MODERN DANCE GROUP
Biggest Problem
The grpwlng gulf between
the ''thutf amities" in their traditional "ivory towers" and the
dynamic materialism of science
must be bridged if humanity is
to survive an atomic age.
"The "struggle for survival ls the
bigg-eat thing in all our minds today," he told 50 delegates ?rom
press, radio, the church and school
system Friday at UBC," and we
are unlikely to keep the things we
believe in unless we continue to
advance the scientific technology
which makes one skilled man the
equivalent of a dozen potential
enemies .
But'l^W* lose sight of human
values, the studies of our literary
heritages, our history, philosophy
and the creative arts, we have lost
the -culture which gives meaning
to all those gains on the material
HldAof-llfe."
Dr. Baraett Savery, chairman ot
the philosophy department said
those Iri the humanities have been
the world's poorest salesmen In
their efforts to convince the public that they hold the key to the
most worthwhile values our society has  produced.
"Our present imperfections stem
from a failure to be true to
our. heritage of democracy.''
Modern Dancers In
Wednesday Show
Forty Young Women Demonstrate
Use Of Body In Modern Dance
The expressive use of the human body through Modern
bance will (be demonstrated in the Fine Arts Lecture'Series
on Wednesday at 12:30 in the Auditorium.
Miss Marjorie Miller of the Phy
sical Education Department will
lead her 40 young women through
a program designed to show all
phases of this art.
One of the group's main numbers will be Masses In Turmoil
with original music composed by
thjb' organizations pianist, Mrs.
Georgia Maciyiillan.
Subtleties of the dance, the Eternal Search ot the Masses for »
Caesar, sums up the content of this
work.
Miss Miller herself will be seen
as the soloist in a colorful Gypsy
number. Dance of the Flames that
was such a knockout at Club Fizz-
Ed will be repeated by request,
Miss .Miller herself summed up
the groups activities as an attempt
to express individual or group
emotions or states of mind through
the plasticity of the body. There
is no set form for the dances as
in Ballet and the accent ls on
simplicity of movement and line
with decor being reduced to a minimal importance."
FREAK MARCH WEATHER
ADDS TO UBC EXPENSES
Vancouver's freak March blizzard has already cost
,UI$P more than $500, and a cold snap could push costs up
.over the $1000 mark, the University's building and grounds
department said Monday.
A squad of 20 workers went into action Monday, clearing sidewalks and roofs,- and knocking the snow from tree
branches, to prevent breakage.
Student drivers had their trouble.* with the weather,
with more than a dozen cars reported stuck in the campus
parking lots.
Attendance at lectures was at a low ebb for the entire
year.
' RCMP officers said that accidents were few, and that
they beheved a greater toll was being prevented by careful
driving.
It was under the renowned Betty l.ynd Thompson of Oregon
State College that Miss Miller received her basic instruction under
Miss Miller direction one to
Modern Dance Clun on the campus
Miss Miller's direction and the
has  been  formed.
Lister Sinclair, of Stage 50
fame, will be the final Fine Arts
lecturer on the following Wednesday and will speak in connection with Theatre Festival Work.

