this time to cut down on graduation expenditures.
President Klinck refused tO give mmm—mmmmmm—mmmm—mmmmmmmmmmmm

must correct their "misleading
statement" (that graduation fees
at most other universities were
less than 510.00) before he would

Students
In Universities
• PLACEMENT of students after gyiduation and during the
summer holidays, is under keen
study by the Wartime Bureau of
Technical Personnel, a labor department branch created more
than a year ago to survey the supply of skilled technicians and
scientists in Canada.
L. E. Wcstman, an assistant director of thc bureau, has just completed a tour of universities in
British Columbia and will report
his findings shortly on summer
employment of students and their
enlistment in tho armed forces and
industry.
Recently representatives of tho
Labor Department, the Defence
Department and medical deans
from several universities conferred on problems facing university
students. Much of what transpired at that conference still remains a secret but tho govcrn-
nicnt is giving "very active consideration" to a plan for increased assistance to students and no',
only medical students.
Old Council
Initiates
Successors
• STUDENTS' Council introduced an innovation at their mooting last Tuesday night in the way
of waiters for their regular supper
in the Brock. New Council members served the courses to the 1941-
42 group as part of their Initiation
rites.
The plan was adopted to cover
up the lack of regular waitresses,
who refuse to wait upon councillors until they adopt a different
attitude to their boss, Frank Underhill.
"They have persecuted him all
year with nagging about high
prices and until they agree to lay
off, wc refuse to wait," stated their
spokesman.
Asked for a statement, councillors were silent, but Rod Morris,
new president said he was tired
of carrying dishes. "Our food is
cold when, wc finally sit down,"
ho sUdcd, "and I don't enjoy one
minute of tho meeting.

All  Students Subject  Remains Same Until
To Call Next Month     Next Year -Porter
OTTAWA, APR. 2 (CUP):—Universities across tho Dominion will bo closed to students for the duration of the war and grounds and buildings taken over by tho military, a
well-informed spokesman revealed here late last night, following the last session of Parliament before it adjourned for the Easter recess.
This surprise announcement, coining close on tho heels of the government's new selective-service proclamation last week, means in effect that all male students will be subject
to call by the Army immediately after the April examinations, and will not be able to continue their university education until after tho war.
Sixteen universities from British Columbia to Nova Scotia will be affected by the
sweeping order. For the most part, the campuses will be taken over following the spring
term, although in some cases (including U.B.C.) the government will wait until the conclusion of summer school sessions before effecting too drastic changes.
(UBYSSEY EXCLUSIVE)
• AS SOON AS the amazing story above clicked
off the teletype from Ottawa
late last night, Ubyssey reporters contacted officials of
the University of British Columbia to gain their reactions
and obtain further particulars on how the new plan
will affect this campus.
Most were nou-commital, reserving public statement until more
Information could he received from
official quarters. A few, however,
expressed personal opinions, and
ventured suggestions on how the
U.B.C. campus would he changed
from a scene of academic learning
to a veritable front-line of defence.

ACUTE DANGER
"Tho danger of invasion to our
Pacific Coast is so acute and Point
Grey Ls such a strategic defense
area that officials sec no alternative but to transform it into another Gibraltar fortress," one authority stated. He explained that defense preparations would get under
way as soon as posisblc after tho
spring term ended, and be in full
. , . Non-Committal
swing when tho summer session
closed in August.
Detailed plans for #thc defenses
to bo erected cannot bo divulged,
but It ls understood that tho army
and alrforcc will work in close
collaboration.
Tho steep cliffs of Point Grey
make ideal natural barriers to any
invasion landing attempts, while
thc largo level fields of the agricultural area at the rear can be
converted into excellent landing
fields for R.C.A.F. planes. The
surrounding wooded areas will
probably be used by the R.C.A.
for heavy gun emplacements.
TRANSFORMATIONS
According to present plans, most
of tho buildings will bo used as
dormitories for the thousands of
troops who will displace university students here next fall. Similar use will be made of the buildings on the other campuses to be
taken over by tho government.
While U.B.C. will be transformed
into an actual fighting bastion, it
is understood the inland campuses
will become training centres for
military and air reinforcements.
Faculty members will be conscripted to instruct trainees in divers
technical courses essential to the
building of Canada's new mechanized army and airforce.

