Harrison Forman
Famous Author
Later this month Harrison Forman, well known Sino-Japanese war
photographer for the March of
Time, will give a close-up motion
picture lecture in the University

Aflame,"    deal*    with    currant
•vents and tho undeclared war in
Asia, knowledge of which h* has
obtained   from   eight    years    of
direct contact with the Far Bast.
His pictures, taken in the direct
line of fighting, are all eye-wit-
n*s*a record*  of the hostilities
going on even at th* present.
Mr. Forman has had an interesting career, being both author and
explorer as well as photographer.
He has crossed the Qobl Desert In
Mongolia.   Ho has  made  a  close
study of China's Moslemia, the unknown   fifty   million   Moslems   in
Northwest China.   Thro* times h*

The well known books, "Through
Forbidden Tibet" and "China Reborn," merit him his name of author,
as well as many contributions to
the National Geographic and other
magazines. Forman waa alao technical director for the movie, "Lost
With only three affirmative votes
recorded, Students' Council Monday
evening approved a Peggy Fox pro-
posal that a raffle be held at the
Co-ed Ball.
"You wouldn't by any chance
have already made arrangements
for this?" Peggy was asked.
"Yea,   I'm   afraid   I   have,"  ehe
anawered, her eyes straying to a
•Id*   table   where   the   prise*,   a
camera, a penoll and a flashlight,
ware raatlng.
A   atorm   of   protest  from  male
councillors arose.    Amidst cries of
"It's against the law," "It's about
time we cracked down on thia," and
"We've outlawed raffles thia year,"
Carey suddenly put the question.
Three girls answered, "Aye."
No time was given for negative
votes, as Carey, in an adroit piece
of chairmanship, announced the motion passed.
Faculty Council Asks
For 'Week-end' Parties
Students' Council Monday evening considered a recommendation
from the Faculty Committee of Student Affairs to the effect that formal balls be held only on the weekends.
Council has frequently granted
Greek letter groups permission to
hold formals on any night of the
week requested. It was stated Monday that council authority probably doea not extend to Jurisdiction
over this matter, but that a recommendation would be advanced to
next  year's   council.
Williams Plays
On Outside Teams
Tom Williams may be ruled Ineligible to receive any athletic
award thla year, council learnt
Monday eventng, when discipline
committee  minutes   were  read.
Repeated warnings that he
must not play for outside teams
were ignored by Williams, Lyall
Vine told council in explaining
the  move.
Fifteen constitutions were passed
by Students' Council Monday evening, as Malcolm Brown hurried
through legislation to complete his
reorganisation of the Literary and
Scientific  Society.
Brown ha* issued warning* at
th*   last   four   oounoil   moating*
that th* constitution* war* oom-

"Thla ia all tommyrot," claimed
Lyall Vine.   "Juat pick out tho pertinent tacts, we don't want the details."
"I've warned you this was coming,"  retorted Brown.
Carey    Interjected    the    remark
that refusal to listen to the constitutions  was  a  suggestion  of  last-
Main result of the constitutional
discussion was a ruling passed
stating that no student may participate In any activity under the A.
M.S. without full payment ot Alma
Mater fees.
This was aimed in particular at
students from affiliated colleges,
many of whom do not pay U.B.C.
A.M.S. fees.
Passed Monday night were: Law
Society, I.R.C, Muro Pre-Med., Parliamentary Forum, La Canadlenne,
Film Society, 8.CM., Historical Society, U.E.S., Cosmopolitan Society,
Chinese Students' Club, Forest
Club, Navigation Club, N.F.C.U.S.

