Barred US
MONTREAL—(Special to the Ubyssey)—A former executive member of NFCUS and one-time president of the University of Montreal Student Union has been barred from
entering the United States, the American Consulate announced
here Friday. * "

Once again we arc laced with the task of enumerating

We hope, however, that by now every student on this
campus is aware not only of the need for blood and plasma,
but also of the fact that the loss of a pint of blood cannot be
detrimental in any way.
On the strength of UBC's past record, the Red Cross has
decided to close down its downtown blood clinic and remain
on the campus for three weeks. This will give everyone
ample time to donate blood.
The confidence the Red Cross has shown in UBC
students will, however, have to be maintained by a steady
stream of donors throughout those three weeks. At the
moment there sccir.s to be a tendency to delay donation**
until some later date.
The blood clinic has a normal capacity of IJ50 pints per
day. They will inevitably fall behind if they are left idle the
first two weeks and are then rushed beyond capacity in the
last few days.
The Red Cross has mobilized extra help to help us win
the Canadian Intercollegiate Blood Drive Contest. Let us
give them and ourselves a chance by keeping the Armouries

grounds that this did not const1-

was a  50.009  percent  majority).
On the rscount one of the tabulators discovered a spoiled ballot
in Goldsmith's total. This was discarded and left him with a one
vote lead over Duclos.
The committee held a meeting
and decided to have another re
count because of the error dls-
covred and to check the bullots
for 'any similar errors.
Committee member Kay Stewurt
found a Goldsmith ballot in -Duclos' lot. This gave hlm a three

Decline and Fall
The present AMS elections have set a new
record. Only five out of the thirteen seats on
Students' Council were or are being contested. Six positions went without contest
and two seats remain unoccupied because
not a single member of next year's junior and
sophomore classes found it worthwhile to
contest them.
At this point we could shift the blame for
this reluctance in running for office on the
inactivity of past Councils. However, this
is a matter of the past and it is with the future
that we must concern ourselves.
During the recent presidential campaign
it became quite clear that all the candidates
were in agreement on one point—the need
of re-organizing the AMS into a more active
entity. Ivan Feltham is, therefore, now faced
with the task of strengthening the Society
with the help of councillors who do not represent anybody. The majority of voting council members will be people who happened to
have ten friends who were willing to sign
their papers. '■•»!?
The fiasco of these elections will inevitably
result in more militant demands for a reform
of student government by creating a "representative legislature", There remains, however, the hard fact that if we cannot find
enough interested people to contest thirteen
seats, we will hardly be able to build up a
larger body cpmposed of students willing to
While we have in the past urged people to
vote, perhaps we have fallen down ui the
task of recruiting competent people to run for
office. The surprisingly large turnout at last
week's presidential elections was, after all,
but a passive indication of student interest.
The elections are not over yet. We still
have time to rectify the situation. Apart
from the obvious steps of extending the deadlines, for the positions of Junior and Sophomore members, something will have to be
done about the positions which, were occupied
by acclamation (or more aptly, by default).
Students' Council should declare open all
positions which were not contested in the
elections. At the same time a more intensive
search could be made for eligible and competent candidates for the offices of AMS secretary, USC chairman, LSE president, WAD
president, Public Relations Officer, and Coordinator. ,
These suggestions will probably be objected
to as unconstitutional, but at the moment
they seem to be our only means of preventing
a further degeneration of student government and even more drastic decline in interest
next year.
What? Here Too?
With all the recent furore over the nicotine
epic at the Avon, the banning of French films
(to say nothing of Italian actresses) and the
suppression of crime comics it is somewhat
ironical to find the same typo of lewd influence in the midst of our staid, dignified institute of learning.
The majority of UBC students are probably
unaware that the bookstore, run by the administration, is daily corrupting the morals of
our young freshettes by distributing the
more extreme forms of pornographic literature and immature tabloids devoted to the
20th century idols of Se^t and Crime.
The magazine rack at the bookstore contains the usual type of periodicals synonymous with an intelligent, discriminating type
of university student. Harpers, Atlantic
Monthly, U.S. Affairs, Mayfair, Boy Birdwatchers Guide, and other magazines of
equally reputable standing are included in
the repertoire.
But unashamedly open to public view the
bookstore also displays the type of pocket
size pulps labeled by owners of a sterile
imagination as Quick, Flash, Pic, People and
other soul-stirring titles.
The advertising blurbs for these periodicals
scream, "Be well-informed on world affairs
in five minutes."
They forget to mention that an 18-year-old
who has been gazing at the various anatomical
details of Miss Marilyn Monroe will be "hot
and bothered in three minutes" and will be
in no mood to go to a Physics lab.
It is bad- enough for the high school crowd
to sink into depths of depravity at the magazine stand of Sam's Corner Snack Bar, but
when the pride of UBC, our pink-cheeked
freshettes, have to be exposed to the same
type of sensuousness in our own bookstore it.

be most Interesting to hear what
our students have to say about
what they saw, heard and did

In the field of International R •

Ibllltles us a goodwill mission although it would be foolish to expect no criticism from either side.

