Mock MPs
To Tackle
Steel Fix
A mock parliament, to be
held by the CCF Club in Brock
Hall, Wednesday evening, January 28, will discuss the Canadian steel combine as it affects
Canada and the world.
In a preliminary statement, the
OCT club's Minister of Trade and
Commence pointed out that the
operation of this industry as n
private, profit-making clique constitutes a threat to peace. It extracts the maximum profits sometimes a*t the expense of internal*
lonal understanding, he claimed.
Me also expressed the opinion
that an intelligent, planned policy
In relation to resources ls essentia!
to Canadian prosperity. Our mineral resources are not inexhaustible.
The minister cited the case of
the delayed OranviUe Street bridge
to show how the production poll
cies ot the steel industry can hold
up the construction of many worthwhile projects.
Swami Talks
To Full House
On Thursday
There was standing room only
In Physics 200, Thursday, when
Swami Shlvanande gave the third
In his series of lectures on "Life
and Death."
The Swami said that the Indian
philosophy is happiness, peace and
freedom for the oppressed.
"Nationalism," he said, "has
grown ln India. Through its aeao-
oiation with western countries, India has become the only Asla'tlu
country that understands western
problems." *■'.*•
Indians were made slaves because they opened their hearts so
wide to foreigners that their
guests became their masters. But
the Swami's country is grateful to
the British for the electric-power
and inventions which they encouraged.
The Swami also lectured on a
life of non-attachment. Renounce
everything and conquer yourseir,
he urged.
"Happiness and love are all within us. Outside love ls just a reflection of our Inner love." Swam!
Stolvananda said that the body
and the mind are two completely
separate entitles, with the mind
the superior.
"Fa-rts of the body die hut the
mind does not."

TORONTO — (CUP) — Twoj
Eastern Universities became the1
sixth and seventh to approve the;
proposed exchange of students
visits between Canada and the!
Soviet   Union.
Student meetings at the university of Toronto and Bishop's Uni-1
versity at Lennoxville, Que., favored the exchange hy thumping
staffs devoted to the social sciences and the humanities faced with
almost   Insoluble   problems.
The compromises necessitated
in order to provide "mass education" luvve highlighted the problems inherent In existing teaching methods and examination systems.
* An instructor faced with a class
of from 75 to 200 students is sorely tempted to stereotype his course
and few instructors have been able
to resist the temptation.
Thus the s>ttident is handed a
stock text, neat interpretations
and reams of "facts'' which he is
expected to memorize and parrot
back on an examination which
serves only to provide administrators with some sort of record of
his having heen enrolled.
.... Examiners have, in most cases, resorted to a markng system
which Involves listing the allegedly "important" point and ticking
off the points on examination es
says. The student who dares to
do some original and unorthodox
thinking is thus at a frigtening
Unhappily, it does not take most
students long to figure this out
I'.'iul the result is an ever-decreasing
number of students who do any
thinking at  all.
m Worse still, a, majority of Instructors seem to see little wrong
with the system. How often have
students been told: "Yes, that was
an intelligent answer, but lt was
not the anwer I expected."
If any improvement in the situation is to he expected, some

methods and examination systems

depth of penetration and their originality  of  thought.
In many courses little can be
done about the "mass education"
problem. Hut a large proportion of
senior coiirses attract only 15 or
20  students.
Is there any reason why these
could   i'o)   lie  converted   into semi*
ing  **:id  the  functions  of the  Instructor would  be limited  to  the
stimulation   and   guidance   of  discussion?
Further, If the trend toward technical education were halted
through the "methods suggested in
the last article there would seem
to be no reason why univerltles
could not afford more instructors
In the social sciences and the humanities with a consequent diminishing of the overall problem.
By Thieyes
Mamooks have been losing so
much equipment in the last
few months they- may have >.o
close shop. At present, they
lave resorted to closing # their
doors and Jetting only paid-up
members into their studio.
It Is suspected that some members have been borrowng equipment and have forgotten to return
lt. "If they knew that a* paint brush
costs $2.50, borrowers would think
twice before taking things from
the studio," said Mamooks' treasurer.
The organization has lost ten
piMnt brushes, one stapler nnd one
pair of scissors since the beglnnng
of the year. The brushes are painted bright red and are initialed with
v. mall M.
If the brushes are not returned,
it is feared that planned show-
card classes will have to, be cancelled. The classes were prlmarllly
Intended for students who will be
paintng the Open House posters.
Another difficulty that Mamooks
are facing is that much of the work
that should be done may never be
done (an old story around UBC).
Although 78 students signed up for
membership at the begnnlng of
tkfi year, only 25 paid up their dues
of 50c. Of these 25, only around 15
are active members.

