 The Ubyssey
NO. 43
by Jim Banham
I ran across the ner.test trick
of the week for raising campaign funds the other night
while eating dinner in that
underground boiler factory
known as the cefeterb.
I discovered that a UBC fraternity, who plan to run a candidate
for a secondary student council
post this yea/, are raising funds
for his personal treasury by raffling off a couple of bottles op whiskey. The proceeds will be used to
publicise the young man, who will
presumably be' sober when he
greets prospective voters.
Which Is more than we will probably be able to say tor those who
win the fire water.

\ One student who accosted me in
the cafeteria wanted to know if
this process was a legal one and

The question of the legality of
such a practise on the part of this
fraternity of red-blooded young
men fails to arouse any emotive
response  sin  me.

The resourcefulness of Acadia
and Port Camp residents and one
young lady on the executive of thc
Arts Undergraduate Society were
Impressed upon me this week In a
little story worth telling here.
The young lady ln question contacted Brock Hall Janitors and
members of the snack bar last
week and informed them that the
Arts Undergraduate Society were
going to hold a free dance In the
lounge of the student building Saturday night.
Accordingly, the snack bar stocked up with extra sandwiches, cake
nnd doughnuts and prepared (or
rush business. BUI Bradshaw, proctor of the building, got extra commissioners out and prepared himself for an evening of supervision.
There was only one hitch in the
plans: tiie young lady failed to
Inform the student body that there
would be a dance.
At any rate, a hurry up call to
both resident camps brought hordes
of eager young men stampeding towards the campus Intent on claiming a mate for the evening.
When It was found that there
were not enough young ladles to
go around, the males charged off
to the women's residences and confiscated enough of the opposite sex
to being the total dance population
to 75.
The snack bar did $10 worth of
business thus losing only $10 on
the deal—which may or may not
be  consolation,

Finally Elected
Grad Treasurer
A student outside the faculty
of applied science has finally been
elected to the executive of thc
graduating class.
The redshlrt stranglehold was
broken yesterday with the elect-
tion ot Ken Murphy, a third year
law student, to the executive as
Murphy's election was necessitated by the withdrawal of Newt
Cornish from UHC because of sickness in the post-Christmas term.
Only 110 grads turned out yesterday to elect Murphy.
rrofessor P. \V. Vernon, of the
department of mechanical and el-
ectrlcal engineering was elected
honorary president of the graduating class hy the meeting. Di'-
Malcolmn Melntyre, professor In
the law faculty will act as honorary   vice-president.
Two suggestions were advanced
by the meeting for the gift of the

student and member of the present council offers a policy of

After Saturday's Dance Flops
Budget of the Arts Undergraduate Society has been suspended indefinitely as a result of a dance in Brock Hall Saturday night which lost more than $40 for the Alma Mater

Campus Grt-tk Row
Btgins Stptember
Twenty-one years of pledging and saving will culminate
this September in the opening
of the first on-campus fraternity house by Phi Delt.» Theta.
Construction on the $38,000 house
began last week when the bulldozer dug out the first stumps.
The fraternity has been trying for
three years to get the project
started but has been stalled by
red tape and rising building costs.
The lot was first cleared by mem-
berg a year ago Christmas.
The modern, two-storey house Is
being built opposite the new gymnasium - between Wesbrook Crescent and Western Parkway. Built
to accomodate ten residents and
contain capacity for one hundred
guests, the house is designed to
allow for two-way expansion. The
fraternity hopes to be able to house
every out-of-town member on the
The main floor will feature a
dining room with one wall of glass
looking on to a paved terrace; a
large main lounge and attractive
fire-place; and a smaller residents'
living-room. A large amount of the
$5,000 for furnishings will be used
in equipping a modern, up-to-date
Money has been raised chiefly by
pledges of $100 from each member
payable on his graduation, to the
building fund. Built on a lot 160
x250 feet, president Art Phillips has
stated that the garden will be looked after by the pledges.
Furnishing will be done by the
enthusiastic mothers' club which
has already raised about $1,000.
The construction ls expected to
be completed by July but the official opening will wait until UBC
opens In the fall.
The group failed to Inform coordinator of activities Jim Midwinter of the free dance and engaged Brock Hull snack bar help
and janitors for the evening.
No publicity wos given the dance
and no one attempted to set publicity, John McKinnon, treasurer
of the AMS said Wednesday. The
budget was suspended at student
council meeting Monday night at
Midwinter's request. His motion
was seconded by McKinnon.
ln making the motion, Midwinter
accused the AUS of "mishandling
of AUS activities, with particular
reference to the dance held January 27, 1951 . . . "He recommended that the budget be suspended
"until a full explanation of their
future activities haa been presented to the AMS treasurer and coordinator."
Only one couple showed up at the
Saturday night dance according to
Brock Ostrom, president of the
Men's Athletic Association, who
was working in the building with
coordinator Midwinter at the time.
By calling both resident camps
on the campus, the student councillors got 75 people at the student
AMS president Nonte Donaldson
said the AUS budget would only
be suspended until the group could
give an account of its activities
for the rest of this year.
The group had planned a series
of six free dances during the second part of the term, according to
Jim  Midwinter.

