Prisoners Of War
On Parade
(Editor's Note: Following Is the
fifth in a series of articles written
for the Canadian University Press
from the Canadian Capital by Alan Harvey, sports editor In 1939-40
of "The Varsity," undergraduate
newspaper of the University of
Toronto, and now attached to tho
Ottawa Bureau of the Canadian
Ottawa, Feb 17, (CUP) - Students at Canadian Universities
who are members of the Canadian
Officers/ Training Corps or Auxiliary Training Battalions recognized by the National Defense Department probably will be allowed
to carry on aa usual despite new
reserve army regulations, it Is
learned here.
One significant clause in the Defence Department's statement last
Friday night announcing the new
reserve army set-up reads:—"Service in reserve units will no longer exempt from compulsory military service men who are liable
to call under the National Resources Mobil-ation Act."
As the C.O.T.C. and other compulsory military training units organized by colleges and universities are considered broadly as
part of the reserve army, this announcement immediately raised
the question whether university
students would now be liable to
call under the National Resources
Mobilization Act.
The query was directed to Defence Headquarters, where it was
learned that the status of University students under the new regulations Is a "matter of policy"
now being worked out by the government and that an announcement clarifying the situation may
be expected shortly.
But in other Informed quarters it
was said there was little likelihood
of any change in existing arrangements between the universities
and the defence department
"I do not believe any change is
contemplated in the present setup," one military spokesman said.
"We are getting good officer material from the universities and it
would hardly seem logical to do
anything that might Interfere with
Another official belief was that
Universities would be drained of
their best men if students now
fulfilling allotted military training quotas as members of the C.
O.T.C. or equllivant units were
made liable for four months' compulsory military training and subsequently for service in uniform
within Canada or its territorial'-
waters as long as the war may last.
New rules laid down for the reserve army imply at least two
things respecting enlistments —
that the reserve itself will be constituted increasingly from older
age brackets and that more men
may be subject to call for service
under the Resources Mobilization
Voluntary enlistments in the reserve now are restricted to men
under 19 and over 35, except for
men unfit for service overseas or
exempt from active service because they are key workers In
war industry.
Thus as things stand now, the
only way a man between 26 and
35 can obtain a uniform is by enlisting for active service. The reserve won't take him and he's too
old to be called under the Resources Mobilization Act as it is
applied now.
The army has made it plain that
it will welcome men in these age
groups for active service. There
have been hints, toe, that the call-
up age for compulsory service in
Canada may be extended to include these age categories.
John Carson has been acclaimed
as President of the Men's Undergraduate Society.
Running for Council Secretary
are five girls: Evelyn "Buddy"
Graham, Luella Mannix, Shirley
MacDonald, Barbara Newman,

Shoe Shine
• A VERY successful business
was done  by  the  shoe-shine
boys, Sandy Hay and Elliot Mont-
ador, on Saturday morning. A
steady flow of customers passed
through the bureau up to the hour
of 11 a.m. at which time the
building superintendent interfered
on the grounds that Brock • Hall
was not the place for such activ-
After he had forced the boys to
discontinue their services to the
COTC, they went to interview
# Colonel Shrum who stated that he
thoroughly approved of the idea
and that it had long been needed.
As a result, "business as usual"
is now the slogan and they will
continue their shining buttons and
shoes In a room in the armouries.
The boys were surprised to find
that their services were requested
by several civilians who wanted
a shoe-shine. No extra charge was
made. No commissioned officers
applied for a shine though.

•   TODAY'S SPECIAL I.S.S. ISSUE of the Ubyssey ushers in a week of headline attractions, cultural, social and athletic, all directed towards the advancement of the International Student Service at U.B.C. and the raising of funds to further the philanthropic work
of the I.S.S. the world over.
The accompanying news stories publicize the many features of the week-long program lined up by the War Aid Council's I.S.S. Committee under the direction of chairmam
Ted Scott. ,The numerous general articles and pictures tell of the activities of fellow-students and I.S.S. workers in Canada and other countries. A survey of this material should
impress every student with the need of supporting the drive this week and give him the)
feeling that he is part of a truly world-wide organization.

