In a statement to the Ubyssey
Wednesday Alderman Proctor said
he reels this matter ls not yet dead.
"If the people of Vancouver want
city council to press for a change

the initiative themselves. Petitions
are one way of doing lt," he said.

Asian Students Gain
From Text Book Drive
Dusty old text books, hidden in dusty old attic rooms, will
mean a solid university education for students in India.
International Student Service is asking UBC students to
dig out the technical relics -for a South East Asian Book Drive-
on campus next week. <* ;	
The quota has been set at 6400
text books . . . one book from every
student on the campus.
Offices are open for donations

in English, and the only available
technical works are written ln the
English language.
This is part of the ISS plan to
aid South East Asian students In

economy and society ls to give
university students the technical
tools", Peter deVooght, ISS president, stild today.

Senior Editor This Issue—MARI STAINSBY
Assistant Editors—JIM  ROSS,  ELSIE  CORBAT
Let's Not Panic
Jim Midwinter's current movement 'o
hold a vice-presidential election this term
appears to us to be a care of hollering before
he gets hit.
Midwinter's contentions are that the student body needs a man in office who could
tajfe over in oase anything prevents the
president-elect from assuming or continuing
in office during the next electoral year. And
presumably Co-ordinator Midwinter has a
number, of important jobs in mind for the
Y-P. Which he believes Council now needs.
.   .,- t-
Student Council itself showed great wisdom in opposing Midwinter's move, which is
why he has taken the thing directly to the
student body. But anyone who finds himself
button-holed to listen to the arguments for an
immediate vice-presidential race now should
consider a few other points which our Coordinator is not so likely to mention.
For one thing we don't believe students
themselves, who are now taking on the initial
rigors of 'examiriationitis, would be in any
mood to turn out in vast numbers to any
election. And prospective candidates would
lie hard' pressed to find the necessary time
to study tiie student issues from a vice-presidential point of view, develop their platforms
and finally throw themselves into the fray
of an all-out campaign.
Ask anyone who has run for any AMS
office. With any opposition at all, you have
to put every ounce of energy snd ideas you
have into your campaign.
Midwinter will argue that an election
now would be an important safeguard against
finding ourselves with a substitute AMS
president who was elected to serve »only as
the head.of WtTS.
The Ubyssey is fully ajrare that this cpuld
happen. But why force ourselves into think •
ing we must take emergency measures now,
when no emergency exists? A hurry-up style
of election is a bad thing at. any time. Therefore, we should rush out to seek an elected
V.P. only if such a move is absolutely necessary, that is, if the president-elect is unable to
carry on and needs a replacement immediate*
President'elect Vaughan Lyon gained of-
fice on a platform that included plans for
inaugeration of the vice-presidential chair.
But he need not feel committeed to rush
those plans into effect at the earlest opportunity, regardless of the fact that haste may lead
to gravely unwise decisions.
The Ubyssey believes the student body
would perfer to thrash the thing out with
plenty of time for full consideration of the
implications involved.
An office that is as important as the
vice-president's could be deserves more preliminary investigation than-any of us now
have time for.
Anchor In The Storm
Expressed campus opinion on troubled
world issues lessened in intensity with departure of the student veteran.
A happy exception to this trend are the
