HOOT MON, MacKINNON
WHAT QAME OVER YOU?
John MacKinnon, AMS treasurer, may have an adapt
hand when it comes to finances, but in the realm of B.C.
geography he falls a little short.
Monday morning MacKinnon went downtown to meet
the visiting Victoria College students, to drive them back
up to UBC.
Something must have gone wrong, however, for our
treasurer waited in vain at the CPR train depot.
Midwinter Repeats
Disputed Charges
Co-ordinator  Explains  Charge;
Answers Volkovich's  Letter
Charges that fraternities are packing sfudent council to
earn Housser Cup points were reiterated today by coodinator of
activities Jim Midwinter in replying to Friday's statement by
committee chairman Jack Volkovitch.
In replying to the statement, of
Volkovitch, Midwinter said, "First,
let me make it clear that I do nol
approve of any organized group
backing or putting up candidates
for campus offices merely for their
own selfish ends."
Midwinter charged that "lt lia»
become more and more apparent
that many fraternity mombers arc
motivated to take this active part
not to benlflt the Alma Mater Society or the university but to earn
points for the Housser Cup."
Midwinter said that this Is not
particularly harmful when an individual decides to contest an office and then requests his frater«
nlty to vote for him.
"It Is, however, very definitely
detrimental when a fraternity decides to earn a few Housser Cup
points (and also prestige) by placing one or more members on Students* Council and then looks about
for likely candidates within Its own
membership."
lie said that "there is a'together
too milch ugly rivalry among the
fraternities to decide who Is most
entitled to make contributions and
earn points towards the Housser
Cup."
In concluding his statement, Midwinter said that the "personal allegations cast upon myself hy Mr.
Volkovitch do not require any r:*-
ply. They are completely unimportant to the Issue under discussion."
(The Housser Cup, currently
held hy Beta Theta Pi, is presented to the fraternity which
amasses the greatest number of
points during the year on the haals
of contributions to the university
and their fraternity.---Ed. Note.)

