Five Seconders
Submit Statements
Following are the seconders' statements outlining the
qualifications of the ihe candidates for the positions of AMS
and WUS presidents as submitted to the Ubyssey.
Al Westcott
In seconding Al Westcott ior President of tbe AMS,
I dp so with eomidcnct. :n his proven executive ability.
Al has the knack of cutting red tape and getting the job
done quickly and efficiently. He has served on the executive of the Legion for the past two years, last year ut? secretary and this year as President. By his personality and
drive he has reactivated this organization, which was on the
point of dissolving when he assumed its leadership. His
work for the War Memorial Gym Finance Committee ha?
also been of outstanding calibre. Without a doubt the man
for AMS7 President is the man of PROVEN ABILITY.—
Al Vejtcott. TERRY LYND.
Vaughan Lyon
The office of president of the Alma Mater Society, requires a vigorous and capable student officer with a wide
experience in campus activities. Such a man is Vaughan
Lyon—"the big man for the big job." As LSE member,
president of the Student Liberal Club and McGoun cup
debater, Vaughan has gained the respect and confidence
of his associates and of those, like myself, who have opposed
him on the floor of the Mock Parliament. An outstanding
student of International Studies, he is no less a student of
university government and has recently been elected to the
committe to revise the LSE constitution. For competent, far-
sighted student leadership, on February 7th vote LYON!
Ivan F-iltham
The President of the AMS should possess many out-
standing qualities. He must be intelligent, conscientious,
In seconding Ivan Feltham as candidate for the office
of AMS President, I do so in the sincere belief that Ivan

highest degree.
At present he is the Junior member on the Students
Council, the student representative on the Alumni Executive, and Co-chairman of the Constitutional Investigation
Committee, Last year Ivan served as Chairman of the
Homecoming Committee which was so succesful in Organizing Homecoming.
Ivan has actively participated in sports on the campus,
particularly in English Rugby and Intra-Murals.
- Academically, he has had a brilliant record having
consistently maintained a first-class average and having
won a proficiency scholarship.
On the basis of this record, I believe that it can be
confidently said: Ivan Feltham is the man for the job.
BILL CRAIG, 3rd Year Law.
Mory UH
I second the nomination of Miss Mary Lett for President of the Women's Undergraduate Society, because of:
1. Her organization ability and experience in:
a. Girls Hi-Y.
b. Inter Club Hi-Y.
c. Directing and leading in girls' camps.
d. Phrateres as sub-chapter president.
e. Third year, arts representative on WUS.
f. WUS Fashion Show.
2. Her interest in campus activities as a member of:
a. Glee Club	
b. Varsity Outdoor Club.
c. Phrateres.
3. Her enthusiasm and capability, as shown in her willingness to work.
With her interest in people and her experience in working with them, you can see I am sure, that Mary Lett is the
proper choice for President of the Women's Undergraduate
Society. ***1J
,   Doreen Albrecht
It gives me great pleasure to second the nomination of
Doreen Albrecht for the position of Women's Undergraduate
Society's president. Doreen has shown evidence of her
executive ability during her three years on campus. She has
been active in Phrateres, and was elected to the responsible
position of Vice-President. In addition to this, she has served
for three year as representative on the Home Economics
Undergraduate Society. Serving as Home Economic** representative on the Undergraduate Society Committee gave
her an insight into the workings of the Student Council and
practical experience in dealing with student problems.
Thus, Doreen has the ability to serve not only as a leader of
the women on the campus but also as a capable vice-
president of the student body.

"We want to stop this spending

The UN Club executive's far eastern brief was amended by the
meeting with the elimination of
the clause asking recognition by
the UN of Communist China.
This was necessary, .in. view of
the fact that the political committee of the world government Tuesday voted to brand Red China as
an agressor ln Korea.
Object of the' UN Club meeting
Tuesday was to debate the far
eastern brief and the opposing
resolution, submitted by M. Pic
and J. Rohn.
Speaking to the' assembly, M.