Symposium  On
AU phases of student administration were discussed at a symposium
on student government held on
Wednesday under the auspices of
the N.F.C.U.S. The symposium was
a part of the campaign promoted
by the Canadian Student Assembly
which is a brain-child of the N. F.
C. U,  S.
Four speakers, representing all
sections of the campus "community" were heard at the meeting
which was under th echairmanship
of Alex Macdonald.
Student  President  Carey   represented   the   Students'   Council
and  stressed   the  importance ot
the activities of the administrative  council   in   student   government.
Jean Meredith, Women's Athletic
representative, spoke from the view
of  the  average  student,   and  Miss
Clare Brown from  that  of  a past
council member and graduate.
Prof. J. Gibson presented some
of the constitutional problems of
student government, and he made
a few suggestions as to their possible remedies.
No. 37
Canadian Student
Assembly O.K.'d
An N.F.C.U.S. Committee, to coordinate all activities on this campus coming under the national body
was approved by Students' Council  Monday  evening.
The committee will consist of the
president of the A.M.S., president
of the Parliamentary Forum, Ubyssey Editor, and chairman of the
C.S.A.  commissions.
The C.S.A. (Canadian Student
Assembly), was also O.K.'d by
council. It will establish commissions on subjects of special Interest, anrt will have as members all
U.H.C.   students.
Reverses Stand
On Code Issue
Reviving a proposal defeated last
year,    Students'    Council    Monday
evening changed the A.M.S.  Code
to allow a junior or senior to occupy the poat of treasurer—a position
now restricted to juniors only.
Supported by Lyall Vine, who
on February  22,   1987,   bitterly
opposed a similar motion by saying, "You can't bo a good student
and a good treasurer, too," the
motion    went    through     unanimously.
There was no indication that the
ruling was made to apply to any
•pedal case, although Brown first
proposed that the Code rule re the
treasurer be only waived for one
Vine erroneously contended that
he brought a similar motion before
Council laat years although The
Ubyaaey ot February 26, 1987, atatea
that the matter was put forward by
John Logan, and opposed loudly
and long by Vine.
At any rate, Vine declared Monday that this waa the logical time
to make such a change. He and
Carey scored the idea that bringing the matter forward just before
elections would be unwise. "If we
think it ought to be done, let's do
It now," said Carey.
Referring to last year's argument
on the same subject, The Ubyssey
files reveal that a unanimous vote
was missing, when John Logan
made his motion. This fact is also
in the A.M.S. minutes.
Another Vine statement at that
time was: "Seriously, you can't
graduate and keep up the treasurer's duties."
This was  the  start  of  a  fur-
flying flght that delved into personalities, with President Gould
stating that in U.B.C. elections,
the better known man   ia   moro
likely  to succeed than the beat
Short-memoried  councillors  this
year   proceeded,   however   ,to   am-
mend Subsection E, Section 2, Article 3 of the A.M.S. Code, and allow
a junior or senior to be treasurer.
Forum Debates With
Touring College Team
Continuing its very active program, the Parliamentary Forum has
accepted a challenge from William
Jewell College to debate their travelling team on the campus next Friday at noon.
The debate will contend that
"there can be no effective international co-operation between democracies and nations ruled by dictators."

Five Candidates In
Final Race
Most heated and discussed presidential election in recent
U.B.C. history will swing into its final stages Monday when
Ave candidates present their cases to a student meeting at
noon in the auditorium.
Ater a week filled with uncertainty aa to who would
finally he in the race, five men emerged Wednesday afternoon as standing for offlce: Malcolm Brown, Jack Davis,
Alex Macdonald, Carson McGulre and Bob Smith.
Wednesday afternoon, possibility
that the field nilght be narrowed
somewhat loomed, when a series ot
private meetings of candidates and
campaign managers kept the oounoil oflces busy.
However,    when    five    o'otook
oame, no withdrawal* w*r* mad*,
and th* campaign started lo earn'
With few exception* In the history   of   the   unlveralty,   th*   1938
campaign will aee more Issues at
stake than any other.
Candidates, agreed that public relations must be Improved, that the
publicity campaign should be continued, and that the Union Building
issue should be settled, each have
other schemes to place before the
students Monday.
In view of the great interest being taken ln the contest, it is expected   that   an   overflow   meeting
will result Monday.    With many of
the  candidates  putting  up  similar
platforms, only basis on which students can make their decisions is
by hearing and seeing the men who
are offering themselves tor election.
Voting   will   take   plaoe   Tueeday, starting at 10 o'eloek.    Studenta will  vote  In the  Studenta'
Counoil     board     room,     dlreotly
above the Book Store.
Largest vote tor many yeara will
in all probability be recorded.
Preferential voting, used at U.B.
O, means that students are to mark
on their ballots not only their flrst
choice, but their second, third,
fourth and fifth selections.
It is this feature of the voting
that adds to the uncertainty of the
result Tuesday. Second choice votes
often affect the standing ot the
candidates to a great extent.
All students are  urged to  record  their votea  In  thl* eleotion,
beouaaa of th* faot that the Alma     Mater     Sooiety     I*     going

large turnout at the  polle Tuesday.
Nominations for other Students'
Council offices must be filed before

