide then whether or not they would pay
their officers' fees. They would be spending
their own money, not that of future students,
and would be in a better position to know if
they could afford it as registration figures
would be available.
On the other hand, and this is one of
the main points on which the motion was
passed last fall, fees are paid so that the
elected officers may spend more time preparing for their tasks during the summer.
If they are Arts students, they can take
summer school courses and so lighten the
burden for the winter session, and if En
gineers, come back to labs a month early
and still not suffer for the want of the extra
month's wages. Morris and Backman rightly contend that if the motion is not brought
up until fall, they will not know if they can
afford to come back early or not.
Apart from the merits or demerits of
ratifying the motion now, it is extremely
interesting to note the about-face of one,
Mr. Backman, with regard to this question.
When it was under discussion at the A.M.S,
meeting last fall, Mr. Backman led a one-
man attack in his customary forceful and
eloquent oratory AGAINST the payment of
fees. At that time he was most disdainful
of student officers who would stoop to accepting their fees, claiming the honor of
serving the student body was sufficient reward. He warned the adoption of the plan
would lead to commercialism in campus
politics and a deterioration in college spirit.
Although these charges have been shown
up to have not the slightest foundation, the
incident just goes to prove Mr. Backman's
lack of foresight and apparent insincerity.
If he felt the way he said he did at that
time, why should he be so anxious to get
his fees paid now?
Nevertheless, it is up to the students to
decide whether they have the right to vote
on the motion now or in the fall. What decision they will make on Wednesday will
probably become the tradition for years to
follow.

LIFE IN ARMY CAMP
(Part the Fourth)
Breakfast; Or They Died With Their
Boots On
What has gone before: The men of the
C.O.T.C. rose to take their exercise.
Their exercise took the men of the
C.O.T.C. Read on:
After a half-hour of P.T., most of us
were afraid to approach our muscles without a whip and achair. One little chap in
our tent was sitting in a corner by himself,
his head in his hands, rocking slowly backwards and forwards, staring at his feet scattered about in front of him, and moaning:
"It shouldn't happen to a dog. It shouldn't happen to a dog."
I grabbed my shaving kit and staggered
down to where our men were trying to shave
with cold water. The place was easy to find
—the trail of blood was still fresh.
With palliass straw sticking out of their
hair, their eyes shot with cerise, and a weak
lather hanging around their lips, they looked like refugees from commencement day
at that other institution. We were jammed
in so tightly at the water trough that I shaved three other fellows before I realized I
was looking in the wrong mirror, whereas
I myself was kept busy plucking alien toothbrushes out of my own teeth. It was the
first time I ever had Ipana, Pepsodent, and
Dr. Lyon's Tooth Powder all in my mouth
at the same time.
No Plug
We were fighting to control a man. who
had brought a Schick electric razor and no
plug, when the bugle sounded for what we
later learned was breakfast.
Not that the food was poor, mind you.
Plenty of the fellows who didn't bring stomach pumps are still alive, and living right
here in Vancouver. You should hear them
talk about the food, pounding their fists on
the armrests of their wheel-chairs. The
principal complaint seemed to be that there
wasn't enough of it. On the tenth day a
man burped, and thirty-five cadets ran over
to get his autograph.
Anyhow, when the bugle bleated, I talked my legs up to the tent, picked up my
upper, lower, and tin plates, and arrived
back just in time to be at the end of the
line. It was a long line, so that my gast,ric
juices were wearing white-caps when I finally stepped up, my plates in my hand.
"Sorry, brother," said the man, making
a gesture, "there ain't nothing left."
Bringing my eyes into focus, I gazed at
him dumbly. Then, gritting my gums, I
spoke evenly.
"I don't mind, you know, for myself," I
said, "but what am I going to tell my
stomach?"
"Better try the next cook-house," he
advised. v
Eight Ball
Once again I was just in time to be cued
behind the eight-ball, at the end of the line.
Ultimately, however, I reached an individual
who was pouring a dark, brown viscous liquid into cups. I was handed a cup which
was somewhat lardy wUh grease.
"I think I've seen this film before," I
protested, trying to hand it back, without
success.
The liquid-man started to pour some of
the goo into my cup.
"No coffee, thanks," I smiled. "Just give
me a glass of pineapple juice."
"This isn't coffee, it's mush!" he barked,
filling my cup.
"You haven't got any Wheaties, I suppose?" I asked coyly.
Something in his face made me move
along to another cherub who was pouring a
dark, brown, viscous liquid into cups.
"I've already got some mush, thanks."
I said.
"This isn't mush, it's coffee," he replied,
shoving a cup into my other hand.
"No, thanks," I said. "Just a glass of
pineapple juice, please."
He looked at me, bird-like, for a moment, then said, somewhat too obligingly.
"Sure, sure. Hey, Joe, bring a glass of
pineapple juice for tall, dark and emaciated
here!"
I was soon holding another cup containing a dark, brown, viscous liquid.
"Are you positive this is pineapple
juice?" I asked suspiciously.
"Of course!" he laughed, adding in a
stage whisper: "Harlem pineapples!"
Things on Plates
A third man was putting things on
plates. He put one of the things on my plate.
"If it isn't revealing any military secrets," I said, "what's that?"
"That's an egg."
"Isn't that rather hard on the humming
birds?" I snarled.
"It's a hen's egg," he snarled back.
I nudged the tiny ellipse with my finger.
"Are (you sure she wasn't rying to get
the range?" I asked sourly. "Maybe if she
backed up and took a run at it . . . ."
"That's a government issue egg and shut
up!" roared the man.
"Then the chickens must be sitting down
on the job!" I bellowed back,
"How the hell else can they lay an egg?"
he countered in a high screech.
Officer of the Day
Unfortunately, the officer of the day
was attracted by the uproar.
"What's the trouble here, men?"
"This guy wants to bring in an artillery
unit to shell his egg for him!" lied the cookhouse menace exultingly.
"Where is your mess?" asked the officer.
"I prefer not to discuss my lady friends
or their whereabouts," I said stiffly, knowing the Army Act ruling on this point.
"What company are you in?" the officer demanded threateningly.
"Bad!" I cried, yielding to an impulse.
That's how I came to write my famous
treatise, THE POTATO, AND HOW TO
PEEL IT.

