Health Service officials had com-

too few students were taking advantage of the services they were

UBC Takes Fourth Place
With Highest Donations
Blood drive officials announced today that Mount Allison
College of Nova Scotia is the official winner of the Inter-
Collegiate Blood Donor Trophy awarded by the UBC forestry
department.
When handicap* for all universities were tallied. Mount Allison,
with an enrollment of 000 students,
led other campi by at least four
points. With the handicap computed Mount Allison had 95.21
percent.
UBC   LEADS
Although U1!C only placed
fourth it led -all other large universities with 79.14 percent or
2878 donors.
Second place went tothe university of New Brunswick with 91
percent; Saskat., 82 percent; UBC
79 percent; Alberta 73 percent;
Dalhousie, 70 percent Ouelph, 99
percent; Manitoba, 54 percent;
Queens, .">0 percent; McGill, 85 percent; Western, 18 percent; West
em, 18 percent; Toronto, 19 percent.
WORLD RECORD
t'BC won the world record for
blood donations last year when 55
percent of the students gave blood.
This year the blood clinic closed
early because students failed to
turn up during the final week of
the drive.
In the two bldbd drives held on
the campus this year UBC collected
nearly 3500 pints. With the province using about 400 pints a week
the UBC total Is hardly sufficient
to supply the provincial blood
quota for two months.
The total for the blood drives
across «the nation on colleges and
universities amounted to 13,473
pints.

