Does Noah Know?
STEALTHILY SEARCHING for his next victim is feline interloper who terromed UBC campus yesterday. Unidentified tiger

Belching fire and fumes, growling ferociously, and chasinf
every comely co-ed on campus, a tiger from the "Ark" took over
UBC at noon yesterday. f

stalked the campus, grunting what
sounded Hike "Oh! Ah!" but turned
cut later to be only a plea for Noah,
the tiger's keeper.
Reports flooding Ubyssey offices des-
cribebd the beast as about six-foot
ten, close to 250 pounds, age 22. Except
for those $reen-gbwing eyes, he was
a coed's dr?am.
An hvtrepid reporter, in true spirit
of the press, -button-holed 'the tiger
in a dingy corridor.
The ensuing interview brought out
some entertaining facts, as well as ihe
reporter's costly set of uppers, and a
patch on tbe seat of his trousers.
Cousin to Disney's famous "Reluet-
anlt Drangon," the tiger professed to
be very friendly—except around women; extremely bashful — except
ayound wamen and not at all ferocious

Only indenftification which the tiger
carried was two small signs pinned on
his shoulders and chest. Close in-

Presentation is sponsored by the

one of several animals appearing in
the animal chorus of the play. Tiger's
realistic head was designed by Cliff
Robinson, Extension Department artist
who is als1) doing sets for ''The Inspector Calls."

bright pink CCFer'p combined Tuesday to heave Liberal Moqk
Parliament government right out of office.
Riotous horse-play began when$-
PC's led by Marshall Bray appeared
in the house dressed in tails, striped
trousers, top hats, armed with long
stogies and copies of the, Financial
Times, and triumphantly bearing a
gallon jug of bright red wine.
Mr. Speaker, Rod Young, former
CCF MP for Vancouver Centre, stared
icily av the Tories and ordered the
Sergeant-at-Arms to remvoe the jug.
Bray immediately jumped up from
the opposition front bench and
launched vehement protest against this
"hideous violation of civil liberties."
"If honorable members cannot partake of innocent refreshment in this
house, then it becomes obvious that
government has no intention of carrying out its election promise to liberalize our liquor laws," he stormed.
Government, after being harassed
and heckled throughout the question
period, finally introduced a bill to replace the present DVA scheme with
a similar scheme for non-veterans.
Rising to lambaste the bill, CCF
leader, Joe Lotzkar, began "Comrade,
Speaker ..."
He was cut short by Mr. Speaker
who demanded an immediate apology
for  use  of "Comrade."
"Very well,' said Lotzkar, "I thought
for a moment you were one of our
boys made iood."
"Any further remarks and you will
be removed from the house" Young
Tory spokesman Ian Seymour blasted
the government for "daring to propose
that we waste the taxpayers' money in
sending thick-skulled young idiots
to college where they will only indulge in childish pranks."
"They will probably wind up in
Mock Parliament, and that will be
the end,' he concluded.
LPP leader, Jack Howard denounced
the bill as "dirty -class legislation."
"The bill provides that students
must have a 65 percent average. This
is idocy. Eveiryorte knows 65 percent
is impossible, The government is obviously discriminating in favor of the
genius class"  he  protested.
Education bill was followed by a