ARCHIE PATON
The
Gatepost
BY LIONEL SALT
• WE NEED a lot of things
out here at U.B.C.
There's the $350,000 Preventive Medicine building
we almost got in 1939—until
war broke out. And then
we need a department of
Home Economics. We lose
more darn students to Eastern and American Colleges.
We're wasting good British Columbia talent.
But there is something else we
need out here,' too. Something cultural, in a way, a university should
be cultural.
We need a Chair of Music.
GROWING INTEREST
Never was there such a need for
a faculty of music as there is today. Vancouver, the whole province has become music-conscious.
The Vancouver Symphony is getting a wide reputation. We've produced our share of celebrities.
But there ls no adequate training
centre which could foster the love
and appreciation of music.
That the students of the University themselves are developing an
appreciation for good music is to
be found in the Increased schedule
of visiting artists. Arthur Benjamin, William Primrose and Kenneth Spencer to mention some.
There are the lectures of Dr. Ida
Halpern which have proved so popular, and the record hours sponsored by the Music Appreciation
Society.
Last year, when Arthur Benjamin was brought out for a noon-
hour lecture, the Auditorium was
packed. Students were unanimous
in their approval, attested to the
enjoyment they got.
Vancouver has been graced by
the presence of many music greats.
J o h n BaiburoUi, Sir Thomas
Boa-ham, Sir Ernest MacMillan,
internationally-renowned conductors have been high in their praises
of Vancouver's musiuil spirit and
talent.
For the past five or six years
there has been a steady influx into
British Columbia of musicians, who"
having heard of the musical spirit
on the Coast, have decided to come
and see for themselves.
MUSIC AT UNIVERSITY
As far as the University itself
is concerned, six units of credit
are granted to students gaining
their A.T.C.M. diploma. Music
has, then, been officially recognized.
Universities and colleges throughout the States, and in Europe are
proud of their music faculties. In
most cities, the university is the
fountalnhead of culture, with music heading the list.
Hundreds of students study
music in their spare time. There
la no reason, other than financial
of course, why the University
should not provide them adequate
means for campus study, in accredited courses.
At the present time, there is
little possibility of considering expansion of the curriculum to include such a development. But
what should be started now is a
concerted campaign to educate the
government and people of the province to the need.
We have members of the provincial legislature asking for a department of Home Economics out
here. Our chancellor, himself a
doctor, has been advocating for
years the need for a Medical
School.
Wo need, now, some protagonists to fight for the setting up of
a Chair of Music. Vancouver is
filled with musicians capable of
staffing such a department. Arthur Benjamin has indicated, at
times, "that he would be glad to
assist in such a venture.
The publicity which the University would gain would prove to be
a tremendous stimulus to education in British Columbia.
The resultant publicity would
quite conceivably result in making
other advancements and expansions more easily achieved.
Music, after all is as much Art
as is literature. There is no reason
for our snubbing it.

