NO. 48
Houii 6r love v.d. e«.
Love Chancellor: My Loves,
the facts, of this ease are simple
and not in dispute, the appellant.
Allss Penny Passion, * spotted Joe
Ouinp-h, the repondent, ln Prospect Park sitting on a bench rending, "it ain't what you do, but
how you do it" by Guy de Maupassant. Languidly swaying her hips,
and breathing down his "T" shirt,
•he asked: "\Vacha doln, Bud?
Hub?" To which Joe replied: "Da-
ah — Nothln' much." Penny said.
"Wind If I take the load off"
Prom this point, My Loves, the
evidence is contradictoryr At the
trial, tbe following questions, In-
teralia, were put to the appellant:
Q: Why (lid you sit down near
A. Dob — I wanted tuh see what
comic book Joe was readln. Besides, the guy looked loaded. He
looked like a soft touch.
Q. Do I understand that you are
madly in love with him?
...A: panah. Yeah. Yuh might say
Q: Would you give anything for
Joe? .
i ~
A: Shore would. '
My loves this being the rele-
lant evidence given by the appelant, 1 now turn to, the respondent's evidence. He swore he Waa
OTsbArrnssed by her buck teeth and
never ehf&oraged her in the least
and that in any case he was never
ready, wtoflng, and able to convey.
He al*6 alleges that the appellant
had unclean hands which he disliked.
' My loves, I accept the evidence
its givi|t» t»f iSfrfii Passion. I think
|he toel acted bona fide and for
her own benefit.
. The appellant claims an equit-
( able right to Joe. She ls asking
for an lnjuctlon* restraining Joe
from' seeing any female but herself. She also humbly prays that
Your l^oVes order Gumph to give
himself up upon penalty of contempt of court.
In Don Juan v No No Nannette
170Q 'CR. 1. the court held no man
had an equitable right to a woman.
The court said it would not enforce
the affirmative by the negative,
In Lover Soy v Yef, My Darling,
1910 Ch, D. 8. Goahead, C. J.-uttered dicta to the affect that women
ace acquiring more rights every
day and night that plumes. I doubt
whether  No   No  Nairn etta's  case
would hold today. *"
• i
I find, however that It is unnecessary to decide this point because
of the facts of this case 1 find
Miss Passion has an equitable
right In Joe. I realize I am overruling a decision that has held for
200 years but the law of England
ls flexible and anomalous situations must be cleared up.
This Is a court of conscience and
my conscience Is clear, accordingly, I would grunt the lnjuctlon.
iSourgrapes: L. J.: I disagree,
Miss Passion has acted fraudulently by not warning respondent of
hidden traps and dangers.
Adorable, L. J.: Vive Pamour!
Vive la difference! T. K.

If you are searching for Justice,.
Come to UBC
Not to the School of Law,-
But to Philosophy.
. They will give you a little hut       ,
Down on the Western Mali
You'll wonder if a chair is a chair
And whether the floor is the wall.
But if some day you should chance to stray
Down younder to the Eastern ftAall,
You'll find a modern glassed-in Cage
Where we await the Barman's call.
1#Keh you have surveyed the Temple
And timidly gazed with awe,
Then kneel twice on <the markle steps
And enter the School of Law.
You must humbly bow to the Intellects
A3 they go running and shouting by.
You must offer all your deepest respects.
("There, but for the grace of God, go I.")
Our constant goal is Justice
As you can plainly see.

