 LSE Declares
'Political Move'
• FIFTEEN members of the Literary and Scientific Executive went on record yesterday as unanimously declaring the majority report of the Student Representation
Committee adopted by Student Council to be both inadequate
and rushed.  —————
Spokesmen for the group stated
that they felt that neither plan
met the needs of student government and abhored the rushed nature in which the plans had been
presented for student consideration. Opinions that the move was
a deliberate political move "to
ride into power" were heard from
many members.
Students will vote on the majority report of the Representation
Committee and a minority report
at a general AMS meeting Tuesday.
The majority report, backed by
President Dick Bibbs, Ken Creighton, Les Raphael, George Rush
and Helen Morgan, calls for a 13-
r.an council comprised of the present members with the exception of
the MUS president and Junior
Member and with the addition of
four faculty representatives and
two members at large.
The two members at large would
be elected by the general student
body from sophomore and junior
years. Faculty representatives
would be from Arts, Agriculture,
Science, and Commerce.
The minority report, backed by
Gordon Bertram, Allan Ainsworth
and Barbara Greene calls for an
advisory council of 40 drawn from
major LSE clubs, Pan Hellenic,
Inter-Fraternity Council, Senior
Editors of the Ubyssey, undergraduate class presidents, Fnraterep
and future faculties now considered as clubs.
Four members would be included in the "future faculties" clause,
one each from Nurses, Home Economics, Forestry and Pre-Med.
The advisory council would have
the power of approving or censuring Student Council, which body
would not be materially changed.
Student Council under the minority report plan would be comprised of 12 members, and would
contain no MUS member but four
faculty representatives.
The two reports have been mailed to former student officers,
alumni and faculty members for
suggestions and criticisms.
• ALL CANDIDATES for offices on the Students' Council are reminded that their
platforms will be published In
The Ubyssey IF they are typewritten, double - spaced and
handed ln BEFORE noon of
the day preceding the closing
of nominations. This will be a
Tuesday noon for all candidates. Platforms handed In
after that date will NOT be
published. Candidates are also
reminded that they are allowed
more words than was previously announced. Candidates for
president and treasurer will be
allowed 150 words. All other

"Joe Boys" of Campus
Send Out Plea for Aid
• THE MAMOOKS have a dirty
job. They do many and varied
jobs which are essential to the
functioning of campus activities
but which at the same time are
thankless. They make the many
posters, they supply the hat-check
people at dances, and at pep-meets
like the one the Red Cross had
Tuesday the Mamooks supply the
men to take the money at the
However, Mamooks' president,
Ron Grantham, says that other
clubs are not cooperating. Thsy
send in their orders for posters on
slips of paper "the size of a postage stamp." They phone at 11:30
thc night before a pep-meet and
ask for a number of people to aid
in the program.
This, when there is no time.
To alleviate the rush caused by
clubs ordering signs too late to
give Mamooks time to prepare
proper ones, Grantham has had
forms printed which the clubs are
to fill in, giving particulars as to
the sign, the date wanted, and
other such data as is pertinent.
Orders for large posters should
be placed with the Mamooks at
least a week iry advance, for small
placards at least three days In advance.
Because of dissatisfaction expressed by many clubs as to the
position in which the Mamooks
placed the signs when they put
them up, they have stopped doing
It is now up to the clubs themselves to call for their, signs and
distribute them. Many times clubs
have obviously thought it was the
Mamooks' duty to put the signs up
for they have been left in the
club-room unusad. This wastes
paper and paints, both of which
are hard to obtain.
When signs are once ordered, it
is up to organization ordering them
to call for them and get them up.
Mamooks right now are suffering a shortage of experienced poster-makers. Anyone interested
should truck on down to the Mamooks' club room any Thursday
during the noon-hour. Your membership will  be appreciated.