Campus
Explorer
• TO EDUCATE the Artsman,
who thinks u fireman jumps
out when one of those little red
boxes marked "Fii>e" is smashed,
your campus explorer this week
traced the wires of a fire alarm
box back to their source to see
just what happens when an alarm
is turned in.
Back near the faculty parking
lot, the wires suddently did a
double lateral and disappeared
Into a stucco-covered building
which looked suspiciously like a
typical fire hall with a tower,
doors and runways, and, this gave
it away, a little red, quadrangle-
shaped lamp with the words "Fire-
Hall" on it.
We peered In the windows and
were shocked to sec a small red
tank with two big wheels and a
little rubber hose, sitting In a
corner. Could this be our fire
protection or did we cross our
wires? Relax, Artsmen, we crossed our wires. Alongside in the
next garage was the object of our
visit.
PACKARD
Sitting there, shining in all her.
glory of brass, was a red Packard
fire engine. The fireman who was
on duty at the time, Mr. Mac-
Pherson, was only too glad to show
us around. The 12-cylindere J
Packard, who keeps her age a
secret, is capable of doing 80 miles
per hour, but has never yet been
pushed up to that speed, belnfc
kept down to a modest 80 miles
per hour on het forays into tho
outside world, which to her is all
the university area, including tho
Indian reserve. Down at Acadia
and Chancellor, however, there Is
an auxiliary engine which helps
out in emergencies.
The alarm system used is not a3
complicated as cxpccled. When
thc fdas" is smashed, a liit'.e gadget in the hall punches clots to
form a number. For example, f
three dots, .-p.ee. then two dots
wciy punched th:t; would form the
number 32 and the fireboys would
l:now 111.", t thc ndm'nistratkHi
building was 0:1 fire. At thc snnvj
time, hclb ring and firemen pop
down from upstairs. A little knob
on the end of a rope is pulled and
the doors fly open and the next
instant the Packard, hitting on a.1
12, flies out. The time taken by
the above action is reputed to be
three-quarters of a minute..
ONE ALARM A WEEK
On the average, there is about
one alarm a week on the campus,
but no false alarms. Only troublo
from the undergraduates is the
occasional hose which they turn
on now and then and forget to
turn off.
The wagon is very well-equipped. It has 1,000 feet of hose, an
inhalator, and other machinery
necessary for fire fighting. There
are not many big fires at U.B.C.
but the wagon is often called out
to give first aid to people on the
beaches and carbon monoxide
cases.
Another interesting fact uncovered is that a few of U.B.C.'s professors are auxiliary firemen and
attend regular classes in connection with the work. The hall Is
also headquarters for the patrolmen who roam the campus nights
and for A.R.P, workers.
Nothing helps a girls popularity
like being easy on the eye.

B. C. PARTICIPATES
So far only Quebec and Briish
Columbia have participated in the
revised set-up but even at that
more than 1300 students repres-
senting a Dominion-Provincial investment of $5,000 provided by the
plan in 1941-42.
Recently representatives ot the
Labor Department, the Defense
Department and medical deans
from several universities conferred
on problems facing university
students. Much of what transpired
at that conference still remains a
secret but the correspondent is
giving "very active consideration"
to a plan for increased assistance
to students — and not only medical students.
"We're rushing this thing along
as fast as we can," one highly-
placed defence department spokesman said, "and we expect to have
something concrete to announce
before very long,"
FINDING JOBS
Another phase of university activity — placement of students
after graduation and during the
summer holidays — Is under keen
study by the wartime bureau of
technical personnel, a labor department branch created more
than a year ago to survey the supply of skilled technicians and
scientists in  Canada.
L. E. Westman, an assistant
director of the bureau, has just
completed a tour of colleges
in British Columbia and will report his findings shortly on summer employment of students and
their enlistment in the armed
forces  and  industry.
O ELECTIONS of the Law Society were held at Tuesday
noon. Bill Street, was elected
President for the next year. Dave