New Canadian Finds Welcome, Security Here
(Brigitta is a Hungarian DP
student who arlved here last
fall under auspices of International Student Service.)
Austria  is  ii land of mountains
and rushing rivers.
It is the first station where
those who have escaped from behind the Iron Curtain on a moonless night find relative security-
tor such a long time.
These people have left behind
a security they have not known
their homes and families—all those
things which they have striven for
such a long time to gain.
Most of these people were escaping imprisonment and concentration camps, because Ihey upheld their beliefs in human rights,
because they wanted to carry ou
Iheir religious beliefs, and because
j they refused lo accept a hyporri
| iifii 1 stand.
These people fled from their
country, and their flight was not
easy. They had to take the risk
of being shot by the border guards
or arrested before arriving In the
Bitlsh or American zones ln Austria.
Among the thousands of refugees in the tamps in Austria, there
are hundreds of young people who
have had to interrupt their stu
dies. Some of these students are
working, their studies are neglect
ed. Wages are too low to permit
them to further their education.
Besides this, the work is physically exacting, for they do the jobs
the native Austrian would not do.
The ISS is trying to assist some
of these students to carry on their
education In Austria. However, the
main objective of tills organisation
is to maintain a close contact with
the universities of the Weslern
Hemisphere, which are represent
ed   in    thc    International   Student
Through these channels the organization establishes the connection which permits the students
to Immigrate to a country, to complete their studies ond to start
a new life.
The refugee student has fled his
homeland, where he lacked security. During his stay in Austria,
the student must look after himself. Were It • not for the aid of
ISS the student would have little
hope for the future. These students
were outcasts in the country they
left and are outcasts In the country which sheltered them in Western  Europe.
The student's trip to his nev
land is organized by IHO (International Refugee Organization.)
I He hoards the ship with hundreds
i of other immigrants, full of ap-
I prehension as to how the people
of Canada  will  recei\o  him.
He experienced air-raids during
the war, suffering flight and humiliation afterwards. Will he now
niget fresh rebukes and mockery"
Will he be rejected once again?
I think the answer to this question 1$ best expressed in a sentence I read a few clays ago in a
local paper. It was just a "space-
filler," hidden between two articles. It read.
"There are no foreigners in Canada, but there are many new Canadians.''
Maybe during the first few
months, while the Immigrant student is overcoming the barrier of
language and is adjusting to a new
way of life, lie does not realize
what Canada is giving him. lie
has found a country which he
can call his own—a country to re
place the one that was taken away.
lie can build a new homo for the
one   which   was   dest roved,   lie   can
believe and express his Ideas freely—without the fear of prison and
tortue. He finds friends who understand him. Now he can do the
work he has been trained for—he
wants to work, because he is no
longer forced to,
What more can a country offer
than peace of mind, understanding,
security  and   hope  In  the  future"
We new Cnnadlnns find rebuilding our lives a thrilling experience. We feel deeply that we belong to this land, our slncerest
wish is to make the greutest contributions we can to our country
and to our fellow Canadians.
It was a rainy, dismal morning
when I first stepped on Canadian
I soil. There, above the entrance to
; the Immigration office at the Mon
i (real Airport I read "Welcome to
i Canada!"
N'ow    I    really    know    what    that
means. Page 2

