To Colleges
HALIFAX — (Special)—Dr.
A. E. Kerr, president of Dal-
housie University, declared that
most student newspapers are
"poor advertisements" for
their universities.
In a letter to student council
president, George A. Kejr, he
asked that'students raise the
standards of the twice-weekly
Gazette, Canada's oldest college newspaper.
"The university recognizes the
freedom which belongs to the Ga-
sette as an official student publication and carefully refrains from
Infringing on it» proper rights,"
aajd Dr. Kerr In a letter addressed
to Council President George A.
Kerr and published in* the Gazette. The university and council
presidents are not related.
Montreal Defeated
By Last Day Spurt
University of B.C. has claimed the Canadian Intercollegiate
Blood Drive.
The announcement came as a surprise after officials checked
jver the handicap ratings and found that UBC was tops in the
race for the blood title with 79 percent of their quota, a total of
2,972 pints.
Although the drive is not officially over, University of
Montreal, UBC's nearest competitors, have finished their drive
with 72.6 percent, and nearly all of the 14 remaining universities
have completed their appeal for donations.

passed the shoe around the room to collect nearly 12 dollars for the flood fund. Cullen's

ompletion    of    university    blood
UBC's tremendous victory came
as a result of students responding
to an appeal for donations on the
last day of the drive Tuesday.
Still 290 pints'behind Montreal,
Forestry students, sponsors of tho
drive, made a desperate last minute appeal for donations. Both
Forestry and Engineering students
bodily dragged donors to the Armouries.
Profeesors voluntarily cancelled
classes and led students to the
Ked Cross clinic.
The result was that the largest
single day total of donors, 417
students, gave a pint of blood and
virtually cinched the Corpuscle
Cup for UBC.
Last spring 54."> percent of the
student body gave blood to set
what was then a world's record
for collegiate blood donations.
This drive attracted 55.3 percent
of the enrollment.
Reason that the announcement
of UBC's victory came as a surprise wus that to date the university's totals had been expressed
as a percentage ot the enrollment.
Rules state that all 16 participating
schools are rated on a handicap
basis on the laws of probability.
As one of the larger universities,
UBC received a larger rating. University of Montreal racked up a
tor il of ."> percent of their 20:18
enrollment. UBC's "».">. :i percentage
was figured on the enrollment of

Who Controls Athletes?
The action of the Senate in rescinding their
freshman eligibility ruling has been heralded
as a worthwhile step toward studeni autonomy. Now that the freshman ruling on athletics is to become part of the constitution of
the. Men's Athletic Directorate rather than
a ruling by the Senate, the principle of student control of student affairs has been upheld.
Under the Ostrom plan the supervision of
athletics on campus is under the joint faculty-
student administration of the Men's Athletic
Committee. This control is, however, more
desirable than a ruling by the Senate which
the students had no part in formulating.
The principle of student autonomy in this
matter has been reaffirmed, but as far as
changes in the freshman ruling are concerned
little was gained^ The present ruling affecting
freshman participation in Varsity athletics is
almost identical to that originally passed by
the Senate.
When the question of athletics was under
discussion at AMS general meetings in the
fall the students indicated that they wanted
a change in the freshman ruling and that such
rulings should be under student control
rather than under the control of the Senate.
Only half of this has been achieved.   The
recommendations of the Men's Athletic Directorate were apparently made in a spirit oi
compromise in the hopes that the Senate
would agree to their ruling if it were essentially the same as that passed by the Senate.
If this is the case, then the talk of student
autonomy is quite meaningless because the
students are giving way completely to the
wishes of the Senate.
The arguments of the Senate in favour of
the freshman ruling have a certain merit and
should be carefully considered.! The fear of
commercialized Varsity athletics and consideration of the high percentage of failures in
the freshman year are strong points in favour
of the ruling. Nevertheless, it is still the case
that on this campus the immediate enforcement of such a ruling would place the Varsity
teams in dire straites at a time when they are
desperately trying to build up teams which
can make a good showing in competition with
other universities.
How carefully these factors were considered by the MAD in drawing up their recommendations is debatable. The MAD would
perform its functions much better if it more
carefully considered the needs of the campus
and the wishes of the students and did not
try so carefully to duplicate the rulings of
the senate.
Who Wants Spring?
For days now we have been preparing to
write an editorial glorifying the beauties of
Spring. The weather, however, has played
a tantalizing game of hide and seek, running
the gamut from Florida climate (the advertisement kind) to Winnipeg wintet( the nightmare clime). Our patience is now exhausted.
Spring it will be even if we contract pneumonia in the process.
After all, it would certainly not do to be
beaten by The McGill Daily, or worse, the
Manitoban, in announcing the coming of
Spring'. We, therefore, now categorically state
that we know a man who claims a friend of
his saw crocuses in bloom.
Not that we have really any particular
affection for the spring season: we are only in
Ihe weather boasting racket for sheer patriotic love of Vancouver and the tourist dollar. All these associations of Spring and
Love seem to have gone sour in this province.
Come spring, loggers go back to camp for
the love of money, fishermen come back from
California for the love of the dollar, UBC
students come out of hibernation for the love
of the Registrar, who has to keep up hi.s
statistics of the falling level of spring exam
What love with a capital L L* ihere on a
fishing boat in Hecatus Strait, in a logging
camp on one of the upcoast inlets, in the
library just before exam time?
Thanks, we have taken our choice. We are
going back to our winter sleep.

