Eds Return to Paper
EDMONTON, Alta.,-(CUP)-Editor
Don Smith and managing editor Irene
Bowerman have returned totheir respective posts as controlling powers of
The Gateway, student newspaper of
the University 6f Alberta.
Smith and Miss Bowerman resigned
early in December when they claimed that they had to work too hard
producing their student newspaper.
Main complaint was that they were
too busy producing the paper to train
other students to help.
Four ex-editors have returned to
The Gateway offices to instruct the
junior staffers. They are Jim Woods,
Herb Laycraft, Bruce Pow and Dick
Sherbaniuk,  1948-49 editor-in-chief.
Eastern sources had reported that
editors Smith and Bowerman would
not return to their" positions on Tiie
Gateway. In a statement here yesterday both signified their willingness
to continue in their positions.
Ex-editors, alumni and faculty who
formed a special committee when editors resigned produced an intrim paper called  "The Fencepost."
The Alumni. Association printed a
picture paper, which was all pictures. It cost several thousand dollars.
Editors Smith and Bowerman received their positions in April, 1949.
The Gateway is a member of Canadian University Press.
Student Council Allows Movement
To Submit New Constitution to LSE
After a long and drawn out fight the UBC Peace Council
movement proposed by Dr. J. C. Endicott over a year ago may
be formed on the campus.
Student Council allowed the movement to submit a constitution in hopes of forming as an LSE club. Councillors will
have to pass the group's constitution within three weeks.
Peace council was originally suggested by Dr. Endicott
after a meeting in January, 1949. The group was composed
of several clubs and club executives.
Squashed Request
WALT EWING, AMS Treasurer, speaking for Student
Council said today that since
the United Nations Club would
not admit the Peace Council
to their ranks Student Council
had no alternative but to accept their bid for club status.
"Incidently," said Ewing, "they
only have about seven members."
Mr. H. B. IVIatinsell, Business
Manager of the AMS lias prepared
financial statements for a\\ clubs
to enable them to remain financially secure.
All student treasurers nre requested to pick up statements in
thc AMS office at thc earliest possible time.
"By obtaining a statement of
their club's position," said Mr.
Maunsell, "treasurers will see how
finances stand at this time."
Their first president (an intrim officer) was Tom Walden.
Others interested in the movement were Dr. Black and Ron
Smith of the UN.
Student Council squashed the first request made by the
club for formation under the LSE in early 1949.
"We feel that the group would only be doing the same work
as the UN club," said 1948-49 AMS president Dave Brousson.
"And we have a UN club now."
Protest meetings were held on the campus, the parliamentary forum held debates on the subject and the instigators of
the Peace Council movement started a petition to call a general
AMS meeting and take their case to the students.
The meeting was held in conjunction with the Spring
General meeting.
Flatly Denied
The Peace Council meeting was one of the largest meetings
ever held by the Alma Mater Society. Over 5000 students attended. At the meeting, students flatly denied Peace Council
to form on the campus.
Just before Christmas 1949 new councillors suggested the
club be allowed to submit a new constitution for judgement.
"It first goes to the LSE executive who vote to receive or
reject it," said Junior Member Peter de Vooght, "and then
it goes before Council and for the same procedure."
"Council hna the final say," continued de Vooght.

is going to be a little more complicated because of the white rtuff.
Building and grounds chief Mr. Jack
Lee has had crews working on the
campus all night clearing roads, .>uthi
and parking lots.
The university has engaged a bulldozer for the heavier work while
crews of men have been busy with
shovels and sidewalk snow-plows.
Reports from the Provincial Police
office show that there were no students involved in accidents on the
campus or its approaches during the
two week recess.
Traffic, however, picked up considerably today and the provincial
officers will be out in full force to
quell any chance of accidents.
A few minor inconveniences have
been caused to date, but so far there
have  been  no  real  accidents.
Frostbitten ears, stalled cars and
wet text books were the chief extent
of the damages reported.

