Elections. USC Affected
No. 53.
Med Site
By Premeds
Dr. George M. Weir, Minister of Education, suggested to
the legislature Tuesday that the medical school be established
at the present Normal School, a location about five blocks
from the old Fairview site of the University of B.C.
Necessary accomodation could be
made, Dr. Weir said, by moving Normal school students out to the UBC
campus, where they could get the
"best all-round training."
As an alternate solution, Dr. Weir
suggested the erection of "two or three
large huts", on the Normal School
grounds as "adequate lecture room
for both the Normal School and medical students" and as "effective improvisation until the new medical building is erected."
He added that the three-acre Fair-
view site has "space not only for a
medical building, but for a new hospital also."

Honorary Award
Deadline Set
Nominations by Literary and Scientific Executive club of members in
their graduating and pre-graduating
years must be submitted to LSE
Honorary Society by March 5, according   to  Jerry   Macdonald,   Presi-
ent of LSE.
Each major club may submit the
james of two members, and each
minor club one member on the basis
of the valuable work each has done
in LSE activities.

the awards committee will elect ten
or 12 new members from graduating
and pre-graduating years to the
awards committee.
In choosing their potential members
for the awards committee, major and
minor clubs must take their nominations from students represented by a
majority of votes in the club.
"Any student names turned into
AMS office later than four p.m. March
5 will not be considered by the LSE
awords committee," Macdonald stated.

candidates as members on LSE awards
committee are two faculty members,
two honorary members and Jerry
Macdonald, President of LSE.
USC Investigates
Disputed XXIV
Article XXIV of the AMS constitution again under fire at the Monday
meeting of the Undergraduate Societies Committee.
The body passed a motion that the
article be investigated with a view
to revision by contacting other universities, After revision the article
should be more strictly and justly enforced. USC stipulates that the ruling
be incorporated into the '47 Tillicum.
General opinion of the USC was that
tho MAD did not enforce the ruling
indiscriminately, but prosecuted only
those cases which were not inconvenient to MAD. Some members of the
body claimed that the ruling was not
given sufficient publicity, while others
felt that MAD should investigate more
fully the individual circumstances of
each case.
USC feels that the problem of this
ruling be cleared up now before the
question becomes greater as UBC sport
gains momentum.
Dealing with the subject of Saturday night basketball dances, Bill McKay said that many complaints were
being received due to shortness of
time available for dancing due to the
late ending of basketball games.
A motion was passed to the effect
that USC go on record as stating that
there has been a lack of coordination
between the times of Saturday night
dances and  games,
Contrary to the report of eight consulted American medical experts on
the subject, Dr. Weir pointed out tho
close proximity of the Vancouver
General Hospital as a desirable clinical training ground for medical students.
To suggestions of Dr. Weir, a spokesman for the Pre-medical Undergraduate Society replied that, "Perhaps we
should tear down the Cairn and carry
it back to Fairview too."
Dr. Weir states that 'Normal School
.students should be at the University
for the best all-round training'. From
this statement one would infer that
and all-round training is less necessary
for medical students,"  he said.
He added that "anyone with vision
can see that a good medical faculty
will raise the prestige of the whole
university", while "an improvised one
will drag UBC's name down with it".
Politicos Seek

Under New AMS Rulings
Final report of the Constitution Revision Committee under Ray Dewar was received at
the Student Council meeting Monday and, after a primary discussion, has been posted pending the final passage at next Monday's meeting.
President Ted Kirkpatrick urges all students to look over these proposals on the AMS
bulletin board, and any criticism will be appreciated.
"If passed by a unanimous vote of Council these recommendations will become law and
part of the AMS code.   They will remain on the bulletin board till Monday evening", he said.
The report represents the conclusions of a committee set up at the last AMS general meeting.
They formed their decisions after months of listening to "gripe sessions" and interviews. The
committee includes, besides Dewar as chairman, J. Bagnall, Bob Dodd, Gordon Martin, Stu
Porteous, Dave Tupper, and Bob Wilson.
^Clarify Eligibility For Offices
In Article I, definitions 1 to 3 recommended by the committee have been accepted by the USC and preliminary discussion
of Council indicates the passage through that body. The revised
forms eliminate any student from running twice for the same
office, or any degree student from running for an office.
A revised form of paragraph 4, which accepted those eliminated under the term of a 'Senior' was turned down by the
USC, probably followed by Council, arid the present form of
the definition is likely to be retained.
The next revision enters into Article III, and subparagraphs
(c) to (m) of paragraph 2, listing the offices of the AMS, which
have a considerably simplified wording due to the revised definitions.
The new clause concerning President eliminates any student from running twice for the office. Council voted to include
the limiting phrase "a senior in his graduating year". The recommendations have already been passed by the committee and the
USC without this phrase. Council has', with this action, eliminated third year engineers, or similar five year course students
from running for the position of president. These student;
classed as Seniors under Article I, definitions.
!!Premed students are wondering
why the government continues to j jcr
ignore the fact that a provincial medical centre can develop around the
school only if it is located on the
campus, where it can grow."