For University students to baud together in clubs
Is a common enough undergraduate activity in any

who enjoy ehnppiug ill each olher wilh sabres
would hardly find an associative eompuli-iinn in
what Is esteemed hy the Corinthians ill an iip-und-
coining; School of Mines; the fellowship founded on
winter sports would not solicit the classicist as

have to go it, alone, lint cougcniulily as viewed by
the undergraduate can assume strange and often
huflling forms in tin- system of (Ireei; letter fraternities which constitute the social clubs al moil
American  colleges and   imiversit.ien.
The club, in lliis case, is usually a local ''chapter"
of :i national ni-gatii/al ion whose name consist- of
two or three letter-; from Ihe Creek alphabet.
There arc scores of these organizations, ami their
chapters may number anything from a do/.en lo
Iwo hundred or more. The foremost of them claim
a total mcmbeiiiliip of ;■■ Inm I 'I ,;,nn,nuii, of whom
prrhaps a tenth or an eighth are undergraduates
ami Ihe rest alumni. At a small college as many as
SO-percent of the student belong to fraternities, a'

their influence depend-. heavily on local \aiiab|e,.

who will openly threaten on occasion to Incite the
alumni against him if he persists In policies at odds
with thine of tiie national fraternity. Hly indulging
the presence of the I Seta llela chapter on its campus, the college may have wandered into a kind
of compact with lleta I lota, and and implied endorsement of its views. This can become embarrassing,
especially to a S.'ate university supported by public
funds, when llela lleta's con-dilution and the charier of its local chapter are found to exclude, however florid the protestations of high purpose, all
Negroes, ('illholies and .lews from the sacred aud

The baffling twist on litis situation comes each
year at Ihe meeting of the National Inter-fralernll.v
Council, a Mud of trade .unsocial ion of the fraternity
industry. Al the meeting in New York recently a
special committee held out for 'autonomy" lu whn'
ii called "students' organizations"; it inveighed
against colleges where fraternities have been
ordered lo end their avowed racial and religious
discrimination or face expluslou from the campus.

Kditor, the Ubyssey,
Dear Sir;
After reading the recent ''Engineers' " edition of the Ubyssey,
and alter reviewing reports I have
received ln the last few days, 1
believe 1 have grounds on which
to bate a protest agates* the publication of that Issue. While tne
Imroovulity of that paper probably has little effect on the students on the campus, at moat of
us must realise that this type of
humour)?) la encouraged and,enjoyed by a type o f person NOT
typical ol the student body, it has
a tremendous potential effect
among those OFF the campus.
1 have received reports that
copies of the Issue are appearing
throughout the Juvenile population In Vancouver, both In and out
of Bleepintary and High Schools.
Copies have spread amongst the
adult populace as well, possibly
giving a gross misrepresentation
' of our university.
Far these reasons 1  feel that
In future more discretion should