The Road To Nowhere
The LSE committee to draft a referendum on religious education seems likely to
mark time for the next many weeks—if, indeed, it ever gets around to lifting a foot.
Mr. Pedersen, the chairman, seems to
have shown a singular lack of judgement in
choosing his members. As it stands now, it
consists of representatives of the SCM, the
VCF, the Newman Club, the Hillel Foundation and one "non-believer."       *
This would seem rather akin to setting
up a Royal Commission on broadcasting consisting of representatives of the Canadian
Association of Broadcasters, the CBC, and one
lone citizen who never listened to the radio
Mr. Pedersen should have realized that
only way to get anywhere would have been
to set up a committee of relatively disinterested—not uninterested—persons who could
then hear testimony from the interested parties.
The interested parties can only be expected to feud among themselves ad infinitum—
and the result will probably be that we get
just what we have now: nothing.
Mr. Pedersen is reported to have said
that he chose his committee the way he did
only because "no one else on the campus
showed the slightest interest."
We rather doubt it. How many people
were approached? Or did the LSE chairman
simply succomb to the obvious pressure from
the interested parties to get in the show?
Perhaps, when the present committtee
has talked itself out of existence, council will
appoint a new one.
More likely, though, the present committee will come'up with an unworkable or
loaded referendum in such confused terms
that nobody will be able to make any sense
out of it and problem will be tossed eight
back at the Board of Governors accompanied
by briefs from each of the interested parties
carefully explaining how the referendum substantiated their particular viewpoint. ,
Either way, the present committee is a
Letters To The Editor
They've Had Their Time
Artsmen don't deserve half the break
which they got Thursday from AMS Treasurer John McKinnon.
In fact, Student Council, when it reviews
the case of the suspended Arts Undergraduate
Society budget, should seriously consider
disbanding the entire AUS organization, if
such a group can be called "entire" or an
Honest John McKinnon was doubtless
trying to be honest with Artsmen when he
ruled that they could reclaim the budget suspended Monday night. But he would better
have been advised to apply hi.s renowned
honesty to the better interests of Iho student
body as a whole, •
if we thought for one moment that the
AUS truly represented the artsmen on this
campus, we would say, "Slap thsm on the
wrist as punishment for their foolish spending,
but give them back their budget."
No one can deny that the unpublicized
dance whiph AUS sponsored last week was
a grandioso flop. But one fiasco would hardly
bo sufficient grounds on which to cut off the
artsmen's stipend for the entire year.
Unfortunately, however, there many
other grounds for taking such harsh action,
and they are i-easons which the artsmen themselves have created.
Our Arts Undergraduate Society, despite
the efforts of its executive, has done nothing
this year worthy of mention.
In fact, we can't remember artsmen, as a
whole, ever doing anything worthy of mention. And we can't foresee any likelihood of
artsmen doing anything worthwhile.
In exchange for returning thei»* budget
lo the AUS, Treasurer McKinnon apparently
got a few weak promises about "future activities."
Things have reached the state new where
no such promises may he relied upon. Council may watch AUS spending closely from
now on, Im I any group which has to be thus
coddled by Council does not deserve existence
c.y a separate organization.
The AUS should be disbanded, and disbanded immediately.
Any councillor who is still willing ta
offer AUS a weak-kneed compromise, in view
of the facts, i.s cheating students of the value
they should get from their Alma Mater fees.
ISS Summer Seminar
by Felicity Pope
Have you ever thought what it feels like
to be a guinea-pig in an experiment. I can tell
you. The Seminar was an experiment in international education on the highest level and
Les Armour, Mike Hind-Smith and myself
were three of the 117 guinea pigs (from 20
nations) High levelled and high pressured
discussion of the "Crisis in Western Civilization" (Crisis in the W.C., for short) for five
straight weeks is hard on brains which have
seldom if ever been used to capacity, but it is
even harder on your mental equilibrium. It
is this last fact that makes it hard to report on
the Seminar justly; for close and continuous
contact with first class minds moulded on different lines from your own and th" impossibility of using glib phrases to avoid thorny
issues fomented a spiritual crisis and nn intellectual revolution which will influence what
I do and think for the rest of my life. This
wa.s the most important result of the Seminar
for me but it is something altogether too complicated and intangible to write an article
about. So from the welter of impressions I
received I am going to pick out two things
which, I think, are significant and which will,
I hope, be interesting.
The bitterness which still exists in Europe
against the Germans came as a shock to most
of the Canadian delegates. For Ihe fir^t week
of the seminar there was only Iho barest
necessity of communciation between the Ger
mans and the Norwegian, Danish, French and
Dutch groups. One French girl would turn
her back if a German spoke to her. She was
Jewish and both her parents had been shot
by the Nazis. Later one of the Norwegian
boys   went   to   work   in   the   International
Laundry (a student-self help project started
by one of the American delegates) ir. order
that by working with them he might get to
know and understand the Germans   I think
that  if  the seminar had  no other  effect  it
showed those hundred students the useless-
ncss of intolerance and hate, and also how
enduring il is. Toward the ond four Germans
gave  a   panel   discussion   on   their  country,
afterwards  a  Danish  boy  got  up  and  said
something like this;  "When I came to this
Seminar  I  hated  Germany,  now  it  is  the
country of my friends Hanau, Hans, Stan and
Geert. How can I hate it?" I was sitting between a Dutch boy and another Dane, one
.just said "it sounds good," the other "he is
just an exhibitionist and a sentimentalist at
thai," These, mind you, were student leaders
with a type of education that implies tolerance. I spoke no Dutch and when we arrived
in Rotterdam I got a porter who spoke no
English so I had recourse to German. He.told
me curtly  to whisper and answered me  in
Dutch—which wa.s a big help? Perhaps this