Gondoliers Smell
At Rehearsal
deny emphatically that their
rehearsals for the "Gondoliers"
have anything to do with it.
They are indignant, however, at
the penetrating odor of putaric
acid that permeates the Auditorium and stifles the hard-working
cast at work. The smell became
apparent after Tuesday's Snowball
pep meet and has lingered to
plague the sensitive noses of the
Mussocers ever since.
It Is of the same type as the
odor that filled the Arts Common
Room last year.

Chicken Squawks
During Bus Trip
• STUDENTS aboard one of the
university  busses leaving the
campus about 3:00 p.m. Thursday
suffered an acute attack of 'delirium wonderums'. s
One of the many standing near
the front moved his foot a few
inches, and in the process kicked
a gunny sack which was lying
on the floor.
Immediately a series of loud
squawks rent the air inside the
has. At the first raucous sound
everyone in the vehicle turned a
surprised face in the general direction of the sound. At the second
and third occurences the truth
dawned upon them and peals of
laughter drowned out unseemly
Yes, that's right. The sack contained a chicken, 'on the hoof

Mud in the Brock
There's mud on the floors of the Brock.
It's everywhere, in the AMS office, the
lounge, upstairs. It's caked even more on
the worn floors of the Pub. This is no reflection on Ted and Mitch, who look after
the Brock Memorial Building, but a little
testimonial to the fact that there is no sidewalk from the Brock to the Caf. And when
it rains it brings mud everywhere.
Countless numbers of students making
the trek from Caf to Brock cannot avoid
the muddy road, unless they take the ns-
phalt way by the Gym. One of the University's most beautiful buildings is slowly being
ruined by the endless drops of mud from
student shoes.
This year's graduating class took up
the question when they were deriding what
donation to give to the University. They
Were in favor of putting in a cement sidewalk. They ran into difficulties, however,
when they learned that the university architect was not quite ready for a sidewalk.
It seems that UBC's master plan calls
for the road to the Brock being several feet
higher. They cannot put the road in now.
If the sidewalk was built now it would have
to be broken up when UBC becomes itself.
The graduating class', quite sensibly, did not
want to have their memorial broken up, and
so decided to forget about the matter of a
But it still rains in B.C., and there is
still no sidewalk.
The only other solution open now is the
one applied to save the floors of the Gym
from destruction, an asphalt sidewalk. The
present walk from the Gym to the center of
UBC has proven very satisfactory and worth
every dollar put down for it. The cost is
about $150.
We hear that Students' Council will
send a letter to the administration very soon,
requesting that the Brock get its asphalt.
We hope that the letter brings us asphalt
quick. The Pub is slowly disappearing under a growing layer of good old B.C. mud.
Good News For UBC
Mr. H. R. MacMillan's gift of $47,500 is
good news for this University. We hope it
is the first of a long line of gifts for the improvement and advancement of UBC.
We suspect that the letters of the Forestry Club to Mr. MacMillan and their
briefs presented to the Sloan Commission
had a g*ood deal to do with the gift. We do
not knov? for sure, but at any rate we can
say the forestry students didn't do any harm
to their cause.
Mr. McMillan's donation is to be split
three ways. Seven thousand, five hundred
dollars is to be used for three years work
in forestry and $7,500 per year for three
years'-work in fisheries. Another $2500 is
to be used to establish a revolving loan fund
at UBC for students in forestry who are
in financial difficulties.
As Dr. N. A. M. MacKenzie said, forestry and* fisheries "are two of the most
important basic industries in the province
and our future prosperity will in large incisure depend upon our ability to maintain
an annual return from each of them and to
process and market the products efficiently."
Here is UBC serving its province in the
way it was meant to serve since its establishment. The province is a last realizing the
asset it has practically ignored for many
years. But we have not reached the end.
Endless roads to vital research for British
Columbia begin here on our campus. We
should begin our way up them very soon.
Successful Red Cross Ball
We doubt if they could have squeezed
one more person into the Commodore last
Thursday night. We wonder that they were
able to squeeze in as many as they did. For
this champion squeeze play of the .year WT
offer our congratulations to our hard-working Red Cross Ball committee. Special mention must go to Mary Frances Trumbull,
Chairman, and her obstreperous assistant
chairman, Donald Newson.
But we mustn't forget the other members of the many committees who helped
to make the ball such a success. We haven't
the space to mention them all, but they are
to be congratulated for their clever and untiring efforts.
To the chorus, also, for that wonderful
kicking routine we extend our sympathy
and compliments. We understand it takes
get back to normal.
When the final figures for the ball are
compiled, 1945's "Snow Frolic" should prove
to be one of the biggest money-makers* of
them all.
We should take note that Leslie
Raphael, who seems destined to acquire the doubtful honor of becoming our last president of the Men's
Undergraduate Society, has joined the CCF
party. Mr. Raphael, former members of
UBC's mock parliament will remember,
