Lust For Power Claimed
Major Cause Of Unrest
Power of Stopping War Lies With Masses,
Says Zimmern
An insatiable lust for power is the major cause of political
ferment in Europe.
This was the keynote of the final address delivered by Dr.
A. E. Zimmern, noted authority on international relations,
Monday evening. Dr. L. S. Klinck acted as chairman and Dr.
W. N. Sage of the Department of History introduced the visitor.
According to the speaker, the Great War was not caused
by commercial maladjustment but by an intense national rivalry for power. A desire for equality and glory is the inspiration of all forms of militarism and until the people of the world
realize that the doctrine of power-politics is outdated permanent
peace cannot be assured.
Boycott by Masses $
Dr. Zimmern believes that the matter of peace and war would lie largely in the hands of the masses if the
powers of economic boycott could
be effectively applted. He stated
that the Kellogg Pact was of greater
force in preserving peace than the
League of Nations since the latter's
failure in dealing with the Far-Eastern crisis. The materials necessary
in the manufacture have to be imported from many countries. If war
threatened a simple consultation
among the nations could quickly mobilize world opinion against the aggressor — then an economic boycott
would follow and lengthy war would
be impossible.
Gravity of Position
The speaker admitted that the present European situation is grave. Germany has threatened to arm unless
granted the privilege of maintaining
a standing army—in fact she is rearming at the present moment. Bri-
ain is acknowledged to be a more important power than in pre-war days
since it has been conclusively demonstrated that an efficient navy can
defeat a continental army by simply
cutting off supplies. However, Brit-

Letters Club Is
Told Of Pictorial
Art WW.Blake
Miss Lehman Reviews Career
Of Famous Poet
Abandoning the pen for the brush,
the Letters' Club spent an evening
on Tuesday with "The Drawings of
William Blake." Elspeth Lehman was
the speaker and Dean M. L. Bollert
the hostess.
Miss Lehman was a sympathetic interpreter of the 18th century visionary who belongs to no age, yet she
did not minimise the obscurity which
makes his paths an untrodden wilderness to the ordinary reader.
Blake and Religion
"To the world at large," she said,
"Blake is probably known as the
writer of 'Little Lamb, who made
thee?' and 'Tiger, tiger burning
bright,' or of a numbsr of prophetic
books which only the very learned
have a desire to read. To some he is
known as an engraver whose living
consisted in commissions from book
publishers or frknds for the engraving of his own or someone else's designs, and by some he is even dismissed merely as a religious fanatic.
As a Lyric Poet
To only a very few is he known as
a lyric poet who illustrated and published two of his volumes by his own
method of illuminated printing, and
a designer and painter whose strange,
powerful, brilliant work fairly glows
through the drabness of 18th century
literature and art like a phosphorescent gleam on the water at night.
Nor until contemporary scholarship
interested itself in his writings was
he recognized as a mystic who evolved from what he believed his Divine
messages a consistent symbolical system to communicate and interpret
his visions to others."
Certainly th« club, even if it did
not feel like attempting Blake's religious riddles, was stimulated by
this meeting to appreciation of him
as an artist—an artist strangely modern yet medieval, strangely beautiful
yet grotesque, and strangely meaningful yet obscure.
West Kootenay
Alumni Meet

Hitler And The
Nazi Revolution
Soward*s Topic
"Hitler, and the Nazi Revolution,"
will be the subject of an address to
be given by Professor F. H. Soward,
of the department of History, when
he speaks before a meeting of the
Vancouver Institute to be held on
Saturday evening, Nov. 18, at 8:15
The onward sweep to power of the
Nazi movement in Germany has been
the most significant feature of national and international politics in
Europe during the past two years.
On Sunday last, forty million German electors went to the polls and
confirmed Adolf Hitler in his position as supreme dictator ot Germany.
Because of the very general interest
in the development of internal and
external policies of Germany, it is expected that the public and student
body alike will be well represented
at what promises to be a very outstanding lecture by Professor Soward.
"For several hundred years sea serpents have been reported. I have an
open mind on the subject, but, while
I realize that it is rather hard to ask
that the creature be shown, I would
like to see a photograph." Thus Dr.
M. Y. Williams, Professor of Palaeontology and Stratigraphy, disposed of
the question of the authenticity of the
"Cadborosaurus" posed by an astute
student at the close of the Meeting of
tho Royal Astronomical Society, Tuesday evening, November 14, at 8 o'clock.
Two Billion Years
Dr. Williams' address to the society
concerned the "Building of the Earth,"
from the beginning of geological time
to the present era. He stated that the
oldest rocks on the earth to-day are
probably two billion years old, their
age being determined by evidence
which physicists have discovered ln
the study of radio-activity.
"The grooves on a billiard ball are
greater proportionally than the mountains and the deeps of this earth." This
statement introduced Dr. Williams'
discussion of mountain ranges, which
he said, assume tremendous importance in the study of geology because
of the wealth of Information that geologists can get from them. Continuing
he noted that the great mountain
ranges were formed at the terminations of the great geologic eras, the