Dear Sir:
No one is more eager that tho
functions of the Pre-Meds be well
supported aud successful than the
group who co-ordinate nnd plan
them. Nevertheless this need for
participation Is not so urgent that
we need to stoop to the sex-or-
crime level of writing to entice
the throngs to our parties. We re-
<fer of course to the staff member who found It necessary to
practice his 'wit' at our expense
and dig his fingers into the clay
that was someone else's mould-
To those who spent a goodly
number of hours drafting copy
for the Pre-Med Page of the Tuesday Ubyssey in an attempt to
publicize In a decent and respectable manner our forthcoming
spring ball, this complete slaughter of material submitted Is a significant indication not only of disrespect for'ability but also of disparagement, of sincere effort.
l-'or the remainder of the I'm
dergrad Soc. such a hideous report brings questions of the standards of decorum that ln past
years has been maintained at our
social functions. It is not the wish
of the 200 members ot the I'M US
to disgrace themselves or the
guests of honor among whom are
the Dean of the Faculty of Medicine and the President of the University  himself. '
It Is of course the privilege of
the    writer   to   express   himself
freely and It  Is the right of the
editor of the Ubyssey to lot puss
what   material   bis   subordinates
write or 'hash  up' as ho sees It.
We should ask, however, I hat his
'pku-e-liuntlng' newspaper men be
supervised to the extent, that their
talents   are  directed   towards   activities less harmful to so many.
Yours  truly.

Dear Sir;
A recent letter by (iartrell.
Parker und Wakhi'iueiieff about
the proposed- Canadian-Soviet exchange otutes, "The question to'
keep our eye on In this dispute Is:
Would the ex mange help or hinder 'be cause of Ue democratic
world?" With this part of the
letter 1 can agree but not with the
rest of 't.
A*, the present time It Is apparent that t he Communist.* arc.

program of expansion to, as they
hope, world domination, they
must reduce the possibilities .of
revolt from within.
H the people, in these subjtv
gated countries, lose al) iiope of

to their fate. The Communists
therefore, try to convince these
people that the Western World
no longer cares about their
plight. Lideed we care so Utile
about the mthut we are ooy
era ting with the Communistd. A
llttld exchange can belp the Com
munlat,program to a considerable
extent. "John Canuck attends the
University in Moscow'' Is the
story for Pr^vda. Only the true

carry with thein the Idea, "Sec
the Western Democracies are
working with us now, you had
better give up your resistance."
A good example of this '.ype of
propaganda  h  the  recent  peace
congress attended  by  many  oh
servers  and j/eople  who  wanted
to  find out  wha t  It  was  reall;
like. The true facts are given to
us, "High Church Dignitaries At

supposed  to  get  tbe   idea   tha
theso churchmen approve of th-
movement. If an observer writes
a contrary renort we might see
it, but the oppressed peopel insldi

they  must base their actions on
the true facts as presented.

Endicott Wrong
Kditor, tho Ubyssey, I
Hear Sir; I
Please allow 'inc. through the
medium of this paper, to com
ment upon Hie conduct of the
meeting ut which the Kev. .lames 1
Kndicott spoke regarding peace
In Korea. To introduce my remarks in their true light, let me
say that I disagree with the basic-
premises upon which Dr. Kadi
cott's arguments rest. As a research biologist and an entomologist, l find the conclusions
which be drew from his evidence
on germ warfare quite unsound.
I spent many hours studying
his document, 'i Accuse.'t The
entomological "evidence" Is a
complete farce. The leagedy of
Dr. Kndicott Is his obvious sin
eerily lu erroneous conclusions.
Paradoxically, bis sincerity allows him to employ an Illogical
or crooked line of inference.
I would like to extend my compliments to the student body lor
their Insistence on the right of
hearing Dr. Kndicott. Special congratulations must be offered to
the president of the AMS for
establishing and maintaining Ihe
dignity and fairness of the meet
ing. Though I believe that Dr.
Kndicott is very, very mistaken.
I think that this university can
lie proud of giving expression to
those rights which Dr. Kndicott.
is unwittingly seeking to destroy.

