Hold Wesbrook Ceremony
Before Library Seat, NX^ed-
The Wesbrook Memorial Seat outside the library will be
the scene of a moving ceremony at noon, Wednesday, October
This ceremony has been a tradition for the last 15 years,
held in honour of Dr. Wesbrook, pioneer president of this university,' who died at work after a life shortened by strenuous
effort to make UBC the institution it is today.
Through   his   untiring   devotion
to   the   university   from   1012-1018,
he   has   left   his   Inspiration   and
loyal spirit with the students for
all time.
Because there Is only one opportunity in a college senior's life to attend the rite, Derek McDermott,
Senior Class Presient, -expects every
senior to attend. If the weather does
not permit an outdoor ceremony, lt
will be Inside the library. All those
with cars available are asked to get
in   touch   with   McDermott.
The Honorary President of the
Senior Class, Dr. A. W. Crumb, will
address tho gathering, then lay a
wreath on Wesbrook's tomb at
Mountain  View   Cemetary.
Tho Senior Class of '25, with Honorary President Dr. F. G. C. Wood,
was responsible for founding the
Wesbrook Ceremony, a fine tribute
to the man who was the most Instrumental In attending this university.

Gold Medallist
Escapes Nazis,
Gets High Post
ii i ■ —
Appointment of A. E. Carter,
brilliant U.B.C. graduate, to
the staff of Princeton University is arousing great interest
among his friends on this campus.
News of his appointment is accompanied with details of his dramatic
career since leaving this campus In
In the graduation ceremonies in May,
1938, Carter took highest honors by
taking the Governor-General's Gold
Medal. He ls reported to be one of
the most brilliant students ever to
graduate from the Department of
modern languages ln this university.
Soon after his graduation, he set
out for Paris where he hoped to study
for his doctor's degree. He confidently began his studies there, little realizing that Nazi invasion would prevent their completion.
When war broke out, he decided to
continue his studies in Paris. From
tho nation's capital, he had an excellent vantage point from which to
watch the events of the first few
months of war.
Nazi troops began to pour across the
Lowlands, but Carter continued at his
work. Even when frightened Parisians
heard the Nazi guns pounding on the
outskirts of the city, he was still there.
Finally   Paris   fell,   and    Carter
lost all his belongings In a hurried
rush  from  the  capital.    Most  important of these belongings was a
bundle   containing   the   notes   for

Forum To Debate
On War Debts
Should the United States

Such is the question which will be
answered ln the Parliamentary Forum at noon Wednesday in Aggie 100.
Formally, lt has been resolved: "That,
ln the face of the present flght of
tho democracies, the United States
should  cancel  the British  war  debt."'
Leading speaker defending the resolution will be Robert Clark, fourth
year Commerce student. Ken Wardroper, second year Economics student,   will   lead  the   attack.

No Secrets From These Girls
Do you sometimes see one of your friends looking at you
with a knowing air?    It's a bad sign, particularly if he or she

The reason for this drastic change<§>
in tradition, he told the Ubyssey, Is
the war. The toppers encumbered
students during air raid warnings, so
now they are only worn on Sundays.
All over England, he said, old customs and traditions are being forgotten in the same way.
He thought  the frosh  Initiations
"rather    an    amusing    Idea"    but
though   he   laughed   at   the   green
bow and placard, he seems to like
the Informality of U.B.C.
He found, when he came to Canada
this year, quite a contrast in dress to
that   of   the   English  school.    Whereas
here   students   wear   brilliant   sportswear,   in England.  Fell   is  used to  the
sombre  black of Eton clothes.
But although the toppers have
gone, . the stiff "Eton collars" and
black ties are still worn until a student attains the height of five feet,
four Inches, when he graduates to an
ordinary   soft   collar   and   white   tie.
In  spite of differences in  dress,
Fell finds that students are almost
the same underneat.i, all over the
world.      He    thinks   the    military
training Is "absolutely wonderful."
When the war, which forced him to
leave   England,   Is   over,   he   hopes   to
go back  and continue his studies.    At

Asselstine or Friker} Resolves To Stamp
Out Illegal Rushing On University Campus
Heavy penalties imposed on the Phi Delta Theta fraternity
by the Inter-Fraternity Council, for infraction of rushing rules
!was definitely upheld Monday after the Council had met with
the fraternity's representatives.
The penalties were imposed last week by Walter Moody,
president of the Council, after he had received proof of illegal
rushing methods conducted during the cruise to Victoria by the
Phi Delts.
The illegal rushing as reported to Moody by representatives
of three other fraternities consisted of "unlawful and avoidable
contact" with two rushees, Jim Asselstine _»nd Walter Friker,
during the cruise to Victoria—a day not allotted the fraternity
for rushing purposes.