Chinese Students Run Summer Camp
• SUMMER service projects are
now familiar to most American
students. There is practically no
campus which does not have a
student spending the summer vacation in a settlement house or at
a work camp.
Chinese students, interestingly
enough, do the same sort of thing.
In the summer of 1941, 664 students
took part in a wide variety of
community activities. There is one
marked difference between the
American and the Chinest scene
in this regard. In America, students often pay their own expenses
in summer work. In China, students are destitute, and must find
some way of keeping body and
soul together daring the vacation.
Summer projects are thus recognized by the National Student Relief Committee in China as an excellent way to give student aid
during the summer. Students are
accordingly given grants—pitifully
small, to be sure — which at least
keep them at subsistence level until college opens in the fall.
The summer projects are exceedingly varied. In Kunming, students organized and ran six free
schools, with a total enrollment
of 935. There were classes for men
and women as well as children. A
student tea room was the project
in Yuanling, with tea served gratis.
4,039 people used the place during
the two months that it was open.
Students in Kweiyang made a con
tribution to China's war effort by
rendering service to wounded
soldiers. Medical students in thLs
group did effective health an.l hygiene work among 600 students in
a large primary school. Another
group at the same center wrote
and published a manuscript of 49
pages which contained articles
about student life, student struggles in wartime, etc.
An original project was the one
at Chengku, where twenty students carried on a make-up school
for their fellows who had not
made the grade in the preceding
academic year! Publishing a wall
newspaper and working in a newspaper office were other unusual
types   of   work.      Several   dthar
groups engaged in rural service
which included health work, fellowship groups, literary classes,
day nurseries.
This kind of work is valuable
to thousands of persons In Chinese
communities. American students
are especially Interested in it because at the same time it gives
aid to well-qualified students who
are destitute because of the war.
That aid is possible because of
money raised in this country by
the World Student Service Fund,
8 West 40th Street, New York City.
The Fund gives help to student
victims of war, not only In China
but In Europe, among prisoners
of war, refugees, and internees.
Today's pep meet at noon is intended to supply the enthusiasm
which will carry the week's festivities to a successful conclusion. It
will be followed later this afternoon by a tea dance in Brock Hall
from 3:30 till 6 p.m.
The regular weekly "Self-Denial" Day will take the form of an
I.S.S. tag-day tomorrow, with all
'proceeds being earmarked for the
I.S.S. fund instead of being turned
into the general war work fund
as usual.
Thursday will feature a special
showing of films by the U.B.C.
Film Society in the Auditorium,
proceeds again for the I.S.S. In
the afternoon an International Tea,
to which a special invitation to
outsiders has been extended, will
be held in Brock Hall.
Perhaps the feature attraction of
the week is scheduled for Friday
when the, student conference to
discuss "The Student and the War"
will be held. It will be opened at
noon with an address by Professor Melvin Rader of Seattle on
"The Nature of the Present War."
Although this meeting is free to
' all students, undergraduates who
wish to attend the whole conference are urged to fill out the registration form available in the A .M.S.
office immediately.
Friday night a monster skating
party at the Forum will be staged.
(For particulars please turn to
Page 4.)
The I.S.S. Carnival-Mixer in
Brock Hall, Saturday night, which
replaces the regular semi-weekly
mixers, will wind up the week's
attractions. Besides dancing to
George Reifel's Varsity Orchestra,
students will be enticed to part
with their coins at the various
carnival boothes being arranged in
the rooms on the second floor.
(Here the Pub would like to put
in, a plug that it expects everyone
will patronize its big Bingo game
in the Phrateres room that night.)
Ballet Risque
ISS Feature
For Pepmeet
I.S.S. drive, Colonel Fifi
Brown's Ballet Risque will
be featured at the pep meet
today, noon.
Highlights of the program will
include a Cock-eyed quizz, a guest
vocal chorus, music by the Varsity
orchestra, and a drama to be presented by the Anglican College.
The Quizz prize, which has been
donated by Jantzen'a, will be modelled by Miss Defeen flyan, Admission charge is 5 cents.
Gamma Phi's,
Betas Cop Frat
inated on Friday night with,
the Inter-Fraternity Song-Feat,
Judging was done by Dean Mawdsley; Dr. and Mrs. J. A. Crumb,
and Prof. AUardyce. The results
were, In order, Beta Theta PL
Phi Delta Theta, and Pal Upsilon
in the fraternities, and Gamma
PW BetaJQrtfc Gamma, and Kappa Kappa Gamma hi the sororities,
In judging' the women, Dr.
Crumb said that they were much
Improved over last year, particularly with regard to diction and
harmony;. He suggested that fat
singing of this type, a soloist was
unnecessary, and also that a pianist was distracting.
Dean Mawdsley added to this
in her criticism of the women,
that it was a pity for the conductor to have to sing in addition to
his other duties.
Students In China Pay
Less For Board and Fees
• WHAT you pay for a pack of
cigarettes feeds a Chinese student
for a day. The price of a corsage
will pay his board at the University of Shanghai for a month.
The I.S.S. through the funds it
collects at U.B.C. and all over America this week will alleviate the
war-torn conditions prevalent in
Chinese and European, universities today.
In China, a nation of over 400
millon people, there are only 45,-
000 students who receive but little
support from the government and
are continually being bombed on
their campuses, for these students
in China and those under similar
conditions in Europe the students
at U.B.C. are asked to make a
small sacrifice.
For example a high-grade phonograph record which will bring
entertainment to more than 2000
prisoners in a European concentration camp can be bought for
only one doller. A Chinese student can be kept a month for $2.
Less than $10 will pay the fees of
an entire semester in a Chinese
college. Money is so much more
valuable   In   China   that   $1.50   a
month will care medically for each
student. Books will be purchased
and sent to Europe that will bring
new hope to weary prisoners.
These are but a few examples
of the work done by the IAS. in
widely-separated parts of the
world, a work that can be extended by the amount of contributions
during this week.
Final Plans
For Year
the rest of the year, the Hylu-
Ows last Friday appointed Ross
McLean to the War Aid Council
and decided to hold three major
social functions in the remaining
months of the 1941-42 session.
The three social functions planned are; a dance, bowling party
and banquet. It was also decided
to try to obtain a club room on
the campus, preferrably in Brock
Constable William Orchard, A.R.P. Warden for the
University area, will address the students in the Auditorium
on Wednesday, February 18th, at 12:30 p.m.
Air raid precautions taken by the University will be
described by the Warden, and the procedure to be followed
in vacating the buildings at the sounding of the air raid
alarm will be announced.
All students are requested to attend.