Kditor,   the   I'byssey,
Dear Sir:
It Is no doubt possible that Dr.
Hewlett Johnson Dean of Cant-
erbiiry, may come to speak in
Vancouver or perhaps at our university, during his Canadian tour.
I sincerely hope that I'BC students will not glv* him the same
Immature and undisciplined treatment that he received from the
students of the University of
Western Ontario when lie attempted to speak at a meeting in
London. Ontario, recently. (See
the News-Herald, Page 1, Feb. 21,
Tiie Dean Is an intelligent man,
and holds a position of authority;
and -although he may be a Communist, he should not be denied
the right to speak. He has travelled extensively in sections of
the world not frequently visited
by those living outside the Iron
Curtain, and without doubt he hus
many interesting and controversial experiences to relate. If, after
he has given tils talk, the audience violently disagrees with hip
ideas, then, surely, Is the time
to make Its feelings known.
Yours faithfully.

Reverend Blasts
Religious Politics
Blasting blind political partisanship, Reverend Keith Wool-
lard told students Wednesday that it was impossible to imbed
Christian principles in a political party and expect that party
to succeed.
The minister of St. Johns United Church, talking on "My
Political Pilgrimage", said that the present Social Credit use
of religion in politics will result in a new kind of fanaticism in
political activity.

indictment of IUS and his, recommendation became the foundation

Raghblr Basi, president of the
National Federation of University
Students, charged that the US's
exclusion of Denis Lazure from the
States would seem to be a direct
result of Lazure's activities for
"I have the pleasure to know
Laaure personally and can - safely
vouch for him," said Basi, "«nd
that whatever he did as a representative of Cnndtan university
students was in complete sincerity
to further International understanding and was backed by 16
out of 20 Canadian University student bodies."
Executive of NFCUS has discussed the matter with Prime
Minister Louis St. Laurent, and on
being referred by hlm to Dana
Wllgren, Under-Secretary of State
for ICxternal Affairs, the case was
further clarified to the Canadian
government. Mr. VVilgren understood the case and promised to deal
with the US government through

place but agreed with students
that   these   measures   were"   Inadequate for the populus.
Discussing lack of rehabilitation aud vocational facilities,
student Flo McNeil! remarked
that the prison farm "is little
more than u lockup."
Prison officials admitted that
little was being done by outside
agents to find Jobs for discharged Inmates but stressed "that
the situation has Improved greatly during; the  past months."
Tour guides were surprised
when students greeted inmates
of Y.O.lI. by first names, They
later learned that students of
criminology and social work III!)
had paid an informal visit to the
'young offenders some weeks be-
bore and- had become acipialnted
at that time.
Dr. Topping has been taking
his criminology classes on a tour
of Oakalla since l!>2s. lie feels
that It giys students a greater
understanding of Canadian penology and promote^ better relations with the prison.
Branding himself an "Independent", Woollard suld, "As a student
at the University of Saskatchewan,
I started out as an idealist."
He told the audience of the influence Saskatchewan premier T.
C. Douglas had on himself.
"! wouldn't be In the ministry
today if it wasn't for the Impact of
Tommy Douglae' personality."
A member of parliamentary
forum ut the university, 'Woollard
became an independent after graduation.
The speaker asked students to be
sympathetic towards J, A. Reid, the
Social Credit member for Salmon
Arm who recently charged that our
.educational system was corrupting,
"Reid Is illiterate In the ways of
parliamentary debate. Hes learning, Just like you are learning. The
only thing Is that he has just
flunked his first course."
Woollard said that the OCF demand for the resignation of Reid
is a good "publicity trick," but
'that's all.
He mentioned Education Minister
Tilly Rolston's recent statement
that "The Social Credit party Is
tu power, not by the will of the
people, but by the will ot Ood."
Woollard said statement* like
this Infer that Ood has decided
which politicians are most fit to
Commenting on the use of religion ln politics, Woollard said
that the newly formed Christian
Democratic party would "get nowhere because they have an axe