Christmas Play
Staff Organized
The Players' Club has organized
for the Christmas plays. Almost every
member has been assigned some place
on the huge staff that will handle
next week's three productions, and
they have their president's word for
it that they are more important than
the actors.
Greater efficiency has been sought
this year by dividing the work among
three main officials, stage manager,
wardrobe mistress, and house manager. These are, respectively,. Tommy
Lea, Margaret Stewart and Margaret
Directly under the stage manager
are the stage and electrical crew consisting of the technical members:
Fred Bolton, Lome Ginther, Don
Ingham, Yukio Takahashi, Robert
Thompson, Lyle Stewart, Sam Smith,
Lyall Vine, Alan Walsh, Pat Larsen,
and Fred Buller.
Also under the stage manager are
the property committees, of which
Dorothy Fowler is general convener.
There are sub-committees for each
play, constituted as follows: Pie and
the Tart — Alice Daniels, convener,
Ethelyne Chandler and Harold Lando; El Cristo—Mary McGeer, convener, Vivian Lexier; Punch and Go —
Olive Norgrove, convener, Constance

Scholarships In
Art Considered
"We are seriously contemplating a
scheme of scholarships in which
graduates of Canadian Universities
who are interested in Art may be
selected, sent t« the Canadian National Art Gallery for seven months
where their fitness may be tested,
and finally go to London University
for a year's Post Graduate work on
the History of Art," declared Professor W. G. Constable, Director of the
Courtauld Art Institute of London,
England, and former assistant director of the National Art Gallery of
England when he addressed an open
meeting of the Art Club in Arts 100
on Tuesday last, on the subject of
"Art and the University."
Loans Exhibits
In introducing the speaker of the
afternoon, President L. S. Klinck
said that the benefits of the Ottawa
National Gallery are being extended
throughout all Canada both by means
of lectures and loans of exhibits. He
added that great praise is due to the
assistant director of that institution
for arranging this splendid series of
lectures and that he was pleased to
see the outlying centres brought into
contact with the capital of Canada.
"The University should not tend to
become a vocational school; rather,
it should become an institution that
gives a liberal eduation and fits people for 'life.' Thc University should
help its students to understand and
appreciate Art."

Rehearsals Progress
Amid Feverish Activity
Local V.C.U. Enthusiastic
About Last Conferrence
Five cars carried the U.B.C. representative of the V. C. U. to the
Washington-B.C. conference at Lake
Sammanish, Wash., last week-end.
The program included a luncheon, a
talk by Mrs. Gloucester, a ping pong
tournament in which B. C. was de-
feared, a U.B.C. skit, a talk by a
missionary from China, a discussion
of the problems of youth, and morning worship conducted by the Rev.
Mr. Gloucester. The conference was
concluded by a vesper service.
Every member of the Players' Club
has a job these days, and the green
room, stage and costume room are
scenes of feverish activity as Christmas play preparations swing into Ihe
last week.
The stage is a bewildering uirnioil
that only an actor could peneti.t.,
Rehearsals go on to the accompaniment of hammering and sawing, actors shout to make themselves heard,
and directors curse—yet no one makes
a move to stop the noise.
That is because it represents the
most vital part of the production.
When the club undertook to build its
own sets this year it knew it was
taking a man-sized mouthful. It has
proved all of that. But it's being