Purpose of the pep meet is to publicize the Olympic Ski Fund drive,
which will send a Canadian team to
the Olympics.
Gym Action
To Begin
A recommendation that immediate
action be taken toward the architectural design of the War Memorial
Gymnasium was ratified at a meeting of the Memorial Committee held
' Tuesday.
The recommendation, arising out of
an earlier meeting of the sub-committee on planning headed by Professor Frederick Lasserre of the
Architectural Department, will be
submitted to the Board of Trustees.
Previously a contest had been
planed with the winning design to be
accepted for the Gymnasium. It was
decided, however, that such a scheme
would be unnecessarily cumbersome,
and would delay construction by at
least six months.
It has been proposed that Professor Lasserre and his associates be
commissioned to plan the building.
To this end, Professor Lasserre "has
already submitted a tentative plan
which is designed to combine the
utilitarian aspects of a gymnasium
with the essential theme of the war
memorial. It met with strong approval from the committee.
A delegation of committee members will leave soon for Victoria to
explain present plans for the Memorial to Premier Hart, according to
a second resolution passed at the
Penn McLeod, director of the drive,
presented a financial report and told
the meeting that pledges of donaions
have   been   arriving  promply.
A Tea Dance sponsored by WUS
will be held In Brock Lounge tomorrow from 3:30 to 6 p.m. Proceeds of the dance will go to ISS.
Alums Campaign
In Premsds' Drive
As part of its plan to support the
current campaign for a medical school,
the Alumni Association has contacted
its branches throughout the province
in order that they may enlist the aid
of their respective MLA's in the
drive, Frank Turner, Alumni serce-
iary ^announced last week.
The Alumni Association he said is
supporting the plan put. forth by tho
commission last year, which asks [or
a complete medical school on the
campus. By contacting as many MLA's
a.s possible and securing their help in
the drive, the association hopes to
speed up the campaign.
To date four branches have announced success in soliciting aid from
their   government   members.
Four Nominees In

