 STUDENT DELEGATES SEE PREMIER
Greer Declines
Nomination For
Second Term
UBC LEGION Branch President
Tony Greer, declaring that he
wishes to "step aside and let another take the lead," has declined
nomination for a second term of
office.
Nominators Grant Livingstone
end Keith Ralston had asked
Greer to "continue his dynamic
leadership under which Branch 72
has gained a reputation as being
one of the soundest and most active in Canada."
In declining nomination, Greer
said he felt that the Legion should
be a training ground to prepan,
future leaders in dealing intelligently with the problems of Canadian veterans. He added that,
accordingly, he firmly believed
such an organization should not
have the same leadership year
after year.
Greer stated however, that he
would continue to take an active
Interest in Legion affairs.
PRECEDENT
"I sincerely hope that this polic>
which I am following will set a
precedent in the Branch of giving
other veterans the experience ot
leadership and of bringing new
blood annually to nead the organization," he said in conclusion.
Secretary Gordon Kersey, urging all Legion members to turn
out for Thursday's general meeting, stated that it would be om
of tiie most important ever held
by branch 72.
Declaring that the achievements
of this year's executive were
mainly foundational, he said that
the new officers will find a "sound
groundwork laid for the many
causes they may undertake for
the student vets."

No. 57
RETRO PRO'S RETAIN
MOCK PARLT SEATS
RETROGRESSIVE PROGRESSIVES remained in power
during Monday's Mock Parliament although they held only
12 chairs in the 41 seat house.
A bill to liberalize the "anachronistic liquor laws" was
introduced by government Member from Riviere du Loup,
Hal Daykin. Former Parliamentary Forum president Daykin
spoke in a broken English accent in between longer patches of
a straight English-Canadian speech, the result being questioned by opposition Members.
With   Jim   Wilson,   last   year's
Forum president, presiding as
Speaker of the House, the session
ran more smoothly than last fall's,
this in keeping with the plea of
the Member from Tranquility,
Sask., Rosemary Hodgins, <vMB
asked "for serenity, composure and
harmony during the new term."
GOVERNOR GENERAL
Prof. W. N. Sage, Honorary Presl.
dent of the Forum, acted as Governor General, reading the speech
from the Throne. Tne reply was
moved by Rosemary Hodgins and
seconded by Jack Graham who
spoke at length of his constituents
from Walkerville, Ont.
In accordance with parliamentary procedure, each party leader
spoke during the debate on the
Throne speech. Cliff Greer CCF
mentor and Leader of the Opposition, was followed by Joan Fraser,
Progressive Conservative "lend-
ress." Head of the LPP, Gordon
Martin, next "spoke his piece,"
succeeded by Bob Dodd, arguing
for the Liberals, "all two of us."
Daykln's liquor bill, long debated
was finally passed chiefly becauae
the members felt In need of a
recess.

Sage Speaks On
Diamond Jubilee
ONE OF THE best-known
authorities of British Columbia
ad Vancouver history, Dr. N.
Walter Sage; head of the history
deportment at the University of
British Columbia will address the
Vancouver Institute at UBC Saturday, March 16, on "Vancouver's
Diamond Jubilee."
Dr. Sage, who has been a staff
member of the university since
1918, is the author of several books
and many articles on Canadian
hi?tory, and has received widespread recognition for his works
on British Columbia.
Nations Organization was advocated by Williams when he introduced the second bill. Stewart
Chambers, Minister of Defence,
spoke on behalf of this legislative
effort.
Though those participating expected the government to fall on
the second bill since the 11 CCF
were definitely not allied with the
Retro Pros, the vote was in favor
of the motion.
Other members speaking included
CCF Bob Harwood, CCF Manson
Toynbee, Conservatives Grant Livingstone and Jim Argue, LPP Sid
Zlotnik, and the anonymous second
Liberal. Naturally, Retro Pro Les
Canty of child labor fame also was
vocal.
Major Changes In
Next Registration
ALL STUDENTS Intending to

procedure Is being considered for
September whereby students would
fill In their timetable stage by
stage ln consultation with heads ot
the departments concerned. Registration Is likely to take place ln
the Armouries.

