Students  Support  Effigy  Burni
A plugged drainpipe is responsible for all the mud and
water which has almost inundated the area in front of Ihe
library this past week.
Library officials became disturbed four days ago when
they found a foot of wpter in the library transformer room.
The department of Buildings and Grounds ordered tho pipe
found and as a result, crews have been working day and
night digging a 17 foot, hole to drain off the water and to
find the plugged pipe.
The pipe was found yesterday, and workmen hope to
have the hole filled in. A permanent manhole will be
built to facilitate operations in the event of future trouble.

On Records
Over 200 people turned outj
Friday to hear the controversial
senate investigating committee
being blasted by a group of Los
Angeles Doctors and Lawyers
on recordings.
Social Problems Club presented recordings of an actual
subcommittee hearing, with the
object in mind of stimulating
discussion among the audience
on the subject of McCaHhylsm.
The records, produced with
the intents©, ^ftote McCarthy-
ism," consisted of a series of
^violent attacks against the subcommittee on the part of American Doctors and Lawyers.
"This committee, nor any
committee, has the right to tell
the American people what they
should think,"*' said one Los Angeles lawyer.
"The people should tell their
Congressmen what to think, not
have their Congressmen tell
them how to think," he asserted.
The lawyer refused to testify
before the subcommittee on the
grounds that in doing so he
would be helping to "desecrate

"HANG HIM, burn him!" students yelled as McCormick's
effigy is dragged through the crowd and hoisted onto the
gallows. The effigy was stuffed with copies of the Chicago
Tribune, held a Tribune in its hand, and was set afire with
a torch made d'f a rolled-up Chicago Tribune. Note Order
of Lenin for Hero McCormick pinned on effigy's chest.

The most unfortunate aspect of Sunday
night's little bonfire was the timing. If the
effigy burning had taken place before University of Toronto students had burned Senator McCarthy, UBC students would have been
hailed as leaders in a demonstration against
witch-hunting. As it is now, they are being
classified as mere imitators of the eastern
• The reported 300 students who displayed
an outstanding amount of energy and local
originally for UBC will be regarded, rightly
or wrongly, as official representatives of this
university by the readers of Canadian and
American newspapers. The feeling here is
that the majority of those students on the
main mall Sunday night were there principally to have a hell of a good time.
The anonymous leaders of the demonstration were no doubt perfectly serious in
their intentions and support can be found
for their efforts by saying that the burning
was designed to show Toronto and the rest
of Canada that we agreed fully with the cremation of Mr| McCarthy. But it was fairly
obvious that many of the observers at the
fiery funeral were victims of curiosity and

As you»" repulsive clerk
seems to think our vocabulary
is limited to 100 words, I wish
he'd write his letter so that I
and my fellow sufferers could
understand it. Such phrases as
"expound my views", "any criterion of the extent", "completely "devoid," "diligence and application" and,, of course, "mature woman" leave me at a
complete loss. I've scanned all
my funny books and he was
right—I can't find one of them.
I even borrowed some of my