president, is running for the) presidency of the branch. He is the on'y
one nominated to this position to
far, stated Legion officials.
Don Lanskail, present executive
member and publicity director of
the branch, has been nominated for
the first vice-presidency.
Jack Hunter, chairman of the
housing committee, and Ralph Huene,
master-at-arms and branch photographer, are running as executive
Nominations close at 4 p.m. tomorrow, Legion spokesmen said.
ummer session iNews
Three American authorities and one authority on Spanish
America have been appointed special lecturers for the University of British Columbia Summer School in July and August,
according to an announcement from the President's office yesterday.
Dr. Alfred Coester, one of the
world's outstanding authorities on
Spanish American literature and Professor Emeritus of Stanford University
will give courses for both English and
Spanish students and several public
lectures if they can be arranged.
Dr. Coester, editor of "Hispania"
for twenty years, is well known as
the author of numerous books on
Latin America.
Dr. B. H, Bode, professor at Ohio
State University and one of America's
most noted educator philosophers is
another o fthe special lecturers.
He  is  a  well  known   and  popular
; lecturer and the author of many
widely-read books on education and
Dr. D, H. Remmers, Professor of
Education and Psychology at Perdue
University, Lafayette, Indiana and a
distinguished member of many educational and psychology associations
will also lecture at the UBC Summer
School. He is especially interested
in statistics, tests and measurements
and has published widely in this field
The appointment of Dr. F. P. Robinson, Professor of Psychology at Ohio
State University and an authority on
educational psychology and the psychology of reading was also announced
Secretary, MAA Eligibility
The position of secretary is not limited to a Junior as in
the old code, but is available to Seniors also. This also applies
to the president of the Literary and Scientific Executive, president of the Women's Athletic Association and Co-ordinator of
Activities (eligibility of a Senior for CA was omitted in the
committee's report but this was amended by USC and will
probably receive the ratification of Council).
Council, in its first consideration of the report narrowed
the eligibility of the position of president of Men's Athletic
Association from a Junior and a Senior to a Senior only, This
move, on a clause already passed by USC and the committee,
was made with the feeling that a man with only two years on
the campus may be strong in athletics but lack the experience
needed in the administration of MAA. The president of the
Women's Undergraduate Society has been limited to a Senior.
In election procedure, Article III, paragraph 5, the most
important change concerns the election of the president of the
LSE by the student body and not only by members of the affiliated clubs of the LSE as stated in the present code. Subparagraph (m) referring to the elections of this member has
been completely deleted and (c) has been revised to include
the new rules of election.
The president of LSE will now be nominated by LSE
members only, and elected by the student body. This step
was taken considering that while the president of LSE was
primarily on Council to represent the LSE, he or she also had
the power to vote on all matters of student concern.
More Power Given USC
The constitution of USC is included in the revised code as
Article IV. It was felt that with the increased duties of USC
in its roll as a secondary governing body, its constitution should
be included to give it more authority and to make students
realize what it is and what ii. does.
As part of the Code of the AMS, the USC constitution will
be subject to the code's amendment clause. The USC constitution has also been subject to scrutiny of the Revision Committee members and several important changes have been recommended. These have already passed the USC and it remains for Council to put them on a permanent basis next Monday.
The membership clause in the revised constitution has
been narrowed considerably from its former broad phrasing.
The membership level is maintained as close to 60 as possible,
with a minimum of three representatives from each affiliated
society and the remaining members distributed according to the
size of the society represented.
The societies warranting representations are now listed and
mclude Teacher Training, Physical Education and Law, which
are not accepted under the present rubs. Also included as ex-
officto members are a Publications representative and all C«
cil members.
Election Procedure Simplified
Fl'.ctinn procedure is considerably
s.mpliCed in tho proposals. The election dat, e, re! a.s the first Wednesday in Manh. During Council's con-

The Wassail Bowl
An Alma Mater Society Constitution Revision Committee has once again reached the
happy stage where its work and worry are
on the point of being formed into recorded
achievement by the action of the Student
Council. Elsewhere in this issue many of the
details will be found/ This space is for praise,
3bservation, and recommendations.
To the casual observer it might seem that
the AMS gets itself involved all too often in
fretting over revisions to the by-laws and code.
Unfortunately, the truth is that the rules and
regulations were not drawn up properly in the
first place, that half-hearted attempts in the
past have only led to more confusion, and that
in recent years the Society has been suffering
from an almost uncomfortable expansion in
membership and activity.
It is, therefore, fortunate that within the
past several years much thought and time
have been expended upon constitutional revision. When the problem was tackled on a
mass scale in 1945 the subsequent recommendations provided for changes in the governmental
setup that have proved wise in this post-war
period. This year's deliberations have obviously been directed to clearing up many of the
ambiguities of status and organization which
have been left to the present Society as an
unwanted legacy.
On the whole,* the committee's proposals
appear to be sound and for their work the
revision workers deserve the thanks both of
the average student and of Council officials.
The committee's work might seem on the
surface to be dull and trivial, but in the sense
that it has provided a better framework for
student activity it is indeed important.
One notable feature of this year's work is
the consideration given to the proposals by
the Undergraduate Societies Committee, itself
a result of the 1945 revision recommendations.
The fact that Student Council is able to pass
or reject the suggestions in the knowledge
that they have already been subject to careful perusal by another representative group
is a good omen for future improvement.
Much revision and clearing away of dead-
wood in the AMS constitution, however, is
still required, and one of the first tasks of
the new Student Council should be to provide
or the continuation of the work so badly begun
this year.
On the cunpus this month, the
first steps have be:n taken to establish a branch of the Canadian Civil
Liberties Union, The organization
U non-political and non-sectirian;
it.s aim is to protect from attack or
curtailment those civil liberties that
are already esablish.d by law, custom, or precedent. Membership is
.'■•n to student nd facility alike.
Liaison will b_> maintained with Vancouver Branch of this association.
That such a move, taken voluntarily by students only a short time ago,
is close to fulfillment, i.s a tribute to
this university. The Campus Civil
Liberties Club is worthy of full
support of  the student body.
Civil rights are not all guaranteed
by law; nor docs the mere existence
of a defensive law necessarily protect thesj rights. Only enlightened
public consciousness of their necessity under the democratic system,
and a continual fight for them, can
fulfill this office. The Civil Liberties
Union, through its branches from
coast to coast, attempts to clarify
these   rights,   to   make   them   recog
nized by law. and to fight any denial
or  abridgment  of  them,
Civil rights are in danger when
people, from personal prejudice, or
indifference, ignore the denial or curtailment of these rights. The degree
of objectivity with which we usually
view any violation of them vari'-s
directly with the distance of the
violation from us. The CLU, compos: d as it is of a great variety of
sincere, intelligent people, can do
much to keep these problems con-
tinudly in our notice, and to force
u:< to take a fair and objective stand
on them.
No student who has faith in tho
democratic ideal can sit by idly
while somewhere in this country,
each y-ar, citizenship, and all tho
rights of citiz.nship, is denied arbitrarily on the slim grounds of "political expediency". Tho campus Civil
Liberties Club will do valuable work
if it can add the voices of UBC students to others in demanding—and
protecting—full civil rights for Canadians everywhere.