his action was entirely Impartial,
"I was put in my position to follow

refrain  from   illegal  rushing.
Defending the position of his
fraternity, Bill Wallace, president
of the Phi Delts, pointed out that
tho penalty Inflicted was as harsh
against the two rushees aa It was
against the fraternity. The Council over-ruled hla point, maintaining that It waa the Phi Delta, not

had tolled to safeguard the position of the two men.
Wallace also argued that the clause
concerning  penalties  -was   inoperative
owing to the ambiguity of the -words.

to one-man, Wallace asserted.

Illegal Rushing
The old question of illegal rushing has
come up once more, this time more seriously
than ever before. One fraternity has been
charged of rushing two men during the Thanksgiving excursion to Victoria. A trial was held
at an Inter-Fraternity Council meeting last
Friday, arid the fraternity was found guilty.
Walt Moody, president of the Inter-Fraternity
Council, imposed the penalty that the fraternity should not be allowed to bid either man this
This penalty is a severe one, but Walt
Moody has stated his intention to do away with
illegal rushing, if possible, and he believes tHat
this cannot be done under the old penalties of
small fines. He is right insofar as a fraternity
is often willing to pay a fine in order to get
a man.
Members of the Phi Delta Theta fraternity
claim that the president of the Inter-Fraternity
Council did not interpret the constitution correctly, that because of the ambiguity of certain
words, the clause about penalties was inoperative. They also said that one man 'in the
I.F.C. should not have the complete power of
imposing any penalty he liked on any fraternity
that is found guilty of illegal rushing, charging that such power is autocratic and not at all
I.F.C. members sustained the president's
decision, saying that they had elected him in
a completely democratic fashion to use his discretion in such cases as the present one, in the
matter of imposing a penalty.
The Phi Delta Thetas also claimed that
the president's penalty inflicted as much hardship on the rushees as on the fraternity itself.
They said that the rushees should be allowed
to join any fraternity they please and not be
forced away from one fraternity by a penalty
for which they were not to blame.
Most of the representatives of the other
fraternities took the stand that the Phi Delta
Theta fraternity was the one that interferred
with the rights and privileges of the rushees
when it rushed them illegally.
The accused fraternity ls right when it
says that the clause giving full power to impose any penalty to the president is autocratic
and might become dangerous in the hands of
a prejudiced or unscrupulous man. In this
case, we believe that the penalty was handed
out quite fairly and without any personal motives whatsoever, that the president's connection with one fraternity did not influence his
decision. But the possibility is always there
that an unfair president may be elected. The
clause should be re-worded to limit in one
way or another the penalty to be imposed, or
to have the penalty presented to the Inter-
Fraternity Council for approval before it is actually  imposed.
In this particular case, the Inter-Fraternity
Council should be by all means upheld. It has
a definite constitution, and if it is not going
to follow that constitution, it had better draw
up a new one, or collapse entirely. Rules are
made to be enforced, and the enforcements
should be strong enough to prevent a recurrence of any breaking of them. The Council
should be commended for standing firmly with
the constitution in face of the threats of one
fraternity to break away, if necessary.
Fraternities are not greatly encouraged on
this campus by the University authorities. For
that reason, the Inter-Fraternity Council must
retain control over all fraternity affairs to prevent any wild actions that would prejudice the
fraternities' position on this campus. If the
Council enforces its constitution, it cannot be
censored in any way for Causing trouble on the
The  Mummery
By Jabez
Every once in a while a reader sends in a
letter to the Ubyssey which we can publish.
On these occasions, the pub staff whips an
Underwood smartly around the Infield, while
the Editor-in-chief tears up a couple of copies
of the Vancouver Daily Province with a faraway look in his eyes. Here ls one that was
received some time ago:
The Editor, The Ubyaaey.
Dear Sir,
I am one of the girls who are taking
Dr. Morsh's course, Psychology 0, and the
other day we were given our first project.
In order to complete thia project, I have
got to have a baby. Could you help me in
any way, do you think?
Dear Curious,
Unfortunately, the Editor suffered a sudden seizure immediately after reading your
letter, and was unable to frame what he considered to be an adequate reply. I, therefore,
shall attempt to resolve your difficulty, having
drawn the short straw. First, I would like to
say that I am not in the least surprised by your
assignment. The psychology department is
not to be trusted in this or any other University. But what does seem rather remarkable
is the fact that this is your first project. That
is, the first project in your course.
Has Dr. Morsh, by any chance, given you
an outline of any of the subsequent assignments? I should say that this is of vital importance to you, Curious, unless you just don't
care what they say back in Cloverdale. Think
it over very carefully. Follow your better
judgment, even though it means dropping the
course. Education isn't everything, you know.
Ha. Ha. Plenty of people get along splendidly
without having ever acquired a formal education, and many of them have degrees.
The only further suggestion that I can
make, in a popular work of this kind, is that
you refrain from discussing your problem with
sciencemen. The will undoubtedly take a personal interest in the affair, but psychology is
still listed as a subject in Arts, and there is no
reason why we should patronize another
faculty. In conclusion, I might point out, too
late, perhaps, that it was extremely rash to
take a course in psychology in the first place.
I took one once, and barely escaped with my
life. They wanted me to knock down bananas
with a stick.
It has been revealed that, during the
registration period, a horde of little men, hirelings of the Department, run about, spreading the vile rumour that "Psychology is easy.
Take some for your health!" As your predicament demonstrates, it is too easy.
If you go through with this project,
Curious, they -will have enough on you to
make you take Psych. 2, 3, 4, S, 6, 7, 8, and
Directed Reading Courses, which will keep
you haggard for the rest of your natural
life. And all the while, the Department
will be leering and cackling behind its
color-blind tests.
It is coming to be realized that the psychologist must be carefully treated, both before
and after death. He is competely unscrupulous once he has his nose to the scent of an
An excellent example of his twisted
genius is furnished by the famous Dr. Elf
Moonglow, head and body of the Department
of Psychology at the University of Bagdad. It
was he who wrote the Varsity yell, known all
over Arabia:
"Rah! Rah! Bagdad, kick 'em in the shin!
Give 'em h - - 1, but you Bedouin!"
Moonglow left the Department soon after
this, at the request of the Board of Governors.
He established himself in Tuttut County,
Arkansas, where he has built his magnificent
sanitarium, Moonglow's Merry Madhouse. You
have probably seen his advertisements, which
appear regularly on the back of those modern
magazines that you hide under the cushion —
such lures as "Trade in your old inhibitions on