This microscope, which would
make a grain of Sugar appear as

President Norman MacKensle,
accepting the microscope'from the
Polio Fund committee, said "It is
assistance of this sort that makes
research possible on a disease that
was destroying human life before

wrong to allow private concerns
to make their own laws, which
is what price fixing amounts to."
He maintained that If there Is

Mr. Maclnnis criticized u price

Student Fares
AF.EW years ago thc B.C. Electric cancelled student privileges for Varsity students on the city transit system;
a privilege, existing for almost 30 years, that was most arbitrarily discontinued.
The situation suggests that university students exist in
modem society as the Pope's "nephews" did in Renaissance
society, just beyond the pale of social acceptance, and yet
subject to social convention and demands.
Apparently the B.C. Electric considers university education a luxury, and subject to taxation as such. But that
company, being presently engaged in an extensive program
of technical expansion should be the last body to underestimate
the value of specialized training.
With all due respect and reverence for this new creed,
the veneration of Profit and Loss, we humbly request student
rates or transfer rights on city transit vehicles.
Bowling By Wire
0?NE of the best-known and most popular sports, as everyone knows* is long distance chess. Players in widely separated localities^inform each other of the latest move by mail,
wire or phone.
But the Women's Athletic Directorate has gone one.
UBC girl athletes Ibelong to an inter-collegiate telegraphic
bowling league.
Results of games here are wired to a central point in
Eastern Canada from where they are relayed to the member universities across the country.
Results of the games are no doubt so electrifying they
must bo rushed across the nation by telegraph.
The UBC'girls must suffer agonies of uncertainty until
they find out how they rank with Canada's best college bowling talent. Lucky is the messenger boy for he must be the recipient of numerous female athletic kisses for burning up the
streets with his bicycle to deliver that vital piece of yellow
WAD take note: A letter travels from Vancouver to Toronto in 48 hours. Total cost—four cents.
UBC Drivers
JilAD an article stating B.C. car drivers are not law abiding. This is not true for UBC drivers. One law states
NO HITCHIKERS—and over past six years I've noticed this
being more closely followed at all costs.
Good drivers have developed a reflex which turns the
head left when they see a thumb. This avoids the temptation
to be kind while leaving the right eye for the road and letting
them view the parsing scenery with the left. Lesser drivers
use the 'thumb twitch. The thumb twitches right or left and
&ays, "I'd like lo stop but I'm turning off." They can then
travel anywhere from a block to ten miles before doing so.
Others look right at you. One impales you with a steely
glance which says, "Howe dare you tempt me to break the
law and do all that gear changing again?" Another Direct
Looker says, "Nyah, Nyah — I've got a car but you haven't"!
I'm sure they're in the minority.
Although some cars break the law and I thank them profusely for the lift I' only being tolerant as I don't condone
their actions—they lower the tone of the whole driving clique.
That the police open the door on a wet sloppy night only indicates they are human and sometimes err. I do not think it
indicates the law is incompatible with human decency.
In closing I would like to admonish all would-be hitchik-
ers. When you feel like cursing that car that just splashed
by—remember—the occupant is being as pure as the driven
snow in which he leaves you standing; he is one of the growing majority of washed souls and you deserve to stand in the
cold night rain for tempting him to break the LAW. Amen.
When done between Acadia Road and the Gates it may
mean the driver is shortcutting over the golf links through
to Marine Drive. EDWARD J. SOPP.

He thought it woi*ld be quite

He therefore ordered Fearless

Desperate Fosdlck turned to

King came up with a brilliant
scheme* for the reorientation of the

First he convinced the Bum
that blowing up red coats would
be an un-amerlcan as being dlsro-
apectful to Edgar Hoover; and If
there was one thing the Bum was
scared of, it was the Committee for
Investigation of Un-American Activities.
Then King indoctrinated the Bum
with the Idea that the Senate was
Canada's most Important institution.
The Bum was delighted. At last
he had found a chink in London's

Canada was not handed over Immediately.
London promptly answered "We

A CHEAP method of advertising for many firms is to send
press releases to newspapers, preferalbly to columnists, hoping to get a free plug about their products. An example of this
optimism is the piece of literature sent to Flo McNeil, Ubyssey
women's editor, by the Fragrance Foundation, Inc. 9, Rocker-
feller Plaza Room 290, New York.
Tiie blurb breathlessly reveals:
Meet Force With Love
Editor,  The   Ubyssey
Ted Lee stated in the Ubyssey
that the threat of aggression is
deterred by building and keeping
up our military strength. What is
the probable outcome of 'this method?
The manufacture of war materials provides employment essential to a healthy economy. What
happens to that economy when
weapons are not destroyed? How
can any nation indefinitely produce war' materials without irreparable di'inage to Its economy?
Therefore military expenditure can
lead to war or economic chaos.
It has been thought that history,
in its role of tutorship, hae been
teaching mankind that force must
bo met by force. One man, Jesus
of Nazareth, believed force must
be met by love and patterned His
life accordingly.
Perhaps a convinced and daring
generation will turn its back on
the seemingly falaclous war method nnd seek a solution hy employing  the  weapon  of love.

