Whether she would step down

Lyon told the meetln that "it

At the same meeting, student
Foster Isherwood introduced a motion calling for backing of a move

Several members protested that
such a bridge.might "not In present steel crisis be in the best interests of the Canadian economy."

Piano Concert Here Soon
Mr. John Brockington, Fine Arts
Editor of the Ubyssey, will present
his next concert ln May, 1956. Ho
will figuratively swing Into action
with a rare composition by Trotsky
called the 1917 Overture (Bolshevik.)
The concert, which was previously scheduled for 19"*5, was postponed when ffltockington was bitten ln the neck by <\n ardent music
lover after a particularly passionate performance. The injury, which
considerably hampers his style, Is
being worked on b*f trainer Johnny   Owen.   Says   OWen,   "Brocky
should be in there pitching by the
beginning of the season."
As this ls the first time Brockington, a prominent figure on the
Publications Board. had played
since the last time, many of his
fans who tlmded him this year will
be looking forward to doing so
Because he thrives on adverse
criticism (there are many fantastic rumors concerning what Mr.
Brockington thrives on,) he has
begun practicing with great gusto
In an attempt to regain his position «s the epitome of the acme.
At i this concert he will play for
the first time in history the Allegro con Lento, from The Chartered
Bride, by Sweatana, and a modern
composition, the AMS Suite.
These two works were also played at a concert 10 years ago.
A sell-out is predicted for this
concert, and tickets are on sale
now at the 8PLUT ln Moscow.
If there is no well-out, Mr. Brockington and his side-kick, Slim, will
be seen soliciting on the UBC cam
pus. Campus RCMP officers questioned if action will be taken against soliciting in a public place, replied, "no comment.''

Some of UBC's outstanding poli•<•

charges of "political leaning."
Defendants denied any connection with the "provincial attitude
of either Liberal or Conservative
"In the modern age a 'political
machine is no longer a chip off
the old block," bresldent Vaughan
Lyon tokl student council legislators.
"Thc smooth lines of tho machine are gone, and even red tape
is being credited to the Free Communists Seamstress's Association."
Student Ron Cbeffln took a more
conservative tack on  the issue.
"It's purgery," he said.
"The people expect a politician
to swear allegiance to the flag,
and to more liquor, and to less
drinking, and to better paid professors, and to fewer lectures, and
to giving more more money to

with the first:
Haggis McBagpIpe, who hails
from the bra, brlch land o' the
heather (Scotland, to be more
exact), is in town, and he's looking
for his brother.'
If his brother, Sporran McBagpIpe, is in town, he could get in
touch with his brother Haggis by
depositing his own nickel in any
pay phone and calling HA 0000-L.
Or better still, Haggis says, "Just
fell him to send me the half farthing he owes me."
That's the only reason he came
to town, I believe.
Crime Pays: Hour by Hour had
another request, this time from
Joe Crime of Ladner, who says he
ls tired of having people make
fun of his name.
"Whenever I go Into a beer
parlor, my friends shun me," Joe
complains, "because they believe
that Crime doesn't pay."
Joe says he would like to meet
a nice, honest gangster who be
lieves that Crime does pay. "If
I do," Joe promises. I'll prove it by
buying him a beer."
Small World: How small can the
world get? Morris Snark, 101*'
Vine, found out the other day.
Down watching tho seagulls on the
dock, Morris accidently met his
twin brother, Leon, whom he had
not seen for six days..        *
And to top it all off, Morrill and
Leon got to comparing their family backgrounds. Ahd what (io you
think, begad*? They found they
both had the same mother!
Here's How; Jack Spratt, 101
Yukon, phoned the other day to
say he finally got a "29" crib

been playing'like mad all week.
"It was the first time I got a

Lyon Growls
(Daily Providence Political Reporter)
B.C.'s hard-pressed, much harassed government may
get a new leader. And it's going to be rough.
Vaughn L. P. Lyon, 1104 Laburnum president of UBC's
7000-member $150,000-a-year Alma Mater Society today announced that he would "bomb his way" to the presidency of the
B.C. Liberal Party.
Youthful, blonde, square-headed Lyon says his resignation
as president of the AMS will be effective immediately.
At a storm-tossed, resolution be-?~
set meeting of the UBC Student
Liberal   Club.   Lyon  said:   "WhatI
these do-nothing, premium hiking!
Liberals need Is a firecracker under them"
(Informed sources told this newspaper that the reference to "firecracker" Implied that he would
force and violence. Another source
says he has already been promised
the support of Nigel Morgan and
his well-known team of professional  boBib-throwers.)
Meanwhile, In Victoria, Premier
Byron I. "Bosj Johnson, Room 304
Empress Hotel, said his government would "stand and stand for
at least two ears."
"I don't care If he throws an
A-Bomb at me. Im not afraid of
A-Bombs. In fact the opinion of
this government has always been

Outspoken Mr. Cruickshp'' who
will be remembered for his forthright statement that "I'Vaser Valley phoneVgirls are the prettiest In

"This Is what the government
needs. A damn good bomb. The

wears his britches two sizes larger
than presently needed."

