Students To Call Special
A.M.S. Meeting; Resignation

Council Afraid OF
Interference In
Campus  Politics
Turns Down Request
For Organization Of
Conservative Group
Studenta' clubs of a "definitely
political nature" were forbidden to
organise on the campua by Students' Council Monday evening.
The decision ellmaxsd a week
of wild rumor considering the for*
matlon of Conssrvatlvs and Lib*
sral "aotlon clubs" at U.B.O., and
waa reached by eounell after a
brief dlsousslon of ths situation.
Despite Malcolm Brown's promise
that the proposed clubs would not
enter into campus politics, John
Bird expressed the tear that ln the
future the clubs would tend to
wield an Influence in student government.
Brown argued that religious
cluba fall into the same classification
as the proposed political groups,
adding one of his "Brownlsms" to
the discussion by saying that "religious clubs are just turmoils to do
anything with."
Council approved the formation
of a "club for political discussion"
that would Include among Its members  followers of all  parties.
Political eluba might take ateps
that would hinder the university's
relationships with the the government of the day, It waa deelared
during the  dlsousslon.

called by the A.M.S. President.
In this case, the meeting regarding the fights was suggested by a
student, considered by Dave Carey,
and convened at his call.
U.B.C. Has Loveliest
Campus in the World
irltlsh   Weekly"
"llloo," noted Old Country columnist, writing In the Soottlsh
edition of the "British Weekly"
recently acclaimed U.B.C. aa possessing the most beautiful campus In the world.
"Of those sites which I have
seen," he stated, "I ahould give
high place to the glorious campus
of the Unlveralty of British Columbia at Vancouver, aet among
gardens and overlooking the Pacific   Ocean."
A petition for an extraordinary meeting of the Alma
Mater Society was being circulated on the campus Wednesday
and Thursday, sponsored by students desiring to have an
open discussion of the Students' Council decision banning
political groups at U.B.C.
Monday, after a week of wild rumors regarding the
proposed formation of Liberal and Conservative student
cluba here, council discussed the situation, and placed a
ban on such clubs.
The petition appearing Wednesday was supported not
only by those who were in favor of student political organizations, but by those who desired to Bee the whole question
aired at an A.M.S. meeting.     	
It is pointed out that if such a
meeting is called, and the student
body reverses the council decision,
this move would amount to a vote
of "no confidence" in Students'
Probable result of suoh a vote
would  be tha resignation  of all
eounell members.
Several    c o u n cillors    Indicated
Thursday that they would quit their
posts if the students voted for the
establishment of political clubs on
the campus.
Council's decision was made after
a discussion of the problem, and it
was suggested that a "club for political discussion" could serve the
purpose of training students ln public  affairs.
One group of students who are
definitely dissatisfied with the council ban declare that the governing
body his overstepped Its rights ln
outlawing political clubs.
Council members deny this, and
point out that few students have
any knowledge of the full power
given to the A.M.S. board of directors.
There   la  a   suggestion   In   the
argumenta againat the  Ineeptlon
of  political  eluba,  that the   unlveralty    a d m Inletratlon    would
atop In and ban these  groups If
eounell did not.
If  the  deoislon  of  the  proposed
A.M.S. meet gave approval to the
clubs, Students' Council could still
block them by not passing the minutes at ita next meeting.
All business of Alma Mater meetings must be approved by counoil
before any suggestion goes on to
the statute booka. Usually, council
passes A.M.S. meeting minutes
without discussion.
It Is within ths power of eounell,   however,  to  take  advantage
of a "veto" power, and ahelve A.
M.S. meeting  mlnutea.
Whether this would be done by
the present council  is  not known.
It is more likely that the members
would resign following any lack of
confidence motion by the students.
New elections for all offices
would have to be held ln this case.
It is felt by many, that a change
of Students' Council personnel ln
mid-term would have a disastrous
effect on Alma Mater Society affairs.
The question of the university's
relationships with the Provincial
Government plays a big part ln the
controversy over campus political
U.B.C. has never "played politics," and lt ls feared that student
political groups might take actions
that would prove fatal to the institution's relationships with Victoria.
Those favoring political clubs,
on the other hand, say that consideration of such an aspect of the
situation is akin to quelling free
speech, and the rights of cltisens
to  organize  politically.

