Students Battle For Representation
Council Decision
STOP PRESS: A petition to the Student Council to
hold another special meeting of the Alma Mater Society,
claiming Thursday's meeting was illegal, was circulated
about the campus yesterday and today. If 100 names are
on the petition, Council will have to hold another meeting, but when the meeting could be held was unknown
at press time.
• WITH STUDENTS MARCHING in and out, Jim Wilson
filibustering on the stage and council members seething,
more than 600 angry students ordered their council to send
delegates to the Saskatoon Inter-University Conference, during a special meeting of the Alma Mater Society Thursday
CHAOTIC -_______-»_____________
Confusion reigned, towards the
end of an otherwise peaceful meeting, as students shouted to have
their opinions heard. AMS President Whyte closed the meeting
abruptly at 1:30, despite protests
from students who wanted to
speak and who doubted the legal*
ity of the meeting.
Several persons claimed the
meeting was Illegal because many
students left early. Others doubted the constitutionality of the
parliamentary procedure.
Parliamentary Forumite Jim Wilson started the battle by moving
that the Alma Mater Society override Council's decision not to send
delegates to the Inter-University
Conference at Saskatoon, January
He declared that contact between
the western Canadian universities
must not be lost and said that
many benefits could be derived
from such a conference.
Paul Griffin rose to say that
the conference would be useful
to only the four student delegates
and that the expense for the benefit of four people would not be
Harold Parrot supported Griffin,
claiming that the decision was so
late that it would be difficult to
choose the right delegates and
topic, and for the delegates to arrange their ideas in proper form.
He argued that the ability of
four students to accomplish anything "somewhere ln Saskatoon"
ts doubtful.
Wilson then strode down the
aisle, past out-going students, and
mounted the stage to plead again
for his motion. ':I am here," Wilson announced.
"West is west, see?" he cried
out as he paced back and forth
across the stage. "We have certain
"Hallelujah!" cried a voice from
right front.
Feeling   was   high   as   students
DanceBand   • Religion And
applauded Wilson's sentiments.
AMS Treasurer Don Ross got up
to give Council's view on the conference before Wilson spoke.
...Ross said that the $250 was wasted on only four students. Council
colleague Murdo MacKenxle spoke
for the motion, claiming "We must
have idealism to achieve practicality."
"If UBC did not send representatives the other universities might
feel that UBC doesn't care what
happens," said MacKenzie.
After Wilson had made his fervent plea from the stage, Whyte
called a vote and declared the
motion carried.
Also discussed was a plan for
the exemption of student fees
from their income tax. Mr. Morton
proposed that students should be
given an exemption of fees from
their income tax.
He stated that a student could
earn $660 tax free, but after that
he had to pay ordinary taxes. He
pointed out that students had only
$400 to live on for the next twelve
months, and out of this sum had
to pay their rent and other living expenses.
Morton's proposal was passed.
Later an amendment was passed,
stating that the sum of $100 be
added to the original sum for the
cost of books.
The meeting endorsed the plan
for the establishment of a Physical
Health Department. Harry Franklin, speaking of the necessity for
such a department, deplored the
mental giants and physical misfits
that were being developed.
After a brief discussion a committee consisting of Harold Parrot,
Jim Wilson, Brenda Goddard, Bud
Wright and Roy Lowther was
formed to make recommendations
for the revision of the Constitution.
Don Ross, after outlining the
Council's action on the street car
question, asked the assembly to
sanction Council's action.

Date For
Mock Parl't
Now Feb 8
• DATE for the Mock
Parliament has been
changed from February 1, to
February 8. According to
Jim Clement, the program
convenor, it will be held
from 4:00-10:30, but will be
split into two sections, 4:00-
6:00 and 7:30-10:30.
It is felt that by starting at 4:00
more students will attend. As a
further inducement, the audience
is going to have the softer seats
this time. Presidents of all major
organizations on the campus will
be invited to attend.
Professor F. G. C. Wood is being
approached to act as Governor-
General, and Jack Hetherington
will again be Speaker.
This time, Instead of the Labour
Democrat party there will be a
group of Independents. This leaves
only three major parties, the Progressive Conservatives, the CCF,
and the Liberals.
The first part of the Mock Parliament will be entirely a debate
on the speech from the throne.
Although the main bill is not
known as yet, it definitely will
not be confined to economics.
Rather it will concern foreign policy, which will give everyone an
opportunity to speak.
The platform campaign will probably be held the last week of
this month.