MIDWINTER URGES
ELECTION OF
VICE-PRESIDENT
Co-ordinator Jim Midwinter
said late last night that he In.
tended to gather 100 student
signatures thit morning, en a
petition urging the Alma Mater
8oclety to hold • general •lection for vice-president ef Student Council.
Midwinter made the state*
ment after Council turned down
a motion favoring the election.
Other councillors held that
there was not sufficient time
left in the term to organise a
full-scale election.
Midwinter's petition will go
te the general AMS meeting
March 16.
Report Advises
Minor Changes
Constitutional Revision  Needed
Council Committee Discovers
Report recommending minor constitutional changes has heen submitted to Student Council, pending
further recommendations for sweeping structural revisions ln the
AMS constitution.
Headed by George Cumming and
Foster Isherwood, the committee
submitted two alternative proposals regarding the vice-presidency
and a clarification of election eligibility rules.
SECOND COMMITTEE
A second committee, headed by
Jim MtdwiMer and Ivan Feltham,
will present a later report suggesting major changes In AMS structure. This report will not be acted
upon until this tall.
Changing thaAosltlon of vice-
president from 'the head of the
Women's Undergraduate f^ifclety
to the chairman of the Undergraduate Society to the chairman of
tlio Undergraduate Societies Committee was the first alternative
suggested   by   tlio   minor   changes
committee.
Second alternative would be to
elect a special office of vice-president. Holder of this office would
head International Student Service and Canadian Federation of
University students, the report suggests.
CLARIFICATION SUGGESTED
Clarification of an inconsistent
Interpretation of election elellbll-
Ity was also recommended by the
coinmlttee. Present rules place
students who have spent three
years on campus as seniors and
those who have completed two
years, but do not have a degree as
juniors.
Report recommends that those
who fall in both classes be ruled
as seniors, since most Council offices require students to be seniors to be eligible for office.
Decision of Council regarding
the report will be submitted to
students for ratification at the
general   AMS  meeting,   March  15.
'Must Have  Better  Education
Than Commies/' Says MacKenzie
"Our country's most important natural resource is the
young people," President N. A. M. MacKenzie* stated over the
CBC Mondsy in an address given in behalf of Education Week.
The young citizens of the free
world must have a better, education than those In communist controlled countries, he pointed out, In
view of the fact that we are engaged In a struggle for survival,
and must be better equipped than
our competitors behind the Iron
Curtain.
Dr. Mackenzie emphasised the importance of 'education in today's
society .
"The schools are of major importance," he said, 'and they should
be the very best we can provide.
Schools consist of building equipment and teaching staff, but building must take second place In comparison to teachers who ehould
be the very beat and most Intelligent individuals in our society."
TEACHERS, NEED MOitg »AY
'We can only obtain food teachers, however,. If they are offered
rewards sufficient to hold them In
competition with other opportunities, Although the salaries and
training of teachers hae improved
In recent years the salaries aire not
as high nor the training*as thorough as it should be.''
Dr. Mackentie contrasted tiie Attitude of young people entering ttte
medical profession with those filtering the teaching profession. H»
showed that every reputable medical school on the continent fyad a
waiting list ot hundreds of thousands of student* willing tp itifMt
from seven to nine years in trilling. Yet there was a shortage of
teachers-despite the fact that only
two years training are required."
Dr. Mackentie voiced the criticism ot many ot his colleagues that
high school graduates coming to
university are not properly trained
in the use of English, mathematics,
science or languages.
He stated that the universities
must try to understand why young
people come to universities with
these deficiencies, looking to Causes
and agencies other than the
schools.
CHANGING CONDITIONS
Here he emphasized changing
conditions as one of the most important factors.
"Today," he said, "we can be
entertained, amused and informed
without any effort, physical or intellectual, on our part. This Is
largely because of the development
of the radio and television, the moving pictures and graphics.
"Therefore we must seek for
new ways and means of ensuring
that our young people get the training in the basic disciplines, including self-discipline that are so
essential in a democratic society.
To provide • a stimulus for students to come to university Dr.
MacKenzie advocated a generous
system of scholarship, bursaries
and loan.
Inquiry
Bogs
Down
Investigation Shows
No R-ttult So For
Student Council may have
reached a dead end in its investigation of UBC Bookstore
operations.
Charlie Flader, sophomore Council member and chairman of the
tee said Monday he had been refused permission to examine the
bookstore's financial statements.
HASN'T THE POWER
President Norman A. M. MacKenzie told him that lt ls not
within the president's power to
divulge profits of any university
department,  Flader Bald.
Further investigation would necessitate approaching UBC Board
of Governors, the group which
hold's the university's purse-
strings, and Flader said he did
not believe It would be advisable
to do so.
EXPECT TO DROP IT
Flader was thus expected to
urge Council to drop the whole
Investigation, during Monday's
meeting.        .
The committee chairman said the
president indicated that such profits as are made in book sales are
consumed largely hy the store's
overhead.
President MacKenzie is In favor of having the Administration
take over the purchase and sale]
of used text books, provided other
groups now Involved are willing
to make the change, Flader said.