DEFENDERS—A determined Machine Gun crew withstands the attack of the Black
Guards Saturday afternoon as the Hirohito Guards beat back repeated attempts to dislodge
them from the University area in the gigantic sham battle on the campus.
Described by Colonel Shrum as a fitting sequel to a year's successful training the
battle put to a test the practical of both C.O.T.C. and Basic groups.
Sedgewick Deplores Canadian Attitude
• LASHING OUT at lack of cooperation in Canada as far as
thc war effort is concerned, Dr. G.
G. Sedgewick spoke to tho CSAD
Tuesday.
#Thc head of thc English department deplored thc attitude of tho
Oknnagan and Alberta when ho
spoko of the plight of thc Japanese who had to leave the coast
and were not wanted at those
places.
When the speaker got round to
mentioning some of the tilings
that ho hoped would be present in
the post-war world he startled
some of has listeners by condemnation of the present order and
advocation of some kind of social
experiment.
"Thc prcrent system of capitalism
is unworkable, i don't care what
kind of system you want but do
not be the kind of person who
.sits back in comfort and wants
only thc "Status quo." There arc
thousands of people who arc
hungry for something better."
When" talking of the chances for
keeping peace after the war the
speaker said that there must be
some sort of international police
force formed of a combination of
the United Kingdom, the United
States and thc Soviet Union.
Oficcrs for the coming year arc;
President, Ken Gricb; vice-president, George North; secretary,
Viva Freeman; executive members, Gelda Reynolds and Don

"RIVALS" TOUR
• "THE RIVALS" netted a profit of approximately $250 which
so far as i.s now known will enable the Players Club to make it3
usual summer tour to B.C. towns.
Tho proposed tour will include
this year Powell River, Port Alice
and will probably continue up to
Kamloops although all nrrange-
montr. have not yet been completed foi' this leg of the trip.

• FIFTY STUDENTS responded t the Student Council's
call for a special Alma Mater Meeting yesterday to discuss possible deduction of the Pass System fee from $3.00 to
$2.00, resulting in cancellation of the meeting and shelving
of the proposal until next year at least.
«—__      TREASURER'S ACTION
The meeting was called at the
■* suggestion  of  retiring  A.   M.  S.
I   OrtCT   ■    ■   ■ Treasurer Keith Porter, who ex
plained that because of the necessitated curtailment of athletic
events and other pass feature*
due to war, the normal peacetime
allotment to the Pass Fund was
not warranted.
Following is the resolution which
Porter planned to lay before the
student body at the meeting yesterday:
MOVED: "THAT WHEREAS the
war has caused a curtailment of
many of the activities normally
supported by the Pass System
Fund, and WHEREAS the Pass
System Fund is administered under trust, it is deemed advisable to
reduce the amount of the fee in
question, for the duration of the
war:
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED
THAT the Annual Pass System
fee be reduced from the amount
of $3.00 per annum to $2.00 per
annum with the explicit understanding that immediately upoa
the cessation of hostilities this
fee will be returned to the previous figure of $3.00 per annum.
AND THAT IT BE FURTHER '
RESOLVED THAT the Students'
Council be empowered by special
resolution to expena or otherwise
apply the excess funds remaining
on hand at Jhe end of this year."

Shrum Has
New Plans
for Armories
• COACH Maury Van Vliet may
havo to postpone his plans to
make the Armories into an auxiliary gym' if the suggestion that Lt.
Col G. M. Shrum will submit before the Senate meeting Wednesday receives their aproval.
As suggested by Col. Shrum,
the University will institute miniature auto races to be held twice-
weekly in the auditorium to help
pay for the upkeep of the giant
structure.
"We plan to install a banked
track on the floor and arrange
seating for 1500 persons," Col.
Shrum told the Ubyssey Wednesday, "and if the plan is a financial
success, may extend the plan to
amateur horse racing."
Until ratification of the scheme,
no guesses con be made, but it is
expected that since military training ends this month, the Senate
will look with favor upon some
means of paying for tho upkeep of
the Armories. Another plan suggests sub-letting the oficcrs quarters to visitors from the prairies.