greater eye to artistic effect than is
usual at Christmas. Tommv Lea
and his boys have ideas, and they
have the enthusiasm and the persistence to keep on trying till somehow
they make them work.
They've learned an unbelievable
lot, but they>e horribly ignorant
still. They don't know how to mix
colours, they dont' know how to put
how to make antique furniture -but
they do it!
They just try and try till they do
it. And what things they do! They
take a few pieces of old canvas and
build you medieval Paris. They take
scrap lumber and make you a Mexican altar. They turn a tree into a
woman before your very eyes.
It's hard work, desperately hard.
But they take a pride in it that they
never felt in the old days of ready-
made flats and conventional lighting. They are creators now, and feel
the passionate zeal of creators.
That's why Dr. C. D. B. Duff, art
director, may be seen every night
working with the gang in his shirtsleeves. Thats why they all work
and work, missing lectures and even
meals. That's why they have esprit
de corps. That's why they're an inspiration to the rest of the club.
Two half-frozen students from the
University of Stanford made their
appearance on the Campus complaining bitterly about the weather. Although this is nothing new to us,
both Rollin Woodbury and Bob
Grantier felt the loss of the sunny
climes where they have been enjoying unusually hot weather.
"We like your co-eds," said Bob
in an interview with a Ubyssey reporter, "and I can quite confidently
say that they are of a higher standard than those at the U. of Washington. Of course, we cannot commit
ourselves with regard to the Stanford co-eds but I think we can safely
say that they compare favorably."
The debaters were whisked away
from the bus in New Westminster by
local representatives and had only
been on the Campus an hour when
interviewed. How.ver, in that short
time they had time to make a tour of
inspection. "I think your Campus has
an ideal setting," remarked Rollin
Woodbury, captain of the team, "and
although the type of architecture is
different to that at Stanford, I think
I prefer your buildings. We have our
buildings in yellow sandstone with
red tile roofs and they are of a Spanish style, but I like the Gothic style
you have here, especially the Library."
Debating at Stanford University
counts from six to eight units towards the B.A. degree. Rollin Woodbury will graduate this year but Bob
Grantier has another four years to

Research Work
To Save World
Science Must Cure Depression,
Says Dr. Clark
"The present depression is caused
as much by the inability of the world
to accept new scientific knowledge
as by its failure economically," Dr.
R.H. Clark declared at the open meeting of the Chemical Society on Wednesday.
Opening his remarks with a short
outline of the advance of organic
and inorganic chemistry in the last
century, Dr. Clark said, "Undreamed
of progress lies before the world
through scientific research and application." He told of the great field
of knowledge that has been gained
on the subejet of synthetic materials
and emphasized the importance of
artificially formed substances. "For
example," he said, "rubber, gasoline
and silk, which are so important to
present day civilization, can be produced synthetically at almost normal
prices. In such possibilities are the
hopes of a plentiful future based."
Future of Cellophane
"Commercially, chemistry is in its
infancy," he went on. "The, scope for
producing synthetic substances has
hardly been touched. Take, for example, cellophane; already new ways
of weaving it into fabrics have been
devised. Vinylite, which is hard
opaque or transparent material, has
been used to build a whole house at
the Chicago World's Fair; doors,
walls, furniture, windows."
•   Agriculture
"In agriculture, too, chemistry
promises vast Improvements. If one
out of every ten acres were cultivated scientifically, the remainder
could be allowed to lie fallow. The
newly discovered improvements are
there to be used."
Dr. Clark then said that of the
twelve million farmers now existing,
only two million would be needed.

Oregon State's Lon Stiner and Varsity's Doc Burke are
two fine examples of coaches that can step in and produce winning teams without advance ballyhoo. Stiner hit the front pages
of the football world two weeks ago when his green crew held
U. S. C. Trojans to a scoreless tie.
Tomorrow at 2:30 Doc Burke's men will take on V. A. C.
at Athletic Park and if they show the same fight that they did
against those Golden Bears, it will be just too bad for Norm

This will be the first time that thc
Blue and Gold squad has played this
team this year. The Westminster
squad is living up to the Royal City
basketball traditions and they are a
hard training, hard fighting bunch of
Senior A neophytes. Thc team is composed mostly of old Highway Fur
players, provincial Intermediate champions, who are playing in the Senior
league for the first time under the
tutelage of Doug. Fraser, the old Adanac star.
Varsity Eager
The local boys are ready for anything that comes, after their victory
over the Adanacs last Saturday. This
last game they proved their supremacy
over their greatest rival for the league
leadership and they are going to make
sure of victory by winning both games
this weekend.
Prlngle Out
The Varsity team may be without
thc services of George Pringle, one
of their lanky centres, in these next
two games. George has been having
some trouble with a sore knee for the
last week. However, there are still
nine good men left that ought to be
able to handle any situation that is
likely to arise.
Fast Gaines
Both of the games are going to be
fast and packed full of thrills. Neither
team has been slowed up from age
and the games will be tests of endurance for all the players. Varsity has
the advantage of experience in Senior A circles but many of her players
are just as new to big league ball as
the McKenzie-Fraser aggregation. The
games are going to be won on basketball skill and should be as fine exhibitions as will be seen this year.

Last Game Cancelled
The Varsity intermediate team did

series. However, they were not idle
last week-end as they held a stuf

Strong Team
The last time the students played
they tied last year's champions—Ex-

Captain Ellis lequests that every
man on the line-up who for some
reason cannot play, would inform him

The team line-up is as follows: G.

