NO. 35
Once again, the editors of the Ubyssey have a sad tale
to tell the students on this campus who read the Ubyssey.
As was said Tuesday, there was a definite possibility that
no copy would be forthcoming for today's issue. Some copy
did come in, and that you will find printed elsewhere on this
page, but there was no senior editor to mark up the copy, "dummy" its position in the pages, write headlines, or spend the evening at the print shop, proof-reading and assembling the next
day's paper.
There was a definite lack of reporters to cover the day's
happenings, and the Ubyssey apologizes for those events which
were neglected.
The second page of today's paper is in fairly good shape,
but only because editorial writers are in the habit of writing
their own headlines, and columns have a set headline which is
used each issue.
The sports staff has rallied again, and readers will find
a full sports page in this issue.
The Ubyssey expresses its regrets, but—editors are sure
that sbme students on the campus will feel ihis move is long
overdue. '

Criticism of our present debt
system of economy was levelled
by Mr. Roy Thomas, M.P., for Wet-
askawin, Alberta speaking to the
UBC Social Credit Club Wednesday.
Social Credit purposes to rectify
the conditions of depression and
inflation manifested by this system by couti-oliiaf tfto^etwi ear-
rency In circulation, ~ members
were told.
" ln theory,' Mr. Thomas said,
"Canadian currency has a backing
of only one eighth of It's face value."
In reply to the argument that
the success of the Alberta government was due to Income from the
vast oil resources of the province,
Mr. Thomas pointed out that governments preceding the present
Social Credit government "sat on
that lake of oil and did little if
anything to develop lt."
Asked what Alberta has that we
have not, Mr. Thomas listed five
features including: a better road
system, a non-compulsory hospitalization scheme and a system of
long term school loans.
Charges of discrimination ai|d
high-handedness were levelled against Jim Midwinter, co-ordlnator
of activities, for cancelling all
booking privileges ot the campus
CCF Club by officials Thursday.
Midwinter cancelled the club's
privileges when they failed to notify council that Tom Alsbury, former mayoralty candidate would
speak at UBC Wednesday. Midwinter said that on two previous occasions the club had failed to comply with the regulations of the
Alma Mater Society.
"Student Council should have
been consulted before such drastic
action was taken," Robert Chef-
fins, president of the CCF Club
told The Ubyssey Thursday.
He said that lt has been implied
that the club violated the rule In
the past*, warned and then chose
to ignore the warning. "It has been
made out that we are guilty of insubordination," Cheffins said.
"Actually," he continued, "we
agree with the rule and are willing
to comply with it."
"We are not going to deny negligence In this case," he said. "One
of the executive, who Is supposed
to look' after such details, failed
to make the booking."
Cheffins claimed that he waa not
given any warning and the first
news he had of the cancellation
uppeared in The Ubyssey. A letter,
written by Midwinter explaining
the situation to Cheffins, and notifying him of the cancellation, was
not received by him until Thursday morning.
Cheffins said that he would
write to council requesting that
the ban on the student political
group be lifted. Nonie Donaldson,
president of the AMS, said the letter would be considered at 8tu-
U£frr*Toimcii meeting Monday
She also said that the club could
attend In person If they so desired. Page 2