looking. Exams are close and
they need more diversion you

Ray Is Really Burned Up
There are strange jokes in West Point Grey
By the kids who hit the books;
The University tots have their secret plots
That make sissies of ordinary crooks.
The Varsity nights have seen queer sights,
But the queerest they ever could pick	
Was that night on the mall,
When the gang from Brock 'Hall,
:   Cremated Bertie McCormick.
So "Our Gang" has done it again—not content  with  burning  matebbook  covers   in   the
cafeteria, they had to go out and build themselves a  full-size conflagration.    "Burning  in
Effigy" they called it—obviously a sly excuse
for just satisfying some primitive urges.
They tell me that over three hundred attended the ceremony—most of them probably
beach-party enthusiasts hoping to get in on
some hot-dog or pop. hand-outs. But here's
something just a little bit frightening about it
all. Sure, most of them just wandered out there
with the crowd, just wanting to hold their
torch up with everybody else's. But after they
saw that there was no free food, no fight, and
no stripper, why did they stay?
And what did they do as the flames leaped
higher and higher? Did they join hands and
dance 'round the blaze, chanting sacrificial
rites? Or did they just stand there with silly
grins on their faces, mouths agape? It might be
wise if the authorities took a quick count on
their enlisted—when that mob saw that there
were no hot dogs it's hard to say what they
did. Who knows what customs are going to
prevail when these interior folk run up against
Fort  Camp  food?
But  perhaps   we're  looking   too  seriously
at the occurrence. There might be some simple
reason  for it all.   I  mean, besides,  the  flimsy
tittle excuse that it was a protest against witch-
hunting in the States. (If students won't protest
a"'ainst   the  .shortage   of  seats   in   the   library,
j they'll hardly get out, en  masse, just because
^ some   American    is    investigating    Little   Red
[ Hiding Hood.
Perhaps the moon had something to do
with  it.   Maybe it set behind the fire-hall and
cast a spell over everybody—kind of an In-
candes-trance. But the most logical explanation
is that someone just stopped to light a cigarette.
Someone else held up his hands to shield the
wind, a third party happened along with a
picture he'd been just dying to burn anyhow,
and Bang! . . . another nlfeeting of Effigies
Anonymous. The crowd was just three hundred
passers-by who stopped to .give advice on how
to light the fire. (You can always find three
nundred people who know how to light a bonfire.)
This same nasty business popped up a few
years ago at one of those Polar Bear New Year's
Day swims. It seems someone started a bonfire (a pretty logical thing to do, after splashing
around with snow up to your ears) and they
used a huge picture of Stalin, labeled "The
Thing", to do it with. Well, a lot of red-blooded
and Red-minded people objected. Instead of
letting the harried leader of the group sit peacefully at home, chipping the ice from his toes,
they started phoning and writing him.
"Your idea was,good, but you should have
used someone alive," wrote one woman: "If
you'd let me know ahead of time I'd gladly have
given up my old man. He's always chock-full
of alcohol and he'd really go up nice."
The phone calls went on, day and night, for
a week, which is a whole lot sillier than burning
the thing had been in the first place. Some of
the irate 'firemen' even threatened violence.
It's kind of unnerving when you can't hop into
hod without wondering whether it's a hot-
water bottle or a bomb that you're putting your
feet on.
Personally, I wonder what the whole thing
proves, except that we can burn, paper as well
as the next guy. No one came out any the worse
—except for poor Quincy who got carried away
and burned his feet trying to dance over the
!>ot coals --and the subject, Col. Robert McCormick, merely got a voodoo hot-foot and
more publicity.

had it not been for our democratic society.
The lady mentioned "a male
clerk." As far as I know,
there are several male clerks
in the store, but obviously the
right one has felt hurt.
It has once and for all been
established by a general enquiry that the service in the
book store has been poor and
ought to be improved. But so
far nothing has been said
about the behaviour of the personal except in the case mentioned. The reason is that the
other clerks render their services as should be expected in
n store. The students should
have a right to expect that the
primary rule of all personnel
in all business enterprises—
also the campus bookstore—■
should be amiability and politeness to all customers. If the
clerks arc not in the possession
of such qualifications they
should be discharged and replaced.
We have had enough trouble
with the book store as it is,
please do not try to insult us.
Let us rather see that the repulsive clerk humbly apologizes.    Maybe he will?

Rather Unfair
Editor, The Ubyssey:
I would just like to pass n
few comments or> the two articles that have appeared* in
The Ubyssey concerning the
food at Fort Camp. The first
article by A. Kent was rather
unfair, I thought, as it was an
opinion of all those staying at
Fort Camp. The second article, a note to the Editor, from
a Fort Camp sufferer was also
an unfair opinion.
Maybe we do have a few
meals that arc not exactly
suited to our own tastes. After
all, Fori Camp can't please
everyone that eats there.
Someone is bound lo be unsatisfied I think, and most of the
Dorms think that the meals on
the   whole   have   been   pretty
fair this year and we don't like
to hear unnecessary and discreditable  complaints.
If a person feels the meals
are abominable and wants to
do something about them, that
is fine, but there are the proper channels through which to