College, with a score 12-0!
Score One Point
In the first half the College aggregation was able to score only one
point, on a rouge, although they
pressed steadily. After the interval,
by a series of line plunges by Wright
and Reynolds, they finally pushed
over a touch which went unconverted.
Tlie play shifted back and forth in
mid-field with Varsity not making any
serious threats on the college goal-
line. Mclntyre's punting relieved the
hard-pressed line in many tight spots.
The third quarter went without score.
Lose Pass
In the last period the play was much
the same, except that Reynolds of the
College intercepted a forward pass attempted by Vrooman and eluded the
whole Varsity team to run 30 yards
for a touch which was converted by
Wright. Tlie game soon ended with
the final score 12-0 for Vancouver

Confident that they can play better
rugby than the English Rugby Club,
the Soccer Club has challenged that
organization to a game, and the English Rugy team, confident that they
can show the soccer boys how soccer
should be played, has accepted. The
result will be the battle of the cen-
ury, a match that should dwarf the
English Cup Tie, the Pasadena Rose

This unique contest will be played

Have You a Name
For Our Teams?
Some people have not as yet realized that the article in last week's
Ubyssey suggesting the choosing of
a name for our University teams was
meant in all seriousness. There have
been to date only a few names submitted, some intended for serious consideration, some jocular.
As was stated in the previous article
on this subject, we are about the only
University which sends its athletic
teams on the playing field unnamed.
It is the intention of the sport page
of the Ubyssey to foster a competition which will result in a suitable
name for our athletic teams.
Any suggestions which you have
to offer if they are made seriously,
will be welcome. It would be best to
choose some title that would be in
keeping with the history or geographical location of our University. An
example of what might be suitable
for a name is the University of B. C.
Indians. This name is not being submitted as the sport page's choice but
merely to indicate what type of title
is wanted.
Address all communications in regard to this competition to the Sports
Editor. Further particulars and a ballot giving the students an opportunity
to record their choice In this matter
will appear in a later issue.
Tom Graham is a husky Une star and captain of the Ottawa
Rough Riders. He is one of the three outstanding U. S. college
boys who are now playing for the capital city aggregation.
It appears that the powers "what
be" of the Vancouver and District
League have granted Varsity Senior
Soccermen a bye this Saturday. However, in the interests of experience,
condition, and suchlike ^athletic mysteries the Students have arranged a
splendid practice game.
At Renfrew
The encounter will take place at
Renfrew Park where St. Andrews
will supply the opposition. This team,
variously termed "the Saints", and
"the Spiders," is one of the strongest
in the Pacific Coast loop, in which
the teams are said to play n good
brand of the round-ball game. It
boasts some of the outstanding stars
in local circles r.nd has been in the
front rank of B. C. football since
'way back when.
Same Team
The Collegians will present thc
same team that showed such p raise-
worthy form last week. Stan Greenwood will be in goal; Millar McGill
and Jock Waugh at full-back; Russ
Stewart, Bill Wolfe, and Ernie Costain at half-back; Hughie Smith. Paul
Kozoolin Cc), Jack Martin, Archie
McDougal, and Dave Todd, on thc
attack. T. Louie will be in reserve.
While the Senior Squad will be
thus amusing itself, the Juniors will
engage in a Junior Alliance struggle
with Marpole Athletic.
The Suburbanites have a strong
team which defeated the young collegians by a 2-0 score in an earlier
encounter. But the Blue and Gold
babies are in a fighting mood these
days, and will not be beaten until
tha  final  whistle.
The game will take place on the