Laud Conscription
•   ON WEDNESDAY students got the benefit of the experience of four professors on that important subject, the
conscription plebiscite. A crowded Applied Science 100 listened intently as each of the speakers asked for a "yes" vote.
"We have been losing the war
so far," declared Lieut-Col. O. M.
Shrum. "We have lost because
we could not get enough men at
the right place at the right time.
Conscription will give us the men
that the present scheme of recruiting has failed to* acquire."
A grave appeal was made by Dr.
G. G. Sedgewick fop calmness and
clearness of vision by the men students if and when conscription
comes in.
"It Is our duty to contribute to
the war effort just aa It Is to pay
taxes. Do not use "nigardly criticism" of the government. That
sort of thing Is subversive."
Dr. Harry Warren too, pleaded
for an understanding of the government's position. He said that
tho difference of money received
by militray and civil workers was
due to improper administration.
"Everyone must realize that the
government is in the position to
know best. We must all do our
duty by finding the place where
we are most needed."
And Anally Professor McKay
drew on the battles of ancient
Greece to illustrate a point that
conscripted armies fight well.
AS IN GREECE
"Those armies drove the Persian
armies out of Greece. We must
conscript wealth too, il it is needed.    An   armed   and   determined

community will demand it.
Jack Currie, head of the committee for arranging the forums,
announced yesterday that an attempt will be made to get Premier
John Hart, Opposition Leader Pat
Maitland, and C.C.F. Leader Harold Winch on the campus to debate
the same topic.

Mr. McBride Goes To Washington
• TED McBRIDE, President, and Keith Porter, Treasurer
of Student Council, came back recently from a conference with delegates from the University of Washington in
Seattle with the firm conviction that U.B.C. possesses a much
more democratic system of student government.
In a report just issued, they out- m^^mmmmmmmmmammm^^mmmmmmm
line the U of Wa form of government explaining how tho faculty,
through having a majority on the
Board of Student Finances, controls the purse-strings, and hence
the policy of the student activities.
PURSE STRINGS
The .Student Council, with representatives from all factions on
the Campus, exercises general supervision over student activities
and controls all monies relegated
to them by the Finance Board.
These amount to about $80,000, a
small sum compared with the annual income of the Board, which
is in the total of about $500,000.
Among the most interesting
points in the U. of W.'s financial
system, is the Student Book Store,
which has the largest volume of
business of any book store in the
United States. It is controlled by
the students and has developed
into what is almost a Department
Store, handling all types of merchandise.
$10.00 FEE
A fee of $10.00 is paid by all
undergraduates. This entitles them
to receive the "Washington Daily",
student newspaper, and to a free
or reduced admission to many athletic functions and concerts, similar to our "Pass System."
Washington's larger enrolment
enables them to bring the best
artists on the continent to their
Campus. Their representatives
suggested that U.3.C. might work
out a co-operative plan with the
smaller Pacific Coast universities
to bring worthwhile talent here.
The general opinion was that
U.B.C. has done much more to aid
the war effort than our southern
neighbour. The Washington dele-
gat's were very much interested
in U.B.C.'s War Aid Council, and
have since tljen more or less adopted the same organization.
CORSAGES
The action of U.B.C.'s War Aid
Council in banning corsages at
social functions brought forth the
suggestion that we adopt some
such scheme as Washington's "Government Gardenia" a flower-shaped piece of paper with a defense
stamp attached to it.
The report concludes: "The Conference was most eventful from the
point of view of improving relations and strengthening our ties
with the University of Washington .. . There is no doubt that by
the time the Conference was over
they had a very healthy respect
far our University."