hard working students who make UN Club
meetings some of the best attended of the
noon-hour sessions.
The club has presented some excellent
speakers and its choice of experts and subjects has been at times responsible for a much
better informed student body on current
issues. i
Anyone hearing the masterly appraisal
of the pitfalls on the road to a united Europe
given recently to the club by M. Emile-Paul
Nsggier, of France, was richer, not only in
knowledge, but in association with an educated man in the full sense of the word.
The session on Tuesday when two German students ,here oh ISS scholarships, discussed the uncertain future of their fellow
countrymen was illuminating in another way.
A portion of the debate which followed
echoed with the rigid hatreds which litter the
aftermath of bitter war. The echoes were
muted and in no way connected personally
with the two students addressing the club.
But they were there.
Even more interesting than the "distrust
and hostility" which the speakers attributed
to German reaction to rearmament proposals
was the distrust and hostility of several Canadian students towards influences guilding
policies of the victors in Germany. Recent
release of the head of the Krupp industrial
empire was mentioned and the alleged role
of international cartels in the rise of Nazi
Germany invoked.
There was uneasiness from both sides of
the shadow of the Siegfried Line. Old hatreds, old suspicions, like the old soldier who
becomes their ultimate symbol, never die
until new angers arise to swamp them.
The student cannot hope to hide on a
campus from the howling gales of propaganda
sweeping the world today. The UN Club is
helping provide an anchor in the storm:
knowledgeable opinion.
As I See It
The Everyman Theatre bills Peter Ustinov's "House of Regrets" as a tragic-
comedy, but evidence of real tragady is scant,
while the comedy is nearly always delightfully present. The conflict implied in th?
term tragedy never reaches serious proportions, except that the play concerns a whole
Russian family, all the members of which aro
a little mad, who have fled to London during
the revolution and are living there when tho
play begins at the commencement of World
War  Two.
The conflict comes in the meeting of the
old world with the new, the old members of
the Himily in conflict with the young ones
who have been brought up in modern London. However this conflict is an object for
comedy, not tragedy. Nearly everything in
fact, from feverish Communists to aging Russian generals, i.s ridiculed.
Like many Russian plays "The House of
Regrets" goes along and then stops, not solving any problems, only stating what they aro.
by Joan Basted
The problems however are not burning social
issues and the play is a study of characters
rather than a social thesis. The characters in
spite of being comic are very human, particularly the part of the mother, played by Joy
Coghill, who is the staff upon which all the
other members lean. Any inclinations to
tragedy comes in this role of the mother, who
loves but does not quite understand the
"The House of Regrets" is an entertaining play, and the Everyman production contains some particularly good performances,
among which are those of Joy Coghill, Ron
Wilson as an aged Russian admiral, Jhn Milli-
gan as an almost equally aged general who
plans to return to Russia to usurp the
Bolshevists, Robin Terry, also ancient, who
is a ballet choreographer living amongst his
ballet acores; Mary Butters as a perpetually
smiling old lady, and Sheila MacKenzie, hill-
ariously funny as another ancient, and perennially miserable old woman.
"Faust and the Devil" is the first serious
attempt to turn an opera into a movie. Previous ftlms of this tyj*>e. "llie Barber of Seville"