Rally in Aid of

Up in Littfe Mountain Camp
last evening, there was a girl.
3he is a very pretty girl. But
the sad part of our story is thit
this pretty, brunette girl was
That pretty, brunette, crying girl
was Mrs. Cy White. And Mrs. Whits
the pretty brunetlte, crying girl, wm
crying for a very special reason.
On the eve of the final Instalment
of he Engineer's Ball, "Behind ft*
Red Curtain," Mr. (using th* term
loosely, of course) White turned deserter.
But all was not lost.
Rallying to the cause, and returning favor Engineers so recently performed for the Ubyssey staff, members of the Publications Board Immediately joined the search for mining personnel.
It had been suggested that tht
Missing Parsons Bureau be oontaflttd
and put on the job. Ubyssey Editor-
in-Chief Jim Banham, said, however,
"Tell the Engineers not to worry. My
men and I will rescue the situation."*'
And with these remarks, Banham and
his staff proceeded  on a  city-wide
search  to recover ithe missing EUS
Late reports from reliable sources
indicate that White was seen on
Georgia Street, with a blond tinder
each arm, and trying to liook as inconspicuous as possible.
Following up this lead, pubsters
immediately took up pursuit of th*
missing White.
It was realized that White was an
extremely important cog in the "Red"
machine, and Engineers' Ball would
not be able to function without tht
presence of their president.
It appeared that someone had stripped the gears of the Engineers' machine.
But White was still on the loose.
Remaining confident of success In
their search, the newsmen proceeded
in order that White may not shirk
his duties.
And success was achieved.
As had been reported, White wu
carrying two blondes. But what was
even more shameful, he was carrying
a load.
Unavailed, Banham and his stalwarts dragged the (Ugh!) EUS chieftain to the Commodore Cabaret. (That
was where the Ball was being held.)
It was shameful, but Ubyssey staffers could take it. White was forced
to take up where his buddies had left
off. ♦
And the pretty, brunette, crying
girl was still crying.
Certain members of the Lawyers'
faculty assured Mrs. White that case
would be properly handled.
Pubsters modestly accepted thanks
of the Engineers.

The motion picture represents a great
stride forward in man's development of art
forms. It, unlike older mediums, enables us
to look ait life directly. It utilizes both visual

Unfortunately its potentialities are, as
yet, unexplored. We have only scratched the
surface of the medium—and our scratch has
gouged only the recreational field.

the film festival is to gather together as much
of this experimental material as is possible.
Equality Necessary
This week, the Civil Liberties Union, the
United Nations Club, and the Student CCF
'Club will hold a mass meeting to urge thc
passing of a Provincial Bill of Rights ensuring
ocmplete equality for all citizens regardless
of race, creed, or political opinion.
That such a bill is obviously necessary
is clearly demonstrated by the nasty mess
created over the Gordon Martin case. It is
further re-enforced by the various hideous
racial discrimination clauses found in prop-
It is hoped that if enough people can be
brought to a realization of vast untapped resources of the cinema, the public will demand
that commercial entertainers and producers
of educational films will be forced to stretch
their imaginations.
The festival has been remarkably well
handled. Nation Film Board's productions
"Fiddle Dee Dee" and "Begone Dull Care"
and the Jewish government's "Rhythm of a