Random Ramblings
The discussion on "Politics on the Campus," occupying
the forefront of the news today, can be divided under three
main heads:
The chief objection that the Students' Council puts forward against the formation of clubs of definite political nature
is that these would enter into, and possibly control, campus
politics. A rather fantastic idea in the first place . . . why
should a club to discuss and train for Conservative organization in the political world bother with campus affairs any
more than the Players' Club, or the Musical Society, or the
Publications Board, who really have axes to grind? Their
function would be to train for politics in the "outer" world,
not to practise it on the campus.
Council charges that political clubs would lead to
patronage in appointments to such remunerative positions aa that of the book exchange. Such patronage could
exist today under the fraternity system If Council mem*
bers were unethical to that degree. A political club
would be a more democratic body than a secret society,
and would be even less likely to indulge in such childishness.
Granting for sake of argument that these groups did
take part in our little elections—would it be such a bad thing?
At least, we could be sure there would be enough interest
shown to prevent five out of nine of our student governors
taking offlce uncontested. Perhaps such a system would make
for better control. Too, candidates for offlce would be groomed
and trained for months in advance.
It is time that the schools provided education in party
systems. A clear understanding of the political machine is
generally lacking, and this means helpless and hopeless political bewilderment. The voter who has not that, has nothing
upon which to base political judgments. It is up to the
schools, and in particular to the universities, to provide for
this knowledge.
Here the council made its big mistake—this is a point
which they did not even consider. Not that it is very much
to their discredit—slips like this can easily happen. But for
them to take such an attitude, completely inconsistent with
all British and democratic principles of political freedom, is
Probably the main reason they turned down the idea of
political clubs is because it was from a Conservative group
that the application came, while the university is trying to
secure the favor of Dr. Pattullo's Liberals. Hardly a defensible attitude for University students, from whom future
leadership is expected.
Reverting however to pure principle, If the Code of
the Alma Mater Society allows the council such dictatorial powers to interfere with freedom of thought and
discussion in our University, surely the code must be
The code says "the council shall . . . have control of all
affiliated student activities." Interpreting this in our council's way is little short of Fascism, and cannot be allowed to
pass unchecked.    The code, in this case, is not at fault.
If a meeting of the Alma Mater Society reverses the
council's ban on political clubs, as it undoubtedly will do,
should the council resign ? That is, would such a mandate be
tantamount to a vote of lack of confidence?
Council apparently thinks so. But, as a matter of fact,
they again are wrong. Our society is not based strictly on
the parliamentary form, with an opposition prepared to take
offlce immediately, nor is the council in the parliamentary
sense responsible. To resign over one mistake in a score of
hurried decisions is simply silly.
A survey of student opinion shows decided opposition to the council's ban on political clubs, with equally
strong opposition to the council's resigning.
Thia must be the decision reached in the end. No
confusion or combining of the Issues should be tolerated.

methods of examiners.
THE best known method, and a
favorite with the English department, ls the Staircase Scale. The
examiner stands at the toot of a
flight of Btalrs, and throws the entire batch of essays towards the
top. Those landing on the highest
step get "A," the next "B", and so
on. If you suspect that you are
writing for this type of man, the

such remarkable passages as: "The

Is the time for every good man to
come to the aid of abcdefg what
dopes some professors are as ln
'Othello' and  'King Lear'."
Some examiners recite little
rhymes as they hurry along through
piles of essays with colored pencils. A favorite of the Psychology
department is "C, C plus, C minus,
D," while the French department
use a similar rune ln the key of E.
ly/TOST examiners quote verses of
* Sanskrit periodically along the
margins of essays, translating into
Bnglish occasional words like "unsatisfactory" and "very poor."
There are numerous tricks of
style known to the skilled essayist.
One ls to quote liberally trom any
book the examjner may have written. Experience has also shown
that Buch subjects as Victorian
poetry do best on rose scented paper, while Elizabethan essays receive
good marks when printed In old