Letters To The Editor
QUESTION OF THE YEAR
What Happened?
Students' Council went before the General
meeting last Thursday with an ambitious
agenda* but did not manage to nurse it past
first base.
The surgical insurance plan was to have
come up for thorough discussion. It was
quite clear that a lengthy explanation of all
the factors involved would be necessary. A
compulsory insurance scheme is not the sort
of thing you can spring on people in a refer-
Believe It Or Not
Council's actions regarding the Soviet Exchange question have been ludicrous to say
the least. The issue has been one of considerable importance to students, who have held
panel discussions, waged letters-to-the-editor
battles, and generally bitten and fought over
the whole question.
Yet, believe it or not, Students' Council
'plumb forgot' to have the ballots printed for
the referendum slated to be run along with
the third round of the AMS elections.
What is more incredible, however, is the
fact that they did not forget to print the
ballots for last Thursday's referendum.! They
sure forgot everything else.  They forgot to
endum. Discussion of this problem was
shelved, however, in the process of procedure
juggling.
The second issue that was not even given a
chance to get the axe was Students' Council's
proposed fee raise plan. Council passed it,
but did not seem to have the strength of con-
viction to broach the matter in public.| Are
you ashamed, gentlemen, for wanting more
money?
tell anyone that the balloting would be held
that day. They forgot to set up all the ballot
stations.
As a result, less than fifteen per cent of all
the students on this campus voted on this
.question.
Council was firm in their refusal to allow a
vote to those students who—ignorant of the
referendum—did not have their AMS cards
with them. But if council wants students
to follow AMS rulings to the letter, they
should at least be prepared to follow even the
most rudimentary common-sense rulings
themselves.
From The Brink Of Death
Amongst all the clamour fur budget increases one notable voice was missing. The
Special Events Committee evidently must In-
satisfied with the pittance they operate on.
Special Events were plucked out from
under the wings of LSE and handed over to
the Arts Undergraduate Society. This step
was supposed to bring AUS back to life. Instead we see now that Special Events have
been doomed to share the death throes of
AUS.
LSE dropped the Special EverfTs Committee because the organizational burden of trying to run such a program detracted from
LSE's primary functions of co-ordinating the
activities of its subsidiary clubs. Only LSE,
however, has the backing and prestige to set
Special Events back on its feet. Here, indeed,
is a task worthy of the cultural aspirations of
the Literary and Scientific Executive.
£cepticuA
"A car is a car is a car."
It just isn't so, Gertrude. There's a whale
of a difference between cars.
ALL cars will roll downhill. Most cars will
roll along a level stretch. SOME ears will
even roll uphill.
We have a car. It's SOME ear, but it won't
roll uphill. Il always seems to take the attitude that if we are too lazy to walk up that
hill, there is no good reason for it to roll up
there.
There's nothing wrong with our car. It
only suffers from a mental and nervous disorder caused by senility. Not that il is really
that old. In fact, we would say it has grayed
prematurely. Must be our driving.
However, there is no cause for despair.
Our car still has four wheels.
ALL cars have four wheels by definilion.
If they lose two or more wheels, they won't
roll. If they lose one, they merely roll over
into a ditch. Cars, therefore, have four
wheels (Q.E.D.).
Car wheels are, or should be round. If
tlhey are not, they make a noise reminiscent
of the elippety-clop of horses. This j'ives ear
riding not. only a romantic flavor but also a
definite touch of adventure. You never quite
know into which round hole a square wheel
will get you.
While our car may be downhearted il is still
quite sound in body. True, the body has a
few flaws, but then bodies do not mailer. During the day ears are used lor utilitarian purposes and pulchritude does not count. At
night, out on more romantic pursuits, body
Haws can be disregarded too. Tho darkness
usually covers up the blemishes.
The engine is more important.I It spells the
difference between getting there and getting
stuck halfway.
If you get stuck halfway up a hill, it still
gives you the opportunity of rolling down half
a hill. If, however, you get stuck at the bottom of a hill, let the fact that NO car has
ever rolled up Mount Everest console you.
Getting stuck on level ground is much
worse. But even this has its consolations.
Look at all the gas you'll save by having somebody push you homewards.    <
Briefly then, there can be nothing wrong
with a car until it refuses to do anything but
roll downhill. At this stage of the game you
may think the ear has had it. It hasn't. You
have!.
You may want to pull the engine out to
sell it lo the junkman. Don't. It can still be
useful as deadweight in your downhill rolls.
It seems that we are defeating our own
purpose. We have practically proved that
Gertrude Stein was right. A car is a ear is a
car even if we are sometimes tempted to call
il by other names.
If you doubt that YOUR car is a CAR, just
.stuff some of that green stuff down its gullet,
4
but never give in to the temptation of selling
it. You might lose money. In fact, if people
could get rid of their cars without losing
money, ninety per cent, of all ears would disappear.   Ours would; that's sure.
if, x, if.
We never thought we'd see the day:
In a magazine ad the other day Company
A look its "hat off" to Company B because
ihe hitter's product had been proven superior
to A's product in competitive tests.
Insurance Scheme
Mr. Ivhii FeltiKiiii.
President, Students' Council.
Hear Sir:
Two years ago iny associate,
Mr, Lome Eddy, presented to
your Mr. Bagshaw and Professor
Jennings, a proposal tor surgical
coverages such as Is ln existence
at the present time at Queens
Unlvrslty, Western) McOill, and
several other smaller colleges
throughout the Knst.
The presentation was ln the
form of the Queens University
Campus paper, outlining the
schemes that were presented to
Queens I'niversity and their acceptance of the London Life plan.
ln the summer of 1952 our
group supervisor, Mr. Blnns, was
approached for Information re
Hurglcal coverage. Since that time
however, no further information
has been requested, and according to information in the Ubyssey
those who were entrusted to analyse various plans submitted, selected tbe New York Lite plan on
the maximum basis of $250 for"
surgical coverages.
1Mb to be hoped that some misstatements in the Ubyssey may
ho corrected so the *students
might understand that the coverage Is limited to $250 and
should not be designated as taking care of "all surgical expenses." Moreover, there Is no
company that will return all premiums a hove expenses, commissions and actual payments. What
Is returned by them us well as
our compuny and all companies
operating under .similar plans Is
a refund on what we call "experience rating."
The writer and his associate,
Mr. Lorne Eddy, heartily approve
the plan us submitted but would
like to call your attention and the
attention of all the studonts( to
the schedule of operations, limited to $250 which Is totally Inadequate In view of the Increase
lu surgical fees recently enacted
by the College of Physicians and
Surgeons for British Columbia.
We also wish to submit that
our rates, although we did not
quote on the $250 basis because
that schedule Is now obsolete, are
equul to those of the New York
Life, and we believe that all
things being equal, preference
for this coverage should be given
to a Canadian Company.
For your Information our $300
schedule would cost the students
SMjc per month above the rate
quoted lor !J2."><i hy the New York
Lile. Our $2T."> schedule would