We had a very dull day down

Unless, of course, you count that
, slightly curvaceous blonde who
said she was a UBC co-ed. A
nice-looking kid, too, you'd
never guess she'd haul her fiance into court' merely for pulling
her hair ln the lounge of tbe
women's dormitory aft UBC.
Seems it all started when her
boyfriend called for her ln his
1937 convertible. Instead of
parking the car, she said, and
coming up to the door of the
dormitory and asking for her as
any well-mannered young man
would be expected to do, he
just sat there in his convertible
and honked.
"That's right, he Just sat there
and honked," and the slightly
curvaceous blonde who we'll

We were all Inclined to agree

t her to go running out every time
a car honked.
"After about five minutes of
honking, Tommy suddenly leaped out of the car, dashed Into
tho dorm and pulled me by the
hair out to the car..
"I don't think that was very

Tommy was the picture of Injured male vanity when he took

Vancouver's dally newspapers

Jouncll meeting, held Monday to
iry UBC "engineers for the death
)f 288 people, and the destruction
if $200,000 worth of private property.
"The story wasn't worth two
inches ln the bottom left haad
corner of page 36," ex-president
Vonie Donaldson said today.
"It would have been more ln
line if it had been run in the
b'rth column of classified advertising."
She described the news coverage
as "too accurate for tlite best Int-
arests of the student' body."
"It was not for the good of
UBC, and certainly not worth mentioning that 15 engineers were
sentenced to death for their actions,'' she said.

had been given too much adverse
publicity ln the Ubyssey,- as a
result of Council Investigations.
"Council exonerated campus politicians at a meeting called to exonerate columnist Jim Banham for
charges which had failed to exon

only -ones who weren't exonerated

It social adjustment possible
for a person with four heads?
Yes, If the proble\ is faced realistically,; according to investigations conducted by the C~. c'la.i

People with four heads must
realise that they have many advantages. They are better balanced than people with three heads,
more Intellectual than people with
two * or one. One quick glance
suffices to tell them whether they
may cross the street at a busy Intersection. And their beer-drinking
potentialities, provided they employ a few people to feed them,
are enormous.
Is a happy marriage possible
between a man and a woman?
' Ye-es,   though   we   find   no   survey to corroborate this statement.
The problem, of course, vmust be
faced realistically. Parties to such
a union must realize that they
will have an Initial difference In
interests to overcome, but realistic facing will overcome even this.

The Ubyssey believes that the underlying implications of the recent union of the
CCF and the Progressive-Conservative Party
deserve the fullest consideration of every
student. There will be those, no doubt, who
will be so rash as to maintain that the political
philosophies of the two groups are inqom-
To them we can say only, Nonsense!
Did not John Locke, that great, philosopher of the seventeenth century, say "all
ideas are in the mind."
Moreover was it not David Hume who
is tirelessly .pointed out that all we know are
sense perceptions?
None other than Plato remarked that "at
the highest level... all things must be merged
in the form of the good."
A little good form and the CCFers and
the Tories should have no trouble getting on.
But we cannot conceal the fact that we
have doubts.
WiU the new coalition, if it becomes the
gqvernment, grant federal aid to education?
Surely the CCF principle of social justice and the Tory concept of the quest for
freedom can here, in education, merge in a
fructifying embrace.
But so far they have said nothing of
their aims on this vital question.
The time to speak is now.
Be frank, gentlemen.
Forecast Comes True
We imagine a good deal of public interest
will be aroused by the recent national coalition of the the Progressive Conservative
Party with the CCF.
The incumbent Liberal government like
all governments, has been subjected to considerable criticism. Some of it has been ill-
founded, much of it may have been wise.
This newspaper's on the spot correspondents across the nation have sensed determined efforts on the part of certain individuals and group to replace the present government for some time. It was only a month
ago that The Daily Providence predicted in
these columns that: "Political moves of considerable importance can be expected in the
It will be seen now how accurate our
predictions were.
For the CCF, the present coalition will
not likely always be easy. The socialists of
Canada have, among themselves, not, at all
times, been in complete accord.
At least those who have accused a certain faction among the CCF with allying itself wHjh the* I |Trotskyites will be convinced
that the CCF leadership is not Stalinist, It
would, indeed, be hard to imagine the Progressive-Conservative Party allying itself
with a Stalinist movement.
To the Progressive-Conservatives, the
new move should bring "kope of renewed
vigor. The people of Canada have long demanded free enterprises and social security.
The Progressive-Conservatives, in taking the
initiative in the present move, have shown
clearly that they are in favor of effecting as
healthy a combination of these factors as is