Fare Raise
All  Transit  Fares
To   Be   Hiked  Soon
British Columbia Electric officials announced to Students
Council Monday night that fares on the university bus line
would be raised to 40c for 10 tickets in accord with raises on
bus lines throughout the city, f mmwmmmmm-""™mmmmmmmm
Speaking to AMS, Dick Bibbs a
BCE official and a former AMS
president said the company would
he forced to raise the university
bus service fares 10c more, as ot
March 15. This would be the first
raise' in price on campus since
11)26. .
Students who paid ln cash Instead of by tickets would still pay
rive cents but non-students would
pay Boven cents.
Officials announced that they
were also* approaching the BC
Board of Trade Commissioners concerning! downtown raises.
Tickets on downtown buses
would be available at four for 50c
or 13c aaplece.
Students, Council moved to oppose gie fare raise for the U'BC
district. 'Councillor Jack Lintott
pointed out that he UBC buses carry the heaviest load of people per
mile and that students therefore
deserve extra prlvledges.
It was Htigested that AMS charter BCE ibuses for rush hour periods
and sell tickets during those hours,
at a lowe rratae. The higher, rate
would be maintained dilrlng the
rest of  the day.
BCE claimed that they were losing $39,700 on the UBC buses each
year. If present rates were kept
the bus line would lose $43,750 per
year. With Increase in fares the
company maintained .they would
still be losing $36^50 a year.
If the BCE fare Increase goes
through students travelling from
Burnaby will be forced to pay from
21 to 24c. Those from North Vancouver will pay 31c and students
from Richmond will, spend approximately 2.1 to 33 cents Uf they wish
to attend UBC. ^
Average rate per student will be
33c for a round trip.
In deference to the late Kng'e
funeral, the Froth and Law executives have cancelled their

SchoolMovesFromHuts To Glass House
Six years and six months
ago, in September, 1945, 8fi
students sat down in the stage
room ln Brock Hall to learn
law. On November 19, 1951,
256 students moved 20,000
books into a brand new" $:100,-
WO glass-backed structure situated on the northwest corner
Howe Sound -and Chancellor
When Bean Oeorge V. Cifr-
tis arrived early In .September, 1945, there were students
anlxotin to learn law but no
school. In three weeks, classes were hold In Brock Hall. In
two months a law school was
set up in lints which now house
the extension department, and
lu the summer of 194fi two
larger   huts   were  erected   at
the northern end of the east
mall where, for five years students studied the 26 courses in
law. ,
The Library has grown from
a set of hare stjelves Into one
of the leading law school libraries in Canada, comprising
of 20,000 books worth $10,00.0.
The Faculty of Law, at UBC
lias compiled and published
10,000 casebooks which are
used in law schools across
Canada, as well as at UBC.
This is unique for no other
law school in Canada does this.
These casebooks are sold at
cost   lo  students.
The faculty has a regular
staff of seven. In nditlon, two
Judges anil 10 downtown lawyers contribute thousands of
dolirs worth of legal services
by donating their time lecturing.
Staff membership comprises
of iDean Oeorge P, Curtis, former Rhodes Scholar, Dr. Malcolm M. Maclntyre, graduate
of Harvard and former acting
head of the Law School at
University of Alberta; Oilhert
D. Kennedy, gold - medalist,
from Osgoode; Hall John It.
Westlabe, graduate of University of Alberta and post-graduate of University of Toronto;
Charles B. Bourne, scholar of
St. John's College, Cambridge;

Laws, Harvard, and Raymond

The   new   building,   planned
in the fall of 1949, is an all-
concrete, multi-windowed structure, built for future additions and completed on Nov-
tender 27. Comprised of a
main reading room which
seats 144 and holds thousands
of hooks, three class rooms
which doubles as reading room
and moot courts, and foyer
which serves as book distributing centre, the building ls completely  functional.
At the formal opening of the
building. W. H. M. Haldane,
K.C. Head of the B.C. Law Society, lowered a small' stone
salvaged from London's hoinh-
shaltored Inner Temple Into
the brickwork beside the main
entrance. The stone Is a link