Ballots
Must Be
Complete
Counting of the preferential
balloting will be held strictly to
the letter of the constitution in
the second round of elections
Wednesday and in the third
round February 21, elections
committee chairman Jo Anne
Strutt said Monday.
Ruling in the constitution governing election balloting states that
the preferential ballots must ba filled in completely or the ballot is
spoiled.
"Loaded ballots, that is ballot*
which have the first choice marked only, will not be accepted," MJis
Strutt said, "and ballots marked
only with a cross are spoiled as
well."
Even on ballots where only two
candidates', natnas appear, ttie
ohoices must be marked one afid
two, Miss Strutt said.
"These acan't naw restriction*,"
she said. "We are merely enforcing the rulings ot the constitution"
planned to bolster the faculty requests to the British Columbia government for an increased grant on
the university budget, are hanging
tire until the outcome of the official  action  is seen.
Brief will "undoubtedly" be accepted by the Board of Governors,
said a spokesman for the Faculty
Association, since the requests In
the brief are nothing more than
human needs.
REQUEST TO VICTORIA
Once tbe Board of Governors
have officially recognised the need
for an increased grant in the university budget to raise salaries and
take care of further necessary expenditures which haye arisen this
year, they will take the request
to the B.C. government, the spokesman said.
Spontaneous organisation of students last week as a result ot the
exposure of the university teacher's
plight in downtown newspapers
had planned to make their requests
known to the B.C. Government
through student demonstrations.
"Any student demonstration on
behalf of the faculty at this time
might be detrimental to the delegation which will soon be carrying
the case to Victoria," said a student spokesman.
DELEGATE  HAMBER
The delegation to Victoria will
probably  be  Chancellor  Hamber,
late last night:
Brief points out the need of at
least a $260,000 additional grant
to take care of existing costs even
before the increase in teaching
salaries ls looked  Into.
It points out the loss of funds
through tbe graduation of DVA
students, since the university received $150 extra per DVA student; the loss of funds through
decrease In enrollment while operating costs will remain constant
at best and the extra costs of the
new buildings on the campus which
will amount to about 3 per cent of
the costs of buildings.'
70  PER  CENT  INCREASE
It shows where the cost of living index has risen 70 per cent
since 1939 while salaries for the
teaching staff have risen only 15
per cent to 1949 and 25 per cent
to 1950.
The brief points out that the faculty cannot be reduced In proportion to decreasing enrollment without curtailing services. Some of
the courses would have to go.
The only alternative seems to
be, according to the brief, to close
down the faculties of Medicine,
Law, Pharmacy, and maybe even
Forestry, ln an attempt to offset
rising costs, If consideration does
not come from Victoria.
ALL-CAMPUS TALENT
Delta Sigma Pi Sponsors
Variety Show Friday Noon
Friday noon will bring the first
in a series of Variety shows sponsored by Delta Sigma PI, women's
honorary   sorority'.
Delta Sigma Pi originally planned to produce their own show,
with talent drawn from the ranks
nf the honorary sorority, but decided instead to call upon co-eds
from the campus at large.
The sorority has handled all .11
rangements  and   staging problems
and   plans   to   make   the   show   an
annual event.
Irene ('arisen, vlee-bresident ot
Iliis group of campus notables, ie-
leased  final  plans today.
Featured   in   the   hour-long   v.i> 1
ety show will be such well-known
campus musicians as MUla Andrew, soprano who will sing one
of the leads in Mussoc's forthcoming production of "The Combiners' and Dorothy McPhllllps, contralto who is playing a lead in the
same   product Ion.
Also playing prominent positions in the lineup will he Barbara Grant, pianist; a group of
highland sword dancers with hag-
pipe accompaniment, tap-dance
solos,  and a svelte chorous  line.
There will he an admission
charge of 10 cents for the show at
noon  In  the Auditorium.
abulators
An urgent call for coatoMlvins
tabulators has been Issued by the
UBC NFCUS committee.
Students will dissect and compile figures from 1,000 forms recently distributed amongst students In an effort to determine how
much It costs for them to live each
year.
Persons willing to assist in the
work are asked to attend a meeting today at 13:30 p.m. in the Men's
Club room of Brock Hall. *
Figures will serve as the basis
of a brief which the UBC group
plans to submit to the Federal
Government asking for a lowering
of costs.
The brief will also press for the
establishment of a number of
scholarships for students through
the local office of the national student group.
Sedgewick
Award Given
To Dr. Cooke
Rev. Dr. A. E. Cooke, minister
to Quallcum United Church, was
presented with the Garnett Sedgewick Award for the year 1949 In
Engineering 200 Friday.
Award is made annually by campus branch, Canadian Civil Liberties Union, for contributions to
civil liberties. Walter J. Camossl,
president of the group, made the
presentation.
In an Introductory speech, Dr.
Hoy Daniells, honorary president
of the OlA\ mentioned the work to
remove racial discrimination conducted by Dr. Cooke In his Sunday evening forums at St. John's
United  Church  In  Vancouver.
Speaking on the topic "Christianity and Civil Liberties," Dr. Cooke
said Christianity placed stress on
the Infinite worth of the human
personality.
"All is not well with Canadian
freedom," be said, citing the Que

Speaking of the problem of racial discrimination, he said "Christianity maintains that on the matter of intelligence and ability men
are not divided by a color line." The Wnmmw

