'The musical show is on an eight-
month tour ot Canada and the

North America and Austria, while
on the other hand they are learning as much as possible about American ways and customs, to spread
their knowledge in Austria on their

housed In fraternity and sorority
houses, and college dormoritles.
The group consists of 10 girls
and 20 boys. They were carefully
selected from among hundreds of
applicants and trained in a lovely
Baroque castle on the outskirts of
In the show, they offer rollicking songs, dances and yodelling
numbers culled from the folk ways
of all Austria.
The group has been sent by thc
"Buero fuer Studentenwanderun-

World War I by Dr. Oskar F. Bock,
lecturer at tbe University of Vienna.
Art Director and Mistress ol

200 Summer Jobs
Still Available
A greater proportion of UBC students will be -working at Jobs obtained through the university employment service, this year, said
H. O. Hayes, employment service
Following the statement In the
Ubssey last week that there are
still jobs available. 1000 students
have taken most of the available
There are still over 200 jobs
left, however, said Hayes.
For men, there are positions in
the fields of surveying, mining, logging and forestry. For women there
is work at the B.C. Telephone Co.,
the Provincial Mental Hospital,
summer resorts and playgrounds
for which a knowledge of first aid
Is hecessary.
Students will have to wait until October 17 before choosing
a vice-president for the Alma Mater Society.
This decision was handed down^-
late Monday night by the 1951-52
Council   during   Its   first   official
session. " ;
Councillors passed the content!-
ous motion by  a  9-2  vote, with
MAD President Bill Sparling and
Secretary Anita Jay dissenting.
"Elections must be hjBld immediately. Students rejected the idea
of postponing them at the general
meeting," Sparling declared. "It's
too late In the fall."
' Champion of the motion was
Junior member Ted Lee, who told
the meeting:
'The calibre of the vice-presidential candidates would be doubtful If elections were held at this
late date (In this term).
"No one with any sense would
"Neither scrutineers nor candidates would have time to arrange
a campaign."
President   Vaughan   Lyon   also
held out for an Immediate election,
hut 8R chairman of the-meeting 4ie
had no vote.
The new president challenged
Ted Lee's statement that the calibre of candidates now would likely
be low.
"I know that one defeated presidential candidate would run if elections were held now," Lyon declared. ,
He declined to say whether be
'neant' Ivan Feltham or Al West-
sott, who were his two opponents
In last February's presidential race.
Lyon   held   that  the  vice-president would be needed to do "a lot
>f valuable work" this summer.
Anita Jay, opposing the motion,
pointed to last fall's situation, in
which retiring President Nonie
Donaldson was moved up from the
combined post of vice-president and
president of women undergraduates.
"She was elected because the fall
was too late for anyone else to take
)ver," Miss Jay declared.
Student councillors were left
with a choice between an election
low or one next tall, after Thurs-
lay's general meeting rejected a
>lan for postponment of the choice
intil the spring of 1952.

Prospective candidates for the position,
should bear several things in mind. They
must keep in close touch with Council's ac^

may be), and, if th*y are to aasuraeadminis-

spend considerable time analysing these complex and often unweildy organizations.

president so they can bring it up to the students again at the fall general meeting. They
are not an organization which can lightly be
dumped into an incoming officer's lap.
It is high time that an official responsible
to the student body was given control over
these groups. Up to now neither group.has
been represented. They are at present wide
open to control by small groups, who.might
show more {interest in their own entertainment than in the well-being of the organizations they represent.
In the past year ISS and NFCUS, have
been in competent hands, but this is no guarantee that student leaders of high calibre will
continue in command.

university which will serve all tho
cultural, educational and scientific
needs of this province.
I agree that students should
begin to organize now. Students
need some means of expressing
their support for tbe university;
the spell of apathy on the cam-
pusmustbe broken. What is council-slaving to do?
We must not allow the government to turn our university hack
into a.provincial backwoods col-
Graduate Student.
$ To More Horn-Blowing
Even before we know the outcome pf
UPC's pleas for increased provincial grants,
it is clear that part of the deplorable situation
in whjlfh we now find ourselves can be directly traced, hack to the student body.
We don't mean that students have conducted themselves in such a way as to incur
the scorn or wrath of the Legislature Cabinet.
But we are horribly guilty of a negative
Sin: We've failed, so far, to sell ourselves to
British Columbia.
Student leaders commonly complain that
the good which students do here is consistently overlooked, while the relatively little
evil is highly advertised.
Such a claim, of course is a greatly exaggerated statement of an actual truth. But
What they never seem to realize is that although detrimental news will always get out,
it could easily be outweighed by favourable
reports. of student activities.
In short, it's time we started blowing our
own horns, and blowing them louder and
oftener th^n ever before.
When we think of public relations, we
shouldn't think of a field so narrow that it
only includes the press and radio.
Why haven't we a regular slate of student speakers constantly at work selling
UBC and the Alma Mater Society to service
clubs and other organizations in and around
And why not bring some of these groups
out to the qampus for a real look at the institution which many of them have probably
never seen?
How many people in B.C. know or care
that our AMS is renowned in university circles throughout the Continent as one of the
most efficient and autonomous student governments?
Would Joe Citizen think of our extracurricular activities as "just so much play"
(the way he quite likely does now) if he
knew about the 60-odd clubs under LSE, and
the things they are achieving?
Isn't it time that the public what the
AMS does with its $60,000 annual budget?
Right now, UBC and its student body
stand in the same relation to B.C. as the
moon does to the earth:,,Everybody^kfiqws
its there, but only a few "idle:dreajners" can
see any value in it.
It's time the AJma Mater .Society instituted a public ri?Jat|pns .poliipy tjiit.wp^jd
show B.C. that students here can be. as, hard-
headed and practical as the best businessmen in the province.
Most important of all, we must explode
the myth that UBC students are a species of
ape-like hell-raisers onjy distantly related to
homo sapiens.
•Sheers for your^Horial ,"*t^ss