Foster Culture
Editor, The Ubyssey:
With utter amazement, I
read in your paper on Friday
that the Ubyssey was "continuing" its policy of fostering culture and intellectual discussion
among U1BC students. The purpose of this seemingly noble
gesture was to help English
100 students with their English
course. However, the only conclusion that.I can draw from
this new policy is that the
Ubyssey is looking for people
for its staff who can write and
read English. After all, what
other conclusion can I draw
after reading Friday's edition
and finding such readable
things as the following:
(1) The word applied as used
on line six of the 'policy continuation' is usually ended with
the letter d. Anyway, there is
no such thing as an Applied
Science Newsletter, either in or
out of quotation marks.
(2) A page one story said that
Dr. Crumb was lucky not to be
killed by falling "plaster and
lathes". Has the Arts building
recently been moved to the
basement of the machine shops?
(3) A headline on page three,
regarding   the   McGoun   Cup
Team was also very interesting. It should start some real
(4) To save first year English students the trouble of
turning to page three to find
mistakes in English I now refer
them to paragraph four of the
Mock Parliament story on page
All first year students might
also be interested in learning
that Applied Science as used
in the Ubyssey means Engineering. For years we of the red-
shirt faculty have tried to set
recognition of the scientific attributes of our faculty and at
last recognition is ours.
Here also might be a good
place to audaciously interject a
suggestion • to Fotheringham
and Company. We thank you
very much for your awe-inspiring unselfishness but remember
thc old adage, "charity begins

Established Fact
Editor, The Ubyssey:
Evidently John Penman has
scientifically established the
fact "that a disproportionately
large percent of prominent
Jews are reds, or red'sympathizers."
At least one skeptic wonders
whether Penman understands
the historical forces behind
the pro-communism of many
Anti-semites and suspicious ,
students have been indicting
Jews for a long time on thc
count that they are not 'loyal.'
This accusation might refer to
a rejection of democracy and
a preference for totalitarianism. Here Penman's disagreement is perhaps justifiable.
It would seem, however,
that many of those prejudiced
against Jews are not ruled by
a rejection ot democracy so
much as they are by a rejection of the national system.
Jews are today generally as-
sociable with internationalism,
because of a cultural—and not
"racial"— clannishhess handed down to them from the antagonisms between their ancestors and oldentimes Gentiles.
Unfortunately for both Jews
and their enemies, internationalism at present remains a
Third Year Arts.
Editor, The Ubyssey:
It was with considerable disgust, nay, downright nausea,
that I read Ihe letter to your
editors by one John Penman.
It grieves me to think that the
organ of a democratic university would even consider
printing such a sickening collection of gibberish. Surely a
true democracy would not allow such lies to he seen in
print? Is that what, our forefathers died for on the plains
of Abraham?
It is only in the free Western
world that such thoughts' are
allowed to be circulated. Look
how the North Koreans regiment the thoughts of their returning prisoners of war, and
what about the East Germans
in  East Germany?
Let us have no more of this,
and at least try to keep the

Landis Again
Editor, The Ubyssey:
Being well above the ISO-
word limit, my previous letter
had to be cut. Unfortunately,
the cutting produced ambiguity, which I wish to clarify.
The "preceding presentation" referred to in the fourth
paragraph frorri ihe end was
meant to be one of the important factors of the .theme. Perhaps it was omitted because of
its vagueness. The corrected
version appears below: %
"My stand is a positive one
based on sound conclusions.
Because human nature is as it
is, Utopian communism cannot
function successfully; therefore, there is no ehance for the
existence of such communism.
Since ilt is mexistent, what are
we so concerned about? Even
if Utopian communism could
exist, it in itself cannot possibly be a threat.
The danger is not in the system but in the power which
controls that system. Such a
power can be represented by a
just, responsible government
■catering to the needs of its
people, or it can be represented by a ruthless dictatorship.
The latter represents the system which is generally called
"communism." We must,-
therefore, commit ourselves
to repelling the undesirable
powers, the ruthless dictatorships, which are the real threat
to our way of life.
As we undertake this task,
let us not proceed- negatively
and sensationally, stating what
we do not Want, glorying in
spy-hunting, and defending
our position by smearing races
and religions. Let us do so
positively, perfecting our democracy so that it will be absolutely the best way of life for
each and every individual."
The "duty mentioned above'
in the next paragraph in the
original letter refers to an
omitted preceding sentence:—
"It is my duty, and it should
be yours as well, to see that
each individual has an opportunity to enjoy the basic freedoms."