When a certain philosophy student-editorial writer-columnist gets hold of a spot on
this page now and then, he discusses, ponders,
probes and jabs at and generally abuses what
are called Vital Questions of the Day.
Today we take up Vital Answers to Questions We Made Up Ourselves Because It's
Easier That Way.
Question: What can be done about the
food in the Caf? It's not fit for pigs.
Answer: We should get some that is.
Question: Shouldn't the Women's Undergraduate Society try to get more clubs for
Answer: Personally I do not believe in
clubs for women. I use the back of my hand.
Question: How do you get a date with a
beautiful woman?
Answer: Personally I am not disloyal enough to want a date with a beautiful woman.
I go out with UBC girls.
Question: Do you think Canada would
be safer for us if we shot all the Communists?
Answer: It would not be democratic to
shoot people because of their political beliefs.
We should hang them.
Question: Les Armour wrote a series of
articles entitled Can Education Save Us? Do
you believe it can?
Answer: Personally I have not had time
to give the subject much serious thought since
Mr. Armour's first column appeared. I have
been concentrating on What Can Save Us
from Les Armour?
Question: Don't you think the Publications Board should abandon its present policies and produce a real student newspaper?
Answer: That is hard for me to say, as I
do not know any real students.
Question: Do you think the modern
woman is selfish, conceited and vain?
Answer: I agree with you that women try
too hard to be like men.
Question: Do you think bridge-playing
should be allowed in the Caf?
Answer: Yes; It is probably healthier than
Question: What type of students should
be kept out of sororities?
Answer: Male students.
'Question: What can I do to avoid being
destroyed by the H-bomb?
Answer: Do not be around where it goes
Question: What is the cause of the present
r'.sing unemployment?
Answer: Too many people are out of
work, i
Question: Do you find it hard to explain
your column to your critics.
Answer: That is not as hard as trying
to explain it to my friends.
In This Comet       by jim banham
Students and impartial observers who
took in the Musical Society's production of
Tom Jones last week were liable to come
away so charmed by the music that they
missed the obvious deficiencies that characterized the performance.
Sir Edward German, who composed the
music, managed to imbue it with a lightness
and a charm that are hard to match. But it
was all too obvious that the people who did
the casting for the production were more
interested in having a competent voice singing, than they were in making the musical
comedy a well integrated whole.
The tendancy in this form of theatre
today is to choose dramatic artists first and
then go on to their qualifications as a singer.
But in Tom Jones most of the actors who
were forced to take speaking parts sounded
stilted and out of character. All too often the
actors made distinctions between their functions in the performance. They threw off
iheir characters when they sang and resumed
them when the song was over and thus
sacrificed a verisimilitude which could have
been present had they some speech training.
Milla Andrew as Sophia, the heroltw, was
;he outstanding performer with Hank Naylor
as Partridge, a quack country doctor. Miss
Andrew has a professional air to her singing
and she managed to make up for some of
her glaring acting deficiencies by her polished singing.* Hank Naylor is a natural comedian and his singing of the song "A Person of
Parts," was a standout of the show.
Miss Rita Loiselle deserves some comment for her performance as Honore, maid
lo Sophia. She has a pleasant manner and a
sweet voice but she had nervous habit of
playing with her skirt which sometimes made
the spectator uneasy, gfhe also pinches off
her top notes as though she were afraid to
open her throat and throw them out.
George Jones, as the Hero, Tom, has a
good voice but only during the singing of n
military song did he succeed in bellowing
loud enough to make himself liked. His acting
motions on the stage are too restrained and
where he should have flung his arms to attract
attention he seemed a little afraid of em-
barn; sing himself.
The Musical Society may have chosen a
middle of the road production to satisfy a
lot of people, I don't know, 'but this year's
pmcrrnance will certainly not put them on
l he map as a group to contend with. Aside
from the music, the rest of the performance
was rather colorless.
No one will deny that the Musical Society
is necessary on the campus as a training
ground for singers and musicians. But surely
they can experiment a bit and use material
somewhat more modern.
It would be a good idea for the Society
to investigate the possibility of staging something like "The Boys from Syracuse" or
"South Pacific" Not that I reoomftnend these
two for performance, but only as examples.
Something more modern is definitely in order

Odeon Theatres have brought "Quartet,"
a collection of four Somerset Maugham short
stories on film back to town. It's playing at
the Park Theatre in South Cambie and is,
well worth the price of admission and a tramp

performances of r.he operetta "Tom

crmpus February 14, 15, 16, 17 and 18.

both aiidiisnces and th? Vancouver

most enjoyable ewd of a high stand-
rrd. Tickets were forwarded to The
Ubyssey for thi? performance of
Thursday, February 16.
Surely one of Vhe major and more
colorful events of the academic year
('csorves mere consideration than this.
Among theatrical groups considerable
importance is attached to reviews.
It is also lamentable >that Tho Uby-

Ectttnr, Dear Sir:
I feel obligated to answer the le't -<r
cf Mr. Henry Wilde published '■•> vour
raper on Tuesday, February 14. Many
- voplz who did not hear my speech on
February 3, if thi:y read ihis letter,
may get an impression that I am an
anti-semitifi' and thsit my address was
{inti-semi'.ic. I wr*'te ithis letter to explain that I am not anti-semil'ic ard
when I speak about Jews, I speak with
the same ibel'i.iig as when I speak of
Germans, English, French. Russian
or those of my own race.
When I mentioned that two partisaa
leaders were Jews, I also mentioned
the third who was a Hungarian. I
did not think that all Jews or Hungarians were communists. I only emphasised the fact that tthe Partisan
leaders were not Yugoslavs.
Had I the intention to speak against
the Jews. I could say much more than
that. Was not Karl Marx a Jew,
Tratsky and ILitvinov in Russia, Got-
wald iin Cxechoslovakia, Ana Pauker
in Rumania and Rakoskj in Hungary
are Jews and are, or were, leading
Communists. Bella Kun, the leader
of the communist revolution in Hungary after World War 1 was also a Jew.
These are facts that no-onie studying
Marxian will argue about.
However, that has nothing to do
with the Jewish people and nobody
should say or think all Jews are communists. The Jews have been free ia
Yugoslavia and have the same rights
and privileges as anyone has had.
As far as the Serbian people are concerned, I cannot tell everyone that
we did not in any way participalte in
the extermination of the Jews. I would
be very glad to hear from Mr. Wilde
of any case where the Mihftilovich
Chetniks cr any Serbians hawe killed
a Jew except if he was a communist
partisan fighting against them.
Mr. Wilde said that I wm tiling