Legion Letter
Canadian Democratic Spirit In Action
News Hem, Feb. .14: ."Amy,
Navy and Air Force Veterans in
Canada, meeting in annual convention in Hotel Georgia, urged the
Federal Government extend for
a ten-year period the restrictions
on movements of Japanese in B.C.
Seventy- five delegates, representing 10,000 veterans, expressed belief 'the return of this centrally-
controlled dual citizenship foreign
bloc would operate as an insidious
menace te all citizens in this
area ....'"
A week later- the Army, Navy
ar,.d Air Force Veterans in Canada
were in the papers again. They
were sponsors of a gala New Canadian Citizenship Induction Dinner,
a*1 which seven representative
members of the Chinese Canadian
Veterans Unit of the organization
were granted citizenship in an
impressive after-dinner ceremony
conducted by Chief Justice Wendell B. Farris. The ceromony
was followed by a dance.
What I liked most about the
affair was the splendid, democratic
altruistic atmosphere. There was
no racialism here.by gosh. The
spirit of equality and citizenship
was equally evident at the tables
where all the Canadian Canadians
sat together and at the tables
where all the Chinese Canadians
I don't know where those aeven-
ty-five delegates who represented
the   10,000   veterans  in   the  Hotel
Georgia   convention   were   sitting.
One  of the  speakers struck   the
real theme of the evening, when
he said that our boys had been
"over there", by God, fighting to
preserve freedom for all. His
remarks drew considerable applause. 1 don't know whether the
seventy-five delegates were clapping or not.
Aid. J. D. Cornett, representing
tha city, gave a good little talk.
He said the Army, Navy and Air
Force veterans in Canada, by their
many good works, had "Shown
the world that Canada can take
all breeds of men and weld them
into one Canadian breed." Nobody
said anything about New Denver
or Tashme or the other camps in
the interior.
Major General Victor C. Odium,
Canada's ex-ambassador to China
spoke about Canada's "modern,
friendly,  efficient  democracy."
"Yes sir, democracy!" interjected
a bibulous citizen at a table near
mine, "democracy's what we fought
for over there."
Hon. Li Chao, the Chinese consul-general to Canada, made the
best speech. He said it was not
the claim of citizenship that pr-
marily concerned the Chinese element in Canada, rather it was
"the matter of the prosperity and
happiness of those concerned."
I don't think the Chinese-Canadian veterans and their girl friends
were the most prosperous citizens
in the hall, but they were far and
away the happiest. They were of
course well mannered and well
dressed,   the   girls   extremely   at
tractive in exotic silken gowns.
They all clapped politely after the
speeches, from the tables where
they sat in little groups.
Chief Justice Farris had a few
pro.'ound things to say. "Canada's
part in world peace is one of
which we can all be proud," he declared. "Canada is only seeking in
its humble way to bring the
people of all nations of the world
For some reason I thought again
of those 75 delegates, who represented 10,000 veterans, who had
been ever there, by God, fighting
for  democracy  and  equality,
And when the induction ceremony was over, before the dance
began, you should have seen the
citizenship. Real, down to earth
citizenship it was. The Canadian
Canadians went up and shook the
hands of the Chinese Canadians,
and slapped the new citizens on
the back, and there was all sorts
of smiling and good wishing. The
peoples of all the world were
coming together, all right, just as
the chief justice had predicted.
All but for those insidious, dual-
citizenship foreigners that the fearless 75 delegates had protected us
Atfer the ceremony the Chinese   Canadian   girls   danced   with
the Chinese Canadian beys and the
Canadian Canadian women danced
with the Canadian Canadians who
belonged to thj Army, Navy and
Aii' Force Veterans in Canada.