Jokers Interest Ras
By Bob Mungall
FRENCH EX-BOMBARDIER VISITS UBC
University of British Columbia,
in spite of its hut-dotted campus*,
has a warm admirer in the person
of George Has, ex-bombardier in
ths French Air Force and now assistant editor of the French Press
Agency.
Ras, at the present time concluding the first part of an extensive
tour for his newspaper syndicate,
was a visitor at the university last
week and in his own words,
a "very interested" one.
"UBC doesn't have to apologize
for its army huts," said Ras. "Barracks are a familiar sight to
French students—and to students
almost anywhere, for that matter."
He added that some of those returning to universities ln France
had been forced to live temporarily in the underground shelters,
owing to the terrible lack of
housing.
Reis arrived on the campus Wednesday noon in timj to witness
the sod-turning ceremony performed by Chancellor Eric W.
Hnmber on the sitj of the new
Physics building.
WHAT DO JOKERS DO?
He was amused by the subse.
quent Joker-spunsored tree planting, wanted to know why Jokers
wore blue and yellow caps, and
finally asked, "Well, just what do
they do?"
Supplementing a reporter's halting explanation, hu replied, "I
sec, they intervene in everything!"
Following the ceremony, Ras
chatted informally for over an
hour with Allan Ainsworth in thJ
AMS president's office. He was
particularly interested in UBC's
form of student government, declaring that he admirvd the "organization" of student affairs,
which, he said, was not present
lo such an extent at French universities.
Among other questions touched
upon by Ras during the conversation were UBC's relations with
American colleges, problems uf
veturans attending university and
finally,  student  political  opinion.
Referring to this last topic, he
asserted that there was now a
marked reaction In French universities from the "Intellectual" Communism of pre-war days.
During a h.te (3 p.m.) lunch ii.
the Brock Hall dinning room, Ras
briefly sketched his past life and^
plans for the immediate future.
Born in Francv, he went to prep-
school in England and later returned to attend the Universitj
of Lyons, where he graduated. His
.studies at the Ecob Normale in
Paris were interrupted by his enlistment in the Air Force at the
outbreak of war in 1939.
LIAISON OFFICER

tame shortly after completion of
hi.s training as a Bombardier. From
th"n on he was occupied chiefly
in the capacity of liaison officer
b.twc.n tho ifoneral Staff and
remnants of the French Air Force
attempting to carry on training in
tho remoter parts of the country.
When he leaves Vancouver at
the end of this week, Ras will start
his tour of major American cities.
Then comes South America, which
he said he is really looking for-
• ward to, but he added that the
enjoyment of this last lap is going
to depend considerably upon the
transportation  facilities.
PERSONAL TRIUMPH: Arthur Hill, RCAF veteran, scores
a personal triumph in the Players' Club spring production
of "Berkeley Square," which continues tonigiht and Saturday
in the UBC auditorium. As the young American who solves
the mystery of time, and falls in love with an 18th century
girl, Hill again proves himself to be one of the most talented
actors in city circles.
Hill Travels In Time
MUMMERS MIX MODERN
AND QUEEN ANNE DAYS
THE CHARM and color that was London in the gracious
days of Queen Anne came to life across the footlights of the
UBC auditorium this week, when the Players' Club presented
their spring production, "Berkeley Square."
The play, written by a young American, John Balderston,
concerns the adventures of an American who comes to
London in 1945, and falls in love with the romantic tradition
of English history, particularly with the history of a Queen
Anne house which he had inherited.
In the production, Peter Stand-
ish, the American, solves the mystery of time, and moves backward
through the years to 1794, taking
the placa of a relative of his. The
play's conflict arises out of the
fact that Standish is faced with
the events as they happened, and
his desire to change them.
Arthur Hill, RCAF veteran, returns to tho UBC stage for the
first time since his 1942 success in
"Candida," as Peter Standish, and
scoivs a personal triumph in hU
characterization.
OUTSTANDING
Throughout the different acts,
Hill displays an innate sense of
tha theatre, a meticulous treatment
of t!v.! particular, and a complete
identification with his role,
From his first appearance, in thc
second scene, Hill dominates the
stage (as Indeed lt had been Intended he should), yet carefully
avoids  em opportunity  to overact.
Overshadowed by Hill, yet
showing a fresh talent is 18-year
old Norma Bloom, a freshette stu-
i'int, starring in her first Players
Club role, as the 18th century girl
with whom Standish falls in love,
despite.- tht' agencies of history,
NORMA COMMENDED
Mis-s Bloom exhibited a natural
charm and tahnt and will undoubtedly benefit from the experience, adding to her fresh approach,
tho stape presence, and other
mechanics of acting.
It is interesting to note that tin.
play's authjr, John Balderston,
wrote tiie story of Standish, after
he, himself, had visited London,
and fallen in love with tradition.
Also, although the scenes are set
for part of the time In 1945, one
character seems free to roam froni
Londo n to New York at will, and
there is little hint of wartime
austerity.
PRODUCTION
Authentic stage designs, fashioned by Frank Vyvyan, and the
Queen Anne costumes were In
good taste, and aided in the
magical illusions of the production.
Mrs. Elsie Graham, the club's
drama director ,is to be complimented for the results attained
with a difficult selection.
In the supporting cast were
George Baldwin, who as Tom Pettigrew, portrayed a rather typical
well-born cad, and John Nieuwd-
dorp, in the role of Throstk, Joyce
Ha man, and Beverley Wilson.
Weakness of thc play centred
mainly around the fact that many
of the supporting parts were familiar friends of playgolng audiences.
Tiie ne'er-do-well son, cursing and
gambling, the vasclllating suitor
who obviously doesn't stand n
chance, and the quaint old English
housekeeper are yearly visitors to
thc UBC auditorium.
Lighting and sound effects could
have been better, but this was a
minor fault in what promises ti
L'j a  very successful production.
The cast will repeat their per*
formance Friday and Saturday
nig'its. and will go on the road
following spring  examinations.