i't seems to me that he la more em*
otfonal than I. I mentioned two men
who happened to be Jewish end left
the Jewish peopta out of the discuss*
ion. Mr. Wilde attacks me without any
I can understand Mr. Wilde's bitterness. There is not very much pleasure
to live in this world whew it produces
such men as Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini
and Tito. The world which is able to
produce such men is able to look at
their crimes. Buit why make the bitterness more bitter?
Lot us forget this argument Mr.
Wilde. Let us be good friends and
work for love, tolerance, and peace
among all peoples. Believe me when
I say I have nothing against your
people or any people ait all. You have
misunderstood me.

WUS AND WAA EXECUTIVES are busily getting ready for
next year's activities.-The girls are expecting an eventful year
for the women on the campus. Standing, left to right, they are:
Shirley Malcolmson, Nonie Donaldson, Mimi Wright and Diana
Bancroft. Sitting are Sally Heard, Diana Cox, Eleanor Nyholm,
and Barbara Sehrodt.
New Executive Crew
At a general WUS-WAA meeting in the Auditorium on
Wednesday, February twenty-first, the minor positions for the
two organizations were elected.
Carol McKinnon handed 'the chair<?>-
over to Mimi Wright, new WAA president, after asking the girls far more
active support of the athletic program.
It was decided that Mrs. Evink, who
was Ithis years faculty representative
on WAA, would be asked to continue,
ln this posltki.il for the year 1950-51.
E'arbara "Bim" Sehrodt was ekctcd
vlce-presi'dent of WAA, and Ehancr
Nyholm was chosen as secretary for
■the eyear.
Following   these   elections,   Eileen
Moyto -took over >the  mesiting,  and
wished success to Nonie ©tmnaldson,
nsw WUS president. Nonie conducted
the meeting and asked for nominations for honorary president and vica-
president of 'the organization. Dean
Mawdsley and Dr. Halllmore were accorded the respective positions.
Sally Heard will be vice-president,
and after closely contested nominations
Diane Cox was elected secretary and
Shirley Malcolmson treasurer of WUS
next year. With such energetic fltaifls,
WUS and WAA may look forward to
a good season in 1950-51.

Fraternity and sorority do-^
ings are reaching a new high
these days as the various groups
are having their spring formal;;.
Beta Theta Pi, Phi Kappa Pi, and
Zeta Psi fraternities have had their
seasonal affairs and there are many
more of these to come. Kappa Sigma
holds theirs on Tuesday at the Roof.
Alpha Delta Phi will be 'farmalling

one of tiie ijyellett ««:ret8ries the
Council hayev«r had. Peppy and enthusiastic 6bout her new job, she says
she is losing forward to her duties
of next Vear.
Jo-Apine is a graduate of Lord Byng,
Some lct her main interests this year
have/been with NFCUS, of which
she Ijas been secretary. She explained
som£ of the ins and outs of that
organization, which is concerned with
the activities of students across Canada, and promotes student exchanges
between universities.
A;t the general WUS-WAA meeting
hety in the Auditorium Wednesday,
February 21, Nonie Donaldson, preai-
denli-elect of the Women's Undergraduate Society, was handed her
robes of office. She took over the
meeting as the flrtt of her new rei-
ponslbllKifcs for the year.
"I was very excited and thrilled
to get in and I hope I can maintain
the high standhrda set by the previous
WUS President*," said Nonie in one
breath as ahe waa asked how ahe
felt about the pl^ction. Judging by
the previous standards the herself
has obtained in many fields of .girls'
work, she will be ifery successful.
Right now she la actively engaged in
YW and Church work, and is on the
Phrateres executive out here.
Norile, a very attractive' short-haired
girl, hopes to do social wfcirk, specializing in younger girls' fields. Right
now she has managed Ua sandwich
three years work into two which ahe
admits has kept her pretty busy. It
doesn't seem to have aiffected her
liveliness, however, and ' WUS wlU
have a very capable girl to manage
next year's activities.        j
The 1950-31 President olj Women's
Athletics is Mimi Wright, i who *#
be in fourth year Phyalck Education next year. She vrfil £ able to
"     -U .	
offer the benefit of her first hand
knowledge of sports to the direction
of this organization. Her favorites in
athletics are tennis and swimming.
But Mimi is not only outstanding in
that field. Scholarship problems which
seem to nag many of the very active
girls in the campus are not in Mimi's
record, in fact ahe has won two
scholarships. As trumpet player in
the University Orchestra she is well-
known in musical circles at UBC.
Phrateres Formal