Girls Ban
Christmas
Rushing
• THE PANHELLENIC Association revised their rushing rules
at a meeting of delegates from
each sorority last Saturday.
Spring Teas and Christmas rushing have been abolished.
Instead of Spring Teas, pamphlets containing information on
the sororities will be mailed in the
spring to girls in first year on
tills campus and to all girls at
Victoria College.
During the first two weeks of
the 'fall term, each sorority will
have a tea which will be open to
all girls. One closed function of
each sorority will be held during
the following four to six weeks
and prospective rushees will be
allowed to attend four such
functions.
There will be no Christmas
rushing but in Its place, there
will be "open bidding" from January IS to February 1.
The custom of the rotation of
officers in Panhellenic will be discontinued and the officers will be
elected by the representatives
ftom each sorority.
Car Parking
On Varsity
Roadsjllegal
• "PEOPLE don't seem to realize
(he seriousness of this offence."
This is the opinion of Joe Burgess, Varsity groundsman, regarding the parking of cars on Varsity
roads. Burgess may be seen almost every day writing down the
license numbers of offending cars,
and writing warning notes to their
owners.
Culprits receive one warning,
are then fined $2.00 for a second
offence, and $5.00 for a third.
The only parking place for student cars is the parking lot north
of the Auditorium. It is a little
known fact that the parking lot
by the tennis courts off the East
Mall is for the library staff only.
Five Free Films
Shown To-night
• AT 8:15 TONIGHT in the
Varsity Auditorium, the Extension Department is presenting
five free features open to the
public. This showing will be the
last one until September.
The program consists of: "Face
of Britain" by Paul Rotha, showing Industrialism and its effects in
Britain. "Alaska's Sliver Millions"
portraying the resources of
Alaska; "Workmates" a story of
the life of pit ponies In coal
mines; "Wings Over World Wonders" a film of a trip by air over
some of the modern world
wonders; and "Australia Marches

Australian war industries.

Students liable for military training may be exempted to take advantage of this offer, it was also
disclosed.
OVER 18 POSITIONS
The positions available are with
the division of Agricultural Bacteriology and Dairy Research (1),
division of Botany (6), division of
Chemistry (6), division of Entomology (5) and probably positions
in the western provinces with the
Economics division of the Marketing Service,
■Any student interested should see
Dean Buchanan at once as applications must be filed before March
31.
Salaries of the positions are expected to be, with one year of
training, $900; with two years of
training, $960; with one season of
subsequent satisfactory experience,
$1020; with three years of training,
$1080; with one or more seasons of
subsequent satisfactory experience,
$1140.
The salaries paid, however, will
be dependent on the qualifications
of the appointee, the duties of the
position involved and the funds
available. It is possible, therefore,
that a candidate may be offered
work at a lower salary range than
that for which he is qualified.
ALL-CANADIAN COMPETITION
As in previous competitions, candidates from all parts of Canada
will be considered for appointment
to positions with headquarters at
Ottawa. In the event of local positions requiring to be filled in various provinces, however, preference
will be given to qualified persona
who resided in the province in
which the vacancy occurs for a
period of at least one year prior
to the last date for the receipt of
applications.
The usual regulations with regard to British citizenship and five
years residence in Canada are to
be observed.
Barer's Mango *
Framed Library
Pic Wins Contest
• THE CAMERA CLUB photography contest was won by
Ralph Barer, 2nd year engineer.
Ralph's winning picture was a
picturesque study of the Library
which was built In 1922. The Library is seen drifting through the
overhanging branches of a local
mango tree.
Well, anyhow, the picture would
have been printed but we are trying to save metal so it won't bo
printed until after the war.
Next year the club will hold
many more contests and hopes to
get the same large number of entries. All entries can be picked
up at the Pub.
U.B.C. War Effort
Second To None Of
Canadian Colleges
• AS THE MOST extensive program of money collecting
for War Charities ever conducted on this campus drew
to a close with the last Self Denial Day of the year Wednesday, figures were released showing that since the 1942-43
term began $5,939.86 has been gathered by the student body.
This amount exceeds last year's total by almost $800.
U.B.C. students may feel justly proud of this achieve*
ment, for it proves that our war effort is second-to-none when
compared with that of other universities across the Dominion.
Much credit for organizing and conducting the special
drives, including the "Mile of Pennies" campaign, I.S.S. Week
and the Victory-Bond Drive, is due the War Aid Council;
and for the weekly Self-Denial days, the Women's Undergraduate Society. $1,226 was collected during the three week-
long drives mentioned, and $816.87 from Self-Denial Days.
Largest single contribution came from the Greek Letter Red
Cross Ball, which netted $1900.
DISBURSEMENT
Branching out from the practice of former years of
giving the total contribution to the Canadian Red Cross, the
War Aid Council this year decided to support several other
worthy war funds. Consequently, the total has been distributed as follows: ,
"Milk for Britain's Babies" Fund   $535.00
International Student Service     391.00
Victory Bond Fund    300.00
Mt. Allison U. Relief Fund    100.00