DISCUSS GYM CAMPAIGN.
AT INFORMAL SESSION
THREE STUDENT REPRESENTATIVES from the
University of British Columbia held an informal interview
with Premier John Hart in Victoria Thursday morning in
connection with the UBC War Memorial Gymnasium Campaign.
The delegates, Allan Ainsworth, president of the Alma
Mater Society, Tony Greer, president of the University
Branch of the Canadian Legion, and Mardee Dundas, editor-
in-chief of the Ubyssey, discussed the financial and educational aspects of the campaign in an informal session at the
Parliament House.
AMS To Check
On All Campus
Club Speakers
STUDENT COUNCIL is taking
steps to check unratified club
speakers. According to Sidney
Flavelle, AMS secretary, too many
clubs have been inviting speakers
to the campus without first informing council members. "This,"
said Miss Flavelle, "is in violation
of Article 15 of the AMS Constitution."
ARTICLE 15 ... .
. . If any subsidiary organization
of the Society desires to invite a
speaker other than a member of
the Society to address University
students it shall first apply in
writing to the Students' Council
for permission to do so.
The Students' Council shall have
absolute discretion as to the granting or refusing of such permission.
"This arrangement is necessary,"
stated Miss Flavelle, "to insure a
turn out that would be in accordance with that which the speakei
has been used to."
Shell Oil Offers
UBC Fellowships
ONE OF THE most valuable
fellowships ever to be offered for
graduate study at UBC, the Shell
OU award, will be given for the
first time during the 1946-47
session.
The donation is made to a graduate of any approved university
and is tenable at UBC for study
and research leading to a graduate
degree in chemistry, chemical
engineering, mechanical engineering or physics.
It is valued at $750 and full
tuition, plus $250 for equipment
and travelling expenses connected
with the research study.
Full name of the grant will be
The Shell Oil Fellowship in Research. Those interested should
consult the Registrar's office for
further  details.
CAMPAIGN
CAMPAIGNING for the Memorial Gym fund has had repercussions as far off as Ontario.
On learning of the drive, Gordon
Carter, Science '49 of Queens'
University, dug deep ln his pants
pocket and produced a lead nickel
which he subsequently mailed to
the gym fund committee.
The students also arranged interviews with Victoria business
men and service clubs.
A gift of $25,000 from Premier
Hart will help to swell the Gym
Fund, which now has $55,000 of Its
$500,000 objective.
PRESIDENT
Here in Vancouver Dr. N. A. M.
MacKenzie pledged his continued
support of the student-alumni
campaign.
"I know of no better way to pay
tribute to the thousands of students and graduates from all parts
of the province who served their
country in the two world wars,"
he said.
He pointed out that every dollar
invested in the gym will mean important and direct returns in terms
of service to the youth all over the