I submit that the answer can
partly be found In the January Is
sue of the Atlantic Monthly. Therein, Oscar Handlln, discusses the' attitude of the present day university student In an article entitled,
"Yearning for Security." "The col
lege, we discovered, was muggy
with modest ambitions; the little
dreams were not of wealth or fame
or monumental accomplishments,
but of bureaucrats' offices in gov
ernment or the corporation." "Mean
while they .settled easily Into the
ruts they dug tor themselves, ex
peeling to spend out the rest of
their lives undisturbed," .to quote
two of his sentences. What has
this to do with UBC athletics" 1
submit that these catch phrases-
reflect the very state of mind to
which Professor Handlln refers.
The attitude seems to be that It1

Dear Sir:
It. would appear that cat' coffee
(apparently not conducive to great
mental activity) and feelings of no
stalgia have proved embarassing-
ly revealing. The inside secrets
divulged by Felicity Pope concerning her summer seminar trip to
Europe give the impression thai
more alrohol was absorbed than
culture of any kind. The emphasis
on drinking and floor shows tend
to indicate that the incidental discussions of the International situation (or anything else so daringly Intellectual) were of Uttle benefit in developing a better understanding or an intermingling
The only possible excuse t-tiat I
could conjure would be (lie fact
that only those secrets were n>-
vealed that would appeal to the
average student and that conform
to tlie'standard of publication The

Otherwise, I would challenge the
value of permitting such delegates
lo attend ISS Seminars, seeing it
rather as a misappropriation of
funds and a misrepresentation of
the high ideals which wc as a
Christian nation and as seekeri
after troth and understanding
stand  for.