The Press Should Get In
Student councillors would do well to reconsider a decision they made late last fall
regarding who should be allowed to attend
their regular Monday night meetings.
Shortly before Christmas exams, two reporters, each representing a Vancouver eve-
ing newspaper, appeared before Council to
state their reasons for wanting to attend
cil meetings in person.
They pointed out that the existing system of holding press conferences the day
following each meeting robbed them of any
chance of getting a first hand impression
of what Council happened to be doing.
They declared that Council would be
doing itself a favor by opening up meetings
to all qualified press representatives, who
could then be put into the position of having
to play ball—witjiin reason and ethics—or
get out.
At this time the Ubyssey would like to
add its overdue expression of agreement with
that principle.
And the occasion affords us an excellent
chance to put in a bid for something which
Council and The Ubyssey together have been
needing for a long time: That is a Ubyssey
reporter to cover Council, and so remove the
dual reponsibility from the shoulders of our
editor-in-chief, who at the present, time must
conduct himself both as a reporter and a
Council member,-
Too many ticklish, ethical questions come
up for anyone to be expected to walk such
a difficult tight rope.
Furthermore, under the present system
of dealing with the downtown press solely
through "post mortem" conferences, Council is only increasing the incentive for reporters to "dig up dirt" that no competent
newspaperman would ever otherwise bother
•looking for.
The daily press reporters have proposed
. adoption of the system that has long been in
operation at city council and other important
legislative meetings:
That system calls for all reporters to treat
any matter as confidential when requested to
do so, with an alternative of leaving the
meeting until discussion of the matter has
been completed.
The beauty of such a system is that it
brings the two factions into each other's confidence, while allowing each to maintain
certain ethical standards.
More downtown publicity of Pouncil
affairs, even if it sometimes tends to emphasize a Council squabble, is better for the good
of us all than is the prospect of less publicity
through screened press conferences.
It's just about time we started letting the
public know the tremendous part the student
body plays in handling its qwn affairs.
Council, in a position to help publicize
this point, should review the whole case at

Ominee, Ominee      * *™*°«* «•«"
A performance of Puccini's "Madame Butterfly" that only intermittently showed what it might
have been was the feature presentation of this week's CBC Wednesday Night.
Although there was a refreshing
minimum of the customary "gug-
glings" aad "hammlness" that ls
often indulged in by performers of
the standard Italian repertoire,
there nevertheless was a lack of
some qualities to be found in even
tbe worst ltallanate performances
of Puccini, tVerdl, et. al. that served to make the performance a decidedly listless affair. The most important attributes in absentia were
Intensity and passion. Because of
the lack of intensity ln both voices
and orchestra, the many passages
ot the opera that are musically
ruther nondescript became even
more so, and the many beautiful
moments of serenity emerged decidedly dulled. Tbe want of passion made the ecstatic episodes
(notably the Love Duet at the close
Excuse me for being a yellow-tinged
fume, but how did The Ubyssey discover
editorially the Hind-Smith UN brief to be
The brief is about as relevant to the current situation as Mr. Les Armour discussing
sex in terms of Bishop Berkeley.
It also contains the disastrous implication that the UN has failed to function and
yet directs its appeal to this ailing body to
the exclusion of all other solutions.
The attitude of pro-brief speakers during the debate in Arts 100—which resulted
in its adoption by a 2-1 majority—was as
clear as an ostrich in a kickable position.
It was a student from Yugoslavia who
tried to remind the meeting it was discussing
a real situation. "Read Lenin and Stalin, not
the newspapers, for the aims of Communist
leaders," he said. No criticism oi the masters
has been published by Mao Tse-Tung. I took
my Lenin from an expert—a lecturer sponsored by a local union led by some of Tim
Buck's boys.
He wa.s quite keen on a "horse-trade"
such as suggested in the Ubyssey editorial.
(Have you ever dealt with a horse-trader?)
Hence I sheltered behind a copy of Mein
Kampl' while a pro-brief speaker dismissed
this as "by the way," and expounded a theory
that tho UN today comprises nations wishing
to act as "individuals."
The brief calls for Canada to act as an
individual and implies directly that recent
UN policy has been dominated by the U.S.
"to whose national interpretation of the
UN much of the present situation may be
clue." His is a UN Club appraisal of the effectiveness of the UN to which it is appealing
and of the voice of Europe in its councils.
Tho brief's phrasing, unfortunate in
many places, suggests Korea involves firstly
a question of territorial integrity and considers secondary lhe act of aggression involved. It's solution is a new policy stressing nn
"economic program for the Far East."
My hope for the UN, expressed in eyery
draft charter in the first line and finally
ratified in the General Assembly, was that
it would end "the scourge of war."
Creation of the UN was not supposed
to end all conflicts—but to end war as an
instrument of policy.
The Hind-Smith brief says, in effort, that
the war is by the way, in the whole tragedy
of the Far East, living conditions is the key.
For the UN? Surely this body, while promoting study, guidance and actual aid through
commissions, never intended to usurp the
function of government in administration of
British post-war policy in India is cited
as a guide for a new approach to the Far
East. Did Britain, in supreme power in India,
succeed in preventing bloodshed between
factions pursuing their avowed  aims?
And then recognition of Peking "along
with other de facto governments" is urged.
(Franco first, please, or Red China's first
veto will fall upon his head). The UN charter carefully skirts fhe issues of civil war,
and perhaps this will never be dealt with
until international war is controlled. The
vicious principle of de facto government was
recognized clearly in the case of Israel.
But China is clearly supporting an aggressor in the UN sense. None of the niceties of phrasing about declarations of war
can get around that.
After all, the League of Nations did not
survive its Abyssinian debacle. Could the UN
survive Korea?
Along the roads of southern Korea are
thousands of children dying of cold and
hungar by the wayside, crying "Ominee,
Ominee," for mothers who will never come.
When their cry has been answered, I will
go to the conference table and discuss their
economic situation with Mr. Hind-Smith.