used to be a Liberal. He gives as his reasons
the fact that "now is the time to get on the
band wagon" and that he wishes to avoid
"mental constipation". Mr. Raphael hasn't
been reading right,
Council Revision Plan 3
•   THE INQUIRY Research Action Council, a body of students, was formed last
year for the purpose of analyzing student
and University problems.
Since there has been considerable controversy regarding the two plans put forth
by the Revision Committee of the Students'
Council, the members of the IRAC felt it
Was time that their findings were brought to
the surface.
The plan is simple in reality (it gives
the elected class representatives something
to do).
It has been designed to meet the needs
of the students in an expanding University.
The following main principles have
been stressed in the plan—
1. Decentralization of responsibility
and authority into five functions.
2. Continuity.
3. Greater   contact   with   student
4. Checks and balances in the form
of a policy 'Council'.
The responsibility and authority for
decisions regarding the Alma Mater Society
shall be divided into the following main
divisions—I. Men's Sports, II. Women's
Sports, III. Literary and Scientific, IV. Social Activities, V. Disciplinary, Governmental, and Promotional (men and women).
Each of those boards, as they shall be called,
shall have a president elected annually by
the student body. Similarly a secretary-
treasurer shall be elected whose duty it will
be to keep minutes and record the expenditures, the latter to be forwarded to the
Main Treasurer for recording. Finances will
be allocated, in the beginning, on the basis
of the average expenditures on these activities during the past five years.
The governing body of these boards will
consist as follows. Literary and Scientific,
the same as at present; Men's and Women's
Sports, senior managers of the major sports,
the sports editors, and faculty representatives as they see fit; Social Activities, and
the Disciplinary, Governmental, and Promotional Boards v/ill be composed of one
member per faculty per year as elected by
those faculties in their regular class elections.
The five bodies shall meet separately
once a week to discuss business and pass
legislation pertaining to their particular
fields. In order that a check may be had
on their activities it will be necessary to
provide an over-all policy 'Council' composed as follows—
A President, Secretary, and Treasurer
elected annually as is the case now; the 5
presidents of the boards; and the presidents
of the four major faculties for each year,
plus the#editor-in-chief of the Ubyssey.
It would be the function of this Council,
also meeting once a week to direct student
policy relating to the Administration, the
public, other Universities, and generally to
review the activities of the five major
boards. In matters concerning the University as a whole it shall be the supreme
An executive will be formed from the
policy 'Council', consisting of the President,
Secretary, Treasurer, and one other member
elected by the Council. This executive
would carry on the routine business necessary in the Alma Mater Society office.
the Debates
• SINCE UBC waa victorious in
the Frosh Debates both in
Vancouver and Victoria, one could
blame it either on the decision of
the judges or on the presence of
two girls on the UBC team aj opposed to only one on the Victoria
In any case, "it was a hard Aght,
ma, but we won" proposition.
UBC gained first win in the series
by a very narrow margin.
In Vancouver, Alan Roeher,
leader of the affirmative, presented his arguments in a forthright
maner, thus setting the pace for
e very even debate. lie pleaded
• for a happy medium between "an
impractical Socrates fan and a
slide-rule devotee of the joke-
jerk type." He poked fun at the
professors by saying that "after
all, deficiencies ot college education were the fault of the professors."
A tall, gaunt Artsman from Victoria College then proceeded in a
very pleasant manner to tear
down Roeher's arguments. Another roving critic believes that
Ron Shepherd shows great promise of developing into an excellent
debator judging by his adept manipulation of his material and his
agreeable voice. He regretted the
absence of a rebuttal since he took
slight offense at the term given
him by Roeher, "armchair philosopher."
Second affirmative speaker,
Rosemary Hodgins, showed the
possession of an analytical mind
with a love of too mucn material
foi the allotted time, or so the
speed of her delivery indicated.
Peter Castran, Victoria College
pre-dental student, not only "got
every ounce out of every available point" but also used a squint
for added emphasis.
In the opinion of the judges,
Prof. W. N. Sage, Prof. J. A.
Crumb and Dean D. Mawdsley,
UB€ -won because ot their better
arguments although Victoria College had the better delivery.
According to tha UBC ravelling team of Harriet Hochman and
Bob Harwood, the outstanding
feature of their visit to Victoria
was the warm hospitality shown
them by their chief hosts, Dr. and
Mrs. Olsen, parents of the Victoria debater, Peter Olsen.
The rumours have it that the
Victoria debate was a, much more
riotous air than the learned dis-
cusion heard in Arts 100 here. '>ne
such by-play was aroused by
Gloria Kendall's condemnation of
students who are mere "sponges,"
to use her term. To this remark,
Bob Harwood wondered "if that
implied that professors were all
wet or if they were just plain
Two judges gave the decision to
UBC's negative team in preference
to the affirmative as presented by
Gloria Kendall and Peter Olsen.