foil Fine
B'record shows that slightly better than 47 percent
of the students voted in last week's presidential election, 10
cent more than voted last year but still a sorry showing.
If tlje half of the student body who stayed away from thd
polls will sit down and think about for in a moment they will
doubtless fed properly ashamed. But that won't alter the fact
it • new president must take office knowing that he was
first choice of about half the voters—or one-quarter of
student body. It is unlikely to fill him with overwhelming
fidence In the difficult times ahead.,
Perhaps we should ask ourselves just why more than the
half the students don't bother to vote.
| Does it mean that student affairs have deteriorated to
the point where many students feel that they are not affected
by student government?
Does it.mean that past students have bungled so badly
that students feel it is all a hopeless farce?
:     Or is H simply what we have always suspected: democracy excites only a thinking minority?
Whatever the answer next year's student should begin
right now to think about ways and means of getting more students to the polls.
Possibily a fine system would up the vote. Council might
think about it but, it might also ask whether it would increase the thinking vote.
*gvSlie trouble wit hthe legal profession is that it just isn't
keeping up to the times. Now take the condition pf the Bar in
B.C -No, smarty, not the ones in the zoo. Well, its crowded. In
ftfetfits practically a rat race ... but with a difference—it's a
liorse-nnoVbuggy rat race, instead of a modern jet job like all
other forms of modern competitive business.
.-'•• Now to begin with, we might do well to accustom the public to
a "Launch-More-Lawsuits" Week, complete with all the trimmings including a supercharged advertising campaign designed to mako tho

Then we could blossom from these rather conventional methods into
the high-pressure field.
could become as familiar a sign In the hirlng-hall as the Varga Girl. And
of course, we mustn't forget the schools:
You see the potential, don't you? Why it's tremendous .... there'll
be no stopping us-(estopping, 1 mean). Think of the signing commercials:
Poor 111 Sue

What  was  feoffee's  terrible secret?
Why was the covenant running with the land?
and in afiflee windows:

You see, the whole problem resolves Itself Into one of salesmanship,
and tho careful but Imaginative use of modern business techniques.
Once we get rolling, the prdblem of unemployment among legal minds
will be a thing of the past. More people will make use of legal procedure
rates will drop us mass-production methods become the accepted tiling,
and more law graduates switch to practicing law, the coal pits will
stand practically deserted. —TOM FRANCK.
Counsel Tangles With Newsman
... An Interesting part of
this case was the examination
of  the  chief  witness,   and  a
short account follows starting
with the counsel:
" ' Accuracy la a mutt" was
printed on the Wall, and 'only
facts are truth': bo now .looking at the facts of this case
we must separate truth from
half-truth and facts from opinion." '     '''
Witness: "I know that's
your Jolb, our job 1b just to,
stimulate discussion: ive just
throw o% our opinion. We,
paint one tide and it's up to
you to see the other' side anjl
sift out the factt from, fiction, All in fun, you know. All
for the benefit of all."
Counsel "But can't you show
the other-side of the question?
Do jini always have to heckle
everyone and create an uproar?"
W. "We don't create any
uproar; we are for* Peace. Hurrah for the Peace Movement.
Now there's something ydu
should get into. That*t really
Canadian. 1 mean the idea of
peacev it 'Canadian."
C. "Do you mean to say this
World Peace Movement I hear
about will prevent war?"
W. "Yes, it certainly will. We
will be members of an international society — a sort of
form of internationalism, you
C. "Then, I suppose there's
no need to re-arm. It's just
silly if we all join up. I sup-,
pose it does fidghten people
to re-arm, and I've even heard
it starts wars."
W. "Ob yes, tbht's the worst
thing in the world to do it
to re-arm. We are just showing
people that we want to fight,
and no one should jvant to
light. The only people that do
are those that are half-dying of
starvation." A
* C. "Oh ... Say, I hear this
Peace Campaign Stems from
the Russian Department of Ag*
ligation and Propaganda, and
that every citiaen ln the Soviet Union has signed the
Peace Appeal?" _
W. "Weil, I couldn't say; I.
think It's. Just local. Anyway,
undoubtedly it  the   Western
Governments  re-arm   It   just
moans they want war, and an
Imperialist war at that. I read
an article ln Pravda that the
Soviet State ls the symbol of
peace, democracy and socialism."
C. "Then I suppose we had
better not re-arm?"
W. "That's right. Peace is
an Ideal."
C. "Well, I suppose we in the
west after our disarmament
after the war, and now rearmament—are quite far behind
the Soviet ahd her Satellites;
since they never did tils-arm?
In fact, the Soviet is armed
to the teeth?" v,
W. "Oh no. The^ dis-wm
ed, too."
C. "Well . . . we are for
peace, but don't you think we
would /be surrendering our
freedom if we had the'Wnd of
peace they have behind the
Iron Curtain?"
W. "Certainly not!"
C. "But didn't Prime Minister fit. Laurent say that, the
real aim of the Soviet rulers
Is the domination of the world
by force or the fear of force?''
W. "Not according to Pravda."
C "Would you agree with me
if I said that humanity must
progress' towards the realisation of ultimate truth and perfection, and that this can
only come about internationally by mutual confidence and
W "I believe I do agree
that suspicion and fear can
only bo overcome by the rule
of moral law,"