DVA Seeks Increased
Veterans9 Allowances
WHEN THE DOMINION government makes its decision
on the plea of student-veterans to boost their allowances, it
will take into consideration that quite a few veterans are
married men, with families to support.
Thus affirms Dr. S. N. F. Chant,
present head of UBC's psychology
nnd philosophy department and
formerly Canada's first director-
general of rehabilitation.
"The give'i-nmcnt is giving the
matter serious consideration," he
told the Ubyssey. "It is hard to
make a definite statement now as
the cost-of-living figures are not
yet thoroughly analyzed. Any
move the government makes will
be based on the results of that
analysis."
Dr. Chant emphasized that "Veterans should be able to apply
themselves to study without worrying about the problem of making
ends meet."
"If it is shown that the grant is
inadequate to provide for optimum
study conditions, naturally I would
be in favour of increasing it," he
added.
PRAISES VETS
Praising the high quality of student veterans attending UBC and
other Canadian Colleges, Dr. Chant
pointed out that, in his opinion,
they constitute the greatest of
Canada's natural resources with
qualities helpful to its development
already proven by their service,
A man intimately connected with
the birth of Canada's rehabilitation
set-up, he believes that it has been
more successful than anyone predicted.
HINDRANCE
"Given satisfactory economic development," Eh-. Chant remarked,
"it should be a highly efficient
program. At present the prevailing problems of unemployment
and housing hinder it. As those
conditions improve so will the rehabilitation plan." THE UBYSSEY, Friday, March 15, 1946, Page 2
BIGGER AND BETTER BOX OFFICE
Among the summer projects which next
year's Student Council will work on for
the benefit of all undergraduates could well
be placed plans for an addition to the Quad
Box Office.
For the sake of a comparatively small
expenditure of money and scarce building
materials the existing, outdated structure
could be made vastly more efficient as a
distribution centre, thus taking the strain off
the Alma Mater Society offices in Brock
Hall and reserving them for less-routine
tasks.
Some may doubt the advisability of building up the Box Office on the present site.
As long, however, as it continues to be
conveniently located to both parking lot and
bus depot and is centred along the busy path
that leads to Administration Building,
Health Office, Cafeteria, Auditorium, Legion
Office, Book Store, and Armoury, the present
location is the ideal one.
This year many students waited in the
rain to reap the free ticket harvest from
their AMS passes while, because of lack of
facilities, one lonely ducat dealer tried to
speed the impatient line on its way.   At
IT'S SPRING
Strenuously blue skies, bluer sea, bursting
buds, and flowers, and lush scenery all
wrapped up in air that smells as though it
had been washed in the rain and hung out
in the sun to dry — these are all indications
that the season of spring is just around the
maypole.
It is safe to boast that the unprejudiced
observer, seeing the University of British
Columbia campus at this season, would agree
with critics who have for years been sighing
rapturously that our campus is the "Miss
Canada" of the dominion educational insti-
• PEEPER'S   PAPERS
I HAD just finished perusing the shipping
intelligence some time ago and was on the
point of procuring the meteorologist's report
for the day when Flint and Steadfast strode
into the Alcove and announced that they
were proceeding to' a symphonic concert
which, happily, was being presented on the
campus that afternoon.
They requested me to accompany them,
which I did not without some regret, for I
was anxious to arrive at an understanding
of weather conditions on the high seas beyond our coasts and to learn which vessels
were approaching and which were outbound
from our ports.
My friends frequently make sport of my
concern in this weather; yet I can verily say
that in the stormy seasons of years past I
have foretold the doom of many a ship off
boisterous Cape Flattery.
Nevertheless I fell in with them and we
entered the hall together. At the beginning
of the concert an incident ocurred which has
entered my mind numerous times within the
past fortnight. The conductor, who was a
guest of the Society from the United States
of America, took his place on the podium,
faced his audience and proceeded to conduct
them in their national anthem.
I noticed with some embassassment the
looks of surprise and dismay which crossed
and recrossed his face as he beat the measure
of the piece. His surprise, of course, was
occasioned by the fact that not a sound
reached him from the audience.
Quite possibly he had for tiie first time
witnessed a group of citizens who were unwilling to join in singing their national anthem. I sensed that as the tune ran through
its measure the implications of the situation
forced themselves upon him in ever greater
intensity, for he summoned the final chord
in a most peremptory and dour manner, spun
immediately about and began the concert.
In my own defense let me say that I am at
such times they must Have wished for a
larger Box Office with multiple wickets.
A new structure, built around the existing
backbone to save materials and labour, could
be designed to serve not only as a distributing centre for tickets of all kinds, but also
such things as Frosh regalia. On special
occasions it could be used as an information
booth. Its present use as a notice-board
would not need to be curtailed; in fact, it
could be accererated.
Once many cubicles were provided other
uses would be found for them, perhaps as
polling booths that would help to boost the
vote in AMS elections. A study of the sad
percentages using the franchise in this
year's elections would almost alone justify
enlarging the Quad Box Office.
At any rate, any expenditure of AMS
money which will provide facilities to allow
all students to make better use of their
passes should meet with approving nods
from Council.
If the project proved acceptable to both
Council and Administration an addition
might be constructed during the lull between
Summer School and the first appearance of
September's green tide of Frosh.
tutions.
We at least have the honor of being the
first students to sight spring robins, crow at
crocuses, and shed our winter overcoats.
In general, when we can look at the blue
and green scenery around us, which out-
landscapes most artist's conceptions of landscapes, and begin to carol truthfully "Oh
what a beautiful morning" long before other
university students have doffed their snow-
shoes, we should count our blessings, as the
old saying goes.
Happy Spring to you.
BY PEEPER
no time vocal but I was surprised that Flint
did not sing, for I have heard Flint deliver
many a ditty in a most excellent voice.
Steadfast I know to be .active in choral
circles. However let me add that Flint did
sing gustily "The King" — was in fact the
only one in our part of the assembly who
did.
Canada had at one time, I am told, an
anthem known to all but still sung by only
a few This displeased a late Governor-
General of a literary bent who set about to
compose a new version, thinking erroneously
that the fault lay in the lyric. His error of
judgement was one of the greatest ever
committed, for it has resulted in a greater
measure of vocal distemper than has ibeen
heard anywhere in the world.
It has even caused a loyal few to cease
their refrain, for their words clash with those
of their neighbors. There is a moral to be
drawn from this, of course. Never change
the words of a national anthem.
There is much talk these troubled days
concerning national sovereignty. States, it
is said, must surrender a portion of their
national sovereignty and make it available
to a world organization, for only then can
we achieve peace in the world. Canada's
delegation must have enjoyed a sense of
security at London, for Canada has thrown
national sovereignty to the winds long, long
ago. Indeed it would appear that the concept
at the citizen's level was scattered about the
time that Canada came into being.
As a remedy to this deplorable condition,
I suggest that the Ubyssey publish in a
future edition the words of our approved
national anthem. Each student should then
commit the verses to memory and should be
examined on them. The standings should
then be entered on the transcript of each
student by the staff of the Registrar's office.
It would no doubt take some time to do this,
but believe me, it is all too necessary.