One Man's
Editor, the Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
• I HAVE just finished reading
your editorial in the Ubyssey
of Friday, February 13, and I
would like to further discuss the
benefits of the Arts course in war
time. You seem to feel that there
is no place for a tranquil way of
life, such as studying Arts courses,
when the rest of the world Is in
the midst of "turmoil, strife and
Of course the most Important
thing right now is the winning of
the war. And if it is necessary to
muster all available manpower for
military duty, with the exception
of men engaged in war work, or
in trainilng for war work, I say
say conscript 'em, yes all of them,
right down to the last Artsman.
But the government seems to
think that it is not necessary. In
the case of - universities special
provision has been made to permit
all students to vontinue their
studies, and we have reason to
believe this policy will be continued even if conscription ls introduced in some form or another.
In these days of propaganda and
misinformation it is impossible for
the average person to get a clear
picture of what is really going
on. Therefore a good deal of con-
fidencce must be placed in those
who govern our country, for if
anybody does know what's up,
they should. Not that they should
be above reproach or criticism,
but in vital matters such as conscription their policies should be
considered carefully. When it
comes to the maintenance of the
Arts oourse there is good backing
for the government's attitude.
After this war is over, assuming
that we win, the United Nations
are going to have a tremendous
problem on their hands, end, although a B.A. degree is no hell
for stopping bullets, it should
prove   very   useful   in   helping
will give an account of our
University's activities in the
present war, at the supper
meeting of the I.S.S. Student
Conference on Friday. Students and Faculty should
register at the A.M.S. office
by Wed. to attend this and
other interesting activities of
the conference.
• Tuesday, February 17, 1942      \
straighten out the post-war mess.
I don't believe that every Arts-
man is going to find a place as the
saviour of the nation. But the
need for trained minds, even
among the common citizens will
be great
In the past one hundred years
the world has seen a complete
change. And that change has cost
man a good deal of the security
which he formerly had. Rule by
the masses is a very new thing,
to expect complete mastery, overnight, of the complicated ways of
the world, Is to expect too much.
Mankind, however, has set out to
study the wrong of the world and
to seek means of correcting them.
I don't ever expect to see any
Utopia but I do believe that things
can, and must be improved.
Social sciences (part of your
Arts course) will play a big part
in post-war reconstruction. A good
number of past mistakes can be
avoided by a knowledge of history
(Arts again). When all the ideas
for economic reconstruction are
advanced after the war, a knowledge of economics (Arts) will be
essential in rejecting the fantastic
and accepting the sound. After the
last war important religious and
moral issues arose, a study of Philosophy will be of great help, in
preserving the peace of mind. In
fact I find it difficult to under-
stand what you mean by "Useless
So until it becomes necessary to
put every man in uniform to save
us from defeat, I feel that the Arts
Faculty has a very definite justification for Its existence.
Yours sincerely,
Constant Reader.