of Act 1)  rather less than what
they should have been.
It seems a great pity that in spite
of the obviously scrupulous preparation given the soloists and chorus that tbe overall effect should
be that of careful attention to the
printed page at the expense ot the
dramatic values of the melodrama.
Puccini was always careful to
choose librettos that provided him
with ample opportunity to exploit
the passion of love, pathos, and the
clash of strong personalities, the
theatrical emotions that were dearest to him. Madame Butterfly combines naivete, rapture and an al-
post fanatical willpower that are
both underlined and heightened
by the music.
Perhaps the most grievous aspect of the CUC's presentation was
the absolute failure on the part of
the singers to convey any of the
broader aspects of characterize
tion let atone any of the subtelties
that are especially possible ln the
women's roles.

CBC Opera Company more than
this writer but there can hardly
be any pride manifested when the
overall effect is one of provincial
entertainment which as most people know seldom rises to a level

outstanding Christian leaders, Dr.
R. Munger of Berkeley and Dr. II.
Palmer of New York will be
brought to the campus by the VCF
and the SCM respectively.
This is a unique opportunity to
hear a clear and straight forward
presentation of the Christian Faith, the missing factor in the confused thinking of our times. May
we extend a warm invitation to all
on the campus to use this opportunity to the full by hearing as
many of these addresses as possible.

Thunderbirds Will Flutter Their Wings Tonight
All decked out in new uniforms, UBC Thunderbirds basketball squad will be out to
win a couple of ball games
this week-end when they meet
Central Washington and Pacific Lutheran College tonight
and Saturday nights respectively.
Coach Jack Pomfret will
strip 6'8" Geort Graig, a centre with two year's experience
on thetJBC Chiefs, for his first
home conference basketball
game. Craig, eligible by virtue of marks made during
Christmas examinations, will
help solve the lack-of-height
problem that has been facing
the Birds since the first of the
year- MIS
Pomfret will likely stick with
five starters of Art Phillips,
centre;  Ron Blsset and John
. . . looks good
Southcott, forwards; Willis
Louie and Maury Mulhern,
guards, for tonight's encounter
against Central, but Craig
might prove to be a valuable
asset against the backbourd
strength of, Central's Don Olson and Hal Jones, a Irnir of
67>" forwards.
With a height or 6'4 ", centre
Art Phillips will be depended
upon to do most of the rebound-
at both ends of the floor. Phillips is a handoff artist who
has a good variety of shots
with both hands, Including un
accurate hook shot.
Ron Blsset is a comparative
newcomer to Thunderbird
ranks. Previously he was captain of the squad at Britannia
High School that won the lower  mainland   championship,
Blssett is well co-ordinated
with a terrific spring on re-
is   a   graduate   of   Vancouver
bounds. With a little more experience he Hhould develop Into an outstanding player.
One of the beat left banders
in UHC basketball history is
John Southcott, who should be
one of the "leading scorers by
the end of the season. Along
with Louie and Mulhern Southcott is fairly short, but makes
up for this in his tremendous
drive and ability to finish under the basket.
Best defensive man on the
squad, as well as the fastest
is G'10" Willis Louie who is in
his second year on the Thunderbirds, A junior, he played
on the UHC Chiefs in his Freshman year and moved to the
Birds as a Sophomore.
Maury Mulhern is a transfer
student from Portland University where he played on the
Pilot baseball squad. Mulhern
• . . he's gone
College where he won nine
letters in football, basketball
and baseball, and in the 1949-
50 season he was a member of
the Vancouver Clover Leafs,
three-time Canadian champions,
So far this season the
'Birds haven't done to well,
having won pnly three of 10
games, but this may be attributed to the lack of tall men
on the team. But with Craig
in the fold this deflciancy may
be considerably checked.
Probably out for the remainder of the season will be high-
scoring Suart who failed to
make the Christmas grades.
Another star with the 'Birds
who will be active In the weekend contests ls guard Brian
Upson, who has looked very
good so far this season. This
is Upson's first year ot 'Bird