AMS And Democracy
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Democracy has never been very
efficient, they are not even dem-
be—If It remains democracy. But
not only are AMS meetings In-
nel'flclent, they are not even democratic. The root of the trouble la
that parliamentary procedure was
never meant to apply to them.
On Thursday 1500 students sat
for two hours and heard people
repeat one another. Then because
of classes or just plain fatigue
they began leaving at 2:30 with
nothing important voted on.
With perfect timing the last
speaker on the LSE-MAD introduced a motion shelving what
had been discussed lns'.de out ln
the last hour. For the next ten
minutes there motions, votes,
amendments and new motions
flying in all directions and alsq^
by then there were less tha 180
people left, a good one-third of
these tHe faithful Engineers with
two-thirds the lung power.
This   select   group   then   pro-'
ceeded to pass In a chunk and
without a word 17 AMS revision" (how ttin Knvineei-H )♦>( thft
"Intoxicating beverage clause"
get by without a comment I do
not know i; cleared up three or
four revisions; voted Students'
Council over $100 In new sweaters; and then imposed a "six
months or else" clause on the
fraternities.
I can think of several possible
ways the spirit and not the letter
of democracy could be injected
into these meeetlngs.
First, limit the discussion on
one topic to twenty minutes,
three minutes per speaker, un-'
less the majority wills differently,
Secondly, after one of the main
motions has been prepared and
discussed) thero Is to be no last
minute shelving of It.
I think the best solution is for"
Council to draw up u lUt.of mo*

'Teachers Are God's Gift
To Human Race!"- Trainee
Teach
By ELEANOR COCK
The ideal teacher has a well-
integrated personality, psychologically oriented. This implies versatility; if the little
brats don't respond to the strap,
we can apply a gun, bowey
knife, tomahawk or Judo with
equal facility.
It presupposes sympathetic understanding on his part of the
psychological manifestations of ad
descent behaviour. Realizing that
they are merely expressing and
developing   their   personalities,  ho
never upbraids his troupe of hellions for anything short of mayhem, Thus he is able to keep good
'rapport' ln the class room.
The lesson organization of the
Ideal teacher Is always systematic
but, at the same time, flexible.
There Is ulways time to listen to
the World Series or to visit the
circus in the interests of developing "correct and acceptable social
attltutdes."

Lament Of The Normal Child
(With Fife and Bagpipes obligato!)
I was strolling past a schoolhouse when I spied a sobbing lad,
His little face was sorrowful and pale.
"Come, tell me why you weep," I said, "and why you seem
so sad."
And thus the urchin lisped his tragic tale:
The school where I go is a mod- Q>- — —~
Or everywhere lay on with creak-
em school
tVlth numerous  modern  graces.
And  there  they  cling  to  the
modern rule
Of   "ch e r 1 s h   the   problem
cases!''
From nine to three I develop me
I dance when I'm feeling dancy
Whm. $ (Dia.
When I die
Bury me deep
So I can have
A good long Hleep
Put a re^l pencil
At my head,
And tell the Teacher Training
Class I'm dead!
Put a lesson plan
At my feet
And toll the birds
That sllnce Is swliet.
Put a gardenia
On my chest
So I  can look
My very best.
Spare your tears,
And mourn for me never
I'm going to do nothing
For ever und ever!

from starving. He Is highly Imaginative; in his classes geometry,
clausal analysis and the theories
of Internal combustion are as romantic and exciting as "Arabian
Nights," "The Adventures of Marco Polo," and "Kitty."
COMPLITI WITH IINSTIIN
It goes without saying that he Is
intelligent and well read. In fact,
he is a walking encyclopedia. He
can explain, at the drop ot a hat,
the philosophical implications of
Wordsworth's egocentrlsm, the Intricacies of the Jet engine, the
Einstein theory, Darwin's theory
of sociology and the psychological
ramifications in Li'! Abner. He has

The Ideal teacher Ir strong-
strong enough to trounce the biggest lunk in the classroom If the
occasion demands. And he's athletic, too. The athletic teacher is
liked, esteemed, and copied by the
admiring pupils. Unsuccessful attempts to beat his record at pole-
vaulting or ski jumping will adequately reduce the numbers of the
student body.