Once again, red returns as
the new spring color, ushered
in in a blaze of glorious shades.
Again, fashion-wise co-eds will take
advantage of the red family tree,
frcm deepest pink to the deepest
Whether it be rose^ flamingo( scarlet, fuschia, cherry, or just plain red,
there is a shade for each and every
one of us, blonde, brunette, redhead,
Materially speaking, red is represented in every fabric imaginable:
silk, cotton, linen, worsteds, for this
seascn when clothes are definitely
feminine — for the well-dressed look.
And figuratively speaking, picture
yourself in spring's most radiant shade,
in made-to-order or smartly tailored
suits. Take your choice of silhouettes,
long or short, loose or fitted Jackets,
full or pencil slim skirts. Once you
get your dress, suit or coat in red,
picture the white accessories in a hat,
blouse, shoes, handbag, or a scarf
that will give a finished look to your
spring outfit.
In a softer hue, spring's most popular color is expressive yet delicate in
the after-glow of evening — exultant,
stimulating in the daytime business
world. Dramatic in red as sharp and
clear as a winter's night, exotic in
the warmth of rose.
So start looking through the pattern
books, because it's definitely the
"lady in red" for the coming season.

ame Team That Beat Stanford
Going Tomorrow Against ^eps
Laithwaite Watching Boys Closely r
To Pick Team for California Trip
Rugger coach Albert Laithwaite will be pitting the same
f; team against Vancouver Reps tomorrow as he used in the Stanford series in an all out attempt to take the second McKechnie
 ^Cup game of the year.
With evidence that Vancouver Reps
are a strong team, Lnithwate's decision is not surprising. The fifteen
used in Iho Stanford scries made a
good showing, especially winger Jack
Smith who was moved to starting
position in place of Wotherspoon.
A-iy torn which Laithwaite decided
io   put   into  play   would   have  been
able to hold their own against Reps
but the showing that the present fifteen made against the Indians is the
reason why UBC has been given a
slight edge for tomorrow's meet.
I     Much of the load tommorow will
fall in three-liner Russ Latham who
: ccctributiEd 14 points in the second
! Indian game lasit Saturday.
If Latham's toe is lin good shape,
I he should account  for a good  per-
I cem.r.ge of ihe total score.
!    Scrum is almost a cinch to get the
ball ouit to scrum half John "Junior"
| Tennant after their success alt pushing
! around   the   Stanford   scrum   which
outweighed chem by nearly ten pounds
I per man.
,    Added weight and drive of Austin
Taylor Jr.  in  the scrum should  be
enough to give the 'Birdmen an edge
over, the Vancouver team.
Laithwa',ti2 now has tl.e added
problem of picking the team to go
to California with him for their first'
game March 7 against University of
Twenty-three players, manager,
coach and trainer will make the trip
by plane for ).he three-game stay in
the laind of eternal sunshine.
Laithwaite would like to take
about 28 players with bim if he could,
thinking back to the nuVnber of members who got hurt last year.
With the lower limit imposed on
him, the coach might base his choices
on the performances of the team fn
tomorrow's rugby fixture.
Anyway it is looked at, the game is
a natural, guaranteed to be good.
Tickets on sale at the door only.
