Commerce Heads
Elected Wednesday
Annual elections of the Commerce Undergraduate Society for
the positions of president, vice-
president, secretary, treasurer and
executive member are scheduled
for Wednesday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
with polls In Brock Hall and the
Commerce Reading Room.
Candidates for president are
Phil Dadson and Mike Ryna. Murray Marindale and Rob Wadsworth are contesting the vice-
president's office, while Diane Le
Blanc and Ann Henderson will vie
for the position of secretary.
Treasurer candidates are Nell
Hamilton and Phil De Le Giroday,
while Lyle Ahrens, Doug Parkin, and Sally Heard are each trying for executive member.
Hunter's acceptance of the plan
followed a recommendation by
President N. A. M. MacKensle to
both Hunter and the Board of
Governors, that such a plan be put
into operation.
A student committee comprising
Nonie Donaldson, John MacKinnon
and Charlie Flader, who headed the
Bookstore Investigation Committee, approached Dr. MacKenzie,
who gave his approval to the plan,
has agreed to take the necessary
steps to have the plan instigated.
The change has yet to be ratified by a meeting of the UBC
Board of Governors.
After ratification, Hunter will
begin accepting used books near
the middle of April, and will con-
tine to do so until approximately
the first of June.
The new system Is to be tried for
a period of one year. At the end of
that time, Student Council will receive a report ot progress, and will
decide whether Uie plan should be
kept in operation .
'Commercemen, who have prevl*
ously handled the used book business with their Book Exchange,
expressed themselves as well-pleased with the new arrangements.
Professor E. D. MacPhee, head of
the UBC's school of commerce
said he didn't feel that the bookstore provided enough UFacttcai ex'
perlence to be worth all the time
and trouble Involved.
Book exchange manager this
year, John Hutton felt there was
too much financial responsiblity
Involved. He said that students
didn't want to cut lectures to work
in the exchange, and many of
thorn  were not really Interested.
The bookstore will purchase
books for a maximum of two-thirds
of their original price, and will
charge a 10 percent markup. Commerce book exchange markup was
12 percent.
Students will be rid of their
books ibefore they leave UBC ln the
spring, but this may prove to be
a disadvantage, since examination
results are not out by June 1st, and
students who repeat courses wiU
have to repurchase their texts.
Another disadvantage will be
that some students may not be able
to get new texts, since the bookstore will only order enough new
texts to make up the total needed,
and will use second-hand books to
supply  the  difference.
Bookstore premises will be enlarged to Include the south end
of the Snack Bar which fronts on
the bookstore . . . New area will be
used mainly for storage of texK
and may permit enlarging of the
present sales area.

Carleton College
For Poor Coverage
OTTAWA — (CUP) — The Carleton, Undergraduate weekly of
Carleton College, was criticized at
a recent meeting of the Student's
President Chris Brown said the
Carleton bad not been giving tho
Student Council meetings as much
coverage as It had in former years.
He offered to write a column himself so that the students would
know what was going on. He particularly disturbed about the failure of tho paper to print n constitutional amendment which had
ben proposed at a recent meeting.
News editor Shirley Dworkln
stated, 'We have been giving the
council the most complete coverage possible.' It Is regrptt;ible that
the amendment was not, printed but
the council should have submitted
a copy of publication."
The news editor also claimed
that the reason council had not
received as much space as In previous yeors was that this year's
council had not done as much as
preceding councils.
"We can't be expected to make
up the news; we can only print
the facts that come out of council
meetings,"   she   said.        » Page 2