Letters To The Editor
The hidden meaning in the title ofathe column "On the
Wagon", by Mr. Stainsby has formerly escaped me. It is now
only too clear what this meaning is. The reference is of course
to the proverbial political bandwagon. I specifically refer to
the ride he took on it in last Tuesday's Ubyssey. I find it ironical
that Mr. Robeson, who received a short derogatory notice in that
column, spoke of that particular bandwagon rather fully in his
recent address.
!\T; \-  I nek  you  i\It". Stainsby,  where
Dojr Mr. Editor:
During the Science Hall an el. ctric
train disappeared from our display.
Now it so happens that this tram was
borrowed from a little lame boy
turned Roland. To my knowledge
this lad had but two toys; an electric
train and an old rag doll named
Edith. Up until now Roland has been
been quite satisfied with these two
toys, but, now that the better one has
boon lost, little Roalnd has become
very despondent. Since Roland is
very unhappy, since the new owner
is probacy now sober, and since the
damn thing ia broken anyhow, will
the souvenir hunter who now has it
please turn it in at the AMS?
Dear Sir:
Though I am not a Soro'ity member, nor, thanks to the physiological
requirements, am I likely to be one
during tin: iv-iurarnatiou, these continual attacks by congenital malcontents is no longer amusing'.
While indulging' in my favorite
vicc.—joining clubs -during this past
year I have mot nearly five hundred
co-eds, and of these, three were
Sorority girls. Tiie.se three were line
in every sense of the word-not only
did I hey speak to me as though I
were an equal, but one even had a
cup of  coffee  in  the  "caf"  with  me.
If we approve of girls who like to
paint pictures and lead snake parades joining the Mamooks—then we
must equally approve of an organisation for girls who like to discuss
the finer aspects of ''society" and
"make contacts" that will be invaluable in the primary function of the
females—that of finding a husband.
Dear Sir:
We men of the soil protest the latest outburst of ridicule directed
against our noble faculty. For some
lime the Agriculture students have
.endured the snobbish slurs appearing in tho columns of your bourgeois
newspaper, lint uh n Hi" illustrious
Jabez sloops to bait us our hearts
are filled with bitterness. Homer
Quineey is our friend—perhaps a bit
scruffy, but considering where he
came from .... He never has chas
ed sorority dolls', and when lie does
pursue women, he makes advances
in the genteel fashion traditional of
a   gentlem n   agriculturist.
While this university frowns on
racial prejudice, suciing Arlsmen
heap scorn and abuse on an important campus group, the Loyal Fraternity of Tillers of the Soil. But
our time is coming! We shall continue to endure your scorn, and when
the New Order comes we, the humble, shall rise by the martyrdom you
have thrust .upon us. We, the producers of vitamins, shall take our
deserved position as the leaders of