John Bird, chairman of the election
In these elections, too, a number
of closely-contested races are expected. Defeated presidential candidates are allowed to stand again,

Second polling day is March 15,
with election talks the day previous.
Immediately following elections,
the annual A.M.S. meeting will be
staged, and the new council will

Long before nominations were ln
for the presidential election Wednesday afternoon, campaign signs
became a vital issue in the contest.
After council reaffirmed the traditional election rules Monday
night. Jack Davis, S.M.U.S. candidate, was asked to take down his
signs, already posted, change them
to the regulation sise, and not bave
them done by professional sign
One Davis sign, posted at the
bottom ot the caf stairs, came down
Tuesday morning. Another sign,
larger than tbe rules allow, and
with the stamp of "Clay Sign Co."
on lt, remained In the south end of
the Arts Building until Tuesday afternoon.
Wodneeday, before nominations
wore elosed, two Davie sign*, not
with  Student*' Counoil  stamp of
approval, appeared In the Applied
Solenee Building. The** were removed by the eleotion oommlttoe.
In addition, a sign for Alex Macdonald,  larger than  specified,  and
not   approved,   was   posted   at   the
foot of the cat stairs before nominations closed Wednesday.
Both candidates were advised to
conform  to election rules.

The preferential balloting system is apparently so complicated that the majority of even the more intelligent students do not understand it. Of course, everyone knows to
vote one-two-three-four-five in order of preference, but few
understand why, or how the votes are counted.
There is a misapprehension that preference is scored by
some sort of a point system—ten for first, 9 for second, and
so on. On the basis of this misapprehension some voters
believe that marking their favorite flrst and leaving the rest
of the ballot blank is helping the favorite.
This is not so.
A's briefly as possible, votes are counted in the following
manner :
1. All the first.choices are recorded.
2. If no candidate receives more than 50 per cent, of
the votes, the candidate who has received the least is eliminated, and the second choices on his ballots are sorted out and
counted as EQUAL TO PIRST CHOICES for the remaining
S. If still no candidate has received 60 per cent., the
last candidate is eliminated, and the second choices on his
ballots are counted for the remaining candidates, as are the
third choices where the second is for the candidate previously
eliminated, and the THIRD CHOICES on the ballots marked
flrst for the candidate eliminated at the flrst count and second for the one   eliminated at the second count.
4. And so on, until one candidate receives more than
60 per cent, of the votes.
From this (after having read it three or four times) it
may be seen that a voter's second choice is not counted unless
his flrst choice candidate has been eliminated.
Voting only a flrst choice is not more beneficial to that
choice than voting the whole slate in order.
It is as important to give serious thought to second,
third, and fourth choices as it is to flrst choices.
Vote the whole slate, and think out each choice.
About this time last year a suggestion was made to council by the Publications Board that an addition be made to the
list of A.M.S. Publications. That addition was to be a Student Directory, similar to those now in existence in every sizeable university. Then the council turned the suggestion down
—for no good reason. It was suggested that a ruling of the
Board of Governors would disallow it.
Nevertheless a most useful addition to our Alma Mater
Society services, considering the slight cost involved, would
be a little book giving, along with much general information,
a list of students, addresses, and phone numbers. Every student has at some time or other found it impossible to contact
a friend (male or female) after Ave o'clock, simply because
he has no way of finding the friend's home or phone number.
Other universities find their Directories immensely valuable. Surely we would do well to adopt such an inexpensive
Night, the enchantress, had cast
her spell over the Oreen Room,
clothing it in a pall of darkness,
making of it a barren solitude. Ah,
so still; ah, so dark; ah, so lone.
Suddenly the silence was shattered by the midnight chimes; a
thousand moon sprites raced across
the window-sills and danced upon
the walls and floor in a maze of
golden Are.
Strange sounds arose like that
of a crowd approaching at a distance; louder and louder grew the