The Mummery     *>'«*«
• A FEW astute observers of campus politics, including myself, have recently been
appalled by the infiltration into our student
government of the Scienceman, or HOMO
Last year, this mammal, which suckles
everything but its young, was represented
in the presidential campaign by Mr. Joseph
Blotz, one of the most promising of the
species ever to challenge broad daylight.
Mr. Blotz lost out, by a narrow margin, for
three reasons:
First he had somewhat less sex appeal
than an old inner tube, a fatal deficiency in
any candidate. The Student Council, in conclave, is expected to be able to heat the
whole south end of the Brock Building with
its agglomerated oomph, and the humming
of its hormones should be audible for several miles.
Secondly, many of the sciencemen had
not yet learned the art of primitive signature, and were therefore frustrated when it
came to marking a cross after the name of
their candidate.
Thirdly, and least important, Mr. Blotz
did not exist.
Spurred on this year by their near success in electing a caricuture of a president,
the sciencemen, always active burrowers,
cast up a candidate of what they like to call,
in the vernacular of their tongue, flesh and
Mr. Rodney Morris, as you know, was
swept to victory on the sea incarnadine.
I have only one memory, albiet a vivid
one, of Mr. Morris. I recollect watching him
and a few gay friends in Chem. One, when
they tossed some lively chemicals into a
sink, stepped back, and puffed their pipes
contentedly as the sink rose gracefully into
the air, dismantling several lab assistants in
a very jolly manner on its way out of the
This is our new president. Those with
beads are advised to start counting them
now, before the rush starts.
Intoxicated by victory, with a chaser of
mob spirit, the Mammals exultantly threw
in yet another candidate, Mr. Arvid Back-
man, who was promptly elected treasurer.
But Backman can read. And Backman can
write. He is not an ordinary scienceman at
all; yet we have put our money into his
hands! Good Lord, can't we wait for inflation? Can't we imagine what will happen to
the A.M.S. funds; must we actually see the
men lay the foundation for a new wing on
the Science Building?
You have heard the election promises
of these sciencemen, but the true, carefully
hidden plan has now oome to light. This
1. Complete administration of all co-eds.
2. Abolition of Artsmen and ploughing
under of Aggies.
3. Toll bridges, built and operated by
engineers, across all puddles on campus
4. Equipment, built and operated by
engineers, for the creation of puddles on
campus sidewalks.
5. Redress of all legitimate grievances,
illegitimate grievances being sent to approved foundling homes.
6. Undress of all pass features.
This last item involves the wiping out
of any,artist who refuses to offer either a
well-plucked fan dance, or a balloon dance
that has been seriously affected by the rubber shortage. It is expected to be particularly hard on Arthur Benjamin and the Hart
House Quartette.
Also planned, in this connection, is the
allocation of funds for the construction of
a runway from the stage of the Theatre over
the first ten rows of seats, which seats will
be occupied by aged sciencemen whose
eyes have weakened more quickly than
their ambitions. Co-ed chorus girls will be
subsidized, with living allowances going to
those displaying special aptitudes.
There will also be a slight change in
the preferential system of voting next year,
designed to ensure the continuance of the
Morris Dynasty. Students will be allowed
to vote for whomever they choose, provided
they do not prefer to go on living afterwards.
But, not content with having snaffled
both executive positions on the Dirty Nine,
the Mammals are fiendishly attempting to
gain a majority by running three more candidates in tomorrow's elections. Two of
these are Narod and Eyre. The third is a
dark mare named Miss Josephine Hnnff,
contesting for secretary. Stripped of her
chewing gum and ankle sox, the innocent-
looking Miss Hnnff will be seen to be none
other than one Charles Nash, a particularly
dangerous Mammal, who is about as innocent as the Artie winter day is long, and
who, by some remarkable coincidence, is also
election supervisor.
Arts! Aggie! Commerce! Arise! Come
on, get up on your elbows, confound you.
Hnnff must not be elected. Science must
not be given a«free hand. Remember the
Science credo: "The hand is quicker than
the eye, and ten times more satisfying."
Protect your women and children, before identification becomes impossible.
(N.B.: As a result of this fearless expose,
I shall not be available on the campus for
the next few weeks.)
Evelyn (Buddy)
In view of the fact that the Secretary voices an opinion in council
discussions — I will endeavour to
express and uphold, as freely as
possible from personal bias, the
desires and wishes of the student
Shirley MacDonald
I offer no definite platform.
However, I shall endeavour to cooperate with the other members
of Council to the utmost of my
ability. My special effort will be
directed towards all war aims of
the University.
Luella Mannix
I do not feel that a definite platform is necessary. To me, the
prime factor is that the secretary,
as a member of Students' Council
should be able to vote with under- (
standing and precision.
I feel that I am fully capable of
carrying out the requirements of
this positon.
If elected I shall support all
projects promoting the interests of
the students. I am prepared to endorse all proposals furthering a
more favorable relationship between the University and outside
contacts and between the students
and the faculties.
Barbara Newman
In running for the position of
Secretary, I realize that a conscientious attitude is necessary.
More than that, I feel that with
the spreading of the war, the effect upon the Alma Mater Society
should be seen in a redirecting of
its past policy with an eye to Increased support of such organizations as the Red Craw and the
United War Services. Continued
economy should be observed in
student affairs.
You probsbly feel as I do that
next year's Council's policy must
suit the times. My only election
promise, therefore, Is to work for
the best interests of the Alma
Mater Society In the routine duties
of secretary and In the broader
responsibility of shaping the Society's policy.
Mary Warner
In accepting the nomination for
Secretary of the Alma Mater Society I am well aware of the responsibilities involved, Although
it is difficult to present a clear
platform for this position, I believe that it is important that a
councillor should weigh any problem under consideration seriously and without bias . , In general
I feci that an oven greater emphasis Should be placed on thc
activities of the War Aid Council
and that student policy should be
directed with a due regard for any
necessary war economies.
If I am elected I will co-operate
fully with the Students' Council
in the best interests of the student body as a whole.