Life in Amy Camp
Conclusion
Our Sergeant-major; or, The Real Enemy
What has gone before: I seem to be
carried away by my subject as the good
Queen said when her prime minister was
obliged to remove Her beloved and noisily
drunk Majesty from the council chamber.
To proceed, however: The men of the
C.O.T.C. have just finished their breakfast,
or, as it is called in the army "breakfast".
Everybody is now going around clutching
his government issue cramps. In the army,
this is known as doing everything on the
double. Read on:
Our platoon was assigned to one of
those small, red, English sergeant-majors,
whose attitude toward us quickly defined
itself as being other than maternal. For the
first five minutes he painted, in the vividly
rich colours of Rubens, a word-picture of
ourselves as he saw us, and at the end of that
time three men in the front rank had to be
carried off for treatment £f third degree
burns. He had one of those military vocabularies of which the words spit in the eye
before entering the ear, proceeding then to
kick in the tympanum, leap into the stirrup,
hurl the hammer onto the anvil, and finally
plunge into the semi-circular canals, where
they lie sizzling sulphurously.
It soon became apparent that he intended to grace us with a full-length portrait
which might take some time.
"Pardon me for interrupting, sir,'' I said
politely, "but I am standing, in a puddle."
Something like a sigh escaped from his
lips, singeing our eyebrows.   .
"And whose fault is that?" he demanded sharply, with what I suspected to be a
touch of sarcasm.
"Step out in front here!" he snapped
suddenly, jarring my cap onto the back of
my head. '
I plodded out before the squad, saluted
with a slight dash of curtsy, and stood
watching him apprehensively.
"Don't look at me, look at the squad!"
he barked. "They're younger than I am and
can stand it better."
I pivotted around to meet the unsympathetic gaze of my comrades.
"Now we are going to have a little mutual instruction," he said, with a nasty laugh.
Mutual instruction, in the army, is when
you get out in front of God and everybody
and make a fool of youself at no increase in
pay.
"Show them the left turn!"
I nudged the turf with my toe for a
moment, then said, in what I considered to
be an ingratiating manner:
"Well, fellows, my interpretation of this
particular gyration ..."
"Stand at attention and take your hands
out of your pockets!"
"I beg to submit, sir," I said, "that it
will have to be one or the other. If I take
my hands out of my pockets, my pants stand
at ease automatically."
I coughed slightly, and started again.
"Well, fellows, my interpretation . . ."
"Talk louder!"
"Well, fellows ..."
.     "Louder!"
I closed my eyes for a short period of
communion with my soul.
"You don't mind if I butt in?" I asked,
quivering.
"A good idea!" he shouted. "And pull
in your stomach as well. Throw out your
chest!"
I withdrew and threw various parts.
"Is that a chest?" he enquired with
feigned amazement. "It looks more like a
jewel box,"
"Well fellows . . ."
"Prove your men, before you start!"
"What do you think we are, fawns?" I
cried exasperatedly, but he had walked a-
way to another group of sacrificial goats.
"I suppose you may as well move a-
round, chaps," I suggested graciously. "Quick
march, if you feel up to it."
They moved off down the field. Then,
a ghastly thought struck my mind: I didn't
know the command to stop them.
"Righto, you can toddle back now!" I
yelled, but they seemed not to hear me.
"That's far enough, gentlemen! Stop,
fellows! Halloo there!"
Slowly the khaki figures diminished in
size marching steadily into the distance, and
finally disappearing over a hill, the. sun
glinting on the last cap badge. Then —
emptiness.
I was alone. A cow in the next field
stared at me unemotionally through the
fence, ruminatively chewing Us cud. Frogs
in nearby pools were croaking what sounded like "Jerk! Jerk! Jerk!"
I sat down on a stone to think the thing
out.
"WHERE'S YOUR SQUAD!" a familiar
voice bellowed behind me.
I rose to meet the abrasion.
"No stoop, no squint, no squad!" I chirruped miserably.
"You mean you have lost thirty men?"
he screamed.
"Maybe if we put an ad in the paper .
. ..." I volunteered—but it was too late.
Tho sergeant-major was sitting cross-
legged on the ground, eating his puttees with
great deliberation, and there was in his eye
a light that never was on land or sea.
I think it was then that I ceased officially to be officer material.
HOW TO ANSWER AN EXAM ..
QUESTION      	
QUESTION:  Discuss thc following poem in relation to the industrial    revolution    In    Guatemala.
Give examples:
"Oh! Thou who bear the flaming
crown
Of   nature's   kingdom,   hear   my
song!
'Tis a   rapsody   of   gold,   though
sounding tinny,
The poet is alchemist, his potions
are strong-
He fuses some words in his bubbling brain, and lo!
Changes night into sable, star Into
gem,
And  thus   starves  amidst   riches.
But do I dare
Touch,   even   with   a   word,   so
splendid a diadem
That regal crown, sweet nature'3
own garland—your hair?"
ANSWER: This poem was written by Julius J. Jugg to his last •
mistress, Gertrude de Underslung-
steln, and who was very active
until his death. This poet was born
in 1823, and dying between 1878
and 1888. He was the last of sixteen children. Thto i3 the only
available record we have of his
father. His family was very poor,
his mother having ceased to show
any initiative after Julius' birth.
Gertrude was a red-headed ticket-
taker on a merry-go-round. There
is no record of how far Julius went
on the merry-go-round. They
were quite friendly, and having
six children and a small farm,
where they spent all but their
spare time.
This poem is made up entirely of
heroic cutlets. This puts the meat
in the metre. Please excuse writing.