Profs Go On Rampage
nnposed   in   lhe   2<Uh Ven- , al   the  door.
Professors at the University of
Alberta are on the rampage for
increased teaching salaries.
Alberta president Andrew Stewart said ln Vancouver Saturday
that salary conditions are about
the same in both western provinces.
Dr. Stewart predicted, however,
that hopes of receiving thoir demand were much higher in Alberta than they are at UBC.
"Alberta government Is in a good
financial position now," lie said,
"hut even with this encouragement we do not expect them to
throw their money around loosely.*'
Speaking to the Vancouver Institute on the eampus Saturday,
Dr. Stewart announced the failure
of a scheme whicli lias been used
at the University of Alberta to
solve the shortage of teachers.
Bursaries which have been
given to students studying teaching, have not succeeded in keep
ing    those    sludenls     wil bin     the
teaching profession.
Dr. Gordon Shrum of UBC Suggested that this problem might
easily be solved If teaching salaries were higher.
Turning to the topic of regulating student enrollment in the university, Dr. Stewart condemned
the practice of limiting the number of students allowed to enroll
In professional study.
"Fees should be roughly Connected with the operational costs
of Individual faculties," he said.
"The problem of inadequate facilities should not be solved by
limiting the number ,of students
using them.
"When facilities are overcrowded a plea should lie made to Increase the needed equipment. This
would prevent a select group of
administrators from keeping potential students from studying the
courses Ihey are interested in." Pago 2