Fruit Salad
Pat Keatley
Several surprising quotes from the
magazine Esquire are reproduced below.   I  mention this as bait.
First let me present a sordid piece
of scum that has floated to our shores
on the Japan current straight from
the Land of the Rising Sun.
If you don't like double features,
you won't relish this latest example
of two-facedness. Quoting from the
Japan  Chronicle  of  Tokyo:
"It was the unconscious humor
that Herr Helfferlch, distinguished
visitor from tho Oerman Reich, reminded a recent gathering ln
Osaka that 'signing pacts la not
enough to ensure true friendship
between any two nations.' He Is
right, of course."
Following on the heels of the Berlin-Tokyo-Rome pact, this ls a gem.
I should only add that the word
"heels"  is correct in this context.
In a democracy this kind of
bungling Is usually glossed over under the heading of "freedom of
speech". But Japan is not a democracy. The item appeared in a government-controlled newspaper. It reports a meeting held in Osaka several months before the signing of the
recent pact. In a democracy this kind
of bungling is conventionally glossed
over by vague refereces to Magna
Carta, British Consols, sceptral isle,
and freedom of speech, after which
the offending party is kicked upstairs. But Japan is not a democracy.
The quote can best be explained in

Student Opinion
Dear Sir:
Has it ever occurred to the students
of this campus that U.B.C, while
providing courses ln almost e very
imaginable subject, has entirely neglected to prepare them for one of the
most Important phases of life— marriage. Practically all the large American universities have recognized
this need and now provide courses
in marriage preparation and sex. Undoubtedly U.B.C. will eventually add
these courses to the curriculum so
why not do it now? There is no
need for us to always be about ten
years  behind tho times!
The urgent need for such courses
Is almost self-evident. Most psychologists agree that one of the
main' causes of divorce Is the almost unbelievable Ignorance of
' the general public about sex.
Surely the university Is the logical
placo to start to educate the public.
Any move to establish courses in
sex education must first come from
the student body. What about it,
students? (Signed)   A   9anlor.