H.   L.   J.   RHODES,
Dear Sir:
Don Stainsby may not look much
like a Cupid to you, but wait! There
is a  resemblance!  Both  are blind.
Wasn't Fritz Thyssen a good capitalist? Mr. Stainsby's kind of thinking
(?> may start as a voluntary "All
Hail" to capitalism, but is liable to
lead to a lot of compulsory "All Heils''
you found this "pretty talk" you
glibly refer to. Perhaps it pertains
to the state of tho squatters in the
Deep South or the mine workers
in South Africa or the Jews on
Cyprus or the reservation Indians in
Canada. Or perhaps it describes the
beauty of suffering, starvation, and
aggression, Very pretty! I find
your smooth platitudes slightly
drowned by the sincerity of Paul
Robeson. Surely, a tribute to him
should go beyond his greatness as
an artist and brilliant elocutionist.
He is a great man. His self-sacrifice and great compassion show a
strength of character that is seemingly beyond your comprehension.
Further, Mr. Stainsby leaves no
choice but to point out a few of
his gross anomalies and untruths.
His text reads like a Hearst editorial.
It is a muffled echo of those arguments used the world over against
socialist movements, arguments
which lose credence day by day in
the light of the truth. This reader's
intelligence is insulted when it i.s
stated that a system 'based on revolution has something basically wrong
with it. Practically every large state
today has a revolutionary background, revolutions led by men like
Wat Tyler, Cromwell, George Wash
ington, William Lyon Mackenzie,
Sua Yat S:n, Robespierre and Lenin.
It seems, Mr. Stainsby, that though
revolution is not "the easy way out",
it has often been the only way out.
I would also like to know what
these luxuries are that "even the
laborers in our country take for
granted". Are they street car commuters, long working hours, poor
working conditions, unemployment
or depression? We bask in this
You also find it in your doubtful
power to reject the writings of Hewlett Johnson, Dean of Canterbury,
Sidney and Beatrice Webb, Henry
Wallace, Edgar Snow and Quentin
Reynolds in your remarks on the
Sovtet educational system. It is
today admitted, even, in the capitalist press, that public education in
the Soviet surpasses ours in providing education according to intelligence and capability rather than
ability  to  pay fees,
It seems that I have outdone Mr.
Stainsby in maliciousness, but I
find it unavoidable in the light (or
should I say dim glow) of his trite
journalism, I hope that my effort
has discharged some of the rancorous propaganda that is one of the
chief detriments to world cooperation today.
F  you  would  like  to know  more  about  this
scientific    religion    which    heals    human    ills
and solves human problems, come to

The amendment, now being enforced, splits the USC into two separate sections, tho disciplinary and
the judiciary  committees.
To bring a student before the
courts a charge must b? laid verbally by a member of the discipline
committee, or by a signed letter
from a member of the committee, a
member of the Student Council, a
society or club of the AMS, or a
member of the faculty.
The student may then be tried in
a Speedy Court by a single judge
appointed by USC, or, if requested
by the court, defendant or prosecutor, a Full Court consisting of five
members of the judicial committee
of USC appointed by the chairman
of the judicial committee, The final
court of appeal in any case will be
Student Council.
The Full Court has not the pow«r
to levy any fines exceeding five dollars, but may refer any case to Student Council if the crime warrants
it. Procedure for these courts has
also been simplified. The accused may
elect a defense council from members
of the Society, and the prosecutor,
also a mernhpr of the Society, is appointed by the discipline committee,
Outstanding is the fact that the
president of MAA is no longer the
chairman of the eligibility committee outlined in Article XXII, paragraph 1, subparagraph (e). This position is reserved for th: chairman of
USC under the revised setup.
Recomemndations made in regard
to athletics have been temporarily
shelved by Council pending the report of a committee set up from
members of the MAA and WAA, and
the president of the AMS. It seems
certain that two athletic representatives will be retained on the Council instead of the one recommended
by the revisions committee. However,
the joint directorate, first proposed
by Don McRae to administer athletic funds, and recommended by the
committee will receive the attention
of Council when the report of th:
athletic committee is received.
The final report of the committee
has already besn passed by USC, except where already noted. Stu
Porteous refrained from signing the
report and charge the committee
with attempting to railroad the report through before a USC meeting
in January.
He severely criticized the report on
several issues, notably the clauses
dealing with eligibility for elections,
election of the president of the AMS,
and the power of the president of
student court to declare the court
closed to publicity. He also attacked
the definition of a Junior.

Perrault Happy Over Talk
On College Radio Scheme
Complete satisfaction with the first
meeting of the Western University
Radio Federation was expressed by
Ray Perrault on his return from
Saskatoon, site of the meeting, Tuesday.
UBC will be in charge of organizing many of the important features of
the Radio Federation, according to
Perrault. A campus Roundup Feature,
patterned after the CBC Roundup, will
shortly be instituted. The program
will likely consist of brief reports
on newsworthy events in each university. It is hoped to carry this
feature over a western radio network.
The Federation appointed Bill Jefferson of the University of Saskatchewan to be its first chairman.
Chairmanship will rotate through the
other universities in the years to
The object of the Federation, as
outlined by Perrault is to improve
relations between students and public
in the university cities.
Another item under the organization
of UBC is an exchange sheet, which
this university will edit and distribute.
It will contain news of Interest pertaining to radio at the four western
A third item which Perrault thought
should be included in the Federation's
plans is a transcription exchange. Each
university will select a program of
the month, possibly a music or drama
program. This will be recorded and
sent for rebroadcast over the other
organs of the network. Purpose of
this, explained Perrault, is to educate
.students on the work of other uni»
versities, and to provide entertain*
ment for people in the university cities,
Saskatchewan has been given the
task of organizing the Federation in
its initial stages. Other plans tentatively arranged were a special sports
events broadcast, to be handled by the
University of Alberta, and an inter-
varsity radio drama festival over a
Canadian network.