Don't Look Now, But
The coalition of the CCF with the Pro-
gressive Party is a forthright move.
It is a move which could only have been
taken by forthright men.
To Canadians it means a fresh start in
To the Tories, who have long been on
the skids, and to the CCF, long split within
its ranks, it will mean renewed vigor.
It took courage among professional politicians—in fact we might even use the old
fashioned homely word 'guts'—to effect so
bold a move.
The Vancouver Son has long hoped for
such a move, long ago wc predicted that the
Liberal government will not be able to stand
unopposed for ever." We did not fail to notice
the inevitable signs of this move.
Since this is a bold move, a forthright
move, we shall not hesitate to ask some bold,
forthright questions of the new coalition.
Do they intend to nationalize chain
cigar stores? If not, how will the rank and
file of the CCF takes so flagrant a disavowal
of section 119 of the Regina Manifesto?
Do they intend to throw our inefficient,
labor-hating post office department back to
free enterprise? If not, how will the rank and
file Tories react to this sloughing off of
their cherished principles.
Did not the much-maligned but brilliant
Tory leader R. B. Bennett say in 1931: "We
must resist to our utmost the inroads which
we see being made all over the world into
the sacred tenets of free enterprise."?

Like We Told You
Well, now that the News-
Harold's predictions of long
a*4o that the CCF and the
Progressive - Conservatives
would unite on a federal
level have been proven true
(to the intense surprise of
our evening contemporaries),
we may as well dig into the
facts and see if vve can get
some real action out of the
new group.
The international situation
—so ably analysed by the
well - known News-Harold.
New Work Times team of
top-flight reporters and our
internationally-known commentator Edward Charles
"E.G." "Ed" "E. Charles"
Martin—has seemed to call
for a new hand at the helm.
Maybe the new coalition can
give it. Maybe, too, the Liberals, who, after all, have not
done such a bad job, will be
brightened up by their newfound opposition.
But what we really want
to know what the people, of
Vancouver have a right to
know, i.s what is going to be
cone about civic-federal cooperation in the field of
The ditches of Vancouver
are a shame to out fair province, an outrage to the tour- •
ist trade, a blot to the Dominion of Canada.
The Liberal government
has steadfastly insisted that
this is a civic problem or, at
best, a civic-provincial problem.
The provincial government has insisted that it
either a civic matter or a
civic-federal  matter.
The News-Harold must in-
sits that it is a matter for
all three.

WOS-WAS's sedate banquet
was transformed Into a maelstrom of screaming feminity
yesterday as the hall was Invaded by hundreds of Brock Hall's^
notorious cockroaches.
The first Inflation that troubU
was afoot was the spectacle of
Dean Mawdley clambering onto
her chair, screaming that "spmo*
tiling was moving In her salad."
Her move was followed by
screaming co-eds, who lept antelope-like across the table and
fled terror-stricken through the
doors as the floor became a
molten mass of life.
Many crashed through the
floors as whole portions of the
floor crumbled and gave before   their   crunching   jaws.
Mary Lett. WUS president-elect, her dress torn and her face
cut from broken glass, ran to
treasurer John MacKinnon and
asked him to "get the termite

break tho council."
She intimated that dozens of
co-*eds were beln "embarrassed" by the all-pervading Insects.
WAA head, Joan MacArthur,
escaped from the wreckage, and
btent on action, mobilized the
girl's hockey team as an emergency rescue squad.
' Spear ■ headed by Ubyssey
sports writer Sheila Kearns, the
husky femmes changed into
their strips and savagely attacked the marauding cockroaches
with hockey sticks.
Despite their valiant efforts,
they failed to control the invading swarm, and several girls
were embarrassed on the spot.
Still quivering with rage and
fright, Dean Mawdsley told Ubyssey officials today:
"There's no excuse for this.
Administration knew about this
Council knew about this. But
they just let those awful termites or cockroaches or whatever
they ar* lie around the Brock
and breed and breed until they
were too many tor us. I think
that terrible Janitorsman, Brad-
smell or Bradshaw or whatever
his name is might have done
something. But, oh no!
"We might have uoen eaten
alive," she scVeamed.
She later told reporters that
ahe thought it was the worst
scandal since the much-publicized Acadia sex orgies.
Surveying the Brock after the
damage, Bradshaw shook his
head solemnly and said.
"It's no good now. We might
as well throw it away."
later he added: "It was them
women that did more damage
than anything. If they'd just sat
tliere and et their dinners and
not worry about a few little
bugs Instead of jumping through
windows and screaming and
that there wouldn't be so much
damage. Besides there's a regulation about jumping through
windows. If they don't like bugs
they shoulda had a picnic outside."
The remains of Brock Hall
will be cremated ln a simple
ceremony next week which, is
expected to kill the cockroaches.

against Bulldog cricketer, Dick

The facts were brought to lj^lit