Editor of the Ubyssey.
Dear Sir:
There are various possible reasons which might explain the most
unfortunate lack of ability of the
"Varsity Time" quartet (which
sings—allegedly—the Ossy Durkin
hymn) to live up to the high standard set by other membera of the
radio cast.
I have listened carefully to the
broadcasts since their inauguration
some weeks ago, and on none of
them was any offering so pitifully
and completely deficient as the sad
rendition of a really beautiful hymn
last Tuesday.
Whether this regretable situation
is due to lack of interest or ability
on the part of the "singers" or of
their director I do not know and
still less do I care, but it must be
admitted, Sir, that such a truly incompetent exhibition should and
must be removed from the air.
There are many good voices in
the university—I have heard many
of them—and there is no reason
why incompetents should pretend to
truly represent the muscial talent
of the student body.
I feel very strongly on this point,
Sir, and I trust that your valuable
organ will do its share in seeing to
it that "Varaity Time" ahall no
longer be permitted to commit murder on the airwaves.
Yours very truly, Sir,

easy to reach the conclusion tbat you ought to be looking about for gifts
right  away.
Nothing will please dad or the brothers more than a bit of truly comfortable men's wear from FRED HOLMES. Lounging coats, smoking jackets,
slippers, are a specialty. Or if you wish to stick close to convention, shirts,
sox, and ties are not uninteresting Christmas "usuals," when bought at Fred
Holmes' South Granvills store.

Have you looked at yourself in the looking-glass lately? If you notice
carefully you'll see that the permanent you got before you started Varsity is
beginning to droop a little bit and when you start worrying about exams it's
going to droop ever so much more.
Why don't you take an afternoon off this week and have RUSSIAN
DUCHESS BEAUTY SALON give you a permanent which will keep your
spirits up in spite of anything that may come. Russian Duchess permanents
are as soft as naturally curly hair, can be set in any of the newest coiffure
styles you may have admired in magazines or on the screen.
When you are making your appointment for your permanent ask for the
Russian Duchess complimentary make-up analysis which will show you how
system and color make-up can improve the expression of your personality.

An appreciative audience heard
two members of the Noel Coward
stage troupe at present playing in
Vancouver, Thursday noon in Arts
The speakers were Introduced by
Professor F. G. C. Wood. He remarked that lt is five years since
the club has had the opportunity to
present such speakers on the campus.
Robert' Henderson spoke on his
past work and his present assignment as manager of the company
for "Tonight at 8.30." Thla presentation in Vancouver is the only performance of the Noel Coward cycle
ln  Canada.

To  illustrate   the  calibre  of  the
presentations,    Mr.   Henderson   introduced   Bramwell   Fletcher,   who
plays  the  leading  role  ln  each  of
the nine plays.
He proceeded to capture his audience with tales of "Fallen Bridges"
and "Refrain From Striking Matches'  Signs."
His genuine enthusiasm for the
stage and his admirable philosophy
appealed to the student .audience.
His talk ranged from a "Characterization of a Horse" to his closing speech from Sean O'Casey's,

4Open House9
The flrst Open House In three
years will be held at the University, February 5. Instituted successfully ln 1932 by the Enginerlng faculty, Open House has since been
held twice, once ln 1934 and again
ln  1936.
Primarily, the purpose of Open
House is to give outsiders some
idea of the work—experimental and
practical—which Is done by students of the University.
The publicity angle was stressed
by Charlie Campbell, president of
the current Open House committee,
at a meeting last Wednesday.
"This year," said Campbell, "the
show is not to be confined to the
science faculties. Arts, Agriculture, and various campus clubs and
societies are being given an opportunity  to  display  their work."
It ts hoped that the science display, formerly of most interest to
visitors, will be equalled or bettered
by both Arts and Aggies.