Auction'Frankie Y
Tie in ISS Drive
• TORONTO, Jan. 27-(CUP) -
A bow-tie that once graced
the throat of Frank Sinatra will
be one of tiie articles garnered
from the closets of famous Americans to be auctioned off in conjunction with the University of

In a secluded cavern, in the depth

Thirteen tense bodies, attached

Twenty-six hands, attached to
the bodies, gripped the table, with
a grim determination.
That last statement is not quite
By count, only twenty-two
hands grasped the table. Tiie other four hands grasped a small
strangely glowing object which lay
in the centre of the table.
This object was difficult to describe. In fact, too difficult so I
shall not bother. Suffice to say
that it was a ouija board that
Thirteen people stared in anticipation at it. Thirteen hearts, filled
with apprehension and anguish,
beat in unison—one-four time.
Only the fellow thirteenth from
the end was off the beat
Any fool could plainly see that
this was a meeting of the Musical Society.
But why are they here, and at
this time of night? And what was
the ouija board for? And why
was it glowing? And why was it
so important?
Perhaps time would tell. But
perhaps it wouldn't, so I will.
Suddenly, from the depths of
the ouija board (has a ouija board
got depth) came a deep sonorous
"I am coming, Musical Society",
and from the board rose a white
nebulous cloud which hovered in
the air above the table.
"I have come from my grave to
tell you," and here it paused, "that

dispersed, while humming snatches of Gilbert and Sullivan.

break the monotony.
However, I digress. It was now
obvious that the Mussoc had

would be a big success.
It appears that the spirit was an
ex-member of the Mussoc now
deceased. It has been rumoured
that the misguided fellow disappeared after rashly suggesting
that the Mussoc try something