Campaign Of Truth?
(The following is from The Daily Californian column, 'As I See It,' a column open
to readers of the paper.)
There has been a lot of publicity recently
regarding the U.S. "campaign of truth" to
"Communist lies and distortions." In view of
the following two situations, I am confused
as to who is lying and distorting.
1. The other day I had occasion to glance
through the University of California Extension Department catalog of education pictures fpr 1950-51. Imagine my surprise to discover, a film entitled "Battle of Russia," No.
3544 produced by the U.S. Office of War Information and summarized as fellows:
"The story of Russia's struggle against
invaders, ancient and modern, is told in two
parts . . . We are given an outline of the
fabulous natural resources and manpower
converted by these ancient powers and by
Upon inquiry, I learned that this and all
similar films have been taken out of circulation within the past year by the Federal Government. Either this film and its implications
are not true or the current propaganda which
refutes these films is false. f-Jo matter how
you look at it, The ILS. government has
clearly distorted facts somewhere.
2. Recalling the Army training manuals
I was exposed to during World War II, I
checked in the library and found, at the Government Documents desk, War Department
pamphlet No. 21—30 dated April 23, 1945,
and entitled "Our Red Army Ally." In clear
and forthright terms it points out that the
Red Army soldier is the American's friend
and ally. It tells of his great courage and initiative, and his faith in his leaders.
It even says that soviet medical men inr
vented the blood bank system. According to
the U.S. War department five years, ago, the
men of the Red army want only to return to
their * homes so that they can build a happy
life. Their only reason for fighting is to punish
the German invaders who slaughtered millions of Russians and led other millions into
I suggest that our ROTC students read
this pamphlet and check it with current U.S.
Government dogma in the great "campaign
of truth."

This year's council will be present as guests during the
early part of the meeting.
Bauer Lectures On Homing
Housing projects should be
planned In terms of social patterns,
Mrs. Catherine Bauer, consultant
to the Housing and Home Finance
Agency In Washington, told a student meeting Friday.
•Mrs. Bauer, also the author of
Housing" and "Housing In the
United States" and a lecturer at
the University or California, gave
her address in Biology 100 at noon.
An expert on community planning, Mrs. Bauer said that dwellings   within   a   housing   project
should be "built not only as a
single unit, but also as an Integral
part of the neighborhood.
"A community Is not Just a conglomeration of houses," she declared. "A good community life
can develop despite Its physical Inadequacies;   on   the   other   hand
several hooka  Including "Modem -some of our most modern projects
may become grim and dead."
Mrs. Bauer pointed out the necessity of Including shops, nursery*
schools and recreational facilities
within planned communities.
"There was one example of a
housing project near Santiago
where they failed to include these
facilities. The community was a'
distinct failure."
"One of the real dangers in housing today," she continued, "is
over-paternalism. If too much control is handed over to management
the community becomes like an
old-fashioned orphan asylum. A
certain amount of responsibility
should be placed in the hands of
tenants with a view to democrat-*
king production.
The International Student
Service has received several
letters and.pamphlets concerning summer tours abroad.
They are worth looking into since
many offer, at moBt reasonable
rates, an excellent opportunity of
seeing Europe.
The "See Europe the New Way"
sponsored by the Danish International Student Committee ls an example. They have formulated a
plan which provides students with
a tailor made itinerary, planned
according to their request, for a
group of two, three or four, and a
European student guide. The means
of travel will be a new car and all
at a very low price.
For Students not going abroad
there is a foreign language program
at the . University of Washington
offering both educational and social
opportunities to students having
at leaBt one year of French, Spanish or Russian. Discussions, dramatics, singing, dancing, excursions
are all Included.
All those Interested are welcome
to drop in to the ISS office in the
huts behind the Brock at any time.

Take 'Bird
They say every team has to lose
one once in a while and the UBC
Thunderbird rugger squad proved
to be no exception. Last Saturdayl
the 'Birds ended up on the tall-
end of a 17-8 count In a McKechnie
Cup match • against Vancouver
Those who were among the
very few In the stadium will probably agree that It waa one ot the
finest games seen in these parts
for some time.
Vancouver started off scoring'
three tries within 10 minutes, the
first occurring in the first 30 seconds of play. Jack Armour scored
the first one before the 'Birds realised they were in a ball game,
and before they recovered from
the Initial shock of this turn ot
events the Reps drove over the
line once again, also courtesy ot
Armour. The third try was made
by Hillary Wotherspoon after previous attempt was averted. This
third try was the only one to be
converted by Wotherspoon.
UBC was quick in recovering
their senses and after a kick by
Oeorge Pull, Buxon and Dunlop
almost fell on the ball.
Minutes later a kick by Jack
Smith started off a train of events
which resulted In an eventual try
by I-our MacMillan. John Olsen
kicked the convert to make the
score 11-5. *
Till the end of the half the ball
went from one end of the field to
the other with  Reps gaining thev
advantage  In  play  by  virtue  of
their superior kicking.

In the women's events, Victoria made short work of the
Thunderettes who were whitewashed 42-0. For the local
femmes Peg Hennlnger was
the out sand ing performer.
With the 8wlimning season
now officially over, statistics
show that Nick Stobbart was
the squads' outstanding performer. Competing In 25 events
during the season, he scored
102 points for UBC or an average of 4.1 out of a possible
five points per event. He broke
or established six National
Intercollegiate, Conference and
UBC records during the year.

The locals took advantage of
one of numerous downfield rush-

Dominions tied the score in the
final period of play. A spectacular
day by Varsity's Hob Moulds put
the winners back Into the lead.
Varsity is now in first place with