Of Bluff And Cribbs
With balmy April skies just around the
corner, bright-eyed, spring-stricken freshmen
can look forward to their first fistfull of examination booklets complete with ominous
black-face-type framings.
Little as we want to talk about the annual battle of wits and bluff, we feel that a
word or two is called for on the black-face
warnings.
University students (or so the administration tells the public at 'budget time) are
supposed to be inculcated with all thoso nebulous qualities which make for good citizen-
- ship.
Honesty, we would have assumed, should
be taken for granted.
But examination rooms generally contain almost as many invigilators as candi
dates.
Black face type sternly advises the "»tu*
dent'that expulsion and public disgrace await
him who dares run afoul of the poker-faced
little men who tramp the aisles.
Surely the administration must feel a
little sheepish about the whole thing. Stu
dents, had they not been trained to believe
that they are universally regarded with suspicion, would probably stamp out and chai-
lange the chancellor to a duel.
Administration authorities may well
quote statistics to prove that a certain amount
of "cribbing" does go on. Occasionally, some
unfortunate is caught.
But this, we submit, is due largely to the
fact that the present system enourages the
student, to regard the whole examination
system as a bit of a farce.
Anyone who can get away with a fast
one is regarded as a man who has won a juot
reward for a commendable fight against, long
odds.
Were the administration td substitute the
honor system, the situation would chang 3.
We douibt if more than a handful of students would ever consider taking advantage
of it.
And it might be a little easier to convince the ever-skeptical public that we are
producing something a little better than common cheats.
A Constant Sceptic
Following is an editorial from the
Q-ueen's Journal, Queen's University,
Kingston. We reproduce it here in order
to point out that conditions existing in
UBC's Publications Board are far from
unique in Canada.
The freedom and independence of the
Journal has always been guarded fervently
by the editors of this newspaper.
Unfortunately  this  year  inroads  have
been made into that freedom and independence. The AMS executive has gone out of
its way to censure the Journal for over-
publicizing the Bye-Line Ball and has altered
our policy of not reporting senior hockey
games. A more serious attempt was made by
the Engineering Society executive when they
proposed to go to the AMS executive asking
that body to order the Journal to allot a certain amount of space each week to matters
peculiar to Sciencemen. Previously the Journal had informed a representative that the
plan was not feasible mechanically. President
Wheelan showed good sense in vetoing the
proposal.
The Journal is responsible to the AMS
executive. Because this body represents the
students and because the students finance the
paper this responsibility is logical and just.
However this final power must be used
with great discretion. It must be used only
where cases of libel, obscenity, prejudice and
promotion of private ends are in evidence.
To these charge we are not guilty.
If any closer control is exercised, as it
has been this year, tha Journal will cease
to be a newspaper and become a mere publicity organ for the AMS executive.
For years this, partial-responsibility has
been handled with care. This must continue.
Some persons give the impression they
could operate the Journal much more efficiently and fairly if they "only had the time".
With due deference to the undoubted ability
of these persons this, unfortunately for us all,
is not true. Our editors have had at least
some semblance of journalistic training and
have, contrary to rumour, a certain basic
intelligence.
We have tired of this down-the-nose pomposity on the part of some persons of authority. Our staff is doing a job as they think it
should be done. If the AMS executive do
not approve of our actions they should replace us with a staff in whom they have confidence. They should not tamper with our
day-to-day operation.
There have been mistakes. We have
sometimes gone off half-cocked. But is it not
better to fire pellets of partial truth than to
refrain from firing at all?
We have allowed the greatest freedom of
critical expression in our Dear Journal
columns. No letter has been suppressed.
A newspaper must be a constant sceptic.
When our barbs become bent we will not
hook a minnow of truth. Then will we lay
down our rods and retire, retaining at least
a particle of self-respect.
The Bird Cage
"Almost sinfully luxurious," say the advertisements of the new Buick.
I was quite overwhelmed by social significance of this advertising gem. It seems that
in these days of proletarian pride and ostentatious poverty that there is a definite stigma
attached to wealth. Indeed people with any
money or pretensions feel so guilty about
it that they spend all their filthy lucre being
psychoanalyzed so that they can spend money
without feeling too bad about it.* The only
hitch is that when they're through being
psychoanalyzed they don't have any money
left anyway.
What with everyone destitute from prosperity these days and the moneyed aristocracy
hanging out their complexes like Monday's
wash, we can expect new horizons and horrors in the field of guilt advertising.
Taking the cue from Buiclc we can expect more advertising like this:
"You will be almost painfully comfortable
in the new Pinball 8. You will be frightened
by the terrifying power of its engine, shocked
by the extravagant chrome fittings, nauseated
by its disgustingly rich upholstery, If you
don't puke all over the showroom when you
see the horribly new Pinball 8, we will pay
lor your first month's gas."
Hy HYFEN
Nash could have a field day \yith its bedroom on wheels:
"The New Nash, filled with lascivious
potentialities and sinful suggestiveness. Imagine the implication of taking a girl into your
bedroom when you go driving. Alienate,your
girl friend's father by taking her out in a
new Nash."
The B.C. Electric could get into the act
with a new angle of the "be nice to customers"
policy.
' "You will be thoroughly embarrassed by
the courteous B.C. Electric drivers, who do
Iheir utmost to make you uncomfortable by
i heir kindness. If you don't feel a heel by the
time you get off the bus your fare will be
refunded."
Or an ad from People's Credit Jewellers:
"Sicken your friends with one of our filthy big diamonds. Show your middleclass
lack of taste, degrade and cheapen yourself
with one of our unreasonably expensive
baubles."
Of course the perfume manufacturers
have been doing this all alone:
"You  too  can be seductive  and  sinful
with exotic, sensuous, tantalizing 'Lechery at.
Midnight' " Or: "Subtle as a brick-yard, sug-
(ontinued on Top of Page)
gestive as a freight-train, you too can be
brazen in "Harridan No. 5."
^fter \he advertisers have gone to work
on the well-to-do thejr can start on us.
For example;
"Be snobbish, elite and unbearable ih a
sweater from Eaton's. Infuriate your friends
with an indiscreet show of good taste." Or:
"Buy one of our sports coats and be ostracized
iq-to-ft -fcatari&Hy."
Tuesday, March 6, 1951
And in an age where proletarian sweat
is glorified:
"Be unbearably bearable with a jar of
Odorono. Madden your friends with your in-
offensiveness."
By the way, can any of you big firms use
a good idea man?
ly John Brockington
(Dhe Ubyssey presents article two in Mr, Brocldngton'si
ssffeg dUcussing the symphony orchestra as the focal point in
our city's cultural life.)
Weighing upon the conscience ot
the man who is chosen to lead
the Vancouver gyfasfrony is a
grave task: -to .entertain and educate an Inrproverlslied public
through the finest in both music
and performance.
Any man who 1« named conductor must Justify his actions by one
thing only; his deep nnd dedicated
love of all good music. Existence
for reasons other than nn Inner
eompuslon to make music beautiful to everyone who can be persuaded to listen, is useless. The
conductor who is interested In HIS
Interpretation of a popular master-
work as compared with renowned
readings of the same scores hardly reveals the primary requisite.
abvlouffly, In s.uch a man commitments to personal glory take preference over the serving of art for
the common good. Musicians are
fully as essential in our world as
are teachers and bus-drivers and
therefore pe:'sonal aggrandizement beyond the essentials ot living should not be their concern.
In their hands lies the building
of an enlightened public.
HOLLYWOOD   NEUROSIS
The star system is Hollywood's
own personal neurosis and ln the
fostering of music in this city
we would do well not to emulate
such a shoddy example. Tasteless
romanticism proffered by a flamboyant personality in an effort to
please the ladles must be forgotten in our search for the conductor
who Uvea because he loves music.
But how to find such a man?
A board of directors must of necessity concern itself with the formidable task of the orchestra's
business management and cannot
be expected to act as artistic advisors. Yet our previous "perman-
entef* conductor seems to have
been chosen because or his personal success with the board and
his popularity with a public which
had not the opportunity of losing
the small boy's love of a three-
ring circus. Such egotistical showmanship ls not a sound basis for
choice.