Have you ever dreamed of lying
on a sandy beach with the breakers
booming at your feet and the soft
Pacific breezes murmuring in the
palms ancl bringing to you the caressing sound from Hawaiian guitars?
Have you ever dreamed of sailing
the globe round in a masted sailing
ship that sails like a bird before the
breeze? Then have you sighed when
you realized that such was not for
you. that you were doomed to be
the "armchair" traveller?
Miss Smith, of the Library reference department, realized that people
feel like this, perhaps she even feels
that way herself. For the fireside adventures of the University she has
collected this week a varied group of
books on view points of travel.
Among them we find tales that vary
in their location from the frozen
Arctic to the South Seas. For those
interested in the Land of the Hula
are: "Hawaii—Past and Present," by
William R. Castle; "Faery Lands of
the South Seas," Hall and Nordhoff.
E. V. Lucas contributes with "A
Wanderer in Venice" and "A Wanderer in London." From the pen of
George Gissing conies "By the Ionian Sea."' Canada is represented by
"A Canadian Panorama", by Yvonna
Fitzroy and "The Old North Trail,"
by Walter McClintock which includes
the legends and religion of the
Blackfeet Indians.
Each week Miss Smith collects the
books on one particular subject that
she thinks will bo of interest to the
students. These collections will be
found on the reference desk.
Last week translations were featured in order that interested readers
might enjoy the literary treasure^ of
tongues other than their own. As a
few of these ire still at the desk
any who have not already seen them
may have the opportunity to do so.
*   »   *
From the lending desk comes the
complaint that a great deal of confusion and unnecessary labour is
caused by students taking books
from the stacks and leaving them in
the carrels without reporting them at
the desk. At present over one hundred books hava been mislaid in this
way. Have a lock in your carrel and
give someone else an opportunity to
use that book.
Professor Angus will speak on
"White Paper"given to India as a «re-
form. The address will be given at the

Apple Problems
Are Considered
Speaking before the Commerce Club
on Wednesday, Dean Clement of the
Faculty of Agriculture outlined some
of the problems of the Okanagan
"It will probably be necessary to
introduce legislative measures before
a fair price for the growers' apples
can be guaranteed," stated Dr. Clement. He said that the growersTaci
two outlets for their products. The
first of these was the export trade.
In the year 19324933 the countries
taking the bulk of the exported apples were the United Kingdom, New
Zealand, China, Egypt, Argentina,
Brazil, South Africa, Norway, Sweden,
Denmark, Java, France, Palestine,
Newfoundland, the West Indies, and
the United States. In the case of
the United Kingdom, the largest customer, prices had gone down owing
to the currency situation.
The other outlet was Eastern Canada and the Prairies. In this instance
prices had been forced down. The,
creation of a buyers' market had
been one cause, the prices being
forced down to a level which left
the growers no profit.
In some cases the growers had
forced down prices themselves, selling at a price lower than was offered by the buyers in order to have
their apples cleared at once.
Dr. Clement explained that the buyers had told the growers that they
would be able to sell their apples
only if a constant price were maintained. In 1923 the Associated
Growers had been able to act as a
sgibllizlng body for the price of apples, having control of 85 percent of
the output. Lately, however, this
had failed to 40 percent and the body
was no longer able to stabilize the
price. The recent "cent a pound"
campaign was an attempt to restore
this control.
Players' Prexy
"Caddy" Fish Story
Says Dr. Williams
(Continued from Page 1)
Rocky  Mountain chain appearing at
the close of the Mesozoic Era.
Reptilian Life
Regarding reptilian life ,the speaker said that its inception dates from
some time in the Paleozoic period
when certain salamanders and lung-
fish moved from the sea into the
swamps, but it was not until the Mesozoic age that the first mammals appeared. Dinosauri, true reptiles, before this time were very prevalent
ir. B.C. and Alberta. Dr. Roy Chapman Andrew's discovery of the
winged Dinosaur eggs in the Gobi
Desert has proven to be the most
important discovery in this field in
the last fifty years.
As a result of the recent earthquake
epidemics, geologists have propounded
a new theory concerning the composition of the centre of the earth. Seismic waves behave in such a way'as to
show that the earth's centre cannot
be molten. However it is possible
that it is in a state inconceivable to
science, because of the enormous pressure encountered at that depth.
Vestiges of Ice Age
"The world to-day is emerging from
an ice age several vestiges of which
are the polar caps and the snow prevalent in the winter time,"* the speaker continued. In correcting several
fallacies Dr. Williams said that there
is no reason to believe that tile axis
of the earth has ever been perpendicular to its orbit, nor have we reason to believe that the world is entering another ice age, the prime cause
of which is the raising of the level
of the land masses.
Slides of very impressive ancl gigantic forms of prehistoric animals were
shown by the speaker toward the conclusion of the lecture. According to
the pictures near relatives of "Caddy"
were to be seen in great profusion in
the days of Brontosaurl and Tyrran-
osauri Reges.
Dr. Williams pointed out, later on,
that the moral of geological history
is that the higher forms were enabled
to make progress, aided by the destruction of the lesser forms who were
not able to provide for themselves.
"Tlie world by this token," he said,
''should regard the present economic
depression as an evil with several redeeming features."
Nancy Symes, under whose direction
the Players' Club is attempting to
carry out several new ideas this year.
Stage technique especially is being
developed more widely than ever before in the history of the Club. Thc