We Mean Business
Chancellor Hamber, with the backing of
his board of governors, will likely carry tho
Faculty Association's brief on salaries to Victoria in the next few days.
It is to be sincerely hoped that this action
through official channels will awaken the
government to immediate positive action. In
the face of intimations from Education Minister Straith that the government has no intention of raising appropriations, tho governors will have to take a determined stand.
Meanwhile, students, who have got their
dander up over the issue, would be wise to
confine their activity to moral support of the
governors.
Action through official channels nas Iho
merit of demanding immediate attention. Furthermore, there is no point in attempting to
crucify the government before it has hud
time to make a fair and reasoned decision.
Should the government refuse as it may
well do if it feels refusal is possible, both the
profesosrs and the students will be forced
to take immediate and perhaps violent action.
Students should bear in mind, too, that
the issue ought to bo broader than that of professor's salaries.
Professor's salaries are the most pressing need—but one should remember the
warning issued by Dr. Ian McTaggert-Cowan
to them at a meeting of the B.C. Fish and
Game Council last week:
"Unless UBC's appropriations are increased, the university may have to cut off
most of its services to the outside community.
In fact, it will cease to be a university in
the sense in which we have oome to use thc
word."
This is no idle threat.
Stuffing The Ballot Box
The old gag about the political ward
hpeler who became exhausted from voting
all day may have a grim parallel in our
present elections.
We know of one case of a studeiat boast •
ing about having voted six times in the presidential balloting this year, and, if his boaits
ore even half .true, we can't see why he is
necessarily the only voter to pull such a stunt
AMS officials apparently thought they
had devised a foolproof method of establishing students' identities when they came up
with. the. Alma Mater card replete with photograph of the owner.
^P^t c^ers in charge of polling booths
ar*. apparently being so incautious as to accept AMS qards that have no pictures attached. |t might he unfair to penalize honest voters who have merely neglected to get pictures put on their cards, but we can see no
other path to an honest election.
Even so, we do not believe that the photo
system is foolproof enough to prevent dis
honest voters from casting more than one
ballot for the same candidate. We have also
The Bird
The other day one of the high-pressure
boys came thumping around the Pub looking
for Hyfen.
Cautiously admitting my identity I asked him what he wanted.
"I," he announced, playing quick gear
change with my arm, "am' campaigning for
the blood drive, and we want you to do a
funny column about giving blood."
"But," I protested jovially, "I wouldn't
know what to say because I've nevor given
blood.'
He just chortled ghoulishly.
Monday found me slinking furtively
r.bout lhe bushes at thc side of the Armoury,
pausing only to wring out my shirt, trying
to summon courage before I should plunge
myself into the bloodbath of screaming victims. I recalled the old medieval practice of
blood-letting. Very few people died.
Hours laier I plunged in, looking like a
Chiliiwack flood victim, and about as cow
posed as my last English essay.
"Please," I ventured, "I've com? to givo
my blood."
I felt a little heroic, like some Biblical
martyr about to be stoned to death, his eyes
uplifted to heaven in anticipation of celestial
reward.
Soon my pai^an persecutors were about
mc, armed not with stones, but with bright
shiny needles.
First they took a blood count. This entails making a bi,« bloody gash in thc end ol
your finger, and gently wringing your hand
out. After they've counted it to see whether
it adds up or nol they give you a big spiel on
blood types. If you possess the rare Rh factor
you're a valuable man, and likely as not
they'll pump you dry before stacking you in
lhe empties pile. If you're 00 or double
negative your blood will mix with anything.
heard of a student borrowing other persons'
cards, attaching his own photograph, and
claiming a new ballot.
And signatures on the polling sheets
serve no other purpose, apparently, than for
scrutineers to determine whether the number
of ballots tally with the number of persons
signing.
As we see it, our whole systexp is not
good enough. It must be changed at thu
earliest possible time, even if the new method
devised is more expensive than the present
one. Student councillors might toy with the
idea of using photostatic cards that have been
reproduced complete with signature and
photograph of the owner.
Meanwhile, with the present system
in use, we are willing to bet that any student
could vote as often as he chose, if he so choso.
More foolproof systems may be relatively
expensive in comparison with the present
one, but no matter what the price, they would
be cheaper than the costly process of usirtf,
stuffed ballot boxes to elect a candidate who
is not truly the people's choice.

i.e. high-grade concrete, martinis, ink remover etc. If you're H20 you're probably due
for a transfusion yourself.
Anyway if they like your b.laod they'll
be back fer more, only this time they spurn
your withered little manual extremity for a
big fleshy, juicy arm.
First they take a good solid chunk of
blood absorbent gauze and twist it round
your arm until it's well nigh popping. The
theory of this is that you're so absorbed «n
watching gangrene set in at the finger tips
that you don't notice the ice-pick stabbing
that's going on farther up the arm. After
they've drilled for a while and hit a real good
gusher they harness you to a piece of rubber
tubing, turn you over and drain you.
"Vampires, ghouls," I sobbed weakly
looking at the empty shell hanging white and
limp beside me.
"You're suffering from shock," they told
me as they corked the bottle containing my
all.
Here I was, prostrate on my back, on
tho great sacrificial altar of public hygiene,
waiting to get stacked like cord-wood with
the other corpses.
Tho nurse came with great quantities of
coke.
"Embalming fluid," I groaned, "yqull
make my face look nice, won't you. I want
to be a joy to my parents."
I came back though, and you may see
mc hovering ghostly and wraith-like about
the campus, haunting spiritualist gathering*,
pushing up tables and tinkering with ouija
boards. Sometimes you may even see mo at
lhe Pub whisking around silently jumbling
copy and stealing lunches. And if you should
rsk me what giving blood is like I'll reply,
'Oh, nothing to it." »
Letters To
Hide and Seek?
Editor,  The Ubyssey,
Dear «lr:
I wbuld like.to reply to Mr. Cy
McGuire, who made a report on
conditions in the caf recently, and
to Df. M,aoKehzle, who wrote to
The Ubyseey last* week with reference to prices in tbe campus eating places.
Mr.' MoGufre, obviously a typical Itwyer, ^wants to "legislate"
the troubles put of existence e.g.,
he suggests that we should stop
students moving chairs from one
table to another.- As an engineer
trained in direct thinking, I would
suggest that we stop chasing the
shadow and concentrate on the
p,robjem, if the administration
would purchase more chairs there
could be no need to move about the
few that are there already.
Dr. MacKenzie will probably say
that we cannot afford more chairs
—Mb letter stated that "... we
are bound to try and make these
(food services)   pay  for  themselves." In my opinion the administration ls not trying hard enough.
If they would put a stop to tlio
theft—the   theft   they   KNOW   is
going on—in the eating establishments,   there   would   be   enougli
money to pay for the extra chairs.
Yours very truly,