THOSE PACIFIC Coast Soccer League doors, in the past
rudely belted when salesmen fonp the Vancouver and
District league appeared, are starting to open slightly.
And from what we've heard it's this university's first division
V & D league entry that possesses the keys.
It's not that the coast league Impressarlos are overly anxious to
have teams from the district league in their fold but utter using the
crying towell gag about lack of publicity for their sugging five team
league with little success, they've found lt is new blood they need.
As a result Horace Lear and his district leaguers find themselves In
tho buyers' postlon whore as formerly they were the paddlers, sadly
lacking the goods.
Anyway .with relegation to begin operation between both groups
UDC. Firemen und South Hill have the Inside track. However UBC
has inched Just slightly ahead of the others because out here there
is a stadium and a potential supporting body.
Two decades ago, said a story in a daily paper the other day.
UBC possessed one of the finest elevens in the province. Today
Varsity's district laddies bear semblance to that* team.
UBC Is in second place in the first division league standings with
Collingwood heading the pack. But with a four game In hand record
over the Collies, the locals stund u fair chance of winning the race and
the league cup.
WI'VI HEARD THAT the local team Is favoured to overtake
Collingwood, as they certainly should with four games, but
let's look at anothor side of the story.
Last week our boys dropped out of the Mainlund Cup competition
after being setback most ungraciously by an unheard of third division
squad. This may make coust league officials think twice about
allowing UBC In.
And again do not overlook that Collingwood team Collies were
perhaps one of the deckling factors In the change of relationships
with the coast loopers after having defeated such greats as St. Andrews and North Shore last season. Not only that but the Collingwood team of this season is similar to the one which performed those
Collingwood has stretched a lengthy unbeaten record for their
present league lead and do not look as if they will relinquish it without a tremedous struggle.
This Sunday Varsity and Collingwood meet In the feature match
nt Callister. It could be the deciding game of just who is ready for
coast ball.

Penn's intramural habitat. Here one may witness a man at work
after surveying the oak desk creaking under the strain of statistical data whicli concerns 1500 or so varsity gentlemen who take
advantage of Penn's promotional abilities.
When we walked ln the other day, our friend was rubbing his

seen us coming through the doorway.

back on his chair aud said," Gentlemen, (he wus being sarcastic
perhaps), what have you to ask of uie today?"
So I opened with "Why were you rubbing your eyes?" He answers

Unfortunately nothing of the sort occurred.
"Sit down.*' bellowed the director who restrained us from jumping over his desk.
"Listen, there's no mystery attached lo this. They are merely

THIS BIG FELLOW with the gleam in his eyes will see action
tonight when UBC Thunderbirds tackle Central Washington
at the gym. His name is Arch McCallum and judging from that
determined look he'll be out to sink as many points as possible