"We shape our buildings and then our buildings shape
w"—Winston Churchill.
It has always been the work
of the architect to investigate
the possible extension of man
into the values of more comfortable and pleasant existence.
It has always been the work of
the lawyer to see that man's
extension into any new field is
not done without control and
caution—the* law makea sure
that man does not overleap
himself. Except over the intricacies of a contract or a mortgage, law aud architecture seldom meet. The architect has
long been acquainted with the
philosopher, the artist, the business man, and' the man ln the
street,"imt**B«Wom has he been
in contact With the Judicial
Today, the architect ls moro
than ever important for.he ls
desirous of attaining u new ar-
.chicteure to free the construction of buildings from its long
servitude to the past; he is
free to meet today's needs with
today's economies, methods,
and  materials,
Tlio architect is now probably at his greatest intellectual
and aesthetic degree of excellence.'Function and appearance
are not now the only characteristics a building must have—
much more is demanded by today's planners. For too many
years people have been living
in, houses they don't like and
working In Btirroundings they
like less. The modern architect,
realizing this, trains himself in
a field which will not only
change our places of living and
working, but will change our
entire social structure by changing our environment. Me
works doggedly and quietly.
The need for such a change ls
immense and the architect believes that such a solution, if
not" immediately at hand ls
easily In the realm of possibility.
Great changes ln the social
structure mean changes in the
law. Traditionally based on the
authority of past judgements,
the common law is usually adamant toward change of any
kind but change there Will be
an dlf the hopes and dreams of
the architect are realized, the
law will be affected profoundly.
A big step towards changing
tho environment of the international pofUiclans has been Initiated in the magnificent structure that houses the United
Nations in New York. Corfbusl-
er, one of tiie greatest modern
social architects, wrote a book
on tho planning of the United
Nntoina buildings In which he
hoped that the nations of the
world would be influenced by
the principles which went into
the design of the buildings
which were honesty, freedom,
and courage, mid that the na
tions .representatives would
bend more easily to their task
of straghtenlng out a confused
and disorderly world.
Such a hope is not untenable
as Conbusler himself knows,
for If, his enlightened plan (or
the League of Nations building
had not been subsltuted for 1
dbsigned by meaner minds, the
history of the League might
have been far different
Seldom has the architect had
the opportunity to show lawyer proof of the Improvements
that could be made ln the Judicial environment. Depressing
court houses with redundant,
monumental stairways, dingy •
halls and dark court rooms
have always been the abode of
the lawyer.
It will probably be decades before architect can give functional design to judicial buildings, but at present it is too expensive and difficult to renovate them. Tho architect works
patiently and quietly. No more
is it "frozen music" as Uoetbe
described lt but is a vibrant
force which will affect even
Architecture changes the social structure by changing the
environment, the law regulates
conduct In that new environment nnd It Is not fanciful to
suggest that ft great change ln

I will endeavour not to extend

not to Inflict further financial burden on student clube ahd activities.
By building the "huihed-up" bowling alleys before the more expensive swiming pool, the alley pro*
fits will help to finanace the pool.