It is because of Ihe present in-

want wur any move than we do.'
Speaker felt that if we openel
our minds and gave "more understanding, more thought" our attitude towards the Soviet Union
would change.
Loostnore was certain that It
Russian students exchanged with
UBC the propaganda would be balanced and future citizens ot this
country would have a deeper un-
understandlug ot the Soviet Uniou.
"Let us show that our minds are
not closed^' lie concluded,
Answering the arguments, Tom
Franck opened by comparing his
opponent, Loosmore, to St. Jeromi
who sat on a pole for 40 duys t ■
demonstrate his faith. *
"You can't hate his, because he
means well and you can't love him
because lis is too silly," he quipped.
Contending    Russian    exchange
would   be  useless,   Franck  argued
that   no  one   had   to  go  to  Nasi
Germany to know what the Naaii;
. were like. Speaker (|)iestloned whv i
it was necessary to send students j
to Russia to find out what their j
people were like. j
"Policy is made at the top and !
we have to deal with It at that '
level,'' he concluded.
ln rebuttal, LooBmore asserted
that "we want to start making
policy at our level." Shouts and
applause   greeted   this   quip.

gotten over the shock, I guess.
I'm gnashing my brain now
with the usual regrets so common to defeated candidates . . .
"if I'd only talked to one more
lecture, if I'd only put one or
two more posters . . . maybe 1
should have smiled when I
talked to that rugger hero".

Boys Eager To Win
Took in the high school football game yesterday afternoon
in the Stadium and was very
impressed by the hustle and
guts displayed by the South
Burnaby. club coached by varsity safetyrman Harry Walters.
The little; beggars, and believe
me they are little, almost
knocked off the bigger and
more polished King Edward
squad by sheer unorthodoxy
and drive.
Can anyone imagine a
quarterback calling an old1
chestnut like the "statue of
Liberty" on his own twenty I
with one minute left to play
and then having it work with
the halfback (120 pounds in
full strip) going the eighty
yards'for the T.D.!
Jelly would have a hemorrhage!

UBC students soon will be exposed to the greatest
form of entertainment since female- wrestling took over

Jokers Club has issued a challenge to the Engineers
for a basketball game in the gym at noon next Thursday.
Jokers intimated that the Redshirts can get reinforcements
from Home Ec if they feel they are not up to the task.
Anything will go in the game except the rules, which
will go out the window., Jokers promise not to use their
fire truck if Engineers can leave their labs long enough for
the brawl.
Gym Club Calls
For More Muscle
Artists On The Highbar
Mats Needed For Meet
Doug Whittle, Phys Ed instructor and coach of the UBC
Gym Club has sent out the word that the Intramural competition
in gymnastics is sadly in need of participants.
The competition is open to any •
member of the. Alma Mater Society
Speaking of Jelly, the baseball team coached by him looks
like it will have another good
year with the return of Bill
Whyte, ex-Vancouver Cap
southpaw and Al Byman, late
of the Okanagan league going
on the hill for the varsity. A
promising shortstop seems to
be Gordon Mundle of Moose
Jaw and Calgary while fellows
like Kushner, Vaselenek and
Paris will undoubtedly supply
hitting power.
In case some of you don't
remember, the baseball team
won all four of their games last
year and Coach Andersen
hopes they will repeat as there
has been thirty-four men out
to the practices so far with
more on the way.

Wondering who the new
varsity football coach will be?
Well, so are we. However, it
is rumoured that Athletic
Director Dick Penn will be
giving forth with the good news
March 1st.  Any bets?
I was (and I imagine thai
any other sports followers or
tho campus were) glad to hear
that our old hero, Robin Rob
inett, has nailed himself a good
job with the Calgary Stam-
peders   as   business   manager.
This raises my opinion of the
Calgary executive which sunl*
to an all-time low when they
fired my hero Les Lear from
the coaching spot of the Cow-
Town club last fall.