It is difficult to state a platform
which could be adhered to these
days. I do not believe that the
students expect the Univrsity life
to be unaltered. To believe so Ls
uncalled complacency. And to present a platform full of promises is
risky. But I do believe the students
expect the candidate to be aware
of the difficulties that will arise
and will have to be overcome. I
am interested and have had experience in the type of work required for Junior Member, Therefore, I feel safe in promising that
I shall acquaint myself with all
the tasks, and try to solve the
problems as the students wish.
Alan Eyre
I undertake to bring about closer
co-operation between the various
elements within the campus Itself
and the alumni without in order
to better carry on the University's
war effort.
I would propose to combine the
various branches of the war effort
into one, to make a concerted
drive toward a single objective.
I would endeavour to promote a
Homecoming which would be successful both athletically and socially.
Ronald T. McBride
Here is my program for the office of Junior Member:
1. That Homecoming next year
shall have as its main theme a
welcome to all graduates and alumni who are serving King and
Country in the Armed Services.
2. That any club, group, organization or faculty that is working
for the welfare of the students of
the students of the University shall
receive my wholehearted support
3. That the war effort of the
student body shall be the centre of
all functions and parties of the
student year.
Alan Narod
Men of U.B.C. - It would be
foolish to promise anything definitely for next year, but I propose!
(1) That there should be more
co-operation between athletics and
the C.O.T.C.
(2) To attempt to convince the
C.O.T.C. that University teams
should be organized into accredited P. T. classes.
(3) To keep all major sports
alive, but if it is impossible, to
promote all minor sports.
(4) If outside competition is
abolished, to make it possible to
win in athletic award in intramural sports.
(5) To promote an intra-mural
program better than the intra-
fraternity sports program.

extra hour of daylight has been
thrown in for us to use. I believe
our best contribution to the war
effort would be to use this hour
In such a manner that the general health of the student body
would be greatly inmproved.
Each fall the Frosh should be
introduced to each of our sports
by the leading athletes in each of
those sports.
1. Tennis should be revived by
holding regular tournaments.
2. Inter-faculty games should be

My three broad planks are:
1. More popular use of pass feature funds with less emphasis on
intellectual salvation.
2. Democratization of the class