Finlay's Pass To Carmlchael Scores'' Freshman Gorman Sparks Squad In First

Coming back strong from last week's loss to Victoria, Varsity's Thunderbirds rolled up their first win of the season when
they scored a 6—0 win over Vancouver Bulldogs last Saturday
night at Athletic Park.
Out-kicked, out-passed, and usually out-run, Varsity fell
back on the old college fight to take advantage of Vancouver's
The only score of the game came in the second quarter
on a sleeper forward pass from Finlay to Carmlchael, who
ran the ball from 20 yards out for a touchdown.    Harmer
converted for the extra point.
The weather wasn't exactly ideal for football and the game
didn't show much excitement until the last five minutes. All
the drama of the game (with the exception of a score) — injuries, fumbles, Vancouver passes — was packed into one big,
last minute explosion that sent the spectators home pleased.
Despite the fact that they were playing without Al Gardiner
and Ernie Teagle, the Thunderbirds showed definite improvement. The line played heads up most of the way and helped
to recover half of Vancouver's fumbles. Wood and Tucker at
ends worried the Bulldog backs all night.
In the flrst few minutes of the
game, Bud Fairgrleve was forced to
the showers with a banged up knee.
This slowed up Varsity for a while
but by the end of the last quarter
they were in their stride. From then
on rookie Ray Gorman did most of
the ball carrying and his consistent
gains through centre made him the
star  of  the   game.
In the second quarter, Gorman reeled over two conscaMtlve flrst downs
and eventually touched off Varsity's
march   to  the   winning   touchdown.
When Gorman's attack bogged
down, Vancouver received the ball
from Harmer's kick on their own 25.
Vancouver kicked on their next third
down and Gorman ran it back almost 15 yards. From then on it was
U.B.C. all the way.
After an unsuccessful running attack by Finlay and Cote, Harmer
kicked on last down. When the Bulldog receiver fumbled, Varsity recovered to gain possession of the ball.
On the next play Finlay attempted
to pass to Gorman,  but was blocked.
With a yard to go on last down,
Varaity faked a kick and ran the
ball   through   centre   for   a   first
down     on     Vancouver's    24-yard
stripe.     On  tlie   next   down,   Finlay   threw   a   beautiful   pass   to
Carmlchael, who ran 20 yards for
tho  only  touchdown  of the game.
Harmer's     convert     brought     the
scoro  to  Its  final  position,   Thunderbirds 8,  Bulldogs 0.
Just   before   th-e   score,   Carmlchael
had   been   shifted   from   the    line   to

Quarterback, making him eligible to
receive the pass. Vancouver hadn't
noticed and made a claim of "ineligible receiver" when Curmlchael hit
pay   dirt.
During most of the second half,
both lines held the opposing backs
in check. Gorman, however, did get
away for some nice gains and on
one occasion took the ball from the
Vacouver 26 around left end and in
the clear, only to be tackled near
the line by Garnie Smith, who ran
all over the field and made Vancouver many a yard.
With five minutes to go, Gorman
again provided the spark that set off
the big explosion. On Varsity's flrst
down from their own 15, he made
a grand run down to th-e centre
mark, where he had the breath
knocked out of him. The referee
added Insult to Injury by calling the
play back. The Thunderbird kick
on the next play wis eventually
placed by Vancouver on the college
22 yard line. Then things began to
In quick succession, the Red and
White team reeled off a flrst down
by laterals, only to lose ground again
on a fumble. A completed pass by
Brandon pushed Van Vliet's men into a dangerous spot. Vancouver a-
gain passed, thia time incomplete,
giving the ball to the Gold and Blue,
who relieved by kicking. With a
minute to go, Garnie Smith received
another Bulldog pass and again set
U.B.C. back. In a desperate effort
for a tying score, with only seconds
to go, Vancouver tossed still another
forward, which this time Gorman intercepted in the clear. Before he
could get started the gridiron whistle
blew to end the  contes-t.

Senior B Triumph
As Frosh Lose
Varsity Senior Bees, 1940-41 edition, continued their winning ways
of last year with a smart 31-25
triumph over Lynwood on Thursday
night at  King  Ed.  gym.
Lynwood   are  last  years Pro-Recs.
Lynwood started off with the first
basket and a free shot. Varsity countered with two free throws and a
basket to Lynwood's other free toss
to end up the quarter at 4 all.
From here on the lead sea-sawed
back and forth until the dying moments when a quick basket by Bob
Davie, who inclclently scored 12
points, and one by Eric Robinson put
the   game   on   ice.
Special rating goes to Norm Armstrong for his sensational checking
of Purves, a six foot, four pivot man
of the Lynwood quintet, and to Bob
Davie, A) Menzles and Art Barton
for their steady play.
In the Int. A tussle, the Frosh put
up a game battle but lost to the ex-
Tech of New Wesmlnster by a count
of 30-23.
Although only notified of the game
at lunch time, they gave a good fight
and with a few more practices they
will  really   start  stepping.
The scores:
Senior   B  —  Barton,  Menzlcs  4,
Armstrong   9,   Claridge   2,   Roblnaon   4,   Davie   12,   Harry,   Nikado,
Int.   A   —   Dean   7,   Helsler   14,
Smith,   Dennis,   Crocker,   Johnson,
Nygard  2,   Cunningham,  Fleming,
Hetherington, Louie.