EVERyWHERE THE SAME THING...
LIBRARIES BEG FOR LOST BOOKS
•   "OWING to the loss of books
this library is now closed until
further notice."
The situation, thus summed up
by the sign on the door of Hart
House Library, University of
Toronto, has been brought about
by the disappearance of fifteen
books during the fall term and at
least six this term.
Most missed are the latest best
sellers, from the new book shelf.
Unfortunately, according to "the
rules of the House, stolen books
may not be replaced from the fund
provided for that purpose until
three years have elapsed.
It is hoped that, as happened
three years ago when the same
situation took place, the books will
be replaced as a result of this

Upheld By Speakers
VARSITY SERVICE
STATION
AT THE GATES
"Our Service Means
Happy Motoring"
The Science Lecture Room was
again the scene of heated argument
when the Day Division Debating
Union continued its discussion of
the legalization of prostitution,
Briefly summarizing his points,
Jacques Richardson, speaker for
the affirmative stated that through
legalization of prostitution the
spread of venereal diseases could
be controlled. Doris Meier on the
other hand, affirmed that only
through proper sex education in
the home, school and church, could
the problem be alleviated. Only
a change in our socio-economic
system could totally eradicate the
evil.
The meeting was then opened
to the audience, who directed
questions to the speakers and a
general discussion followed.
One student cited an Instance in
which tho abolition of prostitution
had been accomplished. "Russia,"
he said, "has been able to accomplish this by a three-fold approach
—assuring economic security, making marriage easy and by the rehabilitation of the prostitutes themselves."
. Contributions made by those in
tho audience with a clear knowledge of the subject were instrumental in giving to many who attended a better understanding of
the problem.
Continuing its schedule of debates, the union will present next
week "Resolved that Sterilization
is an Efficient means of Controlling Social Errors." Participating
in the debate will be Reuben Leit-
man, Ken Lamb, B. Stein and Herb
Lansdell.

Mummery
Reprinted
In East
• JABEZ and his columns provide humour not only for the
students of U. B. C. but for readers right across Canada. Ever
since "The Gateway" reproduced
the masterpiece about the C. O.
T. C„ complete with open letter
to Jabez, various college papers
have reprinted his columns.
The "New Advance" reprinted
the C. O. T. C. column entitled
"One Thousand and One Reasons
For Joining the Navy." Although
this publication neglected to give
sources for the column it provided
illustrations for the action described.
The Mummery in which Jabez
described his adventures at an
"intellectual meeting" evidently
amused the editors of the McGill
Daily for it was reproduced in its
entirity under the heading of
Jabez, which seems to signify
humourous reading to the editors
and readers alike.
Nothing Like This .
... In 1942, Says Paton
Speaking of Men...
• MEN ARE divided into twj
classes — the Possible, and the
Impossible, or What You Wouldn't Be Seen Dead With. Unfortunately the Possible lists of most
women are apt to conflict, which
results in some of the Possibles
becoming Impossibles under the
subheading Unavailable For Immediate Distribution.
There are very few strictly available men. A strictly available'man
is one who is agreeable, mostly
unromantic, takes out impartially '
at least three girls, and does not
work too hard. The second available class is composed of men not
too firmly attached to one temporary girl. With a little work by
the right person,their coupons are
readily detachable and are redeemed about once every two
months. The dividends are quite
large but uncertain. Finally, there
are the men quite steadily attached
to one girl. That there are possibilities here has been shown by
several notable cases lately. You
see, the poor lads are classified as
unavailable by most girls, and
when someone really sets out to
pay them a little attention they
are pushovers, unless the faithful
habit has been too deeply ingrain
ed.
Kl
HOW TO GET YOUR MAN
The problem of getting your man
has troubled women of all ages.
In the Middle Ages they seemed
to believe that love potions were
quite effective. The general recipe
was frogs' legs, a hair of a dead
child, a double-jointed finger
bone, and a pinch of sasparilla.
The modern equivalent is caviar,
cocktails and etchings, but of
course, co-eds frequently find this
impossible. Or at any rate, improbable.
So here the first rule of getting
your man is to make up your mind
to do the job thoroughly. Half-
measures are no good. You mu3t
be prepared to use coercion, blackmail and abduction. Short of this,
the first point it to make a good
impression. No tripping over lamp-
stands. Then you set out to make
occasions to see the one and only.
You look up C.O.T.C. lists, do
some neat worming within with his
friends to find his activities; you
dog his footsteps like a bloodhound
to discover his favorite haunts.
You lie in wait three hours and
then say sweetly,
"Oh, hello! I didn't expect to
see you here!"
Don't be afraid of going too far.
There was once a girl who took
Medicine on account of a Med. He
flunked out at Christmas, but she
became a successful doctor!
TURN ON THE HEAT
Then you turn on the personality. You wear his favorite color
and his favorite hair style. You
join the organization he belongs to,
and follow his dictum in all
things. However there are limits.
No man likes a sensible girl all of
thc time, nor a romantic girl all
of the time. Be a double bill. And
if he says he approves of overstockings, he is lying. And if he
does not approve of lipstick, make
him more closely acquainted with
it.
At the last minute you turn
tempermental.  One  day   you  get
him to tell you all his troubles;
next day you make him jealous.
One day you are sweet, the next
chilly. You blame him for what
you did and then forgive him.
When he is thoroughly bewildered
you melt and he surrenders. I
hope.
And if after all this he hasn't
bitten, comes Sadie Hawkins,
when you take a good strong rope,
lasso him, and run for the nearest
J.P.
Once you have a man, there are
rules for keeping him. Also for
getting rid of him. But these are
elementary, my dear Watson.
After this there only remains
one big problem: What did . you
want him for in the first place?
Which is one thing I never
could understand. <