Junior and Senior class party.
3. Co-ordination of all patriotic

Chinese Cave City
Site of Sanitarium
Given By Students
• A SANITARIUM for students in Yenan, China, may not
be unique in the annals of medical. history, but it is
certainly unique in interest for American students. It was
American student giving which made this amazing sanatar-
ium possible.
Yenan, in North Shensl, is in
the loess section of China. It is a
city of caves. There are thousands
of them, scattered throughout 20
miles of mountain gorges. Homes,
schools, industries, government offices, everything—and everybody-'
ls In caves. Living In caves offers
marked advantages. Not only is
one safe from air-raids, but one is
warm in winter and cool in summer. Furthermore caves are economical!
Here is, a description of the student sanitarium, constructed in
October 1940 with funds sent to
China by the World Student Service Fund. "It is all caves-120 of
them—street upon street, half a
mile up into the mountains. If it
is not one of the seven wonders,
it is certainly the eighth. The
ground excavated from the eaves
has been built Into wide outdoor
porches, where patients can sit or
lie in the glorious mountain air
and sun, Christians abroad contributed $10,000 Chinese currency
toward the sanitarium. The Yenan-
itiea thanked us again and again
for this help."
The construction cost of the sani
tarium was less than $12,000 Chinese. Equipment cost |8,000 Chinese.
The sanitarium has 100 beds. By
March 1941, 156 patients had been
admitted, of which number 63 were
cured and discharged at the end
of six months. The alarming increase of tuberculosis among students, due to abnormal living conditions, makes the sanitarium a
most valuable addition to the program of student relief.
The monthly upkeep of the hospital is only |9,000 Chinese. At
the current rate of exchange (U.
S. $1.00 to Chinese $20.00) the expense amounts to U.S. $1.50 per
patient per monthl This amazing
return makes American student
giving more significant than ever.
The Chinese are enterprising a-
bout helping themselves, also. We
quote from a report from the local
student relief committee in China.
"For shortage of funds, the authorities have resorted to raising
livestock, such as pigs and chickens. The proceeds from their sale
help to augment income. During*
the first three or four months, the
hospital earned Chinese $80.00 from
sale of pigs."

Appeal of "Barbed
Wire Legion" Heard
By I. S.S. Workers
• IN THE WORLD today there are more than 4,000,000
men in the "Barbed Wire Legion". For the most part
these are not professional soldiers, they are merely the different types of men who go to make up humanity—men like
us, just ordinary folk dressed up in uniforms. This is why
imprisonment is so difficult for them. Whether soldiers,
sailors or airmen they face a bleak future as prisoners of war.

Red Cross  and  the  international
Because most of the prisoners
are young men the I.S.S. is answering the cry for "help" from this

men use the time they must spend
in prison camps constructively, to
help them prepare for the time of
release when peace comes, to help
keep their minds fresh, alert, and

Y.M.C.A. has helped to establish
prison camp universities. Books,
writing materials and other essential supplies have been provided. There is almost a university
atmosphere In many of these
camps where definite lecture hours
and period have been arranged to
keep the men occupied — to use
their time. Those of the prisoners
who have the qualifications —
and there are many outstanding
university men and professors
among them — are used to give
lectures in their own fields. Handicraft work is carried on to act
as a therapy for body and mind-
many of the men learn new trades
Music, art, literature—the things
we so easily take for granted arc
denied these men and so the I.S.S.
seeks to provide musical instruments, drawing and painting supplies, and a wide variety of books.
These all help to pass the time
and make life more worth living.
This service is concerned with
living issues — with the need of
keeping the intellects and spirits
of young men such as Ralph Henderson who went from this' University to the airforce and is now

Stacy's and the Students are tied
for the third position now with
four points apiece, made up of two
wins against each other. This sud-
>den death contest on Thursday
should be a real thriller as the
Blue and Oold just managed to
squeeze in with an overtime win
the last time these two teams met.
Tookes and Shores were also in a
deadlock, this time for the top spot
but the Tookes copped the decision leaving the Shores quintet to
battle it out with the winner of
the Stacy-U.B.C. battle.
The students managed to keep
pace with the Dominoes on Saturday night for the first quarter
only, being down one point at the
breather 9-8. Jack Mottishaw,
brother of Hank potted a couple
of one-handed beauties from the
corner to aid the Victoria attack.
He picked up a total of 10 points
during the evening in this manner.
At half time U.B.C. were down
22-15 but the Dominoes really
went to work in the second stanza
coming out with a 1? point lead at
the-three quarter mark 37-20 and
breezing home from here with a
comfortable margin of a 44-27
Art Chapman was the standout
performer for the Dominoes as he
netted 17 points before leaving the
game on four personals late in the
fourth quarter. Mottishaw and
Baker were right behind with 10
and 8 points each.

scoring record established by Joe Ross three years ago, he
is still seven points ahead of Billy McLaehlan, the third
place contender.