Reflections
By PETER REMNANT
• THERE HAS BEEN far
too much flaunting of
knowledge on the campus of
late by a group of self-styled
Intellectuals known as  the
Players Club.
Tho brave man who wanders Into their retreat in the rear of the
Auditorium is surrounded by shaggy haired, untidily dressed animals, both male and female, who
jabber excitedly about Shostakovich's Seventh Symphony, or
what the Impressionists are doing
these days.
Other less aggressive people
creep restlessly from corner to
corner whistling snathes of Johann
Straus.; or Gilbert and Sullivan,
and muttering about Ignoramusscs,
"with tho emphasis on thc second
syllable i.s the correct intellectual
style."
Now this attitude would bo
merely amusing if it v.ero not for
thi' harm whieli it tlicH. For there
are1 many who are to impressed by
thi;: lcarnc.l pose that they listen
eagerly to the words of wisdom,
and often form their opinions accordingly.
A trip to their lair always leaves,
along with tho bad tasto in my
mouth, a burning desire to know
whether when thoy aro left to
themselves, they return to normal.

Here is the feminine counterpart of the jeep
suit worn by the Army boys when they take
their 'jeeps over the jumps.'
For thc Coed who craves comfort while
cramming for exams — the jeep is a
natural.   Like  the  original  men's
jeep suit—the feminine version is
deliberately  cut  on the  biggish
side, with huge pockets and fly
froht.
After exams the jeep stays on the
job as a holiday garb—for putting
around   the   garden,   sailing,   fair-
weather ski-ing, or just plain loafing
. . . and those tire-less Coeds will love
to wear their jeepers creepers cycling.

UBC  To Enter Baseball Nine In City League
Details Given
At Mural Rally
•   REVEALING ono of tho most startling items of nows this
year, the University Athletic Committee issued the following statement today: a Senior Varsity baseball team will be
entered in the Western International Baseball League.
Exact details and plans were lacking at thc date of the
publication of this issue but it was announced further plans
will be detailed at the giant Intra-Mural Rally Thursday
noon, April 2. mmmammmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmma
Evidently pestered by student
baseball players to form a spring
league, University officials went
the whole hog and placed their
bid in for a spot in the Western
International setup. '<
Yesterday   to   the   surprise   of
everyone they were accepted.
VARSITY NINE
Now the big thing, and it is admittedly a bit of a worry, Is where
Is Varsity to get players? Campus
enthusiasts think they could form
a student team but doubt is ex-
prcmod about this plan,
However It U foured thut only
students will be allowed to sign
on the Varsity nine. If this Is so,
then campus players will really
have to get out and train and field
a team.
The possibility of obtaining
Maury Van Vliet as coach has
been sounded out but as yet no
approach has been made towards
him. > •<
It Is expected that more complete
plans and details will be Issued at
the huge Intra-Mural Rally today.