Senior  Editor  This   Issue- HUGH CAMERON
What s Going On    by bob russell
A Strange Procedure
UBC's long-disputed Peace Council is
aow a legal reality—a chartered organization
under the Alma Mater Society.
Student Council's hasty action in granting the group permission to organize in the
lait hectic moments of the fall term seems
rather strange.
No one will dispute the legal right of
council, oiu* representative government, to
grant permission to organize to any group it
chooses. But, in view of the strong student
opposition to the Peace Council at last Spring's
general AMS meeting, student council's ethi-
oal right to grant the "peacemakers" permission to organize may well be questioned.
Normally, a representative government is
held to have an ethical right to implement
the policies in its platform at the time of its
election. On matters not covered by its platform it is usually ekpected to take only
such action as it believes to be in accordance
with the general public sentiment at the
We do not see how council, after the stern
■rebuff given to previous moves to establish
a peace council, could sincerely believe student opinion to have changed so rapidly.
, The Ubysesy has seen no signs of such
a change. Clearly, then, if council wanted the
Peace Council on the campus the matter
jhould have been submitted either to a refer
endum or referred to the Spring AMS meeting.
Further, the fact that council chose their
last meeting—after the last issue of the
Ubyssey and after students had any other
way of discovering the action— indicates that
they hoped the issue would have become
dead before the opposition got a chance to get
its bearings.
The Ubyssey has no particular objection
■o the Peace Council as such. In fact we are
inclined to feel that the movement will die
a natural death before it does any great
good or any great harm. But we feel that,
if students consider an organization undesirable, they should continue to have the right
to keep such an organization off the campus.
It is not so much the present single instance which troubles us as the dangerous
precedent which the action sets.
It means, in effect, that no matter how
much students may object to any organization, they have no means of stopping its
formation. Even should they openly state
their disapproval in a chorus of nays at an
AMS meeting they have no guarantee that
their representatives will respect their wishes.
One of these days we may wake up to
find the League for Aid to Unemployed Bookmakers flourishing amongst us.
Notes On The Censor's Daughter
Conscience stricken, book-smuggling Canadians can once again |tand up straight and
look themselves in the face.
.i It is no longer- illegal to acquire James
Joyce's "Ulysses." Oh wonder of wonders,
oh lowering of our moral standards, oh bright
new broad mindedness!.!
MacLean's Magazme, instrumental in
lifting the ban, reports an interview with
Internal Revenue Minister McCann (the man
Who controls our censorship) in which the
learned gentleman said "I ban anything which
I wouldn't want my daughter to read."
Now the concern which Mr. McCann
shows for his daughter might be quite admirable—except for the somewhat extra-ordinary
fact that Mr. McCann doesn't have a daughter.
The standard of our censor, then, is his
non-existent daughter. A non-existent daughter heretofor too tender to read "Ulysses."
Perhaps she is growing up. Perhaps one day
she may even be mature enough to read
"The Naked and the Dead."
One hopes so.
It seems io me that the problem^of
keeping Canadian talent in Canada
is gradually being solved in the East.
Canadian artists are beginning to find
that the discrepency in income between Canada and the States is not
only growing smaller, but that the
greater freedom in this country makes
up for it.
E'ut Vancouver has done little to
solve the problem. I am told that the
climate here makes this city an ideal
place for artists and humans, but the
obvious preference of the Vancouver
citizenry for thc publicity-minded,
sentimental, commercial artists instead
of the artist who is creative seems
to drive any talented individuals to
the East or to the States.
There are exceptions, of course.
Cliff Robinson, scene designer, painter, lecturer, personality, all of highest
caliber, has watched talent rise and
producers. There is no room In Vancouver for artistic 'temperment.' There
is a job to do here, and Cliff is the
man to do it.
Cliff Robinson was a camouflage designer developing new techniques during the war. He studied theatre design with Bob Orchard in Alberta,
where he was able to design sets for
actual productions at a university
which manages to produce a reasonable number of plays during the year.
He has taught at Banff, at UBC, and
for the Vancouver School Board.
Cliff is currently designing the sets
for the Players Club one major production, "An , Inspector Calls," and
assisting Miss Somerset's production
of "Masses and Man" with decor and