Council Quit Too Soon
We were disappointed to see Student
Council quit so soon on its investigation of
U3C Bookstore.
The whole probe took seed early last fall
from a contention that the Bookstore is charging more for its wares than it needs to.
.Charlie Flader ultimately got to work as
chairman of a special Bookstore committee,
and the job he did was commendably thorough in all respects but one.
Unfortunately, that one indiscrepency
left his report with a hole the size of the
Grand Canyon. Iii his statement to Council
he noted that neither the Bookstore manager,
tiie bursar nor the president are at liberty
to reveal Bookstore profits or losses. He pointed out that they are bound by a general, overall policy which applies in this regard to all
university departments.
As far as he went, Flader was doing his
duty as he saw it, and doing it well. But he
didn't go far enough. He should have urged
Council to approach the Board of Governors
—which is the only group that can reveal
departmental profits—for a statement on how*
the Bookstore has been standing in dollars
and cents.
If such a request were to get flat and
absolute "No," then Council could rightfully
declare that it had investigated the Bookstore
Speak Up, Sir
Lt.-Governor Clararice Wallace's mumbled hope that "building up our armed might
is . .*, our only chance . . . to, preserve world
peace" is unlikely to impress anyone.
■ Those who have leafed through the records of man's last 5000 years cannot help
but conclude that armaments race3 have
seldom if ever been efficacious in the preservation of goodwill and harmony among nations.
Perhaps what Mr. Wallace meant was
that we are faced with the threat of armed
aggression from the USSR and that, therefore,
it would wise to take specific steps to meet
this specific threat.
If so, he should have come ou* and said
There may well be a case for such a
stand. If a man punches you in the nose, it is
not unreasonable for you to punch him back
before he reduces you to a pulp. But this is
not to say that the practice of the manly art
of self-defence is a valid means toward de
veloping a state of harmony with your neighbors.
We are quite aware that the ppsition of a
lieutenant-governor is never an easy one. He
is expected to unveil monuments, look well in
a top hat, and preside over the coming out
of the daughters of the upper-bourgoisie.
But we also expect him to be a man
capable of intelligent analysis and unafraid
to say  what he  means  when   the   occasion
to the fullest possible extent.
As it is now, the probe has left things
dangling as uncertainly' as ever before.
It's nothing short of ludicrous to claim
that you've investigated any business organization when you haven't more than a hint or
two about the red or black Ink that appears
on its financial books.
No one will deny, as The Ubyssey noted
earlier, that Flader's investigation has resulted in the students gaining an important concession on the book-buying front: that of
having the administration take over the handling of used texts.
But Council should not sell out so easily.
We don't imply that one look' at the Bookstore's profits would elicit an Immediate demand by students for a drop in prices.
What we do mean is that profit or loss,
the Bookstore was supposed to be investigated thoroughly, and the fact that it wasn't
could possibly cost students hundreds of dollars for nobody knows how long into the
What's more, we don't like the thought
of succeeding councils being able to review
the situation and discover that ln 1951 the
Bookstore was "investigated" and that no
evidence whatever was obtained to indicate
that things could be better.
Mr. Wallace's address at the tri-services
inspection to a university audience was..an
occasion on which he might have been expected to say what he thought about the
world situation today.
In confining himself to pious platitudes of
a sort which might have been expected to
go down well with the military brass present,
Mr. Wallace did himself a great disservice,
We think he is capable of better things.
The present world situation is highly dangerous. The US is spending nearly half its
government budget on past, present and future wars. Canada is doing the same and Britain is very nearly equal.
We are told that the building of arms is a
way to preserve the peace.
We are told that we must resist possible
armed aggression from the USSR.
Yet we know that armaments races have
almost universally ended in disaster and last
week we learned from usually reliable sources (Reuters News Agency) that the Soviet
Government has apportioned only 21 percent
of its total budget to arms.
Whether or not these figures mean anything at all is a question that only careful
analysis can answer.
But certainly when we are faced with
such a situation we ought to be able to expect
something better than platitudes from a man
in the position of Mr. Wallace.
Oliver's Travels
By Don Oliver
The other day I was struck down by a flying rumour. It was a nasty little fellow.
Downright ugly. According to it our city's
beloved news vendors have been dragged into
liason as tools of their trade by bookmakers,
chased out of their dens by police.
As I picked myself out of the slash it was
crushing to think that the days are gone when
newsboys presented their papers to the publi*;
with something innocent like "Ooooah
bebey" (transl.—"Paper") given out in a vaii*
compromise between Jolson and Fats Walter
and that now they must guiltily, furtively
bleat something smutty sounding like "wobip
innathird" whereupon the wormly little Giles
type standing on the corner immediately
slinks up and puts two bucks on Flybitten, on
the nose.
The word newsboy has pleasant associations for me. I shall not soon forget the time
when a friend of mine from the country, being
unfamiliar with the care and feeding of newsboys stood for many minutes listening to one's
hoarse pleading cries of "paperoaah" and
then, thinking to aid him in his time of trouble
went into a store and bought him a role of
Purex's best.
At one time, by astute observation of
their habits, I attained an elementary understanding of the language of this breed of men.
A long chuckling wail ending in a yurkle like
the last quart of champagne running out of
the bathtub usually denotes sqme pithy little
bit of news, like "forty detectives of the
gambling squad died miserably in a fire today," while a short nasal snarl, only about
half a block in range indicates that there will
be half an ounce less beer per glass, or that
the B.C. government has granted UBC one
hundred dollars of good taxpayer's money.
Nearly got into the business myself one
day when I got* a cramp in my leg and had
a mouthful of marshmallows. Before I stopped
screaming 72 people had given me a nickln
and asked for a paper.
Kept the nickels too.