throwing into the past one of the
university's   time-honoured   traditions.
For many a year now the Pub

tho gin. Such was last year's
Gooncr which struck an amazed
campus bearing a huge headline
proclaiming "Beast Stalks

But this spring, right up until
the first week In April, the
Ubyssey will be printed in its
usual staid form.

Grad Issue
Planned
For May 15
• "THERE will again be a
special Graduation Issue
of the Ubyssey this spring",
Editor-in-Chief of Publications Archie Paton announced yesterday.
The first special Graduation edition appeared last May 15 at the
time of Graduation Day. Very
successful, this Pierre "Blue
Eyes'' Berton venture featured
"Wartime Graduation" as its theme
and emphasized military and other
war activities of the University.
Like 1941's publication, the 1942
Graduation Ubyssey will be a sixteen-page tabloid on smooth paper
and will appear approximately
May 15. It will b«* edited by Jack
Ferry and Margaret "Dinah" Reid.
One feature will be stories on
the male and female "Graduates
of the Year."
Starting with today's Ubyssey
the staff is calling for information
on graduates and under-gradu-
ates killed on active service. Their
names will be included in an Honour Roll to be published in the
special May paper. Forms for this
Information will be found on page
three. All should be signed clearly and left in the Pub Office.
With every Indication that printing metal priorities will force
abandonment of the Totem for the
duration, it is hoped that the Graduation Issue can be developed to
take its place in some respects. A
start in this direction will be
made this year.

• DISGUSTED with the a-

the Arts executive for the
asking.
The elections for the positions,
ot Vice-President, Secretary, and
Treasurer, scheduled for Thursday
noon, were cancelled when the usual small turn-out reached a new
low of four. >
DISCOURAGED
Discouraging in the light of extensive publicity given them over
the I'.A. system and on signboards, these results have led McNeely to decide that no further
attempt will be made to force
Artsmen to choose their own officers.
"If any Artsmen are sufficiently
interested in holding these positions to submit their names at the
Pub, they may have them," said
McNeely.
Meeting Of
Grad Class
Monday Noon
• ALL MEMBERS of the graduating  class   are  expected  to
turn out to an important meeting
in Arts 100 on Monday at noon.
The meeting is for the purpose of
electing the executive for this
year's grads.
Last year's executive consists of
BUI Wallace, president, Art Rae,
vice-president, Janet Wajker, secretary, and Gerry Armstrong,
treasurer. Also elected are a class
poet, valedictorian, and a member-
at-large.
No nominations are to be handed