Certainly it will come as a surprise to those
whose experience with "Faust" is limited to
the Saturday broadcasts from the Metropolitan Opera. Although an Italian text is used
instead of the more usual French, all bii*t
die-hard purists should find "Faust and the
Devil'  an entertaining film.
"Mad Wednesday" brings back tha£ great
silent fijm comedian, Harold Ll.eyd» hi a delightful comedy by that master satirist,, £res-
ton Sturges. Made in 1945, the film's release
lias been delayed till now due to the fierce
battle raging between Sturges and his studio
oyer the latter's unauthorized tampering witji
the picture. Apparently, RKO cut the film an#
added some rather corny touches such as a
talking horse after the filming had been completed, they probably felt that Sturges, wh'q
• threatened legal action, had writen in too
mucji of the kind of social satire that bothers
film executives.
But even with the cuts and the •talking
horse, "Mad Wednesday" is hilarious. F*
opjens brilliantly, with ths last reel of Lloyd'a
1923 classic, "The Freshman." We see our
mild, bespectacled hero lionized as he scores
the winning touchdown in a fantastic football game. Sturges' part of the itim begins
as we dissolve to the office of an advfrising agency twenty years later. Lloyd is discovered in a corner, ah in,competfnt tyofc*

Utters To Thi Editor
pditor, The Ubyssey,
pear Sir:
Questional™ on Student Interests: Are you a socialist? Are you
a lover ot French plays? Are you
an engineer? Are you an Arts-
man? Frustrated? Are you a music
lover? Are y°u a theolog? Or have
you been influenced by Psych and
^Phll Courses at UBC? If none
of these, Just WHO are you? Or,
(s-sh!)   ARE YOU  A  LAWYER?
Curious Student,
Editor,  The  Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
The confounded racket, termed
as music b/ some, which Is wafted
over to the Ubrary stacks from a
loudspeaker outside the Brock
Hall, may be an inspiration for
studying to some; but c^n' it not
be confined to the Bridge Players
and other dormant frequenters and
hlbernators of the Brdck Lounge?
Perhaps they also find it too loud,
I wonder.
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
The 16 cents per student allocated to the tree planting ceremony
for the graduating class will, ou
the basis of 1000 graduates amount
to $150.
After careful consideration we
have decided that the biological,
edaphlc and ecological conditions
on the campus for Siberian dog
wood (Salix stalinica) are at an
optimum. The 1949 report of the
B.C. Forest Service quotes planting charges at 25 dollars an acre.
On the basis ot a 6'x6' spacing
this would amount to 7260 trees
for $160 or about 2 cents per tree.
This includes allowance for cookhouse loss and depreciation on
road  construction.
Enclosed find two cents which
will cover the cost of planting one
tree. If you want to plant another
tree let us know and we will send
you two cents more.
Yours truly,
Pete Small.

In a recent Broadway production of "Showboat" an unknown young man stopped the
show cold with his singing of
"Old Man River."
UBC students will have the
chance to hear now-famous Negro
Basso Kenneth Spencer when he"
presents a full-length recital In
the Auditorium on Thursday,
March 15 at 3:30 p.m.
By special arrangement with Famous Artists Ltd, the Special
Events Committee have been able
to secure this notable attraction
at vastly reduced rates.
Mr. Spencer will give the same
program as he is to present downtown on March 19. The catch is
that students will pay 25 and 50
cents for this privilege whereas
the cheapest seat left for the
downtown pertomance is two dollars.
Since his first Broadway success Kenneth Spencer has climbed
steadily. He is now in constant
demand tor solo recitals in both
the continent and in Europe and
his Columbia records are considered in the big sellers class.
At a recent appearance in Hollywood Bowl he hit low C so
clearly that the note carried to
the farthermost corner of the
great ampltheatre.
Kenneth Spencer's record of achievement is remarkable, and he
himself is none the less a remarkable person and artist. He is a
young man who feels music, who
understands it as an expression
of joy and sorrow. His superb
singing dispels- boundaries between all men.

birds Split
With  Nanaimo
UBC 10, Nanaimo 4
UBC 4, Nanaimo 6
UBC Thunderbirds split the
first two games of (he Free
Press Trophy finals at Nanaimo
last weekend. Birds skated to
a convincing 10-4 victory in the
open Friday, but suffered a
complete reversal of form in
the second game played Saturday.
'Birds missed many scoring opportunities and could not get or-
ganlied until they were three goals
behind. The first game was a fast,
ctose*checklng one, especially in
the first period. Teams were on
equal terms during this period and
Mi* <H the second. After that

but 'Birds didn't want to Join In
and kept their smooth pace scoring
six goals.
Their first line of Drake, Young
and Lindsay accounted for eight
of the 10 goals, the other two being
scored by Gitnar Bailey. Don Adams played his usual outstanding
game in goal even though he was
hampered by an Injured hand. A
very noticeable difference 'in the
UBC's play was evident iii the
defence from their own zone,
VBC outclassed the island team
in the third period but until that
time Nanaimo was a constant
threat. In the second game the outstanding player for UBC was de-
fehefeman  Paul  Kavanaglt.
He constantly broke up scoring
plays by Nanaimo and his bruising body-checks kept Nanaimo from
scoring on many opportunities.
Nanaimo played the same rugged,
hard-checking game and throughout they capitalized on every opportunity to score. 'Birds consistently muffed scoring posslbilitie.H
and coupled with the outstanding
performance of Nanafmo's goal-
tender they were kept to four goals.