Letters To The Editor
Bdltor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
I must take issue with the contents of Mr. Franck's letter which
appeared in Friday's Ubyssey.
•Since Mr. Franck ran for the position of Treasurer of the Alma Motet Society ■ few weeks ago lt is
to be assumed that he knows a
little of the financial affairs of the
AiMS. It is therefore difficult to
appreciate the honesty and integrity ot Mr. Franck when he implies that the students of this university are asked to pay 17000 a
year "to import Oerman students."
As recently as Jan. 26 The Ubys-
sey reported that the coat of the
Oerman scholarships is currently
TlTSOO per student. Since there are
two students from Hamburg on
such scholarships this year I am
most interested to know by what
mathtmstioal, gytanastic»; Mr,
Franck arrives at the $7000 figure.
The WB8 Committee ls at the
moment In communication with
Hamburg regarding the possibility
of continuing the exchange program on a reciprocal basis. We
have every reason to believe there
will be UBC students going to
Hamburg next fall on exchange
scholarship. No commitments have
yet been made but in any event
this exchange program Is not expected to cost more than $2500
next year.    *
, Besides the Oerman students
the ISS brought to UBC this year
four D.P. students from Europe,
$600 has been given to the university for Bursaries for needy foreign students wishing to attend
The ISS. budget this year is
something in the order of $61(10,
iMr. Franck has either irresponsibly neglected to inform himself
of the substance of the 186 budget or has deliberately misrepresented the true facts. In either
case causing extreme embarrassment to the las committe*.
The reasons for Mr. Franck's
misgivings come fro mwhat might
be u valid point of view. However,
the support of UBC students of
the German Exchange prttgrarrti dt-
firms their endorsement of the
theory that exchange of Ideas oh
the university level is a positive
force towards inter-nation under-
standing and (ldBottllstlcally, perhaps) a deterrent to war.
Our students going to foreign
universities stand to gain much by
way of ah appreciation or the dir
ferent cultures, political systems,
and philosophies. We dare to presume that foreign students coming
to UBC will also learn from us.
The 188 Is the expression of the
desire of the university community
to encourage international understanding and co-operation. German
scholarships form a concrete part
Of this expression.

J By glorifying students who win athletic scholarships
to American universities they have encouraged high-school
hoop stars to seek the greener fields to the south. Recently
. the dailies ran pictures of two football players from Victoria
College and a basketball player from one of the high-schools
Who had won such scholarships. Not satisfied with giving
them due credit the dailies attempted to create an aura of
heroism about them.
.     . Actually a player requires no extraordinary ability to

Scholarship winners are  not heroes,  as one might
gather from the distortion and sensationalism so prevalent
in daily sports pages.
Qualified observers who watched players in the recent
High School Basketball Conference estimate that there
are at least ten outstanding basketball players from Victoria, Mission and Surrey who are potential material for
the Thunderbirds.
So far exactly one of these players has specified that he
will attend UBC next year.
!       What has UBC done to ween away the other nine from
"the glittering lure of American scholarships?
Practically nothing.
We have had to sit back with our hands tied while
American universities entice them along the primrose path
;of commercial athletics.
\ As yet we have no athletic director to formulate a pro
gram whereby potential Thunderbirds could be drawn to
' ;UBC. The Physical Education Department has been long
,   overdue in appointing a qualified director to perform such
a task.
• There is only one bright note in the whole picture. One
player from the University of Washington has announced
that he will play for the Thunderbirds next year, and two
star swimmers from Sweden will be coming out next year.
Unless we can get reasonable cooperation from downtown papers and take some decisive action ourselves we will
be faced with another dreary year of winless athletic teams.

The UBC Thunderbird hockey team captured the coveted

The Thunderbirds were well

trophy to Nanaimo that time.

squads added singletons In the second canto to leave the Thunderbirds with a one goal margin.
At 17 seconds of the third period Young started the local landslide. The Coaltown crew tried desperately to get back In the game