Mjss Symes is responsible for thc recognition of these worthy efforts by
the student body.
Stud-ants' Council decided on Monday night to approach Faculty Council in an endeavor to obtain an increase in the number of Alma Mater
meetings which nay call for cancellation of lectures. The Faculty wishe.i
to limit these to two, one of which

Max Stewart, president of men's

S. C. M.
"Religion is a natural human impulse," was the opinion expressed by
Rev. Bruce Gray at the S.C.M. noon
hour lecture Wednesday. Mr. Gray
was discussing "Why Religion and
the Indifference of Youth."
Religion in the past has given social position but this is not so now
except to a very limited extent. Religion justifies itself by the contentment and happy feeling it gives rather than by social distinction.
The war and the part the church
played in sending' men and commending their actions is what has made
youth most indifferent. Religion in
such times seems to die but it opens
new vistas again and becomes a more
dominant reality than ever.
The meeting closed with an open
discussion on whether youth should
refuse to fight in the case of war.

Manchurian Question
Discussed At I. R. C.
The International Relations Club
heard two reports on the Manchurian
question Wednesday night when it
met at the home of Mrs. N. Black.
Grace Thrower presented the Russian view: a conciliatory policy towards Japan now, though she is prepared to fight for what she believes
her economic life depends on. She
does not fear Japan and is willing
to fight. Miss Thrower characterized Russo-Sino relations as complicated but friendly. Russia is willing
to sacrifice to what she feels is a
reasonable extent.
The cause for international friction between Russia and Japan, Miss
Clotworthy pointed out, can be belter understood after a sketch of China's early history. Russia took advantage of the Chinese revolution to
get power in the north; China and
Japan came to blows in Marchuria
because China was unable to maintain order. It was felt that Communism may help China in the present crisis.
The papers were followed by a
very lively discussion of the far-
eastern situation.
Canadian Paintings

The exhibition haa been made possible by the kind permission ot the
Art Gallery and the Faculty Association.

was inaugurated in January, 1930,
being one of many similar clubs in
universities throughout the world. It
was formed under the auspices of
the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, which endowment
sends it ten books a year, and current bulletins on all aspects of international events. Bulletins are in the
magazine room of the library, available to members for one week, to
others for two hours. Meetings are
fortnightly, in the evening, with
speakers, papers, or discussions of
important international problems, and

Empire that offered a similar course.
"Even now," he said, "only the
Universities of Edinburgh and London are offering this subject."
He quoted Professor Morely of
Princeton University to show that
the History of Art is even more worthy of a place on the curriculum
than other histories. Prof. Morely
said: "If you intend to study history, study the history, of Art because it entails the study of many
histories." »
Many Branches of Art
In studying the history of Art, he
explained that one learns something
about practically all the visible arts:
study of architecture, crafts, style,
and the influence of religion, and
period customs on style.
Art offers the *best documents of
history. As examples of this, he cited
the great English Cathedrals, built
hundreds of years ago and still in
use today.
"Which is the more important
point," the speaked asked,, "the fact
that a certain period of history was
a Catholic period, or the effect of
that Catholicism on the architecture
of the day?"
"London is the richest city in the
world from the artist's point of
view. This city, with its gems of
architecture; such as, St. Martin's-
in-the-Fields and St. Paul's Cathedral and with its unsurpassed eight
and one-half miles of Art Galleries
and Musuems, forms the best centre
of study in the world for Art."