Dear  Sir:
It Is with considerable amazement that I road a letter ln your
Tuesday Issue, signed by "The Oracle." His contentions seem to be
based on the fact that he has been
out here for some time. And he
advocates that we abandon our habit of the past few years In electing
an "older" president. Now he represents a definite viewpoint. But
when he brings up the Mather administration, he is taking unfair advantage of those people who were
not on the campus at the  time.
Mather, while he did a conscientious job of the duties of president,
was not what could be called a
successful leader. For one thing,
he lacked the prestige which comes
from a few added years, and tried
to make up for it by assuming a
pseudo-dignity which sat ill upon
the shoulders of a person whose
age   was   no   greater   than   that   of

I have ten proposals to place before voters ln the present campaign. In view of the fdct that I
have carried out all of my last
year's promises, I would ask students to consider seriously the following points:
1. Most important issue at the
moment is the campaign soliciting
public support ln our effort to gain
a larger government grant. I have
been closely associated with this
effort, and realize more than most
the vital necessity of carrying on
an unbroken campaign.
2. I favor the Betting aside each
year of a small percentage of surplus funds to be used for emergency purposes. Funds of each organization would be allowed to accumulate, in order that they might be
used when the club was ln need or
used when the club was ln need of
need   them   for  some   specific   pur-
3. I favor close contacts between students and influential outside groups.
4. I advocate an increase in
Inter-colleglate activities of all
6. Increase in activities of the
6. Development of the Cairn
Ceremony and other matters essential to U.B.O. tradition.
7. I favor the establishment of
a  paid* publicity  directors  post.
8. I would like an election selection committee to decide on qualifications of candidates, as is done
elsewhere ln Canada.
0. I favor sending U.B.C. musical and dramatic talent out to other universities.
10. I do not favor a compulsory
Pass System, but I do advocate the
present set-up, with students having the right to turn in passes.
Omitting unnecessary preamble,
I feel confident that I am the logical choice for the office of President of the Students Council for
two self-evident reasons—by platform, and my qualifications.
The former Includes definite and
constructive  views on:
1. Varsity Publicity Campaign:
Full co-operation with the preaent
committee ln studying the vital
problem, and laying a basis for the
Student   petition   in   the   fall.
Dear David:
Glad you told me about the Co-ed
—It eounded fun. Sometlmee I'd
change It all, Including eon rvtlohaet,
Juat to be at College again — yee,
and be a Co-ed, too. I liked It!!
So there I
Today la Juat one of thoae daya.
Mlohael'a been howling ainoe dawn.
I broke my favorite flower bowl,
cut my finger, and only Juat heard
on the radio that maybe Clark
Oable won't play Rhett Butler In
"Gone   With   the   Wind."
However, I hear that the Alumni
are  taokling  a  true  melerdramer—
if ao, today  la brighter.
There'a hope,
2. Union Building: To lead a concerted and continuoua drive for ita
completion in the immediate future.
3. Athletics: (a) Supervision of
a general survey of the Athletic
setup, with a view to introducing a
segregation of Intra-Mural and
"Varsity" team sports ln both financial and managerial organization.
(b) Foster greater Interest In
Intra - Mural and Intercollegiate
4. Pass System: Modification of
present student pass to strike a
better balance between social and
athletic functions.
With regard to the latter, my
qualifications, I need only stress
that this offlce requires a leader,
and my past and present achievements justify my claim to be a
"leader In every field":
1. Executive: President of Science, and Men's Undergraduate
2. Scholastic: Winner of Swan
Memorial, and Matriculation Scholarships.
3. Athletic: Member of U.B.C.
Canadian basketball champions,
1D87,  and   the  Big  Block  Club.
In closing, may I state that, If
elected, I will spare no effort to
dispatch the presidential duties
with Impartiality, Foresight and
I have accepted my nomination
for the Presidenoy only after much
thought. I realize the time and
energy such a position requires,
and the responsibility which It entails. As to my qualifications I can
say little. For three years I have
been engaged In many branches of
student activity. But that merely
justifies my running tor President
and the ultimate verdict' ls with
the voter. There aro many problems facing next year's Council but
space will only permit me to deal
with the major Issues.
In regard to the Union Building
4 feel the time has come to go
ahead. Much of the preparation has
been done by our past presidents,
Carey and Oould. Most of the money ls available, largely raised by
the students. I have seen plans
for a $60,000 building. This building would be a complete unit, but
would not preclude extension at a
later date. I feel that Council
should urge the Brock Memorial
Committee to go ahead this summer.
Although I endorse the pass sys
tem in theory I think it needs revision. Women students are not
getting enough from the pass.
The receut reorganization of the
N.F.C.U.S. offers certain definite
advantages to this university. The
efforts of the secretariat at Montreal to reduce the royalties on plays
produced at universities should be
supported. Moreover, action can
be taken to break the present monopoly prices of textbooks.
But the major taBk before the
university next year is the continuation of the publicity campaign.
It is not too late for next year's
council to avert the $25 increase.
But in addition a well directed and
organized campaign for government
assistance should be continued. It
ls up to the students to put the
case for the University before the
public and the government.
During the coming year the University faces one of the most critical years of its existence. The decisions made and policies followed
by the various governing bodies
during this year and next will determine the eUniverslty of the future and will affect you and every
other young person who seeks ft
University education in, B. C.
It is with profound realization of
the grave responsibilities of your
Presidential offlce that I accepted
the nomination of a ffroup of leading students of the University.
1. Public Relations: Continuation of the policies of the present
Council and Student Campaign
3, University Relations: Through
well considered and diplomatic action avert the limitation and increase in fees.
8. Athletic Committee l Through
investigation of proposal for athletic committee with a view of putting our program and present athletic plant on a self-supporting