FASCISM
Articles appearing in the daily
newspapers   suggesting   that   uni
versity students are "bordering
dangerously on Fascism," tend to
make our prospective subscriber
raise a quizzical eyebrow —and
tighten a purse-string — that same
purse-string that must be loosened
to swell our building fund.
It is the duty of every student
to   avoid   any  criticism-provoking
actions that  might  reflect  on the
good  name of his Alma Mater.
GRATITUDE
To all those who have worked
so hard on the gymnasium drive
we owe a debt of gratitude, a debt
that will be paid in full by the
deep appreciation of future university students,
Then will all our labour seem
worthwhile — then we may sit
back and admire the result of our
efforts. The caution money we
donated, the subscribers we interviewed, the advertising campaigns
we supported, In fact any small
sacrifice we made will seem small
Indeed.
To reach a successful goal in
this campaign, we must not let
Inaction and silence intervene.
Therfore, it is our responsibility
as students to consolidate our efforts, and make that War Memorial
Gymnasium a realization,

A RECENT Canadian Campus feature exchanges
flaunted legends of faculty ghosts, cows in bell towers, and
other yarns that are a part of the distinctive atmosphere of
certain universities.
When it comes to tradition, UBC may also throw her
weight around. As proof, here are a few short exerpts
from her saga.
A hushed-up situation thut is
causing a furore in zoological
circles is the multiplication of the
university's sheep  flock.
For nearly a decade the number
of the herd has been increasing
each spring, entirely ignoring the
absence of any rams in the flock.
Up to now the news has been su-
pressed, due to its shattering effeel
on the established concept of the
animal kingdom.
HEMAPHRODITIC
Eminent biologists who have
been consulted admit bafflement.
They can pass no opinion on the
matter except that "the beasts
aren't behaving In a sheepish
manner." It's anybody's guess
whether the sheep are hemaphro-
ditic, or have been dividing and
reproducing like amoeba.
One scientist - philosopher, Dr.
f'olvox Bromo, believes it Is a
radical application of "Survival of
the Fittest," and marks the beginning of dlstatorshlp over man
by the proletariat animals.
SARDINES
Fast booming traditional is tire
daily sardining on the campus
busses. The vehicles have been
nicknemed King Oscar's with good
reason.
LETTERS To
mis,
        The Editor
No on-e is surprised nowdays to
see a bus move slowly up the
boulevard, sides bulging; and often
with several bodies jutting sideways from the th'e roof of the
vehicle like fleshy flying
buttresses.
AGGIES SOIL
Th'e accidents that overcrowding
brings on has given soil to the
legend of where good Aggies end
up when they die.
As the story goes, one morning
a badly listing bus stopped at
Acadia Road to take on one very
slim passenger. Space was so
cramped that occupants had to
breathe in shifts, but nevertheless,
the throng moved uneasily to accommodate him.
CHEMICALS
One little Aggie, not so tough as
the rest, screamed despairingly and
went down in a tumult of heaving arms, heads, and shirt-fronts
The end came quickly—a smell of
nitrate, a puff of smoke, and surrounding Artsmen were baring
their heads to a handful of greyish
powder on the bus floor.
The grains were quickly scooped
up by the nearest Aggie, to be
salvaged for use on the farm after
the spring planting.

Dear Madam:
Would you be so kind as to print
the following few lines to a fellow
student?
Would the lady (?) who borrowed (?) my umbrella from the
girls' washroom of the Library
Monday, March 11 be so good as
to return it?
I am getting slightly wet under
Vancouver's liquid sunshine and
would appreciate very much the
return of my property.
This is the third umbrella that
I have lost and I am getting just
slightly annoyed at the expense
and trouble of procuring new ones
each time.
I hope this letter will appeal to
this lady's (?) sense of honor and
that very shortly I will have the
pleasure of seeing it hanging in
the Library basement.
It is plain black with a clear
plastic handle. I'd know it anywhere.
Sincerely yours,
Velma Greyell.

Week-end   Review
And Preview By lee gidney
THIS WEEK a Mock Parliament
was held here at UBC. It was
preceded last Friday by a Mock
election in which any resemblance
between the ballot-box and a
waste-basket was far from coincidental.
The actual news-details of these
shenanigans of the Parliamentary
Forum will be reported suitably
in the news pages of this paper.
Our divine right, as a columnist,
is to record our personal impressions.
Sitting in front of us at the
Election were three veterans who
shall be nameless, but whose remarks unfortunately are not odorless. These three attempted to
introduce tha Japanese nonsense
whenever any of the candidates
veered even slightly in that direction. They especially thought