Davies Find
No One Home
• EVANN DAVIES dashed madly into the publications office on Wednesday,
panting and pufling. "Say,"
he shreiked at the top of his
tonsils, "Did you know that
the English Rugby squad had
lost their last game?" No one
answered. There was no one
there. And so one of the
most important pieces of
news that has ever missed
the campus was wasted on
empty air.

its rcshnc.Ts and originality equalled only by three of the inmates
of that institution just past Westminster.
No amount of.,apology could
make up for this horrible mistake
by Mr. Davies. Surely it is not
too much to ask tho important
figures on this campus to give
their   information   to   thc   proper

Co-eds Pick Personalities
• A RECENT independent body on the campus held a survey the other week and the results were amazing even to
this reporter. Idea of the poll was to quiz coeds as to their
likes and dislikes during the ycar.
Heading the list of likes was that hard drinking D.U.
Mack Buck. More than 50 coeds expressed their opinion,
with plenty of oh's and ah's over the great big Buck. Most
stated phrase received from tho girls about Mack Buck, and
we quote:
"He's tall, he's slightly dark, he's a Frat man, he's a
rugger player and his name is Buck."
Usually this statement was accompanied with the lolly-
pop-liko expression "mmm mmmm."
Coming a close second to the almighty Buck in the
coeds' desire list was the "slick and mighty smooth man"
Doug Maloney.
Reasons for picking this grinning Irishman were varied
and at times admittedly confusing. Pet like among tho girls
about Doug seemed to he as follows, again we quote:
"What gets me about Doug," answered Susie Swartz
to the quiz, " is the way he talks to you. You get the feeling
he's got something to sell or give away."
Jimmy Boughten won the booby prize hands down in
this survey. Boughten, otherwise known as "Dumbo" among
the gals who know him, ran an easy last, beating out Dave
"the cafe lover" Richie.
It is in the dislike section, however, that the survey
becomes really interesting.
In the case of these opinions there was no one, and we
are glad to say this, who was entirely disliked. Most of the
girls' ideas were of a mixed variety. A few of tho many are
stated below, in condensed form.
Jimmy (if you got a car I love you) Aiken; most expressed opinion of Jimmy was as follows: "Jimmy's all right
but gosh, he moves so fast, don't you think so?"
John (slap my back) Carson; most candid opinion of
Carson was "he's just six feet of manly horrified friendliness,
that's all."
Kits, the Farina trained and
conditioned coached boys won tho
Inter - High Championship last
week when they defeated P.W,
Saturday they will tackle the
Victoria men in an atempt to repeat Uieir last victory and gain
the B. C. crown. Farina, when
asked if the Vancouver Kits team
had a chance stated:
"Well, the plays my boy's use
arc Varsity plays and therefore
they should trounce the Capitol
city boys.
Many of tho members of the
sports staff opened ono eye long
enough to demand an AMS meeting to act as a court martial for
Mr. Davies.
If ull tho Important figuscs of
tho campus acted In tho soma
way, wlmt wmtld Ihm'oiiio of tho

Ing that Jcun, or Mary, or Phyllto,
or nny of tho other important
figures on the campus acted in
such a manner? There would be
nothing to live for, would there?
This article is meant to .-.how the
rank innefficiency of tho student's
council, and thc utter lack of any
interest shown in thc work of the
staff of the Ubyssey. We hope
that thc point has been mid? clear,
and rest assured that the nefarious members to whom this is
directed will take note of it.

• DISPUTING THE statements made by one of the most
touted athletes of this continent (you can ask him any
time), tho University of British Columbia committee for the
advancement of athletic standing and physical fitness announced this week With tears in their eyes that "BEER IS
' GOOD FOR HEALTH."
The claim was based on statis i-
cal surveys conducted all over the
province and fell like a bombshell
on tho puritan minded members
of tho university. Many stated
that they didn't believe a word of
it. Others were elated. But the
general feeling was one of reliof.
Tho Ubyssey reporters seined
upon this hot news and went
down to one of the favorite taverns to substantiate or to debunk
this startling revelation.
Statements were taken from oil
tho athclotcs present, and these
are the results.

Contrary to our policy, nevertheless, it must be admitted, the
Beta Theta Pi fraternity again
takes the limelight in the Interfrat
world on our campus. Since thc
commencement of Intrafratcrnity
sports, this year, the Beta's have
had to be forced to take second
place on this page to the Phi Delts.
May this be further qualified by
a statement recently issued by
Jack Carlisle, the young gentleman who had led the Varsity Ice
Hockey team to unheralded
heights, and I quote, "I feel that
I must state that the only reason
that the Beta's have failed to reach
the public eye as much as they're
entitled to, is that Jack McKinlay,
the Sports Editor and Archie
Paton, the Editor-in-cnicf are
ho!i\ Phi Dolts." Tins was quoted
as a typical example of our own
"WVI fordian" Poll which was con-
diKtcd on the campus.