Health Plan
Editor, The Ubyssey:
In the interests of fair play
and accurate newspaper reporting the following points
should be brought to the attention of your readers re the
story on the Liberal Mock Parliament in  Friday's Ubyssey:
1) Socred did nut, oppose
Health Service. The Socreds
were the official opposition to
the Liberals. As such they
supported the principle of the
bill in full and vo'.ed for it.
2) The Socred amendment
was not put to a vote. The
one offered was ruled out of
order by the speaker as contrary to the Mock Parliament
3) The Socreds did offer two
suggestions, one of which was
r(dop\ed by the government
and the bill was amended accordingly. This suggestion
had to do with alleged Federal
Government domination. The
other suggestion dealt with increasing facilities for the training of medical personnel as a
first requisite to an expanding
Health program. Tho Government did reject this suggestion.
4'   Thc  Progressive   Conservative Party    was    the    only
party to oppose the bill as introduced   and   amended.     The
PC's   were  thc   only   party   to
vote against the bill.

The main reading room in the Library will be outfitted
Iwith a new lighting system if the Provincial government's grant

Indian Handicrafts
On Show At New Gym
Nation-wide Handicrafts of India sale is on display today
and tomorrow in the foyer of the War Memorial Gym.
Mr. Graeme Ferguson, Canadian secretary of World University  Service  Committee,   is^
here with the sale. Giani Moni
Singh, a Hindu priest at Chilliwack, is also at the display.
Just how many of you com-'
placent, self-satisfied students
have ever stopped to consider
the origin of "Totie," that weird
bit of primitive sculpture that
stands in front of Brock Hall?
It's no ordinary totem pole,
and that's the understatement
of the week. Fairly unreliable
sources have informed us only
today that anyone (that is, any
Individual whatsoever), may lay
claim to Totie simply by presenting the University of British
Columbia with two boxes of
Copenhagen snuff. Here's how
it came about.
Years and years ago, when
Vancouver was called Gastown,
among other 'things, there was
a cigar store operator who catered to Coast Indians at his place
of business on the corner of
Granville and Georgia.
Among his steady customers
was a big-time manufacturer of
totem poles for the tourist trade.
One day.when the end of the
month rolled around, this Indian
was unable to settle his account
in the usual manner.
In those days the tourist trade
was a bit slow.
So the tobacconist accepted a
totem pole in lieu of payment,
on the understanding that  the
hard cash as soon as the CPR
brought its first trainload of
tourists into Burrard Inlet.
Years passed, and the Indian
didn't show up, so the totem
was placed in front of the store
to form the first cigar store
Indian on thc coast.
Then came the Great Vancouver fire of 1886, and our
cigar store operator fled with
his wife and hjs life for the
Now it happened, as it often
does, that this wife was something of a proper female canine,
so you can imagine our tobaco-
nist's amazement and unbounded Joy when he discovered on
coming out pf thc inlet that he
had fled with Totie, leaving his
wife in what was left of Gas-
He was a simple, God-fearing
man, and to show his gratitude
he took Totie away into the
wilderness and set up a shrjne
where he would go on weekends
to give thanks for his emancipation.
That wilderness is today
Point Grey, and'Brock Hall sits
over the very spot of brush he
had cleared for his Totie. Being
the legal holder of Point Grey,
the university holds title to all
buildings   and   attachments,   of
which Totie forms part.
Hence,    by"   redeeming   this
ancient pledge  for  the  amount!
of Its original worth, Totie can
be yours.   Just slip two boxes of ]
snuff into Dr. Ma'cKenzie's hand j
next time you see him, and say,
"I understand you're the cigar
store Indian giver." Nothing to
it, and think of what it will do
for your mantlepiece.
That,, however, is not quite
the end. There is a moral in
this story.
Let tills be a warning to all
prospective members of Greek
Letter Societies. After all,
Totie ii really nothing more
than an unredeemed pledge.