_J halk talk
The long arm of the Physical Education Department caught
your scribe in its icy clutch last Monday. While he was loping
happily about the gym floor, nursing a basketball with great
care and heaving it through the hemp at regular five minute
intervals, yon Cassius, in the person of one H. Douglas Whittle,
had a lean and hungry look. In no time at all the storm had
broken, and Whittle beckoned with sharp-talonned fingers
twitching, and muttered between clenched teeth that were
arched in a devilish grin, three ghastly words: Physical training
At the very mention of PT credits, every freshman and
soph feels a cold chill pierce him to the marrow, and this
Ubyssey minion is no exception. Slowly he cracked a sheepish
smile, but the eyes of the athletic mogul were hard and unrelenting.
An Appointment at the Crystal
Fortunately for his wretched skin, your reporter was saved
the gruesome fate of being caught speechless, when peering
through bloated orbs, he recalled that every Monday he was
billed for his weekly appearance at the Crystal Pool. Thus the
duel was postponed, and with the meaningful phrase, "Til we
meet again," the tyrant released the victim.
Some hours later, the two central figures in the drama
recounted above greeted each other again down at the Beach
Street reservoir. Under the lash of the Hart House maestro
(Whittle that is) your columnist, replete with sarong and his
numberplate bearing the inscription, Locker 77, turned athletic
and swam his customary two lengths.
The Rest Were in Condition
After the marathon your reporter lay panting and dishevelled at the edge of the pond. 'Twas in this tragic condition
that he suddenly espied through his misty gleamers, myriads
of smooth builds who seemed to cut the water with effortless strokes. Whittle approached our beaten hulk to gloat, but
said in passing that the university swimming team, then in the
water, were just completing their first twenty laps of the afternoon.
"Why the eagerness?" we queried.    .
We learned from the coach that the Varsity aquatic aggregation makes its debut before the hometown fans in Pacific
Northwest Conference competition this Saturday. According
to our good friend Doug (the appeasement policy), the College
of Puget Sound natators will be paying UBC a return visit when
they reach this metropolis at the week's end. Two weeks ago the
Tacoma splash artists played the benign hosts to our own Blue
and Gold mermen, and managed to eke out a close 34-30 victory
on points.

But the wily mentor Whittle has high hopes for his aquatic

casual conversation that, our aerial artists were considerably
impeded by the lack of clearance above the board down at the
Stadium High School Pool at Tacoma where the first meet was
staged. In fact Jimmy Hawthorne, is one of his graceful soaring efforts, knocked his head on the ceiling of the establishment

Joker Rollermen
Win Skating Cup
Thousands of students crowded the
Armory yesterday and it seems that
they just wanted to see what makes
the wheels go round. For there it
was that the Jokers held their second annual Roller Derby yesterday
and for the second straight year, the
Jokers managed to take the honors.
Twenty-three of the entries were
still going strong when time was finally called at 1:00 p.m. During the
four hours of skating, the Jokers
managed' to make the rounds 649 times
a mere nine rounds better than the
second place Phi Gamma Delta team.
The meet was arranged by Bill
Dunbar and Ivor Wynne with the
assistance of the Jokers Club. The
whole thing was to emphasize to
everyone the fun thul would he in
.-lore for th-in at the Kiddie Bawl.
The cup presented to the winners
was donated by the Burrard Lions
Club. And the Jokers really earned
it. Leading all morning, Uuy were
never in danger until the last hour
when the Psi U's who finished third
and  the Fiji's started  coming  up.
Beta Theta Pi finished fourth with
G3.1, only two laps behind the Psi
U's, The Commerccmen, who were
in second place around 11:00 o'clock,
finished fifth with 622.
In the girls' section, members of
the Varsity Outdoor Club totalled
561 laps to down the second place
3rd year Ark team by 48 rounds.
Second Division rugger all-stars will
practice against St. George's at 4 p.m.