Letters To The Editor
We're Not Red, But
If any member of the Canadian Peace
Assembly deserves a pat on the back from
an anti-communist source, that person is Dr.
James Endicott, who spoke to UBC students
Few of us can still help wondering
whether world peace is the only important
motive prompting Dr. Endicott to run around
the globe on a seemingly endless speaking
But, nevertheless, those of us who heard
him cannot help admit that Dr. Endicott puts
up a formidable argument opposing the United States point of view in the present world
We are not willing to accept r.aivc-ly the
supposition that Dr. Endicott is presenting the
whole  truth  and  nothing  but.
But on the other hand we are completely
unwilling to accept the criticism that Dr. Endicott is "Red-tinged," and therefore his
entire argument is nothing but a pack of
For one thing, many of the sources of
his evidence, though not necessarily valid,
come from the American side of the argument, a point which should indicate that at
least the whole question is not thf* simple
black-and-white problem that U.S and Soviet
propagandists alike would have us believe.
Whatever many of us may suspect about
Dr. Endicott's motives, few should remain
unconvinced that the man really believes
what he says.
The unfortunate thing about any Endicott today is that as a world figure he must
^an one way or the other.
Anyone who presented the whole side
of both arguments, if such can be known,
would sink into immediate oblivion.
He would be scorned by both camps, and
the dollars which now enable Jamos Endicott
to continue circling the globe would probably go to finance similar expeditions by
someone of more doubtful integrity.
More Of The Same
An-extra big bouquet should go to
Dorothy Somerset and all other English
Department members responsible for producing Ben Johnson's "The Alchemist."
As one of our columnists expressed it
earlier, "Dorothy Somerset has clone it
What could have been added to that
statement is the fact that we can now be certain that the success of their production,
"Masses and Man," last year was no mere
"The Alchemist" has confirmed the belief, of all who saw it, that in terms of theatre
know-how, Miss Somerset and her crew have
plenty of what it takes.
Though many of the troop this year were
little more than novice actors, they showed
confidence and ability in tackling a play than
many a more experienced cast might stay
away from.
It's an inescapable fact that, despite the
Elizabethan dialogue of the play, its action
demands as fast a pace as many a Broadway
Our student actors kept this pace and
kept it almost consistently.
We believe we speak for the entire audiences of both nights' presentation;: when we
express the hope that the English Department
will see fit to keep pace with its own commendable record, by giving many enjoyable
performances in future years.
It's not too late to hope that the Physical
Education group's "Club Fizz-Ed" has
more "fizz" than fizzle.
We understand that a UBC fraternity is
raffling off two bottle of liquor to raise
funds for an AMS election campaign.
Perhaps the election will be a two-way
race between J. Barleycorn and Lord
Critic On The Hearth
At the last concert of the Vancouver
Symphony, interest was centered around
soprano Lois Marshall and justly so. The
conductor Nicholas Goldschmidt, as he has
evidenced in his direction of the CBC Opera
Company, is primarily a vocal coach and not
a symphonic conductor. Although his interpretations are not without their points of
interest, his command of an orchestra is still
insecure. ,
Miss Marshall on the other hand is certainly Canada's most accomplished and talented young singer. Her voice is big and
beautiful. However her upper rango is not
yet sufficeiitly supported to give it the same
luxurious quality evident in the rest of the
I think that Sunday wa.s perhaps tho
brasses' clay off. Certainly their accompanying work in the "Fidelio" aria sung by Miss
Marshall was more inept than any of Iheir
many previous catastrophes.

