Journalists write only for experience and a desire to entertain and
stimulate yen, its readers. They are
fortunate in being able to express
their views more freely than
through any other medium.
Consequently they quickly acquire a distinct sense ot mutual
respect and adrogation (which is
sometime pot tbe evident in the
paper* itself), and a feeling of
iprMe and satlafaetlon In doing an
acquets job under great difficulties.
I iHMffWIBtt^mJWf my av
soclates on the paper, especially
my regular fellow-columnists, Flo
(The Poet) MacNell, M (Engineer
and beer) Fotheringham and Myra
(Gossip) Oreen.
Many of us Intend to write for
our living, and no doubt a few of
us will be fortunate enough to follow the steps of such distinguished
ex-Ubyssey staffers as Earle Birney. Eric Nicol, Stuart Keat, Hymte
Koshevoy and a host of others who
people the literary world from the
lucrative heights of the Time-Life
organisation to the improverlshed
wastelands of pm tnagaslnes.
LIKI MANY Q* Ul who hope
to graduate this year. I feel that
I have missed many opportunities
to participate more fully In university life. But those of us In
Arts courses Which do not fit one
ter any specific Job, are thankful
for the opportunity offered by
The Ubyssey and other similar
eampus organisations to develop
our interests and increase our specialised knowledge.
My year with The Ubyssey has
given me Invaluable experience
and has formed a distinct contrast
with ray two years on the University of Western Ontario Gazette where 90 per cent of the staff
were students of the School or
Next year I hope to be In Europe,
and, according to-the new Editor-
in-Chief Joe Schleslnger, you
might be hearing from me through
these colutauis In 1952-53.
But then a war or a woman
might make that impossible.
GOOD LUCK ALL on the examinations.
In the meantime, its a nice feel-
ins to have my feet on solid
ground again. I hope someone else
will take up residence In the tree

A parting shot before I let go

RON FOXALL, EUS president made a big splash on campus when fellow- engineers threw him in the lily pond.
As apart of the baptizing ceremony for the ex-prexy, the
dunking also is supposed to purify the water which filthy
Artsmen have polluted.
Harried Totem staffers, scurrying back to lectures after
a lull month of "last minute" end-tying, have finally handed
the last page of copy and pictures lo the printer.
With the Brown Bros, plant in Toronto still on strike,
no guarantee of delivery can be made, but editor Joan Fraser stated yesterday that the book ahould be in the hands
of the students % Hay 10. \
Those students w,ho wish to have their Totem mailed
to them must leave their summer addresses at the AMS
offioe before May 1.
Books which are not picked up will be sold to those
on the waiting list.

Absentee Opponent ^
By PAT THOMAS ",:% ■
Although they had previously agreed to undertake debate
with the CCF Club on the subject of the proposed fare increases, BCE officials suddenly decided this week that the subject "had been kicked around enough already," when tqld that
their speaker would .be opposed by Mrs. Laura Jamieson.
The   debate   was   scheduled   to*-
»ttir Mr. Purdy  of the company,
opposed by Mrs. Jamieson, when
slub officials were notified that
there would he no BCE representative at the meeting.
The BCE had also previously
demanded second place on the
program, "so that we will know
what to say."
The meeting was held on Wed.,
March 26, with club members hoping that the BCE "retreat" would
receive appropriate publicity.
Pointing to the fact -that Premier Johnson was formerly a director of the BCE holding company,
Mrs. Jamjeson said that there was
little hope' that the demand for
public ownership would be recognised by the present government
alignments anyway. /
She also quoted company officios reports to the effect that when
profits are low, services must be
reduced, but that when profits
are high, service must be further
reduced' any way. Said'the speaker: "It is a case of heads, they
win; tails, we lose.
Noting that1 recent'power and
light rate Increases are used to
■support -the^ transU tjartem^-Mrt.
Jamieson ridiculed the idea that
the City of Vancouver could alone
undertake operation of lt. "It
would be impractical for the City"
to' operate transit and yet have
to. go to the BCE to buy the power.
Mrs. Jamieson admitted that
transit companies now are faced
with certain obstacles, but pointed ot the fac' that only seven out
of twenty-five transit companies
across Canada remain in private

An Entertaining Year i
> HIS is the last regular issue of the Ubyssey and we
realize with rather a shock that we have only begun to do
the things we promised ourselves last September.
All in all, when the dust has finally settled, we suspect
that 1951-52 Will be remembered ae a moderately successful
y#*r in Ubyssey history.
Our principle aim was to stimulate thought and, through
;t, %e Jfestii' activity.
It is imposaible to come to any conclueiott as to whether
or not yre did foster thought. But we are left assured thit we
did, from time to time, raise a good old fashioned raucaus and
titer people here and there must have been awakened.
Our attempt to return the Ubyssey to n point where it
could fulfill its long forgotten function as a literary medium
•nd to bring to the students in a readable form the wisdom df
the faculty, met with tolerable success, even though they ran
ilito countless unforseen difficulties.
Perhaps our most successful experiment was the institution Af guest editorials which made the Ubyssey an honest
forum for all points of view.
We began the year with almost no artaff. The organization
had to be built anew and it suffered from the multitude of
problems which inevitably face a volunteer organization in
its formative or reformative phases.
...  We did*not solve all of the problems, perhaps not even
the majority of the problems—but we believe that we have
lift tk« ptMcations board in a stronger position than that in
whioh we found it and we trust that our .successors will find
themselves with fewer problems to solve.
"     In dosing, we extend our thanks to our Supporters and   ■
to our attackers for what has been one of the most entertain-   ;
ift| years we can remember.
Slider Suicide
KOW that we are faced with examinations again we find
ourselves contemplating wistfully the futility of our
exam system.
For five periods of three hours each we shall be expected
to reveal knowledge accumulated throughout the year (or
more likely during the few/ preceeding nights.)
Then a few score individuals known as "markers" will
sweat out the May .weeks getting increasingly more irate over
the infantile prattling of their students.
That pre-determined percentage of us which will inevitably fail to pass, can be expected to drown its sorrows in a
mug of beer.
-   Therefore, in asking for a revamping of the exam system
we are moved by purely aHruistie motives.
We jus* don't want to see any marker* committing suicide.

NUTTIN' much
Shattered Illusions
A HIT person attending the last AMS meeting and laboring
under any illusion regarding the mentality of university
students must certainly have had his illusion shattered. He
must have left the meeting with- the conclusion that the requisites for admittance to university are far too low. The president of our university who labored so hard on the Massey
Commission must indeed wonder if his strenuous efforts were
One of the strangest anomalies resulting from the meet-
lltg was the approval of students to two absolutely inconsistent motions. First of all, the students approved last year's expenditure of $17,000 for MAO and again voted over $15,000
to carry on the work of MAD, fully realizing that this would
result in a reduction of all the LSE budgsts amounting to virtual extinction in some cases. The majority of students voted
to practically extinguish literary and social groups in order to
subsidize sports. They approved a loss of $4,67 on hockey
alone, to keep a small group of hockey players expending their
efforts at the Kerrisdale Arena. This loss alone amounted to
more than the LSE budget.
In the face of this, the students gave hearty approvale to
the recommendations of the Massey report which the Student
Council is urging the Dominion Government to carry out;
While extinguishing their literary and social groups ■
on the one hand, they recommended the government's aiding
culture on the other. Surely any intelligent person viewing
these facts would reach the conclusion that approval of the
last motion was pure lip service,
It is sincerely hoped that when the Student Council presents the recommendation on the Massey Report to the government, they can do so with a straight fare,