all equally untenable in the light

There are things wrong with this
idea of course. Its wastefulness

they had not ruthlessly cut away

But this is too realistic a conception. So instead we have the
Democratic circus, the Mock Parliament, with its passionate idealism, its cynical demagoguery; its
manipulation of power, cavorting
before the electorate, amusing
them, and blinding them to the
fact that our Parliament represents not man, but money; hiding
from them the peaceful, happy
and significant lives they might
live if government were run by
men trained to perform its not too
intricate functions in a really
functional and not evasive manner.
LETTERS   To   The   Editor
Dear Madam:
The ardent defender of the B.C.
Electric in last Tuesday's issue
of the Ubyssey seems to have
overlooked several details in computing the company's profits and
losses.
When a utility company is granted a franchise they are expested
to serve the public. This does
not mean skimming off the cream,
but taking the losses as well as
profits.  There  would be  a great

many areas ir. Vancouver without
power, light and transportation if
the company were not forced to
supply these services.
It should not be necessary to
beg for a reduced fare, it is up to
the provincial government to
force the issue. In view of the
number of voters in the university
this would do them no harm,
the university area is out of tht
city limits, I ask them to look at
the arrangement in North Vancouver, where settler's tickets are
used, entitling' the passenger to a
transfer to Vancouver for 7c.
There they have a far greater
overhead, and a longer run. Surely we are entitled to the same
privilege.
Ferry aptly pointed out that the
losses sustained by the line were
largely the result ot serving th?
residents at nignt. Is it up to the
students to make up these losses?
It should bn plain that the profit
from the bus line is not all the
P..C. Electric receives from the
students. In the morning peak
period the enrs going to Sasamat
would be nearly empty if it were
not for the "grown college students," students who according to
the B.C. Electric would be justified in asking for reduced rates on
all other goods and services in
Vancouver if they were given a
reduced fare.
How many more "grown college
students," than high school students could the B.C. Electric jam
into a street car? Certainly not
enough to make up for the inequality in rates. University students do not ask reduced rates on
other services, but have been
given them—witness the theatre
rates.

Back Canada's War Effort
CONSISTENT return of the Liberal candidates to
provincial and federal office during the war by Quebec voters
was proof that French-Canada was not opposed to the war
effort, declared Louis-Rene Beaudoin, Liberal MP for
Vaudreuil-Soulanges, addressing International Relations Club
last week.
smoker for      Students' Council  summer jobs
Citing this record at the polls as
a fact that had escaped the observation of the other provinces,
Mr. Beaudoin pointed out: "The
party that had declared war received support of 62 of the 65
Quebec members in the 1940 election."
NOT "LESSER EVIL"
Replying to a suggestion from his
audience that French-Canadians
voted for Liberals as "a lesser
evol," the speaker stated that candidates opposing the Liberals In
Quebec had described the Whigs
there as being pro-British, pro-
Empire and pro-conscription.
Opposition members in the
other provinces, ne said, had described the Liberals as being anti-
conscription, anti-Empire and pro-
Quebec.
He asserted that Independent
candidates ln Quebec, actually
Progressive-Conservatives, had had
a platform worse than that of the
Bloc Populalre.
Denying that the Liberal party
had conflicting platforms for
Quebec and the rest of Canada,
Mr. Beaudoin declared that his
party's Canada-wise program was
the cause of its success.
LACK OF KNOWLEDGE
The speaker opened his address
on "The Building of Canadian
Unity" by stating, "We do not
know each other well enough."
He said French-Canadians did not
travel enough, 85 per cent never
leaving Quebec. On the other
hand, he contended that too many
Canadians did not accept the fact
the a larije part of Canada's population is French.
Groups whose aim was to anglicize the French-Canadians were
a hindrance to unity, he declared.
Attempts to make English the sole
language ln Canada had failed.
He charged the press with fostering disunity by playing up sensational statements by members of
both groups.
Anti-war feeling in Quebec was
enhanced, Mr. Beaudoin said, by
premature charges of disloyalty
by non-Quebeckers, especially in
Toronto.
STUDY CAMPAIGNS
He told the IRC that the best
way to learn what was going on
in Quebec was to follow campaign
speeches made there and then
study election results.
Discounting the attitude that
anti-British feeling was general in
Quebec, he said a few spokesmen
gave an extreme view.
Amount of English spoken by
French-Canadians varied with the
number of English-speaking people in their environment. He urged
a greater knowledge of both languages by all Canadians.

Amends Sentence
The Sentence passed on Ronald
Haggart by the Discipline Committee under Article 12 of the
AMS constitution was amended by
Student Council at its meeting last
Monday night.
Council removed the $2.50 fine,
but reprimanded Haggart for his
"breach of confidence."
The sentence upon Haggart had
been levied by the Discipline Committee after he sent to a downtown newspaper, for which he is
the campus correspondent, a story
on supposed liquor drinking at »
recent Brock Hall function.
Council upheld the section of
the sentence that deprives Haggart
of his AMS pass for the rest of
this session.