Supply and Demand
Shown In Bulletin
A bulletin of particular Interest
to university students has recently
been issued by the Dominion Bureau ot Statistics under the title,
"Supply and Demand in the Professions  ln  Canada."
It shows, for instance, that potential clientele per doctor and lawyer
ts almost twice as great in some
provinces as ln others, and that
Btil wider variations exist between
provinces ln  the case of dentists.
The bulletin also shows that Canadian universities have met little
more than half of the demand for
mining, mechanical and electrical
engineers, designers, draughtsmen
and architects.
The price of the bulletin Is 25
cents. Remittance should be made
payable to the Receiver General of

Women Report
No Jr.eft.
Women's    common    rooms    have
been unaffected by the petty thievery  which  ls  sweeping   the   men's
quarters,  both  in  the gym  and  in
the common rooms.

Mrs. Deane, caretaker of the Arta
and Applied Science buildings, reports that except In the full length
lockers the doors cannot be opened
by pressure at the bottom.
"Because the women's lockers
have no pins they are harder to
open than the men's and so stealing is more prevalent among the
latter body," she declared.
Janitors ask that students be
more careful than ever before ln
the matter of leaving their belongings around common rooms, caf.
tables and outside lockers.
With approaching exama and
winter, many will be victims. Overcoats, lab. notebooks and textbooks
are proving themselves particularly
popular at this season.

In the manner of a friendly ohat
than a formal spasoh.
Speaking of the days in the Yukon, he declared that "it is a mistake to think of the men in the
Gold Rush as being a lawless, godless lot.
"They were not. Apart from the
parasites of the Dawson waterfront,
I have never met a finer set of men
than those, and I am eternally
grateful for the opportunity given
me by the church to have lived
among them.
"I have no patience." went on
Dr. Pringle, "with this talk of rell-
glon being merely the 'opiate ot the
workers'.    It's no such thing.
"Right back through history to
the dawn ef creation, man haa
been aeeklng for aomethlng finer,
something bsttsr than himself,
and religion la simply an attempt
to aatlsfy this hunger In the human heart."

Professor Spencer
Speaks Saturday
An Illustrated lecture. "The Lives
of Little Things," will be given by
Professor Geo. J. Spencer on Saturday evening at 8.15 ln Room 100
of the Arts Building, the University   of  British   Columbia.
The address Is given under the
auspices of the Vancouver Institute,
and the chair will be taken by the
President,   Mr.   John   Ridington.
The editor oi
lleves that a fair number of students who go to the "talkie*" are
annoyed   when   the   programme
proves deadly.   For that reaaon
theae  random  notes  are offered
as a guide to some of the recent
releases by one who has, In self-
defence,    formed    the   habit    of
knowing their merits in advance.
Among the pieces to be shunned
are    The    Bride    Wore    Red,    the
latest   offence  of   Joan   Crawford;
Breakfast   for  Two,  in  which   another feeble actress, Barbara Stanwyck, gives her usual performance;
the   latest  edition   of  the  pathetic
Madam' X,   and   Ebb  Tide,   a   sea-
story  by   Stevenson,  in which  the
continental  actor,  Oscar  Homolka,
is wasted, along with Barry Fitzgerald  of the  Abbey  Players.   To
this inept company belongs Hurricane, "a stupendous tale of storm
and   stress,"   in   which   two   lesser
people Jon Hall  and  Dorothy  La-
mour, clad in scant sarongs, struggle with the elements,
The comedies of the moment are
numerous and aomewhat lacking in
distinction. Imitations of My Man
Godfrey and The Thin Man persist with the innovation of an athlete leading lady throwing her unhappy vis-a-vis about the stage.
Examples of this type, which might
well be dubbed "the rough-house
school of drama," are Nothing
Sacred, with Lombard and March,
and The Stand-in with Leslie
Howard. A comedy on a somewhat
higher plane ia David Oarrlck, a
costume play in which Brian
Aherne, with comely ease, portrays
the great Drury Lane showman. In
this story of backstage life he ia
assisted by Edward Everett Horton
and Olivia de Haviland. Possibly
the best of the polite comedies is
the former London and New York
stage success, Tovarlch. In this
intelligent play, ,the two titled Russian refugees are played by Charles
Boyer and Claudette Colbert.
Two of the outstanding plays of
the moment are Victoria the
Great and Conquest. Both of
these must be seen. The flrst is an
English picture of taste depicting
the domestic life of the great
Queen, with Anna Neagle doing
sensitive work in the title role. The
handsome German actor, Anton
Walbrook, is Prince Albert. Conquest is Hollywood's version of
the love affair between Napoleon
and the Countess Walewska. Most
of the critics comment on the fact
that, for once, Greta Garbo is not
as impressive as the man playing
opposite her. Charles Boyer gives
very convincing study of the
"Little Corporal," giving the picture its unity of impression.
All England is stirred by the best
release in many months. It is entitled Edge of the World, and
does for the Scotch folk of the
Shetland Isles what Man of Aran
did for those living off the west
coast of Ireland. We shall probably wait some time for this picture in Vancouver.       —F.G.C.W.