Phi Delts; Zeta Psi

Special of the Year
•   LED BY DON McLEAN, who won the 440 and the 880,

Mural Track and Field Meet yesterday by a total of 26
points, one point over their nearest rivals Zeta Psi.
Delta Upsilon placed third with
a total of 14V4 points while the
Fiji's took fourth place with 11
points.
Biggest attraction of the entire
meet was the thrilling Medley
Race run off as the last feature
In the contest. It was in this race
that the Meet winners picked up
enough points to take top honours.
In the 100 yard dash it was
Mike Young, of Zeta Psi who took
first place. Time for this event was
10.5 seconds. Stu Madden placed
second and P. Mathewson a close
third. Joe Naylor ran fourth for
the Fiji squad.

for experts only. Ap Roberts, the
Zete, placed first with a mighty
heave of 109 feet, while Wickstrum
took second. Third and fourth
respectively were Fred Hooper for
D. U. and Barton for Kappa Sig.

Sport.Scene Repeated
• PICTURED TRACK scene above, taken by Totem staff photographer Allan Coe, was
repeated yesterday when more than fifty contestants turned out for the two-day Intra-
Mural Field and Track Meet organized and officiated by Maury Van Vliet, Men's Director
of Physical Education. The energetic Van Vliet has laid plans for even bigger and better
such meets for next season.
• The big news in the sport
world of a year ago was the
Victoria Invasion of over one
hundred students who were
accompanying the Thunderbird
hoopers in their quest for the B.
C. title.
The Birds captured the first two
games from the Dominoes at the
Varsity gym by scores of 37-32
and 40-29. Jim Scott and Art Barton were the big guns on the
firing line for the Blue and Gold
boys.
Dave Waddell retained his men's
singles Badminton crown for the
third consecutive time by defeating Stew Burris. Burrls and McBride came through to retain
their Men's doubles by ousting
Waddell and Thompson.
The City Police practically
cinched the Wednesday Soccer
League title by downing the students 5-0 at the Cambie Street
Grounds.
Alpha Gams
Take A.D. Pi's
To Win Tilt
• THE Sorority bowling contest, run off Jn the last few
weeks, proved to be one of tho
"biggest things in the inter-sorority
sport this year. Every one of the
sororities entered a team to play
off for the top spot in the league.
The Alpha Gamma Deltas placed
first, thanks in large measure to
the uncanny ability of their star,
Joan "Strike" Morris. Second
spot went to the Alpha Delta Pi's
and the Kappa's and the Gamma
Phi's finished off in third and
fourth places respectively,
Each sorority team played every
other team, and when the games
were over, the total points were
tabulated to show the above results. The keen spirit and even
scoring can be better appreciated
when it is known that the winners were only ninety points
ahead of the second placers.
The contest proved definitely
that the sporting blood on tho
campus is not. restricted to tho
males, for the girls turned out in
force and spirit.

A last inning rally by the Delts

PITCHING DUEL
Wednesday's tilt, staged on the
Upper playing field, was rated by
Maury Van Vliet, director of the
intra-mural program as "Best
yet."
Locked in a pitching duel wf re
two old-time rivals, Kappa Sig's
Vcrn Grassle, and the* Pi's Orme
Dier. Having hurled against each
other in logging camp competition,
both boys were out for a win.
Thc Kappa Si?;s looked sure to
take ihe game when they capitalized on an error in the second
inning to go out in front 6-1. The
Phi Kaps, however, whittled
away at that lead, and the teams
went into the final inning deadlocked at 8 all.
With Dlcr sending three Sig
batters down in succession, the
Pi's went after Grassle, Spencer
poling out a single, and being
driven home by a screaming,
three-bagger hit by Lynn Sully.
The Phi Pi's must now trim
Psi. U. twice to take top honours,
having previously dropped one
contest. The Psi U. slate is clean.

She'3 a pretty little wench
Sitting there upon the bench
Looking very coy and shy
At every college guy.
Such thrilling eyes
Concentric thighs.
It's too darn bad
She's bald.
I wonder why women don't grow
mustaches?
Didja ever see grass grow on
a race track?