Euclid, brilliant Greek mathematician,
explored new realms of science, and analyzed the universe into points, lines, angles,
curves, surfaces and solids. His Elements of
Geometry, has been in use, practically unchanged, through 2000 years. New worlds of
knowledge were opened through Euclid's
RESEARCH still goes forward. Twenty-
four years ago industrial research with
Nickel was greatly intensified. The
Nickel laboratories in Canada, the United
States and Great Britain have since
discovered hundreds of new ways in
which Nickel and its alloys can be used
to make better products. This research
has been a valuable aid in the great
expansion of Canada's Nickel industry.
When the war is won, these laboratories
will again direct their efforts toward new
peacetime uses for Canadian Nickel.
They will be aided by the great store of
knowledge gained during the war.
Canadian engineers and metallurgists,
who are constantly seeking better materials with which to make better products,
are invited to make use of this store of
information obtained through the years
of Nickel research.
Thus will science and industry, working
together, broaden the use of Nickel, ana
so help keep the Canadian Nickel mines
and plants operating and men employed.

that the Webfoots are leading
the Conference. There were shouts
of joy, and exhilarating celebrations such as are seldom seen these
days. Indeed, even the basketballs
got up and bounced with glee.
For, on Wednesday night,
the University
of Washington
Huskies dropped an important game to the
Oregon State
Beavers. The
loss dropped
them into second place and
left the highflying Webfeet
on top of the Pacific Coast Conference.
The Oregon Emerald came out
with a sports page such as we have
not seen the like of for many
a moon. In fact, they even had a
sport signature, which is rather a
rare thing with the Emerald.
(For the uninitiated, the
sport signature Is the cut which

•very Ubyssey sports page, in
spite of the fact that many of
the other colleges do not believe ln carrying it. In fact,
several of the other universities don't believe in carrying a
sports page.)
But to get back to the Oregon
Emerald. They really have trouble
getting a sports editor for their
sheet, although Anne Craven does
a great job as editor-in-chief. You
see, the University of Oregon paper
is a daily.
The Ubyssey, as you know, is a
tri-weekly (published thrice weekly),   and   requires   a   separate
editor for each day. However, the

with but one editor for the three

Although we have been understaffed  throughout  this year,   we
have managed to bring you most
of the sports news on the campus.
But we're not patting ourselves on

Trounce Shoemen 40-19
• VARSITY'S Senior B Thunderbees took the measure of
Stacys in two straight games in their best-of-three semifinal series when the trounced the Shoemen 40-19 Thursday
night at King Ed. The 'Bees will now meet Higbies who
were awarded a bye after finishing the regular schedule on
top of the heap.
Varsity was really hot
throughout the forty minutes
of play. Checking was fast and
persistent—so persistent that Eddie
Zielski, mainstay of the Stacy
quintet, was held to a single
counter and due to their faultless
checking the Shoemen never
The whole Varsity squad shared
the scoring honors. For the opposition, Jimmy Lancaster netted
eight cbuntera and Wally Zeilski,
six for the Stacy team.
In an Inter B contest, Higbies
took the second straight game
from Doug Maclntyre's Tookes by
a 30-25 margin.
Here are the scores of the Varsity tUt:
VARSITY: Huyck 4, Nelson,
Pederton 5, Climle 1, Bryant 2,
McGeer 7, King 6, Edwards 6,
Hooson 3, Vaughan 6. Total 40.
STACYS: O'Brady 1, W. Zeilski
6, Lancaster 8, E. Zeilski L Duncan 2, Straight 1, Bosquet, Morton.   Total, 19.
Sandy Robertson, starry sharpshooter of the mighty 'Birds. Sandy
scored 17 points against Ted Milton's Higbies in Wednesday night's
tilt which the Thunderbirds won
by a 41-36 margin. The 'Birds
meet Higbies again tonight at 8
o'clock at the Varsity Oym.
O CAQETTE teams take over the
spotlight in tonight's basketball stand at the UBC Oym. Two
Seattle teams, Bremerton Navy
nnd Seattle Boeings battle two
local girls' teams. But the senior
loop still holds the feature spot
with Varsity Thunderbirds taking
on Higbies at 8 o'clock.
Judging from the performance of
the Milton men against Varsity
Wednesday night at King Edward
Gym, when they lost by only five
points, 41-36, Higbies will put up
another stiff flght for the Thunderbirds. Lauries Pie-Rates knotted
up second place with UBC Chiefs
