Normal School To
Unite With UBC
A new Faculty of Education will be established on the
campus, Education minister Ray Williston announced Wednesday when he introduced a bill to put all teacher training in
B.C. under a single authority.
In accordance with this legis
lation UBC Senate Wednesday
ammended University regulations to permit establishment of
a college of education on the
campus, which will result from
a union of Vancouver Normal
School and tiie present UBC
Teacher Training School.
Victoria normal school will
become a part of Victoria College, which will sever connections with the School Board to
become a government institution
of higher learning connected
with UBC.
The college will continue to
teach the first two years of Arts.
Williston has not yet indicated how the project will be fin-

Despite the peril of being labelled hackneyed, The Ubyssey must once again drag out the old accusation of apathy
among the student body.

second slate, and the one post on the third slate are all part

"Solidarity Forever," that half-forgotten old war song,
came to mind again with the merger of the American Federation of Labor and the Congress of Industrial Organizations.
Wednesday was indeed a day the labor movement had
awaited for years.
But it was also a iday that presages others of great
gloom. The union of the two labor groups raises serious
problems, even apart from practical administrative difficulties.
The CIO and AFL have traditional differences which
will not be reconciled without much strife.
The AFL is organized on a craft basis, the CIO through
industrial divisions; the CIO is more political—and leftist—
that! the more conservative and nonpartisan AFL.
Oh top of these diferences lie regional hatreds arsing
from years of fierce competition, picket-breaking and- raiding.
It will take real effort to overcome these obstacles to
harmonious union. Once it is 'done however, the greatest
threat of them all will still remain; the threat of a corrupt
and tyrannical union dictatorship.
There have been many exposes of boss unionism over
the years, stories of racketeering, savage beatings.and graft.
These conditions, however, did not easily survive as long as
there Was a rival local for the men to turn to.
But a one-union system offers no such protection. It
will be much more susceptible to dishonesty and injustice.
The labor movement will find the coming years its
greatest challenge.
Distant   Pastures
The past three days has brought forth the statements
of council candidates who were, in varying degrees in favor
of rejoining NFCUS.
It is hoped that further candidates for the council offices
remaining to be contested will be asked why they consider
NFCUS so important and whether they have ever seen fit
to turn out to a NFCUS committee meeting.
Tiie suport given those who will be boosting NFCUS as
a campaign issue in the next two weeks will probably be
equal to the support given tho NFCUS committee in the
past three years by the student councils.
Whatever support the committee has had this year has
come from eight students, lour of these from Eastern universities and four from the University of Alberta student council.
There shall no doubt be in the next few weeks stuidents
seeking appointment to the chairmanship of the NFCUS
committee. The attraction for tho work of NFCUS is always
greater after the year's work has been done.

I CAN'T THINK of any

an article I saw in a periodical the other day. I think it

To get back to it, the article
was written by a Dr. Hooch
Frausgoold and dealt with thc
parking question almost exclusively.
He did recite two anecdotes
about his second wife as 1
recall and mentioned Liberace
in passing, #out on the whole he
was concerned with parking.
Describing the parking problem in his inimitable scientific-

the protective shield of "too-

mened. He referred the reader
to Edgar Allan Poe when dealing with the latter point.
Well anyway, Frausgoold
goes on to tell how he personally demonstrated the worth
of what he chose to call his
"grand idee de la truck zone."

NFCUS Choice.
The Editor, The Ubyssey:
Pat Carney made it quite evident in the Ubyssey on Tuesday that the student political
machine resorts to gerrymander to attain is ends. "Without
doubt most of her predictions
are the inevitable selections.
Nevertheless, I oppose her opinion in the selection of the
NFCUiS Chairman.
Neither Alade Akesode nor
Ron Longstaffe participated in
NFCUS activities this year- I
am not judging the abilities of
these men; I am judging their
right to be appointed to such
a position, and thus be spokesmen for an important campus
committee for which they have
not prepared.
No, Miss Carney, they are
not "entitled" to throw their
hats 'into the arena."
If her nomination were my
choice, I would support Ann

with the committee this year.

Editor, The Ubyssey:
I take exception to your editorial asking people not to vote
for fraternity members for the
Sudent Council. No one has
given better service to the university ^nd the Council than
Its fraternity and sorority
What is behind all this agitation against fraternities? Now
we hear there' is an attempt to
remove "religious discrimination" and force them accept
members of other faiths besides the Christian. We should
ponder on just which people
have the most to gain if they
are accepted into organizations
which formerly barred them.
Students should read some
bulletins of the Canadian Intelligence Service which will
show frankly which international financial group has the
most interest in circulating this
anti-Christian  propaganda.
Why should our fraternities,
which are upholding their ethical principles be asked to accept non-Christians? We should
be proud of the type of student
that has been on the Council
for the last couple years, and
we don't need the malicious
advice of the Ubyssey editor to
tell us who to vote for.

UN Club Replies
Editor, The Ubyssey;
In answer to your correspondent Anne Seejo, who suggested that the U.N. Club hold a
mock "emergency meeting" to
discuss Far Eastern situations,
I wish to point out that thc
Club just this past week-end
completed such a two-day conference with American students from Portland, Oregon.
After the Conference, it is
safe to say that I believe that
both our American friends and
ourselves have gained a deeper
insight into the differences in
attitude to such problems as
Indian  and  Formosa.
At the same time, only today
the U.N. Club sponsored a successful panel discussion on the
problem of Formosa from an
International Law aspect.
Further opportunity for discussion and education on Far
Eastern problems will be available when the U.N. Club holds
its Model Assembly on an "International Police Force" on
Feb. 28th. This writer firmly
believes that the problem of
Formosa is only part of a much
larger one. that of International
Communism, and that there is
no need to have emergency
meetings every time the Reds
or the U.S. makes a move. Instead we must simply be constantly vigilant.
Yours sincerely,
Ted Lee, President
U.N. Club.
Architecture Plans?