be financed and allowed to function
so that the students will gain the
greatest value from them. President
or a- representative of each club
should be given an opportunity of
addressing freshmen at the beginning of the .year.
5. We should seek to create a
real University spirit through: Cooperation of Faculties, Classes, Fraternities, Sororities and Clubs;
Open House; Campus Mixers, and
increased  support of teams.
I shall do my best to co-ordinate
the work of the elected and selected
officials of th Alma Mater Society
as co-operation is the essence of
administrative   work.
Permit me to present a brief account of the reasons why I have
chosen to run for President of the
Alma Mater Society. A candidate
who can offer the experience of one
of the major offices of the' student
government, has justification to believe he is qualified to compete for
the Presidential offlce.
The following are, briefly, my
aims as Presidential candidate:
Politics on the campus are hardly
an issue any longer, but so long as
the present organization is not trespassing too boldly upon the activities of groups, existing, I believe it
can justify its present position. In
regard to the Union Building, there
Is an issue which is rapidly drawing
to a close. Very shortly the students will be notified of practical
completion of the project. The Alumni body should be approached
and asked to aid ua in fullfllment
of the responsibility they undertook
last year. The Pass System, successful on the whole, does require
minor revisions which already I
have attempted to bring about.
The candidates, you will find, will
be in unanimous agreement with
the "Ubyssey" in the matter of the
importance of public relations. I
have had intimate connections with
the work of our Campaign Committee, During the summer months I
should like to see the concentration
of our efforts upon the influencing
of opinion in the Legislature so
that when it convenes in the fall,
the Alma Mater Society will be given a hearing. I am prepared to
spend the vacation in promoting
such a drive.
By reason of my convictions hereby outlined, is my nomination for
President  submitted.

There are two little remarks that perhaps are best told together. One
was overheard in the caf in a frosh conversation: What is the little triangular

New suits are rapidly appearing on the campus. That means new shoes
and, of course, new shoes means RAE-SON'S BUDGET SHOP. There are only
two types of shoe buyers, those who never can find anything to suit them
and those who get their footwear on the upper floor of Rae-Sons Shoe Store.
If you're too busy to do much shopping, take out of the mothballs the
ensemble you got last fall and take a few minutes off to choose a pair of
sport or street shoes  to wear with  it.
Rust, the new reddish shade which is most popular this year, contrasts