College Sports A Problem;
Keep Them On The Campus
(There is a guest editorial from the Queen's Journal concerning the long drawn out basketball .scandals in the United
States of America.—Editor.)
(Journal Sports Writer)
The recent reports from New York would seem to indicate
that college players are not as afraid of big time gambling as the
aelre stories would have Joe Fan believe. #
Junius Kellogg, the Manhattan College basketball sport's
whose report of a bribe offered touched off the biggest sport's
scandal since the Black Sox fix of 1919, is living a perfectly normal life just one year after the story hit the headlines.
All this would seem to indicate that the large majority oi
college athletes are more interested in the game than* in picking
up a cheque afterwards. True enough, 31 college stars have
already been convicted, and this, added to the 90 West Point
cadets, makes a total of 121. This, however, is only a fraction o
the total of students in American universities.
The total is insignificant ... or is it?
In the land of the "almighty dolar," there are those who
would make an easy buck at. the expense of the boy who would
like to get a college education and is, perhaps, more efficient
on the gridiron than on an English essay. He will find the going
easy at first, then he will perhaps find that his sports will take
more of his time.
This may be all very well but it will not help the boy pass
his exams. If he fails, he will no doubt be granted some form
of parole to keep hiim eligible. Finally, without a degree, he may
start on his way. What has his sports' ability done for him?
So far* we have only dealt with the factual side of this
issue, as to the theoretical side we must draw some conclusions.
The colleges south of the border' with their beautiful, multi-
million dollar stadia and field houses may be very impressive,
but we should not "judge the book by the cover."
The criteria of a college sport should be that any boy at
that college should have an equal opportunity to make the
varsity team. He should not have to compete against a professional draft system wherein the, high school talent is bought
by the college with the most money.
Let's hope that.the Canadian colleges will learn by the
error of their U.S. cousins, that there is no place in college
athletics for professionalism.
Let's keep university sport on the campus.

scoreless draw.
Varsity started the game with
eleven men In strip, and when left
winger Ken Campbell sprained his
foot in the first half, a former bird
who left UB9 before Chi-istmas,
Don Gleig, -was called from tiie
stands to help the Varsity cause.
* Gleig ls still a singed player for
the Varsity squad, .and was played
although the Varsity Constitution
says that only those attending UBC
are  eligible.
Varsity had control of the game
in the first half, but could not put
the bail into the net. In the second
half, the Hotelmen took over and
but for the sterling work of Mike
Puhach, would have scored on several opportunities.
The, UBC Chiefs were plowed
under 12-0 by the classy Labor
Craft Crew.
Che youthful students were no
match for the more experienced
Craftsmen who were ln complete
control throughout the game.

ragged, both teams repetintertly
fumbling poslble scoring opportunities
Kvcn such capable players as
Hay Fee nnd Jink Scott, both
of whom bandied themselves
extremely well when playing
with the Thunderbirds, messed
up what could have been dangerous   attacks.
Vindex on two or three occasions very nearly scored and
It was the whole hearted efforts or full back Peter von
llarten that saved the Braves
from being down at the half.

Uraves more than atoned for
their earlier weaknesses. First
try of the game went to stand

exceptionally pretty run good
for three points. Captain Jack
Scott booted the conversion
cleanly through the posts.
At this time tin* Uraves threo
quarter line showed tho form
of which it Is capable. Minutes
after the initial try Palmer
cleverly engineered a play

unmarked. Gathering up a pass
from tlip diminutive stand-off
Oates galloped clown the outside for the second try. Scott
again converted.
Vludexers managed to halt
the rampaging Braves at this
point. There speedy three quarter Hub Wright laterally had