"atrocious sins" of which the translators are guilty. Let us examine

Phrateres initiated their new
executive In u formal service on
Tuesday, Jan. UO. The new executive Includes! Enid Dealing, president; Betty Black, vice-president; Jean Hardy, recording secretary; June Tlball, social service
chairman; Hilary Yates, treasurer.
This year's executive has done a
really outstanding job. Uood luck
to next year's girls!
A quick look at the nomination
board in the AMS office shows two
candidates running for position of
president of the Women's Undergraduate Society. They are Mary-
beth and Doreen  Alhrecht.
Mary Rltcher is at the moment
the only candidate for position of
Secretary of the Alma Mater Society.
Nominations do not close until
February 5 so there's still time for
further nominations if you are interested.
Questions about Delta Sigma Pi
mem.ber£lflp qualifications have
driven me to writing all I know
about It. Admission to the honorary sorority ls based on a point
system which includes scholarship,
leadership and service.
A total of 20 points Is necessary
lefore a girl may be asked to join
the group. Just how do you get
those   points?
Well, first of all is scholarship.
A second class standing Is essential to the members of the sorority.
Leadership in campus clubs, Including sororities, counts highly In
a point total. For example, If you
are president of a campus group,
you are credited with five points.
Lesser executive positions count
three points, any service in campus groups is taken Into consideration.
Nominations for the honorary sorority are taken, each spring. Initiation into the group usually takes
place in the fall.
Budget down to zero but you'll
scream If yon rave to wear that
same "little black dress" again"
For an Inexpensive accessory
change maybe you'll like the new
"Whoppers" I saw downtown the
other day. They are pretend diamonds, three on a card, in matching or unmatchlng shapes, and they
would   make  very  smart  buttons.
Also saw some little pins that
would look very effective on a
high collar. They are made of
"rubles, emeralds, pearls," or what
have you, and theyr'e easy on the
budget at prices ranging from 50
cents up. Some feature matching
earrings. Mighty purty.

An intricate display of gymnastics interwoven with "funny"
acts set off the matinee performance of Club Fizz Ed, when
it "was presented in the Auditorium at noon yesterday.
—■*■■ Directed by Ken Hodgert, the
program was highlighted by its
; dance routine. Very effective was
the "Dance of the Flames" which
featured fourth year physical ed
girls In striking black and red costumes. Solo of the number was performed by Jean Leiper.
Also effective was a Hula dance
by Miss Marjorie Miller.
Pink elephants, u number depicting the illusions of an engineer after a night out presented
a hilarious climax to the show.
Outstanding balancing routine
was presented on tbe program by

Musicians Needed
MacKinnon Says
Most urgent demand on the campus right now is the need for musicians, AMS treasurer John MacKinnon said Thursday.
At least 11 musicians are being
sought to form an orchestra for
the Musical Society's coining proi
duction of The Gondoliers. '
MacKinnon is seeking to form a
student orchestra for Mussoc in
an attempt io eliminate the "exorbitant costs" or hiring professionals   for  the  show,
"The rates for professional musicians are so high now that the
cost, of hiring 11 persons for the
live-day production would be tremendous,''   MacKinnon  said.
Instruments particularly needed
are strings and woodwinds. ('. H.
Williams, musical director for The
Gondoliers, will personally take
over the direction of tho new orchestra and lias planned to spend
extra, time with the group.
MacKinnon is doing .all the con-
ti'act work for director Williams,'

For AMS Elections
More than 70 students spoiled
their AMS election ballots last year
because they didn't know how to
vote under the preferential system.
Object of the preferential ballot
Is two fold. In the first place, it
eliminates the possibility of a
weak candidate being elected on a
split  ballot.
Secondly, in the case of a close,
vote, such as characterized John
Haar's election last year, the candidate who is victorious can be
confident that he has the full
support of the electorate.
Under the system, the candidate's names are placed on the
ballot sheet in alphabetical order.
Voters are required to write the
numeral 1 (one} pn the ballot <>•
poslte the name of the candidate
lor whom he desires to vote.
The numeral 2 (two) should be
placed after the name of the candidate who is the voter's second
choice and so progressively until
all the candidates whose names
appear on the list are allotted
In counting ballots, each candidate is credited with the number
of first choice marked opposite
his name. When votes on the first
ballot have been counted, the candidate with the least number of
votes is dropped from the lisl and
the second choices marked on his
ballot credited to the candidates
for whom they were cast.
If, on the first count, a candidate receives more than 50 per
cent of "the total number ot first
choices, lie is declared elected.
The   candidates   with   the   least
number   of   votes   In   subseipiencl
counts are struck off the list and
the  votes credited  to  their  names ;
are distributed among the  remaining  candidates  on   lhe  list   until  a|
candidate  lias   ."in  per  cent   of  the |
votes cast or until two candidates!
remain,   in   which   case   the   one,
with   the  largest   number of  vote:! i
is declared elected. \
Kleetion    Committee   has   urged:
students   to   consider   each   candi
date  seperaloly  and  decide  before-'
hand    bow    Iheir    ballots    will    be