A correspondent takes issue with the Ubyssey on the question of treatment of Oriental
minorities in British Columbia. His arguments
do not altogether hold water.
Because Japan is discriminatory in her
treatment towards foreigners in Japan is no
excuse forus to use the same tactics in British
Columbia. To use Japanese conduct as an example is self-condemnatory.
'The basic facts remain the same. As long as
the Orientals are discriminated against they will
remain an indissoluble unit. If they are given
equal privileges however, they will come to
lose the ties that hold them to the land of their
fathers. We are not suggesting intermarriage
as a remedy, but we do suggest that Orientals
can become valuable Canadian members of the
business and social community.
Our correspondent suggests that the Orientals return to their homeland. Such a solution
of the question is obviously impossible from
every angle. Have we any right to demand that
native-born citizens be exiled to a foreign
country merely because of the pigments of
their skin?
We are not suggesting that the doors be
thrown open to further Oriental immigration.
Such a condition would likely only aggravate
the situation. Nevertheless there are thousands
of Oriental citizens in this province who are
deprived of the franchise and discriminated
against in their choice of an occupation.
These citizens are in the country to stay.
There is no doubt about it. Are we to have their
loyalty and friendship, or are they to be a dissatisfied and fractious minority The solution
is really very simple. Give them a chance to
raise their standard of living. Open the legal
profession to them. Give them equal opportunities.
In a generation or two the Orientals will be
valuable citizens willing and ready to co-operate. As their living standards rise the birth-rate
will fall. The way things stand today the whites
may soon be engulfed by force of numbers. Let
us encourage quality and not quantity in our
Oriental citizens.
We are taking the liberty to reprint a recent editorial from the Vancouver News-
Herald. It expresses an appreciation of the
work of the University professors, which has
unfortunately been generally lacking among
Vancouver residents. They too often fail to
realize the very valuable extra-mural work
being done by the faculty. The Ubyssey wishes
to concur with the sentiments expressed in the
morning paper.
"Location of a university in this city gives
abundant opportunity for its professors to direct public attention to questions beyond the
scope of academic thought.
"Generally speaking, especially in the history, economics and agricultural fields, the
faculty is more than doing its share by the comT
munity where it is placed geographically.
"Public opinion has turned to economics in
a way never before known, as shown in demand for textbooks at the libraries, and the
remarkable interest shown in the subject during the recent provincial election. People who
formerly were indifferent now want to know
the why and the wherefore of things, as is
shown by an attedance of 300 at one of the
classes of a professor of the faculty weekly in
a city school.
"So the professors of economics here, without exception, are the class of men above all
others in demand for luncheon and dinner
speaking in Vancouver and district at this time.
Fortunately the University has in the department men of exceptional ability and good judg-1
ment, and the public of Vancouver owes to

THE AGE" insinuated the Ubyssey loudly not
so long ago. ^Maybe that's true, but here's another angle. The age is also the curse of the
newspaper. Once a world-weary journalist
remarked, "My whole life has been spent getting the names of people in the paper that
wanted to stay out, and keeping out people
that wanted their names in."
Did you ever notice the quantities of people
who claim they've been misquoted? Turn-
quotes they're scathingly called by the profession. Sometimes they have been misquoted,
but more often they've said something and
(Changed their minds, if any.
The press acts as a medium of communication between a lot of temperamental actors,
and a finicky public. The public misunderstands a quotation, the actor disclaims the responsibility, and the press is left holding the
A very funny little scandal occurred to
Noel Coward once, in such a fracas. Mr. Coward happened to be crossing the English Channel from England to Paris. A reporter stopped
to interview him.
"And are you crossing on a British ship,
Mr. Coward?" asked the journalist.
"No," said Mr. Coward with finality. "I'm
going in a French boat, where they don't have
any silly nonsense about women and children
It looked like a fast one to the newsgath-
erer, who duly reported it. Immediately England was deluged with editorials about the
vapidness of the modern youth, which Mr.
Coward presumably represented.
People lpve to make sweeping statements
to the press, sometimes for publicity purposes,
and sometimes for crusading purposes. Five
years ago, George "Jean Nathan said, "In five
years the talking pictures will no longer exist." And no one remembers it five years later.
On Jan. 18, 1931, Ed Wynn was interviewed
by the Associated Press, and the interview
given wide publicity. The second paragraph
reads: »
"The radio is nothing but an annoyance to
him most of the time 'because the advertisers
dictate what you've got to put on your program.' "
And later: "About this radio business. I've
had $200,000 in offers right in this dressing
room in the last few months for outside appearances, but I turn 'em all down." It was a pretty
good wrestling match that the Perfect Fool
put on with his bread and butter.
And here is the most enigmatical clipping
we have: (A.P. again, on Oct. 3, 1931.) Rudy
Vallee has an explanation for a baby carriage
he bought while his bride, the former Fay
Webb, was visiting relatives in California. "Oh,
that," he said "I needed a baby buggy to
wheel my moving picture camera around." It
doesn't make sense.
Pity the journalist! Mr. George Bernard