From The Editor's Pen « « »
EDITOR'S NOTE: The Ubyssey is
honored to print in this space, an article
written by President L. S. Klinck as a
foreword for the program of the Religion and Life Discussion. The editorial
staff wishes to thank both President
Klinck and the committee In charge of
arrangements for permission to print
this article.
Transition periods, especially transition
periods in thought, are always difficult.
Through one of these periods Uie world is
now passing. Everywhere the spirit of enquiry, historical, philosophical, and scientific,
Is abroad. Nothing is being taken for granted. Among thinking men and women there
is no disposition to cease from mental fight.
With them, "the pain of a new idea" is not
a deterrent, rather it is a stimulus.
In matters pertaining to religion, intellectual integrity and honesty of purpose
require that the same principles should
«P.ply. Hence, questions relating to religion
are being reverently investigated, critically
analysed and fearlessly subjected to the
severest tests which unfettered intellectual
enquiry imposes. Increasingly it is felt that
there is nothing inconsistent in being liberal
in spirit, scientific in temper, fearless and
independent in thinking and, at Uie same
time, reverent and constructive in the search
for truth.
Of the members of religious organiza
tions on Uie campus it is pertinent to enquire: How real are your professions, how
deep is your faith? To students not associated with these organizations it is equally
relevant to submit the quesUon: What is the
reason for your lack of interest in religion?
Were these questions put to you individually, how many could give a direct, reasoned,
and convincing reply?
The religion of the campus and Uie faith
of Uie college student are matters to which
Uie visiting speakers at Uie forthcoming
University Discussion on Religion and Life
have given long and careful study. Their
addresses, I have reason to believe, will be
characterized by an understanding approach,
by clear analysis, and by conclusions which
will be neither vague in affirmation nor
sentimental in expression.
Ample opportunity will be given for
student participation in Uie discussion periods. As a result of the addresses and discussions it is hoped that new outlooks and
new insights concerning religion will be
gained, that some of Uie intellectual difficulties of individual students will be resolved, that interest in religion will be quickened, that greater spiritual poise will be
attained, and that religious life on Uie campus, whether organized or purely personal,
will find renewed expression through many
avenues x>f well-considered thought and

• I DON'T KNOW what you do with
fifteen minutes of your time each Saturday night, but I know that around 6:45 I am
either waiting for scupper, eating it, just recuperating from it, or twiddling my thumbs
waiting for Saturday night to start.
It is during this slack period that I wind
up the radio and listen to what Uie UBC
radio society is jamming Uie airlines with,
or else I toddle down to CKWX to see the
actual crime being committed. It never fails
but that Uie "show" puts me in a rosy hue
for the rest of the evening, besides effectively killing fifteen minutes.
And of all the time that has been killed
over the air, The Radio Society murders its
15 minutes with a finesse and enthusiasm
that is born of ambition and the will to
It would be hard to listen to any one of
this year's Varsity Time broadcasts and not
notice that something new has been added.
The program is different. This difference in
material has already been the source of both
complaints and praise from peepul in high
The man behind the script of the Radio
Society, who thus is directly responsible for
curdling the air waves every Saturday night,
is a lean and tall, lazy, drawling sort of
individual, Eric Ajello. Ia the short space
of two years this Mr. Ajello has jumped
from a bit player into the job of writing a
weekly fifteen minute radio show. In the
jump it is rumoured that he left a section
of his sanity behind; the section needed to
write a concise, well-knit, sensible radio
Ajello's right hand accomplice in corrupting the ether is a combination of many
voices from one larynx, Norman Campbell.
Rensaleer Mouswood, janitors, businessmen,
radio announcers, husbands, politicians and
Irish washerwomen if needed all combine
their voices in tiie versatile Mr. Campbell
who rolls them off the tip of his tongue at
the slightest opportunity. As yet, the true
voice of Norm has never been heard over
the air.
Then Uie mellow tones of announcer
Gordon Carter are another landmark of
Varsity Time. He opens the show with the
syrupy "Varsity Time takes you down ihe
Mall at (pause) UBC".
And director Al McMillan is the silent
God of the Radio Society. He is here, there,
and the next place during the show,.hob
nobbing with the control room men, and
silently muttering over-Uie script.
But far and away Uie most interesting
thing about Varsity Time is just how one
person can mix up fifteen simple minutes
on Saturday night and turn them into a bedlam of uncertainty and, at rare intervals,
It looks extremely simple; in reality it
nearly makes the script writer a nervous
wreck every week. It definitely does make
nervous wrecks out of Uie cast. It upsets
Uie equilibrium of many a listener. Here,
in a nutshell, is how it is done.
At about mid-afternoon on Thursday,
Eric Ajello interrupts a yawn to decide that
"something should be done about this week's
script." On Friday he sits before a white
sheet of paper. On Saturday Uie paper is
filled up with a radio script, nine typewritten pages of it. It's that simple. It is that
The cast sees it about an hour before
broadcast time. They practise. The control
room operator gnashes his teeth over the
"business", as the fanfares, recordings etc.,
are called.
Somebody's mother arrives to watch Uie
show. I ar|ive to watch the girl at the reception desk (worth watching). Director
Al McMillan retires to the control room to
suffer with the engineer. Invariably somebody loses a sheet of the script, and gets red
in the face watching the clock and looking
for the lost page.
The little red light flashes "On the Air"
and the group twitching before the mike
industriously go about giving everything
they've got to the script. Frequently the
script objects, and causes some embarassing
From the initial minute of the program
the heat is on. Time either marches on hurriedly or lazes along so that Uie script runs
out about three minutes too early. If you
hear Gordon Carter drawling the last lines,
the program is short; if he splutters in haste
he is racing merrily along while the control
room clock scowls.
With a final pantomime from the master
of mugging, Norm Campbell, the program
generally slams off Uie air with some characteristic good announcing leaving everybody
feeling happy, but confused.
Then everybody stands around looking
sheepish. The sdript writer remarks that
"something should have been done about
this week's script". The cast scatters for
Saturday night. I bid the receptionist a fond
good night. The air waves collect themselves
and count the missing or mutilated. Varsity
Time is over for another week.
Nothing will be done about next week's
script. That is one of Uie better characteristics of the Radio Society and one of its
peculiarities. The show may grow a lot of
corn, but for fifteen minutes it confuses the
issue enough to keep on the air.
Drop in some night at 6:45 and meet the
receptionist at CKWX. With a studio like
that, a secretary like M. Radcliff, the voices
of Norm Campbell, and the hair-brained
scripts of Eric Ajello, something is bound
to result. It does. Hell pops every Saturday
night. : y

