Students' Society' At McGill
Supervises Student Activities

.. ._



(One of a Series)
Canadian students are more demo-
cratic than their southern neighbors,
or at least, they are at McGill Uni-
versity, Montreal, Que. For at Mc-
Gill every student on campus is a
member of the so-called "Student
Society," which was organized in
1908, according to G. W. Fletcher,
secretary-treasurer of the Society's
executive council.
Back in 1908, friction arose between
the students and the "Principal" of
the university, when the latter de-
manded the names of certain students
who had got into difficulties over stu-

Here Is



Barton Hills, the no-man's-land of7
Ann Arbor, belongs to township school
district No. 5 rather than the Ann
Arbor city school district, according;
to the Ann Arbor township board. But;
the city school board's attorney,
George Burke, says this makes no dif-
ference: the final status of Barton
Hills will be decided in the courts
when a decision is arrived at in a
pending suit initiated by 13 residents
of the Hills last Jan. 15.
The trouble started when an agree-
ment never formally approved by
either township or city school board
went into effect last fall, whereby
half of-Barton Hills would be includ-
ed in each district. Before that agree-
ment, Barton Hills taxpayers had
been paying half the school tax of
each district.

A trophy consisting of an in-
genious arrangement of a small
piece of wood, a collar button, a
thimble and two safety pins has
been awarded to Mrs. George
Stauch for posting the highest
score in a series of weekly pistol
matches among members of a
women's pistol class.
The class was organized by Mrs.
Myrtle Pierson, who is also re-
sponsible for the design of the
trophy. She ranks third among
,.thewomen pistol experts of the
United States.
Mrs. Stauch's score was 67 out
of a possible 100.
Five new members of the Ann
Arbor Community Fund Board were
chosen yesterday in an election by
mail, with former Community Fund
contributors as the voters.
The new directors are Stanley G.
Waltz, manager of the Union; Mrs.
William Clark Trow, wife of Profes-
sor Trow of the School of Education;
Mrs. Arthur W. Bromage, wife of
Professor Bromage of the political
science department; Rev. Charles W.
Brashares, and Dr. H. H. Cummings.
Eta Kappa Nu Cancels
Annual Engineering Trip
Plans for the second annual eastern
engineering inspection trip sponsored
by Eta Kappa Nu have now been
definitely cancelled, according to Car-
rington Howard, '40E, publicity man-
ager of the tour.
Preliminary surveys relative to the
number of engineers interested in the
trip had indicated its probable suc-
cess, Howard revealed. However, a
final check has shown that the group
would be too small profitably to char-
ter a bus.
Pointing to the fact that many stu-
dents now enrolled in school took the
trip last year, Howard indicated that
the inspection trip may become a bi-
annual tour and plans are being con-
sidered for next year.

lent-conducted parades and over the
control of athletics. The object of
the Society, according to its consti-
tution, Fletcher said, is to exercise
general control of the undergraduate
activties and the relation of the un-
dergraduates with the university, sub-
ject to University rules and the juris-
diction of the Senate, which corres-
ponds to our University Faculty Sen-
Executive Council Confers
Inasmuch as all the students on
campus are members of the Society,
meetings are held rather infrequently,
and all business of the Society is car-
ried on by an executive council, com-
posed of eight students elected at
large; the president of the Society,
also elected; the president of the Wo-
men's Union; president of the Men's
Union, and the editor-in-chief of the
McGill Daily.
In addition to the executive coun-
cil, there is an athletics council which
handles all the athletic relations of
the University, arranges schedules,
supervises the managerial system for
all sports, intramural competitions,
athletic awards, and has the care of
all equipment, including analyses of
athletic budgets.
Referendum is provided for so that
the students may amend the consti-
tution or cause the executive council
to attend to any particular problem
the students think expedient.
Organizations and activities han-
dled directly by the executive coun-
cil include the following: a book ex-
change, debating society, glee club,
Men's Union, McGill Daily, yearbook,
university band, dramatics club, stu-
dent directory, student employment
bureau and other lesser organizations.
Financial Report Obligatory
The entire monetary set-up .of the
various student activities is handled
by the executive council, and they are
obligated to publish a financial re-
port once a year. Fees from the stu-
dent body take care of all expenses.
This fee, called a "universal" fee, is
additional to regular tuition, but the
latter, unlike Michigan's, does not
include Union membership, athletic
fees or the like. These, as well as
automatic subscription to the McGill
Daily and other benefits to the stu-
dents, are included in the general fee.
The Society is a member of the Na-
tional Federation of Canadian Uni-
versity Students, which sponsors
many intercollegiate activities, both
in government and in athletics.

Finland Will Be Under Virtual
Soviet Control, Ehrmann Says

"Finland will be virtually under the
complete control of Soviet Russia
now that Tuesday's treaty has been
ratified," Prof. Howard M. Ehrmann
of the history department asserted
The Finns will be unable to resist
Russia in any way, Professor Ehr-
mann explained, as the loss of her
principle fortifications place her in a
position comparable to that of Lithu-
ania,Latvia and Estonia-that of al
Soviet protectorate.
The treaty itself, he pointed out,
is far more severe than the U.S.S.R.'s
demands prior to Nov. 30, 1939, when
the war broke out. At that time
Russia asked for a change of the
Karelian Isthmus frontier, enough of
a change to remove Leningrad from
the range of big guns, a change in the
boundary line in the Petsamo area,
some of the islands in the Gulf of
Finland and the fortress of Hanko.
According to the reported provi-
sions, however, he said, Finland is
to cede the entire Karelian Isthmus
including the Mannerheim Line, Vii-
puri, Finland's third largest city, all
the shores of Lake Ladoga, parts of
two Arctic peninsulas, Hanko and a
number of the Gulf's islands.
"As a result Russia's strategic
position is greatly improved," Profes-
sor Ehrmann continued, "for in addi-
tion to acquiring control of the Gulf
of Finland and securing the safety
of Leningrad, she is now protected
against any possible attack by France
or Britain from the north. She is
also free to move against Rumania or
the Balkan countries if she so de-
sirest s
Another important consequence of

the treaty is to limit European hos-
tilities to one front, he went on to
say. If the Finnish war had lasted
longer there would have been thej
possibility of the western war merg-
ing with it increasing the number of
Russia and Germany are given yet
another advantage by the treaty, Pro-
fessor Ehrmann claimed, as they now
have the opportunity to reorganize
Soveit transportation to facilitate
shipping needed supplies to the Reich.
The war, he concluded, did not inter-
rupt this reorganization as the paper
work, which had to be done before
actual construction work, was being
done while Russian-Finnish hostilities
still existed.

He then listed and evaluated the
world's vegetation areas: the great
tropical rain forest belt; the tem-
perate rain forest land with its cul-
tivation of bananas and coffee; the
high grass areas whose land is ex-
cellent for agriculture; the prairie
grass lands which stand as "the
graineries of the world"; and the
great forest areas, unsuited for agri-
culture, but stocked with good tim-
ber and wild game. It is this latter