witty articles for the town newspaper, the Campuswrag. The articles were read avidly by the
' inhabitants of Campus Hollow
and soon our hero found himself a celebrity.
'A Brilliant Writer'
"He Is a brilliant writer said
The People Who Ought To
Know, and Albert smiled
edly while he
typed out more
and better columns for the
people of Campus  Hollow.
Then one day the young columnist   became   discontented.
"I am a* humorist," he said.
"Yet it seems there is something lacking in my humor." He
st.'t hack  and  thought.
Suddenly it came to him!
Idea Hits Him'
"Aha!" he screamed, "I have
It—why, I havo heen writing
nothing but clean, wholesome,
All-American type literature.
What I need now Is some spicy,
double - meaning, nauseating
And so after much speculation,
Albert found a perfectly nauseating subject and wrote a perfectly nauseating column. He read it
over and thought—"Well, it's a
subject that humorists DO write
about—take, Deery Datlier and
Erie  Penny, for instance—"
'Opinions Asked'
However, he asked a few people for their opinions before he
handed in his column.
Finally the column was printed. The Backroom boys of Cam-
pusville thought it was hilarious.
Hut the office of the Campus-
wrag was besieged with letters
of protest from respectable citizens and telephone calls disrupted the peace and tranquillity
of the  inner sanctum.
Sumo of the blase members
of the Newspaper Staff, with
cigars drooping from tire d
mouths, grunted. "Ah. what's
tiie  fuss?'*
Hut some of the less blase
staffers—some of Albert's friends-looked at him disappointedly.
It seemed the golden haired
boy of the Campuswrag had lost
some   of   his   lustre.

Play Fri.
The Thunderbird Basketball
squad will move into action
this evening in the New Memorial Gym against the St. Martins tJi&llege Rangers.
The game Is strictly an exhibition affair, as St. Martins were forced to forgo games in the Evergreen
Conference because they did not
enter a squad in the American football League of this Conference.
The Birds, who looked mighty
good against Eilers last Saturday
night, will be out after their first
victory of  the season.
It may be that St. Martins will be
just the squad for the Birds to
begin a win streak with. They are
not too strong, and like the Birds
are winless so far this season.
The real tesit of the weekend will
take place on Saturday night at the
satpe floor, when the Birds come
face to face with the league-leading
Pacific Lutheran Gladiators.
This is a Conference game,"which
will be mighty important to both
teams. The Birds will be looking
for their first league victory, and
what better way could it come than
by upsetting the high-flying Gladiators.
Coaoh Jack Pomfret is amply prepared for the visiting hoopers. Gary
Taylor, a protege from the Jayvee
squad has been called up to the
Birdjt for the remainder of the season.
This, along with the return of
last year's star Ron Stuart, will
put the Birds in top shape.
Stuart has been playing for Clover Leafs in Hie Inter-city League,
and comes to the Birds ln top-
notch condition.
These will be the last home games
for the Birds until Feb. 2, when
they clash wllh the Western Washington Vikings.

It is not very often that a team scores a tie-breaking goal
with only six seconds left to play in the final period of a hockey
game, but it happened on Wednesday night when the PNE
Indians did that very thing, and stole a hockey game by a
score of 5-4 from the UBC Thunderbirds.
After  a  game  punctuated  by  a^
lfcvely  brawl,   (not  many  punches
actually landed) and two very
erroneous calls by a 'poor referee,
the PNE Indians of the Commercial
Hockey League are once more back
on top of the league standings, two
points up on the UBC Thunderbirds.
Birds fought all the way but
their team was short-handed from
penalties in the final few minutes
and the PNE Indians took advantage of this fact and are now the
league  leaders.
' As was expected, the game was
a see-saw scoring affair. PNE grabbed the first goal and Birds tied
it up shortly after, with Budy Richer performing a spectacular solo
From then on, the two teams battled from end to end of the ice
with the Birds having by far the
edge in play. It is safe to say that
If the Birds had had their shooting
eyes ln focus, the score would have
jumped Considerably,
Time ahd time again the Thunderbirds missed open nets, and shot
wide of the goal. They worked
overly hard for every goal they
scored.   In   the  case  of  the   PNE
Birds' margin of the play was so
evident in the third period, that
the fans became tired of yelling
oh-h-h every time one of their shots
was missed.
In the final and heartbreaking
period, Haas Young, with five minutes left ln the game, was hit over
the head with a stick and he spent
the next two minutes trying to
loosen some PNE teeth assisted by
Al Hood. The following five minutes, along with Len Miller, th*
culprit, he occupied the sin-bin on
a major penalty.*
Al Hood and his PNE opponent
kept them company for two minutes, with a minute and a half to
play .Kenny Hole received a board*
lag penalty which left Birds with
four men and the PNE with five.
The four Thunderbirds kept PNE
from getting closer to their goal
than the blueline until six sedonds
were left to play. At this point
PNE's Ernie Dougherty (now we
know wihy he played three games
for the Canucks), wound up on
his own blueline, swooped in on
Bill Olsen and with a beautiful shot
scored his third goal to win the
Chuck Sanderson was outstand-
their passing attacks were clicking ■ ing tor the Birds on defence, soor-
and their shooting was effective.! Ing a goal and breaking up rush
Except for their first goal, whicu aifter rush. Gunner Bailey and Ken