Madelynne Green, a mime-dancer, displayed a rather strained type of charm in her
program of satirical and interpretive dances
last Thursday. Perhaps the most highly developed aspect of her talent was a neat musical sense. I felt that Miss Green was at her
best when being naively comical. Her plain
face and stocky body seemed most believable
when projecting simpletons.
Far more exciting and skilful to my mind
were the Indian Dancers sent up from the
University of Washington in connection with
a touring display of authentic Indian wearing apparel. The dancer's costumes were happily conceived with bright colours and their
movements showed the disiplined result of
intelligent, intensive study and research.
But these remarks on the dance are little
mote than literary impressions. I have yet
1o discover any appreciable difference between (he Charleston and the Big Apple.

Kditor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
As a supplement to the report
of the Epdlcott meeting carried In
the Jan. 30 Issue of Ubyssey* 1
suggest you rend an article in the
lqtest Saturday Night. It contains
a few .interesting reflections on
ope Kind of philosophy that some
sincere Christians today follow
The article says In part:
"Our Christian friends may
feel that they are safe in supporting Stalin's potage . . . with Chinese chopsticks. They will wish before they are through that they
had used ft very long-handled
spoon. For I have never Imagined
of them that they could go through
to the end with the Communists;
and I have never imagined anything else of the Communists except that they were using the Endl-
cQtts for what they are worth, to
confuse the kind of people who
will listen to the Endicotts of the
Western world."
The whole of the article may he
found on page 16 of the Jan. 30
Issue of S,N. For anyone who
heard Dr. Endicott pn Monday this
comment has a particular Interest.
Yours truly,
M. Haw son.
no place at a university. |
O rant also misunderstands;
the criticisms voiced Jiy the professors at this university. Their
objections are usually founded on
facts, and are not prejudices
against Qpd, but criticisms aimed
against the beliefs, values and attitudes of organized religions, ln
uny case, there are many religions
cluhs pu the campus. They bring
out lecturers, whose ideas on how
to live (we assume) are approved
of hy the clubs sponsoring them.
If further indoctrination Is wanted by the individual, there are
Sunday sermons on the radio and
In churches. Mr. Livingstone points
out that the majority of the students do not put lorth the Interest
and effort to join these clubs
Should this be so, Is It Mr. Livingstone's Intention to raise the
Interest of the students by bribing them with an extra three units?
Undoubtedly, what the Student's
Council ljad In mind were courses
which wopld outline the values,
beliefs and attitudes of the Ureal
Faiths; their successes and failures,   their   historical,   psychologi
cal and cultural Influences. Tho
courses would be intended to inform students about the basic
teachings of their own and other
peoples' religions. Eternal words
may grace churches, temples or
synagogues, but not university
In conclusion, It Is necessary to
object to Mr. Livingstone's opinion that the belief tltat "the purpose of higher education Is to get
higher Income" ls becoming more
prevalent. On the contrary, many
of us realize that our Incomes are
going to be level, If not lower, than
that of people without a high educational level. Hut we do not Ignore the fact that we cannot live
In spirtual reflections, just as we
cannot live on love.

Editor, The   llbyssey,
Dear Sir:
There Is but one point on which
the writer cun agree with Grant
Livingstone on what he has to
say ln the Guest Column of January 28rd Issue of this paper. The
Ubyssey certainly gave an excellent brief coverage of the Student
Council's reasons for suggesting
that religious courses ought to he
held at this university. In all other
respects, Mr. Livingstone is unnecessarily passionate and sentimental about a topic that should
be discussed objectively. Phrases
like "the eternal words of the Son
of the living God have not been
able to grace our university" are
Inappropriate for a university
paper. It is Just this passionate
and sentimental language that secularism opposes. Secularism Is not
resentful to religion Itself, but lo
tactics used by rellgloiiR functionaries to Indoctrinate people.
A course that will not Involve
rightful negative; criticism is nol
objective. Mr. Livingstone makes
It clear by Ills phraseology that
the religious courses |ie wants to
see being offered at the university
are ones on Christianity that would
not involve the criticisms that are
deserving to any religion. A
course that ls not going to be objective, that is going to appeal to
emotions  and  not  to  reason  has