War Prisoner's Lot Unhappy
are prisoners of war — just
what is it? What do they need,
and what is done for them with
the money given by American stu-
dents through the World Student
The regulations concerning prisoners of war were established by
international convention in Geneva
in 1929. According to this convention, the belligerent powers which
hold prisoners must feed them the
same food, in amount and quality,
which they give their own soldiers
of Uie same rank. Clothing anl
shelter of specified adequacy must
be provided.
Officers may not be required to
work, though enlisted men may be
given work of non-military nature.
All the belligerents are observing
these regulations. It is interesting
to know that the only international
laws observed today are these regulations regarding prisoners of
The problem of a prison camp,
then, becomes a problem not of
food and clothing but of morale.
Nowhere in the world is there as
much leisure time as today in the
prison camps of the world, Nowhere is there greater boredom,
more complete discouragement,
time hangs heavy indeed.
The World Student Service Fund,
through its administering committee in Geneva, is meeting some of
these intellectual and spiritual pro.
blems among prisoners of war who
were students or professors when
they entered the army. Travelling
secretaries visit the camps, gain the
confidence of the commandant, and
then are able to work directly with
the men. Classes are organized
ranging from dentistry and architecture to theology.
Requests are made for booki
which are sent In. Recreational
equipment is provided, and soon
soft-ball, soccer, basket-ball teams
may be organized. Phonographs
and records are sometimes provided. When it has been possible
to get musical instruments, enthusiastic orchestras or string
quartettes have been the result.
Worship groups and study groups
have been spontaneously formed.

All students who wish to get In       	
some free skating are asked, to
bring their blades, for they will
have the use of the ice after the

been offered as an added enticement to those who feet that the

The team to play is unchanged
from last year, except for the welcome addition of two Vernon boys,
Bill Husband, and Dick Saunders.
Many of the veterans of last season will be on the Ice to do as*
well this year as they did last.
Cheer leaders, and the Varsity
Band will be added attractions to
the game and free skating. The
Varsity hockey team will gladly
supply skating partners for any
girls who come alone, and they
hope that there will be many.
Varsity Coach, Johnny Owens, has
picked the team to play against
the league leaden, the Vancouver
Junior Lions. The two forward
lines will be composed of; first
line, Bill Husband, Dick Saunders,
and Ted Stevenson; and second
line, Jim Goodman, Harry Home
and Norm Oill.
This first line has proven in several games to be one of the strongest that Vanity has ever had. In
the team's last game, they accounted for no less than five goals. TJke
second forward Una is composed
of the old reliables, who may/ not
score aa heavily, but manage to
hold their own with the best that
can be offered against them.
Edward Taylor, and Jack Moxon
will make up one of the defence

beer, and a one time forward, Alt
Bonutto will form the other. Harvey Carmichael has been listed aa.

"Sieve" Benson, star of the past
three seasons, will be guarding the
pipes, with hopes of getting a
"shut out".
Manager Jack Carlisle announced
that the team is In top shape after
a strenuous working out over the
week end. Coach Owens claims
that this is one of the finest teams
he has ever led, and that Friday's
bout with the Lions should be a
Members of the team Itself also
expressed great optimism as to the
outcome of the game.  Ted Stevenson, husky forward of the team
said bluntly, "Victory will be ours,
there can be no doubt of that!"
Others were not so enthusiastic
but felt that with the "breaks of
the game," the results would be
This is the chance that many

• STILL staggering from
their recent loss of men,
and their reshuffled line-up,
the second place Varsity soccer squad will tackle the top
place Police aggregation in
one of their moat carooshal
tilts tomorrow at the Cambie
Street grounds.
In spite of their serious losses,
the boys have managed to retain
their second place standing, and
only need a win over the strong
police entry to tie them for first
place. In their last contest the
Police tied Varsity following some
very dubious refereeing, and it is

Roach, neither of whom made very
creditable showings last Wednesday, are expected to be out and

Both boys have been stars in prev-

to hold the team together, when
they meet the formidable gendarmes.
