taxes up In order to reduce the
national debt was compared by
the speaker to Bennett's Conservative regime of the depression

Publications at two Canadian Universities have appeared
attacking infringements of liberty on the part of university
administrations and the general public.
Unknown   students  at   the   Unl-<&	
verslty of  Manitoba distributed  a
four-page   mimeographed   "scandal
sheet''  attacking  those  concerned
with  student  administration.
Toronto University student newspaper "The Varsity'' appeared with
the entire issue devoted to condemning defects in civil liberties
in educational circles and public
affairs as a whole.
The unofficial U of M publication
which described Itself as a "teapot," attacked the administration
as having too much power over
students. It contained a personal
attack on university president Dr.
A. H. S. Qillson. Attacks were
made on the public relations committee chairman and the student
executive as well.
Toronto "Varsity" lashed out at
censorship of student newspapers
In Canada and the "fear" of being
tainted with red expressed In two
NFCUS conferences discussing the
Russian exchange visit. Charges of
"Insidious attacks by bigoted security-ridden conformists'' were
made upon educational grofcps such
as the Toronto Board of Education.

U of M's "teapot" charged the
official student organization "Man-
itoban" for falling to keep the
students informed "about everything which 'affects the president's
status at the university." Students
who published the paper described
themselves as students "who have
become disgusted with the niacin-
ations of the administration and
the student executive."
They promised more 'teapots"
..in  thefuture.
University  president  Dr.

be   handled   by   the   Students'

Now Or Never
A ftw weeks before Christmas the students
of this university went through a protracted *
debute about the present state of UBC athletic*. The one decisive factor that came out
of this otherwise fruitless debate,was the will
of the students to have a larger voice in determining how their money is to be spent.
However, as if in defiance of these sentiments, the Physical Education Department in
the persons of Robert Osborne and Athletic
Director Dick Penn went to an Evergreen
Conference meeting in Spokane and committed this university for another full season
of American football not only completely
ignoring the wishes of the student body, but
also the advice of the Men's Athletic Committee, which, they claim, has complete juris*
diction over athletics.
Student representatives on the Atheltic
Council should refuse to honor the agreement
entered into by Penn and Osborne. They had
no right to commit student funds without at
least consulting the Athletic Council.
It has now become obvious that the Physical Education Department is determined to
have full control of the athletic program. Students are invite dto participate in its administration on a strictly "seen but not heard"
basis. If we let this latest insult to our intelligence pass, students will have sacrificed their
last chance to salvage the athletic program
from domination by Osborne and company.
By ignoring everyone concerned with UBC
athletics, including the students who pay
the bills, Osborne has thrown down the gauntlet. It is up to us whether we are going to
be beaten down or stand up and fight.
Ineffective Education
The scholastic shortcomings of incoming
freshman classes are being revealed with
evergrowing intensity. The administration of
tills university is trying to rectify this situation by such indirect and ineffective means as
♦he proposed freshman ruling.
Meanwhile, our high schools are still ambling along in their own inefficient manner.
Utey are getting more "modern", less effective. High school students are now fed
'knowledge" in predigested packages. Newly-
designed streamlined courses teach them how
to "live effectively", i.e., to exist in conformity
with their similarly ignorant fellows
No wonder then, that university officials
view their task of kneading such material into
shape with consternation. It remains, how
ever, a mystery why the administration of
this university does not intercede more
strongly with the Department of Education
to have high school graduation standards
There is no justifiable reason for a course
in English grammar on the university level.
There is much less reason for the high percentage of failures which constantly dogs all
first year classes in English grammar.
If this university managed to force a reorientation of high school methods, it would
not only be doing a favor to its own potential
students, but also to those people who will
not carry on their education beyond the high
school level.

Dear Sir:
This is to be a letter of appreciation, ot acceptance and of

dent of the 8tud«nt Progressive
Conservative Club I extend my
slncerest tbanke and appreciation.
You would not pan Judgment on
a fellow man until you learned
all the facte. That was Just, John,
and I ealtue yon us « gentleman.
To Mr. Thomas, president of
the Student CCF Club I also extend my thanks and appreciation.
Pat, 1 accept your offer to debate
the Social Credit Party is made
up, in the majority, of decent,
honest folk, who, like you and 1.
gee a great evil where there .s
want in the midst of plenty. My
party, Pat, like your party, has
its fanatics and because We, like
you, are a democratic party, we
must fight them from within. Yes
Pat, I accept your offer to debate
or discuss your answer, or our
answer, or both answers to the
evil mentioned, but to discos or
debate as friends seeking a Just
.und adequate solution.
To Mr. Steinson, president of
the Student Libera) Club, I ex-^.
tend my sympathy. 1 am truly
sorry, Doug, that you are unable
to fathom the sincerity of your
Sriltlcal opponents. Possibly it kt
ecause of your youth; in all
probability much understanding
will come with maturity. Doug,
nothing la all good or all evil, all
right or ail wrong. Not even you
or I. Of course we accept your
offer, Doug. It is considerate of
you and your club to give us the
opportunity to show our fellow
students whut we have to offer.
To Mr. Oordon of Law I 1 extend my thanks for his offer,
which I accept. You see Moses,
1 too want to keep my party clean
as does the vast majority of our
membership. We know that a
small but vocal group have
brought discredit on us In the
past, >at times aided by our political opponents. It will be your
duty und my duty, Moaes, to see
that the Social Credit Party lives
up to the htgli social and moral
standards that we and the majority of our members have sot.
To you, tne reader of tills letter, I offer my thanks for rending tills far. I ask that you bear
with me while I offer this suggestion, if you iiave no polttlc.il
affiliation, make one — but only
after you learn all the facts about
•.ill parties. Get the fuels (tliore