EDMONTON — (CUP) — An unauthorized edition of the Gateway,
University of Alberta undergraduate publication was published by
an anonymous staff, and distributed on the campus.
* The paper was not published in
Edmonton and contained ads from
as far away as Calgary and Leth
bridge. University officials, and
regular Gateway staff, are perturbed over the fuel that so many stu
dents seem to bave so much "time
and energy" and money, to spar:
for publication  of such  an   Issue.
The phony was a fairly passable
replica of the real Gateway. Headline stories proclaimed cancelled
classes, the inagiiratlon of athletic
scholarships, and advocated the
banning of fraternities from the
eampus.
Authorities suspect Medicine
sludenls are responsible I'or the
phony issue since '.Medicine facility shows were scheduled I'or Friday and Saturday, The paper also
ran an alleged expose of illegal
working of the Engineers' queen
elections.
Another   story   attacked   reports
of  cancer studies   made  by  reseat--

Recent HUP press releases
from Hong Kong tell of amusing sports happenings from
behind the Bamboo Curtain
lt seems the Chinese had Invited a Russian team In I'or a
friendly game of basketball.
When the Russians arrived
they grimly announced that
the game would be played by
International rules rather than
the decadent American rules
which their opponents had
been accustomed to use.
*"*P *r *r
The Ruwklet walked onto
. the court, bringing In their own
ball, which was just a shade
lighter than a bowling
ball. The bewildered Chinese
were trounced, losing considerable face In the process. When
the crowd protested, the Russian-manned loud- speaker
chided them for lack of courtesy to the visitors while guards
fingered their tommy • guns
menacingly.
After the game was over, the
Russians gave the Chinese a
lesson in how they should have
played.
Maybe the running commentary by the Russian announcer  t
went something like this: :
"Comrades, today ls a most
glorious occasion, and will
mark the triumph of International sport over decadent,
bourgeois American sport
which still lingers like a festering disease here in China.
The Russian team versed In
the vitalized, democratic approach to basketball, will correct neo-fascist tendencies ln
our Chinese proletarian allies,
who still cling ln ignorance to
the outmoded corrupting, unsportsmanlike Yankee rules."
*v       *v       *v
'The Rutulan team Is walking
onto the court. There ls the
People's Star Center, Ivan Ivan-
ovltch, Champion River-Thrower of Crimea, and three time
winner of the bronze Stalin
Award For Long-Distance Rivet

medal for Childbirth. He Is ll

prospered and excelled under

"The game bas started now.

No, he's dead. Obviously a

Tracksters Prepare
For Opening Meet
By FRED ROOTS
UBC ti'flcksters ore hard at
work again this season preparing for the first meet to be
held at Western Washington
April 7th.
From all reports UBC should
have a stronger sprint team
this year.
Sprinting this year are Don
Barrieau, Roily Lauener and
Eddie Clntls. Ed was one of
the top high school sprinters
last year but due to a pulled
muscle had to take it easy during the latter part of the season. If everything goes well
he should be in top form this
year.
* * *
Running distance for the last
time this season will be Bob
Piercy. Piercy, who has been
the outstanding distance run-
the outstanding distance runner for the last four years is
graduating this term.
Also running the distance
races with Piercy will be Jack
Lowther and Art Porter. Both
these boys have been running
cross-country this winter.
Gordie Oates and Harold
Bush'have been training for
the last two weeks and appear
to be ln good shape for the coming meets. A new runner at
UBO is Ho-Hlp-Po who hails
from Hong Kong.
He does the 440 and hurdles
besides throwing the .javelin.
*       *       *
One of the weak spots in the
team this year is the field
events. So far very few have
turned out for the discus, shot
and javelin events. A great
many more are needed, say
officials.
First meet to be held at