JUST TALKING SPORT
'TWAS OVER IN THE GYM the other day that a few
of the fellows were talking about sports and basketball in
particular and they were saying that we certainly had a great
team here at UBC this year. Of course, the object of all
this conversation was the pride and joy of Varsity, the Blue
and Gold's Thunderbirds.
Yes, to say the least the boys have put on an impressive
show. It's nothing short of a cryin* shame if this year's team,
probably one of the best teams UBC students have seen in
ages, will not be able to take a crack at the mighty Dominoes
from across the rippling waters of the Gulf of Georgia.
Maybe we're a little too proud of our boys but we have a
right to be after what they have done this season.
We're curious to see just how many points the great
Norm Baker would have snapped off under the guardian
wing of one of our 'Birdmen. We're curious to see how many
points our Sandy could ring up. We're curious to see
whether Bob Osborne's technique and the boys that we have
this year to make use of it could beat the highly touted
Dominoes.   We even dare to think they might.
The 'Birds Have A Future
But then we began thinking about the Thunderbirds of
the future. No, none of the other Blue and Gold squads have
won in their divisions this year. It didn't look too encouraging
until we started looking into those teams a little more closely.
We had to change our mnds. The 'Birds of the future do
seem to show great signs of promise.
One of those stars of the future will be a young eighteen
year old sophomore by the name of Pat McGeer. "The Kid"
was the second highets scorer on the Thunderbird squad this
year and this is only his second year with the team. Another
three years under Bob's hand should produce a great scoring
ace.
There will still be some of the other old reliables with
the squad next year. Ritchie Nichol and Hal McKenzie are
only in their second year and their first year with the team.
The happy, hard-working "Peanut" Weber will be back.
The Harry's, Kermode and Franklin will return. There's the
basis of a great team.
No Shortage Of Help
From the minor teams on the campus, come's no end of
help. The Senior A Chiefs have done a great job this season
and only lost to the Pirates in the fifth game of the finals
because they have not played half as many years as the other
team and because they played at King Ed.
Take boys like Herb Capozzi, the popular pivot man of
the Chieftains. Herb has been high scorer nearly every game
this year and it's not just coincidence. Bob Haas has played
a great game in the forward slot and Gerry Stevenson and
Fred Bossons make one of foe smoothest possible guard
combiations. They ought to. They've played on the same
team with each other for the last five years.
There are others on the Chiefs quintet too but the
younger teams also boast some stars of the future. One of
those fellows is a young man by the name of Gordy Selman
who is performing for the Inter B's this year. Gord snapped
off 23 points in one contest during the season.
Things Look Good
And then there is "Long John" Forsythe, Reid Mitchell,
Dick Ostrosser, Cam McLeod, Ian Blake, Cliff Henderson,
Gordie Lade — oh, you could go on forever like this and
never manage to remember all the boys that will be trying
out to represent the Blue and Gold in inter-collegiate ball in
the years to come.
Yea verily, we've got a great team of Thunderbirds this
year. But it would also seem that there will be a great bunch
of boys coming up to take over where this team leaves off.
Let's hope so.

SKI CLUB ENTERS INTER-COLLEGIATE MEET
UBC Travels To Martin Pass For Big Contest
Friday, March 15, 1946
'■M9Mi
Over Week-end Against American Universities
TWELVE of UBC's best skiers are on their way to Martin Pass, Washington, where
a two day intercollegiate ski tourney will be held to-morrow and Sunday afternoon.
"Our boys," who will compete with the U of Washington, U of Idaho, U of Oregon,
and Washington State college in the downhill and slalom events, will have a decided
advantage over the American colleges in that the present team has entered every major
ski event this year and have the necessary practise behind them to place well up in the
winning circle.
Among those going from UBC
are Sandy Martin, Gordy Cowan,
Doug Fraser, Don Anderson, John
Frazee, Fred and Walter Roots,
Gordy Hall, Arnie Teasdale, Gerry
Lockhart, Bill Howard and Jack
Skinner. These lads will be divided into teams of six men each.
Martin Pass is situated just outside of Seattle and the skiing
there is reported very good.
Sandy Martin, Gordy ,Cowan
Doug Fraser, John Frazee and
Gerry Lockhart placed well up oi>
the finish list at the Western Canada ski tournaments and will have
some very valuable racing experience behind them.
At Mt. Baker last week-end, th*
above group entered In the Pacific
Northwest tki tournament ant*
although the course was strange
to them, showed the American
skiers they still can ski at UBC.
Jack Skinner will be one of the
strongest contestants representing
the old Alma Mater. Jack placed
first in the Dam Downhill last
week-end on Grouse Mt. (Dan.
does not describe the course—that
is the proper name).
However, Gordy Cowan will
have to pull up his socks if he
expects to place at all this weekend. Last Sunday on the downhill event on Grouse, ha fell and
gained the spectacular time of six
minutes 34 seconds for himself.
Skinner, the winner, took 58 seconds. Which just goes to show
that you can't win all the time.
The important thing is that the
boys will be out to do their best
which is all we expact of them.
P.S. Last year's ski team under
the direction of Fred Roots walked
away with this event and were
way ahead of the American
colleges.
SUNSHINE AND POWDER SNOW—A perfect discription
of a Sunday afternoon skiing on the North Shore mountains.