In personal appearance the ideal
teacher is neat and clean—being
an enthusiastic promotor of Bryl-
cream, Pepsodent, Lifebuoy, and
Tip-Top Tailors. He's handsome
enough to keep the girls from
skipping class but not enough to
distract them  from their studies.
In disciplinary matters he is always decisive, fair, reasonable and
Impartial, handing out blows right
nnd left with no prejudice as to
the age, sex, she or conduct of
the recipients.
Ot course, like all well Integrat
ed persons he is even-tempered
and, naturally, never holds a
grudge. After the besting he Is
cheerfully willing to hang up the
whip and forgive the offenders.
SUPER-HUMAN   RACE
The ideal teacher Is also modest
but self-assured, kind but not sentimental, enthusiastic about hi*
work but not a slave to lt. He Is
aduptable—skilled In «n unlimited
number of hobbles—and cheerfully participates In all extra- cur-
rlcular activities. And he Is healthy-—extremely, because he has to
subsist on less than four hours
sleep a night.

Conference Report
■y WILL PRESTON
From January 26 to 29, it was my privilege and pleasure
to represent the University Student Teacher's Society of UBC
at the Western Canada Student Teacher Conference in Calgary.
Eight  teacher-training Institutes* ;    T :     7~~~,
recognized as   a  professional   per-
from  the  four  western  provinces, Hon   after   a   ten-month   'training
were represented und discussions
were held on topics affecting stu
dents In these schools.
These topics Included Improvement of practice teaching, professional spirit, and in-service training. Kmphnsis was placed on the
practical situation for we fully realized that the teacher shortage
in some provinces Is reaching the,
point of disaster.
•
COURSES  THEORETICAL
Delegates felt that courses, in
the main, were far too theoretical; instructors fail to keep ln
mind the actual classroom situations which the prospective teacher will face.
The conference also went on record as favoring a two-year Normal
School course, for It was agreed
that   a   teacher   could   hardly, be
term.
PAID  CRITICS
We felt that teachers who were
asked to serve as critics by teacher training schools ought to be
more thoroughly acquainted with
the problems facing the student
teacher and that these critics
should receive some form of re
numeration for this additional task.
Resolutions were formulated In
these various problems; these will
be forwarded in booklet form to
the provincial Departments of Education, teacher training institutes j thiisiastically
und other groups concerned. {other things)

Tuesday, March 24, 1953
Sports Editor -.Bill Hutchinson
Queen's University Here
Thursday With Jack Kyle
Ubyssey Scribes
Pick Highlights
Spring is almost here, and with spring comes hay fever,
young love and exams. Since this is the truth, sad to say, now
is the time for all pubsters to follow them to the -den of
learning.
Following the usual custom, Ubyssey scribes have picked
the outstanding individual in each UBC sport for the preceding
year. The individual is not necessarily a player and the selections are supposed to be a little more objective than the usual
hero worship type of sports page selections.
Probably the toughest selection was in football. Despite the not-too-
successful season, a number of individuals were outstanding. In our
opinion IIOH HINDMAUCH and JIM BOUI.OING tojiped the list. Mini-
march, captain of the Thunderbirds, was an Inspiration to his teammates
on and off the field. A fin-minute man. his steady defensive work and
spectacular pas-s-eiteliing helped brighten the Tliunderbird's season.
Freshman Boulding was almost unstoppable In his first few games
and then was hampered by Injuries later in the season. He Insisted on
playing with a painful knee injury, did all the plunging from his fullback
spot, played defense and even took over the passing chores when Gordie
Flemons was Injured.
9ft     •   9ft 9ft
BRNIE NYHAUG was the surprise selection in basketball. In his
first year with the Bird's, Nyhaug rarely played a bad game. Although
he didn't match the scoring fents of the second choice. JOHN McLEOD,
Nyhaug was one of^ the best defensive centers In the Evergreen Conference although he was the smallest.
Ernie earned himself the title of "The Shootless Wonder" as he
seemed content to let his mates do the scoring.
It was no contest In swimming. JERRY MARltf'wag In a class by
himself. The Czechoslovaklan student was the meal ticket for UiBC
In all the meets.
9ft 9f> If*
A surprise selection to some may be the choice of DON OLEIC in
soccer. Glelg edged out high-scoring Bud Dobson with his steady playing
and deceptive.ball-handling.
■HOWIE LEAR wa« the choice for the Chiefs. Chasing him to the
wire was V. Fred (Hugo, Luke, Three-Finger) Edwards, Colllngwood's
Jim Thorpe.
9ft 9ft 9ft
Rushy was another tough choice Final vote gave the top award
to tho Irrepressible Chimp, DANNY OLIVER. Danny led his team by
example and as Albert Laithwaite says, "There Isn't a 160-lb. player
anywhere with more guts."
JACK SCOTT copped the duke for the Braves rugger squad. Scott
just has the tough luck to be attending UBC at the same time as The
Chlmjp or he would be scrum-half for Thunderbirds.
On Tomahawks KEN URQUHART was the choice while BRUNO
CANDOUCI took the same honor for Redskins. j
9ft 9f* if*
In minor basketball STU MADILL was picked top man for Jayvees. j
Madill jumped from high school ball to place among the 10 top.st-orers
In the Senior A loop. VAL CHRiSTIE was a chxse second In the balloting.
PETE CONNELL was best of a mediocre Braves team. EI) FOG-1