To Mr. Thompson 1 wish to extend my sympathy. You .Bill,

Against Social Credit
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Mr. Thompson's statement that
the Social Credit party is against
International finance is on tbe
face of it illogical and confusing.
It Is only by such type of transactions that world trade can exist,
and world trade is essential if
countrlos are to exist beyond a
mere .subsistence level.
is the Social Credit part)
against international finance because it puts people in a position
to Influence foreign policy ror
their own pecuniary gain? Tills
objection can be said of several
private enterprises, not just international finance. Do the Social
Creditors, a non-Socialist party,
wisb to socialize trade and finance? If not, what do tliey offer
in its place?
Until the Social Credit party
clarifies its stand on these issues, we can only conclude tlu.it
its advocates on the campus arc
advancing a nonsensical economic philosophy.

Dear Sir:
I would like to take this opportunity to offer to the members
of the Social Credit Party on the

denying racism ami making goodwill a living policy iu their party.
Because they have done this I
will   cat   liunihle   pic   and   like   ii.
1 apologize for all the bud things
1 said about the Social Credit
Party on the campus. I did not
actually think they would do this.
1 was wrong.
However, their new policy will
always be a reminder to the
"lunatic fringes" that Burrortnd
young budding political organizations that tthey are outnumbered.
The lunatic fringe should be recognised for what it is and tolerated purely on the basis of toleration; in other* words toleration for the sake of toleration.
This sounds redundent and hypocritical but who Is to be the executioner? Not I
I apologise to Mr. Thompson as
well. If I have hurt his political
career and ruined his reputation
on the campus as he thinks I
have then I deeply apologise.

Jack Richards, the misanthropic hockey and boxing writer
for the Vancouver Sun seemsgto Invs it ;n for UBC. Last fall
this poison pen artist took pot-shots atatho football team, then
he swung to basketball and now with intent to do bodily injury
he is hacking at the prestige of our puck squad.
Little John, still dripping with the malice incurred after
years of following Winnipeg's sordid hockey fortunes, has
taken a sadistic glee in sneermg at the hockey edition of the
Thunderbirds whenever the opportunity has presented itself.
And the Birds have taken it.
This latest movement afoot to boot our club out of the
league can be directly traced to the jaundiced and bitter typewriter of the righteous Mr. R.
What this little man seems to forget is that the UBC club
is a collection of schoolboys playing in a league composed mostly
of ex-pros and juniors on the upward trail. The students, handicapped by the lack of home ice and other minor details like
study an dbooks, don't have the opportunity to take time off
at night to practice as faithfully as do their working opponents.
* *      *
Moreover, with the exception of the Kerrisdale Wheelers
and the Pilseners, both clubs so stocked with pros as to look
like the Canucks, the Thunderbirds have not done too badly
against the rest of the teams in this benevolent organization.
(After all fans, the Vancouver Commercial Hockey League's
avowed purpose is to assist minor hockey not to soil their lily
white mitts with money).
Then, why do the league officials worry about attendance
and the crowds that the Thunderbirds draw?
And that, students, is the only basis on which the Thunderbirds have been asked to leave the circuit—they don't draw
Of course, Mr. Richards claims it is the Thunderbird's poor
showing that calls for their ousting and cites the fact that they
have just suffered a 13-4 shellacking and that they reside in
the loop's basement as great corroborating factors of his preposterous statement. . ,
* *       *
Let's just look at the facts.
There is no ducking the 13-4 beating but there are a few
other factors that enter into it. The game(?) was played a
week ago Monday, the first day of the new term and some of
the lads were grabbed off incoming trains and busses and
whisked right to the ice-palace to play. Still a LITTLE (that is
the understatement of the year) loggy after their Christmas
repasts of turkey and ale, and not having donned the blades
for over three weeks, the boys were expected by Mr. Richards
to go out and beat the — out of the best club m the league.
Also we are forced to admit that the Birds do occupy the
cellar slot. They are 1 (one) point behind the Olympic Cafe
squad and have three games in hand—need we say more.
So, friends, we have a tempest in a teapot brewed by the
University's old pal, Jack Richards, for consumption by the
gullible league bosses. After all, the UBC record for the season
isn't too bad, they've won 4, lost 6 and tied 1, If that merits
their ousting from the loop then the big boys better hurry and