lt was my privilege to bo the
chairman of the meeting of Wednesday, February 7th, when the
Student Liberal Glub sponsored

Hon. W. T. Straith with the Teacher's Training Undergraduate Society.
if was unfortunate that The Ubyssey in its attempted impartiality could not have seen fit to announce the meeting either by un
appropriate news it cm up:>n this
occassion--or to have e\cii squeezed it in the Tween Classes notice
column as requested, ('niisideriiis?
how important our many ventures
are upon the campus—the student
drive for completion of the War
Memorial Oym—-Increased salaries
for teachers and professors—aid to

However, #due to the kind co
operation of the Pres. of the AMS
The Mamooks who painted the last

TREASURER
Phil Anderson
In view of rising costs, next
year's AMS dollar will have to
stretch further. My platform is
drawn up with this in mind.
I therefore propose:
1 A strict financial budget, eas
ing up as the year progresses.
2 Encouragement of clubs to
sponsor money making activities,
thereby developing greater responsibility and independence.
3 Stricter accounting from irresponsible groups squandering student funds.
4 Greater financial independence
for responsible societies using
funds efficiently.
5 Establishing an Advertising
Committee, using clubs and advertising students in Commerce, to
Increase activity attendance.
I offer no panaceas—only sound
business sense.
PHIL NDfiRSON
The treasurer, In order to deal
fairly with student activities, must
have more than a nodding acquaintance with the individual financial
problems of clubs, undergrad. societies and athletics.
He must have experience gathered by working with these activities and discussing their problems
with  other  members.
On this basis my platform ls
assembled.
It makes no wild-eyed promises
and is basted on an estimated |8,-
000 reduction  in  finances:
1 "New Deal" for WAD,
2 "Dollar a head''  for cohesive
undergrad societies and budgeting
autonomy.
3 Holding Vancouver to Its promise to provide adequate facilities at t'BO for empire games.
4 Permitting activities to "hold
over" any surplus.

2 Prevent pressure groups and
organisations from controlling
council policy from behind the
scenes.
3 A revised AMS constitution
which will provide for more effective undergraduate society representation on council.
4 Effective co-ordination between the 1H51 homecoming and

Tall Californian Hoopsters
Play Chiefs In Gym Today
locals take a 2-0 lead In the only
V&D first division game played
over the week-end.
Varsity, fired by the charge that
they were a "puny team" completely outclassed the South Hill 11 In
the first half with all players displaying heady ball playing tricks.
The locals opened the scoring
In the first 30 minutes when Bud
Dobson received a pass from Bill
Popowich and beat South Hill goalie Bernie Rosen cleanly In the nets.
Popowich scored what proved to
be the winner a few minutes later.
GLEIG   INJURED
South Hills StHbby McLean put
the losers within striking distance
of the winners with a goal shortly
before the cessation of first half
hostilities.
Inside right Don Glelg received
a bad shin gash early ln the game
and may miss next week's game.
Varsity scored three other goals
during the contest but referees declared them to be offside efforts.
Manager Gene Smith said following the game that Varsity has
a better than even chance of winning league laurels.
"If we manage to win our games
with Collingwood and South Burnaby Legion then we have a good
chance to win," said Smith.
"But the first thing to do Is win
the Imperial Cup final which goes
about two weeks from now.
"Collingwood and Burnaby play
Sunday at Callister in  the semis
and we meet the winner the following week."
LACKED FINISH
On Sunday's play Varsity lacked
finish around the goal-mouth but
did look good for a team which
has been idle for three weeks.
After the first goals had been
scored the locals tended to play a
defensive game with South Hill
unable to break through.