Victoria Report
Held Astounding
IN REPLY to an article which
appeared in a recent issue of a
Victoria paper, the UBC War
Memorial Gymnasium Committee
denied reports that the university
is unwilling to arrange a five-
game series between the Dominoes
and Thunderbird basketball teams.
In an official release today the
committee stated that attempts to
stage such a series have been made
on several occasions as part of the
campaign to raise funds for the
1500,000 Memorial Gymnasium.
ASTOUNDED
Mr. Robert Osborne, jHhyslcai
education director and coach of
the Thunderbird team, declared
today that he "was astonished"
when the article was shown to
him.
"The reported strength of the
Dominoes club does not interes*
us in the least," Osborne said. "We
would be perfectly agreeable to
play a five-game series, with two
in Victoria and three in Vancouver."
Mr. Osborne went on to say that
"no such proposal was made by
the Dominoes manager. Mr. David
Nicoll, when interviewed last
week-end in Vancouver."
"The Dominoe. Hid not appear
to be in the least interested in
furthering thu University Mem.
orial Campjign," he added.

fund when 2000 or more skiers
and spectators climbed up Grouse
mountain to witness a similar
spectacular display. This year,
Dave Spence, the chairman for the
proceedings, promised double or
triple this amount and will attract
skiers from till parts of the Pacific
Northwest ski territory.
The giganlic slalom race will
start at the top of the Big Hill,
alt. 4200 ft., and drop down to the
botton of the Nose-dive—a vertical drop of some 900 feet. Tho
bottom part of the course lies on
a hill of about SO degrees and will
require real skill on the part of
the skier to navigate the run
safely.
The jump will be fixed up during the next few week-ends and
will be capable of leaps up to 190
feet.
Invitations to this event have
been sent to ski clubs at Oregon,
Washington, and clubs in Western
Canada. More tnan 150 entries are
expected and it will be one of the
top-flight meets of the year.
Don't forget, April 7, and all
proceeds go to the War Memorial
Fund.

thought of that.   Out he goes."
YOUNG 'BIRDMAN-Here is one
of the younger Thunderbirds who
has been helping the 'Birds no
end during their days of conquest.
He is Pat McGeer whose 110 points
made him the second highest
scorer on the Thunderbird squad.
He was in there again yesterday

Swinton, Bob Esplen, O.mie Hall,
Malcolm Tapp, and Jack Dornan.
Everyone who has watched these
I oys in action will agree that with
the sholmaking of Dave Dale, Bob
Plommer, and Dick Hinley,
Marine Drive will really be in for
a rough time. Bob Esplen, who
knows the ceur"e likv une back of
his hand, should turn into the
black horse and come blazin/;
through with some pretty sharp
shots of  his own.
Marine D:ive will offer men like
Jack Ellis, Bruce Howard, anci
Monty Hill who guarantee to make
things a trifle stiff for th? University Divoters.
The match starts at 11 o'clock
Sunday morning.

Nanaimo Club Takes
Hockey Squad 9-4
By DON McLEAN
NANAIMO — Nanaimo Clipper*
goalie, Bev Bentley, personally
wielded the shears as the Coal
City sextet, B.C. Junior champions, trimmed the UBC Thunderbirds, 9-4, in a War Memorial
Gym fund ice hockey exhibition
here Tuesday night.
The score was no indication of
the run of play as the 'Birds at
times completely controlled the
puck. Only sensational goal-
keeping by Bentley and lack of
finish In front of the net kept the
UBC scone down.
CANCEL SECOND TILT
The second game of the series,
scheduled for Wednesday night in
the Vancouver Forum was cancelled when the university officials
could not reach an agreement with
the Exhibition Association on the
rental charges. When this was
announced, rather than see tht
Varsity team lose money, the Na-
niamo club donated $75 to the
Gym Fund and paid for hotel
accommodation.
The Thunderbirds flew even
with the Clippers through most of
the first period as Goalie Bob
Smith and the number one Varsity
defence combination, Terry Nelford and Ray Nichols, worked
overtime to hold the speedy Clip
pers in check. Just before the
first whistle, Robbie Robertson
picked up a loose puck in front of
the Varsity cage and made no
mistake as he toeat Smith.
Shortly after the start of the
second period Nanaimo's Normie
Kirk sifted in on Smith, drew him
cut and sank the puck to give the
island squad a 2-0 lead. But Terry
Nelford reduced the lead less thai,
a minute later wit. v. long shot
from just inside fhe blueline that
fooled the agile Bentley.
UBC FIGHTS BACK
Midway through the sandwich
session, the Nanaimo squad took
advantage of a lapse by the Varsity defence to score three quick
goals to make the score 5-1 at the
end of the period.
The 'Birds fought back in the
final period as Lloyd Torfason and
Bill Buhler whipped in a couple
of quick counters. The Varsity
squad completely controlled the
play at this stage of the game and
missed several set-ups through
over-anxiousness.
Bill Husband tallied the flnal
UBC goal near the end of the
game with a picture play. He
cruised in on Bentley, cooly drew
the Nanaimo custodian out of his
goal and slid the rubber into the
net.