Paintings Adorn Campus
Ever curious as to who decorates the rooms on campus? I was
astonished today in the Brock
Coffee Shop when a friend point*
ed out the paintings on the wall
and told me who the artist was.
,Do you know? '
It seems that the cook's husband, Mutt Hasz, one day, felt
the 'urge to express himself on
canvas' and the results now
adorn the walls ip tfle Brock,
and Fort Camp Dining Rooms.
His wife stated that he took up
painting 15 years ago when he
was encouraged by another
artist who advised him to continue the good work. *
A few of the opinions from the
UBC students continues. Al Gold
smith, a critical judge of the female sex, favors the portrait of
the girl because it embodies
character and natural pose. "The
Blackout" was the most appeal-
lngto Gerry Duclos, and Geoff D.
found that the Ballet Dancer remind him of someone he knows.
Betsy Forbes favors the Brewery

Ken did, one has to be expert In -at

expert means achieving a first,

Gymnastics are not Ken Doolan's
only field of athletic endeavor.
He is very Interested In pole vaulting, did a lot of It at Kits., and has
holies of turning out for the Varsity track team if and when he gets
the time.
Of great import now is Ken's
ability as a diver. He won the senior boys diving championship at
Kitsllano High two years n a row
and last, year was runner up to Al
Uorthwck. 4th year Phys. Kd. major and also of I'BC. who won the
Evergreen Conference divlnr
With these two top Conference
divers on our side, I'BC should be
pretty happy at their chances in
this year's Conference which opens
at Belllngham in about two weeks.
Ken's greatest thrill, he admits
modestly was lauding on his head.
In fact most gymnasts agree that,
then- is nothing quite like it.

Well, I can see my leering friend across the page wants
to wrassle. Only too glad to, Hutch.
First, I think It should be noted
thut Hutch Is a little prejudiced
when it comes to dealing with the
Western Interprovlnclal hookup.
He was recently run out of Saskatchewan and still spends most of
his spare time weaving gopher
I'm from Saskatchewan too, but
I hope it doesn't show on me like
it does on yonder yokel.
Now don't get me wrong, I love
sir John A. MacDonald, 1»67, the
Maple Leaf Forever and Princess
Margaret as much as you do, (especially Princess 'Margaret), but
,1 Just can't seeiwhere we are going
U> get the money to fly 25 football
players to Winnipeg.
It would be nice If we could play
patty-cake with the prairie boys,
but we haven't that sort of moola
lying around the MAD's piggy bank.
Mayhe Alberta, Saskatchewan and
Manitoba, all with smaller enrolments than UBC, have the necessary cabbage but 1 doubt it.
Aside from the cost of Johnny
Owen's safari to the wilds of the
wheat province, the Western Interprovlnclal couldn't offer ue enough
games. UBC would have exactly
three home games.
Right now I can hear Hutch
screaming fro macross the page
that we can fill out our schedule
with exhibition games with Evergreen squads. Playing exhibition
tilts with the Evergreen schools Is
quite all right with me as long as
we play all our games with them.
Why play half in one league and
half In another?
I think the bl gthlng the Western
Interprovlnclal supporters are Ignoring are the minor sports. Sure,
football Is the big glamour sport,
with basketball a clone second.
Football and basketball get all the
headlines and therefore all the
criticism when they lose. The facts
that are being ignored is that on
the whole we do okay in the Ever-
i greien-witli-scholarships circuit.
i     Here's the record:
Swimming—UBC swim team has
never been beaten In the Evergreen
Conference meet.
eTniiis -We have won tho Evergreen title two of the last three
years, including last year.
Golf—We have won the golf
cbampioiMhip every year since we
entered the Evergreen Conference.
Track -Considering there Is no
one nt UBC when the Evergreen
meet is held in May, we get by.
Skiing—Again, we've never been
beaten by an Evergreen team.   ■'
Baseball—At present baseball is
not played ln the Evergreen but
UBC walloped (and we mean clobbered! Western Washington twice
last Spring.
Stuff that Into your bay window,
Hutch, and digest it.
Are you going to fly swimmers,
tennis players or golfers from
UBC, Alberta, Saskatchewan and
Manitoba to a central spot for
meets? The farthest distance UBC
has to travel to an Evergreen
Vlioo lis Spokane, 403 miles aiway.
The nearest prairie school is Edmonton, over 800 miles away. In
terms o fcash and travelling time
it just ain't practical.
Come on down out of the clouds,
Hutch. Your ivory tower is beginning to get stained with green dollar bilte.

Heeding the oft heard cry of
Varsity's female athletes, today
the editor has consented to let