The object of this competition

Out of 650 entries, the 13
designs on display were supposedly the finest work. At
least one half of these winning
designs would be failed if submitted as a design problem by
a Third Year student at the
UBC School of Architecture.
Few of the plans indicated any
depth of comprehension of
family living. Many plana
contained glaring faults which
would be sufficient to drive
any normal family to the divorce courts; circulation was
tortuous, and room spaces
were poorly proportional for
their functions.
Again, in almost all the
schemes, there was an obvious
lack of comprehension of aesthetic value. Massing and proportion, texture and color, and
all the implications of these
basic architectural tools were
apparently completely neglected «or unknown to 80% of the
The standard of presentation,
while excellent in three or

The uniform will of the engineers dominated the election
of the grad class executive, held
in Physics "202, Thursday noon.
All posts were filled by engineers with the exception of
Dorothy Brown, 4th year nursing, who was chosen for the
position of secretary by acclamation. John • Nodwell, Ray
Johnson ,Bob Gale, each graduating engineers, -were elected for
president, social convenor and
treasurer, respectively.
Supporting speeches for the
candidates were a formality.
Realizing the pre-arranged support from his buddies, Bob
Gale's seconder's entire speech
was: "He's an engineer and I
hope all you fellows vote for
him." They did.
Some resistance was given the
engineers when one commerce-
man was nominated to each position- But the commercemen
were hopelessly outnumbered;
as one engineer commented:

Birds and Rowers Clash
In Friendly Revenge Tilt
Other Three Teams
To See  Full  Action
Now that the McKechnie Cup has been returned to its
familiar niche on the gym trophy shelf, one might suspect- that
local rugger was done for the season. If so, one would be
wrong. Rugby ain't over noihow.
At  2  p.m.  Saturday  at  the*
Owen  Bowl Thunderbirds
spread their mighty wings against Rowing Club, Miller Cup
victors, in an invitational match.
Rowers Impressively scuppered
the Birds last outing, and feel
that a repeat over the new B.C.
The big day for Varsity's
embryonic boxers is slightly
ovtr two weeks away. The
tplash of fist against punching
bag—human or leather — is
daily heard resounding
throughout the gym from the
boxing floor.
With such as Cesar "El Toro"
Volvinados demonstrating his
bob, weave and flashing jab;
football's bubbling Paul La
Pointe's murderous roundhouses
and Gary Williams' lethal
crouch and panther-like assaults;
the show should, like its contestants, pack a wallop.
Deadline date for entries is
February 23. Names should be
submitted as soon as possible.
Since there is a junior (novice)
and senior (open) categorie for
all weights, a gallant yet unexperienced engineer can enter
junior class and will not have
to fight a ruthless wordly-wise
fraternity ruffian, who is an
"open" scrapper.
Don Coryell, who gives as
much of his time as he can to
training, is hopeful of a better-
than ever turn out. Every year
at Varsity is "better-than-ever."
The absolute In better-than-ever-
ism was passed several years
ago at UBC, and still we are
champs would be mighty sweet.
Over in Connaught Park,
Braves take on Meralomas in
Carmichael Cup play, while on
the Aggie Field the now-winning
Blurbs bare their blooded claws
against the Tomahawks.
The next rugger attraction,of
note is the noon hour "grudge
struggle" between Braves and
Thunderbirds on Thursday, 17
February. The winners will be
the unnoficial "Owen Bowl"
Champions," and as a reward
will be awarded Mr. John Owen
as an annual prize. Some incentive: price 25c.
On Wednesday the 16th at
noon in the auditorium, the Pep
Club will sponsor a "Bait the
Bears" variety show, at which
the Totem City Jazz Band will
provide the necessary noise. This
entertainment will be top-line,
and only one body per seat will
be acceptable in the aud. — Fire
Birds Not
Home On
Jack Pomfret will be putting
his Bird basketball five's heads
in not one but two lions' mouths
this weekend when he takes
them south.
Birds will meet Eastern Washington and Whitworth in an effort to break their once tied
record of two Evergreen Conference wins.
Whitworth are the big boys in
the conference, and have beat
birds once before. Eastern, of
course were the first victims of
Pomfret's men this year, and
will be out to avenge their loss.
Both teams are hard to beat on
their own floor.
Ralph "Buz" Hudson will not j
be making the trip, being tied up

Varsity Gunning
For Win Streak
Varsity will be shooting for
their second soccer win in a row,
when they take on Royal Oaks
on the campus while Chiefs will
journey over to Confederation
Park to face North Burnaby Legion, this Sunday.
A win for Varsity would boost
their chances ot finishing among
the top four. Royal Oak Drugs
who have been riding along in
fourth place most of the season
should provide plenty of competition.
Varsity's scoring punch of
Bruce Ashdown and Stan Glasgow are hoped to pump home
some goals. The Varsity defense
which stood up well last week
proved that with a couple of
goals they can hold the opposition off long enough for a win.
Chiefs, who tied Vancouver
General Hospital 4-all, last week,
.will be shooting for a win. If
they should continue to score
well as they they did last week,
they may give North Burnaby
a rough game.