top professional director who has used
Cliff's designs for three separate productions, Mr. Gill is one of the few
of certain local critics and theatrical \ people in Canada competent to crit
icize Cliff's work. In reply to The
Ubyssey's request for a brief criticism, Mr. Gill was most cooperative.
He stressed Cliff's originality first
and foremost, as well as his ability
'to express the play's theme and mood
brilliantly in paint, canvas and space,
and his complete freedom from theatrical or artistic cliches.
Mr. Gill considers Cliff an outstanding theatre designer and places
great faith in his work.
In a later letter, Mr. Gill sent a
print of Cliffs set design for Robertson Davies' "Fortune My Foe," produced at Hart House this November.
The design is reproduced inset. He also enclosed a criticism of the production by Herbert Whitaker of the
Globe and Mail.
Mr. Whitaker said in part, "The
Hart House Fortune My Foe is most
acceptably housed in the well-angled
setting by Cliff Robinson, whose design introduced some most useful acting areas and pointed up some dramatic stage-pictures."

English Department
Offers Employment
To Student Actors
If the unemployment problem is
troubling you, here's an opportunity
for three week's work as an actor in
"Masses And, Man," being produced
by th? English Department on January 26 and 27.
Mis.; Somerset, the director, Has
issued a request for "A large number of actors for tho exciting choral
e.'ro\va scenes."
A fairly concentrated rehearsal
achcdule makes it possible for student
actors to derive the benefits of acting
in such a complicated and interesting
play without sacrificing an undue proportion of their time.
The first rehearsal is called for Wednesday, today, at 3:30 in the auditorium. Fourteen rehearsals, including
the dress rehearsals, are scheduled
for the following three weeks leading
to production.

Thunderbird Cagers Possible
Horse" Of Evergreen Loop
For 1950
UBC Thunderbird basketballers
are rated as a "dark horse"«in the
Evergreen Conference this season.
In a story running in the Seattle
Post Intelligence on the Evergreen
Conference, UBC is classed as a
second division club, going on last
year's standing and performance.
But with some impressive pre-season victories for the 'Birds before
Christmas, allowance was made
that they might just nose out one
of the' first division teams by the
end of the schedule.
Sharing the "dark horse" colors
with UBC is Whitworth College
Pirates,, who look capable of giving
the other seven teams In the conference a hard tussle.
Slight favorites to take the top
honors in the 1990 season are
Eastern Washington Savages, on the
strength of their highly successful
playing so far this season.
Central Washington Wildcats are
slated for second place with Pacific
Lutheran Gladiators possibly following in the third spot.
Fourth place in the Conference
will probably fall to College of
Puget Sound Loggers,, but anyone
of these first four teams could
change their station by the end
of the year.
Battling it out in the second division will be UBC Thunderbirds,
Whitworth College Pirates, Western
Washington Vikings, and St. Martin's College Rangers.
Of the second division teams,
UBC and Whitworth are given the
best chance of bettering their rank,
according to the Seattle PI story.
Conference basketball for the
locals starts tomorrow night at the
UBC gym when Thunderbirds take
on Pacific Lutheran, followed Saturday night by a game with Central

A life insurance policy is

the protection it gives, it has
borrowing value in case of need.
There are many times in which the
loan value of a policy may prove
of great use.
The important point is to get started
with your insurance programme
at the earliest possible date.
Life insurance rates are determined

lead in the last two minutes, the
existing rule gives the leading team
too much advantage.
Under the present rule a team, if
fouled in the final two minutes, receives one foul shot and possession
of the ball on the side. This makes
it practically impossible for,the defensive team to gain possession of
the ball.
The athletic directors have changed
this rule so that if there is a foul
in the last two minutes either onof-
fense or defense, the player fouled
receives two shots and the ball is
in free play.
The change was made ln an effort
to speed up the game and to give the
defensive team more scoring opportunities. It should eliminate the
last-minute ragging which is prevalent at the present time.

recently instituted a similar rule