to the credit of the Senior A hoop-
ettea when they tackled the league*
leading Spenoer aquad Monday, snd

Cunninghams took thsm Wednesday, 21-16.
The fast paaalng attack of the

After jumping off to * 0-8 land

6-11 st half time. The remainder
of the game was a ding-dong affair
with the store girls outseoring

mediocre ball.

Ryerson    grabbed    a    one-point
lead in the opening minutes of the
flrst  frame, but  the Thunderbirda
soon got down to business forging
ahead to lead at the breather 16-8.
In the second period, the Blue
and Gold squad really turned on
the heat. Passing over, under,
and around the befuddled Churchmen, the students put on a display of basketball that hasn't
been seen since last year'a playoffs, piling up a 29-16 lead with
three minutes to go. At this point
the shock troops were sent in,
and, catching the enthusiasm of
their team mates, added another
four markera to the score before
the final blaat.
"Hunk" Henderson, just off the
sick list, and "Joe" Pringle, turned
in a fine performance, slowing the
Ryerson offense down to a walk.

Discipline Committee chairman
John Bird closed Monday evening's
Students' Council meeting by appealing to members of the committee present to "do their duty at
the Arts-Aggie Ball."
Bird's three essaya would keep
bim from the affair, he stated, but
he asked other Discipline Commit'
tee   members   to   "be   active."
Intra-mural baaketball reached
the final stage on Wednesday noon
when the strong Science '38 squad
advanced to meet Science '40 over
a stubborn lot of freshmen of the
Arts '41 class. Led by Barney Boe
and Pat Love, the more experienced Sciencemen took a close game
by a 29-26 score.
The contest was a full-length
game under the watchful eyes of
Referees    George    Pringle    and

Artsmen,  but  could   not   match

The  battle of the  Sclencemen
gets  under  way  at  12:13  today
when the strong Science '38 aquad
advances   to   meet    the    favored
Science   '40   aggregation   In   the
final  of   the  hard-fought    aeries
for Intra-mural supremacy. Both
teams  have  powerful  lineups to
put on the floor and a full-length
game will be played with a regulation scorekeeper and timekeeper keeping tab on the antics of
the  rival   Sclencemen.
If  the  boys   of  the  class   of   '40
come   through   with   the    expected
victory, intra-mural basketball will
be  over  for this  season  with   Sci
ence '40 as the undisputed champs.
But if the lads of '38 come up with
a triumph the contest won't be settled until next Wednesday when
the same two teams will hook up
in a return match. Both squads are
sure of a victory today, ao drop
around to the gym at noon and
watch some high class hoop tossing.
Jack Ross leads the class of '40
into action and this smooth melon-
tosser is just one big headache to
the opposition. When he is backed
up by such stalwarts as Angle Pro-
vanzano and Stan Roberts it looks
bad for the boys of '38.
But Barney Boe and company
will take a lot of persuasion before
coming out on the short end of any
score and with Boe and Love in
there popping goals for the class
of '38, it looks like a battle to the
death and then some.
Although lt ls doubtful whether
Fiorillo and Leong will be ln the
lineup on Saturday, as they are
both still suffering from leg injuries, Varsity senior roundballers have
high hopes of mounting another
rung in the league ladder at the
expense of Maccabees at Cambie
Street Grounds.