Editor, Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Although there has been considerable talk on the campus lately on
the subject of Pacifism and World
Peace, the students as a whole have
not recognized any responsibility in
the matter. World peace will not
come automatically, but only as a
result of organized effort, since the
forces desiring war are extremely
powerful and well organized. To
quote from a sermon of the Rev. G.
G. Hacker, "It is not enough to say
'We would rather die than take part
in a war.' If World Peace is to be
achieved, we must be dynamically
active in the cause of peace, spreading peace propaganda into all parts
of the world as an antidote for the
war propaganda disseminated by the
armaments companies and other interested parties."
In my opinion, University students
have a definite place in the fight for
world peace. Some of the clubs on
our campus have been turning their
attention to the question of peace,
and disarmaments, but we need a
more widespread movement throughout the entire student body. The
most efficient way to organize such
a movement would be tnrough the
cooperation of clubs already formed,
since many of them are, in their very
nature, vitally interested in peace.
I am referring to such organizations
as the Cosmopolitan Club, the I.R.C,
and the Student Christian Societies,
self-styled followers of the Prince of
Such a movement would, of course,
be a peace movement rather than a
pacifist movement, since the term
pacifist has gained a connotation
which suggests little else than a refusal to fight for king and country.
Educated people of today are faced
with a very definite choice. They
must either get together and learn
how to fight for peace, or else "leave
it to the League" and thereby follow
what Dr. Zimmern termed, "tha primrose path to the bonfire." Have our
students courage and vision or have
they that spirit of "We—can't—do—
anything—anyway . . . so —what's —
the use—of trying . . ."
Yours for dynamic peace,

Dear Sir:
Some remarks on Oriental minorities in B. C. made by the able Dr.
Zimmern in his address to U.B.C.
students on Monday last have provoked your leading editorial "Local
To quote: "Orientals are citizens of
this province. They pay taxes. They
are human beings. Their children
are being educated as Canadians.
Yet these Canadians are not given
the franchise.   Ts that justice?"
Why should Oriental minorities
have full citizenship rights in Canada? Enlightened opinion today does
not regard Oriental peoples as being
inferior to the White Race, but it is
justified in regarding them as a DIFFERENT people, with wnom the
White Race cannot reasonably hope
to achieve assimilation. Should a
young nation, like Canada, in an endeavor to achieve national unity, encourage the growth of an indissoluble unit in the community? I think
Japan thinks not. She will not allow the Japan-born children of foreigners to become Japanese citizens
even if they so desire. Thus, Japan-
born children of Canadian, American,
Chinese or Korean parentage are
barred from Japanese citizenship
even if they desire it. They are
treated as expatriates. Today Canada is following a similar policy with
regard to Oriental peoples.
The Japanese do not wish naturalized alien elements in their country
because they fear it will have an
adverse influence on national solidarity. Also, they do not wish a flood
of comparatively cheap Chinese and
Korean labour to take jobs from Japanese citizens and to remain as an
alien element in the community. If
the Yellow Race sets up barriers to
free Intercourse and assimilation
within that race, the White Race
should not be called on to try to

To give children of Oriental parentage a good education and to allow
them to return to the Orient where
they should enjoy a comparative advantage in finding employment, is to
do justice under present conditions.
This treatment of the problem is not
perfect from all points of view, but
it is the best to be hoped for.

a dozen times to get the lines clear.
I should have estimated the number
at around 3,000, One of the down
town reporters, I am told, put it at
5,000. After considerable experience
watching other sporting events (college and professional baseball—both
American and National League—American football—six years at a large
university and nine at two smaller
colleges—boxing and wrestling at the
Boston Arena and Garden and in
Vancouver, tennis in Vancouver and
at Longwood, to a much less extent
ice hockey, basketball, cricket and
lacrosse), I have reached the conclusion that for intelligent grasp of the
principles of play and reliable criticism of performance on the field
there is no group quite equal to the
ordinary soccer football crowd.
On Saturday they appeared to feel
that they had witnessed a fine display. And with reason. You know
the speed, stamina, courage, skill, accuracy, judgment, and team play necessary to cope with a good first division soccer team, the pretty individual duels for possession of the ball
combined with a continuous coordination with one's mates, the kaleidoscopic flexibility of a prearranged
order that is constantly visible and
yet constantly shifting, the ability of
a good team to make the ball do a
lot of the work. On Saturday Varsity had a defense that usuqjly
stopped plays before they got much
past mid-field. There was a powerful driving attack that began with
the first moment and was still carrying the play in on the opponent's
goal in the last moment of the game,
smooth transfer of thc ball past or
over the opponents, excellent heading, hard and accurate shooting. The
result was that a team, which had
beaten or tied Varsity for about two
years and won the Mainland Cup
last Spring was outplayed decisively,
and several thousand spectators felt
that they had seen a fine exhibition
of a tine game sportingly played.
There are two reasons for correcting the report on the attendance. One
is the testimony borne to the calibre
of football played, and the other lies
in the circumstances under which
the boys were playing at Cambie
street at all. Contrary to their usual
attitude of going on the field without any regard for the number of
spectators, they had consented at
the solicitation of the League secretary to forego their right (and their
desire) to play on their home ground
in order to help the League officials
draw as large an attendance as possible, to swell the fund for injured
players. Some will h^ interested to
know that 4his end was attained.