Gordie Livingstone and Ormle Hall,
two of Varsity's leading golfers, will
officiate at the flrst lesson session.
Livingstone and Hall, while admitting they are not exactly professionals, are still willing, however, to help

are still a little mystified by it all.
The flrst lesson will be composed
strictly ln teaching the fundamentals.
The session will last an hour arid

U.B.C. lost its same on Saturday
to last year's champions, Pro-Rec.
The score? Well, If we must tell, it
was 6 to 1. Betty Mulr, the only
forward left of last year's line, scored
the   goal  In  the  second  period.
"Can't Gerry be pursuaded to turn
out for hockey?" Is the cry of coach
and team alike. Gerry Armstrong
could spark the unorganized forward
line. Gerry, however, ls trying her
hand at basketball, and so the hockey
team  mourns  her  loss.
Changes   in   the   line-up  are   In
view   in  order  to   strengthen   the
team.     Pro-Recs   are   coming   out

. . . JIM SCOTT, six-foot science-
man of the Varsity basketball

second year of university has
signed with the U.B.C. team and
despite his heavy course is showing mid-season form at the work-
Don't raise your child to be a gym
Mothers take care not to let your
child slip Into the vile clutches of
the athletic sweat box.
Take our own Maurice L. Van
Vliet for example. Men's Physical
Education Director is the label they
pinned on him In 1936. So what?
So for four years the ex-Oregonian
sat on his miffie vainly trying to build
up intra-murals, and majority-competitive sports, and getting no cooperation.
Then along comes Hitler, and the
boys with the brass buttons suddenly
decide "Yes, indeed, we must look
after the health of our young men.
Maurice old man, build their bally
bodies." (The quotes are our own,
and   rather  cute,   too.)
So Van Vliet. trusting soul, forsakes hl3 annual summer jaunt to
Oregon for a sweaty session at
Sarcee, emerging after the allotted
time, a fully competent Instructor in
army P.E.
What they did to that man shouldn't happen to a dog. Not even his
own   pooch,   Varsity.
That kindly light In his optics,
that ready grin, that affable handshake,   that   soft   spoken   manner
...   all   gone.     In   Its   place,   the
gaunt shell of the man we used to
love,   a   hard-bitten   snarling   Inquisitor   with   but   one   object   of
life: building bodies for blitzkriegs.
The guy's gone commercial!
He   appears   on   the   Campus   at   a
hollow-eyed   hour,   with    barely    enough   time   to   snatch    breakfast    in
Underbill's   cavern,   before   sweeping
out   the   previous    day's    corpses    in
readiness   for  the   next.
Don't   stop   to   ask    him    why    he
didn't   pull   old   77   on   the   Revellers.
He's   just   as  likely  to   break   into   a
detailing   of   a   Danish   double   back
twist and  crab  walking combined.
His   home   life  has   been   shattered.    Hla faithful dog, good old
Varsity, cowers at the very sight
of   his   once   benevolent   master,
while his young son has positively
refused to become a quarterback.
"Looklt   football   did   for    the    old
man", wee Maurie jeered, In between
Psych 9 classes.    "Some guys become
stumble   bums,   or   even   morons,   or
sell   insurance.       But   what   does   ray,
meal  ticket  do?"
We paused, knowing dam' well lt
was  a  rhetorical  question.
Van Vliet, junior, continued: "He
goes army-physical-educatlon-training crazy and now we aint got a
friend In the world . . . except the
colonel, and I don't like contract
bridge. So I'm being snubbed, jeered
and bored to death. Me and Varsity
don't   HWe   It."
A similar quote from thc missis
can be obtained from the Woman's
Suffrage League who arc handling
thc case for her. However, Mrs.
Van V. docs wish to assure her
basic friends that "he" does not
beat her every day, as a tapering off for his mystical rites ln the
Torture  Temple.
Meanwhile, unperturbed by these
sporadic revolts, the red-thatched
mentor of muscle continues his
vicious attacks on this fair university's youth. Oblivious to the screams
of victims, he plays his nefarious
n-ecromancy while the greying Sid
silently sweeps the bodies Into the
shower   room.