Globe Trotters Show Today Noon
• Off The Cuff
• I WAS IN THE GYM the other day watching part of the
final volleyball game between the Betas and the DU's
and one thing struck me as lacking. Here were two teams
battling it out for the final points in that division and about
ten people were on the sidelines as spectators.
I know that Varsity spirit is low and even lacking
in some instances but it seems to me that maybe one or two
so-called lovely co-eds could come to the game and cheer
their friends on.
But no, they sit complacently in the caf, attempting to
smoke cigarettes with a professional air and waiting for some
of these friends to come and sit and gab with them.
Why couldn't they just journey over to the gym and
eat their lunch there. Or do they have to sit at their sorority
table with their own clique of friends to enjoy eating?
""Perhaps they do%not even know that a game is in progress. But that is only their own fault because the Ubyssey
tries to give intramurals a big place in the paper now that
outside Varsity competition is discouraged because of the
The women can come out if they want to as was witnessed by a fair showing they gave at the Cross-country event.
Now that the Basketball League has started, maybe the
fellows who give up a comfortable lunch hour to sweat for
their fraternity's sake could be rewarded with a bit of feminine loveliness on the sidelines cheering for them.
The old line of having too much work to do or, the war
work makes my timetable so full just won't hold for the
noon-hour games and it would certainly liven up proceedings
if they would grace the boys with their presence.
Not that we are pleading for your attendance, mind
you, but really gals, we can't get along without you.
What is needed is a campaign to get not only the women
out to the games but also the remainder of the fraternity
brothers or team members oi the squad playing that particular game. It really is amazing the number of excuses fellows
can invent when they don't have any interest for a particular
So with this tearful plea to the students at Varsity to
support the athletes still forunate enough to attend, I close
this little epic.

today at noon. This will be an
important meeting and all players
are urged to turn out.

Rugby Squad After
Rounsefell Trophy
• THE PROVINCIAL Rugby Championship will go on
the line at MacDonald Park in Victoria tomorrow at 2:30.
The principal contestants, who will battle it out to the finish
will be the Varsity team representing the mainland and
winners of the Miller Cup, and Victoria Army representing
the Island and winners of the Barnard Cup.
The strength of the Varsity out-       «--_____—_-_»_--___-_-___-.
At is a little In doubt. Before
Christmas they were the best
working aggregation that could
possibly take to the field. They
nosed out the league leading Ex-
Britannia for the Miller Cup and
trounced the Vancouver Rep team
in the first McKechnie Cup game.
Since that time they have soundly beaten a squad of rugby players
from the Fleet Air Arm of the
British Navy and only last Saturday the same two teams met
and the students bowed to the
airmen 16 to 5. What this defeat
means in the light of the impending championship game tomorrow
it is hard to say.
The Army from the Island league
have won the Barnard Cup symbol of supreme strength ln those
circles. It it a well-known fact
that the league is a very stiff one.
Centre object of the Provincial
Championship is the Rounsefell
Cup. This game is usually played
very near the end of the English
rugger season.
...However the Army Is to receive
new postings next week an,} the
possibilities of their rugger team
being broken Up is too great to
have the game played at its regular time In the season. Therefore it is being played at this date
in the place of the McKechnie

Special Benefit
For Red Cross
• VARSITY'S BASKETBALL BANS get their chance to
see the Harlem Globe Trotters in action today at noon
in the UBC gym. Again this year the Varsity Thunderbirds
welcome the world-famous basketball wizards in an exhibition contest on the campus, proceeds of which will go towards
the Red Cross.
The Harlemites started when
they opened their three-day stand
in Vancouver last night with a
show against the Minor League
All-Stars at' King Edward gym.
The two university squads were
represented by Bill Hooson of the
Varsity Senior B's and Ken Mc-
Curdle of the Frosh outfit.
The Globe Trotters, like most
teams, has been greatly affected
by the shortage of players. Nevertheless, Abe Sapersteln has a
stronger crew this year than he
had last season. Here is a list of
the negro stars:
"BABE" PRESSLEY-A Cleveland hoopster who has been with
the Trotters for six years, now.
He is Abe's key defense man.
TONY PEYTON-From Toledo.

Harlem squad. Handles Basketballs as if they were only baseballs.

the team is built. Tallest man of