After the crushing 34-0 Toronto defeat two weeks ago, a

Victoria High kept the
Grassie Trophy as team champions, winning by three points
over a strong West Van entry.
Jerry Bain, team-mate of
Hampton, came third about
200 yards behind the leaders,
with Jim Pickup of Victoria
Iiigh running fourth.
UBC came second in the
race for the O. B. Allan Trophy and might hnve won il if
the injured Vic Stephens had
been able to run. Pal Johnson took Vic's place and ran
a very creditable race, but Ihe
more experienced Stephens
probably would have finished
a few notches higher and given UBC the necessary points
to win the trophy.
Jack Pomfret's Varsity capers passed their first real lest
of th/» season last weekend when they clobbered the New
Westminster Moderns 79-24 Friday night at the Memorial gym
and returned Saturday night to edge the St. Martins Rangers
73-72 in overtime.
If the 'Birds had reversed opponents and met St. Marlins Friday night they wouldn't hove
had to worry about overtime.
Against Moderns they played a
near perfect game, hitting from
all angles and checking the helpless Moderns into the floor.
Pomfret used his reserves for
half thc game and they responded in fine style with everyone
connecting for points.
Except for John McLeod':;
fine 22-point performance the
scoring was quite evenly distributed, with Bert) Bone and Dan
Zaharko notching 9 a piece
while Geoff Craig and Garry
Tayior whose offensive play hl*s
shown marked improvement this
year, tallied 8 pointst each.
But on Saturday night things
The UBC hockey (cam was defeated for the third time
in a row last night as they lost an 8-7 thriller to the Forum
at Kerrisdale Arena.
The revamped Forum crew used four players who
were over the age limit and the league is going to hold a
meeting on Wednesday to see what action will be taken.
were a bit different.
Thc Varsity crew tried their'
best   to  squeeze   all   their  mistakes for  the  next  few  gamps
into the contest against St. Martins.
But don't take anything away
from the Rangers, they are an
improved ball club from last
year and with the, addition of
the brilliant rookie Jackie May
they can be a dangerous crew.
St. Martins displayed a nice
fast breaking type of ball when
the opportunity arose with as
many as four men to the 'Bird
one on many breakaways.
With Jack May driving in both
sides from the high post the
Rangers ran up a 23-17 quarter
time score. •
Girls Carry
UBC Colours
They may be neglected and
they may not get much support
but the girls have been winning
steadily for UBC.
The girls grass hockey team
came out on top in the Pacific
Northwest Women's Grass Hockey Conference with a record of
live wins and one loss.
The girls have kept up the
good work in basketball also.
So far this year they have won
three of their four games against
the Normal School.
'Birds tightened up somewhat
in the second quarter out-scoring
Rangers 18-16 as they narrowed
the margin to 39-35 at the half.
John McLeod led the 'Bird attack in the first half hitting for
18 of#hl? 23 points.
The Varsity quintet overcame
their well-known third quarter
blues of last year as they poured
24 points through the hoop in the
third stanza for a 59-54 lead.
'But in the fateful fourth the
'Birds really fell apart.
Going into the final minutes
of the game they held a commanding nine point lead and
and then they had a relapse. They
tried to stall, threw the ball
away, made unnecessary fouls
and watched their nine point
lead disappear.
Holding a shaky 68-66 lead
with 30 seconds to go John McLeod instead of holding onto the
ball tossed up a shot which the
Rangers recovered and went on
to tie the game up.
McLeod vindicated   ment championship.
himself in the overtime period
sinking a foul shot with the pressure on as 'Birds outscored Rangers 5-4 for the win.
Leading Pomfret's offense as
usual was McLeod with 23
points. Geoff Craig -played a
fine game and came through with
16 points his highest total of
the season. Brian Upson also hit
double figures with 10.
Next weekend the 'Birds have
their work cut out for them
when they begin the Totem
Tournament Friday night taking
on Eilers Jewelers. Saturday
night they go against the winners of the Western Washington-
CPS game. If they win Friday