last Siturday the 'Birds are now in
-a good position to clinch the cup.
Vancouver and Victoria assisted the
'Birds by playing to a 3-3 draw in
the only other game of the series,
In event of a Varsity victory this
weekend the two other scheduled
tilts will be played as exhibition
Only way that the campus rugger-
men can lose the series is by losing
all of the remaining games, and after
the showing of last week when they
took the Islanders for a 16-3 count
there is little hope for either Art
Dodd's downtown lads, or Campbell Forbes red shirted Victorians.
The weekend game will be the last
Thunderbird tilt in the city for several weeks as a journey to Victoria
and a tour of central California will
keep Roy Haines boys busy till the
middle of March.
It is expected that the Rounscfvll
cup play will be next game in the

TAKE IT EASY RICHARD—The two grimacing groaners

Wrestlers Enter Bis Card
In Intramural Tournament
Although only mentioned in minor
connection with the intramural boxing and wrestling tournament of Friday, March 7, fight promoters Jack
Pomfret and Ivor Wynne will have
to start eliminating and cutting down
some IS wrestlers into m iterial for
four  bouts  ir.  the  tuurn.im- tit.

any   spoil,   will   haw   205   pounds   to

in   the  lie ivy\V- ight  class.
Wally Walling, who has ten years
of grunt and groaning experience
behind him, besides acting as coach
of the UBC Wrestling Club will also
enter  into  the  tournament.
Among the other Varsity boys who
\vill be up for elimination this week
in the preliminary wrestling bouts
are Jack Nelson, Howie Thurgood.
Jim Girvin, Dick Mitch: 11, Egar
Paulik, Tom McCusker, Bert Hor-
wood, F'.oyd Eno and Pete Greer.
Meanwhile, boxing fans are still
talking about the featured bout of
Monday's eliminations. It was Danny Oliver and Art Beaumont that
kept the spectators on the tips of their
toes in he seatless caves underneath
the Stadium. These boys batled it
out for three furious rounds, but the
judges just couldn't coma to a decision. The moguls ordered an extra frame and Beaumont finally tipped the decision scales in his favor.
Spectators    judged    the    fight    in
which Seymour Alderman defeated
Charlie Kellcy in the open welter—
the classiest of the day.
Ron W .iters, an up-and-coming
pugilist who the fight promoters look
upon v.ry favorably, obtained his
prominence by taking a fight from
Rob Owen.

a record of eight wins and four losses
is known as the UBC Thunderbirds.
Two weeks ago, things looked pretty
black for the 'Birdmen when they lost
their second tilt to the Willamette
squad, but today, there is a very fair
chance that the local artists will retain their title as Pacific Northwest
Conference champs.
However, the toughest problem of
the year is now facing the Whiz kids.
This weekend they are scheduled to
meet the Loggers of Puget Sound in
what will make or break one of the
two teams as the Loggers axe also
one of the big four.
But it won't do the 'Birds a great
deal of good unless they can manage
to sweep both ends of the double bill.
Each of the four top teams have two
games left to play this year. The other
team currently on top of the pack is
the Linfield squad who in their present
red-hot condition are expected to take
both games from the Willamette boys.
Whether the Willamette team can
continue their winning streak long
enough to take one of these tilts is
a moot point. Idaho's two games will
be against the celler-dwelling Pacific
Badgers and will be played on their
home  court with their  own referees.
Any UBC player will be able to tell
you just what that means.
In short, anything can happen! A few
short prayers might be in order in the
very near future. Need we add that
there should be plenty of superb hoopla action on tap this weekend.
Regulations regarding playing and
court attire, as well as a temporary
constitution were drawn up at an
organization   meeting   ef   the   Varsity
tennis club Tuesday.
It was agreed that such matters as
fees, court rrscrvations and tournaments fhould be deferred until a
later  meeting.
President Jack Volkovitch told
iiv inhere, that throe indoor t:nnis
courts are expected to be i eady next
fall. Club executive, con'-'.isting of
Volkovich and secretary Pat Cowan
will call a general meeting in tha
near  future.