HE's NOT BAD
Here s What The Irish
Think Of Mr. Jack Kyle
(ED.—The following is taken from the "British Weekly."! On its masthead it says, "Registered at the general post
office as a newspaper." We will leave this to your judgment. The title of the piece is "A Froggy Would a Woe-ing
Go.". It is written by a rugby correspondent who was on
a speaking tour of Ireland and to all appearances being kept
very busy. It maybe will give an indication what the Irish
think of Jack Kyle who will be here Thursday with Queen's
University to play Birds.)

me that if I bore myself with dignity, even with elegance, I

UBC students will have the opportunity of seeing one of the

Ireland play Thunderbirds in the stadium at 12:30 Thursday.

Wallabies' visit in 1948 is expected, 1600 seats have been reserved lor students and will be sold strictly on a first-come,

Queens open their five-game
series in B.C. -against Birds then
play one against B.C. All-Stars,
Saturday, one against Vancouver
Reps and  two in Victoria.
Probably the most publicized
Old Country Team ever to play on
the coast, Queens boast <a star-
studded line-up of international
players and all round athletes.
Heading the list Is, of course,
Jack Kyle. Kyle, a 5'9", 178 wiil-o-
the-wlsp( is regarded as the greatest  fly-half In the world.
His record speaks for itself. At
times for Ireland. This means that
he has represented Ireland 31
times ln International play. A comparison can be drawn if you can
imagine tiiat u Canadian All-Star
team was selected and Gerry
.Main was chosen 31 times for that
team.
FORCE OF HABIT
It would seem that when picking
their international team the Irish
selectors put Kyle's name down
from sheer force of habit, then begun to choose the team.
ni a recent tour of Australia and
New Zealand by a team composed
of the top players ln the United
Kingdom, Kyle was a standout
and earned unstinted praise from
the  usually  tight-lipped Ausles.
As well as serving as captain of
Ireland's international team, Kyle
plays for the Barbarians, a very
j select amateur club and is a regular on the Northern Ireland rugby
union s(|uad. Considering all this
it is not hard to see why he is rated
the   greatest   living   rugby   player.
If ibis makes Kyle sound like
a muscle bound athletic- bum, It's
all wrong. He happens to be a
medical missionary and is rated as
great a gentleman ns lie is a
rugby player. He is .scheduled to
preach several sermons while In
Vancouver.

with six all-Americans in the lineup Is coming to little old UBC.
Queen's will bring 22 players*
one coach and one manager. Tha
absence of water boys, trainers,
assistant managers and hangers-on
show that the Irish boys can take
care ,of themselves and don't expect to have too many injuries.
The amazing Queen's team has
plenty of beef with two players at
214 .pounds, one at 200, one at 196,
one at a mere 194 and so on. Oldest
player on.the squad Is 28; youngest
19.
Seven members of the team are

in dentistry, several ln Agriculture
and even one In engineering.

•all round athletes. Robin Gregg, an
Irish international, toured Argentina with the Irish team in 1952.
Jim Matheson, captain of Queen's

and tennis for Queen's. Cecil Ped-
low, a 19-year-old centre, Is currently a sub for the Ireland vs.
Scotland game and is Irish junior
tennis champion.
Cyril Cowan, an arts student, Is
captain of the Irish schools cricket
team. Fred Anderson also toured
Argentina in 1952. J. B. Bridges
